MAT THE SUGAR TARIFF STIMULUS HAS DONE
A remarkable analysis of sugar production in
the United states and a -.forecast of a futui-e in
whichi the United States will be clear of the
world prices as fixed at Hamburg, is made in
the latest issue of Willett & Gray's Sugar Trade
Journal. The imiuts are 'stated with admirable
brevity and clearness as follows r
"Counting for the use of the U. S. this 330,000
tons excess, together with 20,000 tons increase
in Porto Kico and 84,000 tons increase in do

The constitution was the work of an extraordinary
group of rotn. such as has seldom been Eeen living
at the Fame time in any country and such as had
rrvcr been brought together in any other country to
undertake the immensely difficult task of. framing a
fundamental instrument of government for a nation.
The nation was then a small one, and it is one of
the most striking tributes to the genius and fore
sight of the men who designed that form of govern
ment for three millions of people that it should have
proved fitting to serve the needs of 93,000,000..
r It taught you to recognize that a free government
must be founded upon a sense of right, upon the re
spect of every man and community for the rights
of every other man and community, to the exclusion
of all violence.
It impressed upon every person the sense that the
will of the whole people, duly ascertained, and act
ing through the prescribed forms, must prevail.
The doctrine of popular sovereignty is a fine and
wholesome principle when it is exercieed in the duiy
prescribed and duly observed forms, just as that doc
trine may be the source of turmoil and injury to a
people which rush heedlessly to carry out its arbi
trary will, at the impulse of sudden passion.
In particular, you have shown the world how it
is possible to reconcile national unity with the ex
istence of local self-government in larger and smaller
communities, over the Immense spaces of a conti
nent, a problem which, a century and a half ago,
everyone would have thought insoluble.
Thus has the constitution of the United States be
come, by the example of its workings, and the halo
of fame which surrounds it, one of the vitalizing
forces of the world. Let us honor the memory of the
illustrious men who rendered this incomparable and
enduring service not only to you but to all mankind.

of fresh eggs is from the Bellina ranch. Thirty minutes
from the center of the city, we have a few acres left ad

A very small cish payment will pay for one of these acre-

to the chicken-raising business in this locality, interview
