LITTLE SPECKS ON THE OCEAN Life and Labor in a Brand New Republic. What the Dole Government Has Done for Hawaii. Society mt It Is Now. as It Wm and as It Will Be, Br on* Wbo I* tn a foslriaa to .lodge and Know. Arthur E. Walker, an I nglishman, who for many years bas lived in Hon olulu and ia thoroughly familiar with life on the islands of the south seas, bas been visiting friends in tbis city for a few weeks east and yesterday gave an interview to a representative of tbe Herald. He talked of all those myriad islands which rise up out of tbe bosom of the soft south seas to form a little world of themselves midway between the old world and tha new, but the chief interest in hia talk, to readers of the Herald, will be in the part describ ing the Island of Hawaii, upon which tha capital, Honolulu, is situated. From Mr. Walker's description of the dreamy life of the natives of tbis fair isle the ever-busy American, pausing for just a.little while in tbe mad whirl of his rapid existence to ponder it, might easily believe that the dwellers on this fruitful epeck in the sea are people of another world wbo are actually running tbe dolce far nlente business into the ground. They live and thrive in an at mosphere of mental and physical calm that wonld stifle the average American. Not one single breath of ambition, or hope, even, stirs the languid air they lie in, and even tbeir day dreams, when tbey bask in the shadow of the spread ing banana trees, if their sluggish minds permit oi such things as dreams, must be colorless and flat, for their narrowed intellects cannot conceive of any exist ence more charming than their own. "It is not possible," says Mr. Walker, "for the American, who has never trav eled, to appreciate the capacity of these brown islanders for idleness. ' The live American cannot conceive of such an existence as tbey lead, doing nothing that could, by any stretch of tbe imagi nation, be construed as an attempt at work, from dewey morn till shadowy eve, and this from one year's cud to the other. "When one day ends any thought of what the next may have in store for him never enters tbe bead of a true Hawaiian. What little concern he has, if be by chance has any at all, is lor the immediate present; and tben it is all a question of poi, dictated by bis stomach. This question satisfactorily settled by bis having eacnred a full atomach, his mind ia once more at rest. "But I mistrust that it is not of the natives your readers will care so much to know. What interest in Hawaii they have will be in tbe American colony and tbe prospects and inducements Hawaii holds out to Americans. "I am, and always have been, a liny elint,believing that Lilliuokalani should still be ruler of tbe islands and all good and true Hawaiians her subjects. lam actuated In tbis belie!, however, merely by my eenae ol justice and right, and not because 1 believe that under the old regime Hawaii would be a better place ttan it will under American rule. "Not nnder American rule? Ah, there's a point. Annexation to the United States I believe to be aa inevit able for Hawaii as eunshiue. Hut even without tbe formula ot annexation, what have we? A rupub.'io controlled by Americans and modeled after that of tho country our people will over lovo and respect. Whoever has lived in Honolulu since the downfall of tbe old government and watched tbe progress of the new, cannot have failed to See whither things are drifting. "I aay, 'give tha devil his due.' Yon Americana have 'played tbe devil' in Hawaii. Men who formerly were prom inent in business and social life, wbo were man of means and influence, now have nothing to show for it all. On the other hand the now gov ernment ia creating new life, new indus tries, new ambitions for Ilswaiiana of tbe progressive kind. Tbe new men at the head of affairs in Hawaii are busi ness men; tbey reoognize the vast pos sibilities of the new republic, and are prolific of ideas for the advancement of the islands. "But tbeir schemes are all for the benefit of tbe foreigners on the islands. Those indolent, careless, happy-hearted natives are lo be crowded out and in Tbeir places will come your pushing Americans, and tbe story of the wrest ing of a country from its original owners iby invaders from another land will be once again written on tbe pages of the world's history, "There will be no resistance. Every day tbe Royalists are losing ground. The ez-qieen's followers now are men never intended for leaders. Since Paul Nenman took the oath of allegiance to tbe new government the last prop of tbe Royaliats has fallen from under tbem aud though in numbera tbey are great, their atrength is like that o! an army of pygmies—only in tbair num bers. Tbe Royalists ara without lead era, without organization, without money, and without arms. This talk of smuggled arms, recent drilling and a final outbreak is idle rumor without shadow of foundation. I left Honolulu on October 19tb last, and then there was not tbe remotest sign of any such things. Tioyal I'nlni Arrvve, Honolulu,, "The new government bas a standing army of 600 men and a volunteer army 1000 strong. The soldiers are re markably well drilled and a notable thing is that the soldiers of Hawaii un der the new government are better paid than any other soldiers in the world. The privates receive $35 per month. "Perhaps it would be well for the Hick a: i) to state, in this particular, that the army is not in need ol recruits, and ii it were there are hundreds of men on the islands ready to enter the service. "Tbe famous Hawaiian band, which j was a part of Queen Liltuokalai's army j in constant service and paid by the government, is no more. The republic j haß not seen fit to enlist its services, and though the members still keep some sort of organisation tbe band is rarely seen on the streets oi Honolulu and one of the features of the island, the nightly eoncerte of tbis famous band of native musicians in the park in front of the ex-queen's palace, is gone forever. "The new army is drilled on the open square before the palace, now used aa a government building, once a month when tbe moon is lull. Tbe men are well equipped and quartered and have in a short time attained a remarkable proficiency in the drill and military tactics. "Tbe industries of tbe islands are all in a prosperous condition, except, possi bly, sugar raising. The removal of tbe fjronp of lla a <iilan belle* 1 bounty on sugar by tbe new govern ment haß caused this industry to slack en. The banana industry is in a pros perous way. Shipments of the fruit from the islands are constantly growing larger and the prices are getting better. "CofTee raising is going to become tha chief industry of the islands. This ia the one great inducement which tbe new republic holds out to Americans of moderate means. "No uae to come to Hawaii without ■ome means, for there is nothing open to newcomerg except coffee planting, and it takes nt least three years of work before the coli'ee plantation yields a re turn. Therefore the man who would go into tiiet business must have the means to live out the three years, and to get his plantation into beariug. "There is littlo outlay require, 1 for tiie land. The new government baa p>e pared a plan of leasing the laud, which has been idle before, on the easiest of terms, to men who come with means to LOS ANGELES HERALD SUNDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 9, 1894. plant it out. The growing oi rice on certain of the islands ia a profitable in dustry, but requlrea a considerable out lay oi money and the returns are not always to be relied on. "Tbe white, or loreign elements on the islands are taking to all their industries since the new government bas been es tablished and tha tendency ia to keep tbe Japanese and natives in check; in fact, to crowd them out of the best por tions of the islands aud build up the American colonies. "One good law the new government baa made is that which requires every man landing on the islands to have at least $60 in cash. Lacking this they are returned to the port from whence they came, if possible, on the very same ship which brought them. This law bas already bad the efTeot of lessening Arthur 11. Walker, of Honolulu the number of idle, dissolute persons wbo work their paisage to the islands expecting on their arrival to enter upon a life of ease and pleasure. "Society in Honolulu is mixed. The better class oi natives are admitted to social relations with tbe middle and sometimes npper classes of whites. But there is no real exelnsive snoiety on the islands as yet, and the lines are not closely drawn. Tha churches of Hon olulu are very fine. The Catholics nnd the Oongregationalists both have beauti ful and costly church edifices, and then there is a large Central union church, embracing savers! denominations and which is well attended at all its services. "The education*! advantage* are ex cellent, There are several fine schools in the city of Honolala, both public and private. I believe it is tbe intention of tbe new government to encoarage the eatabliahment of a free school ayatem as broad in its scops and as perfect as that of the cities of the I'oited States. The Kawarhon school is a fine educa tional institution for native:, and the Kauma-Kapipi church, where the na tives worship, would be a revelation to many people oi the United Stotes. 'On the whole I see a bright future for fair Hawaii. I see the islands thickly populated in years to come, with an enlightened people, prosperous and happy in tha enjoyment oi tbe blessings of the most favored spot be neath the glowing sun." WOMAN'S PRESS ASSOCIATION. Tha Proceedingd at the He*t.liiß of Laat Monday. The Woman's Press association held its regular meeting on Monday after noon in the parlor of the Nadeau, which the proprietor, Mr. Chase, courteously continues to place at the service of the association, this year, as in tbe paat. Letters were read from Mrs. Florence Percy Matbeson of tbe San Francisco association, and Mrs. Ross Hartwicke Thorpe in acknowledgement of their election to honorary membership. The president, Mrs. Marshall, report ed the resignation of the recording sec retary, Mrs. Carl Kchut?o, which was accepted with reluctance by tbe society and tbe corresponding secretary, Mrs. Clara 8. Brown, elected to Gil the unex pired term. The eeorelary was instructed to con vey tbe sympathy of tbe members, by letter oi condolence, to Mts. Jeanne C. Carr of Pasadena, for her recent be* reavement in the death of her husband, Dr. Carr, and to Mrs. Alice M. McComas in tbe case of her mother, Mrs. Moore, inDscatur, 111. It was with mpat sin cere regret the society receive.i tbe un welcome information from the president that her removal to San Francisco in the near future would oblige her to re linquish her office and sever her con neotion with the association, for the time being. Mrs. Marshall has been in defatigable in her efforts to promote the interests of the association. The next meeting will be held at the residence of Mrs. Mary E, Hart. 552 San Pedro street, Monday evening, Ds* comber 17th. Mr. Gibson, Mrs. Hart's brother, who has epent two years in the South Sea islands, will be present and give an in formal talk on native life there, aud has consented also to sing a Kanaka song. AN ILLEGAL VOTER. Arm) or a Massachusetts Man Who Uau't Kaad or Write. Arthur !.Jward Adams, wbo gars he Ives at Gardens, is nnder arrest on a charge oi illegal voting at tbe recent city election. Adams was born in Holyoke, Mags., yet be does not know his name when he sees it, not being able to read or write. He is -4 years oi age. Adams says he registered in the Eighth ward and voted there twice, but did not reside there long enough to enable him to ezerciße hie franchise right. He said he did not intend to vote at tbe recent election until c Frenchman whom he designated as Jim and another vote-hunter called George somebody gave him a baer and persuaded him to vote. Although lis came all the way from Massachusetts, be did not know enough to vole, and allowed some scoun drel to make n sample ballot which he compared with the regular ballot end voted accordingly. The fellows who thus influenced Adams to vote are tbe ones who should be punished, and tbe officers are look ing ior them.

H.ra Is a Mattsr In Whloh All Men and Many Women Will Have a Direct and Important Inter est. |A paper read before the Single Tax Club De cembers by W. S. Crelghlon.l Mr. President:—Heretofore, by pre cept and example, I have endeavored, so far as mr personal influence mignt ob tain with this club, to have single taxers pursue a "middle of the road" policy, turning neither to tbe right hand nor tbe lift after false lights or wandering isms. But tonight I have come here fired with a conception tbat it ts the im perative duty of members of this club to identify themselves with a new secret political , society which is deatined to spread over tbe entire oivilized world under the cabalistic letters M. P. A. That citizen and voter must be a eu perficial observer ol the trend ol the timeß who haa not been brought a vivid realization that the entire aocial and po litical fabric of tbia Union ia being un dermined by the aggression! of women kind upon the ancient rigbta and pre scriptive privilegea of tbe masculine portion of the population. After much inward communing and justifiable hesitation, tbe time haa now arrived, I think, when I may venture to tbrow off mystery and proclaim myself a member and officer of the Masculine Protective association of tbe diviaion of California. I realize bow potent a fac tor is tbe occult and mysterious in en listing publio interest and inviting pos tulants for initiation to our order, and I do not forget that there sre prudential considerations, of which every married man will recognize the weight, moving Benedicts to evade open acknowledge ment of affiliation with us. Bnt, con scious ef the rectitude of our purposes, the numerical strength ol our league and ita deatinad popularity, I make bold to announce that it is tbe intention ol tbe M. P. A. to rally round the flag, guard masculine rights against tbe insidious encroachments ol women and, il necessary, to Strike till the fair armed foe expires! Strike for our pities by our hearth tl res! strike till the platform girl retires From oar Dative laud. I desire to submit some cogent re flections and suggestions to a negligent and supine sex which should open its eyes to the necessity for defensive or ganization. It is perfectly obvious that woman, not content with rnnning the man wbo rnns tbe government, has de termined to run the government diraot ly. She begins at the beginning. Be think you at what tender age the youth of this country is entrusted to tbe care of women, wbo are thus enabled to instill into tbeir opening mipds not only heterodox views regarding man's supremacy,but, by tbe application of ihe slipper, to impress juvenilee with the overweening authority and awesome ness ol womankind. Not content with the nursery, they have insinuated them selves into the public schools and into the hearts of their pupile. Men have been supplanted by them until the whole school system bas all but fallen into their bands. Grown bolder by what tbey have fed on, they have even had the audacity to put forward candidates for tbe snperintendenoy of publio ia- etruction. Tbe sex may be said to be practically the beneficiary of tbe school fund and to nse tbe same for tbe propogation of their monstrous doc trines. Tbey have monnted the ros trum and tbe pulpit and are eonspiouona in the public press. Ia it not time to call a halt? lam aware that there are those who will tpke exceptions to onr noble order upon the grouud that sex discrimina tion tending to a repression of woman kind will surely bring about strained re lations in families aud depress the mar i:age market. But, gentlemen, yon will take note that another far-reaching and patriotio organization has not hesitated to enter upon a restrictive and repres sive crusade against Roman Catholicism, regardless of business, social and do mestic consequences, and why, pray, should not the M. P. A. move forward to the consummation of its beneficent designs along similar lines with tena cious fidelity to the Jesuitical maxim: "The end justifies the means." How much more defensible such action npon the part oi the M. P. A, than upon that of the A. P. A. ? It is conoeivable tbat all religious sects might become merged into one—in time. Hut look you at the insuperable barriers that nature bus set up against tbe perfect mergement of the sexes. When a woman dons a cap, puts on Turkish trousers and mounts a bi cycle she does nut thereby become a man. Far from it. Let those who think well ol it organize Beet against sect. I would array sex against sex. Catholics may become Protejlante and vice verea, but a man can not be come- a woman, nor a woman a man — though, oi course, women will always ba more becoming Mian men. And therein lies one great danger. Women are so becoming. They are becoming edu cated, and therefore dangerous. We must put none but men on guard—mem bers of the M. P. A. preferred. We must boycott the women not alone in politics, but in busi ness. A man caught patronizing a milliner's store, or even looking in at the windows thereof at the vain, Haunt ing and pretentious headgear of females must be stricken from the list of eligi bles to membership in the M. P. A. Those men who are trammelled with too clooe affinities with these aliens—tbey are nothing olse —poor, deluded creat ines who bow down with heathen idola try before the impious creations of a Worth or a Uedfern— should be exclud ed from our ranks. We all know, gen tlemen, each for himself, to whom adora tion from females aioue is due. Fur' thermore, every member of the M. P. A. must take a solemn oath to employ no woman as a domestic, where a man oan be obtained. He matt obligate himself to render aid and comfort to no Friday morning club, Kings' daughters, W, 0. T. U„ or aid society—in fact, any femin ine aggregation. In these societies wo men learn to assert themselves aud batch plots for the ovorthrow of mascu line dominion. It is needless to say tbat the M. P. A. will make its ioflaenoe felt at tbe polls. Without violating the rales of our order I may be permitted to say that at tbe recent county election we demonstrated our ability to taae the acalpof one aspir ing woman, Hut I dare g« no further. Who that woman was the rack would not draw from me. Suffice it to say that she did not belong to the M. P. A. She was a woman. Without boasting I may aay tbat the M. P. A. is on deck. Let women beware 1 Any single-tax er who daeirea to become a member of tha Alpha chapter of the M. P. A. may con sult ma inprivaey al my law office. COL. IRISH IN TOWN. His Brief Dlaaasslow of Poltlleel ■altera. Col. John P. Iriab, for many years managing editor of tbe San Franoioao Alta, and now naval offioar ot Ban Francisco, waa ia tbe city yesterday and left for tbe north on laat night's train. He waa seen al tha Hollanbaok yester day by a Hsrald reporter and he talked freely upon tbe political situs tion. "Yon may say," said be, "that It tha Democratic party hopea to redeem itaell it has to get in sympathy with the national administration, and not follow tbe fads and fancies which have been aprnng during the laat year. It must atand in lavor ol sound money, ior if it doss not, and gives to tha Republican party tbe benefit ot Ita position the same aa it did tbia campaign, it wi l etand no ehanee of winning in 1896. Tbia year there were 5.000,000 of voters wbo did not east a ballot. "They ware not in favor ot protection or they wonld have voted the Republi can ticket, nor in favor of free ailver or they wonld have cast their lot with the Popnliata. If the Demoerate hope to gain a necessary peteentage ot the vote tbey must get in line with tha national administration and favor sound money or tbeir eanae ia lost." Regarding the senatorial figbt Colonel Irish said tnat Senator Perkins will un doubtedly be returned. The Republi cans in the legislature bays S3 votes, and of tbia number tbara are 66 votes pledged to Perkins, whioh is equivalent to an election. Colonel Irian said that in hia opinion Adolpb Sutro will make an excellent mayor for San Francisco. He owns nearly half of the peninsula, and hia in terests are so joined with the city that he cannot advance one without further ing the other.
