The statement made and reiterated that
the proprietor of this journal has been In
citing ill will between native and foreign
er, and ha.a purpose to antagonize races,
will not be believed by this community, and
is not entertained aincerely by the parties
who give utterance to the charge. The re
cord of the past utterly disproves such a
calumnv. We will refer to an
to the Hawaiian People," by Mr.
published January 31st, 1&76. At the time
there was an excited political discusssion
growing out of the canvas of this city by
candidates for seats in the ensuing Legis
lative Assembly. The discussion had as
sumed a threatening character. There was
a loudly proclaimed " Emma party," an
active denunciation of a treaty with the
United States which then awaited a final
act of diplomatic consummation ; and there
was a wide-spread apprehension of some
rupture of the peace between natives and
foreigners In the community ; when the
address in both languages was largely cir
culated among the people. It appealed to
Hawaiian, saying : " When you respect
your own laws and your lawfully chosen
Sovereign, you win the respect of powerful
nations able to assist you, and' the confi
dence of men of capital who will come here
to inveftt their fortune." And went on
in three months, practically to solve the
labor question than the Government will'
do between this time and the date when
they again ask a subservient Legislature
for a vote for Immigration purposes.'
Since the a!ove was In type we have re
ceived from Capt. Nicholson the gratifying
intelligence that a planters' Association
has actually been organized.

farther-more to say : " The usual talk of
the demagogue is that the presence of the
white foreigner is connected with the decay
of the native. But this statement is not
true, and is disproven in many countries
where the red and the white live prosper
ously together. It is not true in Java and
the Moluccas, from whence your fore
fathers came. There the redskins (or brown
IeopIe) have increased from one million to
many millions since the whites went to
live among them." ' And thus in a spirit
aiming only to produce harmony and good
will between different races, did a disinter
ested party who was not a candidate on
the occasion, make a faithful and patriotic
endeavor to dispel the idea of antagonism
of race, and to promote peace between his
brethren of both races. And his endeavor
was esteemed of such efficacy at the time,
as to call forth the thanks in person of a
then Minister of the King, our present
Premier, His Excellency the Minister for
' 1 And the spirit which prompted that ad
dress animates us now. Do we seek to an
tagonize when we criticize those who dis
parage the native capacity ? They who in
sult are the antagonlzers ; and not we who
defend. Our purpose is peace. We would
always prefer to be peacemakers. But with
all our love of peace, we will not acquiesce
in an unjust disparagement of a people,
who in their days of strength kindly fostered
the race that should now reciprocate with
esjiecial courtesy and consideration.
A good deal of comment is made about
our expensive "army," and frequent sneer
is indulged in in reference to our "military
force." But in fact we have nothing in
the shape of an " army," nor any legalized
force whatever, except the police force.
Our " army " was abolished by the follow
" General Military Order. " "
" By authority in me vested by the Con
stitution as Commander-in-Chief of the
Military Forces of my Kingdom, I do here
by declare the organization known as the
Household Troops to be and the same here
by is, with the exception of the band, dis
banded the officers and men entitled
thereto to receive an honorable discharge.
" Given under my hand and seal at Wai
kiki this 12th day of September, A.D. 1873.
By the King,
" Charles R. Bishop,
Secretary at War."
With the disbanding of the " Household
Troops," our army was abolished ; and we
were in this happy state, without a stand
ing army, till the commencement of the
succeeding reign, when the then Attorney
General, Hartwel), took in hand the organ
ization of a "King's Guard," and of a
volunteer foreign militia. The Guard was,
and Is, a mere , provisional organiza
tion, without proper legal sanction, the
men being shipped as laborers, and not
enlisted, or subject to any articles of war.
80 we have no 44 army " to decry only the
44 King's (Hartwell) Guard," which modest
little body of retainers should be exempt
from our sneers and flings.
We once had an 44 army," when we had
infinitely less money. Kotzebue says, in
1816, that there were four hundred drilled
men in the fort at Honolulu, under the
command of the grand old chief Kalalmoku.
And farther on in our history, when
Finance Minister ; Judd states that the
whole receipts for the fiscal period ending
31st March, 1848, were $155,158.13, the then
Minister of the Interior, Keoni Ana, in
forms us that 44 the number of soldiers on
the island of Oahu has been reported to me
by His Excellency the Governor as amount
ing to 629 " with some smaller forces on
the other Islands. We have Indeed official
evidence that, under the prudent Ministry
of 1848, we had a force of about 1000 paid
and enlisted soldiery ; and at this time,
when we have one million dollars a year to
spend, there is a great deal of unseemly
comment about a squad of fifty men, em
ployed as a palace guard and for other
duties. : ' '

Mr. Wilder ssid Tbere are thousands of ualires

the thousands that were ready to come for all

The undertaking is a disastrous . failure. "The

making business for' merchants, than in. bringing
Immigrants for planters. The wants of the country
ai set forth in the suppressed petitions are mock

the hordes "of Chinese mTw-pTejing- upon' the

More than half, of the latge sum appropiUted

result of a hundred and eighty-fire men, women,

The prospect . is. pf the most Hoinbre. hue.
Planters must resolutely put their own shoulder to
the wheel, regardless .of those, who bavejiuherto
furnished the Government with its policy, opposi
tion to the best interest of the country In the shap
of East Indian immfjrration; They must carve out
their own destinies. They must look lor opposition
of the most determined nature, from, men tilling:
the highest offices in tbe land ; an opposition mol

likely to assist it infrus!rating their efforts. This

the truth of bis statements with bis signature ts
what planters bare bad to endure inibe Pst, and

they must expect to encounter and if possible
overcome ; or. as an alternative embrace that ruin
which baa been prepared, and will shortly over

in the faee in order to be prepared when tbe. de

The Itoard of Health are looking around
for a kite for a hospital, or house of deten
tion for suspected lepers. They have exa
mined into the availability of certain situ
ations at Iwilei, the Moehonua property,
and at Kawa, land lying makai of the
Prison, and towards Ewa. Of course there
will be objections by some parties to any
point that may be selected, on the island of
Oahu ; but such house of detention ; even,
if it were situated in the very heart of our
city, could not be any worse, nay, would
be better, than to have the lepers scattered
throughout the community as at present.
There is a leper employed at the Prison.
We noticed recently an aggravated case of
leprosy in the Insane Assylum, associating
with the unfortunates of that Institution.
And there are notorious cases of leprosy at
various points in the city, and on the isl
and. Then some will say, why not remove
them at once, to the final place of doom on
Molokai. This is easier said than done : as
has been proven to the sad satisfaction of
successive Ministers of the Interior, and
officers of our Health Board ; ever since the
energetic Dr. Hutchison took the matter
in hand in 1872; and since then, Ministers
Hail, Nahaolelua, Moehonua, Wilder; and
Docters McKlbbin, Hutchinson, and others
have attempted to carry out the matter of
It is hard, in dealing with human beings,
to isolated, or imprison them, as it were,
for a misfortune, and not a crime. The
Government of Norway had greater con

this national calamity thun we have had
yet. And our authorities, whilst having
ultimate segregation steadily, must proceed
prudently and humanely in order to accom

One of our contemporaries who was
twice a Minister of the King, saya that His
Majesty had better not venture just yet on
a tour of travel ; inasmuch as a certain
guarantee to tbe effect that he would not
exercise any more his Sovereign preroga
tive to approve or disapprove ; or even re
quest the recal of a foreign : representative
without leave, might be required of him.
And the reasonable presumption is that
were this gentleman a Minister now, he
would counsel the - King, whose indepen
dence as a Sovereign has been recognized
and declared by all the Great Powers of the
Earth to surrender this Sovereign right.
How could he with a knowledge of our
treaties with great and enlightened Powers
before him, think of such a surrender ? '

Have those who are crying out for labor
ever given a thought to tbe subject of or
ganization among themselves ? The Gov
ernment has been wasting great sums of
money trying to help them, and has suc
ceeded very partially. Planters in other
part: of the world who have had to look out
for themselves have got on better than
those in Hawaii, whom a paternal Govern
ment has undertaken to provide for. There
can be very little doubt that if our planters
had, either as individuals or in companies,
taken in hand from the first to import their
own labor, they would have got it from
somewhere, and would have had it ready
at hand about as fast as required. They
might have had to invoke the assistance of
the Government in the event of their going
to India for coolies, but even that is doubt
ful. The talk about difficulties in dealing
with the Indian Government and of the
lengthy and delicate diplomacy required,
has originated in what we believe to be an
entire misapprehension of what is required.
If regulations are complied with, and
guarantees of substantial ability to fulfil
contracts are forthcoming, it will be found
easier for a private company to deal with
the engagement of Indian coolies than for
the Government to do so and vastly less
The suggestion that a Planters Associa
tion should be founded La the right one.
This was strongly urged in 1872. There Is
always strength in union; and this is a case
on which individual outcry and individual
effort must be of little avail. If even one
half the men who are now anxious for
supplies of laborers were to meet together,
and make up their minds what they want,
and what they can afford to give an' order
to secure it, they are likely to do more
