TO END CUBAN RECIPROCITY.
Congressman Needham -has
introduced a. bill repealing the
act giving effect to the recipro
city treaty with Cuba and direct
ing the president to give due'
notice of the termination of the
treaty. It will be remembered
that the duration of this treaty
is for five years from its ratifica
tion, with the proviso that it
shall continue thereafter indefi
nitely until oe party or the
other gives notice of its ter
mination. That was an unusual
and improper clause to insert in
such a treaty, for it will require
apparently a majority vote of
both houses of congress and the
approval of the president to put
an end to a treaty which has not
greatly benefitted Cuba, has not
increased American trade to a
degree which in any way com
pensates for the great loss of
revenue to the treasury, has
seriously injured the prospects
of the beet-sugar industry,
strengthened the hold of the
sugar trust both in this country
and Cuba, and finally, and worst
of all, has led to the retaliatory
action by Germany, of which we
cannot complain, but which may
result in a tariff war injurious to
both countries. Experience has
also proved that the notion o
mawkish sentimentalists that in
some way it would "bind" Cuba
to us, and endow its mixed popu
lation with gratitude and love
for this glorious republic has no
foundation whatever. The Cu
bans do not like us and never
will like us. The treaty which
they have negotiated with Great
Britain shows that they have no
wish to encourage our merchant
marine, .and would gladly give 'o
the British even- the naval ad
vantages which by treaty are ex
clusively ours. The bill putting
the Cuban treaty into effect
should never have passed- The
treaty must be ended so soon as
its terms permit it to be ended

wuru comes irom various
Eastern Oregon points of the in
creasing strength of Dr. Withy
combe's caudidacy for the office
ot governor. About the Eastern
Oregon experiment station, which
has been a project very dear to
Dr. Vvithycombe's thought,
comes the friendliest expression
and recognition of his large part
in the development of Oregon.
Dr. Withycombe is a plain,
earnest man, of well-traiued
mind familiar with affairs, ready
in expression and action, alto
gether to be depended upon in
routine and emergency matters.
That this candidate does not
court the attention of the flat
terer and avoids the well-known
hot-air routes familiar to many
politicians seems to add strength
to h-.s position which is that of a
straight miprefixed republican.
