The Sugar Men Don't Want
Reciprocity, But the
Rice Men Favor It.
New Orleans, November 15.
The sugar and rice interests of
Louisiana and Texas have clash
ed over the question of reciproc
ity with Cuba. The sugar pro
ducers are bitterly opposed to
any treaty with the new Cuban
republic which will admit sugar
imported into the United States
from the island at a lower duty
than now paid, while the rice
planters, rice mills, brokers and
exporters demand a reciprocity
agreement that will enable them
to supply the Cubans with all
the rice they import. The two
principnl products of Cuba are
sugar and tobacco, and a recipro- I
city treaty between the United
States and the new government I
would necessarily mean a reduc- I
tion of the tariff on these articles. (
The sugar growers assert that c
this spells ruin for their indus- i
try, and they are preparing to
fight it to the last ditch. The
rice men claim that a reciprocity i
agreement would enable the Am i
erican rice producers to absolut- t
ely control the Cuban rice trade:
that the rice industry is as much
entitled to government favors as
the sugar planters; that the Cub- 1
ans are now importing about
1,000,000 bags of rice annually
from other countries and that if
the proposed treaty is negotiated ,
it would practically double the J
rice crop of Louisiana and Texas.
The sugar growers will send a
strong lobby to Washingtonr
when congress assembles to op- i
pose any law toward a reduc- -
tion of the tariff on sugar and to (
antagonize the proposed treaty c

Gets Into Trouble and Goes
Into The Hands of
The following from the New
Oleans Daily States of yesterday
shows the predicament in which
the city of New Orleans is placed
by the waterworks company,
who hohlds a franchise, getting in
"The N ewOrleans Waterworks
Coinmny iv 1dayv. as thc result of
ta suit tiled in the United States
Circuit Court in this city, went
into the ]haiils of i receiver. The
acticnl was b)roi.m-hit b)y IRobert
Moore, a bondlhld, r of the com
pany. Judge Pardee granted
the order and named Mr. Frank
T. Howard as the receiver. Mr.
Howard is already in possession.
"The effect of the proceedings
is to tie-up pro'bably for years to
come, the affairs of the company,
under the protection of the Uni
ted -tates c',arts. The recent
(tecision of the State Supreme
Court is unlilkely to become eff
ective. whether there is an ap
peal to tihe United States Su
primce Court or not, for an indeti
nite time unless in the meantime
some arrangement is arrived at
between the Waterworks coin
pany and the municipal authori
ties whereby the plant of the
company may be turned over to
the Water and Sewerage board
with due allowance for the vault
of the colpany's franchise."
It seoems that the only remedy
for the difticulty is for the city
to buy out the waterworks com
pany. This is the experience of
niumerotus cities throughout the
country. Such instances go to
show that the lpgroper way to
handle suclh mnaters is for the
city to on\ a and operate its own
SVy-.tei. A snytemlI of water
wo.rks and sewlerage ownelld and
operated judici,usly by tihe city
would not be) a be lrden to anty-o)io
and 1111 wod eventually- be it source
of reve'nue. This is provei by
mainy instances of w tichi several
citize.ns : of Jeuniugs can testify.
