Many very learned dissertations have
been written on the origin and antiquity
of libraries, and on the mc and ower
of book, for advancing civilization.
In fart, all the good ideas expressed on
the subject can be condensed bysaying
that the number of libraries in a coun
try is nowadays a sure criterion of its
degree of civilization, and the greater
it loss disposition of the colc to read
looks is .the fitrrt dt louche of their
Morality, and of their capacity for great
And good things. To use the words of
.hegrent apostle and founder of libraries,
, Benjamin Franklin, on this subject, the
early diffusion of books and of public
libraries in America "improved the
"general conversation of the Amcri

"tlcmcn in other countries, and proba

"the stand generally made throughout
"the colonics in defense of their privi
"leges." In other words, America owes
its present greatness to the high standard
of instruction of its people and to their
early lastc for books. This will seem a
decisive argument for a country like
Hawaii, where Americans lorm a ma
jority of the population ; and yet noth
ing seems ever to have been written to
express more vividly the nature and
power of a book, its intimate mission
and its workings on the human brain,
than the above introductory quotation
from a well known French writer. A
book is not only, as he says, a letter
written for and sent to all the unknown
friends we may have in the world, caus
ing a friendly intercourse between all
the hearts who beat in unison with
ours, between all the minds who think
as we do, it not only teaches us the
precious 'things which have been in
vented, discovered, thought or pro
posed in every branch of human knowl
edge. But even when a book does not
appear to contain any information of
immediate use, or even when the ideas
it. contains are directily opposed to those
we cherish, this book may prove
a friend to us by .inciting our minds to
reflection, study and discussion, there
by bringing us to correct ourselves if it
be proved that wc are wrong, or stir
rim; up new ideas and causing us to pro
duce work of our own for refuting the
errors wc discover in our unknown
friend's production, l'liny the Younger
said that there was no bad book in which
some good thing could not be found.
Consequently a collection of books,
even of indifferent books, may be fruit
ful of fathomless good results, and he
who gives humanity a good book is
nearly as worthy as that man whom a
great king declared the wisest of his
people for having caused two blades of
grass to grow where only one was found
before. Henceforth, those who assist
in giving the public large collections of
books and creating libraries accessible
to all classes, do more for the cause of
civilization and of education, and for
the good of future generations, thancan
be expressed by words ; and it is a
credit to this population to see how
Unanimously this truth is endorsed, as
evidenced, by the liberal and untiring
support and patronage hcrctolorc given
to the Honolulu Library and Reading
Room Associatidn,Jind to all matters
connected with it. Alsojt is not doubt
ful now that ere many"v,'ears have
elapsed, the Institution for tliMumcfit
of which this Fair has been originated,
and this paper published and bought
by the public, will be a standing honor
to the country, a monument of the en
lightened vicwsandlibcrality of this com
munity at large, and more especially of
the ladies who have so zealously sup
ported it, and to whose exertions are
mainly due the actual prosperity of our

The idea of a Public Library in
Honolulu has undoubtedly often oc
curred to many minds. But the germ
of the present institution was the idea
in the mind of Mr. William Johnson,
who sought to provide a place of resort
that would be fiee from the baneful in
fluences of the liquor saloons. In the
beginning of the month of February,
1870, he circulated a paper, approving
the establishment of a Temperance
Rending Room. When 78 signatures
had been secured, a meeting of those
interested in this project was held
liiftii 1st. Some remarks at that meet
,JK ty M""- !' '" Sheldon, in regard to
Aa similar undertaking in San Francisco,
Iw'Hiuduccd those assembled to vote for the
organization of a society to be called
"The Honolulu Workingmen's Library
Association." A Hall and Library
Committee was chosen to solicit dona
tions of books and secure a room.
Another Committee was appointed to
draft a Constitution and By-Laws.
When this Committee retried, March
8th, the name finally adopted was "The
Honolulu Library nnd Reading Room
Association." The objects stated in the
Constitution adopted were large enough
to enlist the sympathies of every intelli
gent and generous minded person in the
community-; 29s persons had put their
names on the roll as supporters of the
organization. Not all, however, were
willing to jwy the money asked for ini
tiation fee and annual membership
dues. Some discussion arose also about
the propriety of admitting ladies to
membership, flood sense, as well as
chivalrous appreciation of the worth of
woman s coojieration prevailed, anu
the Library owes its prosperity, if not
its existence, largely to the interest
which the ladies of Honolulu have crer
manifested in the objects of this asso
ciation. The first two meetings were
held in the rooms that were then rented
and have ever since been occupied by
the Library Association, Fort Street,
over C 12. Williams' furniture store.
The first officers were chosen for only
sW months, and were as follows : Presi

ample space for new literary treasures.
The King has always been a warm
friend of the Library, ana was made an
Honorary Member when the Associa
tion was first organized. Steps were
early taken to secure a charter, and the
committee appointed for this purpose
April titb, 1879, reported July 15th
that it had been granted and duly
recorded. May 1st, 1880, a committee
consisting of A. J, Outright, A. S. Hart
well, R. F. Ilickerton, was apjiointcd to
ask of the Legislature, then in session,
some material help from the Govern
ment, and June ad, 1881,'thcy reported
that they had secured a grant of
the lot corner of Hotel and Alakca
Streets, on condition that within a
specified time a substantial brick or
stone building, suitable for the uses of
the Association, would be erected
It has been the object of the Associa
tion to furnish instructive and inter
esting literary and musical entertain
ments, either in their own ball, or in
some larger room. Mention only may
be made of Dr. Rodgers' lecture on
Libraries; Capt. Dutton en Rivers;
Rev. George Wallace, Rev. J. A. Cru
zan on Success in Life; Mr. IIofTiiung
on Thomas Hood; Prof. Bandman on
The Amateur Dramatic Association,
the Musical Society and the Symphony
Club have given entertainments in the
Music Hall, the proceeds going to in
reasc the invested funds. The ladies
connected with the Association held a
fair, May, 1880 which netted $2,.ioo. A
special committee (S. 1!. Dole, A. J.
Cartwright, C. M. Hyde, R M. Damon,
C. T. Rodgers) was appointed January
7, 1882, to arrange for a Loan Exhibi
tion, which was held through the kind
ness of Mr. James Campbell, in one of
the new stores in his Beaver Block, and
added to the building fund $1,570.88.
It had been voted Oct. 1, 1882, that a
committee consisting of A. J. Cart
wright, C. 'P. Rodgers, T. G. Thrum,
and A. Marques, should procure plans
and specifications for a Library Build
ing. Changes in the boundaries of the
streets have caused a modification of
the original plan, and delay in prose
cuting the work. But the building is
now advancing rapidly to its comple
tion, and promises to be an ornament
to the appearance of the city, and a
credit to the generous and thoughtful
public spirit of its citizens. When
safely housed in its fire-proof building,
the Association hopes to make itself
not only increasingly useful but abso
lutely indispcnsible. Provision is made
for a display of paintings and statuary,
as well as for a cabinet of antiquarian
curiosities and scientific specimens.
Mr. A. Marques has presented to the
Association a choice collection of mu
sical publications, and in this depart
ment it is hoped that substantial aid
will be furnished to all interested in the
study of music. The card catalogue
system was early adopted, though all
the books were not catalogued until
Sept. 30, 1880. This system admits of
thorough classification as well as of in
definite expansion. As soon as the
state of the funds will permit, a printed
catalogue will be furnished to members
of the Association. The Janitor or the
Librarian will furnish all possible as
sistance in the selection of books at
any time. Residents on other islands
can order books sent by mail at any
time, and so enjoy the advantages of
the Library, as well as those-can who
live in Honolulu. Strangers from
abroad, or from other islands, are wel
come to the privileges of the reading
room at any time on entering their
names in the Visitors' Book. Special
cards of invitation are sent to the na
tional and mercantile vessels visiting
the port. Children in the public
schools are allowed the use of the reading-room,
on presenting cards that will
be furnished by their teachers to all
whom they may wish to have such a
privilege. The Library no iv possesses
nearly 3,000 volumes, including very
valuable collection of books of refer

Four years ago, this present month,
the Library and Reading Room Asso
ciation made its first general appeal to
the public in the form of a fair. That
enterprise, originated by a few enthusi
astic friends of the institution, with the
idea of raising a few hundred dollars
wherewith to pay ofia debt then stand
ing, nnd perhaps have something over
for the purchase of books, prew as it
proceeded into unexpected dimensions
and resulted in realizing for the treasury
nearly twenty-four hundred dollars. Of
this sum about four hundred dollars
were consumed in clearing off the in
debtedness, and of the remainder, one
thousand dollars was put aside as a
nucleus for a building fund, the balance
being turned into the general treasury
of the association.
From the proceeds of the Loan Ex
hibition, held two years ago, another
thousand dollars was added to the
building fund, and with this amount on
hand the new building, now well on
towards completion, was commenced,
the contract price of which is $n,
108.00; deducting from this the amount
of the building fund already alluded to,
$2,0200, left the sum of $9,088.00 to
lw raised by subscription, or otherwise.
As some additional money would be
required for fitting up and furnishing, it
was decided to start a subscription list
for the round sum of $10,000.00, all
subscriptions being conditional upon
the whole amount being raised. Had
the times leen as prosperous and the
hutineis outlook as encouraging as a
year ago, the entire sunt would have no
doubt been promptly tnibscribed with
out a difficulty. . As it is, over three
fourths of the required amount has been
subscribed, and In view of the (act that
these subscriptions are all dependent
upon the whole $ 1 0,000,00 being raised,
mid that a portion of them are depend
ent on its being raised within a certain
time, and aUo owing to the necessity
of completing and modernizing the Li
brary by a larue addition of new books.
it has been thought best to anneal to
the liberality of the public in support
of a fcccona strand fair and festival,
which, fa conspiration of the worth)
ncss of the object, and the well-known
liberality of our people in such matters,
it is hoped and believed will be a grand
success. Hence this charming array
of beauty and grace of crson and taste
of adornment, hence this bewildering
display of articles of use, luxury and
beauty, hence this bountiful and tempt
ing provision of creature coin foils, both
solid and fluid, and hence this generally
gay and festive aspect of things which
we see about us on every side. May
the results be worthy of the pains which
have been taken, the labor which has
been expended and the thought-which
has been bestowed upon the preparation
of this festival. Ciias. T. Rodokrs.
ThrCftomi VrKntltlitg In lllfftrtnl
"When men," write the philosophical com.
" filute each other In an amicable manner,
ft signifies little whether they move a partic
ular pait of the txxly or practice a particular
ceremony. In these action there must exist
different customs. Every nation imagines II
employs the most reasonable ones : but all
are equally simple, and none are to be treated
as ridiculous." This Infinite numlr of cere
monies may lc reduced to two kinds : to rev
crnces or salutations, and to the touch of some
part of Ihe human IkxIv. To bend and pros.
Irate one's self to express sentiments of re
spect, appears to be a natural motion for
terrified persons throw themselves on the
earth when they adore invUablc beings; and
the affectionate touch of the person they sa
lute is nn expression of tenderness. As na
tions decline from their ancient simplicity,
much farce and grimace are Introduced, Su
perstition: the manners of a people, and their
situation, inlluencc the modes of salutation, as
may be obsercd from' the Instances we col
lect. Modes of salutation have sometimes very
different characteristics, and it is no uninter
esting speculation to examine their shades.
Many display a refinement of delicacy, while
others arc remarkable for Ihcir simplicity or
for their sensibility. In general, however,
they are frequently the same in the Infancy of
nations and in the mote polished societies.
Respect, humility, fearand cstccmare expressed
in a somewhat similar manner, for these are
natural consequences of the organization of the
body. These demonstrations become in time
only empty civilities, which signify nothing.
Wc shall notice what they were originally,
without reflecting on what they arc. Primitive
nations have no peculiar modes of salutation!
they known no reverences or other compliments
or they despise and disdian them. The Green
landers laugh when they sec a Kuropcn un
cover his head, and bend his lmdy before him
whom he calls his superior. The islanders
of the Philippines take the hand or foot of
him they salute, and with it they gently tub
their face. The Laplanders apply their nose,
strongly against that of the person they salute.
Dapicr says that at New Guinea they are satis
fied to put on their heads the leaves of trees,
which hac ever passed for symbols of friend
ship and peace. This is at least a, picturesque
Other salutations are very incommodious and
painful. It requires great practice to enable
a man to be polite in an Island situated in the
Malacca Straits. Iloulman tell us they saluted
him in this grotesque manner: "They
raised his left foot, which they passed gently
over the right leg, and from thence over
his face." The inhabitants of the Philippines
use a most complex attitude; they bend their
body very low, place their hands on their
checks and rise at the same time one foot in
the air with their knee bent. An Ethiopina
takes the robe of another and ties it about his
own waist, so that he leaves his friend half
naked. This custom of undressing on these
occasions takes others forms; sometimes men
place themselves naked before person whom
they salute; it is to show their humility, that
they arc umvorthy of appearing in his presence.
This wis practiced before Sir Joseph Hanks
when he recived the visit of two female Ota
heitans. Their innocent simplicity, no doubt,
did not appear immodest in the eyes of the
virtuoso. Sometimes they only undress partial
slly. The Japanese only take off a slipper; the
people of Arraca'n their sandals in the street,
their stockings in the house.
In the progress of time it appeared servile to
uncover one's self. The grandees of Spain
claim the right of appearing covered lfore
the king to show that they are not so much
subjected to him as the rest of Ihe nation. Mr.
llobhnuse observes that uncovering the head,
with the Turks, is a mark ofindeent familiarly;
in their mosques the Franks must keep their
hats on. The Jewish custom of wearing their
hats in their synagogues is, doubtless, ihe same
Oriental custom. In a word, there is not a
nation, observes the humorous Montaigue, even
to the people who, when they salute, turn their
backs on their friends, but that can be justified
in their custom. The negroes are lovers or
ludicrous actions, and hence all their cere
monies seem farcical. The greater part pull
the finger till they crack. Snelgravc gives an
old representation of the embassy which the
King of Dahomey sent to him. The cere
monies of salutations consisted in the most
ridiculous contortions. When two negro
monarch visitTihey embrace, snapping three
limes the middle finger, llatbarous nations
frequently imprint on their salutations the
dispositions of their character. When the
inhabitants of Carmena (says Athenacus) would
show a eculiar mark of esteem, they opened
a vicn, and presented for the leverage of their
friend the flow ing blood, the Franks tore Ihe
liair from, their heads, and presented It to the
person they' saluted. The slave cut hit hair
and offered it to his master.
The Chinese are singularly aflecteil in their
personal civilities. They even calculate the
number of their reverences. These are the
most remarkable postures; The men move their
hands in an affectionate manner while they are
joined together on the breast, and bow their head
a little. If they respect a person, they raise
their hands joined, and then lower them to
the earth in bending the body. If two persons
meet after a long-time separation, they both
fall on their knees and bow the face to Ihe
earth, and this ceremony they repeat two or
thres times. Their expression mean as little as
their ceremonies. If a Chinese Is asked how be
finds himself in health, he answers, "Very well,
thanks to your abundant felicity," If they
would tell a man that be lk well, they say,
"Prosperity is printed on your tree!" or, "jour
air announces your happiness." If you render
them any service, they sayi "My thanks shall
be. immortal." Ifyou praise them, they answeri
"How shall I dare to presuade myself of what
you 14 y of me?" If you dine with them, they
(ell you at wiling; "We be not treated you

The marks of honor are frequently arbi

prince will only lie addrrssed by persons who
are seated, and is considered as a favor to be
permitted to stand In their presence. This
custom prevails in despotic countries. A

There are Christians who seem greatly to
mourn over what they call thesuperstitousidol
atory of India. No doubt they believe that
Idol-worship is a common fact in my country,
nnd, to the superficial observer, our people
do pay hoi.iagc to various objects and images
The truth is, however, we do not believe for
a moment that these idols have any divine
wwer in themselves. Wc know very well
that the thing before us Is n stone or a clay
Image, prepared by human hands, lmight at
the market after the manner of any other pur
chase, and perhaps chosen out of many, to suit
individual taste but It always cither possesses
or is made to represent some attribute which
helps the imagination in coming neater 16 the
Supreme Invisible. This is the generally re
ceiscd opinion among the orthodox Hindoos.
I'undit l'romada Das Mitra, a learned Hin
doo, thus replies to an attack upon our rcll
gous worship i
" If by idolatry is meant a system of worship
which confines one's idea of the Divinity to a
mere image of clay or stone, which prevents
our hearts from being elevated with lofty notijns
of the attributes of God if this is what is
meant by idolatry, we abhor idolatry, and
deplore the ignorance and uncharitablcncss of
those who charge us with this groveling
The most intelligent and philosophical,
while holding that the highest form of wor
ship is Manasa-fuja and Nlrakara-fuja (heart
worship and formless worship), justify the
common method on the ground of nonsidcr
ation to weaker-minded pcrsons.VVorslnp
btfort images, and not to images, Is what is
practised by Hindoos. It is a notable fact
that the worship of all Hindoo idols begins
with the sentance &twievaiitiamTbcie is One
only, and no second.)
So far from worshiping material images, the
Hindoos are too spiritual to believe even in
the existence of matter. The only real exit
tenet, according to a dogma of our philosophy,
is the one universal spirit or essence, formless,
colorless, and imponderable, of which the
whole creation is what known may be called
the "objective state." The assertion by an
individual that an object exists, is taken lo be
tantamount to the expression of his ignorance
about it. Hence the Hindoo aphorism, "Ig
norance is the begetter of all things." When
you describe an object you only state the limit-,
ations of your own knowledge. It must be
evident to every sane pcrsou that, granting the
existence of the religious spirit In man, the ab
scene of anysupernatural or scientific revelation,
the system of the Hindoos was the most sens!
ble form that the instinct of worship could
lake. There is nothing absurd or ridiculous
in the much lamented "bowing down to wood
and stone," which the heathen is supposed to
do in his "blindness." There in not a single
idol in the Hindoo pantheon but has a whole
volume of philosophy behind it, the exposition
of which is made with at least as much logic
and lucidity as many a venerable book on
"Christian Evidences." It may be noted,
that even now, after the Gospel of the Testa
ment lias been offered to to the Hindoo by
zealous missionaries for over two hundred
year, he does not seem to be convinced of the
errorof his ways. I lis temperance, filial devo
tion, almost immaculate pernnal cleanliness
and social and moral purity compare favorably
with the habits of other people.
One of our most popular Images is that of
the goddess Durga, otherwise called Shakti
(Sanskrit for force). This goddess represents
the female element in the evolution of Ihe uni
verse, Sh: is not the creator herself, but, in
the words of our peculiar philosophical dogma,
the ovum or egg which became the universe,
all influence of the Creator (Pitrit, male),
being supposed, to have ceased after the initial
contact. The whole formula of worship of
this power is, in fact, but a eulogistic description
of nature in her multiform aspects, with ad
dresses of praise and prayer to the permeating
spirit, accompanied by suitable ceremonies.
The days set apart for Ihe worship of idols
are always occasions of public festivity and
Another form of idol worship among the
Hindoos is the celebration of the lives and
wotks of deified heroes and saints, who are be
lieved to have performed miracles and noble
achievements in the service of their fellow men.
The scenes of the lives and works of (hese
heroes are hallowed shrines. Pilgrims con
gregate here year after year, tq do homage to
the departed spirits, and sanctify themselves by
acts of charily. The famous Juggernaut, which
has figured so conspicuously in missionary liter
ature on account of many cases of fanatical
self-immolatisn before his huge war-chariot,
represents one of these heroes.
I do not mean to say that these is not a single
man, woman, or child in India who Mievcs
In the divine personality of any one of our
Idols.' There are poor, ignorant, superstitious
Hindoos who believe in the personality of a
stone or clay image, but I think there are fully
as many professing Christians who'believc that
the bread and wine are the real body and blood
Nor must I ia$s over the fact, that notwith
standing the mild disposition of the' Hindoos
and their kindness to all living cieatiues(c-ten-ling
even to noxious and poisonous animals,)
some of ihe most cruel practices have been rwr
milted in connection with religious festivals ;
as, for example, self-immolation before the car
of Juggernaut. This has been petfonned as an
act of self-sacrifice, to secure to the devotee a
blissful eternity, Such act, have been tolerated
by a people who do not eat fish or meat, because,
of the cruelly of killing fellow creatures. '
I have dwelt upon this subject somewhat at
lengtn, put as me worshipers 01 idols occupy a
scry low place in the estimation of CbristUr.i,
I thought it right to say this much,
Alter all (bat has beert said absut idolatry,

Whatever motives may be attributed tq per
sons of influence In Australia who are making
efforts to secure the annexation of New Guinea
by Great Ilritaln, there can be no doubt that
the desire of the people of the colonies is
broadly and simply that New Guinea should
1 included in ihe future Australian Empire.
If clvilircd settlement is good for Australia,
they conclude Ihat it would be good for New
Guinea also, and they Cannot understand what
possible good could arise fr6m preserving
land of barbarism and savagery clo-e to ihcir
own doors. Moreoer, they know that the
primitive condition of New Guinea cannot be
preserved, even If it were desirable that ft
should be perpetuated. The passion for con
quest Is hot confined to military mtcntates.
The most enduring conquests, and the best
for the world, are thme which are made by
Ihe heroes of discovery and the captains of in
dustry. The spirit of adventure is too strong,
restless, and daring to be chokcl olT from a
lini) reputed to offer rich fields for settlement
and industrial enterprise.
Perhaps the best reason for the annexation
and colonisation of New Guinea Is lo be found
In the future welfare of the native population.
As it Is, they cannot escape from spoliation
and those collisions which lead lo a kind of
normil state of aggression and reprisal bctw ecu
races. You cannot roll back from New Guinea
all the world's knowledge of the land and its
natural riches, ami seal it up, as il were, In a
slate of primitive night. Even if It were left
lo the guardianship of llaron Maclay and the
missionaries, the stream of events would soon
provide rival L'uardinns,
As A sample of the visitations with which
New Guinea will be alllictcd if the country Is
now left lo itself, I will give the story of a vis
itor, as told by himself in n Sydney newspaper
some lime ago. A Mr. John Cameron made
it his business to visit New Guinea last year
with the avowed object of buying land. Some
reports about his transactions with the natives
which got abroad after his return to Sydney
Induced Mr. Cameron to defend his conduct in
the Sydney Morning Herald. He explains
that he examined a large tract of country, nnd
had repeated intercourse with the natives ;
that he made known, by means of interpreters
the object of his visit, nnd Ihe nature of a deed
of conveyance which he had brought with him
for the native owners of the land to sign.
Nothing could be more just and straightfor
w ard, he contends, than this mode of procedure.
Eventually he bought 12,000 acres of picked
land, for which he paid ,140 in cash, and gave
presents to the value of 50. Reckoning his
presents at the value at which he puts upon
them, Mr. Cameron paid less than .id, per
acre for the best block of 12,000 acres of land
which he could find in n journey of 60 miles.
Hut he goes on to explain that only loco acres
of the land is suitable for sugar-planting, and
2000 acres for cotton ; the remainder is"poor
and swampy. " Accepting this explanation of
the quality of the soil, Mr. Cameron paid about
I5d per acre for 3000 acres of the rjchest land
suitable for the growth of sugar and cotton,
aud obtained 9000 acres of other land for. noth
ing. If is further explained in Mr. Cameron's
ingenuous way that a missionary advised the
natives to return the "trade" (the money and
presents), and not part with their land, and that
in consequence he went back to the sellers, who
re-affirmed the bargain.
Now, here is annexation with a vengencc.
Wc may be sure that other C.imerons will pay
friendly visits to New Guinea. Among the
radcrs in the Pacific, the pearl-fishers in Torres
.Strait, and the roving speculates in all parts
of Australia, there are hundreds of men, with al
most endless rcsourccs.of money, skill and in
tiigue.who would much prefer dealing with the
natives of New Guinea without the intervention
of Ilrilish or any other cslablidi-d authority.
The authority of high commissioners will avail
but little in protecting the natives against this
class of enterprising capitalists. The coloniza
tion of New Guinea by Great Hritain, with
adequate provision for the native population,
would under all circumstances be the wisest
thing that could happen. It cannot be ex
pected that the Australian people will be satis
fied with New Guinea remaining in its present
statc.or that their dissatisfaction will not Increase
as time goes on. I'ro n its geographical posi
tion in relation to Australia it seems to be
long as much as Tasmania to the great English
grcup at the Antipodes. It cannot be ex
pected that the visits of adventures to New
Guinea will not continue, or that these visits,
under no kind of authority, will not lead lo
discontent, turmoil, and outrage in the Kland.
If colonization U to take place, is it wise to
wait till the native mind is darkened by the
worst impressions of the white intruders? All
accounts agree that Ihe natives are far above
the lowest type lljat they are addicted in some
sort to regular habits of industry and are cap
able of receiving instuclion. Looking lo ihe
two courses, one or other of which seems
to be their probable destiny, I cannot see how
it can be doubted that they would have a bet
ter chance under British rule than by being left
open to the lawless influences I fear I must
add lawless asaultswhich would continually
press upon them in their present state.
If it were a question of pure philanlhophy,
and if state-craft could afford to deal with such
questions, the true advocate of the wcll-being4
of the Papuan natives .would support the colo.
nization of New Guinea. Ily no other means
can their condition be improved and protected
After the experience wc have had with ether
native races there Is no reason why ample pro
vision should not be made in any new scheme
of occupation for the preservation of their
rights, and for their permanent welfare. One
acre of land under cultivation, improved by
European example, would be worth ten In the
savage sto,te. In all respects their condition
might be rendered belter, and in no matter
ought it necessarily to be made worie, by the
sheltering power of civil govcrment, I say
nothing here of the interest of the Australian
colonies in Ihe destiny of New Guinea. Much
has been urged of late in support of the author
itatively expressed desire of the Australian
Govcrments for Ihe annexation of ihe island to
the Ilrilish Crown, as a security to the com
merce and the general progress of Ihe colonics,
and much more will be heard on the subject.
All that, however, 1 leave out of my present
view .of this matter.- Sir Henry farkti, in

The Hanging Gardens of Ilabylon were built
