The Condition of Hawaii,
THE OPINION OF GOVERNOR WELLS.
A gentleman living in Honolulu
received by the last mail a letter
' from Ex-Governor Wells of "Wash
ington, D. C, who visited this King-
1 dom about two years ago and was
highly pleased with all he saw. The
Governor says " 1 keep myself pos
ted on the public affairs in the is
lands and very much regret that they
arc hi such a deplorable state. Jt
must affect the prospects of the
treaty and will surely mar, if not
fatally injure, the hopes now in
dulged in of its being continued.
The question which ought to exer
cise your minds is, How is it to be
remedied? I am glad to see that you
have such a splendid line of new
steamers which will revolutionize
communication between San Fran
cisco and the islands."
AUSTRALIA AND ANNEXATION.
The sentiment iu favor of independ
ent action on the part of Australia
in regard to the annexation of vari
ous islands in the South Pacific is
very strong, and is apparently gath
ering strength daily. France is
shipping its convicts to penal settle
ments adjacent thereto, and Australia
having rid itself of the British convict
system, docs not propose to become
a' receptacle for the overflow of
French prisons. Australian opinion
on this point is not to be trifled with.
The newspaper press unanimously
condemns Earl Derby's dispatch,
and in the Victorian Parliament, in
Melbourne, Prime Minister Service
declared that Lord Derby had failed
to appreciate the danger and that
the colonies themselves must devise
means for its prevention. A confer
ence of the representatives of the
various colonies Avill be held in
Sydney, N. S. W., in the latter part
of November, at which the subject
will be discussed. We predict that
the colonies will carry their point,
and that the imperial government
will find an excuse for going back
upon itself. S. F. Evening I'o t.
(Opinion of the S. F. Chronicle.)
Much space has been wasted in
Eastern newspapers in the discussion
of the annexation of Hawaii by Eu
ropean Governments. This has been
one of the main arguments of those
who advocated reciprocity, although
a treaty, made some years since by
Great Britain and France and sub-
sequcntly subscribed to by the
United States, guaranteed to the Ila
waiians their independence. Re
cently the Australians have been
agitating the annexation of New
Guinea by the British. This and
the loose talk of American recipro
city advocates has induced the Ha-
wanans to take a peculiar step. J.nc
Prime Minister, Giuson, has issued
a protest to the European Powers,
dccluring that the Ilawaiians have a
strong loyc for their Government,
and that this sentiment of nationality
is also shared by other Polynesian
people. Thus, he claims that to an
nex any of the lurger islands of the
Pacific would be to stamp out this
sentiment of nationality, inflicting
cruel wrong upon the islanders.
There is nothing faulty in logic or
facts in this protest. The rage for
colonizing semibarbarous countries,
which now seems to possess the
French, is not to be commended.
Wc fancy that no European Power
would give much for the possession
of Hawaii, even with its lepers thrown
in, and we arc certain that the Uni
ted States would find it very costly
as a gift. What makes the protest
a curiosity is that at the same time
it was secretly sent out to Europe, a
schooner was fitted up by the Go
vernment ostensibly to gathor in
laborers from the South Sea Islands,
but really to make overtures to them
to join the Hawaiian kingdom. This
ex-Missionary Gibson has a vaulting
. ambition. lie sees in fancy a great
Polynesian empire, with Kai.akaua
at its head, but with himself as the
real ruler. His genius is cramped
by the narrow limits of Hawaii, and
while he protests to Europe against
the lust for annexation, he is secret
ly negotiating to destroy these is
land nationalities for which he pro
fesses so tender a regard. The
scheme shows considerable ingenuity
and, perhaps, might lead to success,
were not the Hawaiian kingdom so
puny and contemptible. As it is,
