THURSDAY, FEB. 25, 1897.
Although in conformity to our
system of biennial sessions of tho
Legislature tho departmental re
ports o this country presented to
tho people's representatives are of
that piiod, yet the bureaus report
to the departments nud tho depart
ments to the President of tho
single year. Soiuo of the reports
aro filed away in manuscript,
but accessible to representatives of
tho press, but the more important
ones aro printed. Lately tho
BuMiKi'iN gave a comprehensive
summary of tho Attornoy Gon-
ornl's report for 189G from tho
manuscript. Now tho Miuistor of
Finance has issued his report for
last year in printed form. This
is well, for it is tho most interest
ing, as well as important, of
public documents. Some few ex
cerpts tlierefiom are hero given,
but the whole pamphlet is a mine
of. matter for a year's discussion.
Minister Damon is euabled to
iutroduoe his facts and figures in
tho following cheering terms:
"The patt year has been ono of
exceptional and increased rovonuo;
and tho expenditures from tho
appropriations havo been kept
within duo proportion for
tho period lapsed." Thoro
was cash on hand tho last
day of 1895, according to
the current' account balance sheet
for 1890, jot S22.490.30. On tho
last day of 1890 it was $93,027.20.
Receipts weie: Customs, S0C0,
895.82; Postal, $.77,488.94; Internal
Expenditures wero: Gener
al expenses, $1,051,031.33; Interest
on all loanB, $230,459,59; matured
Bouds paid, $16,100; total, $1,904,
190 92. Tho Minister says that
the current expenditures cover
evory claim that has been pre
aeuted to the Treasury during the
past year; and in addition
thereto thero has been charged
to current revenue tho sum
of $29,G39.14 for interest due the
Postal Savings Bank in 1894,
which was credited in erior to
current receipts in the yoar 1895.
He btates that tho principal
sources of revenue for tho oup
poit of the Government where
in n u increase has been
recorded are tho Customs Bureau,
tho Honolulu Water "Works, the
Postal Bureau, Taxos and Land.
Tho customs revenue shows an
inoroaso of $109,740.78 over the
Alter giving an exhibit in detail
of tho imports and oxports of tho
couutry, a trade of $22,079,791.53
. tho largest in, tho history of tho
country tho Minister .of Finauco
begins a discussion of trade rela
tions with tho United States in
theso words: "From tho foregoing
facts and fijjuros it will bo ob
served that nlmost our entire
commercial business is carried on
with tho United States. When wo
consider, too, tho largo Asiatio
population now in tho country
and that our total export and
impoit' trudo with China and
Japan only amounts to $579,553.

arguinonts of tho desiro of our
people to maintain almost exclu
sive trade rotations with the
It is n peculiar coincidence that
tho legislative buildings of Penn
sylvania and Canada should have
beon attacked by fire within a few
days of each other. The Stato
capitol at Uarrisburg was totally
destroyed, while tho Dominion
structure was damaged a quarter
of n million dollars. Both wero
extremely beautiful wot Its of
architeetuto. Although the Penn
sylvania Stato House was more
than sixty years old, it vns deter
mined, at latest accounts, to have
it replaced with a building of tho
samo style, so admired was it.
Soium interruption of the public
business of Canada will bo caused
by its fire, because pnrliumout was
summoned to assemble in a few
weeks. That tho replacing of the
ruined parts will bring ordinaiy
public improvements to a stand
still is absurd, if the pecuniary
consideration is what is meant in
a local comment made on tho
mishap. The probable destruc
tion of some plans and estimates,
etc., in tho public works depart
ment may, however, cause some
delay in different undertakings.
Federation of tho Australian
colonies is advancing toward prac
tical results. At a meeting of
Premiers in January it wus agreed
to hold elections for a federal con
vention the first week in March.
Western Australia, however, could
not get ready in time. Another
meeting wns called for Hobart on
Februaiy 2, but Promior Reid of
Now South Wnles dolayod busi
ness by staying away. Ho is de
nounced by the Australian Star of
Sydney for Ihb attitudo toward tho
movement. Thero is reason to be
lieve that, notwithstanding the
contemptuous posing of such poli
ticians, the scheme of launchiug a
groat Anglo-Saxon commonwealth
uuder tho Southern Cross will be
fore many yeais bo consummated.
United, the young lions of tho
Pacific need fear no nggression
from tho Orient or elsewhere.
Replying to arguments against
an item of $190,000 for special
mail facilities from Boston to
Now Orleans, in the Postofiice ap
propriation bill beforo the House,
Congressman Pearson, Republic
an, of North Carolina called at
tention to the fact that the bill
appropriated $80,000 for expedit
ing tho mails to tho islauds of
the Pacific. Wero not tho Demo
crats and Republicans of tho
South and oven tho Populists, he
asked, entitled to ns much con
sideration as tho rosidents of the
South Sea islands ? When the
matter was put to a voto, a motion
to strike out the item for the
Boston and New Orleans service
was lost 10 to 107. This is well,
because if that item wero struck
out the Southerners might have
jumped on the Oceanic mail item
with both feet.
When a note on Japan's reput
ed cable intentions was written
tho other day for these, columns,
tho following from tho San Fran
cisco Ohroniclo had not been sceu:
Japan is now making estimates
on the root of a ruble via Honolu
In to San Francisco. It would bo
something of a joke on American
enterprise if tho little brown men
should start tho work while Con
