Since tlieieeugnllloiinf the Independ

les than three distinct political parties
have at intervals dominated Hie Govern

publle. and In every administration the
people and the Government of Hawaii
have foilnd a -tcadfast friend and
goneroiii protector. The people of the
United States?, whoc will is an iiiMutc-
llon to their mlers, are juM, peaceful
and considerate, and in the future, as it
has been in the past, Hawaii may ic

gracious kindness of Your Majesty, and
the frankness and courtesy of Yoip

intercourse with them, I respectfully
ask for my successor a continuance of
that confidence and kindly feeling
which hac rendered r agreeable the
discharge of my olllcial and -oeial
duties near Your Majesty's Court.
Ills Majesty replied :i follows;
Mit. Daugktt: It is with regret that

His Excellency R. M. Daggett then

Tiie Secretary of the Treasury lias
issued a circular directing customs
oflicers to collect the alien immi
grant tax of fifty cents each from
foreigners coming to this country as
tourists anil as travelers in transit to
other countries, a9 'well as from
those coming to this country to
Tiie above clipping is from a
Washington despatch to a late San
Francisco paper. The tourist anil
immigrant arc henceforth to be
rated for the privilege of putting
their profane feet on United Stales
(soil. The levy is not altogether con
sistent with the broad principles of
liberty claimed by the American
nation. The whole country has
come to be regarded as the freest
under the sun. The gates of the
Union have been wide open, afford
ing free ingress and egress to every
person, of whatever race, color or
nation. By this new departure of
the Treasury Department, the click
of the entrance gate will he raised
only on payment of a fifty cent
admission fee. Tho people of the
United States are among the most
extensive travelers in the world.
It is only reasonable to suppose that
they would be the last to throw a
toll-bar across the part of the world's
thoroughfares running through their
country. There being no passport
tax in the arrangement, Secretary
Manning need not be said to have
taken the idea from the Hawaiian
Kingdom. It is not cyen certain
that lie knows of the easy anil sum
mary manner in which immigrants
and visitors to thcso Islands arc
compelled to put up the stamps.
The two dollars taken, just off tho
harbor, out of the already battered
purse of the frost-fleeing immigrant
from northern latitudes coming here
to get comfortably warmed, and the
passport fee payable before a person
can be permitted to go away to get
cooleilj arc tux-gathering devices
against which Mr. Manning's terms
arc very moderate indeed. Light,
however, as the tax is, it is u retro
grado blcp. If it is intended to
swell the revenues, it is needless, for
they aie more than full to over
flowing. If it is intended to add
one to the petty annoyances with
which travellers aie beset in every
country, it will answer its purpose
only too well. As it docs not affect
the peiiiiauent residents of the United
States, foreigners only will have to
complain. Their bark will be worso
than their bite, for they have no
votes, nnd not even a ward politiciuu
will enro lo champion their cause.
There will doubtless hu more Kit
ropcan sweating on Hie wharves of
New, Yoik this summer than usual.
It will next be in order for Canada,
Great Britain, Franco nnd oilier
Kuropcnii countries to follow suit
and impose admission feci upon
travelers from America going to see
the lion's of the Old World". After
a year's experience of the advan
tages of taxing each other all round
ill ti circle, nil pailics will get sick
of it, and there will be a general
international collapse of all u alios
pitablc exactions. And the world
may see as great a wonder during
tho present century us that the Ha
waiian Kingdom will permit its in
habitants to exist in an untaxed
stale at least until they land on its
shores, and will view the abolition
of the present system, under which
every inhabitant of the islands is
practically a prisoner of the Govern
ment, without any painful solicitude
for the safety of Hie country. This
is an age of personal and commer
cial intercourse between the people
of every country. Any unneces
sary restriction upon immigrant or
traveler is n source of .annoyance to
him, aud is unpleasant to the col
lector of the rale, as well. Citizens
of all civilized countries should be
free to go when and where they
please without being met by national
exactions lo render thcln painfully
conscious of the existence of other
