They Grow Angry at Attempt to Pass
Phlllnnlnr Tariff mil I
- ---r-r---- -..
Washington, Feb. 16. The beet
sugar Interests shojved thel- teeth
Saturday during an attempt to pass
the Philippine tariff bill. Senator
Lodge frankly announced that the
Philippine bill could not pass unless
tho tariff of 60 per cent of the pres
ent Dlngley rates was retained on
suger and tobacco. Senator Foraker
objected to this statement very
strongly and indicated a desire to
make the tariff 25 per cent, ns in tho
house bill.
Then it was that Patteri-on and Tel
ler, of Colorado, democrats, announc
ed their unalterable opposition to a
Mil which would take any protection
off of sugar or give the Philippine
Islanders access to the United States
n'arkets. Patterson declared that the
Philippine Islands would supply tho
1,'nlted States with sugar If free trade
was granted to them, and this, h3
said, would destroy the Louisiana and
the beet sugar interests of the West.
Teller seconded him, and It became
evident that any proposition other
than that dictated by the sugar trust
could not go through.
It is apparent that if the bill passes
pny effort to amend It beyond what
the beet sugar interests agreed upon
will prove fatal to It, and the rates
will remain as now 75 per cent on
all articles.
