political behalf. As we pointed on
the other day, their Sole remaining
choice is annexation the latter imply
inn a maintenance of the status auo
until annexation may be more readi
brought about. I! they continue, as
many of them have, to uphold the bier
of the monarchy in the belief that th
corpse laid upon it can be revived, they
may find themselves, later on, in
political pihkia. A protectorate woul
leave the question of their suffrage t
the decision ol the Provisional (Jovern
ment, the plans of which they lud in
tetfered with and delayed. How would
they be likely to fare then? But
they should now turn in for annexation
providing they were grunted th
political rights that their white neigh

these Islands with America would

they, as instruments of the chang
would gain a political influence which
they never dreamed of under the old

As Monarchists the natives go ab

Annexationists they could keep abrea

benefits, have their say in affairs and
Improve their material condition
The times are propitious tor a mov

done by a Hawaiian leader with courage
and brains who should raise the stane

and Equal Rights? Nothing could re

inspired as such a foi ward march would
be by the genius of American liberty
and infused with the consciousness of
Who is the man for the hour? Is it
Rosa, or Parker, or Hush, or Colburi,
or Cummins, or Nawahi, or is it some
man yet unknown to public life who
has the taste for great things?
FAILURE UF THE FAIR.
The statement coming from a Chi
cago editor that his city has been nearly
beggared by the fair, but would rise
above this disaster as it had from the
ashes of the fire, has a curious sound.
It was not many months ago that the
same journalist was leaving no stone
unturned to bring the Columbian shi w
to the banks of Lake Michigan, and if
anyone had ventured to predict then
that this same enthusiast would lind
occasion to class the fair among Chi
cago's great calamities he would have
been regarded as a fit subject for patho
logical inquiry And yet August had
not passed off the calendar before thii
testimony dropped from his lips some
what as a matter of course.
The lesson tauuht by the failure ws
the exposition to pay its cost is that
world's fair should be held at a world's
capital and not in any place of second
ary fame and importance, and at n
great distance from the seaboards
There would be no vital interest to an
American in a French fair, howevir at
tractive of itself, which had been located
in Lyons or Amiens. He Wouiei say t
himse.f that, if the exhibits weft! really
to be m.ide on a collossal scab, they
would have been installed in Fails. A
Neonolitan fair would not attract
foreigners like one in Rome ; and a
for an English exposition, the experi
ment of nuttinu it at Manchester would
result in the attendance being confined
in a large degree, to tie people Of the
vicinage arid all this without reg.ird
to the cost and splendor of the show
The average European knows New
York as one of the great cities of tin
world and as the real capital of tht
United States. He is aware that it is
accessible by steamship and involve
no land travel to reach it. A fair there
could not help but rouse his interest.
Of Chicago he knows little. He never
saw a ship ot steamer with its name on
the stern and his ideas of the magnitude
and position of the place are conlus.ed.
To find Chicago he would have to risk
the vicissitudes of a thousand miles of
railway travel in a far country and so
he stays at home.
Wise policy will put any future Atner
ican exposition at the city of New
York, to which all steamship and rail
road lines lead. f oreigners will go
there with ut a second invitation, and
for local patronage, there are 4,000,
000 peo'!. in the metropolitan district
and 10,000.000 inure who can go to

HAWAII CAN HUNT SEALS.
Vessels Free to Prey Upon
Washington, August 29. "We got
the hot end of "the stock,'' remarked
Captain Evans, the naval secretary of
the Liehthouse Board, today, con
ceming the recent decision of
Behring sea arbitration board. Captain
Evans spent several years in the Arctic
ocean dodging icebergs and catching
poachers, and is as familiar with the by
ways of that sea as the husbandman is
with the p..ths in his garden.
On every contention,'' continued
Captain Evans, "the United States was
beaten with the single exception of the
foi bidding the use o( fiiearms in captur
ing seals, and on this point the regula
tions prescribed are impracticable.
The sixty-mile limit is entirely valueless
from a practical point of view. The
rcttion around tne rrtDVlov islands is
constantly overhung with dense fo
making accurate observations almost
"We will be continually in dispute as
to whether, in case a seizure is made
for violating the regulations, the dis
tance is sixty, seventy 1 r forty miles
from the islands. The entire navy of
the Lnited States, with the Knulish
navy tnrowo in, could not tstatMisii aniorrlCE huuksi B tog a.m., i 103P.M.,

he poachers, which are usually light
crafts, could easily slip through the
marine patrol, attack the seals on the
islands, and in the dense fogs escape
with out detection. Even if seen raid
mg the seal rooktries, the war ships
could net pursue them cU.se to the
reef-infested islands, as the waters ate
utisurveyed and currents unknown, anil
the risks, therefore, would be entirely
too great to be undertaken.
"'I he most effective means, per'uaps
of protecting the seals would be a large
land force, sufficiently strong to repel
my ordinary attack.
tewed in any light, we can g 'l
little comfort out of the decision. 1 he
permission to kill seals after August lit
amounts to nothing, as the seals in thai
season ate in what is called a 'stagey
conditii 11,' and the skins are unfit h r
c imiuercial use. No one ever kills
them then unless in pi r' malice.
'"Even ihe restriction as regards the
use of firearms is of little value. A
vessel clears, say for hunting purpose
to the North Arctic. Her equipments
c insist of implements for whale an
seal fishing, including a limited num
ber of guns for shooting wild fowl in
ihe extreme north. She is boarded b)
a United States man-of-war, whose
right is doubtful at best. The firearms
are found, and then comes the con
tention, whether the vessel intended to
use the arms for capturing seals or for
killing fowl for food.
" Thus we will be in hot water all the
time. Then, again, the decision of the
liering Sea Commission affects only
liritish and American vessels Haviuo
declared Bering sea to be an open sea,
the vessels of all nations are, of course,
entitled to plough its waters and catch
fish and seals at will.
"The Bering sea decision can iot, of
course, bind the Government! of
France, Germany, Japan and other
nations engaged in whale and seal fish
eries. It annexation should be de
layed Hawaii might try her hand. So
that, looking at it from a practical
point of view, it seems that the regula
lU ns are impracticable and cannot
be enforced at less expense than $1000
for every seal's life preserved.'1
