To the Editor of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser:
Sir : I have much pleasure in commending ier
highly the general purport cf your editorial article
of last Saturday, pressing upon the government the
urgent need of devoting its attention to tho re-population
of these Ulands and of diminishing our expen
All nations need at all times the best government
they can get. Were we a populous and thriving
country, we still should need to be led by able and
honorable men. But now that we are a dying na
tion in a desperate condition, keeping our name and
statu only by sufferance amid painful questionings
whether our independence can postiibly be maintain
ed, the laissez-faire system cf the present govern
ment can only be regarded with grave condemnation.
But let us be careful and just. Possibly not all the
blame is due to the Ministers, but part of it to the
system under which they work. And this brings
me to comment upon a portion of your article, from
which, while I oordially commend the rest, I most
emphatically dissent. You suggest that the num
ber of Ministers be reduced, and that the King gov
ern with the advice cf the privy Council. I read
" That it has ier properly been the course generally
pursued during the last and the present reigns, to
seek that advice instead of proceeding upon minis
terial responsibility alone." This means, in ether
words, our government whilo nominally constitu
tional and representative, has really been for the
most part personal and despotic. To give but a sin-
ta nrrw.f nf thia naflprf inn Karnchflnipll A V.. cf ilia
own free will, and without consultinz his Minister
trrehanl. abolished the constitution. Thi. State cf
things is a great evil, but you, whcni I fully credit
with the best inteutions, propose to make it worse.
And you excite a smile when you expect " person
of character and ability could be found who would
nominally hold the ministerial offices that are pro
posed to be abolished." No doubt persons could be
found to act as figure-head Ministers; but I think
that men cf ability and character would not be found
The plan proposed by you is altogether retrograde.
I beg te offer one more in accordance with th usage
of constitutional governed countries. Let our gov
ernment cease to be personal and become constitu
tional. Let the King choose a Premier, the best man
he can find, to hold the portfolio cf the Interior cr
Foreign Department. Let bim be responsible for all
the measures cf government. Let bim appoint hi
colleague to the other three offices, men whom be
trusts, and with whom he can work. Let the King
abstain from all direct share in government, except
the exercise cf the Royal Veto, at the request of the
Ministry. J Personal government is rarely tolerable
to a free people, eien when the monarch has been
ities. But when the king has come to the throne by
inheritance or any other reason than that cf great
qualifications, it is evident that the only safe system
of government is that where the King govern by his
Ministers, t In such a case his own busioet-s ia before
all things to set a noble example to his subjects, and
take the lead in promoting works cf social improve
ment, and to choose for Premier the man whom the
popular voice, expressed by the best part cf the com
munity, proclaims as the fittett.
We need a man cf ability to save the country.
There is much good intention and thought in cur
... a , a e a
community. Combined ana organized it wouu ei-
fect much good work, but now it lies useless for
want cf a head to gather it together and shape it
into noble order. Oo future occaaions I hope to en
large on this great subject.
Meanwhile I would urge upon all who desire the
welfare cf our state and city, who pray that " peace
may-be within her walls, and prosperity within her
palaces," to bring their minis to bear upon the sub
jects cf repopulation and better government; and use
thirhMit influence to brinz thera abou. It i a
popular remark now-a-days that government can
but give effect to the voice cf the people; that a the
people are, uch are the rulers. Is it possible that a
society cut up into cliques and sects, self-seeking and
indifferent to the higher interests, can support a gov
ernment of noble and fir-seeing statesmen T I cur
political fountain so pure that we can expect sweet
waters to flow out cf it ? Can the nation be saved T
Must it fall by its own corruptiou and internal weak
ness ? I fear much ; but would fsin " be persuaded
better things cf you, brethren, and things that ac
company salvation, though I thus speak."

would hang about our bouse half a day in tht bopt

all food ia highly valued by tht native. They bait
no taro. A lew breadfruit tree art in tht bush, but

No ont coming bert thould be dependent at all on
