THE CONFEDERACY OF HAWAII.
Under the above betiding the fol
lowing article appears in the San
Franeibco Jiulletin. It is interesting
from its elucidation of the Hawaiian
Ooverninent's foreign "policy," that
is so enshrouded in mystery, for some
incomprehensible reason, at home.
Instead of a protectorate, a sort of
tutorship of neighboring groups is
proposed. There is something ex
ceedingly rich, which cannot be ap
preciated outside of this kingdom
under present auspices, in the sug
gestion that "the new state should be
under tho tutelage of persons sent
from Hawaii to teach the islanders
self-government." Wiiat rich green
pastures such an arrangement would
afford for tho linkers, Ilayseldens and
Lilikalanis of Hawaii, in danger of
foundering from a protracted dietary
of stall provender J Great pity it is,
however, for tho pampered but un
satisfied herds, that thu coveted fresh
fields have all been appropriated by
Germany and Spain, tints rudely
awakening the Hawaiian Magi from
their luxurious dreams of lucrative
state pedagoguisni over the less-favored
isles of the Pacific.
It would appear from the article
quoted below as if the Hawaiian
Government, in this ambitious
scheme of acquiring tutorship in the
m"t of government over the neigh
boring groups, is trading upon the
prestige won for this country by its
large Christian missionary enter
prises in those islands. To those
who know tho attitude of tho Gov
ernnlent toward the missionary cle
ment of Hawaii, and the avidity
with which their supporters make a
political weapon of the vulgar and
reactionary -prejudice against what
is' popularly but improperly termed
tho " missionary party," this phase
.pf the Government's Polynesian
policy will appear In Its true light
as tho rankest hypocrisy. The
Government people may Well charac
terize themselves, by implication as
they have done, " tho patty of im
If all the visionary exploiting of
our Foreign Office was done at the
private charges of the man or men
who are carried away by the pros
pective honors accruing therefrom,
the matter might be dismissed with
a smile at the matured vanity pro
jecting it. Hut these foreign em
bassies after will-o'-the-wisps are
using up the scant revenues of this
kingdom, while the most necessary
and important domestic services en
trusted to the Government are
starving and decaying for want of
the means of sustentntion. Here is
the article upon which the foregoing
comments are based:
A writer In the Loudon Times of
November 20th thus outlines the objects
of the vNIt to Europe of a Commis
sioner from thu Sandwich Islands:
"The Hon. II. A. P. Carter. MlnNter
for Hawaii at Washington, has arrived
In Europe on a special iuiioii to tho
Onvcrniucnts of (treat Britain. France,
Germany aud Spain. Mr. Carter, who
Is a native of the Sandwich Me, but
of American parentage, has been a
resilient In Washington for some years,
and wa Intrusted with the negotiation
of the Reciprocity Treaty with the
Fnlted States, which has ilonu so much
to Increase the prosperity of Hawaii,
aud he has In addition 'made several
visits to Europe upon the business of
the Foreign Olllce of Honolulu. I'pon
the present occasion Mr. Carter Is the
bearer of an Important proposal from
the Government of King iCalakaua with
reference to the future of the Marshall
and the Gilbert Islands. These Islands
contain a population of about .-eventy
thou-aml, who, within the lnt few
years, have become civilized aud Chris
tianized through the exertions of Ameri
can and Hawaiian Congregational mis
sionaries, all of whom had tho Sand
wich Islands as the base of their opera
tions aud who have expended In their
enterprise about 80,000. It is now
suggested that these groups should be
allowed to federate on the same lines,
but not with, the Hawaiian Islands,
that their autonomy should be pre
set cd and that with some slight modi
fication the Hawaiian system of govern
ment should be extended over all these
islands In the Central Pacific which at
thu present moment have not been an
nexed and colonlcd by any European
power. Mr. Carter would 'be glad to
see the sunc principle extended to the
Caroline Iland. thu Inhabitants of
which resemble in many respects llioi-c
In the Marshall and Gilbert groups, jf
the proposal meet with the approval of
England. Germany and Spain. It Is
suggested that In the llrst instance the
new state should be under the tutelage
of persons sent from Hawaii to teaeh
the islanders self-government. The
Sandwich Islands afford a remarkable
instance of a native Polynesian race
adopting European civilization. The
Government is in tho hands of n Sover
eign, a House of Peers, and a House of
Commons. The laws are founded on
those of the United States: education is
coinpuUory, and life and property arc
as safe and as well protected as in any
other part of tho world. The popula
tion N about eighty-six thousand; the
revonue two hundred thousand pounds a
year, the Imports, 1,100,000, and the
exports, 1,000,000. The only draw
back to the prosperity of Hawaii Is tho
gradual decline of the withu popula
tion, which does not exceed 18,ooo, while
there arc about -10,000 foreigners Chi
nese, Japanese, Portuguese, and Cauca
sians, as persons from Europe and the
United States are termed. But the
Government of Hawaii assert that the
stringent measures they have taken In
order to stamp out leprosy have been
successful, and that there Is every pro
bability that In future years the census
of the native population will show a
small but steady increase. Efforts were
made some years ago on the part of the
people of lljinnd Samoa to Induce the
Hawaiian Ministry to Interfere with
their affairs, but the negotiations failed
because it was considered that these
Islands were outside tho legitimate In
fluence of the Honolulu Government.
But the advisers of King Kalakaua have
come to the conclusion that the Interests
of their own country and those of the
Caroline, Gilbert and Marshall groups
would bo furthered if these latter wcru
assisted to carry out the policy which
has worked o well in tho ease of the
Olllcial directions regarding the
mode of qualifying ns voters, by
persons exempt from taxes, are set
forth in to-day's paper by tho Attorney-General.
A mass meeting was held at Wai
kiki last night. Among six speakers
for the Government, " a rising young
lawyer" is mentioned hyiho Adver
liscr. Had lie been on the other side
that paper would have nothing better
for him than " a tramp."
LETTER FROM MR. J. 0. CARTER.
Kim ok JJumxtix: An editorial
writer in the Advertiser of to-dny
professes to have been somewhat at
a loss as to tho treatment Ix-sts.ultcd
for the meeting held in tho base
ment of the Kaumakapili Church on
Monday evening last. Whether to
treat it as a broad burlesque or
seriously was tho question. The
writer elected to treat it seriously,
and in this showed better sense tliap
is displayed elsewhere in iiis article.
So far ns I am concerned, it seems
better to treat the political bltuutfoji
of this Kingdom seriously nnd
carnesjtly, and in talking with voters
the fact is forcibly impressed upon
mo that they, too, are tiring of the
mockery of administration of public
affairs. So far, then, tho writer or
the Advert isor the voters and my
self nro agreed. My remarks nt the
meeting are said to huVc been errone
ous, absurdly crude, disingenuous,
indelicate, in bad taste and indica
tive of ignorauce. All this is a
matter of opinion and I am con
strained to bellevo is not generally
concurred in by the public who
attended thu meeting.
In regard to the financial condi
tion of the Government, I do not
wish to think that the Advertiser
writer is willfully ignorant. That
the writer is ignorant is apparent to
the creditors of tho Government,
the parties most interested. I have
not said that the interest on the
public debt is unpaid. I do not
think that the Ministers arc fools,
whatever else I may think of them.
So long as they arc mendicant bor
rowers they will hardly decline to
wy interest on money already bor
rowed. To say that the Government
bonds icilt be paid as they mature
is misleading. The fact is that they
have not been paid as they matured.
A considerable sum of the nine per
cent bonds lias been illegally ex
tended. If the credit of tho Gov
ernment is in sound as the Adver
tiser believes, why with available
assets worth five times the amount
of the present national debt and
other Governments borrowing money
at live percent why, may 1 ask,
does not the Government sell its
seven percent bonds and take up the
nine percent bonds. This simple
method of reducing the interest on
the national debt would suggest it
self to the merest novice in finance.
It must seem strange to the readers
of the Advertiser that persons would
send money out of this Kingdom
seeking investment at five and six
percent interest because they could
not get twelve percent here, and at
the same time, the Government has
hawked its seven percent, free of
taxes, bonds about our streets. There
must be something rotten in the state
of Hawaii. Surely all our money
lenders arc not fools.
Now, as to the question of bad
taste in my reference to the affairs
of the unfortunate Kunuiakea. Tho
illustration wns not made with any
improper feeling on my part, and
docs not seem to others to have
been so altogether out of place as
the Advertiser writer deems it to be.
As a retort 1 may be permitted to
say that it seems to me, and to
some others, to be in bad taste to
be so repeatedly taking Colonel
Sprockets by the coat collar and
posing him before this community
as the only public benefactor we
benighted islanders have ever had.
The writer for the Advertiser lias
my thanks for coining a new word
to illustrate what ho is pleased to
believe was usurious practice. This
bit of wit salts the whole article.
Seriously, let me say that when
Hie Government will pay its creditors
with something better than pro
mises or homilies on their duty as
patriots the Government credit will
stand better. The Government must
not think that all its creditors will
follow the example of poor Mr.
Oakley. Some of them, at least,
are made of sterner stuff.
