FRIDAY, l'Kll. 7, 1800.
Since the appearance of a nolo In
the IUji.i.ktin nbout a week rnio in
reference to a circular letter from
the Illshop of Ollia to his clerjry,
several persons have expressed a
desire to see the document. To
yitUfy their wish the circular is

1 tumors having tiecu current that
.ludge Dole, who is booked to leave
by the Zealandia,uad been appointed
Hawaiian Minister at Washington
in place of Mr. Carter, our reporter
railed at the Foreign Olllce this
morning to ascertain the truth. His
Kxcellency Mr. Austin, Minister of
Foreign Affairs, declared the rumors
to be absolutely untrue, and said
the Judge was not decided whether
his visit to the States with Mrs.
Dole would extend beyond the l'aci
Conceding that the Advertiser is
correct in saying, that, under the
present election law, "the party in
power has not one advantage at tins
polls which the other side has not,"
it cannot bo truthfully denied "that
tic government, or airy government,
under our law, or any other law,
goes to the polls with the positive
advantages which the natural con
comitants of prestige, patronage,
and power confer. These advan
tages were held VTy the Hawaiian
Government on Wednesday last,
and still the Opposition carried
within a unit of everything, as far
us this island is .concerned, which
hows the strength of public opinion
on the side of the latter.
The Advertiser considers the He
form party entitled to commenda
tion for the passage of the election
law, a feat for which the party
"never got the least ciedit." If the
editor .will search up the files of the
Hullutin published durum the ses
sion of the Legislature, he will dis
cover that he is mistaken in regard
to "least ciedit." It may be added
that it was the ltefnrm party who
killed the absolutely secret clause in
the oiiginal bill, a clause -trongly
advocated by the present editor of
the Advertiser, in which lie was
backed bv the Hi i.i.i.tin. The law
as it slamK at present is capable of
considerable improvement, and it hs
hoped the next Legislature will un
dertake the task.
ECHOES OF THE CAMPAIGN
The election has shown that the
machine politics operated by ward
clubs and ward pledges can lie
beaten without any inch machineiy.
Notwithstanding the warnuh and
animation which preceded the cloc
uon, it is to the ciedit of the side in
the.iiiinoiity that for the most part
ic accepts the public verdict good
teinpoiedly. The "balance of power" is held
in Honolulu by the poorer clashes of
the white population, and they de
cided the election. A solid native
vote for Nobles would'haveheeii un
availing without the Mippoil ot the
.Mr. K. C. Macfttrlanc's proud
position, at the head of his ticket, is
no doubt due to his sensible
speeches. He talked neither HH
lingsgutc nor bunkum, but sound
common sense, and many who heard
or read his utterances, were induced
l hereby to give him their votes.
' Since the campaign lias elided
liomc Heformers express satisfaction
with It. W. Wilcox's successi They
my that had he liecn defeated a
large proportion of the' natives
throughout the country would have
been dissatisfied, whereas his elec
tion begets contentment and conci
liation. The campaign talk about the
"cleapness" of tins. Administration
was'prematine. How do the public
know whether that character is de
served or not? Hitherto wo have
nothing in substantiation thereof but
the ipse, dixit of thick-and-thin sup
porters. Let" us wait until the pro
per time, when a thorough examina
tion has been made, and then we
ihall be able to judge rightly. It is
known that Ihe Auditor-General has,
inoro than once, had to exercise great
llrmnoss to prevent infraction of
Gcnllcmcn should be careful what
they Bay In electioneering speeches,
always keeping in mind that they
may be ou the losing side. "Weak
minded men," "rabble," etc., are
offensive terms, and when directed
at men of whom the authors may,
after the election, have occasion to
ask favor-, are calculated to pro
duce humiliating feelings in the
minds of the tittcrers
One only of the four Ministers
look an active pait in the election
campaign, and considering that Min
isters arc. not elected by the people
it would have been more becoming
for that one to have refrained there
from. The law permits .Ministers to
take part to the extent of "publicly
or privately making oral or written
statements of the policy of the ad
ministration, or advocating the
same," but the delivery ol partisan
speeches, in which candidates for
the people's suffrages are dissected
and gibbeted seems to be in excess
of legal authorisation.
A most heathenish belief prevails,
that "all things are fair in politics,"
including lying, bare-faced lying,
nud inspired by this faith persons"
from whom belter things were ex
pected deluged the community with
the pestilence of lying during the
campaigu. Home of it arose from a
narrow prejudice which precluded
an impartial examination of evi
dence, and some was downright, in
tentional lying, resorted to solely for
the purpose of influencing votes.
Are men who justify wilful lying for
political end"; to be trusted in any
thing? Latest Foreign News.

Cnthollr Ctat-gy In I lie
Reverend and Ihur Fathers:
We witness that, on llic occasion
of the scorning elections, political
questions are freely discussed in
newspaper, in public meetings and
in private conversations. I take the
liberty of addressing you a few re
flections in reference to this subject,
not for tho purpose of dictating to
you my privato opinion but wilutlic
intention of expressing some admit
ted principles and of denying cer
tain errors imputed to the Catholic
Mission by mistake or otherwise.
All inhabitants must desire the
good of the country. Kverybody
has the right to hae his own opin
ion in' political matters and to ex
press it for a good purpose. Tho
clcigy can use the same right with
out being controlled by any out
sider. Still, we must be prudent in
order that our actions in those mat
ters may never interfere with our
higher duties. Let the priest never
be an agitator; but I see no harm
in answering an inquiry about the
temporal welfare of the country or
of the. different races and classes in
these islands. '1 do not hesitate to
declare that I am for the indepen
dence of the country and that my
first, sympathy is with the poor and
with the working classes rather than
with the rich, who can always take
care of themselves. 1 suppose that
this is tlie general feeling of all
priests. Still, tills sympathy must
never go so far as to identify otir
sclver with any political party. Let
us not only be just to all, but, lor
the spiritual benefit of all cla.scs,
let us be equally devoted to every
one whatever may be his political
opinion. 1 am glad that it is not
our duty to ive a decision in this
I wisli you to understand well
that the headquarters of the Catho
lic Mission have no agent in any
wayiuthorued to represent our po
litical views. e let everybody
free, considering it unwise tointer
fere w ith the general feelings and
views of the native population. In
behalf of our religious interests I
have very little hope, although we
have good reasons to wi'sli for im
provements, the party actually in
power being generally known for its
real or supposed antipathy to the
Catholic religion. I say the party
in general, which contains different
elements. There aic some among
them whose parly feelings aie con
trolled by a sense of justice in their
official capacity ; some would even
be our best friends if it were not, for
that deeply-rooted 'prejudice against
"Popery," considered by them as
an unqualified evil. Rut I am sorry
to state the fact, that theic arc
many whose love of Christianity
seems to be weaker than their hatred
of Catholicity like "Hawaii Ponoi"
in tho Daily Hruxrix of the 20lh
On the Opposition side our pros
pects seem to lie equally poor.
There. arc certainly a good many in
telligent Catholics and fair-minded,
truly liberal Protestants, who would
do impartial justice to all parties.
Still there seems to be a large num
ber of our politicians imbued with
false liberality, who take for axioms
the most revolutionary principles
condemned by Pope Leo XIII.
(F.nc. ol June 20th, 1888). They
exclude God from State ami Schooi.
We cannot agree with the Mission
ary party because it woiks against us
and because its religion is defective ;
those false, liberal men hate the
Missionary party partly, because it
professes yet too much religion.
Their ideas are naturally even
stronger ngainst the Catholic reli
gion w Inch cannot always accommo
date itself to the fashionable ideas
of the day. Hence we have no
mercy to expect from those quart
ers, Our first and main duly is to
preach the Gospel the whole Gos
pelincluding the authority of God
in public affairs. According to the
Gospel everybody has a right to look
out for his temporal welfare; heads
of families, communities or states
arc even obliged to provide for those
under their care. lint the poor mu-t
not unjustly covet his rich neigh
bor's goods, bearing in mind that wo
are created for something belter
than earthly enjoyment. The best
human lawffwU' never change the
order of Providence, (paving the ma
jority of men in-'poverty. Christian
charity in the 'heart of the rich, ami
Christian piety,-patience and humil
ity in tlie heart of tlie poor, will do
more for people's happiness than all
human laws without reference to

misery in the world. Intemperance
is ceitainly a fruitful source of evil

lliclr existence. The Htate claims
tlie right lo give the children into
tlin hands of u teacher without con
sulting the parents-, Whatever de
licacy a liberal Hoard of Kdticatiou
may ue in tlie application of the
law, the principle is wrong. Chris
tian parents cannot bo pleased to
send their children to a school from
which religious instruction is ex
cluded, no matter for what specious
reason. ' fe-y
The upholders of the present
system will object that the parents
arc at liberty to send their children
Jo an independent school of their
own choice. In this thcro is, indeed,
little Inconvenience for' tho wealthy
people ; but for the poor it is an un
just hardship tO'pay taxes for other
people's benefit, while they have to
find nnothcr school for the necessary
education of their own children,
either against a new payment or by
charily. If this is not directly a
violent oppression of liberty of con
science,' it comes practically, In
many cases, to the same end. And
that' system of free (?) schools, un
der the monopoly of the State, is
called liberal 111 I do not know
whether the system is aimed at the
Catholic schools. The fact is, that
they are attained, in the first place,
by reason of poverty. It is really
sad to notice that, in the electioneer
ing campaigu, in all tlie pumic
meetings, in all the platforms and in
all tlie newspapers every recom
mendation is in favor of the. public
schools ; not the least sympathy is
expressed for the independent
schools, especially the Catholic.
What docs that mean? If we can
not obtain full justice to our cause,
let us hope that some member of the
next Legislature will understand the
mailer and will 4c bold enough to
bring the quesl ion olllcially before
the public. At all events, I am
satisfied to have performed a duty
by saying a few words in favor of
justice and true liberty. It is left
to your own judgment' to draw the
practical conclusions from these
principles according to circum
stances. HUKMANN, 1111101 OK Ol.llA,
