NOT SO EASY.
It is frequently snid that, owing
to the iliminutivones- of this King
dom and Hip f.paist;nc"s of its popu
hition. Hip work of gtnerninu: it is
.simple and easy; thai thcie is no
room for the exorcise of statesman
ship; that a Cabinet of four -Ministers
is out of proportion to the needs
of the country ; that one Minister is
MilTlcicnt. and that there is not work
enough to employ even one half his
time. The first reply to all this is.
that it is usually easier to say how
easy it is to do a thing than to do it.
Another fact to be lemcmbered is,
that the country, although small, is
composed of ka number of islands
extending over considerable, water
space, and unconnected by cable.
Still another fact that complicates
the work of government is this, that
the people governed, are not all of
one tace. but are composed of
various races, of divetse language.-,
customs, and habits of thought.
Undoubtedly, if thc.sovcial islands
ijf the group could be united into
one race, both the dilliculty and the
cost of government would be con
siderably' lessened. In outlining
tho chief causes which make the
government of this little Kingdom,
with itb seventy thousand people, a
less easy task than might appear at
first sight, we hae no intention to
insinuate that to govern them is
absolutely a dillicult undertaking, or
that it requires extraotilinary capa
bilities or piofound statesmanship.
As a matter of fact, considering the
impediments above indicated, the
'machinery woiks with astonishing
smoothness. The native themselves
ire remarkably docile, and icspcct
'law and authority. The same may
lie said, measurably, of tho masses
of the Chinese and Portuguese on
the islands. The foreigners of oilier
nationalities nl-o fall into line pretty
readily. Hut although the actual
'condition of this nation of mixed
peoples is not such as to necessitate
j;", the possession of a distinctly high
ix order of udininisliative-qiialilicalions
on the part ol stale JIinistct and
Miboidinntc olllcials, yet to suppose
that there is nothing for .Ministers
and subordinate oflicials to do, or
? that tho woik is so easih done that
brainless tyros can do it, shows lack
ot co;iipichensioii. In this country,
i, as well as in everv other, all public
gllleers should be men of industry,
combined with integrity and palriol-
.isin, am' possessed of some practical
Wknowlcdac of the nine dps of p ii-

THE BRITISH. SCIENTISTS-NO. 4.
In Hip biology section, at one of
its meetings, Professor Moscloy
dealt with the subject of "Life in
the Ocean Depths." lie was one of
the scientific pally on board II. H.
SI. S. Challenger, in the famous
dredging expedition round the world.
Many of our residents will remem
ber the viil of that ship here, which
is enthusiastically mentioned in
Lieutenant Spry's narrative of the
voyage. Speaking of the gases
existing in ocean water, lip said that
possibly the immense quantities of
dead and blackened coral biought
up by the Challenger from deep
water off (he Azores, showed the
effects of a discharge of carbonic
acid gas from a submarine volcano.
The smallest amount of oxygen ever
found was in a sample of water from
a depth of I(!,fi0 feet, and even
that contained three times the oxy
gon in which some fish can live.
Far more oxygen was found in a
sample from a much greater depth,
proving that the water is not stag
nant at thoe vast depths. Experi
ments by Kegnard showed that a
fish without a -winiining bladder
was killed by being submitted to a
pressure of JIOO atmospheres, equal
to a depth of 12,000 feet; but the
professor thought the result might
have been different if the f!h were
allowed time to accommodate itself
to tho greater prc-sure. Deep -ea
inhabitants derived much of their
food from the remains of animals
sinking slowly down from the sur
face, also from material carried out
from the shore, and deep sCa life
seemed to diminish a- coasts are
receded from. Professor Verril had
recently made the -uggcstion that at
a depth of 12,000 to 18.000 feet the
-unliglit i- about equal to partial
moonlight at the surface. Up can
noned hi- audience against accept
ing implicitly all the published re
sults of the Challenger's explora
tions, as ouic specimens labelled as
coming from great depths may have
entered the net near the surface.
The conelu-ion of Professor Jloe
Ipv's address is reported as follows:
There used to be a tendency
among naturalists to deny the exist
ence of animal life on deep-sea bottom-:
now there is an opposite
tendency to accept animal- as be
longing to great depths when po-si-bly
they only come from the sur
face. With regard to the origin of
the deep sea animals, there can be
little doubt that they were derived,
along with all laud animals, almost
entirely from those on the shore.
From the shore a gradual migration
miK have taken place to the deep
sea, when the shore animals were
fully established and were subject
ed to considerable pressure in the
.struggle for existence. It is likely
that this migration extended over a
long scries of gcneiations. moving
downwards from shallow water by
pet haps a fathom or so in a century.
Only in this way, by almost insensi
ble step-, could these animals sur
vive an entire change of food, light,
tempcratuie and surioundings. As
much of the deep-sea fishes' food
comes fiom the shore, and as that
supply can only have reached its
present abundance when vegetable
and animal life had been developed
on the land (as in the Cnrbonifcrous
period) it is just possible that, if
deep oceans existed at all in Pnlie
ooic times, they may not have been
then colonized at all.
Another question for the proposed
debating society : In which place
does Mr. Kcau more fitly represent
his constituents, thepjplcof Hono
lulu, in Pailiament or in (lie Police
Societies instigated by patriotism,
public spirit and humanity have
done an incalculable amount of ser
vice to civilization in modern times,
particularly in the achievements of
the Rritish Umpire. It wis no idle 1
motive that prompted our sugges
tion at different limes lately, that a
Society for the Promotion of Home
Industry would be a desirable institu
tion Iicip. Who will initiate action I
in the matter?
Thi- morning's . Ulwrfiier makes
the welcome announcement that the
first instalment of Japanese laborors,
numbering about oix bundled, may
be expected next month. The
planters will doubtless come to their
annual convention on Hie 20th hist.,
in better spirits, on account of this
prospect, than they olherwibo would.
It is fortunate that the Legislature
held out successfully against tho
strong picssurc brought to bear, at
the eleventh hour, to abandon the'
preference of Japanese, apparently i
on behalf of private interests that
would have been better served the
more. Portuguese imported. Had
the J.egislaluic yielded to that pres
sure, there is no icasoii to doubt
that fresh contracts for the more
expensive Portuguese would have
heenhunicd through, and thus the
general desire to lest the Japanese
scheme- be defeated. One-fifth of
the anticipated Japanese immigia
lion it is promised wo can have
AOO a month through I88.r if neces
sary will consist of women, which
is disappointingly small, not only to
the community ns a whole but to the
planters, as the latter had been led
to expect that onc-thitd, if not one
half, would be women. Tho men
ate leprpscntcd as trained agricul
tural laborers fiom the interior of
Japan, Sir. Irwin describing them as
"first-class sugar-planting laborers."
At the opening of the Siipieme
Couit this morning, Mr. S. H. Dole
introduced tho following resolutions :
IFicww. William C. Parke.
F.sq., has been lelired from the
office of Marshal of the Kingdom,
which he has honorably held for the
last thirty years.
Ik it Itemized, 1 That we,
members of the Hawaiian liar, here
by express our sincere rcgiet at his
retirement, and cheerfully iccord our
warm appreciation of his long and
faithful olllcial service in those dutie
relating to the practice of the Courts
of the Kingdom. We feel that the
Judiciary has lost a com Icons,
piompt and vigilant olllcer.
2 That our best wishes for his
prosperity and happiness follow him
into the walks of private life.
