THE MAUI NFAVS, SATURDAY, JUNK 7, 1913.
In opposing free sugar in the
Senate recently, Senator Newlands
made frequent inentiori of Hawaii
Ilia view of the situation is as fol
lows: "How does this question involve
the United States? First, it involves
the fact that the sugar industry in
Louisiana would he ahsolutely des
troyed hy free sugar. Second, it
involves the question of a serious
crippling of the beet-sugar industry
in the west, and its possible destruc
tion. Third, it involves the ques
tion of the production of sugar in
Hawaii, in the Philippine Islands
and in Porio Rico, in all of which
the production has been largely
stimulated hy the admission of
those countries within our tariff
wall so much so that the produc
tion of Porto Rico has increased
from about 100, U00 tons annually
to 500,000 tons; the production of
Hawaii has increased from about
200,000 to about 500,000 tons; and
the product of the Philippine Isl
ands from about 50,000 t. 200,000
tons; and since the Spanish War
the production of Cuba, favored by
a small reduction in our tariff duty
of only 20 per cent, has increased
from about 500,000 to 2,300,000
FIGURES FOR HAWAII.
"We acquired Hawaii as a part
of our country just before the
Spanish-American war. Her pur
pose in annexation was to get inside
of our tariff wall and relieve herself
of the payment of a duty. In do
ing that she gained the advantage
of adding to her price our tariff
duty, but she suffered the disadvan
tage of coming under our industrial
system, which meant higher wage
cost and a higher supply cost.
She also had the disadvantage of
absolutely surrendering to the gov
ernment of the Uuited States the
customs duties which she had been
accustomed to collect, so that they
form today a part of the national
revenue and no part of the revenue
"During this time the production
of Hawaii has been stimulated by
the enhanced price which she has
been able to get for her sugar. She
not only availed herself of the or
dinary production, but of stimulated
production through irrigation, at
an immense cost, and today she has
a production of 500,000 tons an
nually, as against a previous pro
duction of 200,000 or 300,000 tons.
Now, take down the tariff wall ; put
her upon an even basis with the
island of Cuba the Hawaiian Isl
ands, 2,500 miles away from our
Pacific Coast and G.000 miles away
from the very center of our popula
tion, and Cuba at our very doors;
the Hawaiian Islands, with a
stimulated production, a costly, in
tensive, production produced by irri
gation, an expensive wage system,
and increased cost system for its
supplies, because it is within our
protective tariff wall and compelled
to pay protective prices for every
thing that she buys; deprived of
the opportunity to get its labor in
the nwrkets of the world, deprived
of the opportunity of getting it3
supplies in the markets of the world,
with a natural production inferior
to that of Cuba, enjoying not the
same advantages either of soil or of
climate, and what will become of
the Hawaiian Islands production
when relieved of the necessity of
paying "s cents upon its products,
increases its annual production
500,000 tons more? What will
then become of the Hawaiian Isl
ands? To what industry can those
islands turn? They have tried
coffee and failed; they have stimu
lated the production of pineapples,
and they get a small revenue from
that industry; but can you point
out any other production that the
Hawaiian Island are capable of ?
There is Cuba, with a richer soil, a
better climate, a lower wage cost, a
lower supply cost, and a lower
freight cost, at the very door of the
center of population of this country.
VICTORY FOR SUGAR TRUHT
"Then recollect that the Hawaiian
Islands will be less fortunate through
annexation than by reason of a
separate existence, for the very
revenues of the custom house that
used to be in the possession of the
islands themselves are now turned
over to the federal treasury. They
used to be able to go to China for
their laborers. They are now pre
vented from doing so by our restric
tive laws. They used to go to
Japan for their laborers. Our gov
ernment, when it made its treaty
with Japan, exacted the stipulation
from the Japanese government that
it would restrict the immigration of
its people to our territory.
"Where will Hawaii look for the
cheaper labor, which she will have
to'j' secure in order to compete with
Cuba Cuba, which has access to
the markets of the world for its
labor; Cuba, which has access to
the markets of the world for its
supplies; Cuba, having the advan
tage of its own revenue and customs
duties to apply to its own develop
ment, and Hawaii deprived of them?
"So we will have precipitated
upon us the economic distress of
the Hawaiian Islands, of Porto
Rico, and of the Philippine Islands
just as soon as we declare that no
duties whatever shall be imposed
upon foreign imports of sugar, that
the duty now paid upon sugar by
Cuban producers shall be taken
away, and that Cuban sugar shall
have th$ absolute control of our
markets; and we can then have the
comforting assurance that the
American Sugar Trust against
which so much of our legislation
and litigation has been directed, is
again triumphant, for it and its
stockholders, now owning the most
prosperous sugar plantations of
Cuba and bound to acquire more,
will not only refine but will also
produce almost all the sugar con
sumed in the United States."

PUT KNELLS ON THE FREE LIST.
The friends of the new tariff
show figures to prove that it will
reduce chloroform eight cents a
pound and stained glass windows
will be lowered (most of them
swing, really) 15 per cent. That
puts Oslerism within the reach of
WHAT EVERY TOMCAT KNOWS.
"The possibilities of a boy, "says
William J. Bryan, "are beyond the
power of language to describe or
measure." Particularly when he
is armed with a first-class slung
shot or a new airgun.
YOUNG MEN AFRAID OF THE TARIFF.
The Democratic committee that
is at work on the 1916 campaign is
as careful, conservative and cau
tious as a man who, before going
out on stilts, makes an excuse for
falling off them.
THE HIGH COST OF HOCKING.
When Mr. Carnegie goes to Ger
many to congratulate the Kaiser on
twenty-five years of peace he
might drop in for a chat with Ilerr
Donnennark, who has just been
obliged to kick in a tax of $2,500
000 to the Imperial war chest.
THIS IS ONLY A FILLER.
It would have been more appro

once were in style.

The plate glass of the Maui Day
Goods & Grocery Co.'s new store
is being put in place this week,
and the interior work is practically
finished hy the contractor. De
livery of the building to the owners
will probably take place during the
coming week, although the final
acceptance must be delayed until
the architect arrives from Hono
lulu. Last Sunday, all of the employees
from the various branches of this
firm, were treated to a little luau,
a sort of christening of the store.
At the same time instructions were
given for the opening event on
June 21st. The electric sign will
be swung out within a few days
now, and the side-walk in front of
the store has been completed.
The House flag, as well as a large
American flag arrived by the S. S.
Lurline, and will be hoisted for the
first time on occasion of the com
pany's opening. Next week the
whole force of the store will be
busy preparing their stock of goods
for display. Over 1000 invitations
have been sent out, and the manag
ment of the company desires the
Maui News to announce that while
the invitations are sent out as a
matter of formality, the general
public is invited to the opening
festivities. The invitation is very
neatly gotten up, and speaks well
for the progressive ' spirit with
which the officers and directors of
the firm are imbued.
The natural color finish of the
interior of the store is indeed pleas
ing to the eye, but the front is
certainly the height of the plaster
er's art. The cornice work breaks
the monotony of the front while
the ornamental plastering with the
inscription of the company's name,
gives it a finish equal to the best
in the territory. All of the em
ployees seem to be busy preparing
for the grand occasion, whit? Mr
Garcia, the managing director, has
his hands so full that he regrets
there are only 24 hours to each day,
more especially the days before
