AND THE AUSTRALIAN
The following is an extract from
a lengthy address, published in the
JV. Z, Jlcrald, which was delivered
by Hon. F. Whitakcr, hilo Premier
of New Zealand.
"Now, a curious incident occurred
with regard to the Sandwich Islands,
or what has been called the Hawaiian
monarchy. A gentleman of the
name of Audley Cootc, who is Con
sul in Tasmania for the Hawaiian
monarchy, was instructed by his
Government to present a protest
against the proceedings of any Go
vernment or colony in attempting to
deal with the islands of the South
Pacific. I will not read the whole
of the protest that would not be
worth while but I will read the
commencement of it: "Whereas
His Hawaiian Majesty's Government
being informed that certain sovereign
and colonial Stales propose to annex
various islands and archipelagoes of
Polynesia, does heieby solemnly
protest against such projects of an
nexation, as unjust to a simple and
ignorant people, and subversne, in
their case, of those conditions for
favourable national development,
which have been so happily accorded
to the Hawaiian nation." Now, tiiis
is a most extraordinary document.
Mr. Coole came personally to Syd
ney for the purpose of pressing the
views put forward in i(, and to be
ready in case any information should
be required. With regard to the
statement here made that the people
of these Polynesian Islands arc
"simple anil ignorant," their simpli
city appears to consist in murdering
anil eating people, or committing
any other "atrocity that happens to
take their fancy. With regard to
their "national development," it is
certainly a curious fact that, whereas
sixty years ago, the population of
the Sandwich Islands, was estimated
at 230,000, ten years ago it had
decreased to 10,000, and is, at the
present time, probably not more than
25,000, so that the "development"
appears to be tending towards ex
tinction. But the fact of the mailer
is this, although the Government of
the Sandwich Islands is carried on
nominally by a native King and Par
liament His Majesty dates his pro
test from Iolani Palace, Honolulu
the real Government is carried on in
the interests of sugar speculator in
the United States. What is called a
reciprocity treaty exists between the
Sandwich Islands and America, by
which sugar from Hawaii is admitted
free of duty into the United States,
and certain articles are admitted free
on the other side. J I happens with
regard to these islands, as I have
shown, that the population is gra
dually decreasing, and no doubt in
the course of another generation or
two it will be all but extinct. Its
decrease has been going on very ra
pidly, a curious commentary on the
statement made in the protest that
the llawniians desire to see in the
other islands of Polynesia "those
conditions for favourable national
development which have been so
happily accorded to the Hawaiian
nation!" The piolest, it is quite
clear, could have no possible weight.
But it may be mentioned that
although the protest takes the high
ground of "national development,"
Mr. Audley Oooto did not forget a
. little business of his own when in
Sydney, by attempting lo bring be
fore the Conference a scheme for
duplicating the cable to Europe,
. thereby combining his great political
.functions with bis privato interests.
While protesting against anything
being done lo retard the national
development of the Polynesians, ho
was at the same time endeavouring
to advance his own interest by so
curing the support of the Convention
for liia scheme for tlio duplication of

Editor Bi'u.v.tix: The Adver
tiser deprecates that Mr. Ashford
should have rushed into print con
cerning the question of leprosy in
the public schools, and says that
"by enquiry at llie olllce of the
Board of Health in litis matter, he
would have been assured that he had
been listening to a malicious inven
tion." No doubt the President of the
Board of Health would have "as
sured" him I The recent records of
our Boards show that the individual
members have little or nothing lo
say in any matters of public inter
est; and, so long as the press re
mains silent on the leprosy question,
so long will lepers enjoy immunity
from segregation laws. So long as
the public sentiment will be soothed
or stilled by the specious theories or
forbidding frowns of the President
of the Board of Health, so long may
we be "assured" that leprosy will
stalk unbridled in our midst. These
arc facts that all the sophistry of
the "independent" organ cannot
erase from the public mind.
The passive inaction of Mr. Cleg
horn, the only member of the Board
of Health, who is not a member of
the Cabinet, deserves the severest
censure, the more so from his rela
tionship to His Majesty which alone
should make him deeply interested
in the welfare of Ilawaiians.
The independence of the "organ"
will never exist so long as its editor
holds his present government ap
pointment. He cannot be expected
lo censure his master or any oilier
oUicial who may deserve censure,
and its icccnt rapid backsliding to
its old platform, have been only too
There are only two members of
the Board of Health besides the
President ; there have been no meet
ings of the Board for many months.
For what woik does the Secretary lo
the Board receive his salary? For
whom does he act, for Mr. Gibson,
the Board of Health or for the pub
lic who pay him. The only benefit
he has yet conferred upon the public
is by endorsing the action of Mr.
Ashford in saying that "by confining
a number of persons or animals in
any place, of whom soine have a
transmissible disease while the rest
arc healthy, the healthy may become
diseased." This is applicable, on
the subject of leprosy, not only to
the schools, but to the whole commu
nity. I am, Sir, one who is
