PUERTO » TARIFF
Plain Statements Which Show
Up the Opposition.
It is Not in the Interests of the
Ii usis and (lie Hryau
Howlers Know It.
New t York Mail and Express: The
ease is a ?ery simple one. The presi
dent nade his recoaftnendatioo laHt De
cember to give Puerto Rica's products
fret' access to our markets because he be
lieved it iras right and bent, considering
the condition of that island, and tint be
cause it wan required by the constitution.
He has not changed that view. If that
were the Bole principle involved, we are
authorized to nay, lie would insist upon
it though he atood alone. Since hin rec
ommendation, however, another principle
has been invoked involving the most
vital question connected with the whole
matter of our new territorial posses
sions. The president belives that con
gress haH the constitutional power to
levy duties upon the productH of the
new territorial acquisitions.
Thin is denied, especially by democrats.
If they can prevent its assertion; still
more, if they can have BOCta action by
congress an denies its existence, then
they' can t;o to the country with the
argument that the administration hap,
by ith policy, acquired new populations
unfitted for Btatehood, yet claiming the
rights of full citizenship and the right to
inundate our markets with their pro
ducts free from customs duty, thus im
pairing the value of our own labor by
competition with the cheapest labor in
the world.
The question, therefore,is not between
a principle and an expediency. It in a
question between two principles, one of
them Fundamental. It is between assert
ing one of them in the interest of Puerto
Rico alone, or the other in the interest
of the whole country now and hereafter.
In the latter cane any departure from
the riirht constitutional principle cannot
be rectified, and the damage done will be
irremediable. Not a single step, once
taken, can be retraced. In the former
case, it will work no injury to the inter
ests of Puerto Rico.
That inland jh today without revenue
and the people are suffering. It has no
government except a military one. It
will be some time before any machinery
for raising revenue can be put in opera
tion. Meantime, Puerto Rico must be
taken care of and enabled as rapidly as
possible to famish the revenues for its
own expenses. By the bill which the
house has passed it is relieved from every
other form of tax except this 15 per
cent, of the existing tariff laid upon its
products coming into the United States
and the products of the I'nited States
entering Puerto EUcao ports. Every
dollar of this is turned back to its own
use. The measure is for revenue, and
only temporary at that, and can be fol
lowed by free trade as soon as the great
principle which recognizes the power of
congress to legislate for these new terri
tories is vindicated. The necessity of
this interpretation of the constitution,
after tbe debate in the house, is para
mount, and is considered important to
our success in the Philippines.
The principle of free trade recommend- j
ed for Puerto Rico, and which the presi- j
dent evidently hopes in due time to see
prevail, has, therefore, yielded only for
the time being to a more important
principle. The necessity of the case and
the honest difference of opinion which
led to the new issue are frankly recog
nized. The president appreciates that
he must to a large extent rely upon his
own party in the administration of pub
lic affairs. He is bound to weigh against
any personal triumph the demoralization
and disorganisation of his party.in the
legislative branch of the government,
upon which he must depend. No greater
calamity could happen than to have his
party majority tall down on the very
threshold of their consideration of these
island questions, Under these circum
stances, the president did what he
thought was right, and we believe that
time will vindicate the wisdom of his
course.
Against, Not for, (lie Trusts.
Another exampleof democratic perfidy
is the attempt to charge that the re
publican party is surrendering to the
trusts in asking for the Puerto Rican
tariff. Congressman Page Morris ex
plained the situation fully in a recent
speech at Duluth, Minn. He said:
"Another objection was that this bill
was prompted by and is in the interest
of the sugar and tobacco trusts. It
would seem that the smallest acquaint
ance with the facts would show the utter
groundlessness of this assertion. The
business of the sugar trnst is the refin
ing of sugar, and its raw material is
raw sugar. The business of the tobacco
trust is the manufacture of chewing to
bacco, cigars aud cigarettes, and its raw
material is leaf tobacco. All of the
sugar that comes from Puerto Rico is
raw sugar, and all the tobacco that
comes from Puerto Rico is leaf tobacco,
ibe sugar trust has to get most of its
raw sugar from outside the United
States, only about one-tenth of what
they retine being produced in the United
states It must then be to the interest
of both these trusts to have both of
these raw materials come into the United
States free of any duty.
"So far as I have been able to ascer
tain the facts, the sugar trust and the
tobacco trust have both been moving
heaven and earth to have no duties at

all, and the beet BOgar industry, repre
sented by Mr. Oxnard, haH been* equally
diligent in trying to have the full Ding
ley rate retained on sugar.
"From the best information attain
able it appears that there in now held in
Puerto Rico, awaiting the action of con
gress on thin measure, about 3,000,000
pounds of tobacco and about l. r»,()()0
tons of sugar. Mont of this tobacco
and sugar has panned out of the hands
of the producers and is now held by
speculators or by these trusts. At 15
per cent of the Dingley rate this tobacco
and sugar when brought to this country
would have to pay duties amounting to
between $249,000 and $250,000. If no
duty is charged it will pay nothing. So
that under the bill as it panned the peo
ple of Puerto Rico would get this money,
and these speculators and trusts would
have to pay it, while under free trade
the people of Puerto Rico would get
nothing and these speculators and
trusts would be released from having
to pay this large amount.
"In other words, the removing of the
15 per cent of the Dingley rate would
make a present to these speculators and
trusts of nearly $250,000 and would de
prive the people of Puerto Rico af that
amount of revenue. Now, gentlemen,
where does the interest of theee trusts
come in. Is not this simple statement
sufficient to dispose of this cry about
the trusts'' <)f course, we all understand
in Washington their tactics. It is the
same old cry of 'Stop thief!' and as
usual they have got their democratic
friends and dupes and the enemies of the
administration's policy to do the loudest
crying."
NO MOKE CIGARETTE SMOKING.
Weather Bureau Puts the Bar Upon
the Little Killers.
Washington, March Chief Willis
Moore, of the Weather Bureau, has
issued an order prohibiting persons con
nected with the service from smoking
cigarettes during office hours, and stat
ing further that those who smoked ciga
rettes at any time would be mentioned
in the confidential reports which are
made quarterly to him by chiefs of the
several offices aud divisions throughout
the entire service. Chief Moore said to-
day :
"The order wss issued after careful
consideration and a thorough investiga
tion of the evils resulting from cigarette
smoking. It will stand. In this service
we are compelled to maintain a very
strict discipline, in order to secure satis
factory service. Some of our men who
are regarded as the most thorough
and competent, doing every detail of
their work with the utmost promptness
and accuracy, gradually became careless
and lax. I sent inspectors to investi
gate, and in a number of cases it was
found to be directly attributable to the
use of cigarettes. I am not prudish,
nor do I wish to assume any authority
whatever over any privilege which the
employes of the service should have,
but, as a public servant, I feel that it is
my duty to correct any evil that may
i exist even if in attempting to make this
claim I am overstepping my authority.
I The order applies to the entire force of
the bureau throughout the entire ser
vice. Cigarette smoking must cease.
Cigars and pipes are not barred.'

Still More Counterfeiting.
The Secret Service has unearthed an
other band of counterfeiters and secured
a large quantity of bogus bills, which
are so cleverly executed that the average
person would never suspect them of be
ing spurious. Things of great value
are always selected by counterfeiters for
imitation, notably the celebrated Hoe
tetter's Stomach Bitters, which has
many imitators but no equals for indi
gestion, dyspepsia, constipation, ner
vousness and general debility. The Bit
ters sets things right in the stomach,
and when the stomach is in good order
it makes good blood and plenty of it.
In this manner the Bitters get at the
seat of strength and vitality,and restore
vigor to the weak and debilitated. Be
ware of counterfeits when buying.
