WASHINGTON, July IS. The Baltimore
Sun, probably the greatest news
paper printed in the South, has the
following editorially today:
"The Honolulu Republican is the title
of an excellent newspaper which starts
its career concurrently with the establishment
of the Hawaiian Islands as a
Territory of the United States. Files
of the paper which we have received
give interesting accounts of local affairs
and the effacts of changes in conditions
which have come with the
change in government Some of these
changes are not, apparently to the liking
of the people. "The new system of
red tape Introduced in the custom
house. The Republican complains,
makes it practically imposible for a
merchant- to get possession of the
goods awaiting him without the expense
of employing a broker at considerable
cost- There is also much confusion
upon the question of citizenship
and eligibility to office under the organic
act. Attorney General Dole, who
is a nephew of the Governor, has given
an opinion upon this subject which has
made a stir. Of it The Republican says:
" 'Whatever Attorney General E. P.
Dole had in mind when he rendered h's
opinion on the question of citizenship
in Hawaii perhaps that gentleman jan
tell, but certainly no one else can tll
by reading his letter to his uncle, the
Governor. The opinion shows a most
marked absence of knowledge of Uip
law, and any clerk in a reputable law
office who would be guilty of writing
such a paper for publication would be
deemed fit to be informed that he hid
better drop out and go to hoeing sugarcane
"It seems that the organization of
the Territorial government was signalized
by a public ball in Honolulu.
The Republican contends that as the
cost of this ball was paid by the government,
it should have been open to
the public instead of being limited to
invited guests. The invitations, The
Republican complains, savored too
much of monarchical timeo.
"The city of Honolulu bids fair to
have a 'boom' Jn consequence of annexation.
The Republican says thp
city has 'reached that period In her
history that might well be termed the
parting of the ways. From a slow,
plodding town she has become a live,
bustling city. Her harbor is filled vsith
shipping, as never before, and she has
suddenly jumped from an insignificant
calling port to a great commercial center.
The march of progress has reached
Honolulu, and the old conditions must
give way to the new order of things.'
"Among proposed improvements are
a sewerage system, the onpnlng and
paving of streets, the numbering of
houses and the construction of an electric
"A leading fruit shipper in an interview
condemns the policy of Hawaiian
farmers in devoting so much of their
energy to sugar growing. He believs
that the present hij;h price will not
be maintained, and that there is more
profit in fruit growing. The whole of
the Island of Oahu is devoted to the
production of sugar, rice and taro, the
first being the money crop and the others
for domestic use. The fruit shipper
urges the cultivation of limes. Ho

is the natural home for the
lime. It does better here than any
where in the world. It is a perennial

It takes from three to four years for
the lime to bear from the seed. I have
three small trees on my place at
They net me S15 each. The United
States Imports from Mexico annuallv
from 300.000 to 400,000 cases of limis.
These limes could be easily raised
here. This is a great pineapple country
The pineapples that we raise are
very juicv, of fine flavor and free from
pulp. From 4.C00 to 5,000 pineapples
can be raised on an acre. The price to
the grower will average S1.75 per dozen.
I have six acres of pineapples on ay

Exact Terms 'by Which Prelates Axe
Able to Deal Personally
Here are the exact terras cf the
agreement entered into between the
Chinese Government at Pekins; and the
papal Secretary of State, Cardinal
del Tindaro, acting through the
vicar apostolic of Peking, Mg. Fa-vier:
"The imperial government, having
for a long time authorized tne propagation
of the Catholic religion, and
Catholic churches having in consequence
been established in all the
provinces of China, we are desirous to
see our people and Christians iivi in
harmony. To insure a readier protection
It has been agreed that tho local
authorities shall exchange visits with
missionaries according to the conditions
specified in the following articles:
"First In the ecclesiastical hierarchy
bishops shall be entitled to the
same rank and dignity as viceros and
governors, and shall be privileged to
interview viceroys and governors.
"In case a bishop is called away or
dies the priest in charge shall he privileged
to interview viceroys and governors.
Vicars general and archpriests
shall be privileged to interview Measurers
and judges as well as inteuuants.
Other priests shall be privileged to interview
prefects of the first and second
class, prefects independent,
fects and other functionaries, all of
whom shall return courtesies, according
"Second Bishops shall make a list
of the priests appointed to take charge
of affairs and interview the authorities,
giving names and locations of missions.
This list shall be sent to the
viceroy or governor, who will direct
to receive them
to this regulation.
"Priests requesting an interview, cr
those especially appointed to take
charge of affairs, should be Europeans.
If, however,' a European priest be not
conversant with the language of China
he may be accompanied by a OhuKse
priest acting as an interpreter.
"Third It would be useless for
bishops living away from cities to visit
the provincial capital for the purpose
of being received by the viceroy or the
governor if they have no business in
hand. At the installation of a new
viceroy or governor, upon the arrival
of a new bishop, br upon any occasion
of ceremony, as New Year's day
and the principal feasts, bishops shall
be privileged to write private letters to
the viceroys and governors, at the same
time incloaing their cards. Viceroys
and governors shall return the courtesy.
Before leaving or upon their
arrival other priests shall, providad
they have a letter from their bishop,
be privileged to interview, etc., according
to their rank.
"if any grave, or important matter
concerning any "mission in any province
should arise the bishop and missionaries
in office shall appeal to the
minister or members of the council
which the Pope has appointed as a religious
protectorate, the latter shall
have the right of deciding, together
with the Tsung-11-Yamen, or the local
authorities. If a mandarin is consulted
on an official question by either a
bishop or a missionary he must give
the matter immediate and polite attention
and institute an investigation.
"As occasions arise the local authorities
shall counsel the people, exhorting
them to unite with the Christians.
They shall never encourage hatred
or countenance dissension. Bishops
and priests shall likewise exhort
all Christians to strive earnestly toward
maintaining the good repute of
the Catholic religion, so that the people
may be content and appreciative.
In any suit between the peoplo and ths
Christians the local authorities shall
judge and rule with equity, that .he
people and the Christians may live in
peace. Missionaries shall neither interfere
nor give their protection with partiality."
Tne purpose of the concordat was to
give Catholic prelates official standing,
to enable them to overcome curious
Chinese etiquette and to deal personally
with -officials rather than, as
in the" past, with the consuls. It was
a step in the direction of good government
and not of necessity a religious
