THE DAILY BULLETIN.
Pledged to neither Sect nor Party,
But Established for the Benefit of All.
MONDAY, SEPT. 19, 1892.
The Duko of Fife, speaking at tho
Keith cattle show last month, said
"ho was convinced that pioportios
of various sizes wore more desirable
than the solid overgrown estates
which were tho prido of a former
generation, and that ho had carried
out this idea as soon ns lie came into
possession of his own property. Tho
wider distribution of land, ho de
clared, would dispel class jealousy
and promote national stability."
This is tho doctrine that is growing
in Hawaii among all classes and lie
ginning to bo recognized by tho
Tho Advortisor in its local col
umns Saturday statod that Mr. 0.
W. Ashford describes tho ollicial
lottor woroforrod toon Friday after
noon as a "fako" pure and simple.
Wo havo simply to state that tho
letter is porfectly genuine, being
from one oflicial in San Francisco
officially corresponding to an oflicial
here, and was received in tho regular
course of ollicial business by the
mail on tho last Australia. Further,
tho statement alleged to havo been
made by V. V. Ashford was made by
him in San Francisco before tho
Australia loft. Tho exact words we
quoted aro to bo found in that letter
and its authenticity is undeniable,
and if Mr. Ashford or his friends
hnvo no bottor answer for it than
"fnko" wo may lake it that it tacitly
shows that a corrupt bargain has
boon, mailo for Mr. Ashford's sup
port in tho Legislature.
Tho Supremo Court lias unani
mously romloiod an opinion a Hi rul
ing tho ruling of tho President of
tho Legislature namely, that it re
quires twenty-livo elective members,
or a majority of a hill House, ex
cluding tho Ministers, of twenty-four
Nobles and twenty-four Representa
tives, to pass a vote of want of con
fidence in the Ministry. There was
never a question raised that twenty
fivo members wore not required for
that purpose, until tho Opposition
discovered that it could only muster
twenty-four votes against tho Minis
try. Tho leaders in the protest
against tho President's ruling, who
had a hand in making the Constitu
tion, know that tho intent of Arti
cle 41 was declared in the ruling,
but thoy scrupled not to make a
desperate attempt to discredit
their own work, and to ninko
a disorderly exhibition of childish
vexation over their defeat in the at
tempt to rush tho now Cabinet out
before it had time to take breath. It
makes for stability in tho Govern
ment to have tho Constitution yield
only a conservative interpretation at
tho hands of tho Supremo Court on
so important a matter as tho tenure
of a Cabinet in prosenco of a Legis
lature containing no single parti'
possessed of a working majority. A
snap judgment against a Ministry,
in tho midst of a heap of delayed
public business, with a House incom
plete in numbers, would bo a con
tingency in ovory way deplorable,
involving deadlocks that may bo
dangerous, and devoting tho inter
ests of tho people to disaster.
IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE.
The Advortisor opens a lecture in
loftv strain on tho dignity of
tho Legislature, based on an
episode in which Representative
Nawahi figured, with thoso words,
"Yestorday witnessed a scono in tho
House moro disgraceful than any
thing which has been enacted there
during tho course of tho present ses
sion." Our roport aud tho Adver
tiser's roport of tho "scene" agree as
to tho fact. Wo do not offer to excuse
or palliate Mr. Nawahi's indiscre
tion. What wo do say, though, is
that tho Advertiser's representation
of tho scono as being "more disgrace
ful" than anything enacted in tho
Houso is untruthful. Wo further
say that tho Advertiser is dishonest
in singling out Mr. Nnwulil for ou
mho uhilo concealing tho equally
disgraceful and similar olFbnso of
another Representative at tho ovon
ing session of Wednesday, and the
much moro disgraceful conduct of
Representative A. Horner at tho
closo of tho afternoon session of
Thursday. Tho ono wo do not name
appealed to the spectators behind tho
chairs the saino as Mr. Nawahi, but
then ho was supporting Mr. Smith
and Mr. Thurston. That makes a
groat diHbrcuco with tho paper that
has for its motto, "Bo just and fear
not," etc. Mr. Horner made the
most lowdy exhibition of himself in
conduct and speech that has over
disgraced tho Legislative hall of
Hawaii in living memory. Ho
made bullying gestures at tho
President of tho Legislature and
used vile language of tho slums in
abusing that gentleman's gray hairs.
His words aro utterly unfit for publi
cation and could only proceed from
a depraved mind. Mr. Hornor is a
white man and an enemy of tho late
and tho present Ministry. There
fore tho Advortisor does not daro to
oxposo his ruffianly conduct. Mr.
Nawahi when ho lapsod from de
corum was battling, unflinchingly if
unwisely, for tho Ministry, and boing
a native Hawaiian tho Advortisor in
vidiously selects him as a subject
although a moro flagrant ono is in
its own camp for its hypocritical
dissertation on legislative decorum
and dignity. It is oqually unfair in
its selection of minor subjects, when
it names Messrs. White and Kauna
mano also ns supporting tho offend
er, without tho slightest scintilla of
proof. Mr. Humor's offense was
equally dangerous, as well as moro
disgraceful, in comparison with that
of Mr. Nawahi. It moro nearly pre
cipitated a riot, as a chivalrous young
man was with difficulty restrained
from leaping through tho window
to punish tho nuthor of tho black
guardly attack on tho oldorly head
of tho Legislature. Mr. Nawahi was
carried away by the imperfectly
curbed impulses of his race, while
hoated by his part in n warm debate.
Mr. Homer gave looso roin to an
ungovernable passion aftor defeat,
which in his race is universally re
garded as incompatible with tho
dignity of a gentleman,

widely known in that State, says of

ENT OF Tim JUMCIAIIY, I

To tho Honorablo Legislature of the
Tho Justices of tho Supreme
Court havo had tho honor to receive
from your Honorablo Body tho fol
"Resolved, That tho opinions of
tho Justices of tho Supremo Court
bo required upon tho following ques
tions, namely: Tho Legislature now
consisting of but forty-sit oloi-tod
members) owing to tho resignation
of two moinbors, aro twenty-four or
twontyfivo of such mombors re
quired to form a majority of all tho
olectivo mombors of tho Legislature
within tho moaning of Article 41 of
Article 4.1 of tho Constitution pro
scribes that tho Sovereign shall ro
movo .the Cabinet "upon a voto of
want of confidence passed, by a
majority of all the elective members of
the Legislature, and tho question upon
which our opinion is required is
whether this means a majority of all
tho olectivo mombors actually hold
ing seats in tho Legislature, or a
majority of tho full quota of elective
members authorized and required by
tho Constitution (that is 48 mombors),
not diminishing this number on ac
count of vacancies. It is ovidont that
tho term "elective" is used in order
to exclude tho Cabinet, who are ap
pointivo aud not elective members,
from participation in such a voto. It
is also evident to us that the phraso,
"a majority of all tho eloctivo mem
bers of tho Legislature," would not
authorize a majority of a bare
quorum to pass a voto of want of con
fidence. And wo feel obliged to say
that tho phraso loaves room for
honest doubt as to whether tho
majority intended is that of tho
actual members or of tho full num
ber required to bo oloctod, that
is twenty-four Nobles and twenty-four
legislation is authorized by Ar
ticle 49 to bo conduotod by
a quorum which is declared
to bo a majority of tho whole
foody. And a majority voto of such
quorum is sufficient for tho adoption
of any measure, .See Rule 5 of tho
Tho Constitution provides for
Jour contingencies or subjects
upon which tho decisive voto
shall 1)0 othorwiso than for ordinary
legislation. Thoso are: (1st) Article
41, tho voto of want of confidence;
(2nd) Article 48, tho voto upon pass
ing a bill over tho Sovereign's veto;
(3rd) Article G5, tho voto to romovo a
Judgo of a Court of Record, and
(4th) Articlo 82, tho final voto upon
an amendment of tho Constitution.
The language used when these four
matters aro tho subject of a voto in
the Legislature is oil her "a majority
of all tho olectivo members," "two
thirds of all tho elective moinbors,"
or "two-thirds of all tho members."
On such occasions partisan feeling
is apt to bo warm, aud tho Const itu-
