to have been held Monday evening, but It
failed to materialise.
George F. Munro, superintendent for

the paving men were anxious to elect a

with him that with a good engineer a com

In the hearing It waa contended by Der

under the Siocumb law, aa he had made
no sales of liquor himself and his govern

for the acts of his agent. It waa admit

Judge held that both men were guilty as
charged, so he Imposed the fines, which

he has been onnrected with the American

Mr, Murphy, who has hsd ample oppor

"I do not think," sakt he, "that the rest

Cubans can be extinguished during this

classes in Cubathe rich and the ex

as in this country. The unscrupulous and
adventurous spirits of the richer class can
always rely upon a big following from the
poorer class, and a revolution can be
started there In little or no time.
"I think as a rule that the native Cuban
would prefer the Spanish to the American
occupation. Under the Spanish. system the
country was run on the loot, rob, tax,
graft and brigandage System, and the Span

of other uncut hams lay on the table.
Also there was a number of lard cans
