THE ROYAL SIGNATURE.
PiwMbly tho opinion of tho Su
piemo Court that an amendment to
the Constitution does not require
the hignaturo of the Sovereign is
technically correct. Yet for various
l canons it would seem to bo unfor
tunate that tho Ministry should
adopt the opinion as a guide to its
action. Tho reasoning that it is tho
intent of tho instrument that it
might bo amended without risk of
nyal interference may bo correct,
)tit to n hiy mind it appears to bo
but a utiinicessary and inadvisable.
I niiece.--ary. because tiio majority
lequired in tho first instance to
cany an amendment that is, two
thirds is tho same as that which
mails to vendor nugatory tho veto
of the Sovereign upon any act of the
Li tiiblatiue. Inadvisable, because it
must be deemed highly appropriate
that the Sovoieign, as tho permanent
leprcsoutativo of all the people and
the symbolic head of the State,
should confer upon such a solemn
instrument as part of tho fundamen
tal law the dignity of the royal sign
manual. Jf it is tho people that
give effect as well as origin to con
stitutional law, why did not the peo
ple promulgate tho main body of
the pie.-ent Constitution? "Why
should Kalakaua have been con
strained by a display of force to
liaio uttered tho preamble, in tho
iiamo of tho people, and allixed his
.signature as tho sign of its authority
to tho instrument? Another ques
tion arises as to tho method of mak
ing known to tho people that their
will has been executed in tho matter
of any legislated ainondinoiit. That
the Constitution does not require
the publication of an amendment to
itself which has been passed means
nothing moro than that tho franiers
of the document omitted a detail
that should obviously hao been
provided. ft- omi.iou must have
been accidental, as possibly that of
tho .Sovereign's signatjiro was. Is
tho Incentive going to act on an ac
cident, when it has full power to
cicato a wino precedent? That the
omission of a provision for publica
tion at least was an accident, ov a
htupid lapse from coininon .mi.so, is
made apparent by a little o. nina
tion of logical results. Tho . .atutos
of the Kingdom have to bo publish
ed for the information of tho people,
whose delegated voice tho statutes
are. Have not the people an equal
right to bo made acquainted with
enacted aineuduionts to tho founda
tion of all their laws? Where aro tho
lawyers to seok for additions to or
changes in tho Constitution which
aro not published? Mlist everybody
go to tho Seciotary of tho Legisla
tuio and ask him for permission to
copy constitutional amendments
from Iuh records? Jr if tho strict
construction of the Judges is to bo
followed, the only authenticated
copy of a constitutional amendment
will bo tho penciled draft of tho
Seciotary. Tho Legislature may
order an engrossed copy to bo mado,
but if it does it goes beyond tho
Jotter of tho Constitution! Whoro

The Christmas Menu contest closes on
the 10th inst.
The dinner is to be for five people ami
not to cost more than $10.
The Menus will he judged entirely on
their merits and without regard to the
persons submitting them.
$0 goes to the amateur and $5 to the
professional furnishing the best Menus,
On the 21st inst. the Menus will be
published in the Bulletin and the best
of them will be appropriately illustrated.
the above we
come the Bulletin
to contribute to the contest.
Understand that the entire fam
ily, though there may be only
one paper sent to the house, is
entitled to compete. The more
Menus submitted the more in
teresting will be the publica
tion. Names of persons sub
mitting the Menus will not be
published if they request us

last week was
brisk, but we
have some excellent ones left
that go to you at the same re
duced price until they are sold.
It is an opportunity you may
not have again. If you need
light grasp it.
This year our stock of Cut
Glass is composed of small
pieces which come within the
reach of the thinnest purse.
Last season when coin was
ful we had lar
ger and more
out were lacking
in the smaller table pieces.
Cream Pitchers, Rose Bowls
for one or two flowers; Olive
Dishes, Sauce Platters and
Water Pitchers so delicately
cut and shaped as to attract
the attention of people who
enjoy a meal more when the
Viands are placed in appro
priate settings. Cut glass is
like gold, age does not detract
irom its ap
pearance. Among some
ing odd pieces
of cut glass is
as much a fad
as gathering pieces of old lace.
But it's less expensive. The
.prices marked on our assort
ment are surprisingly low
while the pieces are as beauti
ful as any we have ever had.
There is nothing more appro
priate for Christmas.
The lamp business is still
booming and the indications
point to a long
con ti nuance
of it. There's
wet when it comes
to lamps. Two or three new
designs, have some very fetch
ing points about them. One
with a black frame work around
a brass fount is the handsomest
we have among the inexpensive
hangers. While it is strong
and everlasting the absence of
anything .too massive or bung
ling adds to its superiority
over the others.
