THURSDAY, JULY 13, 1893. FACTS A!iD FIGURES. The three tables laid before the councils a ehort time ago by Minis ter Damon are, upon careful per usal, strongly suggestive that the material interests and large invest ments held almost exclusively by foreigners, chiefly American resi dents in Hawaii, must cut a pro minent and decided figure in the settlement of the future form of government for these islands. The tables referred to do not represent the entire wealth of the country, but such a large proportion of it that conclusions drawn therefrom will be approximately correct and applicable to the whole of the vested interests of Hawaii. Spsce will only allow a general summary of the total 9 of these clear and suggestive tables; but even such a statement carries on its face food for political as well as financial thought. Each table is complete in itself, and, for the sake of brevity, will be summarized so a3 to place the results immediately before the eye. The first table contains a detailed list of Hawaiian sugar plantation corporations, showing the invest ments iherein, together with the nationality of stockholders in each company. The table wa3 compiled during the month of JunelSOS, from the latest official returns. This table represents forty sugar companies, with capital stock ag gregating $23,224,300, of which $27,004,290 has been issued. The following is a summary of amounts invested by nationalities : American -. $18,594,095 Hawaiian-born American.- 2,9G0,2S0 Amcicau half-caste.-. 83,900 British 4,303.218 Ilawaiiau-born British 19G.200 British half-caste- 100,093 German.......... . 1,233,935 Hawaiian-born German. . 39,lGo German half caste- - 2.05S Native Hawaiian- 3S,991 Chinese 2o9,700 Chinese and Portuguese half-caste 34,000 Portuguese- 49,500 Other foreigners-- 3,500 The second table contains a de tailed statement embracing forty three Hawaiian corporations, other than sugar plantations, showing the amounts of the investments with the nationality of the stock holders. This table represents the bulk of the mercantile interests of the Hawaiian islands, represented by a capital stock of $6,150,705, of which $5,877,400 has been issued. The following is a summary of the amounts invested by nationalities : American - $2,690,994 nawaiian-born American... 948,197 American half-caste........... 33,473 British. - 1,2S9,520 Hawaiian-born British- 233,000 British half-caste 201,639 German- 299,523 Hawaiian-born German 28,539 German half-caste- 4,701 Native Hawaiians- 51,620 Chinese 44,640 Chinese and Portuguese half-caste- 36,763 Portuguese - 420 Other foreigners-- 13,505 The third table contains a de tailed list of twenty-two firms and partnerships representing sugar plantations and planting interests, not incorporated, compiled from agento' latest reports to June, 1893. The estimated value of these inter ests is $3,000,00J, held and con trolled by the following nationali ties : American S 415,000 Ilawaiiau-born American... 500,000 British - 1,193,000 German 515,000 Norwegian and Portuguese- 375,0.0 The corporations and firra3 rep resented by these tables aggregate a capital stock of $37,375,005, which, summarized by totals, gives the following suggestive result: American $21,700,CS9 nawaiiau-born American.. 4,403,477 American half-caste 122,373 British G,7S7,73S Hawaiian born British 429,2;3 British half-caste 361,737 German 2,04S,45S Hawaiian-born German 63,001 German half caste C,7",r Native Hawaiian. 00 611 Chinese 301,310 Portuguese 49,920 Norwegian 375,000 Other foreigners 17,065 There is no gue33 work about these figures ; they are all of record and constitute a plain statement of the investments by nationalities in the bulk of our commercial and agricultural industries up to date. Out of thirty-seven millions, Amer icans and Hawaiian-born Amer icans represent over twenty-six million dollars ; while pure Ila waiians are represented with a paltry ninety thousand dollar.-?, which, added to the investments of half-castes, barely suffices to raise the amount to half a million dol lars. These figures are in exact keep ing with the statements published in this paper heretofore, that the native Hawaiian pay3 less than one-seventh of the taxes, owns not more than a sixteenth of the land of the islands, while, up to the present time, he has held two thirds of the paid offices under the government. At the same time it must not be forgotten that the na tives represent 70 per cent, of the voters, and have proved themselves incapable at all points of carrying out an enlightened and progressive system of government, such as the advancement of our island civiliza tion now imparatively demands. WISE AND OTHERWISE. Paul Neumann's open letter to President Dole does not seem to have had the expected effect. The Dulletin apologizes for the letter in a sort of half-hearted way, in which it declares Mr. Neumann's inten tions were of the best and that he "meant in all kindness to save the I personalities of President Dole and his some highly-respected coadju tors from the humiliating conse quences" alleged to be awaiting the establishment of good, economical government in Hawaii. A "valued correspondent" has a somewhat livelier appreciation of the absurd ity of Mr. Neumann's letter, and does not hesitate to call the grand old fee-taker a political chump. President Cleveland has consent ed to act as arbitrator between Ar gentine and Brazil in their dispute for the possession of the state of Panama, and some of the unkind republican journals declare, that if it takes the president as long to make up his mind as in the Ha waiian affair the weeds are apt to be mighty high in the state of Panama before the dispute is set tled." The effect of the bounty on sugar production in the United States has been very stimulating to the industry there. Since the bounty law went into effect the production of domestic sugars has largely in creased, and last year reached 378, 000,000 pounds. This includes cane, beet, sorgum and maple sugars. Charles H. Hoyt has lately writ ten a new play called "The Milk White Flag," which scores the citizen soldiery of the United States. In Hawaii the "milk-white flag" represents the plain ordinary citizen, who eats poi without the aid of a uniform and thereby avoids unkind comment. TWO SAMPLE ROYALISTS. Spreckels' Hoy Has Caught Papa NordhoIFs Malady "Already" said Mr. Nordhoff, "their adherents are beginning to fall away from them and the end is near. There is only one thing that can save the islands, and that is the return of Liliuokalani to the throne. In the future I guess she will behave herself. "The discontents aro the mem bers of the old missionary part that is, they are descendants of the missionaries. For a time some of the planters joined with them, but the latter have gone back to the queen. The need cheap labor, and would be apt to lose it if the United States took possession. "Just before we left a sailing vessel arrived in port bringing with her a copy of the Bulletin containing the recent remarks of President Cleveland on the sub ject. They were construed to mean that annexation would not take place, and immediately there was a wild scene. The natives cheered, bonfire3 were built and the bands paraded the streets. The Provisional government is dead broke, and its end is near. In a brief conversation on the steamship this morning Mr. Spreck els st-ited that the annexationists had given up hope, and that the end of the movement was near. "Some of the leaders," said Mr. Spreckels, "will have to flee the country in a short time, and even tually the queen will be restored. " Her return 13 not only awaited anxiously by the natives, but also by the planters. Annexation means the ruin of every sugar planter on the islands, as it means good-by to cheap labor. Without cheap labor sugar cannot be grown with any. profit. " The annexationists have not got a cent, and they will never be able to get the loan they are trying for. In order to do so they will have to call an election, and an election will mean their overthrow. The only man in the party who has any means is Samuel M. Damon, the minister of finance. Evidently he does not intend to be held re sponsible for the debts of the gov ernment, for he i3 mortgaging his real estate, and turning all his pro perty in cash and other securities easily carried. President Dole has not got a cent. " Regarding that subsidy to the Oceanic Steamship Company, which you say Consul Wilder has given out is liable to be taken from us. I have only this to say : There was a special enactment passed giving us that, and it was voted for by the citizens of the islands. To take it from us and give it. to another company would require a similar vote, and that they could never obtain. As far as the subsidy is concerned, however, I may say that it has not been paid now for three months, simply because the government has got no money." S. F. Bulletin. $12,000,000 a Year for the Brit ish Navy. Lord Brassey in his " Naval An nual" for 1893, emphasizes the im portance to Great Britain of main taining a fleet sufficiently strong to effectively protect the British mer chant navy whenever such a neces sity may arise, and points out that such strength can only be gauged by comparison with that of the war vessels possessed by other pow ers. He thinks that an annual expenditure of $12,000,000 would certainly not be excessive for the British navy. The Daily Advertiser is deliver ed by carriers for 50 cents a month. Ring up Telephones 83.

Morgan, 3413-td AUCTIONEER. 307 July ic, iSg There is a season in the year when most dealers are out of certain lines of stock; we get out occasionally, but we till up as quickly as most people. For instance we've had to dis appoint some customers for table cutlery, but now we have all that is required, and of the very best quality. We have also filled up short lines of the celebrated "210G" Havi land, an article that never grows old. So many people here like hashed meat that we have im ported a new style and very good meat cutter that must win the admiration of the celestial who acts as manager of the culli nary department of your house. And when you are thinking of something for the kitchen, think again and get a tin of Putz polish that will brighten up every kind of metal. The water taps, that usually get dirty with age can be polished with Putz liquid so they will be as bright as gold. Individuals who need some thing to sharpen their wits or their razors on can find noth ing better for the purpose than one of Emerson's Kazor Strops. They are the best in use and sell ver3r cheap. We neglected to mention in our notice of Haviland China that ourstock now contains an assortment of chocolate pots such as are use in every house where people like to drink chocolate. If any of our readers are ad mirers of works of art, their attention is called to a very excellent water color sketch by the late It. C. Barnfield in our makai window. It is an island view and has been pro nounced by judges to be one of the late artist's best. The Hawaiian Hardware Co., 307 Fort Street, Honolulu.
