OUR TARiFF CUNFEREFlE 1
Hawaii's tariff conferenco li fust
taking shape bo far as the prelimina
ries arc concerned. Tho Delegate, anil
the Governor arc cooperating In a
manner Hint should bring Ilnwnll'B
citizens together In n common cause
if nn thing will. Wc trust that tho
representatives of our agricultural In
dustries will respond promptly, and,
while working up the data necessary
to convince Congress, tuko tho tlmo
to exert a beneficent influence on tho
partlians of the Territory so that
there shall be no serious division on
the tariff In the party platforms to bo i
framed tills fall.
If this Is f.ie age or the joung men
there are somo ondci fill old men in
evidence to proc tho rule.
Tho nomination of Adlal Stevenson
ns the DcmocKitlc candidate for Gov
ernor of Illinois brings to tho front
one of tho political war-horses who
wab so old on his Inst appearance that
not n few peoplo had probably for
gotten whether ho was In retirement
or passed to his final reward.
Steenson was born In 1S35 and
therefore starts out on the present
fall campaign at the age of seventy
three years. Ho hns sened one term
as Vice President of the United
States and was defeated when nomi
nated the second time.
At this distance It is hard to tell
whether Stoenson has been brought
forward for the position of Goornor
because the Democrats need a leader
accustomed to forlorn hopes, or that
his ago and experience recommend
him as the best available material for
a successful campaign to be obtained
from among tho Democrats of his
Mr. Stevenson has always been nn
able and efficient officer of the Gov
ernment In the positions he has been
called upon to fill. It Is to be hoped
that, like Uncle Joe Cannon, Mr. Ste
venson at scNenty-threo Is right in
his prime, fit to carry a vigorous
fight in a Presidential car, and nblo
to stand the sorrows of defeat with
out a thre.it of nervous prostration.
tabllshmentH appears to lime not
fallen off materially, ns the fruit crop
is large mid there arc no predictions
of the pack being i educed. The mil
lions of small buyers liae, however,
used much H'bs sugar than usual.
One of the notable facts of tho sit
uation Is thnt the men credited with
being the keenest observers aro tho
least radical In their predictions. Tho
tone of their comment Is ana of sur
1'ilse that tho market for raws should
have dropped off us It has, and, be
ing unable or unwilling to explain
the cause, they are slow to promlso
a marked advance In tho Immediate
With Hawaii, the general situation
remains unchanged. We nro getting,
ns anticipated the early part of the
season, u very good average price,
and with not moro than 150,000 tons
of this year's crop to be marketed tho
showing for tho 1907-8 campaign will
be ono of the best of our history.
As to tho market for tho next crop,
the reports from the sources of sup
ply aro of a character to glvo somo
color to the argument of tho man
who sees returning good times in tho
States, greator demand, no Increase nt
supply, nnd therefore five-cent sugar.
The conservative man, however,
discounts this happiness nnd draws
the conclusion that If present prices
rule for another sear tho returns will
be very satisfactory. He hopes for
higher prices but Is not confident
enough to make the formal prediction.
SAGGING SDGAR MARKET
Reduction in consumption or at
least a failure of the demand for re
fined sugar to conic up to expectation
Is tho cause given by some of the
best-Informed sugar men for tho sag
of tho raw-sugar ninrkct for tho last
The statistical position, with ordi
nary conditions of trade existing, aro
very favorable, and so far as profit
able prices are concerned tho tone of
the market Is anything but unsatis
factory. Kour-cent fcugar and n lit
tle better Is by no means a price to
cause apprehension. Tho recent fall
ing off In tho price attracts particu
lar attention beuiuhc this was the pe
riod when the enthusiasts promised
that raws would bo soaring from
four and a halt to five cents.
The European beet plantings hnvo
not Increased. The Cuban sugar crop
for tho next season docs not promlso
to reach its old-ttmo figure, although
it will be larger than the last crop.
Consequently It Is necessary to Ionic
elbewhero for the causes of tho down
ward tendency of raw sugar at a time
when purchase for the canning nnd
preserving BcaBon Is In full swing.
Tho three hundred thousand tons
of sugar that will tomo on tho mar
ket from IlussU tho first of Septem
ber has had considerable to do with
depression. Hussla will romo In un
der the Drussols convention on that"
date, and under tho arrangement of
her entry, threo hundred thousand
tons of hor surplus bounty-fed sugar
will be allowed In the European mar
ket. This has, of course, been a fac
tor nnd Its Influence dlstnunted by
the sugar buyers.
In our own country the financial
depression is a definite reality. The
houuewlfo of tho worklngman is not

THE BEST ADVERTISING
Washington (D. C.) Herald
A rather striking demonstration of
tho supremo value of newspaper ad
vertising over all other kinds is given
by tho Hurcau of Navigation, which
spent last jear $50,000. in advertis
ing for recruits for tho Navy. It
was determined to Bpcnd a similar
sum this year, but beforo letting tho
contracts the bureau thought It ad
visable to find out whero It had re
ceived the best returns for Its money.
An Investigation showed that all mag

Tho most profltnblo line of advertis

IHtreau of Navigation got recruits nt

There Is In this Investigation by
the llureau of Navigation nnd its re
sults a most striking lesson for com
merce and industry, which depend for
their profits on being known of tho
people. It Is obvious why the nows
papcr offers so much more profltnblo
a field than any other medium. Part
of the peoplo may read this maga
zine, part may read that, but in this
day and ago practically tho cntlro
population of the country rends tho

Eddie Talt stated this morning
that tho affair Is to bo merely a
round of scientific boxing bouts. Ho
was Inclined to scout the idea that
reports of Interference would Influ
ence him at all.
Mr. Dickey Is Inclined to rcgurd
talk of putting up weight forfeits ns
a weak point In the arrangements for
the bouts which might furnish a legal
handle Ijy which to put a spoko into
tho sporting wheel.
As n matter of fact, however, no
details of tho bout hnvo been arrang

to appear In tho ring nt nil. Thcro
