Tho Hawaiian Situation.
5ti:. Eui-ron : 1 wish you would
find room for the following lines in
, your widely road little paper, as I
think the other papers have not
grasped the situation.
Some months' ago, when the pre-
, sent Cabinet took olllce, it was the
opinion of the public! generally that
tliuy were chosen merely to carry
through tho Legislature or rather to
propose certain measures and sanc
tion their passage, such as the late
Cabinet could not and would not
take iuto consideration. If that was
public opinion, then it seems the
public were correct.
But was it ever contemplated by
the best minds of tiic country that
such men could manage the govern
ment with any degi ce of intelligence?
So far as the head of the Cabinet
is concerned no one would question
his ability to conduct and perform
the duties of the Foreign office. The
same may bo said, in regard to his
ofllce, of the Attorney General. But
nrc they practical men? Can they
manage or advise in the management
of the Interior and Finance Depart
ments? If they are not, how arc
There is not an intelligent man in
this country if he chooses to say
what he thinks and believes, who
will say that tho two men in charge
of these departments are capable.
These two ollices arc to-day manag
ed simply by the clerks. Perhaps
the clerks now in charge could till
the otlices of the heads of the De
partments, but as long as they are
not in that position, theyliavc not'
even the aid or advice or others.
It would seem the time has come
when largo sums of money have to
lie handled. Would it not be better
that men were in charge who had
aoine kuowledgo of what money is,
of where it is to come from, and
where it is to go to, and above all,
, men that have the confidence of the
moneyed men of the country to some
It is not enough to say this mnn
. htm managed a largo estate, and tin
other successfully assessed a por
lion of the country. The people may
question this very much especially
1 lie management of the largo estate
part. It is simply an absurdity to
think that men with no experience
can conduct the affairs of our gov
ernment to-day, and the sooner the
King and his Cabinet sec it the bet
ter for the country.
This government should not and
cannot borrow 82,000,000, but it
could borrow a moderate sum, with
people at the head of affairs that the
. country had confidence in, otherwise
they cannot hope to. Thcso are the
A Plain Bcsinkss Mas.
Aoain- wo call attention to the fact
that the Water Works will cut off
the water supply of those who
liavcii't paid their rates, as there
are some people yet who have not
read out last notice or else not
attended to it.
