"After a tediously long process of incuba
tion, there came forth from the new Board an
entirely new corps of local school agents
and treasurers to supersede thoso who had
been, previously, in large measure of the Mis
sionary faith ; and the striking thing ia the
new agents was the relation they bore to good
morals and religion. With rare exceptions,
they were grossly immoral men, and where of
tolerable reputation for morals, the redeeming
trait was found in an undisguised hostility to
the Missionaries, and to the religion they
preaehed. The rule was no moderate-miDded
man should hold the office of local accnt : and
to this the exceptions were few and for special

cation published in the P. C. Advertiser,
April 17th, headed in largo letters, "a
plain statement of. facts by an American
Missionary." " There came forth from the
new Board an entirely new corps of
Local School Agents and Treasurers."
Let it be remembered that the law which
had gone into operation, consolidated these
two offices together.
The list of persons appointed, in Octo
ber, 16C5, under the law then recently
passed was as follows. The name3 in the
outside column are those which have been
substituted for the gentlemen, first appoint
ed in the District, against which they aro
placed, the others remaining the same, as

The total number of Local School
Agents, is therefore twenty -four. Of
these Kicirr or one-third, were continued
in the hands of those who held either the
office of Superintendent or Treasurer be
fore the passage of the law, viz., Messrs.
Spencer, Manuia, Nui, Moffitt, Knndsen,
for two districts, Rev. J. AV. Smith, M.D.
and Isenbere:. Two of the elder Mission
aries, not having actual charge of congre
gations, and who had acted for the old
Board as Treasurers, were asked to act,
but declined on account of years, Rev. Ar
tema3 Bishop and Bev. D. B. Lyman ; the
last gentleman gave as another reason, the
pressure and confining nature of his duties,
in the Boarding School at Hilo ; therefore
Haleluhi was appointed for Puna- This
gentleman had been returned by his dis
trict, as Representative in the Legislature,
and therefore had their endorsement, and
was succeeded by Judge Kaina, who is
certainly the wealthiest, and most intelli
gent man in his district, and a staunch
supporter of the Congregational Church,
in Puna, Hawaii. Mr. Spencer having
left Kau, Mr. Thomas Martin, was ap
pointed in his place; the remarks above
made of Mr. Kaina, are applicable to Mr.
Martin in all respects ; each had perform
ed the duties of Magistrate in his district,
for many years. Mr. Kenway was super-

appointed in his plao- None of the
Board know, particularly, what Mr. Mahe
Iona's habit is, about going to church, but
judging from his public addresses, he
I appears to be a great admirer of the
I Congregational Clergy. At Koolaupoko,
Major C. H. Judd, (the son of a promi
nent Missionary Dr. G. P. Judd), who
represents this district in the Legislature,
and consequently has the endorsement of
their votes, was appointed.
On Kauai: at Koolau, Mr. Xouhiwa
was superceded, Oct. 17th, 18G7, by Mr.
A- Wilcox, an American Missionary.
Then the summing up is thi3. Out of
twenty-four districts, eight stood as they
were before, and seven do now so stand ;
Mr. Spencer having retired from Kau, and
Mr. Martin being substituted for him. Of
the new appointments, two are son3 of
Missionaries, one is himself a Missionary,
two are the staunchest supporters of the
Congregational Churches, in their district,
Kaina at Puna, and Martin at Kan, two
are very pronounced supporters of them,
Mr. Lowers, at "Wailukn, Maui, and Mr.
Mahelona at Ewa, Oahu ; making fourteen
out of the twenty-four. OT the remain
ing ten, two are in charge of the gentle
man, who has been for fifteen yeara Govern
or of Maui, whose activity, enterprise and
influence for good, among his countrymen
are unbounded ; against whom, in his offi
cial or social character, no one ever breath
ed a word, and who, certainly, is quite
"moderate-minded" ; and one is in charge of
tho Secretary of the Board, who was-him-
self, brought up under Congregational influ
ences, lit3 parents being members of the
Fort Street Church ; and one is vacant by
the death of SherifT Neville. In Hana,
Maui, one in is charge of a Danish gentle
man, of high intelligence, Mr. Unna, who
succeeded Rev. Mr. Bishop, under the
circumstances above mentioned ; and who
wasjhimself brought up in tho Lutheran
Church and certainly ha3 no " hostility"
towards the views and principles, repre
sented by American Missionaries. Mr.
Naiapaakai, at North Kohala. has certain
ly, not the good fortune to enjoy the
regard and esteem of the Reverend Mis
sionary gentleman, resident for so many
years, in his district The remaining four,
are Mr. Greenwell at North Kona, Ha
waii ; Mr. Halemanu, at Hamakua, Ha
waii ; Mr. Meyers, at Molokai ; Mr. Ander
son, at "Waialna, Oahn. If any one knows
anything against any one of them, it ha3
not reached the Board. They will come
under the rule of having "a tolerable rep
utation for morals," to say the least of it,
and are not known to entertain any hos
tility to any one, much Ies3 to " Mission
aries, or the religion which they preach ;"
Mr. Halemanu has had the votes of his
district, for their Representative, and may
therefore be assumed to represent their
average morality, and average intelligence,
to say the least of it. Mr. Meyers is bring
ing up a very large family, in a most unex
ceptionable manner, and sets an example
of industry, thrift and kindness to his
neighbors modesty and uprightness well
worthy of imitation. The other two have
not large families, but all other remarks
that have been made, regarding Mr. Meyers
are certainly applicable to them. Then,
by the record, it appears :
S. H. Mahuka, who succeeded Manuia,
at South Kohala, was nominated and con
firmed on the recommendation of Rev.
Mr. Lyons, the veteran Missionary of that
district, ne is a very strong supporter
and reliable friend of Mr. Lyons.

thing should have been written to call for
such a defence, and lead me to feel that
justice to my own name, called upon me to
vindicate tnvself in the same journal, and to
the same readers who had read its derogatory
remarks about me. This, I had done, be
fore I saw the Gazette of this week. I
regret the occasion, both as regards myself,
and those who have assailed me. I desire to
write when I do write of principles and
policy, without personal feeling or personal
ity, either with regard to myself or any one
else, and my object now Is, to further vindi
cate our system of labor and show that how
ever It may be In other countries, the law re
quiring employees, as well as employers, pe-
cificdll'j, to fulfil their contracts, is a necessa
ry, and a good one, here; that there Is no
oppression In It to the laborer; that It re
quires of him only to be bonest and do right,
which ought not to be a hardship, and, that
it would tend to paralyze the induttrial Inter
ests of the country, which lie at the founda
tion of all its other interests, and be no bless
ing, but a curse to the laborers themselves,
were it repealed.
The great staple of these islands is sugar,
and its production is attended with a very
heavy expense of labor, both In growln? the
cane and its manufacture Into sugar, and. In
order to embark in it, there, must be some
reasonable assurance that the requisite labor
can be relied upon. If this cannot be, no
one can embark in it with safety, and this
almost only branch of productive industry
must fail. The law comes In here to assis
the producinginterests, and makes labormorc
reliable, by requiring every able-bodied man
to -work, who agrees to do so. He is at per
fect liberty to agree to work or not; but if be
agrees to work, and is able to do so, but re
fuses, the law treats him as a delinquent
as dishonest, for refusing to do right,
does not allow him or them to refuse to work,
to the injury and perhaps ruin, of their em
ployer, and he to have no redress except to
sue them for damages. Tho law is rendered
the more essential here as the making advan
ces, to laborers, who are generally the hold
ers of less property than the law exempts
from seizure for debts, compels the employer
to give a credit of some thirty or forty dol
lars to each man, without any show or pros
pect of payment except by his services, and
if he were not legally bound to render the
terrice agreed vpon, it would make labor,
which is so essential, so uncertain, that no
man would dare to enter upon an enterprise.

The abrogation of this law would tend to
the breaking np of all of our industrial
enterprises, and every other; all being de
pendent on these, it would paralyze our
prosperity. For example : the laborer would
be without employment; he would raise
his kalo, and catch his fish from the sea
to feed himself; but where, and in what,
could he find any regular employment to
clothe and feed himself and his family, to
gather about him any of the comforts of civ
ilization, brought by the Christianity which
he has learned. To supply his food, might
occupy one third of his time; the remaining
two-thirds, he would be without any certain
or regular employment, and would be taking
lessons in the school of indolence and vice.
Would this be a blessing to him J Would It
not be a curse i Under the present law. sus
taining the present system, one-Vtird of the
population finds constant employment In rais
ing food for the teliole, while the other two
thirds find constant employment in raising cane
for the export of 6ugar, which brings in re
turn, all the necessaries, and many of the
comforts and luxuries of life. A ready mar
ket for the surplns food raised by those en
gaged in this business, is found in the wants
of those otherwise employed, and the pro
ceeds from the sales, go to contribute to their
comfort in various ways, and enable them to

wish to do so; and 60 the wages of the plan

The benefit to the whole coasting business
is as direct, for without the plantations,
whence would come the fifteen or twenty
thousand tons of freight, which sustains this
interest, Other Interests, though less direct
ly, are not less really benefitted, than those
named. To illustrate: an owner of cattle,
before the plantation era was Inaugurated,
sold many of his cattle for five dollars a head,
or for their hideB and tallow ; after this era,
he sold two hundred head at twenty dollars
a piece, for butchering and working cattle.

of the material prosperity of the country.
gives work to the laborer on land, and
the coaster on the sea; to tho mechanic
and builder, to the machinist and engi
neer, the carpenter, blacksmith and wheel
wright, to the sngar-boiler; to the capitalist,
the use of his funds in establishing enterpris
es, and in building vessels to carry the freight;
to the merchant, the sale of his goods, by
giving to others the means of buying; and
these enterprises so important to the coun
try's prosperity, cannot be established or car
ried forward without 6ome assurance, some
degree of certainty of procuring the labor,
which is their life, and the law which helps
this end without inflicting individual -wrong,
which only requires what is right, is a bles
sing to all concerned.
It seems to me then, that the specific con
tract law, here at least, is necessary and good,
whatever it may be elsewhere, and In other
countries; that without it, labor cannot be
made sufficiently reliable to warrant those
enterprises 60 essential to our prosperity.
But is it oppression ? Docs not every la
borer who agrees to work, do so voluntarily,
and for his own Interest ? Is his superior or
overseer allowed to strike him one blow with
impunity? Is he over-worked, abused. Ill
fed, or hardly-used ? There is but one kind
of constraint that may force him to agree to
work, and that is: without working, being
without means, he may feel compelled to
work or starve; but having made bis agree
ment voluntarily, or even under 6uch con
straint, having received his advance upon the
faith of services to be rendered, ought he not
to be required to fulfil his part of the con
tract If he is able? If be is disposed to be
so dishonest as to refuse, should not the law
aid the employer in securing his right? Is
there any oppression, or slavery, or forced
servitude in this, more than in any other dis
honest man being restrained for his offences?
If he Is put under restraint, does it bear any
analogy to what is called Imprisonment for
debt? If he suffers, it is for dishonesty.
The man who would have the benefit of that
humane provision of the law, which exempts
the debtor from Imprisonment, must be hon
est, or must appear so. Let him be found
concealing or covering up his means, let his
dishonesty be proved, and how does the law
treat him ? As a swindler, and as a criminal.
And does not the law shut him up for his
dishonesty, it need be ? And would a law,
conniving, by its impracticable provisions,
for any redress to the employer against the
laborer who had taken his money, but re
fused to fulfil his obligations, promote public
morals or prosperity?
The United States has special laws for sea
men. Whoever ships for the voyage must
not desert his ship, however often the mas
ter maybe changed without good reason.
That special service calls for special laws, to
promote a general good. In the law there is
no tyranny, no slavery. So do our peculiar
circumstances call for just the laws which
exist, without which thegreatindnstryof the
nation, essential to Its vitality might perish
and die. I do not claim that abuses may not
and do not sometimes occur, under them, as
-well as under the marine laws of the United
States, but I think I have shown that they aro
necessary, and they are just, that they are
not tyranlcal or oppressive, but eminently
fair and equal in their operation, and if so,
he who does any thing to unsettle the sys
tem which they sustain, unless he can re
place It by a practical one that is better, does
a great public wrong, however sincere his
convictions may be. The proceeds of all the
sugar crops on the Islands reach a very large
sum annually, which is expended
the different industrial and commercial
pursuits of the Islands. Let ns con
trast this with the sltaatlon twenty-five years
ago, wheu wages were not more than one-
half or two-thirds wtat they are at present,
when very few could command regular em
ployment at any price, because it was not to
be had, and indolence was a necessity, be
cause as yet none of tie important industries
ol the islands had sprung into life, and then
consider, whether it is not a grave matter to
do or write or say any thing, tending to
break up or unsettle the system under which
such progress has been developed.
Let the Evoloa, and the Au Okoi, the Ga
zette, the Adtcrt'uer and the Friend do any
thing to promote. general intelligence and
religious and moral truth, let them emulate
each other in doing good, and I can sincere
ly bid them all, God speed, bnt let any of
them, instead of these, instil principles ten
ding to overthrow the mild and just system
under which thfc nation has so prospered in
its agriculture and commerce, and they will
curse instead of bles3 the people, they will
sow tares instead, of wheat, they will sow
the wind and reap to the whirlwind. Mr.
Editor, I desire to Bee peace and prosperity
prevail in tie laud, and most sincerely hold
ing the views upon this labor question which
I have expressed, I believe that to unset
tle our present system will be highly adverse
to the best interests of the country. I hope
that all who think differently' will consider
well before they propagate ideas on this sub
ject which itay result In great injury or ruin.
Hoping to be guided to right results, in all
of our inquiries,
I remalr, respectfully yours,
Sam'l N. Castle.
Editor of the Uateailan Gazette Dear Sir:
A few individuals, if they only set about
it, are capable of making a great deal of noise.
I lave known two or three cats too make such
a din in the ni'ht time, that one who did not
know the nature of the animal, would con
jecture that there were at least a thousand
of them, howlbg to the full extent of each
individual capacity. So, when listening to
the ravings of individuals, or small coteries,
on some favorite topic of public policy, I
have thought that it must be the voice of
the whole community, and have felt myself
rieved, from mere sympathy created by
the din, as a person will partake of the en
thusiasm of an Individual or a crowd, when
such Individual or crowd is really in earnest.
Then, I have gone to my cool friend, who
never gets excited, and communicated to him
my fears. He invariably meets me with a
pitying smile, and requests to know where
I got my information. My reply, at first, is :
"Everybody says so." Again he smiles, and
tells me that I am mistaken ; everybody does
not say so he does not, for one, and he
asks me again who told me. I answer him
that no one told me, personally, but I heard
so-and-so, and so-snd so, and so-and-so, say
so, at the ; and that I further heard
that the whole town Is excited about it, and
I am afraid that serious difficulty may arise
out of it My cool friend here smiles again,
and, if possible his smile Is more pitying
than before. "My dear fellow," says he,
take my advice, and don't listen to those
people, because you will always be misled
by them. Ton know it is their business, as
well as their great pleasure, to be constantly
excited themselves, and to try to excite
others, upon matters which really do not
aflcctthem,and will Injure no one." "But,"
I say, "this is really serious; the whole
town Is alive with it. Lookl there iroes
; see how he is shaking his
head. I'll ' bet' he Is going to leave on the
first vessel, unable longer to suffer the petty
annoyances to which he is subjected by a

very cool, bnt exceedingly patient with me.
is about to further quiet my fears, when the
earnest personage suddenly pauses in his
rather rapid career, wheels upon his heel,
and approaches us for my friend is also his
friend or, rather, he bears much, I fear,
with both of us. nc is still shaking his
head, and oh how mysterious-looking, as if
full of something of great importance to
struggling humanity. He pantingly lays his
hand upon the shoulder of my friend, and
feelingly asks him if he has heard the news,
and proceeds immediately with half whis
pering and frightened ejaculations: "It's
sir! scandalous! It's dangerous, 6irl
daogerous! I can't stand it, sir! Shamefnl!
shameful I! I'm going to I "But,"
says my friend, "What is it, Mr. ? I
don't understand you. nag anyone taken
any honey out of your hive? or, perhaps,
meddled with your bees ?" "Oh, no, not
that," says he. "It's not that, sir! It's the
country, sir! the country going to ruin, sir!
Yon may suffer it, if you like. I can't, sir!
no, sir! I'm going to le ." Here a gentle
man walks up who is known tobeln the mar
ket for alarge assortment of general merchan
dise, whereupon the earnest man, who, If
ho Is alive to anything, is alive to a trade, im
mediately leaves my friend and button-holes
the trader, and producing the order-book,
which he always carries ready to jot down
any orders he may receive, forgets his wrongs,
and, ejaculating with the same vehemence,
in the same tone, "First-rate article, sir! my
own Importation, sir! selected It myself, sir!
and very cheap, sir! the cheapest and best in
town !" and thns leaves the public busines to
attend to his own, most efficiently. I say to
my friend, rather exnltingly, " I should think
you would believe me, now, as I have the
testimony of the earnest man to substantiate
my assertion," He replies that the views
of bis acquaintance, outside of trade are
not always sound, and that the less I
listen to the vaporings of those parties, the
better it will be for my peace of mind, and
even intimates that he has known weak
minded persons (it Isn't possible that he
meant to class me with them), who became
quite insane and troublesome, merely from
over-anxiety about other people's affairs,
when, along comes the outspoken and un
daunted Vindicator of the people's rights, and
asks, indignantly, Have you heard of it?"
My friend confesses that he hasn't. Where
upon the outspoken and undaunted Vindi
cator exclaims: "I have forborne from
exposing the corruptions of the administra
tion so long, that I fear that I have fallen far
short of my duty to the people. But I shall
do so no longer. This last aggression on
the rights of the 'governed demands, and
shall receive in the next lssnc of the 'Indi
cator of the People's Demands,' tho notice
It deserves. I shall expose to the fullest ex
tent the double dealing, treachery, and false
hoods ot the pampered minions of power. I
have the proofs for all I shall assert at hand.
After day next, I would like to see how
they will dare to hold up their heads in an
incensed community." This time my friend
smiled sarcastically, and merely remarked
that he pitied them. Thinking of it after
wards, I conld not decide whether It was the
people, as defended by the Vindicator, the
minions, or the Vindicator, that he pitied.
The outspoken man then left, no donbt to
breathe his scorn of a corrupt government
In other cars. My excitement had arrived at
that pitch, by this time, that I could not talk
coherently, but I could listen. In fact, I
actually devoured every word that was said
In disparagement of the authorities, by whom
I bad been, as I considered, so deeply
wronged. I therefore heard, with great sat
isfaction, the Defiant Foreigner.
The Defiant Foreigner is, as everybody
knows, a very important personage partic
ularly in his own estimation. He has lived
in this country say a very long time. He
has been successful in business. He is dic
tatorial In enforcing bis opinions upon others.
He Is patronizing to those whom he considers
to be bis inferiors; sycophantic to those
whom he knows to be his superiors, ne
makes, a great show of charity. He speaks
frequently of knocking people down, though
fortunately, perhaps, he never strikes any
body. Yearning for a place where he can
have a hand In the conduct of public affairs,
and not being able to obtain it, he assumes
to entertain the most supreme contempt for
this country, which be stigmatizes as a d d
government, nc affects to be patriotic, and
characterizes all who speak well of things
here, if they are his conntrymcn, as traitors;
if not, ie calls them "tuft-hunters," and
asks, "what more could be expected from a
d d sycophant."
This Defiant Foreigner exclaimed, as he
approached my friend, with eyes flashing,
face fluslecl and defiant " port," Isn't this
beyond endurance! This d d Govern
ment is undertaking to brow beat and
override every body. It was only this morn
ing that Mr. felt it his duty to tell the
Minister of that he had done very wrong,
in a certain matter. What do yon think the
told 3Ir. . Why he told him to
mind his ow n business ; and that If be wanted
ny of his cdvice he wonid ask him for it!
That's aprei.ty answerfor such a to make
to a man Ilk e Mr. . I wish he'd have
told me that,. I'd have knocked him down,
and they mljrht have made a diplomatic affair
of It, if they liked, I am not a subject of the
d d government. I'm not afraid of any of
them ! He re the Defiant Foreigner, seeing a
man who h,id lately been unfortunate in
business, and who had, by the assistance ol
friends, star t td in a small way to earn bread
for his family, pointed towards him and said,
' Look at tl ia t fellow ! If I were in his place.
would bo ashamed to show my head! He
is Just as '''cheeky" and impudent, as
though he had never squandered other peo
ples money. This place will never be re
spectable so long as such people arc permit
ted to do tho business, that honest people
ought to do." Just at this time a person,
verymnch 3n need of funds, for immediate
use, cominrr up, accosted the Defiant
Foreigner; thi it Individual retired with him,
no doubt on an errand of mercy and charity,
such as is sbown, at 5 per cent per month
with good security. This time my friend's
smile was one at contempt. I even heard him
mutter, " feUo w" and "self-conceited, empty
headed puppy," and several other things.
which, if they -were intended to apply to the
Defiant Forei gner, were not calculated to im
press one wlih the idea that my friend had an
exalted opinio n of him. The Dignified Non
committal man; the Enterprising and Politic
man and the Excessively Intelligent man call
each in his tn rn. The Dignified and Non
committal man says that some of the people
Eeem Incensed, and leaves It, at that, pre
pared for popn Iarlty, from any quarter. The
Enterprising and Politic man, says that if he
thought it would be beneficial to the com
munity, be would immediately set measures
on foot, which would relieve the public from
such annoyances in future, and takes credit
to himself for I til the possibilities. The Ex
cessively Intell igent man satisfies himself by
merely asking-, "What can be expected from
such a 6et of "chucklehcads?" My friend
quietly remarks, that things do not seem to
be In a dcspciate state, and taking all thing
into consideration, we ought to be thankful
for the peace and prosperity we enjoy; that
we are never interfered with, or disturbed to
our detriment, and if It were not for the few
dlscontended tind fault-finding people, who
sometimes tcia.ke such a noise, that one
would think toe whole town In an uproar.
we might indeed say that we lived In the
Paradise of 1he Pacific. I always believe
what my friend says, and do not see why I
should not belli rve this as well as other things,
no more reasonable, which he tells me.
