SATURDAY, DEC. 7, 1P8!.
A 'PARTY SHEET DISTRESSED.
'Che F.lele is much concerned be
cause the Hut it. us lias opposed
orao of the main principles of the
combination platform of the Me
chanics' Union arid the Hawaiian
Political Association. It generally
isva mystery to a party newspaper,
for an independent paper to refuse
to trim its bails to what may he the
popular breeze. The Bri.tr.Tix in
riticising the .Mechanic Union
nUtform (which is remarkable, bv
tUe way, for its omission of almost
everything concerning the peculiar
Interests of mechanics) simply re
peated the views that itstiongly
1 enunciated long before either the
Union or its platform was in exist
ence. This is not an "attack" as
the Elelc calls it. It is simply :i
irefus&l to surrender mature convic
tions to please an organization that,
-for the sake of illustration, we ad
. uiit controls "tfie balance of power."
Sly Unllleo II
'Scrutator" thinks that "as the
political caldron is now on the boil
for next general election, a. good
deal of froth may be expected to
rise to the surface." No doubt
about it ; and along with the froth,
a good deal of scum. In the kitchen
a cook Loons what disposition to
make of this stuff he casts it into
the sink. "Free and independent
electors" are not always so wise,
but sometimes foolishly preserve the
rubbish, while all that is good and
wholesome sinks out of sight, and
afterwards complain that the tlavor
is excessively nasty.
Honest3' is a good tiling. We all
admire it, whether we possess it or
not. But it is a scarce article in
this age of duplicity and btrife for
riches. Honest men are good, and
they are wanted for all public posi
tions members, ministers, and offi
cials. But honesty aud honest men,
without any other recommendation,
fail to All the bill. Something more
is essential some intellectual ca
pacity. As a member, a clever
logue is, perhaps, preferable to an
, honest fool ; for while the latter is
as useless as a buinp on a log, the
former may do good for his cnnsUi
luency and country.
The firemen's elections were quiet
' and good natured modcratel r so.
Why shouldn't they be? The con
testants were all brother firemen,
;and it is unbeemh for brethren to
quarrel while ascertaining who are
preferred by a majority of their
number for officers. When the con
test was over and the result declar
ed, the defeated side peacefully
submitted. Bight again ; for it is
agreed by all that the majority shall
rule. But subsequently theie conies
a protest against the declared result,
on the ground of some alleged irre
gularity, or illegality, or something
of that sort, ia the election. Well,
the only fair thing, aud no fair
minded fireman will object, is to ex-
s amine impartially the complaint,
and act justly on the finding.
There is prospect apparently of
the Workingrnen's Union and Dan
Lyous'a political association joining
hands in the coming elections, and
putting up one J icket for. the two.
About the best thing they could do.
lu union there is strength. 1 am a
little inquisitive to know what they
, will call their ticket. The "peo
ple's ticket," or the "independent
ticket," sounds pretty well. What's
in a name? A great deal sometimes.
"Ucform" was a taking word two
years ago. It is not so popular to
day. The essence of reform is no
less liked or desired now than then,
fli't the word has been put to so
tuanv . .-r verted uses that it has
acquired i, disagreeable odor to the
noses of nany deceut people. The
wo? '1 ba lost its charm: it repels.

. "Peter," who makes iome ery
rational "observations on loyalty,"
believes that "the hardest task
masters are always those who have
never done, and do not rcali.o what
a day's work is." 1 cannot say that
my small experience of the world
and the people in it leads me to the
Name belief. It Is bometimes the
case that men who bar never done
a day's work are very hard task
tnastors, and sometimes ngain you
find men of that class who nro the
easiest and gentlest of master;.
Then I have known men who enrly
in life, nnd for many years follow
ing, labored hard and long hours,
earning a dry crus.t nnd a very little
poor cheese by the sweat of their
brow, and ultimately, through per-
seeriug effort, economy, a streak
of luck, stock gambling, robbery,
or something ele,acciltnulated wealth
and became masters of men and a?
mast cis were hard, exacting, aud
tyrannical. Sad to say, this class
is too often the bitterest opponent
of striving manhood. He who has
known the day of tiouble, the hour
of want, the time of fatigue, hun
ger, and anxiety, is sometimes the
first to forget his own sufferinjj'j in
days gone by, and ti ample upon the
most forlorn of all God's creatures.
It is not necessary to go nut of the
country for illustrations.
It is too late in the day too late
in the history of these islands to
talk of relegating the native Hawai
ian to the relative position of the
American Indian; and it is al90 too
lato to proclaim the doctrine, that
the foreigner domiciled and inter
ested in the.country should have no
voice in its government. The Ha
waiian has had sixty or eighty years
of civilized teaching, and haB made
leranrkable progress. His average
intelligence is equal to that of the
majority of most cmlizcd nations,
aud ahead of many. He is too far
advanced in civilized ways and mo
dern ideas to be relegated to the re
lative position of the American In
dian. But left to himself, he can
not govern equal to the most ad
vanced nations. The foreigner has
too big an inteiest in the country
and has hithetto had too big a say
in its management to be ignored
now. It cannot he done. The time
is long past for attempting anything
of the kind. It is not the sensible
native who talks of excluding the
foreigner from a pai t in the govern
ment, neither is it the right-minded
foreigner who would debar the na
tive from a voice in the management
of his own national affairs. The
sensible and just of each race recog
nize that their interests are mutu
ally interwoven, and would patrio
tically unite to govern for the reci
procal good of both.
"Don't kick a man when he is
down." That is the sentiment of
every brave man, and is said to be
the sentiment especially of the
Anglo-Saxon race. Unless there is
some exaggeration about the boast,
the representatives of that race
must deteriorate very sadly when
they reach the tropics. "Liberal"
relates, in the Eleie, how some of
these gentlemen wanted to know at
the Police Station, when Wilcox wa9
taken a prisoner, why he was
brought there alive, meaning, as I
undeistand it, thai, he should have
been shot when he surrendered ;
and it is a fact of unquestioned his
tory thai Anglo-Saxon voices wrrw
heard shouting in the streets,
"Swing him up"--tuat is, swing up
the surrendered and oonquoied
leader of the insurrection. Coward
ly cms! When a misguided man
was down they would kick him, kill
him, shamefully butcher him. Those
men Americans or Englishmen
should at once fot swear their coun
try, if they have not done so al
ready, foi their country has great,
cause to be very much ashamed of
them. This is only one instance
of the disposition of the Anglo
Saxon in Hawaii to" kick n man when
ho is so unfortunate as to be down.
Othets coufd be cited equally well
known. In tact, the town seems to
be infested with a lot of mean,
mcash, cowardly bipeds who are
always on the watch, and as soon as
a poor fellow fitumblcB on to his
noae, they jump upon him and kick
him, metaphorically, with all the
vigor and venom of a savage and vin
dictive nature. Cowardly wretches 1
"Justice," who had a short but
pointed letter in the Dau.y JJulli:
tis of the "iCth instant, suggests
that tho way to get a constitution
acceptable to .all, ia to have one
carefully and considerately drawn,
and then call a convention and put
it to vote before the wholo people.
Of couise, that's what should have
been done two years ago, and every
moderate man whose head was not
dizzy vith excitement know it at tho
time, but tho packed meeting of
June, 1887, vociferously refused to
listrii to wise counsels. Nothing
would satisfy but a new constitution
right away; thia would remedy all
the existing evils, of governmental
mnnagcmcni, and set the country
and everybody in it upon a sound
foundation. A self-constituted con
clave met with closed doors, and
after a week's scrlusion, launched,
with great uoiso and ostentation,
the voluminous document which 1ms
been n puzzle to judges, lawyers,
nnu politicians ever since, ine
people were never consulted, and
for that reason as well as because of
the nature of the implement, the
people have never been satisfied.
The immense cloud of smoke that
accompanied the dingy flash of pro
clamation quickly lifted, revealing
the distressing jumble of jargon the
country had been nfllicted by. A
most felicitous opportunity for
modifying our clumsy institutions,
and moulding them into something
like a rational and beneficial policy,
produced an abortion. The men
who assumed the right to make a
fundamental law for the nation,
without the nation's authorization,
hail picked up their knowledge of
such matters somewhere dirt cheap,
and from the sample produced must
have been rather pleased to get rid
of it at any price.
