AN UNSOUND ARGUMENT.
The argument that "it 13 profita
ble, there is m'one3' in it," used by
the Government in support of sonic
of its mcasurei, is no new one; il
has been inherited from previous
administrations, but has become a
little intensified perhaps by a mix
ture with new blood. lt seems to
be a somewhat popular u'guincnt in
this country. "Wo remember that
one of the strong pleas made for
licensing opium was, that it would
be the means of a coiisic'erablc re
venue to the country, that there was
money in it for the Givcrnment.
The same argument has been used
in stipport of the liquor 1 raffle. Cor
respondents have harped upon it in
the columns of the Bui.-, ktik until
the "sick monkey" lnu squirmed.
Lately the old argumei t has been
rehashed in the House ind on the
streets, as a "clincher" in favor of
certain Government proj cts. Nei
ther its antiquit3r, its plausibility,
nor its popularity satisfies, us of its
A merchant, a shop-keeper, a
lawyer, a printer, or any other class
of tradesman or profcs-ional man,
keeps his business or practises his
profession primarily for the sake of
gain or profit. He may, by his bus
iness or by his profession, supply a
.public want or confer a 1 iiblic bene
fit ; but that is not lii intention,
only in so far as it will prove mutu
ally beneficial to himself. He is
not actuated by purely philanthro
pic motives, with himself left out of
consideration. He serves the pub
lic for his own emolument, and when
the emolument ceases the "dear
public" may "whistle" in vain for
his scivices. Tins is "business"
the world over, and this is how the
world understands it.
But a Government is not a busi
ness fifm nor the superintendent of
a professional ofiicc. Government
(in a constitutional country) is from
the people, and is purely for the
benefit of the people, irrespective of
the Government. It is entrusted
by the people with the protection of
life and property, and the perform
ance of various matters in which the
people in general are interested.
The people furnish the money, both
for the pay of tho officials constitut
ing the Government, and for effect
ing the ends entrusted to it. Tliis
money is not given to the Govern
ment for the purpote of "invest
ment," from which it if required to
return a profitable interest; but for
expenditure" in the interest of the
public welfare. The "interest" re
quired and expected by the people
on the outlay, is tho public benefit.
Tlio only legitimate "intciest" to
the Government is enhanced ability
and willingness on the part of the
people to pay taxes, and an increase
of tax-payers and of the value of
THE MILITARY BILL
The King's veto is based on the
following seven' reasone :
1. The number of tho King's
Guard is too small by at, least twen
i 9. Tho term of enlistment nf three.
years is too short.
3. Precedence is given by the bill
to companies not entitled by senior
ity. 4. Tlio bill provides for trial and
punishment of deserters by Police
Courts, and not by Courts Martial.
5. The bill does not allow tlio
iKing's Guard a voice in tho election
ot the Colonel.
6. There ought to lie no salary for
tho Colonel, on groumlbof economy.
7. Section 12 of tho bill, by
which tho military forces and ox-
pcndlturcs, are subject to the orders
of the Minister of foreign Affairs,
who by consent of tho Cabinet may
remove any commissioned oflloor
and reduce or disband all or any of
tho military forces, and may re-organize
tho same in case of disband
ing, is in violation of Aitielc 20 of
the Constitution making the King
Commander-in-Chief of tho Army
It is regretted by many that the
King has placed himself in opposi
tion to the Legislature and the Cab
inet on this subject. The Legisla
ture alone aic the judges of the ne
cessity of any military forces includ
ing the King's Guard itself.
The Constitution declares that
"The military shall always be sub
ject to the laws of the land." Art.
17. Tho2Glh Aiticle declares that
"No military or naval force shall be
organized except by the authoiity
of the Legislature." The 4th Sec
tion of the bill makes tho King,
"the Supremo Commander of all the
military forces of the Kingdom."
But tliis does not permit him to gov
ern them except under the forms of
law as prescribed by tho Legisla
ture. Neither the Sovereign of Eng
land, nor the President of the Unit
ed States has power to appoint or
dismiss officers of the army and
navy, except in the forms prescribed
by law. The annual Act of the
British Parliament, called the Mu
tiny Act, was made for such short
duration in order to prevent the
Crown from exercising control over
the military forces against the con
sent of Parliament, or against the
liberties of the people. It is gene
rally conceded that "the refusal of
King Charles I to give his approval
to the bill for regulating the Miltia,
in February, 1G-I2, led by rapid
steps to the Civil War." Taswell
Langmead's English Constitutional
History, page (512. The illegality
of raising or keeping a standing
army within the Kingdom in time of
peace exec pt with consent of Parlia
ment, is expressly declared by the
Bill of Eights. This declamation
has been regulaily repeated in the
the Mutiny Act, passed for the first
time in 1GS8, for one year only, and
annually repeated ever since. Even
William III was compelled to send
home his pet Dutch Guards.
Congress makes the laws which
govern and control the United States
army and navy, prescribing and re
gulating the number of troops, pre
cedence and rank of officers and of
different arms of the service, pay
and rations, manner in which officers
shall be appointed and dismissed
and penalties and modes of trial for
military or other offences. The
same thing is done by Parliament
concerning the Ibilish Army.
Whatever the Legislattuc may do
about a military organization, it can
never for one moment rehnguish its
constitutional right to control and
legulatc all the matters here men
tioned. PORTUGUESE LETTERS.
Ennon Bulletin : Undoubtedly
the Portuguese are very thankful to
you for the intcrc&t you so kindly
took, by sending your reporter to
interview Mr. Wundcnberg, Po-t
master-General, about the Portu
guese letter affair.
I never had the slightest idea that
Mr. Desha was such an expert at
reading Portuguese names, as you
assure us in your item of Friday ;
I am very glad to know it and 1
congratulate the gentleman, if such
is the case.
But, Mr. Editor, allow me, please,
lo ask you if your reporter is another
expert, or else how could he know
that Mr. Desha's reading (without
hesitation) tho Portuguese names
was correct? You say there was
present a Portugucso gentleman,
but you say also that he was amongst
those who could not read the Portu
guese addresses ; therefore he could
not have been the judge of Mr.
Desha's correctness, and it stands to
reason that your reporter was the
And now, Mr. Editor, even sup
posing it truo that Mr. Desha is
such an expert as you make him, it
is not true at all, that the delivery
of Portngucso letters is done only
by Mr. Desha, as your reporter is
I fail to sec why there was such
an excitement among tho Post Oilico
clerks Friday, when they rend
the letter published in tho "Advcr
lser," as tho writer was perfectly
justlncd in usking our Poslniaster-
Genoral to appoint a Poitugtiese
clerk, and it 1b not only just and
right to have one in Unit department,
as also in other depart menu. They
arc entitled to government populous,
which they can fill, as well as any
oiner loreigners in tnc country.
And till this in no way reflects on
thu present personnel of tho Post
Oilico who aro all gentlemanly and
ttentivo as could bo wished.
It was thought iit this Post Oilico
Friday that the writer in the
"Advertiser" was fishing for the
position, but Mr. Editor, neither he,
nor I are Ashing for suclt position ;
if wo ever fish for a government
billet, we will not bo satisfied with
anything less than Well,
Gotnething big anyhow.
In answer to the above we would
say, yes, our reporter is an expert
at reading Portuguese is n dabster
at reading anything and everything,
including Chinese and ancient Cop
tie. The Portuguese gentleman,
too, was a competent judge, for al
though ho failed to niako out the
address in the first instance, ho saw
it clearly enough after it had been
read by Mr. Desha. Wo are de
lighted to find that our interest in
the matter is appreciated. But
don't mention it. We arc working
for tho "dear public" all the time!
Editor Bcllutix: Is it true that
recently, white a case was pending
in the Police Court against four Jap
anese for gaining, the Japanese
Consul in collision with police
authorities had (hit two principals
deported against their wills? Mr.
Kaultikou is understood to have
made n statement somew hat to this
effect in the Police Court. If il is
the fact, had the Polite Justice not
a right to commit all local olllcials
concerned for contempt of Court,
and lay complaint otherwise with
the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
With this transaction and a recent
shipping case managed by another
foreign consulate, does it not appear
as if there was a good deal of extra
ten ilorial jurisdiction by consuls
here as well as in Japan. Jusucn.
"On enquiry, we find that there
is some foundation for the story,and
hope ere long to furnish our corics
pondent with particulars. Eu.J
