Tho cattle (Wash.) Post-J nielli
gonecr of Pub. 10 has a long inter
view with Dr. John Hrortie of Hono
lulu. It mentions Ins recent exten
sive travels and ny9 ho may settle
permanently on tho Sound. The
doctor discusses the 9Ut;ar situation
here, saying, as reported, that tho
planters cannot raise sugar at SI2 a
ton, and that he supposes not more
than a fifth of the plantations will
pay expenses this jear.
Remarking on the great prosperity
of the whaling days, when hundreds
of sailors would spend inn few weeks
their whole season's earnings, Dr.
Hrodio said, "Nearly everyone has n
silk dress or two bought with the
money .so abundant then, and some
have whole pieces of satin and oilier
line fabrics not yet made up." Ik
spoke of the ehanaes in the condi
tions of the native people, their Hook
ing to the towns to live, aversion to
ngi cultural labor, and their letting
of their lands to Uliiiinincn.
In an interview with the Seatlic
Press of March 111, tho doctor is re
ported as saying: "Puget Sound
shippers will find no market for
lumber in Honolulu, in a few months,
unless the islands are admitted to
the United States. Almost every
body on the island is in favor of lie-
coming a part of the United Slates.
Five or six years ago it would have
been no trouble whatever for Hawaii
to secure admission to the United
States, but now this nation scetus to
want to enjoy the product of her
wealth without having llie expense of
piotccling the Islands. Money .was
very plentiful in Honolulu when 1
tlrst went there twelve years ago,
and it is plenty yet, but it will not bo
long. Man' merchants and coin

FREE VS. CONTRACT LABOR.
EiiiTon Bulletin :
The Clarence River District, N. S.
Wales, is the great stronghold of co
operative sugar industry in Australia.
In 1872 the system was started by
the Colonial Sugar and Refining
Company (whose headquarters is in
Sydney) and the farmeis on the
Clarence, in this way: The sugar
company supplied seed cane from
the Mauritius and oilier sugar-pio-duciug
countries to all farmers who
wished to try the experiment with a
reasonable acreage of their land.
The company agreeing to cut and
take tho green cane off their lands at
ten shillings per ton, with no inter
mediary charges, and advance money
for labor up to six pounds per acre
to any farmer needing such assist
ance. The sum advanced would of
Ciiurse be deducted out of proceeds
of the crop of green cine (no inter
est nor commission charged).
When about four thousand acres
was set out in cauc the sugar com
pany commenced to build their mills,
three in number Southgate, Chats
worth and Cows' Creek. The mills
were about fifty miles apart, centially
situated in the sugar bells, with ma
chinery of the latest improvements
regai dless of cost. The company
owns no sugar lands of its own ex
cept the mill sites. As years rolled
on the enterprise met with great suc
cess and continues to spread. No
Asiatic or contract laborer ever woi li
ed a day on the Clarence River cane
fields. 1 be while colonials swim to
have been able to stand field work.
While further noilh, in the Colony of
Queensland, South Sea Islands labor
was used by other sugar companies,
the industry failed and plantations
were descited, although the land is
very fertile, and, where the planta
tions were slatted, there is plenty of
water. So much for free labor.

THE ELECTION LAW.
I have Just brcli reading the Ga
zette of January Dili, in which there
appeared a communicated article on
the ISlcclion Law. The writer cays
he "cannot see that the new system
is any improvement in the outer dls
tiicls over tho old," a remark that
reflects a wonderful amount of cicdit
on the intellectual calibre of the
wiilcrof the at tide. Anyone who
cannot sec the diffcteuce between a
just law and the stupid manipula
tions of it, ought to be candid enough
to confess himself one of the people
"who will not read insttuctions or
listen" and consequently tiro ell
dislratichised. The secret ballot is
the essential principle of the law,
and theie can be no good reasons
why it should not bo as operative in
this country as elsewlieie ll has
ceitainly come to stay, unless the
legislation of Hawaii is going to
progress backwards. The "boss"
system of electioneering has bad its
little day iu these islands, and tl
is to hu hoped that it has been for
ever buried out of sight and out
of mind. Instead of squealing
because the system now adopted has
not woiked with complete satisfac
tion, on first trial, it seems to me
more rea-onalile to enquire into the
causes of any failures that may have
marked the first year s experience ol
the secicl ballot system than lo rush
to the conclusion that the new system
is no better than the old." First
and foremost among the causes that
have ootitiibutod their quota of an
noyance to ollicials as well as to
electors, is tho half-caste English
with winch every page of the law. is
muddled. Second, among said
causes is the gross stupidity of
ollicials themselves, some of whom
aie absolutely incapable of carrying
out law, inslructiiM., or advice, other
wise than to be v roug every time.
Taking the slnicnrnts of fact in the
arliclo'I rofci i" is correct, I beg
to ask what tunic the sun have in
spectors of oleotit.t. to do with vole is'
intentions, motive-, or otherwise,
when the law reqi es of them only
to count ballots? I could cite many
more instances ot what may be char
acterized as blank idiocy in the pro
ceedings of election olllcers. Bui it I
is not with the olllcers that I piopose
to deal at present. It is with the
source of authority that most of the
humbugging of the past election ori
ginated. And if the new system will
tiring about such a happy result as
that voters who do not kimw enough
lo distinguish the right hand from
the left are self-disfranchised, thee
may lie a chance leit lor the moie
intelligent class of people to get re
presentatives into the legislature who
are far enough advanced in scholar
ship to count two. The legislature
that labored in 1890 and brought
forth the Election Law and the Road
Board Law, twin monsters of half
caste English, does not appear lo
have mastered so much ot arithme
tic and grammar as to know the dif
feronco between "list" and "lists,"
"register" and "registers," or be
lween "llie names of all persons"
siuil "the names of candidates." The
law, pul into the hands of Inspectors
of Election to bo carried out in the
face of a possible lino of S 1000,
proscribes this form ot oath to be ad
minister! d to a-challenged voter (or
Nobles: "You do solemnly that you
will true answer make to all such
questions as shall bo put to you
touching your right to vole for Noble
at the present election. " Solemnly
what? You do solemnly deny?
You do solemnly refuse? You do
solemnly pray? Again, what kind
of questions are "such" questions?
1 .should lliiuk when a man answers
all questions thai he oughl to bo
through the catechism. And yet
again, I heard of Notley, Neumann.
and possibly ol inher N 's,. but I
was not aware that Noble was a can
didate. Il may perhaps bo "Nobles"
thai is meant ; but "law i law," and
if the law doosii'l mean exactly what
it says, what the do'il does it mean?
Th io is one good featuio in the
piosenl Election Law that is woithy
of at leasl honorable mention, name
ly, llie conspicuous absence of o.ilh.
If Inspectois were requiied lo make
oath lo the laitbful performance of
their duties, where would they find
themselves on a charge of willul
neglect to go and hunt up that "bal
lot olllcer hereinatter provided for?"
The "ballot olllcer" is doubtless ono
of the many literary bulls waiting to
lie killed by amendments to be "here
inafter provided," after which, tho
Election Law will lie as nearly per
fect as law need be. Hawaii.
