It is to he reiirctled that. His
Majesty's noblo words, advising tho
electors of Hawaii to preserve the
independence of the kingdom by
maintaining their own independence,
were not repotted to us in time to
have their due weight with the
electors of this island. One of the
many unworthy resorts of the Gov
ernment paily has been the strenuous
endeavor to represent all opponents
of the present Administration as
enemies of the throne and of
nationnl independence. Without
trenching upon the strife of party,
the King lias conveyed a most valu
able and needed lesson to his
GOVERNMENT AID TO THE COLONIZA
A correspondent suggests that the
Government should loan the Colo
nization Company the required
million of capital to secure the con
summation of their project, Iiather
than have the scheme come to the
ground we should strenuously advo
cate this suggestion. There arc,
however, some advantages to be ex
pected from having the undertaking
carried out purely as a private en
terprise, which should cause appli
cation for Government assistance to
be adopted only as a last resort.
Capital plaecd at the disposal of the
immediate promoters of the scheme
by the state would tend to perpe
tuate the apathy of other local capi
talists, whose holding aloof at pre
sent is one of the chief elements of
dishcartenment which confronts the
provisional directorate. Without
general local sympathy, which would
be assured by the enlistment of
direct, individual local interest, it
might bo much more diflleult than
otherwise to carry out the objects
of the Company after the capital
was provided. Then, if the capital
was obtained purely on the national
credit in tho foreign market, the
scheme would lose the advantage
anticipated for it from having for
eign capitalists take it up on its in
- trinsic merits, as affording a pro
fitable field for investment. Foreign
capitalists who put money into the
enterprise would he likely to take
an active interest in seeing that it
did not fail for lack of colonists to
occupy the land, if such were not
already in the country. They might
also reasonably be expected to bring
. to the scheme the benefits of expe
rience in other countries, with re
gard to different agricultural pro
ducts, irrigation, and so forth. It
would, moreover, be to their interest
to promote trado with these islands
in their respective countries, so that
they should really be Hawaiian
commercial agents abroad, who
would doubtless bo able to give us
valuable points as to available
markets for our present staples as
well as other products of which
these islands arc capable. At all
events, it is to bo hoped that there
will be no delay made in the prose
cution of tho enterprise to await
Government assistance. That would
involve tho loss of Taluahle time,
and the amount of interest already
awakened in the scheme outside of
the kingdom bids us hope that it
will also bo unnecessary. At the
same lime, so much importance do
we attach to colonization and agri
cultural development, we believe
that tho Government would be cen
surable if it allowed the colonization
movement, that lias acquired such a
gratifying amount of headway, to
fail for -want of any support that is
Vfitbin its power to bestow to tho
nrosent or any other valid Bclicine.
The Advertiser contradicts a
news item in yesterday's But.uvns
concerning the quantity of gin taken
out of the Custom House. Our in
formation was as authoritative as
that on which our contemporary
liases Its dctiial, and was, doubtless,
substantially correct. Wo arc glad
to hear that the Marshal had given
private notice to saloons to
from 10 o'clock last night till
An ancient election jest, that Is,
however, always fresh when n poll
ing dav comes round, has been
seized on in our local items and
treated by the Advertiser as a piccu
of editorial advice. The incident
serves to show the petulant temper
in which election morning finds the
defender of the bad cause on trial.
Anybody who did not "catch on"
to the time-honored humor of "Vote
early and often," must require sur
gical aid to get a joke into his head.
Only wo beg of the Advertiser not
to insult tho intelligence of our
readers by supposing that any of
them arc stupid enough to imagine
that they were advised to practise
"personation and repeating" by the
"local" in question.
Ennoit Hur.uriN : The coloniza
tion scheme advocated in your jour
nal from time to time looks very
feasible, but it has occurred to me
and others with w horn I have con
versed relative to the matter, that
the amount of capital required one
million dollars may be a serious
obstacle in the way of a beginning;
and I would suggest that it is a
proper thing for the Government to
take in hand. That is, why should
not tho Legislature authorise a
special loan of a million dollars for
the purchase of the lands intended
to be settled and for the carrying
out of the scheme of the projectors?
The Government has been censured,
unjustly, for not having put into
operation the homestead act of last
Legislature. I say unjustly, be
cause I believe there arc no Govern
ment lands worth anything available
for settlement. In that case, why
not the Government secure the
private lands referred to for the
purposes of the homestead law?
KniTon Hui.i.ivris: So much has
lieen Raid and written in defence of
party government that the great
hulk of Knglibh-spcaking people
have eomc to regard it as near the
acme of perfection. To say a word
in disparagement has been consider
ed equal to contradicting an axiom.
Hut it would seem that public feel
ing in its favor is not so vigorous as
it was is becoming a little discon
certed judging from portions of the
Hritish and American press. I
would not say that party govern
ment is not the best method of gov
ernment yet devised, but I cannot
help seeing that it is open to serious
objections. Like many other things,
it is better on paper than in opera
tion. Any intelligent and candid
man can scarcely deny that the
more closely party lines are trawn
the greater is the corruption and
bitterness of feeling, and the
stronger the probability of party be
ing placed above principle. There
was a time when parties did not
exist in this Kingdom, and those
who ought to be competent to judge
assert that its government was then
pure, or, at least, approximately so.
J'artics have gradually developed,
and with them have developed trick
cry and corruption, until an honor
able man shudders at the spectacle.
If such is the price of party govern
ment I want no party government in
