The scandal alleged to exist in
the Ilonokaa policcforce is a serious
one and ought to receive attention
at once from headquarters. We
could fain hope that it is a case of
mistaken identity but for the fact
that the complaint comes from a
most credible source.
There is a complaint from the
corner-of Bcretania street and Union
lane, that tho drawing of water by
the sprinkling car is not done with
out leaving a great pool on the side
walk, in consequence of which pedes
trians are forced out into the road.
This should be remedied immedi
ately. A New York paper deprecates the
shooting of chicken thieves and cnb
b.igo'v garden depredators, on the
ground that these worthies do not
intend bodily harm to anj'hody, and
since capital punishment for such
offenses has long since been abolish
ed, the death penalty should not be
inllicted ejctia-judicinlly therefor.
The trouble in Honolulu is that
some of these gentry come round
like walking arsenals with pistols
and knives, while those not adopt
ing warlike guise have not the cour
tesy to send their cards in advance
with the assurance that they mean
only to make a friendly call.
The hack inspector is generally
found where he is wanted. Hut
even Homer nods occasionally, and
Oflicer Macy was not present at the
departure of the steamer W. (J.
Hall. In consequence there was
home confusion and the Minister of
the Interiors carriage, containing
his wife and chd'l, was run into by
a hack. The inspector ought not
to he put on any detail, or allow
anj personal engagement to occur,
when ail event is in-progress which
draws mDy cai Wages to one point.
If his absence is unavoidable any
lime, a substitute should he fur
nished by the police watch.
THE CHiHESEQU ESTIOH .
The Anti-Chinese amendment
means (das9 legislation and many
bewail the breach that will thus be
made n the fiec institutions of the
country by the recognition of any
such principle or lack of principle,
conveniently . forgetting that this
breach, if breach it be, has already
and long since been made and by
their own hand, the only difference
being that it was formeily done in
support of laws which strongly en
listed their individual sympathies,
hucIi as the law prohibiting the sale
of liquor to natives and not in sup
port of legislation that they have no
Still two wiongs do not make a
right and mauy aru'uffected by this
argument against class legislation,
wtlb do not rbMizd tiittt tlic practical
choice left to tho country now is
cither the modification of our insti
tutions or the loss of them alto
gether. When cheap labor in this,
country shall have run its course,
the whites that arc left cannot loin,'
"police" the countiy let alone run
ning a high standurd of constitu
tional representative government,
and in lase of riot or insurrection
would be as helpless as children.
The country must then inevitably
drift under the guns of a foieign
power for relief and that means an
infinitely greater breach in our free
institutions, a far more serious,
lowering of our standards of self
government than will take place if,
making use of the principle of class
legislation already incorporated by
our opponents into the legislation of
the country when It suited their own
purposes, we extend Us application
for the public safety and with the
public approval to irreconcilable
aliens who are overriding the coun
try, institutions' and all.
The truth is, the introduction of
this cheap labor was the first radical
departure from safe prcccdeut, and
all thnt has since followed in the
way ot cnecKing ami limning us
rights to the deterioiation of our
institutions are but the widening
circle of waves caused by that first
plunge. The restiaints of the labor
contract sjstem, the tacit exclusion
nf these people from political power
crystalli.ed at last into law by the
new Constitution and the attempt
to limit their industrial privileges
are but the successive instinctive
efforts of the State to preserve her
robe of fiee civilization intact by
drawing it closer and nioie exclu
sively around herself and her own
children, again and yet again, as
she his found this alien mass from
time to time in their aggteisivc dis-
regaid treading and trampling upon
It seems strange that many of
those who have poured thec people
in upon our free institutions should
appear in the fiont ranks of those
w ho still insist and expect those in
stitutions not to stagger, faint or le
lax under this ever-ineroasing bur
den. Better to lower the standaid
of our institutions and retain them
than cling to standards impossible
with the class of people we have to
deal with and lose our independence
'that sermon again.
EirtTon Bum-itix: The political
sermon on tho late insurrection de
Iheiedbythc Rev. Mr. Bcckwith
on Sunday evening, August 2."), for
a inix'luie ot bounce, spite and
gush, takes the, cake. The sentence,
"a cat iiuy look at a king now,"
which mated u sensation, only goes
to show what small nairow souls
there are among his congregation.
Farther along he says, "That daj' of
peril is GodS summons to us to
place ourselves to dieir prosperity,
to devote our wealth to their eleva
tion." If the Rev. Mr. Heckwith
had preached a sermon at that lime
the principles of which could have
gained the plaudits of mankind at
large, instead ol the small clique
around him, lie would hare preach
ed something like the following:
That day of peril is God's summons
to us to allow no pioperty qualifica
tion, lo stand in the way ot giving
the natives their just rights in the
ote for nobles. Let us commence
at once and be honest with this peo
ple, and give them their just rights
in everything, which we, claiming to
be Christum people, liae sadly
neglected in the past. Then there
will come that joy, peace, and hap
piness tlnoiighout the lar.d which
arsenals, nlle?, and all such un
godly appendages, can never bring
us. He also might have added who
ever heard of taking the vote fiom
people of their own count ty, who
have not the necessary pioperty
qualification, and giving it to stran
gers, mid then expect the natives to
quietly lie down and lick the chains
that binds them. It is too much to
ask it is unnatural. We can never
create right in an unjust cause out
of might. A sermon something of
that sentiment may have caused at
first a little more sensation among
hi Hock than the one of August 2i,
but they would no doubt hae seen
the evil of their ways and recovered
with a better digestion, and pcihapB
have caused them to practise clean
er and better Christian principles in
the future, than they have shown in
the p.ist. Nkmo.

AHHEXATIOH, OR PROTECTOR
ATE? Kiiitou 15i;i.i.i:tin: The Hon.
Mi. Carter, who is supposed to he
in Washington, attending to his du
ties as Hawaiian Ambassador, but
who has of laic been drawing his
salary without earning it i. o., if
hu has diawn it since leaving
Washington has been suflieiently
thou 'htftil lo have himself Inter
viewed by tlio Advertiser recently,
will a view to denying u current
rumor which was published in the
Oiaio, to tho effect that he was nb-
?cnl fioin liii oillclal post to try sunt
work up a scheme of annexation.
Whether it has occurred to the
Oiaio that Mr. Carter might not
have left Washington for any such
purpose, yet still is engaged therein,
we have no means of knowing!
neither does Mr. Carter's interview
furnish the data. A diplomat has

aine time steer the opposite party
caiefnlly around eveiy material
truth. Whether Mr. fatter has
come up to the standaid by his nigh
lull r hcoio oars of tutelage at
Washington, does not appear. But
under all the circumstances one can
not but think that he sucueeded in
steering the Advertiser interviewer
eleveily mound the main issue, viz. :
Is he, as a matter of lact, or has he,
since his advent, been promoting any
such a scheme? Will he come out
and give the. direct denial to this
plain question f If lie denies it,
then let him' answer this: Is ho, or
has he, sinoe Ids advont, been pro
moting, urging, speaking or wotk
ing in favor of a political protector
ate over this country by the United
States? There is at least a very
strong impression, on tho part of
those in a position to know, that
such is tho case. Whether this be
true is a matter of grave importance
to every citizen ; and if tine, then
we should know, further, whether
such is the sort of work this Gov
ernment pays Mr. Carter to perform
"in tltc interest" of the Kingdom
of Hawaii. Suppose we give the
Adveitiser intci viewer another
chance to explain some facts which
aie well known in this connection,
and which "in the rough," so to
speak, point strongly to the truth of
the Oiaio's information, if we only
substitute tho word "Protectorate"
for "Annexation." Inquiheii.
EiHTon Bfi.i.i.iiK: Your corres
pondent "Justice" had something
to say about the manner in which
juries are drawn in this kingdom,
and it was well said, excepting in so
far as the attempt was made to drag
into the matter that much abused,
mythical, "missionary" part'.
As the missionaries can take care
of themselves it is needless that I
should say anything '"more about
Iheni ; but about juries we may all
have something to saj The preg
sent Government first startled this
community to a sense of danger in
this direction in the "conspiiacy"
In the matter of trial of the riot
ers ot the :50th July last the Govern
ment has confessed its weakness by
setting aside its piosecuting olllcer,
who was so conducting the affairs of
his odlce as to lose the confidence
and respect of poisons competent
to serve ab jurors and engaged other
I am not in a position to say
whether your correspondent "Jus
tice" is right in what he charges as
"TheseiioiiFiicssof the whole mat
ter is recalled' by a leport which has
gained some publicity to the effect
that ceitain native Hawaiian known
as thick and thin adheruils to the
'Miasionaiy' parly have been call
ed into council by cerlain gentlemen
in 'high places,' and instructed to
'sound' and report upon the feel
ing and disposition of certaia other
native Ilawaiians, toward those
ag.unst whom criminal charges aie
pending for complicity in ilie events
of July ;l0lh, with a view to secure
a panel who are likely to convict.
If there is the least foundation in
fact for this, then it is time to take
down the motto 'Fiat justitia, mat
to'luin,' from the Supreme Couit
chamber, dissolve our Couits, and
let society return to chao3. Such
atrocity in the name of Justice
would be bo stupendous that ono
hesitates to ofler comment till the
truth be known."
Let me say, however, that tltc
manner in which the Government
piosecuted (?) Robertson for shoot
ing Magoney at Waialua marks the
possession of turpitude quite suffi
cient for fixing a jury. Aium,.
