Treaty, the editor, his portion of it, to get
off his usual fling at the Government.
The two designs do not harmonize well,
and the arguments clash.
Tt is not possible to convince our pablic
that a coolie importation ciist here, snch
as that trade is understood by the Ameri
can Congress and American people, and
described in the notice issued to-day by
the United States Minister Resident, "a
mode of enslaving ma differing from tho
former (i. e. the African slave trade) in
little else than the employment of fraud
instead of force to tnake its victim? cap
tive." The importation of onr laborers
has always been a voluntary one on their
part, and conducted with as strict regard
to the equities of all parties concerned, as
the usual agreements between the employ
er and emploved. Our American resi
dents, whose homos, plantations, and other
departments of work, have been supplied
with labor by these immigrants, including
as employers the writers of tho leader
themselves, do not believe they are parties
to a modified slave system, nor dare they
assert that coolieism, as understood in its
offensive sense, forms any part of the labor
system of these islands. Therefore when,
from special instances of crime or discon
tent, rare enough in the history of our im
ported laborers, and forming such notable
exceptions as only to prove most strongly
o lr assertion, that the Chinese have had
no cause of complaint, either in the manner
of their being brought here or in their
treatment while in service, the writgrs
attempt to charge upon us an odious coolie
importation the statement can only mis
lead at a distance, and just where it was
meant to mislead and injure us.
AVe deny, in toto, that coolies are
brought here. Laborers under contracts of
service bae been introdoced.bat under no
disabilities as regards their personal liber
ties and immunities. It is easy to misrep
resent every undertaking, especially those
made to fill up the population of a country.

Early on Sunday morning lost. His
Highness M. Kekuanaoa, the Venerable
Father of His Majesty, was attacked with
appoplezy, resulting in slight .paralytic
symptoms. Jle was sitting on the veran
dah of his residence at the time, apparent
ly in bis usual health. His condition being
deemed critical by the physicians, the
steamer PeUe was dispatched at noon to
Molokai to inform the King, and advise
his retorn to town.
His Majesty arrived on Mondayat six
o'clock r. by the Kamaile.
The unfavorable symptoms have some
what abated, and from the medical report
this morning we may entertain eomehopes
of his recovery, although great doubt still
hangs over his case.
The leader of the -dcfrertiser.last week,
on Bonded Laborers, is evidently the com
Dosition of two writersXhe outside hand
patting in his views with the purpose of
giving a damaging blow to the Reciprocity

society, and a useless class, given jo vaga
bondage when out of their- time, and fit
only for the chain-gang. 4
Has it discovered the necessity of a
new mission that of misrepresenting our
labor system to the United States. Per
haps it desires that the sensibilities of its
Senate must be aroused to the belief that
we are inveiglingAmerican ships and
American citizens into a coolie traffic,
(odius to us a3 well as to them) so that an
unfriendly feeling may thereby be created
towards this country.
But we trust this purpose may fail. Our
system of immigration has been fully ex
plained, and we may hope is fully under
AVhat is the attitude of this Govern
ment towards these imported laborers?
When the matter of taxes came np, the
direct question was presented to the Gov
ernment, whether the personal character
of the Chinese was compromised by their
contracts. The Governmentinsisted that
they were persons and taxed them as snch,
the Attorney General's opinion distinctly
stated that nothing savoring of slavery
could be tolerated in this Kingdom.
But lately we published an official form
of contract, which provides against contin
uance, on the ground of indebtedness of
the laborer, which, if allowed, might be
come a dangerous form of servitude.
The Advertiser republishes a law passed
by the last Assembly, pronouncing it as a
coolie code, and thrusts upon the Govern
ment the responsibility of its passage. The
law did not originate with the Government,
was not supported by them, but, strange to
say, passed against their votes by the
Peoples Party (so called by the IcfrfTiser),
and by tbem was placed upon the Statute
Book. If by any inference the hw can
be construed as conferring arbitrary power
over any class in this country, the Adver
tiser friends are responsible for it. But
whenever under its provisions any odious
class regulations have been promulgated, it
will be time enough for that virtuous guar
dian of the oppressed to seize upon the
The Government did introduce a law
that all contracts, should be made in both
languages, with other provisions, of like
nature, to guard against injustice to ser
vants, which met with but lukewarm
support, from the friends of the law above
The conclusion arrived at by the Ad
vertiser, that the cure for the evils, which
it sets forth, is that, to pritate enterprise,
should be committed, the introduction of
laborers, is most surprising. The propo
sition has been discarded long ago, by
writers on the subject as unsound, and
Governments have either taken the sup
plying of labor wholly into their own
hands, or placed it under special regula
tions, meant to counteract the sad conse
quences of private greed and Eelfish emol
The case of the Eastfiell is quoted as
one of those instances of coolie transpor
tation, which should make the blood-boil.
Now it happens that the Eastfield was
completely a caso of private enterprise.
Her Chinese were brought here, in
defiance of our laws, the prohibition
having been published at the instance of
the Minister of the Interior in the Hong
kong papers before the departure of the
vessel from that port. The firm to whom
they were consigned was insolvent, and
the Government would not allow the
Chineso to be landed, except under the
strictest conditions and to prevent further
hardship, by the men being sent on to the
Chincha Islands, and that snch of them as
were rejected here, should be returned to
China and nowhere else.
It was he Government also, that re
quested the British Commissioner, to in
vestigate the conduct of the Captain of tho
Eastfield, as rumors of ill treatment on the
passage were circulated throngh the town.
The Advertiser is not correctly informed
ns to tho intorpncltion nf thn British
Commissioner. He did not discover a
condition of things that required the ex-,
ercise of his authority. That investigation
resulted in the fact, that the stories of tho
IrfrertiseT as rehashed again last week,
were exaggerated and they were refuted at
the time in a letter of the Captain and
others, published in (his paper. The fact
that four of the coolies were- in irons, will
not be credited by sea-going men as nn un
usual hardship, where ship discipline is to
be preserved. The sensibilities of the
Advertiser may often be excited in this
way by visiting ships that resort to this
The management of these Chinese was
wholly in private hands, both on ship and
shore, and the only care of our authorities
wast to see that our laws were complied
with in the business.
It will not do to beg the whole ques
tion by saying ol all the Lninese in
troduced herj, that "to all intents and
purposes they are regarded as chattels."
Tbey are not so regarded, nnd if the
Advertiser wishes to te3t the question
let it, as it suggests, try the effect of
a writ of habeas corpus. If, as it asserts,
this writ issued at the time of their
arrival would release them from their con
tracts, why cannot they be released now ?
They are still working under their con
tracts, and if they were illegal then
they are illegal now? Does it mean to
say, that every Chinese laborer on the
plantations can at any time release himself
of his contract?
But wo leave the planters and other
employers of tho laborers, to ponder oyer
the Advertiser's views, and to accept
without an indignant denial if so disposed,
Mount Cents, In the Alps, Is the centre of
as wonderful efforts of human labor as have
ever been projected by the ingenuity of man,
or undertaken by human hands. A tunnel,
seven and a half miles In length, is under
process of construction through the moun
tain, commenced in 1857,'wltb the prospect
if being completed in 1S71. So deep is Its
line beneath the exterior of the mountain
that no air shaft can reach it, and not the

Compressed air, forced through gutta-per-c'ia
pipes by stationary engines outside, sup
plies the power to drive tho cxcavatlDg
machines, and when liberated the air
necessary for the lungs of the workmen.
'When the tunnel is completed, a draft through
will dislodge some of the Impure air, but it
must be supplemented by air supplied by the
stationary engines. It will be a long, dark
ride, even In the cars. The transit through
the tunnel, in consequence of the average
gradient on the French half being one In 45Jf ,
and the steepest gradient on the line one
in 28, it will not be possible for a train
to go through from north to south In less
than from 33 to 40 minutes. Coming from
tlie south to north the ascent Is much more
gradual, but even In this case the transit will
occupy from SO to S3 minutes as a minimum.
It has yet to be seen whether passengers will
not prefer the outside line instead of being
shut up in a tunnel so long.
About two miles more of perforation will
finish the tunnel, and bring the two bodies
of workmen from the French and the Italian
sides together. It will be lined in its entire
length with stone quarried in the immediate

Editor of the Gazette:
In the last number of the Commercial Ad
vertiser, a "star" criticism appears on the
communication signed "Janus," in your is
sue of Ang. 18th.
This asterlcus writer has the faculty of fa
cetlousness developed in an astounding de
gree, for he informs us outside barbarians
that "there Is a Gazette In London, and there
is a river in Macedon, and there arc bull-frogs
as well as bulls." -
This astounding piece of information con
tains all of real merit in the laborious com
position stuffed with exclamation points,
which witb one exception, furnish all the
points in tbe article.
This exception we will proceed to state in
the "funny" writer's own words. In the
first line of the article we find the following
exceedingly ingenious pbry upon the word

the line by tbe complications required by the
introduction of the central rail, why should
not tbe modification be made so as to pre
vent tbe necessity for a central rail? Cer
tainly an enormous loss by friction would
be saved. Locomotives on Mr. Farlle's

fect security in turning sharp curves. In
saying this wc are only repeating practical
opinions expressed on tbe spot, without com
mitting to tbem tbo journal in which this
letterappears. It Is qnite certain that Alpine
railways will not stop at Mont Cenis, and
tbat tbe minds of engineers and mechanics,
alike of England, France and Italy, are now
turned to tbe means of devising methods of
overcoming physical obst ructions opposed by
mountains bv almDler aDDlIcations of steam
power than those Just successfully commenc
ed in this rase. That success should involve
possible competition is a law of nature, and
it Is an advantage to the public; but tbe pub-
lie must also acknowledge and reward tbe
efforts and labors of such men as Mr. Fell
and bis colleagues, wbo have gallantly led
tbe way In-this particular march of pro
serviceable sanitary measure. This method
has already been adopted in someother cities
with very excellent results. It Is evident
tbatslreet tilth is far less injurious when
dry than when moist, during the extreme
heat of the summer months. Sprinkling
luruisucs one oi me two conuiuons thai are
absolutely necessary before decomposition
can take place, namely, moisture; and as
sprinkling is most frequent on hot days, it Is
plain that it can not take place without
causing an amount of decomposition that
noiuu not omerwisc occur.
The Board approved the suggestion, and
the counsel was directed to prepare an ordi
nance by which it could be carried Into
EnrjEMics. The appearance of small-pox
and scarlet fever in San Francisco, naturally
causes us some solicitude lest any of these
dangerous diseases may be brought by vessels
arriving from there. Thus far, no occasion
has arisen to detain Bhlps outside by reason
of sickness on board, and with the subsid
ence of the epidemics on the coast, we may
hope tbat danger from that quarter la fast
passing away. The experience with the
small-pox, vthen It swept over us tome years
ago, has resulted in a more universal prepar
