Delegate Kuhio, Honolulu.
Have been successful in canned and fresh pine
apples. Conference Committee adopted House provisions.
T. II. Petrlc, secretary of the Ha
waiian Plnuapplo Growers' Associa
tion, In BoaklnB of tlio situation, said:
"Tho telegraphic dispatches re
ccUed today, Indicating that tho tar
iff schedule on pineapples, hoth fresh
and canned, had provallod In tho Con
ference Commllteo as originally re
ported in tho Payno Bill recently Intro
duced Into tho House, is n sourco of
gratification, not only to thoso direct
ly Interested In tlio plncapplo Industry,
hut nlso to tho community of tho Is
landH at large.
"From recent nihlces after the orig
inal schedule had heen modified hy tho
Senate, It Bccmed ns though tho hopo
nf having tho samo restored to
tho l'nno Bchcdiilo was In vain, nnd
In tho schedule of duties, and compris
ing what Is known as tho Dtngloy tar
iff, was, on fresh pineapples in barrels
or other packages, 7 cents per cubic
foot, and $7 per M In bulk; on canned
pineapples, preserved In their own
juices, 25 iter cent ad valorem, and,
preserved In sugar, 1 cent per pound,
and 35 per cent ad valorem. The rate
as provided In tho Payne bill, and
which finally, provallcd In confcrcnco
and which will undoubtedly becomo
law, is, on fresh pineapples In barrels
nnd other packages, or In bulk, 8 per
M straight; nnd, on canned pineapples,
If preserved in sugar to any extent, 1
cent per pound, nnd 35 per cent ad va
lorem: If preserved In their own
juices without the nddition nf sugar,
25 per cent ad valorem straight. In
tho results In conference certainly re-. tho lnstnnco of tho fresh pineapples,
fleet great credit on our rcprcscntn- with rofconco particularly to tho
lles In Washington, as well as tho Dlngley jato of 7 cents per cubic fool,
great Influence which was undoubted- It Is cstirintcd that tho comparatho

Iff under tho construction placed upon
tho clause cmbodjlng tho schedulo on
canned pl.veapplos, tho United Stntca
Court of Appeals had rendered a deci
sion that preserved pineapples pre
served In tbclr'own juice, with sugar
added up to about 31 per cent, should
bo admitted under tho lower rato, viz.,
25 per cent ad valorem, being properly
classed as pineapples preserved In
their own julco only. As this allowed
tho foreign artlclo to bo preserved
with sufficient sugar added thereto as
to compare with the quality of pine
apples packed In the United States,
and to bo brought in at tho lower rato
of duty, tho Intent of Congress In at
tempting to place a protcctlvo duty on
this particular artlclo was ineffective.
This discrimination was felt largely In
connection with the Importation . of
Singapore pines, whero tho production
of samo la carried on with extremely
cheap labor, and In competition with
tho high protcctlvo duties paid by tho
American packers and producers on
such articles as tin, sugar, etc., being
cBscntlally large commodities used In
connection with tho packing of fruits.
"In tho preliminary discussions lu
connection with1 the preparing of thn
Payne" Bill, full data nnd statistics
were prepared by the Hawaiian Plnc
applo Growers' Association, and briefs
filed with the Committee In Washing
ton, with the result that the schedulo
ns originally framed under tho Dlng
ley tariff was Remodeled, that there
could bo no misconstruction placed up
on tho samo to tho effect that all
canned plncappfes presorted In sugar
to any extent wtro subject to tho rato
of duty or l cent per pound, and 35
per cent ad valorem. This rato paBscd
tho House with) a good majority, but,
upon being discussed In tho Senate,
tho Item was modified to tho extent
that canned pineapples presencd In
sugar to nn amount not exceeding 25
per cent were permissible to bo Im
ported an'd classed as plncnpplcs pre
served in their own juices and admit
ted under the 35 per cent ad valorem
rate. Strong efforts wero mado to
havo this modified in tho Senate, but
without avail, and, ns stated above",
