Porto Rico Sugar Crop The Porto Rican sugar crop now coming off is estimated at 20,000 tons less than that of last year. Mr. Soler, the Porto Rican statistician, has made a detailed estimate of the whole crop as far as results are now determinable and gives the figures for the two years for each of the leading sugar factories.
