Before Judge Wilcox, district
Mr. W. A. Kinney yesterday
filed a complaint against The Republican
charging libel in the first degree.
The Republican is glad of this opportunity
to prove the truth of its charges
In regard to the conduct of certain attorneys
and the practices in the courts
In Hawaii in the past. It Is prepared
to substantiate before a court of justice
every accusation It has made, and Mr.
Kinney and all others who feel themselves
aggrieved are invited to put us
to the test. The Republican has not
been sleeping during all the days it
has been in existence. It has been
everlastingly working and Investigating
and Jt has such an abundance of material
FROM THE RECORDS to pla:e
before the people of this community
that It feels like thanking Mr. Kinney
for his kindness In affording such a
splendid opportunity for getting before
the people the record facts. It Is
not the first time a newspaper which
opposed ring rule and corruption in
public affairs lias run up against a libel
hult, nor will it be the last time. This
paper will go on fearlessly and undismayed,
fightlngor the right and for
the people, and It will win in the end,
just as right always wins.

valuable and interesting article.
Should orders iu the Judiciary be
changed? Well, rather. The very Important
case of Mary C. Aldrich against
Prlscllla E. Hassinger was decided a
few days ago, AFTER NINE YEARS'
of litigation. The fact Ifiat L. A
Thurston, the self-confessed partner of
Satan, was a party In Interest, may
explain the animosity of his newspaper,
the Advertiser, to modern methods.
There was money the other way. There
was no money to be made when the es

judge of a circuit court pushing a
prosecution in a police court, a prosecution
of a case which, "had there been
any justice in the land, would naturally
have been appealed to that self-same
judge for adjudication. The Republican
would also like to see the grand jury,

At the Magdeburg convention of sugar
makers, in June, there was a discussion,
says Consul Murphy, of the
prospect of sugar being' displaced by
saccharine made from coal tar. This
substance, first made in the laboratory
nf thA Johns Honklns University. Is
now manufactured In largely increased
quantities. The saccharine produced
and sold last year was equal to 50,000
tons of sugar In sweetness, thus preventing
the consumption of that much
German beet sugar. A tax on saccharine
is-accordingly demanded and a re
striction upon its sale. There is, how
ever, it Is thought, no Immediate danger
that saccharine will destroy the
beet-growing Industry. Beet sugar
may hereafter be produced by chemists
synthetically, but their material . Is
likely to be starch flour, and potatoes
nr similar farm nroducts would have
to be grown to produce the starch.
Tho Cuban suear production was -e-
ported to the convention to be comparatively
small, and unlikely to Increase
soon. The Cuban patriots, in
their effort to get independence, de
stroyed the sugar plantations and their
machinery, so that vast
areas once productive are now in weeds,
Extensive districts are desolate. Large
capital will be required to restore the
Cuban sugar Industry, and the capital
is not forthcoming In the present unsettled
political condition of the island.
The old planters are impoverished
and In debt, and no new element appears
to take their place. The German
beet now averages, it is stated, from
U to 10 per cent of sugar, while cane
averages but 12 per cent
In yesterday's Republican appeared
an Interesting interview with Mr. Ia.
G. Kellogg on the subject of growing
pineapples in Hawaii. Mr. Kellogg is
confident an income of $200 per acre
can readily be realized from this fruit
by an Industrious farmer, and gives
logical reasons for his belief. Varied
industries are what this Territory
needs to make it reach the full measure
of its greatness, and the pineapple is
one of the products that can be made
to yield larger profits than sugar. Its
cultivation is especially adapted to the
The statement of Mr. Flint that In
the first month of the money order
postofllces in Hawaii 5,000 orders were
issued, while jn Porto Rico, with eight
times the population, less than 5,000
orders were issued in the first three
months of the operation of the money
order system, is a high tribute to the
character and intelligence of the people
of this Territory.
Thanks to The Republican's vigorous
fight for house numbering, in connection
with Mr. Flint's statement as to
the requirements for free mail delivery
for Honolulu, this city will soon have
its houses numbered on a practical
common sense plan, and besides will
have free delivery. These are some of
the blessings derived from being an
And now Mr. Kinney, thinks he has
been libeled by The Republican. Too
bad. What The Republican said Suu-day
morning struck in deep, just as
truthful statements always do. The
truth is something Mr. Kinney and a
number of others in this community do
not care to have made public
