HELD FOR LOWER TARIFF.
RKPRKSKNTATI VKS in Congress propose to make a fight for an
amendment to the Tariff lill providing that all impoits stored
in bond shall be made dutiable under the Tariff law in existence
at the time of entry. Statements are made that about $70,000,000
worth of imported goods are now stored in bonded warehouses in New
York waiting for the reduction of Tariff duties, so as to get the benefit
of the reduction, and it is expected that when the new Tariff law goes
into effect the dutiable value of the goods stored in the bonded ware
houses of Xew York alone will be more than $100,000,000. There are
bonded warehouses at other ports of entry containing imports worth
millions, the values represented being foreign values. Calculating that
the total dutiable value is $150,000,000, it is claimed that with an aver
age duty of 50 per cent, added the admission of these goods at the re
duced Tariff would mean the displacement of about $200,000,000 for
American wage-earners who otherwise would be engaged in the manu
facture of $200,000,000 worth of goods, besides seriously impairing the
revenue of ihe government. As one Republican Senator puts it: "it
is wholly unjust that foreigners should be permitted to pile up their
goods in bond waiting for the reduction of duties that will be made fli
the Underwood bill. The situation is clearly a menace, not only to the
treasury, which is being denied millions of dollars of revenue, but also
to American workingmen."
FLOGGING NO CURE.
FLOGGING does not seem to have done Chun Duck Soon much
good and the unfortunate man has once more escaped from jail.
His attempts and successes in breaking jail are only natural
just as natural as those of a caged bird or animal. The officials in
charge of the jail deserve all the censure that is possible, for they, after
all, are responsible for his getting away clear. Better precautions
should have been taken especially when it is known that Chun Duck
Soon is addicted to the jail breaking habit. The territory is put to a
lot of trouble and expense to say nothing about the danger to the pur
suing officers every time a prisoner escapes. Chief McDuffie and his
men have quite enough to do in discovering criminals and arresting
them once, without having to chase up the same men, time after time,
after they escape from the prison. Flogging is no cure for the escape
habit, and the sooner men are confined and watched properly the bet
ter it will be for the territory at large.
NOW "GO FOR" FOSS.
EARLY in the discussion of the new Tariff measure the adminis
tration burned the Washington wire to threaten a prosecution of
every manufacturer who closed his factory or attempted to re
duce wages on account of the proposed reduction of the Tariff sche
dules. No one was seriously frightened by the threat or warning, call
it by whichever term you please. But every Republican is smiling
now. The Democratic Governor of Massachusetts and a prominent
manufacturer says he will have to close his mills in this country and
move his machinery to Canada- lie has purchased a site there and will
move. Now let the Democratic President "go for" the Democratic
governor. Will he?
JMAUI BALL TEAM.
!T is a great pity that Maui will not be represented in the annual
Honolulu regatta, but it was found that the financial burden was
too great for the club and therefore there will be no Maui crew this
year. However, the suggestion that a Maui baseball team pay Hono
lulu a visit is a good one, and one that should be carried out. Maui
defeated a strong Oahu team a few weeks ago and there is no doubt in
the minds of all the Yalley Island fans that Maui could duplicate the
trick on the Honolulu diamond.
United States Senator Sterling in a speech recently on the Tariff
question, made a charge against the Democratic party that it cannot
possibly get away from. It was that it is "overthrowing one of the
fundamental policies of the country without the sanction of a majority
of the voters of the country." That this is true, a glance at the plat
forms of the three parties that went before the people last fall, and at
the votes for the candidates standing on them, will prove beyond con
troversy. The town of Wailuku has been much improved by the removal of
many of the old fences that used to be such an eyesore. It is to be
hoped, that, in time, other property owners will follow the good exam
ple set by the pioneers in the fence removing business. There are no
stray cattle or horses that might damage flower beds or lawns and, it is
presumed, that is the only reason why some fences still exist.
That a Maui baseball team should
go to Honolulu for Regatta Day is
the latest idea. J. Garcia has
written "Tony" Marcnllino sug
gesting the excursion, and there is
a probability that the trip will be
made by eleven Maui players. The
following letter explains the matter
Mr. A. Q. Marcnllino,
My Dear Tony:
Some of the Maui fans have the
itch, and are desirous of meeting
some of the Honolulu teams on Re
gatta day, and few days after. Is
it at all possible for you to arrange
a series of games between Honolulu
teams and an All-Maui aggregation
for Regatta day and or two games
following. I feel certain, in view
of the baseball reputation which
Maui now has, it would be a very
attractive drawing card, and the
matter of expense would be small
compared to the receipts. Of course,
we want nothing further than our
legitimate transportation and hotel
expense, including meals, and we
want to bring eleven men from
Maui, as we have two or three boys
who are going to school in Honolulu.
I think excursion rates will prevail
for the Regatta events, and I should
indeed be pleased to see some base
ball arrangements completed. Let
me know just how you feel on this
proposition, and if there is any
possibility of a few games being
IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF HANA,
COUNTY OF MAUI, TERRITORY
The safest thing to do when confronted with what looks like a cer
tain automobile collision is to strictly obey the rules of the road. The
odds are that the other party to the probable smash will also obey the
rules, and think just as quickly as you do. To disobey the rules of the
road will surely land the thoughless one in "the soup."
At the present time the Kastern refineries are utilizing less than half
the productive capacity of their plants, and it will be a simple matter
for them to deal a death blow to the domestic production of sugar as
they will have the assurance of an absolute monopoly as soon as the
domestic industry is annihilated.
Through the death of George Alexander, late manager of the Amer
ican Type Founders Company, the printers of the United States have
lost a good, loyal friend, who was always ready to help out any of the
brethren. R. I. P.
The news that Fire Chief Thurston is to remain in office as long as
his conduct is satisfactory, is good, and it means that "Charlie" will
die in harness many years from now, we hope.
