As a nation advances in age its
politics increase in complexity, and
it outgrows the methods of state
policy which at previous stages were
ample and sulllcient for most pur
poses. What were necessities be
come abuses, such as the holding of
seats in the legislature by public
officials. With the increase of na
tional substance come fresh respon
sibilities of Government. New care
for private rights arises from tho
multiplication of individual and cor
porate stakes in the country. No
observer of Hawaiian affairs can bo
oblivious to the fact that much of
the kingdom's habiliments have
waxed old and require to be replaced
by new garments. Changing and
changed circumstances dictate fresh
departures in public policy. The
wheels of tho Hawaiian car of pro
gress have been allowed to run too
much in ruts, and the result is moro
or less jolting, with which the pas
sengers are becoming discommoded.
That metaphorical vehicle must be
raised upon rails, to guido it smooth
ly and unerringly on to successive
stages of national elevation and
prosperity, Anomalies innumerable
clog our system of government,
which must bo removed. A new
spirit of enterprise has been awakened
among tho people, requiring to be
fostered and encouraged with sedu
lous devotion. Assaults have been
vnado mid threatened upon the tlc
f eiiccs of public and private, morality,
which will havo to bo repelled. TIio
natloual mind should bo thoroughly
imbued with the maxim, "Eternal
vigilance is tho price of liberty." A
drowsy public opinion and n dorm
ant private iuUueiicc nro roots of nil
evil in the affairs of this kingdom.
An opportunity is shortly to be
afforded the nation of retracing its
stops and taking a. fresh start. The
general elections of representatives
to tho Legislature take place within
a year. Whatever anomalies may
prevent our constitutional Byslcm
from being regarded as approximat
ing to a perfect standard of responsi
ble governments it still cannot be
denied that the Legislature holds the
key to the political situation. The
people have the making of half the
Assembly, and tho country is for
tunate in having a House of Nobles
that, although irresponsible, contains
a largo proportion of independent
men, whose interests arc identical
with the general welfare, and whoso
standing and slake in the community
are a good guarantee of their trust
worthiness. "While no constitutional
or statutory safeguard to the inde
pendence of parliament exists, it
behooves the people to make the
best possible use of the privileges
they possess. Let them do their
duty by themselves and the country,
according to present means and
opportunities, and theu the3' will be
spared, at least, self-crimination for
results that they did their best to
aveit. Their sacred privilege of
electing legislators now confronts
the people of this kingdom, and in
capable and bad government will be
their just retribution if they do not
absolve themselves of the high res
ponsibility to the utmost of
energies, powers and wisdom.

The elevation of the Hon. Edward
Preston to the vacancy on the bench,
occasioned by the lamented death
of Judge Austin, is an executive act
that redounds to the credit of His
Majesty's wisdom. To his position

brings a strong and refined intellect,
profound legal erudition, personal
and professional probity of charac
ter, firmness of mind and devotcd

give more general satisfaction to tho
bar or to the public.

Soon after the members of the
Gladstone Ministry had retired from
Windsor Castle, on June 24th, after
delivering the seals of olllce, the
members of the new Ministry formed
by the jtfarquis of Salisbury arrived
and went through the ceremony of
accepting office from the Queen and
receiving' the seals, making the net
of allegiance by kissing Ilcr Ma
jesty's hand. Great crowds of peo
ple nssembled at the railway depot
in London upon the arrival of the
train bearing the new Ministry.
Mr. Gladstone read to the House
of Commons this correspondence be
tween himself and the Marquis of
Salisbury, relating to the deadlock,
and which was conducted through
the medium of the Queen. Mr.
Gladstone's letters convey to the

took his seat upon the woolsack in
the House of Lords. The Marquis
of Salisbury was cheered as he en
tered the House, and made a short
address. He explained that the
Queen informed Iiini it was her
opinion lie might reasonably accept
olllce upon the assurances given by
Gladstono, Her Majesty nt the same
time pointing out the serious injury
to tho public service if a settlement
was longer delayed or now complica
tions should arise. The Marquis
said that he then, with the unani
mous consent of his colleagues,
thought it his duty to assume olllce,
and he said the next four or five
weeks would show he had taken tho
proper course. The Marquis, in
concluding his address, made an ap
peal for the support of all good men.
The Lords adjourned until the
0th of July. In the House of Com
mons only formal business was done,
and an adjournment was mado to

which is much more than half the
entire number of all deaths in

the rate of mortality in Spain has
been far greater than it was in
France, and latterly it lias become
greater than it was last year, even
in Naples. The average ratio of
deaths to cases now is about four in

speaking, the death rate was two in
