The method of granting charters
in this country deserves more con
sideration than it generally receives.
The present obsolete system of ap
plying to the Privy Council, and
awaiting the w ill of the government
of the clay, is more fitted for the
days of Noali than for the present
days of a nineteenth century king
dom that prides itself upon its com
mercial progress and advancement.
That great partiality has been shown
is evinced by the constaut shelving
of the application made on behalf of
the Gazette to make room for more
recent applications. An example of
this was again given on Thursday,
when charters were granted to the
Puuloa Ranch Co., to AVilder's Steam
Shipping Co. and others. Wc do
not say that these charters should
have been refused, but we do say
that the Gazette charter should .not
be persistently withheld from the
consideration of the Privy Council.
"We hope that, at the next session of
the Legislature, tfie recent sugges
tions of the government organ will be
adopted, and that an act will be
passed enabling any body of persons
to incorporate themselves, at any
tinic, by complying with certain
'necessary regulations, without the
delay involved by the present obso
lete method, and without the neces
sity of "persuading."
"RECOLLECTIONS OF AN ORIENTAL
Mr. James Bryce, M. P., having
been introduced to the audience at
the Y. M. C. A, on Thursday even
ing, said that he merely proposed to
give an informal conversation of his
recollections of a few journeys to
tho cast. Honolulu was ho far west
from England, that it seemed to be
almost east again, and ho was sur
prised to find here all the civilization
to which he had been accustomed in
Europe, and the contrast between
Hawaiian and European institutions
was very slight. The eastern coun
tries of Europe always stand the
same, there is no change from one
century to another; those ideas
formed in our childhood, from books
we read relating to the east, remain
unchanged, and wo almost expect to
see biblical characters step out into
tho streets. The ox still treads on
the corn, which is spread out on a
2arge iloor, the wind curries away
Ihe chaff and tho wheat is left.
People living in the town, sit on the
roof tops in tho evening, and there
are the same ideas, as of old, of
'"keeping within their gates."
In Europe tho only dangers now.
when traveling, arc from railway ac
oidents; in thu east, bands of thieves
infest the roads. Here, yon have no
unjust judges; there, if involved in j
litigation, you must bribe the judge,
and are at once asked what you will
give. In the Turkish empire, a most
striking feature is tho social position,
and the distinction that prevails be
tween different races. You will
find four or five nations occupying
the same soil, governed by the same
laws and paying the same taxes, yet
they are all distinct and have noth
ing to do with one another. The
reason why they arc so distinct, you
can haully understand here, there is
no friendship, no intercommunica
tion and no intermarriage. Here,
the Chinese people are, I believe,
distinct from the other races, but
there is a reason for this, because
they propose to return to their homes.
Mohammedanism keeps the cast in a
state of inaction, and there is a spirit
of self-conceit on the Mohammedan
population. They think themselves
superior to any infidel. They say
that Christians are a little superior
to fire worshippers and idolaters.
They think civilization of no account,
they won't try to improve; in cases
of plagues they take no sanitary pre
cautions, believing that they must
The women are denied any rights,
but arc placed under the control of
their fathers and brothers. The best
women are those who arc least heard.
Nothing irritates more than to see
the way in which they are treated ;
their faces arc always covered, they
have no education, and, when travel
ling, they are huddled together iu a
corner of the stern of the ship, ex
posed to all kinds of weather. The
cities of the east arc generally very
quiet, there is nothing to do and
plenty of time to do it in. There
appears to be no business, as there
are no shops. All buying and selling
is done in bazaars. A bazaar is a
series of sheds and alleys roofed in ;
the dealers sit in them, and are
never anxious to trade. It takes
several hours to buy or sell anything
worth more than $3. (The lecturer
then gave an amusing account of an
attempt to purchase a carpet.)
In government, the only system
was an organized robbery. Tax
gatherers took a certain part of each
man's produce, and more if they
could get it, and different officials
exacted money under various pre
texts. There was no justice, and a
Turkish officer could rarely be found
who was not open to corruption.
People kept together by their church.
A Greek was a man who belonged to
the Greek Church, and an Armenian
belonged to the Armenian Church.
An Armenian bride was allowed to
speak only to her husband for a 3'ear
after her marriage, to her mother-in-law
for the next two years, and then
to her sisters for the next two years.
He had visited Mount Arrarat, which
was an extinct volcano ; there were
craterp and cones all around it, the
same as at Ilaleakala or Maui. It is
17,000 feet high, and stands in the
middle of a "large plain ? which is
2,400 feet above the sea level.
There is no fruit and but little water,
except what comes from the srfow..
Although all the animals were said
to have been turned loose on Arrarat,
there arc none to be seen but a few
insects and an occasional hare. The
Armenians believe the ark is on the
top of the mountain, surrounded by
a line cloud, and guarded byangels,
and that it is impossible for a man
to climb to the top of the lhountain.
There was a legend that a man had
tried to ascend' seven times but fell
asleep each time and, on the last,
dreamt that he had been rewarded,
lie awoke finding a piece of the ark
in his hand, and this piece was now
in the Museum so that the truth of
tho story was conclusive.
The lecturer then graphically des
cribed his own ascent of the mount
ain and the view, extending 300
miles in all directions, from the top.
Below him was the spot where the
garden of Eden was supposed to bo.
lie wus subsequently presented to
an Arch-Evangelist, at the head of a
body of monks, who refused to be
lieve that lje had made tho ascent.
He had himself found a piece of
wood at a height of 13,000 ft., above
the growth of any trees, and felt
justified in thinking it must be a
piece of gophir wood.
In reference to the government he
said that people, first going to
Turkoy, thought it would end in a
few weeks, after being there a few
weeks, they thought it would end in
a few months, and, after a few
months, they gave it a few years. If
there were any change Russia, and
Austria would probably secure part
of the Turkish empire, The lecturer
concluded by saying that the only
good work done in Turkey had been
effected by the missionaries.
On motion of Mr, P. C. Jones jr,
seconded by Mr T, II. Davies, a
hearty vote of thanks was accorded
to the lecturer.
