MORE OF THE TREATY.
It vrc-re best to understand our attitude
towards the Hawaiian Islands. No amount
of maligning or of slander can, drown the
truth tint the Hawaiian reciprocity has
brought more trade and profit to San Fran
cisco than any other treaty ever did before
or since. Statistics of unquestionable authen
ticity prove this beyond a doubt. Prior to
1S76, the number of ships which were an
nually cleared from this port for the Ha
waiian Islands was 19; already in 1878 the
number rr se to 112. The past year nearly
200 clearances for the same destination prore
the growth of our trade. Clearances of
lumber craft from other porta will add no
less than forty more. There 13 no port south,
east or west of Stn Francisco that compares
with Honolulu in importance, and even
Portland, Oregon, with itt regular steamship
line, does not exceed this. The profit ac
cruing from this connection can be only
approximated, because our data embrace
merely the value of exports without taking
into consideration the expenditures neces
sary for forwarding freight, teaming, in
surance, fitting and provisioning vessels,
coal, repairs, wages and a hundred other
items which inure to our benefit, and are
directly attributable to the existence of that
treaty. The class of goods exported to the
Islands has steadily increased in quantity
and improved in quality with the ratio of
growing prosperity of the Islanders, until to
day the best class of fabrics, the higher
grades of manufactured goods, and many
articles of comfort and luxury form a large
portion of the export trade. By virtue of
the peculiar adaptability of the soil of the
Islands for the raising of sugar cane, all
other crops there have become quite insigni
ficant, and it is California upon which the
Hawaiians depend for their supply of bread
stuffs and feed. Even cattle, hegs and horses
are regularly exported from here, and visit
ing Honolulu an American can see but little
that strikes him as foreign. The houses,
great numbers of the people, the
shops, the ways -of business, all are
of the American type. Telephones con
nect every important place and plantation;
American newspapers make their daily ap
pearance ; conveyances of American man
ufacture traverse the roads and highways ;
American railroads steam across the Islands
and above all. American ships, under
American flags, lie at the Hawaiian moor
ings. If all this seems an inadequate
return for the treaty, and for the most part
fictitious (because if it were not for reci
procity the Hawaiian Islands would have no
trouble to find as good a market for their
sugar eisewhere), then let the facts be corfc
sidered that the populatitfVT uUnt
cons 1 i i stsofg , yo"nc.th ird loyal American
citizens, and that they constitute the most
important and wealthiest part of that
colony; that it is American thrift and
American enterprise which builded this
magnificent trade, so that its very pros
perity is now used as an argument against
the renewal. If every acre of the sugar
lands of the United States were under culti
vation, that would be insufficient to supply
one-half the sugar demand of fifty millions
of people. Our population is rapidly
increasing, and we must either expect larger
importations of sugar or else annex sugar
lands. Reciprocity treaties are compro
mise measures in this connection, and it
should be the policy of our government
rather to extend such treaties to other
nations than to discuss the possibility of an
abrogation of existing ones.
There need be nn anxiety that the Sand
wich Island sugar will ever come into such
competftion with our own sugar produce as
to make the latter unprofitable. For, in
the first place, the price of the island sugar
is entirely jegulated by Manilla quotations;
and secondly, the Islands have nearly
reached their maximum of production. The
planter at Hawaii naturally prefers to sell
his produce as near to his own door as pos
sible, in order to obviate risks and to expe
dite returns. There is but one port which
has representative buyers at the Islands,
and that is San Francisco. These sugar
buyers allow the Hawaiian planters for
their sugar Manilla rates. 2J cents rebate
of duty added ; for if San Francisco were
buying sugar at Manilla, it would have to
pay that much duty, and since under the
treaty Hawaiian sug-tr is free, the amount
of the duty goes to the benefit of the
planter. Under (nis system of encourage
ment, nearly every avail -hie acre nearly
everv odd natch of soil ht the Hawaiian
Islands has been brought into requisition,
and there is at present I ttle sugar land to be
found there which is not in cultivation
Indeed, it is the opinion of some experts that
the maximum production has actually been
reached, and that henceforth it will be grad
ually diminishing, until it reaches some set
tled average. Already the soil shows signs
of exhaustion, and feltilizers are in good de
mand at the Islands. The coming crops will
be thrown frm rattoons, the growth from tha
seed proving too exhaustive for the soil.
To the impartial there is nothing in all
this which can be construed as a monopoly.
The Islanders, though well treated by our
buyers, would not object to Eastern or any
other refiners bidding for thir crops. San
Francisco would be glad to have one or
more additional refineries upon this coast;
the grocers would certainly encourage any
enterprise in that direction. Why this per
petual peevish cry of monopoly? Can it be
possible that our little prosperity has caused
this fretful jealousy among the sister States?
Provincial as we are, we are more generous.
We are not jealous of New York, or Boston,
or Chicago because of their superior advant
ages. We try in our smalT way to improve
our opportunities, and are glad if others im
prove theirs. It is possibfe that some stray
number of a vilhf'ying newspaper has reach
ed the East, and it is possible that there
they give attention to what the Chronicle
says? Californians are foolishly prone to
boast of their superiority over others. If
they ever get to be foolish enough to boast
of such things as the vilest slanderer, or the
most unscrupulous liar, or the most mer
cenary newspaper in the world, they will be
likely to brings the ChroniHe into notice,
and demand that its proud pre-eminence be
conceded. S. F. Wasp.
Tlirongh'iniinito Nature there ia found
A vat dependence, like a chain
Whose admantine links retain
Their power while interbouad :
The passion and the might of Lreath,
Tha straggle of the strong and weak,
The instinct of the beast to seek
Life in another's death :
The yearning of the human mind.
Which aoars beyond its prisaa-p.laca ,
To azure heights of time and space
And dart's the nndivined :
Saulight. and air, and sobtleorce.
And each sky-wonder that appears,
The circling movement of the spheres,
The earth's ethereal coarse
All are dependent, living links
Of one harmonious world of law.
Whose calm progression fills with awe
The soul that feels and thinks.
O. E. Moxtooitert.
Yon hold my hands, and look into my eyes.
And dream you read my soul's depths with your
Aa consonant chords pulse vibrant to one tone ;
Yet would we both be smitten with surprise
If each could tread the labyrinth that lie
In solitude the other haunts alone,
You sure would deem you trod a land Unknown,
-And I would break the silence with my cries.
And since one soul cannot gauge the recesses.
Another in its hidden mazes keeps,
How glad a thing that neither.ever guesses
Half the vague doubts that stir the spirit deeps,
Or ever fathoms all the bliss that blesses,
Or circumscribes the woes o'er which it weeps.

American Inventions in Military Arms.
The Americans are superior to all the
world in genius for mechanical invention
and application, but somehow, says a Cin
cinatti paper they are fettered so that they
do not reap the just fruits. Most of the
modern improvements in military arms are
original to Americans in successive applica
tion. Of these are the revolver.the breech
loader, the magazine rifle for infantry and
calvary, the metallic cartridge, the machine
cannon of all sorts, beginning with the Gat
ling gun, of which the French mitrailleuse
is only a slight adaptation, and running 1 1
large revolving cannon, the invention of the
process of graduating the explosion of large
grained cannon powder, whereby a follow
ing pressure is got, with great increase of
velocity of the shot, and less strain of the
gun, the making of infantry arms by
machinery with interchangeable parts all
these are American.
The armored ship was first made in
America, likewise the revolving turret. In
the American war was the first application
of torpedoes to coast defence. A remark
able example of the obstruction of one sort
or another which denrives the rnuntrv nf thw
I cpr irv
people is in the fact that in nearly all these
improvements our army was the last to
adopt them. American magazines and
machine guns are used by all armies but
ours. The multiplication of the force of an
infantry line by the breechloading rifle was
fully known before our civil war, and dur
ing the war, and there were shops that
could have turned them out with great
rapidity, but the ordnance chiefs resisted
Rodman, an officer in the Ordnance Bu
reau, was the inventor of the "giant powder."
and after the war was continuing his ex
periment with that and with cannon, when
he was ordered to other service. The Brit
ish took this up, and now claim to be the in
ventors of this improvement. Dr. Wood
bridge began in 1850, to try to get a recog
nition of his invention for making a gun of
steel wire, soldered by melted bronze, but
has only just now succeded in having it ac
cepted for trial. Aad now the British are
experimenting with his invention to escape
the enormous cost of the wrought iron guns.
Hall invented the system of making a cara
bine with interchangeable parts, and it was
perfected in the Harper's Ferry armory in
1815, but was allowed to be abandoned, and
many years after was reinvented and intro
duced by the department at Springfield.
The percussion cap was in general use in
game guns twenty years before it was intro
duced in the army. The arms of part of the
army in the war on Mexico in 1846 were flint
lock. All the world has armored ships ex
cept the United States, v. here they were in
vented. While our mechanics furnish military
engines in all the world, we have made
no progress in cannon or defensive fortifica
tions in a hundred years. The most mons
trous instance of this obstruction "vus when
the civil war broke out, and agents were
sent to buy the refuse of the markets of all
Europe, instead of allowing our private
shops to make them( which could have
turned out a musket like the Springfield,
in everything save the interchangeableness
of the parts, faster than we got these refuse
guns from Europe.
American shops could have supplied our
troops with breechloading rifles by the
second year of the war, if permitted. By that
time they could have supplied half the army
with repeating rifles.They were not permitted
The military class kept the army from any
advantage from the mechanical genius and
resourses of the Northern people, and put
the North on a level with the Confederacy,
which had almost no mechanical resources.
The same obstruction still exists, and in
case of a war with a foreign naval power
would subject our nation to humiliation.
If all this has been while the nation has
confided military affairs to a professional
class. hw much worse could it be if they
had been left to Tun themselves. Manu
"Remember, young man," said Uncle
Mose, 'dat de best frien yer's got on dis
earth is a better frien' ter himself den he is
A recently suspended foreign minister,
while passing through London on his way
to this country, registered himself at Boyles
American agency as "Col. , Amer
ican Minister, in rought for home."
A candidate, defeated at the recent elec
tion, made his first appearance upon the
streets yestorday. and his countenarce look
ed so mournful that fifteen undertakers tried
to engage him to drive a hearse.
A more repulsive or disgusting being does
not exist than a journalist who considers it
legitimate to ransack his neighbor s closet
and parade all the dirty linen he can find
there before the public eye. To such a mn
notning is sacred irom publication it it will
sell.' Of course it will sell, for the same
reason that indecent pictures sell faster thin
works of pure art; it will sell, even as ardent
spirits command a more active market than
the revised edition of the New Testament.
But because there is a quick sale and a de
sirable profit in this sort of blackmail jour-'
nalism, is not a justification for its publica
tion. If its only effect is the demoralization
tnd corruption of public tasts and feeling,
then it is not legitimate, but inhuman jour
nalism. The keyhole spy, the eavesdropper,
the petty mailer, the local black-lister and
scandal-monger who prints all the bad smells
his inquisitive nose catches on the sidewalk,
is not an enterprising journalist nor editor in
any legitimate understanding of the word;
he Is only a dirty scavenger who decks out
a dinner table lor the public with the filthy
collections of his calling; he is a reckless
public enemy, an indefatigable incendiary of
the basest and vilest sort. Read the police
reports of certain sorts of city papers; they
are elaborately prepared and bristle with
sarcasm and low wit, discharged at the
lowest, most forlorn, friendless, feeble and
needless of Gods creatures of both sexes.
How a human being with a spark of soul
can write dy after day in a police court,
shooting satire and ridicule at some
wretched inebriated woman or pauperized
man, whose ignorance, weakness and wretch
edness call for solemn reflections rather than
for jeers and ridicule, is outside of our com
prehension; and yet it is this sort of brutal
stuff that is widely relished and called
' spicy" by a great many people, who are
never so happy as when somebody else is
miserable. Journalism may be a public
blessing, but journalism whose enterprise
consists in printing the irreponsible stench
and smut of the sidewalk is a curse; it is as
lively as a snake and as stupid as sin.
A Feaefdl Storm. A Swiss paper de
scribes the fearful storm which wrought such
havoc in the Grindelwald on October 27th.
It began to blow at 4 o'clock in the morning
and continued for twenty-four hours with
terrific violence. Its like'was never before
experienced. The heaviest roof stones were
blown off like chips. Lumps of rock weigh
incr 100 pounds were sent spinning through
the air like cannon balls in battle. Inside
the houses there were no safety, outside no
body could live. Windows were blown in
roofs carried away and many families fled in
terror to their cellars. In the atternoon a
few brave men, at the risk of their lives,
went on the roofs and tried to repair damages.
But it was impossible to do anything. As
fast as they replaced the stones they were
dislodged and several of the men thrown to
the erround. At nigbt the cale rajjed still
more fiercely and a tremendous rainfall
A man told his friend that he had just
joined the army. What regiment?" his
friend asked. "Oh, I don't rtean that. I
mean the army of the Lord." Ah ! what
church?" "The Baptists." ''Why that's
not the army it's the navy."
