Asks Congress For
A Joint resolution was prcrcntcd In
tho House Wednesday nftvrnon by Rep
resentative Shingle 'nsklng Congress
to protect Hawaiian coffee from the
competition of tho duty-free bean
grown In the older coffee countries nnd
sold nt prices which make hard sled
ding for the Hawaiian farmer who
pliiB his fnlth to coffee. The effect of
tho imrosltlon of n tax on tho foreign
grown hrtlcle, the resolution snys,
would be to mako It possible for the
growing of coffee In Hawaii to become
n largo nnd prpspcrous industry.
Shingle's resolution in full is as fol
lows: "Whereas, Tho Congress of the
United States Is nbout to consider tho
revision of tho law relating to tho tar
iff on Imports; and
"Whereas, Tho country Is commit
ted to tho prlnclplo of a protective tar
Iff, which shall also produce n largo
proportion of the nccoBsary revenues
of tho govqrnmcnt; bo it
"Rcsolvclf, That tho following facts
bo laid before Congress for considera
tion by it in connection with said pro
posed revision of tho tariff law, vli:
"I. At tho time tho present tariff
law was enacted, the United States
owned no coffee-producing territory,
necessitating no duty on coffco as n
protcctlvo measure; and tho current
revenue was sufilclcnt without Impos
ing a tariff on coffco for rcvenuo only;
consequently coffco Is now on tho free
"2. Slnca tho enactment of tho pres
ent tariff law tho United States has
acquired n largo nrea of coffcc-produc-Ing
territory Is., tho Philippines.
Porto Rico, nnd Hawaii.
"3. It Is our understanding nnd be
lief that, with n protcctlvo duty on cof
fco of, say, six cents ier pound, thi'so
.three groups of Islands could profit
ably produce coffco 'enough to oveutu
slly supply ii largo proportion, f not
tho entire contuinptlon, of the United
"4. Wo aBk that fiom u protective
tariff standpoint consideration ho giv
en to protecting those Industries which
nro peculiar to tho tropical portion of
tho United States, ns well as to those
which are tho products of the main
land exclusively. The chler Industries
which como under this cateenrv nro
,tho production of sugar, coffco nnd
piuenppics. a uuiy, protcctlvo ns well
as rovcnuo-produclng, Is already levied
upon sugar and pineapples. Wo nsk
that coffco may also rvct-lto recogni
tion in this respect.
"5. Asldo from the purely protec
tive feature of tho suggested duty, wo
submit that no bIiibIo Item among the
wholo list of imports, presents n better
opportunity for securing so largo n
revenue with so small n tax on Indi
viduals as will n duty on corfce. A
duty n( six cents a pqund on coffee
would produce n revenuo of between
$60,000,000 nnd $60,000,000 pur annum.
"Wo submit, howovor, that there is
every reason to bellevo that Imposing
tho suggested Import duty uimmi coffee
would not result In raising the price or
coffco to tho consumer, or would result
but In n slight Increase. Tho reason
for thlK belief Is, that Ilraill, tho
world's chief sourco of supply of cor
feo, now levies an export tux on all cor
feo exported from its' jwrts, of approx
imately flvo cents a imunil; tho same
having been Imposed Immediately after
tho United Stutcs placed coTfeo on tho
. "iu other words tho Import duty on
coffco formerly collected by tho Unit
ed States, Is now collected by Ilraill,
tho price of coffco remaining un
changed. "If tho United States now rclmimscs
pn Import duty Ilruzll will hao to
lopcnl Its export duty, In wholo or In
greater part, for the Industiy in llnull
cannot nffoid to puy both dulloa. Tho
toffee business of'llrazll Is mi enorm
ous tliut to ruin It ns the Imposition of
a double duty would surely do, would
preclpltuto such n flnancla! cisibIi u
would sliake tho credit of that coun
try. Tho Ilrailllan governmont simply
cannot stand tho pressure. With the
repeal of the export duty tho pilco of
toffeo would remain approximately the
samo, tho only chnngo .being that tho
United Statos, Instead cf Brnsll, would
oncu moro bo collecting tho duty.
"Under these circumstances, wo sub
mit that, as additional rovenuo Is need
ed frqm Homo bourco", the foregoing
facts show that a duty on coffco would
"1. In a very largo rovenuo to tho
United States Treasury;
"2. In n slight, 'If any Incroaso In
price of coffeo, which would bo prac
tically unfolt by tho consumer;
"3, In Incldonlally protecting n
now Binall nnd unprotected Industry,
with tho ultimate propped of Its u'.
coming a largo and prosperous ono, the
profits of which would nccruo to Amer
ican eltlzons Instead of to foreigners.

Cznmlkow, Mncdnugalt R. Co. report
ns follows on the raw sugar market,
undec date of Feb. It;
Our last report was dated 5th Febru
ary. This week's report Is issued n day In
ndvnncq owing to tho Lincoln's Illrtli
diiy holiday tomorrow.
Tho raw sugnr mnrkct has shown
snmo activity, but this activity Iiiih
j been nt tho expense of prices which
had to give wny .03c, to 2.25c. c. f. for
Cubas, before refiners would resunio
buying. It cannot bo said that tills
decline wns unoxiiccted, for It Iiiib been
evident for some weeks that during
this month and next, the available sup
plies would bo far In excess of refill
cts' wants, nnd that, as they bail al
ready bought on n liberal Bcalc. they
were lu n jHisltlon to bob! back till
selling pressure brought about Its iih
nal result of lower prices, but the mar
ket Is decidedly firmer nt tho clixtu,
nnd offerings of Cubas nt 2.26c. c. f. or
of Porto Itlcos at 3.61c. landed, appear
to linvo ceased for the present.
That tho market has In nil con
science gone low enough Is evident,
for if our refiners had to resort to
Europo or Jnvn for their supplies they
