The RMS Australia was confidently looked for during
Thursday, but her non-arrival is considered confirmatory of
the report brought by the Bonanza, to the effect that the Com

questions, as to the pecuniary and other results of a direct

said the Australia had a full freight.

Koxa, IIawaii, July I8th, 1877.
Ma. Editor: In your issue of June 23d, you
speak of the unusual high price of the Hawaiian
staff of life " pol." The same remark may be
applied to this, and other sections of this Island.
It appears from all accounts, that the want of the
Hawaiian staff of life, has been more severely felt
this year, than for many years past, especially in
tbe districts of Kohala, Kan and Kona nei : the
price being a hundred, or a hundred and fifty per
cent higher, than was ever known before, and,
consequently, as in Ilonolulu, the people, both
foreigners and natives, are driven to the necessity
of subsisting on the Chinese staff of life" rice."
For instance, we meet with natives from Kekaha,
and ask them what they find to subsist on in
that section T they invariably answer rice. Again,
we meet with other parties who live some 25 miles
In an opposite direction, when the same question
is asked, and they answer rice. But many of
the natives are too poor to be able to afford them
selves such a luxury as rice, consequently, they
are obliged to subsist on fruits, such as mangoes,
bananas, pine apples, mountain apples or obias
Ac, this being tbe season when 8Hch fruits rinen.
Other natives subsist on ki root, hapu, pala, and
preen or unripe pumpkins
For the past month, we have been blessed by
many reiresuiug buowera, ana tne lace oi
earth is wearing a beautiful mantle o
vegetation ana proauce generally, is in a very
flourishing and thriving condition, and there is
every proppect that in a few months more, the
native staff of life will
be plentiful, -So mote

Adtices from Honolulu state that the desire
to enarage in the cultivation of sugar cane
has become a perfect furore, and that clerks
professional men. ana in tact individuals of
almost every class are taming their attention
to an industry wnicn nas made the fortunes of
tnose engaged in it. as an Instance of the ex
citement ruling, it may be mentioned that a half
interest in one plantation nas been sold for $500 -
vuv, auu. iuo purcuaacr is congraiuiaiea upon
the prospect of becoming a millionare, while
other planters are represented to be actually
coining money out of their crops. The main
cause of this sadden access of properity is the
reciprocity treaty with the United States, and
for its negotiation tne Hawaiian Minister of
Foreign Affairs is extolled beyond measure, and
an eternal debt of gratitude is said to be due to
him from the Hawaiian kingdom for hia states
manship as evinced in that beneficent measure.
Bat still the Jiawauans are not happy. The
sources of wealth revealed to them are incapable
of being developed to their full extent without
an additional supply of labor, and more l&bor.
or at least more agricultural labor, is the chief
thought In their minds. The Government has
resolved upon sending a Diplomatic Envoy to
London in furtherance of a scheme for introdncing
families oi ast Indians, ana tne Hoard or A. mi
gration is about to send to China for a supply
of coolies, while it is farther in contemplation
to encourage the emigration of white working
men and their iamuies by grants or land and
other Inducements. We heartily wish our neigh
bors in the facinc islands ail success in tbe
extension of their sugar-planting interest, and
only hope they will not lose sight, in the ex
citement of new-found wealth, of the prudence
which has hitherto characterized their exertions
to develoo tbe field opened to them by unres
tricted commerce with the United States. If
iter do not overdo things, there is not only
the possibility but tbe probability of a trade with
aa Francisco far greater than was ever dreamt

to be felt. They will find here a ready market

SATURDA Y. JULY 28.
OUR TAX LAWS.
On Saturday la6t a meeting of merchants
and others was held at the room of the
Honolulu Chamber of Commerce, to take into
consideration the subject of the new law passed
hw the last legislature wherebv a svstem of
J --o "
double taxation is imposed. The law in ques
tion is comprised in Sections 483 and 484 of the
Civil Code, as amended, which read as follows :
" Section 483. All personal property of whatever kind, not
subject to apecific taxes, or specially exempted from taxation,
shall be auiject to an annual tax of three-quarters of one per
cent, upon the full cash valuation thereof. The term " per
sonal property " shall be conatrned to include all household
furniture, goods anJ chattels, wares and merchandise, all
ships and vessels whether at home or abroad, all moneys,
notes of hand, unsecured debts, growing crops, public stocks,
stocks in corporations, and every species of property not in
duced in real estate."
" Section 484. There shall be assessed and collected upon
all real property within the Kingdom, not specially exempted
from taxation, an annual tax of three-quarters of one per cent,
on the full cash value of the same, to be assessed in the dis
trict where situated irrespective of any mortgage. The term
" real property " with respect to the assessment and collection
of revenue, shall be deemed to include all lands and town lots,
with the buildings, structures, and other things erected on, or
affixed to the same."
It will.be evident upon reading these sections,
that no owner of " notes of hand, unsecured
debts, growing crops, public stocks or stocks in
corporations," can expect the assessor to omit
any of those items of property, and also owners
of real estate may rely with certainty on
that species of property receiving its assess
ment " irrespective of any mortgages." Whether
this kind of taxation is authorized by the Con
stitution or not, is a question which only the
Supreme Court is competent to answer ; and
until tbe plain requirements of the law are held
by that tribunal to be repugnant to the constitu
tion, the duty of the assessors and of tbe Min
ister of Finance is to execute the law aa it
For instance, the law taxes real estate as
well as notes of hand at its full cash value,
without deduction by reason of mortgages.
Stocks in corporations are taxable to their holder
. r 11 a. a.
or owner, at meir tun vaiue, wuuout iirss
deducting from the entire market value of the
real estate owned by the corporation.
A solution of the difficulty which has been
suggested is, for the Ministers to take the re
sponsibility of exempting mortgaged property
from taxes to the extent of its encumbrances,
and to order the assessors not to assess stock, or
else to omit corporation real estate. But the
objection to this course is that it would be
more unconstitutional than the statutes them
selves, of which we complain, could possibly be ; -
for Ministers are authorized to execute, not to
set aside the lawB, and it is not for them to say
that any duly enacted statute is void.
Tbe questions which will be raised are intri
cate and important ; they have received consid
eration in the courts of California, with varying
results, for several years. The " Political Code"
of that etate (1872) under the head of "defini
tions," has the following: "The term 'real
estate1 includes the ownership of, claim to, pos
session of, or right to tbe possession of laud."
" The term improvements includes all
buildings, structures, fixtures, fences, and im
provements erected upon or affixed to the land."
All fruit, nut bearing or ornamental trees and
vines, net of natural growth." " The term
full cash value ' means the amount at which
the property would be appraised if taken in pay
ment of a just debt due from a solvent debtor.
Section 3640 of the same Code reads as fol
lows : lhe owner or bolder of 6tock in any
firm or corporation, tbe entire capital or pro
perty whereof is assessed, mu6t not be assessed
individually for his 6tock in such firm or corpora
tion." This last is a provision which enunciates
the principle now contended for here, to wit, that
the same property cannot be assessed twice : and
to avoid complications in the future its tenor
should be incorporated in our civil code, as soon
as may be.
subject of our tax laws.
Since our remarks on capital punishment in
our last issue, wo have noticed a singular article
referring to this queetion, in tbe Bvllelin of San
Francisco, which comments upon some curious
enquiries of a writer in the Chicago Times on
the circumstances attending all the executions
that have taken place in the United States from
the commencement of this year to tbe date of
that writing. The whole number of executions
for tbe half Year just elapsed in tbe United
States was 37 in all, not including those of the
0 ' Molly Maguires " lately hanged in Penn
sylvania. The object of the writer in fh,e
Chicago Times i8, to Bhow, by tbe demeanor of
those 37 criminals, that hanging has no terrors
for most criminals, as all died in the belief that
they were to go straight to Paradise, save one
wretch, William Meeks, of Georgia, who was
convicted of adultery and murder, and had to be
carried to the drop, but spoke freely and sensi
bly. The 36 others died game," says the
Times writer. George Williams, colored, of
Georgia, convicted of killing his son, said on the
scaffold : "I am a soldior of the cross, and feel
resigned to die. I am innocent of the crime,
and feel my way clear to glory." Simon Rag-
land, colored, of North Carolina, convicted of
rape, said that " as soon as bis soul left hiB
body, be would fly straight to heaven." Three
were executed for killing their wives; ten for
robbery and murder ; three for murder and out
rage. In the Northern States, the executions
were for murder exclusively. No women were
executed amongst the 37 cases of hanging. ' The
writer concludes that hanging has little or no
effect on those executed, nor on the class of peo
ple who go to witness the executions, arguing
from the circumstances attending these 37 execu
tions. The absurdity of banging a man who
thinks that thereby he is being sent off straight
to heaven, is set forth by the writer, as well as
the effect likely to be produced on the minds- of
criminals or evil doers who may happen to wit
ness Buch a spectacle. Haneine is strint of it
terrors by the real or assumed calmness of tbe
criminals. Tbe man who is hanged seemingly
dies as happily as tbe greatest Baint, and the
vicious crowd who witness or hear of the execu
tion say, " The murderer who was banged died
happy ! what more do we want ? we must all die
somehow, and it appears that a fellow can die as
happily on the scaffold as in his bed," or words
to that effect. So that banging becomes a farce,
whether as a punishment of the criminal, or a
means of deterring others from crime. Our
own concluding remarks are echoed by the wri
ter in the Bulletin, who says :
Beyond question the worst use to which a man
can be put is to hang him. Bat if executions have
little or so terrors for tnose who are the central fin-
urea in them, and still less for those who witness
them and for whose moral improvement ther are
designed, it may be questioned whether it is alto
gether right that they should be continued. Im
prisonment for life ought to have a more restraining
influence on the vicious than those ecstatic gallows
scenes, in which the expiring culprit is usually
iransiormea into an ascending angel."
If a vicious horse throws his rider and breaks
his neck, we do not generally shoot tbe brute ;
tat try to utilize him, in soma way whew he I
cannot again repeat the mischief. So, as regards
tbe murderer, many people think that he ought
to be utilized, not destroyed. This is a natural
view of the case, distinct from the supernatural
view which we put forward in our last issue.
We proceed to comment upon capital punish
ment from this practical point of view. A crim
inal is under sentence of death in Oahu jail.
His crime has cut him off from all sympathy
from hia fellow beings, except perhaps tbe min
ister of the gvpel, and good christians generally,
with whom, however, we have nothing to say
just at present. We merely ask: what ought
to be done with this wretch hang him, or
utilize him ? By not banging him, we 'get over
the queetion as to whether human society is jus
tified at all under any circumstances in executing
a human being for any crime whatever. Let us
suppose, then, that instead of hanging this
criminal, it is decided to let him live and to
utilize him, aB is done with other criminals, by
making him work all the days of bis life. Is
there any room to doubt that the life-long toil
and labor of this criminal as a hopeless convict
is a heavier punishment for him than a sudden
death by strangulation? Such a life is a real
punishment, whereas hanging involves and
solves, we suppose, the great mystery for all
men whether a future state exists, which the
firm conviction of 3G murderers dying on the
scaffold as confident of future happiness as the
greatest saint, is calculated to upset. The bur
den of life is felt by all, even in the Happiest
conditions, and many people even seek to get rid
of life by suicide. To punish the murderer,
then, tbe best plan is to make him Icel the Dur-
den of life, as a condemned felon, till the end of
his days, be they long or short, without one ray
of hope of what wo call human happiness ever
again enlivening his doom. While be lives, he can
be utilized. Here, half a dollar per diem is paid
to government for the labor of the jail convicts.
Allowing 300 working days in the year, we have
$150 a year to the account of government for a
convict's annual labor ; and allowing that the
murderer in question in Oahu goal, now about
25 years of age should live to the age of 00 years,
in 35 years bis labor as a convict would fetch
the sum of $5250 to the treasury, besides its
value to the country likewise, and amply repay
the cost of his support. Thirty-five years
of hard work represents a vast amount of im
provement to any society. This is the way to
utilize a murderer, and also to punish him with
a life-long bondage and toil. But, by hanging
the wretch, society is guilty of the very crime,
in our opinion, for which he is put to death, that
is, murder legal, judicial murder and what does
it gain thereby ? No greater security for human
life, nor any higher respect for its legal and judi
cial institutions, whose justice is called into
question by what appears to be an undue
assumption of a prerogative which belongs to
God alone !

Swindling the Government. Mr. Jackson
Scboltz is a blunt, plain-spoken man. Ia his remarks
yesterday before the Custom Hoase conference, on
the subject of frauds on tbe Government, he said
that hardly any man ever went to Europe and re
turned without smuggling. He placed the average
number of packages at ten or twelve apiece. We
are. be said, males and females alike, a nation of
smugglers. He had known ladies cf good family,
some of them wives of ministers, to hide watches in
old shoes and laces among soiled linen. On his last
trip among bis ship companions were four members
of Congress who did not pay tbeir duties. A credi
ble United States detective once informed him that
he traced a camel's hair shawl that had been smug
gled over the border to the wife of a J udge of an
Eastern State and recovered it. Mr. SchulU's re
medy would be to allow every passenger one trunk
or package, to be examined on arrival, all the others
to go to the pnblio stores. The suggestion of Mr.
Schultz is a good one. It would have the effect of
stopping, to a certain extent the enormous frauds
practiced upon the government by the most re
spectable members of society. It would not only
have the effect of making people more honest, but
it would discourage American snobbery from going
abroad to patronize French milliners and English
tailors. The Government is swindled every year
in the most outrageous manner by people who juake
the greatest pretensions to honesty and repectabili
ty. It is high time to arrest this monstrous
i evil. JV. Y. Com. Adv. t
