PREVENflOrT 07 CRUELTY TO
The following is all the law in ex
istence in these Islands with regard
to the Prevention of Cruelty to Ani
mals: ""Whoever shall ci nelly beat, tor
ment, or inflict suffering upon any
horse, ox, mule, or other animal
belonging to another, shall he pun
ished by imprisonment at hard" labor
not more than three months, or by
fine not exceeding one hundred dol
lars. If the animal belong to him
self he Bhall be punished by a line
of five dollars for the first olfencc,
and an additional five dollars for
every subsequent offence, and in
'default of payment shall bo impri
sonedfliit hard labor not exceeding
Mark tin artistic eye for imper
ceptible shades of color apparent ju
nibls law. Of course it makes all the
difference in the world to the horso
or "other animal" whether he is
maimed by his owner, or by another j
man, wo know this by the difference
in the fine. The existence of fowl,
ducks, etc., is very properly not
noticed, as it is well known that
these biids are incapable of feeling,
and therefore indifferent to being
Mining up by the legs, etc.
Scavenging and road making arc go
ing on in this city in the busiest streets
the town during the busiest hours
'ot the day. Klsowhcie these neces
sary annoyances arc so limed that
the least possible inconvenience is
inflicted on the public. To see and
hear a stciim roller pulling aud pant
ing along the main artery of a busy
town amongst flrightcned horses with
drivers, terrified if women, profane if
men, is a sight peculiar to Honolulu.
For the last few days gangs of
prisoners have been employed in
scooping out tho road side gutters of
Fort street from Hotel to Kuktii
street and the shovel full of dust
thrown high up into a cart, or
pitched up on the sidewalk, with a
brisk trade wind blowing rendered
the passage through Fort street as
disagreeable an experience as one
can well imagine. '
With all due dcfetcncc to the feel
ing of the prisoners and their Itmas,
their love of regular hours, their
distaste for early rising and 'late
taking rest, we venture to suggest
that between f o'clock and 7 a.m.
and the same hours p.m. a great
deal of the more offensive and dan
gerous part of the work might be
done. The regulation of this matter
is within roach of the authority of
the Minister of Interior, and we
respectfully invite his attention to
THE CHINESE BILL.
Whatever may be thought oi the
details of Hon. Cecil Brown's pro
posed Act for the Registration of
Chinese there can be no doubt about
the necessity for law to that effect.
The Chinaman in Hawaii has several
distinct advantages over any other
foreign resident, and it is but right
that these should be some how
balanced even if it cause inconven
ience to worthy, orderly, but not
identifiable residents. The great
mass of Chinamen here, are to the
other icsidents, native or foreign,
people uhosc language is unintelligi
ble, whose writing is not to be
deciphered, whose names are indistin
guishable, and whose persons are to
sa3' the least, difficult of recognition.
There are but few people here, the
Interpreter of the Supreme Court, and
a few of the principal merchants, who
understand both Chinese and any
The first object of the bill then is
to provide means of indentification,
and to this tho Chinaman ought not
to object. The 'better classes, as
merchants, the respectable domestic
servants either universally known or
recognisable by their employers or
others with whom they are thrown
into daily contact, may be
exempted from any interference or.
But for the shoals or herds of
lately arrived, unskilled, hand to
mouth laborer, he it is, or rather
they, for their only pronounceable
name is Legion .who should be com
pelled to carry with them means of
identification. While the whole
country is suffering from the high
price of labor, these men may met
by dozens snuntering along Nuuanu
Avenue or elsewhere with arms
folded, occupied only in scrutinising
the various fences, doors, and win
dows of the houses along the road.
This may be a very innocent pastime
but may-be-no. These sturdy vag
rants arc evidently wellfcd, and yet
are wasting the working hours of the
dny. In some country districts the
case is even worse, not only idlers,
but unlicensed peddlers, liquor sel
lers, and snnppers up of "(inconsi
derable trifles," robbers of henroosts
outbuildings or even dwelling houses
pervade the country. These men
have no ostensible means of liveli
hood. It is well known, neverthe
less, that they are supported in
idleness, or worse, by their country
men for the express purpose of
limiting the supply and so keeping
up the price of labor. At the Planters
meeting in October last this subject'
was referred to, and one gentleman
who certainly knew what lie was
talking of, a lurge employer himself
stated that ten working Chinamen
would maintain fifty idlers.
Chinese contractors and sub con
tractors and district over men,
combine to prevent their countrymen
from engaging for any but the
cxoibitant rate of wage fixed by
agreement among themselves. It is
here' that what may be culled the
heller class of Chinese is to blame.
They know and cab probably control
this abuse, or at least modify it, so
as long as this matter 'remains as it
is at present they have no right is
complain, if in self defense,' the 11011
Chinese portions of the community
endeavor, by legislative action to
bring under control the existing
crowd of dangerous idlers.

It is said that this Assembly
presents a more intelligent and re
spectable body of legislators than
the country has had for ten years.
It certainly never had a more in
triguing Ministry to deal with.
Definite action must be taken
upon the subject of Chinese immi
gration, so as to place its regulation
beyond tho control of one Minister,
" Cabinet Council " or Foreign Of
fice legislation is a dangerous thing.
The Legislature should not fail
to provide a retreat for children who
are suspected of having leprosy,
where they may be treated and
nursed. It is cruel to confine them
with the advanced cases, and take
all hope from them.
The trouble between the Min
ister of Foreign Affairs and the At
torney General arises mainly from
the difference in education of the
two men. Moreover, the Attorney
General is too truthful and sincere
to feel drawn towards his colleague.
He supports him the best he can but
he don't trust him.
The results of the legislation at
this session will determine whether
or not increased taxation will be im
perative at the next .session. If the
course pursued by the Government
during the past two years bo en
dorsed and continued, it is not im
probable that an extra session will
have to be called within a year to
take steps for the relief of tho treasury.

shall I manage the King and my col

and a few of those impudent Repre

think I could manage the King as I
have before, with flattery and prom
ises, if it wasn't for these fellows."
His Majesty's thought: "Well,
I guess I'll let old Gibby run on a
little longer. I don't like to dis
charge him just now. The poor old
man thinks I'm only a weak minded
fqllow wlo is satisfied with flattery
and money, but ho has tried so hard
to please mo that I guess I wont
turn him off just now. I'll let tho
Legislature go for him and compel
me to dismiss hira."
REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON ELEC
TIONS, LANAI AND MOLOKAI.
In Ihc matter of the petition con
testing the election of Hon. S. K.
Ktipihea and J. Nokalckn. Ueport
of the Judiciary Committee.
To the Honorable Godfrey Rho
des, President of the Legislative
The Judiciary Committee to whom
was referred the petition from Molo
kni and Lanai contesting tho election
of Hon. S. K. Ktipihea and Hon. J.
Nakalcka, report as follows :
They have taken the evidence of
numerous witnesses who wcic pre
sent at the Lanai election, against
which the charges were made, and
although it is clearly proved that
three persons who lived on Molokai,
one of whom had been convicted of
larceny and two of whom were South
Sea Islanders, were allowed to vote
at Lanai, without exhibiting their
tax receipts, and that a person named
Henry Gibson, who was working for
the election of the said S. K. Ktipi
hea and J. Nakalcka, brought liquor
into the room where the ballot-box
was stationed, and dealt it out by
the glass to those present during the
election hours, and that considerable
drunkenness and confusion ensued,
yet it did not appear from the evi
dence that theic had been sufficient
irregularity in connection, with the
polling of votes at Lanai to justify
the committee to recommend that
the election of either of the said
representatives should be set aside.
The committee cannot be silent in
regard to the impropriety of tho
Lanai election, in allowing the drink
ing of intoxicating liquors in the
room where the balloting was going
on, in view of the great danger of
such license and its natural results
to the purity of elections.
They recommend that the consi
deintion of the said petition to in
Editou Bulletin : While on the
subject of diseased hoisc flesh and
its contagious character to humanity,
it would be well for the Legislators ,
and the public generally to look into
this matter a little more thoroughly
in its connection with stabling in
densely populated parts of the city.
Take for instance, a point on Punch
bowl street between Palace walk and
Printers lane where you have within
a stones throw no less than six
stables five of which arc in, close
proximity with private dwellings and
the horses known to be ailing, six or
eight of whoinjiave been shot lately
as incurable. And this too in and
alongside the premises of Hon. J. E.
Bush and his neighbors, Hon. G.
Brown to say nothing of the Mr.
Macfarlanc's swamp' stables across
Such being the case is there any
wonder that heads of families in that
vicinity should feel some alarm at
this time, or would there be any
wonder if these gentlemen should
work together for the exclusion of
stables from the city.
