The gentlemen who are sincere about
Setting an authoritative declaration re
garding the extension of the Constitu
tion to these islands have sail another
way of easily settling the question, and
those who are interested in law suits
involving the Constitution, should as
sist them. President McKinley, as the
Executive, has power to direct the lo
cal officers to collect no duties on im
lortel American goods. lie may use
the same power, whatever it is, which
he used in suspending our elections.
Wly have not these gentlemen sub
mitted the point involved in the Pea
xx.k case to the Secretary of the
Treasury, with a request that there be
tin executive order for the repayment
of dirties illegally collected? The Ad
ministration would be forced at once
to pass upon the Constitutional ques
tion. If the Newlands act is uncon
stitutional in this respect and these
Bontleraen can convince the Secretary
that it is, he will, by the President's
order, direct that no ditties be levied
on American goods imported into Ha
waii. Why bother a territorial court,
that has no Federal jurisdiction, about
the case, when the head of the nation
can readily pass on it? He took the
"bit in his teeth" in the election mat
ter. He can take it again in the tariff

his own employees here are laying
down "bad law," he can correct their
rrors with the stroke of a pen.
While the President will give no
general advice, at the request of a citi
zen, he must and will correct a griev
ance, such as the illegal extortion of
money, under the claim that it is a
lawful tariff rate. As the laws of the
United States have not been generally
extended to this Territory, and the
President suspended the election laws,
.although the Newlands' Resolution
made them valid laws, he surely will,
in the case of a personal grievance,
involving loss of money, suspend or
modify our customs laws, if they are
If w.i'Lh the request to remit the

If the Galicians, now in prison for
the violation of their contracts with
the Oahu Sugar Company, have beefn
maltreated by the agents of the com
pany, they should be released from
their contracts, under Section 13SS of
the Masters and Servants Act. This
act provides for their release for any
cruelty, mis-usage or violation of any
terms of the contract, and the Dis
trict .Magistrate is authorized to pass
judgment in the case.

A book of 100 pages has been re-'
contly issued by the Department of
Agriculture .in Washington titled
Progress of the Beet-sugar Industry
of the United States in 189S."
It shows the revolution in agricul
tural methods' which has' been made
by the scientific methods in compari
son . with the. old Kule-ot thumb
ways which have repressed the ad
vance of agriculture. The Department
and the Experimental Stations, in
spite Of the indifference of the major-
ity of the farmers, have done for the
farmers that which they could not do
for themselves, that is, apply the scien
The prospect of getting a new and
profitable industry, has attracted the
farmers, and, under the old ways, a
series or careless inaennite experi
ments would have been made, involv
ing a great loss ot time ami money,
and in the end, discouraging the farm
Under the new system, every experi
ment that trained heads could think
of ihas been tried in nearly every State.
Instead of a thousand desultory re
searches, in a State, there has been
only, one conducted at each Station,
and all of the knowledge that Ger
many or France could supply has been
made available. The farmer, simply
for the asking, has an amount of ac
curate knowledge placed before him
that twenty-five years ago, it would
have cost him a fortune to obtain.
One of the most valuable contribu
tions to the knowledge of this subject
are the opinions of the experts of the
Department on the probabilities of the
success of beet cultivation in different
States. A beet-sugar belt has been
drawn, and the farmers advised no:
to attempt its cultivation below, or
south of that belt. The farmers, ot

One of the historians relates this story
"When Walpole was Prime Minister
nf fireat Britain, the relations be
tween Great Britain and Spain were
strained on the .question of the right of
search upon the ocean. Captain Jen
kins who was master of an English
eehooner, arriving home, reported that
while near the coast of tuba he was
captured by a Spanish cruiser; that the
Spaniards cit off one of his ears, and
then let him go with his ship. Jen
kins had carried this ear around for
