Dlxe Havyaiian Star,
Published every afternoon (except Su
Frank L.
The table and Information upon su
Kar production which was published
yesterday In these columns contained
a great deal of condensed Information
upon sugar production wjilch Is most
valuable. The Burtiau- of Statlstlc3
Elves an amount of information which
is simply rriarvellous, and It Is dissem
inated by every paper of standing
throughout the United States. Other
countries supply statistics which are
burled In blue, red, yellow and other
ofllclal books. The United States bu
reaus send their information broadcast
and get it before the people. .
The growth of the sugar Industry 13
simply marvellous. When It Is consid
ered that In sixty years the production
of sugar has run up from 1,150,000 to $,
800,000 tons we' can judge how the de
mand for sugar hus Increased. In dis
cussing the sugar situation yesterday
mention was made 6f the shortage of
the beet crop as being 1,000,000. This
-was very nearly equal to the total su
gar crop of sixty years ago. Again the
marvellous advance of beets during
the same period is equally marvellous.
The beet crop of sixty years ago was
only 60,000 tons.- At the present time
It is over 0,000,000 tons.
The large use of sugar marks In a
great measure the prosperity of the
masses of the people. Thus the two
most1' prosperous nations upon the face
of (he globe, viz: the United States
and the United Kingdom consume the
largest amount of sugar per capita.
While The Star advocates the candl
dacy.of F. W. Macfarlane for the posi
tion of Treasurer, if he will accept the
olllce, there" are others who, falling Mr.
Slacfarlane, The Star would -be willing
to support. The preponderance, how
ever, Is distinctly in favor of Mr. .Mac
larlane, for he has many advantaged
over any other candidate proposed,
ills strong association with the Ha-
nvallan element In the community is at
this time a very cogent argument in his
favor. When one adds to this his high
financial standing among the business
community and his organizing ability,
lie certainly is a candidate worth sup
porting. If we want to restore thor
ough confidence Mr. Macfarlane Is cer
tainly the man to do It quickly, and do
it thoroughly. But then Mr. Macfar
lane may refuse to accept.
On the other hand there Is an excel
lent treasurer to be found In Theodore
Lansing. He has been tried as a treas
urer and his integrity and ability are
above reproach. He understands the
Making all allowances, people seem
to live longer than they used to In the
United States. This .Is the conclusion
to be drawn from the figures given In
a statement issued by the Census Olllce
In which the median age of the popula
tion under the census of 1800 is com
pared with that under several preceding
censuses. It may be explained here
that the median age Is such an age that
half the population is over it and half
under it.
The median age of the total poplatlon
In 1800 was 22.8, as compared with 21.9
In 1890. The median age of the white
population's higher than that of the
colored portion, being 23.4 in 1900. as
compared with 19 7 for neirroes Indians
and Mongolians. In 1890 the figures
The effect of the sugar shortage is
already being felt In the central Pa
cific, for there was more done In stocks
.yesterday than has been done for many
a long dny. Prices also began to crawl
up, and it begins to look as if the
Xiigreat depression was broken. Faces
which were very long indeed are be
ginning to broaden out now. Christ

the Hawaiian Islands generally are no
longer a haven to which the criminal

the position of a dignified and wealthy
citizen. The Islands used to be the
absconder's paradise, but they have

The bounty fed sugar producing na
tions as Prance, Germany, Austria-
Hungary, use much less per capita
than the countries to which the sugar
Is exported. The reason for this Is the
heavy tax which Is locally laid on the
article to enable the sugar to be ex
ported. It was against this system
that the 'Brussels conference levelled
Its rulings.
The poorest countries of Europe use
the least amount of sugar, thus, while
the United Kingdom uses 91.0 pounds
per capita, and the United States 05.2
pounds per capita, Spain only uses
10.0 pounds, Turkey 8.0, Greece 7.2, and
Italy but 0.1 pounds per head. And
ureece at one time, in the far away
classic times, was famed for Its sac
eharlne products. The bees of Mount
Hymettus supplied honey, the only
sweetening substance t hen known
only to ' Athens and Attica,
their product found Its way
to Rome. As the ancients depend
ed upon honey for their sweeten
ing matter it is no wonder that they
took so much interest in their bees, and
allusions to and dissertations upon bees
occur in both in prose and verse in all
the classic writers.
We care very little for honey, but we
care a great deal for cane sugar. We
should all be acquainted with Its his
tory, Its price, Its success and Its com
petition, for It is by cane sugar we
live. Take sugar away and the Islands
go back sixty years.
