IIAWkil AND PROTECTION.
All too frequently do the pcoplo of
this Tenltory find that citizens of
the mainland are still sadly In need
regaidlng tho present
and past of theso Islands,
The Milwaukee Tree Press Ib tho
latest example, Whether Its state
ments are tho result of cusscdness or
ignorance may be questioned, but it
Is fair to glvo the Kieo Press tho ben
efit of the doubt.
1 Tho Mllwaukeo paper responds to
in editorial In tho I)es Moines Dally
Capital which wub published some
weeks ago In these columns. The
Capital holds that the sugar Industry
ot Hawaii Is an American Industry
and therefore ontltled to protection
from foreign and Philippine competi
tion. The Free Pi ess Bays:
This all goes to show what a
little fostorlng piotectlon does for
an Infant industry. Hawaii su

States. At nny rate, whether
they needed It or not they had to
get on without It. So did the
sugar planters of I'orto lllu.
Thoc of tho United States had It
before It was given the planters
of the "possessions,"
The further remarks of the I'reo
Press do not count, for the very good
reason that It has started out on nn
entirely erroneous premise.
It Is not truo that the planters of
Hawaii did not need any protection
' for their sugar until the Islands bo
'came tenltory of the Pulled Stales.
The sugar Industry or the Hawaii
an Islands Is the creature of protec
tion from Its very Inception. Tho
fugur industry had the benefit of the
American protectlvo tariff on sugar
(torn 1S7C, which year. represents tho
' beginning of tho profitable produc
tion of sugar In Hawaii. Tho rccl
I proelty treaty between tho United
States and the then Kingdom of Ha
waii went Into effect In tho year
1876. Since that time the raw sugar
of Hawaii has entered tho American
, market fiec of duty, and has thero
i fore derived all tho benefits enjoyed
by tho mainland sugar-producer.
The life of the Industry Is based
on protection to the same extent n
tho cnue-HUgar Industry of Louisiana
and the beet-sugar Industry.
Tho only change that annexation
to- America brought about wus that
tho peimancnce of Hawaii's market
wus established. It was not subject
