HAWAII FOR THE HAWAIIAN'S AGAIN.
In a, former article we expressed
the opinion that native Ilawaiians
should be entrusted with all olllces
in the public service for which they
are competent. All disinterested
foreigners approve of this. AVc can
not say that we lulnriie the method
of selecting candidates lor olllces
which it is considered that Ilawaiians
are competent to fill, and into which
it has been decided to place Ila
waiians. We would like to. see
some regular system established by
which Ilawaiians of ability, suit
ability, and character could secure
the recognition their merits deserve.
At present there is no system, or if
system, no system that gives the
deserving a chance. We are grieved
to say it, but it really seems a fact
that the fast young senseless fool
.has the advantage of the modest,
studious, respectable young man.
There is somelr'ng wiong here that
must be remedied if Hawaii is to be
governed by Ilawaiians. Unless the
nation in its onward inarch places
its best brains and best character in
its public positions, for the fulfil
ment of its public functions, its on
ward march will tend straight in the
direction of confusion and ultimate
tumbling to pieces. Then, when
this comes to pass, Hawaii will bo
for the Ilawaiians no longer. Some
foreigners say, Hasten on the time!
We have no sympathy with them.
Some Ilawaiians say, It matters not
what comes after our time! AVc arc
ashamed of thcni.
Never has a prisitinc country or
an aboriginal race, on which and
among whom the white man lias
planted his foot, had such a favor
able opportunity of emerging from
barbarism into the full blaze of ad
vanced civilization, and at the same
time retaining its independence and
maintaining their nationality, as
that afforded the Hawaifan Islands
and the Hawaiian people. The for
eign missionaries who have done the
preaching and leaching, and the for
eign statesmen who have regulated
the affairs of government, have
striven with commendable zeal and
consistency to enlighten a simple
people and build up an independent
nation of self-governing Ilawaiians.
And little Hawaii has towered up
as a wondei ful example of sijcces.
ful teaching and apt scholarship.
Having advanced so far and reached
evil times, there is a fearful danger
of retrogression and of losing every
advantage gained, and lo the watch

wrong just now alluded to is ono of
the visible signs that the danger is

OUR APPELLATE COURT.
In our judicial system a judge
who tries a case Sits in the Appel
late Court to which that case is taken
in the event of appeal. This is ad
mitted to be a defect in the system.
But tho defect is not so great in
practical working as appears in ab
stract contemplation. In the lirst
place two-thirds of the judges who
sit in tne Appellate Court are
strangers to the case that comes up
on appeal. One only of the three
judges forming tho full court has
already pronounced on the case.
Tho other two uro untrannneled by
tho decision of the lower court.
And although the presiding judge
in tho court below, may still adhere
to his former decision, the other
judgcs, being a majority, may
Anally reverse his decision. As a
matter of fact, instances of this
nature are not unfrcqiient. And,
in the second place, a judge sitting
in the Appellate Court is not bound
n" his own decision in a lower
irt. A further hearing of the
e, conference with his colleagues,
ur a more thorough examination of
tho law may induce him to assist in
the reversal of his own decision.
Instances of this kind, also, have
occurred and do occur. So that the
theoretical objection lo our Anomal
ously constituted high Court of Ap
peal is not of great practical weight,
and no man who desires justice need
hesitate ono moment to appeal his
case to the Vull llcnch, against the
decision of one ol its own number.
That the public tire not lacking con
fidence in the Hawaiian court of
final appeal, as constituted, is shown
by Ihc ntrnber ot cases taken to it
lor settlement. Probably no Ap
pellate Court of any country has,
proportionately, a greater number
of cases to adjudicate upon. If the
public had not conlldence in the
Full Court, they would not appeal to
it, and if J heir appeals were not
justly dealt with, their cor lucnee
EXPENDITURE OF ROAD TAX.
This morning's Advertiser is dis
ingenuous in the statement that
the districts got all the road tax
and a 'eat deal more expended
during the last biennial period, but
the late Minister of the Interior
drew against specific appropriations
and did not exhaust, as he might
have done, the road tax." Although,
in the aggregate, more than the
amount of tho road lax may have
been expended on roads, yet each
district did not get its proper share,
or the full amount of its own local
tax. It is said, and we believe
truly, that while some districts had
expended on their roads more than
the total of their tax, others re
ceived next to nothing. Now, it is
poor satisfaction to a district which
cannot get a dollar of its own con
tribution to improve its roads, to
know that its neighbor gets its full
amount or more. The law provides
that, the tax shall be expended in
the district where levied, and not
merely expended for road purpose
anywhere that the Executive may
deem proper. The main object of
the bill which passod its third read
ing yesterday is to provide against
the evasion of the law, of which so
many districts have had disagree
able experience in the past. Then
as to the late Minister of Interior
having drawn against " specilic
appropriations " instead of exhaust
ing the road tax, we take it that the
specilic appiopriations were intended
U3- the Legislature to supplement
the local taxes and not to take their
place, so that a district that may
have icceived many times more, by
special appropriation, than the
amount of its tax, still has an indis
putable right to the local road tax.
To withhold it is an evasion of the
law, and lo intimate that the " spe
cific appropriation " is a proper
substitute is an evasion of the
The Herald refers to a projected
elevated railroad which, it says,
"would revolutionize the handling of
freight on the water front,
to be used in the loading of vessels
with coal, sugar, and so forth."
The "incalculable advantages" pre
dicted to result therefrom arc rather
obscun. The only coal shipped
olf, is that put on the steamers for
their own consumption, and a rail
way would not facilitate the coaling
operation to a great extent. In the
matter of sugar, it might aid in the
transport, but the short distances
from warehouse lo ship, would
hardly warrant the additional ex
pense. The harbor is too small, at
present, to require a railroad, but if
money is to be spent in that direc
tion, let tho harbor first be enlarged
and deepened, and a railway will

The principal objection had been

Hep. lltiyselden moved the bill
be indefinitely postponed. In his
opinion, the bill wan a bad one.
Under the present system the Ifoad
Supervisors cost 818,000 a year,
whilo under this bill the cost could
bo made to reach 8100,000. If
sonio of the Road Supervisors were
no good, let better men bo selected.
The roads nrouud Onhu were in
good condition, because thero was a
good Hoad Supervisor. They had
also good roads on Maui.
Hep. Tluirston.kncw somo of tho
road supervisors individually, nnd
knew if they had the Jiioncy'in their
hands, there Would be good roads,
Monies have been spent in places
other than those where it belonged,
and this bill alms nt correcting this.
The honorable member for Hono
lulu staled the other day that his
opposition lo the bill was that tho
money was lo be handed over to the
road ' supervisors. Now that the
bill has been amended as he wanted
at the time, he still opposes it. The
secret oMhc opposition of the mem
bers of the (lOvernnient and their
friends to this bill is that it will
prevent 8100,000 of the road funds
from falb'ig into the hands of the
Ministers to expend for other pur
poses and to secure ineui ine piCK
ings. If the members wish litis
stale of affairs, which has been
going on from bad to worse every
period, lo come lo an end, they will
support this bill, and if they vote
against it and go back to their con
stituents and say they did the best
they could for them, they will sim
ply'bu telling a lie. If any of the
members votes against this bill and
afterwards gels thrown off his horse
and has his neck bioken, it will
serve him jii9t right.
Noble Cloghorn. thought there
was a necessity for some reform in
the management of the roads. In
some distiicts, roads arc in the
worst possible condition and dan
gerous to travel ; but he thought,
with the honorable niembor for
Honolulu, that the fault lies more
with the road supervisors than with
the Government. There is no need
lo go out of Honolulu lo see bad
roads. There is no regular system
of road making. In Hawaii and
Ilamnkua, sometimes what ought to
be the road is only a ditch, lie
would like lo see this act tried for
two years, and if not found to work
well, then have it repealed.
Hep. Castle referred to the oppo
sition of the honorable member for
Ilonoluiu, as being inconsistent, and
based on incorrect calculations. lie
assumes that the road supervisor
must be a dishonest man, and that
he will call meetings of the read
board every day in the year. The
bill leaves the pay as well as the
appointment and removal of road
commissioners with the Minister of
the Interior and any Minister who
fails to remove a commissioner for
cause, ought to be removed himself.
Hep. Kaulukon said the bill may
lie a very good one, but it will not
aceoinplislfthc purposes desired by
those supporting it. It will create
a great deal of dissatisfaction
throughout the kingdom.
Heps. Kauhane and Dickey spoke
in support of the bill.
Hep. "Wight said the old law, as
was known to every member of this
Assembly, has woikcd wretchedly
in so far as the county districts
arc concerned. He believed the
load tax was sufficient to keep the
toads in order if the moneys came
into the hands of the road super
visors. Hep. Palohau was not in favor of
the bill because the supervisor's
compensation is only ten per cent
which will only allow hun $170 for
his services in the year. They have
good i ads in llanalei because they
atfjnd to them and keep them in
order. If other districts did the
same, there would be less complain
ing about bad roads.

of the bill, in Hawaiian.

ity of your Finance Committee to
which was referred an act to in
demnify the Minister of' Finance
begs leave to report as follows:
The entire expenditures were
made contrary to article 15 of the
Constitution which reads "Article
15. No subsidy, duty or tax of anj
description shall be established or
levied without the consent of the
Legislature; nor shall any money be
drawn from the Public Treasury
without such consent except when
between the sessions of the Legis

or .other public 'disaster shall arii-e

public disaster during the past
period, none of tho expenditures

under a strict construction, more
over none of said expenditures were
acted upon by tho Privy Council us
required nor has a detailed .account
of the same been rendered to this
The expenditures were all made
by authority of Cabinet Council
In passing such resolutions the

which they wero not lawfully entitled
and thereby made themselves in

Upon examination of tho items of

of the Privy Council.

but they did not receive such sanction.
SftJB'TriLiuf 'il ifilH il ii HiliriMllHlrfiCT
Tllo balance of tho items could
hnd should have awaited the action
of this Assembly.
Two of said items,
Pay of Tax Assessors $2,747 !'
Pay of Tax Collectors 2,087 00
could have been avoided entirely if
the Minister of Finance had used
ordinary judgment. He could, in
the exercise of the power in him
vested, have fixed tho commission
of Assessors and Collectors in the
District ot Honolulu at 2A per cent.,
instead of the exorbitant commission
of -I per cent., as allowed by him,
thereby saving tho country about
87,500dnring the bi-cnnial period
and said items would never have
appeared in an indemnity bill.
Two of said items,
Interest Account on Bonds... $0,7"0 00
Interest, on Special Loan 0,725 22
rest upon an illegal basis and should
bo stricken out.
The former was paid on 9 per
cent, bonds held by the Robinson
Estate and which matured and should
have been paid on September 1st,
1881. They were renewed without
legal authority by a private agree
ment between the representative of
of the estate and the Minister of
Finance which was equivalent to a
special loan of the amount of the
bonds at 9 per cent.
The latter item was for interest
on a Special Loan made without
shadow of authority of law.
Your committee cannot condemn
too severely the illegal action of the
late Minister of Finance and is of
opinion tint he and other members
of the late Cabinet as accessories
before the fact were guilty of mal
feasance in olllee, that lie and they
should bo proceeded against to the
full extent of the law and that tho
said Minister of Finance be com
pelled to refund the amount of
S1G,475.22 illegally paid by him ns
above as interest on matured bonds
and Special Loan.
However, as the present Minister
of Finance should not bo held re
sponsible for the illegal act of his
predecessor, and as all the items of
expenditure except the $10,175.22
above mentioned are such as ought
to have been paid out in duo time
under proper authorization your
committee lecommend that the bill
pass with the following amend
ments. Beginning after the words,
"sum of" in first line of the pre
amble strike out Hie words, "Sixty
one Thousand Fight. Hundred and
Forty-three 11-100 Dollars (S01,
8111. M)," and insert in place
thereof the words, "Fifty-three
Thousand Three Hundred and
Thirty-three 90-100 Dollars (S53,
U33.H0)," also strike out in line five
of the preamble the words, "In
terest Account on Bonds, 80,750,"
and insert in place of same "Ex
penses of Queen Emma's Funeral,
$5,905.98." also strike out in line
eleven of the preamble the words,
"Interest on Special Loan, $9,
725.32," and insert in pla,ce thereof
"Search for schooner Ka Moi, 82,
000," and that the Attorney-General
of the kingdom be instructed
to bring s.iit against the late Min
ister of Finance and ail others
legally responsible for the sum of
810,475.22 interest expenditure
above mentioned. '
The items recommended for in
sertion in the bill as above were
duly authorized by the Privy
Council and were omitted for no
apparent reason. They were the
only items fully entitled to a place
therein. Respectfully submitted.
