' The proposed bill (H. R. 11471)

sent rates of duty on sugar and
kindred products in full force and
The Sugar Rates.
The act of August 5. 1909, pro
vided a tax on sugar not above
No. 16 Dutch standard in color
and testing by the polariscope not
above 75, of 0,95 of 1 cent per
pound, and for every additional
degree shown by the polariscopic
test .035 of 1 cent per pound ad
ditionaljand on all sugar above No.

which had gone through a process
of refining. 1.9 cents per pound.
The aot of October 3. 1913. re
duced the sugar rates of the act of
1909 approximately 25 per cent,
eliminated the Dutch standard test,
and made the tax on sugar testing
by the polariscope not above 75 J
0.71 of 1 cent per pound, and for J
every additional degree shown bvi
the polariscopic test 0.026 of 1 1

ports of dutiable sugar conies from

There are others who are dainty through personal fastidiousness.
Their own taste and inclination prevent them from going about in
careless or untidy dress,
But it seems to me the biggest and best reason of all for a dainty

The Revenue Yield From Sugar And Kindred
During the fiscal year ended
June 30, 1915, tin present tax on
the at tides covered by the para
graphs affected by the free-sugar
provisions amounted to $49,555,
361.28, distributed as follows:
Maple sugar and sirup 37.9S4.83
Sugar cane, in its natural state
or unmanufactured 29,090.70
Sirup, refined 1,966.11
Grape sugar 4.06
The amount of the drawback
paid on imported sugar used in
the refined sugar exported during
the same period was $5,401,173.29
Therefore the net revenue yield to
the Government during the fiscal
year 1915 from sugar and the other
articles provided for in the para
graphs affected by the free-sugar
provision, was $44,154,187.99.
Necessity For This Legislation
Had the normal conditions ex
lsting at tne time ot tne passage
of the act of October 3, 1913, not
been disturbed by the European
war, it would not have been neces
sary to continue the present rates
of duty on sugar after May 1, 1916.
1 his legislation is made neces
sary in order that the Treasury
may have the benefit of the reve
nue receipts from sugar to assist
in meeting the decline in customs
and postal receipts, due to the dis
turbed conditions resulting from
the European war, and also to as
sist in meeting the decline in ordi
nary internal-revenue receipts
Your committee, therefore, re-
commends that the free-sugar pro-
vision of paragraphs 177 and 178
of the sugar schedule of the act of
October 3, 1913, be repealed, in
order that the present rates of duty
upon sugar and its kindred pro
ducts may remain in full foiceand
efiect; to the end that the Treas-
ury may not under existing inter
national trade conditions be de
prived of the receipts from sugar

Hilo people are stirring up a
great deal of enthusiasm regarding
the Fifth Civic Convention, sav
Kauaians who have recently visit-
d the Crescent Bay Citv, and,
udging from the stories that are
eaking out, the delegates who at
tend the convention are going to
lave the time of their lives.
Although the convention does
not open till September 21, the
Hilo Board of Ttade has placed
the management of the whole af-
air in the hands of William Mc
Kay, who is the president of the
organization. The committee in
charge' consists of the board of
trustees, headed bv President Mc
Kay. Later on sub-committees will

and he will handle the correspon
dence and publicity work.
From all accounts, the visit of
the delegates to Hilo will be made
a very pleasant one. Excursions
to the Hamakua. Puna and Volca
no districts will be features of the
convention and, besides, all the
beauties of the district near Hilo
will be enjoyed.
In addition to the convention,
there will be another great feature
n Hilo on September 22-23 for,
on those two days, the Second Ha
waii County Fair will be in full
swing. The delegates to the con
vention will be the guests of the
Hilo people at the Fair, and the
visitors will be given every oppor
tunity to see what the Big Island
can provide in the way of agricul
tural products, live slock and
manufactured products. The first'
tir, which was held last year in
Hilo, was a great success, but the
coming one is expected to be even
better. There is already talk of
having to secure much larger prem
ises for the exhibition, and it may
turn out that the new Kuhio Bay

There is no smoke nor odor. Fried foods are free from
the taste of grease. They now are tasty and crisp. They
are made more digestible, for Crisco is all vegetable.
The same Crisco can be used to fry fish, -onions, dough

after each frying.
Crisco gives pastry a new flakiness and digestibility.
Crisco always is of the same freshness and consistency.
It's uniform quality makes for uniform results.
Crisco gives richness at smaller cost, It brings cake
