PORTO RICO for obvious reasons produces tobacco of vary
ing degrees of excellence. The bad impression caused
originally by careless cultivation and manufacture of the?
tobacco, due to inexperience, lias now been dispelled, and those
smokers who desire a cigar with more aroma than the flat-tasting
domestic cigar unmixed with Havana, and still lacking the
overpowering heaviness of the latter, at a reasonable price, find
their choice in the Porto Ricnu cigars. For this reason it is
smoked in offices' during business hours with every sense of
satisfaction by many in whose estimation Cuban cigars hold
first place for quality, and that portion of the general public
which isfrugal on this item of expenditure finds it a good substi
tute for high-priced Ilavanas. Albert A. Void in New York Sun

The indifference of Congress to
appropriating money for any of the
islands, whether it be Hawaii,
Porto Rico, or the Philippines can
well be borne in mind by sub
stantial people of Hitunii, who nre
looking forwurd to appropriations
next winter for important wrrks.
In the last eight or ten mofllhsa'
good deal of excellent iufonimtiou
has been disseminated here among
influential public men about the
needs of the islands. Business in
terests of Hawaii cannot do too
much, when Congress has reassem
bled, to impress upon both houses
by petitions find otherwise the im
portance of harbor appropriations.
Delegate Kalauianaole ana Mr.
Charles Clark, as has been stated
in these letters, did much in care
fully prepared statements mailed
to every Senator and member to
show what the needs of the harbors
atHilonud Honolulu arc. Hut there
will be room for iteration and re
iteration, backed up by shipping
and commercial interests. Members
of both houses of Congress forget
quickly nearly everything that does
not pertain to their own states or
The committees of both houses
should be supplied early with com
plete data, following well establish
ed precedents in such matters, and
also as far as possible with
favorable letters from Departmental
officials. Probably a large part of
this work has already been done or
is well under way by those who
have Hawaiian interests in charge.
But complete preparation and tact
ful management will be essential jn
the highest degree to secure any
considerable appropriations for Ha
waii at the next session ofCongre?.

Father Makes Return of Child us
Peoria, Ills. Nov. 2. Special.
D. O. Boyle, in scheduling his per
sonal property with the courtsTb
prevent a levy, has raised the grave
question of whether a daughter
shall be considered an asset or a
liability. According to the solution
of that problem it will be deter
mined whether the sum of his
household effects plus two daughters
"of age" aggregate $400.
This perplexing point of law was
broached in the court of Justice
Gebke, where the papers are on
file, detailing in the midst of a
rather meagre list of furnishings
Boyle's two daughters, IJHa and
Anna. It is doubtful, attorneys
say, whether the fact has been
touched upon in the text-books or
wheth'er the highest authorities
have yet bent their minds to the
Those concerned in the case are
ransacking dusty libraries and com
piling all references, however re
mote, to similar schedules filed
with judges now passed beyond
the pale. Meanwhile Boyle's
creditors are extremely uneasy
about their $7.
An excerpt from the schedule
filed by Mr. Boyle, including the
perplexing items, was secured with
great difficulty and runs as follows:
"One broken set dishes, washing
utensils, three tubs, wringer, set
garden tools, daughter Klla of age,
one hall tree, four pillows, one
stove, one set dishes, one couch,
daugther Anna of age, set of dishes."
Slaughter of War.
The death roll due to wars dur
ing the last century, Professor C.
Richer, of the faculty of medicine
in Paris, sums up in a grand total
of 14,000,000. He divides this as
follows; Napoleonic wars, 8,000,
000; Crimean wars, 300,000; Italian
wars, 300,000; American civil war,
500,000; Franco-German war, 80,
000; Russo-Turskish war, 400,600;
civil wars in South America, 500,
000; various colonial expeditions in

Chicago, Oct. 20,. The invasion
of the American industrial field by
Jnpanese laborers is feared by Presi
dent Michael Donnelly of the
Butcher Workmen' Union. To
head off the Japanese, Donnelly
will introduce a resolution nt the
convention of the American Federa
tion of Labor in San Francisco next
month, calling for the enactment of
legislation excluding them from the
The matter was brought to Don
nelly's attention by a call made on
him by K. Oknjima, n Japanese
who was seeking information re
garding conditions in the packing
plants. Mr. Okajima showed letters
of introduction to the packers re
commending him as the proper per
son to furnish them with Japanese
labor. He said he had been told
the employers of Chicago could give
work to 500 or 600 men of his
nationality. Pursuing his inquiries,
Mr. Okajima asked if Japanese
would be permitted in the Butcher
Workmens' Union. Donnellyshowed
the constitution of the labor organ
ization, which contains nothing
operating against the foreigners.
"I am sure, however," Donnelly
said "that the members of the
union would not consent to receiv
ing Japaeses and the members are
greater than the constitution."
Donnelly then hastened to pre
pare his Japanese exclusion resolu
tion. Collapse of Salt l.uku Trestle.
The construction of the great
timber trestle across Salt Lake on
the route of the Southern Pacific
Railroad to San Francisco, by
which it is expected to shot ten the
distance to that city by sixty miles,
has been suddenly brought to a
stop by the discovery of what has
so far proved to be a deep chasm of
soft material in which it is impos
sible to find a good bearing for the
piles. The weakness of the
structure was developed when the
bridge recently gave way under a
locomotive, which sank into the
lake, drowning the fireman. In
endeavoring to repair the break six
40-foot piles have been driven, one
above the other, without finding
the solid bed of the lake; while in
the vain hope of forming a founda
tion 100 carloads of stone, weighing
4,000,000 pounds, were unloaded
from Lhe trestle into the soft spot
without success, the mass being
apparently swallowed up as were
the piles. Many theories have
been advanced to explain the trou
ble, the most likely of which is that
the bottom of the lake is formed of
a layer of precipitated material, and 1
that at the point where the bridge
gave way this crust has broken
through, allowing the piles to pass
through a deep underlying stratum
of soft material. It is believed that
the trestle has been located across
the old bed of a river which has
been filled with an alluvial deposit
that is not sufficiently solid to carry
the weight of the trestle. It is
probable that if the engineers will
only keep on dumping sufficient
rock into the hole, they will in
time secure a firm foundation, but
it is likely to be a costly work; and
it teaches a lesson as to the ad
visability of carrying out a system
of borings before such a costly
bridge work as this across Salt
Lake is undertaken.
