THE DUTY OF THE HOUR.
We shall not suppose that the
present Clovcrnuioiit went out to
morrow, or next day. or a year
henee. hut that it. was defeated at
the next elections. If the Opposi
tion triumphed not upon the strength
of a united front upon a long-settled
policy, but by means of a hur
ried combination taking advantage
of the weak hold of the Minister"
upon the confidence of the country,
of what lasting value would the
victory beV A new Ministry might
be sent down to meet the Legisla
ture which the representatives of
dominant public opinion could not
unanimously agree to support.
Some are opposed, some in favor, of
the new Ministers, and a number are
on the fence. The dissentients and
the indifferent ones may be rein
forced by the remnant of the sup
porters of the defeated Ministers,
and a good (iovormncnt be rendered
helpless' at the start, or there may
be a combination formed to carry
through a floverninent that would
be no improvement upon the preced
ing one. .Such a crisis might be
tided over by a caucus of the vic
torious parly after the battle decid
ing upon a definite policy of admin
istrative reform to which they would
exact a pledge of adhciion from the
now Ministry in return for their sup
port. Mut would it not, be most im
politic, as well as iimiMial, to have
a political platform framed at such
a season? Especially in a situation
like that in which this country now
is, when radical reform-, in system
as well as method are deemed by
most thoughtful observers to be
necessary in the economy of affair-,
for the halvation of the country.
Were a stand uiatle for such reforms
'under the circumstances described,
could those making it not justly be
asked by what nuthoiity they acted,
and where was the evidence that the
people desired anything like what
was demanded? No: rather let a
convention of the patriotic elements
of the nation be held now, nnd the
lines (if battle drawn, and arrange
1 incuts set on foot for conducting a
thorough and vigorous campaign for
the ensuing two years among tho
electors of every .-.perch and all
classes. The grand aim should be
the establishment of the nation up
on popular constitutional models,
and not a mere patching of the
fences of a big plantation.
VARY OUR PRODUCTS.
That portion of our little country
which is productive of exportable
', produce is mostly taken up by sugar
and rice plantations. The low,
marshy swamps, that were covered
with bulrushes, arc now green with
rice crops. The higher and dryer
lands are covered with sugar-cane.
Ilicc cultivation being almost exclu
sively carried on by Chinamen, a
good crop or a poor one, high prices i
or low prices, have comparatively '
little effect ttpoti that part of the '
community made up of other nation
alities. The American, the Europe
an, and the llawnilan, with the
exception of a few wholesale traders
and a limited number of others,
depend entirely, either directly or
indirectly, on sugar. A good crop
and high prices mean prosperity for
the planter ami circulation of money
among business people, mechanics,
and the people generally. Depres
sion in sugar means depression
among planters and scarcity of
money in tin; community. It is a
great pity that it is so. How much
nutter for the country if, instead of
so large an acreage of sugar-cane, a
portion of the land were occupied
with coffee plantations, mulberry
tree for silk culture, olive.yards,
vineyard's, arrow-root fields, etc.
Not only should wo be in a moic
independent position, but the abori
ginal inhabitants of the country
would bo furnished with occupations
more congenial to their tastes. If
the present unremuncrativc slate of
the sugar market lias the effect of
bringing about a diversity in our
products, good will come out of the
evil, and the country will benefit in
The acacia tree is blamed m some
parts of the Pacific Coast with liar
boring the .scale bug. Many trees
are probably chargeable with the
same crime in icspect to various
pests of vegetation. Instead of con
demning them for it, however, per
haps a dab of tar about their trunks
would purge their guilt.
If anything should stir up the
patriotism of the Chinese in the
trouble from France, it is the noble
conduct of the Empress in devoting
half her jewels to the defence fund.
Her heroic action ought to make her
countrymen begin to set value upon
the gentle cox, and cause them for
some lime to come to rejoice over
girl babies to be called by the name
of Her Imperial Majesty.
" Fair trade," allan protection,
bobbed up in a recent session of the
Dritish House of Commons, when it
was pointed out by some members
that Ilritisli trade and industry were
suffering from the competition of
protected countries. They should have
shown tho cause of the great com
mercial and industrial depressions in
protected countries every time their
own country suffers in the same way.
Recent accounts from London are
to the effect that Sir F. Dillon Hell,
Agent-General for New Zealand, is
urging on the Foreign Olllce the
annexation of the island of L'apa,
in view of tho approaching comple
tion of the Panama Canal, in order
to command the outlet to that thor
oughfare and thus preserve unbroken
the chain of communication by that
route wilii the Australasian Colonies.
A HAWAIIAN ROMANCE.
We clip from tho Dally Alta of
October 27th the following, which
was related by tho second mate of
the -cliooncr Premier which went
ashore at Fanuing's Island: "The
Premier left. Eureka, Humboldt
county, some time in 188!), with a
cargo of redwood, which she dis
charged at Sydney. On the 2ith of
.lanuary of the present year she
sailed from Newcastle, X. S. Y.,
loaded with .'l.r)0 toim of coal, to bo
landed at Eureka. On March 11th
it was discovered that she had sprung
a leak. For twenty-two days wc
worked liko madmen, scared' taking
time to eat of our poor and meagre
rations. One day while drifting
about we sighted what wo supposed
to be an island, but upon coming
nearer wo discovered that it was
nothing but a barren rock. With
saddened hearts we tacked about in
another direction. On the twenty-
second day after wo discovered the
leak we saw ahead of us what looked i
to be ipiitc a largo piece of land. '
When about entering a harbor we
struck upon a coral reef. We were
at onco discovered by natives of
jt t 1 i -i it.
the island, and upon making inquiry
were told that wc were In English
n.i iin .... -r, .
Harbor, a little inlet in Fanning
Island. Tliis Island is n good many I
miles south of the Hawaiian Islands,
and is owned by a Scotchman named
Oreggj who was shipwrecked about
twenty - thrco years ago, and who
found his wav to that place. lie
married a native woman, and has ,
had seven cliildicn by her. One Is;
a beautiful girl of seventeen years, j
.She was educated at the Sandwich
Islands, and has traveled extensively
in Europe and the Tinted Slates.
She seems to like her island home.
In fact, she has often told me that
she would not exchange it for any
oilier in tho world. One day whilst
Captain Gregg was on his way to
Honolulu, the first mate of the
Premier, who had been making love
in a surreptitious fashion to this
daughter of the sea, proposed to her,
was accepted, and in the presence
of all of the inhabitants of the island
they consented to take eaeli other as
husband and wife, with a proviso on
the the part of the young woman that
mate would never return to his native
country to live. Fanning' Island
is nearly seven miles long and about
four in width. There is much guano
upon it. and cocoanuts and bananas
nicalso abundant. Captain Gregg
is the possessor Of considerable
wealth, acquired through the sale of
cobra and guano. There are a
number of chickens upon the island,
as well as goats and milch cows.
Captain Gregg is the owner of a nice
bark, which he uses to ply between
his place and ihe Sandwich Islands.
He was exticmcly kind to us, and, I
must say, has but one fault.
After wc ran upon the reef it was
necessary to get rid of our cargo,
which wc did, with tho assistance of
the uatives, and that's saved, at any
rate. Wc remained upon Eanning's
Island for about six months. On
the 11th of September the Malolo
stopped there for a cargo of cobra.
On the Kith she went to Washington
Island, returned to Tanning's Island,
and left there with tho crew of the
Premier on the 25th, that is all save
the (irstinatc, who remained to pursue
his honeymoon and look after the
