Ixt. us lake n leaf from the experience of
Califofnii, Cheip lalior ;cctiictl at one time
essential to the ifl extension of intcrnil im
provement anil the better development of liotli
natural resources and desirable manufictures,
Capital looked across the Rocky Mountains,
but saw no unemployed workers. It turned
its pile across tlic Pacific, and saw there five
men dividini! a simile Inndful of rice, bo
Callfornhn capital called across the waters to
Chinese labor, and to its offer of work and
wages the Chinese nation imdc swift response.
Tor a time ihe presence of Chinese on the Pa
cific Coast was an unmistakable, though mixed,
good. They filled one niche as house servants,
another as laundry men, a third as market
gardeners, a fourth as fishermen, still another
as ltliortrs on public or semi-pubhe works.
Hut before long it was found that their number
increased out of all proKrtion to the demand
for Ihem in any of Ihe employments named,
while they began lo crowd themselves into
avenues of industry already occupied to the ex
tent of their carncity for yielding a profitable
living. The most cursory study of the prob
lem soon revealed the fact that a Chinese
could "live well," according lo his standard,
for lass thin half of what Americans, Ger
nnnsand Englishmen rcipiiicd to live "well,"
according to their standards. If it came to a
ipicstion of the survival of the fittest, and ca
pacity for cheap living was to be accepted as
the standard of fitness, there could be no possi
ble doubt that the Chinese would survive and
the Amcrico-Kuropcan would go to the wall.
Recognizing the div inc justice of the great law
of self-preservation, the thinking portion of the
people of California began the great crusade
airainst the further introduction of Chinese
cheap lalior. Many spoke, wrote and vvoikcd
in the ranks, from unselfish and enlightened
motives. Quite as many were anti-coolie re
formers from the most selfish and ignorant
motives. Hut, outside of the great corora
tions and a few hundred heavy capitalists, in
terested 111 industrial schemes of various kinds,
the people of California wltc as one man. l'or
a long time the lVicific Coast seemed warring
against the firm convictions of a united Uast.
The New England radicals who had led the
forlorn hope against Southern shvery could
not understand why industrious, free and fear
less Americans should clamor for the exclusion
of any fellow toilers. It was Hlaine of Maine
who sjioke most convinc'uigly in support of the
justice of California's policy. His voice broke
the ice, and enough national legislators w heeled
into line to press and pass the first anti
sought in our behalf. American, English and
Ciermm subjects arc more largely than any
others, interested in the trade of these Islands,
and it Is scarcely presumable, that even with
the consent of the Hawaiian Government itself,
these nations would stand quietly by to sec
the Intctests of their subjects overborne as
they most assuredly would lie by the results of
an enormous immigration from China. The
Chinese of Ihe place are so well organired, and
-umed, that should they at any lime become
stirred up to general and open hostility, the
government, with Its present resources, would
hold a doubtful chance in any collision. The
government is already vv eak enough, and cv cry
Chinaman thit enters hereafter in excess of the
numliers now present, will only tend to make
it more so. In trouble it js mainly lo assistance
from foreigners of other nationalities that the
government would have to look. The question
w c has c to face Is one of the utmost seriousness.
Unless the Government is fully alive to its im
purtancc, and acts with firmness and decision,
there will be little hope left for the autonomy
A I'rrtlitrnt f.rttcr from thr VlrrCnninl,
We hive not the data at hind, or the space
at our disp05.il fairly to discuss the question of
M)ssihIc contagion from the small-pox on board
the Maiiiai. We Ime, however, the jwsitivc
denial of Captain llradley and Vice-Consul
Uavles that any attempt to deceive the health
authorities was cither mule or contemplated.
We hope to give more light on this complicated
ipicstion next week. We print the following
letters with pleasure:
Honolulu,' II. I,, April 13, iSSj.
Editor Saturday I'rtii I beg to hind
vou herewith copy of a letter which I have ad
dressed to the J'acifit Comma rial Advertiser,
respecting remarks which they had made upon
the action of Captain llradley.
These remarks arc doubtless, inadvatrcnlly
penned, but as Captain llradley cannot defend
himself in prints I venture to ask you lo assist
mc in giving publicity to this correction.
Your obedient servant,

A letter from Ihe owner of the JAitiVtir, noticing him of
her intended arrival, and as Captain llradley had inter
views with Mr. Gibson, before poing to Hongkong, and
also wrote Mr. Gibson from Hongkong, it can hardly
lie claimed that no notice was given or that the JAi
i(ir brought her cargo of Coolies without the knowl

1 am confident vou will very gladly do what you can

If they rise to the level of this occasion. We
can forgive Mr. Preston something of his Incr-

Hush's peculiar expenditures t wc can overlook
a trifle of Ihe visionary folly of Mr. Gibson, if
they unite In such worthy concert of action that
the Interests of Ihcsc Islands shall become
neither the puppet of private speculation nor
the shuttlecock of a royal whim.
If ever the government needed the confidence
of the people, it Is to day. If ever the people
needed the protection of the government, it is
now. Nothing can cfficc the memory of
the blunders, the criminal negligence, the
downright w rongdoing of the existing ministry.
Yet prompt, vigorous and statcsminhkc action
in the Chinese complication ought lo go a long
way towards winning for those responsible a
qualified forgiveness of their many sins. When
"the lion shall lie down with the lamb, and
Messrs. Gibson, Preston, Kapena and Hush
shall again be numbered with the unofficiil
flock, they will have a right honestly to be
proud If truthfully the) may say, " Wc were

Hut it was really too bad not to send the

tunity of returning a courtesy in kind. It was
polite of the Crar to send King David his
cousinly duty. It would have been ungracious
If King David had not promptly responded
Yet since the Minister of Foreign Affairschose
not lo indite one of those trifles of diplomatic
elegance of which he is an acknowledged mas
ter, it seemed needlessly unkind to keep the
navy anchored. The Emperor of all ihe Rus
sias sent hit congratulations by a Post-Captain.
Might not wc have sent our Special Envoy in
the royal flag ship ? The navy would certainly
have enjoyed the outing. The army might
have gone too, as the necessary file of marines.

The evils urulcr which California suffered,
ami is In a measure still suffering, threaten
Hawaii to tlay. We hive enough difficulty
profitably to assimilate the Chinese who arc
here already. What are wc to do with the
hundreds at our gates, and the thousands on
the way, is not to lie determined in an hour.
Suffer their presence vv e may be compelled to
do; assimilate them we can not. Labor is
needed, )csj but not Chinese labor. Why not?
Ilecause the average Chinaman is and must al
vvajs constitute an alien clement. If ou can
Chtistianire him, even adapt the conditions of
his peculiar civilization to jours, the problem
is, in his case, solved. He then becomes a
valuable worker, a valuable member of society
and valuable citizen. To make him thus ou
must give him home, wife, property and such
an appetite for the artificial wants of jour
civilization that he will spend a fair proportion
of his earning among the community where he-
has acnuitcd it. You may make this anomal
ous Chinaman out of one in every score. The
odd nineteen will remain heathen, vicious and
lawless. Wc say "lawless" advisedly. They
do not openly defy authority. Hut they evade
it. The Chinese arc smugglers by instinct,
and purvejors of contraband goods by profes
sion. They are selling illicit liquor, and hawk
ing unlawful opium in every district in the
kingdom. They are plantation laborers only
so long as llusy are legally bound, Then they
go into other business. They are vegetable
peddlers, shopkeepers, express dtiv crs, carpen
ters, and so on to the end of a long chapter.
All this is to their cicdit, doubtless. They are
shrewd, Indusltious, persevcripg, skillful. Hut
t is pieciscly these qualities that nukes our
tlangcr what it Is. They call do all that and
live within a daily income wliich, to us, would
represent abject povcily. That is the long,
long story in a sentence. In a woid, It means
The love of life and the adoption of means
for self-protection ate among the most power
ful of human Instincts. Upon such knowledge
is piimaid) based the light to set aside, when
life U endangered, all respect for the more
usual foims of law, and to make self-defence
justifiable, irrespective of, consequences to

oppose force to force, regardless of other con

day the Hawaiian nation Is in a situation to
call foilh to the uttermost its Instinct of self
pieservation, and if it fails to act In accoi Jance
with that instinct, the surrender of its v. cry life
may be a consequence. Wc have ample law

It is rumored that Honolulu is to have another
banking establishment. It is also rumored that
the house of Ilishop & Co may be merged in
the new business. Whether the coming con
ccrn shall bcnclit or injure the community,
largely will depend upon who is at its head.
Hitherto, the even-handed justice of the gen
tleman who controlled it has justified the bank
ing monopoly of Honolulu. It seems unlikely
that any new financial dictator, coming into
power from Maiden Lane or Wall Street or
the corner of Sansome and 1'ine, could dispense
financial justice with the same inflexible even
handedness. The individual or corporation
having interests all over the islands, ow ning
plantations and mills, ships and wharv es, pro
duce and warehouses, must lie something more
than merely shrewd; something more than
simply honest j something better than both,
vv isely to harmonize conflicting interests and an
argumentative conscience. A new bank, might
lie a boon lo the community. There seems
ample room for two. Hut no new bank, cer
tainly no banker new to this community, ought
to be allowed to establish a monopoly of the
banking business in this city. We think that
gentlemen who have made large fortunes here
ow c the community at least this much ; that
they neither take all their money out of the
country, nor neglect to provide for the com
mercial or industrial vacancies their departures
may cause. At a late date we have been an
swered that the rumor of the merging of Hishop
& Co. with any other banking business is untrue.
Wc print the following articles in no carping
spirit. Hut each is representative ol what the
outside world is thinking concerning Hawaiian
affairs. I'ranklj-, wc do not expect to sec the
government reform. Wc do not think it holds
within itself the seeds of reform. Yet if it
will give the nation assurance of help in the
Chinese crisis; if it will make a clear financial
showing, so that citizens may know first where
has gone all the money so far spent ; if it will
tell exactly how muchmonej has been borrowed,
and how it has been or is to be spent j if it will
do all these things and convince the com
munity that it means to go on in that line, it
may rcgiin some of the popular support which
it now so conspicuously lacks.
l'olitics in the Hawaiian Islands arc becom
ing heated; personalities and recriminations
arc more than ever indulged in. the unison
ministry seems to become more and more un
popular every month, the mercantile and plan
ling interests apparently have no confidence in
the Cabinet, and there were some things done
lately that not only the religious but the de
cently moral portion of the community consi
der outrages. There is no danger, however,
of anv thing of the kind ever being repeated, as
the Court, Judge Hickerton presiding, has en
forced the law and fined the propictor of a
printing office antl his foreman for printing a
certain programme, even though it w as sup
posed to have the countenance of high officials.
It is only right to say that the proprietor
sokcn of docs not read Hawaiian, and was
ignorant of the meaning of the document. The
rebuke to the authors and contrivers of this
portion of the coronation festivities is well de
served and will be keenly felt. The Cabinet,
on his refusal to resitrn. lias summarily dismiss
ed Mr. Godfrey Drown from his office of
Kcgister ol 1'uljlic Accounts, though in tne let
ter asking for his resignation his valued scr
v ices are highly appreciated and held cv er tie
servinc of remembrance; it looks, it is said, as
if the .Ministry for some purpose wanted a less
intelligent or more pliable man in his place.
It is supposed that some cookint! of accounts is
to be done to cover up some of the expendi
tures on the coronation business in excess of
appropriations. The Government has been
forcctl by public opinion to deal more rational
ly ol late with the leprosy trouble than it has
hitherto done. San Francisco Merchant,

On the 16th ultimo, Rev, Screno Bishop of
this city wrote a letter on the subject of leprosy
which was printed in the San Francisco Bulle
tin. Our San I'rancisco letter makes a some
what sweeping criticism upon it, in which we do
not concur. The Bulletin of this city endorses
the letter. Constructively, the Gazette docs
also, though holding that some of its estimates
arc exaggerated. The Advertiser prints the
letter in full, with extended comment, holding
that "The Rev. Mr. Ilishop makes an utterly
uncalled for and improper statement in regard
to the King s disinclination lo have the severe
measures of segregation carried out in regard
to lepers in His Majesty's dominions. There
are no facts to substantiate such a statement.
On the contrary His Majesty fully sustains the
present action of the Uoatd of Health in re
moving lepcts from their homes and in placing
them in hospitals or as)luim." We think it is
the judgment of the community that the King
has interfered to stay the action of the author!,
ties in many instances. We trust the AJier
titer Is right in thinking His Majesty has ex
perienced a change of heart.

A singular epidemic; prevails In the hilly le

The volume of "Foreign Relation," for
1SS2, iust published, contains an interesting
letter to Secretary Frclinghu)sen from Minister
Comlcy of the Hawaiian Islands. He discus
ses the future of the Sandwich Islands, a ques
tion which ne considered 01 great Importance
to the United States in view of the rapid de
cadence of the native population. Mr. Corn-
ley snows tnat out 01 a population 01 45,000
natives 01 anonginai descent, mere are over
too condemned leners at the lepers' settlement
on Molokal, and it Is estimated that there are
between 3,000 and (,000 concealed lepers on
the islands. 1 ne ablest pli) sicians mere He
clare that four-fifths of the natives are infected.
The Minister savs that Ihe robust race of the
ancient Kanaka has shriveled and dwindled to
this melancholy handful, some of whom arc
still of noble ph)sinue, and all of whom ate of
amiable character, but top many of whom arc
crippled alike In person, in morals and in for
tune, in mind, body and estate. There is no
mercantile or manufacturing business in the
kingdom that Is owned and managed by a na
tive of the full blood. It appears from Mr.
Comlcy s letter that not only all the commoners
of the race are disappearing at the rate of 1 Jf
per cent a sear, but the chiefs are faring still
worse. The Constitution renuiics that the
Sovereign shall lie of native or high chief
blood. Of all the to) al family and collateral
branches there is but one frail little gill, half
white, the daughter ol I'rmccss Ltkclike, to
represent the second generation. Minister
Comlcy savs the Queen Dowager Emma is
childless, Queen Kapiotani has no children,
I'rincess Luka (Ruth), sister of the late Kamc
hamcha, has no heir of her body to her name
or large estate, and Mrs. l'auahi Ilishop,
daughter of the old Chief l'aki, has never had
a child ami has once refused a nomination to
the succession unless Ihe genealogical tables ol
the kingdom shall be reformed and enlarued.
There is no uther family left eligible to the
throne, and the naliv es do not recognize the
Kalakaua family to be of high chief blood.
This distinction is made fully apparent when
any of the ptesent roval family are brought in
public contact with Queen Kmma or I'rincess
Luka. Minister Comlev savs that the dues-
tion of the replenishment of the vital forces of
Hawaii demands tne consideration ol the
United States, and it will requite watchfulness
to prevent the islands from drifting Into Asiatic
jiosscsslon, or becoming a lltiliili Protectorate

The New York Sun savss Now It it British
Columbia that is exercised about the Chinese.
More than 17.000 Chinamen went there as
settlers last year, while it amcars no elToit is
being made to bilng to the 1'rov nice a fair
siiate ol the l.utopean overflow. William
Shakespeare, representing that l'rovince in
Ottawa, recently introduced a bill lo restrict
Chinese immigration there, ami a colleague
said that one settler from the older 1'iPvinccs
Is worth one thousand Chinamen, but Shake
speaie was induced to withdraw the bill. So
intense is the feeling In Uriiish Columbia
against the Mongolians that it finds vent even
in the press reports, one of which recently dc
dared the Chinese, where they arc found in
large numbers, intimidate the whites and
threaten them with violence.
