The Government clique that raised
a fierce outcry against the idea of
the King being discussed wcic, it
appeals, only afiaid that a discus
sion of so wide a scope would un
mask their own had statecraft. For
all the blustering of the Government
clique, we wcic not keen to discuss
the King, but only claimed the light
so to do, if, for instance, it became
clear thai he was answerable for the
piescnt deplorable condition of the
country's affairs. Wc arc picpared
to admit that, although the desire of
the people for the lcmoval of the
present Cabinet lias for some time
been apparent enough, yet the fact
remains that such desire lias not
found a definite constitutional voice.
When the Lcgislaluie voted con
fidence in the Ministry one day
and passed censure upon them
another, and when a popular petition
for their removal was followed by
another for their retention, there is
room for leniency in an impartial
opinion of His Majesty's hesitation
to do what his piivate sense must
have dictated as the first step in the
salvation ol (lie country namely,
the dismissal of the Cabinet icsponsi
blc for the utter demoralization
reigning tluoiighout every dcpail
ment of Government. We are not
inclined to lay much sttess upon the
fact that the niembeis of Cabinet
voted for themselves in the Legisla
ture, for if a new and better Cabinet
were appointed without a dissolution
and appeal to the country, its mem
bers would probably, in the present
composition of the Legislature, have
either to vote to sustain themselves
or immediately resign. Again, we
do not sec much ground for sharp
criticism of llisMajc-jty in the claim
that a majority of representatives
were returned to oppose the present
i Cabinet. If a eettain number of
representatives betrayed their con
stituents, the fact does not invalidate
the constitutional etfeel of their
votes, and this or any other country
mist take what it gets in return for
choosing unprincipled men as legis
lators. The more we consider the
matter, the plainer does it seem that
the real motive of all the fervid
jealousy for the royal preiogatives,
displayed on the side of the Govern
ment, was fear that free discussion
would only bring out their responsi
bility in a clearer light than ever,
inducing a tide of indignation thai
would sweep them out of the way.
It is a noteworthy fact that the un
governable fury let loose against us
in the Government organ followed
immediately upon an article in these
columns calling the Ministers to
account, as His Majesty's responsi
ble advisers, for the llagrant indignity
perpetrated upon the Legislature in
vetoing its ineasuies wholesale.
They simply could not afford to
have their true position, as cither
'rejected advisers of the Crown or
traitors to the Legislature, made bate.

"'o ncl of tlic King shall have any

above icniaiks we hae given the
full benefit of the doubt, as to the
true sentiment of the country, to
His Majesty. The Legislature, as
to its proceedings, and the people,
as to their availing of their right of
petition, having given uncoitain
founds, his Majesty has left to him
the recourse of obtaining the advice
of the Privy Council of Stale. If
the Pi ivy Council is in accord with
what wc mo assuied is the well
understood, unpurcliasablc sentiment
of the country, it will advise that
the authors of the present chaotic
condition of affairs be removed fiom

abused. If, on the other hand, the

approval to the present regime and

with constitutional legislation, then

JUDICIAL MUDDLE AT WAILUKU.
Editou Bru.KTix: The police
justice of Wailuku, Aholo, had him
self elected a member of the Assembly
from Lahaina and had a parly made
deputy for him during his absence.
That parly had himself been candi
date for election at Wailuku, and
during the canvass told the people
that he was to be judge and they
had better vole for him, as their
acquittal or conviction on any
charge against them, which came
before him, lay with him. Aholo
received the appointment of assessor
for Wailuku and witli others who
received similar appointments was
unable to fulfil his duties, as he could
not bo spared from the Legislature.
His deputy received the appointment
of assessor for Kohala and of course
could not fulfil his duties according
to law. Now the deputy has lied to
Kohala to endeavor to catch up on
his work and the district is without
a police justice. Paities charged
with crimes or misdemeanors must
lie in jail until one of the justices
returns. A live governor at this
crisis would get out a bench warrant
for one of them and return him to
his pol. Maui.
A COMMON MERIDIAN.
Kiiitou Bi'lixtin: Our Govern
ment is about lo send a pair of com
missioners to Washington to assist
at the congress to decide on a com
mon meridian. The parties selected
by the powers that be for the com
mission aic Prof. W. P. Alexander
and Hon. L. Aholo. II is admitted
that it is essential that wo as a nation
should take part in whatever is for
the advancement of science, or com
merce, or civilization. Also wc can
congratulate ourselves that wc have
in our midsl one so capable from his
learning as Prof. Alexander. He is
a gentleman who will do us honor
there and one whom the selected
savants of the woild will be pleased
to meet. But why in the name of
common sense should Aholo be
tacked on lo his coat tail is more
than those of us who know the man
can discern. Aholo should know
what a mciidian is, although so far
in life his courio has deviated far
from straight. If wc should only
judge him by his conduct in the late
Lcgislatuic wc cannot help but admit
that he knows what ciookcd is. lie
was sent by the people to lcprescnt
them, but he succeeded in represent
ing Aholo to good effect, as those
who wanted nefarious bills passed
know well. In every position he has
occupied in life thus far ho has
proved a failure, except that of a
tool of a designing Ministry. At
school he was one of tho most pro
mising pupils of his class, and his
teachers looked forward to his mak
ing his maik in tho world. They
have lived to sec their mistake, how
over, except as far ns a crooked,
indelible maik is concerned. That
ho has nbility docs not need to bo
stated, but when natural qualifica
tions arc only used for mcretiieious
nud wrong purposes it is an unfortu
nato waste of talents. As clerk
under Governor Nahaolclua, who
was a faithful guardian of the public
funds, ho was compelled to be accu
rate in his accounts. Under the new
logime, however, where looseness
ima chainelerixcd tinul of the depart
ments, his Inclination hud theit
bout. II is very unpalatable lo the
general public that a man of his
stamp should be sent to icpresont
the Hawaiian people and at the
public expense. If (hone for whose
interests he w oiked during the late
Legislature choose lo make up a
purse and pay his junkclting ex
penses, well and good, but let it not
be said that he lcpiesents tho people
of Hie Hawaiian Islands.

HOW A DONKEY VAS CONCERNED IN A
A singular lawsuit has just been
commenced in Mariposa County.
Mr. Black is a well to do resident of
Bull Creek, in that County, and is
the owner of a heid of fine cattle.
Lately a grizzly bear had been mak
ing nightly forays on his corral, kill
ing and carrying off his calves. A
short time since lie published an ad
vertisement offering $f)0 reward to
any person who would kill the bear.'
William Opie, also a citizen of Bull
Creek, is the possessor of a jackass.
One night, afoitniglitsince, the jack
ass broke down a poilion of Mr.
Black's Corral fence and began to
eat hay with the cattle. While he
was thus engaged the grizzly made
a descent on tlio corral, and by
mistake seized him. A desperate
combat ensued between the donkey
and the bear. They fought all over
Iho corral, but finally the jackass
kicked and chewed the grizzly to
death. Next morning tho badly lac
erated donkey was found quietly eat
ing Mr. Black's hay, while his grim
antagonist lay nearby, dead. When
Mr. Opio came to get his animal he
made a demand upon Mr. Black for
.")0 reward he had offered for kill
ing the bear. Mr. Black declined
to pay until the power of attorney
could bo produced from the donkey,
and to Mr. Opie's astonishment pres
ented him with a bill for S23, the
estimated damage done to the corral.
Mr. Opie immideately sued Mr.
Black, setting foith in his complaint
the facts of the offering of the re
ward, tho killing of the bear, and
the further fact that tho jackass is his
lawful property, and therefore prays
judgment in his favor for 8i() and
costs of suit. Black in his answer
admits the allegations of tlio com
plaint but avers that tho reward was
olfered to any person killing the
bear ; that the jackass is not a person
within the meaning of the statuto,
and that if ho were Mr. Opio is not his
legal guardian, and in default of a
power of attorney or any assignment
is not entitled to sue for recovery of
his claim. Ho further alleges that
Mr. Opie, owning tho jackass, is re
sponsible for tho damage done to his
corral. Wheicforc he prays judg-
mi-ill for $M nud his rusts in the
