'Mtreil to neither Sect nor Party,
But established for the benefit of all.
.MONDAY, FED. 21, 1S90.
Weather like, the present must
convince every man that large ex
penditures, on street making without
porresnondin" outlay on dramatic
involve great waste of the revenues.
A Maui correspondent repeals the
old complaint of inellieiont mail ser
vice by nteaniers. This and the
iiieslion of improved landing ar
langemeuU were promised attention"
by the National Ueform 1'nrty.
They are bound to be increasingly
urgent questions until satisfactorily
dealt with by the Legislature.
ISepublican papers claim that tiic
linancial distresses of Inst year were
due to the uncertainty of tariiT legis
lation, that this is really the first
year of the Harrison administration,
and that times are distinctly improv
ing nil over the land. We hope the
litter claim is correct, at all events,
and that Hawaii will get some wash
from the wave of prosperity.
The system of having people form
a line at the postollice on heavy
mail days has proved a great im
provement over the former jostling
mob plan. Still there is a grievance
about which complaints have been
heard. This is no other than that
of ladies standing outside the line
'iiid inducing the ullra-gallant to
break ranks to let them in out of
their turn. Business, it is held by
the complainers, is business ahead
of cTerything eNo on such occa
sions. The Bii.i.uiin would express
no opinion on the matter.
THE CABLE QUESTION.
It i not hard to agree with the
Advertisei in its general view that
inouopoly is not always an evil and
competition not always a benefit.
There is no doubt, however, that we
look at the Pacific cable (pietion in
a different light from that in which
i- is regarded by our contemporary.
The Advertiser aysi :
Other things being equal, nothing
suould'he done which would exclude
the possibility of our obtaining the
benefits of two cable lines if there
were any piospeets whatever of two
being laid. On the other hand it
would be foolish to sacrifice the
pesenl advantage lesiiltuig from
o io cable to the i emote future ad
vantages aiising fiom two. If the
cable cannot be laid without the
granting of an exclusive franchise,
s it'll a franchise should be aranted.
On the other hand no exclusive fran
e lise should be given to any com
pany unless it should be necessary,
t ,r the furtherance ol some public
pud. such as the encouragement of
hoiii'i capital, or the moio speedy
laying of the cable.
This reasoning would be all very
well if it was based on a correct
estimate of the situation. We may
be mistaken, but we think, the cable
is less dependent on Hawaii's action
than seems to be thought by a good
many people. No subsidy that this
country could atford would be an
abject in itself for inducing either a
dflinestic or foreign company to lay
ji cable ending at these Islands.
There would not be enough business
in such a cable, for many years to
come, to warrant the expense of its
construction and maintenance as a
commercial project. It is exceed
ingly doubtful if either the United
Htates or'drcat Britain would subsi
dize ji mere branch cable from either
af theii; (erritoiies to these islands.
As a station on a line running cither
between the Western and Eastern,
(-tr5 "" -J-.
Ul1 fttitUlriH ftrul boutlittu iiutuU
titobhi hdftfiVWi Hawaii would
Wnlrlbtilc h cotlsltliifabio teVUluio to
llil) chtcrprlsci bcjldea fclvin$ tho
advantages of landing in the Vast
stretch. Cables seem to seek ils
many laud breaks as possible with
out regard to exportation of bust
ness. This is shown both by the
practice of Atlantic cable corpora
tions and by the mooted cubic pi fl
it-els in the racilic. Hawaii can
offer both a convenient landing and
the piospcct of u fair quota of busi
ness, as well as, in consideration of
tlie great benefits to herself, pro
mise a respectable subsidy. Sim is
therefore almost certain to be a stn
tlon in any trans-Pacific cable route.
Being so it would be very unwise
from her limited resources to make
exorbitant concessions to any for
eign scheme, and It is simply idle to
suppose that she can afford snlllcicnt
inducements to enable a domestic
company to assume the lisks of lay
ing a cable.
There are two great chances for
our getting cable coiiimunication,and
botli seem to be increasing. Hawaii
is certainly in view as a station in
both schemes, and thcrefoic we have
urged that neither should be ob
structcd in favor of the other. One
comes from the I'nited States, hav
ing both commercial and political
elements. It is for a through line
from the Pacific Coast to cither
Japan or Australia, probably to the
tatter as that would involve connec
tion with the former. The business
community of the Pacific Coast is
awake to the importance of such a
project and will undoubtedly bring
strong pressure to bear in its favor
at Wa-hingtou. United States in
terests in the Pacific are pleading
with increasing power for cable
communication in this direction.
The other chance lies in ltritish Im
perial inteiests. A cable under
British auspices will most likaly be
run from British Columbia to the
Australasian Colonies. As to its
near probability we have the fact of
two vessels of the navy having been
engaged now for several years sur
veying the route in the South Paci
fic, also the recent annexation or
islands in that quarter for professed
cable purposes. The projected
steamship line between the same
countries is a cognate pait with the
proposed cable in one Imperial de
sign. There is little doubt that
both will lie realized before many
Sensible people will hardly con
tend that such great projects as
either the American or Uritish will
be dependent on the granting io
one as against tho other of exclusive
privileges by Hawaii. We have
stifllcicnt inducements to offer cither
or both without monopoly. Hotlt
can exist in the not remote future
without exclusive privileges at these
islands. Competition would be a
great boon to our people in vatious
ways, and it would be silly for us to
prevent it. Look at the enprmoiis
development of tho Atlantic cable
business since ISfii!. From the sin
gle cable then restored after a pre
vious failure there are live or six
cables now working, and a Canadian
company has just asked the Legis
lature for a charter for another one.
When the commercial and political
interests of the two greatest nations
of the world are calling loudly on
each of them for Pacific telegraphs-,
it is simply ridiculous for this little
kingdom to imagine that it can
hasten or hinder either of them in
realizing its particular scheme. But
Hawaii can hurt herself very seri
ously by being too eager in granting
exclusive privileges. .A monopoly
such as we oppose had to be swept
away by the Dominion Parliament
because it stood in the way of the
NOTES FROM MAUI.
Kin nut lln.i.r.i in : The weather
lias been most disagreeable here on
Maui for a long time, anil rain has
beer! plentiful. Yesterday and to
day :it has poured down, aecom
paiiied by claps of thunder. The
loads are converted into roaring tor
rents, a deep cut in the middle mak
ing the road look like an immense
gutter. Mud Is in places several
feet deep, and trallle almost at a
standstill. Ilusincss is of course
suffering as a consequence, people
not being able to move about. There
is no sign of it stopping either.
I.a grippe lias got as good a grip
here as anywhere else, but appears
to be of a 'mild form.
l'olilics arc at a standstill at pre
sent, and most peoplo think it will
be a tie in the coming Legislature.
There are some, though, that feel
sure the National Heform l'aity will
get u majority. If that turns out to
be the ease, hope is enteitained that
that party will try to make the har
bors and landings public property
and not, as, at present, private eon-

prevents people from answering

considerably with the mail carriage

Daily Buuxtix of the 18th by
Echo that the mail carrier of the

man carries the mail now, who car

not know how he voted.
