ERNMENT FOR CHINA.
There ib n lengthy article in tho
Shanghai Mercury (English) of a
late date, on tho subject, "Rep
resentative Qovornmont for
China." In tho introduction tho
Tho cxpoiionco of the West has
shown that without popular ren
resentatiou n just government is
impossible. With the exception
of Russia ami Turkey, every Eu
lopean and American State has
its national parliament. Tho re

to crush out all tendencies toward
free speech and self-government
in tho Czar's dominions, plainly

the exceptions which prove tho

frage is tho only safeguard of
Tho writor alludes to tho theo
ry that autocratic government, if
tlio sovereign is perfect in wisdom
and in virtue, would bo tho best
government; "but as a matter of
fact there are no autocratic gov
ernments." Tho mos(t absolute
monarch must rule through his
ministers, and, although ho may
bo all that is good and great, too
often ho iB misled by his min
isters. There is much force, the
author of tho article says, in tho
objection that popular ignorance
nnd depravity are au effective bar
to any decent government by tho
masses. Therefore it is that re
publican leadors have always em
phasized the importance of
. genoral education. Tho article
But, oven where tho people are
far from exhibiting an ideal con
dition, tho rule of tho masses is
still far hotter than tho rulo of the
classes; for, whore all are interest
ed, corruption is more difficult to
practice and moro easy to detect.
A Tammany tlall may llouriBli
for a few yparB, but is sure to
come to .griof. Hie objection,
that the luck of morality and
general intelligence among orien
tal peoples is a bar to self-government,
will not hold. Our own
ancestors of two hundred years
ago were not hoathon, it is truo,
but they were hardly superior to
tho average Chinaman of today in
moral character and wore fully
as ignorant. Self-government
leads to solf-improvomnnt. Equal
ly baseloBS is tho common opinion
that EaBtorn races have been so
long acoiiBtomod to oppresbion
and misgovornmont that thoy are
wanting altogether in the spirit
and Btreugth of charactor needed
for tho organization and main
tenance of popular government.
Espeoially is this criticism inap
plicable to tho Chinese, who have
many times in their history shown
tho will and tho power to resist
oppression ana to overturn a
Tho organization, in ovory'pro
viuco of China, of secret societies
with robollious designs, is cited to
show that tho spirit of independ

has had for tho past fivo years, al
though "tho ordinary Japanese is

wo may with equal confidence ex

larger empire and more imper
fect internal communications in
China as compared with Japan
aro recognized, yet tho Mercury
does not see any hopo for tho re
formation of tho Chinoso govern
ment except in tho introduction of
popular representation. " That

THE GLORIOUS FOURTH,
TRIBUNE WHEELS AND
BLUE FLAME OIL
This is the time of the year
when we naturally expect the j
eagle to scream and flap his
wings over the great and
glorious American Republic
across the water. This is all
right and a very proper pro
ceeding for an old bald-headed
rooster eagle which is one
hundred and twenty years old
and is supposed to have attain
ed years of discretion and
to know a thing or two.
An effort is being made to
get a scream or two out of the
Hawaiian eagle, but it is such
a short time since he was
hatched out that his scream
will not amount to much irf
comparison with the older
bird's, and as for flapping his
wings he can't very well do
that until they get beyond the
We have got a young eagle,
however, of our own and you
ought to hear him scream over
Ruby Dexter's victory on the;
Tribune wheel last Saturday?
Our eagle knows a thing or
two. He knows the Tribune is
the safest, best and handsomest
wheel in the city. Don't be
persuaded into buying any
wheel until you have examined
the merits of the Tribune; all
the champion races in Hawaii
have been won on this wheel,
showing conclusively that it is
Our eagle is also screaming
over the merits of the Blue
Flame Oil Stoves, for which
we are sole agents of the
Hawaiian Islands. We have
just received a fresh supply of
these economical and con
venient stoves by the Australia
and sold one yesterday while
they were being unpacked.
They are smokeless, odorless
and just the thing for this
