AS TO SUGAK.
Uuiler political uniou with tbo
United Stntos there iB not the least
doubt tlmt tho importation of
chenp labor undor contract into
Hawaii would bo prohibited by
the existing laws of that nation.
It is tho shiploads of contract
laborers from Japan that chiefly
tells in tho process, that has been
going on for many years, of crowd
ing thco islands with Japanese.
. The official auspices giving digni
ty to the process would be traus
fened to Washington, and the
Bolf-inlere?tof our planters would
not there be availing to make tho
authorities wink at breaclios of
understandings. Ohiueso immi
gration would como to an end with
tho snap of a Bpriug lock. Our
local authorities would have their
bauds free thou, and probably be
compelled by force of new circum
stances, to make vagrancy laws
that would be effective for com
pelling tho hoBt of Asiatic loafers
in the couutry to go to work.
With all tho laboring population
iu tho couutry at tho date of union
utilized, taking into account con
tracts unexpired which may bo
allowed to run thoir course, tho
sugar plantations might be ex
pectod to safely tide over tho tran
sition to a now labor system.
Should tho necessity arise a draft
could bo mado with facility from
the colored folk of tho Southorn
States, but tho possibility is that tho
planters could adapt thoir inter
ests to the now conditions without
having to resort to oxtraordinary
expedients. Supposiug, howevor,
that for a considerable time sugar
pluuting should bo mado less pro
fitnbh', it would bo placed on a
more secure basis by this country's
coming under tho American flag.
It would havo the assurance of a
free market forever in the country
that lias always taken tho ontiro
Uuwaiiau product. There would
be no periodical seasons of tropi
dation, either over the possible
abrogation of reciprocity or tho
nullification of its udvantagos, to
the putty of this pait, by legisla
tion a' Washington. It iB strong
ly held, as well as fondly hoped,
iu that couutry, that tho United
States will before a great while bo
able to produce all the sugar con
sumed within its bouudB. "When
that tiiuo oven approaches it will
be a coM day for Hawaii if she bo
found still outside of thoso
bounds. It has already been
proved, iu tho experience of tho
McKiuloy tariff period, how littlo
Hawaiian sugar iutercbls counted
when Congress was legislating
what it doomed the best commer
cial mid financial policy for tho
United States. With thn convic
tion and hopo referred to, there is
no question that domostio sugar
w:ll b a subject of thn highest
consideration, in America's policy
of protecting and nourishing
homo industry, just as long as
that policy will pievail. And it
is not necessary to concodo that
artiticial nurture and support of
home industry isjight, to indicate
Hawiii's nlvantagos in coming
under tho sway of the doctrine,
whoa the bald certainty is that it
will bo mauy years if not presi
dential tonus- -before tho United
States will adopt any fiscal policy
containing even the semblance of
freo trade. With her absoluto
commercial dependence upon
America, it is hotter that Iluwaij
should be an organic part of that
nation. Auuoxatiou might for
tho initial orperienco be disap
pointing, or cause some slight
embarrassment from changed con
ditions, but tho possibilities of
Hawaii's faring if sho remain out
in tho cold may easily bo imagin
ed as damagiugly uncortain .nnd
According to Minister Irwin it
will bo a long timo before Asano's
lately much boomed transpacific
line from San Diego will trace its
routo with smoke iu the skies.
Accounts from othor sources of
late would indicato that in matters
besides ocean commerce Jopau is
not quito ready to eat all tho
world up. Sho has a good deal to
digest at homo for a small spoil,
and oven littlo Hawaii would be
apt to stick in hor crop if sho es
sayed to make a breakfast of these
pearls of tho Pacific.
Evory new file of papprs from
tho Pacific Coast, it would seem,
must havo its stoamor wrecked on
that side of the continent. Within
a few days of the loss of v tho
steamer Mnzatlan, happily unat
tended by loss of life, tho steam
collier San Uenito runs on tho
rocks at Point Arena, and iu her
wiecking eight of tho crow lose
their lives. There would appear
to bo a call for strict investigation
by tho authorities of the qualifica
tions of soino of tho coasting
In tho middlo of its roport of
tho lato prize fight, tho San Fran
cisco Bulletin Bays: "It isstiango,
but heavyweight contests for
world's championships alwayB oud
in flomo sort of fizzle." Yet such
fizzles seem to bo the most favored
means, with tho San Francisco
pross, for advertising tho high
civilization of tho metropolis of
the Pacific Coast.
It is tho opinion of tho Planters'
Monthly that sugar will not go up
next year. Whoro in tho world
would it go, then, if Cuba had
boon supplying its usual quota
tho past year 1

There are many kinds of cut
glass sold and, to tho ordinary
purchaser, one make is as good
as another. The valuo of tho
pieces depends of curse, on
the cutting. If the edges aro
sharp, you uiay depend upon
it that the qunlity is good.
Among all tho makrs of cut
glass in the- Vnit'.-d Sbitfs but
one fir.m si'lls enough to war
rant their having a wureroom
in New ,York. Every one in
tho states knows which firm
that is Dorfhnger. In tho
large cities, frmu Boston, south
to Kichmond and west to Den
ver, the purchaser puts but ono
cut glass question to a salesman,
"Is it Djrflingor's?" The make
is so well known that the name
soils it. Our stock in this lino
is entirely from tho Dorflinger
factory oilier dealers think it
is the bi-st, tho buyer? think it
tho bes, then why should not
we? Othor makes may be as
good, tliev me certainly no
bettor. Cut glass has been
looked upon as essentially a
luxury of tho wealthy class,
but our cut glans at cut prices,
both cut, makes it possible for
tho middle class to own pieces
of various sizes and shapes
Wo havo also a desire to
call your attention to a stock
of silver ware, genuine sterl
ing, that excels most anything
of tho kind ever shown here.
