Washington, Jan. 20. Senator

tion directing the committee ou finance

CLAIMS OF CULLOM
For Reciprocity Treaty With Cu
SAYS THERE'S MILLIONS IN IT
Text of the Amendment Offered by
tee. Washington. Jan. 20. The senate
devoted two brief executive sessions
yesterday to the Cuba a reciprocity
treaty. At the lirst session the tnaty
was read at length, and at the second
session Cullom, who as chiirtuau t.f
the senate committee on foreign rela
tions has charge of the trity, made a
statement of its purport and effect.
Bacon, also a member of tie foreign
relations committee, gave notice that
he would have some amendments to
the treaty to offer, and asked the priv
ilege of making them public, following
the example of the senate in making
the treaty itself public. This request
was denied after considerable discus
sion, on the ground that it would Le
Impolitic and unwise.
Cullom'j Statement Exhastlve.
Cullom's statement was exhaustive.
He produced a mass of ligures-to show
the extent of the co:iii!ierc between
the United States and Cuba, and gave
reasons for a belief he expressed that
the ratification of the treaty would
cause a rapid increase in the trade be
tween the two countries. He said
that on the basis of t!i" commerce of
Itxil the ratification of the treaty
would cause a reduction of about $3.-
(HNMMX) on the dutv ttaid on Cuban
imports and a corresponding reduction
of about half that amount on United
States articles shipped to Culm. He
contended that the United States would
secure an advantage in continuing, as
the treaty does, the present fret: list,
as under this arrangement there are
about SS.OOO.OOO worth of United
States goods admitted into Cuba free
Hopes the Treaty Will Win.
It was important, he said, that the
freel ist continues as at present: if
there should be any change in the Cu-
in tariff the United States might be
deprived of this advantage. Cuiloin
dwelt at some length on the probabil
ity of an increase in the volume of
tradeunder the operation of the tr.'aty,
saying that this would be the result
not alone of the reduced tariff "out of
the mutual good feeling produced by
ratification. He said he did not believe
any United States industry would be
injured by the ratification or the
treaty. He considerd the agreement
from all standpoints one of mutual
benefit, and expressed the hope that
the treaty would be ratified without
AMENDMENT OFFERED IiV BACON
Provides far Action 1t the House Text
of the Committee Amendment.
When Cullom concluded Da eon of
fered one of the amendments, of which
he had given notice. It provides that
'this treaty shall not take effect until
the same shall have been approved by
the congress." This amendment is in
line with amendments recommended
by the committee on foreign relations
in connection with other reciprocity
treaties, and if adopted would require
the house to act on the treaty. The
amendment was not discussed.
The official text of the amendments
of the treaty made by the committee
on foreign relations has been made
public along with tlie text of the
treaty. It shows an important varia
tion from the text of the amendment
as unofficially printed. According to
the official print the prohibition of low
er rates of duty on sugar imported into
th United States from other countries
is confined to action by ""treaty or con
vention." Following is the full official
text of the amendment, which is at
tached to the eighth article of the
treaty, declaring for preferential rates
between the two countries:
'"Provided that while this convention
is in force no sugar imported from the
republic of Cuba, and being the prod
uct of the soil or industry of the re
public of Cuba shall be admitted into
the United States at .a reduction of
duty greater than 2 per centum of
the rates of duly thereon as provided
by the tariff act of the United States
jpproved July 21. 1S!7. and no sugar
the product of any other foreign coun
try shall be admitted by treaty or
onvention into tlie United States.
while this convention is in force at a
lower rate of duty than that provided
by the tariff act of the Fniied States
approved July 2i. 1S5I7."
