As every sugar property' of any slzo
Is under corporate ownership, these
figures demonstrate undlsputably that
the American tariff is protecting
American enterprise in Hawaii, and
American citizens are reaping the
benefits to be derived therefrom.
Another popular error is that tho
sugar securities held by Americans
lira either In the hands of the Sugnr
Trust or of the late Clnus Sprcckels
and his sons.
There Is no sugar-producing sec
tion of tho United States whero tho
holdings of the Sugar Trust aro less

Trust Is not represented In n single
corporation directorate and Is more
antagonistic to Hawaii than friendly.
Although the lato Claus Sprockets

THE INDUSTRIAL EDITION.
The 11 it I 1 o 1 1 n's Industrial IMI
Hon for 1909 Is the third Issue of
this character published by this pa
per since 1898, the year Hawaii was
annexed to the United States.
The data for the Industrial section
of this yenr has been obtained with
tho samo painstaking caro ot previous
periods, A representative of the 11 u 1
letln has visited each sugar plan
tntton of the islands nnd gone over
the ground cither with tho manager

managers nnd tho agents of the
properties, und every effoit made to

This shows that the work dono by

and the ordinary dry detail of techni
calities In the field and mill Is bun
dled in an effective style.
Special attention Is, of course, giv
en the suga,r Industry becauso It Is
tho one great source ot prospci lty in
Hawaii. It Is the Industry on which
the financial life ot every menrhant,
every banker, and ovcry otfior Indus
try depends. New enterprises sue

theso branches of Industry, also of
tobacco, rubber, and other of Ha
waii's agricultural products Is de
scribed by persons specially Interest

The edition of this year sets a
higher standard thnn previous years
