The people of these Islands every year are becoming more dependent upon imported foods, both from the East and the West. We im port meats, vegetables, fruit, groceries, flour, grain and hay.. On the whole, it is safe to say, that wo import more food for man and beast, in proportion to the people, than Great Britain doe3. In fact, we are now entirely dependent. Great Britain i3 also dependent largely on imported food, and her prosperity is undoubted. Prince Kropdtkin, in that remark able book, "Fields, Factories and Workshops," to which attention was -called the other day, discusses thi3 dependent condition of Great Britain and declares that in the end it will place the wage earners of that country at a disadvantage. He shows by reli able data that the British may obtain from their own soil the food needed by the entire population, but that they unwisely rely upon importations. As industrial expansion continues, and each nation, through a distribution of industrial machinery and the use o! educated labor, supplies it own needs of manufactured goods, the competi tion for foreign trade will increase and the profits be reduced. The Amer icans have largely reduced the iron trade of England, and, in due time, under the superintendence of American brains, the Chinese, with their vast re sources of iron and coal, will reduce the American trade in iron. Other pro ducts will be subject to the same con ditions. Kropotkin claims that im ported foods must cost, by reason of freight, handling and commissions, more than the foods produced at home. Therefore, in the coming competition, iho community which supplies its own foods will be able to fix the rate of wages below the rate prevailing in communities which import their foods. This factor in the cost of manufac tured goods -has only of late become important, because it is only of late that the industrial expansion has taken place. If his proposition is correct, the economic condition of Hawaii is not satisfactory. The cost of food is high. Tie price of meat is rising. With scientific cultivation one bullock to the acre may be raised. The ratio here i not known, but it is at least ten acres to the bullock. While hay and grain may be cheaply raised on the uplands, -they are hardly produced at all. Fish Tsimply a luxury, which is beyond the reach of those with moderate wages or incomes. The moment Federal laws are applied which restrict Asiatic immigration, the resident laborers, discovering their power to control the labor market, will agitate for the increase of wages in order to "live," if for no other reason. The day has passed when we can say- to these laborers, "If you will not ac cept the wages we offer you, you can leave." Labor will soon be King here, as 4t is on the Mainland. In demand . xng and fixing the rate of wages, the cost of living will be an important factor. Discontented laborers are a standing menace to law and order. As the time gradually approaches, when the ynited States will produce a surplus of sugar, and be forced into the markets of the world in competi tion with the sugars of the West In dies, Russia, Germany, Africa and Aus tralia, it :3 not the scientiGc produc tion of sugar alone which will settle the cost of producing it here, but the oat of feeding and satisfying the Jaborers. The enormous growth of the manufacturing interests of Philadel phia, Is largely due to the cheapness -of land and homes of the working classes as well as the low price of food. Ihiring the many commercial depres sions which have caused so much dis tress throughout the land, Philadel phia has suffered the least, because of iier opportunities to furnish her work ing people with food and houses at the lowest rates. It is not the duty of the government to consider these questions, unless the community impose it upon them. It 4s tho high and, indeed, solemn duty of the Intelligent men to take up these perplexing questions that confront U3, and deal with them earnestly, seri ously and effectively.

During the sessions of :!.e Kieui. rciimeuicai council in itomo, ai lot of the Oriental bishops, noted for their uncleanly persons, asked for t!u :Ioly Father's blessing. They knelt be fore him, and the Pope raised his hands and said, (in a whisper). "Very dirty as ye all are, (in a loud voir-p). I give ye my blessing.' If Honolulu will reserve her blessings, but give the soldiers water, externally and -internally, Heaven will not feel insulted. Even the Flag wavers, and those who blow the confusing notes of the "un-American" blast should descend from their perches and "wave" and "blast" for bathing arrangements.

Dr. Bishop in the Friend says: "That a personal devil is actually stimulating the depravity of men. and organizing the forces of crime and wickedness, is a working hypothesis of no small utility." Dr. Shew of the Connecticut Insane Asylum had a patient some years ago. who was permanently insane. H had been a distinguished and eloquent preacher. After thirty years of sorvict in the pulpit, he arose in it one Sun day morning and after giving out his text said: "Brethren and sisters. I have for thirty years preached agair.s the Devil, but during these years I havi never acknowledged his usefulness in this world, and I shall now, and here after from this pulpit show to you that he is more useful than many of the deacons who are in their pews before me." At this point the deacons eot to- ether, cautiously approached the pul pit, attracted the preacher's attention, and got him out of the church. The next day he was taken to the Asylum. This divine agreed with Dr. Bishop that tho Devil was "a working hypo thesis of no small utility," and as a useful member of society, had a most i..-. .u u ira.. , t.,.. .
