THE 'USER'S TACTICS.
What is the use of carrying on a
controversy with anybody who re
fuses to accept an unequivocal state
ment of your standpoint? The Ad
vertiser is not going to drag us into
a "you did," and "you did not,"
colloquy. If our contemporary con
siders that our initial nrticlc of the
.present discussion of " Municipal
Government" was dictated by a
clique, instead of being, as we have
averred, an entirely original attempt
to influence public opinion, let it
take all the advantage it can of its
own opinion. There is no law upon
our statute books to compel a man
convinced against his will to be
otherwise than of the same opinion
still. Self-opinion is the best pos
sible refuge, doubtless, of anybody
who has the facts against him. It
, is, therefore, not surprising that a
paper like the Advertiser, bound
down to the undeviating support of
particular private interests, should
necessarily often have to take cover
under the opinions made to order
for it. Nothing could be more
natural, either, for a paper in such a
position, than to be as incredulous
as our contemporary shows itself
respecting the possibility of another
journal giving expression to inde
pendent ideas. Not for the sake of
convincing the Advertiser which
we own to be impossible by any
rational method but to show the
public, how absurd is that journal's
attempt to represent us as wearing
the collar of a clique, a few remarks
will not be out of place. This is
not the first occasion upon which
the Bulletin, under its present
direction, advocated municipal gov
' eminent. Some months ago, before
the writer knew what kind of fran-
' chisc obtained here, an article in
favor of the above object appeared
in these columns. It met with a
rather unfavorable response from
some other papers, upon the ground
that self-government, under a fran
chise that would give the city such
rulers' ns its present representatives
in the Legislature, would be a great
calamity. That view of the ques
tion appeared, upon somo further
investigation, to be in accord with
the sentiments of most intelligent
people holding a substantial stake in
the community, Many people re
gard it as hopeless to attempt any
reformation in the affairs of the
Kingdom, holding to the doctrine
that a turning point will soonest be
reached by giving the " powers that
bo" rope enough and the pro
verbial result will not bo long de
layed. This is, however, a way of
looking at things that we have not
the nature to adopt. There is too
strong a llavor of pusillanimity in it
for descendants of Anglo-Saxon peo
ples who wrested popular privileges
and human rights from the mailed
hands of hereditary despots. The
Advertiser lnys great stress upon
tho following sentence In our so
called initial article, "The franchise
would have to bo made high, deter
mined by both property and educa
tional tests." It says, "The work
ing classes, small property-owners
and native llawailaus do not come
in anywhere in this scheme." Will
our contemporary be good enough
to say why? "We give the public
our word that the classes named
were nol excluded further than
would he involved by our fixed views
upon the question of the franchise
in tho abstract. Tho term ' high "
in the above statement of opinion
was only meant in a comparative
sense. It was not prescribed by
any person or party in this King
dom, but suggested by the observa
tion of the writer of the article, of
the working of a moderate property
franchise in another country. In
that country a door was opened for
rather loose enrolment of voters by
a personal property qualification,
under which candidates for the
sacred privileges of the suffrage
could make good their claims by
such tricks as displaying borrowed
watches and jewelry before the
Court of Revisors of the electoral
lists. It was with a view to pre
venting such abuses under the pro
posed municipal franchise that the
adjective "high" was inserted.
Our object was no more or less
comprehensive, as regards property,
than to restrict the franchise .o the
actual taxpayers of the city. The
educational test advocated did not
comprise more than rudimentary ac
complishments in either English or
Hawaiian. Such a test would not
shut out a single Hawaiian, nor be a
just hardship to a resident of any
other nationality. No foreigner un
acquainted with cither of the two
ollicial languages of the state can be
expected to possess sufficient know
ledge of local affairs to be entrusted
with a voice in their administration.
Our appeal to the " principal pro
perty holders and more intelligent
classes," to "demand" municipal
government under a special fran
chise, was simply the outcome of an
estimate as to where lay the potent
influence of the community to be in
voked in such a cause as that advo
cated. The going into spasms of
horror by the Advertiser over that
appeal may be explained, possibly,
by a difference of opinion between
that journal and this one as to the
character of the population of this
city. Its directorate may regard
the average citizen of Honolulu as
belonging neither to the principal
property-holders nor to the more
intelligent classes. The expression
of such a sentiment, however, we
consider slanders the larger portion
of the workingmen of Honolulu, who
are intelligent above, the average of
cities abroad, and withal many of
them well-endowed with property,
the fruit of their own industry.
While a marriage ceremony was
in progress at Woodhaven, N. Y.,
the bride was shot down by a young
man who had either been jilted by
the young lady or slighted in the
bids to the wedding. In either
case the fellow needs hanging, and
can't live well without it.
A married man n.amed George
Doherty was treated to a fracturing
of his skull and leg besides some
other damage, while escaping at
midnight from the house of John
Smith with whose wife he had been
on terms of unnecessary intimacy.
The event occurred in Philadelphia,
the " city of brotherly love."
The Advertiser is crvlling for the
fool-killer. That functionary is need
ed over at its office to dispose of the
person who imagines we made an
accusation of lack of courage against
the Minister of the Interior. When
our readers require an interpreter of
the contents of this paper, we hope
they will choose a competent one.

The families of some of the farmers
of Lancaster, Pcnn., having nice
young girls, have been receiving at
tention from a band of robbers in
festing the neighboring mountains.
Two very innocent and respectable
girls, having been out to an alarm
ing late hour one night, were found
by their mother on the mountain
top, at daybreak in the thieves'
den, where the young Misses had
been dancing all night. A score or
so of other dwellings near the
mountain were invaded in a similar
manner. The citizens were in a
state of excitement bordering on
desperation. All the hardware stores
in town had been cleaned out of
everything in the shape of fire arms,
bought up by the people to protect
themselves. The authorities suc
ceeded in hunting down some seven
or eight of the gang. Among them
was found a colored preacher, who
had been an exhorter at campmeet
ings. Girls should keep good hours
and stay at home nights.
