The following extracts from
Japanese exchanges on Hawaiian
matters will be of interest:
THE ANNEXATION QUESTION.
By the annexation of Hawaii by
the United States not only Japan's
interests in the Pacific, but tboso
of England, Germany and France
will also be greatly affected. They
will therefore make a formal pro
test wbon a proper opportunity
arrives. At present they are
wntcbing tbo proceedings of the
U. S. Senate and the general atti
tude of tbe American people as
well as tbo reply of tbo U. S. Gov
ernment to Japan's protest. It is
probable that tbo Powers will
protest jointly or singly wbon tbo
Foreign Affairs Committee re
ports tbe result of their investiga
tions to tho Senate. Undoubtedly
tbo Senate will carefully consider
the question of bow tbe interests
of other Powers will be affected
by tbe annexation and objections
arising therefrom. Of course the
Treaty cannot bo hurriedly rati
fied as tbe Powers may raise ob
jections after its ratification. It is
therefore very important for tbe
Senate to ascertain tbe attitudes of
tbe Powers before any definite de
cision is arrived at. Tbe reason
why Japan has made a protest as
soon as tbe signing of tbe annex
ation became known is that she
has done so simply out of friend
ship so aB to make known her
views in the matter before formal
diplomatic negotiations are open
ed. Tho Denote therefore will not
regard Japan's action with ill
feeling but will act quite impar
tially. Supposing, however, tho
Senate passes tbo treaty bow will
Japan act thon? Tho U. S. Secre
tary of State in reply to Japan's
first protest' bas stated that tbo
annexation of Hawaii does not
injure tbo interests in tbo Pacific
of Japan or any other countries
and that Hawaii bas, as history
shows, for tho pnst 75 years been
under tbe protection of tbo Unit
ed States. From this it appears
that tbe determination of America
on the subject is very firm. Tbe
Japanese Uovernment. however.
has not relied on tho attitude of
other countries from tbo outset
and, this policy will be adbored to
to tho last. Mainichi.

Tho gist of tbe latter, according to
tbo Mainichi, is said to bo as fol
lows: As the annexation Hawaii
by the United Slates is inimical to
tho maintenance of tbo existing
plnce in tbe Pacific Japan must
do all in ber power for tbo inde

to obtain tbo necessary guarnntco

BAKE DUTY IN ,HAWAII.
Referring to a recent telegram
of the imposition of increased im
port duty on sake in Hawaii the
Mainichi states that1 tbe proposal
was didcussed and passed by tho
Hawaiian parliament some time
ago and afterwards it was promul
gated as law. Japan's formal
protest was made after it was pro
mulgated and therefore it is
reasonable that importers of sake
should pay tho re Vised duty after
tho 1st of July ponding tho settlo
nient of negotiations on the sub
ject. It has further been agreed
upon between the Hawaiian Gov
ernment and the JapanoBO Ropro
spntfitivo in Honolulu that Bbould
the duty bo restored m heretofore

ence between tbe increased duty
of $1 shall be paid back to tho
importers. It is probr'jlo that the
duty will be again altered to that

L. L. McCandless reports having
Been a strange schooner lying off
Keeua, on the other Bide of
Waianae, all day last Sunday
weok. It was undoubtedly tbo
samo one reported by tho cap
tain of the Millo Morris as having
been seen by him lying at anchor
there at G p. m.
On comparing notes with Mar
shal Brown Mr. McCandless bas
no doubt that the schooner was
the Lena L. and he now regrets that
be did not telephone to tbe Mar
Rbiil on the spot. That official
figures that' McCandless is out
$5000 by not doing so, aud bu
figures it up as follows: One
fourth tho value of tbo schooner
$500; a dollar a pound for Bay
two tons of opium, and half tbo
fines of the captain and crow, say
8500 more. All of which would
have accrued to Mr. McCandless,
if his timely intelligence had ro
Bulted in the capture of tho
schooner and ber supposed cargo.
Mr. McCandless i says ho will
report overy schooner he sees
anywhoro near Eueua after this.

INTERVIEW WITH DR. DAY
TKf.t.H OF TUT. POLITICAL
SiriTATION IN JIMX.
Tile t'niiaiiiiiinti nf Nilgai-III Japan
Jnit I'qunU the 1'rndiicl
Among returning passengers by
tho Belgic this rooming was Dr.
F. R. Day, who has recently been
sont to Japnn and China on a
mission for tho governmentbav
ing for its object the establish
ment of joint quarantine regula
tions for intending immigiants to
Hawaii or tho United States. On
this subject Dr. Day declined to
say anything at present, as bo has
prepared a long' report for tho
Board6f Hiialth, which will be
read nt the mdeting tomorrow. Ho
mot Dr. Biooks, tho representative
of tho United States in this matter,
at Hongkong and waB with him
four or five days. Dr. Brooks ex
pressed biuiHolf as highly pleased
with the quarantine measures put
in force .by tbe Hawaiian Govern
meut nbHougtfnng and elsewhere
and promised tb report favorably
on tho project to apply them to
ill immigrants for United States
Leaving hero Dr. Day wont
direct to Hongkong to meet Dr.
Brooks. and together they inspect
ed the quarantine arrangements
recently inaugurated by the Paci
fic Mail Company at the sugges
tion of tho Hawaiian Govorument.
Dr. Brooks was unable to return
with him, having arranged his
itinerary to include avisit to tbo
northern coast of China as far as
Tientsin and possibly to Corea.
Dr. Day saw Bovoral cases of tho
plague at Miicuo and gained much
experionco in its treatment both
there and nt Hongkong. At
Macao whon ho loft Yokohama
tbore wore only ono or two cases
daily as against forty or fifty a
few weeks ago. At Hongkong
there wero only five cases in all,
evidently brought thoro from out
Bide ports. At Amoy and Formo
s an ports tho plague was reported
as raging virulently, but little re
liable information could bo ob
tained. Tbe Japanese Govern
ment was taking elahorato pre
cautions against it, and every vob
boI from Formosa, Macno aud
other infected placos was required
to roport at Japanese quarantine
stations, whether thero was sick
ness on board or not.
Returning to Japan Dr. Day
visited Kobe, Nagasaki aud Tokiq
and made a two-days' trip into
tbe interior to visit tbe famous
KusatBii springB.boiug everywhere
accorded tho utmost courtesies by
Japaneso officials. Anked to toll
of the political situation tlioro and
tho fpolnr on Hawaiinn offairs
Dr. Day said :
"Tho preBent Japanese govern
ment, or perhaps I should Bay tbo
pirty in power, is not by any
moans a strong ono. The opposi
tion is formid'iblo and the present
Cabinet lias nil it can do to keep
in office. Judging from what I
learned in conversation with for
eigners who havo lived along time
in Japan, I should say the country
is on the ovo of a political rovulnion
which may put an otid to theprosont
Ministry ut any time. Tho courso
of tho present government towards
Hawaii in tho immigration dif
ficulty is conservative and sineo
tho annexation trenty has come
beforo tho United States Senate
will bo moro bo. I was in Shang
hai ou Juno 19 when I got the
news of President McRiuloy's
action. Whon I got to Japan tho
Jnpauoso papers and tho common
pooplo tho robblo woro furious
and if tboy could havo had their
own way would no doubt havo
sent a squadron down and taken
forcible possession of the Islands.
But tho rabble does not control
tho Jnpnueoo government, any
more than it does others, Tho
Inpatient) pnpera are extremely
uuiuliable, if they can't get at tbo
facts they inanufaetuin Homothing
to atiHiver tho purpose, That
story about a squadron being sunt
to Hawaii was one of their yarns.
While the Japanese Government
has denied officially that it ever bad
any intention of annexing tbeso
islands, everything points to nn
opposite conclusion, and from
what I learned on my visit I have
no doubt that Japan haB long had
ber eyes in this direction. An
nttacho oi tho Tokio Foreign
Offico significantly remarked to
mo that tho consumption sugar
in Japan just' equalled tbe pro
duct of that commodity in Hawaii,
and stated that Hawaiian planters
need not worry if thoy lost the
"I was much interested in ray
visit to tho Eusatsu springs,"
continued tho doctor. "They are
two days distant from Yokohama
and there are no accommodations
for European tourists. Thoy aro
hot springs, gushing out of the
mountain side everywhere. The
wator has a temperature of from
128 to 138 degrees Fahrenheit, is
strongly impregnated with sulphur
aud contains much free sulphuric
nnd hydrochloric acid, so muob
that it tastes jnst like hot lemon
ado. The wator is not drauk,
however, but used for bathing.
The Japanese are very fond of'hot
baths nnd will lie for hours in
water at a temperature that would
cook Europeans. These springs
havo been noted for over a thou
sand years and are greatly resort
ed to by people from all parts of
the Empire. They a're visited an
nually by over 400 lepers alone,
and it was partly for observing
their effoct on leprosy that I visit
ed them." - f
TUB WOOftD.fU INCIDENT.
One Theory aflha Aflront to H. B. M.
In the Bulletin a few days ago
an account was given of the firing
of shots across tbe bows of the
British warship Immortalite by
ChinoBe artillerists, and the res
ponse of clearing tho ship for
action which was made. A letter
appears in tho Japan Gazetto of
July 12, which treats the incident
harshly as follows:
"Sir, Although sorao Chinese
aro tho biggest fools under the
sun, especially Chinese military
(savo the mark) mandarins, tho
yarn which wrb concocted to ex
plain the uttack of tho Woosung
forts upon H. M. S. Immortnlito
is really a trifle too thin for ordin
"I am strongly inclined to think
that tbo excuse- was all ready .pre
pared beforo Ihfi, attack was mado,
and tbnt it had somo connexion
with tho proposed whcol-barrow
"It may havo occurred to tho
idiotio imbeciles in charge of tho
forts f by tho way, aro not somo
foreign instructors at those forts?)
that they could scare off the Im
mortalito and thus ensure tho
rioters a freer hand thuu thoy
otherwise would have had, but
whether or not this bo so, they arc
such blooming idiots, from a
military point of view, that noth
ing they might do should aston
ish or bo too ridiculous to tho
"One Who Knows 'Em."
