NON-INTERFERENCE OF GOVERN
MENT IN ENTERPRISES OF
A PRIVATE NATURE
The United States is a country
remarkable for abstinence from
ami non-interference with intcprises
of a private nature. The principle
laid down and acted upon 03 the
Government, is to abstain from all
undertakings winch are indicated by
their nature as properly belonging
to private cnterpiisc; at the same
time standing out of the way, to al
low private individuals and companies
as free scope as possible, to under
take and prosecute enterprises of
any nature or to any extent, not
detrimental to the public inleiest;
and also ghing special encourage
ment, if need be, to enterprises of
a kind calculated to be of great
public benefit, as in the case of the
first railroad across the Rocky
Mountains, connecting the Atlantic
with the Pacific, in which large
grants of waste lands were given as
an incentive to the undertaking.
This principle of the United States
Government, to which its policy con
forms, is considered sound and w isc
by experienced and piaetical states
men of other countries, as well as
by those of the American Republic.
And so pretty much the same policy
has been adopted in all Uiitisli con
stitutional colonics, whose begin
nings were similar to that of the
now Great Republic.
The wisdom or ioolislinesrf of any
policy is always best demonstrated
by its effects. What has buen the
effect of the American policy? A
growth, a progress, a development
comparatively and obsolulcly 1111
parallcd, in a given time, by any
country where the opposite policy
has prevailed. This is a fact loo
universally admitted to require
proof. What then is the inevitable
inference? That the American po
licy is sound and wise.
In view of the foregoing, is it not
surprising that in Hawaii, where
Americans constitute the greater
part of the white foreign population,
and where American ideas and me
thods in general predominate, the
tendency of Government seems to
be to experiment in distinctly private
interprises? Jlence, the Hawaiian
Government at one time did the
steamboating between the islands,
and later built a marine railway for
hauling up for repairs the ships of
the Pacific. Bui il may be here said
that the Ministers of those days were
wiser apparently than those of the
present generation ; for they ultim
ately sold out the steamboating busi
ness, and handed over the marine
railway to private management. The
towing of vessels in and out of
Honolulu harbor has been and $till
is done by the Government. A
wash-house, which is leased in sec
tions to Chinese washermen, is
another Government institution.
The present Ministers seem espe
cially anxious to do what in America
and by enlightened statesmen in any
free country would be left to private
enterprise, and the Legislature, or a
majority of that body, is ready to
back them up. Recently the Minis
ter of the Interior brought in a bill
to authorise the Government to con
struct a poi factory for hire, and the
House was on hand to pass it. The
same Minister now proposes to pro
vide the people of Honolulu with
electric light for private use, and
four out of five members of a com
mittee of the IIouso have rcpoitcd
that they "have looked into the
matter, and regard it a wise expen
diture." The Minister "estimates
that by the addition of 0110 50-light
dynamo and two 500-light incandes
cent dynamos, the prollt to the Gov
,crnmcnt will be $ 1,900. At a total
cost of 841,054 instead of an out
lay of $8,000 per annum for run
,niDg expenses there will be nil nu-
mini income of about $1,0G0.''
Therefore four members of U10 com
niittcc favor the proposition for llio
Government to supply the people
with private light.
If tho Ministers had shown that a-
profit of $1,!)G0 would accrue lo tlie
Government fiom keeping a dry
goods "establishment, or a gioccry
stoic, or a coffee shop, no doubt the
committee would have considered
the necessary cash to open business
"a wise expenditure," and we should
have had tho head of the Interior
Department wrapping up brown
paper paiccls and serving out cups
of coffee, at a salary of $5,000 a
AVo dot agree with the Minister
or with the four committeemen, be
cause house-lighting, whether with
kciosene, gas, electricity, or any
other illuminant, is purely a
piivatc matter, and should there
fore be left to private enter
prise. Street-lighting is one thing
and house-lighting another. Cer
tain clashes of private enterprises,
which arc calculated lo be of gene
ral benefit, may be encouraged and
assisted by Government subsidies,
but should never, unless under ex
ceptional circumstances, be under
taken by the Government. Such
exceptional circumstances do not
exist here in regard lo this matter,
for private enterprise is ready and
willing to supply the people of Ho
nolulu with all the electric light
they can wish in their houses, and
would have done so ere Ibis had the
Government not been in tho way.
It is dillleult to understand why
our Government appeals so willing
and anxious to undertake those du
ties which in a strictly politic and
economic sense arc entirely beyond
the range of its supervision. "Whcie,
out of Russia and other despotic
countries, is the Government regard
ed as a laundry-keeper, a manufac
turer, a ship-lower, or a lamp
lighter? Only in Honolulu. And
we would rather the Government
would keep its fingers out of such
paltry matters heic. Wo aie not
asking it for poi-liouscs or electri
city. Why should it lie so anxious
lo force them on us. We do not
aslc the Government to plant our
cane, or grind our sugar, or repair
our watches, or build our houses, or
pay our debts. Messrs. Rishop &
Co. and Messrs. Sprockets & Co. do
not insist that the Ministry shall
manage their banks, reduce the rate
of interest, or recommend names for
overdraft. The editor of the Rin.
i.irix does not express grief or in
dignation thai the Minister ol Inte
rior absolutely refuses to write lead
ing articles for his paper ; nor do
the subscribers conveit themselves
into a tuiiiultiioiib deputation, urg
ing the Attorney-General to 1 educe
the amount of the monthly subset ip
tion, as excessive, unjust and ut
terly ruinous to the people. Is'olh
ing of the kind: no such lcquisi
tions have hitherto emanated from
the people of Honolulu.
In conclusion, we suggest, with
profound respect, to Ministers and
Members, that their duties lie in
another direction than poi factories,
light-vending, or sausage-selling.
Be kind enough, gentlemen, lo get
out of such callings as quickly as
possible, and attend to your own
legitimate occupations. Avoid spe
culative expenditure of public mon
eys, and be sure ever to avoid all
undue interference with hazardous
private enterprises, which energetic
people arc always willing lo attempt,
butfrom which a Constitutional
Government is peremptorily bound
to abstain. Remember, gentlemen,
that when leaving your stores, or
your law practice, or whatever line
of occupation you were brought up
to, for the cares of Slate, you must
shake off the old Adam, leave the
unclean muck ol merchandise upon
the door-mnt and tho sharp practice
of the law ofllcc along with it. Look
as wise as you know how, and as
honest as the dUllcully of the opera
will permit. Never at any timo for
got that the lofty seats which you
proudly occupy should not ho made
a rostrum for tho sale of light or In
citers, at HO per cent, profit, and re
ject any attempt lo attain popularity
or plunder by a reckless expendi
ture. ofthe people's hardly-earned
money upon experiments projected
by iguoianco or corruption.
