heads in the ice in the latter place, but only a few were taken
on account of foggy weather and the prevalent winds being ad

finally most of the fleet passed into the Arctic Ocean ahead of
whales in foggy weather.

SATURDAY. OCTOBER 27.
His Majestv the King sailed for Kauai on the
steamer Thursday evening, for a brief visit to the
landuof Kapaa and Kealia. Ilia Majesty was
incog, and consequently no salute was fired.
Her Majestt the Queen returned to town on
Tuesday by the schooner Kettie Merrill, from a
tour of Hawaii and Maui, in good health.
The London Times towards the end of last
August had really quite unexpectedly it seems
a very busy time of it, in the midst of its
war speculations, in dealing with tbe unusual
subject of Commercial Reciprocity and Protection
ist Tariffs. It is amusing, not to Bay surprising, to
find the Times, that great oracle of British wisdom ,
all of a sudden placed in the vulgar necessity of
taking up the cudgels in defence of Free Trade,
on British soil itself, where heretofore all the
world and his wife were inclined to suppose that
the genius of Free Trade was as unassailable as
any of its kindred genii in their enchanted
castles of the " Arabian Nights," or the daunt
less Ozman Pasha in Plevna. " Time works
wonders," says the trite adage, and, in truth,
it would seem that Free Trade, after having been
put for several years past on its trial by tbe wise
men of Britain, is found to have its drawbacks
as well as its advantages. It has even become
an open question whether in certain cases the
real drawbacks of Free Trade may not, and do
not counteract all its vannted advantages. Now,
it is evident that, wherever a case can arise in
which a commercial community finds out to its
own cost that Free Trade with a foreign country
is a dead loss to its own industry, it is only
natural to expect that the commercial commu
nity so taken aback by the awkward incongrui
ties of Free Trade will seek to fortify its own
commercial position by Protectionist Tariffs,
and even, if desirable, by Reciprocity Treaties.
This is exactly the state of the case now in Spain
and Portugal, and, by a singular coincidence, the
subject has been brought upon the tapis in Lon
don at tbe Foreign office, ju6t at the time that
our own Hawaiian diplomatist is engaged in
arranging the differences arising out of tbe Reci
procity Treaty between this country and the
United States. By the still more singular con
catenation of events, it appears that at the very
same time that a difficulty has arisen between
England and Spain on the subject of the injurious
effect of the British Free Trade Tariff on the
wine trade the grand industry of the Iberian
Peninsula, a great Colonial British Possession
the Canadian Dominion is actually engaged
in agitating the policy of a commercial measure
with tbe United States similar to that which our
own able diplomatists recently secured for this
Kingdom with the North American Republic.
Here we tbink our readers will pause, with our
selves, to enjoy a hearty laugh at tbe ludicrous
feature of this commercial complication for Great
Britain, as it is really one of the best jokes that
has come on the diplomatic tapis since Free
Trade became the law of the land in the British
realms. We have no doubt that our own humor
ous diplomatist, now near the Court of St. James,
enjoys the fun keenly ; as, of course, he now may
hold the game in his own hands, with Spain on
the one band adopting a Protectioniot Tariff to
save herself from commercial ruin from the Free
Trade Tariff of Great Britain, and Canada on
tbe other hand, disposed to negotiate a Recipro
city Treaty with the United States tbe Hon.
Mr. Carter's pet policy for Hawaii nei !
With these preliminary remarks, we now pro
pose as we consider this a circumstance which
is .calculated to interest all classes of our com
mercial community, as well as our political men.
or, in general terms, the King and country to
draw up a statement of this case from the
columns of the Times, even though we should
be obliged to exceed somewhat the limits of an
-va V. .a aa
ordinary editorial article Deiievme that our
readers will find this new Free Trade com plica
tion highly interesting at the present conjuncture.
The issues of tbe Times to which we refer are
those of last August 21st, 25th, 27th, and 30th
Under the heading of ' the Spanish Tariff,"
that journal's issue of August 21st publishes
what may be termed a statement of the case , as
u British Trade with Spain in 1878 showed imports from
(hat country amounting In value to 8,763,146, and export
valued at 4,799,498. The general history of the last ten
year disclosed a gradual increase of trade. The import had
increased by 50 per cent and the export had doubled. An
exceptional movement in 1873 made the imports greater than
in any other year. This gradual development will now be
rudely interrupted by the step, taken with unwonted prompti
tude, ol tbe Spanish government in raising the customs tariff.
A reduction of duties has been fixed in favor of countries
which have Commercial Treaties with 8pain. England,
which admits to the benefits of Free Trade merchandise ar
riving under any flag, Is excluded from fiscal advanlages.
France and the United State suffer the same exclusion. Tbe
favored nations are A astro-Hungary, Belgium, Germany,
Italy, Morocco, the Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Norway,
and Sweden, Switzerland, and Turkey. The Budget was
passed on the 11th of July; on the 17 th, the Tariff received the
approbation ol the King. On the 21st ihe King fixed the date on
which it should come Into force. It was published In the
Madrid Gazette on tbe 22nd of July, and came into operation
on the 1st of the present month. Some of the more startling
results of the new regulations have been already published in
these (Tiate) columns. For instance, gray yarn from En
gland are to pay 74s. per cwt; from other countries, 48s. per
cwt. Bredtbrd dress goods 200. from other countries, 140s.
Then follows the enumeration of the duties
imposed on the several articles of trade set forth
in the new Spanish Protectionist Tariff. It is
noteworthy that England, France and the United
States are equally and alike excluded from tbe
advantages of this new Spanish Tariff. ' In the
same issue of August 21st, tbe Times has a
long editorial article on the subject of the new
Spanish Tariff in question. With a degree of
naivete which is highly amusing, tbe Times re
There is at present no danger of loo rapid a triumph of
Free Trade. We may. In truth, remark on all side a revival
f Protectionist fallacies."
The Times proceeds to comment on tbe deplor
able want of faith in Free Trade which is still
evinced in France and Germany, although that
journal adds, there is, perhaps, a firmer bold
of the truth of Free Trade in France than in
Germany." The writer in the Times alludes to
Mods. Pouyer-Quertier, of whom be says that
he is " a Protectionist, just as Lord George Ben-
tmck used to be, and will never change bis opin
ions." It is plain that the friends of Free Trade
in Great Britian are beginning to take the alarm.
They think that by offering Free Trade to the
whole world, they are entitled to claim tbe same
treatment from all commercial nations even
from Hawaii nei. They are disposed almost to
enforce their Free Trade principles by the logic
of the cannon's mouth. Thus, in this matter of
tbe new Spanish Tariff, the writer in the Times
pettishly remarks :
Our conduct (as Free Traders) gives us a right to claim
that our commodities ahould beadaiitud into Spain at the
lowest duties exacted, and Sir John Walsh am (of the British
legation at Madrid) will continue to urge this on the Spanish
Now, this was precisely the course which
Major Wodehouse was instructed by Lord Derby
to follow towards this government. Except that
in the case of the Hawaiian Kingdom there" was
an old treaty extant which owed its existence to
mere red tape informality. So that, in this
respect, the cases of Spain and the Hawaiian
Kingdom may be considered as identical.
To explain the reason why Spain, in protection
of her own industry, has adopted the new Tariff
in question, we shall here quote from the Spanish
Epoca of Madrid, as follows :
In England, ocr wines have been struggling since 1860
with the alcoholic scale introduced in that Tariff by virtue of
the Anglo-French Treaty. Without naming or specifying
where they came from and here is shown the ingenuity of
our neighbors those which go from France only pay the
duty of about one real per litre, while the Spanish wine pay,
as a general rule, about two and a half. Is it possible to sus
tain this competition ? Can our wine grower compete with
the French, who rely on the protection of treaties and the
lowering of Tariffs V
Here, then, we have the solution of tbe diffi
culty. England, while she offers Free Trade to
all tbe world, has tbe sole control of her Free
Trade Tariff, and it turns out that this very
Tariff may immensely favor one nation at tbe
cost of another, according to the nature of their
trade. The SpanUh wines, sherry and port
(the latter Portuguese wine being assimilated,
in this case) contain a much greater quantity of
alcohol than the light French wines ; and as the
British Free Trade Tariff establishes an " alco
holic scale," by which imported wines are taxed
according to their alcoholic strength, it follows
that the staple of the Iberian Peninsula
wines is driven out of the British market by
the high duties levied on them by a partial one
sided Free Trade Tariff. Thus the British Free
Traders are in a regular fiscal difficulty," and
their own Tariff becomes to them a downright
commercial trouble. The Times says :
'The present discriminating duty on wine of great alcoholic
strength is maintained lor tbe protection of the spirit duties,
and its abolition would probably be viewed with as much re
pugnance in France as it would be bailed with satisfaction in
This is a humiliating admission, by the great
organ of public opinion in England, of the in
sufficiency of a Free Trade policy in one country
which establishes its own Tariff to meet the real
commercial interests of each and every one of
The Epoea even goes the length of accusing
the framers of the British Free Trade Tariff
with a design to arrange the alcoholic scale
" with artifice" arti ficiosamente artfully so
as to favor tbe entrance of French wines into
England to tbe detriment of Spanish wines. It
is for the British Free Traders to answer this
charge of the Epoca. Tbe conclusion we draw
from this Spanish assault on British Free Trade
is, that any commercial nation is quite right in
throwing overboard Free Trade practically
applied to industry, whenever its adoption ia
found to be opposed to its own industrial devel
opment. In Spain, tbe staple product, wines, is
driven out of tbe British market, by tbe British
Free Trade Tariff. Hence, Spain at once falls
back on a Protectionist Tariff. In tbe same way,
in our own Hawaiian Islands, the staple product
sugar finds a near and profitable market over
the pond with the best prices and sure custo
mers that pay down on the square, for the sole
condition that we agree to buy exclusively from
them our foreign necessaries. How preposterous
it would be for any people to expect us to re
nounce these sterling advantages, in deference to
abstract principles of Free Trade, which, it
appears after all from the case of Spain, may in
their practical application be made " artfully"
as the Epoca says by means of a huckstered
Tariff, to ruin one commercial nation for the bene- (
Jit of another ! j
In the Timesy issue of August 30th, there is
another long editorial article on the subject of
the new Spanish Tariff, or rather a running ;
comment on a Parliamentary paper, containing
the text thereof with an explanatory letter from j
Sir John . Walsham, the British Charge ;
d' Affaires at Madrid. As the Times writer is
out o.f humor about Free Trade, he begins by
calling Sir John's letter an " unsatisfactory
story, which some people might term "poor
spite." Then he tries to derive some selfish con
eolation from the reflection that we (the
English) are not the only sufferers ; France and
the United States are in the same position as our
selves." One cannot help smiling at the cava
lier way in which the sturdy countrymen of Don
Quixote have treated the three great commercia
nations of the world. Their discontent with
France is explained by the demand of their gov
ernment that " Spain shall have the treatment
accorded by France to the most favored na
tion.' " Their complaint against the United
States is " that they (United States) levy duties
on wines varying according to their alcoholic
strength " the same as in England. The Times
writer, in an injured tone, says : "As for our
selves, we make no discrimination among the
countries with which we deal ; we have the Bame
scale of duties, whatever the country or origin of
the commodities imported into the United King
dom," To this the Spanish trader replies : You
frame your own scale of duties so as to favor our
competitors in the wine trade, (the French) to our
total ruin. So, to meet your grand Free Trade
policy, ruinous to us we shall just adopt our
own Protectionist Tariff without asking your
leave either ! Thus the matter stands ; and it
must be owned by tbe Free Traders themselves
that the framing of the Tariff will always be a
great difficulty in the way of Free Trade itself.
"While the British government and the Free
Traders of Great Britain are thus held at bay by
the Spanish Protectionists, a division in their
own ranks occurs to complicate their difficulties
A movement, it seems, is on foot on the North
American Continent, to establish a Reciprocity
Treaty between the Canadian Dominion and tbe
United States. This movement will occasion a
smile we tbink, amongst the supporters of our
own Reciprocity Treaty. The London Times
issue of August 25th has a long editorial article
on this subject. The writer in question refers to
the recommendation of " the National Board of
Trade at Milwaukee following on that of the
New York Chamber of Commerce, to obtain a
Reciprocity Treaty between Canada and the
United States." The Times writer adds :
" If ihe Dominion and the Union could agree together on the
terms on which the Customs line (between Canada and the
United States) should be abolished, the consummation would
be attended with many advantages to both, and we in Eng
land should certainly not stand in the way of it."
We think it needless to follow the writer of
the Times any further. Here we find an admis
sion emanating from the leading official journal
of Great Britain that a British Colony may be
benefitted by a Reciprocity Treaty the grand
principle of Free Trade being conveniently
shelved for the time being. The same writer
remarks : " If tbe Canadian Delegates assented
to a Treaty having this effect (Reciprocity),
Lord Derby would hesitate to reject it." We
are glad to hear tbe leading organ of great Bri
tain lay down this new doctrine on Commercial
Reciprocity, and we confidently expect that his
Lordship, when he meets our Hawaiian envoy
under these novel circumstances, with the great
likelihood of His Lordship's being called upon
shortly to ask her Majesty's approval of a
Reciprocity Treaty between the Canadian Domin
ion and the United States, will, with that
consistency for which he is distinguished at
once frankly recognise tbe many advantages
accruing to the , Hawaiian . Islands from this
Kingdom's present "Reciprocity Treaty with the
United States, and accordingly, waiving any
point raised upon a mere red tape informality,
lend his good offices ' towards the speedy and
satisfactory settlement of the existing compli
cation between the governments of Kalakaua
and Victoria. As we have heretofore remarked,
we believe that the negotiation is in tbe very
