That llicro has been persistent cITort mada
for same tiiuu past ou tho part of ccitniu per
sons uigcr fur position and powor to create, ntt
antipathy between tho nativo and foreign popu
lation uf theso Islands is too evident for injy
ono of common seine and capable of reading
in tho Hawaiian language to doubt. The
identity of IIiobo principally engaged in so
base an endeavor is also no less certain than
tho fart of tho endeavor itself having been
made: but, as to tho end und objoct sought for
in this systoiuatic misrepresentation uf tho
motives generally actuating tho conduct of tho
whites, especially lu tlioir rolatiou In nativo
and national interests, wo are unable as de
finitely to judge.
In considering a question of this kind, it is
impossible for n reasoning mind to avoid a,
prospect of the possible results of an eztonsion
of thu doctrines sought to bo inculcated ; or
a conclusion that they will I titfndcd by con
tinued preaching and the reiteration of mis.
representation and falsehood. It is natural for
a confiding peoples as me the Hawaiian, to
glvo credeuco to tho assertions of such ns
muke vehement protestations of their own iHs.
interested friendship, and u great citni'orn for
the well being of tho initivo; audit it not
difficult to comprehend tho possibility under
such circumstances of unscrupulous persons
m-qulring by fultehood a popularity they have
been unable to gain without it. lit so far ns
tho aim of such to gain personal Intluenco
alone, has been achieved, perhaps Iho means
used to attuiti tho end might bu ignored ; but
the natural results of such teaching, can in
nu vtuy bo confined tu its attainment. Tho ill
will that such persons have created, or uro
capable nf creating, nnd upon which they look
for theit own proferment, Is in tin way likely
tu terminate in tlio accomplishment of their
own ends if these bo limited tu their acquisi
tion of political influence or power.
It is already evident that distrust of tho
THE SUPREME COURT.
Wo havo ngatn a full Supromo bench and n
good ono. Tho death of Chancellor and Chief
Justice Harris last July left Iho judiciary
crippled and as tho King was absent nt the
timo a long interval elapsod without tliis im
portant position boing filled. On Saturday
last, Mr, A, I?. Jinld, I'irsl Associate Justice,
nnd Vtce-Chancollor, was elevated to thooflko
of Chiof Juslico and Chancellor; .Mr, li. Mc
Cillly, Second Associate Justico was mado
First Assoclato and Mr. II, II. Austin was ap
pointed Second Associate Justice.
Mr. Judd is a nativo of tho Islands ; ho was
born In Honolulu on tho 7th of January, 1836,
and is now in his forty-third year. Aftor at
tending the best schools in Honolulu lio went
to tho Stalos and entered Yale College In 16110
mid graduated two years aftur. lio then en
tered tho law school nt Harvard Collogo, grad
uating in 1601 with tho degree of IL.ll. Ho
returned tho samo year to Honolulu and be
gun tho praclico of law. Ho was elected to
tho Legislature from South Kona, Hawaii, in
'OS und from Honolulu in 1872, having been
defojtod for tho lattor position in the interval.
Ho was mado Attornoy-Ueiieriil in tho Cabiuot
of King I.unalilo and in 1871 was appointed
Second Assoclato Justico by King Kalakalla,
and afterward, by the resignation of Chiof
Justico Allen, was made Fiist Associate Jus
tice, which placo ho tilled with credit unlit his
rccont appointment to tho highest office In the
Kingdom, except that of King.
Tlio Hon, Iiuwrcnco McCully, who has now
succeeded to tho important position of First
Associate Justico mid Vicu-Chaticollur of tho
Kingdom, is a native of thcStntoof New York,
and a graduato of Ynlo College Ho has bcon
a resident uf these Islands sinco tho year 1854.
On tho 1st of September, 1835, ho was ap
pointed Police Justico of tho town- of Ililo,
Hawaii, which post ho occupied until his res
ignation, April 1, 1837. March 11, 1830, ho
wan admitted as n momber of tho liar uf tho
Supremo Court, and soon aftor visitod tho
United Statos for the purposo of further stud
ies in tho profession which ho hid chosen.
Ketttrning to his adopted Island homo lio acted,
during tho incumbency of Hon. S. II- Phillips,
Attorney-Ucnoral, an Deputy of that office,
discharging the duties with marked ability
nnd acceptance. Oiiho reconstruction of tho
Itcnch of tho Supreme Cuint, February 1st,
1877, ho was appointed Socnnd Assoclato Jus
tico, and tho lapso of noarly fivo years incum
bency has proved tho wisdom of the selection.
Judgo McCully possesses not only tlio qualifi
cations of a legal education combined with a
naturally logical mind, but ho has had tho ad
vantage of much oxpurionco in thu practice of
our Courts, und Is moieovor well vctscd in the
Hawaiian language and acquainted with tho
characteristics of tho pcnplo.
Tho position of Second Assoclato Justice of
tho Supreme Court, mado vacant by tho ad
vancement of Judge McCully, Ii.ik very ap
propriately beon filled by the elevation from
tho liar to tho Bench of tho Hon. Benjamin
Halo Austin, formorly of Buffalo, N. Y., but
who has resided and practiced in Honolulu
sinco April, 1880. Juilgo Austin, wliilo no
longer n, young man, has, however, arrivod nt
that period in lifo when thu judgment,
riponod by experience, is cool und mature ho
will be Fifty in January next. Ho has beon in
full practice as a lawyer for ovor twouty.fivo
again the anclsnl Hawaiian, or tho Jewish
system of " rofugo ; " only, we ought to know
where we stand.
It Is p-.ssible that Ihe Attorney-General
may desirn to settle his nwn private difficulties
with Mr. illbson first, but wo wish to assure
him that tho community is In no temper to
permit this matter to bo overlooked.
The perpetuation of tho Auto nnd Us rocent
revival in the wnrtt form is one of tho living
reminders of ancisnt Hawaiian paganism. It
had Its origin in the dark nges of tho past
whc.itho raco was swimming In a sea Of Ig
norance, suparstitlon and llcontioiunoss ; whoti
rulers and ruled allko were steeped In vice ;
when clm.tlty and right wero unknown as
It has been the practice in all times and
among nil peoples to perpetuate national cus
toms nnd celebrate noted events in song and
dance. The ancient Havtaiians ovidsntly did
not possess tho power of discriminating be
tween what was morally right and wrong, nml
tinforltinntoly preserved most carefully in tlieir
Tiir7'i and iiiim, ns a legacy to their de
scendants, that which portrays the basest of
human passions. Tho hula uf to day, modified
nnmowhat from the ancient form, shows what
must havo bcon the condition of tho pooplo.
Tho greatest caro was takon In having tho
huli perfect. Tlio finest lormed and most beau
tiful girls wero selected and carefully trained
and in n half denuded state such as custom
allowed and demanded, uppoarod beforo largo
aildioncei uf all ages, under tho patron igo of
tlio chiefs, and with gestures nnd posturiiigs
indie itivo of licontiotis acts, accompanied by
uuchasto songs, could only oncourago tho un
bridled .immorality of tho timo, when no law
was known but tho tcilt. It U tiiifortunatu that
thu id hns survived whilo other customs
which should havo boon preserved aro
Twenty years ngo tho hul(t prevailed to n
great extent, tho hoad-qitartois of which nt
that timo woro In Koohiit. Tho '. 0. Ad
reriVi' of January 15, 1857, in alluding to
thu deinoralizrig effect iif this d.mco said : "An
indignant public will not sit quietly by nnd
seo their constitutional rights invaded nnd
trampled under foot," K.imchamuhn IV. ro
cognized the evil in his addross boforo the Ha
waiian Agricultural Society in 1850, though
an attempt was mado nt tho same timo to li
cense them thtoughoiit tho kingdom.
Wu rogiot that tho FMe of last Wednesday
encourages the hulit, and views tho criticisms
of tho I'm'.ss and Kuoknn nnd tho sermon de
livered in Fort Street Church last Sunday
evening, with an unfriendly oyo. Wo can not
ngrco with tho KUk that "all dances aro
equally good. " Whore tho huht prevails its
ruinous iiifluenco cannot but bo felt; idleness,
dissipation, immorality nnd accompanying evils
will bo found with it. Tho stutctucnt mado by
our contemporary that "it is proper for tho
puro minded and evil fur tho impure," is argu
ment enough to cause its discontinuance. It
excites only tho vilest emotions in tho specta
tor and will soon make tho purest impure.
Tile fact that ''old habiliments and customs"
aro kept alive in other countries which tho
King has rccontly visitod is no plea for tho
hula. Wo are in favor of tho rovival of old
Hawaiian customs nnd games, but would favor
something moro crcdltablo to tho race than
this barbarous danco.
No ono can in his heart deny that tho hula
can bo productivo of anything but evil, and all
know that a public exhibition of it would not
bo toloratcd'iu any country calling itself civil
ized. Tho malinor and habits of thoso in
authority aro always studied and copied by
tho masses, and where the hulu is fostered by
royal pitronagc, what can wo expect of tho
pooplo ; We question Hie propriety nlso ol
giving pilblio exhibitions of this sort for tho
unlet tuiument of official or other visitors who
coma to our shores. Aftor witnessing tho
diabolical perfection of tho huh no foreigner
could take away with him n very high opinion
of the morals of tho nativo race, und could
scarcely credit that Christianity is among
them moro than a sham.
