In discussing this question a week
ago, we made use of figures collated
by the Gazette as the basis of com
ment. Replying to that paper, the
Advertiser denied the accuracy of
those figures in the following terms:
"The statistics of Chinese immi
gration have been grossly exagger
ated. The arrivals of Chinese at
all ports of the Kingdom during the
year ended May ill, 1885, num
bered 2,282, of whom 01 were fe
males ; departures of Chinese during
the same period, l,7f)!(; net gain
of Chinese population during the
twelve months ended May ''! 1885,
In reply to this contradiction, tho
" Turning to the published state
ment of the Custom-house, we find
that during the year ending Decem
ber 31, 1881, there were altogether
2,708 Chinese who entered the
country, and 1,417 who left, leaving
a. net gain of 1,201 for thai year.
From January 1st to May 1st the
excess of Chinese arrivals over de
partures was 881, and during the
month ending May 31st the excess
was 301. A total of excess for 1885
of 1,185 Chinese. Now, by what
process of figure juggling the ex
cess of Chinese for the year ending
May 31, 1885, has been reduced to
52!) we arc at a loss to say ; and an
explanation would be interesting.
The facts as laid down in the Ga
zette arc incontrovertible. First,
the official showing of the Custom
house for the year 1881. Secondly,
the arrivals nnd departures of Chi
nese, as published in the Gazette
for 1885, compiled from authentic
sources, and giving the names of the
vessels, their dates of arrival and
departure, and the number on
This morning's Advertiser gives
the official Custom-house returns,
showing the arrivals for the year
ending May 31, 1885,. to have
been 2,282, and outward Chinese
passengers during the same period
to have been 1,808, which makes
the net gain of Chinese for the
twelve months in question 474. This
docs not detract from the accuracy
or force of the Gazette's statistics,
that were made up for a period of
Another correspondent, in to
day's issue, discusses Asiatic as
cendancy. It is not fair to charge
the present Government with the
chief responsibility for the situation,
so long as it does not relax the sta
tutory restrictions upon Chinese
immigration. Mongolians arc over
whelming the country, as a result of
,the inexorable demands of the plan
tations. The Government is entitled
to all credit for having refused a
strong petition-for more of them last
autumn. Dependence upon that
race for labor is coming to be view
ed as the grand mistake of the
nation, and only those will be to
censure hereafter who persist in up
holding the policy a day longer than
will bo required to have it constitu
tionally abrogated. As regards tho
advocacy of specific restrictions up
on the Chinese in local commerce,
by several correspondents recently,
it will be remembered that the At
torney - General, last , session,
brought forward several measures
in that direction. In some cases
he could not obtain a majority of
the Assembly, and in one notable
instance, u very equitable measure,
the absence of which our merchants
have had reason sinco to deplore,
was defeated by the royal veto, given
under powerful pressure from tho
community. Those legislative epi
sodes form a striking illustration of
the anomalous relations existing be
tween the different estates of the
rcnlm under tho present Constitu
tion. Tlio way of reform, in regard
to the evil hcreiu treated, as well as
others, must of necessity be an up
hill and rugged one. ThCro must
be a combination of all the people
desirous of civilization nnd progress,
unitedly seeking the good of the
uatiou, with a determination not to
be turned from their grand purpose.
ONLY A RUMOR.
It was freely mentioned on the
streets yesterday that the new Ha
waiian Consul-General for the Pa
cific Coast engaged, in accepting his
commission, to return half the re
ceipts of his ofllcc to the Govern
ment. The position is understood
to have been a very lucrative one,
worth all the way from $10,000 to
820,000 a year. This represents a
very heavy tax upon trade between
this country and the Coast, but the
system and not the incumbent is to
blame. Whether the above-mentioned
rumor is correct or not, tho
Government pursues an unwise
course in continuing to have the
Consulate maintained by fees, es
pecially when these are very exorbi
tant. For instance, one cannot have
an order for fifty cents' worth filled
on the Coast without being taxed
three dollars for a Consular certifi
cate. It is a very burdensome im
post, and a serious impediment to
the free working of the reciprocity
treat. At the last session of the
Legislature, an attempt was made
to have the fee system replaced by
one of salaried Consuls, but the
Government successfully withstood
it, and so the obnoxious taxing
machinery remains. It is to be
hoped the next Legislature will have
the good sense to abolish this anoma
lous restriction upon trade. It is
of a piece with the extortionate head
money tax and the passport humbug.
Everybody will commend the
wisdom of the Celebration Com
mittee, in deciding to have the
Fourth of July exercises in the
breezy open of the Park, instead of
in a stuffy hall in town. Doubtless
not only Americans, but all lovers
of the liberty symbolized in the
Stars nnd Stripes, will avail them
selves of the ample conveyances to
bo provided to that delightful resort,
and luxuriate a day in the imported
article of the air of freedom.
From the first this paper has had
a good word for Japanese immigra
tion. One recommendation of that
people was their reputedly domes
tic habits. If, however, they do
not come largely in households, that
excellent trait cannot bo exemplified
in our eyes, and there will be dan
ger, from their natural susceptibility
to surrouudings, of the men falling
into evil courses when not under
the good influences of home life.
The country should insist upon
having kept, in good faith, the pro
mise of a fair proportion of women
being sent with each lot.
