WEDNESDAY, AUG. 2o, 1897.
Long beforo Japan wns given
unibiago by the rejection of a
large number of her emigrants at
Honolulu, through tho applica
tion of our general immigration
laws to their case, there existed a
popular alarm here ovor tho largo
uiuuber of Japaueo euteiing tho
country. This was not so much
with regard to tho influx under
tho regulations of tho Board of
Immigration in nccoulauco with
the Japanese labor immigration
convention, ns to tho great num
ber who slid in amongst thoso ns
froo immigrants and showed tho
850 prescribed for all aliens as a
guarautoo against their becoming
a charge on the stuto, or else
got round tho general laws by
putting themselves in tho hands
of tho Board of Immigration after
arrival. During an incipient
agitation of tho subject thero was
much discussion of tho scope of
both tho treaty of friendship and
tho labor convention with Japan.
The conclusion of tho wholo mat
ter seemed to be that, if the ob
jectionabln immigration came un
tie i tiei.tj lights, eiy delicate
treatment of the question would
be required to establish n chock;
but, on tho other hand, if it was
exclusively under tho labor con
vention, tho remedy was the sim
ple one, contained iu that instru
ment, of giving six mouths' notice
of abrogation. It is cmtainly
doubtful whether the freo i in mi
gration of Jnpnueso wna contem
plated by tho treaty of 1871, cud
it is understood to bo part of tho
Hawaiinu Governments case iu
the prosont controversy what a
wns not. Articles II. and V. uro
tho crucial ones, nnd thoy nro nB
follows would scorn to Imvo u bear
ing. Ho'mnkcB tho following to-lunik:
' Arllrlo II, Tim miIiJwIh of
th liberty frfi-ly ami securely to
ri i niimi iifivu
uoinu with tlii'lr Rhlps mid em-noon
to nil places, ports mill rltem in
thu torritorits of tlio othsr, whuro
trade with otlior nation is per
mitted; they tuny remain and re
sidn in miy such porta and plncoa
respectively, mm niro mm occupy
houses mid warehouses, mid mny
trndo in nil kmiia of produce,
manufactures mid mprchnndioo of '
awful commerce, onjoying nt a I,
havo boon, or may hercaftnr bo
iiiut'o iiin nnuiu Ji iYiii'i;ua iib iiiujr
granted to tho citizens or subjects
of any othor nation, paying at oil
times such duties and tnxos ns
may ho ozneted from tho citizens
or subjects of other nations doing
business or residing within the
torritories of each of tho high
Articlo V. The Japanoso Gov
ernment will place no restrictions
whatever upon the employment by
Hawaiian subjects of Jnpnueso in
any lawful capacity. Japanese in
the employ of foreigners may ob
tain government passports to go
abroad, on application to the gov
ernor of any opon port.
Should this Government,
through arbitration or otherwise,
bo required to coucodo thnt Japa
neao froo immigration is stipu
lated in tho foregoing articles, it
will thou in ca3o of Hawaii's
continued independence bo neces
sary to consider how to get the
treaty revised. This suggostion
lends up to the question nf how far
should tho principle of tho sacred
ness of treaties be applied to that
document. Regarding this what a
writer in the Nineteenth Century,
quoted in n previous article, snys
in his discussion of coitnin British
treaties would seem to have a bear
ing. Ho makes the following
All right-minded people agree,
as a gpneral principle, it is a very
serious matter to tamper with
troaties. They certninly should
not be denounced lightly because
their provisions no longer suit our
convenience, still less because
they do not prove as advantageous
to material interests aa was antici
pated. Lord Salisbury's observa
tion on this subject in a recent
speech is well worth quoting: "I
maintain that the principle of
acting upon treaties to which you
have deliberately acceded is a
sucied principle, nnd one which
lies at the base of the civilization
of the world." But the treaties
which he had in his mind wero
great international iustrumeuts
for tho settlement of far-reaching
questions, and not mere commer
cial conventions such as I am now
dealing with. Commercial treaties
havo always been temporary in
their character. They are almost
nlnays concluded for a fixed
period, because the statesmen who
negotiate them aro aware that tho
conditions of commerce to which
they aro intended to apply are
constantly chaugiug. We have
iu our own time seen commercial
treaty after commercial treaty de
nounced. Only a few years ago
Franco terminated by due notice
the famous treaty of 18G0 with
which we connect the naino of
Mr. Cobdcu, because she wished
to regain her complete liberty of
action and start upon a fresh
career of protoction.
Who can successfully affirm
that the, treaty between Japan and
Hawaii is anything but a com
mercial compact, mutable in its
character according to changing
circumstances, like the conven
tions described iu tho fqrogoing
English opinion ? Although it
was concluded as "perpetual,"
"commercial treaties have always
been tomporary in their charac
ter," but ouly "almost" always
concluded for a fixod period, ac
cording to tho authority here
Auy other appoiutmout than
that of Mr. McStockcr to tho office
of Collector General of Customs
now vacant would bo bo much out
of due ordor as to bo absurd. Al
though tho priuciplo of promoliou
mid regard for seniority havo
uot been established in gov
ernment affairs horo, yet thoso
considouitious havo gonoially
boon uccoided nioroor less woight.

This week we want to call
the attention of the public to
the excellence of the
for which we are the sole
agents for the Hawaiian Islands.
The merits of these wind
mills are so well known that
their repetition would be tire
some. It is sufficient to state
that the Aermotors will run
when all others are at a stand
still. They are self-reulatinc
requiring- no attention what
ever beyond an occasional
drop of "oil. There are more
Aermotors 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 Moana
lua; Ainister Cooper one at his
new Ahnoa mansion; Paul
lsenberg is so well satisfied
with them that he has no less
than four at his Waialae place.
we can snow 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
and Krogh's triple acting
siphon and other pumps and
patent water tanks of ?00,
1000, 2000, JOOO, ?000 and
10,000 gallons capacity.
