Eagan hinted that further nowtt
on the samo subject by next steam

lieyopd this amicable sparring
for points, an interview lasting for
about an hour was entirely upou
tho subject of coffee. General
Eagan is intousely onthusiastio on
coffee as a Icadinc product of these
inlands. .While theanoation of an
sugar was a atumbling block but
coffoo never. On tho contrary,
coffeo was a strong card aud one
of tuo winning onoa. As General
Eican put it sententiously thU
morning, "Americana could boo no
slavery in coffeo,"
It is confidently prodioted by
GonoralEagnn that coffee will yet
lead sucar as a produoo of wealth
to tho Hawaiian Islands. Today,

take all tho Hawaiian coffeo it can
