0. N. SPEND EH,
Minister of the Interior.
Interior OHico, March 2U, 1892.
SATURDAY, MARCH 26, 1892.
In reference to a paragioph that
appeared in this journal about glan
ders in California, Dr. W. T. Mon
sarrat, Government Veterinarian,
slates that he has been oflicially
advised from that country of the pre
valence of the malady, and every
precaution is being taken to prevent
its introduction into this kingdom.
The first case of a vacancy in the
elective Road Boards has occurred.
It ia provided in the law that a
vacancy by death or resignation shall
bo filled by tho Minister of the Inte
rior for the unexpired terip of otlice,
Win, Henry having resigned, after
less than two mouths' service, from
tlio Koolaupoko Hoard, tho Minister
lias appointed E. P. Aikue in his
stead, the unexpired term being 22
months in this case.
Among the latest items that went
into our columni yusterday was one
nbotit the election case which was
not worded in the bust way to convoy
the intended meaning. Mr. Justice
IMcUtIoii, who heard the case, 1ms
been occupied with other Judicial
business daily since the hearing
deed, and beside the transcribing
of the testimony is not yet com
pleted. Any impieision that there
is any delay, or undue delihoiation,
in the mutter is eironcous. A deci
sion should not be expected in a
hutry, in so inipoitant ami somewhat
complicated a case.
THE LABOR PROBLEM.
The planters insist on it that a
supply of cheaper Held labor is a
necessity of the present situation.
Thcie seems to have been a complete
breakdown of the scheme for procur
ing Chinese labor enacted at last
session of the Legislature. This is
due to the restriction clauses, that
seem to be unworkable. Restriction
of new-coming Chinese from oilier
than Held labor is, however, the
established policy of this country,
and has been so under several admin
istrations. It has been in every
election platform since parly organ
ization became a feature of our elec
tions. There does not seem to be
any hope in measurably near pros
pect of superscdiim the present labor
system of the country by anything
better, at least on a general scale. So,
granting that cheaper labor than that
now available, is a necessity foi the
retention of even a modicum of the
prosperity liitheito enjoyed thiough
the sug.ir industry, the whole ques
tion will have to be taken up anew
by the coming session of the Legis
lature. If Chinese are an essential
element in the required supply, then
the Solons will find it incumbent
upon them to devise measures, where
by (1st) a certain proportion of them
may be admitted, and (-dl.v) the
mercantile and mechanical interests
of the country may he protected
against the competition, which other
wise would be inevitable and power
ful, of Chinese who would only use
employment in the fields as a step
ping stone to more agreeable occupa
tion in the towns and villages. These
ends are hard to harmonize and make
feasible together, as wearisome ex
perience has proved. It is indeed a
question whether the consummation
impossible by statutory legislation.
One piece of legislation is cut out
for the session, having aheady pass
ed one stage. That is, the constitu
tional amendment empowering the
Legislature to make laws for over
coming the dilliculties hitherto insur
mountable, owing to the "clashing of
such laws with the absolute piohibi
tion of class legislation now in the
Constitution. This amendment tloes
not touch the rights of any Chinese
who may be in the country when laws
such as those permitted therein shall
first have been passed. Whether
workable laws can be framed under
the enlarged powers proposed will
remain to be seen. All that can
now be said is that the amendment
seems to -lie what was lequhed in or
der to get over some of the most
serious obstacles to the passage of
lawb more effective than those which
have heretofoie been found compati
ble with the Constitution. There
fore, although the amendment comes
short of what has been desired, as
will be shown just now, it seems to
be necessary to have it passed before
any specific legislation under it is
The deficiency in the amendment
is its want of provision for the regis
tration of the Chinese laboring
classes in the country before the
passage of the laws therein author
ized. It allows of the passage of
"laws for the supervision, control and
identification of nil persons or any
one class or nationality who may be
intioduccd into the kingdom for the
purpose of performing agricultural
labor;" also laws to "restrict and
limit the term of residence in
the kingdom of such agricul
tural laborers and the business or
employment in which they may
engage." To maintain control or
keep truck of the identity of thou
sands of Chinamen, coming in under
the provisions of such laws, without
first having providetl means of iden
tifying the Chinamen who, by prolr
resilience, aie exempted from the
same laws, would indeed be u dilll
cult tusk. The means now employed
foi identifying the holders of return
permits bus been effective, and its
adoption for identifying claimants to
exemption from the proposed Iiiwb
ought to be equally effective. Per
haps this can he secured without new
constitutional provisions. If not, it
will be very difllcult to dovibe avail,
ing legislation of the kind required.
At all ovents, the pending amend
ment is the only constitutional relief
that can bo procured without two
years' further delay, und its passage
should be the first ucl of the session
FROM THE TRAMWAYS MANAOER.
, lu last night's issue you had nn
article commenting on the want of
room on the second last car for Tues
day's concert. 1 would mention the
concert was ndvcitiscd to take place
at 8 p. m. and I concluded and made
arrangements for nn extra car to go
down in tlnio for tho concert, viz,,
to arrive at the Hotel at 7:15, whioh
would be n quarter of an hour before
limo, instead of which the bulk of
the people seem to have gone down
at 7:25, word being brought in that
the people had all gone down on this
car. I would mention that the car
preceding the one in question only
carried 20 people and the one follow
ing !50. Hud 1 known the people
were going down on the 7:25 provi
sion could liuvo been made for them,
bull naturally concluded 15 minutes
before time would have been the
time al which most people were go
ing down. Now a large car was sent
down expecting a load coining home.
After I he inon waitetl about witli the
car for over an hour, it came home
in company with another car, the
two of them only getting 3." passen
gers. The extra large car only got
IS), which including tlio lime taken
going anil coining was a little more
than enough to pay the men's wages,
to 8U3' nothing of wear and tear and
teed for the animals.

Honolulu, March 25, 1892.
MR. BUSK AND PROHIBITION.
1 wonder whether or no, Mr. ,J. E.
Bush knew what he was about, when
in his editorial favoring prohibition in
Iva Loo of March 17 he said: "None
bill those who are personally interest
ed in the business ( Jicaning the liquor
business) undertake to argue to the
contrary." Is it possible that Mr.
Bush is not aware of the fact, that
the ciiiuc of piohibilion is forced into
its last ditch by the united forces ol
Uncle bam ; or did he mean to crack
a joke al the expense of the liquor
dealers hero, in order to tickle the
fancy of a sect, who are continually
warbling the names Bush and Wil
cox, with (ontempt? Remember
this, oil ye hypocrites: "When tem
perance triumphs, it will be through
the Gospel of Jesus Cluist, and in
accoid with the teachings of the
Bible. Not through legalism and
perveision of Divine truth."
ANSWER TO "REPUGLICAN."
This country is under a monarchi
cal form of government, and, while
all peaceable and friendly discussion i
is allowable, the active stirring up
of people to levoll by unscrupulous
ollice-seekers and llic consequent
probable danger to the lives and
properly of the community through
their iulluence over unthinking und
icckless people, are causes which
may requite the people of the soil,
if the Government tlo not take steps
to prevent the danger, to form a
committee to secure peace, safety
and freedom from violent changes by
agitators. Until "Republican" signs
his name I can have no further con
troversy with him. C. BuuNinr.
G. Gloger, Druggist, Watertown,
Wis. This is the opinion of a man
who keeps a drug store, sells all
medicines, comes in tlirect contact
with the patients and their families,
and knows better than anyone else
how remedies sell, and what true
merit they have. He hears of all
the failures and successes, and can
therefore judge: "I know of no
medicine for Coughs, Sore Throat,
or Hoarseness that had done such ef
fective work in my
Coughs, family as Boschee's
Sore Throat, Gcnuan Syrup. Last
winter a lady called
Hoarseness, at my store, who was
suffering from a very
severe cold. She could hardly talk,
and I told her about Geraiau Syrup
and that a few doses would give re
lief; but she had no confidence in
patent medicines. I told her to take
a bottle, and if the results were not
satisfactory I would make no charge
for it. A few days after she called
and paid for it, saying that she
would never be without it in future as
a few doses'had given her relief." (D
