THE FIRST GUN 1
For weeks huge poslois gliuct.1
from the tloatlwnlls, announcing a
political meetiu at the Armory last
night. The notice was footed by
the names of several native politi
cians, supporters of the Government.
Our repoitcr came down town to
i attend the meeting but stiaying into
an auction loom, saw foreign and
native Government politicians, bid
ding on toys, therefore concluded
the meeting was "off," and re
mained in "Vanity Fair." The
Advertiser this morning, however,
gives a lepoit of the political meet
ing, showing that one Mas leally
held, but captuicd without a .stmg
glc by the Opposition. From the
evidently partisan rcpoil of our
contemporary, enough can be gleaned
to show that Messrs. Henry "Water
house, AV. A. Kinney and L. A.
Thurston told the naties some un
pleasant truths, rcgauling the way
in which their country is being mis
governed under the abuse of privilege
and the incubus of an alien capital
ist's dictation. One or two native
members undeilook lo defend the
Government, but the sentiment of
the meeting is revealed by the fact
that an unsuccessful effort was
made by the Government party to
carry a motion for adjournment be
foiethe principal speaking of the
evening had begun. Mr. Achi is
repotted as having nominated the
following ticket for the oitj- dis
trict: Henry "Waterhousc, J. O.
Carter, W". L. Holokahiki and James
Keau. Mr. Waterhousc declined
being a candidate, it appears, and
the ticket w as not submitted to the
meeting. The name of Mr. Keau,
who was one of the most subservient
suppoilcrs of the Government at
last session, although elected on the
independent ticket, would seem to
show that the 'nomination was at
once iriesponsiblc and giatuitous.
On the face of it the Advertiser's
report appears grossly partisan. An
interview with Mr. Kinney proves
his speech is broadly travestied. For
instance, he is made to say that Mr.
Carter is "the greatest enemy of the
planters." "What Mr. Kinney did
say, in that regaul, was that Mr.
Caiter had, by his manful awl suc
cessful effoits in 1870 to secure the
modification of the Labor Act in the
interest of the laborers, incurred the
opposition of the general body of the
planters. Mr. Kinney's reference to
Mr. Carter's financial ability is also
metamorphosed into the utmost
crudity fiom the actual phraseology
employed. He spoke of Mr. Caiter
as having a good head for business,
fit to lead an effective Opposition in
the Legislature, citing his experience
hi keeping both public and private
accounts as proof. Equally untuist
worthy is the paitisan papei's report
in whalitomits. Jur. Jlanaaumoe's
"very saicastio speech, in which ho
ridiculed the lemnrkb of Messrs.
Smith and Thurston," appears to
havo been si double-edged effort, the
Advertiser neglecting to bhow but
one way in which it cut. The bpeaker
declared the Government had conic
to him "only ycslei day." with money
to proem e hib lelireinent fiom the
field, but hu had shut his eyes
("and," interrupted a voice, "grab
bed up tliu money")! It appeals
there is a seiious defection from the
Government party, of several per
sons who are trying to set on foot a
"workingnmn's ticket," and this
complication distresses the ruling
clique considerably, Mr. Kinney
says the performance last evening
was not exactly a capture of a Gov
ernment meeting by the Opposition,
but the collapse of a demonstration
long preparing on behalf of the Gov
ernment, of which the Opposition
tool; duo mlvaiitngc.
HONOR TO WHOM HONOR IS DUE.
Enrron Bulletix : In this morn
ing's issue of the Advertiser 1 see
an announcement under the head
ing of "Christmas Services,"
amongst others that of the Roman
Catholic Cathedral, in which it says
at the opening (he HI. Louis College
Hand will play the liishop's Match,
and the conclusion the Sylvester
Maich. 15t other Dcitrnm and his
colleagues might at least have ghen
a little credit to the gentleman who
compost d and instructed the boys
in both of l" e inarches besides
many others, - ' after two years'
hard work and "it, amount of
expense, brought t St. Louis
College Band up to u.e tandard it
holds to-day. It is the ihst time in
tny experience that I have seen the
name of a man who professes lo
have devoted his services 16 God
to come out as a bandmaster.
Honolulu, Dee. 21, 188.").
Eimon lk't.u:iix: I 11 ml the
following in the Advertiser's at tide
on "The year's Tiade and Taxes:"
"The assessment upon real and per
sonal property in 1885 is less than
cither of the previous years" re
ferring to 1881 and 188 "where
fore it follows, that despite the
steady gtowlh in wealth of the
country, there has been more tax
shirking this last assessment than
formerly." This I believe to be an
enoneous conclusion. In fact, I take
the Advertiser's figures to prove the
reverse. If $2(10,000 was a fair
assessment for 188-1, S2.ri 1,000 is ex
cessive for 188.) ; because the
shrinkage in value of taxable pro
perty during the past year repre
sents a much greater dill'erence than
the assessment figures indicate.
Considerable teal estate that was
readily salable at a, given amount
in July of 1881 was seeking in vain
for purchasers in July of 1885 at
twenty-five percent le-,s. The Ad
vertiser is apparently forgetful of
this fact, crioncously assuming that
allies had steadily increased during
the year. Taxoi.ocy.
Thcie seems to have been no
special observance of the birthday
of the Prince of Wales, who was
born STov. 0, 18-11. The heir-apparent
to the British throne, who is
now M years old, is described to the
Graphic by a New Yoik lady who
lecently met him at social entertain
ments as the most perfect mannered
gentleman in the word, with nothing
condescending or patronizing ap
parent in his bearing, but with in
finite tact, grace, and dignity char
acteii.ing every salutation and
movement. In person he inclines to
be portly, with thick, shott neck,
lound, full face, long body, and
short legs. His eyes are creamy
light, dull, and expressionless, like
those of the Queen and most of her
family. S. 1 Call.
