THE DAILY" Pacific Commercial Advertiser. B Jut and fear not: Lt all th end thon alm'at at b Thy Country', thj God'i, and Truth's. FRIDAY, : : DECEMBER 14, 1888. Ir ;A: recently . published letter from Hon. W. A. Kinney, the expression oc curs, "The revolution last year turned en a Bingle idea, riz. : to make the rhito man'i civilization dominant at tho Is lands." " What breught the men out was the purpose to make the lalands a white man's country." He qnaliflea this by adding, "That did not mean the drawing of any race linea, but it did mean drawing a line between those whaara o! our civilization, and those vrho are not and who will not adapt themielves to it." By the first named class are undoubtedly meant the Ha- waiians . and white foreigners, by the latter the Chinese. We do not refer to this language to contest the correctness of the statement as it is evidently meant to be understood, although the terns " white man's civilization," and " white man's country" are very liable to thoughtless misconstruction on the one hand, and intentional misrepresentation on the other. We ara inclined to think, however, .that the. Writer overestimates the weight of the anti-Chinese feeling among the motives which gave energy to last year's, movement. That fueling undoubtedly existed at the time, but not to the aame.?Qxtent, or in anything like the same intensity as at present. Events which have happened since the revolu tion have . widened and deepened the anti-Chinese sentiment immensely. What, we wish to especially emphasize is his deprecation of the "drawing of any race , lines", between HHwaiians and kaoles, and to insist on using the terms 4 white raan'g country," and "the white man's civilization," in no sense Inconsistent with -the meat ferupuloaa regard for the rights and interests of the aboriginal inhabitants o! these Islands. The relations of the natives and whites have habitually been most kindly and mutually serviceable. We trust they are to continue bo. The Hawaiian has been very hospitable to foreign ideas and practices, both to beneficent and to per nieioad ones. He has been, absorbing the white man's civilization and ideas about 'as fast as the disadvantages of hereditary sentiment and . habit could be expected to let him. All -hia ideas of what is superior and worthiest of attainment point in the direction of the white man's religious and social practices and his fiscal eco nomics. There are, of course, frequent partial reversions to old and nominally discarded- ways. The Hawaiian some times, and of necessity, wearies of the strain and effort of moving in civilized lines, o! conduct. Still he recognizes their necessity, and cordially makes and renews his efforts to follow them. So long as he does this, and does not set himself in wilful opposition thereto, we think he adequately makes good his con tinued right to exercise a full share of political power, and to a part in the ad ministration of affairs, according to his ability. The Government was once exclusively the Hawaiian's. In compliance with thfr imperative necessities of the incom ing tide of commerce and white civiliza tion, the Hawaiian cordially accepted the white man's partnership in the Govern ment, and the guidance of his wider ex perience and training. This arrange ment still exists. The Hawaiian is a full partner by right in the government of the country. At the same time, the logic of events, and tho inevitable necessities of the case would imperil that right, should he insist on such arbitrary and otherwise obsolete and barbarous ideas and methods as the late .regime was un questionably tending towards. To this extent we recognize the truth that the white man's civilization must be domi nant. Located where these islands are, with their existing productions and com merce, there is no choice in the matter. The situation forbids the supremacy of any social or administrative systems an tagonistic to those of the white man. The Hawaiian has heretofore conformed thereto. We have no doubt he will con tinue to do so. In this limited sense, this is a "white man's country." But it is net bo in any sense that would relegate . the Hawaiian to an inferior position, nor do we think that any one of recognized influence or representative position de sires anything of the kind. Any move ment in that direction may count upon the Advertises' most determined opposition. Beml-Annual Meeting of Board of Trui teg Kport of Treasurer and Phy sician. The semi-annual meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Queen's Hospital was held in-the room ef the Chamber of Com merce at 10 o'clock on Tuesday morning. Hon. O. R.

Core for Bad Temper. - A merchant in London had a dispute with a Quaker respecting the settlement of an account. The merchant was de termined to 'bring the question into Court, a proceeding to which the Quaker objected. Desiring te make a last effort, the Quaker called e.t his office one morn ing and inquired of the servant if his master was at home. The merchant hearing the inquiry and knowing the voice called aloud from the top of the stairs, '! Tell that rascal that I am not at home." The Quaker looking up toward him calmly said, " Well, friend, God put thee in a better mind." The merchant was struck with the meekness of this reply and having more deliberately in vestigated the matter became convinced that the Quaker was right, and he in the wrong, lie requested to see him and after acknowledging his error he said : " I have one question to ask you. Hew are you able with such patience on var ious occasions to bear my abuse?" "Friend," replied the Quaker, "I will tell thee. I was naturally as hot and violent as thou art. I knew that to in dulge this temper was sinful and I found that it was imprudent. I observed that men in a passion always epoko loud and I thought that if I could control my voice I should repress my passion. I have therefore made it a rule never to suffer my voico to rise above a certain key and by a careful observation of this rule I have entirely mastered my natural temper, " . Notes by a Lady Artist and Connoisseur. The pictures on exhibition and for sale at the store of the Pacific Hardware Company on Fort street are so remark ably good and so reasonable in price, that some explanation is owing the pub lic on their account. In London Mr. Dillingham quite by accident happened in at an auction ; it was that of a family of wealth and taste brought suddenly to poverty and all their effects put under the hammer. It being a dull day but few people were present at the auction, thus enabling Mr. Dillingham to stlect a number of the best pictures at pitifully small prices ; he offers them to the pub lic here for but a reasonable advance on the original purchase, but far beneath their artistic value. To enumerate them all would occupy too much space but the most notable are : No. 8, " Forgotten Errand," by T. Long. The painting of still-life in this picture is very fine. A mother chides a curly-haired urchin who with hanging head and downcast eyes confesses forget fulness. The scheme of color is low in tone and very harmonious. " Sword Dance," by H. Richter, shows a beautiful palace sceno where a young Emperor leans upon bis hand, and sur rounded by friends and courtiers watches the graceful movements of a young wo man who airily glides through the fanciful figures of the sword dance. A haze of Italian warmth and color per vades this picture, while in the distance the pale blue bay ot Naples lies shim mering under a southern sun. A bold "original picture is " The Chase" by a Russian artist, B. Marco vitzski. who evidently knows and loves what he paints. A party of cossacka riding through the prairie are attacked by wolves, and in the foreground a rougn fellow en a white horse throws a lasso at a wolf, while a crowd of riders come galloping aiter. It is painted in the free dashing manner of one familiar with such scenes and life. The cold grey sky, the far-reachiner drearv prairie, the hungry wolves, and the half civilized cossacks form the subjects of several pictures by the same artist. No. 15, by another Russian painter, L: Pernett, is of a crowd of fur-clad travelers dashing over the snow and ice in writzkas drawn, Russian fashion, by three horses abreast. "Spring," by H. Richter, is an idea picture, showing a lovely maiden handl ing a goblet of water to a knight in armor, as he alights by a wayside brook. The cool shadowy water is beautifully painted, so also the cupids at play among tne flowers. 76, "A Close Call," is a little gem. Two dogs with sparkling eyes and loll ing tongues watch the departura of a rat from a trap. It is a charming little pic ture of dog life. A large painting of "Flora," by Hoff man, is very gorgeous in color and rich in design. A plump and pleasing maiden reclines on a couch clad in scar let drapery,while countless rosy-cheeked cupids bring her flowers, and all about her pile up the fragrant roses. . There are several small hunting scenes very clever and chic, and some pheep by A. Nowly very realistically painted. . "The Cossacks," by Perrett, is a stir ring Russian scene. Two dashing fig ures charge at full gallop out of the pic ture, habiliments flying in tho air and spears aloft. It is fine in tone rich in color, and the distances ' particularly good. In all it is a remarkable collec tion and needs only to be seen to be ap preciated. Isabel Strong. NOTICE.
