SATURDAY, FEB. 11, 1888.
THE VETO DECISION.
The "Gazette" takes its defeat on
the veto question with discomfort.
This is natural enough, considering
the dictatorial positiveness with
which our contemporary maintained
the nonexistence in tho Constitution
of the King's right to veto a bill
without the' concurrence of his
Ministers. The Supreme Court,
whose proper function is to inter
pret tho Constitution and laws of the
Kingdom, having failed to sustain
the "Gazette's" position, has, of
course, committed a grave error, has
given a wrong interpretation, and is
evidently incompetent for tho dis
charge of so important a function1!
The "unillumined lay mind" of our
contemporarj' is a better authority
on constitutional law, by far, than
the four professional gentlemen,
learned judges of the Supreme
Court, whose judgment upholds the
veto ; that is, in the opinion of
the "unillumined lay mind" afore
said. Only most people will
probably accept the Court's inter
pretation of law in preference to
that of the "Gazette."
No doubt, any person or any
journal has a right to criticise the
Court's decision in this or any other
matter, within reasonable bounds,
so long as the purity of motive is
left unimpugncd. The Couit itself
intimated this in its judgment on a
ease of contempt not long since.
Therefore there can be no objection
to those who have an itching that
way discussing the Court's finding
re the veto. Although exception
may be fairly taken to our contem
porary's assertion that "a very con
spicuous feature of the opinion of
the majority of the Court consists in
special pleading in support of. pio
positions that are entirely presumed
and not at all dictated by the plain
and obvious force of the words cited
from the document." This is rather
overstepping poetical licence. "Spe
cial pleading" by a judge on the
bench in any case, especially "in
support of propositions that arc en
tirely presumed," is not consonant
with the duties of that high ofllce,
and we do not for one moment ad
mit that the four judges have com
mitted such an offence, nor would
" we say that Mr. Justice Dole, who
recorded a dissenting opinion, did a
similar thing on the other side.
The Court had to decide whether
or not the Constitution gives tho
King tho right of veto, independent
of his Ministers. The question was
simply this: Is the veto in the
Constitution? and not whether it
ought to bo there. A majoritj' of
the Court favored the adlrmative of
the proposition, this conclusion, in
their own words, commending itself
to their consciences and their judg
ment. Tho four judges say that the
veto is in the Constitution. "Wc have
all.along said tho same thing. If
the Constitution is wrong in this re
gard, let it bo amended.
There is no occasion for the "Ga
zette's" assertion, that "the last
state of tho country is worse than
the first, if tho Court's judgment bo
carried out to all its logical conclu
sions," nor is there "cause for
grievous disappointment to all
friends of responsible government."
This is all extreme talk and sheer
nonsense. The King's veto under
the new Coustituti6n is not absolute,
as before, but limited. It can be
oyerridden by a two-thirds vote of
the Legislature. And we venture
tho opinion that the composition of
the House under tho present Cousti-
tution, with oillco-holders ruled out,
rnoy bo relied on to cast a two-thirds
vote in favor of any measure which
tho country is really desirous of.
The writor considers himself a
"friend" of "responsible govern
ment," and thinks ho understands
th6 meaning of the term ; but has
never regarded tho possession of a
limited veto power by the head of a
nation as a very "grievous" matter.
The Governors of British constitu
tional colonics, representing the
Queen, have tho right to veto with
out the concurrence of their Minis
ters, a right which they occasion
ally exercise, and yet the colonists
do not consider this constitutional
provision subversive of responsible
government. No doubt, the decision
of tho Supreme Court is a "grievous
disappointment" to persons who
hastily concluded that there was no
"independent veto" in the Consti
tution, and wished the Court to
support their views ; but there are
many "friends of responsible gov
ernment" in this community, some
of whom would rather there was no
veto in the Constitution, to whom
the decision is no "grievous dis
appointment," for they behoved that
any finding in accordance with the
organic law of the land could not be
otherwise than the one arrived at by
the four judges, and the result aq
known was therefore expected.
Ever since Christmas southerly
winds and showery weather have
been prevalent on Maui, culminat
ing in a. violent gale accompanied by
torrents of rain last week. The
storm did considetable damage, es
pecially at Sprcckelsville, wlleie
many of the laborers' houses were
carried off their foundation, upset
or turned completely round, the
roofs blown off dwellings, machine
shop and mill buildings, heavy cor
rugated iron roofing Jcairied long
distances through tho air, tiees up
rooted or blown down, and the
place looking as if a tornado had
swept over it. In Kahului, little or
no damage was done, but the whole
town was inundated Sunday morn
ing after the downpour of the pre
vious night. The storm raged most
violently round Sprcokelsville and
Kahului, while the upper portion of
the country seems to have been
nearly untouched by it, and coin
plaints have even been heard of the
water being low in Makawao
The schooner "Anna," Captain
"Williams, was towed into port by
the steamer Likelike last Tuesday,
after having been off the island
since the preceding Thursday, but
unable to make port on account of
head wind. She rcpoits a very long
and stormy passage, 28 days fioin
San Francisco. Slio brought u
cargo of miscellaneous merchandise
and 70 hogs which notwithstanding
their long confinement in narrow
quarters, were landed in splendid
Mrs. F. L. Stolz of Kahului, has
been seriously ill for some time past,
but is now reported better and hopes
arc entertained of her. speedy re
covery. Social life is stagnating and the
proverbial "young man" is 'reach
ed" even less than in Honolulu,
where ho has at least the mournful
situation of being written about.
The enjoyable 'Htcruric in Wuiluku
have been discontinued for some
time, with no immediate prospect of
being revived, everybody seeming
to either have gone or are going away.
Kahului enjoyed the novel spec
tacle of a fight between the "guard
ians of the law" and a gang of Chi
nese last Monday. A police oflicer
went into a Chinese lodging-house
adjoining the Custom House and the
Lockup, to arrest a li namau on a
charge of some kind, and surprised
a whole gang of gamblers, who were
taking advantage of the liolida' af
forded them by the inclement
weather, to while away their time
and money in the aforementioned
laudable occupation. They made a
rush for the doors and windows on
the ofllcer's sudden appearance on
the scene; but the whistle atti acted
two brother olllcers who hemmed
them in. The celestials, no doubt
trusting their numerical superiority,
faced their opponents and a lively
Gcullle ensued, in which several pis
tol shots were fired, and clubs, etc.,
used freely, inflicting no serious in-1
jury, however, except a fractured
ami on tho part of the first oflicer
and a couple of swollen noses on the
celestials' side. Tho boys of tho
Kahului Ii. R. came to tho assis
tance of the police, and the China
men were soon overpowered and
marched in tiiumph into the jail,
and thence, taken by train to "VVal
A POINT Oil COCKROACHES,
"Everything is in knowing how,"
reninrked an observant frequenter
of tho City Hall. "If everybody
knew as much about cockroaches as
1 do, tho vermin would soon be ex
tinct. Thoj' wero tho pest of my
life when I was in tho restaurant
business boveral years ago. There
was nothing that disturbed my
peace of mind like the sight of a
cockroach walking leisurely across
tho table in plain view of my cus
tomers. I bought insect powder by
tho quart and tried evciy nicaiiB J
could deviso or hear of to'gct them
out of my house, but everything was
a dismal failure, until dually an ac
cident happened vWiich gave mo tho
information for which I had been
squandering money uselessly. Ono
night some ono happened to leave a
enko'box ono of those Japanned
till affairs staudlng open. Next
morning about a pint of cockroaches
were found in tho box. They had
been able to climb tho outer surfaces
aud get inside, but tho interior sur
faeo was too smooth for them to
soalo and they wero corralcd. Well,
that put an idea into my head. I
went to work next evening and
steamed some rake fco that the in
sects could smell It a long distance
and put it in the box. Next morn
ing 1 had about half a peck of the
vermin. I kept the thing going for
a week and captured every cock-
roncu in tlie House. Tins is some
thing that a cockioach-iidden peo
ple should know wabout. Detroit
