LEAF HOPPER AND MOSQUITO. .
A very able entomologist of the Hawaiian Sugar Planters'
Association experiment station has made the statement that
ic has not, in his observations and research, found in Hono
lulu any of the variety of mosquitoes that carry yellow fever.
This is valuable only as a source of controversy and strife
hut under the circumstances we believe it should be given
about as much weight in the present campaign to clean Hono
lulu of the mosquito, as the Hawaiian Planters' Association
might give to an assertion from Dr. Blue, an expert sanitar
ian of national reputation, that there is no such thing in the
islands as the leaf hopper.
No possible good and a tremendous amount of harm can
be done by raising a ruction in the, face of the common en
emy. And if anyone feels that the, mosciuitb,is 'not a "com
mon enemy of the health and piospcrity of'thislcity arid these
islands he has failed to grasp the obvious acts of, the sit
uation. ' '!' !'.'"
Two of Honolulu's leading financiers have recently invest
ed $500,000 in sugar stocks.
.- Hutchinson plantation will double its dividend the first of
These two facts brought to public notice by Mr. St. Goar
through the Bu 1 1 c t i n, present the .optimistic side of the
sugar situation in the islands, in its relation to the tariff.
So much pessimism has ruled for the last few months that
this very positive demonstration of confidence is gratifying
The Bulletin believes with the optimists that free sug
ar is not upon us nor even a very serious cut in the tariff on
raw sugar. The air will be literally filled with tariff talk dur
ing the approaching session ol Congress, but the possibility
of tariff action until after the national election is very, very
remote. This justifies conservative policies but not com
It is a great misfortune for Hawaii that some of our lead
ers are not so quick to tell the people of the good things to
bo said of plantation prospects as they are to cry wolf when
adverse conditions threaten from Washington.
'-The disastrous influence of an overweening pessimism is
that the holder of a few shares of good stock gets panicky
and sells out. This stock in nine cases out of ten is picked
up by the pessimist, who feeling that he has done his duty in
warning the people, does not hesitate to "take in a little here
and there" as opportunity offers.
It is true that Honolulu has all the makings of a boom in
stocks. If the same conditions prevailed in any city of the
mainland there would be a boom indeed, tariff or no tariff.
But instead of a boom for Honolulu, the pendulum has
f wung in the other direction. Pessimism has almost run riot,
till the community has the shakes, and the banks, the best
barometers of financial conditions.jlo not consider it out of
place to make reassuring statements. In other communities
the banks usually have to exercise a quiet control to prevent
Honolulu should heed the lessons of the progressive West
Coast that refuses to be disheartened by disaster much less
retarded by a fear of the unknown in tariff tinkering.
In all reasonable probability no serious revision of the tar
iff will take place for two years.
' The Panama Canal will be open in 1913, two years hence,
thus giving Hawaii close connection with labor sources of
Europe, If worst comes to'worst on the t,ar)ff, Hawaii will
Have, a free, labor jiiarket as regards Europe and possible re
sulting changes inaur relations with the Orient. Some.of our
niost pessimistic pessimists have said that if relieved" of the
labor problem, they would be satisfied. , V1
