It took twenty mt'ii winking on u
Nuiulay, u steam roller operating
or some days afterwaul, anil seven
trips in a hack for a dollar, to refute
the llui.unis's brief reference, re
cently, to the Punchbowl hill road.
The editor of the Hawaiian
Hoard's department of the Fiietul,
referring to llev. J. N. l'niluili's
election cases, says, "IL is not

Among things yet lacking in our

THE ADVERTISER'S AGONY.
Iti'i.i.r.ns reviews of Advcitiser
editorials are seldom agreeable to
that journal, but our caustic expose
of the vindictivpiiess of its vindica
tion of the election law is the occa
sion of unusual impotent writhings.
1'osing as "moderate and non-partisan
in the extreme" it deprecates
the epithet of "organ," and ar
raigns us tor reading in its own
words "a sense utterly foreign to
The term "organ" has been earn
ed by the Advei User's unhesitating
and unblushing advocacy of every
measure emanating from the Ciov
eiiiinent. Whether or no it lauded
this particular act as a ministerial
measure is beside the question. The
Ibiu.KTix is not utterly at sea with
regard to the prosecution. The
conclusion of our editorial reads,
"A lingering suspicion exists that
the employment of Mr. Kinney as
counsel removes the case from the
arena of a just prosecution to that
of a partisan stratagem." Our in
ference was and is that the employ
ment of Mr. Kinney as sole counsel
(not as the Advertiser asserts, "to
assist") stamps this prosecution as
an outburst of partisan spite, rather
Ihan of outraged justice. And sin
gulaily enough the Government
journal arrives at the conclusion
that in this case "the machinery of
law was set in motion by private
parties." It repudiates the prose
cution as a ministerial measure.
The Ilri.i.ETix sees no cause for
felicitations over the issue of a pro
secution inspired by partisan spite.
It, is evident the Clovernment wash
ed its hands of the matter and left
Mr. Kinney to play a lone hand.
What the Government failed to
openly participate in, the Advertiser
cordially endorses. And its verdict
of "desirable consequence" sounds
forth as a triumphant whoop.
NOT FAIR, FRIEND.
The Ftiend .ays, regarding tho
segregation of lepeis: "The pres
sure for a relaxation of piesent
stiiotness is veiy severe fiom the
native people. Only a Cabinet who
are wry positive and determined
on this matter will resist such a
piessiirc. On this question the Na
tional I'cform platfonn was signifi
cantly silent. Should any of their
moil Mile, we may look for lepers at
large once more."
The Friend is disingenuous in its
partisanship. It was tho Reform
Party's platform that was "signill
cantly silent" on the matter in ques
tion. That "document entirely ig
tioi ed the question of public health,
while that of the National Reform
party made a distinct utterance
thereupon. The National Refonn
patty's, platform contained tho fol
lowing section: "Dim attention
must be given to the general educa
tion, with liberal supiMHt of public
schools; to tho health of the coun
try at large, and to the. nanitary con
dition of the city of Honolulu."
This was adopted by a ma6
meeting of the National Reform
party on January '2. The Reform
party's nominating convention was
held two weeks later, so that the
leaders of that parly had ample
time in which to formulate u decla
ration of policy in regard to the
public health, if they wished to us
Aiime a superior attitude to that ot
their opponents in the matter. Tlie
Jjt Mt-tfJ .v'. ..,'.
Reform Tarty, however, preferred
to maintain a "significant silence."
A periodical occupying the position
of the Friend, :i religious denomin
ational organ, ought to be far re
moved above the control of a patty
spirit that would dictate absolute
inisieptoseiitutioii. Tim Friend is
guilty of this nllenso not only in the
mutter above dealt with, hut when
it falsities the results of the election,
which it does by saving the National

A LITTLE STORY.
Km ton Bn.iXTtx: The Antisha
imis essay on .Juries brought to our
mind the' decision of the native jury
on the Wilcox case and with it an
old chestnut about a negro who was
a good member of the .Methodist
Church, but a source of annoyance
to other members because he otlen
shouted "amen" in the wrong place.
lie was expostulated with and
agiecd to keep silent, but it was
hard woik, and he would wiggle in
his scat with his efforts to suppress
his feelings. Eventually an elo
quent brother became too pathetic
and our unfortunate brother, spring
ing to his feet, shouted, "Amen I
hit er miss!" If that decision was
not "hit cr miss," the feeling was
BURYING THE HATCHET.
F.niTOit llu.i.iu.is: A writer in
the Advcitiser of Feb. 21th, who
signs himself thus .. digs up the
bloody shirt long enough to get in
his mud slinging and ditty insinua
tions at the National Ueforni patty
that he was capable of, then slinks
back to his den dtagging the bloody
shirt after him, winding' up w'ln lll
following lamb-like iciiiarks: "The
result of the election cannot be al
tered anyhow, and it would be much
belter to bury the hatchet than to
keep pouring oil onto the lire." I
think the friends of little dots should
instruct hint as to the proper mode
ol burying the hatchet himself, be
fore he' undertakes to protl'er advice
to others on the subject.
ECHOES OF THE CONTEST.
Km rot: IJii.i.r.riN : -A correspon
dent in the Hawaiian Waettc of
2."ilh tilt, advocates to "bury the
hatchet," after throwing out some
insinuations, that a certain person
who is under arrest for perjury was
induced to commit such perjury
through the inllueiice of National
Reform money, rum, or intimida
tion. The National Reform party
on Maui had during the last election
neither money nor gin, and the
meinheis of the patty are not in po
sitions which would enable them to
intimidate. Why does the corres
pondent not mention the trial pend
ing against the Wailuku plantation's
head hina for corrupt piaeticcs?
Perhaps that will show the use of
intimidation, etc., on the part of
the Reform patty. The men who
voted for the National Reform ticket
represent the independent voters
of the island, and a comparison with
the votes cast at the election in 1SS7
shows, that then the Opposition only
got 38 votes on their Noble ticket,
while this lime the opposition to the
Reform party polled about 200.
Wherefiom and why this change?
In 1SS7 the opposition did not
elect one representative, while in
1800 lliey carried four solid men
and one independent. There i3 no
doubt here that if the voters, par
ticularly on Baldwin's and Spreck
cls' plantations, had been left alone
to -vote as they pleased, the result
here would have been the same as
on Oahii. And there it is, where
legislation is wanted. The revision
ot the election law is the most ne
cessary act to be performed by the
coming Legislature. The secret bal
lot will help a great deal, but steps
should bo taken to elllciently pre
vent the plantation managers from
bulldozing their men into voting
The law in regard to challenging
of votes is also very unsatisfactory,
at least as carried out by the Minis
terial Inspectors of Flection here.
In case of a challenge, tho burden
of proof, that the would-be voter is
not. entitled to vote, ought to tall on
the man challenging, and all that
should be asked of the voter is his
oath to the effect that he is entitled
to vote or considers himself so, such
statement to be investigated it neces
sary after the election. In .South
Wailuku an instance happened,
which called for a great deal of
comment. On the election day a
votet a well known peddler of long
tesidencc here was challenged by
n gentleman, who is now elected as
Noble, no other cause being given
than that the challenger was morally
(sic!) convinced, that the voter had
not an income sufllcictit to entitle
him to a vote for Noliles, and if he
liad such income, ho did not derive
it from legitimate sources. A num
ber of persons were present, and
everybody know, including the chal
lenger, that the objection was highly
frivolous and simply caused through
spite on account of the peddler's
activity as a runner for the National
Reform party. Instead of adminis
tering an oath to the voter and stat
ing a cause for flic challenge, the
chairman of the Hoard of Inspectors
of course the obedient servant ol
the challenger began an examina
tion and cross-examination of the
voter, wanted to see his books, etc.
Tho man Uvea about three miles
from the polling place. Finally tho
voter was aljoivdl lp deposit his
DAILY lVrJLl.ETW: JlOTIQUNiU, II. t.,
voles and depart, after tho challeng
ing parly with his insinuations and
slurs hail succeeded in leaving an
impression upon. the minds of tlioso
present, that the peddler derived his
income in a dishonest manner,' which
certainly was not to the advantage
of the man in his business capacity.
The possibility of such perform
ances ought to be stopped and the
quicker the better.
In Noith Wailuku the chairm.tn
of the l'.oanl was furnished with a
list of "doubtful" volei.s made out
in the Uailul.ii Plantation idl'ieo.
All these "doubtful" nlcrs beloii"-
cil to the .National ueiorm patty,
and all were for the second time
sworn as to their income on the day
of election. This action was illegal ;
mot cover, tho Hoard neglected to
enter the challenge and its results
iu tlie Journal as ptesciibeil. All
this would not have been known It
the public if il had not conic out in
a trial in court, where the Hoard ap
peared as witnesses.
The most remarkable combination
appearing during this election is
the IJahlwiu-SpreckeU. Partictt
laily on Maui, the feelings which
the' "Colonel" used to enteitain
against the Baldwin faction are
well known, and it is highly doubt
ed hcte that tho Colonel's repre
sentatives acted in his spirit. The
"linn" sent a clerk here to iullii
ence the tenants on Sprockets' land,
and the young man with his auto
cratic ways barely escaped gelling
into trouble through his rather fresh
than prudent acts. Perhaps as a
result of his failure in iulluencing
the native tenants, we now find Chi
nese occupying some of the lands
and even hear about leases being
given, while it always has lieci the
i tile tliat no leases should be given
lor Spieckels' Wailuku lands, and
that Hawaiians always should be
preferred as tenants. Very likely
the "linn'' will have to depend on
Chinese votes in future elections
and lor a renewal of the steamer
subsidy. Surprising Is it that the
"linn" seems to have been unable
to control the Katt election, where
the Reform Nobles only got three
votes. Perhaps the manager of the
Kati plantation lias a mind of his
own and is not o easily led as his
