As ' anticipated, passengers are
disagreeably exposed to rain and
mad, at this season, in changing
from one car to another at the I'a
lama switch. The company ought
to have the cars come alongside each
other, which would save some of the
ducking infliction ; or, at least, run
a platform along the 'ditch side,
which would avoid the necessity of
people floundering several rods in
A subscription list is in circula
tion for a prize fund to secure row
ing races among crews from the live
warships in port on the King's
birthday. It ought not to be hard
to raise an adequate sum for this
purpose, when the fact is made
known that the naval sailors gen
erally are eager to engage in such a
celebration of the holiday. With
some races for shore boats added,
together with the projected yacht
race, quite a respectable regatta
jnight be obtained.
A CONTEMPTIBLE PRACTICE.
In an interview with Col. G. W.
IMacfarlane, that gentleman said in
yjlation to floating the Makaweli
pigar scheme in London: "The
only opposition I had to contend
with was unfavorable and prejudiced
reports sent on from the Islands by
parties unknown to me." This is a
contemptible practice which some
contemptible parties in this country
are given to. Scarcely an attempt
has been made, in a public way, to
raise money abroad for an' under
taking on these islands but these
paities have secretly striven to get
in their secret work in opposition.
We enn conceive of no motive which
an honorable man would permit to
regulate his actions prompting op
position to the Makaweli venture, a
venture which cannot fail to profit
the investors and benefit the coun
try. A mean jealousy of English
capital, a selfish aversion to the
prosperity of others, or a hope of
ultimately securing the prize for
themselves, probably actuated the
"unfavorable and prejudiced le
ports" sent from here by parties
unknown. The same parties, or
others equally detestable, have
sometimes endeavored to under
mine the credit of business rivals in
ft similar way. Such meddlers in
other people's affairs arc the most
A NEW PROJECT.
Our readers have been made
aware of the fact that one object of
the visit of Mons. T. Cognet, Ha
waiian Consul at Tahiti, to this
country, is to endeavor to establish
regular steam communication be
tween San Francisco, Honolulu, aud
Tahiti. This scheme has been un
der consideration for a year past,
both by parties at Tahiti and at
Honolulu. It is thought that, with
a little Government aid, the under
taking mfght prove reasonably pro
fitable. For a regular monthly ser
vico two comparatively Biuall steam
ers would bo required. Thcro is
good reason for believing that the
French Government at Tahiti would
be ready to grant a small subsidy.
That government is now, and has
been for a long time past, subsidis
ing sailing vessels lo carry its mails
Utftbfeh Still t'fdnblaco tint! 'Mill.
The projected steam service, nmk
ing Honolulu slopping pint each
way, is one which the Hawaiian
Government might hu reasonably
asked to assist according to its
means; for such a scivicc would
.probably he of considerable benefit
to Honolulu. To say nothing at
present of other branches of trade
that might be hesellteil thereby, a
market for our surplus cattle would
be made accessible Tahiti does
not produce sulllcient beef for its
requirements, and is therefore com
pelled l.o go abioad to supply its
needs. Beef cattle arc imported
from New Zealand and elsewhere.
With monthly stenni communication
between Hawaii and Tahiti our
stoekraiscrs would probably secure
a portion, if not the whole, of that
trade. It is understood that the
Hawaiian Executive regards Mon.
Coguet's project with favor, and it
is hardly likely that the Legislature
will view the matter with less

Any fool sabe that in Portugal
in order to advance a consulate to
first-class requires an Act of Parlia
ment and not a mere suggestion of
a stranger and intruder. Lately the
Government of Portugal take some
interest in the consulate system and
has mako very much needed
changes. Amongst the ones rised
to first-class are: Honolulu, San
Francisco and Georgetown. The
Portuguese colony in George
town is a very important and
wealthy one both commerci
ally and otherwise, anil no take
no back seat, as we do here. Now
mt like hear if he, our Boulanger,
has also get the appointment of the
first-class Consul to Georgetown.
Me tink this Italian crowd search

THE VERDICT OF ACQUITTAL.
Enixoit Buu.ivriK: The P. C. A.
of Oct. 23th, 2Gth and Nov. 1st con
tains articles strongly condemning a
Hawaiian jury, but they have not
been fined for contempt of court and
there is no fear they kr.ow, under
the present administration, of their
being used in a politically biased
manner. Although a Hawaiian
jury was sitting nt the time per
haps their comments would not in
fluence them. After fifty years of
blowing for them, when twelve na
tive jurymen would assemble in the
jury box, clad in a male and armed
with what wits mother nature had
kindly piovidcd them with, their
decisions then wore par excellence.
The voice of a Chief Justice was
never raised to demur and our re
form friends always applauded. The
wonderful wisdom developed in
thoie times by the Hawaiian could
be nceounted for only in the man
ner of men speaking in strange
tongues on the day of Pentecost.
Presto, change; how ignorant is the
native after being Christianized and
educated, with all the law, and
comrades turning state's evidence,
and every available force brought
to bear to secure a conviction of the
rebel Wilcox, yet he is acquitted.
We would thunk the P. C. A. on
behalf of the Hawaiians for showing
its hand so plainly. You would
abolish the Hawaiian jury in his
own country and have him tried for
treason by foreign jurors that had
not been long enough in the coun
try to distinguish a native Hawaiian
from a native from Fiji or any other
island of the Pacific. And this is
your ideas of justice. If so, the
Hawaiian may well put you to blush.
What could have transpired to open
the eyes of Hie Hawaiian to his true
position in his own country more
fully than tlio manner of dealing
outjustice during tho past few
weeks and the comments of the P.
C, A. on tho Hawaiian? Thoy may
be slow in their trustful simplicity
hut think you they are so brainless
not to know who arc their friends
and who ure ntt, who are rebels and
who are not, wi should give them all
tho protection the law will allow but
those sitting In high places, are paid
fat salaries and sworn to do ho, do
We would quote from tho P. C.
A. of Oct. 28th, in the reply of the
Ministers to the petition of the citi
zens of Honolulu: "History tolls of
Uinhy llivfisiblia of one country by
inhabitants of another in which Hid
invndtnl people were conquered and
blotted out as a nation. In those
limes the invader came with lire and
sword and meeting with a like re
sistance they did not reap the bene
fits of the conquered land without
the risk and danger of battle and
loss of lives. The invaded people
fought in their own defense and no
docti inaire, even in tlihage, maintains
that they were not morally as well
as legally justified in resisting the
enemy by every minus in their
Wilcox was tried for a political
offense. Now allowing that the
native has a fractional part of patri
otism in his composition, he would
not accept the theory advanced that
the success of a rebellion makes It
right. AVc will go one better for
him and establish a precedent.
There may be law upon this point,
but it makes no difference. We
have a full Hedged patent on this
aitiele and claim a better right than
any judge to use it, by stating that
under certain conditions of society
the law and evidence docs not. al
ways cover all the points of a case
before a jury. That California
coach yarn fits' very well the circum
stances of the rebellion of '87. Jt
took the Hawaiian passengers two
years to wake up to the conviction
that those fellows would shoot. Now
they want the coach and when the
Hawaiian get up a little national
champ dc mars on his own nccount
a little bigoted beggar who has
conic to tins, what he would call
nigger country, for what he can
make out of it.cries out, "Shoot him,
hang him, without trial." The
seven llawaiiaus shot to death died
as men and not as cowards. If
there is atonement in blood, there
was enough shed for other sin than
their own. It is not many years
ago that a Chief Justice in this
country reversed the unanimous de
cision of a foreign jury. How the
foolish racket depreciates values,
but it did not stop an English syndi
cate from building a railroad on
Hawaii. We must be very careful
now what wo say and how we say
it, write and how we write it, be
cause the law lor contempt, con
spiracy and treason is
Eonoit Buu.iniN: Wo are told
that: "Sacrifices have been made
for the planter in defiance of the
spirit of freedom;" "Concessions
must come from the planters." The
planters arc blamed because there
arc from 2,000 to 4,000 Chinese in
and around the towns, "filling bet
ter paid positions."
Instead of this being the planters'
fault it is something of which they
have a right to complain, as they
imported most of this help, and
tauglrt them how to do plantation
labor ; then to have them taken from
them by bribery, by offering them
soft jobs, more genteel positions and
better pay, takes all blame from the
planters, as by thus losing their help
they had to send thousands of miles
at great expense and risks, to get
others to fill their places. They
were not driven from the planta
tions, as almost invariably when
their shipping time expires they arc
asked to remain at increased wages.
Some stop with us, but the prospects
of an easier job in and around Ho
nolulu entices many from us, and
these arc the ones complained of by
the Honolulu agitators; but wc
think the boot is on the wrong foot,
when the planters are blamed for it.
Wc are told that natives find fault
with the plantations because the
Chinamen arc doing work which the
natives ought to do. That the Chi
nese are doing work which the
natives ought to do wc admit, but
deny that tho native is grumbling
about it, as we hear nothing about
it in Hamakua, and every nativo is
at work that wants work. If it be
a fact that as a people they do find
fault about it,they have themselves,
not the plantations, to blame for it,
as many of them lure Chinamen in
stead of their own people to raise
their sweet potatoes and taro, and
manufacture their poi for them ;
they rent lands to the Chinamen and
give to them their daughters in mar
riage. Thus they entice the Chinese
from the plantations ; they seem to
fraternize with, and welcome the
So the finding fault with tho plan
tations because the Chinese do other
than plantation labor, comes with
very bad grace from the native, as
well as from the foreigners ol the
town. In tho towns many of the
well-to-do foreigners and some that
nre not so well-to-do, hiro Chinamen
away from tho plantations. Wo
hear that two of the agitators against
the Chinese each hire 15 Chinamen.
Wo find no fault with others having
work to do, hiring Chinamen lo do
it, but we don't want to be blamed
and threatened with vengeance be
cause they do it. AVc, of course,
would rather have the Chinamen left
on the plantations and would yet
welcome them back, and cease im
porting others to fill their placus.
We have not driven them from lis
and if thoy had not been enticed
away, the last three shiploads of
Japanese would not have been
wautep, as the Chinamen could have
filled every requirement of the
plantations' low class labor. How
tho rail and other roads could have
been built, the gardens of Honolulu
cultivated, its markets supplied with
cheap fish, its dirty linen washed,
its front yardB kept presentable, its
mansions supplied with acceptable
Sctvtthla, vegetable fruit and" ilsli
brought to every liitilt's door, and
tho native supplied with taro and
poi, aio not now Under discussion,
hut no doubt it will come up in n
very serious shape, if the agitators
succeed in making the planters
"Government pels," that is, giving
them the only royal right to import
These nrc said lo bo hard feelings
among tho natives because they
"don't gel more of the Government
ollices." This may be true, but
only to a small extent, from this
fool, if tho natives held all the of
fices tho great majority of them
would have no olllec, ns there arc
not offices enough to go round. No
doubt this large majority who never
held office, nor over expect to,
would prefer a competent white man
In a responsible government olllec,
Tor a publicservant, to 'an incompe
tent native, and would think his in
terests eafor in his hands, If but
few of the natives hold olllec they
arc as well off as they were befoie
the revolution, and as well off as
the majority of our white citizens,
a very few only of whom hold olllee,
however competent thoy may be.
If this unwholesome agitation is
kept up in Honolulu against the
Government, the planters and the
Chinese, (though all false) after a
lime sonic may believe the charges
and in consequence worse tilings
may yet happen than the Wilcox re
bellion, which undoubtedly grow-out
of the agitation of erroneous ideas
kept up the past months by a few
unsatisfied white men aud a still
fewer disappointed natives.
Wilcox holds about the same po
sition willi regard to the conse
quences of the late rebellion, ns
Guiteau did to the death of that
good man Gai field, and as that
criminal agitation kept up by Conk
ling Pratt and others against Gar
field went on until it fired the crazy
pate of Guiteau to put Gai field out
of the way, which he did, he said,
"to unite the Republican party"
even so, tho unwholesome agitation
kept up in Honolulu by tho agita
tors against the planters and the
Government went on until the weal;
brain of Wilcox became inspired
with the thought that it would bo a
wise thing for him lo do, to over
turn the Government and take pos
session as "dictator," give tho coun
try a new constitution and a new
Cabinet, and thus make all things
lovely. And as the agitators urged
on Guiteau until it culminated in
the shedding of innocent blood, and
partook largely of his. guilt, even fo
the unjust agitation here against the
Government must morally share
with Wilcox and his party the con
sequences of their bloody deed.
In this district we hear no grum
bling except from Honolulu noth
ing to find fault about. All are busy
that want to be. The natives arc
doing a goodly share of plantation
labor, and hold all the Government
paying positions except one or two.
Our District Judges, lawyers and
policemen are all natives and no
complaint is made. Kalakaua is
king and foreigners are satisfied.
