It is not often that trie I)aii.v Hono
lulu Prkss " blows its own trumpet,''
but we feci a pardonable pride in call:
infe attention to the " Grand Offer "
made by us, in another column of this
issue. This is an enterprise which, we
believe, is the first of its kind that has
ever been attempted in this Kingdom,
and, wc trust, will receive the patron
age it deserves, as it is a bona-fide
arrangement by which the public caji
get a six months' subscription to our
paper, and a valuable Holiday Gift, at
clilh rales, which are much less than the
regular prices when not combined.
This offer is open only until January J,

The policy of the Present Administration
seems to be to avoid discussiqn
of all the live issues .of the ,dav.', $$0
"'one denies the shrewdness of the policy.
It is dictated by the master political hand
which is pushing the King . onward toward
the brink of ruin. It is useless
o affirm that the Administration has
the backing of the entire natiye popu
lation;., it has not. It has not ev6n
the backing of the lepers on Molokji,
as the Government organ has at
tempted, to make it appear. To over
ride public opinion and procrastin: te
with the native voters seems to be the
s'ple object, of the King's "dumny
Government." Worse than this, tie
Government not only attempts no c e.-
tense or tneir ainereni ncianpus actions,
but the leaders have pushed the Ki lg
forward through the' native pape s,
Where his high position and word are
usedto convince the native voters tral
the , present Administration is in 10
Vrav responsible for the importation of
cheap labor into this Kingdom, blit
that the native's enemies, the " Opposition,"
are responsible for it all, T ne
public feel truly thankful for the
contained in the excuse, viz :
that the importation of Chinese is a
mistake. Viewing this new movement
to prejudice the native against the
hao)e, the public will pity the weakness
of the King and re condemn the course.
of the Administration. If the present
Administration had a leg to stand
upon besides the will of one man it
would be different : as it is the KiW
is ruining the country he is not strong
enough to rule properly.
If it is true, as it is asserted to be by
those who ought to know, that the hula
girls who lately danced fur the Kin R'S

have been put off with the present of a

pink cloth, while the money that was
collected trom thespectalors was divided
ainongthe managers, Jhen we, say nqthing
against the girls. Another present has
been promised the girls on Christmas,
provided they keep still.
The friends of the Government
stand upon their dignity, as the election
approaches and the Opposition
points out the blunders and evil ajcts
of the leaders. They declare at the
- eleventh hour that the bigbrained
.heads of a bankrupt Kingdom cannot
stoop to qnarrel with plebeian taxpayers.
Vtenty of Uommunlentlon,
To begin with, considered asa new
routc from England to her Australian
cdloiiics, it 'would have no advantage
whatever rover those now established.
New Zealand already has fortnichtlv
comrhunication with England, while
between Sydney and the mother country,
with Ithrcc.' lines, of steamships
already established, and a fourth, the
North German Lloyd's, soon to be.
there arc already passages made more
ircquentiy than once a week, which
will in the. near future be increased to
twice. As to tlie conlfort of the
traveller, the ontlook also is not very
promising by the new route. Steamers
sailing from Sydney to Victoria, or
whatever; point shall be' finally chosen
as the terminus of the Canadian "Pacific,
would make, the entire voyage directly
in . the teetH of the1 'northeast trades.
which could ;not ,Uut render the trip
anything but agreeable. Then at
travellers generally leave Australia for
linglano, in February, and ho one needs
to be told what the character of the
weather would be at this time in the
northern seas, and, for that matter,
upon; the rprtjnlarki, along tfilX line of
railroad. As to any considerable freight
traffic between Canada and the South
Sea colonies being built up, there are
also some: objections, prominent among
jthenn" being', ;the fact that these two
divisions of England's colonial empire
produce very much the same staples
meat, wool ana grain.

ject would succeed he did not pretend
to say, but'lhougrit'U possible that the
two steamers, the zalandta and the
Australia, might have been withdrawn
by their owners from the Australian
mail service with some idea of further
ing such a project. This, however,
was but a surmise.
While the present arrangement by
which his company's steamers, the
Mariposa and Alameda, carry the
mails direct to Sydney instead of -only
to Honolulu, as was originally intended,
was to be but temporary, is nevertheless
possible, Mr. Center states, that they
may continue to make the entire trip

Washington, Nov. 21st. Since.the
Kciley episode our, diplomatic relations
with Austria have beerj practically cut
011. 1 ne Austrian minister, wno nas
not been in this country for some time,
has been retired upon the grounds that
having been in the diplomatic service
for he is' disqualified for
further service. This leaves the mission
vacant, and the Austrian Government
has signified .that it will remain
so until the United States sees fit to
appoint a Minister to succeed Mr.
Keiley, whom they rejected.
They Vag Xo Attention to the Ireitlnt,'t
Washington, Nov. 21st. Reports
from special agents of the general Land
(Juice indicate that little or no attcn
lion was paid by cattlemen who illecallv
enclosed public lands to the President's
message of last Summer, commanding
the removal of fences. Commis
sioner Sparks to-day sent about forty
letters to the Secretary of the Interior,
each letter specifying and desribing an
illegal enclosure, of public land, giving
tne name 01 noiacr or holders, and
cacti recommending that the matter
be brought to the attention of the
.Attorney-General, with a view of the
institution of. both .civiKand criminal
proceedings for trespass against the
offenders'. Mr Sparks also recom
mended these cases to be laid before
the President, with a request that he
exercise the authority conferred upon
him by Congress in the matter. The
Act of Congress confers the power to
make use of the military to secure the
removal of fences.

Washington, November 21st As
sistant Secretary "of State Porter says
emphatically that this Government has,
so far, not had the slightest dissatisfac
tion with the course xf the German
Government towards our naturalization
laws or the Culwer treaty ; that when
the German authorities have proceeded
against German-Americans, in any manner
for cause, the German Govern
ment has invariably yielded to our re
quest, and that in the very few cases
where German officials have overstepped
their authority and molested
German-Americans without cause, it
has promptly heeded and respected
our protests and made reparation. The
statement that the President had called
for papers in relation to several Ger
man-Americans who had been put in
the German army is unfounded.

DAILY HONOLULUPRE$S, f hWAY, DECEMBER 3, 1885.
N Jtoythtt the l'tdlert.
Editor Daily Honolulu Press s
Sir.' Your able editorial of the 2d.
itist. was read by me with great pleasure.
This "peddling" business has been
carried on for such a long time, .aiid to
the detriment of business men here,
that it is time a stop was put to it. The
regular dealers have no protection.
Cases of infraction of the lavys have
been reported, but not by the pojice ;
the neddlcrs were fined about $20 1 1.1
less than one half of the cost of a retail
license', and one fifth the cost of 11
wlib'icialc license which flic "whole1
sale" selling of their goods demands.
Now if the police will not, or have not
the power tojstop this peddling, and if
the police judge will not impose a pro
per fine, the only course for the Mer
chants .to follow is to "boycott" these
peddlers and ship nothing by them. It
is done by some now, which account
lor tne large lots 01 mcrcnanaisc coming
here on ship's account, although the
peddlers offer to bring freight much
cheaper than honest ship men can.
One of their little games is the rebate.
A shipper of goods in San Francisco is
told the freicht will be, say $4.00 per
ton ; this is charged on the bill of
lading, and is also charged to the consignee,
but the shipper is paid back a
dollar or a dollar and a half per ton, so
that the bill of lading shows they
have not dut under the regular rates.
Another swindle is to demand gold for
freight, in default of which an extra
charge of five per cent, is made 1 I Nothing
of the above kindhascver occurred
in one, of .Sprocket's vessels.
The masters of Sprocket's vessels can
always be found attending to their
taimate business, but to finua "peddler"
one must look among the livery stable
men, the hackmen, the draymen or in'
fact any one man who keeps a horse or
n cow, and who will join a club of two
or three to purchase a ton of feed, a
dozen of shirts or a case of fruits or
even' a doll for the kid. Goods are
landed every week by these peddlers
and sold at 25 to 30 per cent., Icy
than any legitamate business man can
land them for; because, in the first
place, the peddler owns a part of the
vessel. He uses the money, paid by
the regular dealer for freight to purchase
his goods, generally at auction,
for his customers here; he receives gold,
which he sells at a large premium and
pays silver to the agents who give him
sicht exchange on San Francisco. So
all he makes above the actual cost of
the goods in San Francisco is clear
gain. Tons of goods also come on the
"store list" and are landed and sold.
It may be all right for some to pooh,
pooh 1 this, but it is a cold fact nevertheless.
Now to prevent all this, , and
restore trade where it once was, is the
duty of all concerned, and the merchants
have it in their hands "Boycott"
