There has been considerable fear
here amongst the planters and others
that if -we should lose the reciprocity
treaty with the States that we should
have no market for our sugar and
consequently the islnnds would be
ruined. British America has been
offered by some ns n probable sub
stitute, but it has been urged and
with creat show of reason that there
is not a suflicient market on the West
Coast there for our output.
Now, however, we offer another
substitute. Japan, teeming with her
millions, having a population about
two-thirds that of the States, in
terms of excellent friendship with
Hawaii, uses sugar throughout her
dominions. All classes use it nnd it
is entirely imported from Manilla,
and China. The price paid there is
from 7 to 11 cents a pound and the
quality is not so good as that raised
Let us then endeavour in case of
accidents to have a treaty concluded
with Japan excluding other sugars
by duties, and admitting Hawaiian
sugars free of duty.

A gkxurai vacation seems to ue
going ow. The Courts and the schools
arc shut up, and most people who can
get away arc out of town. Few vessels
are coming and fewer are In port. Little
or no sugar is coining in from the
plantations. In view of all tins it is
suggested that the proprietors of the
stores and warehouses should give their
clerks a vacation also. How does that
seem to 'he taken ?
SiGXATunns arc being obtained in
large numbers to a petition which is being
circulated amongst Hawaiians praying
the Board of Health to retain the
services of Dr. Fitch in Honolulu or at
least to leave him spend half his time
here. Yesterday over 1250 signatures
had been obtained by two-thirds of a
committee of 13 appointed by a meeting
held at Kaumakapili church. It is in
tended to wait on Mr. Gibson on Mon
day with the petition. The Hons. Lilika
lani and Lahilahl are on the committee.
It is currently reported that a certain
English Capitalist who wishes to start a
tram-car line here has declared his in.
teution to proceed to .lay the rails, etc.,
on the streets under the authority of a
written concession or agreement ob
tained by him from the late Minister of
the Interior, Mr. J. E. Bush. The
Government have the matter under con.
sidcration wo believe. The plans pro
pose to lay lines along all the principal
streets in the town. The late Legisla
ture refused to grant any concession for
this kind of thing, so why should it be
done now? And what authority has a
Minister of the Interior to grant any
The fire on the slopes of Punchbowl
on Thursday afternoon was caused by
the burning of joss-sticks at some
Chinese graves in a gorge at the back of
Punchbowl. Four wagon loads of Chi
namen went up there and performed
their usual ceremonies over the graves
of their countrymen and before depart
ing, put out, as they thought, all traces
of lire'. However tills was not so and
thefiro rapidly spread over tho slopes
and finally up to the top and over into
the crater. Here it did not do any da
mage beyond burning all the grass and
two or three old rotten gun-platforms.
The trees are said not to be injured. At
one time according to nn observer tho
llio in tho crater looked liko the seething
lava in a volcano. By the oxortlons of
tho police under the superintendence of
Mr. Dayton tho lire was finally extin

Editor Bulletin :- I think1 the
law as it stands about stopping a
debtor's passport is a fraud on tho
creditor. Now, suppose I owe a
debt here and eanuot get away from
Iloholulu what is to hinder me from
going to Mnui, or Hawaii, and get
ting away from there. There should
be law to make every person pay
their honest dues without any trou
ble to the man that gives credit. I
would like to know when a man has
constant work why lie should not be
made to pay liis bills when he is
vogue enough not to do so.
China is clearly determined to
oppose the establishment of France in
Tonquin. The Franch Ambassador
at Pekin reports that a force of 2000
Chinese troops has been marched
southward. Other and less authentic
intelligence states that the Chinese
Government is so bent upon resisting
a French occupation that it has col
lected an army not of two thousand,
but of fifty or sixty thousand upon
frontier, the troop's well armed .with
new rifles, and supported with a
strong fieet of gunbpnts and tor
pedoes. All this may be a trifle
exaggerated, but the French Govern
ment will do well not to entei too
lightly upon an enterprise which will
bring them into collision, with- the
whole armed strength of China.
What that strength is may be still
misunderstood in France. The
Chinese fleet is not to be despised'.
It contnms a couple of ironclads, a
monitor, two frigates, twelve
corvettes, thirty gunboats, and a
large number of smaller vessels.
Chinnmcn arc not bncVs.tilors, and
this licet will be fairly well manned.
As for the army, it is (500,000 strong
on paper, and if this number would
not stand the closest investigation,
at least half are good troops ready
to do well in a campaign. Fifty
thousand of them arc armed with
repeating rifles, and China is com
monly supposed to have made large
purchases in other arms of precision.
The organisation of her array may
not be above suspicion ; but a power
which can command nearly unlimted
resources, which has a population of
four hundred millions, untold wealth,
and a fanatical populatiqn, must be
opposed by more than 5000 Frcnch-
ment to secure victory to France.
The result of the coming struggle
will be watched with deep interest at
home. Home Neivs.

short time ago can hear of the
