On Friday the A.h'crlifrr had an
uitiolc Unit asked, in effect, whnt all
tin; talk about constitutional reform
meant. It is n hopeful sign to tlnd
till! only paper Mipporting the Gov
rrninont through thick and thin,
deigning to pay .o much attention to
public opinion. The article referred
to calls upon the Opposition picss
'Mo come down from the clouds of
generalities and to descend to parti
culars." No doubt the cha'llenge
will be accepted, if not -.doner, when
the Government press condescends
to reply to the hill of particulars re
garding the present Ministry's, crook
ed ways. For instance, neither ex
planation, excuse nor reparation hat
ever been vouchsafed for the illegal
and unintelligible lin.mcinl statement
recently put lorth. Our contempo
rary would make it appear Unit the
desire for constitutional reform now
prevalent is merely a revival of a
political struggle of a score of years
ago, which it says was "a light, not
(or a constitution, but for power;
nol for principles, but against in
dividuals." It will probably lind.
when the present workings of the
thoughtful minds in the community,
over the unsatisfactory administra
tion of iiffnii-., crystallize-' into a
definite movement, titat it is very
much mistaken. Whatever wiethe
merits of that foimcr .struggle, into
which it is not our purpose now to
impure, we have, reason to know that
a powerful propoition of those who
are sick of the existing state of
affairs would display very little, and
no laslin;', enthusiasm over any
Opposition policy that did nol, com
prehend more than replacing the pre
sent Ministry with another, even of
men much superior in every way.
Indeed, it is impossible to hope for
any great betterment of government
under such an odd piece of patch
work as the constitution of this
Kingdom presents. With the met est
feint at conferring representative
government, it combines the obsolete
autocratic elements of English mon
archy in the middle ages, the decay
ing aristocratic privileges of the
present Fnglish constitution, and
the most faulty characteristics of
the American republican system.
Monarohs may come und go, minis
tries rise and fall, but administra
tions that were failures throughout
.still have a powerful influence in
affairs in the persons they have
loft in the two potent but irre
sponsible bodies, the lYivy Council
and the House of Nobles. A Minis
try may have no policy, nor brains
to devise one; their pet measures
may bo cast out by the Legislature
as rubbish and themselves snubbed
by formal ccimiro and studied par
liamentary indignity; but if the
Appropriation Hill can be squeezed
through, giving them authority to
handle the revenues of the nation,
they may hold their places and emo
luments from one session of the Lear
islature to another. F.vou if con
demned at the polls, there is no
guaranty Hint they will bo dismissed
unless tho verdict against them is
sustained by such numbers in the
Assembly as to make them wholly
impotent, and, if-disniisscd, thcru is
, no assurance that their successors
have the support of the people. Add
to these anomalies the hopelessness
of having an independent Legislature
.while it is so largely composed as at
present of Government officials, from
Governors to district magistrates.
Is it much wonder that under such n
system tho whole head is sick, and
the wholo heart faint ?
Tho Advertiser says it "should
much like to see a programme from
thoe would be constitutional re
formers." So should we. In our
case the wish 13 based upon the hope
Unit it would be u programme that
we could conscientiously and en
thusiastically support. Those who
stand in the way of a thorough over
hauling of the ship of slate are not
the friends of that independent Ha
waiian nationality generally admitted
to be bet for tho inhabitants of the
group and for the world's pence and
commerce. Ono of the first essentials
of such nn independent state is that
the sybtem of government shall
confer upon its subjects as free and
honorable :i citizenship ns that of the
countries from which the foreign
population is cliiclly drawn?
The plundering Arab, ' Auti
shamus," to-day lays rough hands
on court parasites.
An ntticlo in lirttdslrcit's, the
leading commercial journal of the
Fast, gives u comparison of tiie
trade of the United States with Ha
waii and that with other countries,
similar to that which recently ap
peared in the San Francisco .Mer
chant, and concludes as follows:
"Indeed, including Mexico, the little
Kanaka Kingdom of the North Paci
fic comes within S201J72 of the
entire exports to all American coun
tries, except the Dominion of Ca
nada. This is a suggestive fact, and
indicates that the commercial idea
will best be carried out by maintain
ing existing trading relations with
,the Tinted State.-,. If any change
be made it sdiould be towards ex
pansion." There is a hydrophobic article in
this morning's Adrei liner, upon
Mis. Lcavitt's mission. It gives
the cue to every prejudice that its
mi iter can conjure up in the commu
nity against the movement. The
talented lady who lias come to lead
the campaign against intemperance
probably doeo not need to be told of
a single oiie of tho obstacles to suc
cess mentioned. Similar ones over
come elsewhere cannot but be fami
liar to her. The very same local
prejudices' Including that against
the prophet at home, are just as
strong in thousands of towns, greater
and smaller, in America where tho
temperance movement has tri
umphed. At all events, we should
think it would better become a res
pectable newspaper, if it could not
conscientiously help such ;i needful
work as. that just begun by Mrs.
Lcavitl. to at least not try to hinder
The reportcis of a morning and
an evening paper wen; refused per
mits to go out in the pilot boat to
meet the S. S. Alameda, upon the
ground Unit the privilege was only
accorded to those having friends on
boaul. This was not a matter of
surprise, for it i- notorious that the
press here. does not receive the same
sort of consideiation that it does in
such less enlightened places as New
Yoik, Philadelphia and San Fran
cisco. It became, however, a fair
matter of complaint when (he 'strict
rules of the Health Olllco were
broken to oblige a citizen whose
only business in going out was to
give the signal for a salute as the
steamer came up the harbor, if
Maine had been elected. It was
probably deemed more important
that the few who had arranged for
the salute should bo gratified than
that the news of the election should
be given the public at the very
cailiest possible, moment by the
local papers. It turned out, how
ever, that the saluto gave false in
telligence, and this paper no thanks
to any outside favor was out with
tho con cut news of tho election mi
hour after the steamer whs moored
to the wlmrf.
The Adwrtiscr politely asks for
proof of the, following assertions
made by this paper on the lfith in
stant: "Tho Hoard of Health sta
tistics, imperfect ns they are, prove
it to be one of tho most unhealthy
cities in Christendom." As to tho
imperfect nature of the Hoard of
Health statistics, it is perhaps enough
to point out thnt whereas they re
presented tho number of deaths hi
1881 tiB 518, the Boaul of Kduca- ,
lion records showed it to have been
900, a difference of 442. Then a ,
very largo proportion of the deaths
reported are. attributed to causes un
known, which shows anything but
perfection in the olllcial tables, i
That the sanitary condition of the
city is as bad a9 wo have slated is
proved by the death rale of 1881, '
exclusive of the deaths by small-pox,
having been neatly 02 in the thou
sand, which is, according to the i
J I mca Han Monthly, "three times
ns great as that of the city of Lon
don, more than three times that of '
San Francisco, and two and u half
times that of New York." Satisfied? i
JINKS AND DUMPS ON THE ELECTION.
The Hri.urnx reporter had quite
a surprise Saturday evening. Stroll
ing round town a little after dark,
who should ho come across but his
old long lost fiicnds Jinks and
Humps, on the verandah of the
Post-olllce, in deep Presidential con
versation. From their general ap
pearance and the color of their faces,
they looked as if they had just come
up from the country, and had a kind
of comc-to-gel-on-the-sprce look
about them.' The lcportcr lit n
cigar and sitting on the steps ns near
as possible to them heard the follow
ing conversation :
"" I'll tell you what it is, Dumps,
there's a done-brown lot of men in
this city to-day. They felt cock
sutc of Jim Maine's election. The
news that Cleveland is elected has
ilabcrgastiealod the whole crowd.
I'm right glad the chap's got in,
and believe lie 'II make as good a
boss as any on 'em before him. It
was big fun, you bet, on the wharf
this morning before the steamer
conic alongside. They sent out an
Irishman on the pilot boat so as to
get the news and send a signal for n
salute if Maine was elected, lie
somehow made an Irish stew of his
job and they did lire a salute for
Maine, which made all the Demo
crats scared, and the chaps in white
hats all whooped, and said, ' AVc
told you so!' Hut you know.
Humps, when I seed thnt boat com
ing along at a kind of funeral pro
cession pace, thinks I, Jim Maine, I
see it plain you're a goner. 1 could
see those chaps with the white hats
beginning to turn whiter than their
hats, and as the steamer got well
round the last corner that little
wide-awake Merchant street news
chap hollered out with tears in his
eyes, 'It's Cleveland! After
which there was a general exchange
of sighs. All of a sudden I felt the
wharf shake, and on turning round,
there was Fatty from the hotel
dancing a hornpipe, and looking as
happy as if he had just got married.
Then one chap threw his white hat
into the ocean, another carried his
behind him, and the rest of t hem stole
softly home like a lot of half
drowned rats. You know. Humps,
that little fellow on Merchant street
who sells and rents houses had been
told by some of tho American big
bugs with plenty of coin, to get all
ready for having a $.iUO torchlight
affair, with Hergcr's band in front.
That young boy in the bank who
counts out $20 worth of silver in
three licks, and the brown-looking
chap in the next shanty who insures
your life, both got badly left. They
were going to paint the whole town
red, but after the steamer got in,
they were seen with crape on their
hats, so 1 suppose they heard news
of the death of some relations, and
didn't like to take part in any
Humps, who had just finished his
cigar, interrupted Jinks and asked
him if he had heard about the elec
tion of Blaine in Honolulu.
" Oh, yes," said Jinks, " I read
the result in the Hi:m.i:ti.v, and I
believe they wish they hadn't a done
it now. Somebody told mo the re
sult with the names has been sent
to Cleveland. There wasn't many
Democrats in Honolulu before the
steamer arrived, but now there seems
to be heaps on 'cm. You should
have seen old Hill Wilder, he looked
as happy as if a fortune had been
left him. He hunted round for a
live rooster, but couldn't find one,
so got a paper one, stuck it in his
hat, and paraded the streets like
Ioano the dandy docs. "When he
met a Maine chap, he asked him,
'what's the latest news from tho
Coast?' which made 'cm bile. The
best fun of all was, Sam Nott
thought Maine was elected, anil put
his and Logan's pictures up outsido
his store but they didn't stay there
long, it was too cold a day for oil
Just at this point a friend of Jinks,
whom he had not seen since the
Legislature was sitting, came along
after his mail and recognizing each
other, they till three walked off to
Nollo's Saloon for a drink of soda
water, leaving the reporter alone.
