LILIUOKALANI EDUCATIONAL SO
CIETY. The First Division of tho Liliuo
kalani Educational Society has is
sued a report. The document cov
ers a period of nearly three years,
or the period of the society's exis
tence. The Liliuokalani Educa
tional Society consists of two divis
ions, each independent of the other
- in its-management, hut having the
one object; viz., the education of
poor Hawaiian girls. The first di
vision is formed mostly of Hawaiian
ladies who aro married to foreign
ers. In addition to these are a
number of foreign ladies and gen
tlemen who are associated with the
society as honorary members, and
contribute to its funds without hav
ing a voice in its management. The
First Division has over 70 mem
bers, active and honorary. Each
member contributes twenty-five
cents monthly, or S3 annually. This
is the one source of revenue, and
the First Division has never, excep
ting in one instance, received aid
from anj' other. The exceptional
instance was a contribution of $10.
05 from an entertainment given by
-Mr. W. I. Bishop. The total in
come of tho First Division has not
been so large as might be inferred
from the number of its members.
This fact is due to tardiness in pay
ment of dues. The total revenue
to the end of last month amounted
to S54G.85. Of this amount $190
have-been invested in Ice stock, tho
dividends from which are available
for current requirements. $191.40
have been expended for the object
of the society. This sum has main
tained two girls at tho Kawaiahao
Seminary. Tho report states that
if the members had all regularly
kept up their subscriptions of $J
per annum, four, instead of two
scholars could have been maintained.
We agree with all tho "Adver
tiser" says respecting the capabili
ties of Punchbowl hill as a pleasure
and health resort, etc. We would
also Ijo pleased to havo a road of
easy grade leading to tho summit of
that eminence. Our one point of
objection has been and is, that the
projected Punchbowl hill road is a
luxury which the public finances aro
not in a condition to afford at pres
ent. Necessaries take precedence
of luxuries, and while necessaries
remain uusupplied luxuries should
not bo indulged in. When our
necessities arc satisfied, then wc
may treat purselves to luxuries.
Our ordinary thoroughfares in and
wound Honolulu nro necessaries
that cannot bo dispensed with. They
are tho avenues by which tho peo
ple gain ingress to and egress from
their homes, and without which tho
necessary avocations of life cannot
be prosecuted. Not so with the
proposed road to the top of Punch
bowl. Nobody lives there, and no
body need go there unless thej
choose. To be sure, if a good road
existed many would go for pleasure
and recreation, and probably the
writer would make one of tho many.
But the roads of the city most of
us havo to use daily, whether wo
will or not, and some of llieso are
badly in need of attention. A lady
went by the bus from Fort street
some distance out Herclania street,
last evening, to sec a sick friend,
and was so badly shaken by the
ride, owing to the roughness of that
thoroughfare, that she felt like a
sick woman herself by the time she
had got back home. Now, let Bcre
tania street, and others that could
be named which are no better, be
put in good condition, and then if
there is money left, let us have a
road to the top of Punchbowl.
Necessaries first, and when these
arc satisfied there can bo no objec
tion to indulging in luxuries, pro
vided wc can afford them.
Hereunder wc publish from the
Boston ''Advertiser" of Dec. Gth an
editorial article concerning the an
nexation of these islands to the
United Slates, which will set tongues
to wagging, no doubt, and, it may
bo, cause serious reflection in more
quarters than one. In past years the
desire of all nationalities here has
generally been to retain the inde
pendence of Hawaii as long as it
can reasonably and safely be done.
Whether the still recent revolution
and its exciting and prospective
results will cause a different feeling
to prevail, and require stronger than
domestic hands to retain Hawaiian
autonomy, remains to be seen.
Following is the Boston article :
Our advices from Hawaii show
that elections were duly held in
Honolulu and other places in that
island kingdom for President of the
United States, resulting by a very
close vote in the choice of Harrison.
The elections were duo wc suppose
partly to sheer love of amusement,
but mainly to the fact that Ameri
can residents enjoyed the opportun
ity to make political speeches and
banter each other about the candi
dates to their heart's content, as
well as if they were on their native
soil. We believe the same thing
was done in Honolulu at the last
presidential election, so that it has
no political significance. There are
not wanting indications, however,
that those islands arc looking now
with greater zest than ever before
to forming at no distant day an in
tegral part of tho American Union.
The King himself, now that he is
shorn of all political power and be
gins to feel the utter impossibility
of regaining it, is not unlikely to
desire annexation, which will bring
him certain substantial benefits and
can do him no possible harm. Ho
is said to be fond of distinction, and
this is about the only way to famo
now open for him. The planters
and business men generally, who
formerly were supposed to object to
annexation in the expectation that it
would do away with their system of
penal enforcement of contract labor,
are said to have no further objection
on that score. The large pioportion
of Chinese in that country may at
any time become an element requir
ing a stronger hand than that of
Hawaii, Taking everything into
consideration, wc think that the day
is not far distant when the United
States will find the annexation of
Hawaii a practical question in tangi
REPLY TO "AN AUSTRALIAN."
Editor Bulletin: My commu
nication in tho Bulletin of the 18th
inst. has received critical attention
both in the "Advertiser" and the
Bulletin. Tho comments in tho
former journal were evidently writ
ten by someone who knows nothing
of Australian matters ; but to some
extent, it is otherwise with the
writer in the Bulletin, and I can
only reply to the latter.
"An Australian" begins his letter
in the usual Hawaiian style of call
ing his opponent ignorant ; but the
epithet is so common-place that I
need not throw it back.
In his second paragraph he de
nies that Fiji and New Zealand aro
Australian Colonies, but says they
belong to Australasia. Every school
boy knows that Australia and Aus
tralasia are synonymous terms a
matter of tweedledee and tweedle
dum. If ho raeans that the word
Australian only relates to the larger
island, usually called tho "main
land" of Australia, then Tasmania
is not Australian ; nor any of the
islands that are more or Iosb near
the mainland coast. Fiji is, prop
erly speaking, in Polynesia; but in
grouping tlio British colonies of
these sens it Is usual to speak of
them as tho "Australian colonics;"
and the British naval squadron,
cruising around theso dependencies,
is always spoken of ns the "Austra
lian squadron," not Australasian;
because the shorter word expresses
tho same idea. New Zealand was,
less than fifty years ago, a depend
ency of New South Wales, an Aus
Australian's next paragraph stales
that 1 "seem not to know that West
ern Australia nnd Fiji arc not con
stitutional but crown colonies." If
he will refer to lines G and 7 from
tho top of my letter he will find that
1 expressed this fact very plainly.
Paragraph 4 of your correspon
dent's letter stales that I imply that
the government of Queensland ob
jected to the appointment of Sir
Henry Blake because he had been n
draper's assistant, and not a noble
man. There is no such idea ex
pressed in my letter further than an
opinion thatjsuch a reason was pos
sible on the part of Quecnslandcrs ;
but I distinctly stated that "the text
of the objections had not been pub
lished," and that therefore the truo
reason was unknown.
Paragraph 5 relates to tho vene
ration (not craving) of Australians
for lords as governors. This pro
position Australian says is "abso
lutely false." In matters of opin
ion, such as this, I can only re-affirm
my former statement against
his dogmatical contradiction.
Paragraph G slates that Austra
lians "have long had homo-rule with
all its freedom and responsibilities,
excepting protection from a foreign
foe." It is pretty cool for English
men to be told by an Australian
that the mother country has nothing
to do with Australia farther than to
"fork out" millions of tieasure to
afford them the needed protection.
Tho facts arc, however, that the
mother country has still an Impe
rial control of all matters relating to
Australian legislation, and appoints
a viceroy or governor to each of the
colonics to sec that nothing
is done in opposition to Im
perial interests. Those govern
ors, appointed by the British
government, have full power to nul
lify all acts of tho colonial legisla
tures, or to submit the measures for
Imperial sanction before he attaches
his signature, without which no le
gislative enactment can become law.
Tho reins of power are thus in tho
hands of the British-appointed gov
ernors ; and if this is "home rule
with all its freedom" I fail to see it.
At the same time the colonics with
constitutions have restricted home
rule, and its character was explain
ed in the first paragraph of my let
ter. In the last paragraph of "An
Australian's" letter he denies that
the Australian immigrants "arc
nearly all from the British Isles,"
but lie admits they arc mainly from
thence. I am surprised, consider
ing the tone of his letter, that he
even makes that admission. Ho as
sorts that in South Australia "im
mense tracts are occupied entirely
by Germans, and that Danes and
Norwegians form an important cle
ment of the population." I deny
that there is any truth in these as
sertions, and I make the counter
assertion that in South Australia the
Germans do not exceed fl per cent,
of the population ; while in all tho
Australian colonies combined, the
throe nationalities named do not ex
ceed in number 3 per cent, of the
total inhabitants. In influence or
wealth they arc very far short of 1
The absence of convenient statis
tical information, that is reliable,
gives "An Australian" the advan
tage of making the wildest kind of
assertions regarding his country;
but I hold that a visitor to Austra
lia, who goes for the purpose of see
ing and knowing the conditions of
the country, can arrive at truer con
clusions and form more correct im
pressions of the Australian regions,
than can an Australian native of
similar intelligence. The stranger
has tho power of wider comparison,
while the native can only compare
ono part of Australia with another.
I am sorry that "Australian" does
not have a better knowledge of his
country than he seems to have.
