A SUICIDAL POLICY.
Blind ami bigoted is the United
States Government's adherence to
the doctrine of protection. This is
manifest in the treatment accorded
steam commerce with Australasia.
A San Francisco paper says this
trade is largely in favor of America.
By the stoppage of the Pacilic Mail
steamers the fruit shipments from
California, which have rapidly grown
lately, especially onions and apples,
will cease. San Francisco will bo
injured in a number of ways by the
withdrawal of the line. The large
number of Australians that go to
Kngland and Europe by way of that
city spend more or less money there.
'Die railway companies will be af
fected, for they carry the passengers
to and from Australia both ways
across the continent. Yet all this
benefit and much more, bound to
increase with the perpetuation of
the service, is to bo swept away be
cause the United States cannot af
ford the paltry subsidy requisite to
maintain the communication. These
are entirely private sentiments with
this paper, for no one speaking on
behalf of this country is in a posi
tion to bring u railing accusation
against its powerful neighbor in this
matter. The Hawaiian Legislature
cut off the nation's nose, in appor
tioning ocean subsidies, to add to
tho proboscis of the monopoly that
holds a mortgage on the Kingdom,
SEIZURE OF HERAT.
Just before tho mail steamer left
Son Francisco, news reached that
city that the Hussions had seized
Herat. The Hawaiian Constil
General despatched tho tidings to
this Government, and it has all the
appearance of being authentic. Of
course the only conclusion is that
war is inevitable. Such an auda
cious and flagrant violation of Af
ghanistan's territory, guaranteed by
England, supersedes the possibility
of negotiations being continued by
the Marquis of Salisbury's Govern
ment on the lines of Mr. Gladstone's
policy. Tho event absolves the new
Ministry from the obligations be
queathed it by the old one, and may
be taken as the C.ar's reply to the
Marquis's declaration, in.cffect, that
the "scientific frontier" of Lord
Bcaeonslicld was t'o be established.
By last previous mail it was asserted
npp.ii unity on good evidence, that
Russia intended to take Herat im
mediately on thu completion of the
Central Asian laihvay, the ensuing
autumn. It would appear that the
firm attitude assumed by the Con
servative English Government lias
decided the Czar that "now or
never" must be the motto of the
next move in his grand desigii of
southern territorial conquest. The
colliding crash of Empires in the
Eastern world is a stupendously
weighty catastrophe, and the impact
must cause ripples, if not waves,
even in these distant seas.
OUR INJURED CORRESPONDENT.
Yesterday there was no space to
spare for the reply that " Lazy
bones' " letter in that issue called
for. To his implications of disin
genuousness respecting our brief
note on his last preceding letter, it
is suflleicnt to say that the intention
thereof was patent on the face of it,
namely, to answer a nameless species
of character according to his pecu
liarity, lie had made an exagger
atedly bitter and indiscriminate
attack upon the local press, and cast
unmerited slurs upon a large portion
of the community, and to get an
idea into an cxaggcrator's skull it
must be expanded, or it may become
lost in the convolutions of his capa
cious car. Apart, however, from
the necessities of adaptation, tho
brief criticism passed upon his senti
ments was scarcely unjust. No one
could rise from a perusal of his pre
vious letter without being impres
sed with the idea that ho regarded
everything as indeed lovely and the
bird whose ancestors' cackling saved
Rome depending from the gable
peak. His writing left the strong
impression that everybody who dared
to have an opinion at issue with the
administration of the day was a
tiniberheadcd dolt. It conveyed the
idea that the press of Honolulu in
general was of an excessively pesti
ferous, malignant and unintelligent
character, whereas he or anybody
else may be challenged to point to a
community in Christendom with a
press more averagcly decorous and
free from unjustifiable criticism of
public men and measures, or, ac
cording to the facilities afforded,
better informed upon the subjects
essayed to be discussed. "Lazy
bones" says he had not attempted
to put anybody right, but made a
feeble effort to indicate where many
people were wrong. Had he gone
the right way about the accomplish
ment of his task, he would not have
done the wrong he has to people who
arc honestly trying to set various'
matters right in this kingdom. The
very things he deprecates, such as
the noise made in national affairs by
aliens, are among the evils aimed to
be corrected by many of those at
whom lie rails. They, however, take
the rational course of trying to in
duce the aliens to become citizens,
instead of inciting their i escntment
b' taunting them with impertinence,
for venturing to open their mouths
upon matters affecting the country
whoso welfare they arc enhancing in
material ways. Surely, if he posses
ses the spirit lie prescribes for the
press, lie should not deny the virtues
of sincerity and unselfishness to all
who have of late indulged their un
doubted right of discussing possiblo
Cobiucts to serve the country better
than the present one. This corres
pondent's caso only veiilles the re
sult of observations in other quarters
the opinion Unit those who talk
loudest about the depraved pugna
city of the press, least observe tho
amenities when tlicy undertake to
ventilate their own views in print.
"Well, my young gentleman, how
would you like to have your hair
cut?" "Oh, like papa's, please,
with a little round hole on the top."
Editor Bulletin : It is a well
known nnd indisputable fnct Hint for
several years past tho work and
policy in which the Hawaiian Gov
ernment has been engaged is to hold
an American Treaty, and yet forci
bly drive from these shores the
Anglo-Saxon races. It is evidently
intended to accomplish this object
by landing here an Eastern race of
people unskilled and uncivilized,
judging from the appearance of the
DUO odd lately let loose and on pre
vious exhibition, many of whom
were indecently habilitated, upon
our streets, in presence of the fair
ladies of our land, without regard to
good morals or common decency,
which they would have shewn if
they, these people, were in a stale
of civilization ns claimed by our
l tilers. From appearances an im
partial citizen con only conic to the
conclusion that in future they will
be a scourge on society here and a
living monument of disgrace to the
governing and directing powers of
the Hawaiian nation. Drawing a
conclusion from an article headed
"Japanese Immigration," that made
its appearance in the Government
journal this morning, these Asiatic
coolie immigrants are considered by
our statesmen and rulers to be in
an advanced state of civilization,
and will become dutiful subjects.
Sir, ponder over the situation and
then conceive the opinion which
enlightened people must form of our
leading statesmen and ruler, who
have perseveringly and at great
expense, and at a time when our
treasury contains only about 5,000
dollars," sent embassadors, ships and
means to the Japanese Empire to
convey here the uncontrollable peo
ple of that Empire, in order to
gratify the desires of a small mino
rity of planters who now derive their
living from the generosity and at
the will and suffrage of the Ameri
can Government. His Mikadoship,
with the shrewdness of an Asiatic
ruler, can well afford to be generous
to this country, and undoubtedly
considers himself lucky in being able
to convince our statesmen that they
arc skilled and in an advanced state
of civilization. This Asiatic poten
tate must have formed a strange
opinion of the people who arc gov
erning this small Island Kingdom
(now to all outward appearances in
a state of degeneration), and who
are eagerly wooing the lower order
of the King's subjects, presumedly
among other ideas that of recuper
ating the Hawaiian race and estab
lishing a higher and more elevated
standard of morality amongst the
native people, and in order to retard
and check a continuous state of
retrogression visible everywhere on
these Islands, according to this light
of Government immigration, this
system will hereafter add wealth,
comfort and strength to the Hawai
ian Government to retrieve its lost
prestige by fulfilling the well-known
remarks "IIooulu Lahui," meaning
to increase our population, without
taking into consideration the wel
fare of the Hawaiian subjects who
arc supposed to be classed amongst
the enlightened races. "When it is
taken into consideration that nearly
thirty thousand of this class of im
migrants have been added to our
population in order to appease the
gorging appetites of sugar planters,
it is but natural that travellers visit
ing these shores, after viewing our
population and understanding the
true state of affairs now existing
and casting conclusions (for aught
we know on anthropologists support
ing by inspection and exhibition in
foreign countries the Darwinian
theory that primeval man was des1
cended and the product of the
lowest order of the animal creation,
this conclusion appearing after ex
perimenting on a few specimens of
the coolie on Hawaiian soil),, should
come to the conclusion that the
Darwinian theory is correct? If so,
then the propagator of our immigra
tion scheme in all probability here
after would be immortalized, and
after passing from this stage of oction
would be viewed with awe and
veneration by tho most learned and
scientific of the age, not throwing
into the shade the most famous John
C. Calhoun, whose memory above all
should be retained for the future
benefit of our Hawaiian rulers.
