Los Angeles, Sept. 16. "Good In
vestment! I should say so!" said Mot
ley II. Flint last night, speaking ot
the annexation ot Hawaii to the, Unit
Mr. Flint, who Is the United SUtui
Pbatofilce Inspector tor tho District ot
Southern California, was sent to Hono
lulu In June to superintend tho estab
lishment of tho United States postal
system In the Islands, and ho returned
yesterday. Ho was thcro threo months
and In that tlmo got eighty-one post
omces In working order. Ho was much
pleased with the way business opemd
and with our new territorial acquisi
tion In general, and ha declares that
the Hawaiian Isles will bo a very vnlu
ahto part of tho public domain. '
"That Is shown byaho way tho post
office business started," said Mr. Flint.
"Almost Invariably a postal system In
a colony or a newly acquired territory
Is a source of deficit; hut tho Hawaiian
offices have paid from the start. I havo
deposited In tho United States tub
treasury at Sanyf ranclsco $17,600, the
surplus revenue of the Honolulu pos
tal system for two months and seven
teen days. I don't believe nnythlng
like that was ever heard of In the liU
tory of post ofTlco administration.
There Is a big deficit every month In
Porto Illco and the Philippines."
JAPS IJEST CUSTOMKIIS.
Who aro tho best patrons ot the
postolhco over thero?"
The Japs. They aro tho most pro
lific letter writers. They fairly swarm
in tho postotnees. Kven the sninlli'Ht
country offices have to employ Japan
ese clerks, elso they couldn't linmlle
tho mall. Tho Japanese nro very thrif
ty and nro great buyers of money or
ders too. Porto Illco did money or
der business ot but $3000 In tho first
ninety dayswhile Hawaii did a money
order business ot ?S3f.G In tho first 3l
Ono of Mr. Flint's duties was to ap
point all postmasters nnd see that tlrjy
gavo adcimate bonds. Previous to tho
coming ot Uncle Sam they were palJ
from 'i to $125 a month; but now they
are generally paid according to the
stnmps cancelled. It was not nn r.sv
matter to get postmasters. Men wore
not so eager for the Job ns they are In
this part of tho country. They would
try It awhllo nnd then resign, nnd In
they must bo Irrigated, and I don t
know what they aro going to do. The
wells seem to bo giving out and tho
situation Is serious. Sugar cane re
quires an enormous amount of water,
and, bless me, It I can see where many
of the planters are going to get It.
"The labor problem Is another diffi
culty that confronts tho planters.. No
more Chinese can come In; there Is a
tacit understanding that no more
Japanese shall land at present, and the
natives ar edylng off. Tuberculosis Is
Increasing so rapidly as to create
alarm. The authorities nre resorting
to extreme preventive measures to
check Its spread.
"I do not regard tho Islands as
healthful. It Is a delightful ocean voy
age to go thcro, but th caverage mail
or woman cannot stay'there six months
without suffering In health.. There 's
too much humidity. The showers are
succeeded by lntenso heat It Is debili
"Tho 'enthusiasm for President Mc
Klnlcy's administration there Is im
mense. The ratification of his rcnoml
nation In Honolulu was a stunning af
fair. Los Angeles could not possibly
have turned out such a procession.
The trade of tho Islands with this
Coast Is of great Importance to in.
The commerce between Honolulu and
San Francisco Is enormous and steadily

Tho Honolulu postofflce Is a cosmo
politan affair. It employs Americans,
Jnpaneso Chinese, Portugucko and Ha

separato delivery window for each of
these people, making five postofflces In
"They aro, most of them, becoming
good Americans," said Mr. Flint. "They
appreciate United States Institutions
nnd will make an American common
wealth. Judgo Ksteo is kept busy na
AS TO TRADE AND CHANCES.
Asked about business conditions over
there, Mr. Flint said: "Uuslncss Is
remnrkably good. Prices of nil kinds
of merchandlse'aro very high and the
profits of dealers who are well estab
lished must be big. I have on a pair
of shoes which cost mo $0.50 over thcic.
I woul dnot advise anybody to go there
seeking nn opening, however. I didn't
see any openings. A laboring man has
no business to go there. He must com
pete with Chinese labor in all branches.
Nearly nil tho small stores nre run hy
Chinamen. The grocers, tailors, otc,
aro Chinamen. They aro a better class
of Chinese than wo havo hcre better
physlclally and Intellectually. Labor
is paid good wages nt present, but tho
high cost of living makes up for the
greater wages and moru, too. A man
can't begin to live thcro on tho money
which keeps him In comfort In South
"Somo of the big sugar plantations
pay largo dividends, whlla others arc
losers. Tho successful ones aro nearly
all closo corporations, and If you go
Into tho other you take qulto a risk.
I 'saw many a poor devil go broke In
Honolulu from speculating In sugar
shares. Young Americans go there ex
pecting (o make, a fortune from a few
thousand dollars, buy floating sugar
stock, can't keep up tho assessments
and nro frozen nut. I know a Los An
geles young man who dropped $3090
ft few weeks beforo I camo nwny. It
was nil ho had.
"I heard as much talk about water
as I hear In Southern California. Nu
merous well diggers from California
ate working there. On tho rainy stile
the Dullotln of the Ulnnd tho plantations nro all
right ns to water, but on tho dry sldo
brought Into submission by tho appli
cation of measures contwv to law and
