The the question of how to get the 1 ve.ather b"g favorable, work is . , , . being carried on in a very satislac Governmeiit and the plantations , tory manner . together on the subject of home- j steading in Hawaii, The plantations are at present the life of the Territory, and the thoughtful and far-thinking men of the Islands are not in favor of seeing them unjustly treated -or inequitably hampered in their busi ness operations. On the other hand, on the suc cessful application o f up-to-date homestead laws will depend, to a great extent, the life of the Terri tory, as an American outpost. If every effort is not made to develop our free American citizenship, the prospect is, at the present rate of their increase, that before very many years have passed the control of our government will be in the hands of the decendants of our pre sent Asiatic, alien, population. This is a result that- can only le Viewed with apprehension by' bur citizens, be the definite results what they may- As the situtation is at present, it will imt b'e'fuir-fo'the sugar plantation-interests to give any. body of ix-rha-ps irrsnsible citizens the right to demand that the plantation shall give up to them, for cultiva tion, any jxirtion of the producing cane lands, on their demand. Nor will this lie necessary, we lielieve, for the lk-st advancement of the homesteaders cause, although such action may le taken by the Planta tions, themselves, as has already leeii done.' in several instances, to the mutual benefit of both them selves and the settlers. Hut. the Government can well afford to leave such action entirely i; their hands. ' On the other hand, there ore Hisands of acres of public land in the Territorv which, with the aid of the surveys, road-building. and other improvement for which aid is recommended by the Eair- child resolution, will be ideal lands for the civilization of other valuable t . . . crops oesuics sugar-cane iy tne small fanners, or for the homes of those who are so situated that they can yet employment on the planta ; tions themselves, either under the independent contract system which has been producing such satisfac-. tory results during the past few vfrirn or else under t lie inrcct supervision of the plantation lunas themselves. The principal result tole sought now s tnat settlers shall have la,ul t,llir ow" HI which they can ,ake thcir 1,omcs- 1!evond that, the question of how they are 'employed, or whose lands they may operate upon is of lesser iin- portance. As time goes on, and the small I farmers become acclimated here, and accustomed to the work of operating the canefields, it may le found advisable to allow them to hold and cultivate their own cane lands. Hut until they have the experience necessary to conduct the somewhat complicated cultiva tion of sugar cane on economical and successful lines, it will be necessary to leave the control of these lauds in the hands of those who own the sugar mills, for their own protection. If the intent of the Kairchild re solution, passed by the Legislature, be followed to the letter, we believe it will mean a great step in ad- vance for the betterment of the frtc citit.n ,w,)Hiati0 (Jf Hawaii, on American lines.

There was but little in the way of new developments to cause any change in the condition of the stock market during the week. Sugar prices weakened, some what, judging from the quotations received on Heets, none having come to hand on centrifugals, but this was not enough to cause any weakening in values. Reports from nearly all t h e plantations are of a very encourag- ing nature and would naturally go far to offset any adverse reports emanating from other causes such as labor shortage, tariff agitation, &c.
