FIGURES THAT TELL.
No paper iu tho United States
is doing bettor work iu show
ing tho voluo of Hawaiian con
nections than tho San Francisco
Examinor. Pursuing its argu
ment on the "balanco of trade"
quostion in a rccont issue, it gives
tables of imports from, and
domestic exports to Hawaii, also
tho imports and exports of gold
and silver, including bullion, for
the years 1877 to 189G, inclusive.
In those twenty years the imports
of morchandiso wore of a value of
$170,144,801, and exports of $G2,
G87,34G. This left an appaiont
"balanco of trado" of $107,557,455
to bo settled in coin for tho twenty
yearB of tho reciprocity treaty.
The actual shipments of gold and
silvor wore, from Hawaii, $1,170,
(07, and to Hawaii, $10,758,298.
Upon this showing, the Examiner
proceeds to say:
This is, wo sent 10,753,298 of
.gold and silvor to Hawaii in the
twenty years of the reciprocity
treaty and got $l,17O,G07 hack.
Tho remaining $9,588 G91 is what
wo scut to settlo that "ad verso
balance of trade" of $107,557,455
over which tho opponents of tho
troaty raise such a cry.
It is thus evident that under tho
operations of tho Reciprocity
treaty we got 8170,144,801 worth
of goods iu exchaugo for $02,587,
34G in trado and $9,588,091 iu the
precious metals. It will doubt-
loss puzzle tho holdors of tho
"balauco of trade" theories to un
derstand what has become of the
other $97,908,704 that they have
imagined iu somo way to be
"against us." Thero is no mystery
ubout it. That sum is the profit
of the trade to the United
States, and for tho most
part to California. It has
gouo to the business men who
dealt in Hawaiian products; it is
in part tho return for tho invest
ment of American capital in the
island; it is the tribute that a
debtor nation pays to tho creditor
nation. It is these millions that
have built a fleet to carry com
merce, that aro laying tho rails of
tho Valley road, that aro pnttinc
up tho Spreekels Building and
other great structures in this
city, that have built up our com
morco in a thousand ways that
cannot bo traced.
To cut oil this trade with Ha
waii is to sweep away one-fourth
or one-fifth of tho external com
merce of the port. California
cannot afford a bit of folly like
There is an ond of conflicting
jurisdiction between Federal and
State quarantine officials at San
Francisco. It has been decided
at Washington that only tho per
mission of the Federal quarantine
officer is necessary to allow a ves
sel to ontor at the Customs, and
that the local authorities havo not
tho right of priority of inspection.
Passongers arriving at that port
havo often been subjected to vexa
tious delays iu lauding, besides
tho annoyanco of having their
health inspected twice. Lately a
steamer from Panama was passed
by ouo doctor only to havo an
other doctor order her iuto quar
antine. Such a confused state of
affairs is now terminated.

HOUSEHOLD AND DAIRY.
The long continued drouth
of this year has necessarily
affected dairies, especially on
this island, and its continuance
bids fair to seriously affect the
milk supply. Consequently it
behooves dairymen to be more
economical than ever in order
to make both ends meet before
the next rainy season. In no
way can economy be practised
to better advantage than in
using the Alpha-De Laval
Cream Separators. Here
are a few of the advantages to
be gained from their use:
1. Save 10 percent, to 0
percent, in skimming. 2. Save
S percent, to 10 percent, in
churning. 3. Increase butter
value 5 percent, to 50 percent.
4. Save time and labor. $. Save
ice and water. 6. Insure purity
of product. 7. Remove tuber
culosis and disease germs.
8. Give a much superior cream.
9. Give cream of any desired
density. 10. Give warm, fresh,
sweet skim-milk. 11. Obviate
"scours" in calves. 12. Give
the best aeration. 13. Do away
with taints and odors. 14. En

Save women's and housework.
16. Save one-half time in

handling of ice. 18. Save milk

washing and care of utensils.
