January 10.—As indi

the negotiations between the State De

looking to the restoration of the tariff on
American products entering Cuba and
Porto Rico have reached a satisfactory
conclusion. It is true that some minor
details remain to be adjusted, but little
difficulty is expected in securing their
settlement. It appears that in conced
ing to tiie United Stales the lienefits of
the minimum tariff Spain lias also se
cured a substantial advantage. Her
West Indian colonies ordinarily supply
the United States with about 75 percent
of the sugar imported into the country.
Thus the sugar is liable to a duty of one-
tenth of 1 cent per pound over ami above
the 40 per cent duty imposed on Cuban
sugar, and in consequence the Cuban
planters practically receive a portion
equal to the discriminating duty paid
by European sugars, and, it is believed,
will thus be able to control the market
of the greatest sugar consuming country
on the globe.
