THE PRESIDENT'S MES
SAGE. The following extract from the
President's Message wn9 issued as
an Extra, on Saturday, by the P.
THE HAWAIIAN KINGDOM.
At the recent Coronation of his
"Majesty King Kalakaua this Go
vernment wus represented botli dip
lomatically and by the formal visit
of a vessel of war. The question of
terminating or modifying the exist
ing Reciprocity Treaty with Hawaii
is now before Congress. I am con
vinced that the charges of abuse and
frauds under that treaty have been
exaggerated. I renew tho sugges
tion of last year's message that the
treaty be modified wherever its pro
vision have proven onerous to legiti
mate trade between the two coun
tries. I am not disposed to favor
the entire cessation of treaty rela
tions, which have fostered good will
between the countries and contri
buted toward the equality of Hawaii
in the family of nations.
Is tho ciy of Road-Supervisor Hart,
when asked why he docs not repair
this or that street, and make it pas
sable, at least for foot passengers.
Our roads and sidewalks are a dis
grace to a city which has now such
pretentions as are aimed at by the
powers of Honolulu. Wherever any
citizen walks there is nothing but
mud and slush, mixed with street
scrapings that are seldom, if ever,
removed, and which gradually accu
mulate at the sides of the streets,
choking Avhat should be the gutters
and making them higher than the
center of the road. If there be "no
money" availuble for thorough re
pairs, could not prisoners be utilized
to clear the gutters and throw the
mud of the gutters into the middle
of the streets ; this might prove of
some little benefit. Ask Waikiki
residents what they think of tho
road beyond Thomas' Square, and
they will tell jrou that it is unsafe,
because they cannot see where the
holes are owing to the depth of mud
nnd slush. Why should there be
"no money" for repairing the
bridges recently destroyed on Ha
waii, and for repairing our streets?
" We flaunt our gay feathers of
meaningless uniforms before the
mocking- eyes of real power and
prosperity," we send our envoys
and annexationists abroad, "we strut
like mountebanks in trappings that
do not belong to us." And Why?
Because "We (Tho Premier) love
pomp." Whilst we do this there
Jl remains, for the necessary improve
ments of the Kingdom, "no money."
THE Y. M. C. A.
Held its regular monthly meeting on
Thursday evening, the attendance
being small in conscqucnco of the
usual notice of the meeting not hav
ing been made in the Bulletin. Mr.
C. M. Cooke, Vice-President, was in
The Building Committee reported
that the work of the alterations had
been let to Mr. Lucas for 8G45, but
that be had been dilatory with the
-work since the Fair ; ho had however
promised to put on a gang of men
and finish it. The new room was
badly needed as there were now
three classes a week, and they dis
turbed people who came to read.
The gas pipes would bo a little extra
expense. Furniture bills of 8300
had been paid and $450 was left,
from the Fair, for the building.
There was 8250 in hand on the origi
nal building fund, besides some out
standing pledges, nnd it was antici
pated that tho Building Committee
would present their accounts at the
next meeting and turn over some
money to the Treasurer.
The question of payment of taxes
was raised. The premises had been
valued at ' ' ,000 and the amount
of taxes (i u was $120. It was
thought that the institution should
be exempt, as Jt was of an educa-
tional character, classes being held
for the purposo of giving instruc
tion. On motion of Rev. A. Forbes,
"the cordial thanks of tho associa
tion were rendered to all tho ladies
and others who assisted so earnestly
in getting up tho Fair." The Secre
tary was instructed to communicate
the lesolution to each lady who had
Mr. J. B. Atherton reported that
ho had hcaid nothing further about
a general sccletaiy. He advocated
the payment of a larger salary than
had been proposed, in order to seem e
a good man who would build up the
institution so that it would be able to
take care of itself. There was a
vast difference in Secretaries nnd ho
i ef erred to Mr. McCoy of San Fran
cisco as being an enthusiast as well
as a thorough business man.
A collection was made and tho
meeting closed with prayer.
THE AUSTRALIAN CONFERENCE.
Sydney, Dec. 6th. A resolution
adopted by the conference of dele
gates of the Australian Legislature,
called to consider tho question of
the annexation of Now Hebrides,
New Guinea and other South Sea Is
lands to Australia, declares it the
unanimous belief of the Conference
that any further annexations of Pa
cific regions south of the equator by
foreign powers would bo highly in
jurious to the interests, safety and
well-being of Australia and the Bri
tish Empire. The Conference leaves
to England the initialise of action,
confidently believing she will prompt
ly adopt the wishes of the Confer
ence and take the most effectual
measures to secure the safety and
contentment of Australia by incor
porating so much of New Guinea
and adjacent islands as is not claimed
by Holland. The Conference urges
Eugland to make a definite arrange
ment with France and thereby pre
vent the islands being made Btibject
to foreign dominion, and to seize the
first opportunity of negotiating with
France for tho purpose of obtaining
control of the New Hebrides in the
interest of Australia. The colonies
offer to bear a fair share of the cost
of those undertakings. The Con
ference protests in the strongest
manner against France sending cri
minals to the islands of the Pacific,
and urges England to to make seri.
ous l-epresontations and do her ut
most to prevent a practice which is
disastrous to the interest of Austra
lia. The Conference is now discus
sing the Constitution and func tions
of the Federal council to deal with
interests common to the whole of
Australia, and a complete arrange
ment is expected.
