"FREE SUGAR"--DEAR SUGAR.
TIIIv notion that "free sugar" necessarily means cheaper suar to
American people should he pretty well exploded, says the Troy
Times. Nevertheless, the Democratic President and Congress
have gone ahead with their preparations to reduce the duties immedi
ately and make sugar "free" by 1915. The country has had "free
coffee" for many years and "free hides" since the Tariff of 1909 was
enacted. What effect has the making of these products "free" had in
reducing the cost of coffee and of shoes to the consumer? What reason
is there for anticipating cheaper sugar as a result of admitting the
foreign product free and thus injuring a great American industry? An
interesting answer to the latter query is found in a speech by United
States Senator Reed Smoot, of Utah. Senator Smoot represents a State
in which, as in many other Western commonwealths, the growing of
sugar beets has attained important proportions and ministers to the
prosperity of the people. In his address he showed how "during sev
eral mouths of every year beet sugar has regularly performed the ser
vice to the American people of bringing about a reduction in wholesale
prices." This reduction was forced upon refiners to enable them to
meet the competition of the domestic product turned out by beet-sugar
factories from Michigan to California.
Senator Smoot presented the facts with convincing force, putting the
case in this emphatic fashion:
"I say to you, Senators, that the hope of competition arising from
outside to replace the laboriously secured competition now afforded by
the domestic sugar industry, which you propose to strike down, is a
vain delusion and a snare. I say that if this bill were honestly labeled
it would be described as to schedule IJ as "a bill" for the destruction of
the domestic sugar industry and for the enrichment of the refiners be
yond the dreams of avarice."
Another phase of the matter to which the Senator alluded was indi
cated by the fact that we are putting $100,000,000 in the pockets of
foreigners for sugar which we import front abroad and which, in a few
years under adequate Protection, we could produce at home.
Senator Smoot's incontrovertible arguments add to the overwhelming
evidence that the result of making some imports free is simply to in
crease the wealth of big domestic operators like the sugar refiners who
would get their raw material free and with no fear of home competition,
making the consumer "pay the freight," or to increase the gains of
foreigners. The American producers and wage-earners suffer severely,
and consumers are not benefited in the slightest degree.
WIPE OUT HUERTA.
AT last there would seem to be some chance of Mexico being
brought to her senses regarding the treatment of American
property. The rest of the Powers must have smiled when they
saw h'ow Schoolmaster Wilson and professional lecturer Bryan were
handling the situation up till a few days aco. Indignity after indig
nity was piled on Americans, and all the weak-kneed American pre
sident could do was to send envoys to find out how much damage was
Now that Great Britain, Germany and France are backing up the
United States, the end of the murderer Iluerta should be in signt.
That Iluerta engineered the cold blooded killing of Medero there is no
doubt. For that one reason Huerta should never be recognized as
president of Mexico. It is to be hoped that the United States will
now take hold of everything north of Panama, and let us have a united
and decently ruled North America.
There is a decided interest being taken in county affairs and the sooner
things come to a head, and a general cleaning up of minor abuses is
made, the better it will be for everyone concerned. It is said that a
stocktaking of all the material and implements belonging to the county
is to be made. That is as it should be, and no one with clean skirts
can object to such a move.
"It never rains but it pours," is an old saying and one that applies
just now regarding wrecks. A couple of weeks ago the shipwrecked
crew of the Amaranth landed in Honolulu. Then the Robert Searles'
crew made Maui, and now the men of the S. C. Allen are stranded in
Honolulu, Three shipwrecked crews in as many weeks is going some
' When the American mills are running, for every 30 cents worth of
raw material which goes into a manufactured article there's 70 cents
paid out for labor. When the mills are closed both the 30 and the 70
cents are eliminated. Working men look out for your 70 cents. Vote

Dance Nov. 8
There will be a bazaar in aid of
the Catholic Ladies Aid Society on
Saturday, November 8, and at it a
wonderful assortment of fancy
goods, toys and useful articles will
be displayed for sale. The fair will
be held either in the Town Hall or
the Armory, and ample notice will
be given of the time and place.
Uast year the bazaar of the so
ciety broke all records and, long
before the day was over, every
thing was sold out. This year an
extra large lot of articles will be
on sale, and the ladies of the society
are determined -to break all records
for bazaars in Wailuku.
As no affair of any kind in Wai
luku is thought to be complete
without a dance, there will be a
"hop" to wind up the bazaar. The
best of music will be secured and
the floor will be polished to resem
ble glass. That every one will en
joy themselves, goes without say
ing, and the giddy waltz, two-step
and rag will be worked overtime.

Senator Metzger would seem to be the logical Democrat for the posi
tiou of Governor of Hawaii. Pinkham's confirmation has been held
up so long that it looks as if he will never land the job. Why not get
together, Democrats, and boost for one man D. K. Metzger.
The echoes of the second civic convention are still to be heard and it
is good that it is so. The next convention is to be held on Maui, and
it is not a second too early to begin to work for the big affair right now.

Carnival week in Honolulu is an excellent one, and should be worked
