THURSDAY, JULY 11, 1889.
In this issue appears by request,
copied from the New York Indepen
dent, the article of Gen. Armstrong,
President of the Hampton Institute,
upon "The United States and Ha
waii." The unwisdom of the major
parj; of the letter is proved by the
bad use being made of it here by
a portion of the native press. A
sentence is omitted in reprinting the
article on account of personalities
toward two American Ministers Res-
dent here, which it would be out of
place to discuss in a local paper, and
equalh' so to publish therein. Further
comment on the article is reserved.
Chief Arthur of the Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers declared,
at a recent meeting of the society,
that, under no circumstances of
which he could conceive, should he
ever sanction another strike. As
he was a candidate for re-election
at the time, this was a very bold
statement and it so staggered the
meetingj that, after the Chief con-'
eluded his remarks, it immediately
adjourned. That such an expe
rienced man as Chief Arthur should
absolutely condemn the policy of
striking ought to have great weight
with the woiking classes. lie is
probably right in his courageous de
cision, for the cases must be exceed
ingly rare where the advantages won
by extensive strikes have paid for
the invariable misery and privation
of the conflict, or where the liability
did not remain of having at any mo
ment to renew the contest against
further alleged wrongs.

THE UNITED STATES AND HAWAII.
S. O. Armstrong, in the N. Y.
dependent nf May !!0.)
The recent difllcultics. in Samoa
lend a fresh interest to the situation
in the Hawaiian Islands, where the
complications arc, at the moment,
quito as serious if not actually as
apparent as those which have given
such disastrous renown to the now
but too well-known harbor of Apia.
The conditions in the two groups arc
substantially similar. In each exists
a lmtivc race of some ability and
much attractiveness, lacking how
ever both in physical energy and
moral stamina, to whom have been
presented nearly every temptation
which civilization can offer. In
themselves they find usither check
nor stimulus, and that, Booner or
later, they must in fact if not of
name come under the control in
some one of the dominant nations of
the earth, goes without saying.
A marked feature In the develop
ment of the Hawaiian Islands has
been the ascendency of the mission
ary element, which fiom 1819 to
I860 was represented there by men
of unusual strength, who were forced,
in the nature of things, not only to
convert their docile pupils to Chris
tianity, but to establish and main
tain for them a native government.
As these men asked nothing for
themselves, and nothing but the best
for the people whom they hoped to
train into manhood, the system which
they adopted worked excellently so
long as they were the power behind
the tin one and piactically ruled the
King's councils, as they did the
churches which they built up from
one end to the other of this strange
little kingdom. But when, by the
action of tho American Board, they
were called upon pailially to surien
der the headship of the churches into
native hands, their influence in other
diiections weakened, and as, one b
onc, they passed out of sight, new
foices swept in, to whose mercy they
had perforce to leave their uncom
pleted work. Time has shown us
that the native character is less
strong than they believed it; these
tropical childi en have fallen before
the onset of civilization, sinking un
der its vices before they were able
to 'comprehend its high ambitions ;
and the nation which owes its exist
ence to the energy and devotion of a
handful of American missionaries, is
to-day on the veige of a crisis,
which, if not averted, means possibly
revolution and a period of anarchy.
Less than two years have passed
since the better pait of the loreign
population revolted against the cor
rupt intrigues of which the King
and his prune-minister Gibson were
the head and front, Gibson being a
clever adventurer who had obtained
such ascendency over the King that
no improvement was possible so long
as he retained his position. His dib
missal, and such pledges fiom the
King as should secure honest meth
ods of government for the future
were demanded, literally at the point
of the bayonet, and to this pressure
the King succumbed, deceiving his
subjects for a few months into be
lieving they had obtained a substan
tial victory. But promise after piom
ise has been broken'or evaded, weak
ness, as it often will, has lapsed into
vlciousness, and the King and his
chosen advisers have once more
touched the danger-line.
The results of the next legislative
election arc threatening, uncertain,
and the numerous American resi
dents of the Islands, many of them
descendants of missionaries, are
once in oi (3. facing the possibility of a
great disaster. As a colony they
have kept a close connection with
the mother-couritiy, and have be
lieved alwaj's that, in the event-of a
serious revolution, she would stand
by them. But so terrible a climax
is not inevitable, and, as lucent ad
vices show, there is now n strong
feeling that the power of the United
States Government can, probably,
be so used as to control the course
of events without actual interfer
ence. What is asked for is that there
shall be sent out as United States
Minister to Hawaii a man of force,
experience and uprightness sufficient
to make him virtually master of the
Harrison, if he will study the situa
tion and make a suitable appoint
ment, will cam the gratitude not
only of the Americans in Hawaii, but
of all the better class of foreign resi
dents, who have an equal interest
with their American fellow-citizens
in the picscivation of peace and tho
maintenance of good government. A
man of the right kind, placed there
as lepresentative of the United
States, can probably so far influence
the current of Hawaiian political af
fairs as not only to iimuro safely to
millions of dollars' worth of prop
erty now held by Americaus and
Europeans, but also materially to
affect tho future development of the
As a nation, we have of late had
few better opportunities to test the
moral value of our own greatness
than is offered us by the failure of
this attempt to raise an inherently
weak people to the hight of self
government. It is not demanded
that we should tako any step which
is likely to involve us in an interna
tional dispute, nor is any especial
"policy" required of us. It is sim
ply that in this light for political re
formation, in which a faiily intelli
gent and well-meaning native popu
lation who have been easily deceived
by unscrupulous leaders are arrayed
against men who are Americans, all
of them by blood and many of ,Uiem
by birth, we'shduld show ourselves,
officially, on the side of morality and
Any ono who is familiar with the
conditions which obtain in these out
lying posts of civilization knows tho
value, to any government of able
and trustworthy representatives;
but id the present case it is some
thing more than a general principle
which is at stake. The Christians
of America owo something to the
memories of the men and women
whoso noble lives, havo, in a sense,
consecrated these Islands in the
eyes of all who know their history.
They paid a good price for the
grouud which they won, foot by
foot, from barbarism, and we have
no moral right to let slip that for
which they so bravely tolled.
There are higher issues Involved
than those of Hhe"cbunting-house or
the ballot-box, tho these are suffi
ciently insistent, and the men in
this country who hold the power to
turn the scale In Hawaii me facing
a responsibility which is posBibly
greater than they know.
