a ben one day this week that measured 8 by 7 in
ches. To preserve the shell as a cariosity, the esrz
was perforated and the contents withdrawn, when
it was found that there was another egg inside, with
a perfect shell, and about the size of an rdiaary
pullet's egg. The hen that performed this extra
ordinary feat (she is said to b a " Drama Pootra")
was probably moved thereto by the fact thatieggs
are exorbitantly high in price at present. . Or. per
haps she was thinking of double taxation.

w CoxTiHOTiojr or Kisa . Strsxt. Last Thursday
p. m., a jury of six tax payers of this district, select
ed according to the statute in such case made and
provided, accompanied by the Minister of the Inte
rior, the Boad Supervisor and the Chief Clerk of the
Interior Department, proceeded to view the proposed
route for the continuation of King street to Kapio
lani Park. The jury consisted of Messrs. S. C. Allen,
Frank Brows, S. B Dole, E. C. Damon, A. S. Cleg
horn and H. L. Sheldon. The route of the proposed
road has been surveyed by Mr. Emerson, and the
jary in their report to the Minister recommend that
the road be built ia accordance with the survey, and
that work thereon be commenced as soon as practic
able. No serious engineering obstacles were en
countered along the route, which measures a little
over a mile and a half from Judge McCully's resi
dence to the northern edge of the park. The road
when completed will be sixty feet wide, and if plant
ed on either side with monkey-rod, algaroba or inga
trees, will make a delightful axive a desideratum
the want of which has long been felt ia Honolulo.
The visit of the jurors to the park showed that the
young trees are coming forwurd satisfactorily, the
race track is handsomely covered with green turf,
and altogether the appearance of the place IsxrediU

abont the establishment of a school wherein to teach
the Maori children the language and customs of the
English : and that be would like to see the Maoris
as far advanced in civilisation under British rale,
as the Hawaiians undoubtedly are under their own
native king. Maori labourers with their wives
and children would be welcome at the Hawaiian Isles

The fourteenth day of last October was fraught
with the highest political importance for the chival
rous land of La Belle France. The day in ques
tion, it is scarcely necessary to recall, was that ap
pointed for the holding of general elections of Depu
ties to sit in the French Legislative Assembly, a
consequence of President MacMahon's late dictato
rial policy. ; A London' telegram xf October 18 con
veys the intelligence that a communication in the
Prris gives the result of the French elections as fol
lows: " Out of 533 Deputies, tnere are 835 Repub
licans and 198 government nominees. ' The latter
consist of Bonapartists, 40; Legitimists. 63; Con
servatives, 90. Many of the official candidates are
expected to be unseated by the Election Committee,
probably raising the Republican majority to 140.
The Prefects have been summoned to Paris to receive
instructions respecting the second balloting. There
is no indication that Ministers Intend to resign."
As this decision of the French electors appears to
be of the most momentous consequence for France,
we may be allowed to make a few pertinent remarks
on the present phase of politics in that country.
The French have been now arrayed for seven years
under a Republican banner; but previous to the re
cent elections, it was very questionable whether the
majority of the people of France really desired a Re
publican form of government. The French popula
tion is divided into three great groups, which repre
sent severally: the French who desire the restoration
of the Empire under Napoleon the Fourth; the
French ' who advocate the restoration of the royal
government, either under the chief of the house of
Bourbon, Orleans or under Henri Cinq, being thus
split into two hostile factions; and the French who
support Republican institutions, being also divided
into two hostile factions, consisting of moderate Re
publicans and Socialists. From a religious point of
view, we may lay down that in France the eharch
party is divided between Imperialists and Royalists,
while a small section is, in favor of moderate Repub
licanism, the extreme Republicans being for the
most part deists, rationalists, atheists, materialists
MacMahon's late summary procedure of calling
for a new general election on the ground that the
Assembly did not represent the voice of the majority
of the French people, may be regarded as a step
which was taken towards the elucidation of the
grand question at issue. It is jaow curious to read
what Paul de Cassagnao wrote just before the elec
tions; he said, "In the approaching struggle there
will be no more Imperialists and no more Royalists;
there will be nothing but Frenchmen marching with
common accord and against the universal enemy
revolution.. Now, by " the universal enemy, rev
olution," Monsieur de Cassagnao really meant Re
publicanism, and his idea was for both Imperialists
and Royalists to forget their differences and unite
against the " common enemy," that is, the Repub
licans. MacMahon in his own manifesto almost imperatively-commanded
all Frenchmen to elect his
own supporters, and Mons. de Cassagnao told the
Frenchmen to follow to the ballot-box the old war.
rior." as our fathers followed him on the field of
Magenta and to the assault of Malakoff." Now,
many people think that the veteran warrior of the old
Gaulish race nourishes in the hidden recesses of his
loyal French heart the noble ambition to avenge
the wrongs of his down-trodden country, and not
only recover the lost provinces of Alsace and Lor
raine, but also repay plundered France for her
terrible Prussian ransom money, by the conquest
and annexation of Rhenish Prussia, with the old capi
tal of Charlemagne. Aix-la-chapelle, and the Holy
City'of the Rhine Cologne the Catholic to a new
Empire of the Gauls. It is even hinted that the old
Marshal's lovely daughter might make a charming
bride for the youthful . Prince, whose playmate
she was in happier days, when bis august father
swayed the destinies of Imperial France, and her
brave sire led on the victorious armies of triumphant
France on the bloody fields of fight of Algeria, the
Crimea and the Lombard Plains. The presence of
the Prince Imperial on the Franco-Belgian Fron
tier, at Namur, is thought by some to have bad a
political signiOcance. Paul de Caasagnae's idea
evidently was to throw France blindly and without
reserve into the hands of the " heroic soldier, who
smote down the Austrian at Magenta and the Russe
at Mallakofi" for the sole object of enabling the ve
teran scion of the old Gaulish race to arm the
right hand of France with the sword of vengeance,
which is destined in his aspirations to overthrow
the Prussian on tome future bloody battle-field of
Rhineland, and perhaps drive him definitely behind
that frontier barrier of old GauL If, Indeed,
MacMahon has nourished the aspiration that he
is destined to be the Avenger of France's wrongs
at the hands of Prussia as some French writers,
like" Monaiear de Cassagnao seem to hope and de
sire, the recent elections show that the majority
of the French people prefer to uphold their Repub
lican institutions rather than to allow MacMahon
to convert France into an Empire or a Kingdom
for the dubious chance of obtaining a bloody re
venge on Prussia, at the risk of total annihilation
ss a nation, in the event of a failure.
The Tax Law of 1876.
To the Editor of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser:
. Sir : It is a fundamental principle of all con
stitutional governments that taxation should be
It is wrong for any government to enact a law
that one member of society should pay a tax of
one per cent, on his property, and another two per
cent. A- government that woald assume such
power would be despotic.
If a man has mortgaged bis real estate worth
$10,000 for the full anion ot of Its vslue, la order
to raise, funds to engage : in some agricultural en
terprfse, and is taxed to the foil value of such real
estate, and then is taxed ta the amount of money
which he has raised on his mortgage and not yet
expended ia his business, is not this double taxa
tion ? And if the mortgagee pays taxes on the
910,000 mortgage, does it not approximate treble
taxation?. It amounts, at least, to the same pro
perty three times taxed.
The mortgage passes the title of tbe land to tbe
mortgagee, with a defeasance tbe right to redeem
on the payment of tbe money. The mortgagor has
parted with bis title and only has tbe equity of re
demption. When be is taxed for tbe full value of
tbe land thus mortgaged, be ia taxed for property
which be does not own, and never will own except
on the contingency of payment. No government
has the-right to tax a man for property which is
not bis. To assume such power would be arbi
trary and despotic in tbe extreme.
Business Corporations, representing industrial
or agricultural interests, cannot Toe compared to
banking" corporations, which issue notes aa cur
rencythe representatives of money. The pro
perty of all corporations should be taxed, but not
the shares In industrial or agricultural corpora
tions, which are only tbe representatives of tbe
value of the property of such corporations. Bank
notes are not shares in a banking corporation, but
the representatives of money and count as dollars,
and should be taxed as other personal property In
the bands of the holders. '
When a corporation ia taxed for the value of its
property and then tbe stock boldeis for tbe shares
representing that value, it is double taxation.
Now is this double taxation unconstitutional t
One great principle which lies at tbe basis of all
constitutional governments is, that there ahall be
no claw legislation and no unequal legislation.
Ia reference to taxation, our Constitution de
clares in Article 14, that " each member of society
has a right to be protected in tbe enjoyment of his
lire, liberty and property according to law j and
therefore be shall be obliged to contribute bis pro
portional share to tbe expenses of this protection.'
Lach member of society is entitled to be pro
tected in bis rlgbts. Is it protecting him to force
him to pay tbe full value of property when the
title has passed to another T Is it protecting bin
to force bim to pay on bis shares in a corporation,
when that corporation Is taxed for tbe full value
of tbe property which such shares represent?
Is such taxation tbe proportional share of such
member of society ? To be proportional tbe assess
ment should be made with a view to equality of
taxation. There is a defect in tbe law of 1170
which operates unequally, in direct opposition to
all fundamental principles of right government,
and contrary to tbe spirit if not the letter of Article
14 of our Constitution.
Aa far as the Supreme Court is concerned the
matter is settled ; but equity, justice, tbe inter
ests of our people and a sound regard for constitu
tional legislation require its repeal by our Legis
lative power. J.
