HAWAIIAN GAZETTE, TUESDAY. JANUARY if 1889.
EST MODUS IX RKBt'S.
gSlS: TUESDAY. : : JANUARY 1, 1889.
WHERE IS HENRY M- STANLEY
Xews from the lieroic explorer is still
.waited for. Now that his lot is so close
ly linked with that of the brave and
faithful Emin Pasha, Germany and Eng
land, as well as America, wait for intelli
gence with an anxious interest, unequal
led since Gordon's fate hung on Wolse
ley's belated expedition to Khartoum.
Stanley left Yambuya, his last camp on
the Congo navigation,, on the 2Sth of
June, 1SS7. He had to traverse an un
known region to AVadclai on lake Albert
Nyanza. This was live hundred miles
distant in a straight line. The last word
from lnin was dated July 19th, three
weeks later. For seventeen months the
outer world has had no word from him.
But neither has any intelligence come
from Erain since November 2d, 18S7.
The depths of the Dark Continent are
not given to transmitting intelligence.
Sir Samuel Baker was not heard from
for twenty-nine months, and he had
four steamers with him on the Nile
.Two uncertain reports had transpired,
however. The latest and most definite
was by Arab traders who are said to
have encountered Stanley's rearguard
in November, 1887, some two hundred
and twenty miles west of Wadelai. He
was said to have two hundred and fifty
men remaining out of the four hundred
with which he started from Yambuya,
and to be confident of getting through
in a short time. The other report came
by way of Khartoum on the Nile. A
"White Pasha" was known by general
report throughout the Nile basin, to be
fighting his way down the Bahr-el-Gazal.
Nearly all the best authorities agree in
the belief that such a report could arise
from nothing else than the progress of
Stanley's powerful force through the in
terior. The name "White Pasha" would
the more naturally be given to the com
mander of fifty white men.
In the December number of the North
American Review, js a symposium of
four articles upon Stanley's whereabouts,
written- by Lord Wolseloy and three
other specialists upon African matters.
They show a remarkable coincidence of
opinion. They all agree that Stanley is
Ihc" White Pasha"; all think that" he
probably joined hands with Emin early
in the present year, and all consider his
return and communications to be seri
ously impeded. He must lack force and
means for returning over the difficult
Congo route. The Dervisli 'jower on the
Nile route must be too formidable for
any attack in which Emin and Stanley
can unite. The remaining route to the
Eastern coast has for a year been
blocked by hostile tribes, and lately the
whole interior of that coast has broken
into violent hostilities in consequence of
There appears therefore to be cause for
almost as much anxiety as to how Stan
ley is to emerge from the interior, as
even to learn how he fared in reaching
Emin. The latter, resolute chief of the
Soudan that he is, repels all thought of
forsaking his post. Stanley is rich in
experience and resource. Unless his
rare skiiywd courage now fail to bring
his wonted good fortune, we shall in due
time hail his reappearance with a fresh
chapter of great adventures hardly sur
passed by his' immortal transit down the
Since the above was written, the Ma
riposa brings an apparently reliable" re
port that Emin has been defeated and
made captive by the Mahdi, and "with
him a traveler who is probably Stanley.
The latter would, of course, have stood
by Emin, and have shared his fate. The
calamitous condition of those two heroes
appeals loudly to the Christian nations
for succor. What can be done for them,
and what will be done, are questions for
whose answer we must anxiously wait.
HOME ROLE HERE AND ELSEWHERE.
Home rule has of late years been a
familiar term to all readers of the public
prints wherever the English language is
known. The "home rule" movement
inaugurated by Mr. Gladstone and others
has made the politics of the British
Islands almost revolutionary. With the
merits of the question we have nothing
cow to do. The big heads of the empire
on which the sun never sets will doubt
less arrive at a satisfactory solution of
the problem in the course of time. The
question is interesting to us only in so
far as it shows some of the results of free
popular discussion. Whatever comes
out of the movement, good or badmust
be credited to the full and exhaustive
and often acrimonious discussion to
which its even' detail has been sub
jected. Another feature of the contest, worth
noting, is the terrible ordeal of vitupera
tion and abuse to which the leaders on
both sides have had to submit. Public
men have certainly been handled with
more merciless abuse than they have
experienced in the discussion of any
other public question for many years. It
.is really matter of wonder that English
statesmen, honored and admired by the
people heretofore, have not become dis
gusted with tho wranglings of the poli
tical arena and left home rule and every
other kind of rule to adjust themselves
as best they can. The epidermis of an
English parliamentarian is evidently
composed of very tough fibre. The com
ensation of members of Parliament in
England is nil as regards the dross after
which other men are usually in eager
pursuit. They are supposed to hike their
pay out in honor, a currency in which
the dear public often rewards them after
a curious fashion.
Public life in Great Britain is not a
bed ot roses. Nor does it seem to.be a
place of very sweet repose in the Hawai
ian Islands. We, too, have had our
home rule agitation. Man for man it
has been to us a struggle as intensely in
teresting as it is to the subjects oi the sea
girt realm of the other hemisphere. We
are smaller in dimensions and numbers
than they, but we think great thoughts.
Our home rule was keenly debated in
the legislature and out of it years before
the " grand old man" of English politics
launched, his scheme. The question
with us is settled. We have secured, at
least on paper, what we proposed to our
selves as a panacea for all our political
ills a free, independent and representa
tive legislative body and a Ministry res
ponsible to the representatives of the
people, and not to the King. As in
England, our public men have been and
are still subjected to the fiery ordeal of
merciless criticism and reckless abuse.
If certain well known aspirants have
their way a terrible fate awaits our
Nobles and Representatives in 1890.
Whether they aroid be beheaded, flayed
alive or denuded and consigned to the
mosquitos does not seem to have been
definitely settled as yet. It is to be
hoped that the gentlemen in charge of
the arrangements will give their victims
some intimation of the fate in store for
them. This is a privilege not denied
even the criminal when he is turned
over to the .executioner. If there is to be
a slaughter, it would be no more tlian
the impulses of humanity call for, that
our public men be apprised of the parti
cular form of immolation by which their
career shall come to a close. But these
worthies whose dreams are full -of poli
tical scalps hanging about their wigwams
in 1S90 may wake up and find themselves
famous but disappointed on discovering
that electoral axes are sometimes forged
to cut both ways.
THAT ROAD UP PUNCHBOWL.
A good many of our citizens are dis
posed to regard any expenditure for the
improvement of Punchbowl as an ex
travagance. We regret to sec that our
evening contemporary seems to join in
this view. We should like to unite with
him in what seems to us a measure of
enlightened-public spirit, and to push for
an early expenditure of the $8,000 appro
priated by the Legislature for a drive
way to the summit. We know of no city
so peculiarly favored as Honolulu in the
possession of an elevated tract of some
three hundred acres right in its center,
which is impossible to utilize for business
or for residences. Nature has conse
crated Punchbowl hill inviolably, to im
provement and adornment as a park for
the recreation and icfreshment of the
growing popufction whose streets and
dwellings are clustering far around its
base. The groves already climbing its
rugged buttresses foretell the forest
wealth which" is to adorn the network of
paths yet to be cut over the whole of the
now naked rock slopes.
What both literally and metaphori
cally lifts this high above all other city
parks, is the elevation of a large part of
its area from four to five hundred feet
above the city. People are so used to
seeing this wonderful hill "in their midst
that they entirely overlook its capabil
ities. No doubt a good many of our citi
zens regard Punchbowl as a deformity
and a nuisance. They seem to think
that Nature committed a very trouble
some blunder some thousands of years
ago in ejecting such an unsightly pile of
brown cinders to render useless so large
a share of the valuable plains of Hono
lulu, otherwise worth half a million, more
or less, for town lots. But this great ele
vation of this area which forbids most of
us to frequent it as wo would delight to
do, is also its chiefest attraction. One
there gets quite above this lower sphere
of strife and care. The atmosphere is a
new one, fresh, invigorating. The world
lies glorious at one's feet nay a verita
ble new world of plain, glen, mountain,
green mead, blue ocean, bay and silver
strand a wide panorama of beauty and
magnificence, stretching into the dim
distance. By the ascent of Punchbowl,
one gains in a large measure that pre
cious" boon of change of scene and clim
ate, which is the best medicine for worn
bodies and tired nerves. It certainly is
a great thing that the possibility of mak
ing so radical a change of air and scene
and one so invigorating, can easily be
put within the reach of the people' of
Honolulu in a few minutes' drive. It is
now, to most persons, practically inac
cessible. Only those who least need it
are likely to face the rugged climb of five
hundred feet. The weary and feeble
who would be most benefited by the
change are debarred. To such especi
ally, the drive to that grand outlook will
be an inestimable benefit.
As a 'matter of financial economy, we
hold that the proper and efficient im
provement of Punchbowl should take rank
above that of .any other park or similar
nublic improvement for the comfort of
the city. Such improvements add very
largely to the value of real estate in their
vicinity. Good administration of the
public finances demands a reasonable
expenditure for such purposes, as well as
tor those of mere utility so-called:
