although thu mnttor bns been

announcement tlmt theHouolnlu
Irou Works will next week com
mence work on a 'big contract
which calls for tlio completion of
about 10,000 feet of steel water
pipe within tbe next six months.
This pipe ranges in size from 18
inches in diameter to 30 inches,
most of it being for Ewa planta
tion, whoro it is to be utilized in
connection with tho now wells
now being sunk. Somo of the
pipo will olso be used on tho La
The manufacture of steol water
pipes is something now for Ho
nolulu, and should it be a success,
and there is no reason to doubt
that it will be, it will add to
tho already world-wido reputation
of tho Honolulu Iron Works as
well aB bo the moans of distribut
ing monthly lorgo sums, princi
pally to Hawaiians, in tho shape
Some time since tho managers
of the Ewa plantation suggested
to tho Iron Works people that
thoy put in a bid on tho necessary
steel pipo for the new pumping
plants to be erected this year,
with the result that tho proposi
tion was favorably considered.
Taking advantago of tho low
price of wrought iron plates in
tlio United States niarkot just pre
vious to the election, thp.proprio-
tors of tho Iron Works secured on
option on a largo quantity of tho
sizes required and put in a bid for
tho work. They woro moro than
surprised to find thoy had under
bid both San Francisco and East
em bidders, and have, of course,
received tho contract. Tho Bulle
tin is not permitted to give figures,
but it can Btato that this contract
alono will give employment to a
largo extra force ot workmen,
principally natives, and that it
means tho disbursement by tho
Honolulu Iron Works of at loast
$20,000 in wagos within tho next
Tho first half of the steel plates
necessary for this contract came
down on tho Australia and tho
balance will arrive on the next
trip. Jamos Lycott will have spe
cial chargo of tho work entailed in
making this pipe and ho will havo
a sufficient forco of experienced
whito men undor him to direct
the work, but tho rest of the labor
noodod will bo Hawaiian.
During the present week tho
men in tho machine shop have
been constructing a new riveting
machine They will know what
it is for when thoy road this arti
cle. It should be understood that tho
process of making steel water-pipo
differs entirely from that employed
in tho manufacture of cast-iron
piping. Tho metal is not run in
to moulds, but the steel plates are
bent into tho proper circular
shapes and tho edges riveted to
gether. Betweon tlio rivets tho
lutorstices are carefully caulked
and soldored and the pipo thus
formed is thou dipped bodily into
a vat containing boiling tar.
To obviate tho immense amount
of labor required for caulking
were- it dono by hand two little
roauhiuos havo been imported,
either of which will accomplish
as much work as six mon. Thoy
aro vory small and look much liko
enlarged specimens of tho pumps
used for inflating bicyole tiros.
Thoy will be run by comprosBod
air and each of them will make
1000 strokes por minute.
To fill this contract successfully
meauB much, not only to tho Ho
nolulu Iron Works but to tho
general community. To tho pro
prietors of tho works it means tho
manufacture of hundreds of thou
sands of dollars' worth of pipo for
the now Oahii plantation alone,
Ill-tides supplying in futuic a I tho
plantations and tlio government
Willi what they need. To tho com
munity it means tlio benefits do
rived by overyouo in tho disburs
iug of large Bums of money among
the wage-earning classes.

prise which makes such an under

New York, February y. The
Sun has the following from Wash
ington: Tho Hawaiian question
was rovived iu the Senute this
afternoon by Senator Fryo of
Maino. He introduced an amend
ment to tho sundry civil bill np
propriating $100,000 for tho im
provement of Pearl harbor. For
tho Unitod States to spend mouoy
iu tho improvement of Pearl har
bor would be, in the opinion of
the Senator, an act of sovereignty
which, if allowed to proceed, would
establish the fnct of Amoricau
In discussing tho subject todny
he said: "I havo soveral objects
in introducing this amondment.
Ouo of theto is that I believe it
will bo well for tho United States
to exercise an act of sovereignty
iu Pearl harbor. Our jurisdiction
over Pcnrl harboi dates from tho
convention of 1887. I do not
imngino that any objection would
bo mado by tho present Govern
meut of Hawaii to tho exerciso of
sovereignty by tho United Statos.
At auy rate, it will do no harm to
make tho attempt.
"But this is not tho only rea
son why I introduced tho nuiond
niout. I think it is high timu that
Pearl harbor should bo fitted for
tho objects intended under tho
convention through which it came
undor American control. This is
the finest harbor in the Paoific.
It is big enough to float both tho
American and British navies
without crowding, and tho only
thing nooded to make it available
is to cloar away tho bar at its
mouth, which Admiral Walkor
has reported can be dono at a cost
of 3100,000 at tho outside. It is
too early to talk about annexation,
but if tho islands are over to bo
annexed, of courso it would bo an
advantago to havo tho harbor im
proved. Whou tho amondment
comos up it may bring on moro or
less of debate about annoxatiou."
"Do you think tho country is
still favorahlo to annexation I "
"I havo no doubt of it. Not
much may be said now, but if tho
question should bo brought up so
riously you would quickly dis
cover what tho fooling was."
"But how about tho roport that
Mr. McKinley is opposed to an
nexation ? "
"I do not boliovo ho over said
anything of tho kind, but I havo
no doubt tho sugar intoresta nro
as hostile to annexation as they
havo boon all along. Tho opposi
tion from the beginning has been
due chiofly to sugar. I am not so
sure but that the Unitod Statos
will bo compelled to tako the isl
ands whether thoy aro wanted or
not. Japan is lookiug that way,
and tho Japanoso on tho islands
are beginning to agitate for suff
rage, which would put them in
