But Established for the Benefit of All.
SATURDAY, MAY 18, 181)3.
That rabid element in Honolulu,
which has boon bosido itsolf with
rago ovor the statomout of tho situ
ation mado by Mr. Charlos NordhoiT
in tho Now York Herald, will got
but small satisfaction out of tho
ablest expositions of United States
public opinion. Mr. NordhoiT has a
reputation as a keon and correct ob
server and a conscientious man all
ovor Amorica, which no amount of
imbecile rago in Honolulu can affect
in tho slightest dogroo. An article
from tho Springfield Republican, ono
of tho ablest journals in tho United
States, in this issuo is in point.
A correspondent revives tho vital
subjoct of a ballot to settle tho ques
tion of noses for and against annexa
tion. It would bo only just as well
as politic to havo tho question put,
as suggosted by tho lottor writor,
with equal rights coupled with an
nexation if not on a solo ballot, at
least on a separate ono. Should the
result bo a majority against annexa
tion, thon the wholo further respon
sibility would rest upon tho United
States, tho question for that nation
remaining then being conquest pure
and simple or tho establishment of
a satisfactory independent govern
ment horo under oithor tho original
tripartite recognition or the exclu
sive tutelage of tho Unitod States.
THE CROWN LANDS.
Make hasto slowly would bo good
advico for tho Provisional Govern
ment to take in response to tho
movement that has sprung up for a
partition of tho Crown lauds. In
tho first plaeo, it is not certain that
any disposition this Government
makes of the lands has tho assurance
of finality, but on this point there is
need for no more than tho sugges
tion as a warning to intending set
tlors regarding their titles. Apart
from any consideration of fiuality,
however, the subjoct has a far-reaching
importance that forbids an off
hand partition of tho lauds. To
portion them out right and loft to
all-comers, without suitable precau
tions, would moan tho comparatively
early acquisition of the lands by
mortgage brokers. Tho lands if ap
portioned to small farmers by any
authority should be made absolutely
inalienable for a term long enoutrh
to prevent improvident or unfortu
nate holders letting them fall into
the hands of the land-grabbing
fraternity. Any homesteads that
become abandonod or forfoited must
bo made to rovert to the Govern
ment for disposition only to now
and bona-fido settlors.
Amidst all the dishonest writing
against elements of tho lately sus
pended regime, nothing has exceed
ed in moral obliquity tho tirades
against the royal holdings of laud.
It is only very recently that the
word, "Thus far shalt thou cpmo and
no farther," has been uttered to the
planting and stock-raising fraternity
regarding the public domain, and
tho policy mado a national ono by
all parties of devoting all tho avail
able lands to homostoad settlement.
In some cases this policy has proved
successful, in others for various rea
sons tho contrary. But while this
policy was yet in its infancy wo find
Queen Liliuokalani adopting a
scheme of settlement on Crown
lands suitable for tho purpose moro
liberal in some respects, and cortain
ly safer for settlors, than the Gov
ernment's land policy. Sho devoted
a largo tract of the best and most
favorably situated lands on Hawaii
to small lease holders for a long
term, giving them tho land free of
rent for throe years or until tho
plantings had time to mature. A
condition was that a certain propor
tion of tho land must bo planted in
coffee, thus ensuring a largo addi
tion at tho outset to that rising and
promising new industry. Expecta
tions regarding the coffeo industry,
it is true, may not bo realized; but
with largo enterprises in that line
being started on the right and loft,
upon the strong recommendation of
exports, it cannot bo doomed unwise
to havo bound tho settlers to one
leading product, rathor than havo
them undertake haphazard experi
mentation, as the fancy seized them,
with all sorts of soil productions.
Common honesty would havo dic
tated a telling of tho wholo truth
by those scribes who havo railed at
tho possession of largo areas of
lands by tho Crown as an undiluted,
griovous public wrong. It may in
deed bo deomod fortunato for tho
country, whatever its destiny may
be, that tho groat division of lands
by Kamoliainolia III, has restdted in
preserving through all those yearn
ho much valuable torritory from tho
rapacity of tho miscellaneous guild
of land sharks. What of thu hon
esty, it may bo asked further, of dia
tribes against thu land conserved by
the Crown, without tho accompani
ment of a word about Ihouo other
enormous tracts of land, hold, to an
immense oxlont, uselessly so far as
tho public wolfaro is coucornod, by
uucrownod autocrats? Contrasts
between tho overthrown rogimo and
tho more promise of tho ono nt
tomptod to bo initiated would have
moro inlluonco if they contained tho
osseutial elements of fairness and
voracity in their formulation. Thus
far thoro has not boon a plea ad
vanced in justification of tho violent
change of institutions, which has not
crackled to dust under tho cold
blast of honest investigation. This
land question is only ono fair exam
ple. Why Not Take a VoteP
Of the volumes thus far written
on tho Hawaiian question, there has
scarce yet appeared a suggestion as
to any method of reducing to a oor
tainty some vital facts, upon tho ox
istenco or uon-oxistonco of which
tho political future of tho Islands
seems now to depend. Tho main
fact disputed, according to tho
politics of thoso discussing it ro
iates to the actual wishes of tho
majority of tho Hawaiian electorate
on tho question of annexation. Uu
fortunately for tho cause of annexa
tion, tho direction of the movement
fell into tho hands of a cabal of
jackal politicians whoso policy was to
steal tho political rights of tho maj
ority by misrepresentation abroad.
Tho doctrine "down with tho kana
ka" was trumpeted by tho Commis
sioners up and down every highway,
and by-way throughout tho Unitod
States. Certain of tho loading mem
bers of tho ruling Council openly
and persistently gave it out at homo
that "tho kanaka must go," as a poli
tical fact or, in his uativo laml.
Thanks to the "xVmoricanism" of
Americans at homo, tho proposed
tyranny of so-called "Americans"
abroad entirely destroyed their outer
prise, as to detail: for tho advocates
of true Ameiican principles in the
U. S. refused to have anything to do
with a scheme which gavo everything
to tho classes, and throttled tho
masses without due investigation.
Now, a Commission of tho U. S.
Government is on tho spot to learn
the truth, on which to baso future
action. The missionary ollico-hold-ors
(voted into otlice of course, by
themselves) aro using every offort to
sustain their allegation to tho U. S.
authorities, that tho majority of tho
people favor their cause. They aro
now crawling on thoir hands and
knees to tho "kanaka," who so short
a time a back they declared "must
go;" They aro writing private let
ters and sondiug emissaries to thorn
imploring them to sign tho annexa
tion club rolls, on tho suspicious
promise that they aro in favor of
equal civil rights: and they havo
made bold to claim, right under tho
noso of tho investigating Commis
sioner, that they havo a majority of
voters on their rolls, including a
very large number of natives. It is
claimed on tho other hand that
what nativo signatures havo been so
secured have boon secured by mis
representation, tho boycott, and un
due and illegal prossuro: that al
though the Hawaiian Commission
ers and the secret cabal of eighteen
self-elected men who compose the
star-chamber havo swallowed thoir
vomit, they are insincere: that al
though they now pretend to favor
equal rights to their dear Hawaiian
friends, yet thoy refuse to s.iy so of
ficially thus leaving a loophole to
crawl out of their promises as thoy
did in the sell-out by tho same
family compact in 1887: and finally
that it is too far from tho laws of
average, to bo a simple coincidence,
that tho great majority of nativo
signers whom thoy claim as sup
porters, aro under some form of
"bread-and-butter" pressure of tho
missionary shop-keepers, usurers
and money changers.
.Now, to arrive at tho tact, why
not take a voto? "Lot petitions bo
signed by tho peoplo generally, re
gardless of partj, and lot tho details
bo sufficiently sot forth iu tho bal
lots so as to settle not only tho bald
proposition of annexation (so far as
it can bo settled at this end of tho
lino) but tho question of equal civil
rights tile principle, under annexa
tion (if the voto be allirmativo)
whether it is to bo "ono man, ono
voto," icgardloss of the size of his
bundle of sugar-stock certificates, or
tho number of mortgages ho annual
ly forecloses. This will test tho
fact: if tho family compact sign, this
will also show thoir good faith. Lot
tho petition bo to tho U.S. Commis
sioner, or to tho Government (as tho
amenities of the occasion suggest)
nnd thoso who flaunt thoir blue
badges and boast thoir "American
ism" demonstrate tho fact by con
forming to tho excellent American
idea of rule by tho majority.

Tho careful reader of the editorial
columns of tho P. G. Advertiser is at
a loss to know just what tho editor
is driving at. Tho annexationist
will think ho is getting in a lick on
the royalist and tho royalist will
just as correctly surmise that his
aim isat tliooveningTwinkler. "Tho
man on tho fence" will no doubt
conclude that the articles wero writ
ton by one of tho victims iu tho
wagonotto disaster noticed in the
same paper, and would advise tho
editor to tako something for it.
If dirt has been thrown, from
which side did it come? If tho Am
erican Commissioner has experi
enced extreme cases of nausea, was
it from reading royalist articles or
thoso from tho trenchent pens of
tho annexationist writers? Has it
over been necessary for Mr. Blount
to call upon tho editors of royalist
papers to request them to make
such corrections in thoir published
articles as in tho case of "unhinder
ed interviews?" This mud-throwing
reminds mo of a story which, with a
slight change, will apply here. Some
years ago Col. Bobort Ingorsoll, with
a desire to chaff' an old darkey apple
seller iu Washington, said: "Well,
Mammy, do you boliovo that all peo
plo aro mado from dust?"
"But what happens in rainy wea
ther when there is nothing but
mud, what is made then?"
"Annexationists, I reckon."
To get at tho character of tho
men who write such beastly articles
one has only to read tho Boviow of
Iiovicws in which Sereno Bishop ex
tols the Queen, anil compare that
article with some of his moro recent
Similia Similiih's Curantur.

a bigamist and ombozzlor was ox

Hereisan incident from the South
Mississippi, written in April, 1890,
just afterthe Grippe had visited that
country. " I am a farmer, one of
those who have to rise early and
work late. At the beginning of last
Winter I was on a trip to the City
of Vicksburg, Miss, .where I got well
drenched in a shower of rain. I
went home and was soon after seized
with a dry, hacking cough. This
grew worse every day, until I had
to seek relief. I consulted Dr. Dixon
who has since died, and he told me
to get a bottle of Boschee's German
Syrup. Meantime my cough grew
worse and worse and then the Grippe
came along and I caught that also
very severely. My condition then
compelled me to do something. I
got two bottles of German Syrup. I
began using them, and before taking
much of the second bottle, I was
entirely clear of the Cough that had
hung to me so long, the Grippe, and
all its bad effects. I felt tip-top and
have felt that way ever since."

One of the best moves of
the Provisional Government is
the creation of a Department
of Agriculture and appointing
such a practical man as Mr.
Marsden as Commissioner.
The horticulturist and gentle
man farmer have been yearn
ing for something to fill this
large aching void in this res
pect and their wants are now
satisfied. The grocer whose
stock of good things is mixed
with garden seed, red herring
and other brie a brae feels
safer in the seed department
of his business under the
guardianship of a commission
er of agriculture. The farmer
may feel safe in planting seed
according to the directions in
the catalogue and may be rea
sonably sure that they will re
semble the portrait on the out
side of the package. Heretofore
one could never feel sure
when they planted a package
of lima beans whether beans
or wild parsnips would be the
result. Under the influence
of a Commissioner of Agricul
ture seeds are guaranteed to
come up as represented. The
man who planted the seeds of
the ostensible pansy and car
nation only in tears to reap
the bachelors button and the
glistening foliage of the sorg
hum will now rest easy and
get rid of his insomnia. He
can now plant the seed of the
Morning Glory and the Moon
flower and have the front of
hfe house look like a florist's
advertisement in the Century
Magazine; no more danger of
a bunch of Norway oats and a
hill of corn trying to climb the
strings nailed up for non-resident
vines. The Commission
er of Agriculture will see to
these things even though he
neglect to tell you that the
ingredients for an insecticide
strong enough to rid the coun
try of the McKinley blight can
be obtained from us. Leave
Speaking of agriculture re
minds us of the Hendry Break
er about which we have writ
ten occasional thoughts. We
have sold these plows to plan
tation managers who have had
more or less difficulty with
plows until they hearkened to
the voice of the inventor and
bought the Hendry and what
they now say is the best break
er in the world. The roots
seven feet deep and stones as
close together as you find them
in a Vermont pasture have no
depressing effect upon him
now, his plow scours all right
and work comes easy. Any
man who desires to make
plowing a pleasure can do so
by using a Hendry Breaker.
The dry months are rapidly
approaching but the promised
pumping plant for Makiki re
mains in embryo. Private citi
zens feel the necessity for
water and suggest the Aer
motor as the best means of
securing it. If we were to re
commend it here people would
say we have only selfish inter
ests to serve; for that reason
we refrain from saying publicly
that it is the best windmill on
earth and that it will pump
water while other mills stand
idle, that with the tower and
wheel being galvanized you
have a sure thing against rust
and wear. There are other
good points we could tell of
and will when you come in to
inquire about them.
