Arthur Johnstone, Editor and Prop'r,
SATURDAY APRIL 24, 1886.
A suggestion has been made that
the new street running from the River
to Nuuanu street should be extended
to Fort street; this would permit the
closing of Chaplain Lane and would
give equivalent frontage on the new
Tile Overland Monthly for April still
continues the discussion of the
Chinese question by publishing an
able article on "The .Future Influence
of China," written by Mr. Irwin McDowell,
and reprinting an article writ
ten by the late Senator Miller for the
old Californiatr in the year 1880.
Fatrick J. Healy also contributes a
paper entitled "A Shoemaker's Contribution
to the Chinese Discussion,"
which, though somewhat prejudiced,
may be said to clearly set forth the objections
of the workingmen to the
competition of. Chinese labor. The
labor question is treated in two articles
entitled "The Land Question Stated,"
by Mr Alex G. Eels, and "The Taxation
of Land," by John D. Durst.
Among other readable papers may be
mentioned tOn the Trail of
"A Worshipper of the Devil,"
"Reminiscences of Calaveras," "Leaves
from a '49 Ledger," and an elegant little
poem by Charles Warren Stoddard
entitled, "Some One to Some Other."
According to the San Francisco
Commercial Report for the month of
March, 1886, the Hawaiian Islands
make a very creditable showing.
Hawaii stands third on the list of con
sumers of San Francisco exports, and
only lacks a few thousand dollars of be
ing second on the list. In the order
of total exports consumed, Great
Britain heads the list at $2,203,045,
which includes the cereal exports of the
Pacific Coast. Next comes New York
city, which consumes $248,680 worth
of San Francisco produce. The Hawaiian
Islands follow New York with
the figures lowered only to $243,985,
thus taking the most prominent place
in the' Pacific and rivaling the
great American metropolis on the Atlantic
coast. The Empire of China
follows Hawaii with $228,217, Mexico
lowers the figures to $199,946, and
British Columbia is the last place of
any commercial importance, which
raises the amount above one hundred
thousand dollars and reduces it below
one hundred and fifty thousand dollars.
The following may be taken as averages
of the Pacific Coast exports consumed:
Of barley, 5,038 centals
valued at $6,900, were sent to New
York; 4,651 centals valued at $6,028
were sent to Hawaii, and 725 centals
valued at $1079 were sent to British
Columbia. Of flour, 35,784 barrels,
valued at $134, 867 were shipped to
China; 50,953 barrels, valued at $198,-
903 were shipped to the United King
dom; 7,670 barrels, valued at $34,116
were shipped to Central America; and
3,739 barrels, valued at $14,799 we!"e
shipped to the Hawaiian Islands. Of
wine, New York took 13,229 gallons,
valued at $6,070; Great Britain took
2,766 gallons, valued at $1,720; and
the Hawaiian Islands took 1,808 gallons,
valued at $2,582, besides importing
gold coin from San Francisco to
the amount of $50,200.
The item of wine alone is most significant
to us, showing a decreased export
from San Francisco to these Islands
of spirits, and an increase of
good, wholesome wine. Upon these
Islands the wine imported is largely
consumed by the Portuguese, who
have been accustomed from infancy to
wine, and consequently dislike spirits
in the main. There is but little doubt
that drunkenness could be reduced in
the Hawaiian Islands by the Government
raising the license for the sale of
spirits and granting special licenses for
the sale of light wines and beer. This,
it seems to us, would be a practical
method of advancing the cause of
temperance in Hawaii
Canndu. nnd Hawaiian Trntlo Relations.
Ottawa, Ont., April io. The
special agent of the Dominion
was sent to the Hawaiian
Islands to inquire into the basis upon
which a reciprocity treaty could be arranged
between that Kingdom and the
Dominion has returned and will shortly
make his report. The line of steamers
it is proposed to place on the route between
British Columbia, the Hawaiian
Islands and China will facilitate that
commercial intercourse which both the
Hawaiian and Dominion Governments
believe can be developed to the mutual
advantage of either country, and both
are equally desirous of necotiating a
commercial treaty by which their trade
relations might be extended.
Canada's Right to Pass Restriction
Ottawa, Ont., April 10. Whether
the Dominion has to pass prohibitory
legislation respecting the Chinese has
been decided by a dispatch from Lord
Derby. In 1884 British Columbia
passed a Prohibitory Act. This was
disallowed by the Dominion Minister
of Justice, saying that it ought to be
referred to the Imperial authorities.
The communications passing between
the Dpminion and British Columbia,
and the reasons for the disallowance,
were submitted to the Colonial Secretary.
Yesterday his reply was laid
before Parliament as follows: "The
question is not one which is held to
involve Imperial interests, and the
Dominion can deal with it as a Canadian
Agricultural Report for April.
Washington, April 10 The De
partment of Agriculture reports that
the official statistical investigation for
April makes a reduction of the winter
wheat area of 3,500,000 acres from the
breadth seeded two years ago and 5 per
cent reduction from the area seeded
one year ago. On the Atlantic Coast
there has been a very slight reduction,
and none on the Pacfic Coast. The
largest decrease is in Illinois, Kansas
and Missouri. In comparison with the
breadth harvested last year there is an
increase, in a moderate degree, pro
tection by snow has been enjoyed,
though the covering has neither been
heavy nor continuous. The winds
have laid bare the exposed surface and
covered the valleys deeper. Winter
killing in patches is therefore reported
to some extent. The general average
of the condition is 92 V against 76
last yea?, the lowest ever reported, and
94 two years ago. Illinois shows 86,
Missouri 94, Kansas 88 and California
Henry Goorgo Talks.
New York, April 13. Henry
George addressed 3,000 workingmen
last night at Irving Hall on the eight-hour
question. He said : "I believe
the werld would be richer in proportion
to the less we work. I believe
one hour is enough. The intelligence
that produced power that could send a
message around the world in a minute,
if rightly applied, would produce a condition
of society where no one would
be overworked and no one would be

New York, April 12. Thomas
Power O'Connor, member of Parliament,
sends the following to the Star
from London: These are trying times
for the Gladstone Liberals. There are
few signs yet on the political horizon
of a reaction. The Opposition are having
things for a moment pretty much
their own way. The Liberals are still
suffering from the depressing effects of
Money's ineffective reply to the opponents
of Gladstone's bjll, the demoralizing
demonstrations of the Opposition
and the lack of enthusiasm in their
own camps. The Tories are exulting
over the aggressiveness of their fighting
men and the weakness and dissensions
of the Liberals. They are offering to
bet five to one that the Home Rule bill
faits to pass the House of Commons.
Other Tories are offering to give odds
tha,t the measure will not be presented
for a second reading.

DAILY HONOLULU PRESS, SATURDAY, APRIL 24, 1886.
Nobody who can form an unbiased
opinion on the subject will find fault
with the disposition of the Silver Question
just made by the House of Representatives.
That body has voted by
a large majority against the suspension
of the coinage of the standard dollar.
It likewise voted by a small majority
against the free coinage of silver. This
action leaves matters as they are, and
that is about the wisest thing that Congress
could do. S. J'". Bulletin.
