AMERICANS WHO ARE LOYAL.
The mi'ti luhocatltiB tlu policy of
surrendering the Antci Ivan murchniit

I rltlc to the alleged fait that they
wire able to nsxemlile ono humlrcil

whU.li they had iirogrameil anil plat

l un without a general protent from
tho men who would stand by the KI.tR
on the wnteiH as well as the land.

CALIFORNIA AND HAWAII AND
The extreme confidence with which
certnin citizens of Hawaii declaio
nothing they do in disturbing pro
teeth o measures for shipping will in
terfere with the tariff protection for
our agricultural products, has been
already commented upon. Tho II u I-
I o t I n loes lonfldcnce when it op
erates advisedly This paper must,
however, doubt the ability of ocn
our keenest local minds to forecast
the future with such exact accuracy.
The lows of Senator 1'erMns hno
already been made public, although
a strugglo was mode to suppress
In this same connection an inter
view with Congressman Needlmni in
-.-.- .. c.- - -
inference to tho tariff on Cullfornla
products Is enlightening. Mr. Need
ham, who Is u member of tho W'njs
uud Means Committee, Bald:
"Of course, In the case of tho
Philippines we are bound to re
spect the wishes of Mr. Taft to a
considerable extent, und so, I un
derstand, an agreement had been
i called whereby we will allow
:i00,00ll tons of rnw sugur to ho
Imported Into this country from
tho Philippines each jear free of
"Similarly nn agreement has
been leached for tho ndmlsslou of
a certuln amount of free tobacco
from thoso islands inch jenr.
"In regard to protection for
California, my position ns n mem
ber of tho committee that Is fram
ing the hill Is somewhat emkur
rnsslng "The other members of the
committee have the interests of
their own localities to look after,
but they have, in almost every
instance, been obliged to make
concessions against their own ter
ritories. "In tho caso of California, not
only Is no concession agreed tp for
' n lowering" of the tariff on nny
article produced in tho State, but
In many Instances nn Incrcaso of
the present tariff Is demanded.
"When tho question of tlio duty
on thcbo articles comes up the
1 commltteo naturally looks to me,
' and I am In tho position of being
obliged to stand out for no ton
cessions of any sort, while tho
other membcis of the commltteo
" nro making such concessions ns
'' their localities inn bear and In
return getting such benefits as
may be possible in tho now bill.
"I am sure that Cullfornla will
.- bo well piotectcd In tho new bill,
but the committee may outvote me
and decide that California must
contribute to a share in the gen
eral concession for a lower tariff,"
California Is not Hawaii If, how
ever, that powerful State Is likely to
be outvoted in Its tequests. Is theic
particular cause for tho Territory of
Hawaii to feel free to securest! many
exceptions as It pleases and expect no
complications in the' tariff protection,
