TOPICS OF THE DAY,
Forhapa somebody will buy nnd
tako away tha.t parrot, swinging and
with a etroutf British
aocent, in its cage, haugiug'iu Fort
street. If it had the Yankee twaug,
no would hnvo a pretty
honest sort of bird. P. C. Advertiser.
The Advoitiser wisely follows The
Independent's lead in sounding a
note of warning in regard to investments
in highly inflated EUgar stock.
There may oomo a pin to prick the
pubb'e. Can we bpo the reward of
volunteer servicer for annexation
acknowledged in the current boom?
Strange things happen in politics
when high stakes ate played fur
The ex-Judge of I ho
had belter tako a post-graduate
course in tho study of tho
Commerce Law of tho United
State, and the douisions of tho Supreme
Court of that country as to
what constitutes restraint of trade.
After such a study he will find that
a smaller hat will fit his head just
. The greon hills far away appreciate
the rain and so do the cattle
pasturing upou them. In town it i3
objectionable iu spito of I ho road-roaster's
black sand. 'I hero is one
advantago in tho muddy streets,
however, for tho bioyclo rustlers
havo to "go slow" or get a muddy
spill. This class laugh at the lack
of an ordinance to make them ring
their bolls. They are "the poople"
and too independent to act as respectably
as they are compelled to
act in other "oivilized" villagop,
towns or cities. Annexation ordinances
will compel them to be more
respectful to their fellow citizens,
To-day is tho 4Gth anniversary of
the birthday of His Imperial Ma
josty Mutsuhito of Japan, and The
Independent cordially joins in ox-lending
to His Excellency the Japanese
Minister its most cordial congratulations
on tho happy event.
Tho extraordinary progress made by
Japan under tho wise rule and guidance
of tho present Emperor has
made hfs name immortal iu the
pagos of history. It is no easy tusk
to remodel the characteristics of a
natioD, and to dovelop undiscovered
mines of latont ability and power iu
a people who, according to Western
idea, have lain dormant for centuries
only to awake and seize tho opportunities
of Western civilization
in a mo.st marvelous .manuor. No
wonder then that those religiously
inclined nee tho hand of Providence
in this progress of a nation which
may in the Orient perform the same
good work for civilization ami
as did England i days
gone by for tho World at large.
The Cabinet has hold another
menliug and solemnly told tho
planters that no more Chinese will
bo permitted to hnd here out of regard
to the United States and as a
"sop" to tho labor organization op
poed to annexation. At the same
thno permi's for the introduction
of Japanese coolies are boing ifsued
in i most promiscuous manner. It
is a very nice poliny for tho Government
to npposo Asiatic
theoretically and at the same
time allow hordes of Japanese to
laud horo under throe yearB contracts.
The American peoplo will
probably not bo as easily duped by
the "funny" tricks of Mr. Dole's
missionary government as was Admiral
Miller whon he, tho other day,
was told Ihrit a Japanese steamnr
with immigrants and freight simply
called hore with her hutqau cargo
in transit to Puget Sound. Tho
immigrants on board her were landed
and are now distributed on different
plantations and tho Admiral's
opinion of the veracity of the Hawaiian
officials with whom he comes
in contact cannot bo very flattering
to them. As long as tho plantors
aud tho holders of sugar stocks smell
large dividends tho question of annexation
and the good will of the
American people are of small moment.
Big dividends and cheap labor
are the solo issue with our good
''Americans" who are daily
the United States to take
thorn iu and perpetually secure to
thorn the advantages gained by the
Iwilei seems to bo the bele noir of
tho "best" government Hawaii ever
had. The property holders of tho
district who reside there are complaining,
and they havo apparently
good reason to do so. liecoutly,
about one quarter of an acre was
dug up by the Government and tho
rocks removed for building purposes.
An immense hole covering the area
ro'erred to and about 10 feet deep
is now adjoining the lands of tho
residents and has become a reservoir
of stinking water aud a homestead
foi lie FquiiOMH and vnrihin. The
of the Biiard of Health is
called to thi cesspool in the hope
that the of its agents may
tempt thorn in the Iwilei direction
bsfore another cholera epidemic
starts. has not a slaughter
houM) with its ' bloodv" cdorej it
his Frank Cook's sweet-scented
bone mill; it boasts of poi shops and
wash houses aud to its other attractions
it now adds a pest hole. Theo
beautiful points of Iwilui are hidden
from public view by the jail whero
tho prisoners get all the benefit of
tho aromatic malaria of the vicinity.
As a health resort Iwilei if unequalled.

Tho Bulletin is weeping tears
the N. Y. Heratd suddenly appears
aa an anti-annexationist paper.
Tho great Now York paper has been
ably represented here during the
past weeks, and it. has learned that
most of the "stories" sent out from
here to nreato sympathy for tho ring
that stole the country and wishes
to dispose of tho property to some
receiver of stoleu goods, are false
and without the slightest
After a careful investigation
tho N. Y. Horald repretontativo
realized that tho Japanese scaro was,
sheer humbug, and he so informed
his paper. Tho Herald favored annexation
as long as there was a
oaueo for the jingoes to howl and
it wa3 advisable for political reasons
to satisfy tho jingoes. Tho Japaneso
fake has loan tho jingoes
are no longer in demnnd,nutl the N. Y.
Herald naturally asks for along aud
pormauenl rest from the threshed-'
out Hawaiian question. But wo are
sincerely sorry for
who have Inst thoir trump card, '
aud more specially for thoBullotiu,
which of course is unable to understand
or excuse "journalistic" somersault?.
There appeared an item in one of
the olh'cial organs.! few days ago, in
which it -vat. slated that tho police
in the future mil prohibit promiscuous
bathing on tho Ewa Bido of
the Waikiki bridge. Tho Government
has disposed of the wlulo
waterfront at Waikiki thoroby do j
priving the genoral public from the
use of the boach. It was an
policy, and -we wore pleased
to see that tho A. U. party's
contninod a plank providing
for tho restoring of tho beach to Hie
public. Some of our sensitive fellow-citizens
wo are euro thoy belong to
the masculine rex havo evidontly
taken umbrage of tho"Hnwaiians
bathing from the Waikiki promises
of Queen Liliuokalaui, tho Queen-Dowager
aud the Princess Kalulani.
These ladies havo thrown thoir promises
open to the poor Hawaiiuns,
and it is tho only place in Honolulu
where the amphibious aborigines
can enjoy a swim which is a necessity
not a luxury to them. Tho Ha
waiians are not immodest ai a rule,
and wo canuot believe that any of
thoir actions while bathing could
have shocked even tho most prudish
missionary ladv driving along the
Waikiki road. The bathing suits of
tho Hawaiian women are far more
modest thau those iu which our
fashionable summer girls sport
themselves at tho leading resorts in
the oiviltzod world, and oven our
virtuous Marshal can hardly havo
boon so shocked as to issue an order
against "promiscuous bathinir at
Waikiki."- Tf tho intention is to
stop the Ilawaiians from using the
promises of their Aliis we hope that
tho agents of the royal ladies will
oauso seven font board foticos to bo
eroded between the lots aud the
road and thereby protect tho super-virtuous
delicacy of our goody-goodies
