VOLUME OF TRADE INCREASING Opium Smuggled Ashore in Small Lots. Difficulty in Capturing: it Limited Force of ICustoms Guards. It has been the boast of the people of Lahaina that in days gone by as many as 200 sails have been seen in the bay there at one time. This was when whalers made this their headquarters, and Lahaina was the capital. Honolulu residents remember when the bay was dotted with merchant ma rine, and they remember, too, duriii; the past few years when the harbor has been practically without a sail. During the past year the shipping in Honolulu has increased to a wonder ful degree, and to the old-timers along the water front, it is an indication of a revival of the days when Honolulu was considered . a boon to shipping masters. During the past week thervJ have been three steamers flying the Jananese flac:. in port at one time, a circumstance that has nev er occurred before in the history of Honolulu. In connection with this it may be noted that within two days seven foreign steamers arrived in port. No better evidence of the commercial importance of Honolulu is needed than this. There are in port at this time 30 vessels discharging or waiting cargoes the majority being vessels plying be tween the Pacific Coast and Honolulu most of them, as will be seen by the following list, being vessels which have been running in this trade intervals, when the business warrant ed it, for years past. The Australia, Monmouthshire, Rio de Janeiro (left last night), C. P. Che ney, Klikitat, Ardgowan, Lurline, Al ice Cooke, S. N. Castle, Ceylon, Arch er, Irmgard, W. H. Dimond, J. C. Glade Marie Hackfeld, Samoa, Mohican Scray, Wm. G. Irwin, Honolulu, White Rose, C. D. Bryant, Matilda, S. P, Hitchcock, Amelia, Martha Davis, S G. Wilder, Northbrook, Andrake, R. P. Rithet. Besides these, there have ar rived within the past few weeks the Ten Shin-Maru, Sacura-Maru, Sin Shu Mam, Monowai, Coptic and Miowera. With this amount of shipping in port and nearly all the vessels discharging cargoes, it is not to be wondered, with the limited Customs force that opium i3 smuggled ashore and reaches the stores of dealers uptown. There are employed regularly along the water front by the Customs authorities five discharging officers and four guards, and on the night force there are eight regular guards and two inspectors. Jn a rush like occurred last week extra inspectors and guards were employed, but the force was not commesurate with the work to be done. Every one knows opium reaches the dealers, and the general impression is that it gets past the guards on the wharf. It is known, too, that quanti ties of it is landed on the other islands, or in out-of-the-way places on this isl and, at points not well guarded. When opium is captured uptown there is a howl against the Custom House, because the guards are not as alert as the policemen. The trouble ris that there are not enough guards to go around, and it cannot be expected that an appropriation of a trifle more that $1,000 per monia is sufacient Jo prevent smuggling in small quantities. It is said by men who handle the stuff that 250 pounds arrive here by each steamer and this is independent of what comes in crackers, kerosene tins and general merchandise. The easiest to catch is that shipped with goods, be cause the authorities are constantly in receipt of information from abroad, which assists them in ferreting out the stuff. Again, there are parties here suspected of being in the opium busi ness, and the law allows the Customs Department certain privileges in the matter of opening up goods. The greatest difficulty has been to catch the small trader, men who want to add to their income by bringing in from 10 to 7." tins of the stuff, and wlio are willing to take advantage of the limited force employed and get it ashore. The recent catch by the po lice department, supposed to have come off the Australia, is known to have been landed from a sailing vessel at a time when one man had two vessels to watch. These small smugglers are having an easy time of it, because of the small force, and until it is increas ed the price of dope will be low. and the police department will have the credit of making most of the hauls.
