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
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

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

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

now the company are willing to add
incivility. This is only the natural
result of the attitude of the company

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.

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

Julius rainier, tlio Irrepressible, has
been nutting hiintielf forward ' in de
bate before the Massachusetts lleform
club. 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

worth. Without such a golden oppor
