We see by a special dispatch to the San

public justice or impair the public safety,

That mercy show to mo,"
as Pope renders the Great Prayer, is no less a
fit supplication for a public functionary than
lor the recluse in his closet. But the respon'
sibilities of the executive pardon are enhanced
by conditions precedents the wantonness and
prevalence of crime and the difficulty of con
viction in cases of guilt, So many undeserv
ing criminals escape through the frailties of
our judicial system, that an executive is apt to
hold deserving ones who do not escape not
only to atone for their own offenses but to do
vicarious atonement for others; and the pub
lic are apt to require this of him. Yet it is
wrong. The remedy fo. the impunity of
crime is not to leave the function of mercy in
operative but to reform the other. Wc trust
the Governor will be guided by bis own

MINISTER DAOORTT ON HAWAIIAN
We have been tossed for two years like a
shuttlecock between conflicting purposes and
opinions concerning the Hawaiian reciprocity
treaty. Its alleged violation by Hawaii led
Senator Jonas, of Louisiana, to Introduce a
joint resolution for foreclosing upon King
Kalakaua and the sentiment most prevalent
has been that in favor of the measure, and
the common opinion that Chinese and other
foreign sugars have been pouring into this
country duty free.through Hawaiian ports, to
the great damage of the American planter
and the great scandal of Hawaii.
While no action seems to have been taken
on the subject by Congress the Government
Instructed our Minister at Hawaii, Mr. Dag
gett, to examine into and report the facts.
That official has accordingly just reported
that there has been no violation of the
treaty as alleged, that no foreign
sugars have at any time arrived
at the Sandwich Islands, nor any sugars been
exported thence to the United States except
ing Sandwich Island sugars, and that the
whole exports are considerably less than the
While this may be so, and is very satis
factory, so far as it goes, we think the treaty
ought nevertheless to be revoked upon other
grounds, and reciprocity treaties abstained
from. There can be no adequate cause for
relinquishing to the Hawaiian planter from the
United States Treasury upon his sugrs ex
ported to this country 2 cents a pound,
especially as he is constructively only a Ha
waiian planter, and his place of business is
probably Boston or New York, nor for ex
tending any privileges to Hawaiian sugars that
are not common to all foreign sugars.
The government of so vast a country as
this must be carried on upon general princi
ples and by universal, not partial, rules and
the sooner we abandon reciprocity
treaties, in our foreign relations as
governmental policy, the better. The
reciprocity is always vague and undefined and
usually, as in this case, a pretence. The ex
clusive favors pretended to be sought by the
American Government can be dispensed with.
There are but about 40,000 Polynesians in
Hawau) the population being chiefly
American. In this, and all such cases, the
real interests served by such measures are in
dividual or class, not national ; in this case
American, not Hawaiian. The resident Sand
wich Island planter is probably a Yankee,
certainly not a natus, nor often a proprietor.
The proprietory rights are situated in Boston
or New York, and that Minister Daggett's re
port is made in the interest of the
proprietory planter there is probably not much
