It would lie madness on the part
of unequivocal supporter of the
present Cabinet to insist upon an
endorsement of the Ministers in a
patty platform; while, on tho other
hand, it would be unjust to the
Cabinet for the dissatisfied wing of
Heformcis to demand a change in
its peuouuel, individually or col
lectively, in advance of the people's
veidlct at the polls. Although the
disieutients within the camp are
certainly not an insignificant minor
ity, they may not be an irreconcil
able one, provided remedies for
what they deem evils or grievances
Pledged to neither Sect hoi Party,
But eitablishcd for the benefit ofull.
THURSDAY, AUG. 8. 1889.
" ' '.. ....".'' ' " - "
The French Senate has adopted
the Panama Canal relief bill fiom
the Deputies without amendment.
If staying powers amount to any
thing the French will (lis that ditch
if it takes a quaiter of a century.
The London Standard declares
that in some mysterious way mos
quitoes have been introduced into
the tight little isle, and it predicts
that they will soon become numer
ous. This acquisition may be part
of the Hawaiian stocks floated 011
the Loudon market. If so, the Kng
lish public will find it an undis
countable security. The owner-: of
Persian powder and buhach Will,
however, leap all the dividends.
Some Hawaiians are concerned
over a icport that the Government
is about to suppress a portion of the
native press. We hope that such a
severe measure will not be adopted.
It would be like Bitting on the safety,
valve of a boiler to prevent an ex
plosion. All that is necessary is to
hold the writers, printers and pub
lishers of seditious utterances, or
inflammatory appeals calculated to
incite to violence anypaitof the
populace, to strict account for what
may be issued in those respects, and
to suppress the circulation of papers
discovered in time with such matter.
But absolute suppression of the na
tive press in opposition to the pre
sent order would, we believe, only
be adding fuel to the pent-up fires
of disaffection. Free speech has al
ways been regarded as the safety
valve of Anglo-Saxon communities.
For the foregoing considerations,
we should advise keeping the per
sonal composition of the Cabinet
out of the eleciion issues. Leave
tho hands of the Legislature free to
deal with that matter, only perhaps
pledging candidates for reform to
act in conference, if a majority of
them be elected, to nominate a now
or reconstituted Cabinet in case
their assembled wisdom decides a
change to be necessarj There is
a weak spot in the Constitution as
to tho appointment of Ministers;
but unanimity of action on the part
of the majoiity of any Legislatute
would obviate a prolonged dead
lock, unless the appointing power
assumed revolutionary ground. A
course such as that here recommend
ed ought to meet the views of those
who hold that responsibility of gov
ernment would be enhanced 1)V hav
ing the Cabinet elected by the Le
gislature. Certainly, as was long
ago observed in England, the iutent
of popular government is largely de
feated when representatives are
elected niciery to register the de
crees and policy of a Ministry.
The voice of the people ought to
be heard in meetings all over the
kingdom. And, if lcform is to be
established, its suppoiters must
agree to disagree upon all that is
non-essential to the main object.
Local meetings should send dele
gates to a general convention for
crystallising the popular icwsinto
a declaration of the issues to be
contended for at the polls. The
unit rule should he adopted iu such
a convention for the making of a
platform as well as in the work that
ought to come later of nominating
candidates. This may be repudiat
ed as a presumptuous and imprac
ticable dictum, but obedience to it
would seem at this juncture indis
pensable to the preservation of res
The general election will be held
on the first Wednesday in Febiuary
next, or less than six mouths hence.
This leaves an interval for prepara
tion short enough, considering all
that requires to be done if the cause
of constitutional government is to
be perpetuated in triumph. To the
end just noted it is necessary that a
host of conflicting opinions bo
harmonized, that many hobbies
heavily ridden be stowed away in
the background, so that the supremo
question of maintaining responsible,
representative institutions iu their
integrity may stand out clear and
pre-eminent in the issues.
Kditok Iki.u.Tix: Yesterday a
luna, in ehatge of prisoners on the
public load, was seen at an uptown
saloon under the influence of liquoi
and brandishing a levolver iu the
faces of those present.
I leain that an anest was made
in the above case and the party lock
ed up, but no entry was made on
the Station House lecord. Another
proof of the necessity for an over
hauling of the Police Department.
So long as tho law is administered
in biicli a discriminating manner,
just so long we will henr unpleasant
reflections on the huccess of icform.
This seems to me to be a case
that our Board of Prison Inspectors
might inquire into, as men of tiiis
stamp are hardly qualified to have
charge of a criminal clement while
abioadon the sticets of out city.

Considering tho vnsl importance involved in connection with Life Insurance, anil the linturnl inference to be
taken from a lending of the many pamphlets, cltoulnrs. and advertisements of tlie Equitable Life Assurance So

ulmed to make the comparisons plain enough to "LET KVEKY EYE NEGOTIATE EOIt ITSELF."

the,lntest icport of the New York Ins. Dcpl., proves Ihc advoitisemcnt "padded" to the extent of $1,720,312.
The Equitablc's GROSS surplus is only 819,008,402 and fiom this amount should be deducted the sum of $13,
812,983 already accrued on Tontine and other policies for which special class of policy holders it is simplv held
in trust and cannot be used in any manner for the pi otcction or profit of any new member. If the S100,000 of
capital stock be also deducted the Equitablc's general surplus is shown lo be $5, 155,419.

, From 1803 to 1889 the interest receipts of The Mutual Life was more than sufllcient to nav all death Iorspb

not enough to pay its death claims by twelve millions of dollars. The total outgo for both death claims and ex

The Reform Parly's platform that
carried the last eleciion included nn
avowal of confidence and a pledge
of support to the original Reform
Cabinet. This was proper in view
of the fact that the Cabinet had not
had a full and fair tiial of its capa
city. As falls to the lot of every
Ministry in all repiescntativo gov
ernments, tic Reform Ministry have
not satisfied all who supported thejii
on that occasion. How extended
the dissatisfaction may be it ie iui-
