The cob: of the Filpinos has pro
gressed through various stages
which seem to make pertinent the
statement of Governor Taft, that
their condition will becouic worse
before it is better. From the ques
tion of acquisition we have nassed
to that of organization, and from
the latter to that of relief. Six years
of war in the islands have been fol
lowed by calamities which have
nearly prostrated the industries,
brought the people there to the
verge of starvation. Reports tell of
the rinderpest scourge, which, at
tacking the carabao, has practical
ly removed the only dependence of
the agriculturist for tilling and
transportation. The loss of the
cattle has brought about a failure
of the rice crops the prime food
product of the Philippines and
famine threatens. Capital is slow
about embarking in Philippine in
dustries, and commerce is not at all
satisfactory. The last annual re
port showed that, exclusive of
quartermasters' stores, the imports
amounted to $41,000,000, while the
exports were only $27,000,000.
The extreme xlrop in the price of
silver has caused stagnation in com
mercial circles, and suffering for the
pDor, who, with the earnings of a
depreciated1 currency, can not buy
the necessaries of life. Hunger
means desperation, and threatens a
widespread recrudescence of ladron
ism, which is another term for brig
andage. In fact, cattle-stealing is
prevalent to such an extent in some
ot the provinces that Governor
Taft reluctantly contemplates the
necessity of calling out the military
to suppress it. As if this was not
sufficient burden for a people grop
ing toward civilization, cholera is
abroad in the archipelago. To the
first of November more than 100,000
had been reported, of which two-
thirds had terminated fatally. When
the transport Thomas left there last,
thirty new cases a day was the
average for Manila alone, Consider
ing the character of the people, and
and their aversion to modern meth
ods of treatment in disease, it is
likely that these figures do not re
veal the extent of havoc caused by
the plague. Smallpox, bubonic pla
gue, and leprosy have also been re
markably active in the islands dur
ing the last year. What is to be
done is a matter for Congress, and
that body has trouble to agree on
all measures which have been pro
posed. Following Governor Taft's
annual report, the administration
called on Congress for a relief fund
of $3,000,000, and we believe that
now an appropriation of $2,300,000,
has passed both Houses. Currency
measures for relief, which Governor
Taft considered extremely pressing,
hang fire. The House bill extend
ing the American system of coinage
to the islands has been passed, but
is not favored by the Senate, it
being feared that too violent a
change in monetary conditions
would do more harm than good.
So, also, the proposition to remit
75 per cent ol Dingley tariff rates
on imports from the Philippines is
being delayed, though t had the
warm approval of Governor Taft

Honolulu, March 10. A breeze
was caused just before adjourn
ment by the resolution introduced
by Representative Keliinoi, which
was referred to a committee con
sisting oi Representatives Keliinoi,
Jaeger and Purely. The resolution
reads as follows:
Whereas, the Rapid Transit and
Land Company made and entered
into a legal agreement with the
Government of the Territory of
Hawaii, agreeing to give to the
Government one-half of their prof
its over and above 8 per cent on
the capital of the company, which
was then $500,000; and, whereas,
it is understood the said company
has since watered its stock to the
extent of $500,000 and, in addition
to this it is lurther said that the
company is placing a large amount
of their frofits in a construction
fund in which the Government has
no interest or account: therefore.
Resolved, That a committee of
three be appointed by the Speaker
to investigate the agreement, books
and accounts of said company ,ind
to ascertain the amounts of money
that should revert to the Govern
ment under the aforesaid agreement.

Another Small Farm Scheme.
II. W. S. Edmuudsv who lately
arrived from the Orient says that
negotiations are under way between
himself and the owners of the Ka
malo Sugar Company property by
which the 11,000 acres of that
esta.te are to become the property
of a corporation which will divide
it up into suitable sized sma'l farms
and induce American farmers to
come and settle on ir. The coroo-
ration will carry those who have
not capital enough to carry them
selves over the preliminary period
of planting. The security to the
company for the advances made,
will be labor to be performed by the
colonists for the corporation on lands
it will plant. Another feature of
the plans proposed is that the cor
poration will sell small farms on
the instalment plan, planting and
cultivating them for the purchasers,
under the latter's direction.

llrnvy Cut hi Prices or Cljcnrs.
New York, March. 8. What is
said to be the most remarkable cut
in retail box prices of imported
Havana cigars ever made in this
city was made today. The man
who smokes cigars has never had,
in recent years, such a chance to
get good cigars cheap as he will
Some retail dealers who have
been fightintr the United Citrar
Stores Company here, said it was
to help the independents. Others
thought the cut was made to knock
out the independents. The cut
was made by the Acker, Merrill &
Condit Company, who advertised
some of the best brands of cigars at
prices that astonished the retail
cigar men and jobbers.
The cuts range from- $1.20 to
$3.40 a hundred cigars below the
prices even of the independents.
In every instance but one, the new
prices quoted are lower than even
the jobbers' prices currently re
ported in the trade.
Strom? Words For Scandinavian
Christiania. March 8. Hen-
rik Ibsen, the famous Norwegian
poet and dramatist, in au interview
on the subiect of Scandinavian
unity, says that it is absolutely
necessary that small nations should
remember that under the law of
evolution they are certain to be
welded into larger ones. The only
choice offered to' smaller nations is
that they should unite of their own
free will, or be forcibly united by
"Politicians," said Ibsen, "who
talk of war between the Scandina
vian nations are reactionary, how
ever advanced may be the opinions
they profess. Only through econo
mic and intellectual co-operation
can small states progress or main
tain their place among the great
