PEACE TO BE PROCLAIMED,
Results of Oriental Plenipotentiaries

Though the arrangements for peace
have not yet been officially promul
gated, the Government Gazette being
silent on the subject, yet there does
not appear to be farther reason to
doubt that the plenipotentiaries who
have exercised the responsibility of
determining the terms of the agree
ment precedent to tho termination of
hostilities, have finally, after ample
discussion, finished their labors, and
the Chinese negotiators will shortly
take their leave and return says the
Japan Herald Mail of April 18th.
Up to this no authoritative an
nouncement has been made of the de
tails of the compact, though it is not
likely that publicity will be long de
layed, but it is generally surmised
that they will not be found to greatly
differ from what was originally pub
lished in the Jiji Shimpo, and these
were recognition of Korean indepen
dence; cession of Formosa and the
Pescadores; surrender of a portion of
Shingking; payment of an indemnity
of 300,000,000 taels; and grant of cer
tain trading privileges, which are to
form the subject of a special conven
tion. Upon the assumption that the above
mentioned demands substantially
represent what has been agreed to by
the plenipotentiaries, and without
waiting for the publication of what
has actually been determined, so far
as can at present be ascertained,
speaking generally, the Japanese ap
pear to be far from enamored of the
result of the labors of Count Ito and
Viscount Mutsu, though what farther
was expected to be wrung out of the
Chinese to satisfy national avaricious
ness, is not very clear.
Several of the journals are already
writing against the terms of peace,
and some of them published in the
metropolis have been suspended by
the authority of the Minister of Home
Affairs. Elated by its extraordinary
amount of success, both on land and
at sea, the nation knows no modera
tion, and there appears to be no
bounds to its exultation and its cupid
ity; it has become giddy and exhib
its just as much rancor against China
as though no peace had been discuss
ed and amicably arranged.
The present excitement of the popu- i
lace is altogether irrational, but as is i
usually the case in this country, will
be likely to end in nothing more
formidable than an infinity of useless
talk. The effervescence which pre
vails just now amongst civilians af
fords a singular contract with the pa
cific sentiments which appeared to
prevail so long as it was feared that
the war, with all its trials, might prove
of protracted duration, but no sooner
is there an assurance of immediate
peace than fickle public opinion at
once veers round, and the war's con
tinuance is the one popular sentiment
of the day. We think that so far from
dissatisfaction being justified, that the
people of this country ought to feel,
and be willing to admit, that their
negotiators have made prodigiously
successful and very profitable bargain
witn humiliated and victimized China.
If the people of that unfortunate
country complain of the hard terms
which have been exacted hy their con
quering foe, which apparently had to
be submitted to in order to stay hos
tilities, nobody could hnd fault with
them for so doing, aud the world will
watch with interest what China finds
to say on the subject.
It does not seem to have yet oc
curred to the Japanese malcontents
that the emperor, in whom is vested
the prerogative of making peace as
well as that of making war, must have
been kept entirely conversant with
the negotiations as they have pro
ceeded, and it is consequently with
his majesty's concurrence aud ap
proval that the terms of peace have
been agreed to. The name and will
of the sovereign is so potent that the
cabinet will be able to still popular
excitement by advising the issue of an
imperial rescript dealing with the
subject; the tempes-t of popular pas
sion will then be stilled and calm
Were it so to happen that the Em
peror of China should be advised by
the counsellors of the throne to refuse
to ratify the agreement whichtbe
Chinese envoys have signed and
f-ealed, that would be an act of inex
cusable bad faith, since telegraphic
messages have been frequently pass- !
ing during the progress of the uego-
tiatious, it i3 therefore to be appre- J
bended that nothing of importance
has been agreed to by Li Hung
Chang without previous sanction from
Whilst it must be a subject of su-
preme satisfaction to the Chinese Em-
peror and his court, that the capital ot
his emnire has been nreserved from
the violation and intrusion of the vic
torious troops of Japan, yet it must be
confessed that the sacrifice by which
that impending crowning humiliation
have been averted are indeed heavy
and grievous to be borne; but what
will assuredly excite anxiety and
some apprehension is what spirit will
actuate the Japanese army when it
learns that its ambitious designs to
capture Peking and dictate the terms
of peace there have been frustrated by
what will be considered to be by them
a disappointing and partially inglo
rious peace. The emperor, however,
wills it, and, however distasteful it
may be when his majesty's fiat goes
forth, the army has no option but to

PORT CHARGES REMITTED
Contract With Canadian Steamers
For Carrying Mails.
Made by Minister Damon luiler the Act
of 1894 Other Companies Soon
Minister Damon has recently
closed a contract with the Australian-Canadian
pany, under the Act of 1894, which
remits to that company all the
port charges except pilotage and
Though the agreement was com
pleted but a short time ago the
conditions will date from October,
1894. The contract is made under
the Act authorizing the Executive
Council to make contracts for mail
service between ports of the Re
public of Hawaii and North
America, Australia and interme
diate ports, and to grant aid to
steamships carrying such mails.
The Republic grants the steam
ship company for the term of two
years, freedom from all charges at
the port of Honolulu for wharfage,
lights, buoys, blanks at the Cus
tom House and harbormaster's
fees for the steamships plying be
tween said ports ; also grants free
use of all those tracts of land in
Honolulu known as lots No. r6
and 57 on the Esplanade, for stor
ing coal not exceeding 3000 tons at
any one time for the use of the
The steamship company on the
other hand agrees during the term
of two years to carry all Hawaiian
inail3 without charge to this Gov
ernment and to hold to the present
schedule of passenger and freight
It was the intention of Minister
Damon to complete similar con
tracts with the Oceanic and Pacific
Mail during his recent trip to the
Coast, but a combination of cir
cumstances prevented his eo doing.
It is only a matter of a few weeks,
however, when all the steamship
companies will come under the
same contract. The money saved
to the companies is from $125 to
$150 a month.
Photographs of Company A have
been sent to the ladie3 who kindly
furnished them with edibles and
refreshments during the late un
pleasantness. Captain Smith has
received numerous replies in re
turn, thanks being extended.
