ply to a question as to the effect of this , flu"s "" " '""",, ' "" ' '
Lm .-- .........i i.i n.i ii.l truth of the claim that the falluie to
extend reciprocity ptomptly would re
I failure upon Industrial, social and poll
I tlcnl conditions In the Island, Geu
Wood said recently:
I "In the first place, there will be no
niack Friday' In Cuba. By that I mean
! there will be no general and sudden
I financial collapse. This Ib because tlm
Cuban banking firms nnd commercial
houses which hold the bulk of the mort
gages upon the plantations arc solvent, I
and arc nblo to carry for a considerable
period tho credits they hnvo extended.!
i The planters themselves are barely nblo
,to pay the Interest on theso loans. Many
of these loans wero increased last year,
because It was necessary to borrow
more money to pay for the machinery
and labor required for the larger acre
age planted In cane, which accounts for
the large crop of sugar this year.
"The real sufferers will bo the own
ers of larsc plantations, nnd the great
masa of the laborers whom they have
employed. The first result of low
prices of sugar, due to the maintenance
of the present customs duties on Impor-'
tations of the United States, will be no
new planting of sugar next year. As
suming that cano will continue to bo
productive for an ncrnKo of five years,
this would result In only n slow and
gradual reduction of the total acreage.
Ileduced acreage means, of course, a
smaller crop. It will mean also lesi
employment for labor. Tint will mean
n progressive decrease In the amount of
money expended for labor, a decrease
In purchasing power, a lessening ot
Importations and the effect of that will
bo a falling off In customs receipts.
"Thus It becomes apparent thnt tho
denial of reciprocity to Cuba Is like n
two-edged sword It will cut both
ways, striking both the Insular Gov
ernment thtough a decrease In Its rev
enues, and tho humblest peasant
through a decrease of earning capacity.
Condition1) of disorder In Cuba always
depend upon tho number of unemploy.
ed among tho mass of Its population.
1 At this very time large numbers of la
borers ought to be busy under normal
Industrial conditions, breaking giound
for an Increase of tho acreage to Iw
planted In cane. Instead of that. It Is
ptobable that the acreage will be de
creased perhaps 20 per cent below that
of this year.
"Advices that I have received from
Cuba recently show a disposition
among Intelligent planters to praise
tho United States for the splendidly
restored condition in which they left
the Island. Hut these advices also say
In effect that we have left tho Island to
Its ruin. There will now be u pi ogres
slvo Increase In the numbn: of the Idle
nnd unemployed. For example, ona
planter writes to me thnt he has had
500 laborers steadily at work. He now
can give employment only to fifty. II
rcportb thut the other 450 have either
begun to steal or ate getting ready to
steal In order to keep body nnd soul
together. Ills testimony Is dptillcated
by many others that conditions will
lead Inevitably to a gradual Increase In
lawlessness and petty crimes and even
tually to the paralysis of business and
tho shipment out of the Island of a
great deal of capital. In short, theie
will bo a steady downward progresj
toward tho conditions that prevailed In
suit In bloodshed and destruction ot
property. It Is thought, however, that
these on tin oaks will be only local an J
spasmodic. Advocates of reciprocity
believe that during tho coming Con
gressional campaign appeals will be
made to public opinion of the I'nlteu
States, that will have such an effect
as to secure next winter, either through
legislation or trenty, a far greater re
duction of duties upon Cuban Imports
than ho Inadequate relief or 20 per
cent hitherto proposed. In this pros
pect, the friends of Cuba are nndlng
some consolation for the delay, but not
the ultimate defeat of reciprocity.
This view Is in accordance with that
of Chairman Babcock, of the Republi
can Congressional Committee, who In
confident that the Democrats will gain
no advantage becuuso of the temporary
failure of reciprocity. It Is expected
that the President will make this topic
piomlnent In the address he will de
