I fool that it is scarcely fair to Mr. I
Bishop to offer anonymous criticism I
on liis political letters. Jt is miii'li
easier to fi iitl fault with another
man's writing, than to present ori- ,
ginal ichas of one's own. lint as j
personality has really nothing to do !
with facts and conclusions derived I
therefrom, and as hope always to I
maintain a tone of courtesy nniin-'
paired by tho assumption of a "noin I
do plume," I shall boldly proceed
with a second body of suggestions
on Mr. Bishop's remarks. T shall i
adopt in v own order considering
them. " '
1 do not admit that the cruiser
Host on can overawe this Kingdom. '
If Hawaii were determined to resist
intrusion, it would be a hopeless
tusk for the Boston to undertake
coercion, ISxoopt for pressing emer
gency, and quelling a partial distur
bance, 1 venture to say that tho L5os
ton would soon sigh for relief, if op
posed to a nsmg of the population.
The fate of the Twenty-fourth Uegi
ment in Zululand. where 81X) magni
ficent troops fully equipped and
strongly laagered, foil before tho
assegai of the Zulu, proves that
numbers, even inadequately armed,
must prevail again.st a handful of
"When Great Britain .-out four
ships of war t hrotigh t ho Dardanelles
at the time of the Russian occupa
tion of San Stofano, it was not tho
ships that i est rained the Russian
advance on Constantinople, but the
power of Great Britain which sup
ported them. The historic sentry
placed by Wellington on the bridge
of Jena saved the bridge from Prus
sian vengeance, merely because he
represented the power of England,
forbidding the demolition of tho
1 cannot believe that, tho Boston is
hero for purposes of intimidation.
If o, who is intimidated? Nor do I
think tho correspondent to whom
Mr. Bishop refers may fairly be
made to represent anybody's view
but his own. I imagine Mr. Bishop
himself attaches but little impor
tance to the strange statements
which appeared in tho letter which
that correspondent wrote.
T really fail to follow Mr. Bishop
in the conclusions he draws from
his considerations of Malta and
If Malta and Bermuda bo "strate
gic outposts," they certainly ought
not to belong to Great Britain, but
to Italy and tho United States re
spectively. Besides, neither Ber
muda nor Malta has, within tho
memory of the oldest inhabit tint,
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 destroy tins political inde
pendence of a kingdom so rich, so
fertile and so populous as the Ha
The inconvenience arising to Am
erica during tho civil war goes to
prove that Nassau should not be in
tho hands of a hostile power. But
1 have not heard that Mr. Blaino or
any other American statesman con
templates sending a cruiser in that
direction. Nassau is in close prox
imity to tho United States. A few
hours' sail and tho trip is over. But
Hawaii is far differently situated.
More than two thousand miles from
the nearest American port, it would
be a desperate game for a blockade
runner to play. Moreover, American
cities would be blockaded and it,
would be much to their advantage
to have Hawaiian produce intro
duced through tho blockading licet.
Our heterogeneous population
ma be a source of danger to us,
but. it I ma compioe great thingn
with small, 1 shall ask whot ho t her po
pulation of tho United States bo so
homogeneous that she should pro
tect others from a danger which, if
Mr. Bishop bo correct, must be felt
alarmingly at homo.
Liberty correctly understood is
not to do what one' pleases, but, to
respect tho just rights ot others,
while exorcising tho prerogatives of
independence oneself. This we have
in Hawaii. More than this we need
not seek. And if we did I question
if wo should Hud it by committing
our ways, to any foreign power.

.Many travelers have sketched
their impressions of scenery and life
in the Hawaiian Islands -"tho Para
dise of the Pacific" as tho How Mr.
Gowen has it on his title page. It
is worth doing again, if for no other
reason, because the aspects of society
in Honolulu are constantly chang
ing. It becomes more and more
diliicult to get a glimpse of "uncivil
ized Hawaii." Tho Chinese as well
as the Americans are coming in and
promise, or threaten, to transform
tho land. Mr. Gowen was a mission
ary among the Chinamen, and speaks
of the yellow race more favorably
than those who know thorn less inti
mately. Ho writes also in a livelier
strain than is usually found in a
missionary's note-book. The chap
tors on Hawaiian customs and super
stitions, on Chinese work and Chi
nese ways, and on leprosy, are speci
ally worth study, and lie by no
means neglects the picturesque as
pects of the country, tho results of
church work and propaganda among
tho natives, and the curious prob
lems presented by the contact of
civilization with tho clover and at
tractive Polynesian race. The Srolx

Mr. J. P. Blai.e, an extensive real
estate dealer in Des Moines, Iowa,
narrowly escaped one of tho severest
attacks of pneumonia while in tho
northern part of that state during a
, recent bh.zard, says the Sulitnluy
1 J'cn'i'ir. Mr. Blaizo'had occasion to
drive several miles during tho storm
and was so thoroughly chilled that
ho was unable to get warm, and in
side of an hour after his return ho
( was threatened with a severe case of
, pneumonia or lung fever. .Mr. Baize
sent totheneaiest drugstore , and got
a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Re
medy, of which ho had often heard,
and took a number of largo doses.
Ho says tho oll'oct was wonderful and
, in a short time ho was breathing
quite easily. Ho kept on taking tho
i medicine and tho next dav was able
i to come to Dos Mojnes, Mr. Blaizo
1 regards his euro as simply wonderful.
