WEDNESDAY, OCT. 23, 1889.
The electors for Nobles on tlie
Island of Hawaii have a representa
tive committee appointed to prepare
for & general convention. They
want a platform and for this they
may be referred to the two plat
forms published in the Bulletin.
The Liberal candidate was elected
at Peterboro, England, on Oct. 7,
wresting the seat from the Union
ists. As two other elections were
to follow within the week, tbis. re
sult was considered verj inoppor
tune for the Government. It set
the Standard te discussing the con
tingency of a Liberal majcrily in
the general elections.
The Australia ballot syatera was
tested for the first time in Tennes
see at the- municipal election in the
city of Chattanooga on Oct. 8. A
despatch thence says "it was the
quietest election ever known in this
city, and there was less illegal vot
ing than in any previous election."
The Republicans elected the mayor
and ten out of sixteen on the ticket.
THE STATE TRIALS.
Some of our correspondents are
very severe.on the Government for
prosecuting the prisoners of July
30. It is not, however, for the fact
of the prosecutions that we should
find fault with the Government.
The insurrectionists were overpower
ed by the forces of the law and
public opinion being heated against
them at first for their disturbance of
the community's tranquillity there
was no demand heard to influence
the Government in behalf of a gen
eral amnesty. Piebably, if the
Government had let all the prison
eors off as being only victims of a
lost cause, and aurviving losers of a
battle in which sufficient blood was
shed to atone for a good deal of
crime, there would have been politi
cians in abundance to impute the
clemency of the Ministers to coward
ice. Where the Government seems
amenable to blame ia.iather in the
methods adopted in the pitsecu
tions, chiefly and'for instanca in the
shuffling' of the usual order of pro
ceedings, evidently, to secure convic
tions. There was no necessity for
this course. A straightforward pro
secution according to the 3et prac
tice of the Court Hawaiian jury
cases all first, and priority to the
(alleged) chief offendeis in trials
would have purged the Government
of all responsibility to- the Crown
and country, no matter what the
verdicts of the juries might have
been. With a complete and sincere
presentation "of the Crown cases,
the Government would haye done
Us duty. If no Hawaiian jury could
be found to give a verdict carrying
the death penalty against a suppos
ed compatriot, the result, even if a
failure of justice, might not be an
unmixed, evil in promoting the
amendment f our barbarous law of
treason barbarous in admitting no
degree of guilt and no milder op
tion, under circumstances the most
extenuating, than the awful sen
tence of death. The steps taken
cannot be retraced, but we are lib-eral-minded'enough
tc assume that
the Government, in changing the
charge of treason against "WUcos to
the lesser.one of conspiray, is act
ing only under the impulse of a
more conciliatory feeling in the
community than existed immediate
ly after the insurrection, arid meant
no injustice to the foieigner tried
out of the usual order and convict
ed of the capital offense although,
as has been proved in the' trials,
less implicate'd in the uprising than
many charged with the minor of
fenses or released to give state's evidence.

Inquiro nhy smir'tbhi ft this si r
wus not done br tinst the mauipula-
tors and participants in the re vol u
tionnry conspiracy of December and
Januaiy, '87-8, designed todoawn
with King and Ministers, but which
was discovered in the nick of time
to prevent Its consummation? As
is generally known, the leaders in
the former conspiracy made eoufes
aion3 (after discovery) to certain of
II. M. Ministers, which confessions
implicated a number of olllce-hold-ing
pets of Ministers themselves:
therefore the administration of jus
tice was prostituted to protect these
friends, thereby offering a premium
to allcomers to commence and oper
ate another revolulionar' conspiracy
at pleasure. It would seem from
the present attitude of Ministers to
ward those now accused that the
particular friends of said Ministers
have managed to keep clear of the
latest conspiracy, or to successfully
cover their tracks. But why this
favoritism? Do the Hawaiian people
pay -four men $20,000 a year and
perquisites to compromise felony
and throw official rewards to known
felons because thoy are political
favorites' If the Reform bosses
cannot answer this question satisfac

STATISTICS OF THE ADVERTISER.
Editor Bulletin This morn
ing's Advertiser contains a statistical
table relative to the ownership of
Hawaiian plantations coupled with
an editorial which states among other
things that the table in question was
prepared "chiefly to disprove the as
sertion made by Sir. Kinney, that
the planting interest on these isl
ands is controlled by those who were
not Americano by an overwhelming
If the editor of the Advertiser will
look up back files of his own paper
he will find I made no such asser
tion as he attributes to'me and that
this is the second time in. print that
I have called his attention to it.
What the editor of the Advertiser
proves by his statistics is that native
born and naturalized Americans and
their descendants own far more
plantation property here at the isl
ands than all other nationalities com
bined, which I understand is the
case, and which I have never seen
disputed in the public press ; but to
lefute the assertion that I made, it
will be necessary for the editor of tho
Advertiser to go further and state,
let, hew many own the entire
planting interests of the country;
2d, how manyit will take to repre
sent a controlling interest in each
plantation, and, 3d, the nationality
of those who hold this controlling
The Advertiser unquestionably has
access to statistics that outsiders do
not and many probably will therefore
await with interest the statistics it
can furnish on the points mentioned
above. If it remains silent, it cer
tainly has no right to say that it has
refuted the assertion that I made.

THE REWARD OF GOODNESS.
"I cannot base morality upon the
dread of some future punishments,
upon the expectation of some future
rewards. I believe the attempts to
make men moral by such means
have always failed, are failing now
more egregiousiy ana monstrously
than ever." F. D. Maurice in Les
sons of Hope.
Editoh Bulletin: Mr- Beckwith
in his last Sunday evening's sermon,
after pitching into the agnostics and
the unsatisfactory nature of their
position somewhat freely, said, in
effect, that if the agnostic position,
that there is no evidence of im
morality and that if there is a God
he is unknowable, is sound, then
those who live lives of virtue and
self sacrifice are fools,and,tbat those
live in vain who die for country or
pass their lives in toil that the world
may be better and that poverty may
be diminished and labor better paid ;
and the reason given for this extra
ordinary conclusion was simply that
these people were fools and throw
ing away their lives because they
were working without pay and di
Much as I admire the agnostics
for their fidelity to truth and their
own consciences, and their devotion
to the work of Investigation, I do
not fully agree with their applica
tion pf the scientific test to questions
generally classed -as supernatural
but which I prefer to call spiritual.
But In all their errors combined
there Is nothing that compares with
the above conclusion for infidelity to
all moral principle. Surely there
are many who have never bowed the
knee to the bread and butter or th
hoopillmeaai view of religion, but
who believe that a pure and unsel
fish life is its own sufficient recom
pense every day and every hour;
and who, even If they should doubt
immortality and lose sight of God,
would not for that reason for a mo
ment consider that the principles of
righteousness were changed or modi
fled, or its sanctious dissolved, nor
would they desire such a conclusion.
God or no God, a chaste life with
however much of sorrow and toil it
may be burdened Is infinitely better
than the life of a wanton with all of
pleasure and luxury that such a life
can possibly mean ; immortality or
no immortality, the patriot who dies
for his country and the man who

THE WILCOX CASE.
When the Com t opened this after
noon the cross-examination of Gus
tuve Schuman the Rifleman,
commenced. On refeicnco to our
report of the morning's proceed
ing's it will be seen that one of the
jurors asked him some pretty plain
questions which he nnsweicd.
This afternoon the sanio juror,
Ihpikano by name, asked Sehumun
whether his enemies were on the in
side or the outside of the palace
Another remark addicsscd to
Schuman by Bipikano was: I think
that this niiin used his gun in a
tliientuning manner towards people
and that ia the rcftson why they
caught him anil thicw him over the
Mr. Hatch for the Crown said : If
your honor please we feel called up
on at this stage in consequence of
what has been taw by this juror to
move your honor to discharge this
jury on the ground of bias, etc.
His Honor the Chief Justice said
ho would give his opinion after due
deliberation. If there was no pie
cedent he would make one. Judges
have to make precedents sometimes.
When a juror by his manner and
gesture shows bias it has an effect
upon the other jurors, and it is mis
conduct of the grossest kind. Ho
thought the Court could find pre
cedents from other cases but that
made no difference to him. He was
aware that it required only nine jur
ors to obtain a verdict, but he could
not look into what effect the ac
tion of this juror would have on
the others. Tho defendant him
self no doubt wished to have a
fair trial and to be acquitted on tho
law and evidence. To proceed with
6uch an exhibition of feeling on tho
part of juior would be a mockery
of justice. He would discharge the
jury now from further consideration
of the case.
The Attorney-General thought tho
attitude of tho juror placed him
in contempt of the court and it ought
so to go on recoid.
The jury were discharged at 2:15

Latest New York advices are to
the effect that the dqmand for raws
was nominal; refined steady with
sales for immediate wants. The
trade was holding back orders until
Spreckels' refinery had opened at
Philadelphia in the hope of making
better terms. Eastern advices and
despatches to San Francisco show
that the feeling in the trade ia to
stand by Spreckeb in his fight with
the Trust. His business principle,
''live and let live," commends itself
to the trading instincts of the East,
