The Refiners and Free Sugar. v
THE testimony of an official of the Federal Sugar Refining Com
pany of New York, given before the Senate Finance Committee!
develops very clearly the single argument for free sugar sche
The sugar trist wants free sugar.
The witness admitted that the company which he represented "was
paying for the free sugar propaganda and was a leading advocate of
The witness also "agreed with the Republican members that enact
ment of the bill would wipe out the entire domestic production of
This was an expert witness whose words are entitled to the highest
degree of consideration, and, fron the position he occupies, it is not
likely that he forced his way irlv "he committee room and gave this
testimony in spite of the protests of the committeemen.
Is there any one so simple as to believe that any consumer of sugar
using the term in its ultimate sense is embarrassed by the present
price of sugar, or would be perceptibly benefited by a reduction in the
present price of sugar, or who gives the subject any consideration from
the viewpoint of the present price of sugar, or who, merely as a con
sumer of sugar, lifts his finger to obtain a free sugar schedule?
Consumers, merely as consumers, are not even interested in the sub
ject. It is the producers, the refiners and the marketers of sugar who
have exerted influence on this subject one way or the other. In this
connection arises the question of who should be permitted to exert the
determining influence the thousands of American farmers producing
sugar beets or the sugar trust refining imported cane sugar?
The official of the Federal Sugar Refining Company having shown
where the sugar trust stands on this subject, it will not be very difficult
to demonstrate that the entire country, minus the trust, stands on the
Last Monday evening about '
o'clock, an old Portuguese Joe Fer
nandez, living in Kula bid his wife
goodbye and left the house. Ilia
wife thought nothing of it, ns shr
thought he wns going to visit his
grandchildren, but since that time
nothing has been seen or heard of
him. The sheriff was. notified on
Wednesday, and he has been
searching with a posse of men ever
since. Fernandez is about 90 years
old, but very active for his age, and
it is thought he may have wandered
far. His wife, to whom he has been
married about ten years, is only
Some of the newspapers both on the mainland and in the islands
here which have been so set against Roosevelt in his endeavor to secure
the nomination by the republican convention, for president, are begin
ning to pull in their horns. The more tin can abuse they have hurled
at him, the more they will have to hedge. Everyone has a right to
their preference for a presidential candidate, but we Question the right
of some of embryo editors hurling all the invective at their command
at a candidate, as has been the case in many instances here, because
Roosevelt dared come out and seek the nomination, especially when
they would not dare open their mouths if they stood face to face with
him in the open. Taft, himself does not wish this kind of a campaign;
but then Taft is a big man, while some of his faithful newspaper writers
are so small they could pass through the eye of a needle without the
least discomfort either physically or mentally.
The fruit fly has infested Maui, and the worst of it is it probably
has been here for a long time. Sheriff Crowell is going about the work
of extermination in a businesslike manner, however. Sheriff Jarrett of
Honolulu is enthusiastic over Crowell's methods, and says if he is left
alone, he will surely keep the pest under control.
Roosevelt is coming along with a burst of speed which is typical of
the man. If he succeeds in getting within striking distance of Taft
before the convention actually starts to ballot. Well, it'won't be very
hard to guess who'll be the next president.
What kind of a celebration are we going to have when the ectric
juice is turned on. Surely we can stop long enough to take more than
passing notice of this great municipal improvement.
The Maui Publishing Co., has just received direct from the coast the
most complete line of up-to-date stationery ever shown on Maui.
By E. L. Wilcox in the Crossroads.
HIGH on the shore of time's sea,
A human wreck was cast in gasping fear.
Not blindly had he sailed his course, nor drunk
With overweening pride of strength or skill.
He knew the hissing.pantiug waters' surge.
The rocks and shoals were listed on his chart.
But all the senseless agencies of fate
Had laughed and mocked his plans to nothingness.
Then came a motley crowd to view the scene.
One bloodless parody of man complained
Because the wreck was left before his eyes.
One read a sermon on the fear of hell.
Another neighbor, blessed with bulging purse,
All soft and oily with the fat of earth,
With gesture shrewdly timed to bring applause,
Tossed him a coin and knew his duty done.
But one there was who paused and sadly gazed.
A man, a merely human man was this.
No golden treasures jangled in his purse.
No store of cold advice was in his heart.
He grasped the stranger firmly by the arm,
And led him far away from curious eyes.
He'd stumbled, fallen, risen, walked again,
Lost, won and suffered, and could understand.
Graham and his trained rata will
be at the Paia Orphcuin tonight.
This is a great show. Graham is
very entertaining himself and be
has conveyed to the rats the art of
entertaining also. This is probably
the only troup of trained rats in
existence, and Mr. Graham says
the work of training the littie
rodents has become a genuine pleas
ure. While out one night recently
with a party of friends Mr. Graham
made a sudden dash along the
street. He had seen a rare epeci
men of rat, and had endeavored to
get a closer view. He has. become
a genuine connoiseur on rats, and
he gives a ?ood show.
