EniTou Trihonk: In reply to the
editorial published In the Herald of this
morning, with reference to the matter of
"common nuisance" with which my
name was connected in tuu District
Court last Tuesday, I wish to say that
newspapers, like individuals, should not
jump nt conclusions nud in fairness
should give nn accurate account of what
ever news matter they have. Mr. Bow
man served notice 011 the undersigned,
giving 30 days during which to place n
"sanitary piece of property" in Puueo
in "sanitary condition." Even if the
place was "unsanitary" which I emphati
cally deny and nm ready to prove, his
swearing to a warrant for common nuis
ance before the expiration of the 30 days
was an unwarranted piece of officious
nes.s and something back of it probably.
At the time, of swearing out his warrant,
if Mr. Bowman had taken the trouble to
examine Jhe premises, it would probably J
have dawned on his mental superstruc
ture that it was he, Mr. Bowman, who
was committing an act of common
nuisance, in doing what he should not
That same day I wrote to Dr. Slow to
examine my place, and that, he refused
to do. Neighbors in Puueo have not
complained and say they have no cause

MY Uhau Sih: My ntlentioil wns
'drawn by an article in Harper's Weekly
of April yth, relative to your visit to I
Potto Rico, and having investigated the j
condition of the'Terrilory and its people, '
This p.tpcr advocates thai a duty be
placed oncoflec from foreign countries so
as to protect territories under our flag.
It is in connection with protection to
the coffee industry that I wish to dwell
I my sell nm nil American citiren en
gaged in the cultivation of the coffee
industry in Hawaii.
When the senatorial commission, com
posed of Messrs, John II. Mitchell,
Foster, and Burton visited Hawaii in the
fall of 1902, I nppenred before these
gentlemen und spoke in behalf of pro
tection to the now American coffee in
dustry. Mine, nud other memorials arc to be
found in the (Tinted report giving all the
hearings of citizens relative to various
conditions in Hawaii.
The coffee industry in Hawaii is not so
extensive ns in Porto Rico, but under a
protective tariff wou'd surpass that of
Potto Rico, for this territory possesses n
larger area than our sister territory in
The industry here has been steadily
deel uing owing to the severe competition
caused by nu over production in countries
not under the American flag, nud vast
sums of capital have been sunk in coffee
eutet prises in this territory.
Previous to annexation to the United
Stales we had a protective duty of 7 cents
u pound in the local market, while nt
present we have no protection whatever.
The industry is in the hands of mostly
small laud owners, homesteaders, and
women and children engage in picking
their own crops.
The condition of these homesteaders is
deplorable indeed, us an inspection of
their places attests to grass and weeds
flourishing more than coffee or anything
else. Many have nbaiidoucd their home
steads nnd gone to work on the sugnr
The coffee industry especially is a most
desirable one for white immigrants in the
tropics. It is ns you know cultivated in
the mountain regions, where white people
can enjoy the best of health, anil the
harvesting being light and easy enables
women, girls and ltoys to earn uioitcy
picking the berries.
This industry under 11 protective policy
has wonderful possibilities in Hawaii,
Porto Rico and the Phillipiucs. The
tropical domain ol the United States,
namely these mentioned territories could
in time easily provide nnd supply the
whole nation with this beverage.
It is nu industry that can never con
flict wilh any agricultural product of the
present domain of the mainland of the
United States, where it does not grow.
This growth and great future industry
can be developed under the American
flag, and its principal benefit would go
to American citizens. We arc sending
now millions of money to foreign countries
benefiting foreign and European investors,
who arc heavily interested in Brazil, and
other South and' Central American
countries in this industry.
All European countries exact an import
duty on coffee'whilst the United States of
America opens her markets to free coffee.
Do we receive corresponding concess
ions from these foreign countries for such
a valuable gift?
We buy considerable coffee from Java,
yet what do our exports thither uuioiint
In Java it is n well known fact that
laborers only receive :o cts. a day in
wages. Can an American civilization
thrive, much less be built up in competi
tion oti such uneven terms?
If in your judgement and wisdom, my
dear sir, you would assist in having n
hide Its duty placed on coffee coming fiom
..Osgood foreign countries, you would confer an
everlasting blessing 011 the American
tropical territories, nud alto enhance n
better social condition than exists today.
Is it not only 'just nud fair that Con
gress should Eventually look beyond the
seas, towards her tropical possessions and
throw over them the strong arm of the
protective tariff that bus been accorded
the industry of the mainland.
The magnificent prosperity and in
dustry, the wealth of the United States,
that looms up ns n mighty factor in the
world's commerce has come through
It is the weak und feeble that need
nursing nud c.tre, the strong can stand
Mav we not plead that a spirit of
altruism be shown for the tropical terri
tories where the flag flies?
I trust that at the next session of Con
gress, for the sake of Hawaii, Porto Rico
and the Phillipiucs, you may deem it
wise to use your influence nud nssist an
industry that will bring new life and new
developemeiil into existence into this
Anticipating to hear from you favora
bly upon 11 question of such moment, I
Yours most respectfully,
