MINISTER SMITH'S TALK.
More of His Utterances
How Mil American WurHliip
Prvmlel a HiitiHhcr IVoiii
Nol.ing; tilt' IuIiiikIh,
The talk of His Excellency J.
Mott Smith, Hawaiian Minister to
the United States, in New York was
given yesterday from a despatch to
the San Francisco Chronicle. After
going to press we received through
the mall the full interview given hy
Minister Smith to a reporter of the
Mail and Express. In the introduc
tion that paper, speaking of Air.
His sugar interests in the Sandwich
Islands are large, but not so exten
sive as those of the sugar king Claus
Sprockets, who opposes free trade
between the countries. Air. Sprock
ets is a refiner of sugar, and he often
says in his frank way that lie can
afford to lose a few thousands in lla-
I waii rather than sacrifice his refine
ries. Ihe men in the sugar trust
also oppose reciprocity witli Hawaii.
In spite of this powerful opposi
tion ttic Minister is advocating free
trade, and docs not despair of suc
cess. He did not care to name the
men lie expects to meet to-day and
to-morrow, but they have influence
and wilt help to push matters so as
to bring about a treaty that will he,
in the language of the Alinister, per
manent. After the portion of the interview
previously given, it went on as fol
"For fouiteen years the people
there have not produced 'wash' (re
fined) sugar that could be sold over
the counter to consumers, but have
produced raw or unclarilied sugar
whicli has been sent to the refineries
in California and there sold. As the
refiners there have to take into con
sideration the freight on sugar when
sold in the East, the raw producers
in Hawaii have sold it to them and
are now selling it at one-quarter of a
cent less ttian the market value, mak
ing a reduction of nearly So a ton,
which, owing to the low. price of su
gar, leaves scarcely any profit for the
producer. Thai agreement with the
refiners has never been abrogated,
and the producers in Hawaii cannot
now, after so many years, go at once
into clarifying sugar ready for mar
ket. A CIIANOi; MUST HE HltOUGHT A1SOUT.
"If this one-quarter of a cent a
pound reduction is still demanded the
small plantations in Hawaii will have
to ro into bankruptcy. They get a
little over two and a half cents per
pound net for the law sugar, or from
S50 to s5G0 a ton, which is not enough
to pay them for expenses. When the
sugar is refined it sells for one-half
cent more per pound. In fuct, if Hie
present stale of tilings continue at
least 2.1) percent ot the sugar planters
in the islands will have to give up the
business. A planter who makes
only 800 or 1000 tons of sugar will
lose money, and a planter who is
next to him and produces 10,000 or
15,000 tons wilt make money. It
does not pay to raise sugar cane on
a small scale."
The Alinister said labor costs just
as much there as here, although they
chiefly employed Japanese and Chi
nese. They were paid Slf a mouth
and rations. His recollection was
that in Louisiana labor on the cane
plantations were paid about 65 cents
a dayand not found or given rations
In order to make sugar cane raising
pay he declared that the planters in
his country tiad to do two tilings,
viz. : study economy in the produc
tion of the raw sugar and be able to
sell it in San Francisco for just as
much as the sugar planter in Louisi
ana sold his iu New York. He con
"The acreage iu sugar cane, up to
the present, has increased, and the
crop of 18'Jl amounted to 140,000
tons of raw suga-. Until a change
is made iu ttie present treaty the
acreage will decrease, A few young
men, Americans, bom on tneibiaiius,
not dreumiug that tho United States
would ever put sugar on the free list,
went ahead and purchased planta
tions. I can instance some young
men who purchased or bargained for
three new plantations for ?5, 000,000.
They will have to go to San Fraiioin
eo to burrow money and liy to tide
over the present distress.
"But if free trade existed the Ha
waiian Islands would blossom forth
anew. Capital would go there, and
many new enterprises, such as rais
ing pineapples and other fruits,
oranges included, would he started.
1 know that California objects to our
oranges going in duty tree, hut 1 do
not think it would hurt tliu fruit
growers of the Pacific slope. We
have a tropical climate, and raise
fruit all the year round. B.umims
tiro admitted to this country duty
free. Kice, which is also duty free,
sells for five cents a pound iu Hono
lulu, us much us it sells for in tills'
"Muny of the people there, especi
ally the Chinese and Japanese, ob
ject to paying so iii'uch for 'rice when
they can get it for three cents a
pound in their native countries. Tho
I reason It sella for five cents a pound
is that the kingdom, in order to pro
tect the United Slates, placed a duty
on rice as high as it is in this coun
try. Illcc could tic brought from
China and other countries to Hawaii
and then hi ought hero free of duty,
but to forestall such a roundabout
way of evading the customs duty the
kingdom also put on a high tariff.
Wo produce solno 12,000,000 pounds
rico annually, one-half of which
comes to this country."
COMPLAINTS OF DlttECT TAXATION.
Air. Smith said his people had com
plained of tho high direct taxation
to carry on tho government, and the
result was the assessments had boon
reduced 30 percent.
The Alinister spoke about the fu
ture of the Sandwich Islands. If the
United States expected to have closer
relations witli the islands, such as
the position on the map would natur
ally indicate, in the language of a
distinguished American citizen and
official, they would rather have the
islands a garden than a desert. The
people on the islands were friendly
to the United States, and if a change
had to be made in tho future they
would prelcr the protection of ttie
The Minister was shown a des
patch fioin Honolulu, whicli spoke of
the annexation fee line and stated
that the British had no designs on
the islnuus. About the latter he
said that at one time, recently, it
looked very union as if England
would be a'll-powerful in Hawaii, but
fortunately a United States man-of-war
was at, Honolulu, and prevented
a coup d'etat which would Lave given
Great Britain a coaling station.
"It is said that England does not
desire a coaling station iu Hawaii.
What is your idea?"
"Just took at the line of coaling
stations England has in the Pacific,
extending to Auckland, and see if
the Hawaiian IslaudsTln not make a
perfect chain. I do not see any
reason why England should not de
sire a coating station on ttie Islands."
"Would not a coaling station ineau
virtual control of the islands?",
HAWAII AS A STATK.
Air. Smith intimated that it would,
and further, that if the islands had
to become attached to some country
the people preferred the United
States. He I'lought a treaty putting
Hawaii on the same footing as a
State would settle the question as to
which country had a right to a coal
ing station. His pfioplo were all
friendly to the United States, and
considered ttiis country a natural
ally. Another tiling that would natu
rally bring about closer relations be
tween the countries was the fact that
the natives of the islands were fast
decreasing in numbers. When they
had disappeared there would be left
a heterogeneous population, some
Americans, Chinese, Japanese and a
few other nationalities. The big in
tercts of the islands were in the
hands of Americans.
If the autonomy of the islands had
to bo surrendered one thing was
sure, the United States was consider
ed the best friend. The Alinister
did not care to go into the annexa
tion question at length. He thought
free trade between the couutries
should first be established, and then
Hawaii, virtually being a State, any
mind not too opaque could spc the
About leprosy he stated that it
was almost stamped out and was con
fined to natives and Chinamen.
Whenever one had leprosy he or she
was sent to the leper island where
there were some six hundred or more
victims at present. Many people,
lie continued, imagined that lepers
could be seen going about the streets
of Honolulu, but the fact was they
were carried to the island as soon as
a typhus fever case was carried to a
retreat in this city. The lepers were
not exactly unhappy. They were
well cared for by the government and
some of them lived teu and twelve
years. Air. Smith said he had visited
them. At certain times they could
be touched without danger of taking
the disease. Lepers would soon be
few in numbers.
Air. Smith was asked if the report
was true that Queen Liliuokaluni had
heart disease. He said she had no
organic disease whatever and at pre
sout she was iu excellent health, as
he was informed by a letter from his
wife, now in Honolulu.
There is no danger fioin whooping
