Loudon, February 26. A des
patch to the "Daily Mail" front
Rome says that a group of English,
Italian nud Brazilian capitalists nrc
forming n trust to monopolize the
coffee trade of Brazil. It is stated
that the syndicate is supported by
the Brazilian Government. It is
! expected that prices will be raised
30 per cent.
In view of this threatening con
tingency, would it not be well for
us to figure up what we haVe lost
and what Brazil and its coffee plan
ters have gained by our putting
Brazilian coffee on the free list
thirty years ago and keeping it
there? In 1902 our total imports
from Brrfzil were $71,580,086, of
which $47,004,453 was for 794,628,-
! 963 pounds of free coffee. Prior to
1870 our duty on coffee was five
cents a pound. It was then re
duced to three cents a pound, and
finally abolished altogether in 1872.
Have our people got cheaper
coffee from Brazil since the duty
was nlolishcd ? Let us see. Sena
tor Dietrich of Nebraska said in the
Senate on Februray 3, 1903 (C011
gcssioual Record, page 228); "In
1871 we paid Brazil 9 2-5 cents per
pound for 257,472,700 pounds of
cottee collected three cents per
pound duty, thereby turning $7,
1 724,181 into our Treasury making
i the coffee cost our importers 1225
I cents per pound, duty paid.
In 1872 (the year we abolished
the duty) we paid Brazil 15 2-3
cents, an increase of more than
double the duty taken off; in 1873,
14 9-10 cents; in 1874, 19 cents,
and in 1875, 15 2-10 per pound,
showing that putting coffee on the
free list did not decrease the cost of
coffee to the American consumer,
but that coffee constantly advanced
in price. Immediately after we
took the duty off of coffee Brazil
put on export and other taxes; ap
proximating (and more) the duties
we had been collecting, thus trans
ferring our revenue of coffee from
our Treasury to the Brazilian Trea
sury, and our people were not' help
ed one iota. In passing we may
note that this result on coffee from
Brazil is only one of the many ex
amples of "all loss and no gain" of
the Democratic programme of free
trade. The old cry of ' 'a free break
fast table" is a delusion and a snare.
Since 1872 our Treasury has lost
in duties on Brazilian coffee along
at three cents per pound the gigan
tic sum of $353,522,751 about the
cost to us of the Spanish-American
war), aud the Brazilian Tfeasury
has gained just that much at our

Is it not time to stop this national
loss and grow our own coffee? We
are doing it in Porto Rico, but not
yet to an extent anywhere near our
consumption, and unfortunately so
far, our people are not calling fot
Porto Ricnn coffee to anywhere
near the quantity the island is al
ready producing. Let it call for
more of it. Porto Rico is a mem
ber of our family, and should re
ceive n full share of the family
patronage. Increased demands
will cause increased aud better pro
duction and help1 to build up the
island and American fortunes in
stead of building up Brazil and
Brazilian fortunes. Why not restore
thcthree-cents-a pound duty against
all but our own possessions, and
our ward, Cuba, and thus encour
age coffee growing in those posses
sions, particularly the Philippines?
The soil there is rich and suitable

building up? Let us grow our own

Sir George Birdwood, who has
made the industrial art of India his
life study, was born in India in the
district of Belgaum, seventy years
ago, and for the first seven years of
his life was brought up in that
country. In his speech which is
printed in full in the Indian Maga
zine for January in reply to a pre
seutative made to him on his birth
day by a number of old friends, he
drew a graphic picture of his early
life. He said:
"Imagine for a moment what it
is for an Englishman to be born in
India, and to receive in a country
so graphic in its landscape, aud its
daily life, his earliest education.
This begins, as at home, at his
mother's knees; but at the time
what really awakens your attention
to the surrounding world, and your
self-consciousness, and very much
through your childish greediness,
is the sight of the wonderful 'all
a-growing, all a-blowing' vegetable
confectionery amid which you grad
ually discover yourself as its sur
reptitious possessor. There is the
'plantane' under which Eve is said
to have first discovered herself to
Adam. It is a gigantic sort of Iris,
with a palm-like head of long,
broad fronds, casting a green
shadow, cooler than that prevading
the veranda from which you caught
your first sight of the amazing
cluster a weight for a man of
golden fruit hanging from it, each
fruit (the 'long apple' and 'Adam's
apple' of the 'old writers') a meal
for a child; seedless, soft as butter,
fragrant as fresh gathered costus,
and of the most delectable uncloying
sweetness. Withal perfectly di
gestible. Close by are the natura
lized West Indian .custard apples,'
wide-branched little trees, hungall
over will mottled green, embossed
fruit, as with large pots of mailed
malachite, close packed with a rich
fleshy, vanillia-flavored pulp, which
might well be called, not 'the milk'
for it is meat and drink in one
but the 'Devonshire cream' of Para
dise! Behind these are some natur
alized Brazilian 'papaw,' passion
flowers, of one straight stem, seven
to nine feet high, with broadly dig
itated leaves gathered at the top
after the manner of palms, shading
the gourd-lift fruit nestled below
them. You can cut into the gourds
as easily as into cream cheeses, aud
they are filled with a soft yellowish
pulp, which tastes like apple pie
slightly flavored with quince.
Farther away nre the naturalized
Mexican 'gauvas;' myrtle-blooms,
bearing apple and pear-shaped
berries' of a jujubepaste-like con
sistence, and of the most luscious,
ethereal fragrance aud- flavor; and
altogether most toothsome. My
hankering memory of these living
sponge cakes and custards and jams
and jellies is as was that of the
Israelii es after the flesh pqts of
