The fourth volume of the Saturday
Press closed with last Saturday's issue.
The year just past has been an exciting
one in local newspaper annals. It his
seen the Advertiser change hands
twice, the Bulletin change editors three
tunes, and the Hawaiian bud and
Mobsom. The Press has prospered,
has had its share of public approval
and of public patronage, and now it
sneaks, as it did a year ago to-day, for .
that same approval, that same patronage 1
and as much more of each as it may I
diserve. At no time in this paper's
career has it made many promises ; but
we think all that have been made have
been kept except where some! modifi
cation ol an original plan was found to
be to the better advantage of the read
ing public. Whether the course of the
Press has met the approval of its read
ers cannot be fairly judged. There are
too few I-'nglhh readers on the islands to
give a weekly newspaper a large circu
lation. Divide that circulation among
four newspapers and no one of the four
makes a very extensive showing If we
have any right to quarrel with the
reading public it is that too hiany of
our renders are not subscribers ;-and
the only it-quest we have to make is
that every man who endorses the stand
of the Saturday Press for honest and
economical government and for the
use of newspaper English that
is vigorous without being inelegant
shall emphasize his endorsement by
sending a cheque for the amount of the
As we had occision to state last
Thursday through the medium of the
Morning Guide, there is before the
privv .council an application for n
charter of incorporation of the Bulletin-1
PrcbS Publishing Company. I here are
enough subscribers to the company to
Insure it a -good start in life if the
chariot be granted. In case it is
granted, the Press will become,
in part, the weekly edition of the
Bulletin and will he published
on life day found most advanta
geous in supplying other-island sub
scribers. In case the charter be not
obtained and no unforseen contin
gency ariie the Press will keep on
the even tenor of its way, content to be
read, appreciated and supported, by
the most intelligent in the community.

Tort Street Church, in which body of
our citizens-he takes a lively and appa
rently perennial interest, says the ob

Poit-Strcct congregation for no better
reason than that the Portuguese are Ro

member when Truthful Waller drove
the editorial quill of the P. C. A. cannot
forget a paragraph that ran like this;
"We find a member of the 1'ort-ijtrcet
Church ioininc hands with a Jew to
import a Roman Catholic population."
This was when Walter considered tne
present - minister at 'Washington the
prime offender against Hawaii-nei. As to
Japanese immigration, .the fact is that
a. member of the Bethel Church took up
Japanese immigration where the astute
foreign minister laid it down, and by
persistent and well-directed effort suc
ceeded in getting the scheme into favor
with the assembly and secured $50,000
to start the enterprise. The inconsis
tencies of the Advertiser arc becoming
glaringaltogether destructive of that
continuity of thought and purpose
which ought to animate so fearless and
high-minded a journal. The fact is
that the employment of previously-un-instructed
Hessian labor does not pay.

Mid for it has been said in these
columns. But our support of Portu
guese immigration for plantation labor
was based upon the profitable condi
tion of the sugar industry then existing.
There were too many unmarried -Chinese
in the country for the country's
good. The planters recognized thin
lact and willingly paid more for Port
uguese than they had to pay for Chi
nese partly because good prices for
sugar enabled them to do so, and partly
because the general goodpl the conn

"The Portuguese laborer at $100, su

in a nut shell. Possibly the econ
omy studied at the Tiscr office is
not of the sort to fit it to grapple with
.iny economic question. But the Tis

that one newspaper has come to his
support its principal argument being
that the Magna Charta incident in
English history Is not a sufficiently
good illustration to enforce the Bul
letin's argument because the illustra
tion is "threadbare." Hut Mr. Damon's

10 j,r Damon unanswerable. We !
flunk so now. and. not withstanding
the ability of the others in the contro-.
vcrsy, we think that what has been
said since has been at best merely
plcmcntary. The essence of Doctor
Emerson's letter is found in the follow
ing paragraph ; "In this country where
wchavc got from the method of divine
appointment to election by the people
through their representatives, surely it
is out of date to deny to the elector the
right of discussing the one whom he
had appointed to office." Ex-Judge
Hartwell's letter contains the following
concise statement of the affirmative
position, from the standpoint of public
benefit ; " It would be a public mis
fortune, to the ruler as well as the
p?ople, to refrain from open and manly
discussion of his public course. If the
criticism is unfair, the ruler has plenty
of means at hand to show the unfair
ness, besides coming out with news
paper articles signed by himself. If it
is intemcraie in tone, it loses its
force. If it is libellous, the public law
can be enforced against its author. But
within its proper limits, such criticism
is a capital conservative of law and or
der and of popular rights ; a safety
valve too, which England would no
sooner dispense with than would
It h far to be preferred to

that Mr. Damon's letter raises two
questions, as to the right and as to the
advisability oftliscussing the king s acts
cannot agree with Mr. Damon in that
gentleman's view of cither question.
The Hawaiian discusses Mr. Damon's
position in the light of history and for
tifies its own agreement with the ma
jority opinion by citations from English
history, and hngliMi literature generally.
The Gazette alone among Mr. Da
mon's critics treats the question in a
vein of flippant personality which
would come with better grace from a
journal less truthfully characterized by
the adjectives it employs in stigmatizing
the letter criticised.
As we said last week the public is
indebted to Mr. Damon for stating the
king's side of the argument. And it
required some courage on his part to
write as he did in the teeth of public
opinion. But we consider Mr. Damon
unjust to himself in declining or at
least neglecting to re-state his posi
tion so that it shall not be misunder
stood. Mr. Damon's clear-headed
ness as a man ot business, and nis
knowledge of both the principles of law
and the outlines of history, must teach
him the folly or stilling free and mil
discussion of every department (and
every official of every department) of
government whenever may be ne
cessary. But Mr. Damon and in this
he has many supporters believe that-
the king's acts ought to be discussed in
a different tone, even in a different
spirit, from that employed in discuss
ing other men. Mr. Damon believes
in studied courtesy towards the king,
as much in the public prints as in the
interchange of official courtesies; and
he may very consistently.think so with
out having any absurd ideas about
"the divinity that doth hedge a king."
But certainly if Mr. Damon believed
merely what we think, he believed he
should have said so clearly; and should
not have sent to press a hastily-prepared
letter no matter how strongly
lie may have felt.
But while we consider Mr. Damon's
letter the manly utterance of a gentle
man whom we believe, in the language
of the Bulletin, "to honestly differ in
opinion with us as to the proper course
to be pursued concerning this matter,"
we disagree with him almost in toto,
whether his position is merely what we
have stated it to be, or what it has
been considered to be by others. We
do not believe that mere courteous dis
cussion of the kine's acts, unaccom
panied by strong denunciation, is going
to accomplish any thing in this clearly
outlined fight for good government.
Calm, cold, dispassionate, "courteous"
talk no longer jibes with popular opin
ion. Men are thinking earnestly, arc
talking outspo'tcnly and are feeling
deeply. The popular indignation no
longer contents itself with wishing the
king would reform and give us a safe
cabinet. The popular indignation uses
stronger language than any Hawaiian
newspaper has ever uttered. If the
king could know by actual hearing and
observation just what is being said by
his subjects of all nationalities, Ha-
waiians no less than haolcs, he would be a
belter informed perhaps a better man
for the knowledge. 1 he reeling against
the present government is more intense
than many ol those in power begin to
reilirc. The (resent government holds
office at the .'e.isnie of the king. So
long as that lact is, so long is tne king
ruling in defiance of public opinion ;
and that means whatever you please
to call it gentlemen : "An unfortunate
condition of affairs," say some ; "a
wrong that must be righted," say we.

He came here three jears ago with good rec

to tell it now as the hailing tribute of one
whose life hat known many friendships, yet

unvarying persistence, honorably ambitious al
ways, prudent always, yet unswervinRin his con-
sup-j,c!entiousness, unflagging b his pursuit of duty,
undiscouracetl by the frown of fortune or tin
unkind cuts of malice. He educated himself
and well. He mastered his specialty, step ty
step, and five years aeo owned a drug store' In
PittsbutE. He was doing well, earning a good
living and accumulating a competence, until the
knife of an aisasln threw him on a bed of tin-
He arose in shattered health. It seemed
wise for his health's sake to sell out and "go
west at least for a season, His friends
thought so and he agreed with them. West he
went and came at last seeking the lountain of
youth to Hawaii. He travrlled to HHo and
the volcano, to Maul, and (I think) to Kauai.
The climate of Honolulu seemed to suit his
health and, obtaining employment with
Jno. A. Palmer & Co., and then with Hollls-
ler & Co., he settled down with his accustomed
energy to the exacting duties, the toilsome
round of his profession. Methodic, exact,
scrupulous to a nicety, he was oil that an
apothecary should be and more than many ate.
There were few weeks In which he did not burn
the midnight oil In studying his profession.
His own advancement, the Interests of his
employers, the better protection of the public,
held equal places in his thought. "One cannot
be unjust to one's employers, or to the public,
without being unjust to oneself," he told me
once. The remark was !t key to his nature
Socially, Mac as bis familiars dubbed him
was quiet to llic verge of reticence. Vet his
quiet had no touch of haughtiness, not the
ghost of a shadow of a suspicion of "airs." He
was grave beyond his years, quiet because his
experience had made him thoughtful, reserscil
because he had learned to weigh men before
he took them Into his inner confidence. IJnt.
when one knew him, there was no better com
panion than he in. all Honolulu. He had a
fund ol the sott of humor we call "dry" for
tack of a better word ; and some of the best
thing the Tress has published during the past
fouttecn months wrre suggested by that same
dry humor. He was an intense American, in
love of his country, in pride of its greatness,
In sorrow over its faults. He was an ardent
admit er of James C. Maine, and the only pro
nounced regret I ever heard him utter was
that circumstances presented him from being
at home to vote for president.
A little over a year ago he married Miss May
Fanning, recently of .Santa Roa, California
a congenial union. 1 heir little home was as
nearly an Eden as homes ever become in this
"Man mut work anj women must weep."
And there can be no more pathetic chapter In
any life than this the death knell sounding
from. a new-formed home like that : a good
husband, a good wife, a life of useful happiness
opening before them to be closed again in
the twinkling of an eye.
David McCartney died a victim of overwork
and a martyr to his own conscientiousness.
He had been in harness three years without a
vacation. A more robust man might have
stood It without danger. Not so he. Two
month:' vacation taken a year, six months, even
three months ago, might have renewed his
strength and fitted him to cope successfully
with the hard work he had to do. But there
was no 'one 10 fill his place while
he worked for Hollister & Co., and
alter he entered upon his duties as one of
the firm of Benson Smith 4 Co., there was no
time up to the week before his death with
the exception of three we:ks on Hawaii that
he felt he could be spared from his post. His
partners urged him to take a vacation on
many occasions during the past few months.
Had they realized, had they even sus
pected, his real condition they would
have forced him away at the point
of n physician's certificate. They ,did
not, could not know; and next to the chief
mourner and the father and three brothers who
survive him, theirs Is the ercatest loss.
The functal took place from St
Andrews pro-Cathedral on Bcrctania stieet,
street Wednesday. The exercises were accord
ing to the service of the Protestant Episcopal
Church, Uev. George Wallace officiating.
Many were present, and the hearse was fol
lowed to the-gravc by many sorrow ful and sym

Many Hawaiians know that the de
struction of the sugar industry of these
islands would injure, directly or indi
rectly nine out of every ten Hawaiians.
It it true that if an Hawaiian tells a
member of the Imposition this, the
member replies: "What nonsense! is
not Mr, Spreckeis the biggest sugar
producer on these islands: and is not
he one of us?" "That is so" replies the
thoughtful Hawaiian,"but Mr. Spreckeis
is Tar less a producer than a purchaser.
He can altera to lose on his sugar in
vestments because he makes so much
on his purchases. And adds the
thoughtful Hawaiian, "I notice that
Mr. bpreckels is smart enough to let,
other people do most of his losing for

by other people's money, Spreckelt

be made to pay something. So, if all

To know that Neptune's fiercest dart
May never harm our pride.

With records white as milk.

Had never stooped, so frailly fair,
To bless the man and damn the pair.

I might have been, I might have been
Outside this harsh world's horrid din,
A little cherub, plumply fair,
Withnild blue eyes and flaxen hair,
And lily brow and rosy cheek,
And dimpled mouth most sweetly meek.
And yet, and yet I might have been
So apt am I to spy out sin
I might have been lhat special cur
