SATURDAY. 31 AY 11, 1895
Rumors and rumors and
C. W. Asiiford and A T.
McEvoy at tlio back of them
all as usual. Every steamor
brings fresh scaro stories of
shipments of arms and mysterious
schooners and filibusters,
and peoplo swimming with
rifles between their teeth and
elsewhere. And what docs it
all amount to'? Well, wo wero
not going to givo it away; but
tlio bravo specials' still draw
this salaries, and laid-up
steamersyet earn money for
thoia owners, and the tax payer
still has to foot, .tho bills
(that' is, assisted by the" trustees
of the widows and orphans,
who invest tho trust funds in
government bonds." How
much of tho commission for
placing the bonds does Clarence
get 1 Is th'at a fair question
or is it only sarcastic comment
on our financial situation ?
Perhaps the Independent did
not have many items yesterday,
as- tho Bulletin patronizingly
suggests, yet "it covered
local news of tho previous day
and night pretty eft'octually
just the same By the way, how
is it that .neither tho Advertiser
nor tho Bulletin has
found out yot, for tho benefit
of its readcrst what the .verdict
was in tho case of Messrs.
Bush and .Nawahi, two old
public men, i who have been'
tried for conspiracy'? "-
What arc we coining to ? .Is
it possible that the revered
government 'which now sways
the destiny of Hawaii has lost
itsSonses hs well as its memory
?Do tho again
face tho condition under wbichs
thoy encountered Haley and
his mounted police, Jackson
arid his navy? It is timo for
us to dig up tho Gazettes of
188G and 1887 and reprint'tho
denunciations of W. 0. Smith
ancl L. A. Thurston against
tho extravagances of tho Gibson
Cabinet. It seams thai
tho day has cotno yhen it is
fair and just to point tho condemning
finger of history at
tho. men in power and draw
before them thoskotch of past
years, tho pictura of corruption
simful waste and revolution,
raised, by themselves.
Wo are told to-day that the
Treasury has anearly unlimited
balanco on hand. ' YVo aro'told
that Hawaii now possesses
her strongest and her very
best government.- (wo havo
beqn told that overy timo the.
reform party went into power),
and wo are assured that, bar-y
' ring a few irresponsible . malcontents,
tho tax - payors of
Httwaii.sit .in union assembled
and vociferously applaud tlio
doings of Mr. Dolo and company.
But if an indopondopt'f emissary
of tho said combination
should stroll along the street,
and enter into cOnvorsation
with some of tho most prominent
tax-payers, ho would learn
that everything is- iibt quite
serene, and the economy 'of tho
government is not exactly
admired -or sot 'up for special
workship. Th'eso grumblers
have no ill-feeling against tho
government. Thoy have no
axe to grind, but thoy aro aw-
fully.curious. They want to
know why W. 0. Smith at all
times derided - tho mounted
police, and declared that there
was absolutely no necessity for
such a branch of tho force, and
that wholo affair' from
Haley's .to -Wilson's days was
a swindle' and an unjust burden
on tho tax-paver. Mr
Atkinson, .the brilliant editor
in thoso days of. the Hawaiian-Gazette,
burlesqued . on Haley
and his "cavalrp," and the
songs, about Horsoy do Corn-bin
,;and 'others wero aspopular
as are tho Gayety girl's' songs
' But how about now, Mr.
Smith and Mr. Atkinson.
Look at our Hawaiian cavalry
and our much uniformed
and .. moustached generals I
When and nvhere did tho
arrived to saddle the
treasury with a heavy expense
and horses with a lot 'of swag-goring,
-But let rus leave the cavalry
alone. Let us turn to the now
'navy'"' Shades of thd
where aro wo drifting
to? . Whero is tho', minstrel
trou'po wlio!lltplacotho poor
old Lehua. on the stage and
ahoY(UB Sanders and his prow
sailing out in 'search of what?
Fancy tho depleted .treasury
making ' an appropriation to
pay for a laid - up steamor
which :"cpuldn't overtake an
everyday Dutch fishing-smack,
leave alone u full -, fledged
opium, or filibustering yacht.
It looks lik'o'a job and th,o
government organs, should
liurry up and explain the reasons
v of ths chartering of
the Tlio tax-payer
doesn't believo rmuch in such
expenditures or in Ashford's
filibustering expeditions. Ash-ford
in a private letter, received
by a citizen in Honolulu by
tho Alameda; ridicules tho filibustering
rumors and says (excuse
his peculiar language). "I
wonder if thoso chumps think
wo' aro as-foolish as:therasolves
to givo them notice of tho
timo andplaco of tho sailing
of our oxcursion." . To believe
then that tho Lohua should
find. or meet such an eventual
oxcursion, which surely hasn't
tatted as yet, seems to border
on tho ridiculous.
But, say our' authorities,' wo
aro after opium and not at all
after Ashford and his crew.
Ifthat is so, wo aro sorry to
say that tho government is
still mpro blamable. It cannot
fbp any secret to tho authorities
that opium loday is cheap-
H. E. WIclNTYRE & BR0.,
-IMPORTERS AND- DEALEB8 '1-
cr than it over was boforo, and
tho deduction from that fact is
plain. Opium is plentiful. Tho
country is swamped with it.
No considerable seizure has
been made sinco tho presont
government went into office.
The dopo has boon landed
all along a, somebody must
bo "to blam,c. Wo mean
somebody in authority?. TJio
Custom House is overworked.
Its' employees aro
either having vaceations or
importnt missions in
report cannot bo gotten up,
but. tho opium can find time
and place to come in; The
junketing expedition of tho
Lohua is an outrage on the
tax-payers. Save tho 1Q;000
appropriated for that opium
seeking excursion and spend
$10, to learn how it is and
why it is that Hawaii, is flood
ed with tho contraband stun"
and oven tlio old timers aro
sick of dealing in it.
It is about timo that
the legislature was called.
There may be- one independent
man in it who will
not bo afraid to ask, "Whither
all we drifting ?"
