It Is my opinion that nil Mich peisons

should Usilo lo each such peison u ln
leceipl Willi the words "Qualified to
Vole" upon it, which he must sign and
in place of the umuunt of luxe he must
write " exempt" or "excused." On the
presentation of this Tn Receipt to the
luopcctois of Election at their sesions
previous to the election, the name of the

At the general Election lo ho held on

ISSUES OF THE HOUR.
Order, method and precision in
public affairs arc great wants of this
kingdom. It did not require any
very keen perception to observe, at
the last session of the Legislature,
that the Assembly was in an undis
ciplined and confused slate from
first to last. There was a manifest
absence of the controlling guidance
of master minds. Upon the side of
the Ministry there was a definite
and settled policy upon .scarcely any
important matter of state. No higher
motive than the exigencies of the
hour seemed to inlluencc Ministerial
- conduct. Any sudden danger to
the tenure of the Cabinet was made
sufllcicut occasion for a shifting of
ground. Outside breezes in some
cases fortunately for the country
frequently produced a speedy tack
ing of ship. As a consequence
vacillation marked the course of
legislative action so far as it was
controlled by the GoTcrnmcnt, and
ofton, also, by the Opposition. Tt
should be the aim of every patriotic
citizen, at this opportunity of a
general election,' to secure a Lcgis-
' lative Assembly marked by intelli
gence and wisdom, while possessing
a harmonious majority pledged to
both functional and organic reforms,
so far as such may be practicable to
accomplish or promote, in accord
ance with the dictates of experieiitfc.
A DASTARDLY SCHEME.
The Government parly's scheme
of utilizing the military establish
ment of the kipgdom for partisan
service is a deliberate attempt to
subvert the freedom of the people.
It must be opposed;" ihqh by inch,
and defeated, orlwnihm citizen
ship will be a thing to be cast off
with loathing by every man having
a spark of independence in his spirit.
If the scheme be not thwarted be
fore the elections, then the nation as
one man should protest against being
governed by the ballots, any moro
than by the bayonets, of a soldiery
capable of being driven to the polls,
liko slaves, to stippoil a Ministry
that canuot stand upon their merits
as administrators of affairs. What
other constitutional system in the
world can furnish the spectacle of
soldiers being paraded to receive
orders how they shall discharge civil
duties and privileges?. Those re
sponsible for this state of affairs are
working to wreck the independence
Of the country, which wis recognizee!
by tho United States, England and
France in consideration of the king
dom's internal affairs being con
ducted according to modcrnly ac
cepted principles of popular free
dom. This intimation implies no
idle threat, but is made with the
knowledge that the present trend of
Hawaiian government, is not wholly
escaping the olllcial cognizance of
the great Powers named.
In reference to the matter upon
which Mr. Carter and the Attorney
General have come to issue, we have
received a statement of the matter,
prepared by the late Mr. Oakley's
attorney, which will probably be
published in this paper lo-tnorrow.
THE ADVERTISER CONTRADICTED.
Kmioit Uuu.utin: In the 1'aci
fic Cotinncrcial Advertiser of this
morning, I was charged with abusing
the King. The charge is wholly un
true. There was nothing said by
me at the meeting that could by
any fair-minded person be construed
into abuse of His Majesty.
And whoever wrote the report in
the J V. A. told a deliberate and

Knnoi: Hu.i,i:tin: Your local in

Young landed on these islands 00

and how he landed here? This in

LETTER FROM MR. J. 0. CARTER.
F.imou ltui.i.LTix: The writer for
lite Advertiser is to the fore again
this morning and treats me less
fairly than before The main points
in his article arc based upon an
en or which I made, and corrected
at the earliest moment possible.
Let me ask your readers as men
what is the quality of honor or
sense of fair play that a writer pos
sesses who can take advantage of a
slip of the pen which I made and
corrected? Surely this is not the
kind of a man who shall draw lines
for my conduct. Upon the matter
of bonds unpaid at maturity the
Advertiser writer says:
Touching tin- allegation that " a con
siderable sum of tlie !i percent bonds
have been illegally extended " we have
a word to '.ay. As already shown the
Ismu' of !) percent bond was limited to
$300,000 h. the law of .September 27,
1S71. Thc-e homK are payable aj the
date expressed on their face, or at a
period not exceeding twenty years from
the parage of the Act. Of thee liouiN,
350.0U0 became payable hepteinher 1,
livSt. They were part of the n-scN of
the .lame-, KobliiMin estate, and by a
mutual arrangement between the trus
tees of that estate and the Government
they wen- continued. This Is the trans
action which Mr. .1. O. C'aiter charac
terized as an 'illegal continuation,"
and from which he draws the injurious
and unjiistlllable couchi-don that the
Government cannot he trusted to meet
Its engagements to the public creditors
as they mature. We aie not prepared
to argue the point of law Involved In
tliN continuance, but we are fully satls
lled that the facts do not warrant the In
ference which Mr. Carter draws from it.
Now, Mr. Editor, to any person
who has read or will read the Loan
Act under which tho bonds talked
of now issued it must appear that
the above quotation is the veriest
quibbling. Jlul the writer naively
remarks that he is "not prepared
to argue the point of law involved
in this continuance." Certainly
not, for there is no room for argu
ment. This breach of law was the
main point in my loiter. The writer
thinks it would pay the country to
make me a handsome annual allow
ance to maintain me in a private
station where 1 could not do any
possible harm. Earring the allow
ance, which my modesty forces me
to decline, I may say that this plan
is quite lo my fancy. If I consulted
my own wishes entirely I should not
btand in a position whoro I must
take the Advertiser's word. The
Advertiser writer should under
stand that any reputation I may
have as a financier came to me
unsought. I make no pretence in
that direction. I am constrained to
believe that this reputation was
earned largely by my habit of pay
ing what 1 owed when it was due,
and this simple rule has kept my
credit sound, and for that reason I
liavo recommended tho Government
to do the same. So far as tho danger
exists of my ever managing the
finances of this Kingdom is con
cerned, I simply liavo to say that the
day has passed when I had such an
ambition and the fears of ihoAdver
tiscr arc quite groundless. Now, in
regard to the reply of Mr. Neumann,
I can say that if he is correct 1 was
certainly at fault, and if so it is my
duty to apologize to any person con
cerned. J. 0. Caktuh,
Honolulu, Jan, 15, 1880.
Editoii Buixktin- : "Can't Seo"
wishes light on the question of how
tho Church of Englnud of the 9th
century, lawfully constituted as
such, must necessarily bo the Church
of tho Apostolic age. It is not my
wisli to dwell frivolously on such a
subject and I trust that "Cau't
See" is not merely bandying words.
"Can't See" has no right to assume
that the words quoted from the Ad
vertiser sustain him in his blindness
about the Church in the Uth century
1 believe that 1 would not be risking
much in taking it for granted that
the writer of that criticism in the
Advertiser will agree with me that
the rub in any controversy about the
present status of the Church of
ICngland must fall upon the ques
tion of the Reformation, upon the
question of the Church's right by
statute law. and the decisions ar
rived at by Convocation of her
Bishops and Clergy, to reform her
self and to declare the jurisdiction
of the Bishops of Home or an' for
eign IJishop illegal and from thence
forth null and void. I think this
because I insist upon it that my
point about the Church in the 0th
century is universally conceded as tt
natural historical consequence. Pre
vious to the outllow of sects from
the Knglish Church since the era of
the Ilcformalion, witli the exception
of the Lutheran movement in Ger
many there were no other religions
in the British Isles except the in
truding Uotnan Church initiated by
Augusine A. I). 000, and the old
British Church whose Bishops Au
gustine found on his arrival. These
both claimed succession from the
Apostles and they both undoubtedly
had equally a true and manifest
succession. You dispose of tho
Ilotnau intrusion when you admit
that the present Church of Kngland
is the Church of the Oth century.
There is nothing left then but to give
the line of Apostolic succession
from the 9th century to tho Apostles,
and this given, "Can't See" ought
to be satisfied that the light he
wants lias been furnished, unless he
wishes some of the early writcis of
the Primitive Church, called the
early Pattern to be quoted and a
reference in Scripture to this Minis
try of three orders.
Phlcgmund was the last Archbis
hop of Canterbury in the Oth cen
tury who presided over the Church
of England in succession to Augus
tine. But we want more than a
succession from Augustine, however,
true and indelible his episcopate
may have been, because his mission
was an intrusion and was resisted
by the old British Church. But
since you question the Apostolicity
of this old church I now give its
line commencing with the last in the
Oth century :
Silvnv, John III., of .Tciu-
Catuius, salem, 51:1.
Cle'danke, John JL.
Gurnel, Maximus lit.,
Narcissus Justus II..
Autonius, John L,
Maximus II., Benjamin,
Julian 11., Tobias,
Julian 1., Justus 1.,
Maximus L, Simeon,
James Alpheiw. one of tho ApoMle.
Tho chief Bishops only are
given in this list, the Patriarchs or
Archbishops. From Jerome, Justus,
Martyr 117, Irenaeus 180 and Tur
tullian, early Christian writers, wc
know surely of the fact that the
church was established in Britain
before the end of the 2nd century,
whether by St. James, St. Philip or
St. Paul in person is and must be
open to conjecturo and without,
much matter. AVe do know that
during the persecution under Mnxi
mianus llcrculcus, Aaron and
Julius and Alban among others
suffered martj'rdoin. At tho council
of Aries, A. D. .'JM, three British
Bishops, Eborius of York, Besli
tulus of London, and Adelphius of
Colonia Londincnsium were present.
From Gildas, a British historian
who wiote 50 years beforo Augus
tine arrived, we learn that the Bri
tish had its struggle with the other
branches of tho church over Aria
nism and Pelngianism, and ho speaks
also of tho orthodoxy of the British
Church and of the fact that she was
governed by numerous Bishops.
Wc can learn also from Gibbon and
Turner that in the middle of the
fitli century after the departure of
tho Boinans 1)3 cities were distin
guished above the rest and governed
chieily by the Bishops and Nobles.
When tho liomans left, the Saxons
poured in, took possession of the
country and tho old British Church,
not as eueli but as Britons, was
driven into Wales.
Augustine who came on a mission
to these heathen Saxons A. D. 090
was resisted by the British Bishops.
Gregory Bishop of Home had sent
him in ignoiaucu of (he existence of
tho English church. Ills fault was
in establishing the Papal Supremacy
in that country instead of aiding
and sustaining the old church already
there. Bede, a British histoiian of
the year (!7!t tells us that lie held
two conferences with the British
Bishops to endeavor to pursuade
them lo conform. In an old Welsh
M. S. the "Dean of Bangor declares
in the name of the British Bishops
that they owed the subjection of
brotherly kindness and charity to
the church of God, lo the Pope of
Koine and lo all Christians. But
other obedience than this they did
not know to bo due to him who was
called Pope, for they were under
the jurisdiction of the Bishop of
Caerleon upon Usk li.o was under
God their spiritual overseer and
director." (Stillingllcet, Bingham,
Lappenberg.) It matters not that
the Saxons called their newly ac
quired country "Angle-land," or
Luglaml. I lie name signifies not.
The Ancient Church with her Bishops
Priests and Deacons were driven out
and maintained their own as vory as
they could against the Bishop of
Borne. And because of this and
because she was at that time the
Church of Christ derived from
Apostalic times the people and clergy
of England in the 10th century re
stored her to her rights and posses
sions originally or ultimately derived
by her. To prove that Augustine
could not lawfully subject the An
cient Cchurch to a foreign Bishop
I quote. " When the Patriarch of
Constantinople assumed the title of
Oecumenical Bishop in fj8."i-595,
Gregory th great pronounced it to
be the beginning of Anti Christ.
"Who is the man who in opposition
to the decrees of the canons ven
tures to assure this novel design
ation? Far from the hearts of Chris
tians be this name of blasphemy,
whereby the honor of all Piicsts is
taken away, whilst one man madly
arrogates it all to himself." (St.
Gregory Ep.vn.) And upon what
Canon did he base such words as
these? Canon vm. of the Council
of Ephesus A. I). -131 says: "Wc
declare that they who preside over
the holy churches which are in
Cyprus, shall preserve without gain
saying or opposition this right of
performing by themselves the ordi
nations of the most religious Bishops
according to the Canons of the holy
fathers, and the ancient custom.
The same rule shall be observed in
all the other Dioceses and in the
Provinces everywhere, so that none
of the most religious Bishops shall
invade any other Province which has
not hitherto from the beginning been
under tho hand of himself or his
predecessors. But if anyone has so
invaded a Province and brought it
by force under himself lie shall re
store it, that the canons of the
Fathers ma' not be transgressed,
nor we lose by little the freedom
which our Lord Jesus Christ has
given us by His blood." Surely it
is clear that the British Church lias
lived from Apostolic times until our
day and generation. 1 hope that
"Can't See" will now see plainly,
and say, enough ! enough ! .
