THE MEN WE WAHT.
The time of the biennial elections is
approaching. The first Wednesday
of February is the day specified by
law for the choosing of the members
for the Legislature of the kingdom,
to hold the lawmaking power for
two years. The elections must
necessarily be preceded by nomina
tions, and already organizations
have been, and are being, formed,
and candidates discussed. It is
well if electors are thoroughly im
bued with the Importance of putting
forward and supporting the best
men available. Personal sympa
thies and absurd prejudices are too
apt to exert a pernicious inlluence
utliucli times. For tho"good of all,
it is to be hoped that common sense,
reason, and sound judgment will
Measures are what make or break
a country, and men are the authors
of measures. Measures are wanted,
and so are men men of measures.
Measures without men are as useless
as men without measures. How
can we get the measures we need
without the men to ma"l:e them? And
what reason is there in expecting
needed measures from men incom
petent for the task? Just as reason
able to expect rhetoric from a cow,
or to engage a fish to give, lemons
in the art of walking.
It is of prime and fundamental
iinpoitanue in a country of mixed
population and diversified interests,
like this, that laws should be con
structed and the Government con
ducted on a broad and liberal basis ;
and none but liberal-minded men
are competent for the' undertaking.
Therefore, first and foremost, tho
men selected for the Legislature
should bo men who recognize that
every individual and every class of
the community is as much entitled
to consideration, in the regulation
of public affairs, as every other indi
vidual and every other class, and
That every legitimate interest, how
ever small, has a right to existence
and protection. The man who cries,
"Down with the natives, the. for
eigner must rule!" or the man who
explains, "Down with the foreigner,
the native tinuat rule!" is not the
propor man for the Legislature.
Haole-haters and kanaka - haters,
missionaries and anti-missionaries,
should be asked to take a back seat.
Narrow and selfish minds can no
more formulate, father, or favor
measures that arc large, and liberal
than a mouse can generate an ele
phant. Men who sincerely believe
in equal rights for all, are the only
m'n who can bi' safol' trusted to
fiiact "equal laws for the whole,
There are jitUUi. weighty propo
sitions that were made prominent at
the last clectiou which need reviv
ing, re-alllrming, and le-adopting at
the coiriinff elr-ciion. Particular
reference is intended to "Independ
ence of the country" and "economy
in the disbursementof its revenues."
Itocent events furnish tho reason for
insisting upon the first of these, and
dim hhadowa preceding, coming
events indicate the importance of
emphasizing the second.
Hawaii is .competent to manage
her own attnjrv-is fully capable of
self-goverrimoiit is juat as ablo to
do her own business asany other
country is to! do it for her, and a
triiie abler. Theieforo, ihe occa
sion has not yet arisen for seeking oi
desiring annexation, a protectorate,
or anything else that cannot consist
with "porfpeti independence." -Neither
does Hawaii seek or desire
anything of the kind, although it
cannot be denied that bomo of her
ultUens have a feeling that way, a
feeling inspired by Hellish considera
tions which overbalance their weak
patriotism. These arc not the men
to bend to the legislature. Uy nil
means keep them out, until the
country expresses a wish to We, link
ed on to somo other country. Then
give them a chance.
Economy in disbursing the public
fiuuls isamatlcrof which every mem
ber should have a correct under
standing, as well as a deter
mined will to enforce. Men" are apt
to be more careless and extravagant
In tho expenditure of public moneyB
than in lcgard to their own private
purses. That part of the disburse
ment of the reyenues which devolves
upon the legislative body consists in
the enactment" of tho appropriation
law. A correct understanding of
what is meant by economy in tho
ubc of tho public funds implies a
clear perception In regard to the
proper objects of its expenditure,
and an intelligent discrimination
between economy and parsimony.
It will be surprising indeed if tho
legislature to be elected In February
next does not experience a repeti
tion of history in being beoieged
with requests to make appropria
tions for mere private benefit or
purely ptlvate purposes, for objects
of doubtful public utility, for the
encouragement of enterprises calcu
lated to benefit tho country, but not
In proportion to the amounts desir
ed, etc. Here is where the practice
of economy will be nepded, in the
refusal to vote the people's money
for other than the people's evident
benefit, as well as by declining to
vote salaries for useless officers,
while at the same time discouraging
that parsimony which would under
pay the hard-working employee for
his services and send to .Son Fran
cisco, for 'the sake of saving five
cents, for what can be furnished of
equally good quality by taxpayers
here. Who are the men to uphold
this measure? Surely not those who
are not in sympathy with it, nor
those who have "axes to grind" or
covetous eyes on tho treasury for
themselves and friends.
Thero are also new measures
which the condition and require
ments of the countr' call for, some
of which have been publicly dis
cussed and others that have had but
little attention. Restriction or regu
lation of Asiatic immigration may
be noted as occupying a foremost
place. This will be found to be an
extremely difficult matter to deal
with in a way that 9hall protect the
working man and mechanic, preserve
the interests of the people and the
industries of the country from in
jury, and do no injustice to anyone.
Men w ith courage to face the diffi
culty and tackle tho- problem are
wanted for legislators. No sensible
man for one moment imagines that
this nnd other questions will or can
be honestly and satisfacterily han
dled L3' men whoso minds aie not,
in the first place, fully in .-mpathy
with them and deeply impressed by
Nor is this enough. Honesty and
earnestness may be allied with ignor
ance and stupidity. Knowledge
and ability must be added to the
qualifications already named. A,
man Jo be fit to legislate for the
people must possess a knowledge of
their requirements, and the capacity
to legislate sensibly, justly, and dis
creetly. He must, although not
necessarily a talker, hi a thinker, a
rcasoner, always voting on the side
of 'sense, right, justice, and libertj.
Now, if the people want sound,
just, and beneficial measures, let
them in their political organizations
nominate, and at the polls vote for,
only those men whom they have
good reason to believe arc willing
and able to produce such measures.
To select dishonest men, and expect
them to be true to their trust, is
about on a par with perching Beelze
bub in a pulpit to preach a Christ
mas sermon. And to select num
skulls, however honest, to perform
duties which require the exercise of
brains aud ability, is equal to cm
ploying a uuvvy, who has handled
nothing but u pickaxe and shovel all
his life time, to repair the delicate
mechanism of a lady's watch.
Muddle is sure to be the result in
either case. AVe cannot get the
legislative measures we need unless
we flrit got the men. If we are
wise we will do our best to select
and elect the men, and If wo can
not get men of the calibre wo would,
we should choose the best we can.
