No South Sea Island immigrants have
been obtained during the year, the last at
tempt of the Hazard, two years ago, met
with such poor success. The brig Allie
Itowe is now on a t rip to the South, with
orders for 200. The South Sea Islanders
are obtained at lower wages than either
Japanese or Portuguese, but it is doubtful
policy to obtain them, as almost without
exception they return home upon the ex
piration of their contracts, the expense of
getting them here thereby becoming a
dead loss. As none of the Japanese con
tracts have yet expired, we cannot say
what they will do, but it is probable that a
large proportion of them will remain in
the country. The Portuguese have show n
that in the main they w ill make a perma
nent population, but a small proportion of
the whole number brought here have pone
to California, and the reports from those
who have gone there are that they regret
the change and would be glad to get back.
There is no doubt that theexpen-e of ob
taining Japanese at $55 each and Portu
guese at $1hi each is very much more than
is necessary. These figures have given the
introducers of the laborers a much larger
margin of profit than the planter ean af- '
ford to pay, and there is no reason why
the figures should not bo very much re- !
duced in the future. i
The obtaining of laborers during the
coming year is a question of the greatest ,
importance. The position of the Govern-
merit with relation to the subject is doubt- j
ul. Some time ago it w as announced that
I the Government would not un b.Mt.ik- t
t introduce anv la.'te labor lor the pitx-nt.
Sint.-e that a partial change of A-1 mini-1 ra
tio, i h.i- taken pl:u t; and an item of it- -".-tor
iiuini ri ation purpo-e- has been
id... i-.l in th- Loan bill. It K however,
optional with tin- Government to lrrov
the money and expend it for thi- purpose,
and no further declaration of policy ha
been made, sinee that above mentioned.
Meanwhile the available plantation labor
ers are growing It.-- in number by reason
of departure and engaging in other occu
pations, and nece.-sity for a new supply
will soon beeoine urgent. There are now
npplieutions on lib- lor about Too Japanese,
and a much larger number will soon be
required. In several of thi- di-triVts labor
is abnn l int at the present rate of w iges,
but any deerea-e ill Wages. Would immed
iately cail-e a sea rcity of labor. With the
pre- tit pi iei s of sugar cheap labor is an
ab-olute essential to the future existence
of the sugar industry. It is not a ques
tion of sentiment or advi-ability of high
or low grade labor; it is simply st cold
que-.tioii of fact Will you continue the
sugar industry with cheap labor, or will
you aboli.-h the sugar industry of the
Islands? That is the only alternative.

At a meeting of the Trustees, held in
Augu-t last, the following resolutions were
Whk.ukas, The immediate objects for
which the Planters' Labor and Supply
Company was originated, to wit, the pro
curing of labor, the exchange of views and
experience regarding cane cultivation and
the the manufacture of sugar, have been
largely accomplished, ami the present
needs of the planters are largely met by
the publication of "The Planters'
Monthly," ami the expense of continuing
the association is considerable and may
not be justifiable; therefore, be it
Itesolved, That the Trustees of the P. L.
and S. Co. recommend to the Company at
its next meeting consideration of the ques
tion of the dissolution of the corporation;
and they do further recommend that the
publication of "The Planters' Monthly"
The resolution is therefore before this
meeting for consideration. Notice has
been given in "The Planters' Monthly" of
this question, and it lias elicited a number
of expressions of opinion, so that it is
unnecessary to make further mention of it
The question of the publication of the
report then came up for consideration, and
some remarks relative to the Reciprocity
Treaty were excerpted from the above-.
Colonel Spalding thought the less that
appeared in the local newspapers about
the Reciprocity Treaty the better He did
not see what good was going to be done by
the publication. A great many articles
had appeared in the local newspapers here
which had been used at Washington to
thejlisadvantage of the planters.
Mr. Schaefer said that Mr. Carter had
told him thai he had more trouble over
what had appeared in the Honolulu papers
than what was said in Washington itself.
He would not publish anything.
Mr. Dole asked whether, if the "Plant
ers' Monthly" continued, it would be pub
lished in that?
J VAilll oL, Spalding said that if the stock

Colons- . '-tvk'cit..
holders J1 le did not see any

- . j .. i t 44 14 UIL-'il
iV.f't fr their benefit. He did not care
iout seeing it published.
Mr. Macfie saitl it had been the custom
in the past to publish the report, and if it
were suddenly dropped might it not give
an impression of secrecy ? They might get
the credit of taking action which they
were afraid of being known, and that
might do as much harm as the publication.
Perhaps some will consider themselves in
jured by not having an opportunity of
seeing it in print. He would be in favor of
publishing the report, if only for private
Colonel Spalding said if anything were
published they should leave out every
thing relating to reciprocity. One of the
ablest speeches he had seen in America
was one prepared almost exclusively from
data obtained from Honolulu. He would
be a very poor speaker who could not
make u strong speech from what had been
published in the Honolulu papers. He
hit nsclf could make a stronger speech
than the San Francisco "Chronicle" would
dare to publish from the nonsense that
had been published here.
Mr. Walker corroborated what Colonel
Spalding had saitl about Honolulu journal
ism. Many things that had been pub
lished here about the treaty were of a
Mr. J. M. Horner wan very much in
favor of the report being published in
"The Planters' Monthly." They could not
help what was published in the Honolulu
papers, but they could regulate their own
The Secretary said that he had talked
with Mr. Carter as to what would be best
to publish, ami that gentleman had told
him that as far as anything in "The
Planters' Monthly" was concerned, that
was for the information of planter. The
only object m spending any money in the
States was for the information of Congress
men and other influential persons there.
The pamphlet published a short time ago
had done a great ileal of good. Any sound
argument in favor of the Reciprocity
Treaty would be advantageous.
Mr. Austin thought they should go on
and publish the report.
t'oluncl Spalding said thatwhn he was j
in Washington the reports came on from
this company, ami it was stated that Colo
nel Spalding was in Washington, and an
endeavor would be made to smooth over
the rough edges of the Reciprocity Treaty.
that did ret look very bad here, but the '
"Sun." one of the mo-t inibiential papers. '
had given him one of the wor-t drubbings
he bad ever had from any paper. It :

lie. He knew it wa a lie, hut that was
what the paper aid. He was not afraid of
the men in the halls of commerce, but
tho-e out-ide these men who write. He
was afraid ot the ignorant rabble out-ide,
not the Senators. it the time should ever
tome when the San Francisco "Chroni
cle's" idea should ; carried out, and men
went into Congress pledged agaiii-t all
ret iproi ity treaties, then the planters could
not hope to conquer. The Congressmen
might say they were not in favor of the-e
views, but that they must give tlfect to the
wi-he.s of their constituents. In the fat e
of this, what good was being to be done by
the publication. They would not induce
people to change their mind- by pointed
Mr. lialdwin moved that the-e remarks
about the Reciprocity Treaty be stricken
out and a simple statement of the Treaty
as it now stands be substituted before the
publication of the report. Agreed to.
The report was then adopted, ami it was
resolved to publish it as amended, but the
portion relative to the Treaty has not yet
Mr. Mat lie desired to know how many
and which Trustees were present at the
meeting in August, when the resolution
was pa-sed recommending that the consid
eration of the dissolution of the company
should come at the general meeting. He
was a Trustee, himself, and knew nothing
The Secretary said that Messrs. Dole,
Castle, Jones, Glade and Thurston were
present. The meeting was held on the
loth of August. The question arose out of
the diiliculty experienced in inducing a
large number of stockholders to pay their
assessments. That meeting was culled to
consider the payment of certain accounts.
The point was raised by Mr. Jones, who
saitl it was very little use approving bills
when there was no money tt pay them.
He had been made personally responsible
to the bank, and was not willing to accept
the responsibility in the future. If he con
tinued to hold otlice as Treasurer the com
pany must be established on some basis
w hich would not subject him to that lia
bility. The President saitl the next business was
the election of new Trustees.
Colonel Spalding saitl he would like to
discuss the question as to whether "The
Planters' Monthly" could not be pub
lished on an independent basis.
This was reserved for discussion in the
afternoon session, ami as the Treasurer
would not until then be ready with his re
port, a recess was taken at 11 :20 a. in. until
2 o'cloc k.
On reassembling, Mr. P. C. Jones read
his balance sheet, which showed the bal
ance at the beginning of the year to have
been $921; the collections during the year,
$3,487; the expenditure, $3,(7y; leaving a
balance in hand of $732. Inasmuch as the
report has not yet been audited, its publi
cation in detail for the present is withheld.
The Treasurer, after having read the
balance sheet, said that during the year
the assessments had not come in very
readily, and in order to keep things going
he had at times been personally responsi
ble for an over-draft of $1,000 at the bank.
The Secretary had asked him if he conld
suggest any plan whereby the institution
could be carried on without this personal
liability. It was this that had induced
him to originate the idea of considering
the continued existence of the association.
He did so on account of the deficiency of
funds. It was, in his opinion, too heavy a
tax upon some plantations-to pay what
they do. There should be a readjustment
of the shares or of the mode of
raising money. He did not ques
tion the utility of the association.
"The Planters' Monthly" at present was
an actual loss. He thought there were
about forty plantations which would be

of the magazine was productive of very
beneficial results. The company had
also paid for the distribution of a
pamphlet by Mr. Whitney, representing
the Sandwich Islands as the center of the
universe. Mr. Carter had spoken to him
of the influence that pamphlet was likely
The balance sheet was ordered to be
Mr. Jones said he desired to call atten
tion to a statement which had appeared in
the AnvKKTisER, to the effect that this
association had pant out money for Ha
waiian politics. Colonel Spalding: That
was before the change of Ministry. They
would probaly retract now. He wished to
to state that during his incumbency as
Treasurer not one single dollar had been
paid out either directly or indirectly by
himself or anyone connected with him for
Hawaiian politics on behalf of the P. L.
ami S. Company. He, however, admitted
having paid money out of his own pocket
for political purposes. (Applause).
Colonel Spalding said that the Auvf.k
tisf.r hail shifted about so many times
during the last few days that it was hardly
fair to call upon them for a retraction.
They were no doubt heartily sorry now
that they had ever favored Mr. Gibson.
The President said that the next busi
ness, according tt) the rules of procedure,
would be the elee.ion of Trustees.
Colonel Spalding thought it would be
better tt) decide what they are going to do
before electing Trustees to do it. It would
he Useless to go into the election until it
was decided on what basis the Association
would be carried on in the future. He
proposed taking up the matter ot the
"Monthly" first. The business of that
would influence the work of the Trustees
especially the work of the Secretary.
Mr. J. M. Horner moved "That a com
mittee of three be appointed by the Presi
dent, whose duty it shall be to revise and
so change our Constitution or by-laws that
our members may be more equally and
justly assessed and their rights as planters
be as well or better maintained; and to

Mr. Baldwin did not wish to continue
another year on the present basis
sis. He j
therefore moved an amendment
ttee to tiVt .

t'obiticl SpabUng w as in favor of the ii:o
tiou ;i- amended. The t hatter sdthat

thev could change the matter of the stock.
but thev could make
ruiigement in relation t the number o
Trustee- and the vari. j-ar:i !es in the by
laws. It seemed to hit;. tiat they would;
not be right in hanging the amount of :
the slot k. but they Could put oil pvrsomd'
assessments or they Could agree Upon a j
similar M-"iiiUit on the stock. It would
be quite right to have an asse-sjuenl V.i the .
basis of the tonnage. There were certain
things ifr whiih they did not receive bene- ,
fit according to the tonnag--. j
Mr. J. M. Horner said the company was ;
organized in a manner suitable for con-
trolling large properties. They had noth- ,
ing of the kind to control and did not ex-j
pet t to. c'ould they not have a company j
from which all the bent tits would accrue!
without the cumbersome charter'.' Atj
present thev were tied down to certain !
things. bet it be something lite a club. ;
There were many associations of that kind j
in America and elsewhere. j
Mr. lialdwin .tbl the t ha iter plat cd the!
company upon a basis which gave it a :
power it would not otherwise possess a j
proper business basis. i
The Treasurer considered it would be a ;
mistake tt) abandon the t barter if they j
were going to carry on the association, i
because they might not get it re
newed upon the present basis. At
the same time there w as not the life in
the association that he would like to see.
He thought the planters might do much
by bringing back to the association some
that had gone out with Colonel Spree kel.
Colonel Spalding said one gentleman had
told him he would like to come back. Per
haps Colonel Spreckcls had made a mis
take in going out. It was no benefit to
him, ami certainly not to the association.
The Treasurer said that many would
like to come back.
Colonel Spalding said there had been a
certain amount of hard feeling among indi
viduals and it had crept into the society.
He knew of no reason why it should be so.
The amendment wa then put and car
ried. The President then nominated the
following committee to give effect
to the resolution, viz.: Colonel Spald
ing, Messrs. J. M. Horner, H. P.
lialdwin, R. Halstead and P. C Jones.
A proposal tt add the name of the Presi
dent was unanimously approved.
On motion of Colonel Spalding, the mat
ter of "The Planters' Monthly" for the
next twelve months was taken up for dis
cussion. The Secretary stated that the "Gazette"
Company had taken the business respon
sibility ; they received the subscriptions
and the company paid them $30 a month
on the understanding that they were to de
liver a free copy to each member. They
would not make any other terms unless it
were for them to receive a lump sum, be
cause they diil not consider it would pay
them. If the company took over the busi
ness arrangements they would be placing
themselves in the same position that the
"Gazette" Company did not care to as
sume. The present cost, including the
salary of editor and secretary, was $1,000 a
vear. That is the sum that would have to
be provided for.
Colonel Spalding expressed his approval
of the work of the Secretary. He proposed
to double its size. He desired to have a
magazine really of service to every man
in the planting interest in the country. If
they did nothing else they would do more
towards keeping the company handed to
cr(ther than anvthincr thev could do. The

He desired to know whether the Secretary
could still continue to devote his time to
the editing as he had done.

Mr. Macfie was in favor of giving it over
to the '"Gazette" Company to do the edit
ing, if Mr. Thurston did not care about it.
He suggested that the Secretaryship be
also given over.

South Carolina jumps all the lntermediAta

;he piedmont section of the state the azoic
rocks stand out sharp and abrupt from

bright and swiftly flowing streams of that
region. A little further down the slope
;he drift covers these rocka, and they are
still there;an I the excavations at Columbia
bring out a horde of blue and flecked
zrauite. A little lower, there is, la popu

burg they bored 1,100 feet for artesian
water, and found drift all the way down
;lay, sand, mid marl.
Still coming down the slope, one reaches
i point where the sand has traveled so far
from its original matrix in the Biue ridge
'.hat it is completely triturated, and the
fulls have no consistency. Along this line,
fit an average distance of perhaps sixty
.Tiiles from the coast, is a line of sand hills
which seem to have been shaped by the

generally unhealthful, "low country,"

royalty to the . rate for all they took out of
navigable waters ir from state land, and
last year the state received $175,000 from
hat source. As much was taken from
private lauds, the yield must have ex

pierced are over twenty feet thick; and In

strata is superimposed with dirt between.
When first mined the rock is dark gray or
nearly black; after being washed and
ground it is a lighter gray. The com

it is expected that the total yield of the
