DANIEL LOGAN, Editor.
TUESDAY, JULY 14, 189G.
Frequently it is read in the
papers nnd hoard on' tho streets
that Chiuoso competition in labor
and trade is not a circumstances to
tho Japanese article. "Whereon
somebody in n position to know a
great deal of what is going on re
marked to tho editor, that people
who say such a thiugdo not know
what thoy are talking about. Ho
iustunced tho building trnde, in
which ho said tho Ohiueso were
walking all round tho Chinese.
Cortaiuly thoro is no indication
along our business streets that tho
Japanese are running out tho Chi
nese, although it is clear that the
number of Japaucso stores sprung
up in tho past few yoars, added to
the Chinese long a leading na
tionality in trade hero, hns added
jti3t to much to tho competition
that tho American and European
dealers, both wholesale and retail,
have to oucouuter. At the same
time, while there have been ro
markably few failures among
oithor white or Chinese storekeep
ers, and none of any great magni
tude, iu a long period of years,
siivoral Japaueso stores of con
siderable pretensions havo gone
under or out within a compara
tively short time. Ono of these,
that of an individual trading un
der a high-sounding corporate
name, had tho elements of afgood
sized swindle in it. Moreover, in
tho past ten years or Biuco au
anti-Asiatic agitation took form
nnd force, though spasmodic in
its operation wo havo soon a de
cided increaso in trade conducted
by Mliite funis. Those long es
tablished havo come to require
larger and bettor storos, new ones
have entered tho nrena and quick
ly acquired iu advertising lan
guage "a fair sharo oj! public
patronage," and there has beou
soon tho inauguration, with
evident success, of special stores
handling but ono line of goods.
Indeed, it would seem to have
boon fully proved in Honolulu,
that competition is tho lifo of
trade. Some of tho earlier estab
lished firms aro perhaps not do
ing so much business as thoy did
a few years ago, and no doubt
havo to bo content with smaller
profits on what they sell. Yet
thoy all seem to havo a more or
less satisfactory degroo of pros
perity, and the purchasing public
como in for advantago in the re
duction of pricoB.
What is tho secret of such an
expansion of gonoral business,
with Btronuous if not fierce com
petition all tho while? Simply
thoro has beou a steady advance
in developing the resources of tho
country. Each succeeding year,
almost, more money has como in
to tho country in exohauge for its
products, and a goodly sharo of
tho enhanced increment has been
put into the soil to swell tho in
cr.'jaso. besides tho enlarged area
o! nugar cane fiolds, these years
havo ivituesbod tho rapid develop
ment of coffee cultivation. Thoro
is no doubt that a groat deal of
capital not gained from Hawaiian
8 til huB beou brought into tho coun
tiy to fatten this young industrial
giant, as well as not n littlo do
mestically earned money put to
tho same purpose which otherwise
might havo sought foroigu invest
ment. There is no more heard in
tho land tho voico of tho Byron in
viting domestic capital to tho
corner lots of tho American north
west and tho orange groves of
California. Homo enterprise has i
stilled that particular charmer.
Another new industry for whoso
Buceess hopes nro crowing higher
is that of pineapple ruining and j
preserving for export, which has '
boon the means of keeping and
distributing a conBidorablo of
money in tho country. In theso
now industries tho cheap labor
that has boon so much deplored,
as tho fountain of a groat deal of
tho competition in trade and
skilled labor, has been found val
uable to a degree that makes it
appear less of an unmixed ovil
than would othorwiso bo tho caso.
When all is said that has been,
howover, it must bo conceded that
tho stress of competition, in lines
of trade and industry apart from
tho agricultural interests, is too
great from tho Bourco of labor
immigration. In tho interest of
social and political development
upon western models all legitimate
checks should bo npplied to pre
vent tho increnso of such compe
tition. "With regard to Chinese
and Japaueso who aro now free
from contract and under no bonds
to return home, absolutely nothing
can bo dono to proven t their en
tering into any private lino of
business or employment. Thoro
is legislation enough, if it bo on
forced, to provont any farther ad
dition to tho number of Ohiueso
in tho country, oxcopting for ex
clusively agricultural or domestic
labor under contract. Thero is
no such preventive measure to
check the transfers of Japaueso
from tho ranks of contract labor
to those of free competition, but
it iB in the powor of the Govern
ment to put a Btop to the importa
tion of Japaueso under public
auspices and encouragement. This
would bo some Blight impediment
to tho threatened overwhelming
of ordinary trade and labor with
Japaneso immigration. Abovo all
things tho Government should not
havo Chincso or Japaneso em
ployed on public works. These
claims of what should bo done
nro not presented out of rnco
jjrejudico against either tho Chi-
iioseB or Japaueso, but in simple
justice to tho nativo children of
tho country and peoplo of tho
races that havo given tho country
its civilization, therefore havo
prescriptive rights as against
other foreign nationalities in
governing tho affairs and tho
destinies of tho country.
If, as somo cisatlantic papers
insinuate, Prince Bismarck and
Li Hung Chang never held such
a conversation as that attributed
to thom, the report is then inter
esting enough as showing the in
genuity of tho European reporter.
Should tho roport bo officially
repudiated, its writor's fortune
will bo assured.

and Cream Separators
Now that the Fourth of July
celebration is over and people
are settling down to business
again, we desire to call the
attention of the residents of
the Hawaiian Islands to a few
matters of interest.
We have lately been ap
pointed sole agents for Bar
ber's Refrigerating Ma
chines. This machine can readily be
arranged in creameries, etc., so
as to cool cream, milk and
water to any desired tempera
ture down to and below freez
ing, as also to hold a well
insulated butter-room at any
temperature desired above $0
degrees, only requiring the
running of the machine from
four to six hours per day,
which is the usual time that
the other machinery in a
creamery is operated.
In addition to creameries,
these machines are also adapted
for use in produce houses,
meat markets, hotels, club
houses, etc. Their perfect work
has been demonstrated fully
in the past two years in a large
number of creameries in differ
ent portions of the East, and
more particularly in the Elgin,
III., district, as well as in butter
houses in Chicago, New Or
leans, and elsewhere.
The cost of operation is no
minal, as the charge of ammo
nia furnished with the plant
should last a year or more
without recharging, and will
cost only about $ J.00
The De Laval Cream
Separators are now in al
most universal creamery or
factory use the world over,
and in the past few years the
Dairy or "Baby" sizes of these
machines have almost as com
pletely revolutionized general
dairying as had the larger
rnachines previously the cream
The De Laval Company now
presents to the public a smaller
type of its latest and most
improved "Alpha" machines
intended for household and
small dairy use, and designed
to confer in its new field the
same inestimable benefits of
centrifugal separation of cream
from milk as have the larger
machines in their respective
No more fitting and des
criptive term could well be
applied to this little machine
than the name which has been
so aptly given it, the "Humming-Bird."
It is very small,
very compact, extremely sim
ple, easily understood and
cared for, safe and durable. It
possesses every advantage to
be found in any of the larger
"Alpha" machines, is so ex
tremely easy of operation by
reason of its new method of
obtaining motion as to be
designed mainly for use by
women and children, and is
absolutely thorough in its
effectiveness. It need simply
be said that it fulfills every
requirement of its purpose.

Put a ring around the word
opportunity tho occasion
makes it. Never in the his-
'tory of mercantile transac
tions in Honolulu have tho
peoplo had such a golden
opportunity to select a lamp
as to-day. A manufacturer
who had moro than he knew
what to do with, moro than ho
had space to put them, wrote
us of his troubles. We had
none of our own so (we '
listened to him. Our stock of
lamps is tho result of his tale
of woe and you get the benefit.
A black lamp that will give
a bright light is not a fad, but
a style that will remain until
"New Hawaii" shall become
old. Being sombre in color
they furnish with any decora
tions you may havo in your
room and any color shade that
suits your fancy will look
well on the lamp.
For a dinner tablo nothing
furnishes the table better than
black banquet lamps. Wo havo
them, not cumbersome, but of
a height that will beautify
rather than detract from the
other features. We havo piano
lamps, hall lamps, boudoir
lamps and every other character
of lamp that ever was made.
Tho prices aro so low that
it would injure our business
to put them in this column.
