INDEPENDENT NOT NEUTRAL.
By an independent is not meant a
neutral party, as some seem disposed
to regard it. Neutral politicians arc
a useless class in repose, and a
dangerous one in action. CJivon
power they are often atrocious.
True independence will not be
bound by unsatisfactory precedent,
nor wear the galling chains of parti
san tradition, yet it is the soul of
every vital and conscientious party.
Independent men will not sacrifice
principle for comfort, convenience,
or profit. They have clear convic
tions upon public questions, and the
firmness to stand by them. Un
trammelled by considerations of
self-interest apart from the common
welfare, they are in a position to
judge of all matters in debate upon
their merits. Withal, independent
men should have judgment to decide
as to what ib essential and what is
not, -when unity in grand objects
requires that mi nor diversities of
opinion should be harmonized. Such
men are the salt of the body politic,
the. bulwarks of the nation and the
backbone of constitutional govern
ment. To an organization of mate
rial of that sort the Hawaiian King
dom must look for the establishment
of order, precision, straightforward
ness and conscientiousness in the
administration of affairs.
Capt. John Paty, who commanded
tho exploring expedition of 18.j7,
the account of which we republished
the other day, was the father of Mr.
Paty the banker, not the latter him
self, as we inadvertently stated.
Jt is nothing less than an outrage
upon the public to allow horses to
be hitched so as to obstruct the side
walks. Wc have spoken of this
matter repeatedly, and it is time the
police took tho nuisance in hand.
In to-day's issue is given an ab
stract of General Gordon's journals,
from the London Weekly Times.
Those records are among the most
unique in all military annals, and of
course have created a great sensa
tion in England. The article re
ferred to contains many striking
passages from the journals and a
general summary of their contents.
As affording a glimpse of the work
ings of the Hero of Khartoum's re
markable mind, it is intensely
interesting reading, that must pro
voke an appetite for the complete
Editou Bui.utix: "When people
talk and write on matters of which
they have no practical knowledge,
thev are liable to make mistakes
mistakes not always perceptible to
the general public, but conspicuous
as day-light to those of practical
experience in the matter talked or
written about. Your morning con
temporary has a short article about
raising vegetables, evidently written
by a person without practical knowl
edge of tho subject. Proof of this
is found in tho assertion that "it
pays." True, one might reasona
bly infer from tho price of vege
tables that "it pays," but as a
matter of fact it does not pay, a
fundamental obstacle to which is the
price of land. Even the industrious
Chinaman docs not nlways make it
pay. Dozens of Chinamen within a
mile or two of Honolulu have ceased
vegetable-raising during tho past
year, because it does not pay. If a
Chinaman who works all day and a
Jinlf of the night, awl lives on
seventy cents a week, cannot make
it pay, h.ow can a whito man or a
native Hawaiian whose habits of
life conform to western civilization
make it pay? Never, so long na he
has to pay SfiO and upwards per
acre yearly ground rent.
A QUEER ARCUMENT.
EniTou Ui:m.i:tin: Tho Adverti
ser's argument that "the condition
of Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese,
German and Scandinavian laborers
was improved by coming to this
country under contract," for "if
this had not been the case tho labor
ers would not have emigrated, " is
weaker that might have been ex
pected in the editorial columns of
"a great newspaper." That tho con
dition of these peoplu has been im
proved as staled is aside from my
purpose to question. But the fact
of people's emigrating is by no
means conclusive proof that emigra
tion improves their condition. Un
doubtedly, a desire for improvement
mingled with hope of fulfilment, is
the main cause which incites the
emigrant to leave his native land,
but not unfrequcnlly his hopes and
desires arc disappointed, and he dis
covers the "improvement" to be
of a backward nature. Over a dozen
years ago, I, along with six others,
was making good wages at placer
gold-mining, and with good pros
pects. Exciting news of South
African diamond fields reached us.
"We forthwith held a council, and
unanimously agreed that wc should
improve our condition by emigrating.
Eight months later we held a second
council to consider the best means
of emigrating from the diamond
fields, and found it extremely difll
cult to come to any decision what
soever ; for wo had neither money
nor diamonds, and an unconquerable
suspicion of starvation approaching.
The fact that wc had emigrated from
gold, dazzled with the hope of find
ing diamonds, was no manner of
proof to us that we had improved
our condition. Indeed, the emigra
tion act was unanimously interpreted
by us to siguify that Ave were fools.
