Gov. Winthrop Discusses in an In-,

ties for Young Men on Island.
:: j l
. .
BY WILLIAM E. CURTIS.
Written for The Star and the Chicago RecordHerald.
Gov. Beekman Winthrop of Porto Rico,
himself a young man, and one of the youngest
that ever held a position of so great responsibility
under our government, grows
very enthusiastic in talking about the opportunities
for young men in that island.
He Is here to submit his annual report to
the President: to answer any questions that
his official superiors or the committees of
Congress desire to ask, and to urge that the
honor and privileges of citizenship be conferred
on his constituents as recommended
by the President so strongly In his recent
message.
Gov. Winthrop is also enthusiastic about
the prosperity of the island and the rapid
manner In which its material development
Is going on. He is accompanied by Mr.
Faulkner, the superintendent of education,
who tells an interesting story about the
schools and the eagerness with which the
people are seeking knowledge, and especially
to learn the English language.
Shortly after American occupation the
island was visited by a terrible hurricane in
which three thousand people lost their lives,
many millions of dollars' worth of property
was destroyed, and the coffee industry,
which formed the principal basis of the
wealth of the peor^e. was practically wiped
out. But things have been picking up grad
ually ever sinre and not only has there been
a large Increase in the three principal oxports?sugar.
coffee and tobacco?but the
total trade last year was the largest in history.
For the past four years tne balance
of trade has been in favor of the island,
although there was a decrease last year in
the balance of trade because of a fail of
about 25 per cent in the price of sugar and
a rise of about 50 per cent in the value of
rice imported.
Great Increase in Trade.
The greatest trade for any one year prior
to American administration was in 1S0C.
when the total exports and imports reached
$22,771,474. It is interesting to compare
that high-water mark with th-i development
of the trade, which has doubled during
American occupation.
The following table will show the growth
of the foreign trade duri. j the last six
years:

Opportunities in Agriculture.
"The opportunities for young men in
Porto Rico lie mainly in agriculture," said
Gov. Winthrop, "although there is a fine
chance to make money in railroad buiLding
also. Sugar is the most profitable crop,
and' therefore It is developing more rapidly
than the others. e need capital both for
planting and to build mills for grinding the
cane. The construction of a mill, however,
with its expensive and complicated machinery,
requires the Investment of a large
amount of capital?all the way from a quarter
of a million to two millions and a half
of dollars. Two centrals, as they call them,
built since the American occupation, each
represents an outlay of approximately
$2,000,000, but they are not large enough to
handle the business, and more mills are
being erected all the time. There are four
or five now under construction, and old
mills of Spanish times are being rebuilt at
an expense considerably under a million
dollars each. As Congress, In a joint resolution
adopted in May, 1900, restricted the
investment of American capital In large
agricultural undertakings, no sugar company
can own or control more than 500
acres of land, while a modern mill can
handle the cane from 10,000 to 15,000 acres.
nencc it 12) iictcasai y iu v.uunav.i iut cauc
before a mill Is built and to get the plantation
owners interested to take stock In the
enterprise. We have advantages over Cuba
In raising sugar, because our labor Is more
abundant and reliable and our crop Is admitted
free to the United States.
Porto Rico's Coffee.
"Less capital is required for coffee culture,
but It is not so profitable as sugar.
It is a poor man's crop; anybody can grow
coffee, while It requires large capital to
raise sugar. The census for 1899 reported
21,093 plantations, of a total of 197.0CK)
acres, which gave an average of about
nine acres to the plantation. According to
the same census 40 per cent of the land
under cultivation was In coffee. Since then,
however, the greater part of the plantations
were seriously injured and some of
them were entirely wiped out of existence.
A few Americans have gone into the business,
and It offers unlimited opportunities.
A man can start a plantation on a capital
of $2,000 and upward provided he can wait
five or six years for the trees to reach maturity.
It takes five years to get a crop
after the trees are planted. There is pleflty
of land for sale, and it Is cheaper than
sugar land. The only danger is from cyclones,
which, however, are very rare.
Upon the cofTee crop depends the prosperity
of Porto Rico, and the solution Oi the
problem lies In an Import duty of from 3 to
5 cents a pound. The government has endeavored
to create a market for Porto
Rican coffee In the United States, and has
established an agency In the city of New
York, which has accomplished something,
but Is hampered by lack of funds. Most
of the Porto Rlcan coffee now goes to Europe.
"Tobacco Is a very profitable crop, even
more so than sugar, while the r.sks are
about the same. Tobacco is a poor man's
crop also and can be raised without any
large Investment of capital. There is plenty
of suitable land In the river valleys of the
Interior which can be bought from $40 up
to $250 an acre, according to location and
was not shipped with the precautions necessary
to Insure its reaching the market in
good condition. The fruit was allowed to
fall from the trees, was carried to th? shipping
port on muleback and packed promiscuously,
no attention being paid to grading.
For this reason it did not command a high
price. During the past year, however, much
greater care has been taken in shipments
and the planters have b?en duly rewarded.

shipments of cultivated fruit will be made,
and at the end of two or three years a large
number of the trees of the different plantations
of the island wul have reached maturlty.

trees should begin to bear in two or three
years, although their full yield will not be
reached for some years later. Fruit growing

improvements. Most or tne plantations are
small and a good many young Americans
with limited capital are going into the business.
Production of Citrus Fruits.
"There has been a large Increase in the
production and export of citrus fruits.
Prior to American occupation, citrus fruits
were not cultivated In Porto Rico, but at
the present time there are probably some
T.000 acres set out and under culUvation.
Until the past year the native wild fruit

good returns to the owners. Various classes
of orange and grape fruit have been introduced,
in addition to lemons and limes. The
cultivated fruit brings a good price in the
New York market, and the groves of the
island have the advantage over those of
California and Florida in cheap freight
i rates to the northern markets. There is,
moreover, no danger of frost, which has so
often destroyed the crops in Florida.
"There has been considerable increase in
the growing of pineapples, especially the
varieties which proved best adapted for
shipment to the United States markets,
j Several canneries are at the present time In
operation, and large shipments have been
made with success to the United States. In
several Instances pineapples are grown In
connection with citrus fruits. When planted
between rows of trees, approximately 4,000
pineapple plants to the acre can be set out
without unduly interfering with the trees.
When planted by themselves this number
can life increased to eight or ten thousand
per acre.
Fiber and Other Plants.
"The legislative assembly of 1905 approximated
the sum of $10,000 for the cultivation
and commercial exploitation of fiber and
other plants in Porto Rico. Under authority
of this law. and with the advice of the
Department of Agriculture of the United
States, a number of bulbils of the Yucatan
Henequen plant were introduced and an attempt
Is being made to secure a large number
of suckers of the same variety. This
plant, probably more commonly known as
"sisal," grows readily on poor and dry hillsides,
where other crops will not flourish.
"Cattle breeding is also very profitable.
We supply Cuba with a great deal of beef
and neat oxen for draught animals.
Building of Bo&ds.
"We have plenty of government land, but
It has not been surveyed and It will be
some time before it can be Dlaced UDon the
market. Most of Jt Is inaccessible also, but
we are constructing a. system of macadamized
roads which will reach every corner
of the Island and then these lands can be
opened to settlement. The government has
already built nearly 300 miles of flrst-class
macadamized roads, in addition to the 109
miles that we found there when we came.
A loan or f l.uuu.wu naa Deen auuionzea
and will be offered to the public In January
exclusively for roads and bridges, so that
we hope to have every district In the island
connected with the seacoast very soon. At
present one of the richest tobacco districts
13 entirely without roads, so that the crop
has to be carried to market on pack horses.
It costs a good deal to keep up roads In
Porto Rico because of the heavy rains. It
costs more to build them than In the United
States, because the bridges as weU as the
roadway must be so substantial. We have
100 miles of railroad now In operation, and
there are four other roads under construction,
which will give us about 100 miles
more. They are being built with both
French and American capital. ,
"Forto kico 13 tne oniy pan or uie unuoa
States where there is an excessive supply
of labor, and we have exported several
gang's of workmen to the Hawaiian Islands,
but they are a misfit over there and the
scheme has not been successful. They get
homesick and are unhappy. Owing to this
excessive supply of labor wages are very
low. Ordinary labor is paid 70 cents and
skilled labor $1.50 for an eight-hour day.
Another authority reports unskilled labor
at 75 cents to $1, and mechanics at $1.50
to $2.25 cents for a nine-hour day. A third
Axes 8 cents per hour for unskilled labor
and 15 to 25 cents per hour for skilled labor.
The largest tobacco company In San Juan
pays 91 per utty ui nine xiuurs lur una&uicu
labor. Dock laborers receive 16% cents jTer
hour on regular working days, and 25 cents
per hour on Sundays, legal holidays and
for night labor. Outside of San Juan the
price of unskilled labor is lower, averaging
between 40 and 00 cents per day.
Suited for a Winter Resort.
"We have a delightful climate, especially
from November to April, and It is never uncomfortable
except in May and September,
when the trade winds stop blowing. People
who have their own houses can make
themselves Just as comfortable as anywhere
in the United States, but we need
good hotels very much and they would pay
well. Porto Rico ought to be a winter re
sort for tourists from the United States. It

there are many other attractions, but the

It was dangerous to go plose to Crawford,
so De Vita lay down on the ice, while another
boy seized him by the ankles and
pushed him tward Crawford. The second
boy's ankles were seized by a third, and
then a girl made the fourth in the chain.
Just as De Vita was about to seize Crawford
the latter let go his hold on the ice
and again disappeared. When he came up
De Vita seized him by the shoulders, and
then at his command the chain moved slowly
back. The Ice cracked several times,
but the rescuers did not bolt until they had
brought Crawford to safety.
