Judge Whiting's decision, con
demning tbo schooner Honriotta,
her c.ngo and appurtenances, dis
poses of all grounds of protest.
s There was not a sointilla of evi
- donee beyond tho entry on the
manifest to prove that the destin
ation of tho vessel whs La Puz,
Mexico, nor was thoro any proof
that tho vessel sought our too hos
jpitab'o const on account of either
stress of weather or lack of pro
visions and water. The deaiBion
.also disposes of the theory that
opium cannot bo smuggled be
cause it is not on tho customs
duty list specifically. It was long
ago decided by the courts of Ha
waii and tho United States that
the importation of a prohibited
article is smuggling. Besides set
ting forth tho law in thisregard.the
Court points out that opium is
technically dutiable undor the
head of drugs, patent medicines,
etc. T'is case may not so cer
tainly as some people suppose
, prevent similar ventures, but it
i will at least mako futuro advon-
' turors in that lino more careful.

drug in this market than prevail

THE QUEENSLAND FLAN.
' There is matter for deep con
sideration by tho planters and
ijoniile of flawnii in the firsthand
information given in this issue re
garding tho syBtom of planting
cano bv smiiU Tinners for central
nulls which is in voguo in Queens
land. Hawaiian planters are
prone to tell tho press that it does
not know tho first thing of what
i talkinc about when it oasays
to , mako any suggestions, either
original or eclectic, for tne solu
tion of the much-vexed labor
question. They also evince im
Itipnco almost to irritability
whon tho idoa of small farms
and central mills is broach
ed - "It is simply out of
the question, utterly impractica
ble," they say; "you cannot get
Tvhito mon to cultivate sugar cano
on thoir own account in thiB
climate." There seems to bo
somo rather solid contradiction
of our planters, howovor, in this
inattor, in tho notuul experience
of tho Queensland augur frutoruity
The Government of Quoonslnntl,
ouo of its mombors informs the
Bulletin, lma soulcd its faith in
tho small farm systom by an out
lay of .$2,500,000, and tho planters
aro eagorly proQbring their ostatos
foi subdivision undor tho
systom to avoid tho porploxities
of tho old somi slavory contract
labor system. Now tho Bulletin
would rospeclfully oflbr a sugges
tion, asking tho planters only for
tho favor of their non-intorforonco,
as it cannot affect them for somo
timo to come, und when tho sug
gestion has boon triod long onough
tho planters may ho tumbling
over each olhor, in rivalry for
piccedenco in accepting an en
tirely new 'situation. Tim sug
gestion is simply that tho Govern
ment select somo nuitublu site in
tho public domain for a colony of
small sugar cane grvers, erec
ting a central mill for grinding
thoir crops and if necessary pro
viding iirigation works for tho
colony. It is doubtful if tho
small farmers would need to
faovoroly tost thoir capacity for
sustaining hard labor in the cane
fields. By tLeir self inter st and
tho facility they would have of
attending closer to details than
the averago cveis.'ers of tho big
plantations, the small farmois
might find it pr.-fit bio to
apportion among themsolves
a largo proportion of tho cheap
labor now in the islands and
which will never leave oxcopting
voluntarily. Thoro is no nood
for prolonging argument in be
half of tho suggestion hero made.
We have the oxnmplo of success
for the system in Qconslimd bo
fore us, and we have a. wideawake
und progressive Government, not
only willing but eager to oucour
ngo iu overy posible way the de
velopment of the country's re
sources agreonblo to the intorests
of western oivilizition.
Zimmorman, tho champion
cyclibt, after a triumphal tour in

ingloriously defeated at Mel

of the race, however, whioh would
mako it unfair to bold that the
result forfeits him the champion
ship. If telephotography proves to bo

Latoly tho gasmen of the United
Kingdom adoptod an improvement
in burners whioh simply blinds

is now announced which promises
to revolutionize tho generation of
steam, buf, as steam is used to
generate electricity the new pro
cess ought to promote instead of
rotard tho uso of electric power.

given a satisfactory trial.

RELOADING OUTFITS, AM

Christmas is over but there
are plenty of ducks and turkeys
flying about the ponds, marsh
es and woods of these islands,
and there are plenty of hunters
who will take advantage of
the numerous holidays between
now and Washington's birth
day to try and get a shot at
them. To insure a good bag
of game on one of these trips,
the hunter must have a good
gun, good ammunition and
good dogs. The Hawaiian
Hardware Company will fit
you out with a gun and am
munition and if you haven't
got a good dog why you can
borrow one. We make a spe
cialty of reloading outfits,
