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

,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.

Has Wn vlrtorlons over all other devices for covcrlnc
liollcrH ultli which it lias bten brouglit Into competi
tion, both In Kurope ami America, for the past twelNc
.1. ears. Endorsed by the Srlcntlfle Ammean nnd London
Knginealng everywhoru ns belnp tho best Non-con-dmtor,
the most llcllablc, tho most Economical.
THE ATR SPACE.
The "Air Space" Is n mechanical device. 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.
