To the Inspectors of Election in tht scv
emt Vhliicts of the Kinettom:
Inquiries Loving been made whether
persons ho arc exempt from the pay
ment of personal tnxes by reason of be.
Ing clergymen, teachers, pupils In High
Schools, firemen. &c. or by reason of
being over the age of sixty years or
whose taxes have been excused by the
Assessor on account of Infirmity or
povcity, arc allowed by law to veto nt
the Election for Representative?.
It is my opinion that all such persons
are entitled to vote. The Tux Collector
should issue to each audi person :i tux
receipt with the words "Qualified to
Vote " upon It, which he must sign and
In place of the amount of taxes he must
write "exempt" or "excused." On the
presentation of this Tax Receipt to the
Inspectors of Election at their sessions
previous to the election, the name of the
voter must be put on the list of voters
and the ltecolpt returned to the voter.
At the genernl Election to bu held on
the Urd February, 18S0, the voles of such
persons must be received, unless clmh
lengcd for other reasons.

WEDNESDAY, JAN. 20. 188G.
TO BE WATCHED.
Electors may receive benefit froiu
watching the course of the Govern
ment satellite. A week or two ago
that journal reached a stage of oc
cultation in the present campaign,
allowing the desperate situation of
the Government to obscure all the
other objects of its oxistence. Its
leading feature began to be made
up of long strings of editorialcttes
under the heading of " Campaign
Notes." These notes arc evidently
meant to be written on a quadruple
sharp eleffed staff, but the com
poser has for the most part pro
duced minor symphonies in a scale
of Hats. (We do not vouch for the
accuracy of the analogy on the
musical side, but nic certain the
description fits the campaign notes).
Those productions aio fiat, stale
and unprofitable except where
they may be of value as a terrible
example of what selfish zeal without
conscience will evolve from a ductile
imagination and a fragile moral
nature. The advice just given the
electorate is designed to make thcin
note just how relevant or otherwise
tho campaign ebullitions of our con
temporary are to tho issues before
the country. Let them mark the
copious How of diction or, as that
soit of writing lias been described
by an eminent pundit, " the ever
lasting stream of wish-wash " em
ployed in discussing airy nothings.
See the avidity with which tho pre
tentious scribbler gibes at the man
ner when he fears to grapple witli
the matter of opponents. Then per
ceive his poverty of resources.
After having so soon exhausted all
that even n pnitisau could say in
the Government's favor, he has to
show his dependence upon opposing
journalists for themes on which to
ply his labored banter. Thus, he is
angry with the Huuxti.h for allow
ing correspondents the usual privi
leges of a public journal, because
thereby he is deprived of just ho
much material to carp at, in tho
proportion of n column of his weak
badinage to an inch of our fact and
logic. When the notist ventures
beyond his safe limits to deal out
spiteful charges against a majority
of tho business community, involv
ing tho most important foreign in
terest of the nation, and this journal,
aware of the mischief his diatribes
may work abroad if allowed to go
forth unchallenged, does not regard
epneo in repelling the
slanders, nor is ovcr-carcful to hnvo
it done in fine-spun rhetoric so Hint
the truth of the mutter is presented
in the hour nt disposal, then ob
jection is taken by our dilettante
literary friend because his nonsense
took too strong a breeze to dissipate
it, and the remedial information was
given with but n moderate drain
upon lexicographic resources. Vain
fellow, to stmt about as he does,
plumed with the egotistic fantasy
that not the good and patriotic re
pute of those having among the
largest stakes in the country, but
his unmitigated nonsense was the
occasion for the two-column demon
stration into which his habit of ex
aggeration made him stretch our
much shoiter article. Of course he
is not aware that it takes more time
and labor to build up than to pull
down. Lot that point remain in
abeyance, however, while the Ad
verther'a due apology is awaited
for slandering many of the leading
firms of Honolulu, and that at the
risk of irreparable injury to the
kingdom. Its chirruping about the
IUu.i.r.Tix's literary fctyle in replying
to its own malevolent accusations,
when the faintest particle of honesty
would dictate that they should be
either proved or retracted, is evi
dence that the Government party
paper cannot squarely face even a
side issue of its own raising, when
it is deemed worth while by the in
dependent press to take it up.
A law licensing the sale of opium
is certainly required to break up the
opium ring. Of course it is opposed
by the ring organs upon " moral
gi omuls." That was to be expected.
"Great is Diana of Ephcsians."
Tho "great gain" from opium
smuggling is sufficient to blind the
eyes of votaries of Mammon to its
moral as well as statutory hcinous
"Coming events cast their shadows
before." The above extract, like
many other similar expressions which
have been appearing from time to
time in the columns of our contem
porary, and all evidently written
under inspiration, if not "by author
ity" of the powers, very clearly
foreshadows the re-introduction of
the defeated opium bill of last ses
sion of the legislature, that is pro
vided the light men, the distritc
judges, the road supervisors, and all
and sundry the motley throng of the
Government's creatures, can bo got
into the next legislature to endorse
the atrocious measure. This is one
of the big schemes of national de
bauchery on the boards of tho
"party of immoral ideas." That
it is opposed upon "moral grounds"
is only too true, from which the in
fcience is plain that there aio no
"moral grounds" upon which the
license of the infamous business can
be defended. That tho opium ring,
so called, includes persons in oppo
sition to the Government may lie
true, but it is a most remarkable
fact that tho "Ad vol User's" oft pro
mised cxposuics implicating its poli
tical opponents and necessary to
substantiate these reiterated charges
against them, have never been forth
THE ORGAN'S PATRIOTISM.
In addition to its usual fusillade of
rant, the "Advertiser" this morn
ing fires off the mendacious slander
against the Bum.ktin that we have
been "following a lead" of disloyalty
to tho King and institutions of the
country." Can anything bo too
villainous for that paper to insert?
How much of the " Advertiser's "
space during the past six, months or
so, has been devoted to "booming"

What might have been had the

Tho Government's schemes are
double-edged in some instances.
Their comprehensive proclamation
of the suffrage to people too poor
to pay taxes, along with other legal
paupers, includes the aged wards of

the superintendent of that institu
tion comes forward to claim the
privilege for them, the "Advcitiser"
has not sense enough to refrain from
a howl of resentment.
Our campaigning contemporary is
like a snoiled babv. very hard to
please. On Monday, the steamers
of the lino for which Messrs. Hack
feld & Co. are agents were described
as "ocean tramps." Yesterday,
again, there appeared an indignation
item in the same paper, over tho fact
that the agents had withdrawn an
advertisement announcing the depar
ture of one of the "ocean tramps"
on the 15th of December last! If
the fighting editor of the Oceanic
Steamship Company's organ had not
been in the " dumps, " he might
have seen that the withdrawal of
that dead advertisement was just
the right thing to do in response to
his own warning that the Hackfelds
in advertising "ocean tramps" were
"imperilling the treaty."
