MR. J. C. LANE'S MISSION.
Mr. J. C. Lane, representing the
McKenney Directory Company, of
San Francisco, camo to Honolulu .on
the steamship Australia in the in
terests of McKenncy's directory.
This work, in which is incorporated
a directory of these islands, is well
knowu to the people of this country.
Mr. Lane is here with the intention
of visiting the various islands, and
preparing material for a new, en
larged, and improved eddition of
the work. His headquarters are
at the store of Mr. Graeuhalgh,
Fort street. One fact in connec
tion with this director' is, that it is
kept ut all the leading places of re
sort throughout the United States.
A HONOLULU BUSINESS DIREC
TORY. As will be 3een by an advertise
ment in another column of this
issue, preliminary steps have been
taken by a party of Honolulu resi
dents to publish immediately a Ho
nolulu Business Directory ; and tho
venture will be proceeded with ir
respective of anyone who is said to
have arrived by the S. S. Australia
from San Francisco with a similar
object in view. Home enterprise
should certainly be preferred to
fereign, in matters that are purely
of a local nature ; and the matter
of a Honolulu Business Directory
is not so difficult as to require
foreign aid. Messrs'. J. E. Brown
& Co., Merchant street, aro the
agents for the Honolulu syndicate ;
and we hope they will receive suf
ficient patronage to make their ven
ture a success.
TESTIMONY TAKEN FKOSt TINSMITHS,
ETC., ON CHINESE QUESTION.
Tho following is a summary of
the evidenco tnken beforo the Legis
lative committee on tho Chinese
question on Monday evening.
Statement of John Nott: Have
been in the tinsmith and plumbing
business for twent3'-four years or
more in Honolulu. There were two
others (white men) in the trade
here, from 18G3 to 1870. There
four of us now and I know of four
Chinese establishments in our line,
which have been started within a few
years. I heard Mr. Bttshee's state
ment as to prices having fallen since
tho Chinese started to compete with
us, and it is quite truo they work
longer hours. They (tho Chinese)
do not mako at their prices sufficient
to support a white mechanic and his
family. Our trade in tin ware has
dropped off. We keep our stock
on tho shelves. The trade in cer
tain articles wo used to sell is now
in tho hands of the Chinese. I am
aware that Chinese manufacturers
sell their work to wholesale stores
in this city, these in turn sell to re
tailers. Tho proBpcqt ahead looks
very bltio for tinsmiths. It will bo
oxtrcmely hard to make a living at
it. I have raised a family here but
I should not like to try and do so
again with nothing but the tinsmith
trade to depend on. I have known
Chinese to do nil the work on a build
ing; wood work, iron work, plumb
ing nnd all. Wo do not fear to
competo with foreigners Unit we
can stand, but I doa't feel hopeful
in competing with Chinese it can
not bu done. Tho Chinese arc
steadily advancing in our line. Thoy
have absorbed tho tin ware Ira e.
They nip now getting into tho busi
ness of tin roofing, gutter working,
etc. As yet they have dono 'littlo
in the plumbing 'line, but I see no
thing to prevent it eventually. In
whatever branch of our business
thoy once got into competition with
them is out of the question. I am
not a member of tho Anti-Asiatic
Union, but I signed the petition.
Mr. Einmeluth stated: I have
been ten years ut the tinsmith trade
in Honolulu, and in business for
myself since 1882. I don't do much
in tho plumbing. I rely on tho tin
smithing. There aro several Chinese
firms engaged tinsmithing hero.
White men ennnot competo with
them and mako wages. From 188
to 1883 tho business was llourishin
in this city. Gross sales of tl
ware for 1880 812,000; for 188
89,000; but they have dwindled
down until now it is hard to realize
gross $1,01)0 a year. I know tho
figures at which Chinese sell their
goods in town. I have a price list.
In many cases they sell at less than
it costs ruoUo produce the artlclo
when I was paying men only from
$2.50 to S3 per day to produce it.
(A comparative table of cost prices
of his ware and selling prices were
produced by the witness.) I don't
say that they, compete with me in
every class of my work, but they
arc rapidly taking up every branch
of it. I am hopeless for tho future.
I don't believe that the white man
can successfully compete with the
Mr. Phillips states: I do a plumb
ing business, very little in the tin
ware line. I have been in business
hero for six j'ears. I have not di
rectly felt the effect of Chinese com
petition, indirectly I may have. I
heard Mr. Nott's statement about
the competition with the Chinese,
but that is more particularly in the
tin business. My line of work has
been in the higher branches of the
trade, such as tho plumber work for
the best sorts of now buildings in
the city, and the Chinese as yet
have not begun to compete. I am
aware that they do small jobs such
as repairs, etc., they may have
done new work on some second rate
new building of their own, but I
can't say that I feel the effect very
much. Chinese are very apt at
picking up a smattering knowledge
of our profession, but we try as
much as possible to prevent them
from seeing our methods. I don't
exactly lay the fact of the dull trade
to the Chinese) for things aro dull,
anyhow. A foreigner cannot com
pete successfully with a Chinaman.
My safety is in tho fact that they
have not yet got into my line of the
business. After a Chinaman gets a
start in business ho buys none of
the raw material he uses from a
white man, but imports through
some Chinese house.
Mr. Bushee states : I am in the
employ of Mr. Nott. I have seen
and felt the efi'cct of Chinese com
petion and we are gradually feeling
it more and more. We employ four
mechanics at a rate of wages vary
ing from $3.50 to $5.50 per day.
The rale of wages is a little higher
than in San Francisco. I account'
for that that living is higher,and me
chanics get more pay hero in general
than on the Coast or in the States.
Chinese will manufacture, that is,
sell, the same class of goods from
35 to 50 per cent lower than we
can. We cannot manufacture the
samo article and sell at the price
they do, and have a margin. We
could not do it and pay wages. We
employ lour natives, they arc not
exactly mechanics, out half mecha
nic and half helper. They can do
small jobs themselves, they arc paid
from $1.50 to $2.25 per day. Chi
nese tinsmiths used to buy quantr
ties of raw material from us, but
they gradually dropped off, and now
they get all their material through
Chinese importers. I believe tho
most of tho Chinese manufactured
goods are sold to foreigners, tho
natives do a good deal of business
with us. There is one Portuguese
plumber here, he is employed at the
Hotel. Many .people in town would
employ Chineso to do small jobs of
plumbing on their houses, but I am
not aware of their doing any work
on new buildings. There is no point
in tho business, where tho Chineso
will not eventually be ablo to suc
cessful competo against the white,
for they will sooner or later be ablo
to do as good a class of work as wo
do. I did- not sign tho Anti-Asiatic
petition, I never saw it.

CLEVELAND AND THURMAN
Tho latest from tho Republican Con
vontiou. Blaine's Prospects I
San Fhancisco, Juno 19.
The political pot is boiling. As
you already know tho Democracy
have nominated Cleveland and
Thurmnn, nnd by an eccentric freak
of political humor, have also select
ed a red bandana handkerchief as
the campaign banner of the party.
Whatever may bo said t; iho con
trary, tho grand old Ohio democrat
dwarfs the President in this cam
paign. Tho New York "Tribune,"
which is seldom happy but always
bitter, had a happy hit at tho Pre
sident in a recent issue. It said
that in 1881 the cry wns Cleveland
and Reform ; now it is Cleveland
and Thurmau, but in each caso tho
tail of the ticket was greater than
Nevertheless, Cleveland is a strong
man, who has the courage of his
opinions. He has forced the issuo
of tariff reform versus protection.
No moro straddling was possible
unless the Democratic National Con
vention had repudiated the Admin
istration and denounced the Gth of
December message, condemning the
tariff. This the Convention did not
do although there wcro weak-kneed
trimmers in plenty in it; but there
was enough . stiffening around to
keep them straight, and a really ad
mirable platform was adopted, tho
Presidents message being made
part and parcel of it.
The Republican National Conven
tion meets to-day at Chicago, and
there is no unanimity in tho party.
Blaine's withdrawal from tho fight
disconcerted the .managers. His
name was a good ono to conjure
with. He is able, audacious, well
informed, practical, a splendid plat
form orator with enough Scotch
Irish blood to quicken his fighting
qualities, generous to his friends,
unscrupulous in his methods while
making success his objective point;
a man loved and feared, not spe
cially clean-handed, but one of
whom the worst had already been
said. Detraction has no terrors for
James G. Blaine. The "bitterness
of death" has long since passed in
his case, and therefore ho was just
tho kind of leader needed to rally
the Republican hosts to storm the
citadel of office and distribute the
But James G. Blaine said "No,"
and went on a coaching expedition
through Great Britain with iron
trust Carnegie on a coach-and-four.
Indeed, he has said "No," twice al
ready, but it looks as if the Conven
tion would nominate him anyway.
Tho truth is, Mr. Blaine is tho Re
publican party, that is, he is the in
carnation of Republicanism, with its
glaring faults and conspicuous blem
ishes, but with its splendid qualities
as well. He has no equal in that
party now. Tho only man who not
only equalled but who towered
above him in intellectual stature and
moral grandeur lies still in death.
But Roscoe Conkling had neither
the art nor spirit of a Demagogue,
and he had withdrawn from the pol
luted field of politics leaving the
management of affairs to meaner
and less able men.
The fight against Blaine will be
bitter, yet I almost fancy ho will
win. Creed Raymond, attorney of
tho Southern Pacific Railroad and a
delegate to tho National Convention,
declared in a speech at Chicago,
that it would bo treason to nomin
ate any other man than Blaine, and
that it would also be treason to vote
for Cleveland and Thurmnn. That
is an exaggeration ; but as Ameri
can politics is an exaggeration moro
or less, it serves to show tho prevail
Blaine's nomination would be
fatal to tho party, and lead to a re
construction. This Is probablo in
any caso owing to the movement of
the Anglo-American party which
has resolved to become naturalized
citizens and exorcise the influence
which their social position, wealth
and numbers entitle them to. Sev
enty thousand Englishmen and
Scotchmen will cast their voles in
Massachusetts for tho first time at
this election. They aro registering
all oyer the country. It is about
time there was an awakening, when
Swinton's history is ruled out of
public schools in New England, be
cause it speaks of tho sale of indul
gences. Native Americans have
been unable to defend tho birthright
of their children the public schools
against the organized' assaults of
political eccleciasticism in Boston
itself, and tho men of Anglo-Saxon
stock who have stood apart for so
many years, silent spectators of
Yankee decadenco, aro now under
taking tho duties of citizenship,
ono of which is tho maintenance of
secular education atrainst all comers
J and at any hazard.

that will astonish yon. These Goods
have never been offered so cheap
beforo in this Kingdom.
The woods are full of Republican
candidates, Gro3ham, (a strong,
upright, able man), will be defeat
ed by tho Corporations. John Sher
man will probably bo defeated, be
cause tho Corporations favor him
nnd ho is tramming on the Silver
question. General Alger depends
on his lumber-trust money and
army experience. Allison and Har
rison are strong men in their own
sections, but not in the country at
large. These are sample candidates,
but In the background aro several
men who have been forging ahead
of late years, among them McKin
loy, of Ohio, brother of the Hawai
ian Consul-General at San Fran-,
cisco. Should a stampede to Blaine
not come off, a stampedo for Mc
Kinley would not surprise mo. R.
Tho Convention at Chicago mot
nt 10 a. m. It was called to order
by Chairman. Jones. Jones in his
speech emphatically favored protec
tion, and urged that the platform
and candidates 'an embodiment of
this spirit. Thurston's speech was
loudly applauded. His reference to
the leaders of 188-1 was greeted
with great enthusiasm. Ho says
wo cannot be guilty of political dis
obedience to Mr. Blaine's expressed
wish (which means that tho Conven
tion will not nominate Blaine). He
said tho policy of the present ad
ministration was such as to please
every coward. Ho referred to the
Democratic, straddle of tho tariff
question, and civil service reform,
amid laughter and applause. Ho
says the great issue of tne coming
campaign is the tariff. A great
many will rise to trample out for
ever the pernicious doctrine of Free
It looks now as though Blaine
would not be nominated, though
some old political stagers insist
upon it that he must bo," and then
if the nomination is unanimous ho
cannot decline. Thoy say Mr.
Blame declined because he was said
by some to be a "disturbing clo
mont" in the party. If ho is una
nimously nominated that will prove
he is not, and so his declination
will no for nothing.
Gresham is a good deal talked of
as a nominee and McKinley of Ohio
is a very formidable "dark horse."
I know that McKinley does not
want the nomination, but is for
Sherman first, last, and all tho time,
still if ho was, nominated he would
not decline. "Blaine and McKin
ley" is one ticket that is being dis
