STRAIGHT IN THE FACE.
Our previous article, under the
above heading, has been the subject
of considerable comment in business
circles. A few have deprecated the
idea that the future prospects of the
Hawaiian Kingdom have a gloomy
aspect; but the majority concedes
that the opinion wc formerly ex
pressed is true, and "we must do
something." The disbelievers arc
those who feel, most kecnty, the
truth and who are afraid to face the
future. Some say that sorghum
sugar cannot affect this Kingdom,
but that Mexican produce will.
Others say the opposite. This shows
that the mercantile community is not
unanimous in opinion as to the cause
that may affect us, though it may be
unanimous as to a gloomy future.
Our morning contemporary says
"The laborers are still coming and
something like equilibrium between
supply and demand must eventually
be established. The price of labor
must then fall and possibly will fall
as much as the, price of sugar has
done. Wficn wc consider how large
a part of the cost of a crop of cane
goes for wages, itis evident that a
moderate fall in present rates would
make an important difference in the
cost of production."
We ask what "laborers are still
coming?" The only laborers, now
coming arc Portuguese the most
expensive labor on the islands. They
have been contracted for at certain
rates which will not pay the planter
with the price of sugar as it now
stands, and at which it is likely to
remain. The contract term of the
first imported Portuguese has almost
expired and tho new comer's will fill
their places at the same rates. There
is no other source from which to
obtain our labor supply. The Chi
nese have been prohibited from en
tering the country, and it docs not
follow that, because a regular stream
of Portuguese will bo introduced,
"the price of labor must then fall."
The Portuguese have been previously
contracted for, during the boom, at
high rates which will not now pay
the planter and they cannot be ob
tained at less cost. Tlic city agents
may be secured by their commis
sions and exchanges, but nothing is
left for the planter. We hope that
our contemporary will explain how
"the change for the belter in tho
cost of labor is near at hand."
Tho latest scientific reports, con
cernincr sorghum Btigur, are that it
has been proved n success by means
of clipniiciil applications. It can bo
cultivated with little expense or
trouble; probably in a very short
time, portable mills will extract the
juice at n minimum of expense to the
cultivator. France has felt the
effects of the cultivation of beet
sugar in Germany. Hayti, Snn Do
mingo, Manila, Cuba and Mauritius
have in their turn felt the effects of
treaties. They have prospered and
nourished, for a time, beyond ex
pectation, and have ultimately be
come bankrupt. What is to prevent
Hawaii going through a similar
experience? Tho hard times will
undoubtedly come, and the sooner
the better so that our business affairs
may be left on a firmifinancial basis,
and that all inflated symptoms of
prosperity may be abolished.
FLOODS AND FRESHETS.
The very heavy rain that com
menced shortly before midnight, and
has fallen almost continuously since,
has done considerable damage around
Honolulu. All the streams were
turned into rushing torrents and had
reached their greatest height between
four and five o'clock. The road at
the Chinese Theater was covered to
a depth of four feet and all the
recent repairs have been entirely
destroyed. Horses, fowls, trees and
portions of buildings were washed
down and several Chinese stoics
were completely inundated, portion
of the goods floating into the harbor.
The water covered the floor of the
Chinese laundry. Smith's bridge was
canted over and from it to St. Louis
College was a sheet of water; all
the houses in the locality were
Nuuanu Avenue seemed to have
suffered the most. All the gardens
on the Punchbowl side of the Avenue
being under water at five o'clock
and for some time later. At the
second bridge the water rushed down
with tremendous force ; the viaduct
across the valley was carried away
so that residents in the eastern por
tion of the city will have their water
supply cut off. At the corner of
the Pauoa Valley road and Nuuanu
Avenue, close to the bridge, is a
small store kept by a Portuguese
who was roused up, with his family,
at four o'clock by finding the water
up to their beds. They rushed out
without clothes which were kindly
supplied them by Mr. and Mrs. A.
There was an unusual appearance
on the road, in the early hours, of
the residents of both sexes, in va
rious stages of dress, all helping the
unfortunate Portuguese family,
whose loss is considerable, a car
riage, furniture, stock in trade and
the house -being severely damaged.
The water subsided about six o'clock
but rose again later. The cellars in
many houses were "filled with water
and the Nuuanu road showed that it
had been, in places, entirely under
