A COMMON CAUSE.
Tu h.ive the linel, laid down for a
eaubo of political reform, which
should attract all the patriotic cic-
lnentb of the kingdom, would lie u
task of no .small magnitude. It
would involve an amount of woik
that could Scarcely by any possibi
lity be compressed within even our
long legislative recess. Consider
for moment a poition of what
would have to be accomplished.
Without exaggeration, there U some
thing like a docu of questions, each
vital to the future of the kingdom, to
be dibcujs(!(l deliberately, rationally,
and with a simplicity to be appic
eiatcd by the masses. Upon some
of these questions there exists a
diversity of opinion among oppo
nents of the present administration,
as well as among its supporters.
Nothing but earnest and thorough
discussion of all open questions will
secure an intelligent public opinion
upon them. Especially onerous
labor needs to be incurred to have
public affairs elucidated for the!
benelit of the native electorate. This
is a matter that our English-speaking
publicists appear to hold loo
much in the background. With the
aboriginal vole preponderating in
the various constituencies, it is upc
dess to ihing of a progressive natibn
al policy triumphing, unless the Ha
waiians are led to an intelligent con
ception of all the issues, .i With' evi
dences abounding of the teachable--ness
of that iat,e, and in view of the
patent fact of its controlling voice iij
affairs, it is marvellous that, on the
Opposition side at least, thci c is nd
systematic effort to cultivate public
opinion in the Hawaiian division of
the body politic. Politicians may
or may not tako this hint, but one
day, it is safe to predict, they will
come to acknowledge that their
hammering at the English mind
alone, honccr malleable (it may le
to their stiokes, has only amounted
to-pounding the air, bo'far as shap
ing the destinies of the nation by
'constitutional methods is concerned.
It is, indeed, a supi erne -duty' de
volving upon the representatives of
Anglo-Saxon civilization to do all
possible for the further enjightcn
ment and elevation of the 'people
who began so well the race of civilij
nation as did these Ilaw'aiians. They
have been hindered in the good pro
gress by being handicapped with the
dregs and offscourings, the vices and
depravities, of nations that' first gave
them leaders to conduct them into
upward paths. Therefore, it is Jn
cunibent upon members of those
nationalities who have cast in their
lot with this leading Polynesian race
ampliation, to assume the responsi
bilities resigned with Jifo by thp
pioneers of civilization in theso isles.
Otherwise, they will justly come
under like condemnation witli those
.who have stiivcn to undo the goo(l
work so auspiciously begun.
EDUOATINC THE MASSES.
' The San Fianciseo (Jail discusses
the question of "Education ;and
pallor." It is given .a text in the
opinion cxptcsscd by the Virginia
lState Superintendent of Agricultuic,
"that schooling is a bad'thing for
coloicd people, as it tends to unfit
their, for labpr in the fields,'" In
tiiis kingdom sometimes the senti
ment is heard that the prosperity of
the country is based upon tho biuta
lity of a 'large pioportion of its in
habitants. "Main strength and
stupidity" arc the qualifications
plantoriuook for in their labor, ru
coiding to the uUarnnco of a mem
ber of their Comention. Such ideas
me calculated to delude Ihohiind,
on account of u cci tain clement of
truth Isolated examples show them
to contain. It is a satisfaction to
know Hint these notions have not
been allowed to iiilluencc the educa
tional policy of this kingdom. The
Legislature Is never moic cheei fully
liberal than when voting the public
funds for educating the children nf
natives and those of field laborers.
Suicly nobody would apprehend as
a calamity the lising of a propoition
of these classes, by the foico of
talent1, developed by the schools, to
higher positions in life than those
occupied by their patents 1 Wo
quotu the following sensible observa
tions fiotn the (Jail: ' e
It is probably true that a marked
supenotity in education inspires a
man. whether white or colored, with
the ambition to get his living with
out manual labor. Such, poisons
tegard their superior education n
so much capital, which should be
made to yield -onic iclitrn. Hut a
gradual lifting of the masses of the
people from absolute ignorance, so
far as schooling enters into educa
tion, should not raie them above
their business. All stand on a higher,
plane and are better fitted for the
work they have to do. Their higher
standing is not relative to each
other, but to all with the generation
that preceded them. There is
nothing in their condition which
should incite one to an assumption
of superiority over the others. Let
us take, for example, n neighborhood
of one hundred heads of families,
farmers, mechanics and labotcis,
who have schooling sufficient to en
able them to tcad, wtitc and cast up
their own accounts. Let us compare
this neighborhood with another
equally well located, but from which
the schoolhousc has been banished.
Which of these is likely to 'become
the most proficient in their various
lines of business? Which will get
the most enjoyment out of life?
Would not the ability .to read in his,
leisure horns afford some happiness
to the laborer? Would not the
ability to stoic his miud with facts
and keep jLhc run of current events
cuablc him not only to do his woik
better, but to pass the time devoted
to woik the more pleasantly?
Probably there will be less talk
about education ,'sp'oiling youth if or'
mactieal usefulness, after full frui
tion lias been reached by the move
ments now afoot throughout thel

Persons accused of offences coming
