BOOM IN FLOUR.
Tho arrival of the Alameda
brought news of a very sharp ad
vance in the price of flour which has
had its effect in local commercial
circles by advancing that staple
nearly $1 per barrel. The rise is
due Iq the hcay advance in the
price of wheat, in consequence of
the large prospective short age in the
world's supply, and from the most
reliable ciop repoits it is estimated
that the shrinkage of the present
crop will i each nearly 15.1 per cent.
of last year's supply.
The excitement in the grain ex
changes in San Francisco and the
East continued unabated at the time
of the sailing of the Alameda, and
private cables from Liverpool on
that date (August 25th), report a
further sharp advance.
It is expected that next mail will
bring news of a still further advance
in the price of Hour, and local hold
ers arc therefore not anxious to pait
with present stocks even at the en
hanced rates now ruling. Latest
quotations for leading California
brands arc listed at $5 to $j.10 per
barrel against $.1.10 to $1.1.") by pre
vious mail. The unusually small
stocks in the hands of local dcaleis
tend to intensify the situation.
Em rou Blt.i.p.tin : An editorial
in the P. C. Advertiser of this morn
ing, gives the names of eleven mem
bers of the Legislatuie who voted
to sustain the King's veto. If I
"am correctly infoimed, t!ic"-e eleven
members, voted against the passage
of the Act. If this is ko, to do
otherwise than to susttun the veto
would have been simply lo stultify
themselves, and they oi ght to bo
proud to see their uami as oon
sistant men. Hut what n! out those
who appiovcd the lull ,nd voted
against the veto?
The writer speaks of "an irres
ponsible veto." Is tht writer a
Lawyer? I fear ho is, but would
hope otherwise. Consistency

the Minister of tho Interior illegally
paid the Makiki claims before the

bulldosed tho Government. Now it
is reported that this is all bosh, and
that there was no correspondence at
all between them in reference to
I think tins is tho time to bring
the matter up before the House ad

Emion Dui.t.r,ri ; As a pi office
to my very limited loinarks on this
issue of the Chinese question, 1 de
sire lo say that my only aim is the
good of our country, the speedy set
tlement of this seeming dillleulty
and an ospri"-ion of admiialion to
Mr. Jones, fr hi bold thoughts on
His opinion1- aie based on molal
ity, and the aie right and just.
Mine will be arjsucd fiom the stand
point ol self-pii'bcrvntion, and might
also carry weight.
The question then arises, ) Ibis
an issue of molality or self-preservation.
If of morality, permit me to
present the cake of plenty to Mr.
Jones for his success ; if self-preservation,
allow mo to ask the cham
pion of moials to hire his man and
pass the confectionery this way.
1 was intimately associated with
the Anti-Chinese League, hence I
take great pleasure in refuting all
accusations against this association,
such as being sandlottcrs, dema
gogues or agitators oi unreasona
ble measures concerning the control
of the Chinamen present, and res
triction of those to conic. Every
request of this body of honest and
suffering men was just, was manly,
was noble in its fairness and had the
stamp of equal dealing upon it. If
it had not, 1 for one would have re
signed from it long ago.
Every evil has its cause, and if we
get to the root we are bound to find
a remedy. The laborer accuses the
mechanic, the latter in his turn puts
the blame upon the letailer, the re
tailer upon the wholesaler, he upon
the Planter, and John F. Smith
comes along and blames the Govern
ment for all. It is not the adminis
tration of to-day alone, but it is the
shortsighted, selfish rule of j'cars
ago which I am sorry to say also
holds sway to-day.
We are told continually that the
Chinese question is diflicult. I saj
it is not; and I for one will aver,
that if a man tells me so, he is either
an idiot or a designing man, who
has dollars and cents more at heart
than the welfare of his countr'.
There are hundreds of things
which we ma- do to protect our
selves against the "gentlemen" who
were unpolled to stiip cane. But
we are divided. One half cries for
restriction, the other half dare not
say what they want, and the Gov
ernment stands by and docs nothing.
Here is where the dillleulty lies.
Restriction is very good, but bcfuie
we grapple with the tail ol this
monster, let us be masteis of our
own country and those who live
The licence law fortius latter pur
pose, was introduced. It is simply
nonsense. A registration law would
hare been far moie effective. Suiely
the gieatest champion of Chin.imcn
would not deny the light of the
Government to know who is or who
is not in oih- country. Study Mr
Young nor Mi. Jones himself will re
fute the legitimacy ot the police of
Hawaii to hae at their finger's ends
a knowledge of the existence and
whereabouts of e cry subject in it,
the "rentlemeu ot the canefields in-
Thtee ships come heic in succes
sion, dump a cargo of Chinese
"gentlemen" among us. In a
week after the dumping process we
inquire ol the government olllcials
how many aie employed, how many
unemployed, or wheie they went to,
the answer is. "We don't know."
Is this as it should be? Is this
right? Let it be understood once ior
all we only want what is right. "We
object most strenuously anil hope
rightly, against thousands of drones
roaming purposelessly about the
country and endangering our lives
and property. In this I am sure 1
have the backing of every Chinese
merchant in town, and with this I
voice the sentiments of the poor suf
fering people of Hawaii. Where is
your vagrancy act? Where are your
sanitary legulations? A hue and cry
is raised about the pimple of le
prosy, while the festering cancer of
Chinese vagrancy is threatening to
exterminate us. Our police force is
inadequate lo cope with it. Yet,v
Knowing tins, insieau or enlarging
it, promoting it and putting it on a
basis equal to the time of need
short-sighted selfishness steps in,
looks up to Punchbowl, appropriates
money for that. Ramie ventures and
losses of the past the country has to
pay for, while our very lives, our
very existence is at stake, lor the
want of an appropriation for an effi
cient police force to assert the laws
of the country.
All these tommies are, for want of
space, generalities, but thinking
men will tako meaning out of them.
The law of self-preservation was
never asscilcd more justly, more
fairly and more manly in all the his
tory of the Chinese question than it
has neon in Hawaii. In bpitc of
this we hear men pin porting to have
been elected lo this piebcnt Legisla
ture as champions of tho Inboring
men, calling us Anti-Chinese howl
ers, and even questioning our ehai
ily. First then, let us be chaiitahle,
not onl; to the "gentlemen" coolies,
but to our white mother; lot ub jf
possible Hog a faith into our minds
that our Government will act as
fairly by "the family" as toward
outsiders, tho Chinaman itidttded,
and aboyo all, forsake not tho hope
that at an eaily dato wo will solve
this question ni such a way that tho
uenllcincu coolio fiiend of Mr.
Jones, and the poorer brethren of
Hawaii will agree and shako hands
on this issue. Jko, JF, Smith,

The undet signed, a committee
appointed by a general meeting of
Chinese residents, under instruction,
tender their thanks to your Honor
able Body for the course which you
hau taken to pioteet and preserve
the ri"hts of those of our nation who
have heretofore dwelt here.
We understand the great pres
sure which has been exercised in
ducing a part of the members to
make laws without legard to justice
and forbearance, but we have at all
times looked forward with conli
dence that the sentiment of fairness
which lives in the educated white
men, as well as the natives, would
prevent the passing of any laws to
drive us from the country or to take
from us the right of earning a living
by honest labor.
We desire to call your attention
to the fact, that, in numerous in
stances, through long residence and
fair dealing with our fellow men, we
have built up friendship and kindly
feelings with the citizens who are
not ol our nation: that this has be
come our very home, which we do
not wish to forsake, and do not leave
except for the pin pose of visiting
our parents and relatives in China,
when we return there for a time.
We leave aside the question of
fot bidding fuither immigration of
our countrymen, excepting' that it
will bo cariied out as your wisdom
may direct, without oppiession or

that all legislation concerning us,

Tho following letter was recently
addiessed to one of the Agents of
tho Equitable LiiV Assurance So
Dear Sir: 1 took my first policy
with the Equitable eighteen years
ago, my second fifteen years ago,
and my third to-day.
Here are tho figures:-
FIRST POLICY Issur.i) June 25,
Amount, $20,000. Age, 30
Kind, fifteeu-navnient, ftfteen-
ycar Life Policy Tontine plan.
Annuul Premium, $894. Total
patmciits made in fifteen years,
At the end of the Tontine period,
in 188G, as I still wished assurance,
and did not need the money, I took
the full valuo of my policy in paid
Rusult Pa id' up policy (Pay
able at death, on which I have lo
make no further payments). $41,100
SECOND POLICY Issur.i) Juki:
Amount, $25,000. Kind, same
Are, 35. Annual premium, $955.
Total payments ma le in Jffteen
In this case, the Tontine period
has -just ended, and I have taken
the paid-up value as in the previous
Result Paid-up policy (Pay
able at death; no luither payments
THIRD POLICY Issuld Juke 30,
period, fifteen years.
I have taken this odd amount be
cause it brings my assurance up to
the Society's limit a round $100,
000. I have now $100,000 of assurance
which costs me only $823.78 a year.
I recognize the fact that I could
ha e made a very satisfactory settle
ment with the Equitable on a cash
basis, but as this S 100,000 of assur
ance will supply ready money to my
family and executors at my doath,
and as the cost is so comparatively
small, I prefer the assurance to a
cash settlement. Yours truly,
M. N. C.
The holder of the above policies
would be very unreasonable if he
were not satisfied with these results.
After enjoying for nianv years the
protection fin nished by $,")0,000 of
life assurance at .current rates, he
now (at age 18) f nds himself with
policies aggregating S100,000, for
which he has to pay less than 61 a
year for every 1,000 of assurance.
This is certainly cheap assurance,
and if the best is always the cheap
est, this assurance is doubly valua
ble, lor it is issued by the Equitable
the strongest and most prospeious
company in the business.
Any young man in good health,
whether rich or poor, may profit by
the example bf this assurer; for if
he cannot afford to take such large
policies, he can apply for smaller
