Mr. Ashford was long enough in Hawaii to convince the peo pie that he can tell the differ ence between "a 'awk han a au saw," and that he under stands full well the value of silence. He has about as much intention of heading a filibustering expedition as he has of returning here and standing as a candidate for office. C. W, is a little joker and the interview with the re porter in 'Frisco was one of his jokes. When Mr. Ashford left here, his main thought was to do something in the behalf of his brother. The people here who know him will not believe that a filibus tering expedition is in the line of assistance to that person. Some time ago, we pur chased a lot of European wire and immediately afterward some parties circulated a re port that the quality had been affected by some unknown cause and that it was not up to the standard of the Am erican product. We had a half dozen coils of the wire tested at the Iron Works and it showed a tensile strength of 2760 pounds. When this re port was published in this column, the wire was sought after by plantation managers and individuals from Niihau to Hawaii. The other day, to ob lige a skeptic, we ordered a hundred coils of American wire trom tne uoast ana as it reached the store, we sent a half dozen coils to the foun dry to have it tested. The result showed a tensile strength of 768 pounds or about 2000 less than the Eu ropean article. We violate no confidence when we tell you that this American wire will not be sold by us. We have an abundance of the European article ana can supply an sizes and in any quantity.

While our relations, with Japan were of no special consequence, our Minister Resident in Tokio served us well enough, though he was a "contract" operator. But we are now involved in relations with that country which demand from our representative vigilance and absolute loyalty to our Republic. It is of vital importance to know accurately and quickly what in fluences are in operation in that country which may cause any honor to his name and work, and an everlasting condemnation to those whose personal prejudices and religious cant cause them to . 1 give a trutntul appearance to a most outrageous falsehood.

An article upon the attitude of the New York Evening Post toward Hawaii, given in the last number of the Outlook, is of particular in terest since the editor, Dr. Lyman Abbott,expre8ses himself in a man ner which places him on the opposite side of the fence from his parishoner, Shearman. Dr. Abbott does not approve of the missionaries and their sons being held accountable for all the ills that have befallen Hawaii. The general plan followed may become an important paying crop further east tban Texas. Cul tivation increases the product to some thirty tons of green roots, which shrink to some eight tons when dry. The roots yield from 23 to 33 per cent of tannic acid, while oak and hemlock bark yield only from S to 10 per cent. Prices of dried canaigre root range from $25 to $30 per ton in the rough. In Europe from $50 to $80 per ton is paid, it is stated, and the demand far exceeds the supply. The crop per acre is said to be worth from $175 to $225, while the cost of planting and cultivating is about the same as that of the sweet po tato crop. The tannic acid from canaigre is said to be exception ally valuable for tanning uppers, fine saddlery and fancy leathers. It is U3ed also as a dyestuff. It deserves the attention of our farm ers who can obtain useful sugges tions as to its cultivation from the Agricultural Department at Wash ington. Column's Rural World.
