MR. ALLEN'S RESIGNATION.
Rusincss circles were perturbed
this morning by the rumor current
yesterday evening, that the lion.
W. F. Allen had been removed from
the olllee of Collector-Genera! of
the Kingdom, being continued in
5 part by the olllcial notice of his
resignation. All sorts of rumors
are alloat as to the occasion of Mr.
Allen's retirement, from the olllee
that he has adorned for over twenty
years with eminent integrity and
ability. The explanation that seems
to have most evidence at back ii
that Mr. Allen gave mortal offence
to the Cabinet by his independent
discharge of duty in an instance
where an evasion of duty would
have aved a degree of humiliation
to one of the prominent legisla
tive supporters of the Cabinet.
There is no question, at any late,
that .Mr. Allen was forced to resign,
and the feeling of indignation among
business men is all but, if not alto
gether universal that such a true and
tried veteran at the head of the
most impoi taut branch of the civil
service should be so Miininarily dis
missed. This action adds another
count to the long hill of indictment
against the present Ministry, and one,
too, of so serious a nature that it is
too long to wail for the regular day
of account to pour out the vials of
popular wrath upon the men who
have thus subordinated the leading
public interests to their political
spite. Already we understand that
many business men have waited
upon the Government with indig-
'& nant protests against the removal of
.Mr. Allen, but a more united and
open expression of opinion is in
order. Mr. Allen's sticccs."or is not
'announced, and never will be if the
Government waits to Unci his equal
Umong the ranks of its supporters.
A WOULD-BE CRITIC.
It does not follow that because a
musical amateur has a taste for
music, he is competent to exercise
the functions of a musical eritie,
f-, .Most people -ccm to forget that
musical criticism i a profession lo
itself. The amateur musician is a
jjiecesMty, but the amateur musical
"critic is decidedly :i siiperiliiity.
.He. thinks that it i one of the casi-
ungs in the world to write
il criticism. One of these
.self-constituted Judges of music
ami musical compositions js at pre-
"sent attached to the stall' of ilio Ad-
rerhser. uts latest production is in
yesterday's Issue and is headed
" Requiems." He says "Aloha Oc"
li a very pretty air, nud touching,
bill lie objects to it "because it seems
to be the only melody that anybody
knows here." What ever possesses
a man lo take up his pen to display
such folly! We could fill the paper
with different airs which aie well
known in this eommiinity. and a
large number of them of a classical
nature, loo. Then again, to call
"Aloha Oe" a dirge I out of place.
As we understand a dirge, it is a
song or tune to express grief and
mourning. "Aloha Oe" does cer
tainly not till the bill as a dirge.
Now comes the most laughable part
of hi- article, when he says that
our national anthem. " 'Hawaii
l'onoi.' i 'God Save the Queen'
turned upside down, with some
alterations." This is rich, lo think
Hint we have been listening all these
years to friend Merger's most appro
priate music, and thai it has been
played in many other countries, yet
left to till" amateur critic at this late
hour to inform us of such astound
ing ncus. It shocks our feelings,
and the only remedy is to have a
brand new national anthem written
at once. The article winds up by
saying, "if the steamers have lo be
fitted out with musical send-offs, at
least, they fhould not be requiems."
Certainly not, and such has never
been the case. Trot out your
dictionary, Mr. Critic, and look for
the meaning of the word requiem.
It certainly is the first time we have
.ever heard of steamers having to be
lilted out with musical send-offs.
Let'tis have it explained.
THE LABOR PROBLEM.
The Adcertiser anticipates a dry
ing up of the sources of Portuguese
immigration, and suggests a trial of
Italians, who have for some time
been largely employed as navvies,
freight handlers, etc., in the United
States and Canada. We have read
of the Italian children in New York
giving great promise of growing up
good and intelligent citizens by
their quickness to learn and Insta
bility in the -chools. At present,
however, we .-.houlil judge that
Italian labor would be open to the
same objection here as Portuguese
epensiveuess. The Italian is no
le-s prolific than any of the
Latin races, and, as has been
stated in the Legislature and
remarked to us bv a Icadintr
planters' agent last evening, what is
wanted at this juncture is not popu
lation but cheap labor. This neces
sity of the hour the country anxious
ly looks lo l he Japanese immigration,
provided for, to meet. At the same
time we believe it would be for the
lasting benefit of the Kingdom if the
two objects of rcpopulation and labor
supply could be made identical.
They could only be by the Govern
ment having enough territory at
disposal to offer to the various
thrifty and civilized races of the world
independent homesteads. Then the
immigrant of any such race could
give his labor to the planters while
he earned enough to pay tlic small
price asked for a homestead. Then,
when the inducement to such innni
giation was exhausted, there would
be a backbone of civilized yeomanry
to the nation, the chances would be
removed for .Mongolian possession
of the land, and the coolies would
only conic to the extent of the
'demand on the plantations. In the
meantime every means should be
employed to induce the Hawaiian
race to occupy and develop its native
soil, so as to maintain its rightfully
prominent position in the Kingdom.
Not a bad suggestion is made by
"Citizen," to have occasional com
petitions betwech the fire, companies.
Ucsidcs its certain effect of ensuring
greater efficiency in the Ilrigadc, it
would furnish a fresh antidote to
our insular diiluess.
A contemporary has a plea for
the hackincn, who, it considers, are
treated hardly by being mulcted in
fines for smalt transgressions of the
regulations. There are many of the
hackmen who, in gentlemanly be
havior, would adorn more preten
tious callings. On the other hand,
there are hackmen who are a dis
grace to the city, audi, for instance,
as the drunken ruffian who last night
on King street pursued two ladies
with his vehicle for some distance,
sometimes driving on to the sidc
wnlk and forcing them off. The

A correspondent is very much
exercised over the game law passed
at the recent session. If it is, as he
seems to think, simply a piece of
class legislation, the warning note is
sounded none too soon, and the
country should have no more of
such creation of class privilege.
Game laws arc not, however, essen
tially evil, but often necessary lo
prevent the extermination of useful
animals. If it were not for such
laws the deer, partridge and salmon,
for instance, would long since have
been extinct in many parts of North
America where they, contrariwise,
have been preserved as n remnant to
perpetuate each their valuable spe
cies. When we have the Session
Laws before us, however, we shall
keep this subject in mind and ex

THE CAME ACT.
Koiroit Hi'i.t.KTix : As an up
holder of the equal rights of every
citizen, 1 would like lo ask your
opinion on the Ant passed at the late
session of the Legislature to define
the ownership of wild fowl. It
seems to me that it is simply the
thin end of the wedge, inserted to
facilitate the introduction of classes,
which in countries of older civiliza
tion have proved endless sources of
dissension, feud and revolution.
This law is simply, in my opinion,
the precursor of game laws similar
to those which, in Great Britain and
Ireland, have proved such fruitful
sources of oppression to the tenant
farmer, the laborer, and the poor in
general. Other countries in Europe,
too, have suffered from similar
causes. Why introduce such laws
Kimoit Hui.t.r.riN' : There have
been some, strictures on our Fire
Department lately in various news
papers, which do not seem to be
wholly undeserved and I would
suggest a remedy for them which, I
think, will meet with general favor,
if closely examined into. In Austra
lia, every city, and even largo vil
lage, has its local Fire Ilrigadc.
Once a year a picked team from
each meets at some previously
selected town and competes publicly
for prizes given for excellence in the
various departments of llrc-cxtin-guishing
and life-saving as far as
known to the Associations. Great
interest in taken in these competi
tions, not only by the members of the
dilfcrcnt companies but by the Gov
ernment and the public in general.
Valuable prizes arc offered and, on
the days of the competition, the
whole town in which it takes place
puts on an aspect of holiday-making.
Torch-light processions take place
in the evenings, each company taking
part, headed by a band selected from
its own members. It seems to me,
that, although the field for competi
tion is small here, we could rouse a
much greater enthusiasm than exists
even at present in the breasts of the
different companies, and that not
only company competition might be
indulged in, but also'individual com
petition in the different branches,
and that for some events more teams
than one might be selected from
each company. What do our Fire
Laddies and the public say to it?
