EXTRAVAGANCE U CUBA
PRESIDENT TUT XOT TO
CALL A HALT.
Will NoA Interfere wUk Republic's
Independence S&mation Still
[Fr m: The Tribune SnretAS.!
Washington. May L v — Cuba continues to
prove a source of anxiety to the administration.
rCcthing lias occurred which can be construed
as warranting, or even requirlrg. Interference
by the T'nited States, but as the elder brother
of t\- n*>w republic, who wants to see all go
veil with the island, the administration is
frankly worried. Extravagance is prevalent at
Havana. There is -i disposition to lavish funds
on useless diplomatic representation, and an
'evident inability on the art of the Gomez ad
ministration to withstand the pressure of self
ish politicians which arc disturbing.
Since attention was first called to this sit
uation in ■ dispatch to The Tribune of May --•
the President has received some advices which
are more reassuring. Nevertheless, he would
be grateful to see President Gomez exercise
grcatf-r restraint on those who are clamoring
for the public funds.
Of course, til.- I'm'- States lias ample power
under the Flatt amendment, incorporated in
the Cuban constitution, to restrain the admin
istration at Havana if it goes too far. Cubs is
thereby prohibited from assuming; or contract
ing "any public debt, to pay the interest upon
which, and to make reasonable sinking fund
provision for the ultimate discharge of which,
the ordinary revenues of the island, after de
fraying the current expenses of the government.
shall be inadequate.- But that situation ha
not arrived. In fact. Cuba has a comfortable
sum in the Treasury and a limit of $l»».."i<*>.<MX)
within which the public debt may be increased
ouster a decree of Governor Ma goon.
But. on the other hand. Governor Magoon
authorized a number of contracts to meet the
payments on which this debt was designed, and
reckless extravagance at this time will inevita
bly result in hardship for the republic later.
The contracts let by Governor Magoon must be
lived up to, and the payments must be met as
they fall due. They were decided "•■ not only
for Cuba's own pood, but because they were
deemed essential to the sanitary protection of
the United States. Should Cuba fail to make
the contractual |>ayments, this country would
be at least obliged to take charge of the custom
housfs. as has been done In Panto Domingo,
and defray the indebtedness from the revenues.
Th'-re i.<= an impression in Washington that
President Gomez 'would be glad if President
Taft called a halt on Cuban extravagance, as
that would give the Cuban Executive an excel
lent excuse for refusing the demands of the
politicians, hut Mr. Taft is not disposed to take
this step. He might have been glad if Secre
tary Dickinson had enjoyed an opportunity to
utter wholly Informally, a word of warning, but
he will not" do anything whim could be con
strued as interfering with Cuba's complete in
dependence. He believes the republic should
work out its own salvation without help from
Washington. • , ,
Nevertheless, there is a disposition to deplore
what at this distance appears to be the signs
of weakness in the new Cuban administration.
Some members of the administration, less san
guine than the President, construe the present
situation as indicating beyond peradventure that
the time -hen this country will again be com
pelled to assume the direction of Cuba s des
tinies is not far distant.

SUGAR SUIT GOES ON.
One Witness Did Not Know He
Had Been President of Company.
George. M. Newhall. who said he had had twenty
years' experience as a sugar refiner and had built
the plant of the Pennsylvania Sugar Refining Com
pany, testified yesterday in the $30.0000.000 suit
brought by the Pennsylvania Company against the
American Sugar Remifaig Company, John E. Par
sons and Gustave B. Kissel, on trial In the United
States District Court before Judge Holt.
He described at length the facilities of the plant
as it was before the forced closing resolution, which
is alleged to have been planned In the offices of the
ro-called Sugar Trust and passed by the directors
of the Pennsylvania Company after It had been
reorganized with Kissel and bis associates as mem
bers. II is now charged that this resolution was
the result of a conspiracy on the part of the oill
cers and directors of the American Sugar Refin
ing Company to wreck the plaintiff company.
The capacity of the refinery, the witness Bald,
was three thousand barrels a day, or about six
million pounds ■■ week. In Ids opinion sugar could
be made cheaper there than In any other plant In
the country. When John G. Mllburn, of counsel for
the defendant, threw some doubt on the claims re
garding the capacity of the plant Mr. Newhall said
that the plant had been supplied with everything
necessary to bring about that end.
W. Howard Ramsey, a former president of the
plaintiff company, continued his testimony <■£
Thursday and admitted that In his relation to the
company he had never thought of himself or acted
as anything more than a dummy for Adolph Segal.
William H. Whlteslde. another director, testified thai
he as a nonentity at the meetings of the board
because Segal always told him what to do. Charles
D. Baker, another president of the Pennsylvania
Company, did not remember that be had held that
office until he was shown the minutes of meetings
at which be had presided. He knew that the com
pany had a refinery, he said, because "he read it
in the newspapers."
Th«- trial will be continued <>n Tuesday morning.

CENSUS BILL MAY FAIL
Continuation of Present Late Blow
to Civil Service Reform.
I From Thf> Tribuno I'.ur. an ]
Washington, May 25.-Unless the two houses of
Congress adjust their difference* over the pending
census bill no measure of that character will be
passed by Congress, and the law providing for tho
taking of the last census will become operative.
This was assured to-day when Representative
Tawnier announced that he was preparing an ap
propriation bill to cover the expenses of the next
census end the permanent census work. This Dili
will authorise the expenditure of $10,000,000 to carry
on the work of the census for two years. hen
this Is passed the Appropriations Committee will
consider that i: has done Its duty and will leave
the method under which the census is to be taken
Under the old law the "spoils system" was In ef
fect and if co adjustment of the differences between
the two branches of Congress is reached this system
will prevail in the thirteenth census. The old
law provides that the employes shall be appointed
by the Director of the Census after a non-competi
tive examination, an.l that each applicant must be
Indorsed by a Senator or Representative to become
eligible It was this provision In the bill which
was responsible for its being vetoed by President
Roosevelt and which, it is understood, has met
with the disapproval of President Taft. if no
new law is passed, however, it will be Incumbent
on the President to accept the present law or to
delay the census until Congress passes a satisfac
The appropriation bill in preparation by Mr.
Tawney will also embrace a provision reducing tho
charges of bonding companies which have dealings
with government employes. Mr. Tawney believes
that these companies are charging exorbitant
rates, as has been outlined in these dispatches,
and he is determined thai some legislation is nec
essary to protect the government employes.
The failure of Congress to enact a new census
bill will be regarded by the friends of Civil service
reform ay a hard blow to their cause.

He made th- rounds with a crusading party of
