CONDITIONS IN CUBA.
PISTRESS OF THE PLANTERS IN SANTA CLARA PROVINCE. AMERICAN INTERESTS THERE PREFER TO AWAIT THE CRASH TO ACCEPTING INADEQUATE RELIEF. [nirtji a RprciAi. mm*M*n**mc*T of tttf. TRißr™.] Cienfu"gos. Cuba. April S.— Agriculture Inn guifhes in the great central province of Santa Clara. Agriculture means chiefly the sugar in duslry. Much tobacco of ■ fair grade is grown. srxl ■- cultivation Is spreading from the Reme oi<«? district through the whole province. The Rcmedlos product has felt the effect of the high tariff for several seasons, and therefore is not •^normally depressed this year. It would quick ly feel the benefit of substantial tariff reduc t on ; c nnd the revival and spread of tobacco growing would have •" perceptible Influence on the geiwral prosperity of the province. Vet, . jS compared with sugar, tobacco Is only a ir.lnor factor in this region. In th<? production of cane It is universally accepted that the most favorable conditions are on this j-oulh coast. Proximity to tide water, the newest machinery and most modern processes In the sugar mil-. a large infusion of American capital and American business meth o2s in the management of the plantations are a DOBBJbini of favorable circumstances. Fur thermore, less damage was done In this dis tiict during the insurrection than in other parts of the island. The Oienfuegos plantations can make money when others may be grinding race st a loss. If they are not making money thos" In other sections are sure to be losing. They are not making money on this season's crop. In all Santa Clara Province just two planters are credited with ability to carry .1 balance to the profit side vfjChe ledger. One. of th^se Is not yet certain that h» ill do this, but if his accounts do balance'favorably he at tributes It to enterprises incidental to his plan tation and not to sugar growing. In the indus try of growing cane and grinding it at his own mill he would be the loser. This planter Is able to borrow money at 4 per cent in the North while his competitors pay 12 per cent. One of them who recently secured a loan at 0 per cent was looked upon by his fellow planters as a marvel of financial ability. Th* great planters in the Cienfuegos district do not blame the United States becau?e sugar in the world's market has dropped so low. What they criticise the American Congress for Is the delay and the uncertainty In meeting the eco r.omic situation and the inadequate nature of the reciprocal tariff concessions with which it Is to be met. Most of them are BOW selling thf-ir sugar for whatever they can get. Specu lators may buy and bold it for the long period ■hid) will be necessary in order to pain th« benefit of the prospective reduction. That which some of the beet sugar advocates in Congress pretended to fear if a reduction were made to apply to this year's crop— the buying of the su?r.r by the nil I IMS — Is far more likely to happen BOW than if the concession had been made months ago. Every day's delay baa helped th" speculator at the expense of the planter. This is* the universal testimony here, where the planters are better able to hold and carry their crops than in other parts of the Island. Some of the larger American Interests have withdrawn their support to the propositions be fore Congress because of their disgust over the delays and the inadequate reductions which it Is proposed to couple with Impossible conditions. Bather than depend on 20 or 2T> per cent, they will await the crash which will force the United States to pram BO or 100 per cent. The Ameri can capital which within the last two years has come into the Cienfuegos plantations. In some t capital a means reorganizing them, has ? into the Clenfuepos plantation?, in some ix-ep as a means of reorganizing them, and in others as advances, which practically change the ownership, is not disposed to retreat. A. longer wait than was anticipated is necessary in order to secure results. More money must be had. But this dees not cause a loss of faith in the future of the Cuban sugar growing In dustry. It only causes disgust at the blindness of the American Congress in failing to see how closely political prospects are Interwoven with industrial conditions. While a few of the American interests, in their disgust ar.d resent ment, are ready to have Congress do nothing. Mill ill ill that they can take care of themselves In the crash that may come, this is not the gen eral sentiment. The majority would rather have the economic situation bettered as an accom paniment to the change In government. They are net seriously apprehensive about the power ■Wen is to be placed in the hands of the Cubans, for they find the transition going on more smoothly and with better prospects than they expected, but they know the value of a fair degree of industrial prosperity in sustaining •what they look upon as a political experiment of doubtful duration. Within ten da> nearly all the mills will have finished grinding. Some of them have kept on since March because they could not afford to Etop and figure up what they were losing. They knew that whatever the amount the loss would t« greater if they left the. cane standing in the fields. Now they must count up the number of sacks of sugar they have on hand, and decide whether they can afford to carry any of it over or whether the whole quantity must be dumped on the market. When this calculation has been made th~y must determine what they are going to do for next year. It is this latter problem which makes the industrial outlook in Cuba so dark after May I. Wages have been rising gradually to something like their normal level. and in the widespread effort to reconstruct the country there has been something like competi tion for field labor on the part of the planters. The present prospect does not encourage the icU-a of such competition in the future. In stead, the field hands are likely to be bidding againFt one another, and many of them, unable to find work, will drift to the town?. This al ways is a bad sign. The net probability is that Unless the legislation by Congress gives much Greater promise, than is held out, Cuba, with her mixed agricultural industries not fully re vived, and with undeveloped resources ot in finite possibilities, must look forward to a period of depression the outcome of which no one can foretell. This is the view formed after careful ■■% In th'- sugar producing region. As to immediate conditions, they were wittily "•scril^d by * local capitalist, who said the Planters were not the ones who should have sympathy. It had come to be a case of "pity tie poor creditor." None of the creditors are ex iting early repayment of principal. They are ittms: up nights wondering where the interest 'S to come from. This means no more credit for tne planters. But the latter cannot be evicted, tor no one can be found to "take over" the busi ness <f raising cane in the present conditions, and the creditor must keep on carrying the bur : - ■ The customs receipts at the Cienfuegos Custom House have fallen off 17 per cent in the last few months. At Sagua la Grande, the chief north ern port, they average $5,000 a month, as asralnst ft'/WMI a year ago. This is one of the 78,000 in Service in lanhattan and the Bronx Manhattan Rates : Business from $5 a month. Residence from $4 a month. Gne-Year Contract*. Monthly Payment*.

It also causes a doubt to be raised whether in financial circles in Havana the full extent of the depression throughout the island is under stood. C. M. P. HARMOKIE CUB ELECTION.

TRTED TO PABB JEWELRY OX PIER. WOMAN SAID SHE WAS AFRAID OF PICK POCKETS—MAY BE BRIDE OF FRENCH OFFICER. A woman in a long white cloak enured Custom House officials considerable annoyance by her actions on the pier of the French steamship company yesterday. The woman was one of the passengers who arrived on the steamship La Champagne, and her name, which she 're fused to give, was said by an official on the rhlp to be Mm<--. Mariottl. The two Custom House watchmen at the en trance to the pier were forced twice to push back a man wearing a light suit, a black derby and having a light brown mustache, who in sisted on forcing himself through the lines. He had no pass and said he wanted to meet a friend. The man at last stopped his efforts to gain entrance. Suddenly the woman in the white cloak darted forward and attempted to pass a bracelet -watch and a pocketbook to the man who had been giving the Custom House officials so much trouble. One of the watchmen grabbed the man before he had time to take the two articles from the woman's hand and pushed him outside the gate. The other watchman caught the woman's -wrist. and aft^r a slight struggle prevailed upon her to go back to the end of the pier whence ehe had come. When the woman was questioned she said that a passenget on the steamship had told her to beware of pickpockets when she went on the Pier and she had attempted the transference of her 'watch and money to her friend outside the gate, «o that she would be In no danger of being r°"lr °"l was told." she added, "by Mme. Rakhmo toff one of my fellow passengers on the steam ship and the wife of the Kusslan Minister at Sofia that the Custom House officials in this country were all very nice men: but they are disgusting. That little bulldog man at the gate he grab my arm and pinch me so hard; but I pinch too. ' He had a lot of flannel things on his arm. so I think I not hurt him much." The woman said her friend outside the gate was her "bridegroom." but she refused to give his cr her name or any further information about herself. To an expressman she directed that her two trunks be sent to the Waldorf- Astoria. Room No. 1*395. Then, carrying two handbags, the woman left th» pier, met her friend outside the gate and kissed him affec tionately. . A dispute then arose between the man ana •several cabmen about the price for driving him and his companion to the hotel. The cabmen wanted $1 - r ><». while the man refused to pay more than .*1 At the Waldorf-Astoria It was said that Room No LSK was. at present occupied by Captain Hauet a retired officer in the French artillery. It was also said ;hnt his description tallied with that of the man at the pier. • Captain Paul Hauet arrived here on the steamship Grenada a week ago. He formerly served on the steamship Han High, which has al«o been known as the Llbertador and the Bolivar and which, under General Natos, Is operating against the Venezuelan Government. C. F. U.

MONDAY. APRIL 14. 1902. THE COLLATERAL LOANS TAX. COMMISSIONER YKRKKS TO RENDER HIS DECISION" MONDAY OR TUESDAY. [::V rSXXORAPH TO THE TinniNK.l Washington, April 13.— John \V. Yorkes. the <"om missionor of Internal Revenue, told a correspond ent of Tlip Trlhur.f yesterday that he was ln the act of writing his decision in regard to tho collateral loans tax, and thai he hnd authorized no state ment to be made in regard to the opinion, which he does not propose to render before Monday af ternoon or Tuesday. At the same time a rumor was current in Washington last night on what Is said M be fair authority that the Commissioner's decision will sustain Ills former action Impojlng a tax of 2 rents on raf-h WOO of stock placed us se curity for tho future payment of loans. The ruling requiring this tax was made by Commissioner Terkes on February R on a case presented by Colonel P. G. Thompson, the revenue agent at New-York. At that time it was held that th<- mem orandum of a loan transaction where «to< k was used as security was subject to a stamp tax. The action was in accordance with a previous ruling made on October 4. in a case where the Pennsyl vania Railroad Company desired to deposit with the Glrard Trust Company certain certificates of stock to secure a loan of $30,000,000. By the decision in this case, which was sustained by Attorney Gen eral Knox. the payment of a tax amounting to $WOOO wa.s demanded as th^ sum required under the law for using corporation stock shares for se curity for l<ians. In addition to these rulings, a decision was handed down by the Circuit Court for the Southern District of New-York, upholding the constitutionality of ih» law which was enforced to collect this tax. Immediately after it WSS announced at the Treasury ihai revenue agents throughout the country would be Instructed to proceed with the collection of th.» collateral loan tox. Rudolph Keppler, president, nnd H K. Pomroy, vice-presi dent, of the New-Tork Stock Exchange, rume to Washington to request Commissioner <-rkes to suspend the collection of this tax until they .-ouM be fully heard with arguments designed to show why such a tax should not be levied. iWore this. it may be recall* d. a New- York broker refused to pay this tux. for the purpose of making S test case in the courts. No further collections were th«n made until t'.-c fight was decided in favor Of the government nt-me tim» afterward. In compliance with the requests of th« Stock Exchange officials.

Wii'.iam F. Buckley is recovering from the stroke of paralysis which has confined him to his home. No. 49 West Forty-(\fth-st.. for the last three years, it is expected that he will be fully recov ered noon. Mr. Buokley is well known in Wall-st. He Is connected with the St. Louis and San Fran cisco Railroad Company, has been a trustee of the New-York Life Insurance Company since 187 S. and for thirty-four years has been a member of the Tnion League Club. The stroke of paralysis was the result of a fall from v trolley car. THE WAR ON THE SHARKS. NEW EVIDENCE OF OrrRESSION BY IN STALMENT MEN AND MARSHALS. JEROME INTERESTED IN THE CRUSADE APPREHENSION AMONG THE DEALERS. Active and energetic steps will be taken this week to press the cases of the city marshals against whom evidence has been collected by the LegaifAid Society and The Tribune. Many different organizations and not a few city offi cials have been interested in the scandalous fashion in which the ponr and ignorant have been cheated and terrorized. District Attorney Jerome, who is now well settled in his East Side home, expressed his feel- Ings very freely when his attention was called to the Rosario case. He was greatly disap pointed at not being: able to press the case him self. Opportunity will certainly be given to him in new cases that have come up. Robert Hunter, head worker of the University Settlement, has expressed a desire to co-operate with The Tribune and the Legal Aid Society, and the matter may be brought up at a meotlng of the council, the governing body of the Uni versity Settlement, at its meeting on Tuesday night. Miss Loew and R. C. Rlngwalt. of the Legal Aid Society, have promised The Tribune new and sensational evidence next week, the result of careful examination and investigation in the countless cases brought under their immediate charge. Among the instalment dealers a great deal of apprehension has been aroused. The arrests were greatly reduced last week, and evidence of the fear the instalment dealers and marshals feel for the outcome of the investigation is apparent. The Tribune's account of the scenes daily wit nessed In Ludlow Street Jail, where the poor, the ignorant and the unfortunate are sub jected to every sort of pressure by their inhu man oppressors, has stirred the community and already promises of assistance and co-operation H. C. RI.VGWALT. Who has taken a leading part In the flsht against th*« oppressive practices of the city mar shals and instalment dealers. have come In from lawyers, from city officials and from public spirited citizens. Perhaps as striking an evidence of the sort of thing that is going on as can be found comes In the expressions of the officers at Ludlow Sm-nt Jail. For the marshals and the instal ment dealers these officials express the greatest abhorrence. It Is only by the exercise of the utmost self-control that they can bring them selves to deal with them, even in an ofDcial way. Bo overbearing have the Instalment dealers become, that they show no regard for anybody. 'May I ask who you are?" was the impudent query made by one of them, when Mr. Rlngwatt advised "Joe" Romano, whose story was pub lished In yesterday's Tribune. "Yes," replied Ringwalt, squaring back his broad shoulders. This was rather too obvious a suggestion for the Instalment dealer, who re treated In confusion. This is a fair sample of the cowardice that underlies their action. Even when they go to pull a man out of bed in the small hours of the night they take care to have a posse of from three to seven men along. COLLIS URGES AX ECONOMY. ASKS THE BOARD OF ESTIMATE TO ABOLISH NEEDLESS PRIVATE SECRETARYSHIPS. General Charles H. T. CoIUs on Saturday sent to Mayor Low the following letter: New-York. April 12. 1908. Hon. Srth Low chairman Board of Estimate etc. My Dear Sir: During the recent municipal cam paign one it.m of extravagance complained of was the employment of private secretaries by beads of departments, which offices were created "v the last administration for the first time in the history of the city and were filled by favorites who had no civil service qualifications, and who drew large salaries without rendering any adequate service. Home of these were us follows: Salary. In th« r»pnrtm«>nt of Highways fi /'.*' In the Department of 6ew*r« ''■-■•'* In the Department of Brldgna - -'"> In th<« I>cpartmpnt Of Water Supply -.••"•► In tho Department of Hull. line Lighting, ftp 1...00 As a taxpayer. In the interest of economy, and speaking from knowledge «nd experience. I ask that your board will at once abolish these sinecures. All the departments were formerly administered by the Commissioner of Public Works, who had no private secretary, but was able to conduct his office with two typewriters and clerical force costing annually In the Rorouch of Manhattan $b..740, as apnlnst'sl4l.W under the last administration. The employment of unneeded private secretaries regardless of Civil S<?r\ice rules must inevitably lead to nepotism and favoritism. Yours very truly, CHARLES H. T. COLLIS. FACTORY AND FOUNDRY BURNED. TENANTS IN NEIGHBORING HOUSES BADI.T FIIIGHTENED. Tenants in a number of two story frame houses In Walwortb-st.. between Flushing and Park aveS., Brooklyn, were thrown into great excitement early yesterday morning by a tire which partly de stroyed the furniture factory of Masel & Huebner, NO. 29 to 35 Walworth-st.. and the pipe foundry of David Blnn. across the street. No one was in jured, though one or two persons narrowly escaped suffocation. The Ore broke out in the basement of the furni ture factory and spread rapidly, jumping across the street to the pipe foundry. The latter was al most totally destroyed. A quantity of kllndrled wood in the furniture factory made a tremendous blase, and brands were scattered all around the neighborhood, which is filled with small wooden houses. The ponce were active in waking up the tenants, who hurried into the street in scant at lire. Some of them brought their furniture out, and stacked it up in indis criminate heaps around the neighborhood. Al though several of the small bouses caught lire, only two were badly damaged— at No. lt> and No. 28 Walworth-st. The police placed the total loss at 175.000. TO APPEAL TO THE MAYOR. The present city administration was accuse, l at yesterday"? meetinK of the Central Federated Union of foiling to keep the promises made to the labor unions by the reform candidates before the (lection. Delegate McMahon, of the Eccentric Engineers, reminded the Central Federated I'nion that the announcement hail been made of a proposed cut of 10 per cent in the wages of all city employes, and continued: The candidates before last election promised to pee that the city employes were paid at the pre vailing rate of wages. Now they want to cut them down I>> 10 per cent — not, however, the wages of the hljrgest salaried men, but of such men as the engi ne.rs and nremen iMid other worklngmen. An ad ministration that wan denounced everywhere before the present administration came into power gave us the prevailing rate of wages, wblcfa we secured after years of work. It took us a lons time to prove to the Mayor and others that the prevailing rate of wages meant the minimum rate. If we don't look out sharp now we will receive les.s than the prevailing rate. McMahon then moved that a committee he ap pointed to see the Mayor, the Controller and the Board of Kstimate and Apportionment and a°k that the prevailing rate law be left untouched.
