There are other men here who would make able and most credit able representatives, But Mr. Smith has, without any doubt, a. larger gen eral experience in the affairs of these Islands than any other living man. As Attorney-General, he became familiar "with civil and criminal laws. As a member of the Cabinet he became fam iliar with the land laws. As a friend and personal adviser of the late Capt. King, he became familiar with the affairs of the Interior office. Having been a planter and manager of a plan tation, he is familiar with the needs of the planters and the condition of the laborers. docks, who may inform strangers about routes and fares, and generally superin tend the hack service. These numerous offenses make tour ists indignant, and hurt the character of the place. If you wish to know how city is governed, watch the hack trade.

This additional stock represents no cash, but does represent the probabil ities and possibilities of the future value of its assets and its net income.

As the legislation proposed in the Hawaiian bills now pending in Con gress contains some novel matters, "which are not exactly in accordance fit. - I . . m Tvun American traditions, there is some danger that amendments may be mane wnicn would satisty no one. Congressmen freely confess that they tire not familiar with the political his tory of the Islands. They will natural ly adhere to the traditional American system. This is a safe policy to adopt, unless there are good reasons why it should not be followed. As the committees of both Houses have agreed on the form of govern ment for this territory, it is presumed Ao be the form approved of by the Re publican party. The Democrats will -criticise it, and it is understood that the Opposition here will join with them in urging amendments which may -change the fundamental principles of the bills regarding a qualified suffrage. Mr. W. O. Smith's opinions may not be acceptable in Washington, but his accurate statement of facts will be. He will be confronted with some embarrassing questions regarding our followed by young und inexperienced communities, are closely adhered to in the older communities, which are con servative, and have learned some les sons from a bitter experience. It i hardly to be expected that business men who are suddenly confronted with extraordinary conditions, and unex pectedly large financial problems, should study the methods ami exper iences of older communities. Kach community must have its own exper ience, and abide by it. The Advertiser, some months ago. indicated what the history of the values of the stocks in all new imlus trial enterprises has been, in other lands. I he events here show tuat commercial and financial history only repeats itself. And so it will to the end. Out of every one hundred indus trial corporations organized during the last forty years on the Mainland, nearly ninety-live have gene to the wall. The American brain and ener gy has failed to sustain them. The "unknown factors" caused their ruin. This fact is not an argument against the promotion of industrial enterprises.

THE SWINDLING DKlYftttS. The attention of the Attorney-General and the Marshal is again called to the constant vexatious overcharges made by some, and altogether too and the difficulty of predicting what the dangerous and unknown factors may ba . Secretary of Agriculture Wilson has predicted that within ten years the United States will supply their own consumption of sugar from the sugar beet. If this should prove to be true, the country will, after that .peri od, become an exporter of sugar, and be forced into competition with the sugars of the world. This prediction of the secretary is, in the opinion of manv whose judgments are entitled to respect, optimistic and exaggerated. But Willetts & Gray's circular declares that the sugar beet crop of the Main land will, this year, amount to 110.000 tons. This crop will, therefore, sup- i i m i til 1 1 WML ( IN ) V PRICE J RMISl?

If the authorities chooso to push the matter vigorously they can scop tliese overcharges. It has been done in other places and can be done here. The repu tation of a Niagara Falls hack driver, twenty-five years ago, was that of a tKmmou thief. Nearly every visitor atxthe Falls was imposed upon. Hut a mayor of the place was finally elected, after this grievance had con tinued for many years, who resolved to stop this species of petty thieving, and he stopped it. He did not wait .for complaints, but sought for them. and employed strangers to ride in the "hacks and, when swindled, report the fact at once. He became a holy terror to these law breakers ami secured a complete reformation. Moreover, it is unjust to the hones: iiack drivers to allow these swindlers ty do business. If the regulations about hack hire are practically sus pended, by permitting these swindlers to have it their ownway.it casts odium upon the honest drivers and in the end, makes them law breakers.
