Brings Up Another Question on tbe
Citizens Want tbe Beneflls of American
Laws Appeal lo Attorney General
Griggs for Opinion.
Washington, June 22. Tho
question whether Porto Rico did
not beoomo an integral part of tho
United States and its oitizena en
titled to tho protection of its con
stitution and laws immediately
upon the exchange of tho ratifica
tion of tho treaty of poaco bo
tweon tho United (States and Spain
was submitted to Attorney Gon
oral Griggs today. Tho problem
was presented in a written com
munication by Luis Munoz Ri
vera, former Secretary of State in
the Porto Rioan Cabinet, who has
been in Washington for some
timo. While charged by his po
litical enemies with being oppos
ed to tho Atnaticau rogime Sanor
Rivera denies this, and has assur
ed the authorities here that the
Porto Rican people are absolutely
loyal to tho United States.
Speaking today, Seuor Rivera
said tho question on which tho
futuro of Porto Rico depended
was tho fros entranco of produots
into tho United States. Ho con
"It is life or death lo us. The
richness of our island is but a
mockery when wo caunnt dispose
of our products. Wo havo boen
told to wait for Congrojs to act,
but the time has como when we
must prepare for tho next crop,
and wo fear that with tho press of
business your new Ooogross is
suro to labor undor Porto Rico
may havo to wait uutil it will be
too late to roliovo the eoonomio
"I am convinced that rolief
could be afforded us without wait
inc for Congressional legislation
Tbe very moment the ratifications
of tbe treaty of peaoe between toe
United otatos and Spain woro ex
changed Porto Rico beoamo an in
tecral part of the Uuited States.
From that moniont no duties could
lawfully be loviod on goods ex
changed between Porto Rico and
the rest of the Union. I am sup.
ported in tbia viow not only by
the action of the administrative
officers of the Unitod State) wheu
California was oedod by Mexico,
but by decision of the Unttod
States Supreme Court sustaining
Senor Rivera quoted at length
from tho decision referred to,
which concerned tho status of
California after tho poaco treaty
with Mnxico, and said in odnclu
sion: "By the ratification of tho
treaty California becamo a pait of
too Unitod States. And as there is
nothing different stipulated in the
treaty with respect to commerce it
becamo instantly bound and privi
leged by the laws which Oongross
had passed to raise tho revunuo
from duties on imports and ton
nage." Honor Rivoraconoludod: "I have
submitted a stateraont of my posi
tion to tho Attorney General, and
I am certain that it will receive
careful consideration from the ad
ministration. Wo can be saved by
the stroko of the President's pen.
What wo ask for is logical and
just. Tho eyes of all Porto RioanB
are fixed expectantly on Washing
ton for a decision, whioh my
mean prospority or ruin."

Tbe Long Hissing Steamer Perthshire's
Into Sydney Harbor by tbe Steam; r
Tatune Second Officer's
Tho Perthshire which was mis
sing for ovor two months is nt last
safely lying in Sydnoy harbor.
Tho S. S. Aorangi brought the
story this morning of tho long de
layed vessel. .
The Perthshire was towed into
Sydney harbor by tho steamer
Taluno tho day beforo tho Aoran
gi left that port.
Socond ollicor Page's story in
brief is as follows:
"Wo left Sydnoy on tho 2Cth of
April with 1200 tons of frozou
moat and CODO tons of produco,
bound for the Bluff, Now Zealand.
Wo experienced stroiiK S. E. gales
trom tho day wo started until the
28th April, then tho weather
moderated. At G p. m. on thut
dajo tho tail-end shaft broke. The
ship was then about 391 miles S.
E. of S)dnoy, latitude 33 degrees
37 minutes J3,, and longitude 150
degrees 33 minutes E. All sail
wsb at once bent, and it was set
that night with tho hopo of sail
ing or drifting towards Sydney.
iue jail, however, proved useless.
Thore remained nothing for us
to do but to drift in tho hopo
that shortly somo vessel wouid
eight as and tako us in tow. Ou
April 30 the engineers came to the
conclusion that the break was too
far aft to allow them to connect
with tho coupling. Thoro com
mouoed on our part a series of
driftings. Wo rigged heavy
drags over the stern with as much
as 180 fathoms of line, but all to
no purpose. Wo could not alter
her course at all. On May 13 we
sighted the timber-laden schooner
Wnaogaroa from Now Zeuland.
The skipper came board, to toll
any steamers he mot. On May 22
thero oommoncod a series of galea
lasting a week. Tho ship tas in
splendid trim and behaved very
well. On the 25th May in tho
height of the gain we spoko to tho
barquo Northern Chief. By Sun
dBy 28 May we had traveled iu
all 930 miles in a straight lino.
Tbe course bad boen zigzag and
sometimes altogether baokwatds,
but tbo lattor was .not frequent.
During all this time rockets and
other distress signals woro sout
up whenever wo camo to within
30 miles of a steamers track, but it
was all of no use. Wo wore uow
out of tho renular track of all
steamers between New Zealand
and Australia, and wero drifting iu
a direction wmen would tako ns
into tho unpleasant vioinity
of tho South Sea islands and
thoir dangerous coral reefs
As a last resource it was de
cided to break away tho stem tnbe
and endeavor to couplo tho broken
shaft, On tho 11th of June, iiftor
14 days of hard work, which had
lasted right through tho 21 hours
tho flint fow turns of the propeller
wero token. Tho temporary struc
ture worked all right, and wo got
stoorage way on tho boat, aud it
was not a moment too soon. At
that timo wo were within 4G miles
of tho rook-bound coast of Nor
folk Island, aud wo wero driving
straight towards it at two or three
knots per hour. That day went
slowly ahoad with the ongines all
day, stopping thorn two or three
times to adjust tho couplings. At
3 a. m. on tho 13th Juno wn
sightod tho Btoaraor Taluno. Shu
stood by ns till daylight, when u
hawser was passed aboard and wo
prooeoded along towards Svduoy,
whoro we arrived on Mouday

from the cantor oil plantation of
Messrs Koelliog and Tuch who
broke ground just a year ago for
the cultivation of the castor bean
at a place to the left and noir the
foot of the Pali. ' "
For muny years the castor-bean

country roads, producing good

Not so with Mr. Eoelling who,
having made some rxperim.-ntB,
decided to launch forth into castor
beau planting on a large scale.
Ho routed nomo tbreo hnndrol
acres at the placo mentioned above,
msdo Mr. Tuch, his nephew, his
parlnor nod, clearing fifty acres,
planted his crulor beans obtaiued
