THE SUCAR INDUSTRY.
An. elaborate article on the state
of the sugar business the world
over, appears in the Melbourne Age
of the 10th inst. The writer is evi
dently well stocked with facts and
figures from various sources. Notice
is taken, at the outset, of the ad
vance in prices which is said to have
taken " marvellous strides" of late.
Twenty-four pounds, ten shillings per
ton, is the quotation from London,
or an advance of CO per cent. This
grent change in the market is des
cribed as a " phenomenal return to
prosperity." The writer then goes
on to investigate the causes of this
extraordinary change. The leading,
if not the only cause, is found to be
the general failure, in European
countries, of beet culture. Beets
can be raised by good cultivation in
soils of average fertility in unlimited
quantities in almost any climate,
while the cultivation of the cane is
limited to the tropics. But lucre
seems to be, in the raising of beets,
a larger element of uncertainty than
in the raising of sugar cane. That
such is the case is about the only
guarantee that those interested in
cane growing have that they will not
be brought into such close, keen
competition in the sugar markets of
the world, as to leave them out in
the cold, any day. While the profits
of cane growing are contingent upon
the failure of some other crop in
other parts of the world, capitalists
will be more cautious than formerly
in investing their money in it.
Bounties have been offered on a
liberal scale by France and Ger
many for the encouragement of the
sugar beet industry. The indica
tions are that England, too, will
adopt similar measures. Experi
ments iccently made by English
planners havje given, on the whole,
satisfactory results. A distinguished
agricultural chemist of that country
has given his opinion to the effect
that the raising of sugar beet, in
England, will pay better than raising
wheat. The Australian Colonics and
New Zealand arc also starting in the
competitive race against the sugar
cane. The Government of New
Zealand had 'a bill passed a short
time ago authorizing payment of
one-half penny per pound as a pre
mium on the first thousand tons of
beet root grown in the colon'. Vic
toria farmers, too,' have also mani
fested considerable interest in the
new enterprise. Government having
obtained a quantity of seeds, for
free distribution, a great many ap
plications were made. All that has
been done, however, is of an experi
mental character. The farmers will
' go into this branch of agriculture
whenever they obtain icasonabic
assurances of a market for tho root.
But, should machinery for extract
ing sugar from the beet bo erected
on any extensive scale, Australian
agriculturalists will bo in the field to
compete with "West India, American
and Hawaiian planters. Of course,
if failures in beet root crops con
tinue, and thus frighten the culti
vators of European lands out of tho
business, no danger need bo appre
hended from their competition in tho
European markets. And although
the probable shortage for the present
season in European beet root is
' quoted at 375,000 tons, it is not
reasonable to infer therefrom that a
like deficiency will occur in nil parts
of the world where tho beet is as
likely to flourish us in Europe.
When beet root crni bo cullivatedj
ns stated, in England moro profita
bly than wheat crops, tho time may
not be far distant when tho Northern
and Western States as also tho
western provinces of Canada will
turn sonic of their millions of ncrcs
of wheat growing lands into beet
root sugar plantations. Then, with
Australia, Now Zealand, America
and Europe against the West Indies,
the Southern Slates and the Hawaiian
Islands, it will be bad for tho cano
industry. Tho effect of such a
wotld-wido competition cannot be
otherwises than disastrous to tho
great staple industry of Hawaii.
Before such a combination of adverse
circumstances conies to maturity,
"forewarned is foi canned," and the
great investments in sugar planta
tions on these islands will probably
have time enough to be diverted to
colonization, diversified agriculture
and other enterprises.
A "Subscriber" writes to expose
an alleged gross cheat. As the
writer does not give his own name,
we would be badly left in the lurch
in case of a libel suit for the publi
cation of the letter.
Mr. Ilarland, Mayor of Belfast,
who recently accepted a baronetcy
of the United Kingdom, had pre
viously declined a knighthood. He
spent a hundred thousand dollars
out of his own pocket during the
recent visit of the Prince of Wales
to Belfast. What do ,thc noble souls
of Honolulu say to such munificent
patriotism as that? If Belfast has
a few citizens like Mayor Ilarland,
there is no fear that her printing
olllces will be compelled to do the
printing for every public celebration
The Cure Labcllc, a famous patriot-priest
of Canada, in a letter
from Paris, says the people of the
metropolis remark a likeness in his
pronunciation to that obtaining "at
Rochelle, in Normandy, inBretagne ;
it is the veritable pronunciation of
the time of Louis XIV." This
agrees with the judgment of emi
nent French scholars who have
visited Canada and found that the
2alois of the habitants is the lan
guage spoken in France two cen
turies ago. The educated French
of Montreal and Quebec speak the
Parisian language of to-day in its
purity, accounts of pedantic tourists
tp the contrary notwithstanding.
Danish settlers in the Province of
New Brunswick, Canada, have re
markably prospered. Some of them
have even amassed considerable
wealth. With an abundance of
land, comprising soil adapted to an
extensive range of productions, and
a climate very agreeable to them
and free from the violences of the
West, the lines of these people fell
in pleasant places when they cast in
their lot with tho bluenoses. Ex
perience has demonstrated that the
hardy European races can adapt
themselves to the Hawaiian climate.
It is, therefore, gratifying to know,
as we have received a hint, that the
promoters of the recently projected
colonizing scheme for this island in
tend to have the inducements for
agricultural settlement here made
known in Europe.
Prof. Tyndall devoted the pro
ceeds of his lecturing tour of 1872
3, in tho United States, to the en
couragement of studies in physical
science. The amount was over $18,
000, and it was committed to the
charge of three trustees. Originally
the main object of the fund was
"to assist American scientific stu
dents to spend some years at Euro
pean universities, it being the
founder's desire that each scholar
should remain four years at a Ger
man university." This having been
found impracticable, owing to most
students objecting to tho terms, with
Professor Tyndall's consent a modi
fication of the scheme has been ob
tained. It is announced that the
accumulated fund, amounting to
$32,000, is t be devoted to tho
maintenance by Harvard, Columbia
and Pennsylvania universities of
graduate scholarships in the Depart
ment of Physics. Science predicts
that the name of Prof. Tyndall, an
English physicist, will always be
remembered with gratitude in the
land that gavo Rumford to hold a
.distinguished position in the Royal
institution of Great Britain.

" Tho Executive Committee of tho
Fourth of July celebration met yes
terday to finish up tho business con
nected with tho celebration of Inde
pendence day. According to tho
leport of tho Finance Committee-,
87,288.15 was at tho disposal of tho
general committee for the cclobra
tion, $3,000 of which had been ap
propriated by tho Board bf Super
visors, and the rest having been
received from public subscription,
except 8250.15, ,which was loft over
from last year's fund. Tho expen
ditures for the celebration amounted
to 80,937.07, leaving a balance on
hand of 8301.08. It was decided to
transfer this surplus to the com
mittee on tho Grant Monument
fund." A 7'. Bulletin, Aug. 15.
Euitou Bui.m:tin : Well, what
aro you going to do about it? .In
defatigable committees and secreta
ries have rights, and so has the
community. Two months have
elapsed since Hie 4th July celebra
tion, and the committee still ignore
the public by silence us regards ex
pendituresto whom and what for.
It is a shame, when airge city like
San Francisco can havo thousands
placed in the hands of its executive
committee, that makes a final report
inside of thirty days and, shows a
comfortable balance to be dcVbtcd
to the Grant monument. I hope
next 4th July may arrive- with a new
set of managers of the public's
money, who will not be afraid to
show their vouchers and what they
arc for. The subscription papers to
be seen do not show how the money
was spent. More anon.
