"WEDNESDAY, FEB. 21, 1897.
Importation of plants autl seeds
must nlwnya bo attended with the
risk of introducing foreign posts.
It would not do to stop such im
portations on that account, be
causo tlion the country would bo
prevented from diversifying its
useful and ornamental vegetation.
The Hawaiian Government did
the right thing a little lute, wliou
it beau a system of inspection of
plants, and some bit lator employ
ed an entomologist to conduct war
against a varioty of pests that had
already got n bad nip on our
vegetable domain. Tho report of
Profeshor Koebele, tho ollicial in
question, printed in last Planters'
Monthly, gives somo idea of whata
formidable war this is. There
is a bewildering list of beetles and
scales, more or loss noxious, for
which tho entomologist has found
or is finding the natural euumios.
He is now able to report: "But
little moro can bo presented in
regard to the introduction
of injurious scale in
sects. There aro but very few
serious species not yet represented
in the islands fiom those ports
from which plants generally ar
rivo. Vo cau see those, and
know pretty well how to deal
with thorn, and where to
find thoir proper enemies."
Somo of tho pests reached islauds
other than Oaliu, and thero is
much nervousness for fear more
may do so. With regard to coHee
blight and sugar cano parasites,
tho euro went from Oahu instead
of tho disoaso. For tho effective
work boiiig clone by our entomo
logist, the sugar caue planters'
organization shares in credit, as it
co oporatos with the Government
in his employment.
THE SUGAR DUTIES.
If the Bugar duties bo changed
from an advalorem to a specific
basis in tho new American tariff,
it will likely be a disadvantage to
Hawaiian sugar as compared with
the present position. The duties
on refilled grades will in that
evont doubtless bo raised and
thoEo on raws lowered. At pro
8iul our raw FHgar has protpotiou
in tho United States only less than
relined sugar by one-eighth of a
cent a pound and tho cost of ro
fining. The difference of cost of
refining is very trilling, but, under
spooifio duties, it is a uhancu if tho
duly on raw sugar will not bo all
but wiped out, while protection
to the American iiMuufaululed
article and rcvonuo both may be
secured by taxing tho refined
eugar of other countries. Under tho
"Wilbuu tariff the sugar duty is
40 per cent, advalorem on sugars
both above oud bolow 1G Dutch
atandard, but with one-eighth of a
cent n pound added to those abovo
thel gradea. At the present market
rates, our sugar" under the treaty
lias protection of $24.50 a ton.
whereas if a specific duty on rawl
sugar bo adopted, and put as low
as half a cent a pound, which is
not unlikely, the advantage or
Hawaiian over othor raw sugar in
tho American market would bo
but $10 a ton. Should, however,
tho reoiprooity olausos of tho Mc
Kinloy bill ho revived, and goner
ally taken advantage of by other
cano sugar countries, Hawaiian
sugar would loso all tho bonofit of
tho treaty, as happened when that
measuro was in effect before.
Horo it may provo that our op
ponents of tho beet sugar persua
sion may prove, unwillingly, to
bo our bonnfactors, as they will
go strongly against any extension
of tho reciprocity idea, whilo tho
argumonfs ngainst tho abrogation
of our reciprocity will, it is to bo
hoped, be powerful enough to
circumvent thoir efforts to that
Thero aro somo kinds of work
on sugar plantations for which it
1h useless to think of ever rolyiug
upon whito labor. Thoy simply
would not stay at it. Other
brandies of work there are, how
evor, for which it is falso economy
yes, and bad public spirit to

The ilurry over Japanese com
petition in this couutiy may have
completely subsided, as some free
traders have been pleased to re
mark, but the fact that Americans
aro ceasiug to interest themselves
in tho mutter 'does not hinder
operations in Japan. Thero is a
commission of Japanese engaged
in the business of inspecting tho
iron and steel workiug plants aud
processes in Euglaud, Germany
and the United States, who will at
the end of thoir tour decido tho
style of pluut and process to bo
adopted in utilizing tho 2,500,000
voted by the Governinout for the
purpose of establishing works
near Sliimonoseki. Tho commis
sion will reach the United States
in a few months, and tho build
iug of the new works will com
mence early in the autumn. -S. F.
