SATURDAY. DEC. 18, 188G.
THE HAWAIIAN RIDDLE.
The flnauctal condition of tho
Kingdom of Hawaii is a mattor to
tthlch tho United States cannot
alford lo Iju indifferent. When the
Legislature met on the Jllst March
last, the Minister of Finance report
ed that the public debt, tthich had
been $898,800 on the 31st March,
1881, had increased to S1,0G5,GU0
on the 31st Mutch, 1880. There is
ii'iisoti to belioe that this statement
was not absolutely conect, and that
it (lid not take into account a num
ber of open accounts for which the
royal Treasury was liable. It is
slated on tjood authority that the
debt is nearer ? 1,300.000 than
$1,0135,000. A considerable por
tion of this, represented by notes of
hand and bonds, bears 1) per cent
interest. On top of this, the Legis
lattuo authoiized a two million loan
to bu negotiated in England, lo be
secured by a pledge of the revenues
of the Hawaiian Kingdom. When
the Act authorizing this loan was
passed, holdeis of over-due bonds
and notes of the Government pre
sented them to the Treasury for
payment. They wcic told there
were no assets available for the pui
posc, and it was intimated that as to
the bonds, the piesent Government,
which has just taken ofllcc, was con
sidering the propriety of denying
their legality, on the ground that
the Administration which had issued
them had exceeded its powers.
Meanwhile an agent had gone to
Kngland to try and float the new
A serious complication may grow
out of these ciicumstances. The
public levcnues of the islands will
piobably fall short of the appropria
tions by not less than $1,250,000 in
the biennial peiiod of 1880-1888.
It seems hardly possible that Ha
waii can meet the interest on the
new bonds, if they arc negotiated.
If the bonds are sold to Englishmen
and default is made in the payment
of coupons, pressure will.be brought
to bear on the British Government
to interfere on behalf of tho credi
tors. If at that time the Govern
ment of Great Biitain happens to be
in prudent hands, the application
will be fruitless, for no wise miuis
ter would wantonly take a step
which would strain our lclations
with England to a snapping point.
But if the Jingoes should chance lo
be in power at the time, it is possi
ble that some such light-weight
statesman as Randolph Churchill
might try to divert attention from
domestic troubles by getting up a
iluiry with this country over a
Biitish annexation of the islands.
The worst of these cases is that
no one can foresee what incidents
may occur to aggravate them. News
that an English man-of-war had
sailed to Hawaii, and demanded
payment of certain coupons under a
tlu'eat of occupying one or moieof
the islands, would lead to such an
explosion of fury in this country
that jt might be difficult to prevent
the depaiture of filibustering expc
ditions. Thus the two nations might
be set by the ears through the rash
ness ot ambitious oiilceis or irre
sponsible adventuiers. It is unfor
tunate that the Kingdom ot Hawaii
should, at this crisis, be on its last
legs financially, politically and
morally. Any day we may hear of
a revolution and of the overthrow of
the King. Twice during the last
session of the Legislature his Min
istry resigned, and one after an
other all his white friends and coun
selors seem lo have deserted him.
An early revolution would of course
be fatal to any linancial negotiation
in London. But if the bonds were
negotiated first, and tho revolution
came afterwards, thero might be
some apparent excuse for foreign in
tervention on the ground that it was
required in the interests of peace,
order and civilization.
Perhaps it might be worth' the
while of Secretary Bayard to call
the attention of Minister Phelps to
the case. It is out of the power of
an English ministry lo prevent
Englishmen fiom investing their
money as they sec lit. But an au
thoiilative declaration from the Bri
tish Government that under no cir
cumstances would it interfere to
collect debts due to Englishmen by
the Hawaiian Government would at
any rate bo an indication of a proper
legard for American feelings and
American lights. And simultane
ously, it might not bo out of tho
way for Mr. Cleveland's Adminis
tration to begin to consider what
policy they would pursue if such a
tiling should occur as the collapse
of the Hawaiian Kingdom. S, V.
Bulletin, December 2nd.
Civil perturbations in the Samoan
Islands have, dining the past few
years, been a source of considerable
embarrassment to tho three govern
ments Germany, Great Biitain and
the United States whose relations
and extia-territorial rights in that
important group aro guaranteed by
treaties. The weakness of tho native
administration and tho conllict of
opposing interests in tho islands have
led King Malietoa to seek alliance or
protection in some ono quarter; re
gardless of the distinct engagements
whereby no ono of tho three treaty
powers may acquire any paramount
or exclusive interest. In May last
Malietoa oifcrcd to put Samoa under
the piotcction of the United States,
and tho late Consul, without author
ity, assumed to grant it. Tho pio
cccdlng was promptly disavowed,
and the overzonlous oflicial recalled.
Special agents of the three govern
ments have been deputed to cxamino
tho situation in tho islands. With a
change in the representation of all
threo powers and an harmonious
understanding between them, tho
peace and prosperity and the auton
omous administration and uculialily
of Samoa can haidly fail to be
secured. The President's message.

has concluded to form a private cor

immense enterprise to a successful
