PUBLIC AID TO PRIVATE ENTER
PRISE. A government, it is generally con
ceded, should not as a rule, engage
in enterprises of a private or semi
private nature, for profit or emolu
ment, or in competition with the
governed. It is also generally con
ceded that a government should not
obstruct or discourage private enter
prise in legitimate undertakings,
by the imposition of burdensome
conditions or unnecessary restric
tions. A selfish government, for its own
enrichment, may retard a country's
progress by assuming the right to
conduct undertakings which if left
to private enterprise would succeed
better. An illiberal government
may cripple a country's progress by
hedging around private enterprises
with restrictive conditions which
operate as an embargo to their in
auguration or an impediment to their
successful development. Any map
of the political world furnishes
numerous examples of both these
kinds of government, each of which
is to bo deprecated.
The proposition generally accepted
by the political economists and
statesmen of modern times, in free
countries, is that government should
occupy itself with the protection of
life, property, and the rights of the
people governed, and to the con
struction and care of purely public
works, such as highways, bridges,
etc., leaving to private capital and
enterprise all such matters as are
likely to be undertaken for the sake
of gain, allowing as much freedom
of action therein as possible, com
patible with the common good, and
avoiding the enactment of such legis
lation as would unnecessarily and
injuriously hamper individual or
Somo modern liberal governments,
admitted to bo enlightened and wi90,
go still further, and while avoiding
obstructive interference, encourage
and assist private enterprise in
matters calculated to promote the
public good, by direct pecuniary aid
in the form of bounties, bonuses, or
subsidies. Thus the first great rail
road connecting the eastern and
western scahoaids of North America,
a public convenience, was hastened
by liberal grants of land lying along
its course ; the German Government
encourages the production of beet
sugar, which gives employment and
the means of livelihood to many of
its people, by large bounties : and
subsidies arc often granted to steam
ships, for the fostering and develop
ment of commerce, where the trade
itself is not suflicicnt in the begin
ning to sustain the service.
This helpful disposition of gov
ernment is sometimes taken advan
tage of by unscrupulous persons
and corporations, to secure coun
tenance and support to questionable
ventures or undertakings designed
only to enrich the promoters, and
thus public funds become diverted
from useful objects and wasted on
It can scarcely be disputed ,lhat
iu new countries, with undeveloped
resources, limited populations, and
a scarcity of ready capital, govern
ment ma' properly assist private
enterprise in establishing industries
which in old countries, possessing
unemployed capital seeking invest
ment, may be properly left solely to
private enterprise and private funds.
In tapering the foregoing general
ities towards a local application, it
may be remarked that the Govern
ment of the Hawaiian Islands has
usually evinced a ready willingness
to foster and assist private cuter
prises tending to advance the coun
try and add to its material pros
perity. Foreign and Inter-Island
steamboat subsidies, the subsidy to
the Mahukona railroad, and the ap
propriation for the encomagement
of ramie culture and manufacture,
among many others, are instances.
Indeed, the national money appro
priating body has at times shown
too strong a disposition to shovel
cash out of the public treasury to
satisfy the request of any and every
applicant, whether deserving or not,
so that if that state had kept on we
might now have been askiucr the
Legislature to pay our office rent
and defray the expense of publish
ing the Bulletin.
While not expecting, under the
changed condition of political affairs,
that public money will be voted for
useless objects or given inaid of
undertakings that are not likely to
benefit the country, we have no
doubt our government will always
be willing to accord assistance to '
any intelligent enterprise which aims
at the establishment of a permanent
industry, or is calculated to enhance
the general prosperity, but which
may languish and fail without special
help at the beginning. And as a
venture of this paiticular nature, to
which the Government, in our opin
ion, should afford every cncourac;e
ment within reasonable bounds, is
the projected coffee culture scheme
briefly outlined in our last issue.
The undertaking will be to a large
extent an experiment, but if prose
cuted according to the proposed
plan, will demonstrate whether coffee
culture on these islands, when con
ducted in accordance with the most
approved methods, can be made a
profitable industry. If success is
achieved, coffee plantations will
spring up all over the country, and
we shall thus be relieved from our
almost exclusive dependence on
sugar. These reasons seem to us
sulllcient to warrant government aid j
nay, more, to invite it, in some
shape or other perhaps in the form
of a bounty.

Last Monday was more or less

principally by the natives, of whom
a largo number went to Kapaa to

reason not explained, did not come
