IT OUGHT TO BE PAIO.
The object of Mr. Moreno's "open
letter," referred to a couple of days
ago, is evidently to press his claim
for tho repayment of money ad
vanced by him in defraying the ex
penses Incurred in taking the t three
boys from Honolulu to school in
Italy. Decent people have no sym
pathy, and can have no sympathy,
with the method of procedure ; that
is, w ith the abusive languago per
petually employed in pressing the
claim. But the money, if it .is
.owing, certainly ought to, bo paid.
Mr. Moreno asserts that a .certain
sum of money is due to him, and
naturally desires a settlement. It has
been asserted, on the other side, that
'he has no just claim, that ho drew
.from the Hawaiian Treasury, for
that particular purpose, before leav
ing this country, a sufllcient amount
to defray'nll expenses, and that all
after demands are unjust and should
not be noticed. Now, 'which is the
'true story? For the honor of the
couqtry, the question should be set
tled. We rather incline to give cre
'dence to the first, and are disposed
it to bclieye that the expenses of taking
those three youths to Italy were
borne by Mr. Moreno, and the
"money has never' been refunded to
him. If tin's bo a correct belief
and a publication of the facts of the
" caso would probably com incc most
, people that it is not very wide of
the mark this claim should be
satisfied with as little delay, us
possible. - i
NOT ALL BAD. 1
A discussion has been going on in
the columns of the San Francisco
Bulletin, nndf dot anything we
know, may yet be waxing hotter
every clay, ns to the lpgality of the
Senate of the State of California1.
There appears to have been some
.irregularity alleged against the-con-stitutional
status of that body, and
legal minds were more or less mixed
on thequcstion at issue. Tho Bul
letin thinks there are arguments
very strong nnd convincing on both
sides of. the question, nnd a contest
in tho courts is pretty sure to be tho
outcome of the business ; for, if the
law making power is unconstitu
tional, tbo laws emanating from it
cannot bo valid. Han aft is far
; ahead of California in respect to tho
constitutionality of her legislature
t being beyond if not above bus
1 pteion. The Hawaiian Legislature
proceeds to business, makes laws
and stands no nonsense. Members
elected in violation of law aro voted
"constitutional," and that's the end
of i(. The divided opinions, half on
one side and half on tbo other, in
California, aio very- annoying to
those' senators whoso scats may not
''be beyond dispute. Here, tho
', senator can afford to whistlo at
.. opinions, Once senator, always
'fa senator. Constli-iltjonnl discus
sions aro equivalent, in their jeffecis,
to lhc physical disturbances ,o;io
'.might expect to result from the bay
ing of little ddgs'at the moon.
Thero is niioUior phaso of tho
'irraestioji, tlrat gives if a moro than
'local hearing. Every tqa4 fJiinks
" the? little piece of swaid over which
4 JkO crawls, tho widest, the most lux-
'iuriftntf or othcrwise,in the universe,
his opinion, whether favorabjo or
tbo rovcrsc, being governed mainly
by the condition of his liver. It is
very much the snmo with the indi
vidual citizen, American, Hawaiian,
or Englishman. His own institu
tions are tho best or tho worst
known. Tho government of tho
country, provided the members are
selected from tho'opposito party, is
invariably the most corrupt on tho
earth. The members ate without
exception, steeped to the lips in
villainy. To the Californiun, the
senators alleged to be usurpers, arc
fit only, to make laws for the waste
basket, and in Hawaii, a large and
respectable portion of the commun
ity would be decidedly thankful if
the legislature would take some
leaves out of the Californian's book.
The amount of the calculation,
doubtless is, that politicians pretty
fairly represent their constituents.
As water cannot rise above its own
level, tho public man can hardly be
expected to bo a Solon, if those who
vote folr him are vandals. Public
men are generally the products of
the public opinion of the country.
If the latter is wholesome and pure,
the former will participate, more or
less, in the same qualities.
The ficqucnt references to iriiga
tion in the press, especially of tho
Pacific Coast, indicate that it has
become one of the enterprises of the
country, on which a largo propor
tion -of Us prosperity depends. Tho
value of irrigation needs no demon
stration in these Islands, as every
cultivated 'field in the kingdom
proves its indlspensability. Private
enterprise, so far, has accomplished
about all that has been effected in
this direction, and, under ordinary
circumstances, the irrigation of
lands might be left there.- But
there aro conditions existing in this
kingdom which arc somowhat pecu
liar. That irrigation is .necessary
in every part of the islands to make
lands worth anything for agricultu
ral pursuits, is an accepted fact.
This suggosts the question whether
irrigation should not become a na
tional enterprise and be classed with
tho building of roads, wharves and
landings, under tho head of public
improvements. Other countries
subsidize railways, ferries and
coaches for the promotion of inter
communication and trade between
the people. Manufactures aro aided
by bonuses. Fishermen arc helped to
good prices by bounties. Of course,
no little discrimination is required
in dispensing favors of this kind.
Following out the snmo principle in
Hawaii might result in converting
somo of the wilderness land of the
country into irrigated and fruitful
fields. A well organized national
scheme of irrigation, by which the
country may bo fitted for small farm
holdings, would be of more perma
nent benefit than the immigration
business which has already been a
heavy item in tho public expendi
tures, and has besides introduced
problems into our social and politi
cal system that will not be readily
MR. DAY'S DEBUT IN HONOLULU.
Last evening a number of
persons met by invitation at the
Club House Dining Rooms, for the
purpose of making arrangements for
a series of lectures to be delivered
ip tbis city by Mr. Day. Mr. Van
Doom was called to the chair, and in
a few appropriate, remarks, intro
duced the speaker of the evening to
his audience, Mr. ,Geo. Cayonagh
'acting as Secretary. Mr. Day rose
to the occasion and soon made an
impression on his hearers as n ready
speaker, possessed of no mean
oratorical powers, wjiiph dpvelppod
as he proceeded with his address.
Being a freethinker, ho briefly ex
plained to tho audience the principles
of his belief, but at the same time
ho stated that as a full exposition of
his ideas pn tho subject of' Free
thought might .not meet with public
favor in this pity, fie fypnld, provided
ho met with reasonable support, dis
course upon tho "French jfteyphi
tion, from tho taking of the Bostilo
to the Rise of Napoleon," "Napo
leon, from tho battle of Marengo to
his death on St, Ifeona." in which
tho lecturer will compare tho Jlfe of
Washington to that of thp 'frttl;e
Corporal," tho "Life of thoPukp of
Wellington," and "George Wusljr
ington." Tho speaker's remarks
met with the approbation of his
entire nudieiL?e v)ihh was shown by
At the close of his remarks, Mr.
Day presented tho following reso
lution : "That this body of Work
ingmen do express their heartfelt
condolence with Ills Majesty, Mem
bers of thp Hoynl Tfamily, and tho
Hon. A. a, Cjeghorn in the death of
II: It, H. -Princess Likoljko," Car
ricd'iinaniniously. A vote of thanks to the Chairman
ind Secretary pro.tcm was accorded
and t)p meeting adjourned, after
having Ugreed ppon tho Club House
Rooms as the (Hace which Mr.
Day will deliver his first lectin c; on
Monday evening next, at 7:00 v, if.
LAST EVENING'S MEETING.
Tho meeting at the Y. M. C. -A.
hall last evening was well attended.
It is a strong, though silent tribute
to Mr. Booth's wonderful influence
upon the papular mind, that the
audiences have re-assembled from
evening to evening in force. It has
been frequently remarked by theatre
people that this is n "one-night"
town, but that estimate does not
seem to be correct, as applied to
Mr. Booth's mission. The choir
performed its part, fully sustaining
the repntation the ladies and gentle
men composing it have deservedly
gained for themselves. The Rev.
C. M. Hyde, 1). D., eillciently per
formed the duties of chairman,
and made the introductory speech.
Mr. Booth dealt with the subject,
"The Great Temptation" in an in
tensely earnest and impressive
style. The usual quota of funny
sallies were reserved for tno "Comic
Crowd" lecture, and the speaker
expatiated on the serious phases
of the question. Facts and statis
tics were adduced to prove that
the Europeans are not as ispopular
ly supposed, an abstinent people
nnd that drunkenness, instead of
being less prevalent in wine growing
countries, is exactly the reverse.
A number of signers was obtained
to tho pledge, the enrollment now
being about 2 10. This evening, the
"Comic Crowd," will doubtless
bring a bumper house, the fifty
cents admission fee to the contrary
