I'lrdped to iitilhty Sut nor Itrtyt
lint ttablihtd for the brn(fit of all.
FRIDAY, .H'.N'K 13, 1890.
One of the principal iouieea of
money supply for the small trade
of Honolulu is the Railway Con
struction Company. Merely the
weekly cash disbursements of the
company for wages to mechanic
aud laborers amount to three thou
sand dollars. Most of this goes
Into immediate circulation among
grocers, drygoodsmen, restaurant
keepers, and others who cater for
public demands. The removal of a
money source so proltGo would have
an effect immediately detrimental to
WHAT IS PROPER TO DO?
After twice reading our morning
contemporary's special pleading in
defence of the Cabinet majority,
about nil we can discover is "apeeinl
pleading." If the dirty-linen-waah-ing
exhibition, of which the commu
nity and the outside world have
been 'spectators, i pleasing to the
Advertiser, it fa not ao to the Bcl
u.tin. Merely a matter of tustc,
and as taste ate not regulated by
legislative enactment they arc
bound to differ. Our neighbor is
entertained by two Mitiis-ters pitch
ing mud at each other at Govern
ment house; wc would prefer that
iln-y go privately to the top of
l'unchbowl and light it nut between
theinoelvc:. It is not at all conge
nial to our peculiar liistii to have
these two Ministers fighting in pub
lic, to the impediment of the public
business and the detriment of the
country. As to the truth being
made manifest by the controversy,
we have no reason to expect thia
result. When the squabble comes
to an end, opinions will still be di
vided. Men will believe tnat the
Minister of Interior is light, and
men will believe that the Attorney
General fa right. Respecting the
credibility ot the two sides, inun
equally competent to reach rational
nmclusionfi will lake opposite views,
and be "candid men" at the same
time. We say again, that this Cab
inet tight is not only discreditable,
but it has been destructive of public
confidence, which confidence is not
likely to be restored. In such easo
what is the proper thing for tlwic
concerned to dor
A REST DESIRED.
A rather stale subject fa the glori
fication 0 the present Minister of
the Interior for the public improve
ments made under his administra
tion of that Department. The Ad
vertiser lias another twang at that
much-woin string this morning.
That Mr. Thur.ston has attended
"trietly to the business of his ollicc
is not denied. Neither is it tpieu
tioned that the revenues at the dis
posal ot ids Depaitmcnt have in the
main been expended for the benefit
of the public. And it may al-o be
truly said that the Minister has
been energetic in forwarding public
works. When all this i3 said, how
ever, the case is not established that
Mr. Thuiston is entitled to the ex
travagant laudations often henid of
him. Under circumstances differ
ent from lhoje that surrounded his
entrance into the Executive, his re
cord would perhaps sustain all the
euloglunis that could reasonably be
heaped on it. Had the adienl of
the l'efottn Government been a nor
mal change of ruler brought about
by an electoral content, had it been
the triumph of persona! ability on
the part of political leaders, had it
been solely the defeat at the polls
of a partj1 that had equal scope and
opportunity for governing well a
its successful rival, there mighbtnut
be justification for a word of detrac
tion from the statesmanlike virtue
now ahcnbcd to the Administration
on the strength of effected improve
ments. Hut take all the facts into
consideration. The Reform Minis
try is the first one in the history of
this country which has had the
liberty to do what deemed right, to
it. Vengeance was wreaked by an
angry populace on its predecessor
for misgovcrnment that was in large
part due to a system under which no
Cabinet could do Justice to itself or
the country. Tho same agency sup
plied a new system. Thus tho He
form Cabinet wns furnished at once
with equipments, self-suited to its
hands, to do well, and with a terri
ble example to warn it again&t do
ing ill. As Mr. Phillips .said in un
plection speech, the Reform Govern
I iaif nn yywy tu
ment was not placed in power to
build any more Kaitniloas, or to
send an' more embassies on vision
ary missions to the South Sea-.
The beat criterion by which to
judge the Minister of the Interior or
any other Minister is to compare
himself with himself in the different
stages of opposition and power.
When Mr. Thurston was a member
of the former Opposition in the
Legislature he took a veiy decided
stand on ctrtain principles. He re
lucd to concede to Ministers tho
right to exercise any discretion in
the expeuditu! e of revenue. When
ever a Minister asked for "incident
als" for his- Department and, having
them objected to as being excessive,
put forth the plea that they might
all be needed and "if not needed
would not be spent," it was, to use
Minister Thurston's favorite simile,
like the "shaking of a red lag at a
bull" to that gentleman. With what
a virtuous fervor he used to spring
to his feet and declaim against the
utter vieiousness of granting a Min
ister funds without knowing where
every cent was to gol How is it
now? A moiety of the last Appro
pi iation Bill is composed of items
the expenditure of which is discre
tionary with the Ministry.
Another thing that used to be one
of the chief rocks of offense to the
Opposition was the misapplication
of appropriations. Now we have
the Auditor-General to witness that
this fa one ot the besetting sins of
the Minister of the Interior. Not
only is this to in the straining of
technical points to justify certain
transfers of apptopriatiotip, but,
there is peculiar llagraney in the
violence of hands with which money
Is drawn from the treasury. For
instance, the abstraction of a sataiy
for an olllcial that does not exist,
namely, a Deputy Hnpeiiiilendent of
J'uhlic Woiks. Even where money
has been spent in uccoidan.t with
the Appropriation Act, its expendi
ture has not always been such as to
retleet bistro on the administration
of the Inteiiur. Divergences from
the contract to the job system
through false economy have made
servicer, dearer than the regular
course would have made them. In
competency of subordinates kept in
place tluough personal and partisan
favor has pioduccd wild estimates
and inefficient, consequently waste
ful woik. Jiy the same favor there
is abo reason to believe a good deal
of downright stealing has resulted
and its authors been screened from
exposure and punishment.
All these things must contribute
to a feeling of tiredness on the patl
of the public at the nauseous repeti
tion of fulsome commendations of
Mr. Thurston as "the grand young
man" and "the only Minister of the
Interior" w 01 thy of the name that
ha ever been given to the kingdom.

Mr. Lawieneo Uond, Hawaiian

Grubo Marcliunt: "Mr. Maiehtuit
has for the few months past been nt
woik in the ollicc of Messrs. Dunbar
and Cliapin of 74 Ficmont St., Hoi
ton, where he is gaining excellent
training in mercantile work, paynu:
no tuition, but leeeiving a s'nmll
stipend which goes to reduce the
amount necessary from the Govern

ninth profit in his nrt from las train,
iug in that olllee that J. have not yet
put him into the photographic iu

study of photography should bo

"The young man has just complet
ed his winter's course in the Public
Drawing School of the City of IUm

fi'eely and cheerfully admitted him
ever since his arrival in Boston. As
I have written before, ho i3 very
fiiithlul, full of enthusiasm for his
art, indtisliious and frugal, and his
whole course since coming here is a
credit to him, and a source of pride
to all interested in Jf the
Government can see its way to con
