Tlmt is a very lugubrious show
ing that itj luudo iu tho evidence
taken by tho British commission
to investigate tho West Iutlin
sugar industry. It would apppnr
that tho cano planters nro decided
to strike their llags to tho compe
tition of European bounty-Ted
sugar. Nothing will prevent their
full rotrout but special protection
from the Home Qovornmont to
countervail that competition. This
they uro very unlikely to get. The
Imperial GoYemment will uovor
modify its policy for tho sake of
an isolated industry, in a singlo
colonial dependency at that. They
have chonper labor in tho British
West Indies than tho Hawaiian
planters have. Yet it does not
save them under the present stress
of compotitiou and low prices.
Hawaii's salvation, if it is to bo
secured in tho event of losing the
protection of American recipro
city, wnl rest mainly upon Iho
advanced mothods of cultivation
and manufacture which, for many
years, have been steadfastly pur
sued by our planters. Some sys
tem of profit alluring or voluntary
work by intelligent fanners on
small allotments of laud should
bo the next improvement striven
after, with a view to getting rid of
tho present vexatious and national
ly perilous system of con tract coolio
labor altogether. "No surreudor"
should, at all oveuts, bo the motto
of Hhwiu iu facing tho worst pos
sibilities tho futuro may havo iu
store. While other industries aro
coining up promisingly, they
should be reguuled still as but
auxiliaries, and not substitutes for
the sugar industry. Should,
however, the United States throw
Hawaii overboard, this country i
uuhko the British West Indies, is
not without the means of bolt help.
Should tho perfection of its sugar
industry in methods and tho in
auguration of a self-regulating
labor system not suffice to weather
tho storm, thou Hawaii will only
havo to resort to measures of
protection available and these
considerably nt tho expense of tho
United States. Import dutios may
bo laid upon nil American
goods now entering froo by troaty,
and, out of tho iucreuBed revouuo
thus provided, Hawaii can afford
a bounty to its sugar largo ouough
to save tho country from destruc
tion. Tho price of domestic beet
Eugnr in tiio United States would
btill bo governed by tho markots
of tho world, so that it would not
banefit u particle by tho dutieB
on Hawaiian sugar. At the Bame
time American consuuiors woukl
out of their own pockets pay tho
duties, whoso remission to Hawaii
is now argued by tho enemies of
Jho treaty to be a gift. American
sugar would still havo the compo
titiou of tho Hawaiian product
of nncossity greatly increased in
voiuinn besides sustained by sub
sidies chiolly obtained from thu
taxation of Auioricau commerce.
A nrinteil copy has boon ro
ouivpcl of a potition, with tho
i(imiturc4 attached, from Han
I'ihuuIbco to tho United Slates
Congress against tho abrogation
of tho troaty between tho United
States and Hawaii. Its argument
and statistics aro idontical with
thoso lately printed in tho Finan
cial Lottor aud republished iu tho
Bulletin. Thoro aro 27G signa
tures to tho petition, headed by
tho Chamber of Commerce, and n
noto at tho end of tho documont
says: "Your attoutiou is respect
fully solicited to the faot, that tins
potition has boon signed by tho
most prominent bankors, capital
ists, niorchauts, business mou in
general, wino producers, and
othors, representing tho largest
interests of tho Pacific Coast.
Nothing more weighty iu behalf
of tho treaty could bo desired

alarm at Japanese immigration.
Lately Rev. Mr. Maxwell, a mem
bor of the Dominion parliament,
presented iu that body a numer
ously signed potition from that
province on tho subject. It states
that tho largo influx of Japaueso
is a seriouB mouaco to tho pros
perity and material development
of Canada; that tho Jnpaneso nrol
accustomed to a low standard of
living, and aro therefore willing
to accept a lower scalo of wages;
that they aro seriously competing
with white labor, and indeed in
many casos lending to tho exclu
sion of white laborers.

progress to have Harry AVurner
of Toronto give exhibitions of

A FEW NOVELTIES FOR
By the Australia we haye
received some novelties in
Kitchen utensils whicch will
be appreciated by all Mono
lulu housekeepers on sight.
The Champion Roaster
is handy, convenient and cheap.
It is a portable oven designed
to be placed on top of an or
dinary cooking stove. It will
bake anything in the shape of
fish, flesh or fowl and for
cooking cake it is unequalled.
It can be moved about while
the cooking is going on and
the heat regulated to a nicety.
They cost just an even 2.50.
Stroud's Self Basting
Pan is another useful novelty.
It consists of an enameled dish
or cooking pan which sets in
side another in which the hot
water is held. It can be used
inside an oven or on top of
the stove. Its price is $1.50
Telescope Coffee Pots
we have advertised before and
their merits are known. They
are absolutely the best in use
and that is saying a good deal.
We have a fresh supply of
them on hand in several sizes.
We have also received by
this steamer a fresh invoice of
the Blue Flame Oil Stoves
in two sizes, either three or
four burners, which we are
selling now at $22 and $2$

This is n serious question,
ono at which somo folkaHake
ollbnso, yet salesmen nre under
the necessity of asking it.
Some folks deal near home,
settle infrequently, never in
vestigate to sec whether they
pay more than they should and
too often nllow their accounts to
go long over due. If you don't
enre what the family expenses
are it's a poor way to do if you
want to leave your children in
ailluont circumstances when
you aro gone. Now it is quito
an advantage to have an open
account at a well-known house,
who can execute your order
promptly. Often persons say
thoy don't want an account and
will pay in a few days. But
we cannot keep memoranda of
charges; it isn't safo or good
business. The stock found in
ordinary stores is usually stale,
uninviting and inferior, while
tho stock in our store is turned
so frequently and so carefully
watched that it is at all tithes
fresh. Our stock in trade con

cacies from every civilized na
