Fremont dispatch: An agent of tho
German Chicory company of O'Neill
has been in town the past few days
making contracts with farmers to raise
chicory for Its factory. It has met with
success and has already 350 acres in
sight. The company nprees to furnish
seed for 50 cents a pound, to be taken
from the first shipment or be paid in
cash. It will pay S10.50 a ton for tlie
roots deli veicd on the cars at O'Neill.
The contract also contains a provision
similar to that in tho contracts of the
Norfolk sugar Hect company, that If
tlie state bounty is not paid then the
farmer is to receive 80 per ton at the'
factory instead of SI0. Tlie roots arc
not required to meet any test us to
quality, but are paid for wholly by
weight They are to be free from earth
and well topped. A few acres were
raised in this vicinity last season with
satisfactory results, although tho cost
of digging them was larger than was
anticipated. Tlie roots wero so long
that no machine would work satisfac

Washington, March 5. Tho Presi
dent and his Cabinet nre undoubtedly
opposed to tho present recognition of
belligerency of the Cuban insurgents
n:id to any declaration concerning
their independence us embodied in re
cent Congrcssiounl resolutions. Tho
following Is not nn ofllcial statement,
but It Is known from careful inquiry
that it accurately represents the ad
ministration's views iu the matter.
While the President and members of
the Cabinet personally feel the sym
pathy common to all Americans with
these Cubans who arc contending for
self-government, they feel that in
their oflicuil action they should not de
part f 1 our the well-settled principles
which were followed by former Presi
dents and Secretaries of Stato during
prior Insurrections in Cuba. These
were clearly ct forth by General
tirant in his message of 1S75, in which
lie dealt with the question of the rec
ognition of Cuban independence and
also with that of tho iceognttion of
lloth independence and belligerency
are facts, nnd their recognition by
other powers, as the term implies, U
merely .formal acknowledgment of a
state of things which, rightly or
wrongly, has come about.
hen a people, united under some
known and defined form of govern
ment, which administers its functions
by the usunl methods, come to occupy
and control 11 known territory over
which it is competent to administer
justice and within which it affords
protection to citizens and strangers, n
new state exists. Refusal of recogni
tion would not change the fact, any
mote than premature "recognition"
could create It. The former would be
merely a slight to the new govern
ment.'just as the latter is merely an
affront to the old one, Tho question
necessarily is always what govern

Recognition of belligerency depends
upon tlie same facts, and is only u
moditied form of recognizing inde
pendence, though tlie latter implies
more perfect accomplishments.
Tlie pretension of recognizing what
does not exist "is always, and justly,
regarded us an unfriendly act, and a
gratuitous demonstration of moral
support to the rebellion."
It is understood that, judged by
these tests, the administration does
not think the present state of affairs
in Cuba justifies any change In the at
