One correspondent shows up some
current errors regarding the compo
sition of parties in this Kingdom,
and endeavors to hold the balances
evenly between the estimates made
of each other by the parties. Another
correspondent illustrates a point of
the first one's letter, when he sweep
ingly attributes all the ills alllieting
the country to the present adminis
tration. It is high time the nonsense about
"missionary party" was blown
away. In the sense in which the
term had its origin, there is no such
party now in existence. A great
deal of hurtful prejudice against all
that is pure, honest, lovely, and of
good report is created by the per
petuation of the name in politic?. No
suggestion, no action, in the direc
tion of moral reforms Hint are going
forward promisingly in other parts
of the world, can be made here with
out being met by the sneer that it is
or the "missionary party." A
voice or a hand raised against law
lessness or vice must be ' mission
ary." To protest against facilitating
drunkenness and its train of disas
trous effects is only the act of a
"missionary" partisan. The natives
are even encouraged to consent
to their own debauchery and
destruction, so that the ' mission
ary" people may be spited. There
is abundance of scope for a real
missionary party upon the group,
and the members of such should not
expect anything better than similar
people in all ages have received from
the world, namely, reproach and
persecution. Whether there is such
a party now hi existence here it is
not for us to bay. What wo object
to is the application of the term
"missionary" to the mixture of
creeds and nationalities constituting
the opposition to the present Govern
ment. If it was the true missionary
that the name was derived from, it
doc' not fit the party in question.
No more is it applicable- in the sense
ill which it is undoubtedly used, as
implying the counterfeit missionary,
the mercenary trader in the gospel,
who unfortunately creeps into every
missionary field under the sun. Let
political parties stand upon their
own principles and merits, and not
havo religion dragged in the wire of
himirtn nmbilions. To hnve tills
atlvtcc followed by nil llio people
would work ndvuntngo to both reli
gion and politics.
One word lo "A Voter." There
lire two things that show him to bo
too extreme in his view of the cause
of lrntd times, l'irst, a similar con
dition of things prevails in every
other country we have knowledge of.
Secondly, the business men and
general public here arc taking
tilings too easily, respecting politics,
for people who believe that nil their
concerns arc being hurried headlong
to ruin by the Government.
When angels can be engaged for
hack-drivers, then newspapers may
be added to the other scriptures.
This is the time to remind the les

No one has replied to the query,
whether the Osage orange grows on
these Islands. Perhaps it is here,
but known by another name. The
importance of the question is in the
fact that the leaves of the tree fur
nish food for tho silkworm.
The defeat of the longtime cham
pion oarsman of the world, Ilanlan,
by Beach, may be explainable upon
climatic grounds. After the Cana
dian's victory over Clifford, he is
reported as saying in an interview:
" The heat troubled me a great deal.
I spent as much time "as possible in
a cellar at Gladcsville on Saturday.
It was the first time I ever took my
shirt off to row anyone."
Ennui: Bumxtin: Any one in
the habit of regularly reading the
newspapers printed and published
hero in the English language will
discover that in this little country of
mixed races and many nationalities
there are two political parlies the
party supporting the existing ad
ministration and the party in oppo
sition thereto. He will also find
that these two parties are variously
named, the former being sometimes
called Mr. Gibson's party, at others
the King's party, and again the
National party, and that the latter
is spoken of as the Missionary
party, Fort Street Church party,
and the Independent party.
Should the reader's understand
ing of the respective constitutions
of the two parties depend entirely
on these appellations his conceptions
are liable lo be confused and errone
ous. For instance, when he reads
and hears about the "King's party"
he naturally infers the existence of
a divided allegiance, which in fact
docs not exist. So also "Missionary
party" and "Fort Street Church
party" are terms which convey the
impression that the party is made
up of Missionaries or of l'ort Street
Church members, or of the followers
of Missionaries or believers in Fort St.
Church. Whereas the party so de
nominated numbers in its ranks men
who are not missionaries, never have
been missionaries, and have no con
nection with missionaries; it in
cludes some prominent Roman Ca
tholic? and Anglican Churchmen
who neither attend Fort Street
Church nor sauction its teachings ;
and others of the party belong to no
Christian Church and subscribe to
no theological doctrines. On the
other hand, there ma' be found
among the party supporting the pre
sent administration some members
of missionary families and other
adherents of Fort Street Church.
None the less confused and con
tradictory are the viows likely to be
formed by the mere newspaper
reader respecting the character and
aims of the respective parties. One
section of the newspaper press
represents the Government and its
supporters as patriotic, progressive,
and .honest, and always doing the
best possible for the nation's good
and the country's advancement;
while those in opposition are repre
sented as numerically insignificant,
discontented and turbulent because
out olllce, opposed in heart and pur
pose to the native race, athirst for
personal emolument, and actuated
by purely selfish aims. Another
section of the press declares the
Government to be dishonest, cor
rupt, capable only of ovil, and
working certain anil speedy ruin to
every good, and its supporters
aiders and abetters of the existing
wrong and the coining destruction,
tho opposition having monopolized
uprightness, ability, and patriotism.
These conflicting representations
arc made, too, with all the positive
ness of certain truth and the dog
matism of infallibility not as ex
pressing viows that may be more or
less partial, not as declaring beliefs
that may possibly be erroneous, not
as utteriug opinions subject to modi
fications. The most self-evident and
most incontrovertible truth could
not be more unequivocally or more
The stranger reading such antago
nistic averments, each so confidently
and persistently maintained, is
puzzled to decide wherein lies tho
truth. Confining his nttcntion to
cither statement apart from the other
he gets the impression that the
Government is the most perfect and
the Opposition the most faulty on
earth, or that the Opposition is an
embodiment of everything good
without a taint of evil, and the
Government a concentration of
wickedness without a redeeming
quality. Taking Hie two statements
together he sees at a glance they
cannot, possibly both bo true, for
truth cannot contradict itself. If
he is a man experienced in such
matters elsewhere, and withal pos
sessed of a little practical common
sense, he will probably conclude
that each statement contains a mix
ture of truth and falsehood, that the
exact truth lies somewhere between
the two, that neither parly is so bad
nor so good as represented by the
other, that in ench there arc good
and bad men, that each may have
committed errors oven though moved
by the best of intentions, that neither
is so pure as to be above censure nor
so corrupt as to deserve indiscrimi
nate execration. It may be added
that personal acquaintance and per
sonal contact with representatives
of each party tend to strengthen
A question naturally arises here
respecting the true character of the
local press. The decision has been
already reached that it is, putting it
mildly, extreme m its statement of
fact. But is it designedly or unin
tentionally so? Is the high coloring
due to narrow prejudice honestly
formed, or is it the wilful exagger
ation of party feeling? If the
former, the injustice is in some de
gree extenuated by the fact that the
most enlightened human judgment
is fallible : if the latter, the violence
dono to every principle of honor and
justice is discreditable to all con
cerned. The true answer, however,
probably indicates a mixture of the
two ingenuous prejudice and in
One other question, and I have
done for the present : Would not it
be well for this little kingdom and
its people if those who consider
themselves called upon to champion
the public cause were a little more
moderate in their utterances? Ab
solute unanimity of opinion ma'
neither be possible nor desirable,
but we look for a certain appreci
ation of justice and honor between
man and man, admitting liberty of
thought and speech without abuse.
EiHTOit Bulletin : Times are
very hard at present. Everyone of
of us feels it, and it cannot be de
nied. But there is nothing without
a cause, and depression in the sugar
trade has been accused of being the
cause of these hard times. Of
course anything that affects sugar
the main, the only staple must
affect everything and everybody in
these Islands. But how can it be
that whilst times are certainly much
harder this year than they were at
the same period last year, on the
other hand, it is proven by the last
Custom House Report, for the first
(piarter of 188i, that sugar produc
tion has been greater by 10 million
pounds in this last quarter than
what it was in the corresponding
one in 1881? Further, the present
prices of sugar arc about the same
as those paid at this time last year,
if even they arc not better. And if
to these facts we add the remark
that several plantations have recent
ly paid dividends, it would seem
that the sugar business cannot be in
such strait conditions as to be re
sponsible for the bard times and
general feeling of depression and
anxiety. Is not all this, and with
it the complete stagnation of busi
ness, due solely to the present bad
government? The universal feeling
of diflldcnce against the present ad
ministration is the only cause of
'hard times," and the 'maladminis
tration of public finances has been
the finishing stroke for paralyzing
the whole nation. Is it not, then,
high time that the officials who arc
responsible for such disastrous re
sults, 6hould mako room for new
men and ncwjwlitics ?
