Hawaii ought to have n now
treaty with Japan. Tho states
men aud other intelligent pooplo
of Japan will see tho reasons fast
enough, if they study tho situa
tion of these islands with minds
freo from covetous ideas. This
country simply cannot assimilato
the Japanese into its civic popula
tion for tho present. Thero are
three languages now required .for
publio discussion of political
questions when the people are
called on to elect their houses of
legislation. Supposing Japanese
wero entitled to tho franchise on
exhibiting the literary ns well as
other qualifications, for a long
time to come there would bo a
majority iu thousands of that
nationality here even if no more
iinmigrato who would fail to
qualify. This overwhelming ma
jority not voting thoniselves would,
thero is no doubt, havo great in
fluence over tho comparatively
small number of their country
men who hold tho privilege of the
ballot. There would bo mass
meetings conducted in the Japa
nese language, nnd mostly con
sisting of headstrong aliens with
out votes, dictating the vote of
the Japanese electors, and
theso electors might hold
tho balance of power. Repre
sentative government in the true
sense would bo impossible under
such conditions. Apart from the
question of the franchise alto
gether, however, Hawaii might
not long be able to maintain its
presently existing institutions if
tho Jnpanose continued to pour in
at tho rnte thut has beeii seen for
tho past few years. Numbers
must tell in peaceful as well as in
warlike invasion. Slight dis
putes over questions of individu
al rightB, in isolated cases even,
might easily grow into serious
differences between tho authori
ties and the mass of the Japanese
throughout the group as a whole.
Tho recent uprising of Chinese
laborers against a license tax im
posed by tho Municipality of the
Foreign Settlements of Shanghai
furnishes an example of what
might happen in theso islands any
day even now. Many similar epi
sodes huve arisen in connootion
with the rule of European minori
ties in Oriental communities. The
conditions for such trouble in
Hawaii are quite enough develop
ed now. The ship is full to the
danger load lino. Many thought
ful minds regard it as overloaded.
Wo may not be able to jettison
any of the cargo, but wo may be
able to refuse more. This through

Official notice is being givon in
dilforont capitals that tho Gov
ernment of Sweden and Norway
purposo sending a balloon expe
dition toward tho North Pole for
exploration in the interests of
science. Tho balloon will carry
threo Swedish scientists, headed
by Professor Andrec, and an as
sistant. Should any accident bo
fall tho explorers and should thoy
arrive in any locality, having lost
the balloon, the inhabitants are
asked to givo them all possiblo
assistance. The expedition will
start from Spitsbergen about tho
first of July next. No notice has
boon issued at Honolulu, but it is
just ns likely ns anything olse
that Charlie Poterson, tho lookont
on Diamond Hoad, will bo tho
first man outside of Norway to
see the balloon.

sovornl other highly respeoted
ladies and herself to bo grossly
insulted on tho grounds of the
musoum yestordny. Tho insult
went to the extent of actual as
sault, a laborer having thrown ono

Tho attontion of tho publio is

in the consideration and discus
sion of several important current
and prospective happenings. An

of the Naniwn, and her mission
after arrival; the outcome of the
war between Greece and Turkey
and, whether or no, all Europo

conjecture and uncertainty, nnd
while opinions are freely offered,
none can accurately foretell tho
outcome of any of these matters.

apparent, as each day passes, that
