In these prosperous, but perilous
lays of Hawaii, the fact t.iat the price
of food must to a largo extent regu
late the price of wages seems to
go unnoticed. 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.

The late Pope, Pius IX., was a hu

lot of the Oriental bishops, noted for
their uncleanly persons, asked for t!u

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

soldiers water, externally and -internally,
Heaven will not feel insulted. Even

'1 HE DEVIL.
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
