Hep. Apiki's bill to reduce the
Noble franchise ia in effect the same
as that of Noble Phillips. If mem
bers of one way of thinking would
make a note of what each other is
doing, it would economize time and
ROADS BY CONTRACT.
Representative C. Brown believes
in roads being built by contract;
Representative Rosa is against the
contract system ; we vote vith Mr.
Brown "on this question. It is our
opinion that the contract system
would produce better roads, in less
time, and at smaller cost, 'ban the
present arrangement. Pi obably
Jlr. Rosa would concur if he were
to personally inspect the working of
the system in countries where it is
in vogue. It is the general experi
ence that private enterprises arc
more expeditiousry and economic
ally executed than similar under
takings managed by Government.
Government work is usually done
by the proverbial "Government
stroke," and although that stroke
way be cheap in the first place, it
operates so slowly that when the
time it occupies comes to be paid
for it is found to be very costly. A
contractor can pay better wages, get
more work done in a given time,
and, after realising a satisfactory
profit for himself, hand a completed
undertaking over to the Government
at less cost to the public treasury
than the Government itself could
have done it for. This is next to
universal experience. There is no
apparent reason for supposing that
our roads cannot be made at less
cost to the country by contract than
as at present. At the beginning
there might possibly be a lack of
contractors, but the adoption of the
system would undoubtedly create
them in a short time. Then the
prison labor, instead of being em
ployed on the roads as now, might
be confined to the quarry, getting
out stone for sale to the contractors.
Noble McCarthy wants passports
abolished ; so does the 3ui.i.r.-riN'.
The latter has on various occasions
advocated its wish ; the former now
presents his in the shape of a bill.
Neither Mr. McCarthy nor the Bur.
lktik wants passports abolished for
their own personal advantage, birt
primarily for the sake of a principle,
and Becondarily in response to cer
tain weighty considerations. The
principle involved is this: We boast
that Hawaii is a free country ; no
country is free jjdrere a passport
aystom obtains; tuereforo our boabt
is vain. No Americas or Britisher
can ever feel that he is in a free
country so long as he knows that Ire
is subject to a passport. A pass
port ia an abomination to a free
man who knows from experience
what a ireo country Is. Either abol
ish the passport, and make the coun
try in reality what it is irr name a
ireo country or let it bo publicly
announced abroad that it is not a
free country. Of the "weighty con
siderations" the principal one is,
that the country is depreciated by
its passport system in the estimate
formed of it abroad, even to tho ex
tent of preventing people from com
ing here. Tho writer has had recent
opportunities of satisfying himself
on thi point. Power to tho arm of
Neblo McCarthy to wipe from tho
statutes the slaviih law which pre
vents s man taking a run over to
Han Francisco and back without tho
.consent of tho Government!
) glit Is right ami wiring Is
Wrong, Irrespective of "persons,
classes, or qualifications! The na
tion whoso rulers' and legislators
are guided by this principle is for
tunate indeed. Suetonius, a gen
tleman who lived in an age which
ignorant and conceited moderns
call dark, has said, "Justice is not
to be measured out rcspetthely or
conditionally: that country only is
truly great and free wherein a
wrong done to the meanest, the
poorest, or the vilest of its subjects
is resented as a wrong done to the
We have not come to that yet,
but we appear to be nearer to it
than at the time a jury rendered a
verdict of 810,000 damages for
breech of promise, against a silver
haired old gentleman, orr the testi
mony of n woman of admitted ques
tionable reputation nearer than
vihen the just claims of a hardwork
ing mechanic for oik done accord
ing to agreement were ignored, lor
the real reason, whatever pretences
may have beGu set up, that the
aforesaid mechanic was not "in ac
cord." We nre so much near Sue
tonius's notion of justice that a com
mittee of the House virtually .says
the mechanic, John V. Bowler, has
been "wronged" and asks the As
sembly to "resent" the wrong by
mnkiug reparation to the injured
individual, which that body will
most likely do.
The "Signs of Alio times" are en
couraging, and it is to bo hoped
that we shall eventually reach the
stage when "a wrong done to the
meanest subject" in the realm,
whether he be reformer or national
reformer, will bo resented as "a
wrong done to the whole commu
nity." The lion and the lamb
browsing on the same lawn and ly
ing down together under thp shade
of the same tree at noontide, is a
glorious picture to contemplate rw a
NOT THE LION'S SHARE.
Mr. Equal Rights is again to the
front without argument. A more
contemptible and puerile composi
tion never came from the hand of
man. Exaggeration, personal abuse,
pleading, begging the question,
seems to be his only slock irr trade.
Mr. Equal Rights is like his kind,
without reason, without success,
without modesty, without charily
and good will. A man of his tem
perament u unlit to give advice to
A man like Mr. Equal Rights
should have been born earlier; he
has all the will, but happily lacks
the power, in these days, to burn
ruto cinders people for their beliefs
Mr. Equal Rights is without ar
gument, he merely hays in fact that
f-,arly closing on the part of 6aloon
keepers will diminish drinking aird
he expects the public to take that
for gospel truth merely on his word.
TJie facts are these: he knows
nothing of the subject he writes
about, and his effusions are evi
dence that he is only "putting in
time" and is carried away by flights
of his own imagination.
"Pau loa" is his style ot closing.
If he cannot do better, it is well ;
conceive him to be one too narrow
to undei stand broad principles of
right and justice, and one who has
wandered far from the meridian of
common sense and equal rights.
