THE GOVERNMENT SUSTAINED.
The elections have given the Gov
ernment a majority of eight votes
in the House of Representatives,
which, with even or almost even
sides in tho House of Nobles, and
the votes of the Minislcis them
selves, will make them strong enough
in the next Legislative Assembly
for any purpose. As the Govern
ment supporters returned are about
all olllce-holilers, there can be no
iloubt of their capacity for swallow
ing any mcasuiu prescribed to them
by the Ministry. There is, however,
some hope for the country in the
consideration that the Ministry may
not be obliged to support every
Lobby and injurious measure that
their dependent, irrational and re
actionary followers may drag to the
front. For it would bo uncandid
not to admit that the votes of the
Ministers last session saved the
country from some- very retrograde
legislation, such as the bill to have
the sale of opium legalized. They
would have been entitled to the
benefit of this admission in the late
campaign had they not failed to
suppress, or at least protest against,
the utterances of their recognized
spokesmen in favor of a licensed
opium tralllc. Now that the Minis
tiy lias been given ample power in
the Legislatuic, it only i cumins for
the friends and advocates of good
government to appeal to their reason
and their patriotism, upon the matter
just mentioned and everything else
that may become a subject of legis
lation. The verdict of the people
leaving out of sight how it may have
been obtained makes the Govern
ment's past record a closed volume,
except with regard to the Ministers'
stewardship for the closing biennial
period, which will properly come up
for adjudication before the Legisla
ture and the public at next session.
During the past campaign we have
supported the Independent candi
dates, because the performances
and the promises of the Ministry
and their supporters presented them
selves to us as inimical to the differ
ent interests of the Kingdom ; be
cause wo believed that an independ
cntLegisiature would be the strongest
bulwnrU of national independence
and the surest guarantee of pi ogress
and prosperity, and because the
men put forward as candidates by
the Government party wcro all but
universally unfit representatives of
the society, the commerce, tho in
dustry and the wealth that give
Hawaii a respectable position in tho
family of nations. Kvcnts, how
ever, show that the electorate have
regarded matters in a different light.
AVhile, therefore, we bow to their
decision and shall henceforth address
ourselves, in discussing the admiuis
tuition, mainly to the policy of tho
Ministry as it may be unrolled, wo
must say that tho new House of Re
presentatives is a great disappoint
ment to our estimate of the intelli
gence,, and independence of the
electors of this kingdom. Let us
hope that there is a lingering instinct
of sclf-prcscrvatipn in the breasts of
the ruling majority, which, together
with the power of a very able minor
ity, and the infiuenco of an enlight
ened public opinion nnd an inde
pendent press, will savo tho country
from at least some of the rctrogrado
mid ruinous measures that tho Gov
ernment campaign has given reason
to apprehend would bo tho outcome
of that party's triumph. Although,
however, accepting the defeat of tho
cause of independence, we cannot
acknowledge that tho light lias been
t fair one. Not only did the Gov.
ernment party exhaust every means
of a position unparalleled in consti
tutional systems for giving advan-
tngc to those In power, but It nvallocl
Itself of tho inot dlslionostt corrupt
ami demoralizing methods of" forcing
a decision in its favor. It Will be
many ilecnilcs, if ever, before the
Hawaiian race will recover from the
ilnmage inflicted upon it, through
the influences exerted upon the
native clcctots in the lato contest, to
secure their votes for the mainten
ance of the present administration.
In to-day's paper a correspondent
gives his actual experience in sup
port of our recent plea for a cur
rency "that will pay our debts
abroad." A little fact, will out
weigh a good many tons of theory.
"Now that the smoke of battle
has deai cd away," to use a hack
neyed post-election phrase, a corre
spondent proposes to have the
hatchet buried. We agree with him
there, provided it is not George
Washington's famous " little
We arc not posted in the objects
of the Russian Metallurgical Con
gress, but judging by one of its
actions it seems to hold that the
chief end of the Kmpire is maritime
aggrandizement at the expense of
everything else. It has proposed
the absolute prohibition of tho im
post on foreign iron steamers, and
an increase in the duty on agricul
tural machinery of 110 percent.
Perhaps this amounts to forging
men-of-war hulls out of mowing
machines. If so, it bodes anything
but early millennial peace.

Tho long talked of election in Ha
niakua has at last come oil", and tho
lesults aie what was geneially anti
cipated: the Government candidate
was le-electcd with a majority of 2(i
voles. It was a hotly contested elec
tion. The successful candidate lias
not much to boast of. Had tho elec
tion been conducted fairly and
honestly, Kinney would have gone
in. Every foreigner in the tlistriet,
with tho exception of one, was ic
fiiheil the light to vote. .Men who
have lived in tho country anil voted
fiom 20 to HO years, inanied native
wives anil laisod families on the

Minn (who by the way seelns to lie
an autocrat in his way) that they
hail no right to vote. Our lato De

for years, was l of used a vote. So in

The election at Liliue and Koloa
was contested about as hotly as it is
possible for one to he with the same
candidates and paities. Thoho con
ducting the campaign for the Gov
ernment candidate left no stone un
turned, but their cause was not popu

his friends took freitucnt occasion to

notwithstanding the shameless and
eiy disgraceful use of gin as a poli

previous. I lie liispcctoi.s did their
duties in a manner satisfactory to
both parties. Sonic amusing decep
tions weie practised in the way of
changing tickets inside of the limits
where electioneering was not allowed.
IVrhaps the most laughable was one
at the expense of the Government
candidate. A voter went up lo the
candidate (who is tax collector) and
piescnting him onu of bis own tickets
asked ftir his tax receipt. Tho can
didate smilingly produced the receipt,

It is said that the kahunas failed
signally, though their iiistiuetioiih
weie followed out accurately.
The cartoonist was abioatl.
The Government candidate is
thought to have made himself "un
available" for 1SS8 thiough an in-ili.-crcet
and unjust eliaige of decep
tion, made against a man who had
done all that lie could in his behalf.
Native Independents made capital
out of a pun on the naiue of the
Government candidate ICa-lae-one.
They call Dole Ka-lae-pohaku.
On the announcement of the re
sults of the election, the Independent
leaflets weie so well pleased that
they invited all voteis, and their
families anil friends, of whatever
puny, to join in a grand feast tin

heartily accepted by most of tho peo
