A MISCHIEVOUS POLICY.
A marked copy of the San Fran
cisco J'ost, containing the "Washing
ton despatch given elsewhere, came
to us by last mail. ,& We republish
the ridiculous document, but with
out the sensational anil somewhat
offensive headings, just .to show the
evil effect of the recent foreign
policy of the Hawaiian Government.
Besides the air of mystery with
which our rulers have chosen to en
shroud recent commissions sent to
foreign seats of government, a
policy of the utmost folly has been
adopted in regard to the relations
of this Government with the new
administration in "Washington. Such
articles as that in question, which
every mail now brings, while in
themselves only calculated to afford
amusement at home from their innm-
will be dillicull, if not impossible,
to effectively counteract.
Tin: Liberals have not been badly
beaten, if beaten at all, in England.
At last accounts the had a majority
of five over Conservatives and Irish
A report of u recent meeting of
the Ladies' Silk Culture Society, in
San Francisco, shows an encour
aging vitality in the organization.
It is a pity if we cannot have such a
society in Honolulu.
The latest news from the Orient
states that the Japanese Govern
ment is about to enter into an agree
ment with the Hawaiian Govern
ment for a postal service, in view of
the gradual increase of Japanese
immigrants to the Hawaiiau Islands.
Our foreign news summitry con
tains an account of a dastardly act
of piracy by Chinese passengers on
a British ship. Doubtless the hecret
societies of Chinese, whose murder
ous structure and regulations were
exposed by ex-Marshal Parke, har
bor many such human tigers as per
petrated the atrocities on board tho
Greyhound. Sensible pcoplo can
therefore only rcga-d as criminal the
efforts made in this country to im
pede the making and execution of
laws designed to root these danger
ous institutions out of the laud.
A FRUIT OF MYSTERY.

HAWAII roil SENSATIONAL
San Francisco Post, Dec. 4th.)
Washing ton, Nov. 27tli, Upon
the reassembling of the Senato
President Cleveland will have an
important surprise to lay before it,
to be acted upon in secret session.
It is nothing less than the offer of
Kalakaua to sell his kingdom of
Hawaii to the United .State. Great
Scott! Think of tho Yankee nation
buying up a throne !
It is known that the .Sandwich
Jslautls litwo been in tlie market for
ti number of years, and when King
KtUnkium visited Japan in 1881, ho
mado nn informal offer of his do
minion, but the Mikado would not
then consider it. Since then, how
ever, Japan has sent over two thou
sand of her tanners to Hawaii to
woik upon the sugar plantations for
the purpose of determining if those
islands were a tunable place of resi
dence for a portion of its people.
This. offer of sale is not mere ru
mor, for the German Official (7n
zctte contained an item a few weeks
ago hinting at the same scheme, and
only last week His Excellency J. M.
Kapcna, tho Finance Minister of
King Kalakaua, was in Washington
and had several loim interviews with
the President Cleveland and the
Secretary of Stale. Governor Ka
pcna as he is called, was seen by
our correspondent and interrogated
concerning the proposed sale of Ha
waii, and was dunifoundcd that the
scheme had leaked to a newspaper
man. lie was very reticent, and
politely declined to confirm the ru
mor ; but from the significant hints
which lie dropped it wns plainly
seen that his mission here was of
the highest importance as affecting
the future of tho Sandwich Islands.
While in Washington, Governor
Kanena was closeted for several
days with his Excellency II. A. P.
Carter, tho Hawaiian Minister resi
dent here, and immediately after
the conclusion j)f their conference
Minister Carter sailed for Europe,
as was announced in the press a few
days ago. It is known that he had
received most important orders from
King Kalakaua, and his departure
was hastened by a partial failure of
Governor Kapcna' s negotiations
witli President Cleveland. The
latter would greatly desire to mark
his term of olllcc by extending our
tciritory even to include Hawaii, but
the purchase price, fourteen and a
half million dollars, could not be
paid out without the consent of Con
gress. Therefore, Mr. Cleveland
will ask the Senate what he shall do
about buying the richest group of
islands in the Pacific. The throne
could be utilized as a drawing card
for the National Museum.
It is understood that the money,
in case of a trade being consum
mated, would be distributed as
follows: Haifa million dollars to
each of the nineteen members of the
Hawaiian House of Noblc, and one
million to each of the ioy.il family
viz., King Kalakaua, the Queen,
Princess Liliuokalani, Piincess Like
like and the Dowager Queen Emma.
In addition to the money, King
Kalakaua demands a plantation of
8,000 acres of land, as nearly in a
compact body as possible, in the
--uiiiuni portion of California, and
lnUlSCfL ..-H "la ucsiuuiiaiiis. liu
would then desire to become a citi
zen of the United States.
The painful fact lias been patent
for several years that King Kalakaua
is not a popular sovereign at home,
and, of course, his people arc en
tirely ignorant of any proposition
for selling them out. Perhaps the
King could not deliver the goods,
but it is well known that the sixty
thousand, all told, in his dominion
would gladly hail annexation to the
United States. Bonfires would be
lighted on every hill to celebrate the
glorious event. The dominion could
be governed as a territory, and each
of the eight islands could send a
Delegate to the United States Con
gress. Hawaii is 2,100 miles from
San Fiancisco. American gold coin
is used mostly as currency, it al
ready being legal tender there, and
the exports aggregate a value of
eight million dollars annually, the
chief products being sugar anil rice.
The United States has for years con
trolled nearly all the Hawaiian trade.
and Aineiican merchants are located
all over the dominion.
As an indication of the muimurs
of Kalakaua's subjects, a Honolulu
merchant now in Washington said
to-day that the utter disregard of
the will of the people in the adminis
tration of the government has been
shown in a very defiant maimer.
Money lias been spent recklessly on
appropriations pertaining to royalty,
while needed improvements for the
development of the country have
been deferred for want of funds.
Indignation meetings have been held
in several cities, but the voico of the
people is not heeded. The arbi
trary removal of reliable officials has
Boving commissions liavo been
sent all over the world, while pro
tectorates have been tondered to
savago tribes on various Polynesian
islands. Tho press has spoken out
for tho public's welfaro, and libel
suits without number hnvc boon
commenced by the government. The
House of Nobles is half American,
and annexation would be welcomed.
King Kalakaua is tottering on his
throne, and will try and 'shift for
