PORTO RICO NO PRECEDENT.1
Washington, April 18. What 1'orto
Is In reality today wo know
what It may becomo ten or twenty
yccra from now, under tho Influence ot
American capital and enterprise, wo
can only conjecture. Cotton may bo
grown there, and cotton manufacturing
might becomo a largo Industry. With
cheap Island labor, tho product of our
own Northern and Southern mills could
thus bo undersold. Would it lie right
to oxposo tho agricultural and Indus
trial interests of tho United States to
such competition? If tho prluclplo of
a tariff bo not now maintained, it
might bo difficult, If not impossible, to
Imposo ono hereafter, It It Bhould thus
becomo necessary. Then tho llcpubll
can party would bo blamed, and Justly
'so, for its neglect to protect tho inter
ests of American citizens on tho Main
land, and for its lack ot forethought.
It may bo that tho sugar yield thcro
may grow to Buch an extent na to cur
tail tho avallablo market area for our
growing beet Industry. Tho samo may
bo true of tobacco, ot vegetables, nf
oranges, of rlco, of hides, of hemp, and
other products. It Is not claimed that
1 thcro Is danger today. Dut that there
Is strong probability ot danger to
American industries through the estab
lishment ot trco trado relations with
Porto Illco, ns a precedent for our pou
cy in dealing with all our outlying
possessions, no ono can deny, after
having given tho subject careful Inves
tigation. What applies to Porto Hico
might bo held to apply equally to oth
er possessions, and who can say what
may develop In that much larger and
equally fertile area in tho East, with
Its abundance of cheap labor.
This Is what we must guard against.
Without a precedent, and tho estab
lished right to Imposo a tariff upon
any of tho products of our lBland pos
sessions, tho United States may in
years to como feel tho effect of such
lack of legislation to a very serious de
gree. By tho adoption ot this lobulation,
futuro protection will bo posslblo to
American interests In caso it bo need
ed against that source, or against tho
Philippines, or against tho Danish
Wcstlndlcs, should wo acquire them, or
any outlying possessions.
An ounce of prevention Is worth a
pound of cure, and it is best not to
fir a precedent that will abolish a
right which maintains our national
policy. Moreover, tho Republican
party will not bo committed to tho
policy of free trado as Is so earnestly
desired by the Democrats.

It happened that the next day was the
day on which the servant girl had her
day ofT, ami the lady of the house mnilc
up her mind that she would surprise
her friend by getting up a nice lunch
prepared by herself, for she had the
reputation when they were young la
dles of not being able to cook, while
her friend had the reputation or being
nn excellent cook.
The day her friend was expected the
lady weut to market and laid In it sup
ply or nil the good things which go to
make up n Hue lunch. She went home
nnd lighted the lire nnd prepared for
the cooking. .lust then she discovered
that she had forgotten to get some
fruit and told her young daughter to
tell her friend when the latter came
that she would bo back In a few mo
ments. She went to the store nnd.
meeting some of her friends, staid quite
awhile, forgetting how time was Hying.
In the meantime the friend arrived,
atid. being told that her hostess would
soon be home, she went Into the kitch
en, nnd. Feeing the good things there,
she went to woik and cooked nnd pre
pared tho lunch. When the lady of the
house arrived home, she was astonish

"Well, lu the lirst place, because wo
look upon men who come here as gen

don't remember Just how the account
In question wns opened, but usually It
Is done In lids way: Some tiny, after u
man receives his check, he scrawls his
name across Its face nnd tells the wait

'hung up.' nnd nn account Is opened
with the man.
"In most Instances the man comes

however, the man Intends to work tho

the new account receives Its lirst nil

but never by any really large charge,

"When the account has grown so

many words he Is given to understand
that ensh would be preferred to an

the hint nnd makes a payment or asks
ror more time and tells us that he will
pay as he goes, and he remains a cus

but generally he leaves us and goes
to some other plnco and complains
about poor service here nnd In other
wnys'trlc to Injure our business be

remains open, and when It becomes
