Mr Chauticey M'Oovern, well known

When a representative of the H u 1-

wonderful Constabulary Hand he
spoko at length. "It Is a matter of
much regret to us In the Philip
pines," he stated, "That the people
of tho Hawaiian Islands should feel
opposed to tho campaign now being
waged In tho United States to grant
the Philippines free trade with the
States. This opposition Is attributed
by us to the one fact that the general
public of Hawaii does not really un
derstand what It will mean to the
Ei cater advantage of Hawaii Itself
for this free trade measure to pass
No Inlury To Hawaii

terests of the Hawaiian Islands. You
Sire already a great, rich, prosperous
people agriculturally. You are al
ready raising and selling sugar crops
to within ten percent of our total
possibilities; and to tny mind with
the establishment of freo trade be
tween the Philippines and the United
States tho demand for tropical prod
Jicts will drift eastward over the Pa
cific away from the West Indies and
South America, affecting tho Hawaii
an Islands In such a way that you
will bo raising and selling at even

It means much more than that. It
means that these same ships will all

goods; with mining machinery; and
with the thousand and one artlclos

commercial basis. There are doubt
less many people In Hawaii who be
lieve that most of the Imports of the
Philippines already come from the,
United States on vessels which stop
at Honolulu, Hut such Is far from
being the case, In reality only a very
bmall proportion of the imports ot
the Philippines come from tho United
States today.- And even If the nur
chasing power of the people ot the
Philippines were not greatly In
creased by giving them rrce trade
with the United States, If the Cus

bring about -reciprocal trade rela
tions between the Philippines and

Greater Purchasing Power
nut It is not uiono ine present im
portations of the Philippines that
would come through Honolulu were
tbe Philippines to have free trade
With the markets of the United
States thus opened up to the products
of Philippine farms, the Philippines
would soon become a country of
great purchasing power. Taking the
cftso of Porto itlco as a parallel, onu
expert (Harold M. Pitt) has mado n
careful estimate that granting free
trade to the Philippines, if It would
Increase the purchasing power of the
Filipinos in proportion as It incrcas-
ed tho purchasing power ot the Porto
Moans, then the Philippines would
under freo trado soon grow to the
mark where It would be using Iron
and steel articles of American manu
facture (for, railways, bridges, farm
ing Implements, etc.,) to tho value ot
129,000,000 gold per year.
'And likewise It is all along the
lines of practically every important
kind of article except shoes, leather
goods and oil Imported into the
Philippine archipelago toda In
stead of-the spectaclojof the United
States heading tho list ot exporters
to the Philippines as It should do, and
as most people supposo the) do, we
find Americans down usually as far
as tho tenth place on the list of ex
porters to the Philippines in certain
lines, and except In the three In
stances named tho United States ex
pcrters, never. rlso to nbovo third or
fourth place, oven under the most
favorable conditions possible without
The most striking Illustration of
this fact 's In the Instance of the
amount of Imports of cotton goods in
to the Philippines. That Archipela
go Imports annually cotton goods to
the value ot somo $8,000,000, Yet
while tho United States is such a
gieat cotton-raising country and po-
senses such great cotton looms, and
while every effort has been made by
ntcrestcd American cotton people to
swing the business to American ex
pert ore, tho American Imports for
13QG wero only about, $000,000; and
for the year ending June 30, 1908,
these Imports of American cotton
goods had climbed only by. $85,000 out
ot total possiblo $8,000,000 ot cotton
Imports for the year, over 52 per
cent of which camo to tho Philip
pines from the looms of Great, llrltaln
alone. During tbe samo period only
nine per cent of the cotton Imported
was from the United States, and such
Insignificant countries as Spain,
Switzerland, Japan, and Germany,
each furnished tho Philippines to
within one, two or three per cent of
tho proportion furnished by the
United States. It Is a fact. Indeed,
that the cotton Imports from Ameri
ca have been on the Increase the
Philippines; but it Is also a fact that
the exports from the, United Kingdom
liaye been increasing by the same
percentage, the countries suffering In
volume ot their cotton exports to tho
Philippines being Spain and the
British Bast Indies, each of which
have sustained the loss of about one
half tholr exports of cotton goods to
the Philippines during the puBt tho
"Thus it will bo seen that oven un
der the present economic conditions
In the Philippines, freo trade be
tween them and the United States
would give the American cotton ex
pollers n Btcndy additional market
for $7,000,000 worth of their i. wares
ovory year. In addition to this it is
claimed by Mr. Pitt that free trade
would so increase the purchasing
power of the Filipino people that
within a few years thoy would bo
purchasing from the United States
cotton goods to the value of over
$25,000,000 per )ear.
