l-'MDAY, FE. fi, 188(5.
Mr. U. 11. HueUlatul, Agent for the
New Zealand Government in San
Francisco, Haiti to an Alia repoilcr
that lie expected that Sir Alexander
Stewart would arrive in Snn Fran
cisco on the next Australian steamer,
and would there meet a gentleman,
"to complete arrangements for the
establishment of a cable system via
New Zealand, the Pha-nix Group
and the Hawaiian Islands 1 a11
Francisco, which would connect all
the Colonics by telegraph except
South Australia, which lias its
special line via Tones to Singapore,
and so on to Europe. The Govern
ment has already promised to con
tribute a certain subsidy to the new
line. It is understood that James
Gordon Ilctinctt has volunteered
them every assistance with his new
cable as soon as it is in working
order." This is good news, seem
ingly having something in it. The
Hawaiian Minister of Finance is
authorized by a law of the last
Legislature to contract for pay
ing a subsidy to a cable, to
an amount not exceeding twenty
thousand dollars and for a period
not exceeding llftccn years, upon
conditions satisfactory to the King
in Privy Council.
DIVERSIFIED INDUSTRIES ACAIN.
The Evening Jiullctin, of Provi
dence, U. I., which is emphatically
a city of diversified manufacturing
industries, in an elaborate article
reviewing the business of the past
" it has been character-
i.cd by a noticeable improvement in
several branches of trade, an in
creased degree of activity generally,
and a more hopeful, confident feel
ing as to the future." Exceptions,
however, to the general condition of
liusincss, arc made, in the cotton
tiadc, which shows " a very low
range of values" aud reduced
profits; in the flour trade, which
lias ruled dull ; the carriage trade
"very poor;" the furniture trade,
in which "prices 'have suffered a
large reduction, the depreciation on
staple articles amounting to about
20 percent;" in harness-making,
" the business of which lias not been
satisfactory to dealers ;" in musical
merchandise, where "there is a
wholesale stealing of English music
by American publishers' and vice
versa, so that there is a good deal
of sheet music in the market selling
at ruinously cheap prices;" in
masons' building material, which
fell fiat and "a small volume of
business was done;" in print cloths,
in which " the year has, upon the
whole, been an unsatisfactory one,"
although this is a " most important
factor of the cotton industries of
lihodc Island, and, although the
aggregate of sales reached 2,0G2,800
pieces, the average price has been
lower than ever known before, being
3.12 the past year as against 3.35
in 1884, and as compared with an
average of -1.01 for the past ten
years." In other lines of business,
there has been unusual activity and
tho effect of the depreciations
enumerated is reduced to a minimum
in the multiplicity of industries for
which the city is noted. Tho sum
total of deficiencies is more than
counterbalanced by surpluses in
other directions. Cotton and print
factories being numerous and on a
largo scale, arc the main sources of
employment for thousands of the
population; but tho contraction in
the prices of their goods, whilo caus
ing stockholders to feci a little blue
about their profits, has not produced
apy apparent strain upon the general
prosperity. The self-evident con
clusions to he drawn from this satis
factory state of affairs a n maiiu-
nCliiiliiB'jItyfti'O finite ni.)jiro)rIitfe
lo llirt eircumstniujcs of the lliuvtiKtut
Islands. If Providence cnloi prists
had been conllned to those lines of
business in which tho largest pro
portion of capital seems to be in
vented, the cry of tho season would
bo " dull times," whereas the con
trary is Hits case. Nature has evi
dently designed these Islands for
agricultural industiics, but there
has been a tendency to appropriate
most of the land to the raising of
two or three ai tides, for which, it is
admitted, both soil and climate arc
particularly well adapted; but the
equally favorable adaptations to
many other productions have not
been fully taken advantage of. If
the remarks made by our Providence
namesake on cotton were applicable,
in the Hawaiian metropolis, to
sugar, a very gloomy state of busi
ness on our streets would be the
result. While times arc passably
good, the necessity for branching
out Into new lines of agricultural
enterprise is not felt, but variety is
none the less certain to be condu
cive to a well-founded condition of
prosperity in a country of manifold
agricultural capabilities as well as in
a gicat manufacturing city.
The native electors will experience

Artesian well-boiing is being very

Valley, and it is stated by a local
paper that within the next six
months there will probably be three
limes the present number of wells.
Hawaii has no mineral wealth, pro
bably, but she may have the ele

make them yield perpetual riches
