MR. GIBSON'S POSITION.
A few years ago, in oflicc seeking,
Mr. Gibson had everything to gain
and nothing to lose; now lie has
everything to lose and nothing to
gain. And ho clasps his oilices as a
hear hugs his prize. With all his
achievements and all his opportunities
however he has failed to attain the
prize dearest to every true patriot,
the esteem and love of his country
men. . He is not any more to be
trusted now than when he deceived
the confiding natives on Lanai.
He has had opportunities for re
trieving his lost reputation, and to
show that he was capable of states
manship ability and common honesty ;
but he 'has been' content with mere
smartness and an overwceninr
desire for authoiitv.
In the speech from the throne, the
country is congratulated upon the
expected revenue having been -used
as the strict measure of (lie appro
priations thus evincing the minis
terial desiu; (?) to keep thejjexpen
ditures within the means of the
country. But this attempt of a
corrupt, incompetent and spendthrift
cabinet to masquerade before the
dear people as virtuous economists
becomes entirely too obvious in the
light of the items inserted in and
omitted from their bill. We find a
scrupulous regard for tlie interests
of those who bask in the sunshine of
"permanent settlements," by virtue
of their relationship or ullinity to the
clan Kalakaua. Ditto as regards
the numerous incumbents of sleek
sinecures, as well as several useless,
clerks, undersecretaries, deputies,
etc., as yet existing only in the
dreams of thoic precious economists
and their contemplated appointees.
Ditto as regards the continued per
petration upon the country of that
grotesque absurdity the "awkward
squad" known as the Mounted
Police, its accomplished comman
der and commanded, with records
conspicuously written in Police Court
dockets, .rather than in deeds of
martial valor. Ditto as regards the
balance of the toy soldiery ; the ad
ministration of justice ( ?) by Dis
trict Justices, etc., etc., ml fiiini
turn. But we search the bill in vain, for
any evidence ofa disposition on the
part of the ministry to develop the
resources or tuo country y mcaiiB
of public improvements. Tho con
struction of roads,' wharfs, bridges,
irrigating conveniences and kindred
schemes in the out districts, beyond
an inigniflcant few, iR totally ignored,
as are all other means of extending
and diversifying our resources and
otaple products., Even the matter
of Portuguese immigration, so loudly
lauded in the speech as a means of
rcpopulating the Kingdom is entirely
ignored in tho budget.
Tho pith of the whole matter is,
the Ministry have exhausted not
only their meagre "wits, but. the ex
pected revenue, in a very stingy
provision for the absolute essentials
of national life, and a very lavish
provision for ofllcial idleness, tinsel,
gloss, baubles, fuss and feathers,
and purpose saddling upon the
House the responsibility of swelling
the appropriation bill provided the
House resolves to secure something
more tangible than vulgar parade in
return for the people's money.
The friends of Minister Gulickhopc
that lie will not be so misguided in
the coming contest, as to wholly
identify himself with Mr. Gibson and
share all of his obloquy.
The danger is that in his desire to
be loyal to his colleagues, he may be
led unwittingly into the position of
attempting to vindicate acts which
he would not conscientiously de
fciied. Mr. Gulick's integrity and future
arc worth more to him than the mere
holding of office with the company
he is in.

The Ministers have been again in

sage. Kupihea and Nakaleka,' members
from Lanai and Molokai, whose seats
are being contested on the ground
of fraud, attempted to draw their
pay yesterday, but were refused!
The bill appropriating $40,000, for
the expenses of the session, was re
ported back yesterday as having
been signed by His Majesty. The
House adjourned very shortly after.
The adjournment was for other rea
sons, but the coincidence remained.
Members who were elected on
professions of independence should
look well to their votes; thousands
of eyes are watching them. Even
the children throughout the land read
of what is done. The future will

The House assembled at 1 i m.
After prayer by the Chaplain, the
reading of the minutes of the pre

the non-appearance of the Secretary.
He finally turned up a few minutes
late. Minutes were confirmed.
Mr. Kamakele presented a peti

o'clock, His Majesty receiving the
report very graciously.
The President said the report was
out of order, as he had placed his
signature to it.
Mr. Kalua said the reply had been
properly translated and engrossed

quite satisfied and pleased.
Mr. Aholo moved the adoption of

It wns done and could not be

Tho Minister of Foreign Affairs
asked for further indulgence to pre
pare certain reports which he had
promised. He had depended on
promises of the printers, but found
they had too much work on their
hands. In these reports there was
some very important correspondence
relating to the Madras affair, Pacific
Mail Steamship Company and other
matters of public importance. The
reports so far as they had been com
pleted, included M0 pages of printed
matter. The printers arc working late
hours to get through, but it would
be impossible to fix a day, but
they would be ready in 2 or 3 days
at the latest, and would be completed
in the two languages. There arc
three printing establishments en
gaged in printing this matter. With
permission of the House I will now
read a statement, a reply to resolu
tion by the hon member from Lihuc,
relating to the policy of the Govern
ment on the subject of Immigration.
The statement was a somewhat
lengthy document, carefully pre
pared. We cull the following items :
The Polynesian immigration could
not be prosecuted.
In consequence of favorable ar-
having been made with
an individual person, the Gov
ernment has been able to carry out
its views and continue the work of
introducing Portuguese laborers and
their families. During the proceed
ing two years 5,643 men, women and
children had been brought in, and a
further number of 1,200 was shortly
A negotiation is in progress with
the Chinese government for a con
vention which will surrender to this
government the entire control of
immigration between the two coun
tries. A reply to the above is ex
pected by the incoming mail.
Immigration from Central and
Western Polynesia will not be con
tinued. Other immigration is
touched upon but we have not space
to mention it.
Mr. Dole offered a resolution that
whereas 8575,000 Hawaiian silver
coin had been imported into the King
dom, and also an additional $150,000,
and the persons owing this coin do in
tend to bring in a further amount of
$275,000, the Minister of Finance
do charge and collect duties accord
ing to law on all Hawaiian silver coin
brought into the country.
