5)( Eueiii?$ Bulletin,
DANIEL LOGAN, Editor.
SATURDAY, JULY 24, 1897.
A friend in Komi has lent the
Bulletin a copy of a "Report on
ColToo Culture in tbo Hawaiian
Islands," belonging to the mis-
cellaneoua series of tho British
Foreign Office papers. It is, writ
ton by Oousel General A. G. S
Ilawea, who, in forwarding the
document to tho Marquess of
Salisbury, acknowledge mo as
sistance of Charles D. Millor and
A. Cockburn in preparing it. Tho
report is n thoroughly practical
one uii'l the author ovinces con
fidenco that coffee culturo has a
great future in those islnods.
Our correspondent who for
wards the pamphlet takes occa
eiou to make some suggestions in
substance us follows. Coffee
planters ought to be impressed
with the importance of careful
work in harvesting this year's
crop. There is a great gain in
weight from picking tho beans
only when fully ripe when
they have attained a datk
browuy shade. Some author
ities put this gain of the
ripe over tho partially matured
beans at from one-third to one
fifth. In other words 100 pounds
of beans irregularly picked, in the
corelesa manner hitherto much in
voini, would bo surpassed in
weight by 20 pounds for a like
quantity if patience and care were
observed. Let someone estimate
tho Iosb over these past years
to tho growth, and hence
to the country and government.
Consider also tho Iohh to quality
in consequence of this bad hus
bandry, with tho great deprecia
tion in value therefrom.
Another point is that every
grower should have explained to
him that the more profitable me
thod after picking, pulping, wash
ing and thoroughly drying his
coffee is not to attempt to mill it
himself, but to forward it to the
central depots or cleaning mills
established in the country, and
thereby obtain tho price of the
best. Native farm-cleaned coffeo
sells in San Francisco at from
15c. to 10'c. a pound, against 18c.
for island coffee cleaned by
the large central mills.
Our correspondent thinks that
it is for the Government in some
way to scatter broadcast among
the smaller and stiuggling grow
ers the much needed guidance on

authority, that a grade of coffee

hundredweight. This was likely
Bomewhat low grade coffee, bat
all coffees aro falling, and it is
only tho finest grades that can
command a profitable figure. So
much the moro reason, therefore,
for the most intelligent modek of
preparing our coffeo for market.
Food for thought is presented
in an article on!'Municipal Owner
ship" elsewhere. 'There is tho
satisfied experience of many cities
in favor of an expansion instead
of a contraction of municipal ent
eipriue. Those who would have

tion. So far as the 5th of July parade
is concerned, tho Bulletin stands
corrocted regarding an invitation
to tho Japnuose cruiser's officers.
They wore invited to participate

Gus plants aro operated by 1G8
cities of England aud Scotland,
including almost every city of
consequence except London; by
333 cities of Germany, including
thirty of the largest, such aa
Berlin, Hamburg and Dresden;
by Brussels, by Amsterdam, by
many cities in the British colonies,
and by 12 1 Amorican cities, in
cluding Whooliug, Louisville,
Richmond and Philadelphia.
Electric lighting plants aro
operated by over 200 American

Springfield, Littlo Rock, Topoka,

by many Butish cities; by some

by thirteen German cities, includ
ing Hamburg and Dresdou.
Streot railroads uro owned aud
operated in 3'J citios of England
and Scotland, by some cities of
Germany, Switzerland, Holland
and of the Australian colonies, by
Toronto, and iu a measure, by"
New Orleans. To put tho matter
into condensed form, municipal
ownorship of one or moro of these
street franchises prevails in over
700 cities, and is authorized by
the laws of a score of states and
couutrios. Time was whon pri
vate ownership of all street
franchises was the rule. Now the
chiefost cities of tho world aro
forsaking it. Progress in the art
of municipal affairs is all in tho
direction of municipal ownership.
Municipal ownership iB, theru
foie, no new or over radical thing.
It is neither socialistic, commu
nistic, nor populistic. It is feasi
ble and practicable. It inuBt be
at least reasonably successful, and
it cannot bo attended with any
grcator political evils than the no
more universal municipal owner
ship of docks, ferries, bridges,
markets and the water supply.
So much tho experience of theso
other cities indicates to us. From

"In time of peace prepare
for war" is an- excellent adage,
and one which the United
States evidently believed in
when the new nayy was built.
We in Hawaii have especial
reason to be thankful that in
times of peace such a magni
ficent specimen of marine ar
chitecture as the battleship
Oregon was made leady for
such emergencies as the pres
ent, and should take the lesson
to heart, not alone in national
affairs but in those of the
household. Suppose the Japa
nese fleet should blockade Ho
nolulu, for instance, we should
soon find ourselves mn

household necessaiies other
