Mr. P. C. Jones, it is hoped,
sounded tlio knoll of the coutrnct
labor aystein, in his ablo and oi
lmustivo paper ou "Profit Shar
ing" hoforo tho Social Sciouco
Club, i'hote wero iu his nudieuce
several KoutlpinoQ who like him
self are prominoutly identified
with the nugir industry ot this
couutiy, to which contract labor
has for many years boon repro
sonted as abholutely essential for
success. But the oasayist gavo
clear demonstrations in proof of
the theory that a hotter system for
nil concornod for employer as w oil
ns employed was not only possi
ble but, iu tho cases of several
plantations iu these islands, had
beon actually put into effect.
Scarcely less than tho ability and
lucidity of the thesis was it grati
fying to find that tho tono of the
gathoiiug was strongly iu sym
V -pathy with tho views of tho
author. Tho ovont at the very
least made it clear as day that tho
sugar plantors of Hawaii aro not
wedded to the contract labor sys
tem, ns nn impression that has
gone beyond tho confines of the
group would havo it. They
aro more than willing and
ready to abandon it entirely
for n Hj-stom that will not only nt
tract a bettor class of labor than
is now gouerally employed, but
improve the character ami enhance
tho diguity of tho identical labor
ers introduced under tho presont
( system. It might havo been pre
dieted long ago that tho Hawaiian
planters would one day adopt rad
icul measures of reforming their
labor system. Thoy havo been
from the beginning constantly
making progress toward perfpc
tiou in the processes of cultivation
ami manufacture, and now
that the industry horo has
boeu raised to a piano as
high as exists auy wlioro, it is only
natural that they should turn their
active minds to the question of the
labor system. It has already
benn demonstrated that there is
more than one satisfactory alter
native to contract labor possible,
and, when it is considered that
each casn in point was worked
out, us it uere, by groping toward
the light, it may easily bo assum
ed that the 'examples will quickly
have many followers possibly
-with variations, so that un im
proved labor Hystora, adaptable to
tho conditions of any estate in .the
islands, may speedily be evolved.
Unless annexation be hastened
boyond our best expectations
there is t good chance that the
contract labor system of Hawaii, of
which such a handle has been made
on the other side, will be in pro
cess of demolition at the hands of
the plantors throughout the group
before it be atruck by tho melting
breath of tho American constitu
tion. That would bo n happy
event, making a his
toric parallol to tho destruc
tion, "f tho idols, by the Hawa
iian;;, whilo the first Amoricon mis
sionaries wore still only on their
way hithor, and probably becalm
ed in tho doldrums. Iu this con
nection, Mr. Haldwiu's reference
to uuiioxatioii, at tho gathering

HOW TO KEEP COOL IN
During this sultry variable
weather, so productive of
moist ihirt collars and limp
neckwear, the mind naturally
reverts to something cool and
refreshing. It is not every
one that can afford one of the
handy refrigerators so much in
vogue, but an ICE CHEST
which is just what its name
implies is within the reach of
moit people. We carry them
in four sizes, They are cheap,
economical, handy and dui-
ab'.e, and we have just received
a fresh invoice of them.
We have abo a new con
signment of the ALASKA
REFRIGERATORS in five
sizes, at greatly reduced prices.
They are charcoal lined and
are the best in the market.
We have also the NOVEL
TY CIRCULAR REFRIGE
RATOR. It is made of metal
throughout, is handsomely
painted, has adjustable rotary
shelves which can be raised or
lowered at any angle, will hold
more ice and more meat or
provisions than any ordinary
refrigerator and takes up less
We have also a fresh invoice
