" The king can do no wrong" in
England. At least, such is the ac
cepted theory on which the mon
archy of Great Britain stands and
is maintained without the sovereign's
prerogatives clashing with the rights
of the people. The theory in so
many words is manifestly absurd,
but as its meaning is understood, it
forms one of the great bulwarks of
law and order in the nation.
Statute and common laws arc sup
reme, and obedience to the sover
eign is simply obedience to the
laws, inasmuch as the sovcicign is
the personal representative of the
supremacy of these laws. All acts
of government are in the sovereign's
name, but not at his or her dicta
tion. Cabinet ministers arc respon
sible on the one hand to their sover
eign, and on the other to the peo
ple's lcprescntatives, who have the
sole tight to determine who shall
and who shall not exercise minister
ial functions. The principles under
lying these practices were established
after centuries of fierce debate and
not without niairy bloody conflicts.
And whether we look at the consti
tution of Great Britain, the United
States, or any other well-governed
country the same fundamental prin
ciples support them all, and the
difference between monarchy and
republicanism lies mainly in the
forms adopted by different persons
under diversified circumstances, for
carrying them out. The executive
power, whether monarchical or re
publican, exists for the benefit of
the commonwealth, and its indivi
dual members are answerable, in
monarchies, both to sovereign and
subject, and in republics to the citi
zens alone. In the United States,
the Executive, that is the President,
is responsible to the nation who elect
him, for the acts of members of his
cabinet, who hold their appoint
ments from him, and arc, in their
turn, answerable to him for their
conduc.t; but in England, the minis
ters, as stated above, are responsi
ble for all acts of the sovereign, and
hence the maxim that the sovereign
can do no wrong.
The great political want of this
nation is the practical non-responsi
bility of the king's advisers to the
representatives of the people. "Weie
this want supplied, many of the
-abuses justly complained of in the
administration of affairs, could not
exKt. Electors would have the
remedy for mal-practicc, on the part
of its rulers, in their own hands.
It would be practicable to visit
olllcial offenders with Cromwell's
sentence, " Get you gone and give
place to better men." The currency
outrage, for instance, would have
been all but impossible under a well
adjusted system of constitutional
government. It is time for the tax
payers to assert their lights and
make their voices heard in the coun
- sels of the Kingdom. A united,
organized agitation, judiciously but
persistently carried on, will win for
the Kingdom of Hawaii bloodless
' constitutional triumphs that were
gained in the old world and the new
at the mouth of the cannon and the
point of the bayonet.
THE COLONIZATION SCHEME.
By the last mail Mr. Jona. Austin,
solicitor for tho Oahu Colonization
Company (provisional), received a
letter from London, saying there
it, would bo no trouble in floating the
scheme there. We are authorized
to stato tbat tho Company are ready
to receive applications for land by
or on behalf of intending settlers.
Au omission in the prospectus,
which should bo filled in any rovision
that may bo made, is reference to
the peorlos3 climate of this group.
It is generally conceded that a more
equable climate, or one more favor
able to growth, does not exist
anywhere on the globe. This point
shovld be elaborated by meteoro
logical data and records of growth
by practical agriculturists.
"ALL FOR ONE DOLLAR AGAIN."
EirtTOi: Bulletin : In your issue
of the 31st ulto., you publish a let
ter signed by II. B. Bailey, which I
cannot let pas3 unanswered, as it
reflects unjustly on my friend Dow
sett's honesty and manliness.
Mr. Bailey says that Domett
killed a sheep belonging to Mrs.
Helen Alexander. This is quite
untrue one of the party, not Dow
sett, did kill a lamb, as we were
short of grub, and on our coming
down the mountain we called and
advised the lady in question of
having done so, and asked her to
inform us what we were to pay for
it. She left its' to fix the price our
selves and moreover complimented
our spokesman by saying he was
"a ery honest young gentleman."
As to Dowsett running away, as
stated by Mr. Bailey, 1 certainly
didn't see him ; nor did I see the
man Mr. Bailey sent out. I only
saw a very small boy on a diminu
tive pony, and certainly his appear
ance did' not impress me as being
particularly ferocious or likely to
inspire my friend Dowett with

Francisco, Oct. 24ti.
The Burmese Envoy on Oct. 22nd
handed a note to Lord Lyons, the
Biitish Embassador, in which he
stated that he had sent n dispatch to
his Government advising them to
accept arbitration for the settlement
of the dispute with England, and he
was certaiu they would be glad to
restore friendly relations with Great
Britain. The European lcsidents in
Burmah, he said, were perfectly
safe. The people of that country
had no desire to be hostile to Eng
land. The Paris Journal ties Debatu,
commenting on the British expedi
tion against King Theebaw, urges
the French Government to protest
against the British annexation of
From Paris, Oct. 23rd, it is stated
that the Brisson Ministry is now
uncertain about its ability to head a
majority of the new Chamber of
Deputies, as a serious split in the
Republican ranks is threatened.
The Republicans were united to
carry those districts which required
a second ballot in the recent elec
tions, but now each faction insists
mi the adoption of its own pro
gramme. !' " -
A Panama despatcli of Oct. 23rd
says : News may be looked for from
this country at any moment of a
decisive battle between the rebel
Cacores and his followers and the
Government forces. An encounter
is inevitable, unless Caoeres retires
to the interior. A defeat suffered
by the Government would probably
be fatal to its existence, as its re
sources are not sulllcient to organize
another expedition of tho magnitude
of that now in the field. Should
Caceres be badly worsted lie would
not be able to keep the remnant of
his forces together. Commerce is

A NHW INDIAN I'OLICY.
A gentleman who is in a position
to know the conclusion at which the
Picsideut lias arrived on the Indian
question has expressed an opinion
that the main feature in the Indian
policy of the Administration, as it
will be announced to Congress, will
be a recommendation that, theic shall
be a radical change in the methods
of purchasing and issuing provisions
and all other supplies. Almost
every feature of the present system
is disappiovcd by the President.
The President believes that if tho
army is to be expected to pi event
Indian depicdations, the military
authorities should be given power to
assist in removing the causes of
dissatisfaction by providing for the
honest distribution of supplies. This
is the policy which has long been
recommended by Generals Sherman
and Sheiidan and other high military
officers. A searching investigation
of Indian agents' accounts is being
held, and they are in a very bad
