The statement having gained cur
rency tlmt kerosene oil below the
legal test Is now being imported and
sold hero, Marshal Soper invited ic
prescntnlivcs of the press to his
olllcc this morning, for the purpose
t of laving the facts of the ease befoie
them. The Marshal it the olllcial !
entrusted with the duty of testing ',
kerosene, and seeing that it is of
that quality to fulfil the requirements
of law. lie makes the tests and
keeps a record thereof. The law
provides that oil which will not stand
a test of 100 degrees bhall not be
admitted. The Marshal Is notified
by the Custom House when a ship
ment of oil arrives, and u test is
made before n permit to land is
granted. A : matter of fact, two
shipments have been recently re
turned to Sun Frauciseo because
they did not stand the test, and no
oil has been permitted to land be
low the required 100 degrees. Pro
bably there may be inferior oil in
the market, but this Is owing to the
fact that the legal test is placed too
low. Anyhow, this is the opinion of
men competent, to judge. That is a
question for the consideration of the
FOKTY-FXFTH ANNUAL BEPORT
ISSUED HY TUB
The approaching session of the
Legislature "casts its shadow
ahead ;" the shadow has fallen on
our respected contemporary at
llilo, and appears to have produced
a distressing nightmare. While in
this condition the "Uccord" gets off
the following: "At the present
crisis, when concord is most needed,
we find our Cabinet divided, and
that, too, when the near approach
of the sesston of the Legislature
calls for unanimity in the measures
to be proposed. If it i not so what
can we expect ftom a Legislature,
composed as ours is, of two oppos
ing parties about equally matched?
The one trying to keep the present
form of good government, and the
other working to break it down and
to have it restored to the old style.
If our Ministers disagree, what can
we expect but that at least a partial
overthrow of the era of progress
and reform, and that, as far as it is
possible, the one man power be re
stored, with all the evils attending
such a state of government."
Had the "Kecord" not been, for
the lime being, subject to an irra
tional influence, instead of regard
ing the near approach of the Legis
lative session as a circumstance
rendering a disagreement in the
Cabinet as specially unfortunate,
the conclusion would have been that
ti disagreement could not have oc
curred at a much moie opportune
time. AVe concede that irreconcil
able differences between members
of u Cabinet, at any time, are usu
ally iindesiinblc ; but if they do hap
pen, they cannot happen more for
tunately than when the Legislature
is in session, and the next best time
to that is when the session i- near at
hand ; because, under our Constitu
tion, the Legislature has the power
to secure an acceptable Cabinet. A
close ot the session might keep the
disagreement occurring after the
(Jovernuicnt in a turmoil for the
next two years; for there is no legal
power to compel cither the minority
or the majority to resign; or if
there he an equal division, to com
pel either half, or the whole, to re
linquish their poitl'olios; and if the
Cabinet irsign the people have no
legal power to prevent the appoint
ment of another composed of unlit
men, who might commit endless
mischief before the next session.
Whereas the Legislatutc, while in
lessiouj can vote out any set of
men. and keep on voting out, until
an acceptable Cabinet is obtained.
As to ' unanimity in measures, to
bo piopood," that is a trilling mut
ter, eonsidoiiiig that any .Minister
has :t right to iiilioduce any measure
he may wish, and, if the past is to
lie a precedent tor the future, the
Legislature will not estimate its
merit by Ministerial unanimity or
the lack theicot.
Where the 'Id-cord V nightmare
gels the strongest grip is when the
comparison is drawn between the
two pm ties composing the Legisla
ture, "the one trying to keep up the
pi esent form ot good government,
and ilie other working to break it
down, and to have it restored to the
old style." Some people arc so
constituted that they can utter an
iintiutli, knowing 1t to be an un
truth, and by lepeated utterances
of the same convince themselves
that they are speaking the truth.
By a great .stretch ot charity we in
cline to the bcliot that such is the
case with many people who talk in
thc.stialnsnt the "Keeord," and that
the "Ileeord" itself is in that condi
tion. In fact, the sentences just
now quoted, although they have
been spoken and printed a thousand
times, are singularly untruthful
they are, indeed. Think of the ab
surdity of believing that men with
large interests in the country, those
interests being as much depeudent
on good government as the iutciests
of the people on the other side of
politics, "working to break down"
good government! The fact is, the
majority of each party desires good
government, and probably a coin
pariRou of views regarding tho
meaning ot the term would show
that in the main there is but little
difference between thorn. For our
selves, wc have confidence that
there is sutlleient sense in the Le
gislature as u who e to avoid the en
actment of any glaring folly.

A LIVE QUESTION.
We think the editorial in the Ad
vertiser of yesterday, headed "What
will they do about" it," puts more
into the question then really belongs
there. We think that everything
relating .to the Aitorney-Ucneral
should be stricken trom tho ques
tion, which the Legislature may be
called upou to consider.
The question as to "what is a
Constitutional Cabinet," has been
alreadv decided, not onlv by all
civilized constitutional governments
but by our own highest tribunal,
and that decision is, that all the
members ot a Cabinet or a majority
of lliein, are the "Cabinet" for busi
ness purposes. That one member
of a Cabinet should disagree on
some point i-t not a killing matter,
nor an cxtraoulinary occurrence;
but to tlnd four men of unquestion
ed intelligence who could examine
many momentous questions for two
years without a disagreement, that
would be extraordinary indeed.
Tor the Lecislaturo to vote n
"want of confidence" m the Cabinet
because one member disagreed with
tho other three would be childish,
or for tho Legislature to spend time
trying to oust a Cabinet Minister
because hu disagreed with the ma
joritv, we would think equally weak.
Where would such a pernicious
principle end if given I00-.0 reins?
The Altornny-Geneinl may disagree
with the Cabinet to-day,, and the
Minister of Foreign Affairs may dis
agree with the Cabiuet to-morrow,
and the Minister of tho Inteiiormay
disagree with the Cabinet next day,
and -o on. If all ot these in turn
must be dismissed because they
can't agiee with the Cabinet, such a
course wouM destroy the best of
ho we think the Legislature has
nothing to do with the want of unity
in the Cabinet, as long as the Cabi
net attend to their duties m an
acceptable manner; and if they
don't the Legislature will know just
what to do.
Neither do we think the Legisla
ture -dioiild take any uolice of the
unwise council given to the King by
the Attorney-General ; let each bear
his own whs.
Now, we come to the ital ques
tion with which the country mu-.t in
some way deal, vu. : tho refusal of
His Majesty to obey the laws as in
terpreted by our Supreme Court.
For His Majesty to urge thu near as
sembling ot tho Legislature as tin
excuse for not obeying the law, or
to lay the blame upon the Attorney
General as a scape-goat to bear
away his sin of omission is, to say
the least, a careless negligence of a
confided duty because it is revolu
tionary in its tendencies, by thus
defying the law which he lias sworn
to obey. It he had obeyed the law
and let the sin of the measure lest
on the Cabinet, his skirts would
have been clean and his act justi
fied Until by the law and the people.
Whether the Legislature will be
able to instruct the Throne in its
duty h not clear to us, but the as
sembled wisdom of tho people may
know. Oni: Viuv.
