; The nBrcemcnt between President

This Is not tho llrst time that the
President and the Wiijb und Means '

A bill carrying provision based on
a similar understanding wa at otto

It did not pass the Senate.
There Is n Iouk rii.ul to bo travelled

Arc tho Philippines to be given free

free ships for transportation and an
Independent tariff schedule on Im
ports from foreign countries, a tariff
schedule that gives the foreign manu
facturers an advantage over Amoil
cans? Thcso nro matters that must bo
thoroughly canvassed before tho final
vote is taken. The Philippines have
been pressing their cause in tho name
of Justice. The country will depart

but bearing none of the responsibilities.
It must not bo forgotten that tho
Philippines Is one of tho smallest
purchasers In the mainland markets
Possessing many times greater area
'and manifold opportunities for devel
opment, tho PHILIPPINES during tho
nlno months ending with September
1908 purchased merchandise In tho
past. There Is Ho doubt that history
will bo repeated In llio future.
Honolulu has great opportunist
In the egg market. Statistics art
i given by the Department of Com
imcrce and Labor showing that dur
ing tho month of September 1908 e
Imported from tho mainland 1 11,13 1
dozen eggt valued at $3147. and for

MR. TAFT'S PROMISE
If Hawaii didn't huvo n cloud on
the horizon, It would not bo happy.
Whllo building the new Honolulu,
however, try to get rid of tho habit
of forever looking for tho cloud.
Why not try tho experiment of say
ing that Honolulu has more and bet
ter American passenger steamer
stopping hero than any other port in
the world? There Is more truth lr
this than there Is In the constant com
plaint that we have tho worst.
This tariff business Isn't scttlol
Don't forget that togcdior with l
fnlr crop of sugar, tho glad New
Year brings the poultry tdtow, evi
dencing tho rise of tho hen.
Tho foolish man says In his timid
heart, "It's a good llmo (o sell."
Exceptions) to tho coastwise laws
nre likely to start an epidemic of ex
ceptions less fnvorablo to tho men
who want to Bee n change.
That agreement nbout Philippine
sugar Includes very prominent citi
zens of tho Hcpubllc, but wo hardly
expect tho program will bo rushol
through without a hearing.
AVe hopo llio Supremo Court deci
sion Is first-class law. To havo block
ed tho Mayoralty recount would ltnva
been a public misfortune.
In n speech at Greeley, Colo., Octo
Ler 2d, Wm. It. Tnft, then Itcpubll
can candidate for President, defined
his position on tho sugar tariff, nnd
declared himself In tho plainest pos-
slblo terms n friend of BUgnr-bcct
growers and In favor of adequate pro-i
tcctlon for tho beet BUgnr Interests.
"I understand you .aro Interested
hero a good deal In beet sugar, nnd
I also understand that soma poopla
hnve intimated that I was ngnlnst
beet sugnr. I deny it.
"I would, not do anything that
would Injuro tho beet Industry In any
way,, nnd tho Kcpubllcan platform
pledges tho Hepubllcnn party to take
no action which will not leave ade
quate protection for the beet-sugar
Mr. Taft hero referred to tho Dem
ocratic platform pledgo to put trust
made products on tho frco list, and
"Wo say to regulate tho TruslB, to
stamp out their ovll, but not to pun
ish tho Innocent with tho guilty
not. In order to bring tho Sugar Trust'
within tho law, to destroy tho farm
ers who ralso beet sugar, tho men
who work In tho bect-sugnr factories,
and tfio Innocent beet-sugar produc
ers." If Mr. Taft can't hurt llio beet
sugar growers. It Is Impossible for
him to injuro Hawaii.

Contrary to tho piovolllng opin
ion, Hawaii has no axo to grind
against tlto Philippines,
This Territory might well object
nnd our people do object to llio 1st-
nnds of tho Orient gaining all tho
cmolumonts and assuming an indul
toslmnl share nf tho burdens whllo
trying to put bomu of our Industries
out of business.
Tho II u 1 I e 1 1 n bclloves that a
reduction of fifty per tont. In thu
tariff on nil Phlllpplno sugar would
bo more equitable In ovory respect
.than legislation placing a limit on
tho number of tons thnt may outer
