LET IT END.
, The Chinese question, as discuss
ed during the last, week or two past
in the columns of the llcunix, is
pretty well worn out, and if our
readers are in the same state of
feeling as ourselves they are about
sick of it. llotb sides hae had full
swing, and neither can complain of
not Inning had an equal show.
A'ong with a huge amount of flimsy
matter the: is have been some intelli
gent ideas anil sound arguments.
To-day we publish a eontiilnitioii
from Mr. dibble, which is a calm,
rational, logical picsontatiun of tho
matter. L'nlcss there io something
new to offer, the discussion had bet
ter now close. Let us turn our at
tention to something else lor a
THE CHINESE QUESTION CALMLY
Eniron Jiui.i.KTiN : The Chinese
question which is bo much disturb
ing the political equanimity ot this
little kingdom appears to be attuin
ing gigantic pioportions elsewhere
and every mail brings fiesh ac
counts of clouds upon the horizon.
The latest and most startling news
is that of the Chinese Imperial edict
of the 15th of July, a mcasuic far
more sweeping than had been ex
pected and one, the effect of which
would be to quash British trade with
China at a blow.
"No Chinese merchandise or
goods of whatever nature are to be
British soil and Chi
aicmveu three years
'in which to return
to their own
It remains to be seen whether this
hysterical outburst of "celestial"
wrath lias much sinew behind it, but
it is evident th.it Britannia, in the
horns of a dilemma between Austra
lia and China, has overestimated the
patience ot the Chinaman.
It is also probable that the Aus
tralians have magnified the extent
of Chinese incui -ion. Air. Ilayter,
Government blutisl of Victoria and
one of the lushest authorities, is
quoted in a letter to the "Times" of
August 21th, as saying that there
are only ol,000 Chinese in all Aus
tralia and far from "pouring in of
late in ever increasing swarms" they
have steadily diminished in number
ever since the 3 ield of gold began
to fall off and at such a Kile that in
HO years there would be no more
Chinese in Aiistialia.
The same wiilcr puts down the
agitation in great measure to the
weakness of colonial politicians who
,, are driven to it by the woiking men
or "men who never do a stroke of
work" but whose votes arc of gieat
importance al election times.
The Chinese lio where no one
else can, work abandoned gold
claims, and do what no one else
cares to do. They carry away
money, but they cannot remove the
soil which they have turned from a
wilderness into a fruitful field.
In Singapore and the Straits Set
tlements Chineso merchants control
the labor market and the greater
part of the trade.
It must certainly be admitted
from such elementary considerations
as these that there are two sides to the
s question, but even supposing the evils
of Chinese immigration to outweigh
tho benefits so much as to lender
prohibitive legislation advisable, it
, will not suit England to lose the
Chinese trade in order to keep the
. peace with the Colonics.
The foreign tonnage entered and
cleared at Chinese ports in 1887,
' reached the enormous amount of
22,000,000 tons; two third bduy
Mritieh. If England has to oinbaik
'in another Chinc-e war in order to
ecp the market open, bill) Vi-UllXOllU-

In legard to the second point of
policy, would it not be as well to
look back as well as forward. 1
am told the Anti-Chinese agitation
is twenty years old. If it had been
success! ill then would it not have
greatly dwarfed the countiy's de
velopment'1' The great need of the islands to
day is a thrifty and entcrpilsing
population to colonize the waste
lands and to supply cheap labour
and cheap produce. Tt is very
doubtful whether any other people
can be found who will fulfil these
conditions to the same extent as the
Tho white man ho has crowded
out the Hawaiian is now in a great
fright lest he in his turn should be
crowded out by the Chinese. lie
has no objection to make a pious
exchange with the native by giving
him the bible in leturu for his coun
try, (all honour to those who give
themselves and the Bible looking for
a better reward,) but he is very
shocked at the immorality of the
Chinaman in trying to compete
with him in the open market.
The celestial, tine to his name
seems to have as his motto 'Friend
go up higher.' He staits in with
the sweat of his brow and copes
succe-sfiilly first with the labourer,
next with tlie artisan, thou with the
storekeeper, lastly with the capit
alist, always coming out light side
Now the question is: What i3 go
ing to keep the Anglo-Saxon race
ahead, will it be repressive legisla
tion, or brains, muscle, sobriety
I have had ample demonstration
at Ilalckauila street that as regards
muscle, sinew and acthity not only
the Hawaiian but also the Portu
guese labourer can beat the Chinese
ten to twenty per cent, so that with
equal diligence he need not fear
I have not had much personal
knowledge of the storckecnin" ot
Honolulu, but 1 should like to know
on what plea our political econom
ists advocate protection of white
stoi cheepers who charge some
times cent per cent for their goods?
The Chinese question is very
much allied to that of Protection.
The agriculturist is peiiodically
howling in England because we do
not keep out American wheat, but
John Bull, much as he loves his
larmers, loves cheap biead moie;
and in the matter of Chinese re
pression it ih gieatly to be hoped
that our statesmen will not "cut off
our nose to spite our face."'
There can be no doubt that there
is ample room for regulative mea
sures ; such as preventing the influx
of unman ied Chinese; of quasi
giocencs which aic in reality opium
dens etc., bin it is to be hoped that
such astuuiidingly drastic measures
as were piopounded during the last
session, not only as regauls fresh
Chinese but those who have been
here for years, will be well weighed
and sifted before they sec the light
of another session, aud that instead
of needlessly euibitteiiiigthe Chinese
here and arousing the indignation
of a great and powerful country by
hasty unjust and spiteful laws, there
may be still preserved to this coun
try the credit of dealing with their
Chinese neighbour not as he may
have dealt in his ignorance and
superstition with foieigncrs, but as
they would like to b? dealt with by
him were they in his place.

press, endeavoring to "boom" thete
I&lautlbasa desirable lesidcuco for
white iininigiaiits,aii3' resident must
ho mentally blind if he cannot see
that Hawaiian tiado is decreasing,
and that most of our enterprising
foreigners have left and others are
leaving for other lands and more
profitable llelds of enterprise.
I think the reason of tho present
depression, at any talc the main
reason, is not far to seel; mid could
be easily remedied j and to give the
causes and remedies ib the object of
Tho causes are: 1st, The public
domain is locked to small capitalists,
and most 'of our valuable public
lands lio waste and un pro Citable.
2nd, Much of the country is inac
cessible owing to a lack of sullleient
ly good loads, or no roads at all, in
places where those highways aro
urgently needed. Slid, l'ubllc works
are comparatively at a standstill,
anil artisans and laborers have con
sequently insullicicucy of woik. -1th,
The common necessaries of lifo aru
too expensive owing to causes 1st,
2nd, and Jlrd, and also because of
the henvy duties and taxation neces
sary to maintain a boat ot Govern
ment employe's, many of whom are
not needed even whole branches
could ho lopped off, such an the
king warriors, etc. fitli, For all
these reasons capital made on the
Islands seeks investment elsewhere,
and business consequently lan
guishes even uur oldest residents
piefer I'liiled MaOu securities for
their accumulations and saungs.
Hawaiian patriots remain so only
just while they can personally bleed
the country, and such patriotism
consists in cheap talk. The Gov
ernment service should be shorn of
its useless hangers-on, and the
money thus saved should be put to
the purposes of material progress
to road construction aril other pub
lic woiks of utility and progressive
Of course, the appropriations
voted do not admit of that eouise
for another year ; but the policy of
material progress should be agitated
now and until next election. Thcic
arc many expensive Government
fal-de rals that could well be done
without, and these should give way
until a more propitious season.
Our beautiful and naturally rich
group of islands have produced a
ci op of politics run mad, and the
and the- principles of political
economy are ignored. The piesent
Provisional Government is to blame
for much of the retrogressive legis
lation of last session ; and each
member, if he be not amenable to
the teachings of his conscience, will
yet have a day of leckoning and be
brought "to book" b' the people.
It feels good to be a "minister of
the crown;" but to sensitive and
honorable gentleman, the feeling of
not being "the right man in tho
right place" must be humiliating.
The reign of the Provisional Gov
ernment should now bo at an end
it initiated a period of depression
which C'intinues; and the slumber
ing embers of another revolution
could be easily fanned into a flame
which may not be so bloodless and
harmless as the last one.
