Minneapolis, Dec 10 -A dispatch to
the Minneapolis Tlmis fioiu Washing
ton siib: The Pri-sldriil Is using foot
ball methods In advancing the Cuban
Interests In Congress, The Impact of
the Executive rush lino has been so
strong that Congress is yielding morn
ground. Gov ci nor Illlss uf Michigan
who came here mainly to look after ttu
jugar beet Interests of the people of blj
State, was informed by a member uf
'he Senate Commlttie on Cuban Ile
atlons that It probably would bo b'i
sr to seek a compromise rnther than
o insist upon tho high Dlngley rate
n Cuban sugars. He was advised that
irobably. the beet sugar men would
lot be materially nlfectc-1 if tho Cuban
iiigar was admitted at "0 per cent re
luctlou from the present tariff.
This wns an Intimation of a. decided
hangc of front on the part of the
cadcrs In Congress, The suggestion of
iie Republican Senator to tho Michi
gan Governor may bo ".ccepled aa re
'lectlng the majority of sentiment on
ihe Cuban Relations Commltlco, litnl
indicating what Is going on la the
minds or the small group ot the Senate
which docs things. This Is tho first
dent the President has made on the
Senate. Unquestionably (he early dis
position or Ihu Republican lcadors was
to permit the "hnudnmlden ot pros
perity" lay no violent hands on Cudo.
Tho cry was to leave well enough
Washington. Dec. 10. Tho beet su
gar men nt their annual meeting to
day discussed the question of reclproe.
Ity with Cuba nnd general matters con
cerning the tnrlff, nnd arrived at tbc
conclusion thnt a general campaign of
education would have to be entered
upon to show Congress that tho tariff
on beet sugar must not be reduced.
Henry T. Oxnard of California was
elected president of tho HSioclntlon, W
L. Churchill or Michigan, vim presi
dent, nnd Julius Strogh or Michigan,
The fact that tho Wn)R nnd Means
Committee In the House today re
ported a bill Imposing tho Dlngley
tariff on goods from the Philippines
encourages tho beet sugar men, ns
they argue that If tho Philippines,
which nre domestic territory, cannot
get n tariff reduction, Cuba cannot.
