WHY IS IT ?
Among the many inquiries lieaul
every day, but not answered, is one
relating to the now famous contract
laboi circular issued by the Minister
of the Interior and President of the
Board of Immigration, and the posi
tion and functions of the Honorable
A. S. Cleghorn, Inspector-General
of Immigration. The spirit, at
least, of the labor circular was ap
proved by the Bulletin, at the time
it was issued. The steps taken by
the Government to give effect to the
provisions of that document seem,
however, to be somewhat mysterious.
Three separate commissions have al
ready been despatched on missions
of conciliation to plantations from
which distuibances had been re
ported. Where was the Inspector
General of Immigration on each and
all of those occasions? Law is law,
and according to the utterances of
the Minister of the Interior in his
circular of August 11th, the new
arrangements were not intended to
supersede the operation of existing
laws, but rather to. make the course
of true love towards tho contract
laborers run more smoothly. Ac
cording to the statutes of the king
dom, the Honorable A. S. Cleghorn
should have been, ex-officio, at the
head of each of the commissions re
ferred to: Why the Inspector-General
of Immigration was thus left
out in the cold has not yet been ex
plained. The curious feature of the
whole business is that while the com
missioners acting under the Board
of Immigration, at the head of which
presides the able Minister of the In
terior, arc empowered to hear, inves
tigate and dispose of complaints, the
Inspector-General of Immigration is
empowered by the laws of the King
dom to execute precisely the same
functions. It may have been neces
sary for the safety of the kingdom
tliat the Minister of Inlet ior should
have an opportunity of impressing
on the world a due sense of his own
dignity and indispensability. It may
have been, for similar reasons, that
the farcical announcement was made
recently of Mr. Cleghorn's appoint
ment to an office which he has held
for two or three years past.
While the Minister of the Interior
ignores t,he Inspector-General of Im
migration, the proper thing for the
last-named officer will be to ignore
the new commissioners. It is no
far-fetched supposition to contem
plate the possibility of a collision
between the officers whose nutliotity
is derived from the legislature and
the officials created by the fiat of the
Minister of the Interior.
Eunon Bulletin : I have often
noticed that when the would-be re
formers wished to create a sensation
or prejudice against rum, they
would quote some of the few crimes
committed by persons while under
the influence of liquor but take fine
care to never mention one of tho
many crimes committed by persons
in their cool, sober senses. It is
one of the old, old dodges (see article
in Evjininr Bujj.ktik Sept. !)th
headed "Let us reason together,"
iigncd Ileiiry S. Townsend), After
the reader's- imagination is properly
worked up by reading of the crimes,
etc., he is treated to a dessert of
prohibition, and the beautiful work
ing of the prohibition laws in Iowa.
t would kindly ask tho gentleman
to read the following extract taken
ftfrom un editorial in Harper's
TJfieMy, Aug. 1st, a paper he must
and will acknowledge as high author
ity on tho subject: "The temper
nncc question is one of iniDortancc
in Ohio, but the Cincinnati Com-
picrcial-Gazctle, the Commercial
part of which was a Mugwump of
1872, and which is amusingly furi
ous againt the Mugwumps of' 1885,
says in a conciliatory strain, to win
the support of Republican temper
ance voters in Ohio:
" 'The fraud St. John is one of
the half-dozen cranks and hoodlums,
fools and spite-workers and blather
ous lunkheads, who feel that they
arc of importance because their un
scrupulous and unseemly combina
tion defeated Blaine. St. John is
guided by an instinct that is proper
in defending the Copiah murderers.
Blood is thicker than water.'
"This tone will perhaps persuade
ardent temperance men in Ohio that
the Republican party is their best
dependence for the reform which
they seek. But, however that may
be, it is undoubtedly true that the
larger number of strong temperance
voters is attached to that party, and
they will vote with it until prohibi
tion seems to them the chief issue,
and then they will leave it for the
prohibition ranks, because the Re
publican darty will never become a
prohibition party. It may be trust
ed to support a more stringent regu
lation of the traffic than the Demo
cratic party, but nothing more. Its
general policy upon the subject
seems to be justified by the results
of a careful inquiry into the working
of the prohibitory law in Iowa. In
the cities and larger towns it ap
pears that the liquor traffic is openly
or secretly carried on. The whole
number of saloons in twenty-eight
such cities and towns is reported to
bo !)1G, as against 770 before the
law was in operation ; and the in
crease is most decided in the larger
cities. The old revenue from the
sale in such cities is not now re
ceived, of course, although the
number of selling places is greatly
increased. But it is stated that
some local authorities sell licenses
for 'legal drinks' with an under
standing that illegal drinks may be
sold. Naturally the authorities of
the chief cities in the State think
that a license law is preferable in
every way to the prohibition law.
The trouble with a prohibitory
law is that it is of a kind which can
never he enforced against public
sentiment, and the sentiment of
towns and cities is against pro
hibition. Nota Bi:n'i:.
Honolulu, Sept. 19th.
Editor Bulletin : A short time
ago a certain Hawaiian, employed
on a plantation, went to the manager
and represented to him that he was
greatly in need of some money to
buy ciothing for his two little girls,
in order to lit them up for school.
The manager let him have the
money, although he had not yet
earned it. But instead of birying
clothing for his children fie spent
the money for liquor. One Satur
day night he and some of his friends
had a great revel in his own house.
Sunday morning his wife, with her
infant in her arms and ler two little
girls following her, was driven from
home to seek food and shelter from
the drenching rain which was fall
ing, her husband having failed to
provide food for his family, and
having driven them from the house
furnished by his employer.
Yet the law furnishes no help for
this woman or these children. The
man drank the liquor in his own
house, and, so far as known, com
mitted no actual violence against his
wife. He did not violate any law of
the kingdom, and so is not liable to
prosecution. She cannot leave him
without a divorce, and a divorce
was refused her at the last term of
the Circuit Court. Is it not time to
recognize the fact that society has
the right to prevent a man from
drinking what he pleases, even in
his own house?
