The Rice Industry and Reciprocity.
There was a meetingyesterday
at the Board of Trade rooms, at
which a number of gentlemen
representing the rice interests
were present. The two United
States Senators from Louisiana,
the Hon. S. D. McEnery and the
Hon. Murphy, J. Foster, as well
as Representatives Adolph
Meyer and R. C.Davey, were al
so present by invitation. The
purpose of the meeting was to
confer upon the wisdom of ad
vocating reciprocity with Cuba
in the interest of Louisiana and
Texas rice. It was explained
that Cuba was a large consumer
of rice, and that Louisiana and
Texas rice could fill all of Cuba's
wants if such rice could be got
into Cuba by means of favorable
tariff rates or by a complete re
moval of the tariff. Of course,
great friendliness was expressed
for the sugar industry, but it
was freely admitted that recipro
city with Cuba of necessity meant
a reduction in the sugar and to
baccoduties,as those wereCuba's
principal products, and recipro
city could be made profitable to
the island only on the basis of
free sugar and tobacco.
It would have been much bet
ter had the meeting referred to
never been held, because it can
be productive of no good what
ever. The Senators and Con
gressmen present made it very
clear to the rice men attending
the meeting that advocacy of re
ciprocity would be very hurtful
to Louisiana interests, and not
the least injury would be that
done to the rice interests. Sen
ator McEnery pointed out that
rice was a protected industry,
the duty on clean rice being in
posed strictly as a protective
duty. As it produced little re
venue, there is always a strong
temptation to reduce on remove
it. The mere admission that the
domestic rice industry has pros
pered so greatly as to have a con
siderable surplus for export
would be at once seized upon by
those favoring traiff reduction as
an argument in favor of the re
moval of the rice duty altogether.
Our Representatives are un
questionably right in warning
our rice men against the danger
of advocating reciprocity. How
absurd it would be to sacifice the
2 cents per pound protection on
domestic rice merely for the
privilege of shipping a few hund
red thousand pockets of clean
rice to Cuba. Would it be good
business to offer Cuba a removal
of the duty on sixty to eighty
million dollars' worth of her sug
ar in exchange for a free market
for probably less than a million
dollars' worth of rice?
Our rice friends should consid
er also the utter seltishness of
their proposition. In order to
secure a market for a portion of
their crop, which they may or
may not control as a result of
reciprocity, they are willing to
see sacrificed the great domestic
sugar industry, with its hund
reds of millions of invested capi
tal, whose annual product is sev
eral times as valuable as the en
tire rice cr6p. The ruin of the
sugar industry, which thrives
side by side 'with the rice indus
trylin this State,would be a stag
gering blow to Louisiana, from
which it would take the State the
better part of a century to recov
Everybody admits the impor
tance of the rice industry and re
joices at its prosperity. That it
should be encouraged, fostered
and protected is generally ad
mitted; but our rice friends must
not ask that other industries be
ruthlessly sacrificed, or even
placed in jeopafidy, merely to
secure them a new outlet for
their product. Any reciprocity
proposition which is likely to im
peril or damage a single Ameri
can industry is a bad proposition
for the American people and
should be promptly rejected.
