It looked scarcely complimentary
to the Chinese amendment meeting
for the medical superintendent of
the insane asylum to ottend, for the
purpose, as he said, of feeling the
assembly's pulse. As no charges
have been preferred in the Police
Court against anybody by Dr.
Tucker in consequence of his diag
nosis, his employers the Ministers
will doubtless have concluded that
an intelligent and resolute purpose
and not a spasmodic mania is the
mainspring of the movement.
Two experienced railway express
men have gone from America to
Europe with the intention of organ
izing express systems on the plan of
the gicat ones in the United States.
The trouble will be to get the rail
way corporations of the old world
persuaded of the advantages of tli2
proposed innovation. A London
despatch says "it is impossible to
convince the railroads here that an
express on the American model
would pay handsomely, as the par
cel that arrives in two days gives
just as much satisfaction as if it
came to hand in twenty-four hours."
The Bur.i.rrix has been requested,
to submit to the Tramways Com
pany that a large number of their
patrons, who live beyond the Pa
lania switch, would like to have the
cars run through without change to
Kaniehameha .Schools. It is not the
delay of several minutes usually oc
curring at transfers that these peo
ple so much object to, but-they ap
prehend that in the wet season they
will be drenched with rain and have
to wade through mud in getting from
one car to another. There are other
annoyances connected with the
transfer the scrambling for seats
when there is a crowd, and the
necessity of looking out for passing
horses and carriages, and avoiding
the heels of the car horses when
they are changing ends. AM of
which is respectfully submitted.
"Democrat" gives the Government
credit for a wise administration of
the country's resources. Generally
speaking none but. opposing parti
sons can quarrel with the commend
ation. Indeed, none hut practiced
villains in politics could have braved
other than the attempt to give us
decent government under the circum
stances surrounding tho inaugura
tion of the Reform Ministry. There
is, however, no reason extant for
the suppression of outspoken criti
cism of details. Private parties
have had disputes in and out of the
courts with-tho Government. These
feel sore doubtless and probably
(sympathetic friends make a halo of
discontent round them. Thoughtful
tnen have objected to what they
deem an excess of latitude taken by
Ministers before the Legislature and
in their offices. Jealous watchers
have yewed witli alarm an apparent
disposition of the Cabinet to evade
the strict operation of thu Auditor's
Act, after a previous incumbent hud
been worried out of tho oliico for al
leged Iaxness in performing his
functions. To impute antagonism
:igainst good government to people
who spunk their minds regarding
what they consider administrative
defects, sjtnply evinces a disposition
lo take the people by the throat and
clioko them into accord with every
thing emanating from tho sacred
image of Itcform. Let us admit
that it is doubtful if other four men
could have licnn chosen and have
accepted tlio Cabinet otllces, who
would not have made an equal num
ber of deviations from the standard
set up in 1887 to those of this ad
ministration. Still, there is nothing
that will sooner woik deterioration
in the quality of government than a
super-sciiMtivencss on tho part of
Ministers to scrutiny of their course,
with, on tho pint of t lit public, an
indolent acooplnnce without investi
gation of thu uatuo of good gou'rn
ment for the thing itself. An inde
pendent public opinion is essential
to getting an independent Legisla
ture, without which free popular

OUR JURY SYSTEM.
Kditou Hu.i.ktin : In every
country where the jury system Ib in
vogue except the Hawaiian Islands
jurors arc drawn for the panel,
from lists of voters or taxpayers,
by some process which leaves the
personnel of the jury the subject of
chance: i.e., by lot, which is the
only fair method. Here, the draw
ing is regulated by Sec. 1, Chap.
XVII., Laws of 1870, which reads:
"Each Governor, in concert with
some Judge of a Court of Record,
shall prepare semi-annually, in the
months of March and September, a
list of names of fifty persons
residing within their respective gu
bernatorial divisions, wiio, in me
opinion of such Governor or Judge,
are fit to servo as jurors ."
This is amended hv Sec. 5, Chap.
XXXVII., Laws of "l888,as follows:
"The duty heretofore imposed upon
the respective Governors relating
to tho preparing of jury lists and
the drawing of "juries is hereby
transferred to the Chief Clerk of the
Supreme Court for the Inland of
Oahu." lly a method of "disting
uishing" (judicially speaking) our
Supremo Court have decided (in the
now celebrated case whore ttie Attorney-General
challenged the entile
panel, drawn when the "Chief
Clerk" was in America) that the
"Chief Clerk" means any clerk of
the Supreme Court.
So here we have the questionable
system presented, of the rights of
litigants in all the most important
cases of the kingdom to say noth
ing of the rights of those en initially
charged with matters perhaps in
volving the question of libeity or
life- entrusted absolutely to a panel
of men "prepared" by any of the
Clerks of the Supreme Court, with
out redress or remedy in case of
miscarriage from any cause ani
mus, carelessness, bad judgment.
wrong information, or otherwise.
If ft be answered that experience
shorrs there is no fearifrom such pos
sibilities, the reply rests in the very
case above-mentioned, wherein the
test was made by challenging the
panel. The average man would
hesitate before being convinced
that a panel of twenty-four men,
fairlv dtawu. could embrace so
many lately discharged Govern
ment employees and so many I'nown
opposers of the Government's po
licy, on notorious matters which
were then pending for adjudication
by and before the said panel. It
has been said in explanation aiid
as an alleged fact it was an open se
cret at the time that tho list from
which the panel was- "prepared"
(to use the word of the statute),
w.is furnished technically by the
Marshal, but really by a junior
clerk in his ollicii, who, by the way,
has since been discharged for violat
ing the secrets of the ollice, in di
vulging information to parties
against wIiohc interests certain judi
cial papers passed through the said
ollice in their regular judicial
While such an explanation, If
true, may entirely exonerate from a
moral standpoint any one who is
lecally charged with tho duty of
providing lurors: and while it was
never claimed, so far as wo know,
that any "interest" attached to any
such circumstances connected yith
jury drawing as might be mildly
called a strong coincidence or a re
markable excuptiou, as the case
might be: yet the admitted fact of
the possibility of such coincidences
or exceptions affords cause for sen
on nlleetioii on the part of all in
terested in the purity of the admin
istration of justice, the rights of
litigants in our Courts of jlecord,
and the higher rights of any bo un
fortunate as to have their liberty or
lives adjudicated upon by nine men
out of twelve, "prepared" by any
such posslblo process. And the
danger of abuse creeping into the
preparation of tho list is tenfold
intensified by tho fact that nine men
out of twelve give a verdict hero,
instead of the entire twelvo, as else,
where. It is true that the words of
the statute, "in concert with some
judge, etc.," may be claimed a9 a
checks hut tliis is theoretical, ra
ther than practical, as any one
knows who has the least experience
of tho present imperfect system.
The seriousness of tho whole mat.
ter is recall ed by a report which has
gained sonio publicity to the effect
that certain native Hawaiinns known
as thick ami thin adherents to the
"Missionary" parly have been cull
er! into council by certain gentlemen
in "high places," uud instructed lo

ing and disposition of certain other
native Ilnwniinni, toward those
against whom criminal chaiges nic

of July "Olh, with a view to secure
a panel who arc likely to convict.
If there is tho least foundation in
fact for this, then it is timo to take
down the motto "Fint justitia, runt
ciclum," from the Suprcmu (Joint
chamber, dissolve our Couits, and
let society return to chaos. Such
atrocity in the name of Justice
would be so stupendous that one
hesitates to offer comment till the
truth bo known.
Itul is not one justified in feeling
uneasy under a system which admits
of tuch a possibility? The remedy
is of course in legislation. But the
class of legislators which this country
has of late years been blessed with
have succeeded in wasting session
after session in wrangling over petty
matters (celebrated "fence" debate
last session) instead of grasping and
intelligently dealing with broad
questions of government: have been,
in fact, straining themselves to alter
circumstances to tit the mossgrown
laws of the semi-feudal period of
Hawaii, rather than changing laws
to keep pace with changing circum
stancosand conditions. For Heaven's
sake let us have a little "Reform"
in substance as well as in name, and,
pending legislation, let the Govern
ment see to it that they purge them
selves (as to those whom Dr.
Wharton describes as having "the
