Perhaps nothing has so strong an
influence in moderating extremists
in politics as experience in office.
Men who, as leaders of parties or
factions, out of office and so far
irresponsible, propound and advo
cate theories or principles of govern
ment of a decidedly iconoclastic
character, usually evince a less
extreme disposition when placed in
office, and hesitate to assume tho
responsibility of practically adopt
ing in its entirety their own teach
ing. This is commonly regarded ab
an exhibition of dishonesty. The
endorsers of the extreme views en
unciated by their apostle while he
was an aspirant for official power,
now believe that his only object was
to win their support and secure their
votes, and having accomplished his
purpose and attained the desired
elevation, ho cooly and ungratefully
ignores their wishes.
In this construction tho truth is
undoubtedly ofton found, and by it
also the Until is probably as often
missed. Tho responsibility and ex
perience of office compel a modifi
cation of tho views previously
foimcd and honestly advocated.
"When the man was out of office nnd
a looker-on ho saw, or thought ho
saw, vfhat should be done nnd how
it should be dono j but when in office,
and tho work and responsibility of
doing placed in his hands, ho dis
covers that his notions are inappio
priato, injudicious, or impracticable,
and finds that it cannot be done.
The changed position and circum
stances present the same matters to
view in another nnd more practical
aspect, nnd thus many un extieine
liberal becomes mellowed into a
1. I - II II l
IN A NUTSHELL.
It 13 of small importance uhclhcr
tlio Portuguese immigrants came to
this country with tho intention of
staying or not, and it is of no con
sequence whether somebody said
that they did or that thoy did not.
The fact remains, that homo of them
do emigrate to California when their
coutracts here have expired, which
they have a perfect right to do.
Most likely they, almost to n man,
came villi tho view of remaining
until they return to their native
land; but after arrival here they
learn something about California,
and believing that they may do
better there, nie induced to try.
They came hero, just as other peo
ple come, with the view of bettering
their condition in life. If they did
not believe there was any chance of
accomplishing this purpose, they
would not have come. The same
purpose takes them from these isl
and to California ; and after a littlu
experience there, sonic of them
will go elsewhere for the same rea
son. If they were doing ten times
better than they are, a peicentage
would still leave with the hope of
doing better. They might after
wards regret it, but they would
leave all the same. This is thu whole
thing in a nutshell. There is no re
flection upon the Portuguese in
tended in the foicgoing. All other
nationalities do precisely the same,
both here and elsewhcic, and will
undoubtedly continue to do so.
PETITION RELATING TO ASIATIC
The morning papers contain the
text of a petition, intended to be
presented to the Legislature, bj' the
Anti-Asiatic Union. The potion as
a v. hole is made up of 18 minor
prayers or articles. -Some of these
say some peculiar things and others
ask for impossible grants.
In Article 9, refeiring to licences
to Asiatics for following pursuits
"which are obnoxious or dangerous
to public health or safety," bakers
and butchers are mentioned. Bread
and beef, it appears, are "obnoxious
or dangerous to public health or
safety." Horse flesh and taro may
be the correct diet ; Init this is only
a cuess, for the document is not ex
plicit on this point.
In Article 7 the Legislature is
asked to enact that tho cuiploj'cr of
Asiatic labor shall be allowed to pay
into the hands of his employee a
small portion only of his (the em
ployee's) earning, "sufficient for his
maintenance," the balance being
handed over to the custody of Gov
ernment until the engagement has
terminated and the employee is
about to leave the country. What
if the man has a wife and children
in his native land, dependent on him
for support? lie cannot send them
any money, for he is only allowed
sufficient for his own maintenance.
Then if he wants to spend his earn
ings in the country, he cannot do
so. He must take it out of the
Kingdom before he is allowed its
use. A very good method of drain
ing away the cash, to be sure. Rut
what man will accept employment
on such terms?
The 10th Aiticle asks "that no
Asiatic, after once being bankrupt,
be allowed to own any mora inter
ests in any other licensed business."
How is it to be prevented? The
hare has to be caught before it can
be cooked, and the "interest" has
to bo discovered before it can be
stopped. A Chinaman may have,
an interest in a dozen different busi
nesses at the same time, but by what
means can the Government ascci tain
and prove the fact.
This petition is :i document w)iich
lcquircs considerable mending be
fore an intelligent Legislature can
grant its prayer.
SHOULD A PUBLIC SERVANT HAVE
A PRIVATE BUSINESS?
Editor Rui.i.utin: In the inter
ests of his employers, the Public,
I reply, certainly iiot. Rut is it not
a notorious fact that a public ser
vant need not keep a store or an
office and yet carry on a most ex
tensive private business? 1 think
tho sooner deputy sheriffs are given
to understand that they aie paid by
the public to perform public duties
only, the better it will be for all
The picture of a Deputy Sheiiff
running about as the agent of some
professional dun in Honolulu, with
a packet of bills for collection, en
quiring for Dick, Tom a?id Ilauy is
undignified, brings him fiupioperly
into conflict with tho public whom
he is paid lo serve, and whose time
ho is using for his private gain. I
hope tho Attorney-Gencial will en
force the spiiit of 'the law on these
officials. We have judges nnd law
yers for such work. Yours,
The following is n translation of
an editorial article which appeared
in the "Elelo" last Saturdny niorn-
The public nro considerably exer
cised ovor tho formation in our
midst, of an Anti-Asiatic Union, tho
membership of which oiganteation
is, we aro told, about eight
hundred stroug. Various minors
have been iu circulation, regard
ing the objects of this Union.
Some hnvo said, It was a move
ment against the planting interest ;
some have also said that the inten
tion was to drive the Chinese now
living here from the country. Such
we are assured, is not the case on
the contrary, the Union feel dis
posed to assist the planter in getting
all the labor he wishes to employ.
And again the Union do not desire
lo drive a single Chinaman who is
now a resident of the Hawaiian
Kingdom from the Islands. This
wo know to be a fact. What the
Ami-Asiatic Union propose lo do is
this: they propose to petition tho
coming Legislatuie to pass a law,
prohibiting and stopping any fur
ther Asiatic immigration into this
country. Thoy claim if the "vag
rancy Act" were put in operation as
it should be, there is sufficient labor
in the country to supply the demand
of our planters, if not, and the
planteis should lequire more labor,
the Government should supply the
demand, holding the planter respon
sible at the end of his labor con
tract, lo either renew his contract
with his laborers or to return them
to the Government, to be sent by
them to their homes. This is what
the Union wants. It thinks, too,
that when the planter learns, what
poverty and tribulation he is caus
ing the while and native mechanic,
retail mcichunt and laborer, by
throwing his Asiatic laborers, after
the expiiation of their contract,
upon the niaikol, to compete with
white men who have large families
to support, children to educate,
taxes lo pay, and the various neces
saries to buy, to lead an honest and
uptight life, he (the planter) as a
man and a Christian, will come to
the aid of the Anti-Asiatic Union
and give his hearty suppotl to con
trol this unncessary immigration.
