RIGHT ABOUT FACE!
The vote of yesterday afternoon
on the reconsideration of the motion
to indefinitely postpone the ' Act
relating to the appointment of Dis
trict Justices," proves, among other
things, how necessary it is for the
Independent parly to keep a close
watch over the tactics of the "p.irty
for the perpetuation of abuses."
The absence of certain Nobles on
Monday, and their presence on
Tuesday, was one cause of the mis
hap. The Honorable Noble Wide
mann distinguished himself by vot
ing on the opposite sides of the
question on two successive days,
thefeby contributing, as far as lay in
his power, to the self-stultification of
the Legislature. Mr. Palohau as
sisted. However this is to be regretted as
an accident, it is not to be deplored
as an important event. It was one
of a series of minor issues of the
session, and in no sense a test case.
An attempt of independent mem
bers to restore certain appointments
to the more wholesome basis, whence
they were removed for purposes
never propounded to the public, but
only too obvious to (public percep
tion, two yearn ago, has been foiled
, by Ministerial pressure and superior
The most cursory examination of
the list of votes on either side bhows
tt once tio weight of intelligence,
education, property on one side, and
subservience, obedience, hopefulness
it may be on the other. On one
hand salaries in possession trembled
for, or in the future hoped for, on
tho other, independent desiro for
' lolng good to the body politic.
It is not by trials of strength Bitch
ns this thnt the work of the session
nmy bo anticipated!
"Wo liavo been guilty of so many
irregularities and evasions, that a
few more . or less cannot matter" is
the answer of the Government to the
questions put concerning the salaried
employment of Messrs. Webb and
Parker. We strained at a gnat a
few months ago in refusing permis
sion to practice his profession, to a
gentleman recently arrived, bir't, wc
may swallow whole droves of camels
if they promise to be personally
Compare the action of the Gov
ernment towards Mr. Ashford on
one htuul, and Messrs. P. Neumann
or Julius Smith on the other, and
then again with the status of the
Government employees just quoted,
and one may see the tender con
scientiousness characteristic of re
The law was altered during the
last session of the Legislature, and
of course in the direction of central
ization of power in the hands of a
yery few, who have taken to them
selves additional powers to inforcc
or ignore it, as may seem to them
useful for their own purposes.
As the present session goes on we
shall sec how and with what success
the two parties in Iho House strive
for their respective purposes, one
for their own personal schemes and
the other for the general good.
There arc now, nominally at least,
four Cabinet Ministers, of these, one
is a mere tool, one demands the
mastery of everything, but surely it
is not too ' much to hope that the
other two may endeavor to do their
duty without fear or favor.
Since writing the above, it haB
pleased His Majesty to grant letters
of denization to the gentlemen
hitherto irregularly employed by
the Government. Can this tardy
regulating of irregularities take
retrospective effect and cover the ex
penditures already made?
JINKS AND BUMPS AT THE LEGISLA
TURE. The Buu.ktin reporter had left
the Government Building yesterday
afternoon after the racket about the
District Judges and was gently am
bling past the Music Hall when he
came up on -Jinks and Bumps sitting
on the front steps discussing the
situation, so he held up and stopped
Bumps kept right on, "Which one
did vou say was Widemann?"
"Why" replied Jinks, "didn't you
spot that long legged critter next
neat to Mr. O. Dominis. that jumps
up like . though he had a bumble
bee. in his 'pants, and raises his
shoulders above his ears and rams
liis hands down into his pockets,
and begins to talk by lifting his eye
brows and shaking his head?"
'Oh yes, why he's the cove' who
spouted on three sides of the Corpor
ation law the other day and voted
different each time, and afterwards
explained that he was getting kinder
old and rickety like. Well, who is
he any how?"
"Well, he's old Widemann, that's
about as far along as I can get.
lie hasn' t any regular employment,
except to manage the money of a
rich old pared of his in England,
and engineer jobs that his son-in-law
concocts. lie's been in most every
thing first and last. He was judge
of the Supreme Court once."
"What! Him a jedgc of the Sup
reme Court! Novt look a' here mate,
you are foolin me. Been a jedgc,
and spout as lie does, and vote agin
this District .ledge law. Oh, you'r
givin me away."
"Its so, honest injun. But he
didn't hang on long, he's sorter rest
less and oncasy unless he ken get
into a fuss with somebody, and the
other judges wus pretty dignified.
So he dropped that an went into lots
of other things. Why a. short spell
ago lie was in a telephone company,
but he run in a lot of sulphur and
brimstone, and made a perfect per
dition of a time, so the company
shook him, and he' started another,
and went off on a jaraboreo over to
Frisco to see if he couldn't strike
some new idea that'd knock bpots
out of the old comptuvy well, he
come home, an his accounts was
sorter mixed and some of hi6 stock
holders is sick and disgnsteddiko.
and arc around trying to give their
stock nway, but that, job's heliotrope
long side the cable spice ho has on
hand. Why, he and Bergcr not
the music master, but that one that
has a ranch down near the Bank,
they two has the softest gilt edged
racket on hand you ever- struck.
The proposition they hold out to the
Government is like the plan au old
feller without a red to his name who
wanted to gamble in stocks proposed
to another one who had the dumps.
"You furnish the rocks and I'll fur
nish the brains and we'll go into
partnership and divide." Only this
is wus, for the partnership and
divide part's forgot. The Govern
ment's to furnish all the dumps, and
then be left out in the cold. It isn't
all Merger's idea though, for Neu
mann's furnish some of the brains,'
they say. You sec there was a dead
lock between Neumann, the Interior
man and the Auditor General about
paying for the soundings and things,
as there was no appropriation. But
Neumann's superior knowledge, com
bined with the desirability of pleas
ing Widemann so he'd vote right,
"But I say" just then Mr.
Gibson came around the corner at
about 50 miles an hour, eyes out and
coat tails Hying, on his way to the
Advertiser to make a "suggestion,"
and-slartlcd the party so that they
abruptly broke up and left.

said his ap-
pointments had always been approved
and was proud to say that there had
never been any reflection on any of
his appointments. He had appointed
several Judges for the other islands,
but had always asked the advice of
the Supreme Court. After the pre
vious .question had been moved and
carried, the vote was taken for in
definite postponement of the bill
