UNFORTUNATE DELAYS CAUSE
HAVANA, Febraary 9 When aa
amicable agreeraeat aa to tba price to,
be paid for X'uba'a sugar crop af tha
current season was 'reached, after pro
longed negotiations, o4 the cent met
providing for the disposal of 2,500,004
loag ton of tbo crop to the Interna,
tional Sugar Committee, acting for tha
I'nited Htates and the Allies, 'was
filially closed, the. jiatt lenient 'waa wel
comed with relief by thoxe elements in
Cuba who were concerned for the main
tenance unimpaired of faelinga of real
confidence and friendship toward the
I'nited Htates on the part of tbe Cuban
people. It was felt that tbe terms
agreed upon were, on the whole, fairly
considerate of Cuba 'a intereate and
that the outcome in general waa dis
tinctly calculated to atraagthaa tjie
moral position of the United - State
aud to discredit the iaSucnoea which
were working to atir up Uiatruat aod
ill feeling among the more impreaaion
able part of tbe Cubuu pojiulation.
It is unfortunate, therefore, that re
cent developments in connection with
the sugar agreement have been aurb aa
to undo, in a degree, the good impres
sion this made, aud that a spirit of
doubt aud unrest is again beginning to
be manifest, especially among tboae
whose mturesiH are closely bound up
with the sugar industry.
Tu,t this ia tk ran is due to two
inufes, the slowness in taking delivery
j of the Culm n crop at a time when
I great need of it exists in the United
; Ktntex and in Kurope, an. I the failure
prompt Iv to I'omplc'e the arrange
ments I .r the loan of $tf)0,0O0fUOJ)
proiiiise.l the Cuban producers to, a
si"t them in financing their crop dur
ing the period to the end of Novem
ber, I !M H. covered by the contract.
According tu the terms of tbe agree
ment by which the sale waa made, de-
liverv of not less than two percent of
the Lnunoruon of two thirds of the
whole sol. I on account of the Lai ted
Htates was to be taken in Uecember,
and the balance in approximately eiu,ul
montlilv shipineiits from January to
November, inclusive, while of the "00,-,
Odd tons bought on account of the Brit
ish Koyal ( onimisKion on Hugar Supjily
for sliipinent to Kurope, delivery of
:io,immi ,-,(i,ii(Mi tons was to be taken,
not later than 'January 15, 50,000 tone
not later than .laiuuuy .11, aud the
l.uUince thereafter at the rate ef 80,.
000 to 1(111,(1(1(1 tons monthly.
The I'nited States has lived p to
its part of this agreement, having tok
en . loin cry of the, fyJ amount of ap
pioiiiiiiatolv IM.OOl) tows thus provided
for t February 1. At the same time

fallen fur below those of correspAUiiV
iug dates in previous years, while, the
Koyal Commission, ttt the beat tabu
lation, has failed to rouie auywhere
near taking its proportion, ahipsient
to Kurope having amounted to only
I,tli7 long toas.

Had it beea maJe to provide that
sale by a producer to any other party
at a price less than that fixed by the
contract would, automatically establish
thia lower priee for ajl suggra yet te
be delivered, this partieuhir dangea
would have bean avoided ; but at The
saoie time arrangements would , then
have bad to be, perfected for financing
those producers whose need of funds
was imperative and who must obtain
them or suffer real distress.
Fortunately, there appears to be rea
son to believe that the authorities at
Washington will have the beofft of
good advice, in tb present situation
from Mr. Morgan, the , special xepre
sentative of tbe United States here,
who has shown by his conduct sinie his
appojutnieat that he. understands the
