been'tllo ciibo in tho quostiou of
ollicial inspeetiou and marking of
tho prodttut. There is not tho
lctist doubt tiiat Mr. Gockburu is
right in claiming thnt this is tho
kuystouo of tho industry in these
islands, lln makes it clear thnt
without an olliuiul guarantee of
genuineness for their product, tho
small colleo farmers are liablo
to bo driven to tho wall. '
Tho interests of tho whole j
country aro at stako in tho ,
matter besides, for, with ' tho
amount or production assured in
the near future, onhauceniont of
tho market value by even one cent
a pound would moan an increased
value of many thblisand dollars
to our annual exports. On tho
other hand, tho coatiuuauco of
tho present haphazard methods of
disposing of the crop will certainly
hurt both tho doniaud and tho
prico, possibly it not probably to
tho extent of making tho industry
unpiolitablo to the owners of
small farms and homesteads. Tho
experience of other countries, in
tho matter of official inspection of
staple commodities, is abundantly
in evidence as to its groat import
ance. Suvoral articles of com-
mercn which enjoy an immenBO
doniaud would ha to been lost
amongst inferior goods of the
same name were it not that they
bore tho official guarantee of
quality from tho countries in
which they wer produced. With
out that means of assuring their
position, indeed, tlieso suponor
olusnen of given btaplos would not
be in the market. It would not
pay to nvtko solectiou of the best
for soparate packing, and pritno,
modium, inferior and oven spur
ious would therefore be in varied
mixture blended. Herring would
' bo herring, whether tho fish were
big or little, only some would bo
pickled anil some smoked. Tho
best would 'be in the heads
of the barrels, or the outsido
layors of tho boxes. Our
inucl' and deservedly vaunted
coffee, if not officially inspected
and guaranteed, Mill in tho same
way appear in market, good and
bad at random, and it will eventu
ally be tho raro cbanco of tho
capital priiso in a lottery if a con
sumer get hold of any Hawaiian
aoll'cn that is genuino.not to .men
tion primo. Now is tho time for
tho indepeudout coffee growers of
tho islands, while they yet retain
thoir independence, to act in this
matter. , Delay is dangerous here
boyond tho general acceptation of
tho proverb, for influences are at
work that will before long put the
situation out of tho control of the
small producers. Whero is tho
Goffeo Planters' Asso-
Wiiile United States Senators

on behalf of intervention in Ouba
contrary to international law, tho

Nothing could bo moro ridicu

propounding of a plau of profit
sharing is a schenio to throw dust
in the eyes of tho American pub

a thing is tho fact that many lead

According to a contemporary an

As a matter of fact, only ono
