ARBITRATION SUPERSEDING WAR.
"The Association of the Chamber
of Commerce of the United King-
dom unanimously passeil a resolu
tion advocating an arbitration treaty
with the United States, for the set
tlement of nil ilifllunlties thai may
arise between that country and
England," is an item of news by the
mail brought by the llclgie last
weak. Of late years a strong dis
position has grown up among the
thoughtful of those two gieat
nations, and apparently grows
stronger every year, to settle all dis
putes and misunderstandings which
may occur between them by arbi
tration, instead of resorting to force.
It is to be hoped that the disposi
tion is sufficiently strong to secure,
by solemn treaty, this desirable ob
ject ere long. There are special
reasons why the United Slates and
Great Britain, above all nations,
should always continue on the most
amicable terms, and mutually agree
to arrange any diillcultics that may
happen to arise, by the rational and
humane method indicated. They
are closely related by blood and
language, and their respective insti
tutions and methods of government
have much in common. If these
two great powers decide that aibi
tration shall supersede war, so far
as they arc concerned in their deal
ings with each other, an example
will be furnished to the civilized
world which cannot fail to have in
Uucnce in inducing other nations to
exercise thought in the same direc
tion. Warfare, which is legalized
murder, is a severe reflection on
our boasted civilization and Chris
tian advancement,; and the sooner
it comes to be regarded as barbar
ism, and the Christian nations adopt
a less ferocious method of settling
their differences, the sooner will
they conform to the precepts of the
Great Teacher in whom they profess
-l.UliU-JJUJ.HU Iff WJ1H.
Editok Buu.utix: "Haul in!"
is the curious Honolulu cry when
the police are wanted to catcli a
thief, or to stop some midnight
brawl. One of the curious Hono
lulu sights, too, is the Hawaiian
canoe, with its huge pile of net
heaped up, which the fishermen will
bye-aud-byc take out and spread
out, drawing it then closer and
closer, till the big school of fish finds
itself "roped in." That is the
predicament in which some of us
think we find ourselves through no
purpose or fault of our own.
Wc had supposed, when we went
into this Reform movement, that
wc were going to secure the choice
of officials, and the adoption of meas
ures, that would give us "responsi
ble" government; that is, as we
understood what wc expected, gov
ernment by "responsible," sensible,
honorable people, not by an "irres
ponsible," ignorant, impecunious
Hawaiian. But wc find ourselves in
a very different position from what
wc expected. Our "responsible"
government turns out to be a rather
different affair from what wc thought
wc had a right to expect. "The
power of control in legislation, by
the particular and qualified nega
tivo called a veto," given by the
Constitution to the King, seems to
have so scarud the Cabinet and
Legislature, that they lostthcirwits;
for how else could they have forgot
ten all sense of moral "responsi
bility," in attempting to prove that
the Constitution does not mean what
it says; and that they had not given
to the King what they told him that
they had given him.
Now that the Supreme Court has
decided that the Constitution was
intended to give the King this veto
power, and does give it to him, we
ask those who framed the Constitu
tion and presented it to the King,
who is "responsible" for trying to
make the King and the community
believe, that Article -18 did not give
any such power, and was never in
tended to put any such power in the
hands of the "irresponsible" Ha
waiian? Have we been all those
weeks, clamoring for a "responsi
ble" government, and think that wo
are going to get it by making Minis
ters "responsible," by giviug them
control over tho King, only to find
that wo have been "roped in" to
support a scheme, which was only a
delusion and a snare. Who is "re
Work on our streets has begun
under the direction of the new I?oad
Boarder. Other places may lack
the material to make a Board of,
but Hilo has men who arc both suit
able and willing to undertake this
work. Plirophesies of difficulty in
finding suitable men with public
spirit enough to undertake the vrork
without pay, have faild of fulfilment
i n this district, nt least.
Capt. Mntson, of the briganlino
Lurline, is not in tho habit of put
ting in eighteen days .on the trip
down from San Francisco, and he
declines to break in upon his estab
lished course of action. Conse
quently he is now tinder quarantine
regulations in Hilo Bay. The Lur
line arrived on Tuesday evening,
twelve days out from San Fran
cisco. 11. U, M. S. Caroline arrived
Wednesday and Capt. Sir William
Wiseman took a horse and started
for the volcano soqii nftcr her arrival,
in a regular Hilo rain. By the way,
rain has been falling so much of the
time lately that the stock question,
"Do you think it will rain to-day?"
is giving way to, "How much do
you think it will rain to-day?" A
Thunder-storm kept some nervous
people awake a good part of last
Tuesday night. Wedncsdnj' after
noon, when the clouds cleared away
a little, Mauna lCca showed about as
much snow as she ever exhibits.
