the L lief that rTov.- to Lave been well founded
that the Unti-ih Govcrnrntnt would regard &a
unfrict-dly the cjtration of the TariffAct of 187C,
which was jaseed by our Legislative Assemblj
wjth the view of raakinz up the deficiency in
revenue which it was expected would result from
the operation of the Reciprocity Treaty with the
United States. This pctation was not realised,
however, the contrary proving the case in a
marked degree. That Treaty gave an impetus to
all branches of business, and the general revenue
of the country rauch exceeded the amount derived
from the additional fifteen per cent, levied on im
portations not exempted on and after the 12th of
October, 1877. Could this result Lave been fore
seen, it is rrobable that no alteration of the tariff
would have been made by the Assembly, and that
consequently no trouble would Lave arisen.
The tone of the correspondence on the part of
the Lriti&h Government Las been moderate and
friendly. The Special Committee cf the Assem
bly in their report (which will be found in our
Supplement to-day), while they go largely into
the subject of our treaty obligations, state it aa
their opinion that there is no question at issue in
our relations with Great Britain which cannot be
adjudicated by our courts of law. The amount
paid under the additional duty of fifteen per
cent., and against the payment of which pro
tests have been made, is only $1,177.14 ; but a
much larger amount has been paid under protest
on goods that would Lave come in free Lad they
been the produce or manufacture of the United
There is no loss of dignity or Lonor in retracing
a wrong course, and we are bappy that this feel
ing pervades the Assembly, as shown by the
action recently taken to amend the Act of 187G,
which Act Las led to tLe complication treated of
in the Report. The amended Tariff Act, as
signed by the King, will be found under the head
of " Ry Authority " in to-day's paper.
It is an established international rule that
treaties with foreign Powers are supreme, and
that Legislatures cannot pass laws that shall in
anywise contravene their terms. Ofthiarulewe
must never lose sight, for when we do, we open
the door to all sorts of national complications,
invite or provoke reprisals, and place the inde
pendence of the Kingdom in peril.
"Vi th these remarks, we refer our readers to
the Report, which, with ltd appendix, will be
found worthy of preservation for future reference.

Mr. J. A. Hopper, now nearly complete J ana reaay
for operation. At the great fire of the 18th of De
cember last, Mr. Hoppcr'8 property waa burnt to the
ground stock, machinery, everything except the
boiler and engine totally destroyed. The latter was
iTed by being in storehouse with an iron roof.
No way diunted, Mr. Hopper resoWed to "try
gain," and he has now boil: three brick structures
of three, two, and one idory, respectively all j
with iron roofs and shutters, fire-proof, with extra j
heavy timbers and double lloors. The three-story ;
building is for a rice-mill, and is G0x40 feet, with
walls 17 inches thick to the second story, and from j
thence 13 inches to the top. The barrel factory, :
planing and saw-mill is two-story, with 17 inch j
walls, and 119x40 feet. The machine-shop, brass j
foundry and cUco 5s one-story, C0x2S feet, all built
in the most substantial manner. The machinery is
all of the latest and most improved patterns,
especially designed for thorough and expeditious
work, and run by a new Putnam engine built in
Fitchburg, Mass., of 65-horse power. The establish-
I ment is now only partly in operation, and when com
pleted. which will be in about six weeks, will give
3 employment to thirty-five or forty men. The brick
work of these substantial structures was executed
in t thorough and workmanlike manner Ly Messrs.
Foster & Thomas, Bricklayers and Builders.
This important enterprise, which takes the lead as
an individual investment, will rank next to the
Honolulu Iron Works in the manufacturing interests
of the country, and will keep at home large sums of
money that would otherwise go abroad. Labor-mar-hinerr

COMMUNISM IN AMERICA.
That the dangerous doctrine of Communism has
incd a wide-spread footing in America is an
rrado'uDted fact ; but, at the same time, we firmly
believe that whenever it leads to overt acts
against the peace and good order of society, it
will be stamped out without mercy or hesitation.
The people of the United States are tolerant to
the utmost freedom of the expression of all sorts
of opinions upon any eubject. But when this
freedom expands to action that shall endanger life
or the welfare of the body politic, then the advo
cates of doctrines that tend to subvert society will
find they have gone too far, and that powder and
lead will be the arguments they will have to meet.
The results of the riotous proceedings in San
Francisco and Pittsburg a year ago ought to con
vince these desperadoes of the dangerous path
they are treading. As a sample of their perni
cious teachings, read the following :
Shortly after Dr. Nobeling's attempt to assassi
nate the Emperor of Germany, the Socialists of
New York held a meeting, ostensibly for the pur
pose of disclaiming any sympathy with the crimi
nal or the crime. At the meeting one of the
speakers defended the Commune in this ambiguous
way : " To-day there ia bonietbing above govern
ments, and that is humanity. Society holds itself
perlectiy jiiatiueu in taking the head of any man
who commits crime against humanity. When a
tyrant outrages this humanity, society should rise
and crush him. Shonts of Bravo,' and deafen
ing applause. I hold it right to hang a man who
snoots un Emperor from a hotel window ; but I
also bold it right to hang a man who causes 150,
000 of bis subjects to slaughter their brethren. We
ought to hang Dr. Nobeling at once, but dou't let
us forget to hang beside him the rival assassin of
150,000 others Bismarck ; and, on the other hand,
hang the Emperor. Then I warrant you there will
be a most excellent hanging. Xobeling, like Oiritst,
icill then be cracijled beiiceen tico thhves.'' When
this sentiment was uttered there were some hisses,
but the cheers predominated, and therefore it may
be inferred that the spirit of the meeting was
hardly what the projectors would have the public
believe. If it was primarily called for the purpose
of repudiating the ussassin and hia deed, it certain
ly ended by approving both. The disgusting com
parison of Xobeliug to Christ needs no comment.
Apart from its iudecency, it sufficiently betrays
the bias of the speaker, and its reception indicates
the views of the audience. The Commuaists have
not outgrown their old weakness for murder, and
beyond a question those in New York are at heart
in lull s jmpathy with Nobeling and Hoedel.

Friday, Aug. 2. The Assembly finished con
sideration of the Appropriation Bill, having raised
salaries of the principal officers of Government
' all along the line," and appropriated $10,000 for
a memorial statue and $10,000 for Government
physicians. The bill will foot up about $1,500,

To the Editor of Le Pacific Commercial Advertiser.
Sir : Will you allow me room in your valuable
paper to say that it strikes me very forcibly that
the editor of the Gazttle knows about as much cf
the report of the Committee on Education as he
does about the amendment to the Constitution de
feated last Saturday, concerning which he leads off
last Wednesday's Issue with a pious quotation ? In
view of the facts, that leader is really ridiculous.
Two years ago a proposed amendment to Article
20 passed the Assembly, providing that no judges
whatsoever should sit in the Legislative Assembly,
nor any person holding a government office. The
last clause was new ; the former was accomplished
by striking out the words " court of record " after
the word judge. The amendment rejected last Sa
turday, it will be seen, was quite the opposite of
the affair that the erudite editor dreamed of when
he penned that leader.
He probably read with equal attention the re
port of the Committee on Edueation on which he
expends one column and a half of heavy comment.
He does not seem to observe that the Committee
expressly refrain from making any recommend
ation, simply calling attention to the grave nature
of the change proposed, which is quite recent in
some respects. In point of fact, I believe that
every member of the Committee favors the intro
duction of the English language in the common
schools, believing that a more thorough knowledge
of that language will greatly aid the Hawaiian in
stepping out and traversing the broad walks of
civilized life, and into a nobler and higher life.
Yet not only the Committee but many others, re
gret that with the proposed change, measures are
not taken to preserve, in some degree of purity, a
language which has elements of strength and much
beauty, in spite of the manifest contempt of the
learned pundit of the Gazette, whose knowledge of
tiie language ne leads us to inter is confined solely
to its use in "making love to some sentimental
wahine in the mountains." His paper has so often
borne marks of neglect as to lead to remark. Per
haps the riddle is answered. No wonder be thinks
the Hawaiian a debased language, which, in
serious moments, be would have uprooted and
cast away. W. II. Castle.
