learned Moses Gibson was
the other day talking to a
of members of the House on
the leprosy question. lie told the
confiding representatives of the back
country districts that since ' had

discharged about thirty-two lepers
cured, but it was not so in Wilder' .
time. (He also intimated that he
was the veritable Moses.) The e. i.
exclaimed 'pcla no!" and inti
mated tlieir love and affection for the
V. M. and- that they-would like to
see the staff raised and water-turned
into blood. A skeptical outside who
heard of this, offered at once to put
up $10,000 for the production of a
person who had the veritable leprosy
who had been cured and discharged
by Mr. Moses Gibson.

A pamphlet of six pages by Mr.

article from MissPayson on the evils

statute and provide a licensing

THE APPOINTMENT OF DISTRICT
The isue of yesteiday which re
sulted in so .signal a defeat of
the Ministry, is .simply this: For
more than twenty years the appoint
ment of the District Judges through
out the Islands were made by the
several Governors, subject to the
approval of the Judges of the Su
pscme Court. And the system
worked well. Gradually a better
class of magistrates were obtained,
and under the supervision of the
Supreme Court the character of the
inferior courts steadily improved.
But at the lijst session, in 1882, a
Hiidden and Huuccsbful move was
made, and the law amended, so as to
dispense wiili the approval of the
Judges of the Supreme Court;
leaving' the appointment solely with
the Governor It was a startling in
novation and one fraught with
dntigci'i. But il was in keeping with
policy of centralization! and one
man power, and tlio Gibson Ministry
supported it. It was looked upon
by the country as a hasty, ill-considered
act, and upon the introduc
tion of a Bill, early in the present
session, to restore tltc old law. it
was supposed that all intelligent
members would nuppoit the measure.
But the Ministers, acted with what
can only be characterized as stu
pidity, and set out to defeat it.
The tcsult is a merited rebuke to
those infatuated would-be leaders of

FOR THE INDEPENDENCE OF DISTRICT
Yesterday an attempt to indefi
nitely postpone the second reading
of Mr. W. O. Smith's bill for
reserving to the Judges of the. Sup
reme Court the power of advice, and
approval in the appointment of
district justices, was defeated by a
vote of 2-i to 21 in a nearly full
house of the Legislature, and it is a
matter of congratulation to the public
at large that the attempt was
defeated. Article f13 of the Civil
Code provided that "the respective
Governors (by and with the advice
of the justices of the Supreme Court)
shall appoint nc or more district
justices, not exceeding two, for each
of the districts in their respective
jurisdictions.'" The words we have,
placed in brackets, were struck out
by an Act passed by the Legislature
of 1882. So also in- Art. 1)22 the
condition "with the approval of the
justices of the Supreme Court,"
were removed at the same time. It
may be remembered how the Act
making these changes in the Civil
Code were pushed through the third
reading on the last day of the Ses
sion, and received the Royal Assent
so speedily and secretly that the
Judges, on remonstrating, were told
that already they were too late. The
object in making that change was of
course to render the district justic
iary more dependent on the Crown
and more docile in their behaviour.
The object of Mr. Smith's proposed
recurrence to the former Code is to
help them to lie more independent
and possibly move upright, and as
such must have the good wishes of
everyone desirous of seeing good
government and unsuspected justice
throughout the Kingdom.
The Report of the Minister of
Foreign Affairs, is with the corre
spondence, etc., a veiy voluminous
but not wholly satisfactory docu
ment. Certainly the Minister in his
manifold capacities has managed to
keep himself busy, and for the most
part in hot water. As President of
the Board of Health he hr.s got into
a terrible mess in the matter of the
Madras. As spokesman of the Board
of Immigration he has twisted and
turned, and changed his mind and
his policy, and his regulations so
often and so unintclligently that it is
almost hopeless to try to follow him.
He reminds one of somebody else
who when asked "Whence comest
thouV" replies, "From going to and
fro in the earth and from walking up
and down in it." For though the
Minister in his own person has been
occupying one or other of his ofllccH
in Honolulu for the last biennial
period his emissaries have traversed
the globe from Paris to Japan from
Servia to the South Sen Islands, the
only icalisable result for so far,
being the. bestowal and receiving of
compliments and decorations.
This is not altogether so innocent
an amusement as might at first
appear, travelling and hotel bills,
parchment and jewelry an expensivo
matters and it especially behoves
Hawaii tinder existing circumstances
to be careful of every dollar of ex
penditure. The accounts of the Hawaiian
youths now being educated abroad
arc interesting and creditable to the
young men, but why his country
should be loaded with the mainte
nance of a young gentleman for eight
or nine years in order that he may
be made into a foreign naval oflloer
docs not appear.
There arc other matters which
might have appeared, but have not,
in the Foreign Minister's leport and
which may be referred to another
day, as I lie unpleasantness which
arose from the ill manners of our
factotum in regard to the Captain of
the French corvette Limicr at die
time of the coronation, ami the very
remarkable omission of any sort of
state hospitality towards the Captain
and olllcers of the Russian man-of-war
Rasboynik who were charged
with the presentation of a letter and
decoration from the Emperor of
Russia. Wo can reserve the right
