SATURDAY OCT 19 1895
UNPABAIiLEIiliED TACTICS
Por two or three dajB thoro have
ybeon rumors along the water front
that there was funny business going
on with tho light house department
The story ran that tho lights were
extinguished aftor certain hours
but having juBt a little faith left in
Mr Doles government wo could
not credit that in their insane fear
they would tamper with tho system
of lights depended upon by our inter-island
steamers and the ocean
mail carriers
Our sleuths have investigated and
find that for over two weeks the
grooa range light has not been light
ed much to tho annoyance of our
island steamers one of which tho
James Makee was forced to remain
outside for several hours We also
understand that tho Mariposa fail
ing to pick up the light had to
stand out into the Molokai channel
until daylight
Our system of lights is published
in navigators books and on charts
and the lights are depended upon
by those who go down to the sea
in ships and nothing but unavoid
able accident should interfero with
their lighting Maritime law de
mands that any contemplated
change in light house service or
buoys should be advertised for suf
ficient period to give notice to the
world of such changes
The President of the Board of
Health with his well known regard
for the proprieties of his office ban
said that the light was extinguished
to prevent island steamers from
slipping into port during quaran
tine but as the light was burning
up to two weeks ago and quaran
tine has been raised our sleuth was
not satisfied with this oxcuso for so
grave a step ono that endangered
lives and property
Tho pilot boat crows have said
that thoy wore suro of all night in
as tho pilots bad been instructed
not to board vessels off tho harbor
at night until further orders
This conflict of statements loads
us to believe that tho filibuster scaro
is responsible for the tampering
with the range lights to our harbor
and tho query arises whether mari
time powers may not properly take
exception to the pauioky condition
of tho best government those isl
ands over had
Following precedents in litiga
tion as to rights of porsons tho
maritime powers might ask that a
guardian be appointed to tako
ohargo of tho affairs of Mr Stevens
government
CANNOT BR IGNOIIED
Tho dissatisfaction whioh has ox
istod among tho Japauoso residents
hero for a considerable poriod has
at last takou practical form in moot
ings momorial and protests
Tho official missionary organ
tries to make light of tho mattor
and puts off tho complaints of th
Japauoso iu an off hand manner
by taking its refuge in tho storoo
tvpoP phrase tho first allosiatico of
of this country is duo to the United
States
Wo havo nevor yot boeu aware
that an iudepoudout country with
tho vory best government tho
world over saw owos allogiauce to
any other power If its dos it
ceases to bo independent But
wo do hold that every obligation
ontored into through treaties and
other contraots by a country ought
to religiously observed if tho coun
try is to obtain an honored position
in the family of nations
There has at all times boon an in
clination on tho part of tho Repub
lic to evade treaty obligations Tho
Government is now being called
down by certain powers who aro in
tho habit of protecting their sub
jects residing in other countries
with which they havo treaties
Japan will not be behind hand iu
following the example of tho United
StatoB Great Britain and other
powers but will jealously watch
over and protect tho interests of
hor subjects who came to Hawaii
under special treaty stipulations
Tho late representative of Japan
to Hawaii Mr Fujii forced the
Government here to recognize our
treaty and it was through his deter
mined attitudo that tho Constitution
of tho Republic places tho Japanese
apparently at least on an equal
footing with subjects of the most
favored nation His protest against
a further introduction df Ohiueso
coolies had its effect during his stay
As soon as he left preparations were
made and are now being carried out
for an unlimited importation of
Chinese
Tho Hawaiian Government placed
itself under solemn obligations to
discontinue tho introduction of Chi
nese when the Japan Hawaii troaty
was signed It has apparently for
gotten that promise and tho result
may yot bo that it will be unpleas
antly reminded of it Tho Japanese
living here havo made excellent citi
zens and they would not be true
sons of their progressive empire if
thoy did not know their rights and
wore not ready to defend them- The
Japanese in Hawaii cannot bo
ignored and they dont propose to
be so either
TOPICS OF THE DAY
The fight between tho other news
papers has got to be three cornered
Tho Bullotin is now going for tho
Advertisers scalp as wo 11 as tho
Stars Tho public dont fool inter
ested except to know when tho row
is going to bo finished
The Bulletin doesnt liko to be
compared oveu by insinuation to a
Nova Scotia wood chopper It ox
poses the Advertisers geographical
want of information in consoquenco
But what tho public wants to know
is why a Nova Scotian wood chop
per isnt as good in his way as the
word choppers on both tho Adver
tiser and tho Bullotin
Tho Advertiser contains this morn
ing a letter from the Hilo Teachers
Union In it is a paragraph on a
cortaiu paper read boforo it by a
teacher who says the hardworkod
fomalo assistant must be respect
