"DEMOCRATS I ROAD THIS!"
THE price of sugar in the United States is lower than in any other
country in the world except England, Switzerland, Denmark,
Belgium and Turkey. And the low price is maintained because
of the competition of the home-grown product with the sugar of foreign
countries. Take off or materially reduce the duty upon sugar, and
you wipe out the sugar industry. Wipe out the sugar industry and
the planters of and laborers on the half-million acres of sugar land will
leave the sugar refiner without home competition and with full sway to
place his own figure on the imported article.
If our main industry (sugar) fails, our splendid school system will
necessarily go with it.
Why attack sugar, which has increased in price less than any other
staple, when reduction of tariff on other commodities would produce
much greater results for the consumer?
Sugar is the one article of general consumption which has not shared
in the general advance of prices somarked in the past five years.
Why? Because of the sugar produced at home with which the sugar
rehnerUhe Sugar Trust) is forced to compete. Take off the tariff and
away goes competition and up goes the price.
1 he whole prosperity material, religious, social and political of
this community depends on the revenues from the great sugar indus
try. Impair the prosperity of that industry, and the results will be
disastrous and far-reaching. The educational system, health supervi
sion, charitable institutions, police regulations, road maintenance,! all
will be adversely affected. Our railroad companies, steamer and other
transportation companies, electric light and other public service com.
panies, iron works and other manufactures all will suffer. As a result
the development of the Territory as an outpost of America civilization
in the mid-Pacific will experience a serious setback and these Islands
will be reduced merely to a strategic fortified military post.
Sugar is Hawaii's life, therefore yours. You have invested $150,000,
000 which is dependent on protect ion. Will you do your part now,
Free sugar will wreck an industry and remove all restraint from a
In removing the sugar tariff the consumer places himself at the mer
cy of an American trust buying its raw material in foreign markets.
The sugar growers are producers. Why destroy them for the profit
of a trust f
In this Territory the reduction of the price of raw sugar by the aboli.
tion or serious reduction of the duty means the difference between
profit and loss. Many of the plantations will be forced out of business,
while a few will just manage to keep their heads above water. This
means a serious reduction in the amount of labor employed, not only
unskilled, but also skilled and semi-skilled.
Hawaii is the youngest Territory,
crushing its principal industry?
Why arrest its development by
SOAK 'EM JUDGE!
AS long as we have police court judges like Judge McKay, of Wai
luku, the public will be safeguarded as regards speeding auto
ists and careless drivers. The sentencing of iov-rider and inv.
u - j j
driver Kalino at the court last Thursday, was in keeping with the
sensible manner m which Judge McKay always treats offenses against
the auto ordinance. The Judge's sentences are the kind that Oahu
needs, and the magistrates of the capital city might, with advantage,
take a leat trom the Wailuku Judge s journal.
There is only one way to put the fear of conseauences into the henrts
of the wild speeders who handle cars while so drunk that they do not
know what they are doing. Send them to jail when convicted, and
that will show the rest what they may expect.
The careful driver has no chance now-a-days. He.or she, may drive
at a decent pace, keep the right side of the road, honk the horn and do
an the things necessary. But.of what avail is that when some drunk
idiot or irresponsible chauffeur comes tearing along at a rate of speed
that is an outrage, and crashes into the unoffending, quiet going
driver s car. boak 'em Judge, soak 'em.
Here, in Hawaii nei, where all races live in contentment and in the
spirit of "Live and let live," the thought of war between the United
States and Japan, gives a great shock to us all. The Japanese of these
islands are our friends, and it would be a thousand pities if anything
happened to rupture the cordial relations now existing.
It is good to see that after all, five teams have decided to play in the
Maui baseball series. It was at first feared that three teams only would
take part in tne season s tun and sport. However, Puunene and the
J. A. C. have come in, and that alters the matter, and makes the series
more interesting to the baseball fans.
Before long there should be a steady stream of tourists headed for
Maui. The scenic attractions of this island are being widely advertised,
and the traveling public of the United States and of Europe will, surely,
be attracted here.
Talk of war with Japan is a disagreeable subject and, as for the con
quest of these islands by the Island Empire, we might just as well hand
the group over without any fuss if free sugar comes about.
Is it not about time that an American Pope reigned at Rome. Or,
maybe, it would be better to shift the Holy See to Vashington and
make that the headquarters for the Pontiff and Cardinals.
