WEDNESDAY, MAY 2G, 1897.
Diplomatic business is only
properly confidential with those
oonduotiug it while under nego
tiation or great state reasons de
mand that it should bo so. A
large proportion of tho news of
tho world consists of what trans
pires from diplomacy. Tako for
example tho evorlasting Eastern
question. Almost daily tho press
gives full leports of the contents
of diplomatic notes botwon tho
Powers, which aro often on tho
street in print boforo tho ink is
quite dry on tho Bignaturos. In
deed, it is a legitimate part of
diplomacy itself to givo its work
ing publicity, tho greatest saga
city being required sometimos to
decide upon tho proper time for
divulgeuco. Last mouth a mom
ber of the British Cabinet con
sented to speak at a dinner given
by a London olub, on condition
that the gathering was to be re
garded as strictly private. To tho
horror of tho hosts, however, tho
statesman guest's after dinner re
marks wero reported in a news
paper uext day and telegraphed
all over the continent and
to South Africa. An investiga
tion disclosed tho fact, obtained
from the olub steward, that a
Btrango youug man had quietly
passed into the banquet room, as
if ho had a right there, and boen
seen to tako notes. It was furthor
satisfactorily cstablishod that no
member of tho club had been in
.collusion with the upparout breach
of confidence, but tho faot that tho
Minister proved in nowise annoyed
about the matter, with other toll
tale evidenco, made it clear that tho
speech was reported at tho instance
of tho Bpoakor. His remarks con
stituted a pretty stiff intima
tion of what tho Government's po
licy would bo iu cortain contin
gencies, and ho adopted tho seem
ingly informal method described
for giving other Governments in
terested in tho particular question
tho wiuk that is as good as a nod
to a blind horse. When a diplo
matic question has reached a de

finite stage, tho public in most
casos have a right to bo apprised
of tho situation. In tho caso of
tho prosent difference betweon
Japan and Hawaii, the gist of the
Japanese complaint was received
hero in Japanoso papers before
the complaint had boon presented
to the Hawaiian Government.
Perhaps this was rather previous,
and, as it was, might not have
happened only that tho mail
stoamors made much greater
speed across the ocean than the
Japanese cruiser that brought
tho documout. Bo that as it may,
it further huppened that the very
day tho Japaueso Minister com
plained, as reported in a publish
ed intorviow, of premature public
ation of tho communications in
that afternoon's papeis, newspa
pers printod in his own country
woro read in Honolulu in the
morning, which gavo tho contents
of the Japanese communication in
Bubstanco and even partly in tho
exact words. Moreover, they were
reprint reports in English papers
copied from tho Japanese verna
cular press, a fact that puts their
original divulgeuco still farthor
back. Yet they wore only ampli
fications and'extensions of reports
that had como in a mail several
weeks previously. Iu short, tho
Japanese caso was givou out to
tho press of Japan boforo the
agent bearing it to Hawaii was out
of sight of tho shores of his
AT SAN FRANCISCO.
According to tho San Francisco
Bulletin, it has leaked out in that
city that Minister Dumou's visit to
London, while ostensibly to at
tend the Queen's Jubilee, is really
for tho purpose of floating the Ha
waiian re fundi nc bonds. Iu tho
samo article it is said that the, Ha
waiian situation referring to the
Japanese claim is regarded in
San Francisco as being serious.
George W. Maofarlane of Hono
lulu, who was interviewed, said
Hawaii could not pay Japan $100,
000 at present and would not like
ly do so if she could. Inter
ference by Japau with Hawaii
would cause complications with
tho United States, and he thought
Japau was not looking for trouble
with that country.
With respect to the refunding
scheme, although nothing hus been
given out hero, there is certainly a
strong popular impression that
Minister Damon will miss no
chauce of effectuating it, either in
the United States or tho United
Kingdom. The Japanese question
will bo no help to him in that ob
ject. Yet, if ho can givo authori
tative assurance that the United
States will not see any injustice
done to Hawaii, capitalists either
of New York or London will pro
bably not be afraid to touch the
offered Hawaiian security. A pre
vailing belief hero is far astray if
Hawaii had not a prior guarantoe
from Washington that respect for
her solf-protectivo laws would be
insisted upon by the United States
in the, event of an attempt by any
other Power to break them down.
Labor Commissioner Fitzgorald
was "talkiug through his hut," if
he is correctly reported, when he
said of his coufeienco with Ha
waiian planters "It was under
stood that tho coolies now employ
ed will be sent home as fast as
their, contracts expire, aud their
places filled with Amorioans." So
far as the Japanese aro concerned
they cannot bo sent home whon
their contracts expire Even tho
Ohinoso contract laborers have
the privilego of recontracting at
tho expiration of their contracts,
as an alternative to being sent
home. But thoro is no sending
homo about it in tho oaso of Japa
noso. They may stay in tho
country as long as thoy ploaeo,
doing as thoy please within tho
laws ot this country.
