ADVERTISE OUR ADVANTAGES.
The praises of advertising as a
blister to draw trade have been rung
thousands of times in the ears of
traders. It is not so often that the
public are commended to advertising
systematically as a means of ac
quainting the world with the advan
tages capable of being offered out
side enterprise to make its abode
with a particular community. We
notice that the Board of Trade of
Tampa, Florida, is making use of
this potent agency to induce the in
vestment of capital in that town.
At a recent meeting, that bod' re
solved to have an advertisement
published in a Chicago, a Boston
and two New York papers, " showing
the advantages afforded for the esta
blishment of canning and ice fac
tories" at Tampa. A report of the
meeting further shows that a cigar
manufacturer of New York was pre
sent, consulting with the merchants
upon a proposal to remove his fac
tory to their town. Certain impedi
ments being taken out of the way,
lie would locate his factory there,
and he said he would bring with him
from 300 to J00 employees, and
assured the meeting that they would
be a class of persons that would do
honor to the town. "His address
was well received," says the report
in the Tampa Guardian, "and he
was assured that his manufactory
would be welcomed, and that every
inducement possible would be ex
tended to him." It strikes us that
the Chamber of Commerce of Hono
lulu might do worse than make a
note of the action of this Florida
town's business men. If that body
deems work of the kind mentioned
outside of its province, then we
should have the Society for the Pro
motion of Home Industry advocated
by this journal at different times.
When the late Wilder Government
wanted to provide this port with a
dry dock or marine railway, they
advertised in all the countries most
likely to yield satisfactory responses.
The result was they, procured per
haps the best special engineering
skill for the purpose the United
States ever produced, in the person
of Mr. Crandall. He, in turn, was
able, from his experience and know
ledge, to select a first-class corps of
workmen to construct the works
decided upon. It is suroly worth
trying the virtue of advertising, to
induce foreign capital to conic to
Honolulu for investment in such in
dustrial enterprises as may, in the
wisdom of intelligent residents, be
deemed promising of fair prollt.
Undoubtedly it will be necessary for
any colonization project, that may
take definite shape out of the agita
tion of that subject, to be made
known far and wide by special and
organized effort, in order that early
success may be ensured. If this
city is to make the progress that it
should, its advantages as the seat of
new industries must not bo permit
ted to lie hid from the world, for
want of the trifling means that would
be required to givo them due pub
licity in the centres of tho world's
idle capital. The holders of our
htreet railway franchise, if they
mean business, would, we arc con
vinced, display the truest sagacity
by publishing their prospectus in
lending journals of New York, Chi-
CHECKING CHINESE IMMIGRATION.
According to an nrticlo in the
Advertiser, the Government has
adopted measures for preventing the
immigration of Chinese beyond tho
proportions authorized by the laws
of the kingdom. An order wns issued
on the eighth of .Inly last to the
Hawaiian Consul-Cleneral at Hong
kong, forbidding the issuance of re
turn passports to anyone, except
women or persons known to him to
have been residents of this kingdom.
Owing to the representation" of this
Government, the Hongkong Govern
ment, acting under instructions fiom
the llritish Colonial Secretary, will
not permit any direct shipment of
Chinese from Hongkong to any port
in the Hawaiian kingdom. These
positive measures are an encourag
ing indication that the Hawaiian
Government is still amenable to pub
lic opinion when expressed with no
A REASONABLE LIBEL LAW.
A revised libel law has been pass
ed by the Michigan Legislature. It
provides that the plaintiff shall re
cover only actual damages if the
publication was made in good faith
and did not involve a criminal
charge ; that its falsity was duo to
mistake or misapprehension of the
facts, and that, in the next regular
issue after the publisher was inform
ed of the libel, a correction was
made in as conspicuous a place as
the libel. Also, that in any libel
suit the plaintiff shall not be entitled
to recover, in addition to actual
damages, any greater sum than
5,000. "Actual damages" are to
be construed to include all damages
the plaintiff may show he has suffer

VIEWING THE RANCHES.
(Editorial Correspondence of the
FisnuY, August Mill, 1885.
At an early hour this morning, the
party start off for Kahuku. The
line of march is by way of the Ku
nia windmill. For a few miles, after
leaving this point, the way to the
Waialua road is over beautiful level
fields, lying under the finest verdure.
The Waialua road is struck at a
point about 18 miles from Honolulu,
and the greater part of this road on
to Waialua is wide, smooth and
solid ; so that three or four carriages
might drive abreast on it. The
landscapes are very fine. A most
romantic spot, the outlines of which
impress themselves upon the memory,
is found in the Kaukauahoa gulch.
A heavy mountain stream comes
gurgling along in a continuous series
of marches and countermarches
through the low red bluffs meeting
it zig-zag, at every fifty yards of its
course. The last six or seven miles
of the ride to Waialua arc in full view
of the village and a large area of
adjacent country, with the deep blue
of the Pacific lying beyond. On the
left, the Waianac mountains lisc
skyward in towering grandeur, one
of the peaks. in near view being the
highest in the range. Eastward, the
horizon is full of rolling mountains,
their high peaks and cones standing
ui) like watchtowcrs in their aerial
isolation. The cane fields in the
vicinity of Waialua add a feature of
rich beauty and luxuriance to the
whole landscape. The neat white
cottages of the village nestle in the
midst of clumps of fine trees ; and
standing out in bold relief on the
margin of the perspective is the
Ilalstead sugar mill. It is rather
refreshing, after coming through
some fifteen miles of unpeopled
solitudes to sec, even in the distaucc,
signs of life and industry. It may
bo interesting to persons intending
to drive in wheeled vehicles to Wai
nlua to know that approaching ihe
village, there are four or five miles
of a clear run down hill. Our
modest cavalcade draws up under
the trees in front of the sugar mill.
Ilalf-an-hour is spent in observing
the interesting operation of milling
sugar cane. The cane is carted up
from the fields near by to the back
door of the establishment, and in a
very short time, it is run between
iron rollers ; and the then sugarless
"trash" is taken back to another
field where it is spread out
to be dried for fuel for the furnaces.
The caue juice flows down through
a spout in the side of the machino
under tho rollers, into nn invisible
receptacle below. It is passed
through the boilers and the vacuum
pan to the centrifugal, a machine
that, I am informed, was invented
and first used in these islands, but
has since been brought into use in
sugar mills everywhere. A great
tub of stuff, in appearance very
much like tar, is emptied into a large
cngo, Boston, San Francisco,
don and Paris.
pot shaped vessel, having nn insido
lining perforated. This is now set
in motion, 'and goes whirling round
at tho rate of J 2,000 revolutions a

tho contents up against tho sides of
the esscl with gioat force; the
liquid strains through tho perforated
lining, and in a minute or two, the
machine is stopped, the clear brown
sugar remains and is at once scooped
out, and the centrifugal is ready to

The Enterprise ranch, belong
ing to tho Emerson Estate, is
briefly visited. Some good speci
mens of horse flesh, and some lino

witli young trees, which, with judi
cious pruning, will soon afford re

The Kawailoa Ranch is reached
about mid day. Mr. Dickson
dispenses tho hospitalities of the
establishment in a manner that makes
the invading guests feel very much
at home and regret that they were
not there to stay. The Knwaialoa
is a fine ranch, is wcll-slockcd anu
comprises every variety of soil,
surface and scenery. The ranch
house is delightfully situated within
stone's throw of the ocean ; the
premises having been planted with
trees arranged at such distances as
to affoid just the right proportions
of light and shade. The cattle on a
part of the ranch among the moun
tains are supplied with abundance of
the drinking clement by means of a
large reservoir imulcby throwing dam
across a gulch. The dam has a width
of 100 feet at the base, tapering to
five feet at the top, and reaches
from side to side of the gulch a dis
tance of 110 feet. The surplus
waters of rainy seasons, whether
long or short, arc thus wisely stored,
and the animals congregate here to
drink, with methodic regularity. On
some of the ridges of these moun
tains, the land is perfectly smooth,
and can be driven over with a buggy
and span of horses, six or seven
miles at a stretch.
The ride from Kawailoa to
Kahuku is over some thirteen
miles of almost unbroken level
land, averaging probably about
two miles wide from the baso of the
mountains to the sea shore. Wind
mills here and there along the plains,
their fans whirling in the breezy
trades, and glistening in the sun
light, supply some touches of orna
mentation to the otherwise monoton
ous solitudes. If there arc charms
in solitude, here they may be en
joyed to the full. The poet's ex
"Better dwell in the midst of alarms
Than icigii in this honiblc place,"
cannot be appreciated, at least, by
one, who neither reigns nor dwells
here, but is onlj1 passing on to Ka
huku. There are, however, certain
charms even in solitude; and if
nature ever intended to invest un
peopled lands with exquisite beauty,
surely this island, so far as we have
seen it, is one of her chosen resting
places. But if there is any vandalism
in changing the face of nature by
the application of utilitarian theories,
evidently vandalism is at a discount
in this portion of the mundane
Not a dog barks on all these
beautiful expanses of country. The
sea waves break on miles upon miles
of silent shores. Herds of fine
cattle feed on wide spreading plains
of tho finest verdure. But the
habitations of man are few, exceed
ingly few. One or two humble
dwellings about a mile from Kawai
loa, another cot or two in a beauti
ful sequestered dell at Waianac, and
a small cluster of grass huts with a
nice timber dwelling, about a mile
and a half from Kahuku, contribute
all there is of human life in the
make-up of one of the most beauti
ful belts of country in Oahu. Ap
proaching Kahuku, the ranch house

buildings, standing on a slightly
elevated slope on a great plain of
some three thousand acres, fringed

array of bold mountain spurs, with
the rays of the setting sun falling
