Ins the policy of th«» administration.. Sound morals no less than good business judgment de mand that we shall build up rather than destroy the purchasing power of our new possessions if st hope to do business with them. Manufact uring interests all over the country deluge the government with inquiries as to the markets that have been opened to American goods in the archipelago, and others are awakening to the fact that control of the Cuban markets is slip ping from our hands, while politicians and wife acres solemnly debate, into the hands of more enterprising Germans and Englishmen. It is a fact not resecting great credit upon our political acumen that, having expended much blood and treasure to make Cuba "free" and to control bet destinies afterward, we should now find our commercial relations with the island to be grow ing less active rather than, stronger,, and to see ethers who made no sacrifice reap the fruit of our labor. Almost pathetic appears the demand made by some people who want the Cubans to explain how this happened, before applying a remedy that should have suggested itself long ago. The homely philosophy of the saying that you "cannot eat your pie and have it too." ap plies in this case as in others. It is impossible to do business with the Philippines or with Cuba unless you give them a chance to sell us some thing. * They buy $37,000,000 in goods from Great Britain and Germany to-day because they are able to sell their products in those countries and are unable to do so in the United States, and they will continue to increase their trade with those countries, under present conditions, Indefinitely. Our trade will continue, correspond ingly, to decrease until, in time, it may disap pear altogether. AMERICAN SUGAR INTERESTS. In the readjustment of tariff rates, the friends of such a policy admit, somebody must suffer, of course. It may be. they say, that the beet not sugar manufacturers may not be able to control more than their local markets, should such a policy be inaugurated. It is an industry in which considerable money has been invested, but it dees not seem to have made the strides that at one time it was thought it would. Not withstanding a. protection -which in one way or another amounts to 14' per cent, the yearly eui-plv has in ten years reached the insigmn cant amount of only 130.000 tons. There is this, however, to be said, that indirectly it furnishes a profitable occupation to thousands of people, and that the by-products of the sugar beet farm are by no means an unimportant factor in the agricultural economy of the country. And while it may be said that the farmer would simply be compelled to sow his fields in rye or wheat instead of beets, and therefore would be no loser in the change, it vet must be admitted that a diversity of crops is not an advantage to be lightly lost sight of, or to be deprecated. The interests of the Louisiana cane sugar growers, who return, year after year, free trade Congressmen clamoring loudly for protection •whenever sugar is being discussed, are identical with those of the beet root sugar men. Of both of them it may at least be said that they are employers of American labor. This is not the case, of course, with the Porto Rican and Ha waiian sugar growers, who resist the extension of the privileges which they enjoy to sugar growers in the Philippines and Cuba, not on the broad ground that it would injure Ameri can labor, but because it would cut down their profits. "What those profits are may be judged from the fact that in Porto Rico a certain sugar plant, since the American occupation of the island, has never returned a yearly profit of less than 40 per cent on the investment. j These, then, are a few' of the arguments pro and con which will determine the policy of Con gress toward Cuba and the Philippines. They have been set forth with every endeavor to be entirely fair to both sides— those who, with the administration, wish to see the most liberal policy of reciprocity inaugurated consistent with the legitimate demands of home industries, and Those who, in favor of more drastic measures, s=eek to reach the goal at a single bound. The attempt will be made, in another article, to throw some light on the situation as it is af fected by the demands of the tobacco industries of the country. KQ DAMAGES EOR BOYS DEATH.

The second trial of the action brought by Julius "Willson to recover $5,000 damages for the death of his five-year-old son, Lawrence, who vas killed on April IS by a car belonging to the Metropolitan Street Railway Company, ended I yesterday, after a hearing before Justice Truax and a jury in the Supreme Court, in a verdict In favor of the company.

Willson presented evidence ;o show that he had expended .?100 on his son's funeral and SSI for medical attendance, so that the verdict for |Mt would only have awarded him $119 for the loss of the child.

"We ieel that we are as much entitled to State hood." taid Mr. Stoddard, "as some of the other mining States of the West, and we are able to shew a far greater degree of material progress than many of our neighbors now in the sisterhood of States. The population of the Territory amounts to about one hundred and twenty-five thousand now. and is increasing rapidly. The development of the copper and gold mines of the Territory in the last eighteen months has been tremendous. "Since I became Secretary of the Territory. In June, about fifty different railroad companies have filed plans for new lines or extensions in the Terri tory. Not all of these will be built, but probably more than a dozen of them will be. A new road will soon be begun to run from Phoenix, the capital, southward to the Southern Pacific. The subject of irrigation is receiving the greatest attention. There are a number of projects or. foot, the successful working out of which will mean the reclaiming of millions ot acres of arid lands. The climate is all that could be desired. The lack of water is the greatest drawback in come sections of the Terri tory.

GOTT HEIL AGAINST IT. The opinions of =. number of Jewish thinkers on the question of opening saloons on Sunday were obtained yesterday. Rabbi Rudolph Grossman, of the Temple Rodolph Sholom. East Slxty-third-st. and Lexington-aye . believes strongly that the sa loons should be opened after the religious services in the morning. "A statute that is violates strikes at the majesty of the law," said Dr. Grossman to a Tribune re porter. "Leave the side dcor open as at present and you teach the children of the city the hypocrisy of their elders. Carlyle once said when an attempt was made to legislate morals into the people of London that society could only be made pure by educating the individual to b« moral.

Introduce Into New-York the German idea of beer gardens; aban don the American bar. which Is so non-conducive to moderation .of drinking. Beer drinking when not carried to excess is innocent. Surround a man by his wife and. children, in a decent resort, and he will behave himself. The worklngman must be permitted to indulge himself on Sunday in legiti mate pleasure.
