THE JUDICIARY COMKiTTEE FA
Three members of the Judiciary
Committee like passpoits. They
are averse to the abolition of the
passport system, which our neigh
bor, San Francisco, looks upon with
scorn nnd derision, and which every
man educated in a free country re
cards as a relic of barbarism and
despotism. The three members re
commend the Legislature uot to abol
ish the passport system. Young
men are generally supposed to be
progressive, but the young men of
the Judiciary Committee are not of
that class. They prefer holding on
to a custom which many years ago
was exploded in all free countries.
One of these gentlemen said in
the House the other day, when a
certain ruling of the President was
under discussion, something to the
effect that he felt sure the House
would support the Chair, because it
afforded an opportunity of "bitting
upon the Judiciary Committee,"
meaning, as we understood it, that
tho Legislature took a pleasure in
making such an ignoble, use of that
important committee. l?ntlier hard
on the committee, anil perhnpara
rather hard seat for the House. If
the committee is in fie. habit of
making such recomiucidations as
the one ancnt the passport system,
we cannot blame the House. It de
serves to be sat upon. Aud if the
House does not. sit uron the corn
tee's recommendation i ntil the life
is utterly and hopelessly crushed
out of it, the House deserves to be
sat upon by the people bo effectu
ally that it can never again essay
to legislate for a nation groaning
Tho three committeemen try to
make their recommendation appear
plausible, but in tho attempt floun
der about liko a whalo in shallow
water. They find that the passport
aystem "docs not operate as a hard
ship to any particular class of per
sons, excepting those with dishonest
purposes." If only those with
"dishonest purposes" wero required
to procure passports in order to
leave the country, there would be
eomo truth in the assertion. But
all persons nud classes have to pro
cure passports, which is a hardship
The honest man who pays hia
debts and owes nobody anything,
before ho can take a run over to the
Coast for business, pleasure, or
health, must first nsk and obtain
normUsion of the Government. If
he inadvertently omits to do so, he
is liable to he seized by olllcer9 of
tho law when the ship is leaving the
wharf and dragged ashore, while his
luggage proceeds on its journey
without molestation. If tbe honest
nnd law-abiding man wishes to send
his children over to the Coast to
school, he must go to the Govern
ment, procure permission, and pur
chase a passport for each. Either
as regards himself or his children,
tins nould probably not be felt as a
hardship by a man accustomed all
his life to Siberia; but to an Ame
rican or Englishman, who has not
been in this country long enough to
forget his own, it is an annoying
hardship, repulsive to his nature
and his education.
As to the passport being a hard
ship only to persons "with dishonest
purposes," in truth, those arc just
the individuals who evade the law,
and escape from the country with
out permission. But honest men,
unavoidably in debt, and unable to
procure employment whereby they
might earn the means to liquidate
their liabilities, have been kept in
the country and made a burden to
others, by the operation of the pass
poit law, when opportunities of
making a living and the means to
pay their debts offered elsewhere.
THE BOWLER AND MOORE
Judging from the discussion in
the House a few days ago, and again
this morning, regarding the Bon lei
and Moore claims, there appears to
be a determination on the part of
tho Government to ignore those
claims. For what reason is not ap
parent : at least, not to the general
public. So far as we can gather
from the biief outlines of the news
paper reports, no sufficient justifica
tion of the course adopted by the
Government has been presented.
The Minister of the Inleiior this
morning objected to tire amount, as
recommended by the Judiciary Com
mittee, being placed contingently
on the Appropriation Bill, on the
ground that that act would sticngth
en the claims. If the claims are for
work done according to contract,
by order of a former Government,
nnd this is our understanding of the
matter, no strengthening is required
in order to render them valid in the
judgment of a learned and just
judge. The Minister of Finance
could see no parallel between these
claims and those of the English
claimants, and while he consented
to the paymt nt of the latter he ob
jects to recognise the former. There
is nt least this analogy between the
two, and the Minister's vision can
not be so clouded as not to sec it,
that the local matter was as much
an obligation of tho Government
of the day as the foreign matter,
and when the present Government
came into office it inherited the re
sponsibility of both alike. There
was fairness and justico in the pro
position to have the committee's re
port printed and a day appointed for
its discussion, but neither one nor
the other in the com so hastily
adopted. A discussion would prob
ably have brought out the facts, and
justice would more likely have been
LOOK FIRST TO THE PRESENT.
It seems to be generally regarded
as the proper thing for benevolent
associations to make permanent in
vestment of fundi in their charge,
devoting only the interest thereof to
the relief of the needy. Several
local societies have investments of
this kind the JJritish P.encvolenl
.Society, tho Portuguese Charitable
Society, tho llooululahui Society,
It is a wise thing for any society
to do, when the society can afford
it; that 1b, when a society has suffi
cient funds for present needs nnd to
spare, it cannot do belter probably
than make a permanent investment
of the surplus. But the investment
Idea may be carried to extremes and
bo overdone; that is, present re
quirements may be neglected or
Blighted, inciely for the sake of mak
ing a permanent investment. This
is not truo wisdom j it is foolish
ness. As a matter of fact, some local
societies aro guilty of committing
this foolishness. How mnny( wo
know not. But recently was-published
in tho columns of this paper,
the fiuancial statement of tho Por
tuguese Charitable Society, from
which it appeared that there wero
nearly 2,000 invested, while it was
averred that lelief to the needy had
been suspended, because there were
no available funds. The Hooulu-
lahui Society also has an investment
of some SG',000, while tho objects of
the society arc languishing.
A spendthrift who wastes his
means, regardless of the future, and
ultimately reduces himself to pover
ty, is guilty of no greater foolish
ness than the charitable association
which places its funds in a bank or
elsewhere for tho possible but un
certain benefit of generations un
born, that may never be born, and
that may never bo in need if ever
born, while the present generation is
suffering, starving, and dying from
want. True wisdom dictates atten
tion to present needs, nud not until
they are fully met does it indicate
provision for those to come. The
present i9 an open page; the future
is a sealed book. The present we
know, in part; the future wc know
nothing of. Wc know there are
among us destitute people who need
help; whether there may be when
the inlciest on invested funds be
comes available, wc know not. Shall
thoso now in need be neglected for
the sake of the needy who may come
The llooululahui Society has been J
collecting Hinds for years, and this
is about all it has done. Its pro
fessed object is "the incieasc of the
nation" of the native race. But
what has it done towards this ob
ject? Nothing that we can find,
except to collect money and invest
it. Probably the society's intention
is to use the interest of the invest
ment when the investment becomes
large enough for the interest to bo
of service. But what is to become
of the nation in the meantime? In
stead of increasing it is di creasing,
and for anything the llooululahui
Society has done or is doing, it is
likely to go on decreasing, and by
the lime it is no more, the society
may be ready to do something.
Whereas, if instead of waiting for
interest, the society would wisely
use its 550,000, and trust to the
charitable disposition of the people
for more when that is gone, it might
accomplish something of its pro
fessed object. A lying-in hospital,
for instance, would be a proper in
vestment. The life of many a young
Hawaiian mother and that of her
offspring might be preserved by
such an institution.
CONCERNING THE LIKELIKE
Counsel for the claimants sub
mits the following considerations,
1. The goods were furnished by
order of the King, expressly approv
ed by the Ministry, for the purposes
of a stale funeral, and for reasonable
'Z. There was sufficient reason for
the claimants to believe that an ap
propriation would be asked of the
Privy Council, to meet the payment
of tlieir claims. The new Constitu
tion dcpiivee them of whatever
chances they had with the Privy
Council, and also takes from them
all chance to bring a suit on these
claims against tbe Government, be
cause the Council no longer can
authorise such suits.
3. There is no reason to suppose
that the claimants were noting in
concert to sell an unreasonable
amount of goods ; each one supplied
the King's oiders to himself. Is it
fair to reject all the claims any
more than only one claim or set of
1. Jt is difficult to say what is or
is not a reasonable amount ot such
orders to give or to fill, for a state
funeral. Profuse expenditures, such
for instance, as those made for
Queen Kupiolani by the city council
of Boston last year, are common on
public occasions. They make more
or less scandal, and cause growling,
but the power which officials have in
bitch matters is so vague and un
dc lined, that much has to be left to
their discretion and honesty. Why
should Honolulu meichants be
told that thu engagements made
with them by the King and his
officials shall be utterly disregarded,
while London subscribers to a -loan
illega'ly negotiated by the agents of
the Government are protected 't The
latter were not innocent if tho for
mer wero guilty,.
5. The fact -that the Government
is not legally bound to pay any of
these claims is no reason why the
Legislatuio should refuse to author
ise their payment, it is the only
reason for applying to the Legisla
ture. 0. Thoro is a moral obligation to
make good the engagements in pub
lic affairs like Ibis, of a former ad
ministration, as far as innocent per
sons, guilty of no dishonest or col
lusive practices arc concerned,
7. It ought to bo scandalous for
the Legislature to think that a state
f uncial for a Royal Prinoess, In a
country which claims tho benefits
(as well as boars tho burdens) of a
monarchy, should bo ordored by tho
only officers who could order it, and
that private citizens who supplied
such orders should bo told that they
arc to pay tho bills thcrasolvcsl
There are eomo profits and gains
and savings which no country can
afford to make. The public honor
is concerned that this public funeral
be paid for out of the national
treasury. It is enough if herenfter
proper guard can be kept over such
matters. Private persons ought not
to suffer for neglect on the part of

A YACHTING PARTY.
Mr. Robert Louis Stevenson, tho
famous author, left San Francisco
on the 17th of last Juno in the yacht
Casco, bound for the Marquesas
Islands. From thenco the route is
to Tahiti, Samoa, and finally, after
a cruise of several months, it is the
intention of tho novelist to stop in
Honolulu, making a long stay. The
yachting party consist of Mr. and
Mrs. Stevenson, Mrs. Thomas Ste
venson, the author's mother, and
Lloyd Osbourno, his step-son. Their
first plan was to come directly to
Honolulu, bringing with them Mrs.
J. D. Strong, the daughter of Mrs.
Stevenson, but as they wished to
make a lengthy stay here, they have
saved it like a bonne louche for the
lastr It is a pleasure to kuow that
such a graceful writer is coining to
do justice to our islands, and na his
articles are copied immediately by
the leadiuir English and American
papers, the fame of our Paradise
will go broadcast to thu world,
DEPARTURE OF THE AUSTRALIA.
The S. S. Australia sailed for San
Francisco precisely at noon to-day,
takimr besides a good cargo, 159
passengers 01 cabin and 95 steer
age. A few moments previous to
1:2 o'clock, before all tbe passengers
were on board, and while a number
were on the ship, who had no inten
tion of going, the steamer began to
move, carrying the gftng-plnnk with
her. There was a scramble of sovc
tal persons to get on board, Captain
Pierce taking the lead by climbing
up the side. Those on the steamer
who wanted to come ashore began to
look frightened. It seemed pretty
much as though they would be car-
rieil off. boon the steamer came
back, the gang-plank was put in po
sition again and then there was an
other scramble of a score of persons
to get ashore. While the steamer
was again drifting from the wharf
Custom House Officers boarded her
and had a lot of Chinese baggage
thrown on to the dock. The China
men to whom the baggage belonged
have been detained here on a writ
of habeas corpus. Now the gang
plank was lowered, and as the
steamer hauled fuither off, the band
played "Aloha Oe."
