MR. ALLEN'S REMOVAL.
The Advertiser, the only English
paper supporting the (.ovcruuicut,
joins in the expression of regret at
Mr. Alien's retirement, and acknow
ledge that his adiieience to prill
s' CtpiC Wie, IIIU IC11SOI1 III! WUS USKCU
to abandon the important post which
lie lias held so long." This is a
creditable display of independence
on tlio pait of our contemporary,
which should go far in showing the
fiovcrnmcnl that its crime against
the public is also a fatal blunder to
itself. The only apology offered by
the Advertiser is in these words,
"Wc alt know how, all over the
world, political heads are rut off for
political reasons," and nothing could
' be more paltry. Moreover, the
statement is inaccurate Hint the itilc
governing the tenure of public ser
vice, the wot hi over is, "To tlio vic
tors belong the spoil-." It does
obtain to nn extreme degiee in the
United States, making, "more than
any other surviving abuse of its
system of government, that country
ridiculous in the eyes of the world.
It is not the adoption of any such
rule, however, that has led to Mr.
n, Allen's removal, or it should have
;t t" taken place when the present Minis
try took olllcc. Mr. Allen's ad
herence to principle, as the Adver
tiser admits, was his sole fault, and
it appears it is a fatal one in the
eyes of our present rulcr.s. With no
one to say a woid in jtislillcation of
the act, the Ministry ought, in all
decency, to retr.ice the step and
restore, harmonious relations with
,.jlie community so far as can be done
by the reinstatement of Mr. Allen.
Since the above was in type, wc arc

jJn vain the press urges the adop
tion of a stricter sanitary adminis
tration. To no effect is the necessity
if a sowetago system, or a substitute
therefor, urged upon the Hoard of
Health. The fact is Honolulu is too
lig to lie ptoperly managed in any
i spect as a mere district under the
general uiuiiiiiismiiioii u niu avtug-
kclom's affairs. As there is no hell),

evident. Notwithstanding that no
'' nVovftion has been mado by the
Legislature for any radical improve
ment in sanitary matters, the
Hoard of Health could effect great
things nt compaialivcly small ex
pense to the country if it only shook
off its apparent indifference and
applied itself in earnest to the dis
charge of its functions. It does not
require any extraordinary outlay of
money to scenic the inline requisite
of having the city cleansed. In cities
under municipal government house
holdcis are compelled to keep their
ptcmiscs in cleanly condition, the
authorities giving notice through the
police force and the pre??, at certain
seasons, that all icfuse and rubbish
must lie icmoved at a eeitain date.
When the visitation of epidemic dis
ease is anticipated or feared, tlio
cleansing process is prescribed
regardless of the season. Now, the
police of Honolulu have ample lime
to serve notice at every door in
town, and the pros would give
general notice for a small outlay,
for a thorough cleansing of private
premises, with as much public assis
tance as possible. Then, surely
theic are means enough at the dis
posal of the Hoard, including prison
labor, to clean up the streets, lanes
and public ground generally. As
to the preservation of wholesome
conditions, wo have heard doubts
raised of the elllcacy of any sewer
age system that could at present be
afforded for Honolulu. If sewers
are not practicable, or would not be
clllcient, then it is the duty of the
Hoard to seek other methods of get
ting rid of the city's foulness. There
arc other methods, set forth in
standard treatises that can be easily
obtained, which, in conjunction with
a system of icavengiug at public
expense and regular police inspec
tion, w'ould at least work a vast im
provement in the sanitary condition
of Honolulu. With ships coming
here from all parts of the world,
and our nearest neighbor being in
some, fear of a visitation from
cholera, the lassitude of the Hoard
of Health is nothing less than crimi
nal. We have a good deal of faith
in the power of well-directed and
concentrated public opinion, and
belief in the existence, of a very
intelligent public opinion in Hono
lulu. There was neve a more im
portant call for an assertion of pub
lic opinion than the present univer
sally acknowledged necessity for

We are obliged to Mr. Dole for
his correct exposition of the Home
stead Law. It will be remembered
that wc made the statement he cor
rects under reservation, as we had
not the Act before us when writing.
The Homestead Act wc regard as
one of the most .statesmanlike meas
ures of the session. It was designed
for the lasting good of the country,
thus being in infinitely favorable con
trast to many measures introduced
to subserve partisan ends.
A correspondent introduces to
public attention the important ques
tion of the birds best suited to tills
country. It is a matter requiring
earo and knowledge in dealing with.
Some birds otherwise desirable are
so pugnacious that they drive away
some of man's picasantcst feathered
friends. Of such are English spar
rows, whose unmelodious twittering
is a poor substitute for the delight
ful warbling of the songsters they
put to flight. There should be no
dilllcully on the part of naturalists
in making a selection of birds that
would make Hawaiian air sweeter
with their voices and gayer with
their plumage, that would help the
tiller of the soil by feeding upon his
enemies and add to the wealth of
the nation by furnishing food for
all and adornment for Hie milliner's

We do not hold ourselves responsible
for the opinions expressed by our eor-te-pondciits.
KniTOK Hui.umx : There is a way
open to the Government to gain a
little popularity, when they get money
enough to go on with, in the extirpa
tion of some birds already here and
the replacement of them by others
more useful to the country. Rico
birds form one class that ought to be
extirpated as soon as possible. The
loss to the country from this one
source is exceedingly large almost
incalculable. No doubt, other un
desirable birds could be mentioned.
Then wc want more birds here which
will cat insects on the wing. Such,
for instance, as would help to extir
pate the cane-borer when in the moth
state. Many birds valuable, for their
food or their plumage, too, could
be acclimatized bete and would in
course of time add another source
from which to raise wealth for the
inhabitants and thus, indirectly,
revenue for the Government. Some
attention, also, might be paid to tlio
introduction of animals valuable for
their llcsh or skin. As for trees and
shrubs the Government have already
attended to that and, under the able
management of Mr. Jaeger, arc
carrying on good wotk which will
ultimately be of the greatest benefit
to our island home.
F.miois Ht'i.r.urtx: Your cones
pondent. "Victoria," gives an ex
ample of "Government by Hoaids"
extant in a Hritish colony, anil you
cndoi.se it as wortlry of imitation in
this country. I think, that most
people wlio possess experimental
knowledge of the boatd system of
government prevalent in Great Hri
lain and many of her colonies, arc
ready and willing to acknowledge its
superiority. It not only effects divi
sion of duly and responsibility, but
it conduces to cfllcieney. It is
hailed with satisfaction by the peo
ple, because it gives them a more
direct voice and a more potent influ
ence in public affairs. Hut an
attempt to engraft the system, in its
entirety, on this country 1 should
consider a mistake. That a portion
thereof could be adopted with advan
tage to our Government and for the
benefit of the country, 1 have no
doubt. Why I should consider the
adoption of Hie entire system u mis
take is not because. I believe it to
be unsuited to the country, but that
the country is unsuited to it. For
instance, to find capable and patrio
tic men willing to serve on local road
boards, in some of Hie country dis
tricts, would be no easy task. Hut
so much of tho board system as is
undoubtedly practicable should bo
adopted, in tltc interest of Hie Gov
ernment and the governed. At pre
sent wc have three Hoards Immi
gration, Health and Education
which are supposed to lighten Hie
work and the responsibility of tlio
general Government; but a super
ficial examination of their composi
tion shows their existence to be
little short of a stupid farce. Those
Hoards arc all partly made up of
Cabinet Ministers. Why could they
not be composed of intelligent and
capable men not holding Ministerial
positions; no one man being a
member of more than one Hoard?
If the Hoards must bo composed of
Ministers, why not Ministers per
form Uio work pertaining thereto, in
their Ministerial capacity, without
the cumbrous intervention of
Hoaids? I hcIicvu-Hinvc always
believed and believe any man who
gives the matter a little thought
believes tho same, that each of
these Hoards should bo composed of
nn independent set of men. Hy
this I mean, not only that tho men
should not be in Cabinet offices, but
that each Hoard should consist of
an entirely different set of men
from each of the other Boards.
This arrangement would add
strength and cfllcieney lothe Govern
ment, and the sooner it is effected
the belter for the various depart
ments and for the country. More
over, I am of opinion tlint if those
who have the power to make the
suggested change calmly consider
the matter, they must admit the
correctness of my conclusion.
THE HOMESTEAD LAW.
Eiiitou Hui.i.r.Tix: In your nt ti
de on the Homestead Law, in the
Bi'i.lktix some days ago, I noticed
some misstatements which I should
like to correct.
The law is drafted, as you sug
gest, in such a way as to prevent
speculation so far as possible, but
tlio homesteads arc not inalienable
by the proprietors after they have
obtained a complete title. The main
features of the law arc these: The
accepted applicant goes into posses
sion of his homestead under a written
agiccmcnt with the Minister of In
terior, by which he haa a right of
possession for five years without
taxes and at Hie end of that time is
entitled to a royal patent, in con
sideration of which he covenants to
build u dwelling house on the land
within the first yeni, to fence it
within tho first two years, to live on
tho land from the time of the erec
tion of the dwelling house till the
expiration of the five years, to pay
the price, of the land within the five
ycais or in lieu thereof to give a
mortgage therefor or for any unpaid
balance at the end of the five years,
to pay interest upon the price of the
land semi-nununlly at the rate of ten
per cent, per annum, and thai he
will not dining the five years convey
his interest in the premises to third
patties. In case of the death of
the applicant during the five years,
Ins rights under this agreement
descend to his heirs at law.
Therefore, it will be seen that
there is no restriction of alienation
after the applicant lias performed
the conditions and lias obtained ids
title, but that for five years from
the beginning of ids right of pos
session Ids intcrcslis inalienable,
and this seemed necessary in order
to confine the advantages of the law
to those only who, in good faith,
desire to acquire homes of their
own. S. H. Doi.r..
