TUESDAY, Al'dl'ST f, 1S?0.
Ilopresentntive llosa 1 ebukes
members of the Legislature for un
queationingly accepting slieet tall;.
It is to be hoped tho lcbuire will
have the weight it deserves Gen
tlemen who appropriate baseless
ubutter, and impose it upon the
House n? tho earnest, conviction of
their minds or i3 the solid truth
which they can verify, thereby show
their unfitness for tho position to
which their constituencies have
elected them. Representatives of
the people should bo more judicious
and dlgnitled. Honolulu street talk
may, and often doet, contain two or
three lines of truth in n column of
misrepresentation, exaggeration, unil
downright falsehood. Seldom in
deed, if ever, doe-; it speak "the
truth and nothing but the truth."
Honolulu, perhaps, is no worse than
other small towns, all such being
moie or less given to looseness of
speech, but it is unquestionably
very bad in this regaid. The acme
or foolishness is lor anybody to bolt
aa truth whalcer is heard on the
streets and propagate it as such,
and it is particularly undignified in
u member of the Legislature to col
lect that commodity and deal it out
wholesale in the Assembly.
REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON HA

dent of the Legislative Assembly,
iiiri Your committee to whom
was referred Bill No. 38, to extend
the time for the completion and
equipment of tho Inter-Island Sub
marine Telegraph Cable to July
:11st, 1892, beg to repot t that it has
taken the subject of this bill into
careful consideration, and has held
several investigating meetings, at
some ot which meetings Mr.
J. Sherman Bartholomew (the
gentleman named in the aforesaid
bill) was present by request of your
Your committee have examined
sundry charts showing ocean sound
ings, nature aud chniacter of sea
beds, etc., in the proposed line of
cable to be laid between, and con

Your committee have examined
samples of cables and telegraph in
btiuments such as are used in oilier
important business parts of the woi Id
ami which have been in active and
continual use for a gi eat number of
years doing complete service and
giving thorough satisfaction.
Your committee are informed that
the said J. Sherman Bartholomew
have alicady spent a sum approxi
mating 20,000 in cables, and sun
dry material, labor, etc., etc., in
laying the same. Tho said J. Sher

complete, such as aie being used in
other business purt-r of the woild,
which he is positive will answer its
requirements, stund the wear and
utruins of the seas, and give full
watisfaolion to the Hawaiian Govern
ment. He is prepared to supply a simi
lar cable to that now in uso between
Halifax and Trinity Bay, Ireland, a
distance of about eleven hundred
miles, or a similar steel wire cable
to that known us the Shore-end Tor

Bay and on the United States coast

bo served with a proper protective
serving before laying in place, and
shall possess if copper conductor of
tho si.o, quality and alrerigth con
tained tho first cable herein abovo
namod samples of both of which ca
bles accompany this report. He is also
prepared to supply instruments
known as the Morse telegraph in
HtrumentR, adopted by tho Interna
tional Congrcs at Paris in 1872, and
havo been in use ever since.
He further agrees to completo
what is known as "Section 1st,"
"that is from Oaliu, to Walluku,
Maui," within eight months, and
"Section 2," that is fiom Oaliu via
Molokai and Maui, to Hawaii within
twelvemonths from and after the
passage of tho aforesaid bill, grant

OUR AMERICAN LETTER.
Saw FnAXCisco, July 23.
There iu not much of special in
terest to v. ute about. This gre.it
country is enjoying tho blessings of
peace aud moderately average pros
perity, while oilier countries are
either distracted by war or com
pelled to maintain armies which aie
more exhaustive of the people's
wealth than a decisive campaign
would probably be. Our sensation
al news-mongers, however, have
been doing their bct to get up a
war scare, by exaggerating every
Milling incident connected with the
Behrmg Sea question, and when
those could not bo so twisted then
supplying the defect by manufac
turing the needed paper thunder.
Of a class with tho imaginary Bch
ring Sea naval demonstration by
England and piratical lleet of Vic
torian scalers, is the Lower Cali
fornia annexation sensation. When
the facts in tho latter case arc sep
arated from tho fiction theio will
not be a single peg left on which to
hang a sensation. But competing
newspapers must live. This i3 the
epoch of sensational journalism and
the paper which does not supply
the unwholesome demand for serua
tion3 will soon drop out of sight.
Most opportunely comes a real
war on American soil, hostilities
having been begun by Guatemala
and San Salvador. You were in
formed of tho situation in Cenlial
America by the Australia's mail.
Since then it appears that a Guate
maliau force crossed the frontier
and was repulsed by the San Salva
dor troops. Reinfoi cements have
been ordered to tho front, and
Honduras is sending an army to
support Guatemala, while Mexico,
which has an unsettled boundaiy
question with its southern neighbor,
has massed an army on the frontier
and threatens to invade Guatemala
if it pioeeeds to extremities with
San Salvador. In the south and
west, Nicaragua and Co3ta Rica as
sures San Salvador of their moral and
material support, but tlicy cannot
march their troopi to the scene of
action under four or six weeks, so
that at the outset San Salvador must
depend upon its own forces. Gua
temala has bent a specinl envoy to
Washington to protest against Mex
ican intervention, and San Salvador
likewise appeals to Uncle Sam
against Guatemala. Tne latter
stands upon the treaty of confeder
ation which the new Salvador Gov
ernment repudiates. The former
wants to compel the consolidation
ot the five Central American repub
lics into one Government after tho
pattern of the United States of
Columbia in South America. It
would undoubtedly be an improve
ment if the unification of Central
America could be carried out peace
fully. Permanence cannot be looked
for should force prevail. It is
amusing, however, to see how soon
the lucrouiiol peoples of so-called
Latin America forget their pledge
to submit all international disputes
to arbitration. Mr. Blaine has had
two Btiiking examples of the futility
of his eiforts to promote reciprocity
with the Latin American States and
to induce them to accept, and abide
by the principles of tho Peace So
ciety in the fiscal policy of our own
Congress and tho fratricidal war in
which Central America has embark
ed. Neveitholess Guatcnialajias a
big public works loan on the Lon
don market and it is likely to be
subscribed on good terms. English
capital takes greater risks apparent
ly in the revolutionary countries of
America than it was prepared to
lake in revolutionary Hawaii if one
may judge by tint heavy discount
and expenso of floatinp the little
Hawaiian Joan In London. Even
repudiation has few terror to tho
capitalists of England on Amorlcan
soil, north or Bouth.
WOKE ATTEirr-rED UV COKOIIE33,
Congress has been attempting to
work in the sweltering boat of Wash
ington and business has been gotten
through after a fashion in their
bottsee. One-third of the House of
Representatives w paired, aud al
most daily departuica of cxhmtslid
lawmakers lake plaue. The Senate
has been wiestliug with the Tariff
Bill, despite the sultry weather, fall
ing bni! upon the appropriation
bills by way of respite. J'he "force"
bill, that is the Congressional Elec
tion Lsw, bit induced by Lodge of
Massachusetts, i, likewise a heavy
load to .Senntnn, the majority of
whom would willingly shelve it but
are afraid of tho oi:tr.iuc members
of the Republican parly, who hope
to perpetuate their power by intio
ducing tho bayoiut at all president
ial and congressional elections.
Should titis iniquitous m 'usure be
enacted a free b.illot will soon be
come a tiadliiou in the United
Stale. Willi armed uieicenaries

preioiiau guild, composed of the
grand army of public pensioners
manipulating the elections, tho worst
possible phase of Cesniiain would be
engrafted upon the political system
oi" the gieal Anglo-Saxon republic ul
Aiiu'iica. The outcome of such a
state of things is not dilllcttlt lo
forecast unless the sturdy British
slock has quite Ipsl its pith in Noith
Amuiea, aud as 3 cl Americans huut
shown uo signs cf deterioration
either iu their fighting qualities or
their inborn love of fie dm. They
are being attacked and bound In
thraldom, however, by the skilful
use of uuii-iilutiniml inethudt).
Should this "force" bill bicome
law, the vast body of tho people
would accept it without understand
ing much about it. But when it is
put into operation, and local and
sectional troublis aiisu aandiioot
and necesssn consequence, those
object, lessons will not fail to arouse
national indignation ot irresistible
strength. Meanwhile 11 n incalcula
ble amount of harm will have been
done. The colored race led by
Northern political tramps and back
ed by federal bayonets will bo made
the dominant force 111 the Sotnh. In
dustiial development will be check
ed. Capital will be withdrawn fiom
the unsettled urritory and a icign
of terror will be created to justify,
as it were, tins class legislation.
Should the Scnaie -helve lhi3 bill it
is safe to predict thai, il will not be
resurrected. Protests against it aie
being heard from all quarters, and
the more intelligent colored men of
the Noilh join in its condemnation.
But the political exploiters who
dominate the Republican party and
control ConuresS are delcrmiued eo
press it through and secure the Pre
sident's signature this session, al
though tlie agiiation in the South
has attained to such strength as to
become a national menace, and a
call has been issued 10 the Louisiana
Chamber of Commerce to concert
measures to boycot Northern pio
ducts an d trade. The coservativc
sentiment of the Soulh opposes this
extreme jtud necessarily lulile pro
ject, while Southern Republicans
are vigorously protesting against
the bill. It is known Blaine con
demns it as a mea&uie destructive
of the Republican paity but he has
lost control of that organization
which is run by Quay of Pennsylva
nia, who stands charged publicly
and without denial ot gigantic em
be.r.lemenl as a State t.llieor, and
as coiruptly inlluencirm the elec
tions in Indiana last presidential
contest as Chairman of the Repub
