a meeting of Michigan beet sugar
men in Senator Burrow's room at
the Capitol today. The name of j
Henry T. Oxnard was mentioned, 1
interlar ed with curses both loud
and deep. He is credited with
"throwing" the beet sugar in
terests in favor of Cuban reciprocity,
through resolutions adopted last
night, wherein the Beet Sugar As-'
sociation withdrew its opposition to
'he treaty. The Michigan men re- j
lewed their pledge to fight the
reaty to the bitter end, but they !
onfessed that they did not know ,
exactly what to do. Democratic
Senators, especially Southerners,
are openly opposed to the treaty.
The cane sugar states are up in
arms now and the tobacco interests
are following suit. That there will
be active, if not successful, opposi
Oxnard was asked today what
was the cause of withdrawing his
opposition to the treaty. He gave
his written reply: "While we
thought for reasons of police it was
wise not to further oppose" the
wishes of the Administration in re
gard to Cuba, we want it distinctly
uudprstood that we do not approve
of the principle of reciprocity in any
sense of the term and would like

honor of guarding the gate to the
Forbidden City," said Chaffee,
"and within the walls was the
greatest treasure in the Chinese

its volume that it took a hundred

I even had a map of the Forbidden

where the treasure was concealed
plainly marked on it, and at a
