THE TWO TAX LAWS.
In reply to n submiflsion of tho
question by President Dole, n
majority of tho Supremo Court

that tho Court lias not soon fit to
givo an opinion on tuo tjueution of
whether tho tax law is unconstitu
tional os involving 1 n;Uo taxa
tion. Ptobably this question was
not subiuilti'd to tuc, or they
would r,t loiib'i liu". 0ivc. c reason
for not answoriuc it. The Coiut
hns no business to c've voluntarv
opinions to oithor iiio Fvo,.Hvo
or the TiCinilnt""" i.a. ..-. ;
thin case what concerned the Ex
ecute o chiefly was whether tiio in
ternal tax law n ;rT. r :n lino
with tho pittil?l'?!'et vtu sys
tem of the country was placed in
jeopardy by a toutativo measure
for tho first timo enacted and loss
preferred, if a choice had
to bo made, to tho othor
enactment. It is tho settled
practice iu jurisprudence, any
way, for the last court of resort to
leavo constitutional issues unde
termined whonover a controversy
may bo decided upon other issues
in any matter under review. In
the case of the income tax law, it
is not vitally essential to the Gov
ernment whether tho measure
provo to bo constitutional or not,
but it might bo a very serious
matter if its becoming law would
destroy more important legisla
tion. The Court has set this
latter question at lost. As to its
deciding on tho mooted constitu
tional question at this stage, there
may be very serious objections
occur on a moments lollection.
Possibly tho Court might havo a
very different opinion to give up
on a full review of specific alleged
cases of double taxation under tho
law, after hearing exhaustive
arguments on both wide tlmn it
would render upon a mere sub
mission of the bill before it had
become law. It would hardly bo
n desiiablo pieccdont to establish,
moreover, to have tho Supremo
Court called upon, as a regular
thing, to interpret bills ponding
in tho Legislature. Its business
is to interpret tho laws, not to
assist in' their legislation. Lot the
income tax law stand or fall on its
merits, constitutional as well as
Canada is in tho throes of n
general electiou for tho Dominion
Parliament, which is held every
five yoars. The Liberal party has
only hold power for ono term of
fivo years 1873-8 out of tho
twenty-nine years tho Dominion
will havo existed up to July 1 en
suing. Sir John Macdonald's
administration was overthrown
in 1873 on account of the "Pacific
Scandal." The Premier and some
of his colleagues wore personally
convicted in Parliament of having
received about $100 000 for elec
tion purposes from Sir Hugh
Allan and others, who were pro
mised in return tho charter for
building the Canadian Pncific
Hailway. At the instance of Dr.
Charles Tuppor, who has sinco
been knighted, Sir John adopted
tho cry of protection in 1878,
nnd times being dull ho
swept tho country and his
parly lias maintained power,
with hands down, ever sinco. Sir
Charles Tapper lately gavo up
tho ofiico of High Commissioner
to London to take tho Premier
ship, and, although this is tho
forty-second year since he entered
public life, he is conducting a
L!Crin campaign in till

the Cabinet, is ably assisting tho

tho Catholic minority of Manito

a French-Canadian and Catholic,

favor of a rovonuo tariff, besides
making a strong fight on the gen

Tho San Francisco people who
aro attempting to force on an
indulgent public another book of
mistakes compiled principally
from their Dead Man Directory
of 1891 uro using every means in
their power to got tho patronage
of the mercantile public. Tho
most prominont merchants in
town buo turned them down
very neatly, politely informing
them that they prefer to patron
ago the local Directory now being
gotten up by 13. L. Finney. They
dare not mako any complaint
through tho press. (And right
here wo want to say that wo will
give thorn space in this papor.)
No! That is not tho point. They
don't daro toll people whom they
call on, that thoy are working for
llustod of San Francisco (a
foroigu firm who uovor spends n
dollar in this country), but their
peoplo allow it to bo inferred that
they aro working for B. L. Fin
ney. Mr. Husted is a very smooth
article, who aluuys goes back to
San Francisco and boasts of
tho wny in which he has
"done" tho llawaiiau morchants.
Dut this timo ho will got fooled,
as a great many morchants will
not only not ndvortiso with him,
but refuse to give or allow him to
gather tho names of employes in
their establishments, und that tho
public may know who is working
for tho local firm a list of their
names is givon below: 13. L. Fin
ney, J. 13. Daniels, Geo. Ottorson,
Archie Steolo, A. V. Gear, Antono
Seabury, W. F. AVilburton and
llugh P. King. Pationize tho

Thoro is not a suitablb day for
aquatic sports in tho Hawaiian
calendar of holidays. Tho fourth
of July is too warm for rowing,
besides being crowded with othor
sports, nnd tho 28th of November
is npt to havo unsuitablo woathor.
All of tho remaining holidays aro
habitually devoted to other popu
lar divorsions or social customs of
long standing. It is proposed
thorofore that a special holiday to
bo known as ltegatta day should
be placed in the bill beforo tho
Legislature. Tho first Saturday
in Ootobnr is favored by boat
ing muu as tho boat timo, both as
boiug seasonable and providing
a broak hi tho long intorval be
tween the Fourth of July
and tho 28th of November. Aqua
tics havo been seeoud to no othor
class of sports for popularity in
Honolulu, and with sovoral strong
and well-equipped boating clubs
they aio bound to maintain thoir
high position. Ono good general
regatta is, however, onough to tax
tho activity of theso organizations
for each year, with of course iso
lated match races on opportunities
between times, just to keep
, tho interest fresh and keon. It
takes a full day to hold a regatta
containing anywhoro from six to
twelve evontsnd it is to bo hoped,
the Legislature will favorably
considor tho proposition of crcat-
ing a holiday exclusively for ro

It is not for Thanksgiving but
for Independence Day that Min

is tho anniversary of tho formal
