SATURDAY, AUG. 31, 1-S80.
Ily Unlllco II.
Those who roiled nl the Kwa. Hail'
nay enterprise can now see llio rniU
being laid. It is a pity thai all the
p'ptty. Insular prejudice of the coun
try cannot be laid with the rails.
It will not do to force issues upon
the people. They must not be
made to face the alternative of any
particular Cabinet or a condition of
anarchy. This would be contrary
to the spirit of the Constitution.
The Executive and the Legislative
should bo preserved distinct as well
in the public mind as in the written
law. Some people may think that
the administration is open to criti
cism for faults or failures. Other
may harbor the suggestion that pos
sibly the nation ma' desire or be
the better for a change or lecon
struction of the Cabinet. There is
a class whose members boil over
with wrath at any such display of
doubt toward their cherished doc
t lines of the infallibility and impec
cability of the men they find it for
their interest to follow. These peo
ple should stand on the top of Tan
talus a while and let the trade-wind
ool their heated prejudices. After
a moderate degree of cxposuro they
may be ready to confess that the
political skepticism referred to does
not necessarily involve antagonism
to Reform. The' may even com
prehend that the present Ministry
did not make Reform, but that con
trariwise Reform made the present
Ministry. Reform, as enshrined in
t'e hearts of those who have upheld
it hitherto, must therefore judge
the creatures of its handiwork, and
not allow these to set up a golden
calf to represent their maker and
command all the people to bow
down and worship it. Should the
idea endeavored to be conveyed in
the foregoing lines of this paragraph
be pondered over for a week, it may
furnish sufllcient mental excitation
for the electoral mind upon the
point involved during that brief
Whatever purblind politicians, w ith
monkey minds that get all their
ideas through imitation, may think
of the foregoing sentiments, they
arc not indited in antagonism to the
personnel of the Minisliy. They
arc simply a plea for liberty of opin
ion to the people and of action to
the Legislature. If the Ministers
are true Reformers, as I doubt not
they have meant to be, they will
not want to hold ollicc unless they
Hatisfj' an independent Legislature
elected on a platform of reformatory
and progressive policy. Only one
half of the original Reform Cabinet
now remains in ofllee after a lapse
of two years. Yet there has been
no convulsion in either nature or
social order trateable to the Minis
terial changes. How ridiculous,
then, is it to place eternal principles
of good government in the false po
sition of being bound up with the
political fortunes of nny four men.
Some who shriek charges of infl
delity to Reform against any who
venture to discuss affairs without
quailing in apprehension of the
party lash are recommended to look
nearer home for objects of their
frantic wrath. Let them get after
those who, having gained seat in
the Legislature under a solemn
pledge to support the original Re
form Ministry, almost from the
opening hour of the flr.t session be
wail an irritating and f.ictioua op
position. t Spare some virtuous in
dignation directed at persons whose
llltlu lingers have done mere for re
sponsible government than their
accusers' whole bodies, to contem
plate the dastardly course of a
clique that, showing the white
feather when clouds were in the sky,
appeared in the arena when the
storm seemed to have passed, in
triguing to oust from the places of
honor those who had maintained the
cause of'Rcfonn through thick and
thin. Bestow also at least a little
of an inquiring spirit upon the in
nermost camp Itself, wlteie perhaps
ome deplorable lapses from mutual
fidelity might be discovered.

"Trust not the world," siid St.
Augustine. It begins to look as if
Aug. must have had pretty hard
work, in his time, making collection,
MR. KINNEY'S LETTEIfi
Em-tort UuuxTis! Allow mc to
glance at some of the items contain
ed in Mr. Kinney's crcnt letter,
"The Problem of the Hour." It
appears to me that some of the pre
mises assumed by Mr. Kinney rust
measurably on a sandy foundation.
However,if Ids declata ions are solid
facts, which he undoubtedly believes,
his aigtiments aie well put. If, on
the other hand, they are not facts,
his arguments fail, not being lb inly
founded. His declarations should
be critically enquired into and un
disputed proof demanded before so
serious a matter should be under
taken as calling tho Legislature to
gether for the purpose of making n
change in our Constitution.
The spirit and substance of the
letter, as I understand it, is: "The
plantations have brought into thin
country a coolie class of cheap
laborers, many of whom have spread
over the country and crowded both
kanaka and white laborers out of
employment, 'taking bread out of
their mouths,' and in consequence
many of the kanakas are idle and
suffeiiug and white people nre
driven from the country, and If the
plantations don't consent for their
own good to have a Chinese restric
tion clause placed in our Couslitli
lion, such as these white citizens
and kanakas demand, tlicy will take
part against the planters at the next
election and oust both them and
their friends from any say in the
affairs of the Government, and so
change the Constitution as to entire
ly prevent any. further influx of
cheap laborers from coming here
until the plantations do comply with
their wishes," or, to simmer down a
little, "The plantations arc respon
sible for every bankrupt and every
unsuccessful trader, every id'c
kanaka and white man in the coun
try, because they have brought here
cheap coolie laborers to work on the
plantations, and if they don't force
them to stoj) on the plantations or
send them out of the country there
will be another 'revolution.' "
We think no ono will deny that
the above summary is the substance
of Mr. Kinney's letter. Hut from
my standpoint neither white men
nor kanakas have been rooted out of
employment or had to labor for
lower wages on account of the Chi
nese being here. I have beeu told
by old plantation manager and
Mr. Kinney must be conversant with
that laci that before the Chinese
came to these islands they hired ka
nakas to woik on their plantations
for si- dollars per month and board.
Now, kanakas' wnge-s are three
limes that sum. Kukaiau pays
every kanaka that labors on the
plantation tweuti'-iix dollars per
month and board, and 1 verily be
lieve that every able-bodied kanaka
can ft nd employment if ho will only
go where the labor is wanted. I
have frequently heard plantation
managers say that they preferred
kanaka Iaboiersto any other nation
ality on their plantations. Does
this look as though the natives have
been rooted out of employment or
compelled to accept starvation wages
because cheap laboicrs have been
brought in as '.'hewers of wood and
diawcrs of water." We know many
of the natives are not laboring, but
it is their own fault. They wou't
We believe the reverse of what
Mr. Kinney claims is the real truth.
that is, instead of kanakas and
v hite people being rooted out by
this cheap labor, more kauakas and
more white people aie required tf,
pei form the better paid class of
labor teamsters, lunas, superin
tendents, etc., now, than would have
yet been wanted had this low
class of labor never been brought
in. The mre low class that can be
used, the more and higher pi iced
white and kanaka laborers will be
wanted, the more wealth will be
pioduced, the country generally be
made more prosperous, and less
complaint heard of "hard times."
As early as the building of Wab
ash canal in America labor was too
scarce to suit the fancy of its pro
jectors and they imported some
Irishmen to work on the canal.
Then commenced a bloody opposi
tion against the Irishmen by the na
tives, they using the same identical
arguments as are used here to-dnj'
against the Chinamen, and they en
forced their arguments with physi
cal weapons. The natives were
then getting eight dollars per month,
and they thought tho canal work was
all the labor them was or would be
so far as they eould bee, and if the
Irishmen were allowed to do that,
the natives would have to suffer.
Hut the Irish and other low class
labor continued to come from Ku
lope in increased numbers; the na
tives began to climb, nnd supplied
the brains and other essentials fur
this low labor class. Now thin
same class gets twice eight dollars
per month for their labor; food,
clothing and luxuries have cheapen
ed and the native no longer relishes
tint drudgery work he once fought
for. He puts his brain to work,
gets up his machine and does the
woik of a dozen men. Ho has in
creased his wages, his wealth, his
importance, and made his country
famous, And no doubt America is
at least fifty years ahead to-day in
mnterial development to what she
would have been lnul this low class
labor been kept out of tho country,
and if more of this low class labor is
wanted here it is a good sign of ma
I will ask Mr. Kinney who flllod
those 2000 or 4000 better paid post
lions that he speaks of before the
Daily BitLLiaiut uojHOJiUi.t', a; i, Au&tmx4 Hi, to,
Chinamen" got Into litem ) Wbitt kind
pf positions are they? Would kana
kas fill those places if abandoned by
the Chinamen? Above all, arc they
qualified to fill tliein?
This question of rooting out of
employment kanakas and white la
borers appears to bo theonlv "bone
of contention" and danger as repre
sented by Mr. Kinney, and ns there
appears to be two sid'es to tho ques
tion, would it not be well for the
leaders oT the two factions if they
can be found to get together null
appoint a committee of five able
men, two from each paity and those
four select the fifth, and let this com
mittee thoroughly InvcstimUp the
whole question and repot t ifjon it
by the first of November next, so
that the public could understand
the question ; and I feel quite sur6
there is patriotism sulllcicnl in
cither part to recede fiom a wrong
position if it is once shown to them,
and so when election comes we will
all be on one side the side of good
government and If it Is shown Hint
tho Chinese are eating tho rice and
pork that knnnkn3 and white men
should earn and eat, nil must join
to enforce some measure of iclicf.
Forcing the coolie to work only
on the plantations and the social
and anti-civilizing effects of his pre
sence here, are different questions
and deserve serious consideration,
and I believe the planter can be re
lied upon to do his share of any
thing he believes for the public
good. Mr. Kinney is a little too
hard on the planters when'he inti
mates that they have done or are
doing wrong, or will do wrong,
hence the necessity of an amend
ment to our Constitution to prevent
'hem. J. M. IIounuk.
AMENDMENT f(f A SERMON.
Kumm Rri.i.inijc: The political
speech delivered as a sermon en hut
Sunday evening by the Reveiend
Mr. Beckwith was somewhat of a
surpiiscto me, for I did not think
it the light sort of spiritual pabu
lum to administer to his flock.
In making his application of tho
lesson taught by the late insurrec
tion where Uic .says, "let us listen
to this summons and by a new 1 ti
with perpetual peace within our bor
ders, etc." he should havo added,
"restore to the poor natives their
full right of franchise, which is
theirs by every right under heaven,
and protect them from the hordes
of unman led Asiatic pagans who
have enriched a goodly number of
my lambs and caused them to swell
with their unseemly pride and im
poitauce." A sermon of this soit would have
been more appropriate under the
circumstances, and 1 trust that the
reverend gentleman's next political
discourse will be an improvement on
ins last. Justice.
