Editou Bulletin: A great deal
baa been said about the stagnation
that now exists in almost all kinds
of trade throughout tlfesc islands,
and many rsasons have been given
through" tlio press as to the causes
of such depression, as well as sug
gestions for icmcriying so unsatis
factory a stato of affairs.
The subject is a wide one, and,
to do it the justice it deserves, would
occupy more time than is at my dis
posal at prcscpt.
. It is nota dilllcult thing for corres
pondents to write in glowingtcrms,lcl
Hug us that, if capital wcro used to
buy up waste lands, import labor,
and plant tobacco, coffee and other
products, an era. of great prosperity
would again dawn on these islands.
The fact of the matter is, vi e have,
until a comparatively recent time,
been recklessly over-trading. At a
time when the price of sugar, our
staple product, was neaily double
its present value, we went too fast.
Vast numbers of small traders, pos
sessing little or no capital, sprang
into existence during that period of
inflation. The value of money was
under-estimated and in consequence,
spent like water. With a large pro
portion of the community, what are
now looked upon as the veriest lux
uries, were then considered as ne
cessaries of life. Such a state of
things could not -possibly in any
country be of a very permanent na
ture. The diminished price of sugar
simply hastened the reaction that
The capitalists, and there arc
plenty light here in Honolulu, are
not, as many would have us believe,
a lot of selfish imbeciles, but shrewd
business men, and, whatever may
be said to the contrary, would not
hesitate to spend money in these Isl
ands if they could but see any rea
sonable chance of adequate returns.
Instead of raving about the intro
duction of capital, opening up
doubtful ventures, let us look nearer
home, and economise in small
Tradesmen especially of the
smaller class already alluded to com
plain that they arc doing but little
bU3infss. The reason is not hard
to find. There are too many of
them. Shut up one half of the diy
goods stores, grocers, saloons and
others, and the remainder would
have no reason to complain of hard
times and slack business.
The outlook for our super-abun
danco "of small tradesmen i9 not a
bright onetliere being but little in
dication at present of any change
calculated to improve their condi
tion. The credit system, inaugurated
no doubt in times of greater pros
per', exerts a must baneful influ
ence on trade. The trader, in his
anxiety for business, offeis almost
any terms to customers, in order to
sell his goods, resulting, as a natural
consequence, in bad feeling, bad
debts, and for himself,
a very pio-
Editor Bulletin: An article
which appeared in your Tuesday's
issue under the head of "A Fore

compels me to ask you for space

aborigines pretty roughly, as if he

In the first two paragraphs of his
article I fail to notice anything of
much account, and consequently I
have no word to say in favor or the
But towards the end of tho next
paragraph I find that ho has made
a new discovery, which he applied
as an Unfailing sign of his idle pro
phecy of tho near end of tho Ha
waiian race. Ho 6ays that tho
tnelen and songs wo are singing in
public, aro but our Wailing for our
own expiration before long. Now,
, what can bo more superstitious than
this? When a native sees a dog
digging a hole or a hen crowing, he
will say that it is an omen of a seri
ous accident that will shortly hap
pen to the owner of such dog or
ben, which he believes to bo true by
custom. But when he tells this to
. a white man or a pack of sojourners,
a native spectator standing by will
see with surprise what he did not
nor will expect to eec. That the
pack of sojourners will immedi
ately put on a now face, viewing
their addresser with cross eyes from
every direction, with a monkeyish
r grin on everyone's disflguied iace
' of scorn. But this cannot even
bold a candle to "A Sojourner's"
omen of omens. While the nativc'B
.omen applies to individuals, "A
Sojourner's' applies to a whole
race, which, be says, the world has
no further, use of,
Iquito agree with him that there
should bo no favor of race. And

that the native should have the first

But this is quite a puzzio to mu to.
understand, what "A Sojourner"
means by saying that tho world has
no further use of us, yet ho uives us
the first preference to a public office.
His jealousy of tho native Ha
waiian raco was not appeased by
only calling us darkskins, but went
on and put us down as "a very
Now both in biblical and political
terms, such an asseition is quite out
of place. Knees may differ in the
one being civilized and the other
uncivilized, the one a Christian the
other heathen, etc. Hut railing

the other very Inferior to other
raecs,'is quite contraiy to the law of
nature and of the civilized world,
that "God hath created all men
alike,1' that is, not one is superior
to the other, and only inferior to
angels, as tho Psalmist says, "Thou
hast put hiin lower than the angels."
Only this and nothing moro.
In my opinion the landowner
should have the sole control of bis
own affairs, let him be white or
darkskin. If a dozen sojourners
came to a kind-hearted darkskin,
who received them most heartily
into his home and gave them leave
to seek fortune on his land by culti
vating or by any other honest means,
do you think il is honest and right
that this kind hearted native should
be turned out of his land or bonded
by these envious sojourners, on the
ground that he, being only one, can
not rule over many, and also that he
is inferior to them? I do not hesi

Again if CO, 000 sojourners can
not approve the management of
affairs of this country, and cannot
stand being overruled by 20,000 of

the dust and go?

ment of Government affairs is in
the hands of white skins under the
banner of Reform, I do not see any
occasion for such accusations and
unjust charges against the native

FIRE ON KING STREET.
An alarm of fire was rung about
half-past 10 o'clock Wednesday
morning, for a fire in a two story
house on the Ewa side of Kawaia
hao female Seminary, owned by Mrs.
D. Leleo Kinimaka. The fire was
started by a little four-year-old bon
of Mrs. Kininiaka's who was up
stairs in a bedroom playing with
matches. The fire department was
quickly on the spot, Engine Co. No.
2 getting on first water. The upper
story was completely burned, while
the lower one was badly scorclied
and will have to be rebuilt to bo of
ELECTRICALLY REFINED SUGAR.
Some three years since it was
known to a few London merchants
and others that a pioccss had been
perfected in the United States for
refining sugar by means of electri
city. The inventor was 1'iofcssor
Friend of New York. Professor
Friend jealously kept his seciet to
himself acquainting no one whatever
with the modus operandi. If we
are rightly informed Professor
Friend died before the machinery
was completed. By careful and
protracted study the details of its
workings were eventually mastered,
the missing links discovered, and
the process finally restored to the
world. Such in brief is the history
of tho invention, according to in
formation received by P. H. Davis,
of "The Confectioners' Union," 171
Queen victoria street, London, at
whose ofllces we recently inspected
some samples of the sugar refined
by tho electrical process of Profes
sor Friend. '.These samples have
just arrived, and are said to be the
first that have been received in this
country as produced by tho new
machinery. There are in ail seven
samples, Nos. 1 and 2 being a finely
powdered sugar suitable for frost
ing cakes, Nos. 3 and 4 arc laiger
crystals suitable for castor sugar
and for coffee. Nos. 5 and C arc
small agglomerations of tho crystals
in two different sizes, which may be
compaicd in appearance to ordinary
hailstones. No. 7 is simply a sam
ple of tho unsorted products taken
during a temporary mechanical
breakdown in tho apparatus. It is
stated that the process is carried on
in a building five stories high in
New York city. On the top floor
tho raw sugar is fed into the first
machine, and it passes thence down
ward to tho lowest floor, where,
witbout having been seen or hand
led, it is delivered iu a icfined state.
The time occupied in the passage of
t)ie sugar from its entry to its exit
is four hours, and it is said that a
handful of pebbles thrown in the
empty apparatus would take twenty
minutes to pass through it, 6o tor
tuous arc the passages which have
to be traversed. Tho process is
.continuous, and so long as tho raw
sugar is fed in at the top so long
will refined sugar bo deliveicd at
tho bottom. The New Yoik works
are only experimental, but they are
on a sufficiently largo scale to have
proved tho invention, and extensive
works aio now being erected in
Brooklyn for commercially working
the invention. Of the details of tho
apparatus or of tho electrical ar
rangements Mr. Davis lias no par
ticular whatever. London Times.
