SATUltDAY, MARCH U, 188G.
JAPAN AND HAWAII.
Japan is bouudiiiK forward in the
race of civilization at a rate unpre
cedented among any people hitherto
heard of. Railroads, telegraphs,
schools, colleges, and alt the other
engines of progress arc being placed
in position throughout the Empire.
Foreigners are recognized as essen
tial factors in the improvements
going on, and the' arc eagerly wel
comed to the country. Jn this par
ticular, the Japanese Government
shows rather more of the quality of
common sense than does that of
Hawaii, as will more fully appear
when the programme of next legis
lature is announced. The $10,000,
000 loan, the repeal of the opium
law, repeal of the gold law, the
lottery bill and other measures
abhorrent to the intelligent and
right-thinking portion of tho foreign
population, may be expected to be
pushed forward, whether the Minis
tors whose individual opinions arc
opposed to these measures, like them
or no. Tho right men will be found
in the light places to do the dirty
work of advocating whatever schemes
of national retrogression may be
committed to them. These pet
schemes which certain members of
the legislature were elected to put
forward will not need to wait, us in
countries possessing constitutional
systems of government, in reality
as well as in name, to be fathered
hj the Ministry. And the Kingdom
may consider itself extremely for
tunate, if, at the close of next
meeting of the legislature, the acts
of 1880 do not show the shadow on
the deal of the national statute book
to have gone many degrees back
waid. Japan is marching bravely
forward, but that the trend of events
in Hawaii is backward, is but too
painfully apparent to every wcll
wisher of tho nation and tho people.
The town of Geneva, New York,
boasts of the dug up bones of a
mastodon, n giant of tho olden time.
The tusk is 8 feet long and 2 feet in
circumference. The animal was i.'5
feet long and Ifi feet high. The
unticpiarians of Hawaii will not like
ly bo able to linmnrtnll,:c them
selves by unearthing old time giants,
as the lava was probably too hot for
vegetation when mastodons flourish
ed on tho giant grasses of the pre
Adnmic ages ; but while the inhabi
tants of other countries arc discover
ing the physical greatness of their
Darwinian forefathers, the Ha
waiian is more than satisfied that he
can find no ancestry in the aeons of
the past to whom ho cannot look
back with sentiments of personal
respect. Nor will our naturalists
ever have occasion to feel jealous of
the fossil acquisitions of their con
freres in other countries while they
can claim the boss volcano of the
Roman Catholic Catukdiiai..

Tho Itotkchilds linn is said to be

of all these accumulations, Mayor

RING THE BELL SOFTLY.
Editou Bulletin-: A little over
30 years ago how time llics? on
January 1, 18.rj(i, in company with
three youthful companions, I went
to the house of a gentleman and
lady residing on Clementina street,
in tho city of San Francisco, for the
double purpose of making a New
Year call and taking part in the
birthday anniversary festivities of
their only child and (laughter, a
beautiful young girl, who on that
day was to have completed her
eighteenth year. Judge of our
grief and bitter disappointment
when, on arriving in front of their
residence, we were informed by a
friend who had just emerged from
thence that Catherine Blanche Car
rolton, the idol of all who knew her,
lay within dead. On the previous
evening she was enjoying herself
with a ciicle of friends who had
collected at her father's house for
tho purpose of watching the Old
Year go out and the New Year come
in. A funny remark made 03 one
of the party caused her to laugh
heartily; this brought on a lit of
severe coughing, during which one
of the blood vessels of her heart
was ruptured, and she died just as
the lirst strokes of the city bells
began sounding the knell of the
dying year. That evening I made
my first attempt at sentimental
poetiy, and how well I succeeded
may be judged bv the fact that
during the intervening years I have
occasionally stumbled across my
lines in different publications over
the signatures of no less than four
separate claimants for the honor of
their authorship. The lines pro
duced bclow'arc unlike what 1 then
composed with the exception of the
lirst and two last lines of each ersc.

peared from sight and memory.

The exports of the Dominion of
Canada, for the six months ending
Dec. Ill 1885, are quoted at 52,751,
145, and the Imports 18,077,759.
In proportion to population, tho ex
ports of Hawaii arc live times as
large. There is some advantage in
a. climate running four seasons
simultaneously, over one that counts
seasons singly, four in each year.
If Canada would get abreast of
Hawaii in the item reexports, blie
must run her latitude down souio
thirty degrees nearer the equator,
which she cannot very well do witli-
out getting into Uncle Sam's country.
