BEET SUGAR TALK.
In the previous issue of tho
Bui.i.K'utN a comploto summary
was given of nn article on beet
sugar, read beforo a sooiablo liter
ary society of SanFrancisco.whieh
tho Pacific Bund Press described
as "the most comploto and exhaus
tive discussion of tho sugar ques
tion" yet mado in California.
Whon it is stated that, besides the
matter condensed for our roadors,
tho paper contained much inform
ation on tho cultivation of tho beet
root, this compliment will be more
appreciated. What intoicsts us
of Hawaii is that Mr. Gorbouling,
author of tho article, whose posi
tion ns president of th San Fran
cisco Pio.luco Exchange should
make him a rather high uuthority,
computes a profit of ?2() a
ton on the iimunfaituro of
beet sugar iu California, which
ho shows is equal to 22 per cent on
an estimated capital of $1,000,000.
Also that such an oxpert authori
ty as tho manager of the Airn ratio
factory, while pulling down Mr.
Oorbording's sanguine calcula
tions a trillo on tho scoro of clima
tic vicissitudes, takes occasion to
donounco Hawaiian free sugar as
the main obstacle to the realiza
tion of tho golden picture drawn
in tho paper in question. Mr.
Burr, tho mnnagor referred to, on
ly emphasizes tho warning already
sounded iu the ears of Hawaii,
that tho beot sugar interest of
California is dead sot against not
only closer political relations be
tween tho United States and Ha
waii, but tho existing comuieicinl
relations betwoeu. tho two coun
tries. Its antagonism to both tho
presont and future interests of
these islands ought to bo mot with
strenuous argument both on the
Pacific Coast and at Washing
ton. That all icason brought to
bear on tho other side of tho water
is not so useless ns some people
hero, who glory in tho conceit of
a tiauscendental "pessimism,"
would hnvo us beliovo, there is not
a lack of evidonoe to prove. Accord
ing to tho private roport of a
gentleman who heard tho paper in
question road at its original in
troduction, a spirit of revolt was
strongly manifest in tho audionco
at tho idea of makiug tho beet
sugar industry a special pot for
invidious favor among nil tho
varied interests of the country.
This goes to show that thoro are
people on tho Pacific Coast who
cannot bo doprived of their mental
balance by evou such a seductive
portrayal of unbounded wonlth as
tho essayist on that occasion rep
resented as only wniting to bo do
volopod in the beetroot producing
resources of tho country.
At tho sumo time, it would be
foolish for us to regard 'ho oppo
sition of that intorest lightly.
Largo capitalists and mn of
'strong political influence nro at
the back of it. Tho case is not a
dospoiato one, however, for a cam
paign of reason. California is not
going to bo ablo to supply west of
tho Bockies with all tho sugar it
wants for somo time to come.
While its enterprising pooplo nro
striving to renchi that mark, it is
for us in Hawaii to show in tho
eloarest light possible tho benefits
of tho Hawaiiau connection to tho
Pacifio Coast. It is in older for
us to ask tho boot sugar interest
of California liken iso to show how
it is goiug to got rid of Hawaiian
competition by abolishing our
treaty advantages, or by gottiuc a
bounty on its own product, or
both 'together. The American
markot is ours naturally, and
hdwover high it comes wo kavo
got to liavo it. Put embargoes
upon tho admission of our sugar
thoro aud you only stimulate our
producors. Break off tho present
connections and our sugar will
still go to you, and your
pooplo will uso it aud pay tho
tax on it, while to oven up
mnttors our planters will
break up moro ground for cane,
and hire cheaper labor than over
tho cheapest they can got by
scouring tho globe for it. You
had us shut otT from the benefits
of tho reciprocity tieaty by tho
MoKinloy bill with its fieo ad
mission of othor foreign sugars
and ti muuifici'tit bounty to your
own. With what result ' To get
dividends our planters, thitheito
satisfied to leave well enough
alone, had to iucrease their
ncreugo of cane, pay moro atten
tion to scientific culture" nud
manufacture, and drnw upon tho
teomiug millions of Japanese
without btiut for cheap labor.
Now our sugar interests are
stiongor than over, .far better
ablo to stmd setbacks in your
market, and, in tho opinion of
somo of Iho meu most heavily .in
terested iu sugar, oven able to
defy tho worst you can do us iu
legislation upon either tarill or
trenty. You know your own peo
ple thoso of the wholo Union
would not tolornto n prohibitory
duty on fotoign sugar at this
stage of tho game. This ia the
style of language wo may hold
toward our California friends if
they choose to make war on tho
Thero is a still bettor line of ar
gument to pursue, though, and tho
cuo to it is found, for ono place,
in tho very reasons given the Cal
ifornians why thoy should devel
op their beet sugar resources to
tho utmost. Reference is had to
iucidontal boneiits. Tho Hawaii
an connection has been n multi
fold bonefit to tho trade and in
dustry of tho Pacifio Coast and to
manufacturing citios ovon to tho
far east. The largest section of
maritime commerce that the most
profusely displaying tho Anion
can flag, which frequents tho har
bois of the Paoifio Coast is tho dir
efit product of the Hawaiian con
nection. Not only have tho ship
yaidB of tho Coast been often
kept from stagnation by the build
iug of fino vessels for the Hawaiian
trade, thoy hnvo received but no
small amount of work iu building
steamers for tho internal traflic of
theso islands mado latgo by their
commercial relations with thoUnit
ed States. Hawaii has, moreover,
beou moro liboral in direct sub
ventions to American stoam trallio
to Australasia, highly lucrative to
American merchants, than thdAin
Best of all, it is for us to presont
to tho ppoplo of tho Pacific Coast
reasonB to show them that it will
bo to their advantage to get rid of
Hawaiian competition by huviug
it mado Hawaiian co-oporation,
by tho admission of Hawaii to bo
an intogral part of the Union.
This would at onco enhance nil
tho incidental ndvfcitages just
described, bosides getting away
with elomonts of the competition
boforo mentioned which are dis
tasteful to the American pooplo.
