VETERANS HOT AT CRUISER PATRIA


PRESIDENT GOMEZ GOES ON CRUISE


Prohibition of Officers From President's Decree Does Not


Attending Breakfast Con-
sidered Insult.


-'CORCHING LETTERS
WRITTEN TO GOMEZ


general Menocal, President.Elect,
Steps In Breach and Prevents Them
From Being Sent-Veterans Post-
pone Breakfast Till He is President.


President Gomez appeared to have
stirred up a good-sized hornets' nest
in the Association of Veterans, some-
thing by the way that be has done
on more than one occasion before.
As a result of the feeling against
the president now the Mambi break-
fast planned for December 2, has
been postponed until next May, or
until Cuba bas another president.
The cause or the latest rumpus is
the order of President Gomez that
officers of the army should not be al-
lowed to attend the 'lambi breakfast.
which was planned iu honor of Gener-
al Nunez on the occasion of his re-
election as president of the National
council Similar orders were also is-
sued by General Riva to the police
force of Havana.
The veterans considered that they
have been grautlously insulted and
they resent it deeply. They ridicule
any excuse which might be given by
the president or chief oS police. The
political campaign they say Is over
and the breakfast was purely a veter-
an affair. any officer or policeman
who fought in Cuba's war of Indepen-
dence had a perfect right to take part
in the celebration. They say if the
political campaign had not been over
there might have been spme excuse
for fne r'Tde, -bt -rwttntttre-re tr
no excuse at the present time.

MENOCAL HOLOS THEM.
Some of the veterans were so red
hot over the action of President Go-
mez that they sat down and wrote him
sundry hot and expressive letters in
which they spoke of the chief execu-
tive officer of the nation In any but
complimentary terms. That these let-
ters were not sent by special messen-
gers to the president was due to Gen-
eral Menocal, the -president-elect. He
advised coolness and calm and coun-
seled the veterans to overlook the
slight 'which the president had appar-
ently administeredto them.

BREAKFAST POSTPONED.
The action ot the president and the
chief of police removed from the pos-
.sibllliy of attending the breakfast so
many persons whose presence was de-
sired that General Nufiez, in whose
honor the brealkast was planned, sug-
gested that it be postponed until next
May. This the council decided to do.

WILSON PLANS FOR
EXTRA SESSION SOON
(By Associated Press.)
Washington. Dec. 24.-Plans for the
extra session of congress early in the
next administration will be discussed
at a conference at the home of Presi-
dentitelect Wilson at Princeton the
last of this week. Mr. Wilson will dis-
cuss the plans with Congressman Un
derwood, the Democratic house leader
The definite date for the convening
of congress will then be agreed upon
Plans for tariff legislation will alse
be discussed and decided upon.

WILSON SEES CLARK.
Trenton. N. J., Dec. 24.-Woodrow
W'llson held a conference today with


Speaker Champ Clark. The two con-
sulted with each other for some time.
When the present speaker took his
leave it was said that the extra ses-
sion of congress would probably be
about March 15 Cabinet possibll-I


"Send Her to aris"-Vis-
its New World Ports.


The long talked of and much ridi-
culed cruise of the Cuban cruiser Pat.
ria which some patriotic Cubans de-
sired to "send to Paris," is to take
place-not to Paris, but to various
New World ports. The idea is tha'
the world shall know that Cuba is al-
ready a "naval power"
President Gomcez issued a decres
yesterday which will send or rather
start the Patria on a 14,200-mile cruise
which will begin on January 21. The
cruiser will sail from Havana first to
Santiago de Cuba, after which she will
touch at the following ports: George-
town, Pernambuco and Rio Janeiro.
After a 12-day visit at Rio, the Patria
will sail for Buenos Aires, where she
is expected to arrive on March 4. Later
she will sail for Montevideo, Santos,
Pernabuco. Georgetown, La Gialra.
Colon, Kangston (Jamaica), Vera Cruz
and New Orleans.
New Orleans will be the last port
touched by Ihe cruiser before lea'-in
again for i ana. She will leae.-
that port on .lay 12, provided her na-
vigators have not tried some overland
route during her cruise By leaving
on May 12 the officers and sailors
who surt ive will be here for the in-
auguration ceremonies on May 20.
Then they will probablybe hailed as
conquering heroes.

an.-Miguel de Cervantes.

Nature has given to woman forti-
tude enough to resist a certain time,
but not enough to resist completely
the inclination which they cherish-
SClaude Joseph Porat.

I think it takes a great deal from,
a woman's modesty, going into public
life, and modesty is her greatest
charm.-Mrs. Henry Ward Beecher.

Women who preach are like pigs
that dance. They don't do it well,
but the wonder is that they can do it
at all.-Johnson.

A woman may always help her hus-
band by what she knows, however lit-
tle;. by what she halt knows, or mis-
knows, she will only tease him.--John
Ruskin.

The anger of a woman is the great-
est evil with which one can threaten
his enemies.--Chillon.

For where is any another in the world
Teaches such beauty as a woman's
eyes? -Shakespeare

Ye are stars of the night, ye are gems
of the morn;
Ye are dewdrops, whose luster illum-
ines the thorn;
And rayless that night is, that morn-
ing unblest,
Where no beam in your eye lights up
peace In the breast.
-Thomas Moore.

A termagant wife may, therefore, in


some respects be considered a toler-
able blesslng.-Washington Irving.

With women the desire to bedeck
themselves is always the desire to
please-Jean Francois de Marmontel.

And vowing "I will ne'er consent"

WELL, WELL-4HY?

Not long since a gentleman was
passing through a certain town in
which his only child, an attractive
girl well advanced in her teens, was
finishing her education. Having a lit-
tle time on his hands, he decided
to have some conversation with the
principal of the school. He was re-
ceived with great cordiality and his
daughter's attainments were duly de-
scribed.
"I think," said the lady principal to
the proud parent, just as he was about
to take his departure, "that you ought
to be very happy, my dear sir, to be
the father of such a large family, all
the members of which appear to be
perfectly devoted to one another. I
think it is most charming that it
should be so."
"Large family! Devoted to one an-
other!" gasped the visitor in undis-
guised amazement. "What can you
possibly mean, madam?"
"Oh, (but I am sure they are devot-
ed to one another," responded the prin-
cipal, beaming through her glasses.
"Why, no less than seven of Hilda's
brothers have been here during the
term to take her out, and she tells
me she expects the tall one with the
dark blue eyes again tomorrow."-New
Fun.

DECLINED WITHOUT THANKS.

Mr. Carnegie can hardly be gratl-
tied by the general reception of his
plan for pensioni.g presidents of the!
United States. Everybody re~ogn'zes
the impropr:ety of th .Sieme.
The most charitable explanation of
Mr. Carnegie's act in undertaking it is
that he wishes to shame the Ameri-
can people into an obvious piece of
justice to the men to whom they have
given the highest honor in their pow-
er. There is little doubt as to the de-
sirability of making some provision
for these; but it may be questioned
f Mr. Carnegie is subtle enough to
have conceived this way of bringing
' bout.
He has seen his money everywhere
accepted with such unabashed grati-
tude that he probably has come to be-
lieve that no offer w"'l be refused on a
nere scruple of propriety. It ought to
do him good to have this offer de-
;lined without thanks.-Provldence
