LEaMaav.anativeof Hambttrg. Germany. Ho rctameJ in
the last steamer from Sun rrancco, hat hail preTkiwly resid
ed about four year on these islands.
To thr F'litor of lit rar-ifie Commercial Advertiser :
?ih : a communication appeared in the Adtsb
tier of Sept. 2d ter the aignatore of three stars in
defence of Chintie in the United Stale and on
these Islands." In his remarks the writer says that
a feeling of hottilily is springing up on these itlandi
against the Chinese. On svgar and rice planta
tions they are competing triih the natires.'' Here
one of the three stars is in eclipse. The Chinese on
plantations do not compete with the natives on plan
tations, because natives are not only always preferred
to Chinese and always can find employment, but the
Ch'oase are not only Tery little inclined to work on
plantations bat on the whole are desired only by a
few planters, who for some caose or another are un
able to procure sufficient natite labor, the Lahaina
plantation going even so far as to driie their gang
of Chinese laborers from the plantation long before
the tioe of contract had elapsed. On the other hand
they do not compete with native labor on rice plan
tation for the very sufficient reason, because the
rice plantations are all in the hands of the Chinese
The second star, asserting that "shoe-makers,
bakers and other mechanics begin to complain " is
no doubt perfectly correct. That competition here
will doubtlce have the eSect to reduce the price ff
articles manufactured by our mechanics and perhaps
call forth more care and skill in the manufacture,"
is rather a doubtful (not to call it by any other
name) expression. No one who upholds the old
Christian sentence Utc and let lite " efer com
rUined about exorbitant charges of our mechanics,
and U is well-known and acknowledged fact that
our mechanics use as much care and skill in their
manufactures as can be found io any other country,
and I am certain that our mechanics can learn noth
ing at all from Chinese mechanics either la tools, de
sign or artistic finish, and substantial and honest
work. "There is no reason why ill feeling should
be excited because Chinese have come to these islands
or because they compete with others in their honest
efforts to support themselves and lay up money,"
says Mr. Three-star3. ,
Sow surely the third star has fallen in the mud
and deeply. There is in fact all and every reason
Whv ill feeling; should be excited among "shoe
makers, bakers and other mechanics," and their
wish to hae Chinese immigration Btopped may some
day grow into a peremptory demand. Before the in
flux of Chinese there were, aa all know, a sufficient
number of mechanics of all trades upon these islands,
met about sufficient " in their honest efforts to up
port themselves " without laying up money. As
Mr. Three-stars from his remarks appears to be not
particularly fond of the adage " litre and let hye,"
but rather would take advantage to purchase cheap
even at the mechanic's loss, we will just introduce
Mr Three-stars into the hut of a native, known as a
most hospitable race, and look at a native sitting
with wife and children around hi dish of poi and
raw flab, and enter Mr. Three-stars with a numerous
retinue, and uninvited and coolly squats down with
his companions and pusnes muio iw " ,'J1

(A fccond act to re-rise the tariff is now
before the Assembly, introduced by the Hon.
A. S. Cleghorn.) In fact, none of the contem
plated measures for making tip the anticipated
deficit consequent upon the operation of the
treaty can be made available this year; and
for this somewhat embarrascing fact the country
will have to blame only the inaction and want
of foresight of Ministers during the first two
months of the session. They must borrow
more money, and we are prepased to henr of
the introduction of a new loan act.
Wr. ritiST herewith the new act to regulate the
currency, introduced by the Minister of Finance,
and which is ordered for a final reading to-day.
With the main idea, that of making United
States gold coin the standard, we believe that no
one will be found to differ; biit some of the de
tails of the Act we regard as decidedly objection
able. The principal one of these to be noted is
the provision In section 7, imposing a duty of
ten per cent, on silver coin coming into the coun
try. We cannot but regard this as a species of
barbarism, unworthy the policy of a civilized
country, and in our cirenmetances, amounting to
a legal absurdity ; for while in one breath we de
clare United .States silver money a legal tender,
in tho next we insist that it shall not come hero
without paying a duty. And thus it will be
come the province of the Custom House guards
to search the luggage and person of every pas
senger landing on our shores (and sailors rs
well, coming ashore on liberty) to see if per
chance they may not be in the act of smuggling
silver into the country! Further we believe that
experience will show, (to the cost, not of men of
largo transactions but of the small traders) that
the proportion of silver that may be legally ten
dered in payment of debts is too limited. We
anticipate that among persons of small means,
particularly at a time when the bulk of tho gold
in the country may be locked up in tho govern
ment vaults, the difficulty in getting that kind of
coin to make tip the lawful proportion of pay
ments to be made, will prove to be eeriouely ex
pensive ; for gold will very certainly be in de
mand and be worth more thau eilvcr. There is,
however, a gleam of consolation in the reflection
that so long as tho sovereign is kept at five dol
lars, there will ho a comparatively good supply
of that coin in the country.

Sec. 1. From and after the first day of Maroh, in

boast of the wisdoa displayed. Bat as the
ATwpriation Bdl is somewhat similar to a
resume of the wisdom and progress cf a country,
instead of caase Ibr boasting, we have reason
to hide onr heads in shame. For instance, let
us see if it will appear that the Hawaiian ration
by the increase of tL foreign population ord
j decrease of. the native rac? has advanced in
civilization, good order and morality, or, on the
j other hand, that we are retrograding towards
i n condition of barbarism, anarchy and violence.
! io which no man's purse is fafe in his pocket,
and no man's bouse or estate is safe from attack
or robbery? Every foreign reader, looking at
Appropriation Bill, mast inevitably con-
j elude that
the Hawaiian nation is " soinz to
the bad," so far as civilization is concerned.
When onr government was first established
say thirty years ago it followed in most
important respects the example of older gov
ernments. For the safety of life and property,
laws were, enacted, a judiciary provided to
administrater those laws and police established
for their execution, and a few retainers of the
King acted as a loyal and voluntary body-guard
on occasions. Not to go too far back under
the reign of Kamehameha IV., a popular prince
in the prime of manhood, "every inch a King,'
with a Minister who was fond of display,
a regular uniformed soldiery was established
and maintained at a biennial expense of 40,
000; the appropriation for the judiciary was
$0 4,400, and that fjr the police force was
$41,280 the sum total appropriated for these
three departments amounting to 145,680.
In those days the population of the country
was about thirty thousand more than it numbers
to-day, so that the life, property and safety of
the people were protected by the government
at an expense of aliotit 874 cents per capita,
counting every man, woman and child. All
who lived in the days of King Liholiho will
pleasantly bring to remembrance how safe and
peaceful was his reign, even in the times when
the annual visit of the whaling fleet brought
its thousands of sailors to " recruit " in this
city ; and how the reports that went abroad
of our progress in civilization and self gov
ernment, made Hawaii nei one of the most
interesting studies in the history of nations.
And how is it now? What can be thought
of the problem presented, when with a slightly
increased foreign element, and a continued
decrease in the native population, we exhibit
a budget appropriating for tho judiciary
101 ,672 ; for police $77,450 ; and for a stand
ing army . ,70, 684? in all, for these three
departments, presumably for the protection
of life and property, the sum, of $249,802.
Only 104,022 more to keep a population of
50,000 from disturbing " the peace and diguity
of the realm," than was ' required fourteen
years ago with of population of about 80,000.
A singular commentary upon the increase of
the foreign and the decrease of the native
element in our population ! Moreover, in 1862,
the indebtedness of the country was but small,
while to-day the interest on the public debt
would suffice to keep our standing army.
Formerly tho appropriation of 40,000 bien
nially for the war department might with little
regret be conceded to a beloved young prince
and to a Minister to whom the country felt
grateful for long aud valued services. No one
was injured by the gratification of a penchant
for fuss and feathers, while the King and his
Minister were satisfied and the public amused.
But now, with a debt as much as the country
can bear, and more than it is likely ever to
repay ; while the call for needed public im
provements for the development of resources
is unheeded by the government it is proposed
to expend itco dollars and fifty cent per capita
of our population for " protection." Is not
this an outrage upon tho fame and good name
of a law-abiding people who number only
In the eyes of the world, -in view of the
amount we expend for self-protection, we must
appear to be a

-f- Tiie morning hours of Saturday were spent
in a discussion about newspapers, and the
amount of latitude that should be allowed them
in commenting upou the proceedings of the
Assembly. The offender in this instance was the
Kuokoa, native newspaper, which it appeared
had been handling the representatives, collect
ively and individually, without gloves.
The piain and extremely unpolished language
indulged in by that journal, and read in the
course of . debate, was undoubtedly calculated
to stir up the indignation of Hon. members,
who wero of opinion that it came within the
meaning of Article 52 of the Constitution,
which reads : The Legislative Assembly shall
have authority to punish by imprisonment, no)
exceeding thirty days, any person, not
member, who during t!ii
timn rvf its sirtinT ariflll mililiah onv falaA

report Of the proceedings, or insultmi
oommecta upon the earae." The subject was
dropped for tho time, but came up again oa
Tuesday, in the shape of tbe following resolu
tion, introduced by the Hon. Mr. KaIauk-04:
" Resolved, That the Sergeant-at-arms le
instructed to immediately bring to the bar or
this House, II. M. Whitney, publisher of the
Kuokeat to answer for the abusive and insulting
language, applied to uembers of tbe House in
the said newspaper." A warm debate followed,
some of the members expressing the opinion
that it would not be wise to get into a quarrel
with newspapers, and eventually the resolution
was indefinitely postponed.
On Monday, the bill to authorise a national
exhibition in 1873 was ordered for engrossment,
to be read a third time when its tarn comes.
A resolution to appropriate 15,000 for the
purposes of the exhibition, was laid on the table,
"he bill making certain birds tabu for the King
was laid on th? tsble, and that to " encourage
enlistments in the army," was indefinitely post

This is a very imperfect outline of the bill.
i which will prcbably be before the House daring
I the coming veefc. The Act to regulate the
currency was ordered to a final reading on
1 Sitnrday (to-rhy).
On Wednesday, a resolution was. brought
forward t provide a lunch for members every i
day, in order to facilitate buines. It was !
i however rejerted, some of the members who
had fought hirdest for the salary grab, declarin
that it was uncontitutional. The. Hon. M

j social opinions. They were such that I could not
' agree with him and could only feel that he was mis
taken. But to-day, we ought to strip from the man
that which did not belong to him and review his
character in its true light. S. M. Kamakau was not
; a statesman, nor a clear sighted politician. Let us
i cast aside then, that portion of his history when he
lived under a mistake, and regard him in his true
: position. As a historian and legendary writer he
stood peerless and alone among the present sons of
Hawaii. He wai a man who might well be called a
representative Hawaiian. There are but few to-day
t who present as he did the characteristics of Hawai
j ians, unhurt by the various influences of civilization.
As a thinker and reasoner, he was thoroughly ori
i ginal; he looked at questions of the day from a posi
1 tion so peculiar ai to be accountable for then onl y on
the theory of his inbred Hawaiianism. His memory
i was remarkably accurate and acute, and his method
i of connecting everts with periods of time was surpri
I singly correct. lefore the eye of his mind the an-
cient history of tht country passed in a panoramic
: picture. He caugit upon men and events in that
j picture and fixed them upon the mind of the hearer
1 with remarkable firce, producing an effect never to
be forgotten. By vord of mouth, spoken to admir-
iog listeners, he hai done much to perpetuate a his-
tory which must alvays be romantic and interesting.
: nis contributions tt the written history of this peo
: pie, as well as thotn large efforts by which he has
. perpetuated the beaitiful and original romances of
the country, have rndered Hawaii forever his debt-
or. Such men, in och labors, Hawaii can ill afford ;
j to lose. I know of no one to-day who can supply j
' his place. He stool above all about him in his posi- j
j tion as a historian and romancer. The pages writ- j
: ten by the lamented deceased would fill many a vol- ;
' ume; volumes which would grace the shelves of the :
j proudest libraries, for their record would be that of j
I a most interesting people. .
j No ori? is so por and worthless but sora? lepson j
i could bo learnct from his life. From tho life of !
I thi man much of instructive and valuablo in
1 formation can le gleaned. Well it would be,
j. could Hawaii brst of more such men, who could
; do for the fntur- as he has for the past. That
t historic past, as lng a Hawaii shall live, will be
j a fitting monurwnt to his memory, for every
i whore the page f history bear tho traces of his
j loving work. Tht most beautiful and romantic
legends arc those Toven so skillfully from the
thi-rads of his .-nemoiy. Let the nation drop a
; tear to his memory, net to the mistaken man of a
! few years pt, bit to the faithful and laborious
. historian and wrier. Most cordially let us nnite
j in supporting thr resolution offered by the Noble
! Mr. Kaai, and, aijournkig the nouse, observe tho
! day from respect to his memory.
! The Irrigation Act was on Thursday ordered
j to a third realing, as were a number of other
j bills, and a solution was adopted that the
Assembly wiF receive no more bills daring the
eseion. It wis about time, as thero are some
BO unfinishoc documpQt3 of the sort on the
, , -
eeretarj trole. Ite moat ol the day was
eTOtert to trt discasaion oi the bill to provide
an inter-sland steam service, and a vast
amount ot "Tr081""0118 knowledge was dis-
P'ajeu as to me ins ana oats ot running a
i steamer, hy bnorable members. - The question
t0 j of wtbsidy apeared to be the difficulty, the
! bill providing that government shall pay not
to exceed .45,000 per annum. This it was
: argued was eitirely too much, and the motion
. : was made to reduce the amount to $6,000,
which the otbr side held was tantamount to
no subsidy at .11. No compromise was effected
between the (intending factions, and when the
session closed lothing had been accomplished.
The House pent moBt of the day yesterday
discussing the first section of the inter-island
steam comminication Act. The shades of
Watt and FuLton, if present, might have
obtained many novel and valuable suggestions
about steam, kite in the afternoon the first
sectiou (which iad been three days under fire)
was paswd w'th an .amendment limiting the
proposed eubsfly to 15,000 per annum, and
also providing bat the contract to run a steamer
shall be enterel into 'by and with the advice
and consent cf His Majesty in Privy Council,
for a term not to ereed ten years.
