IN FAVOR OF EXHIBITING.
At a meeting of citizens held in
the otllce of the Minister ef Foreign
Affairs, this day, at the Minister's
invitation, to consider the matter
of Hawaii being represented at the
Paris exhibition, this year, the sen
timent was unanimous and enthu
siastic in favor of this country being
represented and of everything pos
sible being done to ensure a ciedit
able showing. This augurs wcl'.
Our country is capable of making
an exhibition of whbli she need not
be ashamed, and the spirit mani
fested by her citizens at to-day's
meeting gives encouraging promise
that it will be done. As we said a
few days ago, the government is not
in a position to do much, but it is
ready and willing to do all in its
power, and now we have proof that
influential private citizens are in the
same frame of mind. This being
the case, we have no misgivings as
to the result, and feel sine that
Hawaii will appear at Paris in cre
LETTER FROM MR. W. A. KINNEY.
One would be amused, if it was
not cause for alann, at the over
weening confidence show n by the
anti-missionary part', or opposition
in its power to cany the elections.
To judge from the newpapcr cor
respondence of the doughty anti
missionaiy warriois in the Rulixiis,
they have long since ceased to con
sider such trifles as carrying the
elections, and have already addiess
ed themselves to the absorbing task
of guarding the spoils of war, evi
denciug in their articles quite as
much fear that too many may llock
to their standards, as too few. Per
haps after all, the division of spoils
is the most perplexing, if not most
important point in an election, un
less indeed, the miracle of the live
loaves and two fishes can be made
to materialize again. I hope, how
ever, this confidence of success is
well founded, but where it comes
from I do not know, considering
that 34 out of -18 members of the
Legislature are elected by the coun
try districts, where the influences
are entirely different from the city,
and out of the Id members elected
in the city some arc absolutely con
trolled by native constituanccs. The
Chinese will certainly be in the field
next election, and if our Queen
street friends insist on sustaining
the Lcgislatuie in the position it has
taken on the Chinese question, will
result in an unconscious partnership
of all the virtues and the vices, so
to speak, that would seem well nigh
Certainly the opposition does not
occupy such a commanding position
that it can afford to alienate any
votes, be they from saints or
sinners, rich or poor, whites or na
tives. It can seek all these votes
and still see to it that the men it
puts up for the Legislature are men
of its own individual choice whose
own interests are menaced by the
Chinese and are anti-missionary, if
that is what is wanted. They will do
the missionaries no harm. There
are two of the Ministers, certainly,
Thurston and Ashford who aic
friendly to the essential cause of the
opposition, and whose friendship
will be very useful, for one has of
ficial control over the election boauls
and its entire machinery, and the
other command of the police power
of the Kingdom two all-powerful
agents in securing a free and un
tramelcd vote from everj laborer in
the Kingdom the sheet anchor of
the coming election. It may be the
pait of wisdom to keep slapping
these men in the face, knowing that
notwithstanding all abuse they can
be relied upon to pick election of
ficers who are entirely free from un
due plantation influence, but it is
hard to sec it all the same.
Mr. Hartwell may not agree with
many of the views thus far express
ed in this letter, but there is prob
ably more hope of it, than that we
could ever agree on the Chinese
question. I have read his letter
over with great care and while
thanking him for his kindly compli
ments cannot sec but that we have
misunderstood each other complete
ly. He says, "Man is not required
by the necessities of life to regard
his fellow man as one savage re
gards another, to bo made way with
if ho interferes with one's comfort"
(a position no one has disputed)
and elsewhere in his letter Mr.
Hartwell seems to indicate that the
presence of the Chinese simply ic
sults in an interference with "one's
' comfort." Now, if all that Mr.
Hartwell has said in his letter, and
if his views on the Chinese question
arc based on the assumption that
the Chinese will only inteifero with
ono's comfort, then a person can
well understand why he is opposed
to the legislation' in question, and if
in fact that's all wo need fear from
the Chinese, then it seems to me the
Chinese question is at an end once
and for all. Hut suppose instead of
being a caso of interference with
"one's comfort" it is a case of in-
tcrfcrcncc with "one's necessities,"
instead of being a case of self grati
fication baulked it is a case of pre
servation menaced, then do 1 under
stand you, Mr. Hartwell, Hint you
will still say to your own Jlosli and
blood nothing can bo done to avc
you, or docs this present to you al
together a new case that you will
answer for differently v For that is
our case, one of our Bolt-preservation,
as the newspaper articles have
clearly set forth, and you must
either disprove tliat case ami no
other, or beg the question. If you
deny that such is the case, then it is
useless to spend time talking about
what the remedy should be until we
know what the evil is. If you ad
mit that the evil does laise the ques
tion of self preservation as claimed
by this side, then to adequately
describe your position on the ques
tion of lclicf, lcquires, it seems to
me, resort to some of the foicible
language you have used in your own
letter. You say of my position,
however magnificent this attack ou
Queen street, and the wealth pro
ducing interest of the country,which,
by the way, I deny, it is not, as it
seems to me, cither statesmanship
or common sense, to use your own
language. Now, It seems to mc
that to offer in the way of comfort
and lelief to men confronted by this
issue of self picservation what you
suggest, is neither statesmanship
nor is it common sense. There prob
ably will come a lime, let us hope,
when the Chinese can with safety bo
given equal rights in the same fold
with their Western brethren, not
only in the acquisition of piopcrty
but also of political rights, jut3 as a
time will probably come when the
lion and the lamb shall lie down to
gether and a little child shall lead
them. But until that time comes,
common sense suggests in one case
that the child be kept at home and
the animals in separate paddocks,
and in the other that we give the
Chinese every right that we can with
safety to ourselves, but no more ;
or in cither case the result will be
about the same unless indeed the
whites quit theoiizing and bring
the matter to a stop whether or no.
The reason that 1 compare the
whites to the lamb is not that they
naturally lepiesent the lamb cither
in spirit or strength, but because
they are so hobbled and strapped
down by laws and conditions made
for them by others, that the odds
are heavy against them.
"While Mr. llaitwell seems to have
a very inadequate and vague con
ception of the evils menacing the
whites, no such charge can be
brought against his conceptions of
the evils that would result from the
proposed legislation. He heaps on
the agony theie until even the
"Gazette" would temper Ins zeal
and in a very discriminating editor
ial, steps in and after quoting Mr
Haitwcll's charge that wo weie
making "outlaws" of the Chinese,
says "we do not understand that it
is proposed to make outlaws of any
one. The gentleman's language
seems to us to involve one of those
overstatements which are very much
to be deprecated in discussions of this
kind." After Mr. Hartwell had got
through this pen and ink sketch of
Chinese misery', I could not help
thinking of the hundiods of thou
sands of poor wretches toiling in
the lice swamps of China and India
who would like to have a chance at
some of it. To exchange a bare
existence varied by an occasional
drouth and famine for plenty of good
food such as even many of the labor
ing classes m Lnglaiul and Luropc
would fain have, with the additional
certainty by 8 or 10 ycais' labor of
saving from his plantation wages
sufficient to enable him to return to
his native village, which be probably
left with no more than the clothes
on his back, to live in case for life,
or as the story book would have it
to marry the belle of the village or
the swcetheait of his boyhood days,
and live happily ever afterwanls.
To exchange the oppression of des
potic government and arbitrary.
Justice for kind treatment, trial by
jury, the habeas corpus and personal
liberty, peace and security which no
one proposes shall be taken from
him. Such outlawry it seems to mc
would be at a premium.
And as to the Chinese now at tho
Inlands if after tho proposition is
honestly made to them, by which
their established business houses arc
left alone and every one among
them having a regular plant and
business is allowed to continue in it,
and the rice and sugar industiies in
all their blanches are open to them,
and labor under conditions and at
prices which arc infinitely superior
to anything they can get at home is
fieely offered them, they are not
content but aie going to have the
whole loaf or else as Mr. llartwcll's
letter suggests, will raise a row, I
think the white men so far from
backing out, will accept that issue
jiiht as soon as the Chinese see fit to
make it, or if they don't they de
serve to be cleaned out.
Mr. Hartwell sustains tho exclu
sion of the Chineso from political
rights, while opposing their exclu
sion fiom certain pioperty rights by
claiming that the right to vote has
never been treated as a natural ono.
This has, it seems to me, been well
answered by "J. E." in the Uui.u:-
Free institutions will not 1 believe
furnish precedents for exclud
ing a man from voting upon proof
of tho single fact that ho is yellow
regardless of what soit of a man ho
may bo than they do for tho legisla
tion now proposed.
1 very much doubt whether Mr.
llaitwell can find a single precedent
for any such course except by ic
soiting to the excrescences of Afri
can slavery in the United Slates.
15y thus excluding the Chinese vote
wc certainly substantially disregard
that fundamental principle "no tax
a tion without lepicscntalion" and
yet Mr. Hartwell sustains our con
stitution on that point or if he does
not everyone else does. It would
have been nothing short of insanity
to have given the vote of the Chi
nese. The fact is the most sacred
precedents of free institutions have
ninny lccognized exceptions, which
have been the outgrowth of new
conditions and exigencies as the
Sabbath was made for man and not
man for the Sabbath, so men were
not made for the institutions, but
the institutions for men and nothing
is more inlcicsliiig than to sec how
past generations have from time to
lime moulded and modified these
institutions and traditions without
destioying Hie genius of them. Pre
cedence may bo dangerous as well
as safe things especially as they
give men (I am making no per
sonal allusion) opportunity by
nlavins on popular reverence for
these precedents to apply them for
their own ends where they aie only
mischievous and self destructive.
The docrinc that the law should
treat all alike honestly invoked by
Mr. Hartwell, is likely it scorns to
me to bo misapplied unless wc con
sider how and when that doctrine
had been successfully applied here
tofore. Equal rights can only exist
in homogcnimib communities whose
rank and file are sufficiently ad
vanced not only to appreciate but to
preserve those rights. In fact the
history of fieo States has thus far
been a history of failures has it not?
They hae attempted to absorb more
ignorance than they could stand.
They have been murdeied by foes
within not foes without, lo at
tempt to give equal rights to those
not prepared for them is of no
earthly use. They'll simply swamp
you and themselves too. Every
community affecting free institutions
which incorporates into the body
politic a degraded population, has
had to put barriers not only between
that degraded population and the
free institutions but between them
and the men upon whom it must rely
to preserve those institutions. Put
80U0 coolies who have been used to
living on a few cents a dav in the
same town with two or three thou
sand whites many with families
whoso civilization i (.quires from 82
to So a day to support them, then
give to the coolio all tho industry
foieign and natural ability as a
trader and artizan that our pio Chi
nese friend in his eulogies of the
Chinese says he has and which we
don't deny, and what will be the
Why go and ee how water seeks
its level and find your answer.
It does not need another China
man from Asia to do the business.
Those now at the Islands can elim
inate the white wage earners as a
class and reduce them to a disinti
gratod following of other forces, if
only you give them time and the
whites take enough of the laughing
gas of equal rights to dish act them
Mr. Hartwell in his letter says
that it would be futile lo seek lelief
against Chinese cheap labor for you
would still have to compete with
Portuguese, Native and Japanese
cheap labor. The Latin races have
for centuries lived alongside of
other white races and fieely mixed
with them, and history certainly
docs not indicate any material dif
ference between the two in civiliza
tion, scale of wages, manner of liv-
ing, or views on questions like this.
Certainly the Portuguese, Native
and White artizans seem to be stand
ing shoulder to bhouldcr at the Isl
ands on this and other questions and
with little or no mutual jealous',
and they undoubtedly know each
other best. They probably know
enough to fear other classes of their
own race more than each other. As
far as the Japanese are concerned I
believe that while their caso will
never be parallel with the Chinese
question, it may be one of its owir
before long unless it is attended to
by the "wise anil thoughtful" men.
lr. Hartwell invokes to prevent
anti-Chinese legislation anil who will
doubtless wake in time lo announce
sententiously that the Japanese knot
is tied ns tight as the Chinese ono
anil that it is the part ot wisdom to
let it alone. However it behooves
the whites to strike out lor the shoic
even if they do not reach it.
Wishing tho 1$uu.i:ti" a Happy
New Year (it is New Year's ihiy),
anil with the utmost respect for Mr.
Hartwell, I remain Yours truly,
