Honolulu, March 8. It 19 more
than probable that the Japanese
Russian war will prove oi immense
benefit to the Hawaiian Islands.
This benefit will be of an indirect
character however, for it will con
cern the supply of labor for these
islands. The longer the war con
tinues the more likely is the labor
supply apt to increase.

last four years been chief adviser to
the Korean emperor, is a through

He is going to the Mainland on

the war continues it is likqly to

"The reports," he said "received
in Korea from the Koreans in the
Hawaiian Islands have been yery
favorable indeed and there is a desire
on the part of Koreans to come to
these islands. The Koreans are
not a warlike people. They are an
agricultural race and they prefer to
engage in that pursuit to following
the profession of arms. The war
and the presence of the Japanese
troops in Korea are likely to cause
many Koreans to come to this
country. I believe that many will
come to these islands during the

they were working on the sugar

Washington, D. C, Feb. 21. A
belated report from Max J. Baehr,
Consul at Cienfugos, on the sugar
crop in Cuba, written late in De
cember last, is made public by the
Department of Commerce and Labor
"Sugar grinding in the districts
tributary to Cienfugos is now be
ginning under most auspicious cir
cumstances, and the planters, elated
over the recent passage by theUnited
States Congress of the long-delayed
reciprocity measure, are looking to
the future with optimistic eyes.
An approximate estimate of the
output of the leading 'igenips'
(sugar mills) in southern Santa
Clara for the grinding season of
1903-4 is given as 1,537,000 bags.
From these figures it will be seen
that the crop now at hand exceeds
that of any former year. Many are
already devising plans to make the
sugar crop oi the coming year phe

been untitled for several seasons, as
well as many acres of absolutely
virgin soil, will be brought under

Htory of Hon His Meeting
How the Australians break up a
public meeting is shown in the ac
count given by the Sydney Herald
of Feb. 18, of the turmoil in which
Prophet Dowie fouud himself. A
part of the story follows:
When the meeting opened punct
ually at 8 o'clock the hall flooring
and balcony was crowded. Mr.
Dowie on making his appearance
received a cordial reception, and
everything pointed to a rqpst suc
cessful meeting. Proceedings com
menced by the singing of a hymn,
followed by prayer, offered by
Overseer Voliva, chief of the Zion
church in Australasia.
Overseer Hawkens, in introduc
ing Mr. Dowie said he scarcely
thought that such an audience
would refuse to hear the Overseer
uenerai, ana asicea tnat no one
would permit interruption. He ap
pealed to every good, citizen to
maintain perfect order. (Cheers,
and a voice: "Good enough").
"I'm very thankful fpr what I
feel to be a sympathetic chord in
hearts." commenced Mr. Dowie.
"My heart," he continued, but was
so affected that he, could not speak
for some time. Regaining his com
posure he continued, "I would have
been very sorry to have left Sydney
with the thought that my last meet
ing had been disturbed. I shall
talk to you concerning the Chris
tian church of Zion, its foundation,
and what has led up to its being a
really workable model city. I will
first read to you a chapter from
Isaiah that is very much in our
hearts in Zion."
On the conclusion of the reading
of the lesson cheers were given,
which led Overseer Hawkens to
say, "I ask the law-.abiding to
watch those who whistle, and per
haps something will happen. .Point
out deliberate interrupters." (In
terruption and cheers follow).
Mr. Dowie then went on to des
cribe the situation and area of Zion
City. He pointed out that in two
and a half years over 10,000 per
sons bad settled in the city, and
that they had a central tabernacle
which seated 7000 people. It was
far too small. Now Zionites were
building a tabernacle that would
seat 16,000 people.
A voice: "Why don't you build
pne in Sydney?"
,Mr. Dowie: "Have we enough
people in Sydney to build a taber
Cries of "Yes" and "No," and
Mr. Dowie: "Be kind to me to
night; treat me with a little cour
tesy." He then went on to describe
women's work in Zion and of the
visit of the Zionites to New York,
where he said that every house,
every commercial establishment,
bad been visited, and he had ad
dressed large meetings nightly.
Further interruptions occurred,
and several men were removed from
the back of the hall, and during the
accompanying commotion hymns
were sung to restore order.
Mr. Dowie (angrily): "I can
not go on talking, straining my
voice like this. I am not speaking
for money. (Derisive cheers.) I
am not speaking for money, I re
peat,," be said. "I have all the
money I need. (Incredulous whis
tles.) I urn speaking now in the
interests of humanity, and trying to
give you a message that will be a
message " (Disorder.) Con
tinuing Mr. Dowie said that about
a thousand men were employed in
be building and manufacturing
association, and that 70 per cent of
profit made on contract went to the
workmen, 20 per ccut to the asso
ciation, and 10 per cent to the
church. Auother industry
(j general disorder, and the ejectment
of several of the noisy elemeut.)
Singing was again resorted to, but
the crowd were evidently becoming
out of baud, and Mr. Dowie de
manded in a loud voice:
"Do you want me to continue
speaking?" A storm of noes an
swered the question. "I only want
to say that in Ziou City we have
found the solution of the great
social problem of progress "
Mr. Dowie's voice was here
drowned by a perfect uproar, and
whilst vainly trying to make hint-
I self heard above the pandemonium,
a serious disturbance occurred,
which had the effect of bringing the
meeting to an abrupt end thenrrcst
of a prominent Zionist and another
member of Mr. Dowie's staff. The
trouble started in the center of the
hall, where there was a great crush.
Very little attention was bcii;g paid
to the remarks of the preacher.
The crowd found diversion in little
trivialities which occurred around
them, and amused themselves every
now and again in breaking into
song. The noise from the crush
gradually grew louder, nnd a man
in uniform, who acts as a bodyguard
to Mr. Dowie, stepped off the plat
form, with Pastor Voliva, overseer
of the Zionist movement in Austra
lia. Both made their way to the
seat of the disturbance. They
squeezed through the crowd towards
those who wire screeching at the
top of their voices and said some
thing to them. They replied with
hoots and jeers, and several police
men then made their way forward
to render assistance.
Mr. W. N. Willis, member of the
State Legislature, at this juncture
walked down the center of the hall,
and became interested in the disturb
ance. He was heard dmidst the din
to order a policeman to arrest Pastor
Voliva and another Zionist, named
Middleton, on the ground that they
had used threatening language to
him. This unexpected develop
ment created groat excitement, and
the meeting was immediately in an
uproar. A slight delay ensued be
fore the policemen carried out the
request, as they were taken by com
plete surprise. ,
In the meantime the audience
pressed round to see the nature of
the trouble. The result was that
the policemen were roughly handled
in their endeavors to keep the crowd
away, and great disorder ensued.
Several additional policemen made
their way with difficulty to the seat
of the disturbance, and Voliva and
Middleton, who were astounded at
the turn of events, were escorted
through the crowd. This task was
.accomplished with the utmost diffi
culty, and it was fortuuate that no
one was seriously injured. The
efforts of the police to force back
the people were fruitless, and the
constables were simply pushed and
forced towards the nearest exit door.
The member for the Barwon
.mounted a chair and, waving a cane
and gesticulating vigorously, tried
to address some remarks to a crowd
which surged round him. What
he said, however, was absolutely
drowned in the din. Noticing him
in an elevated position, the crowd
cheered him, and these cheers were
taken up by the majority present.
Meanwhile Mr. Dowie was advis
ed by those on the platform that it
was useless to continue his sermon,
and he beat a hasty retreat through
the platform door, followed by his
immediate adherents. Then a sec
tion of youths, crying "We want
Dowie," forced their way towards
the organ gallery, with the evident
intention of molesting the Zionist
leader, but they were repelled by a
detachment of police, headed by
Sub-Inspector Sherwood. This
particular crowd, foiled in their
object, surged back into the body
of the hall, and contented themselves
, with shouting after the Zionists, t
and interspersing their remarks t
with combined choruses of "Bring
out your prophet." All the pop
ular songs were tried in turn, and
this disorder was continued for
about a quarter of an hour, when
the ball began to gradually empty.
When Mr. Dowie and his follower
left the platform, some one, sur
rounded by a yelling crowd, shouted
"he's getting away: outside after
him." Immediately there was a
scramble amongst a lot of young
fellows to get out of the hall. They
were followed by others, and all .
congregated outside with the'
avowed intention of greeting Mr. ,
Dowie in a very hostile manner. '
The shouts of "We want Dowie,"
were at times aeaiemng. Air.
Dowie, however, had been made
aware of the throng of people in
the front of the Town Hall, and
immediately he left the platform he
made bis way into a vehicle which
was waiting at the back of the
building in a most unfrequented
place. A side gate was opened,
and thecab was at the Hotel Aus
tralia long before the crowd had
time to realize that Mr. Dowie had
left the precincts of the building.
