It is not often that the Daily Hono-
LULtf Piikss "blows its own trumpet,"
but we feel a pardonable pride in calling
attention to the ' Grand 'Offer "
made by" us, in another column of this
issue. 'I'his is an enterprise which, we
believe, is the first of its kind that has
attempted in this Kingdom,
and, we trust, will, receive the patron
age it deserves, as it is a bona-fide
arrangement by which the public can
get a six months' subscription to our
paper, and a valuable Holiday Gift, at
club rates, wliicll arc much less than the
regular prices' when not combined.
This offer is open only until January i,

' IXCllHASKZTJIJ! .v.i Tiny '
Was a phrase first used by the King
in a public speech to Hawaiians. As
His Majesty used the phrase he applied
it to his subjects and not to any foreign
element ; so the people generally understood
it. It is true that the King "soon
after his accession, declared that the
efTort and purpose of his reign would
be to 'increase the nation," but His
Majesty uttered the words, ns they were
properly understood, to refer to the
Hawaiian race or nation and upon
them has been budded the political
subterfuge of the Government leaders,
which declares that " Hawaii for the
Hawaiians " should be the watchword
and the battle cry of all those who are
supporters of the Government party.
Hut now come the present Adminis
trillion's political tricksters, speaking for
themselves through their official organ,
who endeavor to widen the original
meaning' of the phrase "increase the.
nation" so that it will cover their political
malfeasance and hide the King's
laches from tjie eyes of the remnant of
his subjects, who have gradually decreased
since his accession to the
throne. It is sad enough to witness
neglect of duty, moral and political, in
the head of the Government, but when
dereliction of duty is used by the
King's false and unpatriotic Ministers
to shield their repeated acts against the
lives of the King's native subjects, then
it becomes the imperative duty of the
misused native race to join with those
who will help protect the interests of
all classes of citizens alike.
The flimsy pretext of the Administration
organ, that the phrase "increase
the nation" was intended by Hisj Majesty
to cover the impolitic expediency,
which the present Administration has
used to raise revenue by the importa
tion of coolie and Japanese cheap
labor, absurd as it seems, is, in fact,
nothing more than a direct thrust at
the naked bosom of the native Hawaiian.
During the time of Moreno's
Administration, an unofficial proposition
was made, by one of the members
of the Cabinet to increase the revenue
01 me ivinguom oy importing one
million coolies into the country, and
thereby receiving an-additional. annual
jricOme from (hem of $5,000,000. The
Moreno Administration did not pro-pose
to spend over $24,000 to subsidize
a steamship company to bring the
coolies here. A million Chinese coolies
in Hawaii would speedily drive the
entire native population into the grave,
The present Administration is attempting
to accomplish the same end
at a slower rate of speed. The 'only
difference between the proposition of
the Moreno Administration and the
acts of the present, is, that the former
proposed to make the importation pay
on n small subsidy, while1 the present
Ministers have drawn $800,000 of the
people's money to carry on the job of
burying the remnant of the native race,
and are now endeavoring, through their
organ, to make the King a party to the
A Honolulu Letter to the Chicago Inter.
Halawa, Kohala, Hawaii, H. I.,
July 30. The journey from San Francisco
to Honolulu is not so monotonous
as might be expected. Sailing out of
the Golden Gate thrills you. Such
magnificent sccilery, such impregnable
forts, the open sea before you. The
bar is soon reached; the sense of the
thrilling and glorious is changed to
dizziness and retching. The idea of
calling that Ocean Pacific, Balboa must
have been cither drunk or crazy with
sight-seeing. Surely no sane man would
have thought anything calm thereabouts.
After a week Of hopes and
fears land was sighted. Officers and
passengers were out on dress parade.
Diamond Head was seen in the
distance. It is an immense extinct crater
six miles from Honolulu. Recently
it was put up at auction, and several
patriotic Americans made an effort to
buy it, but failed. The Hawaiian
Government was the successful bidder,
the sum of $10,000 being paid for this
souvenir. The meaning of Honolulu
is "Pleasant Harbor,1' and it is well
named. As the ship approached the
dock scores of black heads appeared in
THE NATIVES ARE REGULAR DUCKS.
They will dive for a piece of money
and get it every time, always ready to
make a quarter if it costs' no manual
labor. The natives are regarded higher
than the negro at home, and yel, as a
class, they are not as independent in
thought, nor half as industrious.
Honolulu is strictly a cosmopolitan
city. Men out of every nation are seen
here. I hey retain their idiosyncrasies
with a vengeance.
The most prominent among them is
the inhabitant of the Flowery Kingdom.
These islands arc the Chinaman's
paradise. They" flock here in great
numbers, and have not worked the
same mischief as at home. Laborers
have been extremely scarce. This
whetted " John's " avarice, and a fabu
lous price he asked for labor, and he
got it. 1 here was no hem tor it until
the recent importation of Japanese and
Portuguese. This has brought wages
down a little. 1 lie difficulty ha; been
with the Chinese that they wanted
enormous wages, and were unwilling to
rentier even a lair equivalent lor tne
same. The meekness of the California
Chinaman and his willingness to. give
honest labor for small pay is all assumed.
Here he is the reverse, and
no Shylock can distance him in his
greed for money. The influx of laborers
has released white people from the
tyranny of this bondage. There arc
good (relatively) and bad Chinamen.
The Christian Chinamen are most
eagerly soucht after, as they are less
superstitious, approach nearer to Hon
esty and truthfulness, and are much more
reliable than the frequenter of the Joss
"JOHN" IS SHREWD.
Let that idea once get into his head
and hell swallow any creed, from Iheo
dote Parker to Joseph Cook, if it will
increase his revenues. People in the
East have not had sympathy enough
with people of California in their fight
against these heathens. Once let a man
dwell there or here and he will be a
convert quickly and thoroughly.,
The Portuguese are a fine class of
laborers as a rule. Very few of them
can read or write, and "yet they arc all
most devout adherents of the Roman
Catholic Chinch. Mgr. Capel forgot
this class of people when he boasted
that the Catholic church was the friend
of education. Sud) bombast in the
Hawaiian Islands would "astonish the
natives." On the contrary, the Pro
testant church has brought education
here, and there is not a native who has
reached the age of 15 but can read and
write. And her influence has been
such as to educate the children by
compulsion of the Chinese and Por
tuguese. Since this must inevitably
brmg its results to the Catholic church,
she has a few schools here and there to
attempt to cover her shame for neglecting
the parents. The Japanese
are the best laborers.
They are a bctter.class of people. The
forehead is higher,' and the neck and
lower brain not so heavv. Thev are
most honest ; quicker to learn, and
when once they leurn they retain it.
I'hcy have not that sullen obstinacy
about them that characterizes the Chinaman.
The Japanese mostly have
had Christian instruction at home, and
it shows itself upon them abroad. They
are not given to petty thieving like the
Chinese and Portuguese.
THEV AUK AWAY ABOVE THEM.
The "Japs" will not work in the same
part of the field with the Chinaman. This
suits the planters exactly, for they do
nofwant them contaminated with tlu
vices and meannesses of the average
Chinaman. Such, with a few natives,
Americans, and other nationalities
represented by the Anglo-Saxon blood
make- up Honolulu. It is a strantre
.papulation. Stand Upon one corner of
a htreet and it is a fair representation of
the scenes .around the Tower of Babel
in ancient times. The result is obvious
--no fixed, definite customs, no per
inanerit population. The population
represents the law 'of mutations.to an
exactness that is startling. ' .
Honolulu can never be a great city
There- is not continuity of purpose
DAILY HONOLULU PRESS, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1885.
enough. There is not harmony of
ideas suflicient to push rapidly along
the lines of progress. The native cares
nothing so long as he has his poi and
fish. The Chinaman can't rest, dead
or alive, until he is back 111 China. The
American only wants to make a few
"more corners of change" and then he's
off home. No one proposes to stay
here permanently unless it'i the missionary
families and worn out politicians
who arc out here for rest, health rand
office. There are many of this class
among them. Mr. Gibson, who is
Prime Minister, is the sharpest,
shrewdest man that ever put foot on
these islands. He came out here as a
Mormah Missionary, and being a fluent
speaker and magnetic, he soon attracted
AN ISLAND WAS SELECTED
and bought by the hard-earned money of
the natives. I Ins was to be the. New
Jerusalem of the Hawaiian Islands.
But Gibslin turned his attention to
politics and money making, at both of
which he has been supremely successful.
1'aul Neumann also is here as Attorney
General. Spreckels tried to get
him into Congress, but failed, and
then he brought him out here and ordered
him made Attorney- General.
Sprccklcs is really King. King
is only a figurehead.
Honolulu is built of wood mostly.
Only a few buildings go up more than
two stories. I he streets are narrow
and irregular, though for the most part
kept clean. There is no drainage system,
and some day an infectious dis
ease will strike that city of super
lative gratmcation and sublimely in
different case and unify that hetero
geneous population in death. The
Hawaiian Islands, generally speaking,
are years behind time. A few of the
modern improvements have gotten
here, but there is not that push and
progress, commercially, socially, and
religiously, you find at home. Climatic
reasons in part account for thisT
PEOPLE HERE -LOSE VIM AND VIGOR.
I said to a prominent Government official
: " If you had a cable to San
Francisco it would be worth millions
to these Islands." "Well, I don't
know," he replied. "It would be
pleasant to hear from the outside
winld every day, but then the outside,
docs not hear trom the Sandwich
Islands any oftener than we do of it."
"Things equal to the same thing are
equal to cich other," mentally passed
through my mind. Men get into the
indifferent habit here of being contented
with the arrival and departure
of the mails. Washington Irving's
poking fun at the Knickerbocker comes
seriously near " twitting on facts " in
