SECRETARY NAGEVS CHANGED VIEWS.
Secretary Nagel's reference in his annual report to Amer
ican shipping is most significant for the Territory of Hawaii.
The Secretary comes out squarely in favor of a law al
lowing foreign built ships to be given American registry,
when they are ttfbe engaged in foreign trade.
What specially interests Hawaii is the qualification of his
hitherto unqualified advocacy of the suspension of the coast
wise shipping laws.
It is at once obvious that the Secretary has decided that
the additional American steamers already plying between
Honolulu and the Pacific Coast and those soon to be put on
now planned and under reconstruction will furnish the
passenger accommodation needed aid keep pace with future
development. He also undoubtedly sees the value of hold
ing the lines ot communication between this outpost and the
mainland safely within the undisputed control of American
We doubt if there are any Americans in this part of the
world who will disagree with the Secretary's policy un
doubtedly that of the administration that we must draw on
foreign built ships for American registry if the country has
any serious thought of re-establishing its merchant marine
on the high seas during the lifetime of the present generation.
Let the average citizen set In anil
do his political duty, mid there'll bo
no tumble with the management of
tho municipality ol Honolulu.
Secretary NitRel Is unipicstloiiably
convinced that the HiIiir for Hawaii
to do Ik to use some of Its surplus
building new American
the IncrenKliiK passenger ,
tralllc with the mainland. That Is u
point on which he Is exactly correct.

have been made in connection with

In town durliiR the last threo months.

place than for us to
Jewish fanners of Now York State
are setting an example In business
mettinds In funning that heats the
old Yankee horse trader In a walk.
They are planning a chain ot stores
that will unshackle them from the
,-ailliiR manacles of- tho middleman,
flicy propose to establish a federation
through which the Jewish people mil
buy dliect and, generally speaking
carry out tho Idea of the man who ad
vortlsoH "from the producer to the
consumer direct," besides junking
members of tho federation stockhold
ers in tho sJorcs.
At first thoiiRht the scheme bccms
too elaborate to succeed In all details
but the Jewish-American has set tho
paco In more than one lino of trade,
and ho may ho tho man wo liavo been
waltlUR for to teach tho farmer how
to do business at a prollt when plac
ing his goods on tho market.
The movement Is receiving tho en
couragement ot Now York's Commls
sloucr of Agriculture, who said tho
other day when addressing tho feder
ation at tho educational alliance:
"I am sorry that I cannot use your
language. Hut what I have to say I
believe so emphatically that I am sure
you will all understand mo. If a
farmer doesn't mnko money In this
Stato, It's his fault. Thoro's Informa
tion waiting for ovcryhody which will
guarantee success. When I sco n
farmer who Is Just plodding along In
New York, whoro thcro nro schools
and literature and experiment sta
tions In profusion to help htm solve
every problem, I am put In mind ot
a sailing boat I once heard ot that
got lost at sea, and blundered about
for days without Its bearings, until
Its water supply was gone nnd tho
famished crow despaired ot getting
out alive. And on tho last day, when
they were dying ot thirst, they pnssod
another vessel. They crlex' out for
fresh wator, and tho reply came, 'Dip
your buckets; you're In tho mouth of
tho Hlvcr Amazon.' Such Is tho situ
ation with farmers In this country.
"You don't seem to mind."
"I'm Just as well satlslled. I don't
caro to have cheap Huh tangling up
these expensive lines."

Wo don't know that It Is yet pos
sible to nay that (lie farmers of Iliii
wall liavo reached tho point whero
tlicy have only to "dip their buckets."
They are hciidlPK, however, In tho
light dlicetlon and with Iho co-oper

OUR TRADEJVITH RUSSIA. .
The Russian Duma struck at an an
nual trado of twcuty-Ilvo millions of
dollars when It threatened tho other
day to vote an Increased tariff on
American goods of something like a
hundred per cent.
Present day friction between Hub-
sla nnd America on account of .the
discrimination against Jewish-Ameri
cans has caused so ninny pcoplo to
ask how much business wo do with
Kussla that tho Department of Com
merce and talior has Issued n circular
on the subject.
Tho record bIiowb exports from the
United StntcB to Hussln, approxi
mately 2. million dollars; Imports
from Hussln, 12 million dollars, In tho
ducal year 1911, and Indicates that
trado between the two countries has
practically doubled In tho last decade,
tho Increaso occurring In both Im
ports and exports. Hides and wool
arc tho principal articles Imported
from Uussla, and eqtton, agricultural
Implements, binding twine, manufac
tures ot Iron unil steel, and manufac
tures of leather nro tho most Import
ant of tho exports to that country.
The above statements nro based up
on figures of tho United Staes Gov
ernment, showing Imports from, and
exports to Kussla as reported to tho
Hurcaii ot Statistics by tho customs
authorities of this country. Tlicy dif
fer materially, however, from the offi
cial figures of tho Russian (lovorn
ment showing her exports to, nnd Im
ports from the I'nllod States. Tho
Russian figures of Imports from tho
United States nro much .larger than
United States figures of exports to
that country, whllo Russian figures
of exports, to tho United States are
much Bimtllcr than our pwn statement
of Imports from that country. Tbeso
discrepancies between the nlllclat fig
ures of the respcctlvo countries aro
duo chiefly to tho fact that In many
cases goods In tho trade between tho
two countries ro not consigned di
rectly to the country ot ultimate des
tination. In such cases goods sent
from Iho United States to Russia or
from Russia to Iho United States aro
consigned first to a (ierniun, Knglisli,
or other middleman who forwards
them to their ultimate destination.
This Is particularly truo of cotton,
which Is tho most Important artlclo
of export from tho United States lo
Russia. The United States figures of
total cxportB to Russia In tho onl-
ndar year 1909 show a llttlo less than
$17,000,1100, whllo Iho Russian figures
show nearly $110,000,000 worth of Im
ports from this country. On tho oth
er hand, Unltrd Stales figures for tho
sumo yoar show Imports of over 51''.
000,000 worth of merch.indUo from
Russia, while Russian llgtires for the
samo period show n llttl" less than
