SATURDAY, JAN. 9, 1892.
All who would like to sec a free
library and reading room in Hono
lulu are told by Mr. Cartwright in
this paper how the end may be ac
complished. A short time ago the Bulletin
contained an item that the Reform
party had held a meeting in a down
town oflicc. Two or three days later
a member of the building committee
of Central Union Church told the
editor that his paper had mistaken a
meeting of that committee for a poli
tical meeting. The gentleman thought
it a good joke on the paper, and the
editor acknowledged the corn but
forgot to do so in the paper. Now
that a coriespondent of the Adver
tiser has used the erroneous item to
point an argument, it is only proper
to set the public right on the matter.
THE TRIBUNE AND THE TREATY.
An article from the New Yoi k Tri
bune is reprinted in this issue. Its
writer shows he is at sea in regaid to
tho histoiy of recent treaty negotia
tions between the United States and
Hawaii. The treaty that was drop
ped by the Hawaiian Government
did not meet that fate on account of
any commercial concessions it con
tained from Hawaii to the United
States. It aroused opposition to it
self b' a proposed clause to empower
the United States to land troops here
at the request of any Cabinet that
might be in power. Then all this
happened in tbo reign of the late
King. If there was any blame in
the matter the present "Queen and
her Ministers" were not the proper
objects of the "discipline" that the
Tribune says was necessary to con
vince them "that tho Islands were
commercial dependencies of the
United States." Tho "discipline"
was in fact applied, by the passage
of the sugar clauses of the McKinley
Act, long before the Queen began her
reign. There is one statement in the
Tribune's article, however, which
should bo food for reflection to those
people here who have been unceasing
in lamentations over the failure of the
proposed treaty, they agreeing with
tho Tribune that 'this Government
deserved to have been disciplined
sharply by the United States for re
jecting tho measu o. That is, where
tho Tribune refers to what it calls
the "demand" carried to Washing.
ton, by our present representative
there, Dr. Smith. This so-called de
mand is "that the planters should
shure in the benefits of the direct
bounty system, now applied to all
sugar-producers in thVunitcd States."
The Tribune says, "This was a con
cession which could only have accow-
panted nnncxnllon, ami that was at
least premature." Here the Tribune
confirms the argument of those
hero who opposed the treaty in ques
tion, an argument whtch may bo
summaiizcd as follows: 1. Tho
United Stales will never grant boun
ties to any foreign products. 2.
It would be foolish for this country (
to grant cxlra-territonat control as a
concession in advance in return for a.
favor that will never be granted. 3.
Even if granted Hie favor is liable to
bo abolished at any moment by
United States llscat legislation, as the
Supreme Court of thai country had
decided that no treaty could stand
in the way of the expressed will
of tho people through Congress the
later expression, whether by treaty
or domestic law, over-riding anything
inconsistent therewith in the earlier
deliverance, just as the latest legis
lation on any subject in this country
over-rules all laws previously enact
ed on the same subject if there be
any conllict in construction. Accord
ing to the Tribune, which is one of
the leading organs of American pub
lic opinion, we eannot have bounties
from the United States apart from
annexation, and that is "at least
premature." If we cannot now we
could not then, and if bou'ntios to
Hawaiian sugar had been an indis
pensable condition of the McKinley
Act, that measure would never have
become a part of American legisla
tion. FREE LIBRARY AND READING
A week or more ftgo a communica
tion appeared in your columns
strongly advocating the establish
ment of an institution of the above
named kind at public or government
expense. Should tho p.oplc ol this
country as represented in the Legis
lature approve of such a project, the
means for carrying the same iulo ef
fect are at hand and would not re
quiic any heavy expense. The
Library and Reading Room Associa
tion on the corner of Hotel and Ala
kea streets has been in operation
over twelve years, and has always
looked forward hopefully to a time
when its means would allow of its
being made free. It owns a hand
some and convenient building, which
with the ground on which it stands
is free from debt. This building
contains a well assorted library of
some ten thousand volumes, also a
well equipped and liberally supplied
The association has recently bought
and paid tor the lot in the lear of the
present structure, extending one
hundred and nine feet on Alakea
street. Ample space for future ex
pansion is thus provided for. The
institution is well organized, has
an excellent librarian and can be
made entirely free whenever the
government or private individuals
see fit to put up the necessary coin
per annum to pay current expenses.
It would be a waste of both energy
and money to start another institu
tion of a similar kind in a place of
the size of Honolulu, with the idea
of making it free, when better re
sults can be obtained and at a frac
tion of the cost through an organiza
tion already existing and well estab
lished. To properly organize, cata
logue, care for and run a general re
ference and circulating library of
even five to ten thousand volumes
requires an amount of time and of
laborious, painstaking effort which
those who have not undertaken such
a work have very little idea of.

Honolulu, Jan. 9, 1892.
Mr. Slocclde's exhibition of Edi
tion's improved phonograph at Y. M.
(J. A. hall last night was fairly pat
ronized. Mrs. E. Gray played an
overture on the piano with her accus
tomed ability, and in the course of
the program accompanied Prof. Ord
way in some fine selections on tho
mandolin and banjo.
The opening speech given to tho
machine by Mr. E. Godfrey and the
dozen songs rendered by the phono
giaph were quite distinct to those in
the f ion t of the hail. A number of
boys spoiled tho exhibition to a large
extent by noisy movements of their
feet and loud talking. They should
have been ejected. One of tho most
amusing songs was "Barnyard
Voices," by the famous minstiel,
Billy Emerson, with banjo accom
paniment. The entertainment was
much enjoyed, every number being
MR. W. G. ASHLEY.
The editor of Ka Leo had belter
know that there are those amongst
tho supporters of the Liberals, who
take rather u different view of Mr.
Ashley and find no dillieulty in be
lieving Unit mechanics and working
men would have had a great cham
pion in their cause if it was their
good fortune to 6ee Mr. Ashley
elected, no matter on what ticket.
Ho would bo the same in the Legis
lature as he is in business life, u luiiu
of the people, trusted and loved by
the masses regardless of nationality.
It is a matter of great regret amongst
tho masses that Mr. Ashley has
decided not to run, Liukkai..
