To the Inspectors of Election in the sev
eral Districts of the Kingdom:
Inquiries having been made whether
persons who urc exempt from this pay
ment of personal tuxes by reason of be.
lng clergymen, teachers, pupils In High
Schools, firemen, &c, or by reason of
being over tlic ngc of sixty years or
whose taxes have been excused by the
Assessor on account of Infirmity or
poverty, nro allowed by law to vote at
the Election for Representatives.
It is my opinion that all such persons
arc entitled to vote. The Tux Collector
should issue to cacli such pcaon :i tax
receipt with the woids " Qualillcd to
Vote" upon it, which he must sign anil
in place of tho amount of tuxes 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 ltecclpt returned to the voter.
At tho general Election to bo held on
the 3rd February, 1880, the votes of such
persons must be received, unless chal
lenged for other reasons.

IMPERILLING THE TREATY.
The distinguished foreign policy
of the present Government has a
splendid illustration in the vigilance
with which the interests of the
Kingdom arc watched at the capital
of the United States. In no direc
tion docs the commerce of this
country assume so vast an import
ance as in its relations to the United
States. It would be expected under
a common sense regime that "eternal
vigilauce, the price of safety,"
would be exercised at Washington,
if anywhere. And when rumors
were thick enough among the papers
all over the United States, of pos
sible, if not probable attempts being
made to abrogate the treaty relations
with the Hawaiian Islands, the
planters as well as the public gener
ally derived a certain degree of self
satisfied complacency in hearing of
these mooted changes, from the
fact that the concerns of Hawaii
would be well looked nfter at the ca
pital of the United States by the ac
credited representative of this King
dom. And there is no reason to
suppose that the Hon. II. A. 1.
Carter would bo wanting in atten
tion to his diplomatic duties. But
here is where tho commanding pre
science and ability of the custodians
of the Kingdom's welfare display
themselves. The Hon. Mr. Carter,
as announced sonic timo ago, is scut
1 off in a sort of wild-cat hunt to Eu
rope to negotiate something or other
with reference to the neighboring
groups. The interests involved in ma
king closer national connection with
the other Pacific Islands are so in
significant in comparison with pre
serving the commercial relations al
ready existing between Hawaii and
America that the mission on which
the Government have sunt their
representative must appear su
premely frivolous as against the
matters from which they have effec
tively withdrawn his presence.
l"' TH? LYRE'S FALSE NOTES.
Tho "Morning Lyro" naturally
rosorts to assumption and evasion lo
escape the results of its misstate
, 'incuts. AVc proved that it falsely
accused certain Honolulu merchnnts
' with discriminating against the
', .American flag. Instead of replying
to our facts, it impudently assumes
'Hiat its slander was a fact. Our
" " article- on tho question of "Discri
mination," published several tlays
ago, has not yet been replied to.
tho "Lyro" in ft single raalcilnl
point, although its twnngiTS hayc
not ceased to piny on the false chord.
"Wo charged the "Lyre's" owners
and controllers with having liccn as
open, if not more so, to the charge
of discriminating against American
shipping, as any persons they can
name among those who distrust the
present Government. More facts
arc tit hand on this score, if the
"Lyre" tempts us to produce
them. Sulllce it, just now, to ask
who it was that tried to get n French
hulk chartered last year at such a
ruinous rate that the captain declared
he would sail in ballast before he
would accept such an offer.
The Chinamen arc spreading all
over the country like the Inntanas
and it is a question which is tho
worse weed. There are thousands
of people in Honolulu that never
have seen our pretty valleys, but
there are more that do not know
what harm that miserable lantanas
plant does to our country, our val
leys, our pastures, our farms. If
our Ministers had a real interest in
the country, they should do some
thing to stop the spreading of this
most dangerous plant, that fills our
mountains and valleys. But this
has to bo seen to be understood, and
to be understood when it is seen.
Kona, Hawaii, is said to suffer in a
similar manner, and the lantuna is,
like leprosy, a curse to the country.
The Government party show symp
toms of being badly shaken by the
recoil of their own schemes the
granting of pauper suffrage, for
"What an inconvenient thing it is
for rascals to have tribunals of
justice established in the laud. The
corralling of votes by stealing the
qualifications of voters has tliereby
been slopped, and the Government
"Lyre" is accordingly tuned to a
A Government candidate was de
tected in the Itcvising Court the
other day with his pocket stuffed
full of tax receipts filched from the
native voters who came to register.
He was compelled to disgorge his
ill-gotten trophies, and tints another
piece of point-blank roguery was
squelched. The Government party's
crooked methods are failing them,
one by one, and it is too late, even
if possible for them, to begin a pro
cess of straightforward tactics.
" The attempt by the" Govern
ment parly " to debauch the natives
by the offer of bribes" and gin

A NEEDED REFORM.
ICniTon Bui.i.nrix: I am glad to
see the Advertiser advocating a
change in the election law for the
preservation of the purity of elec
tions. There are some people in
this community who like myself
belong neither to the so-called Gov
ernment pnrty nor to the so-called
Opposition, who nevertheless are
deeply interested in the welfare of
the country, and these people have
long seen and held that corruption
is bound to exist until the law is
changed. To say that the practices
of the Opposition "are debauching
native voters and undermining the
institutions of the country," may
be true; but the insinuation that
such practices arc confined to tho
Opposition indicates great ignorance
or great dishonesty on the part of
the "great newspaper." These cor
rupt practices have been in years
past and still are perpetrated by
politicians of all classes and parties.
Who docs not know this knows but
little of the country, and who denies
it tells an untruth. Things have
been getting worse and worse for tit
least the last three or four elections.
It is high time some change was
made in the law to cure the evil,
and I for one have no confidence in
candidates for tho Legislature who
will not do their utmost to effect an
improvement in that direction.
