The Honest People of Honolulu:
Tho Shirt Question is still in tho
minels of tho public ami I wisli to
make a standing statement in regarel
to the Luning-.lohnson matter. On
or about the 2el day of Decombor a
lot of olel shirts was loft hi my ollico
with instructions to repair thein by
one signinl Liming. I eliel repair
i no siuris, aim a low eiays iniur iius
man Liming, aeconipanioel by his
wife, called and brought another
shirt to bo repaired, and also asking
to seo tlu first lot of shirts. 1 show
ed them and they were both well
ploasoel ami said tho job was well
done, and told mo that tho China
man woulel call on Monelay and tako
them to be re-laundried. This was
em Saturday jiroviems to Monday
mentioiied, anil when t finished tho
last shirt I brought tho bill to
Liming at his ollico. Ho got oxeited
but 1 eliel not scare, and I simply
told him I woulel liko to collect
money for my work. Ho useil somo
verv hot words and saiel I had a
e-he'ok te ask for my 11101103 then,
ami he saiel ho woulel ruin 1110, but
still 1 eliel not scare. I tolel Liming
in presences of a witness that ho was
welcome to call at my place of busi
ness, where 1 have a room , onclosoel,
anil he coulil try on the shirts thoro,
but ho woulel not elo it. No eloubt
Mr. Luning thought he had dead
easy game, but ho was liko tho man
that foil out of tho balloon ho was
simply not in it. 1 will say this,
that in any case 1 make now shirts
ami if thoy elo not give entire satis
faction I will alter thoni, inako now
shirts, or refund tho money. Can
any person elo moro? I will also
keep in repair all shirts mailo by 1110
for two years free of chargo, for I
am as e-uiot us a lamb.

ASSAULT ON THE AUDIT ACT.
Tho Advortiser, with its custom
ary perversity of judgment, selects
for its oelitorial approval and appro
bation that clause in tho proposeel
amendment to tho Audit Act, which
takes away tho independence and
impartiality of judgment anil action
of thoAiulitor-Goneral by makinghis
salary eloponel on tho caprice's e)f a
temporary majority in tho Legisla
ture or his own ability to logroll or
give lunus. That tho Legislature has
power to break the implied contract
with tho present occupant of the
office made by his appointment in
the terms of tho present law that
his salary should not bo diminished
during his continuance in office wo
do not for one moment believe, and
wo feel confidont that any court of
justice will uphold this opinion. Mr.
G. J. Eoss, tho present Auelitor
Goneral, has fearlessly and impar
tially mado his office of great value
to the Government and pooplo of
tho country by preventing every
thing which savored of illegality or
jobbery in the expenditure of Gov
ernment finances without regarel to
party or Ministerial personnel.
I?ov. AV. J3. Oloson in a (tior to
tho Advertiser recorels his views
against annexation from tho stand
point of an American. As ho is
shortly to leave for tho United
States to live thoro, this definition of
his position should have no little
weight. Mr. Oleson says: "I may bo
alone, but I am convinced that bj
retaining its autonomy, this country
is likely to gaiu greater commercial
aelvautages than by amalgamation
with any other country." Ho con
cludes, "To cry 'Annexationist' after
one who advocates such a policy
may serve present small political
purposes, but it balks anel retards
tho broader policy that would fostor
Hawaii's independence anel promote
her commercial prosperity." Well
said, and tho remark applies eepially
well to thoses who, to "servo present
small political purposes," cried
"anti-American" against the Bulle
tin, when it had always been fore
most in advocating , closor commer
cial relations which tho Uniteel
States, because it was not afraid to
express liko views to that of Mr.
Oloson, and other intelligent Ameri
cans, nor feared to criticiso tho con
duct of high Ainorican officials
when such seemed, in 0110 instance,
to bo an infringement on Hawaiian
independence ami, in another, a vio
lation of tho claims of humanity.
