Mr. Smith, whose letter appears
in this issue, makes out a case for
the former Government whieh reads
well, and ma' be entirely satisfact
ory to those who think the same
way; but llicrc is another side,
which if candidly reviewed from an
impartial standpoint must, at least,
modify the conclusions of an un
prejudiced mind. Anyhow, our
esteemed correspondent simply
evades the issue raised by us, and
never once comes within a mile of it.

A writer signing himself "Eng
lish Catholic" in Saturday morning's
Elele, makes out what he seems to
think a strong case in favor of reli
gious education in schools. None
of the arguments used are new, and
they are good only so far as the
theories they are put forward to
support are backed by experi
ence, observation and history.
Now what do we obtain from an
appeal to this tribunal? We learn
that in every community in Christ
endom the education of the people,
both intellectually and morally is
in inverse ratio to the quantity jA
religion taught under the direction
of ecclesiastical authorities in the
public schools. The education of
Italy, Spain, Quebec, Mexico and
other countries has been as fully
impregnated with religious instruc
tion as the most pious "English
Catholic" could desire, and the
result is that the people of those
countries are conspicuous for their
backwardness in educational deve
lopment. In Germany, Great Bri
tain and America, education lias
reached a very high slate of elli
ciency, but the schools are not in
ecclesiastical leading strings. To
bring the argument home to our
selves, in this polyglot country,
which of all the nationalities 'domi
ciled here, is illiterate as a body?
Only those of our fellow citizens
whose schools in the homo land aro
as religious as the ecclesiastics
choose to make them. Now the
Government of the Hawaiian Isl
ands has been putting forth a pater
nal hand to educate our Portuguese
fellow citizens in conformity with
the ideas and principles of enlight
ened civilization, and it is very in
judicious if not ungrateful on the
part of the Klelc correspondent as
well as many others with him, to be
raising a hue and cry for the pur
pose of relegating the education of
uny portion of the people to eccle
Let the ministers of religion so

schoolmaster's desk, it looks too
much like writing certificates of
their own incapacity.

DECISION IH AN IMPORTANT
Itcroro tlio ItNtrlrt mill Poller .Jhm.
tlcc of Honolulu.
Hex vs. Wy Nam.
The defendant is charged with
selling illl tins of opium to Qnni
Tong, in Honolulu, on Tuesday, filli
August, 1800. The charge is ninth.1,
and prosecution has been conducted,
by members of a committee appoint
ed by the Legislature to Investigate
Iho trntllc in opium.
One thiug is certain: that after 1
o'clock on that Tuesday afternoon,
Quai Tong left the house of AUnna
at Palama, to buy opium for Mr.
Nawahi, n member of the above
named committee, and returned to
Akana's shortly before 3 o'clock
with the US) tins. Everything else
in the case is disputed.
Quai Tong says that at 10 or 15
minutes after half-past two, he went
into defendant's More, looking at
the clock an he went in, and was in the
store ten minutes: nobody was in
the store but defendant and the
witness: the witness had never been
in the store before, but had met de
fendant on the street a few days
previously, and asked him if ho had
opium to sell, when witness went in
the store, defendant brought out the
ti'J tins of opium, wrnpped up in
four packages and placed in a rice
bag: witness paid defendant 253. 50
and went out the front door to Hotel
street with the hag on his shoulder..
Two Ilawaiians testify (hat on that
afternoon they saw -uai Tong com
ing out of defendant's More with a
bag mi his shoulder; but they vaiy
as to the time when they saw this
and from their evidence it appears
to ine that whatever they saw could
not have been later than 2 o'clock ;
and their identification of Quai Tong
is far from satisfactory or conclu
sive. Midi, a police oflicer, says that
at 2 o'clock he went iuto defendant's
store to get a match: saw Quai
Tong. before witness went in, talk
ing to defendant in the front of the
store: when witness entered, Quai
Tong was sitting in the front store
with four other Chinese, and defend
ant was in the inner room: witness
had never seen Quai Tong before or
This is the evidence for the pro
secution: and it is plainly contra
dictory, so much so, that if the
testimony of any one of the wit
nesses is true, all the other witnesses
must be mistaken.
A nuinhcr of Chinese witnesses,
for the defense, testify that on that
Tuesday there' were at least, two
employees in defendant's store all
day: and that defendant was not
there at all from 10 a. in. to 1?:30
p. m. but was across the btreet at
Hang Lung Kee's during all that
It seems to me unlikely that in a
store like defendant's he would bo
left alone to attend to customers:
and it also appears to me that the
uhbi proved by the defense is loo
elaborate to be false: it would not.
be necessary to have defendant
away irom ins store so long, unless
it were true.
In rebuttal of the nWi the prose
cution bring a Hawaiian hand-cart
man who say3 he saw defendant
leave his store soon after 1 o'clock
on that Tuesday, cross the street to
the opposite store, and shoitly come
back to his own store : but the wit
ness says he sees defendant going in
and out of his store every day, and
that his attention was not called to
what he had seen till the following
Evidence is also offered that two
Chinese ir.erchants. who say they
were talking business with defend
an1, at Hang Lung Kee's at the time
when Quai Tong says that defend
ant sold him the opium, made a dif
ferent statement when they were
summoned before the Legislative
committee in the evening, after the
sale: but they were brought before
the committee after defendant had
stated that he was with them from
10 to 3 that day, the questions were
put to them in English by Hawaiian
members of the committee, they re
plied in English, their testimony
was recorded by Chas. Wilcox, a
Hawaiian; and Chung Tung, a half
Chinese, was told in Hawaiian, by
one of the committee, to repeat to
them in Chinese the questions al
ready asked: and the interpreter
said that the witnesses said that
what they had already testified to
was true. The evidence is conflict
ing as to what questions were really
put to these witnesses nnd what re
plies they made: and it is evident
that in the use of the different lan
guages and tho nubility of each of
the persons present to understand
the others beyond a cortnin extent,
a very serious doubt arises as to
whether whut the witnesses said or
intended to say was properly con
voyed to the committee: but if Wy
Nam, before he had much time to
concoct much of a defense, told the
same story then that he does now,
it seems reasonable to supposo that
tho men ho relied on to substantiate
him would not have deliberately
contradicted him then, and after
wards told an exactly opposite story
at the trial.
But even if the evidence of tho
committee casts a suspicion upon
tho defendant's alibi, it only adds
another uncertainty to a wise al
ready full of conilicling evidence:
and the only thing for final consider
ation is, has the prosecution made
out a case against tho defendant be
yond a reasonable doubt.
The Legislative committee de
serve credit for their offorts to throw
light on tho illicit trnfflc in opium:
nnd the gentleman who has con
ducted Iho prosecution has made
the best of his case; no one could
havu made more of it, and to that
extent 1 regret that, I cannot sup
plement the work of the committee,
and assist in the solution of the very
serious problem presuiiled by tliu
opium question, by a conviction in
the piesont ease.
But lite defendant ban rights
which I iiui'jl, not disregard. The
only evidence ngulnit him U that
of the man nho hooyht the opium,
whieh is in qome respect- improba
ble, and would need strong confirm
ation under any clrcumttaueea ; it
ta continued only by Hie evidence
ot four llawaihius, whose testimony
was sought some days after the
sale, who say that at a certain time
on a certain day they saw Quai
Tong coming out of defendant's
store with a bag on his shoulder, or
saw the defendant in or near his
store at a time when he bays he was
across the street at, ll.ing I.ung
Each of the witnesses for the
prosecution contradict all the
others, and most of the testimony
is open to the very grave suspicion,
not necessarily that the witnesses
have deliberately lied, but thaUhey
have allowed their zeal in assisting
the committee U outweigh their
memory of what actually happened.
It. seems to me absolutely essen
tial for the committee, when they
sent Quai Tong to buy opium, to
have had reliable witnesses posted
at the placr when1 tie was to buy ii,
who should have seen him cuter the
islorc without any opium and leave
the stoie with the opium: and that
those witnesses should also, on
some pretext, have immediately as
cuitaiucd who was in the store, even
if it were impossible for any of
them to have witnessed the actual
sale. In such a case, it would not
have been ditlleult to obtain a con
viction. In the present case 1 must
find that the prosecution lias failed
to prove the defendant guilty be
yond a iraonalilo doubt: lie ii,
therefore, found not guilty and dis
charged. W. Kostlt:,
