TUESDAY, MAY 18, 1897.
El Barbareuo, published at
Santa Barbara, California, has an
article on tlio petition against ab
rogation of the Hnwniian treaty
from tlio Chamber o Commerce
and other organizations and indi
vidual busiuess men of San Fran
cisco. It talks of "tho sousoless
bowl of many of tbo California
newspapers, against the annexa
tion of Hawaii, and in favor of the
abrogation of tho Hawaiian reci
procity treaty." El Barbareno
fails "to see where there can be
any danger to American interests
in closest possible relations with
Hawaii. In fact, any abrogation
of tho present treaty relations
with Hawaii will open tho door
to negotiations with tho llopublic
of Hawaii for exclusive privileges
to flomo other great nation, and
yri lose tho United Statos tho
privilego of a coaling station at
Pearl harbor, a privilego given to
last only during the life of the
After quoting a passage from
tho petition El Barbarono con
cludes: "It might bo pertinent to add
that tho transference of Hawaiiau
business from California to Aus
tralia, Canada or Japan, would
seriously cripple and probably
cnuao the suspension of some of
tho very largest business concerns
in San Francisco."
Louis Saroni, president of the
Sweet Candy Company, us chair
man of a committee of San Fran
cisco merchauts and others op
posing tho abrogation of the
treaty, has ably set forth his
views in a pamphlet. He has also
in an interview given the Port
laud Tradesman dono the earns
tiling in briefer measure. It is
his contention, bucked by power
ful arguments, that the free im
portation of Hawaiian sugar, in
stead of being a meuace to the
beet sugar industry of the Pacific
Coast, is in reality favorable to
that industry. Competition in
-that part of tho American market
..for refining sugars, he gives
reasons for saying, helps greatly
to assure sugar bcot faruiors good
MR. FOSTER'S LECTURE.
We have received a copy of
Hon. John W. Foster's addreBB
on "Tho Annexation of Hawaii,"
dolivored bofoio tho National
Goographio Society at Washing
ton on March 2G. It comprises a
torso physical description aud
historical bkotch of Hawaii, with a
symposium of military and naval
opinions upon Hawaii as a strate
gic point, and concludes with
those poi'souiil opinions of tho
" The islands should bo admit
ted, not as a Stato, but as a part of
the territory of the United States,
to be organized in such manner ns
Congress in its wisdom may deter
mine. Wo havo already three
forms of territorial government
under authority of Congress in
tho district of Columbia, in the or
ganized Territories, and in Alaska.
One of those may bo applied to
Hawaii or a now ouo instituted.
Undor whatever form of govern
ment, doubtless,' tho uativo Hawai
ianB and those of American and
European origin would bo granted
tho right of suffrago undor propor
conditions; and to tho Asiatics
would bo applied tho existing pro
hibitive lawB of the Unitod Statos
as to naturalization and immigra
tion, which would lead them grad
ually to return to their own coun
tries. " I do not regard tho suggestion
of a protectorato as practicable.
We cannot assumo it without bo
coming responsible for the gov
ernment of tho islauds, and wo
should not becomo responsible for
tho government unlosa wo can ex
ercise a control in its creation aud
management. Such a system would
bring no end of complications
with foreign Powors and in do
mestic affairs. Wo must either an
nex tho islands or loavo them free
to make such othor alliance as they
may ohooso or as destiny may de
termine. " As a rule, I do not beliovo in
tho extension of our tcnitory be
yond our present ocean limits. I
think wo should dovolop within
our own domain a groat English
speaking nation, controlled by tho
principles marked out for us by
the fathers of tho Bepublio. But
it is precisely because I want to
see a great and powerful nation
much greater and mora powerful
than tho ono we now havo devel
oped on this oontinent that I hail
tho opportunity now offered of se
curing this outpost of our Pacific
frontier, and thus protecting for
ull tirao our future mighty com
merce and rapidly growing inter
ests on that coast from tho en
croachments of the great Powors
striving for ascendency in that
quarter of tho globo."
No matter what tho outcomo of
tho presont international situa
tion, or crisis it should be called,
may be, tho futuro verdict of tho
American people will bo that Mr.
Foster's viows aro those of a fore
seeing statesman. His opinion
as to methods is identical in na
ture with that put forth by the
Bulletin long Bgo, when it
argued that a special scheme of
union could be devised, and rati
fied by tho legislatures of both
countries, to suit tho peculiar con
ditions of the case.
Mr. Thurston's "Statement of
Reasons from an American Stand
point," in behalf of reciprocity
has been received in pamphlet
form. It makes 51 pages of close
print and ia a valuable compen
dium of tho history of tho rela
tions between the United States
and tho Hawaiian Islands.
Diircrtnlntlc nitel n Cerlulnly.
The attention of tho publio is
now fully occupied and diverted
in tho consideration and discus
sion of several important current
and prospective happonings. An
nexation, as yet unsecuro, Re
ciprocity threatened; tho coming
of the Naniwa, and her mission
after arrival; tho outcome of tho
war between Greece and Turkey
and, whether or no, all Europe
will eventually become involved;
the settlement of the quarantine
squabble are all themes of much
conjecture and uncertainty, and
whilo opinions are freely offered,
none can accurately foretell tho
outcome of any of those matters.
Nevertheless, it is becoming moro
apparent, as each day passes, that
Buffalo and Hoffbrau are tho
favorite brows, and it is gratify
ing that assuranca is givon that
rogular shipments of these wholo
somo and strengthening bever
ages can bo depended upon, and
that thay will, as heretofore, be
dispensed at tho Royal, Pacific
aud Cosmopolitan Saloons, and
that the interchangeable check
system is nn established fact.
