THE JAPANESE TREATY.
Tronty rights nro given ns tbo
basis ot tho claims for dninnges
Japan is prossing against tho Ha
waiian Government, tha specific
infraction of such rights being
tho rejection of some of the sub
jects of Japun who wore being
sent into theso islands by whole
sale. When tho Hawaiian Gov
ernment Bays in defense of its
notion that it but applied the gen
eral immigration laws of this
country to tho Japanese seeking
Admission, tho Japanese Govern
ment replies that thos laws are
in derogation of the treaty of
friendship betwoen the two coun
tries, and particularly of tho most
favored nation clause. All who
are interested in the controversy
will naturally, at this stage of in
formation, wish to have the treaty
speak for itself. Here is the
articlo Abut, with the exception of
provisions for concilia in each
other's countries, contains prao
ticully all tho mutual privileges
conferred by the treaty:
Article II. The subjects of each
of tho two high contracting parties,
respectively, shall have tho liberty
freely and Beourely to come with
their chips and cargoes, to all
places, ports and rivers in the ter
ritories of tho other, where trade
with otlior nations is permitted;
they may remain and resido in
any such ports and places respec
tively, and hire and occupy ports
and warehouses, and may tiade in
all kinds of produce, manufactures
and merchandise of lawful com
merce, enjoying at all times tbo
satno privileges as may have been,
or may hereaftor be granted to tho
citizi'iio or subjects of any other
nation, paying at all times such
duties and taxes as may be exaoted
from the citizens or subjects of
otlrer nations doing business or
residing within the territories of
each of the high contracting
Now.if the foregoing article gives
the Japanese plenary license of
immigration into this country,
regardless of any legislation that
may be deemed expedient in do
mestic policy, then tho elasticity
of international law is beyond
testing by any commonsenBe
gauge that may bo applied. Tho
artiolo on tho face of it, as clear
as words could make appear,
refers exclusively to trading oper
ations by tho people of either
country in the open ports, or ports
of outry, of tho other couutry. It
can be ooustrued into no broader
signification, and does not in tho
slightest contemplate general im
migration. Liberty is indeed
givon to Japaueso to leave thoir
own country, under employment
of Hawaiian subjects, in
Artiolo V. Tho Japanose Gov
ernment will place no restrictions
whatever upon tho employment
by Hawaiian subjects of Japanose
in any lawful capacity. Japanose
in tho oinploy of foroignors may
nhlnlti (Invornniont pasuporls lo
uo nlmmil, on application to tlio
CluvoMior of uiiy open port.
If (ho treaty opened tho door lo
Japauoso immigration that could
bo rcstrictcit by no Hawaiian do
moatio polioy, or governed by no
gonoral immigration laws applica
ble to all nationalities as tho
Japanese Govornmont now seems
to coutond thcro would have J
been no occasion for tho
labor couvontion ot 188b, which
provides for tho introduction of
Japaueso laborors into tho Hawai
ian Islands undor caroful safe
guards applied by both Govern
ments, subject to modihcatiou by
mutual consont as we havo Been
thorn modified by tho elision of
stipulations for tho employment,
at tho expense of the Hawaiian
Government, of Japanese physi
cians and inspectors for tho con
tract laborors of that nationality
in this country.
A few days nio there was copied
in tho Bulletin an articlo from
tho San Francisco Ghronicle.which
apoko sarcastically of "kanaka
statesmanship" as appearing in a
stipulation, alleged to be in the
treaty," that tho treaty was term
inable only by "mutual consent."
This tho Chronicle held as making
tho treaty perpetuol. It would
seora from the articlo copied be
low thatBUch is the case, but.
noither Mr. De Long, who repre
sented Hawaiian the negotiations,
nor 0. 0. Harris, tho eminont
jurist who was Minister of
Foreign Affairs at tho time, wero
Artiole VI. It is hereby agreed
that such revision of this Treaty,
on giving six months previous
notice to either of the high con
tracting parties, may bo made by
mutual agreement, as experience
shall prove necessary.

Last May letters of administra
tion on the estate of the lato John
H. Paty were granted to E. A.
Mott-Smith, as no last will and
testament of the deceased could
be found. Since then a will has
been discovered, and it nominates
Jos. O. Garter and Julia A. Paty,
wife of deceased, as the executors.
These have now filed a renunoia
tion of the office, with a petition
to admit the will to probate and
to amend the letters of adminis
tration to E. A. Mott-Smith with
the will annexed. Tho will was
executed December 3, 1885, in
presence of M. D. Monsarrat and
Francis M. Hutch, and, after
making certain bequests to de
cedent's children, devises the solo
residue to bis wife.

The holidays arc over and
the community is settling
down to business again. The
three hottest months of the
year are at hand and many
people ate thinking of discard

stoves for the summer. To all
such we can recommend the
well-known and justly popular
Blue Flame Oil Stoves, of
which we have just received a
fresh supply. We can furnish
these in three sizes now, the
new size being "a smaller and
