The Garette charter case was argued
before Judge Austin last .Monday.
The arguments were on points of law
almost entirely although the merits of
the case were succinctly stated by Mr.
I lartwell for the plaintiffs. 'I he argu
ment for the Gazette proprietors was
thatit is part of the plain tint)- of the
minister of the interior to present to
the king in privy council all petitions
ing that they may be granted or rejected
as he sees fit. 'I he defendants contend
K that the spirit (as well as the acknow
ledged letter) of the law gives the
minister of the interior full discretion
to biing charters forward or dejay them
as he sees fit. Messrs. Smith &
'Ihurstonand Mi1. A. S. Ilartwellap
peareel for the plaintiff, Messrs. Atkin
son iS: Grieve; and Messrs Neumann
and Whiting for the defendant, the
minister of the interior. '1 hecise was
well talked on both sides, and a good
many legal bain were split to their cry
roots. Judge Austin will decide upon
the question of discretion or indiscre
tion, under the f,m; next Monday. No
one doubts that he will decide accord
ing lo law as he ought, regardless of
the abstract merits of the cause. Hut,
in case the law shall be interpreted to
mean that the discretion or indiscretion
of a minister of the interior may play
clucks and drakes with the community'
business, for purposes of spite or black
mail or at the dictation of an ofilcid
"boss," it is high time that the law
should be altered.

lierfcrted arrangements which promise

government of the country to weigh
those considerations carefully. It will
be the summit of shortsightedness for

Whatever Mr. Adee's mission to this
government may be, neither he nor
Commissioner Daggett, to whom he re
ports, arc as yet prepared to make it
public. Unquestionably be has come
to inquire into the contract between the
government and the Oceanic Steam
ship Company relative to Chinese
immigration. Wc have good reason
for the belief that Mr. Adee's inquiry
will have direct bearing upon the
continuation of our treaty with the
United States, and that one condition
of continuance will be that no exclusive
contract shall be entered into on the
part of this government that shall shut
out American ships from doing free
what nny other vessels (even thoueh
themselves Amciican)do undersubsidy.
another condition is likely to be that
this country shall enforce the American
tariff schedule thus compelling us to
trade more lamely with the United
States; in other words, to make the
treaty more truly " reciprocal."

Km 1 on Saiurdav 1'ki.ss -Sir:
There has been of late considerable
current comment upon the inadequacy,
inefficiency and inconsistency of the
police department of the kingdom.
This comment has been by no means
confined lo newspaper writers or to
members of the "opposition"; but Ins
included most of the thinking men of
all classes. As it now stands the system
is at once a failure and a farce. 'I he
incompetence of in executive head is
latgely responsible for this, but the
system itself is chiefly' to blame. The
mere lopping off of limbs that have
outlived their usefulness is by no means
enough; the system itself must be re
formed. What this reform is to be is
for the careful consideration of the
coming legislature. . The following suti-
grstions, however, arc not alone the
views of a small minority. They are
based upon the experience of older
governments than our own, and reflect
the judgment of some of the soundest
thinkers in the kingdom. Kxpcctant
legislators are respectfully invited to
consmcr inesc views anil accord to
them what vveieht thev deserve.
Health, morality and the safety of life
ami properly, arc largely dependent
upon the police control of the commu
nity. That control, in turn, is largclv
dependent upon the system under
which it operates. And that svstcm
must be formulated and set in opera
tion oy legislative action. I.ct legis
lators realize how deep is their resnon.
sihility in this matter, and wc may have
at least the beginning of the needed re-
lorm. 1 here was never greater need
of an intelligent legislature. And no
question that is likely to come before
it calls lor the exercise of more patient
investigation or greater knowledge of
Hawaiian oinuai mc, 01 the Hawaiian
people and of human nature.
'I he evils of the situation maybe
divided into three heads: of system, of
executive control and of personnel. In
considering the system the first anomaly
which presents itself is the existing
union between civil and police func
tionsin most other countries distinct.
The necessity of this separation applies
particularly to cities, in this kingdom
it applies with especial force to
Honolulu only. Hut here it annlies so
clearly that he who runs may read if
11c can read at all. The average
policeman is recruited from the ranks
of average men, the world over; and
the average man is unqualified, by either
natural intelligence or education, to do
more than one thing at a time and do
h well. No policeman can be serving
civil processes, or hunting up witnesses.
without neglecting the plain duty of
guarding tne city and watching its citi
zens. This criticism applies to the
rank and file, to " captains" and patrol
men. Another evil of system is the
method of appointment. The gover
nors of the respective islands, who
now appoint the police, have liter
ally nothing to do with police
management. Since the eov ernorshins
ceased to belong bv the unwritten
law of traditional custom to men who
were chiefs in both name and rcalitv.
the office of governoi Ins been a purely
supernumerary one. To wear lace on
one's coat and red feathers in one's
hat, to have foreign men of war burn
powder in one's honor and be privi
leged to burn powder one's self, to
boss our matchless band, is what at
present constitutes the pomp and
encumstance and actual consequence
of a gov ernorship in the kingdom of
Hawaii. Hut mixed with this harm
less play-day pageantry which every
one is willing to see centred in such
amiable hands as thqsc of good-natured
John Dominis are serious duties, call
ing for the active exercise ol courage,
tact and experience. In lieu of police
appointment by the governor, I would
substitute a commission of three men
one to be appointed by the minister
of the interior and the attornevucntral
jointly, another by the Honolulu
Chamber ol Commerce, and a third to
be elected by the real estate tax-payers
Of the city of Honolulu. Kach of these
men should be n projierty holder, a
voter and a resident of Honolulu for at
least two years. These men should
serve without pay. On entering upon
their duties they should so classify
themselves by lot that one should go
out of office in one year, another in
two years and the third in three years

pointing or electing iicrson or ersons,
each subsequent apiwintment or elecy
tion to fill the office lor three years
unless the officer be removed by death,
resignation, or iinjwachment before the
supreme court. 'Ibis commission
should have power to appoint an officer
to be known as chief of police, he in
turn to be empowered to select his own
assistants, subject to confirmation by
the commission; and, in common with
sulordinatc, to hold office during the
pleasure of the commission or until re
moved by impeachment. All the nolice

Hon of good men It would un

projicrty insured by a sound police
As to the present officers of the
present force, the Press has already
said enough to set thoughtful people
thinking. Doubtless it angered the
friends of the marshal, and would have
angered the friends of the head sheriff
on Maui and Hawaiiiftheythotight that
the Press included them in the same
category of incompetence. Sheriff
Wilcox, of Kauai, has shown capacity,
but it is extremely doubtful that he
could be induced to forsake the garden
island for anything he might be ofTercd
here. It is for thoughtfut men who
have families to support and property
to protect to consider well who, in this
busy comihunity, is best fitted to be
head of its police system.
A word now as lo thepersonnel. The
daybasgoneby in this community when
a large majority of native policemen
will answer. At least a third of the
force ought to be whites. All ought to
he young men of character, of courage,
of stature, of strength and of intelli
gence. To have such men they must
be paid good wages, At least as
much as they could earn at other
work. It is for the legislature unless
wc obtain a municipal government and
a town council to say how many
policemen Honolulu needs. Whatever
the number, let them be all legnhirs,
this "half-fine" abomination has existed
too long. All the officers ought to be
men of unblemished reputation for
honesty and sobriety. All ought to be
able to speak both Hawaiian and
Knglish. None ol them should be al
lowed to work at any other business.
As to Marshal Parke and Deputy
Dayton let them still be marshal and
deputy, "but confined strictly to civil
business. 1 lie mounted police force,
having demonstrated its mastctly in
ability to be cither ornamental or use
ful, bad best be "done" in terra cotta, and
placed inthe museum as a warning tofu
turc legislators. In this cut t considcra
tionofa bigsubject I have left the police
system of the otlier islands almost en
tirely out of the question. Klcction of
sheriffs by the tax payers of each island
or set of islands, each shci iff to appoint
his deputies, ought to better the con
dition of things throughout the group.
As no Hawaiian city, other than Hono
lulu, is large enough to need a separate
police system, the sheriffs, if elected bv
the real estate tax payers, might safely
be trusted to do their duties if they
did not it would probably be the fault
of the clectois.
