IT IS A SCHEME,
Elsowhcro uppoutH a compro
hoiiBivo ubfltrnot of Colonel Spal
ding's cablo proposals, wliioli
wrro hcraldod as "tlio first prac
tical Bohemo" proscntcd to tlio
GoTcrnmont. Tlio Govornmont
had bolter wait for n second, or
avon a tonth "prnctical" Hohcmo
beforo closing with this ono. it
is without doubt tlio moat pro
postorous of nny proposition Hint
has ovor boon proposed, in tlio
nature of public works, to any
Government of tlieso islands.
There is not n pruatical proposi
tion in it, excopting conditions
favoring tho acquisition of frosh
wealth to tho promotor from fran
chise jobbing. He has obtained
praotical information, indeed, for
which he will charge nothing. It
has probably cost him little or
nothing beyond cur faro from his
hotel in London to tho oflico of
tho greatest cable construction
company in tho world.
Colonel Spalding does not, oven
according to his own showing,
roDrosent any company in exist
ence which is prepared to con
struct and oporato tho cable. Ho
merely says he has made condi
tional arrangements for getting
the money, and hints that tho
monoy is to bo had in England.
At tho sumo time ho intends to
organize a company in tho United
States to "control" tho cablo
between San Francisco and 'Ho
nolulu, and a o inpany in Hono
lulu to "control" tho inter-island
cable. How can these companies
oxoroiso control unless thoy fur
nish the money thomsolvos ? Then
tho financial arrangements are
conditional at best. And condi
tional upon what? Anybody
could lay a cablo if ho woro to ro
coivo a gift of the Pacific Ocoan,
with all that floats on its surfaco
and swims in its depths, and a
Jones lockod wiro fonco niouud
tho whole pond. Colonel Spald
ing wants $50,000, tho interest at
five peroont on ono-quurter of the
whole cost of tho cables and tho
wording capital added. That
from this littlo country and an
exclusive privilege of landing
cables horo for twenty years bo
idos. Then ho is going to got
all ho can from tho Unitod States
in addition, but, although littlo
Hawaii is to make infinitely tho
greater sacrifices for tho enter
prise, in proportion to populution
and interests in tho cable, sho is
not offered evon a consulting voice
in the negotiations for ratos of
ttufBo. If tho United States con
tributed a subsidy proportioned
to populution with that asked
Irom Hawaii, sho would pay not
far from forty million dollars a
year to tho project. This oalou'
lulion will staud all allowances
and thon reduce Coloael Spald
ing's proposition to au absurdity.
It may bo admitted that tho
United States may bo more in
diiforeut to communication with
Hawaii, than Hawaii can be to
communication with that groat
country. Yet tho Unitod States,
exorcising as sho does a control
over theso islands, has a
greater than a mero oommoroial
interest in tho proposod oablo.
Sho possesses an additional in
terest of no small inomont in tho
cable from tho fact that sho is
rapidly assuming tho position of a
firutrato naval power. In view of
these considerations tho United
yiitUn choilhl at lim'sl ho propuCti!
lo pny a Hithftiily ot 41 76,000 n
yt'itr lo Hit nylMn. This would
lemvo $2I5,000 to bo oniihibulod
by Hawaii, both subsidies amount
ing to live porcont interest on all
the capital required.
Colonol Hp.tldlug'n scheme in
stamped with immaturity ami un
pruoticalnoss on its face, In that it
is Hubmitlod without ono inU of
intelligence as to what tlio United
States in likely to do in tho mat
ter. His request for n twouty
years' cxcluslvo privilego for land
ing cablos on thosn islands is tho
most untenable proposition of all.
it ought not to bo entertained for
ono moment. With tho develop
ment of the Oriont and tho ex
pansion of Australasian com
raorco, it is probablo that half a
dozon cablos will be demanded to
issuo from tho North American
Coast, across tho Pacific in differ
ent directions, long beforo Colonol
Spalding's monopoly would oxpiro.
Tlioso cablos would requiro way
stations in this group, which
would givo tho islands all tho
benefit of competition. Bottor do
without a oablo than pay this part
of tho price askod by Colonol
Spalding. His companies will
have ndvuntago enough, and time
to got solidly established in a
lucrative business, by being tho
first in oporation. Evon the sub
sidy, whatever it might be, should
not bo grantod for so long a term.
It should bo conditioned to coaso
when tho cables becomo self-sustaining,
as thoy doubtless would
in a few years. This Government
will hardly have to expond tho
nearly a thousand dollars a woek
for its own messages which Col
onol Spalding allows it in return
for nn equal subsidy. Tho ex
clusive privilego would seem to
be scarcoly in tho intorost of the
cable companies thomsolves. It
might shut out a oablo from tho
Australasian Colonios which
would increaso thoir own busi
ness in a manifold degree nt a
Space at this timo will not per
mit further roview of tho extraor
dinary propositions of Colonel
Spalding. But, in case the Gov
ernment ond Legislature are dis
posed to be procipitate, one moro
objection must bo stuted, and it is
not tho least one. The eighteen
months' option for concluding
tho contract, and tho three
years' option for completing
tho cable, involve tho indefinite
postponomont of cable com
munication botwoon Hawaii and
tho outsido world. Lot Colonol
Spalding bring his "conditional"
backers into competition with tho
whole world of capital, under the

is to bo stigmatized as a republic

Most people make their wills
before they die, and some of
them ate great curiosities in
their way. Among the many
curious fegc-ies made lately is
that of a Christiana man who
directs that his whole fortune
shall be expended in bicycles.
A Norwegian newspaper which
does not give itsell up to the
comic element relates that a
Dutch lawyer, named Nikolson,
bequeathed the whole of his
property to trustees, to be em
ployed m the purchase of bicy
cles for the use of children at
tending school, while part of
the money is to go towards
paying the teacher to train the
boys in bicycle riding.
The validity of the will has
been disputed by the sons of
the testator, who refuse to ac
knowledge it, so that it is still a
question of doubt whether the
children will reap the benefit
of the strange bequest. That
the testator was sincere enough,
and that he recognized in the
wheel untold blessings which
might have escaped the ob
servation of minds of less
acumen, the concluding portion
of the will should go to prove.
It says :-
I have always found a bi
cycle capital protection against
the importunity of those
people who persist in stopping
you in your walk to spin a long
varn in the hot sun or in the
biting east wind. Ay machine,
unlike a horse, nevershied once;

need to intrust life and limb

Now that lawyer had good
hard, solid sense and plenty of
it, in fact, a good deal more of
it than most lawyers are credit
ed with, and yet not more than
many boys and girls in Hono
lulu have, for are there not
many of the latter who are
spending their whole fortunes
in purchasing a bicycle and thev
are wise in spending their
money on something that will
give them their money's worth
