AN ISLAND REPUBLIC.
Tin' reprint article, mulct the
above heading, from the San Fran
cisco Jitilhtin, which appears in
our issue lo-ilay, gives a much bet
ter view of social conditions and
opinions on these' Islands than we
are accustomed to read in the
columns of out big foreign contem
poraries. It is true that very large
conttibutions of money and laborers
have been made by the religious
bodies of the States for civilizing
and Christianizing the Islands, and
it is no less true that the " lax ways
which have crept into the adminis
tration" would, if not vigorously
opposed, in a very shoit time, undo
all tho Christianizing and civilizing
which have been accomplished ; -and
the heathen practices of past ages
would be restored, and to them
would be superadded the more re
fined depravity of the worst phases
of perverted civilization.
In the United Spates, and other
countries possessing complete con
stitutional systems, and a hcalthy
tone of public opinion, an erratic
administration can be brought to
book, but in this Kingdom, a large
number of the so-called representa
tives are virtually the personal pro
pert' of the administration, being
civil service olllcials, and the tone
of public opinion is very well ex
pressed by our trans-l'acilio name
sake, "As for the natives of most
of these islands, they do not care a
bauble who governs them, so they
arc left to their ways." The Cab
inet, is therefore practically beyond
the reach of those corrective bi
ll nonces which bear directly upon
governments in other countries.
The ideas advanced in the article
referred to, that a great Inter-Island
Republic may be formed here, either
independently or by annexation to
some otlrer power, may bo worth
taking into serious consideration at
some future day. At present,
events arc not ripe for transferring
the matter from the arena of jour
nalistic speculation to the field of
practical politics. The Inter-Island
Republic is something very pretty
for newspaper men to dream about,
but the present social structure of
this Kingdom is of too heterogeneous
a character to admit of any mdical
changes in our autonomy or in our
relations to other powers. The first
and greatest task before the states
men of Hawaii, if there arc any, is
to secure for the Kingdom free and
independent representative institu
tions. "When public opinion acquires
sulllcient momentum to effect the
present much needed reforms, it
will have developed some of the
neeessaiy qualillcations for dispos
, ing of questions of great national
The public debt of the United
States was reduced during the
month of October, over thirteen
millions of dollars. Will any one
tell us how much the Hawaiian
national debt was reduced during
the same period?
There is great activity in the
Roman Catholic Chinch throughout
the United States, on the temper
ance question, owing to a strong
letter' issued by the Plenary Council
at Baltimore. Already the saloon
keepers belonging to the Church 'in
Philadelphia have been induced to
give up their Sunday tralllc.
George Augustus Sala left Auck
land, New Zealand, on Dec. 2nd, for
Sydney, N. S. W. The latter days
of his stay in the former city were
spiced with a little unpleasantness,
caubeil by the JJcll deprecating
Mxo honors paid to a, newspaper
correspondent and nn actor (Sain
and Uoucicnult), who it intimated
hail only selfish objects in visiting
the country. At a farewell lcccp
tion by prominent citizen'' on the
day of his dcparluic, Sala wannly
resented the ungenerous treatment of
the newspaper above-named. The
Hell promised to give him u .'ili'
dlctory in its next issue
A private letter fjoni Washing

regards this as a peculiar act on the
pail of the Government, when lion.
Dr. Smith, a gentleman thoroughly
conversant with Hawaiian interests
as well as devoted to them, is in
Washington, it is supposed, on Gov
ernment business. Particularly is

he represented cffeclivelj' at the
present time, when Congress is sit
ting and action may be taken pre
judicial to the Treat at any mo
ment. A special despatch to the Provi
dence Journal from London states
that a portion of Sir John Mac
donald, the Canadian Premier's,
business in the metropolis is to con
fer with Lord John Manners, the
Imperial Postmaster-General, at the
lattcr's desire, on the subject of
subsidizing the Canadian Pacific
Railway for conveying the British
mails to India, China and Australia.
This looks promising for Honolulu
becoming a port of call, in the near
future, for another very important
line of steamships, accompanied,
perhaps, with a measure of reci
procity providing for a free cxchairge
of Hawaiian products with at least
the coal and lumber of the Dominion
THE ALLEGED WASTE OF WATER.
Kimon Bi'j.i.rriN : My statement
in your Monday's paper that the
artesian wells at Waialua wcic per

trustworthy. I am glad to learn by
the statement of Mr. Gasper Sylva
that I was misinformed. I' would
not knowingly do him an injustice.
