An interesting collection of news clippings assembled by a sugar planter with a keen interest in problems of climate, labor supply, and competition with other south sea producers, as well as the promotion of planters interests extending through the annexation of Hawai’i by the United States. The collection may have been assembled by R. A. Macfie as the name is highlighted in one article, and a manuscript document is bound in with his name.

Following are a few of the article titles to provide the flavor of the album: “Who wants more chinese?” — “A report on the Sugar Industry in Queensland” — “Petition from Kauai” [To Kalakaua on maintaining a high moral standard in the administration of government, signed by Z.S. Spaulding, George H. Dole and many others] — “The Hawaiian Crisis” [on the events of 14 – 19 August 1880] — “The Need of Laborers” — “Are Hindus Desirable?”
