J. II. BltOWN,
Agent Board of
several years Mr. Gibson
has been posing as a friend of the
native, in opposition to what he has
chosen to term a' "white invader."
His colleagues in the Ministry are
both half whites. Mr. Bush is a
crafty, shrewd and daring schemer
of no mean ability. Mr. Kapena is
considered an amiable incompetent.
Mr. Gibson was born at sea, and be
lieves himself to be the scion of a
noble English family."
"The opposition press of the Is
lands have branded the existing Mi
nistry as incapable, profligate and
distinctly and swecpingly bad ; and
most of their direct charges have
nassed unchallenged. The chief
dread seems now to be that the
whites, having a minority of votes,
and being in no one thing thoroughly
united, will be unable to carry the
election next February, and that the
present Cabinet may continue in
power indefinitely. This would not
be if the gravity of the situation
were fully understood by the popu
lation. It is not understood and
cannot be until the next tax levy
shall be made, which, considering
the rate at which money has been
squandered during the present Ad
ministration, must inevitably be
The Examiner then states " that
the King had better choose for his
Cabinet four such men as Colonel
George Macfarlane for Minister of
Foreign Affairs, Mr. J. O. Carter
for Minister of the Interior or of
Finance, Mr. E. P. Adams for ei
ther of these positions, and Mr. F.
M. Hatch for Attorney-General.
These four men would harmonize all
interests the planters, the people,
the merchants and thc natives.
Another good Cabinet might be
made up of Dr. J. Mott Smith, now
special Hawaiian Commissioner at
Washington, and Messrs. Mark Rob
inson, B. G. Wilder and S. B. Dole.
But none of these gentlemen are at
all likely to accept office unless they
could be more sure of retaining their
positions long enough to formulate
and carry out a policy. All four
have large interests at stake, al
though only one is rich."
"A reasonable guarantee would
be required that their positions
should be secure to them for at least
two years. Unless some such move
ment is made the names suggested
being only among a large number of
equally available ones the interests
of every white man on theso islands
-will bcin jeopardy ; and among the
whites Americans outnumber all
other nationalities, with the excep
tion of Portuguese, who arc at pre
sent chiefly laborers and small trades
men." "The opinions expressed above are
not the opinions of the opposition
only, but are gleaned from conver
sations with the best meil on all the
islands. Good government on the
Islands is of importance to every
San Francisco merchant who deals
-with them. The Chinese question,
the leprosy question, the reciprocity
question, the monopoly question
need to be in safe hands in the
hands of men who will carry out in
the Sandwich Islands the principles
which the Examiner has always ad
vocated for Calif orniu."

also cooling and of great benefit. '
1 Tin: German laborers from the Ooka-
la plantation decided yesterday to re
turn to their work and leave to-day on
the Likclike. The cause of the trouble
was because one of their countrymen,
who was generally unpopular, had
sworn out a warraut against another
who wti3 consequently arrested, so all
refused to work. Thirty-three men
were tried before the local judge and
committed to jail until they should de
cide to work again but one day's reflec
tion in prison had the desired effect and
all ends happily. Thirteen men from
the same plantation are still in jail in
Hilo on a similar charge.

Dear Bulletin: It has been
rumored during the past week that
steps have been taken by the Hawa
iian Government to annex the islands
of the Pacific to this Kingdom, and
that Captain Tripp and Mr. Clarke
were instructed during their cruise
in the Julia to plant the Hawaiian
standard on certain islands. It is
further rumored that a declaration
has been seht from this Government
to Foreign " powers to the purport
that His Majesty King Kalakaua
proclaims his sovereignty over the
said islands and also protests against
their occupation by other nations.
Should such rumors be true, it is
difficult at first to conceive what
effect such a course would have, the
idea of this little Kingdom scttine:
itself up in opposition, so to speak",
to Foreign nations and the Austra
lian Colonies is preposterous and
absurd, the country would be pub
licly ridiculed and officially con
demned. The rumor oupht to be
unfounded because the foreign re
presentatives iu Honolulu have not
been informed or advised in any
way on the subject, but yet it is
positively stated that several meet
ings of the cabinet have been held
to discuss the question and that the
protests have been forwarded by
the mails that have recently left
for the Coast and the Colonies.
We publish tho above letter,
although the rumors are not definite,
hoping that it may produce an offi
cial reply and that if true, our first
intimation of the circumstnnces may
not bo received from abroad as was
the case in respect to Hjs Majesty's
proposed trip to Australia. Ed. D.
