is not only wnrning in them hut occa
sion for legislative enactments that will
in a measure reduce the grounds of
friction and satisfy equally both nnrtics
to contracts. It imarknlilc ilint no
suggestions appear in the chief justice's
rcort relative to needed modification
in our lahor contract system. Such
suggestions coming front such an im
partial source would have great weight
with our legislators, and might lead to
enactments that would amply protect
employers while at the same time re
moving some of the present sources of
discontent among laborers. It is in
teresting to notethat while the largest
area of discontentent during i8So-!
was at Hilo, during 1882-3 it had
shifted to Kiwi. This latter fact, in
the light of the German rebellion on
the latter island, suggests a fact which
undoubtedly accounts for several hun
dred cases of desertions each bienniel
period, viz; that discontent acts like a
contagious disease inoculating quite a
class of innocent men with the virus
flowing in the veins of certain vicious
men who arc always and everywhere
bound to make trouble where they
fail to find it rcacy-madc. Contract
laws cannot be charged with the occa
sion of many such offences, and it is
just that so much, and much more that
could be noted, should be said in be
half of our present contract system.
That system is more humane and ac
cords greater comfort and liberty to the
laborer than probably any other con
tract system in sugar lands the world
over. And that is sufficient reason why
it should be made as little obnoxious
to the laborer as the peculiar con
dition of plantation labor will justify.
The Contract Labor Problem is
chiefly a consideration of how tb get
on with the Chinese plantation hand.
That indispeusiblc toiler has been the
subject, of much incidental current com
ment, of some unjust aspersion, of con-siderablcscntinicntalovcr-considcration.
When all is said, the fact remains that
we could not gel on without him. If
kept within bounds he is not only s.
plantation laborer whom wc cannot do
without but is so far, the best develop
er of our auxiliary industries. Rice,
bananas, taro how little of each would
be grown without the Chinese ! And
yet, if these Chinese are not regulated
the advantages which their cheap
labor under contract brings to the coun
try will be offset by the difficulty of
holding them under contract and of
controlling them alter their contracts
have expired. Both difficulties arc
encountered by planters. The extra cost
of plantation labor extra, lecause un
forsccn and unjustly put upon plan
tation, by desertions or strikes has
aggregated several thousand dollars.
The' proposed new law to register
Chinese provides a remedy tor one part
the existing difficulty the desertion
part. Wc think the bill ought to be
amended so as to exclude from its
lcrations all those Chinese who now
hold licenses If it can be made to work,
then it ought to do much good. Such
a law is surely needed.

Wc think, the proposed Sunday law was
justly defeated. 1 lie strictest reasona
ble construction of the old law could
not possibly work any serious hardship
to any one. There is nothing in it
which prescribes any jwnalty for quiet
family recreation on buniiay. it is true
that the beginning of Section 2 reads :
"The lord's day is taboo.- all worldly
business amusements and recreation
arc forbidden on that day?' but no
lenalty is prescribed. It is a law with
out power of cnforcemeiiL The rest of
the section reads s "and whoever snail
keep oiien his hop, store, warehouse or
workshop, or shall do any manner of
labor, business or work, except only
works of necessity and charity, or be
present at any dancing, public amuse
ment, show or entertainment, or take
part in any game, sport or play on the
lord's day, shall be punished by fine,
not exceeding ten dollars." There may
lie what some persons term a touch of
Puritanism in this. Hut it is an error
011 the right side. There is nothing in
it which prevents quiet driving, quiet
walking, quiet meeting for quiet con
versation. Hut its whole spirit and aim
is directed against the open and flagrant
abuse of a day that a majority of the
community believes ought to be "a day
of lest." The majority right ought to
be repccted. The law remains as it is
for two )can. The new measure Mill
nrobably come up for consideration in
'86. It may be well for friends of a
quiet Sunday to study the present law
and determine whether or no some con
cession may not reasonably be made ;
whether, for instance, the law may not
be amended so as 10 permit the puistiit
of avocations generally believed to lie
ncci-isaiy to public convenience- -the
butcher's trade, the baker's. Amend so
as to make the law thoroughly sensible;
but do not tale from Hawaii one of its
chief charms, its restful Sunday,

radical change is not made in our
present law. Men all over the Islands
are freely using liquor today who
hardly touched it in other year. Ks
penally is this true among the uatitc
Hawaiian. The full effects of this
general use of intoxicant does not ap
pear in the statistic of the period just
dosed. The effects of free rum during
the past two years have only partially
been wrought out as yet, and wc may
look with reason for an increase of
crime on this account during the
coming two years notwithstanding the
possible enactment of a prohibitory
law. I low ninth more has the nation
to fear from an increase of crime if the
present law remains in force I No legis
lature ever met in this kingdom that
faced greater responsibilities in the
matter of liquor legislation than the one
now sitting. What a boon would it be
to the native Hawaiian were foreign
liquors forbidden entrance into any of
our ports I hat a tiod-scnd to the ig
norant immigrants were the laws of this
land such that they could not find
liquor from the time they touched our
shores I What a profit would our busi
ness firms gain were the money now
spent for liquor by the people all over
the group, spent instead for clothing
and food and building material I So
long as liquor is imported it will reach
every hamlet. Given Honor and an
appetite and one will find the other.
Close our ports to liquor importations,
put a bonus on the discovery of distil
leries ofoMthao and tiaht inn, and give
a reward for the conviction of every per
son who uses cither, and some very
rapid strides in material prosperity will
be the result."
Wc print above the carefully pre
pared opinion of an earnest and dut-
poken citizen, a prohibitionist from
principle, and who believes the measure
practicable. We print below the alter
native scheme of a gentleman who
is also a prohibitionist from principle,
but who believes it is not (at present)
practicable ; and who believes it is
Kssible to unite all good citizens on a
restrictive plan when only .1 minority
may be united for prohibition.
In his striking sermon of last Sunday
night Mr. Cruzan touched upon the
idea, first suggested by a contributor to
the Daily I Iawaiian, that the individual
consumer of strong drink should be
obliged to take out a license or permit.
This idea was further elaborated by
one of Mr. Cruzan's listeners, substan
tially as follows : First thought Coin
lulling the vendor to pay a license more
or less heavy has so far proved inopera
tive as a measure of reform the heavier
the license paid the greater the tempta
tion to increase sales by questionable
practices and to increase profits by del
eterious adulteration. In this it may
Ik well to take a new departure and
make the consumer also pay for a
license. The injustice of compelling
a retailer to pay a license of $1,000 a
year while a wholesaler pays only $250
and sells vastly larger quantities, with
vastly wider consequences and respon
sibilities must be manifest to every
reasoner. Why not impose the same
license tax upon all vendors of liquor
as is now paid by the wholesaler ? Sec
ond thought Recognizing the right of
traffic in liquors, the vested rights of all
who engage in tliis traffic must be fully
protected Until a majority of legal
voters shall declare against the traffic,
it is entitled to full protection under
the law enjoyed by any other traffic
subject to such restrictions as com
munity self preservation shall agree
Uwn. Third thought As statistics
have proven over and over again that
a large proportion of all the crime,'
disease and suffering in the world is
traceable to the use of .intoxicants, and
as this crime, disease and suffering help
to make public prisons, hospitals and
asylums necessary, is it not simple
justice to make the consumers of liquor
pay the buiden of the enforced taxation
which goes lo supmrt these prisons,
hospitals and asylums ? The idea of
licensing the consumer may ie worked
out as follows : A icrson desiring to
use intoxicating liquors, medicinally or
as a beverage, shall present himself to
a licensing bureau, fnm which licenses,
fully descriptive of applicants, shall issue
to adults only, and for which a fee of
1 10 shall be exacted, the license to be
good for one year, unless revokedfor any
of the following reasons: legal conviction
for intoxieationjpetition of relatives in the
order recognized by the statute govern
ing descent of j)rocrtyi provided the
ctition be for cause as recognized by
any judge of the supreme or circuit
courts ; legal conviction of transfer of
license with intent to evade the law ;
legal conviction of furnishing liquor
fur gain without a vendor's lictiue.
Per Conttv The legal conviction of
intoxication or of furnishing adulterated
liquors shall work to revoke the license
of a vendor, wholesale or retail. Revo
cation of licenses to either vendor or
consumer shall prevent the granting of
new licenses as follows i first offense,
for one month 5 second offense, for
three months ; thiid offense, for six
months ; fourth and all following of
fenses fur one year, Jlurth though' t
The bin den of proof shall le uKn the
vendor ; before furnishing liquor to any
jjjcreon, the vendor sbill satisfy himself,
1111 w'iiilt uf iiY'i.vi'iii of h rliir,
that the iK-riiin prrinting viid Imiikc
it the petion drsaibed therein , and
the sale of liquor lo an intoxicated
holder uf a nnt-umcr', llcenw nhall

who iihuse the privilage ? The stale
ha a perfect right lo regulate the drink
Ira file ns it ha to regulate the rallying
of concealed weapon. Whether it has
a right to compel prohibition depend
on whether the majority sentiment in
favor of abstinence is strong enough to
make a prohibitive law operative if
Med. At present, the community
sentiment is pretty evenly divided (so
far as we can judge.) Wc hope, how
ever, that, if the law pas n drawn, it
may carry the cordial support of all
who have the temperance cause
thoroughly at heart ; and that it shall
not fail for lack of hard work --aggressive
Wc cordially support the proposition
that all liqunrjihall he subject to gov
ernmental inspection, both while in
bond nnd after it is offered for sale by
either wholesale or retail, and wc trust
such n measure may be passed. Adul
teration is' the rule in American liquors.
In the absensce of proof wc have no
right to charge liquor sellers here with
adultcring dieir spirits or wines. Hut
we have surety that the liquors they
import particularly the less expensive
brands have not lieen "cloctcrcd" be
fore they reach this port. Govern
mental inspection, accompanied by
heavy penalties, including forfeiture of
license, would prevent much of the
worst effect of drain drinking if the
htw toula be earned out. If III It all
ends in an, 'if."

A bill dealing with the contagiou
diseases of animals will soon be con
sidered by the legislature. We sincerely
nope that all the nohlcs nnd representa
tives will assist in making it as thorough
and complete as possible, so as to in
clude within its scope all diseases of the
lower animals which are communica
ble to other animals and especially to
human beings ; the list of which
diseases is already greater than most
persons imagine. A few years ago,
no one in Honolulu troubled himself
about this matter : but lately, from
several places on this and the other
islands, reports have come that some
disease is carrying ofT the animals but
more especially the horses. Up to the
present time, these accounts do not
state positively whether this mortality is
due to only one disease or to several
distinct diseases ; nor, in any case, has
there been given any description of the
symptoms observed during the illness
of any animal. Hut from a verbal de
scription of the symptoms given by
sonic whose horses have died, added to
the fact that in some of the eases the
disease has been said to be "farcy,"
there are .strong reasons for suspicion
that "glanders" has made its appear
ance in our midst. borne persons
assert that the disease referred tb is not
glanders, but only farcy : butrry is
glanders in a latent foi m, and sooner or
later will show its real nature unless
measures to check it are early and
promptly adopted. Others, more posi
tive, assert that glanders never was seen
in the Hawaiian Islands, and, therefore,
never could exist here, even if imported!
At any rate, there is no need for the
public to wait until one or two human
lives have been lost, before instituting
an inquiry into the causes of tins mor
tality. Any cause that will decrease the nat
urally healthy state of the lower ani
mals such as bad food, bad stabling,
excessive work, and especially a combi
nation ot these evils will produce
symptoms resembling those of elan
ders. Hut a horse or cow should not
at once he condemned as glandered,
because its coat has lost its natural
healthy appearance, or its eyes look
pale or even have a discharge from
tliem, or because its legs are swollen,
perhaps showing sores upon them, with
enlarged and hard glands under the
jaw, with hard cord-like lines running
irom tnem easily leit under the skin,
Hut, although these symptoms are very
suspicious, especially it there is a dis
charge of matter (or matter mixed with
blood) from the nostrils, often accom
panied with a cough, and although we
should at once isolate the animal, we
cannot be quite sure of the nature of
the disease until we have tried the inoc
ulation-test. This test consists in tak
ing some of the discharge from the eyes
and nose of a suspected animal on the
end of a lancet, and then plunging this
lancet into the skin at the lower part of
tlie neck or the same annual If the
disease is glanders, in one or two days
an tne vessels near tne lancet-wound,
nnd for some distance round it, may be
felt full, hard, and cord-like ; probably
the nearest glands alio may feel swollen
and hard, while the original wound (on
removal of the scab lyiug on it) will nj
pear covered with a grayish-white layer
of matter and will show no tendency to
t healed, II (lie animal Is notallected
with glanders beyond the temporary
irritation caused by the wound (which
heals quickly) there will be no sign of
constitutional umcniei alter two or
three days. Any animal, in which the
inoculation-test is lollowed by the symp
toms alxivc-iuetitioncd, should be at
once Killed and its body inn led or
otlieiwise safely disposed of. We dq
not yet know the source from which
the jiolsoii of glanders is derived, but
we know that this disease can be pre
vented from spreading, and that It is
seldom if ever cured when once the
symiitoms are fairly ticyelooeii.

We think nothing can bolter illust
ratelhe fallacy of instancing the United
Stales as a country succcssfnlly cm
ploying silver as the bulk of its coinage

the New York Tribune of April 30th :
(olil continues In go ntitoail, nnd the

that the I rouble "will soon correct Itself
iloes ma yet appear to lie verified. The law
is tli.it. where gold alone is used, it vill cnin
in when morris needed, and go oulciity when
the stale of business or of prices Is such that
less l needed. Hut when paper of any sort Is
substituted Tor gold in use, and llic volume of
paper varies without regard to the increasing
or decreasing demand for gold, l-n)rtations
do not have their proper cITcct upon prices and
the state of trade, nor do exHi;H "correct

dincrcnl nations. Our ca'se is limply this t
Wc arc forcing inlo circulation silrer certificates

gold goes abroad.
III other words : The balance 0
trade will not oj itself keep gold tn cir
culation. Surer must fie subsidiary or
it will drive out gold. It has always
done so. Jl always will.
It is important to keep that italic
fact steadily in view. The balance of
trade is alternately a panacea iincfa
bugaboo. Hut the balance of trade in
our favor fails of full benefit if our cur
rency be inflated with irredemable
paper, or contracted by depreciated
coinage. On the other hand, a Ltd
ance of trade against us is shorn of its
worst power for evil if the currency he

cial experience the gold standard.
A word of advice to the business
community. Do not protest too loudly
against the action of the government
in demanding gold at the custom house
I here is lusticc in the demand, no
matter what the motive underlaying it
may be. The remedy is to employ evury
effort to pass the gold law. Then the
community may insist upon gold in
government settlements. At.piesent
it will be wise to demand part pay
ment of salaries in gold ; and a justly
generous adimiustcration would not
fail to recognize the justice of the de
mand In this connection, it is gratifying to

The proposition to establish tlie

it has much to commend it Such
dose pattcniug would make its scheme

bonds to the sum of (say) $r, 000,000 ;
to deposit these bunds in the Hawaiian
Treasury J to issue notes to the amount
of 90 percent, of the par value of the
bonds so deposited, or a total of say

these conditions1, a bank ofjssue ought
to conserve a public necd There is
of course an alternative scheme which
ought to he defeated, A charter may
be asked, empowering the hank to issue
bank notes to the amount of its
deposited bonds, and payable in the
neio silver. Such a hank of issue would
be a public calamity. If both our
banks should be enixjwerud to issue
notes, secured by government bonds,
purchased at far for Uniltd-Siatct gold.
and payable in gold on demand, the
public benefit ought to result as effect

We do not like the police commission
bill as drawn. It should be said in
justice to its framer that he desired to
have it carefully considered in commit
tee. Wc hope it may be so amended
as to go a great deal further than it
does go. The principal objection to
um iii3cut acMinu is llic llisuiucilL'llcy
of its head. We tntst wc have made
this sufficiently clear in former articles
on this topic. The chief value of an
intelligent non-pnilisau commission
would be its ability impartially a fit
head of the police dcartnient. That
officer ought to be within reasonable
Ixmnds an autocrat. He should have
full iiovvcr to regulate the duties of his
inferior officers, to fine them for inat
tention, to suspend and even to dismiss
them. And, oi) the other hand, he
'Should be strictly accountable for all
his acts to the police commission. We
have not space to consider the details
of the bill as drawn ; but will discuss
its merits and demerits nt length nc
week if it be not passed or killed by
' In a paragraph of lasr week's issue
we called attention to the projiosed in
crease in salaries of several officials.
In connection with the salary of the
K)lice justice of Honqlulit, we think tlie
community sentiment endorses our sug
gestion that if the increase be made the
Judge ought to have no other duties. It
needs to be considered, however, that
a two years tenure of oii.ee (all tliat may
surely le counted on) is too short to
justify any good lawyer in abandon
ing a lucrative practice even for so
considerable a salary as .j.Soo a "yeyr,
There seeuis no good reason why the
tenure of the police Justice should put
le made ten years or, better still, du
