THE GOVERNMENT VICTORY.
So far as the capital of tlic king
dom and this island are concerned,
and assuming that the voting system
and election methods in vogue here
permit of a free expression of the
popular will, the elections yesterday
resulted in a signal victory for the
Government. While awaiting the
returns from the other island it
would be premature to discuss the
probable consequences of a verdict
coinciding with that rendered by
Honolulu and Oahu. A comment on
the struggle in this district will, how
ever, be proper. The bearers of the
two leading names running on the
Independent side have no reason to
'feel humiliated by their defeat. Com
ing late into the field, having the
conscripted vote of the entire native
militia to overcome, and having to
rely almost wholly upon their indivi
dual exertions in the brief campaign,
they confronted an enemy formida
ble enough, as its strength was exhi
bited in the open, to appall hearts of
no ordinary stoutness. Hut when,
in addition to the circumstances men
tioned, thu standard-bearers of re
form had pitted against them methods
more unscrupulous and unfair than
would void an election in any country
possessing the most ordinary safe
guards of electoral freedom and in
dependence, the vote polled by Jlr.
Carter and by air. Waterhouse really
amounts to a victory. At least they
may bear their reverse more proudly,
although with the sad cohsciousness
that with them was repulsed most of
the independence and untiammeled
intelligence of tho constituency, than
their opponents can wear the plumes
of such a victory as theirs won by
debasing the electorate susceptible
to vile influences; by the coercion
of all the voters within the power
of the Government; by a fraudulent
franchise conferred, in some cases
at the polling booth, upon persons
who had no legal right to the ballot,
and by defrauding others, who wcic
qualified to vote, of their sacred pri
vilege. If the whole kingdom gives
an independent Legislature, these
means of obtaining an unjust ver
dict will stand a chance of being
proven against the Government paity
in Honolulu, and the men who were
announced nt the head of the polls
last night will have to relinquish
their ill-gotten honors. Having said
thus much concerning what the In
dependents had to face from with
out, it would be appropriate to dis
cuss causes contributing to defeat
within the camp, but this we leave
until space can be afforded for doing
the subject a measure of justice in
keeping with its inipoitnnco.

In the Queen's speech nt the
opening of Parliament, Jan. 21st,
the following firm language is used
with regard to Ireland: "1 have
seen with deep sorrow a renewal,
since I hist addressed you, of the
attempt to excite the people of Jte
land to hostility against tho legis
lative union between that country
and Great Britain. I am resolutely
opposed to any disturbance of that
fundamental law, and in resisting it
I am convinced that I shall be
heartily supported by my Parlia
ment and my people. If, as my ni
i'orinaliuii leads me to apprehend,
the existing provisions of the laws
should prove to be inadequate to
dope with these growing evils, I
shall look with confidence to your
uillingnes to invest my Govern
ment with all necessary powers."

Mr. Gladstone's speech, on the
address in reply to the speech from
the throne, was hoar-e at first and
was frequently hardly audible, but
lie rose every few minutes to the
height of splendid oratory and de
lighted the House with his humor.
Kven the Tory Ministers laughed at
his exposure of Salisbury's change
of attitude. He then thrilled it
with solemnity by his personal
pledges and appeals, treating the
whole situation with such tact and
power that he completely discon
certed the Tories, won over the
Irish and pulled the Liberals to
gether. Only a solitary Whig voice
was raised in protest. Gladstone
declared that his opinion expressed
in his Midlothian manifesto was his
opinion nowjaml had been for fifteen
years. Gladstone's speech greatly
pleased the irishmen and several
said: "He has taken all the venom
out of the struggle."

In the House of Commons, on the
2f,th, Sir Michael Hicks-lleach, the
Conservative leader, gave notice
that the Government would intro
duce on Thursday a bill to suppress
the Irish National League and other
dangerous societies; to prevent in
timidation, protect life and property
and to maintain public order in Ire
laud. This announcement was
greeted with loud cheers. Sir
Michael said that ho would ask the
House to give tho bill precedence.
He added that this measure would
be followed by a bill 'dealing with
the Irish laud question on the lines
of policy indicated by the Land
Purchase Act of the last session.

Mr. Collings, member for Ipswich,
moved an amendment to the address
on the subject of the allotments.
Mr. Gladstone strongly supported
Collings's amendment and the Mar
quis of Ilartington opposed it. Sir
Michael Hicks-Beach said the Gov
ernment would willingly accept the
decision of tho House, as they had
assumed ofiicc with reluctance and
would resign with regret. The
amendment was adopted by a vote
of .'li'.l to '21)0, the Government being
defeated. Tlic result of the division
was received by tlic Irish members
with derisive cheers and ciies of
"boycotted." The House, at the
suggestion of Sir Michael Ilicks
Beach, adjourned until Thursday,

A later dcspatcli of the 2f!th
shows Gladstone and Salisbury ex
changing letters on the political situ
ation and with reference to Parlia
mentary procedure in tlic event of
the Ministry deciding to place their
resignation in the hands of the
Queen. It was understood that a
decision to resign had already been
arrived at, and that on or about Feb.
8th Sir Michael Hicks-Hcncli in the
Commons and Lord .Salisbury in tlic
Lords would formally announce the
fact. The correspondent of the New
York Commercial Advertiser says:
The resignation must infallibly hasten
the "Whig secession, the breaking up
of tlic Liberal party into fiagments
and leaving Gladstone at the head of
his Nationalist allies and immediate
followers a defeated Minister lead

The Greek Minister in London, in
an interview on .Tan. 25th said that
Greece the King, the Government
and the people will fight to the
bitter end before they will allow
Bulgaria to absorb one hundred
thousand people belonging to the
Greek race, which she will certainly
do if the union of Bulgaria, and
Eastern liouinelia is recognized.
Greece is fully entitled to the whole

with the rights and liberties of
Greece. I am conlldcntthatthc Greeks
can whip the Turks at sea. As to the

Greece, in reply to the note of
the Marquis of Salisbury, says the
representations of Enland infringe
on international and diplomatic ob
servances and declares that Greece
roscrves perfect freedom of action.
The answer further says that Greece
lias not declared war, nor has she
given cans' for England to interfere
regarding her attitude. Bulgaria
having violated the treaty of Berlin
under the regis of England, Greece
is justillcd in using every moana in
her power, and even to resort to
arms, if necessary, to obtain the
concessions the Treaty of Berlin
gave her. Greece will maintain her
claim to Tlicssaly and Epirus no
matter what the cost may be, and is
prepared to take tlic field at the
earliest moment and fight to the
bitter end in support of her rights.
She is confident of success. The
