Following is a paper read (his
forenoon at the meeting of the
Planter's Labor & Supply Company,
by Mr. J. M. Horner:
Mn. Pnr.sinr.NT or ini: Plani nits'
Laiioii & Sui'i'iiY Co: In order to
make an intelligent report' on Legis
lation, I copy from article first of
our By Laws the following, as a text
for my report, viz.; "And having
for its' objects, the importation of
labor, the improvement of the in
dustry of sugar raising in this King
dom, and the the general benefit of
- its stockholders." I wish to call
your attention to, and to emphasize
"the last clause, "and the general
benefit of its stockholders. Fiom
the above it appears that wc have
the right to legiblatc upon all sub
jects that we consider beneficial to
us, whether of a financial, political
or moral nature.
Under the heading of "Financial
Benefit" I will call your attention to
two laws of this Kingdom, the rum
and opium law, which wc consider
mischievous to our financial interests,
and in this way: if a company of
men, either by law or legerdemain,
so injure my horse that I can get
only a part of the service out of him
that I formerly could, they take so
much of my property from me and rob
mc of so much benefit; or if they
so injure my help by free opium
and liquor laws that I can get only
a, part of the benefit from them that
I pay for, I have a right you have
a right this Planters' Association
lias a right to protest, and to take
action to prevent this loss which in
the aggregate is large ; as every
plantation manager and every over
seer will tell you that they suffer
great loss during the year from the
use of rum, and now that the free
use of opium is added, our interests
will be still more injured, and wc
can, and must protest and legislate
for the general benefit of stock
holders. Not only.arc planters in
jured by the evil working ot these
vicious laws, but merchants and the
general public nre also injured, as
there is less property for trade and
traffic by many thousands than there
would be if labor was not injured
by these debasing evils.
Political benefits. While former
cabinets were piloting and steering
the ship of State, with Mr. Sprock
ets behind the curtain as prompter,
wc felt safe, although things were
not quite to our liking ; but now, I
feel that wc are drifting drifting
upon an unknown sea with neither
compass, chart nor rudder, and
where wc will fetch up, no one
knows. We felt safe under the
pilotage of former cabinets, because
we knew them to bo intelligent, "and
sprung from the ruling race. I have
an exalted idea of the high destiny
of the white man and of ins power
to control and govern both men and
elements. The word in the begin
ning seems to have been spoken to
the white man, when he was com
manded to "subdue the earth and
have dominion over it." Europe
was given to the white man, America
to the red man, Asia to the yellow
man, and Africa to the colored man.
And with slight exceptions, the
white man is the only one that has
ventured beyond the "bounds of his
habitation." lie has overrun Eu
rope, and crossing the Atlantic
westward, has taken possession of
America, and is "monarch of all ho'
surveys" from Cape Horn to Pehr
ing's Strait. He has stepped across
, the Pacific Ocean, leaving the im
print of his enterprising foot upon
the various islands of the sea ; he
bas taken possession of Australia
and India with their countless thou
sands ; he has gone to Africa and
this time tostay, you bet this
time, it will not be a ' Mongo Park,
a Livingstone, a. Baker, or a Stanley,
as a traveller or explorer. The
f coming of the white man to Africa
means government, enterprise, agri
culture, commerce, churches, j
schools, law ana order. Jt will be
better for the colored man to liavo
the white man rule. It is better for
the yellow man of India and Ati&lia
Ha that the white- man rule, and it
is better hero that the white man
rule, not that be should hold the
offices and be Icing, but bo must do
a largo share towards making tho
laws, and then seeing that thoy tiro
obeyed by king and people.
Moral benefits. Years ngo, when
the first missionaries landed upon
these Islands, they found the people
truly "children of nature" inno
cent, hospitable, unschooled and
untaught, living in the rudest way,
labpring but little oven to bccure
. comforts, with no commerco and
f little agriculture', and with very
crude ideas about property. But
the native was taught how to in
crease his comforts by labor, which
he has done to some extent, but he
docs not likp it. lie has learned
that civilized government requires
officers. Tho office ho likes (most
men do if the salaries are large)
for ho has learned that it is an easy
way to get a living. lie has also
learned that to suppoit a civilized
government and pay its ofllccrs re
quires money, which is taken ir6iii
the people by law in the way of ft
tax. Thcso things ho has learned,
but he has not learned yet of the
snetodness of money taken from the
people by process of law, and the
personal and moral obligation of
every olllccr to restore to the people
full value for every dollar taken
from them by piocess of law, and
that the people will hold him
strictly accountable for it. This
he has not learned, and must be
taught it by the white man, and you,
gentlemen, must teach him. All
the native seems to comprehend
now, is, lirst, to get into olllcc, aim
if his salary is not large enough to
support his fancied dignity, he
must raise it; and if the money is
not in the treasury to pay his checks,
ho is to take it from those that have
it by process of law, as he has been
taught. So, almost without discus
sion, without consultation with the
parties most affected, in a hasty and
undignified manner and by as it
were a wave of the hand, 30.V per
cent is added to the tax roll of the
kingdom. This, 1 say, the native
has been taught by the while man,
but ho docs not yet realize that to
all this power there are necessarily
some bounds and limits fixed, as
well as the moral and personal ob
ligations attending it. And further,
he does not realize the danger
there is in taxing peoplewitliout their
consent. An unwarranted use of this
power has upset the authority
of powerful nations and
caused the shedding of much blood.
The white man has organized for
the native, a government, placed the
ballot in his hands, and set him up
as ti lawmaker and a ruler ; but the
placing of these powers in his hands
before he knows how to use them is
like placing sharp knives, pointed
instruments, and dangerous tools in
the hands of infants. They do not
yet realize the effects of their own
acts even upon themselves ; hence
they want teaching. You must
teach them, do not take these powers
from them, but teach them how to
use them, so as not to injure them
selves and us. It is now painfull'
evident that our hist legislature and
the preceding one were handling
edged tools and in a manner dan
gerous to this kingdom, injurious to
the people, and to the health of the
natives. 1 need only refer you to
the two laws upon opium and rum
to make most of this apparent, while
the government's Genealogy Board,
armies and other follies clinch the
The danger to the natives linking
in the "Indulgences" laws above re
ferred to, being in their nature
death dealing, will destroy many
'natives to one Chinaman and hun
dred of natives to one white man, so
that the natives will waste away un
less they are saved by the white
man by you, gentlemen and the
white people outside of these walls.
You must, under God, save their bo
dies as the missionaries tried to save
their souls. Where there is a will
there is a way, and the white man,
belonging as lie does to the domi
nant race of the eaith, at the nrc-
scnt time, and possessing as he also
does, a goodly share of intelligence.
always finds a way to carry out his
projects, whether they be laying
cables, running railroads, exploring
the heavens, or governing among
the nations. Hence, I take it, j-ou
have a right under your charter and
by-laws, to save this government
and people and to pi otect their in
terests whenever and by whatever
means you think best, and whether
these interests be financial,
political, moral, or legal.
And it is the duty of this organiza
tion to protect their own interests,
whether they be assailed by taxation,
or by immoral or extravagant laws.
AYe now ought to call upon all the
people of these Islands, of all
.nationalities who have the welfare of
this country and people at heart, to
come to the help of the Lord against
these mighty sins of intemperance,
extravagance and folly, and by their
acts, protest against those laws that
have opened the flood gates of in
temperance and let loose tho jugger
naut of hell to roll over and crush
the weak victims of intemperance.
This doubt will bo set down as
"Politicts." All right politics
means the Science of Government,
and if not polluted, good govern
ment. When an individual thinks
that he can shut tho mouth of an
American, a British subject or ti
ucrmtin wnen no laius oi taxes or
sumptuary laws, by simply calling
"politics," ho is much mistaken.

ROYAL HAWAIIAN1 AGRICULTURAL
Tho annual meeting of the above
named Society was held, pursuant
to announcement, at the Hotel, last
evening. Tho Vice-President, Hon.
A. S. Clcghorn, being absent, Hon.
L. McCully presided. Mr. J. S.
Webb, Secretary, read the following
IToxoi.ui.t', October 21, 1880.
On taking ofilco the Board of
Management found the society in
debt to the Treasurer for balance of
cost of removing tindrc-erccting tho
large hall, and also under obligations
to many exhibitors for medals which
had been awarded to litem. The
whole of the grant made to the
society by the Legislature in 1884
had necessarily been applied to the
payment of the debt incurred in
that year for buildings at Kapiolani
Park, and no means of defraying
the expenses of a Fair were left
except tho subscriptions of .members
which, at the most sanguine com
putation, would be wholly inadequate
for tlu purpose, the charging of
entrance fees to the public having
been virtually abandoned when the
Fair was transferred to the Park,
where until tjie society's ground is
fenced in, thcic is no way of collect
ing them. Under these circum
stances tho members of the Board
were unanimously of opinion that
it was undesirable to hold an agri
culture fair during the present year.
It was at one time intended that a
horticulture show should lie held
during the present month in the hall
on King street, but when arrange
ments to cany this project out were
initiated it was found that sufficiently
long notice to intending exhibitors
had not been given, and that tho
-show was in consequence not likely
to be a successful one.
The Treasurer and Secretary were
instructed to ask the Government to
place on the estimates a grant in aid
of the society. They presented a
memorial to the late Minister of the
Interior, Major Gulick, who ex
pressed himself strongly in favor of
it. A change of Administration im
mediately following, the matter was
brought before the new Minister,
lion. Mr. Gibson, who entertained
the proposals very cordially and on
whose motion the Assembly granted
a subsidy of $1,000 in aid of the
society. With this assistance the
successors of the present Board of
Management will be in a position to
carry out the objects of the society
in a modest way, but it must depend
very greatly upon the suppoit
awarded to them by the public in
the way of subset iptions whether
they can offer prizes to exhibitors in
the same liberal manner as in the
Under the circumstances, it lias
not been deemed proper to collect
'the subscriptions of members for
the past year. The debt due to tho
Ti easttrer for cost of removing the
hall has 'been partially defrayed by
voluntary subscriptionsof members
and non-members, who take an in
terest in hoitieulture.
The Secretary advocated the hold
ing of a horticultural show at an
eaily date. Mr. F. L. Clarke
thought if the ladies' interest could
be enlisted, the show might be a
success, and for his own part, he
would contribute creditable exhibits
of Hawaiian ferns. Mr. Charles
Lucas thought a horse show ought
to be combined with the horticul
tural and floral exhibit, as this de
partment had attracted special at
tention on former occasions. "Judge
McCully said it would be difficult to
find a suitable location with suffi
cient room near the city for such a
show. On motion of Mr. Giffard,
it was resolved "That the Board ot
Management be instructed to cause
a horticulture show to bo held dur
ing the month of May, at the So
ciety's hall on King street.
KI.KCTION OF OITICKHS.
The following officers were re
elected, His Majesty the King being
permanent President; Hon. A. S.
Cleghorn, Vice-President; Hon. S.
M. Damon, Treasurer; Mr. J. S.
Webb, Secictary. The Board of
Directors were also re-elected, as
follows; Hon. L. McCully, Mr. K.
F. Bickcrtou, Dr. II. McKibbin,
Mr. Charles Lucas, Mr. W. M.
Giffard, and Mr. B. F. Dillingham.
A discussion followed on the ad
visability of holding a stock show,
in which Hon. L. McCully, Capt.
Boss, Mr. Bice, Mr. Jaeger and tho
Secretary took part, lesulting in the
passing of a motion recommending
that u live stock show should bo held
Tho chairman intimated that tho
Board of Management do not intend
to give so many silver medals in fu
ture. He thought bronze medals
would bo satisfactory.
Mr. Jaeger remarked that tho high
est mark of honor in the German army
was an iron medal.
A newspaper man present asked
if that had any connection with the
"man of blood and iron" at the
head of affairs in Germany?
There being no further business,
the meeting adjourned.

Though the members of the Royal
Hawaiian Band arc now enjoying a

struments like the harp in Tara's

Band practice frequently and with
much vigor at the club house on
Berctania street. In time the per
formers in this band will, no doubt,
give us plenty of good music. Just
now they "make Pome howl," their
instrumentation being that of
"sweet bells jangled, out of tune
and harsh." They arc no worse,
however, than the Hawaiian Band
was in the time of Kamehameha V,
and wc can reasonably hope that
with a little more practice they will
give us music as good as the Royal

'That Israel Fisher came to his
death the 11th day of October,
188fi, by taking some unknown
poison from some source obtained
unknown to us outside of the dis
