THE ADVERTISER'S DOCTRINE.
Tho power of Cabinet Ministers,
or what the Advertiser people desire
should bo the power of Cabiuet Min
isters, is laid down by that paper in
unmistakable terms. Every man is
at liberty to form bis own opinions,
and in a free country like this every
man has a perfect right to express
those opinions in words. But wo
question either tho honesty or the
intelligence of any man who endca
' 'Vors to support his opinions by in
correct statement of facts. This is
what our contemporary has been
guilty of. If he is not guilty of dis
honesty, we sec no way for his es
cape from the charge of ignorance.
Tho question is asked, " Can any
or nil the Judges of tho Supreme
Court call in question the acts of
His Majesty in Cabinet Council?"
The answer appended is, " No simi
lar thing was over heard of before' in
any country whether its constitution
were monarchical, oligarchical or
An editor.who is an Englishman
and has had experience in the Aus
tralian Colonics, should know that
this statement is at variance with
truth. We refer him to the cele
brated colonial case, now historical,
in which Justice Boothby voluntarily
declared a certain Act of Parliament
unconstitutional, and therefore in
valid j and when Sir Dominick Daly
the Queen's representative, in Cabi
net Council, sought to enforce the
Act, the learned Judge defied him ;
and when he endeavored to overcome
the difficulty by removing the Judge
from the bench, he again failed.
After many mouths of contest Judge
Boothby triumphed, and the stand
which ho had taken, all through was
declared to be perfectly valid by tho
highest tribunals of the British Em
pire. This is not the only instance
in the history of that Empire in
which Judges of Supreme Courts
have "called in question" acts of
rulers in Cabinet Councils, as the
editor of the Advertiser can find by
referring to Professor Irvine's "Bri
tish Constitution." The more we
contemplate the matter the greater
is our astonishment that any man
with a common school education
should be so ignorant as to say, "no
similar thing was ever heard of be
fore in any country."
Aside from misstatement of facts,
the doctrine enunciated by the Ad
vertiser is utterly opposed both ' to
the theory and practice of modern
constitutional Governmeut, monar
chical and republican alike. Absolute
power and control by "His Majesty
in Cabinet Council" is the doctrine
of our contemporary. "If," says
he, "the constitution of this country
gives them (the judges) that po
wer," to "question the acts of His
Majesty in Cabinet Council," "tho
sooner it is amended the .better for
everybody." There is no mistak
ing the meaning of this. "A Judge
acts but under the King's commis
sion, he is a subject of the realm
and a public oervant." True, and
are not Ministers subjects of the
realm and public servants? And is
not the Kins also a subject of the
, realm and a public servant? Even
in England, where the " divine
right" theory is recognised, the
Sovereign is so regarded, and "she
is bound, as much as any of her sub
jects, to keep the laws." Doubly
so should it be hero where the
"divine right" doctrine has no
existence either in belief or prac
tice. Hero Judges and Ministers
receive their commissions from
the King ; the King was elected by
the Legislature ; the Legislature, or
a majority of its members, were
chosen by the people. Who, then,
form the foundation stone of the
governmental structure as constituted
in Hawaii? The PEOPLE.
We say, "Long Live the King,
but down with all such doctrines
as those enunciated by tho Adver
tiser. The Equitable Life Assurance Com
pany has an Income of $48,40:1,349.50
and an expenditure of 80,081,400.47.
Its total assets at tho end of 1881, were
$44,308,511.89, secured by U. S. stocks,
bonds and mortgages on real estate.
Tho society has not u single contested
claim on its hooks, and Us policies arc
incontestable after threo years from
their Issue, and payable promptly on
proof of death. Its total real estate
yields a reutal of over live per cent.
Tlds is the best company In which to
Insure yonr life.
