THE PROJECTED RAILROAD TO
Basing our calculations on the
latest information, the credibility
of which we do not question, we ex
pect ere many moic months havo
passed to sec a railroad constructed
between Honolulu and Wnikiki, and
cars regularly running on it between
the two places. At latest advices
the rails and other material were
being prepared for shipment in Eng
land. After arrival here no time
will be lost in laying down the lails
and putting the cars in motion.
Tho constructor! of this work will
for a time furnish employment to
quite a number of mechanics and
laborers, and its commencement will
be hailed with gratification by the
unemployed. Its completion will
not only bo a boon to the peoplo re
siding at Waikiki and along the route
of travel, but will probably have the
effect of greatly increasing tho popu
lation in that direction. Many peoplo
would prefer the seaside as a place
pf residence wlio cannot afford tho
expense of n liorso and enniage, to
tako tlicm to and fro. Kailway or
linmway connection, with cheap
fares, will obviate the difllculty. .So
wo expect a perceptible increase of
homesteads out that way.
Tho company which has under
taken this enterprise will not, how
ever, have to rely holcly, and per
haps not mainly, on this class of
patronage for the support of the
line. Individuals and families will
undoubtedly avail themselves freely
of this cheap and easy means of ac
cess to see air and sea bathing, es
pecially during moonlight evenings.
A well-appointed hotel at the
Walkikl terminus would be an at
tractive adjunct for patrons of tho
latter class. This, no doubt, will
not bo long in coming after the cars
begin to travel ; if, indeed, it docs
not appear as soon as tlicy.
RESPONSIBILITY AI1D REPRE
SENTATION. Ennou Uui.i.r.iiN: The construc
tion which the Allorney-Guncral
puts upon the provisions of the new
Constitution involves si serious mis
application of language in his use
of the words "lesponsible Govern
ment." While thankful, as we all
may well be, for the good that lias
been accomplished by tho Itefoim
movement, the policy pursued by
the leaders of the Reform Party is
certainly open to criticism to their
discredit in more than one instance.
The clamor of these people for
popular political rights seems to have
been in some few cases only the
means of securing the supposed per
sonal interests of a clique, too small
to be called a league. Added to the
feeling of irritation and distrust,
which such apparent, insincerity
awakens, is the rudeness, almost
insolence, with which those are
tieated, who may have favors to
ask, or who venture to question the
reasonableness of the convictions
which to these people aic so clear.
"These people'' are not "the peo
ple" of the Islands. Their idea of
lesponsible government seems to be
such a style of government by them
selves, that they can call other peo
ple to account for presuming to have
ideas and wishes different from
theirs. But responsibility does not
mean power to compel otheis to do
what wc wish tliem to do.
The construction put upon Article
48, and so vehemently supported by
these people, seems to other folks
an after-thought, devised to meet a
sudden emergency. It is not w hat
was proposed and adopted. The
dissenting Judge in differing fiom
the opinion recently given by the
Supreme Court says that the grant
ing of a veto power to the King
would be an obstacle to the secur
ing of civil lights; and therefore
intciprets the Constitiltion as nulli
fying any such veto power. This
is peiilously like the Jesuitical doc
trine that the end justifies the
means. The Committee of thirteen,
who fiamed the Constitution, and
gave Kalakaua the veto power, most
probably took the risk of conferring
such a right. Now, because they
cannot inlliet a penalty on the King
for not doing as they want him to
do, these people think that they
have not secured "responsible gov
ernment." Then they said a Ha
waiian soveieign: now, they say a
Hawaiian puppet. Aitielc 18 comes
under the exception mentioned in
Article 78, "unless otherwise express
ed," for itbay&expicssly,if.tho King
"approve he shall sign." The "ad
vice and consent of the Cabinet" is
not essential to his appioval, which
is and must be his individual act.
The leaders of the Reform Party
ought to stand by their own acts.
They gave the King the veto power ;
let them not risk the imputation of
inconsistency and insineciity by
whitlling evasions to escape the con
sequences of the enactments they
themselves proposed and secured.
It is these people who aie doing
their best to destroy the principle of
responsibility by refusing to be
bound by their own acts.
We call a man responsible, when
we can assume that he will fulfil
agreements that he has made, or
obligations he has assumed. Other
wise no person and no government
is to be ti usted. Ii responsible peo
plc,liko lunatics, aie not to bo tiust
ed: for we don't know,caiinotjudgc,
what they will say or do next. The
Hawaiian people were held responsi
ble for the acts of their authorized
agents in negotiating the English
loan. The lesponsibility could not
honorably be denied. The charges
for expenses may have been out
rageous. Yet such a bill was an
obligation to be met, and it ought to
have been honorably met by a
special appropriation outside ol any
realizations accruing from furnish
ing the bonds as lequired by the
terms ot the law authorizing the
loan. Instead of this, an arrangement
of questionable legality was allowed
topass,becauseall parties wanted to
get out of the mess as speedily as
possible, and save the credit of the
But power to punish other people
for not doing what wo want them to
do is not the essential idea ol "res
ponsible government." That means,
rightly understood, a government
ti no to the fundamental idea of all
good government, the general good
of the body politic sought in fair
and equitable ways. The leelings
and welfare of tho peoplo, not of a
party upr a cliqiie,ought to be para
mount in determining the adminis
tration of public affairs in every
responsible constitutional represent
ative government. Wo ought to have
such n government in .theso islands,
ono that fairly represents all classes
and all intciesls in the community.
The present go eminent is a vast
improvement over any that wo hao
had before, but it is not above criti
cism or amendment. The idea of
representation isas important as that
of responsibility. A government of
sugar planters for these islands is
not "a government of the people oy
tho people for the peoplo." The
preponderance in any fair representa
tion should undoubtedly be In the
hands of those who havo most at
stake in tho welfare of the country,
and who can bo. trusted to act honor
ably as well ns wisely. Wc acknow
ledge the ability and value or the
mercantile clement. But which is
the more important clement, pro
perty or manhood? If wc want the
best possible government, wc imrst
have the highest possible manhood
as its foundation. If the govern
ment is to be trusted and respected,
as fully responsible for tho situation
and its eincigcncics, all its acts
must be the cxpiession of an intelli
gent and honorable manhood.
Neither shifty expedients and ques
tionable assumptions, nor childish
whimises and extravagances, should
be allowed or defended. Tho 11a
wniians aic too irresponsible as a
idle in matters of daily business.
They arc not reliable. The govern
ment should not be characterized by
any such want of fidelity to its en
gagements. But it docs not need
English party discipline and paity
whips to give us responsible, repre
sentative, constitutional, ministerial
Tnc picsunt Cabinet is composed
of gentlemen of honor and probity,
a selection of representative men
that could not well be impiovcd
upon. But the policy they aro ask
ed to pursue should be straightfor
ward and consistent. The 'people
do not wane lawyers' tricks to gain
the case for their client; but a
manly, honorable, consistent ad
ministration of affaiis that will com
mend itself to every upright man
who wishes well to Hawaii nci.
