DEMOCRATS DREAD LOSS OF RBVDNUE.
FOLLOWING the report from the Secretary of the Treasury that
the government will lose ahout 510,000,000 if the goods now
stored in bonded warehouses are held until their importers can
have the benefit of the lower duties provided for in the new bill,
conies the information from Washington that the Democrats in the
Congress are considering action which would make all goods brought
into this country and stored previous to the enactment of the Under
wood bill, dutiable according to the present rales.
The inconsistency of such action would be self-evident. The very
fact that it is being considered condemns the low Tariff bill out of the
minds of its authors.
How absurd it is to think of putting the higher duties upon imports
which are entitled to be released upon payment of the lower ones, in
the face of the Democratic contention that public benefit will come of
The fact that the government will lose S10,000,000 revenue is obvi
ously negligible. The sum is a mere trifle compared with the annual
losses that will follow, and, in any case, loss of revenue is an inevitable
consequence of Tariff reduction.
Manifestly, even while the Free-Tradeward legislation is yet pending,
the Democrats are beginning to dread at least that part of its effects
which is a foregone certainty, the loss of revenue.
A STRAIGHT PARTY MEASURE.
THE responsibility for this bill in all its details and in its conse
quences will rest squarely on the Democratic party and the Wil
son administration. It is a Wood row Wilson bill throughout.
It is his influence and authority never relaxed that have made the bill
as radical as it is, kept the large Democratic vote in the House substan
tially a unit for it and subdued the rebellious promptings of half a doz
en Democratic Senators who felt that the interests of their States were
sacrificed in the blil. j
When the effects of this new Tariff are felt, tvlien keen foreign com.
petition has driven our manufacturers out of the home market, when
many mills are compelled to close down and thousands of men and
women are thrown out of work, there will be no difficulty iu fixing the
responsibility. That will be the price that the country will have to
pay for disregarding past experience and placing the Democratic party
again in power.
TARIFF TROUBLES AHEAD.
TIT HERE are Tariff troubles ahead, say the New York importers,
but there are countless thousands of others who have the same
opinion. Every American industry paying their fair wages to
workingmen under Protective duties is sure to have trouble, and the
trouble will be worse for the wage earner.
But the importers' trouble is to be over the working of the new
Tariff bill, because of the shifting of rates from a specific to an ad val
orem basis, wlucli will result in great alterations ot customs practices
and at the beginning in serious frauds and evasions of the law. These
latter will most concern the customs authorities, and call for increasing
vigilance and strict honesty.
Ordinary citizens would never be able to understand and straighten
out the complications of the present Tariff bill, and it is very question
able whether or not nine-tenths of the members of Congress compre
hend the purpose of every item in the various schedules.
Sure it is there will be no end of trouble for the customs officials and
importers in arriving at an understanding of the new customs duties.
One of the best publications ever
brought out in Hawaii is the manu
al on the Japanese and English
languages which has just been is
sued by the Hawaii Shinpo Slia,
Ltd., of Honolulu.
The purpose, of the work is to
give everyone a practical under
standing of the common phrases
used in every-day conversation.
The phrases are brief aiyl convey to
Americans wishing to gain a knowl
edge of Japanese phrases and to
Japanese desiring to learn the Eng
lish language, a knowledge that
could not be acquired in any oilier
way without long study of either
The book is arranged so that
English phrases relating to all man
ner of ordinary work and living can
easily be found. Alongside the
English is to be found the Japanese
equivalent in English characters,
and spelled in phonetic fashion.
By giving each letter it's proper
value, even a Uginncr can easily
express himself in the Japanese
I'hra-xs to be used in a store,
oir.ee, plantation field, police court,
bank, photographer's, laundry, post
office, drug store, barber's shop,
newspaper office, restaurant, ball

fifty more places, are to be readily
found in the book.
Editor Sheba, of the Hawaii
Shinpo Shu, is the compiler of the
conversational book, and he is to
be congratulated on putting out one
of the best works that has been
thought of or published in many
THE CIVIC CONVENTION.
HE presence in Honolulu of the splendid company of representa
tive men from the other Islands as delegates to the second annual
Civic Convention, spells more for the progress of the Territory
as a whole, says TrenTrusTics, than anyihing that has happened in
Hawaii-nei in a generation.
The splendid spirit of the large Hawaii delegation, fused with the
enthusiasm of the Honolulu Ad Club, and supplemented by the hearty
interest of the Maui and Kauai contingencies, has brought about a feel
ing of goodwill and co-operation that will help us all onward and up
ward. What if sugar dividends be greatly reduced or almost totally elimin
ated during the near future? With this new spirit uniting us all as
brothers in a commoncause, Hawaii-nei will continue to develop and
expand in a commercial sense, and the days to come will be better than
the days that have gone.

What they call the industrial trend to Canada seems to be accelerated
by the new Tariff bill, which ought properly to be styled a bill to re
move the industries from the United States and to locate them in other
countries. The immensity of this issue is just beginning to dawn up
on some of the Democratic leaders. It will become still bigger before
they get through with it.
The refiners of raw cane sugar from Cuba demand the entire market t
themselves. They do not want to do business with the American
farmer. They would rather ship the raw sugar from abroad
and refine it on the seaboard and dispose of it at their own figures.
And the Democratic party is playing the Cane Trust's game.
