THE GARDEN ISLAND. TUESDAY, APRIL 18, 1916.
BOOSTING FOR THE
"Over on the Big Island every
body seems to be talking of the
Fifth Civic Convention and the
Second Hawaii County Fair," said
a well known traveling man the
other day when passing through
Lihue. ''Why, judging from the
way Dr. Elliot, the chairman of
the county fair committee talks,
the only place where the big show
can be held with advantage is the
new Kuhio Bay Wharf. Anyone
who has seen that wharf must real
ize the splendid opportunity it
would afford for the proper dis
play of the exhibits. The Ililo
Armory is not ncarlv large enough
and could be filled with the poul
try and vegetable exhibits alone.
"While I was in Hilo last week,
a suggestion was made that Ship
man street, the thoroughfare that
the Armory is built on. should be
closed during fair lime and that a
couple of empty store buildings
that also front on the street, be
utilized for exhibits. That shows
how the county fair proposition is
growing on the Big Island.
"I hear that entries are piling
in tor tne tair and that the prize
lists are to be announced for the
dinerent exhibits and sections
next week. There will probably
be over nine hundred sections of
all kinds of agricultural, mechani
cal, school, home industries and
live stock exhibits to be judged, so
some idea of the size of the fair
can be gained by those figures.
Then there is the Fifth Civic
Convention, which is to be held at
the same time as the fair. Chairman
McKay told me last week that the
invitations to the convention had
been already sent out and that ac
ceptances are coming Pack b y
every mail. The number of dele
gates from anv civic convention,
see the fair and have a good time,
should certainly go to Hilo next
Reports from other sources con
firm the story of the visitor to
Kauai and it is evident that Hilo
and the whole Island of Hawaii
mean business of the biggest kind
next September. The Kauai Cham
ber of Commerce and the Kauai
Board of Supervisors have received
invitations to the convention, and
it is very probable that theie will
be a big delegation from this is
ma to f ii lo . me tttioites in
tend to show their visitors every
thing and to send them back to
their own islands satisfied that the
Crescent Bay City has developed
wonderfully during the past few

IN UPPER HOUSE
Special Waahinglon correspondence of THE
GARDEN ISLAND. )
Washington. D. C, March 31.
It is regarded as reasonably cer
tain that the present duty of one
cent a pound will be continued
upon imports of sugar for four
years in accordance with the bill
agreed upon by the Democratic
caucus of the Senate and repotted
to the Senate by the Senate Com
mittee on Finance. The bill re
ported is a substitute for the bill
passed by the Housa continuing
the present sugar tariff rate defi
nitely. The change in the Demo
cratic program is said to have been
made upon suggestions from the
Treasury Department which holds
out the hope that in four years the
revenues of the Government will
be sufficient to meet its expendi
tures and that sugar at that time
may safelv go upon the free list.
Representatives hete of produc
ers of sugar-cane and beet are in
clined to make no serious opposi
tion to the four-year proposal,
with the exception of the Louisi
ana Senators and Representatives,
who want the qualification elimi
nated and the sugar tariff retained
indefinitely. Some of the friends
of the sugar producers say that
if the Republicans come into pow
er within the four years the four-
vear limit will be removed and
possibly the tariff rate restored to
one and a-half cents per pound,
and, if tney should not be return
ed to power the need for revenue
under a Democratic regime will
be so great as to make it necessary
to retain lue sugar duty.

was written shows that the situa
tion has changed somewhat. Ed.
