CUBA AND THE TARIFF BILL
, ; On tho two subjects that are wor
rying local holders of sugar stocks
f-i the tariff possibilities and the Cuban
situation tho Louisiana Planter juBt
, to hand has somo expressions of ex-
. pert opinion. It dec'ares that inter
vention In Cuba, If It led to annexa
tion of that island, would be death
to the -Louisiana sugar industry, a
proposition which is regarded as ap
plying here, while its other proposi
tion, thattfree sugar would as quick
ly kill tho industry, meets the views
of leading local sugar men that only
ono or two Hawaiian plantations
could survive under free sugar.
The Planter's Washington corres
pondent tells of deals being attempt
ed which causo somo alarm to tho
sugar interests, in tho following lan
guage: "Some of the members of tho sen
ato who aro opposed to tho Lodge
substitute base their action on the
theory that they would prefer to ac
I cept.a slight reduction, or even tho
Bristow amendment, at this time, If
by so doing the sugar question could
be settled at this session, rather than
to fight a reduction now and havo
another fight at the next session. Tn
theory this sounds somewhat plausi
ble, but' thero Is no assurance that
by acceding to a slight reduction at
present, the tariff reductionists would
not bo clamoring for anothcr cut In
tho not distant future. To comprom
ise now, say tho friends of tho Lodgo
bill, when by a stand-pat program
no sugar legislation can go through
would bo used as a basis for a sub
stantial reduction in tho future when
thero was a possibility of now sugar
legislation really being enacted. Es
pecially would this apply If tho Dcm.
.ocrats should succeed to full power
at tho coming elections. Tho claim
would bo made, and with somo force
to the argument, that If tho friends
of sugar agreed to a reduction, they,
.thereby, admitted that tho tariff was
too high, and that they could stand
an oven greater reduction than they
were willing voluntarily to admit.
Tho wholo situation revolves Itself
Into a game of politics and each side
, Is playing for points for tho futuro.
Ft "Thero Is one phaso of tho ques
tion, however, which is causing con
siderable worry to the friends of the
. 'ion :
sugar industry, namely, the efforts
of certain Democratic senators to get
their party to agree to vote for the
house free sugar uill. Should they
succeed in this, it will, of course,
commit tho Democratic party to the
policy of placing sugar on the free
list, in which event the home sugar
Industry would be wiped out of ex
istence at the first opportunity if that
party should elect a president and se
cure control of both houses of con
gress next fall. It Is believed, how
ever, that Senator Williams, who is
leading tho Democrats in tho senate
on the sugar light, will not consent
to such a proposition.
"In any event, it seems certain that
whatever measure Is passed in tho
senate, it will be either a Democratic
or a straight Republican bill, and that
the Insurgents will not be a factor
of Importanco ono way or tho other,
as they havo anticipated they would
As to Cuba, tho Louisiana paper
"Tho reported outbreaks among tho
negroes in the Island of Cuba is
thought by somo jingo patriots to In
dicate tho early annexation of Cuba
to the United States through a third
intervention, tho other, two Interven
tions having failed to Impress them
selves sufficiently upon tho Cuban
minds to repress tho outbreaks now
reported thero. Wo believe that It
would bo very unfortunate for the
United States to construo itself as In
any manner compelled to tako over
tho Cuban government, and so far as
Louisiana is concorned, the annexa
tion of Cuba would bo death to tho
Louisiana sugar Industry. Wo aro
reminded of tho old story of tho boys
stoning tho frogs in tho pond 'for
fun,' and tho remonstrance of tho
frogs that whllo It might bo fun for
the boys, it was death to them. So
we say that whllo It may bo fun or
adventure for tho negroes of Cuba to
overthrow their government, It would
bo death to tho Louisiana sugar plan
tors, who certainly can't compete on
oven terms with Cuba."
