BRITAIN AND THE BEET BOUNTIES.
In nothing does Clrcat lirittiln
show her greatness more limn in her
maintenance of her position as mis
tress of the bens and of commerce.
Nothing within or without shakes
her confidence in free trade. Her
policy of unrestricted commerce with
nil the world, so far as her part is
concerned, is based upon the scienti
fic principles of political economy,
and v,-as adopted after n prodigious
struggle with home interests that
had long exacted heavy tribute from
the people under a different policy.
During the recent world-wide com
mercial depression, an attempt to
revive the protection theory in Great
Britain, under the taking name of
' fair trade," seemed for a lime to
have been developing threatening
magnitude, but Mr. Gladstone and
his Liberal associates, with the more
judicious of the Conservatives, held
the movement at bay until the revi
val of trade made it hopclcs. The
attitude of 13rilish statesmen toward
the unscientific system of sugar
bounties, adopted by other countries
to force the giowth of industries
that cannot be established or main
tained upon a natural basis, is con
sistent with the fixed policy of the
nation. A recent article in a leading
journal of Canada, a llritili depend
ency which gac way a few years
ago to the clamor of manufacturers
for protection, administers a scolding
to the liritish Hoard of Trade (a
department of the Government), for
having declined 'to consider a pro
posal to impose countervailing duties
to oilsct the bounties under which
beet sugar manufacture lives in other
countries. One of the grounds taken
why the mother country should so
deviate from her true and tried
policy, was that the liritish West
Indies were entitled to such a pio
tcction of their sugar market on
account of their being large con
sumers of liritish manufactures.
The bounty-fed competition was
driving the West Indian consumers
of Uritish goods either out of the
country or into industries that would
yield nothing like the profits sugar
raising had. To have their interests
ignored in the manner shown would
make the West Indians feel that
they would be better off as citizens
of a nation whoc remotest part was
ns well cared for as Its innermost
county. What would Great Hritain
do if the bounty system was applied
against her own chief manufactures V
She would probably " awake to the
criminal folly," and so on.
Such talk is truly surprising if it
emanates from persons with any re
putation for good sense. It is ridi
culous to suppose that the policy
established for half a century, under
which all the material interests of
the nation have grown enormously,
should be departed from lo relieve a
single colonial industry from the
is- effects of the foolish expedient of
certain foreign countries lo support
the beet-Hiigar business at the ex
pense of their own people. It would
bo .most uiistatesmnnliko on tho part
of British statesmen to do so jf the
bounty system were deemed to have
prospect of only n short life, for
then they could better afford to wait
for the issue than to institute a re
trograde precedent. It would bo
equally unworthy of scientific gov
ernment if the bounties were lo be
perpetuated by their authors, for
then the imposition of duties would
havo to bo maintained, thereby fol
lowing the example of the other
countries in making the whole peo
ple pay tribute to sustain a particu
lar industry. Still more ridiculous,
to the extent of puerility, is the
warning of what might happen jf the
bounty system were brought into
play against leading liritish manu
factures. If other countries choose
to make the attempt of lifting them
selves into industrial eminence by
their boot straps, by compelling their
people lo support particular indus
tries, Great Uritain can probably
stand the aitiflcinl competition longer
than they can, and survive with re
sources intact when they have
crippled themselves hopelessly.
Instead of the policy of expediency
recommended them by short-sighted
economists, the liritish statesmen
have taken a course that is likely to
produco gool results, not only to
thcirown sugar-raising dependencies,
but to every cane-growing country in
the world. They arc endeavoring
to induce the abandonment of the
bounty system by those countries
which have adopted it, and their
delegates to Germany for this pur
pose, according to icccnt accounts,
arc meeting with gratifying promise
of success. They have secured the
co-operation of the woikingmcn's
section of the Liberal party, and
been assured that a strong effort
will be made in the German Parlia
ment to nvci throw the system, which
is proving a serious source of op
pression to the working classes.
Further progress of the plan adopted
by Great Britain, which in going
straight to the bottom of the evil is
more worthy of a great nation than
weakly bending under its pressure,
will be watched for with interest in
succeeding mail. This Kingdom
may have great cause of gratitude
toward the British nation, in relation
to this matter, before very long.
In Victoria, Australia, dogs com
ing into any port by sea must serve
six mouths in quarantine. It is
recorded that recently the Governor
of the Colony, Sir II. H. Loch,
brought with him to Melbourne a
very fine canine companion. No
relaxation of the rule being obtain
able even for the Governor, the
difficulty was got over by proclaim
ing the Governor's back yard as a
quarantine station. That was all
right so far, but the next thing was,
a number of dog fanciers wanted
their back yards constituted quaran
tine stations. What Honolulu needs
is some sort of public doggery
where all ill-kept dogs could be
washed, given a square feed, and
nuuzlcd, at their owners' expense,
their hides to be tanned to defray
costs in case of default of payment.
"A new process of preserving meat
consists in injecting a .solution of
boiacic acid into the blood of an
animal immediately after it has been
stunned, and before the heart has
ceased to beat, the whole operation,
including the removal of all the
blood and chemical lluid from tho
body of the animal, only taking a
few minutes. A demonstration of
the effects of this process has been
given at the Adelphi Hotel, London.
The joints cut from a sheep, which
had been hanging for more than
seven weeks at the House of the
Society of Arts, were cooked in
various ways, and those present
agreed that the meat was equal to
ordinary butchers' meat." The
foregoing, which we clip from a
foreign paper, may convey a useful
hint lo meat raisers and sellers on
these Islands. If some such process
were successfully introduced hero,
abattoirs might bo erected on Hawaii
and on the slock ranches on this
Island, and better, fatter and moro
tender meat sent to market than is
now the case.
At tho recent musical congress

One day during a noted Kentucky
campaign, and while the Confederate
army was passing through Allen
county, Gen. IJrcckcnridge, ap
proaching Gen. Hindman, said:
"We arc only a short distance
now from Bear Waller, and are not
very far from Jiintdwn."
Tho solemnity of his manner at
tracted Ilindman's serious attention,
and regarding IJrcckcnridge with a
long look of inquiry, he asked :
"But, General, why does our
nearness lo those places so concern
"Well, you sec," Brcckcnridgc re
plied, "I fear it will be my fate to
be killed in an action in Jimtown or
Bear Waller. Bear Waller?" ho
repeated. "The thought of being
killed at, a place bearing such a name
makes me sick."
