SHOULD A PUBLIC SERVANT
HAVE A PRIVATE BUSINESS?
Complaints against persons in the
public bcrvice having nt the bamo
time private business interests are
reasonable, if those persons allow
their private business to interfere
with their public clntic3, or if their
private business interests in
nny way militate against the
proper discharge of their pub
lic duties. A man who is in the
public service should give to it his
entire time ami talents during his
hours of duty. Neither should he
when off duty engage in any pur
suit that may have the effect of di
minishing his fitness for, or lessen
ing his faithfulness to, duty. The
State, whoso servant ho is, requires
and expects this of him, and has a
right to require and expect it.
If he is not picparcd to
fulfill tho requirement, there
is but one course open to him,
as nn honorable nnd conscientious
man, which is to retire in favor of
some one more willing,
But complaints against persons
in the public service having, at the
same time private business interests
arc unreasonable and frivolous, if
those persons do not allow their pri
vate business to interfcie with their
public duties, or if their private
business interests do not, in any way
militate against the proper dis
charge of their publlo duties.
Wero.our public service like that
ol8ome countries, where ajpoint-
inchts nro "for life, or during good
behaviour," nnd superannuation is
accompanied by n pension, the com
plaint would ho untitled to graves
consideration nnd the objection be
worthy of being sustained. But nn
entirely different pi notice prevails
in our public service, which justifies
a public servant, paiticnlnrly if ho
lm a family to feed, in doing his
utmost, consistent with his public
duties, to establish piivnto means of
livelihood, to fall back upon when
he is dismissed from ofllce a con
tingency which uiny occur any dny.
It is an unfortunate fact, that of
late years the position of a public
servant has become very uncertain.
Efllcicncy, honesty, nnd devotion to
duty arc no guaianlcc of continu
ance in olllce. At very short notice
he may be called upon to vacate,
perhaps to make room for' another
who is his inferior in fitness, lie
may be secure enough vhilc one
Ministry is in power, but as its ten
ure of olllce is uncertain, so is his.
The first act of the next Miuistiy
may be to discharge him. Whcio
and T)ien the terms of employment
are so precaiions, it is too much to
expect the employee to lely upon it
as a permanency, or to rcquiic him
to forego any private source of in
come, which is honorable and does
not clash with his pulic duties. In
deed, he is wise, if, like the man v.e
read about in the parable, but in a
legitimate way, he prepares borne
"habitation" to go into when he is
turned out of his "stewardship."
While everyone must acknowledge
that substantial and important ad
vantages have been secured by the
Refoim movement, it is a matter of
regret that spmc flagrant instances
of deccitfulncss and meanness on
the pait of prominent Govern
ment olllcials should have damaged
the record of good accomplished.
We certainly have secured a spirit
of wise economy in the financial ad
ministration of public affaiis, Instead
of the foolish, wasteful, and oxtia
vagant expenditures of recent yenis.
We cannot too warmly praise the
skill and energy in the care and im
provement of our Honolulu streets,
and roads generally all over the
islands. Some improvement in tho
lower judiciary and in the police I
officials gives promise and hope of
still better things.
But without impugning any par
ticular person's motives, or decrying
With wholesale depreciation the pre
sent adraimstiation of "public affairs,
we express the grief of many non
partisan citizens, that some transac
tions look very much liko favoritism
for those of a paiticular clique, or
acts of personal spite against rivals
or opponents. We feel justified in
making this general statement of
approval of the cleaner look and
more wholesome atmosphere in our
governmental affairs. We feel justi
fied, also, in these general statements
of regret and disappointment at
some llagrant instances of deceitful
ness and meanness. The whole Re
form movement is injured by these
deploiable failures at some particu
lar points to maintain the high
standard reasonably expected of our
present political lenders. Some
writer in the native newspapers is
raising the cry "Uewaic of the Re
form Oligarchy." We say, help the
Refoim Party to do good woik, and
better work by sloughing off some
unsightly deformations, that ought
never have been allowed to get their
abnormal and unwholesome growth
on our body politic.
