1 "The first measure to this end
, was n bill proposing a reciprocity
I treaty with Cuba. It was passed
, by the House, and was presented
I to the Senate, but I could not sup
I port it, as it was evidently drawn in
the sole interest of the Cuban sugar
producer and American refiner, and
gave too much to Cuba without in
juring compensating returns to our
' own people. I therefore formed an
alliance, so to speak, with eighteen
other Republican Senators, that we
would amend the bill or prevent its

was based on the fact that the bill

if nothing else was ever done, is the

the duty on which was to be re
duced by a given percentage, viz:
sugar. In the case of all other
products of either country the ex
act amount of reduction in duty
was to be left to the future determi
nation of the commission which the
bill authorized the President to ap
point for the negotiation of a treaty.
The only provision as to the amount
of the reduction was that it should
be 'at least 20 pei cent ad valorem.'
Thus, all that we knew was that
there should be not less than a 20
per cent reduction. But, as there
was left open a chance for a 100 per
cent reduction, and we did not
know where it might fall, if author
ized, or how the balance of benefits
1 would stand after the treaty was
formulated, we felt that there was
! not sufficient guarantee that our
1 own interests would be adequately
1 "We succeeded in preventing ac
I tiou 011 this bill, and it was at the
I same time understood that an ab
sence of factious opposition to a
I treaty which faiily covered all
t branches of trade, and was not dis
1 advantageous to any American in
terests, would result in having the
so-called reciprocity treaties with
France, Jamaica and the Barbadoes
kept in committee until the time
I limit under the Dingley tariff bill
I had expired. In the defeat of
these treaties California was espe
cially interested, for it would be
1 disastrously affected by a reduction
, in duty on French wines, dried
, fruits, preserves, oil, etc., while a
I reduction in the duty on Jamaica
and Uarbadoes citrus fruits would
practically drive California oranges
out of the Eastern market, for these
West India islands are extensive
exporters of lemons and oranges,
the imports therefrom to the United
States being about $1,000,000 a
year. A material reduction in the
duties thereon would readily treble
the amount of the imports, as was
the case when the Wilson-Gorman
1 tariff took effect. "
uach the chief of the anti-mosquito
campaign says that Superintendent
of Public Works Holloway has

Tin cans are being gathered reg
ularly and with good results every
where. Mr. Larnnch says he finds
an increasing readiness among the
people to cooperate with the com
mittee, and he has been very suc
cessful in getting people to drain or
fill up ponds and holes where other
wise mosquitoes would breed.
Already work is going on and
will continue to go as long as any
effort in the direction is made,
which would cost the committee
$1,500 a month if it had to do it,
but which is being done either by
departments of the government or
by private individuals.

It is enough to blister one's hands
just to contemplate the job that
confronted the men who swept the
floor of the inamoth Palace of Agri

the contractors finished their work
recently all that remained to be
done was to sweep the floor. It
never dawned on anyone how great
the task was. Caldwell and Drake,
the contractors, ordered a dozen
brooms and set 12 men to work.
When night came their inroads on j
