AN UNWISE ARRANGEMENT.
The Atlornej'-Gencial of this
Kingdom is not only the legal ad
viser of the Government and Ctown
piosecutor; the duties of his office
also embrace purely executive work
in addition to his legal functions.
This we believe to be an unwise ar
rangement, not conducive to the best
possible results. The two things
the legal and tho executive func
tions do not woik well together.
At all events, older and greater
countiics than Hawaii act on this
assumption, aud more experienced
and abler statesmen than our great
men hold to this view.
The Attorney-General as legal
adviser of the Gocrnmont holds a
position of the highest importance.
"Wrong advice from him may at any
tinio involve the Government and
country in disastrous difficulties,
which sound advice would secure
the avoidance of. Besides this, it
is his duty also to see that all Gov
ernment measures for legislative
consideration aud enactment are in
proper legal form, arc constitu
tional, are in harmony ith existing
laws which arc not intended to be
abrogated, etc. Then comes the
work and responsibility of Crown
prosecutions j no light matter if
properly attended to.
Tho foiegoing duties are enough
to place on the shoulders of any one
man, even if ho has the assistance
of an able deputy, and to perfoim
them thoroughly and efficiently will
require his entiio time and full at
tention. Then il is unwise and
detrimental to the public service to
put other duties upon him, and it
should never be done, no matter
who occupies the position.
Tho American papers givo con
siderable space to the discussion of
"trusts." An oil trust and a sugar
trust nie living facto, and other
possible trusts are spoken of.
The trust idea has its advocates,
and it has its opponents. Those
who, from boing pecuniarily inter
ested hope to derive pecuniary pro
fit, are naturally its advocates.
Those who tuc not to interested,
which menus tho masses, who are
tho consumers of the trust commo
dities, and huve to pay increased
prices, arc naturally its opponents.
From the standpoint of the former,
trusts arc good. In tho lew of tho
latter, trusts are bad.
A trust, as wo understand it, is a
combination for tho purpose of
monopoly. The old word mono
poly being well understood, and tho
meaning plainly conveyed by it be
ing offensive, a new word, or an old
word with a new acceptation, is sub
stituted, as not being offensive,
because unfamiliar and not well
A monopoly is not always bad,
but monopolies generally are. When
a monopoly is not used to compel
the consumer to pay a higher price
than allows the seller n fair and
reasonable profit, it is not bad ; but
when a monopoly is taken advantage
of to exceed that limit, it is bad.
Wlicther tho oil men and tho sugar
refiners arc using their trusts to en
rich themselves by selling at prices
wuicn bring tnem inoie limn a
reasonable profit, we do not know ;
but we suspect they are.
THE MILK TRUST.
Considering that our intercourse
with foreign countries is mainly with
the United States, where "trusts"
arc booming, it would not be sur
prising if the contagion reached us.
It is not one of those ailments which
may be kept out by quarantine
regulations. In fact, it appears to
be already in tho Honolulu air, and
to have tainted the brains of some
We have heard for several days
past considerable talk of a "milk
trust." Piobably the authois of
the scheme do not call it by that
name, and may object to the use of
the term, but the public arc pleased
to employ the word, believing it to
be apropos, and they cannot be
made to quit talking about the
It is publicly known that two of
our principal milk dairies lately
merged into one ; that is, one was
bought out by the other, and the
two establishments, previously in
dependent of each other, have be
come the property and are urder
the control of one company. More
recently the same company, it is
said, nnd we believe truly, has
made arrangements to purchase, or
is making anangements to purchase,
in bulk, the milk of other dairies, so
as to control the milk supply of the
town, and raise the pi ice.
Of couisc, the consumers strongly
object to this arrangement, or its
consequence to them in the shape of
dear milk, and utter their dissatis
faction, pretty freely. The combin
ation or "trust" in itself is nothing
to them, but a rise in the price of
milk is, and as the rise is caused
by the trust, the trust is execrated.
If the same company seemed the
control of tho entire milk supply of
the country, or the world for that
matter, the people of Honolulu
would not care two straws were the
ptice to them not affected thereby;
but the price is affected, to the ex
tent of a two-cent increase at one
jump. Hence the dissatisfaction
A question or two here present
thcmselvs,not to the thoughtless but
to the leilective: Is the price now
charged exorbitant, in the sense of
giving the company more than a
leasonahle profit? Was the former
price a losing or an ' unprofitable
one? Was the increase necessary
in order to a fair piofit? These are
questions we are unable to answer,
for we are not in the milk business.
The company above referred to, tho
Woodlawn Dairy and Stock Com
pany, answers for itself in a notice
to its customers, as follows: "After
an experience of four years we find
that milk cannot be supplied from
grain-fed cows at present rates with
any profit, and therefore notify you
of an advanco of two cents per
quait fiom Apiil 1st." How about
those dailies of the trust where cows
are not grain-fed?
Now, no man can be expected to
continue any enterprise without a
profit? People arc not so unselfish as
to engage in any business purely for
the public good. Personal gain is
always the primary object. Whether
a man supplies the public with
clothing, or food, or coffee, or milk,
or whisky, or a newspaper even, he
expects a profit, and it is unreason
able to expect him to piovide the
supply without a profit. But if he
wants more than is reasonable, the
public are justified in crying out.
And if the "milk trust" is woiking
on this lino tho community owes to
ilsolf tho duty of opposing it. Wo
ceitainly want no trusts to augment
the cost of living. Most of us think
it a little too high nheacly.
THE RIGHT KIND OF LEGISLATION.
A bill has been introduced into
the Iowa House of Representatives
to prevent dealers in petroleum aud
Us products, coal, lumber and Hn
seed oil from forming pools or trusts,
from doing business in the Bt&te.
This is tho kind of legislation the
pcoplo need and want. It is tho kind
ot legislation which thiottles a busi
ness nionter which is gradually
bearing down harder and harder
upon the industries and commercial
interests of the people and which if
not throttled now will become a
defiant as Is the polygomy ulcer
which disgracet the country, and
harder to control and put down
than the whiskey mob lias ever bn.
Compared w ith this danger to the
people'9 interest, all the opptession
of the railroads, even if all aie true,
sink into insignificance. We are
glad this bill has been introduced
and wil be sadly disappointed if it
does not become n law. We do not
think our legislators in either House
will dare vote it down. Cedar
