There will bo no item in the News this week -which will bo

1 the announcement that Honolulu is free from the plague a id that
she bus thrown open hr gates to the travel mid truffle of tho world.
Prior to the advent of the plague, there was nut a spot o i earth
more prosperous c.on;p.aiilhe.iy that the Hawaiian Islands: and the
only complaint was the Uk of facilities for getting goods from the
Coast fast enough nj supply thi demand. Within a month, the
! same prosperous conditions will again exist, intonsiticd by the
impetus which r.n early settlement of the matter of an organic law

J The strike at Kihei this week teems with valuable, le.sons to
the employers of Japanese. It is unquestionably true, that the
masses of the Japanese ,n the lantations do not favor the strikes,
and it is.coniVsscdly true that the-Japanesc at Kihei were. forced into
the strike by a few bold and ipiscrupulous leaders. io kindness
or special pvivilej'ca extended by plantation managers will avert
strikes. The. only thing tq dq in such cases is to meet
such movor.:j.,::ts promptly and concede nothing for the

An Important Change.
One of the most important changes
made in the territorial bill before, it
was finally agreed upon is tlie strik
ing out of the provision by whicl
application of American shipping
laws to Hawaii was postponed for
one year. This means that Hono
lulu will lose a good deal of steamer
business, unless some special arran
gement is made. If the law goes
promptly into effect, the Moano,
which arrived today, may have
brought her last cargo from the
Under American shipping law

dental linen will be able to do au
business between Honolulu and San
Francisco, and some of the Oceanic
vessels will also be excluded. The law
provides that no foreign steamers
may do business between American
ports. As a result the business of
tho British and Japanese steamers,
as far as Hawaii is -concerned,
would bo confined to carrying pas.

and ports in China, Japan and tlie
colonies. No freight or passengers
eould be taken from here to San
Francisco, and nono from San Fran

a lvices have been received
locally as to whether the steamers
will continue to call hero, when, the
San Francisco part of their husincs
is cut oil. There is a good deal
of freight carrying between here
and Japan, but it is all on the west
ward trip, so that the Japanese and
Oriental and Occidental boat com
punies might find that it would pay
them to ignore Honolulu on tho trip
from Sau Francisco, culling here
with oriental freight on tlie way
back. Tl?re are three of each the

Porto Rlcan Plan.
New York, April 18. A special
to tho Tribune from Washington,
Tuesday's long Cabinet meeting
was chiefly devoted to considering
the inauguration of the civil govern
ment in Porto Rico on May 1st undi r
the new statutes. It lias been decidj
ed that the people of tho islands with
their natural fondness for pomp and
display shall be sufficiently impressed
with tho importance of tho new
establishment by tho visit of the
entire North Atlantic squadron,
On the day of the inauguration,
General Davis, the retiring military
governor, will assemble nearlv all
the troops of his department at the
capital and parade them in honor of
the occasion. Each of the ships will
fire a governor's salute of seventeen
guns, to be returned m land by the
forts ashore. At night there will be
a brilliant illumination of the ships,
with their masts lined with electric
lights and an exhibition of search
lights. The naval display will be
made all the more memorable from
tlie fact that the day will be the
anniversary of the battle of Manila
Governor Allen will spend at least
a week at San Juan before his formal
inauguration and m that tune it is
expected that he will be able to form a
a correct estimate of the qualifica

It will bo the effort of the Presl

of Porto Rico, will continue to sit as

united states will bo selected as
Judge, District Attorney and Mar
