Honotulu must plan for big ships
and big rargoos In providing for the
Adil to the berthing accommoda
tions outlined In the Wukelleld plan,,
the proposed transportation and pipe
line along the front, and we have the
secret of all bucccss In every lino of
endeavor, tho saving through In
(inlck dispatch of cargoes and
prompt and Inexpensive scrvlco for
the jfteamshlps calling at this port Is
mid should be the aim of all harbor
It should also bo liorue In mind
that the Wakefield scheme foresees
ami provides for the day when bond
ed (warehouses will be in demand and
become an asset In promoting tlio
busluess of tho port.
TAFT AS VOTE GETTER.
With the opening of the Itooscvclt
boom as 11 candidate against Presi
dent Taft for tho Republican Presi
dential nomination, thn New York
World lias delved Into tho records of
tlj,o past to determine the relative
ote-gettlng capacity of the two men.
The assumption Is made with good
reason that the next Presidential elec
tion will bo determined In tho States
oftlNew York, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois
In 1904 Itooscvclt polled SMl,r,l3
otes In Now York; In 1908 Taft
In 1404 Itooscvclt polled flOO.OO.',
votes In Ohio; In I '.MIS Tuft polled
572,3 li., .,.,
In 11)01 Roosevelt polled 368,289
votes in Indiana; In 1008 Taft polled
In 1901 Hooscvelt polled G32,Cir,
votes in Illinois; in 1908 Taft polled
In 1904 Roosevelt polled 321,449
otes In Missouri; In 1908 Taft polled
Taking theso live States together,
Itooscvclt polled 2,781,991 votes to
Taft's 2,7C9,ri07, a dlffercnco In Rooso
clt's favor of only 12,484.
"Mr. Roosevelt, however," com
ments the World, "was running
against Juilgo Parker, who proved to
bo tho weakest cnndldato tho Demo
crats ever nominated for President.
Mr. Taft was running against Mr.
'., wl, l'olle(1 ",oro ,oto', tlmn
' ever before cast for a Demo-
cratlc Prcsldeu'tlal candidate In the
llvo States referred to, Mr. Bryan In
1900 hud polled 2,313,835 votes, but
Judge Parker four years later polled
only 1,926,918, showing that 386,917
Democrats' In these States who sup
ported Mr. llryan In 1900 .refused to
support Judge Parker In 1901. Yet
with this tremendous advantage In
tho mutter of opponents, Mr. Roose
velt In 1904 received only 12,484 moro
votes than did Mr. Taft In 1908."
Bo It nppcars from this, that, while
not discrediting tho popularity of Mr.
Roosevelt, President Toft Is n vote
getter of the first onlor when It comes
to a lough light. Admittedly that Is
what tho president Is up ngnlnst now,
und It Is one of the situations in
which he has always made good.
SUGAR AND HIGH LIVING COSTS.
Except for bis llly assertion that
Hawaii employs "contract" labor In
tho production of sugar, li correspond
out writing fpr tho Amnricnn Sugar
Industry, published In the Interests of
"Why lslt," queried tho fair widow,
"that they always say a man 'plnos'
lor a woman?"
"I supposo," growled tho fussy
bachelor, "It's hecauso plno is about
the softest wood there Is."
Willis: My son was spending sic
much -itt collcgo that I told him ho
must cut somo of his luxuries.
mills: Did ho do It?
Willis: Yes; he writes mo that lie
has been cutting glasses over slnco.
the beet sugar cause, gives somo very
interesting mid accurate data regard
ing the price of sugar to tho consum
er In the United States.
It Is well recognized that sugar has
advanced In price less rapidly than
any other food product, until the sen
sational Jump occasioned by the
drought In Europe.
Tho writer iiuoted says: "Until
recently sugar In Ihls country has
been the lowest-priced food commod
ity of equal sustaining pdwor.'' Even
now, beans, for Instance, cost-moro
than sugar pound for pound dry
weight, when placed-upon tho' tabid.
'The sugar bills of tho American
people amount to '$3.10,000,000 u year,
or moro than $1,000,000 per day for
each working day In the year.
'Why do not the American pcoplo
produce all the sugar they consume
In this country?
'It Is well known the source of'sug-
ar production In this part of our coun
try is entirely from beets, and If tho
crop wero Increased to 1,500,000 tons
Instead of the present 800,000 tons,
there would not bo tho least neces
sity for going abroad for sugar.
"The high cost of living is no niy'th,
hut sugar Is responsible for no part
of It, for the, following nine articles
which themselves have, ndvnnced
steaTIIIy In the last fourlcon years,
each of them would buy much moro
sugar In 1910 than In 1896, as shown
In 1910. In 1896.
Ten bushels corn would .
buy ......, 131
Ten bushels ' wheat
would buy 249
Twenty bushels oats
would buy 188
Twenty bushels rj'c
would buy 330
Twenty bushels ' pota
toes would buy 133
Duo 1200-pound steer.
would buy ,'y 2065
Olio 300-pound hog
would buy 669
Twenty pounds butter
. would buy ... 130
Thirty dozen eggs
would buy 162
"Sugar Is one of tho fow coniniodl
Ilea which has becomo cheaper ns the
yeurs have rolled by. In 1876 the
wholesale price of sugar wus 10.7
cents per pound; In 1880, It was 8.81
cents per pound; In 1890, 6.27 cents;
In 1900, It fell ns low as 5.32 cents,
whllo in 1910 It camo down to 4.97
cents u pound. Look ut the recent
history of Bugur prices. With n short
ago In Eurnpa prices went soaring.
When the beet sugar factories of tho
country began the munufucturo and
marketing of their crop, and not until
then, prices went down tlie toboggan
and haven't stopped yet.
"In 1876 when sugar was 10.7 cents
per pound, and In 1880,' 8.81 cents, tho
tariff was 4 cents per pound. In 1900
tariff was reduced to 1.95 and tho
price was 5.43 cents; In 1910, with tar
iff at 1.90, sugar went down to 4.97
cents per pound, the reduction In
price being much greater than the re
duction in tariff, showing that other
Influences had tho grcutcr effect, for
Instance, home production of beet sug
ar. Coffco which Is admitted free of
duty to this country has doubled In
price tho last year. Ilect sugar is the
only competitor tho refiners have, and
supplies half tho sugar of the world.
"Nowj suppose that instead of the
llplled proportion ut present pro
duced ut hoinotho United States was
producing all tho sugar consumed
