attack upon flio House of Repre

with stultifying itsolf in the mat

tho infallibility of tho presont
Legislature, honco that its wrath
was duo to tho violent wrench
givou to its mind from having tho
dogma torn up by the roots. Not

of our contemporary, howovor, tho
gonoral public aro likely to view

law that was novor asked

Tho whole idea was a more fad.
suggestod first sorao yoars ago by
a leodiug planter, at a conferenco
between tho trustees of tho Plant
ers' Company and a delegation of
workiugnion upon tho question of
Asiatic competition in labor othor
than plantation. ' It was then
urged and has since, on various
occasions, boon sedulously forced
upon public consideration, a? the
only way in which tho run of
, plantation laborers conld bo kept.
When first proposal -the solo
object was to keop plantation
"contract laborers from deserting
thoir bound sorvice, as at that
time an law providing for tho
asportation of peoplo of any par
ticular class or nationality,
excepting for crime, would have
been unconstitutional. In the
sessions of 1890-92, the constitu
tion was amended so as to permit
of class legislation in respect of
tho control and regulation of all
or any classes or nationalities of
immigrants admitted to ongago in
agricultural or domostio labor.
That nmondmont was scarcely law
jntil tho old constitution was
abrogated by tho revolution of
1893, but its principle was re
simcted in the Constitution of tho
llopublic (Sec. 3 of Article 1), as
Tho Legislature may provide by
law, however, for tho supervision,
jcgistration, control and ideutifi
DHtion of all persons, or any class
or nationality of persons; and
may also by law restrict and limit
Vio term of residence, and tho
business or employment of all
persons or of any cluss or na
tionality of persons coming into
Beforo the prohibition of class
legislation was thus modified, any
measure for tho rogistering of any
eluss or nationality, apart from
"others, would havo been unconsti
tutional. Thorofore, tho people
Toro told that only through uni
Torsal registration could the Olii
aeso bo reached for control, so as
to hold all of them thereafter in
troduced to tho alternative of nbid
ing under contracts for plantation
and domostio labor or being sent
out of tho country. Tho modifi
cation of tho constitutional safe
guard against class legislation
ioroin stated, howovor, wiped
out tho nocossity that has boon
argued for universal regis
tration. In consequence the
passage of tho Registration Act,
with its great scope to executive
discretion in tho decreeing of do
tails, was a wanton trespass upon
tho liberty of citizens which a
Jargo proportion of tho citizens
Save quickly proved they were
Toady to resont. Tho Legislature
laving been by abundant evi
dence convinced that it had com
mitted a blunder in passing such
a measure could not do otherwise
than stultify itsolf by leaving tho
law in tho statutes either 'to bo
como a dead letter or to causo
sorious voxation of tho peoplo in
its forcible execution. If regis
tration of Ohinoso immigrants is
necessary for enforcing the con -
ditions under which they enter
tho country, all that is needed is
to ompowor and direct tho Board
of Immigration to register them'
thumb marks, photographs and
all as thoy arrivo. Why Bhould

What a pretty introduction
to a novel could be made out
of a Honolulu evening ! The
picture is incomplete, how
ever, without ringing in a hand
some parlor lamp. We have
your choice of many varieties
of hanging lamps in the most
artistic styles silver, bamboo,
black iron, porcelain, etc., with
elegant shades. If it's "light
on the subject" you want, you
may just as well have it in
style. The prices will not be
in your way, you cannot get
lower for equal value elsewhere.
Don't bother any more with
that wornout lamp, but treat
your household to a "thing
of beauty" that will shed a
nightly glory over your do
mestic happiness and pleasures.
Some people may have tried
to convince you that the mon
archy of the oil stove has been
abrogated in favor of other in
ventions. Don't give any
countenance to such a notion.
The oil stove has kept right
ahead with the march of pro
gress, until its improvement
has culminated in the Blue
Flame Oil Stove that we sell.
If we have told any of you
that our stock was exhausted
and would not be replenished
for some little time, we must
take it back as we do now
gladly. The Monowai agree
ably surprised us with a iresh
lot, and they are now opened
out. None who saw the ex
periments in cookery perform
ed on this stove in our store
recently will need to be in
formed of its superior merits.
any wno am not nave tnat op

of the stove's qualities on ap

is that we never try to sell
goods on the chance that they
may give satisfaction. , We
want our customers to be thor
oughly convinced that 'they are

here is no doubt in your
mind as to the 'proper place
to get a Good Watch;
if tho ntfmbor wo have

You havo sometimes
been undecided, when
swayed by tho well inten

found that it was just the
opposite. That for a roally

much less than'you sup

better, and gave you th.reo
