Beef Trust Has No Influence On
Prices of Meat
To the Consumers In Honolulu
Hawallans are fortunate In being
beyond the reach of tho American Beef
Trust. There have been no such ad
vances made In the prices of meat In
Hawaii this year as have taken place
on tho Mainland.
Perhaps tlio reason for this may bo
traceti'back to annexation. Under tho
old customs tariff net of tho Provision
ay and Monarchical governments of
thi-so Islands, It was possible to Im
port meat from tho Australian colo
nics and conshler.TDle quantities of It
were consumed here. With annexa
tion, however, the American tariff on
meats went Into forco with the result
that the trade with the Colonies was
rendered unprofitable and our supply
was procured from tho Pacific Coast
over and above what could bo furnish
ed by local stock growers. Tho exclu
sion of Australian meat has tended to
stimulate tho production of-local live
stock, so much so that tho Territory
of Hawaii 1b today practically able to
furnish Its entire meat supply. Inde

which befell Hawaii through tho bu
bonic plague epidemic.
Mr. Pratt has secured for the Senate
Committee on Pacific Islands addi
tional data from tho Treasury Depart
ment covering tho Internal rerenuo
collections In the Territory since Its
admlsslon.'june 14, 1900,' to March 31,
1902. The amount collected was $1C8,
o43.SC. This is additional to the cus
toms duties collected for the same pe
riod, amounting to (2,293,224.33. Tho
expense of collecting customs and in
ternal revenue fees was $192,135.72,

An Awful Shock
Washington, May 12. President
Roosevelt slashed red tape tally with
an energy that shocked departmental
lawyers. His purpose was to prompt,
ly dispatch relief for the sufferers of
Martinique nnd St. Vincent, and so
well have his Instructions been cap
rlcd out that supplies are now on thelf
way to the distressed Islands, and
more will Immediately follow.
The collier Sterling with r.nvy
stores and voluntary contributions Is
believed to have left San Juan for
Fort de France. The ocean going tug
Potomac will arrive tonight at Fo.-t da
France. Tho Cincinnati left Santo Do
mingo this morning for the same desti
nation. The Dixie with $70,000 worth
of supplies will sail from New York
on Wednesday. The Uuffalo has been
ordered to hold herself In readiness to

Gilbert J. Waller, of the Metropoli

knows at the present time where ho
can get four montTis' supply of Island
grown meat on Oanu, Hawaii and Mo
lokal, without buying any meat on tho
Coast. He hopes that this condition
will continue for ever.

to Import, In cold storage, 300 car
casses of beef and J000 carcasses of
sheep by each steamer. Now there (a

same time the Metropolitan company
Is paying $50 a head to the Hawaiian
graziers for cattle raised on these Isl

"The graziers are making good mon
ey now. In 'fact, they nro doing better
than the sugar producers. There Is
more roonoy In live-stock today than
tbore Is In sugar."

details of two Instances other than
