A short article on .sugar, cut out
of the Boston Traiwript. has been
handed us. It shows that the glut
in the sugar market is likely to last
a while longer. A prospect of a
commercial treaty with San Domingo
looms up as a fresh agent of depre
ciation of the commodity in America.
The article referred to points out the
remarkable elfcct of the Hawaiian
Treat' in helping, at least, to in
crease the consumption of sugar in
the United States over twenty-five
per cent, in less than a year. It
seems very much as if the actual
value of sugar will remain perman
ently down a peg from the causes
producing the present depression.
This, while an item in the. cup of
human happiness which should be
occasion of rejoicing, will leave sugar
planters somewhat poorer unless
they adopt means to cheapen the
production accordingly. In a sugar
country like this, that means leaving
almost everybody a little poorer, so
that it is to the general interest of
our fellow-citizens to have the pro
duction of sugar cheapened. Im
proved methods and the cheapest
possible labor arc the great requisites
to that end, and both arc at present
problematical. AYciiope that the
experiments in the diffusion process
may largely solve the problem in the
one case, and that a large accession
of Japanese may be clllcacious in
the other. While, however, atten
tion is being concentrated upon these
two important objects, the nation
should not fail to' keep an eye about
it to discover any chances for the
enlargement of the market for its
staple and other products. There is
a great country to the north of the
United States, which is making rapid
strides in commercial growth and
importance. A part of the British
Umpire, with which this Kingdom is
upon the most kindly relations,
Canada has the power of making
commercial treaties herself. She is
at this moment casting about for
every opportunity of extending her
trade relations with other countries'.
Late accounts show that a scheme
for uniting the British West Indies
with the Canadian Confederation, as
tho best possible solution of the
clifllciilty of those Islands in marketing-
their ' sJugar, is regarded with
MhaBafflffliBiW ' .. 'wi tilLjtefttflPl.M. -. ' '. '.tmkil' V.ri4kiriifH
great favor, by all concerned. Tho
desirability of effecting a commer
cial treaty with tho Hawaiian Islands
has been favorably mooted more than
once in Canada, and some of the
leading business men of Montreal,
the commercial metropolis of Canada,
are just now taking a deep interest
In Hawaiian trade, matters. A treaty
with the Dominion of Canada would
place these Islands on an equal foot
ing with tho British West Indies in
that market, even if the latter were
annexed as proposed. The time for
entering upon active negotiations for
such a consummation could not be
more opportune than now, with the
prospect of the Canadian Pacific
Railway being completed from the
Atlantic to the Pacific in a year and
a half. A sugar refinery at the
Pacific terminus in British Columbia
would lake a large portion of the
Hawaiian sugar' product. Return
cargoes could be had front the e.
haustlcss coal mines of British Col
umbia and tho products of the illimit
able grain region of the Canadian
North West. Perhaps tho United
States would object to a Canadian
Hawaiian treaty, but wo doubt very
much if the objection would come to
the point of withdrawing from her
own treaty with us. For, on the
one hand, the section that prolit so
greatly by the Hawaiian trade would
not be so iah as to commit itself to
a throat to cut that trade off entirely
rather than share it with Canada,
particularly when it has a hard fight
to maintain the existence of the
treaty as matters stand. On the.
other hand, the American sugar
party, that is at war with the treaty,
would be apt to hail with some
satisfaction trade arangements be
tween this country and Canada which
would, certainly for a time, relievo
the congestion in the American
sugar market. Again, it is due to
ourselves that we make timely pro
vision for the not impossible even
tuality of the abrogation of the
American treaty. Tho best ptccati
tion against that in a double sense
would seem to be the opening of
negotiations with Canada, as, in the
first place, we should have one door
open to us when the other was shut,
and, in the second place, the United
States wotdd have a fresh incentive
to maintain its trade relations with
us. When tho Canadian Pacific
Railway is opened it will be the
shortest and dircctcst route from the
Pacific to Kit rope, and the probabi
lities are that steam communications
would he at mice established between
the British Columbia terminus and
the Asiatic and Australasian ports.
From such communications the Ha
waiian Kingdom should put itself
into a position to benefit.
THE INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITION.
Some particulars of the Universal
Exposition to be held at New Orleans,
in which this Kingdom is invited to
participate, will be of interest to out
readers. It is to open on Dec. 1st,
1881, and close May ."1st, 188.r, and
be conducted under the auspices of
the United States Government. To
defray expenses 81,300,000 has been
appropriated by the national Govern
ment. Sf00,0()0 contributed by the
citizens of New Orleans, S200,000
appropriated by Mexico. SI 00.000
by tho State of- Louisiana, $100,
000 by the city of New Orleans,
and from 8f,000 to 2.1,000 by other
Stales, cities and foreign countries.
Every Slate and Territory in the
Union will be represented, and near
ly all the leading nations and coun
tries in the world. It is advertised
as " the biggest exhibit, the big
gest building and the biggest
industrial event in the world's his
tory" -a pretty big boast, but one
characteristic of our big neighbor.
It is a boast, however, hacked by
the statement that " applications for
exhibits already received cover more
space and a greater variety of sub
jects than those of any exposition
ever held." It is announced that
"the cheapest rates of travel ever
kuown in the annals of transporta
tion " have been secured for the
people everywhere. If these Islands
arc to be represented it is high time
our people were given notice to pre
pare exhibits. We believe a collec
tion of Hawaiian products could be
secured nt short notice which would
astonish the visitors to this biggest
of big exhibitions.

Mr. Brash again fnvois us with a
puzzle for our young friends, for
which so thank him. Ho should not
forgot to give us. in confidence, the
answer to future contributions of the
sort, as otherwise we are put to the
trouble of solving thorn to sec that
they arc all light. The first two
have yielded their answers almost at
sight, but it is possible that others
arc forthcoming which will prove an
excessive tax upon editorial time.
Both puzzles arc clever, and the
rhyme has a pleasant jingle.
"Ionia." whose silly column in the
'(. this morning is devoted lo
slandering the clerks of Honolulu,
incidentally mentions that he stum
bled over imc of the Bru.KTix's
English sentences. Nothing would
be more likely to trip him up than
an English sentence, and that is
probably the only true statement he
makes in this atrocious attempt to
bring a whole respectable class into
disrepute. There are rakes and
fops in every walk in life, but the
assertion that most of the clerks in
Honolulu are such only disgraces
the person who makes it.

after working for four evenings over
my last effort, concluded she had
found the correct solution of it, and
in less lime than it takes a nervous
woman to chop up an old fence post
into stove wood, she had divulged it
to a score of her acquaintances. This

work on the puzzle through her, will
