JAPANESE IN FIJI.
A correppondont of tho Mel
bourne Louder gives a graphio
account of the oxperitnont with
Japaneao labor in the sugar in
dustry of Fiji. It was a comploto
fniluro iiioro, o ght and n half
months sufficing for tho tost. The
description of how tho Japanese
wore received tiud how tboy actod
upon their nrriv.il would, by loiiv
ing out the nnmo of the group, bo
mi?t.ikcn by any phintiition man
ngpr in Hawaii for oxn"rioiicos
only too familinr to hiinsolf.
"NVholossil" shamming of illness
find united demonstration ngainst
doing tho kinds of work they were
wonted to do; und when a consid
nhlo proportion were doing woll
after their work hnd been changed,
firrungemontB were nil upsot by tho
work of professional agitators.
At liiPt the dreadful disease of
botibori struck in among them,
and, notwithstanding tho kindost
care taken of tho pntionts in their
houfios and tho hospital, tho mor
tality bectmo so great that it was
decided to sond nil who survived
buck homo to Japan. Beforo
leaving they wero shrewd enough
to sell nil their possessions to
their Indian coolio co-laborers.
The Indians had contributed a
good deal, according to the nc
count, to the failure of tho Japs
by giving thorn new wrinkles in
boiling the bosses.
Thr re h vo boon various rea
sons why the Jnpnncso labor sup
ply of Hawaii has not been tho
failure that it has proved iu Fiji.
One is that the chief Japanoso
roprcontative here has diploma
tic functions, und in each instance
ho h.is been a mnn of excellent
abilitv and tnct. While guarding
the rights of tho laborers jeal
ously, tho roprosonhtivo of Japan
has never humored their non
sonso. The tronty relations be
twoen tho countries are such as to
clearly define tho rights and pri
vileges of both the employers and
the laborers, and this fact has
doubtless facilitated tho good
offices of the diploiuatto agent.
Besides the chief representative
Japan has provided able and
skilful moiv us inspectors nnd
physicians to the liborers she has
permitted to come hero. A few
days ago tho writer had the pleas
ure of complying with a requost
by a prominent resident of Kohula,
to introduco him to the secretary
of tbo Japanese Legation, nnd his
object was to express an earnest
desire that tho district should
havo its formor Japanese physi
cian restored to it. Ho spoko in
the highest terms of the physician
both as n practitioner and a gen
tleman of good influence
among his countrymen. Difficul
ties still arise with tho Japanese
laborers bore and thero occasion
ally, but many planters rotain
thoir preference for thorn for dif
ferent kinds of work. In the
yeora that Japanese immigration
has boon kotup some "bad lots"
havoonUroJ, but this has lod to
groal r care boing imposed upon
the recruiting agents in selection.
Owing to tho editor's copy
having been mislaid, notico of tho
Hawaiian Annual for 1396 hnB
beon deferred. This publication
has for many yoars beon indis
pensable to residents, while it is
doubtful if any other medium has
conveyed moro information to tho
world at largo that is, whoro it
is likely to do moat good than
tho Annunl that Mr. Thrum's
enterprise has now for twenty-two
years maintained as a looal
institution, The present issuo
contains tho usual compro
honsive body of statistics,
as well as aim mac matter, infor
mation for tourists, oto. There is
mi exhaustive "Record of the Re
bellion," t!io beginning of a his
tory of the pioneer lionpo of 0
Browor & Co. by Junes F. Hun
nowoll of Clmrlostown, Mufs., an
illustrated article on Hawaiian
knpa making by (Jurutur W. T.
Brighaui of Kiunoli.inioha Mil

cational .Syfitotn of Hawaii,"
by ex-Inspector-Goner 1 Atkinson.

are eclectic articles by Professor
Alexander nnd others, from socio
ty records that havo only a limit
ed public ty, bee dos t-ovan.1
short papers nn intoie-ting II i
waiian tipictt. On the whole the
Annual is at loast up to thu ex
cellent standard of pieceding
issues. Pntions who send copies
abroad to those whoso correspond
ence is of valuo to the islands will

"Colonial statesmen and tnon of
wealth," was intended in an ob
servation on Friday, hut the way
it got into tho paper wnp, "Colonial
statesmon of wealth." One
printer tho samo day was foiled
by the pioof- reader in an attempt
to mnko tho editor speak of
frionds "loving" instead of "bor
ing" each other over tho telephone
Minister Philp said to our re
porter that thoro wero in Queonb
land "about 10,000 laborers em
ployed, mostly kanukas, with a
few Malays and Juvuncso," also
that thoro were under 1000 "Jap
anese." This was put into typo
correctly but a compositor, who
knew moro thun Mr. Philp and
tho proof-reader, changed "Java
nese" into "Jupuu"Ho" before the
papor wont to press.
Much encourngomont is given
to future enterprises in the same
lino by tho flattering reception
accorded on nil sides to tho Bul
letin's holiday edition, belttwd ns
it wus by circumstances boyond

PRESIDENT OF VENEZU
ELA AND OTHER
President Crespo of Venez
uela is a tall, heavy man, with
a countenance revealing force
and determination. He is ery
abstemious in his habit and
generally goes to bed at 8
o'clock in the evening. He is
in the habit of summoning his
Ministers to him at sunrise.
He is fond of cattle-ranching,
and owns a large number of
acres not far from the Venezu
elan capital. He is a fine eques
trian and has an unlimited
amount of backbone. He also
knows a good thing when a
friend puts him on to it. If he
lived in Honolulu he would be
one of the first to call at the
store of the Hawaiian Hard
ware Company and examine
some of that fine cutlery just
received by the last Australia.
Beyond question we have now
displayed on our shelves and
in our windows and showcases
the finest lot of cutlery ever
brought to these Islands.
One of those fine carving
sets with ivory or buckhorn
handles in handsome plush
cases would be just the thing
to take the fancy of President
Crespo or his great and good
friend Grover Cleveland. We
have also smaller sets of carv
ers, designed for game and

itiftuuv. Tho S.xona, howovpr,
must have been impressed by this
trait of the crumbling lloinun em
pile, for, though thoy covered up
all traces of tho newly construct
ed baths, thoy early gained a
ropntation for "tubbing" that
will survive our present day. .

onlightoned country may take
ciodit to itself for actually

Thanks to the unstinted water
supply throughout our broud

economizo, ns in European coun
tries and thoir crowded capitals,
in the consumption of this pro
cious olomeut. However tho
early Bottlers of this country may
havo neglected their privileges in
that respect, it cannot bo said of
their descendants, who tako the
uttermost comfort and dolight in
an inheritance which has beon

und Paris nave folt tho benofit,for
Americans abroad so bewailed the

classes oven had little knowledgo
of those "improvements" that
