MR. W. 0. SMITH AND THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL.
According to our reporter, the
Hon. AV. O. Smith wanted to know
in the Legislature "what lighting
private houses with electricity had
to do with developing the resources
of the country, and he questioned
the wisdom of borrowing money for
any such purpose, particularly when
private parlies were ready and wait
ing to get a franchise to light the
town." That was a poser. The
legislators and the spcctal ors btood
Mr. Smith believes, no doubt, as
every man acquainted with the first
principles of Constitution::! Govern
ment believes, that the Government
should attend strictly to works of a
public nature and works that tend
to develop the country, and leave
the baking, butchering and candle
furnishing to tradespeople. And
he could not see what giving a man,
in exchange for coin, a different
kind of light in his (the man's)
hack kitchen, which is purely a mat
ter that concerns the man and his
family, has to do with the public
welfare or the development of the
resources cf the country. Mr.
Smith, you arc evidently a short
sighted man, just as bad as some of
your neighbors, and even the be
nighted and stomach-deranged edi
tor of the Bui.lutik!
Perhaps Mr. Smith, like the Bui.
letix, might have been led to admit
that there was some excuse for tho
Government going into the "light
ing" trade if private parties were
not prepared to do anything, but
knowing that private parties were
"ready and waiting" to furnish citi
zens in their houses with all the
light they ,need, at as low a figure
as the Government proposes to
charge, he could not admit it for
one moment. Mr. Smith entrench
ed himself in a strong position,
which for a time seemed impregna
ble. Perhaps he thought so. We
certainly thought so.
But no sooer had the honorable
gentleman resumed his scat, than
up there arose a giant from the
frozen regions of Canada, His Ex
cellency the Attorney-General, and
came upon poor Mr. Smith like the
waves of the sea ; as the Assyrians
came down upon the cohorts of Pa
tagonia, even so he visited the sins
of tho previous speaker with a
mighty host of twaddle, armed to
the teeth with ridiculous nonsense,
and swept AV. O. from off his scat,
and with him was demolished his
position, and both were carried in
the crash heels over head on to the
floor, and so remained in articulis
mortis from the opening of the
House even unto tho closing thereof.
The reporter aforesaid says that
"he (the Attorney-General) spoke
of several cities where the Govern
ment controlled tho gas works ; and
in some countrips bakciics, browcr
it, etc., arc controlled by the Gov
ernment. This was a proposition
"(lighting private .houses with elec
tricity) "to give to the Government
an income of about 28 per cent, on
the outlay, and thus reduce the cost
of supply to the consumers."
If wc had happened along just at
that time we could have materially
assisted the Attorney-General by
reciting some personal experiences
among the Zulus and Ashantccs in
South Africa, and of having seen
the heads of Government among
those highly civilized tribes trading
in dead men's teeth. A splendid
precedent for the enlightened Ha
waiian Government! Jt is not too
late now to offer u few suggestions
that may prove of incalculable

As the Allbrncy-Gcucral scorns (o
think that bakeries and breweries arc
good businesses for Government, wo
beg to inform him that a bakery has
recently been advertised to let, not
far from tho Government House,
known as the Singer bakery. If
not already taken, this is a splendid
site. It is conveniently situated,
only two or three minutes' walk
from Government house. The Min
ister can l tin out between times to
see that the batch does not get
burnt. The Attorney-General's
bread will serve as nice dessert to
the Minister of Interior's poi. The
two portfolios might join issues, and
do the cooking by electricity.
We know of no brewery in the
market, but there is centrally sit
uated saloon, whore the products of
breweries arc dispensed retail, and
doing a nourishing trade, that might
possibly be got for a reasonable
consideration the Union Saloon.
The proprietor has recently erected
a "folly" at AVaikiki, so that he
may be willing to part with tho town
property. Then, too, in this estab
lishment, cocktails, which arc very
much in favor, and on which there
is a big profit, may be served out,
as well as beer, to customers, lie
sides, Mr. 1J. French, "a prominent
member of the bar," is already in
stalled, and ho might be induced to
take a retainer to continue the busi
ness, with the understanding that
beer and cocktails shall bo "frank
ed" to Ministers and Members.
There is money in it "23 per cent.
on tho outlay," without fail, and a
reduction in "the cost of tho supply
to the consumer," especially to all
who support tho motion.
We merely offer the forugoing as
suggestions in the interests of tho
bread-and-beer policy of the Attor
ney-General. If they arc consider
ed of no account, they can be
thrown aside. AVe have done our
Really, it is surprising that tho
Attorney-General, an Anglo-Saxon,
a race which prides itself upon its
aptitude for drawing a line between
the duties of Constitutional Govern
ment and the avocations of subjects,
should attempt to offset the sound
conclusions of Mr. Smith by such
precedents and examples as have
long been discarded by an innume
rable company of statesmen who
have forgotten more than the Attorney-General
knows or ever will
know. The only treatment for all
such propositions is ridicule.
WHY THAT TROUBLED G0RP0R0
SITY. The "corporosity," (whatever
that may mean) of the editor of the
Bulletin is, according to Minister
Thurston, in a condition of suffer
ing gastritis, perhaps. No wonder.
The poor editor being a man of
peace and quietness, and preferring
rather to run than fight any day, lias
tried his hardest, lo ! for these many
weeks past, to keep on friendly terms
with the "grand young man" and
his numerous disciples which blindly
follow his lead, by bolting by the
bucketful such an alarming mixture
of deleterious crude compounds,
which the Minister with the best of
intentions has been imposing upon
the Legislature the Mother Sciglc
Syrup of Hawaiian stalemanship,
bottle and all that his (the editor's)
"corporosity" has become deranged,
and obstinately refuses to digest
auy more of the same class of raw.
preparations. It is not his fault.
He cannot help it. The "corporo
sity" of an editor is not so strong
as that of a Minister: it is not forti
fied by a tonic of $400 a month.
"Wish it was.
Minister Thurston believes that
"ail the money available should be
spent on the roads." That is n
wholesome morsel. It agrees per
fectly with tho Bulletin editor's
"corporosity." Can swallow it by
it by the thankful and digest it by
the ton. Not a single unpleasant
sensation follows. In fact, wc go
farther than the Minister, and say
that as much money as possible
should ho made available for roads,
by keeping it out of poi factories,
house lights, and all other private
enterprises. Roads, bridges, and
wharves arc unmistakably public
Norks, which should hnvo tho first
and main attention of Government,
particularly in ft now country like
this. The Bullion im9 been urir-
ing this doctrine for years past, and
will never get its ''corporosity"
deranged by Ministerial over-activity
in that direction.
Minister Thurston is reported to
have said at the time that ho diag
nosed tho Bulletin's "corporosity, "
that ho "was socialist enough to ad
vocate tjmt the Government should
tako charge of and operato railroads,
gaslighting, telegraphs," etc.
Tliis is where tho gentleman's
inexperience and shop-keeping no
tions overcloud his statesmanship,
and cause bun to mix up private
enterprises with public works.
Highways and the work required
upon them belong to the Govern
ment. AVhon railroads take the
place of highways or partially take
their place, it may he proper that
they should be Government pro
perly and under Government man
agement. Telegraphs in certain
countries and under certain con
ditions may bo regarded in tho
same light. But lighting people's
dwellings or places of business with
gas, clccliicity, ets., belongs dis
tinctly to another class of benefits,
and should undoubtedly, as a rule,
be left to private enterprise. Why?
Because it is admitted by everybody,
that the people, having the light of
candles, kerosene, etc., which no
Government thinks of furnishing,
have already all the light that is
really necessary. Any superior
class of light is simply a luxury,and
not a necessity, oven for sanitary
purposes. And Government is not
established and taxes arc not levied,
for furnishing people with luxuries
in their homes. Therefore, when
our Government undertakes to fur
nish light for private use in Hono
lulu, it oversteps its proper pro
vince. It must in candor be confessed
that there is one circumstance in
connection with the proposition to
light the private houses of Honolulu
with electricity which has a some
what modifying effect: tho Govern
ment has already a system in opera
tion for lighting the public streets
a proper Government undertak
ing and an extension of this sys
tem is all that is required to furnish
private lights. It is not like enter
ing upon nu entirely new venture.
This much wc allow, but even here
arc offsetting facts and circum
stance."., further notice of which is
deferred for tho present.
It is always within the province
of Government to regulate, lo a
certain extent, private euterpiises
that are conducted tinder a Govern
ment charter fixing a maximum to
charges for electric light, for in
stance. Minister Thurston should under
stand that the editor of the Bulle
tin has been acting the part of a
sincere friend, by laboring assidu
ously to induce him to "walk in the
way he should go," and when the
former places a sum of money on
the estimates to build the latter a
marble monument, the Bulletin ex
pects that a grateful country will
record thereon the services of this
sheet in the paths of peace and
"Our evening contemporary says
that the Legislature is 'enough to
make a sick monkey squirm.' Judg
ing from our neighbor's recent edi
torials, that cntl has been accom
plished," So says the "Advertiser."
And judging from our neighbor's
editorials of this morning, an effect
similar to that produced by the Le
gislature upon the BiJLiXTiN,has been
produced by the Buu.utin upon the
"Advertiser." In other words, the
Legislature makes a sick monkey
squirm, and that sick monkey makes
another sick monkey squirm.
Thanks, neighbor, for the correc
tion about tho currency bill. It was
real kind of you. Shall be pleased
