The policy of forcing the growth
of a nation's industry by taxation
laws, commonly called protection,
never had its absurdity better illus
trated than in the beet sugar busi
ness of European countries. Take
Germany, for example, where the
industry is cairicd on chiefly by the
farmers upon co-operative princi
ples. Each farmer in a joint stock
concern binds himself to grow at
least three and a half acres of beets
for each share of stock ho holds,
and is subject to a line if he fails to
do so. The result is that most of
them grow more than the minimum
acreage, so that a production over
calculations is assured from the
start. Then (wc quote from an
American paper), "the mills buy
up the beets at 22 marks (the equiv
alent of 22 shillings) a ton; they
pay a tax to the German Govern
ment of Hi marks a ton, and the
cost of manufacture amounts to
about 10 marks a ton, making tho
total cost of production -18 marks
per ton. A ton of beets produces
two hundredweight of sugar, so that
the cost of the suirar is 21 marks
(about SO) a hundredweight. The
annual product of Germany is about
' 900,000 tons of sugar. The Gov
ernment subsidy is given in the
form of a rebate of the lax on all
sugar that is exported. As this is
really a premium on tlie exportation
of sugar, the article is actually
much higher priced in Germany than
it is in England, and about three
fourths of the product is exported."
Sugar was so cheap in England,
recently, that it was more economi
cal to feed it to cattle and hogs than
oilcake. The German producer
. must find his profits to be between
two Arcs, which must soon melt
them entirely away. If he sends J
his sugar abroad, he has to almost,
if not altogether, give it away ; if he
sells it at home, tho major results
go to pay the tax to his paternal
Government. This is n state of
affairs that cannot possibly last
long, and it is to be anticipated that
the first tangible improvement in the
world' 8 sugar market will be occa
sioned by the collapse of the Euto
pcan beet-sugar enterprise. The
business is even less promising in
France than in Germany, on account
it of the tax in the former country
fe' being levied upon the sugar instead
of tho beet.
- The Altci California scores rather
a neat point at the expenso of the
p, Congregational Club, of San Fran
cisco. It charges them with scep
' ticism in divine providence, on ac-
"'l count of numerous speeches delivered
fat their last meeting, to tho effect
Lthat the moral effect of Cleveland's
(K 'W . ... .
'election would be very uau. it
'siiys, "They have so often preach
ed that Providence overrules every
thing for the best, and that not a
sparrow falls without direct inter
position' of Divine will, that it is
fairly astonishing to find they now
think tbo Lord had no share in so
important atraiisaction as the clec-
lion of n President of tlio grandest
Republic the world over saw." One
of the features of the recent contest
has been the warmth of clerical
nutton on both sides. Mr. Uccclicr's
course would have led one to suppose
that Mr. Cleveland was a paragon of
all the viitui'9, while that of the
Baptist clergy of Buffalo would have
conveyed the impression that ho was
the incarnation of everything salauic.
Tho battle having been fought and
won in a fair field with no favor, by
Mr. Cleveland, however, the laity
should have a right lo expect a good
example from their spiritual over
seers in the way of meekly bowing
their heads to the lcsistless logics of
events. If Mr. Cleveland were as
bad as he is made out to bo by bis
most bitter accusers, the issue of the
contest simply indicates that a majo
rity of the nation cither want such
a man or rcgaul his opponent as a
worse man for the chief rulcrsliip.
The Advertiser may only mean
well to the temperanco reformation
now being attempted here; but, as a
device of opponents of anti-liquor
aims, and an apology for shirkers of
responsibility in the matter, there is
nothing more familiar to all iflio
know anything of the temperance
movement here and elsewhere, than
the policy of disparaging the efforts
and methods of the constant, tiuo
and tried temperance people of the
community. Our contemporary con
tradicts itself in advocating the giv
ing over of the woik to former
drinkers, and at the same time pre
dicting ccitain failure if "Salvation
Army" methods arc adopted. The
very thing it advocates is what has
made the Salvation Army a religious
burlesque wherever it has been such.
The Gazette local editor is grace
fully magnanimous in complimenting
the manager of this paper for hav
ing "displayed enterprise by pub
lishing an edition of the paper, con
taining the news relative to the Pre
sidential election in the United
States, within an hour and a half
after the arrival of the steamer Ala
meda, on the 22nd hist." He adds,
"When it is considered that the
editorial originally written for the
occasion had to bo 'pied,' the time
is moie remarkable."

THE DUCK CONTROVERSY.
EniTon Ui'M.rriN : J had hoped
that the duck controversy was at an
end, but as some person has made
a direct attack upon ine without
provocation, 1 feel myself called
upon to make the following reply,
wishing it distinctly understood that
hereafter I will pay no attention to
anonymous or unreliable correspond
ence. Waianac Sportsman, I no
tice your foolish communication in
the Daily Humxtix of Nov. 25th
inst., and would advise you kindly,
to procure a dictionary and gram
mar and study the. English lan
guage. Anyone familiar with shot
guns must certainly know that at
twenty-five or thirty yards a good
"chokc-boro" will not scatter shot
over a radius of 11101 e than three
feet, and plover do not gather to
gether sulllcicntly close to allow any
one to kill from thirty to fifty with
the contents of two barrels. No
doubt your gun is belled at tho muz
zle, or you kill your birds with
giant powder. Plover do not con
gregate in large flocks until they
arc about lo migrate, generally in
April and May. So far as mallard
arc concerned I can safely venturo
that you arc not acquainted with tho
bird and must have confounded it
with the goose, as no one doubts that
occasionally a specimen of the genus
anscr may bo seen in Ilanakuli. I'
have no more ammunition to
waste on such poor game, and I
would further advise you to give the
suffering public a long rest.

THE DISLOCATED STATE.
Ewion Dumxtik: You wcro
pleased to give publicity to my
Jumbled conceptions of the funda
mental requisites of Cabinet Minis
ters. 1 acknowledge my obligation.
If you do not already regard mo as
a bore, I am apprehensive that you
will ere long. Years ago, in ti dis
tant clime, tho wandering ' Arab
joined the regiment of a literary
chief, and was so highly commended
for his initial deeds of valor, that ho
had hopes of filling up the residue
of his days in the service, lint
mundane expectations were doomed
to fade, and the Son of Ishmael was
at last repulsed and banished from
the halls of intelligence, his plunder
ing propensities having given offence
to the wise men of cities. The
sedate editor and his respectable
renders could not long tolerate the
narrow-minded bigotry which ad
mitted the blackness of a pot and
objected to call a saucepan a
bootjack. History may repeat itself.
I sec, though, I can't have all my
own way. You possess considerable
spring in tho elbow, and have hit
back some hard blows. Thunder
away ; I can stand it. My hide i3
tough, and head thick. To convert
tlie heathen fiom the error of their
ways will take time, patience, and
much preaching. My mission at the
outset will have to strucjile ujiainst
big odds; for it is unlikely that the
unsophisticated notions of the tent
will consort with the polished ideas
of the mansion, or that a wild Arab
of the desert, who has a fellow-
feeling for everything connected with
impudence and plunder, should bo
of the same mind as a fashionable
sugar-bag aiistooraey. But then
Antishamus looks more to the future
than the present for the triumph of
his ideas' and confidently expects
that when the people have cleared
their understandings of dust and
cobwebs and outgrown their narrow
political prejudices, they will be
constrained to admit the wisdom of
Our great misfortune in a political
aspect is that wc have too many
small factions and snug little family
arrangements, cither of which con
siders itself entitled to the monopoly
of government, and neither of which
lias any clear understanding of what
government on a broad basis of
"the greatest good to the greatest
number" means. They talk glibly
of "good government" x and pull
faces as long as flag-poles as they
utter with peculiar emphasis, "bad
government." Hut 1 can never get
from them a clear idea of what they
mean or a definite explanation of
what they .want. Rcally.it is hard
to avoid the belief that many of
those who talk loudest and fiercest
are more concerned about the men
to rule than the measures to adopt.
Moreover, these various little coteries
seem to have become the Hawaiian
nation, and speak of themselves as
"the" people," to the exclusion of
the aboriginal sons of (he soil.
' With this disjointed, inharmo
nious condition of the body pdlitic
everybody having an axe to grind,
and each elbowing to get first at the
stone and do most gi hiding while
there a judicious selection of the
best men is highly improbable, and
the establishment of a stable, clllcicnt,
uncorrupt government utterly im
possible. Tho effect is, that when
the popular pot begins to boil on the
political fire, the scum of sharpers
and tuft-hunters which rises to the
surface, instead of being scattered
in the gutter, is cast into the Min
istry. All that is wholesome and
profitable sinks out of sight; the
people get the frotli and rubbish,
and then complain that the flavor is
To come to the point, 1 would ask
any disinterested and unbiased per
son, if our method of pitch-forking
Smith, Brown, Jones, and Robinson
into olllce, regardless of education,
experience, character, or brains, and
simply because they belong to a
family, a class, or a section of the
public, is likely ever to produce a
liberal, upright, capable government,
who will govern the country ou broad
and enlightened principles adapted
to its peculiar conditions and needs?
Just look at our public men. To-day
they arc in a taro-patcli or behind n
counter ; to-morrow they are in the
Cabinet; and Solomon in all his
gloiy was never half such a muff as
the lot put together. Occasionally,
by accident, wo get a mnn or two
less of a wooden-head than the aver
age. But this is in spite of the
rule, and not according to it. Now,
tell mo, Mr. Editor, candidly, do
our high ofllcials in general glvo you
the outward idea of men suitablo
for tho positions Ihcj' occupy, or the
Inward conviction that nature ever
Intended them to abandon the field
or rise above the shop? Arc these
men less out of their legitimate I
sphere where they arc than Lord 1
Granville would bo selling oranges
at a street-corner, or Gladstone J
delivering his solemn platitudes in
an auctioneer's rostrum? Hero wo ;
have a magnificent little country,
with a climate of unsurpassed mild
ness, and possessing a soil of won
derful productive capabilities. The'
conditions of prosperity and happi
ness arc placed right in our hands
by bounteous nature. If a wise and
patriotic paternal government had
watched over and guided the nation,
from the first introduction of civilized
institutions to the present, what
would have been the condition of
the country and people to-day? 1
defer the answer. In place of what
should have been and might have
been, the only gi owing and nourish
ing item in the national catalogue is
our liabilities. When men arc thrust
into places of trust and honor, wlio
have risen from nothing, without
merit, inctgrity, or character, they
exhibit their natural hatred and ob
jection to everything gieat, good,
and valuable by reducing all that
comes within their influence to the
snmo sordid level.
