BRITISH WEST INDIES.
Roadora of this papor know
about tho British commission Bent
aoino mouths ago to inveHtigate
tho depression iu the West Indies.
Tho commissioners havo now ro
turncd to London, and by any
futuro mail wo may got tho sub
stance of their conclusions. In
tho mpuuwhilo a correspondent,
described in tho British Trade
Review as ''evidently well-inform
ed," ha3 given tho Standard a
forccust of what he considers will
likely be the recommendations of
Sir Henry Norman and his col
leagues. Thoy are not likely to
coinoido with tho desire of the
"West India committee, who are in
favor of a countervailing duty on
bounty-fed sugar imported into
the United Kingdom. It would
roally bo no use for the commis
sioners, if they were inclined to
itlfat idea, for Parliament cannot
' be swerved from tho nation's set
tled policy regarding protection.
It is much ruoro likely "that tho
commibbioners will advise drastic
remgnuization iu tho West
Indies, with the object of lessen
ing tho uutnbor of independent
admiuistrutious,and greatly reduc
ing an olliuial expenditure which
has altogether outgrown tho finan
cial nbility of at lonst somo of the
colonies." That there is scope for
retrenchment in tho government
of those colonies may bo bupposed
from the tact that tho six inlands
have as mauy governors at sala
ries aggregating $110,000 a year,
or more than SI 500 a mouth for
each goveruoi .The governor of Bar
bados goU, outsiilo of his salary,
$8000 a year as "table allowance."
Ono of tho commissioners is an
expert botanist from the Royal
Gardens at Euw, and with his
assistance the report will set forth
. tho methods by which other in
dustries than tho cultivation and
manufactuit) of. sugar may bo
created and fostered. Questions
of labor and Innd sottlf-mont will
be discussed, these having tho
groator urgoncy from the fact that
many Iaborors are, owiug to tho
depression, being released from
the sugar estates. It will in this
connection probably be left for
the Home government to decide
in the event of sugar estates be
ing abandoned faster than is
hoped will be the case whether
tho East India coolies should bo
sent back to their nativo land or,
what is preferable for the coolie
1 and cheaper for tho government,
sallied on tho onormous areas of
unoocupied laud. Many items of
internal development will also be
submitted by tho commission, and
any comprehensive scheme of re
lief will involve drafts on the Im
Commenting on tho investiga
tion of thecommission,the Louisi-
t ana Planter intimates that the
West India planters have not kept
! up with tho progress of tho in-
f' dnstry. "Twenty years ago tho
bulk of tho sugar houses in
Louisiana were of tho old-fashioned,
opeu kottlc type, such as now
prevail generally in the British
West Indies," the Planter says
A and, aftor showing how the Louisi-
i ana planters have' progress-
' ed, cornea to this circluaion:
"Iu sugar manufacture there
must be a divorce of the factory
from the farm. The same parties
may be interested in each, may
own each, but unlesB they aro
carriod on separately, tho cost
of cane production cannot bo de-
uorraiueu nor uuu iuu uubiui miiar
manufacture. Tho whole world
'of small proprietors would ongago
in cano-growing in the tropics if
ithey woro auro of roceiving at tho
factory nn much for their cane ns
tho total cost of such cauo whou
produced directly undpr tho fac
tory owner's management." There
is a hint iu this last observation
which may bo useful in solving tho
problems coming up in tho Hawai

TWO NARROW EHCAI'I'S.
Peculiar Aceldout In Unloading the
Bark Ilianioiid Ilertd.
At 10 minutes to 12 o'clock yes
terday morning while John Wilder
was standing near tho safe in the
office of Wilder & Co. something
came crashing through the window,
whizzed over his head and fell to
the lloor near by, while broken
glass was scattered about in all
directions. He picked it up and
found it to be a bioken link about
two inches long that had evidently
formed part of an iron chain.
Investigation showed that it camo
from tho baik Diamond Head, at
Allen & Robinson's wharf, having
taken a circle from the
ship, over Hopper's mill, to the
rear window of Wilder's office,
going through tho upper sash.
Lumber was being unloaded from
the Diamond Head in slingfuls by
means of a chain which dragged
it through a port hole and was
connected with the donkey engine
by a block and tackle. A sling of
lumber in passiug through tho
port hole got jammed and before
the steam could be shut off the
chain parted. Tho broken link
sailed through the air into Wilder's
store. The block was sont whirl
ing past George Allen's head, just
missing him by about three inches.
Both men had narrow escapes, es
pecially Allen, whose head would
have been crushod like an egg
shell had ho been struck by tho
block. Five dollars' worth of glass
will pay tho damago done to Wild
er's office but not to John Wilder's

The holidays are over and
the community is settling
down to business again. The
three hottest months of the
year are at hand and many
people are thinking of discard
ing the use of coal and wood
stoves for the summer. To all
such we can recommend the
well-known and justly popular
Blue Flame Oil Stoves, of
which we have just received a
fresh supply. We can furnish
these in three sizes now, the
new size being a smaller and
cheaper edition of the others.
The Dietz Stove Company
