that ho was not blind to tho opporunl
tics thus offered, but, on tho contrary,
had visited he islands with tho par
pone of securing options on sugar
lands, should the conditions appear as
favorablo as be believed them to bo.
Ho bad secured such options, he stat
ed, conditional, largely, on tho action
of Congress on the I'blllpplno freo
trade bill. "The cost of producing su
gar In tho Islands," he added, "was
given to mo by tho men wuo raiso su

freo trade," tho Inference being that
tho witnesses who had appeared bo-
fore tho Taft party whllo In tho IsV

sire to secure freo trado with this
country than by a disposition to pro
sont tho exact facts. Mr. Hathaway

from the centers of civilisation, where
the families are held for the dobts of
their parents. The superintendent of
