TARIFF CONFERENCE FOR HAWAII.
What are Hawaii's business men

We are prompted to ask this ques
tion on account of tho very timely
example that has been' set uy tho
Promotion Committee of the Stato of
Recent mails bring tho circular of
the California committee calling tho
representatives of all industries
throughout tho Stato to meet In tho
promotion headquarters on July 10,
' to map out a deflnlto plan of action
on tariff matters."
Tho general custom of this city
and this Territory has been to wait
until tho sugar planters hate moved
nnd then follow In their wake. There
is no particular harm in this, but we
believe It will be better for tho peo
ple, better for tho sugar planters, and
better for tho general welfare of the
Territory If the progress of tho main
land cities and States Is followed
enlist tho cooperation of all indus
tries. Our readers will doubtless recall
that at the last besslon of Congress
tho Ways and Means Committee was
authorized to conduct a special In
quiry Into tariff matttors, presumably
with a view to the future rovlslon.
How far this Inquiry will go In tho
midst of a National campaign is in
Hut tariff discussion and tariff ro
vlslon Is In the air. It is coming.
And tho advice which Is given Cal
ifornia "that It Is deemed advisable
to havo representatives of all Cali
fornia Industries affected by the tar
iff or likely to bo affected by a' now
tariff prepared to present the claims
of the various California Industries
before the Committee on Ways and
Means of Congress during the sebslon i
beginning next December" applies
with greater forco to Hawaii.
It would bo a splendid and very
sensible, departure from tho natural
f order of thing if tho Hawaii Iro-j
motion Committee wcro to call a
meeting of all interests within this
Territory for a tariff conference, nnd
for that conference to be dominated
by such a spirit of toleranco and
community unity that every now and
every old Industry shall have a hoar
ing and the presentation mado to
Congress ho of mich a nnturo that It
will represent ovory present and de
veloping Industry of Hawaii.
There Is no doubt of whero Hawaii
stands on tho tariff. We must havo

People who believe that n Jury
' trial Is not the perfection of justice
' will And something to please them In
the long explanation Governor Wlll-
son of Kentucky gives for pardbnlng
t. It will he remembered that Powers
was accused of complicity In the mur
der of Governor Gocbcl of Kentucky.
He hns been tried many times, ro
eelved the death sentence three times,
nnd finally on his latest rc-trlal tho
Jury disagreed ten for acquittal and
two for tho full penalty of tho law.
Governor Wlllson epitomizes his
conclusions for exercising tho par
doning power with this paragraph:
Thcro lit very little hope of over
having a Jury trial of this case In
Kentucky without political ques
tions uppermost In tho minds of
tho court and rount.el, nnd be
cause of this tho strugglo of tho
defendant, with no means oxcept
thosd given him, against tho
whole power of tho common
wealth, I feel It n duty to end
this futllo struggle, tho anxiety,
distress, .and -wnsto of time, mon
ey, and care, nnd take nway from
both parties tho bone of conten
tion; to do all that I can to ro
Htoro peace to the State.
