WEDNESDAY, JULY 10, 1889.
According to his organ, the
Standard, published in New York,
Mr. Henry George has been meeting
with much success in his campaign
for the land nationalization theory
in Scotland. The working classes,
some prominent politicians, and
even clergymen are among his fol
lowers. Whether sound in the main
or only in a slight degree, the agita
tion of the theory will hear fruit in
the British Islands, where such a re
sult is needed, in making the masses
understand that they huve rights to
stand for in the realm.
In reference to the suggestion of
Kila, we may say tbat, while ready
gladly to support a holiday e. o. d.,
the factregarding July 31st is that it
liasbeo:i'!ndonedas a national fes
tival. The day of formal restora
tion of tho flag by Admiral Thomas
at what is now ThomasBSqunrc has
come to be observed as the single
holiday commemorative of Hawaiian
Independence. Mr. Thrum says
that day is November 29th. and the
Government annually proclaims that
as Independence Day. Let the H.
Y. & R. A., however, proclaim a
regatta for any date in the interval
and the Bulletin will assist in mak
ing it a holiday.
The Custom House returns pub
lished in this issue are interesting
and not at all diseouraging in their
exhibit of our exports. They show
the large increase in our leading
staple, sugar, of nearly sixteen mil
lion pounds for the past six months
as compared with the corresponding
period of the previous year. There
is a heavy decrease of about thirty
per cent, in the rice exportation,
and an enormous falling off of
eighty-nine percent, in wool. As no
wool is manufactured at home, the
almost wiping out of that export is
to be deplored. The only other de
creases, however, arc small ones in
goat and sheep skins and the obli
teration of awa. As the disappear
ance of this last may mean increased
home consumption of the seductive
root, its absence from the return
this year is to be regretted on other
than commercial grounds. Banana
exports have increased by a third
over the previous six months, while
coffee, in which interest has
greatly revived within the past year
or more, Bhowsa gratifying increase
of 945 per cent. Taro flour has
come up again with 3,700 lbs., being
almost wholly increase.
SUGAR TRUST AND THE
Willet & Hamlin's "trade circular
asserts that the sugar trust cleared
$14,000,000 last year, an amount
nearly equal to one-third of the cost
of all the sugar (1,500,000 tons)
consumed in the United States. As
the refineries outside kept up with
trust prices, their profits arc in pro
portion with those of the trust, ex
cept as the latter has saved expenses
by having many refineries under one
consolidated administration. If,
therefore, the refineries standing
aloof owe a portion of their great
profits to the existence of the trust,
it is no wonder that the judgment
obtained in New York against the
combination is not followed up. It
is, moreover, impossible to believe,
on all the facts regarding the mar
ket so far submitted, that the rise
in prices is more than to a limited
extent due to the trust's operations.
The European market, uninfluenced
by anything in America except the
actual consumption or fitful specu
lation, has much to do with the
prices in the United Slates, and has
been steadily on the rising grade ;
while diminished ratio to consump
tion all over of beet supplies on the
continent and disasters to the cane
crops in Cuba and Javr, which have
been the assigned causes of the in
creasing scale, arc facts beyond dis
pute. It is safe to say that the
United States public will not rise
and crush the trust, however illegi
timate or illegal its methods may be
proved in the abstract, until it is

LADIES' OPERAS, AUCTIONS AND
Editor Bvllltix : After the some
what seiious articles in this morn
ing's "P. C. A." (said to be com
municated), I think perhaps a little
fun would be a relief, so venture to
intrude on your columns for the in
sertion of the following:
It has lone been known that our
auctions (at the houses of departing
residents) have been the one joy of
our Indies and good housewives
there to go, to sec and ,bc seen, and
to sit for two or three hours in state,
bidding for anything they saw any
one else wanted (especially that Mrs.
B.), say about a qunitor of its value,
or double its value, perfectly regard
less of the consequences for they
don't pay, "don't you know," it is
the poor husband, who is not there,
who has to face the music afterward.
"But then it was such a bargain, and
just what we wanted, and Mrs. C.
told me it was very cheap, etc.
Well, all this auction circus is
nothimr. eomnared to our steamer
departure day, when the band plays
on the wharf, and all the bon ton go
down to see their friends leave our
shores. Not content with going down,
dressed to kill, with escort of some of
our mashers, but they must go on
board to the great inconvenience of
those who really have to go on busi
ness, or to see their relatives or
friends off. "But what is the use of
going down to the wharf if you don't
go on board?" You would count
for nobody if not seen on the deck
in converse with some interesting
passengers, or one of the brass but
toned olilcersof the gallant steamer;
and then they are happy to be seen
at that elevation by tue common nu
raff under the shed of the steamer
wharf who have the modesty to
stay there (having no business on
I will state in common justice to
our indies that it is not they alone
who do all these things, for we have
a large and wonderful population in
this city, who are full of business on
that day, although it is never known
what half of them do on other days
to pay their hoard. To the observer
it is "really amusing to watch who
goes on board, not only once but
often, up and down thnt narrow
gangway ladder a perfect rush,
with no one to control or stop them.
I would humbly suggest two accom
modation ladders, one to go up, the
other to go down, with an officer in
charge of cncli which would be
quite the correct thing, "don't you
know," and the aspirants to pub
licity would show to great advantage,
especially on then- final exit from the
steamer. The dresses and headgear
would show conspicuously, to say
nothing of the wreaths of flowers, etc.
The glorious Fourth, of 1889, has
passed and gone, and we now can
look forward to our own holiday, the
31st, and there is no reason why we
should not have a regatta and base
ball match on that day, for from
then till November 16th (the King's
birthday) we have no holiday set
down to be observed by the authori
ties. So I merely suggest that some
thing be done between tins and
then for, with all our fine yachts
and boats, it would be a pity to let
it go by, especially as the last yacht
race on the 4th was "something line"
for four of the five yachts in that
race came in within a few minutes of
each other, after a long course to
Diamond Head and down to Pearl
River and back, and as we may have
a more favoiable time for yachts on
the 31st, why not try it on?
THE JUDICIARY AND EXECUTIVE.
Editok Bulletin: It was a mat
ter of surprise and concern to me to
find, on mv return from a thiee
months' absence, that a very serious
conflict was in existence between the
executive and judiciary departments.
I had thought that, while learning
what I could in the matter, I should
express no opinion, pending the deci
sion of the remaining question by
Justice McCulIy. It docs seem to
me, however, that a word or two
upon the suggestions set forth in the
letter of " Pro Bono Publico" this
morning, will not be out of place,
although I do not generally notice
The writer does not distinguish
between the question of the legal
right of the Attorney-General to de
cline to prosecute a case and the
policy or propriety of doing so. The
question is not whether the Attorney
General made a mistake as a matter
of policy in asking for the entry of a
nolle prosequi, but whether he had
a perfect constitutional right to do
I have yet to hear I think I may
say that any lawyer has held that
the Executive is above the Supreme
Court and that the members of the
former are not amenable to impri
sonment or other penalties for of
fences against law and order.
Everyone knows that for criminal
offences anyone can be arrested,
tried, convicted and sentenced ac
cording to law, whether he he Attorney-General
or Judge of the Su
The question in this contempt case
appears to have Bottled down to this,
whether tho Attorney-General, for
no crime, but for fearlessly assert
ing what he claimed was his official
right, could be imprisoned iu a coin
Uioatdli In lotao of the Uulttd.
Slates tho Courts have deohncd to
mo coorcion to compel tho Governor
of it Stnto to perform his Impcrntivo
statutory duty as inconsistent with
tho division of powers of govern
ment into three co-ordinate depart
ments. Tho Courts take this view in
Rhode Island, Now Jersoy, Illinois,
Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Ar
kansas and others. Where the duty
of the public ofllccr is discretionary
and not defined by statute, even if he
be n subordinate ofllccr, no Courts
undertake to control his discretion
or to imprison him for demand
ing the right to exercise such discre
tion. The extent to which courts
will interfere is to compel the officer
to exercise the discretionary power
and do something.
To place the heads of the execu
tive department in jail by order of
any judge on no other ground than
because the judge regards their
language towards him, and not their
acts, ns contempt is not a course
provided by any system of gov
ernment or which would allow the
continuance of independent branches
lu conclusion, I may say that the
fever heat referred to by Pro
Bono Publico appears to have sub
sided somewhat. All have a right
to expect a dispassionate decision of
the remaining question, and that it
will not be lightly regarded, imping
ing as it does upon the distinctive
duties and powers of the two de
partments. W. R. Castle.
