In hia opinion Attorney General Me

The above dikpatch by Associated

overrules the interpretation which the
domestic beet and cane interests placed
oa the effect of the Underwood B 11 on
the Cuban reciprocity treaty;
- The Louisiana planters claimed a de
fect in the Underwood Bill, in that
while the Tariff Act of October 3, 1913,
repealed the proviso of the treaty tti;'n
lating that the twenty per cent redue
tion should be baced on the rates named
in the. Dingley Bill of JS97, the law
did' not repeal the congressional art
passed to give force and effect to the
reciprocity treaty. The sugar and to
taeeo intorcsts claimed that In their
hnste the conferee entirely forgot to
repeal the Enabling Act above referred
to. In support of this contention they
claimed that the decisioa of the United
State Supreme Court,1 rendered 'May

Statra vs. the American Sugar Refin

Issue. ' : ... .' "

It wss nl.'O diK-lared thnt after March

- Tho McReynolds decision overthrows
all of these contention and provides
that after March 1, 1014, Cuban augart

THESE JESTIOflS
Mr. Taxpayer and Mr. Automobile
Owner, What Do You Think of
.'. the Supervisors' Action?
' Why did the board of supervisors at
the'r meeting yesterday afternoon prae
tically "turn down" tha offar of W.
Spencer Bowen, manager of the Asso
elated Charities, to famish two hundred
unemployed men free of all cost to the
city to work in the road .department
until tbey could find employment else
where, the city to be placed under no
expense whatever except to provide ma
terisl and tool with which, tho men
conbl work ,. ' ,' : :t '
Why did one supervisor, bring up the
point that some of the men whose free
services were offered were not citizens
and could not be employed when, as
a matter of fact, the men would not be
employed by the eity, .but would give
their labor to tha city and. county I ;
Why did another supervisor bring up
the point that the men were not
skilled " in road work, when-a short
jsunt over th xity street and-county
roads would show pkaty of opportunity
where unskilled' labor cotild lie nsc-d? to
splendid advantage - ia- repairing1 and
making mors passable the, thorough
fares ; ,- , ;
Why' did another supervisor brin np
the point that the. eitf has not' shovels
and other ' eqirpmcnt for pick' and
hnval work more than that rennired
to equip the two hundred men now
employed a common laborers with such
tools!- , - - ' ! . -
Why did not that supervisor Inquire
if Jt' might not be possible to borrow
some pf the shovels and pick used by
the ' many pick and- shovel men em
ployed ia the water department just
pr'or jto the last election!
Why did one supervisor v auk Mr.
Bo we 5 why he did not put the men
to work on th plantations, after Mr.
Bowen had explained that there was
no work for the men on the planta
tions and that he was simply asking
that the men be given something to do
tor the eity at no cost to the super
visor! and U be paid entirely out of
a fund to .be raised by the Associated
Charities . '
Why should tho eity engineer last
night declare that there was no work
for men aside from those bow employed
and that there were no tool for them
and no money with which to buy tools!
Does the city engineer contend that
two hundred men, at absolutely no cos'
to the eity could not be vsed to good
advantage at the present time in the
road department!
Or is it just a li'ttle political play
the fear of the supervisors that hench
men and voters would ask them embar
rassing questions why other were pnt
to work (even though they worked for
nothing so far aa it cost the city and
county) and they were not allowed to
feed from the supervisors' trough!
Mr. Bowen made his offer in good
faith, and yet the supervisors turned
down hi plan to turn over to th road
department two hundred men to go out
on the treet and road and work with
picks and shovels to place the road
way in good condition. To aocept this
gift of labor f hey found It necessary to
defer the offer for "discussion" until
next Tuesday! Why! , V
Bowen 's pffer had o strings at-.
lam, nor waa a joicer nittua ia it.
He s mply went to the board, toM them
that he had a list of about two hundred
laborers who were out of work until
the openicg of th summer pineapple
season; that he desired to see the men
given work, and would turn them over
to the city, and the Associated Chari
ties would provide a fund whereby the
men would be paid at the rat of one
dollar per day. The. men ara all sturdy
immigrants, all inured to and capable
of hard labor, and would give ths road
dejwrtment a large, costless, working
unc it unie wuen tne supervisors
are crying retrenchment because 0f
lack of funds and ar placing th blame
for the poor condition of th streets
and roads to the financial condition of
the city and county.
Why! Is it politic being played so
kuimi uriure in election of next au
tumn! . .
