Sonic people arc apt to exaggerate
ami others to iimlcr-estimato the im
portance of this Kingdom among the
f family of nation-. The former err
from lack of knowledge and experi
ence of other countries, and the
latter from taking extclit of territory
', and number of population as the
standard of measure. In forming a
jL correct estimate, geographical posi
tion must constitute a principal
factor. It is not so much what the
N country actually i at the present
k time, with its limited producing area
e and its small population, as what it
is eanable of becomiiiir bv devolon-
rv ment, and the position it will natu
rally assume through increase of
trade between other countries, which
trade must ultimately pas this way.
When a water,, passage is opened
through the middle part of the
W American continent, which is almost
f certain to be accomplished within
the next six or eight yearn, a large
!,' proportion of the world's commerce
k it sure to be diverted from its old
channels. And these islands, being
Wt located on the direct line between so
many points affected by this diver
sion, cannot fail to acquire an im
portance similar to that of .Singapore,
and for the siuic leason. It rc-
T& nnirott iwi vltf.fint I'm r.QWrlit tn iwmli.f

that this country will then become a
midway station of call and a depot
of supplies for the merchant niatine
gu of nianv nations. In viow of this
' consideration, our first aim should
p. be to maintain untrammelled hide-
is pendence and strict neutrality. It
E) is best for Hawaii, and best for the
fc. world at large, that we remain as
now, a distinct nation, having our
I'own government and managing our
i own affairs. Next comes the develop
ment of our natural resources, and,
in order thereto, every encourage
St' incut should be. given the people to
m settle permanently on the land, and
me uuiK 01 me revenue siiouui DC
expended in the construction of such
l' public works as roads, bridges and
wharves. .Such a policy, vigorously
?', and clllciently prosecuted, would
1,, secure to tins countvy stability, pros
it ncritv and contentment, and elevate
p it. to a respectable, respected and
y liillucntial position nmoiiK the crcat

The Adeertiiter is publishing .Mr.

During the nineteen years slnte
salmon (lacking was slatted in Ore
gon, over six million cases have been
put up on the Columbia River, the
value of which was about thirty-four
and a half million dollars. This will
give our leaders some idea of the
importance of the packing industry
wc want to have started here, that is,
assuming, what wc arc assured is
beyond doubt, that these islands will
yield in abundance many products
Tlie Hygienic Congress, which lias
just been in session in Holland,
deputed that country to formulate
proposals for organizing a permanent
International Sanitary Commission
for preventing the spread of epidemic
diseases. Wc trust Holland will
include, in its communication to this
country, some instruction ih tlie
rudiments of sanitation which would
induce our Government to expend a
moiety of the attention and money
now devoted to tlie cure of diseases
upon the prevention of them.
Wc have received a letter signed
by four gentlemen, including a
cleigyman, questioning the justice
of our conclusion that Mr. Ison
berg's version of his reference in
the Assembly to the Government
Physician at Lihite confirmed our
report. The matter was one entirely
between the two gentlemen from
the first, as our report taken down
at the moment the words were
uttered was open for the speaker's
correction a whole fortnight before
he offered to disclaim it. Everyone
who heard the honorable noble on
the occasion knows that he spoke
with warmth upon the whole subject,
and we consider our reputation for
fairness and accuracy to be as pre
cious to us as the mutual relations
of the gentlemen arc to them.
Therefore, having given Mr. Iscn
berg's disclaimer f hat he meant what
he was reported to have uttered,
and published the fact that the sub
ject of his remarks was satislied
with his explanation, we have done
all that could in justice be asked of
"Common Sense," who adminis
ters "unio left-handed compliments
to us regarding the productions of
our rhyming mill, seems to be one of
those fellows who desire, "like our
grandsires," to "sit in alabaster."
With all deference to his long face,
we choose to follow in this respect
the injunction of "divine William,"
by giving some rein to "mirth and
laughter" "aye, let wrinkles
come." There is something wrong
with the man who passes a day
without doing something to develop
in himself and others tlie mirthful
spirit that Solomon says doctli good
like a medicine. The daily paper,
likewise, is distempered which neg
lects the same function. Let our
correspondent remember that the
gravest beast is tlie ass, tlie gravest
bird is tlie owl and the gravest llsh
is the oyster. As for the doggerel
that gives him so much pain, wo
know that it has afforded agreeable
amusement to many, and until wc
are assured that it has not to most
of our readers, only the failure of
subjects or the breaking down of
the rhyming machine will deter us
from occasionally indulging in the
Coriit-pimdcwc 1 solicited on the topic-
f iliuday, or what may become so.

ANOTHER DANIEL COME TO JUDG
MENT. KniToit Hui.ixtin : It is with un
feigned rcgiet that I pen these few
lines to yon concerning a nuisance
which I think ought to be suppressed.
I do not think that you are the chief
offender, although you certainly arc
lie latest. Hut I wish to draw your
attention to the annoyance to thought
ful readers caused by the production
of the doggerel written by you and
your fellow-scribblers in other papers.
No doubt your comic ( ?) Ilings at.
each other. arc good-humored. 1
hope so. For if they arc not you
should recollect that the public aro
not so interested in your mutual ilis-
likes as you aro yourselves, and
oven If they arc good-humored think
what an impression is produced on
your icadeis as to your several
capacities to f 1 11 your news columns
with 1 callable and interesting matter.
Commending the matter to the com
mon sense of yourself and your
contemporaries, I Mibseiibo myself.
II AW Al IAN IMPORTANCE.
Kditok Hui.lktin : It is frequent
ly overlooked by many that this
country occupies an important geo
graphical position which goes far to
raise it in rank in the family of
nations. It is the key of the North
Pacific, and to have this key in the
hands of any of the great nations
would he a standing menace to all
other powers whose possessions
border on, or whose marine trades
in, its waters. It is the western key
of tlie Pauama canal the future
ocean highway between "Western
Europe and Eastern Australia, At
lantic America and Pacific Ameiica.
It is close to the track of the vessels
plying between the Pacific States and
British Columbia on the one hand
ami Australia and the South Sea on
the other, and to the course of vessels
going from China, Japan, and
Further India to tlie Pacific Coasts
of North and South America and
returning home from there, in these
days of the rapid increase of steamer
tralllc it will ultimately be a port of
call for coaling and transhipping for
steamer!) on all these routes and
these steamers, too, will represent
almost all nations. In view of these
facts it can easily be seen that this
country is as important in this
Hemisphere as Hclgiuin or Egypt on
(lie other side of the globe, it is to
the advantage of all the powers not
only to guai antcc its neutrality and
independence, but to endeavor to
increase and hold up its importance
so that it may govern itself and pre
serve itself free from dependence
on an' other nation. To take every
advantage of these facts and to keep
in friendly relations with all other
countries should be the object of our
foreign policy. It is for the good
of every citizen and icsidcnl here
that this nation should be an in
dependent and respectable member
of the family of nations. It may
seem to some of us that a small
stale should keep as much in the
back-ground as possible, but a wise
and enlightened statesman will look
to the future and endeavor to pave
the way for that time when this state
with fully developed resources will
stand as the most important in the
Pacific. The Legislature wisely, I
think, replaced tlie item for the
support of Foreign Missions in tlie
Appropriation Hill. It is necessary
that money should be spent in keep
ing up friendly relations with other
countries and in postiug tlicm on our
advancement and position. And in
this connection I desire to add my
mite of satisfaction to tlie general
one which is felt at the sending of
Professor Alexander and the Hon.
L. Aholo as commissioners to the
Meridian Coogress. All arc agreed
that wc c6uld not send a better
scientist than Mr. Alexander from
here, and as to Mr. Aholo it would
be exceedingly diflicult to find a
Hawaiian better suited for such
service. Mr. Aholo has had the
reputation of being one of tlie most
dignified of his race for many years
aud lie will no doubt give greater
satisfaction than one who, knowing
English but imperfectly, might cover
himself with shame by some blunder.
I trust that the Government will
never have to be charged with having
made a worse selection.
EoiTOit Hui.u:tin: In times of
general depression it is always as
well to look about for some fresh
means of increasing the national
wealth. When California's gold
gave out, what was taken up to make
her, as she is now, one of the richest
States in the Union? Agriculture
takes first rank, but viticulture and
fruit-raising have had no inconsider
able share in raising her to the
proud pre-cmiucuce in which alio
stands to-day, and in the latter, one
of this greatest factors in its develop--ment
aro canneries, pickling and
preserving factories of all kinds. It
seems to nic that these Islands pre
sent as frond !i field for the fn-nw-th
of similar industries as did Califor-
uia in itn oarly days. Fruits grow
rapidly and luxuriantly In litis
favored clime, and wo only want a '
littlo infusion ot the typical American
energy and smartness to make the
business a success. To mention one
item, pickling the ohitt or mountain
apple would, if properly undertaken,
bring in a considerable revenue. The
fruit is to be had in millions in our
valleys simply for tlie gathering nnd
when pickled resembles, but is
superior to, the finest pickled English
walnuts. Tamarinds again can be
pickled ; so also can mangoes, and the
quantity ready for tlie first enterpris
ing man who takes hold of the busi
ness is unlimited. No doubt many
other fruits could be prepared for
market in a similar way or put up as
preserves, and tomato ketchup could
also be made a feature of the busi
ness. Who will take it up?
