That groat Power gets what It can and

In Hawaii tho story of Gibraltar would b

to this British stronghold ns Spain looks
from San Boquo t Gibraltar
Shall there bo established with our ac
quiescence another Bermuda In tho Pacific
to match the Bermuda of the Atlantic and

To England Hawaii would bo an Im
mensely valuable link In tho chain that
binds her empire The islands are the first
and most Important station between tho
western terminus of her great military
railroad tho Canadian Pacific and both
Australia and India
c To us Hawaii Is the natural outpost In
the Paclllo of Americas system of na

Ships Available In the Pacific

Honolulu Her

value In keeping order there and In pro
a venting what might have been a bloody
race conflict in tho lato political crisis can
r not be overestimated
But the future of Hawaii is still to b de

various European nations hurrying to
Honolulu it Is well to know what wo havo
L h available for guarding American Interests
The Boston Is a steel protected cruiser of

The New Homo Rule Hill
By far the most Important and probably
time first measure to bo Introduced In tho
csslon of tho British Parliament which
begins today Is Mr GfcAlwTONrs now plan
of somllndcpondent government for Ire
land A synopsis of tho bill has Lon for
warded by cable nail vas printed In TiE
SUN on Sunday Wo defer a thorough study
of tho project until the full toxt Is before us
and until wo hear Mr GLADSTONKH Inter
polation of certain provisions which ns yet
seem obscure Meanwhile wo may direct
attention to some features of tho scheme
which indicate that tho speclesof autonomy
to bo offered to Ireland Is less extensive
than that enjoyed by one of our States and
hat ns regards tho stato of things existing
In the day of GHATFANS Parliament the
new regime involves In sOle respects a
higher mind In others a lower degree of in
dependence Thoro IA no doubt however
that the proposed legislative and admlnls
ratlve system mnkes larger concessions to
the Irish Nationalists than those embodied
In the bill of 18SG which II PAKNFrr was
willing to accept
I will bo observed that under the new
scheme the Irish Government can exorcise
exercso
control the Irish militia it
no over mltn can
make no laws affecting naturalization or
quarantine and it cannot nuthoilo any
banks of Issue In all these particulars it
ios a moro limited authority than Is pos
Besscd by ono of our State Governments I
Is also debarred from enacting any law re
lating to a regency Now in GHVTTASS
imo the Dublin Parliament refused to pass
an act Identical with tho regency law
framed by WILLIAM PITT with tho jesuit
that had not GIOIICIE III suddenly recov
ery his sanity his eldest son Mould have
been Invested In Ireland with functions
cry different from those which would have
ben delegated to him in England This
was one of the incidents which convinced
iirr that a separate uovonimcni inr Ire
land was unworkable nnd evidently Mr
GLADSToNE Is i determined to avoid this
source of possible embarrassment It will
also b remembered that GIIATTANH Parlia
ment had control of tho Irish militia and
volunteers so far as control could bo exor
cised by tho legislative when divorced from
the executive branch of government Leg i
islation In reaard to land also which per
tamed to GilATTANS Parliament and which
lies within tho competence of our Stato
Governments Is withheld for five years
from tho Dublin legislature but this Is to
assure tho execution of tho several land
purchase acts which now stand upon tho
statute book
Tho legislative power Is t b vested as It
s In the State of New York In two chambers
Tho upper House for the present is t con
sist of seventyfive elective members with
tho twentyeight who
peers now represent
Iho Irish peerage in the British House of
Lords but after tho expiration of thirty
years the places of tho twentyeight pOOlS
aro to b vacated and filled with elective
members A relatively high property qual
ification Is required for those citizens who
arc to tko part in electing members of tho
upper House and I still higher qualiflcntlon
for those who are to bo deemed eligible for
membership Similar provisions in regard
t the State Senato obtained in the State of
New York for some forty years after the
adoption of our first Stnto Constitution
The popular branch of tho Irish legislature
Is to consist of 204 members or double the
number of Irelands present representatives
nt Westminster except that tho
tUt represen
tation Trinity College Dublin two mem
bers remains tho BHIIIU The parliamentary
franchise is unaltered Tho two chambers
will sit bcpaiatcly nail lu the case
of a disagreement which cannot bo
Betted by a reference t a joint committee
thu specific question nt issue may bo re
ferred to tho people Whether this application
cation of tho Swiss referendum Is duo to
Mr GLADSTONE himself or to Mr liuvci
who Is said t havo boon largely concerned
In tho formulation of tho bill it is shrewdly
designed to propltiato tho Irish Unionists
without alienating tlio Irish Nationalists
for it assures t tho UnioniSts nn appeal to
tho sober second thought of tho people
while at the same time It gives to time
Nationalists tho vantage of tho nunicrlcn
majority upon which they can usually
count As to Irelands representation at
Wcbtmlnbtor this tate remain at its present
figure 103 but tho same men may bo re
turned if tho constituencies 10 desire t
tho Imperial Parliament and to tho Irish h
legislature Wo should add that tho 28
Irish representative peers will continue to
Bit In tho House of Lords Au attempt is
made In a clause of tho bill to define explicitly
plicitly and exclusively the questions on
which Irish members of the British House
of Commons may bo allowed to vote Tn
this which Is ono of the crucial points of
the scheme we shall return hereafter
Now for tho particulars In respect of
which tho now bill must bo pronounced a
decided improvement tho measure which
met with Mr PAKNULLS approval Tho
Irish Government ISlt the end of five
years to have exclusive control of the Irish
judiciary except tho Exchequer division of
the High Court of Justice vacancies in
which are to bo filled by time Crown on the
joint recommendation of the Lord Lleuton
out of Ireland and tho Lord Chancellor of
Grout Britain The Dublin metropolitan
police Is not t remain permanently under
the Lord Lieutenant but only for 0 period
of live years or until tho Irish Admlntstra
ton shall establish an adequato substitute
Moreover tho Dublin
Dulln legislature may pro
vide for tho formation of a police force in
all Irish counties and boroughs t b un
der tho control of tho local authorities and
apparently though tho telegraphic synop
sis Is somewhat vague on this point this
force is t bo ultimately substituted for the
Royal Irish constabulary Finally tho share
of tho Imperial burdens which Ireland must
bear is only half as large a the quota t
which Mr PABNELI > assented I the cue
tome and excise duties collected In Ireland
by the Imperial Government exceed the
fixed amount which that country U t con
1
t
ti but t the Imperial revenue the excess
must b turned over to the Irish Govern
mont To appreciate what this may mean
should Ireland become prosperous wo need
only consider how Immensely tho State of
Now York would profit If It had a right t
all that part of the customs and excise du
ties levied within Ito territory In excess of
It tes proportionate contribution to the Fed
eral revenue
lu ono vital rcsncct tho now mcaMire
like tho bill of 18SC represents a vast nd
anco upon GKATTAXS Parliament A
hundred years ago the Irish executive was
In no sonso res responsible to the Irish legls
aturo Now tho Lord Lieutenant of Ire
and like tho Viceroy of tho Dominion of
Canada will govern through Ministers
directly accountable to tho Dublin Icglsla
uro A veto power Is reserved to the
Crown as It Wn pwer 1880 and wo are told
that controversies regarding constitutional
questions will bo referred to tho Judicial
ommlttco of tho Imperial Privy Council
Vo must wait for Mr GLADSTONES exposl
ton of his project to learn on whoso advice
ho veto power will bo exorcised and
whether In time Judicial Committee of tho
Privy Council Ireland Is to b represented
In proportion to her population
Tho friends of Ireland who are not holy
satisfied with the now scheme should com
pare It clause by clause with tho measure
proposed seven years ago Then let them
ask themselves whether any larger 1m
irovemcnts on tho bill of 1880 would have
any chance of being ratified In tho present
louse of Commons where a change of lei
linn twenty votes from one side to the
thor would extinguish Mr GLADSTONES
narrow majority
Protect the Pnrlcs
For moro than thirty years the public
parks of Now York have been planned and
undo and their affairs administered for tho
mOHt hart under the Inlliionco of the same
wise and experienced understanding
lint In Iii began the Central Pnik As
heir territory bus expanded there has
grown UD In tho community nn admiration
of their beauty and an appreciation of their I
sentiment that liltheito has stood as a do I
enco ngainst their diversion to foreign
Ideas and purposes or to Irresponsible and
conlllctlug Interests This barrier appears
to havo been overthrown Tho Trustees of
time American Museum of Natural History
mvo succeeded in overriding tho plO
test of tho artistic director of tho parks
and in getting placed in their own I
lands tho determination of n question In
volving an nrehttoctuial addition to tho
rnrks of the largest magnitude It docs
not rightfully belong there nor evidently
could it bo nor has It been properly deter
mined thcro
Them is a serious public outrage not to
say vital injury to the parks contained In
time existing plans for adding to tho
niiseum lu Manhattan square They
should bo withdrawn and tho situation
approached unow with duo repaid for tho
several points of public Interest that have
lwen unfortunately suppressed front con

Counsellors to the legislature I
In an article on legal ignoranco nt Al I
auy our esteemed contemporary tho I
Brooklyn Knglr says that a capnblo lawyer
who would scrutinize every bill to be intro
duced in tho Loglblatttro before it wm
offered could save mill timo for the Sen
ate and Assembly as well as for tho Governor
and the courts and then
ernor cOlrts speaking
of the aid afforded by ono of tho members
of the Statutory Revision Commission in
this rspect It says Tho service which
Prof CoLLix renders to tho State because
of his familiarity with its Constitution is
appreciated by lawyers I by no one else
In making this statement vro think tho
Eagle which is usually well informed nail
wise hnsovei looked two notable perform
ances of the Statutory Revision Commis
sion of which Prof CHAHLVS A COLLIN of
Ithaca is tho most prominent member
Tho Legislature of 1892 repealed the law
against holding court on election day with
out knowing that they wero repealing it
This was done through the agency of tho
Satutory Revision Commissioners Tho
fact of tho jepeal was so carefully kept from
tho public that as late as tho fourth day of
October lust the Court of Appeals handed
down a decision in language which unmis
takably bhowed that tho Judges of that tri
bunal supposed tho statute still to be in
forco although If fact It had been repealed
months before
At tho Instance of tho same Commission
with Prof COLLIN nt its head the Legisla
ture of 1892 repealed the statute which has
been in force hal a century providing I
summary proceeding before a Supremo
Curt Justice to compel an outgoing public
officer to deliver over tho books ami papers
of tlio office to his successor This repeal
passed unnoticed until an attempt was
made to proceed under tho statute In the
Long Island City Mayoralty contest when
it vifis discovered that the law had ben
abrogated by tho enactment of the Public
Oflicors law of 1892 Tho
Onkorl summary pro
ceeding to obtain olllclnl books and papers
from a person usurping a public ofllco Is as
Important it over was and wo do not bo
hove that the Legislature really intended
to abolish remedy which tho
Ibolsh a legal pub
lic nt largo as dlbtlngulshud from private
litigants hnvo so vital an Interest
Theso examples of what has recently been
accomplished through tho Inlliionco of per
Sons who Bland in tho position of legal
counsellor to tho Legislature aro moro
suggestive of tho ovll than of the good
which would bo done by permanent oflicors
exorcising such functions
Learning the Language
Wo assure that distinguished prelate
Mgr SATOILT tho immediate representa
tive of Pope LEO XIII that ho can very
quickly learn t speak tho English Ian
guugc which ho desires t make use of nt
times In this country From onethird to
onehalt of all tho words employed by ordi
nary Engllbh writers aro of Latin origin
iinil even if TVO have bomowhnt changed
the Indent form or bound of ninny of thcsi
words they aro bllll apprehensible by any
Latlnlst and wo think that Italians espc
dailyItalians of learning can acqiilio a
knowledge of tho English composite speed
far moro readily than It can bo acquired bj
people whoso native parlance is radically
unlike the English
Wo do not doubt for example that it Is
within the power of Mgr SATOLLI to learn
to speak and road English very well within
thrco months from the limo of his begin
ning I wo had tho leisure to put him
through his drill wo should like to do It
I is singular that so small a proportion
of our Italian immigrants mako Imsto to
learn the language of this country but
prefer to live hero under very grave dlsad
vantages Wo advise them to tackle our
speech I they want to get alone well
They will smile with happiness when they
notice that so very many of our words bar
a family resemblance t their own The
English words are not always a molt
luoua M their Italian but
luol te ltan ooogenon iro
cant help that Tho ancestors of the
English were mero barbarians to the
tomans at tho time when the ancestors of
our Italians were enjoying tho elegant
numbers of VrnoiLius
It Is singular that whllo BO many of
our Italian Immigrants aro negligent of
English nearly nil our Jewish liiiMlgrnnts
trlvij t master It as soon a possible after
they como hero though tho learning of It
s very hard to people whoso native tongue
Is Hebrew Not only tho younger persons
of tho Jewish Immigration begin to grapple
with English upon hell arrival but
likewise men ot all ages nnd pursuits
amid thero are scores upon scores of evening
lasses and of garret or basement private
night schools in which grayhaired Jewish
veterans from eastern Europe can bo Reel
nhirg tliolr first lessons In English pro
nunciation and spelling anti reading and
writing These astute people aro aware
hat It Is advantageous to understand tire
language of the land where they dwell

raulnc alone either of the great uptown
venues one cannot help noticing the beautiful
display of orchid flowers In the florist win
tiows A dozen years ago err few of timee
I orgeous llossoms found tholr way to the city
oriels ThoRo then grown In the country were
mostly connned to prhato conservatories and
tho ntirsorymon ns Such of Now Jor er and
iaulot Washlncton who dealt In orchids ro
used to cut tho flowers host doing so should
detract from flit sale nf tho plant Now how
I over this order ot things has chanced and
rchld blossoms havo become ns much a ita
I ide > commodity In tho florist shops In tho
noro fashionable parts of tho city ns have
rote or carnations only In smaller qttantl
thee Tho aunntlty however Is I only limited
by time production of tho growers every bios
om raised of do lrnblo kinds can bo sold at n
air price At this time ot tho year tho supply
Is not equal to the demand rot thoro Is no call
for Insignificant varieties
or poor or InplJnlcnnt nletol
1oslorman or Long Island Blobrecht it

Itchcr and Manila and Do Forest of Now Jer
sey are among the largest growers of orchids
for market and besides those Mar Asmus
Taylor and several other successful rose crew
era around Now York havo also started Into I
the business of growing orchids
In private greenhouses all manner ot or
child nro grown variety being one of tho
ilotsuren of tho connoisseur Not so with the
florists who raise orchid flower for market
They restrict their selection to easily Brown
reobloomlng wlntorflowcrlni kinds that
mvo largo showy blossoms and this Is why
while time display ot orchids In tho florists
window is gay tho variety Is i limited Just
now It consist largely ot Cattleua Trianit and

bio as small pot plqnts to arrange among

ot Ucrloauup ciiftata are very pretty but the
bloom wilt noon and an specimens In f flower
ho ulants have too aunt an appearance to be
pleasing Time calanthcs above mentioned
are now deciduous and only fit for cut
lowers lutattf Xkinnrrt Is used cut and as
plants In about the same way as are cyprlpo
Hums Jifnilrobinin inltannm U In good
bloom and n few of tho earliest mobile havo
appeared half ot time stems are cut with those
flowers They mire usod for baskets Species
like cltru otvjrini and Farinrrt are used among

Inc enough for market flowers
Among oncldlums riricninm Is past t but

Among odontoglossums iritpnm or Alfian
Inr as It Is commonly called Is the most
esteemed of the genus only I few have yet
appeared but In n week or two they will be
moro plentiful Bo highly this orchid ap
preciated in the market that one of tho most
extensive growers his resolved to add a few
more thousands of it to his collection for cut
flowers for market Although these com
prise the most popular orchids other species
1 Vaiida Scltninliurgkia Epidendrum Vum
tiidimtmim llarktria and Anaraeum are cut and
brought to market as they olen
liy Intelligent manipulation the florists are
enabled to havo their orchids In bloom a
month or two earlier or later just as they
wish for Instance by extra warmth and hur
rying tho growth of Vjpripetlium inlgne In
winter nnd spring It can be had In bloom In
October or by cool treatment tho blooming
time may bo deferred till the end of January
Orchid blossoms are usod for almost every
purposo for which the bast kinds of other flow
ers are employed Lovely hand and corsage
liouqucts are made of them the finest kind of
ublo decorations aro arranged with them and
ho richest baskets filled or trimmed with
them and they aro usod even In funeral deco
rations Asiiniajna plniiwfui commonly called
fernleaf asparagus Is tho green that Is put
with them because Its beauty rich effect and
lasting qualities on time other hand maiden
hair fern fronds because of their juick wilting
are not associated with orchid blossoms
At weddings receptions and at other times
when there Is opportunity for elaborato floral
display orchids play an Important part both
plants In bloom and cut flowers can then be
used to fine advantage Tho plants mar bo
banked among ferns mosses and palms on
mantels or elsewhere time heavrhablted
species as of cyprlpedlum and lyeaste kept
pretty well down to the ground line and the
airy sprayblossomed oncldlums and phnlro
nooses raised moro prominently Into view
drown in neat woodencabin baskets or In
comparatively nmall pots and with good foli
age time plants can bo sot < o display time blos
soms to bettor advantage and in a bolter and
moro natural and elegant way than the cut
flowers could he arranged and there Is I less
likelihood of the blossoms wilting by reason
of tIme heat gas or draughts In tlio rooms or
for want of water Time pots or baskets are
hidden among green ferns airy pains or
other suitable plants or among cut fronds of
fernluaf asparagus The vivid masilvnlllaa
airy oneldiums chaste ojontoslossums and
elegant phahrnopsos make up beautifully In
this wav and so too do tho bolder cattleyas
ami dendroblums Individual flowers mas
challiando not make much show alone but In
quantity they am lovely The heavy racemes
nf paccolabiums are difficult to keep erect and
In proper place without stilting them the
clutters of trlchonllia spread out In drooping
fashion over time sides of the pot and the bios
AOIUB of dondrochllum hang perpendicularly
In long chalnllko racemes from the ends ol
hard wiry ptems In fact any kind of hand
some orchids of which there are only a few
can bo used as pot plants In a bed of greenery
ttlth ploaeing effect whereas were their bios
Bums used us cut flowers
they would have a
meagre appearance
Considering rare and beautiful orchids
are and how limited Is their supply the prices
of thorn mire not exorbitantly high Cattleyas
hillas and cyprlpedlums are Bold for to much
an individual flower say CO cents for a unfit
bloom W > cents to SlDO for each cottleyu bios
som and about 20 cents to 85 cents torn
cyprlpodlum Much depends on the clearness
size form substance and nhowlnrBb of the
blossoms The general public do not dis
criminate in cut flowers between the bloom of
a priceless unique variety and that of a com
monpluco species their choice in the loneliest
blossom no matter what la the value of the
plant from which It has been out Orchids
that bloom In sprays for Instance calanthes
odontoglossums oncldlums and phalamopsos
cost so much a spray fay from 75 cents to
3fiO according sIze fulness and Oneness
of the spray and n good deal will depend
upon the kind For Instance a stem cml
DriiJiolium llimmimm will cost more thane
calantho with the same number of flowers or
it and a iilmltunopsls will cost more than an
oncldlura Sprays of orchids mar average
from 10 or 13 cents to 25 or M cents a bloom
while Ihiilanopsls and tins Alexandra odonto
clossutiift may run alltllo higher
It would hardly be fair to compare the
prices of orchids with the prices of roses car
nations lilies and other standard flowers bv
cause of the frequent and often wide varltv
tlons In the prices of these caused by apply
and demand A little warm sunny wMthw

of the commission men In time ease of or
chids the large growers make permanent ar

but the small growers who have only 11 fow

Florists propagate nail plant n fresh stock of 4

boar finer blossoms than dn the old ones This

cinerarias are treated like annuals and raised
from seed every year hyacinths tulips

grown on the annual system that Is fresh
roots are Imported for forcing every season
and as soon as the flowers are out from them
ho roots are dumped Into time rot pile for It
wouldnt par the florist to grow them on
another year Ireoslns aro an exception to
his rule however Even azaleas cytisus and
lydrangoas are easily raised from cuttings
and the supply Is I always just as plentiful as
he florist chooses to make It sometimes
however large plants of azalea are scarce
butthls Is simply question of ago
With orchids however all Is i different The
old plants are perpetual and time greatest
diligence Is exorcised In prolonging their life
Cyprlpcdlums are propagated by division
dendroblums by division or cuttings of the
nature stems and calanthos by multlpllca
lon of time pseudo bulbs and yet orchid
cannot be propagated with the came facility
as other popular plants Indeed their in
crease by artificial moans Is exceedingly
slow The supply Is maintained by heavy
importations from Central and South America
this East Indies and other countries where

must forever prevent tlio prices of orchids de
