MORE RUADS THAN ONE.
December is very near nt lmnd
and with it comes a session of Con
gress. That feebMon will probably
decide the fate of our treaty. "We
cin hardly do anything more than
has been done to secure- its contin
uance. Every exertion has been
made by all parties. All we can do
is to keep up our exertions and not
to let them slacken.
Yet, it may happen that we shall
lose the treaty. What sort of a
position shall we be in then? What
resources have we to fall back on ?
"Wc have alrcacjy pointed out the
possibility of a new market in Japan
for our sugars. Why shouldn't we
have something else besides sugar,
and rice to sell? Where are the
wonderful amounts of fibres of
which so many specimens were sent
to the Paris, and London exhibi
tions and received such notice from
commercial magnates there? Where
is our fruit export? It seems to us
that we need not despair if the
worst comes to the worst, and if one
resource fails us, fall back on
Many 3 ears ago Sir Stamford Raf
fles founded the free port of Singa
pore on a hitherto unproducticv
island. By his judicious policy
added to its natural advantages of
position it has grown to be one of
the weuthiest and most important
ports m the East. We, in Hawaii,
have as great natural advantages as
Singapore, if not greater. The only
thing wanting is the judicious policy
of a Sir Stamford Raffles. We are
here in the middle of the broad
Parific right in the track of the ever
increasing trade between America
and Australia. We have every op
portunity of becoming the depot of
trade between the coast and Japan,
China, and Manilla. It is in our
hands to become n great com
mercial entrepot for all trade
crossing the Paeiiic if we only exert
ourselves. When the Panama Ca
nal is opened judicious management
will make us a way-station if not a
transfer-station on nil lines between
England and the Continent of Eu
rope on the one hand, and San
Francisco, Japan, and China on the
other. As steamer-travel grows we
shall inevitably be a coaling station
f n all lines and all voyages on the
Pacific. With sin-h important Com
mjrci.tl destinies before us we need
the judicious mercantile policy of a
Sir Stamford Rallies. Where is he ?
ADMIRABLE AND CONTEMPTIBLE.
"The Gazette and the Press owe
you one, contemptible contemporary.
Go 6tudy the fable of the bat. It
fought for the beast by day and for
the birds by night in the cowardly,
half heaited, beliind-the-fence fash
ion it best understood. The gods
looked on and learned to loathe it.
So they transformed it into an un
canny thing, half beast, half bird,
and doomed it to fly and feed chiefly
"by twilight. Go to the bat, poor,
foolish Bulletin, and study there
the churactcr that has made you a
by-word and a reproach among the
men wdio have opinions and the
courageous honesty to uphold them."
