In a recent discussion with a cor

material for statesmen, we said
distinctly that it was not necessary
to wait until a new generation should

we could Jiavc the country wett
govcrncd. A contcmiiorary, assum--"
ing that we had said the very con
trary, proceeded to talk as if only
the most, ordinary qualifications of
business men were requisite to the
proper management of national
affairs. That is a grand mistake,
one common in the rawest slagC3 of
a young nation's life, and one to
which is due the host of small people
in juvenile stales who aspire to rule.
Each depaitmcnl of government
calls for qualities of statesmanship
peculiar to itself. The master spirit
of every government requires to lie
a person with a comprehensive
knowledge of affairs in all depart
ments, as one mind should outline
and direct the general policy of an
administration. Moreover, unless
the premier has a grasp of the
several divisions of government, he
cannot know the degiec of fitness of
his colleagues for their respective
positions. In the American repub
lican system, (he 1'iesident is at
once the chief executive officer and
tlio representative of national public
opinion. As the latter he properly
has the power of selecting the min
istry. In the English constitutional
monarchical system, the sovereign
selects as iir3t minister the leading
leprcsentative of dominant public
opinion, and the first minister then
selects his own colleagues. "While
the ministry so formed holds the
confidence of the legislature, the
premier will not ictaiii in the cabinet
for a day n colleague who dissents
from him in any particular of policy.
At the same time lie has to answer
to, the legislature for every cltango
in the cabinet. Thus, while one
,mind controls the direction of all
affairs, that mind must be in accord
with public opinion as represented
in the legislatutc. In somewhat
similar manner the policy of N the
President, the controlling mind of
American affairs, is amenable to the
approval or disapproval of the legis
lature. There is this difference,

lish system, docs not a moment's con
sldcialiou lead to tho conviction that
a very high . order of nbilitlcs is re
quired in those who shall mlo? It
is not merely the raising and ex
pending of a million or two dollais
of lcvciuie,-requiring only qualifica
tions necessary for discharging nn
equal financial responsibility in a
commercial house, which foim, as
some say, tho solo functions of our
statesmen. Comparing the national
business to tho concerns of a mer
cantile establishment, tlio parallol
cannot bo carried far. Connncicois
comnieice all the woild over "Ruy
cheap and sell dear," its motto.
Government is another thing, and
although its principles may be of
universal applicability, its methods
must be determined by conditions of
location, physical peculiarities, popu
lation, 'stage of industiial develop
ment and period of existence. Every
body must admit that in all of these
respects this kingdom is unique. It
cannot, thcicforc, be raised to the
national position it is capable of
occupying, and which wu can hope
it may reach, by a blind following of
other nations in every line of admin
istration. Above all, every patiiot
must frown upon yes, lcsisttothc

demagogucry and tiickcry of small
politicians, by which the nation may
be preyed upon and kept in servi

At the head of affairs thcro must
be mastcily originality, creative
genius and capacity for adapting
foreign experience of the past and
present to the conditions and the
necessities of this country. Withal
the place and the times demand the
most consummate ability, joined
with the highest intcgiity and the
qualities above named, to mould
men's minds ; to instruct those who
lack knowledge in the principles of
government and the rights of man ;
to organize, discipline and lead men
on to the goal of free and intelligent
citizenship. Who is sulllcicnt for
thcae things, and how is the ideal of
statesmanship in this little realm to
bo realized? These arc questions
that should command the immediate
attention of every well-wisher of the
Probably no paper has shown so
clearly, conclusively, and fully the
mutual benefits to the great Repub
lic and this little kingdom of the
Hccrnrp'city Treaty, as the San
Franckco Merchant. The subject
has been investigated and elucidated
with a patience, persistence, and
thoroughness characteristic of that
paper's present management. Empty
declamation and unsupported asser
tions have been substituted by un
deniable facts and unanswerable
figures. Wo know of no shorter,
better, or less expensive method of
enlightening members ofCongrcss
and others on tlio good effects, to
both countries, of the treaty, than
by collecting and printing in pamph
let form the Merchant's able and
exhaustive articles on the subject,

The number of runaways on the
streets of Honolulu is startling. If
the evil were not to some extent pic
venliblc, tho public could resignedly
accept the law of sclf-ptcservation
every man take care of himself. A
stiict enforcement of the rule, "No
licensed liorso and carriage must bo
left without a proper attendant, or
propei Iy bceurcd," would do much
to mitigate the nuisance. Another
rule is required, that all carriages
must carry a hamper of suitable
weight to restrain the liorso whenever
left standing, where thcro is nothing
to hitch to. Still another, that ex
cept on licensed carriage stands, no
liorso or vehicle shall be allowed to
stand on the btrect nt any ono point
more than tcn'minutcs at ti time, nor
a saddle horse to be hitched so ns
to obstruct tlio sidewalk in any way
he may move.
