All matter for the Saturday Press should be

S IT CONSTITUTIONAL 1
In criticism); and condemning the King's in
terfcrcncc vsilh the administration of public
nfTairs in n.i)s uliicli wc did not bclice wi.rc
legitimate or proper, wc)iae taken this posi
tion tint such intcrfuuice was not merit)
officious and pirmcious intermeddling, but an
unjustifiable and unconstitutional proceeding.
The Constitution, for example, prouilcs, Art.
20, for three sceral depirtmcnts in the admin
istration of public afhirs. It docs not gn c the
supreme poncr into the hands of the Soxcreign
alone. The Kxccuthe, Legislative, and Judi
ciil Departments, it declares must be kept dis
tinct. It is only !) this rcgulited and balanced
exercise of the Sovereign power, as experience
has them, that civil government can be vvisel),
smoothlj , or successfully carried on
One cause of the present irritated state of
public sentiment is that tlu wholesome provi
sion of the Constitution has been set aside b)
the present Sovereign. The Constitution as
signs to the King the Executive power, but
limits this b) various provisions. Hefc the
head, but ought not therefore to assume all the
functions of the body politic. Is it constitu
tional for the King to interfere with the Judi
ciary, as was done at the last Legislature?
The right of suffrage, and so forth, of parti'
qipating in the administration of public affairs
is made bv the Constitution, Art. 12, to dc
pend upon certain qualifications of age, clmac
ter, intelligence and property. Ilut it is not
specified that the wishes of the King must be
consulted in voting for any candidate. David
Kalakaua used to be "an active politician,"
as that term is commonly understood. While
a cleik in a Government office, he was one of
"thcwoikcrs" in manipulating voters before
election. Now that lie has the vantage ground
of the highest position in the kingdom, he c-in
not forget his old practices, but must needs
make his Influence felt as a " politician " from
Island to Island, and especially here on Oahu
and in Honolulu. Whoever before saw such a
sight as a national army marched up in nuli
tiiy arra) to the polls undir orders to vote the
King's ticket ? To one Ministry after another
the King has pledged himself to refrain from
all interference with the voting at elections.
llut never were stories more rife in regard to
such inteifcrence than at the last election. Is
it constitutional to give out word that one set
of candidates U the King's ticket, or to give
rival candidate in the same district encourage
ment each to rely on rova! support, or to pay
the bill for liimor furnished to one of the
parties for electioneering purposes, and so on ;
Are these things constitutional ?
The Constitution provides, Alt. 4, that 110
money shall lie demanded from the cople, nor
taken from the public treasury, except In ac
curdance with some specific vote of the Leg!,'
lative Avscmbl). This monc) too, Is both
assessed as each cituen'9 "share of the expense'
of protection of life, liberty and property."
llut w ill the Planters Association agree that it
is constitutional, in accordance with this limit
atlon of public exvendiluies, to take from them
a part of their property for a junketing tour
around llie world, or a coronation carnival, or
nice douceurs to all the King's relatives and
dependents? What do the Hawaiian people
themselves say of the King personal sohcita

of the people a thing of nought by buying up
w ith blandishments and largesses the votes of
the representatives) Is thi Constitutional
Gov ernment ?
The Constitution provides, Art. 31, that "to
the King belongs the h'iccutive power. His
.Ministers are responsible;" and Alt, 42, "No
cl of the King shall have any effect unlcsit

" the Ministers arc rcponsiblc," has ceased to
have any force. The head of any department,
of the Interior Office, of the Post Office, of the
Custom House, who b) law is held "account
able for the conduct of their deputies and
clerks," and required to give bonds for the
faithful pcrformincc of their duties as well as
disown, mi) well claim his right to appoint
an and alt ofhis subordinates. Is it constitu

How can there be Constitutional Govern
ment in this Kingdom if the King is to Inter-fere-with
the Judiciar), the Legislative, and the
llureau of Administration? Some ma) remem
licr the hopes excited b) Kalakaua's words,
when, after the Moreno fiasco, the Ministers
gave a farewell banquet to the King before his
vo).agc round the world In search of a popula
tion of congeners. Let ui (urn to the Satur
iiav 1'riss of Jan. 15, 1SS1, and read the
M)al utterances, which were then supposed to
indicate a new era of good bchaviot and a
purivose to let government go on without an)
more meddling. Kalakaua evident) knew
what responsible government was when he said
"Having appointed my sister as Ucgcnt du
ring 111) absence, and placed with her (not
under her) a responsible Ministr), I have
hope that the Gov ernment of the Uegenc) will
be administered with full confidence and satis
faction to the nation. Wc must work in liar
mon) under the Constitution and laws, and I
rccognic cheerful I) the fact lhat Hawaii, as one
of ihe fanul) of nations, must be governed in
accordance with the ideas which control Con
slitutional governments." Is it ideas, the
ideas of intelligence, ofeconom), of probity,
that control this Hawaiian Government, or is
it Kalakaua's whiinsand notions? Which shall
prevail? Is the government, asat present nd
ministered, a constitutional government ?
The people arc to be satisfied, as well as the
King, if a constitutional government is to be
properly administered. Kalakaua knew there
were good reasons why the people had not been
satisfied, for he proceeded to sa), "If there
have been mistakes in the past, let us profit b)
the lesson of experience, and with honesty of
purpose let us press on to a future which I
trust mi) be bright with prosperit) and hope
fulness." Is constitutional government stron
ger or weaker for those promises of the King
two )cars ago, and the experiences of the last
half-year? Do wc not need some stronger
guaranty against practical subversion of the
Constitution than words about constitional
" 1 hat rnlter with us in a double sense 1
That keep the word of promise 10 our ear,
And brake 11 to our hope."
The intelligence, honor, and wealth of this
communit), need and should hav c a constitu
lional government, administered for the public
good, not for the King's greed. The people
expect and they have a right to demand it. Is
In the '. C. A. of last week was an article
upon "constitutionalism," which, because of
the semi official character of that journal and
not because of anything intrinsically important
in the article itself, calls for more than the
passing attention w hich was given to it in our
issue of the ifith instant. The known connec
tion of the Premier with that paper and his es
tablished identil) with the progress of royal
folly, supplies a clue by which to estimate the
dogged determination which seems to have
seized uon King Kalakaua, to ignore the voice
of the people so loudly expressed in favor of re
form. It is in the character of a rojal herald
that the writer of the article in question w ould
have the community receive linn, and his utter'
ances clearl) convey the impression that the)
are not ski gtntris, but inspired. Wc no longer
recognize the ministr) as responsible in the
usual and constitutional acceptation of that
word, however responsible they may be moral
1), as the precursors of evil to the country.
Irom the people of whatsoever nationality, they
have no support, and a petition for their re
moval, if circulated tomorrow, would be as
largely subscribed to b) lioth the native and
foreign population, as that which during the
reign of Kaiiiehameha III secured the change
of Cabinet then desired.
When the cabinet officers are held in office,
in impudent defiance of the expressed disap
proval of ihe population at large, to whom but
the power whence their appointments emanate
are we to look as in reality responsible for their
retention in office? and have wc not a right to
interpret the opinion of a publication owned
b) the King's Premier, and conducted to suit
him who seems to suit the King in a measure
as represcnlativ e of the King? opinions regard
ing his own prerogative? At leivst, the affirm
alive of our proposition U the opinion which is
largely shared by the thinking portion of our
community. Then, are we given to understand
of the King, It is his right to lierome an "active
politician," and to use !1 the Influence he
possesses to induce legislators to favor mea'
snres which he himself approves, and to secure
the return to the Legislature of men whose
ideas coincide with his own. Could we ask for
a more forcible corroboration of the allega
tions made by this journal, as to the tendency
evinced by the crown to transcend Us constitu
tional pierogative, than is here gratuitously of
fered b) a subsidized exponent of the adminis
tration, and the henchman of their cause?
"Out of thy own mouth shalt thou bu con
demned'fiir the written constitution expressly
provides that the administration of the govern
ment shall be "divided Into the executive,
legislative, and judicial,' and also provides
that thev shall alwa)s be distinct, In what
sense then is It possible for the King, who is
the head of the executive, to become an "ac
live politician" and meddle with (he legislature,
except in violation of a constitutional pro
vision, so plain and unambiguous that he who
runs may read. We are asked not to strain
our vision in seeking for a companion, "across
(wo oceans and a continent; and are informed
that one more apposite may lie found nearer
home; that the stumping of America, by the
cabinet of President H)cs, in favor of the Ke
publican party, And the exercise of Ihe personal
influence of the President himself in llut be
half, forms a sufficient precedent to establish
the light of King Kalakaua and his cabinet to
do likewise, In behalf of no party recognized
as existing; but in behalf cf a party which the
King and his advisers propoae to (rtatt. To t
tempt to fit such a piccedtnt to out paiticubur
cae I to expose a lamentable degree of igno
ranee, in matters pertaining lo American his
lory, and the fund1mcnt.1l law of this land, or
to willfully ignore the most elementar) pnnci
pics of logic
Hut the very acme of absurdity is
is reached when the question is asked! "What
is the headship of a constitutional monarchy
but a life presidency of a republic?" huch a
question Involves a contraction of terms; an
intrinsic absence of comparable elements,
which would render any attempt to answer it
as ridiculous as the question itself. It would
not le more logically absurd to aski What is
an elephant hut a bear with a trunk? It is
plain, however, that the action of President
Ha)s and his cabinet referred to, can have no
rational bearing as a precedent in our case,
inasmuch as the conditions under' which the re
spective governments of the two countries are
conducted, have little in common Where, for
instance, is Ihe comparison between a mon
arch whose term of office is for life, whose
title and functions ma) descend as property to
his heirs or assigns provided otilj that the)
be not totall) fatuous, idiotic, or infamous!)
criminal; and a president whose term of office
extends on!) for the brief period of four )cars;
whose mtntat tafvaly auJ moial rhaixkttr
must correspond with such a standard as will
command the respect and approbation of a
majorit) of the whole people. Where the
comparison between a man not amenable to
law, and whose removal from office can only
be effected by his own vohintar) abdication or
b) revolution, and a man subject to removal
on Impeachment, for malversation of office?
Where the comparison between the head of a
nation who miy exercise his own pleasure in
choking down b) an absolute veto the unani
mous voice of a legislature; who may prorogue,
disband, or assemble them together at will;
and the head of a nation who is privileged onl)
to exercise his vetoing power in subordination
to a two thirds majority of a congress, .and who
cm exercise no control over the date or con
tinuance of its sessions? And lastly , where the
comparison between a president, whose duties
.arc sufficientl) important to require the legal
restriction, that he sta) in the country to at
tend to them, and n king that is privileged lo
roam alxiut the world at his pleasure, and then
to ask his subjects to defray the expense, not
only ofhis vo).ages, but the inflated notions of
self he may have acquired b) the way? Trul)
there is no comparison; and if wisdom be not
stifled in the councils of this nation, our prece
dents for the conduct of ro) nit) will more natu
rally be sought for "across twooccans and a
continent," where the sovereign is wise enough
to be content at being "a cog in the mechan
ism" mid abstains from any attempt to become
the driving wheel. George III made such an
attempt, and the results of his experiment
should be studied b) such as would repeat
" ADVICES FROM I10N0L UL U."
If the general public and the citizens of the
United Stales of America in particular arc
desirous of hearing an) thing concerning Ha
waiian affairs, it is natural to suppose tint the)
desire to hear the truth, the whole truth, and
nothing but the truth. Wc were not .aware,
until recently, that official reports were being
sent to the Coast from this kingdom ; rejwrls
favorable to the Government and the Min
istry, and unfavorable to all those who arc not
111 absolute sympathy with the Ministry more
especially the present Ministry. It is true wc
have suspected it ; no one who has taken the
trouble to read the "advices from Honolulu,"
as they appear in the California journals and
has observed the tenor of those advices can
have failed to note that in color and creed they
arc one with the sentiments of the Premier.
We were not aware, until recently, that the
Premier has the confidence of the associated
press ; that even the highly respectable Bulle
tin accepts his statements without question ;
lhat the Commit rial lit) aid ami Market lit
new does not care to verify these statements
before publishing them to the world ; tint the
Sacramento Union is hood-w inked ; and that
Ihe Altazs for the Alia, tint old lady has
believed blind!) ever since her two eyes were
first opeped, if indeed they were ever opened.
The "advices from Honolulu," bearing
date of August 22, that appear in the BnlUtin,
Alia, Sacramento Union and Commercial He
lalJ arc one and the same, line for line and
word for word, almost throughout, and they
must have emanated from a single source.
These "advices" sa) "The new Amer
ican Minister, Daggett, was received by trie
King and feted by societ). He will likely
become popular in the islands."
May we be permuted to ask if the Amer
ican residents are prepared to accept Ihe
last line of this statement as a literal fact ?
These "advices" say "The Gibson Min
istry is already realizing on the loan. About
half a million dollars of the loan will be taken
in ihe islands ; the remainder, a million and a
half, will find takers in San Francisco."
Is this a fact ? lly any stretch of the imagin
ation can it be called in the slightest degree a
" The Gibson Ministry," they say, is getting
along smoothly. If spirited and continuous
opposition form ninety-nine out of every hun
dred Individuals native and foreign, on the
island, is "getting along smoothly," the state
ment is correct.
These "advices "say "The new Ministry
U assailed very sharply by political malcon
tents, through the opposition press, especially
Premier Gibson. The hostility against him by
the clique is very strong, but he apparently
has the dominant national independent party
at his lack."
Does the intelligent reader begin to sec a
clue to the authorship of the "advices J" We
would respectfully call attention to the epithet
political matcontcntt, and ask if the readers of
the Commercial Advertiser ever met with It in
the columns of that journal?
These "advices" say "A small clique of
American politicians residing here have been
attempting lo get up a political excitement by
discussing annexation. The effect is to unite
all the natives and other foreigners as a deter
mined national independent parly. The clique
got up a torchlight procession to welcome
Daggett, who acts very judiciously, wins good
opinions from all, and offers no encourage
ment to any political sentiment."
If any further evidences is necessary to prove
lhat the " advices from Honolulu " as they are
now simultaneously appearing in the linlletm,
Alia, Sacramento Union and Commercial He
raid arc written by one hand and that one a
hand employed In the office of lh Commercial
Adxtrtiter, our readers will probably find it
in future installments of ihe "advices" as they
appear from month to month in the above
What we would like tn know is, who subsii
dizes the California press, and whcie does
the money originally come from ? Possibly the
museum appropriation which is already ex
hausted with nothing tu show for it may
have been disseminated bc)ond the sea. Cer
tainly the "advices from Honolulu," now run
ning serially In several journals at the Coast,

Miseries of the Serfs on the Sugar Plantations
A Gloom) Picture of Wretched Men What
an Impartial Observer relates of the hard
ships endured b) I-aborers in Hawaii 1" etc.
How well we remember the Impartial Ob
server alwve referred to 1 He was tall; vcr)
tall; awfully tall I There was something wrong
about him, but just what that something was
it were difficult to state. The head was too
small for the body, or the heart was loo large
for the trunk, or the legs were too long, or the
memory itr short; nt an) rate he didn't seem
like any other man but like Individual portions
of several men swept up and patched together,
and this creation Is known In Ihe Chronicle
office ns an lmpirlial Observer.
He never did anything but smile; may not
have been obliged to do anything but smile;
this was his affair. Yet, stay 1 1 here was one
thing he did and he did it w ith a v engeance; he
sought introductions, he even demanded, llicni,
and when this filled linn he was wont to step
up like .1 little man and introduce himself.
This sort of thing would have looked like
"check " In any one ctsc; it would have been
called "brass" or "impudence" in any one
else; but the Impartial Olxervcr is a rare bird,
and is not to be judged by the laws that govern

asking questions, forcvcr.an ImpartialObscrvcr
gels his data at second hand and in his pursuit of
knowledge under the dfficullies that ate like!)
to beset his path in this kingdom, fie must ask
a few questions now and again.
Oh, jes I And then he went to Hawaii and
stemmed (he gor) tide of life on a Migar plan
tation. He became a lima', it must be that
he became a lima for the purtsosc of more im
partial observation; nt all events he became
one, and drove his men into the field. Having
called the miserable creatures about him, he
said unto one do this, and lo another do that,
and forthwith he opened a Japanese parasol and
la) down under a palm tree to read. He could
not bear to sec those serfs toiling in the rain,
anil the sun, and the bottomless quagmire; it
was as much as he could do to draw his salary
without paralyzing his conscience. It was hot
ter than tophet; the white slaves from the- far
north were gradually inciting and running
down like rivulets into the mire; bitter blasts
blew from Ihe snowy summits of Mauna Kea
and froze the South Sea Islanders in their
track. This was worse than slavery in the
ante Icllnm days; this was quite too niuch;2so
the Impartial Observer readjusted the parasol,
turned over on the other side, for he was high
and dry, and opening a volume he read sadl)
under the palms.'
Under the palms I The lmss overseer pai,ed
thatvva); the sun had gone down into the
deep sea; the pathetic after-glow was d)ing
out of the west; the serfs hail evidently re
paired to their miserable quarters, for it was
supper time and now they were compelled lo
stop toiling; but the Impartial Observer slept
the sleep of conscious innocence; a centipede
kindly kept the place in his liook for him and
the sprightly spider had spun a giuy veil over
the rim of the parasol, an exquisite web that
sheltered the beautiful dreamer from the cool
dew that was gathering under the palms.
He left very shortly nfler that experience;
the heartless manager of Ihe plantation did not
care for a reader; the "miseries of the serfs"
were in no wise ameliorated by the presence of
nn Impirtral Observer with a literary turn; the
light ofhis countenance did not soften the
"gloomy picture." A little while they saw
him coiled under the wcinl palm tree, impar
tial and observing to the last; a little while
anil they saw him no more forever.
lie folded his parasol; repaired to the me
tropolis; took a few brief turns in the gay
waltz at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel; listened,
longitudinally, to the matinee concerts in
L'mnn Square, and then faded nwa) in the di
rection of the coast.
No one seemed to know just when, or why,
or how, he came to the end; no one seemed lo
care. It was his business; it begins to look as
if ever) bod)' business was his business; and
now, now, because between the parasol, the
palm tree and polise literature he fell into dis
credit, he takes sweet revenge b) gratuitously
contributing his mite toward flooding the sew
erage in the Chronicle office.
