IT remains to be proen whether Hie Tariff has anything to do with
"High Cost of Living" or not. If the change is not made too
abruptly, it may be a good thing and work out to the advantage of
the common people, but, on the other hand, if too radical a change is
made, it niiiv cut up the manufacturing interests of the country to such
an extent that moneyed interests will become frightened which can
lead only to one result: factories bearing the sign, "Closed Indefinitely."
When the Underwood bill governs the Tariff the farmers of this
country are io have no Protection. So far as their products are con
cerned this is to be a Free-Trade country. Manufacturers and artisans
aie to guess for a few weeks where they are at. They will discover that
their trade and wage has not been improved.
Industry is bound to rule this country. While it is divided in poli
tics the theorists have their way. The day comes when platitudes do
not offset the closed factory and the idle worker. When those condi
tions are met the captains of industry will merge the common interests
now at war. The Democrats may have an action in restraint of politi
cal trade. The genius of business will be applied to politics, and 1916
will see such a party as McKinley made the Republican in 1896.
Sixteen years ago a Republican Congress was called upon to enact a
Tariff law to restore the prosperity that had been so successfully dis
pelled by four years of Democratic rule. Prosperity came and has
lasted. Now the Democrats are to have another "try" at Tariff mak
ing. The proof of the pudding is not far away. A Tariff revised down
ward along the lines of the reckless legislation of the Free-Trade major
ity in the Sixty -second Congress is morally certain to dispel prosperity.
Will the new Tariff be any more reasonable, any more intelligent, any
more conservative? There is no reason to expect that it will. But we
must wait and see.
In Massachusetts they voted for Free-Trade, and now they are beg
ging Congressman Gilmore to save them from their folly. As one aptly
puts it, "they started the fire, and now they shrieking to be saved
from the flames." Not only there, but from every section, and in
every industry, the working people are crying to be saved from the
legislation they voted for.
According to reports from Washington, President Wilson and Con
gressman Underwood, of the House Committee on Ways and Means,
favor a "modified reduction" in Tariff duties. They would leave noth
ing of present duties, above an amount necessary for revenue purposes.
At the same time the administration promises that no legitimate busi
ness interests will be injured by contemplated Tariff changes. This
reminds one of the attempted feat of blowing hot and cold from the
same mouth. Experience has taught the people of this country that
any reduction on Tariff duties, below that point that protects American
industries against foreign cheap labor competition, is bound to injure
home industries. The Democratic administration must preserve a
measure of Protection in the Tariff duties, or their promise to injure no
legitimate industries goes for naught. The Democratic platform de
clared any Tariff beyond a revenue basis to be unconstitutional, and
that platform does not say anything about a "modified reduction" of
duties. Those who read the platform correctly naturally assumed that
the Tariff plank thereof meant the abolishing of all protective duties as
unconstitutional. "What (oh, what!) shall the harvest be?"
For Chairman Underwood to ask for the suspension of public opinion
on the Tariff bill until it is presented is asking too much. It is a sub
ject of too much importance.
The Tariff has never been touched without causing severe disturb
ances of a political nature. It may be that way this time and it may
not be that way. We hope that nothing will serve to upset what of
financial and industrial stability we have now before us. JLcfiaifc.
WAILUKU is getting out of the swaddling clothes stage, and
it is about time that the citizens got wise to the fact that other
communities have made a stand for clean living and decent
morals. In the past and, up to the present, affairs of a very doubtful nature
from a moral standpoint have been winked at in this town. We are
no longer a country village, and soon the tourist traffic will be so great
that the outside world will become cognizant of all our doings. The
decent people of the town are getting tired of many things, and the
sooner those responsible for the moral tone of Wailuku get busy, and
shut down hard and fast on glaring instances of immorality and inde
cent living, the better it will be for the whole of Maui. The Maui
N'kws will always stand out for what is right. If, after investigation
by Grind Juries, no true bills are found, then, of course, nothing else
can be done. The time to "clean up" has come however, and within
the next few weeks a campaign will be started to drive the offenders
into a decent way of living or else laud them in jail. This is no idle
boast and the schedule will go through irrespective of whom the pub
lication of proven facts will injure.
When P. W. Rider "cashed in" last Tuesday, a good man passed
away. Rider was the real thing in mission work, sud he did not ape
the automobile or big-bug stunt. He labored in the real vineyard,
where ignorant, vicious men and women surrounded him day and
night. He and his good wife, probably, did more good in the world
than a host of "missionaries" to other parts of the world. Aloha,
Rider old friend. R. I P. Kakaako and all Hawaii mourns you.
It was great luck that the coast of Maui was not debited with another
wreck. The Sewall incident should give skippers a jolt and also
shipping masters who ship any old kind of sailor.
The railroad crossings along the Puuuc-ne-Paia government road
need some attention. Their present condition is a menace to the safe
ty of autoists to say nothing of hack drivers.
