FRIDAY, JULY 12, 1889.
In order to have the record of
proceeding:: in the nolle prosequi
case complete, we begin to-day and
shall conclude to-morrow the publi
cation of Mr. Hartwell's brief re
ferred to in Judge McCully's de
cision. Lately there was exhibited in New
York the working model of an elec
tric mail carrying system that if
adopted will revolutionize postal bu
siness between distant cities. It is
estimated it will carry mails from
New York to Boston in two hours,
and in trips live minutes apart carry
all the maiU now received in either
city for the other.
If Hawaii is not to have cable
communication with San Francisco
very shortly, it will not be the fnult
of Mr. Tohn Thomas Waterhouse,
Sr. This merchant prince of Ho
nolulu stirred up interest in the
matter wonderfully immediately on
arrival in San Francisco, and it is
understood he attests his own faith
in the enterprise by subscribing
heavily to the stock.-
Chinese commissioners have lately
been examining Chicago's police and
fire alarm system, and it is said that
before long the most modern fire
au(l police equipments will be pro
vided in Chinese cities. John is
slow, 'but he will "gettee there allee
samee." The Chinese in Honolulu
are at the front in Ore organization,
having an efficient steam engine
"company in the department.
From .an American exchange it is
learned that the Supreme Court of
Ohio has decided that all incum
brances placed upon property with
ta view to preferring one class of
creditors to another are null and
void. J. his wouiu seem to be very
just law and events have proved it
to be required in this Kingdom.
With a little less control of lawyers
and mortgage mongers over our
Legislature, the principle would
have some chance of enactment here.
,The substance of Judge McCully's
decision, as we read it, is that if the
Attorney-General asks leave of the
Court to enter a nolle prosequi, the
Court will not grant the leave unless
satisfied that the case ought to be
nolle pros' cd, but if the Attorney
General without asking any leave of
Court nol, pros, a case, or says he
declines to prosecute', that ends it.
The Judge seems to have given more
attention to the mere form of enter
ing the nol. pros, on the records,
which he controls, than to the act
of nol. pros'ing, which he does not
control. This way of looking at the
matter makes both sides right.
The usual monthly meeting of the
Board -of Representatives was held
last evening at the Bell Tower.
Fifteen members were present. The
chief engineer, Mr. 0. B. Wilson,
A communication from Engine Co.

DAILY BULMIOT: HONOLULU, H. I.,
THE CHINESE QUESTION.
Koitoh Ruu.ktin: Tho record of
the present l.eglblature on the Chi
nese question has not, it scorns., been
fixed clearly enough to prevent quib
bling on its part mxt election, as to
what the legislative record on that
question was. This is evident from
the fact that some legislators who
voted against the Chinese constitu
tional amendment have, from time to
time since then, in explaining their
vote, taken occasion to indicate that
they were in favor of some amend
ment, but not the one in question ;
that if it hud been framed different
ly they would probably have voted
for it; that they regret something
was not done, etc.
Suoh talk, if already indulged in,
is sure to increase in geometrical
ratio as lapse of time on the one
hand gives greater chance to use
such statements without having their
dislngemiotisness exposed, and the
near approach of the elections on
the other hand increase their market
Similar Yiews have found their
way into the editorial columns oi me
Gazette, which is generally conceded
to bt a "pro-Chinese organ," in that
those who control it ate pro-Chinese
at heart and pro-Chinese in the col
umns of their palicr, so far as they
can he and retain their inlluence
over those who, though accustomed
to pin their faith to their views, are
getting so restive at Chinese en
croachment that they will no longer
stand moi e than a thin dilution of
editorial pro-Chinese sentiment.
Such, for instance, as the eulogy on
Chinese industry in redeeming Judge
McCully's swamp, Teccntly pub
lished in its columns. The Gazette
has, since the legislature adjourned,
stated in so many words that some
constitutional amendment was neces
sary to meet the Chinese question.
It therefore is imperative now, in
black and white, to remind all who
now use such talk, or who, under
the pressure of the coming elections,
are likely to use it, that the legisla
constitutional amendment, lias never
been prorogued. If, therefore, these
protestations are honest and sincere,
and not disingenuous and false, the
legislature at the call of the major
ity can now meet and undo the work
they then did. They and they alone
have full power to put these profes
sions into practice, holding as they
do a majority in the legislature, and
under the law ruling this country
until next February. The fact is,
the vole which finally killed the Chi
nese amendment in the legislature
is a continuing one, and each da'
that has since passed and is passing
is a reiterated unmodified reaffirma
tion of the position then taken which
sneaks louder than words. Thev
killed the amendment and every
fragment of it. They offered no
substitute in its place. They de
clined to submit to the people who
sent them there, any proposition by
which the constituencies could an
swer for themselves as to 'what
should be done. Thus they left an
irritating conviction in the popular
mind that the reason the question
was not submitted to them in some
shape was not that they could be
counted upon to kill it, but because
it looked very much us if they in
tended to pass it. The action of
the legislature was but an outcome
of the sentiment of a certain class of
people found in every community,
who evidently consider themselves
the hereditary guardians and con
science keepers of the people, and
who, not content with doing their
own thinking, insist upon thinking
for everybody else as well, and who
claim that if this world and the next
are now going to the devil it is be
cause people nowadays are so un
wise as to insist on doing their own
thinking, instead of handing their
proxies over to those who could
"think so much better for them."
A legislature adhering to its rep
resentative character would reason
this way on the Chinese constitu
tional amendment: "This Chinese
question has arisen and is a live is
sue. There is a great deal of feeling,
and it has got to be settled, and if
this is u representative government,
then there is only one body that can
settle it, mid that is the people.
us bul mi I an amendment
to them, framed so that its adoption
or rejection will settle the issues
raised. It is not as if we were called
upon to pass laws which should an
ticipate the verdict of the people one
way or the other, but it is simply
this: .Shall we submit the question
to the people, reserving our right as
citizens to tnke sides on the stump
or at the' ballot box, as we deem
best?" In other words, a legislative
body which adheres to its represent
ative character is always ready to go
to the people. A legislature which
abandons its representative charac
ter prefers to go anywhere but to
the people, and its secret but vital
creed may be summed up in Van
derbill's famous remark, " Damn
the people." Such attempts by rep
resentatives to dole out what suits
them to their constituents, and to
arbitrarily suppress what t)oesnot,is
as insulting to the electors as it is
fruitless in its results. Such action
sometimes delays, but does not dis
pose of tho issue. It is sure to come
up sooner or later, and must be met,
together with the accumulated bit
terness and distrust that comes from
the knowledge on the part of the
electors that one sldo to that contro
versy would have suppressed the
Jbbuo and kept it from being submit
ted to them if it could have had its
way, and stands at the (jar of public
opinion not ns nn advocate, but as a
To sum up then: W say that
these protestations from certain le
gislators and members of the pro
Chinese party mid their organ are
rot. The action of tho majority of
the legislators at tho extra sossion,
in insisting on keeping the door
partly open to Chinese, coupled
with their action at the regular ses
sion, killing all attempts to confine
Chinese to plantation work,' where
they arc needed, and to prevent
other encroachments by Chinese in
certain occupations which arc al
ready overcrowded and where they
arc not needed, rivets inconlcstihly
on that parly, notwithstanding all its
talk to the contrary, Hint their po
licy is not only to have more Chi
nese when they deem that they need
them, but to nave them jn their own
sweet way, with no check whatever
placed upon these male coolies,
which will prevent them, after serv
ing temporary apprenticeship on the
plantation, to locate themselves
among whites and natives who with
diminishing success are supporting
themselves and families out of more
remunerative classes of labor, and
under the protection of the strong
arm of the law, to coolly root them
out and settle in their places. No
wonder the pro-CWnese paity edge
off from such a barefaced platform
as that; but that is literally just
what they have done, and there
would not have been even the tem
porary lull in the further introduc
tion of Chinese during the past year
or so, had not Minister Thurston
absolutely refused to admit any
more, as the requisition of promi
nent members of the pro-Chinese
party upon the Board of Immigra
tion several times will show. The
pro-Chinese party nt the extra ses
sion insisted. upon leaving the door
open for so many Chineso per year,
even at the risk of ousting the Min
istry, and tried their best to post
pone the whole Restriction Act, but
it would not woik. It is idle, there
fore, for them to Bay that they left
the door open but did not intend to
uso it. They have already attempt
ed so to do. A subservient Minis
try, and a prostrated public senti
ment, will bet the crank going once
more which will bring more Chinese
dribbling into the country, and
which will complete tbe handwriting
on the wall, which is decreeing that
the Anglo-Saxon must accept the
position of a sojourner at the isl
ands, and that the Chinese will?
no, has succeeded him as the set
