BOTH PARTIES DISSATISFIED
Relations Between Madrid and Ha
New York, Jan. 19. According to
the Tribune correspondent at Huvana
badgering the government occupies
the attention of two classes In Cuba
at present. One class Is the conserva
tives, who were predisposed to fault
tinding. Determined to have no share
in the administration of autonomy,
they are now congratulating them
selves. The responsibility of implant
ing that system is indeed a heavy one,
ana tuose wtio do not snare in It are
The other class is a new creation.
Its members call themselves radical
autonomists. They arc dggressive
and critical. If the authorities de
part from the straight path of colon
ial home rule they cry "lapse" from
the housetops. The amnesty such as
has already been extended does not
satisfy them. They demand that
Wcyler and all Ills works be dlsa.
vowed, and nail for reparation in indi
vidual cases. They also insist on im
mediate reform of variious abuses and
the remoyal of the press censorship.
In short, they have a program which
causes them to be called both dis
guised insurgents and embryo rebels
It is unfortunate for the regime of
autonomy that misunderstandings
have arisen between Madrid and Ha
vana. The opposition pretends not
to know the Cuban government is.
Captain-General Blanco or the auton
omist cabinet. Where geuuine doubts
exist they are solved satisfactorily by
electing to rest rest under the author
ity of General -Blanco. But tho mis
understandings between thoSagasta
ministry and the autonomist cabinet
cannot be settled so easily. The au
tonomist constitution is a comprehen
sive one. It may be that its authors
did not thoroughly understand their
The control of the ludiciary was a
delecate matter. The autonomist
cabinet thought it had been organ
ized in favor of home-rule appoint
ments, but the minister of the colo
nics has recently made the nomina
tions of judges and magistrates. The
cabinet protest. Madrid responds, re
gretting the mistake, but explains
that provisional autonomy did not go
into effect until January 1, and these
nominations, though gazetted now,
were in reality made before that
These embarassments, while annoy
ing, are not of a serious nature. If
autonomy was acceptable to a major
ity of the people of Cuba they would
not jeopardize its success. But it
must be stated that the majority of
the people on the island, in tiie In
surgent camps or within the lines of
Spanish sovereignty, arc not paying
much heed to autonomy as a political
system. The government, which
means Captain-General Blanco, and
not the autonomist capitalist, is
asked what the further plans of the
government are, and when they will
be put In force.
The news from Madrid is that the
plans of General Blanco's military op
erations have been published and haye
had a good effect. The plans have not
been published. The army is in igno
rance of the prospective plans. The
intelligent populace has bejSnled to
look for the close of the ingurrcctlon
within a month, but this Is looked
upon as impossible.
The condition In Cuba ia viewed
through 'dllferent glasses. The ru
mor abouc the 'conduct of the war
brings radical autonomists to the
front with their series of Interrogato
ries. Since the insurgents will not
accept autonomy, these radicals want
the government to ask Gomez and his
associate chiefs what they will ac
cept. The newspapers began by pumping
their Inquiries into Senor Galvez, the
president of the autonomist cabinet.
He responded by stopping his sub
scriptions. General Blanco was not a
subscriber, and when the questions
were turned on him that method of
resentment was not open.
The autonomists and reformists,
who formed a fusion organization to
support the government, arc also
asked what their next step Is. Many
think that in trying autonomy. Spain
played her last card, but they were
sure she would not turn trumps.
The conservatives have no plans be
yond picking flaws. They agree that
Blanco's military policy will not
bring peace. They are of one mind
in denouncing the United States for
forbidding a return to Weylcr's policy
but they realize that the prohibition
is an effective one. Some of them
would go to war with the United
States, in order to lose Cuba in a way
that would be consistent with their
Idea of Spain's honor.
Back of all Is the Idea of American
intervention. It can hardly be said
to be longer in the background.
Henceforth it must be discussed as a
probability which all parties in Cuba
recognize. With the insurgents it is
evidently a definite purpose. To
Spain's government in the Antilles it
may present itself either as a refuge
or a retreat. Irreconcilable Spaniards
dread it. The property-owners and'
the commercial classes welcome the
But while this Is the feeling, It

conditions in Cuba will not of them

Progress in Marion County tfryan
for Judges and Clerks.
Laiceview, Ore., Jan. 15. (Special
to The Journal.) A meeting of the
People's party and Democratic county
central committees was held at the
court House here today and a Union
of Populists, Democrats and Silver
Republicans was formed on county
ticket without a dissenting voice.
The division of the ticket is to
be as follews: People's party: county
Judge, clerk, treasurer and coroner.
Demecratic: sheriff, commissioner,
assessor, school superintendent, sur
veyor. Each party will maintain a
separate organization but nominate a
Union ticket in a Joint convention.
Following delegates were elected to
the state conventiens:
Peeples: S. P. Moss, A. W. Charlton,
J. C. Oliver.
Demecrats: Hon. B. Daly, M. T.
Waters, Joseph Lane.
The primaries were set for April 16,
ana county convention ioi April zj.
Progress for union in Marlon county
has been rrade the past week. Mr.
Kigdon's address to the People's party
central committee was well received
The People's party is practically a
unit for a union county ticket. The
date set for their primaries is Satur
day, March 12,and county convention,
Wednesday, March 10.
Tho county court, at its present
session, has recognized to a certain
extent the request of a Union com
mittee composed of D. J. Fry (Dem)
Geo. W. Weeks (Pop.) and D. C.
Sherman (Sil. Rep.) for tho appoint
ment of a judge and clerk of election
for the minority party who supported
Bryan. The Bryan voters were the
only party opposed to- ihe Repub
licans and thus had a right to de
mand one clerk and one Judge.
In the presidential election in many
precincts the entire board cf clerks
and judges were supporters of McKIn
ley. The new list, as published else
where, does not do the Bryan voters
justice in some precincts. But tho
county court probably did tho best
they could under the circumstances.
A board of election judges and clerks
all of one party Is not fair, legal, de
cent or just. Yet that was the actual
status in many precincts. For in
stance, the statement is made that
the persons on as Democrats,
in Salem No. 4, were both Mc
Kinley supporters. The are again
on as Democrats.
Tills is not the Intent of the law.
We.do not bclleyc it is -the desire of
the county court to violate the spirit
of the law in the least particular, but
they are besought to appoint certain
persons under outside pressure of Re
The straight Bryan or Silver organ
ization have asked for nothing but
what is fair and lawful In this matter
and believe they should have had rec
ognition in each precinct. We be
lieve the court has uimed honestly to
do this but has not entirely succeeded.
