THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER : HONOLULU, APRIL 1G, 1S9S.
r q THE PACIFIC Commercial Advertiser. W. r ARMSTRONG - EDITOR. SATURDAY : APRIL 1G. AN INDUSTRY. THE WISH ADMINISTRATION OF CHAK1TAIJLK FUNDS. In civilized States there has been much complaint that so many magni ficent charitable gifts fail to accom plish large results. Theue failures have created prejudices against chari table bequests. Many rich, and profes sedly pious men with worldly wisdom decline aiding or increasing these gifts, -because- they have no confidence in their proper and best use. Those who have been engaged for years in solicit ing such gifts, know of this reluctance only too well. Therefore when a magnificent chari table use is created, like that for the benefit of the Kamehameha Schools, the public is under the strongest moral obligations to use its influence in favor of the best use of the gift. To neglect the matter, to refuse to interfere, is a crime of moral negligence, because if the charity is not well administered, it discourages the making of similar gifts, and breeds skepticism in the minds of men who have the means of doing great good. In suggesting that the Kamehameha Schools, as well as other similar schools, are not conducted according to the wisdom of the hour, it is done with the consciousness that problems of education are not easy of solution. Any criticism moreover on present me thods, must suggest better methods, or it is worthless criticism. The younger natives are in a critical condition. They face at least four stronger races, that are increasing rapidly. Friction between them in creases. It is not the struggle of an eaual race, but a weaker race, at very close quarters. We are not discussing the belief that the race will soon die out. We assume, that it may continue and. under the most favorable condi tions, hold its own, however improb able it may be. Any error in the training of the younger people of this race, involves Prions results. The old missionaries did not have before them the prob lem of today, the industrial and man ual education of a soft race, confronted with at least four hardier races. The difficult problem Is one of today, and is before the present and coming mission ary. When we see that the average na tive has less of the faculty of organi zation, than the average man of other nationalities, we fear that he must go to the wall in the competition. When it is said that the average native wo man does less sewing per day than the average Portuguese woman, it means another going to the wall on these lines of labor. Under these conditions, we believe that it is a correct proposition to state that the manual and industrial educa tion cf native youth, must bo generally in industries which furnish products Tor the world's markets, and not for the home markets, in which they will undoubtedly lose by close competition. It is their only hope. Any depression in the sugar business here, means general loss of work by mechanics and seam stresses, in the home market. The na tive goes to the wall first. If the native goes to the wall, what are the benefits of the great charitable gifts for their special use? If this proposition is true, the ques tion arises, are there small industries which come within the means of the native youths of both sexes, that will place them beyond this severe and grinding and increasing home compe tition? That such industries may be created goes without saying. But it is true, and it is a discouraging truth, that it requires rare ability and organ izing power to make even a small in dustry successful. The man who can make a success of an industry, gener nii,r tni'Dc Mm rf himself first. And till J IU.IIIK. - " ' ' if he is a true and rare Apostle of In dustry, a missionary to the heathen who have never seen the light of thor ough training he is usually handicap rwi hv tiiP men behind him. Here is J V VA J " the rub. A genuine Apostle of Indus try is usually a crank. He undertakes new projects. Conservative men are naturally not fond of new projects. It means pioneering, and that is hard work. One may preach a hundred ser mons easier than he can successfully cultivate scientifically an acre of beans. We can merely hint at the points involved in securing the best use of these great charitable gifts to the na tives. It is unfortunate that all dis cussions of this kind, which are gen erally welcome in business affairs, are quickly resented by those who admin ister mixed secular and religious af fairs. It is the history of charitable uses. A belief in Revelation, it is said. saxes the soul. But the body which is the temple of the soul, cannot be saved by beliefs, but by hard and intelligent work. It is only of late, that those who administer charitable uses, see the su preme value of providing for the body. Referring to what we have &aid above, concerning industries, we pre sent the matter of the vanilla bean cul tivation on these Islands, because it was suggested by Mr. Young, the "King of Tahiti," who has made a fortune out of it, as well as out' of the pearl fisheries. He visited these Islands about a year ago, and is known to be the pos sessor of one of the most valuable col lections of Polynesian curiosities. He informed us that many of the natives of Tahiti made comfortable livings out of the cultivation and preparation of this bean. Its market is in the great Hrl He believed that it V L l 1 L O v i. i" v .... - - migh be made a valuable industry here, if the people were properly trained in its cultivation. The value of the beans raised in Tahiti in the year 1890, was $200,000 If $200,000 were divided among the heads of families in these Islands, so that each received $20 per month from it, about 830 families would receive support from it, or in all, about 4,000 neonle. The men, the heads or wmni, could engage in other work, if neces- arv while the women and children would easily do the light cultivation and preparation of the article. If the native girls were carefully trained for this industry, they nuVbl Ut J v . - , would become, if they choose to be, in dependent. It would open up employ ment, to the Portuguese women as well We are extremely suspicious of fig ure in projected industrial enterprises Thev "lie" dreadfully, uui a. &WiuCuU DEBTORS AND THEIR CREDITORS.

With Digestion Perfect. j ' My mother was subject to sick head aches and indigestion for over a year She was unable to stand for any length of time, and was obliged to stay in a dark room as she could not bear the light. She had no appetite whatever and herstomach was so weak she could not retain what food she did eat. She also had severe pains in her head. She suffered so much that she became but the shadow of her self. One day I happened to read a tes timonial about Hood's Sareaparilla. It Sounded So Truthful I persuaded her to try this medicine. Before finishing the first bottle there was an improvement in her condition. She no longer threw up her food and her head ache was not as severe. She took in all four bottles of Hood's Sarsaparilla and several boxes of Hood's Pills and regained her weight. She is now enjoying the best of health. Her digestion is good and she can eat almost anything she wishes. She is 42 years old and says she feels as well as when she was 16. Hood's Sarsaparilla made a complete cure in her case."

Maxwell as a trained expert, Whether or not the natives will re spond to such methods of training is another question. The question now is what is the best administration of a snlendid charitable gift? What is the best administration of other generous charitable gifts? If the natives will take no advantage of industrial train ing there are many growing children of other races who will. HOBRON DRUG COMPANY, Wholesale Agents TIMELY TOPIC5 fi to - 'Sale: M :ea!
