WANTED, A POLICY.
Km i ok Hii.u;n: In a feverish
utlk'lc in the Advertiser of Satur
day lust, eliiclty on the need of earn
est nml united' effort, lest the pub
lit! will "snow under" the National
ISeform Party, the writer, in the
usual orthodox btyle, divides the
liuhlic in their political paths, into
two elasses, the wickort and the jusl,
To use his own words: "There are
hut two main issues presented to the
country; the maintenance of real
coust it utiosnl government, or to ic
turn to the rotten days of old,"
There is no purgatory for the wealc
in the reform faith. Kven the evo
lutionist who hopes to see the reform
faith rovised and placed on a more
enduring basis: who declines to
swear by lurmim fallibilities as seen
in the session just past, and hesi
tates to plcdgVhis unswerving alle
giance, by faun, in the luiurc ot
jnoved fallibility, has to take Ins
place on the left of the reform judge
with the goats, and be branded
as "without principle or patriot
ism!" Hut what are the principles
to which our allegiance is demand
ed? The only reply which the witter
vouchsafes is, clearly, that neither
he nor his principals have any pro
gram of policy, and that his motto
should be, "men, not measures."
Xow, sir, this is to much for hu
man gullibility. By faith, the theo
logian can move mountains of doubt ;
but his brother statesman cannot,
anil it will be well when the religi
ous penmen who seem to take turns
at the politico-reform wheel can
lealise, on changing front to poli
tics, that, as a science, politics be
long to the domain of reason. The
Matesmau is expected to realise not
only that there is an cvcr-rcvolving
I'linent of events, each as varying
as thepicturcsof a kaleidoscope, con
cerning the national wclfaie, but
:hat the public under "real consti
tutional government" expect, at,
aiifh periods as tins present, that
the statesman will take the public
into his confidence. If it has not
lieeu the custom here to do so, in
the woids of a late number of the
Advertiser, it is about time that it
tu'oame the custom.
The writer is frantic in his efforts
to scare his stragglers into line.
This is all very well as the yell of a
whipper-in to his parly, butthegen
tial public, who pay for their poli
tics being decently managed, expect
.omcthing more than a demand upon
their faith in the manner proposed
by the Advertiser. We arc not all
making politics a trade, and we
would have tho3c who do so, to le
cognise the tact now and then.
Hut the Advertiser, rccogui.ing
the tact that the ministry have no
piesentablc outline of policy to
tiling before the people, hava out
lined a plan by which the Cabiuet
can be furnished with a bran new
set of ideas which they can spread
out into a policy, and can hold on
to until some ot the "conservative
elements," say the Chamber of Com
merce, shakes its castellated fist at
them, and tells the pliant and oti
constructed Cabinet that such ideas
wcie not theirs in the first place, and
just to hand them over like a lior
Yes, we sue to have an election
within au election possibly some
new development in machine poli
tics and, as it is to be by the
"dober conservative elements of the
country," wc don't expect the rill'
larf to put their spoke into that
select wheel. No one under the
i ank of manager or head lima should
be eligible to sit in that parliament
of the conservatives. And this is
proposed under the head of Reform!
Where are the people to come in, in
this little job of the "sober and con
servative?" Here is a picture at,
the eleventh hour, of a little job
that Reform is to spring upon the
people! Here is a confession, that
the selected champion Reform states
men are pumped dry, and will wel
come the aid of any iM delegated
Uauipa to give them an ideo! The
proposal is sublime, oriainal, alto
gether too unique even for satire.
The platforms of the Mechanics'
and Workingmcn's I'nion and of the
Hawaiian Political Association have
been severely criticised by the Gov
ernment organ, but they have the
merit of showing their handiwork,
and they have no "walking dele
gates" whose trade is politic. These
unions don't pieteud to be able to
steer everybody's politics. The
Ministry, so far, appear to have
only one card to play, but it i not
enough to know their,declaratiou on
the Chinese question while the conn--try
is threatened with a deluge ot a
yet cheaper labor, and this is not
the only point upon which the pub
lic have a right to expect Ministers
to break silence on mattersior gen
eral interest. More anon.
