MONDAY, APRIL 5, 188C.
Some interesting discussion of the
Hawaiian treaty, in the East and on
the Coast, is brought by the last
mail. The following from the San
Francisco Post is clear nnd strong
on the benefits of the treaty to Cali
fornia, and tho plain duty of that
State's representatives with regard to
the attempt being made at abolition.
The articlo appeared on March 18
under the head, "Our Representa
Representatives Morrow and Kcl
ton, it is said, favor the cuntiuu
anco of the Hawaiian treaty. This
is natural, as they are in closer con
nection than their colleagues, with
the merchants of this city who form
the Chamber of Commerce and the
Hoard of Trade. Representatives
McKcnoa and Henley are said to bo
opposed to the treaty. If Mr.
McKenna's constituents, who arc
largely engaged in agriculture,
studied up the final destination of
the produce they raise, they would
not lose any time in laying their
side of the case before their mem
ber. Mr. McKcnna is evidently
acting without full knowledge of the
far reaching benefits of this treaty.
This reminds ns that some time ago,
the editor of an iraportat journal,
published in one of the wealthiest
river counties, and who had evi
dently been reading the San Fran
cisco Chronicle, violently denounced
the treaty as of no benefit to this
State. He met one of his subscribers
next day, a man who is not only one
of the largest farmers in California,
but one of the most respected of our
citizous. "Hello! my friend," said
tho farmer, "you arc opposed to the
Hawaiian treaty." "Yes," said
the editor, "it is injurious to the
State." "Don't make any such
mistake, my good fellow. Do you
know where all our light weight
mules go and how much forage we
send after them every month? If
you want to befriend your county,
stand tip for that treaty." And tho
editor has never said a word, wo be
lieve, against the treaty since. So it
only needs some of Mr. McKenna's
farming friends to trace out where
so much of what they raise, outside
of wheat, is finally consumed or
used, and enlighten that gentleman,
and ho will not, wo know, willingly
do anything to injure his own con
stituents. As for the Hon. Barclay
Henley, ho is, or supposes himself
to be, the friend of Barclay Henley,
and we never heard of his showing
much true friendship for any one
else. If Mr. Henley's interests run
or seem to run counter to those of
his constituents, or ho has a grudge to
gratify, the worse for those consti
tuents, aud that grudge will be grati
fied to tho extent of his small ability.
Representatives Mnrkham and Lout
tit arc said to be non-committal;
wise men wait for information before
deciding on which sido to cast their
vote. The latter has got one of "the.
right sows by tho car." He sees,
wo learn, the importance of the
treaty as a political and military
measure. If he studies the matter
further, ho will find tho commercial
benefits of the treaty almost equally
so to the Pacific Coast.
A clipped paragraph has been
handed us from the samo paper,
It is time California bestirred her
self, or the Hawaiian treaty will bo
so overslaughed by Searles and the
Chronicle, that Congress will vote
in favor of abrogation.
In connection with the freight war
between the Atlantic and Pacific,
tho "Shipping and Commercial List
and New York Price Current" says :-
Ono result of this contest has
been to bring refined sugar from tho
Pacific Coast into tho Chicago market
in competition with the product of
Eastern refineries. Granulated has
been offered there at 0 cents f. o. b.
San Francisco, with fl7A cents
ireighl, which was about cent
under the price hero with consider
able sales made last week, but since
then the agents of Mr. Sprcckcls
have withdrawn, and cancelled somo
of their sales, probably because of
.a threatened contest with Eastern
reflnors, which was not desirable so
long as the abrogation of tho Ha
V'aiiaji treaty is under discussion in
Congress. Tho oppououts of this
treaty could scarcely ask for n
stronger argument in their favor
than the fnct that it rendered possi
ble such an unequal contest, which
wns in tho nature of a blow at ono
of the most important of industries,
and likewise n menace to ono of the
largest sources of revenue to tho
Government. Certainly tho con
sumers of sugar derive no direct
benefit from the operation of this
treaty, for, notwithstanding that the
bulk of the raw material worked up
on the Pacific coast pays no duty,
the market price of refined sugar is
uniformly abovo this market, and
yet tho cost of manufacture there is
no greater than it is here.
The San Francisco Merchant hos
another able nrticlc, showing that
the commercial interests of Cali
fornia are entirely with the treaty,
and that the opposition to it is
dictated by Eastern monopolists
who desire to control tho trade of
the Pacific Coast as well as that of
the rest of the country.
A "Washington despatch of March
10 gives an account of the matter
before the Ways and Means Com
mittee, as follows:
Tho Committee on Ways and
Means took up the Hawaiian Recip
rocity Treaty this morning for con
sideration. Mills of Texas read the
report of the sub-committee, which
took strong ground in favor of tho
resolution to abrogate the treaty.
He reviewed the discussion of 187C,
when the treaty was under consider
ation. He stated that tho argu
ments in favor of the adoption of
the treaty at that time were, first,
that it would stimulate exports from
this country to the islands and thus
greatly help our trade, and, sec
ondly, that it would give tills country
a political advantage over other
countries with reference to the
The report states that for the six
years previous to tho adoption of
tho treaty C5 per cent, of tho trade
between this country and tho islands
consisted of imports and 35 per
cent, of exports. For the nine years
from 1877 to 1885, inclusive, tho
imports were CD per cent, and the
exports were 31 per cent. It is
apparent from this statement that
our side of the trade has not grown
so fast as was anticipated by the
friends of the measure when it was
beforo Congress for adoption. The
exports relatively have steadily de
creased, and for the last fiscal year
ending June 30, 1885, the trado
stands still worse against tho United
States, the imports being 70 per
cent, of tho trade and the exports 21
per cent. This enormous balance of
trado against us is paid by this
country in money to the sugar
planters, some of whom live on tho
islands and others in tho United
States, England and German'.
The claim was made, the report
adds, by friends of the treaty in
1875 that the people on the Pacific
Const would get their sugar cheaper
under it. For a number of years
before the treaty tho price of granu
lated sugar was practically the same
in New York and San Francisco,
but since tho treaty was made, in
stead of being cheaper in San Fran
cisco, as predicted, it has been from
1 to 2 cents higher. It is evident,
the report says, that we gain nothing
commercially from the treaty. The
articles which the islands import
from us they will continue to import
whether the treaty is abrogated or
continued. They cannot obtain
lumber, cattle and brcadstuffs so
cheap in England as they can in
this country, and they will continue
to buy in tho cheapest market. They
cannot afford to put a prohibitory
duty on such necessary articles
which they cannot produce. . The
bounty given by our Government
out of the public Treasury of the
Hawaiian sugar producers has stimu
lated very greatly the growth of
population and wealth in the islands,
and of course has stimulated con
siderably our export trado; but
when we see by the returns that we
have remitted revenues amounting
to more than 822,000,000 since the
treaty went into effect, whilo our
exports for the samo time amount to
about tho same sum, it would seem
that wo had paid rather dearly for
our bargain. .
Tho report further says that much
stress was laid on the argument of
187(5 that this country would gain
much under the treaty in the event
of war between this country and any
Europeun or Asiatio power. It was
then claimed that we would havn tho
benefit of a harbor for our fleets and
coaling stations to supply our ves
sels, and that the American influence
in ' the island would predominate.
As for the coaling stations and tho
harbor, tho treaty contains no pro
vision of that kind. Sinco tho treaty
was adopted American infiuenco has
steadily declined. Tho report con
cludes by saying that the treaty
operates injuriously to the people of
tho United States and ought to bo
After tho roport was inado the
commltteo entered into a discussion
of the subject, tho Democrats gener
ally taking ground in favor of the
abrogation of tho treaty ami tho Re
publicans in favor of continuing it,
It was decided to ask the Secretary
of the Treasury for his notes on its
operation. The subject will bo taken
up again for final consideration.
A memorial to tho "Ways and
Means Committee from tho mer
chants of San Francisco, in favor of
the continuation of the treaty, occu
pies two columns of very fine print
in the Attn. It concludes: "A wise
public policy made the treaty; a
wise public policy will continue it if
private interests arc to be subordi
nated to the public good." The
Alia has an article refuting nt
length the assertions of Scarlcs, who
heads the lobby in "Washington
against tho treaty. It shows that
individual's motivo in the fact that
he is a New York sugar refiner,
and lays stress on tho absolute
purity of Hawaiian sugars, while
being particularly severe on the
deleterious products of Eastern re
fineries, adulterated heavily, ns it
alleges, with glucose.
