The mckinley tariffs placed taxes on foreign goods, like the hawaiian sugar.-when the mckinley tariffs placed high taxes on foreign goods, such as the hawaiian sugar, the sugar planters plotted an american takeover of hawaii so that the sugar would be considered a domestic product. in 1893, the planters organized a revolt and negotiated a treaty of annexation with the harrison administration. however, before the treaty could be approved, the cleveland administration rose to power and withdrew the treaty. the cleveland administration took a strong stance against acquiring territory far from america.
