threatening letter from alleged Black Hand
sources If he does not quit pushing his
crusade to close the resorts In the red light

ceived this morning he Is slsted for doom
February 30, only five days off.
For a msn who is doomed to die-in such
a tragic manner and in Much a brief time,
Mr. Tyrrell maintains a remarkably cheer

as the production of some crank and gives
It little consideration, except to run the
Writer of it down and punish him, if pos
sible, for a screed that briDgs him In bad

The letter, which was sent to Mr. Tyrrell
In care of the police station and was evi
dently mailed at the postofflce, runs as

"I do not know what my future worfc Is
to be," said Charles E. Magoon, late pro
visions! governor of Cua, and former gov
ernor of the Panama canal sone, today. "1
have not seen Judge Taft since my return
from the island, but the opinion In Wash
ington seems to be that I am to go the
Philippines for a period."
Judge Magoon stated that he had heard
and read a good deal which connected him
by way of rumor with a portfolio In the
Taft cabinet, but had no Intimation from
the president-elect that anything of the
kind was contemplated. The Philippine
berth Is not exactly to the liking of the
man who haa made good at the head of
tha governments of Panama and Cuba,
but will be accepted If tendered.
Judge Magoon arrived in the city yester
day and la stopping at the Lincoln hotel.
He will remain here until Wedensday,
when he will go to New 'York and will be
in Washington for the inauguration. H
will then erturn to Lincoln, where he will
remain until pill, when he will leave for a
six months' tour of Kuiope.

one. That Is something no one csn snsw;r.
The troubles ot all Latin republics have
s risen from racial characteristics. These
characteristics csnnot, . of course, be
changed by sdminlstering a government
for two snd one-half years. I am, bow
ever, very optimistic in regard to the
Cuban people and their government. The
citisens are anxious to preserve their in
dependent government snd their sover
eignty as a nation snd I think thst they
will make gresl efforts to sdjust such dif
ficulties ss may arise. I am greatly pleased
to note that those which have arisen since
the government was returned to their
hands have been satisfactorily settled.
"The grestest danger which all Latin
republics encounter Is In connection
with the elections. These ere grestly
feared by those at the head of the gov
ernments, all of them fearing that an
election cannot be pulled oft without trou
ble. This very apprehension of danger Is
responsible for a great deal of It. The
administration uses its armed men to see
that no wrong Is done, snd the opposition
alao has out forces to make certain that it
Is fairly treated. A clash Is almost cer
tain. The Cubans have now seen two
elections where all officers were elected.
Both ot these were as fair and legal as tho
elections ot any country. There was also
lutely no military or police Interference
and even' thing was as orderly as in the
"The Cubans have seen two of these
elections snd their fesrs have been greatly
dissipated; they are much encouraged. For
myself I would ssy thst the Cuban gov
ernment would run along very nicely until
the next presidential election, which will
occur In about five eurs. Thst will be
the first dangerous period. I have great
hopes that the people will profit by the
example which has been set for them,
however, and that they will go through
the crisis without sny serious trouble."
