N'o Aiibjccl is of grcator impoitauco to tho
planter, at present, than (hat of labor supply.
Largo crops have beon harvested tho past
season, which Mn many ensen occupied moro
lime than usual, white the large area planted
last ycur demands attention. It is also desira
ble that this season's planting should nl least
equal that of tant yoar. Thcno conditions
havo demanded, and still domain), larger
forces of luborora than usual, but tho supply
from abroad during tho past year has fallen
far short nl tho requirements, nud moreover
tho contracts of Inrgo numbers previously pro
cured havn cxpirod, and a still groator nutubor
will oxpire during tho noxt six months. Many
of tho plnutors, after sovcro struggles with
tho numberless obstacles in tho way of suc
cess, nro etuorging fiom their diOlciillics, mid
with a sufficient supply of labor thoy would
havo been able, during tho two coming har
vests, to rccoivo a mcasuro of rowaid for their
porsovoranco and industry. Out without tho
requisite supply of laborers thoy will not bo
able to properly caro for tho growing crops,
nor put in tlio necessary planting for tho fol
At tho plnntorn mooting last March, this
question of labor supply was tho paramount
tine over all othors. Many possiblo sources of
Mtipply woro di-cusecd; tried and untiicd
fields woro considered; information sought ;
and suggestions, theories, queries and plans
in variety weie presented. Tho matter was
trcatod in a manner which unmistakably indi
cated its absorbing Importance. Tho icimirks
and bearing of iniuiy of thoso hard worked,
enduring men, showed that they woro terribly
in oarnest. After providing necessary means
for making experiments, and relying on tho
Portngucso immigration already established
and in successful operation thoy returned to
ilioir homes with brightor hopes for the futuie.
Former administrations had mado faithful
effoits in attempts to introduce immigrants,
of which tho Portugueso suhome proved tho
most satisfactory, both as laborers and for
population. Tho oxpeneo of bringing them
hurt boon largo, but this 'was woll known, and
was not of btiffiuieiit moment to dotcr applica
tions as those filed with ktbo Board of Immi
gration will show.
lit tho light of theso facts, nothing but con
demnation of the sovercst kind could follow
the announcement that tho Gibson Ministry
had lorwardetl ordors to atop tho immigration.
Tlio fact iu itself was sufficient to procuro
profound apprehensions, bat tho subsequent
dovolopoments as to the hasty nod socrot man
ner iu which tho Government had takon tho'
action and dispatched the instructions, caused
cursos to bo hcapod on tho authors of it. That
men intrusted with tho direction of tho affahs
of the country, and who should havo tho inter
ests of tlio peoplo at heart could deal such a
blow at tho host intorcsts of tho country seenm
inexcusable. Many waited to loam if thoro
wcro any adequate reasonH for thocourso pur
sued, but tho only reason ho far given is their
cost, which tho Ministry state is oxcesaivo, to
support which Mr. Gibson proaonted an ex
hibit to the Legislature of tho cost of those
brought hero by tho Monarch, Tho truth of
this can bo judgod of when tho fact is shown
that tho cost of tho lot by the -UbinrcA waa
not known to (ho Board of Immigration until
somctimo after tlio instructions had been bent.
But even if it had boon known, what justifica
tion is thcro for their uctinn when, as already
shown, tho applications, without regard to
cost, woro largoly in oxcoss of tho numbers
reported to bo ou route.
Whether the true reason was the personal
spitoof individual members of tho Oubinot
tnwaid the representative scut by tlio forinor
Ministry, or somo intended snub aimed at tlio
Plunlors' Company, or a more wanton asser
tion of power, the result is (ho samo. Plan
tations are crippled and the Govornmont bus
willfully wronged and injured tlio best friends
of the country. Doop fouling and strong
langungo aro justifiublo In this mattor. Many
follies nnd excesses may bo ovorluokud, but
unwarranted and wido spread dumogo of this
imtnro will produce rosnlts which neither the
.Ministry nor the King can now prevent. It is
of no avail for Mr. Gibson to say (hat tho
interruption of tho immigration of Portugueso
is only (etnporary. If even so, at this junct
ure the damage will bo dono before immigra
tion can bo again established, and no one
knows how permanent the Interruption may
bo. It was intorrupted last year, and only by
prompt and active muasurea was It ro-estat-lishcd.
All civilized countries watch ciiiigraHon
from its borders witli jealousy ; and now nftor
all (ho assurances of tho past year, who cun
tell what effect this pre-emptory oidor may
have on tho Portuguese Government.
Of all tho wasteful extravagances) udvocatcd
by tho" present Ministry, not tho smallest is
Ihe project for the coronation ceremony. Among
the other ways and moans contrived for sqiian.
dcring funds in commotion with (his needless
piece of ostentation, nono is more unjustifiable,
not to say illegal and Improper, than tho pro.
joct of convening the Legislature iu an oxlra
session. Mhat legislation is needful that tho j
Xoblcs aud Representatives should bo ussom- '
ble.1, and what other reason than tho need 0?
otuo legislative action cau legally bo tho oo-
casiontor convoning tlio Legislature? If tho
Members arejoo poor to pay (heir (raveling
expend qrtc?put in an appearance in suitublo
dnss, (hero is surely money enouglj at (ho
King's command to secure their attendance If
desired, iu a body, in'. proper way, without
this extra cuyjLutlonal-If not unconstilu-(lonal-metbrf
callinc uu extra session.
But the worA' Winn of the project is also the J
most illcgitl mil m.,t indefensible, that the
Members tlinuM reeettc t'io umomed allow
ance voted st the seMlnti juat closed. Will
the new Anditor-Oeiioral endorse as legal and
proper the m.vtnent r.f $600 to entli Member
of the Legisliimru fnr this perfiinctioimry and
omamciiial wrvue? Will the tiapbyers con
sent to this bmiscIcM and out in goo us waste of
public money ? If this watn U insisted on, a
Taxpayers' Assneliiiioii ll bo In order to de.
fend their rights ami brinK thin matter Into the
courts, securing an Injunction lo stop this fraud
ulent nbuse of public trust. The law is ex
plicit iu this unitler, mid by no pnssiblo chi
canery onn it be Cdtmiriioil tn nlhiw either (ho
convening of the Legislature fur mere trivial
roaBiins or paying lo a Legislature chosen for

has also been purposely nmiltcd.
Iu tlio Legislature of 1880, when Hon. 8. G.
Wilder was thqu Minister ol the Interior, in
reply to 0 qijeatloii from it Member of tho
Ilouso, ho stated that 1I10 fc'eo.000 then naked
would bo amply nilffielcnt lot-nmplcto llio Now

knowledge or what lie wus saying, Hut since
(lion, hnw over, It lmo been deeincd oxpedionl,
in addition therein, to exuoud the sum of
$210,100 07, nn aggregate of nums tr.msloired,
iu most fnswncce, from appropriations far f."j
tary objectH, rnnijnihing public inipruvcmeiit,
repairs of public works, wuter supply, and
tt,ihe public f,Mlth. Now, tlio ch'jrue(cr of
our Leginluiuie, ami by what motives thoy
are governed, may bo seen from tho fact, that
whilo n great hue nnd cry was being mado
against ihe fuithleimucis nf Ministers iu trans.
ferring ccrlniii appropriations, amounting in
all to leas than SlOO.OtO, lo purposes of imml.
gratlon, not n word ws hcartl of the $210,

and any sum, however exaibllant in amount or
preposterous in nnturo, su long as soma one
could suggest the rcniaicst-reliiliou Lclween it
and tho Ilnynl pleasure, wuuhl be voted ul
mtat without discussion N't tho least among
tlie.e, in amount or.d porlirnl, are tho ap
propriations for miliury purposes- And
what object i "II ihls parudo nf ordnaiico

fur- the mere gratification of 0, vain desire
-for show and oicuu(ioii j rr is it designed Iu
remind people who, bcgipulug tn feel the
cfi'ects cf t'xira tiTxatloii, are went to speak
their objections against scmiclcsB cxtrava
ganco, that nil army is thoro to back it?
Xcilhcr explanation will either satisfy or quell
tho objection, and tho calls for reform mutt
grow moro earnest and sustained until It shnll
havo boon accomplished. A ponplo may long
rctnuin pnssivo while tho Government funds
aro misappropriated, provided that the ex
penditure is not In excess of tho rovonues;
but whon oxlra taxation and national dobt are
tnndo necessary for tho sustonanco of foolery
which is iniatiablt, It will bo qulto another
affair, Tho blarney ot unprincipled Miutators
may hoodwink a community for a time j but
they, like others, may ovcrrato tho capacity
of the public stomach for tlio reception of the
kind of moult thoy olono aro ablo to supply.
There Is no intelligent nntivo or foreigner, but
knows Unit tho revenues or this country
nro more than sufficient to pay tho current
expenses of any well ordered Gnvornmcnt j
that it Is only willful cxtravngnnco In unno
ceesury ami unworthy objects that can mako
tho negotiation of loans it necessity j such also
know that loans moan debt, and debt, oxtra
taxation ; nud thoy havo ovory reason lo ex
pect Hint foolery of 0110 kind or nnothor will
become rampant in proportion lo tho menus
supplied. Tlioir legislators have, ono after
another, succumbed to iiilhtoneo boymid their
control, until "n prostitute majority hold tho
bolt of parliamentary power" and use that
power tu fatten thcmsolvcM nud tlioir patrons
ut tho oxpcnio of tlioir doltidcd cotutituotits.
And now, nro tho pooplo lo bo taxod again
to tho amount of thirty thousand dollars, for
nu unnecessary rc-assombllng of tho Legisla
ture in the early part of noxt year in ordor
that thoy may bo rownrded for their liboralty
in disposing of tho public funds and legalizing
the extra pay, which thoy TougH against the
Constitution to obtain V And shall this be got
under a Constitution tli.it provides for oxtra
sceoions only in " groat emergencies," as war,
