The twentieth century city, accord

familiar rallying cries heard in muni

Imperfect and Insufficient Ideas of tho
nature of municipal problems.
Particularly he does not think much
of tbo demand that business men
should be put In office ns the "natural

fairs." In tbo Municipal Journal Prof. Ely
recalls past campaigns in New York
and other cities In which tho hosts of
reform have been gathered together by
Buch battle cries to do battle for the
salvation of tho municipality, and be

Will tho free entry of Cuban sugar
hurt tho Territory of Hawaii? I be
lieve It will. Cuba In 1894, without a '
free market, mid under Spanish mis
rule, found It profitable to produce 1,-
100.000 tons of sugar at a profit of 10
per cent. and. according to a statement
made by Mr. William llonnct (page
527. Cuban Census), "could have
ground more than that had It not been
for the war."
If she can do so well under such ad
verse circumstances as prevailed at
that lime, what will she produce when
she Is put on more than nn equality
with the American planter? LUtcn to.
what Mr. Itobert I. Porter, special I
nnn.n.l.i.lnn.1. .,.. ( I. ,. ftlln.1 Otntita
limiimoniuiii'i iiuiu tin- uiiiivii oinii'B
to Cuba, says about the possibilities of
Cuban sugar. You will find It on page
523 of the Cuban census.
"With millions of acres of the rich
est and best cano land on the globe
yet untouched by the plow, with a cli
mate unsurpassed for the growth and
development of sugar rane, and with
n prcstlgo for Cuban sugar second to
none In tho markets of tho world, tho
future of Cuba's sugar presents a pos
sibility of wealth surpassing tho rich
ness of the gold and silver which enmo

above by the score, but It seems un
necessary to consume your time to
provo what Is putcnl to everyone who
has studied Cuba's agricultural possi
bilities. With frco markets she can
supply the world, ur, as the compiler
of the Cuban Census says In the con

rural property, the establishment of
banks, and n stable financial system,
n repetition of the crop of 1891 may
soon bo expected, with larger ones to
follow. Indeed, when wo consider that
this crop was cultivated on less than
one-fourteenth part of the area of the
isiunrt (28,000,000 ncrcs), a largo pn't
cf v hlch can be made suitable for fa
gar, some Idea of Its great prospcctlvo
wealth In this commodity can be fo.'m
cd, jrcvlded Cuba Is successful In
finding favorable foreign markets. In
short, It Is perfectly apparent, as has
besii elsewhere r.'.it'l, tnat lin-lrr
such conditions Cuba can easily be
come the greatest sugar-producing
country In tho world."
Having shown, as I believe, that tho
free Introduction of Cuban sugar will
so stimulate the production as to glut
tho American market with free sugar,
let us see how Hawaii could stand tho
taking off of all the duty. Wo have as
n guide tho experience tho Hawaiian
planters went through during tho tlmo
sugar was free under tho McKlnley
Effect of Repealing Duty.
The United States Minister to Ha
waii, In a dispatch to tho Secretary of
State, No. 32, of September B, 1891,
"Tho repeal of tho sugar duty by
the United States has struck the prin
cipal material product of Hawaii a
very severe blow, and with tho most
favorable estimate It now looks ns
though bankruptry m,lsl uo "10 Inovl
table fate of more or less of tho sugar
planting firms nnil corporations."
In confirmation of what I hnvo stat
ed regarding tho cost of producing su
gar In Hawaii, I quote rrom page 7C9
of the Senate Committee on Foreign
Itclatlons' report on the Hawaiian Isl
ands. The witness, Mr. Simpson, says:
"When I was In Honolulu the winter
of 1892 the growing price of sugar was
a business man and nothing else Is
'not equal to tho undertaking, so fre
quently It Is found that with all his de
fects tho professional politician does
as well ur better, because bo has at
least had experience."
Prof. Ely's conclusion Is that there
must be a class of officeholders. The
legislative officer who should exerclsa
n general control and represent tho
community should include men repre
senting nil tbo different Interests of
the city; but the administrative offices
should bo filled by experts with perma
nent tenure of olfico. He regards tho
Mayor as an administrative officer.
This, he says, Is the method In prac
tlco In the best State movements. Tbo
regents, representing tiio community,
see hnt the movement accomplishes
the purposes tho people 01 the State
desire It to accomplish. They establish
a general policy, but turn over the de
tails requiring expert knowledgo to tho
faculty, which has this knowledge.
"The city." Prof. Ely says, "is some
thing far more than a business con
cern. This business concern Idea ot
the city does not, as a matter ot fact,
move the masses of the people suffi
ciently to arouse a great amount of
"We need a broader basis of reform,
and a higher aim, and this Is afTorded

Discusses W- Hawaiian
about $90 per ton. The cause of that
was that the previous crop of Cuban
sugar had been practically n failure
and they were enabled to get a much
better price than they aro getting at
present. The last quotations which I1
received from Honolulu they wero pay.
Ing for Hawaiian sugar laid In San
Francisco 2 7-8, almost tho lowest
prlco It has ever reached, nnd which
price does not pay oven a small Inter
est on tho Investment."
No More Cheap Labor. '
In conclusion I wish to Impress upon I
tho committee tho fact that Hawaii no
longer enjoys cheap labor. In fact, sho
has been put to her wits end during
tho past two years to obtnln sufficient
labor to take oft her crops at any price.
Last 'spring the Planters' Association
tried tho experiment of bringing labor
irom rorto kico. two thousand one
hundred wero Imported at a cost of
about $100,000. It cost ono plantation J
$1.5G per ton of sugar raised to obtain
this labor. Hawaii Is compelled to-l
day to pay for the most Indifferent la-
bor mora than Is paid In tho States.

do wnnt to emphasize, tnough, that It
being annexed and having to comply
wl..i tho American labor and Immigra

Is greatly enhanced In tho Islands;
and It has added another difficulty to
us, and that Is knowing where to get
labor at any price. II is no blurt on
