A previous article closed with the
proposition that this country must
breed the statesmen it needs to
guide it to a position of true and
stable nationality. It is not, neces
sarily, that a selection of likely
youngsters should be made, to have
hound down to the study of state
craft in all its branches. What is
meant is that whatever of statesman
like virtue and genius we may have,
latent or applied to little purpose, in
the mature manhood of the renlm,
should be brought out nnd developed,
and the means to lie adopted to that
end will also he found to work in
nourishing patriotism and capacity
for national citizenship in the young
blood of the Islands. Although we
gave a tacit assent to the Arabian
cavalier, " Antlsliamtis," when he
said that business success, did not
imply statesnianlikc ability, yet we
could never believe that business
capacity was a bar to eligibility for
governing. It is the pride of all
free, constitutionally-governed na
tions that the high privileges of
commanding station me within the
reach of the fittest to win . the prize,
whatever their genealogy. To go
back to it point noticed in the pre
vjotis nrliclo referred to, for a
moment, we should regard reliance
upon exolin ulatp.smansliip that is,
specially imported for lite regener
ation of the country as justifiable
only to lite extent of a very excep
tional and temporary expedient. As
a permanent order of things, nothing
would be more calculale'd to quench
tlic national feeling that is now one
of the most serious lacks of the
To produce statesmen from the
material at hand, it is necessary,
above nil, that llteiu be generated
the air in which patriotism will
thrive ait nil pervading atmosphere
of national life. Unless the watch
word of independent political thought
and action be " Hawaii first, last
and all the time," there is not much
hope for nn effective fusion of the
belter elements of the community,
to bring about u nationality under
which all legitimate interests will
have equal consideration, be in
harmony with each other and have
the fuvor of nil the conditions of
healtliy development which the land
can afford. The giving of their
adopted country their best thought,
the making of its broadest welfare
their primary aim and the doing
.sacrifice of their powers continually
in its service, comptiso but the rea
sonable duty of foreign citizens nnd
residents, whether their sojourn be
long or short. The .sentiment yield
ing such fruits must be cultivated as
a matter of duty, for national spirit
cannot spring spontaneously in the
breast of one who cannot say, "Tins
is my own. my native land." That
it is a duty for every man to identify
himself with the welfare of the coun
try where he makes a living and
seeks :i competence- is a proposition
that no right-minded person will
need to have demonstrated to liitn.
Not merely that lie should bestow
incidental benefit upon the country
by investing hi capital, displaying
ids enterprise and expending bis
energies in its material development
for his own sake, but that he sliould
be over, while in the country, actively
alive to its every higher interest
moral, social and political.
This matter is, we believe, one in
which the country has been at a
serious disadvantage in the past,
and one in which its true frieds have
as needful a field for their improving
efforts as there is in the whole
domain. The members of the com
munity whose eyes wander abroad
at the thought of home have been
exceedingly generous in their bene
factions to praiseworthy objects the
stistcntation of good works, the
relief of distress and the promotion
of intelligence and taste but for
the most part the gifts have been,
after all, devoted more to the im
provement of the society in which
the benefactors themselves moved
than to the general elevation and
advancement of the whole nation.
How is that debating society com
ing on? The most favorable season
for evening meetings is passing
The police justice does well in
indicting a heavy penalty for the
offence of carrying'a deadly weapon.
A highway robbery at the point of
the pistol, in a not unfrequented
.street the other day, shows the
danger to society of the- practice
being allowed to grow.
It is to be hoped the signification
of the motto gracing the portals of
the Survey Department" Increase!

land is to be meted out by the sur
veyors as homesteads of industrious
people, rather than as endowments
of land-grabbers and speculators,

Woman's Tribune, under the head- I tions has received some very severe
iilg, "Silk Culture Woman's Work."
It shows that the cultnro of silk
cocoons is a very simple industry,
apparently requiring less care than
beekeeping. "The work is light,"
says the writer; "the crippled, the
old and tho young can attend to it
and make it profitable." The osage
leaves arc said to produce belter silk
than those of tiie mulberry, but the
latter are more suitable in higher
lntitudea on account of supciior
hardiness to cold. If wc had that

account of the extraordinary shoot
ing abilities displayed by Messrs.
Cartwriglit and Spalding during
their hunting expedition of last
Monday, and what a great contrast
were the results of the other party
of live sportsmen, who, poor men, as
your notice states, wcte able to kill
only b'G ducks. Really it was hard
lines, when, as we read, tiie two
foimer gentlemen bagged the un
precedented number of 108 plover
(poor little birds), six ducks, and
one mallard. Marvel, gentlemen
sportsmen of Honolulu, at such a
wonderful feat, and then think of
being able to kill a mallard ! Though
everybody ,has heard from Mr.
Cartwriglit of his great skill in
shooting, to hear that he lias killed
the first mallard makes, I might say,
one fairly overflow with admiration,
especially when the writer's patty
brought back with them a brace of
the same kind and, further, Mr. II.

several last season.

Kiutoi: 11l'.m:tin : From the
hearty commendation our books(The
People's Cyclopedia of Universal
Knowledge and the Liquor Problem
of all Ages) have received from those
to whom they have been delivered
and the increased demand for them
the deliveries have made. I feel as
sured that many others will bo glad
to procure them. At my eatliest con
venience, therefore, I will call on
the fn.iiilic- of Honolulu generally
that they may have an opportunity
to procure them. Those that do not
want to buy them may be assured 1
will have no unpleasant feeling
toward them. All persons arc not
expected to buy goods offered them,
however desirable they may be.
An eminent writer lias said : " He
that furnishes the people good books
docs them more valuable service
than the grocer or merchant that
sell them goods over the counter.
The latter supplies only the coarser
wants ; the former ministers to the
higher cravings of the mind and
soul, which are immortal."

THE CREAT POLITICAL SUPERSTITION.
KoiTOit I5i;i,i.i:ti.v: A good many
years have elapsed since the late
I'rince Consort of England, Albert
the flood, startled a number of
steady-going people by declaring
that parliamentary institutions were
on their trial. Rugged Thomas Car
lylo had previously lunged at them
witli the clayniorp of his trenchant
ridicule, and had invited the wor
shippers of "government by pala
ver" to ponder seriously on the
spectacle of "six hundred and fifty
eight miscellaneous persons set to
consult about 'business,' with
twenty-seven millions, mostly fools,
assiduously listening to them and
I checking them
! them;" and to
whether "thoro ever was, since the
world began, or there over will be,
till the world end, nny 'business'
accomplished in these circuin-
ininy-iour years ago
shock'S) 'and Mr. Herbert Spencer's
assault on them in a Into number of
the Contemporary llcview, wherein
he says that "tho great political
superstition of tho present is the
divine right of Tarllaments," is
likely to command tho sympathy
and receive tho support of thou
sands of intelligent men and wo
men, who will applaud the conclu
sion lie has arrived at, that "the
function of true liberalism in the
future will be Unit of putting a limit
to tho powers of parliaments."
And eventually so complex and
clumsy a piece of machinery will be
superseded by something much sim
pler and more clllcicnt, for all gov
erning institutions grow out of the
wants and ciicumstanccs of society
for the time being. Representative
institutions supplanted onc-inan rule
and have done good work in their
day, but they will, like many other
tilings, become obsolete. The good
sense of civilized mankind in tho
twentieth century is not likely to
tolerate so "ugly an exhibition of
human stupidity," to quote again
the words of Carlylc, as that which
is presented by so many legislatures
of modern times ; and a generation
which crowds the activity of years
into a single mouth and economizes
time by every scientific agency avail
able will insist on abolishing that
awful waste of it which occurs in
"government by palaver." Just
look at yuv own legislature's last
record ninety-six, (?) days con
sumed in passing fifty-four ( ?) laws
at an expense of 35,000 (V) which
if properly prepared could have
been passed in onc-fourlli of the
time. And then not even one of
those was of such a pressing nature
as to have caused great grief if it
had never seen lite light, and all
told they certainly are not wortli
one-tenth of the cost. The heat of
tiie battle is over, the Legislature is
over now and people can look at
matters calmly and wc would advise
all sensible people to ponder over
this aspect of the question and con
sider what steps should be. taken to
meet tho dilllculty. Wc should not
wait to follow slavishly in the foot
steps of older and larger States, for
our circumstances are probably
unique in tho history of the globe,
and if we do not act for ourselves
we bhall be probably as badly off
in the future as we are -now.
