THE MELBOURNE EXHIBITION.
The S. y. Alameda will be due
here on Saturday next, September
1st, en route for New Zealand and
Australia. Those who intend send
ing articles for the Melbourne Exhi
bition should have them in leadiness
in time. Mr. Henry Williams of
this city, went down by the last
steamer, representing this country,
and will receive and place on exhi
bition any articles that may be sent
from here. Messrs. W. G. Irwin
& Co., Agents of the O. S. S. Co.,
have kindly and considerately offer
ed to transport, free of charge, ex
hibits from these islands, and to
bring them back on the same terms.
Tlic filling in and grading of King
street at the Ewa end, Irom the
bridge to Liliha street, has been in
progress several weeks, and is likely
to occupy many weeks more before
the woik is completed. The causc
waj' between the soap woiks and the
bridge is being widened and raised.
A wall on the seaside is being con
structed of ' soft loose stones, not
very securely placed. It is as near
straight, in one part, as a ram's
horn. As there is no provision
made for no-Is it is presumed
there is to be no fence to
prevent horses, carriages and poi
sons from going overborn d. A solid
mason wall would certainly have
cost more, but it would have made
a complete job that would have last
ed generations. How long are those
soft loose stones going to withstand
the Hows and ebbs of the tide?
There appears to be insufficient pro
vision for tho escape of Hood water,
which comes from inland in the rainy
season. Hitherto it has frequently
overflown the road by the Chinese
theatre ; but the raising of the road,
without an adequate. outlet for the
accumulating water, will probably
result in swamping residences in the
rear. The hill by the soap works is
being removed, leaving the build
ings on each side perched many feet
above the roadbed, and considera
bly depreciated in value thereby. It
eems to us that the property-owners
have a strong claim in equity
for damages against the Govern
ment. The cutting away of the hill
involves a heavy and a totally unne
cessary expenditure. A very easy
grade could be obtained without it.
If the road appropriation is to be
expended in this way, it will not go

A DISCONTENTED TRAVEL
Ediioi; lit i.u.tin: A discontent
ed traveller addies-ed the following
note to the "Herald," published in
Pari1-. While not exactly apiopos
to the point1- in all other parts of the
vorld perhaps, yet it is worthy of
perusal, and discontented travellers
in other places than the capital of
France, have been heard to speak of
the dereliction of duty of American
olllcials in this way. It seems al
most too bad that men should be
sent as foreign leprcsentativcs,
merely to diaw their pay and to
have a good easy time. ',
"In the vernacular of my native
land, lI want to know,' and I take
the liberty of inquiring through
your valuable columns, as to whe
ther or not we are to have any so
cial official representation in Paris
during the Universal Exhibition
next year? We have not had any
since Mr. Morton ceased to be our
Minister. Mr. and Mrs. McLane
aie both very worthy people, but
they aie very old, and the latter
has not een a lcccption day.
Neither has Mrs. Vigneaud nor Mrs.
Jay, the wives of the First and
Second Secretaries of the American
Legation. For all the notice that
ournational anniversaries, the 22nd
of February and the Fourth of July,
leceive from our officials in Paris,
we might as well be in Iceland. It
is very different in London, where
Mr. and Mrs. Phelps do everything
in tneir power to entertain and in
terest their country people. Also it
was very different in Paris during
tho Exhibition season of 1878. Our
Minister, General Noycs, our First
Secretary of Legation, Mr. 11. 1J.
Hilt, and our Consul-General, General
Fairchild, entertained handsomely
We Americans in Paris have never
before been so left in the lurch,
since the days of Minister Wash
burne. Have our olllcials no social
duties to perform? or are they ap
pointed to Paris simply to exercise a
wise economy in the French capital?
I pause lor a reply.
A DlSCOXTEXTU) Travki.v.h.
Editou Bn.ixTix: I was glad
to see your editorial headed "f-ccret
Voting" in your issue of tho 2!lnl.
I like yourself can well remember
the desperate light for and against
it in England. There is a large
and respectable number of people
in that country who are conserva
tives, and who arc such in the
strictest sense of the woul, which
means in boine cases, to let things
which are well tried severely alone,
while in other eases it is a healthy
check on careless legislation, One
of the principal arguments brought
to bear against tho passage of the
Ballot Bill was the tear oi the loss
of control over vote, which would
naturally fall on the employers of
labor. 'Every man who is English
knows perfectly Well the immense
power held by large employeis of
labor over those working for them.
Theie is a sort of communistic in
fluence existing nruiiiid a Factory,
Coal-mine or Woikshop in England,
which can only be understood by
the English themselves. The fact
that it is thoro cannot bo gainsaid.
"iSliow mc tho politics of your em
ployer and I'll tell you how his men
will vote," is an old axioms. The
loss of this influence was to the con
servatives of that day, a bitter pill.
I3ut to-day those ery same juou
would just as slrouuously oppose
any measure to ubollali secret vot
ing. Now Mr. Editor, I cannot for the
life of ino see why the experiences
of a so much older country cannot
lie accepted in this countiy as the
best for it. Tho Illiteracy aigu
ment is absurd and fallacious to the
last degree. Lord Snndon's Act for
compulsory education was not yet
tried, and'in -pito of the great num
ber of ignorant voters it was found
that the Ballot Bill of England was
the best measure ever, given to the
The opposition to the clauses of
the bill piovided for secret voting
now before the House is beyond
me. The question of illiteracy is a
lie, because 1 have made it my busi
ness during the last week to talk
with many llawaiians, and I con
testify to the fact that the large ma
jority of them fully understand
what it means. The only others
who may be difficult arc the Portu
guese, and it i safe to say that be
fore the law is required everyone of
them will have had sulllcient lessons
as to how to use the franchise. As
for other voters it would be a bold
member of the present House who
dare to say they weie illiterate.
In face of all the facts in favor of
secret voting, I fail to see but one
reason for the opposition of any
member of the present House of
Parliament. Here are men largely
elected on the wings of Reform try
ing their level best to kill one of
the greatest Reform measures of the
nineteenth century and there can
but be one reason FEA1L
You doubtless leincmber Mr.
Editor, the hue and cry which was
raised against the late party in pow
er when, at tho 1880 elections, a
eeitain body of soldiers was marched
down to Aliiolani Hale with certain
tickets in their hands. It has been
openly stated in my hearing that
similar practices were carried on on
more than one plantation at the last
election, and I myself saw one case
at the File Engine house where a
ticket was taken from a Hawaiian
by a spotter and another one sub
sUtuted. They may make all the
laws they like against bribery and
undue influence, but it is simply im
possible to prevent me as an employ
er of labor giving certain tickets to
my men and marching them in a
body to the polls. On all sides one
hears expressions of dissatisfaction
with the present House, and there
is not n doubt in my mind that the
majority of the members fully
realize the fact that they will never
sit there again, and hence their op
position to the present measure,
it nil this opposition clearly lays them
open to the aspersion that they
wisli a door left open by which they
may use undue influence at the next
With respect to the work done by
the present House, a remark of Mr.
Disraeli 1 think it was at the end
of the session of 1S7S comes to my
mind. He rose in his place on the
opposition bench, and after care
fully reviewing the work of the
year, he wound up his rennuks with
the following caustic expression:
"And now after a session of urtlu
owt labor the gentlemen on the
Treasury benches have accomplished
a large amount of notting, and I
can only compare them to a row of
