Krauctf, by Uli: lf5 oil the Minister,
will be practfcaUr amier the opera
tion of an "Independence of Parlia
ment" act. There is perhaps no
nation which has taken bigger strides
in popularizing her constitution
during the past fifteen years than
France has done. Tho French Min
ister evidently means to stand or fall
on the merits of his measures anil
not on the nnmber of mercenary
votes of government employees he
can command in the Chamber of
Deputies. By adopting this policy,
France Vill bo in line with the ad
vanced constitutions of Gieatliritain
ami the United States. In these
countries, public servants acting in
the capacity of legislators is an im
possibility. And it would be a cu
rious comment on their boasted free
institutions if it weic otherwise.
Measures of legislation carried by
the voteo of persons dependant in
any way upon the good graces of
the administration, are. not of a
character to command the lcspcct of
the people. Laws so enacted can
only be regarded as schemes foisted
upon the nation by the operation of
a mild system of bribeiy. It would
be inconsistent with the principles of
human nature to expect a man hold
ing office under the government to
vote in parliament otherwise than in
the interests of his employers.
The Hawaiian Kingdom is sup
posed to be under a free legislature.
The fact is that the free legislatuie
is but a myth. The legislative body
itself is, of course, an entity, but its
independence is a nonentity. Per
sons holding ofllce under govern
ment, form a large pait of the mem
bership of both houses. Govern
ment measures pass the legislature,
and that is as likely to mean that
they aie acceptable to members act
ing under explicit orders which
they dare not disobey, as that they
aie the fruits of the united wisdom
of the representatives of the people.
Legislation, under such circumstan
ces, is no better than a burlesque
and a farce. One of the most con
spicuous defects in the constitution
of the Kingdom is the composition
of its legislature. And no improve
ment in the administiation of its af
fairs need be expected until the
employees of Ministers nre weeded
out of both the House of Nobles
and the House of Representatives.
This reform can be consummated in
a most summary and satisfactory
manner by the electors themselves.
In nominating candidates for next
legislature, all the constituencies
should adopt the French Minister's
method. Let every ollice holder
offering his patriotic services at a
good salary be given to understand
that henceforth machine legislation
cannot be tolerated; and that the
country's representatives must vote
standing in their own shoes, and not
in those supplied by Cabinet Minis
ters, STILL PURSUINC.
The Advertiser is still pursuing,
but failing (o achieve, the purpose
of making tho Bulletin appear in
consistent upon the Chinese ques-
tlon. Throughout, tho course of
this paper thereupon has been clear
and straightforward. Possibly the
Planters' Company may have meant
to deceive the public by the resolu
tion on immigration passed by it.
Vc, however, have more respect for
the intelligence of its majority than
to suspect them of supposing that
the resolution as amended could
either mislead the public, or bear
the ulightcst pressure upon the Gov
ernment in the direction of inducing
a iclaxation of restrictions upon
Chinese immigration. As we re
garded Mr. Davies's amendment to
Mr. Horner's resolution, it was in
tended simply to kill that attempted
pronunciamento. The object was
easier attained in that way, perhaps,
than by laying siege to the resolu
tion in a wordy discussion. It was
a mere question of methods, and
nobody who knows anything about
deliberative assemblies can honestly
quarrel with the mode of action
Our contemporary is, however,
pursuing u in another sense. It is
following the lead of the Bullutik
in opposing Chinese immigration.
The leading article of the Advertiser
this morning is indited upon the lines
of pievioiH discussions of the ques
tion in these columns. Moreover, it
contains, in particular, the identical
arguments used in a Bulletin edito
rial that induced an attack upon us
in that strident style of invective
which always signalizes the retreat
of our contemporary. However, let
that pass. Wc cordially welcome
our contemporary to the ranks of
those who aie making a stand in this
kingdom for civilization.
Sir Richard Sutton, owner of the
defeated yacht, is said to pronounce
the "G" hard in " Gcnesla." He
doubtless pronounced it hard when
she was beaten.
It. is a subject of regretful remark
that the one foreign corps of Hono
lulu cannot be kept up to a respect
able numerical standard, when the
main expenses arc met from the
The Gazette is a little too fast in
charging the Biti.i.utix with showing
the white feather in Police Court ic
ports, upon the strength of a case
lately docketed. "We simply adopted
a course followed in many other
cases, of awaiting the actual trial.
The American Dairyman gives
the cream of civil service principles
when it says, "It is manifestly
common-sense that a public servant
who is sccuro in his position so long
as he is honest and faithful is more
likely to be honest and faithful than
if he is sure of being turned out at
the expiration of tho term for which
he was appointed."
Mr. Cleveland would seem to be
in danger of being wounded in the
house of his fiiends, y some of his
appointees to commanding positions
betraying the confidence reposed in
them as upholders of civil service
leform. An instance of the above
statement is the case of the Collector
of the port of New York, whose
appointment was well spoken of on
account of his reform proclivities,
but who, no sooner than he was
comfortably ensconced in his posi
tion, began to turn out eminently
elllcient odlcors to make room for
his political favorites. At least, that
is the Mugwumpcry of it.
An American paper, in an article
on the late international yacht race,
says, ' The friendly contest between
the Gcncsta and the Puritnn was
most agiecable because it was a con
test of gentlemen." There is a
touchstone in that remark', which,
if bi ought into contact with sporting
affairs in this country would save
them from such disagreeable episodes
as have sometimes characterized
them. Besides, "gentlemanly" in
tho true senso of the term would
preclude tho disgraces of jockeying
and the demoralizations of gambling
in our manly sports.
Commcutlng on the appointment
of a negro who was born a slave, to
the Consulship of Liberia, by Presi
dent Cleveland, who "belongs to
the party which, a few years since,
was absolutely controlled by the
power of slavery," Harper's Week
ly, from which the foregoing quota
tion is made, says, "In view of
such facts, and of all the other signs
around us, it is hopeless and puerile
to insist that nothing is changed,
that our politics nre still those of
1850 and 1856, and to suppose that
intelligent Americans, lovers of
liberty and of fair play, are to be
startled ami controlled by the crj
that we aie still practically fighting

THIS Company, while thanking the
public lor its generous support, nre
still able to furnish first-class teams.
The steady advancement of this Com
pany since its organization, two years
ago. Ins convinced us that persons wlio
drive their own teams not only make
steady competent drivers, but, as n rule,
are not likely to charge more than legal
rales. Any passenger overcharged by
any of our diivcrs will, on application
to our ollice, have the overcharge
piomptly icturncd. The object of the
United Carnage Company is to supply
the public with good teams at legitimate
