To Die Inspectors of Election in the sei"
ft at Districts of the Kingdom:
Inquiries having been made whether
persons who nrc exempt from the pay
ment of personal taxes by reason of be.
lng clergymen, teachers, pupils In High
Schools, firemen, &c, or by reason of
being over the ngc of Blxty years or
who.se taxes have been excused by the
Assessor on account of infirmity or
poverty, arc allowed by law to vole at
the Election for Ucpicscnlntivcs.
It la my opinion that nil audi potions
aio entitled to vote. The Tax Collector
should issue to each such person u tux
receipt with the words "Qualified to
Vote " upon it, which he must sign and
in place of the amount of tnxes he must
write " exempt' or "excused." On the
presentation of this Tn Keccipt to the
Inspectors of Election at their sessions
previous to tlio election, thonnme of the
voter must bo put on the list of voters
nud the Hcculpl letuincd to the voter.
At the general Election to be held on
the 3rd February, 18S0, the votes of such
persons must be received, unless chal.
longed for other reasons.

THURSDAY, JAN. 1 1. 188C.
INDEPENDENCE OF THE LEGISLATURE.
The Opposition bcliuvc that the
practice of electing olllce-holdcrs to
the Assembly is, in every way,
destructive of independent, economi
cal and lioncsi administration, and
ought to be slopped. The Minis
ters, governors ami other olllce
holdcrs sitting as Nobles arc quite
as many of that class as it is safe to
have in the law-making body. The
district justices, sheriffs, etc., if lit
and proper men for their positions,
should remain at the places to which
they are appointed and for which
they arc paid, and should not be
allowed to appoint substitutes
generally very unsuitable ones
while they, for months on a stretch,
are in the capital of the country,
servilely legislating in tho interest
of those to whom they owe their ap
pointment and retention of olllce;
ready to vote for any folly or ex
travagance, and especially for higher
salaries, their own included. The
practice is mischievous and demor
alizing, because it is notorious that
many of tho common people, who,
If left according to their preference,
would not favor them, arc afraid to
oppose the district judge, or sheriff,
or assessor, lest thej' may in some
way lie made to suffer for it. For
those petty olllcials soon learn how
to use their influence (1) in their
own favor. They learn also the
value of their services to the higher
powers, and while at times they arc
very useful, they are also danger
ous to their superiors. Those who
have observed such men as Kutilu
kou, Aholo, Nahinu, Kaunamano,
and others of that stripe would not
venture- to say what they would not
hesitate to do, cither openly or
secretly, in tho way of influencing
votes in the election or in the As
sembly. Scorning true independ
ence, which is unprofitable to them,
they demoralize their constituents
and their fellow representatives;
while by their services to the Minis
ters they get such a hold upon, and
one so mercenary to them, that they
are virtually masters of tho situa
tion, bo that those responsible mug
nates sit with closed mouths or else
give encouragement to the shilling
of the Appropriation Dill, and the
passage of laws intended to concen
trate tho little power that is left to
the people in hands from which
there is no chance of its recovery.
Visitors in the House during lost
session often looked ou with pity
nnd contempt for the Premier, see
ing him silting with fingers inter
locked nnd lips compressed, watch
ing liis noisy nnd sclf-confldcnl
masters, not daring lo opposo them,
and thinking probably of what he
would say when they gathered at
noontide around thu salmon and
poi, lo wheedle them. If a subsidy
is wanted by a China or any other
line of steamers, or if an opium,
lottery or any other bill is wanted,
for which money will be used to
"put it through," there is no doubt
as lo the parties to npproaeh, for nrc
(here not several influential Represen
tatives who arc currently believed to
have mote than once shown how much
temptation they cannot withstand?
Jealous are (hey of the huolat, and
yet none the less ready to favor
their private schemes, by pocketing
their own patriotism with the haole's
favors. To prevent any retaliation
on the part of the Ministers for in
solence or tyranny, thce experts in
tho worst phases of politics arc
shrewd enough to keep an eye and
car open toward Hie controlling
quarter of all appointments of indo
les. The most of this demoraliza
tion and other damage comes by the
election of olllce-holdcrs to the
THE GIN POLICY.
A native lima selected ly tho
Government party for a suburban
locality complained to an Opposition
candidate that the Ministerial wages
for lunas consisted wholly of gin.
Said ho: "We are gelling tired of
gin. The Government men got a
large number of natives in that yard
on Punchbowl street, made them
drunk ou gin, and then turned them
out to be arrested and locked up,
while one of them they killed with
gin." The Opposition candidate
replied: "I am glad lo hear you
say you are getting tired of gin.
You have been running after gin too
long, but, now that you are getting
tired of it, I believe that there is
s-oiiic hope for (he native race."
Mr. J. O. Carter wishes us to say
(liatin his eommunication yesterday,
when he spoke of "free of taxes"
bonds of the Government, he should
have said six percent not seven
The New South Wales Govern
ment has resigned, and a Ministry
formed by Sir John Robertson,
leader of the Opposition, is in power.
Judging from the debate on tho
want of confidence motion, it is
dilllcult to see any benefit for tho
colony in the change.
The native military organizations
ate threatened with having " their
noses cut off" at the next session
of the Legislature, if their members
do not support Lilikalaui, one of the
Government candidates for Hono
lulu, who is very unpopular with
the young warriors. Our rulers
may possibly obtain an exemplifica
tion of the historical fact that an
ami' cannot always bo put to base
uses with impunity. It will be in
place for independent canvassers to
advise the militiamen to receive all
threats calmly, pocket all favors
quietly, and vote for the men of
their intelligent choice. They are
safe in doing so under the provi
sions of the ballot.
LETTER FROM THE ATTORNEY
GENERAL. Kwroi: Dum.ktix : Dear Sir, In
a letter of Mr. J. 0. Carter pub
lished in yesterday's Ddixi.tix, that
gentleman alludes to Mr. Oakley's
sad ending, connecting the same
with n debt due him from the Gov
ernment. Mr. Carter is mistaken
about the matter, and would cer
tainty not have mado the statement
had lie known tho facts in the case.
About a year ago or longer Mr.
Oakley's bill wiis referred to me,
and after examination a certain sum
about one hundred and eighteen
dollars stricken off by mo as an
improper charge. The amount of
the bill as allowed was tendered to
Mr. Oakley and would havo been
paid then had he chosen to accept
it. Since his refusal to rectify the
bill, the amount has at all times lain
ready to be paid to him or to his
order, ho having transferred tho
claim to certain of his creditors who
were quite willing to accept the ad
justed bill. For reasons not neces
sary to bo detailed, I declined to
accept the receipt of any one but
Mr. Oakley personally for satisfac
tion of tho debt, or to pay the
amount, except on Mr. Oakley's
own order j for this reason alone the
matter remained unsettled.
AN AI'ICABLE WARNING.
Editoh Buliktix: The Govern
incut nartv arc dolnc rno tho honor of
devoting a great deal of attention to
my person and to the "expose " of
my political lows. 1 am quite proud
of this attention, for it is a sure sign
that they feci their weakness and
are awfully afraid of me, and fur
ther, being abused by the Govern
ment men is a sure thing for increas
ing my popularity. 1 am also happy
for having my political views im
partially discussed, but in what con
cerns the charges that the Govern
ment crowd presume to bring against
me, I will for the present treat them
with the nbsoluto contempt they de
serve. However, if in due time it
becomes necessary for mo (o refute
them, I will not only do it success
fully, but will promise to do it in a
wuy that will make the Government
men feel exceedingly uucomfortnblc.
And as I am known to always keep
my word, the Government men will
do well to beware, for those who live
in glass houses must be cautious
how they throw stones.
