AN EASY VICTORY.
The discovery made by Chairman
Gear that August Drelcr, tho Fusion
candidate of the Fourth District, Is not
eligible for the office for which he has
been named, confirms the steadfast
contention of tho Bulletin Hint the Re
publican party had everything to gain
and nothing to lose by placing a can
didate In the field for the special elec
tlon In what an Idiotic position would
tho paity have found Itself had It re
fused to place a candidate In the field
only to find, too late, that the opposi
tion ready with a candidate, had plac
ed a man In the field who was barred
out by a technicality.
Failure to bo equipped for the emer
gency whether It be an active canvaBS
for an empty honor or readiness to
profit by the shortsightedness of tfic
opposition would certainly liatre
fleeted no credit upon the Judgment
or the courage of the party leaders or
any faction of its rank and file As it
turns out tho Republicans have a clear
field, the victory Is already won and
should occasion arise for a special ses
sion of the Legislature tho party Is
assured good representation.
It is not (o be supposed that the
Home Ruler and Democratic fuslonlsts
will give up without a struggle. They
w 111 doubtless appeal to the courts to
have Mr. Drclcr's name placed on tho
ballot for the election Failing to ac
complish this they may as a matter of
principle marshal their forces to cast
their ballots for Mr. Drelcr to show
their political Btrcngth though thej
have nothing to gain from such a
course. Whatever they may do how
ever It is very plain from the reading
of the Organic Act that Tir. Drcler
cannot by any possibility be elected to
illl the vacancy in the representation
oi (he Fourth District. And though
the victory be an empty one for the
Republican party, the organization Is
nevertheless on record as being ready
for the fray under any and all clrcum
stances Party Integrity lias been pro
served from all standpoints and tho
shortsightedness of the opposition ex
emplified In such an amusing manner
that the Republicans gain all the pres-
tlgo they need as well as securing the
representative that Is wanted.
Nothing moro satisfactory could be
asked. To the opponents of the Re
publican party is handed over the
monopoly of worry.

CUBA'S SUGAR SITUATION.
Cuba's fate still hangs In tho bat
ance as far as aid to Its Biigar Industry
Is concerned. Those Republican Con
gressmen who have fought so well for
protection to the domestic sugar In
dustry had not been overcome when
the laBt mall left the coast. Then the
committee on Wajs and Means had
apparently abandoned the form of
special tariff reduction In favor ot a
plan for reciprocity which chairman
Payne had Introduced In the House,
The main feature of this bill Is that It
compels tho enactment by Cuba "of
Immigration and exclusion laws as ful
ly restrictive of immigration as tho
laws of the United States," a conccs
slon that free and Independent Cuba
should unhesitatingly refuse.
During tho Republican discussion
over the Cuban sugar question tho
point, was made that n bounty bo paid
to the American beet sugar manufac
turers In the shape of a rebato of the
Internal revenue tax on alcohol to an
amount approximating the loss tho
beet sugar men would Bufier through
a twenty per cent tariff reduction to
Cuba. One of the by-products of tho
sugar beet Is a low grade black molas
ses from which alcohol Is made. The
present Internal revenue tax on high
grade alcohol Is $2 07 a gallon, and tho
Idea Is to pay back a portion of that
tax to the beet sugar producers This
plan, however, would be opposed by
the producers of corn alcohol and Is
not likely to be very seriously consid
ered. Judging from an article that has
qulto recently appeared In a paper
published In Havana, the "Avlsldor
Commercial," it is a moot question
whether the Cubans themselves really
desire any aid for their Industry. That
Cuba can produce sugar moro
cheaply than any other country,
and she will find markets if tho
Government to be established
knows how to obtain liberty to
offer Cuba's market to the country
which gives the most In return. If
the United States makes less
than 50 per cent reduction In tho
tariff tho first thing tho new Gov
ernment should do Is to demand
the right to mako commercial
treaties wltK other nations.
This throws tho onus of proof moro
thoroughly upon the shoulders of the
Sugar Trust, and tho Administration,
to Bhovv why any direct aid" wliatevcr
should be given to this ono Cuban in
dustry when an independent willing
ness Is expressed for commercial lib
erty and reciprocity.
The Idea that a limit of 850 000 tons
bo placed upon tho quantity of Cuban
sugar to recclvo any tariff concession
setuiB to havo fallen to the ground
As our Washington correspondent
points out. It would clearly demoralize
tho market and defeat the object de
sired when receipts approached tin
limit" Tho most popnlar plan Is that
whli h would allow a rebate of twenty
per cent, for n term of three jcars
nut tiie beet people seem afraid to
comedo even this much lest tho Senate
increase tho amount of the rebate
Tho Senate undoubtedly Is moro favor-
ablo to some form of assistance for
the Cubans than Is the House, many
of whoso members seek re-election
this fall, and who would find It difficult
to explain to their constituents why
they abandoned tho protective tariff
Should the Piesldent. In case Con
gross refuses to nld tho Cubans, enter
Into a treaty for the annexation of
ilielr Island that would bo subject to
ratification by tho Senate alono and
would relievo tho members of tho low
er chamber from nny responsibility
But Hawaii, In such an event, would
havo to compete as a sugar producer
on even terms with Cuba, the ques
tions of labor, fn Ights, Insurance and
proximity to market being decidedly
ngalnst us In this connection It Is
well to remember that Cuba already
possesses storago facilities for as
much sugar as constitutes tho annual
crop of Hawaii, hence manipulation of
tho market would be easy, against our
Interests, by tho largo financial body
that Is said to control the bulk of the
product of the Cuban mills
