notorious character dnring the early

account'of the number of Indians and
Chinamen he killed. It is ev dent the

without being discovered.

Palma's Message to Congress Expresses
Admiration af Roosevelt,
Havana, April 8. Congress reas
sembled -today and will probably con
tinue in session three extra month on
account of the necessity for the enact
ment of many law before all the de
partments of the-government get thor
oughly under way.' A message from
President Paima was read. The mes
"Our relation with the United States
continue to be close and cordial. Much
more gratifying I the noble and reso
lutely favorable attitude of the presi
dent of that great republic. It is
enough to remember the , obstacles
which bis stubborn will have overcome
in negotiating the reciprocity treaty
and obtaining the ratification thereof,
and hi firm purpose to summon a spec
ial session of congress to definitely Ap
prove of it. Besides the sympathy and
respect which w inspire among the
American people by our exemplary con
duct as an independent people who re
alise the duties and responsibilities of
ritisenship, these circumstances power
fully contribute in solidifying the good
understanding between the two nation.
"It is our interest to worthily culti
vate these sentiments and we cannot do
so better than by carrying out our obli
gations to the Washington government
expeditiously, frankly and correctly,
whether it i by grant ef what we ought
to grant, or refusing what we consider
ourselves justified in refuting.
"The government i at present occu
pied with the Isle of Pines matter, and
it ha reason to hope that the settle
ment thereof will be satisfactory to
President Palma expres the hop
that the question .of incorporating into
the treaty all the provisions of the Piatt
amendment Will soon be settled, and
add that after this ha been done it
will seem unnecessary that the Piatt
amendment shonld remain any longer a
part of the constitution.
