Kiwuhcrc we give the New York
Herald's rcjwrt of nn interview with
Mr. J. IL Senile), Jr., treasurer of the
Hnvemeyer Sugnr Refining Compan)
anil one of the recent commissioners to
time folantl. to investigate into the
allegation) of fraud in the working of
trt treaty of reciprocity. Utir renders
can thtii see how farts arc crvcrtcd,
ami xslmt new olwtncles are arisine,
Mr. Settles admits "that there have
lioen no frauds in the administration of
the treaty," hut affirm that "the fraud
is in the treaty itself." This investi
ipitor (in the eastern refiners' interest),
in spite of the result of the commission's
itncxtigalions in ban rrancisco, Tort
land and these islands, and contrary to
the letter and spirit of their official re
ixlrt, makes the following assertion :
"Our (the United States) internment
meant one thing; the Hawaiian govern
ment meant another. I he treaty lets
in free of duty sugars of a low grade,
hut such sugars had not been made
there for twenty years. The language
deceived the eastern sugar trade, and I
lielioie that congress was milled.
The result was that Hawaiian sugars of
a lugli grade came in at once." I he
intent of this is certainly calculated to
mislead. Muscovado sugars is intended
to he here referred to, hut they ceased
twenty years prior to the negotiation of
the present treaty, and at the time of
its passage our present class of sugars
were tii.tuc, hut a table of their own
not yet published, but which their re-
lort refers to shows that a larger
piopnrlinn of high grade sugars were
uiailc before the treaty than has been
Mr. Scarlessays "commercially there
is very great prosperity," and in the en
joyment of this bonanza "some of the
plantations have mid dividends of
seventy-five kt cent in a single year;
men have liought shares in plantations
and maije fortunes in one or two years;
and planters who were bankrupt leforc
the treaty became rich the moment the
treaty was signed." Has the courteous
treatment which this gentleman received
while here turned his head ? Verily if
there have been such fortunes made
ami dividends declared it would ay
our eastern friends to plant here the
capital they are using in fighting us, as
it must certainly return them a larger
profit. Hut the statement about high
dividends is nonsense, and much
throughout the interview is quite as ri
diculous. -Points arc raided that have
been met and refuted time and again. A
new move here displayed, however,
appeals to race prejudice, against the
growth of the Portuguese and Chinese
population brought in to meet the de
mand for labor. Few, perhaps, arc sur
mised at the views expressed against the
latter class, for it was one that the late ad
ministration foresaw and therefore re
trained Irom any encouragement;
hence the establishment ol other immi
gration to supply the needs of the
islands with labor and population
Now we arc told that "more Portuguese
have arrived here during the last three
years than Americans in sisly years.
Does Mr. Searle wish to place his
countrymen on the same scale as the
Portuguese laboring class of the West
ern Islands in order to create a sympathy
for our neglect to bring in Americans for
plantation laborers? If they were so
placed there would le some other non
sensical objections raised, and the re
proach of holding "white slaves" would
be fastened on us to the end of time.
The charges against the mismanage
ment ol the government, its extrava
gancies and its tendencies, unfortu
nately are not so easily met. W'c have
git en faithful warnings there against
from time to time and denounced offi
cial follies in no uncertain tone, for the
political outlook has been a matter of
solicitude among our thinking men for
some tune past. If, in addition to
rushing the country into extravagant
debt, the administration lo-.es for us the
treaty tition which the present vigorous
lite ot the country now depends, it can
console itself with the reflection that it
has accomplished the ruin of Hawaiian
nationality more surely and completely
than all other causes combined.

The solicitude of
a parent lor her
child is displaced
in the Advertisers
leader of last Thursday. When Mr.
Ciibson brought forth his precious pro
test, Mr. Webb was chief clerk of the
.oreign office and dandled the immature
infant with the tenderness of a foster
mother and the skill of a professional
wet nurse. Now that Mr. Webb
vibrates between the editorial desk of
the Advertiser and the correspondence
lame ot the lorcign othce, he cannot
lear that rude hands should be laid
utwn lus good master's doll-lwby. So
he devotes a column of quotation and
comment to telling the little public he
writes for what the New Zealand
Herald thinks of the protest. So
clever a man of the world as Mr.
Webb ought surely to have detected
the latent sarcasm with which the New
Zealand jaicr dissects the moonshine
of Mr, Gibson's sorry jest.
In the same issue is published jwrt
jf a letter written to a New Zealand
iianor by a Honolulu cotrcsondcnt.
Was that corresjiondent the same er
son who wrote the leader for last
Thursday's Advertiser? Apprently yes.
More serious is the cowardly false
hood found in the concluding sentence
of the leader in emotion: "This is the
doctrine which the Hawaiian protest
preaches; and it will command respect
wherever it receives fair consideration
evei)wheie, in fait, esccpt among cer
tain coteries in these islands who de
spise the natives and long for the
extinction or complete sulordination of
the race." Where are " the coteries in
tlieseisland who despise the natives"
and long for their destruction ? Who
eonise those coteries? The chief
agents of the sure extinction ot the race
are intoxication and ut-tlic latter
tiring nearly .always a logical sequence
of the other, The Palace Party, with
Mr. Giboon at iu head and such men
as Mr Webb at its hccK, have given the
natives legal intoxication, and, there
fore, legal lust. The official census
shows a decrease of the native jxp
ulation in the eighteen years from i860
to 1878 of 15 7 1 J. What it has been
since no one know. Doubtless a pro
(xirtion equally dreadful to content

are rcsinmsihle for this decrease
those who have laliorcd to show them
the value of cleanly, decent, reputable,
honorable, pure lives; or those who
have made intoxication legal in years
wst and present? It comes with e

Hawaiian race with those who have

Mr. Searlcs' spiteful charges against
the treaty, from the eastern refiners'
standiKiint, illustrate thoroughly the
dog-in-the-manger policy of his princi
pais, who have not the business enter

they are unwilling that any one else
should have the benefit. Hence "the
great fraud" that has been perpetrated
on the United : States by Hawaii.
If the spirit of fair play is allowed
to assert itself the next congressional
discussion and fight over the treaty will
reveal the unjustness of the trumped-up
charges, and show the cloven hoof of
spiteful trade jealousy so plainly that
short work will be made of Mr. Hel-

The arrival of the last Australian
steamer at 9 i m. Sunday, and its tie
jwrture at 3 a. m. Monday, doubtless
was a hardship to many people, who
knew not of her arrival till they heard
she had gone. It appears to have been
the captain's fault and not the fault of
the agents, yet probably nothing will so
strengthen public favor of the new line
as such treatment from the old.
There is much to be said about re

ation 01 all concerned. I he monopoly

occasion next week to discuss this im
lortant question on its merits.
Says the New York Medical Record:
"Some of our western countrymen
have licen quick to appreciate the fact
that there is money in the bovine virus
business if conducted in a certain man
ner. The St. Ixniis Medical and Stir,
gical journal states that a firm was or
ganized in September, 1881, for the
juroe of supplying 'pure bovine
virus.' In March, 188.1, there iieinii
considerable smallKx in the city, the
New York Hoard ot Health awarded to
this company the contract for supply
ing the virus. During three weeks
over ten thousand vaccinations were
made, but without a single success 1
The contract was at once annulled, but
it is evident that if there had been an
active epidemic, the consequences
would have been most serious. It was
afterward learned that the vaccine farm
was under the direction of a dry goods
merchant. The lesson U obvious.
There is a temptation to make a purely
commercial venture of the preparation
of Ixniue virus. The increasing iojws
lam) ui mis mini ui virus in inc
united Mates makes it doubly imiort
ant that great care should be taken by
physicians and health boards to know
about the methods of its preparation."

" It 1 understood," said the reporter, "that

"That Ij true," said .Mr. Searlcs. I' The

meant one thing; the Hawaiian gocrnmcnt
meant another. The treaty Iet In free of duly

been made there for twent) )car. The lan

tielicve that congress was misled. The result
was that I lawaiian sugars of a high grade came
In at mice without duty."
" What Is the condition of affairs in the
" Commercially there is very great pros
perity. The treaty Is a honanta. There are
aliout ninety sugar planters there and the
amount of duty remitted to them last year was
alwut $3,000,000. That is, each planter gets
on the average almut $10,000 of 'bonus out
of the United Slates Treasury every year.
There is nothing like that in the commercial
history of the world. We arc giving these
men all the advantages of our protective
system. c tax our people annually aliout
540,000,000, partly in order to help the sugar
industry of touisanla and Ihe .Southern Stales.
Then we let the Hawaiian planters, who have
nn immense advantage in climate and soil,
come in and compete with these slates with
Chinese lalior. The consequence is that there
is wonderful prosperity there. The sugar lands
of the islands have gone up to enormous prices
and there has been a 'Imkiiii' there since 1S77.
Th taxes arc only three-quarters of one per
cent and jet the total revenue of the govern
ment amounts to $20 for each inhabitant.
Here our total revenue, laigc as our taxation
is, including tariff receipts, amounts only to
$5 for each inhabitant. Some of the planta
tions have paid dividends of 75 per cent in a
single jcar. Men have liouglit shares in
plantations and made fortunes in one or two
years. Planters who were bankrupt lwfore the

sicnt half it in buying her apples and told her

remitted by our government to the 60,000
people there amount, as I have said, to over
$3,600,000 every jcar, or $Gb for .each man,

"That is a difficult question to answer,"
said Mr. Searlcs. "There seem to have been
mixed motives in making it. Some say it was
done to help the missionaries; others say it
was done to develop our commerce, ami still
others say it was done to secure a dominant
American influence in the islands, so that no
other nation would get a foothold there. In
the debates in congress previous to the signing
of the treaty it appeared that there was some
fear that other nations might get in, notwith
standing the fact that we didn't wish to get
possession of the islands ourselves. Hut I no
tice that no European nation for forty ) ears has
shown the slightest intention of taking the 1st.

foreign interference was gotten up by the
planters in order to 'force' the treaty?"
"Has the treaty built up American influence
"No, I think not. I licticvc that, on the
contrary, il has greatly lessened American In
fluence. You can see for yourself from these
figures. In 1878 the numlier of American
residents in the Islands was about 1,30a

'Are not 20,000 Chinese rather nn over
whelming number for such a small country?"
"Certainly. They now amount to alxiul
onc'thiid of the entire population, and, so far
as ahlcdiodicil men arc concerned, they arc in
a majority, To illustrate! New York Stale
has over 4,000,000 of people, Supiiose we
imported about 2,000,000 Chinese and distrib
utes.! them over Ihe Stale; and, further, sup
ixjse that these 2,000,000 Chinese were able
liodicil men, outnumbering all the other able
bodied men in the Slate, you would then have
a case just parallel with that of the Hawaiian
Mandi to-day. When 75,000 Chinese gath.
cieil on the Pacific coast our people were
scared and we forccsl a new treaty with China
in order to keep them out, and )cl wc have
51,000,000 of people to counteract Chincw: in-

the planters who have got thlsUmanu treaty

practically a Chinese colony. The planters

they can. Whatever Ihcir professions are re
garding ihe incieax: of American Influence,
Hie fact standi out that they have filled the
country wi'h chinamen. The plant ci want
tiwucy. I do not blame them for that. Hut
when they look veey solemn and say they have
American interest, at heart I think It only fair
that the truth should cuiuc out. Why, one
third of the merchants are now Chinese. The

Chinese occupy entire valleys and get hold of
many of the must fertile spots. Twenty thou

ment in any community, I was told that the
Chinese got the wives of the natives away from
their husliands and that they corrupted the
younger girls. The natives are greatly Inferior
to them. The consequence Is n social condi
lion which is iierfectly abominable. The
planters want the Chinese laborers whether
bringing wives or not. The Chinese put up

"Why don't Americans go there?"
"Ilccatisc there are plenty of chances' for
business at home. Sugar planting, licsidcn,
requires large capital. Young Englishmen
are getting into the country very fast. The

Supply the greater part of the sugar machinery

English planters sneer at the idea of American
dominance. Many of ihcm have already made
small fortunes out of the treaty and they arc
very anxious to have it continued."
"What is the character of the Hawaiian
Gov eminent ?"
"Well, the government consists mainly of
King Kalakaua and .1 man named Gibson,
who is prime minister a sort of opera lwufTe
affair. The king has lost the confidence
ami respect of the majority of the best
people of the islands. Gibson's life is par
tially told in the Congressional Record of
1S5G. It seems that thirty jcars ago nc was
arrested in Java by the Dutch gosemment on
the charge of stirrir.g up treason and was con
demned to dcalh. He escaped anil on his re
turn to the United Stales our government de
manded of the Dutcha large sum for his arrest,
but the state deiartnicnt soon abandoned hi
claim. He next turned up in the Hawaiian
Islands as an agent, I am told, of llrigliam
Young, nnd he established the Mormon Church
there, but llrigliam Young finally dropped him.
Then lie became editor of n newspaper vrhich
always, took the ground that Kalakaua was the
meet enlightened potentate of modern times,
and so he is now chief adviser and right-hand
man of Kabkaua. I am fully satisfied that
the Hawaiian Government doc not favor the
increase of American 'influence in Hawaiian
affairs. Il is heartily in faior of the present
treaty so long as it brings such fine revenues to
lie spent in coronations and in junketing, but
if the government can make a better bargain
with any other nation it will close out our
treaty at once. The king and prime minister
of this insignificant nation are holding the
whips over the American ieoile. They are
saying to us; 'If you withdraw this lxwanza
wc shall make a trade somewhere else.' "

"What will be the end of all this?" in
quired the reporter.
"I cannot say," said Mr, Searlcs; "you
can judge for yourself. I have by no means
exhausted the subject. I think there wilt be
anarchy there before long. As the Chinese
get a better hold and the Portuguese increase
the Americans will step out. So long as the
planters can make money they will let things
drift along. If the Chinese-offer to buy out
the plantations, so much the better for the
planters. If the treaty is terminated by our
government the foreigners wilt then invite Ka

"Do you believe that we need the islands

" I am at a loss to see how we can possibly
utilize them. The present treaty gives us no
advantage over any other nation. If we had
them it would cost millions to fortify them.
Our policy is to keep on the continent. It
might lie of some advantage to hold them, so
as to keep the Chinese out, but" we have al
ready sK-nt $16,000,000 in liounlics there and
wc have only filled the islands with Chinese
the very object wc wished to prevent. The
treaty was an experiment. We have had
seven years of it nnd il works out Jus' the very
opjiosite of what wc expected. The fact Js
Ihe United Slates are the natural market for
the islands nnd we shall have some of their
trade, treaty or no treaty, lieforc this treaty
they took 61 per cent of their goods fiom us
and with the treaty ihey take only 70 ier cent,
l-'or every dollar of goods- they take from us
w e give them a dollar in bonus. As nu,Amcii
can citizen, apart from all other considerations
and after examining the subject on the spot, I
am convinced that the treaty is a failure so far
as American intcresti are concerned, and that
any one who will take the trouble to get at llie
facts will ngrec with me. I think wc can use
$3,500,000 a jear In some better way than by
paying II out to n lot of Hawaiians, English,
Chinese and Portuguese to be friendly to us.
On the whole the working of this treaty Is the
most amusing diplomatic farce of our times.
