Opposed to llfivvniiiin in a recent interview Congressman
Progress. Fitzcrald, tho New York Dpnmcra-
tic member of the Congressional party, said. "It is probable tii.it
the duty on canned tropical fruits from tho West Indies will bo
abolished during tho next session of Congress. lie stated that
such a measure is being talked of favorably by members of Con
gress, and ho believes that a bill to that, effect will be introduced
and that it lias a itur cnatice ot oping passed. mere lias been a
movement for some time to have such a bill introduced and passed
by the House. It will take all duty off canned fruits from the West
Indies, and those consist principally of pineapples. It was dis
cussed during the recent session of Congress but owing to the
lack of time the bill was not presented. There seems to be a favor
able sentiment in Congress regarding the passage of the bill and I
would not be at all suprised to see it become law.
These statements were made by the gentleman shortly niter his
arrival and we hope the needs of the Territory have been so fully
brought to the attention of the members of the Congressional party
that if any ono of them favored the measure before coming hero
that he has changed his views since he has seen what is most need
ed for the advancement of the group.
What is most needed ior tne iimericanizmg or tno Territory is
not the cutting up of the large sugar plantations but the develop.
ment of industries that may be profitably carried on by indepen
dent holders of small tracts of lands that are now practically idle
While this is a matter that many are skeptical of it is beyond ques
tion that if tho tariff remains on tropical fruits the pineapple in
dustry will soon be of immense value to those interested in their
culture. If Congress would put a reasonable tariff on coffee and
maintain the same permanently it would be put a few years until
there would be thousands of Americans operating such estates and
making of the idle lands valuable holdings.
There is no reason for sending millions of dollars annually to
Brazil for coffee and many thousands to Jamaica for pineapples
when our own Territory could be made to supply the demand for
many tons of these products.
While we get some of our supplies more cheaply from foreign
lands than we can produce them the tariff system of the United
States has made possible the manufacture of many articles that
we could not have developed except for th's syste-n. It has made
possible the development of certain agricultural lines that other
wise would have remained dormant, thus giving employment to
millions of people who otherwise would have been out of employ
Free trade with the United States would doubtless benefit the
negroes of Jamaica and the citizens of Brazil, but what interest
have we in them?
Does not charity begin at home? Is it not our duty to provide
for our own first and then aid others afterward?
If Congress will maintain the tariff on sugar and tripical fruits
and place on the plotective list coffee and such other products as
we may be able to develop the question of Americanizing the Tor
ritory will soon solve its self. Otherwise tho criticisms of the past
must necessarily follow.
Od Saturday last at the resh ence
of Mrs. Wm. Seaiby, the Puunene
Reading Club entertained Mrs. J. N.
S. Williams, and some of her friends
at a luncheon. The invitations were
issued for Saturday the 18th, but
owing to the fact that several of the
members and guests were entertain'
ing the Congressional party it was
postponed until tho following Satur
day. Under the direction of Mrs. Searby
her spacious dining room was cleared
and tables in the form of a U were
arranged. The decorating com
mittee then converted it into a
veritable bower of flowers and ferns,
the verandah was artistically draped
with the Stars and Stripes aud
Hawaiian flag, the color scheme
(the Club colors) of yellow and green
was very tastefully carried out on
the table decorations. The cards
designed and painted by two of the
members were very original in the
shape of a small green book (repre
senting the study book of the Club)
containing suitable sketches and
quotations for each one.
The guest of honor Mrs. Williams
looked very charming in her leis of
mailo and ilima, sniilax aud ferns,
entertwined with nasturtiums the
emblematical flower of the Club.
As each guest arrived they were
adorned with a lei, the members be
ing distinguished by wreathes on
Tweuty six sat down to the daintily
prepared viands, a toast was given
to Mrs. Williams aud some verses
written especially for the occasion by
Mrs. Margaret D. Black of Kohala
were read ou behalf of tho . Club of
which the following were the last few J

Before leaving the tables Mrs
Searby played a selection on th
orchestelle, tho guests then retired
to the verandah where they were en
ter tained with songs and other selec

Last Friday evening, the 24th, the
Makawao Literary Society met nt
the residence of Mrs. J. J. Hair of

teresting. 1. Piano Solo Miss Sabey.

carriage of passengers. Of course
the voyage between here and the

of travel is an element of prosperity
to a community, and it would seem
to be a tnistnke to hamper this com
munity in that regard for some sup
posed benefit to the national-shipping
interests which lamentably fail in fur
nishing such transportation.
"I have not heard any reference to
Hie labor situation in the Territory
since our visitors arrived. It Is a
pretty vital subject for us. Although
a good many of us r re not sugar
planters nor sugar ngents nor suirar
barons, and entertain a lively hope
lor me near development ol diversi-
lied industries, yet wp all recognize
the fact that sugar is so great a part
i f our production that the financial
situation a' the present time js
tiendent on it. Wc have to recognize
the fact that much of our extensive
outlay for th? introduction of labor
has gone to enrich California, and
that more of it will so result unless
we give the laboring man who may
become a citizens a chance to acquire
an interest In the soil. in other
words, to share with him a part of

we want to be protected and because
their construction will bring money
Into the country and because their
defense will bring men who will have
to be fed and clothed. We may trust
the Federal Gavernment to look after
this matter as its interests are even
greater than ours.

Messrs, Foss, Flemming. Reld, and
1 ne young ladies were parried in
short dresses f.nd aprons and wore
their hair in braids. The men were
attired in blou-e waists. One naughty
boy when nsked to spell Guinea, to
the teacher's consternation produced
a live Guinea pig from his blouse.
The school made a great '"hit" as
far as amusement was concerned.
Singing by the quartet closed the
entertainments excepting of course
the uual refreshments.

And if you have not paid your durs
to the Maui Racing Association
please do so ut once. We need the
money to make a successful meeting
on July 4th. It certainly looks that
way now, A number of new horses
have shown up iu the last week and
people are taking more than usual
interest in the coming races.
Upon the success of this meeting
depends the future of racing on
Maui. As the horso owners and
patrons of honest spart have only
one day in the year namely July 4th
it would be greatly appreciated if the
people up country would not get up
any contra attractions for that day
out would attend the races here as
they have Christmas, New Years
Thanksgiving Aug. 12th Indepen
donee day aud a host of others.
Come all ye lovers of sport and
enjoy yourselves to the fullest meas

you are going to assist with a horse
or your presence, or whether you are
going to be a knocker Maui at. pre
