Harper's Weekly, which was- for
Cleveland from the first, lias come
round to argue that the Democratic
party is not to be trusted, even if Its
nominal leader were an angel. It
holds that the tariff question is one
of those great subjects always with
the nation, which do not require to
be made a leading issue in every
national contest. Honest money and
pure government would seem to be
the issues the Weekly would have for
this presidential year.
It was understood Monday that
the conductors of the Advertiser
would keep out of Tuesday's paper
all mention of certain precautions
the authorities had taken against an
outbreak of which they had received
. authentic forewarning. For the good
name and credit of the country
abroad the Bulm:tix management
engaged to observe the silence that
the Advertiser promised. This paper
kept strictly to the arrangement. The
Advertiser flippantly and offensively
violated it. Not that the newspapers
should suppicss common intelligence
to deceive the outside world, but,
while it was yet impossible to get to
the bottom of the apprehended trou
ble, there was danger that any ac
count published would be greatly ex
aggerated abroad. What makes the
Advertiser's dishonorable breach of
its pledge the worse, is the fact that
the first request for silence came from
gentlemen intimately connected, both
in blood and business relations, with
the owners and conductors of the
Advertiser. Messrs. Atherton, Cooke
and Dillingham were particularly an
xious to have the news in question
withheld, as they were going away
on yesterday's steamer in quest of
capital for their large enterprises.
One of these gentlemen assured the
Bulletin that the Advertiser would
say nothing about the precautionary
measures taken by the authorities if
this paper would make a similar en
gagement. Messrs. Atherton, Cooke, Dilling
ham and Thurston left in the same
steamer, all witli schemes for the
benefit of this country to promote
abroad. Tliej' will find on arrival
over that their first dilllculty will be
the counteracting of the impression
produced by the Advertiser's fantas
tic attempt af giving the "news."
More especially will this be the case,
because the impression is a false
one. That paper intimated while
making a show of denying that there
was some disturbance apprehended
here, and at the same time made uncalled-for
insinuations of incapacity
on the part of the authorities to deal
with any trouble. Its course in tins
matter adds to the conviction forced
on intelligent readers of the papers
for some months past, that it will
stoop to any dishonorable means of
getting a slap at the Marshal. Had
the community been surprised Mon
day morning, as on the 30th of July,
1889, by the occupation of the Pa
lace and Government building by a
gang of conspirators, the Advertiser
would havo, with ghouliBli glee,
jumped on the Marshal and tho Min
istry with denunciations for their
neglect of warnings.
This morning the Advertiser got
out a "sandbag" edition, containing
scarcely anything, in addition to news
copied from the Bulletin, but silly
editorial and news articles on what it
calls "the sandbag revolution."
These compositions arc intended to
discount Mark Twain in extravagant
humor, but such treatment of a seri
bu3 subject cau only arouse disgust in
the minds of right-thinking readers.
They display beneath, the outface,
with all their assumed merriment, a
malignant animosity toward tho
powers that be which could scarcely
be exceeded by the most violent
anarchist. The articles create the
impression, indeed, that the Adver
tiser, which is avowedly annexationist
without being able to give sound rea
sons for desiring annexation at this
juncture, is as much annoyed and
discomposed as are the International
League republicans because the
authorities have not been caught nap
ping on tliis occasion. And what is
nil the inane jollity of our contem
porary about? Simply the appear
ance Monday morning of a few bags
of sand in front of the Palace. The
Household Guards have been more
elllcienlly drilled of late than ever
before. Owing to authentic inform
ation that the republican agitators
were liable to spring an attempt nt
overthrowing the government any
day, the Guards were subjected to
special drill tho night before Monday.
Part of the drill was the filling and
piling of sand bags for breastworks,
and when this wns over the men were
so tired thai the commanding olllcer
did not require them to remove all of
the bags. This drill was all right
and valuable; but it would have
pleased tho Advertiser belter, if held
by the Internationals after gaining
occupation of the Palace.
The injury liable to accrue to tho
country from such articles as the
Advertiser's can hardly be calcu
lated. They arc designed to bring
the government and the resources at
its command for preserving peace
into contempt. For life measures
taken to balk the nefarious designs
of a parcel of adventurers the autho
rities deserve the gratitude of every
man who has a stake in the country,
instead of the slanderous contumely
dribbled upon them from the pens of
annexationists who are willing to
have their own ends brought about
through channels of disturbance and
outrage. Had these vililiers of tho
powers that give themselves protec
tion a grain of coinmonsonse, they
would realize thai trom their own
standpoint the last thing to be desired
is to have the present order over
turned by a band of freebooters.
What certificate could Hawaii give
the United States of good behavior
as a member of the Union, if she
hold out her hands to the great Ke
public fouled with riot and perhaps
red with bloodshed? The only end
of success to such a movement as
seemingly has the sympathy of the
Advertiser would be the country
ruled by a blase !?cion of European
nobility under a tieuty between the
Powers a government such as that
with which the people of Samoa aic
Concerts and shows for the amuse
ment of the public are regularly tak

Kawaiahao Church, which seem to
indicate that the pastor and elders
have no higher aim than money grab
bing', and if the contribution box
does not make fair returns the ap
pearances indicate that they willingly
license the admittance of shows
which should be more fittingly dis
played in a theatre, perhaps for the
sake of charity, but practically for
the sake of obtaining a few more
Last Sunday the devout congrega
tion had to be content with looking

authorities thought it was all fit and
proper that the scaffolding used by
tho concert singers of the previous
night should remain as an advertise
ment to attract the attention of such
a visitor as Admiral Brown.
In addition to the shows that have
already entertained the public with
in the sacred edifice, I note that the
Scottish Thistle (JI ub is advertising
one to come off on the 2d of April.
Now for decency's sake, Mr. Editor,
I would advise them to use some
other building. If they think a
church is the most proper place for
such entertainments, then let them
use tho church of the reverend
lecturer and see how his congrega
tion would like it.

Ill the matter oC the Petition of
JOHN ROSS and others'to vacate
an election of Nobles for the Di
vision of Oahu.
llUKOIti: IIICKCItTON, .1.
The petition sets forth that the
petitioners, fifty-one in number, are
residents of Oahu ; that they voted
or were entitled to vote for Nobles
of tho Kingdom at the general elec
tion held on the Island of Oahu on
the third day of February, 1S92.
That the election was held ; that
proper returns were made, and that
certificates of election were made,
signed and delivered to the persons
so declared to be elected. That
duplicates of the certificates, to
gether with the tabulated returns,
were transmitted by said Marshal to
the .Minister of the Interior; that the
following named gentlemen were de
clared elected : J. N. S. Williams,
John A. Cummins and Paul Neu
mann for the term of six years,
John Kna for tho unexpired term of
four years, and Arthur P. Peterson
for the unexpired term of two years.
That C. II. Mailo, John Ross,
Henry Waterhouse, John Kmmcluth,
A. Marques and Samuel M. Kaaukai,
candidates for six years, E. 15.
Thomas for four 3'ears, and James
Ga' for two years, were formally
and legally qualified and registered
as such candidates; Unit, their sev
oral names appeared together with
those before named on the ballots
provided by the Minister of the In
terior for use.
That it then was and is the law
that each ballot should express in
the Hawaiian language what it did
in the English language ; that none
of the ballots -used at said election
contained any Hawaiian words ex
pressing what was printed in Eng
lish. "" That in the preparation and print
ing of said ballots, the Minister of
the Interior refused and neglected
to insert therein the Hawaiian equi
valent of the name of said candidate
Henry Watorhousi', viz: the 'word
"Walakahauki," although said Min
ister was formally requested to insert
said Hawaiian equivalent, and al
though all of the said ballots con
tained the Hawaiian equivalents of
the names of all the others of said
candidates having foreign names.
That by reason of such omission
trom said ballots of said words in
the Hawaiian language, and of the
Hawaiian equivalent of the name of
said Henry Waterhouse, it was im
possible for Hawaiian voters - for
Nobles who were unacquainted with
the English language (of whom
there were several hundreds), to
learn the meaning or particulars of
said ballots, aud consequently were
thereby deprived of their legal and
constitutional rights under the law.
And prays that said election be
vacated and declared null and void.

the petition is in this form:

The law ntdcr which theso pro
ceedings arc brought, is Chapter
LXXXVI. of tho Session Laws of
18510, being "An Act to Amend aud
Consolidate the Election Laws of the
Kingdom." Sections 87, 88, 8!) and
t)0 of said Act read as follows :
. "Section 87. In addition to the
methods hercihbeforo set forth for
vacating any seat in the Legislature,
any candidate, or any thirty persons
who have voted, or were entitled to
vote in tho district, may file a peti
tion addressed to the Chief Justice
of the Supreme Court, setting forth
any cause or causes, why an election
shall be vacated or a seat bo declaretl
vacant. Such petition shall bo filed
in the olllco of the Clerk of the Su
preme Court within thirty days fol
lowing an election, and prior to the
hearing thereon the Clerk shall re
ceive a deposit of such costs as may
be necessary in the ease. The hear
ing may bo had before any Justice of
the Supreme Court, and shall be
held in the Judicial Circuit wherein
the election is disputed. Provided,
however, that the Supreme Court
shall have' no jurisdiction over any
such case during the session of tho
"Section 88. A notice of not less
than fourteen days shall be given to
tho Inspectors of such election as
may be contested, and to the candi
date who shall have been returned, or
whose scat is contested, aud to any
others whose rights or interests are
particularly affected, who shall be
designated by the Chief Justice of
the Supreme Court. Besides such
notice, a written or printed notice shall
be likewise posted in the district, or
published in some newspaper circu
lating in the district, for not less
than ten days prior to such hearing."
"Section 89. No person who has
voted at any election shall, in any
legal proceeding, bo required to
state for whom he has voted."
"Section 5)0. At the hearing the
Justice shall cause the evidence to
be reduced to writing in full, or sulli
cicntly to ascertain all of the facts
involved, and shall thereupon give
judgment, staling all of his findings
of fact and the law thereupon, which
shall then bo transmitted in full to
the Minister of the Interior, provided
no appeal shall be taken. If such
finding shall be that the election was.
invalid, and the seat therefore va
cant, a new election shall at once be
ordered by the said Minister."
As Section i)0 requires the Justice
hearing the cao to state "all his
findings of fact and tho law there
upon," I will first proceed to find
from the evidence the facts.
1 find the following facts to have
been shown and proved by the evi
dence: 1. That thirty-nine of the peti
tioners have voted for Nobles at the
election held on the third day of
February, A. D. 185)2, on the Island
2 That four of said petitioners,
to wit: A. Marques, E. B. Thomas,
C. B. Maileand John Ross, were can
didates for Nobles at said election,
but were not declared elected ;
3. That the petition herein filed,
was filed in the office of the Clerk of
the Supreme Court within thirty days
following said election ;
1. That notice of not less than
fourteen days of said petition and of
the time sot for hearing the same
was given to the Chairmen of the
several Boards of Inspectors of said
election for the Island of Oahu, and
also to all the candidates for Nobles
who were returned as elected at said
election, by seivice made b' the
Marshal upon each of them of a copj'
of the following order:
"The petition of John Ross and
fifty others, having this day been
filed in the office of the Clorlcof the
