CUBA S SOLDIER CHIEF STORIES OF C0DUEL1M
Characteristics of Jose Miguel
Gomez, Her New President.
SMALL MAN, BUT A FIGHTER.
Credited With Making Mar Spanish
Soldiewa Into 'Cuban Lao Than Any
Other Warrior In tha Buih Honaat
This story begin away back In 1S0X
when a squad of Spanish soldiers were
observed running rapidly through a
vtllnge street In Cuba. Just in their
rear, emitting loud outcries and prod
ding valiantly at the rear guard with
a machete, was a short, pudgy Cuban
youth, saddle colored from months in
the bush. Later he returned, crest
fallen, to make his report to the gen
eral commanding the patriot army.
"My head Is bowed In shame. Honor
general," said he. "1 let two of them
And Just for that the general com
manding kissed Jose Miguel tin me a on
both cheeks and made him a captain
on the spot. That was the first public
appearance of the gentleman who was
recently Inaugurated president of Cu
ba. He made other appearance of a
similar sort all the way through the
ten years' war. Hy dint of strict ap
plication to business and a remarkably
keen eye between gun sights he won
his way to a major generalship at the
end. IVwn In Cuba they say that he
made more Spanish soldiers Into Cu
ban lace than any other man who
fought In the bush. Wherever one
passes a bit of pockmarked wall and
finds au anelent crono who can tell
something of the wall's tradition one
Is apt to find that General Jose Miguel
Gomes and a firing party and a dozen
or so of the soldiery of Spain figure in
This is regarded as excellent .mili
tary tactics In bush fighting. If the
Spaniards caught the Cubans and
could conveniently pen them up In one
of their neat little concentration pens
they did so. But If the transportation
facilities were bad they Just shot
tbem out of hand. And the roads
were extremely bad throughout the
Pearl of the Antilles at that period.
So with the Cubans. In a moment of
mirth General Gomes Is said to have
once estimated that If Cuba conld
have obtained a fair price for the
tanned hides of the Spanish soldiers
she could have well financed the war
and had enough left over to make
No one should Imagine, however,
that Gomes was a bloodthirsty butch
er. He merely followed the lines laid
down for him and fought for Inde
pendenceand because he liked It. In
Havana they think that be still likes
to fight They are prepared to wager
that, whatever lse he may accom
plish In bis administration, he will
keep that island policed as It never
has been under Cuban rule. If neces
sary a short, pudgy, saddle colored
Cuban gentleman will take to the sad
dle himself and hang revolutionists all
over the landseape. And his soldiers
will refer to him as ei presldente.
In some respects he resembles the
lamented Castro of Venezuela. His
father owned a large cattle ranch, and
Jose Miguel owns the same ranch,
with others he has annexed In the In
tervals of making war. And his idea
of making war Is to make war and to
keep on making war until the other
party gets tired. He had hardly
learned to read and write In the Col
lege of San Salvador before he left
bis home In Snnctl Splrltls, Santa
Clara province, to volunteer for the
ten years' war. He liked lighting so
well that, although he came out with
the title referred to. be had hardly
looked the old homestead over and
ordered the barn painted before he
started In on a fresh war. ne kicked
this one up all by himself almost.
They call It now the "little war," but It
was quite a lively little garden party
at that while it lasted. Then he went
home until the wnr which resulted in
American Intervention came.
Since then he has hnd comparatively
little to do. Of course there was that
occasion when he rode Into a village
at the head of a body of troops, under
President Palma's administration, and
announced that If Palma didn't bunt
the mourners' bench in a hurry he
was going to take the government
apart to see what made it tick. And
he defied the supreme court and about
every one else In sight. I!ut through
all bis fighting he had the people with
him. Palma hud him imprisoned orne
on a charge of conspiracy, but Gomes
denied that he had conspired. He was
merely planning to upset the govern
ment, he said, so of course I'alma or
dered him released. What else could
he do? In the Intervals of fighting
and politics Gomez takes an Intelli
gent Interest in the primeval instinct
which makes one chicken of the male
sex fight another ditto. A mouth or
so ago he was arrested at a cockfight
in Havana, but he explained that away
satisfactorily. He had Just happened
In to see the chickens fight, he said.
He Isn't to be considered a pro-American.
The uprising which ended the
Palma regime was largely of his doing,
and he blamed the need for revolution
npon the United States authorities.
But he is honest and energetic, and If
the people don't consider him a states
man they have a sweeping respect for
his ability as a fighter. Like a good
many other fighters, he loves his fam
ily. When bis sons were about to en
ter college he studied their lessons
along with them at night. K'-en now
he can speak- very little English, but
stick a pin In this:
He can fight New York Globe.
