OUR EXPORTS TO CUBft. Have Reduced One Half Since Repeal of Reciprocity.

WASHINGTON, Deo. 28.— The govern' tnent of Spain, in an earnest desire to evBc(o the threatened tariff war between Cuba and the United States, has under serious and favorable consideration the cessation to Cuba of the privilege of ar- tanging her own revenue' budget, including tariffs with the United States. This Cuban budget is to be subject to the approval of Spain. The negotiations now progressing at Madrid aro partly on , these lines, but the state department authorities are proceeding nevertheless with their retaliatory ; plans, as they do not believe Spain's concessions to Cuba . can be carried out aud made bonefici al to Us for some months to come. The eignificimoo of tho mutter in its commercial and political aspects is fully realized. It is said that Spain will be careful not to relinquish her sovereignty over the island nor to permit this to become the first step toward Cuban independence. For that reason the contemplated privilege will not include "home rule." The general purpose is to give Cuba advisory powers. Her local officials will take tip the economic necessities of the island, estimate the needed revenue > from tariff duties and advise the Spanish government oiHJuties that should be levied and of other measures which ought to be taken in order to secure th'e best results for the islands. While Spain would thus retain complete sovereignty over Cuba, it is suggested that the home government would as a rule approve Cuba's revenue budget with the United States. In the present contention between Spain and the United States, the Cubans are eolicitipus of retaining their American markets for sugar, and it is , urged for this reason the local officials would undoubtedly advise a lowering of tariff duties with the United States. Spain's approval would follow; almost certainly. Her approval jn reality being largely formality performed in a desire to show her purpose of retaining sovereignty over the island. Kxportlne Home* Want Belief. While it is recognized in official circles here that this change doubtless would be beneficial to the United States, it is feared such extensive changes in the relations between Spain and Cuba cannot be made within a reasonable time and that before the United States can secure a reduction of tariffs, our trade with Cuba and Porto Rico will bo irreparably injured. The great exporting nouses of the Atlantic cities are clamoring at the doors of the state department and threaten to ask congress for some speedy action to protect their business. ' They represent that at present the United States is losing a trade of 700,1)00 barrels of flour per annum, all of our commerce in machinery formerly purchased by the Cuban* exclusively in the United States, all of the hardware and a large proportion of the potato trade, a. very important part of our exports to the West Indies. The total reduction in our exports to Cuba for the year since the lapse of the reciprocity agreement will amount to not less than 60 per cent. kxtent of the niiorlinlimtlon. |l 'The tables prepared by tho exporters •bow tho ox to nt of the discrimination •gainst tho United States product* undor tbe maximum tariff recently imposed by Bpnin, have siitiKtied tho stato department tluit thoro is no opportunity for Americans unless the tariffs are abated. All the arguments of Spain iu <?xt. imu- tion of her action in,iiiQreuHl»£ tlio duties have been bused on thu contention it was mn inevitable consequence of tho repeal of the reciprocity agreement by our tariff act and that this was to exclude the United States front the benefits of the minimum tariff, no mutter what the disposition of the Spanish government may bitve been, in fact that it was tho result of oar own act. But at tho stato department it is held that thu ruoiprooU ty agreement has nothing to do with tho cage and that tho president has no discretion under thu law, but must ruiiu- POM the discriminating flag duties as •oon as he is satisfied the Spanish government is discriminating agoiuat our com- awrue, _ Ourlliltt Will Iti'deem Dnniiii.

Mew Currency Finn Alleged to BiAre Cnnsed Timid Holders to Sell. NEW YORK, Dec. US.—The United States government bond syndicate has dissolved-after disposing of 1)5 per cent of the issue. The remaining 05 per cent has been divided among the members. The new currency plan, it is alleged, has influenced liquidation by holders of government bond*, which has been the cause of timid holders disposing of their bonds and which caused the decline below the syndicate price. ( The new issue is now quoted at l.)7>£ to 118. WASHINGTON, Dec. S8.—Secretary Carlisle had nothing to say in regard to the published statement to the effect that the new currency plan, it was thought, was responsible for the decline of the price of the new issue of bonds to a point below the syndicate price. Assistant Secretary Curtis was of the opinion that the psnding currency bill had little, if anything, to do with the matter. The fact that some of the small holders bad liquidated their bonds, be regarded as not significant. In many cases these liquidations, he thought, were for the purpose .of raising money with which to meet obligations falling due on Jan. 1. In*Mr. ^Curtis'opinion there was no significance in the* reported fact that the syndicate had said only aft per cent of their holdings. It was his understanding that many of the large holders, particularly trust and insurance companies, had purchased the bends with a view ol holding them permanently as a security or reserve. The bonds, with accrued interest, should now be worth approximately 117.51ft on tjho basis of the purchase price. KHccHon linn Another Accident.
