MAY o, ils
Some of our readers may remember
an article in tticse columns over a year
ago in which Mr. Claus Sprcckcls and
his various enterprises were tcmpei-itcly
div-usscd. Mr. SprcckcW Advertiser
11 edited by a (gentleman not yet con
spicuously informed upon Hawaiian
affairs; and he may be unaware that
the opposition to Mr. Sprcckcls has
any basis in reason. Ifc may even go
so far as to doubt that it has any
foundation save in the malice of "sore
heads," the envy of "the outs," and
the "pure cusscdncss" of those wicked
and witless people who neither appro,'
date Mr. Sprcckcls' public spirit nor
believe in his absolute disinterestedness.
We advise the editor of Mr.
Sprcckcls' Advertiser to read up his
tontein)oraiics. During the past three
vears a great many "anti-Sprcr.kels"
articles have been written. If a few of
them have been unjust, Mr. Spreckels
is to blame for permitting himself to
atmcar what he is not. If most of
them have" been just, it has been Mr.
Sprcckcls' fault that he has less skill
fully concealed his schemes.
Wc do not doubt that Mr. Sprcckcls
is unable to understand why the feeling
against him has grown to the pro
portions now existing Nor do we
think that Mr. Sprcckcls has ever in
tended to put himself in opposition to
almost the entire business community
of these islands. He has become a
monopolist by degrees, and now that
the pressure upon all of us has become
oppressive, he wonders why this is thus.
It is so generally. Rulers do not
become tj rants, nor merchants mon
opolists, at one fell swoop. The
process is gradual. The use of power
fosters its abuse. The ruler who works
injustice by tampering with the ballot,
corrupting the legislature or exceeding
the legitimate functions of the ex
ecutive, generally begins by doing
something comparatively harmless.
The merchant whose jiosition enables
him to take advantage of other mer
chants, whose increasing power gives
him the right to dictate terms, who
finally becomes an intolerable autocrat,
may begin, and generally does begin,
in a very small way.
Mr. Clans Spreckels has become the
power he now is in both San Francisco
and Honolulu, because there has never
been a sufficiently determined opposi
tion to his arbitrary rule. He has been
permitted to go on until he controls
the price of every gum drop manufac
tured on the I'acific Coast, and until
he can dictate who shall sell gin on
Maui or who shall not be pound-keeper
It is a long list the humiliations the
people of these islands are forced to
put up with on account of Mr. Spreck
els. A few of these humiliations arc as
The high price of sugar on the Pacific
Coast as compared with the price in
the Eastern United States has been
the strongest argument against the con
tinuation of our reciprocity treaty.
This high price has been maintained
without corresponding gain to the
planters or sugar factors of these is
lands. The prices obtained by us have
been out of all fair proportion to the
profits obtained by Mr. Spreckels
especially during 1884 while the re
sult of the high prices obtained for the
sugars of his refineries has been to
prejudice thousands against the treaty
as "only another factor in the mon
opoly that has helped to empoverish
the people of the I'acitlc Coast to
enrich Claus Spreckels." In other
words, we have bad the name and Mr.
Spreckels has bad the game.
Another humiliation has been the
arbitrary and high-handed insistence of
Mr. Spreckels that all the Hawaiian
sugars should go to him. This insis
tence has been coupled with threats to
"fight'' those who dated sell on the
ohm market ; and the few attempts at
independence in selling have been
generally discouraged by the attitude of
those who "could not afford to fight."
Again, it has been a humiliation that
Mr. Spreckels' olicy to place sugar
producers and sugar factors under en
tangling pecuniary obligations has been
so fruitful of ill results. This policy
has been carnsd on under the guise of
open handedness and liberality; and has
only now been found out now that
Mr. bptcckcls lias shown Ins true
colors so plainly. Nearly all our read'
ers know the true inwardness of transac
tions extending through several past
yeafs, whereby money w.i. loaned to
certain of our citizens at a compara
tively low rate of interest and under
circumstances which seemed to invite
lavish extension of business. And all
know how the screws were put on at
a time when the only ossible settle
merit shot I of ruinous failure was a
betllement dictated by the an fully
generous money icnuer on ms own
terms. Those who know the negoiia
dons between Mr. Spreckels and the
Hawaiian sugar seller during the past
two vears know why certain anti mon
opolists "fell down" because they owed
Mr. Sprockets too much money to dare
oppose hint And we all of .us have
watched the ruinous friendship that has
made men once independent mere
satellites of or apologists for the
Spreckels' monopoly 5 and the not less
ruinous friendship that has given some
of our wealthy land owners the benefit
of Mr. Sprcckcls' partnership, in certain
transactions, in exchange for mortgaged
lands and damaged credit.
Hut the most galling humiliation this
country has had to bear from Mr.
Spreckels has been his illegitimate in
terference with Hawaiian politics. Far
worse than his sugar monopoly has
been his debauchery of Hawaiian
tolitics. He openly boasts that he con
trols king and cabinet says he carries
the latter "in his pocket." The world
so far as it troubles itself with our
affairs -believes that Mr. Spreckels
docs control our king and our cabinet ;
and we cannot truthfully deny it." We
have known him try to defeat the will
of the people and fail as in his
attempt to beat the election of Kauhanc,
in Kau, two years ago. Hut we all know
that he boasts of being able to dictate
who shall not go to the legislature. We
all know how three vears ago he se
cured the Maui land in defiance of the
prevailing belief that the transaction
was an improper one, and against sound
public policy. We know how his
creatures in the last legislature sought
to foist upon the nation the most
gigantic scheme of public and private
plunder ever put forth in modern times.
And wc know that only the fear of
revolution forced them to mask their
designs, and put on the cloak of com
pliance with public opinion.
We know all this and the nation
knows so also. The editor of Mr.
Sprcckcls' Advertiser either does not
know or effects not to know thee
things. He writes as if he thinks
that Mr. Spreckels and Mr. Spreck
els' projects are good and only good ;
that his two steamers doing the work of
one at twice the cost (to us) are un
mixed blessings ; that his sugar mon
opoly, paying us the Manilla price for
better sugars, is an unadulterated
benefit ; that bis new savings bank bor
rowing the peoples money at five per
cent., to use in any speculation he may
choose to embark it in, is an unques
tionable boon. He stout to think so.
We are at a loss to decide whether it is
more charitable to give his intelligence
or bis candor the benefit of the doubt.
The editor of Mi. Spreckels' Adver
tiser, if not already wiser than he seems,
must scon become so. When he does
become so he will either leave in dir
gust a task as thankless as it is hopeless '
or return to his monopoly kennel una
bashed and batk himself still more
hoarse in defense of him whose collar
he now so complacently wears.
O.V Til IS WHOSO TJtACK,
To be "metaphorically kicked" by
persons interested in certain existing
industries, because wc seek to awaken
new interest in lapsed or possible in
dustries, is one thing : to be "kicked
metaphorically" by a contemporary,
writing upon a subject it knows nothing
about, is another. Vet perhaps each is
natural enough. The "kicks" are alike
in their senselessness, one from a nar
row selfish vision, and the other from a
no wider one.
There is a degree of compassion due
the first, though, that the second is by
no means entitled to. The first is
blinded by fear of diverting interests
from existing industries, with the plea
that "a bird in the hand is worth two
in the bush." The second is blinded
by ducats and fancies a mistaken
thought that is fathered by a contempts
I'or those who would be satisfied
with one bird, we have a sense of
ronmter;Uion,feclingthankful that they
arc so easily satisfied, yet annoyed that
they would hold back another's effort to
obtain two. I'or our contemporary who
affirms its "present object is simply to
record our (its) satisfaction at the just
punishment with which this business
community has visited a I'ress" we
have only unmixed contempt. Wc arc
glad, however, that it has deliberately
made the admission. The public may
the better draw its conclusions. We
should pity were not pity wasted the
morbid antagonism that seeks glory in
charging us with "mounting the tem
perance hobby and running full tilt
against public and pyvate credit," be
cause, forsooth, we published its tables
as corroborating our stand on the
license question. Ignoring the intended
sneer we thank it for such frank recog
nition of our principles. Perhaps it
will rue and explain what public and
whose private credit has been tilted
against. The unintentional admission
should give encouragement to the
"small coterie" of temperance workers,
as it does to us We might find com
fortwere it possible to credit any
thing from such a source in our
contemporary's assertion that "when
the ideal has been transformed
into the real then iha!l there Ik conso
lation in the thought that justice is not
quite departed from these islands."

The Daily llullctin, in its issue of
the 5th instant, republishes an article
from the Chicago Times, entitled
" I.cprosy in England," wherein the
recent discovery of a leper in Scotland
is noticed, and comments arc made on
the prevalence of leprosy in the HritisJi
Isles about the 15th century.
In the " Editorial Notes,"' reference
is made to the same in the following
language: "A selected article in this
issue tells of the great prevalence of
leprosy in Great Britain three or four
centuries ago. As the race inhabiting
that country triumphed over the
hideous pestilence, there is hope for
the redemption of the Hawaiian jxjople
from its clutches."
Wc differ with the llullctin in this,
that we would, at least, qualify our ex
pressions of hope by adding "if the
same means were taken here to prevent
contagion." The measures adopted
for the riddance of the disease there
were no half measures; and a "Jazar
house" meant a prison, with absolute
segregation for its inmates. And there
were no ten fer ant. of lepers among
people there as there is here. Morc
over, the disease there was generally
feared, and contact with lepers avoided
in every possible way by healthy
people. Here, the natives, with few
exceptions, make no effort whatever to
avoid social intercourse with lepers,
and even many foreigners seem to be
growing equally indifferent. In Norway
and Iceland, where compulsory segre
gation has not been carried out, the
people have not "triumphed over the
hideous pestilence," although they have
had centuries to do it in. It was here
that the absurd idea prevailed that the
disease owed its origin to the ingestion
of unwholesome fish, and was, con
sequently, not believed to be con
tagious. Not many years ago it was
estimated that there was a larger pro
portion of lepers to the total popu
lations of Norway and Iceland than
existed in any other countries in the
world, the percentage being about two
and one-half, or one in forty. These
countries adopted a style of dealing
with lepers different from that of other
countries of Europe, and the result;.
have been different. The style adopted
here (more especial') of late) has been
very like that of Norway, and the
results have been somewhat similar,
although greatly worse. It is authen
tically stated that in Madagascar, after
the compulsory segregation of lepers
had been abolished, the disease (be
fore comparatively limited) soon began
to " spread to an alarming extent." To
any one knowing the actual state of
affairs here, the outlook must be any
thing but pleasant, and his dreams of
hope wilj be dashed with many a
Reference was made recently by one
of our contemporaries of the advis
ability of raising castor-oil beans for
profitable local use or export. Wc
have no knowledge of any pains being
taken for their cultivation in any part
of the islands, though they are known
to grow readily almost anywhere, and
do erow in a wild state in manv
Some fifteen years or more ago the
late G C. McLean advertised for and
bought all the castor beans that were
gathered and sent to market, and made
an attempt to utilize them for the
manufacture of oil for lubricating pur
poses, but with what success pecuniar
ily to himself, or others, we are not
advised ; though we have a faint recol
lection that its product gave satisfaction
as a lubricating oil for machinery,
having, in its crude state, considerable
body, without the gummy objections to
certain fish oils.
If our information is correct, castor
oil is preferred over all others for
lubricating tunning machinery, lly a
little energy on the part of the farming
fraternity the beans that are now
allowed to go to waste might be har
vested and sent to market, and if a
sufficient quantity were gathered, to
make it an object for export. The
price obtained would, doubtless,
le tound sufficiently remunerative
to warrant a direct effort toward their
cultivation, and in a short time a
hydraulic oil press would again be
found serviceable for the local utiliza
tion of this product. Wc would
thereby save the snug little sum we are
paying abroad ea-.Ii year for oils for the
use of our machine shops and plan
tations, for which our imports range, at
times, as high as 8,840 gallons per
annum for lubricating oils alone.
If any of our readers have ac
knowledge upon the cultivation and
vield of this product, we should be
pleased to have them report; in the
meantime, probably wc may be able to
obtain information from abroad that
will be of material aid in solving the
problem of dealing intelligently with
this oily subject.

Manhood suffrage in the United
States is so poor a success that nearly
every city in the Union has an immense
debt, piled up by the votes of property-
less place hunters who vote for the
man who promises spoils. Manhood
suffrage in the United States has fed
and fattened monopoly and made mis
rule synonymous with democracy.
Manhood suffrage has made " Tweed "
rings and " whiskey" rings and "star
route" rings and " Indian" rings flourish
like green bay trees. It does not fol
low that a restricted suffrage would
have given the United States cither
legislative or administrative purity.
Tyros in historical reading know that
restricted suffrage did not secure Eng
land immunity from successful spoils
seeking. Wc know that some of the
worst features of French misrule have
taken place under the s.nu tion of restric
The question is a many sided one.
In no other question does the problem
of how to secure the greatest good to
the greatest number so constantly
obtrude itself. Is suffrage a right or a
privilege? "If it is the exercise of a
God-given right, upon which intellec
tual or moral fitness may not justly
impose limitations" as I'arktnan puts
it ; if, in other words, any man has
an abstract right to vote for who shall
tax him, judge him, govern him, then
government is an irrational compact
between the governing and the gov
erned, dependent for its tenure upon
the mere whim of the bare majority
which may be enlightened and moral
or may he ignorant and vicious.
Hut men like I'arkman believe that
the right to vote is not an abstract
right. They hold that it becomes a
right only under certain conditions;
that it is, in effect, a privilege. The
right carries with it certain duties. To
vote intelligently demands intelligence ;
to vote honestly demands honesty.
The intelligence of the community-
whether it is in the majority or not
has a right to demand that there be
some applied test of intelligence and
We go a step further. We think
intelligence ought always to rule. It
generally does rule. Hut sometimes it
does not ; and it has " the moral right
of mental might " to bend social and
political conditions to its will. It can
do so fairly in only one way by pre
scribing the test of suffrage. At best
the test is an unsatisfactory one, yet
the world's experience knows no better.
We believe the United States would
be more economically and more justly
governed to-day if all who voted were
holders of either real or personal prop
erty above a small prescribed valuation.
We know that many dishonest and
unintelligent people, with parsimony
and shrewdness in lieu of thrift and
ability, gain property more rapidly than
their better neighbors. Hut the rule is
opposite. The rule is that property
means intelligence and thrift. We.
think it is a safe rule,
In this kingdom the problem is com
plicated by the race question. We
shall return to the subject again.

"With the opening of the Hank qf
Savings and Deposits of Claus Sprcck
cls & Co., the era of private and irre
sponsible banking in Honolulu came to
an end," says Mr. Sprcckcls' Advertiser
of the 5th instant. Wc trust the public
will not be silly enough to gather from
this that the Hank of Savings and De
posits of Claus Sprcckcls & Co." is
other than n "private" bank, As to its
"responsibility" we say nothing. We
hope it is responsible. But wc do not
believe, and we don't think any one
else believes, that it is one whit more
responsible than its older rival. The
fact that the management of the new
bank has deposited $joo,ooo In Ha
waiian bonds with the minister of
finance, as security for the money de
posited with it, proves nothing. That
little act need blind no one. It has
no warrant in law. If Mr. Spreckels
wanted to act in bad faith he could de
mand of the finance minister that those
bonds be given up to him, and no one
could legally interfere. The new-
savings bank has nothing but the credit
and capital of Claus Spreckels back of
it ; and similar credit and capital arc
back of the old bank. The question
for depositors to decide is a simple one,
Which of the two sets of capitalists
representing the two banks has the
more careful, the more conservative,
the more saving reputation and which
is less likely to risk borrowed money in
bad investments ?
HAM IK rinUJIKS QUKSTIOSKI).
At first glance the figures in the
article on Ramie from the New York
Dry Goods Bulletin, published in the
Press of April 25th, gives a most excel
lent showing, and if correct, would far
exceed the sanguine reports that have
been made of the remunerative nature
of this product since a machine for
cleaning, it has been invented ; so much
so, that parties interested therein have
investigated the same and now ask that
some degree of allowance be made for
the creeping in of an evident error from
some source, typographical, or other
wise, as grave doubts arise as ,to the
possibility of so much growth of ramie
being possible to the acre. The yield
from two acres in Northern France is
reported at 132,300 pounds each crop,
of which three a year could be
harvested from June to October. If
so, five, or at least four, can ,be
harv ested at these islands. This amount
per two acres, for the year, equals
396,900 pounds of stalks, worth in
France 710 of a cent per pound, or
$2,778.30 for the annual crop.
Mr. Edward I.ycan has recently
measured off and planted out an acre
of ramie and will soon be in a position
to prove or disprove the accuracy of
the figures in the article above alluded
to, as to yield. We believe there is no
question relative to the number of pos
sible crops per annum.
.Hulling of the Mtirmtty Star,
Following the rainy weather last week, that
necessitated n postponement in the departure
nf llic new missionary packet, she started
untler bright ami pleasant auspices on Satur
day, the 2nd instant, at 3 P.M. The day was
bright and clear, and the event drew out quite
.1 gathering of parlies interested to witness and
partake in the- exercises at her departure.
Appropriate hjtnns were sung ill both the
English and Hawaiian languages, prayer in
Hawaiian by Itev. 0. Ilco, a returned
Hawaiian missionary, and an address, also in
Hawaiian, by another, Rev. V. N. Lono,
who is on his way to his new field of labor in
Maiaha, one of the Gilbert Islands. Kcv. Dr.
C. M. Ilvde made an appropriate address in
English that outdid his usual off-lund remarks
on such occasions. Kcv. U C. Oggcl made
the closing prayer, and Hev. H. llingliam
gave the benediction. Then, amid adieus and
farewells, she steamed out from her berth and
port, and sped westward to carry glad tidings
From here the Star sails direct for Tapiteuea,
the southernmost of the Gilbert Islands, on
which the Hawaiian missionaries are stationed.
These will be gathered up and taken to Kusaie
for the annual meeting of the mission, touch
ing at Jaluit, en route for any letters or pack-
ages that may have been left ihcre. While
the Gilbert Island Mission is holding its
service a't Kusaie, the Star will take to Ponape
the mails for the American missionaries there,
Riving them also timely notice of her arrival
and future plans. Then returning to Kusaie,
Rev. -Mr. Walkup will accompany thi
Hawaiian missionaries back to their respective
stations, and make the annual inspection of
the condition and needs of that part of the
field. After this work is accomplished, and
Mr. Walkup has been returned to his home at
Kusaie, the Star will proceed to Kuk and
bring Kev. Mr. Logan to Ponape, in order to
visit the Mortlock Mission in connection with
Rev. K. T. Doane. Returning Mr. Logan to
his home in Ruk, Kcv. Mr. Doane will go on
to Yap, taking the teachers whom he has pre
pared for that island. Returning, the Star
will leave Mr. Doane on Ponape. Going on
to Kusaie, and taking on board Miss Cathcart;
the Marshall Islands will be visited. This
work done, and some Hawaiian missionaries
taken on board at Ilutaritan, the Star will
come directly to Honolulu. The vovage as
planned will take about 10 months.
posal is now under consideration by
the Russian Government, which has
decided to convoke a meeting of a
committee of Ministers at Gatschina to
consider the question.
In the House of Commons, April
30th, Lord Fitzmauricc, under secre
tary for foreign affairs, as yet, was with
out information of the second engage

troops, and believes that the Afghans
still hold Hala-Murghab.

A NEW LOT Ol-
ll Slay Los Them
A recent San Francisco paper saj 5 J The
report that o crimes hac been made lo
Sprcckcls Brother for the purchase of the
steamers Mariioia and Alameda is confirmed
by John I). Sprcckcls, who adds further that
llritish as well as Russian agents hae ap
proached him on the subject. Negotiations
arc now pending, but Mr. Sprcckcls would not
stale particulars as to price, etc. The agents
have spoken only with reference to the tun
vessels named, which, on account of their great
speed, would, with the addition of a heavy
armament of long-range guns, be admirably
adapted for cruising purposes, of which fact
both the llritish ami Russian Governments
seem well aware. Should the vessels be sold,
which docs not seem at all unlikely, others
will immediately be substituted on the
Gen. Grant pasicd a very quiet niuht.
To-day the General lias been dictating
to the stenographer matter Tor his book
Mr. Uenty Willgeroth of Hakalau,
Hawaii, obligingly sends us the follow
1113 interesting bit of information,
gathered from a recent Berlin pajicr;
" The beet sugar factories named be
low made during the season of 1884-5
sugar as follows; Norton, 9,071 tons,
a daily average of 81 tons; Northciiu,
6,372 tons; Obernjesa, 3,580 tons.
All these factories are in the kingdom
of Hanover, Germany, and all in the
district of Mundciv. Norten is the
largest beet sugar factory in the world."
We sincerely hope so.
Because the courteous editor of .Mr.
Spreckels' Advertiser thinks "manhood
suffrage" a good thing, it follows, as a
logical sequence, that those who dis:
agree with the courteous editor are
"pleading the baby act." Mr. Spreckels'
Advertiser ts nothing if not logical It
is generally nothing.
A person representing himself to be

be an Hawaiian subject, has applied

I name is an Hawaiian subject
Our travelling correspondent visited
Wniakea during his visit to Hilo and
saw the maceration process in opera
tion. He found it working to the
satisfaction of the mill management.
AH the sugar men with whom he con
versed about it thought well of it, in
cluding some who had examined it
several times. In returning to Hono
lulu, he met Doctor Martin, the
Sprcckelsville chemist, and found that
gentleman convinced that the process
was so great an improvement over
existing methods that it marked a dis
tiuct advance in sugar manufacture.
The result of Judge Han's "diffusion-
maceration experiment at Ntuljt will
be looked for with increasing interest

RUMaiatf EttylUh War Xetra.
The fight is not jet on; but is im
minent. Russia says she will accept
"the Lessar line r" but will not explain
the "Komorofi incident." England is
evidently ready for war if Ruibia does
not yield. Italy is said to be at hng
land's service to her last man. France,
Germany and Austria counsel peace.
The end is not yet, and may not surely

patches arc as follows :
The Moscow Gazette says that if
England wishes to avoid war she must
evacuate i'ort Hamilton at the en
trance to the Sea of Japan, otherwise
Russia will be obliged to occunv Herat.
The Gazette also says it believes the
question of peace or war must be set
tled within a few days. A later London
dispatch denies the report of British
occupation of Port Hamilton ; though
England is evidently ready for it,
Senators and members of congress
now in the city are seriously considering
the necessity of having an extra session

and Russia, in order to repeal the

Acelilenlal Death ttf Mr Admiral
Many readers will remember Mrs. Reynolds,
who with her husband was on Kauai several
years previous to i860. Her husband was
then a naval officer on 'eav c. They cnt back
to the United States on the breaking out of the
war, through which he fought. In 1867-8,
(or thereabouts) he returned in command of
the Lackawanna. Captain Perkins of ths Hart
ford being at that lime his first officer. Captain
Reynolds was promoted to be rear admiral,
was afterwards in command of the Asiatic
squadron, and died in service.
The sad news has just been received that on
the 15th of April last, Mrs. Reynolds
was accidentally drowned. A Washington
paper gives the news as follows;
At Fortress Monroe jestcrday a party con
sisting of Mrs. Admiral Reynolds, Miss Rey
nolds, Miss Knowlton, of this city, Mrs.
Clarence D. Senseman, of Philadelphia, and
her baby, two months old, set out from Hamp
ton in a flat-bottom lioat, rowed by two colored
men, to visit Old Point. The wind vvas blow
ing a gale, and a high sea was running at the
time. As the boat was rounding the point,
near the Ilaltimore pier, at Fortress Monroe,
It became unmangeable, and capsized within
loo feet of the beach. Miss Reynolds, Miss
Knowlton and Mrs. Senseman and her baby,
and one colored man, clung to the boat, and
were saved through the efforts ol Messrs.
Green Francis, the telegraph operator, Kleps
Icin and Pike, of the Ilvgcia hotei, and young
Timberly, of Old Point. Mrs. Revnolds was
swept off, but was finally brought to shore by
J. W, Mobly, but died from cihaustlon a few
minutes aftei her rescue. The remaining
colored man sav cd himself by swimming to
shore. The whole party was slopping at
lUrncs hotel, Hampton, Virginia. The
colored men have since been arretted.
Mrs, Rebecca Reynolds was widow of Ad
miral Reynolds, and resided at 1819 II, street,
in this city, for many yean. She has been
prominent for a long time in naval and army
society circles here, and hail a large circle of
friends. She was 60 years old.
