THE QUESTION OF THE DAY.
Mr. Horner's colleagues generally
regard tliat gentleman's remarks on
the Chinese question as having been
ill-advised and uttered without duo
consideration. Several of thorn in
open session disclaimed the favoring
of Chinese immigration. At the
same time, it is not Chinese on the
plantations that troubles the coun
try. They would be all right if
confined to the purposes for which
they arc admitted to the country.
The evil comes in where coolie
laborers that have completed their
contracts arc allowed to compete, in
the independent trade and industry
of the country, with people who,
unlike them, live the lives, support
the institutions, bear the burdens
and stand for the defense of the
civilized society that constitutes the
nation. That is the difficulty that
is to be overcome in this kingdom,
and perhaps the problem cannot be
solved in any way short of eradicat
ing the whole contract labor system,
and admitting free labor only of
such nationalities as would be ac
ceptable for population and prob
able candidates for citizenship.
THE EXHIBITION BUILDINGS.
One good thing the Royal Ha
waiian Agricultural Society has un
dertaken is the removal of the exhi
bition buildings from AVnikiki to the
Government nursery grounds on
King street. Although still far
enough away from town, the new
site is a great improvement on the
old in point of convenience of access
by the population. Exhibitions have
a recognized value as a stimulus to
productive industry, probably less
on account of prizes and honorable
certification than for their educative
influences and facilities. Apart
from the financial consideration of
necessity to be taken into account
by their managers, exhibitions are
to be regarded as successful in the
degree that they attract both exhi
bitors and spectators. Their loca
tion is therefore a matter of the very
first importance. It has been proved
that, while Waikiki was suitable for
a horse show, from the existence of
the driving park there, as well as the
fact that a matter of two or three
miles is of no account with horses,
that place is entirely out of the way
for agriculturists on this island and
those from other islands who have
to land at the wharves in Honolulu,
as well as for the general public,
that never require a great deal of
persuasion to go to sec a respectable
exhibition when it is within reason
able reach. It was the didlculty nnd
the expense of getting to Wnilriki
that chiefly caused the failure of tho
horticultural exhibitions nttempted
at that place the past two years.
"We do not know but that the new
site will be found too far away until
a street railway is built, and it might
be worth while for the Agricultural
Society to consider the advisability
of obtaining one of the skating links
for next year's show, There is
room in one of those structures all
that is required being, perhaps, a
temporary floor and partitions, with
a few sheds outside for ns full n
display as is likely to bo got up.
The large stock show might as well
be held on a different day, either at
Waikiki or on tho Esplanade.
Poultry and pet stock could be com
bined with the agricultural, including
horticultural and floral, exhibition.
Since the foregoing was written, the
Advertiser has come out with ap
proval of the removal of the build
ings, upon similar grounds to those
An able and elaborate report was
read by Mr. B. F. Dillinghatn from
the Committee of Live Stock at the
meeting of the Planters' Labor and
Supply Company, a wool: ago. Some
of tho statistics of the report were
collated from statistics gathered from
the Custom House records of the
past nine years and nine months.
During that period, Ufl stallions were
imported nt a cost of $18650; and
1G8 bulls, at a cost of S21000. The
prices paid for bulls varied from
!?50toSGlU. The invoice value of
all the live stock imported into the
kingdom during the past nine years
and nine months was $55)5,105.53.
Mules to the number of 1707 and 1029
horses other than those abovo
enumerated, were imported at a
cost of S'101,910. These extensive
importations of beasts of burden,
the committee believe, ought to
encourngc and stimulate stock rais
ing to an extent sufllcient to meet
the demands of the home market.
An examination of the tax returns
shows the taxable stock of horses,
cattle, mules, sheep, goats, and jack
asses to have been, on the eight
islands of Oahu, Kahoolawc, Maui,
Molokai, Lanai, Hawaii, Kauai, Nii
hau, to have been $2,202,294; and
in 1884, $5,G59,911. Last year,
the numbers were: horses, 30,1-10;
cattle, 117,G13; mules, 2,9-12 ;
sheeps, 121, G83; goats, 21,800;
jackasses, 278. The greatest in
crease in numbers occurs in sheep,
of which there arc 88,8G3 more than
in 1879. On Oahu, there are 4,59,7
horses, valued at $574,025 ; 2G,841
cattle, $805,230 ; 237 mules, $29,
G25; 102 sheep, $153; 400 goats,
$400; 1 jackass, $500: total ani
mals, 32,178; value, $1,410,533.
The Island of Oahu, it appears
from the above figures, owns some
what over one-ninth the number,
and one-fourth the value of all the
live stock in the Kingdom. An
estimate is given of the annual con
sumption of beef and mutton on
the four principal islands. Hawaii,
Maui. Oahu and Kauai. On Oahu,
the beef and veal amount to 0,500
carcases ; mutton, 8,500 ; the other
three islands together take 9,500
carcases of beef and 3,200 of
An offer was received from San
Francisco to purchase 400 carcases
of beef and 1,000 carcases of mut
ton per month to be shipped by the
bi-monthly steamers, in refrigerator
rooms. The supply not being suffi
cient to fill such orders in addition
to the home demand, the offer was
Those of our readers abroad who
are of the benevolent opinion that

rice, will find an eye-opener under

The Press is authority for the
statement that the Russian man-of-war
"Massagcr" may shortly be ex
pected here, with her captain com
missioned to dissuade His Majesty
from selling the kingdom to the
United States, or, if ho is bound to
sell out, to induce him to give Rus
sia the refusal. This intimation is
based upon an article copied from a
Russian by a French paper, and the
cause of Russia's notion is the
rumor that went round the world re
garding Mr. Daggett's mission from
His Majesty to Washington.
Some people are asking if the
merchants who obstruct tho side
walks with goods pay rent to the
Interior Department. They also
ask if the police are supposed to
take cognizance of breaches of or
dinances, without being armed with
warrants issued upon the complaint
of persons who may venture to make
a stand upon the rights of the pub
lic. In regard to both questions,
we would say that, being points of
law and wholly in the public inter
est, they flioulrt be referred to the
Attorney-General. The obstruc
