r.h.Lrm.n of the I'nlted Stater foreign
relation committee of the semue. wr.s
jk.il what would I the probable eff-ct
of Stnor Canovas' death upon these re
lations. He replied;
"8iila m-eU a great loss in the dtnir.
of 8. nor Canovas. lie was the mam.
s:ay of the Sponl"h (fovtrnmrn and
withiiJ was a man of great ability. It
is .llllKM.lt to say from this distance
who will tike his place, but It will not
he SagaMa. Th liberals will hardly
come into power as a result of this as.
saaslnutlon. Thw same party will remain
in power. I believe, and I do not lock
for any Immediate change In the rel&.
lions txUti.-iff, l.tween S;ftin and Cuba
or between Spain and the Vnlted States.
Spain certainly has no rwuson to find
fault with the treatment accorded her
by the L'nlted States. Surely no coun
try with a colony standing ln the rela
tion to another country that Cuba stands
to the United States ha even ben as
well treated by th other country Inter.
sted aj Spain has by the United States.
We have enforced our neutrality law
even to the extent of arresting and Im
prisoning our own cttlieni who are
charged with filibustering. We have al
lowed th? destruction ot millions of dol
l..r" worth of American property, and
the Spanhir.U in Cuba have even arres'..
ed our citizens and put them in their
prison. No country ever received more
lenient treatment at the hands of any
nation that Spain has revived at the
hands of the United Suites. I do not
think, however, truit Spain can hold!
Cuba. I do not think she will ever con.
quer the Islands. I believe that Spain
will be worn out at the end of the next
dry season and that she will have t-
Give up the Island."
