THE BARK IVY.
The British bark Ivy, Captain Z.
Caron, came into port tins morning,
181 days from New York, and dock
ed at the old Custom House wharf.
She left Now York, August G, 188S,
but had to put back, having con
siderable head gear carried away
through collision with another ves
sel. After making repairs, again
left New York, August 10th. Up
to 15 South in the Atlantic experi
enced light and variable winds.
There encountered gales of wind
from N. W. to S. W. until off Cape
Horn. Was in several hail and
snowstorms. Off the Cope about
ten days. After leaving the Capo
had pretty fresh westerly winds.
Sighted Easier Island January 8th,
and the island of Hawaii February
8lli. Was off port of Honolulu last
Monday the 11th, and got headed
olf by the wind. Tuesday and
Wednesday was becalmed, but in
the evening of the latter day was
able to make the port. Spoke an
American ship in the Pacific bound
for San Francisco, and was in com
pany with several vessels while off
Cape Horn. The Ivy brings a
cargo of general merchandise con
signed to Castle & Cooke.
The following news items arc
from the Jlilo JiecorJ of February
The Minister of the Interior has
furnished a lot of new street lamps
and the sheriff has had them all
placed in position and our little town
now is fairly lighted ; a thing much
needed. One we notice has been
placed opposite Kukuau street, on
Volcano street, in order lo give
those poor fellows living on that
street a chance to sco some of the
many "pilikias" standing in the
lower part of the street. Does the
Road Hoard ever intend doing any
thing towards opening that street?
Chinese New Year has passed off
very niccl, and if the "Chinese
Devils" are afraid of noise, we think
that the incessant firing of bombs
and' crakers, tho past week, niHst
have driven them all back lo the
"llowery land." A line dinner was
given on Saturday p. in. to the
"haole" and native gentlemen in
town by their Chinese brethern, at
Ah IIo's store.
The change of the leaving of the
Kinau from this port from the un
earthly hour of 4 a. in. to that of
12 m., Mondays and Thursdays
meets, with much satisfaction, from
all those who had business, with tho
Judge Austin leaves on a Circuit
trip through llamakna, Kohala,
Kona and Kan about the last of this'
month. We understand that his
wife and daughter accompany him
on tho trip.
A number of arrests for the smok
ing of opium and the having of
Okolehao in possession, look place
in the outlying districts of this
Island during the week that has
Dreams go to tho contraries. But
this is something a fellow nover can
seem to remember whtn ho iu asleep.
In spite of the popular belief, it
isn't true that tho rain falls aliko on
the just and on the unjust. The
just generally get the most of the
shower, because tho unjust have
cooly walked off with their umbrel
las. Don't fret, John, said Mrs. Wig
gins; you've lost nearly everything
you had in the world, I know, but
you've- still got me. Yes, said John,
with another heartfelt groan, that's
just what I was thinking.
One of our editorial correspond
ents writes: " The beet picking last J
year gave employment, lo many ooys
and girls at Sprockols' factory which
wns opened last year only." Tho
Walsonvillo factory produced last
year 1G10 tons of sugar, which net
ted a profit of about twenty
dollars per Ion. The proposed
reduction in the sugar tariff
amounting to $25 per ton would
have changed this profit into a loss
and of course put a stop to the bu
siness. Tho bounty which the Se
nate offers as an equivalent to tho
reduction in duty will give produc
ers S20 per ton, which is nearly
equivalent to the reduction iu the
lax on foreign sugar. The possible
magnitude of this industry may be
estimated from a comparison be
tween the small native product and
the amount imported. Mr. Spreek
els' small product of 1G10 tons gave
employment to a good many boys
and girls, and yet the product of his
Watsonville mill cuts no figure in
the general swpply. Our yearly im
portations appioach 1,500,000 tons,
and it is the product of this amount
at home which is the prize our legis
lators arc working lor. Whatever
objections there may be to the
bounty system as a rule, it seems
worth while to try it in the present
case. The Call would have preferr
ed to have the duty retained on su
gar until the home industry had de
monstrated its ability to compete
with the foreign product, but tho
desired end may bo attained by the
bounty the Senate bill provides.
There is little present probability
that the two Houses will agree upon
a tariff bill this session, aud until
they do the old tariff rates will be
in operation, S. F. Call, Jan. 21.
SEEDLINGS OF SUGAR CANE.
The sugar cane has been cultivat
ed lor so long a periou mat its na
tive country is unknown. Bentham
states that "we have no authentic
record of any reallv wild station for
the common sugar cane." Further,
according to the Kew Bulletin for
December, tho sugar cane so rarely
produces mature seeds that no one
appears to have ever seen them.
In botanical works the subject is
often mentioned, but apparently
only to rcslate the fact that observ
ers in all countries "have never seen
the seeds of Hie sugar cane." The
authorities at Kew have been work
ing at this subject for several years.
It was felt that if a sugar cane pro
ducing ripe seeds could be found, a
most interesting aud important lino
of enquiry would be opened for im
proving tho baccharino qualities of
the sugar cane iu the kame way a
that so successfully adopted with
regard to the beet. Hitherto the
sugar cane has been reproduced un
der cultivation solely by means of
buds and suckers. The improve
ment of the cane has therefore been
restricted to chance variations oc
curring at wide intervals, and prob
ably escaping altogether the observ
ation of the planter. Now all this is
likely lo be changed. It appears
that at Barbados seedlings of sugar
cane have been successfully raised
by Professor Harrison, and among
these seedlings arc several different
kinds indicating liybridity of a defi
nite sort, such as would be expect
ed to arise from the crossing of dif
ferent varieties. It is to be hoped
this subject will he fully and clearly
followed up as a definite field of in
vestigation. In any ca6C the possi
bility of improving so important and
valuable a plant as the sugar cane
possesses general interest. fS. F..
