Washington, March 2 • —Th" resolu-
tion offered iu tne senate by Mr. Hoar
was adopted requesting the pres* lent to
transmit to tho seuato uii dispatches,
correspondence, etc., from November,
1875, to 1878, concerning tiio pacifica-
tion of tho impending conflict in Cuba.
Mr. Mills was ree igniz. nl at this point
lu support of the Cuban resolution in-
troduced by liitn Monday.
He said tho resolutions heretofore bo-
foro tho somite wore stops iu tho right
direction, but very short steps. Tho
people of Cuba had far greater claims
noon the United States than more re-
cognition of tho belligerency. If I ' . . i
struck for liborty today tho hear' * tho
American people would bear i. . i
thy and so if Poland or Hut y i\f

United States hatl much closer :.s
to Cuba than to Ireland or P ;r: .
Hungary for it was part of t . \V
Hemisphere ovor which the Mo .:
trine extended tho irtiueucp • .s
country. Mr. Mills declared r the
Monroe doctrine was a law of ; * •-
tion aud as such God tub tin . f
it. It was tlio same right of se
tion which an individual exe: ■•. .es in
abiting a uuisanco or dostroyiug a

"had been to resist any tr.iii f of CuV :i !
to auothcr monarciiy. Tho Uuite l i
States had sto )d by as a j r.ler and pro-
vented Cuba from :r g to France cr
England, and if we insisted on keeping j
Cuba in tho possession of S; alti, was it j
not tho moral obligatio i of tho United ;
States to see that Spain gave Caba fair
governmcut; to seo that tho heel of
Spanish despotism was lifted from tho
Cuban people? The day will como
when tho American conscience will be
aroused to its guilt iu pennittiug tho
opprossion of Cuba, and when that con-
sciousness comes tho Amoricau- poople
will fill this chamber with senators who
will stop that oppression."
Tho senator then read o. the atroci-
ties attributed to General Wcyler and
"This is the work f l ac atrocious
scoundrel. Ho could not bo in Cuba
today if tho United States would draw
