the native Royalist mind very long be- About seven years ago a company

social standing and political identity is cession in Lower California from the
the actuating motive of resistance to Mexican U ivernment and put it on the
the Annexation cause. It does nolmarket. At least hlteen million acres
rood to ask what social opportunities
a family would have under any system I
of government when it had been re -
duced to dependence or benizarv. That I
is not considered. "Our social promi- I
nence will be gone, our political influ
ence will disappear," is the ceaseless,
unreasoning plea of the native aristoc
racy. As to both of these matters, the
natives are mistaken to their own harm.
In spite of the fact that there is no
longer a Queen and native government
in Hawaii, the members of the court
circle rill as high a social position
except where their own bankruptcy in
terferes with matters of dress and en
tertainment as they ever did in the
past. Everyone knows that when
members of the most exclusive social
circles in America and England, such
as the Schernwrhorni and the 1 hike uf
Newcastle, come here, they at once
put themselves into relations with
native society. This procedure would
not be changed by annexation. Alway
and ever the memory of the old regime,
the knowledge that these high-caste
Hawaiians are of honorable descent in
the geneology of the Islands, the
obvious fact that they know the refine
ments of social usages and are intelli
gent and traveled, the prosperity annexa
tion would assure, would keep them in
their coveted place in the Four Hund
red of the Hawaiian capital. They
could not be deprived of it by annexa
tion any more than the Wellesley
Burke- who are black as coals were
of their social distinction when Jamaica
began to be pre-eminently English; and
no more than the Louisiana Creoles
were when New Orleans began to fill
up with the dest endants of the cav
aliers. As to politics, the United States
opposes the governmental idea repre
sented in the colonist and the pro
consul. Cmenship is held to be the
destiny of all who cast their lot with
the American system ; and so strong is
this principle that a movement is now
on foot to organize the Indian Terri
tory into a State, giving the lately re
claimed savages home rule and a voice
in national affairs. The right to vote
is denied to no one account of race and
color. It is impossible to take the
Islands into the Union without grant
ing the natives the same voting privi
lege which has been conceded in turn
to the Creole, the native California!)
and the negro. As an American the
native Hawaiian would have his full
aay in affairs. He could not be legally
distinguished by the 'aw from a descend
ant of the Pllfilani when he came to
the polls, the Legislature or to the

farming as so much glass and sand-
paper alkali desert, pinnacled rocks,
desolate mesas; and about one million
acres of valley soil, most of it inaccessi
ble, were capable of tillage under irriga
tion. Hut water works did not exist
and could not be built except at vast
cost to the taxable population. How
ever, the company issued pamphlets
and folders of an attractive sort and
induced several hundred American
farmers to invest. It was not long
before these unfortunates found them
selves tilling a desert upon which noth
ing could grow without water a desert
as forbidding as the blackened under
world which Dante saw in his night
mare visions. Starvation stared them
in the face, and but for charily many
of them would have died Meanwhile
the exactions of Mexican law fell upon
the food and implements sent them
from the United States, and their lot
increased in misery.
There remained much land to sell and
there were no more customers. Finally
the syndicate of thieves bethought
them of a new device. The) would
hire a writer of reputation to lend the
authority of his name to their graceless
pretences. With a keen instinct they
turned to Nordhoff, and 111 a few
months out came a book on Lower Cali
fornia which covered the wide waste of
its Saharas with the glamor of romance
and the reputation of almost Eden C
fertility and charm. 'The gospel of the
Peninsula, according to N ordhoff, was
newly reaa, ana human sheep again
flocked to the slaughter. A million 1
so of dollars were cleaned up by th
Dandilti, ana atnen they left thecountiy
to their English creditors. Singularly
enough, as it soon appeared, the till

realty in the whole land a big ranch,
close to Ensenada, with mineral indi

water - was lound vested in Wallet
Nordhoff, ( 'harles Nordhoff s hopeful
son and convenient dummy. Th
dupes of the Lower California book
raged in vain. They were very hungry
and very thirsty , the) had bought land
over which, in his flight, the crow
would have to tarry his rations but
the Nordhoffs were serene. Manifest!)
it was not their funeral
It is this line and impartial judge of
land, Charles Nordhoff, who now pro
claims to the world that the tropical
savannas of Hawaii, with their rich
volcanic soil, such as that in which the
olives and the grapes of Cesarea grew
lands which have been waiting for
centuries to welcome the husbandmen
are "Irauds, ano those who invite the
farmer to them are "swindlers. It is
well to look for the motives of such a
libel. Obviously this writer is a witness
who can be purchased, and the infer
