LIBERTY AND LICENCE OF THE
In the Bulletin libel case, in
which the editor of tliib. paper was
sued for libeling an absent China
men, tiied in the Police Court last
week, and the accused discharged,
the counsel for the prosecution said
something to the effect that the
"liberty of the pi ess" had some
times degenerated into "licence,"
here in Honolulu, and the magis
trate was of the same opinion, hold
ing that such had been the case
especially of late yeais. The law
yer and the judge were agreed, and
we agree with them both. Although
always, as in duty bound, contend
ing that the press should be allowed
as much freedom as possible, within
proper and reasonable bounds, we
would be the last to justify an un
reasonable licence which trifles with
private matters, or calls public men
by hard names which are not war
ranted by clearly proven facts.
Wc may here remaik that our ex
perience in newspaper work, both in
this country and elsewhere, goes to
show that those who arc most vigor
ous in their contention for a labid
and abusive press when their ene
mies, or persons whom they dislike,
arc being dealt with, usually go to
the opposite extreme when them
selves or their friends are involved.
For instance, a gentleman walks into
our office for the purpose of giving
us a little secret information, and
takes the liberty to dictate to us
that the matter should be exposed
in our columns in the most scathing
terms. A mild reference would
never do. Nothing short of thunder,
lightning, and dynamite will satisfy
the gentleman's burning desire to
see the proper thing done. Wo in
timate that our opinion docs not
exactly accord with his, when we are
accused of "fear, want of courage,"
etc., our friend not being able, ap
parently, to distinguish between fear
and a proper sense of propriety.
We then inform tho gentleman that
a few minutes before his arrival,
a person had left tho office, whoso
business here was to try to induce
us to take up another matter, and
to "go for" our present visitor, and
"spare hira not." The gentleman
becomes very excited, springs to his
feet, brings his first down on the
table, and hastily jetires, swearing
that if a single word is said about
him in the "scuirilous" sheet, ho
will bring an action for damages.
Ho would intriguo to get his neigh
bor" crucified," and glory in tho
sight ; but it is a disgraceful shame
for his neighbor to attempt the same
with regard to him !
While advocating the "liberty"
of the press, and deprecating a
tendency to deteriorate into "li
cence," wo cannot admit that every
thing which Toni, Dick, or Harry
denominates "licence," isrcnlly llml
kind of thing. If those three res
pectable gentlemen wcic allowed to
be tho judges, tho prcs would ioon
have to shut up. They would decide
that the publication of the fact that
punted posters had been stuck
around the town, containing such
and such statements, is licence; that
tho calling of a Chinaman, by mis
take, one name when his name was
something else, is licence ; that mak
ing public tho price of whale oil, is
"licence." In fact, every item of
intelligence that a paper could pub
lish, would be brought under the
head of "licence," and every paper
would be punished for its "loose
EuiTon Bui.i.r.rix: During a resi
dence at these islands for nbout
twenty yeais, 1 have known more or
less intimately a larcc number of
people of all nationalities, and of all
varieties of religious and political
opinions, and have come to know
pretty accurately what they thought,
what" they professed and also what
they practised. The fact that 1 am
an American, as well as other ex
cellent reasons, has caused mc to
know, and associate freely with, and
in many rbspects to admire the class
of people, against whom there is so
much tiiadc, known as American
It seems to me that this tirading
against missionaries is as senseless
as it is unjustifiable. While I am
not and never have been a believer
in Calvinism, and 1 do not know
that there arc any to-day who do
believe in it, and I have no sym
pathy with cant or loud-mouthed
professions of piety, oi with loud
mouthed piofessions of any assumed
virtue, I dcsiio to say, that when it
comes to hospitality, to geneious
and unostentatious giving ol money
or work, whether for public or pri
vate charities, or for the public in
Uicst, or when it comes to sincerity
and purity of life, to earnest en
deavor such as we all admit e, and
whether wc aie willing to avow it or
not, mean and desire for ourselves
and our friends to make our out
ward and inward lives harmonize and
accord with a woithy ideal I know
no set of people in any community
in which I have lived, who arc, as a
general rule, more worthy of respect
than are the families of American
When the old Puritans left Dclft
Ilaven, whither political and religi
ous persecution had driven them
from their native England, their
aged pastor Robinson advised them,
it is said, to disclaim the appellation
of "Urownists" which had come to
be a term of reproach. The Puii
tans had their evident faults and
short comings. They were largely
such as would be likely to he de
veloped in men of the stern ideal
morality and icligious conviction for
w hich they had been ready to sacri
fice fiiends, home,pioperty and life,
and whicli were intensified by the
hardships of New England climate
and soil, and by constant contact
with savage foes! But the time has
long since passed, when their high
virtues, their faithlulness to duty as
they regarded it, have failed to se
cure the homage of men of opposing
Now whether one does or docs not
drink, dance, play cards, attend
theatres, or churches, he does in his
heart believe in living on principle,
anil not recklessly, it tlie line is
drawn between reckless and con
sciencious methods, and if that is
the demai cation between anti-missionaries
and missionaiics, commend
mc always to the latter, aud call it
cant, hypocrisy or what you will.
The fashion has gone so far, to
sneer at this public-spirited, unsel
fish class, known as missionaiics,
and to accuse them of mercenary,
selfish motives, of driving sharp
bargains, aud of cxchisivcness, that
I think it is high time to protest, as
I now do, against it.
Instead of deeming it a reproach
to be called a "missionary," if all
arc meant to be so classified who
cither profess or pretend to govern
themselves by high ideals, I beg to
be set down as a missionary, and if
one's acts fall short of his hopes in
that behalf, so much the woisc for
him. Ai.i'iti:u S. Hautwt.i.l.
CONTRAST BETWEEN AMERICA
Men speak of tho sacrcdnoss of
liberty. They talk as if tho will of
every one ought to ho his only
guide; that allegiance is due only
to majorities j that allegiance- of
any other kind is liaso and a reliu of
servitude. The Americans are the
freest people in the world ; but in
their freedom they have to ohoy the
fundamental laws of the Union.
Again and again in the Vcst Indies
Mr. Motloy's woids came buck to
me. To be taken into tho American
Union is to be adopted into a pait
nership. To belong as a Crown
colony to tho British Umpire, as
things stand, is no partnership at all.
II is to belong to a Power which
sacrifices, as it has always sacri
ficed, the interests of its dependen
cies to its own. The blood runs
freely tlnough every vein and art
ery of the American body corporate.
Kvcryfsinglo citizen feels his share
in the life of his nation. Great
Ibitain leaves her Crown colonies to
take caie of themselves, i of uses
v hat they ask, and forces on them
what tlioy had rather bo without. If
I were a West Indian I should feel
that under tho slurs rilid blripcs 1
should bo safer than I was at pre
sent from political experimenting.
1 should havo a market in which to
sell my produce- where I should be
treated as a fiicnd; 1 should havo
a power behind mc and protecting
me. and 1 should have a future to
which I could look forward with
confidence. America would restore
mo to hope and life; Great Urilain
allows mc to sink, contenting her
self with advising mc to be patient.
Why should 1 continue loyal when
my loyalty wns so contemptuously
vnlued? fFiom "The English in
