The California Alia ha- lieon
hard at it for irrigation of desert
lands in the State. The latest cal
culation is that if irrigation is made
general, the results will be two to
one in comparison with the total
yield of the gold mines to date.
Irrigation is an enterprise that ought
to be vigorously agitated in this
kingdom. The advantages of irri
gating lands arc sulllciently appa
rent on the plantations, where dis
tributing water over the areas
planted is part of the cultivation.
Provision for the irrigation of all
lands cultivated and wanted for cul
tivation ought to be made on a per
manent basis. To make the soil of
the country productive is as much a
public necessity as the construction
of railroads in larger countries, or
the running of steamers. A railroad
is needed to open up a wilderness
country, or a steamer is needed to
ply between ports, and in all such
cases government aid is expected.
On the same principles, a universal
system of water supply for this
island, wherever and whenever
needed, might very well be taken
up as one of the public works of the
kingdom. If a road or a bridge is
needed to get to a locality, it ought
to be of not less consequence that the
locality be worth getting to. The
great solitudes of this island, once
teeming with inhabitants, would .oon
be lepeopled if oil and climate
could be depended on to yield fair
returns for labor and capital. All
that seems to be wanting under these
heads is a regular and suflicient
water supply. "When the skies
yield moisture in scant measure or
at long intervals, enterprise, under
the guidance of science, and with
the sinews of capital, finds relief in
nattirc's storehouse, the earth. It
is said by persons who ought to
know that the natives of Oahu, in
ye ancient days, had an excellent
system of supplying water to their
respective holdings. Now, that the
country is blessed with liberal taxa
tion, large public levenues, an
empty treasury, and swarms of
olllcials, an edicicnt system of irri
gation would produce taxable pro
perty tenfold more taxable, the
revenues would be immensely in
creased, the treasury replenished,
and .the olllcial pay roll would re
present service as well as salary.
-As has been frequently asserted
before in the columns of this paper,
the country's future depends upon
its'-being occupied by a large free
labor'population, and to secure this,
provision must be made for render
ing the resources of nature available
tfor the prosecution of every branch
flf'J: of agricultural industry.
A NEW PLAN.
Tho Irish National League of Ame
'rica is going to run the English
Parliament. Since dynamite won't
blow up British institutions on the
other side of the "herring pond,"
ih'oney is going to shape the course
of Imperial legislation so that Ire
land will have things all her own
vyfty. Home rule or any other kind
of'rulo will then be reached by tho
plainest sailing imaginable. The
'sinews of constitutional warfare are
to ybo provided in America. The
great difficulty which has hitherto
bdset Mr. Pamell in the House of
Comroous was the want of votes.
Provided aij M, P. has votes enough
at his back, he is well-fixed. Then,
of course, landlordism goes down
and Home Rule goes up. And
these votes arc now to be provided.
A fund is to he raised amounting to
S225,000 to enable Mr. Pnrnell to
guarantee 500 a year to every one of
ninety members for live years. This
handsome remuneration will be sup
plemented by Hie followers of Mr.
Pnrnell . in Ireland. The ninety
patriots will as in duty bound vote
solid for Mr. ParnelPs measures.
And as pintles arc pretty evenly
divided in the Commons the ninety
will hold the balance of powct. Hut
they have their seats to win in the
election. This, too, will be pio
vided for. All money collected by
the League previous to January is
to go over to defray the expenses of
the ninety's elections. This plan is
delightfully free from the dynamite
system of warfare with which the
public had become very disagree
ably familiar. That it will be a
brilliant success, of course, none of
the contributors of the S22."),()00 will
be permitted to doubt. The feasi
bility of the- plan of maintaining
ninety men in the pay of a section
of the citizens of a foreign country
in the House of Commons l cumins
to be tested. Meantime the collec
tions can go on. and the money, if
not applicable in Ireland, will build
a couple of very nice brown stone
mansions in New York for the prin
cipal olllcers of tho league. That
tho ninety M. P.'s retirement from
the house at "Westminster will be as
rare a piece of sport as a boar hunt
in the Duke of Argyll's game prqj
serves, need be no bar to the dili
gence of the collectors or the libe
rality of the contributors. What is
wanted is the $22o,000.
The war cloud has disappeared in
the North only to re-appear in the
East. Eastern Roumelia, one of
the Turkish provinces given auto
nomy at the Berlin Conference, at
the close of the Russo-Turkish war,
has suddenly risen as one man, de
posed the Governor-General and
proclaimed its annexation to Bulga
ria. The Governor-General is nomi
nated by the Porte, subject to the
approval of the signatories of the
Treaty. Bulgaria cordially received
the revolutionizing child, Bulgarian
troops poured into the annexed Pro
vince, and Prince Alexander made
an ostentatious entry into his new
domain-.. The Bulgarian troops
were said to be commanded by
Russian olllcers, but later it was
announced these were replaced with
Bulgarians. Of course, Russia is
believed to be at the bottom of the
business, and the revolution, entirely
a bloodless one, is regarded as the
lirstfruits of the recent conference
of the Czar and the Austrian Em
peror at Kremsier. Turkey has
appealed to the signatory Powers,
upon behalf of the integrity of the
Treaty of Berlin. There the matter
stood at last accounts.
Eiinou Bui.i.ktin : A merchant
is reported to have made the follow
ing remaiks: "I think it is per
fectly tidiculous. You cannot make
one law for one nationality and an
other for another" the above re
fen ing to and condemning the poliej'
put forth in Mr. Marques' letter
found in your issue of the 1st. I do
not agree with that merchant;
neither can 1 sustain his opinion ;
undoubtedly the gentleman who
made the remarks found in your
issue of the 2nd, if he may he an
old kamaaina, had not taken into
consideration the laet that the
Hawaiian, the former and original
owner of the soil, was "kapu" and
depiived of the right to use ardent
spirits for many years under the
very same constitution which now
governs the islands, and acknow
ledged by all to be paramount and
tho supremo law of the land.
During the time the Hawaiian was
deprived of those rights, theso
eastern pagans have been allowed
the full and equal lights of a Chris
tian nation, and been allowed the
use of and right to purchase diink
and to deal in ardent spirits through
out the kingdom. White they, the
Chinese, and all other nationalities
were enjoying their rights and free
dom, the native of the soil was com
pelled iinmauucily to sneak to the
back door and take an unlawful
dram, at the same time a Hawaiian
Legislatuie was luxing his, tho
native's property, to bring here
these Mongolian people whom Mr.
Marques is honorably endeavoring
to restrict, in oider to check the
exodus and retain hcie the white
race, which fairly claims to be tho I
founders and main supporters of
our present constitution.
I further quoto from the gentle
man's remarks : "I would have the
retail license fee raised to $500,
which would close tip most of these
Chinese stores at once." I ceitainly
must admit that this SoOO license
would close up probably one-half of
the Chinese stores throughout the
kingdom, and leave tho other half
in full and absolute control, to re
ceive nearly all money paid by the
planters to their laborers, which
now passes direct into these wealth'
Chinese business firms, now firmly
and well-established at the door of
nearly every sugar and rice planta
tion tlnoughoul the islands. I am
credibly informed by n citizen of
Hilo District that one Chinese firm
now controls and owns large inter
ests in 27 stores from Laupahochoo
to Hilo. Each and every store is
publicly dealing in "Jersey light
ning" and running a prospcious
opium trade in presence of the Ha
waiian olllcials of that district.
Sir, it is my firm conviction that
the only alternative left to the peo
ple to lcclify tho now existing evil,
save ourselves from total annihila
tion, and prevent the abrogation of
our tieaty, is to strike from our
statutes a labor act which is en
couraging the Hawaiian olllcial to
bring to these limited shores thou
sands of foreign pauper laborers,
desired only by a Government syn
dicate in order to fill each one's pri
vate coffers; secondly, by placing a
law upon our statutes, stopping the
issuing of wholesale or retail licenses
to these "long tail" Chinese coolies,
formeily brought here expressly to
supply the planter with labor. My
views, if carried out, will save the
Hawaiian from total extinction, once
more place business enterprises in a
state of prospciity, enable us to re
gain the goodwill and support of
foreign nations, and save ourselves
a disgiaceful future.
I do not quite agree with Mr.
Marquc3 in his slow process of super
seding these people. Upon mature
deliberation I think lie must come
to the conclusion that we must
agree to act energetically aiid firmly
in order to protect ourselves, our
rights,) ana" property, and the Ha
waiian from being driven into the
ocean. The question has been fre
quently asked by many of our pro
perty holders: "Would not the
government oe a large loser in
revenue by refusing to grant licenses
to the Chinese storekeepers?" My
answer is : The capital now hoarded
and lying dormant in the kingdom
would be used to purchase the most
of their property; therefore, the
Hawaiian Treasury would receive
nearly the same amount of revenue
for licenses through the hands of a
race of Christian people, instead of
receiving it from Eastern barbarians,
who have shewn but scant or no re
spect, during their stay here, for
the Hawaiian, his institutions or
government. Z. Y. Squihes.
