MONDAY, SEFf. 10, 1888.
Mrs. E. R. Hendry has resigned
her position in Fort street School to
the regret of tho Board of Education
as well as of pupils and parents of
pupils of that institution. Mrs.
Hendry has been vice-principal of
Fort street School for n. peiiod of
five years, which position she has
filled with credit to herself and satis
faction to the Board of Education.
She not only entered upon her du
ties there with the qualifications of
tiaining and experience as an in
structor of youth, but with the natu
ral gifts essential to the successful
teacher, and the results of her la-
Quoting from the last
biennial report of the Board of Edu
cation, "Fort street School is prac
tically the Government High School,
and the pupils get a very thorough
practical education. Especial atten
tion is paid to writing and composi
tion throughout the school, and
there is no doubt that iti these stu
dies Fort street School excels any
other educational establishment in
this Kingdom, public or private."
A full share of the credit for this
condition of the school is due to
Mrs. Hendry ; from which the natu
ral inference is that the lady's with
drawal will be a felt loss to that in
This morniug's "Advertiser" has
an account of a collision between
two brakes on Saturday last, one
being occupied by Miss Debbie
Lyle, (daughter of Mr. Lyle of the
Marine Railway), and her infant
niece, and the other by a man and
woman, presumably unknown. The
latter ran into the former. Miss
Debbie was thrown from her brake,
stunned, and otherwise injured.
The occupants of the vehicle doing
tho mischief did not stop to render
assistance, or even to nscertain tho
amount of injury done, but drove
Such a proceeding is highly re
prehensible. Whether the collision
was the result of rapid or careless
driving, the record docs not say;
but there can be little doubt that it
was. However, the least that the
couplo would have done, had they
been possessed of manly and wo
manly feeling, would have been to
render all assistance in their power
to the injured party. Their conduct
marks them as inhuman creatures,
whoever they are.
Tho circumstance furnishes an
opportunity to return to an old sub
ject which has received considerable
attention from this paper in times
past, viz. : fast driving through the
streets and on the public thorough
fares. Our labor has hitherto been
in vain. The practice still continues,
and is more rampant to-day than it
oyer was before. Rattling along the
streets and around corners at a furi
ous pace, just ns if life depended on
reaching the destination in 1:10, is
the regular custom. Public expresses

is ignored by drivers and by the

OUR GLORIOUS CONSTITUTION.
Editou Bi'lletix: Notwith
standing the many and varied at
tacks made upon the present Ha
waiian Constitution, 1 contend that
it is, unamended, the best suited for
these islands that conld be "hashed
up ;" although I admit that it might
be unsuitable to the needs ot a civil
The Hawaiian Constitution is gen
erally believed to be a contradictory,
inconsistent, incongruous and un
safe guide in all matters which it is
intended to regulate ; but, neverthe
less, 1 cleave to the opinion that the
contrary is the fact.
Tho gloiious Constitution of tho
Hawaiian Kingdom is one of the
most pioliflc and accommodating
documents ever drawn up hy the art
of man it proves everything, helps
everybody, and is gradually invad
ing the household and regulating
the affairs of everyday life. As an
instance of this my boy refused to
cat poi the other day ; because it
was unconstitutional when more ex
pensive dishes were on the table.
Properly viewed tho Hawaiian
Constitution is like an accommodat
ing "vest pocket" that has only to
be searched to find out the treasure
it contains. Should a kanaka legis
lator oppose a bill or motion in the
House he appeals to a rule or clause
of the Constitution as supporting
liis opinion ; and the fellow on the
other side flings back, as a retort,
another clause of the same docu
ment. Thus the Constitution is
handy and invaluable to all parties
and factions as a political sand bag,
used but never abused.
Another impoitant advantage of
the document is the readiness with
which its separate rules and provi
sions can be laid aside when occa
sion requires, as witness the aibi
trary exclusion of the public from a
Legislative committee meeting last
Saturday in express opposition to
Rule 27 of tho Constitution. The
rules of the Hawaiian Constitution
have certain folding arrangements
by which they can be removed and
suspended as easily as are the rules
of the Legislative Chamber. This
is a grand convenience, because the
Constitution might otherwise get
seriously in the way and be hurt.
Another great advantage posscss-
aclcristics of Monarchical and Re
publican institutions so beautifully
mixed and blended so that we, poor
Hawaiians. cannot tell "which from
t'other." That is just as it should
be ; because we must believe the Con
stitution to be Hawaiian or nothing.
Hawaiians must create and evolve
their constitutions themselves, and
the wisdom, profundity of study and
erudition apparent in the Hawaiian
Constitution, shows conclusively the
progress of our development in this
direction as a people, and the great
aptitude we have for self-government.
It is all very well to say that the
"thing" was hastily gotten up, and
must necessarily bo imperfect; but
1 maintain that this circumstance
was fortunate in giving to our glori
ous Constitution theconglomciation,
comprehensiveness, angularity and
feasibility necessary to its useful
ness, convenience, and adaptability
to tho wants and whims of Hawai
ian legislators of the straight type
or the curly.
1 trust that His Majesty, with or
without the advice of his quartette
of august responsible or irresponsi
ble Ministers, will send a copy of the
Hawaiian Constitution to the Mel
bourne Exposition before it closes,
to inform all the ends of the earth
of the wisdom and greatness pre
vailing on these "isles of the sea,"
as embodied and reflected in the
unique document which we swear to
support whether we know ifs con
tents or not. It might also be ad
visable to send with the sacred docu
ment the portraits of the quartette
of Ministers, which would be unique
"Cabinet" pictures and convey a
fair idea of what kind of government
we have in the Hawaiian Kingdom.

I will explain :
On the lltli day of June, 1888,1
addressed a letter to the Minister of
Finance, requesting him to allow
Dr. llillebiaud's books, treating
about the "Flora of Hawaii," to
come in duty free, if ho could law
fully do so.

told mo that ho had icceived iuv

sympathy with tho objei t in view,
Mid would draw up a special bill to
lay before the House.
Hero tho matter rested. Uo
doubt the Attorney-General had
other work to do and I had almost
foigottcn tho matter, when the ves
sel which had tho books on board
arrived week before last, after an
exceptionally long voyage.
Then the question was re-opened
and tho bill piesontcd to the Legis
lature by a member of the Cabinet.
I believe that this explanation will
satisfy nil fair-minded pcopla that
this bill was not brought before the
IIoii'c by the Attorney-General, in
older to further any private schemes
at this late date.
The House killed the bill as every
one knows. But I shnll take an op

Honolulu, Sept. 0, 1888.
Our correspondent seems to haye
missed the point or intention of our
brief article. AVc have not and had
not the slightest objection to the
remission of duties of the book. In
fact, believed and believe it would
have been the proper thing to have
done. Nor did we intimate or sup
pose that any private interest would
be seived thereby. Our idea was,
that a mcrabor of the Government
had no more right to introduce a
private bill after the expiration of
the time allowed for private bills,
than any other member of the
House. Only this and nothing
more. Under a suspension of the
rules any member can do so, and
can, property. Ed.
