As the newspapers have quit an
nouncing "the day and the hour"
for that vote of want of confidence,
it is now likely to happen at any
time; prophetic events seldom if
ever transpire until there is assur
ance that all prophecies concerning
them have failed.
Mrs. Harriet Kauhi Wond has
communicated to this paper a "card
of thanks," for which space will not
admit publication in full. She en
thusiastically acknowledges the
benefits received by her as a patient
at the "Kapiolani Maternity Home."
The thorough comforts provided,
and the gentle and skilful attend
ance received, are warmly praised
by the beneficiary. Mrs. Wond
urges Hawaiian women to take ad
vantage of the boon presented in
this humane institution. She is sure
that one experience will remove for
ever nil timidity about entering the
wards on the part of any of her
The pathetic manner in which the
spoilsmen's organ of this morning
declares itself to be beyond a safe
political depth and in danger of be
ing swamped by iuown indiscretion,
will be seen at a glance by any who
lake the trouble t glance at that
Within forty-eight hours it has
impeached the "whole administra
tion" and Minister Spencer itbpu
dully, for various alleged present or
contcniplntcd misdoings, Tlih morn

does not fall into linn with the spoils
men of '87, ho will ho speedily

consequently "go out of oflicc with
n badly bedragged reputation," etc.
These editorial inconsistencies
tuny be interpreted by nn indulgent
public ti9 pointing out a congenital
delect, ami hence demanding char
ity ; or as the usual political jumble
accompanying an effete' and unpo
pular raue, demanding daily infla
tion to keep it before the public
The spoilsmen of "87, thuuinli
their organ, arc piotesting so v
hetnently and persistently that they
are wholly disinterested patriots,
holding other upon merit solely and
in the exclusive Interest of "good
government," that there is a grow
ing public suspicion. This suspic
ion takes the form of a doubt as
to whether the spoilsmen of '87 and
their organ are patriotH as claimed or
"boodlers" as the facts point out.
Dr. Tucker is held up as the Re
form Party martyr and Minister
Spencer as the veritable political
Bluebeard. People generally, per
haps, are quite indifferent as to the
ultimate political fate of either the
spoilsmen or '87 or their martyi ;
and as far a9 the Ministerial Blue
beard is concerned he will probably
console himself with the editorial
spoilsman's lale advice to the King's
Chamberlain, viz.: "A reputation
which is not superior to such at
tacks, can hardly be worth preserv
ing." A majority of electors of Hono
lulu, however, are justified in ob
jecting to the utterances of the edi
torial spoilsman of '87, when he al
lows, his passion and "boodler" pro
pensities to carry him the length
of declaring, "Not only the cause
of decent government, but of hu
manity and progress, require that the
Superintendent of the Asylum should
be retained in office." The fact is
generally admitted, we believe, that
neither the cause of decent govern
ment nor of humanity and progress
were in any way disturbed when the
chief spoilsman of '87 (who by the
way conveniently forgot the riflemen
in the distribution) was removed
from his ministerial pedestal a few
months ago by popular demand.
THE OPIUM SCANDAL.
ItMort of the Juillclnry Committer
To the Hon. John S. Walkeii, Pre
sident of the Legislature.
Sir, Your judiciary committee, to
whom was referred tho matter of con
tinuing the investigation of the
opium beandul, detiro to report that
they have had the matter under care
ful consideiation, and in their ellorU
to throw more light upon this, sub
ject members of your committee have
acted us detectives, going i-o far as to
actually s-eize 39 tins of opium sup
posed to have come fiom the Ciittom
House, but foil Mioit of Millicicnt
In their detective woik members
of your committee have come across
various signs showing that almost
every house, room, or hut occupied
by Chinamen contains more or let
opium, which can only come into
this country firbt through luck of
sufficient Custom House guards or
inefficiency of the same, and, sec
ondly, as the sequel of the F. T.
opium proves it to be a fact, the cor
ruption and dishonesty f some ot
our Custom House officials.
In their investigations your com
mittee have availed themselves of the
evidence taken by the former com
mittee, and have found the following
That the Kahului opium was in
the Station House from June 17th of
18S9 to April 1st of this year, a pe
riod of nine months und two weeks,
and waa at the Custom House from
April let to May JOth, when the said
boxes of Kahului opium were found
to contain bricks ;
That tho Oceanic or F. T. opium
was seized and placed in the Custom
House on the 2d and Urd days of
April and on the lllh of May found
to contain dirt, excepting about 00
Fiom the testimony of Mr. A. P.
Peterson, tho present Attorney-General,
we find thai the 29S tins of Ka
hului opium weie, in his presence,
packed into two smooth-planed pino
or nor' west lumber hoxtib, the covers
nailed on, and tho address of the
Murdhal marked on the boxes with a
brush. This your committee- believe
took place at thn Wuiluku Court
hoitKO. They were taken to Kahului
and fiom thero shipped to the city of
Honolulu on tlio steamer Likellko,
From tho books, of Wildor's Strum
bhip Company your coniniitee found
there had been idiipprd on the Like

I'lituinUti'c, we find I lint on October
7th if 1889. Hie Custom Hoii-e au
thorities oldered that nil opium in
p.vM!.iou of the Uuwrntuciit be
tukvii io the Cu-toin House to be
sold, as there n a Chinaman v. roll
ing to buy and rnprnt all the opium
Mr. Turiill tewlifled to your judi
ei.ny coiiunittee that he went to the
Station llou'f, stated the order, and
tool; all the opium then in the pos
sesion oi custody of tin Maislml,
excepting a tew tins of adulterated
and woitldess opium, to the Custom
House. Mr. Tunill fuither stated to
your committee that the Kahului
opium a not nt the Station House
then, but was still held at Wuiluku
by the f-hcriil of Maui a evidence.
Your committee "Ko found that
Mr. Tnrrill often culled at the Station
House foi opium, taking it away in a
valise, and other pnities have theie
bought opium and causi d it to be
tiansfenod into boxes other than the
Pnor to the delivery of the Kahu
lui opium at the Custom Hou-e, Mr.
heldon. the officer who made the
seizure, inquired of the .Marshal what
hd become of it. Tlio Maishal told
him he did not know. Ho went to
the Customs authorities and after
much correspondence Mr. Dojidman
found that the opium had been deliv
ered to the Marshal as above stated
by your committee.
Your committee found that on
March 2th or 2Gth of this year the
Marshal iiskrd Mr. lloardman. to re
move the Kahului opium to the Cus
tom House. That on April 1st Mr.
Turrill called for it. and to him the
Marshal delivered the Kahului and
other opiums. Mr. Tunill stated
that the Kahului opium was then in
dingy redwood boxes, and one of them
marked with Mr. Soper's name. Va
lia, one of the prisoners who lifted
these bote-, into the expic-s wagon,
positively asserts that they were red
wood, even identifiing the box now
here in the Legislative Hall as one
of them. K.ilolo, the other prisoner,
stated, amid a confusion of positive
and negative assertions, that they
weie white boxes. Put little credit
could be given his memory of the
transaction, as he could not remem
ber the driver nor tell the month or
year it happened. Mr. E. Hopkins,
who aided in carrying away these
boxes, could not swear whether they
were red or white. Manuel Gomez,
the expicss driver, testified ho did
not notice the coloi of the boxes, but.
when first asked by Mr. Larsen said
they were redwood boxes.
Another fact that has engaged the
attention of your committee was a
number of red .wooden boxes that
weie at the Station House about this
time of the opium scandal, of the
same dimensions and make as the
one here. According to the testi
mony of Mr. La u Chong some of
these boxes weie abandoned by him
at tho Station House because opium
had leaked in them. The abandoned
boxes were at the Station House at
one time, but have disappeaicd since.
Now, one of these boxes claimed to
contain the Kahului opium had
opium stains on it. It stained the
haiidn of Valin while lifting it into
the oxpioss it stained the baggage
express wagon, and attracted Man
uel Gomez's attention : it stained the
hands of Naapuwai while lifting it
into the Collector's office, and stain
ed the matting of the Collector-General
's office, for which ho caused
them the boxe.- to be removed into
the next room. One of these red
wood boxes containing the bricks
and straw hnd opium stains on the
When Mr. Naapuwai carried the
opium-stained box upstaiis ut the
Custom House, he expressed aston
ishment at the unusual weight of an
opium box of that sie.
Your committee is thetcfore satis
lied that the Kahului opium reached
the; Station House in white boxes;
that the boxes tent from the Station
House to the Custom House were of
redwood; that one of them had
opium stains; and that something
Heavier than opium, namely, bucks,
were in them when they left tho Sta
tion House. Thorefoie your com
mittee would iccommeud that Mr.
John 11. Soper be censured by tho
House fur II. e loss of the Kahului
opium. Wm. White,
