They believe that even If f.ome should be produced on an Amer- ican Industry the situation Is so grave In Cuba and tho duty of the United States so manifest, .that the tarlft Hhould be reduced In spite of a possi- ble loss to the American sugar grow- ers.

The Senators and others who have nonsuited with the president have taken firm ground In tlils regard. They nro convinced that the crisis in Cuba is acute, and that If the United States falls to come to the relief of a rooplo over whom this country by r.ct of congress has established a pro.- tpctorato tho civilized world would denounce America and hold It respon- sible for the starvation In Cuba which U almost certain to follow unless there is some relief to the present iuft the pleasure of searching out less Important, but just as interesting p'acos until a later day.
