TARIFF PROTECTION AND COEAP
"I should like to express my
opinion on this 'tariff piotectlou,'
and cheap alien labor combina
tion, it seems to mo that even
ITle most rcputnblo citizens can
not help detecting something self
ish In It. If wo must have a high
tariff lii older to keep down for
eign competition, why not employ
eltuen labor In preference to
aliens? Hut, no. In order to save
tho sugar Industry we must liavo
statics, and thus develop the Isl
ands, ami those who ilnro to say a
word against this method of
Americanizing tho Islands may bo
considered enemies of the Terri
tory." The 11 u li c 1 1 n has hioken Its
usual rule ilgalnst anonymous com
munications by giving publicity to
the foregoing which camo to this pa
per signed "cltlzon labor."
Tho man who wroto It Is cither Ig
norant of tho rulo ngalnst anonymous
communications, or a coward, or a
sneak, Absiimlng that ho Is honest
in what ho says, thcro is no good
. reason why hu should not attach his
nnmo to tho statements. His letter Is
given publicity becauso It expresses
very common mlsifndci standing or
There la moro or less, selfishness In
' tho combination of tariff piotectlon
nnd cheap alien labor. It Is tho
"solflshness" that Inspires a man t
strlvo to"llvo when his enemies want
him to die the selfishness of sclt
prcbervntlon. , Wo all want tailff protection and
high-priced citizen labor. Thcro Is
no doubt of It. Somo day wo hope to
get a larger proportion of cltlzon la
bor with the tariff.
, For tho present, Jut usj consider
facts. ' ' , y
Tho present tariff on raw sugar, of
the grado which Hawaii produces,

.If our friend will tuko tlio number

Islands under present ulnbor condi
tions for-the llvo years beginning
with 1903 nnd onulng with 1 you, nnd

about 3u per cent, of the tariff pro

on tho actual sugar turned out and

The Inquiring mind may go far
ther and ho will find tnat with tho
present alien labor mid the tariff
wiped out possibly two sugar plan
tations In tho Islands could pay n
four per cent, dividend. Tho others
would bo operated at a loss nnd go
out of business.
This Is not an effort to make fig

It must bo admitted that Hawaii's
main Industry must have protection
to exist and bo nblo to employ labor
of any character.
We fully agree with tho contention

The effort inado nnd the money ex
pended for Kuiopc.m Immigration Is
the evidence that should help con
vince the man who seeks for n sign.
Congress In its wisdom amended
the Immigration law In a manner to
in event Hnvvall from soliciting Im
migrants In Jim ope. Hawaii sought
nu exception to this Inw that
would enable tho work to go forward.
Tiio campaign of misrepresentation
recently caused the defeat of tho bill
framed for the advancement of tho
citizen labor In this Territory.
Falling In this, tho Territory of
Hawaii, supplied with funds contrib
uted from tho sitgnr Industry, has
employed an ofllcer specially recom
mended by citizens of tho mainland
to act as an Immigration agent In
mainland centers where tho Kuio
pcans arrive and from whence they
may he transported to Hawaii.
We know Hint tho man, who sign
ed "citizen labor" nnd not his name,
may say, "Aw, this Is nil buncom.
The sugar batons are trying to pull
tho wool over tho eyes of tlio'publlc
whllo they bring In moro Aslntlcs'.''
He may say what ho will, this Is
the way and the only way In which
this Territory nnd Its citizen labor
can got the full benefit of tho pro
tective tariff nnd balance tho over
whelming labor 'power of tho alien.

A declaration that every skilled
position on the sugar plantations
must bo filled by a citizen would
bring every plantation to a stand
still, becauso under present condi
tions every Unskilled non-citlzcu
worker would drop his hoc, and llvo
off the fat ho has accumulated dur
ing years of prosperity.
Reduction of the tariff would also
bring the plantations tcj a permanent
siopping-piacc, as tlio nvcrago price
of unpiotcctcd sugar would not re
turn enough money to pay running
These reforms must bo brought
about gradually. A ruin and mis
representation policy make them Im
possible. Tho selfishness of bolf-prcservatlon
and a decent regard for tlio blessings
of prosperity should lead every citi
zen nnd every resident of theso Isl
ands to fight for tho maintenance of
tho present protective tariff on pres
ent protected agricultural products.
Thoy should do moro: A tariff
