Washington, Deo. 87. The Spanish
tariff question is the one that is attract
ing most attention here during the holi
day week and it appears that unless Spain
backs water" very soon the threatened
proclamation of retaliation will be issued.
But the proclamation will impose "dls
criminating flag duties" Instead of taking
the course supposed to be authorized by
the act of 18'JO. These discriminating
duties will be lrnpascd on Spanish, Cuban
and Porto Rioan import into the United
States. The intimation of this purpose
on the part ot the president is distinctly
onnvcyed in a request received by the
treasury department from the department
of state to furnish it with detailed infor
mation as to the amount of such imports
and a list of the vessels carrying the Span
ish flag which trade with our ports.
lo Hack to tha Old Mar rill Tariff.
It was tho original intention of the state
department to have recourse to the power
of prohibition of Spanish trade conveyed
by the act of 1890, but as this power has
never been exercised, and as It probably
has been deemed best to follow in the line
precedent, it is quite clear that the
department has fallen back upon section
42ft of the revised statutes. A paragraph
of the old Morrill tariff act, which still
stands on the stat ute books, imposes a
duty of 10 per cent, in addition to all other
utics upon goods brought into the L nited
States in ships of foreign countries, unless
they are expressly relieved from the addi
tional duty by treaty. These are
nown as "discriminating flag do'
ties. Section 422S aliove referred
to authorizes the president to sus-
Kjud tho benefits conferred by the discrim
inating flag statute on being satisfied that
any country is discriminating against the

Screws l'ut to Spain Oaoa Before.
It is a singular fact that the only coun
try which has so far felt the force of this
provision tif l:w is the very one against
which it is . he again used. In 18S6 our
relations v h S-nain were so strained that

stipu' i .-u that the differential flag duties
should be removed at once from the Unit
ed States products entering Cuba and
And She Prom J tly Cllmbed Dowaj."
Being satisfied that higher and discrim
inating duties had liecn imposed he there
fore revoked tho suspension of the dis
criminating customs duties imposed in
the ports of the T nited States upon Cu
ban and Porto Kican products coming
under the Spanish Hag. The effect of this
action by tho president was almost in
atnntancous. for in fourteen days there
after he issued another proclamation stat
ing that by an agreement entered into
that day (Oct. '-7, $) tipain had re
moved -the Eaiirce of our complaint and be
again restored her to treatment under the
favored nation clauses of our treaties.
OUR TRADE WITH THE SPANIARD.
Tha Halanee Tery Lararly Against V Ex
cept Wit b dpala Heraelf.
Treasury officials, at the request of tho
state department, are engaged in collect
ing statistics showing the volume of the
trade that would be affected by a repeti
tion or his action in 1836 by the president.
It appears that the Spanish colonies would
get much the worst of it. The tables
show that during the fiscal year endial
June 30 lust Culia alone exported to the
United States goods to the aggregate
vnlno nt f7r,u7!,2M and took from ns
good to the amount of only 919,t&237.
Porto Kica sent us in the same time goods
valued at 3.1&,G34 and received in return
goods to the amount of f2,75IT,64o. With
the direct trado with Spain the case was
reversed, for our exports to that country
amounted to $13,114(76, against imports
amounting to w .sri.87..
The tariff differences lictwcen Spain and
the I nited t-totes arc being watched with
interest by other sugar producing coun
tries, particularly Hawaii and Brazil, as
the execution of secretary Greeham's
threat to discriminate against Cuban pro
ducts will create a heavy demand for raw
sugar, now brought almost exclusively
from Cuba. Mr. Hastings, in charge of
the Hawaiian legation, is an interested
observer of the Spanish negotiations. The
Hawaiian sugar planters have been giv
ing close attention to cuba of late, many
of them visiting the island and studying
the Cuban processes of making sugar.
One of them wrote Mr. Hastings re
cently of the antiquated methods prevail'
Ing, and another Hawaiian planter pointed
out to him that the Cubans got buti'5 tons
of cane and two tons of actual sugar to
tbe acre. Tho Hawalians thought that
double this yield should bo obtained and
that Cuban plantations could not exist if
cut off from tbe u nited states market.
Being only 100 miles from this country
they deicnt entirely on it for disposing of
their great product, Hawaii would expect
to Ix-ncfit if Cuba were shut out.
The Hawalians expect soon to conclude
European treaties. Minister Thurston
has written Hastings briefly from Lisbon
to the effect that his trip to Spain la prov
ing entirely satisfactory. The msnister
has visited many European countries for
the purpose of inducing them to renew
their treaties of commerce and amity
with the now republic of the Pacific. He
also sought to make arrangements for lm-
gration to Hawaii of the better classes of

This meeting, called by John J. Martin

ot yet received any notice of the meet

Oaa Enma for Chans Wheat,
Washington, Dec 27. Our consul at
Bamberg, Louis Stern, has submitted
some statistics to the department of state
showing the remarkable stimulation of
trade between Germany and Russia son
sequent upon the negotiations of the new
commercial treaty. The imports of Rus
sian grain into Germany, in particular,
have reached such proportion that the
consul believes it proper to call the atten
tion of the American trade to the fact.
The exportation of this Russian grain
into Germany during the first ten months
of the current year has Increased 106.2 per
cent, and of barley 21 per cent., as
compared with the present year.
