WEDNKSDAY, FEU. 10, 188C.
THE ENCLISH RADICAL TRIUMPH.
The question upon which tlic Salis
bury Cabinet in Eiiglnnd was over
thrown was that of small farm
holdings for laborers ami others
willing to occupy them. Mr. Collings,
mover of tlic amendment to tlic ad
dress which canied, was a champion
of the movement that issued in the
Allotment Act of 1882. That mea
sure was compulsory in icquiiingthc
trustees of certain chaiity lands in
the country to offer them at a fair
rent to laborcis, whether they ap
plied for them or not. Mr. Colling-
is President of tlic Allotments and
Small Noldiii's Association, and at
a recent meeting that body had sup
ported a proposition submitted by
him that local associations be given
power to acquire the lands by com
pulsory pin chase. It seems that the
trustees had been reluctant to carry
out the Act, so that the offer of land
was usulcss to those for whom it was
intended. Mr. Collings took tlic
eailiest opportunity to press his view
on Parliament, and the result is thai
the Ministry opposing the popular
welfare had to go under. Of course
it was the distrust of tlic Conserva
tive Ministry induced in the Irish
members, by the strong tone of the
speech from the throne regarding
Ireland, which made it possible for
Hie Radical element to turn out the
Ministry. Yet the immediate pre
text was a much more worthy one
than that by which tlic Conservatives
had just before displaced the Liberal
Ministry, namely, a pioposal by the
latter, under the stress of financial
exigency, to make a slight increase
in the beer and spirits tax. A paity
paining a victory on a proposition
involving the people's welfare must
stand upon a higher plane than one
that triumphs by taking a stand on
- an interest that is damaging, accord
ing to the best evidences, to the
public good. It will be a bright day
for Hawaii when a party will arise
and appeal to the popular mind on
the strength of a comprehensive
scheme for the development of tlic
country, with a force that will compel
the sinking of issues involving in
jurious race prejudices and the
musty jealousies of ancient history.
In an article on "Homes for tlic
Landless," the San Francisco Chro
nicle says there is in California alone
an area of over 10,000,000 acres of
. land which only needs water to adapt
it to sustain a considerable popula
tion. It estimates that there is an
area of 300,000,000 aetes of ic-claimable-
land in the Union, and
r contends that it is out of the power
of individual settleis to reclaim this
land, advocating ' tlint Congress
should undertake the work of re
clamation and irrigation on a large
scale, for which it is given power by
the constitution and has established
, a precedent by appropriating money
some years ago for irrigating tlic
Colorado desert. This is a matter
that the Government of Hawaii will
have to take up, if national progress
is to bo assured and greatness
achieved. Thcro must be accommo
dation made for independent settlers
and producers, or civilization here
will go to the wall. The prospectus
of the Oahu Colonization Company
proves that thcro arc lands on tho
group that may be settled, and tho
Government, with the abundant
stiength it has just acquired, will bo
unfaithful to its trust if it allows
another biennial period to pass with
out having accomplished anything
in the way of having an independent
agricultural population adding to tho
health and stability of tho country.

KuiTou Uru.niN: Your corre
spondent "Outsider" appears to be
an amiable sort of person, but like
many amiable persons in time of
political crisis, ho fails to grasp the
situation. It is true there has been
a great deal of bad temper shown
and a great deal of bad language
used during the recent contest, and
this is very much to be deprecated.
It is true also that neither side has
been entirely blameless in this mat
ter. It may be freely admitted that
not all the decent people are on one
side, nor all tlic vagabonds on the
other. No one disputes that some
well-meaning persons voted the Gov
ernment ticket, or that there men in
the Opposition ranks whose patriot
ism is dependent on their hopes of
getting into oflicc. All this and
more is doubtless true ; and what of
it? It is also true that John Brown's
body lies mouldering in the grave,
and that Christopher Columbus dis
covered America in 1-102; just as
true and just about as relevant. The
objection to "Outsider" is not that
he makes a plea for fairness and
courtesy in political discussion in
this, all right-minded persons will
concur but that he tries with his
old and threadbare platitudes about
there being faults on both sides,
etc.. etc.. to obscure the issues on
which the country is divided, or
even make it appear that there arc
no important issues at all. Let mc
assure "Outsider" that the questions
now agitating the country and which
entered into the recent contest, are
not questions of mere detail or of
temporary expediency, but involvo
the fundamental principles of gov
ernment and arc vital not only to
the prosperity but to the existence
of the Kingdom.
The fatal Haw in his position is
tlic assumption that both parties
alike desire "the good of the coun
try and its people," and that there
is only an honest difference of
opinion "as to how this object should
be effectcil." Tins is just wnat me
opponents of the present administra
tion cannot admit. On the contrary,
they most emphatically deny that
the men now in power desire "the
good of the country and its people,"
or that they are working for any
such end., There may be self
seekers iii the ranks of the Opposi
tion, and some whose political action
is not based on principle, but leav
ing these all out of account thcro
still remains a body of men who are
acting from deep conviction and
who arc actuated by a firm purpose.
The writer claims to be one of this
number. I will not recall the dcllnito
and specilic charges under which
tho administration rests. They havo
. been stated often enough and need
not bo repeated here. These charges
arc cither true or they arc false.
"Wo firmly believe them to bo true
and that the evidence now before
the public admits of no other con
clusion. If any "Outsider" or "In
sider" has any facts in his posses
sion which will justify a different
conclusion, let him loso no timo in
presenting them. I, for one, am
always ready to bo convinced by
evidence. In tho ubsenco or nny
sttcli evidence, we stand, now that
the eledlioii a over, just whoic wo
stood before. The same charges
that we made in the midst of the
canvass we now reiterate deliber
ately and in cold blood. Such being
the case, "Outsider" and all like
him should sec how futile is tho
advice to lend the. fJovcrnment our
assistance "for the accomplishment
of a common purpose." The dllll
eulty is that between the present
administration and those who desire
honest, elllelent, and, above all,
conslitutionel government, there is
no "common purpose," and in tho
very nature of things can be none.
The sooner "Outsider" and others
like him iccognizc this fact and
make up their minds which side they
will be on, the better it will be.
THF DRIG ALLIE ROVE.
EniTOit Hui.i.ktix: Sir, In your
issue of last evening a local item
appeals referring to Messrs. Freetli
it Peacock as agents of- the brig
Allie Howe, and indicating that the
statement might have come from me.
I wish to state distinctly that Messrs.
Frccth & Peacock declined to act as
agents for that vessel on her arrival
in Honolulu. Your lcpoitcr was
not advised by mc that there was
any mismanagement by Messrs.
Frccth & Peacock.
Very respectfully yours,
E. C. Itowi:.
Our icpoiter did not attribute
anything to Mr. Howe but what he
said. Ed. Bi'i.i.irriN.
Km rou Biti.uni.v: .Sir, In your
issue of last evening n local item ap
pealed Miyiug, "They (Messrs. Fiectb
fe I'cacoek) Imu1 been relieved of the
agency of the Inig Allie Bowe and
Mr. Iiowe, although stating that lit
is ulituwt linancially swamped by
iiiihiiianagcmcnt of tho iifl'uiis, does
not yet despair."
As a mutter of fact the above item
as legnids ourselves is entiiely incor-
u-et, and as Miich a statement is cal
culated to lellect injuriously on us
we have to lequcst you to grant us
space in your columns to explain our
tiunsnctions in refeience to Mr. Howe
mid the luig.
Dining Apiil, 1881, Mr. Bowe put
the vessel on the beith for Hong
kong and asked us to take tho
agency for the trip. Wo advised
him not to put his cash into the brig,
as Mr. Hoienson ronsideied tho o.-poni-es
of lopairing her would bo far
gieater than her value when lit for
mm. Mr. Bowe was determined, how
ever, and pi decoded with the lepaii's.
We distinctly declined to invest any
money in the speculation in the face
of Mr. Hoieu-on's tcpoit, and on May
8th, 1881, we weie infouned by Mr.
Knwo that all monetary matteis were
in ranged, and that we should not,bo
asked to advance any cash on ac
count of the vessel's indebtedness.
On May Otli, 188 J, Mr. Koienson
called on us and said that unless bis
account amounting to !)-2,l 10.0.") was
immediately paid, he would libel the
brig and piovonl her depiutuie. We
had already issued passengers' tickets
and bunded the pioceeds to Mr.
Howe, under the iinpiession that be
was paying the vessel's accounts in
full, and in older to piotoot our own
credit, we weie oldiged to accede to
Mr. Howe's it-quest to settle Sorenson
it Lylo's account and give tho brig
prompt despatch as adveitised. Mr.
Howe kiivo our Mr. G. 1). Fiectb, as
security for our advances, a bill of
sale of tho vessel, and a few days
afterwaids we voluntarily gave Air.
owe an agi cement whereby we
undertook to tiansfer the vessel to
him at any timo she might bo in our
possession, picvious to an actual
sale, ou payment of our account.
We never at any time or under any
eiicuinstances managed the affairs
of tho Allie Rowe, except as legaids
advancing money and doing the ne
cessary cloiicul work. All conespond
encc was submitted to Air. Howe and
approved by him, and all disburse
ments were made at his expiess wish.
We imidu no contiacts for ropuhs,
chatters, or passenger fees, all of
these matters being at ranged by Air.
Howe or his captain. Air. Bowe de
nies, to us, having mentioned our
iiaiuo to your leporter in any way,
and thoiefoio the question of vein
city us to tho authority under which
your item was published u-sts entiiely
between those gentlemen.
