J Proportional Representation
' Explained bj p. Emmelutli
A brief explanation of the onlv
tern Hint will give tho Tenltory of Ha
waii n government of the people fin
pie people anil liy the people.
1 Ily proportional representation Is
minnt such adaptation of the system of
I linllotlm; ns shnll make each ote ef
fective in the election of one of the rep
resentatives to lie chosen nt nny gen
I eral election. It Is In this feature that
1 It presents the most marked contrast
j to the party system nt present In vogue
i In the Culled States.
l'nrty politics have reached nn acute
stage of development through III"
methods ndopted by what Is termed
the machine of each party this ma
chine Is largely composed of the ele
ment making politics n business.
They live on the perquisites brought
to them by reason of loyalty to their
party nnd Its success nt the polls
their reward almost Invariably being
nothing more nor less than pilfering
of the public tieasury under pretexts
created by tho legislation of thine
whom they hae nsslsted to elect.
This evil has of late years grown
to such magnitude that the mure
thoughtful and conservative element
In lintli parties are endeavoring to In
troilurc ft-ntmea that shall avert ami
nullify the Influences of the machine,
but th machine will only be eliminat
ed fioni the nrenn of politics, when the
party llnis which ciented It lire remov
ed. 1'roportlonnl Kepresentntlon Is the
only true basis for balloting, giving 113
it does, lopiesmtntton to every citizen
entitled to It. tegnrdless of party lints,
nnil the long list of harmful conditions
'"vuentem the body pontic.
Ileie Is what the Derlanitlon of In
dependence sns In regard to popular
lights: "We hold these? truths to b-bclf-etldcnt.
that oil men nre created
(ipial: that they are endowed by their
Creator with twtnln Inalienable rights:
nnd nmong these are life, liberty nnd
the pursuit of happiness. Thnt to He
rut n tliti-e rights governments are in
stituted nmong men. deriving their Jus:
powers from the consent of the goern
ed; and that whenever any form of
government becomes destructive of
these ends It Is the right of the people
to abolish It."
To secure our rights and thert by per
petuate the principles of popular gov
ernment should be the first duty of
In IS'j.'i the writer of this published
an article on tills subject parts of
wbli h appear below and will tend, by
the loenl character of the tables therein
to permit Hawaiian votcm to bettir
understand the principle of Proportion
A pcison entitled to vote should be
equally entitled to lepre si-ntutlon, and
all laws on the subjeet sho lid be di
rected to the attainment of this result
Hut In practice the very reverse Is the
case, nnd while the Constitution falily
1 gioans under the load of o;ulltlcns nnd
quHlltlcntlotiB, whli h nre prerequisite
to a man becoming a voter and Is dl
lectory In large measure as to how
when and where he Is to register and
ballot, while the statute books lire full
' of laws to pi event clwtlon frauds, etc .
the whole of them aie singularly si
ll nt as to the rl-ilit of each ojer to
equal icprcbentnllon with all other
L'niler the Republic the conditions
have been soniew i.it nlteud from what
obtained under the monaichy; but tbp
results attained me of a nature to In
vlte unfavorable criticism. More es
pecially is tills the ease with the cu
mulative vote, 'which, by the returns of
the only election thus far held under
Its provisions, liab pioven itself as In
operative hcie as elsewhere In obtain
ing just repiesentntlon.
Kiiliuglng the lepresentntlve dls
tilets nnd Increasing the number ot
leprcfeutntlus to bo elected may be an
In,iioveineul over the single district

I rnqi oitsly defeetlve, tin If having bun
no bfiiiblawe of 'quality of lepiesc na
tion under it ns shown by the erlectlon
1 (turns of lkti2, the only complete ie-
1 turns I have been nble to obtain.
I On the whole there lb but little to
hope for In the way of Improvement
under tlm piesent system of voting:
and we can look fonvnid to the same
kind ofjiolltlc.il mlscanlages wl en
politics are once moie aitliely Indulg
ed In by the whole element eligible to
beioinu voters, as tool: place In tlm
il'iv h when we went cahoots with tifi
Devil and got left.
The, only election returns available
are those of 1692 for Nobles nnd Rep
resentatives, mid of the cumulative bal
lot for delegates to the Constitution! 1
Convention of last May For the pur
poso ot this artlilo I slmll take the 10
tmuh fioni Hawaii of the (list men
tioned and tliijbc fioni this Island of the
lnltcr. tabulating t Item In such ninnnei
ns to show the relative meilts of tl'cfc
two systems and comparing tbein with
what would be tho icstilt under the sys
tem I advocate. I shall purpuselv re
frain from refeicnce to other syswnis
or even modifications of -this one In 01
dei to not eoufuse my leudcis.
I'loportional lepresentatlun Is not a
new proposition but like many other
good things It has gone unuottied fm a
long time, or. If notlied nt all, It was
dcrldnl by those who saw In Its appli
cation 11 positive lcmedy of those evils
by whliih they piospeie-il.
Applied to our local conditions tho
system would contemplate the election
of Senators and Representatives, either
nt large for the whole Hcpubllc, or by I
islands, as now provided for the etee-1
Hon of Senntors, thereby dolns nwny
with the "district" Bystem of ,'iitlr.g;
eventually it would from the very na
ture of things result In the abolition of
the Senate as well, as there would be
no need for nny further check against
unjust legislation tlinn could be found
In the house Itself by reason of Its
members being representative of all
classes having the right to vote.
The election is by a quota, the same
being ascertained by dividing the num
ber of votes east at an election by the
number of Representatives to be elect
ed- the distinguishing nnd most ex
cellent fenture of this Bystem being
that the wasted votes are reduced to 1.
minimum. The method of voting mid
style of ballot used mny be similar t 1
the Australian ballot system as con
ducted on these Islands except that
where In the present system a person
voting for Senator on this Island t.u
make up n vote for each of six candi
dates. Ily the preferential sstem he
would place numbers opposite the,
nanus of six candidates hi tho order ,
of his choice, placing the figure "1" op-J
poslte the name of the cnndldat- whom j
he most desires to see elected. "2" op-1
poslte his next best cnndldate "V
against his third choice nnd so on 10
The ballots nre not counted nun vote
determined at each polling place a
under the present system: but. en clos
ing the polls, the ballot box anil regli
ter nlo seulcil up together with i re
pent of the dny's occurrences and fo'-i
wnrded to the Registration Hun an
where the counting nnd distribution of
ballots tnkrs place.
A number of upright lettei tib-s one
for inch candidate, lire provided and
mntked each with the name of a candi
date. The distribution of the billots
Is ueeompllsbeil by placing ench ballot
on the tile of ihe cnnillrtate opposite
whose name the figure "I" Is mnrki.l
on such ballot. All the ballots luivln j
been so filed, and the totit tiumb'ri
,-ust determined, the quota Is found as
Should any of the files hold n quota
of ballots or more, the surplus If any.
Is taken from such file and distributee
over the remaining files or. second
cholic. In the same manner ns the ori
ginal distribution, the quota of ballots
Is removed from the file of the elected
candidate, placed In nn enve'ope nnd
marked with his name. I'pon distribu
tion of the surplus of those thus elected
having taking place others have .Jiclr
quota' filled by the addition of second
choice ballots and nre likewise dlspji
ed of the surplus being divided
nmong the remaining enudldati's nnd
the quota set aside as above stated.
If upon distribution of any series of
surplus ballots It should be found that
nono of the lemnlnlng candldn'es have
obtained a quota, then the pioeess
known ns elimination Is broug'it Into
play, the cnndldate 011 vvhosp ale 'lie
least number of ballots appear is drop
ped out and the ballots on his file nr"
illhttlbuted over the remaining flli-J In
like manner ns the surplus bnllots me
disposed this pioeess of election on
the one hand, and elimination on .lie
other. Is continued until thi number of
lundldntes' files remaining Is reduced
to the number remaining to be elected.
These ure declined elected by what
ever number of linllots each has 11 his
fllo nt tlm time. In this wny one or
possibly two out of a dozen lepresen
tntlvcs may get In on 11 few voln less
than the quota; but the loss will not
amount to more than live per cent of
the total vote cast, and where the con
stituency Is large not more than one
half of one per tent of the vote east
would bo thus Ineffective.
Now let us take the returns from tho
Island of Hawaii In the election '01
