It: HAND lesson awaits the
substantial people nt Cuba
of having to learn how to
ch ingo their long-inaln-tallied
attitude of ctltlellng tho nf
fnliH nf their government Into an atti
tude of actlo paitlclpitlon In govern
ing. In a way they resemble pampered
child! en who have nlwujs had eveiy
whim giatlfled. Veiy soon they will
bo like those same chlldien after ad-
cislty ovei takes their pal cuts and
they, themselves, without ndequutc
pic paint Ion, are thrown suddenly upon
tho wot Id. Wo do not mean that under
tho rule of Spain the substantial, ta
paylng peoplo of Cuba had everything
they wanted. Hut they at least linil no
responsibility; they wcio fue to find
fnult; nnd, ns fnult-lliuUny usually do,
they exnggeiated what didn't suit
them nnd weie not alwaj.s piompt In
giving due credit for whnt did.
A llttlo while ago these pinpoity
owning Inteiests In Cuba weio fieely
criticizing and deriding tho govern
ment of Intel ontlon. Almost evety act
of tho Amei leans dtew ticini them s.u
castlo comment. They took delight in
letting tho world know their con
tempt for American clumsiness. Wo
wero honest; It Is true a clictim
stance equivalent in their minds to
fltupldlty. And we wero energetic
a trait that bored them, seeing that
llfo Is long ami full of time. Hut wo
hud no finished manuets, no elegant

up to tlielr Ideal of what constitutes
the Iriepio.ichable, fine gentleman.
Therpfnrp they diow nloof, looked on
stipeicilloiisly as, we tried to the best
of our ability nnd unselfishly to put
their confused nffalis Into shape, nnd
with Hhrugglng of shoulders left us
to our fate. That was when most of

promises nf Independence, like the fine
phrases of Spain, were to bo without
Hut lately a change has ronie over
the spirit of their dreams, i:ents
have shown dearly Hint It Is the
Ametlciin Intention fooii to turn the
task of governing Cuba oer to the
I'ub.ins. forthwith there Is a rush to
heaibiuai teis to got us to do the hard
woik befoie we go. Theio Is the fram
ing of a tnrlft law, for lnstnnce. It Is
full of dynamite and needs handling
with care. The Cubans nio afraid to
tackle It. Therefore they beseech
tli'iici il Wood and send delegates to
the president lit Washington nsklng
him to do tho Job for them; to frame
the schedules nnd put them Into opera
tion In little of tho sovereign power
that the United States now wields, to
that when tho Oubnn republic pets up
for Itself Its statesmen will hae the
main sttuctuic of recnue legislation
already built nnd In use, and will need
simply to iese a few Incidental de
tails. Veiy wisely both President Hnospvelt
nnd licner.il Wood havo respectfully
declined to nnticipato a duty so ob
viously Cuban. The pioperty owning
Intei est of that Island have made
their bed nnd must lie In it. They
hao wanted or pretended to want
sclf-gnvc rnmeiit and they nre to lme
it. This means they must face the re
sponsibilities as well as the glories; In
other wotds, they must woik out their
own political salvation, If necessary,
In fear and trembling.
