DANIEL LOGAN, Editor.
"WEDNESDAY, FEB. 10, 1897.
Mr. Crawley's elsowhero quoted
summary of probable, if not iu
ovitable, butieGts to accrue from
tho general ndoptiou of profit
sharing by employers iu general
furnishes much food for thought.
"What ho says would iuuro to the.
wolf at o of tho stato opens out a
widn field of idons for considora
tiou. 1 lio plan seoms to promise
a natural inurement of the ad
vantage claimed, but it is to bo
feaied with bliud optimism, for
state socialism. By it the
humblest laborer in tho land
would bo given that "stake in
the country" without which, iu
tho fashion of the times, ho is li
able to bo snubbed if ho venture
to talk about tho rights of labor.
"When put in a position whore by
benefiting his employer he should
benefit himself, the quality of an
eraployco'a services would surely
bo improved and, at tho same time,
a development of character would
begin in himsolf which should
greatly enhance his own valuo to
tho stato rs a citizou Ho should
the while stnvo to acquire such a
degree of iutelligeuco as to qualify
himself for deciding, as a holder
of tho electoral franchise, ques
tion1) afffoting the industry and
trade of the nation. In othor wordp,
ho should bocomo a student
of political economy. Against
all kinds of hurtful agitation he
should sot his faco, knowing that
such would directly harm his own
intorests. In hort, iu public aw
in privato affairs, tho workingman,
under tho rogiraoof profit sharing,
would bo a "partuer in the bui
noss" and no more a blind parti
san. Appearances are that tho bill
before Congress, to refuse a sub
sidy to any cable company having
exclusive lauding privileges in
any country the cable is propoaed
to touch, is going to puss. Tln
should uot make any diftV renew in
tho prospects or a cable now, a
such an exclusive privilege held
heie by Mr. Spalding will lapse
inside of three months. All that
is needed to securo a cablo is that
the United States shall meet Ha
waii halfway in liberality of on
couragomeut. This, it may reason
ably be hoped, that groat couato
will do before ver Ion".
It is much to be regretted that
the outerpriso of tho company of
Portuguoso, who, started a planta
tion and mill at Hilo, should have
got into troublod wators. The
oxporiinnnt was watched from all
sides with interest, as promising
a successful new departuro for
that nationality. Howovor, thoy
should take for themselves the
motto, "Try again."
It is to be hoped that Mr. Jones'
ablo troatise dn profit sharing
will bo printod in full in the
Plitntnrs' Monthly, so that its
arom.ionts and tho scheme with
'which it concludes may bo con
sidui'd by all the planters of the
cnnty. Their contriving brains
can no doubt adapt the propqsi
tiou to the divorso conditions of

Sheriff Sheldon with Deputy
Sheriff King of Makawao return

with 28 tins of opium and in all
-11 empty tins. This is tho re
sult of a trip thoy mado for tho
above purpose. Found on tho
beach. Same old lot as before,
Marshal Brown was soon this
morning concerning the abovo
but had received no official coin
muuication fiom Dnputy Sheriff
Sheldon. He had been previous
ly informed by letter that the two
officers above named had loft
Lahaina iu a whaloboat for
tho purpose of watchiug the
suspicious ajtious of a schooner
which had been 'seen hovoriug
about Lauai, and whose prosenco

hi of a man well known to bo iu
tho business of smuggling opium.
Ho had uot as yet receivod any ro
port from tho olliccis of their trip,
but supposed that tho opium found
was an entirely different lot to that
which they expected to find.

ono friend who is doing well with a
violet farm and applo orchard. Another
lady, no longer young, but with an in
domitablo pluck, compelled by oircum
stancos to mako her own living, started
a lily farm last summer in a reinoto
country villngo in Sussex. I am glad to
say sho is succeeding wonderfully, and
besides her lilies' disposes of eggs,
cream, mushrooms and garden produce,
without difficulty. And my friend was

It has long been a cause of con
troversy among physicinus as to
whether consumption is contagi
ous' or not, and one of tho strong
oat argumouts that it is that has
yot boen producod is tho story of
the fato of tho villagers of Mon
Forty years ago this placo was
ono of tho healthiest villages in
France, whoso inhabitants weto
of superb physical development.
It was discovered about this timo
that the climate (if Muntono was
romnrkably beneficial in cases of
lung diseases, and peoplo afflicted
iu this way Hocked thither fiom
all parts of Europe
Tho natural result was that tho
peoplo, who had hitherto been
engaged in farming, one and all
beook themselves to ministering
in various ways to tho throngs of
invalids. The strong and healthy
women of Mentone became I aim
dresses and washed, without tak
ing the least precautious, tho con
sumptives' clothes. The plnce is
now described as being a "buoil
lus-ridden pest hole." Tho very

Theso aro days of considerable
anxiety and perplexity to all who
havo possessions or other interests
in tho Republic of Hawaii, and it
is timo that our citizens camo to a
mutual understanding ou several
important issues. Tho prospects
for Annexation appear at present
vague and indistinct, and our
destiny cannot be foretold with
certainty. Thero aro those, also,
who still fondly cling to the liopo
of a return to tho old ordor of
things, and who cannot bo nor-
suadod otherwise, yot this out
look appears far moro hazy than
that of Annexation oveu to the
most hopeful disciplos of the
Monarchy. But, fortunately, in
tho midst of nil this uncertainty
thero is solace in the fact that
