EVEN IN O BULLETIN, JULY '22, ' 1897.
DANIEL LOOAN, Editor.
THURSDAY, JULY 22, 1897.
According to nowdpapor reports
from Jiipuii, Mr. Atmno, who went
to Amotion timl Kuropo boiuo
months ugo on that business, re
turned homo bearing a contract
with Mr. Huntington which pro
vides thnt thruo Bteamers of tho
Toyo Kison Kaislm shnll go on
tho Hongkong and San Francisco
route, tho steamers of tho Pacific
Mail and tho Occidental and Ori
ental companies to be reduced by
two. The account goos that Mr.
Asano, when his advances had
been rejected by Vice President
Grooker of tho P. M. Co., resorted
to ntratacen, starting a rumor that
bis company a steamers would
establish a line to San Diego, and
connecting with tho Atchison rail
way give Mr. Huntington opposi
tion on land as well as sea. Ho
went on to New York and met
Mr. Huntington, who was feeling
uneasy over the rumor just men
tioned, and who came to terms
with the Japanese schemer. Mr.
Amino then went to England
And placed orders there for
now steamtrs. In the meantimo
the P. M. directors voted to reject
Mr. Asano s proposals, lie re
turned from Engtonfl nnd "presbed
Mr. Huntington to carry out his
promise with some strong words,"
says oue report. "His words had
an effect, for Mr. Huntington re
versed the decision of his direct
ore, and finally concluded the
contrnct on the 31it of March." It
is not a bad story and if it prove
true Mr. Asano will take high
rank with the modern kings of
speculation. Japan "ill at the
same time greatly streugthen her
position in the commerce of the
In this issue will be found the
entire interview the press had
yesteiday with the Minister of
Foreign Affairs. Bather than
spoil any portion of it in the pre
vious issue by undue condensa
tion, some of the middle sections
wore deferred. It is now printed
in full, so that our readers may
have it for reference. Tho inter
view had to be closed rather ab
ruptly on account of tho arrival of
an official appoiutmout of Mr.
Coopor, but the ground had been
all covered excepting with regard
to the Japaneso interrogations
about Chinese immigration. These
wore, ho wet or, covered in an in
terviow with President Dole by
this paper ten days ago. In an
swer to a question relative to re
newod Chiueso immigration, the
Hn-raiinn Plrvmrnmnnt fiplninerl
that it was to make an equilibri
um between the Chinese and Jap
aneso and, this having been
efTocted, tho Chinese immigration
had been stopped. And, in refer
ence to an excess of Chinese in
the Louutry, over the number bore
at the date of the Japaneso con
vention which it was understood
in the correspondence negotiating
tho convention should not bo ex
ceeded tho President admit
ted a blight excess. Our
people will seo by tho sum
mary of correspondence that
tho Hawaiian Government makes
a strong defense of its notion in
rejecting ccrtaiu classes of intend
ing i in m ig units from Japan. It
is clear that there was not the
slightest intention of violating or
even straining the provisions of
the treaty of friendship, nor of
rojecting auy Japaneso who
sought admission in compliance
with the provisions of the labor
convention. On the contrary, tho
check that was put upon irregular
or, it should ovon bo said, illegal
immigration was virtually no
cossnry to prosorvo tho inlo
gtity of both the friondly
troaty nnd tho labor convention.
If either instrument lirul continued
to bo strotched to tho extent now
claimed by Japan as proper aud
tight, tho law of self-presorvatiou
would havo dictatod to Hawaii tho
necessity of denouncing both com
pacts. Perhaps tho most import

"In time of peace prepare
for war" is an excellent adage,
and one which the' United
States evidently believed in
ant development of the coutrover- ' when the new navy was built.
By is the offer of arbitration made I We ill Hawaii have espechll
by this Government. The step , reason to be thankful that ill
would appear to havo been taken times Of peace SUCll a magni-
in shoor despair of bringing tho
Japanese diplomats to discuss tho
spooifio merits of their own com
plaint. When brought to bay, as
it were, in that commonplace
arena, it is soon by tho corres
pondence that thoy could not find
holding ground of facts. There
fore, it would appear, they retired
to the high piano of treaty con
struction, whonce thoy insist on
ourroodor by tuu HiiwaiintiUovorn
mont, whobo views of treaty con
struction, based upon fact and not
mere theory, they utterly ignoro.
It was useless under these circum
stances to continue the war of
words, and it is going too far to
condemn the Hawaiian offer as a
backdown. The Bulletin has a
strong suspicion, though without
any authoritative hint, that
tho Government ris advised
from a high quarter among
tho nations in its proffer of arbi
tration. When it is considered
that its action places. Hawaii in a
liko position to that at Venezuela,
when Great Britain wn pressing
that little country to yield its
bouudary claim, Ihe matter takes
on a decidedly interesting aspect.
Simply, the Monroe Doctrine is
brought inevitably into swing
tho Venezuela precedent being too
recent to be forgotten and the
United States perforce must see
'that Hawaii, her peculiar pro
tegee, is not coerced into yielding
any rights she may claim without
a full and fair determination of
all the elements of controversy.
