ALLEN CHAM HIS MIND

AVhcn Charles II Allen Governor of
Torto Rico went to the White House
yesterday he was firmly resolved to re
sign his office but when he departed
an hour later after having had a con
ference v Ith the President he hnd com
pletely reversed his decision The Prcj
Ident urged him to return to the Island
and resume his duties and although
somewhat reluctantly Mr Allen ilded
to Mr McKlnleys wishes and con cntcj
to continue In his office
Governor Allen accompanied by Mra
Allen reached Washington early yes
terday morning having come up from
Norfolk on one of the Norfolk and
AVnshlngton steamers They went to
the Portland where they will stay dur
ing the week or ten days they are to
remain In this city The Governor
then expects to go to his old hem in
Massachusetts to attend to some pri
vate business and will leave for Porto
Rico dm ins the early part of May
Before Governor Allen saw the Presi
dent yesterday morning he made the
statement that he did not intend to re
turn to Porto Rico It Is said that Mrs
Allen Is not well pleased with life on
the island and that is one of the icasons I
Mand
why tne uovcrnor aesircs iu remain in
the United States The President how
ever expressed his warm approval of
Governor Allens administration of af
fairs in the island stating that any
change made just now would be to the
detriment not only to the people there
but also to this country and finally
persuaded him 10 relinquish his thought
of resigning and return to Porto Rico
While Governor Allens tenure of of
fice is at present Indefinite It Is thought
that the President will yield to his
wishes after a time and accept his
resignation peihaps after another year
Governor Allen was asked yesterday
concerning his return to this country
and the affairs in the Island and said
Yes it seems very pleasant to get
back home after nearly a year
tropics
this time It has been a
ccedlngly active work interesting
and absorbing because it has bten
the working out of one of the most
Interesting experiments ever undertaken
In the way of colonial government
Other nations have had large experi
ence and an established form of govern
ment for the colonies and a trained
service from which to draw for expe
rienced administrators
In our case it was a novel experi
ment to attempt to Implant a civil gov
ernment based upon American Institu
tions in a country where the people had
been under very different rule for near
ly 4o0 years of a different race lan
guage habits and religion It was
therefore necessarily a process of edu
cation and evolution which I have no
doubt has been watched by those Inter
ested in such questions with as much
Interest perhaps as upon the part o
those actually engaged in the work
If 1 may be considered Impersonal
In the matter and as not In any degrca
referring to myself I am sure I will
not be misunderstood by you in say
ing the people of Porto Itico are to be
congratulated upon the character of the
men whom the President persuaded to
go to that post of duty as a patriotic
service I can testify as I cheerfully
do to the diligent and painstaking work
which they have carried on under con
ditions most wearing and entirely un
appreciated by those who In the nature
of things could not know of the diffi
culties surrounding the position
During the period to which I refer a
civil government based upon the law of
Congress complete in all Its depart
ments working along as smoothly as
could possibly bo expected has been es
tablished In Porto Rico The people
have carried on by themselves a gen
eral election A full legislative session
has been had and I have had the pleas
ure of presenting to the President the
bound volume of the first book of laws
passed by the Legislature of the Island
and I am satisfied a careful examina
tion of the character of the legislation
will prove complimentary to the ca
pacity of the people
I ought to say however that I be
lieve Senator Koraker bullded better
than he knew In the organic law gov
erning the Island and I feel after a
somewhat Intimate acquaintance with
the situation that the law Itself Inter
preted In the spirit in which It was
made will be found to work quite satis
factorily in Porto Rico for some time
to come
A commission from Porto Rico has
recently been in Washington and has
attracted some notice through the news
papers was suggested to the Gov
ernor
Yes Any legislation new to a coun
try Is accepted with great reluctance
naturally The Koraker bill provided
for the collection of customs at a rate
of 15 per cent of the full tariff but it
also provided that the collection of cus
toms should cease in the island in
March 1902 unless sooner repealed by
resolution of the Legislature of Porto
Rico to the President reciting that it
had enacted nd put Into operation a
system of local taxation to meet the ne
cessities of ie government of Porto
Rico
It therefore became the duty of the
Legislature to provide such legislation
against the time when the treasury of
that Island would no longer have the
benefit of the customs receipts Such a
law w js enacted It became popularly
known as the Hollander bill as it was
largely prepared under the direction of
Dr Hollander the Treasurer of the Isl
and It was based very largely upon
the systems of taxation In the States
of the Union modified so far as pos
sible to meet the peculiar conditions
of the island But by necessity it was a I
-very rauicai uepanure irom the meth
ods of taxation in effect under Spanish
rule by which the poor people were
made to unduly bear the burdens of
running the Government whllo the
rich escaped to a very largo degree
Each protest bo far as It related to
specific charges was listened to and
explained The bill provided for a
maximum tax of one half of 1 per cent
for municipal purposes upon the tax
able valuation of the island It is con
fidently believed that sufficient revenue
will be derived from this measure to
carry on the Govcrnroentfeconomlcally
and that when Its bearings become
known it will not prpVe the bugbear
which apprehension has pictured It At
nil events there is a Legislature of
the Island which will be In session for
the second time next fall or winter for
the purpose of remedying any defects
if such are found In this or any other
measure
The fact of it is American pople
have very little conception or tne
heights to1 which personal politics can
attain unless they have had experi
ence among the Latins It Is exceed
ingly unfortunate that partisan papers
I In the Island through personal argu
I ment should seek to array any portion
of a common country against the other
The administration of the island has
in all respects desired the co opcrallon
of all good citizens It is required of
those whonsplre to hold Insular office
that they should be loyal to the Amer
ican Government and that fitness for
office with such loyalty should bo the
fundamental endorsement rather than
that of some political leader
It has been unfortunate that a desire
lor sensational items should bo so
strong In the Northern papers Some
disturbances have occurred but never
with such serious results as has often
occurred in the United States Bar
room brawls hooting and howling
crowds on the streets a few stones
thrown some rattling sticks along the
palings have been stilllcient to occa
sion sensational cables to the North
which though denied promptly hn e
been circulated to the discredit of the
Porto Rico will prove a valuable as
set of the UnltedStatcs Civil govern
ment has been In operation only a year
During that time It has been absolutely
j self sustaining If has not cost the peo
i pic of the United States one penny All
its blllshave been paid from its own
resources if has money In the bank
and there Is general feeling of con
tent This view dues not apply to the
coffee districts There Is financial dis
tress there and a good deal of it and
the situation Is so involved that there
Is considerable perplexity to know what
to do It Is generally thought by those
best competent to offer an opinion that
liquidation Js the only solution And
this is always said with a feeling of

cannot be prevented -altogether

IMPROVED 3IIND
The Food
A famous woman says I am so much
in love with Grape Nuts that I presume
I otten bore people telling them about
the new food You certainly will make
nn etcrlasting fortune from the sale of
It The article has become the bent known
cereal on the market
It can hardly be called a cereal for it
Is not like the common rolled wheat or
rolled oats but It Is In the form of gran
ules ranging from the size of a pin head
up to twice or three times that size t
it Is thoroughly cooked at the factory
and requires no prrparatlon whatever
but can ie nerved Instantly with hot milk
or hot cream to make a hot mush or cold
cream can be poured In the side of the
saucer and a very dtllclous crlnp food Is
the result Not only Is the taste fascin

M C Markham assistant traffic man
ager of the Illinois Central Railroad In
his testimony before the Industrial
Commission yesterday j ave some In
teresting facts concernings the inability
of the railroads to enforce given rates
statln r that the power of the railroads
was circumscribed by the water car
riers and that the maximum they could
charge waH prescribed by the river
lakes and ocean cnrrlcrs
Mr Markham snld that prior to 1S70
the Mississippi River and lis tribu
taries transported the greater part of
the freight and passengers but that
since then the construction of the largo
railroad mileage In the Mississippi Val
ley had year by year gradually de
creased the volume of traffic handled
on the river In 1S70 thcrq were only
271S2 miles of railroad In eighteen
States In the Mississippi Valley ns
compared with over 100000 miles In
1900 As the mileage of the railroads In
creased nnd their facilities for handling
freight and passenger tratllc became
greater the river traffic has appre
ciably declined This trend was illus
trated not only by the decreased move
ment from the trade centres situated on
the rivers but by the withdrawal or
non existence of some of the steamboat
companies which operated on the river
In the fOs and earlier
Lines of railroad he said run
close to the fiver on both sides nearly
all the way from New Orleans to St
Paul and from New Orleans to Louis
ville and there are other lines of road
which detour from tile river yet con
nect the chief trade centres and con
trol the traffic formerly taken to tho
river by rail and thence forwarded by
boat
While this would seem to Indicate
that the railroads had sufficient control
of the traffic to bciable to dominate the
water carriers and fix rates arbitrarily
Mr Markham says that the Mississippi
and its tributaries are still a potent
factor in diminishing railroad rates and
revenues and their influence in this re
spect was not confined solely to the
traffic between situ
ated on thgrlycn The complexities and
necessities which confront the rail
roads in Tate making are such as to
make this river Influence almost con
terminous with the Rocky Mountains
on the one side arid the Atlantic Ocean
on the other
The recognized principle for rate con
struction adduced from long practical
experience born of strife competition
and rate wars between rail carriers the
demand of rival markets and the com
mercial necessities of trade had ren
dered it imperative that certain fixed
relations should be established In rail
road rates For Instance tho river
made the rales from StLouls to Mem
phis or New Orleans The railroads
running between these two points to
get a share of the traffic must neces
sarily offer rates -approximating those
of the river
Chicago was not situated on the river
but it would be placed at a disadvan
tage as regards the Memphis or New
Orleans trade If it were not put upon
a relatively fair rale plane Then the
railroads running from other towns sit
uated on ihe riicr such as Cairo
Louisville and Cincinnati were objged
to make rates approximating those
made by the boats and Inland towns
whose trade may be affected by the3
make claim on the railroads which
serve them for such an adjustment of
their rates as will equalize their disad
vantages
This system wouYd spread step by
step until almost tho entlro Northern
country had partaken In a measure of
the low rates made necessary In the
first Instance by the river Influence
Nor was this all for taking the con
verse of the situation described tho
rail carriers were confronted with a
condition that abridged thclr power to
uphold rates to and from the Inland
towns of the Southern States as much
as In tho Northern States By these
means Industrial enterprisers remote
from ihe rKer were enabled to trade
at business centres In competition with
those on the rivers and further In
land towns remote from the river were
enabled to Interchange trade between
each other at much morofavorable
rates than the railroads would be justi
fied in making if Ihe fiver influence
did not exist
In speaking of ratesof trafilc cast of
the line Mr
Markhrm said that the rates of traffic
destined to tho Southern States might
be affected by the ocean carriers to and
from north Atlantic and Southern ports
Railroads running Into the Southern
States by the Virginia gateways ho
Eald have to measure their rates by
these if they should prove to be lower
than those made by the influence of the
Mississippi River
The Great Lakes the St Lawrence
River and the Eric Canal he said
virtually dominate the rail carriers
rates on traffic Interchanged between
the Eastern and Western States The
rail rates between Chicago and New
York are adjusted in competition with
those established by tho lakes and
canals
