THE MEN FOR THE TIMES.
One of the most prominent ele
ments in General Grant's greatness
was his capacity for going to the
heart of any matter that duly called
him to put right. It was so when he
was required to crush the rebellion ;
also, when the nation was to be
saved from a disastrous fiscal policy,
and on other occasions. That is the
quality that must distinguish the
man or men who will lead this Ha
waiian nation out of the wilderness
of administrative incapacity, extra
vagance, corruption and false pre
tences. Ikfore the country's credit
can be restored, it is necessary that
the reasons for shyness of capitalists
toward Hawaiian securities be under
stood, dealt with and removed. It
will need a good Legislature better
and abler than any that has hitherto
assembled in this kingdom to ac
curately diagnose and effectually
treat the disease of the state. In
countries possessing constitutional
systems affording the largest meas
ure of popular privileges, it is hard
enough to dislodge rulers who have
abused their tenure by taking every
possible base advantage of the ruled.
This difficulty is manifold greater in
tho Hawaiian Kingdom, from the
constitutional disadvantages that
hamper all progress in the promotion
of government for "the greatest good
of the greatest number" of those
governed. Therefore, the approach
ing contest at the polls should not
be a mere struggle between the "ins"
and the "outs," nor isolated issues
between divergent fragments of pub
lic policy. As well now as in the
hazy future may the inevitable and
vital alternative be presented to the
people for decision, whether the
present virtually irresponsible sys
tem of government shall be perpe
tuated, or give way to an order of
things approaching the liberal insti
tutions of the most advanced nations.
RAISING FALSE ISSUES.
The Advertiser distresses itself
overmuch. There is no fear of the
Planters' Company or any other or
ganization opposing the Government
on the ground of its tremendous
efforts to repel the tide of Mongo
lian invasion. The Government had
no stronger support, not to say
stimulus, in declining to comply with
the request of tho planters for more
Chinese last year, than ,it received
from this paper, that really does
'hold this very association the P.
L. & S. Co. up as public exemp
lars" in their efforts to promote the
' sugar industry, the basis of the
country's wealth. While we believe
that some of the planters are in the
fault of favoring more Chinese immi
gration to keep down the price of
labor, still it is apparent that very
few of them would venture to make
.that preference a political issue. At
tho timo the Convention was bitting
last year, tho sugar industry was in
' a desperate condition, and the own
ers of a large proportion of the
plantations saw no relief from ruin
in anything but procuring the very
cheapest possible labor. Portuguese
immigration, ns a sole reliance, was
more expensive than thoy could
stand, and the Government had very
slight hopes of being able to obtain
Japanese. To the planters the ques
tion was one of life and death, and
the whole fabric of tho country's in
dustry and commerce depended up
on their existence. Therefore, while
we then thought and still think that
tho planters were too hasty in ask
iug for even a temporary removal of
tho restrictions upon Chinese immi
gration, it cannot bo said that they
had not a very strong reason for
their action. At the lato session of
the Planters' Company, the repre
sentations of our contemporary to
the contrary notwithstanding, there
was evident a disposition on the part
of the members, with one solitary
exception, to yield the point of
Chinese immigration to overwhelm
ing public opinion. Indeed, the
Vice-President, Mr. Baldwin, while
occupying the chair, advised the as
sociation how to proceed to savo
themselves from being "at the mercy
of the Chinese." Other members
plainly intimated that they were
satisfied with the Government's
policy, as manifested in the immi
gration operations of the year, and
declared they did not want Chinese
if they could get sufficient other
labor. The Advertiser will have to
try again before it succeeds in mis
leading tho country upon the issues
of the coming elections.
" Cairiagc-owncr " makes a mis
take when he places the welfare of
carriages above the comfort of foot
passengers. However, comfortable
crossings for pedestrians could be
maintained without making them
dangerous obstructions to wheeled
trallie. The Honolulu crossings arc
no worse than the streets, in com
parison with what both should bo
under efficient administration.
LETTER FROM MR. DAVIES.
Kmtok Bulletin: The Adver
tiser has recently honored me with a
good deal of attention, and tho
difficulty I find in replying docs not
arise so much from inability to meet
the attack, as from my objection to
tho weapons with which tbc Adver
tiser prefers to fight. When gentle
men address gentlemen, such epithets
as "stupidity" and "whine," and
ill-mannered insinuations as to mo
tives are not generally deemed pro
per forms with which cither to open
or to continue a discussion, and the
Advertiser keeps the floor, after
many a challenge, for the same rea
son that politics in the States arc
often left to those warriors who,
like the Advertiser, are not above
the kind of work required.
I should be sorry to think that
the Advertiser altered the texts of
reports and speeches, in order to fit
its own criticisms, which arc appar
ently prepared beforehand with sim
ple blanks to be filled up for publica
tion. One thing is very clear from a
perusal of the article on "Planters
and Politics" of Oct. 14th, viz., the
relations between the Government
and the Advertiser are not what
they were. Had the Advertiser re
ceived its instructions from the Gov
ernment, it would never have issued
the article in question ; for, if the
Advertiser's article is correct, then
the statements of the Commissioner
of Portugal, the Special Commis
sioner from Japan, the President of
the Board of Immigration, and the
Hawaiian Consul-General at Japan,
are all wrong.
I fear tho close attention which
the Advertiser says the report on
Legislation deserved, has not even
yet been given to it, for it cannot be
possible that the misrepresentations
with which its article of Oct. llth
teems, were written by any gentle
man after he had read the said re
port with an' sort of attention.
If the Advertiser will accurately
state the facts contained in the re
port of the Committee on Legisla
tion, I challenge him to get cither
Signor Canavarro, Mr. lnouye, Mr.
Gulick, or Mr. Gibson, to endorse
his recent article. But to give this
accuracy, ho must not repeat tho
statements and intimations which
appear in his'Oct. 14th article. For
instance, it is not true thnt the re
1 That the official relations of
the Hawaiian with any other Gov
ernment were uncordial.
2 That the present international
status of the Hawaiian Kingdom was
lower than formerly.
3 That the Inspectors of Immi
grants had any judicial power,
1 That the administration of
justice in the minor courts is not as
good as it was.
5 That a Royal Commission was
required to take the minor courts
out of the reach of corrupt political
In reply to the question, Who is
to appoint the Royal Commission, I
would respectfully ask what is a
Royal Commission, if not a Commis
sion appointed by the King through
his Ministers? And if the Planters'
Association asked for such an ap
pointment to be made in such a way,
why docs tho Advertiser make a
covert fling at either King or Cabi
net, as though they had not the con
fidence ot the association in any de
gree? Unquestionably the members of
the Planters' Association dare to
think for themselves j and when they
ask the King to appoint a Commis
sion, it is because they have con
fidence that, if the King approves
the appointment, he will ' nominate
good men, as he has always done to
the Supreme Court. And I do not
bcliove that the Cabinet would ad
vise the appointment of bad men.
Thoy may differ from us as to the
desirability of the investigation, but,
not as to tho necessity of good men,
if any, to investigate.
Tho Advertiser is evidently bit
terly disappointed at the friendly
spirit which the Planters' Associa
tion, in its recent session, manifest
ed toward the Government, showing
clearly that the Government may
trust itself to the goodwill and fair
spirit of tho association, and that the
evident severance of the tics that
formerly existed between the Gov
ernment and the Advertiser has not
been a disadvantage, at any rate to
Tiilo. II. Oavh:s.
THOSE STEPPING STONES AGAIN.
Editor Bulletin : Owners of
carriages are continually complain
ing about the stepping stones pro
jecting above the level of the roads.
Wheels arc getting knocked into all
shapes, axles sprung, tires knocked
on one side in fact it's a wonder tho
carriage wheels arc not completely
wrenched off in turning some of the
corners. Surely such a wholesale
destruction of carriages is too great
a sacrifice for what little benefit the
stones are to foot passengers on a
few wet days. If they cannot be
kept level with the roads they cer
tainly ought to be removed.
