The Past nnd Present of the
New Ocean Republic of Hrnvnli.
Hnrry Hall, In Pttsburg Times.
Capt. Cook and President Cleveland
are the two men who probably had
most to do with bringing Hawaii prom
inently before the attention of the
world. There was nearly 120 years be
tween the periods to which they fig
ured, and their lines of operation var
ied widely. But, nevertheless, what
they did fixed this group of lslans in
the Pacific ocean in the public mind.
Although Capt. Cook, on January 18,
discovered the Islands, where, on his
return visit, he met his death at the
hands of the natives, on February 14,
1779, It seems to be almost certain that
one Juan Gaetano, a Spanish naviga
tor, saw Hawaii In 1555. A group of
Islands, the largest of whloh was called
La Hesa. was laid down In. the old
Spanish charts In the same latitude
as the Hawaiian Islands, but 30 de
grees too far east
For seven years after the death of
Capt. Cook, no foreign vessels ventured
to touch at the Island. After that
time, many of the vessels engaged In
the fur trade on the northwest coast
of America called there for supplies,
or ran down there to spend the winter.
Firearms, powder and shot were tho
articles most In demand among the
natives. Capt. George Vancouver
made three visits to Hawaii during his
survey of the northwest coast of Amer
ica in 1792 to 1794. He uniformly re
fused to sell firearms or ammunition to
the chiefs, but gave them useful plants
and seeds, and presented Kamehameha,
the king who became master of the Isl
and of Hawaii by the assassination
of his rival In 1791, with the first cattle
and sheep ever landed In the island,
and shee) ever landed In the Islands.
CIVIL WARS AND DISEASE.
About this period, civil wars between
the three petty sovereignities rent the
island and brought great disasters to
the people. The decrease in the pop
ulation was very rapid. -A11 those who
visited the island between 1792 and 1801
were strongly Impressed with the mis
ery of the common people and their
rapid decrease In numbers. This was
partly the result of wart), but was still
more due to the diseases and vices
brought in by foreigners. Botany Bay
convicts had Introduced the art of dls-
f tilling liquor before the year 1800, and
drunkenness had become very preva
lent. In tho summer of 1804 tho chol
era carried off one-half of the pop
ulation of Oahu. The religious system
of the ancient Hawallans consisted In
a great measure of nature worship.
All the powers of nature, especially
those that, aro mysterious and terrlbls
were conceived of as living an'd spirit
ual beings. Thus the volcano, the
thunder, the whirlwind, the meteor
and the shark were- feared as being
either the embodiment of the work of
malevolent spirits. The four great
gods, Karac, Kamaloa, Ku and Lono,
who were worshipped throughout Hon
olulu, originally belonged to this class.
Pele, the dread goddess of volcano3,
and her numerous family, dwelt In the
crater of Kalauea, but also caused the
eruption of Manua Loa and Hunlalal.
In 1819 Idolatory was abolished, and
the idols and tempels wero burned
throughout the' Island.
ARIUVAL OF MISSIONARIES.
Th'o first American missionaries ar
rived' In 1820. They soon reduced the
language to writing, and printed the
first book in 1822. They found the Ha-
Carpets, Draperies and Wall Papers,
419 Lacka. Ave.
wallan an amiable and highly recep
tive race, eager for knowledge and
cosily Influenced for good or evil. The
first whale ship called at Honolulu In
1820, and was ,eoon followed by many
others, the number, reaching 100 per
year, and the furnishing of supplies for
them became tho chief resource of the
Island, as tho sandal wood, the trade
In which had been very great, was
Tho history of tho Islands for tho
next 40 or 60 years was but series of
troubles with foreign nations. Franco
and England seemed determined to
eelzo every opportunity to mako trou
ble. The succession to tho throne was
often 'accompanied by riots and foreign
governments, among them the United
States, had frequently to Intcrfero to
preserve order. King Kalakaua, died
In California while on a visit to th
United States In 1891, and jsvas succeed
ed by his sister, the notorious LUluo
kalanl. The revolution of 1803 which
drove her from the throne, the treaty
of annexlatlon negotiated by President
dent Harrison and withdrawn by Presi
dent Cleveland, together with the fnll
ura of tlio letter's attempts to restore
the monlarchy, are facts too well known
to need repetition. The present re
public of Hawaii was formerly pro
claimed July 4, 1894. Sanford B. Dole,
tho son of an American missionary,
is the president of the ocean republic.
The Hawaiian Islands are situated In
the North Paolflo ocean, between long
itudes' 1B4 and 1C0 degrees west nnd
latitudes 22 and 18 degrees north, nnd
are about 2,100 miles distant from San
Francisco. They are thus on the very
edge of tho tropics, but their position
In mid-ocean and the constant north
east trade winds glve3 them a climate
unequaled by any other portion of tho
globe, a. perpetual summer without an
enervating heat. In the Hawaiian Isl
ands Americans and Europeans can
work In the open air In nil seasons of
the year, as they cannot in countries
lying In the same latitude elsewhere.
For Instance, Calcutta, India, lies a lit
tle to the north of the latitude ot
Kauai, the most northerly Island, and
In Calcutta the American and European
can only work with his brain: hard
physical labor he cannot do nnd live.
On the Hawaiian Islands he can work
and thrive. On the Island of Hawaii
ho can get any climate from the heat
of summer to actual winter at the sum
mits of the two great mountains. A
meteorological record gives 89 degrees
as tho highest and Ct degrees as the
lowest temperature, a mean tempera
ture of 71 degrees for the year. A
case of sunstroke has never been
known. Tho islands ore outside the cy
clone belt, and severe storms accom
panied by thunder and lightning are of
rare occurence. Tho climate Is
healthy, with no virulent fevers, and
epidemics seldom visit the Island. Such
diseases as pneumonia and diphtheria
are almost unknown.
For practical purposes there are
eight Islands in the Hawaiian group.
These are Nllhau, Kauai, Oahu, Holo
kal, Lanal, Kahoolawe, Maul, and Ha
waii. They vary In area, Kahoolawe
being the smallest with 68 square miles,
and Hawaii, with 4,210 square miles,
the largest. Their total area is 0,740
square miles. Hawaii, Maul, Oahu
and Kauai are 'the Islands on which
coffee, fruits, potatoes, corn and vege
tables can be laised. Hawaii has nu
merous sugar plantations, ranging from
'those with 200,000 trees to those ot but
an acre or so. Honolulu, the capital,
Is on Oahu. It is a city of 30,000 Inhabi
tants, wMh electric lights, telephones
and street cars. There are three even
ing dally papers, one dally rooming
paper and two weeklies published In
English, together with newspapers In
the Hawaiian, Portuguese, Japanese
and Chinese languages. A line of rail
road has been constructed along the
coast, to a distance of 30 miles from
the city, and It Is proposed to continue
It completely around the Island.
The mainstay of the Hawaiian Isl
ands has for the last 35 years been the
sugar Industry. The produotlon In
1896 was 221,000 tons. Pice yields two
crops per year. It requires working In
marshy lands, and none but the Chin
amen can raise It successfully. The
main staple after sugar and rice Is
coffee. Hundreds and thousands of
trees have been planted within tho last
five years. This Is essentially the crop
of the future and bids fair to become
as Important a staple as sugar. Cof
fee does not require the amount of cap
ital that sugar does, and can be worked
renumeratlvely upon a small area. It
Is estimated that in four years a 75
acre coffee plantation will more than
pay the running expenses while after
that a return of $8,000 to $10,000 per
year may be realized.
Bananas, limes and oranges can be
cultivated to advantage. At present
the banana trade amounts to over
100,000 bunches per annum. Corn Is
also raised for feed on the plantations.
Cattle and swine are profitably raised,
and green and sweet corn, Irish and
sweet potatoes, cabbages, tomatoes,
beans, lettuce, radishes and other vege
tables, all of the finest quality and1 in
tho greatest profusion, together with
strawberries and raspberries, can te
had every day In the year.
The population of the Island by the
census of 1S90 was 89,991. A census Is
now being taken, the estimate of which.
Is 107,000. These are decided as fol
lows: Hawallans, 35 000; part Ha
wallans, 10,000; Chinese, 15,000; Japan'
ese, 24,000; Portuguese, 9,000; Ameri
can and European, 14,000.
Fifty-two vessels, aggregating 21,
678 tons burden, fly the Hawaiian flag,
Of these 23 are steamers, 5 barks, 3
ships, and 21 schooners and sloops. The
exports in 1895 amounted to $8,474,138,
and the Imports to $5,339,785. Of the
exports $7,975,590 were eaccredlted tosu
gar. Of the Imparts $4,121,920 came from
the Pacific ports of the United States,
and $314,399 from the Atlantlo ports, a
total of $4,516,319, leaylng but $1,191,698
for every other nation hat the coun
try has commercial relations with.
In polnt'of fact, taking exports and
Imports, the business done by the Ha
waiian Islands In 1895 with all Its com
mercial relations, amounted to $14,
188,155; of this sum $12,908,508 vaa done
with the United States, which amounts
to 91 per cent of the whole business
of the islands. What other country In
the world has 91 per cent, of Its com
mercial relations with Its neighbors.
Tho public debt of January 1, 1896,
was $3,764,335, or about $34 per capita.
All males between the ages of 20 and
60 pay an annual pell tax of $1, road
tax of $2 and school tax of $2, a total
of $5. Land and personal property pay
a tax of 1 per cent on the cash value.
The direct taxes yielded In 1895 $592,
691; customes revenues, $547,149, and li
censes, etc., $600,244, a total of $1,740,-
For four years, in oplte of hostile in
fluences from without and enemies at
home the little republic of Hawaii, the
latest addition to the family of nations,
has maintained pea'ce and order, ad
ministered Justice, carried on' exten
sive Internal Improvements, advanced
education and kept its financial credit
above par in the markets of the world.
J It may bo said to bo really the off-
spring ot tho decendants of Americans
who. have recently made these islands
.their home's. These earnestly desire
annexation to the United States, nnd
there are many "reasons,- both political
and military, why Hawa.ll should be
come, If not an Integral part, at least
a colony of the Greater Republic, Tho
fact that Its population Is so badly
mixed, 17-2l8ts being Polynesian, Chin
ese and Japanese, Is the most embar
rassing feature of the cose. People such
aa these are not fitted for American
citizenship, but the problem, while a
difficult one, Is not beyond) solution,
and it does not seem a wild prophesy
to predict that destiny must at no dis
tant date bring Hawaii under the
Stars and Stripes.
