OPIUIOifOF thY country
Wc have received several com
munications from subscribers and
correspondents on the other islands
relative to the suspension of Portu
guese immigration and lind that the
. opinions expressed therein are all of
the same tenor and all strongly dis
approving of the unauthorised step
taken by the Premier. The planters
say that they require more laborers,
ami, as we stated a few days ago,
some seven hundred Portuguese have
been applied for in excess of those
that arc coming ; the contracts of
tho first imported laborers of this
class will, moreover shortly expire,
and they ask how ave their places to
befillcd. Wc learn from the llilo
and Ilamakuai districts that the
Gibson Ministry has never obtained
or, held any very high opinion there,
"but' now, what few friends the Prc-
'mier could once rely upon, have
deserted him. One correspondent
writes, !l all arc now opposed to
Gibson, especially on account of his"
rlatc act in regard to the Portuguese.
The statement of receipts and ex
penditure for the quarter ending
30th September is now before us. A
comparison of this statement with
that for the previous quarter shows
a decrease in receipts of no less than
$69,401.2G. In this decrease, which
is a large one for so small a country,
is most noticeable a falling off in the
customs receipts of $35,000 while
the expenditure in the departments of
Attorney-General and Public In
struction show an increase of about
$10,000 for the quarter. Wc feel at
a loss how to account for the
decrease in customs since we have
been recently and so frequently in
formed by tho Government organ
that business has been nourishing
and that the trade of Hawaii lms
never been so good, and we shall be
anxious to see how this decrease will
be accounted for. We feel afraid
that our expectations of a balance of
$150,000 in the Treasury at the end
of the year will not be realized. Wc
should like to be informed into what
-fund the sum of $17,438.25, received
from the Chinese who were landed
here in April last, was paid, through
whose hands it passed and an ac
count of the expenses connected
with their landing and quarantine.
Since the above article was written
we have been informed by the
Auditor General that konk of the
money, received from the Chinese
who arrived here in April last, has
been i'aid into the TniJASuitY and that
he has never received any accounts
of the receipts or disbursements in
connection with their arrival, landing
or quarantine expenses. Verily the
office of Auditor General is a need
less one m Hawaii.
