Tllll USD AY, MAY 11, 1882.
o have a j;ood deal ol'erudu legis
lation in Hawaii nei, sunlit is quite
natural thai, it should lie ho, when we
reflect upon the facts in tlio case.
Most of the Representatives of the
people, elected by the native, vote,
are emphatically of the people, and,
as a rule, liavo a very imperfect
knowledge- of either the business of
framing laws properly or of just
hat laws arc-needed. It might be
supposed that the Crown ministers,
and especially the Attorney General,
would bo the ones fo prepare and
introduce in proper shape, the need
ed legislation. But unfortunatily a
state of things exist here which mili
tates against such a salutary result.
It seems to have become of late,
years a chronic disease with our
average legislator, to want, as soon
us the Assembly meets, to change
the Ministry. Hence Ministers,-
feeling an uncertain teiunc of olllce,
are likely to stick to the bare routine
of their departmental duties, and
fail to devote the required time and
application to preparing legislative
work. The Attorney General, who
should be tlio fraincr of proposed
statutes, being a member of the
Cabinet is in the same category with
other Ministers. Now if the otllcc
of Law Adviser of the Crown were
created, (or rather revived) and the
incumbent kept out of the Cabinet,
except so far as giving his. legal
advice when called for, then that
Department of the Government
would be likely to acquire a condition
of stability and usefulness, which it
can not have so lonjras the Attorney
General is a Cabinet Minister and
must go out of oflico with his col
leagues. The passport system is likely to be.
nbolHicd, an Act for that pot pose
having been introduced in the As
sembly. And tki-s biiugs to mind
the fwt that iindir existing laws, if
a person. " skips " the country,
leaving behind unsettled debts, and
Iinving propcrtj" in the kingdom, the
only way to getsit that property and
pay the debts is, by a costly process
in bankruptcy provided the debts
amount to a specified sum. This is
ii wrong, ;nil should be remedied.
Humors are rife about prospective
Cabinet changes, and we have seen
a ' slate " declared to be " on good
nutlioiity." But wo think it will
keep, for a while at least.
