Ing clergymen, teachers, pupils In High

lltu Election lor Kepiesentatlvcs.
ll is my opinion that all such poisons
aio entitled to vole. The Tax Collector
should Issue to each such person n tax
receipt with the words "Qualified to
Vote" upon it, which he must sign and
in place of the amount or taxes lie must
write " exempt" or "excused." On the
presentation of this Tn Receipt to the
Inspectors of Election nt their sessions
previous to the election, tho niiinu of the
voter must be put on tho list of votcis
and the Ilccolpt returned 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
lenged for other reasons.

THE INDEPENDENT PLATFORM.
The canvass of the Independent
party in the present contest is made
in behalf of
A sound currency system,
The welfare of the native masses,
Government by, for and of the
Internal development ;
Visionary and expensive state
A legislature of olllce-holdcrs,
A currency that will not pay our
Deceiving the native people by
false pretences and empty promises,
Government by, for and of alien
dictators, and incapable domestic or
Useless and costly external glitter.
The above generalization may be
easily amplified into particulars
tinder each head, by all who have
watclied tho present struggle and
are conversant with the Govern
ment's rccord.it. Objects that the
Independents have been contending
for and those that they have been
strenuously opposing arc patent to
the whole electorate, and will appear
to any comprehension on analysis
of the eategony herein given. This
platform is in keeping with the
general course of the Independent
party in the last Legislature. Can
any intelligent body of voters have
dffllculty in accepting it and the
worthy men who represent it, or in
rejecting the principles and the men
opposed to them? Surely uot. Then
it is the duty of every man pos
!.' sosscd of any power and inlluenco
iii affairs, to expend all his energies,
inctlie few days remaining before
tho rendering of the popular verdict,
for the promotion of the cause of
A POOR CAMPAIGN.
Their own campaign proves tho
despicable nature of tho Govern
ment's cause, as well as its desper
ate position. Has the Administra
tion of tliis kingdom nothing to
stand upon in regard to positivo
merit, that it should seek perpetua
tion by means of misrepresentation
of opponents, shaking or misstating
the issues, surreptitiously gaining
control of the people's suffrages,
and corrupting and debauching the
electors? All these things have
been brought home to tho Govern
ment party within the past few
weeks. If they do not provo that
the Government 1ms neither such ft
record nor such ti policy as would
recommend it to mi intelligent elec
torate, they demonstrate that the
patty is immoral in texture, rascally
by instinct and desperate from
necessity. The position that tho
Government party has chosen to
occupy in this campaign is at once a
proof that the Administration lias
not been unjustly tinder condemna
tion of public opinion all these years
of its existence, mid an aggravation
of all the offenses against constitu
tional government and Hit intciests
of the country which Iiumj hitherto
constituted the major portion of its
A communicated article on the
lantana is seized upon by tho Adver
tiser as an assault by the Opposi
tion. Strange that noxious weeds
should be so readily associated with
the Government by its oiwi cham
pion! Mr. Z. Y. Squires is making up a
ticket for Honolulu, composed of
Messrs. Carter, Walerhouse, Swin
ton and himself. His recognition,
however, depends entirely on the
choice of native Independents, to
whom Messrs. Carter and AVntcr
liouse have from the first relegated
the selection of two candidates to
run with them.

of the fact that petty thieving con

of Honolulu, and is likely to until
some of its principals receive duo
attention from those paid for pro
tecting persons and propcily from

my premises last night, tore up by

SOME VALUABLE NEWSPAPER
Millions of dollars have been sunk
in newspapers in this city, and there
is no easier way to waste money
than in newspaper ventures ; but it
is nevcitlicless true that there is also
no surer or swifter method of ac
cumulating wealth than in a judi
cious investment of capital in tho
pioduction of a daily newspaper.
The most profitable newspaper in
the woild, the London Times, is
valued at S-'.'i.OOO.OOO, and the most
profitable in France, the Petit Jour
nal, earns $(!()0,000 a year net, al
though a dozen years ago it was in
solvent. The London Standard is
valued at $10,000,000, the J)aib
JVcus at $(1,000,000, and $5,000,000
would not 1)113' the Telcyraph, it is

New York has any $5,000,000 news
papers, peihaps, but it lias several
which it would takcT $1,000,000 or
more to buy. Mr. Xoilh, of the
Utica Herald, reported in his volume
of statistics of the newspaper press,
issued from the Government press
a year ago, that the gross products
of newspaper establishments in tho
United States amounts to 87,131,
155:2, and the statement affords a
basis of speculation as to the ag
