THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVEUTISEH: HONOLULU, APRIL
6, 1895, The Pacific Commercial Advertiser Isaued Every Morning, Sunday, by the Except Hawaiian Gazette Company 41 No. 818 Merchant Street. WALLACE R. FARRLNGTON, EDITOR. SATURDAY, APRIL 6, 1895. We give in another column the much discussed expression of opin ion given by Thomas G. Shearman in Brooklyn, N. Y. The spirit prompting a slur upon a refutation of this collection of fallacies is only to be compared with the blatant resonance of a flippant, un christian tongue that delights in casting reflections upon every ef fort tending to enlighten and im prove the moral and physical con dition of our fellow man. The Prussian Parliament does not trouble itself with such trivial matters as theater hats. It is ex hausting its patience and spending time on no less a problem than the abbreviation of feminine skirts. The long skirts of walking costumes now in vogue collect germs, mi crobes and other things, that the hygenic authorities say are as bad. If dress reform legislators continue in their course, they will have a woman's rebellion on their hands. The suggestion by Dr. Wood that the Board of Health should be supplied with some place to file and preserve the public documents of that department ought to receive prompt attention. Under present conditions, valuable records, which can only be replaced by years of study and investigation, may be destroyed by fire in a twinkling. In the interests of humanity, the country cannot afford to take the risk it is now running and stand the chance of closing doors after the horse is stolen. The value of many of these documents cannot be reckoned in dollars and cents. every commercial interest will be a3 well served.'' He might with as much reason state that there is no necessity of telegraphic commu nication between South Dakota and New York by way of Chicago. England would gladly construct lines to carry dispatches overland through Canada to Montreal, leav ing the only expense to United States citizens of building a con necting link north from Dakota and south to New York from Mon treal. And the Canadian Pacific could very well arrange to ship all of Dakota's products East. In fact, England could take the United States commerce and carry it on entirely with very little trouble, and would be doing it today were it not for the patriotic men of '76, who set the maik of American pat riotism and aggression. Unfortu nately Senator Pettigrew and men ofhis stamp have not absorbed any of that spirit. At the same time he cites how well England can do American business with Ha waii he makes the supposition that England would Jimiy 5opie$ March i8gt What about the cable? What about the canal? Does the United States Senate be lieve that other governments will be willing to accept a "dog in the manger" policy and allow the Pacific to be without a cable? Do the Senators for one moment imagine that the Nicaragua Canal will continue to exist merely in the imagina tion of the world and as a channel only for paper ships? We know not. Hawaii is in terested in both schemes to a very great extent because there is no doubt that her commerce will be increased by the com pletion of one or both of the Captain Crossman never spoke with more truth than when he re marked that if the Aliancia had raised the English flag the port holes of the Spanish gunboat would have closed and the ship ailowed to proceed on its course with no more ado. The United States possesses a class of politicians desperately anxious to copy Great Britain's policies in all other respecte, but when any move is made to estab lish a wholesome respect for the American flag and American inter ests in foreign waters or foreign lands, the hysterical cry of "jingo ism" is at once raised.

Who will think you are 1 Dietz Oil Stoves, the Senator Pettigrew broke loose on Hawaiian history a second time during the last days of the Fifty third Congress, the occasion being the discussion of the $500,000 ap propriation for the submarine cable to this country. The now ex Senator seems to have a particular antipathy for anything and every thing Hawaiian, and calls the most mythical and idiotic ideas into play that have ever been expound ed on the floor of the United States Senate to support his position. In the first place he informs his colleagues that there are "637 Americans, or persons of American descent, who live upon the Ha waiian Islands." How he gets the American population down to this number is a mystery, unless he draws the inference that all the so called Americans have been dis franchised by recent orders of the Administration and the remainder have been deported or left the country within the past few months. This sage of the Dakotas also says the cable is not neces sary from a commercial stand point. "It is not necessary in the matter of news, for it is well known that if we do not build this cable England will build a cable from the western terminus of the Canadian Pacific railroad by way of these islands to her Aus tralian possessions. Therefore, we shall be able to communicate, and j amounting to $3,500,000. In 1893 we imported $9,000,000 worth of sugar, and the duty at the present rate would have been $3,600,000.
