Sugar Is Unprotected
BEFORE the war all that was necessary to set
all "Hawaii by the ears wi4 tO propose the re
moval ot,ffc'e tariff on shgaf im4 yet this is what
has been practically done by the sugar commission
when it fixetf!' price for Cuban sugar f.o.b. Cuba
and a price for Hawaiian sugar in New York with
only one cent a pound, the duty, is" a difference in
the price of. Cuban sugar, plus freight and insur
ance, hi the two prices. Little or nothing has
been heard in comment on this from the sugar in
terests; of the Islands, very little complaint has
been voiced, the general 'public is not yet awake to
the fact and yet the effect is just about the same
as if the duty had been removed, so far as re
turns to Hawaiian sugar growers go. - I
Six cent sugar in New York does not mean six
cent sugar in Honolulu , by a long way. When
freight, the payment of twfr dollars for handling
all Hawaiian shipments, commissions and other
expenses are 'added the figure has been cut down
to the bone. The price for Cuban sugar in New
York has been fixed at approximately $98 a ton.
After making the payments mentioned the net
proceeds to the Hawaiian growervis $87.75 while
after deducting his. shipping expenses the Cuban
grower is receiving $92 a ton, a price .better than
that for Hawaiian sugar by $4.25 a ton. For
Western sugar the returns are larger for the Ha
waiian grower who in the San Francisco market
receive about $5 more than the Cuban grower
does int New,pYork. ( Averaging it up, the Cuban
price and the Hawaiian price net the producer
just about the same for. the raw sugar sold but
the costs? for producing thi Hawaiian' raws have
been much higher than, were those of the Cuban
'planter.' :-.-!: . j. '':.... ;,v-,;,'; '
Here we have to wait eighteen months for our
crop, we.bave to irrigate and large quantities of
fertilizers are required, many times as much as
tlie Cuban lands-require. , It, was to make up for
this the. tariff was levied to protect the Hawaiian
planter.','1' Tp place prfces on a par with the status
.quo -ante irvbnld benecessary for the commis
sions to fix afrke of 4t least 5.90 f.o.b. Honolulu
: for the Hawaiian product.
It is an interesting phase of war conditions that
thiaahould. have "been, 'accomplished without pro
test o.rKthe part of the people of Hawaii and with
a quiet acquiescenceWn their part. ,
The figure given for Cuban sugar represents a
price at Havana "land -opt at all points in Cuba for
the difference bttweeijthe allowed freight , from
Havana and the actnateigfrt from the other ship
ping points, jof the Jslaftdl iwCAbjC has to be ab
sorbed by the Cuban grower and
ed from his net return. In some instances this
' amounts to as much as $20 a ton.
Difficult Tdsk Well Done
IF there be anyone in Hawaii not thoroughly
satisfied with the good faith of those who have
reorganized Hackfeld & Co. as an American firm
through? and through, that person is beyond reason
and incapable of satisfaction. Hackfelds, which
' until two; o'clock yesterday was a firm controlled
by aliens, and alien enemies at that, was turned
over" during the afternoon to a control by five Ho
nolulu Americans in whose absolute loyalty in
word, deed and thought there can be no possible
question. Not only do these five hold the voting
majority on the board of directors, but they have
been able. to associate with themselves on the
board others oft unclouded Americanism, all but
two being American born.
The two naturalized Americans have proven
their sympathy - with the cause of the United
States' against Prussian autocracy and have abso
lutely satisfied those who know them best. Their
presence on the reorganized directorship strength
ens it as an American board, and The Advertiser
says this advisedly.
The choice which confronted those holding the
voting majority of the Hackfeld stock lay between
wrecking the great and historic firm, which has
played so great a part in the development of Ha
waii, wiping it out of existence as Hackfeld & Co.
and allowing its component parts to pass into the
control of varied interests, or of reorganizing frpm
the ground up, transferring through aboveboard
methods the tontrol and placing into the manage
1 nent of the firm men whose patriotic integrity
none could doubt. 'Wisely' the latter course was
chosen. , Hackfeld & Co. will go on, with greater
usefulness to Hawaii and. to the United States. ,
:, The control' has now pasted over frpm aliens to
citizens to the fullest extent permitted by the
Trading With the Enemy Act, with every, pros
pect that the end of the war will see the greater
part of, if not all, the (ierman-held stock sold to
Americans. The next step will be the American
izing bMhe personnel of the employes of the firm
and of "all the subsidiary concerns under the firm.
That this will be done is certain, knowing the men
who jnake up the directorate. That sentiment will
be allowed no place in the weeding out of those
not in their hearts for America
ever the individual hardship involved.
'Hawaii should be well satisfied.

clear, cleancut, distinct and left little or nothing

"Last Christmas day (a year-ago)
we had a party of soldiers in for tea
and supper and I. tell yon we hnd a
nne time or it, as most of the soldiers
were musical and .enjoyed a good
song. In fact it was th beginning of
series of musical eveninga at our
bOuae every Saturday 'for months;
most of those, boys are in France and '
they write te us regularly.
""I had three or four soldiers bil
leted with me 'when the war broke
out, and they ere nit doing their bit;
some have been wounded, but none -
killed at yet. They all say they will
viait ua again. I do hope they will
come through safe. We had an Aus
tralian soldier here for four days'
leave aboat.a month ngo. He had been
in France twelve months and was sent
to England, with trench fever. He had
such a lot tor tell us of tbe life out
there; it waa most interesting.
Bad Christmas '
"We hope you had a merry Christ-
mat though, oat cannot feel .very
merry k when we think of thit terrible
war and the thoutanda. of Uvea sacri
ficed every,, day. Christmastide will
be a sail time in many, many homes.
etui, 1 think we should all be as cheer
ful as possible. , It does one good to
forget, even for' a thort time, the hor
rors of war. ' '
