By the terms of the contracts under which
Portuguese immigrants bar been brought into
this Kingdom, it is made a condition to be observed
by the Board of Immigration, and the employers
to whom the naid Board shaU assign its contracts,
that the children of such immigrants " shall be
prnpevly imtructed in the Fvhlic Schools." It is
the opinion cf the Board of Education that the
proper instruction of children of European races
cannot be obtained through the medium of the
common free schools of the Kingdom, which are
taught in the Hawaiian language. But in order
that they shall receive the "proper" instruction
stipulated in the agreements, they should be sent
to the public schools that are conducted in the
English language, in which it is a rule of the
Board to charge $5.00 per annum tuition fees, and
that the said fees should not be chargeable to the
parents, but to their employers.

The followiug id a copy of the protest made
by Mr. Hoffnung before the steamer Hansa sailed
from Lisbon, referred to in the letter of our Lou
don correspondent which we publish to-day :
"I, Abraham Hoffnung, being a British sub
ject, resident in the city of London, and being
charged with the equipment and dispatch of
vessels and steamers chartered by order of the
Hawaiian Board of Immigration to convey emi
grant passengers to that Kingdom, do declare
and make oath as follows:
"That the steamship Hansa was chartered in
London on the 26th of May last to convey cargo,
mails and passenser9 from London to Lisbon
und St. Michaels, aud thence to Honolulu.
"That the steamer was built on the Clyde by
builders of the highest repute, as a first-class
passenger steamer, that she is classed 100 A. 1.
at Lloyds (whose certificates is hereto attached)
being the highest classification - of the most
competent and trustworthy authority in tke
"That after the steamer was fitted up for tho
accommodation of emigrant passengers I had'
ner ngam tuny surveyed by two competent sur
veyors of shipping and marine of great repute in
London, whoso certificate, declared before the
Portuguese Consul-General in London i hereto
xnai tnus wen equipped ana amply pro
visioned for the voyage the Hansa arrived in the
Tagu3 on the 6th of June for the purpose of
conveying passengers who had undertaken ,to go
in her to Honolulu on conditions whih had
been made known, namely, that free 'passages
would be granted to those who would undertake
to work for the Hawaiian Board of Immigration
lor three years in consideration of good wages,
with free board and lodging for themselves and
families, and free education for their children,
and the fullest protection under the Hawaiian
' laws equally with the citizens of that Kingdom.
! inat in oraer to complete lier store of pro-
visions ana to see tnat every thing necessary
j should be provided, I came as passenger in the
rlansa lrom .London to Lisbon.
"That on the day of my arrival I was informed
that the notary who had been appointed to re-
i cognizu the agreements which the passengers
j were to make, suggested some verbal alterations
so as to bring them in direct accordance with
i the Portuguese law, which I piomptly ordered
j to be doue
j ''That iu the meantime the passengers (of
whom 400 were advised ready to embark) arriv
j ing and having neither food nor shelter were re
j ceived on beard the steamer at the solicitation
of the agents, notwithstanding that they had not
j yet fulfilled the conditions which entitled them
i to a free passage.
i "That on the 30th ultimo the notary proceeded
on board the Hansa and having read over to
j them, the passengers, the terms and conditions
( of the agreements they had undertaken to make,
; they willingly signed them, with one exception,
! who in consequence was sent ashore.
"That on the following day the notary re
j turned to the agent of the Board of Immigration
' the agreements which had been signed by the
passengers, but without his recognition, stating
) that he could not recognize them, although he
j had previously stated that they were in strict
i accordance with the Portuguese law as evidenced
by the fact that he had procured the signatures
of the passengers to them.
"That on the 29th ultimo a gentleman, who
I stated that he was the Chief of the River Police
. came on board the Hansa and took as many
i passengers on shore as could be indued to go,
stating that complaints had been made that
their liberty was restricted or that they were
illegally detained ; but seeing that the Hansa
was moored in theTagns and that Custom House
guards and officers were constantly on board,
such a charge could hardly have been serious,
and was certainly contrary to fact.
" That the visits of the police boat and the
conveyance of the passengers backwards and
forwards between the steamer and the shore
were repeated several times between the 29th of
June and 1st of July, against the peace, com
fort, and rights of those who came in her on
" That many of the passengers returned how
ever, haying declared themselves perfectly satis
fied and wishful to complete their voyage not
withstanding that they had been strongly dis
suaded from so doing. ,
" That the consigness of the Hansa being wish
ful to give her every dispatch applied for the
privilege of a packet for her, and that upon its
being suggested in the press that this was done
in order to avoid an official inspection of the
steamer, I ordered the patent to be declined and
an inspection to be at once invited
"That the request for this inspection was
made on the morning of the 30th of June and
on the evening of the lat of July, the Captain of
the Port, the Director of the Custom House, the
Chief of the River Police, and a number of other
gentlemen came on Board for this purpose.
"That the Chief of the liiver Police then pro
duced a book in which he stated were contained
the laws relating to the business upon which
they had come and demanded 1st, a list of pas
sengers about to sail in the steamer; but seeing
thai until after this inspection we did not know
what number of passengers we should be per
rmitted to take, and that the Chief of the River
Police had himself so frequently altered the
number of our passengers by his action the
officers of the steamer were not in a position to
say on the instant how many passengers re
mained on board. I requested him therefore,
to give me a few minutes' time in order to pre
pare the required list and, as there appeared
much else to do, I proposed to attend to other
matters in the meantime. This the Chief of the
River Police refused, and said he must do his
duty in the order of the law he declared the
inspection suspended and informed us that if we
wished to proceed with it, we must make a fresh
petition, and other days would be appointed,
and he intimated that the inspection of the

' Th, t in the tr.c:iiitiir.e the jenlN -men who
came with him commenced an unoilicial ex
amination of the steamer (preparatory to the re
sumption of the regular survey at a future time)
of a most extraordinary character. They brought
with them instruments of Tarious kinds with
which they commenced to scrape the deck and
floors of the steamer, ripping open the seams,
and picking out the packing, guaging tke iron
beams and plates and making observations al
together singular and unusual; indeed one of
the men volunteered the statement to the Capt.
of the steamer that during twenty years he had
been in Lisbon he had never known f.ieh an in
spection and examination to be ordered.
' That before leaving the steamr r the Chief of
the River Police not having succeeded iu entic
ing any of the passengers to go on ehore, not
withstanding that he ordered them so to do, he
took with him the two cooks and steward who
had been engaged by the Captain to serve the
passengers, and who had received wages in ad
vance, because these men expressed themselves
dissatisfied. It is easv to appreciate at it true
value the dissatisfaction of men who, having a
substantial share of their wages iu their pockets
which has been paid to them in advance, find
encouragement from the antuonties to escape
service they have undertaken to perform. Thet
Captain of the Port who wa present and was
appealed to by the Capt. of the steamer, in
formed the Chief of Police that he was violating
the law as the men had been regularly iuarti-
cled and formed part of the crew of th steamer,
and that he forbade the men being sent ashore,
but the Chief ot the River Police persisted, sav
ing that he had the authority of the Civil Gov
ernor for his action, and that the Captain of the
steamer could refer the case to the British
" That finding ourselves thus left with pas
sengers on board whose agreements the authori
ties delayed recognizing and deprived of
the service of men were indispensable for
the convenience and comfort of the pas
sengers, I had no option but to order them to be
6ent on shore to-day, being unwilliug in any
case to take them unless with the full consent
and good will of the authorities.
That under the foregoing circumstances I
have reluctantly arrived at the conclusion that
it is the desire of the authorities, or some of
them, to hinder delav and obstruct the intention
of the Hansa in taking cniigraut to the Ha
waiian Islands which I came hero prepared to
do in accordance with the laws of the Kingdom
of Portugal and of the Hawaiian Islsuds, and
having thus been hindered, obstructed and de
layed, and compelled thereby to leave the port
of Lisbon without being permitted in the or
dinary course to accomplish mv lawful business.
I have suffered great loss aud damage, and hold
the Portuguese Government and its subordinates
responsible for said loss and damage as soon ns
the same shall have been ascertained.

T5E " MILITARY CRAZE" AGAIN.
General Ilartwell has authorised a pub
lished statement that he, when Attornev-
Oeneral iu 1874, merely proposed the or
ganisation of a body of men (then in service
simply a9 contract laborers) into a force
in accordance with military rules and
military laws, which statement is substan
tially what we bave said on this subject,
that General Ilartwell Is the author.
founder and father of our present so-called
The General wishes it to be understood
that he did not at that time plan any aug
mentation of force, and that what lie did in
the way of special force was to organise a
body of foreigners, in consequence of the
disaffection of the native people, who, as
alleged, threatened to endanger the public
safety. Now we assert that to General
Ilartwell belongs the credit or discredit of
being the originator and organiser of a
special native force viz., of the present
'King's Guard." of the "Prince's Own"
Crps, and of the "Mamalahoa Volunteer
.After the Court House ltiot in 1874
General Hartwell, then a member of King
ivaiaKaua's government, gave orders for
the drill of squads of men under Major
Moehonua, Captain Kahai, Captain Ka,
and Captain W. M. Gibson! The latter
named officer had charge of the recruiting
and drill of this new native force, under
General Hartwell's instructions and orders,
and Sir. Wilder had charge of the recruiting
and drill of the new force of foreign volun
teers. General Hartwell proclaimed at the
time the country's need of an "Armed
Force." The uegligence of the authorities
in the past was deplored, and we assert that
General Hartwell was justified at the time
in question in recruiting aud organising an
" Amed Force" to aid iu preserving the
peace of the country.
In our present small force we onlv see
General Hartwell's plans of " Military
Force" partially carried out, and we regret
that General Hartwell or any of his politi
cal sympathisers should take exception to,
or comment upon, the small guard at the
Palace, and the small squad of volunteers
as an evidence of what is termed a "Mili
tary Craze." We say emphatically if such
an insignificant force is to be sneered at
and commented upon, as an evidence of an
unwise and foolish desire to have a show of
force not warranted by the present condi
tion and circumstance of this community,
we cnarge uenerai a. h. nartweu as the
sole responsible author of the initiation
and existence of our so-called " Military

The revenue of this Kingdom during
the past biennial period amounted to
$2,070,259.94, and of this amount $396,024.37,
or less than twenty per cent, of the whole
revenue was obtained by direct taxation
on real and personal property, and it will be
apparent to all that this Government could
be carried on by economical management,
maintain its present organization, and
keep up in an efficient manner its foreign
relations, even if not one dollar of direct
Ligation in property were paid into the
lbe chief item or revenue is from foreign
imports, 8719,245.30, aud some of the other

Now, in the face of the above statement,
what grounds of grievance, or even shadow
of complaint, have parties who allege
oppression by direct property taxation,
when it must be apparent that if real and
personal property was exempt from assess
ment the Government could be con
ducted, and the administration of aflair9
be carried out completely even though
somewhat limited and restricted. We
know of parties in this community
who are agitating this subject, not
on account of oppressive taxation, which
does not exist, but of the fear which
they pretend, to feel of the bare possibility

Whatever views may beentertalned about
the political character of this ceremonial
there can be no doubt it will promote busi

shall have visitors and rcpiesentatlvea from
various parts, and the invitation now In
course of preparation are not numbered by
hundreds but by thousands.
The ceremonial and festivities that will
commence on the 12th of February next
will be the opening of anew era of busy

who are inclined to grumble at the cost
and expenditure of public money, should

obvious to all that the large consumption

activity that must be brought Into play by
the expenditure of not only the few thou

the much larger sunns of money that will

interest of people of property now estab

waiian Independence. Hawaiian Indepen
dence will be maintained and strengthened
by supporting Hawaiian nationality, which

The arrival of Captain Belknap in port
in command of the Alaska, will awaken In
the minds of old residents, reminiscense of
the Court House riot, February 12th, 1874
Captain Belknap at the time was in com
mand of the United Ktates steamship Tus
carora, and he then had with him Lieuten
ant Daneuhower, since associated so honor
ably with Arctic exploration In the Jean
nette, under the brave De Long. And the
names of Jewell Norri, Hyde, (Sut herland,
and Veeder of the Tuscarora, are remem
bered as household words. The place of the
Tuscarora boys, after dispersing the rioter
was at the Armory, whilst the Portsmouth
boys took charge of the Court House. It
was plain to the American commander at
that time, that although the riot had as
sumed very serious proportions on account
of the unwise policy of disbanding what
ever armed force had existed iu thocountry;
yet the native rioters never threatened In
the slightest degiee, tho persons or prop
erty of Americans or other foreigners aud
they soon withdrew their marines and eva
cuated the city iu company with the Brit
ish force of marines of H. 11. M. ti. Tenedos.
Captain IJclknap, conjoin'ly with the other
commanders, .Skerrett and Hay, received
tne thanks of the Consular Corps; and the
Nation then said: " We shall endeavor to
preveut another occasion for a Joint occu
pation, but if there does unfortunately,
arise one, we shall be glad to have the pro
tection of such jdcasant gentlemen as those
in command of the Tuscarora, the Ports
mouth and the Tenedos."
We call attention to the number of hoaxes
that have lately been palmed off on the
public. The publisher of these canardi
state that certain meetings of the Cabinet
have been held, from which remarkable
conversations are reported for Instance,
That legal action was to be taken against
certain papers." "That parties had been
appointed to Japan and other missiens."
That all the Museum funds had been ex
pended." These statement are mere in
ventions, being utterly without foundation,
and are a very poor substitute for genuine
news. .They may amuse for awhile, but
their repetition becomes monotonous.
