felt Is to bo regretted that good old
Secretary Wilson has challenged his

like him in preference to Glftord

moments In the latter years of the
Secretary's very useful life.
Too much should not be expected
of the uclous enemies of an Amcrl

It is natural tor them to represent
the failure of the Canadian-Australian
steamer to accommodate its
sliaro of local passenger traffic as
havlng.no bearing on the proposed
chango In American laws. To
th'o Intelligent American, how
ever, who still has some re
gard for his country, it Is an
examplo of the very poor service that
Is given this port by .through fiT;

Is proposed to remove ''the present

then the peopleof Honolulu will be
entirely at the mercy of the alien

where iher are absolutely free to
carry all the passengers they wish

remember that the failure of this

It Is ,,truo Hhat Hawaii has for
many .ears been run on the plan
that statistics are not facts, because

COMPARING FARM WA6ES.
When the rate of wages paid tho
field workers in our principal In
dustry is under fire for any cause, It
is alwas interesting to compare the
wages paid 'here with tho rate that
prevails in some of the older1 whlte
tnen countries where conditions
arefpresumably more civilized, If not
Our Russian friends Just arrived
are disposed to ask more than J22
a month, with free houses, a section
of land, free fuel and free water and
free medical attendance.
In the British Isles, where the
farmer has had of late years to
stand the brunt of advancing wages
on account of emigration to Araer
lr and the Colonies, as well as a
u.lft to the towns and manufactur
ing centers, the Northern counties
of England pay 18s. 6A? or about
?4.44per week, lu Wales 'laborers
receive 16s. or 13.84. In tile Mid
land counties laborers receive ISs.
or 13.60, and for the Southern and
Western counties they receive but
14s. 6d. or '13:48. '-Combining Eng
land and Wales, the average wage
In 1908 for' agricultural labor was
about 16s. or 13.84 per week.
From 1899 to 1906 there was a
gradual decrease In the sura paid In
wages for this kind of work, each
year, but from 1905 until 1908 there
was a gradual Increase, though in
Scotland and Ireland there was 'but
little change) At the present time
conditions are such in the factory
towns that there Is llttlo to Induce
young men, to leave the country, and
It Is possible that the' wages paid
for agricultural labor will be re
duced, In accordance with the laws
of supply and demand. Tho statis
tics indicate that thq laborer' re
ceived about 37 per year, and in
asmuch as wages paid in 172G were
about 13 to 15, It is easy to
edmpnte that'fhd wages of the Eng
lish fafnf laborer 'have a little 'more
than doubled In less than 200 years,
which Is a very rapid increase for
Another feature of the English
situation, of Interest, Is that .In the
agricultural matters; tney have what
Is known as gamekeepers, woodmen
gardeners and other special trades
considered to be allied with agricul
ture. 'Now Inasmuch as a game
keeper receives from 24s. to 30s. a
..-.ir,. '.iti'-.r.''-.-ikr. j
week "wUh'a'i'reVcoUage and a cer
tain allowance of coil, and a wood
man receives 'rf6ni,22s. rto 28s'. per
week and a gardener from IDs. to
26s. a week, with this same addl
tlonal privilege of cottage and coal,
it Is seen that farm laborers have
some Inducement to specialize along
certain lines. Gamekeepers, wood
men and farmers live under far bet
tor conditions than do the factory
workers in the manufacturing con
fers. The more enterprising coun
try laborers, 'who have 'heretofore
been migrating to the towns, seem
to grasp the fact that by special
izl'rig'theV witl'bo abie'to'be'tler their
conditions and remain in the coun
try. , . ,
The value of specializing Is found
everywhere, b'j,t when the farm spe
cialists of the Urltlsh Isles afe paid
comparatively little ''more 'han the
ordinary agriculturists of this land;
Just causo for complaint against
What Is offered here sinks to a
very low minimum. As for our Rus
sian friends, wo are inclined to the
belief that tho prospect for them
Is luxury and wealth compared with
their opportunities at home.
Politics may be a game for men,
but the original boss was a woman,
so thrilling as tucking away the sal-
nry check at tho end of each week,
Thermometers make more liars
than the big fish that get away.
