The old henH hae cackled anil laid
a variety of colored eggs nil for the
purpose of destroying public confl

The net result of the whole mlaor
alilc business Is that the majority of
the people throughout that section
of the town known n the business
community are not only Batlbllcd that
the campaign Is one of pure mud and
personal Bpltc, but that Mr. I'lnkham
has made a first-class ofllclal and
should be reappointed.
The attacks on Plnkham's Integ
rity have resulted In an exhibition of
backing and filling that Is ridiculous.

tho conservative sentiment of

The sugar market bids fair to con
tinue In Its present finorablo status,
as far as Hawaii Is concerned.
Reports received by tho latest mall
from the Coast demonstrate Uiat-tbe
experts havo been far f rjitn c orrwt
In estimating the shortage; ufTlrc.CU
ban crop. Karly In the xeaton the
most pesslmlstU' placed the Cuban
crop at 1,200,000 tons. Now they
reduce It to 1,000,000. and there Is
very good prospect that tho flguro
will fall below this by tit least ono
hundred thousand tons.
During the last few days the price
for London beets has been steadily
falling, and n reduction in the prlca
of cane sugars may be expected at
itny time. There Is no danger, how
ever, that the price for cane sugur
will fall below four cents.
The European situation Is un
doubtedly influenced by the planting
for the next crop, Mr. I.lclit report
ed bad weather for planting up to
the middle of March. This condition
may hnvo Improved with Increased
sowings In prospect from the general
high prices. -'
Tho beet sowings of Kurope will
not be finished until well toward tho
middle of May. If the weather con
ditions nro favorable and the sow
ings show a heavy percentage of In
crease, the price will be leveled ac
cordingly. A steady four-cent or four-and-n-quarter
market will be fat better for
these Islands than u further ndvanco
approaching five cents. The presont
figure assures our producers a very
good profit, and a good average or
prices for; next year. "
Look for a reduction In price, but
don't let It worry you.

The cause of this awakening, so
long postponed nnd now so sudden,
Is tho final realization by the people
at large that Hawaii Is on the map;
that America hag Interests In the
I'.iclflc worth protecting; and If not
protected they will not long bo un
der the rontiul of tho American na
tion. Tho peace-preacheis who urge that
preparations for war shall cease In
order that tho other fellow may be
Inspired to nssumo less warlike pol
icies, have had their day. They are
actuated by the best of motives, but
they lack the practical sense which
tells tho citizen of every country to
day that the mlllcnlum has not ar
rived, war has not vanished from the
list of probabilities, and Internation
al friendships last only so long ns
they satisfy selfish national Inter
ests. - - .
