THE BLACK LIST.
There has been so great a demand
for yesterday's issue of the Bulletin,
containing the "Black List'" that
wo republish the list to-day. This
list should be saved for reference at
the next election for Representatives,
and every Roprcscntativcswho figutes
thereon should bo retired to private
life for all time.
A LESSON TO BE LEARNED
From this session of the Legislature
is, that no olfiec holder can be
trusted as a Representative. Of the
14 ofllec holders in the Assembly,
not one has shown the sliqhtcgt
degree of independence or principle.
They have been servile puppets who
have jumped when touched by the
Ministerial finger, and shouted when
told that shouting time hnd come.
Their vote lias been cast blind for
the Ministry, irrespective of the in
terests of their constituents .and of
their duties as Representatives. The
Ministers might as well be given 14
additional votes at once, and tho ex
pense of tho superfluous members,
who do nothing but echo the voice
of the power behind, be saved.
Let the electors take this lesson to
heart, and the session of 1881 will
not have been in vain ; Let no office
holder be elected a Representative.
A RECOMMENDATION THAT SHOULD
BE ACTED UPON.
The Finance Committee report
that they find that the Immigration
accounts have been kept entirely
without books, and that hundreds of
thousands of dollars are accounted
for only by loose papers and
touchers. The accounts will not
balance by 85,000, and the only an
swer the Secretary of the Board
could make, when asked how much
money he had received and spent
was, "go through those papers and
add 'cm up, and you'll know as
much as I do." This disreputable
snarl is all that the country has to
vouch for the expenditure of $688,
000, and the Committee recom
mend that experts be employed to
unravel the accounts.
This money that has been so
recklessly spent, is public money,
and it is eminently proper that the
Legislature should see the thing
through, and find out just how the
matter stands. Let us have the
Immigration Bureau sifted down
EXPLANATION THAT IS WORSE
THAN THE CHARGE.
The Opposition charge I hat thrj
Cabinet lias illegally expended money
upon the authority of Cabinet Reso
lutions. The statement was made last Fri
day, by the Advertiser, that the
reason the Cabinet had appropriated
moneys by Cabinet Resolution, wiw
because they thought there was a
credit on account of the loan fund,
of $3GO,000, while in fact there was
no such credit.
The Attorney Geneial leferred to
this statement during last Saturday's
discussion, and tacitly admitted it to
be tho truth.
As a matter of fact, the Loan
Fund is overdrawn more than $300,
000. We have then, a Minister of Fi
nance of such marked financial
ability, that, although his own books
show that the Loan Fund is $300,000
in debt, he reports to the Cabinet
that he has an unexpended balance
That is the kind of a man we like
to sec managing the finances of tho
nation. A man who can, by a
breath, transform a debt of $300,000
into a cash balance of $3C0,000, is
a rare treasure, and should be put
in a glass case, labeled, this side up
We have also a Cabinet, which,
upon its own lcsponsibility, and the
word of a man who can not tell the
Debit from tho Credit side of his
ledger, appropriates and spends
money in violation of every law
upon the subject, without taking the
trouble to find out whether there
was any money to spend or not.
Veiily this is tho kind of a cabinet
that the Bulletin' dclightcth to
honor. Give us a cabinet that is
not bound down by such trivial
things as the constitution and the
law, or tho amount of ilfty lucre in
the Treasury, but which can raise
the wind and improve the country
by transferring six figures from the
Dr. to tho Cr. side of the cash book.
This is the kind of a Cabinet to
command the confidence of the
nation. What arc you growling at
you "ragged," sore-headed, ofllec
seeking oppositionists V"
AN ORGAN FOR THE LEPERS AT
The movement which has been
started to obtaiu money to buy a
musical instrument for tho lepers at
Kakaako, is one which appeals to
tho sympathies of every one. The
only instrument which they now
have is a harmonica. Cut off as
these poor unfortunates are from all
association with tho outside world,
the least that can be done for them
is to make life as bearable as may
be during the few years which re
main to them.
In older that all may feel able to
contribute, the subscriptions will be
limited to $1 each.

Monday, June 30.
The House assembled at 10 a. jr.
After prayer by the Chaplain, the
reading of the minutes was delayed
until twenty minutes past ten, owing
to a quorum not being present.
While the members were waiting,
Mr. Nawahi moved that the House
adjourn until the now Ministry was
Mr. Kamakcle presented a petition
from Mnkawao, with 145 signatures,
that the national debt be all paid off
during the next two years. Referred
to Finance Committee.
Mr. Hitchcock, on suspension of
the rules, read a petition relating to
Government land leased to foreigners.
Referred to Judiciary Committee.
Mr. Kauwila, from Puna, that the
House do not pass any Act to in
demnify the Ministers for any
monies they have spent. Laid on
Mr. Kaulinne, that $15,000 be ap
propriated for improving roads, dis
trict of Kau. Referred to Commit
tee on Public Lands.
Mr. Hitchcock, that the jail and
court house at Laupahochoe be re
paired, and the salaries of the Sher
iff and Jailor be increased. Referred
to Committee on Miscellaneous Pe
titions. Mr. Nahinu, from Napoopoo and
Ilookena, relating to the landing of
Mr. G. Brown, from Finance
Committee, reported on several pe
titions relating to the refunding of
taxes illegally paid, that a sum of
I $08.25 be inserted in the Appropria
tion Bill to liquidate the same. The
report was accepted and laid on
table. Also, relating to a bill to de
fine the payment of monies into the
Treasury, the same be laid on table.
Mr. W. O. Smith gave notice of a
bill to appoint a Police Justice at
Mr. Nahinu offered a resolution
that $700 be appropriated for im
pioving landings at Hookena, Na
poopoo and IIoopolo, South Kona.
Laid on table.
Mr. Kaulukou gave notice of a
bill relating to the appointment of
Mr. Pilipo, a resolution that the
Minister of Interior slate in which
districts and to what purposes $82,
822.33 was spent of tho money for
road tax. Carried.
Mr. Kaulukou moved tho order of
the day. Carried.
Mr. Pilipo said : Wc spent con
siderable time on Saturday discus-'
sing the ways the moneys hud been
.spent, and tho result was that the
Nobles and Representatives were
equally divided. Never, in the his
tory of the Legislature, !ns so large
a number of Nobles voted, and they
are appointed by His Majesty. If
thero is no confidence in this Minis
try, it is no use this Assembly going
on to place large sums of money in
Minister Kapena, said if the Min
ister were going out to-day or to
morrow it would not affect the going
on with the appropriation bill. The
appropriations must bo made who
ever is in office.
Mr. Pilipo saidIf tho Ministers
will say they are going to resign to
day we will go on. But if these
Ministers are going to keep their
commissions in their pockets, then I
have a right tc speak. T move that

the consideration of the appropria
tion bill be postponed until after the
Ministry have resigned.
Mr. Kaulukou, thought tho lion,
member ought to let the matter test,
as the resolution was defeated. I
think his remarks arc made to delay
the consideration of the appropriation
Mr. W. O. Smith said he didn't
wonder that the feeling still existed.
I think wc ought to go on with tho

The appropriation bill was then
Department of Foreign Affairs :
Salary of Minister 12000
Salary of Secretary C000
Salary of Under Secretary -1000
Minister Gibson in referring to
this new item said the work of the
Foreign Office had much increased,
twenty-eight new consuls had been
added, making altogether about
cigiity. It was beneficial to the
country to keep up a wide spread
correspondence. I have been a
faithful worker in this particular
department. I get up carl' and
spend hours before I arrive here, to
prepare work for tho secretary to do.
The work is large and considerable.
Mr. W. O. Smith asked the Minis
ter how it was that if Mr. Webb is so
overworked that he had time to work
for the P. G. Advertiser?
Minister Gibson said when he was
nominally editor of the IJ. G. A.
he only gave points and for days ho
did not write anything at all.
Mr. Dole said I believe in pnj
ing a man well who works and does
necessary duties for the state. Tlicie
is a tendency to increase the months
that arc sucking at the state cow
and I object to it. The state can
not stand it. The Attorney General
is more extravagant than any of his
predecessors. What does the Minis
ter want extra help for to keep up
obscure correspondence with obscure
countries? Mr. Webb has been able
to do the work and carry on a news
paper business a3 fwell, and a daily
paper at that. It is another attempt
to make an office for another indivi
dual. On a show of hands being taken
the item was struck out.
Salary of copyist $2400. Passed.

"A change is needed in the man

"The gentlemen who fill these
two offices are old servants of the
Government, and are esteemed for
their integrity and personal worth,
but they have fallen in to a certain
routine performance of their duties
which tends to impair the value of
their services. Instead of devoting
their energies' to the active super
vision and personal inspection of
the Police Department of the King

the petty details of their respective

THE AHMED FOKCK.
The "Armed Force," "Mounted
Police," or "Mounted Constabu
lary," as it is variously styled, is an
institution which was established on
the strength of an appropria
tion for an " Armed Force
Contingent Fund, to be expended
by advice of the King and Cabinet
Council, for the Islands of Maui,
Kauai and Hawaii."
Although established only in
August, 1883, at the end of nine
months (March 31st, 1881), it had
cost the country $33,811.55.
Instead of securing men a quainter!
with the geogiaphy and people of
the Districts in which they were to
serve and selected for their qualifica
tions, the force has been made up
mainly of irresponsible youth, taken
from a lawless class from the streets
Captain A. B. Haley, who com
mands the force, states in his report,
published by the Attorney General,
that "the men who were first enrolled,
did not as a body, prove a very
respectable class. I was compelled
to get rid of eight." And the com
mittee have ascertained that of the
twelve men sent to Maui in February
last, six have been discharged ; one
for misconduct and five for insubor
dination. There is no question that such a
force can render service and be of
some use as auxilliaiy to the regular
police force; but we aro of the
opinion that tho expenses attending
the maintenance of a force, such as
lias been attempted, is entirely dis
proportioned to the value of their
services. We do not believe that
an' such force is required.
After a full consideration of the
subject, and in view of the public
needs, ami revenues, we believe that
the public interests will be better
served 113 the disbandment of the
"Armed Force," than by its mainten
ance and therefore recommend that no
further appiopriations be made for the
object. Onthe3rdinst. the force com
prised 15 men in Honolulu, and 6 on

directed efficiently and wisely. The
programme of exercises, published
in our last issue, was faithfully ex
ecuted. Each scltool was under the
immediate direction of its own super
intendent, and performed its part
well and nobly. The usual variety
of singing, recitations, and answers
to questions made up an extremely
interesting and entertaining exhibi

and foreigners patronised the occa

Editoi: Bulletin: One of the
occasional intellectual treats to which
it is the goo'd fortune of Honolulu
to have access, was furnished last
cveninig at Fort St. Church, by the
Rev. Dr. Bcckwith. His lecture on
"Life and Culture" was delivered
as the first in a course of annual
lectures to be furnished by the
Trustees of Oahu College, on edu
cational topics. During the even
ing, ho referred to the low intellec
tual standard of San Francisco,
evidenced by the fact that it is diffi
cult to procure a good audience
for a scientific or philosophical dis
course, but a low browed brute
whose attainments are shown only
through his fists, is welcomed to the
City of the Golden Gate, with
music and the hurrahs of thirty
thousand admirers. The Reverend
gentleman did not intend this as a
sarcasm, but it was a most stinging
rebuke to our city which boasts of
its high literary taste and general
culture, which turned out by the
thousand to witness the races and
games at Kapiolani Park, on the
11th, yet could but afford a scant'
hundred and fifty or two hundred to
hoar this masterly address last even
ing. For shame Honolulu ! Horc
after please keep silence on your
culture and taste, unless by culture
and taste you mean a taste for
bruising and fisticuffs! Citizen.
Wo do not think the strictures
of Citizen are altogether merited.
Tho Trustees of Oahu College must
father a good part of the failure of
the public to attend, in that the
lecture was not properly advertised.
But very few people knew that
thero was to be such a lecture. Ed.
