THE GUN POWDER PLOT.
A heiics of events have taken
place, and aic now taking place,
which aic of import to all residents
of these Islands. The ridiculous
'gattliug gun" electioneering bun
combe of several years ago, as
materialized, and thousands of dol
lars of public funds have been
equandcred on ordnance and muni
tions of war. The King is now
engineering an Army and Navy Bill
in the Legislature, which is to appro
priate some S1.")0,000, and cmploj
300 more soldiers. If this was all,
it might be taken as another chapter
in the coionntion escapade; simply
another edition of the fuss and
feathers tune for the simple tax
payer to dance to. But when wo
learn that the King is cunstt noting a
private powder magazine in his back
yard, it begins to look interesting.
The situation looks about like this:
The King knows that he is un
popular. He knows that the icspou
sibility for the piesent bad Govern
ment is laid at his door; and lie
knows that the people arc getting
tired of this kind of thing. His
proposition therefore is to make a
fortified camp of the Palace yard,
and hite enough men to hool the
icstol us if objection should lake
any stronger form than woids. This
may be all right, and it may be none
of the public's business ; but when
the public is asked to foot the bills,
and pay for the back yard magazine,
and accompaniments, it is about
time the public had something to
say on the bubject.
We might go on and morali.c
about a chief uijcrs strength lying in
the heaits of his subjects, and the
jmpotency of gun powder to rule
an unwilling people ; but moralizing
seldom docs any good, and more
over, morals do not seem to have a
plnce in the constitution of this
Government; it is like Artemus
Ward, who auswered, when asked
what his principles were, "Piinci
plcs! Navy principles. I'm in the
fchow business! "
THE ORGAN AND THE LOTTERY BILL'.
The Organ, as usual, rushes to
the rcscuo of the Turkey combina
tion this morning, and says in
connection with 3Ir. Bishop's ic
signation, that "The Lottery Bill
had no friends. Everyone opposed
it." This is ever the way with the
independent journal. While a doubt
ful measure is pending, it remains
cither silent, or seated squat cly on
the fence; but after the mcasuic has
been defeated gets down off the fence
and rushes out like a terrier pup and
worries the poor dead carcass as
brave as a lion. When the organ
says that every one opposed the
Lo(cry Bill, it knows that it is
wandering from the path of rectitude
and veracity. The Organ knows,
or it ought to know, being the mouth
piece of the ring, that tlio King
favored tlio Lottery Bill ; that the
Cabinet favored tlio Lottery Bill,
and that the whole unholy following
of the Cabinet in the assembly voted
for it, on a motion to veject it. On
the whole the fence is the Orguns
safest feeding ground, for it gives
itself dead away every lime it gets
I down fiom that vantage ground.
STRICT ATTENTION TO BUSINESS
On the part of the honest portion
of the Assembly is the only thing
that will keep the cabinet and their
unprincipled backers from rushing
all kinds of jobs through the house.
The way in which the Board of
Genealogy swindle was manipulated
on Saturday is a sample. Strict atten
tion and regular attendance on the
part of every member of the Legisla
ture is the only safe guard against
jobbery, a.nd each individual member
should feci a personal lcsponsibility
in the matter.

The House resumed in Committee
of the Whole, beginning where it

a prolonged discussion upon an
amendment to reduce to 8125 a
month, the prescribed two hours
expired, and the Committee rose
Reconsideration of the liquor
amendment Act was resumed in the
Section 9, amending old Section
17, providing for otllcial designation
of licensed houses, was read.
Mr. Hitchcock moved to inde
finitely postpone the section, as the
old law was sulllcient.
Mr. Katilukou moved to amend
by .substituting the corresponding
clause of another bill upon the
Mr. Hitchcock strongly urged the
rejection of Mr. Kaulukou's amend
ment, as it, by giving the Minister
of the Interior authority, without
the consent of the Privy Council, to
license places outside of Honolulu,
was designed to spread the trafllc
all over the Islands.
Mr. "W. O. Smith followed, de
precating any movement in the
direction of granting licenses out
side of Honolulu, near the planta
tions. The licensed sale of liquor
at Wailuku, for instance, would do
more harm than any other thing
that could be introduced there. He
was sure the amendment did not
originate with the Government nor
with the Attorney-General, who no
doubt would prefer in this matter to
be guided by the Privy Council.
Mr. Dole said the member for
Honolulu had, since the first of the
session, boon the consistent advo
cate of free liquor, and when he
went home his conscience would not
trouble him. lie (the speaker) had
not yet been convinced that the best
thing for the public was free liquor.
The King and Privy Council were
the proper custodians of the privi
lege of granting license". He hoped
that honorable body would appre
ciate the amendment. There was
another cunning point in the amend
ment. Instead of bringing in the
matter of outside license fees when
that subject was before tho House,
he has tacked on to tho end of the
Act, where it has no business, a
provision that tlio fee for out dis
tricts shall be 8500, instead of tho
iMJk.M ,; .m$-k
$1,000 enacted for all retail licenses
in the kingdom. He should support
Mr. Hitchcock's amendment, de
signed to preserve intact the existing
safeguard of having the power of
granting licences' vested in the King
Mr. Pilipo said the member for
Honolulu evidently desired to force
rum upon the country districts. His
district of Kona, he was sure, pre
ferred good roads to rum. So long
as the member for Honolulu could
get as much liquor as lie wanted, he
ought to be satisfied.
The motion to indefinitely postpone
the section was carried.
Mr. Kaulukou's motion was re
jected upon the follow ing division :

was supnorted by Air. "W. O. Smith,

Kaulukou's bill, including the
striking out of names and inserting
a provision to sell the right to con
struct street railways to the highest
bidder. The minority, Alcssrs.
Iscnbcrg and Cleghorn, submitted a
new bill going over the whole
ground, providing that the Alinister
of the Interior with the advise of
the King in Privy Council be au
thorized to sell to the highest bidder,
after due notice, the right to con
struct street railwnj'3 in streets to
be designated by the King in Privy
Council; that the purchaser shall

gagement; that the bolder of the

by the owner of the railway; that
five cents be the highest rate
charged each passenger between
Kceaumoku street, Judd street and
the Reformatory School, and ten
cents beyond those limits, with
other regulations usual in such
Air. Isenberg advocated tho new
bill, saying both the others were
Air. Dole thought the offer of
such a franchise at auction was un
precedented. Air. W. O. Smith moved that the
new bill be printed and made the
order of tho day for Thursday,
which carried over several motions
before the House.
Air. Dole presented the following

moved to lay the resolution on the
Air. Aholo supported the resolu
tion, holding that the Appropiialion
Bill was for tho period, beginning
Apiil 1st, and the intention of the

Air. Kaulukou snid lie had ic
ceived an increase as district magis
trate from the Pint of the period, but

Mr. W. O. Smith said the Ap

distiict being made inn lumpsum
and the officers holding their posi
tions at the discretion of the sheriff
Alinister Neumann's motion carried.
The House at noon took a recess

HE CAME, HE PLAYED, HE CONQUERED.
Last evening, Remcnyi the prince
of violinists appeared before a Hono
lulu audience for the first time. Our
beautiful Alusic Hall was filled with
an audience of our best and most
cultivated people, and an nudienco
which fully appreciated the fact that
a master was before them. Hemenyi
is a master, in a double sense:
master of his instrument, and master
of ins audience. He appeared like
one inspired, and his noble instru
ment seemed sentient as under his
majestic hand its pure, melodic,
and at times human like -voice so
lcplcte with poetic, soulful expres
sion, gave out tones of most ex
quisite beauty aud grandeur, while
every heart of his large enraptured
audience throbbed in unison. As
soon as Hemenyi appeared lie was
gicctcd with a storm of applause.
Ho first began with a fantasia on
"Ilugcnots." The performance was
a most wonderful one and had such
an effect on the audience as is not
often witnessed. He was compelled
to respond, and played a Serenade
by Schubert in an ideal manner The
power and loveliness of Bemenyi's
playing added new charms to this
well-known music, for his perfect
tones were so full of throbbing
tenderness, that they spoke directly
to the hearts of his hearers. He
next played "Hungarian Alclodies,"
and it was a wonder to the audience
thnt such music could be drawn from
the violin. The playing of the great
artist in this number was received
with persistent applause and hearty
stouts of "Bravo1 Bravo!" As an
encore, he played a medley of popular
American airs ' which completely
electrified his audience, the same ex
pression referring to bis last number
"Capriccios" byPagani, to which he
responded with the "Caruival of
Venice." It seemed as though the
audience could not get enough of
Remcnyi. We shall probably not
look upon his like again in this city,
and it behooves us to improve his
presence here, and do him honor.
AIisi Hattio B. .Downing t)ic lady
vocalist of the, occasion saiig',,Non
fa Sagno'' by IVcrdi as her 'first
number. This lady, who studied
Under Madame 'Itudcrsdorf, and
more lcccntly in Paris, has a very
pleasing voice, and is used in a
manner which shows that careful
tuition nnd faithful study have been
devoted to its cultivation, in the ait
of expression as well as in the scienco
of vocalism. At the close of her selec
tion, she was obliged to respond to
a well-merited encore, and sung very
charmingly "Supposing" by Well
ings. Later on she sung "Dream
ing" by Wcllings receiving an
enthusiastic re-call, and also a beau
tiful boquet of flowers. Air. Rudolph
Ilimmer possess a very fine and
pleasing tenor voice, under excellent
culture, nnd gave with much tasto
two - solos.'jThe first, song by
Millard, was loudly re-demanded, to
which ho responded with "Yon and
I," a song which lias a little history.
Tho words werq written on board the
Alariposa on her down trip by a lady
passenger Miss Champ, who was
ii tr JiBwmw i rv v f ..,. .
present in the audience last evening.
The music was composed the day
previous to the conceit by Air. Luck
stone tho pianist, and is a beautiful
composition, reflecting great credit
on him. Air. Himnicr's second num
ber "Forget nic not" by Rubcnstcin,
was excellently rendered nnd
encored, be singing in response, a
German song by Lassen. Last but
not least is Air. Isador Luckstonc
pianist and musical director of the
ovening. Tills gentleman was the
recipient of a most unusual honor,
namely, playing the first number on
a programme and receiving a double
encore. This first number 'Faust
Waltz" by Liszt was magnificently
tilarcd and created a veritable
furore, to which ho was obliged to
respond to, and after doing so, was
again compelled to come out and
bow his acknowledgements. He
possesses a fine and cultivated
technique, which is at onco clear and
nccuratc ; morcver, not lacking in
power. Air. Luckstonc lias promise
of a very bright career, none who
had the pleasure of hearing him can
well doubt. His accompaniments to
the various numbers throughout the
evening, were most artistically
played. He thoroughly understands
the art of accompaniment to perfec
tion. A lovely duet "Night in
Venice" by Aliss Downing and Air.
Dimmer closed one of the finest and
most artistic concerts ever given in
