MONDAY, MAR. 24, 1800.
Wo arc rrquested by the Auditor
General to state that he declined to
approve one budget of vouchers for
prison labor, pending the lejiilt of
the mandamus case, but that no
vouchers, on that account, have since
been presented to him.
THE MANDAMUS CASE.
The Minister of Interior lias in
tervicwed himself in the Advertiser
in regard to the Mandamus case.
Mr. Thurston does not accept Judge
McUully's decision with the best of
grace. In fact, lie decidedly dis
sents in no very courteous terms.
Perhaps he considers himself a bet
ter authority on law than the Judge.
It is undoubtedly one of Ills Excel
lency's uufortunale ilcficicneie as a
Minister of the Crown that he has
not the knack of concealing his
strong dislike of being opposed in
anything lie undertakes. A trifle of
the old Shepherd's equanimity of
mind and suavity of manner would
be an improvement in the Grand
Young Man's mental composition,
which the public could scarcely fail
to appreciate. The complaint was
formerly made that the previous
Auditor-General was too easy, and
allowed Ministers to draw moneys as
they pleased. Was not Mr. Thurs
ton one of the complaiiiorsV The
present incumbent was appointed to
the position with the belief that he
would faithfully carry out the Audit
Act, as well as for that express pur
posit ; and now that he attempts to
do so according to his understand
ing of the law, his interpretation
being backed by the Supreme Court,
both the Auditor-General and the
Court arc an offense and an obstruc
tion to the Administration, and the
Minuter of Interior loses his balance.
That letter to the Marshal is simply
a discreditable exhibition of childish
petulance. There appears to be no
occasion for such a splutter. If
Judge McCully's reading of the law
is erroneous which Mr. Thurston
says it is, hut perhaps nobody else
thinks so the full Court can rectify
the error ; and if the law is found
obstructive to a proper administra
tion of public affairs, it can be
amended by the Legislature which
is shortly to meet. In the meantime
the Auditor-General has the support
of public opinion in carrying out
the law as he finds it.
THE FIRST THINC TO CAPTURE.
Judging from the report of pro
ceedings at the last monthly meet
ing, the Y. M. C. A. is disposed to
make "an intelligent presentation of
the temperance ibsue to the next
Legislature." With this end in
view a committee ot three was ap
pointed, "to gather data for a re
port." No doubt intemperance
meaning druukenness is a great
evil; the evil is here; the Legisla
ture is iu duty bound to do all it
cau to lemovc the evil, and it is
proper and commendable of the Y.
M. C. A. to render all assistance in
its power. These arc accepted pro
positions, and therefore need no
discussing. But there is another
proposition, evident to observing
and reasoning men, but apt to be
ignored by enthusiasts, bigots, and
inexperienced portions, which the
Intelligence of both the Y. M. C. A.
and the Legislature should be fully
cognisant of. It is this: intemper
ance is an evil which Government,
without the backing of public senti
ment, is powerless to remedy. "In
the first place, where all legislation
is controlled by the people through
their representatives, it is hard to
effect the enactment of laws, no
matter how wise and good, which
are antagonistic to the people's
wish; and so if public sentiment be
distinctly in favor of freedom of the
liquor tralllc, the Legislature will
naturally bo slow to adopt restric
tive measures. In the next place,
the best of laws cannot be effectu
ally enforced where thoy interfere
witii the profits and convenience of
individuals, unless they are sup
ported by public opinion. So if the
Legislature were to pass a law to
.shut up forever all the liquor-selling
establishments in the country, thus
assailing the interests of those en
gaged in the trade and affecting the
convenience of those who patronize
it, and the endorsement of publio
sentiment wore wanting, the liquor
would be nold and the liquor would
be hud all the same in spite of the
Iaw No improvement, worth the
namo, in regard to general Inleni
.iciatc drinking habits can be of
fi cted until a real and intelligent
desire in the matter is created
among the people at large ;t and any
l.iw aiming to enforce temperance
will be little better than waste pa
per until such law is demand) d mid
supported by that desire. There
fore public sentiment, and not the
Legislature, is the first thing to cap
At the last monthly meeting of
the Y. M. C. A., the Employment
Committee, through its chairman,
reported that "applicants for em
ployment were mostly intemperate
men, who subsequently disgraced
the recommendations which secured
their engngement. Such outcome
of the benevolent endeavors of the
committee impaired its influence, ns
it has come to be a recognize fact
that the men who availed themselves
of its kindness are unworthy." This
is certainly a discouraging experi
ence. The efforts of the Y. M. 0.
A. iu seeking to secure employment
for those in need thereof, mostly
strangers, are purely benevolent.
There is no fee accepted for the
service. The only reward obtained
is the satisfaction of having assisted,
or having endeavored to assist, a
fellow creature in need of help. The
committee charged with this parti
cular duty has by its exertions pro
cured employment for many a man
who would otherwise have sought iu
vain, but who has subsequently dis
graced the recommendations of his
benefactors by his intemperate
habits. Such experience is not only
disheartening to the committee, but
it has a natural tendency to create
distrust of all applicants, and as a
consequence worthy men stranded
on a foreign shore may suffer un
deserved neglect. As to the class
of men referred to by the Employ
ment Committee, that is the very
class which, above all others, derides
the Y. M. C. A., curses the com
munity, and damns the country.
The results produced by their own
deeds, and the consequences merited
by their own conduct, they blame to
everything aud to everybody, except
The largest cargo. of sugar that
ever went out of the port of Kahului
was shipped by the ship Merom,
Capt. Glover, of Bath, Maine, which
left port last Saturday, 22nd iust.,
being towed out by the Likelikc.
She carried about 1900 tons of
sugar, valued ut 8175,971.48. A
nice little samplelot of the sweet
commodity, which will probably bo

genial "Chris," is to be congratu

no doubt are largely due to his un

He brought down a line dark stal

The weather has improved con
siderably since the last heavy storm,
although still threatening and un

operations and are turning out sugar

The second part opened with u
elog dance which was well executed.
The stump speech of J. Barrett was
just about determining the "Origin
of Man" when a stage policeman
determined the end of Barrett.
"Mary MaginnU's" mother, fami
liarly known as J. Mooney, came on
the stage in the most alluring attire
and sang the excellence of her
daughter fait ly well and danced it
far better. Whether in the ballet,
jig or breakdown the old lady seem
ed to be at home. The gallant
audience recalled her several times
and the last tiina hlio oliassezed
across the stage iu agonizing ob
liquity. The recitation, "The Life
Boat," was rendered in costume.
The Irish coiuedian was recalled and
gave a very good Jig, clog and Lan
cashire clog intermixed. "Believe
me if all this endearing charms,"
was rendered with variations as a
banjo solo by T. K. Flight. The
farce, "Wigmakcrs," was acted
with spirit and created great amuse
ment. Three rounds of boxing next
followed. The sparring showed
considerable cleverness and present
ed two distinct styles of the manly
art. The single stick bout was
fought with great vigor. The audi
ence dispersed in good humor and
no one regretted the expenditure of
inot.cy which had'procuied him such
a pleasant entertainment and would
be applied to such a wise use.
The proceeds amounting to three
or four hundred dollars go to the
British Benevolent Society. The
management wishes to express ic
gret for a deficiency of extra chairs
downstairs, owing to the attendance
being beyond expectations.
HAWAII TAX APPEALS.
Editou BuLMvm : Mr. C. L.
Carter informs us in a late issue of
your paper that he owns no "sugar
stock" thi3, in connection with a
proposed investigation regarding his
illegal appointment on the Hawaii
Tax Appeal Board. Some olllcial
returns in the Interior Ofllce show
that on June 30th, 1889, (the as
sessment was made as of July 1st)
the same C. L. Carter was stock
holder in C. Brewer & Co. : that his
father, II. A. P. Carter, was the
largest owner in the tame corpora
tion: that his brother, his aunt and
his uncle were stockholders in the
same corporation, or iu plantations
which had appealed against their
taxation, and on which appeal he
was appointed lo sit, did sit, and
did take part in reducing the taid
taxation : that C. Brewer & Co. are
either very heavy or majoiity own
ers, or lessees (with sole interest iu
the taxation) of four largo planta
tions on whose appeals he sat as
above, viz. : Onomea, Paukaa, Ho
noinu, and Hawaiian Agricultural
(Piihala): aud also that the Minister
who appointed him was himself a
stockholder in C. Brewer & Co. and
consequently was also directly pecu
niarily interested in the result of the
appeal. A Taxiuyku.
