Bxperimeilt. much f a success as tin- innovation seems at present
to warrant one of the greatest problems of the territory will soon he
For great a many years the sugar industry has Keen the principal source
of revenue and the staple from which practically all of the residents of
this territory have derived their incomes. This is as equally true of the
professional man as the man who is engaged directly hy the planters.
A great many charges have hcen made against the sugar planters of
the island in regard to the kind of dwellings in which they keep their
lalioring men, the manner in which the lalmr is treated, the inadequate
wages paid and a dozen other accusations that are either untrc or un
warranted. The charge however that Orientals are employed ill great
numhers while those who are citizens or eligihle to Itecome citizens are
greatly in the minority is a fact that can not he denied and is a matter
that greatly concerns the authorities at Washington.
During the recent visit of the congressional party one of the leaders of
Congress had under consideration a plan that would compel the employ
ment of a greater numher of citizens
hy the planters in lieu of the great
sugar men for their product. This was the result of a strong protest hy
the heet sugar men against the local industry on the ground that the
former had to employ white men at white mens wages while the local
planters are employing Orientals almost exclusively.
If the Russians prove to hi- satisfactory which we helievc will lie the
case the territory should soon I' filled with this class of laUir and in
time we will have a class of people who will develop thousands of acres
of lands that arc now harren.
If the Russians hrought here are of the class we helievc them to he
they should prove to lie a most valuahle asset of the country.
It will require tact and patience to mold the new recruits into the ways
of the country hut that can he done. If the Russians prove to he as
satisfactory lahor as we helievc they will the future of the sugar industry
is assured and investments in sugar stocks will continue to he in demand.

It appears .hnt the Korean who
stabbed the Marquis was in a mur
derous ferment when he threw
himself at Ito. . The scene of the
tragedy was the railway station
where Ito and his party were about
to take the train for Yladivostock.
Ito was assaulted just as he was
coming into the building, the
Korean striking him three times,
two of the murderous cuts being in
the abdomen. The stateman lost
consciousness almost immediately
and died within twenty minutes.
The Japanese Consul (icneral at
Harbin, who was with the Marquis
and attempted to defend him from
the attack, was wounded, as were
two others. The Russian Minister
of Finance, who a to act as

Japanese and enabled the abler

drop their feuds and make jtossible
the formation of a united Japan.
In this Ito took a prominent part.
Ito visited the United States in
1 8(S for the purpose of studying
its financial history and on his re
turn introduced a decimal system
of money and a mint at Osaka.
It was Ito who first proposed the
abolition of the feudal system in

Chief Leal is
on Sick Leave.
Honolulu, October 25. From
present appearances" it would seem
that an attempt is being made to
blacken the character of Joseph
Leal, Chief of Detectives, whilst he
ia absent from the Territory and
unable to defend himself.
Leal, who is in bad health, left
on the last Alameda for the main
land, where he is going to visit the
hot springs in hopes of getting rid
of the rheumatism which has been
troubling him for a long time past.
Leafs trip to the coast is costing
him very little, as the steamship
company provided him with free
transportation and his society, the
Eagles, is making him an allow

Leal, before taking the position
of Chief of Detectives, was running
an automobiles for rent. He had
purchased the machine on the in
stallment plan, and, besides pay
ing a deposit, had to make month
ly payments of $100 to tin firm he
purchased the car from.
Prior to joining the police de
partment Leafs payments were
always on time, and sometimes
were made before tin y were actual
ly due. A iter becoming Chief of
Detectives. Leal got behind in his
payments and could not meet his
monthly obligations. The car, on
which he had paid a built $1,000,
was taker, away from him, and the

successful graft, and th general
