When we buy the manufactured

Hawaii's Prosperity nnd rapid
American development depends on
continued tariff piotcction, and tho
vote of the people in November should
be a demonstration of where Hawaii
Untitles nnd market are not lacking.

Is tho amount of our purchases from

two Millions n year. In 1908 Hawaii
Imported merchandise from Japan
