Among the many mattora which
will como bofoto tho next Legisla
turo for discussion,, will bo a bill
tojirohibit the sale of oleomarga
rine, buttorino and kindred com
pounds oxcept'uuder legal restric
tions. Tho Batno legislation bas
boon found necessary in tho
United States in order to protect
tbo interests of dairymen and
farmers. It was only a abort time
aftor tbo introduction of oleomar
garine that tbo dairymen of
Dutcbess county in the State of
New York foresaw tbo danger to
tho puro butter making industry
and organized to procure proper
legislation to offsot it. By proper
agitation they succeeded in having
a law passed requiring nil nrtifi
oial butter compounds exposed for
sale anywbero to bo plainly label
led in largo display letters, "oleo
maiariue," "batterine," elo. It
recollection serves tbo writter cor
rectly tbo Statos of New Jersoy
and Ohio passed similar laws soon
after, and tbo bull thus set rolling
was passed from ouo State to the
other, until now it applies to nearly
evory stato and teriitory in tbo
Union. It is now proposed to
have tbo Legislature enact a
similar law for this country'.
That tho necessity for it exists
will bo apparent wbon tho state
ment is mado that an average of
67,000 pounds of buttorino is sold
ovory month in Honolulu alouo.
Just think of it! Throe tons and
a half of imitation butter sold
monthly in this city. And who
uses.it? Not tho Chinese or Jap
anese or Hawaiians, certainly,
for thoy couldn't afford it oven if
they wero accustomed to the use
of butter, which they are not. Tho
Portuguese uso very little butter
for similar reasons, consequently
tho great bulk of the stuff must
And its way into tbo stomachs of
tbo other white roces. Some
body eats it, cortainly, and it
would bo interesting, to say tbo
least, to find out who really gets
away with it.
Ouo of tho largost sourcos of
demand for butteriuo arises from
the Chinese restaurants, but there
are several of those who do not
use it; at least, the proprietors
have told tho writer whence they
obtain thoir butter and have
offered.to show their bills in sup
poitof thoir assertions. These
better-class Cbineso restaurants,
which dopeud mostly on
white patronagq for thoir
oxistonce, uso island butter for the
table. But with these few excep
tions butteriuo is undoubtedly
used by most of tho Chinese res
taurants of tbo city, yet this will
not account for tho consumption
of 07,000 pounds monthly, and
tboso figures como to tbo Bulle
tin from a reliublo source.
A great deal of California but
ter com os to Honolulu, and a great
deal moro would como wero such
exorbitant prices not charged for
it. This California artiolo is re
tailed at anywhere from 70 to 85
cents tbo blook, supposed to con
tain two pounds. Tho very best
artiolo is quoted in tho California
market reports at 20 ceuts por
pound or 40 cents a roll or block,
showing that what is often faceti
ously teimed "tho Hawaiian one
por cent" is mado by someone in
tbo handling of it, and it is very
certain that tho steamship com
panies do not got it all, although
thoir charges for icobouao goods
are largo enough to boar cutting
During bis recont visit to tbo
Stato of Washington, Senator Mc
OandlesB bas been looking into
tbo butter business, with tho view
of opening up a trade in this arti
cle botwoen Hawaii and that Stato.
Ha finds that tbo finest kind of
buttor can bo obtained thoro at
prices ranging from 10 to 21 centsf
and oven loss in some seasons of ,
the year. Ho aud his frionds, ho ,
has several of them in the dairy
business, have become imbued
with tho idea that 'they can place
Washington butter in tho Hono
lulu market at bucIi prices m will
mako it interesting, for tho Cali
fornia article, to say tbo least.
They realizo, however, that good
butter caunot compete with bud
nor tho genuine article with the
artificial, and for that lcason the
Senator proposes to iunugututo
a movement against all kinds of
artificial products sold ns buttor.
It is not deyigned to prohibit tlioir
sale, but only to regit Into it. Tho
Bulletin hopes it will bo regu
lated to such an extent as to require
restaurants to put up a sign show
ing whether oleomugarino or but
torino is usod on tho promises or
not. Tho writer has soon sevoral
such signs in California restaur
ants. Senator McCandless and
tboso who are with bim in this
movement will undoubtedly have
tho full support of the public iu
procuring tho necessary legisla
tion in this direction.

is usod as tho Hawaiian law re
quires. It is not tho souroo but tho
ubo of tho monoy which tbo law is
mado for. If tho Hawaiian Gov

tbo land by dioposiug of tlm
mouoy in any way coutrary to tbo
law's intent such as returniuc it

Ouo of my whito frionds said to

wording. Just so, if the money,
by whatsoever means it may havo

tho law aims at, bow can its hold
ers be refused landing? It is not
right to docido anything on sup

Patriotic as I am, I am not so
onesided as to uphold anything
pertaining to tho Japaucso wheth
er right or wrong. But tho notion
of tho Government in not giving
tho immigrants a sullioient chance
bofore doportiug them is not fair.
It must bo very easy for tho Gov
ernment to find out wbother tho
$50 is used in the way the law ex
pects or not aftor tho landing of
tho possessor. A good Japancso
does not waut tho coming of bad
Japanese, aud it is for tho interest
of tho Japaueso themselves to pre
oludo tboso of disroputablo char
acters from routing iu nmuugHt
them. But tho whole question is
whether the Hawaiian Government
has not exceeded its powor in
acting as it did and is still doing,
instead of giving tho immigrants
a suificiont chance to prove that
thoy aro law-abiding peoplo.
