People Have Noticed How Portq'Rig. -is Thriving and Would Like:..:: to Share Prosperity. Havana, Aug. 2.--Thepast two . three months have .witnesl e 4 a : .markable recruesacence ct tl~e .mir can annexation idea in at least- t of the largest 'and -most proniine0 branches of the &riti$h West IndisEr piossessions, Trinidad and Jamac. The leaders of the agitatio~ are gemn erally planters 'and business. men,. These point to the growing'proeps~ ity of Porto Rico and denounce the system of riiss h ceo lQnal gpyrfl~ ment. They also note e, desperate e estage '"sugar".ibIsprd if . he deploy islands *ni Uelioutly huggest annexe tion to the 'United States 'as the only. possible chance of reviving their fall= en fortunes, . - ." Such is the view of the. planters and, business men and both tggether form' a very influential class-,-perhaps the most influential of the community. S fr týt faid of . -the foli. ý The ina.ives on the other hand ie~ urrect stcries 'bf lynching and the workings of the anti-negro law in thb southern States and declare -theim selves emphatically against anneka tion and strongly in favor of the Brit ish rule, whiclt!gives them a feeei thit, has become to them even more precious thap industrial and financial prosperity. Between these two fac tions ,comes another class, influential enough, though in a hopeless minor ity, holding that a federation with Canada is the only remedy for the ills from which the islands are un doubtedly suffering. And \ between them all the newspapers have been kept, busy publishing letters and rec ommendations and protests. One paper had finally to decline to pdblish any letters bearing on the subject. Sick of-British Policy. The truth of the matter is that in telligent 'people here are becoming al together sick of the British colonial -poliy, a policy, thqt has resulted in the almost total destruction of the sugar industry of}thq islands. The fruit' trade with the United States is the most profitable undertaking in 'Jamaica today, Its growth Is continu ous and phenomenal. It is 'the main stay of the island. Nqbody attempts to deny that without the United Fruit company., an American 'concern, the island must- long ago have given up the struggle. The depression over the country is zs acute as, it is real. 'The govern ment departmental repbrts teem with references to it.t Taxes are becoming harder to collectr People 'are daily getting out of work, in consequence of failure of the sugar 'ndgatry with in the past few months. Thousands 'upon thousands have been prosecuted for non-payment of taxes. They are generally given a month or two in which to gity up their dues or in de fault take a term of. imprisonment, which does not cancel the-debt. Uncle Sam Could Die t. It is-the opinion of .a number of intelligent men tha if -the expensive system of government which obtains there were superseded, by a system of 'the kind introduced' in 'Porto Rico, the island would not be long in recov ering itself. 1he ealary' of' $25,000, besides namerous exemptions and privileges, whioh the governor is paid, is regarded .s 4istinctly extravagant and out of all prdpo~tion ·to the col ony's revenue. 'The revenuie cannot 'be increased. Import duties are at the' highest possible point and the goternment. tlare not ryse them any higher.
