"THE REFORM PARTY."
liDiTon Bulletin: One of the
mostconvineing proofs that could bo
offered of the strength of tho Re
form party, and of the hold it is
supposed to havo on tho people is
found in the eagerness of aspiring
politician; and would-be political
leaders in public affairs to bo identi
fied with that party, and to be re
garded as prominent and influential
in its councils." fAdveitiscr, Oct.
Most tuiu, O noble sage. But tho
' editor of the "Advertiser," being a
lawyer, is also a special pleader in
this: thul ho "distinguishes" the
cases whetoiii universal truths pre
sent themselves, by saying, "01
this don't apply to me; it's the other
Now we have the spectacle of a
small political faction tho lump of
a political piuty, the jackals of Ha
waiian politics combining together
to "read out" tho mass ol the party!
Is it not true that the vnst majority
of the party u lio adopted the name
of "Reform" entertain tho sumo po
litical sentiments advanced by the
Filth "Ward club the lit st organized
in the kingdom leilerated by the
platform of tho nominating conven
tion ; and voted on by the masses
on boptcmbcr 12th? Now, where is
the change? Simply in this: that
the remnant of the old "missionary"
political party (most of whom either
held entirely aloof from the move
ments culminating June 30th to Juhy
7th ; and others of whom deserted
the cause xchen they saw it was likely
to lead to a conflict of arms! ") by
persistency in shouting "Rnronu,"
alter the leal woik was done, man
aged to worm themselves into all the
commanding positions, then delibei
atcly btoke pledges entered into be
fore Hkj elections under the most
solemn forms, and have since striven
to nullify the power of those who
put th'cm in position and whoso con
lideuee they have thus grossly be
trayed. OfalI the reprehensible and con
temptible tiaits attaching themselves
to any known political faction that
of Pharisaism is the most despica-
ble; and of all political factions
known to the witter, none possess
this adjunct to so great an extent as
the clique voiced by the "Adver
tiser," when it Hays, (October 31)
in speaking of the convention which
nominated Mr. YV. C. Wilder to
succeed his brother: "Men whobe
personal character and habits, whose
political and social alllliations, to
say noth'mg ot their known and
openly expressed opinions, forbid
the idea of their feeling any patticu
lar interest in good government, or
having any sympathy with the avow
ed principles of tlie Reform party,
rushed to the front and busied
themselves with organizing cau
cuses, getting up tickets, and pull
ing wires for the election of them-
y selves and their fiiends to the con
vention, with an alacrity which
could hardly have been born of good
for tho public weal." Cotnincnd
' tho "public weal," Oh Lord of Na
tions, to this Pharisee of Pharisees:
this type of what ho himself loudly
shouts is the Reform party, but
which is a faction weak in number
and strong only in questionable me
thods: these "Reformers" who be
lieve, to judge them by their acts,
that Reform is all right for every
body, else to practise but themselves :
these exemplars of "personal char
acter and habits" (to say nothing of
"political and social alllliations")
who thank God they are not as
other men arc: these peoplo, who,
onSunda3's, dressed in broadcloth
and line linen, may bo seen carrying
the Bible under their arms to native
Sunday Schools ; and who on Mon
days aro found writing mortgages
on the lands of the members of their
class, witli compound interest at 1
per cent, per month, and commis
sion at both ends ; theso peoplo who
were wont, before the organization
of the Reform party, to meet to
gether in a back olllee of one of the
"faithful," slice up the Hawaiian
electoral divisions, and divide them
out to Tom, Dick and tlio devil,
without consulting the wishes of tlio
electors; theso people who would
bo so 'outof place at a political pow
wow nt the palace." (Advoitiser,
Oct. ill.) Oil ycj, commend us to
these "representatives of wealth and
intelligence" (missionary war-cry),
of these would-be permanent guaid
ians of tho rights and interests and
liberties of the Hawaiian peoplo 1
Mr, Editor, theso political cliame
lions may change the color of their
own skins, but thoy cannot deceive
Iho clcclorrvto n sccohtKitno t.y
same old story. Tho work of
"Reform party" now IIch in
forming" out of olllco by the first
constitutional opportunity, tlio
"jackal" party, who 'having stolen
all tlio substantial results of other
people's labor, me now trying
so hard to blcal their name.
TAKES THE CAKE.
, Editou Bullltin: For a case of
pure gall and unmitigated check,
together with wilful misstatements,
1 think the editorial in this morn
ing's "Advertiser" on the Reform
Party, ttikes the cake.
Surely this fledgling knows that
the present Ministry does not now
represent tho great mass of tho Re
form Party, but only a small, mean,
narrow clique, most of whom crept
into the party as soon as there was
no danger and a chance of making
something for themselves ; but who
in time of danger said, 'no, I have
lived with this kiijd of Government
for so long,it is good enough for the
rest of my time.
Why was it that at the last con
vention no one daro say a word in
favor of tlio Government?
The remarks on the pcrsonel of
the convention aie an insult to the
whole convention. Why don't he
come out and mention the names he
objocts to, and give the parties a
chance to defend themselves?
The truth is, this little clique got
the' best of us at tho first convention
and even the men who gave the
name of Reform to the party are not
now in sympathy with them. But
the clique like tho name and want
the majority of the party who aro
not in the ring with them, to leave
the party and adopt a new name.
But it won't worlc, Sonny.. We were
in the party when you were at
school, my boy, and when your
friends, some went to the Coast, it
it was safer, you know, and some
were on the Coast on their way here
and heard that the people had risen
up and were going to get Reform at
any price, thoy stayed on the Coast,
loo, till danger was over. Then
thero were others who had a steamer
icady for the Coast, too, if it came
to a light.
Now let me knock a little sense
into your head. The mass of the
people do nut condemn the Reform
Party, as you say a large number
of them in the Convention do. They
are all for Reform, but not such a
kind us tho present Ministty give
us, and it will be just as well for
yon to remember that the natives
and Portuguese have organized, and
the other nationalities will be soon,
and we are coming down to the Re
form meetings in every ward, and
there wont be a grease Vpot left of
the missionary paity, when we get
through the convention.
Mr. L. J. Levey is in receipt of a
letter from Mr. Louis Bclmour cf

culars concerning the Hawaiian

or a di:i,i:gati:.
La9l evening there was a largo
attendance at tho Y. M. C. A. hall
to welcomo homu Mr. Chas. M.
Cooko who recently returned from
Stockholm, Sweden, whither ho went
as a dolcgalo fioiu the Honolulu Y.
M. C. A. to the eleventh four-yearly
convention of tlio worlds Y. Si. C.
Associations. Mr. F. J. Lowrey
piesided, and after making n few
brief remaiks called upon Messrs.
T. R. Walker and T. May to render
a vocal duet which they did in tho
most acceptable rannner,Mrs. Walker
playing the accompaniment on the
Mr. P. C. Jones on being called
upon for a few remarks said ho had
no doubt Mr. Cooko had received
inspiration from meeting those
Christian men from nil nations, who
had met together to consider the
interests of the young men of tho
world, and if ho could impart to the
members of tho Association in Hono
lulu some of that inspiration they
would bo amply repaid. Mr. Cooko
had gone, out at his own expense
and had no doubt been greatly pro
fited by meeting them. The Hono
lulu Association was deepby indebted
to him for the services be had ren
dered and it was hoped that the re
marks he would presently address to
them would stimulate its mem
bers to earnest, active work among
the young men of this city.
Mr. Cooke, who was warmly re
ceived on rising, said he thought
perhaps the debt was on his side for
the honor conferred upon him in ap
pointing him a delegate. He had
received a similar appointment from
the Chinese and Japanese Y. M. C.
A.'s, so that at the convention he
was the delegate of three diffoient
nationalities? He loft New Yoik in
the City of Berlin which had on
board about forty persons on their
way to attend the conference. Many
enteitainmcnts were gotten up dur
ing the voyage and one lady who
was not religiously inclined said she
had no ulea the members were such
jolly good fellows. That was an in
stance of the way in which their in
fluence was excited among people
not connected with them. Several
pro or meetings were held on board.
On arrival in England most of the
delegates went to Glasgow and there
embarked in a steamer and alter a
trip of twelve days arrived at Tron
hciin. Here they found waiting a
special car ordered by King Oscar to
carry them to Stockholm. He (the
speaker) went by another route,
leaving London about live days after
the other company by way of York
and Newcastle. They left the latter
place on a steamer and finally ar
rived at Christiana, going to Stock
holm later on by train. The Con
vention opened August loth at the
tabernacle in Stockholm, which holds
about two thousand people. The
number provided with credentials
was 303. The total number of dele
gates and friends present was be
tween 700 and 800. The introduc
tory sermon, a very eloquent one,
was by Rev. Prof. Rudolf of Up
sala University. The hospitality of
the city was tendered to the dele
gates and the whole town was favor
able to their coming. The confer
ence was opened by one Berndorff,
president of tho conference at Ber
lin in 1881, a fine looking gentlemau,
who spoke French, German and
Sir. Cooke then went on to give
particulars of the repoits read at
the conference. The report of the
Central Committee stated that there
wero throughout the world 3,801
associations 72 in Canada, 1132 in
the United States, G24 in Great
Britain, C73 in Germany, 505 in
Holland, 90 in Franco, CO in Swe
den and Norway, 25 in Oceanica,
47 in Asia, 17 in Denmark, 12 in
Africa, the rest scattered throughout
Russia, Itary, Spain and tho other
parts of the world. The work had
made most progress in the United
States. The associations there num
bcied 950 in 1884, and 1132 in 1888.
The property of the associations in
the United States had increased in
the four years from 4,000,000 to
$7,000,000. King Oscar contri
buted towards the leception to the
delegates. A telegram was received
fiom him nt Berlin during the con
ference, regretting his inability to
attend and invoking the blessing of
the Holy Spirit upon tlio conference.
Each delegate was presented with a
badge beaiing his national color.
The Stockholm delegates had great
hopes of tho good it would do them
through holding the confeieuco in
His Honor the Chief Justice said
Mr. Cooke had told them of a great
deal lie had seen, but had not yet
informed them of what ho himself
had said nt the conference'
Mr. Cooke replied by giving an
outline of his spccclrnt tho confer
ence. lie was followed in a few remarks
by his brother Mr. A. F. Cooko who
Mr. T. R. Walker moved that
theio beplaced on tho records of the
association, an expression of grati
tudo for tlio way Mr. Cooko had re
presented tho Y. M. C. A. at Stock
holm. No better delegate could
have been .sent.
Tho Chief Justice seconded tho
motion which was unanimously
Ice cream and cake wero hauded
