THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS.
A Journalist Tolls About tho Trado
of that Country.
Tiioonia, Wellington, Dally Lodgot,
Norman Logan of tho Sandwich
lalancla is a gu st at tho Fifo hotel.
Ho has boon Tor sown yours in tho
Sandwich Tsl.imH for about half of
which timo ho was in Honolulu and
tho remainder at lvonlnkokua Bay,
Konlnkokun meaning "the road of
tho god." Nearly all tho time ho has
boon in nowHpnnor work, a part of
tho timo with his brother, who is
still editor of tho Honolulu Ditm.i.-
In a conversation last evening Air.
Logan told much of tho resomcesof
Sugar, ho says, is tho staple pto
dnct of tho islands. The export
trade will average about $10,000,000
yearly, being entirely with Sail Fran
cisco. This nearly all goes through
Honolulu. Shipments are now made
also through Hilo, Mahukona and
Kahului. "There is no use shipping
anywhero else," said Mr. Logan.
"Why? Well, previous to tho IMo-
Kinloy bill, a treaty existed with the
United States by which all the sugars
of tho Hawaiian Islands woie ad
mitted free, thus giving us an ad
vantage. Thoro aio two rofmeiies
there Spieekelh' and the American.
Now, tho people of tho islands have
trouble, because they have lost
their advantages, and about 2 cents
a pound is lost to tho sugar men.
Up to tho time tho McKinloy bill
camo into operation, tho Hawaiian
sugars woro bhipped at Honolulu for
San Francisco at about 4K) per ton.
Now, howovor, they must m11 their
sugars at about SCO per ton, and this
causes tho whole people to sulfur, for
the sugar industry is tho voiy iibor
of their commercial life.
"If tho people of Honolulu could
ship hero it would bo better all
round. The lumber ships to tho
Sound very often come in ballast.
If they ballast in sugar instead of
stones it would certainly bo more
profitable I have always thought
thoro should bo more business with
this country. San Francisco is the
nearest port and has that advantage
over you. If you had a refinery you
would have to cut into Spreckels to
got the business.
"Nearly ovory foot of tho lumber
wo uso is from the Sound. Tho
house I lived in grew soiuowhuto on
the Sound. Tho lumber shipped is
principal of building materials,
chiefly boards. Heavy houses aro
not needed. Just enough scantlings
are used tc keep them together.
The coal we use is ehioily from Aus
tralia, though some of it comes fioin
"Tho value of the epoits fiom
the Hawaiian islands for ton years
past (1882-IS02), amounted to $102,-175,052.0-1,
while the imports show a
valuation of .?53,2G9,7r0.22, a total
business of $155,715, 102.7C. Tn 1881,
ten years back, tho Hawaiian Hag
floated over only i).!38 tons of ship
ping; tho returns of Collector Cleg
horn show that December 31, 1801,
tho Hawaiian ensign covered over
13,129 tons, without an addition, in
tho near future, of nearly 1000 tons
moro in newly-built vessels, and
which will be added during lsi)2.
Tho number of steaineis in 1881 was
but nine; in 1891 tho number is
twenty-four, and of this latter
twonty-two ply in Hawaiian waters.
During tho past j'oar 221 American,
thirty-four British, eleven Gorman,
five Japanese and olovon from vari
ous countries, vessels representing a
total of 29(5,078 tons, hao been
entered at the various customs dis
tricts in the kingdom. This, aside
from tho twenty-live vessels lopre
feonting 28,077 tons tonnage which
sailed under Hawaiian colois and
"The passenger traillc ro potted for
the year shows that 1981 people
passod in transit, in vessels calling
nt this port, and that a total of 2139
travelors and 7339 immigrant!, a
grand total of 9972 souls, arrived.
Of this latter number i'.M55 lemain,
added to the population,
"Tho report of Collector Cloghorn,
collector-general of customs of tho
Hawaiian Kingdom, shows that the
United States received .,291,287.57
of our trade, or 71.10 percent of our
entire business abroad. This should
show that wo are not ungrateful for
past kindness and that wo do a little
purchasing in tho course of a year.
The total value of tho imports for
tho year amounted to 57,139,182.(55.
Noxt to tho United States comes, in
tho following order, the nations
patronized during 1891, viz.: Gioat
Britain, Germany, China, Japan,
Australia, British Columbia and
Mr. Logan says that tho nalivo
people do not ongago in business,
though tho children go to English
schools and learn readily. They aro
mixing with tho whites of all nn
tious. Tluy aro insulted greatly if
they aro called black people. IJo
contly tho natives of a mission re
fused to accopt a now preacher be
cause ho was of tho colored race.
Mr. Logan represents hero the
Paradise of tho Pacific, a paper pub
lished at Honolulu to adveitisotho
Captain Porriman Tolls What Ho
Knows About tho Place.
Tho following is an Associated
L'ross despatch. Captain I'orriman
is well known in Honolulu, as not
long ago trading hero in tho barkou
tino Discovery. From his account
it would appear that Hawaii surren
dered the island to tho United
San Fianeiseo, Cal
Aug. t. Ac
cording to tho records of tho State
Dopaittnent tho United States has
title to Johnston Island through
Captain 1?. I'eirinian, formally yeais
master of a vessel sailing out of this
poit, but now rotiied from active
service. In an interview regatding
tho .'innovation of tho island by the
British Government Capl. Porriman
"This is not tho first time that ad
verso possession has been had of the
island, the Hawaiian Government
once claiming possession of it, but
after a brief diplomatic conespond
onco tho claim was withdrawn, and
I think tho outcome will bo tho
same in tho piesent instance.
"Kegai ding tho claim of Captain
l'aikor to the island, tho facts of the
cae aio the-o:
"In 1807 the British frigate Corn
wallis, Captain Johnston in com
mand, pas-od it, but none of tho
frigate's crew landed and took pos
session. "The commander of the frigate
jotted down on his chart tho ap
proximate position of tho island and
called it after his essol, but tho
name was afterward changed to that
of himself. In 1852 Captain William
II. Parker, at that time in command
of the brig Beindeor, sighted the
island while on a trading expedition
to tho South Sea Islands.
"Ho jotted down its latitude and
longitude, and some four yours after
ward, while in San Francisco, ho
..nmr. tn H,i nnti.diiainii J lmt lh '
camo to tho conclusion Unit tlio
.bland would prove valuable, as ho
had noticed it was covered with
, , ,. i . . ... i ...!
guano. Ho claimed ho had taken
possession, and in December 1870
bold a livo-eighths interest in tho
island to parties who subsequently
formed tho Pacific? Guano Company.
"This company chartorod tho
schooner Palestine, of which I was
master, and dispatched her to the
island to bring back a cargo. "When
I landed thoro was no evidence that
any whito man had put his foot
thoro before me.
''I raised tho American, ilag and
erected crosses, on which was paint
ed a notice that I had taken posses
sion of Johnston Island for tho
owners of tho schooner Palestine,
'in the namo of the United States,
James "Buchanan, President, and
Lewis Cass, Secretary of State.'
"Parker did not land on tho island
at all during that trip, though ho
was on board the vessel. Wo brought
back a quantity of guano on that
trip and bold it horo. Since llia't
timo lhaoinado three other trips
to Johnston Tslanil.
"The last tiip was in tho Golden
Fleeco about ten year.-, ago. On that
occasion I brought back 200 tons of
guano and disposed of tho cargo in
"After 1113' vi on tho Palestine,
Sam Allen, now residing in Hono
lulu, visited tho place, and knocking
down tho ciosses I had erected, took
possession in tho name of tho Ha
"After a brief diplomatic conos
pondonco, howovor, tho latter gov
ernment relinquished its claim. Tho
island might bo of uso to tho United
States as a coaling station.
"The harbor is not a good ono, in
that it is a roadstead which, during
two or three months in tho year, is
open to tho winds from tho south
west. Ono of tho island's great
drawbacks is the lack of water.
"Below tho guano is sand and
then a rock foundation hard as Hint.
