THE OTHER SIDE.
Until English and French sugar
splnntors in the West Indies aro
in straits, nud nro culling to thoir
respective governments for relief.
Thoy want protection iu thoir
very mother countries ngaiust the
foteign sugar fed with bouutios.
If under prosout political rein
-tious tho United States should
protect hor market against Hawai
ian ua well ns other foreign sugar,
Hawaii would havo no mother
country to cry to and would have
to protect herself. This sho could
do, in a way to make the smart
Alecks of the Chronicle stamp
wince, by tnxiug Amoricnn goods
to pay a bounty onllawaiiau sugar.
Kot t discriminating tax, which
would be an "unfriendly act,"
but one that would put American
goods on the samo footing as
European and Oriental. It would
not tako a long timo for such a
policy to mako dull times on
many a wharf of tho Pacific Coast,
where hundreds of men are uow
busy lading and unlading vessels
in tho Hawaiian trade. Vessols
flying other Hags than tho stars
and shines, after discharging
cheap European and Japaneso
merchandise at our ports, would
carry our bounty-fed sugar to any
market that could be found.
British colonial lumber and pro
visions would undersell American
products here, and tho beautiful
vessels now sailing out of the
Golden Gate and Pugot Sound, iu
tho Hawaiian trade, would bo laid
up in their home rotten rows. Tho
politicians of tho United States
might then talk "control of tho
Hawaiian Islands" to their hearts'
content. Everybody here should
be glad to hear them, and rejoico
in tho seourity such "control"
would afford to our independent
commorco. But the pleasnro of
flinging tho refrain, "hands off,"
' to other Powers would bo nbout
nil thut tho United States had in
the Ramo, while other countries
should have tho profit of "hands
in," deop, in not to bo despised
commercial relations with Hawaii
In plain langungo, Hawaii would
havo tho actual status of a British
colony under tho protection of tho
American ling. Tho United State
would about that timo bo tho patty
to seek closer political union. Sho
might just as woll conc6do it now,
first ns last, while Hawaii is tho
soeker. It would not look woll for
x big country to bo coerced by a
little ono. Mr. John Sherman, the
Secretary of State designate, is
xnsppctfully proffered this packet
of Hawaiian '"jacoy," with tho re
quest that ho put it in his pipo and
DON'T SCARE BUT BE
WARE. Jnpnn had two handsomo now
fiTuisors stationed at Honolulu bo
lore hor war with China. They
pave u good account of thomsolves
in tho war. For many years be
lore tho visit of theso "beauties,"
modeled as they woro after the U.
S. S. Charleston, calls of Japa
nese warships woro not few and
lar between by any means. Ho
Bolulu was on tho contrary n
calling station in tho periodical
entities of tho Japanese training
ships. It is surprising that Japan
is so long in sending a naval
loaror of tho sunburst here, since
tho war has left hor with moro
ehips of war for details than she
had before. It is quite woll known
that tho radioal, or "Young Japan"
party, oponly, in parliament
and tho press, before and since
Uio war, has advocated Hint tho
Empiro should tako a hand in Ha
wniian affairs. Yet thero is no
reason for coupling talk of this
kind from a Japnncso political
faction with the rumor that n
Japaneso warship is coming to
make an indefinite stay nt Hono
lulu. Jnpnu has n lot of poople
hore moro thnn twonty thousnnd,
nud still coming nnd it is not
cnuso for alarm in itself if sho
send n ship hore to show her Dug.
Thero is causo for npprehousion
as to tho future, though, from
having so many of ono alien
untiounlity hero nud moro coming.
Many of thorn nro qualifying
for tho electoral franchise
hero, and under treaty relations
they will havo to bo given it when
qualified. It will not bo this
year or next, but it may happen bo
foro many years, that the Japan
eso will control tho Legislature of
Hawaii. Thon supposo tho Legis
lature Bhould voto to roplaco tho
national onBign with tho sunburst
flog of Japan? Two or three
Japanese cruisors in tho harbor or
tho offing thon would havo real
significance. All tho more, if tho
bumptiousness of tho "Young
Japan" party nt homo today shnll
thon havo bocomo the dominant
policy of the Empire.
-It is hoped by tho Bulletin
that, after tho central firo 'station
has boon built, tho old suggestion
of this paper, that branch stations
should bo established at conveni
ent distances apart, will be taken
into consideration by the Govern
ment. Thero ought to be ono
iu tho Paliuiia suburb, another
woll up Nuuanu valley, ono at
Waikiki and anothor out on Kula
okahua plains. These might with
great advantage, and perhaps real
economy, bo also combined with
branch police stations. Tho build
ings would not need to bo ex
pensive whilo being neat and
commodious. If full paid
.crews for apparatus could
not be afforded nt the outsot, thoro
would bo no lnck of nthletio young
volunteers in ench district to run
out tho machines. Steam ongincs
would probnbly not bo noodod, at
loast in overy station, with our im
proving water pressure. Porhaps
the prosont chemical ongiuo could
be placed in one, portablo exting
uishers and hand grenades in
others, but light hose reals iu all.
With all tho firo fighting imple
ments as now kept in tho business
portion of tho city, thoro is abso
lutely uo chanco of saving any
building in tho outer residential
quarters,' ouco a firo gains head
way in it. As for tho polico sub
station part, it needs no argument
to show tho benefit of tho system
hero recommended. Wheu, ns
sometimes happens, a wave of
houso-brcakiug and sneak-thieving
crimo strikes tho city, nil that
a molested householder can do,
wheu awaro of an intruder's pre
sence, is to scare him awuy with
n gun, with tho chance that tho
fellow goes to tho next block in
search of promisos whoso ocou
pants aro sounder sleepers. It is
no uso to rniBo tho huo and cry
for the polico, who aro all takiug
caro of the stores downtown.
Lnw and order leagues origin
nted as a necessity iu communities
whoso locul administration of
affairs had becorao steopod in cor
ruption. Do thoso who aro pro
moting such n now wheel within
whoels in this city and this coun
try mean to imply that tho neces
sity exists hero ? If education of
public opinion and agitation, for
procuring reform legiHlation, nro
tho lines of notion intended by
the movers, they should sail un
der truo colors nnd not under n
borrowed flag that gives tho whole
government of Hawaii a bad namo
An increaso of population nnd
a decrease of Bugar exports, both
at a high rato, mako tho present
bad condition in the British West
Indies. Fortunnloly thus far iu
Hawaii thorn is increaso in ench
of thoso rospects, that of popula

product of tho othor. It is grati
fying also to uoto nn increaso of a
