Long beforo Japan wns given unibiago by the rejection of a large number of her emigrants at Honolulu, through tho applica tion of our general immigration laws to their case, there existed a popular alarm here ovor tho largo uiuuber of Japaueo euteiing tho country. This was not so much with regard to tho influx under tho regulations of tho Board of Immigration in nccoulauco with the Japanese labor immigration convention, ns to tho great num ber who slid in amongst thoso ns froo immigrants and showed tho 850 prescribed for all aliens as a guarautoo against their becoming a charge on the stuto, or else got round tho general laws by putting themselves in tho hands of tho Board of Immigration after arrival. During an incipient agitation of tho subject thero was much discussion of tho scope of both tho treaty of friendship and tho labor convention with Japan. The conclusion of tho wholo mat ter seemed to be that, if the ob jectionabln immigration came un tie i tiei.tj lights, eiy delicate treatment of the question would be required to establish n chock; but, on tho other hand, if it was exclusively under tho labor con vention, tho remedy was the sim ple one, contained iu that instru ment, of giving six mouths' notice of abrogation. It is cmtainly doubtful whether the freo i in mi gration of Jnpnueso wna contem plated by tho treaty of 1871, cud it is understood to bo part of tho Hawaiinu Governments case iu the prosont controversy what a wns not. Articles II. and V. uro tho crucial ones, nnd thoy nro nB follows would scorn to Imvo u bear ing. Ho'mnkcB tho following to-lunik: ' Arllrlo II, Tim miIiJwIh of contritctlug -I...H i...... th liberty frfi-ly ami securely to ri i niimi iifivu uoinu with tlii'lr Rhlps mid em-noon to nil places, ports mill rltem in thu torritorits of tlio othsr, whuro trade with otlior nation is per mitted; they tuny remain and re sidn in miy such porta and plncoa respectively, mm niro mm occupy houses mid warehouses, mid mny trndo in nil kmiia of produce, manufactures mid mprchnndioo of ' awful commerce, onjoying nt a I, havo boon, or may hercaftnr bo iiiut'o iiin nnuiu Ji iYiii'i;ua iib iiiujr granted to tho citizens or subjects of any othor nation, paying at oil times such duties and tnxos ns may ho ozneted from tho citizens or subjects of other nations doing business or residing within the torritories of each of tho high contracting parties. Articlo V. The Japanoso Gov ernment will place no restrictions whatever upon the employment by Hawaiian subjects of Jnpnueso in any lawful capacity. Japanese in the employ of foreigners may ob tain government passports to go abroad, on application to the gov ernor of any opon port. Should this Government, through arbitration or otherwise, bo required to coucodo thnt Japa neao froo immigration is stipu lated in tho foregoing articles, it will thou in ca3o of Hawaii's continued independence bo neces sary to consider how to get the treaty revised. This suggostion lends up to the question nf how far should tho principle of tho sacred ness of treaties be applied to that document. Regarding this what a writer in the Nineteenth Century, quoted in n previous article, snys in his discussion of coitnin British treaties would seem to have a bear ing. Ho makes the following remarks: All right-minded people agree, as a gpneral principle, it is a very serious matter to tamper with troaties. They certninly should not be denounced lightly because their provisions no longer suit our convenience, still less because they do not prove as advantageous to material interests aa was antici pated. Lord Salisbury's observa tion on this subject in a recent speech is well worth quoting: "I maintain that the principle of acting upon treaties to which you have deliberately acceded is a sucied principle, nnd one which lies at the base of the civilization of the world." But the treaties which he had in his mind wero great international iustrumeuts for tho settlement of far-reaching questions, and not mere commer cial conventions such as I am now dealing with. Commercial treaties havo always been temporary in their character. They are almost nlnays concluded for a fixed period, because the statesmen who negotiate them aro aware that tho conditions of commerce to which they aro intended to apply are constantly chaugiug. We have iu our own time seen commercial treaty after commercial treaty de nounced. Only a few years ago Franco terminated by due notice the famous treaty of 18G0 with which we connect the naino of Mr. Cobdcu, because she wished to regain her complete liberty of action and start upon a fresh career of protoction. Who can successfully affirm that the, treaty between Japan and Hawaii is anything but a com mercial compact, mutable in its character according to changing circumstances, like the conven tions described iu tho fqrogoing English opinion ? Although it was concluded as "perpetual," "commercial treaties have always been tomporary in their charac ter," but ouly "almost" always concluded for a fixod period, ac cording to tho authority here cited. Auy other appoiutmout than that of Mr. McStockcr to tho office of Collector General of Customs now vacant would bo bo much out of due ordor as to bo absurd. Al though tho priuciplo of promoliou mid regard for seniority havo uot been established in gov ernment affairs horo, yet thoso considouitious havo gonoially boon uccoided nioroor less woight.

This week we want to call the attention of the public to the excellence of the AERMOTOR WINDMILLS for which we are the sole agents for the Hawaiian Islands. The merits of these wind mills are so well known that their repetition would be tire some. It is sufficient to state that the Aermotors will run when all others are at a stand still. They are self-reulatinc requiring- no attention what ever beyond an occasional drop of "oil. There are more Aermotors sold in the islands than all other makes of wind mills combined. Among those who have re cently purchased Aermotors of us may be mentioned Minister Damon, who has one at Moana lua; Ainister Cooper one at his new Ahnoa mansion; Paul lsenberg is so well satisfied with them that he has no less than four at his Waialae place. we can snow an Aermotor Windmill in actual operation which pumps water 4000 feet to an elevation of 190 feet. There is no other that will do this. We can furnish the Aer motor with pumping mills or geared to run machinery. These latter will perform all the work of a one to four horse power engine. In connection with these windmills we supply Gould's and Krogh's triple acting siphon and other pumps and patent water tanks of ?00, 1000, 2000, JOOO, ?000 and 10,000 gallons capacity.
