CIVIL SERVICE REFORM.
Tliis is one of the standing themes
on which our contemporaries abroad
are lavishing a large amount of dis
cussion. Civil service reform is now
acccpteda as a.very desirable object .
It means the abolition of the old
fashioned system of appointment to
olllee under government, on the ole
recommendation that the applicant
is in favor with the appointing
power. Personal friends of mem
bers of legislatures were always, in
the line of succession to the best
billets,- no matter how destitute they
were of the first qualification for the
duties entrusted to them. Abuses,
of course, under such a system, be
came unbearable, and the opinion is
gaining volume and force in all free
countries that the claims of the pub
lic to elllcient service are necessary
to be taken into account when ap
pointments are made. It was pro
bably the only sphere in which an
employee could live and grow
fat .on superior ignorance of
his business. Examinations of candi
dates for olllcc arc now becoming
necessary preliminaries to appoint
ments, and the quackery of olllcial
inefllcieney will, before many years,
be a thing of the past.
A Chicago lady, forty-second
cousin to John Young's grandaunt,
is trying to get hold of Queen
Emma's estate. She will do it
sooner and cheaper by raising a
pirate fleet than by feeing lawyers.
An apprecintory sketch of the
American Sugar Refinery has been
issued as an extra to the San Fran
cisco Merchant. It is estimated
that this establishment, that is to
handle more than half the product
of these Islands, gives employment
to at least 5,000 people, no Chinese
being engaged, and lias u capacity
of G00,000 pounds of sugar daily.
The objection heretofore made to
our treaty with the Sandwich Islands
was that under it the sugar produc
tion of Hawaii was in the hands of a
monopoly controlled in this city by
Mr. Spreekels. True, Mr. Spreckels
was the first to see that Hawaii, in
her sugar production, would hold
the same relation to the supply on
this coast that Cuba does to the
Atlantic and Gulf States, and he
was the Hist to develop that pro
duction. Great enterprises wrought
out of the rough have always de
pended upon the genius and the
energies of individuals, and the
proof of foiesight and concentration
of the commercial instinct is always
furnished by a growth that outruns
the possibility of control by one In
dividual, or one partnership, or one
eoi poration. We neither attack nor
defend the means used to develop
the Hawaiian sugar plantations, for
whatever they were they are justified
by results and by the great coin
liiurce that has snrunir up between
this coast and that country, a com
merce whose extinction now or
diversion would pinch to death greaf
collateral interests. It is sullleient
for us to know that there is no longer
any monopoly, for the sugar trade
of' the islands lias reached the final
commercial stage by outgrowing the
control of the men who created it.
The current crop lias sought and
found a market entirely (.utide of
Mr. Spreckels' control. His rival,
the American Refinery, has taken it,
and a large share of it has been sold
to.the rclineriesoF Louisiana. These
last have only a short run on the
raw sugars of Louisiana every year.
Thev have heretofore supplemented
it by use of the Cuba crop, but tins
is every year impeded at a certain
point by quarantine regulations, and
the refineries lie idle to the loss of
the capital and the damage of the
labor which they employ. They llud
now that the island crop supplies
them with raw material to extend
their run, and so they have become
customers for it. No other testi
mony is needed to prove that the
monopoly of Hawaii sugar produc
tion has accomplished its purpose
and been outrun by the commerce it
lias created. Alta California.

We copy from timAlta California
two articles that appeared therein
at different dates recently, supple
menting Hint paper's able argument
on behalf of the treaty, previously
republished in these columns. An
interesting point in one of these
articles is where the sending of Ha
waiian sugar to Louisiana is shown
to be in response to a demand from
there. Tho Spreckels newspapers,
in their jealous blindness, tried to
make that business out as utterly
inimical to tho treaty and a piece of
suicidal madness. Hawaiian sugar,
in truth, is wnnted in Louisiana by
tho planters themselves, who arc the
chief stockholders in the local refin
eries, to supply the deficiency be
tween tho capacity of tho latter and
their own crop.
