It will be seen from these figurts
that the addition of 300.000 tons of
free sugar to the supply is not a
dangerous item of itself; that is,
not dangerous in the sense of Hood
ing the general market. What lo
cal producers fear, however, is (1)
competition in the coast market
where a third of our sugar is sold;
(2) nn increase of the amount of
sugar admitted ftee from the Phi
lippines at some future time. On
the other hand, it is felt that the
free sugar let in from the Phi'ip
pines will give the beet antra r men
a strong argument against the ad
mission of more from Cuba. An

Provisions and numerous articles required by the farmer for the

If the farmer will let us know what he has to sell, when it
will be ready for market, how packed and how to be shipped,
'with probable quantities in each shipment; give us in advance all
the information he can ; we will at once start investigating the
market conditions and advise him of same.
We sell to family consumers throughout the Islands for
CASH, money with order, and many acknowledge that they are
saving money every month. We want the farmers' family trade
and will sell their products for CASH also, so as to furnish Un
