TUESDAY, MARCH 1, 1892.
Among selections in this paper will
be found an account of the present
condition of the rubber industry of
Central America. It appears that
the industry is declining in Unit re
gion, not on account of bad markets
but because the trees have deterior
ated thiough bad management. This
is one of the products long ago cata
logued by those who had knowledge,
as being capable of cultivation in
these islands. It will doubtless come
in time with many of the others, but,
if there is anything in diversified in
dustries, the day has surely arrived
for special efforts to be made for
hurrying up the realization.
Every item in exchanges showing
the benefits of irrigation in other
countries is eagerly snipped on sight
for the Iim.i.iniK. There is a glow
ing statement in this issue of the
great things irrigation has done for
the valley of the K10 Grande. What
is theie said about the advantages of
"the garden of New Mexico" as a
winter rcsoit will apply to Hawaii,
lbe dilfereuce is that the thousands
(locking here to pass the winter are
known only in anticipation. It is a
duty incumbent on all who wish this
country well to help in all ways avail
able the spread of our genial cli
mate's good fame in countries less
At Wilder's Steamship Company's
docks is lo be seen a sample of wood
block pavement, such as is in high
favor in cities elsewhere for street
making. It is certainly a longer
lived covering than Honolulu streets
usually have been given, and when
well laid is very agreeable to drive
over. Fort street requires pavement
to secure any degree of permanence,
and the ro:ul authorities might make
investigation of different matciials
for that purpose. Theie lias been a
gieat deal of money shud iu rebuild
ing that thoioughfarc, but at no time
has a single block of it been con
structed so as to do without repairs
for one year. It is high time to
make a fresh start in slieet-making.
Stop temporary construction except
in repairs, and, beginning at one
end, go clean through the city, mak
ing durable pavements on all thor
oughfares having much trallic.
THE LABOR HEGIRA.
While the depaitme of large num
bers of working people will make a
difteiencc that will be felt in local
irauo, yet under the circumstances
their going is probably less to be de
plored 111 itself than would be their
staying. It is well to see those who
are out of employment, without near
prospect of getting in again, able to
get away to larger fields of industry.
If they stayed doing nothing, iu
meie hope of something turning up,
the chances arc that they ami their
dependents might become a burden
to the community. When the sup
ply of labor exceeds the demand, it
is better for all concerned that the
surplus, especially such of il as have
not resources to make new shifts
for themselves here, should float
away. A large unemployed elcmont
is undesirable in any community, in
one so isolated and small as this es
pecially. The necessity for skilled
mechanics and their families to leave
is deploiuble, but less so than it
would be to see them stay to endure
the pains and wants of idleness.
Nevertheless, the fact that the changed
circumstances of the country involves
the loss of many people of a valua
ble class should stimulate public
spiritcd men of means to c.xci cise their
minds on schemes of productive en
terprise, such us would not only retain
men of stout hearts, strong hands,
and intelligent minds iu the commu
nity, but iu lime induce a reluming
tide of desirable population for build
ing up the commonwealth. There
are lands lying waste capable of be
ing made to bloom with valuable pro
ducts, while men of capa;ity to effect
this result are going round vainly
seeking employment, 'JL'jjcre i u
great variety of raw material aiuiU'
ally troing to rot, which in other coun
tries is constantly worked up into
valuable articles of commerce, ami
only enterprise is wanted here there
is an abundance of capital in reserve
to greatly increase our profitable
exports of industrial productions.
The newspapers, much as they may
be sneered at as unpractical advisers,
are doing their duty faithfully in the
cause of progress. They seize with
avidity on every Item from foreign
journals, which gives an illustration
of wealth being got out of things
little iu themselves. In season and out
of season they are advocating improv
ed methods and extended operations
of productive industry. Every now
and then they have their best reward
In seeing the successful adoption of
public and private improvements
which they hud long recommended to
an apparently apathetic generation.
Let croaking be abolished and enter
prise be made the watchword of the

present appearances may indicate,

HAD TO LEAVE HER CHILDREN.
Dr. Dio Lewis was traveling in the
West, and had come to a ranch
whereon was a shepherd's dog that
the owner would not sell for $500.
She had at the time four young pup
pies. While the visitor was admiring the
little mother and her babies the as
sistant herder rcpoited twenty sheep
missing. Two dogs, each larger than
the little mother, were standing about,
but the herder said neither Tom nor
Dick could find the missing sheep ;
Flora must go.
In vain did the assistant urge that
her feet were sore ; she had been
hard at woi k all day, was nearly worn
out, and must in any case attend to
the wants of her puppies. The mas
ter insisted. The sun was setting,
and there was 110 time to lose.
Flora was called and told lo hunt
for the lost sheep, her master point
ing to the forest on whose edge the
shack was situated. She raised her
head, but seemed loath lo leave her
babies. The master called sharply
to her. She rose, looking tired and
broken hearted, and with head and
tail down trotted wearily off toward
"She'll be right back. She's light
ning on stray sheep." Next morn
ing the doctor rode over to learn
whether Flora had found the strays.
As he alighted from the saddle the
dog returned, driving the sheep.
Flora did not raibe her head or wag
her tail, even when spoken to, but
ciawled to her puppies and lay down
by them. She had been out all night
and, scarcely able to notice her ba
bies, fell asleep.
What a scene if one can but pic
lure it! The vast gloomy forest, and
that little creature with sore foot and
heait, yearning for her puppies,
limping and creeping about in the
wild canyon al through the night,
gathering in the lost sheep. Ameri

Gain iu Assets during six
Extracts from tho "New York
Insukanci; Dkiwrtjiknt ok thi: Statu ok Nr.vv Yokk,
Albany, N. Y., January 19lu, 1892.
Pursuant, lo statute, anil by request of the Company's Board of
Trustees, the undersigned, Superintendent of the Insurance Department
of the State of New York, lias caused an examination of the conditions and
affairs of the New York Life Insurance Company to be made by the Deputy
Superintendent of this department.
THE COMPANY IS SOLVENT.
The most satisfactory result appearing in this report is the conclusion
reached that this great and useful institution of our State, whose business
interests and relations extend and are being advanced in nearly every State
of our Union and in so many of the civilized countries of the world, and
whose policy-holders therein may be named as legion, is beyond all question
solvent, and is the actual owner and possessor of a surplus of available
assets and property exceeding its present liability by the sum of S(J,0.')8,
loG JJ3 accrued upon its general accouut, and SS,(70,5:jU.ol upon
its Tontine accumulation.
Such a result was one most earnestly desired by this depaitment.
Those interested may be assured that this conclusion is accurate and trust
worthy. This examination was made as of Juno 30th, 1891, and on that date
we find that its assets and liabilities were as follows:
