The Chinese Government has telegraphed to
Washington protest against the Restriction Bill,
on the ground that it is not Consistent with the
Treaty. The ten year term and the inclusion of
-killed artisans among other laborers, and the ab
m iicc of provision for laborers to cross United
States territory to other countries are especially
objected to. The reply of the American Govern,
iuent is that it is toti late to pass any amendments

shall be instructed to beek the co-operation of the
Chinese Consuls as to the Issue of certificates to

There is an article in the Arronaut of
June 24th about the Sandwich Islands
which bears the impress of the mind, of
the common topics of discussion, of our
late Attorney-General Ym. X. Armstrong
in every line. Seorea of people taking the
article in hand exclaim on reading the first
llnea "that is Nevina Armstrouir." He
was known aa the intimate acquaintance of
Mr. Pixly, the editor of the Argonaut he
boasted of this intimacy. When he went
away from the Islands, dismissed from
office, disappointed in hia hopes of the polit
ical management of this little Kingdom,
(about whose many " problems " he wsts
constantly talking) he depaited 41 breath
ing, threatnings" against the King and
the people that had found him out, and had
done with him. Here in this Argonaut ar
ticle we have the tirt expression of his
wrathful feelings. An inspiration derived
from ii disappointment and loss of temper
is manifest throughout the article. This is
the same Armstrong who, starting on a
tour with the King round the world, gushed
about their mutual schoolboy associations;
who gushed in the same strain at various
point along the extended royal tour; who
when lie returned here gushed again with
assurances that he had "inherited a love
for the Hawaiian race. tt at the same
time lie was writing home notes which sub
sequently appeared in his brother's paper
the Southern Workman of Hampton. Vii
ginia, in which were to be found such state
ments as that half the adult kanakas are
lejiers and other equally veraciousassertions
along with insinuations more damnatory
still. Founding upon all this, and led away
by it, and by his own jaundiced views, his
brother the editor was led to say that this
Kingdom was a " travesty of Government,"
that the United States must intervene, and
that property holders in Hawaii "who paid
all the taxes," must organize in autago
nism to the native Government. This in
deed was the late Attorney-General's con
staut refrain behind King Kalakaua's back
in Honolulu, and with the same sort of
thing he now inspires articles written in
the remote editorial den of the Argonaut
This man was a mistake, and appreciated
as such shortly after he had taken ollice
here. He was a failure as a lawyer, an
utter failure as an administrator, and was
too weak even to be loyal to the oath he had
taken of allegiance to the King and the
Constitution. Who among those who knew
Mr. Armstrong here, anil that reads the re
marks in the Argonaut about the " attrition
with other people" the contrast set up be
tween Queen Victoria and our King, ami
other phrases of this Argonaut article will
not recognize in every expression the man
who while holding office under King Kala
kaua, was intriguing for a change of Min
istry, sacrificing that of which he formed
part. One of his chief accusations against
political antagonists was the awakening of
"antacronisui of race;" but surely in the
Argonaut article which has been sent
throughout the Islands, anil has been trans
lated and read by thousands of Hawaiiaus,
he has developed an antagonism, not
against race certainly, but against the party
who approve his ideas, the party of foreign
assumption and proposed annexation, which
will have an enduring political effect in
these Islands, the very reverse of his hope
The British trading steamer Triumph arrived
lipre on Moiulav with about 1.10D Chinamen on
board, of whieh 231 are for this port. No eom
muuieation will be allowed with tins ship, by or
der of the Board of Health. The passengers for
Honolulu will be landed at the Quarantine Station
as noon as uroiier arrangements have been made
for their comfort there, and provisions supplied
The cost of this will fall on the ship or the Chiui-si
employers here for whom these lin-n have been im
ported. They are all engaged for Chinese plant i-
tions. no less than l.JU ol them being lor one
plover at Waimanalo.
A telegram from Port Townseml dated June 20,
states that the American exploring steamer Thom
as Corwin while off Plover Hay, spoke the Abra
ham Barker and other whalers, and learned of the
loss of the bark Sappho, of New Bedford, Captain
C'oulsen, near Plover Bay, she having lieen sunk by
ice. All hands were rescued by whalers. The Cor
win took on board Captain Coulsen and fourteen
men of the Sappho. These men were subsequently
taken to Onnalaska and left there, work being giv
en them bv the Alaska Commercial Company, on
account of the numerous losses by death of their
Aleutian employees at Ounalaska
In despatching th schooner Julia in charge of
aa experienced man like Captain Tierney to seek
laborers in the Southern Seas, the Planter.;' Labor
and Supply Company have taken a practical step
in which everv one must wish them success. The
recent news from the Western Pacific is anvtliiu
but aatUfactorv, and it will require much tact and
patience to secure laborers even from the islands
where the inhabitants are friendly. Let us hope
that Captain Tierney will find men more ready to
adventure to the Hawaiian Islands than they have
Isjen of late to ship for ilji and QueeiiblaiKl.
The F rimtt for July in it siecial Chinese sup
plement, complains, and not without reason, that
tlio presence ox a large t iniie.-.e Hpuiauoii nere is
virtually ignored in our administration of public
business. The points ma !e in the following para-
Krauh are not new, luit t.i. v have received no
attention vet. and cannot !c t fen ventilated :
Our first plea in their behalf ii tins the laws and
public notices of the Government should Iks print- a mark for miles around,
sd iu the Chinese language. We have three weekly This custom has been extending to other sec
atid two daily newspapers in English for the l:ne- . f , f ... .
fit of th foreign English shaking population
and three weekly newsnaiiers for Hawaiiaus, but
not one word is published in the Chinese language
for the ls?netit of 11. 001 Chinese tax-payers. Our
next plea is in behalf of the educational interests
of the Chinese. The P.oird of Education is ex
tending its thousands f r Hawaiiaus, and for En
lish Schools, now we think the Board should d
evervtliing possible for the education of the Chi
nese." To which we may add that what is here
proposed is as much needed- for the welfare and
safety of the State as for the good of the Chinese
FROM OCR OWN CORRESPONDENT.
San Francisco, July 1, 1SS2.
Last week was an eventful one in San Fran
cisco, und newspajr men were happy in the
possession of sensations. The disastrous plunder
ing of the steamer .Escumbi, just outside the
Heads, was the leading topic ; and the findings
of the British Consular Court that the ship was
lost by a j eril of the sea, and exonerating Captain
Purvis from all blame, created as great a sensa
tion as the loss of the ship. The result is almost
unanimously condemned as a whitewash."
Close on the heels of the loss of the Escambia
I came a series of fatal stage-coach accidents.

on this case. - Fortunately no lives were lost.
As evidence of the misfortune recently attendant
upon merrymaking, it may be be here stated that
during t he present vacation of the Public schools,
ten pupils of the High School have, in various
manners, met violent deaths and 4th of July

Yesterday Guiteau was hanged to the genera
satisfaction of the American people. Speculation
has been rife for months as to his conduct during
the closing scenes, and the general impression
seems to have bean that be would break down
completely, and hiire to be carried bodily to the
gallows, though maoy beld that he would die
like an enthusiast and martjr beld up by his j
ballucinati hi. Neither view passed Quite nnht
The a?s.isrin, on the wh ile, carried himself fairly !

During the iiiht previous to his execution he was

Poring the Kren.n he wat most of the time,
cl eted oit'i his sr iritual adviser, Dr. ILeks,
making his will (he had only his cadaver to dis-
j-ose of), comprising a prayer lor the scaffold and
a ridiculous pcreed oi verses, which lie termed

bceuied to be to escape his thoughts by busy
occupation. At times, when his mind became
disengaged, his cooluess deserted him, aDd tears

the question ot (.iuiteau's insanity by anatomical

viso that it should not be used for any mercenary
purpose. It is understood that, with the con

There is a very pretty custom in some of the
Western states of America, where on a certain
day, generally in April, all the people, men,
women and children, engage in planting trees, on
their farms, or arjund their little homestead cot
tages, or along the public highways. This cus
tout originated in the prarie Stale of Nebraska
whose treeless plains bad a most cheerless and
uninviting look to pioneers and strangers ; but
under the stimulus ot a liberal gift of one thou
sand dollars annually awarded by the State to the
person, firm or family planting the largest num
ber of the trees, these pampa pl.4)is have become
dotted with thousands of beautiful groves, of
which her citizens are justly proud. Many an
anecdote is told, illustrating the enthusiasm
which prevails among all classes engaged in this
service ; and many a noble oak, walnut or pine
bears the name of a child, maiden or lover, in
whose honor or memory it was planted, nursed
and guarded, till its stately branches have made
is observed in over a dozen States. Last April
Governor Foster of Ohio designated the 27th of
that month as a day for tree planting in that
State, and lie urges all citizens to assist in en
couraging its observance. He says, in his pro
clamation, that i.i this way alone can the loss
which the forests annually sustain in supplying
timber and fuel for the necessities of the people
be replaced. The records of the last census show
that in twenty-five or thirty years, the forests ol
United States will be destroyed, unless efforts are
uai'e to replace tl.em by tree planting.
,!Iere, in our little kingdom of Hawaii the same
process of forest extincti n is going on quite as
rapidly as in America, caused in part by the
demand lor fuel but more by cattle and other
animals destroying the young trees. Within
the memory ol white men the slopes of Hale
akala, on Maui, and of the great mountains on
Hawaii were densely wooded to within a mile or
less from the shore. Now portions of them are
denuded from the sea to the summit. It is said
that the great wall in Komi, Hawaii, built by
Kaiuehaineha I. ti, keep in the cattle given to
him by Vancouver, ran close along the edge of
the dense woods. Now the forest line is tuil'-s
ab ive it. The same is the case on all the island,
while on the Kohala mou-tains scarcely any trees
Why should not Hawaii establish her Arbor
Dai her La Kar.u Laau proclaimed by the
King, to be a day devoted to this object through
out the group ? We have had two notable ex
amples of ti'e-platinng set by royalty, which may
a ppropi iatel v be recalled at thii time. When
ti e young King Kauikeouli met with his chiefs
to consult about building the Kawaiahao Church
in 1S3G, the (.hiefoss Kinau, mother of Kings
Kamehun.eha III anJ IV., planted a tree on the
land set apart for tM church, and others followed i
her example. To bTwre the one planted by ber I
was only a common hau Tfe ; but it was planted, j
watered, and nursed by quK?ly bands and to ,
this day is known as " Kinau 'ree." Again, j
soon after His pre-ent MajestyKing Kalakaua I
ascended the throne, in 1874. we remember ;
seeing him climbing up Punchbowl IlrJJ on many j
an afternoon, or eai ly morning, accomped by ,
bis soldier-boys, carrying boxes of young ty ,
roba, inga, samang, and other trees, and rlarpro'
them in the summit bowl of this noted c V
Stronger, have vou ever noticed t!.e crove that is
tuw j;ro.wing and t-prenditi;; its hra:;ehcs over the
or . treeless hill back of Honolulu? Remember
that to the Kinj; himself belongs the credit of
planting, watering, and nursing the first young
grove on it, that in iy sjtne day spread so as to
clothe the wh le of Punchbowl Hill with a green
mantle of Ijvely shade-trees.
It is well sometimes to follow the example of
old-r countries ; and it will not be beneath the
dignity of our (i.ivernment to establish an Arbor
Day for - H iwaii say November 2 ur U1 ti e
commenceaient of our annual wet season. Let
it be done by Leg!s!ative authority or Royal Pro
clamation, and a reward of some kiDd be given to
the man, firm, or family that annually plants
the largest number of trees. It will be better to
spend a thousand dollars a year in such a way, if
it accomplish the good desired, than m trying
some more expensive, but less practical, method
of doin the same thin-;. Something must be
done here, us in America, or we sh'l soon have
only treeless lulls aud mountains confronting us,
with the difficulties and evils accompanying such
a situation, bearing heavily on the agricultural
industry of the country, and through it on every
other industry. This method has the advantage
of having been tried with great success elsewhere,
and it may prove so here. It is surprising to
read of the number of trees planted in Nebraska
during the past sixteen years by voluntary effort.
One statement puts it at over ten millions, which
is not at all improbable.
.The allusion to the plauting of trees in Kawaia
hao churchyard recalls thet ff rts of Mrs. Clarissa
Armstrong, to whom more than to any other
person is due ti.e credit of planting the stately
uljarob trees that now shade thcs3 premises.
This lady, with her own hands, assisted by some
old native women, planted nearly all the older
trees that surround ilittt church, and for M'Veral
years Carefully watered their or.iwth while they
were v iuiy. lhis was some twentv-Dve years
ago ; and as lorijj ns tins heautitul grove lasts, u
.vill stand as a monument to her name.
Another name should not he forgotten in con
neel i"ii with the numerous algarohas now seen
on trie Kiilaokahiia 1 l.im. between Kawuiahao
Chore. i and Judge M'CullyV residence and ti'iit
is Captain Luce's, who in the fiities. when Road
Supervisor for Oahu, used to fill his pockets with
the seeds of this tree, and plant them along the
road-side in his official tours through the Ivona
district and around O.ihu. Thousands, if n.t
tens of thousands, of these trees owe their origin
to his forethought and labor.
lhrse instances will r-how what individual c;
forts have accomplished, and i' One or two can
do so much, what may not a thousand persons
accomplish, throughout our group, when the en
thusiasm of a national festal dav encouraged by
royal example, spurs their labor and points to a
future reward ? II. M. W.

The House yesterday ptisseJ the item
in the Appropriation Hill, " Subsidy
to oce:iii steamship lines," which, in
accordance with the reeomnieinlatinn f
the committee to which it was referivd, was
passed at the amount proposed by the
Government, $."0,000. The Government
nre not tied down to any particular com
pany in making use of the means thus
placed at their disposal for subsidies, but
we may assume that the other recommend
ations made by the committee will be ac
cepted as a guide iu this matter. Among
these was one that " the through line from
San Francisco to Xew Zealand and Aus
tralia should continue to leceive the sup
port of the Government. We have hailed
with the greatest delight the establishment
of a new line, feeling sure that there has for
some time past been ample trade to sup
port a regular line of steamers in addition
to that which the enterprise of the colonies
has enabled us to enjoy. But we are not
disposed, as some are, to say that the old
line has no claim on us, and is of but small
value. Every business man knows what
advantage has been reaped from having
these steamers regularly t ailing here. The
communication with the colonies is also
worth something to us. The trade iu that
direction may be small, but a considerable
proportion of the tourists who spend their
money on the Islands come from that direc
tion, and these and others are induced to
visit us because of the facility of doing so
whilst cn route to other countries. That
these steamers spend no money here is also
not true. The two American boats coal
here regularly, and they all take supplies
fiom here, ami would take more than they
do if there were sullieieiiL enter;. rise in the
country to provide the necessaries of life at
moderate prices. If the Oceanic S.S. Com
pany's new line proves to be till that we
hope of it, that company will probably be
entitled to a larger subsi ly than the Mail
line, but that is no reason w hy we .should
wholly cut oil the payment we have been
accustomed to make to a line that has been
of vital importance to our commercial in
terest and a great advantage to passonoc. tt.
Taking this view we nevertheless cordi
ally agree with the committee of the Legis
lature, that we should have in return for
the subsidy something more definite and
certain in the way of accommodation to
the public. The stipulation that, the
steamers should spend at least six hours of
daylight in the port is one that ought
always to have been insisted upon. As
we understand it, it is the fault not of
the company but of former Ministries that
such a stipulation, which formed part of
the original contract with the P.M. S.S.
Company, has not been maintained in
force all the time. Ministers, though con
tinuing to give the sti'isidy, declined to
enter into a new contract when the first
expired, intending apparently to drop the
subsidy altogether on short notice. As the
Government would not be bound they
could not bind the steamers, and the latter
have come in and gone out as they liked
not, however, without a certain amount of
voluntary regard for the convenience of
business men and passengers. The com
munity has suffered in consequence of this
fad of some Minister, and it is high time
that the old arrangem nts were reinforced.
This the committee recommended and the
House approved, ami we understand that
the company wi 1 1 be quite ready to agree
