MONDAY, MARCH 15, 1897.
Evidently thorn is need of giv
ing tlio Jnpnucso laboring classes
in this country boiiio wholosonio
nud nurturing lessons in tho law of
riot nud unlawful nBBombly. Agi
tators who oucourago tbom in im
pudent interferences with tho ad
ministration of our laws especially
should hive tho strict aud sharp
attention of the authorities. The
other day when tho Alien Act, a
law as plain as a pikestaff, was put
in operation with logard to a ship
load of Japanese immigrants, and
tho matter was referred to thn
courts by tho3o who challenged
the way the law whb applied, a
"mass meeting" of Japanese- who
had not a particle of interest in
the matter was called to ''con
sider" tho action of tho authorities.
All who had anything to do with
convening that meeting should
havo been promptly arrested and
put through u course of sprouts.
That meeting was just as disord
erly in its truo nature as would
havo been tho assembling of a
mob of Europeans to "consider"
an at rest for any crimo or misdo
moatior in tho Penal Codo. Now,
we hao tho Maui riot on hand,
ivlinr ,'!00 Japanese demand the
loleaso of a parcel of their couu
tiyuien charged with murdfir, on
tho ground that tho ontiro mob
were equally guilty of the crimo
charged with thoso arrested.
Tho least that should bo dono
with all this ciowdisto havo thorn
peiemptorily shipped out of tho
country. This Government ought
to ask the Govornment of Japan
as a friendly act to rnako procla
mation through its roprosontative
Lore, warning tho Japanese in
this country that thoy must abide
by tho laws, avoid all show of in
torfeieuco with their execution
aud, in cases of grievances, rofer
their troubles to thoir national re
presentative instead of parading
in forco to intimidate either thoir
employers or tho public authori
ties. Deportation of all who vio
lated these conditions should bo
' the penalty. If tho Japaneeo Gov
ernment should refuse ho reason
able a request, then lot ILtwuii
take tho bull by tho horns and
give uotico of termination of all
treaty relations between the two
ONE THING NEEDED.
An English hotel paper lately
advocated tho providing of good
hotel accommodation in outlying
portions of tho British possessions.
It stated that tho monoyod classes
were becoming more aud more
advoutnrous and disposed to look
farthor afield than ovor for
pleasant places in which to spond
a few months.Thoroforo it thought
thut the colonies should see that
adequate provision was made by
them in respect to hotol nud
boarding house accommodation.
This is a matter in which there is
room for tho display of entorpriso
in those islands. While thero are
tolerably good hotols hero for
transient visitors and travelers
staying a few hours, tho accom
modation and comforts provided
are not adequate for attracting
wealthy paoplo who otherwise
would come horo to got the bono
fits of our clinmto mouths at a
time. Tho groat seasido hotol of
Uonolulu is yot to ho provided.
It should havo spacious and
, pleasant recreation grounds about
it; largo rooms and suites of
rooms; a cuisino capable of sup
plying the very best of faro at all
times, and suited to tho varied
nppetitds aud whims of bpth gour
mands and delicate people. Ar
rangements for boating, canoeing,
Hiirf-ridiug and bathing should bn
ainpl and Kept in good order.
Carriage of wirious kinds should
bo always on call, and guides for
rough country riding, tramping
and limiting available. For tho
most profitable kind of tourist
travel, aud a Btoady run of it,
Uonolulu should havo a hotol of
tho kind horo described in rough
outline The finest imitation of a
motropolitau hotol will not till tho
bill. It must bo a country and a
seasido hotol, with all tho city
comforts of a traveler's rest added.
Until this essential is provided
wo may send tons of doscriptivo
matter abroad, but tourist travel
as an Horn of any considerable
profit will not bo ours to entor-taiu.
WHAT A FLOP I
For four years the Advertiser
predicted that tho incoming of a
Republican administration at
Washington would nt onco result
in tho annexation of Hawaii. Now
that tho conditional event has
boon realized, tho samo paper de
clares its opinion that tho conting
ent evont is indefinitely postpon
ed. It has no evidence whatever
upon tho question, further than
"poisons" in Washington, "who
arc quiet, but kooli, lookers on
without personal intoiests in thoso
matters." How extraordinary that
indifferent spectators, as tho de
scribed, should have takon tho
trouble to inform anybody in Ho
nolulu of a matter so importunt to
nil who live in this country !
Stranger still that iufowuation
from so unauthoritative a source
should bo so eagerly accopted, and
purveyed to foes as well as friends
of tho cause, by a journal that has
all along boasted itself tho primo
champion of annexation 1 As a
matter of fact, tho Advertiser has
had no "information" of th6 kind
stated from Washington regard
ing tho prospects of annexation
under MoKinley's regime. All
the arguments it dishes up as
newly mintod reasons why tho
Hawaiian question will bo treated
with indifference such as tho
preponderating matter ofcurreii-!
cy, the evttu balance of parties in
tho union, the boot sugar activity,
etc. wore uot unforeseen nor, the
Bulletin thinks, unprovided
against by Hawaii's repiesonta
tives at Washington. Whon tho
latest mail advices left that capi
tal, all inloiet was centoted in tho
clnsiiiLr work of Coiutonm. in thn
Arbitration treaty, various appro
priation bills, etc., together with
speculation as to tho extra
session, Mr. McKinloy's earliest
executive acts, Iub inaugural ad
dress, and bo forth. Tho
latest telegraphic nows was
all taken up with tho closing of
Congress, tho inauguration of the
Presidont, tho composition of hia
Cabinet and discussions of tho
nature of tho tariff revision for
which tho extra sossion was call
ed. Today Congress is assembled
for that special work and until
now it can only have boon guess
work as to what Presidont
MoKiuley'B policy iu detail,
or tho tone and tempor of Congress l
on any important manor will be.
What is kuown regarding annexa
tion is that the Republican party
platform, on which McKinloy was
elected, declared for perpetual
American control of tho Hawaiian
Islauds, and that many of tho
ablest Senators and Representa
tives in both great parties are in
favor of making that control no
thing less than the protecting folds
of tho American flag ovor this
country. American statesmen
doubtless realize that tho degree
of control hitherto maintained
ovor tho Islands has had a price
attached in tho form of com
mercial privileges exceptionally
favorable to Hawaii. Thoy
know just as well that nothing
less will under international law
and equity pronorvo such control
to their Nation. Aud the more
thoughtful of them must nlso be
convinced that siuco tho existing
rotations wore established more
than a score of yoarB ago being
mado nioro emphatic by fresh
stipulations in tho meantinio the
Hawaiian lslniids hnvo dovoloped
in population aud prosperity, and
their position as a point of vantage
for commerce and for strategy of
war lias become moro patout to
tho world thau over, until now
their iuiportaueo from proiimity
to tho United States, aud from
lying on tho main tracks of com
morco across tho Pacific, is so
gieat that mero trading conces
sions are inadequate as a leturn
for the privilege to any ono
nation of dominating their rola-
tious with all the world. It is
for these reasons that tho Bulle
tin believes that annexation pioa- i
pects two made btightoi tho moro
thoy aio Btirred up in Washing
ton, and that tho advice of tho
Advortisor, virtually, to declare j
the jig up and make an end of all
, the means for attaining tho j
great object, is simple tiea
chery, unconcealed by tho veil
of "pessimism" thrown ovor it by '
that journal. Tho Advertiser's pro
nuueiamento has, in short, arous
ed not only indignation among all
whom it lias claimed as us pecu-
liar constituency, but no Miiall de-1
greo or suspicion no 10 na motive
ou tho part of those in a position
to know tho maiuspiiug of that
journal's abounding vagaries.
