I fool t lint it is seaieoly fair to Mr.
Bishop to oll'or anonymous criticism
on his political lottoi's. It is much
easier to lintl fault with another
man's wilting, than to present ori
ginal ideas of one's own. But as
personality has really nothing to do
with facts and conclusions derived
therefrom, and as hope always to
maintain a tone of courtesy unim
paired by the assumption of a "noin
do plume." t shall boldly proceed
with a second bod.v of suggestions
on Mr. Bishop's remarks. I shall
adopt my own order eousideting
I do not admit that the cruiser
Boston can oeiao this Kingdom.
If Hawaii were detei mined to resist
intrusion, it would be a hopeless
task for the Boston to undoitako
coeicion. Except for pressing emer
gency, and (uelling a pattial distur
bance, 1 venture to say that the Bos
ton would soon sigh for relief, if op
posed to a rising of the population.
The fate of the Twenty-fourth Regi
ment in Zululand. whom SIX) magni
ficent troops, fully equipped and
strongly laageied. fell before the
assegai of the Zulu, proves that
numbeis, even inadocpiatolv armed,
must prevail against a handful of

1 cannot believe that the Boston is
hero for puiposes of intimidation.
If so. who is intimidated? Nor do I j
think the correspondent to whom j
Mr. Bishop refers may faiily lie
made to represent anybody's view
but his own. I imagine Mr. Bishop
himself attaches but little impoi
taucc to the strange statements
which appeared in the lotlei which
that conespondont vvioto.
T really fail to follow Mr. Bishop
in the conclusions he draws fiom
his considerations of Malta and
If Malta and Bermuda be "strate
gic outposts," they certainly ought
not to belong to Great Britain, but
to Italy and the United States le
spoetivol.v. Besides, neither Boi
muda nor Malta has, within the
memory of the oldest inhabitant,
been a free, independent and .self
governing kingdom. It is one thing
to occupy an island which is at best
merely a strategic outpost, and an
other to dost toy the political inde
pendence of a kingdom so rich, so
fertile and so populous as the .Ha
The inconvenience aiisingto Am
erica during the civil war goes to
prove that Nassau should not be in
the hands of a hostile power. But
I have not heaid that .Mr. Blaine or
any other American .statesman eon-
templates .sending a cruiser in that
direction. Nassau is m close prox
imity to the United States. A few
hours' sail and the trip is over. But
Hawaii is far dillerently situated.
Moie than two thousand miles fioin
the neatest American poll, it would
be a desperate game for a blockade
runner to pla. Moieovei, American
cities would bo blockaded and it
would be much to their advantage
to have Hawaiian produce intro
duced through the blockading fleet.
Our hcfoiogcucoiis population
mav be a souiee of danger to us,
but. it 1 ma compaie gieat thing-i
w itli small, I shall ask whot he t her po
pulation of the United States bo so
homogeneous that sho should pro
tect othor.s from a danger which, if
Mr. Bishop bo correct, must bo felt
alarmingly at homo.
Libei ty conectly undeistood is
not to do what one pleases, but to
ro.spect the just rights ol others,
while exorcising the piorogativos of
independence oneself. This we have
in Hawaii. More than this we need
not seek. And if we did I question
if wo should find it by committing
our ways to any foioign power.

Main travelers have sketched
their iumiossioiis of uouorv and life
in the Hawaiian Islands -"The Pata
diso of the Pacific" as tho ov. Mr.
Gowen has it on his title page. It
is vvoith doing again, if for no other
jeason. because the aspoeK of society
in Honolulu are constantly chang
ing. It becomes moio and more ,
dillicult to got a glimpse of "uncivil- ,
izod Hawaii." The Chinese as well
as tho Americans are coming in and
promise, or threaten, to tianforui
the land. Mr. Gowen was a mission
ary among the Chinamen, and speaks
of the yellow race more fav orably t
than those who knew them loss inti
mately. Ho writes also in a livelier
strain than is usually found in a
missionary's note-book. The chap- i
tors on Hawaiian customs and super
stitions, on Chinese work and Chi
nese ways, and on leprosy, are speci- I
ally worth studv, and he by no
moans neglects the picturesque as- '
poets of the country, the results of I
chinch work and propaganda among
the natives, and tho cm ions prob
lems presented bv the contact of
civilization with tho clever and at
tractive Polynesian race. The Si oil

Mr. .1. J'. Blaie, an extensive real
estate dealoi in Dos .Moines, Iowa,
narrowly escaped one of tho severest '
attacks of pneumonia while in the
noithern pint of that state during a
recent blizzard, .says t ho Sulimluy i
llrrii'iv. Mr. Blaio had occasion to :
drive -ovoial miles during the storm ,
and was so thoroughly chilled that i
ho was unable to got waim, and in
side of an hour after his return he '
was tlncaionod with a severe case of
pneumonia or lung fever. Mr. Baie
sent to t he ueaiost diugsloie and got
a hot tie of Chamberlain's Cough Re
medy, of which he had often heaid,
and took a iiumbei of huge do-os.
He sa.s thoeiloct was wonderful and
in a short time ho was bioathing
quite easily. Ho kept on taking the
medicine and the uo.xt day was ablo i
to come to Dos Moiuon. Mr. Blaio
