WHY THIS DISTRUST?
A ministry, with a large majority
in the Legislature, going out in the
night, and another ministry taking
their place in the morning, and
meeting the country's representa
tives with the brief and mysterious
assertion that "there wero reasons
jot necessary to mention at present
that made a change desirable," gave
rise a week ago to all kinds of
rumors of contemplated movements
in the interests of a few to the in
jury of tho mairy. Some of these
rumors were reduced to questions
by a member of the Assembly, to
which the Prime Minister gave an
answer of denial, averring that there
was no foundation for the reports,
and expressing surprise that an
Honorable Member so intelligent
should have been misled b' them.
There the matter rested. But the
community was not satisfied by the
ministerial denial, neither is it satis
fied to-day. People believed then,
and they believe now, that "wheic
there is much smoke there is some
fire." Perhaps there are individuals
in the community who have reasons
for persisting in their belief that
Ministers are not aware of. Be this
as it may, people may well be ex
cused for entraining suspicions
and clinging to false impressions,
when the sole reason they cau get
from ministerial chairs for minis
terial changes is, that a change was
deemed desirable. And so long as
the so-calledresponsiblc government
of this country continues to be con
ducted on this plan so long will
there be suspicion, whisperings, and
mistrust. The present state of feel
ing in this community towards its
government is not desirable; but
ministers have themselves to blame.
Neither is it confined to a section of
the people, but has extended to all
classes and conditions, not except
ing members of the house on the
Government side. A little real can
dor might produce confidence that
does not now exist.
"There is a right and a wrong
way of doing things. By a strange
coincidence of perversity, the Oppo
sition invariably adopts the wrong
way." This is a quotation from the
Advertiser, a paper whoso perversity
of vision prevents it seeing anything
good in the Opposition or anything
bad in the Government. Accord
ing to its representations, the' party
in power is the most spotlessly pure
and the most absolutely perfect of
an' that ever held tho reins of gov
ernment on this progressive planet,
while the Opposition is the most
deformed, debased, debilitated jum
ble of apology for mentality that
ever-dishonored this wicked world.
The Government suppoiters in the
bouse are a wonderful bet of fellows.
Brains, ability, and unerring wisdom
are their attributes. These men. can
do no wrong, To justify illegal
elections, to btillo free speech, to
support a motion and then vote.

obliquities are right and honorable
and consistent, when perpetrated by

But thoso tlumlcr-hcnded Opposi
tionists cannot possibly bo in the
right or do the light, not even by
accident. If thoy attempt to unseat
a member illegally elected, or to
procure information to which they
lmvc a right, or to expose nn irregu
larity, or any otlicr conceivable
thing, they cannot possibly do right.
They arc obstructionists, they arc
the enemies of the country, their
motives arc bad, they "invariably
adopt the wrong way." "We really
pity these poor fellows. The Adver
tiser is after them. They are in
dauger of being "killed" individu
ally, that powerful paper having
long ngo "killed the Opposition as a
party!" We know but little, and
care less, how the public regard the
prejudiced and perverted represent
ations of that organ of a small fac
tion, but presume that every intelli
gent reader places the outer ex
tremity of his thumb to tho tip of
his nose at the close of every article.
As for ourselves, mere casual lookers
on, we regard the "party killer" as
an amusing piece of damaged
machinery, of which each fresh evo
lution produces some now folly more
glaring and moie monstrous than
When a member of a deliberative
assembly mnkes a motion or moves
a resolution, it is a common occur
rence fornnothcr member to second
pro forma, merely to bring the
matter before the assembly, or to
secure an oppoitunity of speaking
on the subject for the sake of oppos
ing it. The custom is usual, and
the proceeding consistent. But for
a person to second a motion when
no pro forma seconding is needed,
and a third person to support the
motion regularly before the assem
bly, and then both the seconder and
supporter vote against it, is a
method of procedure which is a
little puzzling to a man of principle.
And yet this is what was done in
our Legislature on Saturday last.
A motion to accept and lay on the
table for future consideration a
report of a minority of the Finance
Committee was seconded by one of
the members for Honolulu, Mr.
Ilays'elden, and supported by the
Minister of Interior, Mr. Gibson.
When the motion was put to the
vote, both the member and the
Minister were found on the other
side of the question, among the
noes. Tin's kind of thing is desig
nated by various terms of varying
signification, such as stultification,
crawfishing, inconsistency, etc.
None of these terms are very com
plimentary to the action, and the
action is not very creditable to the I
actors. Gentlemen have unmeas
ured contempt for inconsistency.
Just fancy Gladstone, the Prime
Minister of England, crawfishing
out of a motion he had supported in
the Britisji House of Commons, and
voting against it! That would be
the political destruction of the
"grand old man." He would have
to vacate bis scat, shoulder his axe,
and go and chop wood at Ilawarden
for the balance of his days. Here
it is a matter of no consequence.
Inconsistency with us is an insigni
ficant trifle. We are above small
things. Corruption, defalcation,
and peculation are virtues, and the
precursors of promotion and exalta
tion. Modesty, sense, and honor
are crimes, that debar their posses
sor trom recognition ana respect.

ter of the Crown, and His Majesty's
envoy to foreign countries. He
moved that the mles he suspended
and the bill read a second time by
Rep. Thurston wanted to know
what the reasons were for hurrying
this bill ahead of many others be
fore the house for a long time.
Rep. Kcau said it was the course
pursued with regard to other settle
ment bills, and the lion, member had
raised no question against the others.
The motion carried, and, on mo
tion of Rep. Castle, the bill laid on
the table to "be considered with the
other bills for permanent settle
ments. Rep. Dickey propounded tho ques-
j tion, given notice of yesterday, to
the Minister of Finance: "Have
you caused to be paid to the Japan
ese Inspector the sum of two hun
dred and fifty dollars since you took
a seat in His Majesty's Cabinet, and
if so, by what authority?"
Minister Kanoa was surprised with
the question but had examined into
the matter and was now ready to
make all the statement that be pro
posed to make. He did not take
any advantage of the fact that the
resolution was in the foreign lan
guage, but would answer it: "I
have not, and have not told anyone
else to pay him. I have investi
gated the matter and find that this
money was paid out a few days be
fore I took office. "
Rep. Dickey moved that a special
committee of three be appointed to
examine into this expenditure, and
quoted the Constitution as to the
only methods by which money can
be drawn from the treasury.
Rep. Kaulukou raised the point of
order, which the President sustain
ed, that the hon. member must cither
bring in a new resolution or have
the rules suspended.
