THE CUBAN QUESTION
Intimately Mixed Up With the
Tariff Tax on Sugar.
EN0ELI0U3 PEOIITS OF THE TRUST
rlie SiiKar Duties Intended ns a Sub
liily to Grower Virtually a
'ft' SulHliy o n -lrniit Tne Turin
Kcrila IlevUiou to l'rotcvt the Amer
ican Consumer. ,
Tlio sugar trust already has a soft
gimp, and if we annex Cuba it will
plunder the people of more millions
tlm cm-rod liirlff la rovlMiwl. Tho
'y' trust soils Its rcllned sugar on the
basis of the cost of the raw sugar
aud the tariff duty and prollt added.
It liuys most of the raw sugar from
Cuba and ou that pays the tariff duty,
less a discount of 20 per cent, of which
discount the trust gets at lenst oue
balf. T'ie sugar from the Hiiilpplucs
imported Into the United States Is al
lowed a discount ou the tariff duty of
20 per cent, aud of this the trust gets
nearly all. The sugar Imported from
Hawaii comes in free of duty, so that
auy Hawaiian sugar the trust buys It
pays no duty upon. Of course the price
of sugnr iu Cuba aud the Philippines Is
somewhat Increased by the discount on
the tariff duty, or, as In the case of Ha
waii aud Porto Klco, by being admitted
free of duty, there Is a subsidy amount
ing to what the duty would be, to bo
divided between the sugar grower and
the sugar trust.
The price of sugar lu the United
States is fixed by the trust at Just a
little less than foreign refined sugar
can be Imported for after paying
1 15-100 cents per pound, which Is the
tariff only on refined sugar. The tariff
ou raw sugar ranges from 05-100 of a
cent a pound up to 1 85-100 cents a
pound, according to quality, though
when it Is pure enough to be assessed
at the higher duty It Is ranked as re
fined sugar, and the duty Is 105-100
cents a pound. This difference In the
tariff duty between refined sugar and
enough raw sugar to produce the same
amount of refined sugar Is the "dif
ferential" in the tariff duty In favor of
the trust. But the important matter to
remember Is that as long as any sugar
is taxed by the tariff all the sugar that
is imported free of duty and the sugar
that is Imported at a discount on the
tariff duty are paid for by the people at
the same price as if it was refined
sugar Upon which the full duty had
been paid. The domestic cane sugar
grown In Louisiana and the beet sugar
produced In several states are all sold
at the highest price, so that virtually
tho tariff duty Is a subsidy to the pro
ducers. If all the sugar that can be grown In
Cuba should be admitted free of duty
and yet the tariff was maintained, the
price of sugar would still be as high to
the American consumer as if the gov
ernment received the tariff tax on the
same, which In round numbers
amounts to $50,000,000 a year. So
there Is an economic problem for the
people of the United States to settle
la considering the question of tho an
nexuUon of Cuba entirely apart from
the question of whether Cuba shall b
free. If the revenue now produced by
the tariff tax on sugar Is reduced or
abolished, there will have to be some
thing else taxed to make up for th
loss of revenue from sugar.

Hepubliran Apathy the Democrat!
The Republican managers of the con
gressional elections are whistling to
keep up the courage of themselves and
their followers; but, like the boy pass
ing through the graveyard nt dusk, thej
are really "scured to death." They
don't know what Is going to happen,
for so many Republican voters are
breaking away from their political
moorings that nil the Information that
comes to headquarters is replete with
forebodings of defeat. The old Repub
lican machine workers are not enthu
siastic in the cause, for they do not
see much benefit from success, except
those who are holding down federal
offices, and they, of course, are cnthu
siastlcally putting in their time at poll
tics Instead of attending to business.
The late conference at the White
House of the Republican leaders wai
gloomy, although it was given out thai
victory was certain. But the Repub
lican brethren Bhould cheer up. Th
tariff protected trusts are putting mon
ey Into the close congressional dlstrlcti
to save the stand pat congressional
candidates, and matters may not be ai
desperate ns the new amateur man
agers are scared Into believing thej
Democrats everywhere should taku
advantage of the Republican apathy
and by personally urging all Democrat!
to tote victory is assured. There ar
always enough stay at home voters t
change the result lu close districts, and
the whole Democratic problem Is to
got these laggard voters to the polls.
Republican Politic. In Delaware.
If you don't believe that some good
way come even out of Nazareth, re
member that Gas Addlcks and the ne
groes of Delaware have Just put an
end to the political career of the noto
rious Senator Allee. Some years ago
rresident Roosevelt. In plain violation
of the civil service law, expelled from
office an efficient and worthy postmis
tress "because she was personally of
fensive to Senator Alice." W1H he now
torn Addlcks and the negroes out of
the Republican party because they
have become offensive to Allee? It is
sad when even Addlcks and the ne
groes rebuke and overthrow the prw
lenfs political favorites.

Shaw Tries to Induce Yoonc Men to
Support Rotten Policies.
As the star Republican spellblndet
Secretary Shaw Is, as Artcmus Ward
would sny, "an nmusin' cuss." The
trouble with Shaw is that his partisan
philosophy Is out of pear and will not
ftnnd the test of application to particu
lar cases. Shaw In a speech at St
Louis said, "I advise young men to
vote for parties and not men, for par
tics stand for principles and men do
not always do so." Rut f the party Is
corrupt and Its principles rotten what
Is tho young man to do then? And ns
unfortunately the Republican machine
politicians in St. Louis and nearly ev
erywhere else are under a cloud and
Republican reformer. are declaring
that Republican politicians are rotten
to tho core and lu many states have
proved that contention what would
Shaw advise his young Republican
friends to do under such circum
stances? Does ho advise the young Republic
ans of Iowa to vote the whole Repub
lican ticket or would he say If his ad
vice could be tendered privately,
"Vote the Republican ticket, but
All the corrupt rings advise the
young voters to support the whole tick
et and pay no attention to the charac
ter or corrupt doings of the leaders oc
The Republican party In Philadelphia
and Pennsylvania, In New Jersey,' In
Now Hampshire, In New York aud
other states will forever be wallowing
la the mire of Penroseism, of Dryden
corruption, of Oalllnger and Boston
arid Maine railroad domination and of
most disreputable machine politics in
the Empire State If Shaw's advice
were followed. The Republican party
has conic to a sorry plight even with
the utmost that the reformers In Its
ranks can do, but when Its young and
enthusiastic voters are advised to shut
their eyes and vote blindly for all the
rascals and stand pat policies and all
the foolish old schemers of the Shaw
typo who are labeled Republican no
wonder the youug men balk. Shaw's
advice would not only make the party
a stench In the nostrils of decent peo
ple, but a political cadaver that every
one would be anxious to bury.
The Democracy is different from Re
publicanism. The independence of the
young Democrat and his attraction to
the honest and able leaders of the
parly have been and will forever be
the salvation of the party of tho peo
ple. The Independence of Democrats
makes platforms that will stand pop
ular approval and candidates that will
bear the Investigation that is the solo
safeguard of the voters. The Democ
racy Invites the young voter to study
the former aud present policies of the
party, to probe the character of Its
candidates and aid in the nomination
of able and honest ones and vote ac
cordingly. STRAIN UPON VIRTUE.
Contaminating Influences That Sur
ronuil the President.
The remedy of President Uadley of
Yale for the political and other ras
calities of the present day Is to ostra
cise the eminent perpetrators. Presi
dent Roosevelt evidently believes In
the old plan of consorting with the
sinners and thus engendering iu them
perhaps fruits meet for repeutauce. Or
is It the exigencies of the O. O. P.
that require the president to Invite
Ross Penrose to Oyster Bay to consult
about haw to beat the Lincoln Repub
lican reformers, aud Congressman Llt
tauer, who escaped prosecution for the
army glove contract frauds by virtue
of the statute of limitations, on the
factional tight In New York; and Cor
telyou, chairman of the Republican na
tional committee, who was receiver of
the stolen funds from the policy hold
ers of the life iusurance companies and
who used the money to debauch the
voters iu the doubtful states, whose
aid lu again raising a campaign fund
Is na doubt considered Indispensable;
and Paul Morton, the self convicted re
bater who was too warm a proposition
to keep iu the cabinet, but his advice
about railroad and Insurance contribu
tions may be necessary.
Perhaps constant association with
the president will do more for these
sinners than to ostracise them on the
Uadley plan, but the question is. Can
the great virtues of President Roose
velt forever withstand these and like
contaminating Influences? To consort
all the winter with Republican con
gressmen would make most of us
quake, but that strain upon virtue, to
be followed during the recess by the
contaminating Influences described,
would be too much for most patriots.
Protection and Idleness.
The window glass manufacturers are
loaded, according to the New York
Journal of Commerce, "with 2,000,000
boxes of glass, a third of a year's sup
ply, which they have decided to work
off at the present market prices before
opening up the factories again." The
men have been Idle almost a year and
want to work. This shows that ultra
r otectionlsm does not protect even the
workers In this tariff protected In
dustry, and every one has to pay dou
ble price for glass because the tariff
prevents competition and thus keeps
the price unreasonable. The workmen
are Idle more than half the time under
this system and yet the Republicans
