i, openly delying ine majesty
Yet they get away with it.
of California, that its courts of
Graft and the Grafters
IN every part of the country are sdndry crafty gentlemen, whose busi
ness it i to live by graft. Usually they keep withiu the-law. If you
were to inquire of one of these plunderers what excuse he had to offer
for his mode of living, he would tell you that "business is business."
This Beems to be a favorite expression when they have no valid excuse to
offer for their conduct. The successful burglar might make the same
excuse, and with as much reason. But this excuse if given by a high
wayman in a court of law would prove foolW i and futile.
But the crooked merchant, the cheating .nanufacturer, the adulterat
ing druggist, seldom offer this excuse in va n.
Committees of Investigation, are holdin ; sessions in different parts of
the United States today to investigate thj land frauds, and other forms
of graft, but what will be the outcome. Rome one will suffer, but it
will not be the real grafters.
The whole country stands amazed at tht effrontery of that King of
Grafters, Patrick Calhoun, and his lawye;
of the court in San Francisco, recently.
But it will long remain a blot on the State
law, can be made use of for political intrigue
Since men began to buy and sell, and those without consciences began
to cheat and steal, "business is business" has been a trade proverb,
The man who, in private life is reasonably honest, and who is a regu
lar depositor in the contribution box at church, discovers that he can
change all this in his line of every day work, and excuse himself, by
announcing solemnly that "Businese is business."
The Sugar Trust, not content with the enormous profits incident to
almost complete monopoly, began to cheat the very government that had
granted that monopoly. In the prosecution that followed who suffered?
Not the real grafters. ,
It is all very well to condemn grafting, but the honest citizen has not
done his full duty until he refuses to countenance the individual grafter.
It is right and proper to decry thievery and trickery, crookedness and
corruption, but the force and effect of the cry are nullified 'f the trick
ster is hail fellow well met in the ordinary walks of life, or if the oorrup
tionist receives the glad hand when he goes forth
We may tell our boys that honesty is the best policy, but they will
naturally view our statements with doubt if they see dishonesty boldly
and successfully stalking throughout the land. We may tell them that
the eorruptionist is a man to be distrusted, an enemy of society; but
they are bound to doubt us when ''they see us shaking hands on the
street corner, and swapping yarns with the man whose crookedness is a
maAer of common comment.
Dishonesty will disappear only when the dishonest man is ostracised.
Bribery will pass out only when the giver and taker of bribes are both
refused admission to the councils of honest men. Grafting will become
unpopular when each and every grafter loses popularity. Years of
empty preaching will not otherwise diminish them. This does not apply
to any particular person or locality; it means every city and town and
village in the land. Grafters and rogues and rascals exist everywhere,
and are everywhere tolerated. .
If the ' Advertiser could only forget, and let the chip slide off its
shoulder, become part of the Republican Party, and' not imagine con
tinually that IT IS the Republican Party, there would be lesB political
bickering over in Honolulu.
The Star announces that George Henshall has gone back to his first
love, and is again holding down a position on the Star staff. This will
surely be a happy event for the Star.
Not content with swinging the big stick over the other newspapers of
Honolulu, the Advertiser is now trying it on the Republican Party, but
the G. O. P. has a thick hide. ,
(Or, Kippered Kipling.)
BY N. P. BABCOCK.
0ME fools there were, and they played their stack
I (Even as you and I),
On a large white man to defeat a black
(We called, him the man with the deadly Whack!)
But the fools now know he could never come back
(Even as you and I).
Oh, the time we spent and the thoughts we lent
And the weight of the gold we lack
Belong to the Jeffries who did not know
" (And now we know that he never could know)
He never could come back.
Some fools there were, and their goods they spent
(Even as you and I) ; .
Reno and keno-the puce they went
(And it wasn't the least what they thought it meant);
But a fool must follow his natural bent
(Even as you and I). .
Oh, the sleep we lost and the dough it cost
And the excellent things we planned
Belong to the Jeffries who could never come back
"(And now we know he could never come back) ;
Yes, now we understand.
And it isn't the shame and it isn't the blame
That stings like a red hot tack ;
It's coming to know he never knew why
(Seeing at last he could never know why)
The duece he couldn't come back.
