In another column we publish an article from the San Francisco "Ex aminer" of February 26th, showing what the Portuguese laborers who have gone to San Francisco think of these Islands. Some of their statements are true, while others are so wide of the mark as to leave the impression with strangers that slavery exists on the Islands, which is really not so. THE INFLUENCE OF BAD EXAMPLE. The demoralizing influence of the Sugar Trust is evidently making its way to the uttermost parts of the earth. It is rumored that Hart and Horn have formed, after much coquetting and fenc ing, a combined candy trust, under the suggestive name of the "Harts-horn Candy Trust," which will be well, to use a comprehensive terra, rough on rats generally. Xo other candy refineries will be tolerated in competition. "Get under the blankets with us, or bust," is the motto of this dangerous monopoly. It is further rumored that Hait, with his son James, will leave per Kinau next week to establish candy centers all along the line. What next? P. S. We don't vouch for the truth of the above rumor. San Francisco Examiner, Feb. 26. The Portuguese colony of this city is being rapidly increased by arrivals from the Sandwich Islands. Every steamer brings its quota of steerage passengers, who upon arrival present a rather sorry appearance. All seem to be glad to have reached California and rejoice that they are no longer virtual slaves under the "contract" system prevailing upon the islands. One of the newcomers in a conversation with an "Examiner" rep resentative who speaks Portuguese, said that the planters did not want any whites there but themselves, and so the Germans, Scandinavians and Portuguese &re glad to leave the miserable serfdom on the plantations as soon as their con tracts expire. The Asiatics, Chinese and Japanese and South Sea I landers are now the principal laborers on the plantations. The white workingmen of Honolulu and other towns are banding together against the Chinese and they are arousing a strong anti-Coolie feeling. The "mutineers," as they are called, now in power told the Portuguese that if they voted for them they could have what the- wanted, but once in power the voters were left to do as they pleased and bluntly informed that if they didn't like the country they could leave it, which they did gladly. The Honolulu papers, said the re porter's informant, never tell the truth about what what is going on in the isl ands. The last cargo of Japanese serfs this is what they are when they once touch the islands were not allowed to land in Honolulu, but were transshipped to the island steamers and parceled out among the planters like so many ani mals. The "mutineers" in control of the government were afraid to let them land in the city for fear of coming in contact with their countrymen long resi dent on the islands, who would post them as to the fate in store for them. All the guarantees of the Japs under the Gibson administration have been set aside by the existing Government. Life on the plantations, as depicted by the newcomer, is brutalizing in the ex- extreme to white laborers, who are com pelled to work from dawn to dark under "lunas" (overseers) armed to the teeth, and with authority to shoot down any one daring enough to make a break for liberty. The steamer Australia, which arrived on Wednesday, brought 170 Portuguese, who for five years past have been en gaged on the Hawaiian sugar planta tions. They are now preparing to go to the country. "It was too hot down in the islands for us," said Emilio Pendennis to an THE TWO LIBEL CASES. It will be remembered that on Mon day a woman giving her name as Har rison swore out a warrant for the arrest of the editor of this paper on a charge of libel by publishing an article headed for many of them drop off at Fresno, "Driven Out of the Country." The case Tulare an! at various other points in "Examiner" representative yesterday. "We are not accustomed to so warm a climate, and thought California would suit us better. Besides, we have learned that we can make more money here. Prior to leaving Portugal many of us were engaged in raising wine and fruits of various kinds. We understand the fruit business very well." Others told the same story. They are rather a good-looking lot of people. There are many women and children with them, and some young girls, who are models of old country beauty. "There are a great many Portuguese coming to California," said H. Laidley, the Portuguese Consul, yesterday. "There were 200 or 300 last year, and every train brings some here. Not all of them reach SanFrancisco, of course, were taken ill. They were not proof against all tne exposures to which they were subjected. They found the effect ive remedies for these common ailments in the roots and herbs which grew in the neighboring forests and fields. They had learned that nature had a cure for every ill. These potent remedies as sisted their sturdy frames to quickly throw off disease, and left no poison in the system. The unpleasant feature of modern practice with mineral medicines is the injurious after effect on the system. May not modern physical degeneracy be due to this feature? A drug-saturated system is not in a natural, consequently not in a healthy, state. If any of the main organs are clogged with traces of the mineral poisons used to drive out a particular disease, tne wnoie machinery ot lite is deranged, and early deeaj of natural powers is the inevitable result. There can be no question that reme dies from the laboratory of nature are the best. If they are as efficacious, they have the advantage of having no after sting. S.Their efficacy .if properly compounded, and the proper remedy applied to the proper disease, will not be doubted. The experiences of ages proves it. Their disuse has come about princi pally through the rapid congregation of people in cities and villages, rendering these natural remedies difficult to ob tain. Progressive basiness enterprise has lately led to putting up these old time remedies within reach of all classes. The proprietors of Warner's safe rem edies, in faith that the people of t o-day would be benefited by using the simple remedies of log cabin days, have caused investigations to be made, and secured the formulas of a number of those which long and successful use had proved to be most valuable. They will, we learn, be known under the general title of "Warner's Log Cabin Remedies." Among these medicines will be a "Saisaparilla" for the blood and liver, "Log Cabin Hops and Buchu Remedy" for the stomach, etc., "Log Cabin Cough and Consumption Rem edy," aremedy called "Scabine," for the hair, "Log Cabin Extract," for internal and external use, and an old valuable discovery for catarrh, called "Log Cabin Rose Cream." Among the list is also a "Log Cabin Plaster" and a "Log Cabin Liver Pill." jdrrriisrmiiits. S RCYALtSXAf J J IPS LAEGE IMPORTATlov O F SILKS! SILKS !
