An alliiuicn for tU'foiiHO linn

deut Kruger haB replied to Mr.
Chamberlaiu's firm dispatches of
lust March, in which tho liritieh
Colonial Secretary complainod
that tho TrauBvaal had concluded
threo treatios without tho Queen's
asEvnt, and that tho Aliens Immi
gration Exclusion Bill and tho
now proas laws wore broaohoa
of tho conrontion with Great
IJiitaiu. l'residont Kruger's reply
is vory conciliatory in tone, and
shows a desire for peace. The
President asks that the mattorB in
dispute between Great Britain and
the Transvaal shall bo submitted
' to arbitration. Unprejudiced ob
xeivers cannot help thinking that
Seciotary Chamber. aiu will re
quire to curb his impetuosity in
dealing with South Africau
affairs, or first thing he knows he
will put Great Britain glaringly
in tho wrong to the view of the
"Whou Premier Seddou of Now
Zealand was in Washington, a
London dispatch to a Sydney
paper says, he "consulted with
President McKinley and Mr.Bhor
mau, Secretary of State, as to the
proposed annexation of Hawaii by
the United States. The President
was in favor of annexation, but
tho proposal was opposed by Mr.
Sherman." This is important in
formation, coming from a high
outside authority, for the conaid

persist in saying that President
MeKinlny is not sincere in pre

tho spirit of tho regulations.
Taking a largo view of the matter,
would it not have been best not to
have imposed so hard upon the
simple and ignorant people,
aftor they had been to the expense
of nolliug out their houses and
lands, and breaking up their
families in Japan, to bo rejected

result of (hr 1'iw'i of Japuii, rd ax
to piovido against tho sending of

regulations ought to be approved
of by tho CJovornment of this

uudniHtaiid that any ilUtliir.tion
could bo made between .lnmuiw
who had resided in this country
and those who had not. He deals
with the Hawaiian policy of mu
ponding immigration at pleasure

auspices of privato parlies, claim

alterations of tho treaty.

Tho next communication is from
Count Okitiun, Minister of L'or
oigu AfTairB of Japan, dated at
Tokio on April 111 and handed in
by Miuistor Shimamura on May
11. It recites the facts of tho
return of tho steamer Shiushiu
Maru with rejected emigrants on
April 11. The Cabinet had given
consideration to all tho questions
involved in tho mattor. Though
inlluonced by a friondly dosiro to
accord duo woigut to ovory ex
tenuating circumstauco, tho Gov
ernment was driven to tho conclu
sion that this Govorumeut's action
was in derogation of conventional
rights of Jnpauoso subjects, direct
ly uudor tho treaty of 1871 and
indirectly uudor tho most favorod
nation clause in that treaty.
Minister Cooper hero called
attention to the fact that he had
said nothing about treaty rights
Count Okuma spt-cified where
the rights in question had boon
1. Japanese subjects had abso
lutely tho aamo rights as Hawaiian
iu doiug busiuess at the ports of
2. Japanese have the right to
travel, trade and exercise any in
dustry or profession in all parts
of Hawaii this Imbed on tho
most fa voted nation clause of tho
treaty, which the Hawaiian Gov
ernment, Mr. Cooper remarks,
claims to have only a limited ap
3. Japanese subjects nro enti
tled to complete and constant pro
tection from tho Hawaiian Gov
ernment for their persons and
property as well as in regard to
their civil rights.
1 They are entitled to freo
access to tho courts of Hawaii iu
pursuit or defense of their rights.
5. They are at liberty under
auy and all circumstances to
ohooso and employ legal counsel.
In disregard of all those rights
4.G0 Japuuese subjects, after Loiug
confined for a cousiderublo period
ashore, and without being allowed
access to any court, and without
beincr normitted iu the ourly
stages of tho caso to see and tako
counsel with tho reprcscnta
tives of thoir Government,
woro ignoraiiiiously expelled
from the country. It is not sug
gested that under any circum
stances similar treatment would
bo msted out to Hawaiian citizens.
Such action was based ou the
claim that tho persons wore aliens
outside tho limits of Hawaiian
Tho Japaneso Government is
convinced that tho Hawaiian laws
of 1891 and 1895 relating to immi
gration, if correctly interpreted by
tho Hawaiian Govornmont, is iu
contravention of existing treatios.
It is admitted thut tho regula
tion of immigration is a proper
exorciso of polico power, whose
reasonable exercise would provoke
no romoustrauce from Japau. Iu
present case tha laws are a rever
sal of existing precedents, being
.ubilrarily and capriciously on
forced. Tho extrajudicial pro
ceedings of tho Hawaiinu author
ities wore not couclusivo and tho
refusal to tako jurisdiction by the
court appealed to was a denial of
Tho conclusion is that tho Jap
aneso Government maintains that
the Hawaiian Government shall
recogni.u tho principle of iudom
nificatiou, and that the aamo cause
of complaint will not occur again.
Particulars respecting claims

Mr C'onppr remarked that no
letter specifying claims has yet
Othor communications have to
bo deferred in mention for tho
present, the two latest ones being I
all for which timo is leu.
Minister Cooper ou Juno 28
addressed a letter to Milliliter
Sliimamiira, iu substuiico as fol
lows: On the subject of tho corres

Another letter from Tokio uu
dor dato of Juno 12 practicaily
re opens the caio from tho begin
ning. It goes over the wholo
ground, especially of treaty con
struction. fulf 20, iSgy.
"In time of peace prepare
for war" is an excellent adage,
and one which the United
States evidently believed in
when the new navy was built.
We in Hawaii have especial
reason to be thankful that in
times of peace such a magni
ficent specimen of marine ar
chitecture as the battleship
Oregon was made leady for
such emergencies as the pres
ent, and should take the lesson
to heart, not alone in national
affairs but in those of the
household. Suppose the Japa
nese fleet should blockade Ho
nolulu, for instance, we should
soon find ourselves run
ning short of lots of little
household necessaries other

Among them may be enumer
