Cuba and the Sugar Tariff
In a recent issue of the New York Join mil of Commerce tho Cuban
nilnlslur at Washington, Dr Pablo Desvernlne, is quoted as delivering
nu ai)ircs before the Hoard of Trade in Havana recently ill which
he pii'siyitccl a cheerful view of the ellect of this now United States
tarilf on tho sugar Industry of Cuba, which was, sa)s tho Louisiana
I'Tinter iu t oi cut, hi striking contrast vvitli somo of tho lugubrious
piedictitnis when at Hon on it wits ponding. 'Iho doctor stated that
he believes that when sugar goes on the free litt in 11)111 the Cuban
manufacturers will have to improve their methods mid reduce their
t lists, lint he believes the) will have an advantage over all other
ountrios in the world insofar as sending Biigur to the United States
is corn trued, nml ho believes that their sales to the United States will
largtdy nnroase on attoiiut of the low tost of transportation com.
paied with that from Java, Kurope and South America.
Iln expresses his, views also iu regard to tho American
Industry, mid he believes that boot sugars will hold their ground in
the interior of tho touiitr) mid especially in the mountain states
where, the tost of railrunl transportation Irom the seuco.ist will become,
a matter uf momniit, The dot tor further notes the substantial
udvdiilngo gained at onto iu discarding the Dutch standard of color,
a It'will admit sugars of high sacihurliio quality without having
them oiiio through the refiners' hands. Ile advocates organization
among thy Cuban producers iu some manner that tun bo miulii to
result in holding their prodiu t tn meet Iho market requirements,
that the siigm will mil h'o to be delivered In largo quantities under
low prim ut thu linrtest season
lu this respett tho ilntlor's views are in exat t uirord with those
that we hive expressed iu this Journal ri'poatedly, Another point
that Dot lor Desvernlne refers to Is iiIko one which we have been
itaruesl advonites mid that Is his urging tlm planters to develop some
s)slem of ton I nuts for future dellveiy, with u view of iiiuiiitiilulrig
the world's purit) nf values iu thu Cuban market. We tliuil 'hut
this is u mutter ul supreme iiiipnrtiiuce. The sugar planters nf ,uiis
