Yesterday a young man of Euio
pean birth told the writer he was
going into ccilniu productive indus
tries in the surburbs of Honolulu,
pursuant to the advice bo generously
bestowed by the press. lie had in
tsnded to leave the country owing
to business reverses, but upon further
consideration decided to btay and
test the rewards of independent
labor in this laud. It is to be hoped
he and all who come to a like deci
sion will not be without all the en
couragement and support the com
munity can afford. The success
that wc wish all such will amount to
no less than furnishing examples of
what can be achieved in that direc
tion, which will ensure a very large
demand for homestead lots, by a
desirable class of settlers men who
will build up the nation whenever
the Government is ready to mete
out available public lands for the
purposes of the Homestead Act.
Now that practical results arc begin
ning to follow the agitation of diver
sified industries, it is all important
that 3'Oting men desirous of carving
out a livelihood and a competence
upon that line should have the bene
fit, in their laudable efforts, of all
the experience acd knowledge ob
tainable in whatever departments of
industry they may enter. To this
end the press will doubtless continue
to give a large measure of space for
the publication of reliable informa
tion touching industries deemed
adaptable to this soil and climate.
The work of the local newspapers in
this regard, however, must of neces
sity come far short of the require
ments of this eiilical juncture of
domestic industry. Journalism here
is not likely, for some time to come,
to be strong enough to sustain special
departments sufficiently comprehen
sive and well-informed to afford all
the theory required for the guidance
of, especially, tyros in the cultiva
tion of the soil and kindred pursuits.
Neither will the very best special
journals from abroad bo adequate
for enabling our people to deal in
the best possible manner with the
different conditions of things here
from the localities where those are
published. To a large extent, pio
blems not already worked out iu this
air and soil will have to be solved by
patient, practical experience. As
has icpcatcdly been urged in these
columns, co-operation among those
interested in the development of
native resources is one of the prime
needs of the hour. There should be
organization for purposes of inter
change of ideas, information and
experiences, and Ihe securing of
evwyothcr benefit of mutual help
fulness: An unanswerable argument
for what is herein advocated is the
citation of the case of the Planters'
Company. The deliberations of that
body iu annual .session, and the in
tercourse of its incmberH, through
the columns of its regular periodical,
have undoubtedly contributed, in a
very high degree, to the very res
pectable position this little kingdom
has attained among the sugar-producing
countries of the world.
Helow is u specimen of rubbish
sold for news on the Coast, It is
from the San Francisco Ohronicle:-
"Atthe great banquet in Mon
treal on the 25th tilt., the Queen's
health was drunk in solemn silence,
and the leading lawyers of the Pro
vince have volunteered to defend
Rlcl, simply becauso he look up
arms ngaiust tho crown."
At tho festive occasion iu question,
the Queen's health was honored lu
tho usual fashion, when no personal
representative of Her Majesty is
present, by the band playing the
national nulhcm. The banquet it
self was not an especially great one,
us the Mnntrenlers are great on
banquets. Again, it is extremely
doubtful if Riel's 1'Vcnch sympathi
zers would care to admit that his
movement was meant to be against
the crown. His own statements leave
no room to doubt that his main ob
ject, originally, was to obtain a largo
price from tho Dominion Govern
ment for leaving the country. The
distuibanec, however, grew fast and
large upon his hands, owing to real
grievances his dupes had against the
Government. Then he found him
self in a comer and bad to carry the
hopeless business through to its end
so bitter to him. Moreover, it is
probably a gratuitous assertion that
the lawyers for the defenso have
volunteered their services. Certain
ly, with the exception of Mr. Mer
cier, the Provincial Liberal leader in
Quebec, reported engaged as ad
visory counsel, none of those retain
ed occupy the leading places at the
bar. They have yet to set tho St.
Lawrence on fire, however promis
ing their abilities may be of future
distinction. The statements in the
above extract are of a piece with the
story that a French-Canadian regi
ment had lefuscd to serve against
the rebels. The fact is, the body
referred to the Sixty-fifth of Mont
real was one of the most enthusi
astic in taking the field, where it has
done some of the severest and brav
est work of the campaign.
A CORNER IN BIBLES.
The fact may not be generally
known to our readers that the pub
lication of the Scriptures in England
is a monopoly, only the presses of
the two great Universities being al
lowed to print copies of the Bible.
From the following remarks, which
appeared recently in the London
Times, it is evident that a monopoly
in Bible making docs not work much
better than monopolies of other
"It is announced thai the Old
Testament is not to be published
separately, except in a somewhat
costly form, and that iu the eltcaper
editions it will be bound up and sold
as one volume with the New. They
who have the New already by itself
must buy it over again with the Old.
Though buyers of the Revised New
Testament have no legal redress,
they are undoubtedly threatened
with a breach of moral faith. They
were entitled, when offered half the
Revised Version separately, to con
clude that they would be given an
opportunity of obtaining the other
half similarly by itself."
For great corporations like the
English Universities, this certainly
seems like very small business.

SPIRIT DRINKING IN THE UNITED
Statistics indicate that 'the con
sumption of spirits in the above
named country has by no means
kept pace with the increase of popu
lation for the last twenty-five years.
Wc read that 81,000,000 people in
the year 1800 consumed 80,301,57-1
gallons, while in the year 1881, only
72,990,837 gallons were consumed
by 55,000,000 people. If the con
sumption in 188-1 had been in the
same ratio to the population as in
18C0 it would have amounted to
about 100,000,000 gallons. While
there has been this great falling off
in the consumption of distilled
liquors, there has undoubtedly been
a considerable increase in the con
sumption of wines and beer, which
is on the whole a gain for the cause
A long letter almost too long to
look at from Mr. Z. Y. Squires, on
tho Chinese question, has been in
hand for a day or two. It wilL be
attended to as soon as possible.
A correspondent gives what wo
have headed "Good Advice," re
garding protection from tho mos
quitoes. His plan is certainly more
rational than attempting to intimi
date the wretches by "cussing"
A serious complaint is made to
us, upon indubitable authority, of
Chinese laundrymcn taking clothes
to wnsh from lepers. The cases of
the disease, from which this occurs,
Bhould be formally brought to the at
tention of tho Board of Health. It
is an outrage upon people who fear
contagion to have tho like of the above
practised upon them by the wash
men. Even those who cherish the
non-cuiilagious belief must have a
horror of contamination from such a
means as that slated.
