Degree Type



This study is a continuation of ones previously made by Mr. Dorsey Walker and Miss Fannie Allen. Not only does it give the Atlanta daily's attitude toward the second intervention, but also a careful and somewhat detailed study of the August revolution of 1906, its background and results, with special attention to the Taft and Bacon missio Also not without value is the ever present race problem between white and Negro, a sore spot in Cuban as well as American affairs. Therefore, a degree of emphasis has been placed on the status of the Cuban Negro, and the attitude of the southern white toward him.
