The 1'ros tins repeatedly urged a
greater diversity of industries on these
islands. If the treaty lae, and leave
the Wands one big unprofitable sugar
plantation, wc shall be in the worst
kind of a ld boat. More bananas,
more oranges, more alligator pears,
more everything that ran find a profit
able market in San Francisco, ought to
be planted and cultivated and im
proved on the Hawaiian Islands. A
movement is on foot which promises to
set the ball rolling in the right direc
tion. An association is contemplated
whereby ramie culture and its maiin
facture into textile fabrics may be car
ried on together the one helping the
other. 'I hat ramie will grow here has
been demonstrated beyond a doubt by
the experiments of Mr. C. C. Coleman.
Hill there is no use growing ramie un
less you have machinery to make use
of it, "nor to get together expensive
manufacturing plant, unless you can be
sure of paying quantities of the raw
material. If the industry can be
pushed as it deserves, much good may
come of it. Half a dozen well estab
lished industries of the sort would make
us independent of the treaty a tub
standing on its own bottom.
A 1.1 tti.i: Mioirr sour, ruirirs.
In an article on Tropical Fruits and
Their Sale in New York, the livening
I'o.t of that city says: "The alligator
pear sells for from ao to ,o cents each.
When fully ripe it weighs from one to
two pounds. One pear will make as
much salad as a lobster or n chicken.
In the West Indies and Mexico this
fruit is called aguacate. In Urazil it is
called the palto. From 300 to 500 are
sold every week during the season from
June i to November i. If the pear
bc split open and a pen or sharp
jjointcd stick be dipped into the jelly
like mass, the compound can be used as
indelible ink, The mark made by it is
at first a dirty cream color, but becomes
darker with time, finally assuming a
deep salmon hue, and there is no
known acid which will remove it. The
sapodilla, or zapotc, is also called naze
berry. It is of two kinds, the long
and the fiat. The meat of the former
is white, and much finer than the latter
which is of a coarse salmon color. It
is the finest fruit for eating out of hand.
The prices range from 30 cents to $i
per dozen. The season begins in
March ist and ends September 1st.
From 25,000 to 50,000 of this fruit
are imported yearly. A dry season
shrivels up the fruit. The star apple
or calamitos, is a very beautiful fruit,
the skin being purple or light green,
the meat being of a corresponding
color, becoming gradually paler until it
is a clear white at the core. This when
cut open through the centre shows the
form of a star. The chirimoya, or
. custnrd'npplc, weighs from one pound
to two and a i.tilf. About 1800 are
sold every season at prices ranging
from 10 to 30 cents each. The sugar
apple, or guanabana, sometimes called
sweetsop resembles the chirimoya.
The soursop is used only to make a
drink. The bread fruit was first intro
duced three years ago. It should be
thoroughly kneaded like dough, rolled
out into thin sheets and baked on hot
irons." All this may sound trite to us
in Honolulu. Hut if we would "go in
for" raising more of the fruits we might
raise, we need have less fear of the loss
of the treaty. The fruit industry is
part of the "food for thought" the situa
tion has prepared for us.

lloth the government nursery and
the experimental forest need more
funds. To the outside observer, the
money so far spent seems to have been
well spent. More is needed and soon.
If government aid may not be had
until the legislature meets a popular
subscription ought to be started. The
Saturday Press will give $10 towards
any such fund if started by such men
as Mr. II. A. Widdemann, Mr. S. 11.
Dole, Mr. C. R. Hishop, or any gentle
man known to be really interested in
forestry. We think each of the other
apers will give at least as much. Two
hundred $10 subscriptions would help
the work wonderfully. Mr. Jaeger's
zeal and character are an endorsement
of all he undertakes; and there is no
doubt tjiat any subscription money
spent by him in forestry would be spent
The following suggestions may be ol
no especial value to the practical men
who have charge of the present forestry
work on this island. Hut they show
something of what the late James Mc
Clatchy one of the most thoughtful
men in the great state of California
thought on one of the most important
of modern topics:
The ficit funibincnl.it point In tree planting
on a large icale, Out I'. In planting vtliat may
lie called a form, U to consider the lr in a
crop; only ItiU requires a much longer time
than culinary crop to come to maturity, This
will put the subject to many, if not to most
lwrsom, in a new act. Accepting the Idea
that trees arc to lie planted like corn or wheat,
as A crop, there follows at once the ncccssiiy
of care and cultivation and the consideration
that these arc the conditions of success. We
do not exect to Iwmcst an ordinary crop and
one that will yield a satisfactory pecuniary re
turn without fusing bestowed upon it care and
labor, No more should we loot; for success In
the larger growths of the forest without a cor
responding culture. And when, we come
to look upon the growth of a forest In this
lisiht we shall easily, utmost inevitably,
regard our ordinary native forests,
where the trees arc simply suffered to
grow up in complete neglect, exposed to in
jury from the lutnisions of cattle and from
other cuiuci, as at Ik-si only a partial utiliza
tion of the fields which nature has provided
for our comfort and profit. It Is true tlut
trees will grow and come to maturity in touch
places and on fioor soils, where nulling else
will grow or where the cultivation of oilier
crop is impracticable and unprofitable, h t
alo true lh.it the growth of these forest crops,
instead of impoverishing, enriches the soil.
Hence there is no use of our iwor, and what
we call waste, lands, which abound mote or
less everywhere, at once so economical and
profitable as to devote them to the growth of
trees. Left to themselves, as our forests and
woodlands generally are, they are remunera
tive. They would be sastly more so, if, in
stead of regarding them as the accidental pro
ducts of nature, we wire to regard them as one
of out staple crops, something to lie managed
oil careJ for by us. Sacramtnto Ht,

officious middlemen whom the world does not

The extract above quoted is from
the novel of a New England woman.
It is quoted because it helps, to show
the patent fart that social conditions,
and business usages attract--as they
undoubtedly deserve to attract the
attention of a great many people other
than philosophers like Herbert Spencer,
political economists like Francis A.
Walker and business men like like
any merchant on Queen street. The
extract quoted is not altogether- true.
Were middlemen always what they
ought to be, it would be altogether un
true. In a right condition of things

of the relations between the producer
and tnc small dealer. Hut he ought
not to abuse his privileges. Evidently
he has done so in Iingland, for the
manufacturers of England are selling
almost direct to the people all over the
nation, and in many lines of trade.
There is much to blame and much
to commend in the business methods
of the prominent Honolulu firms. The
balance is in their favor. Hut there arc
two deadly drawbacks to the prosperity
of Honolulu retailers. One drawback
is the competition of the wholesalers.
It is a notorious fact that both impor
ters and jobbers arc constantly selling
goods by the case, by the docn and
sometimes by the piece, at the same
prices that are paid by the retailers,
who must, in their turn, mulct the con''
sumcr of his proper discount in order
Jo make a living profit or else forceo
that profit. As a result of this unfair
and short-sighted policy, many retailers
buy altogether in San Francisco or
some other American city, preferring to
pay interest on a large invested capital
rather than help support men who treat
them in a manner they consider unfair.
If there be an importer in Honolulu
who does not sell goods at retail, that
importer will please consider himself
excepted Irom anything in this para
Theotherdeadlydrawback to the pros
perity of the retailers is the unfair compe
tition among themselves in certain lines
of merchandise. Stationery, jewelry,
drugs, and tobacco are four Hues which
will illustrate this charge if readers
note the facts. There was a time in
the history of Honolulu when it was
necessary that dealers should keen a
great many lines of goods, and carry a
large stock of eacl) line. The natural
changes incident to a largely increased
population have opened the field for a
great many retailers ; some of these
have well defined specialties and keep
to them. Other retailers arc sellers of
everything they can get into their stores,
from potatoes to clocks. This grab-bag
sort of business is unjust to those re
tailers who arc trying to do legitimate
business. In the long run, it ought to
prove injurious to those who practice
it. Let our mercantile cobblers stick
each to his last, take this in good part,
turn over a new leaf, and begin the
new year with reform.

The phrase "Profit mongers" is the
coinage of one of the latest reformers.
Any man who lives on labor not his own
is a "profit monger," Where is the
line to be drawn. It seems that a law
yer is a working man. Who are not?
Where are the drones ?
This invention of catch words to
designate the rich is unworthy honest
workmgmen. The man who has brains
and industry ought to be allowed to
exercise it without the envious inter
ference of any body. The man who
manages a big business successfully
must work a precious deal harder than
the average artisan, the average lawyer
or the average editor. .
"The drones rtel in luxury while
the producers exist in poverty." If the
sentence be correctly reported by one
of the dailies, it is a" bit of the shallow
clap traps which real working men
ought to be ashamed to employ. To
the man who has appetite for a whole
loaf and can have onjy the half, the
whole loaf, when he gets it, is luxury.

lives in luxury, I will show you ten men

It is a shameful, a cowardly thing to
attempt to stir up class animosity in
Honolulu. There are few working
men here who cannot save money
enough to suptxut themselves creditably
if they will keep away from bar rooms.
This is not saying that workingmen
ought not to organize and strike for
their rights. It is not saying they ought
not to organize for political purposes,
and bring forward candidates. Let
them demand a fair representation in

"The telegraph, the telephone and
the mail service ought to be part and
parcel of one great national work the
rapid, cheap and reliable transmission
of thought, in the interest of commerce,
education, morals and good government-
-and should be conducted with
the sole object of the good of the
people, and not for the profit of a com
pany of shareholders or capitalists."
The forcible language of a good
friend of local institutions is quoted
here to emphasize the point we wish to
make that here, as in every place
where civilization is progressive, men
arc thinking seriously about who ought
to control telegraph and telephone
lines and thereby rcgulale their service.
The British shareholders in the Ha
waiian Hell Telephone Company paid
$5,050 for their 505 shares. These
shares were recently sold to Mr. James
Campbell for $20,000. Hut the profit
realized by the Londoners has been
considerably less than the apparent
difference between the purchase and
selling price ol the shares. The
lawsuit with the Honolulu share
holders cost $.1,000 to the Londoners
and they must have paid their agent
here something like the same sum. It
is true that no regular assessments
were levied upon the British holders ,
but all the earnings of the company
went into running expenses and exten
sion of lines. So the real profit cannot
be much more than $fi,ooo. Even
$6,000 is a handsome profit upon the
original outlay of $5,050 in less than
three years. It is a larger profit than
should have been allowed to slip through
the fingers of the community. It is un
likely that any present purchaser is
going to sell his shares at less than he
gave for them if he can help it.
The community which, in the end,
pays full value for all it gets must pay
the actual profit and the unproductive
expenses, resulting from this British
investment and sale. If the Mutual
Telephone Company buys out its es
tablished rival on the basis of the re
cent sale it must pay for the $14,950
advance in the value ol the shares held
by the British investors unless it can
be shown that the sum represented by
that, large advance, plus an almost
equal advance on the shares held in
Honolulu, has been put into the plant
of the old company.
The idea of many is that the govern
ment can better manage the telephone
business than any private corporation
because it can afford to give the service
for just what it costs. Give us a respec
table administration, and the Press
will endorse the idea of a postal tele
graph and a postal telephone. The
English postal telegraph is one of the
assured successes of the age. Every
thing points to government control ot
the telegraph and the telephone in the
United States. Why not in Hawaii?
If telephones could be operated in
conjunction with the post office, nearly
everyone would subscribe to the pro
ject. If the public could be sure that
a postal telephone and the coming
inter-island telegraph could be " run "
to as good purpose as are both the cus
tom house and the survey department,

unanimous favor? But considered as
an opportunity to make room for more

Since Mr. J. E. Searlcs, of the sugar I
commission, nas sucn great objection to
tnc Hawaiian planters inqvorting
Chinese and Portuguese labor, perhaps
he will condescend to let them go down
on their knees and ask what he would
have had them do.
The plantations already in existence
before the treaty passed, often Mineral
serious loss and were sometimes almost
compelled to shut down for want of
labor. Every new plantation started
only added to the difficulty. What a
thorn what an irritating prickly hair
rope in the flesh - would the treaty have
been had planters been compelled to
confine themselves to only such native
labor as could be obtained. And
treaty or no treaty, some of them would
have been forced to close lnnjj ere
this. Some of the planters held strong
prejudice against Chinamen, and
yielded the point only when compelled
to do so or fail. Imported labor, as
much as the treaty, has been the salva
tion of the sugar, and consequently of
.111 i.ouiHn.n-1.11, iiiicresis in tnese
islands. Would Mr. Scarles have had
them import American labor? Even
supposing that it could have been ob
tained at high prices, it would have
been a source of intolerable vexation
and worse than useless. The propo
sition to exclude such imported
labor as could be obtained at
living rates, when reasoned according
to facts and common sense, reiluces it
self to an absurdity. And what do
Mr. Searlcs or the Eastern sugar refiners
care whether the Islands employ
Chinese or any other labor? They see
the question only through the purblind
eyes of refiners, who arcfranticbccau.se
they cannot as conveniently obtain the
sugar as other purchasers, and object
to any one else having it. Their
pscudo philanthropy is indignant that
the sugar consumers on the Pacific
coast should pay i4 to 2 cents a
pound more for their sweets than those
on the Atlantic seaboard. Did they
ever feci sore that the consumers in
China pay 3 or 4 cents a pound less
than those on their own coast? Per
haps not; those are only Chinamen,
and they object to Chinamen. But let
I them crcise their philanthropy a little
and reduce their prices to a par with
those of "the most favored nation."
Let them brush the dust from their
eyes, put themselves in the place of the
Hawaiian planters and view the subject
in a reasonable light. Let them trans
fer themselves to the Pacific coast, or
to these islands and take advantage of
tnc "Bonanza." 1 he scales would fall
from their eyes and their tunc would
Mr. Scarles likens the Hawaiian Is
lands to a boy who got 50 cents out
ol an old woman, then bought with
part of it a few of her apples, and told
her she should be thankful for the en
couragement he gave her.
Let him continue the comparison,
look a little deeper, and sec how, with
that 50 cents, the boy was enabled to
create employment for a horde of her
children; open a market for their wares;
and so by enabling them to increase
their wordly goods and support them
selves, render direct benefit to the old
Again: in comparing the high yields
of sugar per acre obtained in some
parts ofthese islands (ao is occasion
ally done) with those obtained in the
Southern States, the Eastern refiners
and the Southern planters as well must
bear in mind that these yields arc ob
tained only on a growth of 18 months
to upwards of two years, and that the
planter here, rarely if ever sees his
money within two years from the time
he begins to break his sod. So that
the Southern planter, with his yield of
2 tons per acre grown in 9 months, is,
other things being equal, as well off, to
say the least, as the Hawaiian planter
with his 2 to 4 tons grown in double or
three times the length of time. While
it is true that favored spots or irricated
lands yield occasionally 5 or 6 tons per
acre, tmsis not the rule, the average
yield having been estimated at 3 tons
per acre. The facts and figures on the
various branches of this topic are suffi
cient to convince any mind that is open
to conviction. A Plant.
