Tin: sc-ion of the .-embly is drawiug
to a close and every d ty produces some
new proof that the Mini-try enjoys the con
fidence of the House. That his Ministers
Inve the confidence f His Majesty goes
without saying, since they were accepted
and appointed by himself. The mass of
the eople,hoth of native and foreign birth.
are of like mind with their representatives
iu the Iet-gi-lature. Their opponents are a
small party which is not and never will be
satisfied unless some of themselves are in
Iower. The whole basis of opM.-ition is
ersoiial. The party which lias at length
been obliged to fall into the background is
a party without principles, with no common
bond but a social one, no common sentiment
but a supreme belief in their own i
oritv to the native race, no common
but dollar-worship. They are dissatis
fied, and from their point of view they have
much reason to be so. If a contract is to
be made they have no longer friends and
relatives iu tlie Cabinet to see that it is
placed in " the proper quarter." If an ap
appointment is to be made their influence !
in favor of the last new protege is reduces! ;
to nil, and some one who has not the favor j
of their set is sure to get it. If it appear j
desirable for their personal interests that j
the Government should rush into some ex
penditure for which the Legislature has
made no provision, they have now to deal
with men who will have nthiug to do
with unauthorized expenditure, and who
have so worded their Appropriation Bill as
to lock up the milch cow of the Treasury
safe from all tampering with balances and
wholesale transfers of votes. These things
are not liked aud we did not expect that
they would be. They, and some personal
enmities and prejudices, lie at the bottom
of such opposition to the Ministry as exists
iu the Kingdom. The foundation is too
weak for the superstructure to be of much
Thf:rk is a great deal of talk just now
amongst a certain set about the lavish man
ner in which the Hawaiian legislator is
voting away money. Prognostications of
the country's ruin, or. at the very least, of
an increased burden of taxation are fully
indulged in. This would have been alright
if the pets of these people could have kept
the reins of power. They have been pour
ing out money like water during the past
financial period without the petty formality
of having it voted by the legislature. A;'
conservative government which represents
the nation, and not any clique, has suc
ceeded them. Consequently nothing is too
mean to be said or insinuated if it can in
jure the good fame of the country, or tend
to damage its credit and thus embarass the
men to whom this unwelcome change has
committed its destinies.
It is to be admitted witheiit hesitation
that the appropriations made this session
when compared with thoe of former years
IK)k large. So does Honolulu look large,
and the exenditure on her buildings lavish
to the man who returns to her to-day after
a few years' absence. What was done
in former days, in a progressive place
like this. Is no criterion by which to
measure what ought to be done
do-day. Very ready in practice in their
our u flairs are these detractors of the
Hawaiian legislator to recognise the fact
and to act on it. And pray, for whom is
the Hawaiian legislator making these large
appropriations? For the foreigner, not
for himself,. There Las been some in
crease made iu salaries, although not in
proportion to the increase in cost of living.
And to whom are the bulk of these salaries
paid? Not to men of native race certainly.
Why! among the recipients of salaries
from the Hawaiian liovernment Americans
foreigners of one sinla nationality
stand for over JIok.ikni. The prominent
item of the appropriations are J-ig.inni for
immigration, wholly in the interests of the
production and commerce of foreigners ;
and ?-i2. 1m i f.r roads almost wholly made
necessary by the traffic of foreigners; over
sl."y,oni for landings, wharves, and other
marine wnrns made necessary by the sea
borne traffic of foreigners; SoO,immi tor sub--idic-
to the steam lines, needed by our for
eign commerce: noo ami other inci
dental sums for expense of fighting for the
maintenance of a treaty which gives value
to products raised almost wholly by foreigner-;:
and so on through every page of the
Appropriation Bill. And all this without
iiii'Kisition of any increased taxation or any
fear that such a thing is impending. What
we would ask these people, has the Ha
waiian legislator refused to them, what,
that can protect the foreigner and foster
his industry anil commerce, has he left un-
cared for? And in return he is the constant
sulj-et of abuse and is denounced as an op
pressor who would waste in folly the money
the foreigner pays in taxe..

What we said the other lay nhont the
position matters at Washington in connec
tion with th" lieciproeity Treaty has been
rouiuily contradicted. If people prefer un-authenticatt-d
rumor, or.ti.e statements of
newspapers interested in pervertinpr the
truth, to information founded upou ollicial
communications we cannot help it. We
simply adhere to our story which is ab
olutely conect, and which is certainly cor
roborated by all authentic information that
lias been received here through otLer chan
nels. There is no doubt that if a proposal to
give notice to this Government of th
prompt termination of the Reciprocity
Treaty had been brought up in the House
of Representativ. s from the Committee to
which the matter had ben referred, it
would have been carried. In the commit
tee itself there was a tie vote'on the sub
ject. But the manifest favor of the ad
ministration towards the Treaty, and the
strong evidence given that there was a
large majority of friends of the Treaty in
the .Senate led to the matter being dropped.
To this we may add a repetition of our
statement that 'General Miller has proved
himself an active friend of the Treaty.
Thk Appropriation Bill was finally re
ported from Committee, and the items as
reported were approved by the House on
.Saturday morning. The total of the Ap
propriations is $.'5,:W7,-.277t. This is a large
figure, but we have to remember that it in
cludes S.jO,000 for Immigration, over 300,
000 for roads and bridges, about ?2o0,
000 for public buildings, $",0,(Xx) for com
pleting the Marine Railway and about
loo,OuOfor Marine Works, such as land
ings, bells, buoys, lighthouses, etc. We have
thus items for permanent improvements
amounting to nearly Sl,20o,uo0, which
Ministers propose to provide for by loan,
ami which by the wording of the Loan Bill
w ill be practically deducted from the Ap
propriations. Consequently the require
ments of the Appropriation Bill will be
fullv provided for bv the ordinary revenue
of the country. if any difficulties occur
which render it impossible or unadvisable
for the Government to b' rrow on the
authority of the Loan Bill, or to borrow
only a part of the amount therein author
ized, the expenditure which was to be pro-
i vided for by the Loan cannot, of course, be
proceeded with. Wo do not, however, en-
1 .l,,ii.f Hioi tn.di a nm !is we re-
i quire, intended for such purposes as those
' just ennumerated, will be obtained without
: difficulty and on favorable terms. People
i have been stirring up the Ministry and
i saying, "why do you not do this?'' and
i "why do yu not do that?" Up to the pre
sent time Ministers have not had it in their
i power to comply with these requests, but
! their hands will now soon be untied, and
i fron the well-known energetic temperament
j of all the members of the Ministry we need
1 fear no delay iu their application to the
! tasks which the Legislature by its various
i Appropriations has imposed upon them.
Bkfokk leaving this subject we desire to
say emphatically, in contradiction to state
ments which have lately been made, that
never at any time did Mr. Gibson encourage
or favor a loan of $10,000,000, or $7,0000,000
or $."j,0(HJ,000, or any loan except for specific,
and well-defined purposes, and for objects
which cannot fairly be made charges on or
dinary revenue in any country. With es
pecial reference to the stand taken by Mr.
Gibson when he was soliciting the suf
frages of his late constituents, we re-print
to-day his speech made on the eve of the
election when he had been specially re
quested to deal with this question. This
gives the lie direct to statements which
have recently been published with the view
of defaming Mr. Gibson's character and, if
possible weakening his influence. So do
his speeches in the Assembly of 1880, and on
previous ocaasions when this subject has
been mooted. The policy of the present
Ministry in regard to national borrowing as
embodied in their Loan Bill is exactly that
which Mr. Gibson has advocated from the
first, and is foreshadowed with great ex
actitude in the Report of the Finance Com
mittee of the Legislature of 1880 on the Ten
Million Loan Bill of that session which
bears his signature as chairman of the
'" The success of the movement made by
a few of our fellow-citizens to promote the
re-establishment of an annual agricultural
i show is a matter for congratulation. We
feel sure that the society thus brought into
being will have the cordial support of all
those who are engaged in the breeding of
stock, and in agricultural pursuits. It was
; high time that such a society should be
formed. Divided from one another by the
sea, little is known except by hearsay by
the inhabitants of one island of what is
being done ou the other. An annual show
will bring all together, inciting competi
tion and affording to each the opportunity
of learning something from what others
have done. There can be no doubt, too,
that under the fostering care of this society
many new articles may be added to the
list (if our agricultural products, aud much
improvement secured in many things that
are now grown. We wish the Hawaiian
Agricultural Society a long and useful
In another column we reprint, with
some comment, an extract from a letter
which has been published in the Dram
men Times. In this various arrangements
that have been made to release Norwegian
immigrants from their contracts or transfer
them (with their own consent, the law does
not allow it to be done otherwise) to new
employers, are described as the purchase
ami sale of whiteslaves. These idle tales
told in a foreign land may or may not do
this country any damage", but in any case
they awaken reflection as t the propriety,
of if possible, so modifying our immigra
tion system as to render such stories im
possible. It is not only for the sake of
doing away with these misrepresentations
that such ti course i- worth considering. It
is admitted on all hands that the advance
system is a serious evil. It is possible that
a beginning might be made towards break
ing up this incubus on enterprise if we
were to follow in the footsteps of some of
the Colonies, and let our Government im
migrants engage themselves on arrival un
shackled by any prescribed terms and un
burdened ly any virtual debt to their em
ployer for the advance by which he has
recouped the Government for the cost of
their passages to this country. If the re
funding of the passage money were made :t
matter between the immigrant and t'.e
Government alone, as has been done in 'he
Colonies, aud a lengthened term given him
tor repayment, it might be found a great
improvement on the present system.
Where this has been tried in the Colonies
very little Ios.s to the Government has ever
accrued, aud men have constantly been
found not only to pay up their passage
notes before they were due but to deposit
part of the cost of getting out their relatives.
The idea is certainly worth thinking about,
and we fancy that on consideration it will
be found worth trvinsr.
Some time agoa ti-herman'scanoedrifted
ashore near the leper hospital and was se
cured by the steward of that institution
who found on board of it a quantity ofgiaut
powder, one charge of which had" t lie cap
fitted to it mihI a stone attached to sink it,
showing that the use contemplated was the
capture of fish. From inquiries we have
made we are led to the conclusion that a
majority of our fishermen ease their labors
by this illegal method. The accidents from
time to time rejorted from the o: her i-laud-.
show how prevalent its u.-e is there, and
from their circumstaii"cs show also that
the secrecy about it which is practise! here
is not thought necessary elsewhere.
To be able to keep an eye on this sort of
thing was one of the reasons why the
Police Department included a police boat
iu their requisition for supplies for the cur
rent fiscal period an item which oar legis
lators condemned without in pulry. In
such matter- as this, however, the old
maxim is true, that " prevention is better
than cure." If nitro-glycerine, iu any of
the forms in which it is manufactured for
use, were treated iu the same manner that
poisons are, and a record insisted upon of
all sales, with the nanus of the purchasers,
the police would very soon find out who
were usiu: it for fishing purposes. The
number of accideuts fro m the use of giant
powder for fishing has already been so great
that it is high time something of this sort
were done. If a man uses poison for the
purpose of murder or suicide, there is
generally but one killed, but if he carries
giant po'wder about, and uses it carelessly,
the chances always are that when an acci
dent happens there may be several victims
intead of one.

On motion of Hon. Mr. Kauai, the vote
fixing the sum of 7,000 as the salary of the
Postmaster-General was reconsidered and
was afterwards passed at SS.00O.
His Excellency the Minister of Finance,
presented a report, under suspension of the
rules, but before anv action had been taken
on it, the House at 4:45 adjourned until 10
OXT OTE s.
; We are glad to note that the sum of four thou
sand dollars has been voted by the Assembly for
Chinese translatcrs. This item was strongly op
pose by native members ; but after His Ex. Mr
Gibson's urgent representation that the Govern
ment was somewhat pledge to advocate the measure
and that it was of itself verr deserving of favorable
. consideration, the appropriation was allowed. W
trust this sum, though moderate, will secure to
I the country, for a time, the services of the eminent
Chinese translater Dr. McCartee.
Not ahsent Iu the Legislative report of Mon
day, in reference to the division on the Brickwood
settlement Bill, Hon. G. Rhodes is mentioned as
absent. We desire to correct by saying that the
Honorable President of the Assembly, has not been
absent a day, or an hour, during the Session.
An application to purchase three hundred and
five acres of land on Hawaii was made to the Gov
ernment on Monday. This land is one of the par
eels referred to in a recent article m this paper as
omitted from the Mahele Book. We hope that this
application will cause the question, who these lands
belong to, to Ih; tried at once. It does not appear
that anything can be gained by delay and some,
thing mav be lost, not only to the Government
but to those who are readv and willing to utilize
An alarm of fire was rung Tuesday evening about
seven o clock, and engines, hooks, ladders, etc
were quickly turned out. It was only a great pile
of brush that was being burnt on a lot off Lunalilo
street. In decently governed towns it ia a punish
able offence to light such tires without leave from
the authorities. To see our firemen start off with
a will to drajr their engines to district numbet
9. called to mind the remark ; we recently made as
to the propriety of having h-ov.:1- provided for this
purpose. If there were a l.'iep.ione at the Uell
Tower the unnecessary alarm might have been
Stopped long before it was.
A Bill was introduced in the Assembly on Monday
and (under snsoeu .ion of the rules) read the se
ond time " to prompt.; th construction of a Horse
Hailroad in trie District of Honolulu." It recites
that Charles li. Wilson and B. Ordenstein filed at
the Interior office, on sth inst. a lxitition for incor
poration. for themselves, their associates and suc
cessors under the name of the "Pioneer liailroad
Company," and will, if passed, grant to them the
us? of certain streets and roads exclusively as
against any other railroad company for thirty
vfars. The railroad is to bo of not more than three
feet gauge and the usual regulations to prevent in
jury to the roads, and interference with ordinary
traftio are to le enforced. The highest limit of
fares is to lie ten cents withiu a circle of one mile
from the bell tower and twenty-five conts outside
that limit. The routes named in the Bill are as
follows: Through Nnuanu street, in said Honolu
lu, from its junction with King Street, to the defile
known as the pili. at the head of Nnuanu Valley,
and upon and through King street in said Honolu
lu from its junction with Nuuanu street to the
Waikiki road, and upon and through the Waikiki
road from King street to Kapiolani Park, and also
such branch railroads as may lie required upon
and through any other roads and streets in said
District of Honolulu.
The statement that Mi. Gibson gave his support
to the scheme known as the Ten Million Loan, has
been repeated in spite of the most positive denial
of this journal. A document, published by Mr. Li
likalani, lttfore the election, is pointed to as bind
ing Mr. Gibson because that gentleman's name
was on the same hallot with its author. It is even
stated that Mr. Gibson's signature appears to this
manifesto because it win.'.s up with a request that
the people should vote for four men, of whom Mr.
Gibson is one, and the four names are printed iu
large letters A little attention would have saved
Mr. Gibson's defamers from making this blunder.
J Bitter, disappointed and foolish as they are, we are
j still prepared to lielieve that it is a blunder ami
j not a willful misrepresentation. Mr. Gibson, in
j the columns of the Advkutiskr. expressly stated
that he had not given his consent t. have his nam.-
associated witn any otner can.'i.iaie. it is
insinuated that he tried to catch the native
vote by associating himself with these who favored
the Ten Million Loan. I.et us see what lie said
through the medium of his native paper the Elrlr
PiKiknhi. In that journal on January 11. 18M2. wo
find: " But it must be distinctly understood that
Mr. Gibson has not put his name to any sqieoial
ticket, and again," ' our friends will reuiemler
thar Mr. Gibson lias given his name to the people,
not to any one ticket, and has not requested that
his name should le used on any special ballot."
What we ask could lie plainer than this?
When Mr. FrelinghuvKen succeded Mr. Blaine as
Secretary of State at Washington, it was believed
that the change would be followed by some modi
fication in regard to foreign airairs. So far as the
relations of tbe United States with England, in the
matter of the Panama Canal (and the clauses of
the Clayton-Bulwer Treaty which rolate to it) are
concerned, the present Administration seem dis
posed to maintain the amc attitude as their prede
cessors. In a despatch to the United States Minister
in London, dated May S. Mr. Frelinghnysen repro
duces in their entirety the arguments uvd by Mr.
Blaine to justify the ilfinaiul that Great Britain
shall forego the rights in rc-iect of the Panama
Canal with which the Clayton-Bulwer Treaty in
vests her. It is clainu-d by Mr. Frelinghuyseii
that at the time of the treaty it was understood
that British capitalists were about to undertake
the construction of tie' canal, and that as thtv let
the opportunity to do this slip by them. England
has no longer any qualification to exercise author
ity over the canal "now that the United States
ahme undrtaks the enterprise." Mr. Freling
huysau goes on to say that the United States is
prepared to adhere to the clause of the treatv
which stipulates for the establishment of a free
port at either end ef the cnal. and will also sub
scribe to a convention del .:i;.:iing within what
distance from the canal captures . x"-p made in
times of war, but will not go a in'e- ' nd
that. As- t the proposition madeTjO JS
that the future canal shall le placed nn, T"
collective protectorate of all the Powers tils
Cabinet of Washington will not listen to it at any
price. It claims for the United States alone the
right to guarantee the neutrality of the canal, and :
hopes that the Government of Great Britain wi jn ;
the eud admit that the pretentions of the V keA
States are well founded. -oil
