SPEECH UV LOUD 8ALIS11UUY.
At tho Lord Mayor's inaugural
banquet on tho 9th iust., Lord
Salisbury made a notable speech.
Ho intimated that tho dispute be
tween Great Britain and tho Unit
cd States over tho Venezuelan
boundary had virtually been
settled. It had boon settled on tho
terms which tho United States in
sisted upon. Tho whole question
is to bo reforroil to unrestricted
Tho Premier ventured also to
congratnlato Embassador Bayard
and the United States on tho ro
Biilt of the election, explaining
that it hardly amounted to an in
terference in tho domestic politics
I of another nation to express ml
I miration of "tho splendid pro
nouncement which the great peo
I plo has mado in bohalf of princi-
pies which lie at tho bnao of all
: I. ord Salisbury discussed the
i Eastern question at great length,
j but without making any impor
' taut disclosures savo of a negative
' nature. Ho frightened hi'- audi
ence half out of its wits by declar
ing that beforoGreatBrilain could
j iutorvcuo aluno in Turkey it
I would bo necessary to raise an
' armv by conscription. Ho would '
i not say that Englaud would not
act alone, but ho considered it
! most uuuian to do bo at tho pros-
j out time. lie did not even suggest
; that auy definite plan had boon
agreed upon for dealing
with Turkey by tho powors.
, The Sultan'B list of proposed
, reforms, which wan announced
tho previous day, ho derided and
treated almost with contenfpt. Ho
did not threaten the Sultan, as ho
did a year ago in tho samo placo,
' but ho expressed tho pious hope
that tho powors would bo able to
j turn aside Turkey from tho abyss
toward which buo was drifting.
.Lord Salisbury was omphalic
nud vigorous upon ouo point,
namely, declaring that Euglaud
will not abondou ono foot ol'torri
tory she now occupies for the
purpose of proving her bona fides
to any other power. In almost
tho eamo breath he pronounced a
fervid eulogy of Lord Cromor and
Sir H. H. Kitchener for their
eorvices in Egypt and tho Dou
gola campaign, adding: "Those
are the stamp of men who have
built up tho British Etupiro."
"Whothor ho meant it or not,
Franco will unquestionably inter
pret this as a declaration of
British intention to hold Egypt
Finally, Lord Salisbury made a
rather sharp but woak reply to
Bismarck's recent revolutions.
Ho declared that it was not true
that England's and liussia's in
terests wuro necoHPurily antagon
istic. But ho did not vonturo to
affirm that thoir rotations wero
friendly at prosout, while- ho did
say that England and tho Triplo
Alliuuco wore on good tonus. It
was, on tho whole, a moro optim
istic speech than that ho deliver
ed in the samo hall a year ngo.
Embassador Bayard of tho
Uuitod Statos in rosponeo to a
toast referred to Lord Bulleriu's
Bentiment, that tho governments
of tho world woro a mass of pal
pitating, nervous sonsations. Tho
result, Mr. Bayard Baid, of bring
ing togethor theso sonsations was
to destroy isolation, splendid or
otherwise, and to induce nations
to fool and act as ladies and gon
tlomon, with consideration for

Sound A ririi'iieiKN,
EniTOH BvLiiKTix: In response
to a request mado by you and
olhors that 1 give in writing my
views in regard to thc.cablo matter,
I respectfully submit tho follow
ing: For Mr. Spalding's sake I
wish that ho had been successful
in his effort, to got tho cablo laid.
From his standpoint I havo tho
kcone6t sympathy for him, for I
know by bitter exporionco whut it
is to bo "sidetracked" and have to
wait months ami yours for unfore
seen obstacles to bo removed.
But looking strictly to tho inter
est of this country, I am not in
favor of cxtonding tho existing
frauchiso. At the timo when the
Iran hif.o wa3 granted, just follow
ing our political troublo of. Janii-
i ary, los'o, it oviaentiy seemed
doFirablo to obtain a cabin at al
most any cost, and those who had
the mattor in hand closed tho
l controot with dispatch. However
i urgent tho necessity may havo
seemed then, conditions today
i suggest tho possibility of an
i eat lior consummation of tho
I much desired cablo if hasty
action is carefully avoided,
i As a mattor of economy
in Inland's it appears to mo that
tlio Government can do better
than to pay a subsidy of$-i0,0UU
por annum for a term of 20 years
to a private company, and grant
.an oxclusivo iruucmso lor tho
eamo timo for tho privilego each
year of transmitting messages free
to tho amount of tho annual sub
sidy. Such a subsidy for a term
of '20 years, counting compound
intercut at -1 por cent, is equal to a
total cash outlny of $1,19-1,800.00.
I understand tho cablo can bo laid
from hero to California at on act
ual cash outlay of $1,500,000.
Why, if thin country cau afford to
give away a million of dollarB
would it not bo better to encour
ago a home company, in which tho
Government should hold tho con
trol, raise tho mouoy 6ullioiont to
pay tho actual cost of laying tho
cablo from shoro to shore, und in
vito tho United States to co-opor-ato
to tho oxtont of granting a
subsidy suffioiout to keep tho
cablo in working ordor.
Make tho issuo of Capital Stock
Total bonded issue to covor
actual cost Boy Sl,500,000.
Tho Hawaiian Govornmont, in
stead of paying a subsidy of 40,
000, annually for 20 years, should
borrow $1,000,000 at -1 per cont
to bo invested in cablo bonds to
that amount. To encourogo the
investment of homo capital in tho
balanco of tho bonds at pur tho
Government should agreo to issuo
tho cablo bonds in two aerios, say,
A and B, payablo iu U. S.
gold coin in tho year 19-10. Sories
A should bo non interest bearing
for a term of 15 years from dato
of issue and interest to bo paid
thereafter at tho rato of 1 por
cent. Series B should bear in
terest at 0 por cent payablo in U.
S. gold coin soiui-aunually from
date of issuo.
Tho financial basis would1 then
stand as follows:
Total Capital stock
representing tho own
ership and control of
the proporty $ 3,000,000
Hold by Hawaiian
bearing for 15
years $ 1,000,000
Hold by Citizens of
Hawaii and their
Total annual inter
est payablo for a term
of 15 years $30,000
Tho Capital Stock to bo divided
as follows :
ment S 1,500,000
United States 1,000,000
Citizens of Hawaii... 500,000
The control of this lino must
bo in tho hands of tho two gov
ern monts interested. If Japan
and tho Australian Colonies or
England wish to run separate or
united lines and havo them touch
here loading from tho west on
couragomont should bo given
looking to favorablo rates for our
government and people, for mes
sages going west, and a largo in
crease of business for tho pro
posed Hawaiian-American lino.
Long before tho data whon the
interest ou the ono million dollars
of bonds to bo held by tho Ha
waiian Govornmont would bocomo
payable, the stock in tho Cablo
Company (subject only to an
annual interest of idU,UUU on
bonds) ought, and probably would
bo a good dividend puying stock.
This would fully compensate, all
parties concerned, for thoir enter
prise. Tho Hawaiian citizens
who put up thoir money for $500,
000 in (5 por cent, bonds, would
have also divided equally among
them $500,000 in cablo stock.
Tho U. S. Govornmont would
havo $1,000,000 of stock besides
tho privileges of cablo c'ommuni
cation with these islands, as
an offset to the not vory
heavy expense of keeping tho
lino in good working ordor, and
the Ila-raiian Government would
have free cablo communication,
own $1,000,000 of tho boiuta aud
$1,500,000 or practically the con
trol of tho stock, for $10,000, an
annual payment on its borrowed
capital for a term of 15 years only.
Whilo I mnke no protonsions
to be a cablo expert or in fact to
claim any knowledge whatovor of
that busiunsH, I modestly suggest
that something ou tho lines indi
cated abovo will bo an improve
ment on tho contract which this
country is now requested to ox
tend for a term of two years.
