ii... ..t..i.i:i :.. n. ports oxorcisinc tho mind of
Umtwi Stales of thoroughly equip- i
tied technical schools, to nivo all
tho workers of tho country a
chance to bo skilled. Its advo
cacy is based on recently publish
ad fnctb regarding tho compaiativo
status of British and German
manufacture'. Lately a deputa
tion of learned Englishmen has
,... ...b..a...,. ..
boon in Germany studying tho
industrial conditions there. Tho
fact that English merchants havo
found it profitable to import goods
from Germany and thou export
them to South Amorica and tho
various British eolonios was deem
ed important enough to call for
careful investigation. Some of
tho mou who wout to Germany on
this occasion had been members
of ft similar commission fifteen
years ago. Whilo thoy wore in
Berlin at that time thero was a
big building being orocted thero,
to bo used as a technical school,
wliioh was to cost Sl,850,000. "On
their second visit," wo aro told,
"they fouud this school was train
ing 3000 students, and it had been
necessary to put up additional
buildings. In a siuglo German
fni;!vry thoy fouud 100 thoroughly
educated chemists employed to
experiment to discover bettor mo
thods of production. This is an
enterprise for turning scholarship
to practical account of such mag
nitude as to startlo English aud
American manufacturers and
awake them to tho necessity of
careful training in those who
would stand up long in the
ring of industrial competition."
Sir Philip Magnus, tho leader of
the inquiry on each of tho occa
sions, has stated in an address that
almost, all tho profitable results
from h valuablo discovory made
by an English chemist wore being
reaped by Germany, becauso of tho
largo number of practically train
ed chemists available for uso in
tho factorios in that land of wido
ly oxtonded technical instruction.
"Auothor interesting revelation of
tho report is that the manufactur
ers of Gormauy find that shorten
ing tho hours of labor does not
increuso tho cost of production;
brains aro far more important a
factor in prosperity than drudgery,
and tho fact that tho groat manu
facturers aro getting a practical
proof of it augurs well for tho
future of the workingman." Ha
wuii is indebted in a very high
degree, for the advanced condition
of its chief industry, to tho tech
nical skill of Germany. Tho
quiot, modest, scholarly gon
Uemen toiling in the labora
tories of Hawaiian sugar mills,
lmoat uuknown to tho general
public, perform what iB probably
the most important skilled ser
vices of all required in field and
factory. Whon mechanical in
genuity gets tho last posbiblo drop
of juice out of tho cane, tho scien
tific skill of the laboratory gets
tho last possible grain of sugar
out of tho juice. This is whoro
thoro is most danger of loss in
quantity and damago in quality
of the final raw product, and for
tho high standing of Hawaiian
sugar mauufacturo the wiso
domestic policy of Germany, in
providing liberally for industrial
cientifio education, iB vory large
ly tq be credited.

may bo in questions of that dopth,
howovor, taking tho position of

that is, if any maritime nation but
Spain hersolf has such an interest.
Tho BiBing Sun Empiro cannot
bo denied, along with its adoption
of western ways, tho privilege of
claiming its duo "sphere of in
fluence" after tho western diplo
matic mode of discourse over
neighbors less advanced and not
quito ablo to take care of them
selves. If that "sphere" for her
j is ot .-lowed, by any forco or
combination of forces, to compro-
houd the Philippine Isluuds, it is
not worth talking about for tho
preaont. When all thin is said, it
is to bo remembered that thoro is
au outBido as woll as an insido to
every sphere. If Japan insists
upon duo respect for tho full in
sido dimensions of hor sphoro, tho
more certainly will bo disputed

ALL'S WELL, ETC.
Efforts at a compromise be
tween tho ownorB and lessees of
part of tho new plantation land,
reported in this paper on Friday,
came to a satisfactory issue. It
was no fault of tho aftornoou
press that comploto information
on this point was not given the
samo day. Such information
would have allayed any public
anxiety regarding the great ontor
priso caused by publication of
proceedings in Judd vs. Brown
a different matter, into which tho
lawyers and not tho press import
ed tho difficulty in question.
Newspaper conductors aro not
supposed to canvass thoir consti
tuencies for ascertaining what
effect tho publication of logitimato
nows will havo upon any interests.
It is necessary to say this much,
on account of an impression
abroad that the afternoon press
had given an inaccurate report of
tho Judd-Brown proceedings.
Stato ownership of railways is a
successfully solved problem in
Now South )Valos, Australia. In
spite qf such drawbacks as com
morcial depression, drought that
caused a loss of 13,000,000 sheep,
the Newcastle strike, etc., tho rail
ways cleared a largo profit. At
tho samo time tho improvement
of the linea went steadily forwnrd,
tho railways now boing equal to
any in tho world.

Sunday morning. Lovo was '
Bhown to bo tho greatest power
known to man; tho greatest in tho I
Universe, for "God ib love." Tho
necessity of lovo manifesting I
itself in an orderly, thoughtful, '
earnest way was dwelt upon. God ,
has also given the text as one of
"the tests by which wo may know '
that wo aro his followers.
If we lovo Him, wo
will' keep his commandments.
"How tho Gospel came to Europe,"
was tho theme and "Cotno ovor
and holp us" tho text in tho even
ing. "Only about fifty lives stand
betweon us aud our heathen au-
ccstors, who first heard the gospel
of Christ in Europe," said tho ,
pastor. Befiued, educated, artistic '
Greece; law-giving, world-ruling,
masterful Borne; sturdy, fiorcoly
freo Norii'man, Gaul, Briton, oil
needed the gospel of Christ as
tho foundation upon which to
build tho superstructure of our
present civilization. As Paul saw
a man earnestly praying him to
como over to Eurrjpo nnd preach
and practise the gospel of Christ,
bo today Africa, India, China, otc,
stretch out appealing bauds of
prayer, calling us to "Como ovor
with tho blessings of the gospel
of Christ." We, too, aro to do it,
like Paul, earnestly, tirelessly, at
once, and in tho spirit of Him
whoso gospel it is.

At tho morning sorvice of tho
Christian Church, two Sunday
Sohool girls in thoir oarly teens
camo forward, at tho stated op
portunity, to signify thoir belief
in Christ aB tho Son of God. In
consequence of this gratifying in
cident Pastor J. M. Monroo an
nounced a change of subject from
that advertised for the evening
sermon. AVhou the time came ho
delivered a telling discourse on
tho right of children arrived at an
intelligent ago to admission into
tho church. The gist of his argu
ment was that growth in Christian
graco and knowledge naturally
followed instead of procedod tho
profession of faith. In many ac
counts of conversions, individual
and collective, in ' the New
Testament, tho profession of be
lief in Christ followed a single
hearing of tho gospel, This
proved that faith was not bolief in
a wholo body of divinity such as
tho Westminster Confession of
Faith or the Thirty uino Articles
but the childlike acceptanco of
the single fact that Jesus Christ
was tho Son of God anil tho Sav
iour of tho world. At tho close of
tho service two other Sunday
Schools girta went forward to
make profession of faith. Tho
two admitted in tho morning wore
baptized. Besides tho four
juvenile members admitted
for tho day, an adult
man was roceived by letter.
