Tlie annexation o the Hawaiian Is lands by the United States is a far more Important measure to the world than it is 1o the United States. It is the announcement of a policy which will have enduring and lasting marks upon the next century, and the act, about which there ' can now be no doubt, will make U fitting end to tin; nineteenth and a beginning to the twentieth. , The Pacific is undoubtedly the arena in which the great play of the next century will come. The ultimate end of all our mundane systems of government wo do not know; but this we do know, that the powers of the world rose on the Asiatic continent, passed to Europe, and are now going west to that continent undreamed of in the days of Egypt, Assyria, I'ersia, Greece, Koine, nnd the medieval pow ers of Europe, a continent regarded as a mere means of acquiring wealth by the later times, and which has now grown to such proportions that de spite its newness which it is the conservative nature of the bulk of 7uaukiiid to hate lias acquired a dom inance in tiie world. With the acquisition of the Hawaii an Islands will come, as soon as Ame rican energy . can accomplish it, a cable to the central point in the l'aei Jle. Following in a natural course will be the Nicaragua canal. For a moment consider what a revolution this will make in the commerce of this ocean. Lose sight of mere local questions of annexing the Islands and tlio troubles about a petty throne. Lose sight of even who possesses the Islands, and merely look' at the mag' nilieent results which are bound to conie about for the commercial rela tions of the earth. . , In this ocean the East and the West meet. The trade c f two great streams of humanity will mingle on its waves, and it is here that the ultimate end of many varying civilizations will be worked out. What that end will be none of us canknow, but we do know , that the end must be for the ultimate good for races which at present are extremely antagonistic. Ky tile annexation of the Hawaiian Islands the policy is practically an nounced that the future of the Paci fic is in the hands of a civilization Hint has produced the greatest at thinkers, the most brilliant of sol diers and sailors, and the finest com mercial men of the world. Tliis is what annexation, means when one regards it from a high (Standpoint, and it is no wonder that those who have been pledged to its -advancement have stood firmly to H, through good and evil report. The trouble with many people is that their horizon is limited. They 'see merely the present and care little for the future. Those who have help ed on annexation may hnvo mixed motives it is true, but the ultimate re sult will be greater than they caleulat ed. The mere act of annexation is nothing, the gain or loss to particular parties here is nothing. Hut jn the general advancement of the Western civilization in the Pacific world, the annexation of 'theso 'Islands to the United 'States is one of those steps in advance, which from its far reaching results will lie epoeli making. It will mark that the Northern Pacific is a lake over which the Stars and Stripes will dominate. (Mentally, nt the meeting under re view, .lullus stated that nit the peo ple, outside of Ids own particular set, vtiM'c liars, perhaps the term ought to be modified as he modified It or his Itostoit audience, his words were! "Those now In control of theln (tin Inland) find It impossible to tell the truth," but the meaning is better con veyed In the short Anglo-Saxon term. Pro tensor llollls of Harvard took .lulius to pieces somewhat and Oor litiiu 1), til I inn it followed him, and Ad miral Kelknap clinched the argument, and added that to "buck out now would be u national disgrace." After which nothing more was heard from .lulius, but wliat a virulent tongue the little man has. Complaints of nil kinds come about the Tramway companies. Yesterday a gentleman came to The Star with an account of very insolent behavior on the part of One of the drivers. We hnvo had complaints of dirt, of slow ness, of many inconveniences, but now the company are willing to add incivility. This is only the natural result of the attitude of the company towards the public. The company has positively assumed the attitude of, the Public be d , and it is no wonder if the drivers take up" n like position towards people who growl, but cannot kick. When is that new company going to materialize. There is no time like the present! Secretary llliss, in his report upon the forests of the United States, mourns the fact that he has insuillci cut means for establishing a forestry department. At tills session of Con gress lie, will ask for n greatly in creased appropriation in order to have a properly trained corps to patrol and look after the government forest res ervations, but it is probable that the United States Congress will ask for more, nnd that certain portions of the country which are now denuded will be reforested. The Legislatures of the world are aroused on the forestry question, and ours will have to contri bute its little mite to reforestry. AX ENTEKPKISING PAPER.

The destruction of shade trees with in tlie city limits-is always to be dep recated, but when it becomes a men ace to the traveling public there is no alternative. The large monkey pod tree in Vineyard street, between Fort and Nutianiris a menace and ought to be removed. It is directly in the mid dle of the street, which has become a favorite thoroughfare, and is protect-1 ed neither by railing or light. Last Saturday evening, while driving home! from the theater a prominent society lady was given a very bad fright by her driver almost running directly In to the tree. It is stated that, a prom- inent government ofilcial interfered just as the tree was about to be chop ped down, asking that it, be spared because it was planted by one ,pf the missionaries of early days. Such sen timent may cost tlie government a heavy bit for damages unless steps I are taken to protect drivers against the obstacle. HAWAIIAN Fokt St., opjp HARDWARE to.

As a fact it does not- matter much what Mr. I'alinor says, but when lie makes the statement that Hawaiian credit Is worthless at the present time time, he indices a statement which is absolutely false. The government 'is not in straits for money. . Itccently when it wnnted money for the pur poses of public improvement, twice the required amount was subscribed, and the government made a premium upon the loan taken up The fact is there, the figures have been publish ed, and there is no refuting" them. However it is nothing new to have j Mr. Palmer making statements of this sort. It is a cheap advertising dodge and Juliu4 lias run' it for all it is worth.
