On Monday, tho BuLi.irm will

Capt. Nichols, who was an tho
Bonningtou uhou the ollicial or

nish tho Bulletin with eomo
valuablo nputrality data.
According to tho Commission's

New Year bo a huppy one, and
may Congress givo to tho peoplo
of this territory tho American
liberality and freedom which the
events of tho eventful year just
Col. Irieher's rotuurliu regarding
political organization aro appro
ciated. This is tho time for
action, not delay. Col. Eishor's
statemeut also brings out very
clearly the estimate tho Americans
of this teiritory placo upon the
Advertiser's campaign of epito and
Under tho territorial law tho
department of public instruction
is turned nsido with tho conferring
upon tho superintendent of public
instruction all the powers now
held by tho Minister of Public In
struction. Tho Minister of Public
Instruction is now simply ox offi
cio momber of tho Commissioners ,
of Education. The quory arises
what is to becomo of tlio inspector
geuotnl and tho commissioners.
Tlio ouly Hobson is hero. He
has been told so many times by
tho peoplo of tho United States
how highly his bravery and skill
is thought of that tho Bulletin
will simply add that it agrees with
all tho good things that havo boon
said. The oflicial organ of tho
Hawaiian government recently
announced that Hobson is an
onthusiaBtio young upstart who
doesn't know his business. For
tunately, howover, tho oflicial
organ does not roproseut tho sen

A NEW UIPI.OM.vnV.
Tho Montreal Witnoss makes a
very interesting and tiraoly com
ment on tho now diplomacy which
Undo Sam has brought into oxist
onco as a Tesult of tho war. For
many yoarB conversations and cor
respondence betwoen govornmonts
havo liottii carried on in hiphly
technical phraseology looming with
tho fine-spuu eubtletios of refined
French. Continuing its commont
tho Witness says:
"Tho way iu which ho called
egg eggs is illustrated by an ex
pression of Mr. Day, who at tho
Paris conforenco broko short an
astoundiugly learned and inter
minable discussion of what should
or should not bo iu tho proposed
treaty by tho plain statoraent that
anything may bo in a troaty of
peace that tho victors see fit to put
there. This sort of talk is brutal,
shocking and, to tho eafs of tho
old Bchool of diplomatists, ox
tromoly vulgar. But what could
thoy do about it ? Undo Sam was
too big aud too determined to bo
rebuked or trilled with, nud bo
with ono sweop of his arm ho
brought down all tho cobwobs aud
reduced tho 'laugnago of diplo
macy' to plain business English.
Whoever would speak with him
must do so iu a tongue ho can un
derstand and in a way to bo uu
dorstood. "Among Englishmon tho inno
vation seems to bo regarded ns a
refreshing change, and has found
iu Mr. Chambarlain, Sir Edmund
Mousou and other statesmen imi
tators who ovpn improvo on their
instructors. To tho obsorvor of
events, howovcr, tho chanco ap
pears as a sign of tho rise in tho
world of Anglo-Celtic power, aud
tho beginning of an era of plain
spoakiug nud open dealing, to
which, whothor thoy liko it or not,
tho other nations will havo to sub
mit." CAUIlll'.S its oiv.v aihju ?ii:.t.
In tho Associated Pross corres
pondence of tho San Francisco
paporB appears in this statomont:
" It is claimed that an effort Is being
niaJe to secure the endorsement of a large
number of native Hawaiian. A petition
Is now being circulated for that purpose.
While Sewnll's name is not mentioned,
the document reads to the effect that the
nitive H.iwaliansdesire"Presldent AUKIn
ley not to appoint to the office of Governor
any person connected with tiie recent revo
lution on the islands."
Hero is uu ovidenco and a result
of tho campaign of newspaper
misrepresentation which tho ofli
cial (jr-'an is carrviutr on. The
Associated Press correspondent
states Hint ho knows of no such
petitioned being circulated.
Tho st&iotnout that such a peti
tion WftB being circulated in tho
interests of Mr. Sawall was mado
by the Advertiser, tho official
organ of tho Hawaiian Govern
ment. Tho Independent and tho
Bulletin branded tho iuferonco
as a lio aud tho latter asked that
tho Advertiser produce thopotition
and tho ovidonco. Tho official
organ of the governmont mado no
reply, had no petition to produce,
no evidence to prosout.
Tho campaigu of tho oflicial
organ nud oflicial circlo carries its
own argumoiit. It tho misrepre
sentations mado by tho ollicial or
gan can help Mr. Dolo's causo iu
Washington, Mr. Dolo is wolcomo
to the assistance.

Washington, Decombor 23. It
is nccopted as littlo short of cer
tain in tho best-informed circles
that negotiations will bo opened
at an early hour towardmodify-'
iug tho Clayton-Bulwor treaty so '
as to moot tho conditions of tho I
present. It is folt that tho better 1
understanding botweon tho Uuit-
ed States and Great Britain may
lead up to instructions from tho '
Foreign Offico to toko up tho
whole subject, but ns yet no such
instructions havo been rocoivod up
to this limo.

tion of tho Nicnrnguan canal by '

to Great Britain as it is to the i

donco going to show that the
British Government may seizoi
upon tho opportunity to ask for a '

ceivo just now what shapo this
will take, but, it is suggested with
considerable plausibility that this
may afford tho key to tho solution
of tlio reciprocity problem, which
has bo greatly cmbarraBcd tlio

In other wordsj iu consideration
