Commercial Advertiser.
Mr. Cooper should discharge the du
lies of Attorney General v,i:h credit to
himsoif, because he has had consider
able judicial experience, and was held
in (nigh estimation by the Bar a.s a
judge, lie is also familiar with the
social condition of our mixed races
and will not make errors from lack of
knowledge. He is xdso familiar with
the roiiLne duties of the Attorney Gen
oraTs ofllce.
Ho has yet to show what his execu
tive, ability is in the rather difficult
position of President of the Rcard of
Health. The sanitary conditions of the
city requ-- constant attention, and in
enforcing sanitary regulations there is
always more or less friction. He will
undoubtedly mtake an efficient officer.
At the time, in 1897, when Mr.
Cooper, as acting Attorney General,
drove 'back to Japan 1159 immigrants,
tho Advertiser believed that it wa3 an
unnecessary act of cruelty, and, prob
ably, a violation of the treaty rights.
The subsequent payment of indemnity
was not however a recognition of the
correctness of the legal position taken
3y ;tho Japanese government.
At the time the poor unfortunate
immigrants were driven back, it seem
od as if he alone was responsible for
a cruel act, even if it was lawful. Hut,
an justice to Mr. Cooper, it should be
(mid that he only represented the
views of the dominant party in the
community which had declared in its
platform that all of its power and
inlluence would be used to restrict
Asiatic immigration. Guided as it was
3y lofty principles in its purpose to
make these Islands a -White Man's
country, it exacted of the Attorney
loneral and he responded to it, the
utmost vigilance in driving back the
Asiatic invasion. It was not JMr. Coop
or, 'but the community acting through
ttrim that forced the unhappy immi
grants home. The government must
represent the people.
Since that fearful outbreak of in
dignation against the .Asiatics,
fuho community, including the do
minant party, has found on a closer
and more exhaustive analysis of its
lofty principles, that it is a very nar-
row and "un-American" view ot the
matter to Tesist any Japanese invasion.
On the other hand, we are under the
strongest obligations as humble assist
ants in carrying the White Man's bur
den, to give the "open door" to the
Japanese. This we are now doing, and
If 'Providence permits, will continue to
do, until selfish politicians on the
Mainland interfere and arrest the good

!Mr. Cooper, as. he reflects xipon the
(position which he was forced to take
iy the dominant party, will quite agree
with Disraeli when he said that:
"There i$ .nothing in which the power
of circumstance is more evident than
in politics." Another power of circum
stance operates with overwhelming
force when there is a dollar in sight,
We hope that Mr. Cooper will, in the
coming years, the identified with the
progress of these Islands,, and, if he
desires to hold office, will' secure it,

alive to the importance of this mattc-iv
At the same time, their great su -cess
in the ne of water by irrigating meth
ods attracts the attention of the sugar
cane planters in all parts of the world,
and they are educating them to adept
the same course.
It is now said that the beet sugar in
dustry of California will be recon
structed, and that hereafter the lets
will I grown only upon lands subject
to irrigation.
The 'Planters' Monthly quotes iai
length from the discussion of the sugar
planters of Jjouisiana, at their annual
aneeting, on ie causes of the different
percentages of sugar in cane. In any
close competition in. the production cf
s gar, profit or loss will be determined
by the difference of this percentage. It
was stated in the debate that in De
merara and other countries the per
centage of sugar rarely rose above
twelve per cent, because the canes were
gorged with .moisture. In other coun
tries where it is dry, or there is a ces
sation of moisture, the percentage rises
to 16, 17, and even as high as 20 per
-cent. The same differences in sacchar
ine matter are found in the cultivation
of watermelons, and they are due,
aside from the chemical properties of
the soil, to the amount of moisture.
The Southern darky prays for dry
weather when his melons are ripening.
This effect of more or less moisture
on crops, so far as sugar is con
cerned, is well known to all intelli
gent planters, but the laymen under
stand it imperfecty.
The time will soon come when uie
amount of excessive moisture during
the season will " become an important
factor in calculating the values of su
gar plantations.
It is settled, of course, that a plan
tation with an ample irrigating sys
tem, Is of much greater value than
the plantation that trusts to Heaven
for rain, other things being equal. But
an the close and even fierce competi
tion In the production of sugar at the
lowest possible cost, which must take
place whenever protective duties are
abolished, a very little difference in
