The introduction of negro labor on the Island offers a possi
ble solution of the labor troublos. But good' judgmont must be
used in the matter. They should only be brought in limited num
bers at first, and every plantation which uses them should also se
cure the services of a white man from the south who knows ant.
understands negroes, and leavo their management largely in his
hands.. They are not to be handled as are Chineso aad Japanese,
and any manager who is not familiar with them will not be able to
get the best results from them. It must be remembered that
they are American citizens, and are familiar with the higher forms
of civilization. It must alio be remembered that as a class they
are easily led by kind hands, and
employers as their friends. If
and receive advances to enable
supporting, they will form a valuable element of Island labor, and
will come to the Islands by thousands. The better element of
them' will not come at. first, but if they find it all right here, the
very best class of them will come. All thav is then to be feared is
a stampede from the south to the

It is a great luxury to have steam
ers coining and goin? botween hure
ami au, it rancisco every two or
three days. The three long whistles
which notify the city that a steamer
has arrived ram the coast sound so
frequently now that no one pays at
tention to them unless they have
friends arriving or have especial
business with that particular vessel.
The steamer list is so long that in-
tead of printing the whole year s
list on a card as heretofore only
three months list is printed and even
that is to large for convenient refer
ence. The fact is that as far as
mails are concerned thero is no need
of keeping track of the steamers at
all. Write your letters at any timo

In Greek mythology the rose wa3
the symbol of silence, as it was said
that Cupid, the son of Venus, gave
the god of silence a golden rose as a
bride ta conceal the amours of the
goddess of love. It was, therefore,
sculptured on the ceilings of banquet

tho doors of questionable resorts.
Guests, atieasts were crowned with

Tho phrase obtained currency in
Greece after Pausauias, tho admiral
of tho Gi'cek fleet, plotted with Xer

banqueting hall, the roof of waieh
was,' as usual, covered with sculp
tured roses. The plot, however,
was discovered and orders given for
the arrest of the traitor. Pausanias
endeavored to make his. refuge in a
temple which possessed the right of
asylum. Unwilling to violate the
sanctity of the place by forcibly re
moving him and still more unwilling
to allow him to escape, his fellow citi
zens walled up every entrance and,
by one account, left him to die of
starvation; by another, killed him by
unroofing the building and throwing
flown the tiles on his head.
