an eloquent advocate, a thorough lawyer, and a

at a rate of speed that threatened to jolt tbe ma
chine to pieces. The. driver made, a futile attempt
to get within the portals of tbe barrel, but Ibe hole
was not large enough to admit his entrance, and
before be could form another plan to escape, the
volcanio fire within tbe equine beast died out and
he came to a standstill on the corner of Nuuanu
street, thus obviating the necessity of recording an
Irrigation on Maui. We learn that the grand
irrigation scheme of Mr. Speckjes on East Maui,
is fast approaching to completion, and that the
water will be down on to " the commons " from
the mountain in about ten days. We are re
minded by a correspondent of the fact that a
little over two years ago he and we stood on a
rising ground overlooking those commons, when
we made the remark, " It will not be more than
two or three years hence when we shall see all
these rich lands, now so dry, covered with crops
of cane." Our prediction will be verified within
the coming six months.
Croquet. This game seems to have taken a
trong bold of a certain portion of the native
population, for the air has resounded with tbe
stroke of the mallet from early morn till late
(midnight) during the last few moonlight even
ings. The ground selected is close by tbe banks
of a slow winding stream and in the classic
region o1 Ford's Avenue. Tbe inquisitive foreign
er attracted by the noise and who mayhap has
played the game in -days of yore, cannot appre
ciate the Hawaiian manner, as the quarreling al
though plenty of it, as is usual in croquet, is in
a language which he nix for stay, and the classi
cal quotations and bon mots made use of are
dead to him. There should be a ruhj compelling
all natives, who play this fascinating (7) game to
carry on their conversations in English or else
foreign sightseers will lose lots of fun.
Statue of Kahedameha I. It will be remem
bered that the last Legislature appropriated the
sum of $10,000 for the purpose of procuring a
statue of Kamehameha the Conquerer, to be
placed in some prominent situation in this city.
The Committee to whom was delegated the duty
consists of the Hon. W. M. Gibson and their
Excellencies the Ministers of Foreign Affairs and
Finance. We learn that plans have been sub
mitted and adopted by the committee, which will
be sent forward to the artist, Mr. T. R. Gould,
of Boston, bv tbe mail steamer on Mondav.
rThe statue will be of bronze, representing the
rung in ancient warrior costume, its neignt,
from the bottom ol the plinth to the top of the
helmet will be 8 feet 10 inches, and the pedestal
some twelve feet. The panels of the latter will
i be appropriately inscribed and ornamented. So
Jar as we can judge the work will be an honor to
ithe country and an object of just pride to Hawai
jians as well as to the gentleman who is the
author of the suggestion, the Hon. Mr. Gibson.
ue Theatre. During the week mst
passed the community at large, both native and
foreign, have been very generous with the guid
pro quo necessary to obtain an entrance and
view the last and really tbe best efforts of tbe
California Theatre Company, who with to-night
will close a six weeks season. The plays present
ed during the past week were Cinderella on
Monday, Othello on Wednesday, a miscellan
eous programme on Thureday, the occasion of
Miss Eliza Long's benefit, tendered ber by her
numerous admirers as a token oi their
esteem, and which included scenes from
Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, and recitations
by Miss Nellie Holbrook and Mr. Fred Bock.
En passant, it is but simple justice to mention
that these two artistes have contributed greatly
to the success of the plays presented; and on this
occasion the recitation of Sheridan's Ride, which
tbe writer has often beard rendered before by
Miss H. when she was the ' daughter " of the
Hayes Invincibles, took the audience by storm,
and the applause and tenders of floral tributes
made by them to this lady evinced their apprecia.
tion of her merits. Mr. Bock's Seven Ages from
As You Like It, was a finished and masterly ren
dition and received the applause it merited.
This evening the burlesque of Cinderella will
be repeated, and Mr. Wells as the prince of
pretty fellows " may cause a palpitation in the
hearts of some of the fair sex; but it is doubtful
if the witticisms of Clorinda will not have the
effect to chaDge their thoughts from grave to gay.
lo dropping the curtain upon the departing play
ers, their forms will not be entirely lost to view,

Wailuku. August, 19tb, 1879.
The Sanger of Unrestricted Chinese Immi
gration. The stroagpst argument advanced by those who
encourage Chinese Immigration, is " Wa must
have labor or we cannot develop our wealth."
What do tbey mean by development t U tbe only
object to be attained ia the speedy cultivation of
large tracts of sugar lands, to make the produc
tions and export0.au large as possible within -a
given time, to get all tb sugar out of tbe ground
and out of the country wilh the greatest possible
speed aud tho least possible expense and tbe pro
ceeds thereof centralized and controlled by a '
few foreign or resident capitalist or lncorpora- -tions
if that ia what tbey mean by tbe develop,
mentof our wealth," then certainly it I neces
sary to import large droves of ignorant, Immoral, -degraded,
but industrioua and cheap human cattle
to do the work; but I claim there are other and
more important modes of development. Jf tbe
Islands are rich io undeveloped wealth whorefore
tbe necessity of such -undue baste in production
and disposition T In that wealth lies ample se
curity upon which to rest a strong local Independ
ence and all that is ueorssary of foreign credit;V,
wby not tbeo develop the resources ourselves,
slowly and healthfully, with home enterprise and
home industry, Inviting to our assiatrnce class of
labor and capital tbat can also assist in tbe pro
motion and perpetuity of enlightened society and
government, and tbat will be permanent among
us. There is capital enough here if pfoperlj
directed and assisted by proper enterpri carry '
on all necessary industries on a sufficiently en
larged basis for tbe general welfare, but if more
must be bad let it be of a kind that will benefit us
permanently, and let tbe luborera be of a class
tbat will make good citizens, conaumers as well a
producers, whose offapiing will grow up healthful
and intelligent supporter of good government and
law. Our resources developed under such aus
pices, would give us aa a commonwealth lasting
independence. Wby then allow a selfish few who
advocate a mistaken policy to crowd us Into a
mushroom growth, ruiuing us with Chinese cheap
labor, and morally, financially and socially stulti
fying usT But here, the chief danger of unrestric
ted Chinese immigration does not lie in labor com
petition, for tbe Chinaman doe not atop a mere
plantation machine, assisting in tbe " development
or wealth," but with hi natural acquisitiveness,
thrift and frugality of habit, (creditable attri
butes) he gradually encroaches upon all branches
of industry and trade, forcing upon tbe more liberal
wbite citizen an unhealthy competition, and even
tually driving him from tbe field. Tbat tbe Chinese
are iudustrious aud frugal, no one can deny, and
therein lies a strong argument against them, for,
such attributes make them more dangerous aa
competitors, and as they do not have tbe olber
necessary traits wbicb make the good citizen, such
aa moral character, liberality, charity, pride of
country, etc., their power to injure a community 1
enhanced by tbeir apparmt virtue. Tb Cbiua
tnan' come to our tborra with no thought of con
forming to our customs or laws, except under
compulsion. be does not affiliate in any manner.'
witb the wbite resident nor baa he any sympathy
with our form ol government, or any interest in
our domestic institutions lie brings no wife witb
bim ) bedoe-suot Intend to became ft permanent
resident ; bis law is to produce and acquire much
and consume little; be is devoted to himself aod
to his race in aotugoniatu to the rules wbicb gov
ern enligbteued society j and tbe reaull of his en
couragement here is to discourage and drive away
tbe intelligent wbite artisan or laborer who ha ft
family to support and educate. For competition
witb bim is hopeless ; he lives for six cents day I
He drives tbe shoemaker, tbe tailor, tbe sbirt
maker, remorselessly before him and lake bread
from their children's mouths. . Soon tbe retail
dealer of dry goods, groceries, hardware, will
have to " follow suit " and se-t-k a more congenial
clime ; aud after them the importers and whole
salers. Then peihape those business men, who
are now so naturally or willfully obtuse, when it la
too late to remedy the evil, will see their mistake.
It will be seen from ibe above showing tbat tbe
Chinese laborer, who (except fu rare eases) cornea
here the slave of bis countryman, is capable ol
sufficient cultivation to work incalculable injury
to tbe interests of the commonwealth, but not
enough to make an enlightened and desiiablo citi
zen. Only tbe capitalist who uses bim while in
his crude state of acmi slavery la temporarily
benefited by his cheap labor, while tbe community
aa a whole are seriously injured.
Bid tee wimsi have labor, or capital ttitt nol torn
here and develop our teeatth.
No man who has a borne here or expects tobave
one, or who feels any interest in the welfare of tbe
Kingdom, Bhould be guilty of apathy or indiffer
ence oa this subject. AU should work together to
avert an impending evil. Tbe moralist should
lift up bis voice against tbe influx of this immoral,
polygamous, opium eating scourge. The laborer,
tbe mechanic, tbe merchant, wbite and native,
should make a common cause against a common
enemy. Not against individual Chinamen ; tbey
are not to be blamed lor coming ; but against tbe
policy that enoourages them.
Such a representation may appear extravagant
and extremely radical, but tlie evidences are naany
and indisputable of the magnitude of tbe danger,
and although tbe evil may not be wrought in a
year or five years, it is sure lo come unless some
effectual mean are speedily adopted to avert it,
