At the presont tlmo tho Teirltory
of Hawaii appears to no In much

probably not more thnn tovon thou

The result of this diminution Is that
Chinese moiehantH who havo estab
lished businesses horo hnvo neen com-
polled to ictrench in their business'
for hick of pat.onnjso from their
countiymen; that many tracts or
land formerly cultivated have been
