A DISCOURAGING FEATURE.
One of the most discouraging
features of the present political situa
tion in this Kingdom is the hopeless
view encountered on every hand,
Regarding the feasibility of concerted
policy and action on the part of
those who profess to be in favor of
good government. A certain scc-
,?tion we do not know bow large
: ? .
openly opposes a combination oi the
ftorces of reform, upon the around
that there arc no men in the country
"fitted by experience and knowledge
of statesmanship to lead such a com
bination. This position is, we think
with some justice, delincd by others
to mean that those holding it aie
aware that those whom they would
like to be leaders are not legarded
by the rest of the community as coin-
potent to lead. Tlioy do not want .
organization, which would lesuit in
tho views of the majority pievailing
over those of their faction. It would
siut them better to let affairs drift
along, they helping in the process
simply by making the piescnt Minis
try as unpopular as llicy can. Their
ultimate hope is apparently that from
among those most industrious in
bringing the piescnt Ministry into
disrepute the successoi- of the latter
would be chosen when a change
was brought about. Wo submit it
to the whole country if there is any
hope of better government at the
hands of any -el of men who seek
the reins mainly for the sake of the
advantages of power, or who seek
power by the back-door of adventi
tious circumstances or by means of
secret intrigue. However people
may regard our words now, the time
will come when all will see that good
government is impossible in the hands
'of men who hold their position- in
dependently of the eoulide.nco and
good-will of a majority of right
minded citizens. If our constitution
is not adapted to truly responsible
government, then there is need for
organization to have Iho constitution
altered. Let us begin at tho bottom.
SICK OF POLITICS.
.'A Sick Header," whose lottc? j
appeared yesterday, must be mis- '
taken if he thinks there arc many in
the community who look upon cur
rent political discussion a- he docs.
When you cannot go into any coin
pah' in Honolulu without having
politics immediately thrust upon you,
alio people can hardly bo sick of the
subject. As to the iteration of press
comments upon the political situa
tion ; that is wherein the great power
of" tho. pi ess lies.
burning wonts may produce an
intense effect upon his audience,
but, unless repealed again and ngnln i
from o cry platform in Ihc country, '
their influence passe away like the
early (lew of morning. If the news-j
papers display loo little variety in I
their style of haintncriim; at sub- i
jeet, tliat is a literary fault that may '
make people sick of a matter of in- !
Unite importance to them. Faithful j
preachers have been pitching into '
' tho world, the devil and the llcsh"
for eighteen hundred years, but no
one is sielc of the performance except
persons whose interests arc bound
up with those primary sources of
I evil. In an addicts delivered before
I an American Pioss Association a few
years ago, we think it was George
I William Cm tis. of Aejyw'w Weekly.
who said that the function of the
1 press was to "effect tilings." Of
course the supposition is that it is
right tilings which arc to be effected,
as it was the legitimate mission of
' the press which was being consider-
' cd. It is true that there is a host of
tiling to be effected, outside of
, politic; iii the narrower souse of
I offensive and defensive operations
' with regard to the flovcrninent, but
i we do not know that those other
thimrs arc neglected bv the live press
of the time. From a business point
of view politics should figure largely
in the press that courts public sup
port, for the largest class of its con
stituents take a deep interest in
politics. To come home, the ques
tion K, What things require to be
effected in the polities of this King
dom for the good of the inhabitants
of it? The answer must be formed
by every conscientious mind accord
ing to the state of affairs presented
to it. If the country i- being
governed well, those so governing it
should be supported. If the country
is- bcni" governed ill. those so ov-
crning it should be opposed. No
niattci how well the country may be
governed as a rule, false steps and
wrong couises should be faithfully
pointed out. NTo matter how ill the
country may be governed a a rule.
good conduct in any particular
should be honestly acknowledged
and commended. Individual judg
ment must be exercised to decide
whether or not a Government has
gone so far in wrong-doing and in
disrcgaid for the intcicsts of t lie
country as to have irredeemably lost
the confidence of the people. We
must act in t he living present, and
the allegation that past managers of
public affairs have been as bad as
present ones, is a side issue until tho
alleged unfaithful stewards of the
past try to secure the reins of power
again, and then their record is a lit
subject of discussion. One other
point that is often raised, and we arc
done. .Measures and not men"
should be discussed. True, but
public men cannot lie dissociated
from their measures, for by their
measures alone can they be judged.
Therefore, any criticism of public
men, upon the gi omuls of their olll
eial conduct and actions, may be too
violent in degree or ill-informed in
its promises, but it is no infringe
ment of the maxim quoted. I'pon
Mich lines as those above drawn, wc
believe that the political battle- of
the country -hould be fought out
with unflagging persistence. Many
readeis of newspapers may lie sick
of politic-, but many more, wc
believe, are sick of bad government.
Tlieie is, at all events, a great deal
of matter for non-political readers
even in the newspapers of Honolulu.
Honolulu's progress is undoubtedly
retarded more by lack of co-operation
among capitalists than by any
want of private enterprise. Two
telephone companies, and no street
railway, two ice factories, and no
gas works.: that is the stupid state
of things. It is very doubtful, too,
if cither telephones or ice will be any
cheaper a year hence for the compe
tition, and perhaps no one will be
any i ichor. Heinembei, gentlemen,
the fable of the bundle of slicks.
Singly the sticks could be -napped
by a child, but bound together they
dolled tho Htrengtli of a giant. Mo
nopolies are not good where there is
room for competition, but they have
often maintained good services that
would otherwise have been wanting.
It is rumored that Mr. l'lowerdow,
who wanted to build a street railway
hero some time ago but was prevented
by .some ilog-in-tlie-jnangcr business,
is coining back by an early steamer,
' . . . - .1 I
in which case it Is natural to expect
Hint something will bo Mono nutter
the clinrter granted to air. W. It.
Austin. There can bo hardly any
doubt that a judiciously-managed
street railway would pay from the
word " go," and there is no question
of the invaluable convenience it
would be. At least a thousand
dollar is spent in town every day
for carriage biro, and the cars would
be used by many hundreds to whom
a carriage rido is now a rare luxury.
The carriages would not be imme
diately run off the track, although
probably their number would gradu
ally diminish until Ihcic would be
about enough left for the call that
will always remain for them.

AN AMUSING SCENE.
In the Supreme Court yesterday,
Tain Look, a Chinaman, was charg
ed with larceny. At tho time of
Horn's tire. Mr. Anthony Mullcr, a
knight of the needle, lost a sewing
machine, which was subsequently
found in the possession of the pris
oner. The case wa- tried in the
Police Court before .fudge llickcr
ton, and the prisoner was found
guilty and committed to the
Supreme Court. At -that time the
evidence given by Mr. Mullcr was
so amusing Hint those present in
the Police Court were a long time
before they recovered from its side
splitting effects. In Court yester
day when Anthony was put on tho
stand the fun wa- resumed. When
Mr. Russell asked him if the machine
(which was in Court) was his and
how he knew it, Anthony said ex
citedly and Willi emphasis: I knew
dat vas mine marchine, I vould tell
it out uf a dousand marchines. I
vill bet mine head against a live cent
piece dat dis marchine isl mine.
Mr. Kusscll asked him again whether
he was sine it was the same machine
lie lost. He replied, Yaas, sir, J am
sure it ist, I bought it your years
ago, and paid SIT) for it in cash, mid
if it isn't mine, I vill give it you. It
slecpcd vitii me, vas my daily com
panion, it hail loosed one nut, and I
know it vas stcalcd from me. Mr.
Russell in cross-exauiiualion got
Anthony quite excited over the puz
zling questions lie asked. It was a
bard matter for the jury, indeed for
anyone present, to avoid laughing
outright, at the inimitable way in
which Anthony stood up on behalf
of his beloved machine. The
prisoner was found guilty by the
jury, and in a few days Anthony
will be in possession of his compan
ion the machine.
