DOMESTIC POLICY OF
What measure of development could
these Islands expect at the hands of the
Monarchist faction when an effort to
adwrtise them meets such objection
as these from an organ of the old
The immense benefit which Hawaii
can derive from making an exhibit at
the fair we cannot see. What are we
going to gain by it? Of course Mr.
Thurston will answer "tourists." Some
how or other the tourists are slow in
coming in spite of all the efforts of Mr.
Thurston and his crowd. And eve n if
they do come, their numbe r will never
be sufficiently large to be of any visible
benefit to the country at large. 'Tourist-travelling
in Switzerland has often
been mentioned as a prooi ot what a great
benefit,. ind what a great revenue a coun
try can derive from becoming the
place where all excursionists and
tourists desire to go. But look at the
difference. It takes a tiresome sea
voyage of fourteen days to goto Hawaii
and back to San Knncisco, while
Switzerland can be reached in less th It
twenty-four hours from nearly every
point in Europe. In Hawaii the
traveler is cut off absolutely from all
communications with his home at;d
must live not less than a month with
out being able to exchange messages,
while in Switzerland he has the c ible
and the mail and can return
home, if needed, in a few hours.
To travel in Hawaii is a costly affair.
Only well to do people can afford it.
Switzerland doesn't cost more or in
many instances as much as it costs the
traveller to stay at home and live in his
ordinary style. In Switzerland the
tourist can get anything he desires in
the line of accomodations both in the
line of eating, sleeping and drinking,
in Hawaii well, the less said the
better. No, taken as a whole, Hawaii
will not at present become a gathering
place for tourists even if she takes part
in a thousand expositions.
Our contemporary is disingenuous
The proposed display at the San Fran
cisco fair is not intended, chiefly, to
draw tourists from Europe but from
America, where the question of going
to Hawaii or to Switzerland is not
troublesome so far as the item of com
parative cost is concerned Indeed, the
population west of the Mississippi river,
and a line drawn northward and south
ward of that stream, may go to Hawaii
as quickly and easily as it can visit the
region of Mount Blanc ; and a traveler
from the Eastern States, coming this
way, would probably disburse less
money, considering the temptations to
buy and tarry along the routes of visita
tion in the Old World, than he would
if he had gone to the land of mountain
vistas and glaciers.
'Then as resptcts European sight
seers and American as well it must
be remembered that they, like other
nomads, are not to be forever contented
with that scenery which is always at
their command, Having viewed
Switzerland they want variety and are
quickly affected by the enchantments
of distance. Obviously it is worth
while to tell them of a South Sea
archipelago where the common aspects
of altitude are varied by lakes of fire ;
and where ocean, shore, Alpine heights
and tropical growths impress or charm
the eye, and a native population, lately
in savagery, afford a valuable ethnolo
gical study. To a man whose interest
is aroused by the tale of n iveltics like
these is the fact that Switzerland is
nearer to him than Hawaii a dissuading
circumstance ? Uoes the Color.idan
refuse to visit the Alps because he can
see the Rockies or the Minnesotan the
Nile because he can go out at any
time and watch the turbid flood of the
As to the means of communication
between the world at large and the
Islands, they are better than were those
between England and America as late
as 1866 1 time when foreign travel in
both directions was very great. In
reasonable course of years they will be
equal to any.
Upon the expense of Havel H.iwaii
need not suffer by comparison. We
were lately told by a complaining tour
ist that it took $500 to come here from
the Coast in first-class style, stay three
months and return , and the writer
confessed that he had been green
enough to let both hotels and hick
drivers victimize- lion I) ;es our con
temporary believe that a tourist could
go from the Atlantic ( oast of th-- United
States to England; go thence across the
channel to the continent and then
through France to Geneva; stay in
Switzerland comfortably lot three
months and return home for a smallej
sum? It might be done by means of
the steerage and third class carriages
on the rail; by walking instead of riding
in Switzerland and living on eggs, goats'
milk and black bread- -but we are
talking, as the complaining tourist did.
about the cost of journeying like a
There is a great significance in the
fact that the protest at any effort to
bring new people and new capital here
should come from a Royalist journal.
Monarchy in Hawaii what there is
left of it apparently stands for com
plete reaction. It wants the haule
kept away, dollars and all. A relapse
into semi-barbarism would suit it best
of anything. If it had its wish the
legend "No stranger need apply" woul
be p Med on all its gates and the
native and low-white population, joining
hands, would then dance on the grave
of progress to the music of the calabash
and the strain of the Ituhi hula. Thank
Providence, however, the wish will not
spawn the dire inheritance Hawaii
will go torwara in an good tilings anil
by new population, vast investments of
foreign capital, a thronging visitation of
those whom her wonders will have
drawn hither, it will make final and
cogent answer to the apostles of mis
rule and reaction.
SOME QUESTIONS ANSWERED.
To the Secretary of the Hawaiian
Board of Immigration: My attention
has long been concentrated on Hawaii
with the object of finally settling there,
and, consequently, 1 am all the time on
the lookout for information respecting
the Islands; and having just f und out
that there is a Hawaiian Board of Im
migration, I turn to you for help in the
matter. I encU.se a cutting from a
recent book purp rting to give the
temperature all the Near round, and I
,isk you to inform me if it can possibly
be correct, for I had always understood
that the climate was almost too hot for
a white man.
Secondly, also please tell me what
1 nil is worth per acre in the country
districts, and if it can be bought and a
it gal title acquired.
Thirdly, do mosquitoes, Hies, fleas,
etc., abound to an unbearable extent?
In short, any particulars you think
might be interesting to an intending
If there is any book or pamphlet
giving authentic information please tell
me how and where to purchase it. By
answering this you will greatly oblige
No. 1510 Railroad avenue, Alameda,
I. The table of temperature given
for iSyo is undoubtedly correct. In
the summer months, we have a very
mild summer temperature; in the win
ter months, the climate is decidedly
cool. The temperature is extremely
uniform, since the Islands are small in
area, and derive their temperature from
the immense ocean around them. This
North East Pac lie is always kept cool
by the great cold current sweeping
round from Alaska and Oregon to these
Islands. Hence the climate of the
Hawaiian Islands is not properly
tropical but rather sub tropical.
Wnite men work out doors all day
here with less inconvenience than in
average summer days in the United
States. For the lack, however, of win
ter to brace up the system, whites can
not average quite as many hours' work
of any sort a day the year round as in
the 'Temperate zone.
IT G Kid farming lands can gen
erally be picked up at quite moderate
prices. Perfect titles are readily se
cured. A good practical farmer can
nuke his way here to great advantage,
and can soon master the peculiarities
of method growing out of peculiar
climate and location.
The Government are now leasing
desirable tracts of crown lands at very
moderate rents, suited for coffee and
oranges. Fee simple titles for these
will und mbtedly be given on easy
terms in a short time. Other tracts of
crown lands will undoubtedly be sold
to small farmers bif.re many years,
suitable for many kinds of agriculture.
III. Insect pests give very little
trouble. People generally sleep under
mosquito bars at night, not in the diy
tune. "Fleas, flies, etc.," are no more
abundant than in California or Oregon.
The prevalent dryness of the climate
does not favor an excess of insect life
Venomous insects, centipedes, scor
pions, tarantulas lose most of their
venom in this climate, ami their bites
are thought less of than the stings of
wasps, There are no snakes whatever
There is scarcely any malaria any

in the Provisional camp The Bulletin
privately believes that the two journals
named would not be likely to love an

Bulletin would publish Ihe notices at a
