SAY HE WILL STICK
President Retains His Original
Views as to Reciprocity
with the Cubans.
STATEMENT BY CHAIRMAN PAYNE
In iVh!ch He Notes the Points of the
Three Propositions TL'nder
Washington. March (. The follow
tug authorized statement was made
public at the White House last even-
big: "Any statement that the pros
dent has changed his attitude on the
Cuban reciprocity business is without
the slightest foundation in fact."
Vay lie Also Isiiei a statement.
Chairman Payne, of the ways and
means committee, gives out the fol
lowing authorized statement in con
mctiou with the discussion over Cu
ban reciprocity: "I think the large
majority of the Kcpuhlicaus have
luade i:p their minds that we must
do something for Cuba. There art'
three propositions presented which
have this professed end in view. The
."reposition of Mr. Morris, of Minne
sota, provides for an increase in the
tari'T on Migar to tin outside world
and a rebate on sugar imported from
C uba. It does not seem to me thai
many Kcpuhlicaus an willing to in
crease the duty on sugar.

'"Then there is the proposition of
Mr. Tawiie'y to-vote between .s7.i(.-
(MH! ami SS.ihio.iniii directly into the
C uiiaii treasury, and to ask the Cuban
government to distribute about ?l.mi!.-
(kmi according to his figures, to native
Cuban planters. This lirst payment
is to lie paid without any compensa
tion from Cuba in i:i,y way or manner
a pure gift to tin Cuban govern
ment. It hardly needs the opinion of
a lawyer 1o say that such a procedure
weuld be unconstitutional. His propo
sition further is to pay a like sum
yearly on the granting of reciprocal
ci.neossions and the passage of our
immigration and exclusion laws. Of
course, no bounty of this kind could

Favors the Iiiis;ley Ilei i urority.
"The third proposition is that for a

pled with the provision to extend our
exclusion laws to Cuba no one ap
pearing before the committee on ways

Complications About the Indemnity.
Chinese official fear that the re
fusal of the bankers' commission to
accept the February installment of the
indemnity will rentier the collection of
future installments more dinn-uit. Sir
Hubert Hart, director of the imperial
customs, used every argument of per
suasion to impress the viceroys of the
various provinces with the importance
of promptly contributing their
shares of tin indemnity. When
it becomes known that the 1.-
M'o.ooo taels of the February install-
nicnt is l.ing in the Chinese bank bi-
cause the foreign governments are un
able to agree to terms concerning its
division the Chinese will possibly re
lax their efforts to meet the future in-
tallmeuts. Sir Kobert Hart has sent
letters to the ministers of the foreign
powers here, calling their atiention to
the complications likely to result if the
money, which is deposited in the Chi
