FUIDAY, MAY 21, 1897.
Qood feeling on the part of
Minister Suimamura and Captain
Kurooka, commanding tho cruiser
Naniwn, wqb shown to the officials
and the people of Honolulu iu a
most brilliant reception on
board that beautiful representative
of Japan's navy. It is safe to say
that the feeling between the two
countries will have been much
quicker restored to its normal state
of friendliness on account of the
visit of the Naniwa, with the dip
lomatic counsellor and the bright
nowspaper writers she brought,
than it could have been by
diplomatic communications at
long range. There is no
thing strange, or to have been
unexpected, in the spontaneous
outburst of dissatisfaction iu Jap
an over the first news of the re
jection of large numbers of emi
grants from that country
by this Government. Tho Barao
feeling would have been manifest
in any other country over similar
intelligence before nil the circum
stances of the case could be ex
plained or investigated. There is
good reason to believe that when
tho official and newspaper reports
of the Naniwa expedition become
publio in Japan, the authorities
and people of that country will
seo the mattor in a different light
than when they regarded it
through tho fog of sensational
complaints mnde by the roturncd
emigrants, who were not in a po
sition to understand tho workings
of Hawaiian laws which prevent
ed their admission to Hawaii.
When the whole situation is ex
plained to Japan it will bo seen
that tho immigration laws of this
country aro a protection to nil the
Japaneso who come here strictly
in accordance with tho provisions
of such laws. Those who are sent
hero as a speculative commodity,
without regard to tho regu
lations of the Board of
Immigration, must if they
succeed in running tho gauntlet of
our alien immigration statutes,
mako a living here as best they
can without tho speciul protection
given to tho humblest laborer who
is duly registered among thoso en
tering undor tho official auspices
of tho Hawaiian Government.
British residents have not ask
ed for a school or any other holi
day on the Quoou's birthday. It
would not be out of placo for tho
Government, howovor, to proclaim
a holiday on Juno 23, tho appoint
ed day for celebrating the Queen's
record reign, or Diamond Jubilee.
There is no danger of this ovent
being tho occasion for an incon
venient precedent, as all tho pro
babilities are ngaiuet its recur
rence to any nationality in a
thousand years. It is indeed a
great event in tho family of na
tiono, and all tho groat nations
will recognize it as bucu iu some
way. The Hawaiian Government,
having sont n Minister Plenipo
tentiary to Victoria's court for tho
occasion, ought not to be shy of
recognizing the colebratiou pro
posed by her subjects in this
country, who have borno their
proportionate sharo in advancing
the prosperity and supporting tho
civilization which give Hawuii a
respeotablo standing among the
Is the Board of Health sure it
knows what it is about in apply
ing the tuberculine test to cattle ?
We are told that tho test has been
borno out as accurate by post
mortem examination in every caeo
of an animal killed. What of the
animals that aro adjudged sound
after tho tost ? It is asserted to
tho Bulletin on high profes
sional authority that tins tuber
culine injection conveys into tho
animal's system a, deadly protein
that is proof against boiling in tho
food products of tho animal. If
this is a fact, then tho test is liko
tho oldtimo ordeal for witchcraft.
Tho suspected old lady was bound
hand nnd foot and thrown into
tho wnter. If sho sank sho was
innocent drowned in her inuo
cenco. If she floated sho was
guilty and taken out to be burned
at the stake. Aro wo to bo saved
from tuberculosis only to be
poisoned with protein ?
Every question has two sides,
or it would not be a quostion.
Much has been told, outside, since
the Jameson raid, about the resis
tance to progress of tho ItoorB,
and their contempt for the rights
of alien residents. Elsewhere in
this paper is given something on
the other side from a Boer offi
cial. tliicertaliillon ami it Orlnlnljr.
Tho attention of tho publio is
now fully occupied and diverted
in the consideration and discus
sion of sovernl important current
and prospectivo happenings. An
nexation, as yet uusecure, Re
ciprocity threatened; tho coming
of the Nauiwa, and her mission
after arrival; tho outcomo of tho
war between Grooco and Turkoy
and, whether or no, all Europe
will eventually become involved;
the settlement of tho quarantine
squabble aro all themes of much
conjecture and uncertainty, and
while opinions aro freely offered,
none can accurately foretoll the
outcomo of any of these matters.
Nevertheless, it is becoming moro
apparent, as ouch day passes, that

says the Washington Star. Ever
sinco the rejection of the Japan
eso immigrants by Hawaii it has
been tho fashion of thoso who op
pose political union between the
republics to declaro that the wholo
affair was but a bugaboo, design
ed by the annexationists to fright
en the United States into action.
Tho Japanese Legation iu this
city has naturally discredited the
reports and their plain inter
pretation, but the evidence is ac
cumulating to show that the dan
ger is real. It now appears that
Japan is in a ferment over tbo
action of tho Hawaiians and the
presence at Honolulu of the
cruiser Philadelphia. A war feel
ing haB been developed, tho re
jection of the immigrants being
takon as a pretext.
Japan is today imbued with a
spirit of aggressiveness that nat
urally arose out of her victory
over China and her "jingoes" aro
eager for action that will express
tho resentment of the nation at
Hawaii and even at the United
States, which is regarded us Ha
waii's sponsor. Tho Japanese
newspapers are clamorous for ac
tion. One of the native journals
insists that Japan should demand
compensation from Hawaii for tho
rejection of the immigrants. Ha
waii would naturally refuso such
an unjust demand, which would
thon, perhaps, bo euforced by a
warlike demonstration, if tho
United States did not interfe're.
The most aggressive note of all is
that uttered by a native newspaper,
which declares that the refusal
of' Hawaii to permit the
immigrants to land is but the first
step toward the affiliation of the
islauds with the United States;
aud it further says with emphasis
that Japan is opposed to such a
union and will send its warships
to Honolulu to prevent annexation
if possible. Of course it is im
possible at this distance to know
just how far such an expression
represents public opinion or
official policies. But the sum of
all the comments that have been
briefed in tho dispatches must be
taken as indicating that tho peo
ple ure excited and that the Gov
ernment will sooner or later, if it
does not now, feol the pressure for
