IBy Associated Press. II. Allen, Governor of Porto Rico, who arrived In Washington this morning, had an hour's conference with Presi dent McKlnley today. Great interest Is manifested In Governor Allen's visit on acount of rumors that It Is his Inten tion to relinquish his post in the Is land. After tho conference, however. Gov. Allen announced that ho would not re sign, but would return to his duties in Porto Rico about the first week In May, after settling some private affairs. Speaking about affairs, Governor Al len said that the situation had Improv ed very much In every way since ho be came Governor, over a year ago. "The civil government established in Porto IfrcysaTGovcrnmflien,' "isVSrk" Ing smoothly. Various departments have been organized and our adminis tration 'Is seemingly giving general sat isfaction. In tho matter of railways there has been wonderful progress. Much of the island which was not un der cultivation under the old regime is being taken up and made profitable. "In old established Industries in Por to Rico there have been great improve ments In all except coffee growing and production. Unfortunately this Is lan guishing at the present time. The pro duction of sugar has been increased from 40,000 tons last year to probably 100,000 tons, as estimated for this year. The sugar Industry is bound to flourish owing to tariff discrimination in Its fa vor. Tho orange Industry Is being in creased by Investments of Americans." "I beliovo Senator Foraker bulldcd more wisely than he knew In tho or ganic law governing tho Island. I feel that that law itself will be found to work qulto satisfactory In Porto Rico for somo tlmo to come." When asked about the alleged unpop ularity of the Holland tax law, Gover nor Allen explained that there was nat urally much misunderstanding about tho inauguration of a purely American system of taxation based -on property valuations, to take tho place of tho old Spanish system. He said that tho total valuation of property In Porto Rico Is close to $100,000,000, and under the law but ono half of one per ce,nt could be levied for municipal purposes and tho same for insular purposes. Governor Allen said that taxation under tho Holland law Is lower than In any states In this country. Continuing, Governor Allen said: "While somo disturbances havo occur red, tftoy never havo such serious ro- sults as havo often occurred in United Statesbar room brawls. Hooting and howling of crowds on streets, a fow stones thrown and somo rattling sticks along the palings havo been sufficient to, occasion sensational cables to tho north, which though promptly denied, havo been circulated to the discredit of tho teland."

Washington, D. C, Apiil fi. Tho opinion prevails among officials hero that tho excitement reported as exist ing in Japan over the Manchurian question and the talk of an ultimatum are all based on tho statement of af fairs that existed before the delivery of Russia's noto yesterday to Secretary Hay.

No doubt Is entertained hero that tho secret treaty is no longer to bo feared and already attention Is being directed to tho next step.
