New York Commercial Says
port. Prices for Hawaii is Dia
crimination Against Rest
of United States.
tSUif! Corrvsyondencc. The Republican
NEW YORK. Oct S. Tho Now York
CommtTcinl follows tip Its artlclo of
October 6 as printed in The Republican
by the following which appears Uils
New York business men were mucn
intoroMed in tho article iu Saturday's
Commercial regarding the desirability
of placing Hawaiian trade upon a domestic
basis, in view of the fact that
the Islands are now a part of the United
States and no longer eligible to receive
.export rates on goods shipped
there trom other portions of the Union.
It appears that there Is no branch or
trade in any staplo manufactured goods
that tlnds a foreign market In which
the question of whether or not Hawaiian
trade- is export or domestic business
Is not causing more or less friction.
The tendeucy of the trade to seek Its
natural channel and flow along through
the saniQ course as business in other
parts of the United States Is very
strong; but it is opposed by a. disinclination
to change business methods,
and break away .from the old idea that
nil business which must cross salt waiter
is foreign business.
Then! are, very few up-to-date business
men who do not readily admit
that the time must come when all Hawaiian
business will be considered as
domestic, but thero arc- many who.
either as a matter of convenience or
with a thought that export prices will
help their trade, are willing to continue
to discriminate against the rest
of tho United States In favor of Hawaii,
notwithstanding the fact that they
have themselves open to criticism for
showing a willingness to sell at le&s 1
than domestic prices In a part of the
rhitod States which has tho same taritf
proK'ctlon as any other part of the
In the Bicycle Trade.
That natural conditions will force tat
recognition of Hawaii as a part of the
United States in a trade way is shown
Uy the conditions -which now- exist la
many lines of trade. The blcyclrade
is an illustration.
Manager Brown, of the export
of tho American Bicycle Co.,
wbja asked whether that company
handled the Hawaiian business as export
or domestic business, said: "Wo
. handle it both ways."
This company has, in a manner at
least, recognized the injustices to the
jabbers, particularly the jobber of the
Pacific Coast, brought about by the
treatment of the Hawaiian business aa
export business. ,
lr. Brown said:
"I my that ire treat it as both export
and domestic bas'lnttfie, because, while
as yet-, ww really regard Jt as 4 export
business, and it is looked after, by thit
department still, of our agents
Boys' Shirt Waists. Low
on the Pacific Coast have Business relations
In Hawaii, and as they con-'
sider it their territory we have.aJlowed
them to handle it as domestic business.
I think that iu time the Hawaiian business
-will be handled as domestic business.
Alaska an Example.
"The Alaska business Is handled as
domestic business, and there is no reason
why that of Hawaii ehould'not be.
I can realize tho difficulties which are
presented by the situation. Of course,
the people of Hawaii have been accustomed
to export prices, and they
are not going to take very kindly at
flrst to a general advance, ana manufacturers
who are anxious to hold the
business recognize the fact.
"In our line tho difference between
the export and the domestic price is not
great, and it really does not make so
much difference. The difference in cost
of bicycles in different countries represents
the ditference -in trimmings
rather than a difference between export
and domestic prices. In some countries'
they demand trimmings which the
trade in another country does not call
"It may take some time for the matter
to regulate itself," he continued:
"but as I said, while we still consider
it as export business, we are endeavoring
to fairly treat our agents in whose
territory the islands naturally are."
