SATURDAY PEESS .
JULY 1, 1S82.
A tale of sufTcrinp; naurallj, elicit hnmtn
sympathy. In moat catoi thii lyrrintthy is
gratuitous mid profnao. Moreover, it i apt to
bo strongly projtidiccd and almost inrariably
in favor of tho victim.
Tlio narration of one absconding Norwegian
or other Liborer will do more injury to the repu
tation of the Hawaiian planters than can b
contradictod by the testimony of twsnty
worthy men who are able and willinc to
vouch for their intogrity and humanity.
One's feoliliKS mnst riso when readinj of
the merciless troatment of thoso who are held
in "bondsce" under contract nd who, ons
would think, have no hope of bottering thoir
condition. Wo will not question the absolute
truth of thoir statements, but take it for
granted that the master is a brnto and th
servant a suffering slave. Is it any wonder
that tho roadors of tho San Francisco Chronicle
havo conceived a horror of the contract system
in vogue in theso Islands ? They do not
know that without this system it wonld b
quito impossible to keep a plantation supplied
with hands, nor rcalizo that tho same system,
under various names, is employed in every
country to a groater or less 'extent and that
without it, for a basis, tho re would bo no
stability in many departments of business, It
docs not occnr to them that there must neces
sarily bo two sides to every question, and that
they do not writo t ascertain, or care to listen
to tho other sido. There is moro ssntiment
than sonso in this, and yet we are all nliko
subject to tho same weaknesses.
So far, of tho many readers of " Hawaiian
Honors "whose hoarts are pitying the poer
Norwegians, how many have thought for a
moment that possibly the planter and con
tractor may havo thoir troubles, and troubles
that are occasioned by these very people ?
Wo havo before us notes, which, had they
found their way into print in place of tho
Chronicle lonianccs, would cause the jreat
public to thank its stars that it was not
obliged to contract for such help in the ttb
senco of any available substitute. In ono case
a gcutleman shipped a Norwegian murried
couplo who contracted for threo years ; the
passage money to Honolulu waa advanced by
tho contractor and was to bo refandod in
gradual payments. The roan remained juat
twonty-ono months out of the thirty-six con
tracted for, and departed leaving; behind him his
wife who was expecting soon to become a
mother, and who for threo months was nnable to
work and was a continual source of anxiety,
worriment and expense. This man, who de
frauded his employer, deserted his wife and
unborn child, doubtless has a tale which our
calumniators will gratefully help him to un
fold. Another case : a man and hit wife shipped
having full knowledge of all that was ex
pected of them in their duties about the house
and promises of their employer. They had
two small children : theso children ware al
lowed tho same privileges of those of the
employer and bocamo almost like members of
tho family. Tho parties in question were
satisfied with their contract. They gave satis
faction and wore so well disposed their
employer voluntarily increased their wages.
Everything went well until the CArom'cktroub
los began. Tho Communistic spirit was spread
ing and in a very short timo the "sulky silence"
of tho man was broken by snarling; words.
His employer fell ill and was nursed by the
Norwegian, who seemed for the time to have
rocovered his original amiability, and the sal
ary was again increasd. While receiving this
pay he expressed a desire to leave, and was told
by his employer that ho was at liberty to go
provided he would refund tho amount of pas
sago money still due. This ke said he could
not accomplish; yot it has been dono over und
over, and is constantly being dons. The result
was that ono line day he departed incognito
per barkontine JDitcottry without leaving as
much as an " 1. O. U." with his employer as
a souveuir of their former agreeable relation
ship. A fow clays later his wife took her departure,
and, iu place of the one trunk she brought
with her, took two well.filled'trunks and four
largo bundles, her accumulation during the
ninu months of (servitude. Three aro not ex
ceptional cases ; nor ato thny so aggravating
aa othcra wo might cite. The difficulty experi
enced iu securing good servants iu this king
dom, ami tho difficulty in retaining them, make
it eouliact system a uecessity, and yet it will
be seen bow, with such people at least, the
contract is almost worthless us u surety of an
employer's getting his money's worth ; and of
thceo things the readors of the Chronic! who
are religiously pitying the peoni know nothing
nor will any amount of evklauce uouvince them
that there are two sides to the question,
Wo are induced to tho foregoing remarks
from tho certificate to alleged troubles by ono
A. H. Lange, who styles bisaself "Comtuis
siouerjiro Inn, among the Norwegians on the
Sandwich Islands," recently paraded in cer
tain papers in Chicago aud Bast Francisco, who
himself was a "shipped man" on one of our
plautatious, and from tho trouble und discon
tent which ho incitod among his fellows, baa

tion that ban since followed between Nor

LK0I8LATIVE VS TEIIFERENOE.
Tlio Hawaiian mmbora of tbo legialotivo
body should not forgot that the duties nml re
sponsibilities of their offico aro limited. It Is
troc thoy havo bcon choson spokosmon of tlm
sover! districts which thoy ropresont and,
though somo of them speak a groit deal too
much and by no moans to (ho point, they nro
ontltlod to their tnni st speech ninklng ob
Somo of the provincial members of the body
seem to have conceived n wrong impression
concerning their share in the Administration of
goTcrmnontnl filTairs. Thesn jood people,
who no doubt intend to do right and nro doing
tho best thoy know how, must not forget that
the Ministry i nbovo them and superior to
thorn and under no consideration whiitovor nro
thoy to tiBtirp tho power which rents solely
with tint body.
The subordinate positions tinder Government
aro occupied by those who nro supposed to bo
capable of filling them wmthib-; until they
havo proved thcmsolvcM iiicnpiimo no one lias
aright to qncstion this capability. If fraud
is suspected investigation is in ordoij whoro
there is tin apparent catmo for suspicion Rtich
investigations aro not only out of ortlor but
they are a silly and it sinful wnsto of timo and
monoy. Moreover tho Legislature has nothing
to do with the investigations iu question, other
than requesting tho Ministiy to institute them,
and when thoy go beyond this thoy meddle
with affairs which do not concoru them. Tho
Minsters in making their appointments bo
come responsible for thorn; whon n Minister
secures bonds, and vouches for the proper ful
fillment of tho duties of an officor ho has ap
pointed, some one in whom ho trusts, what
right has tho roproiontativo from some obecttro
district to gnthor a clique- about him, vole nil
investigation mid appoint a coramitteo to h.tt
rass the suspected official whose rcportn are tu
bo mado only to his Ministers? Is thote it
head or a tail to this Government? Ato certain
numbers el the logislativo body to bo per
mitted to do ns they ploaBc? Ate thoy doing
so because they bogin to feol thnt thoy can do
so with impunity, or bocatiso thoy have not
been taught their duties and tho limits of thoir
duties! It is, to say tho least, a jross insult
to tho Ministry which highly rospectnbio body
will hardly retain the respect of tho commu
nity if it cannot command that of thoso who
aro beneath it.
Whon Mr. Kapeua said on Saturday last that
the roBolution introduced by Mr. Pnlohnu "was
both ridiculous and childish and ho was much
surprised at its introduction," ho spoke tho
mind of tho community at large, for tho iobo
Intion was that tho Atlornoy-Cenoral bo in
structed to prosecuto tho Collector-General
and his officers for having opium in possession.
The resolution was received with loud laughtor,
and aftor Mr, Palolmu considered awhilo he
moved that hiu production bo laid upon the
tabic. What Mr. Palohau ought to h tvo knot u
at the timo is what every one knows now; that
a quantity of opium had bocn received at the
Custom Houso: that tho ofGciulu believed tho
only way to entrap tho consignee was to keep
perfectly quiet until his suspicions wero over
when, in all probability, ho would begin to
make enquiries which would nltiroately lead
to the discovery of the guilty party. Thuy
therefore requested tho native who know ot
the discovery of the opium to "say nothing
about it." This aroused the bttspicion of thu
ingonuons kanaka and the socrot came to tlio
eats of tho equally ingenuous member of the
Legislature whoso "lidiculotis and childish"
resolution has canscd something beside laugh
tsr in the houso. An iuvostigation is called
for. The dictatoiial element, which predom
inates this sossiou and is over an obstruction,
distinguishes itself by taking the mattor out
of tho bauds of the Ministry. No ono is
more anxious for un investigation than each
and every officer whoso roputation has been
questioned by the "ridiculous aud childish"
document which wasimmodiatoly consigned to
tho oblivion it so justly merited; its famo HveM
after it aud it should bo a warning to all over
zealons representatives that if they aro not
careful to confine thomsclvoB exclusively to
their own business there is the utuioBt danger
of their becoming the laughing stock uf tho
THE 'CONTINGENT FUND."
On Wednesday afternoon tho Logislnttiro
had under consideration tho item in tho Appio
priution Bill providing for the expending of
the sum of $00,000 for un "aimed foicc, con
tingent fund to ho oipoudod by thu King and
Cabinet Council," and to he under the control
of tho Attoruey-Goncrul'a department. Thin
is ouo of thoso iudoGuito itouu that tho tax
payers aro unable to understand. If tho
monoy is intended for a apociul polico foico or
an armed constabulary, it should bo so utatod iu
word that could not bo misunderstood. An
"armed forco" eavow of an army flavor, and
tbo country has hud quito enough of this uso
leis und foolish waBtoof funds on nay dohlicrs.
Tho Attornoy-Goueral, In suppoit uf tho bill,
said that an urmed fores wim necessary to
keep order und in caso uf threatened riot to
prouorve tho poaco, and spoke of tho largo
numbers of armod Chinoae iu thu Kingdom, aa
a cauao for alarm. Mr. Gibson, spoakiug on
tho eatiio, had particular reference to tho army
aud called attention to the necessity on ono
occasion of calling on foreign nion-of-war iu
port for protection, und said that wo should
have u force aufBolout to quell all disturbances
aud render it unnecessary to cull for foreign
assistance This ia all very propei, but tlio
tenor of tho remarks was, as wo had sup
posed, that tho money is to he expended on an
organized force auxiliury to tho army, Mr.
Bishop iu opposition to the bill, called atten
tion to the fact that one Miulttor had stated
that the appropriation was for soldier, ami
tho others for u police force, which showed a
division of opinion. Ho thought that there
Whs little to fear from tho Ohlnesoand that tho
money would b eipondoil on "show soldlerd,"
Several speakers took part in the debate,
among whom were Or. J, M. Smith, against,
and Mr. Q. Uhodes for tho Item, Whon put
to a volo it wan carried by a largo mujmiiy
33 ayu, IS uoes, U absent or undecided. We
look upon this as ouo of tho most damaging
items in tho Appropriation Bill Wo do not
lik the way iu which it is worded, but our
objections would be less if it were loft to tho
Privy Coutcil instead of tho Cabinet Council,
aud thos who supported It will yet have the

'I his "tom-foolory" has bocu tho laughing-stock of
tho bejt minded of onr pooplo now torn long timo,
nnd it hns beon ridiculed right and left; but if
thii iJ calculated to uionaco Iho poncefttl resident!)
of oilier nations, nnd expect they nro going to tit

Wcduosday'H Klele, ns will bo Heeu by referring
to tho "Nativol'rMa," Rivis n roHy acouut of tho
rapid nnd bcneficinl work of tho " honorable body
of our government," nnd doclarcH that nothing ot
a " wnntcf nl, greedy, plonndoring or thoughtless
spiint," has been brought forward in ;tho Iioubu.
It is dolightfnl to read such goody goody notices
of tho Legislature but the render of tho samo will
not ontcrtain a high opinion of tho writers' pcr
ceptivo faculties. It is uufortunato thnt tho
lindor from which wo nuolo whs marred by the
following truth : "It would nppenr according to
observation, thnt thh Legislature is determined
to graut such increased appropriations ns shall
satisfy theso petitions of tho citizens" which, it
sny3 in another place, nppear from every corner of
tho laud. Thoso who know tho insatiable nppotito
of tho Knwniinn petitioner will stand appalled at
this nuthoritativo (7) assertion.
Our Premier of State.
Ed. Satuiiday 1'hess: Allow me tho uso of your
columns to suggest a desorvod complimonl to our
Premier of Stnto for his emiucntly "economical
nnd judicious polioy" of expenditure. I notice
that your cotomporary, tho Gazelle, spoaks of him
ns tho Primate, tho chlof ecolcuiastio In a national
church. Undoubtedly, inoniories of the Mormon
Church of Latter-Day Saints still linger about His
Excellency, und it ii hard to dissociato thoughts
of tbo Great Aposlloof Mormonism to tbo Aminblo
and Boliivod ifawaiian People from tho profound
respect now felt for onr August Sovoroign's Prime
Ministorof Statu. But wo have bad no royal proe-
nation yet of tho establishment of any National
C .uich, nnd wo mnst regard it as a grammatical
o tvnorranUic.il blunder ot vonr esteemed co
il borntor, to speak of His Exculloucy ns if he were
ft 10 Hondo! tho Hawaiian Church ns woll ns tho
OjIoi Councillor of His Koynl Majesty; though,
djubtlise, our Premier considers himself abund
antly competent to fill tho offico ot Primate also.
Ab the Premier of the Hawaiian Ministry, he has
the important ofllco of keeper of tho King's Con
science, in accordance with that ancient logal no
tion hois so fond of quoting, "lbs King can do no
wrong." It is tbo Hawaiian Ministry, and not his
Mnjesty, who nro rc6ponsiblo for tho polioy of tho
Govornraont. In his official capacity, as head of
tho Cabinet, our worthy Premier is responsible for
the action of his coIIc.'iruch, and so has the credit
for tho various items of tho Appropriation Bill
recommondid by tho present Ministry. All who
romembor David Kalakaua, tho humblo Govern
ment clerk, frugal nnd temperato iu his habits,
must know that no restbetia crazo nor mania for
militarism has dictatod thoso items of expenditure,
for the Now Palace, Furnishtnc tho Palace, Coro
nation, UUlcial Kecoption of foreign DiguitarUs,
Armod Foico, Drill 8hod,-Equipmeut of Household
Troops, etc., etc. What but tbo splendid flnnuoinl
genius of our present Premier could havo fathered
thoho items m tho budget ? You have alroady
informed an admiring world how, ns tho shepherd
of Lanai, ho sold certificates of omcos in tho Groat
Mormon Church, and with tho proceeds, Hupplo
mentcd by contributions from tho faithful of tbo
Hock, uudortook to build up for tho Lnttor-Day
tiaints the Now Ziou iu Lanai. How similar tho
financial (iu.ilificationn dinlnved in thoso mom-
ornblo transactions of his early residence, and
this dazzling mrny of figures and titles in tho pros
out Ministerial budget ? Is it not too. too. ditto.
ditto ? Can our taxpayers possibly have too much
of this: "Tho New ralaco.'' "Pnloco." "Palace,1
nrn." "Pnlnrji" "Pnlnra."
necension to u sent iu tho Cabinet, should consout
to npponr and bo counted again: and that tbo
many admirers of our I'roraior's financial Renins,
unions our business men, should carry trimsparon
cIom illuminatiup; tho items so prominent tn the
budget, Now 1'alaco, 1'ornishinc 1'alaee, Coraplct
iiiK l'iilnce, Military Accoutrements, Military
l'.irado Ground, etc., etc IOt tho Beloved l'ooplo
see aud know "Utn what meat doth this our
Ciosnr feed, that ho has crown so great."

Libr Saturday evening on tho first appearance
of Prof. Zaraloch in the new Theater he waa
greeted by n hoate rilled from parquet to gallery,
and performed many feats of oouloring entirely
now to his audieucu. His first trick was with thu
viinUhiug hankorchief , which waa received with
npplnuse. Thu Jokes of the Professor and his
neatly tiecutul tricks kopt all present in the boat
ot humor. Tho moving of the water and gold tlth
from oue glru case iuto an empty one, wbllu thu
tuu were on opposiu sldoa ot tho stage, was good;
and tho tappings ot the drum, glaw bell and tabic,
wore moro in jsiliymg iuau mo rapping m puiiuai

of small reticules, playing cards, AiMf I douj, etc.,

mysterious trick wer performed with borrowed
proiHirty, 'X hu second imrt of tho programme waa

right elbow retted, while ub wu iu a reclining
position. A boon was pasted over her body to
thow that nu wilts bupportuj htr from tbov.
