.Last Thusrtlay some ver' proper
compliments were paid to Hon. W. C.
Parke, on his retirement from the
oflice of Marshal of the Kingdom,
which he has so long held. The mem
bers of the Bar had proposed in con
clave certain resolutions which were
submitted to their Honors the Judges
in open Court, for presentation to Mr.
Parke, and a number of them took
the opportunity te make kindly re
marks about the veteran official who
has just retired from a service which
has lasted for a generation, and has
extended over a transition period in
the social, commercial, and political
history of Hawaii.
Mr. Dole, and at least one other
sptaker could not lose the opportu
nity of saying something spiteful
against the Government in the course
K-s AW .ire snrnMsl
that Mr. Dole should have so far for-
gotten the dictates of good taste as to
ho fntriMrol in aimh a nhfifl and
m-a -m v m- w j
on such an occasion remarks like
those with which he concluded his
speech. As for those who followed
him in this strain we never save
them credit for the culture or dis
crimination which would save them
from this vulgarity and as they have
the excuse that they followed Mr.
Dole's deliberate lead we have noth
ing to say about them. Any way
they and what they might choose to
say are not worthy of any considera
tions. Except for this marring ele
ment, the occasion was one of high
interest. Not a member of the Bar,
not a Judge on the Bench was to be
found in Court when the late Mar
shal first fulfilled there the duties of
his oflice. Called to the post by
Kamehameha III., at the request of
Judge Lee; and John Young, the
Kuhina Nui of the day, because of the
personal prowess and determined will
he had displayed at a time when
Honolulu was threatened with
mob rule, he has grown old
and grey in the service. He
has the personal respect and
friendship of the community, both
Hawaiian and foreign. How he is
thought of by the large number of
men who have served under him was
feelingly expressed by Mr. "V. O.
Smith in the speech with which he
followed Mr. Dole at the proceedings
in Court on Thursday. He leaves his
office for political reasons solely,
without a stain on his character as
an omcial discharging most impor
tant functions, without a blur in a
long public career, with .the affec
tionate remembrances of those who
have been his subordinates, and with.
the sustaining conviction in his own
heart that he has never spared him-
self night or day in the service of his
adopted country.
Por some years past it has been the
fashion with all that section of the
press which is now found in oppoal
tion to the Administrations to revile
the late Marshal, t9 rake up with care
every canard that might throw a
slight on his administration of his
important department, to put the
blame of every petty thing that went
wrong upon his head, and to intr
mate that his time had gone by, that
changed circumstances needed a new
man to cope with them. This journal
has been jeered at for giving him its
support. Those who controlled the
editorial columns of the Advertiser
looked below the surface and saw
that in the peculiar circumstances of
this country, with its strangely mixed
population, with the many exigen
cies resulting from the rapid develop
ment of industries controlled by for
eigners and involving the employ of
mass of laborers under exceptional
conditions, the Police Department
was. in spite of all shortcomings, per
forming its duties as satisfactorily
on the whole as that of many much
more favored countries. With this
conviction, born of earnest investiga
tion of the facts, they did not Hesitate
to give tneir support to tne late .Mar
shal against the interested enemies
who used the columns ot our
contemporaries to assail him. Under
these circumstances it is refreshing
to find prominent representatives of
tne upposiiion iranKlyand unnesnat
ingly taking the sameground and
supporting Mr. Parke with the irap
There is another point in the Rev
Mr. Bishop's argument as to which
it appears to us that he has accepted
a commonly received opinion as if it
were an unanswerable argument.
After reviewing the tendencies ef the
country and declaring them to be
in the direction of an Euglsih civili
zation in v the widest sense of
that term, and through the prox-
imitv of the United States to the
American type of that civilization
he says "the foregoing also indicates
tha necessary answer to the Question-
- mf - A
OCTOBER 14 1884
as to our political future. The com
ing form of government will be that
of America. It will be Republican.
Republican government has passed
beyond' the stage of experiment and
established itself as the true and the
best form for all enlightened peoples.
Long since established in the Ameri
can majority of English people, it lias
become virtually the political form of
all the rest- Monarchy in England
has surrendered all its power, aud in our weakness as a State what has
retains only its dignities, it is tin- j been denied to many powerful na
reasouable to suppose that these j tions. And this has not been through
Islands as a civilized community will j a mere outburst f friendship and
not iu due time follow the general! kindly condescension. Our Japanese
example. As in due time the native
sovereigntv comesjto its natural end,
whethtr by the decay of the native
people, the lack of chiefs, or a ijeueral
end of its usefulness, there will cease
to be any other possible rallying
point for a throm?, even if there were
any further call for such an institu
tion. Republican government will
be the natural, fitting and obvious
arrangement. No other seems pos
sible.'' Now this phrase ' Republican
government has passed beyond the
stage of experiment, and established
itself as the true and the best form for
all enlightened people" may be the
expression of a sentiment wide-spread
in America and in France, but it is
far from having the sanction of the
united opinion of all u enlightened
peoples," and still further from being
logically proved as a deduction from
the sum total of our knowledge of
human history. Our grand-children
will probably live to see the day
when the Republican u experiment "
will have been exhaustively com
pleted and abandoned both in America
and France. The Democratic form
of government is necessarily the first
crude method of any people whatso
ever. Sooner or later, it inevitably de
velopes into an oligarchy.. Under
that form of government, some of the
greatest national successes have been
accomplished that are recorded in the
history of the world. But the end of
an oligarchy is always a monarchy,
eitner aeveiopea irom witnm, or
super-imposed from without. It is
our custom to suppose that with our
modern civilization, our machinery,
our steam, and our mastery of electri
city, we are quite a divine sort of
people compared to those who went
before us. Such is far from being the
fact. In ethics in philosophy and in
the science of government, mankind
remains from age to age measurably
the same, simply because it is still
mankind. There is a rythmic flow
and lapse of special forms of opinion,
and -of consequent practice, but the
same things ever repeat themselves,
and will continue to do so until the
end of all things.
This country seems to us to be about
the last in the world which, under
any social development that is possi
ble to it, can expect to contain the
elements of a happy liepublic, ana
we nope it may be spared a piuuge
into this favorite political "experi
ment of the age.
It is with pleasure that we learn
that arrangements have been satis
factorily completed by Mr. Cousul
General Irwin for.the emigration of
Japanese laborers to this country,
and that we may expect to see a
steamship in our harbor next month
flying in all probability the Japanese
flag, and bringing the first install
ment of this new accession to our
labor force, iu number about G00.
This is undoubtedly good news.
There are so many slips 40 twixt cup
and lip" in human affairs that not
withstanding all seemed fair and
promising when Col. laukea left
Japan, we have awaited with a real
anxiety the further news which has
now come to band. We believe that
Whole No. 1494
j these arrangements for Japanese iin
j migration mark a most important
era in me History 01 me agricultural
enterprise of this country. The suc
cess of the movement wo undoubted
ly owe to the cordial personal rela
tions which have been established
between King Kalakaua and the
Emperor of Japan ajd many high
and influential officials of the Em
pire. There has been conceded to ua
friends d not do things in that way.
The Japanese Govern men: seldom
makes a move without knowing
i exactly what it is doing. However
superior to 1! 111 physical strength
and for warlike
governments of
western na
tions may be they have ever found
a mulch in the diplomatic ability of
the statesmen of the Empiiv of the
Rising Sun. The Japanese Govern
ment has taken nothing for granted
about us, and before listening to the
persuasions which Col. laukea and
Mr. Irwin had authority (o use, .they
knew from the evidence of their own
Envoys that what these gentlemen
had to tell them was in accordance
with facts and that what they under
took to promise on behalf of the Ha
waiian Government was sure to be
fulfilled. The day will surely come
when the pains that has been taken
by the King and by his recent Minis
ters bo cultivate close relations of
friendhip with the Emperor of Japan
and his great officers of State will no
longer be sneered at as a vain show
of diplomacy or cavilled at because It
cost a few thousand dollars.
Among our planters "the first ques
tion that will present itself when they
hear that a number of Japanese im
migrants will arrive here within a
few weeks from this time will be
what is this class of labor likely to
cost. To this the reply may safely
be made that it will be the cheapest
in point of money cost per head per
annum that they have had the
benefit of for a long time past. Then
arises the iuquiry what about the
quality? We are assured that .the
laborers who are coming are all
trained agricultural laborers from the
interior of Japan none of the loafers
about big towns who- know nothing
of country work. We are informed
that Mr. Irwin himself speaks of
them as " first-class sugar-planting
laborers." Now Mr. Irwin has been
here himself, and did not lose any of
his time while he was here, neither
did the men interested in planting
whom he fnet here fail to give him
freely the benefit of their own ideas
a 1 m it w -r r , m
as to wnat is wanted, we iurtner
learn that Mr. Irwin expects to be
-able to send us five hundred immi
grants per month all through 1885 if
the Government be prepared to au
thorize him to arrange for such an
influx. Of these immigrants he finds
that the rroportion which will best
suit the people and the Government
will be four-fifths men, and one-fifth
women. With these are likely to
come about ten per cent, of children.
These proportions will please the
planters, who are always groaning
about the large proportion of women
and children they have to take along
with their Portuguese laborers. To
the country at large they will hardly
be so acceptable. One-fifth of women
is of course a great improvement com
pared with the Chinese immigration
which was so loner tolerated here, a
resumption of which eur planters
seem disposed to sigh for. But it is
really not a large enough proportion
for the good of the country. We need
in fact a large immigration of women
irrespective of all questions of labor.
Anything, however, is better than re
opening the country to the immigra
tion of Chinese males a doom which
we had begun to fear might b e force,
upon us by the necessities of out
