WEDNESDAY, JAN. 29, 1890.
There is no use in the Honolulu
Daily Times tryinc; to stuff non
sense into the minds of intelligent
people. Tlieic is only one way in
which its pair's professed object of
making the reeipiocity treaty abso
lute and perpetual can he realized.
That way is organic union a politi
cal protectorate -annexation in all
The National lleiald is correct
when It a-'erl- that the piesent an
nexation movement is not fathered
by thorouglibiod Americans. There
aie outspoken suppoieis of the
Government'-, "laluitous scheme of
ft 'reused treaty with the States, who
are not American even by descent,
but who do hot conceal the. fact that
they favor that scheme becau-e it
lends to nnnexatioii.
A hen Hip campaign lllunde.r of
the variou-. Go eminent organs
grows faint, hat i to hinder them
Irom dtawing on the re-cive stores':
Theie are to be found in the politi
cal liieraluip of that "old regime,"
that foil to feius of the "now order,"
where there are bolts of eloquent
invectire originally hurled al the de
voted heads of Kaulukoii, Achi,
I'oepoe, K Co., now the valiant
champions of the Reform Party.
It is to be hoped that no copy of
the Honolulu Daily Times will ever
roaeli the eye of an American states
man oi of an American editor. A
great propoition of its Tuesday's
i-siio is devoted, evidently, to piov
ing that the iceiprocity treaty is lot
the most'part a fraud on the United
Stales. How the San Francisco
Chronicle would gloat orer a file of
flint sheet! A pretty picture of
patriotism it presents tliiough it
put blind jmilyism!
How is it that no writ of replevin
ever issued for the recovery of that
piccioiis Ministerial platform that
was unlawfully appiopriatcd by the
National Reform Paily? Is it be
cause, like O.sear Wilde's loo utter
ly utter lady friend, with her an
jC'icnt teapot, the esthetic souls of
Ministers, ilespaired of living up to
the consummate ideal? At all
events, this original and only out
post of the old Heformeis would
seem to have been abandoned to
The most successful statesmen
are statesmen who combine diplo
macy with statesmanship. The world
has not yet reached that stage of
enlightenment and honesty when, in
a free country, a statesman, however
worthy, can succeed by the merits
of his statesmanship, however en
lightened, without the aid of diplo
macy. Let the miniature statesmen
of Hawaii learn this fact and profit
'L'lie Times gives reasons lor be
lieving that the United States will
before long i aise all her own sugar
and rice, and get her supplies of
bananas from Mexico. Yet that
paper argues in behalf of compro
mising Ihwaii's independence for
the bake of seeming perpetual ac
cess to markets for our chief pro
ducts which, accoiding to its own
"bowing, aie liable Miortly to be
come utterly valueless, lleie is wis
dom, ( ) people!
The country may well ask of the
Ministry, with icgaid to the treaty
icvision matter, "Who hath required
this at your hands?" Was theie
any open agitation for "closer rela
tions," or more "enduring benefits,"
or anything else in the Reform cur
leney of cant phrases coined to
ludenitnly Hawaii for the loss ol her
independence'' None whatever,and
the scheme stands exposed as the
private conspiiacy of a small clique.
The conspirators foolishly imagine
so far as their minds can be
uaued bv their action that the
siiccp of their plot would put all
the power of the American Union at
their command. With this they
doubtless fondly thought they would
be enabled, and their posterity after
tliein. to nile these islands at their
sweet will for their own personal
and family aggrandizement.
WANT A JOINT GUARANTEE.
On the principle that the word of
a gentleman should be regarded as
lino -intil pioved to be otherwise,
the I'ri.i.rnx accepts the declara
tion of the "Times," that "it is not
for annexation," that it is "not for
a piotectorate;" and is in "full ac
cord" therewith in desiring "perma
nent free trade with the United
States." F.ut in the matter of "a
joint guaiantee of our independ
ence" by the great Towers the Rri.
i,i:tix is decidedly in opposition.
Notwithstanding the specious argu
ments of our contemporary, wc arc
of the opinion that a "joint guaran
tee" of four or five gres.t Powers,
any one of which may at any time,
for stiategie reasons, feel an im
pulse to seize and hold these isl
ands, is much safer and better for
us than the "sole guarantee" of any
one ol those Powers who may or
may not be in a position, under
emergencies that may arise, to de
fend us against the incursion of any
one of the others. A "joint guaran
tee" will make the independence of
the country about as secure as it
can be, but a "sole guarantee" will
not. The proposition is too self
evident to need cluoidation.' And
as we stand (Irmly for independence
so long as the country is capable of
self-government, wc favor a "joint
guarantee." The mixing of this
question with that of the Recipro
city Treaty, is the mixing of two
questions which have but a remote
relationship to each other.
"Kicking out" of ollice compe
tent men "who know and do their
duty" is a bad practice bad for
the duty, and unjust to the men.
The piacticc fignics too prominently
in the past fifteen yenix' history ol
this countiy. Many times rom
petent officials have been "kicked
out" at shoit notice, and sometimes
to make l.oom for less suitable men,
to the detriment of the public ser
vice. To kick out men who may
have crept into positions for whi.-h
neither nature nor education ever
intended them, is right ; but to dis
pense the same treatment to men
lilted by nature, education, and in
every other way for Hie olllcps they
hold, is wrong.
The piesent Adininisliatlon has
done.somc"kiekingout" some of it
wise and some foolish. Where ineffici
ent, negligent, or unfaithful men weie
the vitliins, the kicking was wise;
where tried and faithful servants
had to go, the kicking was foolish.
Moie kicking opt in some pl'ices and
less in others might piobably iutto
been for Hit1" good of the public
buivice. Sonic aspirants for place,
who believe that 'ltj the victor& be
long the spoils," have always Jield
that the kicking out proc.ess should
have breii carried much farther
alter the revolution of 1887, am
that eveiy competent as well its in-
cjlleicnt oflicial, should have been
disn.isscd from the service. The
Cabinet is to be commended for not J
having adopted that course. '
A desire to have somebody kicked
out is one of those idiosyncrasies I
which cannot by aiiy possible means
be eliminated from our national
character. There is not an indivi
dual in the public service, from the
king to the day laborer, concerning
whom somebody cannot be found
who cherishes a wish to see kicked
out. An archangel in olllcc would
probably be the object of the same
enmity. In the present political
campaign there Is moie than enough
talk about kickinir out to surfeit a
moderate man for the whole of a
long life. Talk is cheap, which ac
counts for its .supei abundance.
The latest talk is to kick out the
President of the Hoard of Educa
tion. ( iood reason therefor is want
ing. The position is purely honor
ary, and the duties of the olllcc per
formed without any remuneration
whatever. 'The present incumbent
is not only one of the most capable
men the country has for the posi
tion, but he gives a measuie of time
and attention to its duties that few
men could afford. We should le
gard the gentleman's letirement
tiom the Presidency of the Hoard
as a grave inisfoilune for the cause
THE SOCIAL QUESTION IN HAWAII.
Eunoit 111 i.i.i.'UN':- Some of the
planters seem to be indignant at
the charge utged again-t their body
ot having robbed the natives of their
lands. Tli's accusation wc believe
to be too general, but nobody can
deny that a good many ot the plant
ation owners went into partnership
with, or rented their lands from,
men who secured their propel ties bv
means and ways they can settle with
God and their conscience. Did,
moreover, sonic of the early land
grabbcis not go themselves into the
sugar business, so casting the gloom
of their bad repute on the whole
Everybody gives credit to the
planter's pluck, energy, and intelli
gence, that endowed Hawaii with
steamers, railroads, electric light,
etc. ; but would not coffee, indigo,
or other industries have produced in
due time similar icsults? And it
not, would tile natives in their grass
huts with their limited wants have
been less happy than they arc now
in their frame houses, with all the
necessities of civilized life? Would
we have thousands of dissatisfied
It is very true that our imported
laborers eain here wages double or
even treble those tliey received at
home, but arc tfic necessities of life
in their countiy not twice or thrice
cheaper than they are here? Rut
what of that? Why did the planters
come here? To make a fortune, we
suppose. Well, did our immigrants
not land on our shores to earn the
daily ciust of biead tint their over
crowded and exhausted country ic
tuses to their toil? And are they
not entitled to a few crumbs from
their employer's table?
As for sleepless nights and head
aches, we dare say that they are
the lot of every man who wants to
succeed in life, and we do not think
the planters expected to lie on a bed
of roses when they started business.
Some, as a matter of course, did
not make a fortune, but wheie on
earth is there an enterprise tiee of
failure? Was not extiavagance with
some, 12 per cent, compound inter
est, couimi&sions, cooperage nu pig
iron, and half crops (the mills tak
ing the lion's share), with others,
the causes of their ill luck?
It has been said that plenty of
land is left for an industrious man
to make a fortune on in other lines
of business but sugar, but wheie is
it, except in the hands of men who
are, as they say, "on the buy," and
not "on the sell.'" Is a poor man
expected to clear, fence in, brenk
up, ami Duild on rented land.' nut
suppose a working man seciues a
homestead, where can he make the
capital to stait with?
One will also say, we do not plant
cane but on uncultivated land. Hut
how Is it that we see every day
cane wave over hundicds of acres,
where tnro was thriving a few years
ago" And the planters seem to be
very eager to secure fucIi land, as it
will yit Id six or seven tons of sugar
to the acre.
It is a general belief that the
Portuguese have all plenty of money.
This is a very great niistake,as most
of them have nothing but debts;
and only the very few privileg
ed faniilich, composed of a father,
a mother, nud Unco or four full
grown children, all earning, can
succeed, by living on a diet of
bread, sweet potatoes and cabbage,
in saving a few dollars.
