FRIDAY, .TUNE 2G, 189G.
All attempt is being in ado to
get up an agitation for having nil
nlions who iujoy tho privileges
of citizenship to naturalize
nd citizens o tho Republic
o Hawaii. If the intention
is to exercise compulsion
in tho matter, the attempt is as
icllo as a painted ship upon a
painted ocean. Bocauso nothing
of the kind can bo effected under
tho most favorable circumstances
before the year 1900. Few who
now onjoy tho pleasant anomaly,
of dual citizenship but will
want ho .intervening time
to consider tho question
of discarding thoir native
citizenship or allegiance While
thoy are considering tho question
they will not bo disposed to exert
themselves in promoting an
agitation for coercing thom
sehus and others in tho tnat
teK To mako tho foregoing pro
positions clear, it is to bo remem
bered that persons not oKclusively
citizens of Hawaii enjoying tho
rights of citizens have that privi
lege Becured by the Constitution,
and the Constitution can only
be nltored or amended by two suc
ce'sivo Legislatures. A majority
of members favorable to any
chaugo would have to bo returned
at ono gonoral election, and two
thirds 'at tho succeeding ono to
Hcouro tho final passago of tho
mensure. It is very doubtful if
any paity will have tho courogont
tho tirht election to put a compul
sory naturalization plank in its
platform, aud unless tho question
be made a clear issue at tho polls
tho Legislature could not legiti
mately act in tho matter. Com
pulsory naturalization may there
fore be safely sot in tho romoto
futtiro of practical politics.
"Voluntary naturalization is quite
another question, and if that is
what is sought tho agitators
should be welcome to all tho od
lieronts thoy may' gain. There
oro two classes of aliens who are
accorded all the privileges of citi
zens by tho Constitution. Ono
consists of persons who within
six months of the promulgation
of tho Constitution proved that
thoy had aided in tho formation
of tho Provisional Govornment
and had since supported it, and
took an oatli to support tho Con
stitution and the laws so long as
thoy should remain domiciled in
tho Republic. Tho other class
consists of those who havo been
granted special letters of deniza
tion conferring all of tho rights
of cilizouship including tho right
to vote. Those letters are grant
ed only to persons eligible to be
come naturalized, oxcopting,
among other things, that they aro
not required to abjure allogianco
to tho governments of thoir native
lands, nor to take an oath of allo
gianco to tho Republio of Hawaii.
This is tho most liberal provision
in tho Constitution, and tho Re
public has advantaged by it.
Both classes in question havo to
toko tho oath to support tho Con
stitution, but it is not prescribed
in tho case of tho first class, as in
that of tho other, that ovory por
son securing tho privileges "shall
thoreupon bo subject to all of tho
duties and obligations of a citi-
Thero aro conditions in tho
case which mako it scorn inoppor
tune to raiso tho question of na
turalization of onf ranchiscd aliens
at this juncture. Evoryono of
thorn is bound by oath to support
tho constitutional policy of an
nexation to tho United States.
For thoso of thorn who aro Ame
ricans to naturalizo now would bo
to swear off United States and
swear on Hawaii, only to swear
off Hawaii and swoar on United
States whn annexation shall have
boon consummated. In tho
caso of others than Americans
thero would havo to bo tho oxpo
riouco of wearing threo separate
allegiances within whatover period
it takes to gain annexation. Tho
only argument heard in favor of
naturalization is that it would
impart a patriotic valuo to tho
status bf aliou supporters of tho
Republic. This is simply n vain
notion. If thero is anything cal
culated to omasculato patriotism
it would bo tho estimation as a
light thing of tho process of
sloughing off ono's nationality un
der tho influonce of every broezo
of expediency and every wave of
promiso in personal or political
Now Zealand, which is general
ly recognized as ono of tho finest
countries in tho world, has just
had its quinquennial census
taken. Its European population
is 703,000 exclusivo of Chatham
Islands, as compared with G2G,G58
in 1891, an incroaso of 7G,312 or
twelve per cent. Tho district of
Auckland has 153,GJ3 population,
an increase of 20,18-t in fivo years;
and "Wellington 121,753, an in
crease of 24,029. Tho Legislature
meets in tho city of Wellington, but
tho Governor lives in Auckland
when the Legislature ib not in ses
sion. Tho groator ratio of increaso
shown by tho district of Welling
ton over that of Auckland is ow
ing to tho Ip'T'o amount of now
settlement which has taken place
in tho formor, and to tho increase
in the city itself, which has bo
como a commercial contro and
distributing point. Hawaiians
probably take more interest in tho
welfare of Now Zealmid now,
sinco tho recont visit of two of our
wiBO men to that country to seek
information at tho feot of its states
men. Something for certain sections
of tho "Antis" to ponder over will
be found in an artiolo from tho
London Telegraph olsowhero.

Over the purple profile of

cent gleam of the variegated
after glow suffuses the west
ern sky. A soft breeze blows
over the town, rustling the
foliage embowering thousands
of verandas. Marsden's bats
go forth in quest of beetles,
their uncanny wings fanning
the whiskers of the "free and
independent," as they sit en

and meditating on the Regis

What a pretty introduction
to a novel could be made out
of a Honolulu evening 1 The
picture is incomplete, how
ever, without ringing in a hand
some parlor lamp. We have
your choice of many varieties
of hanging lamps in the most
artistic styles silver, bamboo,
black iron, porcelain, etc., with
elegant shades. If it's "light
on the subject" you want, you
may just as well have it in
style. The prices will not be
in your way, you cannot get
lower for equal value elsewhere.
Don't bother any more with
that wornout lamp, but treat
your household to a "thing
of beauty" that will shed a
nightly glory over your do
mestic happiness and pleasures.
Some people may have tried
to convince you that the mon
archy of the oil stove has been
abrogated in favor of other in
ventions.. Don't give any
countenance to such a notion.
The oil stove has kept right
ahead with the march of pro
gress, until its improvement
has culminated in the Blue
Flame Oil Stove that we sell.
If we have told any of you
that our stock was exhausted
and would not be replenished
for some little time, we must
take it back as we do now
gladly. The Monowai agree
ably surprised us with a Iresh
lot, and they are now opened
out. None who saw the ex
periments in cookery perform
ed on this stove in our store
recently will need to be in
formed of its superior merits.
Any who did not have that op
portunity are welcome to en
joy satisfactory demonstrations
of the stove's qualities on ap
plication. One thing about us
is that we never try to sell
goods on the chance that they
may give satisfaction. We
want our customers to be thor
oughly convinced that they are
getting value for their money
before they part with it. With
the full consciousness that our
business reputation is at stake,
in regard to this as well as to
other standard articles that we
advertise, we unhesitatingly re
commend to you the Blue
Flame Oil Stove.
