Apparent! tho Advertiser is so
dependent itself that it cannot re
cognize independent opinion any
where else. This disposition it
showed, in .1 very unrefined manner,
a short time ago, Iry the unwarranted
and untrue reflections it cast upon
this paper's discussion of municipal
incorporation. The offense was re
peated" by that journal the other
daj", when it charged to partisan
opposition the criticism of this paper
upon the Government's action in
regard to a certain foreign mission
and a commission. It will be very
fortunate for the kingdom if events
do not prove the unwisdom of the
policy pursued in those cases. There
was no partisan motive in our show
ing the danger of the kingdom ap
pearing in a false position from par
ticular acts of the executive. That
the kingdom lias been so placed will
be admitted when it is known that
the policy in question has been
made a matter of concern to a
friendly Power. Again our con
temporary flies off at a tangent over
an item of news and comment in our
columns yesterday, regarding the
cause of the visit of a Special Com
missioner from Japan to this coun
try. In this case the Advertiier
has to resort to the device of giving
a gratuitous interpretation to our
language, to make it bear any
amount of irrelevant comment. Our
paragraph did not assert that the
Special Commissioner came here to
"verify" anything. Neither did
it imply that that ollicial came here
in anything but a friendly spirit.
Our contemporary, moreover, is
whacking at a man of straw of its
own architecture, when it denies the
Charge that no one made, that either
the Government or the sj'stem was
blamable for an "evil" discovered
by the Commissioner. Nothing is
proved contradictory of the Japan
news that further emigration was
prohibited, by the fact that about a
thousand immigrants came with the
Commissioner. Not a man would
have been sent to a plantation until
the injurious reports had been inves
tigated and found baseless. Had they
been found otherwise, doubtless the
whole- lot of immigrants would have
gone back on the same steamer, and
there would have been a nico claim
of damages against this country, on
the ground of enticing Japanese
from home on falso pretences. We
believe the news item lrom Japan,
referred to, to be substantially cor
rect, and published it as a hint to
all concerned that the price of fur
ther supplies of labor from Japan,
and of the retention of those already
here, was the good treatment of
laborers from that country. That
tho Advertiser writer believes with
us regarding the origin of the Com
missioner's visit is shown by his
own words, namely: "lie the
Commissioner found that there was
no justification whatever for tho in
jurious reports that had been sent
from this country, except in a single
Instance, and even there ho was
satisfied that bteps were being taken
to correct the evil." The Govern
ment might have a more discreet if
not a more zealous trumpeter of its
Biibliinc virtues. To lly to its de
fense when no assailant ia in sight
is suggestive of too great anxiety to
exhibit subserviency in return for
When a regular market is estab
lished in Honolulu, and the hawking
of produce round town is forbidden,
there will be some inducement for
white men and llawalians to lake the
advice of the Advertiser and raise
vegetables, eggs nnd poultry for
local consumption. There is no
" nonsensical diivel " over while
labor in agricultural pursuits being
driven out of the country. The ciy
goes up on behalf of white mechanics
crowded out, and while men being
denied laud sulllcient to enable them
to live by the agricultural pursuits
now monopolized by the Chinese.
Does our contemporary mean to say
that white men and Ilawaiians can
compete with tho Chinese in occupa
tions to which the latter are peculiar
ly adapted, while they cannot stand
against mechanical skill that John
borrows from them? The Chinese
horticulturist and poulterer is en
abled to thrive by facilities granted
him by corporations of his country
men, similar to those that the
Government should, but does not,
bestow upon while men and Ila
waiians. No while man can live and
pay the ground rent the Chinese pay.
One of the first requisites to afford
other people a chance of subsistence
off the soil, is to open exclusively
to their industry public lands, or
lands of private owners obtainable
upon easy terms, and so place them
upon an equal footing with the Chi
nese, who are the only ones who can
now pay the exorbitant rents asked
by large holders of laud for specu
lative purposes. The people must
be sick of that nonsensical drivel,
that in one line shouts against Mon
golian ascendancy, and in the next
taunts white men and Ilawaiians
with their indisposition to enter the
lists of competition with cheap John
in vegetable growing and peddling.
MR. SQUIRES' DISCLAIMER.
''Barbarians" was about the only
word that would btand for Mr.
Squires' estimate of the Japanese
immigrants. Headers of his first
letter will not bear him out in his
disclaimer. His second letter was
not published in full, because it did
not touch the question on its merits
till the last sentence but one, which
read thus: "Inasmuch as the peo
ple of Honolulu have lately been
treated to a free exhibition of these
Japanese coolies, and been able to
make a fair and scrutinizing examin
ation for themselves, they are now
able to judge of Japanese morals
and stale of civilization: therefore,
I shall rest my case and abide by
the public decision."
The San Francisco Merchant has
doubled its circulation in the year
that it has been in Mr. C. I?. Buck
land's hands. It bids fair to be
come a well established and profit
able newspaper property under our
friend's able management.
"There arc certain features about
this Chinese immigration which ap
pear to require investigation." A
letter received from Hongkong yes
terday by a gentleman in this city,
gives the information that Hawaiian
as well as California certificates com
mand as high as forty dollars each
there. If no sj'stcm of unmistakable
identification of holders of certifi
cates can be devised, the granting
of certificates will have to be stopped.
The civilized residents of this king
dom arc beginning to feci in earnest
upon this question.
On the fourth page of to-day's
issue appears a detailed statement
of the colonization policy adopted
by the new President of Guatemala.
The example, if not the paiticulais,
of the action of President Uarillas
may be useful to the Hawaiian Gov
ernment. If it is true, as the
Gazette alleges, that this Govern
ment is putting obstacles in the wny
of the land settlement scheme of tho
Legislature, then thero is something
rotten in tho stato of Hawaii, de
manding the united and patriotic at
tention of every citizen.
