ti SATURDAY PRESS. SEPTUM Mill 25, 1880. Tho Hawaiian Crisis. From the "8 F, Merchant)' of ScptmbcM. Thco m no disposition on thopirtof llio conservative citizens of tho Hawaiian King dom or on tho part of forot'gn property own ing ronidontn to exaggerate tho importance of tho ministerial crisis which has lately occurred in that Island. Tho events from the 14th to tho 19th of August, or indeed wo may include the laht four tlayo during which the Legislature was in Boioion, mak ing eight days in all, nro tho most eventful wcolc that tho lilllo Kingdom has passed throngh Hinco Kamehameha l'jrst consoli dated tho Hovcral chicfUinshipi and mndo a Kingdom out of a tribal government. Not only havo wo no disposition to oxng gorato tho dangers tho country has passed through, bill wo havo no dosiro to impugn any motivos to his Majesty King Kalakaua than what are good and loyal to tho pcoplo of whom ho is tho constitutional King. It would ho useless to conceal that tho great excitement which prevailed in Honolulu from tho 14th to tho 19lh of August to n lessor orient sprond to this city when tho Htory was told by Honolulu newspapers and privato correspondents. Tho action of his Mtijosty in suddenly discharging his cab inot, which had just rccoivod by an over whelming majority a voto of conlldonce from tho legislature, and his immodiato ap pointment, apparently without consultation with nny of tho intelligent nnd conserva tive citixons, native and foreign born, of whom there aro so many in tho Islands, of a ministry repugnant to tho best of his subjects and to (lucent pooplo of nil shados of politics and all nationalities, might well excite alarm. Tho following is nu outlino of what occurred in tho four days: On Saturday, August 14th, the legislature, to tho rolief of a majority of tho most enlight ened and substantial rosidents of the Island, wns prorogued. This chcorf ill condition of affairs was quickly broken np by tho pro mulgation of news that tho King had sont lottors to nil tho members of his cabinet dismissing them from tho ministry. Tho public was naturally enough on tho qui vive to know who woro their successors. Tho names woro shortly announced, and wo can well understand that, in tho opin ion of the Hawaiians the King, as an hon est gentleman, conld hardly havo made- a worso seloction for n portion of his cabinet if1 ho had, desired to do tho worst instead of tho best for his pcoplo. Tho appointments woro Celso Omsar Moreno for Minister of Foreign Affairs; General J. S. Walker, Ministor of Finance; John Bush, Minister of tho Interior, ami Judge Davidson, At torney Gonoral. Mossrs. Walker and David sou at onco declined to take office with Morono. It should ho hero explained that Moreno is well known in San Francisco as a man without character, as a lobbyist and an ndvonturer, who having'exhnubtcd his opportunities in California left tho United States and has resided for some time in China, nnd for tho past fow months in Honolulu. On roceiving tho refusals of Messrs. Walker and Davidson, wha are well known and roputablo citizons of Ha waii, thoiKing, unfortunately for all parties, instead of reconsidering his ono most ob jectionable nomination, appointed W. C. Jones, Police Magistrate, nnd tho Rov. M. Kaaca, a nativo preacher, in tho places re fused by thoso gontlomon. When tho news of tho King's persistence in his choice of tho intriguer Moreno for Ministor of For eign Ail'uirs, wns bruited about, tho poo plo of Honolulu oxprossod their indignation vory freely. Protests woro Bout to thoir several national representatives by foreign nicrchnnts, planters and capitalists, sotting forth the ovil ofl'ects which they feared from his Majesty's ill considered conduct. In these protests tho appointment of a disre putable ttdvuntircr liko Morono to ono of the most important positions of tho cabinet was ohnractorizod as dangerous to the wel fare and prosperity uot only of tho country but nlso of all foroigu capital invested in the Islands. On receipt of these protests tho several foreign representatives hoisted their flags and notified his Majesty that they would not recoguizo his cabinot or bold nny relations but thoso on the most urgont business, with, his uow ministor, un til further instructed by their governments. Following quickly on this remonstrance of tho representatives of friendly foreigu pow ers, cauio mass meetings of tho pooplo. In sotno of thoso meotiugs resolutions couched in strong language and ceusuriug tho King wero passod by acclamation and im mediately forwarded to his Majosty. An attempt was mado by old friends of his Majesty and by delegations and commit tees to obtain porsonal interviews in which matters might bo explained, nnd a courso of royal action agreed upon that would bo mutually satisfactory. His Majosty, on some inexplicable grounds, possibly con ceiving himself misjudged nnd tho victim of popular clamor, rofused to see any oue. This state of ati'airs, with its growing bit terness of feeling on the part of the popu lace, contiuued until the nfternoon of the 18th, when a meeting was called of nil for eign residents, for tho purpose of taking some more decided bIcds in tho tunttor. While that meeting wns ,in session, and after some resolutions strongly condemna tory of the King's action had been passod, word was brought from the palace that Moreno's resignation had been demanded, received and accepted. Tho obnoxious Min ister, after four short days of office, was out. Tho mooting good-Uumoredly inn unci -d tho resolution already putted, soften ing their tone, and nominated a committee, consisting of 0. B. Bishop, C. Plluger, A. J. Cartwright, If. May and W. G. Irwin, to wait 014 his .Majesty, and convey to him tho gratification of the meeting at learning of tho judicious action ho had taken. Thet,o gentlemen went to tho palace, but teem tfo niui uh audience by Itu MujuMtj, though his royal thanks wero conveyed to tho com mittee for calling. 'i "Tho removal of Morouo, quo of nud tho most objectionable member of )hu Cabinot, allayed tho public excitement suinowhat, but still thuro was a fueliug of underground anxiety to know what blup the King would tako uext. On the 10th tho day tho steamer left there was a rumor that his Majesty had determined to appoint tho lion. 11. A. 1 Carter, Minister of Foreigu HeUtious; llobert Sterling, Minister of tho Interior; Simou Kaat, Miuister of Finance; aud Mr. Preston tho late Attorney General, iiis own successor. If this rumor prove irue, the Hnwaiuutt; will have nq further auw of complaint. All the appointee iu the objectiouable Cabinet, good and bad .together, will have beeu got rid of, aud wen of tried character and merit will be at 'the head of affairs. While the nolicv of the ue'ft-C4hiue' inojr differ n detail fryui hat, .wijii.'iuaa uvy'VjR jiutvwi; vm iv iwu J ear, "iu U WMtntiiU it will bo similar, ia policy. If iitbiss atxHggU between Ui prerpga uvea 01 uie uruwu uu tuu rcguv? ut luu Cabinet nnd tho pooplo tho latter have been j strengthened whilo tho formor havo been , nwakonrd, it will bo tho better for tho country. It is gratifying to record that ' during tho intenpo excitoment which pro- vailed in Honolulu, both nmongtho foreiirn born nnd native, there. waR no rioting, no disturbance, no manifestation of a desire to havo rccourso to nny but tho most legiti mate and constitutional means of righting what tho pcoplo felt to bo n griovons wrong. It is true that thoro wns a rumor as tho steamer left tint a delegation, our informant says, of tho hoodlum population, had waited upon Morono, and domnnded that ho should leave tho country, and that that person had called upon tho police for protccti6n. This rumor i", however, tin authenticated. Tho 1 In wniiaus aro a peace loving and law-abiding people, nnd Moreno is safo from personnl injury, but ho will probably find in tho opcnly-oxprosscd (lis liko of tho pcoplo n sufficient cnuso for leaving a conntry in which his carocr has been an rnischicvons to others as it has been unproductive in results to himself. The Coming of the Ho Chung. l'rom the 81m l'rsnctsco Weekly Bulletin of Sept. 1 at. Tho first Chiueso steamer hns just en tered this port. She is a small craft, Urilish built, nnd ono of moro than thirty steamers, most of thorn larger, owned by a Chincso company. It nppoars that her presenco in these waters is duo in some fncasnro to tho tffbrts of ono Celso C. Moreno, a restless Italian advonturor, who appears and diRappoars in various pirts of tho world, nnd whoo only capital consists in unlimited energy nnd nn audacity which amounts almost to genius. No doubt tho Chincso morchauts aro ready for tho ex porimont. Tho I In Chung wont first to Honolulu with Moreno on bonrd. Tho most oxtraoidinnry fact is, that during tho short stny of tho steamer at tho Islands, Morono contrived to influence the King to such nn extont that ho dismissed his Cabi net, appointing a now oho, with Morono, tho foreign ndvonturer, in tho plnco of Ministor Knpcnn, a nativo, who had served long and faithfully in that capacity. Min istor Wildor,-of tho Intorior, was alRo re moved. This revolution nstonished the pooplo, who havo a healthy way of ox pressing public opinion. Moreno hold offico for four days, when tho prossuro of public scntimont became too strong, tho indignntion of tho people becoming moro fervent ovcry dny. It is difficult to ascer tain just tho kind of reasoning on tho part of tho King thnt led to theso extraordinary changes, or whether thoro wns nny roaso'1 at ali in tho premises. Tho mere change of Cabinet Ministers would not iu itself bo a strango circumstance. But tho appoint ment of an ndvonturer to tho office of Min istcr of Foreign Affairs, ono not heretofore identified with tho iutercsts of tho King dom, of whom littlo wns known, and that litllo had failed of making a favorable im pression upon tho public. that transaction wns too much for tho Hnwaiians. It is evident thnt from tho first, tho King had expoctcd groat things from tho inception of tho now lino of China steam ers, with which Morono had managed in somo way to becomo identified. Honoluln would bo a port of call. Tho lino could not bo mado profitablo unless, in ndditiou to tho coolies landed on tho Islands, tho groalor part of tho business was transferred irom American steamships to tho China liuo. All this tho King nud his advisors must have foreseen, if they foresaw any thing. Yet in tho face of theso facts tho King promptly takes Moreno into hiB con fidence and givos him the most important placo m his Cabinot. That appoars to havo beeu tho roward which Moreno receied for promoting a Chincso line of steamers to cripple American commorco with tho Isl ands. Moreno roigned for four days. What State papers ho originated in this brief timo doos not npponr. Wo havo been fur nished such an account from his pen of affairs at the Islands as it is deemed wholly iuoipodiont to publish, been 11 to it is, to a considerable extent, nu 'effort to punish tho ox-Ministor'B enemies and to reward his friends. Morono, it appears, not only succeeded in obtaining a buiall subsidy from tho Ha-' waiian Government for tho Chincso lino of btoamcrs, but wns successful also in pro moting tho opinm Bcliome, of which) men tion wns mado some days ago in this jour nal. It was proposed by Chincso capitalists to transfer tho manufacture of opium from Hongkong to the Hawaiian Islnnds, chiefly becauso tho subsidy doinnndod at the for mor plnco was too largo, tho sum of $40U, 000 being tho fixed price. Through Mo reuo's influence u concession wns obtained from tho Hawaiian Government for tho manufacture of opium, the royalty being $120,000 a year. It is to be noted that no such business cau bo carried on anywhere in Chinebo territory. But tho island of Hongkong boing British territory, that business has boon prosecuted thoro with groat zeal nnd at nn immense profit for mauy years. Tho transfer of tho manu facture to theso islands, so near to tho Pacilio Coast, would huvo boon a brillinut speculation. Tho amount which Morouo would hnvo gained docs uot appear. But tho diff'ereuco in tho subsidy price wns '.280,000, Hero again tho pressnro of public soutiment was bo groat that tho King finally refused to sign tho bill, al though thoro ib good reason o think that he favored it up to tho time it encountered the strong nnd determined opposition of tho public. It would appear that iu both thebo transactions Moreno was tho agent of Chincso capitalists, nud thnt for theso efforts tho King rewarded him by bestow ing on him ono of tho most important offices in tho Kingdom. Tho favor of tho King bhown to thu China liuo of steam bhips is tho moio extraordinary, since it has been known for homo time Hut Chinese immigration to tho Islands has been n fail, uro iu an industri.il point uf view. Tho Islands havo now more Chiuuse than unv other foreign element, nud the tendency would bo, if Chiueso steamers woro to land coolies without restriction, to overrun tho Ibland? with ibis population at uo distant day. This immigration being so unsatis factory, planters nnd others have cast about for other laborer, and havo sent to tho Society Islands tor them. Yet hero is a Government premium a small ono, it is true offered for a Chinese liuo of steam ers, when the most profitablo item of tho busiuohs would bo tho transportation of coolies to and from these Islaudsl Tho recout exprutsiou of popular opin ion, at the Islands is advcno to auy subsi dies to a China line of steamers, to Chinese immigration other than in a very limited way, aud to Moreno's concession for an opium factory, and not loast, to his hold) ug any position like thi,( of Cabinet Minister ill lhi ITnwniiAn Onvnrtitnntif Tim Utlnn .-. .,. -..-- ,-......, ..... .....v. ,uocinre nut tie was a natnraluoa, citizen lof, tiefued KSttos. It follows 'f,hit having taken. tho oath of allegiance to. the Haw aiiau Kingdom, ho is uow a subject of that country, and being a citircn he ought to havo tho interests of tho Kingdom too much at hoart to desire in any way to crijrplo its prosperity that ho may per sonally profit by it. Ho knows, or ought to know, that tho schomo of subsidizing a lino of China steamers would nt this timo work incalculable mischief to Hawaii, sinco it would bo at tho expense of American commorco, nnd would certainly in llio end provoko antagonism to tho Reciprocity Treaty. Ho knows, or ought to know, that Riich a schemo ns that of obtaining nn opium concessidn from Hnwnii, by giving n largo subsidy therefor, was fraught with mibchief, and was a scheme which could only havo been set on foot for selfish per sonal ends. JuRt now cx-Ministor Mo reno's position can hardly bo said to bo an enviable one. Honolulu Politics. It wns not unnatural if tho foregin mer chants of Honolulu should, in tho excite ment resulting from tho lato ministerial crisis, seek tho aid nnd protection of tho Foreign Ministers. That theso Ministers thought tho choico of tho King especially in the caeo of Moreno, nppointcd Minister of Foreign Affairs a most undeserved and unfortunate selection, was ovinccd by their unanimous refusal to recoguizo this person or transact any but tho most urgont busi ness with him. Tho following is a copy of ono of tho protests which induced tho for eign representatives to tako this cxtraoidi nary stand: Hero follows tho protests of tho English community nnd thoso represent ing English interests, signed by cloven heads of important biiMiicss hoiiRCS, addressed to the English Consul-General. .!', F. Jiv chunt. Tho effect of tho news from tho Islands lias not been boncficinl to tho credit of that Kingdom. Freaks of enprico or temper in tho chief rulor of a country, as much ns dis honesty, folly and extravnganco in a legis lature, weaken tho faith of capitalists, bank ers and merchants in tho future prosperity of tho State in which thoy are exhibited. It is not too much to say that for the mo ment Island credit received n pretty rudo shock iu San Francisco whou tho particu lars of a ministerial crisis were learned tho other day. Men said to thcmselvos, nnd nsked each othor, " What will a King do next who is so lost to prudence nnd self respect ns to choose a man liko Moreno for IiIr companion, chief officer nnd Priino Counselor?" Fortunately for tho littlo Kingdom, tho news of tho King's retrac tion, nnd, however slowly and unwillingly mndc, it mitigitcd tho feeling of indigna tion, wns received at the samo time ns tho first intimation of tho tronblo. It was as if tho first wo heard of an alarm of fire was coupled with news thnt tho flames woro extinguished. Tho friends of tho Island Government, and of all that appertains to the Islands, hopo to hear of no moro snch crises or unreasonable nnd unconstitutional exhibitions of Kingly power. S. F. Merchant.

The old method of covering bollerp, steam and other hot pipes. a to smear a coatlne of plaster oer the boilers and pipes, and directly in contact with the hot surfaces, v-ommon sinso teuch-s that any compound thus applied will soon have the life burnt out of it, and that tlm ex pansion and contraction of the metal oct which It la smearid, will ciuse It to loosen and cracl,, so that It will, after a time, fall ofl. Hcidea this, cxpcrlinco has proed thut the lime nud other compciiuds used for this purpose, when applied direct to tho boiler surfaces, corrodes the boilers so ns to creatly Injure them. The Air fcpneo scnes a tuo-fold purpose; first It pro vides a stratum of air entirely around iho boiler, which Is tho be.it known non conductor of heat. NtomL.lt Ermides a surface which Is entirely Independent of the oiler surface upon which the cover lot; cooiiotuid Is placed, nnd this surface hilnj formed of wlro cloth of '4-Inch mesh, furnlslu a splendid means of clluchlnL' or fasleiiini; tho compound around tho boiler. The wire space Is supported al thu tace of nn Inch or moro from the boiler or hot pipe by metal studs placed close tnacther, so that the expansion or contraction of tho boiler or pipes around which It Is placed will not af fect the outsldu cocrlnc because thu stud allows a sufficient moriient without dlstnrbini; the surround Ins wire and coor. Kxperiencc nnd practical tests have deinonstrat'd beyond a doubt that tho radiation of tint from a boiler surrounded by the "Air Space " and its uivuiuv, I. less than that from u boiler cotered with any of thu other well known boiler coverings; couscqumtly thero Is a greater savin? of fuel.
