PRESIDENT DOLE'S LETTER.
In tbe brief message transmitting the
now famous letter of President Dole to
Minister Willis criticizing the Ilawaiiaa
policy of. tt:e administration President
Cleveland characterize*! the paper as a
"most extraordinary letter." Tbe charac
terization was couect, hut the circum
stance* under which it was written were
also extraordinary. Tbe pith of the Ua
walian President's letter lies in the
At the time of your arrival !n this country
the forces ot this Government were organized
anil amuly mflicientto sui press any internal
disorder. After your arrival you made com
munications regarding your po;icy which were
ambiguous, and for several weeks you failed to
disclose yonr intentions auJ have only partially
done fo up to the present moment, leaving thi*
Government to infer what they may ultimately
be /rom the letter from Gresham and the Presi
dent's message In wtiich It has been declared
In very distinct language that the deposed
Queen oujrht to be restored to the throne by
the Government ot toe United States, and to
leave tbe United States to Infer Hiat this
assumed obligation would be discharged. Your
language, expressed in public, declared tlmt
you intended to perform some act when the
pioper time arrived, without disclosing what
that act would be. Under these circumstances
tlieie arose at once a general feeling of disquiet.
This arraignment of the Ameiican ad
ministration is justified by facts. Min
ister Willis, while preserving a degree of
discretion, did intimate that he was a
chosen agent to carry out a policy which
would neither need local support nor tol
erate resistance. Exactly what that policy
was he did not say. The Provisional Gov
ernment was kept in the dark until the
arrival of Secretary Gresham's letter to
President Cleveland, which declared that
the honor of the United States would be
satisfied with nothing less than the restor
ation of the Queen. Meantime the Pro
visional Government had prepared to meet
a condition of things it could not define.
It proved that the friends of the deposed
Queen anticijated her early restoration,
and it had to be prepared to meet any
emergency that ruicht arise. The Pro
visional Government realized also the fu
tility of resistance to the United States
if its Minister had instructions to resort
to force. But it did not know what the
instructions of the American Minister
were. A study of the American constitu
tion threw no light upon these instructions,
for the reason that the organic law fur
nished no ground for many things the
President bad dove. The characterization
which Mr. Cleveland gave to Mr. Dole's
letters was, under the circumstances, an
appeal to the national spirit of Congress.
It seemed extraordinary to Mr. Cleveland
that his course should be so sharrjly oriti
cized. But Congress will doubtless act
after consideration of the extraordinary
condition under which this extraordinary
letter was written.
The Yolo Democrat says :
Tbe Woodland Woolen-mill was closed more
than two years ago, and during a Kepublican
administration. The McKinley tariff was pow
erless to keep it in operation. The stock uold
ers could not have possibly foreseen that a
Congress pledged to modify tbe tariff would be
elected Id 1892. Nevertheless theie Is iu-t as
much reason for them to claim tnat a l>pmo
cratlc administration and the Wilson bill are re
sponsible for the closing flown of their mill as
there Is that these conditions are responsible
lor the fact that the Marysvilie looms are Idle.
The effect of tariff duties on American
industries can only be considered in the
relations of eucli industries to foreign in
dustries of kindred character. Tariff du
ties may enable the Eastern Statea to com
pete with foreign manufacturers, yet not
enable the manufacturing industries of
one State to compete with like industries
of another Stale. It was not the JtfcKin
ley tariff that closed the Woodland woolen
mills. That tariff was powerles to keep
the mills in operation for the simple reason
that Eastern mills could produce goods of
the same character and quality and sell
them as cheaply or more so in our home
market Why California does not com
pete in manufacturing with the Eastern
States is a question of numerous complica
tions. Manufacturing is a class of indus
tries which as a rule awaits the second or
third generation. The channels which
lead to market are worn by time. No new
community can open these channels in a
day. The transportation in finished goods
is so small a per cent of the total cost that
it affords little protection to the local pro*
ducer. Unlimited and cheap capital, long
experience, and a wide labor market are
essential conditions of success. The pro
tective system may save us lrom deadly
competition with foreign couatries but not
from competition in our own country. The
argument of our free-trade friends is that
if the protection of the tar ff does not pro
tect California from the competition with
other states it does this t^tate no good.
This is a nnrrow view to take of a large
question. If the tariff does not enable us
to compete in the manufacture of wooi it
may preserve us froru numerous compe
titions wirti foreign countries in the pro
duction of fruits, wines, beet sugar and
other rroductß of the soil. Manufacturing
will come later. Capital at present iluds
a more promising fifld in the planting of
orchard*, the cultivation of sui;ir beets
and kindred industries.
ONE OF THE PIONEERS.
Governor Gilpin was so generally for
gotten that most people may have thought
lie was dead, when on Saturday the news
of his actual demise was made public.
He was a rnnn who filled a large space I"
the history of the last generation, but he
had become a back number. It is well,
however, that lie should not be laid away
without a word. The history of the settle
ment of the prairies must allot considera
ble space to his performance.
He was a soldier, though he was born a
Quaker; he was bred at West Point; when
he was barely of age lie served in Florida
and subsequently in the Mexican War,
where he commanded a regiment of
mounted volunteers from Missouri. But
his life work began when he was ap
pointed to the command of the force which
was charged with the duty ol keening open
the trail across the prairies from the river
valleys to the Pacific Coast. The dis
covery of gold in California followed 10
swiftly on the conclusion of peace with
Mexico that things were hurried. It was
important to keep open the wagon trail;
in ISGI. when the war broke out, it was
vital. The tusk was difficult. Between
the Missouri Valley and the Rocky Moun
tains over a thousand miles of trackless
prairie intervened and this vast region
was peopled by warlike Indians, well fei
on countless troops of buffalo. The duty
of keeping (pen the line through these
savages was entrusted to Major Gilnln.
lie crossed the prairies in 1547 from Fort
Leavenworth and wintered that year at
the base of Pikes Peak. la the following
year he took the field and in a series of en
gagements he defeated the Indians so
thoroughly that they were never again
able to concert operations on a large scale
to prevent the invasion of their hunting
grounds by the whites.
At the close of hostilities Major Gilpin
settled on a ranch on the eastern flank of
the continental rang", in what is now the
State of Colorado. He visited this State
in the days of the gold boom and at one
time contemplated pitching his tent here,
but the attractions of bit mountain home
tuasWed'the lure of cold diggings and he
returned to the interior. The men found
him quietly follow ing the business of ranch
ing and mining. Gold had been found in
the streams which flow down the eastern
slopes of the Heckles, and a theory that
there was a second El Derado there had
led to a large immigration from Kansas
Nebraska and Mi3»oun. The people
formed a government and the region was
admitted as a Territory; the first GoTernor
was William Gilpin, who was appointed in
IS6I. During the fifteen years that Colo
orado was a Territory Gilpin subsided; the
leadership of the Territory fell into the
hands ot Chaff ee, who became Senator of
the United States, but it was mainly due
to Gilpin':» efforts that the large territory
of Gunnison was included in Colorado.
This will be his claim to remembrance
by posterity. Tie was ihe first to point out
the extraordinary resources o! the Gunni
son country, which now embraces five or
six counties in Colorado, abounding in re
sources. The valleys of the Gunnison ami
the Grand contain sume of the best farming
land in America; the Uneompahgre Moun
tains are full of silver, and in the country
of Gunnison itself are beds of coal which
are a superior grade of lignite. Aspen,
which is now one of the nio>-t flourishing
towns in the State, is on the Roaring Fork
of the Grand; it was me of the points
whose future Governor Gilpin prpdicted.
llow fine a country this is may be inferred
from a letter recently written from Lead
ville, on the edzcof the Gunnison country.
It said that the writer had been told that
hard times prevailed through many parts
of tbe East and West, but added: "As for
us we never knew more prosperous times
than those through which we are passing."
It ie tad to hear that Governor G.lpin
was out of the swim when the boom of
1879-80 struck Leadville, and that he did
not get Li* snare of the fortunes which it
yielded to more active operators.
HOW TO INCREASE BUSINESS.
The annual report of the chief of statis
tics on the foreign commerce of the United
States for tho year ending June 00, 1893,
just issued by the Treasury Department,
contains useful information touching the
details of that commerce. Chapters re
ferring to our exports of certain articles
of domestic production, in competition
with the exports of the same articles by
other countries, are worth consideration
and study, though the amounts of money
involved may Beem small.
For Instance, we lenrn that in tbe fiscal
year ending June 30, 1893, the United
States exported to all countries 101,540,814
pounds of glucosp. Of this quantity Eng
land took 96,000,000 pounds, the rest being
sent to Belgium and Australasia. Giucose
\s a sugar produced from fruits, grapes
and other agricultural products, which is
used in many manufactures. It appears
that we supplied Great Britain with 91 per
cent of the quantity she required for her
own consumption and for re-export, the
other 9 per cent being supplied by Ger
many, Holland and France. It thus ap
pears that the United Slates possess prac
tically a monopoly of the supply of glu
cose, and that in that branch they fear no
competition from other nations. By what
means and through what agencies this
couutry obtained this ideal position is well
We find a different slate of things when
we turn to another article— tallow— whirh
is a staple export of the United States. In
the year under review Great Britain im
ported 154,076,048 pounds of tallow, of
which 52,894,384 pounds, or 34 per cent,
were supplied by the United States. Of
the balance, 06 per cent, the great bulk
was supplied by the Australasian colo
nies—New South Wales, Victoria, New
Zealand and /Queensland— which supplied
Great Britain Avith 83.503.952 pounds.
IJere is an article which we produce in
abundance, and yet of wSich we only sup
ply Great Britain with one-third of her
consumption. Would it not be possible to
increase our export by ascertaining the
reasons why Australasia, which is so
much farther from Iceland than the
United States, can export eight pounds
when we can only ship five? Tnere must
be a reason, either in price or in quality,
why Australasia gets the lion's share of
the trade. Discover that reason and that
share may be ours.
Another branch of trade which will
bear study ia oar export trade in wheat,
THE MORNING CALL, SAN FRANCISCO, MONDAY, JANUARY 22, 1894.
"bearded wrn-ar, and mixed rye and
wheat," to France. Of these articles
France imported in the calendar year
1801. thft last of which we Have returns,
M 1.8891580 pounds. Of this quantity the
United Sfaes supplied 14 per cent, Tur
key 14 per cent, Russia 18 per cent au-1
Hie French colonies of Algeria and Tunis
99 per rent. Of course the high French
tariff on foreign train operates as a bounty
on the importation of French colonial
grain; and we are not in tlie habit of mix-
Ing our wheat and rye to accommodate
the French market. We cannot do any
thing toward reducing tlie French tariff,
but there is no reason why we sliould not
mix our wheat and rye if the French
want them in combination, and we ought
to and we do produce a wheat which is
suusrior to the African grain. It would
seem that if me trade were intelligently
uushed i f might be increased above one
sevpn h of France's total import.
It buing admitted that what the United
States chiefly wants at the present time is
foreigu markets to consume the steadily
increasing surplus of product?, it goes
without saying that the opening of those
market* will largely depend on efforts
lit'inK made in the ri^ht place and in the
ritrtit way. Just as the problem for the
California grape and Iruit grower is Low
to pu9h the sales of his products in the
Eastern Stales, and how to convince the
Eastern people that they would get a better
article for less money and earlier in the
season lrom us <han from those of whom
they have been accustomed to buy, so the
question for all other producers is in what
direction they can increase the export
movement in order to swell the foreign
consumption of their products. That en
terprise requires exact and minute knowl
edge. It is gratifying to observe that ihe
Bureau of Statistics is doing something to
REMEDY FOR CICiARETTE-SMOK
There seenn to be a difference of opinion
among members of the School Board as to
whether law or moral suasion will prove
the rtettcr remedy for cigarette-smoking.
We npprehend, however, that there is no
d ifference of opinion as to whether talk will
not bo more effective than either one. Iv
fact, laws of this character are effective
only when backed by public opinion.
Sneaking of reruedie3 lot this the liecurd-

The power of the State to enact a law
declaring the sale of cigarettes unlawful
will readily be admitted. But such a law
could only be enforced in Its application to
minors. The right of the individual, which
has nssnrted itself so forcibly in defeating
legislation prohibiting the sale of liquor,
Would be enlisted Pgainst a law prohibit
ing tho sale of cigarettes to adults. The
■J-Vition suggests a license upon the
business winch will make it unprofitable.
It Is quite likely that muc!i may be accom
plished in this way. But a!l laws of this
character depend in a great measure upon
the force nl poblle opinion. Boys should
be enlightened as to the effects of cigarette
sniokiti£. Tlie knowledge should be pressed
into t'leir minds that the smoke of such

will stunt a dog they will stunt a boy.
THE LAW OF COMPETITION.
The Woodland Demutcrmt wants to know
why The Call does not try to induce Mr.
Irving M. Scott t<> increase wages at the
Union Iron Works to the Maro Island
standard. Our Woodland friend certainly
knows that the Union Iron Works is sub
ject to competition, while the natirnal
navy-yard is not. When the Union Iron
Works seeks a Government contract it
finds itself under the necessity ol underbid
ding the Cramp, the liuntington aud other
Knstern ship-building plants. The Union
Company has already lost a great deal of
work it might have secured had the East
ern labor market been open to it. It is
understood, but ho far as we know has not
beeu oflicially announced, that the Union
Company saved i'self from loss on the
Olympia only by the premium earned l>y
excess of 6peed over requirements. But
there is another point which should be
considered in any comparison between the
public and the private shipyard. Tbe
Union Company retains its men year after
year. Competent men ara secure in this
place as long as Uin company has work
for them to do. In the national yard men
are Buliject to the vicissitudes of politics.
In most cases influence is required to get a
place of any kind, and when obtained
places are held on a frail tenure. The re
duction in wages at Mare Island affects a
very small percentage of reduction in the
aggregate expense of work. One high
salaried ofiicial absorbs the saving that is
made on a dozen or mo re daily laborers.
THE ELEMENT OF CHEAPNESS.
Our Democratic contemporary enumer
ates several of tho articles that tbe Wilson
bill will cheapen to American consumers.
Among these are coal, iron ore, bemp and
wool, agricultural implements, grain bags,
tin plates, lumber and clothes. Admitting
that these articles will he cheapened under
the Wilson tariff, it will only be by the use
of imported goods in place of those of do
mestic production. American wool will
give place to foreign wool. American
agricultural implements will be replaced
t>y the cheaper agricultural implements
made abroad. Welsh tin-plate manufac
turers will prepare to supply our fruit
growers with tin cans at less than present
prices until the American tin-plate estab
lishments have been crushed out But if
California gets so ninny things cheaper
under the Wilson tariff it must expect to
contribute something to the general cheap
ness. Producers of oranges, raisins and
prunes must be content with lower prices.
The fruit-grower who saves a fraction of a
mill on a tin can will have a chance to
compare this saving with the loss of a cent
a pound on his canoed fruits. The man
who saves a few dollars a year on clothes
will balance this saving with the loss he
incurs on all his products. And If In spite
of cheapness his profits should amount to
more than a certain sum he will have to
pay a portion of that profit in the form of
an iucome tax.
Unless it has a disastrous effect on the
maintenance of the Panama Railroad,
which is highly necessary to commeice on
the Pacific Coast, nobody should grieve
over intrigues about the Panama Canal
and the formation of a new company. M.
Monchicourt, the liquidator, is said to be
ooposed to the creation of a new company
unless he is chairman. Perhaps he is
richt in this attitude, because in that ca
pacity he would know how the funds are
going. But unless France Is prepared to
spend several hundred millions more the
idea of renewing operations for a canal at
Panama may be given up as dead. In
stead of that waterway the Nicaragua
Canal must 09 carried to completion. Tne
project Is now in an unfortunate compli
cation, out of which it can be taken when
the United States intervenes and gives the
required financial assistance in return for
large powers of contruL Before long the
way will be clear for a satisfactory solu
tion of the question, and when th« cnnal
is opened trw wonder will be mat Federal

The profits of pornographic literature
are a great temptation to the unscrupu
lous. The mere fact that Lady Burton
destroyed the manuscript of a translation
from the Arabic by her husband has
sufficed to produce a conspiracy among a
few persona who were acquainted with
him to publish a spurious ".Scented Gar
den," in tho hope that it may be accepted
by a gullible public as the veritable work
of Sir Richard Burton. They are Dot
scholars enough to gi> to tlie original
AraMc. There can be no question abuut
Sir Richard's manuscript having been con
signed to the flames, and only two tersons
besides the wriler had read it. These are
Lady Burton and the copyist, and the
latter has sworn to divulge nothing. It ■
a curious fact that Burton made more at
a jump by his "Arabian Nights" tr-nn w»s
earned by all his other books. He was
really very much shocked as well as im
pressed with this characteristic of public
taste. Had he chosen 10 pander to base
ness how rich be might have been.
Lord Dundonald, the son of the famous
admiral, has written an interesting article
on the adoption of high sounding names
by people bearing ignoble or common
place patronymics. Thus the present
Duke of Northumberland has no title be
yond assumption to the name of Percy,
the family name being Smithson. The
present viceroy of India, Lord Lansdowne,
is not a Fitzmaurice but a Petty. Slullins,
in the person of Lord Ventry, has become
I)e Moleyns. One of the most astounding
changes of name ever made was by a man
who publicly advertised hi 9 abandonment
of the not enviable patronymic Bue. and
his appropriation of that of Norfolk
Howard. The result was that the vile
smelling insect which infests worm-eaten
bedsteads was styled Norfolk Howard
forthwith, and thus the name of the Duke"
of Norfolk was familiarized contemptu
ously. There is still room for a history of
names. The changes of spelling iv com
mon names is not a little curious. Even
filch a name as Smith may, by orthographic
ingenuity/be made toappeardi»tiogui:<hed.
Russian finance is a tbind by itself in
national accounts. It is always supposed
there is a huge deficit and this is aciually
the casf, but it is the business of a Finance
Minister to gild di-agieeable facts, »nd
this is very beautifully contrived in Rus
sia. The accounts are never up to datf.
Those for 1892 nave just seen the liuni,
nnd when the ordinary and extraordinary
budgets are dicested there is a deficit of
no less than 108.5t):i,<iOO roubles. But the
Minister discount-* this ugly fact by intro
ducing as revenue tin 1 nmount of loan*, to
the extent of 1&!,3;-7.0<JO roubles. This
leaves a balance in the treasury of
M. 7.'4.000 roubles. Only in Russia would
this he called surplus. Any individual
who became bankrupt without a dollar of
assets who should burrow a thousand dol
lars and call himself solvent would cut a
queer figure in a court of justice. It is
only when Russia tries to borrow money
that bankers are compelled to call these
Hiri>lu*es by Iheir true names, but in Rus
bifi. itself the™ little fictions do not con
enm the moujikn. and they have no effect
upou the huge army expenditure.
Australia sent an iuvitatlon to the Duke
and Duchess of York to visit the colonies
and have a good time. As a inuls'iijimnrj
the Duke has already made the acquaint
ance with every quarter of the globe, and
he doubtless would like nothing better
than such a pleasure trip. The invitntion
is, however, "declined for the present for
domestic reasons." This may be taken to
be a vary propitious reply in respect of the
line of succession to the British throne.

Two mm have died ty the rope in the
East who richly deserved their fate. It is
hard to realize that one of them was a
human being at all. He conceived a
brutal passion for his cousin, a girl under

dered his uncle and aunt and four children
and then fled. Ue died as if he had i. either
nerves nor fnelingn, inspired by neither
hope nor terror. The psychology that can
unravel such a nature is subtle, except by
blunt conclusion that the brute had no
foresight or r reception of consequences.
