Protection nnd Wo publish elsewhere in this issue a coinmu
Productlon nication from the city of Los Anpeles, Califor
nia, showing how strongly the people of the great state of Califor
nia feel on the tariff question, and their watchword is to buy and
boost home products. At the last election that father of American
constructive polices, the Republican Party, swept the country on
the tariff revision issue, and it soetns the wealthy Eistern manufac
turers construe it to mean free entry of the raw article needed by
their factories and a protective tariff on the finished product, free
entry for raw hides and a protective tariff on shoes, and so on
down the whole scale of dutible raw articles" We find the Spree
kels interests are clamoring for free raw sugar with a protective
tariff on refined sugar. Since the production of cane sugars and
beet sugars in the United States have largely increased under the
McKinley and Dingley tariffs a continuance of the same benefici
ent policy would in time force the production of sugars to a point
where home production would supply the home demand for sugar.
We fail to see any good reason why our sugar industry should
be secrificed to fatten the Spreckels infant sugar trust. We are
for protection and Joe Cannon is our prophet.
The Federal Honolulu seems unduly excited over the fact that
Building Site the Federal authorities in Washington have de
cided in favor of the Irwin site as against the Mahuka site for the
proposed Federal office building.
We Maui residents do not take so much interest in the exact lo
cation of said building. The fact that the authorities want to change
the location to a spot two blocks removed from where a majority
of the Honolulu business people want it is to us Maui residents a
From a higher point of view opposed to that of mere utility and
passing convenience, and for beautifying the capital city the Irwin
site gets our vote.
We commend the people of Honolulu for their show of spirit even
though -we feel they are acting unwisely. This Territory wants a
Federal building and if the present attitude of the people of Hono
lulu is going to tie up and postpone the construction of the same
indefinitely, what's the good? Give over the dog in the manger
policy and let us all accept the gocds the gods give us.
