In nnstvor to the question "What
do you consider to bo the most im-.
portaiit business legislation to be
enacted at the coming session?", the
three recently elected Senators from
Oahu expressed their views us fol
low: SENATOR .McCARTIIY-A new
liquor law with high licenso and
licenses to be bold only by citizens.
I would limit the number of licenses
to one for every fifteen hundred of
the population based upon the 1 ast
United States census-figures. Before
a license is issued I would have it
submitted to tho Board of Super
visors for their recommendation. A
licenso should be transferable so that
it may be an asset to the holder, sub
ject. to cancellation for violation of
provisions made lo compel a careful
and orderly conduct of the business.
Next, the adoption of tho Austra
lian ballot system for which purpose
a bill is now being prepared.
Third, redistrict this island. Have
the County Act amended so that the
three outside districts should not.
have so much to say as Honolulu.
There are now twelve members of
tho House of Representatives from
Oahu, lot there be one lo each 500 of
population. The city of Honolulu
should have more representajiou on
tho Board of Supervisors. Here it
takes 2700 voter to elect a Super
visor, yot a Supervisor was elected
in November with 10L votes in one of
tho outside distrusts and with 150
votes in another. Under .these cir
cumstances the three outside super
visors should not have so much to
say as the three supervisors elected
from tho district of Honolulu.
SENATOR O. SMITH The
liquor law should be amended first. I
believe in a higher license with a
limit to the number of licenso issued.
Next, enact a primary law.
Third, appoint a commission to
make a thorough investigation of,and
report upon, the subject of taxation,
the relation that the ccunties bear
to tho Territory and tho proper divi
sion of taxes between the two. I 'tm
not in favor of frequent 'changes in
the system of taxation and believe, it
should be the subject of careful study,
especially in regard to the apportion
nient of the revenues.
Fourth, adequate provision should
be made for educational purposes.
SENATOR CHILLING WORTH
Pass the appropriations bills jbe
fore any thing else. Wo can thus give
them more time and more careful
consideration than they usually re
ceive. By doing this we can also
save, a lot of time that is usually de
voted to the consideration of bills ol
a private nature that are far less
Doctor Augusts Montenegro, gov
ernor of Para, in his annual message
to the State legislative assembly,
takes a position similar to thatof the
governor of Amaznnas as to the
future of the' Brazilian rubber in
dustry, and the necessity of planting
rubber trees and cultivating them as
an ugricultural enterprise in .the
great Amazon Valley if the country's
rubber Industry is to be protected
and established upon a firm and last
in basis. He says;
"Speaking of production, it is uiy
duty to call tho atteiilk-n of rubber
workers to the necessity of following
the example of other countries, and
lo Uansform our merely extractive
industry to a trusty agricultural in
tercst. With a soil privileged liko
ours, the i.atural home of the hevea.
we must remember the future and
take care to renew and increase the
productive area by plantation. It
costs little to assimilate tho lessons
learned by other countries where the
hevea is being planted on a ratimal
and methodic system."
Embodied in the message of tho
governor is a table showing the
amount of rubber produced and ship
ped abroad in the great Amazon rub
bei country, including not only the
Brazilian ports of Para and Mauaos,
but the Peruvian port of Iquitos us
well. This tabl shows tho total ox
pot ts July, 11)05, to June 190(5, in
clusive, to be as follows m pounds:
G rade. To Europo. To U. S.
Fine 23,029,55:1 13,C2G,58i
Medium 3,741,038. 3,080,943
Sernamby 7,780,933 11,415,998
Caucho 8,887,587 '3,197,757
Total...... 44,039,111 31,321,282
Of the 75,300,000 pounds sent by
the threo tiorts tho'Uuitcd States
received about 40 por cent. .Tho
proportion' of tho Brazilian rubber
crop for 1901 taken by tho United
States was nearly 00 per ceirt,
American manufacturers taking
nearly (1,000,000 pounds more during
that year than they did during the
llscal year ending June 30, 1900. Re.
ccntly there has been u very nm
terial change in the course of Brazil's
ubber trade with tho United States.
The United Stales now takes n larger
quantity of rubber than any other
nation, but it. continues to take
almost as iruch as all other markols,
Vipinouls from other ports being
Thotic 1-ormoHu Contracts.
Mr. Ilcdemann, manager of the
Honolulu Iron Works, has gone East,
accompanied by Mr. Bush, to com
plete his business arrangements in
connection with tho two now sugar
mill contracts for Formosa. Some of
tho material must be secured in the
East and it may even be necessary
to place ordors in Europe, as eastern
mil's will not guarantee to fill new
orders for iron and steel in h ss than
six months. Undoubtedly Milliken
Bros." of Now York, will be called
upon for some assistance. Time is
one of the important essentials in
tho contract, which approximates
$1,250,000, and as there are six
vacuum pans to be furnished the need
for prompt notion is apparent.
The quick, clean cut business meth
ods of the Japanese contractors very
favorably impressed Mr. Hedemann
They knew what they wanted and
submitted their ideas for his sug
gestions. They woro well informed
as to the capacity of his plant, hav
ing tho assistance of a gentleman"
who was . formerly associated here
with'Mr. R. W. Irwin in the early
days of Japanese imtnigi ation, and
who was well acquainted with these
islands. Being assured as to the
time of delivery t o next question
was one of price, which they wanted
as low as possible with the best
workmanship. There was no question
of commissions, nothing but a clean,
net cash proposition with a willing
ness to make a cash payment on ac
count upon the signing of the con
tract-straight business, quick and
to the poi t throughout.
Evidently with a knowledge that
these sugar contracts were to be
placed, Mr. J. II. Arnold, United
Status Consul at Tainsui, reported
recently to the State Department as
follows: "American manufacturers
of sugar machinery should bear in
mind that the sugar industry in For
mosa is growing rapidly, and that
within the next few years many large
mills will be constructed. With the
growth of tins industry there will
also be u demand for tramway ma
terials." Hawaii gains by the era
ploymcnt of labor hero at good wages
and by tho local plant being able to
keep its skilled employees busy when
there is but little island demand for
their services, thus guaranteeing
that tho mill is always available for
local requirements. Trans Pacific

If anyone who knows not the reasons
impelling tho Japanese to emigrate
in large numbers to the Pacific Coast
and other spots in tho United States,
a glance al the military salary list of
Jr.pan will afford enlightenment. Tlio
pay of the Lieutenant General of the
Unileu Stutes Army is $11,000 per
annum; the pay of a Mojor-General,
$7500; of a Brigadier-General, $5500;
of a Colonel," $3500; of a Captain
mounted and of a chaplain and vari
ous other officers, such as regimental
Adjutuuts, '$2,000 a year.
Tho Japanese year book, just issu
ed, shows that tho commanding
General of tho Japanese Army, when
serving with tho colors receives the
princely salaiy of $1500, nnd a liko
amount for extraordinary expenses,
or a total of $3000 a year. A Lieu
tenant General receives, including
Iho expense account, the sum of $2000
a year; a Major General $1575; a
Colpnwl, S117G; a Captain, $120, The
scale of pay in tho navy is equal to
thai in the army, and Togo, the ad
miral of the navy, receives $3000 a
Tho pay in civil positions is like-
wise exceedingly moderate, The
presiding Judge in the .highest im
pcrla! court, who holds a position
analogous to our Chief Justice of the
Supreme Court, receives $2500 a
year. With tho exception of the
Prime Minister of tho empire, no per
son holding oflico receives a higher
salary thau $3000 a year. Tho lm-
perlal Government recognizes the
fact that the cost of living Or, at any
rate, the scale of expenditure in
othi r countries, is different, nnd
though tho Embassadors to Lindon,
Washington and Paris aro paid in
sn'aray only $3090 a year, tho sum
of $15,000 o year is allotted to each
for entertainment and other ex
The maximum regular pay of a full
professor' at the Imperial University
at Tokio is $800 a year, and u Jap
anese laborer in San Francisco, or at
almost any point on the Paeiflc Coast,
can easily make as much in a year as
the president of a university in
The Mikado's einp.rcis the land ol
the simple lif , and the men in official
position, dependent upon their sala
ries, must adjust their mode of exis
tence to accoid with the simple
salary. Tho temptation for the ad
venturous Japanese to seek the El
Dorado is, therefore, Irresistible.
