The IIi'dcet the ilinlstcr of Finance, oa
iil before the Legislature, will be found in full
on our first page. It bIiows a total otiiuatcd
eifM-nJiture for the two coming years of $184,
2i:i 'J5, or $242,141 93 per annum. An com
pared with the budget laid before the last Legis
lature, the reduction h so great, that the fir?t
question that presents itself to the reader is,
what causes the diOerence? To thin we t-hall
refer again, merely remarking now that the
Minister has by this time learned that he is not
a very frhrewd guestior on government fiscal mat
ters, for in his report for 1800, he estimated the
revenue of the government for the two years end
ing March 31, 18G2, at $750,353 52; but they
proved to be only $031,821 48, including up
wards of $130,000 of borrowed money. His
estimate then fell short over $74,000.
The Budget opens, as usual, with the Civil
List, for which the sum of $40,000 is called,
which is a decrease from the amount voted in
the previous bill, caused by a transfer of the
salary of Prince Kamehanieha, and one or two
other items, to other departments. We do not
sec that any improvement is made by this
change, and it ttrikoa us that the more appro
priate place for the salary of His Royal Highness
is in the Civil List. We have before recommended
a larger sum be voted to him ($5,000 or $0,000)
not as Minister, but as one of the Roy Family,
whom the nation is proud to honor ai.d support.
and we still adhere to that opinion. The change
would seem to have been made by the Cabinet,
as an effort to retain the salaries of the Ministers
at their present rate.
The Department of the Interior opens with
the salary referred to above that of the Minis
ter ; and singularly enough, of the first ten items
in this department, the only reduction proposed
by the Budget is in the pay of tlie chiif clrk,
whose salary, of all those named, least merits
curtailment. If retrenchment is to be the rule,
let all be urvtd alike, but do n t single out the
hard workers, the really deserving employees of
in the list of its salaries. A large euid is called
fLr to meet the interest on tlie public debt. As
ne.tr as we can learn, over $35,000 will be requin d
fjr interest alone. For the Kilaura and interest
on Iit stock, $14,800, is wanted, in addition to
$20,000 reported ns borrowed for this object in
the debt account, making a total of $34,800,
almost enough to t ar fur the entire boat. We
hope that if she is sent to China on speculation,
the government will make enough to pay at least
the interest on the stock invested in her.
The War Department very modestly calls for
$47,700 95, in one solid lump. We very much
mistake the temper of the House, if that sum is
blindly voted for it, in the shape, it is culled for.
It may all be required, jiorhaps, but in these
hard times, when men have to wear shoes that
pinch, it is as well to know where the money
goes, and not permit 44 indefinite" appropria
tions, tj use an apt phrase of the I'oirusian,
without a good reason therefor.
The sum of $25,200 is inserted for the Depart
ment of Public Instruction, Wing $12,200 less
than that voted to it the previous session. The
sum of $G,0H) is wanted for English and Select
School. While any curtailment in the efficiency
of this Department should be guarded against.
we think arid i ave before contended that all
monies collected and disbursed for this or any
other department, should be accounted fur to the
public treasury that the receipts should be
acknowledged in the treasurer's report, and the
disbursements provided for in the bill of appro
priations. The Judiciary Department, owing to a pro
posed change in the mode of paying District
Judges, shows a contiderablc reduction in the
total amount called for. And yet it will strike
it . .1 . t 1 aw
tiie critical reauer tuat me salaries paul are
higher than the ability f the treasury warrants.
Could a permanent reduction be (fleeted in this
department, it would be a public Mcsing.
A few 44 Miscellaneous" items of expenditure
close the list. In looking over the payments
out during the last fiscal term, we notice on
pages 22 and 23 of the treasurer's report, after
the miscellaneous head, various sums not includ
ed in the last appropriation Bill, and amounting
in the aggregate to nearly $40,000, including
the sum of $20,000 paid out for the KUauca.
There was full authority for that, and there may
have been for some of the others, but we do not
i trace them in the appropriation bill as it passed
the house, and was published. By what author
ity, then, the sums expended can be placed
under the head of sums appropriated by the hist
Legislature, is not clear, nor does any explana
tion for it appear in the Report. If the fourth
section of the bill means any thing it should bo
strictly adhered to by the Mini.-ter.
We question the wisdom of abandoning the
bureau of Public Works, and all the public
improvement. There is no branch of the
service that has redounded more to the credit of
the government, nor any whose discontinuance
will be more sensibly felt throughout the islands,
than this. If our public works are to be given
up, or entrusted only to every pettifogging job-
Df all the pitiable whining ever uttered
by a distressed editor, that which appeared in
the last Polymsian, in reply to our inquiries re
garding certain suspicious-looking financial sta
tistics of the government press, is the most
curious. Lising bis temper, he gives way to
paroxysms which can only excite the laughter of
his readers, and exhausts his vocabulary in search
of phrases which a boat-boy would be ashamed
to utt-r. 44 A t-jol of others."' 44 a veritable Go-
liah," 44 insulted," stigmatized," 44 disgraced,"
44 damned," 4 foul and fulse," 44 ambuscade,"
44 Satanic reluctance.'" are specimens of the choice
epithets he indulge in. We will not retort in
such language nor indulge in personalities, but
simply remind the late director of the govern
ment press that it is his ojfuial conduit that is
called in question, that in the management of
tlie bureau under his charge there apjears to lie
something that needs public explanation. He
was entrusted with the public press, and the ac
counts of that bureau, as passed in by him, are
nt satisfactory without Some explanation. If
he considers that he can make no explanations,
without compromising bis honor, the matter
then rests between him and the Legislature, who
are the representatives of the public, and who
will be, in duty to their constituents, bound to
se whether the bureau has been properly or im
properly conducted during the last two years.
In looking over the returns of the Director for
the past few years, we lind that the earnings of
the office, as paid into the treasury, have been :

crepancy, occurring on the eve of the lease, is
what we call public attention, and if the edit

dignity to offer any explanation, or treats this

ty of young Hawaiian ladies, of this city made a received two letters from gentlemen on .Maui,
pleasure excursion to Puloa, or Tearl River. While advising of irregularity of the mails or the non-
there, it was proposed to take a short sailing, or rath- I receipt of papers, all occurring within the ast
er canotins: trip down the Iliver, and accordingly j four weeks. We can assure our subscriwrs that
the party, comprising seven females and three men, I Q srMvial mins t. ste that everyone has
(the latter to navigate the cauoe,') started fif cn the papers put up properly, but so long as the
excursion. Alter proceeding aoout a mt;e, an-i Hear
ing the reef and surf of the sea, the canoe gJt in'O
one of the swift currents so frequent at the ede of
the chaunel, and without an ins tout's premoniliuu,
the canoe filled an J s ink, leaving the fair excursion
ists in a somewhat precarious situation, where they
must prcviJe for themselves. They being a'l, how
eTer, expert swimmers anJ perfectly at home in the
water, the acciJeat at first only proviked laughter
and merriment ; but on fimling a powerful current
sweeping them cut to sea more rapidly thaa they
could resist it, they found the danger greater than
they anictipated. The spectators on slwre, perceiv
ing the accideLt, starteJ another canoe to their res
cue, but owing to the nuaibrr of persons desirous of
getting ibto it, this also cpsized and snnk, compel
ling them all again to trust to their owu strength
Seeing ad hope of rescue dispelleJ, our young mer.
mai.Is boldly determined not to give up, and each
struck out heroically for the shore. One cf the la
dies, in particular, de-serves special notice and praise
for the ussistanee civeu by her to her comrades.
With more than Atuazouic bravery she succeeded, in
the midt of the curreut and surf, in tearing off the
dresses and clothes of the less expert females, which
impeded their efforts, thus enabling them better to
couteud with the watery enemy. Mie was thus the
happy means of saving several if not all their lives
In the naroeof her friends she will accept their thanks
and ours. After having been in tue water tuv hour
from which the dauger to which their lives were
exposed may be inferred they all safely reached the
shore, none the worse for their unexpected bath.
Had the party been composed of foreign ladies, nine
chances out of .en, they would have been drowhed.

emors appears a provision, entirely absurd, and
j intended to nullify an important section in the
bill. T.iat provision is contained in Section 5,
which vie quote :
Seems A. No person boiling one or more cilices fr which
sabvrirs may be provided, shall be authorised to draw Air more
than tbe salary MT the bixhrst grade of otuce beid by bim,
ajhica shall be deemed a f ul I ertxialeiit for all his serrices, and
be shall be entitled to no other or further ojojiw-nsati. n. nnless
ocherene esprrssly authorrxed by law, or by the direction of
tits Majesty in ITiry Council.
This is the first time that any such provision has
been made in the bill, and it is a wise one, which
we trust may be adopted, and rigidly adhered la.
If officers of the government hold two or more
odces, and the pay of one is not sufficient t sup
port them, let the pay be increased, and that of
the minor office dropped.
The salary of the Marshal is lessened, and
considering that increased duties are imposed on
him, its propriety may be questioned. If, how
ever, the rule of retrenchment is applied here, it
should be extended to the Sheriffs of the other
islands, where the pay is large compared with
the service. The amounts voted for police appear
as rather small, and yet under the present econo
mical management, may terhaps suffice.
The next item of 1,000 includes an appropri
ation fur publishing judicial decisions and laws
by authority in newsjmpcr. Again, at the close
of the appropriations for the judiciary depart
ment, we see the sum of C00 inserted to cover
tlie publication of judicial decisions. Now as
the government lias contracted for publishing
these decisions and other authority notices in
in the Polynesian, why this call for new appro
priations for this object?
The budget enters 5,C00 for the Postmaster
of Honolulu and Clerk. If a faithful active
man holJs the office of Postmaster, who is willing
to work, there is no ncccst-ity for a clerk ; and we
believe the duties of Postmaster can be satisfac
torily filled for 1,000 to 1,200 a year, thereby
bringing the expenses of that department within
T,C00 arc called for, to pay for the govern
ment printing, in accordance with a contract.
We shall have sometning to say on this head in
another number, and the Keprescntativcs, before
they vote it, will probably convince themselves
of the necessity of the uj'propriation, what it is
for, and for how l ing the monopoly is to last.
For the pay of Koad Supervisors, so as to in
clude the pay of Water Sipeni.ir and Chrk of
Honolulu Market, the su n of S,C0O is in r ted.
This, it must be borne in mind, is ftr the pay of
some 13 or 20 Iload Supervisors, throughout tbe
islands, the Water Supervisor, and clerk of the
market. Now under the rule of retrenchment
cannot the three offices of Road Sui!erintendit
for Oahu, Water Superintendent and nun i t
clerk, be as well performed by one person, by
which a large reduction may be effected?
A call for 4,000 is made to defray the expen
ses of the " Prostitute Act," in other words, to
pay the physician, rather an expensive wl istle,
considering that 8,200 more arc wanted fi r the
hospital. Ib're, too, is another needle-s excuse,
inasmuch as the Hospital phy-iam inigM per
form the service, and probably with as much
satisfaction to the public, if the disgraceful pros
titute law is still to be continued in force.
Scattered through the list of appropriations
ftr this department are many small items, of
greater or less importance. The total amount
called for s lt't0,fi09, and a reduction of c-J."
000 to 30,000 can be made in it, with no detri
ment to the public service.
The forei"n office demands fir its use 23,200,
a sum larger by 3,000 than that of the previ
ous bill, the increase being mainly to meet ex
penses of a foreign mission ; but what the missiun
is does not appear.
Following down the items in the Department
nf llnflniv, very littl rednef i m will b f.iond
I likely, was it left out in order to make the bill
appear extraordinarily small, compared with bis
former budget, in which the item was inserted.
If 97,000 of the debt mature during the next
two years, it, as well as its interest, must be
provided for; and if inserted as it should be, the
bill will lu increased to nearly the proportions
of former years. In o:hcr words the budget will
foot up thus
Sundries as per Minister's estimate $l4 .213.95.
fcxcl.cu--r Bills maturing lsOJ-J 97,000.00
or an annual expenditure of
stead of the sum noted at the head of this article,
to meet which, tlie Minister estimates an income
for the two ;ears of only 492,000. If this
is the correct amount, aind the deficiency is
really so great, it liecomes all-important for the
legislature to cut every item of expenditure to
the lowest possible figure, in order to meet the
deficiency. In the present budget, we have seen
that between thirty-five and forty thousand most
be provided for interest alone. At this rate we
shall noon have a load of interest for each leg
islature to provide for, of not less than 0,000.
These may be called small items, when applying
to a nation, but it must be remembered we are
not a very large nor a very strong nation, and
that it was only a hair that broke the earners
Taking into view the above extraordinary
omission of 97.000 in the budget us laid before
the house, and also the errors in the Minister's
report as pointed out by us last week, of which
no explanation has been made, and whicl. , had
they occurred in a mercantile establishment's
account, would have obtained for the author
a " ticket of leave," taking into view these
facts, the following wheedling palaver from the
government organ appears supremely ridiculous :
With these criticisms on the detail nf tlie Ibitlet, we feci
bound to give the Ministers a. I the crclit they so richly deserve
for the care and consideration they liave evinced in tretariiix a
Uu lt that, besides its many really judicious and stunl sug
gestions upon administrative points. Combines that great advan
tage of beini; Is. low the estimated receipts of the Treasury.
Tlie simple comparison of f73j.4S2, the appropriation by the
l-eyUUlure of 1MM, and $4'i.-Ja.,.5, the estimated expenditures
for lv- 3. shows conclusively that with a will there is a
way," and proves beyond a cavil that the Ministers, shile
obeying the noble impulse communicated to th' tn from atKtvc,
as indicated ill His Majesty's SN-cch. were cointetent to grap
ple successfully with the chainted Condition of the country aud
the financial requirements arising therefrom.
In looking over the lleport of the Minister of
Finance and accomjtapying tables, as issued in
pamphlet form from the government press, we
notice numerous typographical errors, both in
the text and in the figures of the tables, some
of them quite inexcusable. With all the
facilities for executing printing here, it seems a
pity that the governm ent work should be allow
ed to be issued with such errors.
With these remarks, we pass the report and
budget over to the Ilepresentatives, as among the
most remarkable productions that have ever
emanated from any department of this govern
ment, and every way worthy of their most
serious attrition. If, after an examination into
the merits and de-nerits of these documents,
they do not pass a vote expressive of their sur
prise and astonishment tiiat, with the aid of two
of our most accomplished statisticians and also
that of the wonderfully talented editor of the
Polynesian, a treasury report should not have
been presented to them, embracing at least a
full exhibit of the public finances and wants,
free from errors, if they do not pass such a
vote, the public will attribute the neglect nn.ro
to a kindly spirit of forbearance than to its Wi.ig
unmerited. The report and budget form an
other and extraordinary proof of the unfitness of
the present Minister of Finance for the place
occupied by him.

The I'nioii of this proup under one dynasty, so beautifully
symlolized by the blemlini; colors of this honored flac, is dear
to our hea'ts, ami commends itself to our truest ilevotioti ; ami
our loyalty to yourself, t t your August Husband, and to the

Tlie cavalry then proceeded to the plains, nnd at
12 M. Their Majesties the King aud Queen, accom
panied by the Prince Royal, nn 1 escorted by the
Rifles, alwi went thither. The cavalry went through
their various evolutions and tournament practice, in
I which each member had an opportunity to show his
horsem.inship and skill as a cavnlrist. These pro
ceedings appeared to be enjoyed by Their Majesties
aud the assembled spectators, and certainly were a
novelty and a source of much amusement to all.
About 2 P. M. the exhibition broke up, nnd the spec
tators and various companies returned to town. Dur
ing the afternoon, the streets were alive with horse
men nnd women, as is custom try on our holidays.
I2f" Mr. John Montgomery nppears to be very
much disturbel on the rice question, nnd has ad
dressed two communications to the Polynesian on
the subject, as though he had been appointed a cen
sor of the press, and the guardian of all the rice
patches growing on Hawaii nei. If he esteems him
self such, he is welcome to his opinion ; but if he has
no better grounds for entering the newspaporial rinj
as a gladiator on the rice question, than he has for
appropriating the title of " Pres. R. H. Ag. Soc,"
the least said the belter. The clause in the Constitu
tion of that Society, which provides that the old
oflicers hold over in case of no election, provides nlo
that there shall be an annual meeting and animal
election of officers, which was not the case. The
hold-over clause, as in every other similar constitu
tion, was intended to npply to cases where no election
takes place at a regular annual meeting. Mr. M.
can, therefore, lay a very slender c'aim to the office
of President, and until some confirmation of it is
made, or a new election is had, it will le quite as
prudent to drop nil claim to it, as he has wisely done
in his last communication to the Polynesian.
Domestic PRonrcE. We have received from Mrs.
j G. Morris of Kalihi, who has commenced the man
ufacture of it, a bottle of Tomato Ketchup. We have
tried it nnd consider it much superior to the imported
article. It has a freshness and peculiar flavor which
renders it a most delicious condiment. Anj quantity
of tomatoes can be grown here, at a trifling expense,
an I we see no reason why the manufacture and ex
port of Ketchup cannot be extensively carried on
and made to pay well. We wish Mrs. M. every suc
cess. Naiihow Escape On Saturday last, a rather re
fractory hore was being sh'.d at the shop of Mr.
Duncan, on King street. A man was placed at his
bead, to which was attached a long rope ; the horse
took fright, the rope becoming entangled around the
man's neck, started off at full speed along King street,
turning round the corner into Port street, and was fi
nally stopped near the engin-house of Aechmic,
No. 2, by a gang of prisoners, rho were fortunately
at work on the rood at the ti'i.e. The mau escaped,
however, without any very serious injury.
Rat:ier Wet. Some of our inexperienced yout g
gentlemen took advantage of thestrotig breeze which
was blowing on Tuesday last, to take a sail in the
harbor. They had not enj iyed themselves very
Ion before a squall struck them quite unexpectedly,
which, to their horror and surprise, upset the boat
giving them an opportunity to test their rwitrming
qualifications. They succeeded in gaining the boat
again, bottom up, from which predicament they were
rescued ly another boat. "Nothing ventured, noth
ing won," though perhaps a rather wet bargain
ItomtERT. On Friday night last, the office cf
Judge Robertson, in the Court House, was broken in
to through the window, and some SCO taken there
from. This is what burglars might boast of as
practicing their art in thf h tl! of .Tustit".
MoxsTnocs. Capt. Coffin, who appears to be al
ways on the lookout for the tatest novelty, brought
us a radish a few day9 since, raised by Mr. Lewis of
the firm of Lewis & Norton. It measured 12
inches around, and IS inches in length, though
several inches appeared to have been broken off in
pulling it out of the ground.
(Corresjionileuce of the Pacific Coiuoicrciul Advertiser.)
Editor of the Com. Advertiser Sir : In the
last issue of your paper, I see stated in the proceed
ings of the House of Representatives that the In
spectors of election and more particularly the Presid
ing officer were freely censured as the authors of this
most fraudulent and spurious ele3tion." On this I
beg to remark that the statement that the election was
fraudulent is simply untrue. There was no fraud,
cither practiced or intended. Everything that was
said nnd done at Ilauula by tbe inspectors on the day
of election, was said and done openly, and in the pres
ence of the candidates and electors. In the absence,
on one of the other Islands, of the Presiding officer
of the Board of Inspectors, the Rev. M. Kuaea, I
must also protest against nny extra blame being
nwarded to him for anything which may be consider
ed irregular in their proceedings at the last election.
Here is a short statement of the facts of the case.
The polls were opened at the prescribed time, and
were kept open until five o'clock. Every ballot ten
dered by a legally qualified elector was received and
placed in the ballot box. The name of each elector
was duly recorded by the Clerk when the ballot was
tendered, and nt the close, the number of names
recorded tallied with the number of ballots received.

Since reaching here, I hare licen informed by kind friends io
Honolulu, that, as soon as my back had been turned, and when
I suppose it was thought I could not be heard from, a vile
slander was started against me. as will presently appear.
In the hands of tlie jteople of Honolulu, ' vould trust my life,
my property, and that which is still deal r, my character. I
shall therefore scorn to mxke a defense afainut the cowardly
calumny, but shall make a statement which will brand the
authors, whoever they may be, so that the finger of scorn will
be pointed at tktin. There can ouly !e two possibly three
an.1, before I am done with them here, thev will regret tbe part
they have taken. The case of one of the parties is already
attended to, and one of the others will not be neglected.
But to the slander which was to the effect, that M I bad taken
away funds belonging to an estate ; that that was aot the only
funds I had taken either but I had done as Old Trait did .'"
Now tbe fact is, that uitou the arrival of my successor, I im
mediately called on him and notified him I was ready to deliret
up the office, ic, to liiiu, aud all funds in my hands, ie.
Some doubt arose in my mind whether some f 1C00 or $100,
"belonging to seamen, ar.d not to the Vnited States, !ilKl be
placed in Ai.t hands, or whether I should settle that amount
with the Government direct. I could do either, and I am now
informed by the proper ollicers here, that it " wuul.l have been
better" for me to have taken the latter course. J , however, paid
the amount to Mr. CaJditelt. took his receipt, and the amount
is now charged to him ou the hooks of the llepartment. The
only other fundi in my aamfx, which Aaf not brn paid
ort r, belonged to two estates Kdward '. nip's and II. llorr
land's the two amounting to less than TOO. How this fund
was to be di-iposed of was not a matter of ,tnuht. I was, by the
taw and instructions, required not to tay it to my successor,
but to pay ic directly to the tloverninent. Mr. lotiglterty, who
was affording my surw.tr the benefit of him ejrpmrncr. at
first thnuyht, that that fund hhnuld remain till! longer in
the ttjfice ; but the Jay after, he came up to the office and said,
after looking at the law, he was satistied that he was lit error.
Well, I chiryrd mynrlj in the oookn with the amount
ai r mrttlrd here rurry cent, and the li 'i rrvwinit hat paid
me the balance due me, alter trllinti the above, of tuime
eleven hrndred dollar. Thus, niter my lour; connection with
the Government, 1 have the sutislactioii to say that I have an
"honorable discharge," and not one cent standing against
me on the books of the Government. I indulge the hope that
the Government mwy be as fortunate with others.
i c:H not commi'ul on this attempt to do me Injury If the
authors cau stand it, think I oan.

The whole number of electors in the district u about GGmiail, English & FreilCll GOOdS
nine iiuuureu. .e:ui- mu wuoie ut tue uauottiiig
was over by twelve o'clock, as it always is in this
District, with the distinct understanding that the
ballot box was to remain open until five o'clock, in
caMj any more should come in. This proposal wan
made, because two of the Inspectors had to ride home
a distance of two miles, and one of the candidates
six miles farther. I must here observe that at a
former election in this District, the same thing was
done with the consent of the candidates, as there had
not been any votes recorded after twelve o'clock.
On that occasion, when Ukcke was found to have a
majority of twenty-five, the other candidate admitted
that he did not expect to have any more, and Ukcke
was declared duly elected, and took his seat accord
ingly. At this last election of Jan. Cth, 1862, all
four candidates, viz, Ukcke, Kahaiewui, Nauk ioa and
Kupau, ngrred to the proposal in presence of many
witnesses. We, the Inspectors ami the Clerk, accord
ingly commenced to sort out the tickets of each
candidate, aud tc verify the number inscribed on the
rolls. It was found when the papers were unrolled,
that, on twenty eight of the ballot papers contain
ing the name of Ukeke, there was also written anoth
er name, in some instances above his name, in others
below, nnd in some on the back. The other candi
dates objected to t-uch papers being counted for
Ukeke. They stated, and I think with reason, that
as there was but one representative to be elected for
the District, it was impossible for the Inspectors or
the by-standing electors to pronouuee with certainty,
for which of the two parties named the elector, who
had deposited the billot, wished to record his vote.
On bcariug both sides and on referring to the law,
the Inspectors decided ou rejecting such ballot papers
containing two names. For my part, I have not yet
heard or seen any good reasons for altering my
opinion on this part of the matter. All the candi
dates then, Ukeke along with the others, exerted
themselves to procure more votes. Ukeke and Kaha
lewai each procured several more, which were duly
received by the Inspectors, in presence of the candi
dates and of the electors; and at five o'clock, Kahale
wai was found to have a majority of eight, ami was
declared duly elected, nnd received his certificate
accordingly. Ukeke did not then claim that he was
duly elected, or that Kahalewni was unduly elected.
He could scarcely have done so with any decency in
the presence of till tlie persons who had heard him
agree to the proceedings an hour before. e after
wards learnt that Ukeke had given a feast to the
electors ia his neighborhood, aud had distributed his
ballot papers to his guests on that occasion. That he
bad said to some of the guests that he was not sure
of them, that they might eat his pig anil poi perhaps,
and then perhaps vote for some other candidate.
To make sure of them, he told them that he would
write their names on the tickets he give them, and
that nfter the election, he would ascertain whether
such tickets had been duly handed in.
So much for vote by ballot and universal suffrage.
Oce of the Inspectors. Kuaea, told me that be had
warned Uktke before the polling began, that there
would be trouble about those tickets. I think it is
unreasonable to require from the Inspectors that they
should at sight of a ticket containing two names,
where but one candidate can be returned, be able to
decide who cooked the pig and poi, and who ate it,
who requested the vote, and who promised it.
To sum up. I admit that there was irregularly in
commencing to count the tickets before five o'clock;
but I think that the rejected votes were properly and
legally rejected. I deny that there was any fraud,
except on the part of the man who before the count
ing took place, agreed to if, and afterwards by his
acts in procuring more votes, agreed to it, and who
substantially drew back from his agreement. I feel
pretty sure that if he hv! not put in the bribery
tickets and that had all the votes put in for him been
legal, not one of the other candidates would have
leeu bise enough to petition against his return on
'he grounds that the counting had commenced at
f jur o'clock, with the assent of all of them.
