MONDAY, SEPT. 23, 1889.
The San Francisco mail contract
was pending in the New Zealand
Legislature when the Alameda left
Auckland. Very strong arguments
were presented in a Herald leader
for the continuance of the service,
which, strange to say, meets with
opposition although it nets a clear
and handsome profit to the colony.
The Herald thinks the difliculty of
perpetuating the service would be
much reduced if the United States
showed less indifference to it.
The Elele does the Bui.lv.tin the
honor of desiring our views ou the
franchise question. From our point
of view the question is a little com
plicated. We believe in a property
franchise of some kind for the
House of Nobles, if that branch of
our united Legislative Assembly is
to continue. Otherwise, there is no
sense in the distinction between
Nobles and Representatives. There
is no inherent injustice, so far as we
can see, in a property franchise
that is within comparatively easy
reach of all men. Perhaps the No
bles franchise is too high by one
half; if so we should support a
measure reducing it by that degree.
If a man has property or income en
abling him to keep out of tho ranks of
loafers or dependents upon others'
bounty, the object of si property
lranchise in his case ought to be am
ply fulfilled, and we do think the
franchise for Nobles is excessive
according to such a criterion. And,
in estimating iucome, wc should
agree with a proposition making the
value of products raised or acquired,
.such as those of the field or fisheries,
count in the qualification of voters.
What complicates the question with
us, however, is the motive that
originally dictated the insertion of
the property franchise in our Con
stitution. There is no question that
the provision was intended to give
foreign voters an advantage over the
natives in electing the House of
Nobles. Therefore, it was class legis
lation in that classes were in view
"a its adoption, hence it is incon
sistent theoretically with another
article of the Constitution. If the
provision had been regularly legis
lated by a parliament or even a con
ference where the native population
was fully represented, there could
be no objection to the property fran
chise except such as might be raised
in fair and square discussion of the
issues between a property fran
chise and universal suffrage. There
may be rank injustice in the manner
of bringing about a measure that in
itself is perfectly defensible. We
do not believe tjiat the end justifies
the means except perhaps in rare
cases of life and death. Our view
of the Nobles franchise, then, is
that it is probably excessive in de
gree while having much to be urged
in its favor, in point of kind, as to
practical politics. Al the same
time, if the natives as a general
thing regard themselves as being
unjustly treated in this and other
provisions of the Constitution, it
would be right and proper to liavo
steps taken for a thorough revision
of the Constitution by a body repre
sentative of the whole people. The
Bui.m-.tik is willing to suppoit a
policy of treaty revision by calm
tnd deliberate process; but it is
very averse to either slashiug or
tinkering the fundamental law under
the selfish and violent impulses of
ii n election. Our advocacy of a
Cliluese amendment does nor, how-
J-- " -
ever, come into self-condemnation
from this position. Tills proposal is
for an addition to the document, to
meet a situation that was overlooked
by the framcrs of the Constitution
of 1887. It may therefore be ap
priatcly considered at any juncture.
It may be asked why, if we admit
that the property franchise was dic
tated by n motive not above suspi
cion, we arc not prepared to join
in nn electoral campaign for its
summary abolition. The answer is
that two wrongs do not make a
right- If the measure as it stands
was born of an extreme distrust of
the natives amounting to prejudice,
yet its actual wrong we believe to bo
more in degree than m principle.
Tho House of Nobles 13 an "upper
house" in uori ways than one, and,
if its functions are to continue, its
basis should not be hastily swept
away. Let not prejudice of a con
trary extreme to that assumed above
carry sensible people away like a

THE PROPERTY FRANCHISE.
Eihtoii Bulletin : S. E. Bishop,
in his thick and thin epistle in the
Bulletin of Sept. 11, says, "I be
lieve myself to be earnestly solicit
ous that all men should enjoy their
just rights, and especially that the
aboriginal Hawaiian should possess
his just share in the government of
the land of his fathers." I'cla
puha! But first and foremost, be
fore the natives or any other fair
minded class of men will take any
stock in the above, he will have to
come out fairly and squarely tor an
equal franchise for the poor and
ignorant as he calls them, with the
Again he says, "Nemo probably
deems it a great injustice to give
the haoles an equal chance with the
natives in the control of the Govern
ment." Wrong again, he should
have reversed it and said that Nemo
deems it a great injustice to the na
tives by not giving them an equal
chance with the wiiites in the con
trol of the government of their own
country ; then he would have hit the
truth fair and square.
It is safe to say that there arc
one thousand natives to fifty whites
who cannot vote for Nobles from the
great sin of being a trifle poorer
than their neighbors. And then
Sir. Bishop has the gall to say that
the natives have full possession of
all the rights they are entitled to.
If that is his religious creed, he is
welcome to it ; 1 want none of it in
But when 1 ponder over his un
christian acts to the nativen (when
he ought to be their friend), there
steals over me a feeling of pity for
the man as I think of the time when
he shall pass in his checks, he will
be overborne with leuiorse, and die
hard and lonely because of his
heartless ingratitude towards "these
too kindly, too fiiendly, too truth
ful, too magnanimous Hawaiian peo
ple," to use his own words as ap
peared in the Bulletin some few
months ago. It seems strange to
me how a person can wiite that
splendid tribute to the natives, and
then not have the manhood to stand
up for the just rights of a "mag
nanimous" people. Mr. Bishop may
wriggle, squirm, and try to twist the
rights of the natives out of shape ;
they will still stand there, staring
him in the face as selfishness and
gieed, against justice and principle.
Just previous to the departure of
the Alameda Mr. I. Q. Tewksbury,
who was leaving for the Coast, was
presented with a gold-headed cane.
The cane is a memento in a double
sense, being a piece of the warship
Trenton. The gold head is of the
most aitistiu workmanship. Mr.
Turrill, Port Surveyor, did the hon
ors and on handing the cane over
said that while these occasions were
generally used for spouting, he in
tended to break the record and pre
serve that silence which is represent
edby tlie cane head, golden, us he
knew that Mr. Tewksbury fully ap
preciated the sentiments of friend
ship which called forth the caning
he was now receiving. After giving
Mr, Tewksbury the cano he handed
him a draft for 8300 on San Krun
cisco as an expression of the friend
ship of the merchants of Honolulu,
and stated that the beauty of tho
offeiing was that the amount was
subscribed entirely by business
houses who hud had transactions
with Mr. Tewksbury. Mr. Tewks
buiy in reply said that he would
never forget the present moment,
and thanked his friends for their in
terest in liis welfare, and only hop
ed that it would be with them as
with himself, although gone not forgotten.
His Majesty Receives tho Retiring and
tho Incoming Minister Resident
of the United States,
Cordial Expressions of International
At noon to-day His Majesty the
King held a reception nt Iolani
Palace. His Ex. Jonn. Austin, Min
ister of Foreign Affairs, presented
His Excellency Geo. W. Merrill,
United States Minister Resident, who
addressed the King ns follows ;
Ma it Please Yoim Majestv:
As my olllcial relations as Minis
ter Resident of the United States,
with Your Majesty's Government,
are about to cease, i am cimrgcii
with the pleasant duty of conveying
to Your Majesty the assurances of a
sincere desire on the part of the
President to strengthen the kindly
fccling,now happily existing between
the kingdom of Hawaii and the Re
public of the United States.
Permit me to observe that while
this sentiment has often been staled,
I confidently predict that, in the
future, whatever may be the vicis
situdes of political parties, the
United States Government, guided
by the voice of the people, will never
bo false to these sincere expressions
of the past.
I feel an abiding conviction that 1
but echo the sentiments of the peo
ple of the United States, as well as
those whom they have chosen to ex
ecute them will, when I express the
hope that Your Majesty, and the
people of this kingdom of the Paci
fic, may ever be the recipients of
copious" blessings, and that the hand
maiden's peace and prosperity will
forever gladden Your hearts, and
that patriotic devotion to its interests
shall become so intensified and so
clearly interwoven with every senti
ment of the people that Hawaii shall
ever be a fixed star in the constella
tion of independent states.
Although mj wish may inspire the
thought yet I trust my prophecy is
not false, as 1 predict the time is
not far distant when the lightnings,
controlled br modern genius, shall
annihilate space and, beneath the
sea, in the flash of an eye, the na
tions of the world shall extend You
and Your people hearty greetings of
"God bless You and Your native
To these assurances of national
goodwill permit me to add an ex
pression of my personal regard and
'kindly feeling for Hawaii and its
people and to assure lour Majesty
of mj' high appreciation of Your
many acts of gracious kindness and
the many courtesies of Your Ma
jesty's Ministers and other high
officials of state which have contri
buted so much to render my sojourn
here a chapter in life history, which,
while homeward bound and in after
years will often be reviewed with
most pleasing memories.
Confident in advance that my re
quest will bo cordially granted I re
spectfully ask for my successor the
same kindly feeling which has ren
dered so pleasant my oflicial and so
cial duties near Your Majesty's
His Majesty replied as follows :
Mn. Meuuili. :
It is with regret that I
take leave of a gentleman with
whom 1 have enjoyed such pleasant
The honorable and courteous
manner in which you have represent
ed the interests of your great coun
try at My Court has confirmed and
cemented the good understanding
which exists between our respective
states, and has inspired my people
with a more profound appreciation
of the goodwill and friendship so
long shown by your Government.
My best wishes and those of Her
Majesty and the Royal Family go
with you and Mrs. Merrill on your
return to your native country, and I
pray that success and happiness
ma3' attend you through life.
His Ex. Mr. Merrill then intro
duced to His Majesty, his succes
sor, Hon. John L. Stevens, who ad
dressed the King as follows :
In presenting to your Majesty
my letter of credence you will
allow me to say that it is with an
experience of pleasure that I am
am permitted to be the medium of
communicating to you the good
wishes of the President of the Unit
ed States and of the sixty-live mil
lions of people whom he ably and
faithfully represents. It is in the
spirit of international fraternity,
which has greatly increased in force
and elevation in recent times, that
I am sent as the American agent to
your Majesty's Government and to
reside among the people of these
beautiful islands, a cluster of goms
in the Pacific Sea. It is proper for
me to say, what your Majesty and
Government well understand, that
the government and people of the
United Slates cherish a dcop inter
est in the prosperity and welfare of
the Hawaiian Islands, so smiled
upon by nature and so important to
the future commerce and civilization
of the countries contiguous to the
Pacific. Your autonomy secured
by the goodwill of great nations, nil

of other lauds must wish that your
government may be successful in
securing order, prosperity, and hap

separated by two thousand miles of
ocean, the United Stales and the
Hawaiian kingdom make a part of
that new world, whose reciprocal in
terests of commerce tend to unity
and to all that is liberal in policy

If my residence among yon shall in
any way conduce to these pacific
and desirable ends, it will be my
good fortune lo faithfully represent
the wishes of the people and Gov
ernment of the great American na
tion. The King replied to Mr. Stevens
It is with pleastirethat I re
ceive from you the assurance
of the continuance of the friend
ly regard of the President and
the people of the American nation
for the Sovereign and people of Ha
waii. And I am well pleased to welcome

great and good friend President
Harrison as the Representative of
the American Government anil peo
ple. The officers of My Government
will be instructed to tender to you
every attention and eourlosy during

Ex. Jona. Austin, Minister of For
eign Affairs; Mr. James W. Robert
son, II. M.'s Acting Chamberlain;
