IF President Wilson has his way he will compel the Democrats to
enact a real Democratic Tariff law. lie will hold his party to its
platform declaration to a Tariff for revenue only. On that plat
form he was elected President. On that platform the Democratic con
gressmen were elected, and to that platform every Democratic senator
is committed. This being true why should any one expect a Protec
tive Tariff law from the present Congress?
The bill to be enacted will doubtless leave some articles Protected in
order that revenue may be derived from a Tariff tax, but it will cer
tainly subject to foreign competition practically everything produced by
American farmers, and many of the products of American manufac
turers. Otherwise it will not be a Democratic Tariff measure and can
not be consistently approved by President Wilson.
Democratic party leaders know full well that the farmers of the
Middle West and Western states cannot surrender the Protection they
have heretofore enjoyed without serious loss and consequent displeasure.
These farmers are not apt to remain the political friends of congress
men and senators who may hinder their prosperity. They now know
the value of a Protective Tariff and are not crying for lower Tariff rates
on the products of foreign agriculture; and they know also that un
protected American industries cannot pay high wages to the wage
earners, who, for sixteen years, have been liberal consumers of farm
products. They know that the farmer will "catch it a comin' and
goin " if the proposed Democratic Tariff bill is enacted, because it
will rob the farmer of the Protection afforded against foreign products
and by reducing wages and curtailing the employment of wage earners
it will impair the home market for such products.
DANGER TO PINES.
MR. V. M. GIFFARD'S statement, made before the Maui Cham,
ber of Commerce, to the effect that there was a story going the
rounds that fungus infected pineapples now being raised on
Kauai, originally came from Hawaii, and that the variety of fruit is
known as the "Ililo Pine" is a very serious one. In view of
the fact that many Japanese farmers are said to be contracting for
pineapple plants from the big island, it would be well to run down the
story and see if pineapple plants brought here to our fields are clean.
Thewhite farmers have a hard enough row to hoe, anyhow, without
having to chance ruin through the new pest.
On July Fourth all Maui will be wearing holiday attire, and the
visitors from Honolulu and Ililo should have the time of their young
lives. The Maui people are always the most hospitable and the full
courtesies of the island are always extended to those who pay the
Valley Island a visit. The proposal to have a real parade on the
Fourth is being thought of deeply by some of the business houses.
Such an affair would be a good thing for Maui and would show the rest
of the group that this island is not behind the times. Oahu and Hawaii
are to have celebrations and Maui should have something else besides
the horse races.
President Wilson's declaration that he proposed to remedy all Tariff
evils without disturbing the manufacturer or wage earner, or the busi
ness of the country, may have been sincere enough, but Mr. Wilson
has no practical knowledge of the intricate system involved in creating,
maintaining and successfully conducting those branches of industry
which he proposed to put in competition with other nations. He, like
nearly all others who view from without rather than from within, failed
to realize that in nine-tenths of all our industries, three-fourths of
the total cost of production goes to labor.
Good roads are a blessing always and Maui has much to be thankful
for in that respect. Still, why on earth a certain piece of road about
half a mile or less which stretches from Paia village to the first bridge
on the Puunene side, should be neglected and left without top-dressing,
is the wonder of the people who travel over the road. The stretch is
getting worse every day and the longer the putting off of the necessary
top-dressing is continued, the more the job will cost in the long run.
The lifting of the embargo on the importation of fruit from the other
islands to Maui, is a sensible move. The fruit-fly is so bad on Maui
that it was absurd to try and "keep the pest out." The barring out
of fruits also worked a hardship on many poor people, who desired to
make a little money by selling alligator pears, mangoes and other fruits
from the outside islands.
The deepening of Kahului harbor will do an immense amount of
good, and the fact that it will be finished before the "bad" weather
comes in, is being much appreciated by the people who "go down to
the sea in ships."
Incomes from $4,000 and above will make up the "difference" in
the Tariff revenue. It's a cinch that a million sheep men will not
contribute largely to the new fund.
What about an engine that will pump water onto a fire? Hose and
reel cannot do it all, especially when there is no pressure to speak of.
The wool grower is sentenced to four years of hard labor, with no
chance for a pardon.
There was a "reason" why Gov. Wilson refused to commit himself
on the wool Tariff.
And to add insult to injury the Australians threaten to show their
sheep at 'Frisco.
It doesn't take microscope to discover "the man behind the throne."
Bryau waited sixteen long years to get even with a poor sheep.
