THE SOUTH SEAS.
There is every appearance of a
regular and lucrative trade being
developed between the Hawaiian
Island and the several Pacific
Groups southward. Quietly but
steadily the Pacific Navigation Com
pany has been developing commerce
in that quarter, which gives promise
of great things in the near future.
It is now in contemplation by this
Company to shortly start a packet
line between Honolulu and Jaluit,
the flourishing capital of the Mar
shall Islands. Private enterprise
having opened up a profitable inter
course with those islands, the next
thing in order will be for the Gov
ernment to foster it. The exercise
of intelligent foresight in this mat
ter may very well be anticipated to
make Honolulu the depot for the
productions of the neighboring Pa
cific groups. Thus a valuable incre
ment to our foreign trade in other
directions could be secured. Free
trade ought to be established with
those groups. The loss to the
revenue from such a policy would
be only trifling, and made up mani
fold by the increased business of
the port. It might not be very long,
with all restrictions removed, before
the trade could support a steam line.
This would, besides facilitating com
merce in goods, create a new and
delightful excursion route, with Ho
nolulu as its northern terminus.
Our own people would find a trip to
the .South Seas a pleasant variety
from journeys to the Coast and to
the Volcano. Connections could be
made, doubtless, with the Austra
lian and the'San Francisco steamers,
and low combination rates charged,
which would form an additional in
centive to bring American and
European tourists this way. Al
ready there has been mooted an ex
cursion by steamer, chartered for
the purpose, from Honolulu to the
South Seas as far as Tahiti next
summer. It is to be hoped the pro
ject will take definite shape and be
carried to a happy consummation.
At this oppressive season, it is a
wonder no philanthropic enterprise
provides an occasional yachting ex
cursion, to Pearl Uivcr, say, or even
Waikiki. Where is the yacht? Let
the philanthropic enterprise find the
answer to that question. It is enough
for the hardworked and parboiled
editor to conceive the. idea. There
arc plenty of excursions to the Vol
cano and elsewhere for people who
have the time and money for tlicni.
What is needed is the opportunity
for those who have to stay at home
and woik, to get out of the dusty
town for n few hours in the wee!;, or
Accordingto Lazybones," every
thing is lovely and the goose hangs
high. Nothing is wanting to com
plete his indolent bliss but that an
entirely nativo Cabinet should rule
the roast, all foreigners be debarred
from citizenship, the press be muz
zled, heiaus and the hula restored,
and the last election taken as the
eternal will of the people.

EntToit Ih'i.i.t-TiN : I said yester
day that the next Legislature, and
the campaign to obtain that, ought
to bo the doings of the whole mass
of voters for the benefit of the na
tion, and not be the result of authori
tative management of the electoral
body by any clique or coterie for
the benefit of sonic limited parly in
the nation. Consequently my in
ference was that before finding can
didates who consent to run. voters
ought to lie found who consent to
give them their suffrage. I further
said that the only way of assuring
tho success of the fight was by or
ganizing all the disparate elements
which here constitute the opposition
into one compact body, with solid
pioclaiined principle, so as to be
worthy of being called the Independent-Opposition
The formation and organization of
that party is thus the corner-stone
of the whole political structure, and
the only way of starting these is by
getting together the different ele
ments, the different nationalities
which constitute the voting force.
That can be done only by meetings,
discussions and deliberations not
by an accidental, spasmodic one,
but by repeated, even regularly re
pealed meetings ; and Honolulu, the
capital, ought to take the lead in
the movement. It might begin by
small meetings at the private houses
of such men of influence who, in the
different paths of life and society
and amongst the various constitute
in" elements, might find themselves
interested ii the matter. These
meetings would rapidly grow more
numerous and get to be semi-public,
and as soon as the public mind and
popular sentiment were sutllcicntly
prepared, then general public meet
ings could be summoned, under the
pationagc and in the presence of
our influential men, in which the
evils of bad government and the
dangers threatening the country
should be properly ventilated, and
voters be taught their rights and
At this moment a central, or
working committee should be organ
ized, I; public vote, to lead tho
campaign and organize the work of
rccruitingjadhcrcnts, and as no battle
can be fought without ('money , also
to attend to the means of procuring
the necessary funds. This commit
tee would have also the important
duty of preparing the suggestions of
proper candidates if these did not
conic out of themselves the names
of which to bo submitted to the
public meetings, and only those re
tained and supported who obtain
the popular approbation.
Moreover, as all these public
meetings must be conducted so as to
reach the real voters and gel them
interested, it might be the business
of the committee to address them
personal invitations ; for public
meetings in this country, as 1 have
seen them, arc often composed main
ly of men who, after being very
noisy or violent, turn out not to be
even voters. If this class help by
ideas, money or otherwise, their
presence may be all right ; but as I
don't believe they do, the help they
seem to bring to the meeting or to
the cause is probably only as falla
cious as it may prove sometimes
It may, perhaps, be argued at
this juncture that these proceedings
would be too complicated. I an
swer that I have seen them work
beautifully in constituencies of tens
of thousands of electors. They
work equally well from Paris to the
smallest village of (France, through
ten millions of voters. I cannot see
why they should be too complicated
here, where the electoral lists hardly
reach a couple of thousand, all the
names of which are known and easy
to be seen individually. At all
events, the system might be given a
fair trial, with the understanding
that the key of success consists in
reaching every voter personally, not
in the secrecy of private bribery,
but in the glow of enthusiasm which
results from public discussions and
Once the action fairly started in
Honolulu, and the Central Commit
tee well organized, similar move
ments arc to be staited in all the
districts, where possible; and as
unity makes strength, it would be
well, without interfering with the
rights and liberty of each district,
that different members of the Cen
tral Committee bo delegated over to
whatever districts they might have
friends or influence in, to organize
tho first meetings there, and help
the voters to select their proper can
didates. In that way, cohesion, unity of
action, would bo obtained, which
alono can prevail against tho power
ful unity and discipline, and the
diffeicnt modes of pressure pertain
ing to tho Governmental party. And
this leads mo to say that tho unity
of operations, as assuied by a central
direction, would lender the opposi
tion, rank mid file, bolder for action
and more apt to withstand the bribe
ry, corruption, and intimidation
which probably will be exercised by
the adversary, against individual
voters. And every corrupt practice
ought to be resisted, even by extreme
measures, so as to bring the matter
before the courts of justice, which
would help to condemn a corrupt
government. But for sako of brevity
and clcarnoss, I shall now make a
brief summary of my points :
1st, Public meetings to unite the
different elements of opposition ;
2udly, A central cominittco nomi
nated by popular choice to organize
and conduct the campaign ;
3rdly, Proper candidates thor
oughly discussed, and then supported
to the bitter end ;
llhh-, Similar organizations start
ed, through tho central committee,
in all outside districts ;
(Hlily, Malpractices resisted by all
With somo such thorough organ
ization through the whole country,
and with tho choice of popular can
didates designated and sustained by
popular favor and enthusiasm, not
by the tenebrous influence of a
fractionary parly, victory could, it
seems, be mailc certain in every
constituency. Thcnwith an over
whelming majority of independent
members returned, who would refuse
to vote the Appropriation Bill until
better Ministers be found to attend
to tho expenditure of the public
moneys, where would be tho much
trusted indestructibility of the pres
ent administration? But, in 1113' esti
mation, much better results still,
than that paltry victory of over
throwing the present Ministers,
would be the price- of such a cam
paign, and these would bo to obtain
the administration of the country
and government of the people by the
people themselves, within tho loyal
limits of the constitution itself.
WHO WANTS A CHANGE?
Editor Bur.i.r.Tix: Well, wo have
a new set of Ministers. Better than
thai two now sets, each independ
ent of the other, and these both in
addition to the old one. Hawaii is
a fortunate little country. Three
cabinets all at one time, when a
thickly populated country like Eng
land recently found difficulty in
making up a single cabinet to take
the place of a defunct one. I will
drop a line to Lord Salisbury to tell
him where to apply in future difficul
ties. I should not be surprised if
by the end of the week we manage
to get cabinets enough to place one
on each island of the group and two
in the capital. To some it might
seem strange that the country has
the capacity to muster so many
cabinets on so short notice. This
is fully explained, however, by the
emoluments of office and the woodi
ness of aspirants' heads. To others
it may appear slightly novel that a
second cabinet should be indicated,
while the first remains in its place,
snug, satisfied, and secure. This,,
however, is one of the many evi
dences of our wonderful advance
ment beyond all other nations of the
earth, and also a wonderful proof of
our profound ignorance of and dig
nified contempt for the usages of all
old fossil constitutionally governed
This point being conclusively set
tled, once and forever, the next to
bo considered is the composition of
those new cabinets : they arc com
posed entirely of haolcs, or white
men. In view of the fact that this
country is ruled by a native sover
eign and that at least nine-tenths of
the elective votes are in aboriginal
hands, this is a trifle peculiar. My
friend Brown, who has some crude
ideas on common subjects, explains
the matter on the assumption that
the arrogranco of these cabinet
makers is exceeded only by the
thickness of their heads. Brown
also says that Americans and Brit
ishers would scorn the idea of a few
foreigners coming to their respec
tive countries, purchasing a bit of
land, establishing themselves in
business, making money, and then
impudently declaring that they were
going to rule the roost and have
things all their own way. I don't
say that Brown is orthodox, but I
must confess that he has given one
or two posers that I am compelled
to give up.
Now, I have some queer notions
of my own about cabinet formations.
First, and in this I expect every
body to agree with ine, it is as im
possible here as elsewhere to make
a cabinet to satisfy every person
concerned, and that is as impossible
as to stick tho two horns of tho
moon together with an ounce of
putty. Next, I am not convinced
that tho cabinet now in charge of
the government does not satisfy a
greater number of those concerned
than cither of those named as better
qualified to occupy its place. Pro
bably "Action" and "Waiting for
Action" will jump with surprise at
sucli a statement. They will be
ready to reply that three out of four
of the traders, employers of labor,
and mechanics of Honolulu favor a
change. I havo no doubt about it,
But these are not tho people desig
nated as "those concerned;" or, in
other words, they are not tho elec
tors. How many of them possess
the franchise, and what is the high
est number of votes they aggregate?
Three hundred is a high estimnto,
while the entire voto of Honolulu is
little less than three thousand.
Then nine-tenths of tho electors arc
not included in the number of whom
"three out of four favor it change."
That is, a largo majority of a small
minority voto for a cliango, but a
very large majoiity of the whole
have not been taken into account at
all. How is this main portion of
tho electorate affected? I give you
my opinion, which you may deride
as superlatively ridiculous, if you
please, without hinting my feelings
on bit. It is this, that in n general
election, in which all parties should
keep their hands off, allowing every
man to cast his ballot according to
his own uninfluenced inclination, if
the present head of the administra
tion were among tho candidates ho
would be returned at the head of
the poll. This opinion is based on
intimato acquaintance with the
native people and their views. If
the election should piove 111c mis
taken, I would perch on the bell
tower and allow "Action" and
"Waiting Action" eacli to lake live
shots at me. Again I must slop
without the steam being all let off.
