JULY 31, 1893.
This is the fiftieth atinivcrs.iry of tin
restoration of the Hawaiian COlbTI iftci
they had been lowered oil these Islands
by Lord George I'aulet and the British
flag raised. Just a half a century this
afternoon on Monday, July Jl, 1843
the ceremony took place. Th pltif)
east of what was then tin grtas-hul
village of Honolulu, a region now em
bracing Thomas square, was chosen as
the place of assembly and there gathered
thousands of native Hawaiians and the
whole white uuuulation. A flagstaff
had been out up and lanais and tent
were built up around it.
At to o'clock a. Mi the king and
Admiral Thomas appeared and were
saluted by the British marines and the
field artillery. The British colors were
drooped in salute to His Majesty and
the Hawaiian standard was drawn ti
the top of the staff amid salvos from
the forts and the fleet in the harbor
Services followed at the old stone
church and there were luaus and sports,
including a great feast given by the
king at Luakaha, Nuuanu Valley,
which continued for ten days.
The act of restoration was long re
garded as one of magnanimity on
the part of England, but events proved
that it had been one of pique by
Admiral Thomas. It seems that Lord
George Paulet, commander of the
British ship Carysfort, whose flag had
been raised here, reported the facts
directly to the Admiralty, and not to
the Admiral, his superior officer. When
the latter heard of it he came and
made good the affront to his dignity by
undoing Paulet's work. It is signifi
cant of the way this act was received
in England that Lord Aberdeen should
have said, on hearing of it, that if it
had not been for the Admiral's course
the flag would not have been withdrawn
at all. It was urged all over England
that Great Britain had lost a coveted
One interesting reflection, apropos
of the day, is what the present state of
public opinion in the United States
would be regarding these Islands if
England had held them and incorpor
ated tnem with the British Empire. It
is certain that there would be a unani
mous contempt for the policy which
had left for English seizure an Island
which American missionaries had civil
ized and, one which lay in the track of
American commerce, and would have
so great future bearing upon the de
fensive welfare of Western America.
It would be pointed out in a thousand
newspapers now that the act had left
England in command of the North
Pacific; and thsre would be a
demand for millions to fortify San
Francisco, Puget Sound and San Diego
against us. Certainly not a voice
would be raised in the United States
against any reasonable method of
acquiring the group from England any
more than there would be against the
peaceful acquisition of Bermuda.
And yet here is the United States
hesitating over a free tender of the
Islands by their Government when tin
result of a refusal to accept them might
be their acceptable proffer to Great
The fact that the American navy is
short of men is not at all strange. Th
averase voune citizen of the United
States has no use for a profession in
u,hirh hp cannot hone to rise ; and .s
for the common run of sailors they
prefer doing duty in the merchani
marinp to takint! a lone billet with
Uncle Sam. If the American Govern
ment wishes to get plenty of good,
intelligent American-b rn sailors let it
recruit them as Napoleon did hi
troons. "Every French soldier," said
the great conqueror, "carries a mar
shal's baton in his knapsack." That
is to say, the volunteer knew that merit
would bring him the highest rewards
In the case of the United States navy,
if every sailor could feel that the way
to the quarter deck was open to hin,
there would be no lack of seamen in
the forecastle. At present the prospect
of passing one's life in a hat touching
existence, with a boatswain's whistle
the highest prize, is not alluring to an
The London-edited Herald pro
fesses to have learned in a nundab-ut
way tbal the President and Secretary
tf State have spoken highly of its
Hawaiian 1 ampaign The Herald is
forever angling for compliments in
official waters, and has often amusfd
its readers by telling how this or that
European monarch or African king had
acknowledged its world-wide influence.
Most of the communictttont seem to
have been secured by the methods of
the New York Amateur Press Associa
lion when it wanted an indorsement
from Samuel I. Randall. A committee
waited on the Pennsylvania statesman
ind said; "Don't you think, Mr.
Randall, that amateur journalism is the
toblest occupation of the American
youtl ?'' "Oh, h I, yes," replied th
hnsv man f affairs, "but don t notnir
ne now." The committee reported
md the next week the au ateur journ
ils of the country all bore this Iff)
preisive legend 1
Amateur loumtliim is ihc noblest occupri
limi of the American youth. Sumiu! J
If the Herald got any Compliment

and annualtv alona the e ntinental

One reason for this neglect is doubtteat
the location of the big show. Chicagt
despite its size, is not a world's capi
tal, and the impression made upon
the European mind by an American
exposition there is the same as the
idea a citizen of the United States
would get of a French "world's" fair
at Lyons or an English one at Man
Chester. The thing is looked upon
as a local institution. Then again, an
European, who would be willing
enough to board a steamer and go
direct to the fair- as he could do if it
had been held at New York hrs no
desire to subject hims -If to 2000 miles
of i dand railway travel in an unfamiliar
country. Then fore, he spends ihc
summer at his lavorite watering place
and lets Chicago shift for itself.
THB naval and military genius who
discovered that an American fleet
could be penned up in Pearl harbor by
a hostile vessel which should lie at the
entrance and sink the first Yankee
cr.ift that miaht try to pass out of the
narrow stra t, is at it again. He now
announces in his last letter to (he
Herald that the Royalists could take
an Inter-Is.and steamer, mount a gun
on it and compel Honolulu to restore
"the O leen." Naturally he does not
say what the Provisional batteries
would be doing meantime. Probably,
in his senile w.iy. he never thought of
that As Ambrose Bierce would re
mark, apropos of a recent London fad :
"Charles N rdh ff is a . Can
any one supply the missing word."
The appearance on the s a of the
great cruiser Columbia, said to be the
finest all round war vessel in the world,
will be hailed with delight by Ameri
cans everywhere. So late as the
Chilian trouble the United States had
n vessel that could meet the Capitan
Prat on anything like equal terms.
N w in the New York ami the com
pleting Columbia, and in half a dozen
other warships so n to be supplied,
Uncle Sam has his pick of ironclads
that could give the Prat odds and
then sink her. It is pleasant also to
know that when this new fleet gets Into
Commission America will be the fourth
naval power in th w rid. It is no)
long since slu was the eighth.
It is not unlikely that the French in
Siam are playing to the Parisian gal
leries. There is much unrest and dis
turbance at the gay capital, therefore,
let the minds of the populace be
diverted to the c ast of Asia by a
vigorous foreign policy! The more
talk about a collision with other
European powers the better ; for that
rouses French patriotism and quiets
internal broils. One may look with
confidence to the Siam imbroglio v
last just so long as the cloud of revolu
tion broods over the Seine, and no
Tun New York Recorder contrasts
Nordhoff's recent statement that "after
restoration, the Queen will behave her
self" with his previous ones that slu
had never misbehaved, but had been
an altogether wise and adorable st.ver
eign. There are plenty of similar lapses
in the Herald's, correspondence, all of
which accent the maxim, as old as
Ananias, that "Nordhoffs should have
g od memories." In rhe case of the
Hawaiian visitor memory seemed to
have gone off on a vacation with con
science. Photography reveals two comets
instead of one, and shows that they are
having a steeplechase among the stars.
One comet is ahead by ab ut a neck,
and seems likely to keep his distance.
The track is very fast and musin is
lurtiished free by the conveii ent
spneres. The leading comet seems to
be tutu tailed and the slower one has q
flowing appendix which may account
for his being in the rear. Owii, to
the fast pace the sidereal Derby is not
xpected to last long.
