It passes understanding how tho
Hawaiian Sugar Commission came to
make the extraordinary statement
that tho majority of the Hawaiian
sugar planters arc not American, or
in their own language, "that it is
not true that Americans own the
monopoly of the planting interest of
the islands ; that, on the contraiy,
they own a comparatively small part
of the plantations." Possibly the
commissioners confounded the sugar
factors of Honolulu with the planters,
but of the six firms in that business
three, Messrs. "W. G-. Irwin &Co.,
Castle & Cooke and Brewor & Co, are
Americans. What is sometimes
called "the missirniarj' element,"
that is, tho sons of missionaries, and
which is largely engaged in planting,
is all American, in blood awl sympa
thy, for their fathers were sent out
forty years ago by the American
Missionary Society. The majority
of the stock of tho incorporated com
panies engaged in sugar planting is
owned by Americans or the descend
ants of Americans. 'A few English,
Scotch and Germans arc, interested
in sugar planting,, but their number
may Tjc counted on ouc's lingers.
There is more San Francisco capital
invested in sugar planting in the
islands than English, Scotch and
German added together, and it is not
in sugar planting only that the Amer
ican element predominates. The of
ficial classes, other than the pure
Hawaiian, are mainly American or
of American descent. It is so also
with the wholesale houses, it is so
also in the legal and medical pro
fessions. Apart from the native ele
ment, Honolulu is as much of an
American city as San Francisco
itself. Indeed, of the white popula
tion of Honolulu, a larger propor
tion are either American or of Amer
ican descent, in whole or in part,
than in our own cosmopolitan eitj'.

PASSAIC CITY HERALD AND OUR
SELVES. The Passaic City Herald, a large
size weekly newspaper, printed and
published in Passaic City, New Jer
sey, devotes nearly a column to the
review of ourselves the Daily Bul
letin. Our "make-np and general
brisk appearance" are referred to
in flattering, terms, and surprise is
expressed at our "enterprise."
Our big, far-off contemporary
falls into a slight error in supposing,
from an advertisement in the Bul
letin, that the water supply of Hon
olulu is furnished by artesian wells.
For his information we would say
that our main water supply is col
lected from running streams, and
conducted to the city in pipes.
There are also numerous artesian
wells in the city and its suburbs,
mostly the property of private par
ties. The water from these wells is
"principally used for irrigation, but
many households are supplied en-
- tirely from the same source. This
water is believed to bo purer and
better than what comes from the orr
dinary source, and it is considered
quite a recommendation by those in
quest of residences to be assured
that "artesian water is laid on."
Wc would also explain, for the
benefit of tho Passaic City Meraldr
' the meaning of our standing notice,
. that the Bulletin is "forwarded to
,the other islands by kyery oitoutu
nity." Communication between tho
various islands of this group is ef-
' fected by means of steamers and
small sailing vessels, but with none
,t of these islands is tho communication
daily, and with some of the smaller
ones it is somewhat irregular. So
ive cannot regularly forward every
Quay's issue on the day of publica
tion, but wo do tho Vest we can
Ijrunder the circumstances, and for
eword' by every opportunity that
ccurrt ' i
jtivill -probably Interest the Pats
sale Herald to know that our little
two horse power Baxter Portable
Engine gives the most complete sat
isfaction. It has now been in uso
nearly four months, and wc have not
one word of complaint to make. It
occupies so little spece, consumes a
wonderfully small amount of fuel,
.gets up steam in a very few minutes,
runs so smoothly and noiselessly that
it cannot be heard half way across
our office, and furnishes all tho
power wc need to run two cylinder
and two job presses ; it is a perfect
little gem of a little giant. "Wc
doubt if any engine made is so fully
adapted to the requirements of a
printing office as the Baxter. The
probability is that Mr. Todd, the
manufacturer, will ere long receive
other orders from Honolulu, for
several parties have been "watching
the movements" of our little pet,
with the view of investing.
For the benefit of our own readers
we would add that the Baxter Por
table Engines arc manufactured by
J. C. Todd, P,atcrson, New Jersey,
or No. 17 Barclay Street. New York.
They are made in six different sizes,
with boiler attached, from one to
four horse power, and vary in price
from $150 to $350. Messrs. Palmer
& Rcy, 405 and -107 Sausome Street,
San Francisco, arc agents for Cali
fornia. Ours was imported for lib
by Messrs. Ilackfeld & Co., and no
doubt the tame firm would willingly
and promptly attend to similar orders
Lord Rosebery, (lion. Arch, P.
Primrose), who is expected to arrive
hero on the Zcalandia, is a Scotch
peer. He was born in .187, and
succeeded to the title in 18G8. ' He
married a Miss Rothschild, and has
been, until lately, Sir William
Ilarcourt's second at the Home
Oflice. Concerning his visit to
Australia a writer to the Melbourne
Age says. "Heprossesses eloquence,
cncigy, and a good share of adminis
trative ability. Bj' virtue of these
qualities, and of his adherence to
Liberal principles, the heir of ,the
Primroses is bound at some future
date to resume a place in the govern
ing, as opposed to the governed
classes of this country. This makes
it especially desirable that he should
be brought to understand, and if
possible be induced to sympathise
with, the aims and aspirations of
that free democracy whose past gives
higher pledges to the future than
that of any existing country, exdept
Sydney. I have the best authority
for saying that Lord Rosebery has
no public object in his mission,
which r is purely one of personal
enjoyment and curiosity. Rumour
hath it 'that he is"' meditating
joining one of the big syndicates. If
rumour for once be on the right
track, it is probable that Lord Rose
bery will penetrate into Western
Australia or Queensland. ' At pre
sent it is' not his intention to make
any stay at Adelaide, and it is quite
possible that he may proceed direct
on, to Sydney. It is, however, his
fixed purpose either going or. return
ing to stay, somoi time in Melbourne,
and he1 will probably excui'sionise
considerably in Victoria during .his
visit1. Lady Rosebery is, 'I bejieve
to accompany her lord." ' '
