THE FLOVERDEW CASE.
Will reference to the above case our
daily contemporary in its article of the
18th inst. makes some very seriotn
mis-statements. In the case in question
no evidence was submitted because
the various statements of facts and
the documents set forth in the Bill
and Answer were taken to be true
and the argument turned solely on
this legal principle involved.
The Attorney-General at interim
ought to know that only newly dis
covered evidence can (with per
mission of the Court ) be admitted
on appeal and that in this case, tin
truth of the matter alleged in the
answer wa8 not put in issue by the
plaintiff, so that no evidence could
The statement therefore that "The
facts of the case have not been dib
cussed or subjected to the test oi
evidence before a tribunal, which
might have been the case had there
been an appeal to the full Bench oi
the Court" is misleading and con
trary to fact.
Within the last few weeks over
s'.xty German laborers ha"e been
brought to Honolulu for refusing to
carry out the terms of their eon
tracts. As bitch instances have been
uuknown among Portuguese or Chi
nese laborers it seems a very natnia
opinion 'to form that either the right
class of Germans have not been
brought to this country or that they
are not the kind of labor that we re
quire, of the last men, thirty-three in
number, that were tried at the IV
iee Court, there was not one who
had auy reasonable grounds for com
plaint. Their charges were all of a
trumpery character &o much so that
Mr. Glade who was present, in their
interests for two days during the
hearing of the cases, said "they wc.-e
most unreasonable men" and with
drew. Some of them complained
that their half-acre of land had not
been shown to them, though they
confessed to having worked on it,
others aid that their beef and sugar
were of short -weight, others thai
their houses leaked, that they were
sick and could not work hard, that
they had to work with Portuguese,
that their food was bad, that they
wanted another doctor, that they had
not enoughbenches in their houses,
that they wanted a separate house
for each single man, that they had
worked overtime without extra pay,
that' the manager swore at them (it
cannot be wondered at if he did),
that they had no bedsteads, that,
there was too much bone in the
meat, that it was stale, and other
complaints of a like character. The
most amusiug were those of the man
who complained that his aunt told
him bis sugar was short in weight,
the man who wanted to fix his on n
pay day and upset the regular plan
tation routine and the man who did
not receive his gallon of alcohol that
he wanted to turn into whi&ky and
which ho thought the manager must
It appeared in evidence that hard
ly one of these men had made their
complaints to the manager before
they appeared in Court, which wat
the first intimation he had received
of what wa3' wrong. The loss to
the plantation from tho -waste bi
time in bringing the manager, his
assistants and the laborers, on ac
count of such trifles, is very consi
derable besides being exceedingly
annoying to Jill parties concerned,
and we are quite sure that there are
no employers of labor on these is
lands who arc anxious to secure nnj
lav"i number of German laborers.
In speaking of tho Java catas
trophe our daily contemporary says,
" But amid all these unparalleled
eatastrophies abroad, Hawaii has
only been prosperous and entirely
exempt from all considerable mia
o 'tui.es. As a nation she ha3 noted
lor herself in all things as was for
the best, and benignant heaven has
protected her prosperity against all
manner of calamities. Therefore
the whole country has especial rea
son to be contented and grateful."
It will be noticed that our freedom
from disaster and calamities is due
in the first instance because Hawaii,
" as a nation has acted for herself
in all things as was for the best "
and that "benignant heaven" comes
in as an after-thought. We have to
thank Walter Murray Gibson and
ids administration for being "ex
empt from all considerable mis-for
tunes " such as have visited Ischia
and Java. He is our protector and our
saviour. Had not an all-wise pro
vidence placed him in power, then,
we would long since, have been food
for the fishes, devoured in the fiery
furnace or converted into .sulphide
of calcium. Let no man fail to re
member it. Let us fall down and
worship him for amongst us there is
no man like unto him. Wigiiins
prophesies, Gibson controls, Great
is the name of Gibson.
