SPRECKELS ON THE TREATY

Florin Itln.tlj- inn, ,i,o Cofler
Glaus Spreckels has overy roa-
on, he declared in an interview
yestora7 -says a Fran
cisco Call to believe that tho Ha
waiian reciprocity treaty will bo
abrogated. His confidence in such
an'outcome, he said, wus due to
tho fact that right und reason were
on thb niilo of thoho who favored
the discontinuance of the existing
''.'Reciprocity," ho continued,
"means an exchuugo of beuclits
that have some upproach to being
equal on both Bides. No one, 1
believe, will attempt to controvert
such an interpretation of tho term.
Now, I claim, and existiug facta
and circumstances will bear me
out fully, that tho troaty in fofeo
between this country and Hawaii
is reciprocal4 in name only, aud
that all tho advantages arising
under it aro oujoyod by Hawaii, or
rather tho foreigners resideut
"At tho present time the balanco
of trade between the United States
aud Hawaii iH $8,000,000 per an
num', and no effort is mado by the
Hawaiian Government to encour
age more trading with tho United
States. On the coutrary, every
thing that is done tend to the
encouragement of trade with other
countries notably Canada, Gur
mauy and England. They have
even withdrawu the subsidy form
erly paid to tho Oceanic Steam
ship Coinpauy, an American liuu
which has done more to develop
the islands ,thau uuy other trans
"I noticed a statement in one of
tho local papors that our com
merce with Hawaii was a great
factor in giving employment to
American vessels, and that the
American shipping engaged in
this trallio has a valuation of
$18,000,000. Any one who will
tako tho trouble to look over the
Custom house records can learn
for himself that the value of all
vessels carrying between this port
and Hawaii will not exceed
"Much has been said about the
trust being interested in the boot
sug'ar factory at Watsonvillo aud
of its beiug opposed to the Ha
waiian reciprocity treaty. It is
claimed by the advocates of the'
treaty that if the Hawaiian free
sugar is prevonted from comiug
hero the trust would be able to
shut down one of tho refineries.
That is simply nonsense. Tho
Watsonvillo factory is turning out
20,000 tons of sugar annually, and
the Salinas factory, in course of
construction, will have a capacity
of 00,000 tons. ThuB'theso two
factories aloiio will bo capablo of
manufacturing enough BUgar to
supply tuo people or tho 1'nciuo
Coast, and all this sugar will bo
refined on tho coast.
"But in addition to these facto
ries tlioro are two others, which
produce betweon 20,000 and 30
000 tons per year. All this will
also be refined here, and this will
moan not a curtuiliug of tho re
fining capacity but an inoreaso of
it. It would not pay to ship tho
raw sugar East, have it refined
thore and thou havo it sent back
to tho consumer.
"Tho reBultwill bo the establish
ment of moro refineries in Cali
fornia. And instead of tho Cali
fornia produot being used as a
supply for tho Pacific Coast
States and Territories it will go to
consumers in tho Missouri llivor
territory and perhaps eventually
as far East ab Chicago.
"This means employment in
California of additional thousands
of pooplo, the great ouhancomont
in value of farming property in
tho eugar-boot sections and added
prosperity for tho State at largo.
"Lot mo call attention to a
phase of tho situation that ison
tiroly lost sight of. Wo arc taking
from Hawaii its entire crop of
sugar, which will this year bo
about 235,000 tons, for which wo
will pay in round figures $15,000,
000. Of this product not to ex
ceed 70,000 tons aro turned out by
Americans, whilo tho money for I
inn rumiiinitin nullum (n.in . .;,!
no German and Enulitdi planters
and manufacturers, and out of tho
70,000 tons credited to Americans
45 000 tons aro produced from tho
plantations in which I am inter
ested. Ty yuV- ;n this matter is
prompted simply ana -tiv j,y
desire to see tho sugar industry of
California fostered and improved,
My opposition to the Hawaiian
reciprocity treaty is inspired by
the desire to encourage tho in
vestment of American capital in
this Stuto instead of payiuu mil
lions each year to tho foreigners
not ilawaiiaus who largely
control the sugar product of the
islands. Not even the workmeu
employed on tho sugar plantations
aud in tho factories aro native
HuwailauH, but Oiiiuese aud Japa
nose coolieo unit Portuguese, who
receive from $12 to $15 a month
aud mutt find themselves.
"Those who are btauding for a
continuance of the treaty I am
sure are not awure of tho fact that
tlio money wo pay for Hawaiian
sugar does uot benefit the islauds,
for it eventually mostly flows to
Euglaud, Germany, China and
.Iiujiuj. My contention is that the
money cau be aud should bo kept
in this country, aud this can bo
accomplished by the abrogation
of the existiug treaty with Hawaii
aud. by placing the same duty ou
Lluvfdiiuu sugar that is placed an
uuy other siimlur foreign product.
"Auolhur popular fallacy that
is bciu circulated is that I was
ulways strougly iu favor of this
treaty Thut is uot so. No oue
wus more bitterly opposed to it
when it wus under consideration
than I, and I speut at ono time
about $2800 iu seudiug a petition
with a long list of signatures at
tached to Washington iu 187G iu
opposition -to it.
''At that time I was importing
the raw material from Mauila und
LSatavia aud had to pay duty ou it.
There was a coiubluatiou ut thut
time between the suur trust, with
Seailes at its head, the sugur
pluuters of Hawaii und the owners
of the Ameiicuu Sugur Refinery
of this City uguiust me becuuse I
would not go into the trust.
"fc'or self protection 1 proceeded
to the islauds aud soon became
tho largest sugar-raiser there,
with the ultimate result of not
only bealiug the trust und its
combination on tho const, but of
invading its best territory in tho
East aud erecting a refiuery in
Philadelphia. I have never al
lowed tho trust to coutrol me in
the past aud it does not coutrol
me now. While it' has uu inter
est iu the Wutsouville factory
thut fact still leaves mo an inde
pendent factor iu the sugar mark
et, aud this position I propose to
'Whilo still owuing large inter
ests in Hawaii, I began experi
menting with sugur beet growing
in Culiforuiu, as 1 never felt just
right to have my capital, mostly
made iu California, invested iu a
foreign country. My experiments
proved highly successful aud tho
result is now beforo the world.
"I have sacnticed large interests
iu Hawaii, aud staud reudy to
mako further sacrifices. 1 feel
that I owe my first duty to this
country, und havo ulways endeav
ored to perforin it to the utmost of
my ability. I havo at last suo-
' heeded iu transferring tho major
part of my interests to this Statu,
und the benefits that have accrued
to the commonwealth I think I
can safely leavo to tho people of
tho San Joaquin, Pajaro aud
Salinas valleys to tell.
"I am coufidont that whou tho
pooplo of the United States are
put in possession of the facta con
nected with tho Hawaiion treaty
there will bo an almost unanimous
sentiment in favor of its abroga
