WHERE IS THE DIFFERENCE?
Tho Judiciary Committee to
whom was referred the bill
introduced by Dr. Wight, to
prevent the taking of fish by explo
sives, did not like thnt measure.
They saw thnt it was worded in
a way calculated to work injury to
innocent persons, although Mich was
entirety foreign to the intention of
its author, and rejected it in toto.
A minority of the committee fiamcd
a bill of their own, as a substitute for
the rejected measure, and to fulfil
its intent. This new creation was
in due time brought before the
House, where it now is.
The committee's production is so
much like its predecessor, that an
"unlegal" mind cannot tell which is
which; like Barnum's two dogs,
the one which grew from a tail and
the one which grew a tail from a
stump, both tho dog of the tail and
the tail of the dog having been
drawn out by the application of a
wonderful ointment. The Doctor's
bill specified that "any party in
whose possession fish destroyed by
explosive substances are found shall
be adjudged guilty of having used
the same, and it shall be incumbent
on him to prove his innocence."
The Committee's bill says, "The
possession of fish killed by giant
powder or other explosive substance
shall be prima facie proof that the
person in whose possession such fish
were found used giant powtlc-, or
some other explosive substance, in
taking fish contrary to the provi
sions of this Act." "Where is the
difference? Lawyers, no doubt,
can find it immediately, but obtuse
newspaper scribbleis cannot. It
must be there, but we cannot see it,
any more than we can sec the differ
ence between a half-crown and two-and-sixpence,
or a quarter and
twenty-five cents. The first bill
adjudged guilty the party having
possession, and the second makes
possession prima facie . proof of
So that if a member of the Judi
ciary Committee goes to the fish
market, and unwittingly purchases
fish which some fisherman has taken
by the use of giant powder, lie may,
while on his way home, thinking of
the nice fish dinner in prospect, be
seized and dragged off to the Station
House by an oillcer of the law, lose
his fish, the money he has paid for
them, and his dinner, besides hav
ing to appear before Judge Dayton
for a breach of law. Having in pos
session fish illegally captured is,
according to the bill, prima facie
proof that he has illegally captured
them. A sufficient reason for, and
a justification of, his arrest.
AN IMPOLITIC AND UNJUST TAX.
For a good man3 years past this
country has been crying out about
increase of population. "We have a
country with inadequate population :
we want population. And yet the
country compels every comer who
comes to stay, to pay u feo of two
dollars beforo lie is pormittcd to
land. Other countries that are in
want of population offer induce
ments, some giving free grants of
land, others free passages, etc, Ha
waii has no wasto lands amounting
to anything, to give, and cannot bo
expected to pay people's passages ;
but might, if she wants people to
come, pnit the entrance fee. Thcro
is something peculiarly Hawaiian
about tills two-dollar tax which for
eigners do not like. A Hawaiian
prepares a birthday feast, to which
he invites his friends, nnd then
charges them with tho cost of the
feaBt and a little over for profit.
There is an clement of meanness,
too, about the pretence under which
tho tax is collected. Tho stranger
is told that it is "a hospital tax;"
from which ho naturally infers that
the hospital is open to him when he
is sick. But if ho should seek its
aid in need, ho will discover that his
two-dollar contribution to its funds
entitles him to no privilege, but
that ho has to pay for its "hospi
tality," if he is only there a day,
while tho native of the country,
who conliibutes nothing, is admit
ted, boarded, lodged, and treated
free of charge. Let us put it thus:
A man is iuvltcd to the country;
when he arrives ho is fined for com-
ing ; the fine is devoted to the main
tenance of a charitable institution
which lias no charity for him when
lie is in need.
Impolitic and unjust arc tho pro
per words to characterise this two
dollar tax, and policy and justice
demand its abolition. The llonot
ablc Noble Hitchcock, in his place
in the Legislature, has taken the
initiative in that direction. More
power to him 1 Probably some old
fossils will oppose the movo, but
lemomber, Jlr. Hitchcock, nine
tcnths of the community arc with
WHO SAID SO ?
Now, who said that "there is no
authority," (in the sense of prece
dent,)" for governments taking upon
themselves what would seem at first
sight enterprises essentially private
in their nature?" The Bui.i.ktin
did not, although the "Gazette" ap
parently intimates thnt we did.
Authorities by the dozen can be
cited for governments running opera
houses, pensioning actresses, manu
facturing porcelain, blowing beer,
selling tiipu, peddling dogs meat,
and innumerable other small-beer
transactions; but the Bi'i.li:tix
wanted to know, and still wants to
know, "where, out of Russia and
other despotic countiics," docs a
government include. such occupations
among its daily duties? A govern
ment which boasts of being "of the
people, by the people, and for the
people," should not look to despo
tisms for its precedents. We will
concede to our contemporary that
"the question whether the Hawaiian
Government shall undertake a parti
cular enterprise is one to bo settled
cntiiely on its merits;" but do not
concede that there is any merit in
the Hawaiian Government placing
the people's money in speculative
private enlcrpiises that .should bo
devoted to public works. This is
the point, and we shall have some
thing further to say upon it.
TAKE ME WHILE I AM If! THE
In tho discussion in the House
this mornftig as to whether tho bill
to abolish the oflice of Governor
should pass its third reading, or be
deferred until the other bill provid
ing for the discharge of the duties
of the Governors had been disposed
of, Noble Young favored the im
mediate passage on the ground that
"a bird in hand is woith two in the
bush." Noble Wideuiann intimated
the opinion that if tho House had
sunk so low as to appear in the
cbaraclor indicated by tho first
named Noble, its state was sad.
"Take mc" (the House) 'vhilc 1
am in the humor," wasMr. Young's
idea. Truly, if the Legislature is
of that peculiar character, its com
position is deplorable, and any
honorable man, who is a member,
may feci indignant at the suggestion.
Judge Widcmami voiced the feel
ings of any conscientious and
WHY ISAM AUCTIONEER TREATED
As long as other business people,
who are a necessity in any commu
nity, have to pay a licence fee for
the right to carry on business, thcro
is no reason why an auctioneer
should not do the same. But why
an auctioneer should be required to
pay 500 per annum for his licence,
while the wholesale ineichaut,
whose prolltH nro greater, pays less,
is not so appaicnl. And yet this
difference exists here in Honolulu.
Wo have two auctioneers, and they
pay lo the Government SiiOO a year,
for the permission U he an accom
modation to the community. Ituiail
storekeepers pay $.00 each and whole
sale dealers fiom SlOOupwaids. The
auctioneer has another tax to pay,
from which the merchant and the
shopkeeper arc exempt. He has to
deposit in the public money chest
one-half per cent, of his gross re
ceipts, giving a bond for tho lnith
ful fulfillment of this obligation.
There arc two things which we
should like to know the reason of:
first, why churgc tho auctioneer so
much more than other people for
his licence? nnd, second, why exact
r ffr?iraf; w-ctigfcgyseTgga
from the auctioneer the half por
cent, on gross receipts and from
other people's receipts nothing?
Thcro is also a fact bearing upon
this matter worthy of mention:
When tho Government has land,
leases, or anything else to sell at
auction, it usually entrusts the work
to an olllcial and forgoes the ser
vices of n licensed auctioneer, thus
cheating a commission out of the
man who pays a high llcenco and
losing the half per cent.
The law which imposes excep
tional burdens on auctioneers is one
of those unjust inequalities in our
slnlo system', which an enlightened
and progressive Legislature would
bestir itself to remove.
FROM lImFTO" CHIGLA.
a mm: ovi:n tiu: ouova uaimioad.
Mntucara is a little hamlet of pos
sibly three hundred people on a pla
teau of soveial acres in extent, and
this offers a convenient place for
one of the prioniptil stations of the
Being a mile and a half above sea
level we expected lo notice some of
the effects of the elevation, and wc
were not disappointed, for we found
that a quick walk would cause the
pulse to jump up fifteen or twenty
beats, and the breathing to become
long and haul. So we were content
with strolling around in a very quiet
As in every town in Pom, wc
found the church the largest build
ing, and here outside was a figure
of the Virgin, decorated with law
dry nbbous and tinsel, and with a
motley assortment of articles at her
feet, 'among them a skull, and a
couple of dice. We did not find
what was the signification of these,
and our "man of all wisdom" was
for once stuck.
Ucsides the railroad and the ho
tel, there are other evidences of civ
ilization in Matucara. In our stroll
wc cainu acioss a s-chool, which
reminded me very much of the en
gravings which illustrate Gold
smith's "De-oiteft Village," and
show tho school. The boys weie
bnghl-eycd little fellows ecmed
to be just the same as our boys at
homo, when a sti anger co.nes into
About 12:00 p. in. we loft Matu
cara on our trip lo Chicla, this time
ieelinir somewhat afiaid that we
would be troubled by tho deration.
On the way to Chicla, as well as
lower down before reaching Matu
cara, we had noticed the tei races on
the sides of the mountains some
times reaching clear lo tho top.
These were made by the Incas for
the purpose of gaining ground for
agriculture, and many oi the lower
ones aie still used lor that purpose
by the inhabitants. Advantage
would be taken of one little brook
coming down the mountain side for
irrigation, but it seems that the In
cas had aqueducts starting from
points further up the limine.
Fiom all that one can see, it
would appear that at one time these
hillsides must have been coven d
with fertile fields, and ihe Valley of
the Biniac between Lima and Chi
cla must have had a population of
several thousand. It speaks well
for the patient iudustiy of these an
cient people that they could thus
force a living from an unwilling soil,
though, it also suggests the same
thoughts as do the Pyramids, that
there may have been toiling inynads
whose whole existence was an un
ending lound of work for the bene
fit of a higher caste. At all events
here is a good place for Henry
Geoige to come with a colony. Be
yond doubt they can have the land
for the n.sling, and the terraces are
already constructed so that they
need only see to the irrigation.
In the part of tho load between
Matucara and Chicla, it is a con
stant repetition of tunnels, and zig
zags or V's for getting through the
rocks and climbing up the steep
mountain side. In many places one
could hardy help thinking that on
the first hiiivey, the engineers must
have said, "At last we are ballled;
we can't get beyond here," but it
has been dune. In one place they
found it would bo easier to put the
road right in the liver bed, so they
drovo a IuiiiilI, turned the river
thiough that, and then put the road
in the dry bed. Of course, the
river hero is not very large, only
about 20 ieet (IS metres) wide.
Ab we climb up, tho saino grand
panorama ot rugged peaks towering
licnvdiwnids is presented, nnd ns

a thousand people, and there arc
some houses of fair size and quite
an iinpc-iiig church. Pizurro's men
though their, lives were anything
but good, were certainly great
church builders, for every town has,
lor such places, u very decent edi
fice. The fields in those little valleys
are vory curiously shaped, never in
regular geometrical figures, but in
all soi ts of odd ones, separated by
walls of loose stones.
In somo places the trail or road
for horbus over the mountains, runs
quite near the railroad, and even
now it is used. In many places It
in very narrow nnd runs danger
