MR. WHITNEY MEXIRE3.
H. M. Whitney aunouueos iu this
morning's Advertiser his retirement
from the Hawaiian Oazettn Com
pany, of which ho has long been
manager. He start ou luo Auverllsoi
M a weekly July 2, 1S3G. Liter lie
tevered his oouueotion with that pa
per, and after serving as Post master
General many years bought a largo
interest about 1835 in tho Hawaiian
Gazetto (weekly) and became its
manager. In 1887 the Daily Gazette
was started with tho advertising and
subscription biuinou of tho Daily
Heratd bought by tho revolutionary
League for that purpoc. A few
months afterward nu amalgamation
of the Advertiser and Gazette took
other hand, it is easy to show that '

ho would desorvo tho thanks of many
capitalists, largo and small, and
many mou with uo capital but their
brain aud brawn, who have gone in
to n new industry in Hawaiian soil
production. Iloforoueo Is had to the
raising of pineapples for export, for
which mauy plantations and plots
have been started in those islands
within the pa3t few years. Vino
apples (raw) wore free under tho
McKiuloy bill. They havo to pay
twenty percent duty under tho now
United Stales tariff. Mr. Hastings
was oillior uot alivo enough or
potent enough to prevent this seri
ous blow to ono of our most pro
minent now industries. Perhaps ho
is to bo credited, however, with tho
reduction from 35 percent to 20
percent iu tho duly ou preserved
plneapph's which tho uow bill gives.
Had Mr. Thurston, tho champion of
guava jelly and other fruit preserves,
been at his post porhaps this blow
to our scores of pineapplo planters
would have been averted. Tho
Advertiser says: "Tho salary of tho
Minister and of tho Chargo in Wash
ington nro grossly inadequate, In
tonts hore of tho valun of mauy
millions are at stake, whilo tho sala
ries paid nro inferior to tho earnings
)f some of tho vegetable gardeuors

follow tho humble occupation of a
showman iu Chicago and San Fran
abandoned for the Advertiser aud
the Advertiser's weekly edition wr.s
supplanted by the Gazetto. Mr.
Whitney started the Hawaiian Ku
okoa in 1861, and in 187ft leased tho
Gazette from tho Government, so
that he has been twlco connected
with the latter papor. Tho Planters'
Monthly has for many years been
edited and published by Mr. Whit
Bey. Mr. Whitney is a very thorough
journalist both as an editor aud a
publisher, and his retirement from
the newspaper business makes a con
spicuous blank therein. Tho Dcllc
tin wishes him mauy more years of
health, prosperity and usefulness.

cico? Or tho reason why ho has
been hanging about Honolulu for
months past, dabbling iu private
onterprires such as tho Volcauo

tive aud purely speculative! Mr.
Thurtton sneered and snorted iu
188(1 nt a plea for more sustcnanco
to tho Washington Legatioti, similar
to tho plea now put forth by his
servile and probably uot disinter

of the family compact with n view
to enhancing their personal benefit
in worldly goarl Tho Advertiser
has a fulsome vulogiiim ou the her
culean work done for Hawaii by Mr
Hastings, "our chargo d'affaires" at
Washington, in tho absence of Mr.
Thurston, Minuter. It givey the
substitute diplomat credit for
"quick, effeetivo and porsistnut
work" which "removed tho peril" of
losing "the adtautagus to us arising
out of tho new tariff." In pacing
it may bo remarked that n slight
description of tin "quick, nffoutivo
and persistent work" of tho newly
discovered great deputy diplomat,
who got all his experience iu the
profession while a lackey of "rotten
royalty," would bo more satisfactory
than the bare wRaorliou above
quotod. It is to bo presumed, how
ever, that it is intended to credit
Mr. Hasting with having wielded
tho influenced uo matter what
which caused the insertion of the
following clause in tho Wilson or
Gorman tariff bill:
Provided, furthor, tlit.t nothing
herein contained shall Ijo so con
strued as to abrogate or in any man
ner impair or affect tho provUiom
ol tbo troaty ol commercial recipro
city concluded between tho Uuitfd
States aud tho King of thu Hawai
ian Islands, January DO, 1875, or lh
rovistons of any act of Congress
eretoforo passed for the execution
of the same.
Now, it is doubtful if this claim
was necessary to protect tho 'advan
tages to us" of thu reciprocity treaty.
There is nothing iu tho bill hicousio
tent with tho terms of tho treaty, so
that tho United States judicial de
liverance making statuto law over
ride treaties if thoy conflict would
aot seem to apply. Thu reasou the
MoKluley bill destroyed tho princi
pal advautago of tho reciprocity
treaty to Hawaii was uot that it
took anything from Hawaii directly,
but that it raised countries uot hav
ing reciprocity treaties with the
United States to the same love! with
Hawaii so far as sugar our chief
staple export was coucerued. That
is, it made raw sugar free of duty to
countries competing iu sugar with
Hawaii, when, with a duty ou sugar
to them aud nouo to Hawaii, our
planters had the great advantage
previously of having tho amount of
duty added to tho prico of Cuba
augar in New York. Wit It the duty
restored under thu bill just passed
as against those computing coun
tries, tho advantage to Hawaii ought
naturally to bo restored without any
special clause or special bill being
needed to that end. iu thiH vimv

Wcdnmhiy, Sept. 6, 1804
The talk about celebrating,
torch-light processions, etc.,
over the action of the United
States in regard to Hawaiian
affairs is sheer nonsense!
What's the use? Better use
your kerosene to jubilate over
the Tariff Bill becoming a law.
It is favorable to the interests
of Hawaii and ample reason
for jollification, barbecuing and
clam baking. Forty percent
on sugar and the planter and
merchant will join the "pro
cesh " and scramble for seats
in the band wagon. Sugar is
not king, it's the money it
brings; the higher the price
the greater the inlluence.
Everyone has suffered during
the past two years through
tariff legislation in the United
States, but the people here
have borne up under the afflic
tion with commendable pride.
A few of the residents have
hunted the dollars until the
Goddess of Liberty on them
has grown thin in the face.
We predict a demand on her
part for some of Mr. Marsdcn's
rules for dieting if the price of
sugar goes up and the Hawai
ian crop is continued on the
free list. At eighty dollars a
ton to-day the price is really
better for the planter than at
a hundred and twenty ten
years ago. The planter has
had experience, he knows how
to produce the largest quantity
at the lowest price ; improve
ments have been made in ma
chinery so that larger percent
ages of juice may be extracted
from the cane to day than it
did then. We anticipate two
very prosperous years for the
planter ami consequently for
everyone else. We expect to
sell more Hendry Breakeis
during the next year than we
have at any period since we
made the planter happy by its
Introduction. We expect to
sell them because there will be
a demand for an article of this
kind for breaking new land.
We expect to sell them be
cause the plantation men re
cognize it as the only reliable
breaking plow on the market
There are other breakers on
sale here, but few in use ; the
" merciful man is merciful to
his beast," or words to that
effect, and for that reason the
manager selects the plow with'
the lightest draught. The
Hendry Breaker is the one.
Every line of business on the
Islands will take a step for
ward, even the barbers will feel
it because the man who wears
a beard for economy's sake to
day will get a shave every
other day and we will sell the
tonsorial artist his implements
of trade. We have a stock of
razors, first quality, and suffi
cient hair clippers to make the
heads of the entire population
look like glistening billiard
balls. We're in it for business
and we have the stock to meet
all demands. We doubt very
much if there is a store in Ho
nolulu that shows such an as
sortment of table cutlery and
silver plated ware as we do
We've always kept a good
supply, but we have had such
calls for it that we have in
creased it. Haviland Ware
has been a staple with us ever
since we started business; our
orders for some of the very
latest shapes and decorations
are being filled in Prance. We
saw a big demand ahead of us
and we took time by the fetlock.
FYom a large and varied stock the undersigned would draw
particular attention to the following :
Comprising California Hay, Barley, Rolled Barley, Bran,
Middlings, Oata, Corn.
s53 In addition to our usual stock of these we are now
currying Washington Bran, Oata and Rolled Barley.
These are each possessed of strong feeding properticH and
are well worth a trial by all interested in 8 took.
