A notice has been ibsucd by the
Tax Collector of Honolulu giving
the interesting information that the
collection of taxes would be com
menced at his olllce in Knpuaiwa
Hale, Government Building, on the
2nd inst., and would continue until
the 15th day of December ; and also
"that all persons liable to taxation
must make payment of the same to
him on or before the 15th day of
December, or they will be subject to
an additional ten per cent, and any
legal costs that may accrue." The
notification suggests rather omin
ously a course of procedure similar
to the water-rates cinbroglio of a
few weeks ago. If the taxation
notice is to be understood as it
reads, it simply means that the tax
payers are to be the obsequious and
obedient servants of the Iordby
coterie, composing the Hawaiian
Government. It may remind the
public of an incident recorded in
sacred history when every man was
obliged to report himself at head
quarters to give due account of his
tax-bearing capacity. Considering
the unlimited prerogatives of the
mighty men at the head of this
nation, it is almost surprising to
find them condescend to give any
warning whatever to the citizens
that they did not lie back in their
chairs of state, until after the 15th
December had passed, and then
swoop down with)costs, commissions
and every other possible exaction,
upon all audacious delinquents.
"With Mr. Geo. II. Luce, Tax Col
lector, we have no personal quarrel.
He is doubtless a faithful public
servant, attending to his duties, ac
cording to his instructions. Our
protest is against despotism, in this,
as in every fashion in which it pre
sents itself. If the oflicial notice
means what it says, the tax-payers
are not to be favored with the uni
versally recognized rules of proce
dure by which men paying and re
ceiving money are governed. No
intimation is given that the humble
tax-payers are to be notified of their
respective indebtedness to the
powers that be. It is to be taken
for granted; of course, that the citi
zens resorting to Kapuaiwa Hale,
between the '2nd November and tho
loth December, will be kindly in
formed of how their accounts stand
with their national landlords. It
would be no more than bare cour
tesy on the part of Government
officials to wait upon the tax-payers
with their bills, when, on default of
payment, it would be time enough
to proclaim ten per cent, pains and
penalties. The prerogative of the
public officer and the duties of the
private citizen arc, in the present
age, pretty fully understood; and
the rules of civilized intercourse arc
as, surely binding upon the one
party as the other. No doubt the
'citizens will obey the mandate of
their rulers and present themselves
in due order nt the " receipt of
custom " within the dates specified.
Another letter appears from Mr.
John Kidwcll to-day. Wo do not
endorse bis views, ,nny more tlinn
those of pther correspondents, ex- (
cegt when wo say so. As n taxpayer I
and a professedly practical man in
tho matter of which ho writes, ho
i.- -:!, ..,.o s .,,, s.nn-
tial newspaper for the expression of
bis opinions. The article of the
Frets this morning, attempting to
represent this pnpor ns n dctrnclor
of Mr. Jaeger, is beneath contempt.
Nobody who can produce evidences
of being n successful or respectable
journalist can over have written the
article in question. The object of jts
writer's spite can presents proofs of
his professional standing covering
eleven years, and challenge compari
son therewith of any journalistic
credentials his traduber may possess.
"When he accepts this challenge, it
will be time enough for him to talk
of "an editor who should have
learned his business."
Editoii Bulletin: It soems an
exceedingly unjust act that the
Myrtle Boat Club be ruled out of
the races on His Majesty's birthday,
simply because they do not choose
to belong (o an association which
seems to be not only distasteful to
themselves, but as near as I can
learn to nearly all boating men,
owing to an extremely unjust defini
tion of senior and junior crews,
adopted by the Association, and
also for the apparent attempt of one
club to control the whole affair.
The 10th hns been for many years
past a national holiday and cele
brated by a regatta in which the
public have always taken more or
less interest. Now, why should a
few undertake to control, according
to their own prejudice, the events
of this daj in which the whole pub
lic are interested. The Myrtle Boat
Club, composed mostly of mere
boys, have through sheer pluck,
hard work, and energy, come
bravely to the front as victors in tho
last two regattas held here, in spite
of the odds against them. And to
deny their partaking in a public re
gatta on a public holiday, is not
only an injustice to them but to the
public generally, who certainly take
a great interest in this healthy and
manly sport. Give the boys fair
play. They have gone to great ex
pense and trouble getting ready for
the coming lGth, and no doubt, if
allowed to come on the field, will
make short work of their rivals.
THAT GOVERNMENT NURSERY.
Editor TJullktin: The poor fel
low who answers to the fairy-like
name of "Carl 'Willing" is unable
to speak or write six words of .hng
lish, in sequence ; until his freedom
was purchased by the Government
lie was a contract laborer, employed
on the plantation of Messrs. Bishop
and Isenberg, on the same level as
the other coolies who come from
China ; with him I have nothing to
do, but that worse fool than Dog
berry who should insist on having
himself wiitten down two asses, that
is lnnsqueiading over the name of
the above mentioned poor chap,
calls for a few further remarks.
Had he been content to profit by my
well-meant advice in a former letter
I should have left him there, but he
squirms so to such mild medicine
that I sec it -will be necessary to
throw him into spasms before he
will gain any benefit.
Some two years ago I told this
person that he was wasting time and
money on collecting together a lot
of plants that would be quite woith
lcss to the Government as to forest
planting, and he even claimed to
know as much himself, but, said he,
I have given orders to these laborers
to plant any and all seeds they can
pick up, so as to have something to
show those country legislators in
case the' should come out here, or
else we shall never get another ap
propriation. Well, the result is
that nearly twenty thousand dollars
(20,000) have been expended and
there is not one tree that lias any
value, except for fire wood, to show
for the amount. Another thing 1
wish to call your attention to is,
that up to the end of tho last fiscal
term many hundreds of dollars of
public money was charged to the
account of purchase of plants, and
if the person in charge had not been
so careful to not turn in the invoice
papers to the Interior Department,
I doubt not that I could show that
the plants so imported and charged,
were never delivered to the Govern
ment. This is of public interest,
and therefore open to discussion.
But this man seems to think he
has a pull on the Government, on
the ground, as he claims, of having
loaned it a certain sum of some
other person's money at an exorbi
tant and illegal rate of intcicst, thus
playing Sliylock to their necessity.
By the way, should the Minister of
the Interior desire to know the
names of the people who claim to
have bought plants from the Gov
ernment nursery I shall have plea
sure in giving them to him and .1
shall not confine myself to two
names either, but it will readily be
seen that I cannot bring private
people into a newspaper, unless I
find them there.
