IT "WAS a deploinble mlsfoi lune
that the Cuban lccipiocity bill
was defeated by a gioup of sen

their constituents. The btate.s In which
the piodtiLtlon of beet .sugar Is an

that it should not be endangeied by

majotlty of these seintois hue now
dlscoveied the cltl.ens of these Mates,
which they weie so solicitous to cone III
ato by lefusing a modeiate letlpuual
concession to Cuba for hpr chief and
nlmost sole indiistty, could place their
piinclples befoie their pockets anil
concede to national expediency the
piospect of Individual gain. Ptesldent

hardly blame the Cubans If they do
not accept tho effei vescence of our
good intentions in speeches and news

they htihen In any way tn conceal It.
The Cuban government has ptepaud it

inent to tho tieuly by which the teims
