Members of tho Logislnture utter
ed, and several writers for tho press
have echoed, the doetrino that tho
veto power of t ho Sovereign is only
to bo exorcised in rare cnes of groat
moment. Tho tone of these oracles
is indeed that a matter for tho oxer
ciso of the royal veto must bo either
ns high as the moon or as deep as
tho bed of tho Pacific. Thoro is
nothing in tho Constitution whoro
tho veto is authorized, howovor, for
anv such transcendental notions of
tho prerogative. Tho veto article is
copied word for word, excepting
whore tho difference of institutions
requires a change, from tho Consti
tution of tho United States. In the
United States tho oxorciso of tho
veto by tho President, whenever ho
regards any legislation as injudicious
or uncalled-for, is accepted as part
of tho dtities for which ho has boon
elected. Indeed, Presidentelect
Cleveland owes thousands of tho
votes that have given him tho vic
toiT to his fearless and frequent ox
orciso of tho veto, when ho was Pro
sidont before, in the interest of tho
whole people. England and hor
traditions aro not in tho question at
all. It was not on tho English plan
that the veto was inserted in our
Constitution, but as stated it is
strictly tho American volo that wo
have. Thoro is tho same safeguard
against imposition on tho part of
tho Executive Head namoly, a two
thirds vote of tho Legislature over
tho veto here as in tho United
States. Our veto liko the American
is simple and direct-acting, with
simple and direct-acting machin
ery for preventing its being an in
jur to tho public intorosts. Thoro is
no occasion for any rhetoric over a
vetoed bill. If tho Sovereign with or
without ministerial advice declines to
sign a bill, that is tho Sovereign's es-
taulisheu constitutional right; ana,
on tho other hand, it is tho Legisla
ture's privilege to over-rido this
action of the Sovereign by a two
thirds vote. Oppononts of a vetoed
measure should not support the
veto, however, simply because it is
tho Sovereign's prerogative to exer
cise it. They should uso thoir judg
ment to decide whether tho reasons
given by tho Sovereign aro sullicient
for thwarting tho will of a majorit
of t lie Legislature. For instance", if
a point urged by a majorjtj opposed
to a bill lias been that tho people
have never asked for such a measure,
or, in thoir honest boliof, that the
people aro decidedhy opposed to it,
then they should take full advantage
of tho veto and strivo to gain for it
tho support of tho requisite excess
of ono-third of tho Legislature. On
the othor hand, if a minority has op
posed a measure that has been dis
cussed at tho polls, and a majority
of whoso advocates have been olected

on that as ono of tho issues, then it
would bo a clear violation of tho
rights of tho peoplo for ono-third
and ono of tho Legislature to sustain
a veto of such measure. Tho action
latterly described would simply be
an instance of minority rule which
would not bo frequently tolerated.
Tho veto is really tho only check
in our Constitution against hasty
legislation. In tho United States
before a bill reaches tho President it
has lo pass two Houses of Congress,
elected by different constituencies
and for different terms. In Great
Britain tho Houso of Lords acts as a
check on tho House of Commons,
rejecting or modifying its legisla
tion. Besides, tho important public
measures in Great Britain aro initi
ated by tho Ministryand if thoy
cannot got tho support of a majority
tho Ministry must oithor abandon
thorn or resign. The absence of
vetoos in England for conturios is
mainly duo to tho fact that it is
almost impossible for tho British
Parliamont oithor to run ahead of
tho popular will or to traverse it.
In othor words, tho Sovereign's veto
has become practically obsolete in
Great Britain because thoro aro
abundant chocks against rash legis
lation without that of royal prero
gative. Tho Hawaiian Legislature
has to-day shown that it values tho
existence of tho Sovereign's veto. It
has accopted tho reasons given for
tho oxorciso of tho veto in a specific
caso. By giving a largo majority
against a measure that it had just
passed, it has also shown that the
veto is a valuable instrument in its
affording of an opportunity for ro
considoration of snap judgments
after a slender majority has iu tho
Hush of triumph soaled tho door

Chandeliers nt low prices
are .still moving; it's the price
that takes them away and
there's no one bidding against
you. It's astonishing how many
people wanted good light but
held back for fear the price
was against them. You have
another chance this week if
they are not all sold.
Kookwood, the most beauti
lul of all American pottery is
about half the price it was two
years ago without any change
in quality. Some choice vases
are of exquisite tints and artis
tic decoration equal in effect
to Crown Derby "or Royal
Worcester. Your cabinet will
be improved by the addition
of one or two pieces.
Two very handsome sets in
silver for tea service will catch
the eye of the man who wants
to impress upon his wife the
fact that he is the very best
husband in the world. The
price is insignificant compared
with the beauty it adds to your
table and the high appreciation
which your good wife will have
The cut glass cream pitchers
mentioned in this column last
week are really the most beau
tiful pieces of this ware we
have ever had. The shapes
are odd and the cutting equal
to the most expensive bits
manufactured. One piece of
cut glass is as much value in
table decoration as any thing
you can ouy. cjome 01 tne
olive dishes are duplicates of
the very handsome ones shown
last year; others are of an en
tirely new pattern, shell shaped
and the quint essence of love
liness. Another invoice of Royal
lemonade shakers will enable
us to meet the demand for
Christmas novelties, If you
don't object to planting lemon
seeds in your stomach the old
style shaker will answer; some
stomachs rebel at such food
and it's to those people whose
" innards" won't stand it that
we mention the new style
shakers. We have never shown
one to a person yet but what
a sale was made and the pur
chaser felt that he had the
best of the bargain. That
means that they are cheap.
Carving sets are always in
demand at this season. Visions
of aged turkeys, sold as the
genuine variety, appear to the
man who has to do the carving
and he yearns for a sharp tool
to do the work with. If you
do not need a set of carvers
we can supply you with a
"Jointer" made especially for
carving fowls. The little knife
grinder will help out the peo
ple who do not want to incur
the expense ol buying new
People who live in Oriental
splendor come to us for their
lamps. We have some
styles suited to that class as
well as less expensive ones for
the people who class them
selves as plain every day peo
ple. Everything is in having
the goods for the masses. You
seldom have to go elsewhere
for anything in our lines, they
are always full and we sit up
nights to see that we are not
short on anything. That's
how we come to please the
Oriental splendor people.
Banquet lamps in old silver
are among the handsomest of
ornamental and useful things
for the parlor. No matter
what you may furnish your
room with it looks badly if the
lamp is not all right. Put a
good lamp on a smart table
and your furniture may be of
Nor'west; it's the lamp that
does the business.
