Honolulu, Oct. 4, 18S9. 3C9 2t
PUtltfcil to neither Sect nor Party,
But established for the benefit of all.
Fill DAY, OCT. -1, ISSjt.
Volumes of correspondence liavc
pouted iu upon us lliit morning,
but, with a iianti(y of matter in
type, thesi' favors are crowded out
by the Cabinet's statement on the
THE PACIFIC CABLE QUESTION.
The New York correspondent of
the San Francisco Chronicle lately
gave a special despatch of neaily a
column to that paper on the subject
of a Pacific cable. Of the opinions
of bcveral telegraph magnates, while
some doubted the profitableness of
such an undertaking lo the invest
ors, all were agreed upon the gicat
henellt it would be to the I'nited
States. Mr. lleiton de Castio. vice
president of the Commercial Cable
Company, said nothing would please
thnt company better than to sec the
line laid. He thought Mr. Mi.ekay
would do anything in his power to
help the people of the Pacific Coast
in this matter. It would require
SI. ", 000,000 and, as it would not
pay at first, the Government ought
to devote some of its great surplus
to guaranteeing interest on the
bonds for a brief term. "The Gov
ernment could well afford to do
that," Mr. de Castro said, "because
of the great advantage to itself in
matters connected with the navy in
the Pacific, and for the proper pro
tection of American interests and
the merchant maiinc otherwise."
He concluded: "If we are ever to
have western commerce we must
have that cable. lfwcareeer in
trouble us a nation in the Pacific we
surely do not want all the cab'es in
the hands of other governments.
"When the plan is well presented I
believe men of capital will sec its
possibilities and then success will be
assured." These views coming
from an associate of Messrs.
IWackay and Bennett in the Com
mercial Cable Company arc promis
ing of American enterprise taking
hold and giving us cable communi
cation. AUCTION SALES TO-MORROW.

AN EXCURSION BY RAIL.
Yesteidny evening about six
o'clock a party of thiily or forty la
diet and gentlemen, accompanied
by .Mr. It. l' Dillingham, boarded
an excursion train at the city ler
minus of the Oahu Hallway. They
were equipped with picnic baskets
and the train steamed down to the
farthest point of the completed road
near Moanalua. Tlicnco the party
walked on us far as the Hon. b. M.
JJuuioti'rs grass cottage, where tables
and chairs were produced and the
baskets unpacked. A very plea
sant evening was spent and at nine
o'clock the party staited home in
the train, reaching town about half
an hour later, all thoroughly de
lighted with the excursion. The
cars were considered especially com
fortable, the upholstery of plaited
bamboo being better adapted to the
climate than warru plush. Those
qualified lo judge arc of the opinion
that the road is specially well con
Htructed, having heavy sleepers
close together and being well bal
lasted. F YOU WANT A SITUATION

MessKs. A. Rosa, J. L. Kaulckoi',
J. F. Conirnx and oriiEits:
Gentlemen: As a Committee re
presenting a public meeting of Ha
waiian citizens you have asked from
His Majesty's Ministers certain in
formation concerning their action in
regard to the relations between this
country and the United Slates of
Feeling that it is the right of the
people to know the policy of the
Administration, the Ministers take
pleasure iu informing you that they
have for a long time had under con
sideration the practicability of ex
tending our treaty i elation? with
the United Stales so as to enhance
and iucreaso both the commercial
and political bcnelils which the two
countries now enjoy by reason of
As llie result of neaily a year'i
consideration of this suhject by the
Cabinet, our Minister Resident at
Washington lias been instructed to
ascertain whether the Government
of the I'nited States is willing lo
enteitain piopositions looking to the
end above indicated, and, should he
find such willingness to exist, he is
instructed to open negotiations with
that Government for the conclusion
of a Treaty which will effect the
put poses hereunder indicated.
This statement, of the present sta
tus of the'subjeet renders .t unneccs
aiy to say that no proposition has
been made or accepted by the Unit
ed States and that no Treaty has
been submitted to Ilis Majesty for
The reasons which have moved
the Cabinet to adopt the course
above indicated are nuuicious, and
while an exhaustive enumeration
and discussion of such reasons
would exceed the 'cope of the pro
tent rcpty, a summary of the more
-alient among them is as follows:
Fiust: The history of our staple
products during the past thirteen
years has demonstrated how essen
tial to our commercial ' prosperity
aie llie advantages secured to us by
the existing Ti eatj.
The development of our export
trade from 82,241,011 in 1870 to
51 1,707, ."JOS in 1888, during the
life of that Treaty, with its attend
ant advantages to all our citizens
and residents, arc witnesses of its
stimulating effect upon our indus
tries and commerce and il heneli
cent influence upon our national
welfare, and are fresh illustrations
of the principle that no great nia
lerial advantage can be enjoyed by
any class dependent upon labor
without the entire community pai
taking of Such benefits.
Ily the terms of the existing Reci
procity Treaty with the United
Stales, notice of termination within
one year thereafter may be gh en in
Ihc years from now.
. The interval between 18S:t and
1887, during which lime the Treaty
wa subject to termination upon a
year's notice, illustrated the evil
effects to our commercial well-being,
of a dependence from year to
year, for the continuance of our
treaty relations, upon the uncertain
humor of llie American Congress.
The uncertainty involved has an
unsettling effect upon capital, and
is detrimental to the making of
large permanent investments, many
of which now contemplated requir
ing heavy preliminary expenses.
With only the certainty of a live
years' continuance of the Treaty;
the experience of the recent pastiu
mind, and the strong probability
that lenewed and strenuous efforts
will lie made by our opponents in
ttie United States, to terminate the
Treaty at the end of the five years,
it is the part of wisdom to prepaio
in llie day of prosperity for the
days that are to follow.
Si:coxn: At the last session ol
llie United States Congress there
was developed a strong movement
looking to the reduction of sugar
duties and llie.payinent of bounties
upon sugar of American production.
The effect of this would be to dis
criminate against Hawaiian sugars
in favor of American, and maleiial
ly reduce to us the value of the ex
isting Treaty without any corres
We believe it to he the duty of
the Hawaiian Government to en
deavor to secure the placing of our
products upon tiie same basis as
American products in respect of
bounties and privileges,
Tiiiiip: The existing Treaty is
limited in its extent, A large num
ber of American products still pay
duties in the Islands, while the pro
ducts admitted by the Ticaty fiee
of duty into the ports of tho i'nited
States are practically limited to
sugar, rice, bananas, hides and tal
low. There arc many articles which
might be profitably produced here,
upon lauds which are not available
for pioducts now admitted under
the Treaty, were there a market for
If a mutual agreement can be
arrivd at whereby tho products of
either country can he admitted freo
into tho other, a great stimulus will

We believe that the additional
value which eaoh country would re
ceive would many time over com
pensate them for tho loss of tho
duties now levied.
Forum : Tho Hawaiian Islands
are now the only group in the Paci
fic which is wholly self-governing.
Our situation is peculiar. We have
no military or naval strength of our
own to maintain our autonomy
against the pettiest naval power;
and we have to-day no guarontce of
our continued independence, as
against any foreign nation, other
than the sufferance or the mutual
jealousies of the great powers.
Within the last few years the
policy of annexation has prevailed
among tho European nations inter
ested iu Polynesia, which has- re
sulted m the rapid absoiption of
nearly nil of Pacific Islands.
Within the year last past we have
seen rtamoa lose ner position 09 a
sclf-goveining state. The acts of
her government arc now subject to
the approval of the Governments of
the I'nited States, England and
Germany, and had it not been for
the good olliccs of tlie-Unitcd States
Government the probability is that
she would hao ere now been annex
ed by one or more European na
tions. Within the past year the question
of the disposition and absoiption of
the Hawaiian Islands, as well as of
Samoa, has been the subject of
seiious cousidciation by certain of
the nations inteiested in the Pad
fie. The Cabinet are of the opinion
that the interests of this country,
and of every race and industry re
sident or located therein, will be
best served by the continuance of
its present independent state, free
from any protectorate or control on
the pnrt of any loicign government.
It is, and ever will be, the endea
vor of tho present Administration,
to not only unqualifiedly maintain
this status, but to obtain such as
suianccs and ouaiantees thereof as
will remove the question from the
debatable politics of the world.
It has long been the custom of
European nations to form alliances
with neighboring countries) for pur
poses of defense, safety and com
mercial exchange. The time has, in
the opinion of the Cabinet, arrived
when we should follow a precedent
so well established and form an
alliance with some great nation. If
an alliance of this character is de
sirable it should be in the direction
where our greatest interest lies.
The proximity of the United
States, the coidial friendship which
has been from the commencement of
our civilization a marked character
istic of our relations with Ihc Ame
rican people, and the extensive com
mercial exchanges which arc the
result of such relations, point inevi
tably to that great country as our
best fiiend, our most valuable com
mercial colleiiguu and our natural
Animated as wc arc by the desire
to strengthen and extend the com
mercial ties which hae done so
much for our national prosperity,
and to secure the safely and peipe
tuation of our institutions by an
alliance whereby wc shall liuve the
positive and efficacious guarantee of
a stiong friend against interference
by itself or otheis with our perfect
autonomy, independence and sover
eignly, we h.ve insti ucted our re
presentativc at Washington to ascer
tain if tlie United Stales would be
willing to negotiate with ns a Con
vention wheieby the following ob
jects may be secured :
1st. To continue in force all
Ti cities and Conventions now exist
ting between the two nations, until
they shall find it mutually advanta
geous lo ablegate or modify such
Tiealies or Conventions, or any of
2d. That all products of cither
country which are by virtue of the
Reciprocity Treaty admitted freo of
duty into Ihc other country shall be
treated in respect of bounties paid,
exemptions or immunities and in all
othoi respects ns if such articles
were of the giowth, pioduco or ma
nufacture of the country Into which
they are so admitted.
ilrd. To provide for tho entry into
oither of the two countries, without
payment of duty, of all products of
the olher.lexcepting.howevor, opium,
spirituous liquors of more than 18
per cent, alcoholic slrcngjh, and all
articles prohibited by law In cither

guarantee by the United Slates Gov

To enable the United States Gov
ernment to do this without danger
of complication with other powers,
we do agiee not to negotiate Treat
ies with oilier nations without the
knowledge of the United States
Tho Cabinet for mora than a year
has studied carefully many reasons
for and against the points 'submitted
for negotiation, and lias taken coun

unconnected with the Government,
and has considered various propo-

The Ministers are strongly and
unanimously of the opinion that the

indicated will tend to greatly in
crcajc tho material prosperity of the
