William Welnrlch. at tlin tariff
meeting, stated Inst night: "In a few
months wo will know whether wo enn
grow Manila hemp hero with a Blroiif
lltjcr, anil I believe wo can."
This wan his vlow of una of tha
most Inlcicxtlne topics which cams
up ttiiough tho wholo cenlnR. Ha
waii, piodtictng the hent sisal In tho
world mid with possibilities of sup
pbing tho wholo market of tho Unit
ed States with an amount which will
mean millions, may iiImi becomo a
producer of Manila hemp, tho II neat
After It hud been pointed out that
there aro thousands oC acres through
wlndwaid Hawaii and in tho mirth of
Maul which mn jot ho dowitcd to
this Manila hemp, something of a
damper was put on tho Idea by cmrf
speaker, who mentioned that tho
raising of Manila hemp has been
tiled In tho Kast Indies without suc-
lcks, ns It Is found that tho peculiar
noil conditions of tho Philippines aro
necessary for tho development of tho
Hut W. C. Wccdon. In a speech
supplementing tho statement of Mr.
Wclnrlrli, went on to show tho pos
sibilities of lllicr-prodiiclng In Ha
"Tho ImpoitH of flbcr Into tho
United States within 10 months
amounts to $:i3,n00,000," ha said,
' of which approximately 40 per cent.
Is sls.il. This would m.iko tho valuo
of sttal Imported Sir,, 000, 000 for tho
j car, imtntlng J.'!.", 000, 000 as the
Miluc of lllicr Imports for n year.
"At tho lowest rato which has been
paid licic, G cents per pound, Hawaii
could supply In tlmo the full demand
of the United States for this product.
Tlioio are C00.000 acres of land In
tho Territory on which It could bo
raised. And this would produce tho
icqulslto amount. With prices ri't
tho average, tho Income from tho
sisal which might ho disposed of In
the markets of the United States In a
j car would probably ho $18,000,000.
"Sisal can bo raised in almost nny
roll hero where thcro Is not too much
protlplfatlnii. It can be raited where
other products will grow, und, what
Is more. It can bo produced in soil
where no other product will grow. On
theso coin! reefs, whero there Is not
ulx sheer Inches of sol), It prospers."
He supplemented tho statement of
Mr. Wclnilch that tho sisal industry
now, while It is not In tlin experi
mental stage, Is still too siiihII to need
tariff revision to protect It.

ent wooing of a joiiiir pail-Hiiwnltnn
lady appears to hao been the cnuso
of his trouble
Tho pollco authorities stato that
the joting lady complained to them
that Strauss had last night tried to
compel her to m.iri him at tho point
cf a gun. Aciordliig to tho story
which sho told them, Strauss had first
mot her through the fact that sho
was ono of tho witnesses In tho Wat
son dluircc case, which Is now pend
ing, and In which Strauss represents
ono of tho principals. She stilted
that Strauss had told her to meet him
tact evening in order that ho might
have a subpoena fen oil cm her. Ac
cording to these arrangements, tho
girl met Strauss outsldo tho
Y. M. C. A. building. After
talking over the case Strauss Invited
her to hnvo a uir-ihle, which Invita
tion she nccciitod. During tho excur
sion, so the young l.iclj sns, Strauss
pioduccd a revolver and told her that
he had three shots which ho would
employ unless she consented to marry
him. She temporized with the ind
ent wooer, mid the pair Anally wound
up nt tho residence of tho )oung lady
Here Strauss Is alleged to have
told the girl that un'css sho told her
family that she had mairlcd him he
would use tho gun Sho declined to
do so, and In the meantime nn ollt-
cer, Akokl, who Is emplojcd on tho
detectlvo force, and who llcs In tho
neighborhood, had been sent for.
Tho officer soon arrived on tho
scene. Ho ordered the lawyer to
lenvo tho place After some parley
Strauss stnrted down tho steps, but
when ho was half-way down tho
flight of steps he pulled out tho gun.
Akokl, howeycr, was Johnnlo-on-thc-
spot. Ho Jumped Stiauss and wrcrt-
ed tho gun from Mm, whereupon ho
placed him under arrest.
The gun, an ancient weapon, and
conio cartridges wero taken to tho
pollco stntlon. .Sheriff Inukea stated
this morning that in till probability a
dcfinlto charge would bo plated
against Strauss during the day.
