Rico is now ourn to fee simple.
Whether It is hh mo eh a part of
the United Stntea as Tennessee
or Kentucky Is for grave
lHwyerH"to decide. There
is considerable dlvrjfenoe of opin

Hiitttlie stntas it is to assume
wlielliVr that of State, a colony
or ii depeudencv to which in time
a free gove nment will lie grnnted.
The President pointed out the
need of speedy notion concerning
Porto Rico wheu he said iu bis
"It must bo borne in mind that
since the cession Porto.Elco.

her pmdiifls as when she was mi

markets in Spaimire closed toher
products except upon terms to
whirh the commerce of all iinuonn
is htihjeoteil. The islmid of Cuba,
which used to buy her cuttle and
tobacco without customs duties,
now imposes the same duties up
on these products as fioui auv
other country entering her ports.
She has, thernf. re, lost her free
intercourse wild Spain and (Julia
v it limit any compensating bene
fits in the market. II er coffee was
little known and not in use by our
people, in d therefore there was
no deiuanil here for this one of
her chief products, Our p aiu
duty is to nboli h all customs tur
It's liei ween the Unileil Stales and
Porto Ivico nnd uive her products

Porto Rico and the United
