MONDAY, Jt'IA' , 1882.
STEAMS R SUBSIDY.
The mutter of subsidy to foreign
HlCiiiuorH, alluded to in our lust issue
1i' si correspondent, is one of public
interest. The item of 850,000
plaecd in tliu Appropriation Hill by
the Government has been referred
t a hpucinl committee. The com
mittee law not yet reported to the
Legislature. Wlmt the committee
will recommend or what will be the
fniaid actio of the House, remains to
liu seen. Hitherto the Pacific Mail
Company's steamers have been suli
sidised by voles of past Legislatures',
and they arc the only steamers that
have had any semblance of a claim,
because t!vy are the only ones that
have given us any regular connec
tion with the outer world. But we
are now to have, a rival line, of
which the Suez is the pioneer vessel.
If wc arc to continue subsidising
ocean steamers and it appears to
be taken for granted that wc must
the question to bettlo is this, which
of the two lines has the better claim
to recognition from our Govern
ment ? or, in other words, which of
.the two Mines is likely to be of the
greater service to this country ?
The Oceania Company's line can
scarcely ho said to be established yet ;
it lias simply been inaugurated.
.. For some time t6 cOmo this Company
will have to rely on chartered
steamers, while their own vessels
designed and constructed specially
for this route are being built. It
may bo sajd in favor of this Com
pany that it is somewhat intimately
connected with tlieso islands, "in
asmuch as its projectors. Mr.
Sprockets, has large interests
here, and will be likely to Bparc
neither money nor exertion to render
the lino ill every way conceivable
adequate to our requirements. Tlic
Pacific Mail Company, it is gene
rally conceded, havo not done much
for us in the past, particularly in the
way of passenger accommodation.
Hut their steamers have carried our
mails and linve been of undoubted
service in other ways, notwithstnnd
r ing many short-comings. More
over, it should be borne in mind
that it is the intention of this Comp
any sho.'tly to put on two new steam
ers, to ply between Snn Francisco
.and Honolulu, when wo shall in all
'probability have better value for our
. . money than hitlioi to. It should also
be remembered that the Pacific Mail
Company's steamers connect us with
the Australian Colonies as well as
with the United States. It is true
that there is not much business done
between this country and Australia.
Still, as a small and independent
country, we ought to have as much
connection with the outside world
as possible. Perhaps, in view of all
considerations, it would be well to
continue the existing arrangement
for the present, until the new steam
ers of the both companies arc put
7 on. I hen wc shall be in u position
to judge which arc the fastest and
bent boats, and subsidi&o accord-

His Ex. tub Minister of Interior
stated that ho was aware of the fact

charges were levied on these peoplo,
but that was according to the rliles
