SUGAR BEET AGE.
Several farmers near Greenock,
Scotland, have succeeded in de
monstrating the possibility of
growing sugar beets in that coun
try at a profit on a commercial
scale. It had formorly been prov
ed that thoy could bo grown there
with an equal, or even higher,
percentage of saccharine than is
obtained in Germany aud France.
Yet tho industry had not attained
considerable commercial propor
tions, owing to tho bounties paid
on the continent and the fact that
tho sugar refining industry hast
for some time, boon in a bad way
in the Unitod Kingdom. The
enterprise of the Greenock farm
ers just mentioned is taken by the
Scotch press as proviug that,
where looal circumstances aro fav
orable, the crop can be profitably
cultivated in tho British islands.
One paper suggests that the culti
vation of other neglected products
thero, among them mentioning
chicory, might bo taken up with
better chances of success now than
formerly owing to discoveries in
science applied to farming. "There
are records in tho Doomsday
Hook," it says, "that at one time
thero were oxtensivo vineyards in
most of the southorn. counties of
England, but Lord Bute's attempt
at growing British wine near
Cardiff is tho only instance of
modern porsovorance in this di
rection, and it is said his produc
tion last season will more than
pay exponses for several years."
With tho spread of the sugar beet
all over the temporato regions of
the globo, it may be expeoted that
tbe sugar market will not develop
rising febrile symptoms within an
early period. What cane sugar
needs, in addition to its steadily
advancing scionco of production,
is a systematic propaganda of its
superior v.irtues ovor tho "boot pro
duct. Incidentally to tho present
discussion of tho Hawaiian treaty
in tho States, it is to bo noticod,
somo papers aro uttering tho horo
sy that beot sugar is not only
equal but superior to cane sugar.
This is capablo of crushing scien
tific refutation, but desultory
work in that regard is useless.
Thoro needs to be a strenuous
campaign baoked with tho sinews
of war, and a chiof end aimed at
should bo the onaotment of laws
compelling tho sale of all sugars
under truo distinctive brands.
That onco effected, in addition to
universal demonstration of tho
superiority of oano sugar, the
prices current cverywhoro would
havo sugars of ovory origin in
their own distinctive column, and
cano sugar would simply bo above
tho piano of competition in sac
All who aro eligible as voters
ought to co mo up promptly for
registration. There are many such
whoso duty has not been done,
and the time is slipping past. Tho
franchise is a publio, even a
sacred trust, and, while thero may
be some excuse for men who have
lost tho privilege for tho nonce by
inadvertent neglect of the qualifi
cations, thoro is nothing but rep
rehension due to men who being
possessed of the requisite qualifi
cations are too indolent or in
different to be registered. None
who havo only themselves to
blamo for having no vote to record
when election day arrives can
have any cause of finding fault
with either the men who go into
tho Legislature or the work that
they do or leave undone while
thoro. Supporters of the Repub
lic ought to cultivate some of the
enthusiasm that its progenitors
had at its birth. Why the need for
this advice it is not the purpose
here to discuss. Reasons would
at least be only speculative.
Sufficient to say that enthusiasm
is lacking,- but without evidence
that thero is dissatisfaction with
affairs. If the Ropublio were in
any danger from within or with
out, or the law and order
it represents threatened, there
would be an instant springing to
its support of a greater number
than ever stood by it in its gravest
emergencies hitherto. It should
be remembered, however, that
coldness of the body in sunshiny
weather is a symptom that needs
correction. In the case aof the
body politic, as in that of the
human corporation, it may denote
excessive indulgences. The faot
is that tho Hawaiian community
has been so free from steady ills
and sudden calamities, suoh as
form the burden of periodical
tidings from othor countries, that
it is actually spoiling with peaco
and prosperity. Beware that
carelessness and inertia bred by
these conditions become not
causes of their serious impair
ment. At least let all who are
qualified to take their part in the
high functions of government
make sure that tbey do not lose
the invaluable privilege by gross
contempt for its eieroiso or sheer
laziness equally criminal.
