Mr. E. Muller, of the long-established

Haekfeld & Co. is about to take a
trip to his native land, Germany.
During that gentleman's eight or
nine years' residence in Honolulu
he has made many friends, all of
whom, realizing hw worth, bid adieu
with rcgiet. One evening last week
Mr. II. F. Glade gave u little party
of Mr. Midler's most intimate
friends, of whom there were about
two dozen present, to wish him good
bye. On Satin day night Judge
Widemann invited a number of
"cntleiiieii to meet Mr. Muller at the
British Club, for tho same purpose.
The time passed pleasantly and
cheeiily. the prospect of parting
being tempered by the hope of a re
union ere long. Another party is to

ANOTHER OLD RESIDENT GONE.
The death of Mr. James Smyth,
at Ulupalakua, on June 21th, in his
G3rd year, leaves another breach in
the ranks of the kauiaaiim's. Mr.
Smyth was horn in Londondciry,
Ireland, in 182.'i. lie came to this
country 1817, and was secretary to
tho British Legation under General
Miller. Subsequently he was in the
employ of the late dipt. Makee.
at llfupalaktia, where he remained
about 12 years. From theie he
went to Nil on Maui, and started a
goat Ranch. This not proving a
very lucrative cnturc he gave it up,
and went to the Huelo Plantation as
book keeper. From there he drifted
back to Ulupalakua where he died
as above stated, lie leaves a wife
and five children to mourn his loss.
THE LATE-J. SIEMSEN.
J. Siemsen was found dead on a
paddock to the seawaid of the jail
yesterday afternoon. He was lying
on his lace with a pistol under him,
and a bullet hole in tho lower part
of his left lireast. The body was
removed to the Station House, where
an inquest was held. A letter was
found which left no loom to doubt
that Sieniscn had taken his own life.
The jury returned a veidiot accoid
ingly. Siemsen came to the country
about :i0 years ago. Later he went
home to Germany and came back
again with a ship load of goods and
opened a store at Ililo with Mr.
Conway. Drifting with tbe title oi
circumstances, he was l educed from
a store keeper "and a sugar planter
to a common workman. For the
year last past he was witltout work.
He leaves a wifo and live children.

1 HARRY BYHC'S SHOW.
Mr. Harry Byng's show, at the
Opera House, on Saturday niglit,
was a fulfilment of his promise to
the public, in variety and conform
ity to the standard of imitation.
There was singing, dancing, and
playing the last word being used
in a double sense, as referring to
the manipulation of musical instru
ments and the acting of comedy.
They were all tlnec done creditably
well, and the people in the house
applauded most heartily. An un
usual abundance of public amuse
ments during tho last two or three
weeks past probably had the effect
of causing the attendance to be
smaller than it otherwise would have
been; for the audiencifwas not largo
in the lower pait of tho house, al
though upstairs was well tilled.
Harry woikcd hard to get up the
show, and he has the satisfaction to
know that those who patronized it
wero consideiably amused.

COLONEL SPAULDING'S VIEWS.
Edi roit Bli.i.ltik : Your very full
report of the crude remarks made
by me befoie tho Legislative Com
mittee, which you dignify by the
muiie of "a speech," seems to ini
poit to them an importance entirely
unanticipated ; and 1 feel that the
publicity you have given to the ideas
expressed by me requires that I
should make better explanation of
my views on tne uninese question
than was possible in the hasty and
unpremeditated lemarks before the
In the first place I am at a loss to
conceive why there should be any
astonishment at my agreeding, as a
suguar planter, with some of the
ideas expressed by the so called
Anli-A&iatie Society. So far as any
expression of views or wishes to cut
off the supply of Asiatic labor is
concerned, I have not and do not
agiee. But to the extent of freeing
Honolulu from the worse than use
less surplus of Chinese, now and for
a long time harbored within its limits,
I may say Unit I have been a strong
advocate for years, befoie any such
society was organized, and even be
fore many of its members came to
Again, 1 disclaim 11113 desire to
needlessly inlerfeie with the present
Constitution, or to eaielessly abio
gate or change any ot tins rules laid
down theicin. 1 respect that in
stiument as highly as an' man in
the country, and would not open tho
door for useless changes and inno
vation by establishing a precedent
of hasty legislation. But as I re
gard self preservation the first right
of man, so I deem the Constitution
but a compact for the better protec
tion of lights, to be changed when
ever those rights shall bu assailed.
All law is, or should be founded
on the will of the majority of the
voters in the community, and is, or
should bo established for the general
good. Special or class legislation is
repugnant to the ideas ami piiuciplcb
of free countries, and is a danger
ous expciiincnt even wliero the
divine right of Kings is tacitly ad
mitted. But the world is not sufll
cienlly advanced for theory and
practice to go hand in amid, and wo
aro sometimes obliged to protect
ourselves by laws that will not stand
the test of abstiact argumentation.
Wo may protect ourselves against
the mad-dog, or the sale of poisons,
by restriclirc laws; why not against
the daiice-hoiiho and Hie gin-mill?
So far, the only successful advanco
made against tliesu enemies to the
general good has been th-ough the
application of the power known as
"Local Option," and it is this power
or moans Unit I would recommend
to our Honorable Legislature.
If the piople of tho GrcatHopub
liu, or any of its slates, find that
they can by means of tTio powerful
force of Local Option grapple with
and overcome the monstrous hydra
intemperance that has so long stalked
through the laud, defying all laws
against the curse by tho cry of
"class legislation," shall we not also
by means of this 11101 11 1 power put
under foot the evil which turonleiis
tho security if not tho cxistenco of
That the unrestricted and practi
cally ungovcined existenco in our
midst of a largo number of ignorant
Chinese is an evil no one will deny.
But that the labor of these lower
classes on our plantations is neces
sary to the development and sup
port of our chief industry, and to
enable us lo compete with the
cheap labor of other sugar coun
tiics is also tine. We need the
manual labor of these classes,
accustomed as they arc to a liv
ing frugal but sulllcient for their
wants, but wo do not need
them in positions opposing or com
peting with our mechanics and others
who by their higher state of civiliza
tion form the necessary and funda
mental basis of our society. We
cannot afford to sacrifice the artizan
class of our society, from whose
ranks many of our best men and wo
men have sprung ranks that will
continue to furnish not only the
bone and sinuc but largely the
brains that the country will need
in order that the imitative Chinaman
may carry his habits of economy
into places that he fills only by
lowering to his own level.
I do not mean that all competi
tions should be withdrawn, and that
a poor carpenter should bo paid the
same wages as as a good one. I do
not for one moment believe in the
ruinous policy of so-called labor or
ganizations, where arbitrary de
mands are made on capital by labor.
It is a falac3' to suppose that capi
tal is opposed to labor. Capital
lives on labor, and would dio with
out it! I would protect both as far
as legislation can protect, but I
would not try to change the immut
able laws of supply and demand
that must ever govern trade.
In what way then shall wc pro
tect the mechanic, and at the same
time foster the industry upon which
we all more or less depend?
In answer 1 would respectfully
submit to our Honorable Legislature
that they should try all practicable
plans before attempting the danger
ous expedient of changing the Con
stitution. And one of these plans I
propose should be a more general
1 would not ask them to go so far
even as previous Legislatures have
gone, and say that licence should
be granted to suitable persons "ex
cept subjects of couutiies with
which we have no treaties." See
section 01, page 18, Compiled Laws
of the Hawaiian Kingdom.
I would leave the crantins of
licences to the Minister of Interior,
with the proviso that he maj' require
the approval of a certain proportion
of the voters in the district where
the licenco is desired, and I would
have all occupations or professions
licensed where sales are made or
services charged for, except the
laborer who works by the day or
month without any regular trade or
I would also recommend a special
licence to laborers, to be granted by
the judges of the various districts
for a nominal fee, and a law pro
hibiting tile employment of un
licensed laborers save where under
contract through the Board of Immi
gration. This would give something
like a registration of the laborers in
the country and tend to prevent
vagrancy, as the licence would be
good only for the district wliero
issued, and changes would not be
made save for good cause.
In short, I am convinced that the
licence system, applied to all, is the
only practicable and reasonable so
lution for the present question. The
Chinese cannot object to a licence if
all nationalities arc treated the
same, and a Chinaman cannot ex
pect the approval or tho recommend
ation of the voters of his district "if
they don't waut him." There aro
hundreds, if not thousands, keeping
small shops and "stands" that arc
not earning an honest living thereby,
and who could not get the approval
or recommendation of even tho best
of their own countrymen. To get
these people to work would be to
benefit the country, and if my plan
will not accomplish it, then I am in
favor of class legislation that will. I
do not believe in making this coun
try a Paradise for lazy Chinamen!
Now with the restrictive laws re
garding licence there would be no
objection to increasing the laboring
foicc of the country whenever found
necessary. And it needs but a casual
glance at ledgers of the plantations
to bhow that they need relief as
badly as tho mechanics of Honolulu !
Labor is to-day higher than it was
years ago when, without the treaty,
wo received more for our sugar than
we do now I If wo had not ad
vanced in machinery, etc., wo could
not run plantations on present prieo
for sugar, at present rales for wages!
Wo have added to our facilities for
manufacturing, etc., for tho benefit
of laborers who now receive wages
beyond all proportion as compared
witli the profits of the business.
Wc must havo a large amount of
cheap labor to cany on plantation
woik. Given tins, we can afford to
pay our skilled woikmen more and
divide our work. But while the
lowest class of woik requires to ho
paid for at exhorbilant rales, we
must cut and trim in every depart
ment to make both ends uiectl It
is notour fault if jo try to Hud a
way to cut down expenses when he
"lust hidr on the camel's back'' is
added by legislation that effectually
prevents our increasing our laboring
forco, an a dstriko among those wo
have for higher wages!
Now, if I have not shown you that
the grievance is the planter's, Instead
of the mechanic's, I have written in
vain! But, nil the same, I hope to
have the assistance of tho mechanics
in convincing our honorable Legis
lature that we need relief.
I admit tho charge of being pro
lix, and give you leave to amend,
for the benefit of your advertise
ments. I am yours truly,
Z. S, 'Spai.dino.
