Whether Russia and England shall
or shall not come to blows is the ques
tion agitating the rest of Europe.
America and the English Colonies arc
as deeply and almost as indirectly in
terested. If they do come to htows it
will be a war of giants, a conflict of two
civilizations, a duel to the death. It
will be well for the nations to pause
before they take sides in this tremen
dous strugglc-tpause and consider what
it means. If conflict be inevitable, if
it he a duel to the death, neutrality
cannot be maintained for long by the
rest of Europe, at least not honorable
neutrality. If that be true it is for each
nation to ask, "Which side?' "Why?"
The student of recent history takes
no slock in the shallow hpcrcriticism
that sees only the faults of English
national character and is blind and
dtaf to its virtues. The flippants who
class modern England as "a nation of
shop-keepers," "a race of time servers,''
"a government of the unprivileged
many by the privileged few," simply ig
nore facts and pervert history. The
elder England is not a field for free
lances, a greenwood glade for mere ad
venturers. l!ut the United England,
old and new, imperial anil colonial, is,
as a whole, equalled in its opportuni
ties for individual success by only
one nation under heaven the United
States of America. England is as
America is a land of freemen and the
home of freedom. The descendants of
Angle and Saxon and their co tribals
have carried free speech and personal
liberty and the right to hold one's own
to the far north and the far south.
They hac made the property of every
man over whom the Hritish flag floats
safe from exaction or spoliation, and
human life secure. Docs Russian his
tory paint a similar picture ? Read
Wallace Read nine out of every ten
review articles, in French, German or
English and be answered in the nega
tive. Russia represents absolutism,
imperialism. England's marching or
ders are "onward and upward ;" Rus
sia's are "backward a.id downward."
The one means progress, The other
That is the Anglo-Saxon way of look
ing at it. That is our way. The Rus
sian and those who believe in the Rus
sian character say it is not what Rus
sian misgovernment makes it seem. It
not, why do they permit that govern
ment to continue? The corruption,
the cruelty, the gross prostitution of
place and power that have made Russia
a rotten anarchy, bursting with de
bauchery and held together by chains,
could not exist in any Anglo-Saxon
country for five years. It has existed
in Russia lor live centuries, lo-uay
the two nations the party of growth
and the party of decay are facing each
other in Central Asia. It is for the
nations that take sides to say whether
the tree of liberty shall perish by the
blight or survive it. .
There is an apparent lack of logic ill
the metaphor of Russia's decay. If its
body politic has been gangrenous for
centuries, it may seem impossible that
even chains could have held it together.
And there are many thinkers who hold
that nihilism with all its horrors
proves the inherent soundness of the
Russian people. Perhaps it does. Out
of the corruption may spring new life.
And bankrupt Russia may retire de
feated from Central Asia to begin a
new life "of its people, by its people,
for its people."

The question of suffrage has always
taken a prominent part in the political
discussions of nations. Suffrage under
lies a nation's social and political de
velopment and advancement ; it is to
the nation what the exercise of the moral
quality is to man. The conditions
which surround the healthy exercise of
suffrage arc like thote which influence
the developement of the moral nature
and are as multitudinous and complex.
When we apeak of man's moral devel
opement we must take into account the
ambitions, the passions, and the priva
tions of life ; so when we discuss the
question of suffrage in a nation vvc
must consider the race conditions, race
ueveioittineius, ami race inclinations
which surround and will certainly Influ
ence the exercise of any political fun
The race complications which sur
round and embarrass the suffrage
question in Hawaii are numerous and
serious. Exempt though we be from

Here we have conflicting interests and
exclusive race elements, whose existence
would seem to exilude the possibility
of an intelligent and beneficial cxeicise
of a universal or manhood suffrage.

labor to supply the place of a perishing

The Press was the first Honolulu
paper to express the wish that Consul
McKinlcy might be retained. We
think his retention was the sincere
desire of the business houses of Hono
lulu and of a majority of Americans
here. At the same time we recognize
President Cleveland's perfect right
under existing laws, and following
Republican usage to appoint whom
he will t succeed the present incum
bent. Nearly every act of the new
president so far as we have .followed
his Official course has shown him to
be in sympathy with sound govern
ment and with reform in the civil
service. If he sends as good a man as
Consul McKinlcy we shall be perfectly
satisfied, and our present consul will be
the last man to "squeal."
We think most Americans vull
question the good taste of the follow
ing, which appeared in Mr. Spreckd's
paper of yesterday: "If this is the
way President Cleveland is going to
give effect to civil service reform, then
are his professions the meiest shams,
and political purity under a Demo
cratic administration a fraud. During
all the term of Consul McKinlcy's
service he was only one day abstnt
through illness. If he had been absent
half his time he would probably have
been continued in office."
The gentlemen who is responsible
for the above ought to know how
absurd it is. Tradition and the tacit
consent of the American nation has
made the consular office in effect a
political one. The civil service rules
ought to apply ; but popular opinion
has not yet demanded that they shall
apply. The new president cannot do
If the independents should demand
that King Kalakaua should dismiss
certain well known bad characters from
his privy council and appoint honest
independents in their places, Mr.
Spreckels' paper would " jump on the
proposition" with both its feet. Vet
we know that such r change would be
an improvement.; and we do not know
that the new appointee will be any
less worthy than the incumbent.
To say nothing of the discourteous
description of our new consul, as a
"political hanger-on from Ohio," the
attack upon the President of the
United States, charging him with bad
faith, fraud and cowardice, is not only
uncalled for but, coming as it doe;
from the acknowledged organ of this
government, which, every one knows,
is so deeply indebted to the United
States, is contemptible, unwise and
damaging to this country's best
It is natural that the Americans here
should have political preferences ; but
for the press of this kingdom and,
worse still, the government press, to
denounce the present administration in
the United States, upon which must
largely depend the commeicial life of
this land (the continuation or renewal
of the reciprocity treaty), is not only
base, ingratitude to this country's
Democratic friends in America for their
favors in the past, but an insult which,
perhaps, will picclude the granting of
further favors in the future. Ycstci
day morning's issue of Mr. Spreckels'
Advertiser went by the Mariposa of
yesterday to the United States, and the
enemies of our treaty will find therein a
strong cudgel which they will wield in
no weak way against the interests of
these islands. We can only hope that
its reputation abroad as the organ of an
unscrupulous monopoly will make its
dirty work powerless for harm.

Once upon a time a Dunghill cock
found a grain mine and toiled indus
triously until he had accumulated a
large store. Some of it he planted:
some of it he sold ; some of it he
gave away. He fed the poor hens and
the halt and lame and blind Bantams.
He was an industrious, a sagacious, a
just and a generous Dunghill for he
could afford to be. And many people
said : " Lo I he is a Thoroughbred I"
But after a while his prosperity began
to wane. Some of the grain he planted
on barren soil, and it yielded only tares
fnd taxes ; some of it was put in by
such bad farming that the crop turned
out to be Irish dividends : some of it
was cast upon the waters, and after
many days it did not come back. Then
the Dunghill began to consider how he
should recover his failing fortunes, and
his decision was that he should enlist
in his service an army of Dunghills
and take by might what he could not
win by right So lie did, and chose

The reduction of Jc per Hi made by
the local refiners on the 27th April
brings the cost of refined sugar down
to a lower level than was ever known
before in this city. The rate now is
very near the New York price. For
merly there was a difference of about
jcper lb between San Francisco refiners
and New York refiners. This differ
ence represented the tost of freiglrt by
rail between the two cities. Of late it
has been reported that sugar freight by
rail was reduced, owing to the great
competition existing between rival
routes. The arrangements between
dealers and local refiners have been
such that overland freights have little
influence on prices here. It has been
understood that the refiners were pre
pared to meet any change in the New
York price or in freights, so that dealers
have had little inducement to patron
ize New York refiners in whole or in
part. The local refiners consider them
sche3 abundantly able to supply and
hold this maiket as against all com
petition from abroad. Very little East
cm refined sugar, therefore, finds its
way to this city. The dealers do not
pretend to import it. Confectioners,
canners and other large consumers
have bought some of their supplies at
the East, and will probably continue to
do so, as they can generally do quite as
well as here.
The last change in rate3 is the fotiith
made this year, the other thieo having
been made in February. Prices were
changed seven times in tS8j, though
on two occasions, the rates were limited
to a single grade. There were only
four changes in 1883, against ten in
1883, twenty in t88r and eight in
t88o. Cube represents the highest
grade of White sugar, except Powd
ered, which is in limited demand,
while Extra C. represents the highest
grade of Yellow, The highest and
lowest prices of these two grades on
the market since January t, 1S80, have
been as follows :

In r88o the highest price was made
October s8th; in 1881, June 4th; in
1882, April nth; in 1883, November
16th; in 1884, March 3d; and in 1885,
February 7th. Prices generally rule
the highest during the summer months,
when the consumptive demand is natu
rally the gieatcst. This demand sets
in early in the spring upon the ripening
ol the first fruits. It will be noticed
that since June, 1881, the price of
Cube has declined 7c, or more than
one-half. And the price of extra c has
declined 654 c or more than one
half. These changes fairly repre
sent the reductions in all other grades,
and show what radical discounts have
occurred in four vears.
The last reduction here is all the
more noteworthy from the fact that the
consumptive demand is steadily increas
ing hile the deliveries of raws are falling
off, and the New York price is ad
vancing. The change was entirely un
expected, and against all the analogies
of reason. Last mail dates from New-
York report an unusually heavy export
demand for refined grades, the sales for
three days aggregating is.ooo. bbls
Granulated and Cube, the former at
5.94 and the latter at 6c This was
on the 2 2d. On-the 28th, the prices
were 6jc to 6 9-16C for Cube, and
6 i-i6c to 6ic for Granulated, showing
an advance. On the 2 2d, Extra Yellow
C was quoted in New York at 4
5c,and on the 28th at 4J6 5c. Taking
the highest rates in New York yesterday,
it will be noticed that the price of Cube
here is only tnree-sixteentns 01 one
cent higher than in New York, while
Extra Yellow (J is only jjc higher.
These differences are in strange con
trast with the uniform variation of 2c
per lb a year or two ago. No change
in ov erland freights could have narrowed
the margins to that extent. Other
causes have been more operative. Just
what those causes, are it is difficult to
ascertain. Some attribute the reason to
large stocks and dull times, and the
desire of the refiners to increase con
sumption and convert supplies into
cash. At one time there was a little
friction between the refiners, but this
is believed to have been healed. Re
cently, there has- been some friction
among jobbers, and retailers have de
rived some benefits from the same.
The system of rebate has been at the
bottom of rivalry among jobbers; Sugar
forms about 15 percent of the grocery
trade. The margin for profits is quite
small. The terms of the local refineries
are cash for 25 bbl lots. It is under
stood that they will take no orders for
less than 25 bbls, but will include due
proportions of hf bbls and boxes for
the usual difference of cand Jc per
lb for these sized packages. They also
reserve the right to change prices with
out notice. Cash of coursemeans the
usual credit of 30 days. It is custom
ary, however, to allow rebates on these
cash prices, so that the jobbers can sell
at the rates naiiled by the. refiners, and
vet have the rebate for their profit.
Some have given the customers the
benefit of this rebate, or a portion. of it,
and there is where the trouble among
the jobbers started It is claimed
that some have not only given the
whole of the rebate, but a small
bonus beside, thus widening the breach
How far the reduction by the re
finers on the 27th will effect this rivalry
between jobbers cannot be definitely
stated. The profits of the jobbers are
small enough even whin they get the
whole benefit of the rebate, since they
have to carry some of their customers
for months, until the interest on the bills
swallows up all the profits. Ihe re
ntiers just Know wnat to expcct.oecause
all their sales are for cash or its equi
valent. But the jobbers have to take
many risks, besides slow pay as a rule.
They cannot afford to sacrifice each
other on the article of sugar. W hether
rebates are graduated according to the
size of the purchase, we do not know,
but presume that this is the rule, else
there would be no encouragement for
ambition and capital and experience.

The dead Queen's house of mourn
ing had been thronged with sorrowing
friends ever since her death. Not the
house only but the grounds around it
had been visited, haunted, literally
camped upon by those who came to
honor for the last time the mortal, part
of one who had been so honored in her
time. Day and night there was a
military guard in attendance some
times Hawaiian, sometimes haole and,
day and night the kahili wavers stood
or sat beside the dead Queen's coffin
that lay in state in the same room
where 28 jears and 10 months before
She had been dressed for her royal
Then were many mourners and un
numbered respectful visitors: wailing
women and weeping men, those whose
sorrow was more quiet jet not less
deep, old friends and new friends, mere
acquaintances, the merely curious. Her
nearest relations, Albert Kuuniakea and
Stella Kcaomailani were often in trie
room. King Kalakaua, his sisters and
Qucet Kapiolani came several times.
But night and day, almost without
sleeping, a white-haired old woman
stood at the foot of the coffin i'nd
chanted the praise of the dead chief,
The coffin was covered with a
splendid pall. It had been made by
the Anglican sisterhood in 1861, to
cover the remains of the Prince of Ha
waii. A year later it was enlarged and
lay on the coffin of Kamehamcha IV,
Now it reposes with all its regal cm
broidery and all its royal pomp over
all that is mortal of Emma Kalcleona-
lani, the last link that binds the nation
to the lineage of the conquering Ka
mchamehas. The Queen's special kahilis, "Malu
lani," by name, two that had once been
a titanic one, stood at the coffin's head.
It was made from feathers taken from
the wings of the 00 bird. At the
sides of the coffin stood two tall kahilis,
enveloped in tapa, and mounted on
kauwila stafTs. They hat come down
from the ancient days in which they
heralded the approach of royalty or the
sovereign chieftaincy. Within those
tapa folds were human bones 'twas
said. When in those good old days
some folks are so fond of lamenting
"common people" saw those tapa folds
approaching they were obliged under
penalty of death, gentlemen who repine
about these degenerate days to pros
trate themselves upon their faces and
remain in that position until the royal
presrncc had passed. Two smaller
kahilis of red feathers stood beside the
two kahilis of tapa. At the foot of the
coffin stood a large black kahili, in
token ol mourning. Un a stand in
front of the coffin was a large silver
vase presented to Queen Emma by
Queen Victoria. On a stand behind
the coffin stood a silver crucifix. On
the mauka side of the room was a half-life-size
picture of the dead Queen, on
the other a portrait of her mother.
There were 44 kahilis of the Queen's
own estate standing in the hallway when
the preparations for removing the coffin
to Kawaiahao Church were Completed.
They were made ot various sorts of
feathers ; some of the short feathers of
the peacock, some of the long tail
feathers of the same bird ; two of
breast feathers 'from the albatros, one
snowy white, one seal gray; several
black and gray, made from minah
feathers; some of plover breasts ; some
of duck feathers dyed variously ; two
of pumpkin stalks, dried and colored,
made partly in kahili shape, and sur
mounted by a double crown. Folds of
crape, and black, white or orange
colored satin, or combinations ot those
colors were used to finish the kahilis,
and many native words were used in
The hour of eight o'clock, Saturday
evening, May oth, had been arranged
in a quiet manner for the removal of
the remains of the late Queen Dowager
Emma to the old kawaiahao Church,
preparatory for the funeral services.
At seven o'clock the beating of drums
was heard at barrack and armory, and
the different military companies began
assembling at the royal barracks behind
the palace. The troops were drawn up
in a hollow square in the yard within
the glare of fitful torches, with the stone
battlements frowning behind them
through the dim light. At eight o'clock
the military companies moved from the
barracks and marched along Palace
WalkNiaud Hotel street to Nuuanu
street and thence to the Uesidcucu
where the dead Quten lay.
Shortly after eight o'clock the pro
cession was formed on Nuuanu street
in the following order : Deputy Marshal
Dayton ; Honolulu Rifles, headed by
their drum corps of six drummers ; The
King's Own ; Governor Dominis,
Marshal J, H. Soper and Major Hoa
pili Baker ; Mamalahoa Guard ; The
Prince's Own; The Household Troops;
The Poola Association ; Kahili Bearers;
The Catafalque ; Col. J. H. Boyd,
Major A. Rosa and Major Holt ; Ka
hili Bearers ; Retainers and Servants of
the late Queen Dowager.
The cortege moved slowly and sadly
down Nuuanu to King street and
thence to Kawaiahao Church. The
muffled'drums always sid seemed to
sob forth the sorrow of a nation and
the torches flared among the lengthened
shadows like beacons of Fate. It was
an impressive sight a sad and solemn
thing to see living devotion and valor
marshalled in a procession of death.
The crowds on both sides of the streets
stood very quiet, with heads reverently
uncovered; many wept; and ever and
anon along the route burst the sad
wail, prolonged into a threnody of grief.
When the procession reached th
church the military drew up in line and
the catafalque passed, onward under
the dull glare ot the torches to the por
tal of the old stone church whence the
living Emma had gone forth a bride.
On each side of the doorway, alum; the
main aisle, and upon the platform were
placed large kahilis, white, black and
red, of peacock and variegated feathers,
emblems of death to the number of
sixty-four. Dozens of small kahilis were
held upon and around the platform by
attendants, and in its center was placed
the coffin, covered with a purple velvet
pun, ricniy cmoroiuercu at ncau anu
foot with coat of arms and royal em
blems in yellow and gold. Across the
bier were thrown two embroidered
sashes of royal orders pne being the
order of Kamehamcha I. At the
head of the coffin was placed a crown
draped in crape ; at Its foot a floral
cross. Upon stands near the head were
placed branch candle-Kicks, with single
candle-sticks at the foot, burning
funeral tapers. Each side the body
stood three attendants with kahilis, who
at intervals would bend their kahili
towards one another across the bier j at
times they would hold them in position
with military precision, soon to resume
their mournful movement. Sometimes
they would allow the kahilis to meet
over the coffin and would then wave
them slowly toward the head and foot be
fore they changed them to upright tiosi
tion. Many people were assembled to
keep the death-watch retainers of the
late Quccn.dclegationsof English sisters,
and foreigners some sitting and some
moving about in the fulfillment of their
sad duties. A body of eight or ten
young men filed from the right of the
platform and made a tow obeisance in
front of the bier; then took their
places with a company of about thirty
persons, among whom were women,
seated at the right of tiic main aisle.
This was a company of singers, who, at
intervals, would arise and sing songs in
honor of their departed Queen. A
female voice led in the song or chant,
at times carrying a line as a solo; then
an echo or repeat of the last of a line,
and full choruses or parts in certain
lines gave excellent effect. The singing
was accompanied only by the guitar.
Another company of male voices had a
position on the opposite side of the
aisle, near the platform, and occasion
ally gave voice in song. These were
too boisterous in their manner to give
any idea of the solemnity of the
occasion, though some excellent, rich
voices in the company rendered their
part singing very effective. Toward
midnight the company had narrowed
to those who were to keep watch and
guard by the lonely dead. All had
been done quietly, yet on one occasion
an inclination to applaud took posses
sion of a spectator at the close of one of
the meles, but it was promptly checked
by the officer on guard. No wailing
was heard within, though quite a com
pany around the foot of the steps and
at the sides of the incline up which the
coffin had been borne by strong arms,
among whom were a number with head
bowed on their hands, gave vent to
their grief in the sad wail as of despair.
When the company had mostly dis
persed, those remaining were attracted
by a couple of men seated by the rail
ing in front of Lunalilo's tomb who
were chanting in a monotonous tone
something to the honor of Queen
bmma and King Kalakaua in a spirit
of levity that verged on the freedom or
abandon of the hula. When these
ceased their monotonous mele and
suggestive gestures the company broke
up and moved palace-ward at the in
vitation of some of the soldiers off
guard, and Queen Emma was left
alone with her watch and ward.
These services have been continued
nightly, varied somewhat in detail, but
always with solemn reverence. To
morrow afternoon the last sad rites will
be performed and the mortal remains
of Hawaii's true Queen will be laid at
the gates of eternity, whereat shall be
weighed the actions of humanity. The
funeral services will take place at Ka
waiahao Church at one o'clock, p.m.;
the procession will start at two o clock,
and will proceed along King Street to
Nuuanu, and thence to the royal
mausoleum in Nuuanu Valley.
