SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 22.
05 Wednesday the 19th inst, Mr. C. C. Moreno
waa presented by bia Excellency the Minister or
Foreign AEilrs to Ilia Majesty the King, who re
ceived bim cordially as an old acquaintance. Mr.
Moreno stated to His Majesty the object of bis
mission to these Islands, and that be was entrust
ed by tbe Chinese Merchants Steam Navigation
Company, of which be is the special agent, to con
tt to llis MaiestT and to Got. Dominis, some
presents.1 He irifited His Majesty to visit the
steamer ILxhung, under the Chinese flag. Tbe
f King was" pleased to" accept the invitation, and
oo Thursday morning at half-past nine o clock
proceeded on board the steamer, lying at the P.
M. S. S. Cos dock, accompanied by tbe Minister
cf Foreign Affairs and Col. Judd, the Royal
Chamberlain. Tbe party was received by Mr.
Moreno, who presented the officers of the steamer
and Mr. Fan iaa Ei, a Chinese gentleman. An
hoar was spent in agreeable conversation and in
inspecting tbe ship, when His Majesty took bis
Thb rREcnox of steam works for the prosr cu-
tioa of mechanical pursuits, which of late bas be
come somewhat frequent in this city, is in itself a
gratifyinf evidence of enterprise and progress.
There is, kowever, one sigoiScant circumstance
connected with the establishment of these indus
tries, which in oo small degree detracts from tbe
feeling of satisfaction that would otherwise be felt.
We allode to the fact that so many of these works
axe situated ia the centre of tbe city, surrounded
by wooden structures, where they must constitute
a perpetual menace of dua ster from fire. Tbe
esplanade wonld be the proper place for the erec
tion of work of this character, or at least some
point near the htrbor and removed from tbe com
pact part of the city. We are cognizant of a case
whlca cccared not Ljng since in which a bolder
of a lot of land np town refused an advantageous
offer, because the party desiring to lease intended
to put op a steam engine and works, and which
were eventually erected on the esplanade. The
regulation of these matters. as to the limits with
in which eertaia kinds of business should be car-
tUd on. besides many others which might be men-osad--would
be the province of a ciiy govern-
jneiit. Uat as we have' no such government ana
re potjifcely to have for some years to come, per-
Jjaps tbe U&l cou,d be lnaaced to ,ook ,n'
5eabject and provide the necessary law.
We weke in irin formed las-t mctk in making
t' c etatemcnt that Mr. Fan Vau Ki, tlie Chineec
gentleman wh arrived here by tfie eteamer -chunj.
had full -wers t negotiate a treaty
lvtwf-n thi Kind ini and the Empire ol China.
(Thi error, which we ascertained t- be (?uc!i im
mediately after our piter was issued on Satun'.-ty
morning, the (Jaztilt las blindly f .11 jwed )
The gentleman named one of the wealthy
stockholder of the Lliinec Merchants Steam
N-tviyiti ,n Company, and vicit Honolulu for the
purpose! coileetir all available information as to
tbe statu of hi eountrytnen here, ani making
known the same to the authorities on his return
to China. It is scarcely necessary to say that his
report must be a most favorable one, for there is
no country under the sun that may more appro
priately be termed tbe Chinaman's iaradse than
It is quite evident however, from what has
appeared in the Hongkong and Shanghai papers,
that the Chinese government authorities are dis
posed t enter into treaty negotiations with the
Kingdom of Hawaii, and we may expect before
long to have the proposition made in definite
shape. The necessity of any treaty with China
is anything but apparent, unle-s the object might
be to bind this government not to place any re
strictions on Chinese immigration, for otherwise
our trade with that country can never amount to
much ; and even those among us who have been
to strongly in favor of Chinese immigration to
supply the labor market, are now, in view of the
incoming and swelling tide, beginning to say,
Hold, enough." The grand question will soon
be, bow to turn the tide now setting on these
shores. Under these circumstances it would be a
suicidal policy to bind ourselves by treaty to ad
mit the Chinese ad libitum, to overflow the coun
try, which they would speedily do. Besides, in
view of our treaty with the United States, it must
be remembered that a very strong argument
against its renewal would be placed in the bands
of tbe vigilant enemies of reciprocity if they were
able to point to these Islands as little else than a
colony of Chinese.
As to any encouragement that it may be in our
power to extend towards tbe establishment of tbe
Chinese trans-Pacific line of steamers, that Is
another affair, and one to which there can of
course be no objection raised by us. Such a line,
if it becomes permanent, will decidedly interfere
with tho monopoly now enjoyed by the P. M.
S. S. Company.
In acoct two months hence will take place the
general elections throughout tho Islands for
Representatives of the people in the Legislative
Asecmbly, seseion of 1880. So far as present
appearances indicate, the same apathy on the part
of foreign-born voters on this subject that has
prevailed for years pust, still exists. This city,
the capital and the seat of the wealth and intel
ligence of the Kingdom, has been for many suc
cessive sessions tbe worst represented district of
the country, and simply because tho foreign-born
subjects of the King have neglected to use their
legitimate influence in the election of suitable
men. And so it is to a great extent throughout
tho Islands ; those who have the most at stake
and the deepest interest in the enactment of
wholesome laws, allow the elections for the men
who are to make those laws to go by default.
Tbe consequence is that at every session of the
Legislative Assembly tbe Representatives of tbe
peopde are as a whole mere demagogues, and, to
say tbe least, anything but creditable to the in
telligence or civilization of the country. To pre
vent their making legislation an utter farce, they
have to be managed," and this implies more or
less of corruption. And when during the sessions
some ridiculous or injurious species of law-making
is attempted, or the shameful demoralization of
tbe members becomes apparent, none are louder
in tbeir complaints than the very men who by
their negligence of duty bave permitted the
return to the Legislature of a parcel of mer
cenary, ignorant demagogues.
But the lact that the presence of tbe Cabinet
Ministers in tbo Assembly, backed by tbe
Nobles, who generally vote with Ministers, acts
as a sort of safety-valve on the high pressure
of the native Representatives, may bave some
thing to do with the feeling of indifference as
to the elections manifested by many of the legal
voters. Moreover, it is doubtless remembered
that the King, in consultation with his Consti
tutional advisers, may withhold his signature
from any measure of an absurd or mischievous
nature that the Representatives by their numer
ical superiority, in the Assembly might succeed
in carrving through. But notwithstanding these
probable safeguards against ignorant and reck
less law-making, to which the average Repre
sentative is so prone, the fact yet remains that
by electing the right sort of men the dispatch
of public business would be vastly facilitated,
the sessions much shortened, and consequently
a large sum be saved to the Treasury, to be
expended in much-needed internal improvements
Honolulu sends four members to the Assem
bly. We can and should elect two foreigners,
--unless we choose to continue in our precat
anomalous condition of taxation without repre
sentation. There are about two hundred regis
tered voters in this district of foreign birth. If
these will combine tbey can easily secure the
election of two members out of the four. Every
foreign voter can influence at least one native
vote. Let there be an organization quietly
effected, and the result must be success.
Among all the newspapers published in Califor
nia we know of but one that opposes tbe Hawai
ian Reciprocity Treaty. That Mngle exception is
the Grocer and Country Merchant, of San Fruncis
co (not to be confounded with the f. Merchant.)
In the i-?ue of the Grocer for October 31. there is
a five column article, full of sneering abuse of
everybody connected with this country, and
abounding in misrepresentations and misstate
ments of facts as to tbe working of the Treaty.
For a wonder tbe tory that foreign sugars are im
ported at San Francisco as Hawaiian is omitted, but
be is quite absurd where he declares that "to the ex
tent that the suar and lice produced in tbe Sand
wich Islands and imported under the Reciprocity
Treaty free of duty, bas supplanted our domestic
sugar raised in Louisiana, or the rice of tbe Carolina.-
to that extent has the Reciprocity Treaty de
graded American labor. Should the treaty be renew
ed by tbe omission to give notice of its termination
in 1SS3. it is unquestionably Jestined to enlarge this
influence until perhaps it entirely breaks up and
destroys tbe cultivation of these staples in the
We may safely leave the refutation of the
Grocer's statements to the able pen of the editor of
the 5. F. Jlerchant. Says tbe Alt of November 1st:
The New York Shipping List of October 15th
contains an article beaded " The Louisiana Cane
Growers and tbe Hawaiian Treaty' which sets
forth the opposition to the Hawaiian Treaty now
being made in tbe pretended interest of the
Louisiana planters. This question is now so well
understood in its general bearings that it is quite
unnecessary for us to deal at length with the facts
stated by tbe abovenamed journal, which, by the
way. is in favor ol continuing the Treaty. We
will, however, quote tbe Stripping List's conclud
ing paragraph : " To foster the trade of the Hawai
ian Islands by such a treaty is tantamount to
building up and increasing our exports thither,
and those who advance tbe amouat of duty lost by
tbe remission of a duty on Sugar, as an argument
for tbe abrogation of this Treaty, display a lament
able ignorance as to tbe commercial relations ex
isting between those Islands and our PaciSc
Mrs. Jeeee Grant, who is living with her
daughter, Mrs. Corbin, of Jersey city, says of ber
son. Gen. Granc : I don't know as be was any
different from tbe rest of tbem, but people seem
to think I'll say so now. He was always a
steady, serious sort of a boy, who took every
thing in earnest. Even when he played he made
a business of it."
A PUBLIC HALL.
In our iue for June 23th of the present
year, in an article headed A Public Want," we
said 4Hn lulu needs a good ball for public
p urpes, cuch as : Concerts, lectures, meetings
of the citizens, balls and fairs." " In a
city of fifteen thousand inhabitants, and in a fair
w ay of considerably adding to oar population, we
are at present quite destitute of any one room,
outside of places of public worship, that can com
fortably contain say five hundred people." And
in conclusion we said " These suggestions are
here thrown out like bread cast upon tbe
waters in the hope that ere many days they may
return to us enlarged upon, much improved, and
tendiog towards a practical result."
To-day we have the satisfaction of knowing
that tbe hope then expressed has been fully real
ized. Some of our leading citizens have taken
the project in hand, a subscription paper bas been
circulated and various sums bave been pledged
for the purpee indicated, amounting already in
the aggregate to about eleven thousand dollars.
It is confidently expected that tbe Legislature at
its next session will supplement tbe sum that shall
be raised by the citizens by a handsome grant, so
that the means provided will be sufficient to erect
a ball that shall be an ornament and a credit to
the capital city of Hawaii nei.
On Wednesday evening last, a meeting of the
subscribers to the Public Hall fund was held ir
the parlor of tbe Hawaiian Hotel, for the purpose
of preliminary organization. His Ex. Edward
Preston was called to tbe Chair and Mr. Jas. W.
Robertson appointed Secretary. The Chairman,
in a few well chosen words stated the object of
the meeting and spoke of the public want which
had called forth the present movement. The fol
lowing officers ol the Association were then un
animously elected :
President His Ex 8. O. Wilder
Vice-President Dr. Jno. S. McGrew
Secretary Jno. A. Hassinger
TreaHurer . A. Hendry
A Board oi Trustees was then chosen, whose
primary duty was understood to be ta secure
from the Government a charter of incorporation
for the Association, to be styled The Musical

are the Trustees:

To the Editor of Uie Tocxfic Conmerciil Advertiser :
Sir: Ve hand you a ssmpfc ol Cuzco Corn,"
a small quantity having beer sent us for distribu
tion to tboe who will take c of it. Our object U
to introduce it into this Kingiom. Parties requiring
it will please call on us. Laese Jt Co.
Tbe following is from th Jiural Press of San
Cczco Corn. For many years past Tiburcio
Parrott, of this city, has beai endeavoring to ob
tain, through bis corresponlents in Peru, some of
this wonderful and famous corn, for the purpose
of introducing it in this Stae. His attempts have
at last resulted ia success, ind by the last Panama
steamer be received 1.500 founds of it. It bas at
tracted great attention and caused universal won
der, owing to its color, aze and quality, each
grain being very soft, crisi and fall of meat or
flour. The size of the grail is from three to four
times the ordinary corn, aid it looks like small
well-baked crackers. This corn is raised by the
Indiana in the province cf Cuzco, Peru, from
which it derives its namt. Cuzco is situated
about 450 miles from the sea, and bas an elevation
of over 11.000 feet. The clmate ia wiater. which
is very long, is very severe with heavy snow and
cold. The summer is short, being very cool and
temperate. About eight mmibd ago Mr. Parrott
received from a friend in Ptru a half dozen grains
of the corn, some of which were badly broken. A
couple of the grains were plsnted in the garden.
620 Folsom street, late ia the spring, say in May.
It ha grown well, the stalk Veing now between 14
and 15 feet high, and is bearing two ears, one
b out 12 inches long and tie other 9. Fearing
that this corn would not ma ure, it having been
planted so late, and wishing to secure the seed.
Mr. Parrott had the stalk enclosed in glass, and it
is now maturing finely. Mr. P. would have not
gone to this expense and trouble bad he supposed
that he would receive tie lot mentioned ; but af
ter having written for it for so many years be
supposed that it could net obtained in quantity.
As our readers are aware, a few ounces of this
corn was received by tbe press last spring and
planted in the University grounds in Berkeley.
It has grown 8nely, and the success of the grain
in California seems aiaured.
A fourth Chinese theatre is being erected in
San Francisco. It will be a substantial iron
building, seating 2,5)0 persons. There used to
be hot rivtlry, and tbe three theatres lost money.
Then the competing managers pooled their issues
in the Wing Ti Ping, or Company of Eternal
Peace ; but the peace has already been broken by
the new project.
By actual enumeration thirty-three democratic
newspapers in Mississippi approve and commend
