FRIDAY, AUGUST 3, 1888.
The mortuary report for the
month of Jul- bhows a total of 38
deaths for the district of Honolulu.
The causes of death are specified in
30 cases ; the remaining S, or a trifle
over one-fifth of the whole, aic put
down as "unknown." This is a
startling admission, and one that
should not he possible to be made.
Just think, one-fifth of the persons
who have passed from life in this
city during the past month, have
been committed to the earth without
its being known what caused the
termination of their eaithly exis
tence. Here is room for all kinds
of conjectures. The burial certifi
cate in each case should have shown
the cause of death, and in all cases
where the cause was unknown the
certificate should have been with
held until proper investigation had
been made and the cause ascer
tained if possible. No elucidation
is needed to show v. hat an open door
is left for foul practices where such
laxity exists as that indicated by a
return like this "8 deaths, cause
unknown." It is about time that
some "reform" was inaugurated
right here. This condition of things
has gone on from year to year, and
has lasted far too long.
DANCER AHEAD !
"Whom the gods destroy they first
make mad," said the ancients. The
wisdom of the saying makes us feai
ful that the present Legislature is
approaching its doom. Certainly
its action on the 2d inst. upon the
divorce question is evidence that
our wiseacres know nothing of the
history of social morals. Are they
seriously willing to throw down the
restraints of decency in increasing
the facility of divorce? Are they
working for the golden age of Jean
Jacques Rosseau when "Wild in
woods the savage ran, ere arts and
manners firstjeorrupted man?"
Has tho "bad-heaited man of ge
nius" got in nmong them with his
doctrine of the "original rights of
man," that they are willing to drive
this wedge into the already splitting
seams of the social fabric? Simple
amazement at tho fatal blindness
of their inconsistency makes right
thinking men cast about for some
excuse for these gentlemen who arc
posing as reforming patriots. Can
it be that any Benedicts among our
legislators are unhappy in their ma
rital relations and see possible relief
from the conjugal yoke in a year's
desertion by cither party of tho
other? Can it be that the young and
festive bachelors see danger in the
way and desire to mitigato their
prospective misery of "marrying in
liasto and repenting at leisure?" Do
theso wise men of Hawaii propose
to add to the attractions of tho Pa
radise of the Pacific by making it a
retreat for the foolish victim of un
happy wedlock, who fehall ilock to
tho balmy shores "Wheie every
S prospect pleases, and only man is
otyecuonauie, w ncnu
tbeir monoy on tho Divorce Court
and lawyers' fees.
Ah ! now, we begin to smell a
laigo-eized rodent. Tho lawyers
forsooth will make money when
many shall come from tho East and
the West, the North and the South,
and having sauntered by the gently
curving Thurston Boulevard to the
top of Punchbowl hill, the victims
of domestic strife will look down
complacently upon the city of reluge
where divorces are easy.
It is ainaziug,too, that the present
legislature should be active in pro
moting measures for the welfare of
tho native Hawaiian race, ami for its
protection fiom the blighting influ
ence of the hoicles of Chinamen who
bring iio women from the flowery
realms, and then should have al
ready passed the second reading of
n bill whicli if it becomes a law will
promote licentiousness and make
the Hawaiian women the chief suf
ferers in the unequal strife. It is
monumental stupidity to concoct
measures favoring immigration and
colonization (which mean nothing
if they do not result in the forma
tion of homes in which marriage has
its due protection), and let in the
tyrannous libeity of a rude time in
the freedom of divorce.
Wake up members of the Legisla
ture! Get your minds off four-feet
fences, giant powder, petty salaries
and the fishes of the sea. Gel down
below your bridges and roads to the
very foundations of social order, and
study the history and philosophy of
divorce, befoic you glibly vote on a
question which lias taxed thcie
sourccs of the greatest minds.
The wisest of men have agreed
that marriage is a divinely created
institution and that social misery
follows when it has lost its hold on
the reverence of the Bocial order.
Whatever may bo said for or
against the Election Bill as a whole,
(not having caicfully examined the
measure we aic not prcpaicd to
offer an opinion) wc endoie heai li
ly its aim to secure secrecy of vot
ing. Wo believe iu strict and in
violable seciecy of the ballot at
elections, because wc believe it is
the only sure method of securing
an independent vote. An elector
w ho is in any w ay dependent on
somebody else is just as likely to be
influenced by the other person's
wishes as his own honest convictions,
when he knows that it may be
known how he votes. Voting by
ballot at elections in this country
has been all a sham, so far as its
ostensible secrecy is concerned;
and wc need not go farther back
than the last elections in Honolulu
to find persons voting against their
convictions, because they were
afraid of its being known and used
against them if they had followed
their own inclination. This is not
a desirable state. Every elector
should be placed by law in a posi
tion where he can record his vote
in accordance pith his wish, withuot
the fear of his independence being
used against him. A strictly secret
ballot is the only way to secure this
end. Therefore, we vote for aboli
tion of the old sham, and the adop
tion of a system of real secrecy.
