The S. S. Nebraskan, which was in port at Kahului this week,
his as part of its cargo for San Francisco the first
Shipments' shipment of this season's sisel fibre. The sisel
grown in Hawaii has proven to be of most excel
lent quality and meets with a ready market on the coast. This is
a plant which while a loner one maturing' is a self caretaker and
should prove an excellent revenue getter to those who can devote
the ground in conjunction with other agricultural pursuits.

President W. v. Hall of the Nahiku Rubber Co. is quoted as
saying that "this business will be far more profit-
There is apparently no reason
why rubber should not be made a main industry
and as the lands required and the districts where it can be
sucessfully grown are few and are in no sense "cane'' lands,
and the cost of placing the article in its commercial slate is, as
compared with sugar, nominal, it will not be many years before
this island will have two main industries.

Uncle Sam is profiting by the war between Russia and Japan,
in more ways tnan one commercially. The
Czap'sUShips United States is furnishing Japan with the raw
material for her cotton goods, with men whose
ability to superintend the construction of torpedo-boats; and now
comes word that the Russian government has decided to place an
order for eight battle-ships, twenty cruisers of the armored and
second class to cost in the neighborhood of sixty-five millions of
dollars with American shipbuilders. As usual Uncle Sam fights
his battles for supremacy commercially, which is less expensive
than contesting rights with arms, ships and men.

who carry s on a wholesale liquor
store in Wailuku and a supply
store at Waikapu was invited to be
present at the conference, and in
ridentnlly explain nwny some re
marks which the striking Japan
ese thought rather ill timed. Mr.
Kimura refused to make the neces
sary apologies before the meeting,
but would do so before a delegation
often. After this the Waikapu
crowd accompanied by some from
the Wailuku strikers started for
Waikapu intending to make a
further demonstration over there,

Wednesday, June 14, will be the one hundred and twenty
Flag eighth anniversary of the adoption of the Stars and
Day Stripes as the flag of the United States, and the American
Flag Association organized to promote reverence for and prevent
desecration of the national emblem have issued a call requesting:
that on that day the flag be displayed on all municipal and state
buildings, and school teachers urged to arrange patriotic exercises
on that day. Too much cannot be brought to bear in reverence of
"Old Glory." Even the alien races seem to have a great deal of
respect for this flag, as was instanced at Lahaina ; why then should
citizens have less, or be so indifferent as to overlook a matter of
courtesy to our national emblem ? ,
Recent advices from Europe have it that the German Emperor
has intimated that "as Russia has shown weakness
fnAsia n tne presence of the yellow danger, circum.
stances might arise which would place upon Ger
many the task of opposing this danger." No one has even doubt
ed for a moment that Germany would sit idly by and seethe "div
ision of spoils" without taking a hand, and this is apparently still
further corrobated by the fact that the Russian government has
throug h the Society of German Captains and officers of the Com
mercial Marine, made arrangements for the enlistment of of
ficers and crews to man the transport ships which are to accom
pany the fifth division of the Pacific squadrou to Asiatic waters.
The most serious question or tne day in sugar circles is the
question of labor. The Advertiser says editori
Question01 aly: The strike epidemic among the Japanese
laborers is being nourished and spread by dem
agogues. A large number of Japanese, it is said, devote them
selves to preaching discontent along the old familiar lines of the
labor unions on the mainland. "We do most of the work; why

now heard on many plantations and is echoed in the vernacular
press. Perhaps mistakenly, the planters met the demand by

raising wages iwo uonars per moniu. me concession did not
make for peace, for two strikes broke out soon after, one of which
has been met by troops, and both of which were based on impos
sible demands. The peril is obvious. The more these Japanese
get the more tbey want; and unless they are stiffly curbed they
will do great damage to tne sugar interests of Hawaii. It is
pity that there are not enough men of other nativity in the fields
to replace them.
With the immigration, exclusion and contract laws and the
howl of the labor unions of the mainland to contend against the
question is a vexatious one to the planters. The planters claim that
the white man from the coast will not and cannot do the work in the
fields. The Koreans, and the Porto Ricans have proven them

an official of her diplomatic corps making a tour of the Southern
states wherever a colony or ner subjects are known and at the
bame time looking into the possibility of placing more colonies
to relieve tne congested condition at dome. Portuguese made
very dependable field and mill hands years ago when this class of
labor was employed. With the improved conditions existing ou
the plantations and the additional incentive of good living wages
it might not be impossible to obtaiu sufficient of these last
nationalities to relieve the strain caused by the exodus of Japanese
to California and change the situation so that the planters may nc t
be dependent upon one class of labor.
