An American humorist has de
scribed Mr. James Iirycc, M. P.,
author of "The American Common
wealth," as "the first Englishman
who discovered America." Mr. Bryce
has now followed up his privilege as
a discoverer of the true inwardness
of the Constitution of the United
Slates, by contributing an able paper
to the North American Review on
"The NegioPioblem." He does not
hco much hopo in the application of
forcc,sayingin this connection, "Pow
er naturally falls in a community to
the strongest, and law undei takes a
tremendous task when it attempts
not merely to protect the ordinary
civil rights of a backward race, but
actually to force the tod of authority
into their feeble grasp." Mr. Bryce
advocates an educational suffrage to
meet lii negro problem, believing
that this would bo beneficial also for
other sections than the South. "Tho
desirability of universal suffrage, for
whites," says he, "has been exalted
in America to tho rank of an
uxiomatio truth, and applied with
hasty confidence. Nothing can bo
plainer than tho mischief it is
working in those parts of the
Union which lccciye swarms of
ignorant immigrants from the most
backward populations of Europe. If
tho introduction of qualifications for
the suffrage in tho South should lead
some of tho 'Northern and Middle
Slates to reconsider the above-mentioned
dogma, and to withhold tho
means of injuring the commonwealth
from newcomers unfit to vote intelli
gently, whether tluoituh their gen
ui al political incompetence or owing
to their ignorance of the English
language and of American institu
tions, u service of no small conse
quence would have been rendered."
Mr. Emmeluth in n letter to-day
calls attention to what appears to be
mi anomaly in the building laws,
owing to there being no graduated
scale of fees for building permits
proportioned to the cost of the
buildings. Intending legislator
should take the matter into consider
ation, and, if they see it in the same
light as Mr. Emmeluth, distinguish
themselves by producing a measure
for amendment of the law in ques
tion. Hon. II. W. Wilcox lias publicly
denied tho authorship of the lately
published letters to C. C. Moreno,
Washington, D. C. Although some
things in the letteis bore a resem
blance to previously published letteis
signed by Mr. Wilcox's name and
not repudiated by him, these latest
appealing ones looked in places as if
they had been doctored considerably.
At all events Mr. Wilcox is entitled
to have his disclaimer accepted until
proof of authoiship is brought home
Ka Leo complains that the Bulle
tin is 'opposing it for its campaign
against the social evil. The caterer
for Ka Leo's English page must be
dreaming, as this paper has not had
a line on the subject. He must be
weakening on his imitation of Stead
when he winces at the torture of
inartyidoni before he feels it.
THE BUILDING LAWS.
EniToit Bulletin :
There is a law on our statute books
relatiim to fire limits and building
construction, repairs of same, etc.,
in Honolulu that will bear amending.
Tho section relating to issuing per
mits under the act provides for the
payment of tlie sum of live dollais
for each pei mit granted, no matter
how small or large the proposed
structure may be. To illustrate, a
poor man must pay the same fee for
permission lo erect his simple cottage
of one or two rooms as was paid for
peimits to put up the Biewer, Cum
mins and Robinson blocks during the
One pcion paid the sum of five
dollars for a permit to do some alter
ations, the total cost of which will
not be twenty dollars. There is a
manifest injustice in this, as the ex
amination of plans and specifications
on a building like the Brewerblock is
not properly recompensed by the
amount of the fee, while it is an out
rage to chaigc a mau five dollars for
a permit lo put up a simple cottage,
the plans of which are roughly
sketched on a piece of note paper.
Piovision for Government supervi
sion of building constiuction within
the area prescribed does not imply a
right to bin den the building with the
payment of excessive fees. Jn other
countries the piaclicc is different.
In several of the United States the
law relating to this matter requires
Iho payment of one dollar for permit
lo put up a now house glOOO or less
in value, and 50 cents for each addi
tional $1000 of cost of structure.
This applied to the cases cited would
be for the Brewer block say 12.30
and for a cottage of two rooms SI,
which seems lo me a more just ar
rangement than the present law.
While wiiting on the subject I
would like to inquire of the Fire
Marshal whether tho conugated iron
building recently constructed on
Hotel street adjoining the Robinson
block was erected according to the
original plana submitted in applica
tion for permit, and whether its con
struction conforms to the law refuting
to buildings erected within the (iie
limilB. Jqjin Emmi:luih.
