Year by year the number of per
sons attacked by the so-called mala
rial fever increases. People ap
p ;ar to get apclimated to it for by
the time it has attacked them for
three years in succession it docs so
only in a mild form. But why
should they be attacked by it at all?
What causes this malaria? Hono
lulu has the reputation of 0cing i
healthy place and the death-rate of
those actually belonging to the
placet's small. Hut there, is not a
month in the year in which some
ailment is not prevalent. Look at
the number5 of Doctors, all ap
parently flourishing by the practice
of their profession1 in the treatment
The cause of this constant pre
valence of ailments is the want of
drainage and the thick, heavy,
growth of trees preventing the sun's
rays from properly drying the damp
ground. A system of drainage could
be devised which would perfectly
provide for -the sanitation of Hono
lulu. Let the Government get a
- thoroughly scientific man from ab
road or one of our own local skilled
exports and have this done.
Doctor F. II. Enders, of Wailuku,
is not only a skilful Doctor of Me
dicine and a successful practitioner
of his profession, but is also widely
known on these islands as a gentle
man of more than ordinary enter
prise in matters outside of his profession.-
Of late he has been ex
perimenting in drying island fruits
. unci vegetables, by the Aldcn pro
cess. Some samples of his taro and
taro flour, cured by this process,
were on exhibition and attracted
considerable attention at the Ha
waiian Agricultural Society's show,
a couple of months ago ; and uow
this office is indebted to the Doctor's
thoughtful generosity for a box of
dried bananas, preserved by the
same process. These bananas are
thoroughly dried, but still retain the
peculiar luscious flavor of the fresh
fruit. With the view of testing
their booking' qualities, we passed
sonfe to"cr,tora" culinary 1 artist with
the request to make a trial, and have
to record that the result was. m
"eveiy way satisfactory. In fact,
.thetasters unanimously pronounced
thccooked article superior to the
drv fruit. As to their keeping
qualities, twc sec no reason why
dried bananas like those sent us by
"Dr. Enders, if carefully boxed,
should not keep as long in any cli
mate as raisins or figs. The writer,
who is not without experience in the
matter, would here take the liberty
to suggest that, of all the varieties
of bananas grown on these islands,
the kind known as the Chiua banana
'is the best to dry for eating in 'the
dry state, while for cooking pur
poses the Brazilian variety is pro
bably superior to all others. It is
also" of. importance .that the,; fruit

tenderness and flavor in the dry

COLONIAL ANNEXATION SCHEMES
If lie could return to earth, Captain
Cook would possibly be suprised'to
find the prodigious results of his
voyages of exploration. A hundred
years ago there was not, it, may be
presumed, a single white man per
manently lodated in Australasia.
Now there arc some three millions ol
them, and they arc begining to make
themselves heard. The young lions
of the Antipodes arc roaring for
prey. Queensland has annexed New
Guinea, whereupon Victoria says,
u Why should not I annex something
too ?" And so she proposes to take
possession of the Solomon Islands
and the New Hebrides. Worried by
these troublesome children of hers,
the overburdened old mother country
feels inclined to say, "First culti
vate your own gardens, my dears;
there's plenty of waste ground there,
I'm Btue." To which her children
reply, "There's a great ugly French
man loafing about, and if we don't
take these islands, he will." This
is really a very serious matter. The
newly-born colonial ambition of
France, which has lain dormant
since the fall of Quebec and the
death of Dupleix, seems to have
come nearly a century too late. All
the really colonisable parts of the
earth that is, places where Europe
ans can live, and labour, and
multiply are ahead' in the hands
of other nations. These Pacific
islands, with their limited area and
damp heat, can never be genuine
colonics. But they might lie utilised
as penal settlements; and the
might be developed into formidable
military and naval stations. Now,
to either of these contingencies
Australia strongly objects. She
know the virus of convictism only
too well, and she docs not want to
be inoculated with the French
variety of it; and she certainly does
not want to be surrounded by a
chain of forts and harbours .which, in
the event ofU war betweenrEriglnnd
nn I France, might render the in
vasion of her territory, and even the
seizure of her chief cities, a proba
ble, consequence." It is.frqm pruden
tial1 motives, then, rather tlian from
greed, that she cries for annexation.
The question, in its bftndcst extent,
ought to be seriously considered by
our'Goverjiment without, dckiy or.v
while they are deliberating, other
people may be found acting. The
