A SENSIBLE VETO.
Oho ot tfresidont Clevdltuid'd
InBt nets was to veto tho immigra
tion restriction bill. It was pass
ed over tho voto by a tremondous
majority iu tho House. Yet thoro
are urguineuls iu tho veto nies
sogo aguinut the measure which
hud occurred to people hero be
foro this news arrived, which are
easier voted down by a prejudiced
majority thau they are to be an
swered. Following is an example-:
I uuunot believe wo would bo
protected against these evils by
limiting immigration to those who
can read and write iu any langu
age tuonty-fivo words of our Con
stitution. In iu opiuion it is iu
iiuitelv more sofo to admit
100,000 immigrants who, though
unable to read and write,
took among us only a homo
and au opportunity to work, than
to admit ono of those unruly agi
tators and enomios of government
al control who cannot only read
and writebut delight in arousing
by inflammatory speech tho illit
erate and peacefully inclined to
discontent and tumult. Violonco
ami disoider do not origiuato
with illiterate laborers. They are
rather tho victims of the educated
agitators. Tho ability to read and
write, 3 required in this bill, and
of itself, affords, in. my
opinion, a misleading test of con
tented industry and supplies un
satisfactory ovidouce of desirable
citizenship, of a proper apprehen
sion of the benefits of our institu
tions. If any particular element
of our illiterate immigration is to
bo feared for other causes than
illiteracy, tho causes should bo
dealt with directly instead of
making illiteracy tho pretest of
exclusion to tho dotrimont of
otuor illiterate immigrants against
whom the real cause of complaint
cannot bo alleged.
It is yery encouraging to the
causo of closer political relations
between the United States and
Hawaii to read such expressions
as the following iu tho California
press. Wo should value the in
fluence of that State above that of
almost auy othor in the Union for
making 'the causo prosper. Tho
words aio from tho Placer Argus:
Duriug tho last two weeks wo
havn leceived copies of three
lending journals of tho Hawaiian
Republic published at Honolulu,
viz. the Rulletin, Star and Com
mercial. All three are openly iu
favor of the annexation of the
isjand republic to tho United
States. Of course it is claimed
by tho partisans of tho late queen
that the native population are not
in favor of annexation. Wo
think tho latter statomout is to bo
taken with a grain of allowance,
when every interest of the Islands
would bo subserved by coming
under tho American tlag. If a
majority of these ' people dosiro
annexation, wo cannot consistent
ly refuse thoin thoir proffer. An
nexation should long ore this have
been an accomplished fact, and
would have been except for the
deliberate determination of Ulovo
land to undo what his predeces
sor, Harrison, hod yell nigh ho
coraplihod. Certainly wo aro
justified iu taking up the matter
where Harrison loft off, if tho
same feoliug exists there, that wns
plainly shown in the spring of
Elsewhere the address of a pro
minont Amoricon forestry official
is quoted as a usaful contribution
to tho growing interest in foresta
tion in these islands. The Bur.u:
TIN would suggest that much con
cern should bo manifested horo
for the preservation and propaga
tion of tho fino Hawaiian cabinet
making woods. Thoy ought to be

An Act nl the linmlgrMloti Hoard l)c
Two writs of habeas corpus havo
been issued to the Collector Gen
eral ? of Customs, roturuublo on
Monday next, each commanding
him to produce before the Sup
reme Court a large number of
Japanese immigrants who came
by tho steamer Shinshu-maru.
Ono relates to Japanese who claim
to be iu possession of tho SoO
each requisite for their admission
to tho country. Tho other is on
behalf of Japanese who were
brought out by tho Kobe lmmi
grotiou Company to engage as
agricultural laboreis under con
tract. As to these the potition
says that tho company received
bona lido orders from four cor
porations for an aggregate of U'JO
"That said Board of Immigra
tion rejected said applications on
tho ground that they were not ac
companied by bonds whereby said
applicants obligated themselves to
import into tho Hawaiian Islands
within eighteen months from tho
date of said applications teu
white laborers to every one
hundred Asiatics called for by
said application which bond is
unauthorized by law, and is an
illegal exactiou ou tho part of the
Hoard of Immigration."
Jns. B. Castle, Collector Gener
al, by Henry E Cooper, Attorney
General ad interim, has filed a
motion to dismiss tho writ of
habeas corpus. One of thogrouuds
is that the decision of the inspect
ing officer regarding tho right of
aliens to land is final. W. II.
Cattle, J. Alfred Magoon and W.
S. Ediugs are of counsel for the
rcspoudout. Kiuuey & Kallou
are attornoys for tho petitioners.,

Butler was arrosted ou a
British ship, over., which tho
British flag was actually flying at
tho time, tho Amorican courts
llavo no jurisdiction, It is not
thought that tho courts will allow
this claim, as the warrant on
which ho was arrested was mado
on complaint of tho British con
sul, but at tho sama time tho pro
ceedings will delay extradition for
Bomo weeks. If an appeal to the
Supreme Court of tho United

bo allowed, it may bo mouths
