while in smooth water may hold I
together, but it will not take much
nf a political storm to make the
craft go to pieces. If a now cargo
of free labor and well arranged
homesteads can be got aboard, thcio
is no doubt the landowners and the
planters themselves will feel ic
licvcd when they 'cc the old cargo
pitched overboard. Then forward
the homestead business, by all
means. Once the many thousands
of acres of unoccupied lands arc
divided up into small holdings, and
occupied by independent families,
the i csulling competition between
free laboi and semi-slave labor must
ineilably tell to the advantage of
the f ice, for it has iinariably done
so in the history of the race, and
oncu this fact receives an additional
practical demonstration in this
Kingdom, contract labor will not
need to wait the doubtful action of
politicians to ehoke it olf, for it will die
a natural death, the prettiest kind
of death that any national abuse
can adopt fur its mode of exit.
LAND AND POLITICS.
This morning's J'. C. Adeerihcr
gives cheering accounts of acliuty
in the Interior Department. The
officials there, wc aie informed, arc
really engaged in preliminary sur
veys, and in gathering information.
As great bodies move with pio
vcrbial deliberation, and with sine
certainty, the public will only have
to wait patiently and the results of
the oflloials' exercises will appear
some day. Public lands available
for settlement aie to be shaken up
out of the dusty records of the
Kingdom, notice is to be given of
their location and extent, fees aie to
be paid, applications received, and
some fine morning in the cycles of
the future, the beams of the oiicnt
will fall upon thousands of happy
homes, where before the wild weeds
and grasses did service for the Ha
waiian "forest - primeval." The
. picture will be enlarged and its
beauty intensified by the supple
mentary patriotism of private citi
zens. Already, some private citi
zens arc iu the Held with generous
public spirited proposals for the
settlement of the country. "When
the Government moves, when pii
vate land-owners move, when the
people more, and when all move
together to dot the valleys and the
mountain slopes with real homes, a
revolution, bloodless, tlioiough and
salutary will have been brought
about. The grandest ideal of a
great nation, a nation consisting
of the homes and families of a free
people, will then have been real
ized. Viewing this ideal of the Ha
waiian Kingdom, however, in the
light of present realities is too much
like contemplating the planets at
mid-day from the bottom of a coal
mine. The stars of home and
liberty can only be gazed at through
misty intervals of space by thousands
of the people of this Kingdom.
Under the existing contract labor
laws, and landed monopolies, the
elevation of the gicat masses of the
nation to the conditions already des
cribed is as well established within
the possibilities of existence as is tlio
certainty of the coal-inincr taking a
pleasant evening drive in Cynthia's
silver chariot. Contract labor laws
and free institutions are self-evident
antagonistic forces. Gencial prosper
ity coupled with the possession of a
fair share of the comforts of life by
the masses has proved, during an
experience of eight centuries, in
England, to be unattainable iu con
junction with landlordism. The in
stitution of landlordism, which is
tlio burning question in British poli
tics at the present time, and with
ever increasing complications is
coming face to face with the states
manship of that country, and has
proved iu several instances to bo a
slumbering volcano under the very
foundation of society, sceniu to have
taken deep root in the islands of
Hawaii. Closely allied with it U the
labor contract system, which is but
thu slavery of the Southern States
of America transplanted and revivi
fied in a modified form. While men
labor under bonds, there is not much
to inspire them to btrivo after those
higher and nobler conceptions of
life that animate men when their
time, their minds and muscles are
their own. The ship of state,
freighted with landlordism and the
labor contract system, is already
beginning to straw very hard, and
The letter of "Kamaaina" con
tains food for reflection, which, if
digested, may result in beneficent
supplies of food of more malciial
kinds for the people of Honolulu.
Recently an Anarchist plot to as
sassinate members of the Govern
nicnt, for activity in proceeding
against the society, was discovered
in Belgium, and fifteen Anarchists
were arrested. According to the
new gospel of lcgulaling social evils
by licensed monopolies, the Euro
pean Governments would most
effectually reduce the pest of an
archy by licensing a limited number
of responsible assassins. These,
after paying a round premium for
the privilege of going after obnoxi
ous politicians, could take their pay
from the society for every victim
bagged. By their jealous defense
of the monopoly, tho danger to men
of mark would be reduced. When
a great man was "dropped" with a
dagger, bullet or bomb, his death
would not be any more unpleasant
from being produced by a monopoly
than by irresponsible cranks.
nidi LICENSE IN MISSOURI.
The legislature of Missouri, not
long since, adopted a stiingcnt high
license system for the regulation of
the liquor trafllc in that state. That
system has been modified by amend
ments so as to increase it's string
ency ; and these amendments wont
into effect on the 2fld of last dune.
Une of the amendments declares
that saloon-keepers shall not sell,
give or otherwise dispose of any in
toxicating liquors to minors without
the written permission of their pa
rents, masters, or guardians; that
no minor shall be employed in any
saloon in which intoxicating liquors
are sold, or be permitted to frequent
or remain there, or play any game
therein, without the written consent
of his parent, guardian or master,
and that for every violation of these
provisions the saloon-keeper shall
be liable to iv line of fifty dollars,
and be deemed guilty of a misde
meanor, for which he is liable to
further punishment. The. second
amendment provides that not less
than one gallon of intoxicating li
quors may be sold at the place
where made, provided that the liquor
is not drunk on the premises. The
law formerly was that not less than
one quart might be thus sold. Now
the quantity is fixed at not less than
one gallon." The third amendment
abolishes wine and beer houses al
together; and the effect of this will
be to require all aloons to have
dram-shop licenses, at a licene
cost of from S.loO (to SI .200 per
year. These amendments, though
not absolutely prohibitory of all
liquor trafllc in Missouri, are de
signed to limit that trafllc, and in
this way to lessen the evils resulting

Edmok BL'i.unix: Mr. Mar
qucs's article in the Bui.i.ktim of
August Stli, is his side of the don't
pay business. It is not true that
there is no call for ood vegetables
or ripe fruits; else why arc such
large quantities brought from the
Coast by each steamer? It is true
that the call for the kinds that we
are obliged to purchase is limited,
and it don't pat to raise them.

article and I think to the far-famed
New Zealand ones. Again, quan

vegetables are all poor, the most of
them are gathered too green, notably
string beans. Were the vegetables

they would be good ; a sample of

possible but profitable, to cultivate

even on this island, so do sweet
corn, pumpkins, squashes, etc. Chi
nese arc not proper authority in
these matters. They go in for
quantity not quality. In regard to
fruits, the same can be said, little

gathers the fruit (or vegetable)
almost as soon as it forms, and by a
handling and squeezing process,
and in some cases by a gentle mani
pulation on the trowser log, attracts
a victim, and succeeds in disposing
of an unripe, unhealthy, poisonous
article. One drawback i will admit
to the raising of flr.st-class fruits

of the demand ; but I will say that
the grower of good fruits and vege
