Tho Hawaiian question has como
up in a nw form throtiKh a request
that tho United States Oovoruinont
permit Groat Britain to lease a
wholo inland of tiio Hawaiian Rrotip
as a enhlo f-tatiou on tho routn of
tho proposed lino from Vancouver
to Nnv Zaland and Australia. Tho
oxiBtini,' treaty bet w eon tho United
States aud Hawaii specifically for-
bids any such grant to a third ,
power; and consequently a leaso
could not bo uiado without our vol- ,

sivo position nud claim, i'rnsidout '
Cleveland has sent tho correspond-1
onco in this innlter to tho Senate,
and has recommended an unquali
fied acquiosconco iu tho proposal. It
is scarcely to bo expected, however,
that tho Sonato should show so
amiahlo a disposition. At least tho
question is quite certain to aroiuo a
spirited debate. It would bo diili
.cult, surly, to coujuro up any good
reason wh v a telegraph lino should bo
excluded from the Sandwich Islands;
for telegraphic communication with
the larger world is ono of tho chief
needs of tho group. Hut it has not
been made clear why tho opening of
' an oflico in tho Siudwich Islands by
a submarino cable company should
require tho leasing of an island to
a European Government. Wo have
not hoard that tho American com
, pauy which operates a cable lino to
i tho west coaJt of South America has
over found it necessary to havo tho
government of tho Uuited States so
euro long leases of islands or pro
' viuces at poiuts whero its tele
' graph offices aro open for business.
, There aro great numbers of foreign
" ors engaged in commercial opera
tions in the Saudwich Islauds, and
many of them have offices and ware
: houses in Honolulu. A telegraph
company might open its offices oil
equal terms with any of them. Noth
ing in President Cleveland's com
munication to tho Senate, and noth
ing iu tho correspondence which ao
companied it, seems to us to throw
, tho slightest gleam of light upon
tho first question that arises iu etory
inquiring mind. Acquiring posses
sion of an isluud, and putting
it under tho direction of tho Brit
ish Government, is ono thiuir:
opening au office for tho transac
tion of business by a submarino
cablo company is another thing.
But what has tho ono to do with the
olhort If theroaro reasons why a
telegraph oflico requires a separate
island under a soparato Hag, that do
not also apply to any steamship lino
that serves tho Sandwich Islands
eKularlr. wo havo not as vot luum
made to understand wherein the
Long before tho plan of a cable
liuo from Canada across tho Pacific
was over thought of, there had been
much discussion of a liuo connect
ing tho Saudwich Islauds with Cali
fornia. Tho Uuitod States govern
mont has made oxpoiisivo surveys
aud soundings in order to discover
the best route. Ninety percent of
the actual busiuess to bo transacted
over a cable liuo connecting tho Isl
auds with Aorlh America would pro
bably pertain to the Uuitod States.
The Japanese government has shown
Eomo interest in tho establishment
of a cable lino to tho United States
by wyI Hawaii, and .Japan's now

much to this interest. There
would seem to bo uo reasou,
then, for tho sudden abandonment
of tho long-considered plan of a Pa
cific cable from California to Hono
lulu and theueo to Japan, whero it
would havo connection with all parts
of Asia. But if tho United States
Buoiikl too oagorly abet tho plan for
cablo from Now Zealaud to tho
western terminus of the Northorn
Pacific railroad, the rosult might bo
very greatly to diminish tho pros
pouts of an American liuo that would
probably servo our purposes more
completely. It is quite truo that wo
Biiouiit Ut-rivo mucli eomm.rc inl
fornia, it would seem peculiar, to say
tho least, if wo should without dis
cussion nbaudou that idea, and not
only uivo our commercial encourage
ment to Iho proposed liuo under
Uritish auspices, but also go so far
as to make over to Great Britain an
island in tho Hawaiian group.
Canadian and Australian statesman
ship and commercial energy are
worthy of much praise for their ef
forts to establish belter facilities of
communication in the Pacific ocean.
But the Uuited States has far great
er interests than these colonies, aud
should act with due caution.
WAS IT FKOM BOMBS P
Houeo nt Moltlllt Blown Vp This
Mornitii; by a Fierce Fxplosion.
A hotiso owned by a native named
Kahalewai, at Kamoiliili, ou tho ma
kai side of tho old stone church, was
blown up about !l o'clock this morn
ing. As luek would havo it thero
were no occupants at the time of
theexplosion. Captain Scott of the
police force went out to investigate
tho affair. Ho found an elderly na
tive named Papa, grandfather of tho
owner of tho house, aud from him
he gained the following facts:
Papa went to sleep nt tho homo
Sunday evening, lie turned in early
on a mattress on tho lloor. Fouling
chilly Papa got up and lit nu oil
stove, placing it near his feet. He
was awakened at 10 o'clock by a sen
sation of heat about his whiskers.
Ho started up aud feeling his chin
found that his beard was singed.
When ho had fully awakened he
made the diieovery'that tho blanket
was ou firo. Ho secured a bucket of
water aud dashed it over tho firo aud
tho stove. Ho repealed the opera
tion till ho became sati-fied that the
firo was out. Papa then picked up
the blanket and oil stovo aud throw
them out. Tho old man was mado
so nervous by tho incident that ho
would not stop iu tho house. He
left tho place aud went to a neigh
bor's house about 200 yards from
his house, whero he slept tho rest of
t .'1 o'clock this morning a ter
rific explosion was heard in the
house vacated by Papa, scaring resi
dents iu that locality nearly out of
their wits. Several natives wont
over and discovered the room whero
the old man had slept blown to
pieces, boards being found quite a
distauco away. The partition of an
adjoining room was blown down,
while there was nothing left intact
of tho outside wall. Captain Scott
brought Papa in to tho Queeu's
Hospital, With Mm exception of a
singed beam lie s" U'-'t injured, but
ho is terribly scared ami wn3 0l.'v"
able to mutter a few words iui.4'
Tho captain found tho blanket aud
oil stove, also tiio hat and boots of
tho old mau, aud brought them into
town. One theory is that thero was
some powder under tho bed and, if
tho firo had not been properly ex
tinguished, it might have wormed it
self to tho place where tho powder
was. Tho old man, in fact no ono
who has lived at the house, knew
that thoro was any powder on tho
premises. Considerable blasting has
boon douo iu that locality during
some time past, aud it is thought
that some of tho giant powder used
for blasting purposes found its way
into the house. Tho story given by tho
old man is corroborated by tho find
ing of the articles belonging to him.
ThecxploBion was distinctly heard
in towu. Ono of tho Buluvtin stall"
took tho timo on hearing it, and it
was sovou minutos after three. It
sounded like tho distant roport of a
cannon, and suggested fear of a
dynamite bomb explosion. As Now
loin's party that were carrying
bombs, according to evidence heforo
the court-martial, wero captured in
tho idontical locality of tho explo
sion, a theory as probable as
tho ono just mentioned, to say
tho least, is that ono or more
of tho bombs woro hidden in or bo
, neath tho houso where tho explosion
occurred. Tho wator thrown by the
old man might easily have washed a
streak of burning oil through a ore
vico aud thus convoyed lire to the
fuse of a bomb.
