Honolulu, Dec. 14, 1S88.
Pledged to neither Sect nor Party,
But established for the benefit of all.
SATURDAY, DEC. 22, 1S88.
The question of harbor accommo
dation for large vessels appears to
be receiving but very scant, if any,
attention from those whoso depart
ment it is to attend to such matters ;
the impressior, apparently, in the
minds of the gentlemen who arc res
ponsible for such work, being some
what as follows: "That since no
serious inconvenience has, so far,
been experienced, what is the use of
bothering our heads about it? time
enough to make a harbor when the
big ships come. We need all our
money to make roads up to the top
of Punchbowl hill, and other simi
lar important public works, etc."
Such happy-go-lucky reasoning as
this might have been satisfactory
enough in the past, when not one in
five hundreds ships that visited, our
shoreflj-found any difficulty so far
as depth of water was concerned.
They were mostly small ships and
could at all times get in and out of
The time however has now arrived
when we should look as far as wc
can ahead, and reflect a little upon
the question of what Honolulu's
future is likely to bo if the present
system of inaction is maintained.
The ships of the future the com
paratively, near future are large
ships. The opening of tho Panama
Canal in the course, probably, of
another year or two, will create a
vast change in, shipping aifairs,and,
from our exceptionally central posi
tion, midway between the canal and
the China Coast, and directly on the
line between Vancouver and Austra
lasia, this matter concerns us very
'Negotiations arc already pending
between tho Canadian Pacific Co.
and the Australian Colonies for the
establishment of a line of laigc
steamers touching, en route, at llo
nojulu. and Fiji. These steamers
will find good harbors at all stopping
phiccrbutone, and that one is Honp
lulu j for the reason that ships of
large tonnage cannot cross the bar
at.the entranco to the harbor, and,
except at certain stages of the tide,
could not lay alongside our docks.
' To'bo compelled, as large-ships
now are, to anphor 3 miles off in
tho offing, liind and ship cargo and

rather than submit to the ineouvcii

on to thoir destinations without call

To our harbor, such as it is, tho
very existenco of tho city of Hono
lulu is due. It was tho only safe
harbor in tho group, and tho small
ships of that day, canio horc in
If we wish to keep our place with
modem advancement, steps should
be taken without delay, to make our
harbor available for the largest ships
that are likely to visit us, or, at any
rate, for such steamers as will, at
no distant date, ply between Austra
lasia and British Columbia.
There is little doubt that the fact
of our want of harbor accommoda
tion has prevented many ships from
calling here, greatly to our loss comr
REPLY TO A. B.
Editor Bulixlik: A correspon
dent signing himself A. B., in your
issue of the 18th instant, manifests
considerable ignorance relative to
the matter upon which ho writes.
In the first paragraph ho includes
Fiji in the Australian colonics. I
suppose ho would speak of New
Zealand as Australian also. Fiji
and New Zealand belong to Austra
lasia, but not to Australia.
In speaking of constitutions being
granted by the mother country to
the Australian colonics, he seems
not to know that Western Australia
and Fiji are not constitutional but
A. B., plainly implies that the
government of the colony of Queens
land recently objected to the ap
pointment of Sir Henry Blake lo the
governorship of that colony, simply
because in his younger days ho had
been a draper's assistant, and was
not a nobleman horn. Says A. B.
"It would never do, they thought,
that a draper's assistant should gov
ern so important a commonwealth
as Queensland, hence the protest of
their Premier." Xothing of the
sort. They objected to Sir Henry
Blake, but not on the ground of his
having been a draper's assistant.
A. B., does not seem to know
that the protesting Premier, Sir
Thomas Mcllwraith, himself, was
knighted from the "ranks," and was
in no way superior to a draper's
assistant in early life.
The insinuation that the Austra
lian colonists have a craving for
governors that arc "lords of some
kind who must be to the manner
born," is absolutely false. A. B.
needs to be informed of the fact
that but few of the Australian gov
ernors have been lords. They have
been mostly men born in the lower
walks of life, who have risen by
merit. Queensland, I believe, has
never had a "lord" governor. One
of her most popular governors, Sir
George Bowcn, had in early life
been a poor schoolmaster. The
Queenslandcrs did not consider this
fact derrogalory to their governor.
Among former Australian governors
may be named Grey, Robe, Ilind
marsh, Ilonson, Gawler, Philson,
and many others who rose from
humble stations in life.
A. B., speaks of the Austialian
colonics as having in prospect
"Home rule, with all its freedom
and responsibilities." Another
gross error. They have, and have
long had, home rule with all its
freedom, and all its responsibilities,
too, except wherein the mother
country undertakes to assist in pro
tecting them from a foreign foe.
That the immigration is "nearly
all from the British Tsles," is an
other en or. Mainly, yes; "nearly
all." no. Immense tracts of the
hest parts of South Australia, the
largest of all the colonies, are oc
cupied entirely by Germans. Danes
and Norwegians also form an impor
tant clement of the population.
HEWS BY THE KINAU.
Purser Geo. lkckley reports fine
weather during the last trip. The
Kinau'R cargo of general merchan
dise was one of the largest she ever
carried, and everything was landed
in good order. The Queen had left
Mahukona for San Francisco with
450 tons of sugar, alessrs. P. and,
1. Y. Dcvan, two English touiists
returned by the Kinau after having
visited the Volcauo by way of llilo.
They found tho crater very active
and wore much pleased with tho
trip. The steamer brought the first
Hiigar of this season's crop from the
Papaikou Sugar Co.
The Kinan leaves again for Maui
