What tlio bfU.irriN liing ago
prp-iii-ti'd repiuling llio heet sugar
boom iu tin United States is com
inn; l' ptiH8,tlioUli perhaps earlier
tlinu might hiivo boou oxpecled, in
tho fioldu oC Chiuo, California.
Tlio millowuor has boou confrout
od with n demand for fnir prices
from tho farmer with tho altor
nativo of buying tho supply of
bei tB cut off entirely. Tl.i ; the
sung upon which tho iiuliirttry
struck in earlier stages back EiiBt.
Tho fanners cannot go on severe
ly taxing tho fertility of their soil
to raise- boots for the prices that
tho sugar nmuufiiolurors nro will
ing to give after they have the
fanners where they think they
want them. -There really would
seem to bo a fair uveiayo of mar
ket valuo for products in general
demand, so that when ono is
boomed to the neglect of others
thoro is an enhancement of value,
in the courso of time, to tho ueg
looted ouos which will attract re
newed attention to them whenever
prices are cut in tho first product
favored. A general rush into
sujar beut cultivation, under public-
or private stimuli!-, or both to
aother as now is the ruse iu Ame
rica, will ultimately result in re
ducing the profits of tho iudustry
to the common piano of those
from thfl raising of oth"r agricul
tural staples. It Hawaiian soil
all over could produce ood hard
wheat, and tho world's wheat
market stiffened to the old dollar
n bushel rate with a reasonable
pros'peet of permanency, it would
take much hurder work than is
now required to promote new
sugar plantations, with sugar
. hanging a little above three cents,
even with the American market
free to Hawaiian sugar and
other sugars liaviug to pay duty.
An industry, moreover, that re
quires tho taxation of cognate in
dustries for its sustenance is not
likely for a jjreat while to hold a
claim for being given an unusual
scale of profit, especially in a
country of democratic government
wherein every interest maintains
watchful jealousy toward all others
regarding the bestowal oE public
favors. At the samo time, while
protection to homo industries is a
cardinal polioy in the United
.States, sugar is likely to hold its
share of tariff, if not bounty, nou
rishment, even though there might
be no hopo of tho country's pro
duction of the articlo over over
taking its consumption. Eevenue
beiug yielded by the protective
duties affords an additional reason
for maintaining them, especially
Biuce tho price of the artiolo is so
low iu comparison with former
times that the tax cau hardly be
called a burden. It is even from
the freo trade standpoint a neces
sary evil, so long as tho world's
sugar market coutinuea to bo de
pressed by the artificial stimulus
of bounties in Europe. "Wore the
sugar market allowed to come to
n natural basis by tho abrogation
of bounties on production and ex
port everywhere, tho producers of
sugar in tho United States would
requiro but littlo protection of im
port duties, aud tho Hawaiian Isl
ands would not need to be alarmed
over periodical threats of abroga
tion of tho reciprocity treaty with
tho United States. While things
are as they are, howovor, there is
not enough iu beet sugar for tho
groworB of the raw matorial in the
United States, to make it at all
probable that there will bo a gen
eral stampede from tho raising of
other agricultural staples in that
country to givo tho sugar beot in
dustry moro than tho natural
development to which it is entitled.
Such n dnvelopnimil will, II i nnfo
to nay, not for a grmi many "
to como bring the pioduclion of
sugar in tho foiled StaluH up to
tho coiiHiimiilioii. The ralio of
Piiiiniiiiiiillnn liriH been constantly

It is high time tho authorities
looked aftor the transportation of
giant powder through tho town.
Drays and Tans aro loadod with it
so hoavily that the horses can
barely haul tho burdons at their
living best upon the dead levels
of tho lower stroots. When tho
steep hills leading to tho powder
uvtgaziue are roached the hauling
lifetimes a painful sight that ought
to bo seen by the agent of the S. P.
0. A. Yesterday, forJnstanco, it
took a horse attached to
one van tho greater part of two
hours to be worked zigzag
fashion from Berotunia street the
quarter of a milo to. its destina
tion. It is not uncommon to spo
part of a load loft piled up on the
side of the stroet, iu front of
dwellniuB mid without a caretaker,
wlule tlio to i ins tor gts the rest
of the load to tlio inngHzino.
There is more than cruolty to ani
niuls in the traiiHpnrUlinn, as car
ried on, of this dreadful ex
plosive. Should the abused horne
lvbul and wheel round down the
mountain slope, there would bo
Jinbility of nn oxplosion from con
cussion which would sproid doath
a d devastation f r u mile
arouud. Drivers are sometimes
seen smoking on tho loads
as thoy whip their charges
up the inolino, or place them
standing athwart the road for a
breathing spell. It is said by
those who have knowledge of the
packing of giant powder that
grains of tho explosivo sometimes
adhoro to tho joiuts of tho cases.
A very little of the matorial ignit
ed might explode tho mass of a
load, aud tho sawdust packing
dribbling out, as it has beau seen
to do along our streets, makes an
inviting tinder for a lighted
match or cigar stump carelessly
dropped to catch. Siuce the Gov
ernment refuses to mako a sign
toward the removal of the powder
magazine from tho midst of a
populqus section, tho least it can
do is to soo that tho carriage of
explosives to and from tho de
pository is conduoted with due
regard to life and property.
A dispatch talks of permission
going to be asked of tho British
Government to dock the United
States battleship Indiana at Hali
fax. As the Halifax dock is open
to busiuoss from all comers, tho
directors will be only too glad to
get such a good float as tho In
diana. It is n private enterprise
although subsidized by tho British
Govornraon ton account of its great
value to the fleet.
Like the lato war of Grocco
against Turkey, the resolvo of tho
Portuguoso to tackle tho Foundry
mon in another tug-of-war may
be very plucky but it is decidedly
foolish. It will tnko the pick of
all tho town, with mouths of train
ing, to have any show whatever
against the men of iron. Indeed,
it is doubtful if they can bo pulled

It seems tbo British Pacific
cable scheme has been lot go, but
perhaps only to give the pro
moters a fresh hold on tho ropo.
Whilo thoy nre tnoistoning thoir
hands tho capitalists of Hawaii
should open a provisional stock
list for tho la)ing of a roBiuopoll
lan cabin. Only givo it a practi
cal start, aud tho project will go
rolling along to achievement. An
end to dealing with charter
mongers. Although tho Klondyko is in
Canada tho United States has Ha
waii ready to her hand with a
capacity of yiolding $50,000,000
of natural wealth annually.
