IS IT SUPERSTITION ?
It is easy to talk, but those who
tall; easiest do not always tall; best.
Mr. .Kenyon, in his letter published
yesterday, quoted the late Prince
onsort of England a,s holding that
parliamentary institutions were on
their trial; Mr. Carlyle, the Scotch
philosopher, as setting forth that
what ' he called " government by
palaver" was a ridiculous spectacle,
and Mr. Ileibcrt Spencer, the
scientist, as repiesentiiig the super
"slilioiriil" the time to be the " divinn
right of parliaments. It would bo
1'? folly to nttempt to detract from the
weight nf opinions coming from Mich
eminent men in their respective
".spheres. On the other hand it would
bo equally foolish to accept whatever
they have chosen to say, especially
in matters more or lens out of tho
, ' lines in which they have chiefly (lis
4 tingnished themselves, as infallible
, A wisdom.
No ono will sny that parliamentary
m institutions, even in tho most pfr-
feet form la which they exist, do not
come very short of being fully satis
factory. Their faults will, however,
we aro pretty sure, if looked into,
be found to be the icsult3 of
departures from tho piinqiples of .
kind of government Is simply ti
gathering of the people iu ilelibeia-
tivc assembly to miuiage their affairs.
As it would bo impossible to act nil

truth, in our opinion. Parliamentary
institutions in his day and country,
to look at bis opinion iu another light,
Wcre so adulterated with the losiduc
of other kinds of government that it
was premature to pass judgment
upon them, anyhow. The system is
still in process of development in
England, where the signs aie thick
ening that the old feudal and oli
garchic elements that clog it must
shortly be eliminated. A iicicditary
bianeli of pailiainciit, or one not the
creation of the people, directly or
indirectly, has no pait in the parlia
mentary system by right.
Mr. Carlylc's question as to
whether any business would or could
ever bo done by the "six bundled
and llfty-cigbt iniscullancoiis per
sons," watched and ciiticizcd by
"twenty-seven millions, mostly
fools," has been answered by history
gloriously in tho allirinntive. In spite
of hundreds of clogs upon pallia-
nientary self-government, it has
done more for the advancement of
human welfare iu the last hundred
years than all the cynical philosophy
of the period from Diogenes to
Carlyle. There is no wisdom, at all
events, iu calling other people fools,
nor in crying down every human
institution that docs not display
more perfection than humanity it
self. Mr. Spencer's assertion that "the
great political superstition of the
present is the divine right of par
liaments," must be taken lu the
light of bis views as to the i elation
of divinity to humanity, is be not
the leader of that philosophy which
refuses to acknowledge a divine basis
for any claim of humanity? We
would not deprecate raising Hie
question of whether parliaments mo
the best agencies attainable for
peoples to govern themselves by.
Hut when it comes to tho question
of whether :i people have a right to
choose that Or anv other form of
rule, we have no hesitation in saying
that if anything can be proved to be
a part of tho divine polity toward
men, it is that they should be given
freedom of choice in managing their
affairs as individuals, families, tribes
and nations, certain weal to follow
their choice of the right and woo
that of the wrong.
Our Legislature's last session's
I woik, which our correspondent has
chosen to disparage in the interest
of liis argument, is not a fair crite
rion of the value of parliamentary
institutions, any more than the
failure of the writer of this in mak
ing a fortune out of a sugar planta
tion, should ho try it, would prove
that canc-nlantinj! upon these
Islands is an unprofitable business.
While not admitting that our Legis
lattiro'8 work was no wholly con
temptible as he would represent it,
we consider that wherein our Legis
latuie failed was in being a parlia
ment of free, intelligent, popular
choice. If wo are to be governed
from within, however, wo should
consider the proper advice for our
people is to perfect as far as possi
ble our parliamentary system. How
ever, wo shall await with interest
Mr. Keiiyon's bchemo of action for
ourselves, which is lo be preferred

THE WAR ON THE DUCKS.
Eunoit Hcu.r.TiN' : To one or
mote of the live who wrote the " ox-
ordinary" article on shooting in
your last issue, I would say, that
neither Mr. Spalding nor myself
pretends to any greater skill with a
shot-gun than our neighbors. Wo
pay the regular shooting license,
and bunt for the sake of tho sport
and not for competition. A bag of
00 duck 1 consider u splendid one,
even if made between live men.
With regard to our own bag, we
have good reason to be proud of it,
for although the plover is a "little
bird." bo is game and capital eating,
and most of tlicin were shot singly
a;id on the wing. The contrast you
refer to was not suggested by nic
and no such intimation was given to
the reporter. The "mallard" was
the lirst to my knowledge ever shot
here, and is an exceedingly rare
bird in this region, as Mr. Dole, our
local authority on Island birds, will
testify. One of the livu to whom it
was shown informed mo that he
didn't know what variety of bird it
was. Another told me he had never
seen such a duck before, and classi
fied a miserable spoonbill as a
"Oreat Xor'wester." I concluded,
to stop then, lest I should glean the
information that the poormallard was
a gadwall, smew, shclldrake or nier

TO "ONE OF THE FIVE."
EiiiTou Rru.UTix: From the arti
cle published in Thursday's Rut.
i.utin bj' " One of the Five," we
arc pained to learn that this gentle
man interprets an article previously
published in same paper, alluding
to some large bags of game recently
made by local sportsmen, as an at
tempt to detract from his one-fifth
of the fame in having captured CO
odd thicks in a two days' hunt. We
hasten to disclaim any such intent
and assume this mighty Nimrod that
we fully appreciate the glory due to
live men, and sundry dogs, for bag
ging CO ducks in a two days' bunt.
By a mathematical calculation we
find this to represent it daily bag to
each gun of six ducks, or supposing
that 12 hours a day (a moderate
estimate) were consumed in hunting,
each man killed a duck every two
hours, or something les-, than one a
minute. It is not, however, entirely
tho number but tho kind of their
game for which these gentlemen
deserve credit. Upon inquiry we
find that the majority of ducks
killed wcro "great big Nor' westers"
great guns! How the Caltfornian
hunter would laugh to know that the
insignificant little "spoonio" that
lie allows to pass him unharmed as
not worth shooting, goes by so for
midable a nnmu in Hawaii nei. How
ever, we have beard that "One" or
more "of the Five," overcome by
their success, intend to make a busi
ness of hunting, so we will not dis
parage the merits of spoonbills fur
ther. As to any of the party having
previously killed two mallards, we
do not for an instant dispute the
assertion, as domesticated birds of
this family probably do not roost
high in his neighborhood, but we
would like to know whether ho
bagged them with salt or matches.
