EST 1IOUUS IN EEBUS
TUESDAY AUGUST 30 1SS7
It is stated in Bradstruts that an
American syndicate in which a prom
inent Philadelphia banker is the
leading member has entered into ne
gotiations with the Chinese govern
ment to establish a complete system
of railroads telegraphs and tele
phones mines and iron niannfacto
ries throughout the country in con
junction with Chinese capital and
employing native assistance wherever
possible It is stated that a conces
sion ior tho establishment of a tele
phone system has already been grant
ed for a period of fifty Years and
those interested are confident that
their other plans will be equally well
received Representatives of the syn
dicate now in China are expected to
return soon in company with envoys
empowered to settle the remaining
steps in the negotiations A part of
the scheme embraces the establish
ment of a Chinese bank and branches
with a larfre capital which if indi
cionsiy manageu anti made tue me
dium of the extensive business of the
Chinese government and also of the
national improvements referred to
above would be an innovation- on the
present system as great as the new
schemes which are planned to accom
pany it
The following extract is from the
London letter of the Sydney Herald
under date of J niy 1st
The annual conversazione of the Royal
Colonial Institute was held on the same
night as the Queens garden party at the
South Kensington Museum The gathering
WH3 rather smaller than usual the attend
ance being about 3000 The only royalties
who put in an appearance were the Duke of
Cambridge and the Queen of Hawaii The
latter royal kdy seems very much to enjoy
uic aiiemiuu ui vtuicu tue is tue OOject in
this country When she left the Museum
the company formed in two lines to allow
her to pass between them and Her Majestys
olive countenance was radiant with pleasure
as she walked down the lines of bowing gen
tleraenand curtsying ladies
It is said that a good deal of iealonsv hus
been caused among the Indian princes by the
Queen of Hawaii being accorded greater hon
ors than those which are vouchsafed to them
selves For instance our own Qaeen kissed
her at the garden party and at the thanks
giving service at Westminster Abbey on Ju
bilee Day Qoeen Eapiolani and her sister
Princess LUinokalnni were given seats in
the sacrarium while the Indian princes re
mained in the choir At the Alexandra Ho
tel too where her Hawaiian Majesty is
a military guard is kept constantly on
duty but no such honor has been granted to
ne Indian princes in London although the
Jrench Government accorded it to some of
ihem while they were staying m Paris The
Chairman Nakipi WHRkkard J3larden j labarajah Holkar one of the most warlike
R Mills -princes of India is said to feel the absence of

this latter distinction verv fceenlv Of
course the reason for the greater honor
shown to the Queen of Hawaii is that she 13
an independent potentate while the Indian
princes are feudatories
L It may not be generally known that
-in England as well as in the United
States Europeans but more especially
Germans are sought for as clerks and
rrespondents in large commercial
looses to the exclusion of native born
Englishmen and Americans This ha3
ttracted so much attention that an
nquiry has lately been addressed by
he Chamber of Commerce to leading
usiness firms in London which has
eveloped tne fact that a large pro
1 3rtion of them 35 per cent of those
i nswering the inquiry employ for-
gn clerks and that others were
- JB 1
fooling tbo need of so doing Tho
reason is that foroignei s aro nioro
useful Couimorco is growing wider
and clerks wlio can conduct foreign
correspondence aro regarded as neces
sary to commercial houses of import
ance In this matter of tbo knowledge
of foreign languages as well as in tho
education for particular industries it
is found that foreigners outstrip tho
natives Tho range and qnaliiv of
commercial education must uo raised
if commercial houses would compote
with European firms Already it ap
pears that about one third of tho
commercial firms in London aro of
German origin This snbjeot is of
interest olsowhoro tbnn in England
and America Tho conditions roforred
to aro not confined to any particular
country but aro everywhere compell
ing tho furnishing of a bolter oquip
inent for carryinjr out tho widoninj
commorco of the future
Referring to au anticipation ven
tured by tho Now York Herald that
tho United States might somo day
havo in its Congress representatives
from tho Sandwich Islands Ocoanica
and Japan tho Atlanta Constitution
says This is tho old manifest des
tiny idea Onco it was very popular
Thirty years ago it was common
enough to find orators and journalists
advocating tho annexation of Canada
Cuba Mexico and Central America
Now very little is over said about it
Perhaps tho difficulties in tho way of
satisfactorily adjusting tho relations
of the different races now dwelling
under our flag has something te do
with tho growing disinclination to ac
quire additional torritory Our states
men are beginning to realizo that it is
a serious thing to suddenly bring into
our system strange races and people
differing in political social and do
mestic ideas The Constitution what
ever weight it may have in national
politics as tho leading paper of tho
South believes in tho Union being
conducted on strict business princi
ples It says in that regard At
present tho American idea has no
manifest destiny about it The
American idea is strictly business
It is to mako tho most of what we
have and never to mako an invest
ment unless there is a big profit in it
This commercial policy has us so se
curely in its grip that tho men who
talk about annexing other countries
are looked upon as visionary dream
ers Tho average business man sini
ply wants the trade of other lands
If ho can get it without tho trouble of
conquest or annexation is it not
enough Nobody cares whether our
flag floats over tho Sandwich Islands
or not Tho point is to get tho pro
ducts of tho natives at the lowest pos
sible price and sell them our goods at
a magnificent profit It is to compass
this object that tho statesmanship of
the ago is directed and tho signs of
tho times do not indicate a speedy
change
Unless a Legislature is obtained at
the ensuing elections in which tho
principal taxpayers and contributors
to the general prosperity may repose
confidence tho f uturo will again loom
up full of dark prospects There will
be a resumption of the heartburnings
and dissatisfaction and demoralizinff
strife of politics which made the dif
ferent periods of the- Gibson era in
tolerable apart from the ill effects of
niisrnlo so constantly endured This
therefore is the time to bring earn
estness into active play Now is the
occasion for applying tthe ounce of
prevention which has more virtne
than the pound of cure Every vote
neglected at this juncture which
might bo gained for tho principles of
reform and for the attainment of re
spectability and competence in the
Legislature mav involve so much
waiting for the final establishment of
good government or a certain amount
of discredit attaching to the Legisla
ture for the ensuing three years
Then let not a detail ofuseful work
in the campaign bo neglected or
anything that should be attended
to by any particular individual be re
legated to tho domain of everybodys
businesslt is in the actual struggle of
the campaign after the standard-bearers
of tho party have been selected
that activity and zeal for the cause of
reform are tne most urgently demand
ed The preliminaries were imnortnnt
and they received careful handling ac
cordingly with the result that a com
prehensive respectable and represent
ative ticket has been placed in the
field With the men agreed noon
under as broad and fair a method of
choosing them as could be readily de
vised the success of the moasuros for
which they stand must now be tho
paramount consideration of every
well wisher of the nation Nobody
who claims to be
a supporter of re
formed government can plead a valid
excuse for discharge in this stage of
the conflict It is the internet nt nil
to have the benefits of constitutional
and popular government assured for
all time and those who hold back their
hands from helping the common
cause much more who extend aid to
its opponents directly or indirectly
are faithless to their own generation
and false to posterity
A few years ago it wa3 stated that tha Ha
waiian sugar crop would never exceed CO 000
tons But it crept up to 80000 tons and then
lMtyeartollOOCO tons The crdp of MB
wdl it is confidently expected be even still
Larger as new lands have been brought under
cultivation and the growing cane presents
an excellent appearance Unlea a Terdrr
season intervenes at the cm of this yeaf
which is an unusual occurrence on th4 1
landsit will not be surprising if tbelH
sugar crop amounts to 120WXT tons This
would grve a surplus of 70000 Urns to com-

The above is from the San Francis
-4
co commercial correspondents letter
to firaihtrefts which ia generally re
liable A few corrections shonfd ba
stated in connection with it The
Hawaiian croft of 1SSG was 108000
short tons Tho crop of 1887 will bo
about 90000 tons which is a fair
avoragoof thoprosont sugar produc
ing capacity of thoso Islands with
tho aron of sugar land now cultivated
Tho crop of 1SSS is not likoly to be
larger than that of 1S87 if indeed it
bo at large Tho woathor so far has
not favored a largo yield Nor is
there much probability of a larger
crop than that of this your until tbfi
completion of the Hilo ami Huamko
Railroad shall open up new sugar
lands alone its route
Tho bulk of the Hawaiian sugar
crop having been sent to San Fran
cisco during the first seven month of
this year the shipments for the re-
luHiuui five mouths will not more
than suffice so keep the San Francisco
refineries running if they do that
Consequently the sugar that has al
ready gone forward to Eastern Amer
ican markets is all that will be sent
this year As to 1SSS it is doubtful
whether the crop of Hawaiian sugar
will nioro than suffice to meet the
rapidly increasing demands of the
Rocky Mountain and Pacific States
At least there can be no large surplus
unless considerable importations of
sugar are made at San Francisco
from Manila and Central America
during 1SSS These are the facts so
far as they can be ascertained at
present
The Board of Education show
thev intend to be up with the ti
They aro pushing forward tho build
ing of school houses where accommo
dation is needed and are repairing
others Tho fact is that since the
Board came under tho control of Mr
Gibson till his fall scarcely anything
had been dono and tho school accom
modation of tho country had fallen
wofully bohind Another step in this
right direction is the institution of
examinations for teachers Tho first
of these will be hold on Soptomber
13th and 14th whon primary certifi
cates will be awarded Wo under
stand that an examination for higher
grade certificates will be held in
January 1SSS Tho idoa of tho Board
is an oxcellont ono and will there is
very littlo doubt commend itself to
tho public A spirit of emulation
will be inspired in our teachers and
they will be urgod to keep up with
the times A series of lessons in the
methods of toachingi3 to bo given to
the junior teachers in Honolulu and
this will onablo Hawaii to supply her
own teachers instead of having to
seek for them abroad Below appears
the circular which has just been
issued
By a vote of the Board of Edaeation
passed August 17th it bits been deekted that
all teachers not possessinc certificates shall
be examined by a committee Appointed by
the Board and oonsfctmgof Proessor4 W
D Alexander M M Scott and the Inspector
uenerai oi cnoois
AU toachers will be required to take the
examination the only eientniioas bete
those who already hold certitfoata whim
shall be satisfactory to the Board of Exam
iners and those who have naM positions
under the Board for the space Jf ten vears
bat the rale does not debar theTUuerfrJin
taking the examination and obtaining a cer
tiflc tte and it is hoped thnt thev will pre
sent themselves
The examination i intended to net as a
stimulus to all teachers to equip theroseies
thoroughly for their profession and t j r use
the standard of it to the rink it hold is the
United States
The examination for the primrr eertin
cates will be confined to English Arith
aa far is decimal fractions and Geo
grnphy Special attention is called to the
necessity of teachers understanding how
to teach English to Hawaiians
During the ensuing term lesson will be
given by teachers appointed by tho Board
and the junior teachers will be required to
attend An examination for higher grade
certificates will be held before the apenmjc
of the term of 1365
The certificates will have endorsed on
them the percentage of marks obtained in
each subject I remain jours faithfully

Now that the lists of the persons in
the various wards of Honolulu who
have qualified as voters for Nobles
and Representatives have been made
up and posted it will be in order for
the friends of the reform movement
to scrutinize these lists with a view to
their being made complete and per
fect It should be made the duty of
the committees appointed by the ward
associations to see that every sup
porter of reform principles whose
name does not appear on these Ksta
is brought upto take the oath and be
registered also that those persons
if any who may have registered
wrongfully be reported to tho In
spectors of Election for the purplfe
of having their names removed T3te
timo allowed for adding to and per
fecting the registry will expire on
Thursday September 1st bnt this
work should not be lef t to the hnrry
of the last day or two Friday Sep
tember 2d is the day when the per
fected lists are required to be posted
uwi mat uaio no auoiuons or
alterations can be made The inter
ests involved in the coming election
are too momentous to have anything
left to chance Although we expect
to elect the whole ticket by a hand
some majority it is never safe to count
too much on the weakness of an eg
my and the choice of the four Repre
sentatives may possibly turn on a few
votes Let the Reform party make
the result certain by bringing out their
fall vote
Jtot two weeks remain till the de
cisive hour It will be well worth
the while of every man who wishes
to see good government estabJianed
to devote the bulk of that brief snace
to making assurance of tho Keform
tickets success doubly sure
The EUU is keeping up a cry for
the election of public official- Such
a thing would only add a fresh
burden to trcj5ical life With a popa
lar Legislature there will be an avail
ing check on tho Government against
improper appointments as juSicst
other mistakes of admin btratitBt
