Sir C. tie Lucy Enn. n dlMin
guislicd Engli.-di pliyieian, recom
mends oiatij;i juice u a cute foi In
yiippe. That it within lenoh of
TIip. Advertiser reads tlio election
returns, so far as they are in, in
favor of the Reform party, giving it
'2o members. We do not read the
returns that way. The boot is on
the other foot. When the return
are complete we shall give a full
statement. We do not see what
good can be done by twisting facts.
What is the matter with the elec
tric light? It is several evenings
since the moon reached a stage to
bo unserviceable during the early
hours, and the electric light has
tailed to take the moon's place.
Saturday and Sunday nights, in par
ticular, artificial light was much
needed, but it wns withheld never
theless. Why so:
It is simply repeating what we
have- said before, and what every
intelligent man knows to be the
truth, to say that this country is in
a fairly prosperous condition, which
is U3iug a moderate expression. The
institution of a comparison between
these islands and almost any other
country that may be named would
justify the application to ourselves
of a stronger term than "fairly pros
perous." Uy comparison it would
appear that the country, as a wholo,
is more than "fairly" piosperous at
the present time.
This satisfactory condition is due
primarily to the unusually high
prices realised for our last sugar'
crop. The extra cash, or n portion
thereof, coming in the first place
into the hands of a lew planters,
has been thrown by them into the
various channels of trade, through
which, diicctly or indirectly, it has
i cached or benefited the whole com
munity. The high prices have also
tended to excite and encourage en
terprise in the way of increased cul
tivation, besides inducing consider
able idle capital to seek investment
in plantation stock that .was pre
viously not in demand. A hopeful
state of feeling has been engendered
in the mind of the community, and
timid capital, lying concealed, has
lieen emboldened to show its head.
There are other causes which have,
in some degree, added to the coun
try's prosperity and helped to put
the community in-good humor. The
gradual establishment of confidence
in governmental stability after the
shaking caused by the revolution of
1887 is a prominent factor. History
hIiows that sudden changes how
ever strong the arguments in their
lavor effected by extra-constitutional
means, have a tendency to
produce, for a time, an unsettled
condition that is attended, more or
less, by n lack of the confidence so
essential to a state of gcneiat pros
perity. Jt is useless to deny that
our revolution, bloodless as it was,
had this elfect. Whatever distrust,
having an unsettling inlluenee, may
have existed under the regular gov
ernment prior to that time, was
greatly increased, though perhaps
somewhat transferred, by the irre
gulnr change, notwithstanding the
desirability of a change.
As an illustration of this point ic
fcrencc might be made to the scheme
of the late lamented S. G. Wilder
to open a large tiact of country on
the island of Hawaii, by a line of
i nil road, which was calculated to
aid greatly in the general prosper
ity. The means to carry the pro
ject into effect was not procurable
at home, but in the world's money
centre, London, there was every
hope of its being obtained, aad, in
fact, was next- to promised, whon
our revolution came along and pro
duced distrust in the minds ot
money lenders there, nnd Iumic.o the
failure of the scheme.
Now, tlic two and a half years'
ntable government which have fol
lowed its Irregular inauguration have
restored and established confidence
at homo and abroad, and this confi
dence, added to confidence in the
prospect of profitable retums.stimii
put idle money into circulation, and
the circulation of money begets
It tiv) hi' here icmiukrd that 'ii
any lice couutrx its gou'riniuut
can never be more than one of
many facloi9 in its prosperity. In
an agricultural country like this
the crops and the values arc the
principal elements. If the crops nre
abundant and the prices remuner
ative we prosper in spite of the
worst Administration; and if, on
tlic otner iinml, our crops arc a
failure or prices are so low as to be
unprofitable, the best Government
possible cannot atone for the mis
fortune, hack of confidence in a
Government may retard enterprise,
and thus be an impediment to the
development of natural resources,
the development of which means
prosperity; but the fullest confi
dence in a government never leads
men into enterprise, nor Induces
tkem to make investments fiom
which they have no hope of profit
able returns. The expectation of
gain is the moving cause. When,
for instance, a man or a company of
men start a sugar plantation on
Kauai, Oahu, or any other island of
the group, they do so becauso they
hope to be pecuniarily benefited
thereby, knowing full well that
whatever four men administer pub
lic affairs their prospects will be but
little affected thereby.
The whole matter may be briefly
put in this form : The country is at
least moderately prosperous; this
condition is mainly due to the satis
factory state of the sugar market,
producing enterprise as well as
cash ; confidence in the stability of
government also having due influ
ence. Let us now look for a moment at
the fuluio. What are our prospects?
They are hopeful aud encouraging.
The price ot our products is a mat
ter beyond our control. The law of
"supply and demand" must regu
late it. But the probability favors
our faith in this regard. That the
countn has vast undeveloped re
sources is a certainty. Uroad acres
of unsurpassed fertility lie unfilled
and waste. Capital aud enterprise
can make them yield in abundance
for the benefit of man. Several
companies have been lately formed,
with the needed capital, and opera
tions actually commenced; and
there is room for an indefinite num
ber of others.
Here on the island of Oahu the
railroad, twelve miles of which arc
already in operation, promises to be
a great developer of resources. It
passes through large tracts" of land
hitherto occupied by a few head of
cattle only, but capable of produc
ing almost anything that soil can
produce. The raihoad will prob
ably be the means of reducing them
to cultivation in the near future.
And there aie greater and more
fertile regions beyond, to which the
Legislature will undoubtedly afford
the railroad company all reasonable
encouragement to extend their
line ; and a railroad to and through
those lauds means their being turn
ed to ue. The Oahu lailway is
destined to be an important factor
in the prosperity of the island.
As to our political condition,
which relates to the government of
the country, this augurs well. W'c
have just passed through a general
election, in which the supporter?
aud the opponents of the Adminis
tration entered into an earnest con
test. Tho contest over, each side
accepts the decision ol the ballot
box. Our revolutionary days are
over, and the people went peace
full' to the polls to express their
will by their ballots. To every
friend and well-wisher of the coun
try the general demeanor of the
people on that day was extremely
gratifying. About three months
from now the new legislature will
meet to deliberate on the affairs of
tho country, and wefeel satisfied that
the result will be an increase, and
not a diminution, ot public confi
