While political prescience is un
doubtedly a iiobio and :i useful gift,
it is not the only, nor the best,
quality for patriotic men to bring
into play to deliver a country out of
an unfortunate situation. It is
necessary for statesmen whereby
we mean men who arc taking an
intelligent and active interest in
affairs, and are competent by edu
cation and experience to take a hand
in government, either advisory or
executive, a well as actual rulers
for the time being to look ahead
and be guided largely by future
probabilities, besides present con
ditions. Yet there is danger of in
terests existing under certain pres
ent conditions suffering by too much
speculation upon the future. The
wayfarer, by keeping his eye too
intently upon a distant obstacle in
his path to lie shunned, or upon a
far away linger post to direct him,
may fall into a pit that might have
been avoided had his vision taken a
shorter range. "Sulllcient unto the
day is the evil thereof." is n maxim
that would pave states :is well as
individuals at times frnm much
unnecessary worry, fruitless specu
lation and mistaken policy.
It is well to discuss the future of
this group, we do not deny, when
events are proving Mint the nation
cannot long go on in its present
courses without disaster. Hut if
such a discussion is going to involve
the ovei looking of present responsi
bilities it would be better to drop it.
Had as the case may be. it i-, non
sense to say that the condition of
the Kingdom is irremediable. Mani
fold huger and more populous na
tions have been far deeper in the
mine and rescued by .self-denying
patriotism and patient effort, lie
form has done much more for Mic
world than revolution. It is time
enough to talk of new systems of
government when the wrongs of the
present "one are measured and in
effectually sought to be removed bj'
united, persistent and manful effort
on the part of all who truly eck the
welfare of the nation. For decency's
sake, do not reiterate assertions of
brown or black-skinned incapacity
for power while' white-skinned .sec
tionalism and prejudice prevent even
an attempt at concerted action to
set, right the disjointed state. The
Hawaiian race, according to its op
portunities, is as promising a subject
for free government as many of the
peoples who have been wildly experi
menting upon civilized institutions
for ages. I low do the races broadly
classified as Celtic, for instance,
.stand in that respect to-day? Those
who arc not the dependents of the
Anglo-Saxon are in the position of
not knowing what a, day may bring
forth in their respective forms of
government. The ancient Roman
acted as the white adopted Hawaiian
talks to-day, and now the ancient
barbarian has tho best part of his
vast dominions. " Act, act, in the
living present, heart within and hope
ahead." A great deal of current
political literature is coarse and
heartless, and designing speculation
in it takes the place of hope. It,
will better fulfil the law of righteous
ness to encourage and help the Ha
waiian than to discourage him and
assist his downfall. The praise of
the Hawaiian missionary is in all the
earth'. Let ' not the succeeding
niwsilc of grasping greed nml Mlliy f
lucre tiling himself into execration

A Loudon paper is authority for
the statement Unit trouble is blowing
in India, wliiuli, if it find vent, will
make the great Sepoy revolt appear
commonplace beside it.
Count Do Lcsseps lias assuredly a
haul row to hoc at Panama. En
gineering obstacle? having been
surmounted, the great difficulty of
obtaining laborers to stand the
climate presented itself. Next he
lias to face a renewal of Government
obstruction from the United States
of Colombia. The order has gone
forth that the Panama Railroad must
not be cut, changed or damaged for
the benefit of the Canal. If enter
prise wcic subject to such hardships
everywhere, the progress of the pic
scnt century would be some hundred
fold less than it is.
Hy request we give the gist of an
allldavit made recently by a Califor
nia notary public upon IheMcSwccny
case. McSweeny returned to Ireland
after having lived some years in
California, and, falling under sus
picion ns a conspirator against Brit
ish authority, was cast into prison.
Mr. Blaine was then Secretary of
State, and, it is chaigcd against him
now. refused to help McSweeny out
of jail, notwithstanding he knew him
to be an American citizen. The
allldavit referred to above is to the
effect that deponent was McSwceny'.s
attorney for a time before he left
California, and that McSweeny,
against his advice, renounced Ame
rica, and went to Ireland with the
intention of spending the rest of his
life on an estate he had bought
there. This allldavit was made to
counteract the inlluence of Mc
Sweeny's being exhibited in person
though the country by the Demo
cratic .National Committee, as an
American citizen whom Mr. Hlainc
had left to rot in a British prison.
It would be risky to say what
cannot he utilized in arts or sciences
in this practical and inquisitive age.
A factory has just been started at
Stockton, California, to make life
preservers out of tides, the well
known swamp growth. They aro
said to be much lighter, cheaper and
more buoyant than those made from
cork, and one steamship company,
already, has ordered several thou
sands of them. Despised raw mater
ial and neglected rcsoniccs, no
doubt, in many countries, represent
the difference between good and
bad time?. If all the known possi
ble small industries in the Hawaiian
Islands were developed, wc have no
doubt they would at this juncture
more than counterbalance the depres
sion caused by the. low price of
The gentleman who is taking the
trouble of polling votes' for the Pre
sidential election advertises that
none but American citizens ma'
have the franchise. Immediately
below his notice the local editor of
the Advertiser assures all foreign
residents that they can vote, as tho
object is " nn expression of general
public opinion here." The latter
would seem to be the more sensible
arrangement, as Americans have no
more right to their homo franchise
here than a foreigner has to it tlicie.
By; the way, we made a slip of
memory yesterday in a reference to
tho "'Woman's Rights" candidate,
saying Mrs. Stanton for Mrs. Lock
wood. The ladies will pardon us,
as the mistake was made too late to
hurt their candidate's chances for
the Presidential chair.
Under the head, "Hawaiian Com
mercial Stock," tho San Francisco
Jiulletin of October 22nd has the
following: "In local stock circles,
one of the greatest disappointments
of late years has been the almost
total collapse of tho stock of the
Hawaiian Commercial Company.
This enterprise has to do with sugar
plantations or manufacturers, or
both on the Hawaiian Islands. The
Company was organized by Claus
Sprcckcls and others. At first the
shares wcic divided into 1,000
each, with but few stockholders.
Subsequently they were cut up into
S100 shares, and sold at SCO nml
upwards. Several monthly dividends
wuro paid. The business not tuflt
ing out as well as expected, theso
were soon passed, and the slock
commenced to depreciate in value.
It went down as rapidly as it had
advanced. 1'or some months the
demand has been very indifferent at '
low figures. There were 1,1 10 shares
sold in the Stock and Bond Kx
'change in August at, S.'l to SI, and
710 shares in September at $3 to
SO.-W,. To-day oOO shares sold at
Sl.fiO, and the best bid at the close
was SI per shaie." We l egret if a
concern, having o large a slake in
this country as the one spoken of, is
in such a bad way as that dcsciibcd.

noon to-day, while he was watering
it at the Queen's Hospital, Punch

rited, silvcr-giay animal, and ca
reered at a terrific rate down town,
turning corners with startling velo
city. Passing through Music Hall
lane he turned the corner of that
and Queen street, but that was his
last feat of that kind, for the cart
careened over with a crash and
landed the brute on his back. It
was impossible to unloose the tackle
on account of the back chain bind
ing tightly upon the horse's belly,
causing him great distress for breath.
He was only relieved, fortunately
without serious injury, by breaking
off the shaft irons with an axe.

The British Parliament was opened

the great subject of representation

Prince Albert of Prussia is the can

from n partisan of the Guclphs reign

that a strong expression of public
