THE COMINC SESSION.
The period to which there has
heen an expectant looking forward
for many months approaches: the
time is at hand : the Legislature of
1884 formally opens the session to
morrow. Predictions liav.c been
uttered, .surmises ventured, and
opinions expressed concerning the
proceedings and results of the as
sembled wisdom of the country. In
some quartets tremulous fears exist,
and in others bright hopes arc en
tertained. The near future will sec
the fulfilment or falsification of those
predictions, the realization or dis
persion of those fears, the acconi-
plishment or disappointment of those
hopes. Wc can well afford to wait
the short time that now remains.
The coming session is invested
with unusual importance, partly by
public interest and public expecta
tion, but more particularly by the
fact that the material and commer
cial condition and prospects of the
country are such as to impose on the
Legislature the special necessity of
wise, carefully considered, and con
The greater emergency of the
times is counterbalanced by the im
proved composition of the elected
portion of the house. Rarely, if
ever, has a Hawaiian Legislature
contained so many intelligent, capa
ble, educated men men, too, who
are thoroughly acquainted with the
country and people, their condition
and requirements. To tiiese and to
the capable and patriotic of the
Nobles, the nation aboriginal and
Caucasian looks with confident ex
pectation. One of the first duties of the ses
sion will be to investigate the doings
and expenditures of the past two
years, and censure or exonerate as
, occasion may require. If those
charged with the responsible govern
ment of the country have been
remiss, or extravagant, or corrupt,
they should receive the full meas
ure 6f their deserts. But if,
on the other hand, it be found, after
thorough investigation and keen
scrutiny, that the accusations of the
.press and the people arc false, that
the appropriations have, been pro
perly and economically expended,
and that ministers have done their
duty honestly and conscientiously,
they should be accorded a full and
complete exoneration. All honest
"men, whether supporters or oppo
nents of the government, will agree
that the investigation should he un
dertaken and conducted in a spirit
of candor, fairness, and patriotism.
Not only docs the past need ex
amining into, but the future must be
provided for, and this will call into
requisition all the brains, the wis
dom, and the ability of which the
whole Legislature is capable. Old
laws require repealing or amending,
new ones must be enacted, appro
priations will have lo bo judiciously
made, wild extravagance carefully
avoided and guarded against, and
many other things attended to.
Wc sincerely hope that every legis
lator will devote himself intelligently,
honestly, and patriotically to the
duties of his position, deeply imbued
with a sense of responsibility to his
country, and nobly and persistently
maintaining an attitude above the
suspicion and the influence of cor
SEVEN SERMONS SUMMARIZED.
Mr. Adec, in a private letter writ
ten to a native Hawaiian, which has
been handed to ns for publication,
briefly summarizes his opinion of the
Hawaiians which he had spread
throughout his seven sermons. The
recipient of the letter says "I do not
endorse all Mr. Adee's opinions, and
he has mixed up what information I
gave him with a great deal obtained
evidently from not very accurate
sources. I do not like the idea of
us he has given the world, as a good
natured, pleasure loving, sensuous
people and nothing else. He means
well enough, I dare say, and that
was perhaps the impression he did
receive of us, and no wonder, if some
of the gentlemen he mentions were
his authorities; but I, as a Ha
waiian, resent the imputation."
The following is the extract from
Mr. Adee's letter :
"I willingly acquiesced in your
view of the value, or lack of worth,
of our conditions among the early
Islanders of the Pacific, accepting
your very intelligent ideas on the,
subject without dissent. Your peo
ple, no doubt, have been unfor
tunately dealt with, unfairly influ
enced by design or otherwise, jprac
ticallzed out of existence, and en
tirely too much materialized and
modernized for their happiness, con
sidering their clastic temperaments.
Calvinism, not Chiistianity, (for no
tice how different it is with Roman
ism), broke down their spirits, as
European garments broke down their
health. A cheerful, light-hearted,
easy-going, sociable race whose phy
sical surroundings had rendered them
tranquil of mind and indifferent to
acquisition, the cupidity of civiliza
tion ; a numerous, prosperous, pleasure-loving
people, seeking the sun
shine and the sea-shore, subsisting
on the spontaneous products of the
earth ; living in the sensuousness and
luxuriousness of their tropical cli
mate, country, and constitutions;
gifted with the perception of the
picturesque to a rare degree, and
the relish of beauty in fruit, and
flower, and every fringe of foliage ;
an indolent, compliant, sanguine
race of beings, taking no thought
for the morrow these intelligent
inhabitants of a chain of isolated,
self-sustaining islands suddenly find
themselves face to face, in intimate
relations, with an aggressive, avari
cious, all-absorbing, self-assertive
civilization,, and are swept away
before its enforced enctoachments
as the chambercd-nautilus is blown
and borne before the storm to sure
and swift destruction on the coral
reef. Is it not so?"
"Politically, I have over thought
that where a people are capable of
progress, enlightenment amongthem
selves, and are readily receptive of
the arts and sciences and, the litera
ture of the ages, they should be
largely left to their own characteristic
development and not .treated as
children by any compulsory system
of foreign culture, In view of the
islanders having been such superior
aborigines, I confess that in the
abstract the new national tenet
Hawaii for tho Hawaiians is quite
agreeable to me. But this should
be based on no narrow, prejudiced
policy, ungenerous to the denizen or
naturalized subject; but upon the
broad, liberal rule 6f equal rights
for all, and uniform justice and fair
mindedness, also the Hawaiian will
not be pushed to the wall however,
so long as he possesses a King of his

attempt to throw dirt upon a new
business enterprise rather reflects
dirt upon the detractor. I might as
well' say, if another man comes to
start in the same business as myself,
that he "certainly is not needed."
It might affect mc but it would stir
