I'nr the present tho wool tariff Is
occupying the undivided attention of
the tariff tinkers and the real trouble
for sugar will not begin till well Into
next year Tho Investigation now be
ing made of the sugar trust opera
tions Is ubsombling u lot of facts to
be used by both sides, but no legis
lation nerd ho feared at tho cxtin
ordinary session of Congress.
Meanwhile the outlook Is not so
black as might bo represented.
Reduction of tho tariff on wool
will reduce tho revenue of tho com
try and make more Impressive the
necessity of letalning the-tariff on
sugar wlh its sixty millions of rev
enue that Is needed In the conduct ot
tho (lot eminent.
Furthermore tho crop returns
throughout the States anil the general
condition of the country during tho
next six mnntliR will lint a much to do
with tariff legislation.
It has been suggested that tho
present hot waves that nro sweeping
over tho country bid fair to havo n
wry serious effect on the great btnplo
crops. If this proves true, history
will be repeated In showing that tho
hand that rules tho weather arid tho
crop returns is In league with tho Re
publicans uuil tho protectionists.
Liugh ns wo may, it Is neverthe
less quite true that short crops and
consequent hard times will bo ro
llcctcd In tho tariff legislation, or tho
lack of It. Hard times aro ulways
charged up to Congress and havo
been coincident with gains by the
These are general conditions that
President Toft is regarded as fav
orable to tho sugar tariff, and tu havo
the olllcor who wields the eto power
on your sldo is a great factor.
Hut more powerful than tho Pres
ident or tho weather of tho west and
the crops that may influence public
sentiment, Is the lighting force ot
sugar producers who will contest ev
ery step toward the destruction of
their Industry, anil reduction of tho
duty on raw sugar means practically
annihilation of the sugar beet Indus
try of the northern and western
States and also the sugar cane Indus
try of Loulsianu.
Sugar is today tho cheapest rom
niodlty thut the working man uses,
trust or no trust, and.lt seems cry
doubtful that tho American people,
onco they know tho facts, will support
a policy of tariff reduction that will
wipe out an Industry without giving
to tho consumer the slightest Im
provement in tho prlco ho pays.
Hawaii must then bo ready to fight,
and light with tho conviction 'hat tho
causa of tho raw sugar tariff is by no
mcaus a losing ono
DAMAGE FOR BAGGAGE.
