OCEAN STEAMSHIP SUBSIDIES.
The ttvrival yesterday morning of
tho Suez, tbe firat of tho line of the
Oceanic Steamship Company, which
proposes to run regularly between
these Islands and tho Coast is an
event of importance. It hns become
quilt- upparcnt of lato that the rapid
ly increasing trade on this
route requires more and lwtter
accommodation than wo now have,
both for freight as well as pas
sengers. "We are assured by the
President of tlio Oceanic Company,
that they will have in actual servico
on this route, beforo the end of
twelve months, two boats which are
being specially built for them, and
that the Suez is merely chartered as
'It is ,to he expected that tho
matter' of subsidy for ocean steam
ship lines will come up for discus
sion in the Legislative Assembly.
In the Appropriation Bill as sub
mitted by tho present Ministry, the
item appears under the head of the
Department of Finance, " Subsidy
to i Ocean Steamship Lines, 850,
000." Tho Pacific Mail Co. have
been paid tho past two years about
half that amount, or' at tho rate of
61,000 per month. Docs tho ad
ministration proposo to subsidize
both the Pacific Mail and the Oce
anic Co. ? seeing that they ask for
' a sum total at the rate -of 62,000 per
month for tho two years. " Or it may
be that they intend to drop, the Paci
fic Mail and subsidjzo the new lino
.only.. Undoubtedly we- shall get
sonic light on this subject when
the item comcB up, probably Borne
time next week. .
OTJE. LEGISLATORS, .
It is quite-plain, "are altogether too
wise to wear themselves out by over
work during this hot weather. They
had a very brief of tcrluncbeon bos
bion on Tuesday, and adjourned to
eleven o'clock on 'Wednesday. At
half-past eleven yesterday there was
no quorum, and those that did put
in an appearance concluded that it
was not worth whde to try to havo any
session that day, and eo thoy separ
ated, to meet this morning, at ten
' o'clock. Gravo matters of State
should not be hurried.

Mn. Enrron : " whom'tho gods
wish to destroy, they first make
mad." This ancient Baying appears
to bo in courao of illustration right
hero and now. I can't say positive
ly as Mo tho wishes or intentions of
those mythical personages, "the
gods;" but a somewhat familiar
acquaintance with the Hawaiian peo
ple leads mo to conrludc that if not
yet quite mad, they are f as't drifting
into that condition. Just, look at
tho Legislative' Assembly, for in
stance: Shortly aftor tho elections
last February, tho present leader of
the Ministry, then editor of the
Advertiser, declared in that paper
that the men elected were good
spccimcns'of the ability and patrio
tism of tho coupjry, .nqdjntmated
that in fact they were the best men
for tho positions. Who believes
that ? No ono, I venture to. assert,
who has paid any 'attention to the
proceedings in the Assembly during
tho thirty days and more that it has
been in session. Among the Re
presentatives, instead of the energy
and industry (often at fault, I com.
cedo) that used in former years to bo
apparent, tho members now seem to
lack both of thoso qualities in a
lamentable degree. To be sure.
they havo 'no one particular man
among thorn who is an acknowledged
leader; and it must bo added that
those who in former years wcro bold
and outspoken against an extravagant
uso of public moneys, such ns is
proposed, it would seem, by the pre
sent administration, are now but
seldom heard to even expostulate.
Whither oro we drifting, and what
must bo the end of this legislative
madness or perhaps ,we should say
legislative inanition? Are' these the
premonitory symptoms of a collapse?
Would that the Hawaiians could bo
made to seethe breakers towards
which their ship of Stato is drifting.
Prison OvKiWEtnsI Complaint
has been made that some of the
overseers if native luncts over gangs
ef prisoners at work, havo been in
tho practico, of showing partiality to.
sonic in the way of work, and it has
been asserted that bribes have been
received by such overseers. The
question arises, .how could a Stato
prisoner have money in possession
wherewith to give bribes? Wo hear
that the subject is to bo investigated
by tho Marshal'. '
The owner of Standford Colt, the
winner of thc-'Kapiolani Plate on
Monday, has, at the solicitation of
lovers of the turf, offered to run him
in the proposed race's on the Fourth
of .July, against any horso in the
Kingdom, except Gen. Garfield, for
from $600 to $1000. Tho latter is
of tho same stock with the Colt,
hence tho reservation.
