described : l'By dint of insisting
upon some facts, ignoring other
facts, and sneering at ail witnesses
whose testimony does not agree
with its theories, it succeeds doubt
less, in producing a certain im
pression upon the minds of its
readers, and hy echo on the larger
community. A half truth is often
a whole falsehood and by dint of
telling half the truth the Evening
Post succeeds in producing the im
pression which a whole falsehood
would produce."

Any one who reads Mr.
Ashford's sayings to San Fran-
cisco reporters must read be
tween the lines to understand
that he does not mean half
that he is reported as saying.
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

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

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
