dent of San Domingo, an annual bribe
of f 50, 001) for life if lie would declare
the reciprocity treaty with the United
"It is true,' said the Dominican con
sul here, "that the countries here men
tioned have made a demand in San Do

a clause to be found in former treaties
each is entitled to receive ull the favors
from San Domingo that are or may be
extended to the most favored nation.
"That lieing the case, San Domingo
was naturally alarmed. The attitude
of Germany was especially dangerous,
as our tobacco trade is with Hamburg,
where we were threatened with n duty
that would have lieen fatal to our busi

not line so much. Still, if we should
be compelled to accede to the demand
of the tripartite we would have to send
