WISE AND OTHERWISE. Herbert II. Gowen ha3 written a fourteen-page article on the rise and decline of the Hawaiian mon archy, which has been published in the Cosmopolitan magazine for June. The article itself has not yet reached here, but notices of it state that Mr. Gowen makes Kala kaua responsible for the overthrow of the late monarchy because he lacked the resource, self-dependence and vigor of the former rulers of Hawaii. Kalakaua may have been more or less to blame in ar ranging conditions which have has tened the event, but the late king can hardly be held responsible fur ther than .this. The hand which gave the fatal push that toppled the unstable monarchy was that of Liliuokalani. Had the policy of Kalakaua, of going so far and no further, been followed by his sister the monarchy might have stood unmolested for years, instead of a few brief months. However, it is better so. The steamer Warrimoo which arrived in port last Saturday after noon, wa3 the second of the new line to reach this port. She made good time and carried a general cargo composed principally of samples of Colonial products, such as wines, fruit, horses, meats, shale, etc. Mr. James Huddart,' manag ing owner of the new line, states that the cargo is composed chiefly of experimental shipments with a view to feeling the market and opening up . new trade relations. The Warrimoo is a handsome steamer, and her short stay here is due to a desire on Mr. Huddartk part to lower the ma:' record, if possible, Sh j carried some three lousand six hundred bunches of bananas, besides pineapples, and watermelons from this port. The first rice shipment for Portland, Ort-gon, of about 100 ton3 was made. It i3 understood that hereafter the regular shipments of rice by thi3 line will be very largely increased. The Briggs case seems to be raising a Eerious rumpus in the religious world, and a perusal of the church press shows there are nearly as many opposing opinions on the policy of declaring Prof. Briggs a heretic, as there are re ligious journals in the United States and elsewhere. The Christ ian Union, which is probably the fairest and at the same time one of the most outspoken of " the news pipers mentioned, in treating of the case says : "It is our deliberate judgment that the general assembly has by its action done more to bring the Christian religion into disrepute in this country than could be done by a hundred In gersolls. It has done discredit to the Christian faith by the result which it ha3 reached, by the methods it has employed, and by the spirit it has manifested. The spirit has been one of bitter parti sanship, the method one of ecclesi astical politics a trial, not by a judicial body, but by a mass meeting, elected, not to try, but to condemn. And the result has been to set the Presbyterian church against both the scholarship of the age and its spirit of catholicity." The policy of advocating a tax on incomes is being generally dis cussed by the democratic- press of the United States. Although va rious announcements of Cleveland's attitude on the question have been made from time to time, there seems to be nothing authentic coming directly from him which goes to show whether he will favor the proposed tax or not. There is no doubt a large portion of the democratic press favors the scheme, and most of them hav? little hesi tancy in pointing out the grounds upon which the policy is said to be justified. There. are three points upon which they rely: (1) The justice of the tax ; (2) the needs of the treasury; (3) the neces sity of some new mode of raising revenue, if the tariff is reduced. While the democratic news-papers have no scruples in taking a stand, President Cleveland is watching the results of the proposition from afar, as it were, hoping, as usual, for some popular sign by which he can shape or mis-shape the policy cf his party. II A WAIIAN ANNEXATION. Condensed from the Sun, New York, June 5th. In the June Forum the Hon. Thomas M. Cooley make3 an able argument against the annexation of Hawaii. With persuasive reas oning, in precise and eloquent language this distinguished pro fessor of constitutional law points out what he regards a3 grave ob stacles to the acquisition of the islands. His argument is entitled to the most careful and respectful ex amination; and in the most re spectful manner possible we shall endeavor to show that there are hole3 in it through which you might pitchfork not only Hawaii and Maui and Kauai and Oahu and the minor members of the Sandwich group, but all the little islands of the seas. Briefly and fairly summed up, his constitutional obstacles are these : 1. Hawaii is a sovereign and independent state, and the annex ation is to be by mutual consent, not by purchase, as in the case of Louisiana and Florida and Alaska. To this we reply that the exact constitutional precedent for Hawaii is found in the case of the occu pation of independent Texas by mutual consent. 2. No attempt was made to as certain the wishes of the native pop ulation of Hawaii. This may have been done in the case of Texas, and to some extent in the case of Louisiana and Florida. It certain ly was not done in the case of Alaska. 3. Hawaii is not contiguous like the Louisiana acquisition, Florida and Texas; it is separated from us by a broad expanse of ocean. To this we reply that the exact precedent for a case of non contiguity and distance across the ocean is found in the annexation of Alaska. Thus it will be seen that if Judge Cooley is right as to the main rea sons given for the unconstitution ality of Hawaiian annexation, either the annexation of Texas was unconstitutional or the annexation of AljuJca-.-'-s unconstitutional. Ao"matters stand, wo suppose he would rather accept the latter alternative. Every argument save that of sovereignty of the nation asking admission applies with equal force to Hawaii and to Alaska. The argument as to the independence of the asking nation applies with equal force to Hawaii and Texas. If there is no constitutional precedent for tho annexation of Hawaii, and if Texas rightfully belongs to the Union, then Alaska was unconsti tutionally annexed. Its non-contiguity, the failure to consult the wishes of its inhabitants, the fact that jt was not needful for the ex pansion of our natural growth, the incongruous character of its popu lation, and' the dissimilarity of their institutions, its immense dis tance from our boundaries, all serve to establish the unconstitu tionality of its annexation, if we accept Judge Cooley's "true rule of constitutional construction on the .subject." And if this be true, who owns that vast region to-day? We leave this question to the Hon. Thomas M. Cooley of Michi gan. He is an eminent expounder of constitutional law and wo love to read his writings. But on the present subject, which he has so luminously and serenely discussed, the judge's position is as illogical and impossible as that of a full moon shining down from the zen ith upon a sunlit -sea.

Mr. Peck has been a resident of Honolulu for sprprnl vfi.irs and has been vice- principal of the Royal school since j he came here over iour jears agu. j He has been also general secretary of the Honolulu Y. M. C. A., but has been obliged to give up his duties here in order to enter the ministrv nf the Methodist denomi nation at British Columbia. A NARZioW ESCAPE. Dr. Oliver's Uorse Rolls Down a Pali. Dr. R. Oliver, resident physician of the leper settlement at Molokai, narrowly escaped being dashed down the pali road leading to Kau nakakai. Last Friday morning, Dr. Oliver left the settlement to meet the steamer Mokolii at Kau nakakai to come to Honolulu. He rode his horse up the pali which surrounds the leper settlement and shuts it oft from the rest of the out side world. The pali extends al most perpendicular to - height of over 2000 feet. Winding io the top of the mountain is a narrow trail. This trail is barely wide enough in places for a single horse to pass, yet it is over this dangerous trail that, the kamaainas go up and down with their pack animals. Dr. Oliver stated to an Adver tiser reporter that he had gone more than 1500 feet up, and had passed most of the dangerous places when his horse stepped on a loose stone and instantly rolled down the steep precipice to the valley below. The horse was killed long before it reached the base of the pali. Dr. Oliver by luck dropped on the trail when he fell. The doctor declares it was a most miraculous escape, which he can scarcely account for. A few weeks ago a horse rolled down the same trail and was killed. It will be remembered that the na tive mail carrier and his horse were killed by being thrown off the same pass several months ago. Notwith standing these fatal accidents, the road is used daily by the kamaai nas either upon or leading 'their animals. Grand Masquerade.

One hundred and seventeen years ago, the h'res of independence which had been smouldering in the breasts of a handful of Colonists on the Eastern bord er of the American Continent burst forth in a blaze of glo ry; in that same fire was kind led a patriotic feeling that has descended from generation to generation until the American of today is as full of Yankee Doodle as an egg is of meat. In every clime, the American is to be found, and from Greenland to Yokohama he patronizes the "nickel in the slot" machine that plays ''The Star Spangled Banner. Here in Hawaii you find more American flags flying than in any foreign territory on the map. It's about even with the Hendry Breaker. "Wherever there is a plantation, 3'ou find one of our breakers; people think it is the best, just as Americans show a preference for the stars and stripes.
