as opposed to the diversification of

was kindly disposed to every honest
effort for the development of the ag
riculture of the Territory, und ex
pressed regret that the alleged
friends of the small farmer should
not 'be able to see the error of tbelr
ways when misrepresenting nnd con
demning the work for European Im
migration. Meanwhile, locally, tho
moihlng small-farm advocacy has
been such thut It has become a sjn
onyra for untruth, nnd one of tho
very definite results has been th
publication of vicious statements
that have been and will continue to
be used by the mainland enemies of
Hawaii's main Industry. That Is the
plain fact. The only matter in
doubt Js; how long the people will
stand for such damaging tactics.

If not better reason nro given for tho
present situation. Henry Clews' lat

statement of money conditions. It
bujs: "Our hanks nie literally glut
ted with idlo funds, nnd although
crop-moving demands huvo com
menced tho New York banks show n
surplus leservo of about $00,000,-
000., which Is near If not exceeding
the record. This phenomenally ple
thoric condition of tho money mar
ket Is nttrlbutublo to two Influ
ences: ' first, tho diminished activity
of business; nnd, second, an exces
sive and unwholesome expnnulo.i In
our cuirency. As to tho first cause,
the facts are unpleasantly familiar.
Uusiness in general Is liinnlug be
tween 10 nnd 20 per cent, below last
year In volume, und In tomc cases the
shilnknge Is oven greater, the Iron
trade for Instance running less than
CO per cent, of Its capacity. Tho
lower langu of prices established for
many commodities also lessens tho
requirements for money. Happily,
these depressing elements nre grad
ually passing away; nnd surely. If

disasters of 1907.

attention it deserves. Accoiding to

gold come from? Well, tho United

largo Btock of the precious metal, is
producing annually at tho rato of
$100,000,000. nnd over. Last fall
we Imported more than $100,000,-

tho foreign banks already hold about
$lf0,000,000. more gold than a year
