THE PACIFIC MAILS.
Hope looms tip for the Australa
sian mail service, although vc iloubt
if this Kingdom can participate in
it. Auckland papers by the P. M.
S. S. Australia say that a memorial
has been presented to the New Zen
land Parliament from the Snn Fran
cisco Chamber of Commerce. It
petitions Parliament for the continu
ance of the service, acknowledging
the liberality of the fioverninent in
contributing to il maintenance
hitherto. While regretting that the
laws of the I'nitod States have not
admitted of any special subsidy be
ing allowed for the carriage of
ocean mails, the memorialists say
that recent American legislation lias
made this practicable. They, there
fore, urge the New Zealand Govern
ment to make provision for the ser
vice until the meeting of Congress
in December next, pledging them
selves that earnest endeavors will
then be made to induce tho Ameri
can Legislature to grant specific
suppott to the maintenance of a
service which confers such impor
tant benefits both on the colony of
New Zealand and the Pacific Coast
of the United States. The Auck
land Weekly .jYcics concludes its
article on tho subject thus: "The
Interest thus awakened in (his part
of the world, coupled with the de
claration in favor of the Californian
service already made by our own
'Parliament, places the question of
the permanency of this service be
yond a doubt, and warrants the
hope that the cost of it mainte
nance will fall less heavily on the
colony than heretofore, even if New
South Wales should finally withdraw
its aid." There is nothing in the
foregoing facts to re-assure this
Kingdom of being included in the
revised arrangement. In an article
on the subject a few days ago we
gave from the San Francisco Mer
chant a statement of a scheme that
has strong support on the Pacific
Coast, for direct communication be
tween Russell in New Zealand and
San Diego on the Pacific CoaM,
whereby New Zealand would be
-brought within twenty-three dnys
and twelve hours of London. The
strongest ground of hope we ee for
Hawaii being included in the new
arrangement is the fact that a very
deep interest is being taken just
now in New Zealand in the develop
ment of the Pacific trade, so as to
make New Zealand its- centre. It
was a great mistake worse, it was
a job when our Legislature ignored
the Company that had performed
such signal service in maintaining
rcgidar communications northward
and southward, to give an extrava
gant subsidy to its rival that only
gives service in one direction.

A note in Saturday's issue was
somewhat excessively nutcccdcut in
saying that a tree advocated by n
contemporary as worthy of Intro
I duction here was the already abund
ant algaroba. It was the carob a
sister tree of the accaciu family
nnd its bean pod differs from that of
the other in being much larger, and
brown instead of yellow. The pods
arc also superior in the possession of
nutriment. Still, even this tree has
not yet to be introduced here, as it
nourishes a few yards from this
office. Its more extended cultivation
is, however, very desirable.
A correspondent, "WoikinglMnn,"
makes the appropriate suggestion
that the enforcement of the Vagrant
Act would give a large supply of
labor to the plantations. Kvery
drone in our industrial hive, whether
living off imported or domestic
honey, is so much of a burden upon
the worker. The less loafers the
more there will be for the toilers to
cat ; the more of that the cheaper,
and the cheaper the necessaries of
life the less can laborers soil their
labor for. Any policy that will in-ercn-u
the number of idlers and
vagabonds in the country is a shoit
sightcd one, and its apparent Miccess
w ill lie very brief.
The letter of " Haolc " gives un
expected support to our warning
against further Hooding the country
with Chinese. We felt confident in
expressing apprehensions of peaceful
Chinese conquest of these dominions,
from a general knowledge of the
characteristics of that race. One of
the most remarkable ethnological
developments of the ago is the
swarming of Chinese, since they
broke away from their confinement
of ages in their ancient bounds, into
every part of the habitable globe
where they can obtain entry. It is
folly to ignore their designs in this
quarter, when in the conversation
reported by our correspondent they
arc in part so plainly revealed, and
when, as we "hall show whenever
space allows, intelligent opinion
abroad already regards the Chinese
as one of the most influential and
ajrfjressivc elements in these Islands.

the suggestion to hold the coming
regatta at Pearl River a good one.
I do not deny that " a straight and
good course could be gotthcie;"
but I would ask, how are the general
public to get there? True, ' trans
portation is not at all difficult," but
it costs money, especially if you
have neither a boat nor a horse. The
public enjoy looking at a boat race ;
then why deny them that pleasure?
Hundreds, if not thousands, of peo
ple would look on nt the Honolulu
wharf that couldn't begin to think
of going all the way to Pearl River.
To have the regatta nil the way down
there is on a par with holding the
Agricultural fair out at Kapiolant
Park, and everybody knows what a
failure that was in point of attend
ance, because of distance from the
centre of population. I say, Hono
lulu harbor, with all its drawbacks,
is the pioper place, and I am sure
the public agree with me. I can't
think that the boating clubs wish to
have all the fun to themselves. They
must certainly be. willing to give tho
public a share. Then give is a

THE WAITING CHINAMAN.
article of Saturday's issue contains
much food for thought. Your sug
gestion that the Chinamen may 6ome
day combine to raise and mill cane
for themselves on the co-operative
plan, to tho detriment of the present
planters, receives confirmation in a
conversation I heard a few days ago
between a Chinaman and a European.
The Chinaman f-aid that if the low
price of sugar continued, nnd tho
plantations came into the market at
a low figure, his countrymen were
waiting to buy them in and run them
themselves. Thcic is no disguising
the fact that the Celestial is a fur
scciug, calculating genius, and knows
wlmt he is about. IIaoi.i-..
THE LABOR SUPPLY.
EntTon ttt'LiXTtx : I sec that tho
Planters ate in want of laborers, and
think that taking off tho restrictions
to Chinese immigration would ob
viate the dilllculty. Perhaps there
is a shorter and quicker way than
that of supplying the demand; at
least, some people think so. It is
this, let the Police authorities put
the Vagrant Act into vigorous execu
tion, and hundreds of lazy idlers
right here in Honolulu would have
to go cither to work or to jail, .lust
try it. and see. People who can
work and won't work, but prefer to
sponge on their friends, should be
made to work, no matter whether
they arc Chinamen or men of any
THE W. C. HALL.
At 7:10 this morning Lucas's
whistle was heard, announcing the
news that the new steamer for the
Inter-Island Steam Navigation Co.
was coming past Coco Head. Soon
after 8 o'clock, a large crowd col
lected on the wharves to sec her
arrive. She looks very much like
the Planter, and is fitted up in mag
nificent style. A full description
has already been given of her in
these columns. Wo noticed this
morning on boarding her, two pretty
paintings hung nt the head of the stairs
leading to the cabin, one of Diamond
Head, by W. Coulter, the other the
new steamer at sea. She left San
Francisco, Saturday. October 18th.
consequently has made the trip inside
of nine days. Pleasant weather pre
vailed the whole of the trip. She is
called after one of the builders,
brings a cargo valued nt $4,737. aud
also three passengers, Mr. T. I?.
Tostcr, Mrs. M. Staples aud J. F.
Noble. We congratulate the Inter
Island Steam Navigation Co. on such
a fine acquisition to their already
large fleet of steamers.

Several battles are reported as
having been fought in Tonquin,
where fresh bodies of Chinese troops
are pouring in. In an engagement
on the shore of Tamsui three thou
sand Chinese were killed, while the
French loss was trifling. Two bat

between Langson and Bacninh, one
being won by the French and the
other by the Chinese. A Min river
pilot reports that all the French ships
have left Matson for Port Arthur.
The Chinese are fortifying the
heights of Tamsui and refuse to
surrender their positions. The na
tives in Southern Formosa are
harassing the Chinese troops, who
arc asking for reinforcements. A
Paris paper asserts that of the 10,
000 French soldiers in Tonquin only
4,000 arc effective. It declares that
the Chinese invasion, if not arrested,
threatens to overwhelm the French
and it is necessary that not a mere
reinforcement, but an army be sent
to their assistance.
