ol men among l,'u eubj -cts. In the exercise there

men as in Lis judgment will best assist 'him in
carrying out his policy of government, all loyal
subjects will give His Majesty the credit of hav

Doubtless tLere are many in the community who
imagine they could have made better selections in
the making up of a Cabinet it would Ie strange
if it were not eo; but fortunately they were not
called upon to chooso fjT the King.- To hear
some of these w iseacres, one would imagine that
the proper thing would be to submit the election
of a Ministry to the jvpular vote, or to a show
ing r f handd on the street corners. That some
have been ' surprised and disappointed " at the
formation of the Ministry, is unquestionably true;
but these adjectives will not do justice to the sub
ject. Instead of surprised, read shocked, as by
an electric battery ; and in the place of disap
pointed, read plunged in a gulf of dark despair."
With such ycrsons, to whose imaginations Aliio
lani House has presented the pleasing and hope
ful theatre of future quiet but deep jobbery and
lucrative preferment through the judicious mani
pulation of various wires, the consummation of
the new Cabinet must have impinged upon the
senses after the manner of an earthquake, or a
clap of thunder out of a clear sky. Like the lost
spirits described by Milton :

SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 7.
THE RE-CONSTRUCTED CAB
last Saturday p. He was pleased to make the
following Ministerial appointments:

M1M3TER or Interior,
I r Vi. L. Moehonua.
' R. II. Stanley.
The general public was not apprized of the new
appointment until Monday morning, when the
announcement was received with very general
satisfaction. The subject of a reconstruction of
the Cabinet had been for several weeks past in
every mind and oo every tongue, and very natu
rally a good deal of Solicitude bad been felt and
expressed as to who were the coming men in the
administration of the Government. This attitude
of suspense on the part of the public mind has
now happily changed into one of satisfaction at
the result. The somewhat delicate task which
devolved upon Ilia Majesty in the formation of a
Cabinet, nnder all the circumstances, has devel
oped the qualities of sound judgment and tact, as
well as a genuine regard for the best interests of
In the present arrangement of the Cabinet it
will be observed that Mr. Green returns to the post
to which he was appointed on II is Majesty's acces
sion that of Minister of Foreign Affairs ; and that
Mr. Stanley also retains the position of Attorney
The two new men now called to office, are J
S. Walker, Esq., in the position of Minister of
Finance, and Major Moehonua in that of the
Mr. Walker baa been for a number of years
intimately connected as a merchant with the bus
iness interests of these Islands, and more partic
ularly with those of plantations. In this regard
be has probably done more to develop our agri
coltural resources, in promoting and fostering
new enterprises, than any other man among us ;
and, as is not infrequently the case, he has helped
others on the highroad to fortune and wealth
while remaining behind himself. His sound
judgment in business and financial matters is
universally conceded, and his familiar acquaint
ance with our needs in the way of material de
velopment, together with his spirit of enlightened
enterprise, will render him an invaluable adviser
of the King. He is a Scotchman by birth but an
American by adoption, and long a resident of one
of the Western States of the American Union.
In the appointment once more of a native Ha
waiian to a position in the Cabinet, His Majesty
ias recognixwJ a principle for which we have
always contended ever since the days of the Ka
mehamehas that whenever possible to do so,
native Hawaiian should be selected for the higher
as. well as the subordinate offices of Government.
Major Moelicnua is a gentleman in every sense of
the word, highly intelligent and well educated in
bis own language, and extremely popular among
h countryraeo and foreigners as well. His
appointment t ) the important office of Minister of
the Interior will contribute materially to the
the Treasury who is familiar with financial ques
tions. Ihe department of the Interior however,
which is iu every respect a very important one, is
that in which tho great majority of native busi
ness is transacted, from one end of the inlands to the
other. The fact that the head of that department
is a native Ilawaiian, will undeniably have the
effect among the people at large to inspire a feel
ing of confidence in the administration of govern
ment that would not otherwise cxift. Iu the
proposed abwencc from the country of His Majesty,
the necessity of securing and maintaining the
sentiment of trust and confidence in those at the
head of affairs will be even more apparent than
ever. e believe tr.at the recent appointment or
a highly respected and prominent rmtive gentle
man to the office of Minister of the Interior will
have that effect on the native mind, instead of
tending " to foster public distrust," as the Gazelle
asserts, uut that lournal speaks or pretends to
speak for a Email fraction only of the foreign
population of the country, ignoring altogether
the oO.OOO native Hawaiians.
While we endorse the new Cabinet appoint
ments as wise and proper, and freely accord to
Ministers the honest intention of performing their
respective duties with faithfulness and for the
advancement of the public interests, and are
therefore desirous that they 6hall have a fair trial
it is however our province as public journalists
to scan with critical eye their every public act, j

l'iid.-r Section i of the Act in question their
approval ia necessary to enable the Minister o
Finance to negotiate the loan, or any -onion o
it, in any foreign country, or to dispose of the
ilonds; and they may authorize the expenditure
of moneys for " the building of warehouses for
the reception of produce, and for the promotion
of steam navigation." But the consent of the
iSoarl would seem to be quite unnecessary in the
matter of warehouses, inter-i.-land steam naviga
tion and immigration, seeing that the Legielature
has specifically appropriated for these objects, the
sums respectively of 17,000, .410,000, and $50,-
000. The actual duties of the Hoard therefore,
are circumscribed to the negotiation of the pro
posed loan of a million of dollars, which, if ob
tained, can only be expended under specific ap
propriation by the Legislature.
"If there be one who seeka to obstruct it, Reel
procity or to hinder the negotiation in any way,
let him keep silence or ask for a ticket of leave.'

The above is clipped from a Bhort editorial in
the Gazette of this week, and judging from the
gush" of its style must have been penned
before the announcement was received of the re
construction of the Cabinet, moreover, as near by
wo are told by the editor that " the Cabinet, as
reconstructed, fails to meet public expectation,
and will tend to foster public distrust." And
this again reads rather oddly, in close juxtaposi
tion with the further remark that, " The Cabinet
having been reorganized and remodeled, we trust
that it will take bold of the great work now
before tho country in right earnest."" Further
along, wc are treated to an article on Canadian
Reciprocity," the effect of which on renders here
is to apply a wet blanket to our own kindling aspi
rations in that direction. Thus we find this
motlcy-6ided editor, first by trying to incite public
distrust in the King's Cabinet, and second by
parading the arguments of two American poli
ticians against reciprocity, seeking to throw ob
stacles in the way of a measuro of vital national
importance; and thereby supplying himself the
most conclusive reasons why he should cither
keep silence or ask for a ticket of leave.' "

The long list of Hawaiian-born youths who
are now being educated in tL United States, as
recently published in the papers of this city,
rather forcibly illustrates the intimate nature of
oar relations with that country. Here are some
sixty young persons, mostly of the nak; sex, born
and nurtured in these tropical iiles of the sea,
and which they must ever regard as their '.dear
native land," but who, educated in America,
will be quite sure to regard that land as the
mother country," in much the same sense that
the Australian-born Briton regards old England.
And indeed, the moral and social ties that bind us
to the United States, though not so tangible as
those of trade and commerce, which we are new
endeavoring to increaee and strengthen, are
everthelessquite as real and lasting, and will exert
a marked "influence opon our future destiny.
The names and the associations of Harvard, and
Yale, and Amherst, id omne, will become as
household words, not around our firesides, but

be AXNorxcmEXT was made yesterday that in
Privy Council on Thursday ln6t His Majesty had
'appointed the Hons. Godfrey FJiodes, J. Mott
Smith, and S. P. Kalama, as a Committee of that
jBody to act in conjunction with the Cabinet in
carrying out the provisions oi tne Act to autnor
izo a National Ixan, passed at the late session of
the Legislature. As to the duties which will de
volve upon the Board of Finance thns constituted,
and the powers which they will possess, in the
event of the proposed loan being obtained, it ap
pears to our comprehension that the general pub
lic have been in error, an error however which it
was very natural to fall into, without having
given the subject a thorough consideration. And
the terms of the Act itself, in the Cth section,
appear to be explicit and conclusive enough, if
we look no farther, aa to the very important
powers conferred on the Bird. We quote :
And be it further enacted, that whereas the loan
by this Act authorized is intended for the pajaient of
the existing national debt whenever the same may
become due, and the assistance of the agricultural
and other productive interests of the country, there

on machinery, whether home made or imported;"
kc , Sic.
These provisions, it will be observed, contem
plate a great deal of work for tho Board, in the
wav of no20tiatinz Kians to those in need of
them, connected with which there would be all
the time, the labor and the necessary expense of
examining titles, viewing croi. stock or mate
rial which it may le desired to pledge as security
for the money to be borrowed. A moment s con
sideration will show the magnitude of the labor
which this would involve, and that the proposed
Board, under such circumstances, would leconie
a m6t important body, and in fact the most im
portant branch of the government, in a financial
way. It would then be a matter of grave con
sideration as to who were the individuals into
whose hands was to be committed such extensive
powers. 2sot but that a system of advances by
government on the products of our plantations
would be highly advantageous and proper .after
the practice followed in some other countries ;
but the system which would grow up under the
section now in review, would require a great
deal of very careful attention and management.
But here the question arises, will the Minister
of Finance be authorized by law to pay out any
monies on the order of the Board thus constituted ,
under the Loan Act ? We are most clearly of the
Local Option in California.
It will be remembered that recently the Legislature
cf California passed a law, giving the people of each
separate township the right to deciJe at the polls
whether the sale of intoxicating drinks should be al
lowed or not. During the summer, the elections took
place nnder this law throughout the state, resulting
in much .excitement in many townships where the
contest between the Prohibitionists and their oppo
nents was close, and some disgraceful scenes were
witnessed, in which rowdyism was rampant. Bat
the weight of public opinion in California is no doubt
against the Prohibition principle, although very
many townships voted against license by respectable
majorities. A test case was taken to the Sapreroe
Court, and on the 2$ih of September, that tribunal,
in long opinion, which appears in full in the news
papers, declared the Local Option Law unconstitu
tional. The decision was rendered by Judge McKin
stry. Judges Wallace and Niles concurring, and
Rhodes and Crocket dissenting. The decision Is
based on the point that the Legislature has no power
to delegate its function of making laws. This, for
the present at least, would appear to be th end of an
agitation which, however laudable in itself, was be- j
lieved by many temperance people to be misdirected, j
The strong temperance sentiment however survives j
the death of Local Option, and is steadily growing, i
It was an evidence of a great moral progress that :
such a law should not only be passed by the Legisla- j
ture of the Stats, but should have received the en
dorsement of so many cities-and villages. The opin
ion of the press is, that as a result of this sentiment,
California will get a really valuable temperance law.

From the Friend for NoTenibcr.J
Reciprocity will Enrich American Mer
chants and Ship Owners.
It is taken for granted that a Reciprocity Treaty
will prove beneticial to sugar planters and all
others residing upon the Islands, both natives and
foreigners, though we are inclined to think, that
the golden harvest will not prove quite so abun
dant as some Imagine. Respecting. bowev?r tho
Erofit to American merchants and ship owners, we
avo no doubt. A few day ago, we were coming
ahore Irom the U. S. S. JJeuicia, and the officer
sitting by our side remarked, as we were admiring
a trim newly painted and handsome American bri
gantine about to sail for Oregon. that craft U

running ueiwuen Honolulu ana an l-rancisco.
Now there is a Pmall fleet of sugar and lumber
vessels plying between the islands and the coat
There is no doubt these vessels are running most
prutitably lor merchants and ship owners. As the
officer remarked " these vessels are coining money
lor ineir owners."
Now, wo argue that a Reciprocity Treaty will
increase tenfold the number of these barks, brigs
tnid schooners flying like shuttles between the
Hawaiian Inlands and the western coast of America,
the natural market for our sugars, rice, bananas,
ana others products, while our islands form a
market for manufactures and products of the United
StaU-slLast -year 1S73 according to Custom
IT6'use""TVtiirn8, these islands exported to the
United States products to the value of $1,139,-
2o.p1, while imports from the Lnited States
amounted to $529,082.08. Reciprocity would
quicken trade, multiply vessels laden with pro
ducts of each country, and enrich not only the
Hawaiian islands, but merchants and ship owners
on the coa&w What the East India Islands are to
Europe and the West India Islands to the Atlantic
States, the Ilawaiian Islands will prove to the Pa
cific Coast of America, if commerce is increased
and our products find a good market. How can
we buy goods unless our products find a good
market? For two hundred and more years the
cities of the United States on the Atlantic Coast
have been trading profitably with Cuba. Jamaica,
and other neighboring islands. Portland. Boston,
New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and others
cities have grown rich from trade with those is
lands. San Francisco, Portland and others derive
similar beneGts and profits from a quickened trade
with the Ilawaiian Islands.
