History February 14, 2007 Agricultural goods do not have taxes on them but sugar is different, because the demand is so high. 1887, second treaty of reciprocity. There’s also white business men in Hawaii drawing new constitution and force king so sign it. It is referred to as the Beignet government. In 1890, 90% of the Hawaiian economy is from sugar canes. 99% of exports was sugar to the US. The US plays with the sugar market and the congress makes sugar coming into US tax free. Louisiana farmers are mad about this and are given 2 cent bonus on every pound of sugar from congress. The market then collapses. Hawaiian government agrees that they need to get rid of these foreign forces. Queen Lil comes to power in Hawaii afterwards trying to stop this madness from the US government. The senate denies that anything happened. The US has taken over the government and economy of Hawaii and changes its image. New government in Hawaii is not ruled by Queen Lil but by Sanford Dull. The US is so desperate to increase its empire. Central and South America.
