Honolulu, February 25. "I can
, not sec why the sugar agents here
I do not get together und protest
j against the treatment they ure re
ceiving at the hands of the sugar
trust or why they don't refine
their own sugar," said Senator L.
L,. McCandless yesterday. "If they
don't it won't be long before the
main industry of the Islands is
"We were examining the statis
tics 011 sugar production and sugar
consumption in the United States
,ln ntlinf rlni Tntif T nllletQnn

, ,, n,
totis of raw sugar, Porto Rico, 85,-
000 tons; the Philippines, 90,000

tons; Hawaii, 375,000 long tons,
'and 111 the United States proper
were produced 195,000 tons of beet
sugar, making a total production in
the United States nnd her Territor
ies of 1,035,000 tons. Hawaii,
therefore, shipped 35 per cent, of
all the sugar produced in the United
States. During the same time,
also, the people of America con
sumed 2,566,108 tons, so that Ha
waii grows one-sixth oi all the
sugar used in the united btates.
And here is Hawaii selling her pro
duct to the sugar trust at H and
yd per cent, off the market price at
San Francisco and New York re
spectively. Not only that, when
sugar is quoted on the continent at J
3.96, for instance, in some way the
New York quotation made by the
trust is about 3.46, and Hawaii not
only gets her yi of 1 per cent, less
than the market price, but also the
'i cent per pound less which marks
the difference between the actual
value of sugar and the valuation
placed upon it by the trust.
"Now, I don't believe in accept
ing the dictation of the trust any
longer. Why should we sell our
sugar to the trust at yi per cent,
less than the New York market, or
- less than the San Frauqisco price.
I believe that the plunters here can
put on the market refined sugar at
the prices that raw sugar is now
selling for iti New York, with the
rebate allowed to the trust, by
building a refinery in New York or
"The people here should get to
gether. Think of a community
like Hawaii, which produces 35 per
cent, of the raw sugar 6f the United
States and cue-sixth of the sugar
consumed in the United States, al
lowing itself to be dictated to by
the sugar trust and told what we
should do with our own sugar. If
it keeps on the planters here will
eventually be forced out of btisiness
"Some people say that the trust
will fight us. Suppose it does. We
have one-sixth of the sugar and re
fine it ourselves, while the trust has
five-sixths and for every dollar we
lose the trust will lose five. Sprock
ets defeated he trust and compelled
it to come to his terms, and he had
only thirteen millions behind him.
What is to prevent us from going
in and building n refinery and
marketing our own sugar. I know
it will take money, about thirty
millions to handle our crop every
year, uut we have the property
here on which to borrow money
and I am willing that my interest
shall be hypothecated to get the
funds needed to fight for our rights.
There are twenty million dollars
worth of property on Oahu alone
and it ought not to be difficult to
raise money sufficient to build a re
finery. Most of the plantations have
a two yenrs'contract with the trust,
but it will take that length of time
to build a refinery and get ready to
market the refined product. It
would be a good thing if u refinery
could be erected in the islands some
where, but this is not feasible be
cause of the damage to refined
sugar in shippiug by sea. And a
plant in New York or Philadelphia
would be hi the center of the east

fortifying Honolulu against the pos
sible attacks of enemies. A former
consideration of Honolulu's peerless
lookout mountain, about whose
base some of the prettiest suburbs
are clustered, for n formidable cita-,
del resulted in abandonment of the I
idea as not of the best military
Now, it is authoritatively an-i
nounced, the War Department is
again taking up the question of es-;
tablishing a powerful land battery I
upon Punchbowl Colonel McClel-'
Ian, commandant of the Coast Ar- j
tillery garrison at Camp McKinley, I
has approached the Territorial Gov-'
eminent on the subject. The plan
broached is to place heavy guns,
some distance back from the rim of'
the extinct crater far enough '
back, it is suggested, to avoid dam-j
age to buildings in town from con-1
cussion when the guns ure fired. 1
No doubt the caution could not be
always kept mute in times of peace,
as the gunners must have some
practice and a raugc-fiudiug field .
for the possible enemy be con-
The Territorial Government is
consulted in the matter by courtesy,
us the War Department wishes to
ascertain how the citizens of Hono
lulu "otild regard the planting of!
heavy ordnance over their heads.
It is said that the guns would
have a range1 out to sea over the
city of 12,000 yards. As the effec
tive range of a modem battleship's
guns is 8,000 yards, the theory is
that the Punchbowl battery would
be able to keep an enemy at a re
spectful distance. Though under
the articles of war the fortifying of
the city would invite its bombard
ment by an enemy, the argument
is heard that if not fortified the city
would be captured anyway.
On the part of the Government,
it is suggested, the aquisition of
Punchbowl for fortification pur
poses by the War Department might
be accompanied with a restoration
to the Territory of the drillshed
property as the greatly desired site
of the projected new armory of the
National Guard of Hawaii.
The Ways of a Politician.
"There is a man in my district,"
said Representative "Tom" Kyle,
the "Sweet Singer of Ohio," ac
cording to the New York World,
"whose name is Doyle. He is a
politician and he has the fatal habit
of promising all things to all men.
Nobody ever went to him to ask
him to get him a job that Doyle
did not say, 'Why, yes, I'll get
that for you.'
"Nine times out of ten Doyle
doesn't make good, but he goes on
promising just the same. Some
years ago two Irishmen who worked !
in a boiler factory in my town were
busy riveting. One man was inside
the boiler holding a hammer against
the rivets and the other was outside
swinging the sledge and making
the rivets fast.
"After ' half an hour steady
pounding the man inside stuck his
head outside of the boiler and said:
" 'Say, Pat, did ye hear that
they've been after making' this
man Cqrrigau a cardinal?'
" 'Are ye tellin' me?' asked Pat;i
'why, d'ye know, Doyle promised
that job to me?' "
