In terest centers In a projected meeting of Cuban veterans nnd other prominent men to consider the question of approaching Pino Ouerra and other Insurgent com manders, as well ns lenders of the liberal party and members of the government with a view to ascertaining whether the difficulty cannot be settled through n compromise. Many Cubans, however, feel that patriotism demands that some united ef fort bo made to end the war and avoid the possibility ot Intervention by the Fnlted States. There Is no question that foreigners would welcome intervention to resloio peace, and many Cubans would do like wise were it not for the sentiment of pride In making It appear that Cuba Is able to mulnlnlu order within her own boundaries, nml nn unwillingness to have tho world regard her ns the ward of the I'nlted States.

The crop reports Issued by the depart ment of agriculture nil AiimisI Vj indi cated another record-breaking ear. Pre liminary leturns put the winter wheat crop at r.i:!,l.:t,(J'J bushels. The spring wheat ciop was estimated at J7S,S.W,0Cu bushels, making .i tota: piobahlu wheat harvest of 772,2eil,W, which is mole than was ever piodtieed In any oilier country In the world, about p'.O.Ot.'1) " 'J more than our own average production for tho ten years piecedlng, and neirly 2I.'W.(J more than our greatest previous year's produu t.un, in 1!'01. i : Along with the greatest wheat ciop wo have also the promise or the greatest (Om crop on iccord u less J.713,- lm.WJU hujlieK Add to this u twchcinll- llon-bale cotton crop, an excellfiit tobac co crop, and clops nl oats, barley, rye, and othei minor cereal- running from fair to fine, and It seem evident that the I'.trniets of tho United Htates will havo een more money to spend, the railroads mote freight to carry, and the merchants more goods to sell this year than last. All thiough tho winter wheat belt there has been a lemarkiible Increase in tho yield per acre. The gam is unbroken, from Pennsylvania to ''allfornia. In In diana and Ohio, old sjtates whose, soil might bo expected to be showing signs of exhaustion, thu average yield has gone alove twenty bushels to tho acie a yield that would havo been eonsldeied good few years ago for an exceptionally favor ed faint. In Nebraska the average has risen to 23.2 bushels. Uist year, when we had the next to tho latgest wheat crop ever produced up to that time, three of the eleven principal winter wheat States averaged les.e than ten bushels to the acre. This year only one State has aver aged less than twehe bttsln Is and only two less than fourteen. List year only three States went above eighteen bushels; this year three hae gone above twenty. This years gigantic crop of 772,000,000 bushels of wheat of all kinds has been produced on an acreage ten pur cent. smaller than tho ISM crop of lll.OOO.uOO bushels less. It is a noteworthy fact that tho amount of land sown to wheat In thn United States scouted to reach Its limit seven years ago. In 1SW we had 52,3sfi74 acres In wheat an area equal to that of Kan sasand wo have never equaled that figure since. In otlnr wotds, the State of Kansas, If It were all good wheat land, could produce all the wheat we have eer raised In tho United States In any ono year. Whllo wo have over three million square miles of lanfl In all, It appears that only about eighty thousand or less than three per cent, of the whole, can bo devoted to wheat-growing. This year's record crop has been raised on less than Foventy-flve thousand. Tho only prospect of a material Increaso l'i found In tho re clamatlon of arid lands by Irrigation. Tho corn crop Is ono of vastly more Importance to tho United States than the wheat crop, although that is the groat est in the world. Our 2,713,0uO.00O bushels of corn this year would load a freight train extending two-thirds of tho way around the globo. This crop has been raised on 95,633,000 acres of land about twice tho acreage devoted to wheat and the greatest over given to corn In our history. Tho American cornfields are about equal In extent to tho Japanese empire, and their yield In a single year would pay off the national debt of tho United States. Lnst year Secretary Wilson said In his annual report that If the Amorlenn farm er could go on without relapsn for three years longer ho could look back over a decado and find that In thos,o ten years ho had produced nn amount of wealth "equal to ono-half of tho entire national wealth produced by the toll nnd compos ed of the surplus and saving of threo centuries," Ono of thn three years has passed, and Instead of a relapso thero has been an advance This year's crops alone would pay for half tho railroads of United States.
