-A Now York dipntfli. ropro
duced in unutlior column, shows
thnt 15,000 Ttn.lia.ii immigrants
lmvo outoiod Uio United States
this ycnr and that 15,000 nioro nro
on tho way. Considering that
fully one-half of them aro prac
tically penniless, it is no wonder
that many of them aro being re
fused a landinu at New York on
tho ground that they aro liable to
becomo public charges. Tho great
increaso in Italian immigration to
tho United States is accounted for
by tho rush to escapo conscription
and tho prevalence of hard times
induced by tho Abyssinian war,
financial and political troubles.
To a man up a treo it would
seem as if this was an opportunity
to got cheap labor which tho Ha
waiian Govorumout and planters
should not neglect. An appropri
ation of 50,000 out of tho now
loan asked for by Minister Damon
is asked for "immigration."
That is tho only word sot op
posite tho figures and no
explanation has been givou
bo far as to how the government
proposes to apply this largo sum.
It would seem that tho experiment
of bringing a fow shiploads of
ltalinns to these islands would bo
a profitable one, and at least.would
not bo moro exponsivo than tho
importation of a similar numborof
Oriontals. At any rato wo havo
tho spcctacleof Italian labor going a
begging whilo Hawaiian planta
tion aro suffering for tho want of
just such labor.
A word as to Italian labor. Tho
'writer spent three years in tl o
Argentine) Republic, where tho
labor question is of paramount
importance as it is here, but badly
as the Argontiues have needed
labor thoy havo so far refused to
admit either Chititde or Japa
nese. Their main source
of supply has been Italians
and Irish, and thoso havo
been assisted by tho government
both before and after landing. In
the case of one shipload of Irish
from the agricultural districts that
tho writer remembers, their rail
road fares wore paid from their
homes to Cork, and from thence
thoy wore shipped direct toBuonos
Ayres. Hero thoy wore kept in
an immigration depot, an exact
representation of that at Castlo
Garden, Now York, for a fow days
while all thoso who wanted ser
vants of any kind wont there and
picked out what thoy wanted and
made their own tonus with them.
Tho balance wore then formed
into a colony, and givon a grant
of land, each head of family re
ceiving eighty acres in his own
right, together with a team and
plows, seed grain and provisions
for his family for six mouths. After
that they wore mado to shift for
themselves. With tho Italiaus a
similar course was pursued, but
the majority of them preferred to
shift for thoiiisolves, and immedi
ately on arrival in Buenos Ayres
wont to their relatives and friends,

As a laborer tho Italian may bo
classed with tho Portuguese, thoro
is very little difference in thorn
oxcopt in language. Iu tho city
of Buonos Ayres thoro were -10, -000
Italians working as poonos,
that is day laborors, sweeping
streots, carrying tho hod and in
other kinds of unskilled labor.
Tho hotter class of mechanics
woro English and Scotch, though
there was a good sprinkling of
Italian mechanics, especially
workers in marble, stouo and brick.
Shou'd Italians bo imported
hero they would be found equally
as accoptablo as tho Portuguese
and probably more so. They aie
frugal in thoir living, Industrious
and naturally of a saving disposi
tion. Their priucipal aim seoins
to bo to accumulate money enough
to purchaso a littlo vineyard in
sunny Italy on tho proceeds of
which thoy can live out a peace
ful old ago. Woro an Italian
colony well established in Hawaii
there would soon bo no uso for
imported wines for one thing and
for another ovory scrap of avail
able land would soon be occupied,
for Hawaii offers tho industrious
laborer not only a chance to ac
cumulate a littlo competency but
also a placo whoro ho may plant
his own vino and fig treo without
going back to Italy.
Tho law in California allows
tho Assessor tho privilege of as
sessing at twelvo times tho amount
turned in in cases whoro such
amounts havo been willfully falsi
fied. Tho San Francisco Asses
sor has givon public notico that
ho will increaso tho assessment
ton times in all such cases brought
to his notico, whoro ho finds on
investigation that a man deliber
ately falsifies his statement of
proporly assessable, and in addi
tion will havo tho individual
brought before tho Grand Jury.
Whilo tho San Francisco Call
liw let up on the annexation ques
tion since its chaugo of ownership,
it novor loses a chance to favor tho
Hawaiian cable. In a recent issuo
it says: "Whilo most people
would like to see an early adjourn
ment of Congress thoy would not
like to see it until tho Nicaragua
canal bill, tho immigration re
striction bill aud the Hawaiian
cable bill aro duly passed and sent
up to Clovoland."

The only way to get trade
is to go after it and bring it
back with you and keep it
when you have got it. This
is our doctrine and we prac
tice what we preach. We go
after the trade of Honolulu
and the Hawaiian islands, by
advertising for it, and we find
that it pays us to use whole
columns of the newspapers in
doing so where many mer
chants only use inches. There
is no use denying that adver
tising will bring trade, but any
amount of advertising won't
keep it. The only way to keep
the trade we get by advertising
is to sell good reliable wares,
and never misrepresent an ar
ticle we advertise. We have
never done this yet and we
don't intend to commence at
this late day. The success
which has attended our intro
duction of the wonderful
"NEW PROCESS" BLUE
FLAME COOKING STOVE,
is an instance of the way we
do business. We accepted the
agency of this stove because we
knew its merits. Weadveitis
ed it with certain guarantees
which in every case have been
fulfilled. Our sales last week
were phenomenal but in every
instance the stove sold has4
done just exactly what we said
The Wonderful "New Pro
cess" Blue Flame Oil Stove, is a
coal oil stove that gives a pow
erful blue flame; that operates
without the slightest smoke or
odor; that uses common
Coal-oil (Kerosene); which
will do the work as quickly
and perfectly as any Gas or
Gasoline Stove and in the
operation of which there can
not be the slightest fear of ac
cident. It is the most econo
mical operating stove in the
world, and a stove that admits
of drawing light and heat from
the same barrel.
We have these stoves in two
sizes. The larger with three
top burners and oven is sold
at $2J; the other with two
burners and oven is $22.0.
