SATURDAY, FEB. 27, 1897.
An apponl has boon sout from
California to tho Secretary of tho
Navy, asking for a steamship to
convoy gifts of grain, aocuiuulat
ing fiom various States, for tho
starving people of India. M. H.
do Young, propriotor of tho Sau
Francisco Chrouiclo, shaped and
sent tho appeal from Now York
Ho suid that tho starving and dy
ing inhabitant of India appeal to
tho generosity of all nations, and
that tho Government of tho Unit
ed States in provious years has
been foremost in extending suc
cor to tho distressed of other na
tions. Hawaii with hor abound
ing prosperity has not beon heard
from yot in tho protfer of any con
tribution to tho famine sufferers.
Could our wealthy plantations not
each contributo a feu bags of sugar
to be sold for the Indian famino
fund at San Francisco? A money
subscription amoug tho pcoplo
generally might also bo oponed
for the same holy objoot.
It is learned that tho con
troversy between tho Onhu Sugar
CompauyV officers and the Gov
ernment rolatos to tho scope
of operations to bo allowed iu tho
corporutiun's chartor. Mr. King,
Minister of tho Intorior, advised
by Mr. Coopor, the acting Attorney-lieuoral,
is of opinion that
tho company should not havo
power to own aud-control rail
ways, other than those upon tho
plantation, or to do n gpneral
merchandise business, or to own
and run steamships. The Gov
ernment is making tho caso of the
Oahu a tost ouc, deeming it timely
to have limitations of tho Corpor
ations Act defined. Without
having seen tho incorporation
papers of tho company thoBi'Li.i:
tin cannot discuss tho merits of
the controversy -and probably
would not whilo tho caso was be
fore tho courts anyway but it
doos think that tho Government is
doing tho right thing iu having
the general principle settled.
Emporor William, at a recent
pailiamentary dinnor, strongly
urged that tho strength of tho
Geimau navy bo increased and
advocated a coalition of tho Con
sen otives, Imperialists and Na
tional Liberals in order to carry
out this patriotio work, saying:
"If this very importaut object is
to bo attained, all party difToreuces
must bo put aside." With hor
gieat and growing foreign com
merce, Gormany requires a large
navy more, perhaps, than so muoh
of a standing army as hug main
tains. At latest advices smallpox was
raging in Japan. Yokohama has
not only a considerable share of
that infliction, but has a mild
epidemic of oven to be more
dreaded diphtheria on hand.Evory
precaution is being taken by the
Cauadiau authorities, a Victoria
dispatch says, to prevent infection
from Japan. Tho Hawaiian
authorities ueedevon moro than
tho Canadian to keep their eyes
It is not a bad sign for "closer
relations" that tho Sonata com
mittee on foreign relations has
agreed to report favorably Senator
Fryo'fl amoudmout to tho buudry
civil appropriation bill, appropri
ating $100,000 for tho improve
ment of Pearl harbor, Hawaiian
. It has beon decided by tho
United States Court in Illinois
that tho tolophouo switch to do
away M'ith tho call boll is no
novolty. Tho (Incision ought to
tond to a reduction in the cost of
f Latoly tho dynamite cruiser
Yiisurius run a strung naval
1 blockade at Charleston with the
; groatost of ease. It is well to
! havo such possibilities demon
strated in timo of peace.
Mute Hotiiitlro on llvct Mienr-
Nowspapors in Wisconsin and
Minnesota are discussing tho po
licy of encouraging tho niauu
facluro of beet sugar through the
offering of State bounties. Tho
oxperimont has bocu tried iu
Wisconsin with only puitinl sue
cess. A law was enacted in Min
nesota in 18U1, giving 1 cent a
pound iu the form of bounty, but
up to tho present time not a fac
tory has been built. ' As the law
only gives a bounty on the sugar
product, there is no inducement
to raise beets for sugar-mnking
purposes until tho factory is ready
for operation. Probably one
reasou why no factories have boon
built in Minnosota is tho uncer
tainty as to the continuance of the
bounty. Conditions would havo
to bo moro than ordinarily favora
ble to tempt capital to invest in a
beot-sugar factory without eomo
aid from the Government.
Tho Minneapolis Times says tho
policy of offering bounties should
not be encouraged. If the beet
sugar industry will uot hold its ou u
in that State, it should, iu tho
opinion of that journal, bo allow
ed to remain among unprofitablo
industries. An error in tho argu
ment of the Times is found iu the
fact that Anieiican sugar comes
in competition with foreign
sugar of which governments pay
a proportion of the cost. The ob
ject of foreiqn governments iu
paying bounties on oxpoits of
sugar is "to build up a
valuable industry. Tho in
dustry would be as valuable for
Minnosota as for Germany if tho
otate would pay as' laigo a pro
portion of the cost of production
as Germany pays. A bolter way
to foster the beet-sugar industry
is to impose dutie3 on all foreign
sugars, with an additional duty
on sugar from sugar exporting
countries equal to tho bounty
paid by tho governments. l'io
toction would be moio likely to
bo permanent in tho form of
duties than of bounty.
The Federal Aduiiuistiation
changes but onco iu four years,
and an incoming Administration
would hesitate at a proposition
which would kill an important in
dustry. When tho McJvinley ta-
iiu iuuiv uiu u in iet uu augur, nil i
equal decreo of protection was
provmed in inn way on nonuty.
But the Cleveland administration
ropealed tho bounty clauso in tho
McKinloy act, aud for a timo loft
sugar without protection. There
is now a reasonable assurance that
a duty of from a cent to a'cont
and a half a pouud will be placed
ou sugar in tho now tariff. This
rato of duty will cause beet-sugar
factories to bo built in all parts of
California. San Francisco Bulle

On Monday, March 1, E. W.
Jordan will begin another big sale.
During tho past week it has been
laces. This sale has proved such
a large drawing card that Mr.
Joiduu has decided to offer each
week a big reduction on certain
lines of goods. Tho coming week
it will be dress silks. Ovor 3000
yards of theso goods will be plac
ed on a special counter aud offer
ed for sale at the sweeping reduc
tion of 75 per cent., and one wook
is the time that Mr. Jordan binds
himself to this agreement. Ono
dollar silks for 25 cents is not of
fered every day, aud tho Bulletin
predicts that those 3000 yards will
be sold befsro March 0.

Tho second number of tho Ko
mi Echo is to baud. Uudcr the
heading, "Hamakua vs. Kona," it
"There has beon a good deal
heard of late about tho district of
Hamakua us an ideal spot to raise
cqffeo. It s'eoms a triilo strance,
this talk about superiority. Wo
would have it borno in mind that
Hamakua, and ovory other partof
this and the other laigo islands
whioh seemed suited to coffee cul
tivation, had entered into that
iudustry somo thirty years ago.
Kona was uot alone. But of all
tho difforoiit districts of tho dif
ferent islands it alone is lemem-
i bored as the coffoo country. You
may hear Kona coll'oo spoken of
in America, in England or in Gor
many as having beon second to
nono. No ono over heard of Ha
makua coffee outside these islands.
Nor can tho oxcelleuce of tho
Kona articlu be wondered at.
With a climate mild, sunny, tho
winds aud latns gentle, it would
be treating kind nature scurvily
woro our coffeo shrubs to send
forth anything but the best fruits.
There is no desire ou our part to
belittle tho district spoken of; wo
! but aim to give honor whore
honor is very much duo."
