A PLEA FOR THE TREATY.
The Alia California of the 13th
inst. has a powerful plea for the
retention of the Hawaiian treaty,
based partly upon information given
in the following extract from the
" A commissioner from the Domi
nion was delegated to the Hawaiian
Government, in effect to arrange a
protocol for n treaty to transfer the
rich commerce now plying to this
port to the Pacific terminus of the
Canadian Pacific Railway. This
commissioner has returned and re
ported, and in his report one icads
the waiting attitude of England in
the matter. National influence
threads upon the treaty. Ours lias
by that means become paramount,
but witli the fall of the treaty it
falls never to regain its footing."
The article goes on to press, by
an array of facts and figures, the
commercial argument, and con
cludes, "We do not believe the
treaty is doomed, for wc do not
believe that English influence has
yet readied the height in our Con
gress which its abrogation would
THE NEW BROOM.
Editor Bullutin: I think our
community should be very thankful
to His Excellency the Minister of
Interior for promoting and appoint
ing the new Postmaster-General.
The new olllcial in time will meet with
the full approval of the public. He
is a lawyer and ho understands the
English language well, and in
making fresh postal treaties he will
be of invaluable assistance to the
Government. lie will be able to
select from the postal laws of for
eign countries such of the laws as
will be of advantage in our kingdom.
It is to be regretted that David
Manaku, who lias been a faithful
olllcer in tho postal department for
so long a time, had not been ap
pointed as Deputy Postmaster, but
I suppose the Minister of Interior
had good reason for ignoring his
1 have no doubt the Minister will
now be able to carry out the reforms
in the department to his satisfac
tion, which hitherto he has not been
able to do. The postal department
is one of the most important under
tho Government, one that the busi
ness community take a deep interest
in, and doubtless the Minister of
Interior had that fact in view when
he nominated the present head of
the service. The postal arrange
ments on the other islands will now
be attended to, 'and the postal money
order system that lias been inaugu
rated will be extended to all the
offices in the kingdom which have
previously not battue benefit of it.

A hot discussion is proceeding in
the British House of Commons, on
a motion bj' Gladstone for leave to
introduce a bill granting home rule
to Ireland. By the rules a division
cannot be taken on the motion. Lord
Randolph Churchill, on the 12th,
fiercely nttacked the proposal, say
ing the effect of home rule would
be to free Ireland from tho su
premacy of Parliament and the
sovereignty of the Queen. From
Irish calculations, it is regarded as
very doubtful if tho bill will pass
