The Honolulu papers givo a
great deal of space to tho discus
sion of the Annexation Question,
aud, woro tho matter left to tho
voters of tho islands, tho union
with tho States would soon bo ac
complished. A largo meoting of
the Annexation Olub was held on
tho 12th JanuarVj which was at
tonded by tho chief oilicorB of tho
Government and by most of tho
roproeoutativo residents of Hono
lulu, many of whom mado most
onthueinstio speeches in favor of
tho project. The courting, how
ovor, seemB to bo almost wholly
done by Hawaii; tho Americans
tliomselves seem much loss anx
ious for tho acquisition of tho isl
ands than four years nco. Stronc
opposition is developing in Cali
fornia where tho success of the
best sugar industry mokes tho in
habitants of that btuto loss eager
for cheap sugar from the Sand
wich Islands. Indeed, although
this industry has grown up and
flourished, in spite of the treaty
provisions which give Hawaii a
free market for her BUgar, the cry
is now that tho beet sugar infant
willdioof theriokets if not speedi
ly treated to protection pt;. Tho
treaty, which went into effect some
twenty years ago, permits Hawaii
to send sugar to tho United States
free of duty and givoB tho United
States certain privileges in re
turn, among them tho possession
of Pearl Harbor. It may bo abro
gated by a year's notico from
oithor party aud mauy Americans
now demand that each notice bo
givon. Tho Ohroniclo of San
Francisco in a loader of 7th Jan
"So inr. tho treaty must bo sot
down as a poor business arrange
ment for tho United States. Wo
are practically taxing ouiselves to
make Hawaii rich, or in other
words are bearing the burden of a
deficit in roveuuo which a duty on
island sugar would help material
ly to repair. Addod to this are
other gravo considerations. Not
satisfied with buying supplies as
far as they can in tho market of
England, Germany, Japau, Aus
tralasia and Canala, tho Hawaiian
planters aro in alliance with tho
sugar trust, and are helping, to
that extent, to keep up sugar
prices in this market. The treaty
also serves to check tho develop
ment of tho beet-sugar industry
in this Stato and elsowhere, evory
pound of Huwuiian sugar that
comes in beiug easily repluooablo
by our own product in case that
product is safe giuuded from com
Tho Eveniug Bulletin, of Ho
nolulu, iu answering this ob
jection states that during tho past
twouty years in which Hawaii has
enjoyed this privilege no objection
on this Bcoro has heretoforo boon
mado. It continues:
"Tho Hawaiian contribution to
the woild's supply, upon which
the value uuivorsal is estimated,
lias never boon groat onongli to
dominate the market. When all
the remaining soil of tlieso islands
capablo of sugar cultivation shall
have been subdued to that pur
pose, tho total Hawaiian produot
will doubtless boar a smaller pro
portion to tho world's consump
tion then than it does now. Tho
ratio of increase of consumption
at tho present time in tho Unitod
States is probably much greater
than tho ratio of inotooso of pro
duction in thoso islands."
An interesting Hrticlo iu the
Chronicle on tho Beet Suaar Iu
dustrv of California shows how
profitable an enterprise it is al
ready, and from figures there
given we learn tliul the United
States produces less than ono
sixth ot tho sugar consumed by
its inhabitants, yet the uigar king
aro likely to succeed iu thair en
deavors to lovy tribulo on tho peo
ple. It is coiluiuly a strange
sight, too, to seo any country de
liberately rejecting tho proffer of
so valuable an addition to its ter
ritoiy, but this has been done once
by the peoplo of the United Statesj
and tho second wooiug by Hawaii
may not prove' moio successful
than tho first.
