FINE SADDLES trade of the islands is increasing
English Saddlos a Specialty 'each year, the Philadelphia Press
obseives. In September of last
year we sent $172,000 worth of ex
ports to the Philippines; in Septem
ber of this year we sent 448,000
worth. In the first nine mouths of
last year our imports from the
1 islands- were valued at about $7,
000,000; in the corresponding period
1 of this year they were valued at
about $9,000,000. Tile chief im
ports were Manila fiber and sugar.
1 The papers that comment on this
1 bill regard it as a move in the right
direction, but think we ought to do
1 better and abolish the duties en
tirely, as we did with Porto Rico.
1 "Why not give wholly and at once
that freedom of commercial inter
course which must come in time,"
asks the Chicago Tribune, "and
thus give at an earlier day to the
islands the greater prosperity which
that intercourse will bestow on them
as it has on Porto Rico?" And the
I New York Sun remarks:
j "On what possible ground can a
distinction be drawn between Porto
Rico and the Philippines? Are not
the latter as much entitled to jus
tice as the former? Are we not
committing a serious blunder in
policy when we so treat the Fili
pinos as to enable them to say with
truth that we discriminate against
them as compared with other former
subjects of Spain? It is surprising
that, under such circumstances,
there should still be some disaffec
tion in the Philippines?
"Is there no Republican Senator
who will lorce his colleagues to
acknowledge that it is not only im
politic, but iniquitous, to apply one
fiscal principle in dealing with Porto
Rico and another in dealing with
the Philippine archipelago? Some
years ha'c passed since Porto Rico
began to enjoy the absolute freedom
of trade with the United States
which is conceded to Hawaii. Why
are two of the three principal ex
port staples of the Philippines still
compelled to pay 75 per cent, of the
Dingley rates in order to gain en
trance to our ports, and why does
even Senator Lodge, while profess
ing generous intentions, insist that
the sugar and tobacco of the Phil
ippines must continue to pay at
least 50 per cent, of the Dingley
rates before they are allowed to
reach American consumers?
"How can we expect the Philip
pines to exhibit the tranquility and
loyalty which prevail in Porto Rico,
when the former islands are sub
jected to unequal and invidious
treatment by our fiscal legislation?"
The New York Tribune believes
that the lower rates will enable the
I Filipinos to recover their lost pros
perity. At the same time it thinks
that nothing sent here from the is
lands could seriously compete with
American products. To quote:
"The United States holds the
Philippines in trust. It must make
its connection with them beneficial.
The change" in their commercial
connections worked by their separa
tion from Spain, the loss caused by
the insurrection and then by the
disease which destroyed the cattle
have created a serious industrial
situation. The Philippine Commis
sion is convinced that better access
to American markets is essential to
cure this and bring relief, and con
sequently contentment, to the Fili
pinos. It costs far more to main
tain an army in a disaffected terri
tory and supply the wants of a
needy population than is realized to
the Government in duties or to the
commercial classes in profits which
they might conceivably lose through
"There is no reason to fear, how
ever, that the commercial classes
as a whole would lose unvtliiiiir.

nothing which could be sent here
so as seriously to compete with
American products, nor is there any
prospect of sjich competition for
many years. The fear that the
amount of sugar they now grow
would injure anybody here, or that
it can be so increased as to be a
menace, is ridiculous in view of
the vast quantities of sugar we are
now compelled to impoi t No otlur

Governor Carter has also stopped
expenditures for advertising and
will make cuts in every department
where it is possible to do so. Re
cently he had a conference with
Immigration Commissioner I.an-,
sing, in which the latter was told
that there could not be any more
money put up by the Territory at
present for advertising, and it is
understood that Lansing will re
sign at the end of this month.
The Promotion Committee will
have to do without aid from the
Territory. The treasury prospects
are so low that only expenditures I
which are deemed absolutely nc-1
ccssary will be made. In the Pub
lic Works, and all other depart-1
inenls, Carter has asked the heads
to cut di wn expenses. 1
The p. lu'y in making the cuts is'
generallj . leave as many Hawaii
aus as possible in the service. This
will be the course gem-rally followed
in all the departments. '

Fred I.andis, the attenuated .
Hoosier representative, who quit
work to come to Congress, was
lunching with friends recently in
the House restaurant, says the
Washington letter of the New York
Tribune. "I am sorry that we are 1
going to have a change in the'
weather," said Laudis, as he gazed
reflectively at his cup of coffee. j
"Change in the weather?" re
peated "Jim" Griggs, the hustling I
Georgia manager of Democratic '
Congress campaigns. "Why, I
never saw a more beautiful day in
Washington bright, bracing, and
the sun shining so brilliantly that
we ought to be at the races, instead
of listening to tariff arguments."
"Can't be helped," insisted Lan
dis, "we are going to have a storm. '
The bubbles rising from the sugar '
in my coffee, and known to all loyal
Hoosiers as 'lucky spots ' remain
on the surface in the center of the
cup, instead of separating and go
ing to the side. Infallible sign of
a change. It is as safe to bet on
that sign as it would be to back the
chances of Republican success next
year. Both are easy money."
With a pitying smile, Griggs
called for another cup of coffee, but
carefully refrained from using

To Pruvknt Croui', begin in
time. The first symptom is hoarse
ness; this is soon followed by a
peculiar rough cough, which is
easily recognized and will never he
forgotten by one who has heard it.
The time to act is when the child
first becomes hoarse. If Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy is freely
given, all tendency to croup will
soon disappear. F.ven after the
croupy cough has developed, it will
prevent the attack. There is no
danger in giving this remedy as it
contains nothing injurious. It al
ways cures and cures quickly. The
Hilo Drug Store sells it.
