The Garden Island will have

These will speak for themselves as
appear. On the whole, the

st newspaper the island has
haii', and one the influence
iich' may be for the better
,of her institutions and her
"Trentki'stics," a business
bulletin issued by the Trent Trust
Company speaking ot the sugar
situation, says. "While we do not
anticipate a much further reduc
tion in .price, owing to the fact
that the tendency will be to store
sugars rather than sell below the
cost of production, it is neverthe
less possible that a gradual decline
to $3 per 100 lbs. by March 1st.
This opinion, which seems to be
borne out by the forecasts of Wil-
lett it Gray, is entitled to more
than ordinary consideration. At
the same time it may be wondered
if the deductions are well founded
1 he present slump was not unex
pected. Markets are nervous, and
in the case of sugar it is particular
ly so. Fear of the effect of the re
duction in the tariff, more thnn
the reduction itself, ca us e d the
slump. The signing of the tariff
bill was followed bv a scramble to
negotiate contracts on future. An
ticipiting more advantageous
terms later, the dealers in sugar
have held off. The result was most
The pending Cuban crop is es
timated at 2.428,537 long tons and
the European crop at 8,485,000
long tons. These figures are large,
but not necessarily alarming when
the constantly increasing demand
for sugar is taken into account.
In fact it is a question whether
the world to-day will not absorb
that amount of sugar more readily
than it did the much shorter out
put of a very few yeais ago.
The immediate situation is bad,
yes; but it is not clear wnv we in
Hawaii should flop into hysterics
about it. Matters will adjust them
selves In a short time nervous
ness will have passed, and confi
dence will take its place. There
are indications that this very thing
is happening now.
The sugar business of the United
States has been severely jarred,
but probably not so permanently
injured as some people had im;.-
gined. Prices will eventually re
turn to normal, andwhen they do
the legislation which brought about
a change in a very satisfactory sys
tem will likely prove the veriest

This issue of the Garden Island
is gotten out under exceptional-
diffuMilt circumstances. In tlie
-jW davs almost the entire ad-
g section of the paper had
-v. jed; ant, to make mat-
,a portion of the me
Ve wu' unavoidably de
Mkvork Other diffieul-
'j riifountered. It is
r4eftcti that the paper
'on't happen again.
Should Work Both Ways.
The Honolulu Ad. Club Com
mittee of the Mid-Pacific Carnival,
which is represented on this island
bjrMr. Mahluin, of Waimea,
has issued more or less broad-cast
over Kauai a prospectus of a pro
posed corporation to be known as
the "Mid-Pacific Carnival, Ltd ,
together with a request for subs
criptions to the stock ot the same.
Kauai kokuas this proposition,
or any other proposition that will
augment the volume and value of
the tourist business,. But, serious
ly, is Kauai receiving her just
share ot the tourist business al
ready developed? And, if not, why?
The Promotion Committee is a
good thing, the Ad. Club is all
right, the Carnival Committee is
tip-top and the whole proposition
is o. k. But let these organiza
tions think just a little more of
Kauai; boost Kauai to the tourist
and see to i t that a reasonable
number include the Garden Island
in their itineraries. When this is
done, Kauai will be there with
caps and bells on any promotion
The advice of Delegate Kuhio
in regard to the Federal port mat
ter, published elsewhere in this is
sue, is timely. Let the people unite
on one place or the other, and
stick to that one place until the
project is an accomplished fact,
Results will quickly be disclosed,
and, if thev are satisfactory(as will
probably be the case) a united
fight may be made for a second
port. "United we stand, divided,
we fall" is an expression coined
for another purpose, but it fits the
present case to a dot. Come solid
ly together on one thing at a time,
and success is brought nearer.
Community division and quibbling
over matters of public improve
ment are the most active agencies
of delay and disappointment.

a moral effect, even if there prov
