THE ANNUAL MESSAGE.
Ily the last mail wo have Presi
dent Arthur's message to Congress.
The opening paragraph mentions
with praise the good temper, love, of
order and loyalty to law, of the
American citizen, as illustrated in
the late Presidential contest. At
tention is recalled to the grave im
portance of providing more precise
and definite regulation for counting
the electoral vote. Relations with
all foreign powers arc slated .as con
tinuing to be amicable. A treaty of
mutual protection to citizens of
cither country in the other's terri
tory, and u trademark treaty, had
been concluded with liclgium. The
negotiation of a treaty with Chile,
to adjust claims of American citi
zens for ftijury sustained through
the war between Chile and Peru,
would soon bo negotiated. The hos
tilities between France and China
are embarrassing the Eastern rela
tions of the country. The Chinese
Government has promptly paid
the claims of American citizens
whose property was destroyed at
the recent riots at Canton. It
is anew recommended that tho
Canton fund be returned to China,
and the question is raised, whether
the statulo passed at last session,
preventing Chinese , returning to
America under certificates granted
under the old law, is not a violation
of the treaty rights of such Chinese.
A uniform rate is suggested for the
registration and documentation of
foreign-built vessels, owned by Ame
ricans and engaged in tralllc under
the American Hag between foreign
ports. The President had recognized
the Hag of the International Associa
tion of the Congo, avoiding in r.o
doing any pre-judgment of a conflict
with the territorial claims in that re
gion. He had also appointed u Com
mercial Agent for tho Congo Uasin,
and American delegates were now in
attendance at tho international con-
fcrcncc upon Congo matters in Her
I'm. The acquisition of American
Legation premises in Corca, Japan,
China and Persia is advised, and the
presentation of valuable premises
by the Sultan of Morocco and the
Siamese Government, in their res
pective countries, is acknowledged.
Tho restitution of the Agency and
Consulate General at Cairo is ad
vised, as the failure of Congress to
provide for representation at tiic
Autonomous Court of the Khedive
seriously embarrasses American in
tercourse with Egypt. Congress is
asked to assist in providing a pedes
tal for the Uartlioldi statue of " Li
berty Enlightening the World," for
New York harbor, and thus rccipro
cato the spirit in which Franco had
proffered tho gift. Relations wjth
Germany are cordial, and it is re
commended that negotiations be
begun for an extradition treaty with
tho whole Empire, in place of the
separate ones now existing with
different German States. It affords
tho President " pleasure to say that
our intercourse with Great Rritain
continues to bo of a most friendly
chnractcr." Then comes tho para
graph relating to Hawaii, which
wo gavo yesterday, as follows:
" Tho Government of Hawaii has in
dicated its willingness to contiuuo for
soven years tho provisions of the ex-
isling Reciprocity Tieaty. Such con
tinuance, in view of tho relations
of that country with tho American
.system of Slates, should, in my
judgment, bo favored." The neu
trality laws 'had been successfully
enforced during the recent revolu
tion in Hayti. Various European
Governments, especially that of
Italy, had displayed anxiety for Ihc
abolition of American import duties
upon works of art. A continuation
of the discrimination in favor of tho
work of American artists abroad
might, as some of the Inllcr feared,
result " in tho piaclical exclusion of
our painters and sculptors from the
rich Holds for observation, study and
labor which they have hitherto en
joyed." The prospect is announced
that the long-pending revision of tho
foreign treaties of Japan may bo
concluded at a new conference to bo
held at Tokio. Tho Reciprocity
Treaty with Mexico is commended
as one of the first objects for the
attention of Congress. One of the
most important subjects of the
message is the Nicaragua Canal, and
we give the reference to that in
"With the Republic of Nicaragua a
treaty has been concluded which
authorizes tho construction, by tlio
United States, of u canal, railway
and telegraph "line, across the
Nicaraguan territory. Ry the terms
of this treaty sixty miles of the river
San Juan, as well as Lako Nicaragua,
an. inland sea, forty miles in width,
aro to constitute a part of the pro
jected enterprises. This convoys, for
actual canal construction, seventeen
miles on the Pacific side and thirty
sis miles on the Atlantic to the
United Stales, whose rich territory
on the Pacific is, for the ordinary
purposes of commerce, practically cut
off from communication by water
with the Atlantic ports. The polit
ical and commercial advantages of
such a project can scarcely be over
estimated. It is believed that when
the treaty is laid before you, the
justice and liberality of its provisions
will command universal approval at
home and abroad.
The remainder of tiiis abstract
will appear to-morrow.
That hard times cannot dry up
the milk of human kindness in Hono
lulu, is illustrated by the considerate
action of the community in making
some degree of reparation to Mr.
McGuirc for his recent heavy loss
The unlawful practice of leaving
horses unfastened nml unattended
on tho street should lie put down
with n strong hand. It is fraught
with peril to the lives and limbs of
the public, and with danger to pro
perty. If tho police; wore less sleepy,
the evil could be suppressed very
quickly. A sullleicnt number of
examples could be made in the Police
Court on any day to have at least a
week's wholesome effect. Then tho
operation could be repeated, and the
next interval of general good be
havior would doubtless be longer.
The cowardly attempt of a young
money aristocrat to murder an editor
iu San Francisco has called out a
widespread expression of opinion on
tho Pacific Coast against that mode
of replying to attacks of newspapers
upon persons whose actions aro
legitimate mailers of public criticism.
It is to be hoped the wealth of the
culprit's family in that caso will not
prevent full justice being meted out
for whatever degree of crime evejits
may determine the act to be. The
tyranny of wealth is bad enough,
but if murder is to be allied to it
with impunity, Nihilism will have at
least one justification.

In a leader the editors give a brief
outline of what their efforts for the

taken place in the title page, which
is somewhat of an improvement, and
no doubt the editors will find it so
financially. The whole number is
full of varied and interesting matter.
