Emerson's Minstrels, at Music
There is not much to fear in the
long run from the competition of
countries that have to prop up the
sugar industry with bounties from
their treasuries. They must some
time be compelled to admit the folly
of trying to make wealth by taking
money from one pocket and putting
it into another. An industry that
stands on its own bottom will, when
depression comes, only lie down, as
it were, until the clouds have rolled
away. Being natural to the country
in which it is established, it must
needs icvivc when prices rise, for
untried industries cannot draw away
the capital invested in one that
under ordinarily favorable circum
stances yields good returns. On tho
other hand, where the industry is
only tentative and requires, while
the market is fair, to be fed with
public bounty, a season of unprofit
able prices i3 likely to destroy all
confidence in it. Sensible people
will avail themselves of the oppor
tunity to convince their fellow
countrymeu of the unwisdom of
neglecting natural industries for
those that require artificial support.
This is even now seen to be the case,
in a formidable opposition developed
against the bounty-fed beet-sugar
experiment in certain countries. A
consideration of the natural laws of
industry and trade, and of the sure
penalty of their infraction, should
prevent our sugar-raiseis from put
ting on sackcloth and ashes in the
present trying period. This is a
sugar-growing country by tho bounty
' of nature, while some countries,
making a bIiow of competition with it
in tho world's markets, are only ca
pable of producing the article under
high pressure. While the depres
sion will, therefore, in their cases
discourage further effort, it is only
causing the planters of this country
to economize in methods and adopt
improved appliances. Even now
some of our sugar-growers are com
pelling a profit from their fields, and,
with tho various reforms effected
under the pressure of circumstances,
all of them will bo enabled to make
larger profits than ever if prices re
turn to anything like their old figure.
With tho fall in prices, tho consump
tion of sugar is increasing enor
mously, even though hard times is
the cry all over the woild. There
foic, when values in other great
staples take an upward start, there
isfnol much reason to fenr Unit pec
plo who have becomo accustomed to
two sugars in their cups when wnges
arc low will gu back la one when
reviving limes mako them better off.
THE LICENSE QUESTION.
Strong drink will make men stag
ger just tho same when its salu is
licensed as when it is unlicensed. If
the illegal talc cannot be prevented
when no licenses arc granted, neither
can it be prevented when licenses
arc issued. Where the licensed
dealer has a motive for keeping nn
ordeily place, in the fear of forfeit
ing his license, the unlicensed one
has one of at least equal strength in
the fear of attracting the attention
of the authorities. Tho admission
of the advocates of licenses that they
should not be granted independently
of the wishes of residents of any dis
trict condemns their issuance in all
the places named in the reports of
the Privy Council decision. In other
matters the individual is protected
iu law against interference with his
domestic quiet and comfort even by
establishments iu themselves inno
cent and useful which may be started
near his domicile. We have read of
a case in another country wheic an
injunction issued to restrain a manu
facturer from operating a steam
forge in proximity to a lady's resi
dence because the noise of the ham
mers was intolerable to her. Why,
then, should such unnecessary and
harmful establishments as liquor
shops be forced upon a community
of which even only a minority may
be opposed to them? From all that
appears, the respectable residents of
the places to be given liquor shops
by the paternal Privy Council, arc
unanimous against the innovation.
Therefore, if the Minister of the
Interior has full discretion in tho
matter we are confident that he will
not foist the undesircd trafllc upon
the residents of the districts in
question. If the people only make
a manful stand for their rights, they
may even yet stop the threatened
infliction of a legalized liquor traffic
upon them. Let the law be enforced
against the lawless traffickers as it is
against the opium dealers, and after
a while, in the comparison between
the condition of the people in the
country, where liquor is prohibited,
and that of the people in town,
where it is licensed, will enable tho
whole question to be decided upon
with intelligence by the nation.
It is refreshing, in the midst of a
chaos of public opinion, to have a
clear-cut proposal in politics. "A
Future Voter" is brief and to the
point in submitting nominations for
a now Cabinet. It would, of course,
bo out of place to make comment
upon the names preferred. We only
hail with satisfaction a definite pro
position in Hawaiian politics. The
country is not dead when even two
or three persons can unite in opinion
upon a public question.
A contemporary advocates that
this country raise its own fodder and
live stock for exportation as well as
for domestic requirements. From
the emphatic manner in which theso
desirable objects were recommended
at the Planters' Convention, good
promise was given thai a fresh start
would be made thenceforth. Prob
ably the disease that is ravaging
horses on this island will militate for
the time against enterprise in stock
raising. SOUND WORDS ON ROADS.
Ediiok Bulletin: Moat peoplo
will endorse your opinion, that
"one of the first objects of Govern
ment in this country should he good
roads and enough of them," and
that "thero can he scarcely any
thing more important to this King
dom than its roads." No matter
how rich the latent resources of a
country, they cannot bo developed
without roads. The very best of
land may exist in practically limit
less areas and be procurable in low
prices, but who is going to occupy
anil cultivate it, if it be inaccessible?
The governments of some new coun
tries consider it the soundest policy
to construct roads to and through
uninhabited regions for the purpose
of inducing settlement, and many
instances could bo cited to show that
results justify the wisdom of s.uch a
course. I am of opinion that the
local press and many people here
attach, undue importance to adver-
Using this country abroad. Foreign
missions and representation of is
land products nt foreign exhibitions
aro good and useful in their way,
and so arc other methods that
might be mentioned of bringing our
selves before the notice of other
countries. Hut what have all these
things to do with the permanent
prosperity of these islands ? To be
icgarded by the great nations of the
earth as a small member of the
same family will not add one bit to
the happiness and comfort of the
Hawaiian people. Neither will an
occasional Visit of a few tourists,
who will temporarily benefit a few
shop-keepers, add to the real pros
perity of the nation. Never mind
about the outside world, or whether
the people of other countries know
us, or care for us, or wish to come
and see 113. The proper thing to do
is to attend to our home affairs, the
development of our own resources.
Roads, bridges, and safe and con
venient landings arc what we need.
Our productive lands should be
made available and accessible. A
reduction in the army of half-cm-ployed
officials, a lopping off of a
lot of expensive and nonsensical
tomfoolery, and a careful expendi
ture of the bulk of tho country's
revenue for the purposes just indi
cated are what would make Hawaii
a prosperous and happy little state.
Let us have cheap lands, with the
means of ingress to and egress from
them, and everything else will fol
low of itself.
NEW POLITICS AND NEW MEN.
Editok Bulletin: A couple of
young men in business who have
read the late articles on political
duties, and who intend to go
into politics when the time comes,
were discussing matters of public
interest the other evening. The
population question having been
taken up, it was agreed that after
the exposition of the wants of the
country made by Mr. Marques in
the last Saturday Press, new men
ought to be called upon to conduct
the new start in politics. "Further,
it was agreed unanimously that Mr.
B. F. Dillingham, for'his scheme of
privato immigration ; Mr. Marques,
for his study of the population
generally; Mr. S. B. Dole, for his
Homestead Law, and Mrl Horner,
for his study on the money question,
ought to constitute our next cabinet.
It was therefore decided to ask the
Bulletin to propose the following
B. F. Dillingham, Minister of
A. Marques, Minister of Foreign
J. M. Horner, Minister of Finance.
S. B. Dole, Attorney General.
If those gentlemen could be pre
vailed upon to serve the country in
the above capacities, they would
constitute the most homogeneous
cabinet hitherto given to Hawaii, as
their views on the most important
national questions appear to be so
