LEGISLATION BY GLAMOR.
The events of June SOth, and the
da3's immediately following, and
moie particuhuly the events occur
ring at the close of the legislative
session, ha- e added another to the
many warnings, recorded in history,
in reference to the perils of secret
mananivrcs and hsistj' legislation.
The checks and balances of modern
constitutional government, the law's
delays, arc only provoking annoy
ances to those people who, like chil
dren, want a thing when they want
it "light off."
How often in deliberate c assem
blies will these uneasy spirits cry
out for a suspension of the lilies!
Then they rush matters through hur
riedly, only to find that not having
been well considered, these either
become inoperative because of their
manifest inconsistencies, or need
amendments, and still further amend
ments, to make them mil smoothly,
if indeed they can be made to run
at all. What a botch has been made
in some of the pieces of legislation
carried through no not carried
thiough, only brought forward at
the last session. Why should the
bill reducing the number of the
Supreme Court Judges have been
passed, and then in the face of its
provisions, still unrepealed, why
was the demand made for the ap
pointment of another judge? "Why
was he so evidently appointed with
the view of settling a point in law in
one way, not to provide better secu
rity for evenhanded, impartial justice
in the highest tribunal of the land?
Does the end justify the means?
Then, too, without any attempt
to carry the point by possible con
stitutional method by a two-third
negative vote, why was the at
tempt made to force upon the
Legislature a dishonorable and
iniquitous scheme of denying the
veto power of the King? This
was pushed by the "Hurrah,
boys!" style of lushing a measure
thiough and over all constitutional
limitations. The clamor was raised,
"If you don't agice to this, you arc
no better than a fool, and worse than
n traitor." Now, it is the turn of
those people, who weic called fools
and traitors, to ask some questions,
which cannot bo answered with any
easy conscience, or any great peace
of mind. Is the Aich Deceiver a lit
person to be the King's Counsellor
of State and Prime Minister in the
Government? Is not "Honesty the
best policy?" What is gained by
such transactions, as havo now be
come matters of record, but loss of
honor, of influence, of opportunity
or highest alms and services?
ADMITTED AND NOT ADMITTED.
" l admit," said n gcntleinnii this
morning, "that the sugar planter i
the main-slay of these islands, that
he is'thcgoo'c which lns the golden
egg,' and t would be the last man to
kill such a valuable lmd; but 1 do
not admit that he should be allowed
to over-run and swamp the country
willi coolies from the Flowery King
dom. " Kight you aic. We arc of
the s,amo opinion.
If the planter prefers Chinese
labor and ho is the best judge of
what he needs we sec no reason
why he should not have all he wants,
provided it is not ultimately set loose
upon the community, to come into
competition with people of western
civilization. 'When the term of
contract expires, compel to leave the
country or re-ship, as was formerly
done in Tahiti, when Chinese labor
was sought by the cotton planters
there. We arc unablo to discover
any very serious difllculty in the
way of such an arrangement. "We
do not for one moment suppose that
the planter has any desire to swamp
the country with Chinamen, or to
lning them into competition with the
native or white population.
RED TAPE AND BLUE DISAPPOINT
MENT. One of the disappointing and an
noying acts of the present Ministers
of the Crown, to some "reformers,"
is their retention in oflicc of men
who served the country under the
previous administration. These
"lcformcrs," aforesaid, would de
capitate, in an ofllcial bcnsc, every
one not a member of the League,
who held a Government position
prior to the 30th of June last, and
have themselves and their friends
placed in the vacant ofllces, whether
they arc competent to fill them or
Some heads, mostly of nanow
diameter and light weight, have
tumbled. One, at least, however,
amongst the number could not be
correctly specified by these terms.
But the slaughter has not gone far
enough. Everyone should have
been slain, without mercy and with
out exception. As one vehement
gentleman, whose opinion of his
own importance to the community is
too extensive to be measmed by a
suiveyor's chain, puts it, "every
man who served under the old
regime should be kicked out with
out consideiation." The Ministers
not having the capacity to kick to
the extent lequircd, or not having
the disposition to scatter their hoofs
around so feiociously and indiscrim
inately, and having failed to kick so
strongly and effectively as wished,
have failed to do their duty. So
say some poisons, most of whom
piobably covet oflicc cither for them
selves or their fiiends.
We do not endoisc this opinion.
On the other hand, we commend
Ministcis for having had the cour
age to withstand pressure, and to
retain in their positions many old
public servants who have served the
country eflicicntly and faithfully.
It is the duty of Minister as the
Heads of Departments to see that
subordinate ofllces aie filled by
proper persons, and if they find im
proper persons in olllcc to remove
them with as little delay as possible ;
but it is no part of their duty to
dismiss proper persons, in older to
make loom for persons, piopcr or
improper, who need or desire the
The lefoun movement, which has
been productive of much general
good, notwithstanding many object
ionable features, has been a special
benefit to a few needy persons, by
hoisting them into Government bil
lots. A few others in the move
ment, with similar aspirations, have
not been so fortunate. While the
former have red tape, the latter arc
walking around with blue disappoint
ment, and the disappointmentists
unkindly ask, "Who arc they, (the
red-tapists), "that they should take
precedence of us?" nnd censure the
Ministry for not making loom for
