Although few in this ago of
steam and electricity will consider
the statement of an old-time writer,
that " there is nothing new under
the sun," as absolutely correct,
people of reading and researcli are
beginning to realize that much of
what modern advancement has
boasted of as new was known to
tho ancients, was lost by their des
cendants, and has been merely re
discovered in recent times. In a
certain sense and in certain parti
culars advancing civilization is
going back not backwards. That
is, going back and picking up know
ledge and learning possessed by the
ancients and forgotten by succeed
ing generations; for many
acquirements of modem times,
which are generally considered new,
were old to ages away in the remote
past. Going back in this way is
not retrograding, or going from
better to worse, but is advancing,
in the sense of rising from a lower
to a higher grade. Notwithstanding
the fact that a very high degree of
civilization was attained thousands
of j-ears ago by nations of the earth
that afterwards sank into obscurity,
they were apparently, on the whole,
a long way behind the most ad
vanced nations of the present day.
Progress has been steadily on the
march for centuries, and the nearer
the present the greater has been its
Bpeed, until in a decade of this age
a3 much advancement is made as
during a period of ten times as long
in the not very distant past. Wc
have not to search far back to find
matter of surprise and amusement
in the ignorance and superstition of
peoples who are now in the very
front ranks of enlightenment. Ko
doubt, the world is still more back
ward than it may be willing to admit,
and unborn generations will prob
ably refer to our time as a time of
ignorance and semi-civilization.
One thing may be predicted with
a measure of certainly, that civili
zation with all its concomitants will
continue to progress, in spite of any
and all obstacles that may be thrown
in the way of its advance. The set
backs of the past can scarcely occur
in the future. A period of brilliant
intellectual achievements can hardly
be again followed by ages of dark
ness, ignorance and superstition ;
for the reason that we now have one
useful invention which the ancients
knew nothing of the printing
press and through its agency what
is known worth knowing in one
place soon becomes known through
out civilization. It is now almost im
possible by any human means to
obliterate the knowledge acquired.
If one valuable library, like that of
Alexandria, be destroyed by fire,
the information it contains can be
found in a thousand others.
Hawaii, 'too, in common with the
rest of tho would, is bound to retain
what she has acquired and to con
tinue rising higher. Her civiliza
tion is 3'oung, its commencement
scarcely dating back two genera
tions. She has made rapid strides
in the short space of time. As
could not be otherwise reasonably
expected, her people have still much
tp acquire to place them abreast of
the leaders of civilization. But they
have made n good start, and cannot
again return to the heathen super
stitions and practices of a half a
century or so ago. True,' at the
present time, there appears to bo a
desire and an effort in certain quar
ters from which better things were
expected, to revivo the beliefs and
doings of the daik past, but tho
Letter educated poition of the native
people is too enlightened to speak
of them other than with contempt
and ridicule. This effort -w ill prob
ably result in degradation and
shame to tho actors, whilo there is
good ground of hope that the people
will ultimately rise above the super
stitious absurdities sought to bd im
posed upon them.
it is impossible lo read the ttrllclo
repi inted in this paper on Monday
last, from the London Times with
out being impressed with an irrcsis
liblo suspicion that the gicalcr part
of it and the report of the Hawaiian
Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. W.
M. Gibson, are indcntical in their
origin. So close is thu resemblance
both in sentiment and stylo between
the Thtmdcrcr's utterances and tho
terms of tho Minister s report that
the one seems to bo but an echo of
the other. Tho writer of the article
in the Times, if not the author of
the report from which such copious
quotations are made, must have ac
cepted it with a degree of gullibility
that is simply inconceivable on the
part of n wilier in a journal of tho
standing of that paper. The posi
tions assumed in tho course of tho
argument are so consumamtely ridi
culous thai it is scarcely possible
for them to have becn'taken by any
person not inllatcd with the pecu
liar inspiration of the Hawaiian
Forcicn OIllcc. Under any other
circumstances, how was it possible
for a London journalist lo contem
plate seriously and with approval
the wild project put forth in Mr.
Gibson's report of tho Hawaiian
Government establishing a sort of
political tutorship over the distant
islands of Polynesia? "Hccent
events," says Mr. Gibson, "have
evoked on the part of His Majesty a
deep sympathy for communities
kindred in race with the Hawaiian,"
etc. "Another matter," echoes tho
Times, "in which tho Hawaiian
Government is deeply interested is
the condition of the neighboring
Polynesian communities." The con
dition of neighboring communities
is surely one that ought to evoke
very deep sympathy in Hawaii.
They have not been brought under
the beneficent influences of licensed
opium, unlimited gin and hula, and
are, worse than all, without armies
and navies so liberally pioyided for
in Hawaii. These are some of the
"laws, on a civilized pattern" which
the said communities might bo "as
capable as tho llawaiians of forming
for themselves," A Jvahuna Act,
too, "with suitable advice and assis
tance," might also be adopted by
tho Gilbert Islanders, in kindly and
grateful appreciation of the "deep
sympathy of His Majesty for com
munities kindred in race to the
That the writer of the aiticle in
tho Times was grossly misinformed
or was wilfully misrepresenting
facte, for a puiposc, is as clear as
the English language can make it.
He docs not got through two sen
tences until he is among the break
ers of niistepiesontation of facts.
Tho community "governed on con
stitutional principles," would have
been truthfulby represented as a
community living in passive sub
mission under gross and repeated
violations of the constitution, while
the "responsible ministry," as that
phrase is understood by English
men, has not yet been announced in
the Hawaiian Islands.
The expression of the Minister of
Foreign Affairs that "Her satisfac
tory relations with foreign nations
constitute the bulwark of her inde
pendence" is echoed in the sentence
'Thus the keynote of Hawaiian for
eign policy is that of national inde
pendence." The writer or inspircr
of these sentences should have been
honest enough to add that Hawaiian
independence and Hawaiian influ
ence in other Polynesian communi
ties are two entirely different mat
tors, and that those "satisfactory
relations" will be best maintained
by Hawaii confining her paternal
(sympathies with "communities kin
dred in race to the Hawaiian" to the
caie of her own people, and to such
judicious management of her reve
nues as will render her independent
financially of the citizens of foreign
The closing remarks of the writer
for the Ti?ncs that Hawaii is "well
qualified to assist kindred communi
ties" linds curious corroboration in
the fact that the Hawaiian Govern
ment's independence is unequal to
the task of providing the Kingdom
with adequate foreign mail accom
modation. And yet Ministers prate
about their foreign policy. "It is
proposed," says Minister Gibson,
"to send a commissioner to the Gil
It was also "proposed" in tho
Legislature of 1881 to subsidize a
fortnightly steamship mail service to
and from the Coast, to have been
performed by the Oceanic Steam
ship Company. If tho Ministers of
this independent Kingdom had pio-
posed and enforced a contract with
tho company, in terms of the Act,
they would only have done what
every independent government in
tho world does in similar circum
stances. But tho independence
proved itself in the fact that al
though tho specified fortnightly ser
vice collapsed some five months bc
foro the end of tho period named in
the Act, tho subsidy was paid in
full, tho "responsible ministry" not
daring to do otherwise.
A similar service is "proposed"
in the Act of 188G, but this, in turn,
has collapsed, whether temporarily
or permanently remains to bo keen.
Tho Ministers, however, occupy tho
same position of independent im
becile as did their predecessors.
"While thoy cannot provide for carry
ing tho Hawaiian mails, regularly,
to and froih San Francisco, they
coolly propose to send a commis
sioner to tho Gilbert Islands, whoso
functions will doubtless consist
of initiating the unsophisticated
natives of those islands into the
inystciies of appropriation bills( Ihd

A grand billiard tournament, in
which Lon Morris, 1$. Saylor, and
V. 1L McClccry will take part, has
boon arranged for next week. The
place is tho Hawaiian Hotel Billiard
Room, and the tournament will
occupy Monday, Tuesday, and
Thursday evenings of next week.
The game will be straight billiards,
1,000 points each night, the winner
to receive a purse of $200 and gate
receipts. Morris will give each of
his opponents 23 per cent ; that is,
he will have to make 1,000 points to
their 730. McClccry and Saylor will
play on Monday night. On Tucsdny
night Morris will play tho loser of
the previous night's game. On
Thursday night the, two winners will
play the deciding came.
An admission fee of 50 cents will
be charged. The reason of this is
simply to prevent the room being
over-crowded, and to guard against
tho admission of persons that may
bo disposed to be unruly. Mr.
llartlett, the manager of the Hotel,
is desirous of having things con
ducted In a way that tho most fasti
dious caniiol object to. Those who
have attended the exhibitions and
matches in the past know how suc
cessful ho has been in this respect.
The Brunkwick-Balk table on
which the games will be played is
somewhat historical. It may be of
interest to those who delight in
billiards, to say that at a match
game played on this table, in San
Francisco, between McKenna and
Morris, the former mado one run of
1,02.") points, and the latter 1,125
points, Morris, however, finally win
ning the match.
