Inquiries having been nindo whether
persons who nre exempt from the pay
ment of rjcrsouul taxes by reason of be
ing clergymen, teachers, pupils In High
Schools, llremen, &c, or by reason of
being over the ago of sixty years or
whoe taxes have been excused by the
Assessor on account of Infirmity or
poverty, aic allowed by law to vote nt
the Election for Representatives.
It I my opinion that nil Mich pciBons
should Issue to each such person u tax
lccclpl with the wotds "Qualified to
Vote" upon it, which he must sign and
In place of the amount ol taxes ho 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 (he
voter must be put on the list of voters
and tho Receipt returned to the voter.
At the general Election to be held on
the ilrd February, 18&0, tho votes of such
persons must be iccclved, unless chal
lenged for other reasons.

AN IMPORTANT DAY.
General Election day is the day
on which the people arc invested
witli the full powers and prerogatives
belonging to them under every
constitutional system of government.
The baser bort of inhabitants know
their prerogatives, but unfortun
ately value them only by the quant
ity of gin, cash or other forms of
mercenary spoils they can carry
home with them after, or before,
the day is past. According ns vo
ters of this class prevail, so, in the
samo ratio, may corrupt practices
in government be expected to re
ceive endorsement. When an elec
tion degenerates into a geneial
scramble- after tax receipts, gin,
mono', lish nnd poi, there is
not much of a basis on which to
build an improved code of political
morality, or a higher standard of
political character. If the Govern
ment organs arc wot thy of any
credence whatever, the agencies on
which thoy rely for success arc
those that degrade the voter, and
wrest from him every vestigo of
self-respect. If they are defeated at
the polls, it will be tho best possible
proof that Hawaiian voters aro ris
ing to n, higher sense of self-respect,
and getting beyond the reach of
such despicable influences as thoso
already enumerated. Tho issues
beforo the people are not the issues
of the year 1880, and it cannot fail
to havo been noticed by even the
most obsequious supporters of tho
ptluilulstratiou that the live issues of
the present campaign tire lccpt care
fully out of sight, mid the tlcnil is
sues of six years ago are exhumed
for tlie purpose of diverting the at
tention of the people from the duly
that lies nearcbt to Ilium. The
question before the people is
whether to endorse or condemn the
acts of the picscnt administration.
With that of 1880 or any other
peiiod of history, they need not
trouble themselves. The campaign
litcratuie of the Government has
assumed the form and style of polit
ical ghost stories. Hut the
votes of the people arc called
for on live facts. And it is the
great privilege of citizens of a free
country that public affairs aic
placed befoie them for approval as
to the manner in which they arc
conducted. The exercise of these
rights is now in the hands of Ihu
electors. And on the way in which
they answer for themselves, to
morrow, depends to an extent greater
than they aic awaic, the future of
the country. Once a government
commanding confidence at home and
abroad is placed in power, foreign
capital will flow into the country,
and new enterprises will be started.
Whether confidence in the country
and its future is greater or less five
days hence depends, then, upon the
cast of to-morrow's ballots. Jf tho
sheriffs, district judges, tax asses
sors, tax collectors, road super
visors and other candidates of that
stripe arc annihilated, capitalists
abroad, estimating the political sta
bility of a country whose affairs arc
in the hands of Cabinet hirelings at
its just value, will sec, in Hawaii, a
Held for investment, second to none
A DESPICABLE APPEAL.
The two hours' political ballad
sung yesterday to tin tunc of tho
Morning Lyic by Mr. J. M. 1'ocpoc
at the Armorv does not chord with
facts. People who know better arc
exhibiting a commendable spirit of
fortitude in listening to the incessant
jargon of wild and reckless asser
tions indulged in by the inspired
campaigners who sing and swear for
the Government candidates. Mr.
1'ocpoe's frantic appeal to the natives
to vote against Mr. J. C). Carter be
cause his brother occupied tho posi
tion of Minister of the Interior
during the smallpox epidemic, was
not the appeal of an honorable man.
Residents who know the circum
stances of the smallpox epidemic,
know that Air. J. O. Carter was the
man who, more than any other per
son, exerted himself in the interests
of the suffering people, and secured
the inauguration of those effective
measures which were afterwards
adopted for the removal of the
plague. A man', addressing the
natives, would have referred to Mr.
J. O. Carter's actions in the matter
indicated, in terms of manly, grate
ful and hearty appreciation. But
Poepoo, with that sneaking serpent
ine adroitness of which only an in
flnitesinially little hearted and mean
spirited political charlatan is capable,
attempted lo cast n base reflection
upon tho gentleman whose honor
able and magnanimous effoits at
that time commanded the respect
and commendation of the people,
both native and foreign. It is a re
markable coincidence that the crea
ture who was capable of resorting to
such despicable tactics on the
armory stump, directed his hearers
to vote the Government ticket.
PREPARING FOR ACTION.
Within the Palace grounds are
erected about 25 or 30 tents for the
native military companies. To
morrow at an early hour all those
companies will bo mustered and
marched to the Palace, kthcrc to be
licrdod for the electoral shambles.
To sooth their cruslied spirit of
liberty, and drown all lingering feel
ings of native independence, gin
will be poured, perhaps through a
funnel, down their gullets, until
they are ready to die of fatty de
generation of the heart, on behalf of
their country ! Those who survive
the deluge of liquor will be marched
in squads of ten to vote, like good
soldiers, according to orders. On
the Wnikiki corner of Richard and
King streets is a Government lair,
where a piece of canvas has been
put up over a beggarly array of
benches, for a service of gin mid
poi, or poi mid giu.
A SUCCESSFUL EXPERIMENT.
No sooner had Atlanta voted no
license, or, as the phrase is, " gone
dry," than the great artesian well in
the heart of the city, winch had
reached a deptlt of 2,fi00 feet,
showed itself alive to Ihc state of
things, and began a steady flow of
200,000 gallons a day. Four weeks
the water stood within fouiteen feet
of the surface, and the project was
about to be given up ns n failure, as
the water rose no nearer the surface.
On the suirLtcstion that the altitude
of the surface was higher than the
supplying vein, suction pumps were
put in the well, and an abundant
flow was immediately started.
The experiment that succeeded so
well, in making this well at Atlanta
How, seems to have been based on
the piiueiple of the syphon. Jt
would be wortli trying in artesian
wells in these islands, some of which
arc in the state of the one referred
to before tho water was brought to
the surface by suction.

It has been customary on the
occasion of former elections, for the
Marshal to give public notice that
all places where liqiiorsare licensed
to be sold shall be closed during the
day. So far no public notice has
appeared to this effect. In some
countries the sale of liquor is pro
hibited by law on election days,
with very beneficial effect. If the
same end can bo attained here with
out a spccillc law, it would redound
to the peace of the community and
the credit of the authority securing
Nothing better than the musty
legislative records of the dim past
can the Advertiser produce in its
attempts to influence the electorate
to endorse the present administra
tion. That paper has throughout
the campaign shirked the live issues
of the day, and treated its readers
to ancient pepper and salt that had
lost any virtue they may ever have
posscsssed. The electors should
make a note of that fact, and bo
guided by it to-morrow, for it
proves that the Government party
have neither the cause, the princi
ples, nor the men capable of stand
ing in their true light before the
N0TA DENE TO D. M. CROWLEY.
Kiiitok Bui.i.r.Tix: After read
ing the communication of D. M.
Crowley in the Bri.i.r.TiN of January
Kith, for a moment I felt keenly dis
appointed that my kindly-meant ad
vice to him had fallen upon an ear
apparently wholly incapable of un
derstanding or appreciating a genu
ine friendly offer. But upon taking
into consideration that perhaps tho
poor fellow, overcome by his strenu
ous exertions and endeavors to
deluge the islands with prohibition
water, had, somehow, to use a
modern expression, "become a little
off," at once the whole trouble be
came to me as plain as day. I am
loath to believe that my friend D.
M. C. would write an aiticle
teeming with call and anger as
last attempt, were he enjoying
proper brain balance
In regard to Gov. Iloadley, it is
about time that D. M. U. came to a
halt with his twistings and jokes
about that gentleman. Friend C.
may mean no harm, and may bo
laboring under the erroneous im
pression that the end sought for
always justilies the means, but that
sort of thing is becoming rather
monotonous. I fully agree with
him that, "an angry or over-cx-citcd
man" forms a very sad spec
tacle to look upon, cren from a
considerable distance. And, judg
ing from the manner in which he
spread himself whilst engaged in
concocting his last display of literary
pyrotechnics and self-laudntory bun
combe, he must have selected a
clear forty aero lot at least for his
putpose, as his trumpeted 20x40
feet hale Icamalii ( ?) was certainly
loo much circumscribed in its
bounds for such an undertaking.
Glad to hear lie had got a big house
anil has such a high opinion of him
self ns a haolc akamui, making
plenty of "glory and dollars" and
all that sort of tiling. Thanking
him for his kind invitation to pay
him a visit, and sincerely hoping
this may find him in cooler and
sweeter temper than lie was in when
he penned his last epistle,
