WEDNESDAY, JULY 18, 1894.
That quoor paper tho Star, while
whacking at tho ''rojalists" for their
patienco in awaiting a dual dolivor-
ance on tho Hawaiian question from
tho United States Government, is it
itelf reverting to the politics of 1880
90 for matter of discussion. Sub
jects so old are Greek to a very large
proportion of the supporters and
beneficiaries of the P. G. aud the
Kopublio. There must be some very
coarse gravel sticking iu tho crop of
the Star from the 1890 period.
According to the Star, the only
platform "tho supporters of good
government" have or need to have
is, "The Republic of Hawaii and
ultimate annexation to the United
States." What an astute piouuncia
uieuto thin is! Our internal affair
will run themselves, it would ;eem
from that, with only the name of
"Itepubliu" over them or I.' tilted
States soil beneath them. Say, don't
they have political platforms in the
United States, great sage of the
A PLEA FOB THE JURY.
There is inconsistency as well as
injustice iu tho Advertiser's assaults
ou the native Hawaiian jury. That
paper holds that "the jury system
has almost outlived its mefulncss
everywhere, while lu Hawaii it never
bad any usefulness to outlive." Yet
it says Hawaiians are not to be
severely censured if they take the
view that as jurors they should re
gard thomselves the representatives
and protectors of the interests of
their own race. Wherein else has
tho valuo of the jury systom over
consisted, if uot in its representa
tive aud protective character in rola
tion to tho people, as well as to the
united interest of the people iu their
organized govornmeut! Then, again,
according to the morning oracle, "it
is not diillcult to conceive that there
aro strong reasons" for tho "reten
tion" of tho jury system which,
mark, "has almost outlived its use
fulness everywhere "iu tho United
States of America." Anythiug that
has almost survived its usefulness
everywhere, ouo would think, cannot
possibly have strong reasons for its
retention in so progressive a coun
try as the United States. Apart
from the protection of public and
popular rights, there are arguments
for the retention of the jury system,
in overy civilized country, which
cannot be flippantly dismissed ou
the strength of new light theories.
These arguments need uot be gone
into at length ou this occasion, as
there is not likely to be any strong
movement here for many years to
come in favor of tho abolition of the
system. It may be remarked, how
ever, for one thing, that the jury
system is an invaluablo conservator
of respect for the majesty of law. It
is also an educative institution of in
calculable value, for training tho
people iu the principles of law aud
justice. Through this function it is
promotive of observance of law not
only toward the state, but as between
mau aud man. When, for iustauce,
a man has sat on a jury to try a case
in which the law relaliug to liue
fences has been thoroughly thrashed
out by opposing lawyers, then im
partially aud lucidly reviewed by
tho presiding judge, the chauues are
very strong that the juror will uot
be liable thereafter himself to trans
gress the law relative to liue fences.
As to tho Advertiser's attack on
Hawaiian juries, it does uot6eem hard
to prove it lame and impotont, so
far as convincing the public at largo
is concerued. The burden of proof
rests ou the attacking party to make
good its charges. This it hhould be
able easily to do providing the
charges are just. Let the Adver
tiser give the statistics from the
judiciary record, at to the propor
tion of verdicts successfully attacked
ou appeal say for the past five
years. Also, a comparison of num
bers of verdicts upset between Ha
waiian, foreign, and mixed juries.
Then let it give the miliiltor of deci
sions and Judgments of individual
judges reversed on appeal, and com-
paro numbers in this regard with
verdicts so overturned. In this lat
ter respect tho judgments of the
Police Court of Honolulu ought
fairly to be considered, as its bench
has been almost constantly occupied
by men possessed of the same train
ing iu all save experience and
sometimes without this exception
as tho occupants of the superior
benches. The Advertiser says:
"Whore lows aro oppressive or un
just tho jury systom is a good thing,
for juries, as a rule, will not onforco
unjust laws. Where judges aro cor
rupt or tyrannical, juries step in and
protect the people But our lawn
are not oppressive, and our judges
are just, and wo need juries, if we
ueed them at all, for neither of these
This is tho argument ad
hominem or based on individual
personalities for tho vanishing pre
sent in view aud for the rest is not.
wholly founded on fact. Wo may
have judges both tyrannical and un
just in tho future, as wo havo seen
judges of like passions with ourselves,
who on occasions show too much
of tho advocate and too little of the
arbitrator, in tho past. Wo havo had
oppressivo laws aud somo of them
are still tho subjects of popular agi
tation for their abolition. Judges
have commented with almost unbe
coming warmth from tho bench upon
the operation of laws which thoy
deemed to bear oppressively upon
certain classes and nationalities.
There havo been instances, more
over, in civil litigation whoro the
judges could not comprehend tho
peculiar or technical facts elicited
when these wore perfectly clear to
tho practical men in the jury box.
No doubt there have boon some
abuses of tho jury systom. Hut of
what system, civil or judicial, iu
human government cannot tho same
be averred? Becauso the parliamen
tary system has been suttject to cry
ing abuses, hern and everywhere,
would you abolish the right of tho
people through thoir representatives
to make their laws!
In riow of tho assaults by the
principal paper supporting tho Gov
ernment of the Itepublic upon the
jury system, it is in order for the
framor of every election platform
that bids for popular confidence to
pronounce uo uncertain note upon
this subject. It is bad enough to bo
politically ruled by an oligarchy,
but, with whatever power tho friends
of liberty in tho voting minority
havo, they should strenuously resist
further encroachments upon popular

Hawaiian Hardware Co.. L'd
Saturday, July 14, 1894.
We have unpacked our wash
stands and bath tubs from the
Standard Manufacturing Co.,
and are well pleased with them.
You can find others of the same
style and quality in large es
tablishments but 'they have
never been shown here before.
We bring to Honolulu a stock
from which you may select what
you want without having to de
pend upon a catalogue or the
judgment of your friends
abroad. A gentleman remark
ed to us yesterday that a friend
of his has the finest bathroom
he ever saw. The information
did not surprise us because we
furnished the pool, and we have
the article that will make an
other bathroom look just as
elegant. We have, in addi
tion to tubs and pools, closets
of the latest patterns and im
provements; we have wash
stands either corner or wall,
and in enamel ware or mar
ble. We have very beautiful
nickel plated towel racks and
soap dishes made by the same
company and which harmonize
with the fittings on the tubs.
There is no reason why the
fittings of a bathroom should
receive less attention than the
decorations in a parlor. True
enough it is not used as a place
for lounging in but it is a spot
at which most people take a
great deal of comfort. The
idea that the bath tub may be
poked in the darkest corner of
the house has given away with
other things to the march of
progress; the larger and
brighter the room the better
for sanitary arrangements.
Another mistake is to put the
tub in a corner; place it far
enough from the wall to allow
walking around it and enable
the housekeeper to maintain a
policy of cleanliness. Wher
ever bath tubs and wash stands
are under the old order of
things there you will find
roaches; with our bath tubs
made entirely of metal and
raised from the floor they will
never be. Our wash stands
arc made so that every part is
"get-at-able" with broom or
brush. Some are made of
iron and enamelled to imi
tate marble and it is so well
done that it is difficult to tell
the difference; the marbletops
to the more expensive ones
are beautiful specimens of the
product of the Tennessee quar
ries; with the nickel plated
trimmings that go with them
they make handsome pieces
for any room. Take it all in
alt we have the bath goods the
people want, people who like
to scratch their backs without
having to clean their finger
For the past week we have
had a man adjusting our Sew
ing Machines and putting them
in condition for delivery at the
homes of the people who want
"Wertheims," the only sewing
machine made that will make
three different stitches without
changing the thread or needle.
The action is perfect and the
adjustment as perfect as a sew
ing machine can be made "no
Hood's Sarsaparilla feeling"
after running a "Wertheim,"
the bearings are so regulated
that a child can run the ma
chine without feeling fatigued.
When you are buying a ma
chine just consider that in
ours you get something that
will sew three stitches without
changing the shuttle, for less
money than you will pay in
other places for a plain every
day sewing machine.
