"The Future of American Ideals."
(By Prescott F. Hall.)
IP the million people coming every year came not as special travelers,
but as an invading hostile army, public opinion would be very
different to what it is; and yet history shows that it has usually been
the peaceful migrations and not the conquering armies which have un
dermined and changed the institutions of peoples. To take the classi
cal error on this subject, we have been told repeatedly that, on the one
hand, it was the conquering Goths and Vandals, and, on the other hand,
their own vice and luxury which cost the Romans their empire. The
real cause of the fall of Rome was neither of these things. It was the
constant infiltration into Roman citizenship of large numbers of "bar
barians" that is, of races alien in instincts and habits of thought and
action to the races which had built up the Roman empire. For a time,
indeed, the mold of political structure and social habit, though crack
ing, did not break; but the new-comers assimilated the Romans faster
than they were themselves assimilated, and in time the mold broke in
pieces. In precisely the same way some provinces of France are today
becoming German, and others Italian, while the Germans are conscious
ly making use of this method in their attempt to Prussianize Poland.
The "barbarians" of the present time, however, do not come from
plateaus of Central Asia or from the jungles of Africa; they are the de
fective and delinquent classes of Europe the individuals who have not
been able to keep the pace at home and have fallen into the lower strata
of its civilization. ;
Recent investigations in eugenics show that heredity is a much more
important factor than environment as regards social conditions in fact,
that in most cases heredity is what makes the environment. This is
confirmed by the practice of the insurance companies, which attach the
chief importance to the hereditary characteristics of an individual. If
this position is sound, education and distribution can only palliate the
evils and delay fundamental changes. As Professor Karl Pearson says:
"You cannot change the leopard's spots, and you cannot change bad
stock to good; you may dilute it, possibly spread it over a large area,
spoiling good slock, but until it ceases to multiply it will not cease to be."
Intelligent foreigners, like Bourget, H. G. Wells and Le Bon, are
continually surprised that Americans pay so little regard to these mat?
ters. Already our neighbor to the north has become much more strict
as to those she admits than we are; and, in fact, the Dominion is now
rejecting at the border many whom we have admitted. And in our
own praotice we are not very logical, for we are much more stringent
in regulations as to importing cattle, sheep, hogs, dogs and horses than
we are as to human beings. The English sparrow and the gypsy moth
were not considered dangerous when first imported, but by their multi
plication have done serious damage.
The foregoing is riot intended to be a pessimistic wail. Our people
are successful in part because they are optimistic, and in general they
have little use for prophets of evil. Nor has the writer forgotten for a
moment either what the country owes to past immigration or that much
of the present immigration is desirable and valuable.
Marston Campbell has broad shoulders and he needs them. Not to
carry his responsibilities because he has none, but to bear up under the
weight of abuse which he incurs at every turn. Possibly he enjoys this
as a. form of notoriety he may think necessary to some day becoming a
really big man. The great trouble with Campbell is that he never
stands squarely on both feet, but seems to be always hedging. He is
in wrong in Honolulu, could not be in much worse in Hilo if he tried,
and now the Maui Chamber of Commerce gets after him in no uncer
tain manner. They will get after him and the whole harbor commis
sion in a way they will understand if they don't get busy and start
something at Kihei. The people over here- want that steamer landing.
They have had the money to make a start placed in the hands of the
commission, and now they want action. Now Mr. Commissioners how
soon do you think you can get started?
The Sheriff is to be congratulated on the thoroughness with which
he has cleared the noisy youngsters off the streets, after 7 o'clock. We
thoroughly believe one good turn deserves another, and now it would
be a good move to rid the community of incompetent and careless hack
and automobile drivers. These are more than a nuisance they are an
actual menace to the safety of all who use public thoroughfares,
whether walking or driving.
It is a genuine pleasure to ride to Lahaina these days. The road is
so much improved that one is almost inclined to forget. the terrible ex
perience of a ride to the ancient capital a few months ago.
The Territorial government is going after the so-called Hitchcock
berry, by making it a misdemeanor to carry or ship the plant from one
island to another.
