TELL THE TRUTH AND
SHAME THE DEVIL.
Disregard of historical vority
iu discussing cttrrout affairs, ns
thoBui.liETlK lias often maintained,
dooB not do tho Roimblic any
good uor lend to nromoto its car
tliunl policy. Wheu, for instance,
it is stated with sorao flourish of
diction that "the now order" has
induced etra.mhuary interebt iu
tho question of having other than
Asiatic labor iu our chief indus
try, a great injustice is done both
to tho sugar planting fra
ternity, that has dono so
much in tho past twenty years to
make tho country prosperous, and
to the people at largo whose poli
tics for ton years past at least
eutside of revolutionary matters
has turned upon that very ques
tion. Tho introduction of immi
gration from almost every uatiou
und kindred uudor tho suu, other
than tho Chinese and Japanese,
has been mooted year by year for a
decade and a half,auduot only taken
into deliberate consideration by
tho planters but, in many diverso
instances, acted upqu with vary
ing degrees of success oud fuiluro.
German peasantry, South Sea Isl
anders and, especially, Portugueso
from the Atlantic islands of that
nation, havo been brought into
the country iu shiploads, for a
period oxtemliug back as far aB
stated. Then coolie labor from
India and negro from tho
Southern States of America,
not to mention Javaueso and
other Malay tribes, wero succes
sively aud sometimes simultane
ously considered boforo tho old
order had changed. Many thous
ands of dollars weio spent by tho
planters upon quests to every part
of tho globo for substitutes for tho
Asiatic labor, of which it was ad
mitted there was au excess, espe
cially in the preponderance of
males. Not only does the violeuuo
to historical accuracy iu question
do no good to tho Republic,
but it is calculated to do great harm
to its main object, iu tho Unitod
States. It simply puts our plant
ers and people gonerally in
tho falso light of casting
about iu a panic for means of
deliverance from tho necessary
ovil of dependonco on Asiatic con
tract labor, not because we regard
it as an ovil at all but because it is
used, as an argument against not
only closer rolatious but the contin
uance of the present intimato
relations between the two conn
tries. Tho truth is that while
this motive may bo a stimulus to
the presont concern about the
composition of our labor supply,
it is not at all its origin aud has
until quito recoutly had no boar
ing whatevor upon that concern,
which for those many years has
boon ono sololy for tho main
tenance and promotion of civi
lized institutions in tho
Hawaiian Islands. To place
tho matter in its truo light
is to place the people of this coun
try in harmony with tho pooplo of
tlio Unitod States not as a facti
tious oxpediontfora present emor
jjonpy but as a living fact of many
yearn' osiBtcnco prioi to the gono
Bis of tho prosont international sit
uation. Truth is mighty and a
better weapon than misrepresenta
tion. Charles Potarsou, tho lookout
at Diamond Head, has scon the
33ulli:tin regarding a suggestion
lately mado that a lookout station
should be established at Barbor's
Point. In that connection it was
stated that steamers from tho
south and west wore frequently
sighted from tho pilots' oflico on
Pacific Mail wharf boforo thoy
wore f lom Diamond Head. Mr.
Poloroon nays tho fact is that, out
of molt than 100 ste.imon from
all directions in i.ino months, only
six wen.' first seen from tho wharf
lookout. Ho slso says that he
can seo Barbor's Point lighthouso
and several ruilos to the northwest
of it, so that thero is no necessity
for a station at that place, espo
daily as it has no elevation aud
would therefore bo a poor site for
a lookout anyway. ,lt really
dooB not appear that tho public
need be put to the expense of car
rying out the suggestion in
question. Mr. Peterson suggests
what would bo usoful; that is,
when a pilot boards any straugo
vessel, steam or sail, to havo its
name code hoisted. This would
bo a good service to merchants,
tho pross and, sometimes, tho
At last advices the Torrens
laud transfer system was under
consideration by a commitlco of
tho California legislature, with
prospects hat tho bill would bo
reported on favorably. For sorao
roason unknown to tho public,
the expectation that a moasuro of
this kind was to bo submitted to
tho Hawaiian legislature met dis
appointment. Attorney Gonoral
Smith was supposed to have mude
his trip to Now Zealand, shortly
before tho session, to investigate
that mutter and the hind laws of
tho colony in general. Ho may
report in 18U8.
Lcslio's Weekly has become
quito independent since the re
lationship between tho presiden
tial chair and its oditoiial chair
was dissolved. It handles some
of tho ancient swashbucklers in
the Senato without gloves aud ro
gaidless of party traditions, for
their inane opposition to tho Anglo-American
treaty of arbitration.
Lot thorn go on. Such conduct
will'hasteu tho day when tho poo
plo at largo will olect tho Senate.
Thero ought to bo no mystery
as to tho naturo of that Japaueso
woman's takiug off, as to whether
it was murder or suicide, although
there may bo -if murder is tho
couclusiou ob to the agent. Any
physician should bo ablo to swear,
at a more glance, if tho womau
died of cord strangulation or was
huug up after being killed other
wise. War is to bo waged on tho
sweat shop system by tho lleady
mado Tailors National Associa
tion, which is to act independent

will havo dono n grand service to
humanity and the honor of Ame
rican labor if it succeed iu having
the infamous system wiped out.

St. LouiH, Feb. 12. Tho United
States Supreme Court yesterday
granted a new trial of the suit
against tho Irou Mountain Rail
way for $5000 damages for the
dnnth of James Gauoy. The
plaintiffs placed Professor
Nipher of Washington Uni
versity on tho stand as
an export, and through him a
scientific point entirely new was
brought out. Tho popular sup
position that the boy, Jamos
Gauey, was drawn under tho
train by "suction" was disproved.
It was shown that instead of thoro
being any suction tho air currents
had a contrary effect.
