A GOOD CASE MADE OUT.
The people of Kulaokahua plains
are petitioning the Board of Educa
tion for a schoolhouse. They are in
a position to make out a good case
for themselves. There is no public
school in the district ; but children
are numerous there : the distance to
the nearest school is considerable
too great for small children to walk ;
and the Board has already a fine
piece of land in the locality, set
apart for school purposes. No
doubt, these ai e considerations which
will have due weight with the Board
in its deliberations upon the prayer
of the petition.
THE PROPER PLACE FOR CAR
RIAGES. Pedestrians were badly incon
venionced and several narrow es
capes from accidents occurred to
day, under the shed on the steam
ship wharf, through the presence of
horses and carriages. So great was
the crowd of people on foot that it
was difficult for anyone to move
about, and yet carriages essayed to
driTe through the mass. These are
common occurrences at the depart
ure of the foreign steamers. It iB
to be feared that if the practice of
driving within the gate when the
space is so closely packed with peo
ple, largely ladies and children, is
permitted to continue, injury to life
and limb may be the result. It
would be well to keep all carriages
outside the gate: that is the proper
place for them. Inside they are an
inconvenience, a nuisance, and a
menace to the general safety.
The club met at the club room at
7 :30 last evening. Mr. Louis Tous
saint presiding. No business of im
portance came before the meeting,
except two applications for member
ship, which were laid over until
next week for action. Secretary
Putnam's sickness prevented his be
SCHOOLHOUSE ON THE PLAINS.
A committee consisting of Messrs.
W. M. Giffard and S. B. Rose was
recently appointed by residents of
Beretania street to wait on the Pre
sident of the Board of Education,
with regard to the ereotion of a
schoolhouse on tho vacant lot ou
lioretauia street. The committee
have got up a petition signed by
about ilfty residents of tho plains
praying that a schoolhouse be built.
Tho petition has been sent to the
Board of Education who have pro
mised to consider it.
DECISION OF SUPREME COURT.
By tho Into decision of the Su
preme Court, or rather the majority
of said Court, on tho amendments to
tho Liquor Law passed the last ses
sion of the Legislature, it seems that
they arc all unconstitutional. So far
that Court have, we believe, found
every act passed by that Legislature
which lias been submitted to thorn,
unconstitutional. But in this latter
case, with all duo deference to the
decision of the majority of the
Court, wc believe that the opinion of
the dissentiue Justice is the one that
will meet with the greatest favor from
those residing in the country ills
tricts,and who know better than any
one else can know, the great neces
sity there was of such a law. That
the Illicit traffic in liquors was car
ried on by just those who now com
plain of the law was a thing that it
was almost impossible for the police
force to restrain, and they openly
almost defied the law as it then
stood. Since the law, now repealed
by the late decision, came into force,
it has worked splendidly, especially
in the country districts throughout
the islands. At least, that is tne
common report. It had, by its
workings, almost entirely stopped
the illicit trafilc in all the retail
stores throughout the country dis
tricts. It may have worked a hard
ship to a very few ; but if it did
what right have they to complain
when it was brought about by their
own unlawful acts?
Vc believe that any law that
brings as much good to the country
at large, is for the benefit of the
many, as against the few. Wc
know how, under the old law, it was
almost impossible to get a convic
tion against Chinese store keepers
who kept liquors on their premises,
ostensibly for their own use, but iu
reality for sale. Now the late law
is virtually repealed by the late de
cision, will not the petty stores all
through the country rejoice?
In a few weeks one can again get
his drink at almost any little stoio
throughout the country. And when
the police make a raid on the store
the store keeper, with a wave of his
hand, says, "you see, ractoomuchy
man work for inc," they all have
this "Shamshu ;" and the poor po
liceman cannot say "nay." Wc
ought, and must have strict liquor
laws, and if the present Constitu
tion is so leaky that it will not sus
tain such legislation, why, knock it
in the head, and give us one that
Ask any of the sheriffs or their
deputies what will be the outcome
of the late decision, and we think
the general opinion will be that Ha
waii has gone back a step, that will
take a long time to make up.
We are sorry that the whole Su
preme Court could not have favored
the opinion of Justice Dole, in this
matter. But if it was unconstitu
tional, we are glad to know it. We
hardly know how any law, in view
of the wholesale unconstitutionality
of so' many of tho Acts passed by
the late Legislature can be made re
stricting the liquor traffic under our
present constitution. What a mis
erable thing it is! Let us have a
new one. Ililo Record. """

' THE FATE OF HAWAII.
Tho following article was pub
lished in the S. F.."Cair March 25.
The news from Hawaii shows that
for tho present the danger of a revo
lution has been averted by the sur
render of tho islands to foreign con
trol. The King accepts tho position
of a cipher, and tho real business of
ndmiuistciing public affairs is in tho
hands of a few persons speaking the
English Ianguago and hailing origin
ally cither from this country or from
tho British Colonies or from Great
Britain. Behind these are a compact
body of Chinamen, who, by act
ing as a unit, seem to have acquit cd
considerable political power, and
bid fair by and by to exercise con
siderable influence over the native
Parliament. The Kanaka has nearly
disappeared from view, so far as
politics and government arc con
cerned. It is evident that the islands
have reached that stage in their his
tory when their old institutions and
the native race are fading away in
the presence of the foreigner. Is
it safe for this country to watch the
evolutions of the new regimo with
out taking any forethought for the
Some courses of action aio so in
evitable in given contingencies that
they may be set down ns future cer
tainties. It is absolutely certain
that in tho event of war with any
maritimo power the United States
would have to occupy the Sandwich
Islands for the protection of this
Coast. Wc could no more allow
them to remain as they aio, a de
fenseless prey to any foreign invader,
than we could suffer the foreigner
to occupy the islands of Santa Bar
baia. The first step which a Secre
tary of the Navy would order in the
event of war would be the occupa
tion of the strategic points on the
islands. Is it wise to postpone this
action until it becomes necessary to
take it in the hurry of the opening
of a campaign? If the thing has
got to be done had it not be better
done at once coollj', deliberately,
after due and ample notice to all
Again, the Hawaiian group is be
coming an important center of pro
duction and coinincicc. The sugar
crop this year is reckoned at 130,
000 tons, nearly twice as much as
the Louisiana crop. Of rice, the
islands yield some ten million pounds
annually, and the product of fruit
and hides is large. Coffee has not
yet been a success on the islands,
but that will come. The population
is small, owing to the excessive
mortality among the Kanakas ;about
half the present population is of
foreign birth, consisting mainly of
Chinese, Portuguese and Japanese.
This handful of people, however,
produce so much merchandise that
the exports of native produce .arc
larger per head than anywhere else
in the world. It stands to reason
that the production will increase.
This is rather a fine territory to be
lying off our coast absolutely in
search of an owner.
The time has passed when filibust
crcrs of Southern birtli wortt ram
paging round the world seeking
what tenitory they could devour
for the propagation of slavery. The
modern American citizen seeks no
unwilling partners in his firm. But if
the people of the Sandwich Islands,
after due notice, should deliberately
vote that their interests would be
promoted by annexation to the
Union, we believe that wc ought to
accept them, and to maintain the
annexation, if necessary by force.
It is not probable that anything of
the kind would be necessary. If
notice were served on England,
France and Germany that the United
States, for reasons to themselves
satisfactory, -withdrew drew from
the compact by which they agreed
not to extend their dominion over
the islands, some correspondence
would piobably follow, but the flur
ry would etui mere. iNo luiropean
power has or can have any interest
in the islands. Certainly none of
them would go to the expense of a
war to prevent their accomplishing
an inevitable destiny. Eutope as
well as the United States would
benefit by their passing under the
American flag, and the danger of an
imbroglio similar to the one which
has arisen over Samoa would be
