i In Memoriam,
The following preamble and resolution wore
adopted at a meeting of the Hawaiian Board cf
Missions held in thU eitj on I ho 20 th instant ; v - ?
Whekeas. the Rt. B. W. Tarker, for fortj-four
Tears a Missionary of the American Board in the
islands of the Pacific, a member cf the Hawaiian
Board cf Miasicns from it organization, and for the
past three years TresiJent of the Theological Sem
fnarj under the patronage cf both Boards, has
been removed from ua by the loving Father cf the
Universe, the Standing, Committee on foreign
Mis was, cf which Mr. Tarker has been several
years its respected Chairman, would offer the fol
lowing resolutions : : ' - t : . m - -'.
1st. That in the death of our brother we feel our
great loss ; for, in him was a valued friend, a
judicious counsellor, a faithful Missionary of the
Cross, a preacher of righteousnes?, an able in
structor cf ministers and Missionaries, a man of
mature thought, who labored in season and out
of season for the prosperity of Zion, and who, at
times intensely anxious for the ark of God, desired
above all otner things the extension of the Kingdom
2nd. That in bis removal we recognize the hand
of the All-wise Being, who does all things well,
and canoot err ; and that while our hearts deeply
mourn -oar Jose we bow in submission to the Pi vine
Will, thanking tbe Master that our brother was
spared to us for so many years, and for the assis
tance granted to him in all the doubts and perplexi
ties, iifliouiiies and sufferings through which he
was oalled to pass ; and at last for giving him the
victory, putting in. bis mouth, at the last moment,
tbe memorable words of our dying Lord, "It is
finished," and taking him to wear a crown in one
of those many mansions prepared for those who are
faithful unto death.
3d. That by the blessing of the Lord we will improve
this dispensation cf Divine Providence, that we may
be the better fitted for the work lie has for us to do,
striving to emulate the choice example of our de
parted brother ia faithfulness, eo that when our
time to depart may come, we may be able to say,
I have finished the work which Thou gaveit me
to do," and receive also a crown of glory.
4th. That we deeply sympathize with the bereaved
family of our brother Parker in this hour of their
great sorrow, and would commend them to Him
upon whom tbe husband and father leaned at all
times, knowing that He is tbe Father of the father
less, and the Husband of the Widow. ,
6th. That tbe Corresponding Secretary of this
Board communicate to tbe family of our departed
brother this action. .1

SATURDA V. MARCH 31
nkxt election f representatives of the
r-eor.le in Hip TTiIafiv AwmMv r.f thin Kirxr
d'.'in will take place, as is gcnerAlly known, in
t!ie month of February of the coming year, 1878.
Although the triol in qoestion is still cornraf
ativtly remote, nevertheless certain conditions
connected with the preeent Legislative Agscutbly
induce u t in ike (t.uic remarks on the subject.
These remarks are tbe more necessary now, as
time id ixurrtant in view of the changes which
we proton to suggest in the elective branch ol
the Legitlative Afcsemblj. Without at present
commenting upon the merit or demerit of the
native ineoibcrs of the Elective Hodj of our
legislative Asot iubly, wc feel called upon to ex
press an opinion on the ecrious inconvenience
which arises from tbe paucity of foreigners in
our Elective Legislature. Owing to a deplorable
apathy prevalent among many of our foreign pop
ulation, with reference to electioneering move
ments, it has resulted that our present Elective
Legislature is composed, with but very few ex
ceptions, of natives exclusively. Again, we
repeat, that we by no meariB desire to make it
appear by these remarks that the natives of this
country may not eventually become as fully qual
ified as foreigners to discharge the important
duties of legislators; this we believe it to be
only common justice to admit. But, where for
eigners occupy 6o weighty a position in this coun
try, whoso beet interests, monetary, commer
cial, and indu&trial, moral, social, and religious,
arc eo largely represented by tbe foreign element
of population we certainly feel bound to deplore
the almost total absence of foreigners from the
elected Representatives of the people in the Leg
islative Assembly. Among the Nobles, who are
nominees of the crown, tbe proportion between na
tives and foreigners is pretty fairly maintained.
But, in the elective body ot the Legislature, the
preponderance of the native clement is an in
congruity, which calls for emendation at our
next elections in February 1878. If the foreign
population of this Kingdom could bo roused into
something like a patriotic interest in the forma
tion of the elective Legislature of the country
and the motives are manifold which should
awaken ench a patriotic feeling wo doubt not
that, by a timely prevision such a Btato of the
polls in each of the electoral "districts at the
forthcoming elections, might be secured, as
would ensure the return of at least two foreign
ers in each of tho islands of Oahu, Maui, Ilawalf
and Kauai. J The introduction of eight for
eigners into ttio Elective Legislature would be
an inealculable benefit to the country, as even
the natives themselves muBt plainly comprehend tj
With every consideration for native talent, abili
ty, and capacity for legislatorial duties, it must
be clear to the native members themselves that
there arc numerous questions constantly being
brought forward as subjects for tbe deliberations
of their body, upon which the opinions of en
lightened foreigners are of paramount importance,
with a view to the full understanding and elu
cidation of tho eame. Indeed we may eay posi
tively that no question whatever can be intro
duced into tbe Legislative Assembly whereupon
tbe decision of foreigners of enlightenment is not
calculated to add perspicacity to the debate. We
should be very sorry to think that tbe intelligent
native population of this country, could ever
make bo deplorable a mistake as to desire to
see tho- seats of the Elective Legislators of ; the
Kingdom exclusively filled by natives themselves.
We believe that the circumstance of the present
preponderance of the native Elective Legislators,
is . the result, as we observed above, of apathy
and want of national spirit on the part of tbe
foreigners' In tbla country. Hence it is, that we
felt bound to call the attention of our foreign
population to this important question, even at
this distance of time from the forthcoming elec
tions. Wo doubt not that eight or ten foreigners
could then be returned, if the foreign population of
these Islands only bestirred themselves ever eo
little in tho matter.
Remembering the very considerable amount of
capital invested and likely to seek investment
here by foreigners; and the grave questions of
immigration, labor and public improvements' that
are euro to come up for discussion and decision
at the next session of the" Legislature; we feel
confident that all classes of our population will
appreciate the justness and expediency of our
remarks on this question.
Is another column wc publish a, letter on the
subject of a Submarine Telegraph, from Mr.
Audley Coote, of Tasmania, which has been
obligingly placed at our disposal by its recipient,
Hon. A. S. Cleghorn. From tho letter in ques
tion, the public of Hawaii nei will bo glad to
, learn that active steps are being taken to provide
the people of these islands with telegraphic com
munication with the outer world by means of a
Submarine Cable. A point on these islands,
probably at Honolulu, will be selected, according
to the cable scheme in question, as an Intermedi
ate station, on terra firma, along tbe proposed
line of Submarine Cable destined to connect Ncw
Zealand and Australia on the one hand with San
Francisco on the other. Thus, if tbia scheme be
carried out, the Hawaiian Islands, with an inter-J
mediate terra fir ma station, will become tele
graphically united with tho rest of tho world. Of
course, bo far, there is no positive certainty that
the scheme in question will be ultimately realized.
All that can be said about it at present is, that it
is on the lapis, and that thcro is good reason to
hope that it will one day become a fait accompli!
The sooner the better, eay we, with all our heart,
although a heavy additional expense will thus
as a matter of course, have to be incurred by the
Honolulu Tress, this journal included, in order
to provide the Hawaiian public with telegraphic
news.- It is an expense, however, which we 6hall
never grudge ; on the contrary, the sooner such
an outlay becomes necessary, the more gratifying
such a circumstance shall be for us, as thereby
our hopes of seeing this Kingdom telegraphically
connected with the outside world, shall have been
realized. It would be a mistake to pretend that
a very great gain can ever result to the under
taking from telegrams sent from our islands,
although we fully expect that a comparatively
large amount will be found to be paid here for
telegraphic communication with other parts of
the world. However, we believe that, on the
other Land, tbe general advantages of trade and
commerce " throughout the world will be greatly
enhanced by tbe inclusion of this Hawaiian
Kingdom in the cosmopolitan telegraphic net
work already existing by land and sea. It is a
fact beyond question that all the resources of our
islands would thus be placed within reach,
almost instantaneously, of the people of all the
rest of the telegraphically united earth ; and this
is a condition of things by which the world at
largo would bo even greater gainers than our
selves. Thus, for instance, a ship, sailing say,
from New York or London, for China or Japan,
is forced to put in to Honolulu by stress of cir
cumstances. At present, the monthly steamer
mail or casual sailing vessels alone Bene as a mo-
dium of cjmmunication between such a ship here
and its owners, or interested purii-.s elsewhere.
Where, with the cable laid down oi.ee for all,
the captain or agents of the s':;ip here could at
once communicate with the jarties therein inter
ested in any part of tLe telegraphic world. It
can easily be understood then, what a feeling of
ease must naturally be experienced by ship
owners, and even governments witli fleets, at the
rcSection that all trading cr war vessels in the
North Pacific would thus find in Honolulu a port
of rail, or of refuge, as the case might be, where
they would be at once in communication with the
other telegraphic centres of the world. This ia
only one view of the case ; we might place before
our readers others equally important. But we
deem it unnecessary to show how far the grand
mcclianiem of society throughout the whole wide
world 1 benefited by increased telegraphic com
munication, no matter how comparatively remote
and insignificant the locality may be, which is
introduced into the general telegraphic net-work
of the inhabited earth. Hence we hail with ex
ultancy the prospect, now seemingly well
grounded, and by no means remote, of the Haw
aiian Kingdom's being admitted into the impor
tant sphere of cosmical telegraphic union.
It occurs to us, before quitting this subject,
that it may be useful to call attention to the fact,
that this government has provided, by special
legislation, for tho case of electric telegraphic
enterprise within its dominions. On the 4th day.
of August, 1874, His Majesty gave the Royal
Assent to " An Act for tbe encouragement and
aid of any company now incorporated, or that
may be hereafter incorporated, for the transmis
sion of intelligence by electricity." By this Act,
very important concessions are made by this gov
ernment to telegraph companies, whether subma
rine or local. We quote in ejlenso, Section 2 of
the said Act :
"The Minister of the Interior is hereby author
ized to take up and 9et apart lor the use of such
Telegraph Company or Companies, sufficient land
and premises for Telegraph Stations and other
needful uses in operating said telegraph line or
lines, and to grant every facility for tho landing of
subaqueous cables, telegraph cord or wires, instru
ments, apparatus, and all and every article, goods,
wares and merchandise appertaining to the build
ing of such telegraphic line or lines, and tbe
transmission ol intelligence by electricity, and such
articles and merchandise shall be exempt from du
ties, and the vessel or vessels chartered, or other
wise specially engaged in the laying or mainte
nance of a telegraph line or lines, shall be- exempt
from all port charges except pilotage."
We may also observe that Section 6 of the
same Act provides amplo protection for tho prop
erty of such companies.
In fine, we may here 6tate that Captain U. C.
Moreno, a gentleman well known in the United
States in connection with telegraphic enterprise,
land a warm advocato with that government for
initiating submarine telegraphic communication
'in the Pacific, Honolulu prominently included,
is expected to arrive here by the next steamer
from San Francisco for the purpose of delibera
ting with our executive upon this important
matter. We shall welcome his arrival as an ad
ditional earnest of the ultimate realization of our
hopes of speedy telegraphic communication with
the outer world.
King Kalakaua to Senator Sargent.
The Washington correspondent of the San Fran
cisco Chronicle, under date of January 23d, writes
as follows :
Last Fall, while he was in San Francisco, Senator
Sargent received an intimation that King Kalakau.
of tbe Sandwich Islands, desired to give some tcst
monial to him for his successful efforts in securing,
legislation giving effect to the Reciprocity Treaty.
The Senator thought he could not properly be the A
recipient of any present for the discharge of an
official duty, and therefore declined it. Thereupon
the King wrote the following autograph letter,
which was received by Mr. Sargent a day or two
since : .
Honorable A. A. Sargent, 17. S. Senator, Waih
ington Sib : . I have observed with extreme satis
faction the conspicuous and honorable part you took
in promoting the necessary legislation for putting
into operation tbe Convention of Reciprocity nego
tiated by my plenipotentiaries at Washington last
I cannot but feel that in this matter you were
largely influenced by your kindness toward Hawaii
which had entered into a solemn treaty with the
United States as well as by your wish to promote
the commercial interests of your own State.
I wish therefore to tender you my personal thanks
for yonr efforts, and to request you to express to
those who co-operated with you my high apprecia
tion of the support they gave to a measure which,
though perhaps inappreciable in its eflects on your
great country, is of the highest importance to the
independence and prosperity or my people.

The King writes a olear, bold hand. The letter
is beautifully engrossed and is surmounted by . a
monogram and crown." "
