WEDNESDAY, MAY 17, 1882.
, From New York, under date of
A pill -C!i, wo learn Unit a report
lms been presented to the Maritime
Exchange by a comuiittco represent
ing tlie sugar interest, in reference
to the importation of sugar from the
Hawaiian Islands, which, under the
Reciprocity Treaty, comes in free.
Tliu main points of the report arc as
u Since the trcnty was approved
there has been a rapid increase in
the sugar production from the Sand
wich lblands, ami a virtual substitu
' tion of the high grades for the low
grades known before the treaty. The
hisili Ersdes arc not eutitled.to be
entered into this cimntry freo of
duty. Under the treaty the average
grades of impoitations have riscii
irom Nos. 7 and 10, Dutch standard,
in 1870, to Nos. 12 and U in ihhi.
The grades Nos. 1U and .14 being
neither muscovados, brown, nor
such sugars as were commonly im
ported known as the Sandwich
Iblaiul sugar, as required by the
terms of the treaty, arc not entitled
to free entry, and every pound
should have paid duty. This increaso
in the quantity aud improvement in
tho quality of Hawaiian sugar is the
result of increased planting en
couraged by the bounty offeicd and
the use of improved machinery, im
ported maiuly from Europe. The
bounty offorcil to shippers of sugars
from tho Hawaiian lblands to this
country naturally encourages the
planters that is, tempts them to in
crease their production by illegiti
mate means, such as importing tho
low East India and China sugars and
changing them by means of improv
ed machinery iuto high grades,
which can be imported into this
country as if they were the products
of the Hawaiian Islands.
"The consumer on. the Pacific
Coast derives no benefit from the
treaty. The treaty, as at present
interpreted, caused a loss of 2,500,
000 in revenue to. this Government
last year, and this will be annually
and rapidly increased. Already the
imports of sugar fostered by the
treaty have increased from 17,480,
(582 pounds in 187G to 7G,000,000
pounds in 1881, with absolutely no
benefit to the consumer. It is a grave
injustice to those cultivating sugar
cane in Louisiana, and may at any
time put in question the revenue
now received from sugar grown in
other countries. Tho treaty is an
entire failure in its objects, so far as
it was to benefit this country. It
caijscs an unjust discrimination
. against other equally friendly
nations, which are larger consumers
of the products of this country than
any of tho Hawaiian Islands. It is
a direct attack on the sugar industry
of Louisiana, which should be pro
tected, and in our opinion advantage
, has been taken of it to import, free
of duty, sugars that do not come
under its provisions."

discussed at length. This question
as to the two languages, has been

that " jWhenovor there shall bo found
to exist any radical' and irreconcili

and Hawaiian version of any of the
laws of tho Kingdom, which have
been, or may hereafter bo enacted,

cently been in demand in San Fran"

in August. The, loss, baa becu great

A Prohibitory Liquor Law was re

Honso of Representatives. Indeed,
wo believe they have one up about
every year. This year, after long
discussion, when the Home came to
vote, there was a tie. Thero was nn
opportunity for, tho Speaker to have
saved the bill, but his courage failed
him. The Boston Gazette says that
Speaker Noyes lias been ploughing
with tlie l'rolnlnlory neiier lor a
year or two, with an oyo to tho Gov
ernorship ; but always with a wink to
tne other side. . A cruel fate com
pulled him to declare himself. He
