fortunes have been made from the island's plan

tection for insular sugargrowmg interests at
Washington at the hands of lawmakers and tar-

cheap labor for working the sugar-growing es
tates have come episodes in political maneuver
ing not all the details of which would stand the

make sugar a natural crop also make natural
cultivation of a large variety of luscious fruits,
use of which on inexpensive terms has made liv

comparatively recently that growers have real

producers in eastern markets. 'Even now there
are handicaps tc the situation, but the gains of
