A Honolulu (,'orrof.iioinlont tllrctt
Urinous for Flnnnclitl Kriucsslon.
The Honolulu correspondent of
Washington Star, writing under the
name of "Kamchaiuehn," iu a ie
cent issue of that paper, gives an
account of the financial depression
within the Territory, which is as
The very trying financial de
pression prevailing in this territory
for three years past is somewhat
abating. The cause was depression
in the price of sugar, Hawaii's
grctft 'staple, which rapidly Avent
down from eighty-five to sixty
five dollars a ton. At the latter
price none but a few of the very
best of our plantations could con
tinue to pay any dividends what
ever, while perhaps a majority
were working at a loss. Thus, a
large number of people holding
stocks in plantations hitherto pro
fitable wci: seriously impoverished,
and the market prices of their
shares sank to a very low figure.
This evil was greatly enhanced by
a very large and rash expansion
five years ago iu the plantation
business, when a large number of
new concerns were started and
heavily capitalized. In fact, Ha
waii passed through a very dis
astrous experience of a "boom"
and its consequent collapse. Many
investors were permanently im
poverished, and many left the is
lands as the effect of such losses
and of the general contraction of
The cause of the low price of
sugar was the immense expansion
in Kurope of the beet culture,
owing to the high bounties paid on
all sugar exported, to meet which
heavy tax was imposed upon the
home consumption. Those export
counties were an removcu some.
time ago, the home consumption
taxes were removed and home con
sumption in Europe increased. At
the same time the export so large
ly decreased that beets became less
profitable, and smaller crops were
planted. Altogether, and com
petition from beets has largely
abated, and Hawaii again begins
to realize eighty dollars a ton from
the product of her cane fields. But
in the meantime Honolulu as a city
has materially shrunk in the
number of its white inhabitants.
Rent have greatly gone down and'
real estate is much depressed. The
relieving effect in the rise in sugar
has not yet had time to manifest it
self o a great extent.
A peculiarly depressing efiect up
on the value of residence property
iu the more central parts of the
town has been experienced from a
recent enlargement of residence
property in breezy and healthy
suburbs, by a great extension of
transportation facilities by electric
traction during the past three
years. Honolulu now lias 111 use
about twenty miles of electric rail
way whose cars average fully nine
miles an hour. A fine equipment
of excellent cars is crowded during
much of each day. Delightful
suburbs from two to five miles
distant from the center are of easy
access. Property in tho'se suburbs
stands at good prices. But the old
residence sections have declined.

Kditok II11.0 Tkiiionh: Ques
tions arc asked so frequently as to
the educational advantages offered
advanced pupils in the Ililo Public
School that a few words rcgntding
its present status and its future
progress may be of general interest.
The nucleus of a future high
school is already established iu
connection with the Ililo grammar
school. At present it consists of
seven pupils pursuing high school
studies and nineteen others already
in advance of the eighth grammar
grade. The addition of a high
school teacher iu September, 1903,
made it possible to retain pupils
who would otherwise have been
crowded out to make room for
As, at present, a large percentage
of the grammar school is from
English speaking families, a con
tinued demand for high school
instruction is certain.
More space will be needed iu
September, 1905, to relieve the
already congested condition iu the
higher grades. It has been sug
gested that the main building of
the Union School be devoted to the
use of high school, grammar and
intermediate grades, until such
time as a high school building is
possible. This would necessitate
additional accommodations at the
Riverside Primary School.
It is interesting to note that the
Honolulu High School, some of
whose graduates are today in
Eastern colleges and iu reponsible
business positions, was, about
seven years ago, iu circumstances
similar to those now existing in
the Hilo Public School.
I can say that the Superintend
ent is entirely in accord with the
plan outlined in the foregoing
towards the establishment of a high
school in Hilo. I quote the follow
ing from one of his letters bearing
on the subject: "We gradually
build up our high schools here we
are going to build up our high
school on Maui, and it was my
intention to build the Hilo high
school up also. Of course the
whole thing hinges upon the means
supplied by the taxpayers of the
district. If people want high
schools they have to pay for them,
and they are rather expensive
luxuries when, the numbers are
small, and they are less expensive
where the numbers are large."
I might add turther that I am
certain that it is the intention of
the Superintendent to advance the
educational interests of the country
to the very highest degree that the
means of the Territory will allow;
and when the time is ripe for a
high school building iu Hilo that
the same will be created.
Very truly yours,
Chas. W. Baldwin,
Normal Inspector, 3rd Circuit.

Just for fun read this petition,
which certain democratic citizens
of Dunklin county, Mo have sent
the legislature of the state:
"To the Honorable Legislature
of the State of Missouri:
"Whereas, the undersigned, are

"Whereas, the said state of
Missouri has so far disgraced itself
that it went republican iu the last
election, so that no respectable and
law-abiding citizen (as we are) can,
without shame, acknowledge his
residence therein; now,
"Therefore, We would respect
fully petition and do hereby peti
tion and pray that you the honor
able legislature of the state of
Missouri, iu regular session con
vened, will cede and transfer the
aforesaid county of Dunklin to the
state of Arkansas, so that we may
again without shame acknowledge
the place of our citizenship."

When we are kept awake from
our fatigue the first thing to do is
to say over and over to ourselves
that we do not care whether we go
to sleep or not, in order to imbue
ourselves with a healthy in
difference about it. It will help to
ward gaining this wholesome in
difference to say: "I am too tired
to sleep, and therefore the first
thing for me to do is to get rested
in order to prepare for sleep. When
my brain is well rested it will go to
sleep; it cannot help it. When it
is well rested I will sleep just as
naturally as my lungs breathe or as
my heart beats."
Another thing to remember and
it is very important is that an
overtired brain needs more than
the usual nourishment. If you
have been awake for an hour and
it is three hours after your last
me;.l take half a cup or a cup of
hot milk. If you are awake for
another two hours take half a cup
more, and so, at intervals of about
two hours, so long as your are
awake throughout the night. Hot
milk is nourishing and and a seda
tive. It is not inconvenient to
have milk by the side of one's bed,
and a little saucepan and a spirit
