I BY AUTHORITY.
To the Inspectors of Election in the sev
eral Districts of the Kingdom I
Inquiries having been niado whether
persons who arc exempt from the pay
ment of personal taxes by reason of be
ing clergymen, teachers, pupils hi High
Schools, firemen, &c, or by reason of
bclug over the age of sixty years or
whose taxes have been excused by the
Assessor on account of infirmity or
poverty, arc allowed by law to vote al
the Election for Representatives.
It is my opinion that all such persons
1110 entitled to vole. This Tax Collector
should Nstio to each Midi pet. Mill a tax
receipt with the muds " tjualitlcil to
Vote" upon it, which liu 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, thonamc of the
voter must be put on the list of voters
and the itccelpt returned to tho voter.
At the general Election to be held on
the Urd February, 18S0, the votes of such
persons must be received, unless chal
lenged for other reasons.

THE TREATY THREATENED.
Mr. McMillan, it Democratic He
presuntittivc from Texas, has intro
duceil a bill into the House, reques
ting the President to give notice of
the termination of the convention of
187f) with the Hawaiian Islands.
An article in the San Francisco Call
of the 17th inst. comments on the
reported determination of Congress
man Morrison to use his influence as
chairman of tho "Ways and Means
Committee to secure the annulment
of the treaty. It says: "Mr. Mor
rison's general position does not
seem clear on the question of com
mercial treaties. He opposes a
treaty with the Hawaiian Islands,
under which interests of great magni
tude have become established, and
favors one with Mexico. Mr.
Morrison favors the Mexican treaty
in the interests of free trade. If he
cannot have free trade with all coun
tries, he will have it where he can
get it. "Why lie objects to free trade
with tho Hawaiian Islands is not
known. The reasons he gives nrc
insulllcient. A commercial treaty
with any nation will be one-sided in
the fact that the market of the
United States is wortli more to any
nation than the market of any nation
is wortli to us. Tho Hawaiian
Islands arc not an exception, but wo
didfhot suppose they would be. "Wo
consented to the treaty for other
reasons than the commercial advan
tages it offered." It will bo fortun
ate if the Advertiser's foolish arti
cle 'alleging discrimination "against
the American flag by our merchants,
does not reach Washington in time
to have its duo effect against the
treat'. It is to be hoped the Gov
ernment have taken means to pre
vcnt.that libel against the country,
uttered for local political effect,
from going abroad.
