It would certainly boa very extraordinary
policy on the part of ourtiovcrninont lust ul
this thno to open uur malkt-t without
charge of duty to the enormous crops ot
sugar raised In the two spmlsti Islands.
Cuba and l'oito Hlco fnrnlsli tho United

Immense product of the Spanish planta
tlnnsattho moment Spain Is excluding tho
products of American fauns from her mar
ket would bo a policy as unprecedented as
It would bo unwlbo.
Ourtrndo with the American republics, as
1 woll as with tho West India Islands, has
been for many yoars in a most unsatisfac
tory condition, Tbo aggregate halutico of
trado with nil Latin America Is heavily
against us. A single Illustration will suf
fice. Sfnco we lepealou tno uutyoncouee,
In 1872, wo havo. Imported the products of
Brazil to tho eitent of SSJI.HOI.WII, nnd have
old to her only 5150.115,000 of our uwn prod
ucts. Tho dlleri-nco Kil,'"1.001-we havo
paid In gold or Its equivalent, and Ilr.i7.il
has expended tho vast sum in thn markets
otKuiopo. You can rea dlly foo how dltfcr
ent the icsult would huvc been if, In return
for the free admission of Ilrazllian coffee In
our markets, wo had exacted the freu
admlSBlon ut certain products of tho
United States In tho Hrazllhin maiket. To
rcpoat this error with sugar (loan nluuuut
threo times as large as with colfje) wilt
close all opportunity to establish reciprocity
of trado with Latin America.
The charge against tho piotcctlvo policy
which has Injured It most Is that its benefits
go wholly to tho inanufactmor and the cap
italist and not ut all tothe funncr. You and
I well know that this Is not tine, but still It
Is tho most plausible and tlu-icfore tbu
most hurtful argument niatlo by ttie Freo

think you will find some valuable hint on
the subject ill the President's brief lnCKsagn
of June IS, with as much practical wisdom
as was over stated In so shuit a space.
Our foreign market for breadstuff grows
narrower. Great HrlUtn Is exerting o cry
nerve to secure her bread supply flom In
dia, and the rapid expansion of tho wheat
area In ltussla gives us a powerful cornpet
I Hor In tho markets ot Kniope. It becomes
1 us, thcrcfoic, to use every opportunity for
tho extension ot our market on both of tho
American continents. With nearly $10),0')0,
