The 9th Sederunt of the above
conclave look place on the 20th day
of tho 12th moon in the usual place,
and nt the usual lime.
Thero was a full attendance and
General Duality presided.
On tho meeting being called to
order tho Pi csidont staled that he
had a presentment to make which
he would stato brielly. "It hud
been hinted at our last meeting that
the Calathumpian Party is waning
in numbers nnd prospects, and he
would endeavor to explain the causes
and show thai the extent of the de
cline is not so great as some people
suppose. It is true that the minis
try have not carried out the expect
ed programme ; but It must be re
remembered thai the government
was Bcoicly handicapped in tho
appropilatioiw by both royal and
representative opposition. The inin
istei s endeavored to carry out cer
tain reforms which tho Opposition
stigmatised as "pet schemes," such
as a eoffco plantation on a large
scale and requiring a largo subsidy;
then there was the projected drive
to the rim of the Devils Sugar-bowl
costing only $8,000 which, altho'
the vote passed, was so much
grudged that the Minister of Inter
nal Delights became disgusted and
lost heart in the work. In regard
to immigration, the government docs
not take the popular view, as the
planters and the ministers arc in
accord on the labor question. The
government is opposed to settlement
on the lands, while the people favor
that policy; and Asiatic immigra
tion is a government scheme coupled
with restrictions on white immigra
tion. Another branch of the gov
ernment policy is to keep up the
statu quo, and conserve tho islands
for the entire interests of sugnr
planters. They wish also to restrict
tho franchise to men or women
whose incomes are over $2,000 per
annum, or who have properties
valued at not less than $30,000.
The hold that poor men have no
right to vote, and should be coeiced by
the stings of poverty. Of course, a
policy of this kind cannot be popu
lar ; bat it conserves the interests of
the class to which the ministry be
longs. In this way I have account
ed for the waning numbers of the
Calathumpian Party, and now I shall
explain its prospects. We will sup
pose, at the woi st, that a majority
of the next Legislature is opposed
to the government policy, and that
the government suffers defeat upon
government measures. It by no
means follows that thoy will resign
their portfolios. Not much! They
have no responsibility lo anybody.
They are above the people and
above the king. They are fixtures
in the government offices, and who
is there that can put them out.
They have the army at their back,
and the least sign of revolution
would be extinguished in a moment.
You will therefore see that the pros
pects of the Calathumpian Party
never can wane, and that the minis
try has been put into perpetual
James Stickleback, said that he is
"a labor contractor, and thought
that as the government and the
planters want to have the islands all
to themselves, a scheme of emigra
tion fiom the country should be in
augurated. The government policy
had ruined thousands of people, who
were now too poor to pay their pas
sage fiom these shores, and many
weie living on charity badly
housed and badly fed. For himself,
he would accept a passage from
Calathumpin at the earliest oppor
tunity." Bill Qulwitliit could not sec how
another revolution could be long
avoided, and when it came the peo
ple would doubtless hold the minis
try liable. Tho position seemed to
him anomalous. The government is
in open rebellion against the king,
and they also defy the people. Two
cabbage head.s and two students of
Blackstone dciying a whole nation,
is rather an uncommon piece of
Itev. Wliangbuster laughed and
asked Bill what he was going to do
Bill replied that he "would de
pend upon the dispensations of Pro
vidence, aud he had no doubt tho
guilty would be brought to ac
count." He.ekiah Slriugbeans Esq. stated
that he had "attended a monster
meeting of the Opposition Party,
and the whole sederunt was occu
pied in discussing the question
What shall wc do with tho ministry?
One Portuguese gentleman nid he
would have them 'strung up, and
that hanging was too good for
them.' Another excitable gentle
man of uncertain nationality
'thought it would be difficult to re
strain the people until the next elec
tion, there was so much discontent
and indignation.' The charges
against tho ministry seemed to be
more of a general than of a special
nature, Arqong tho latter were
policy, planter faoiitism, religious
bigotiy, and the upholding of op
pressive a tl obnoxious laws made
at the behest of a religious sect.'
There was also a discussion regard
ing tho part which tho volunteer
army was likely to take part should
the coming struggle assume a tragio
lesult. It was pointed out that a
large propoition of the soldiers were
sons of Opposition fathers; and
were not likely to obey the call to
arms, or to fight against their' fath
ers and brothers. In any case, it
was thought that the 'army' would
bo finally overpowered by the popu
lace; nnd that the leaders would en
danger their lives if their zeal in the
government cause carried them too
Jabcz Corncobb Esq. "believed
tho whole Opposition would evapo
rate. It is a disjointed, disconnect
ed, detached, aud unorganized mass
of nationalities which cannot possi
bly pull together, and can offer no
successful resistance to the govern
ment. They have no journal lo re
cord their doings, ball their meet
ings, or to post them in politics and
give their color to government act
ion." Rev. Dr. Dryhash was of the
opinion that if a serious levolt hap
pened that it would not matter
which way the victory went it would
be denrly bought, and annrchy
would follow. Such a 9tate of af
fairs would be u pretext for the
seizure of the islands by one or
more of the guaranteeing powers.
In this way all the islands of the
group might be parcelled, out
amongst tho British, French" and
Amcricau nations. In view of the
Australian cable, he felt sure that
tho British would finally govern at
least a portion of the group, and tho
Americans another. It seemed lo
hi m nalurnl that before a British ca
ble could be laid on this group that
there must be a treaty to guarantee
its protection, and it is rumored that
already a harbor on the most
remote point ef tha largest
island of the group has been fixed
upon for placing the cable and to
serve as a landing for a Biilish line
of steamers between Canada and
Australia. A very small portion of
territory will seive the put poses of
British ambition on this group : but,
as sure as God made little apples,
they will have what they require;
and theie may be no trouble about
it cither, as America will, doubtless,
seize the balance."
Dr. Cureall, a medical gentleman
from Boston, naid that "the previous
speaker had digressed considerably
into the improbable regions of futur
ity ; but the speaker had no doubt
whatever that when the Whereabout
Islands could no longer maintain
their independence that Uncle Sam
would claim them and lake posses
sion. His puwei is omnipotent, as
witness how the Germans cowed at
Samoa; and it would be the same
with John Bull."
The captain of the horse marines
thought differently, and "defied
b anyone present to show a hinstance
where John Bull 'ad cowed on salt
water. The British fleets bar hall
poweiful at sea, and ee thought
America would do a very foolish
thing were she to put liexpcnse
hupon a distant group of Inlands
that could so heasily be taken from
'er, together with their himprovc
ments and chattels."
Editor Straugcways entered into a
tirade of abuse against both Britisli
and Germans, and said that "these
two miserable nations were playing
hand and glove in the annexation
game; but Undo Sam would swoop
down upon them borne day and des
troy their stolen possessions, their
fleets, and all they had to brag
about. Uncle Sam djd not covet
their ox nor their ass, hut ho would
teach them to behave themselves in
The horse marine Cap said that
"the heditor did not know what ee
was talking about;" and recom
mended that gentleman to tiavel a
little more, and he would get his
national conceit considerably reduc
ed, lie "thought also that ssmo
hcxpeiienee in a French dancing
school might teach 'em 'ow to be
have himself ikc a gentleman, which
part of 'is hcdiu-atiou 'ad been neg
lected." The President said that he "really
must put a stop to those 'bickerings'
within the conclave. It was bad
enough to have u hostile Opposition
outside, without internal broils and
altercations. We had nothing to do
with anj' othor nation or govern
ment than our own, and he would
earnestly enjoin members to confine
their remarks to the political state
of the Whereabout Islands."
Itev. A. Wliangbuster, who is now
the most influential member of the
conclave, stated that he "thought it
a great pity that the two great
Anglo-Saxon nations were so ready
to tako offence at each other. He
hoped they would never lly at each
other's throats; beciuse, woie that
to happen, theie would be much
blood spilt nud the result could not
he favorable to either. There are as
many opinions i egai ding the prob
abilities of future possession of these
islands, as theie aro cocoamit tiecs
on these shores, The wholo matter
rested with Providence whose plans
would be carried out by the nation
most fitted for the woik,"
This speech has a soothinc effect
upon the iiritnblc munhcrs who had
just spoken, aud the dooi keeper an
nounced a stranger.
"Biing hhu in," said the I'rcsi
dent' Tho stranger, hat in hand, then
approached the chair and slated that
his name was llerr Schiester, who
wished to "pay his respectH to tho
governing paity. ("Herr Devil,"
muttered Strangeways). IIo had
come to these island 'from Berlin
on a flcionuiio mission, ue is a,

His Intention was to collect botan
ical and mineral specimens for the
Imperial museum at Berlin, nw

liim to oqll upoi the Calathumpin
Government wheu lie landed."
"I object," said Editor Strange
ways, "we- hayo no Minora,! speci
men excopt ltivn nnd coral, and wo
have no wild plants that are worth a
a brass farthing. This man is evi
dently a spy, and should be sent
nbioad on the first foreign bound
Rev. A. Wliangbuster was glad lo
meet so illustrious a stranger, and
stated that the field in theso islands
is large, the flora of a varied and ex
tensive character; but the minerals
were mostly confined to lava and
scoria rock. The native fauna is
limited to insects, lizards and centi
pedes; but this latter branch of
natural history I presume you do
not propose to touch. As this meet
ing is about to close, I shall be glad
to receive n visit from you at my
residence." ("Give him plenty of
beetles, bugs, cockroaches, and
centipedes," muttered Strangcways,
"I hope the latter may bite him.")
Itev. Mr. "Wliangbuster now sang
the closing odo as follows:
Welcome I welcome! illustrious Gran
