It Is not often thnt we enn say here, Hint wo nro
having ns flno weather ns could bo desired, but such
is tho case, nnd under such circumstances Ililo
district Is 11 very pleasant plnco to reside. Tho
cano-flolds hero aro looking vory duo. Tho young
enno, 11 largo part of which lms been planted in old
land, on which bono meal hns been used, is grow
ing beyond nil oxpoctntiuns. Tho fields look bet
ter than somu wo have seen planted in virgin soil.
Tho (mention that has so long bothered tho
planters hero scorns to hnvo been answered in tho
splendid condition of tho Ileitis on which this
manure tins been used. Tboy hnvo been forced,
on tho oldor plnces, to plant wny up into tho woods
nt n great oxpenso to secure 11 fair crop, while the
old Imid has lain idlo, when it could hnvo been
planted mid cultivated at about half tho cost, if it
could have been force d to produce n fair yield.
Jjitstjo.tr was a bed ono for planters hero ; nil
Nature seemed to combine in im effort to ptodue'o
it fnlbirt- of orops. 1 think it safe to say, that tho
yield was over one-third nnd pirhaps uiie-hilf
short of the thtim.itc. Tho crop now about to bo
cut will yield per aero much more than that of last
year, but had it had a fair chanco in tho last half
of tho yctr past, it would hnvo been far superior
to what it now is. All our plantations oxpect to
bo grinding within tho next thirty daysnnd nil tho
sugar, with tho exception of that from l'.ip-iikou
plantation which ships direct to tho coast, will go
to Honolulu. I havo often wondered why it is
that thu peoplo in Honolulu will not nllou their
sugar shipitd direct from heio to S.111 Francisco,
aiids.no a freight of from three to five dollars a
ton, to say nothing of tho wenr mid tear of hand
ling and 1I10 endless exj elites oftiausfcr, rcbag.
ging, etc., in Honolulu. 1'erhaps tho reiunil: of a
prominent member of ono ot thu firms largely
interested in sugar that ho "would not r.cn -pi tho
agency of a plantation out of debt" will explain it.
I notieo 111 last week's Gazette an article in
illation to thu treatment of tho Norwegian people
heio by oin' sheiiff. I wonder who "iu-piied"
iiiMb luvvi', tuiii l wuii. m woiiuer 10 soo now no
Gazilte will treat tho novvs that went down to it
last week. Tho I.ikelHe on tho 13th brought up
our good friend Marshal Parke, also tho Norwe
gian Consul, 'who enmo to investigato into tho
Norwegian trouble hero. They w cut to l'npaikou
J limitation nnd mado n thorough investigation, tho
ilnrsluil being there two days. Wo suppose in
tiino wo shall hear what his roport is to tho Hoard
of immigration whoso agent ho was. Tho Mar
shal, nt tlio reipiest of tho men, lias had ono of
tholr number appeal his ciso to tho Supiemo
Court as n test case, tho men agreeing to remain
ntwork until tho ease was tried. Tho Marshal
returned to Hilo elated nt his success nt making
poaco between tho men and their employers. Tho
peace ho had established was of short duration.
On Monday morning to tlio siuprlso of everybody
seventy-nino Norweuinus anneared in Hilo. claim
ing they had no contract with Hitchcock & Co.,
and never had mado any. They wero arrested
tried and convicted of refusing duty ns per their
contract. They refused to pay tho fines ami return
to work, and on tho Courts ordering it, tho Mar
shal promptly put soventy-nmu of them in tho
same jail that ono week before, according to tho
Gazelle, would not huld fifty-seven; n littlo cour
age was alt that was wanted and tho jail would
hnvo been plenty largo enough to havo held twico
the number who wero not nrresled but whom war
rants had beeti sworn out for. Tho manly bear
ing nnd decided action of tlio Mnrshal piovented
nil trouble except some little? talk. After remain
ing in jail 0110 night und day tho Marshal compro
mised with tho men, they to return io labor, nnd
ho to leniit tho fines and no costs to bo collected
until nttor tho appealed caso had boen tried.
Whr.t right tho Marshal hns to set nsido 11 decision
of 11 Court of tho Hnnuiinn kingelom and remit its
fines I do not know, but tun Buro that ho hns douo
what ho thought was right nnd for tho best inter
ests of all concerned.

enjoy a littlo rcoroition after n week's woik on tho
plantations. Tlio clerks me busy behind tho
counters, tlio billiard tablo is mouojwlized by two
bprightly young whito men, nnd a number of in
terested spectators Aro crowded around tho tablo
wntobing tho progress of tho gnmo. A nntivo rides
recklessly through tho ono strict, with n wild
whoop, strongly Buggestivo of intoxication.
Tho efficient Deputy Sheriff nnd his satellite, n
dapper littlo policeman, isbtandlngon tho verandah
of tlio principal store, watching n haolt who has
a pair of baddlo-bags on his horse, said haU be

tho corner, awaits his turn nnd after de-positing
his three dollars, comes back with a bottle openly

Doputy Sheriff, who,
litciiy i'ltvortlo from tno Keopor of tho billiard
saloon, not caring to bo so public ns to drink with
theso men on tho open verandah.
Ho is boon after engaged in playing cards in a
corner of tho billinrd saloon with a small party of
friends, when 11 native with 11 bottle of liquor con
cealed in tho slack of his woolen shirt approaches,
and informs him thut ho thinks a uhiteiuauU
going to bringdown somo vkolthau pretty soon to
"Very well, let tue kuow when ho comes, and
you Mr. Fawn," turning to tho policeman who is
standing nenr, " Watch out sharp, but do not nr
rest nnjone without n warrant."
After nn hour's bad luck nt enrdn, ho vrnlks with
his hands in his pockets to the door, in timo to see
n innn throwing ntt empty Imttlo over tlio fence.
" What wns in thoro, Mr. Crouch ?" ho enquires
sharply, nnd Aiceivos tho airoloss answer,
" Any left ?"
"No I it is all gone."
"Who did you buy it of? tho mini with saddle
bags?" "Not much I thoro is not ntiv whltemnii who can
make so good liquor ns that; almost puro alcohol,
Hindu from kl root."
"Was it tho real genuine stuff?" nuxioiisly iu
eiulres tho wido-nwnko Deputy Sheriff.
"Oh yes, better than that 1 gavo you n drink of
last Saturday night."
"Is there none left ?"
"No J I think noli Ho only had six dorens,
and tbero were only eleven left when I got this."
"Who brought it?"
" Why, you kno.v him. The kanabi who brings
it every H 1tnr1l.1v night from Wainianu."'
"Now." snjs tho Ucpiily Sheriff, assuming 11
parental attitude, "vt.11 must do better tlian this '
"There 13 11 certain liquor do tier who has suri
ntisly offeiidid me, unit unless you mend your
ways, 1 shall subjHeua you as 11 witness against

"JJon'tl" implores Crenchy, "I will givoyou n
drink out of every bottle I buy. I forgot you this
time, but do not nsk mo to inform on any one."
"Oh," says tho Deputy Sheriff deprecitingly,
"I don't caro for n driufe every time, but wliuu
you chanco to havo something good, I would like
11 littlo occasionally ; ' then turning to Mr. Fawn
liu continues with an anxious tone. " Wo must
do something soon. Wo havo utmost drank np nil
wootptured at tho Inn seizure, and If wo do not
uinko it r.tiso soon wu will havo nothing to drink."
"Sir," says Mr. Fawn, " thoro is Fre'd stretched

pointed him out to me. Had I lir-ttrr nrrcst him ?"'
'No, no; don't notice him; ho it one of Gills'

Eni-ron Satumiat l'r.nss; Allow mo to criticiso
your remarks nnd thoso of Mr. Armstrong on Hin
doo er nn I hnvo boon nccustomod to hear it
spoken of, Coolio labor. Yoq basoyoar opinion on
accounts Rivon by rosidonts nnd travellers in Indin.
I havo not been in Indin, but, if thoso nccounts nro
correct, tho Coolio nt homo is n different man from
tho Coolio immigrant.
Tho Bugar industry in tho British West Indios,
notably in Demerarn mid Trinidad, has been saved
from utter ruin by Coolies, whom I know to bo ns
a class, most industrious, frugal nnd respectful.
Perhaps I could best describe them by compnrinp;
them with Chinamen; thoy aro emitons industrious,
more frugal, since they do not gnmblo, nnd they do
not consider themselves their employers' equals.
Intellectually thoy nro inferior, morally superior,
nnd, in hoi countries, physically equal to thu Chi
nese. Sir. Armstrong found n ureat deal of casto in In
dia. In tho V.'ebt Indies it may and I believe docs
ciisi, oui j. never sew or uearu ot any tuuicuity on
mat score. 1 uvea 111 Jrimtiaet witti tno attorney
or general manager of several sugar-estates; ho
was a bachelor, so was I, aud wo had a cook, 11
houso-servant and n groom all coolies. Theso
did all tho work and nil sorts of work three in
stead of fifteen nnd tho work wns better elono
than it generally is in this couutry. Thoso men got
thirty cents n day each without food.
I do not advointo tho introduction of coolies
here for various reasons, all emito foroigu to my
? resent purpose of siying n word in favor of tho
lindoo; but I shall always bo glael to givo you or
your readeis tho opinions"formed from my experi
ence of tho race.
