Good citizen;, after it bocame clear that the majority of tbe natire voters would Hock by oojju to liavc coim together i heal jxAitics ma a intent okay on the welfare of Hawaii." And this was followed ly a paragraph sttrilditc at the men who made the of a republican iiarty in Ha-M-ail ttonHble. It is a wM known fact thnt Mr. Thurs-on was on tbe )niiu of ojxnil.v declaring for a fusion ticket at that time, and the taking down of the names of certain caudiilatt. and only the work of Mem. .10. P. Cooke, .1. A. Gtlumn awl .1. 15. Athertou prevented him from tRkius ch a step. After that he declared "it hi too late for fusion now," thfe in au effort to suare himself after Ills infamou. plan had Itcen epoed. And thin i the nan who in his newpler now talk about reputable republicans Imvi'iK knifed the rv'wblirau ticket. The Rreatot and most serious mistake that the reiHiblicaus of Hawaii eer made wait to alkiw L. A. Thurston, yclept the "dovil's irtner." to hanc outo the of the imrty. The party ik iK) more to liim than Is the democratic 'tarty or the independent party. He is a l'ariah in politic as he has always His name in connection with or ollice 1ms been to brine -.(on it discredit and dishonor. The onlj tactics he knons are those of the guerrilla. Square, manly fiehtin; is as foreign to him as to the bushwhacker between the line of contendins nratios. He has never been connected with any movement or any party in Hawaii that his presence did not damn it. The Hole administration owes more oi the feeJtu;; anvonp the itoople asainst it to this inati, 1. A. Thurston, than to all other causes combined. Devoid of political honor and filhal with jwliticnl 1 UritiRS odium upon the party with which he pretends to aftiliate and which bb btawls ready and willinj: to betray whenever he believes more can 1 made lietrayin? it than can Ik? by true to it. The republican imrty of Hawaii, if it hopes to win the conlkleuco of the iKH)ple. If it ho)e.s to ever win success, must fpVw out this human leech. He is a load that it cannot carry and be successful. His very presence, even by proxy, in republican councils is a stench iu the nostrils of all men who place honor above Iolf and who repudiate the theory that it is rightful and honorable to enter into a partnership with the devil, if necessary. to carry out one's iufamous machinations. The retort from Massachubetts that a umler of French Canadian lalorers have engaged to come to Hawaii for work en the sugar plantations will meet central approval. While it is much more to be desired that Americans be secured, the Frenclt Canadians are so much superior to any other laborers that have been suggested recently that everyone will hojv that the report that a number of them are coming here is true. The writer has urea much of the life of the French Canadians as laborers in the pine woods of Michigan and Wisconsin in the early eighties and more recently in the New England states. They are industrious, thrifty aud reliable. Of course they like a rollick with a bottle of wine occasionally, but they are a peaceful, orderly set of citizens as a w hole, loyal to the church and state and faithful servants of employers. They make good citizens and readily acquire a knowledge of American government and" American political methods. We desire to warn the planters, however, that they will not submit wry long to any form of contract labor. They arc ambitious and energetic and long to own a little nest of their own. As share farmers they will work from early dawn to dark, and no laborers will get greater results from the soil than these sarae French Canadians when they are to share in the profits. But they are not content to be mere slaves of the soil, and something more substantial must be offered them for the future, if it is desired to keep this very desirable class of laborer on the plantations, than so u.uch per jBoath and living ia barracks. -, -..-& -"?

THE HONOLULU BEFUBLICAS, FRIDAY, XOYF3IBER 16, 1900 I3CPOBTA2 CE OF The Republican bag on naineraps pointed oat tbe necesmry.of diversified fanaiac for tbe furore growth of and ."hovn the profits to be derbvd from other crops than snjar. Southern California his been as an illttstratjon of the advantages of faraifnc aad hohlincs by owner. The Los Anreles Titsw of a reccHt date tells a mot interestinr 5tory of the resalto of csali bokiiccs and diversified indostries as- shown bv the ceastts pftaras of tbe State of California. It take the jovea counties of Sooth-era California and compares them with rerea of tbe counties of the great wheat rrowins section of Xertbern California. Tbe evea soathem eoanties with their lopatatiott for ISi'O and l'JjO h given as follows: CQumty. 1000. 1S90. rx Aasele 17005 101.454 Onuee JD.'KW 135U Uironide 17.S97 .... Saa KeraanBito U7) 'SiAtK Saa Diero 3.1.090 34S7 Santa Barbara 1SJXU 17;"A Veatma 14JH7T 10,071 304.211 20130 In 1S&Q tbe opalatkn of what is now Utvecsid coonty was included in San and San Diego Th' aggregate incrMFe of these seven countie amounts to lOJL. or 51 per cent. TbN is about 40 per cent of the total increase shown by the 7 connties of the state, while Ijo Anceles alone, with its increase of (5&S44 shows just about 2.1 per cent of the increase of the 37 counties. Now, let ns turn to the record of seven northern counties, where big grain fields predominate over orchards. Here are the figures for seven of these counties, in 1!K' and 1S00, respectively: County. 1000. 1S00. P.utte 17.117 17.S:!i Colusa 7.34K 14,040 .Merced 0.12T. S0S3 Stanislaus 0.550 10M0 Sutter ."i.SSti 5,40f Yolo l'J.GlS Yuba S.C20 0,JK 71,252 7S.:W e Thee figures show a net aggregate decrease for the seven counties of 7,131 between 1S!K) and 1900, or over 0 per cent. Very aptly the Times says, the question at once arises: "What can iKssihly be the caue of such an astonishing difference in the progress of these two groups of counties during the past decade on the one hand an increase of over 50 per cent and on the other a decrease of nearly 10 per cent? It needs but a superficial glance at the conditions prevailing in the two sections to answer this question. In these seven northern counties big grain fields predominate over the orchards, the work" on them lnsing done by gancs of men. mostly unmarried, who work during the brief plowing and harvesting seasons, and then pack their blankets and leave for other parts. To a great extent the ranchers buy tlfeir dairy products, fruit, vegetables nnd other supplies, of Chinese truck farmers. On the other hand, in the southern counties small tracts are the rule, averaging in size from ten acres to twenty acres, on which are raised, by means of irrigation, horticultural crops which yield a handsome return to the owner who as a rule also produces his own fodder, and milk, and butter, and eegs. and vegetables, and even his own firewood. Consequently, his necessary cash outlay for living expenses is comparatively small, nnd a large proportion of the net returns for his crop can be spent on improvements, or for the comforts and luxuries of life, or be laid by in the bank. The difference :s. in brief, grain growing versm fruit growing, large tracts versus small holdings. It should be added that this is not a new condition of affairs. The census o 1SJK) credited more than 00 per cent of the increase to the seven southern counties while several of the grain growing counties in Northern California showed a decrease for the decade. These strikins statistics of the conditions iu California should not be lost upon the land owners of Hawaii. It is in the home thnt the strength of the state is founded, nnd it is to the home builder that this territory must look to its development in the future. Hawaii wants American citizens to come here and make homes and to help build up a great state, and this can best le accomplished by the fruit grower nnd small farmer. rj Honolulu's Odd Club. From the X. Y. CoimiKirciaJ advertiser. The Hawaiian Women s Club deserves n word of praise. It is unique in more wajs than one. It is a flourishing association, is not in debt, aud its meetings are characterized by peaceful intercourse between members. It is five years old and was born in Honolulu. Its founder was an American school teacher who formed the habit of inviting young girls to her home once a week for informal conversation on some topic of current Interest. These informal meetings into a club of thirty-four members, most of them Hawaiians. Several members were from the United States. China and Portugal. This year the president is a Chinese girl who wears her national costume when she presides at the club's meetings. Science Aids the Sugar Planter. From the Sujar Planter' Journal. The news has just been given out by Dr. Wiu. C. Stubbs. director of the experiment station at Audubon, of his having successfully cultivated species of cane which yield nearly a third more of sugar per ton. besides giving a greater tonnage to me acre, man uoes ijie orutnarv va riety of cane now commonly grown in Louisiana. Nothing more gratifying to the sugar planters of Louisiana could have been told than this, for while making rapid strides in the various mechanical devices for the manufacture of sugar, they felt that the beet sugar industry had surpassed them in regard to securing a betterment of the sucrose content by judicious seed selection. By a series of experiments covering a period of six years past. lr. Stubbs and his efficient corps has endeavored to select from a number of Trinidad canes, planted as experiment, those which were found to be best adapted, in growth and saccharine development, to the climate of Louisiana. After many paiaatakia comparisons and asalysea, it waa found that -. A" . K tno of the speciasea. T 74." and T. 05. trercfari superior to any erer grown here, they fcavinc averaged a sacre of 1C per cent. This yield is fully one-third ns sreat again as that of tb canes now grumi ia oar state, and is to be looked at in the lirht of a God-send to the susar industry. These new canes, besid? having the above mentioned characteristics, are kjnz jointed and Tery hardy. Their roots crow very dep and stronzz in fact they are reported a binr the only canes at the station tnat were not blown over by th" heavy wind of September 0th. Bsid. the rnbble from them attains excellent rand and rrows with creat vigor. As shipments of these valuable cane are now bvinr made to the planters throughout the parishes, no one should fail to avail themselves of the opportunity of procuring a bundle, which will be sent oat on application to Dr. IV. C. Smhbs. Audubon Park. New Orleans. A Sice Soiling Machine. . From the Chicago Xcwj!. Patents have been taken out for a rice-hulling machine, invented by a citizen of Cincinnati. The working part of the machine is a carborundum wheel or cylinder. There are corrnsations on the surface. and thes are dep and sharp, to cut tie hull without injuring the kernel. The rice will be fed upon the roll from the hopper above, and a stiff brush will hold the grain to the wheel while the hull is being taken off. A fan will then separate the husks from the grain. Yes, it is True He Did. From the Evening Bulletin. Apropos of the labored Advertiser discussion on knifing the party is it no: true that Mr. Thurston threatened to bolt the republican ticket "and advocate in his paper a citizens ticket of his own make up? Is it not true that he was dissuaded from this course by the given him by Cooke, Gilman and Atherton? They Slade Money. Cecil Brown and W. G. Cooper of the First National bank have made good a lot of money within the last ten days. tly signing their names 5.320 times each the same number of bank notes of the corporation lately receded from Washington and aggregating ?30,000 were made legal tender. 5 Flood at Ewa, The rain was the cause of flood at Ewa plantation, which, although it did no damage, stopped work on account of the mud. The field work could not be done. News of the Courts, The bond of David Dayton for -?500 as administrator of the estate of Henri Courtois was filed yesterday. The appeal lwnd of the Wilder Steamship company of S110.000 in the suit of Hind, et nl.. previously reported, was placed on file yesterday. J. A. Kodnner, executor of the will of A. A. Todd, has filed his final account showing a balance on hand of $411.50. He asks for discharge and a cancellation of his bond. A. de S. Canavarro has filed a petition in the probate court for letters of administration for the estate of .lose Antonio de Silva, deceased. The petition will- be heard December 21. KII G-ETS FIVE TEAKS. Native Convicted of Burning, a Cane Field at Wainae. Ivii. a native Hawaiian, was yesterday sentenced to five years at hard labor for malicious burning. The trial took place yesterday before a jury in the circuit ourt and was quite brief. Last March Kii set fire to a field of tsugnr cane, the property of the Wainae company, and was arrested aud bound over to the grand jury. That body found a true indictment against him of two counts. Besides setting fire to a cane field himself. Kit also commanded and compelled Nalopi to do a like act and was held to answer us an accessory be- iore the crime. The witnesses in the trial were Puug Chee. Ah Lok. Fred Meyers and Judge Kekahuna. The evidence was all iu early in the afternoon and the jury was out but a short time, when the verdict was returned, after which Judge Humphreys pronounced the sentence. MATTERS CONSIDERED IN EXECUTIVE COUNCIL The executive council met yesterday, transacting but little business. The correspondence upon the subject of contesting the election of Kobert Wilcox as delegate was read by Attorney General Dole together with his brief. The matter was not discussed by the other members of the council. An application for a dealer's liquor license by Kobert AVaialeale was refused. The leakage of the sewer system was discussed by J. A. MeCandless. The contract allows a leakage of not more than 40 gallons per minute. The present leakage is 120 gallons per minute. The system could be legally refused on a much smaller leakage. The system will be much more expensive to the territory by reason of the extra pumping necessary to overcome this heavy leakage- It was decided to notify the contractors and allow them to do their best to remedy the defects. The subject will be up for consideration again. Egan and Hustace Answer. John J. Egan and Frank Hustace have filed their answer to the amended complaint of IL R. Hitchcock, et ah, wherein they are charged with the misappropriation of $120,000 in stock. They deny the main allegation that the stock was secretly, fraudulently or unlawfully made. They set up the claim that they are informed and believe that the plain tiffs had notice before they became stockholders that the paid-tap stock had been duly allotted to Egaa, Hustace and Foster. .. s?"
