AH ISLAND REPUBLIC.
One of the grandest oppoi Utilities
for the creation of n, great Island
Republic is slipping uway witliout
any 1 csults. All the more inipot tant
small inlands in tbe Pacillc Ocean ti
fcv degrees north and south of the
Equator, where thcie is n consider
able population, have had a gieat
deal 'of missionary work done in the
way of civilizing and christianizing
the native population. It was a
surprise to many to learn recently
of the great number of churches
and church members of the gioup
known as the Caroline Islands. The
Hawaiian Islands are the most im
poitant centers of missionniy oper
ations in. behalf of the small islands
beyond. The Gilbert, Marshall and
Caroline Islands have been civilized
through the efforts, principally, of
missionaries who have been sent out
from the Hawaiian Islands.
On all islands where American
missionaries have been the chief in
struments m bringing about the
civilization of the natives, there has
been a strong disposition to regard
such islands as so much under
American influence, that other na
tions have nofcaicd to interfere, or
at least to asscit any claim of sover
eignty. It is ti ue the French did,
some years ago, hoist the Hag of that
nation as an emblem of sovricignty
at Honolulu; but it was quickly
taken down again. That freak of
attempted boveieignty gave great
offense; but by the sudden with
drawal of all claims, the affair passed
nearly out of sight. "When Germany
and Spain put in counter claims to
the Caroline Islands, it was found
that the only work of civilization
which had ever been wrought there
was that of Ainciicau missionaries
who never hcaid of any Spanish
claim to sovereignty, and it was
quite ccitaiu that the natives had
never hcaid of any. As a matter
of equity the strongest claim to
sovereignty would have been that
of the United States, or, rather,
perhaps, that of the Hawaiian King
dom, because m6st of the raission
aiies and tcacheis had gone from
that Kingdom to those outposts.
Tbe Federal Government of this
country has never shown any strong
desire to acquire sovereignty over
any part of the island world. It
could have taken possession of the
Hawaiian Islands long ago. That is
hardly now a secret. It refused to
sanction the purchase of San Do
mingo. In shoit, its policy has
been one commcl territory. These
outlying islands in the Pacific, there
fore, are not likely to be organized
into a Republic by any policy
adopted by the United States. But
there is the Hawaiian Kingdom which
has been civilized and christianized
through the long and patient woik
of American missionaries. This
small Kingdom might have been
made the nucleus of a great island
nation. It could have asserted
sovereignty over a thousand islands,
and it is piobable that claim would
never have been seriously disputed.
As for the natives of most of these
islands, they do not caic a bauble
who governs them, so they are left
to follow their own ways. The Ha
waiian Kingdom will miss the great
opportunity for the consolidation of
a great island nation, which could
have been effected without violence,
simpby because there is not force
. enough in the native population to
accomplish anything in that way.
Moreover, any plan of annexation
would depend largely for its success
pn tne missionaries wuu uvn, wi
their influence in these small islands.
Now these missionaries kuow that
the Hawaiian Government for some
years has not been very friendly to
missionary influence in that King
- dom. That influence has never ap
proved of many of the lax ways
which have crept into tho Adminis
tration. It has never been satislied
with the lack of character in some
of the men who have been in the
Cabinet. In shoit the missionary
traditions have all been on the side
of incorruptible men and incorrupti
The missionary paity just now
has not a great deal of confidence in
the Administration. It has been
quite the fashion for those who ap
proved of the recent drift of the
Hawaiian Government to designato
tho opposition as the "Missionary"
party. It is notctl also that the
disappearance of the native popula
tion in the Hawaiian Island is
rapid. With this decadence there
will also be a commcnsuiatc dis
appearance of native influence.
Some day the native Government
will ceaso from sheer inability to
maintain it. A great native sover
eign in tho Hawaiian Kingdom, with
a large native population at his
(jack, might have made one of the
strongest island kingdoms in the
world. His opportunity has slipped
away if, indeed, it ever came to the
reigning sovereign or any of his im
Tho caso might bo entirely differ
ent if tho Government of tho Ha
waiian Kingdom were now adminis
tered by a wlitte race. There is.
now an umlerBttmdiDB among all tli'o
leading nations that tho independ
ence of Hawaii shall be respected.
That status would undoubtedly be
maintained if the sovereignty were
to pass from the natives to an
Anglo-Saxon or any other popula
tion. Important events might then
be anticipated in rapid succession.
A navy would be created, islands
.would be visited, the Hag of a new
or enlarged island Kingdom would
bo run up. The Republic of Oeea
nica might take its place among tho
family of great nations, llceatise
there is no "ng central govern
ment around v ' these island
communities cm ' ' "allied it is
probable that all tin -, portiinitics
will be lost. In default of any such
central and consolidated effort, these
small islands will for a long time bo
only as a bone of contention. They
will be appropriated hero and there;
a gieat deal of iiritalion will be the
lesult. The native population will
retrograde. If account is taken of
the vast amount of money contri
buted to the woik of civilizing and
christianizing these islands, and the
many noule lives wmcii nave ueen
given to the same work, it would
seem that some better fate should
be in store for these island commu
nities now than to become the vic
tims of any kind of aibitrary and
corrupting rule which might bo im
posed upon them by remote govern
ments. If it is too early to put in
operation any plan of federation, it
is not too early, hi lite estimation of
some of the European nation's, to
