SUGAR TARIFF QUESTION DIVIDES CONGRESS
Red Flag Raised in Captured Town.
According to Washington, D. C, dispatches sugar is again looming
up to cause trouble in both parties In Congress. The cause of disturb
ance this time is the effort of the administration to secure reductions of
the customs duty on law sugar entering the United States from the
Philippines. This is undertaken by .the administration with the idea of
encouraging the industries of the Philippines and increasing the material
prosperity of the islands.
The movement is being opposed by the beet sugar growers ol the
middle states and the Pacific coast and the cane sugar producers of
Louisiana. Hearings arc being held by the ways and means committee,
and the subject of competition of outside producers of raw sugar with
infant American industries the sam subject which was threshed over
with Hawaii, with Porto Rico and the Cuban reciprocity bill is again
being gone oven There are many sides to the question, and statesmen
necessitated by their local conditions, find ready argument on all phases
of the proposition.
One fact stands out clear above all arguments, and that is the Ameri
can consumer of sugar is the' only one who is not getting any benefit
from the legislation of the past. Official figures just issued by the bureau
of statistics show that the consumers of the United States paid $40,000,
000 more for their sugar last year than for the corresponding period in
X904, and that they used less sugar. The Cuban and Hawaiian producers,-the
American refiners and thp American farmers are profiting,
but the man who buys the sugar for his table is paying more for it and
using less. It was testified .before the1 ways and means committee that
as to Cuban sugar the. producer in Cuba has made a gain of 18 cents per
hundred pounds, and the refiner in;,the United States 15 cents per
htiudred pourfds. That will go a little way toward explanation of the
fact that the people of the United Statis paid $40,000,000 more for their
Considering the subject impartiallynt is shown that the beet sugar in
this country is increasing and theiportntions of beet sugar from Ger
many fell off from nearly $5,000,6001111904 to a little more than $1,000,
000 in 1905, The importations frpraVfche, Philippines increased from less
than half a million to $2,200,6oS'hy. increased $4,000,000 from Porto
Rico, about $12,000,000 from Hawaii 'and $13,000,000 from Cuba. It is
well known, of course, that the Cuban sugar comes in on a concession of
20 per cent, from the Dingley rates and the Philippines sugar on a con
cession of 25 per cent. The pending opposition is to the increase of the
Philippines concession to the extent of 75 per cent.
While the beet sugar and cane sugar men and the sugar-refining in
terests are squabbling in Congress it is likely that a number of states
men will take up the questlonof why the consumers are not getting
some 01 me uenciu 01 me concession
Another interesting phase of the si
political parties are dividing more

late Judge G. F. Little atTanama was received by the last mail. After
an illness of a month in the Ancon Hospital, Judge Little died on De
cember 4th from a complication of liver and kidney trouble. AH that

resident Masous and the estate was taken in charge by H. A. Gudget,

July, 1904, he went to Panama, where he engaged in the practice of
law and took 'a prominent part in the political affairs of the Canal Zone.

who desire to settle In Hawaii, made a hurried trip to Hilo last week to
see Manager Ross of the Hakalau Plautatlon with a view of a possible

The lease will expire June 15, 1906, and Mr. McStocker's visit was for
the purpose of entering into some arrangement with the plantation re
garding planting and grinding contracts.
Manager Ross was favorably disposed to the movement, which would
insure a permanent laboring class for his plantation, but referred Mr.
McStocker to the directors of the company in respect to any special con
cessions which may be desired. While not accomplishing the purpose,
of his mission, Mr. McStocker returned with friendly assurances of
assistance, and it is understood the matter will be taken up with the
directors either Jn Honolulu or upon Mr. Castle's visit to Sun Francisco
within a few weeks.
Mr. McStocker stated that the negotiations for the settlement of the
Kaapa lands ou Kauai by the Russians had not fallen through, the only
difficulty being a hitch in workiuir out the details of ti ni,.. ti.
I Hekalau settlement proposition will be a distinct project.
