The Cuban revolutionary party, through their New York junta,
have chosen Captain Charles Cassilly Cook of Ohio as their new
legal counsel. Cook's past appointments include president of the
Ohio Board of Pardons and Captain of the First Ohio Infantry during
the Spanish-American War. Cook is a well-known clubman from a
prominent Cincinnati family, formerly a Democrat. As a lawyer, he
has written on topics including insurgent soldiery in Cuba, and the
heresy of the financial theories of both William Jennings
Bryan as well as Coin's Financial School, written by
William Hope Harvey.
