It Is only when a crisis arises that
the people of Honolulu really get to

The opportunity now offers for the
local government with the assistance
of the community to exerclso Its ever
prominent paternal power by adopting
the "Plngrce plan" for fiirnlsshlng
work for tho needy. The community
Is In duty hound to house these people
and to establish separate camps or bar
racks so that those llrst released from
quarantine shall not be brought In con
tact with those mor! recently removed
from Chinatown. It Is equally neces
sary that able bodied men shall not bo

THE SUGAR SUPPLY.
(San Francisco Bulletin.)
An Eastern exchange jays that the pro
duction of beet sugar In Nebraska, Iowa,
Illinois and Michigan Is Increasing at a
rate which promises a battle royal with
the Sugar Trust at no distant day. 'I he
output of the Illinois anJ Michigan factor
ies this year Is ? 2,000 tons. Most of the
beets raised In these two States average
from 14 to iO per cent of saccharine mat-1
ter. The standard in Germany, the greatest!
beet producer In the world, Is 12 per cent. '
The continued prosperity of the beet-sugar I
Industry depends upon the ability of the
beet-sugar producers to compete with the
cane product of the tropical Islands with
In California, where the Industry Is
mote advanced than in any other Stale,
the opinion of growers Is that protection Is
needed. Sugar from Hawaii Is now admit
ted free, and Porto Rico Is exrvioK to be
placed on the same trade basis. Whether
the Philippine Islands will be anne.ed,
and thus be allowed free admission for
their products into the United Slates, de
pends upon the future action of Congress.
At piesent, and probably for some years to
come, Cuban sugar Imported Into the
United States will be taxed. If Cuba
should vote for Independence Its products
would be subject to the same rates of duty
as the products of other nations; but If It
should vole for annexation, trade would
be free between the United States and Its
According to the latest reliable reports,
the Cuban sugar crop for the year will ag
gregate about 440,000 tons. Tills is an In
crease of 100,000 tons over the crop of
last year, and of 220,000 over the crop of
180697. The gcln will be more marked
next year, as thereare now no disturbances
which threaten Industries. Cuban would
speedily recover her former product of
1,000,000 tons a year If the American mar
ket should be opened to It free of duties.
As the consumption of -sugar In the Unit
ed States is In round numbers 2,000,000
tons a year, a Cuban yield of 1,000,000
tons, with the sugar-beet crap, the Hawai
