FIVE DOLLARS. '
Eoitou 13m.m:tin : It is a maxim
itiMill places or ought to be that
those who support a Government, by
tax-paying or otherwise, have aright
to know for what purpose expendi
tures arc made, and also for what
reason obstructions arc placed in the
way of the natural development of
"business progress and interests.
Therefore I think it was perfectly
"right and reasonable for you to ask,
in behalf of your readers and the
public, why an attempt was made to
, collect five dollars per head on Chi
nese immigrants to this country, and
,it seems to me very small business
in any firm to reply to so proper an
inquriy by articling a discontinuance
of their advertisements in jonr pa-
per. That is a species of punish
ment for the freedom of the pres,
with which the writer has been faini-
liar for many ycais. It is as short
sighted as it is ineffectual., Who
supposes that it will have a tendency
in any manner to satisfy the public,
or stifle inquiry? If the object of
the five dollars was to discourage
Chinese immigration to these Islands,
it was easy to say so. If the object
was to pamper the appetite of a han-
irm. nn nf t Iir f-lnvernmpnfr. or his
confreres it might not be as easy to
say so, lm tJi frank acknowledgment
would be . better..than ,a bare-faced
attempt to punish, the inquirer. If
the ofejcc.t..ftqf;recent measures has
beoii.to.qbstnict ,the, immigration of
Portuguese laborers which the great
planting interest desires to make
,Wuy for .an o"e.-llow of Chinese
males which the planters do not
desire in order to raise a bonus for
any purpose whatever, the public
mind is not to be quieted short of a
full explanation of the whole matter.
No sagacious observer can have
.failed .to see, for some time past,,
that the whole, tendency of adminis
tration lias been to build up an in
responsible oligarchy, in what is
supposed to be a constitutional mon
archy and a liberal responsible Go
vernment. In all Governments, ex
cept the most absolute monarchies,
of which few are left, and they are
rapidly becoming "beautifully less,"
.those in authority arc amenable for
"their acts to those who are 'governed.
An attempt to establish a contrary
order of things, will only be tolerated
in a Government too contemptible
to be noticed, and where material
interests are of no account whatever.
Is our Government thus contemp
tible? And have the people of Ha
waii nei no material interests to be
PUNAHOU PREPARATORY SCHOOL.
On Wednesday morning .Sept. liith
the Punnhoii Preparatory School
was opened for the fall term at the
Armstrong Home in Berelania
Street. Miss Moore is principal,
assisted by Miss Storrs wliohas the
second class. MibS Lewis has the
Primary Department in the base
ment. Three of the Trustees were
present at . tho opening exercises,
together with ninny lftifcnjs of the
pupils'o'f whom there were 8S.pre
sent with a prospect of a larger at
tendaifce ; thc work of grading them
isnearly completed. It is thc de
sign of the Trustees to have no
pupils "at Puliation proper except
such as arc qualified to proceed
with the regular Academic course.
The new building is completed and
the term is advertised to opeu on

KlUKtU THE BUCKET.
An inquest was held on Thuibday
by Coroner Dayton to inquire into
the cause of the death of a Ghina-
man named Chang l'o who had
hanged himself on the previous inorn
ling. lie was admitted to the insane
asylum on 9th Juno 188-2 from 11a
.makua, Hawaii and had always ap
pealed quiet. When found dead he
seemed to be standing in the door
way of his room, but, as ho did not
come out, the warder called him anil
then went up tohiin, finding him dead :
with his clothing and some string he
had made a rope which was fastened
to a beam of the door post. The
Chinaman after fastening his rope
had tied himself up by standing on
a small bucket, he then kicked the
bucket away thus enabling himself
effectually to kick his own bucket.
i-'rom Our Own Correspondent.
The acting principal of the Go
vernment school has returned and
found there has been a conspiracy
and rebellion dm ing his absence. A
petition was signed by all the kana
kas in the district very few of whom
know him, and none of whom can
speak good English, and they deci
ded that he was incapable of teach
ing and had been a va quern. This
document has been inflicted on the
suffering Board of Education to bo
by them deposited amongst the ar
chives in the waste-paper basket.
The afllictcd acting principal is
thinking of sneing some of them for
libel. It seems that the boys
kicked against being drilled, hence
