At the time when tobacco agriculture was par
alyzed in Cuba, Bondy & Lederer of New York were in
duced to experiment with transplanted tobacco sprouts
(not seed growths, but best young Vuelta plants), in por
tions of Florida and Louisiana and Texas, where the land elevation and dis
tance from salt water was right. Sea mists turned into a heated moisture
by. a tropical sun, daily alternating this steamed hot-house-like moisture with the dead heat
which dries it up before each sunset, are the necessary atmospheric conditions. A soil made loamy with a rich decayed vegetation
developed and rotted for ages in alternating mist and heat is the necessary kind of soil. With soil exactly the same, land eleva
tion similar, and action of the sun and the sea air Just right all that was necessary was the introduction of the plant exactly
as it was introduced and multiplied In Cuba's Yuelta abajos district half a century ago. The result of growing perfect Vueita
tobacco on American soil could not fall and it has been even more than a complete success, for the new soil has yielded admittedly finer results than the old soil
sapped so long. With these growths Bondy & Lederer escaped the enormous import duties and have been able to use this class of filler for the first time ever known in

RUSSIAN LAW - ON . TRUSTS
Clrealar Which Has Caeted go Mack
Talk Throesboat Europe Re
ceived at Wasalagrton.
WASHINGTON. July J5. Through the
United States charge of embassy at St.
Petersburg, Mr. . Riddle, the State depart
ment has Just received copy of the Rus
sian law touching upon trusts, which has
excited so much comment In Europe. This
note, which takes the form of a circular,
was Identical and waC handed in St. Pe
tersburg to . the representative of all of
the powers that participated in the Brus
sels sugar conference, and. In addition, to
Mr. Riddle for transmission to his govern
ment at Washington.
Juat why this was done In view of the
fact that the United States government was
not represented at the Brussels conference
can only be conjectured, and it Is supposed
that it was supplied as a matter of Infor
mation and as a cour'esy. Certain it Is
that In the present view the United 8tates
executive cannot participate In such a con
ference as It deecrlbed, because of consti
tutional limitations that cannot be escaped,
even If there were -no other objections.
From a perusal of toe note, which Is In
official print, It appears that its references
to trust, which are rather Incidental and
alternative in character, have attracted the
principal share of public attention, al
though tho whole note appears to be
framed as an argument In support of tbe
Russian system of regulating sugar pro
duction and export. '
The reference to an International trust
conference Is actually the question pre
sented In tbe shaps of an alternative pro
posal, or rather suggestion, only in case
the . soundness of the Russian contention
in euppert of its present system Is suc
Tbe State department cannot do more
at this stage than It baa done, namely,
return a polite acknowledgment through
Mr. Riddle of the note and watch develop
ments in Europe. It Is not supposed that
there will be at once any action toward
railing any 'congress, but rather the dis
cussion as to the character of tbe Russian
sr.t.em of regulation ' of sugar production
will proceed, certainly up to the date set
for tbe application of the sugar agreement
reached at Brussels for the stoppage of
sugar bounties and, the exclusion from im
portation of bounty-aided sugar. That ac
tion will, it Is expected, precipitate some
decision upon the Russian proposals.

Each day brlnga the agricultural products
of the 'nation nearer maturity and as the
possibility of any serious Injury becomes
smaller the feeling of confidence In fully
sustained trade grows stronger. Railway
stocks rose to new high record quotations
and gold was exported, yet money ruled
easy. July oats aucceeded corn as the lead
ing speculative cereal, but all distant grain
options tended lower as the outlook Lim
proved. The heavy distribution of mer
chandise Is shown by railway earnings thus
far reported for July being 23 per .cent
larger than last year and 20 per cent in
excess of the corresponding period of 1900.
Insufficient fuel is the one serious diffi
culty In the Iron and steel Industry Inter
ruptions and delays from thia cause becom

coal are curtailed by the strike, although
coke ovens are Inaklng new records of pro
duction. Shipments are retarded by the
car and motive power shortage. In a
market where there Is comparative dullness
because deliveries cannot be made promptly
the outlook for long continued activity
seems favorable, especially as the scarcity
of fuel cannot continue a factor indefinitely.
