tained local option provisions, where
by the people of any district would'

its promoters upon representations

safer, in the interest ,of temperance,

foroing a' legalized, trafllc in strong

without regard to the desires of the

seems, by its constituted authorities,
to have an established liquor trafllc

woild, in healing with the utmost
bcvoiity both the seller and the user
of opium, while giving liberal, legal
encouragement to tho ubo of strong

investigated the relative physiologi
cal and social effects of alcohol and
opium before deciding to give one
full course and restrain' the other at
any cost. At last session the com
munity became f rantio , over a pro

dare to carry the measure. Yet an
attempt tofurther regulate the sale
of intoxicating drinks, in the direc

miserable failure. Can anybody(cx

Senator Plumb, of Kansas,
broached the subject of sorghum
sugar in Congress. There arc three
sorghum sugar factories in that
State situated respectively at Ot
tawa, Hutchinson and Stirling nnd
it costs six cents a pound to make
sugar ranked with A in the market.
Last year about 70,000 pounds of
this sugar was malic in Kansas, but
owingUo the undeveloped state of
the-industry and low prices prevail
ing, it only commanded about what
it cost. .Senator Plumb is confident,
however, 'thai sugar making in Kan
sas will become a big enterprise.
This piece of news adds to the evi
dence piling up on every hand, that
the world is bound to have cheaper
sugar in the futuit than it has had
in the past. Supply seems able to
more than keep up with a steadily
increasing demand. A considera
tion of this fact should be enough
to make the people of this country
realize the necessity of diversifying
tkejr. industries. It should also em
phasize the importance of having
the land Settled by independent pro
ducers, who could, more easily than
great corporations, adapt their agri
culture to the changing demands
of the world's markets.
The Mormons, itis said, do not
anticipate any change in their posi

to be any less ingloriously accom

Been that.the United States Senate
has decided emphatically against
foroig,n contract labor. The fact
that, in this matter, special legisla

fallacious is the doctrine that a pro
tective tariff is the chief defence
and .support of the American work
An Aincrinii paper say that the

gooses, which the blacks hao a
superstitious fear of killing. Tills
will be interesting to Hawaiian plant
ers, in view of the anticipated intro
duction of the rat-killing animals
into those Islands. Pcihnps when
they get ioo plentiful here, they
may bo inveigled into a pausago
machine nnd thus give the country
a new industry.
An anioiidmcut to the Post-ofllcc
Appropriation bill, passed by the
Semite, gives $800,000 for tho trans
portation of the foreign mails, in
cluding the transfer across the Isth
mus of Panama. As the Pacific
Mail Steamship Co. was mentioned
prominently in the discussion, it
would appear as if the Australasian
mails, under tho proposed arrange
ment, arc to go by the v, ay of Pa
nama. In thnt case Honolulu, as
well as San Francisco, would bo left
without direct communication with
the Colonics. If the object is sim
ply competition for the European
mails, for the benefit of the stcam
sliip' line, the subsidizing of he now
route by Congress would be all
right, but as an assistance to the
Pacific; Coast commerce we do not
see where the favor comes in.
People who may liaVc cherished
the notion that Mohammedanism is
on its "last legs," may be a.ton
ished to read the following item of
intelligence. However, to use the
converse of a familiar phrase, noth

dans. They are great fatalists, and
if Great Britain acts upon her pre

the Mahdi, and succeeds, the reli

Mohammedanism is making rapid
progress among African tribes, and
binding in a great confederation
scattered peoples who have hereto
fore had no common sympathies. It
is even declared that the operations
of Europeans in the Congo legion
result in the spread of Islam by the
employment of great numbers of
Iloussas. These are among the most
skilful of the Africans. Their cotton
cloths and leather goods are widely
sold, and it is said that the Interna
tional Association is employing them
largely to till the soil and show the
natives how men of their own color
can work and thrive ; but as they are
devoted Mohammedans they act as
missionaries of their faith. Arab
'traders are influential in many re
gions in leading the tribes to espouse
the religion oi their Prophet. The
powerful Mussulman Society known
as the Seuousians has turned many
tribes to Islam. This fraternity, the
most successful of all the Moham
medan propagandists, has its monas
teries and wields a great power from
Morocco to Mozambique. It is said
to have made ferocious bigots of
thousands of blacks who formerly
welcomed intercoiuso with white
Christians. The growth of Moham
medanism in Africa is hindering not
only the spread of Christianity but
also tin: advance of commerce.
