lleie is a case where a law vt ik-
aliusc. Not because of its own
terms, but because the Govcrnii cut
flagrantly ignores the law which
provides that the money raised by
the road tax shall be spent ii. the
district within the tax is collet led.
The facts in this case are : that this
Government road has been on' of
repair and dangerous to travelcis
for nearly, if not quite, two years.
The Hawaiian Agricultural Company
having failed to influence the road
supervisor to repair the road, and
having to cart firewood by this toad
to its mill, was compelled to lav out
a new road, and now come for vard
fifty natives, led by a foreij ior,
and petition that the new road laid
out, built and kept in repair b the
Hawaiian Agricultural Company
may be taken and thrown open as ji
Government road. It is t be
hoped that this petition may
the Government to action.
Wheelbarrows and lounging Chi
nese nightly obstruct pedestria .j on
the sidewalks of King street a of
all Chinatown. The thorougl fare
named, at least, should be ri 1 of
such encumbrances, and it will not bu
surprising if the public pat.mce
gives out before long and tin l the
question of the right of way may
be solved in a summary niaiint if
not with the assistance of the pilicc,
by some method that will give those
gentry work, provided law is to
govern the city.
JLtrper'n Wrilrty pays a high
compliment to "the grand old
man. " An article on ins return in
power and the course lie may take
on the Irish question, closes with
the words: "Hut no vitupcation
or calumny, no cry of treachery,
surrender, demagogucry, or -vanity
is likely to confuse his jiidj inuiit
or daunt his courage. It is i"orttt
nate both for Ireland and for Eng
land that one great Hritish states
man still survives." Such a testi
monial more than olfscts volumes of
the petty criticisms which many
small-fry newspapers dclig'it in
dealiti'' out to their leaders. Ire
land may bu sure that the jusiice of
Iter course, and not the votes f her
representatives, will lie the g liding
fetar of whatever policy Mr. At'. K.
Gladstone adopts for bettering the
condition of her people.
