A Libel. A recent number of a Fiji paper
published a statement to the effect that the Ha
waiian emigrant schooner StornillrJ, Capt. Jack
son, hud been engaged in kidnapping nutives on
the different islands which she visited on her
late cruise. Aside Irom the gross libel, the state
ment was full of falsehoods as to minor matters.
It was republished in the Sydney Uorninj Ikrald
of June Stb, and was received here by the last
mail from the Colonies. We learn that the govern
ment will forward to the Hawaiian Consul at
Sydney ample material to officially contradict the
injurious falsehoods of the Fiji writer.
Letter from Berlin.
The following graphic account of the second at
tempt to assassinate the Emperor William, is from
the pen of Mr. F. W. Damon, Secretary of tho Ha
waiian Legation at Berlin, and will be perused
with lively interest by our readers:
"In my last letter I mentioned the attack which
had been made upon the Emperor, and of his won
derful preservation and of the enthusiastic demon
strations of affection and loyalty which followed
immediately upon this. Scarcely had the excite
ment attending this Gist event died away, when
yebterday the whole city was thrown into the most
tremendous excitement by news of a second attack
upon the Emperor. The excitement this following
morning is very great and nothing else is talked
of. I wish I had ample time to tell you of it.
But Irom a few words you may gather some idea.
I was in my room with a young Americuu student-friend,
looking out upon the Operurl'I&ce,
when we saw crowds running in an excited man
ner dowu the Linden. We thought it was to see
the Shah of Persia, who stopped iu Berliu for a
short time on his way to Paris. Soon we 6 aw that
something more serious was attracting the public.
We rushed down stairs and towards the I'alace,
which is almost the nearest building to us. Hun
dreds and hundreds of people had already gath
ered on the Linden, and the report was quickly
circulated that a second attempt had been made
to shoot the Emperor. The excitement grew every
moment more and more intense. A thousand re
ports filled the air. This seems to be the; most
correct account. As the Emperor was driving down the Lin
den in his open carriage, a man shot at him from the third
story window of a house on the Linden. About thirty shots
entered the body and face of the Kaiser, producing serious
and painful, butnot dangerous wounds. The blood flowed freely
and his man Irom the carriage-box jumped back and support
ed him as the coachman drove to the palace, which was not
tar distant. The would-be murderer shot at himself and it is
not thought he will live. The last I heard was that be was
lying in the hospital in an unconscious state. Of his motive
in thus acting, nothing is yet definitely known, and if he dies,
it may never be. By some he is thought to be a " 8ocial
Detaociat" or Communist, by others not. W shall hear
more soon. Never have I seen such a sight. The Linden, al
most its entire length was crowded with thousands and tens of
thousands of people far on through the afternoon into the lata
evening. Men were going in all directions with the latest bul
letins. In front of the palace, a place was cleared and guard
ed by mounted-police, and the most perfect quiet kept, as the
Emperor was lying in one of the front rooms. As I look up
from my writing, there are people standing on the Linden,
looking towards the palace. As tne man wno snot at in
Emperor was brought out of the bouse and carried in the pris
on van to the prison, a terrible cry arose from the excited pop
ulace, and it required the most violent efforts on the part of
(lie mounted police to keep them from attacking him. 1
was reminded of the riot in onolulu. There were hundreds
of officers near the palace. The Empress and Crown Prince
who were both absent from the city return to-day. All the re
ports which come to us now in reference to the Emperor are
favorable, and I trust he will be fully restored. The love and
devotion of the people is something wonderful to see. The
city is perfectly quiet now and everything peaceful.
Later. The day has been full of reports about the health
of the Km,Teror. The Empress has arrived. The Crown Prince
and Princes came this evenio. I was at the Palace to-day
and wrote my .name in the vinilors' book. 1 have just beard
that the man who committed the ouirage was dead. The
wounds which he had inflicted on himself proved fatal. The
crowd is still gatbe."ed thickly ou one side of the Linden. I do
hope the Emperor will recover. I have learned moat truly to
respect aud honor him-
Honolulu, July Stb, 1678.
W. C. Parke, Esq.,
Marshal of the Hawaiian Islands, 4 c-
Dear Sir : Enclosed please find the report of the
aitsdysis of different samples of kerosene oil. which I
received from you. at the hands of Captain Fehlbebr,
of the Honolulu Police.
The result of this investigation is somewhat start
ling, for there ia not one specimen among them all
that eau be called tafe, excepting the one marked
No. 1, which was derived, as you will perceive, from
a diflereat source, and which is said to have been
imported directly from the manufacturer in Boston.
A nunDber of years ago. when I examined epeci
mens of tb kerosene oils found in our market the
case was vry different, and the results obtained at
that time were so satisfactory tnai 1 came to tne con
clusion that none but the very best oils were import
ed into these Islands by our merchants, and that our
community was comparatively safe from exposure to
those fearful accidents of which we read bo frequent
ly ia the newspapers from auroau.
But it seems that with increasing demand for the
article in question, cupidity has stepped in to lower
the etandard of quality to such an alarming extent
that we are no longer tafe. And in looking over
the list, containing specimens marked A danger-
The minority and majority report of the Commit
tee on Foreign Eolations, and the Hon. Mr. Carter's
report of his late mission to Europe to the Minister
of Foreign Affairs, were the order cf the day. u
the Assembly resolving itself into Committee of the
Whole to consider these reports, Mr. llhoJea said :
He considered the business they were cow entered
urxm was bv far the most important of the session.
and deserved the most cartful consideration f the
House; for the determination of the Assembly would
have a most material effect for good or evil on the
future of Hawaii. He had carefully gone over the
reports, and was aorry to be obliged to say that from
the minority report presented by the Hon. Chairman
of the Committee he had gained but little informa
tion as to the state 0 f our relations with the Govern
ment of Great Britten. A great portion of that
report consisted of cor respondence between Mr. Car
ter during the time he filled the office of Minister of
Foreign Affair and .Tx. Wodebouse, Her Britifh
Majesty'a Commissioner, cn the subject of the Anglo
Hawaiian Treaty cf o, and the manner in which
it would be affected ty t be Treaty of Reciprocity
with the United States.
It would be useless for binr to go over the whole of
these documents, or to take u p the time of the House
bv a lenzthened criticism cf their contents; but be
should pick cut some of the pas sagoa that struck him
most forcibly, and contrast them with others, in order
to arrive at a fair and sound conclusion. The first
he would select was a passage from Mr. Carter'
letter of May 21st. 1877. in which be said: "Re
ferring to the first and third points of this summary
cf your note, 1 have to say that the duties in this
kingdom are levied upon certain goods or classes of
goods, and not upon British produce' or goods of
He (Mr. Rhodes) would ask them, did British
goods not pay duty in the Hawaiian Custom House ?
Were they allowed to come in free ? Mr. Carter says
duties are not levied upon Britit-h produce or gooJ.
What, then, is the meaning of the IV Article of the
Treaty of lSul, which provides that "No other or
higher duties shall be iinpoecd on the importation
into the Hawaiian Islands of any article the growth,
produce or manufacture of Her Britannic Majesty's
dominions than are or thall be payable cn the like
article, be'iDg the growth, produce or manufacture
of any other foreign country?" Have British goods
never paid duty since the ratification of that treaty ?
The argument is absurd; it is a piece of special
pleading that will not stand; it is too transparent,
too shallow, to take in the British Government. If
duties are levied upon certain goods or classes of
goods, British goods are not exempted, but are in
cluded ia those classes, and have paid duties like all
In the same letter Mr. Carter says: "Ilia Ma
jesty'a Government cannot concede that the abroga
tion of the IV, V and VI Articles can change the
aspects of the question now under consideration, or
that any necessity exists ior bucu uurogauuu 10 jus
tify its present position." But since this sentence
was written me iiawanau uutituiih-ui im gmu
notice, and so yielded the point. If their view was
right, why not adhere to it ? But no, it was evident
by the terms of the treaty itself that before they
could liberate themselves from its action they must
denounce those articles that pressed, and denounce
them they did; and did they think that after de
nouncing the treaty they could retain the duties that
kl beeu paid under protest by British importers T
S'tvis course put him in mind of the man who, when
aendiag bis eon into the world, gave him this advice:
Mv con, get money; honestly if you can, but get
Mr. -Carter further says: " Remembering with
pleasure die different occasions when you have
labored io prevent any misunderstanding ou the
part of your-CJovernment of the real desires and
purposes of this ( Jovernment. I with the more con
fidence rely ou your good offices in removing any
wrong inipreMui. which Her Majesty's (Jovern
ment may have received of the effect ol any action
of His Majesty 'rf Oovernmcnt upon the British
interests iu your charge, and that you may become
more fully aware of .the good intents and pur
poses of this Government, ami 11N0 that Ilis Ma
jesty's Government may ltons clearly understand
the cause which led to your note, tin J the treaty
obligations to which you refer."
TbW; are very mjolh uud pleasant sentences;
indeed, all the sentiments and professions of 1 t iend-
tihip throughout Mr. Cartel 's letter and the report
of the Committee are pleasant to eye and ear, but
unfortunately they do not coi respond tu other more
unguarded utterances. Their real value is ap
parent from the terms of a letter from Mr. Carter
to the King, which has been disentombed by the
Majority Committee. It i dated from Loudon,
October 13. 1877, and in it occurs the n-ntence:
We thought we had reached a ready solution in
th withdrawal of the 4th Article ol the Btitii-h
Treaty by mutual consent on my agreement not to
raise duties on certain tirticles above 10 per cenl ;
but when we came to discuss the wording, I insis
ted on the expression that the article should not
be invoked in lavor of any drawbacks or free t-ntry

so to do we should use our undoubted right, af'irr

Now there is 110 mistaking this. It clearly indi
cates the value of all professions ol friendship
made by Mr. Carter nnd the Government whose
confidence he had. But it reveals more, for no
man of Mr. Carter's information and experience
could have penned such au article believing im
plicitly what he intended to Convey. Any man of
common sense tutist Know that by imposing heavy
duties on goods of one nationality, he miht pre
vent their importation from that country, but lhat
he could not raise revenue from them while the
same description of goods was imported duty free
from other matkets. Could any one be so foolish
as to believe that, although 110 threats were made,
the hollowneFs ol the representations was not seen
through? Is there no unfriendly spirit in that ex
pression ? On the contrary, is it not apparent in

them, and not by the Hnwaliifi CourtM, 11. list Him

and the Ministerial policy bus been to Indorse the

to cause Hawaii to be threatened with coercion,

ous article," " xVot a aafe oil to use," A highly
dangerous specimen." &c . il apf itrange that
we have not had many more serious accident and
loss of property to record, when such a class of oil
has been in daily use in this community.
Some of these, particularly No. 8 and No. 7,
should be made harmless at once, and for humanity 'a
sake they should not even be allowed to be exported
again, to prevent their doing mischief in other
places Every effort should be made to ascertain tbe
tource whence they were aenveu.
The specific gravity of all these sample baa been
i carefully taken by the balance and properly correct
1 ed for temperature. No. 3 and No. 7, the two most
! dangerous samples on the list, show really a greater
density (apparently) than the best pecimen, no. 1.
But on careful examination of both ample. I re
gard them as a willful fraud, having been mixed on
purpose to euit the requirements of the epecific gra
vity apparatus, and being simply made np by adding
a portion of the heavy oil to tbe more volatile and
dangerous Gasoline and Naphtha, cf which they are
largely composed. .
A some of our merchant bave lately received
offers from California to supply Kerosene Oils at low
prices for our market, stamped and marked with AST
manufacturer's name they might choose to have put

which we are exposed, and that it will no longer
avail to place confidence in the firm name undr
which the article may be sold. To prevent disaster
in the future great vigilance and care should be ex
ercised, and all doubtful and spurious oils should be
prohibited from being imported into this Kingdom.

Tbe following ia tbe draft of a bill introduced
daring the present week by tbe Hon. W. O. Smith :
As Act to amend an Act approved on the ISth
day of May, A. I)., 18C8, providing For the protec
tion of life and property against explosive substances
other than gunpowder." "
Be it enacted, &c. That the Act entitled " An
Act," &c, is hereby amended by adding the following
section, to be designated Section 3 a: "Section
3 a. It shall not be lawfal for any person or per
sons to import into this Kingdom, or sell within thi
Kingdom, benzole, petroleum, kerosene oil, or any
oils cf which the component part is naphtha, gaso
line, or spirits cf turpentine, which gives oS an in
flammable -vapor at a temperature of less than 110
degrees Fahrenheit; and whoever shall import, sell,
give or furnish to any persona in this Kingdom ben
zole, petroleum, kerosene oil, or any oil of which
the component part is naphtha, gasoline, or spirits
of turpentine, which gives off an inflammable vapor
at a temperature of less than 110 degree Fahrenheit,
shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and on
conviction before a police magistrate, or any district
justice, shall be punished by a fine not lea than
fifty dollars, nor more than five hundred dollar, or
by imprisonment at hard labor not more than one
year, or by both fine and imprisonment, in the dis
cretion of the Court.
Bee. 2. This Act shall become a law from and
after thirty days from the date of iu passage.

Derby) declined to give any guaranty or promise
that no claim would be mad" bjr return of duties
on British goods imported previous to July
What has since been dune by tlie late or present
Government, or what i proponed to be done, the
minority Committee has not informed the Aetn
blv; but we learn Irom the report of Mr. Carter to
Mr. I'eirce. made t-ince the minority report, that
Lord Salisbury, while expre.-hing his regret at the
termination of the mission, informed him that Her
Majesty's (Jovernment fully chared in hi hope that
the termination of any part of tho Treaty ,f lol
might not in any way intetfere with the relation
of Iiiendship happily fiibsiming between (ireut
Britain and the Hawaiian Inland.
Here we are. Mr. Chairman, f ace to f;ice with the
BritUb Government directly at ii-sne with it, ami
although no threat has been made, that Govern
ernment has unmletukably given 111 to understand
its views, for, according to the Cotnmittt e, "on
the 2d ol April bo?t Mr. Wod lnoise delivered to
tbe Minister of Foreign Affair a memorandum'
in the following terms : 'Her Majesty" Commis
sioner and Contiul-Geuerul has been instructed to
state to His Excellency H. A. I'eirce. His Hawaiian
Majesty's Minister ol l oieign Affairs, that Her
Majesty's Government cannot admit the right ol
the Hawaiian Government to terminate the opera
tions of the provisions of At tide IV of the Anglo
Hawaiian Treaty of 1851 until the expiration of
the twelve months' notice which tby have given.
While it remains in force, Ib-r Majesty' Govern
ment must require that it shall be faithfully ob
served, and consequently that duties improperly
levied shall be repaid.' " There are other point
made by the Brit'uh Government, but at the prea
ent time I shall pass them by. But there is no
mistaking tbe meanii.g of that communication.
Further on the Committee atates: In the Crt
instance, duties are paid by merchant or other in
dividuals, and not by or for account of any Gov
ernment; and as In trade the duty U added to the
cost of the good', the duties arc finally paid to a
very large extent by the consumer of the good.
The British Government has presented no claim,
made no demand or threat, and being a law
respecting Government, your Committee feel war
ranted in saying that should any claims be pre
sented for return of duties paid, it will have to be
done by Individuals, and such claims will bo ad
judicated by the Courts of the country accoidicg
Mr. Chairman, the fic-t part of this extract is a
truism. Duties are in gre.U measure paid by con
sumers; but jjoodi heavily taxed, or oti which
heavier duties are levied than on those of the name
description from other countries, must come in at
a disadvantage; and this is what waa provided
against by the Anglo-Hawaiian Treaty of 1851.
This is what Great Britain complains of and what
she bas given us to understand she is not disposed
From the second part of the -x tract I differ en
tirely. Great Britain is a law-respecting country.
But this U not a question of law. It is a question
of treaty. The Hawaiian Courts Lave nothing to
do with this matter. H is not a question between
the Hawaiian Government ar.d private Individual,
but between the Hawaiian and British (Jovern
ment. Duties, it i true, are paid by individuals,
but the arrrngement as to payment are made by
the Government of the different nationalities pav
ing them. T.' f in ''ii !'( :j L.-n'ii'.' been piin!
