THE VETO OF THE ANTI-CHINESE
. BOOK-KEEPING BILL
Was announced in the Assembly, last
night. This is tin illustration of the
warm and hearty sympathy which
exists between the King and the
cabinet, since all the cabinet favor
ed and voted for the bill, and Neu
mann staked his reputation upon
upon it's passage. Poor Paul I Af
ter the announcement of the veto,
he wandered out into the hall and
gloomily contemplated the shadows.
His emotions well -nigh suffocated
him as he thought of the vast horde
of fraudulent Chinese who would stick
their tongues into their cheeks and
wag their tails and .sweetly smile,
and keep on keeping their accounts
in hieroglyphics. The thought
was to much for him, and he went
out and leaned his curly head against
a concrete pillar and wept, poor
Paul, we feel for you.
WHAT THE OPPOSITION HAS ACCOM
PLISHED. The Organ of the Government
ring declares that the Opposition
has accomplished nothing; and
sneeringly asks what measures they
have passed, and what captives they
have brought home to Home bound
to their ehnriot. wheels. In the sense
that the Free uSoilers of the United
States failed to accomplished any
thing in 1852 and 1850, the Opposi
tion has accomplished nothing. In
the sense that they have been able
to stem the torrent of extravagance,
collusive raising of salaries, and
corrupt buying of votes they have
accomplished nothing. In the sense
that they have been able to arouse a
sense of honor, of decency, of
loyalty in the breasts of the ofllcc
holding assemblymen, they have ac
complished nothing. In the sense
that they have convinced the King
that his present course is impolitic,
unconstitutional and suicidal, they
have accomplished nothing. Rut
what the opposition has accom
plished, is, the demonstration that
among Hawaiians and foreigners,
men of honor, men of principle who
can not he bought with money or
olllcc, still exist in the Kingdom,
and arc willing to sacrifice their time,
their money and their personal coin
fort for the public good. It has
succeeded in unearthing and bring
ing to light more illegality, more scan
dals, and more dishonest Jobbery than
has disgraced the history of the
Government from the timo of Kamelia
mcha I. to the initiation of theKala
kaua Gibson combination. It has
succeeded ii. arousing public atten
tion and public opinion from the
lcthergy which has bound it for
years, and focused it upon the nest
of corruption which poses under the
name of the Hawaiian Government.
As the party of freedom sustained
defeat for years in the United States,
but was finally triumphant, 'and as
the people of Norway have for
seventy years struggled for constitu
tional liberty and conquered it from
an unwilling sovereign, so is the
independent opposition to day,
, ' although not yet triumphant, mulls-
li "eouraged and ready to continue tho
fight. We predict that the day is
not far distant when the King of
Hawaii, liko the King of Norway,
will be compelled, willingly or un
willing, to listen to tlic voice of nn
hoimst, unbought loyal Legislature,
and to recognize the principle that
the Government is for the peoplo
and not for the King, and that the
Hawaiian Government must and
shall be conducted honestly and
MR. SAMUEL NOTT
Has heretofore maintained a good
reputation in tins community, but
when thc'Orgaii tnkes to recommend
ing anybody, (t is a pretty sine sign
that there is a screw loose somewhere,
and the public had belter look closely
at the change they take from any
one whom the Organ vouches for as
"an able honest and elllcicntolllcial"
or a "great nnd good man." There
arc exceptions, however, to every
rule, and it is possible that the object
of the Organ is to heap coals of lire
upon Mr. Nott's head in return for
the following communication, which
is a 6amplc of the correspondence
the Organ is in daily receipt of.

Minister Neumann said secret
societies were those which shut out
the public from their proceedings
by means of secret passwords,
signs, etc. The bill was directed
against secret societies of the Chi
nese. It was well-known that those
people maintained on some of the
Islands societies opposed to the
peace and' property of tho commu
nity. It would be no hardship to

to present to the Government a list
of their principal members and a

Harbor' items came up, wanted to
have the items changed from $50,000

C. II. Judd, $1,377.39; Geo.
Lucas, $5,052.57; A. S. Cleghorn,
$750.20; F. II. Rraidwood, $1,533.

20; H. M.'s Chamberlain, $785;
G. W. Macfarlanc & Co., $1,905.10.
Mr. Kalua spoko warmly against
these bills coming in tho last day
but ono befor prorogation.
Mr. C. II. Judd (Chamberlain,)
said lie had laid the items before the
Finance Committee and had hoped
they would have bpen brought in
earlier. A good many of them
were for finishing the Palace.
Mr. Dole asked the Minister of
the Interior why these accounts
were not brought in earlier.
Minister Gulick replied that ho
did not know if there was an op
portunity for bringing them in
earlier. Tills scorned to him to bo
about as opportune a time to bring
Uicin in as any time.
Mr. Dole snid he regarded that as
an impertinent answer of His Ex
cellency. The House hnd been on
the Appropriation Bill for the past
two months, and if the Ministers
had not brought these accounts in
for wnnt of nn opportunity, then
they did not understand their busi
ness. Ah far ns the Assembly could
judge by that answer they had deli
berately kept back these items be
lieving this was the best time, to suit
themselves, to, bring them in.
"Whom the gods wish to destroy
they first make mad." Tho Minis
ters arc piling up this black record
against themselves ns if they wished
to destroy all hope of their salvation.
No one In this Assembly or in the
Hawaiian Islands have done acts
which arc more severe upon thorn
than themselves, and this is one of
them. And they seem to bo doing
their best to blacken the name of
the King and to bring him into con
tempt before the nation. He under
stood that one of these items, which
had been put dowai to Macfarlano &
Co., was not ono which this Assem
bly has anything to do with. It was
for carriages, harness and pictures
for His Majesty. They, knowing
that these items could not stand in
vestigation, have kept them till the
last .moment hoping to escape inves
tigation. It was a trick and it would
be unworthy of any member of this
JIousc to support the Ministry in it.
lie supposed Hint there wore some
of these items wliicli the country
should pay, and that there were
others which no one but His Majesty
should pay. They could not find
out how the account should stand
except by investigation of it by the
proper Committee. Where was the
time for the Finance Committee to
investigate, however? Committee
men arc made of flesh and blood
and must have some time to sleep.
His Majesty did not want his own
privntc expenses, for which lie re
ceives S70,000, paid by extra appro
priations he did not want to come
there as a beggar to have His debts
paid. lie supported the motion of
Mr. Kalua to refer the accounts to
the Finance Committee.
