" Well done us!" cry the Stnr
and Advertiser over tho more fav
orrtblo prospectd of tho income
tax bill ut thoolovcnth hour. With
tho tromondouB influence of which
theso papers boast, it is a pity
that they did not hnvo tho mea
sure brought forward to its pre
sent position carlior. That is, if
it in going to bo such a grand
sourco of revenuo as they claim
All the timo that is loft will pro
bably not bo sufficient for having
the mensu.ro porfected so ns to
stand the ordeal of a judicial test
that will almost certainly be ap
plied to if.
Sonator McCnndless fought
fiercely nud prevailed against tho
Government refunding scheme,
holding that tho saving in
interest was not worth hast
ening tho measure to obtain.
Yet tho same Senator becomes
frautic in urging tho income tax,
although that is not likely to
realizo as much as rofundiug
would savo. Besides, n bettering
of tho condition of tho treasury by
retrenchment, such as makes tho
country stronger instoad of weak
er to carry out permanent intornal
improvements, ought to have pre
cedence in popular choico over
any motsuro of direct taxation.
One of tho arguments that has
been used against lefuuding is
that, in the intorest of tho cause
of annexation, tho most ample
timo ought to
bo afforded for
at l-feducod interest. Nobody
who has talked this way, however,
has hoard of United Statos capital
going about bogging for securities
bearing four to five per cont. in
terest. Thero uro much moro
profitable investments for it at
homo, whore it will bo a long timo
yet, with still vnst undeveloped
resources, before capital will ceaso
lldwing in instead of out.
Nothing could be moro falla
cious than tho plea for keeping
tho intorest on tho national debt
at homo, which has been heard
against refunding with tho aid of
foreign capital. There is every
probability that tho interest
monoy payablo tinder refunding
to domostic capitalists would to a
largo extent bo sont out of the
country for consorting Pugot
Sound and Southern California
"boom" properties that aro liko
'wliito olophants on Hawaiian
hands. Every dollar that is saved
to tho nation iB a dollar "kept in
tho country," no matter through
what ohannol it rolls. If Hawaii
an capital can underbid foreign
capital in refunding tho national
debt, so much tho better nnd let tho
bidders speak quick or hold their
Again tho ciy is heard, as in
tho eighties whenever a loan was
mooted, of tho terrible danger of
tho country's getting into tho
hands of British bond-holdors.
The warning example of Egypt
has not yet boon invoked this timo,
but it will likoly be before forty
oight hours have elapsed. Well,
it seems on tho whole that it has
been rather a good thing for
Egypt that British bondholders
should have got a cinch on tho
country. But to hnvo Biitish
holders of Hawaiian bonds bring
ing about any interfoionco of
Great Britain with the affairs of
this country, Hawaii would need
to become misgoverned and threat
ened with annrchy and totally
deserted by hor powerful ally,
tho United Statos.. Millions
and millions of tho bonds
of South Amoricau countries,
that nro nono too well govornod
aio hold in London. Yot when
has any of thoso countries been
threatened with British intorfer-'
onco on nccount of oven tho sever
est commercial and financial crises
that have overtaken thorn? Take,
for instance, tho Argontina crash
of a few years ago, whou tho groat
, firm of Baring Bros, was brought
j to tho ground. It was not British
bayonets that interfered then,
but British gold that in its own
selfish protection camo to tho
I succor of both tho bankrupt
country and its bankrupt creditors.
British capital whorovor heavily
nlnced has its iulhienco, and
a powerful one as soon in tho
' lato Anglo-American war scare in
j tho United Slates, but tho prob
I abilities are that in Hawaii ifn in" j
flucuco would bo for careful and
i ocouomicol government without
any British political advantage, j
In tho United States tho ,
pooplo never shudder when thoy
hear, at brief intervals, of grout
domostic projects being backed or
aided by British capital. Why,
then, should tho peoplo of Hawaii
bo seized with cold shivers whan
over it is proposed that tho coun
try Bhall avail itsolf of tho ad
vantages of tho chonpest monoy
markot in tho world, especially
when our groat republican
neighbor insists with stronger
emphasis than over upon main
taining tho paramount outside in
fluence, among all the Poworu of
tho earth, ovor tho destinies of this
Western Ilomisphoro ?
Another iustauco of deplorable I
and almost criminal
monoy in connection
Legislative printing camo to light
this morning in tho Senate. Five
hundred dollars additional was
asked and voted for printing 500
extra copies of tho report of the
Board of Education. Under the
law this report is supposed to bo
ready in printed shape at tho
opening of tho Legislature. It
did not make its appearanco until
three or four weeks ago and tho
Sonato Printing Committeo
ordered it printed. Not
knowing anything of tho
needs of tho Board of Education
only 100 copies were printed, of
which tho Board received ton.
Tho bills for printing and trans
lating this report came to S600
or six dollars a copy. Now comes
the Board of Education with a ro
quisitiou for 500 oxtia copies,
which according to Minister
Cooper's statemont in tho Senate
this morning nro actually neces
sary and must bo had at a further
exponso of S500. The printing of
tho Senate odition of this report
would have been unnecessary had
tho Board of Education attonded
to its business and had its reports
ready at tho beginning of tho ses
sion. Truly it is high timo tho
Board of Education was put uudor

Orcnt Circus Siu'coti.
So crowded was tho tont for the
now program of tho Hawaiian
Circus on Saturday ovoniug that
chairs hnd to bo placed in tho
spneo between tho ring and the
gallery nnd scores of spectators
had to stand. Tho performance
in ovory part was enthusiastically
applauded. Thero was a notable
improvement in tho riding acts.
Leonardo performed thrilling and
novel feats on tho aorial rings. In
tho Vaudeville portion ovory part
mado tho canvas vibrato with tho
echoes of mirth. Scott and Bow

kopt up anopidomioof merriment.

Sugar planters know more
ways of getting ricli than
holding down their taxes. As
was stated to the writer by an
intelligent observer the other
day: " It takes as much care
and vigilance to run a planta
tion and mill as to run an
ocean steaimhip. Every little
detail, every screwhead and
bolt, has to be inspected to
see that nothing goes wrong."
In the matter of saving waste
and expenses, which is half the
battle for profits, the planters
of these islands have made an .
The care of their live stock
makes no small amount of the
expenses of plantations, and
anything saved here increases
the profits as well as a gain in
the percentage of extraction of
sugar from the cane. In the
cut above given you' have a
view of a 12-foot geared Aer
motor we have put up at
Kapaa, Kauai, for the Alakee
Sugar Company. And here, in
the second illustration, is
shown the use to which the
power is applied.
All the cane tops for feeding
the stock are cut in this
machine driven by the Aer
moto. The motive power is
also utilized for pumping
water for the animals. One
man attends to the whole
business where, before the ad
vent of the giant "Ventosus,"
the labor of several men was
We have contracted with
the trustees of the Queen's
Hospital to remove a steel mill
(of another make) long ago
erected at the institution,
taking it away as "slops" and
subatituting it with an Aer
motor. The old one has not
given satisfaction, and the
trustees are acting on the
splendid reputation gained
by the Aermotor. Less wind
than it takes to run the Legis
lature will put the Aermotor
in a state of successful revo
lution. While we are talking to you,
