WKDNKSDAY, AIMM I, lfi,18fJ0.
Complaints leach us ot puli'nl I'wli
having been sold at the Kishinaiket.
On three different occasions one en
tlenian lias sent to purchase illi, anil
on each occasion the youngster sent
was supplied with a "fur-gone" ar
ticle. Here is a matter for investigation.
THE MINORITY QUESTION.
The Advertiser evades the pointed
(picries of the 11ui.i.ktis in regard
to minority rule, by first charging
in with having presented a "tissue of
misrepresentation or barefaced false
hoods fiom the first word to the
last," and then proceeding to niis
leprescnl our plain language. This
is one. way of meeting an opponent,
although not a way that honet men
approve ; but it pleases the Adver
tiser and does the Bit.nrn.v no harm ;
so wc let it pass. Of the two issues
the Colonelcy and the treaty the
first merely interests us as spectators
of a small typhoon in a little tea
not. Whether V. V. Afford or
II. ilebbard or the man in the moon
is Colonel of the Honolulu llilles,
v,e do not care two buttons. Nor
have we said or intimated that a
majoiilyof the people nppioves of
cither, or of anybody else ; but that
"the majority of the legal electors
cast their otcs for V. V. Ashford ;
.so that a minority ot the Cabinet is
on the side of a majority of the
electors of the Honolulu Rifles, etc."
This is plain enough for any school
boy, and ceitainly should be for the
editor of a paper. The "people"
aie'not in the question. The Willi's
volunteer their services, and they
have the election of their olllcers.
A majority of the electors of that
body made choice of one of their
number, without any reference to
the people, who have no voice what
ever in the affair.
The treaty issue is a different
matter. In it the lici.urix is more
than a curious spectator, and in it
tlic people have a voice. Whilst
earnestly desirous of continued re
lations with the United States on
the lines perhaps with some slight
modifications of the present reci
procity treaty, we are opposed to
any measure calculated to vitiate
for ever this country's indepen
dence; and in our opinion this is
just exactly what the projected
treaty does. That document, so far
as wc know, has never appeared in
pi int., and therefore wc have been
unable to learn fully its contents:
but can the Advertiser deny that it
cunt ains a clause which debars this
country withdrawing from the treaty
piovisions without the consent of
the I'nited Stales? Jf this is not de
struction to independence, what is?
lias the Advoitiser the bold cffion
lerv to deny that this phase of the
treaty project has liecn discussed
"before the election or since?"
Hither the memory that docs so is
lilfully weak or the conscience
dreadfully seared. Then, again,
will the Advertiser deny that a ma
joiilyof the people is opposed to
this surrender of independence? We
believe and have asscited that
the majority ot public sentimentis
decidedly against any such step,
and call upon our contemporary to
prove that we are mistaken. We
favor neither "tevoliition" nor "mi
nority rule." Have had enough of
both. If the majority of the nation
wishes to suircnder the independ
ence of the country, let it be done.
We arc satisfied. But for a minority
to attempt that end against the will
of the majoi ity is what we piotest
against, and we believe a majority
ot the people is opposed to a ma
joiilyof the Cabinet in this instance.
THE SAME OLD CONTROVERSY.
In his letter in this morning's
Advertiser, Mr. W. I'. Castle puts
forth some alleged principles of
government so utteily preposterous,
that I feel constrained to depart from
my resolution, to take no further
pait in this newspaper war, for the
purpose of noticing some of them.
Air. Castle and I have worked to
gether too long to leave me in any
doubt as to the sincerity of his soli
citude for that much-defined, but,
perhaps, little understood ideal de
scribed as constitutional government.
It is very surprising that a man of
his intelligence and learning should
express the sentiment that "our
model should be England, for we
have a hereditary monarchy, and
the popular voice cannot be express
ed from time to time, us in the
United Slates, in frequent changes
in the head of the executive." Bui
if Mr. Castle's theory of Purlin
mentary Government is correct,
(and I believe it is), of what conse
quence is it whether the "head of
the executive" is ever changed? It
seems to me very much of a chestnut
to lug Hnglish precedents into the
situation heie. Kvery one of any
insinuation knows them to be in
applicable, because of the iriecnu
citable difference between their con
stitution and ours. Let me leach
Mr. Castle a lesson of reverence for
the aheady much-venerated "opin
ions" of the Supreme Couit, and
remind him of the facility with
which those judicial gentlemen can
scout the "Knglish precedents"
when it serves their purpose aa
witness the veto case, and the Cliain
But the most astounding part of
Mr. Castle's position is his plea for a
Premiership. This would be farci
cal, were it less seriously preposter
ous. He enlightens the Hawaiian
upon an impoitant point of its poli
tical history when he declares that
"the. present Cabinet was called by
Mr. Green, tnul tewu he went out,
U has lem pu-ltij icwwf under
stood Unit Mr. 'J'iiiiVloti Jilted his
plute." The phrase" which I have
ualieuea contains ins new coninwu
tion lo history, I hope Mr. Castle
will fuithcr enlighten actuioHs pub
lie with llic information by whom
"it has been pretty generally under
stood," etc., and by what authority
Mr. Thurston has since "filled that
place?" Though in a position to
have imbibed such "understand
ing," I hare certainly never so un
derstood the facts, at least if it be
conceded, (and I den) that even
Mr. Green was Pjeniier under the
present constitution. The fact is,
and no one knows it belter than Mr.
Castle, and no one has confessed it
oftcner than Mr. Tliuislon. and no
two assertol it oftcner than those
two gentlemen, duriua the Gibson
administration, that there is no such
position as Premier known to oui
constitution or laws. If 1 mistake
in this, pcthaps Mr. Castle will point
out the constitutional or statutory
provision by virtue of which that
But the height of the ridiculous
is reached by Mr. Castle when lie
pleads for 'my lecognilion ol'such
potentate, and "my submission to the
latter's request for my resignation.
If J have coircctly understood the
import of the 'Adveiliser edito
rials, and of Mr. Castle's letter,
they constitute an emphatic, not to
sav frantic appeal against what they
dub the "one man power." But
what is the end and aim of Mr. Cas
tle's plea for the authority of a Pre
mier, and the adoption of "jMlgllSll
piecedcnts?" Obviously, lo concen
trate in Mr. Thurston the "one man
power," and clinch it so fast Ihal
not even his thiee colleagues should
be able in any degree to prevail
against it. How stiange that Mr.
Castle did not see the inconsistency
of his position in seeking to place in
the hands of our mutual friend, Mr.
ThiiMou, (friend, in spite of tem
porary political dilfeiences,) the
power of political life and death
over his colleagues, and the King
and kingdom at large. For, if the
alleged "Premier" could constitu
tionally demand Hie resignation of
one Minister, there is nrely nothing
to pi event his being equally atten
tive lo hi- other two colleagues,
whencer caprice 01 policy should
"FROM THE HOUSETOPS."
timioit Bnu.r.Tix :
The information in Ihis morning's
Advcitiser from V. K. Castle, to
the effect that Mr. Thurston has
been "Premier" since Mr. Green's
retirement from the Cabinet, is
rather refreshing. As there is no
such a person as Pieinier, it lacks
the element of tiulli, however. So
also dues Mr. Castle's statement
that the Cabinet of S7 was "called
by Mr. Green." It is line that, to
outsiders, things had such appear
ance, but for the same reason that
all the star-chamber appointments
of the day were kept secret from
the outside world, i.e., so far as
their methods were concerned- only
theiesults being published. Mr.
Green was himself appointed
("named," as Mr. Castle has it)
by llie "Council of Thirteen," the
governing body of the Revolutionary
League as were also all the mem
bers of the Revolutionary Cabinet.
After all, Mr. vastle is not so much
to blame for falling into the popular
error as to the methods of "Cabinet
making" of those days; for l.e left
the country on .Inly I'd, '87, dining
the most critical 'moment of that
tioublous peiiod, and stayed away
till everything was settled down,
and having already practically sever
ed his connection'witli the League,
for private reasons, wai not in n
position to know, you know.
