Considering that balloon ascou
sions and parachute descensions are

The assertion that the constitu
tional property qualification for
voters for Nobles gives the choice of
Nobles to the wealth, is false. Sup
pose we consider that a man who is
worth $10,000 is wealthy, what pro
portion of the qualified voters for
Nobles owns that amount? Certainly
not a majority by a long chalk.
"Where there is mystery there is
rascality," says a friend of mine. I
believe he is about light. Where
all is just, and honest, and straight,
it may also be open, and frank, and
aboveboard ; for in that case there
ij no occasion for concealment, pre
varication, or mystery. The diplo
macy that uses words to conceal in
tentions, the politics that are man
euvrcd with closed doors, and the
manipulation of public affairs that
is hidden, from public knowledge,
may all be suspected of being more
or less tinged with rascality.
Secrets are coming out. "Liber
al," who writes for the "Klele,"
has been revealing a little of the in
ternal workings of the combination
which brought about the upheaval
of June, 1S87. "Liberal" talks
like one who has been on the inside,
or else has got his information from
there. His revelations haven't a
tendency to inspire one with respect
for those rebellious spirits which
conspired to overthrow the govern
ment of the day. It appears that
those gentlemen intended going
farther than they did. One thing
that surprises mo is, that men who
plotted such unholy designs should
have the audacity to stigmatise "Wil
cox and his followers for having fee
bly attempted something of the
I have just heard of a country in
which the dog tax is, for the first
dog $5, the second dog $7.50, and
a considerable increase for every
additional dog, the object being,
not to raise a revenue, but to dimin
ish tho number of dogs. That is the
country for rao, and that is the kind
of taxation that meets with my
warmest approval. I liko dogs in
their placo, and dogs which perform
useful scrvico ; but hate thoso yelp
ing canines that do nothing but
keep decent people awake at night
lime, and would tax them out of
existence. My neighbor has a trifle
over a half dozen of these creatures,
one of which seems to be detailed
nightly to watch my bedroom win
dow, and as soon as the light is ex
tinguished the watchman signals
that fact by opening a solo, his com
panions joining in the chorus which
lasts until the break of day. Now,
I consider that an annual tax of $100
on each of those noisy nuisances
would be instillleicnt compensation
for the loss of sleep and the general
annoyance they subject mo to. I
intend to stipulate that no candidate
for the Legislature shall have my
vote until he solemnly pledges him
self to increase the dog lax at least
live bundled percent.
A HIDDEN ROCK,
Within the past few yean a sunk
en rock has been lcpotled by sev
eral vessels as a danger to naviga
tion off the coast of Japan. The
British schooner Rose found it on
July 11 last, by bumping on it so
hard as to knock the dishes off the
table, in lat. 0C dcg. 20 rain. N. and
long. 112 deg. E. by dead reckon
ing. Capt. Lee of the Canadian
Pacific Railway steamer Abyssinia
reported seeing the rock awash at
about two and a half miles distant,
but II. R. M.'s cruisers Linnet and
Swift searched for the rock without
success. Capt. Lee of tho Abys
sinia reported his discovery to the
Admiralty, but was snubbed for his
pains by the hydrographer from his
easy chair in London. This official
considered that the captain ought to
have "closed the object which he
saw, and thus verify his suspicions,
instead of adding to the number of
doubtful reports which aie a con
stant source of anxiety to the marin
er, and arc the occasion of the ex
penditure of much valuable time by
Her Majesty's surveying and other
ships in searches which could be
more usefully employed in making
surveys. Should a rock really ex
ist, the owners of the first ship lost
on it, and the relations of the
drowned, will have no reason to
thank the haste which grudged half
an hour in the verification of a fact
so important." A correspondent of
the Japan Gazette regards this as a
rather strong letter, and says the
"verification" would have been "the
work of several hours, and a pas
senger steamer, with many people
on board anxious "to got to their
journey's end, is a different matter
to a man-of-war with no mercantile
object in view (only when ordered
to make diligent search for any re
ported dangers)." The same writer
does not think the search by the
Linnet and Swift was canductcd
properly, and closes with a sugges
tion that "the Japanese Government
would do well to send a competent
officer with two vessels under his
command, and utilize the means that
had eventually to be brought into
operation, namely the sweep, to find
the Avocet rock in the Red Sea
which, until properly surveyed, was
the cause of disaster to many steam
ers." RESIGNATION OF PRINCIPAL
Honolulu, Nov. 21st.
Editou J1ui.u:tix: The accom
panying resolutions were recently
adopted by the Trustees of Oaliu
College, after having learned of
President Merritt's intention to close
his connection with that institution
at the expiration of the present
school year. I am directed by. the
Trustees to forward the same, with
the request that they may be insert

QUALIFICATION OF VOTERS FOR'
. . NOBLES.
itv a mechanic
In the United States the legisla
tive power is vested in a Congress
consisting of a senate and House of
Representatives. Tho Senate con
sists of two members from each
Stato chosen by the Slate Legisla
tures for six years.
The House of Representatives is
composed of members elected evory
second year by the vote of all male
citizens over 21 years of age. From
a close comparison of the laws and
regulations which govern the exer
cise of the franchise in the United
States and in this country, it will be
seen that we ai e far less conserva
tive than our American cousins in
admitting -foreigners to an equal
vote and voice in government affniis.
For example, in the United States a
foreigner in order to be entitled to
vote must go bcfoie a judge and,
with the aid of two citizens who be
come sponsors for him, declare his
intention to become a citizen, for
swear the nationality of his fathers,
and wait years for his new privilege
to mature before he can voto for a
representative. He must reside at
least over one year in the State in
which he votes (Michigan and Maine
only three months) ; or in the State
of Rhode Island he must have pro
perty to the value of $131, he must
not be under 21 years of age, and
in most of the States he must be
able to read and wiite English.
We arc not nearly so exacting, as
will be seen by Sec. 25 of Chapter
7G of the laws of last session, which
says: "Every male resident of the
Kingdom, of Hawaiian, American or
European birth or descent
who shall have paid his taxes, taken
an oath to support the Constitution,
be twenty years of age, resided one
year in the Kingdom, and have a
knowledge of Hawaiian or any Euro
pean language, Bhall be eligible to
Americans heic who advocate ihe
abolition of our property or wages
test qualification for voters for the
upper chamber, do not carefully
consider that our surronndings are
very different to what we have in the
States. Ameiican repugnance to
anything that savois of a wages test
or mere money test is natural, and
one may ask is the kanaka to have a
say in the higher affairs of State
merely because he has $3,000 worth
of taro patches, whilst I, who was
schooled on the hub of the universe
and can wrestle with anything fiom
the differential calculus to political
economy, am to be excluded be
cause I am only getting $10 a month
as lima on u hungry plantation.
Such oases exist, and proe that
iberc is no eternal fitness of things
in politics, .any more than there is
in an educated man being at work
at &-10 a month.
The United States Senate is not
elected upon any basis of property
qualification, it is true, but the
selection of the Senators, by being
left to the State legislatures is far
removed from the popular control
and paity bossism, facts which will
be seen by a comparison of the cali
bre of the State legislators them
selves, and the men whom they
select for the Senate of the nation.
