Mny I bo allowed to odor a fow re
marks on tho question which is now
submitted to tho Siipromo Court?
In tho first plnco, I consider tho
word "elective" as somewhat, in
felicitous. Tho Inttn atlix "ivo" in
variably boars an active and not a
passive suggestion. For oxamplo,
tubmitsive moans that which sub
mits, not that which is submitted;
subversive, is that which subverts, and
not that which is subverted; demon
strative, suggestive and numberless
othor words ot this termination will
bo found to bo of activo meaning.
So with "elective." It is not that
which is elected but that which
elocts. Honco, 1 think tho word has
beon questionably employed.
AVo must gather tho intention,
thou, from tho context and not from
tho term. I searcoly imagine that it
will bo supposed to refer to tho
members who may have elective
votes, nor can I think what could bo
tho nature of tho election referred
to. It seems to mo that, by tho or
dinary rule of hermenoutics, the
word "elective" in this statute
was meant to include and to desig
nate tho possible number of mem
bers; that is to say, that in the ab
seuco of a member from t ho House
at tho time of casting tho vote for
tho dismissal of tho Cabinet, his
vote will be presumed to bo in sup
port of tho existing order of things,
rathor than for the inconvenience
and delay of a change of govern
ment. This is reasonable. Tho Bis
marckian aphorism, "Beati possiden
tes," may never bo moro property
applied than in tho case under con
sideration. Calm reflection will
surely suggest many reasons in sup
port of this viow. It makes for tho
stability of public affairs. It pre
vents tho possibility of tho minority
over effecting a "coup do main." It
recognizes tho dignity and weight of
the choice of tho Sovereign, not
suffering it to be lightly set aside.
It gives fair and reasonable security
to tho ministers themselves that they
shall not bo removed except by a
majority of tho whole House. It
evidently takes into consideration
the fact that if tho vacancies in tho
House bo caused by the promotion
of mombors to the Cabinet their
vote, if it could bo given, would bo
for the maintenance of oxistin"
things. For if it wore not so, and if
the Houso wore divided pretty even
ly, then neither party would dare to
place its natural loaders in the Cabi
net; because tho diminution of their
vote would immediately place thorn
at the mercy of their opponents, and
so a ridiculous deadlock would
From theso considerations I con
clude that tho Constitution wisely
intended to render impossible the
very state of things which now
Tho Supremo Court will, no doubt,
give a decision worthy of itself and
which will silence, lot us hope, all
opposition. Meanwhile it is com
petent for the unofficial but inter
ested spectators to offer suggestions.
Honolulu, Sept. 17, 1892.
What is tho matter with Ralph
Tumor? Is it nightmare, ovorstudy
on washerwoman's financiering, or
breathless anxiety to bo noticed?
Not entirely. It is only his way of
taking a little bittor medicine. His
howl sooms unnecessarily prolonged,
but tho modicino goes down.
In those days of progress, tho
would-be cynic who has no f aitli in
tho bettor impulses of mon, tho
pessimist who worships at tho shrine
of Ambrose Bierco, is not wanted.
Tho gloomy visionary belongs to tho
dark ages. Tho men of hopo will
bring tho goldon era; and it will not
como in tho form of a lotlory or any
othor mischievous thing that breeds
nightmares. Tho future is in tho
hands of tho mon who boliovo in
honest toil for honest pay.
I decline to look on tho lottery
farco as high tragedy. An old hen,
frantic at not being able to hatch
anything out of a rotten egg, does
not poso in tho light of tragedy to
anyone but tho hon, As to lottorios

Gamo of Bluff.
A correspondent of tho Advertiser
styling himself Vindox wants to run
tho baud. Berhaps that can bo
arranged. It is of not much national
consequence whether ho does or
doesn't. Wo commend his decision
that tho Cabinet is defeated by a
vote of 21 to 21 to tho consideration
of tho Supreme Court. But his
threat that (his Cabinet "will prob
ably hold till an outraged peoplo
bodily lire thorn out" morits moro
serious attention. It loads us to
inquire who nro tho "outraged peo
ple." Tho anonymous whelp who
seeks to precipitato a disturbance on
tho rule or ruin principles may find
out to his sorrow this is a law
abiding country and tho Constitu
tion provides niorogonteol mot hods
for removing a Cabinet than bodily
firing out. Doosn't all this revolu
tionary talk striko you as an effort
to bluff tho Siipromo Court?
Beoplo are too apt to look and
grasp at tho dark side, when de
pression in business overtakes them.
But there is a glorious future in
store for this little country, and
much nearer perhaps than is ox
peeled. What badly hurts this coun
try and has for some linio past, is
tho damnable and infernal selfish
ness, business and political throat
cutting practiced hero. It has be
come epidemic among all classes;
none are free from it. Is that too
harsh? Stop, every mother's son of
you, and honestly and candidly ask
yourselves if thoro is not altogether
too much truth in tho above remarks,
for tho good of this community.
