Secretary Wilson of th e agricultural department has returned to the city from a week's visit to Florida, where ho went at the suggestion of the pr« indent to study the productions of that country. In an in terview concerning his observations there the secretary spoke as follows: "Tho most st'rikiug development I found Florida was the growth of tho tobacco interest. Within the last few years. 40,0»A Cubans have come over from their native country, many of whom had been life long tobacco grow ers, curers and ugarmakers, who un derstand the art lroin the planting of the feed to the marketing of the cigar. The Cubans rccognize tho hummock lands of Florida as being very similar to that of t!ie best tobacc land in Cuba. The American caught onto the business very rapidly. Tne state sta tistics show that the Cubans sold last year cigars and the sale of tobacco in all its form brought Cubans |iy,tX»U,OUJ. The United States still pays Cuba. Sumatra, Mexico and other countries #17,000,000 for tobacco. This the Fioridan is reaching out for. Notwithstanding the people get ir,000, 000 cigars from Florida, scarcely such a thing is to be found ou the market as a Florida cigar. They all cotuo north under the Havana name. I found very much the same condition of atTairs in the North regarding tho Florida cigar as I found in London regarding Amer ican butter. The consumer in London is well satisfied that the American but ter is the finest that ever went oil his table. The Northern epicure after smokiug his cigar will testify very readily that nothing equals his fine Havana. Then if you have evidence to prove that it was grown, cured and manufactured in Florida, you will con vince him, but not otherwise. 1 made efforts to buy a box of Cuban cigars grown, cured and manufactured in Florida, but only in one instance was ablo to do so."

WASHINGTON. Feb. 10. —The resolu tion of Collator Harris relating to the Kansas Pacific railroad has passed the senate. It is as follows: Resolved, That tho attorney general is directed to inform the senate if ho has authorized the abandonment of his expressed intention to redeem the first mortgage bonds issued by the Union Wll IIAM A. Ft Ai RT8. "^V JfAlMSOS, SOUTH DAKOTA. WKDXESKAY, IKIiKl'ARY l«. Pacific Railroad company's Eastern division, now the Kansas Pacific divi sion of the Union Pacific railway, and to ask a postponement of tho sale thereof, and for the appointment of a receiver therefor in the interests of the government of the United States, and also if he has authorized an agreement by which said property is to be sold for the face value of the subsidy bonds, resulting in a loss to the gevernment of the amount of ftl.H24,107. and if the government has agreed not to be a bid der at said sale. Before the resolution was passed Senator Larrismade a few remarks giv ing the history of tho agreement by which tho government obtained full payment for the Union Pacific. "We were all very glad," said Mr. Harris, "that the government received its just due. and nobody has more cor dially congratulated the present admin istration than I upon tho successful ne gotiation of that transaction." It was also hoped, Mr. Harris said, that the government would get full value for the debt due from the Kansas Pacific branch. In case the reorgani zation committee should decline to pay the full amount due, about #13,000,000, it was tho understanding that the gov ernment would redeem the first mort gage bonds aud have the road operated by a receiver. That would show the Value of tho property, which Mr. Har ris believed was quite 1^0,000,000. The reorganization committee, Mr. Harris said, had evidently succeeded in ob- taming from tho attorney general such concessions as had been outlined in press clis]atches and tho government is to stand idly by and seo the enormous sum of #•],700,000 of iuterest sacri ficed. The value of tho property, Mr. Harris thought, was a most important consideration. Tho reorganization committee aud the nion Pacific officials had made an ffort to minimize tho value of the ro.ul. "It is jwrticularly significant," said Mr. Harris, "that tho statement of the reorganization committee and the ortic als of tho Union Pacific re garding the value of the main line have been proved by subsequent eveuts to be untrue." Messrs. Gear ntid Foraker defended tho administration, after which the resolution was passed. To Consider tti« Loud llill.
