How it Stueei the Native Mixd. In much of
the discussion which has been called forth by the
prosecution of certain cases under the law
against illicit cohabitation, there has been a disposition
shown to Ignore the opinions and feelings, not
to say the rights, of those who are perhaps most concerned
in the matter, namely, the native Hawaitans.
tVe present below a translation of a communication
which recently appeared In the " Lahai Hawaii."
"VVe hare reason to believe that it expresses, substantially,
thi views and feelings of a majority of
the mere intuUigent and respectable portion of the
native population, and for that reason. If for no
other. Is deserving of serious and thoughtful eon
deration from those on whom is laid the responsibility
of enforcing and executing the laws.
" Mb. Editob, I rejoice at your remarks in your
paper of last week, and tbs questions pertaining to
concubinage (moe man) (because thereby I am afforded
an opportunity of expressing my views to the
public. We agree upon the importance of putting a
atop to this immoral living, but in some respects my
conscience opposes your opinion. For, Mr. Editor,
job say " this arrest and fining is so new thing."
and cite the reports of the Department of Justice ia
' I replT, If this is true, I am more firmly fixed
than ever la declaring that this law Is unjustly

children were many and grown ; yet up to this day
they desert these (side) wives, they abandon their

sew (side) wives, and at length return to their native
lands with honor ! Yes, not even compl lined
against by the executors or the law. Therefore, Mr.
Editor, the medicine Is administered (infrequently
and unequally. Had this one-sided law been justly
execsledMrom the first, it would be wonderful bow
so many could live for more than twenty years to
this day in defiance oi its penalty. How is it possible
for yon, Mr. Editor, to restrain your indignation
that the people who brought instruction from their
enlightened countries to a race born outside of any
law of marriage, violate here the orderly living of
their nittive homes, and here trample upon the power
of the marriage law for so many years.

but these fatherless children hive no privileges at the

opinion the government should provide in some way

"Let ci wait a little, Mr. Editor," I lay. Why?
The law refuses to wait for anv one. This offense is
broadly diffused, and we agree that every offender
ehould be arrested, Why then wait? Not because

DEVOTED TO HAWAIIAN PROGRESS.
AND EDITED BY
HEX11Y M. WHITNEY".
WEDNESDAY OCTOMDER 3. 1S77.
We understand that a man named John
was lmng at the jail last Friday morning
about 8 o'clock, and tliat the crime for wliicli
lie suffered the extreme penalty of the law
We have noticed that whenever anyone feels
agrieved at anything which appears, editorially
or otherwise, in the columns of either of
our papers, or whenever anything appears
therein to which he feels disposed to reply,
he immediately rushes off to the oOirr paper
with his communication, thus implying that in
his opinion our papers are unwilling to give a
fair hearing in their own columns to any one
who may happen to differ with them. For
our own part we desire to disclaim any such
pnrpoBC or spirit in the conduct of the Gazette.
If any one wishes to reply to anything
contained in this journal, we will endeavor
to give him an opportunity to do so in
oar columns, provided his communication ia
of reasonable length, and is neither abusive on
the one hand or stupid on the other.
The subject of firing Royal salutes on Sundays
having been somewhat commented upon
of late, wo trust -we shall not be considered
deficient in due and proper respect for the
Head of the State when we Bay that we see no
good reason why the custom may not be dispensed
with. That the firing of cannon on
Sunday, for purely complimentary purposes, is
contrary to the letter of our Sunday Laws, we
are very much inclined to believe and that it
is in violation of the spirit of those laws we
European Sovereigns are accustomed at
times to lay aside their Royal State, and to
move about among their subjects with the
freedom and simplicity of other men, and
there is no reason why the Ruler of this Kingdom
may not; if he see fit, do the same. In
fact he does so. We have met His Majesty on
foot in the streets of Honolulu, and have had
the pleasure at such times of exchanging
saluations with him as with any-other gentleman.
On the occasion of His Majesty's departure
for Kauai a short tiino since, although
it was not on a Sunday, the cuBtomary salute
was omitted, doubtless in accordance with
His Majesty's wishes. Whenever, therefore,
it suits His Majesty's convenience or pleasure,
in traveling, to arrive or depart on Sunday, it
seems to us entirely practicable, as well as
eminently desirable, that he should cause it
to be understood that he lays aside for the
time being His Royal State, and waives the
formal and official recognition of his rank.
Such a course it seems to us would be a fitting
mark of respect for the day, for the laws
providing for its observance as well as for the
opinions and foelings of a large number of His
Majesty's most devoted and loyal subjecta.
We have no intention of making any extended
remarks at the present time on the somewhat
delicate, not to say unsavory, subject
which has excited so much feeling in the
community and has so greatly exercised our
neighbor the Advertiser in particular. If, as
intimated, an3 people who live in glass lrouses
have been throwing stones, they roust take
the consequences. We deem it however no
more than an act of justice to the Attorney
General to make a few suggestions, which are
Jirst. Mr. Hartwell having declared his
inteution to prosecute offenders against the
law without fear, favor, or reBpect of persons,
that declaration ought to be accepted as
made in good faith until his official acts show
to the contrary,
Second. It is the duty of all persons who
deBiro the impartial enforcement of this law
to bring to the official notice of the Attorney
General any and all violations thereof which
may be known to them, and to put him in the
way of obtaining such evidence as will enable
him to successfully prosecute tlio same
If, as has been openly asserted, men in
high social and official positions aro living in
habitual violation of tho "statute in such
cases made and provided," let the facts in
some definite and tangible shape, and backed
by some responsible parties, bo put in the
hands of the Attorney General, and tlten if he
refuses or fails to do his duty, let him be condemned,
but not before.
Third. That tho law had, by the sufferance
of tho authorities, become virtually a dead
letter may be very true, but it is equally true
that this is a state of things for which Mr.
Hartwell is not responsible, and to hold that
the failure of his predecessors to perform
tlieir duty is any reason why he should not
perform his, is neither good law nor good logic.
Since the above has been in type we have
received a communication covering to a certain
extent the aamo ground, and which we print
in another part of the paper.
To the men whom fortune has placed at tho
head of affairs in to so-called " French Republic,"
nothing seems so obnoxious as Republicanism
and Republicans. In their desperate
determination to suppress free speech
and prevent a fair expression of tho popular
will, they havo gono on from bad to worse
until their policy of suppression has culminated
in tho prosecution and conviction of the
man who may bo fairly considered the most
conspicuous representative of tho Republicans
of France. Gambetta, though a man of advanced
views and a pronounced Republican,
is by no means a " Red" and is not to be con
founded with tho crazy fanatics of the Commune.
His speech at Lille, the publication of which
was the pretext for his prosecution, was a
forcible but temperate statement of the doctrine
that tho will of the nation expressed in a
legal and constitutional manner was supreme,
and when thus expressed must be respected
and obeyed. The men at the head of affairs
must carry out the will of tho nation or make
room for those who would. This doctrine
which may be said to lie at the very foundation
of responsible parliamentary government,
and which scarcely any Englishman much
less any American would think of calling in
question is considered by the President of
the "French Republic" and his advisers, bo
dangerous and revolutionary as to entitle its
advocates to fine and imprisonment By the
same mail which brings the account of
trial, we have an account of the seizure
of co $ss than five Republican newspapers in
Paris, including Le Temps, Le France, and Le
Bien Public. It is to be hoped that the Republicans
of France will not allow the provocations
to which they are subjected to drive
them into measures illegal or revolutionary,
and thuB afford their enemies the handle against
them which they so much desire. Since the
closa of the war they have conducted themselves
in general with great moderation and
discretion, and we feel a strong hope, amounting
to confidence that they will continue to do
so in tho future, feeling sure that with the
exercise of a due degree of moderation, combined
with firmnes3, thtir futute triumph is
LETTiSR FROM JAPAN.
Kibe, Japas, Xco. 3, 1877.
Drm QiixTTE, Let me tell you what is thonght
to be the true cause of the present civil war in Japan.
Dome have said It was begun merely to get a constitutional
monarchy. This is believed to be a mere
pretext. I give an extract from a native newspaper
which is given in English in the Japan Weekly
Mall, as follows : " Satsuma (a powerful district
ia the southern part of the empire) is only
striving to attain an object that she has, at no time
lost sight of, during the past ten years. Even though
an expedition should be sent against Corea, the ob
noxious (.fficials be dismissed, or the assassination
plot proved to be groundless, they would not cease
from their present course. The position which Sat-sums
has taken, and her object in assuming it, can
be clearly traced by anyone who will glance over
past history. When Satsuma took the leading part
In the Restoration, it was not with. any strong feeling
cf respect or loyalty for the Mikado, but with
the desire of usurping the power of the Shogun, held
by the bouse of Tokugawa. We all know the faithless
manner in which Sa'suma acted previous to the
great civil war, making the most sacred alliances
with other clans, only to break them when Jt seemed
fit. At the overthrow of the house of Tokugawa the
attempted usurpation of the power of the Shognnate
was opposed by the powerful clans of Choskiu and
Toss, and also Ilisen and iligo In the Island of
ICiushiu. The present members of the Ministry who
are men of broad views, being desirous of carrying
on the administration in a liberal minded way, alto
opposed the ambition of Satsuma. But her leaders
were not to be disheartened by their obstructions,
but set to work collecting supplies of arms aod ammunition
and enlisting and drilling large bodies of
troops. Wbea the bans (the old division under the
fuedai system) were abolished, and the kens (the
districts) were established, the condition of affairs in
Satsuma remained unaltered from the fuedai times,
and thus she has been gradually preparing herself
for action, and waiting for an opportunity to declare
herself. She firt set to work to weaken all those
clans who were likely to oppose her wishes. The
powor of tboae clans being weakened, Satsuma
wrought the present great rebellion. It is a common
fact that many Satsuma men know only Shimadzu
and Saigo (their leaders), and are not aware of the
existence of the Mikado, llad these leaders not
wished the people to rise against the government
they could have taught them that there is a rightful
ruler of the country, whose authority must cot be
opposed. This they hare nut done, and hence It is
very pbin that the part they took ia the revolution
-was merely a pretext for overthrowing the house of
tokugawa. It (this war) a struggle between the
real and false upholders of the Imperial authority,
and the main object is to train the power f jrinerlr
held by Tokugawa. Truly has an ancient sage said,
that apparent sincerity veils the deepest cunning."
I think the above is a fair statement of the case ;
but General Saigo, the leader of the rebels. Is said
to be a very energetic and able man, and if he can't
overthrow the government, he may cause great expense
and trouble. It is thought $12,000,000 or $15,-000,000
have already been spent. It Is reported that
If the rebels succeed, we shall be the government.
As ever, yours, p. J. d.

Honolulu, Sept. 25, 1677.
To te Editor of the Hawaiian Gasette:
Sib, A communication on the above subject signed
Maui, in last Saturday's Adcertiier, has led me
to Inquire into what is being done by the Government
to preserve the health and save the lives of the
native population on the island of Oahu. I find
npon investigation that with the exception of the
patients provided for in the Hospital and a limited
number who come there irom outside at stated hours
to be prescribed for by the Hospital Physician, there
is absolutely no provision made by the Government
for tho medical wants or natives on. this Island. I
also find It stated In a late report of Mr. Brown, the
agent of the Board of Health, that sixty-eight per
cent, of those dying, even here in Honolulu, die
without any medical attendance whatever. Under
these circumstances it seems to me to be the duty of
the government to provide some means by which
those who are too sick to visit the Physician at the
Hospital, can be attended at their own homes. It
seems to ms also that some physician might be employed
who should at stated times make the tour of
the island and prescribe for the sick he finds on his
way. It might be said that natives who are too sick
to visit the physician ought to become inmates of the
Hospital, but we all know that in a majority of instances
they are either unable or unwilling to do so,
and could they all be Induced to go, it would be impossible
for the Hospital to accommodate them. It
is evident therefore that unless some arrangement is
made by which sick and indigent natives can be attended
at tbeir own homes, they must in a large
proportion of cases be deprived of the benefits of
medical attendance altogether. Oaho.
Honolulu, Oct. 1, 1877.
Common Sense v. Sanctimonious,
To the Editor ofthv Hawaiian Gaulle :
A correspondent in the last number of the Adcertucr,
who signs himself " Sanctuary," (it ought to have
been SanctiwuMioiu) appears to be dreadfully scandalized
at the idea of religious services having been
held in a place where " questionable amusements "
are to be found at other times. From the fact that
"Sanctuary" appears to be ignorant of any Bible
Testament or of any authority higher
than Moses and from his so carefulli abstaining from
all allusion to the precepts or example ofelther
Christ or His Apostles, one might naturally suppose
him to be a Jew ; certainly he does not write at all
like a Christian. I know the Jews however too well
to suppose any one of their number so deficient in eith.
er good manners or good sense as to write communications
to the papers criticising the times and
places which Christians .might select for their meetings.
Whoever "Sanctuary" may be and whatever
religion he may profess to be or, I feel confident that
he represents few if any, la Honolulu besides him-"&
' - COMCOS Suic.
To the Editor of the Hawaiian Gazette:
Sib, The P. C. Advertiser is rapidly developing
its position on the subject of adultery,
and reaching the logical results of the views
which it has enunciated concerning the relations
between the sexes.
In its last issue that journal takes the plain
ground that, "Here, it is ridicnlous to enforce
moral laws upon society, where the men are
so much in excess of the women." It asks,
" why it happens that the Church on the one
hand and Attorney Generals on the other,
looked on for years at adulterous liaisons in
this community without saying a word, or
taking up the culprits," declares that "in tho
late arrests, prominent offenders, white men,
were completely overlooked," and asks tho
Attorney General " howwith his scrupulous
regard for his oath of office this distinction
.was made." Neither the clergy, nor those
who have listened to them, will admit that
the Church has ignored the sin of adultery in
this country, any more than other sins. The
records of tho Courts show constant prosecutions
for adultery and illicit cohabitation, and
tho Advertiser has no more right to say that
similiar violations of law wero looked upon
as not requiring prosecution (cither by law
officer or clergy) for the simple reason that
all offenders have not been prosecuted, Nor
has the Advertiser any right to declare that
" prominent offenders, white men, were completely
overlooked," and that a distinction of
persons was made. It may be that certain
members of the comrnunity are " talked of " as
men of loose views or practices, but until
complaint is made to tho officers, and the
names of witnesses of the offence are given, no
prosecution can be instituted.
I doubt if there has ever been a case to
which the Advertistr can point, of any complaint
on which a prosecution has been refused
or stayed under any Attorney General,"
or of any distinction of persons in selecting
cases for prosecution. All have been, and all
will continue to be, prosecuted whose cases
are presented as the law requires.
It will be remembered that the views expressed
by the Advertiscy and its correspondents
on moral questions of this nature, aro not
called for by anything affecting these classes
of society who, with any regard for decency,
could appeal to the " scarcity of women," as
cause for immoral lives. Persons who could
be supposed to be so unfortunate have not
usually been able to screen their vices from
the public sight. I snspect the outcry now
made is from those who do in fact belong to
the more intelligent classes, and who, for reason
entirely distinct from those mentioned by
the Advertiser, prefer, as one of its correspondents
expresses it, "leading married lives
without the previously obtained cabalistic pnx
vobiscum. This class evidently believe that
they are aimed at, aud may next be reached,"
hence these tears.
Perhaps it is well that those who treat thus
flippantly the marriage tie should now stand
forth, muster their strength, and let it be seen
what manner of men they are, aud who they
are ! It may also as well be put to the test
now, whether, as the Advertiser says, " It is
simply untruo that the tone of society here is
as high as in New England or Old England,"
or that, " men who wero known to be habitually
immoral are complacently received in the so-called
'best society.' "
The fact is, that au attempt now for the first
time appears to be made to obtain public and
legal sanction for living married lives without
the legal marriage obligation. This is not a
plea for leniency to the parents or misfortunes
of youth, or even for the "free love " views ;
it is a undisguised defence and bold assertion
of the right to defy the moral tone or social
demands which exist in England, and in certainly
the Northern and Western States, on
the subject of marriage duties and relations.
I greatly err if those will be found by the
side of the Advertiser in theso matters, who
earnestly seek and strive for anythiug approaching
