h MONDAY, OCT. 22, 1888.
Ajuorrespondent has complained of
the bad condition of some of our
streets during and after rains, caus
ed by defective grading and lack of
proper outlets for storm water. The
complaint is well founded. Portions
of King street recently constructed
shows a lamentable absence of intelli
gent civil engineering. Very nice for
dry weather, but very nasty after
rain. Provision for the escape of
water seems to have been entirelv
overlooked In this case, as in others.
The Government organ probably
considers this an evidence of skill
and competence on the part of Gov-
A ' ernment ofllcials, but tho Bulletin
cites it as a proof of incompetence,
and thinks it a pity that when our
thoroughfares are being constructed
the plain dictates of common sense
Bhould be ignored.
Fast driving, particularly amongst
the hack fraternity, is a very favorite
pastime in Honolulu. Whether the
passenger be pressed for time or
not, the hack-driver appears to con
sider it his especial and bounden
duty to put his horse at full speed.
Let the road be straight or crooked,
crowded or not, it i3 the same thing
to our average hack-driver. Corners
are turned at the same high speed,
and woe betide the unfortunate pe
destrian (or equestrian for that mat
ter) who happens to be in the way.
. Smash-tips arc of so frequent oc-
currcncc that the ordinary quill
driver will not leave his desk to look
at one. The novelty of the thing
has long since passed. The sur
prising part of the business is, not
that accidents happen, but that they
"do not occur more frequently.
. It is an ill wind that blows no
; body good. The carriage manufac-
turers (or rather repairers) drive
a roaring trade. Scarcely a day
passes but at least one badly disa
bled vehicle is brought in for repairs.
If the evil stopped here tho public
would have but little to say ; but,
since the habit of reckless fust driv
ing endangers life and limbs of all
parties who happen to be on tho
streets we have again to enter a pro
test againBt tho practice.
THE COMMAND OF THE VOLUN
TEERS. The subject indicated at tho top
of this article has been cause, first
'.and last, of a great amount of pub-
K lie. as well n.8 private discussion, and
the fact of a "Cabinet Commission"
RT liituinr. linnn MnnnHir laQlinfl tf f?nl
f Ashford together with tho contrary
and doubtful statements appearing
Jthereanent in the Government organ
induces the Bulletin to briefly
preview some facts in connection with
kw hat seems to lis a serious act not
Ipnly of omission, but of commission
"on the part of tho government in tho
i non-execution of a law which was
deemed of great public concern,
h and called forth suoh an amount of
'.political feeling, during tho session
jrbf the Lcgielature, that it waB
passed ns a matter of urgency over
tho veto of tho King, .
In tho first placo the law was in
troduced after Col. Ashford's resig
nation from tho force, to bolster up
tho rump of tho "Reform" parly at
present in power by getting at tho
head of the military establishment
somo man who would bu subservient
to tho Government.
It was hoped that Col. Ashford's
temporary 'retirement had so mili
tated against him as to insure hi9
failure: othcrwiso the "faithful"
would never have passed a Military
Act; because, as confessed by their
party organ, they were "afraid" of
him ; for what reason no one can tell
unless that as lie nau pucnioi-Kcu
them into office, he might, unless
they pulled his teoth, pitchfork them
out on their continued refusal to
carry out their anti-election pro
mises. Then as soon ns the law was
passed over the King's veto, and
Col. Ashford announced himself as
a candidate for the place, every one
of tho "jackal" politicians wont to
work to defeat him. Though the
election was by tho ofllcers of tho
Battalions, an influence was sought
to be cast against him in advance
by an adverse pronunciamento of
the men in the ranks of the Rifles,
his old corps. Cabinet Ministers
even went to employers of young
men who were members of that
body, and induced them to "influ
ence" their employees by threats of
dismissal. Government positions
were actually made manufactured
to throw as sops to officers who
were known to be "Ashford" men,
to try and buy them ; and every
volunteer soldier and officer in Gov
ernment employ was plainly told by
men known to be personal friends of
Ministers that in voting on the ques
tion they would do well to remember
that 'the Government wanted Ash
ford 'defeated. But tho result was
an almost unanimous pronuncia
mento in his favor, Xy the men in
the ranks ; while he was elected on
first ballot by about o-thirds
majority of the ofllcers, on August
20th, and bo ofllcially reported to
the Minister of Foreign Affairs the
, Sec. 8 of the Act says: "As soon
as may be after such name shall bo
so certified to said Minister, ho
shall, unless a majority of the Cabi
net object to the fitness of the per
son so certified, present his name to
liis Majesty, who shall then commis
sion such person Colonel of tho Ha
waiian Volunteers;" and, the next
section reads "In case no person so
certified shall be approved and pre
sented to his Majosty said' Minister
shall, within two weeks after such
certificate shall have reached him,
notify the senior officer, etc., etc.,"
(describing process for new elec
tion. Now it is a notorious fact that two
of the Cabinet (including "said
Minister") worked the whole four
teen days allowed by law to induce
a third Minister to "object to the
fitness" of the Celonel-elect ; and
that only on the fourteenth day did
they hand the commission to tho
King, who had meantime been made
aware of the extreme desire of one
half his Cabinet that the election
should, through some hook or crook,
become abortive. It is matter of
notoriety that one of "said Minis
ters" Btated in express torms after
the election, that "he'd be d if

In the face of all tho known facts
wc ask if any ono can doubt a plan
plot, if you please on. tho part
nf those sworn to obev tho law, to
render tho law abortive? This act
of the Cabinet may bo regarded ns
ono of the most glaving and corrupt
of any of their long list of broken
promises and political crimes of both
omission and commission. In the
jugglery which has led up to this re
sult Ministers appear to have prosti
tuted their public positions to the
settlement of a private grudge for
political purposes. The personnel
of the actors is unimportant

a matter of principle ; and one which
will be remembered till February
1890 by the men who by their bay
onets on June 80th and by their bal
lots on September 12th of last year
placed these political non-descripts
in a position where they could be
tray and have betrayed their politi
cal party, to tho aggrandizement of
a political faction, and the discredit
of Hawaiian politics.
LETTER FROM CHAS. C. MARSH.
Mn, Editor: In regard to the
correspondence in last evening's
Bulletin by Mr. 11. W. Meyer, as
between himself and me, may I have
a space for a word? I waive giving
reasons for my letter to Mr. Meyer,
as I know controversy between so
old and popular n resident and a
stranger, such as I, would be an
unequal one for me. If I was in the
wrong in writing such a lotter I
heartily apologize to Mr. Meyer,
who I believe could not have under
stood all the circumstances of my
visit to him. Had he done so the
results would doubtless have been
such as to give no excuse for my
letter. While withdrawing me
charge of inhospitality against him,
allow me to state that I was not un
influenced in my action by residents
of Molokai acquainted with Mr.
Meyer, after they were informed of
the whole circumstances without
prevarication. My hasty threat to
Mr. Meyer, made in passion, was
not and could not be carried out in
the copy furnished for the Hawaiian
Directory. Ciias. C. Maiisii.

he'd ever sign that commission!"
But now comes a delicate ques
tion. The Minister of Interior (act
ing for Minister of Foreign Affairs,
then ill) took the commission to tho
King. The Minister has made state
ments to a number of people to the
effect that he in the namo of the
Cabinet advised and raquested His
Majesty to sign it. The KiDg, on
the other hand, is credited with the
statement that the Minister not only
did not proffer any advice, but, on
being asked the desire of the Cabi
net, distinctly refused to advise.
And tho King, taking ten days to
consider tho matter, returned the
instrument unsigned and on the lGth
of October, two months after the
election, Col. Ashford is ofllcially
notified that ho is elected to the
position. Meantime, however, tho
disgust and dissatisfaction of tho
Battalions with this ofllcial leger
demain havo resulted in their almost
entire disintsgration. For weeks,
there is hut ono company in cither
Battalion which has had enough men
present for a squad drill ; and a
