It has just one single object, and
tnst is to protect Hawaiians and
foreigners com Chinese
in the trades. If it is passed,
lairs restricting Chinese to agricultural
employments can be enforced.
If it is not v&ssed, snch laws will
be a dead letter. This is the case
in a nutshell: Do mechsrnrs;i
and tr&d&TB wish. Chinese competition
or not ? If they do, friends
oi mechanics and traders will
tnow Low they have to vote in the
Hbsse. The Issue is plain; It is
on this point alone, and it cannot
Jest one argument against this
bill bss bn advanced. In order
to be jest and iair. the bill proposes
to register everybody, not
Chinese aloes, and the enemies of
will sebmlt to be resistered. tfr?

dignity ef 2. rr;sn and a freeman--

to voie, sad taink It no grievance.
We are ail registered whenever
the eeasas eamcexstor comes
sroend. The direory registers
es. sad we do not make the
besTens sisz ita cut eonmlslms.
Ix is expected that the Appropriation
bill will be sigued and
presented to the House this morn-ins:.
This will leave about thirtv
bills undisposed of. Some of these
will probably never be reported,
others can be killed on sight. If
the House is diligent and holds
night sessions a prorogation might
be reached within a week.
Ths reasons which moved Her
Majesty cot to sign the Immigra
tion Act have been communicated
to the Cabinet, and also given to
the public. Bv these it appears
that she was in full sympathy with
the objects of the bill, and that her
scruples were of a legal nature
merely, being based upon certain
points of constitutional, or supposed
constitutional law. As the Cabinet
advised the Queen to sign the bill.
we are compelled to infer that she
has some other legal adviser besides
TEB HEGISTS1T10S ACT.
The Kegistration Act is coming
up for consideration again this
morning, and Eep. Ashford is out
on the war path armed with a
deadly amendment which is warranted
to kill the bill if it is given
the chance. The bill, for the Dur-
pose of identifying Chinese laborers,
provKies :or a general registration
of the entire male population. Mr.
Ashford's amendment proposes to
exempt from the provisions of the
Act all laborers to be broacht into
the Kingdom under the provisions
of the new Labor law. This will
in prccuce nullify the whole bill,
as no one knows better than Mr.
Ashford himself, who has been a
consistent opponent of the measure
from the beginning.
If experience teaches anything,
it teaches that laws which have a
special reference to Chinese are ut
terly unless accompanied
bj some system of identifying the
Chinaman. There is no use in
providing th3t Ah Sam shall not
work st the carpenter's trade, if
Ah Sam can say his name is not
i r ii
.aji cam, out xtmg w o. A. system
of registration which does not register
everr sinsie Chinese in the
Kingdom will register nobody at
all to any purpose, and misrht as
well be abandoned before it is begun.
Universal registration is the
sole cooditioato identification, and
"sriihoat identification no laws can
be enforced against Chinese, as
every lawyer knows. Mr.
amendment must, therefore,
be rejected if the bill is to be
jjnsx 2nd essy to be borne in all J dr
these old instances, hut vexatious,
oppressive and unendurable as
proposed in this bill?
The truth is, that whether the
Government shall or shall not
"keep track" of the citizens is ti
question of political expediency
simply. It does not offer occasion
for any declamation about the
rights of man. If there is a sound
reason of state for putting our
names down in a Government
book, why, let us go and put our
names down like good citizens and
sensible men, and make no more
fuss about it.

2Jarder, Suicide and Stabbing
The quiet of the last two weeks
seems to have been the calm that
precedes the storm, for during the
past seven days we have had a
murder and suicide, a stabbing affray
and a lively Christmas celebration.
Last Sunday two Japanese laborers
at Kipahulu celebrated the
Sabbath by frequent and heavy indulgences
in the flowing bowl.
Toward 5 or 6 o'clock in the afternoon
the "load" they had on board
mounted to their heads, and after
a sugnt altercation one arew a
knife and stabbed his chum several
times in the arm. Dr. T.
Allen dressed the wound, which
was quite serious, but when Sheriff
Reuter asked the Japanese for his
assailant's name and the cause of
the quarrel he became as silent as
the proverbial oyster. As all efforts
to induce his countrymen to
give any information were futile,
the case had to be dropped.
On Monaay, the 26th mst, quite
a trasedv was enacted at Hana.
A Japanese laborer most brutally
butchered a Japanese woman and
then took his own life. Facts are difficult
to obtain in the case as all the
Japanese are very lose-mouthed
over the affair. As near as can be
learned, however, the feud is one
of some week's standing. It seems
that the man became infatuated
with the woman, but she, being the
wife of a contract laborer, did not
reciprocate. This so enraged the
muraerertnat several weecs ago,
meeting her on the Government
road, he beat her with his fist in a
shocking manner. The woman
had him arrested and he was fined
20. .After this everything ran
smoothlv till Monday afternoon.
when, meeting his victim in the
Japanese quarters, he attacked her
with a cane knife which he was
carrying. The woman screamed
for help, and several of her friends
ran up to her, but the man
threatened io chop them all up,
and as tnev were unarmed thev
ran away. He gave his victim one
more biow, which almost severed
her head from her neck. Then he
dashed into the canefield below
the quarters with the police, who
had by this time arrived, In close
pursuit. When found, however, he
had cut his own throat and was
dead. The woman's wounds were
carefnlly dressed and every care
lavished upon her, but the chances
of recovery are extremely doubtfuL
Her name is Omitzi, and that of
her assailant Xamoto Kozdichi.
Mr. Oscar TJnna entertained his
friends at KIpahulu on Christmas.
In the morning a shooting match
was held at the IGpahnlu Kifle
Kange. It wa a sweepstake and
was won by Mr. Stranch. All the
scores were small, as a very high
wind interfered seriously with good
markmanship. After the match
-Sir. Lnnaand his guess repaired
to his house, where all sat down to
a most sumptuous Christmas dinner.
Everything the most fastidious
palate could desire was there.
and the ample justice all did to
the good things provided was a
sincere compliment to the skill of
.sir. unnas chef de cuiane.
After the dinner a band of musicians
whiled away the hours, and
and all departed with three hearty
cheers for the givers of the entertainment.

The Wailuku people had all the water
they want now for domestic and other
purposes. It was folly for the Govern

Xoble Hand also opposed the bill.
Eep. Ivanealii was not in favor of

Xoble Cornwell favored the passage
of the bill: SS977 had been expended

no kuleana. The appropriation of
$15,000 passed this session is sufficient
to supply Wailuku andKahului with

from Wailukn were divided on the
subject. Xoble Walbridge opposed,
while Noble Cornwell favored.

Ashford as follows:
Question 1. The department has received
no information of this fact from
Her Majesty's Minister Plenipotentiary
at Washington, but, under date of
December 21, Son. F. S. Pratt writes
announcing the receipt by him of the

P. S. Pratt, Hawaiian Consul General,
Exequatur granted, 17th; papers

Question 2. In connection with

Pratt as Consul-General at San Fran
cisco torlisKxcellency J. Mott-Smith,
at Washington, on .October 19, with
instructions to procure the exequatur

a dispatch from His Excellency the

17, His Excellency states that the

Her Majesty's Consul-General in San

course win not embarrass Mr. Pratt
in his official functions, as I can notify

A great many" people imagine
that they have seen the reflection
in the sky from some volcanic glare
to the southward. Tho nights have
been unaccountably light during
the dark of the moon. Now, of
course, the moonlight is so bright
that the lesser illuminations are
uh-noticed. At about midnight of
Thursday, the 22d, the elite of Ko-
hala were awakened by an earth
quake. It was strong enough to
make the glassware jingle, though
no subterranean noise accompanied
it. Almost immediately afterwards
a second slight tremor was felt.
We had just got asleep again when
still another considerable shock
was felt, though not quite so violent
as the first.
The Halawa Mill Co. had some
cane injured by fire last week.
The fire was accidentallv communi
cated to the cane from some fires
lighted to clear off a new piece of
land near by. They have started
grinding the damaged cane and
the loss will not be much. Union
Mill began grinding on Tuesday,
the 27th. It sounds familiar to
hear the mill whistles calling for
cane. The rumor of the failure of
Aseu and Akina was hardly correct
This firm, feeling the pressure
of hard times, sold out to the
Niulii Mill Company.
Christmas festivities were of the
usual order. There were cifts ex- i
changed, and Christmas trees were
set up in the various parlors, and
stockings were hung up, and there
were family reunions and all kinds
of delightful events that belong to
tins season ot the year. One of the
pleasantest of our public affairs,
was the Chinese bunday School
Chnstmas tree. Miss Tnrner who
so ably fills the position of Principal
in the Chinese School at
has charge of the Sunday
School in which she has good
helpers in the persons of Miss
Hoppin, Miss Powers, Mr. Yone
Shun, the Dastor. Mr. Yon BlaisdeH.J
and others. The ChinPSP pb,Mm 5d?fa.O
from all this district were there,
and acquitted themselves admirably.
The church was decorated
with Chinese lanterns and iliumin;
ated screens, and paper-work that
was a marvel of ingenuity. There
was a great feast of candies and
cakes and fruits, and a great deal
of joyous noise and gleeful chatter.
As it was a rainy night, and many
of them came long distances, these
made a night of it in the church,
and awoke refreshed and cheerful
for a church service in the morning,
and a pleasant journey homeward
in the Christmas sunshine.
The foreign church was beauti
fully decorated on Christmas
morning. A large five-pointed
star of lilies was at the hardr nf
the church above the pastor a
Deautiiui ana appropriate emblem.
Pulpit and choir railing were
wreathed with maile, and there
were ferns and foliage and flowers.
The pastor, Mr. Oatrom, gave us an
appropriate sermon, and the sing
ing was exceptionally good ; there
two heanHfnl dnnWa ..-
arranged for ladies' voices, but the
finest part of the service wa3 the
full chorus "Brightest and JW "
arranged by Buck. The closing
hymn was grand old Antiocb, in
which the audience heartily joined,
making a most happy close to a
beautiful Christmas service. There
was a larger audience than usual
present, among whom were Mis3
Helen Wilder and her cousin, Miss
Lita Wilder, now on a visit with
friends and relatives here, as ia also
Miss Hasainger, of Honolulu.
