various articles wlt't the popul-.ttton of
Cuba and Porto Itico, which amount
3,000,000 ot pceplo, Including slures.
An Import from Cuba amounting to
$57,181,497 per ycir Is to be made free
of duty in order that wo may get a ic

With Porto ltlco our import uro'fG,890,

Our govern rui'nt would loso in rurenuo
about $45,000,000, and would put un
end to an industry in Lou slana which
produces In crude sugar und molasses
about $25,000,000 per year, and yould
