A process is going on in these
Islnnds, which, if not checked and
reversed, must very soon culminate
in the Asiatic races gaining full sway
over the group. "Whether the two
great, English-speaking Towers would
allow the Orientals to hold rule for
any time, is a question that has
really little concern for Anglo-Saxons
and Hawaiian? now having their
homes here. So far as they arc con
cerned, the mischief would be done
before their natural protectors had
taken warning of their danger. Tho
whites would be driven out, the
natives crushed, by the Mongolian
invasion peaceful as a river but irre
sistible, when once let in, as the
, Pacific tide, unless self-protective
measures had been taken by this
nation itself in season. Many peo
ple will doubtless be astonished at
the rate of increase of Asiatics dur
ing the first four months of this
year. The following tables of
arrivals and departures of people
from January 1st to May 1st, of the
present year, have been published

An increased ratio of Asiatics to
whites, of over two thousand, in the
space of one-third of a year, is a
formidable showing to the disadvan
tage of the western civilization.
What is to be done about it? The
heroic remedy would be the exclu
sion of tho Orientals. That seems
entirely out of the question, how
ever. As for the Japanese, they
have come in response to our cordial
invitation, and more to follow arc
assured of a warm welcome. In
dued this clement is not feared
as is the sister race. The Japanese
give promise of assimilating them
selves to "Western ways, and being
more generous livers than the
Chinese will not give such exhaust
ing competition to whitelnbor. Their
children arc apt learners, and the
rising generation of Japanese will be,
to a large extent, users of the Eng
lish language and desirable material
for citizenship. It is a race that,
well-treated, is likely to remain iu the
country and bo subject to the order
of modern civilisation. On the other
hand, the Chinese give littlu cause
to hope that they will be, of their
own accord, anything more than
they have been rapacious, stolid,
heathenish, content with mere ani
mal existence, their very pastimes
being sordid; suckers upon a civili
zation beyond their aspirations awl
above their instincts. The excep
tions they have furnished to Ha
waiian society during all the years
since their advent only prove the
rule. They arc a people ngninst
whom civilized races coming in con
tnct with them must bo protected,
as useful vegetation has to be de
fended ngaint noxious growths,
llow fait the races trying to work
out the problem of civilization in
this Kingdom bo enabled to stand
against the Mongolian Hood?
A great deal might be done by
compelling the Chinese to conform
to civilized usages, so far as their
contrary habits arc ptejttdicial to
the public morals, health, or safoly.
Thus by an enforced lcfincmcnt, bo
fnr as it could be effected, they
would have to live less like the
beasts and so become more legiti
mate compctitots with fellow
humans. Their overcrowding of
habitations, their disposition of io
fusc, their fire-trap structures, their
gambling and other immoral prac
tices, could and should all be taken
under the strict cognizance of law.
Any laws framed for these purposes
would, of course, have to include
the whole population, and thus a
double benefit would accrue to the
community. That is, however, where
the rub conies in, for the politicians
aic so dependent upon and so solici
tous of the native vote, that it is a
matter of extreme difficulty to ob
tain the legislation necessary for
crying social reforms. It follows,
therefore, that nothing can be done
in the direction proposed until a
powerful educative agitation has
taken place among the electors, and
they arc made to realize that their
national existence depends upon
their co-operation in the means of
elevating the masses of all nation
alities to a higher civilization.

Wc believe in making commerce
as free as the air, -and could never
understand why the mercantile ma

make a port of vantage in the great

serve of tax gatherers.
An account of a new variet- of
rose came to us the other day from
the oflice of a firm holding an agency
for exotic roses. As it enmc to
hand under the printed name of the
firm in question, the description of
the flower was accepted as genuine.
It seems, however, that it was only
a joke perpetrated by a " clerklet,"
to use the Guide's apt coinage.
The Advertiser is in ecstasies over
A FREE PORT.
Editor Buu.i-.tin: Your morning
contemporary is doing a wise thing
in advocating the making of Hono
lulu a free port. Your sympathy
with the project, expressed a week
or two ago, encourages me to hopo
that you will not decline to publish
the views of ontsidcrs on the same
1 confess to a 'measure of surprise
that there should have been any
misapprehension of the meaning of
the term, as there undoubtedly has
been among merchants and others.
There is a wide distinction between
a "free port" and "free trade."
Some gentlemen here have thought
tho two terms meant the same thing,
and were interchangeable. The Ad
vertiser, however, has cleared up
this point, and has employed the
term in no other sense than the one
usually understood in other coun
tries. The petty objection to the meas
ure which I have heard talked on
the streets, that it is intended to
benefit the Oceanic Steamship Com
pany, is extremely puerile. Of
course, tt free port would b'c a benefit
to that company's vessels ; but would
it not be of equal benefit to other
companies, and to every shipowner
whose vessels enter our port ?
If not of equal benefit, certainly of
proportionate benefit. It is not pro
posed to make tho port free to one
and not to another. All ships, re
gardless of nationality and owner
ship, would have the samo privileges.
Must a common good bo rejected
because some particular person
comes in for a share? Shall I re
fuse a valuable legacy because by
my accepting it another would be
come entitled to similar good for
tune? I am not such a fool; try
It cannot be denied thnt certain
vessels -would have put in here within
a comparatively short timo past, but
did not do so because of port
charges ; awl othors have shortened
their stay, in the same period, and
for the 8ntuo reason. Sccral in
stances can be cited. This gives
ground for tho belief that many
olhcrn would gladly procure their
supplies and effect their repairs here,
Hint now go elsewhere, were tho port
charges abolished. 1 have not the
slightest doubt that our shipping
would be more than doubled in a
very short thuo, and that the loss of
the revenue to the government would
be more than offset by the gain of
trade to the people.
Editor Bulletin: An editorial
article in your "Wednesday's issue
contains the following statement:
"Universal suffrage has proved an
evil elsewhere, that would gladly be
got rid of if possible." The ques
tion of sum-age is unquestionably
oucof the dilllctilt problems that con
front statesmen in all constitutional
countries. In dethroning the despot
ism of chicftancy there is danger of
enthroning the worse despotism of
the gutter, and whilst breaking loose
from the dominance of a tyraunical
aristocracy there is a possibility of
becoming subject to the control of a
more tyrannical democracy. Admit
ting that the government of the peo
ple should be from awl by the
people, none but a demagogue seeks
to place in the hands of vulgar
ignorance the power which is safe
only in the hands of refined intelli
gence. England is to-day one of the
freest countries under the sun, and
her government is probably more
directly influenced and controlled by
the voice of the people than any
other, not excepting the United
States; but her statesmen have
moved cautiously in the matter of
suffrage, not yet advancing so far as
to make it universal, the leaders of
the country fully realizing that the
nation has not yet attained that
stage of intelligence which qualifies
its entire manhood to wield the power
of the ballot. America has moved
too rapidly in this direction, which
many of her foremost men freely
admit. She has been too ready to
confer the franchise on the ignorant
and debased of her population, which
come chiefly from abroad. The con
sequence is, wc often see sitting in
her council chambers men without
character, sense, or decency. The
same is true of some British consti
tutional colonics. This certainly is
an evil which the intelligent and res
pectable would gladly get rid of.
