ROYALTY IN IRELAND.
It was certainly good policy for
the Prince of Wales to visit Ireland.
Irishmen have been given too much
cause of feeling that their island was
only n dcpcndcnc3r, instead of an
integral part, of the Empire. In the
name by which the United Kingdom
goes " Great Britain und Ireland"
the conjunction sticks in the sen
sitive Hibernian's throat. It is in
the Celt's nature to have a chief to
look up to and fight for, and if the
reigning family of England docs not
give Irishmen a chance now and
then to do homage to it, then they
will find objects of fealty with a
stake in the old sod, who arc scarce
ly less willing lords than they vas
sals. Scarcely less willing, because
'there is a point a fatal point be
yond which the prudent Irish leader
will not go. When that point is
reached, the leader who oversteps it
imperils his neck for treason, while
the one who pauses there risks being
regarded as a traitor to his own
people. Many of Ireland's moit
fervid patriots have been pushed on
to the scaffold by their countrymen
whose heat of head only exceeded
their -warmth of heart. It was at
that point that O'Conncll paused,
and incurred the resentment of his
"nation" which broke his heart.
There it is that Parncll now "stands
shivering on the brink, while some
are crossing over " to the shore of
sedition to be hunted by the English
Queen Victoria goes annually to
Scotland, wheio she has a residence,
and the waim interest she takes on
every visit in the welfare of the
Highland peasantry doubtless is one
. of the chief icasoiis for the remark
able loyalty of the Scotch people.
Ireland has been, we might almost
say, shamefully neglected by the
Sovereign and the Royal Family.
The very cordial and loyal reception
the Heir Apparent is receiving right
in the hcuit of tho reputed Irish
disaffection must cause some twinges
of royal rcmorbc that this is tho first
opportunity, for nearly an age, that
Celtic loyal devotion has been given
to manifest ilbclf. face to face with
legal personages. Tho last steamer
brings further news of the royal
party's tour, showing that the Kings
town and Dublin ovations have been
repeated at every place since visited.
A Dtibliu despatch of April Hth is
"The Prince and Princess of
Wales on their way to Cork to-day
received an enthusiastic reception.
At Lismore, in the counties of Cork
ami Waterfoid, 300 laborers pic
sented au address of welcome. At
Dungnvvan, when the train bearing
the royal party passed, all the ves
sels in the bay lowcicd their flags.
At Kilmathemns, when the loyal
party went by, a black flag was
hoisted over Temperance hill, but
the loyalists made good demonstra
tions. The prince and princess then
went to Carrnghmorc. In Cork
most of the streets were spanned by
triumphal arches, and a majority of
the houses were adorned with Hags
in honor of the advent of the royal
Among the few undesirable epi
sodes of the tour, a somewhat ludi
crous one is the exhibition the
Nationalist Lord Mayor of Dublin,
John O'Connor, made of himself.
In our summary the other day it was
told how he had been hissed when
riding along in the state procession
during the royal entry. A similar
scene occurred when the party was
leaving Dublin. The Lord Mayor
happened to drive past the City Hall
a few minutes before the royal car
riage appealed. He was recognized
and savagely hissed, whereat he flew
into a violent passion, which only
made his enemies more demonstra
tive in their derisive greetings. We
quota a despatch:
"The Lord Mayor, unable to
withstand the storm any longer,
stopped his carriage, and, mounting
the City Hall steps, called for cheers
for Parncll. The response was not
great and did not indicate that
O'Connor had any great number of
sympathizers in the assemblage. He
then addressed the Catherine ami
told them that they would be sorry
for having hissed him. Ho said he
would telegraph Parncll at Cork an
account of what had occurred in
Dublin, and they would see what the
result would be. Soon after this the
Prince and Princess of Wales were
driven past tho City Hall. On their
way to the railway station they were
greeted with tumultuous and pro
It is little wonder such a man
should be held 111 contempt, who was
willing to parade in official state,
while not having the moral courage
to ily a ilag from the City Hall.
MR. MARQUES ACAIN.
There is no quarrel between Mr.
Marques and this paper so far as we
know. Still we do not retract the
opinion that the tone of his last pre
vious letter was somewhat opinion
ative in excess. Let that pass, how
ever, for men of strong opinion are
perhaps not too plentiful in this
country. Thirty-five years which
he gives as the road age of Hawaii
does not take us back to very an
cient times. We know a country
where stage coaches ran hundred
mile stretches much longer ago, iu
which the stage reached by our last
Road Act has only recently been
arrived at, and is regarded as a very
progressive step. If Mr. Marques
does not see any change for the bet
ter in our roads since 1878, there
must have been a sad relapse from
that year to 1881, to offset the de
cided improvement the writer has
marked since he was set gently down
on the beach in July, 1881. How
ever, it was not upon personal ob
servation that the statement ques
tioned by our correspondent was
made, but from the testimony of
many long residents, that never
have the roads as a whole been in
better condition than now. Our
correspondent, in quoting what we
said the other day, docs us an in
justice of course inadvertently by
leaving out the qualifying words,
"in its entirety," after the word
" systom" at the close of his last
paragraph but one. His view that
money should be spent only on
"such roads as arc now good" we
hold to be untenable. All neccssnry
roads must be kept at least passable,
and in some cases it will doubtless
bo determined that a new road will
bo more economical than patching
tho old one. What kind of a policy
would it have been, for instance, to
have let Queen street and the Pa
lama road lie neglected and rugged
last year, and fritter away all avail
able funds upon making and keep
ing roads already in fair condition
as smooth as the floor of a bleating
A red-handed murderer is sup
posed to have passed through Hono

flight of such a villain might be cut

A Canadian paper says that Mr.
Elliott Anderson, Hawaiian Consul
General at the Dominion capital, has
been created Knight Commander of
tho Order of Kalakaua by the King.
At least that is what it means,
although actually it denominates the
gentleman as " Consul-General of
In this issue will be found an arti
cle from a St. Louis paper, contain
ing a somewhat crooked account of
the Bridges trial, and intimating
that the American State Department
is interfering on behalf of the con
vict. It is scarcely probable that
the United States authorities will
deem it expedient, nfter a thorough
examination of the case, to contest
the Hawaiian administration of jus
tice. Anyway, it surely cannot be
that the reported interference will
proceed while the case is not Anally
disposed of in our Supreme Courts.
1mtor Bum.ktin : 1 do not know
who is the most "opinionativc" of
the two, the editor of this paper or
myself; perhaps we both may bo
brothers in this respect. There
fore do not be surprised if 1 cannot
accept the opinion advanced in Tues
day's editorial, about the alleged
extreme youth of this country in the
question of roads. Willi all due
respect for editorial utterances this
is really, as I previously said, an
old, vexed question. It is much
lomrcr aco than you think, that
nothing more than "bridle paths
were required for highways;" and
what progress has been made can
hardly be called within "a compara
tively very short period." When I
came here in 187S, roads were al
ready, as a whole, just what they
are to-day. And certainly, most of
our residents now, do not know
that the real start in road
making on these Islands is due
let it be remembered to its
honor to the suggestions of the
first Royal Hawaiian Agricultural
Society, created in 1850. Under the
influence of Judge Lee who said in
his opening address that u tho very
first measure" needed by the
country for its improvement was
the making of "good roads and
bridges" the third resolution
adopted at the first meeting of that
useful body was: "That this so
ciety respectfully recommends to the
Legislature the adoption of efficient
measures for the improvement of the
public roads, and tiie appointment
of suitable superintendents in every
district to carry out the measures.'
As this period was the political
" golden age " of this country, the
Legislature was then only too glad
to adopt any measure calculated to
benefit the Kingdom. Foreigners
and natives were then allowed to
work in harmonious unison, and
government was not supposed to be
for the betterment of a few indivi
duals only. The necessary laws
were voted at once, and as further
the R. II. Agricultural Society made
the furtherance of road-making one
of its principal objects, surprising
results were not slow to crop out.
In June, 1853, the report of the
Committee on Roads submitted to
the society, already stated that, in
that short time, "from no roads at
all," there had been constructed 150
miles of eood carriage roads, 450
miles of bridle roads and 902 feet of
bridging. Nor did the movement
stop there, for under the earnest,
and even what was then termed
"violent" laws voted by the subse
quent legislatures, road-making grew
with wonderful rapidity. But as
early as this, traces can already be
found of the cancerous evil which
was to blight our road system, that
of making heavy work at once and
then abandoning the whole to
the mercies of the seasons. Com
plaints were already rife in 1856.
But I think Minister Wilder was
the first one to recognize offi
cially the evil and to formulate
the intention of making a radical
change of road maintenance; but
as I already stated in the Ilawaiicui,
he was, unfortunately for good
roads, dismissed before being able
to start his projected reform. How
ever, more than thirty years before
Mr. Wilder's administration much
money had been squandered away,
and shall I be deemed opinionativc to
assert that if the largo sums which
were dedicated to roads during all
those years, had been spent accord
ing to a proper combination of con
struction and maintenance, our
highways would have been in far
better condition than they arc now?
It is therefore folly to persevere in
the old error, and it is wrong for tho
Bin.nniK to advocate as it did yes
terday, that "before any system fdr
the maintenance of roads can be
adopted, a great deal moro money
must still be expended in building
This is just what, in my modest
opinionativc efforts, I aim to make
the Government avoid. Let us take
proper care, constant daily care of
such roads as arc now good, before
we throw away nny more money in
new ones, to let them run again to
waste in a short time, and before
thinking of adopting the "canton
nier" system for tho whole King
dom, let us at least have a fair trial
of it in Honolulu. A Mauques.
