SATURDAY, JAN. 7, 1888.
The Board of Education, at its
mooting on Thursday, adopted a
resolution to the effect that all Gov
ernment teachers employed in Hono
lulu, who have been examined, and
who shall again fail to obtain 75 per
cent at the examination to be held
six months hence, shall cease to hold
their appointments under the Board.
This may have the effect of inciting
those teachers who wish to remain in
the employ of the Government, to
special efforts of preparation. But
we cannot help thinking that the
Board is moving a little too fast in
this matter, and has placed the
qualification rather too high at so
early a stage of the "new depart
ure," which was inaugurated only a
few months ago. There may be as
great danger of injury to educa
tional iutcrests by placing the stand
ard too high nil of a sudden as by
lack of effort to raise it above the
old level. A successful teacher of
youth might easily fail, under ner
vous tension, to score the necessary
7.r percent at an examination, while
another inferior in knowledge and
teaching ability, but with more self
reliance, scores above it. The pro
per test of a teacher's qualification
is his, or her work in the schoolroom.
A JUDICIAL RULING WANTED.
In last evening's Bulletin, under
the heading of "Pressing Duties,"
we drew attention to the necessity
for settling, once for all, by a judi
cial ruling, the constitutional points
involved in the legislative work of
the extra session. We find what
purports to be laws published "By
Authority" over the signature of
"William K. Castle, President of
the Legislature," attested by "J.
Alfred Magoon, Clerk of the Legis
lature," with an endorsement which
is not contemplated by, or provided
for, in the Constitution. Either
these bills arc laws or they are not,
and as they affect the entire in
ternal administration of the King
dom the sooner the point is settled
The Constitution specifies three
ways by which a Bill passed by the
Legislature may become a law :
First, by the King's approval and
Second, "by a two-thirds vote of
all the elective members of the Leg
islature" over the King's veto.
Third, by lapse of time in the case
of unreturned Bills: "If any Bill
shall not be returned by the King
within ten days (Sundays excepted)
after it shall have been presented to
him, the same shall be a law in like
manner ns if he had signed it, un
less the Legislature by their txCf
journment prevent its return, in
which case it shall not become a
Wc have, however, a fourth way
by which a Bill may become a law,
although the King may have re
turned it to the Legislature without
his signature, and with his reasons
for so doing as provided in the Con
stitution, if the process adopted by
the President of tho Legislature be
ruled constitutional and valid.
Article 48 of the Constitution pre
scribes the course to be taken by
tho Legislature when a Bill is re
turned to it by the King "with his
objections." The Legislature "shall
enter tho objections at large on their
journal and proceed to reconsider
St." This is mandatory. Nothing
whatever is left to the discretion of
r tho Legislature. They shall enter
tho King's objections on their journal
and proceed to reconsider the Bill.
"If after such reconsideration it
shall be approved by a two-thirds
vote of all tho elective members of
the Legislature it Bhall become
a law." Aud tho converse of the
proposition must bo true: if tho
'legislature does not reconejder such
bill, and If two.thlnH of all oloolive
members do not vote to pass it over
the veto, it shall not become a law.
Now, none of these things were
done by tho Legislature. The King
returned certain bills with his objec
tions thereto ; and on motion of tho
Atlornoy-Gcueral a day was fixed
for reconsidering tho first of these.
Meanwhile Mr. Castle interposed
with a resolution to the effect that
the King'9 objection to a bill, unless
countersigned by a Minister was a
nullity, and that the bills in ques
tion should take their course as com
ing under the third class, or unre
turned bills, specified by the
Constitution. But his own endorse
ment, as President of the Legisla
ture, shows conclusively that they
cannot come within that category,
aud if so they are not and cannot be
It is the doubt and uncertainty
regarding this point that we desire
to see set at rest. We want tho
Constitution interpreted by the Su
preme Court, which is free and in
dependent of both the Crown nnd
Legislature, and can afford to do its
duty without fear, favor or affection,
and also without partisan bias or
the predjudice that is not unnatur
ally begotten of close political affilia
tions. Tt is manifest, however,
that a continuance of the present
unsatisfactory conditions is not only
dangerous but must soon become in
tolerable. WOULDN'T WE?
Editok Bulletin': A good deal
has been said in favor of and against
the Portuguese laborers, hut wish
ing not to interfere with plantations
where most of them are employed, I
have kept quiet.
Reading tho Kohala letter signed
"XX" published in the weekly
"Gazette" of January 3rd, 1888,1
saw with great indignation what is
said about my countrymen, and can
not help saying that they do not
deserve a bit more of "rough handl
ing to knock into their heads a be
coming sense of honesty and regard
for the private right" of others"
than the people of any other nation
ality ; and the tru h of what I say
can easily bo iiovjdby simply look
ing at the records of the cases be
fore the courts of this Kingdom, and
by looking at the prison gangs.
If instead of from Portugal, im
migrants had been brought from
I anj' other country, I do not care
what, in such large nuinbcis anci in
such a careless way (as the emi
gration agents only care for the
money), then we would have some
fun, wouldn't wc?
I do not want, just now, to ex
press my opinion as regards "Wide
Awake's" views, but 1 simply ask
what wonder is it that some of the
Portuguese show some improve
ment some time after their arrival
in this kingdom? Why, what makes
almost all of the other people come
to this country, but the hope of im
proving their conditions?
Ignorant, (but not unintellectual,
as Mr. "XX" ignorantly calls ihem)
as they, may be, that is no reason
why they should be abused, and if
they arc such a worthless class of
people, why were they so much
cared for, at the time of the last
elections? (Just at that time, of
course), and how was it that they
behaved themselves better on the
whole, not being divided, than the
people of other nationalities?

Editor Bulletin: The long ex

Board of Health litis been made to
us, at the Leper Settlement, and
here is a short account for the bene
fit of the outside world. The Pre
sident Dr. Emerson landed nt Kalau
papa on Thursday, Dec. 29, at 4 v.
si. and immediately proceeded to
Kalawao, stowing himself in the
physicians house there.
The next morning, Friday, the hos
pital j-ard was visited by the Pi esident
and there standing on the verandah
of one of the houses he was address
ed by various lepers on their griev
ance's. From the Hospital yard the
President rode on horseback through
the street of Kalawao, from thence
to Iuiiaupapa j escaping up the Pali
at noon on Friday, Dec. 80, thereby
spending only a few hours in tho
No doubt the President is satisfied
with his "lengthy?" visit, but we,
the olllicted ones, aro not, and have
yet to be persuaded that tho Presi
dent is not tho holder of un office,
which may bo well called President
of the Board of "Humbug," Your

Kalawao, Dec, 81, 1887,
II. G, J,
THE MODE OF THE GUILLOTINE.
The condemned murderer in
France is informed when the Court
of Cassation rejects his appea) j hut
he always has the hope that tho Pre
sident will pardon him, and on the
strength of his hope most of the con
demned remain comparatively tran
quil. When tho final day arrives tho
convict is awakened by the Warden
about half an hour before tho timo
is set for tho execution. Tho
straight-jacket is romoved and his
ordinaay clothes given him. Then
ho lu hound hand and foot by two
of tho headsman's aides and after
ward left alone with the priest for a
few moments, unless the services of
this ecclesiastic are declined.
From the condemned's cell he is
taken to a dimly lighted room called
the toilet chamber j here, seated on
a stool, lie listens to tho prayers re
cited aloud by the priest, while one
of the aides outs the hair from the
back of the neck and the collar from
the shirt. Hois ready 1 Supported
by two aides and accompanied by
the executioner the priest and two
other officials, tho condemned
marches out, the two outside doors
fly open, and tho guillotine, sur
rounded by the military and the po
lice, greets his eye. Arrived nt the
bascule the executioner and his aides
push him against the swinging plnnk ;
he falls so that Ins neck iits into the
lower half of the moon-shaped soc
ket, the upper half of which is im
mediately lowered; the executioner
touches a spring, the knife falls with
a sharp sound, the head drops into
the tub, a little stream of blood
gushes out from the trunk and jus
tice is satisfied I
Tho whole operation takes less
than half a minute. The headless
body is slid into the willow basket,
the head is placed between the legs
and tho basket is put into a wagon
that has been waiting two hours for
its burden. Escorted by a squad
of gendarmes and followed by a
priest in a modest cab the train gal
lops off to the Ivry Cemetery, three
or four miles away, where a part of
the inclosurc, called the turnio field,
is reserved for the burial of execut
ed criminals. When the body is
not claimed it is immediately ex
humed and given to the medical
school. London Daily Telegraph.
CONQUERED AND CONQUERORS.
At that ball, as during the whole
of my stay in Algeria, nothing ns
tonished me more than the evident
contempt entertained by the con
quered for their conquerors, but
they seemed inclined to make no
effort to throw off the yoke. It is
as if they felt that they were con
queied, not by the French, but by
some inevitable fate, to whose de
cree they must bow with unques
tioning submission. On the other
hand the efforts which the French
make to conciliate the Arabs arc al
most abject in the fervor of their
humility. That evening, if one of
the sheiks condescended to stroll
into the ball room, half a dozen
official personages advanced to bid
him welcome ; the Governor aud his
wife overwhelmed him with atten
tion, and a special officer was told
olf to walk by his side and give him
any information he might require. If
this was done in the hope of exciting
gratitude it was labor in vain ; the
sheik received the advances of his
entertainers with stately courtesy,
but evidently regarded all homage
as his just due.
Nor is it only in the palace that
this extraordinary inversion of the
usual relationship between the con
quered and the conquerors exists ;
in the streets, public assemblies,
everywhere, the same efforts arc
made by the French officials to avoid
all cause of offense. The gendar
merie and the soldiers arc literally
hidden away in daik nooks and
caves, lest their presence should
wound the susceptibilities of the
native race ; and on tho few occa
sions when they must necessarily be
brought to the fore, apparently they
receive private instructions that the
Artibs are not to be subjected to any
of those petty tyrannies which it so
delights the soul of a French official
to practice on his own countryman.
An amusing instance of this occurred
at the Algiers races, a "few days
after the ball. A part of the ground
near the grand stand was surrounded
bj' a red cord, as a sign that the
public was excluded. Through
some misunderstanding a motley
crowd of European', broke down the
red cord and crowded into the re
served space. The gendarmes,
bristling with fury, rode into their
midst, and, striking right and left
with perfectly unnecessary violence,
drove the people away. Some half
hour later the same thing occurred :
again the' red cord fell, and a crowd
took possession of the reserved
ground ; but this time the crowd
was Arab, evidently of the poorest
class, but still Arab. I expected a
repetition of tho former scene, but
to my astonishment one gendarme
looked at another, he made a sign to
a third, who looked for directions to
a fourth ; but no one ventured to
address the intruders.
At length some official of import
unco Wits sent for, nnd after con
siderable delay, hesitation and con
sultation, this parson did summon
sufficient courage to rldo up to tjio
inclosurc ; but far from there boing
any signs of tho violence and abuse
to which the Europeans had been
subjected, ho bowed to tho Arabs as
if thoy were sovereign princes and
ho tho most lowly of their subjects.
In tho blandest of tones ho apolo
gized for disturbing them, and en-1
tprcd into the ino9t elaborate ex
planation qf tho why and wherefore
of the case j but n his prayers and
entreaties were in vain. The Arajjs
listened to what ho said with a
courtesy equal to his own j tho staid
gravity qf their faces nover relaxed,
but moye they woujd not, and did
not; and at length tho officer rp$p
away with a gesture of despair, nnd
gave orders that they were to bp
eft in possession of the ground.
