WKDNKSDAY, MAY 24, 1882
The suggestion made in the Min
isloiinl " prospectus " if we nitvy
so term it of Hominy lust in the
Assembly, that in view of the possi
ble abrogation of the Reciprocity
Treaty two years hence, we should
make provision in ndvnnco for tho
ciiuugo that would follow that we
should "put our house in order '
is a sound proposition. Although
we thinly believe that if the truth,
the whole truth, and nothing but the
truth, ig demonstrated and set be
fore tho American pcoplo and Con
gress as to the working of tho Trent',
it v ill vot be abrogated, yet we are
as strongly of tho opinion that it will
be a wise policy in our Government
to nllbrd all possible aid and encour
agement to the production of some
other articles of national export bc
sidcH sugar and rice. Tho report of
the late Minister of the Inteiior con
tained some valuable hints in this
direction, referring p:iticulaily to
the cultivation of Ramie. And
there is another vahtnblc product to
which the soil and climate of these
islands is peculiarly fitted the cul
tivation of Coffee of which the best
quality is grown, but which has been
neglected for many years past on
account of the prevalence of blight.
This same disease on the coffee trees
prevailed to such an extent in the
Island of Ceylon, that it nearly
ruined the export trade, which con
sisted almost entirely of coffee. "We
beg to suggest that our " paternal
government" would do a valuable
work by causing enquiries to be
made abroad, in Ceylon and else
where, as to this blight on the coffee
tree, and its cure for we have seen
it stated that it is curable, and that
it has disappeared from Ceylon.
But coffee and ramie are only two
out of n large list of articles that we
might produce, besides sugar. See
'first page for " A remedy for scale "

"Drinks from Drugs,"
Mr. Editor i Having heard Mr.
Johnson in his lectures, I was in
duced to expend 25 cents in tho pur
chase pf one of his books entitled
''Drinks from Drugs. A startling
exposure of tho Liquor Trafllo."
After perusing it pretty thoroughly,
I am constrained to say, that it
rcallv contains little which has not
been heretofore printed and pub
lished to the world, though not per
haps advertised so extensively as is
done by Mr. Johnson in his lectures.
I saw nil, or nearly nil the formulas
hero given, in a book printed and
freely circulated in tho States some
twenty years ngo. As to the good
that will bo accomplished by Mr.
Johnson's book, I am free to say
that I am skeptical about it. Those
who do not drink, do not need such
arguments against using ino ue-
coctlons described, and I doubt if
umoug those who do drink many will
bo cured of the habit by telling them
it is poison. The out and out clrunk
ard certainly will not be thus scared
into total abstinence. On the other
hand, is there not a probability that
the circulation of this book, with all
its minute directions how to make a
cheap "grog," may result in in
creasing the veiy evil it purports to
put nn end to ? Suppose, for in
stance, it was carefully translated
into the Hawaiian language, and
scattered broadcast over the Islands.
I think it would be sought form
read with avidity. But for what
purpose ? Why, in very many in
stances simply in order to lenni the
way to make cheap brandy, whisky
or gin. The tract is no doubt," as
tho cover says, " Tho fastest selling
book out," and the same might be
said of another stylo of book which
shall be nameless, but I may be
allowed to doubt its real value in the
cause of genuine Tempeuakck.
To-day is tho sixty-third anniver
sary of the birth ,of the honored
lady who, for nearly forty-five years,
has reigned as Queen of the British
Empire. It is no exaggeration to
say that there is not a spot on tho
habitable globe where an Anglo
Saxon can be found, from which will
fail to go up to-day a fervent,
hearty, "God save the Queen!"

A Stagd Drlvor'B Story.
"Iliad only-made no run down
hero," snid our Btago driver on a
jbilvpeyi in Now Mexico, "when
passing one of tho sidings, wo took
on a simon-pure, double-fisted
' SrojV c of the pioneers ; those
fellows who had lived a life in ud
vaneo of civilization, making the way
easy for others, but always leaving in
time to escape the press and im
provements, tho foundation for
which ho had so surely laid. Evi
dently ho had never before seen the
interior of n car, for it was some
moments before ho concluded to Beat
himself, which he did cautiously nnd
with that quick, nervous twinkle of
tho eye which men constantly on the
alert for danger exhibit. Lot mo
say hero that in this country every
man carries a pistol, aud generally
in his back pocket. Well, as I had
already seen tho other passengers'
tickets1 I took my time nnd slowly
walked up to my man aid put my
hand, witli the usual quick motion,
behind me to get my punch, but be
fore I could say 'Ticket, sir,'
quicker than powder tho muzzle of
a six-shooter swelled under my eyes,
and a hearty voice rang out, ' Put
her back, stranger, I'vo got the drop
on ye.' You may laugh, but I
shook hands with him over a free
ride, any way."
