TUESDAY, OCT. 22, 1889.
A llonomti coi respondent com
plains of the system followed It)
the steamers running to that part of
the coast. The Lehua with Hono
lulu freight en board hud passed ou
nnd liopti around Ililo wav for eidht
days, and he expected that all her The c,aU9e ' tucir platform propos
n..i.i..i.i.inii.iiiiii.H. niin,i ins the election of the Cabinet by
perishable freight would be ruined.
With regard to the letter of Mat
shal Soper, it is proper for us to say
that the letter of Mr. Mills to the
Marshal, referred to, was not with
held by us from any reluctance to
giving the writer a hearing. It was
withheld simply for his protection as
one of our correspondents, because
na hud published anonymous letters
on the same subject from another
correspondent. Another reason was
that the main question that of a
policeman being retained in olllce
after being convicted of crime ai
ntt touched upon in the letter.
The report of the first meeting of
the Mechanics' Union was published
as "cemiHUiiicated" with the con
sent of its anther, when he was in
formed that it could net appear
otherwise as written. Its taxed
price was also waived, the writer
admitting that a similar repoit had
been offered free to the Advertise?.
This showed false pretences in tax
ing the Bulletik, as the article was
marked "exclusive" to this paper.
The public can judge en which side
"bilking" was attempted. To us
the question arises as to whether
the Union approves of its hired
clerk using its name for purposes
unconnected with its object.
A MODUS VIVENDI.
Notwithstanding the apparent
confusion in Hawaiian politics, there
is really not reason why a common
understanding should not be leach
ed, between seemingly discordant
combinations, for the purpose of
procuring a good Legislature at the
approaching elections. The grounds
of this proposition may be found in
outline in the following party plat
forms, the first that of the Reform
convention of 1887, the second that
of a meeting under the auspices of
the Hawaiian Political Association
held a few months ago. It may be
said that a native Hawaiian (Mi.
Anahu) made the motion adopting
the Reform platform, which reads
1. That all unnecessary ollices in
the Government be abolished, and
that excessive salaries be curtailed.
2. That the principles of rigid
economy be applied to every depart
ment of the Government.
3. That provision be made for the
liquidation of the public debt.
4. That as soon as practicable the
Tate of taxation be reduced, and
that the revenue of the kingdom be
turned into channels of internal im
provement. 5. That the autonomy and inde
pendence of the kingdom be pie--erved.
It is true that the founder of the
Hawaiian Political Association re
fused to accept the pioceedings of
the meeting in question as belong
ing to that body. Still, the fact
remains that the meeting was called
in the name of the Association, and
it showed that it was against the
original platform, that which pro
posed making important offices un
der the Government elective. What
wo wish to point out, however, is
the similarity between the Reform
platform and that of the native
meeting in question. The lattei
reads as follows :
1. It shall be the purpose of this
Association to preset re moiiHichicil
institutions as they exist, and to
conserve the inteiests of all the
2. To reduce expenses of govern
ment and to abolish all useless offices
3. To reconsider those parts of
the Constitution which have an un
just bearing on certain classes of
4. To entourage the industry of
5. To. reduce the amount ofi,pro
perty qualification to voter for
C. To encourage all progressive
enterprises originating within or
coming into the kingdom.
7. That two-thirds of the Legis
lature shall have the power to elect
8. That the heads of the Govern
ment shall have the power to up
point the minor ofllccrs.
At the meeting that adopted this
plutform Mr. John E. Hush presid
ed ami Mr. Robert YV. Wilcox took
part iu the discussions. Tlieso
gentlemen soon nfterwnrd chose to
hrvnk iivvny fiom lliu peaceful line
of polities liidleaU"! ly the tiiinli'i.tto
mid lilii ml principles mrliucil n
tliuii platform with i u-ull thai
cxuiylmd d plurv-i. Yel th iiKir.il
uff et of a meeting entirely conduct'
ed by nntlvcs adopting such pro
gressive views cannot ho destroyed
hy the blunders or crimes that may
lime been committed later by their
leaders. That effect should be
found iu convincing catidid tniuds
that the native Hawailnns ate not
predisposed to reactionary politics.
nig the election ot the Uabinet by
two-thirds of the Legislature may
be considered a valuable contribu
tion to public questions, containing
asitdoe3ft teasonable remedy for
what is universally acknowledged
to be one of the weakest points in
our constitutional system.
Koi the rest the platfoim is ety
much like the Rcfoim one of 1887.
That only a reduction in Ihe piopcr
ty franchise for Nobles is proposed
9hows that the principle of a piop
erty franchise for that branch
is not antagonized. There is room
for a concession in thin respect frem
the victorious party of 1887. With
a popuUr platform formulated out
of the elements of the two given
above, supplemented with a clause
in which capital and labor may find
an amicable understanding, the
electoral contest would resolve it
self mainly into a choice of men for
A SMALL-SQULED WHINER.
EniTon Bulletin: In the Ga
zette of October 1.') appeals
another whine fioin one of those
smnll-souled writers, who signs him
self "Anti-Restriction." He says:
"I would like to heai more expres
sions of opinion from our planting
population, mcH who arc interested
throughout the country outside of a
few mechanics, storekeepers (and
perhaps a few lawyers who have not
briefs to occupy their time"). Keep
your seat and don't woiry, my little
whiner; those fow storekeepers, me
chanics and lawyers, witli their host
of friends, will thoioughly season
jour Chinese soup for you on Feb
ruary next, and teach ",ou a proper
appreciation of small storekeepers,
mechanics, etc. Go ahead with your
good work Messrs. Kinney, Lyons,
Kalua, and otheis, and bear in mind
the old adage that "where thcro is a
will there is a way," and you will
win in spite of all such parasitic
illustrations of the human family as
the late apoiings of "Teaser" and
"Anti-Restriction" have proved
themselves to be.
Editor Bulletin: At the time
that what some style the bloodluss
rebellion took place, many, you
might say the most of those that had
a real interest in the issues at stake
vveie and are living in other parts of
the Islands, and only thobc that
were sine sympathizers with them
were summoned to Honolulu. This
part-, arrogate great credit to them
selves from the fact of its being
bloodless and successful. We are
told that the successful part of it is
what made it light. There was
wrong to be lighted, we will con
cede, and so theie is to-day; but
two wrongs don't make one light
and we contend that a revolution
with the use of foicc, whether there
was bloodshed or not, t3 wrong iu a
country that has a free ballot box
to appeal to.
Those acquainted with the native
character and even casual observers
can't help noticing what a nation
they arc for imitation. This is a
great reason for their rapid advance
ment in civilized ways. We hao
noticed native preachers that would
lead, pray, exhort aud gesticulate
in 'almost the exact manner of their
teacher. The schemers that con
cocted the rebellion of 1887 (not
those that did the work) knew that
it would have to be imitated by the
natives, and we have seen in how
foolish a manner. Who, then, is
accountable for the bloodshed and
death on the :50th of July last? Not
the Minister, because thoy held a
Cabinet meeting and commissioned
one of their number to see those ic
bo Is and demand surrender before
giving battle. Not those on whom
duty devolved to keep peace and
order. Not those who handled the
guns, but we do say it was tho&e
who first hatched the egg from that
icptilo treason in the country, in a
country free from reptiles, for no
race ef people on tho face of the
globe is naturally moro law-abiding
than the native Hawaiian. But
don't use this fact against them.
They cannot go back and would not
if they could. No doubt they will
take the new constitution and do
the best they can with it, although
It deprives them of certain rights
and throws the Government strongly
into the hands of the capitalist,
which is a great injustice. You can
lead them to water, but don't at
tempt to mako them drink, or wo
will have a picnic that would hoist a
flag that many of us might not see
The members of the Honolulu
Rlllos we don't think would ever
lake up aims against the native if
thoy could help it. They are mew

selves mid wnuM unt upi old an u i-

We don't know who the framcrs
of om new constitution are. They
evidently did not have coinage to
sign their names to that precious
document. They aie not necessarily
the treason makers. This letter is
written especially for the treason
makers of 1887 in behalf of the
Hawaiian, and they will be in luck
if posteiity don't hit them worse.
THE HAMAKUA POLICE CASE.
Emtok IU'Llltw. A letter from
Mr. J. R. Mills appears in this
morning's P. C. A. concerning the
case of one Dan Lau Sing, formerly
n special policeman of Ilamakun,
Hawaii, who was summarily dismiss
ed the service by R. A. Lyman,
Depot, Sheriff, upon his conviction
ou the charge of having opium in
possession, for which he was fined
5150 and 21 hours' imprisonment at
hard labor. Some correspondent
from Honokaa charged, in a letter
to the Bulletin, that this Dan Lau
Sing had been employed in the
police service subsequent to this
conviction. Mr. Lyman wrote n
letter to'nic for publication, posi
tively denying the truth of this
chaige. I furnished a copy of the
letter to the Bullltin, omitting cer
tain names. About two weeks after
the publication of this letter Mr.
Mills wrote me a lengthy letter, de
voted to a general discussion of the
case and particularly of the char
acter of Dan Lau Sing from 1850
to the picscnt time, but not one
vrord relating to the charge against
Mr. Lyman, except that he, Mr.
Mill', had made no chaige against
Mr. Lyman. I ascertained that a
similar letter had been scut by Mr.
Mills to the Bulletin, nnd in your
issue of Oct. 12th it was noticed
editorially. I then wrote Mr. Mills
that, as his letter did not touch on
the only point of the case m which I
was interested, i. c., that Dan Lau
Sing had been employed, or allowed
by Air. Lyman to act as a police
man, after his conviction, I declined
to take part in the controversy.
