NEW ZEALAND AMBITION.
Sir Julius Voccl. the new Premier
of New Zealand, litis fathered n
' rather ambitious scheme for the de
velopment of the South Sen trade,
with that, colony if its centre. His
plan is brielly summarized ns follows
in a Now Zealand paper: "He pro
poses that a sum of :i million sterl
ing should be raised for the purpose
of developing the trade of the South
Sea Island1!, from Hawaii to New
Zealand. Of this sum, one-fifth
to be subscribed in New Zealand,
one-fifth in Australia, one-fifth in
the United States, one-fifth in Orcat
ISritnin, and one-fifth in France.
The fJcrinan interests in the South
' Soas are to be. bought out. and so
got rid of. The New Zealand (!ov
crnmcut. who are to have control of
the operations, arc to guarantee iu-
i forest at ;") percent, on the capital:
' but. no greater liability than f 10,000
is to bo incurred on that account iu
any one year. On the other hand,
a medium of commerce is to be
' created in the form of New Zealand
Government notes, which aie to cir-
; dilate as cash throughout the in
lands, but arc to be payable to
bearer in New Zealand only." Com
menting upon the scheme, the. Clirist-
church, X. '... 7Vw ".ays that, as
well ns to make New Zealand the
centre of the South Sea Island trade,
the aim is ' at the muiic time to re
concile or remove conflicting national
interests that have hitherto gone a
long way to debar the trade from
attaining those proportions which
! under more favorable circumstances,
it is imagined, would properly belong
to it." That paper adds : " What
ever opinion may be entertained as
to the ostensible object of the scheme,
there will assuredly be a vciy wide
difference of opinion as to whether
the methods proposed for achieving
it arc such as the (Jovcinincnt of
this colony could safely or creditably
be identified with." It may be a
dilllcult mutt or to get European and
'American capitalists to put their
faith and money in this glittering
enterprise. The French, particu
larly, may at this juncture be ex
pected to be shy of assisting a Hrit
ish colonial project in the South
Seas. Heniinisccnccs of the "South
Sea bubble'' of yore may risen)
'and condemn it iu (5 rent Britain.
.Apparently it is not deemed worth
while asking Hawaii for a quota of
' the capital that is to be expended
., largely iu her interest, but when Sir"
.Julius's company launches its paper
;' currency among us, it may llutl it
will not circulate unless backed by
i some yellow specio iu our treasury.
r Possibly the New Zealand Premier
has an eye to Polynesian Kmpiro
, with centripetal energy converging
on Auckland, and centrifugal force
; Radiating therefrom. While an In
' crease of trade between this group
and the South Seas is very desirable,
iwhc"thor promoted by New Zealand
or any other country, the fact that
' the scheme is regarded doubtfully iu
that Colony, where it originated,
ulocs not make us, very sanguine that
t much, if anything, will conic of it.
p As to the reconciliation or removal
of, any national interests that may
have existed on the part of Hawaii,
militating against the Southern trade,
there arc probably none that the
tender of equal terms by our neigh
bors would not dispose of. Unfor
tunately, (ho Interests of a few
American steamship owners have
been deemed paramount, by our Leg
islature to our own interests in the
Pacific- trade, so that all national
suppott has been cut off from n line
serving us well on two sides in order
to have enough to satisfy the unrea
sonable demands of a line wanting a
monopoly of our California trade.
The money the Legislature voted
was enough to make a liberal sub
sidy to both, but it seems one of
them had control of the Legislatmc
and the other had not. If Sir.luliits
Yogcl's scheme be carried out, (lie
cutting off of the Australasian mail
subsidy may not prove as injurious
to our interests as would otherwise
be the ense. but no credit should
come to our legislators for any harm
thus averted. Notwithstanding our
scepticism iu the matter, as New
Zealand takes all the risk and there
is no present danger of Hawaiian
independence being compromised
from that quarter, we can afford to
cordially wish Sir Julius success in
Action lias at length been taken to
have the regatta on the King's
Hirtliday properly managed, the
Honolulu Yacht and Mowing Club
bcinj the lirst to move. If the
aquatic clubs cannot, unaided, at
tend to more than the water sports,
a committee of "laud lubbers"
should lie formed to combine with
them iu getting up and executing a
systematic programme for the whole
Tjir. Ahcrlisfr suggests that the
American residents hold a mock
election on Tuesday next, the day of
the real Presidential election in their
own country. Just to please the
boys. If the playing at an election
methodically contested on defined
issues gives them and others a taste
for practical politics in their adopted
country, the amusement might prove
useful otherwise than ns diversion
for a dull season.
Heboid, an editor went out to lisli
for news. And he waited round
town all day and caught nothing.
Therefore, ho started for the olllcc
sorrowing, saying that he should
have nothing but the usual article in
favor of admitting the Chinese. Hut,
lifting up his eyes, he saw the goodly
bark which is called F.l Dorado being
hauled on the Marine Railway.
Whereupon he telephoned to the
olllcc to stop the press and reserve
the best place in the editorial page
for a fresh news itciu. And it was
done, and when the editor saw the
printed sheet, he made merry over
his rare enterprise.
The latest communication in the
ably-conducted correspondence be
tween the Planters and the Premier,
is given elsewhere iu this issue. It
is from the former, and catches the
latter iu about the only equivocal
position lie has fallen into through
out the discussion. That is, where
they quote his statement iu his first
letter, that only the single shipment
of Japanese arranged for could be
expected without outside financial
assistance to the Government, along
with his later holding out of the
hope that the Government would be
good for one or two further ship
ments during 188f. This corres
pondence is noteworthy for its tcm
peratcness, and the evident disposi
tion it exhibits oil both sides to be
reasonable and conciliatory. Indeed,
the mutual interests of the Company
and the Government demanded that
the subject should bo approached by
both in tho sprit in which it has
THE PLANTERS TO THE GOVERNMENT.
The following is the last commu
nication that has passed in the cor
respondence between the. Govern
ment and the special immigration
committee of the Planters' Com
pany: Hi.xoi.n.r, Oct. 28th, 1881.
To His Ex. tiii: Hon. W. M. Cumin:
Sir, Wo have the honor to ac
knowledge receipt of your Excel
lency's letter dated October 27th,
and the Company have very fully
considered the itnpoitnnt statements '
conveyed to us therein.
Wc beg permission to make a cor
rection in one impression which Your ,
Excellency appears to have gathered ,
from the conversation of the Com
mittee on Friday last, in that we
saw only one remedy for the tlifll
culty iu which the planters appear to ,
be placed viz.. the invitation by
the Government of 2,000 voluntary j
immigrants from China. j
In our interview on Thursday
last, Your Excellency informed us
Hint there was every assurance that
i the. wants of the planters would be
! fully supplied from Japan, if the
i Government were able to provide
, the money voted by the Legislature.
Your Excellency informed us, liow-
i ever, that the Government were not
I iu a position to provide this money,
I and the reason alleged was the im-
' possibility of selling the Government
l bonds at present. Wo understood
Your Excellency to state iu reply to
the committee, that, beyond the
first lot of GOO Japanese, there was
no prospect of any further immigra
tion, unless money could be pro
cured outside the revenues of the
nation, and that no efforts were
being made to that end, beyond the
formal advertisement of the bonds
It was therefore clear to the com
mittee that, notwithstanding tho
good intentions of the Government,
and the expressed desiro of the
Legislature, both must be defeated
by the financial conditions pointed
out by Your Excellency. This
closed all idea of assisted imuiigrit
lion and rendered two courses alone
possible either the removal of res
trictions on private immigration, or
the reduction iu the number of
laborers and the contraction of
We respectfully point out to Your
Excellency that, in the opinion of
the Planters" Labor and Supply Co.,
the one remedy for the dilllcul.ty in
which planters are placed is the
carrying out of the Japanese immi
gration scheme, advocated alike by
the Government, tho Legislature
and the planters. The inability of
the Government to carry out this
scheme creates a new phase of dilll
culty, with which neither the Gov
ernment nor the planters had to
deal during the year 188!!, when the
various letters to which Your Excel
lency draws our attention were writ
ten. We. are glad that Your Excel
lency's expectations arc so fur modi
fled as to lead to the assumption that
two if not more shipments of Japan
ese may be looked for in 188fi, iu
addition to those expected this year.
We. however, learn with much
disappointment and regret, that
Your Excellency cannot hold out
any hope of such steps being adopt
ed by His Majesty's Government
cither in prosecution in one direc
tion, or relaxation iu another,
as would give us confidence
deuce that tho disastrous position
the Committee have foreshadowed
to Your Excellency would be averted.
The Company will adjourn its ses
sion to-day, but have considered it
necessary to agree to come together
again shortly to concert steps for
the preservation and protection of
, the interests they represent.
Wo have the honor to be,
Your obedient servants.
