HAWAII'S ASIATIC COLONY.
Citizens of Hawaii gain no bene
fit for themselves or thoir country
by hiding their heads In tho sand
with the Intelligence of an ostrich
when n mainland American Inys

(bat it Is nn Asiatic colony.
vTho natural rcsponso to this
ehnrgo Is to loudly deny tho allega
tion and condemn the nllcgator.
1 Yet ovcry mnn In theso Islands
With tho nvcrago knowlcdgo of ten
'jlcnclcs for tho past fifteen years,
nnd having before him the figures ot
..population, knows thnt Hawaii has
tome so near to being nn Asiatic
J'olony that there is no fun In It.
If this were not so, thcro would
io no occasion for the special ef
fort making today to bnlanco' tho
'nationalities In tho ranks of labor.
j Drought down to brass tacks,
jho situation In Hawaii presents an
Overpopulation by Oriental races,
ho American controls through tho
'Anglo-Saxon determination to "run
Shlngs or dlo in tho attempt," back-'
d up by tho power and prestlgo of
tho United States government.
If Hawaii did not enjoy the latter,
.tho determination of tho Anglo
Saxon In the Islands wouldn't
tniount to much In the face of over-,
ivhelmlng numbers. A reminder of

Is this nn Asiatic colony in the

Let us not deceive ourselves Into
thinking that any race or national

What has been tho lesson ot tho
recent strike on the plantations ot

these things, but the Asiatic popula

BLESSINGS OF THE WOOL TRUST.
Sometime ago tho American Woolen
Company predicted thnt tho price of
woolen clothing would advance, be
cause wool Is high. Moro recently n
committee, of tho National Association
of Clothiers promised thnt the prlco of
roady-mado clothing for men nnd boys,
would advance 20 to 25 per cent.
Tho American Woolen Company Is
one of tho "so-called" trusts.
Clothiers In their own defense say
ono of tha reasons for tho prices go
ing up Is Hint, while the annual In
crease In the supply ot American
grown wool has not kept paco with
tho Increase In population, competi
tion In woolen manufacturing has been
nenrly eliminated by a largo nnd pow
erful combination of woolen nnd wor
sted manufacturers and spinners "who
practically fix their own prices." '
Tho main reason given by tho
clothing manufnctuicrs for the threat
ened ndvanco In retail prices Is that
tho Dlngley duties on wool and wool
ens aro much too high. They con
tend that because theso duties arc
so high tho cloth they Import for tho
men's nnd boys' suits has deteriorated
in quality, containing such a compara
tively small proportion of wool that
they cannot produce nt popular prices
garments which will wear well en
ough to serve them as a basis for
maintaining their reputations ns manu
facturers. This association, in its plea for a
reduction of tho tnrlff on wool nnd
woolens, declares that its membera
are willing to have tho duties on
clothing reduced proportionately.
Their protest against tho wool sched
ule may havo been Intended accord
ing to tho Chicago Dally News to mol
lify retail purchasers threatened with
Increased expenses for clothing. Issued
at Washington nnd introduced in tho
senate on tho day that body passed
tho Aldrlch bill, It certainly camu at
tho eleventh hour. Probably, how
ever. It would havo produced Httlo
effect had It been suLmlttcd last No
