According to a brief dispatch,
the Australian Federal Convention
lias ndoped a satisfactory basis of
union. It evidently adhored to
what was diRtiuctly practicable,
thus avoiding tho rocks on which
some foreign commentors appre
hended n wreck of tho scheme.
Resolutions were adopted provid
ing that the powers, privileges and
territory of tho various colonies
arc to remain intact, that tho oc
clusive power of imposing and
collecting customs and excise
duties and military and naval con
trol bo vested in tho Federal Par
liament; (hat Undo intercourse be
tween the federated colonies bo
absolutely free; that tho parlia
ment which will bo established is
io cousiot of a Senate and a llouso
of Representatives; that the chiof
executivo is to consist of a Govern
or - General, appointed by the
Queen, aud that a Supremo Fed
oral Court, which will also bo tho
High Court of Appeal of tho Colo
nies be established. Tho fact that
Queensland and Went Australia
hold aloof, having sent no dele
gates to tho oouvontiou, is not a
serious block to the project,
Queensland is uo worso than un
decided on tho question, whilo
West Australia may bo said to be
only unready. When British
North American federation was
launched, with the iuauguiatiou
of tho Dominion of Canada in
18G7, there wore only four pro-
I 1 I J.'
previously organized provinces
were admitted at nn early
date, and Manitoba has sinco
been created, also tho Northwest
tonitoties. Newfoundland alono
holds out but moro for terms than
anything else. There is little
duu'ul Ulut ail uf tile Ailotluliiiil
Colonies v. ill jh lo.iily to outer
tho Southern doss Dominion at
tho btait, and oiii N..w Zealand
may not bo long in seeing her ad
vantage in joining the confedera
tion. CABLE MATTERS.
There is little doubt that Mr.
Spalding has como to Honolulu
on tho piesent occasion to seek a
renewal of his exclusive cablo
f ranohifio. The Government should
.summurily refuse to tie cablo pros
peetd up for uuother two years
-with a purely speculative project.
It should not given momout'a con
sideration to any frauchiso with
. ,v !.A ,. , .L, ffl-' " f ffa- -'
exclusive) landing privileges for
more than live years, or sufficient
time to give tho pioneer cablo a
fair start of all rivals. At tho end
of that period, if tho single cablo
has not become inadequate for tho
amount of business offering, givo
its owners a ronowal of tho fran
chiso for a similar period. And
ovou should tho prossuro of busi
ness call for an additional cable,
allow the pioneer company tho
privilegoof laying such, providing
that no other company offers a
guarantee of extraordinary advan
tages in competition. However,
boforo treating with Mr. Spalding
for a rcnowal of his franchiso on
any terms, tho Government should
be satisfiod, first, that he has a
company with capital subscribed
ready to begin operations forth
with, and, secondly, that such
company has any definite assnr
nnco that it will roceivo tho re
quired support from tho United
States. An oxclusivo franchiso to
bo used simply as a speculator's
implement oithor in Washington
or olso where will simply moan tho
tying up of cablo prospects
to tho end of tho timo givon
for inaugurating tho cable.
Thoro is a rational way for Ha
waii to go about getting cablo
communication with tho outsido
world, which apparently has
novor been seen by tho Hawaiian
Governments. The United States
and tho Hawaiian Govern
ments ought to decide bo
tweeu them precisely the kind and
degreo of encouragement they
will givo to a cablo schotno, aud
thou advertise for lenders to con
struct and operate cable communi
cations for a given period
under tho agreod eonditions.
This plan soeras to be absolutely
the only one outside of ono for
tho two Governments to havo a
cablo laid and operated ns an in
ternational work, with tho ex
penses and profits or losses divid
ed between them in proper pro
portion. Tho event of annexation
would of courso cbango this alter
native to a purely American na
tional enterprise. ltli rival pro
motors organized besieging tho
United Stoles Congress, it would
bo tho'hoight of folly for tho Ha
waiian Government to grant a
reuowul of Mr. Spalding's fran
chiso. Japan is not mentioned in
the foregoing suggestion of inter
national action, but that country
may very well be included. A
cable conference Liitwoon tho
United States, Japan aud Hawaii
would be exceedingly promioiug
or early and most satisfactory ro
sults. It would bo able to create
a cablo scheme rivaling that now
far ndvauced of au all British'
cablo in the Pacific both in com
mercial and political importanco.
Since the publication of n para
graph in tho Bulletin about the
roported loaso of Delagoa Bay to
Groat Britain, au official denial of
tho report givon in Lisbon has
ublo on different ocuabious, ono of
thorn lulely, to stand off formida
ble attacks of savagos in her
African territory. Once sho de
clined tho proffered help of tho
British forces. Portugal would
be harder up thuu thero iB rousou
to believe, befoie it becamo neces
sary to ront her splendid maritime
position in Eait Africa.
