JULY 15, 1832.
Thcro is no subject of greater interest to
tbo planter at tbo present timo tban that or
the- labor supply. Other matters may bo of
erinal importance, but none- greater. At the
organization of tho Planters' Labor and Supply
Company in March last, this question seemed
to bo of paramount intercst'to nearly all pres
ent. And since that time tho Tmntccn of the
Company haro been active in their efforts to
facilitato tho immigration of laborers. Hut
they hivo not met with tho success they had
hoped for. Tho present Ministry has mani
fested an opposition in this direction rvliich
will tend seriously to injuro the planting in
terests. Tho plan of attempting to procuro
laborers from Japan was earnestly considered
and after much pressure, realizing its import
ance, Mr. S. T. Alexander, was prevailed upon
to undertake the mission; but after all arrange
ments on tho part of the company woro com
pleted, tho Government refused to accredit
him to the Japanese Govcnimont. This was
so serious and unlookcd for that tho schomo
was abandoned. Tho harshness of the act of
tho Government was all the more aggravated
in view of the fact that tho wholo expenso
was to be borne by tht planter. Thcro were
many reasons why it seemed wise to seek im
migration from Japan, and hopes wcro raised
that much would como of this attempt. Bat
with, no adequato reason being assigned, the
project was defeated by tho Government. This
action is of such a character as to protoko
deep feeling, and of a nature which cannot bo
It was with solicitude that tho information
was received that the Government had during
tho past month sent instructions abroad to
arrest the 1'ortagueio Immigration, a class of
immigrants who had proved moat valuablci
both as laborers aud for population, aud hav
ing brooght largo faioilio-t with the view of
making their homes here they seem to be a
most desirable class. And in view of the
fact that they wero tho only immigrants who
were comtnr in any considerable numbers to
meet the existing and urgent need they were
considered iudispcnsiblc. Mr. H. A. 1 Car
ter, President of tho Hoard of Immigration
under the late government, undortook tho re
sponsible mission to Portugal to revivo tho
immigration which seemed in daogcr of be
ing altogether discontinued. His success has
been marked and of great benefit to this
country, the last arrivals per steamer Monnrtlt
being eminently satisfactory, appearing to bo
superior to former lots. Advices recently re
ceived atate that moro of tho iimo class wero
ready lo come in largo numbers, 'ow when
the movement was in full and successful oper
ation, it has btten interrupted. It is a calamity
lo the country. Nothing but regret aud dis
may can be felt by all at this pernicious and
rash conduct on the part ot the Ministry. We
hope that iu soaio way tho harm ulrcady dono
may be averted, or met- llut our apprehen.
eiuns are that tho results will be very disas
trous. Tho foregoing was written subaUuiiating
the grounds lakeu by tbo GazilU of this week
wbeu the P. C. A. daily of yesterday ap
peared, undeiUkiog to prove tbero was no
foundation for the views expressed. It be.
come oir duty tu show up duplicity again
in his attempt to play "fast aud looee" with
the paramount interest of the coulitry. The
alleged Clovurunciit'a hearty co-operation in
the desired Japan mission tucrciu paraded is
one of the moat barefaced falschoula yet at
tempted to force) ou this tbiuking community,
wheu it is a wsll-kuowu fw;t that tbo Labor
and Supply Company hail ample capital to
undertake tho mission they simply naked this
Government to accredit its representative for,
and who uas empowered to charter steamers
t for tho needs of tho service. This shonod
I they wero in earnest and meant business, and
j asked not any delay nt tho hands of the
Hoard of Immigration awaiting appropriations,
If tho Government could sharo In tho oxpenso
well and good, but tboy were and aro in n
position to undertake such action as tho ur
gencies of tho c.180 demand. And nliilo the
'. C A. in this absurdly trnncp.uctit attempt
In "contradict tho calumnies which have been
circulated against tho Premier" has endeavored
to "planter" tho leading interest of Hawaii In
tho foregoing, it has avoided uv allusion to
tho stepB taken to stop tho Portuguese immi
gration. Ou this Important branch of I alio r
supply it dodges tho question entirely. Wo
liopo our peoplo will bcc through the double
dealing hero attempted, mid not allow thoui
eclves to be uon over in confidence to ouo
who, sceinr his iwwcr alroady waning with
' fhoso whom he thought were nectired lo him
aud he to them forever, now attempts (his
usual game of) seeking favor from those who
liavo interests at stake, which ho tins dono his
lovel best tu rido over rough shod for tho paBt
GIBSON AND THE LOAN.
Tho editorial in the dally '. C. -.1. or Thurs
day last on tho Ten Million Loan Hill shows
us what wo may expect from tho country's
law makers, and shous, too, that that journal
recognizes tho enormity of its crime in letting
tho Million Loan crao dovelopo into some
thing of :i tangiblo shapo without so much lis
saying a word in opposition. The proprietor
of that paper, recognising during tho Into
campaign that tho "Loan" was tho lavorito
horse on the course among the natives, clung
to its tail and was dragged into tho Legislative
Hall. His refusal to oppose tho project whiles
it served as a stepping stono for himself was
n virtual indorsement of it. Time and again
ho has waxed virtuously indignant nt tboso
who have opposed tho bill and sought to de
molish them with his childish editorials. Ho
has in tho columns of his paper favored tho
negotiation of :v loan and givcti it to be under
stood that he would support u largo loan of
several millions. After thus patting tho na
tives on the back and encouragiug them in
their course, tho "statesman" Lilikalaui intro
duced a bill into the Hotiso providing for tho
negotiation of such a loan. When Mr. Bishop
moved its indefinite postponement Mr. Gibson,
his colleagues in tho Ministry, and a majority
of tho native members voted "no." And now,
at this lato hour, when tho Premier (ho liken
to be called Premier), realizes tho injury ho
has dono, his paper comes out editorially on
tho matter in plain languago for the first time,
and says: "It is rumored that hoads have
been counted, and that it is now considered
certain that tho Ton Million Loan Hill will ie
turti full-fledged from the Committee.
Wo very much regret to believe that thoro is
nuy foundation for bucIi rumors. No greater
mistake, financially or politically, could be
made by tho Lcgislaturo than to pass such a
bill as this."
As long as danger from tho bill was not
imminent Mr. Gibson preferred to remain
quiet on tho question and keep in with its
supporters; but now, when ho at laBt sees
what the result will be, he holds out his feeble
hand to stay tho tido of destruction which no
one has dono more to encourage than he. Hut
is not this auother Gibsoniau dodgo? Is this
editorial not intended to pavo tho way for the
inevitable? to prepare tho people for tho pass
age of tho bill? ThiB first, only and perhaps
last slap at the bill was evidently to make the
Premier solid with those who" opposed it.
But as Mr. Gibson got into the Legislature
and afterward into tho Miuistry by boing an
acknowledged supporter of the Loan, and as
he has said or done nothing against it, he cau
not consistently go back on his courso now.
If ho is sincere in his editorial utterances of
Thursday last ho must council tho King to
veto tho bill, and if the bill pass tho House
and receive the KiDg'u signature, it will then
bo in order for him to resign. Which way will
ON THE WBONO SCENT.
All men havo an equal right to form an
opinion on any subject whatever. Every man,
woman or child who visits thia kingdom is
probably moro or less favorably or unfavor
ably impressed by it. It inakto not the
slightest differenco whether tho latest arrival
from tho Hawaiian Islands who is undorgoiug
tho customary cross-examination bo a visitor
or a resident, an cx-Attorucy-Gcneral or a
taro merchant; they aro aliko subjected to an
impromptu or premeditated interview on tho
subject of Hawaiian affairs in general; of tho
labor question and the future of tho country
in particular. This was not always tho caso
but it is inevitable at present, when tho Ha
waiian Government is exciting in America
considerable shall we Bay, umuHcmcut?
Since a man cannot help having un opinion,
and the expression of it is not infrequently
wrung from him by tho ubiquitous "inter
viewers"; since, too often, tho opinion which
ho has quietly imparted to a friend is passed
from lip to lip, aud thus becomes distorted, is
added to, and finally gets into print in a ahapo
which passes his rccognUiou can he bo justly
held responsible for the sentiments as thoy are
expressed iu tho columns of a journal? Again,
what right has the reader to attribute to him,
or to any ono in particular, the instigation
of au articlo which doubtless meets with tho
approval of a vast number of people, any ono
of whom might havo furnished material for
an article of a similar character?
That certain unprincipled pcrsouu havo met
with disfavor here and, making an ignominious
retreat, have revenged themselves by scandal
izing tho kingdom is no precedent. Nor had
any ouo tho right tu accuso tho lato Attorney
General of being the author of uu articlo to
which ho boa not put his name; or of aiding
tho author of such, or any article, by famish,
iug data which uro to bo had by merely reach,
ing for it. An accusation of this character is
iu the worst postlblo taste, coming as it doe,
from tho journal of him who is Premier at the
present writing. Hitter experience seems to
profit him nothing. What to him are still
born libel suits T What to him are dismal
fiascos, reiterated reproofs, sacciasiyo suab.
blogs, and tho mistake of a lifo time? With
the policy uf a lonUni he llapa hit wiugs and
crows wheu the gamecock baa left the field;
this proceeding docs not in the least ooncero,
or discoucert tho game cock, but it doe con.
ccrn tho public; and the friends of fair play
who have noted the wiug-Woppiinj and the
crowing find tho exhibition, though by nq
wean unexpected, little short of disgusting.
It is tho lato Attorney-Genera! to whom tlio
frontier has tho presumption to attribute
tho Arijomiul article relating to tho possible
future of tho Islands, Tho lato Attornoy
(le.ner.il, knowing tho characteristics of tho
recently appointed Premier, took occasion to
inform his friends in Hawaii that ho was in no
degtca responsible for tho attlcto which ho
had been told had appeared in tho Anjonwil,
a tit! yet tho Prcniior, In his Dally, translates
tho articlo and publishes it under tho title of
"Tho thoughts ol W. N. Armstrong (Liinni

can bo expected of ono whoso highest ambi
tion was gratified when he obtained his prcs
cut unenviable mid precarious position.

to uoto tho causes that li.ti brought about tho
present crisis in tho "Khcdivo's Kgypt."
Mehomct All, tho founder of Ihu dynasty ol
Khedives, appointed Govoinor oll?gypt, mndo
himself vicoioy, and his family has been kept
In power over Bincc, and by increasing tho
amount ol tributo paid toTittkoy havo secured
several concessions until now llio country is al
most independent of tho Porte. Mchcinet All's
successors havo not possessed his firmness
or wisdom and their extravagance has led tho
country deeper and deeper iu debt, until it
seamed that thcro was no way left to turn.
Kngland and Franco hold the greater part of
tho country's bonds, and when it was found
that it would bo impossible for tho Khcdivo's
corrupt Government to liquidate its debt, those
two countries appointed commissioners to
manage tho financial atfuirs of the country,
which thoy havo dono with Guch ability that
confidcuco was iuspitod in tho cicdit of the
nation, taxes wcro made equal mid paid will
ingly and the-Government gradually emerged
from tho "slough of dcspond"iinto which it
As soon as tho country got its head above
water again the Pasha, or patrician paity, led
by Arabi Pasha, an unscrupulous and ambitious
schemer, became jealous of foreign influence
and particularly of tho foreign officcrB whoso
efforts alone saved tho nation ftom bankruptcy,
and ;t movement was organized tu dismiss
tbctn, Kgypt haB an army utid navy of her
own, raised with tho intention, eventually, of
securing total independence of Turkey, but
now it is proving a source of tioublo. Tlio
demonstration in favor of the programme of
tho Pasha party has thrown Hid country into
u state of anarchy and has giun Alexandria
over to the mob. Much blood haB been shed
and tho end ia not yet. Thero is a possibility
"that .English aud French forces will occupy
tho country jointly; the future at any rato does
not look, bright.
History repeats itself over and over again.
We know of ono kingdom that may iu tho not
distant futuro find itself iu tho sarao boat iu
which Kgypt is now drifting. Wo should look
aa we run.
Much interest has been manifested iu tho
Arrjonnrt leaders on the, Hawaiian situation,
aud moro prominence gii u thereto by an evi
dent desire of tho P. G. Irl. to father them onto
Mr. W. Armstrong for reasons beBt known
to tho Primate editor, but which tho majority
of our peoplo strongly suspect. To thoso who
havo read, or will read them carefully, thoy
can readily traco their authotahip to a foroigu
hand from any party who resided here,
especially for any length of time, for although
a fair knowledge of our situation on the wholo
is apparent, and some hard truths aro mado to
fit in cortain places; it is u matter of icgrct
that the points mado aud suggestions given
should be modified or injured by objoctionablo
personalities and expressions used, but which
aro quito peculiar to California. Tho articles
givo us all food for thought, but is cold and
unfcoling for tho Hawaiian, probably from tho
fact that our Hawaiian politicians oviuco no
forethought themselves. Tho suggestion that
various nationalities hero should drop their
petty jealousies and unite for tho country's
good and foster tho feeling of American pro
tection and influence is a golden truth that wo
hope will bo accopted. Annexation schemes
aro not what is wanted, noithor by this peoplo
nor by tho United States.

Tho pa.si.tgo by a majority of tho Legislature of
largo appropriation:! without ulho laying down in
structions that nhall diicct explicitly how theso
large sums of puplio moneys shall bo expended, is,
in our opinion, neither good government nor wiso
economy. Such work as this is unauthorized
wastefulness, an unconstitutional Bijiinndering of
From tho timo wheu tliu present new djnasly
wan clovalid to tho tbrotiu of Hawaii, and iu nc
cordanco with the authority conforrrcd on it by tlio
constitution of our land appointed Ministers, to
tho prc-Bcnt time, wo havo probably not had a
Cabinet that hoa sought to beguilo Urf into an in
inonso debt, as this Cabinot is striving lo do,
earnestly seeking to trap us liko rats in tlio jaws
of debt or to load us down with tho heavy burdens
of adversity and distrcsa. Wheu this now Cabinet
was appointed, great hopes wero ruined iu tho
mind of tho nation, that thu country was to bo
blobt and itn interests advanced, hut if actions of
tho Cabinet aro carefully obscned, docs it look
like patriotism for tho Ministers to go out of their
way to acquicsco iu tho numorons ill-considered
petitions lor money, without onca lifting up a
warning and restraining voico? To contract a
suitable debt for thopurposoof opening new roads,
making now landings, buoys and bridges, dtupen
itiS tho channel of tho harbor, and flllint; in low
lands works which in our opinion wiil open tho
Gateways of prosperity, ia all very well; but to co
in debt for things tho uso of which is not mado
apparent either by the ofllccrs of tho Government
or nny ono clso is outrageous.
Whilotho pic6ent head of tho Cabinet was iu
tho outs, nnd was engaged iu criticizing tho ex
penditures of tho previous Ministry, ho was very
earnest in opposition, but now that tho burdon of
leadership has fallen to him, it is seem that tho
Appropriation Bill for tho noxt two years is enor
mously large, nnd peoplo nro becoming disgusted
with his munnor of conducting tho Government.
Perhaps ho is only skilled iu talk nnd lacks skill
in ro.il work. If so tho leader of tho Government
will fail. 1 .
