To-morrow will be celebrated
throughout tho United States a3 the
Anniversary of the Independence of
tho nation, United States residents
in foreign countries will bridge over,
in imagination, the spaces and dis
tances separating them from their
homes, and tho "glorious fourth"
will awaken in them grateful remem
brances of past events in their
national history. The observance
of national anniversaries has much
to do with nationalizing the people
of any country and re-awaking from
time to time tho fervor of patriotism.
The recurrence of Independence
Day may well remind tho people,
not only of the United States, but
those of the raco to which they be
long, wherever scattered throughout
the globe, that there were, in tho
olden times, men of gigantic intel
lect, sterling integrity and irrepressi
ble spirit. Tlioy were not mummies
content to remain in whatever ancient
habilitnonts of political rngs the
found themselves invested. Tho
whole race may well join in eulog
izing the statesmen who would have
"no taxation without representa
tion" and who fought out the theory
of free institutions, not only for a
whole continent, but for the strug
gling millions of the plauct on which
The subjects of Queen Victoria
can join in with the citizens of tho
United States in celebrating the day,
for the victory achieved on Ameri
can soil was a grand vindication of
the very principles for which the
best people of the British Islands
themselves had been contending
against the "vested rights" and ab
surd pretensions of feudalism and
"the divine right" of kings, for
centuries. Tho reflex influence of
the establishment of the institutions
of self-government may be said to
have extended to the outmost bounds
of the habitable clobe. Wherever
the name of the United States has
gone and where Has it not reaencu f
the spirit of manhood has been
stirred up, and submission to des
potic power and unrighteous ex
actions ceased to bo a virtue.
France, after much experimenting
in forms of government, seems now
to have settled down to republican
ism forever. Since 177G, no less
than ten republics have been estab
lished in the western world. Mexico
came into the circle in 1821, and, at
different times, Peru, Chili, Para
guay, Bolivia, Colombia, Venezuela,
Ecuador, Uruguay and the Argen
tine Confederation, in South Ameri
ca, have adopted republican forms
of government. The Dominion of
Canada is, to all intents and pur
poses, republican in principle, if not
in form. At the present time,
therefore, instead of being under
European control, as it was a year
before the Declaration of Indepen
dence, the American continent from
ocean to ocean, and from pole to
pole, is virtually, in the administra
tion of its affairs, altogether in the
hands of its own people. And the
people are masters of the situation.
Governments arc public property.
The people do not belong, in fee
simple, to the rulers. Magna Charta
first enunciated this doctrine, the
Declaration of Independence demon
strated it. The one document is the
complement of the other. Magna
Charta proclaimed that no free man
can be deprived of life or property,
at the caprice of the sovereign ; the
Declaration of Independence pro
claimed that no one can bear rule in
the nation except by the will of the
And with these facts before them,
every nationality represented in this
Kingdom, whether British, Euro
pean or Asiatic, can very appro
priately join with American resi
dents here in keeping high holiday
Tin: Giiftlc is too much of a liter
alist. Any hall in town is "stuffy"
in the daytime, compared with the
breezy beaches of Waikiki.
Miss Rossitcr, in her handbook,
"Silk Culture," estimates that
ground devoted to food for silk
worms will yield $300 to the acre.
Other things equal, land in this
climate should be worth much more
for that purpose. People here will
ing to embark in the enterprise
should make arrangements for get
ting mulberry trees planted at the
next proper senson. Had there been
food for worms on these islands,
when the agitation for silk culture
here began, there is no doubt scores
of people would now be raising co
coons, and tho problem would to a
laigc extent bo solved. The trees
may bo planted so as to improve the
appearance of premises, even if no
silk is ever produced from them.
