THE ISLAND INDUSTRY
t WASHINGTON, May 12.
Press Cable) Delegate
Kalanianaole, in a strong 'speech
On the floor of the house, in committee
of the whole yesterday,
urged the representatives not to
enact the free sugar clause of the

of the Pacific slope.
If free sugar becomes the law,
he declared, American labor will
be driven from Hawaii and the
Islands will be turned over to
Asiatics, the only ones who could
make an agricultural living from
