EDUCATING THE PEOPLE.
It is often said that the politics of
tliisi Kingdom are exceptionally lintd
to lie dealt with, on account of con
stitutional tot ins not having the
same signification as in. other coun
tries possessing popular institutions.
Thai is true, and it only make tlte
necessity greater for having what
ever of self-government may have
been left the people made the very
best possible use of. Nothing is a
more positive conclusion, apparently,
in the minds of intelligent students
of the situation than thai tdo coun
try stands in almost imminent need
of constitutional, us well as admin
istrative reform. The last session
of the Legislature showed the bal
ance of power to be on the side of
the privileged estates of the realm,
and the popular patty of the Assem
bly overwhelmed hopelessly save for
assistance from tiiat component part
of the body not icsponsible to the
people. The constitution as it
stands lias a constant tendency to
increasing absolutism in government
as time rolls on. Only a very small
propoition of the function of gov
ernment now inhere in tlio represen
tatives of the people's choice, and
the changes to be wrought by time
'and the kingly authoiity 111 the two
powerful estates of the realm not
responsible to the people the Privy
Council and the House of Nobles
can only further concentrate power
in the hands of the sovereign. It
is because we have a belief that a
limited, independent monarchy
would be the best system for these
Islands for many years to come, that
wo deprecate any tendency toward
absolutism, as calamitous to the pros
pects of such a system. People
'bom to freedom would not endure
the unadulterated article of abso
lute rule for a day, and in putting
it out of the way they might also
' finally dispose of ninny things in
our present sy&tcm wliicii aro of
:. . .
great advantage. This is not writ-
,ten because there is any reason lo
suspect that designs exist in any
quarter for the curtailment of poim-
lar liberties, but heeause the incvita-
hie trend of matters, under the
workings of present institutions, is
toward an increase of pi ivileged
power and a deeiense of popular
power. If this state of thing is lo
be'ehanged ; if it is desirable that a
larger nieasuie of self-government

. rcsttltsIs -that wny which Is being
followed--a few newspapers (lcsultoil
ly shouting at the liccls of nsctof men
who feel .they arc safo in the scats
of power independently of all the
forces represented by those news
papers. Tlio most Hint may be ex
pected of Mich a siege is Unit persons
already dissatisfied with the situa
tion will become somewhat more so,
to which must be offset the danger
of dosing many who do not need
medicine to the extent of disgusting
them against what is for the common
good. The knowledge, that there is
only an apology for constitutional
government in existence is not stilll
cicnt to be made known, liven the
sine ccnt of the present Ministry
being over-thrown in the near futuic
would not be .satisfying, as it would
give 110 assurance that a better re
gime would succeed, or that a belter
Ministry would have any secure
tenure of power. There must be
organization of all the forces on the
side of organic and administintivc
tcforin, or affairs must drift on to
chaos involving every class and every
interest. Unless those classes of
the people who now take a meiely
partisan or feudal interest in politics
ate instructed in the importance of
constitutional liberty, and shown
that government in this age must be
for the benefit of the 1 tiled rather
than of the rulcis, matters must be
left to the hideous remedy of allow
ing the picscnt system to lot away
before the healthy elements of the
bod politic asscit themselves. To
educate those classes in the direction
mentioned, more than private pro
pagr.ndism and desultory agitation is
requisite. Systematic instruction of
the Hawaiian electorate by the press
and on the platform must be can led
on unremittingly from one session of
the Legislature to another, and from
elect inn to election. This would re
quire money as well as men. and
neither could be obtained without
oiganization. There must be a
cleat ly-ilcllncd policy of reform
mound which the people would be
called to rally, and by which they
would be asked to stand until it
Putting all the eggs in one basket
is very much the nilc heie. The
egg of capital arc laid in sugar.
The members of Government put
their confidence in the influences
that gave them their pl.iccs, and will
do anything to conserve those in
fluences. The Opposition leaves all
its hopes to the incubation of chance.
The letter of "Work" urge- that
the large numbers of Chinese kept in
idleness by their secret societies
should be compelled (o go to work.
In addition to the Vagrant Act. un
der which our correspondent advises
that pressure should be brought for
that purpose, there was an Act
passed at the last session especially
for the suppression of those secret
societies. The Attorney-General
was very earnest in securing its pas
sage, and now that he has had a
holiday abroad it is to bo hoped lie
will take an active interest in the
great question discussed and in a
measure decided during his absence.
Hy enforcing Ids Act he will at once
give the planters nearly as many
Chinese as they said would sullice to
bear wages down to a figure profita
ble to them, and rid the country of
institutions that it cannot afford to
give shelter to for a day.
THE LABOR PROBLEM.
Knnon Bui.i.i:tin : Of late a great
deal lias been naid and printed about
i ........ . ,
me planters- urgent need oi more i
i nnd cheaper labor. All intelligent
' people, whether foteigncrs or natives,
' recognize how dependent the country
is on the planting interest. At one
time our dcK!iidcncc was on the j
whaling fleet: at present wc lean
' upon sugar. No doubt, it was a
' great mistake to have placed all our j
- eggs in one basket ; for we were not
compelled to do .so. The country,
I as has been pointed out a thousand
, times, is capable of producing many
j tilings besides mignr, Hint could be.
profitably cultivated for export. Hut
sugar promised the larcest returns
1 lated enterprise. What is the result?
The bulk of our capital is invested in
.sugar plantations ; costly machinery
lias been erected all over tho islands ;
land has been purchased or rented tit
fabulously high prices, and put under
cultivation at b!g expense; heavy
debts have been incurred nnd still
remain. This Is our present condi
tion, and to add to our trouble the
price of sugar Is unprofltably low,
and labor for carrying on operations
difficult to pioemc. Kvcry man. in
the country who has a clear compre
hension of the situation must sym
pathize with the planter, especially
considering the fact that almost
every white mechanic and business
man in the community is directly or
indirectly dependent on the planter.
All classes who give the matter a
moment's thought wisii to fcc the
plantations thrive and extend and
the pliuitcis prosper. But 1 do not
think the same people are so unani
mous In support of the planters'
plan, declared in their recent meet
ing, for procuring cheap labor;
namely, a fresh influx of Chinese.
Indeed, people speak very plainly
against it, and many declared oppo
sitionists do not hesitate to commend
the Government's action in the
matter as wise and good. No one
can truthfully say that the Govern
ment's correspondence with the
planters indicates a spirit of antago
nism. Quite the contrary, it evinces
a disposition to be considerate and
helpful, whilst at the same time
declining, for reasons shown, to
remove existing restrictions from
Chinese immigration, Believing that
the Government recognize the im
portance to the country of the plant
ing intcicst, that they are sensible of
the planters' need of more and
cheaper labor, and believing also
that they ate sincerely desirous of
tendering what assistance they can
to the planters, consistent with due
consideration of the general good, 1
would suggest a measure which I am
convinced would inatctially aid the
planters in getting labor and at the
same time lie a blessing to the coun
try at large. It is this, to adopt
means to compel the thousands of
idler.-, now in the country to go to
woik. I believe thcie is a Vagrant
Act among our statutes. Why not
put it into force? It may be difficult
to do so with the Chinese. Ncvcithe
lcss, it can be done if the police
understand their business. ' To show
the necessity for its enforcement,
intelligent Chinamen say there arc
more than two thousand of their
countrymen unemployed here in Ho
nolulu, the majority of whom live at
the expense of the secret societies.
These societies should be broken up :
they aie the loot of the evil. In
Sarawak, the legion ruled by Sir
Rajah Brooke, to be a member of a
Chinese Seciet Society is punishable
by death. People who know what
these societies mean say that until
strong measures are adopted for
their suppression here, we aie bound
to be infested by a set of criminal
vagrants. These societies, accord
ing to Chinamen themselves, protect
wrong-doers, and maintain men in
idleness to keep up the price of
wages. The Government would be
doing a national good to tako vigor
ous action in this mattci.
