thirty armed men held posreseion of a government
building, and nucccsf-fully defied all law, military
or civil, dictating themselves the terms on which
they would abandon their attitude of menace to
the public peace.
We have nothing to do here with the original
cau.e of the imiutc except to Kay that there
must be a real grievance before Ilawaiians will
thus act it is sufficient for us to know that we
had a small sjicciuicn of the most dangerous of
all possible revolts or mutinies, that of a body
of not too highly civilized soldiery, with arms in
their hands in open and declared rebellion. The
tina intimation of the possibility of such a dan
gcr threatening the peace and safety of the com
uiuuity, should have been iutHaotly met by those
in authority with prompt, stern, and effective
measures of repression. All red tape ideas of
military etiquette (Heaven save the mark!) or
other cumbersome forms and ceremonies that
might stand in the way of instant action, should
have been thrown to the winds. What was needed
in the outset was a man a Minister with suffi
cient decision and force of character to have as
serted his right to command, and to have assumed
the responsibility. Uut there was no such man
for the occasion in our Ministry, nor, it would ap
pear, in any other responsible position. Neither,
it may lc added, will men who have thus proven
themselves incompetent in a case of emergency,
have the decency to go out and hang themselves
Fortunatel v, the shameful affair has terminated
wltlmnt bloodshed, and the internecine warfare
which at one time was very imminent (to the per-
ccptions of those who saw and comprehended the
ominous nature of the sympathetic teelmg that
was srrcadinrr amon? the TJOPulace) has been pre-
I X l A W .1
vented. The mutineers, who had been suffered
to defy the authorities so long with impunity that
they had really become too strong to be subdued
,' without calling on the citizens lor aid, were at
4 last induced to send a deputation ot their num
ber to His Majesty the King, confined by illness
to his cottage at Waikiki. A few words from
their Sovereign had the effect, on the return of the
deputation to the Barracks, to cause the muti
neers there were only twenty-three to give up
their arms and abandon their attitude of rebellion.
But the lessons wc learn from this episode are
merely confirmatory of tliat which has been re
peatedly, from time to time set forth in tbce col
umns. Wc are reminded of both the absurdity
and the mischief not to speak here of the extrav
agance of our keeping up a Department of War,
of even the limited proportions to which we have
pretended. Absolutely and confessedly useless as
a means of preserving our independence from any
foreign aggressor, it now appears as a j-ositively
disturbing clement and a menace to the peace and
safety of the community. We are further gravely
reminded of the pitiful weakness of our (iovern-
uient, of the evident utter lack ol energy, decis
ion of character and promptitude of action, the
display of which qualities on such an occasion wc
liave a rijrht to expect from thm who hold the
iitirnd ot Cabinet Minioters.
For the past twenty years wc have been squan
dering on an average 20,000 j;r annum or
$Ct"HHi in the aggregate for the purpose of
maintaining this worse than useless Department
of War. The late unpleasantness " in this De
triment will in one respect prove most fortunate,
if it shall be the means of so thoroughly disgust
ing us with the thought of maintaining a mili
tary force, as to deter any Ministry in the future
from asking Representatives to appropriate money
therefore Let iic hive no more of the "pride,
pomp and circumstance" of a puny standing
army, which in our experience has proved a sink
of extravagance, a school for vice, and a menace
instead of a protection to tle security of society.
We need no military, beyond the volunteer com
panies which now exist, and which should be lib
erally encouragixl and maintained, as a nucleus
in any possible emergency of domestic trouble.
Our I'eople are proverbially law-abiding, and the
baton and badge of a policeman, exhibited in the
name of the law, is all-sufficient fur the ordinary
protection of life and property. It may perhaps
be deemed advisable to increase this force some
what, and to uniform and drill its members; but
beyond the maintenance of a proper guard of
honor for the person of the Sovereign, we shall
oppose any regular military establishment

ABOUT OUR STREETS.
A walk about our streets will convince most J
people that seasons of drouth do more injury to I
our roads than torrents of rain.
In fact, rain I
would serve to cleanse our thoroughfares with but
trifling damage, if it were not for the broken
condition of the surface caused by constant travel,
loosening and pulverizing the very excellent ma
terial of which our roads arc constructed.
We have thought that if the lload Supervisors
had means at hand to water the roads thoroughly,
even twice a week, with fresh water, during dry
weather, it would be wise economy iu the end.
In looking over our files of papers, we note that a
most desirable machine has recently appeared in
the streets of London, which will throw into disuse
the old watering cart. The new watering-van
consists of an iron tank 7 feet 3 inches long, 4
feet 0 inches-wide, and 2 feet C inches deep, and
which holds 450 gallons of water. The tank is
mounted on springs and carried on four wheels
with light hinged shafts. The distributor and
branch are on an improved principle, which ad
mits of the outflow of water being regulated to
meet the varying conditions of streets and of the
weather. A competitive trial between this ma
chine and the old watering cart recently took
place, the object being to ascertain the area of
ground the water from each would cover. The
width of spread from the van was 23 feet, that of
the water from the cart being 10 feet. By meas
urement after the trial it was ascertained that the
van had traveled 2,040 feet, and had spread its
water over an area of CO ,720 Fquare feet, while
the cart had traveled only 1,440 feet, and had
covered only 23,040 square feet. Shall wc have

representation, lhey are inducing the natives to
believe that reciprocity involves a partial cession of
their possessions and rights for the present, prelim
inary to total alienation in the future. In support
of these assertions they cite the giving up of Pearl
River Harbor as a coaling and naval station for the
United States, and the prospect of annexation follow
ing reciprocity. The parties who are strivine to
turn the King lrom his purpose are the subjects of
foreign maritime powers, and Americans who, from
a long and safe distance, lought hard for the South
ern Confederacy ten years ago, and have not yet
abandoned their animosity against the L nion. Reci
procity will enable the islanders to find a steady and
sure market for their products, nearer home, and
with more profitable results than can be obtained
a a a j."
elsewhere, a removal oi uuues win cause a more
vigorous demand in this country for whatever they
can supply, and in turn, will operate as a more as
sured and steadier consumption oi our manufactured
goods. It can only better the condition of both par-
ties to the treaty, simply because an interchange of
products can be cuectcd on cheaj'cr and mutually
beneficial terms. In so far as regards annexation.
we can but ask, in what respect is the condition of
a Hawaiian subject more rrclerab:e than that of an
American citizen ? Wherein are their laws or insti
tutions superior to ours? In what are thev more
prosperous and happy ? If it can be shown that a
native of the islands, or a foreigner resident there,
will lose or be injured by the change, there would be
some excuse for the rabid opposition shown by the

subject upon its own merits. It is possible that the
efforts of those gentlemen may be supplemented by
opposition on the part of Rastern sugar importers,
who may imagine that the entrance of Sandwich Isl
and sugar, duty free, will interfere with their chances
for markets ia Utah, New Mexico, Montana. Idaho
and Colorado, but they may as well abandon all such
expectations, for those markets either are now, or
soon will be, monopolized by San Francisco. They
have a wide enough field in other portions of the
Union. As a strategic point for naval operations
Pearl liiver Harbor is oi great value to our govern
ment. Had it been in our possession during the late
civil war. Confederate cruisers could not have played
havoc, as they did, with our Pacific whaling fleets.
Mr. Rhodes, of Honolulu, advances the puerile prop
osition, that American occupation of Pearl River
Harbor would be a menace to foreign nations. In
deed ! Does not Mr. Rhodes also believe, that Enz-
1 lieb possession of Barbaloes, Antigua, St. Christo-
pher, Jamaica, and a host of fine islands which
fringe the Caribbean Sea, and are within a few hours
sail of the Honda coast, is a menace to the united
States? Wc feel confident that King Lunalilo will
steadily consult the best interests of his subjects and
country by adhering to his present purpose, and
making terms of close amity with a strong maritime
power which is his nearest ntishbor. And we be
lieve that the American Government will entertain a
more favorable impression of the benefits accruing
to all parties by a Reciprocity Treaty than it has

have beta heard ly outiiiers iro:ii t'jc s.M.crs not
only against Captain Jajczay, the driU mater, in
account cf his strict discipline, tut they asserted
that they were not fairly treated in the matter ef
clothes and pruvisiccs ty the Adjutant General.
Whatever foundation they may haTe had for these
complaints will eventually appear wnen the proper
inquiry is made, but it is nevertheless true that they
had become iuite common a month ago. The imme
diate cause of the mutiny on fcunday, however, wa
the breaking out of the guard house by Some sevtru :
or eight men who were confined there for neglect of I
duty an l other breaches cf discipline. On finding
the men at large, the Captain ordered them again
into the guard house, and they nut obeying, he
struck one cf the men with the Sat cf his sword.
The man responded by knocking the officer down,
and then choking him, while others assisted iu the
punishment, until he was released by the interfer
ence of the more moderately disposed among the sol
diers, and went off to report to the AJjutant Gen
eral. That ofiicer on his arrival, attempting to ar
rest the mutineers, met with the same violent resist
ance as had the Captain, and was obliged to retire
without effecting his object. Neither would the men :
obey the commands of Gov. Dominis, who endeavored
in vain to restore discipline, and the mutinous spirit
had evidently affected the whole of the troops.
Nothing further was done on Sunday towards
quelling the mutiny, and during that night the
troops brought over from the Palace grounds three
C-pounder cannon, and planted tkem in front of the
barracks and in the principal doer way. To all
approaches made with a view to getting them to
return to duty, they declared emphatically that they
would not, until their Captain and the Adjutant
General were removed from office. Throughout Mon
day the men were quiet, relieving the guards regu
larly at the Prison and at the Treasury, but still
declaring that they would not again obey the orders
of the above mentioned officers.
On Tuesday, an informal Court of Enquiry was
held at the barracks, but the soldiers, while listening
stolidly to the advice and persuasions of those who
attempted to induce them to return to duty, persisted
in their demand for the removal of the obnoxious
officers as a sine qua nou of submission. In the
afternoon, a message was received from the King
and read to the mutineers, in which they were com
manded, on their allegiance, to return to their duty,
with a promise of pardon, or in the event of their
disobedience to be disbanded and regarded as rebels.
At once thirteen of the soldiers marched out and
surrendered to Governor Dominis. These were sent
off to the Armory, leaving twenty-four who still held
out in their demand for the dismissal of the two
officers. They declared moreover, that they did not
believe the message read to them was from the King,
but was a trick of the officers to entrap them.
It appearing thus that the mutineers were fixed in
their determination not to return to their duty except
on their own terms, and they being therefore no
longer soldiers, by virtue of the alternative offered
in the King's message, a warrant was obtained from
the Police Magistrate for the arrest of the whole
twenty-four, and placed in the hands of Marshal
Parke. The Rifles and Cavalry were called out to
support the police in making the proposed arrests.
These volunteer troops, who numbered all told about
forty men, were drawn up in front and rar of the
barracks, on Palace Walk and Beretania street.
Marshal Parke and Deputy Marshal Dayton entered
the barracks and read the warrants of arrest, which
were listened to by the men in a sort of scornful
silence, and when this formal matter was gone
through with the intimation was plainly given that
those officers were at liberty to retire, which done,
the door was slammed to behind them, and the gar
rison was in nn apparent state of seige.
This was a critical time. The mutineers were
excited and defiant in view of the threatening atti
tude assumed by the authorities. Had a shot been
fired at this juncture and any of the soldiers injured,
the consequences would nndoubtcdly have been seri
ous, for it was quite evident that the large majority
of the ropulace were friends, not of the authorities,
but of the mutineers. For the fact that there was
no overt act of hostility committed, the nation is
indebted to the conservative care and watchfulness
of Gov. Dominis.
During Tuesday night the volunteer companies
were withdrawn from the neighborhood of the bar
racks, the authorities having apparently abandoned
the intention of arresting the mutineers by force of
arms, if indeed it had been intended to do more
than try the effect of a show of force.
On Wednesday morning everything about the bar
I racks remained in statu quo, and it really seemed as
I though the authorities were powerless to bring about
the submission of a handful a little over a score of
I rebellious soldiers. Rut durinsr the forenoon, three
I a '
I of the principal men of their number were induced
to leave the barracks and proceed to Waikiki to see
His Majesty the King. His Majesty addressed a few
words to the men, telling them plainly that they
must submit to law and order, and trust to His
clemency. This they promised to do, and on return
ing to the barracks the whole body of mutineers
stacked their arms and submitted to the orders of
Major Moehonua, who was temporarily placed in
charge of the barracks.
During Thursday, although by the terms of the
King's verbal message the men were no longer sol
diers, they still remained at the barracks, apparently
in a state of uncertainty as to what to do. They had
not yet given up the idea of resistance, for they oc
cupied the time in preparing ammunition and run
ning bullets, and they appear to have had no lack of
I powder, obtained it is said from the Palace.
Yesterday morning came the final act in this sin
gular comedy, which so narrowly escaped being a
tragedy. A written message was sent to the men
from His Majesty, over His own sign manual, and
countersigned by the Minister of War, repeating in
substance the words of moderation and kindness
which he had used to the delegates cn Wednesday,
and firmly and clearly ordering all the soldiers in
the barracks to immediately give up all and every
Jcscription of government property, and to go peac-
I - o r t J' fc
ably and orderly to their homes. The men received
the message with three cheers, and at once proceeded
to obey the King's command.
Thus ends the euieute at the Larracks let us all
fervently thank Heaven without serious conse
quences. A lioslou cotemporary makes a very fair sum
mary of th " reMi'.ts " nf ttie Shah's European
trip'as follows: " He has been the cause of more
wretched puns, more toadyism, more untimely
allusions to Cyrus and Xerxes. :md more discourses
upon the advantages of polygamy than we will
ingly care to be subjected to ui;aiii. More than
this, he has shown what a wretched letter writer
hdmund Yates can be under favorable circum
stances, and has made a complete wreck of Mark
Twain, has used up Bull Run Russell, and crashed
the champion reporters of the Eundon press."
In a short time we are to have tLe collect time

their way. Arrangements have been made with
the Government at Washington whereby clocks at
all the principal points will be connected with t'.ie
National Obervatory clock in eh wa that tLe
swinging of the pendulum of the Washington clock
will be simultaneous with the pendulum strokes of
clocks all the way lrom Portland to ?an Francisco.
The clocks will be set for local time and standard
time so that astronoraicul observers and business
people can equally accommodated with the
correct lime by which t measure their actions. It
is to be hoped when that time comes that the dif
ferent public clocks in this city will be corrected
with the standard clock, so that the question
' What clock do you set your watch by?" nepd not
