(juito interesting iu itsoli is tlio
innttorof thn denunciation of com
murcial treaties by the British
GoNurumunt to clear tho way for
the accoptoneo of proforontial turifT
terms ottered by Cauada. Taking
tho offer nnd the manner in which
it was rocoived together, tho or
r.tngoraoutishold by astuto observ
ers to be tho first practical move
toward Imperial Union. Two
questions wero raised when tho
proposal was ruado by the Domi
nion Government iu carrying its
new tariff through Parliament.
Ono was whother it was in contra
vention o the "most favored na
tion clause" iu the treaties of
Great Britain with Germany and
Belgium, and tho other whether
iu such a case Grout Britain would
reject the filial offer from her
greatest colony for the sako of
those treaties. Some of tho most
eminent luwycrs held that the
"most favored nation clause" in
tho treaties would not apply,
because Canada had always
enjoyed indopendenco in making
her own tariffs as part of her self
goveinmout. As a matter of fact,
the old tariff was more favorable
to American than to British goods
not, of course, specifically dis
criminating in that way but actu
ally having such a result. That
question has, however, been made
purely an academic one by the
answer given by the Imperial
Government to the second ono in
formally denouncing tho treaties.
The discussion of the whole mat
tor by British and Canadian au
thorities, inoro or less" eminent,
has educed points relative to trea
ties in gouoral which have con
siderable of special interest for
Hawaii. Lately a San Francisco
paper sneered at "the kanaka
statesmanship" marking the pro
vision in tho troaty between Jap
an. and Hawaii, which by implica
tioL at least would make it mi
2os9iblo .to either mend or end
the tieaty, so long as eithor of the
parties chose to hold the other to
its original form. There was no
"kmiaku statesmanship" in fram
ing the treaties of Great Britain
with Germany and Belgium, yet
their "most favored'nation clause"
is such a a to causo a writer in the
Nineteenth Century to make this
oomment: "One can only stand
aghast at tho amazing nature of
this agreement." Gieat Britain
granted to Germany and Belgi
um absolute identity of treatment
with herself in every British
colony and possession, without
any reservation of righls iu case
of eventualities, whilo receiving
no giant in return of correspond
ing privileges in Gorman or Bel
For shortsightedness and lapse
of judgment such an arrangomont
beggars tho alleged "kanaka
statesmanship" of Hnwaii'ts Ueaty
with Japan, excepting in tho
choice of language to express
ideas. Eminent lawyers have yet
to pass upon tho revision articlo
of tho Japanese-Hawaiian troaty.
If over thoy do so, possibly thoy
may lay tho ghost of ono-sided
..dictation. The articlo reuds: "It
' is hdroby agreed that such rcvi
, sion of this treaty, on giving six
months' previous notice to oithor
of tho high contracting parties,
may Iki tnmloMiy mutual ngimi
incut, n xwrleiirn Minll (novo
iieecdMary." Whatever lln iilgtil
lleaiieo in tin) Iiimiiiihi voihIoii,
tho article U xlicur iioiihoiiho in
English. It says by tho syntax
Hint thu "rotUlou" ii to give tho
notice. Of cotirio Its Intont in
that one of the high contracting
parties is to givo the uotico tn tho
otliur, lint tho latigtiago does not
at all express that idua. How
over, tho eminent lawyers
in (juastiou limy hold that
only thu actual work of revision
is stipulated to bo by "mutual
ngreatuout," and "as oxporiouco
shall prove necessary," but that
the fact of hi'x mouths' uotico
being given should imply that
there was no louger mutuality of
conseut to tho oxistenco of tho
treaty as it stood; therefore, at tho
expiration of tho notice, it an
agreement could not bo mado to
make it mutually acceptable, tho
treaty should fail. Whou all is
said, howover, thoro does not seem
to bo any particular reason for
Hawaii to seok a revision of the
treaty of friendship with Japan,
It only accords reasonablo trading
privileges to Japanese subjects iu
tho ports of the Hawaiian Islands,
whilo it gives Hawaiians all the
rights and privileges of the most
favored nation in Japin.
Thcro is nothing about Japanese
"immigration" iii it, as the term
is generally understood. The
immigration convention was mado
for a term of five years, to remain
in force thereafter until six
months' .previous notico should
have boon given by one of tho
contracting parties to the other of
its inteution to abrogate it. The
San Francisco paper that referred
to "kanaka statesmanship" must
have erroneously applied tho
"mutual agroemont" provision of
tho troaty to tho labor conven
tion. If it is only once a year round
the sun, still the world does move.
The Sydney Daily Telegraph now
drops the "u" in words where the
Australasian press has hitherto
uniformly followed tho Old Coun
try spelling. Iu the Diamond
Jubilee year, too ! The first in
stance noticed in ono issue the
word "endeavoring" was taken
for a typographical error, but a
glance over the pages revealed
"neighborhood," "favor," etc.,
showing that the reform was fully
adopted As that papor is ono of
tho greatest in the Colonies, its ex
amplo will go far in spelling re
form. According to a recent dispatch
from Berlin, the Gorman Govern
ment is likely ngaiu to propose
to Groat Britain and tho Uuited
States that thoy completely dis
arm tho. Samoans. Those throo
Powers ought to do something in
Samoa, for business is completely
paralyzed there in consequonce of
tho political muddle.
Queen Victoria would seem to
have studied to givo a quiotus to
the periodical rumors of abdica
tion in tho passago concluding a
Jubiloo message to her subjects,
worded as follows: "I shall over
pray to God to onablo mo to dis
charge my duties for my people's
welfuro us long as my life lasts."

This week we want lo call
the attention of (he public to
the excellence of the

Inc merits ol these wind
mills are so well known that
their repetition would be tire
some. It is suliicicnt to state
that the Aermotors will run
when all others are at a stand
still. They are self-rcgulatinjr.
requiring no attention what
ever beyond an occasional
drop of oil. There arc more
Aei motors sold in the islands
than all other makes of wind
Among those who have re
cently purchased Aermotors of
us may be mentioned Minister
Damon, who has one at Aloana
lua; Minister Cooper one at his
new Atanoa mansion; Paul
Isenberg is so well satisfied
with them that he has no less
than four at his Waialae place.
We can show an Aermotor
Windmill in actual operation
which pumps water 4000 feet
to an elevation of 190 feet.
There is no other that will do
this. We can furnish the Aer
motor with pumping mills or
geared to run machinery. These
latter will perform all the work
of a one to four horse power
In connection with these
windmills we supply Gould's
apd Krogh's triple acting
siphon and other pumps ana
patent water tanks of 00,
1000, 2000, JOOO, 5000 and
