THE SUGAR CROP.
In tho Planters' Monthly for
March, Prof. AViu. Mnxuoll, Dir
ector of tho Burcnn and Experi
mental Station of tho Hawaiian
Sugnr Plnntorfl' Association, givos
tho following ofticial statement of
tho sugnr crop of tho Hawaiian
Inlands as sot forth by tho total
r ult of flu manufacturing sea
son of 1831-95: "TLo Hawaiian
crop ib on an avorngo eighteen
months in growth, and is thus
biennial, when compared with the
annual ciops of Louisiana and
boet BUgar countries, which occu
py tho ground only uino months.
Tho results are ghon as follows:
''Number of acres of
cauo manufactured.. 47,399-V
"Number of tons (2000
"Number of pounds of
sugar nude per acre. 0,-172."
Upon which tho editor of tho
Monthly remarks: "The Custom
House reports have heretofore
formed tho basis for tho statomont
of tho sugar yield published, at
tho close of each calendar year.
These reports, howovor, only
show tho number of pounds of
sugar exported, and do not
take into account tho homo
consumption. For tho period
given in tho Experiment Station
October 1, 1891, to Sopt. 30,
1895 tho Custom Hon so report of
exports is as follows:
October 1 to December 31, 1891,
21,582,901 lbs.; Jnuunrv 1 to
March 81, 1895, 109,509,981 lbs.;
April I to Juno 30, 1895, 130,290,
893 lbs.; July 1 to Sopt. 30, 1895,
2591.53-1 lbs. Total for twelve
months, 289,978,282 lbs.
"Thib shows a total of 1-14,909
tons of sugar exported as against
a total of 153.-119J tons of sugar
manufactured, a dilforonco of
8.451H tons, or 10,901,000
pounds. .Domestic consumption
must bo charged with part of this
excess, perhaps ono-quartor of it.
The remainder may bo accounted
for by tho custom which prevails
on spmo plantations of including
the weight of tho bags as woll as
that of sugar when shipped from
tho factory to Houolulu."
If, as has been proposed, tho
plantations wore taxed on their
actual output, the past year's crop
would yield S92.051, almost ex
actly tho samo amount that in
dividuals pay in direct taxes on
proporty, according to tho report
of tho Miuister of Finance, tho
amount paid by corporations be
ing S72.000 and odd. Tho matter
of tuxation as related to tho pro
duction of tho couutry's chief
staplo cannot, however, bo intel
ligently discussed so long as tho
Government, with tho connivance
of tho pooplo's roprosontativos,
refuse to give tho necessary in
formation to tho public.

Tho whito barbers of tho city
havo finally como to tho conclu
sion that they must do something
to Btop tho loss of trado conse
quent on Japaneso competition or
ulso close up their shops.
They appointed a committee to
tnko tho matter in hand and do
viso somo means to bettor trado.
This will probably take tho form
of a petition to tho Legislature
asking that tho licenses of barber
shops be raised to a higher figure.
Tho sum of $100 per year has
been mentioned as boing tho an
nual license tho whito barbels nio
willing to pay, providing their
Oriental competitors aio niado to
pay tho samo.
Tho numerous Japaneso barber
shops which hao sprung into ev
istence in tho last few months
hno made sad inroads into tho
receipts of tho shops run by whito
men, and this condition of affairs
is steadily growing worse. With
thoir expenses andtho wages they
pay to journeymen thoy cannot
compote with a Japaneso who will
Bhnvo for five coutB and cut a
man's hair for ton.
Thoro is still anothor reason for
thoir loss of trado which hurts as
much as competition in their own
lino, which is that owing to Jap
anese competition in other lines
tho whito mechanic is compelled
to economize in many ways to
make up for loss of work. Ono
of the first expenses ho knocks off
when ho is out of work is shaving.
Ho either shaves himself
or lets his beard grow,
but in any event tho whito barber
is tho loser.
Somo whito mechanics patron
ize Japaneso barber shops, but it
is to tho credit of Honolulu me
chanics that thoro aro not mauy
of them. Thoro should bo nono,
for tho veriest idiot among thorn
must 8eo that every dime paid to
a Japaneso barbor is bo much
bread and buttor taken out of tho
mouth of some whito man and
probably out of thoso ofhiswifo
and children nlso.

A cfiufch congregation down
in Sanders, Ky., was dismissed
most summarily under un
pleasant circumstances two
Sundays since. Right in the
middle of the preacher's dis
course there bolted into the
church through the half-open
door what appeared to be a
black and white cat, closely
followed by a yellow dog. Cat
and dog uin swiftly down the
middle aisle to the platform.
The preacher taken unawares,
did the natural thing, kicked
at the cat, hit it, and landed it
squarely in the middle of the
congregation. Then it turned
out that the cat was a skunk.
The rest of the story is left to
the imagination of the reader.
This week we want to call
your attention especially to the
Alaska Refrigerator and
give you a few items concern
ing its construction.
To give strength and dura
bility, an inside body, or frame
is made of well dried, matched
wood, to which hardwood
cleats are solidly nailed. Upon
these cleats the outer body, or
frame, is built.
The inner frame is made
from perfectly odorless wood,
and is lined with zinc. Po
lished as bright as a mirror,
presenting a very clean and at
All exposed wood, as under
the lids and about the doors,
is' odorless tulip poplar,
thoroughly shellaced. This
makes the Refrigerator clean
between the outer and inner
walls theie is an inch and a
half space filled with Pure
Charcoal. There is nothing
so good in every way for fil
ling the space between the
two walls ot a Refrigerator as
The locks are entirely new
in principle, and are, without
exception, the best ever used
on a Refrigerator. They will
keep the door closed perfectly
tight, even if they were left
one-eighth inch loose.
The hinges are very strong,
beautiful in design, and made
expressly for The Alaska
All the trimmings are solid
brass, dipped finish, this being
the latest style1 in fine brass
From the results of tests
made during the past three
years, we are convinced that
the Alaska is the best Re
frigerator in the market, in
construction, in power td pre
serve perishables, in economy
of t ice, and, in fact, in all the
points necessary to make them
first-class in every respect.

"My watch is giving mo tho ut
most satisfaction; I actually bo
liovo it does not vary a second

Pleasant remarks these. Just
tho kind of bulm a watchmaker
noeds occasionally to keep up
his sp'irits. For you know
working all day on .a high
stool, a glass firmly screwed
into one eye, looking at objects
so minute it takes a microscope
to distinguish them, is not tho
pit asantest occupation which
could fall to tho lot of man.
So it's no wonder a fellow
gets all out of st rts occasion

cine in the world could not ac
complish, cheers up, makes
things look brighter, the next
job goes all tho smoother.
Speaking ot the above watch:
It was an old one. Tho wearer
hnd used it steadily for forty
years, ll had run etioughjhad
revolved its wheels so long and
steadily, that at last it was
tired out. The pivots were so
worn, the wheels just wobbled
and wobbled, then stopped al
together. What was to bo
done? Throw it away? Get a
new one. Yes, but tho wearer
valued it for its associations, it
was as dear to him as his best
friendjso nothing would do but
build it all over as it wore, re
new the parts, put somo go
into it. That wo accomplished
it to tho entiro satisfaction of
tho owner, his remarks above
would surely leavo no room for
doubt. And wo can do the
samo with yours, sometimes
they go a little too far, and tho
cost for reconstruction is too
much, but generally no work
is too intricato for us. It is
that which wo brag about,
complicated work is our strong
hold. Isn't it reusouablo now
to supposes that wo aro bettor
ablo to do your Jess intricato
work? Wouldn't it bo safer to

watch altogether, no mutter
what tho trouhlo, ami havo u
