A strict supervision should be kept
up and no unauthorized person should
be allowed to go habitually armed. Theso
laws about carrying weapons aro as old as
tho hills almost: and again nnd again as a
peoplo havo become highly civilized thoy
have invariably seen tho necessity of removing
tho temptation which tho carrying
of arms inevitably jives. Not only should
thero be a supervision of thoso who carry
arms, but thero should bo restrictions upon
thoso who sell arms. Hero is something
for our now legislature to attend to.
A sixole paragraph in tho President's
very lengthy message is devoted to Hawaii
nei, it runs as follows :
"The King of llie Hawaiian Island", in the
conrso of Itis homeward return, after a journey
around tho world, ha lately visited this
country. While our relations with that Kingdom
are friendly, this Government has viewed
with concern the etTirls to seek a replenishment
of the diminishing population of the Islands
from outwaid sources to a degree which
may impair their native sovereignty and independence,
in which the United States was
among the first to tuBtify a lively interest,"
Tho wording of this is very clover ; a
friend of ours said tho document should
havo been moro explicit; that it ought to
havo said moro or less, but that is exactly
what it did not intend to do. "Wo seo our
contemporary interprets this passage as
being aimed against the influence of
Chinese. Wo know, very well indeed,
that the introduction of Chinese into theso
island is viewed with no friendly eyo by
our powerful neighbor; but though tho
paragraph in question may very reasonably
bo interpreted as our contemporary
does, it may just as reasonably bo interpreted
in a different manner. Viewed in
another light, it might be regarded as
having reference to tho East Indian
Coolies; or from still another point of viow
as a menace against tho too frco introduction
of Portuguese; others, throwing asido
the labor question think, it means thorough
hostility to tho reciprocity treaty. "Worded
as the paragraph is, it is really impossible
to givo an intepretation of its meaning,
without knowing more of the motives
which led to penning tho words, than
most of us know down here. Themessago,
however, teaches ono lesson which, as it
were lies in a nutshell r this country as long
as it governs itself properly, as long as
the property interests aro not interfered
with, or jeopardized, will bo recognized
as an independent sovereignty ; but the
very moment that a course of politics, or
action is entered upon, which will interfere
seriously with theso interests, then
thero is a power which feols that it is of
the greatest importance to itself to speak
and to speak strongly. Tho independence
of this small nation depends entirely
upon its ability to manage its own affairs
properly, without undue friction. Small
though tho country is, to the patriotic
minister, it presents by no means a
comfortable conrso to steer. Ho is liko a
captain of a small craft, which is sailing
through somo dangerous channel full of
rocks and shoals of many kinds, upon
which ho mav wreck his little bark of
State; ho may however sail nlong smoothly
enough as long as he can manage his crow:
out tne instant a mistake is made Dy mm
or his crew mutiny, it is all over with him
and all hands too; tho vessel goes down,
or else she has to bo towed ont of her
"pililria," and claimed as a derelict.
What Hawaii has to guard against is the
danger of becoming a derelict on tho
"When are we going to havo a proper
interpreter of Chinese? Tho question is
right square before us; a Chinese interpreter
of Caucasian race is an absolute
necessity, situated as we aro situated; and
yet we have no such man, and not only
have wo no such man, but to tho best of our
knowledge, no effort, worthy of the name,
is being mado to obtain one; that somo
ono is necessary is readily acknowledged,
bnt there is very little definite idea of the
amount of salary that should bo offered to
him, of tho duties he would have to perform,
of what his status wonld bo when
ho arrived, and so forth. Vaguo ideas

Gazette, under ita present management.
A rear ngo when wo looked into the future,
how full of possibilities it seemed to be,
what wonderful things might not be bom
out of the womb of time. The lost issue
of 1880, before we took up the editorial
pen, contained a graceful little Now Year's
article, in which it was said that when
the year had deposited its large burdens
at the doors of the great nations, it found
a small, maiU entwined, sweot scented
packet for little Hawaii the fortuno of
the coming year. The packet has been
now rmrolled, its inmost secrets are patent
in nil. "What did that packet brine! It
brought a long journey to the King, dur

acquainted with mnny of the potentates
of the earth, and has no doubt learned
many valuable lessons.,
During His Majesty's absence, His sister,
ilin "Princess liiliuokalani. ably attended
J to public affairs, showing herself capable
i of handling and understanding the ques
tions of importance ns tney came along,
and displaying at times a vigorous will.
The death of Mr. Chief Justice Harris
on July 2d removed a strong and able
man, who had served the country well for
mnnv vears. and whoso loss will long bo
felt by thoso who were accustomed to do
upon mm ior oayice uuu uiej en-many.
fpena After the return of the King, tho
i Hon" A. F. Judd was appointed to fill the
i vacancv. an appointment which has been
, received with general satisfaction.

lino veritable solution ol our laoor ana
population difficulties it has brought us
large quanties of Chinese, a matter which
has been lengthily discussed in these
columns. The difficulties arising from
tho presence of a largo number of this
class of persons are still before us, and
will no doubt occupy the minds of most
i of our thinkers for some time to come.
Laborers have been introduced from
other countries as well: tho Portuguese
Islands of tho Atlantic have added a
healthy and desirable class to our population,
which it is the intention of the present
administration to draw still inoro
largely from during the coming year, and
Mr. Carter has been sent to conclude a
treaty which will give greater facilities for
their import. Two ship loads of immigrants
have been received from Norway;
these gavo satisfaction at first, but are not
now regarded as desirable immigrants.
The Pomarc brought us a number of
Papuan laborers who are well thought of

The blackest fold of all that New Tear's
package was the small pox, which dread
disease carried of between two and three
hundred victims, in spito of all that could
be dono against it. Of the great lava
flow, we had had a premonition, Madame
Pele had, as it were, left her card upon us
lato last year, but she had not informed
us how long she was going to stay it was
not tiUAuast last that she finally took
leave of us: not until she had
thoroughly frightened tho citizens of Hilo
and the vicinity, and made every ono very
anxious, in fact, we came down to the
point of almost quarreling with the old
lady. Mr. Sterling visited tho flow with a
view to seeing where was tho best place to
give ner a good mowing up wiui uy
Tho next unpleasant thing has been the
attacks from a portion of the San Francisco
press,attacks win en nave been freely copied
by papers further east, and which aro
CTaduallr wormimr their wav to Europe.
Tho first of these appeared toward the latter
end of June; they wero then laid asido
for a time, but camo on in full swing in
October, and aro now still being directed
against us, with every likelihood of con
tinuance for somo time to come. The attacks
have been met and answered by the
here, but tho authors of tho attacks
Eress not cared for facts, their solo object
has been to work up an excitement, and if
possible to make a fow dollars out cf the
matter ; in the latter expectation, thoy
have, up io tho present, signally failed.
The attack has brought prominently bef oro
the public tho necessity of a Planters'
Association, and this movement has been
frequently urged in these columns; up to
tho present, the planters have not stirred
much upon tho subject beyond one letter
written by an important and wealthy Maui
Elanter, which appeared Juno 23th,
urging such an organization, and suggesting
October or November as suitablo
months to meet.
The subject of Leprosy has been brought
prominently before tho public. The necessity
of segregation of lepers was urged
in theso columns in January, and tho
matter was again taken up in August and
September, when a series of articles appeared
on the subject. About the middle
of September the authorities began collecting
a number of these peoplo ; a
hospital has been erected at Fisherman's
Point, where lepers may stay for a while
before being finally Eent to Molokai. This
hospital is now open and appears to be
popular; but only time can tell what permanent
good it will do.
During February and March the Gazette
devoted a considerable space to tho
mattor of inquests, which did not appear
to be properly attended to. The articles
wero called forth after the death of Louis
Young; a man who was found injured on
a sido walk, he died, and no pott mortem
was made on tho body. If in nothing
else at least in this our efforts wero successful,
and inquests aro now at once hold
upon all sudden or suspicious deaths
Here we feel that good has been done.
Crimes of violence have increased considerably
during tho year; we have had
the unpleasant dutv of recording several
murders and homicides. Two of these, by
Chinese have been especially significant,
showing for how slight a cause theso
people will resort to violence in theso two
cases the crimes were committed because
small sums of money could not bo collected

During August and September thero
was a great religious revival among a large
section of our population. Mr.
a revivalist, who had worked with
Messrs Moody and Sanky having been invited
to come down. Tho movement has
resulted in permanent good to many.
Ane arrangements ior trie entry of Hawaii
into the Universal Postal Union have
been completed and it will bo a source of
great satisfaction when our first mail will
be dispatched under the new conditions.
There has been considerable commercial
prosperity. The sugar crop has been an
excellent one ; rains have been copious
and tho canes have yielded well, with the
promise of n still better yield during the
ensuing year. The season of
gave us upwards of 44,000 tons and the
coming season of 1881-82 will probably
give 65,000. Bice continues to be a favorite
industry with the Chinese, during the
nine months ending September 30th,
4,072rS001bs of rice and 103701bs of paddy
wero exported, representing a gain
over the corresponding nine months of
1SS0 of 157,160lbs of rico; whilo paddy
found no place in tho exports of the first
nine months of 1880. In fact every branch
of our exports shows a steady gain, but
for a full view of tho matter we most
await the.rgport f or the twelve months,
which willDpear in the early Dart of
next year. jKfico it to soy that now mills
havo been erected, now enterprises undertaken,
new vessels bought for trade and
that there seems an excellent chance of
continued prosperity daring 1882.
"Wo have hastily glanced nt onljr a very-few
of the prominent events which aro
likely to make 1881 remembered in Hawaii.
The assassination of tho rulers of
two great powers, like thoso of Russia and
the United States will point it out very
strongly to tho whole world. Looking
out into tho world and comparing tho
prospects of great nations with our own
we mav be content with our lot. Civil
war is threatened in Ireland; foreign war
looms up before, France, who is now
moreover already encaged in a petty war-
faro in Tunis. Socialism is rampant in
Germanv. Nihilism, enm and nwo inspir
ing, broods over the futuro of Russia. In
tho United States the cloud which settled
over tho political horizon upon tho death
of Garfioid, seems to lie dissipating, but
thoro is uneasiness among some peoplo
still. In spito of our troubles then, in
spite of tho labor difficulty, the lack of
population, and the many ills to which
all countries aro heir to, wo ought to look
tho cominir year boldly in tho face "Wo
onrfit to none for continued prosperity
and to trust that tho unknown f nture may
be laden with blessmtrs and happiness to
tho nation collectively and to its peoplo
individually, and bo prove a Hapit New
Yeae all round.
Iiaw which is openly dehed is worso
than no law at all; now we would ask if
tho Act to "Prevent the carrying of deadly
weapons" is not daily defied? If upon
tho other islands, and even in Honolulu,
there aro not a number of peoplo who
carry deadly weapons ? Why is not tho
law put in force against such offenders ?
It is to Do supposed oecause it nas veiy
seldom been put in force and that it is
difficult once haviDg got into n rut to get
out of it. Tho defiance of this law some
years ago may have been confined to a
fow isolated persons, and as those made
no ill use of their weapons, no one thought
it worth his while, or necessary, to seo
that it was strictly enforced. This is that
easy slipshod manner of doing things
which is thorouuhlv characteristic of tho
tropics; but which eo often puts its fol
lowers into a quicksand.
A firm in this town took tho law somewhat
into their own hands tho other day,
upon the matter of weapons; wo think
their action thorouchly justifiable, only
what they did privately should bo done
systematically. A. gang 01 wnnese arrived
from the coast by one of the sailing
ackers, wo think the DUcoxcry. Agents
E ere, whoso clients wanted laborers, engaged
them. Upon discussion with tho
shipping master, he stated that ho was
afraid, and could do nothing with them,
because- all tho now comers were armed.
cordingly tho Chinamen duly arrived with
their kits, turned them ont nnd had them
examined. During tho course of tho examination
of tho first kit n revolver appeared.
""What's thatl What do you
want that for!" "Oh, mo California
Chinaman, mo alio same Melican man,
that my leovolver." Tho " leevolver " was
duly examined and admired, and the other
colcstials were drawn to snow tneirs,
when tho whole ten wero raised, tho agents
confiscated them for tho timo, telling the
that such weapons could not bo
there may bo, but the matter has taken no
In every relation of life the necessity of
having such an interpreter is felt. In the
police department, when investigating
crime we ore entirely in tho hands of
irresponsible men, men whoso translation
may bo good, or may not ; men who may
be telling the story correctly or may bo
garbling it, or even be incapable of rendering
it properly. It is a serious thing to
contemplate, that at times tho ends of
justice aro defeated becauso tho evidence
either for or against the prisoner has been
incorrectly given, that either a scoundrel
gets off 6cot free or that an injustico has
been done to somo unfortunate man, and
yet this must and does continually happen.
Take again tho investigation of
accounts. "Wo havo in this city and scattered
over tho group a largo number of
Chinese firms. Theso, without exception
keep their accounts entirely in Chinese.
These accounts aro a scaled book to all of
us here; when wo havo to investigate them
what can wo do? "Wo call in tho assistance
of a third party and trust that what ho
tells ns about them is true; but wo havo
no guarantee that it is so. "Wo have no
means of check upon tho Btntcments save
from tho good-will of somo Celestial. In
labor matters thero should also bo somo
thoroughly efficient person who could,
when a serious difierenco of opinion
between employer and employed occurred
got at tho root of tho matter, and instead
of giving tho result of his investigations
in a half-broken English, capable of misinterpretation,
present it in a cloar,
conciso form which would carry conviction
to the mind of ovory practical man.
It is, moreover, not only what tho translator
would do himself, but it is the wholesome
check that he would bo upon translators
of Chinese race.
"When a man knows that what ho sayB
can be overhauled by a person thoroughly
competent to understand what is true and
what is untrue, ho will becomo moro chary
of what ho says; ho will bo careful to
render into English the exact truth, ho
will hesitate to add this or that word
which will either seom to oxtenuato or
appear to make more henious the matter
tinder consideration. Finally, in discussing
tho necessity of an interpreter wo
got back to one apparently very small,
but at tho same time very important
upon which the government und
tho public at largo ought to bo thoroughly
informed and that ia tho Chinese wall
literature. Our dead walls aro covered
with documents upon tho sense of which
no ono in tho community has tho slightest
idea. They may bo prayers; they may be
innocent notices of sales and so forth, and
they may bo obscene or treasonable documents;
no one has any certainty upon tho
point. Now this is, certainly, a very
uncomfortable condition of affairs to livo
under, and we aro surprised that peoplo
havo consented to livo so long under such
conditions that thero has not been more
popular clamor upon the matter. The
subject has often been discussed in theso
columns during tho past year, first being
touched upon March 10th, and sinco then
being kept prominently before our readers.
This is something that is of vital
interest to every plantation owner and
business man in the country, and should
give food for reflection. Tho matter of
having n proper Chiueso interpreter is
