THE SCIENCE OF GOVERNMENT.
Our Arab friend " AntKliainus"
makes some fierce thrusts at the
presumptuous people who seem to
think that it is us easy to rule :i
nation of freemen as to roll off n
log, and that hticucs in private busi
ness iisurch success in public af
fairs. As ti child of Ishtnael we
should expect to llnd our corres
pondent's hand against every man,
but in .this ciyo he appears to speak
from the plenitude of ids Oriental
wisdom and not simply according
to his inherited instincts of univer
sal belligerency. His sentiments
are worthy of being impressed
deeply upon the minds of all deni
zens of this Kingdom, who, front
their intelligence, uprightness,
thouglitfulness and sincerity, may
bo regarded as tho salt of tho state.
He may be too sweeping in ids
ruling out of every man in the
country from the competency of
formulating ti comprehensive nation
til policy. Probably it is seeking
too much to look for a single man of
such versatile statesmanship In such
a community of shop-keepers and '
agriculturists, when countries having
a. crystallized development of ages '
can scarcely llnd such n man. It is I
seldom that :i master of national
finance, so eminent in that line as to
be recognized as such by opponents
ns well as supporters, is not found
dellcient in other requisites for the
successful leadership and direction
of a nation, Mr. Gladstone, perhaps,
more than any other living states
man, is eminent in almost every
department of administration be
sides being undoubtedly the greatest
popular leader of the age. We are
not with those who would hastily
judge by the small population to be
governed in these Islands, and as
sert that no more statesmanship is
needed than would bo requisite to
manage u second-rate city in Ame
rica or Europe. On the contrary,
we should rather regard the national
perils to bo guarded against liy en
lightened, judicious and practiced
statesmanship as being, from all the
conditions of the case, in .inverse
latio to both territory and popula
tion. The conditions referred to ns
contributing to make the problem of
government of this group peculiarly
a dilllcult one comprise: scattered
territory : diversity of races ; chang
ing population ; want of born patriot
ism in a large proportion of resi
dents of civilized ancestry and in
stincts ; lack of equilibrium between
a few interests that have got the
start in tilings material and all
others (fortunately, however, those
preponderating interests arc at pre
sent actively alive to tho importance
of diversifying industry and multi
plying sources of wealth) ; a geogra
phical position which is isolated and
yet so important strategetically and
(yunincrcially as 1o make the coun
try a tempting morsel to the land
hunger of the great Towers (the
danger of which is, however, only
likely to bo vital in the event of
possible desperate war between cer
tain of the Powers).
AVhal is to be done, if statesmen
are not here, ready-made, to under
take and master the dilllcult task of
guiding the country on to the goal
of true and stable nationality? Im
port them? Thcro are many who
favor doing so. But where arc we
to obtain the article ; who is to make
the selection for it must take a
statesman to catch a statesman, and
what assurance have we that the im
portation will come up to its descrip
tion in the invoice? It would cer
tainly seem more feasible and pro
mising to import expert help in the
details of state administration, while
the broad outlines of what is needed
to be done were sketched by men
having ample knowledge by experi
ence of tho country's conditions and
circumstances. The men just men
tioned ate therefore what is within
present practical quest, and how are
we to get them? We should answer,
leaving elaboration for succeeding
discussion, lly breeding them. At
the recent planters' convention it
was elicited that if the country was
to have good horses and cattle they
must lie bred upon the soil. So wc
believe that our statesmen must bo
to the manner bred, and all the
better if they arc born to it.
Neither invitation, ticket nor
badge was issued to the members of
the press by tho managers of Mon
day's regatta. This unusual neglect,
perhaps, will not prevent somo in
terested in tho affair from carping
at inaccuracies they may dis
cover in the published reports.
Notwithstanding our staff was tints
thrown upon personal resources to
get round in gathering information
of the various events of the day, wo
arc not at all ashamed of the full
report given our readers tcstcrday.
People are wondering what tho
Saturday 'reus meant in its lecture
to its contemporaries upon undue
commont upon the late tragedy. Tho
only objectionable editorial comment
wc have seen in the l natter was tho
above-named paper's attempt to
make Mr. Gibson responsible for tho
lynching demonstrations which he, so
maufully checked. Tliero has not
been a Hue of comment in auy edi
torial uttcranco that wo have seen
which was calculated, lu the least
degree, to clnunrfnBB the otitis of
justice. Indeed) the story of tho
tragedy has been left partially untold
by this paper, to savo tho feelings of
respcctablo connections of tho par
ticipants, and this is the first editor
ial utterance wc have made in con
nection with the deplorable affair.
The Advertiser, in its leading
article this morning, scolds those
citizens who were conspicuous by
their absence from His Majesty's
reception. It goes to the length of
advising the King to retaliate by
ostracizing the delinquents in future
Palace hospitalities. The article is
calculated to aggravate whatover
estrangement may havo had to do
with the absenteeism referred to.
Hotter advice to His Majesty would
have been for him to diligently
seek for the cause of large
proportion of leading citizens neg
lecting the usual paying of court on
his birthday, and be so guided by
the results of investigation as to
make a similar slight in the future
disgraceful. While believing that it
is impolitic to visit disaffection to
ward the present administration
upon tho Sovereign, wc regard the
article in the Advertiser, which was
doubtless suggested in the interests
of the Ministry, to be a much more
serious indignity toward His Ma
jesty than oven the withholding of u
birthday compliment, as it tries to
blind him to the fact that so far as
there has been a- slight it must have
been intended for their correction
rather than his.
It is earnestly to be hoped that
Mrs. Lcavitt may accomplish some
good in the way of promoting so
briety here. This is one of the
greatest drinking towns in Christen
dom, whatever clackcrs of the liquor
trafllc may say to the contrary. If
the work of reformation is to be
chielly delegated to professional
temperance reformers from abroad,
however, wc are not sanguine of
results. The best Mrs. Lcavitt and
Mrs. llampson can do in that direc
tion is to awaken a sense of respon
sibility in the minds of our own
THE STUFF OF WHICH STATESMEN
Enrroii lin.Mvns: The tail end
of your article ubout "the duty of
the hour" has a smack of the desert
about it : it just suits my taste, and
sets me to scribbling an At all's view
of the situation. "The grand aim
should be the establishment of the
nation upon popular constitutional
models, and not a mere patching of
the fences of a big plantation."
Tight you are. When has this
country ever been managed by its
responsible rulers as u nation? Never,
since the days of old Dr. Hutchin
son. It has simply been run as a
big plantation, and not a very big
one at that. Now and then a bit of
tiddlo-winking fence-patching has
been done; but anything in anyway
resembling an enlightened, common
sense, comprehensive, dcllnite, states
manlike national policy lias never
once found place on a ministerial
programme for the last ten or dozen
years. I seriously doubt if this
entire very much mixed community
can produce a single man who
knows enough of statesmanship to
formulate a policy adapted to n little
Kingdom whoso geographical posi
tion encourages it to hope for a big
future. I do, indeed. If there be
such a man within Hawaiian borders,
he undoubtedly has never reached a J
Tho papers say that the country
has any quantity of ilrst-class men,
competent to govern any country
under the sun, if the King would
onty give them a chance to tr' their
hands. Glad to hear it; but the
atrocious Arab would like to examine
their credentials. Oh! Business
men thorough business men are
the men to nuvigato the Ship of
State. Indeed ! What docs a lands
man know of navigation? Not a bit
more than n Bailor understands of
steering ail ox-cart. Wlioover heard
of business men being the right class
of people to conduct the affairs of a
nation, however small? In tho
desert we are taught that the train
ing and ability of the business man
lies in tho direction of buying cheap
and selling dear, lliat if ho succeeds
he is called n "successful mer
chant," and if he fails he is marked
as a " no business man." Now, Mr.
Editor, is It tcftsoilalilo to suppose
that men who have been accustomed
all their life to haildlo bn-on and
canned fruit, or measure yards of
calico, or import bales of merchan
dise and export bags of sugar, or
count dollars and dimes over a
counter, or keep a set of books and
make out periodical balance-sheets,
however expert in their own special
line, are exactly the stamp of per
sons qualified by nature or education
to be entrusted with the functions
of Government? No, sir. Their
antecedents should exclude them
peremptorily from the affairs of
State ; for this reason, that although
they mav be very excellent and
praiseworthy persons in their own
particular calling, they cannot have
had any previous acquaintance with
tho business of State affairs.
In Europe, those who govern arc
brought up to the trade. At school,
in their own homes, in society, and
in subordinate otllccs, they learn the
business involuntarily by mixing
with thosc.who make it the faculty of
their lives, so that a large class arc,
so to say, to the manner born. If
not great proficients, they under
stand the principles of the science,
and arc experts in the practice.
Above all, they understand the rules
of the service, and adhere strictly to
the code of honor which distinguishes
a certain grauo ol men, and is ad
mitted to be indispensable in diplo
If Hawaii had been fortunately
governed by men understanding the
principles and trained in the practice
of government, and withal guided
by the instincts of honor and patriot
ism, how much better would it have
been for her to-day I I prefer the
services of a mechanic who knows
something of his trade, and if it were
left to me to choose an Executive 1
should probably select men who had
been accustomed from their youth to
the society of statesmen and the
transaction of public duties. If
these were not to be had, I would
accept in their place men of intelli
gence, education, high character,
experience of the world, and with
that measure of public estimation
for honor and generosity of feeling
which marks one of nature's gentle
men, though he were born in a taro
patch and his father sent to the reef
for larceny. A mere name and
family connections go for nothing
willi me. Glittering decorations and
big titles havo no importance in the
eyc of an Arab, and lie sets small
value on men who carry bureaucratic
portfolios when they arc better fitted
to carry brown paper parcels, and
stand proudly before the country
instead of properly behind the
counter. The saity bleu of the desert
lias, however, one weakness which
neither time nor circumstances can
eradicate a desire that all places
and positions of trust and iionor
should be occupied by men to whom
tho principles of government arc in
telligible and the principles of gen
tlemen sacred. I care little for the
precedence supposed to attach to a
long line of ancestry, and less still
for the claims of wealth, satisfied
that neither of these can confer
character or ability; whilst highly
esteeming the honest sou of nobody,
whose word is as good as his bond
nud whose mind is uncontaminatcd.

True taste is an excellent econo
