danta in Hawaiian History
Tho Troy Northorn Budget has a
versatile corrospondont Mae writ
ing up the Florida coast He in
dulgos in tho following amusing
touches of satire in roferenco to cer
tain Hawaiian resources which will
bo read with intense interest hero
on account of their rarity of accur
acy He is speaking incidentally of
the advisability of introducing hip
popotami with the object of destroy
ing the water hyaciuthB He says
their advent might prove as dis
astrous as the introduction of the
mongoose into Hawaii In that swoob
Paradieo of Eden tho ratB and tho
mice woro so destructive to the
sugar cane when growing as to seri
ously injure the crop Thoy gnawed
tho stalk for the root of
juice thero was in it
When Hawaii set up as a republic a
commissioner of agriculture was ap
pointed and oue of his first acts was
to send to Jamaica for tho mou
gooso to destroy the hits and mice
The mongoose is a kind of over
grown weasol When they set tho
mongoose to work he soon cleaned
the cane fields of mice and then
wont for tho rats which speedily
met a similar fato Having ex
terminated all thoso he next went
for eggs next for chickens aud then
ho went for the hohroosts and fowls
Having cleaned them out the mon
goose next went for cats and dogs
When I was there he was going up
highor and peoplo began to won
dor when he would in his ascent
reach tho top of the scale The mon
goose breeds monthly and tho dan
ger waa that he would become as
great a plague as tho rabbits of Aus
tralia Tho peoplo anathematized
tho commissioner of agriculture
and nicknamed him Mongoose Joo
Joe was a juioy Englishman a good
man who weighed 800 pounds
Whon I left Hawaii tho people wore
wondoring how long it would tako
for Mr Mongoose to get up to Joes
size iu his work of extermination
This reminds me that tho native
Hawaiians think that mosquitoes
were introduced into Hawaii as a
just punishment for their angry
folly There were no mosquitos in
tho islands whon tho white mon
came One day a whale ship touched
there and tho natives had a quarrel
with the sailors boat them aud
drove them to their ship A few
months later tho ship roturned and
brought from tho Northern seas
mosquitos which were tho first over
soon in tho islands Many natives
to this day think the Bailors brought
iu the mosquitos as a punishment
for tho iuhospitablo way in which
they had previously treated the
white whalers All this aptly illus
trates the saying that snmo tiino wo

Repugnant to America
The treaty for tho annexation of
Hawaii is probably defeated and if
this should bo the happy result it
would bo due entitoly to discussion
Before the presont session of Con
gress began tho friends of annexa
tion and uotably Mr MoKinley
were suro that the treaty would be
ratified at ouco Indeed the op
ponents of annexation wore treated
with the disdain that is essentially
due from men of feeling like an
nexationists and Jingoes towards
men who reason nod go slow But
thero was a hitch iu the carrying
out of the programme aud first wo
heard that annexationists lacked
three of tho necossary two thirds of
the Senate aud then that they lack
ed live and now that thoy look
eight or tou As discussion of the
treaty and of tho project has been
going on during all this time we
think wo are justified iu our asser
tion that discussion has brought it
to this happy pass Discussion has
opened tho eyos of the people to
tho folly of tho scheme of nnuexing
to this country a distant group of
islands inhabited by a peoplo
mainly alien and for whoso govern
ment if thoy should bo annexed wo
have no adequate machinery If tho
question comes up in tho form of a
now joint rosolutiou providing for
annexation by law instead of by
treaty thero is reasoti to believe
that the further aud opon discus
sion that will accompany tho at
tempt to pass such a rosolutiou will
still furthor clarify tho minds of all
of our Congressmen so that they
will see that tho American people
are sensible aud Hhrewd and in tho
end would disapprot u of Representa
tives who voted to thrust such a
burden as Hawaii upon their re
public A law to take into its
jurisdiction a foreign poople most
of whom are unwilling to come
certainly seoms foroign to tho pur
pose and nature of a republic
