Tho Evkning Bulletin fails to
bcc where selfish motives are to be
attributed to people who advocate
an independent republic for 'the
islands, for tho present at least, in
htcad of jumping pell mcll into 'a
scheme which cannot benefit the
masses, while tho present condi
The Bulletin contends that with
but really ono industry, tho people
should maintain a form of govern
ment whose laws will not weaken
that industry. It has not yet been
, shown to any great extent that tho
production of sugar can bo carried
on satisfactorily without contract
labor, and, until it is practically
demonstrated, why should tho pco
plo insist upon nn alliance with a
government whose laws forbid tho
species of semi-slavery which ex
ists here. Once make the labor
irco and before sunriso the next
day, every gan.g of Japanese on a
plantation would bo an organized
labor union. Nor would this state
of affairs bo confined to that nation
ality. In every civilized country
on the globe there is a constant
strugglo between capital and labor.
It is not limited to the English
speaking people, but extends to
every class; it is liko an epidemic,
reaching from one country to
another, and which, at times, needs
tho services of an armed force to
Are the islands in a position to

that would confront tho people
hero in the event of immediate an
nexation to the United States, as
suming that that government would
he in accord with the scheme?
Sugar and rico aro tho industries
from which the people here derive
the greatest percentage of their
revenue; they aro the fountain head
becauso they employ the greatest
number of people, and through
them the merchants on tho other
islands live, and to on to tho end
of the list. Kill those industries
and what have wc ?
It would tako ten years for the
people to figure out a means of
providing for a surplus population
and a cash deficit in the coffers of
fctoc merchant. Docs anyone forget
tho anxiety felt by tho people here
whilo waiting nows of the passage
or defeat of the McKinloy Bill? It
seemed then, that tho fate of tho
country depended upon that one
act of Congress; it was not be
cause it had any provisions which
directly affected tho shoeing of
horses or the building of houses,
it hit sugar, and everyone in
the islands felt tho blow. An
nex the islands to the. United
States and every man here will
ask his neighbor, "Where am I at?"
Tho Bulletin does not wish to im
ply in this article that tho country
will never bo ripe for annexation;
it simply does not believe that this
is tho time for it. Othor industries
than rice and sugar must be mado
articles of exportation, and the pro
duction of staplcB bo a part of tho
businebs of the people. So long as
bugar is king just so long must the
Asiatics rule in tho matter of labor;
incrcafco tho coffco production by
creating laws that will enable peo
ple to cultivate the thousands of
acres of land availablo for coffee,
and wo will havo a different class
of people, we will have diversified
industries, on no ono of which
must the people depend for subsist
ence, and we will have less danger
to fear from tho effects of strikes,
and ono of these, when tho time
camo to harvest cane, would mean
a tremendous loss. Annexation
will come but not this year, let it
be hoped in the interests of every
one. A republican form of govern

There is only ono sensible way
to run a newspaper against a thou

is the latest novelty in cigars This is a per
fectly flat cigar. Tho filler is Havana of a
very high grade and laid in, liko tho sheets of
a book, in the same way an cigars that cost
$150.00 per thousand. The outside appear
ance of the cigar conforms to tho filler, aud is
perfectly flat. Those of our cigar customers
who have sampled them pronounce tho Ha
vana Flats of excellent quality and of unique
and attractive shape. ;
by reason of rhir nupcrior quality and name
are usually sold nt high prices. "We have an,
excellent lino of these cigars direct from Ha
vana. While tho quality of these cigars U at
the top-notch our prices have been scaled down
to bring these popular cigars within the reach
need very little said in their praise, for thoy aro
well known here to every Hinokev. It would
be difficult to get a better cigar for the price
at which Manilas are sold. We allow no one
to undersell us in thin line. Wo compete with
any nationality. Remember that when look
