The Saturday Press, discussing
the " next campaign," says, "Sev
eral Independents of tried character
have consented to run next year."
If this lefers to members of the
present Legislature, who have been
faithful to the confidence reposed in
them, and shown capacity for their
duties, it is, perhaps, all right. It
is only fair that such men should
have the first offer of popular sup
port, particularly if nothing can be
urged against their record. But, if
we arc to have popular representative
institutions after the best models, at
least the formality of asking them
to stand should be observed. A
while ago there was a discussion in
the press concerning the apathy of
vouutr men toward politics. On
that occasion a writer in a late con
temporary pointed out, as one of
such causes, that the interest and
sympathies of young men were not
solicited, and that there was no or
ganization here to enlist their sup
port or through which they could
work. That was a point well-taken.
There can never be a sturdy public
opinion here, having a potent influ
ence upon the administration of
affairs, until those who profess re
gard for government in the interest
of the people manifest a willingness
to have their own aspirations con
trolled by the popular will. Mr.
Marques is not the only one who has
asked, respecting the above state
ment of our weekly contemporary,
who has asked the consenting in
dependent politicians to rim next
year. If the names of these candi
dates ate such as to inspire con
fidence and command support, why
should they be nominated in secret
Cibal? Perhaps, however, there is
more in the statement of the Press
than was intended. From the posi
tion hitherto taken by the paper
named, it would be natural to infer
that the promised announcement of
candidates' names awaited their sub
mission to a popular convention. It
would be highly inconsistent on the
part of that journal, after all it has
said during the past year, to be
privy to dictatorial nomination of
candidates by a clique. Until it
rises and explains, therefore, we
shall confine ourselves to depreca
tion of any such procedure as the
announcement on the face of it im
plies. Irresponsible and gratuitous
utterances and actions in the name
of independence and reform, doubt
less, give caustic potency to the
sneers of "a great newspaper " at
all who arc dissatisfied with tho
state of affairs under the present
administtation. Not that tho utmost
freedom of discussion or individual
action is illegitimate or improper,
but whenever the prescription of
measures or men is dictated, either
by persons unknown or too well
known, independent spirits are
alienated from what should he the
common cause of citizens, and dis
union and disaster are the ceitain
Of course, it is
within the right of any citizen to
set himself up for legislative honors.
That none will dispute. But those
who profess belief in the doctiinc of
"government by," ns well as " of"
and "for" the people, might bo
expected to await popular judgment
a? to their claims for candidacy. A
S2lf-norainatcd candidate may bo
elected over half-a-dozen livals at
tho polls, yet have only a small
minority of ids constituency lepos
ingany confidence in him. Party
machinery has beeh subjected to
powerful criticisru, but nothing has
boon ns yet devised to take its plnco
for tho successful operation of re
presentative institutions. " Repub
licans and Democrats," "Liberals
and Tories," "Ins and Outs"
there is room for only two great
parties, at otic moment, in any
smoothly-working system of parlia
mentary government in the world.
THE NEXT CAMPAION.
EuiTon Bulletin- : The last
Saturday Press came out with a
warlike clattering that was quito re
freshing: "several independents of
tried character have consented to
run next year".. .."they can be
elected by united action, hard work
and unflagging belief in the justice
of the independent cause" . . . . "but
it is none too soon to begin." Good
words and flue sentiments! They
show a laudable bracing up for the
fight. But what a pity it is, that
all that rests on a wrong basis, and
that the superstructure of the edifice
of our future? elections, as therein
announced, is precisely the one that
would ensure the faiiuic of the
whole campaign, the failure of every
one of the independent members
1 concede it is "none too late to
begin." But how ovijht the cam
paign to he conducted, and how can
it now he inferred that it is yoiny
to be conducted? It is announced
that triumph can be the reward only
of "united action," and yet the
campaign is prcciselyto be opened by
isolated, personal action and man
agement! "Several independents
have consented to run." AVho has
asked them? And how are the elec
tions to be run? By a few men, by
a coterie, for the benefit of a class,
or by the whole mass of voters, for
the benefit of the nation? That is
what is necessary to settle distinctly,
even before the first shot is fired,
and then the real independent voters
will know what they have to do.
I do not ignore that it lias been
the habit here of managing political
affairs "a huit clos, enfamillc," be
tween a few men very honorable
they undoubtedly were but who as
sumed to be omnipotent leaders
without any one having ever given
them any right to that leadership.
That may have been possible, suffcr
ablc, in former times; but the
whole situation is changed, the
troops for the fight and the enemy
themselves arc different, so that the
tactics must be changed too, if we
don't want the Government to have
absolutely their own way through
our own fault.
And yet so it appears that our po
litical heads intend to follow the old
track. A, B, C, D and E meet very
cautiously at P's residence, with the
intention of settling the next cam
paign. Well, says A, what arc wc
going to do this year and who is to
run? Nothing more simple, says
B ; you and I will run in Oaliu ; C,
D, E and F on the other islands.
We club for the necessary money,
and there we are. But, objects D,
if in the districts we are assigned to,
the voters do not like us, and prefer
other candidates, that will mako a
division and a loss of votes? No
matter, replies B, the voters arc to
vote as we say, not as they may
please, and if there is a split in
their ranks, well, we'll all get left,
that's all, but wc must look out for
that. All right, cries out the cho
rus, that's settled, and after par
taking of a diink of soda water, let
us all very quietly withdraw, for
fear that our meeting should be sus
pected, and that our names as ring
lcadeis get divulged.
Now, I put down as an indispu
table axiom, that, if the electoral
battle is to be gained next year,
that can be expected and obtained
only through the united, unanimous
action of ai.i. the voters who do not
approve of the present administra
tion. All these voters, whether
white or black, red or yellow, must
thus bo formed into one solid, com
pact body. How can that be done?
Simply by telling those hetero
geneous elements as propei ly called
lately by a correspondent of yours
that they have to vote for some un
known candidate rmtionized by some
unknown clique? Or else, by get
ting these elements together, by
making them understand that the
evil and foe aic the same for all and
command unity of action, and by
making them select, designate them
selves, for candidates, such men as
may prove to be the most popular
amongst them ?
I think only one answer can be
made to that, especially when one
fact is taken into consideration, and
that is that truly independent voters
and their number is fast growing
will no loiigtr submit to being
bossed in the old ways. Conse
quently, I bay, before selecting
"candidates who consent to run,"
let us first organize the Opposition
Party, which at present only consists
of isolated growlers who stay m
their own corners, and think or
would act in the most divergent
Organization has been much talk
ed ol, but nothing has come out of
it. It would seem as if no one
kuew really anything about putting
tho word into practice. In fact,
there has not yet come to the front
hero any person who shows any
understanding as to how political
organization is to be obtained and
worked. Thercforo, if you will per
mit, I shall have my say on the
matter, and will give out my sugges
tions, with the hopes not that they
will bo follow'cd, and acted upon -but
that they will induce other
suggestions, from the discussion of
which may result a definite, practi
cal, popular plan to begin action
with, for it is "none too soon" to
have one. A. MATtQur.s.
AN UNAMBITIOUS CYNIC.
EniTon Bulletin': I feel ready
to burst. The two days waiting
since I announced my inclination
and intention to blow off steam has
been almost unendurable., Tho
very announcement, since I saw it
in print, has been like a great blaz
ing lire, generating steam at a
dangerously rapid rate. If I could
have found an old stump of a tree
last night, I would have perched
myself on top of it, and shouted so
that you could have heard mo all
the way to Diamond Head. Now
that the opportunity for letting out
steam has arrived 1 feel so exhausted
by the gigantic exertions to keep it
in until proper time that I am unable
to operate the safety-valve efficiently.
That is, I am hardly fit for "action,"
and past the stage of "waiting for
Indeed, it is quite clear that
neither of those gentlemen "Ac
tion" and "AVailing for Action"
considers mc a fit and proper person
to he entrusted with a ministerial
portfolio, or my obscure name would
have appeared on one or other of
those honorable lists. I don't know
what to think about it. I believe it
to be a downright intentional insult.
Well, if the' ignore mc and my
claims I don't sec why I should
ignore myself. I confess to be with
out brains, ability, and experience.
But what of that? These deficien
cies arc no barrier to the attainment
of the highest positions in this de
mocratic kingdom. I vould like to
be in the Cabinet. I don't care
much for the honor and less for the
duties, but I should be delighted to
get hold of the salary for a couple
or years. A written guarantee that
nothing would be required of mc but
drawing pay would be an irresist
ible inducement to declare myself
"wuhn " right away.
As to the duties of olllcc I only
half believe that I might rub
through. Everybody says that the
work of a cabinet Minister in tins
country is as easy as rolling from a
log. But 1 detect a weak spot in
everybody's testimony, in the fact
that everybody lias not yet had
practical experience. The new
chum thinks it an easy thing to
follow a plough, or wield an axe, or
navigate n wagon. Yet I have often
noticed that when new chum gets
hold of the plough tail, or is placed
with an axe in his hand beside a six
foot tree, or is given in charge of
the steering gear behind a pair of
horses, he cuts an awkward figure
and makes a mess of the whole busi
ness. I suspect "everybody" would
shape about the same in the work of
government. Never mind, I feel as
if $G,000 a year and a few odd pick
ings will enable me to overcome my
present misgivings on this score
when the proper time arrives, and
the unanhnous, or rather maynani
mous, voice of the nation calls me
to the front !
Hold on ! I had forgotten the
newspapers a very serious matter
to overlook. This new recollection
completely lcvcrses the course of
my inclinations. I am not a bit
"willin ' now am no longer a can
didate. I give up salary, pickings,
gold lace coat, knighthood, and all.
I won't have any of them not even
by unanimous entreaty, so long as
the miserable, shallow-pated, voci
ferous, mountebank newspapers are
allowed to hava their swing. I am
very thin-skinned, with tender llesh
underneath, and I am sure tho
papers would pierce me nil over
except, perhaps, the skull, tho only
hard spot in my entire being. If I
did badly tho papers would abuse,
anathematise, and violently assail
mc with storm of howls and hisses.
If I did superlatively well tho same
fate would overtake mc. There is
no way of cscapo from these vora
cious fiends. They blaze away
indiscriminately at everything that
comes along outside of, their own
snug little arrangemont. Some
people say this is tho very best
thing to make a man popular. I
shouldn't wonder. The present
Prime Minister furnishes a striking
example. But I am sure such treat
ment would not agrec'with my con
stitution; one day would break mo
all up. So I have decided, on
second thought, to consider myself
as others consider me ineligible for
cabinet purposes. Therefore I am
now in a position, as a disinterested
paity, to talk about cabinet compo
sition witli a measure of calmness.
But I have taken so much space to
reach this point that 1 must screw
down a day longer, for fear of being
rejected on the ground of being too
