THE DAILY HERALD
WEDNESDAYFEBRUARY 161887
SAMOA
There is something very pathetic in
the complaint of King Malietoa of
Somoa that foreigners are encourogirg
mischief among his subjects for the
purpose as he puts it of selling arms
and ammunition to them It would
be brutal to unsympathctically enquire
what is the poor monarch going to do
about it The proffer of encourage
ment to the distressed king by his
brother sovereign of Hawaii is also
pathetic the more so because it must
prove unavailing to avert the troubles
of our Kings alleged kinsman If
Samoa retains autonomy and is granted
the happiness of peacefully pursuing
its humble way among the nations it
will in all probability be due to any
one Power being prevented by the
others claiming weighty interests there
from making conquest of the realm
There is one thing certain however
and that is that foreigners having
gained a trading foothold in Samoa
must henceforth and forever bear com
manding influence there
He would be the wisest and most
statesmanlike diplomat provided he
had the power who should bring about
a settlement of the difficulties in that
quarter with a scheme for united na
tive and foreign self government com
prising full and free privileges of resi
dence und business for all well behaved
foreigners giving constitutional citizen
ship to all such after a certain period
of domiciliation in the country without
more than a form of registration This
would obviate the arising 0f difficulties
such as arc now looming up with in
creasing magnitude in this Kingdom
where there is danger of the interests
of the aliens one day overshadowing
those of subjects A system in which
naturalization would be more simpli
fied and less restricted in Hawaii may
yet be seen to be the first stage in a
new career of national independence
If reconstruction and not partition is
the policy upon which the agents of
the Powers are going to act in Samoa
they surely should be able to contrive
a constitution tinder which Malietoa
and his successors may have peace
and happiness while foreigners develop
ing the resources of the country may
co operate with them in governing
the country wisely and well
NOTESAND COMMENTS
Electric wires are being put under
the ground in New York There are
fully enough wires overhead in Hono
lulu now but if electric light wires are
to be added in our narrow streets the
problem of preventing a nuisance of
them all will present itself for solution
There was a Dr Miner in Honolulu
but long resident members of the
faculty cannot identify him by the
accounts of himself given by Dr Fred
erick T Miner to a New York paper
republished in yesterdays Herald
The statements in the interview in
question arc even asserted to have been
made out of whole cloth
Mr Richard T Booth one of Amer
icas great temperance apostles goes to
his native shores by the steamship
Australia to day Should but a tithe
of the influence he has started on be
half of sobriety keep on its way intact
his visit will yield results that will tell
with most gratifying effect on the future
happiness and peace of Honolulu
homes and streets Even those who
may regard a total abstinence advo
cate as an extremist will not deny Mr
Booth the character of a thorough gen
tleman in every sense of the word as
well as a man who is using rare talents
for the good of his fellowmen
The Lava
ymty
VALUABLE PHOTOGRAPHS
Flow and
Hawaii
Scenery of
Mr J J Williams on Monday struck
off a large number of photographs
from the negatives taken by his travel
ing artist Mr Severin and was still
printing them yesterday without getting
ahead of the demand This new
scries of pictures comprises not only
many differcht views of the lava flow
of 1887 but pictures of scenery on the
island of Hawaii embracing objects of
remarkable historic interest Among
the latter are three very ancient idols
one of them known among Hawaiians
by three different names The first is
called Kumauna and is a natural
figure of rock eight feet high bearing
some resemblance to the human form
but without any mark of sculpture by
the hand of man Even in the photo
graph appear rude features as of a
man Mr F L Clarke the Govern
ment commissioner to take observa
tions of the recent volcanic phenome
na savs it was difficult to obtain
guides to the scat of this idol and al
most equally hard to gain the spot
when a guide was found as it is all but
inacccsibie being situated in the mid
dle of a stream on the rugged moun
tain side Tradition shows Kuma
una to have been worshipped by the
natives for past ages unknown and it is
credibly stated that they till regard
the rude object with profound rever
ence
The next idol is Kaolocwa for
merly the property of Kamanawa
grandfather of His Majesty Kalakaua
It has been carefully preserved by des
cendants of the family in whose
charge it has always been Another
interesting idol photographed at the
same time as that just mentioned is
one found at Kaalaikc which is known
variously as Onahulu Kuamu and
Kalaipahoa
The pictures of the lava flow are re
markably clear giving a much better
idea of the different phases of the lava
than might by many be expected in
photographs There are views of the
grand eruptive cones and cavities
where the molten matter with its hetero
geneous burden burst forth with appall
ing force and volume after having
taken a subterranean course from a
vent also photographed farther up the
mountain Members of the expedi
tion disposed amidst the wilderness of
fresh cjecta serve to give an idea of the
magnitude of the masses of reck
pumped up from the bowels of the
earth The picture of the flow1 where
it blocks up thti Kings highway for a
distance of about four miles isparticu
larly clear
Then there are photographs showing
the most luxuriant of wild tropical foli
age tins class including that 01 the
rock idol before mentioned Une
cives a magnificent specimen of the
pulu fern rearmc a massive cluster of
fronds high over the heads of the
party Mr Clarke standing with
bared head looking upward at the
beautiful crowth the lmht full in his
face wears the radiant aspect that un
der such circumstances is very natural
on the face of so enthusiastic a fern
connoisseur There are other pictures
with points of attractiveness worthy of
notice but people must be left to see
and choose for themselves
