Wk conpratulate the country in having a
(.'abinet which meets the approbation of all.
We have heretofore had plenty of honesty,
and conservatism, and even nonentity and flat
ness ; but now His Majesty has shown his
discretion in yielding to the popular demand
for enterprise and action, and has commis
sioned a Cabinet which is abundantly able to
supplement with positive virtues all the nega
tive graces of past administrations. On
Thursday of last, week it was definitely an
nounced that the following gentlemen had
been invited to take office, and had uccopted
the same :
Hon. J. Mott Smith, Minister of Interior,
Hon. H. A. P. Cauteb, Minister of Foreign
Hon. J. M. Ka I'Kna, Minister of Finance,
Hon. A. S. Habtwkll, Attorney General.
The new Government is composed of men of
the highest integrity and ability, who have
for many years been favorably known in the
country, and who have long tailored to pro
mote its interests. Dr. Smith, who is nomi
nally the head of the Cabinet, has resided
here during the last twei.ty-five years, and
during the reign of Kamehameha V., was for
some time the Director of the Government
Press, from which place he was promoted to
a scat in the Cabinet, holding for two or three
years the office of Miuister of Finance. The
fXTifia c then acquired will doubtloss be of
much value to himself and the country at the
present time.
Mr. Carter is of Hawaiian birth and New
England ancestry, and is well known to be
one of the most talented men in the Kingdom,
whether native or foreign. Among the many

Mr. Kn)cna is a native Hawaiian, and owes
his appointment in part to the general desire
among the natives that their race shall be re
presented iii the Government. But aside from
the matter of nationality he is a man of fine
abilities, and has occupied the positions of
newspaper editor, circuit judge, and, for the
past year or two, the more responsible office
of Governor of Maui.
Mr. HartwcJI, who now resumes the Attor
ney Generalship hold by him for a short time
in the early part of His Majesty's reign, is a
lawyer of considerable experience, and is pos
sessed of a fine and highly cultivate! mind.
Coming to the country about ten years ago to
assume the office of First Associate Judge uf
the Supreme Court, lie lias been constantly
growing in popular esteem, and confidence,
and is universally acknowledged to be the fit
test man in the country for the duties upon
which he now enters.
The new Administration comes into power
at an important juncture in the history of
Hawaii. Vast opportunities are opening up
liefore us, giving the present Government a
chance -which we are confident it will im
prove to do incalculable good, aud to win for
itself imperishable renown.

kavtfMr. A- 1. UK.' M aiiprored
A. IV ISIa. Tfct: The aeTmral com-
age, the reasons for which we leave to the che
mists to decide. This large tract is owned by
private parties and by the Crown Estate,
there being probably from six to ten thousand
acres belonging to the latter. Efforts are now
being made by private parties interested in
some of these fertile lands to obtain from the
Government the privilege of enlarging and
extending the ditch now in the process of
construction by the Haiku Sugar Company
and others, so that it will furnish water suffi
cient to irrigate several thousand acres per
annum, instead of the one or two thousand
acres for which it is now adapted.
A question of grave imKirtance is here pre
sented for the consideration of the Govern
ment, as to whether in a case like this it
expedient to vest so valuable a franchise in
private company or corporation, where it ma
become an oppressive monopoly, or to retain
it in its own hands, and farm out the wate
bv the year to all who BUT desire it. The
data necessary for an intelligent decision
not to be had at present, and can only be ob
tained in a comprehensive and impartial man
ner through the instrumentality of the Com
mission whose report, we doubt not, the
Government will await beforo coming to an
We believe there is a most admirable oppor
tunity presented here of testing the policy of
sugar culture by small farmers. Let the
whole extent of the aliove mentioned tract of
Crown land be divided up into farms of, say
one hundred acres each, which shall be leased
for thirty years to men who will engage to
cultivate them. These farmers will, of course
require water, and can well affurd to pay fiv
or ten dollars, or even more for it, per acre
In this way a community of intelligence and
thrift would be built up which would be of
inestimable value to the country. There
would be no difficulty in leasing a thousam:
of such farms, for let it onlv be known in the
States or Europe that there were such grand
opportunities waiting for the first comers, and
there would be ten times as many applica
t.. uis as could be granted in that regiou. And
why not? Ail industrious man with a family
of boys, or with the assistance of two or three
hired men. and half a dozen mules, could
easily plant and cultivate twenty acres o
cane a year, which would net him, after pav
ing the expenses of manufacture, $5,000 or
86,000 per annum. Probably ?M,U00 a year
B-ould cover all other expenses, thus leaving
a margin for clear profit, which we may safely
assert is obtainable nowhere else in the world
from farming operations of equal scope.
But very few have any adequato idea of the
amount of water which is furnished by the
windward slope of Haleakala. From Maka
wao to Hana, a distance of some forty miles,
there is a dense almost impenetrable forest,
several miles in width, in which originates a
large number of never-failing streams. It is
proposed by the company now engaged in
ditching to tap six of these streams nearest to
Haiku. But further on in Koolau there are
many more, some of which are of much larger
size than any of the six alluded to, so that
there is no doubt iu the minds of those most
competent to judge, that by a ditch of about
forty miles in length sufficient water can be
obtained in the dryest seasons for irrigating
at least ten thousand acres of land. The
greater portion of this country belongs to the
Government, aud it is very sparsely settled.
There are, therefore, but very few waler
rights which might jsissibly bo interfered
with by a tli version of the water.
Let us acquaint ourselves with the capabili
ties of the whole country of its arable lands,
of the average capacities of its niimlierless
streams, of which of each can be utilized by
union. We want to marry tho waste waters
of tho couutry to its barren plains that there
may be increase that they may bring forth
wealth. Let us have investigation, and let us
have full, minute, and accurate reports of the
latent resources of every district in the King
dom. Jfot till this is done can we have the
face to ask immigrants to came here with a
view of making their homes among na.

Itr vrlopment of our Resource.
Wo have already spoken on the importance
of this subject, and the necessity for immedi
ate action in the matter. One of tho last
acts of tho late government was the appoint
ment of a Commission under the provisions of
the law of September 25th, consulting of three
gentlemen B-hose interests have for many
years leen identified with those of the country
and whose well-kown devotion to its advance
moot is a guarantee that the work they have
to do will be performed with thoroughness
and energy. We hope that tho new administra
tion will do all in its power to expedite and
further such action.
As a prominent illustration of tho 'ork
which this Commission has beforo it, we would
mention the case of tho lands on the western
slope of Haleakala, now arid and unproductive
while a few miles away in Koolau on the wind
ward side of the same mountain, Nature is
daily precipitating into the salt sea millions of
cubic feet of fresh water. Was there ever a more
striking exhibition of the waste which is con
stantly met with in the natural world ? of the
opportunities which arc constantly presented
to the intelligence of man to combine these
squandered forces, and thus to bring about
order and wealth where only chaos and pover
ty exist. A little display of enterprise, and
the employment of a trifling portion of that
capital which is every day wandering further
over the wide world in search of investment,
will readily bring this superabundance ol
water onto these waiting, 1 thirsty lands, and
thus cause them to bring forth bountiful harvests.
We are informed upon competent authority
that there are probably not less than forty
thousand acres of land on tho western skirts
of East Maui, and on the connecting isthmus
between the two divisions of the Island, which
with irrigation, are capable of producing seve
ral tons of sugar to the acre. The greater
part of it is now absolutely unproductive,
being too dry the most of the time to even
famish pasturage for live stock. Experience
in other similar dry regions of the country
has demonstrated that soils which have for
long periods not been subject to the influences
of rain, are more fertile than those which are
constantly exposed to its washing and seep-
Tlie ProHpect 9t War Iu Kuropc.
Thk probability that a peaceful solution of
the Eastern question will lie reached dimin
ishes rapidly, and it becomes more apparent
that despite all declarations to the contrary
Russia is scckiug a pretext for commencing
j hostilities, rather than a means of avoiding
thein. The attitude of England is not more
conducive to the preservation of peace, for in
refusing longer to maintain tho indctieiidence
as well as tho integrity of the Ottoman Em
pire, Lord Derby hag virtually admitted that
the Turk is doomed, and that his subjugation
has bexxnte merely a question of time. The
prospect thus held out to the Porte is not of a
nature to render the propositions of the furth
coming Conference acceptable. If the Loudon
7m truly forecasts England's policy, she
docs not propose to resist tho Russian move
ments unless they are practically aimed
againBt Constantinople. Should the Czar con
tent himself with the occupation of Bosnia
and Bnlgaria, and rest satisfied with securing
the autonomy of those provinces. England
would probably refrain from interference. In
that case the power of the Ottoman Empire
would be so curtailed that the traditional
balance of power would be practically des
troyed, and though Russia might profess a
temporary willingness to hold her hand, the
solution would not admit of any permanent
cessation of the Muscovite advances. It
might be a question of years, but sooner or
later the two great powers, Russia and Eng
land, would come to blows over the possession
of Constantinople. It would therefore be
better for all concerned that the struggle
should be begun and ended now. There never
can lie any assurance of permanent peace in
Europe until it is decided, and there nGver
will be any guarantee for permanent progress
until Rnssian pretensions are held in check
by St. George's cross waving over tho castles
of Sestos and Abydos.
Should a war occur England will tako pos
session of Constantinople and make another
Gibraltar of it, and England is the only power
that can be trusted with that formidable posi
tion by the rest of Europe. Under the cir
cumstances we do not look with any hopeful
expectations to the results of the Conference,
believing that whatever it may do, war would
be a better solvent of the problem. Europe
recoils in natural reluctance from the trial
before her, and would avoid it: but the indi
cations are such as to convince disinterested
observers thst a period has been reached when
Peace cannot be purchased, and when there
remains but the one method of settliug the
Eastern question. Any war likely to happen
now is tolerably sore to end in driving the
Turks out of Europe, and that again is a con
summation devoutly to be wished, and worth
a war of itself. If England fights this time,
however, we do not think she will fight to
maintain the independence or the integrity of
the Ottoman Empire. Neither the one nor
the other is any longer necessary to Europe,
and the world is rapidly coining round to the
conclusion that the utter extinction of that
Ottoman Empire would be a very good substi
tute for the too long cherished balance of
If England fights, therefore, she must fight
plainly and simply to prevent Russia from se
curing possession of Constantinople. Pnt the
war upon such grounds and it would lie a
popular one. But the English stomach rises
at the idea of taking up arms against a
Christian power to prop up a heathen empire
which is falling to pieces by its own weight.
As for the report that Disraeli contemplates
the transfer of Sikhs from India to fight the
Russians, we regard it as a not very ingenious
canard. Disraeli entertains a good many pe
culiar ideas, but he has never yet given any
indications of insanity, and we never heard
that, with all his latitudinarianism, he prefer
red the Cresent to the Cross. England will
not make the mistake of fighting to maintain
the Ottoman Empire. Only on the supposi
tion that she should have the protectorate of
Turkey and the possession of Constantinople
would such an alliance be possible, and even
then it would be better for her to take advan
tage of Russia's advances to secure the van
tage ground she wants, without committing
herself to the support of Mahommedaii insti
tutions aud dynasties. On the whole, a better
time for war could not have been chosen, and
since the Eastern question can only be settled
the better. War is an evil, but aome war is
preferable to some peace, and Europe has
reached that peculiar condition now. Sacra-

where I was waiting for a friead who was belated by
some of those omnibus regulations, I was describing.
Well, I became so tired of waiting there that I con
cluded to take a little leap orer into Scotland, having
borrowed a pair of seven-leagued boots for the par
pole. Tbey took me to tbe Huston Railway Station
where I decided it would bo mure staid to return to
the ordinary method of travel, and so took train fur
Edinburgh. I may yet go back to London, perhaps
to Paris. 1 flu J the boots very convenient ; and can
now amuse myself with a " hop, skip and jump''
at pleasure, rather than to follow the beaten truck.
It makes me lazy, too, this easy-going kind of life ;
and so you will please pardon me if I send you a
very formal letter this time, a c-jpy, in fact, of one
written to a private friend who is more or less inter
ested in tbe people and scenes 1 visited :
y 1 Atkol C'resctnt, Edinburgh :
Is it not a pretty name tbe " Crescent ?" Kdin
burgb is full of such pretty names, wbicb mean
pretty spots, too. Terraces, squares, rings, etc.,
little green parks, shaded by trees and surrounded
by pleasant bouses, instead of long, dry, dusty
streets. Our friend's house faces the' Crescent. I
arrired here a fortnight ago, coming the long ride
from London alone. It seemed a formidable thing
to do at first ; but tbe guard was attentive, and tbe
company in my section not unpleasant. The latter
were females tho guard looked to that a little, per
haps. A couple of us were commended particularly
to his care. We had our chats together, warming
our feet, two or three cf us at once, on tbe queer tin
boxes of hot wattr that tbe porters put into the eoui
partujent, for the day was cold. My companions
took warmer oomfort, now and then, out of tbe flasks
of the real " Old Scotch," and offered it to me witb
polite urgency. These were women uf independent
means, of rank superior to the laboring classes, who
were met on arriving at their destinations by orderly
looking servants witb carriage and wraps. Teeto-
alism is not common in a country where good whis
key is so plentiful. The Scotch idea of women's
rights gives thorn freedom to use the men's beverages,
hough it restricts them about fitting tbemseivet for
the higher pursuits, such as the medical profession
for jnetance.
I found our friend, Mils , sick and confined
to her bed, but was met by cordial welcome by her
sister. Tbey meant it should seem like an " Island"
welcome; and they have provided for me amusement
and engagement every moment till I have bad t
cry " Hold, enough I" to get time to write to you.
must tell you about it as well as can white it if
fresh in my memory, for you know so many of these
charming people, by fame at least, thai I want to
write you about every on.
I am struck with the many instances of active be
nevolecce 1 set. It is like what we read of in Kng
lish books, tbe actual interest of the superior ranks
towards the inferior, and tbe gracious ways of help
ing them. Here is our sick friend busy on her bed
with her benevolent scheme!. The plan that inter
ests her just now is to provide a shelter where cab
men may tako a comfortable meal within sight of
their cabs, under a roof, and, in winter, by a fire.
Tbey are prohibited by authority from leaving their
cabs more than five minutes at a time : and they are
not allowed to sit in thorn, do matter how severe
the weather is. Miss provides means for build
ing sheds, near some one or more of tbe cab-stands,
but there is considerable "red tape," an J coosider-
ble conservative hesitation, I fancy, about intro-
ucing a new motion. Tbe thing has been now " on
ie carpet" many months.
(Later. I am glad to say that tbe thing is now on
the pavements, on rollers. If the city authorities
object to it as an obstruction, or that they have not
legal power to grant street room, it is only to roll
tbe building away to some other place. I believe,
owever, there is no fear of any such objections now
the matter is really tried.)
I find all tbe ladies I meet in Edinburgh engaged
some good work or other. Tbe duty of one was
to vis. t tbe dispensary at the medical mission, at a
certain hour and read and talk to the poor women
gathered there for froe medical assistance. In tbis
way Catholics are reached who are otherwise un
reachable. Many oases of distress are made known.
and worthy families receive substantial help. It is
by no means all " too much talkee," as some might
imagine. When I lunched with this lady she and
her sister were sewing on bright bits of fancy work.
Bnt when I was ihown to a side room' I saw the
tables covered with stout new clothing for poor chil
dren that those same busy lingers had made, while
the " pick-up work" lay quietly aside awaiting its
chance moments. It was a tewing society all to it
self in that honse.
At tbe Modioal Mission School there is a yonng
woman preparing herself for a nurse. I think she
intends to go to India.
Dr. Lowe, a former missionary in India, is con
nected with the rchool. I met him at lunch, and
fonnd him very entertaining, and still full of love for
mission work. It is the Dr. Lowe whose name yon
see in tbe Gaxsttb, advertising Cblorodyne. He
told me that Dr. J.CoIIU Browne had been very kind
to him and to the mission, before he returned from
India, in giving them Cblorodyne. Dr. Lowe con
siders it an infallible remedy for cholera if given in
the very earliest stages. Dr. Browne finally gave
tbe recipe to Dr. L. There was aome pleasantry be
tween tbetn about the " Caution 1 None genuine
without the words, etc," bat tbe proprietor assured
the recipient that tbe medicine be would make would
be tbe real thing, whether it was " genuine " ColUs
Browne's or not.
Mrs. Bonar, the wife of Horatins Bonar, was pre
sent at that same lunch. She and the Doctor told
some interesting anecdotes about young Hindoos who
have come at different times at attend tbe Edinburgh
University. There is one here now who is tbe ion
of a wealthy tnsn of high caste. He baa forsaken
bis father's religion ; but he bas not yet made up his
mind to write and say so, for that means disinherit
ance and degradation, and an immediate end to bis
educational pursuits for want of means tn follow
One lady I met had a fancy for employing ber
little fund in befriending homeless young men, stu
dents, artists, and tbe like, getting them free dinner
tickets, helping them to advantageous introductions,
begging a little here and there for " my yonng
men" whan their wants are beyond her pane ; and.
sand) may be raised immediately, let this consti
tute a " library fund " and be properly invested.
From time to time let some of tbe Ladies Benevolent
Societies aod kindred associations give a fair or
other entertainment in aid of the fund. Let some of
those who have sought and found wealth in these is
lands and now dwe!l in other lands be applied to,
and surely tbey will contribute something to so
worthy a cause. Let it once be known that there is
such a fund and testamentary bequest may be hoped
for, and all the while interests will be added from the
original suboriptions. Suppose tbe fund to amount
n five years to thirty thousand dollars. For one
third of this sum a convenient building could be
so arranged as to be made the wing of a larger build
ing as tbe library should increase. Another third
judiciously expended, would furnish a very tolerable
equipment ot standard books. The interest of the
other third would supply the best new works year by
year, and pay current expenses. Only get the seed
planted and time will surety bring it to the fruit.
Will some one else say somethingon this subject? I.
