MAKING A BLUFF.
Tho woultl-bo foreign directory
makora nro lunking a liorriblo
bluff. No attempt on their part
is being rnnclo to compile- statistics
or names. They nro Bimply try
ing to got contracts for advertis
ing. If thoy enn Bitcceed in bam
boozling tho lnorclrnntB, a repe
tition of their lust incomplete
work can bo looked for. That tho
local concern will compilo a
complete and authentic
work is promised. Thoroughly
competent men, who are acquaint-,
ed in tho different districts to
which thoy have been Bent, have
been working on the other islands
for the paat wool:, and several
men have been employed in Ho
nolulu for tho hiBt ton ilnys.
The local firm is not mak
ing any wild endeavor to cor
ral the bushi03s men in any irou
ulad contracts, but is quietly and
ns quickly as possible compiling a
directory that will give a complete
list of business mon, together
with their places of business,
residences, streets and Post Oilico
addresses. Particular pains havo
beon used in tho selection of mon
to do tho compiling, thoy all being
men who earn and spend their
money in Hawaii. None of tho
proceeds of this Directory will go
to San Frnnoisco and the mer
chants will do well to consult the
local concern 'before giving con
tracts for advertisements or books.
In Bhort, patronize homo industry
in preference to giviug money to
men who will only take it to Cali
fornia to apond and laugh at tho
easy manner in which thoy havo
gulled tho Honolulu public.
AVhen Mr. Hatoh was given the
mission to Washington, it was
confidently predicted that tho an
. nexation question would soon
pass beyond tho stago whon
I'Barkis" that ia, Hawa'i enly
was "willin'." Al that the public
have heard of Mr. Hatch, how
ever, relates to his presence as a
guest at a fow "swell" social func
tions, his giving of ono or two
such himself and, now aud again,
tho intelligence that ho wns "an
interested spectator" in tho dplo
matic gallery of tho Sonato whon
Cuba or tho Monroe doctrine was
being thrashed out on the floor
below. Congress has not, by re
solution or oven by nudieuco to
set'speechoa on tho mattor, made
ono sign that Hawaiian annexa
tio'nTiT in tho remotest degreo a
question of. practical politics in
the United Statos. In tho Stato
fouvontions of tho Republican
party Hawaii has only beon
mentioned in connection with
attempts to mako cheap capital
out of tho incident of Commission
er Blount's taking down tho Am
erican flag from ono of tho Ha
waiian Government's polos. Thoro
lias not appeared, however, a
politician who duros to commit
LiiQBolt or his party to tho retriev
ing of that "disgraco" by promis
ing tho restoration of tho Stars
xnd Stripes over our scat of gov
ernment. On this side of tho wator
tho Legislature nnd the public
aro scrupulously kept in tho dark
as to any olForts on tho pnrt of tho
Government or its representatives
in Washington to "dolivor tho
goods" that aro tho cousidoration
for thoir official salaries. Tho on
ly pledge of sincority in tho mat
tor is a resolution passed by tho
Legislature which can havo no
moro effect in hastening tho pro
fessedly desired consummation,
thnn the air waves of a houso fly's
"n'inga on tho Btaysnil of tho sloani-
Bhip Australia would havo in
holping or hindering tho stoorago
way of that vessel. Moreover, as
if to proclaim a want of sincority,
the Senator who was Bolected to
introduco tho resolution was sont
to tho LogiBlaturo by mon who, in
probably Bovon caBoa out of ton,
would not today voto for him on
an annexation platform. It is,
indeed, as hard to find an out
spoken annexationist among tho
sugar planters of tho island of
Hawaii as it would bo to find a
pin in a balo of hay. Of courso
thoy will all, nearly, bo annexa
tionists again whon McKinloyism
with two conts a pound bouuty on
sugar is restored in tho United
States, but then cupidity would bo
so obviously tho motivo that their
desires would cut no more figure
in tho States than tho soutimouts
of our Oriental residents. Is it
not about timo that tho Govern
ment of Hawaii took thoo that
'established and havo maintained
it, as well ns tho whole people
over which it boars rule, into its
confideuco as to anything prac
tical it has been or is doing to
promote tho manifest dostiny of
these islands ? Has it submitted
any schomo of union to the Gov
ernment of tho United Statos, such
as to which it can confidently pro
mise tho support of the pcoplo of
It is proposed to dofor final
action on the wide tiro measure
until next session. Tho principal
argument for postponement is
that tho Legislaturo has not suffi
cient information boforo it to en
suro nu avoidance of great hard
ships to somo, especially in tho
rough country districts, who
would bo affected by tho law.
Whilo a measure of tho kind is
desirable for tho protection of
macadamized streets nnd ronds,
tho Bulletin at tho same timo
would deprecato hasty legis
lation that would have tho
result of making tho law
so unpopular as to onsuro its in
evitable repeal at next session.
Tho experiment of commissions
has, however, boon largely a fail
ure, and it would bo better, in
this caso, to givo tho promoter of
the bill timo to acquiro tho needed
information himself, ns well as to
study tho whole mattor furthor,
so that by next session ho can
present a measure in which 'very
big holes cannot bo picked. An
organization for tho promotion
of good roads wonld not bo a bad
thing to take up tho wide tiro with
othor schomos for road extension
A San Eranci'jco protectionist
organ advocates reciprocity
treaties with countries in tho
Pacific, drawing a glowing
picture of tho vast expansion of
American raaritimo enterprise
that would rosult from such a po
licy, with great incidental benefits
to tho port of San Fraucisco. As
reciprocity is a measure of free
trade in disguiso, tho advocacy of
it m a protectionist organ indi
cates a decreo of hollownoss
in that particular plank of tho
Republican party s platform.
There can bo littlo doubt that tho
results of the Hawaiian recipro
city treaty, as seen at tho port of
San Francisco, havo proved an
object lesson to all boholdors of
which tho advocacy of moro ro.
ciprocity is one of tho' fruits. Yet,
for frivolous causos and upon far
fotchod nud fallacious pretexts,
somo San Francisco journals oc
casionally howl at tho Hawaiian
treaty like dogs baying at tho
Thoro has scarcely boon an at
tempt to conceal tho motivo of tho
legislation concerning sake
namely discrimination against tho
Japaueso beverage to satisfy tho
California wine producers and in-
duco them to stay their hands
from smiting tho reciprocity trea
ty. Tho tompornuco disguiso for
tho measure is too thin. It is said
that tho natives nro not calling for
Bako now so much as when it was
novel in its flavor, but aro taking
to wino moro and moro instead of
tho Japaueso drink and thoir old
favorito gin. A correspondent in
this issuo makos somo points on
tho question which, if not too late,
ought to bo considorod. If dis
crimination against tho product of
Japan can bo proved, thoro will bo
troublo for this Government.
"Olovoland's "Way" is tho sneer
ing hoad placed by a coutompo
rary over tho nows that tho Presi

thus displays feohug over Presi
