Judge Ballou Thinks
Moral Effect About
For Planters Files
BY C. sTaLBERT. 4
ISprtial Star-Bulletin Correspondent-
WASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. 18. The
hearing given by the House ways and
means committee on the sugar sched
ule of the Payne-Aldrich tariff act
passed with such a rush and hurry
that apparently but little was accom
plished. The information obtained is
presumably to be used in framing a
revision measure The sugar schedule
was combined with, wines and liquors.
Hut little opportunity was given for
oral arguments, Everybody was in
vited to leave a brief.
Judge SldneiJBalJoti appeared be
fore the. ways and means committed
for the Hawaiian sugar interests. He
did not request air time for a verbal
presentation of tacts bv.t took ad van
tage of the permission allowed anc
filed a strong brief. He clearly so
forth the necessity of continued pro
tection for the sugar-producers of Ha
waii. He made it perfectly plain thai
any material reduction in duties
would destroy an Industry that is es
sential to future prosperity in t:u
Throughout the entire hearinp
Judge Ballou was in attendance, close
ly watching the interests of the Ha
waiian, He carce early and remained
on the job until the day's work was
In the opinion of Judge Ballou. th
only Important benefit to result fron
the hearings will be the moral effcel
that is likely to fojlow when the act
tial work of framing a sugar-revisior
measure Is taken up. He thinks
possible that then the arguments ad
vanced against1 radical modificatior
will bear fruit and prevent anything
like ruinous slashing.
In any event, the Judge feels sure
the senate will never consent to :
proposition approximating free sugai
or any reduction in duties below tlx
figures contained in the Bristow sub
Rtitute Adopted at the last session of
Congress. He regards the sentinieni
prevailing in the senate as opposed U
any lowering of sugar rates beyond r
point where the product can be made
at a reasonable profit.
The beet-sugar producers and the
cane-growers of Louisiana were alsr
well represented at the hearings.
