Although, judging from reports
that conic to hand from time to
time, our road board system cannot
be ptonounced an unqualified suc
cess, it has never been shown that
the system, or some modification
thereof, cannot be made to woik
satisfactorily. The experience of
the past two years lias probably re
vealed defects to intelligent observ
ers, which the coming session of the
Legislature should give attention to,
with the view of amending. The
policy of placing roads and road
moneys under local control has been
tried in many countries, and after
long trial declared sound and satis

three he should resign: this, on
British precedent. Hut, while Brit
ish parliamentary politics are gov
erned by precedent, ours, in similar
conditions, arc governed by Consti
tutional provisions. In England
the Prime Minister is the Cabinet,
so far as practical results go. If
another member is "not in accord"
the Prime Minister may demand h'i3
resignation, or the Queen may exer
cise her prerogative and dismiss
him, or, she may dismiss the Prime
Minister himself, or the entire Cabi
net. The Prime Minister advises
the Queen. Here we have no Prime
Minister. There, everything is gov
erned by precedent: here, by writ
ten law, either constitutional or
statutory. Here, no statutory pro
vision can annul the meaning or in
tent of the plain words of the Con
stitution (See Art. 10); there, par
liamentary law is, practically, the

NOW IS THE TIME.
The Advertiser is making a model
of .Joseph Cook's sermons. Its edit
orials each day consist of a prelude
and a harangue. In this morning's
prelude two very consistent pas
sages occur: "Let us have these de
tails right away. There is no time
like the present." The words just
quoted are addressed to the Attorney-General.
Then, speaking for
itself, the Adveitiser says, "In due
course we propose to publish the
'facts' concerning this subject."
"In due course" should have been
to-day, if, as you tell the Attorney
General, "tlicic is no time like the
present." Come, now, "let us
have these details right away." Do
not wait to have more falsehoods
conjured up about that treaty, as
when the Ministry denied all com
plicity with the protectorate pro
positi, on the draft being first
THE CABINET DIFFICULTY.
KtuTon 15i'i.i.i:tin :
It would be undignified in me to
further reply to the attack made
upon my ollicial action by the Ad
vertiser, ina sci ies of editorials,
continued from day to day. That
journal having suggested my im
peachment by the Legislature, for
the olfense ot differing in opinion
from its political friends, who con
stitute a majority of the Cabinet,
and the Legislature being the only
competent tiibunal for the settle
ment of the existing diffeiencc, let
me express my hope that the afore
said majority will join me in advis
ing the King to convene the Legis
lature at the eat Most practicable
dale. My entire information on
treaty matters will then be at the
disposal of that body.

THE THREE-LEGGED CABINET,
AND THE COLONELCY.
Knrrou Hui.i.um :
At tide 40 of the Constitution
says: "The Cabiuet shall consist of
the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the
Minister of Interior, the Minister
of Finance, anTTthe Attorney-General."
The Supreme Court have
nevertheless said that lliiee members
compose the Cabinet. They ariive
at this conclusion a conclusion op
posed to the only plain meaning
of the words of the Consti
tution by citing (1) the wording
of several statutes where "the Cabi
net," "the entire. Cabinet," "all the
members of the Cabinet," are used
in reference to certain duties; (:.')
by drawing from Kngli.sh precedent.
Hut they entirely ignore the an
tithesis implied by these facts. In
tile Hawaiian Military Act, wherever
it is provided that the Colonel elect
may be disapproved, it can lie done
by a "majority of the Cabinet;"
bill where any appointment is men
tioned, it must icceive the approval
ol "the Cabinet." Each of these
contingencies is more than once re
ferred to in the Act and each al
ways in the same terms rejection,
by the "majority of the Cabinet,"
new appointment, by "the Cabinet."
To the learned judicial mind, it may
be quite clear why the stupid Legis
latuie, composed in great putt of
lawyers, should so radically distin
guish the duties of "the Cabinet,"
and a "majority of the Cabinet,"
and yet mean the same thing by
both: especially in faco of Article
Further, the Court pay if one
member fails lo
tliev may then enforce the signin
of ' the 'objectionable tieaty by tl
King. If the King were once throt
tled by a "three-legged" Cabinet,
the majority could ciitoice anything
and everything to their pleasure,
befoic the meeting of the Legisla
ture, and have themselves immov
ably planted in the interest of a few
wealth acquirers, on the very ground
they fought out disastrously to them
selves on the Stli of February. Does
llritish precedent show us a Cabinet
or a Prime Minister cndeavoiing to
force upon the Sovereign an objec
tionable measure against which the
people have already passed their
vote, and on the very eve of the
meeting of a hostile (or any) Pailia
ment. The learned Judges are very
snaring of their "British prece
dents'' simply because they cannot
be found to lit their view ot tins
case; while the only one they do
refer to is here merged in first a
constitutional, and next a statutory
provision ; so that no British prece
dent can bo invoked to defend the
illogical conclusion that where the
same statute limits certain powers
to "the Cabinet," and certain others
to a "majority of the Cabinet," these
two expressions mean one and tiie
same tiling. Loon .
Kditou Itn.iXTix :
As the time for the meeting of
the Legislature is drawing near, we
wish to suggest to the elected mem
bers lo consider and investigate the
workiug of the road laws as passed
by the piesenl Government in 1887.
If we could believe the Advertiser
and the election stumpers of the
Reform paity, it would seem that
never has the country seen such
good roads, and that the road boards
are just the thing. If we listen on
the other side to the taxpayers living
outside Honolulu, we hear a difi'ercnt
story. 'We learn that most of the
boards only watch the interests of
the members, who mostly are plan
tation managers, improve the roads
over which tiie plantation tails
travel, and neglect the other roads
in a shameful manner. We find thai
the salaries paid for overseers, etc.,
far exceed anything ever paid under
the Gibson regime, and in several
places we hear about internal quar
rels and disagreements in the boards.
It is to be hoped that the coming
Legislature will go back to the
former system and have one road
suponiso'r in chief for each island,
and let hii.i control and lay out the
work to he done, and he-ides he the
treasurer of the money to be ex
pended on loads. If the roads un
der the foimer Government were in
a bad condition, the fault was lo be
found in Honolulu, where the road
moneys weie illegally spent, and not
in the system of managing the load
depaitment, which was very com
plete and worked well.
The way the road boards carry on
without the slightest regard to the
law of 1887 is worthy of comment.
Section .1 of the said law prescribes
that the meetings of the board shall
take place in the courthouse of the
district and be public, and that at
these meetings "locality and me
thod of labor and ajnounts of money
to be expended snail be decided
upon, and suggestions in regard to
work to be done shall lie received
from any taxpayer resident of the
district.' We have yet to leirn in
what district on the island of Maui
this section lias been complied with.
The Road Hoard in Makawao con
sists only of two members, who, it is
understood, are in a permanent Rl:ilu
of disagreement, but still no thiid
party is appointed to complete the
board. In Wailuku heavy expenses
are being incurred without thu pub
lic being given a chance to investi
gate if these expenses aro inclined
judiciously, or eventually make sug
gestions, which might prove a bene
fit. The board in Wailuku, by the
way, consists of tluee members, of
which the two dining all business
hours are strictly confined to their
olllces, while the thiid, who receives
a salary from the Government of
83000 a year, should, to judge from
the size of the salary, have enough
to do lo earn it without being hot ti
ered by road work and everything
pertaining thereto. Ton many 'bosses
never work well. Let us have one
head for thu island and let him ap
point ulllcient men to bo road super
visors in the different districts, and
we are sure that the woik will lie
more substantial, cheaper, and less
dillelante than it is now. May the
assembled wisdom to come hear our
pi oyer, 'J'Axi'Avr.iis.
Maui, April J).
Km urn Hn.i.r.TiN :
There must have been some forci
ble and truthful home thrusts, in
"Stray Notes" by "Anlisliamus,"
to have brought forth such weeping
and wailing and gnashing of teeth,
as appears to be running through
the epistle of "Aiili-Aiitishamus,"
In the Gazette of Apill I. Wo know
that the truth, conrclly and well
told, oftentimes cnt3 deeper than a
falsehood ; which probably accounts
tor the whine spiced with llallery
in parts of "Auti's" epistle. He
says, "The loafer agrees with you
entirely." Loafer, is It? Hold
there, my line fellow, me loaier, as
you call him, gave your clique such
a set back on the oth Feb. last that,
politically, you will never recover
from it again. You found the loafer
unpleasantly plentiful on that day,
did you not? The only truth that I
can find in his article is where he
says, "In this country, the question
of'thc missionary in politics is a dead
issue," etc., which is true, but be
ing the third time of his political
death. The first occurred on the
death of Kauikeaouli. The .second
on the death of Lunalilo. The third
on the death of justice and princi
ple; caused by a complication of
iliseasc, one among nip niimner
being disfranchisement. There is
not the least doubt in my mind, that
this wll bp thp last political death
of the missionary; therefore the
public should be 'merciful api) let
him down easy. Hut if he expects
to have mercy shown him, he must
box up those political blood and
thunder sermons, also those politi
cal twisters that loo often appear in
the columns of the Friend, for they
only Irritate and create bad blood.
My opinion Is that a political
preacher or church member Is a
inichlef-nial;er, and a bad animal
to have in any community. The
moment a preacher commences to
preach politics from the pulpit,
or outside of Hie pulpit, he
immediately loses confidence and re
spect from the outsido world, and
oltentimes from the inside. Politics
and religion mixed together will
cause friction and no amount of
oil will stop it. As for the Adver
tiser and Gazette, their operators
are supposed to have gone crazy
upon loo much Bush politics, and
commercial treaties, therefore hardly
responsible for their acls. Mr.
Bush should call a halt and let up
on the Rev. Mr. Parker, for rest
assured if all missionaries were of
his stamp there would be no trouble
in tliis little country as far as the
missionary is concerned. Another
thing, the natives have no better
friend in Hawaii than the Rev.
Henry Parker. Snii'i.i: Simon.
