REFORM NOT CROAKING.
It is only u very commonplace ex
pression to bay that the duty lying
nearest to every man who is con
scious of existing public wrongs, is
to set to work to put them light.
One effective worker in the direction
of reform and improvement is of
positive value to a community, while
the howling demagogue who has an
endless list of grievances at his
tongue's end is only negative in
value. The one finds out what is to
be done, throws off his coat and
goes to work; the other is more
than satisfied to lie down alongside
of the very work that he denounces
everybody but himself for not doing.
It is to the workers, not to the com
plainers and croakers, that we owe
all of the good that is in the world.
If it v ere any proof of superior in
telligence to be able to disclaim
against this, that and tho other evil,
there would be more evidences of
knowledge going to waste than there
arc of the same article being utilized.
Whenever any enterprise is to be
pushed forward, the person most
likely to " go at it hammer and
tongs " is the man appointed by its
promoters, while the services of the
biilliant talker who determined to
wake up next morning and find him
self famou, arc appreciated by
being left unclaimed and unrewarded.
We hear a vast deal from day to
day about political and social
abuses, and the more we hear on
these 'matters, the more evident
does it become that there is. to use
the highland shepherd phrase.
" much cry and little wool." The
fact is that the worst abuses com
plained of are irremediable simply
because those who have the pres
criptions at their own disposal, in
stead of utilizing the same, expend
their energies in nervous apprehen
sion of the possible consequences of
their taking the lirst step. That a
conflict of races is impending in
this Kingdom is but too visible to
lequirc any faculty of prescience to
assert. Uetween the Caucasian, or
a white man, on the one hand, and
the Mongolian on the other, there
can, as the tastes and dispositions
of the respective races lead them,
be no amalgamation, and no com
munity of interest. Every white
man sees and feels that his race in
this Kingdom is to do or die, and
unless somebody executes some
miraculous feat of reform, his race
must soou become extinct. Hut out
of eveiy hundred of the white
population who groan over their
' prospective calamities, it is probably
safe to say, 011 a very charitable es
timate, that twenty-five over put
themselves to either expense or in
convenience to avert the impendinc
ruin at which they profess to be so
seriously alarmed. If tho white
man is so earnestly desiiousof hold
. iug his ground as every one pro
fesses to be, theie is nothing that
can bo more conducive to self-preservation
than for everyone to per
form tho full measure of his duty
in his own sphere. The action im
mediately required is on the line of
the sentiment that the race "expects
every man to do his duty," And
whoever fails to do so should be
summarily ostracised. So much
for the question of races. Another
" great public interest confronting the
'people of the Kingdom and about
which there is an interminable
quantity of croaking, but no action,
is constitutional reform. This will
bo elfected when wordy denuncia
tions of existing defects give place
to united, ilcterminetl notion in tho

direction of doing what needs to be
done. Every constitutional lcforni
in the past history of nations was
wrung from dominant factions by
persons having definite objects in
view and who did not hesitate to
take the necessary steps towaids
effecting their purposes. The scat
tered forces of public sentiment
crystallized into specific demands
that wrung Magna Charta from King
John, that crushed the " divine
right of kings" heresy of the
Stuarts, that gave England her He
form Bills, and swept aw ay her op
pressive Corn Laws, and that gave
America her Independence. But
although these icsults were achieved
partly with the aid of mail-clad
knights and armed forces, which
were the main lcsources of reform
ers in past days ; happily for us in
this age of the world, moral suasion
has superseded military argument,
and what was won then by hard
fighting can be gained by peaceable
means now. And if constitutional
reforms for Hawaii are ever to be
brought about, they must conic,
not from idle croakings, but from a
well-formulated programme of how
to do it. Until such a programme
is prepared and placed in the hands
of competent leaders, there is little
chance of the political horizon being
irradiated with the light of the
twin stars of liberty, a free parlia
ment and a responsible administra
tion. THE POLICE.
Editoii Bui.i.r.Tix : A few words
only. I coincide with the views ex
pressed by "Observer" in this
morning's F. C. A., when he 111 ges
that the police should be appor
tioned beats, day and night, and
made to patrol them. He might
have added that it is easier for our
police to catch presumptive opium
custodians and smokers, for the
sake of divided penalties, than it is
for them to arrest a highwayman
who commits a deptedation under
the gaslight. Police leform, I say.

Editok Bui.u:tin: Oft course
now 1 learn from yolir editorial of
yestculay and from ceitain "learned
pundits" that it is "unconstitu
tional" to try and stop chicken
stealing the way 1 suggested in a
former letter. 1 give it up and as I
h ave very few chickens left to steal
I have lost interest in the subject.
JJ'dt what I do like is, that the com
munity are to suffer because, for
sooth, it is supposed to be constitu
tional to stop China or Portuguese
pcallers, now and then, and examine
their packs or baskets. You might
find, "don't you know?" opium, and
that would pay the police belter than
discovciiii" some of our poor fowls,
now lost to sight but to memory
I don't think the police were bo
very particular as to the "constitu
tionality' of what they did lately,
when they broke into a Chinese
Club house and disturbed u few
gentlemen at their little game. But
it makes some difference, peihaps,
as to the nationalities of the par
ties, and as they, the Chinese, do
not appear to be very particular
themselves as to what they do to
others, it does seem rich that we
should be so very careful not to
break the law, in trying to protect
our property against them.
Several persons have told me that
they think my idea was rather a
good one, but of course they were
ignorant that wo might be doing a
wrong to these poor pullers and if
we had a little more law, and con
stitution, etc., we could do without
the police. "Economy is wealth,"
and chickens don't count. Sonic
thing was said about chicken-stealing
being common in years past.
I say it is not within the memory
of the oldest inhabitant for such
wholesale robbery of fowls as lately
practised ; and ns they are stolen
probably to sell, some one must
buy them. Who? The hotels may;
but cheap China hash shops don't
furnish poultry to their boarders nt
81.50 per week. So it is probably
ptivate parties who purchase. Within
the last two months 1 think at least
-'(JO to JIOO fowls have been stolen,
and it is tune it was put a stop to.

THE PORTUGUESE PAPER.
When our friend and neighbor,
0 Lnao Ilmoaiimw, started in the
journalistic field, it announced that
it would keep out of politics entirely,
or if it did go into politics, they
would only be such as would inter
est the Portuguese colony. Up to
the picsent, the Luso has kept its
woul, but in the last number, which
is just out, we notice an article
which teems to bo a lirst move to
wards tho sliding forbidden stages,
It leproduces a letter wiitten by
"Civitas" in last Gazette, in which
foreigners arc tuged to get natural-
izotl, in order to weigh in the politi
cal balanco of the country ; and tho
lcasons for this leproductlon are
thus presented: "The Luso finds
this letter wot thy of attention and
specially applicable to the Portu
guese colony. If the Portuguese
residents wish in future to tnkc part
in the political life of the country,
it is necessary that they should have
the right of voting, and of sending
to the Parliament 'some representa
tives of their own as tho different
other nationalities here strive to do."
This is, however, sound advice, and
if the constantly growing influence
and authority of the Luso did de
cide a number of Portuguese to be
come voters, this would constitute
quite a factor, and a new powei in
the midit of the ptcscnt political
parties ; and the one who would ob
tain the help of tho Portuguese,
would have a greater chance of
tipping the balance on its side. Out
side of this point this last number
of the Luso is remarkably good, and
the increasing quantity of original
news and correspondence shows that
the readers of that paper take
pleasure in helping it and in trail s
mittting to it all The information of
interest to the Portuguese colony.
With such an encouragement, Mr.
Marques will probably not hesitate
to bring out his paper oftencr,
especially as so much of its present
space is taken" up by the advertise

Circumstances compel us to get
out another summary for the foreign
mails to-day, only a week since the
last previous one. Owing to the
extra strain upon both literary and
mechanical staffs for this purpose,
also to the fact that several mem
bers of both desire to join their com

companies, no paper will be issued
from this ollicc to-morrow. Sup
plies of Hie summary will be de
posited at the news agencies of
Messrs. Oats and Thrum, for the
convenience of our patrons desiring
them for the outgoing mails.
An article- appeared in the Adver
tiser of last week from Ilonokaa,
headed "Accidental death! Political
Suicide!!" Under that sensational
heading it stated that Mr. Kinney
was going to put himself up as a
candidate for the district of Ilama
kua. It seems to be a foregone con
clusion thafi none but the Government
candidate oan succeed in Ilamakua,
but if public feeling does not alter
very much from what it is at pres
ent, the Aa'vcrliscr will witness the
demise (politically) of that distin
guished per son at the coming elec

dently believes- in the old adage,
"that a hole will last longer than a
patch," as the gulch washed through
the Government road last July is
still unrepaired, when $120 would fix
