A BUSINESS DIRECTORY.
With this issue we publish a brief
business directory embracing the
names and professions or occupa
tions of our regular advertisers. We
believe that it will be found useful
not only to residents in the Islands,
but more especially to visitors and
strangers who arc now arriving in
Honolulu in large numbers. The
list may not perhaps be quite accu
rate and we shall be pleased to hear
of any omissions or inaccuracies
that may have occurred.
EXODUS FROM A SUGAR GROWING
A perusal of the 7W- Weekly
Gleaner, published a Kingston, Ja
maica, shows thai the labor question
is there exciting considerable atten
tion. The following extracts from
that paper are of interest:
"In 188". 13,K-18 laborers left for
the Isthmus, and only -1. 092 returned.
In 1881 the Canal agent? are very
active, and if the immigration con
tinues as it has commenced, 10,(J00
to .10,000 more will depart in tliis
year. It must bo borne in inwul
that those who leave are prinurfinlly
adult working men. ,"
"The effect of so large an immi
gration of the labeling population
to the Isthmus wiVf be very serious
to the proprietors of estates, as well
as to the people who remain. Un
less soinc active efforts are made to
fill up" the vacancies caused by the
departure of so many of our working
' population by immigration, serious
results must arise. Unfortunately,
the prices of our principal exports
mo so low, that we cannot affoul to
pay higher wages (although the
people might earn more if they could
"The exodus frjmi Jamaica is at
present second only to the "New
Departure," and has excited much
anxiety in the minds of many per
sons. Fears are expressed that tho
exodus is of a nature to deprive- us of
that labor which is requisite for the
prosperity of the Island."
In 1881 tho population was :)77,.
04ft and the total amount of sugar
exported raw 40,190 hogsheads. In
1881 the population was .80,801,
an increase of 200,000 in less than
forty years ; tho quantity of sugar
exported had, however, decreased to
88,592 lipgsUeuds, or a difference of
nearly 8,000 hhds. "While the
"products of the sugar estates" had
fallen off there was an "increased
population of vast importance."
Many new industries had sprung into
life; but "that there arc estates that
suffer for the want of labor, is tin
deninble ; but it is a chronic com
plaint, for long before the Canal
was thought of, the complaint of
want of labor existed, and it is a
Btianjjo anomaly that with an in
crease of over i!00,000 people, in
less than forty years, our staple
products have decreased. There
must be something radically wrong
.somewhere, but how to get at the
wrong will be a hard nut to crack."

Akin and All Youug, were charged
with having opium in their posses

for the defence. Captain Marcos,
having received certain information
from two Celestial informers who
were at enmity with Ah Young, made
a raid upon the abode of that gentle
man and captured a quantity of the
smokj' impliments. The defence
offered was thai the two informers
had put up a job on Ah Young and,
having placed the pipes and opium
in his room, had then given informa
tion to the police. Akin was dis
charged but Ah Young was sentenced
to a month's imprisonment at hard
labor and fined $50. An appeal was
noted to the Supreme Comt.

THE CAZETTE'S ACCUSATION.
Ennoi: Bi'Mjim: I was sur
prised to sccyflie following sentence
in the lasjissuc of the Gazette:
"Ijirportcrs are inclined to under
value the invoice values of their
dutiable goods, in order to lessen
the duties ; even goods exempt from
duty are apt to be undervalued, in
order to save the consular fees."
This is neither more nor less than
a direct accusation of dishonesty
against tho merchants of San Fran
cisco and Honolulu. The Editor of
the G(ir.cltc should know, if he
doesn't, that shippers arc required
to declare the valuation of their con
signments on affidavit. Docs he
mean that they swear falsely and
"salt" their invoices; or that they
have one invoice for the Custom
House and another for the trade.
What an honorable man a merchant
must be who would "undervalue"
his goods "in order to Have the con
The duties levied in this Kingdom,
on imported goods, are by no means
heavy. They arc not so heavy as in
the United States. Is it then pro
bable that our merchants would run
the risk, and subsequent penalties
consequent upon discovery, of "un
der valuing their invoices." I am
surprised to seo a paper of the stand

to represent the interests of tho mer
