NOT JUST RIGHT.
Thomas square is artistically
laid out, thero is no question, but
for a huraau oyo to realize its
beauty a balloon must bo charter
ed. Its concentric aud sinuous
walks nro iurisible from any side,
but tho plan mudt bo very pretty
ou paper. The landscape garden
or who designed it, wb.otb.or pro
fessional or amateur, evidently
did not consider the rapid growth
of foliage, which should at an
early day obscure tho nico curves
on tho ground. He certainly loft
out all tho beautiful element of
vihtus, excopting along tho four
b' siflpa lint tlm u-nlU-A nlnnre thn
Bides are not tho most pleasant
ones, because they are orposod to
dust blowing off tho streets, and
considerably to tho suu'a rays.
Usefulness and convenience aro
essential oloments in landscapo gar
dening as in arohitecture,aud honce
in parks and squares, elsewhere,
tho provision of short cuts for pas
songers is gouorally a protninont
feature Thero is no such thing
in Thomas square, but the con
trary soems to havo been studied.
It would bo very couveniont, and
pleasant too, to have straight
paths diagonally from King streot
to Berotauia streot. They would
add to the elements of beauty also
with tho vistas beneath the over
hanging and varicolored foliago
aud llowors. Lately tho trees
were thinned out in this little
park, but without improving its
appearance. The process has only
left the semblance of bites out of the
margins of tho wood, with so
much more grass for the Ghinose
gardener to ineffectually try to
keep green. Nothing was attempt
ed in tho way of making tho
square a convenient thoroughfare
for busy men coming from or go
ing to their homes. In not being
a convenience the paths aro so
much less a pleasure. Thoy could
be made conveniont without any
detraction from tho boautios of
the place, but on the contrary
rather a groat ouhauco
niont thereto. When the
Bent thinning oE foliage becomes !
necessary, tho plot should bo
pierced . with vistas, with walks
beneath, and not have unsightly
gaps hown out or tho sides. At '
presont tho plpn of' tho Bqunro is j
but a scrambling forest in minia
ture, with a inazo of walks inter
secting it that can only bo com
prehended on tho map if there is
a map of the place.
Leslio's Weekly calls on Great
Uritaiu to givo up Bermuda as a
concession to tho proposed schema
of international arbitration. It
would make tho islaud neutral
ground and says tho United
Htatt'3 would see that it was kept
iuviolalo. Ureal Britain 1h bald
ly likely to give up that outpofct,
however, whou tho prospect of au
inter-oceanic canal makes it moro
important thon over for tho guard
ing of her commerce in tho At
lantic. Under au Anglo Amori
cau alliauco Bormuda iu British
bauds would, moreover, bo about
as valuable . to the Uuited
States, while costing her noth
ing, as to Groat Britain.
As neutral territory tho island
would be more a 1110 unco to the
tho United States, in caBO of tho
sudden emergency of war with
any country but Groat Britain,
than as tho possession of that
nation uow holding it. Just the
same, Great Britaiu should much
prefer to seo tho United States
extend sovereignty over Hawaii,
than that this group should be
loft in a position making it liable
to soizuro by a third Power or
combination of Powers, for uso as
a basoof operations against oithor
British commorco or British ter
ritory, iu tho ovont of a war in

confident, were affected with tuber

Board of Health of danger of a

posures on the Coast, togethor

John Sherman is accorded

Ho is probably too wise to blun
der into brilliancy in conducting
tho Stato Department, but at the
same time strong ouough to carry
out any policy that ho may de
cide to be right. Hawaii's hope
of duo consideration by tho in
coming administration lies there
fore in a full aud fair presenta
tion of the mutual advantages to
be derived from closer relations
between the two countries.
These aro days of considerable
anxiety aud porploxity to all who
havo possessions or other intorosts
in the Republic of Hawaii, and it
is time that our citizons camo to a
mutual understanding on several
important issues. Tho prospects
for Annexation appear at presont
vague and indistinct, and' our
destiny cannot bo foretold with
certainty. Thoro are those, also,
who still foudly cling to tho .hope
of a return to tho old ordor of
things, and who cannot bo per
suaded otherwise, yet this out
look appears far moro hazy than
that of Annexation ovon to tho
most hopeful disciples of tho
Mouarchy. But, fortunatoly, in
tho midst of all this uncertainty
thero is solaco iu the faot that
