Has been made to tho public on
behalf of the unfortunate lepers here
and at Molokai. The gentlemen
making the appeal ask the public to
assist them in providing a little extra
comfort, clothing or toys, as a
Christmas treat, for the unfortunates
who are now confined in their lust
home on earth. The idea is a good
one and -will, we hope, meet with
general support, the more' so as an
appeal of this character is almost
unknown in Honolulu. It is earnestly
requested that all contributions may

Editor Bulletin: The Adver
tiser of last Tuesday contaiued a
leader in which appeared the follow
ing remarkable language:
There is a question involved In this
case far more important to this country
than the currency or the sale of bonds.
It is this: Can any or all the Judges of
the Supieme Court call in question the
acts of His Majesty in Cabinet Council.
If the constitution of this country plvcs
them that power the sooner it is
amended the better for everybody, and
for nobody more than tho Judges them
selves No similar thing was ever heard
of before in anv country whether Its
constitution were monarchical, oligar
chical or republican. It Is a very dan
gerous power to put Into the hands of
even such men ns judges arc usually
"chosen from. A Judge acts but under
the King's commission, he Is a subject of
the realm and public servant. He holds
a highly responsible place but his
judical function is but that of a substi
tute for the King to whom hi theory all
appeals for justice between subject and
subject are directed. To say that he
shall sit In judgment upon the actions
of him from whom all his authority aud
jurisdiction is derived is absolutely
No one will be likely to deny the
importance of the question and it is
perhaps as well that Mr. Gibson,
through his factotum, has raised it.
The theory that all government comes
from the sovereign has never been
acknowledged by any English-speaking
people since the days of the last
Henry. Since then and never so
distinctly as to-day it is the people
from whom all 'government must
proceed. In delegating a portion of
their power to certain public ser
vants known as "Kings," "Judges,"
"Ministers" and the like,. the people
abate no tittle of their authority.
Kings are sovereigns in name only,
the real sovereignty is vested in the
people. When they fail to exercise
it through ignorance, apathy, effe
minacy or corruption it is seized
upon by designing men, who become
tyrants ; and who are none the less
bo because the tyrrany is a mild one.

Editoii Bulletin: In last Satur
day's Advertiser I ' read the follow
ing, referring to the mass meeting :
J$ " An account of this meeting, which
wc will only characterize as ' incor
rect,' has been published in one of
the opposition journals, evidently
written for circulation abroad, where
its mis-Btatements cannot be criti-
cised by eye-witnesses as they are
here." No impartial person who
knows the truth of the matter can
deny that the Advertiser's long par
agraph about this meeting Avas "evi
dently written for circtlation abroad,
where its mis-statements cannot be
criticised by eye-witnesses as they
are here.'' To characterize the
major portion of that paragraph as
"incorrect" would be exceedingly
mild: "deliberate misrepresenta
tion" would better satisfy the de
mands of truth. Could any honest
man who was present at that meet
ing write: "Three opposition
speakers had their say, waxing warm
in their denunciations of the Gov
ernment;, but falling to warm up
their audience?" Every eye-witness
knows tho audience did "warm
up." Again it is said, ' ' It soon be
cameevident that a majority of thoBe
present did notbclong to the ' oppo
sition to tho Palace' party." It
Boon became evident to whom ? Not
to the speakers, not to a majority of
those present, nor tan I believe it
was evident even tothoso who wished
"it to, be so. A number of persons
were clubbed together in a certain
part of the room, who attempted
'with all their might to make it "evi
dent" that a majority present f avored.
the Government; but they know what
a miscrablo failure they mndo ofit.
The Advertiser article eonfessdSitliat
"no attempt was made to oppose
the passage of tho resolutions 'which
had been prepared for the occasion."
Why was no attempt made? If it
was evident that a majority present
did not sympathise with tho object
of tho meeting, it seems strange that
the resolutions were not voted down.
"No attempt was made," becnuso
the leaders of tho little club in tho
comer knew very well that any at
tempt to oppose the passage of the
resolutions would have been futile.
This is how it appears to
