THE POLITICAL SITUATION
San i'rancuco, Novcmlcr g, 1881.
Politic me certainty siry'muclt mlsctl this
year thtmiRlioiit the Unitcil State, at the re
cenlclcction plainly indicate. The lite elec
tion In Ohio was my koI indication that
K)litlc ami tcmcrancc arc elements that
can ncicr.afliliale, hence the insanity of the
proltiliitlon'mmcriicnt in our own State'cam
tMiRn.'? The Krinilitican leaden In Ohio, in-
clii(liiiR(;ocrnor 1'mtcr, mule a fatal mistake
in anlaciinlring the foreign clement., partial
larly the German, hy advocating tcstrlcthe
measures, uhllc tome of the more fanatical of
the slump oratoMttenl o far at to advocate
total prohililtion. Any one professing to be
gifted with common sense, who knows any
thing about the composition of the various
clcmcnti of the lluckc)c State will ailmit that
neither restriction nor prohibition can l suc
cessfully carrleil out. .The Republican of
Ohio liaie now found ihii out, to their bitter
sorrow, for thcylme not only lost a nttmlier
of the State office, but pacd the way for the
Democrat to secure thc'.clcctlon of a majorit)
of the Congressional rcprcscntatiic, thut giv
ing them the encouraging feeling that they
will control the next Congrc.
In l'ciins)lanl.i the warfare wa a very bit
ter one among the Republican., as wa shown
by the opMsing faction of the party having
two candidates In the field C.cncral Heaver,
the regular nominee, and Senator Stewart, ns
the Independent. Tor jcar the Republican
party of IVnnUanla has been manipulated
i.j it, v m........... , n... 17 nimcan Cameron,
and since his retirement from the United State
Senate, by his son Donald, who succeeded hi
cnerable parint as Senator in 1879. The
Cameron have made jxilitics in that State rot
ten, and the Republican who despise Ikk.Isiii
and Its pernicious and degrading Influence
Imc made an effectual attempt to purify the
parly by mcrthrowing and destro)ing Camcr
onism, a the result of the election in that
State shows the thoroughness of their deter
mination, though it Insured the election of the
Democratic candidate for gocrnor, Mr. I'atti
son, who is only JI )cars of age, and Is now
occuming his second term as Controller of
Philadelphia. The Republican party of l'cnn
s)lvania will, undoubtedly, lc all the stronger
after the destruction of Cameralism, and in
the presidential )car, 1S34, may hacan oppor
tunily to redeem itself, as the Republicans have
a majority in the State, when an undivided
vote is polled, of no less than 23,000. Al
though the fight was bitter, the result was a
foregone conclusion, as far as the State ticket
New York politics base liecn cpiite as much
mixed as those in the Keystone State. The
Republican wire-pullers and office-holders,
backed and manipulated by Chester A. Ar
thur, the accidental President of the United
State, placed in the field for governor Judge
I'olgir, the present Secretary of the Treasury,
who is crsonally a very good man, but un
fortunately for his aspirations, the mode and
manner of his nomination over Governor Cor
nell, the present incumbent, made his success
doubtful from the first, and, as there was no in
dependent candidate in opposition, a large
numlier of Republicans refrained from voting
rather than vote for the Democratic nominee,
Mr. Cleveland, the present Ma)orof HulTalo.
Another fact that went far to insure a Demo
cratic success was, that the Tammany and
Irving Hall factions temporarily buried the
hatchet and were united in their support of
the State ticket. This is really a big feather
in the cap of the Tammany chief, John Kelly,
who is the leader of the riff-raff element of the
New York democracy, while Irving Hall is
controlled by, and run in the interest of that
drieibup specimen of humanity known as
Samuel J. Tildcn, who cnjo)s the political
alias of Slippery Sam. The Irving Hall cle
ment is composed of the aristocratic portion of
the party, including epiite a number of mil
lionaires, who arc as well known in Kurope,
from their periodical residence and nssiciation
abroad, as they arc in the United States. This
union of such extremely opposite factions can
not last, however, as there is naturally a lack
of affinity between them, and a split is there
fore inevitable when the time approaches for
the distribution of patronage. The rapacity
of the Tammany clique is historic, and when
ever there is a chance for plunder it wants the
whole hog or none. It is safe to predict,
whin the past is taken into consideration, that
the two factions will Ik- at war with each other
long liefore the opening of (he Democratic
National Convention in 1S44, especially if, by
divine disciisation, it should come to pass
that Slippery Sam, of cipher fame, should 1
!crmilted to enjoy an existence that long,
though such a probability appears extremely
doubtful just now, judging by the latest reports
as to the physical and mental condition of this
fossilired specimen of anatomy.
The Southern States, of course, have gone
democratic, although substantial Republican
gains were looked for, especially In the number
of Congressional representatives, as a strong
and promising fight had been made on the
tariff question. It is a notorious fact that the
leaders of the Democratic party have been, for
over fifty years, heart and soul devoted to free
trade. Since the close of the rebellion the
Southern eoplc have become devoted to in
dustry, and are making rapid strides toward
prosperity, not forgetting the fact that much of
it It due to the protective policy so succssfully
carried out i!y the Republican urty, which
has, in reality, U-cn the salvation of the South.
In spite of these trmxrary reverses as the
sam thing occurred In 1S74 there is every
reason lo supjxisc that n 1884 thcro will he no
such thing at "Solid South," and less as
surance for Democratic supremacy, even than In
1876, when Tildcn was the opponent of IIa)cs,
and when all sorts of depredations on the
lullot-lrax were committed, necessitating the
creation ol the famous electoral commission.
in raci, me creation 01 tnis commission was
due to Democratic statesmanship, but for all
thai the w tseacres of the party were foiled in
their designs, and the cight-to-scven result can
nevei be forgotten by the Democratic leaders
It was this commission tlial awarded the presi
dency to llaes and brought down uKn its
venerable head the execration of a united
democracy! out the Hfcoaitv of a commission
of this character may not occur again In fifty
In the light of icevnt events both political
and olherw I e, it it difficult to predict w hethcr,
in fifty tears hence, there will lie a vestige left
of the present national organisations, as the
troubles between the corporations and the jxo.
pie are of such a character and Iiniwrtance
that, if the two lurtirs do not adjust matters in
time, a people' party will certainly spring up
and become a power In the land. lien but
ler's successful struggle for the governorship of
Massachusetts, on the fusion ticket, is on indi
"ration of this The causes that made the
South defiant and rebellious nude the Repub
lican patty In the north and in all of the free
States a mighty power for twenty years, and
there is no telling what will be the result of the
warfare between capital and labor. Il U no
torious that capital has transcended the power
ud tight guaranteed it by the Ameiicaii re-
public, and, at Abraham Lincoln expressed it
"this is a government by the people, for tlv
people and of the people." It rests with

by the framers of the constitution, not Cordite

lution. The lalror organizations throughout
the land arc not coinxcd of idiots, but the
brain, sinew arid muscle of a mighty republic,
and which will, In the course of time, cer
tainly force the solution of a great problem.
In alluding to political matter generally, I
must not overlook the contcstin this State.
The poople l.'re arc thoroughly disgusted with
the Intolerance of-the Central Pacific Railroad
monoioly, which has corrupted the (Kilitlcs of
this Stale ever since the cnriiration ha been
In existence. Hut how the (icoplc intend to re
buke Ihit powerful monoH)ly it not epiite ap
parent just now, inasmuch as Stoncman, the
Democratic governor-elect, it a creature of Ihc
railroad corKiralion, so the Examiner, at the
organ of the parly, asserted two dijs after his
nomination nt San Jose, while smarting under
the defeat of its own choice for the gulietm
lorial honort in the person of George Ilcartl,
who It a heavy stockholder in the Examiner;
)ct the Democratic party of California were In
high glee over hit nomination. The riff-raff
clement that made Denis Kearney the sand-lot
dictator and howled Itself hoarse with anti
monopoly music for Ihc past tears, Is the main
element thai wat relied cm todnsurc Stone
man's "election, and one may well exclaim,
"Oh, consistency, thou art a Jewell" Stone
man recently mule a weak campaign speech at
w.u.j., -f... ...Ik. r r..-,.i:..u silence, in
which he said Il1.1t t lie )wo vital issues at
stake were the Sunday law and the Chinese
question, and totally ignoring the fact that the
people were overweighted by corioration op
pression and praving for deliverance. Willi
lit Ihc Chinese question i really settled for ten
J cars at least, in spite of Assistant Secretary
French's peculiar opinion on the subject, as re
cently expressed for the benefit of the collector
of this Krt, which it a Hat contradiction of the
intcnlt of the law that is now in operation,
and the Sunday law bugbear it only a matter
of secondary consideration. Stoncman's susV
picious attitude on this important point is in
glaring conflict )o the well-known sentiments
of Morris M. Kstce, the Republican candidate
for goscrnor, who hat been particularly out
sxken on the subject of railroad oppression
and extortion. The rabid attitude of the
Chroniele In the campaign, while professing
the utmost loyalty )o Republican principles,
had a tendency lo defeat the parly. Paul
Neumann, the Republican candidate for Con
gress in Ibis tlistrict, met with the most bitter
opposition from the Chronicle, which stjltd
him the lool of Claut Spreckcls in the Ha
waiian sugar interest, and also accused him of
licing under the control of the railroad com
pany. Hy way of showing its peculiar
sympathy for the Republican party and the
ticket, Ihc Chi oniric advocated the election of
a Democratic Congressman in the person of
General Roscncrans, whom it denounced in
unmeasured terms two years ago. Dr. Mc
Donald, of Vinegar Hitters notoriety, was the
candidate for governor on the IVohibition
ticket, but without gaining any special recog
nition even from the demagogues, he only suc
ceeded in jeopardising the chances of Cstcc's
election, as he failed to draw any votes away
from the Democratic ticket.
As it is now a settled fact that the Demo
crats will control the next House of Represen
tatives, ihc country will closely watch the ac
tion of the leaders of the parly on the tariff
question. The tariff commission appointed
last winter to take testimony in the various
cities of the United States, touching the re
vision of the tariff, will make its report either
at the close of the present Congress, which
is Republican, or at the licginning of the next
Congress, which will be Democratic. As the
present Congress does not expire until March
4, 1SS3, il is more than probable that the tariff
commission will present its rcxrt in Decem
ber, and even in doing so, it is a question
whether proer legislation can be effected l
fore the 4th of next March. According to
tradition, much optmsition can be expected
from the Democratic leaders in the revision of
the tariff; and should it so happen that the
tariff question is not tinkered to suit the ideas
of the Democratic leaders, lucked by the
foreign capitalists of New York, then the
question will be rcoticned during the new Con
grew, when the Democrats will have full swing
to do as they please, and probably repeat the
blunders made in 1844, which arc part and
parcel of Democratic history. The free trade
craze in 1844 is distinct in the memory of all
who have interested themselves in politics as far
back at 1S42. It will lie remembered that
James K. Polk was elected in 1843, on tin
Democratic war-cry of "Polk, Dallas and thi
Tariff of '42." The subsequent action. of the
Democratic party according to tradition
lioth in )he Senate and House, in betraying ihc
promises made to the people during the presl.
dential campaign, cannot be easily forgotten.
In the Middle and New England States the
Democratic leaders have been lukewarm tariff
men simply because llicir election depended on
this question, while in the South and West
they have advocated and inaintainnt free-trade
doctrines. It is only within the nasi two sears
that a slight change has come over certain
prominent Democrats one leader in iarticu
lar, Dan Voorhces, of Indiana, tatter known
at "The Tall Sycamore of the Walnsh." Tbt.
gentleman was, up to the lime mentioned, a
free-trade advocate and a great friend of the
Southern leaders who, in early days, were
aicong the most pronounced of ihe ami-tariff
clement. Il was partly on account Df the iln.
plicity of the Deinocra)ic leaders on Ihe )ariff
question that Hancock was badly lieatcn by
Garfield, a consistent tariff man in the House
and on the stump, in 18S0. I) will also lie re-
memliercd that )he Northern Democra)lc
leaders straddled )he question by advocating
lanii tor revenue only." General Hancock,
1) will likewise be remembered, after having
been silent for some time after his nomination,
forced by the people's clamor In ihc New
hngland and Middle States to define his nosi
lion on this question, declared for "a tariff for
revenue only," and il was this declaration thai
secured him the greater portion of )he Indus.
)rial clemen) of the democracy in that hive of
industry, the great State of Pennsylvania. If
the Democratic leaders live up to their tradi
lions In 1883, the Republican party will easily
regain what It las lost this year. Liberal
minded Republicans all over the country look
upon Ihe present defeat as a necessary purgative
for the purification of the party. It is lo !
hoped that it may prove so, for success has

THE NATIVE TRESS
A Dialogue Mnrtn If. M. Gibson and G. It'M
Piip), in the OJJia of lie Minuter
of Foreign Affairs.
Gibson "llartwcll, Dole and Cattle are
the one who are Inciting the Hawaiian lo
get up meetings of the citirent lo put oul Ihc
ministers They want American alone for
ministers, and no Hawaiian to be in the cabi
net. They want Ihc government lo be con

Pilio" I am an Hawaiian) I hate not
been spoken lo by one of them, nor have I
liecn advised by Ihcm. My actions and my
utterances arc of my own motion. I am not
al all in fator of annexation, I totally opsc
the whole plan."
Gibson" I do nol supxse you arc one in
clined that way, but other Hawaiian arc the
Pilifo "I know nothing almut it, nor have
I heard any such thing from those with whom
I acted In Ihit mtcling of citirens"
Gibson "Ate you prepared with a good
cabinet, if Ihc present one Is tinned out?"
t'ilifo "It can lie shown that there are
foreigners and Hawaiian also fitted for the
txwitlons. You nre not a foreigner worthy to
lie at the tail end of this list, and Hush and
Kaal arc not worthy lo lie al the tall end of
the list of llawatians fit for cabinet positions."
Such was our conversation, and I desire to
explain my own jKisitlon and that of others
who stand with me. I ninan Hawaiian under
n constitutional government, with a constitu
tional king, at hat been explained. When I
received Intelligence that Hawaiian were
lo gather a meeting of citizens lo exprcsr their
opiHisition lo the calnnet, I took tlic first vet
sel so at to bo In time for It, since I was one
who had opMised the ministers with my pen,
through the newspaper, both over my own
name and ocr nom dc plumes. I met
with the citizens, I looked at the" rcsolu
lions, and agreed with them, for they were the
very ones that had previously liecn in my own
mind and in that of my friends who had con
tended ror the Hawaiian people.
My first associates were purely Hawaiians,
viz., the Kawainui brothers. They were the
one who requested me lo speak at Ihe
1 . f t I l a it f . jI I" ff
ing. I had short time for preparation, for it
were well lo have ample space to prepare for
such nn important matter. It were well lo fill
with substantial mailer the charges against the
It seems as if Gibson thought that the Ila
wniian had not the ability to form a meeting
anil to state the reasons for their opinions in
resolutions. Wherever the Hawaiians has
held meetings they have done it with ability.
I am proud to say that at all times the Ha
waiians have had ample ability to organize
their own meetings and to do their own speech
making without needing teachers to instruct
them how to do it.
The putting in the name of others is merely
a tricky falsehood of Gibson, by which he
seeks lo make the work of the people of no
effect. What he say s is false, for al all times
and places when there has been called an an
nexation meeting, I hav e not for my part de
layed to oppose such actions, and such has
been the wish of all true Hawaiians. Regard
ing the desire that has been ascribed to have
only Americans for ministers, how is it that
he also is an American? And how does it hai
pen that the majority of the judges of the
supreme court are Americans, and yet who ap.
lointcd them? The selection of the judges of
the supreme court is by none other than the
King. If he wishes only Americans, so it is;
and if he selects them from different national!'
ties it is well ; the responsibility of the choice
rests iqion the King. Ami is it wrong for the
nation to utter Us objections to a ministry
whose character they see to be really good for
nothing, as the present one is seen to be ?
To Ins second question, "Can a suitable
Hawaiian cabinet be formeil if the present one
is aliolishcd?" There is no trouble about that;
it can be done. Docs Gibson fancy that he is
the only good American alive? If so, why do
the foreigners so greatly oppose him? They
sec and hear that he Is one of the ministers
that resist the wish of the people; and he
breeds greater disgust in them than any of his
fellows. Yet with shameless effrontery he per
sists in clinging to his office. The country
spues him out; the people of his own color
and the independent, thinking ones among the
Hawaiians abhor lum; and if there are any
not in this list they probably rcceiv c weekly
wages from him at hit printing establishment.

THE COMMITTEE ON GENEALOGY.
Mr. Kiiitor: The law relating to the(royal)
genealogy is licing carried out. This is a curi
ous piece of business, because all of those who
have personal knowledge in the matter arc
dead, and the names published by ihe Elele
ronkolii are those of very young iiersons,
What do they know about the work put into
mcir Hands I
Doubtless the books of genealogy have been
placed in their hands, and is it not best to have
confidence in these books? And what better
can this committee do than to spend money?
Those who have the management of thi:
business should not think that the Kings
attained their high rank by descent from those
of distinguished position alone. A cover has
been laid over the bar sinister that mingles
stun their blootl an ignoble strain and brings
them into relation with serfs and common peo
ple; and if these gcnealogy-makers wish to set
forth the genealogies of some other they will
have to put the blind, the halt and Ihe lame
on to the shoulders of real chiefs aii), and
wnai will be the result or this sort of work!
Slullonc bruise the tender T(wiitYshoot,andthus

Ihc reason why these mailers were hushed up
oy me genealogists or Ihc olden lime; and i),
)he name of the aliii is lo be degraded to the

will have been Ihe use of this business?
