Tho inserting of appropriation!! whose fulfilment
by thu Ministry h not eloar. and the necdlcm
Increase of appropriations which aro considered
tobonlroudy Hiitllcient is not nt all a Rood thing
in our judgment, and we presume in Unit of tho
people. A touiperato and proper use, mid tho
reduction of tho uxpenditures of the novel niiient
within its revenue, wo think is true ixditicnl
economy and true patriotism. Upon tho LcjmhI.i
turo will rest tho diiRr.icu, tho odium, and tho
wrath of this nation if thu Rovernment ahall be
dr.iwu into a heavy debt reietubllnsin its features
that which now bancs over Kypt. i'roper legis
lation, the temperate speiidiiiR of tho revenue,
and tho consideration of measures for repcupling
our land, theso aro what tho nation aro looking
to tho Lojjiidatuio for.
Is tho Hawaiian tuition a commercial people ?
This is a question which arises in our mlml when
over we cotusidor our mibstnnlinl condition of life
with loferenco to thu opportunities of education
wo have onjojed. Sixty jears have pau.ed in tho
ueneral prevalence of educational advantages in
Hawaii noi, but wo have not attained tho least bit
of this most valuable profession, that of tho mer
chant. Tho Rreater jiortion of this nation have
le irned writing, rending, teaching, Ical interpre
tatiou, debitiiiR, shocmakiiiR, tailoriiiR, and other
domestic occupitlons, tmt merchaiuliMUR, tli.it is,
the obtaining of property ill a wider way, wo have
not all attained. The only reason is this, waste
fulness, not tliinkiiuj that thu PcckniR of Rain is
a matter of toil, thu easy RoiiiR, lluxibledisiiositiou
of this nition, their RotthiR food without much
toil, their not RoiiiR nbroul hither and thither
over thu world, and above all other reasons, thu
too ejroat independence which this nation had
obtained or else perhaps tho undue fjratiheation
of de-ares whiuli they have enjoyed.

tho Rovermueiit, as to the internal iinpriiciuo:.t
which have been made, will return the interet of
money expended or a portion thereof, as to tho
proper in iiuleuinco of tho dignity of tho KiiiR, as
to education, the proper expenditures for tho-.ii
purposes aro appioved by all riRht thinkiiiR per
sons; but osiwiiditurea for meio show and for
useless pnrp.i-.ea ciiinot bo approved. And it is
thought that of this class is the coronation that is
proposed, and tho prep nations for war on tho mm
and on the land is much beyond wh.it is suitable
for proper employment. It should bo utmVistood
that in tho ilouliuf' of the Lieeihluturu with tho
money of the people, it is as if tho pioperty of
othois wcro pi iced in their hands for them to
expend in a judicious manner, and upon them
rest the responsibility furtliat work. All theso
moneys aru obtained from the ililferent kinds of
taxes and they havo been cheerfully ptid by
lospeet iblo people for suitable piuoses; but
whenever they p.hall be tixed for thiiiRS which
they c maiilor to bo useless, they will pivuuwill
iuuly, and if such a rourso bo noi-kisted in, tho
Roverumoiit will beooaie weak and trouble will
Evury ejoveriiiiiunt is htreme; accordiiiR to the
esteem of us citi.uus and of tiioso from whom it
uny leceivo aid. and it is weak according to tile
dUs itUfuetion of the citizens and their disesteem.
If so, then tho true wisdom of the representatives
and of the executive olBoers is to seek tho pioiwr
.ipprobition of tho citl.cu.s and of thosu who
dwell in the laud ; and tho best road to attain this
is not to impose heavy burdens t-uch as the tax
payers think aro not ri;ht. Tho groat majority of
tho tu-p lycra, in this matter under discussion,
mu forewnuis that is, their proport has been
ase-t.ed for tho larger part of the taxes which ale
appropriated forReiieral use. Hut they have no
vote lu tho Loyisl.iture, or elo they ale placed in
the minority. Uisliop, Wilder, IsenberR, Smith,
Kichirdsou, Kauhnuo, J'lliiio and ltico voted
ajj.iinst theapprupri'ltion foracoroiutiou. Aiiiour
those who wcru absent, Niwalilbid ipio..eil this
item, and if he had been there, doubtless he
would hive voted aR-iiust it. Tho law exempting
J J) of taxable property has Riven the voting
power to ii t.irito class of persons who havo no
ownership in the property which their represen
tatives suould bo a I ihi the more cautious about
imp vum: heavy burdens on others, in which those
vtio ohoaa them havo no shake. It is well enough
to expend freely our own money but when it is
itiveu to us to expend the money which is to bo
obtained from others, wo outfit to nick their
approval, ltherwiso they will havo Rood reason
to complain, for tho burdens which are imposed
up m the people aro sources of dilliculty mull
Rovurumeuts wlioio such things aru done.
Jf the KIiir desires to reiRii in the hearts of his
nation, if hu desiius to bind tho nation to him
with tho cords of love, if ho wishes to unite all,
both foreigners and Hawaiian! as one man in
their efforts for the stability of Ids uuveriuueut.
and to perpotuato the iudep.uidcncu of tho nation,
thou let him relnsa all that leads to
it lavish expenditure of tito revenue,
mid let him direct matters towaid imitahlu
expenditure ami toward such works as are worthy
of imitation, bo that he may bo called n father to
his nation. Ily rolum thus his Rovermueiit will
attain a dignity and utrenj-ili tar bev ond that of a
coronation anil of warlike preparations by laud
and by sua.
Thu Ia'Rislitit,e has beau const mtly petitioned
to reduce the taxes, but thu increase of expend!
tuiei is that which will Increase tho taxes. It is
rluht to uxp.'iid ttio rovenua prop.-rly, and to
lii;litun tliu taxes as far as consistent with tho
txnenditureii. It Is a suurcu of soilness to Hiohu
w o truly desire tho independence of the laud,
wheiithey Beo lurRo expoiiditurcii of money or
unprolit llilo thine, because no other cau to will so
hasten the overthrow of independence If taich u
course bj persisted in. Hut those who earnestly
desire to hvo our independence transferred under
tliu iowor of home nthir Rovermueiit, are the ones '
who rejoice in these thiiiRS, if there ara any such
persons here, l'erhups tho Iie(iluture wilt per- '
ceivu before it is too late, mid ho ciutious, and
direct its labors to those things which will truly
benefit the laud.

Rovernmeiit ricj steadily forward. The tnjular J
deliberations aro conducted with regard to nil I

ward for consideration soma new 1 iws, thu re)e.il '
of some old laws, and somo iiuiendmeiits to laws.

Iiersons who should properly bo exempt from tax
utlonaro undor consideration. And accordiiiR to
ourtcrutlny and our close observation and our
cei tain reinombranoo wo are able to declare thoro
has not been a single thiiiR broURht forward in
that House in n wasteful or ureedy or plundcriiiR,
or insiuo or tlioiiRhtloss spirit ; but each has been
broURlit forward iiecordhiR to tho belief of the
Member who introduced it that it was ripht nml
As to tho laws which have been proposed, wo
have no proof that a hIiirIo one has been proiwsed
from an evil minded or greedy motive. In the dis
cussions of tho Member, tho arRUinelits of those
on thu nlliriiintivo side have Leen approved, and
co also have been those an thu negative side: and
ahovo nil things it can bo hoisted that they have
been culled on in poacefulness mid a good spiiit.
In considering tho Apprpriation Hill tlu.ro lias
been much discussion between tliu members on
certain items. On noticing tho numenms petitions
which havo appealed from every corner of tho
land it is plain that tho larger portion or tho
objects which past Legislatures havo considered
nnd mudu nppropriatiotiH for, havo not been ear
ned out; and it would appoir ncoordiug to
observation, that this Lesislatnro is determined
to grant hitch increased abpropriations as shall
satisfy these petitions of the citizeiiH. And it
may bo relied upon as to the present Cabinet that
thoy will carry out the orders of the Legislature,
nnd that such puts of the welfare of tho welfare
of the nation and aUo of the Government as here
tofore have been poorly cared for, will be provi
ded for and seemed.
That source of greatest evil in years past, (he
IHiwer of transferring appropriation from ono
object to another lias btcn disowned by this
Cabinet. The wants nnd the distresses of tliu
citions are bjing remedied by tho Legislatuie.
The imposition of taxes of all holts is being ro
nrrniiRtd, nnd they will bo made to bear moio
ovuily uiwiii every one. The assessments will be
proierly made, and theio will be better facilities
It would appear that bcfoio long the work will
bo all douo and our Legislature will be dismissed,
this Legislature which is published abroad by thu
reviling ling as wasteful, greedy, extottionnte,
nnd insane. Hitter indeed is the wrath of certain
people. As biiteras if caused by tho bursting of
the pill. -
Commercial Travellers' License.
Eduoii SATUuinY I'r.Lss: Sir. Heports of the
Assembly state Mint n petition was presented by
Mr. Lilikalnni, "signiijjjy all tho meichaiits nnd
seveial of the retait"eluilers of Honolulu, that
commercial travelers dojng business in Honolulu
shall be obliged to,pyrt license of i."OI), and for

perhaps pfrsou'tod.-luusinuohjiius tho publication
thereof was thu iirt;intiiuation that somo mem

Tliat tliose who havojfivestod their nil in busi

hire, clc. aio eutitlid ft protection ngaiust the
llitting visits of commercial travelers or drumnieis
who do nothing toward the Rronth, or support of
tlie country, I think few will ilenv; but there nro
laws on our stitnte book that already cover tho
ground, if thu provisions are carried out.
It tan matter of legret that "Excelsior" in Inst
Wednesday's Gazette should endeavor to ntllx to
this effort of sulf-urotectiou as is done elsewheio
the stigma of its being ''aimed at lepreseiita
tivesof American mnuufiiotureni" in return for
"the treaty which tho United States Government
Ins so generously bestowed upon these islands."
I fail to see wherein the law uoultl apply with in
justice to Americans moro than to travelers from
other nations he refers to. This cropping up of
national jealousies on tiivial matters, ur where no
Riouud really exists, is most reprehensible.
