FItlDAY, JAN. 8, 1880.
On New Year's Day the Adver
tiser had nn article referring to the
overhauling begun near the cloe
of the year, to be conducted through
out all the Government departments.
It stated that it was not intended to
conduct the investigation wholly by
olllcers of the Government, but,
"Competent men from the outside
will be invited to take part in the
investigation, so that it may be at
once exhaustive and impaitial, and
therefore satisfactory to the country
nt large." Our contemporary takes
pains to show that it is very proper
to have what it calls a stock-taking
performed by the Government, after
the manner of merchants. Still,
with a salaried Auditor-General at
tached to the national concern, 'ome
further explanation would seem to
be requited to give assurance that
the sweeping investigation promised
and under way has not some ulterior
motive at back. As to the satisfaction
to be given "the country nt large,"
it would not be amiss to give the
uainei of the outside expeits called
in, before assuming that everything
was so undoubtedly aboveboard and
straightforward. What does "from
the outside" mean? This is an im
portant question, for dependents
sustained by promises are apt to be
' more servile than partisans faring
on substantial pabulum at the public
crib. Let the Government, if it
desire- a thorough examination of
the books, invito the Chamber of
Commerce to appoint a committee
of recognized i'mancial experts, to
act with the investigators appointed
by the Ministers. Then it might
fairly be expected that the "country
at large" would have confidence in
The Advertiser takes occasion to
impugn the integrity of the Com
mittee of Finance in the last Legis
lature. It is easier to do o than to
explain away on behalf of .the Gov
ernment tho revelations made by
that committee. This i-, besides,
one of the many implied admissions
made during and since the session,
that the Government did not enjoy
the confidence of the Legislature,
for the report of the Finance Com
mittee only failed of adoption by the
votes of the Ministers themselves.
ANOTHER PACIFIC STEAMSHIP
The Canadian Gazette, published
in London, England, recently re
marked that Sir John Macdonald,
while there, would consider the sub
ject of the British traus-continenlal
mails to Australia and Asia, via
the Canadian Pacific Railway, and
said it was rumored that Sir John
would try and induce the British
Government to divide the Indian
mail subsidy with the Canadian
Pacific Railway and the Allan Steam
ship Line, and the Peninsular fc
Oriental Company, which at present
receives the total subsidy of three
hundred and fifty thousand pounds.
The presumption is that the Allans
will do the Atlantic portion to the
Pacific, nnd the Peninsular & Ori
ental Company the Pacific to tho
Australian Colonics and the Indies.
The Canadian Gazette says, "if
the Canadian route to the Kast is to
become a reality, it will not be per
missible to lose in the passage
across the Atlantic tho time gained
by speedier transit across the conti
nent," which means that the Allans
must put on faster steamers than
are now on their line. It will bo a
matter of great interest to this king
dom in the event of this sclicmo
goiugoii to Know whether Hono
lulu will 1)0 touched by the line,
AN INDECENT RESORT.
"Patriotism is the last refuge of n
scoundrel," is one of Dr. Johnson's
famous payings. Tho Government
party of Hawaii arc making the
allied virtue of loyalty their last
ditch. That means, simply, that
they are making the throne a barri
cade against the people who aic
tired of the rule of the King's
Ministers, and taking constitutional
means of bringing it to a termina
tion. Without provocation they arc
persistently dragging the sovereign
into the discussion of the Ministry's
record. In other constitutional
monai chics it is regarded as in the
highest degree reprehensible to in
troduce the nninc of the bovcrcign
in political discussions, inside or
outside of the legislature, for tho
purpose of influencing party issues.
The course of the Ministerial party
in this kingdom, in assuming a
monopoly of devotion to the throne,
is neither more nor less than inde
cent, and that is all that need be
said about it.
