WEDNESDAY, FEB. 29, 1888.
Article 44 of the Constitution, as
quoted by the Government counsel
in his brief, declares "that the legis
lative power of the kingdom is vest
ed in the King and the Legislature."
But the point seems to have been
overlooked, that by tho interpreta
tion, which the Cabinet put upon
Article 48, the King does not co
operate. Tho veto, sent in by the
King only under ministerial sanc
tion, is really an operation of the
Cabinet alone. The King is not re
sponsible for this operation. The
Ministers adviso and prepare the
veto, which one of the Ministers
countersigns. How can the Cabi
net contend that this is co-operation
of the King with the Legislature?
"Otherwise expressed," the Cabi
net's claim would make Article 44
to mean, the legislative power is
vested in the Cabinet and Legis
lature. But tills power gives the
Cabint a double-hold on the Legis
lature The check on legislation
thus provided is a cheek on the
Legislature, but it is in the hands of
the Ministry. These are appointed
by the King, outside of tho Legis
lature, not from .among the repre
sentatives chosen by tho people as
are the Ministers of the English
Crown. These officials, who have
first discussed and voted on some
measure of public policy, arc thus
afterwards empowered to annul the
action of the Legislature by refusing
tho royal signature, in this case
necessary merely to give notarial
validity to any Jaw enacted by tlio
Legislature. It is the Cabinet, and
not the King, which co-operates with
the Legislature. But how does this
consist with the Attorney-General's
idea, thai we cannot lmvo "responsi
ble" government unless the King is
controlled by the Cabinet, and tho
Cabinet controlled by the Legis
lature? Wh:sort of control can
the legislature have over four of its
own members, who can annul nt
their personal will, any voto of the
Nobles and Representatives standing
18 to 10?
We "express" again, whether wise
or "otherwise," the opinion reiter
ated again and again in these
columns, thai n Cabinet, which does
not recognize the paramount obliga
tion of its own pledged honor and
veracity, gives us u fatally "irres
ponsible" government. It is more
to be feared than a Cabinet, which
cannot put n check in the foolish
notions and iniquitous misrule of an
OBSTRUCTION OF STREETS.
The session laws of 188G contain
an Act to prevent the obstruction of
streets, in which hitching horses or
mules in any street, unless as pre
scribed, or permitting them to run
loose, is prohibited. This law is
fractured daily, cither from igno
rance or wilfully. Wo hereunder
reproduce the 20th, 21st and 22nd
sections, for general information :
" No person shall hitch or fasten
any horse, or other animal, to any
ornamental or shade tree in the
streets or side-walks, or to any box
or frame around such tree.
" No person shall leave any horse
or mule in any street, lane or alley,
unless said horse or mule shall be
securely tied or fastened.
" No person shall hitch or fasten
any horse or animal in such a man
ner th it such horse or animal, or
the appliance used for hitching or
fastening such horse or animal, shall
obstruct the free passage along any
side or cross-walk."
TWO FACTS ABOUT COFFEE.
There are two facts which especi
ally encourage efforts in the line
of coffee culture. First, there is
the fact that coffee has come
to be regarded as a necessary of
life, and not a mere luxury, and
therefore the demand for it is as
sured. Moreover, the demand con
stantly increases, and will increase.
The use of coffee is not like a mere
fashionable custom which becomes
popular, flourishes for a while, and
then declines and disappears. Like
sugar, tea, and many oilier articles
of diet which could be dispensed
with without, detriment to health
coffee has secured a hold on the
palate which assures its continued
and increasing use. The other fact
is, that the old coffee regions in
Southern Asia.and South America,
which have been the main sources
of tho world's supply, have been for
a series ot years past ami still are
gradually lessening their yield, the
old trees apparently becoming ex
hausted. New fields are but slowlj'
taking the place of old ones. Thus
while the market enlarges the sup
ply is doubtful. This is not a
pleasant outlook for consumers, but
it is encouraging to those who con
template becoming producers on
The counsel for the Government
in tho veto case has claimed that the
exercise of any personal veto power
by the King is unconstitutional. The
argument to prove this assertion is
that it is inconsistent with other pro
visions of the Constitution. These
all require "the advice and consent
of some other responsible body,"
Cabinet, or Legislature, or Privy
Council. Therefore such is the
conclusion of tho learned counsel
Articlc48 confers no such power.
But this is limping logic. It in
assertion, and not argument j for it
simply asserts the Government side
of the case, without refuting the
King's claim. "The legs of the lame
arc not equal." The counsel's
argument is only Ilia claim of tho
Cabinet, "otherwise expressed."
That claim is, that Article 48 gives
the King no exceptional power. But
that is really the very point in dis
pute. Granted that all other
powers, conferred upon the King,
require the co-operation of some
other responsible body. The King
claims that tho veto power, conferred
upon him does not require such co
operation. To say that Articlo 48
docs not confer such power, because
all other articles in reference to tho
King's power do rcquiro such co
operation, is simply to assert, not
prove the Cabinet's side of the point
in dispute. Mo3t people,' who un
derstand tho force of language,
whether they know or do not know
the intentions of the persons who
formed the Constitution, would say
that Article 18 was intended to give
the King tho veto power exception
ally. This it docs in contrast with
other provisions of the Constitution,
not in antagonism or opposition to
The sense of relief, which un
doubtedly would be felt by the Com
munity to be assured that there is
no possibility under the Constitution
of any antagonism between the King
and the Cabinet," is as nothing com
pared to the sense of grief and
amazement, which overwhelm
every thoughtful right-minded per
son, who reads and ponders such at
tempts to prove wrong to bo right.
It must impair public confidence in
men and measures, bolstered up by
craft and denial, rather than stand
