It is with pleasure that we announce
the resumption ol the "Diversified
Industries" series of articles by a
special contributor. The next one is
on ""The Guava" and will appear to
morrow. "Conlhigration Jones" is quite
satirical on tropical fruits. There is
a lesson for us lurking in his humor
ous screed, however, which is that if
wo are going to invite tourists we
ought to have all possible varieties
of tropical fruits available on de
mand, to gratify their curiosity if
nothing else. By having fruits put
in preserved forms of kinds which
are delicious that way although not
particularly enticing otherwise, we
may thiough the palates of visitors
promote a prolitahlu market for new
domestic products abroad.
There is again talk of a eontiibu
tion from the Hntisli Government for
a cable fiom Vancouver to Japan,
probably in the Aleutian Inlands. If
a cahlo were laid from Sim Francisco
to Hawaii there would probably be
no more talk of the northern route.
Hawuii would be a half-way station
of a giand Pacific system reaching
Japan, China, the East Indies and
Australasia. Our Government should
help us to anticipate this British pro
ject. As it is to the United States that
Hawaii is looking for a cable, we aie
glad to see an item like the above iu
the Han Francisco Bulletin. It shows
that some people over there are alive
lo the cable situation.
A correspondent raises objections
to the scheme of advertising the is
lands by the Volcano House Co. and
the OiiUu Ruilwyy & Laud Co. His
points seem to be well taken. Per
haps the scheme may he uWlo large
enough to embrace our correspond
ent's suggestions hi addition to tho
original proposals of the combination
in question. The idea of unking tho
"Paiadise of the Pacific" a leading
feature of the scheme, with illustra
tions produced at home, is a. capital
one. If carried out tho local print-
ing olllees nud newspapers would give
our Hawaiian engraver no small
amount of patronage to assist in his
HOLD OH TO T.
The Bulletin believes in the re
tention of the present election law,
with such amendments as its working
thus tar bus dictated. It might be
greatly simplified in the mutter of
Inspectors of Election, much of
whose duties could be advantage
ously divided amongst permanent
olllcials of the Government. Electors
who have once voted should not at
succeeding elections bo put to the
trouble of attending a court of re
gistration. Why cannot some ex
isting olllcials he required to prepare
lists of voters for Nobles and Repre
sentatives from the list hist previous
ly used, to he posted up in public
places not later than the first of each
year. Then fix a time for having
such lists corrected hy the adding of
names of persons who have since the
last occasion become qualified to
vote, and the striking off of names
of those who have left the district or
become disqualified. Another amend
ment required is in regard to the
foim of the ballot. There are some
provisions in the present law which
do not belong to the adopted mode
of voting at all, and these only cieatc
confusion and unnecessary regula
tions. A ballot can surely be de
vised which, while preserving the
element of secrecy, would be plain
enough for all but persons of such
low mental capacity that their dis
franchisement would be a clear na
LAND WANTED TO DEVELOP.
While the most that can be done
should be done iu settling public
lands with small homesteads, there
is a class willing to be independent
producers on a larger scale who
should have some consideration.
That is, men of experience in special
lines of agriculture who are prepared
to operate lands with some little
capital, but who cannot gel a suffi
cient area in one block for their pur
poses. One such has been met lately
who lias had much experience in cof
fee growing in Ceylon, Colombo and
other places. He is in receipt of a
request by mail from a brother
abroad who has had similar experi
ence, to seek out a suitable block of
100 acres of coffee land, whereon to
start a plantation. The man now
here says it would not be worth while
investing anything in a coffee planta
tion with any less land than that
mentioned. Having so far failed to
get what he wants, he takes such
agricultuial employment as offers
him on a sugar plantation, hoping
that the tuin of events will bring the
desired opportunity. It would be
well if men of experience in tiopical
agriculture could receive the re
quired amount of encouragement for
engaging in coffee or other culture
here, on a scale a little larger than
that of tho oidinary homesteader but
yet not so large as to menace the
homestead policy. Coffee farms of
moderate size well conducted would
indeed be exceedingly useful to have
scattered here and there, as they
would furnish examples of proper
mode of cultivation to the inexperi
enced small settlers.
EMICRANTS TO HAWAII DELAYED.
Over 1300 intending emigrants for
Hawaii natives of Vamaguchi, Hi
loshimaand Kiimamolo have been
raised for the purpose of being sent
lo Hawaii, and they were to leave on
the 20th iust., but upon the uibttuc
tiiuiH of the authorities their depart
ure lias been delayed in consequence
of the smallpox epidemic now pre
vailing here. The quarantine regula
tions prescribed by the Hawaiian
authorities are such, they say, that
upon the discovery of a case the ves
sel would bequauintincd for IH days,
and should a fresh case present it
self during that time a further deten
tion of 18 days would bo imposed,
the pinliibilion to land the passen

Extracts from the "New York
lew York Life Insurance So,
Insurance Depakt.mi:nt of the State of New York,
Albany, N. Y., January 19th, 1892.
Pursuant to statute, and by request of the Company's Board of
Trustees, Ihe undersigned, Superintendent of the Insurance Department
of tlie State of New York, has 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 aud useful institution of our State, whoso business
interests and relations extend and are being advanced in nearly every State
of our Union and in so many of the civilized couiitii.es 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 SG.0ii8,
i:JG liH accrued upon its general account, and 8,070,539 SO upon
its Tontine accumulation.
Such a result was one most earnestly desired by this department.
Those interested may be assured that this conclusion is accurate and trust
worthy. This examination was made as of June 30th, 1891, and on that dale
we find that its assets and liabilities were as follows :
Appraised value of real estate owned by the Company, hb
per Exhibit 1 $13,225,038 59
Loans on bond and mortgage (lirst lien&) on leal estate,
as per Exhibit 2 20,825,483 (34.
