SATURDAY, NOVEMBER G.
Tlio Election Law.
The last Legislative Assembly (1SCS) seeing
that the election law of 18G4 was jrnlefinite, and
cnrtble of iaucon6tructian, rcpealoJ it entirely,
and enacted a new law to regulate the qualifi
cations of electors," &c, which may be found;
commencing at page 14 of tbe laws of 1SCS
, . . . ., . ,
The only point in the present law capable
being misunderstood, is tbe time in which per
sons roust pay their taxes to entitle them to vote.
The Constitution, Art. C2, reads, Kvery male
subject of the Kingdom vrho shall hare paid bin
taxes, &c. &c., can vote," not sivcifyin the
time in which such taxed must be paid.
The new law of 1368, Sec. 2, re-enacts the said
article of the Constitution as follows : Every
male subject of the Kingdom tcho shall hace paid
Jus taxes," &c, also mentioning no time in which
this shall be done.
Sec. 3 provides for the making of an Assess
ment Register to be made by the Assessor, of nil
rsous qualified to vote.
JSec. 4 of this law reads, " For the purposes
of such elections, every Tux-Collector slwll make
out an accurate liet of the names of ail the per
sons in his district who shall have paid their taxes
for the year immediately pftceding an election.
trifiin the time prescribed by law" &c., whether
such names be on the Assessor's list or not.
Sec. 5 prescribes that the Tax-Collector shall
on or boTore the 31st December return to the in
spectors of elections the list of qualified voters as
exteuded and corrected by him according to
Sec.. C provides that at least 15 days before
the election, the inspectors of election shall post
in three places this list of voters.
Sec. 7 makes it incumbent upon the inspectors
to hold two sesbions, not less than 10 nor more
than 20 days before the election, for the purpose
of receiving additional names to this list.
See's 8 and 9 provide punishments for the
assessors or collectors failing to do their duty. -
Sec. 10 provides that tax receipts with the
words tpialified to rote " shall be delivered to
Sec. 13 says tlat inspectors shall receive the
votes of all persons whoso names may be borne
on the list of voters and who 6hall produce to
the inspectors of elections the tax receipt with
the words qvalijicd to rote " upon it.
Now, what is the meaning of the words 41 who
shall have paid their taxes witiiix toe tiaik fr
sckibko DY law?" -It is interpreted by the in-
Motors to mean :mv time before the last day ol
i ,.. . .. . i . .
iWtWr, although at the last election (ISo8)
oil who paid their taxes prior to the election
fFeb.SA were allowed to vote. Sec. 503 of the Civil
Code authorizes the Tax-Collector -to 7 upon
tho goods and chattels of the delinquent if Ms
taxes ore not paid before the last day of Novcm-
: ber, but it is nowhere established by law that no
j one can vote, unless his taxes are paid before the
30th day of November. And Sec. 7, which re
quires tho inspectors to meet from ten to twenty
days before the day of election, clearly implies
that additions to or corrections in the register
may bo made up to that date at least. The
question arises, w;ih it not intended to allow all
who pay their taxes prior to the session of
tho iafoctors to record their names on tho regis
ter, and bo allowed to vote?
It is well, however, for the public to know the
cutirftructio-n tout will be put upon tho l.iw, and
we, therefore, urge all who wish to be ctrtain or
, . .. . . , r ...
their right to vote, to pay their taxes before this
mouth of November expires. Mechanics and
others interested iu the passage of new tariff and
labor laws, and who havo voters in their employ.
should see that their taxes are promptly paid by
Nov. 30, whether the rule bo constitutional or not. j
Ma. Emtor : I observe in the report of my re-
marks at the meeting at Kaumakapili Church on the
,.r i .,i . ... . . .
Cth of October, some omissions of some importance
to the correct understanding of the views expressed
I spoke of the subject of contract in reference to I
the repeal of the law under consideration at the
meeting. I emphatically stated that if the employed,
who had voluntarily and understandingly contracted,
xcitlfully, wantonly, perversely broke his contract,
that he injured his employer ; it was a fruud upon
him, and the law which compelled him to fulfil Lis
contract to do only what he ought to do, was right
eous and just ; that the repeal of the 1 iw without
another in its stead, to enforce good faith where
u77yvioluteJ, tended to sweep away the founda
tions of morality and confidence which the members
of a community Must feel in each other, and to
create general distrust. The servant has his remedy
if the employer abuses him or in any way violates
his contract ; he has only to complain and sustain
bis complaint, and he may be released, and his
employer fined not less than five nor more than one
hundred dollar?, and in default of payment be
imprisoned at hard labor till paid ; aud in several
cases the j-enalties of the law have been enforced on
the master, including both fine and imprisonment.
And if you consider how small the proportion of
employers to employees, the number would be very
arge if the proportion of the two parties were equal;
whereas, if the employed are not required to serve
out their contracts, so few have property beyond f
what the law exemnts. that the woul.l t nl.lp c.n.
tinually to inflict injury willfully upou their em-
ploy era with perfect impunity, whilst they would i
nave lull redress for their own grievances and
wrongs. JVbte the law says willpcllt, and laws
which give no redress against willtil wrong or
injury, inflicted by one party, whilst giving full
redress to the other, if he be injured, are neither
equal nor just. The law as it stands, I said, was
just to both parties. It redresses the wrongs of
both it protects both.
ly explanation of my meaning by the use of w nines of
things," la not reported correctly. 1 said it had no local ap
plication. It was applicable to all men everywhere. Iranian,
ariMy doea wrong and injure another without his fault, it
is fit, ritfht and proper that he should repair the wrong done to
h neighbor, ile sins by Inflicting, Un wrong, aud if he
refuses to do right, the law should compel him to do so. Tha
mi aoa onject ol taw Is Justice, and impractical laws which
rmn.irePlr no injury wwtlo done fail of their object.
Thus much ol tb substance of aiy remark on those points,
but a speaker aaid -two gentlemen (one of whom waa under
stood to be mvaelf) had spoken in favor of the coolie system
I he at A remarks ravoriug what he meant and what hi
hearer generally understood by tb " coolie system "
eettatnlu made none. I plead for the right of all men to
make contracts to labor, if they chose to do so. and of their
obiijraliuua lo keep such contracts when voluntarily made,
without deception or wrong of the other party, and of the
Justice of the law in enforcing Uiem when mill full and mta.
'onlfftoUled without any wrong ol tb other party, but to
nia injury. I know of no man who Justifies what tbe speaker
undoubtedly meant by the " coolie system," and I know of no
such system in I kit kingdom. If yon will give the above

Meteoric. The 12th or 13th of November is the
anniversary of the meteoric displays, which for the
past few yea-s have been so brilliant. Captains and
those at sea have usually the best opportunity to ob
serve them, and we hope from some one to receive a
report. They are most brilliant from midnight till
daybreak. On Thursday night several bright meteors
were observed during the evening.
'Axpctatiox. The Hawaiian who had his feet
frozen, while in the Arctic, on board the whaling
bark Jforman, had both feet taken off above the
ancle, on Wednesday last, at the Queen's Hospital.
The Last Citizens' Mcetin;
i The third adjourned meeting of the citizens on the
lalor question, took place at the Kaumakapili church
on FridHj evening last, of the proceedings of which
weave a necessarily brief synopsis in our issue of
the following mornitijr. The Gazette, of Wednesday
lib, has a garbled ami irujrfi-ct report of the meet
ing, and consequently we deem it proper to put on
ijecord a correct account of what was actually said
nJ done at tbe meeting.
- Col. YA C. Jones, the Chairman of the preceding
meetings, having been called away on business to
another island, Mr. Lintou L. Torbert was called to

it iuc cuair. iu oecreisry, Air. u. o. iijoiis, tutu
a tcuu iuc minutes vi me previous uicciiiitr, wnica
ofv were approved.
A resolution, proposed by Mr. Lyons, was adopted,
to the effect, that no speaker occupy more than
fifteen minutes at one time.
The fifth resolution, which reads as follows, was
then read :
'' Rrsotred, That we do approve of the appnipr at ion of
governmental CuihU In the assistance of l'sciUc lslaudera wtio
t'utue here free ol contract.
JWr. J. O. Carttr observed that there should be
something said, pro or con, about this resolution, as
it involves a recommendation of the expenditure of
nublie moners. raised bv t.iTatinn.
i ttV J) V H'.,L,r, ,,r.n.i ,n o,l.l o t. o.l f
the resolution, the words, as permanent settlers."
.Mr. JMcCotgan inquired whether the Pacific Isl
anders would come here without a contract ? j
Mr. Carter We were told the other evenine bv I
Dr. Hutchison that the Manahikis were but too will
ing to come. The difficulty was to keep them off the
vessel, they were so anxious to come. Uut Mr.
Harris had said at the same meeting, that they
would not come without a contract. Which of these
statements is right?
Jllr. II. Jll. Whitney advocated the passage of the
resolution. He felt greatly interested in this subject
of the repopulation of the islands. But planters
had, throughout these discussions, apparently
ignore! the .South Sea Islanders, and seemed to pre
fer the Chinese coolies. The reed of importing
hither immigrants to supply the places of our rap
idly decreasing native population is evident to all.
He went on to give figures which showed the fearful
rate at which our own people are dying out. Chiuese
do not fill the gap. It is useless to look to Europe,
at least at present ; and the South Sea Islanders are
the cognate nice with ours, and the best available
source to which we can now look to repeople these
fair Lik-s. We want a government policy to brine about a re
pnpulntiun of the country, and the Pno'iflc Islanders are just
the people we need. Let Ihetii be brought here in families ami
be given or leased the waste lands. 1 hey may not at once be
come the laborer on our augur plantatious. but there are
many par uils in which they rould be employed and for which
by bal it tht-y are fitted, a nshine;, for instance. And, by tak
ing the place of Hawaiian fishermen and seamen they would
upp!y in some nieaxure, the demand for more population.
The planters acknowledge them to be good laborers. Read an
extract from His Majesty'a siieech at the opening of the last
Legislature, in which he asked that a scheme be initiated for
brliipin; t.ulti Se Islanders here to increase our population ;
ami also an extract from his address on the close of the ses
sion., thanking the legislature for their action iu appropriating
$3o,Ouo for that purpose. That was an experiment ou a small
scale. It had proved successful, as far as carried out ; and
now was the lime to follow it un. Deprecated the introduction
of any more Chinese coolie unless some provision were made
for them after their terra expired ; and stated the present con
dition of Mauritius, where tticy had large numbers of those
people idle and vicious, whose terms of service had expired.
Cost S150.0UI) per annum to maintain a mllitarr force ia
keep those Unrated coolies in order. There was no chance
mere tor lorein artisans the Chinese there underwork and
monopolize every pursuit. io, too, will it be here before long,
if we are to go ou and import coolies.
The amendment of Mr. Wakeinau was adonted.
j and the resolution passed.
On motion of Mr. Carter, the sixth and seventh
I resolutions were transposed.
I Mr. J. AlcColgnn made statements as to the
, munuer in wJ,ich the present tariff svstem affected
his business that of a tailor. There was $200,000
! ot ready made clothing . imported here an-
' in the country. Argued for protection for our home
industries, by a discriminating tariff. (His remarks
j were listened to with attention, and warmly ap
plauded at the close.)
Mr. Thomas Uuifhes spoke earnestly in favor of a
j protective tariff It had been hinted at a previous
i meeting that he was in favor of coolies because he
owned a plantation. In this tariff business, they
could not accuse him of interested motives, for he
was now out of the business of machiuist ; but he
spoke ironi experience in that business when h said
that protection was necessary for the mechanic. Il
lustrated the way in which the tariff operates. A
shaft imMrtetl for a mill here, paid duty, but a whole mill
buirl in Scotland comes in free of duly. Planters could get
tlteir mills from abroad cheajicr thau the Honolulu Iron Works
could make them. (Mr. Hughes spoke at length and quite en
ergetically on this subject, and concluded bv rcpealins; that a
j protective tarill'w.ui the mechanic's great need.)
Mr. J. O. Curler wished to make a statement
j made to lum by a pvraoo. not present, lletore the
a'lal f, th? Ceylou, with great quantities of keg
shooks, Mr. J. A. Hopper, of the barrel factory, had
j pai,i out jg130 a weekJ wagcs Now Le wa;cQII1.
! pelled to stop work. But before we nrotect the in:m.
ufacture of kegs or any other interest, the question
must be well considered. We have said that we do
not want coolies brought here and the planters feel

amount of money our products imported to the

what that country pays us. A discriminating duty

Mr. C. J. Lyons said This is a question upon
which there is at present no hope of a final so
rption, or agreement of opinion. As it is not a
question of principle, every community bus a right to
settle it for itself. For us it resolves itself into some
thing like this Shall we be willing to pay more for a
large class of articles, for the sake of encouraging in
dustry and morality here instead of somewhere else I
It would. L e,a protective duty, increase prices; it would
also keep among u-i a clcss of worfcius ople whose presence
is an advantage to the community in every way. It would no
doubt encourutce aud assist the Hawaiian native artisan. To
the planter, and to the laborera on the plantations, It Would be
of no particular advantage, aud they should not be expected to
support the measure. The system had certainly helped to
build up tho Northern Slates of America. Now, however,
there were strong efforts making to do way with it there.
They may have a-ed tbe period of protection. Free trade
is prububly the ultimate inw to be adopted by all nations some
time, but there is doubtless a period in the history of many
countries when protection, not too stringent, may be really a
benefit to tbe people. Was willim to s.-e the experiment tried.

7 jir. J. R. Kinney spoke in favor of free trade
Jiiticiples, and illustrated his view of the pernicious
consequences which would result socially from a pro-
tariff. (During this
which was short, the audience quite plainly indicated
their dissent r.tm his views.)
Mr. Jtdderley stated the way in which the present
tariff system operated disadvantageously to the busi
ness in which he was t-ngaged, that of saddle and
harness maker. We have the materials here for a
great enlargement of this business, whereby employ
ment could be given to many of our people. The
Luite t Mates, a large ana powerlul country, nave a
high tarlfl ; we, with a small and poor country, need
it much more. We should, by all proper means, en
courage the industrious of our own people, instead of
sending money out of the country to pay foreign
IMr. Hughes spoke again in favor of a protective
tariff. Water pipes cau be imported here from Scot
land as cheap as we can buy the raw material.
Seventy-five thousand coolies wouldn't do as much
harm to the country, as a protective tariff on the
other hand would do good.
. After some further remarks on the same side from
Messrs. Johnson and Lyons, the sixth resolution was
pased as read.
On the next resolution, (pertaining to the subject
of public lands) Mr. J. O. Carter moved that it be
dropped, as the originator. Col. Jones, who was the
only one prepared to discuss the question, was out
of town ; carried.
The following additional resolution, waa then
offered and passed, nem. con.
That an executive committee of Ave be appointed by the chair
to prepare a petition to tbe next LegisiaUve Assembly, in the
Hawaiian and English languages, embodying these resolutions,
and urging upon that body the consideration of the principles
therein enunciated ; the aaid committee to cause the same to be
circulated fur signatures throughout the islands.
The Chair appointed the following Committee on
aoove: Messrs. it. zi. wmtnev. nm. Johnson.
Lyons, J. A. Hopper, Wm. B. Wrieht,
The resolutions as finally passed were as follows :
1. Resolved, That the immigration into anv conn.
try should be governed by the natural laws of supply
aud demand, and by the advantages which that
country holds forth to settlers and laborers, and not
by governmental interference other than the bestowal
of such sums of money said La such ways as may be
voted by the people.
2. Resolved, That the further introduction into
this country of Chinese coolies is undesirable the
term "coolie" being understood to mean Asiatic
male laborers bound to service for a term of years.
3. Resolved, That as the laws of this kingdom do
especially favor the introduction of such laborers, by
" t wauavw iwr ecrtice, ana Dypro- l
idmg a penal enactment for the enforcement of f
8ucn contracts, it is artnsable that the law to that I
effect be repeaW. !
-i. Resolved, That laws, enforcing contracts to
service by penal cu.ictment, tend to injustice, and
are contrarv to the spirit ot the aee.
6. Resolved. That we do approve of the appro
priation of governmental funds to the assistance
l'acmc Islanders who come here free of coutract, as
6. Resolved, That in consideration of the high
tariffs of our commercial neighbor the United States,
it is expedient for us to devise some means for pro
tecting our own industrial interests in like manner.
7, That an executive committee of five be appoint
ed by the chair, to prepare a petition to the next
Legislative Assembly, in the Hawaiian ana tnglisn
languages, embodying these resolutions, and urging
upon that body the consideration of the principles
therein enunciated ; the said committee to cause the
same to be circulated for signatures throughout the
Mr. Ji'kitnty x-ead the following letter fron Chinese
merchants of Honolulu, which was received with
applause, and ordered to be published with the pro
ceedings of tho meeting :
To tke Citizens of Honolulu, in Public Meeting Assembled:
, We, tub cxoersigxeo, natives of China now resi
dent in Honolulu, feeling with you the great need of
labor in the Hawaiian Islands, desire to express our
sympathy with those of you who are opposed to the
coolie contract system. We heartily oppose the
introduction of coolies here under that system.
Some of the Chinese coolies are very bad men and
criminals. We know our countrymen better than
any one else ; and we believe that a much better
class of men for plantation and other kinds of work
can be procured from China by some arrangement
for tho encouragement of free immigration and the
payirfeut of wages.

NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Items from the Arctic The unwritten history oi
a cruise ou board a whaler in the Arctic Ocean, is
deeply interesting. In conversation with the hardy
seafarers who annually visit our port, after their
northern cruises, the thought forcibly occurs what
an untried field is here open for a bookmaker ! Why
does not some enterprising journal dispatch one of
" our special correspondents " on a whaleship to the
Arctic ? An intelligent observer there could " spin
a yarn that would be far more entertaining than
one half of the now-a-days tales of voyages and
travels. Some of the oldest and most experienced
whalemen predict that whaling in the Arctic will
not pay more than three or four seasons longer. They
say that they never met with an old-fashioned bow-
bead of earlier days, that used to stow down from
200 to 800 barrels, but that the present average will
not exceed 80 barrels apiece young whales. Where
are the big ones T The answer is, killed off long ago,
and the oil and bone taken to New Bedford. Should
the great Polar Sea be reached, about which there is
so much said, it may be that there will be found the
last resort of the poor bowhead his bo far safe re
treat from the lance of the insatiate whaleman.
Walrus appear plentiful this season, and ha the early
part, before the whalers made their appearance, a
number of ships made a business of taking them for
their oil. They make on an average, 25 gallons each,
and tbe tusks are wortu about Yb cents a pound.
Polar bears have been seen pretty often, and quite a
number killed for their skins the only available
thing anout tuem.
Staxd bt Your Couktet. The following para
graph is clipped from a late Kuropean mail
"The Harvard men are of the best f.unilles of Massachusetts
Although one of them nominally hails' from the Samlwhich
Islands, it is undentnod that this is due to an accidental mi-
grutiou of his lather there but three or four years since, and,

No doubt the Oxford four fairly beat the Harvard
four, all honor to the victors and the vanquished,
but the joy consequent upon their victory was
heightened from the fact that they beat Massachusetts
men, and still more that they beat men who could
claim a descent which connected them with Plymouth
"Ay call it holy ground.
The soil Where lirst they trod,
They liave left uuataiued what there they found
Freedom to worship God."
Poor old Plymouth Rock, England can never for
give it. So anxious was Oxford to beat four of the
sons of the Pilgrim Fathers, that they determinedly
rob us, of Hawaii nci, of one-fourth of that glorious
defeat, by claiming for Massachusetts, in a most
questionable way, a son of Hawaii. Think of it, that
the father of young Lyman accidently migrated
here but three or four years since, and as a conse- I
quence his son "nominally hails'" from these
islands. We don't believe that story. And here let
us take occasion to say that our New York corres
pondent, in a letter, slurred the Puritans, and that
it escaped'our observation. We repudiate such sen
Reciprocity Not the treaty, which was killed by
the Foreign office, but that which exists between this
city and Lahaina. Captain Cluney of the clipper
schooner Jellie Merrill, made a statement in our
hearing the other day, which, while it spoke volumes
for his vessel, suggested other thoughts. He has or-
ders from parties at Lahaina to carry them beef-
steaks from this city, and from parties in this city
for fresh bread from Lahaina, in which it is said jthat
place excels. For sixteen successive trips he carried I
steaks from here and landed them in time to make a
dinner for the Lahaina folks. Our inter-island
steam service cannot claim for- itself much greater
regularity and dispatch. But how Lahaina has de-
generated ! Time was when it boasted its commission
houses, its fleet of recruiting whleships, its markets,
artisans, tradesmen, and in fact all that goes to the
make up of a town, and it was styled the " second
city " of the Kingdom, now fallen when it is com
pelled to send to us for fresh beef. The population
will not warrant the killing of a whole beef. What
has crushed Lahaina ? The whaling fleet or sugar ?
And the question comes before us seriously are we

Dangerous. A bullock landed from the schooner
Marilda yesterday morning, was loose on the Es-
planade, and seeing the horse and carriage of one of
our citizens, charged headlong at the horse, striking
it fairly on the breast, both horns fortunately missing
the horse. Had the horse been at all skittish, the
lives of the occupants would have been endangered.
The Minister of the Interior or some other persoa
will suffer serious damage yet, and then somebody
will get the full extent of the law. Our advice
would be to apply the law now and save somebody's
life or limb.
The next Mail. It is somewhat doubtful whether
any mail will be received here before the steamer,
due on the 21st. Several vessels were loading for
China, among them the bark Singapore and ships
Galatea and Kingfisher, but there is no certainty of
their touching here or bringing any mail matter.
They would leave about the end of October, and if
they touch, would be due about the 15th.

riving at this port in distress and being compelled to
discharge cargo, which it is well to put on recordl

forty natives, the guano sacked on board and cartetl
from the wharf to the storehouses, at a cost altogether!

rVExrn or G. B. Ukeke. On Sunday the 21th ult.
Ukeke died at his house at Kahano, Koolaul
loa. He was born iu 1813, at Punaluu, an.
has all his life, been identified, with the social an
political interests of that district. After the death i
Kaleohauo Opio, with whom he lived, be was sent
school to Mr. Jmcrson at naiaiua. ana receive
the usual common school education of this country
He became a school master, a church member,
by reason of his popularity iu his district, was sen
as a representative, to the Parliaments of 1851 and 6'J
From this commencement of his political careen
he was several times returned to the Legislature
and was a member of the Convention of 1864. Hi
last service was in the Assembly of 18C6. Ukeke'
record as an orator, is one of eccentricity of though!
and speech, ana whatever may nave been the value
force of his arguments, they were put in such a fanta-i
tical way, that he alwas secured listeners among In
fellow members. When about to die, he requestc
tnat no ' waning " thould be done over nis bod.v
that the grief of his neigbors and friends should fin
expression only in the use of hymns and prayers.
I.voF.xiors if not LvGEM'ors. It is amusing t
see to what shifts the Gazette reporter of the citizen
meeting of October 23d resorted, in order to mak
the most of a sore defeat. One or two of the
speeches are slurred over by an extract or two
what the speaker did say, and then much more sp:
is devoted to an account of what he did not say. 11
contain what each speaker did not say would exbau
the columns of a larger paper than the Gazett,
even though all its space was devoted. The simp
way would bo to refer all who wish to know what tlx
speakers against the "coolie system " and kindn
topics uia net say, to tbe sfteecbes of Messrs. Lav
anu uuoucs, as containing Dotn tne written ai
the unwritten law on the subject.
