All readers of history know that
the great Roman Empire was broken
lip by irrnptivc incursions of hordes
of barbarians from the notth. As
the avalanche sweeps down the side
of an Alpine mountain, burying man
and his works in utter ruin, so the
vandal hordes from the northern re
gions swept over the plains of Italy,
and left nothing but wreck and ruin
where before there stood some of
the greatest works of art and archi
tecture the world ever saw. Rome
was no longer the home of states
men, warriors, poets, philosophers
and artists. Her greatness the
political and material portions of it,
at least passed away. But the
ideas of the orators, jurists and
warriors survived, and may be ap
propriated by the humblest reader
in our own land. The irruptions
that overwhelmed the Roman Em
pire in disaster were beyond the
control of the people. Scarcely had
they knowledge of the existence of
their foes until they were swept
before them, us if overtaken by a
tornado. Whether they had notice
of the impending danger or not, it
is certain that they were unable to
avert it. For had they been ad
vised of disaster, and failed to take
every possible measure to avoid it,
they might very justly be denounced
by posterity as poltroons, or idiots,
'or both. When the nation was at
tacked, the Romaus were not the
people to fold their arms and re
sign themselves with the indif
ference of masterly inactivity to
their fate. Self-preservation is the
first law of patriotism, as it is the
first law of nature. Whatever indi
cates danger to the commonwealth
rouses the spirit of the people.
"What was true of Rome is fast re
peating itself in the affairs of these
islands. AVhatevcr there is of civili
zation in this Kingdom, and there is
more than ever was attained by any
people on the earth within so limited
a period of time, is threatened with
as complete overthrow and ruin as
was carried, in the early centuries,
into the heart of the Roman Empire.
The fall of this Kingdom into bar
barism will be more terrible than
that of the Roman Empire into po
litical extinction. The higher the
nation stands in the heights of the
world's civilization, the more dis
astrous will the downfall be. That
civilization here is of n higher and
better type than ever was dreamed
of by the most sanguine optimist of
the Romans, scarcely admits of a
doubt. la her free toleration of all
creeds and religions, her courts of
justice, her laws, her publio schools
and colleges, and all other practical
appliances of the most advanced
. society in Europe and America, the
Kingdom of Hawaii is centuries
ahead of Rome. And yet, as t'ffairs
go at present, the total wreck of all
these glorious institutions is but a
question of n very few years. The
tide of invasion is rising higher and
higher, and breaking with ever-increasing
force upon these shores,
The conquering hosts are on tho
inarch, not at a distanco, but within
the very borders of the Kingdom.
Reinforcements are pouring into
their camp every month. They
only need a little more time to be
come irresistible. Then will there
be a collision, but it will be too late
to avert tho catastrophe. Had
Rome been able to do it, she would
have defended herself to tho Inst of
lior blood and lior bicnlh ngainst the
vandal hosts. Hut they had pro
gressed loo far. They had accumu
lated too much force. Several
scenes in the same ugly drama have
already been enacted here. The
perfotinnncc jjues on, and the peo
ple view il with an almost stolid lu
illffercucc. The invasion cannot
overcome the defences of the nation,
for theie arc no defences. The road
is wide open for the incursion of
Asiatic barbaiisni without even a
sentry at the gale, except the port
It would be a fair question, by
the way, for this nation to ask itself
whether it has been brought within
the circle of civilized kingdoms by
intluences from the east or from the
west. "What piece of the social
fabric has been brought over from
China or Japan? What pait of the
present impiovcd organization is it
that did not originate in America or
Europe? True, the vices of civi
lized society have been impoitcd as
well as the values. But the virtues,
so far as they go, have certainly not
been introduced or promulgated by
the Asiatics. That all the institu
tions of civilized society arc threat
ened with extinction, every one who
reads, hears or sees, knows already,
in a general way, as well as any
newspaper article can tell him. But
general information is not suilicicnt
to bring the facts forward in all
their keen angular outlines. Com
mon observation may be at fault.
Newspapers and politicians may
lie. But figures will not lie to
please Caucasian or Mongolian. And
figures are bold on this question.
They demonstrate the danger threat
ening society on these islands beyond
the possibility of a doubt. The
statistics of arrivals and departures,
as given in the Gazette yesterday
morning, arc doubtless compiled
from authentic sources. We accept
them as correct. And being there,
wc take the liberty of not going to
the trouble of hunting them up for
ourselves. The arrivals, at this
port, of Chinese since the beginning
of the year, in excess of departures,
arc 2,010, which, added to the
census numbeis of last year, bring
the Asiatic population up to 20,095.
The European and American popu
lation has diminished hy excess of
departures over arrivals to the num
ber of 5G8, which, deducted from
the census returns, 7,180, leaves a
present count of C,G12. With few
exceptions, the 20,000 Asiatics re
ported above have little or no con
cern in the institutions of the western
world. The churches, the schools,
the moral and .social organizations,
the politics, the courts, the hygiene,
the refinements and all public enter
tainments of the better sort, arc
severally and collectively and se
verely let alone by 20,000 out of
20,000 of the foreign population!
And that is but the beginning of
the end. The army of 20,000 is
being periodically reinforced, while
the little garrison of C,G00 is monthly
growing weaker by loss of numbers.
Paganism stands three to one against
progressive civilization in respect of
numbers. When it prevails and
sweeps away all the landmarks of
religion and philanthropy, historians
and reporters of the. press will not
need to puzzle their brains much to
find the cause of .so terrible a fate
having befallen the nation that
emerged from darkness to light and
suffered the lamp of its existence to
be extinguished again in a deeper
and denser darkness than ever and
all within the revolution of the few
years that go to make up a single
century. The progress of Hawaii
towards that goal is steady and not
slower than the growth of some of
its vegetation. If any one halts be
tween two opinions as to the truth
of these assertions regarding the
progi ess of events, one hour on the
streets of Honolulu ought to more
than relieve him of all uncertainty.
Arc these possible calamities, like
those that befell the Romans, beyond
the control of that portion of tho in
habitants who arc sincerely desirous
of promoting the welfare and im
proving the condition, of the people?
Must the European and American,
with all their improvements and
ideas, be driven out, bag and bag
gage, before the advancing hosts of
paganism? Can anything be done
to stay the tide of Asiatic immigra
tion, or must all be submerged be
neath It? The question Is easily
answered. Well, what Is to bo ilono?
Stop It. The prescription is short
enough. It possesses, too, tho vir
tue of real infallibility. Tho United
States were similarly threatened.
They adopted the only possible and
common sense measures for the
effective rolling back of this tide.
They stopped II by an impassable
bariier, right at the Golden Gate.
Across the '19th pnrallel, Cnnnda is
just about standing tip to encounter
a like invasion. There, too, the
decree is nbout lo bcissucd. Slop
il. Preserve the laboi of the coun
try for its native workmen, and the
institutions for the people and their
descendants. The Hawaiian King
dom, instead of being last, should
be fiist in these measures. And if
there is not vim enough in the pub
lic opinion of this nation to secure
the necessary legislation for its pro
tection, then the people richly de
serve the fate impending over them.
