AMERICAN SOLDIERS MAY GUARD CUBA. Troops Are Likely to Remain on Termination of Present Civil Government. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 25 January 1908
AMERICAN SOLDIERS MAY GUARD CUBA. Troops Are Likely to Remain on Termination of Present Civil Government. Washington.—lt is the hope of the American Government, as expressed by the Administration, that our provisional supervision of affairs in Cuba may be ended In the spring of 1909. The President’s promise is explicit, but it will be noticed that while American civil rule will end at the time stated, nothing is said about a withdrawal of troops. The chances are seemingly that a year from next March or April there will be witnessed the spectacle of a native Cuban governing body, with United States troops within easy trumpet call of the capital. Fear is felt, though notr expressed openly, that the elected President will not be given the security and quiet he must have to conduct effectually his administration during the first few months of its existence, unless there are enough American soldiers to assure order.

PRESENCE OF TROOPS INSURE PEACE. Goldfield Citizens Are Pleased at Latest Decision of President. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 25 January 1908
PRESENCE OF TROOPS INSURE PEACE. Goldfield Citizens Are Pleased at Latest Decision of President.

It is admitted that the presence of the troops removes all danger of an outbreak on the part of the Western Federation sympathizers and as the soldiers will probably remain until other means have been found to afford the necessary protection, the possibility of serious trouble growing out of the labor situation is very remote. The Stock Board reflected the feeling of optimism in the camp, following the receipt of the news from Washington and the general opinion now is that business will rapidly improve.

Commissioners Say It Is Carelessness [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 25 January 1908
Commissioners Say It Is Carelessness Absolute lack of system and method iu road coustiuction is the strongest impression made upon the highway commissioners on their preliminary inspection trip. The board which consists of George 8. Edwards, John Parker and George J. Trott, have gone over the two proposed routes, up the coast to Gaviuta and over the San Marcos pass. Just as important as thorough construction under the supervision of a competent engineer, more important, iu fact, says Mr. Edwards, will be provision for proper care of the road after completion. Want of attention and repairs and maintenance, is responsible for the bad condition in which the commissioners found tiie highways over which they have been traveling.

It means cutting off mail order sheets which have been the means of luring the dollar from its own neighborhood to swell the fortune of the millionaire in the big city. It means that the advertisement of the merchant iu his home paper, will be more effective and that advertising space in the local paper will therefore be more iu demand.
