THE HAWAIIAN STAR, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1!, 1893. SIX PAGES.

also out of office ; Mr. Thcophili il
Duvits, cx Consul fin Gteat Britain and
head o( the firm of Then. H. D.ivics &
Co., agents for the Canadian AuMr.m CI
steamship line ; and there is Mr. T.
Rain VV a ktrr, present Biltish Consul,
partner in the linn of ThtO, H. Davits
Co., who ate agents, itc.
W hile it is not thougiit got d policy
to wave the Untisli flan too much in
front of Uncle Sam, still it is jual II
well that the AmiriCMI ptopll should
be advised of facts that ,ire transpiring,
and these are current facta, It i, als u
a matter of hittwfj! that England's mili
tary advances are almost invariably
made along the lints of her commercial
outputs. The British trtdvr, in this
case Mr. Thenphilul DiVicl and his
partner, Mr T. Rain Walker, almost
invariably piomers the way for tbt
Biitish loldier and for ultimate absorp
tion. The Canadian-Pacific Australian
line of steamships is heavily lubsidifed
by Canada and the colonies. It has
entered into direct competition with
the American line of SprtcWtls from
San Francisco, which we do not subsi
dize, and it is onlv a question of time
when the British flig will have the
trade. May not this account lor the
military activity that was tecently re
ported fi. in ancouver?
This emphasim w hat was formerly
said of the trade and business antag
onisms ol Claus Spreckels and The
Ophitus Davies. But at present then
is a monarchist combination between
Sireckels, D.ivies, the English factum
in Honolulu and the Koyansts, a c in
glomeration not to be despised It is
decidedly amusing to those who know
these different factions to see them
joining forces. Spreckels in the in
terest of cheap labor to make money,
Davies for trade and money under the
cloak of the Princess, the Britishers in
Honolulu for political offices, and the
Royalists for free gin and a poppycock
petticoat g ivernnient. When these
tactions split what a tempest in a tea
pi. t there will be! How Spreckels will
abuse Davies when he finds he has no
more use for him, and that the Britisher
is securing his trade and Steamship
business! What limes there will be!
They are not very far off, either, and
they will create more talk and amuse
ment than , li the revolutions that have
g ne b I re.
Mr. ClatlS Spreckels has had so much
to say about the money he is g ing to
lose if the Hawaii. n Islands are an
nexed to the United States on account
of tils then being un.ib e to pr cure
any more Chinese cheap Lb r, th.a 1;
is just as well the people should know
what his pay r 11 amounts to. The
Hawaiian Ann' al for 18Q3 shows that
his Hom lu'u firm hold agencies f, r
ten sugar plantations, erupltying 5158
hands. The wage ratts of thest
labours is $16 per month for Ha
waiian natives, of whom there are very
few W' rking on the plantations; $19
per month lor Portuguese; about $13
and board for Chinese, while the J a -
ainse bi.ys, girls and Women gel about
$ 10 per month, and the J ipanese men
get From $12 50 to $15 per month
1 he average 1 f all these wag, s is
just about $15 1 er month, if $6 per
month he allowi d as the cost of feeding
the Chinese. It does not cost so much
t. feed a Chinaman, but It t 11 go at
that This brings the total pay roil of
Mr. Spreckels up to $7,737 per month
fr all his plantations, 1 r $92,824 per
annum. There are sixty I ur sugr
plantations in the Islands alt. g, thcr,
arid only ten are in the hands of Mr.
Spreckels. The other fifty four planta
tion owners are not kicking about any
advance in wages that they may be
called upon to pay their hands, and
why should Mr. Spreckels with his ten
plantations be presumed to voict the
views of the other fifty-four planters?
He does nothing of the sort. They
are not fearing and trembling now
because they may have to pay out
more wage money, although they are
not nearly 10 rich as Mr. Spreckels.
The Islands produce 130,000 tons of
sugar every year, if the plantations of
Mr. Spreckels grow 60,000 tons of
sugar, and this is doubtful. Though
he claims to own everything there, he
is only paying wages of $92 824 per
annum for his contract labor. This
means that each pound of sugar he
produces costs him less than one
twellth of a cent per pound for wages.
Is not this magnanimous? If Mr.
Spreckels were to be liberal and pay
his men as much as one-tenth of a cent
per pound of sugar that he products,
then his total pay r ill would only
amount to $1,200,000 yearly, or $232 50
per annum lor each labor- r, or almost
$20 per month each, in place of the
$15 per month that he now gives then ;
and this w u d bring the n jbove the
level of wages in L uisiana, which, he
says, "is the only place where they pay
anything like wages."
it seems strmge tht a man worth as
many millions as Mr. Spree k, is is should
be kicking because he may have to pay
for labor more than DIM twelfth of a
cent per pom d on his sngir. Be gen
erous, Mr. Spfcckels, and make It one
tenth of a cen'. Y u sell the sug.r f r
three cents per pound net to Mr. Cuius
Spieckels, the sugar refiner. What is
more, he d. ducts a quark r f a cent
per pound from the market pr ce before
paying for the 70,000 tons th t he buys
from the other planters, which amounts
to $350,000 yearly, or three and one
half luncl as much as he pays for all
his own lab r. In Other words, the
other planters are paying the $92 844
labor bill of Mr. Spreckels, and also
Contributing $257 176 besides to his
privy purse. What infernal rot this
n an Sprcckils talks about the c st of
his sugar plantation contract lab rl
One Who Knows.
The pri M 111 habit among men of
wealing bangles may be traced lo the

Prince of Wales wears one, while the
Duke of Edinburgh has a bracelet so

moved without a niching brought
