lcs of the day, or what may lcconio so-
We leservc the right to toI purely
Wo tlo not hold ourselves responsible
tor tho opinions expressed by our cor
"STRAIGHT IN THE FACE."
Editor Buu.ctin : As you have
donc me tlio bonoi' to give place in
your pnper to my two former un
sophisticated connnunicntions, J have
the impudence to trouble you ngniu.
I do not incline to the belief that
tho country is clean "gone up the
spout," or that there is immediate
danger of its going up the spout, or
that it ever will reach right to the top
of tho spout and be carried out of
sight by a typhoon. A treaty of
reciprocity with the United States,
combined with .our fertile lands
and high prices for our product!?,
made us prosperous, prosperity1 and
short-sightedness induced extrava
gance, extravagance robbed us of the
fruits of our prosperity. Now that
hard times that is, cheap sugar
confront us, we arc in a stow ; but
wc arc not clean gone yet. The
country did exist without the treaty
before, and some of the planters who
were economical even became' rich,
and the country may continue to
exist and thrive if the treaty be
withdrawn. It is certainly much
better for all concerned to retain the
treaty, but the country is not .totally
smashed without it. I see no reason
to think that these islands will run
their course and be ultimately reduced
to the financial and commercial level
of Jamaica and other islands of the
Atlantic. Not exactly because of
any superior internal resources pos
sessed by us, but on account of our
geographical position. Treaty or no
treaty, sugar or no sugar, higli prices
or low prices, the next six or eight
years will see the completion of the
Panama Canal, which event will
revolutionize ocean travel, and we
cannot altogether get out of its track
if we tried our best.
The real difference between present
and prospective tunes and the flush
times of the past, as far as the com
mercial and general public of Honolulu
are concerned, is not actually so great
as it looks. Inflation has played a
leading character and captivated the
crowd. Dazzled by visions of new
silver dollars, without a gold basis,
the unwary have rented shops at
monstrous prices and rushed head
long into business ventures, until
everything in the line of business has
become overdone. The.',' furnishers"
certainly are out or all pro
portion to the, consumers. There
are entirely too many dry-goods
establishments, too many grocery
shops, too many shops of every kind,
too many newspapers, too many
middle men, too much going into
debt, too much giving of credit, too
much of everything except hard cash
and economy. All this grows out of
inflation and exaggerated conceptions
of the country's capacity. Compea
tition is good, but too much of a
good thing is not good. We have
plenty of room for producers and
consumers to increase, but furnishers
must diminish, ere long. Sombody
must go under, or shut up, or retire,
or something. No man can for ever
maintain a business on a hundred
dollars a month rent basis when his
sales do not equal that amount. Wc
shall seethe "survival of the fittest."
This predicted, and to my mind
inevitable, result, does not mean
smash, or ruin, or extinction of the
country. It rather means a bringing
of people to their proper senses,
reducing of things, to their proper
level, lessening of rents and living,
irresistable insistance upon private
and public economy, and the placing
commercial and agricultural matters
on a sound and safe financial basis.
THE PHILOSOPHY OF SUMMER VACA
TIONS. Those exceptional beings
who have caught the true
secret of going away from
home to keep cool and have
a good time do not move in
battalions upon a given and
conspicuous point. T h e y
strike out in lightly-equipped
squads and bring up in un-
advertised and picturesque
retreats, where it isn't neces-
sary to bother about clothes
and where nature isn't stared
out of countenance by the
brazen and insistent devices
of civilization. There are yet
such places in plenty for
those who care to discover
and occupy them, and the
roads that lead to them are
not long nor difficult nor ex
pensive. The philosophy of
summer vation, rightly com
prehended, does not depend
upon the mere distance which
one is able to place between
himself and daily contract
with the heat and burden of
his particular vicinage. St.
