MONDAY, APRIL 20, 188C.
Cholera lias appeared thus early
in the season at Briiulisi, Italy,
about seventy cases having occurred.
All Europe shudders with apprehen
sion of the malady's spread. This
year will probably yield as ghastly
a record of the scourge as the pnst
two or three years, and from the
same countries Italy, France,
Spain and Portugal.
The mail brings information that
France is about to annex Haiatca,
Bora Bora and Huahcinc, of the
Society Islands. Mr. Miller, British
Consul at Tahiti, says that, in ac
cordance with the treaty of 1817,
any step that France may take
toward annexation will be in viola
tion of international law. "Wo had
thought that the Empire of Hawaii
had so far advanced toward con
summation that European powers
would abandon all further designs
in the Pacific 1
The demolition of the Sailors'
Home and converting the land on
which it stands into a kind of
public square would be a double
action the removal of an encum
brance and the establishment of u
benefit which all sensible people
will readily endorse. The building,
as it is and where it is, is an un
sightly object, it shuts out light and
cheerfulness, and is the weak point
of attack on the commercial centre
of tho city by fire from that quarter.
More space is very much needed in
that part of the town by the public,
and throwing open this area for the
common benefit would be conferring
an incalculable public boon.
It may be Jtrue that " poets are
born, not made," and not true that
" gardeners, farmers, and planters
are also born and not made." Very
few persons who begin their agricul
tural experience after having given
the early portion of their lives to
some other pursuit ever succeed.
The successful tilleis of the soil are
almost invariably those brought up
to it from youth. The much-vaunted
scientific cultivator who prides him
self on his knowledge of the scien
tific aspects of agriculture, and re
lies upon it for results, is always
beaten by the practical man who
lias learned by long experience how
to get the most out of the soil.
With tho widening of streets in
the burnt district, is it not time the
Minister of the Interior was decid
ing what to do witli the Bcrctania
street railroad? As it lies, it is a
nuisance, robbing the public of
more than a third of that thorough
fare; a dangerous institution, 'in
volving damage to vehicles when in
a thronged state, as it often is, or on
dark nights to carriages passing
each other. If it is to remain, the
roadway should be graded up to
the rails and horse cars put on the
track. Then tho railroad might be
come a public boon. At present, it
is so seldom put to its original pur
pose of carrying road material, that
it is not woith while maintaining it
therefor. Indeed, in that use it is
even more of a nuisance than lying
idle, for the snorting locomotive is
liable to cause fatal runaways.
To-night the Honolulu music
loving public will have the first
opportunity of listening to tho per
formances of Signor Cumpobello
anil his operatic troupe. They come
with a lino leputntiou earned in Han
Prancisco, which they have only to
maintain here to deserve- the most
liberal patronage. Our handsome
Opera House will be no credit to
Jlio community, but rather a moiiu-
tilled only to patronize caterers to
tho comio vein of tho populace,
while presenting a beggarly array of
empty benches to high-class musical
or dramatic talent. On the other
hand, n scries of first-class concerts
being promised the people on this
occasion, the company need not be
warned that the success of the
season will depend on the quality of
the initial performance.
In addition to the news from Wash
ington, which wc were enabled to give
in the few minutes left us after the
arrival of the steamer on Saturday,
the information comes direct that the
Senate Committee on Foreign Rela
tions has been at work on a new treaty
between tho United States and the
Hawaiian Government, and actually
reported up the draft, unanimously,
with an argument for its adoption.
Besides maintaining the commercial
features of the old treaty, it grants
the United States the exclusive and
entire use of Pearl Baj', with the
right to establish there a coaling sta
tion and shipyard. This proposal in
volves the Hawaiian Government in
one of the very. gravest questions
that the kingdom lias ever encounter
ed. To accept it is to abdicate a
measure of independence, as well as
to assume a share of the risks of
America's wars, almost ns great as
that of any State in the Union. To
reject it is tantamount to waiving the
advantage of American alliance, if
not even inviting the covetous eyes
of European powers perhaps invok
ing a deadly international struggle
for possession of this strategic posi
tion, without a duplicate in the
APAltTNEH with about $0,000, to en.
gage In an important business.
