Porto Rico Left to ConreHH fc
Washington, Aug. 2$. It Is be
lieved In high quarters here that
many of the Important questions
relating to Porto Rico will be left
for Congress to deal with Instead of
being settled by executive action.
One of these relates to the free
exchange of commodities between
Porto Rico and this country. This
It Is said, was considered during the
recent conference at Lake Cham
plain, but the Impression Is growing
among those usually well Informed
that favorable consideration was
not riven to the proposed plan.
Another plan for relieving Porto C
Rico was to permit her tobacco to g
enter Cuba free of duty. This R
& would give an easy market to A
& Porto Rlcan tobacco but the
k has been raised that It would
C press Cuban tobacco. As between
g serving the Porto Rlcans and Injur
S Ing the Cubans In this respect much
N perplexity nas arisen.
