PINEAPPLES AND TARIFF.
The vital Importance of the pro
I lertlvc tariff to the agricultural la
'ditstrlcs of Hawaii Is brought home
foiclbly by tho decisions of the
Hoard of Appraisers In connection
with canned pineapples.
The Interpretation of tho law as
made by the Hoard serves to Increase
the competition with foreign-grown
pineapples to which our product Is
subject. It, means that the foreign
growers with nu Inferior pineapple
may, by the addition of a quantity of
sugar, place a canned pineapple on
the market, passed over to tho con
sumer as "just as good." Hawaii
may bo ablo'to educate the pineapple
consumer t,o that he will know our
pine In tho natural Juice Is better
than the sugar-doctored pine of the
Ilahamas, but it Is a' long struggle.
So the llahama plae, by some hook
or crook. Is made "Just as sweet" the
average buyer docs not stop to ques
tion whether tills Is the natural juice
or the result of artificial manipula
tion. It Is to be hoped that the appeal
taken by the Treasury Department
will result In a reversal of the Hoard
Wo call the matter to the espe
cial attention of our readers to Im
