JAPANESE OPINION ON Til It TRK ITI
Or ANNEX TIOM.
The United Ntatea Nhonld llnvft Con
united Japan Before Precipita
ting; the Scheme.
With an introductory para
graph on the probable, accuraoy
of the telegraphic news on tho
subject tho Japan Times, an offi
cially inspired newspaper of
Tokyo, diB0U8808 the Hawaiian
annexation treaty submitted to
tho United States Senate by Pres
ident MoKinloy in tho following
We are not a little perplexed as
to the reason of this manifestly
precipitate action on the part of
tho Government at Washington.
It is a significant circumstance
that this should happen just at
tho moment when a diplomatic
question of some importance is
pending between this conntiy ond
Hawaii. Has President MoKinloy
fallen into the hands of those
Hawaiian agitators who have been
unscrupulous by representing
through the press and otherwise
that Japan harbors a design upon
the islands? Has he been deceived
by these artful men into the belief
that the Hawaiian group was in
dauger of Japanese invasion? We
are reluctant to believe it possi
ble that the entirely ground
loss stories as to Japan's
territorial ambition should
have had any weight in the Wash
ington Government's decision on
a course which is hardly compati
ble with friendship toward this
country, xet the coincidence ib
significant and cannot be lost
sight of. As to the possible dan
ger of a European occupation of
the islands, it ought to be very
well known to President McKin
ley and his colleagues that both
England and Franoe are debarred
from such a course by a mutual
declaration between them. And
it is hardly imaginable that any
attempt is threatened from Russia
or Germany. Nor is the treaty
question now pending between
the Union and Hawaii of suffici
ent urgency to drive the American
Government to the decisive step
it is reported to have determined
upon. Are we then to fall back
on the assumption that the appre
hension of a danger from Japan
has been the principal cause of
all this precipitation?
Whatever may have been, the
cause, it is to be deeply regretted
that the step has been taken with
out consulting the views of Japan,
which is, next to America, most
vitally interested in the status of
the Hawaiian Islands. It is true,
what has been done is only the
signing of. a treaty, and the deci
sion of the Republican Administra
tion in order to be translated into
action has to obtain tho endorse
ment of two-thirds of the Senate.
The complexion of the Senate is
such that it is difficult to foretell
tho fate of the Annexation Treaty.
Tho question is, consequently,
still undecided, and in the absence
of fuller information, it is incum
bent upon us to be exceptionally
cautious in discussing this import
ant question. But at tho snmo
time, it cannot be denied that the
action of the American Govern
ment has been anything but con
siderate or friondly to this country.
With 25,000 of her peoplo in the
islands,a population exceeding that
of any other nationality, Japan was
certainly ontitlod to expect that
she would bo consulted in tho
ovont of anything affecting the
status of the group boing con
templated by America or any
othor country. The failure of tho
United States Government to
ontor into this obviously propor
preliminary with this country, is
all tho more- regrettable, because
Japan, so far from having any
sinister design upon Hawaii, has
throughout been actuated towards
tho littlo Republic by sentiments
of unalloyed friendship ami good
will. Had wo beeu desirous of
obtaining political control over
Hawaii, a splendid opportunity
was afforded us at the
time when the present revolution
ary Government came into exist
snee. Our neutrality on that oc
casion proves that we have no
ambition to extend our dominion
in that direction. And in our
subsequent intercourse with the
new Government, evon the bitter
est enemies of this country will be
unable to point to a single in
stance where we acted in a way
suggestivoof suspicious intentions
on our part. From every point of
view, the step taken by the Wosh
ington Oabinet is matter for the
most profound recrret.
We have no doubt that the Im
perial Government will take
prompt and firm steps to impress
upon the Amorican Government
the gravity of the course taken by
it, and to adopt whatever measures
may bo necessary to safeguard the
immense interests this country
possesses in Hawaii.

A historical event took place last
night. Could we go back to the
beginnings of Oxford or Cam
bridge, Harvard or Yale, and re
produce a program of their gra
duating exercises, what a find for
the future historian 1 How inter
esting from tho point of view of
the archaeologist! And yet last
night "the first commencement" of
the Kamehameha Girta' School
that magnificent bequest of the
honored Mrs. Pauahi Bishop to
the Hawaiian nation took place.
The public evidently appreciated
the treat in store for them, for
fully 2000 tried many unsuccess
fully to jam themselves into Kau
makapili church with its sitting
accommodation for about 800.
Never boforo since its dedication
has that church had such a Bwarm
of human beingB in its precincts.
The organ and platform worn
beautifully decorated with palms
aud other greenery and over all
spread the graduating class's
worthy motto, "Wako the
Divine Within," ombroidered in
rod on whito, and bonoath
hung the mystio figures '97,
symbolical of all that is mystori
ous null yet lovely. Work began
promptly at 8 o'clook aud tho
oponing chorus, Mendelssohn's
"In Heavenly Love Abiding,"
Bhowed at once the musicnl treat
that was in store for tho audience
from Miss C. Clymor's carefully
trained pupils. As a wellknown
professor in tho audience said,
"No bettor could bo hoard any
whoro and ovon in tho capitals of
Europe a choir of so many train
ed voices would command not
onlyahoaring but ovon applause."
Following this camo tho invoca
tion by Dr. ,Hydo, one of the
Trustees, and thou came the
reading of tho graduating
essays by tho beautiful young
young girl graduates of Hawaii's
leading fonialo college
It is in place horo to re
cord tho observation of a lady
that tho drosses, not only of tho
graduates but of tho rest of the
school, woro Bimply, to fominiuo
oyos, poems. And as they woro
mado by tho cirls themselves un
der tho supervision of their
needlework instructress, Miss J.
Denzer, the fact oughttobonotod.
Among the graduating exercises
those most enthusiastically ap
plaud od by tho intelligent
audience were. "Tho teacher and
trainer of Hawaii's little ones," by
Miss LewiMokia; "The servant of
the soul," by Miss L. Kahanu;
"A bit of clay," by Miss K. Ewa
liko; "A plea for tho clildreu," by
Miss M. Kapali; "The use of
music;" by Miss L. A.holo, and
"A practical art," br Miss J.
Lovi'll. Where all v.ere ho ox.
cellent it is invidious to solect a
single one for excellence, but pos
sibly the last named joung lady
might be said to be first among
her equals. Throughout the ex
cellent enunciation, the clear tones
and thorough elocutionary com
mand of that vast hsll filled by
such a in many spots noisy
audience was remarked by all.
To think that young girls on their
first public appearance should bo
able to fill every part of the build
ing with their voices so as to be
understood without etlort is a
triumph for Miss Pope aud her
assistants. Many men thorough
ly accustomed to public speaking
do not do half as woll.
Tho leading idea throughout
the grndnateB' essays seemed to bo
that it was time for Hawaiian
girls and women to come to tho
front aud take part in tho traiuinc
of their own race for which they
were naturally fitted. And if last
night is to be a sample they cer
tainly are. Mies' Pope and her
able and sympathetic assistants
may take their vacation with hap
py hearts, feoline that they have
not lived the past few years in
vain and that tlitir work will live
even after they ' take their last
vacation and higher praise than
this the public Twould givo if it
could but it has no highor.
