us ask the editor at this point whe
ther ho lwliovos that annexation to

tho total abolition of military titles?
Should wo liavo no generals, no colo
nels and no majors undor that happy
regime, or would it morel" bo tho

majors and colonels? Wo beliovo
that if a census wore made to-day in
Honolulu, wo should find our gen
eral, and a host of colonels and cap
tains hailing from tho land of demo
cratic simplicity. Surely this sar
casm is ill-tiinod ami unseemly. Tho
editor should know if he does not
that tho country is not asked to pay
one cent for the salary or uniform
of one single colonel or major as
such. If the Sovereign think it right
to issuo commissions to a few gen
tlemen as members of her staff, it is

SATURDAY, AUG. (5, J8!)2.
A largo attendance is bespoken
for tho meeting of thoso interested
in the proposed Hawaiian Uureau of
Information on iMomlay afternoon.
Tho matter is of greater iinpoitanuo
to tho welfaie of this eountry than
most people without studious ex
amination can seo. With rare natu
ral attractions and conditions emi
nently favorable for health and re
creation, the countrv has only to
make thoso well known abroad to
bring tourists hero by thousands
every month. These wotdd spend
much money hero and it if Jigured
on bi' some people, perhaps without
being too sanguine, t hat a well-devel-oped
tourist travol thither wotdd
more than make up for tho loss of
sugar profits. However that might
bo, all will agree that it is iikmI de
sirable to secure the greatest possi
ble amount of tourist patronage.
O11I3' 1)3' organization with definite,
aims and business-like plans can the
end bo achieved. So lot there bo a
lirgo attendance of business men
and members of tho Legislatures at
the meeting on Mouthy. It Is worth
tho while of tho House to adjourn
an hour earlier than usual for tho
Tho article we aro now considering
is not morel' inconsistent with itself
and former editorial statements of
tho Advertiser but is founded on as
sumptions which can scarcely bo
seriously considered; nor is it alto
gether free from suggestions which
aro positively misleading, as must
bo well known to the editor. Not
ver' long ago tho Advertiser stated
that if the Queen would consent to
one or two changes in tho personnel
of olllee, she would bo tho most
popular ruler since the days of Ka
mohameha. Now wo find tho condi
tion altered or at any rato an addi
tional obligation added to tho origi
nal one. She must now show a dis
position to discard every unneces
sary expense, and a desire really to
identify her interests with thoso of
tho country at largo. Wo cannot
help thinking tho country at largo
in this connection moans tho two or
threo gentlemen habitues of tho
aforesaid editorial room, and tho
three or four others who would like
to see a "closer drawn intercourse,"
as thov call it, with the United
Now, why is the Queen's name
dragged into this discussion at all ?
Has not Her Majesty shown beyond
all question that she has identified
her interests with tho interests of
the eountry at largo ? A contribution
of twenty thousand dollars within
twelve months to the needs of her
subjects constitutes a record above
all cavil. Can the Advertiser demon-
stvato so conclusively that it has tlio
true interests of tho people at heart ?
Has it not invariably sided with in
subordination as against order ? Has
it not always sneered at any attempt
on the part of the executive to main
tain peace and suppress insurrect ion ?
lias it not, over and over again, taken
advantage of the departure of tho
steamer to San Francisco to print
some article or some communication
casting ridicule on tho government?
And this is tho paper which now
counsels tho Queen as to tho right
courso she should follow if she would
loud more stability to her throno !
Wo rather imagine that Her Majesty
will respectful!' decline to follow
oven tho ex cathedra pronuncia
mento of our infallible guide, philo
sopher and friend the Advertiser.
Suioly tho editor lost sight of his
well-known logical methods and
metaphysical accuracy when ho
wrote tho following monstrous state
ment: "The incumbent of tho royal
ollico has no standing oxcopt as tho
representative of tho people." Ho
was more probably thinking of tho
editor of tho Advertiser. Tho pro
position is preposterous. Except in
relations with foreign eountrios it is
not easy to seo how tho sovereign
ean bo called tho representative of
tho people. Has Victoria no stand
ing except as represent at ivo of the
constituents? Tho Grown, tho Lords
and tho Commons, so wo havo al
ways understood, are threo distinct
elements in tho political kingdom,
Now, if tho Queen bo nothing but
tho representative of tho people,
what about tho Lords? Do thoy re
present tho people? Whom do thoy
represont ? No, tho people in politics
aro represented by tho Commons, the
aristocracy by tho Peers of the
Kealm, while the Sovereign repre
sents what, for want of a bet tor word,
wo may call tho abstraction of gov
ernment. Tho Sovereign may veto
tho will of tho people as expressed
by tho Parliament. It cannot, there
fore, lxi seriously advanced that, as
representative of the people, she
vetoes what tho representatives of
the peoplo desire.
Such viows are absolutely com
munistic thoy ate not consistent
with monarchy, and aro only par
tially true in America or Franco,
whore tho President is raised as a
kind of embodiment of law and gov
ernment above those chosen by the
people to represent them in Con
Wo must not be surprised after
such blundering in serious things,
that the Advertiser, when it descends
to sarcasm and jocularity, should bo
a little wide of tho mark, if not Jilto
yethor uiiboonily. Tho following
Tho soldiers forming the guard aro
by universal agreement excellently
drilled. Thoy compare favorably in
tactics with any body of men wo havo
seen parade from tho threo great na
tions recently represented in Hono
lulu. Thoy aro few, it is true, but
that does not make thorn "toy sol
diers." Because tho Advertiser has
a very limited stair, wotdd it bo fair
to speak of it as a "toy journal"?
Certainly not for that cause, though
possibly for others.
It is easy to bo sarcastic. Tho
great thing is to bo wiso and fair and
just. And it is unfair, unjust and
unseemly for any journalist to seize
upon ovory opportunity to drag a
woman's name or person into matters
in jivhich she has taken no part. Lec
tures delivered undor such condi
tions, oven whon wiso, merely irritate;
but when to tho untimolinoss of tho
occasion is added tho fact that tho
lecture is thoughtless, mistakon and
misleading, it will only servo to 0111
phasizo tho truth which is daily
gaining wider acceptance, that in no
sense is the Advertiser tho represen
tative of the Hawaiian peoplo.

Noble Baldwin rose to a question
of privilege to correct a statement
attributed to Noble Maefarlano and
appearing in tho Advertiser, to tho
oll'ect that .$170,000 had boon drawn
from against $5000 deposited in tho
Postal Savings Bank last month. Ho
had inquired and found that tho
actual figures were, during July do
posits, 30,000, withdrawals $55,000.
Minister Widoinann said that tho
timo was now opportune and ho
would answer the questions of Rop.
Pua, and which were part of tho
subject just mentioned. Ho said, in
answer: 1, Tho total amount depo
sited in tho Postal Savings Bank
from April 1, 181)2, to August -1th
hist., was $101,5 12.10. 2, Amount

Rop. Bipikano offered a resolution
that a picture hanging on tho loft
hand side of tho wall near him bo
takon down and a picture of the
Queon substituted in its stoad.
The resolution was rejected.
Noble Thurston questioned tho
Minister of Finance as follows: 1,
Is it true as stated by tho nowspapors
that tho Government is now paying
only 25 percent of gold upon its
obligations? If so, by what autho
rity? 2, Is net such a courso (if
takon) a virtual repudiation of the
Govornmonl'b legal liabilities to com
pel its creditors to. accept payment
of their claims in money which is
not legal tender and which tho Gov
ernment itself refuses to nccopt in
payment of taxes and duties? 3,
What policy and remedy aro sug
gested. Ministor Parker rose to a question
of privilege, and reading from a pa
per said that it was thoro stated that
ho had yesterday said that the Gov
ernment was on tho verge of bank
ruptcy, he wished to state that that
was very incoriect. Ho had not said
so and ho did not like the idea of
newspaper reporters quoting him in
Noble Maefarlano said that ho had
heard tho statement made by tho
Minister yesterday, and ho had
then thought that the expression
was not ver' sound, as it would not
do to havo such remarks re-priutod
as emanating from tho Cabinet.
Ministor Parker I did notsay that
tho Government was on tho verge of
bankruptc', but 1 said that it would
happen so if a run was made by tho
depositors on the Postal Savings
Dank. Thoro was no uso in report
ers being in tho House if ho could
not bo reported properly.
Noble Ena moved that the report
ers present bo requested not to mon
tion anything of this discussion.
Noble Cornwell said that tho re
marks wore made on the floor of tho
House; in fact everybody was talk
ing about bankruptcy yesterday and
therefore ho did not think it proper
to request the gentlemen of the
press present to take anything back
to-day which was actually said yes
terday. (The reporters applaud.)
At 11:35 on motion the Order of
tho Day being moved, the Assembly
resolved into Committee of the
Whole, Hop. Knunamano in the
Hems in tho Interior Department,
under tho Bureau of Public Works,
wore takon up and acted on as follows:
Repairs and running oxponsos of
Lighthouses, $9000. Passed.
Repairs and running expenses
Steam Tug, $22,400.
Thoro was a short, sharp discus
sion on a portion of this item, rela
tive to tho amount of pay of Captain
and Engineer of tho tug Elou.
Ministor Spencor favored an equal
salary at $125 each per month.
Noblo Thurston thought Capt.
Rico was a good citizen, yet ho was
an ignorant man, can hardly read
and writo. Ho considered tho Engi
neer the better man.
Minister Sponcor admitted that
tho Captain was not vory learned
but ho was a thorough sailor. As
much responsibility, and more, rested
on tho Captain as on tho' Engineer.
Ho readily admitted that both woro
On motion tho pay was put at
$125 per month each, and tho item
passed at $21,200.
Steam Tug, debt of last poriod not

Noblo Thurston was opposed to
tho item as placed; ho considered
that an item in Section 2, relative to
Dredging Honolulu Harbor, $35,000,
should bo hero instead.

Noblo Thurston was opposed to
tho presentation made by tho Minis
tor of the Interior relative to tho
cost por light as shown in tho De
partment report. Tho Committee
on Ways and Means had prosonted
facts and figures at half tho estimate
of tho Minister. Ho thought that
tho Government should hold on to
what thoy had and not givo way to
any corporation who desired to run
Ministor Spencer considered that
it would bo to tho advantngo of tho
Government to transfer tho oloctrie
light sj'stom. Thoro was a vory
competent man (Mr. Cassitby) in
charge now, and excellent results
woro being obtained. But it would
bo to the benefit of tho Government
to soil tho plant, and thoy had now
a good opportunity.
Bop. Kamauoha favored tlio idea
of a franchise to some corporation,
provided that tho Government and
tho public woro not losers.
Noble Baldwin was opposed to
parting with what the Government
now had. There would bo no op
position by tho Government to an'
persons coming in and establishing
an electric light system.
