The Minister of Foreign Affaits
lias republished the "regulations for
the admission of Chinese immigrant
laborers into the Hawaiian Kingdom"
which weic passed, in Cabinet Coun-"
oil, on 13th July 1883.
This step has been taken in con
sequence of the arrival of more than
1,000 Chinese males, within a month,
by the stcamcis of the Pacific Mail
Company, the City of Rio dc Janei
ro and the City of Tokio. The Bri
tish steamer Arabic and the P. M.
S. S. Co.'s steamer City of Pekin,
besides a Btitish tramp steamer, arc
all expected within the next few
weeks, and each vessel will bring its
quantum of "Chinese immigrant
It is u curious coincidence that
two steamers, flying the American
flag, should be allowed to land their
"immigrant laborers" and that the
nine months old regulations should
bo enforced only when the next
steamer expected is a British steamer.
Has the Minister of Foreign Affaits,
from past experience, in the Madras
for instance, had enough of British
steamers? Or is it a recurrence of
the old insimatlons that no Britishers
are wanted here? These "Chinese
immigrant laborers" come from
Hongkong, a British port. Some of
them may be British subjects. How
will the Minister of Foreign Affairs
prevent them from landing without
violating the Treaty Rights with
Great Britain? The Treaty says that
"the subjects of each of the two
contracting parties respectively, shnll
have liberty freely atul securely to
pome with, their ships and cargoes,
to nil places, ports and rivers in the
tciritorics of the other, tvhero inulo
with other nations is permitted.
They may remain and reside in any
part of the said t6rritorics respec
tively, and hire and occupy houses,
If the Foreign Olllce Regulations
of 13th July, 1883, bo rcgidly en
forced then it precludes the impor
tation of Chinese by the proposed
Sprcckcls line of steamers. If the
Pacific Mail Coinpnny or any British
steamers cannot land more than
twenty-five "Chinese immigrant
laborers front any one vessel," then
how can permission be granted to
Colonel Sprockets to land 000
"Chinese immigrant laborers" every
three months, to the exclusion of
the owners of vessels of other nation
alities V Colonel Kpreckcls is not
likely to run twenty-four steamers
from Hongkong to Honolulu, every
three months, in order to makeup his
complement of six hundred by carry
ing twenty-five men oti each.
The Honolulu agents of the vessels
that bring the "Chinese immigrant
laborers" are not to be held respon
sible for the arrival of these vessels.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs has
sent his nine months old "Regula
tions," accompanied by a Protest,
to the proper ollicinl quarters in
Hongkong, but, up to the present
time, no notice has been taken of
them. Where is the Board of Immi
gration? Arc its members again
ignored by the Foreign Office? Have
they no voice in immigration matters
and have they no power to make
We do not support the indiscrimi
nate importation of Chinese, in frtct
we think there are enough, if not
more 'than enough, of them in the
Kingdom. But we do want to see
fair play. If American steamers
can land Chinese, then British
steamers should be allowed the same
privilege, and Foreign Office Regu
lations should not be immediately
enforced on the arrival of a British

Prince Bismarck is preparing :i
draft of a proposed new Constitu

"dictator" clause similar to that in
the Prussian Constitution.
The proposed treaty between Eng

most important results of the Soudan
rebellion. Whatever terms may be
finally agreed upon with King John,
the English are likely to secure a

fatally injured. The damage to roll

New York, March 17. The Tri
bune says: The experiments now
making at the Fort Hamilton war
ship with the dynamite gun, show
that it will accomplish all that its
inventor claims for it. We are on
the eve of a great change of methods
of all kinds of warfare. The dyna
mite is placed in a hollow projec
tion, which is thrown from a gun by
compressed air. There is no explo
sion, the inventor says, until the
projectile strikes the object at which
it is aimed. The destruction is great
enough to sink the heaviest iron clad.
The experiments thus far have
proved reasonably successful.

that of August Inst. Many more

London, March lfi. In Berlin to
day it was scmi-oHlcinlly announced
that the principal powers of Europe
had agreed to join in the confedera
tion proposed jointly by Germany
and France for the suppression of all
anarclnal forms of Socialism. The
announcement was, however, coupled
wit"h the statement that the country
most necessary to the success of the
confederation , Switzerland, had final
ly and unreservedly refused to join.
The Swiss Federal Council in its
note of declination takes the posi
tion that the nature of the Govern
ment of Switzerland forbids and
renders unnecessary the espionage
and discrimination proposed, and
states that so far as. Swiss experience
has shown, the so-called anarchists
are a vulgar and nninfluential lot of
criminals, easily made amenable to
the regular laws and not worth the
especial notice of the Government
or a confederation of Governments.
The attitude of Switzerland is a
serious disappointment to Bismarck,
and it is believed will eventually
cause the abandonment of the pro
posed confedetation, which would
be impracticable so long as Switzer
land offered a harbor to anarchists.
