MR. DACGETT'S MISSION.
The Buu.ktik did not give all the
information it was possessed of res
pecting Mr. Daggett's mission to
"Washington. Some reservation was
made in consideration of possible
slate interests. However, enough
was published to relieve the Hawaiian
public's curiosity, if 'not anxiety,
with regard to the nature of the
embassy. This paper was never
imposed upon in the matter. From
the first its position has simply been
that this Government should explain,
so far ns could be done without
prejudice to itself or the country,
tho character of Mr. Daggett's com
mission, so as to counteract the
undoubted mischief created by the
false report originating in San Fran
cisco and circulated throughout
Christendom. Now that the Bum.k
tin has discharged this duty for the
Government, we can stand the Aih
vertiser's chagrin at being anticipated
in its usual privilege of having
precedence in ollicial news.
GLADSTONE ON EVOLUTION.
The Nineteenth Century for
November contains an article from
the pen of Gladstone, on the "Dawn
of Creation and of Worship." It is
an answer to a recent work by M.
Hevillc. When most people natur
ally supposed that the "grand old
man" was fully engrossed with con
corn for the general elections and
distracted, by dissensions in his own
party, he was in reality employing
his time in writing an essay in theo
logy. This latest effort of the
British statesman is full of vigor and
eloquence. Following are his con
cluding sentences :
"Evolution, that is, physical evo
lution, may be true (like the solar
theory), may be delightful and
wonderful ; but are we really to un
derstand that varieties of animals
brought about by domestication, the
wasting of organs (for instance, the
tails of men) by disease, the natural
selection and the survival of the
fittest, all in the physical order, ex
hibit to us the great arcanum of
creation, the sum and center of life,
so that mind and spirit are de
throned from their old supremacy,
and no longer sovereign by right,
but may find somewhere by chaiity
a place assigned to them, as append
ages, perhaps only as excrescences
of the material creation ? .... For
those who believe that the old
foundations arc unshaken still, and
that the fabric built upon them will
look down for ages on the floating
wreck of many a modern and boast
ful theory, it is difllcult to see any
thing bul infatuation in the destruc
tive temperament which leads to the
notion that to substitute n blind
mechanism for the hand of God in
the affairs of life is to enlarge the
scope of icmedial agency; thnt to
dismiss the highest of all inspira
tions is to elevate the strain of
human thought and life ; and that
each of us is to rejoice that our
several units are to be disintegrated
at death into 'counllohs millions of
organisms,' for such it seems is the
latest revelation from the fiagilo
tripod of a modern Delphi."
Of late years, thoughtful and
patriotic'inon on -both sides of tho
Atlanticjiavc Advocated the idea of
alliance between the United States
and Great Britain,, the two nations
being Of tho snmc blood and the
same Jangimgo constituting tho
strongest possible natural bond of
union. One of the latest contribu
tions to this cause is by Mr. J. D.
Dougull in the Contemjwnmj Jle
view for last month. He sums up
"If an alliance between England
and the United States seemed
reasonable to a responsible states
man in 1871, it is certainly more so
in 1885. If then there wcro signs of
tho decrease of internat'onal antipa
thies, thcie is now every sign of re
markabje turuiug of the hearts of tho
fathers to tbc children awl of tho
children to the fathers, omen of a
better nge. If then the commercial
policies of tho two peoples wcro as
the poles apart, there is now a
reasonable prospect that national
cxclusivcncsH h about to yield to
international coidiality. If England
was then hopelessly aristocratic, she
has now taken power from the hands
of the Lords and the landlords. If
tho United Slates was wedded lo
her eighteenth-century Constitution,
she is now the scene of movements
to secure a non-political civil service,
a permanent 'udiciary, and, most
noteworthy oi u ', responsible gov
ernment. If 1m j hincn did not
then know Canada i 1 1 the United
States, they tiro now Mossing the
sea in streams to study the future
center of their race. If Americans
then held everything English in con
tempt, they are now largely nilcd
by English ideas and modes, the two
countries assimilating rapidly as they
know each other better, and both
are beginning to sec how gieat a
wealth they have in each other's
kinship. Tlicy arc more ready than
ever, not only to see good in each
other, but to realise the splendid
vision suggested by a permanent
alliance. To England the alliance
is desirable, as the future of the
lace seems undoubtedly as much
connected with America as with
England ; to the United States it is
desirable, as the past of the race
belongs inalienably lo England, :s
England possesses an expansive elas
ticity which the United States en
vies, and as the alliance of the two
countries would bring all the waste
places of tho eai Hi under the ieg'19
of the joint power, whose common
Hag would be a messenger of peace
to the world."
Eurron Bulletin: It gives mo
pleasure to report artesian water
standing forty feet and six inches
above sea level, as by the gauge on
the St. Lawrence well. This is
higher than it has been for two
years. Commencing at forty-two
feet eight inches in July, 1882, the
wells fell at about an inch per
month. My record of January
22nd, 1881, is forty feel four inches.
It has meantime been as low as
forty feet one inch.
These wells are evidently affected
by long and heavy rains, although no
rise is observed after some con
siderable rainfalls. We may hope
that with some prudence in the use
of them they may flow on forever.
Of say thiity wells in this Honolulu
or Kona artesian basin all but two
or three arc capped as the law of
1881 requires. The exceptions be
long to Chinamen. They have been
running night and day and every
day since they were bored, and arc
the greatest ruin and the greatest
danger to this wonderful and bene
ficent water supply. In the Wailua
district a sei ies of wells are running
without restraint and most waste
fully making, I am informed, a
considerable brook flowing into the
sea. This is a public wrong and
should be restrained by enfoi cement
of the law. We have reason to
think, however, that the wells out
side the Kona, and perhaps the Ewa
district draw from different basins
and may hope that their waste does
not injure the Honolulu wells.
