Thu Lord's day is tattoo: All
worldly business, amusements and
recreation arc forbidden on that day ;
and whoever shall keep open his
shop, store, wai chouse, or work
shop, or shall do any manner of
labor, business or woik except only
works of necessity and charity, or
be present at any dancing, public
amusement, show or entertainment,
or take part in any game, sport or
play on the Loul's day, shall be

All marshals, shciiffs, constables
and other public officers, shall in

in violation of the provisions of this
chapter, and shall cause tho same to
be carried into effect.
The Lord's day, within the mean
ing of the provisions of this chapter,
is the first day of the week, and in
cludes the time between the mid
night preceding and the midnight
following Slid day.' Hawaiian
A stranger passing through this
city on a Sunday would be puzzled
to decide whether he was in a heathen
or Christian country. It would be
a real surprise to be informed, in
passing through some of the streets,
that the statutes of this kingdom
contain a vei3 stringent Sunday law.
On oilier streets, he would sec that,
whether theie is a Sunday law or
not, there is a general closing up of
places of business. One part of the
business community cordially ob
serves the statutes. Whether this is
from choice or otherwise is nopait
of our business to inquiic. That
many otheis arc oblivious of any ob
ligation to law, human or divine, is
the special fact to which we are now
directing the attention of the public
as well as of the authorities. Two
or three triual arrests for Sunday
labor have of late been made, but
why these anests did not, last Sun
day, for example, reach some scores,
is what the law abiding portion of
the community would like to know.
The principal business houses aic
closed up, while scoies of the smaller
fry arc open, with traffic in full
blast, as on any other day. The
question then aiiscs, is theie one
law for, sav, Maunakea street, and
another for Fort street. Stern facts
answer there is, but tho printed sta
tutes of the kingdom say there is
not. Persons having occasion to
pass through King, Maunakea,
Meek, Beretania, and part of Hotel
stieets on Sundays, see scores of
shops wide open, customers running
out and in, carrying away their pur
chases, and everything going on,
only with ten limes as much upioar,
as on any otlicr day. And all this
'" is in the face of Sunday laws, and
under the inevitable direct obseiva
iff tion of the city police. Those who
respect law and older would like to
know whether petty traders aic
above the laws, or the laws above
them? The first duty of the police
is to know what the laws arc, the
next is to an est, without respect of
persons, any man they find carrying
on business in defiance of thu laws.
Whether the police on the stieets
where Sunday buying and selling is
notoriously common know anything
about the laws, or whether they nre
too soft or too well-paid for winking
at lawlessness, is probably not as
certainable ;, but no one with a pair
of eyes can pass through the streets
above named on Sumlsvys without
observing that to all intents and puiO
Jposes, the police, for at least one
,sday in the week, is a dead institu
'lion. Twenty or thirty figure heads,
stood on poles, at intervals, would
about equally useful, and very
much cheaper. It is nothing more
nor less than a builesqucon gov
ernment that lawlessness should bo
lampant In one-third of tho city,
while the most useful and important
section of tho inhabitants hold them
selves amenable to civil, social and
moral obligations. That poition of
tho population who ignoic the ics
trictions of civilized government, aic
in desperate need of being brought
face to face with the requirements of
law and order. A few aricsts and
lines will impress these people with
some sense of respect for the king
and the laws of the country. And
if the authoiilics are incapable of
making arrangements for a series of
Monday morning lessons in the
Police Court, there is but one alter
native left to those of our citizens
who attach any importance to the
moral elevation of the country, "cither
to rise as one man and grapple with
this mailer, or lo sit idly by and sec
their institutions submerged by a
rapidly advancing tide of the foulest
Perhaps the opinion of London
Life is the right one, when it says,
" If Lord Wolselcy failed in his mis
sion to loliove Gordon because of
being sent out ' too late,' he is more
to be sympathized witli than
England has had a good deal of
agitation for " peasant proprietary"
of late years. Yet in Colchester
county, lately, thirty-eight small
plots of laud weic offered for sale
on very favoiablc terms, twenty per
cent down and the balance extend
ing over four years, and not a bid
was offered. Peihaps the peasants
did not have the twenty percent, but
a London paper seems to regard the
incident as proof that " Hodge," as
the fanner is called there, " regards
land as a doubtful investment just
now a conclusion," it adds, "very
cieditablc to Hodge's intelligence."
The strange suit was piosecuted
against the Glasgow Mail lately, of
damages for refusing to print, at the
older of one Alexander Robinson,
an affidavit accusing a judge of cer
tain impiopcr acts in bis official capa
city. Regarding the case, an Eng
lish paper says : ' ' The action was
dismissed, appaiently merely on the
ground that a newspaper could not
be compelled to inseit anything
against its wish. The extreme od
dity of the notion that a man might
have a right to force a journal to
commit a gross libel and contempt
of court does not seem to have
struck the Caledonian ' justicer '
and people still say that the Scotch
have no scnc of humor."
There is no room for the " older
civilization" to ridicule the remnant
of feudalism in the Hawaiian Islands,
when we find that a breeze lately
occuired in Scotland over the claim
to an ancient clan chieftancy. With
out particulars, lefcrcnce is made in
an English paper to the fact that
" quite recently " the Duke of Rich
mond "quietly .assumed the chief
tancy of the clan Gordon, but that
was just a 'leetle too much,' and
the Marquis of Iluntly's indignant
protest soon set that matter right."
If the Scotch had a "Board of
Genealogy" like that of Hawaii,
that little matter of the Gordons
might sooner have been set right.
So rich a country as any of the
British Isles should not be less re
gardless of expense than this poor
little young kingdom.
Fifteen years ago Gen. Prim was
assassinated in Spain. The man
upon whom the weight of suspicion
rested Paul y Angalo fled to South
America with his confederates.
Lately he is reported to have visited
his native country, escaping there
from baiely in time to avoid arrest.
The Government is much chagrined,
to all appearance, over being bafiled
a second time by the assassin ; but,
on the other hand, it is said Paul
declares if he is caught he will mako
revelations implicating in the murder
men nt present in high office. It
often happens that tho fear of having
their own crooked ways exposed,
keeps men of high degree quiescent
when they should bo active and quiet
when they should be thunder-toned.
And tho same cause not infrequently
prevents thoso clothed in " brief au
thority " from doing great mischief.
CHINESE SUPERSEDING THE WHITE
Emron Buu.tm : Seeing that
you aro taking an earnest hand in
trying to arouse tho government and
the public from their slumber in re
gard to tho existing evil of the
Chinese pauper labor question, 1
will, Mr. Editor, with your kind per
mission, state a few facts in regard
to how it affects the trado that 1 be
long to, and work at. 1 am a hotiso
painter, and have a family to sup
port. Theie is, nt tho present time,
plenty of building nnd improvements
going on. One not acquainted with
tho existing evil would naturally
think tliat all one hnd to do would
just 1)0 to go and look for work, and
get all, and more than you wanted,
but, alas, no I Those times have
beautifully passed out of existence.
Title, von get plenty of estimating
to do, but that's about all, for you
aic usually told, "I have. one more
painter's estimate to get, so if you
will call on such a day, the bids will
be opened," and on the day named
you are told, "Oh I I have a
Chinese painter that offers to do the
work for about half of your piicc!"
Now, Mr. Editor, T ask you in the
name of common sense, can a white
man, or any other Christian man,
compete with a Chinaman? I say
most emphatically, no,hc cannot ; liv
ing as they do in filth and pestilence,
huddled together like so many
sheep, disregarding the sanitary
laws of the country, and living on
five or ten cents' woith of lice a
day, and satisfied if he makes fifty
cents per day, just barely enough to
pay for one day's support, for a
Christian family, to say nothing
about the other necessaries of life,
and pay house and shop lcut, water
rates and other taxes ; pay your
honorable debts, and live, as you
ought to live,' a Christian life. I
say no ; you cannot compete with
John Chinaman and do these things.
To show you the distress among
tho white and native paiulers here,
at the present time, Mr Editor, 1
could, at one hour's notice, furnish
several scores, of whom a good
many have wives and families to
support, and of whom a great many
are nearly at a point of starvation,
now standing upon every street
corner, seeking for employment.
Such is the existing evil in regard to
my trade. Yet, in the face of these
facts, a prominent contractor and
builder, who professes to be a white
man and a " Christian," let, on the
29th of September last, a big job of
painting contract to a Chinese
painter. A few weeks prior to that,
a white man who keeps a sporting
place up town, and who also makes
a living of the white and native
population, had his place painted in
side and outside by these " Eastern
Pagans." And still a third white
man, who keeps a store on Fort
street and who also depends on the
whites and natives for a living, let
his painting to a Mongolian
" dauber," and numeious others
well known to ino and others. As a
remedy to the existing evil, these all
should be left to their just fate and
not bo patronized by either whites
or natives ! If, as I said before, and
as others have said before me, we do
not wake up to the impending danger
and starvation that is staring us in
the face, we might as well put out
the auctioneer's Hag and sell what
few traps wo may possess, to enable
us to leave this beautiful country to
the Chinese pauper labor and their
supporters. By inserting the above
in your valuable paper you will
greatly oblige. Yours truly,
