THE MUNICIPAL ISSUE.
The political situation In Hawaii was
never more complicated, kaleidoscopic
or fraught with more possibilities foi

possibilities of mismanagement, ithe

If theso forces can be held togethor

In tho capacity uf candidates to fulfill
tho duties of the olllce to which they

will be county and municipal govern

Republican party known to contain an
liltin conservative clement. Cltizoji

leaves nn opening to put off the strug

lature of lour jears hence The elec

to favor partj piomlscs which arc noth
ing more or less than an attempt to

menu an thing after. Though the Re
publican candidates be the best men
this Tcrr'jorj can muster, failure ul ,

people have made up their minds. Any

DOOR OF ORIENT SHUT IN AMERICA'S FACE
By ALEXANDER RUSSELL WEBB BEY, Consul
It Is tho fashion for Americans to
write and to speak most optlmlstlcall)
nowadays on the brilliant prospects of
their trade with Oriental countiies.
The acquisition of the Philippines
and tho unhinging of the door In China
have turned the e)cs of mercantile,
Ameiica eastward; and all the markets
of Oriental lands are already looked
upon us the Certain reward of American
business pluck and cnierpiise.
Ten ) ears' experience as American
consul In tho Philippines, long travel
thiough China and India, and nine
yeais" seivlco In the employ of tho
Ottoman Empire qualify me to advl&n
that the outlook Is not ns losy as It
The bar to Ameilcan Hade progress
with the Eastern people Is that tho
laboi cost uf the urticles desired hv
them is gieater In Amerlca'than In thri
competing European countiies.
It Is Idle to argue that the American
woikmau'8 supcilor clllcleniy moic
than makes up all along the line for
the wage clirferenic. That may be o
In the case of a fen articles, but in gen
eial It Is not tiue.
I have seen the Ansonla Clock Com
pany fall to compete In llombay, with
a Geiman-Swlhs house, because It could
not make the docks as cheaply owing
to tho higher pa) of the American me
chanic. Again, in India, I taw En
glish cloth drilling win the markrt
ftom American competition by reason
of greater cheapness, aided by tho lit
tle trick of stamping It "American
The help That the stumping gave to
the victor In this trade competition
Illustrates the fact that tho American
goods, generally speaking, are inoio
deBired than any other on tho markcW
of tho East. They have n better llnlsli
and a finer appe.uanco than the goods
competing, but they aio ulso dearer;
und that kills their chance with poor
people, as all those Orientals are.
It Is very evident that some Amerl-

Marina sas that nobody who know
the economic situation In Cuba can 1)3
surprised by tho growing agitation
It cites the following case, the fig
urcs being tnken from tho books ot
ono of the leading planters, of the tale
of 10,000 sacks of centrifugal sugar,
polarizing Sfi.u degrees, the gross
w light of which was 3,230,OT0 pouncW
Tlitt tnie wns 30,00.0 pounds, leaving
3,200.000 pounds ofUngar, worth, nt
three cents n pound, $9fi,000 Id No
ftik. Add to this $1,000 extra nllmv
nnev for the high polarization and the
value was brought up to (97,000. flu

tal expenses (CO, 005 nnd leaving (30,
391.50, or (3.G3 per sack, or, say, (J '.'4
The cost per sack Is as follows: (3 33
for 3.025 pounds of cane; grinding, '.')
cents; transport and warehouse due,
51 cents, a total of (4.74, leaving a loi
of 75 cents Spanls hgold per Back.
Therefore, for every (100.000 rtpic
scutlng the work of the cultivator and
the capital of the planter more thau
half goes Into the Treasury at Wns1!
Ington. The paper says that some call
this liberty, Independence nnd sovr
eignty, but others call It the harshest
kind of economic deependence.
At a large meeting of negroes today
Scnor Rcndon denied that the negroes
wnurcd to mako trouble. All they
wanted was justice. All Cubans, he
added, should unite to offset Hie
Americans. Senor Cnrreras said lh
American needed Porto Rico, tno

their negroes there. If tho Govern
ment showed Incapacity to deal falrlv
with tho races the negroes would
show them nt tho next election who
wcro the masters.
Scnor Don said the President suit
Senor Ilravo to Santiago to talk with
the negroes regarding a supposed up
rising there, but he learned nothing

It Is not apparent that tho trade gains
will extend much farther there, ex

would give Americans an ndvnntage In
The Filipinos want little of the white
rami's goods. There are millions of
them, to be sure, but It Is only possible
to trade with tho more civilized ones
who Inhabit the towns on or near tho
coast. These will buy American con
densed milk and perfumes; they did so
when I wus there. The seml-barbar-laus
will still be content with the milk
of tho caribou.
Hermans, Spaniards nud English In
tho Philippines will buy the goods of
their lespcctlvc nations under normal
price conditions, because they aro made
to theli liking and because they ai
cheaper than the Ameilcan Colonists
fiom tho United Slates may be expect
ed similarly, to prefei the goods they
havo been used to nt home, but, after
all. they are not numerous nor will
they lie in man vears, For all theso

In tho Philippines docs not look allur

prices, ns a rule. The government h
very filendly to the Ameilcan enter

sorely handicapped by the greater cost
of the goods to the exporter.
