in figuring that from now until
Conresi 1ms registered its deci
sion is ouo of tho most critical
periods of thu torritory.
Porhnpa we have yot to see the
true inwardness of tho nn
tives request for tho res
toration of the nionnrchy. If
tho men behind tho movement
understand auythiug of politics in
WnBbiugton, they are proving
themselves tho Ilnwiuiiuis worst
So tho Chronicle thinks Mr.

They lmvo not been required or

Chronielo might bn ablo to con
tribute a fow.

sympathy for tho Ilawniians peti
tioning Congress, through the
American Commission, for a con

there is hope that the United
Stato will voluntarily haul i'
flag down in tho Hawaiian Itl
mids, it is tho hopo which lonii
doforrod will mako the heart sick.
On tho has s of the Advertiser's
unknown factor, tho merchants of
Hawaii had better cease buying
goods for tho future. Sugar is
tho lif'i blood of local industrial
life. If tho existing industries
aro to bo "hampered if not extin
guished," Clans Sprockols grass
will grow iu Honolulu streets.
People will bo leaving Honolulu
in droves and the merchants will
bo 1- ft with no buyers for thoir
goods. If tho outlook is so bear
ish as our contemporary seems to
soo it, why don't tho large holders
in sugar securities sell out ? Tho
fuluro iu gold mines and sugar
plantations cannot bo compared
for tho reasons which tho Adver
tiser itself gives : "Even if this
now process does revolutionize tho
industry thoro is no reason why
our own plantors should not sharo
in tho revolution." Life gouor
nlly is a pretty largo gamble.

One thing tho now comor to
Hawaii may dopend upon: ho
must bo prepared to meet as sharp
competition as ho will run against
iu any up-to data business com
munity on tho Qlobo. Largo and
email businoss establishments
havo been built up in Hawaii.
Unless tho country develops with
remarkable rapidity, tho estab
lishment of now mercantile firms
means tho distribution of profits
among a lnrgpr niunbor, uud a
coiiBtquont diminution of tho pro
tils of thoso firms already in the
Uueinoes men coming iuto tho
field remark upon tho falling olT
of tho cordiality with which they
were received sumo yoors ug.
This is duo largely to tho loss of
th- idealisms of life which existed
iu tho country beforo it was thor
ouuhly "discovered" by tho busi
noss men of tho Status. Tho local
man finds himself faciug tLo some
business conditions existing in the
States, consequently ho extend?
tho samo glad hand to possiblo or
prolmblo competitors, that iB giv
en the now competitor in Americ
an mercantile life.
It is now a fight to win and tho
cordiality of tho situation changes
accordingly. As competition in
creases tho tendency to set other
people up iu business decreases.
We believe boiuo of tho fratern
al societies havo beou a
littlo to radical in thoir warnings.
It would bo bettor to toll thoir
brethren not to como to Hawaii
unless prepared to spend a littlo
money in looking over tho situ
ation. Thoso who como with only
enough mouoy to land, phould by
all menus bo warned awny, because
walking from Honolulu to Coast
ports is very poor. Wo seo no
reason howover, why tho man
who stands ready to gnmblo ex
pouses for n short titno should be
k-pt away from Hawaii. Somo
will return disgustod, others will
romnin and tnko their chances iu
tho business strugglo as they must
do in nny country. Their chnncos
Tor hotter or worse, they can figure
on for themselves.
Thoso anticipating competition
with tho lurco corporations, tho
steamships lines and mercantile
houses, ought to know, that iu
order to succeed, they must have
about as much capital at thoir
disposal as tho corporations now
iu tho hold. Tho days whon new
competition "pays from tho start"
aro fow and far betwoen. The
now mercantile houses in order to
got tho trade must eell hotter
goods tit lower prices; tho stoam
ships lines must give as good or
bflterserviceaudbe in n position to
fni9 possiblo losses. "The poonle"
nay "como ou" nud "go nhend."
Tho bubiuesi houses say "como on
if you want to, but wo aro not dis
poeeil to mako you a present of
our trado "
It is n business proposition from
start to finish, and thoso mourn
ing tho loss of tho old cordiality
havo no right, as business men,
to figure tho situatiou on nny
other basis. Tho prospector will
will find that Hawaii will wine
him and diua him, but it deos uot
tnko tho contract to set him up
iu tho busidess. This lust
he must figuro out on a
bedrock, cold, unsympathetic
basis just as ho has had to do at
When business iB good, old rails
