While the United States Grasps
Bishop Candler's Plea for the Island.
Bishop Warren A. Candler
thus writes for the Atlanta Jour
nal from Cienfuegos, Cuba:
If the well nigh unanimous
judgment of all intelligent ob
servers in the island way be ac
cepted as correct, the situation
in Cuba urgently requires im
mediate relief by the reduction of
the duties now imposed on Cuban
products imported into the
United States. If there is any.
body who dissents from this
view I have not met him since
coming here, although 1 have
talked with* men of all classes
foreign and native, from Havana
to Cienfuegos.
The condition of congestion and
stagnation may be inferred Lrom
a single statement which is taker
from a local newspaper in Havana
and which is doubtless exact.
Tais journal declares that there
are now 250,C00 bags of sugar it
the warehouses of Havana, ag
against 83,000 at the same time
last year, and that at that pori
the exports to date amount tc
no more than 43,000 bags. The
tobacco interest suffers similarly
but perhaps not altogether as
badly. Sorie claim that it suf
fers even worse ihan the sugar
A protective tariff at its besi
is an expression of national sel
fishness and commercial coward
ice, but in this case, when al)
the history, of our relation tc
. Cuba is taken into account, it
does not fall short of being posi
tivelv infamous.
We forced upon Cuba our de
mand that the United States

an eye on commerciail treaties as
well. Now, with this power o.
supervision in our hands, w
binder Cuba's trade with others
while with our 'tariff laws w(
almost forbid trade with our
selves. 'i he case of the dog ii
the manger is scarcely as bad a
this, for he did get a bed fron

ness-not a straw. When Gene
ral Weyler adopted his policy c

America burned with indigno
tion. But the tendency of ou

mak hie whole island a canmp c

gestion of produc-ts brought t
pr,by our prohibitory dutiE
we mak~e the planting of cane an

ble, and while thus running t

liberation a sacrifice of preciol

*we allow that chapter of .o
nationa'l history, which for a t
semed like a chapter of int
nationlal chivalry, to be dimmn
by the continuance of a pohey~
eruel to the Cubans as it is d
- reditable to us?.

Oxnard and his associates? C
aLssuances have been given
n,nkind that our motives in
intervention in Cuba are
selfi-1h impulses of human:
shall these professions be bel
on the first temptation, and t
too on a templtatwOn so small?

tour o>f the six provinces proc
sugar or tobacco in any con
erable quantity. Now is it
ridiculous for the entire si
nad tobacco interests of a g
contrv to fall into paroxysnl
fear becaus four little provi
of one little island are grant
fair chance to sell their products
in the United States?
And the matter will appear
still more ridiculous when it is
remembered that we do not pro
duce in the United States more
than a fracton-a very, vulgar
fraction-of the sugar which the
country consumes. This means
that our protective tariff lays
tribute upon all the people of
the United States and at the
same time deals Cuba a stagger
ing blow-all in the interest of a 1
small number of people engaged I
in the sugar business-mostly in
the beet sugar business. Mr.
Dooley's proposal of the beet as I
our national flower is amply justi
fied by this extraordinary par
tiality which we manifest for its
producers. If this partiality is
to be perpetuated the proposal
of Mr. Dooley should be adopted
forthwith. But Mr. Oxuard
seems to have misgivings about t
the permanence of our fondness
and makes hay while the sun
shines. A press dispatch from
New York printed in one of the t
Havana papers informs the
Cubans "that it has becoue
known here that Mr. Oxnard, thAE
president of the Beet Growers'
association, has just closed con- c
tracts for the supply of beet
sugar which extend over the next t
five years." This is the way this
infant industry takes care of
itself while bawling for pap from
the public purse. When it gets
grown there is no saying what it
will dare propose. Now it would
strangle Cuba; then perhaps it
will undertake to choke the
western world.
Of course this economic ques
tion affects every other issue in
Cuba. Educational, 'social, moral
and religious interests must all
be influenced when the very
necessaries of life by which the
saved from perishing
ment above $2;000, b';-'- *
nually spent on public education.
When Cuba's own government is
set up it will be dificult to main
tain the schools now in existence
even under the most favorable
conditions. But if the present
tariff rates are to be maintained
by our government these schools
must die ,outright for lack of
funds to sustain them. Is the
- light of intelligence to be extin
guished that the profits of the
growers of beets may be in
creased? Is this a proposal of
ivilized men or of barbarians?
The pira e ;OiTa p coaid hardly
have done worse by the crafts
which they overhauled.

How Elen. Jenkins Was Killed.
Gen. Micah Jenkins was killed
by our own men at the Wilderness
on the 6th day of May, 18640 not
far from where Stonewall Jackson
was mortally wounded after the
battle of Chancellorsville in
1863. Gen.Longstreet was bady
wounded by the volleyr that killed
Jenkins, which was fird through
mistake at the Twelfth Virginia
r i by their comrades of
DMahone's bri ownTlankroad
were moving the Plnk o
at a critical moment of the battle,
Y Jenkins' brigade by the road and
h Kershaw's division alongside.
11 Gen. Longstreet roadat the hea

t- Jenkins and Kershaw, and after
s, discusSing the proposed disp"si
n tion of their troops for reopening
es battle, Jenkins.:rpde
e Longstreet a

th am now relieveu, assured -
re that we will put the enemy back
ee acrnss the Rapidlan before night."
,- These were the last words he ever
)al spoke. The Twelfth Virginia had
tcr been in advance, and was return
d. ing to its place across the Plank
,re road when the other regiments of
to the brigade opened fire, believing
it was an advance of the enemy.
rds The Virginians threw themselves
e. to the ground in order to let the
Lny fire pass over them, when the
ay group of otiicers rode into the
line of fire, and Jenkins fell mor
taliy wounded.. Longstreet was
struck with a iminia -ball, which
ely pased through his throat and
ons right shoulder. Capt. Alfred
ut Doby, of Kershaw's staff, and an
ca orderly named Bowen were killed
of instantly.
ii These facts are stated because
itd so many errors have been pub
nly lished recently in regard to Gen.
ye. Jenkins, growing out of the prom
inence given to his son in an in
ciden-t due to the unfortunate
- of conduct of others. Gen. Jenkins
om- held the rank of brigadier genera~
which he received for gallant and
meritorious coZ.duct at Seven

tion Farm in 1862. Jenkins' brigade
