Eveiy man as an individual is secondary to what he is as a

allotted to him. Stcdman,
In a statement made to the Bulletin today, Mr. J. P.
Cooke declares that if the sugar tariff revision is undertaken
on a sound and scientific basis, and after an impartial and
intelligent investigation of the facts, he believes a cut in the
tariff of from one-quarter to one-third might be on the whole
to the benefit of Hawaii.
He points out that it will result in giving to Hawaii's chief
industry, the very foundation of prosperity in this Territory, a
permanence not now possible with the country at large ting
ling with rumors of a haphazard slashing for political instead
of economic and industrial reasons.
The utterances made by Mr. Cooke today upon his return"
from a trip to the mainland are notable for dealing with the
situation in a straightforward manner. In 'speaking as he is,
he has not changed his attitude, for he has' repeatedly made
known'his sentiments in private. What lie says 'deserves the
most careful and serious consideration, and may be regarded
as one of the most important statements made during all this
restless season of tariff revision talk.
While there is no certainty that the sugar schedule is to be
revised, the Taft administration is pledged to revision sched
ule by schedule and Taft seems to be gaining strength
Hawaii, then, cannot begin too soon to formulate a plan that
will place the facts-of production in this Territory before Con
gress in a fair light, and will aid in guaranteeing that when
the sugar schedule is taken up, it will be taken up through
scientific investigation, in which the Federal Government
may deal with HavVali frankly. Statements such as made by
Mr. Cooke will do much to assist in the cooperation "neces
sary to give this investigation adequate scope.

A good deal of exaggeration has
probably accompanied the reports of
this pest to tho coast. Undoubtedly
'the situation is serious; Berious
enough to call forth tho most vigor

ers, shippers and tho government au
thorities to check Its sprend and final

observation as can bo maintained show
that fresh pineapples and bananas nro

likely to bo tho menus of currying the
pest Into the Coast ports.
From California's standpoint, tho
action taken Is doubtless n correct
ono. California has suffered ns few
Stiites have from Insect pests, and the
Uolden Statu prefers not oven to tako

giiniH time, with the board of agrlcul

It Is to bu hoped that this cam

ns to the wisdom of tho course adopt
ed by the nutburltles In keeping silent
so long on tho presence of the pest In
Hawaii, for if general attention had
been drawn to the fact that the lly wus
