NATUliDAY, MAY 18, 1882.
N The momlior for Ewn (litis.
Fuaxk Ilimws) him given notice of
lite intention to introduce, mi Act 1
tuuoiid the law in respect to the ob
i, rvuneu of llto Sabbath. The main
provision ill this logard is found in
.Section 2, Chapter 513, of the Penal
Code, and is almost a re-enactment
of the Statute of 1810 on Hie same
i.ubiecl, to bo found in the "Ulue
liook." It reads as follows:
"The Lord'. day is taboo: nil
worldly lm-iines-., aiMfcmciits and
ivcn-aiion arc foi bidden on that day;
and whoever ulmll keep open his
nhop, htofe, w.m chouse, or work
shop, or .shall do any manner of
la' tor, business or work, except only
v.- n ks of neeesMty and chaiity, or be
jMCseut at any dancing, public
amusement, show or entertainment,
i r take part in any game, sport or
pi.ty on the Lord's day, shall be pun
ttiti'd by fine not exceeding ten
Now, everybody knows that this
law is systematically and with por-
. leel impunity, broken, filly-two times
:i vear. all over the country. It is
broken every week by the Govern
ment itbelf, through the labors of the
I'ostmastei-Gcneral and his subordi
nates ; by venders of meats, vegeta
bles, biead and milk; by hack-drivers
and stable-keepers; by hoiibc
Kccpcrs ; by shipping ; and in fact,
by pretty much everybody. Thus,
to a gieat extent, it appears that our
.Sunday law is a dead letter, which
u not a satisfactory condition of
t hings ; for the habitual disregard of
:my law leads to contempt for law in
general. The religious scutiment of
this community demands that the
Christian Sabbath shall be a day of
j est from secular employments ; and
1! lose who have no religious feeling
in the matter, while far from desir
i.ig to give up Sunday, wish to be
: llowed to keep it in any way that
way suit their own convenience. A
l.iw on this subject that shall satisfy
i very one, will be the nc plus ultra
SimcnuNT Masox. Our readers
' will remember the case -of this man,
m ho while on guard nt the prison in
Inch the assassin Guittcan was con
l.uctl, tried to shoot the so-called
' crank," and who was sentenced by
-t'.te military court martial to be im
prisoned for a term of years at hard
l.ibor and be dishonorably discharged
l rout the service. Great efforts are
j Wing made to get a pardon from the
1 i'lciidcnt for Mason, and petitions
.' dii bis behalf arc being extensively
:i ciliated. One of these has been

ffMft. EniTon': lu .Tuesday's issuo
of the llin.i.KTix you nlludo to tho
subsidy paid by this government to
tho P. M. S. S. Company, intimat
ing that the country has not received
full value for the amount given.
Extremely few will dissent front this
view, pat ticiilarly'of those who have
had occasion to tinvel between
Honolulu and San Francisco. You
say, u What tho country needs now,
and could afford to pay a fair sub
sidy for, is an independent line of
well-appointed steamers." Yes, that
is certainly, what wo need, and per
haps we can afford to pay a fair
subsidy to such a lino ; but is it wiso
for governments to subsidise private
cnterpiiscs of this nature? Admit
ting that much may bo said in favor, I
hold that subsides of this kind mo
not in keeping with the most enlight
ened policy. It is often said that Aus
tralia and New Zealand pay a large
subsidy to tho Pacific Mail Steamers.
Australia and New Zealand do noth
ing of the kind : they do not pay
one cent of subsidy. They simply
pay to the steamers a stipulated
amount for carrying mail matters.
Tho steamers aro under contract to
carry mail between the New Zealand
and New South Wales colonics and
and San Francisco, and for tho per
formance of that service5 they arc
paid a specified suin, but do not
receive anything in a form of a sub
sidy. In fact the Australian col
onies have ever set their faces
against subsidies, and little Hawaii
could do noise than follow their ex
New Music Hall.
