It is rumored that Mrs. Harry Gillig
will soon visit Honolulu. It is interesting
to note that Mr. Harry Gillig has
been studying vocal music assiduously in
Europe during the last two years. He
has always possessed a magnificent baritone
voice, which only lacked training.
This has now been remedied. The purity
and timbre of his voice, combined with
his present masterly technique, have o
impressed connoisseurs abroad that he
has lieen prevailed upon to make his
de&uf in opera. It i probable that he
will appear for the first time on the
operatic stage this winter. His debut
will probably take place at either Nice
or Monte Carlo, when the gay world is
flockinc to the French Riviera. His
many friends in San Francisco are extremely
desirous of hearing him in concert
before he returns abroad. A number
of well known members of the Bohemian
Club are agitating the subject,
and if Mr. Gillig can be induced to consent,
a concert will be arranged to take
place during the month of November.

College "Women in After-Life.
Mrs. Mary Roberts Smith, associate
professor of sociology in the Leland
Stanford Junior Unhersity, has collectel
some comparative statistics of college and
non-college women, in relation to
child-birth and health. These
ords, covering the cases of 343 married
college women and 313 married non-college
women, is published in the last bulletin
of the American Statistical Association
of Boston. The non-college women
are the sisters, cousins or friends of the
college women, and po represent much the
same social environment. The following
resume of thN report is taken from the
New York World:
"1. The jcollege women marry two
years later in life than the non-college
women (at 20.3 vs. 24.3 years of age).
"2. The age of marriage for both
classes has been growing later during the
last thirty years.
"3. The college women have a higher
percentage (53) of male children as compared
with non-college women (47.7).
"4. The percentage of births of children
per j ears of marriage is slightly
larger among the college women than
among the non-college women.
"5. There is no measurable difference
between the two classes in regard to
health before or after marriage, or in regard
to the health or mortality of children.
"6. Before marriage more than one-half
of the college women were engaged
in teaching, and nearly three-fourths were
engaged in some occupation outside of
their own homes, "while less than one-fourth
of the non-college women were
teaching, and only slightly more than
one-third engaged in other outside occupations.
In other words, college training
promotes economic independence.
"7. Three-fourths of the college women
married college men, while only one-halt
of the non-college women married college
men. (Co-education promotes matrimony
"S. Sixty-five per cent of the college
women, as compared with thirty-seven per
cent of the non-college women, married
"9. From the financial standpoint the
college women married better than the
"In other words, the test of figures :n
a fair comparison shows that while the
time spent in college postpones the age
of marriage by two years, a college education
neither impairs the health of woman
nor unfits her for marriage or motherhood
or economic independence, nor
in any way her prospects of
marrying well and suitably."

"Yes there has been rapid advance in
the islands since their annexation."
"What effect has it h3d upon business?"
"Well, in my business as a planter
there has been a considerable advance iu
the wages paid laborers on the plantation.
On ranch work we employ all native Ha
waiians and on the sugar plantations
Japanese, Portuguese and some China--men."
"What is the average wages paid?"
"For laborers we have always paid
from $12.50 to $15 per. month, but now
we have to pay from $17 to $1S per
month. Chinese teamsters we pay $22
"What do you regard as the principal
cause of the advance?'
"Well, in the first place the Japanese
are going home to Japan in great nun;
bers,,and as no can come
in, it makes the supply short And then
there is undoubtedly greater demand for
labor in other avenues of trade."
"Do you return home from here?"
"No, I will eettle down for a time
somewhere in California."
"What of Los Angeles?"
"I think you have the finest climate
in the world and I like the city very
much. Some years ago I visited here
and I notice very great improvement and
evidences of rapid growth."

A Prophecy of Tifty Years Ago.
In Creasy s "Fifteen Decisive Battles
of the "World," written over half a century
ago, occurs some remarkable forecasts
of events that are to come to pass
in the development of American history,
which in the light of our acquisitions in
Hawaii, and the Philippines and the present
situation of affairs in China, might
be considered a wonderful prophecy, the
fulfillment of which is not so remote, and
incidentally suggesting that the present
administration in this country may i
dominated by a higher power than that
of commercial advantage of territorial extension.
In his "Victory of the Americans
at Saratoga," Creasy, after quoting
from the president's message as to the
growth of the territories after the annexation
of Texas, says:
"The importance of the power of the
United 'States being then firmly planted
along the Pacific applies not only to the
new world but to the old. Opposite to
San Francisco on the roast of that ocean,
lie the wealthv but decrepit empires of
China and Japan. Numerous groups of
islets stud the larger part of the intervening
sea, and form convenient stepping
stones for the progress of commerce or
ambition. The intercourse cf traffic between
these ancient Asiatic monarchies
and the young Anglo-American republic
must be rapid and extensive. Any attempt
of the Chinese or Japanese rulers
to check it will only accelerate an armed
collision. The American will either buy
or force his way. Between such populations
as that of China and Japan on the
one side and that of the United States
on the other, the former haughty, formal
and indolent; the latter bold, intrusive
and unscrupulous, causes of quarrel must
sooner or later arise. The result of such
a quarrel cannot be doubted. America
will scarcely imitate the forbearance
shown by England st t -e end of our late
var with the Celestial empire; and the
conquests of China rnd Japan by the
fleets and armies of the United States
are events which many now living are
likely to witness. Compared with the
magnitude of such changes in the dominion
of the old world, the certain
of the Anglo-Americans over Central
Southern America seems of
