PORTO RICO for obvious leasons produces tobacco of vary
ing degrees of excellence. The bad impression caused
originally by careless cultivation and manufacture of the
tobacco, due to inexperience, has now been dispelled, and those
smokers who desire a cigar with more aroma than the flat-tasting
domes'ic cigar unmixed wi h Havana, and still lacking the
overpowering heaviness of the latter, at a reasonable price, find
their choice in the Porto Rican cigars. For this reason it is
.smoked in offices during business hours with every sense of
satisfaction by many in whose estimation Cuban cigars hold
first place for quality, and that portion of the general public
which is frugal on this item of expenditure finds it a good substi
tute for high-priced Havanas. Albert A. Void in New York Sun

, Inasmuch as the tat iff has been
the builder of a great industrial1
factor for mainland industries, the
same would apply to her tropical
domains. At the present day no
tat iff on coffee exists, the same
. - - -
1 having been removed in the vcar
. All Kutopean countries, without
exception, have import duties on
'coffee, whilst we admit this pro
duct duty free to our maikets,
I Hrazil and other coffee-growing
countries levy export duties on
'coffee, which tax goes into the
I treasuries of these countries, or, in
i other words, the people of the
' United States are contributing to
j their coffer without getting ample
compensation in leuirn.
The growth and the welfare of
the American territories ought to
be opsonic concern and importance
to tne nation we are linked to.
This great development should be
made possible under the American
flag, viving the opportunities in
this line of agriculture to American
citizens and American enterprise.
Under a protective policy, the
territories aforesaid mentioned can
in years to come supply the main
land with this product Hy so
doing we shall be benefited in many
ways. Firstly, we will add by a
tariff many millions to our own
Treasury that is now flowing into
foreign treasuries. Secondly, we
shall l)'c creating a new and vigor
ous development under our own
flag, a development that cannot
harm or conflict with any similnr
interest on the mainland, where the
product does not grow. Thirdly,
with increased industrial growth
follows increased trade and shipping
under our own flag. Increased
over-sea trade means a better and
stronger navy to safeguard our in
terests, and the extra millions we
are deriving from a coffee revenue
will furnish funds to equip and
add to our navy.
Only beneficent and good results
can come from it. This tariff is of
such momentous importance to our
future growth and needs in many
ways that both political parties
should support it unhesitatingly, as
it should be tile broad policy of the
United States to make her tropical
possessions valuable and prosperous
adjuncts of the great American
commonwealth, for as such they
will he a growing and potent factor
in her commerce.
It is one of the great industries
we can have for the matter of tariff
protection, and may we plead that
an altruistic regard for their futuie
be forthcoming at the next session
of Congress, irregard to party
politics. I am, sir,

According to the New York
Commerial, the sugar planters in
the island of Cuba are met with
the same labor difficulties as Ha
waiian planters have to contend
with, namely, thescaiceiy of field
laborers. A recent dispatch from-
iiavaua is as ioiiows:
At the rccptest of President
Palma, a committee of the Agrarian 1
League visited him today to ex-1
press the league s opinion on the
need of obtaining immigrants to
j Cuba, in view of a probable large
sugar crop. Th.e committee stated
i that tne past crop amounted to 7,
1628,144 sacks or 1,089,735 tons.
About 100,000 tons of sugar cane
l was left uncut owing to a lack of
I wot kers.
It is estimated that the coniimr
crop will be 8,000,000 sacks, and it
will require 35,000 additional men
to reap the increased 5,000 cabal
lerias (166,667 acres). It is esti
mated that seven men are required
to each caballeria.
The Senate is discussing a bill
appropriating $600,000 to be 'ex
pended in bringing in immigrants
from Europe and the Canary Is
lands, the details to be left to Pre
sident Palma. The Radicals favor
me imiuigration oi tanuiies in order 1
to increase the population. There
is some opposition to bringing in an
alien working class, it being claim-,
ml that they will lower wages.
