NOT INTELLIGENTLY PIU.PARnn.
VBTlIK I u i i ii i -l t -il ivin finds itself facing complaints from other na
m lioi:-.; because of the provision in the Underwood TaritT at yrant
iii:.; a di.iuli.u k of 5 per cent, of the dnti?s on goods brought to
t's- -.h. !: in Ann i ican vessels. This clause is claimed to he a vio
la! i I a number of commercial treaties, and the Administration has
'i nili' d it-; intention of securing its repeal.
Ii the 1'iesideiit issues orders to that tITect, the clause will he repeal -
J. It will amount to a confession of error in the making of the hill
and dimply conlirin the charges that the measure was not intelligently
Many errors, some of them absurd, were corrected during the consid-
i.itii'ii df the I'nderwood hill. It is admitted that the measure did not
tveie that extended and serious consideration "such a law deserves,
however. The 5 per cent, drawback is merely an instance, and an iin
poi taut one, of w hat hasty Tariff construction by inexperienced and
uni nfu! nied persons will bring.
.UFSIDKXT Wilson's remark to the effect that Iluerta should
go and hang himself," is about what could be expected of the
schoolmaster president. Xo doubt, if Iluerta should follow the
president's advice, a lot of worry and trouble would be avoided. How
ever, there is little chance of Iluerta doing anything so foolish, hut
there is a good chance of some of the Mexican citizens performing the
operation on the Dictator. In the mean time the "ultimatum" is being
laughed at ami the Mexicans are getting in all the guns and ammuni
tion that they possibly can obtain from foreign countries. If Wilson
felt that he could not back up his bluff, it would have been better for
him to keep out of the mess altogether.
OF THEM THAT SLEPT.
I'TLY and wittily quoting from the Good Book, the Mount
Clemens ( Mich.) Monitor characterizes the new Tariff law as
"the fust fruits of them that slept." That is exactly what it is.
Asleep at the switch and dead to their most vital interests, a large pro
portion of American Protectionists supported a third ticket in 1912 and
thereby brought into power a Free-Trade administration and a Con
gress controlled by h'ree-Traders in both branches. The Underwood
Simmons Tariff law is the result. Bitter will he "the first fruits of
them that slept." They will not be likely to sleep again. In the Con
gress elections of PM4 and the Presidential election of 1916 no Protec
tionist can afford to be caught asleep.
THEY ARE ALRHADY HEDGING.
TrHTllK stock argument of the Free-Traders and their newspapers in
H favor of the Tariff, was that it would reduce the cost of
Xow that the bill has become a law, they are hedging, giving it out
that the Five-Trade Tariff will not affect an immediate reduction in the
cost of living. The reduction, they say, will come some time, possibly
a ear or more hence.
That is putting the issue off long enough to enable the public to have
its attention distracted by other things, in the event that there is no effect
on the cos.t of living as many people believe is likely to result.

A GOOD S ELECT 10N.1 71 J
YWf :. Maui Athletic Association showed sense when it at a meeting
held lust week, elected Ha'old Rice as manager of the All
Mani baseball team. Maui will now be in the front rank in
spoil :, and the people of Honolulu will see that this island's 1k11 team
is pi opei 1 represented and properly managed on the baseball fields.
Mi. Rice is uf the right material, and he will see to it that the rc-pre-s.ntalive
ball players keep early hours, behave themselves at all times
and act in a way that will be a credit to Maui and its athletic asso
ciation. Sheiih Janelt did the right thing when he reinstated Chief McDuffie.
Thole was no evidence that McDullie ever did wrong, and the only in
foi in.ilioii that was available was that of jealous subordinates who, it is
hoped, w ill sunn be fired from the department. If, as reported, the
chief has been able to secure the services of a man who speaks fourteen
ihtli lent Km.:' iiagrs, then a lot of loafers who only held their jobs on
a.-eouut of being able to act as interpreters, will be bounced from the
The completion of the Kihei boat landing marks another step forwaul
by Maui. The need of a safe landing on that side of .Maui has been
known for a long time past. McGregor's is too rough at times, and
passengers have been over-carried to Ililo. The Kihei wharf should
be av ailable on most days, and the long trip from Lahaina to Fast
Maui by automobile will now be obviated.
Tlie Honolulu Ad. Club is a real live wire and the proposed excur
sion to Sau Francisco for the big fair, shows how wideawake the young
est organization in the territory is. It is to be hoped that the Ad
Club members do not forget to pay their promised visit to Maui.
We are told that as soon as the Underwood Tariff law went into effect
there would be a reduction in the high cost of living, but we are now
asked to wait for the currency bill. What rre we to believe?
"The Democratic Tariff promises to cheapen pickles," but it won'
cheapen the one the present administration is getting itself into.
