Reciprocity With Cuba.
Exporters are beginning to realize
that merchants and manufacturers in
the United States will benefit by reciprocity
with Cuba. The directors of
the Merchants' Association of New
York have adopted resolutions on the
subject which are being sent to commercial
organizations all over the
country, and to members of Congress.
After quoting from the President's
Message and from the reports of Sec-

Wood, Governor of Cuba, the

6,710,000 tons of beet sugars and giv
ing thereby the possibility of a surplus
of sugars in the world at the ter
mination of the coming campaign of
at least 1,500,000 tons a quantity of
sugar which is entirely beyond any
conceivable requirements for several
years to come, as to annual production,
compared with consumption.
The result of this increased - production
of beet sugar must necessarily be
shown a long time in unprecedented
low prices for sugar throughout the
world, and it will be a wonder if disaster
does not reach some producing
countries besides Cuba, Already, the
lowest price on record for beet sugars,
of 7s per cwL Is quoted in the European
market, which is a trifle below
the parity of 31 c. for 36 test
Our local markets have been

Current quotations are unchanged
but without transactions and

Condition of Refined.
Market for refined sugars has felt
the easier conditions sooner than the
raw sugar market, and a decline of
10c. per 100 lbs. on all grades was
made by all refiners excepting the A.
S. R. Co.. who reduced softs only.
At the close Messrs. Arbuckle Bros,
have made a further reduction of 5c
per 100 lbs., which is also met by other
refiners excepting A. S. R. Co. In
addition to the -usual rebate of 15c.
and discounts of 1 per cent and 1
per cent, Messrs. Arbuckle Bros, are
now giving a special rebate of 1 per
cent,, subject to cancellation at any
time, without notice to apply only to
those sugars which are withdrawn
meanwhile,' It is to be noted, however,
that this demoralization of the
refined market appears to be uncalled
for, in Tiew of the fact that no present
decline has occurred in raw sur
gars, and European decline la but a
will fast lead the island to absolute
bankruptcy and to all the suffering
that follows therefrom, and in view
of the moral obligations voluntarily
assumed by and resting upon the nation
to relieve those condition at the
earliest moment; be it
Resolved, That the directors of ths
Merchants Association respectfully,
but urgently, request Congress to give
immediate consideration to these conditions,
and to pass as speedily as
possible such legislation, in the way
of lowering the duties upon the Cuban
products coming to the United
States, as will insure a market for
those products, conditioned1, of course,
upon the establishment of reciprocal
arrangements in favor cf 'American
manufactured products which might
naturally seek a market in Cuba, but
which, owing to Cuba's present tariff
schedules and curtailed purchasing
power, are now debarred therefrom."
Commercial bodies throughout the
United States are invited to co-operate
in the purjrose set forth above,
by adopting similar resolutions and
transmitting them at once to their
respective Senator sand Representatives
in Congress, and all merchants.

and Representatives, requesting them
to support a measure for reciprocal
relations with Cuba. This Association
will be pleased to receive copies
of such resolutions as may be passed
by Chambers of Commerce, Boards of
Trade and other business organizations."
A dispatch from Washington states
that President Roosevelt has transmitted
to the Senate a petition signed
by Senor F. Gamba and other residents
of Cuba, urging commercial
reciprocity between that Island and
the United States. They say that
owing to the comparative cheapness?
of European goods the sale of American
products is decreasing in Cuba,

Is Still On.
HE advertiser's best friend is the medtam through
which he obtains ths biggest returns for his money.
One medium which to used by advertisers to a great
extent is tho. circular or booklet. The circular or
booklet Is always ineffective, unless It is verv handsome
handsome enough to attract the eye of the man to whom It
is sent, no matter how busy he may bo. A booklet handsome
enough to do this almost always cost; from three to
four cents apiece. There is the mailing to count In (two
cents a copy, of course); there is the trouble In getting a list
of names, and In addressing. Altogether the cost will figure
up to about seven cents a copy for a good booklet. Two
thousand circulation In a booklet is very large. Two thousand
circulation at seven cents Is $140. I propose to show
that you can invest 3140 in newspaper space and get returns
five fold of what you would get through a bookleL
In the first place, there is the cost. For 5140 you can get
a good-sized space in a newspaper of good circulation for
quite a long time. You know your newspaper rates; you can
figure it out to suit your own instance much better than l
can. So much for cost
Now for Effectiveness
You must tell your customers how much your goods are
going to cosL An advertisement without a price Is like moat
without salt it will do you no good. How can you put
prices in a booklet when you are doing a strictly retail business?
You have competitors; you have to change your
prices constantly to meet theirs, and to meet other exigencies.
The first change of a price will kill the effectiveness
of a booklet, and where are you? Your advertisement
In a newspaper may be changed as many times as you desire.
You are constantly up-to-date.
The Newspaper Is Effective
Any kind of a newspaper has more circulation than you
can obtain through a booklet for ?140. Newspapers reach
the heart of the home. Every one reads them, and they are
far more certain to obtain close attention than any printed
matter which you would send. If you sent printed matter
of your own accord to persons w!o do not know you, you
would be putting yourself face to face with them without a
guarantee. They have nothing to judge the quality of your
goods by, and they can only take what you say on our own
paper and in your own way. Anybody can say as much a3
When your matter appears In a newspaper of good circulation
and good standing, the newspaper is a guarantee for
what you say. Newspapers are always particular as to whom
their advertisers are. (I speak of good newspapers always.)
Your ads will gain a value besides their inherent one. They
will be vouched for, and this is not to be despised. You
have a certain fluctuating trade, which Is always valuable,
and which needs some sort of an introduction to your store.
This introduction the newspaper gives you.
Good Paper Adds Dignity
You are known by the company you keep, you know,
and if your ads appear in a paper which holds itself up before
the masses as a leader, you will be known as a patron
of what is good, and von will obtain trade from those whom
it Is worth trading with.
On all scores I consider newspaper advertising by far
the best. On the score of cheapness; on the score of being
able to constantly change your announcements; on the score
of direct and immediate returns; and on the score of being
introduced to people, to strangers, as a store which can afford
to announce its news to every one in a dignified and
straightforward manner, and this Is the manner which brings
trade that pays.

The above article, written by one of the beat-Informed
advertising men in the country, is in line with the business
policy advocated and maintained bj THE HONOLULU REPUBLICAN.
His description of a good newspaper and its
superior merits as an advertising medium is distinctly applicable
to an essentially reliable and dignified family paper of
large circulation, such as THE REPUBLICAN.
