THAT CORONATION, A RELIGIOUS
In one of the organ's editorial articles, this
week, on " the table of domestic exports," we
find interjected this curious paragraph. ''This
is the record of the country in which cu'ij
thing is going to the dogs, because Gibson and
Hush, Kaat and l'reston are the King's .Min
isters ; and because His Majesty ami the repre
sentatives of the people think it desirable that
the religious service of a coronation should be
added, to the ciil forms by which lie was
installed upon the throne." Our versatile Pre
mier, (or Primate is lie?) is pulling another
string in this puppet farce. "His Majesty
nnd the representatives of the people think it
desirable," and so on, Whose thought is it?
Ask Ihc people if they want Kalakaua
crowned. Ask the new spapcrs, nativ e or for
eign, the true representatives and exponents of
public opinion, if the organ does not misrepre
sent the people in advocating the desirability
of a coronation. Ask I lis Majesty, if the idea
did not originate with V. M. Gibson, has
been his pet scheme from the first, and is now
pushed on by him in face of a pronounced pub
lic disapproval? "Other wonderful reasons have
been assigned why Kalakaua should have a
coronation, such as the value of the gloves to
be bought for the occasion. That was a sop
to the merchants. Now the pity of the com
munity is invoked to invest with the sanctities
of religion this mock pageantry.
In countries where religion U established by
hw, where there is a national church one can
sec some propriety in inducting into office the
sovereign, who is also the head of the church
like Victoria or Alexander, with some litur
gical performances. Hut there is no Ha
waihn national church. Kalakaua is not a
man who feels the pressure of religious resjwn
sibilitiesj and if we may trust the published
statements of those who have conversed with
him on the subject, he counts himself among
"the advancetl thinkers of the nineteenth
century" and reckons religion among the
exploded theories of an unscientific age.
What is ''the religious service" to be
"added to the" civil forms by which he was in
stalled upon Ihc throne?" Was the oath of office
only a civil form? What religious service can
be other than a liturgical form ? Who has any
authority to prepare such a ceremonial ? Where
are the precedents for il? It is not a Ha
waiian custom. No advancetl thinker of the
nineteenth century would think it scientific to
go back to the barbarous usages of idolatrous
superstition. What religious official is the
proper crson to officiate? The English
Church is the church of a few foreign residents.
The Romish Church is not the church of the
majority of the Hawaiian people. The Church
of the Utter Pay Saints has only a scanty
and scattered tncmbcrshiii. Historical asso.
ciation, if they have any religious worth or
efficacy, would make the " Old Slone Church "
the place for the religious ceremonial, and its
stor the proK-r person to officiate as Iwlng
the representation of the largest organization
that is mott properly now the embodiment of
the religious faith of the large majority of the
Hawaiian people. Hut the ortan has nub.
lulled to the world a condemnation of this
Kau aiahao Church as a disgrace to the name
of religion, and surely that cannot be a fitting
place to consecrate Kalakaua to his kingly
The English coronation oath was fixed bv
act of Parliament, but wc have not heard of
any form of oath or of religious service ap.
pros rd by the last legislature. Are they to lie
called together lo give authority of law as well
as the sanction of teligion to the proposed
We should like to be thoroughly posted on
this matter before we attempt to criticise, as
we are bound lo do, in our editorial capacity,
for ihc enlightenment of the public, the pro
gramme whieh we suppose U soon to be pub
lished. Has any one a copy of Ilohn'"C).
clopediaof Political Know ledge," or can any
one lend us a book published in London, 8j8,
entitled "Chapters on Coronations?" It
Kalakaua lo be annolnled with oil?" On
what Scripture, is he to be sworn thU time?
If this proposed coronation is to be a purely
religious service, to be added to the inept civil
form used eight vearsavo, it will greatly relieve
the perplexities of the Lord High Chancellor
oftheieahn, who might have some legal sou.

The planters are coming and It is honed
and believed thit theif convention will result
in great good to the country. They are a
power, In fact the fv;ivr ot the land, and any
decides! stand which they may take, or any
K)Iicy which they adopt on questions of public
interest, must necessarily take precedence even
at the expense of the cherished opinions of the
King s ministers, or of the King himself. Of
this there can be no doubt, however distasteful
it may lie to those upon whose Inflated erson
alitics the friction will be severe. It is gener
ally admitted that scvcnl questions of great
importance to themselves and the common
wealth, requires the most careful consideration
and wisest conclusions of this convention of
planters, and it is earnestly hoped that the re
suits of their labors will meet with the grate
ful approval of the majority of the people,
Their inlcrcsts anil the liest interests of the
people as a whole, arc identical. It lies in
their power to work many needful reforms and
it is expected they will use their power with
wisdom arulyirmnett. Advice to them as a
body or to any intlivldu.il member of the con
vention, upon any question which may be
lirouglit before it for consideration, is not neces
sary, for they are all thoroughly acquainted
with the situation; but ills not out of place
for a public journal, laboring in the interests
of the whole people, to urge this powerful
convention to decisive action at this time,
with the full strength of its influence, for gn
a nmtntal rtform. The planters arc in a xi
sition lo command deference from Ihc govern
ment to their interests, and to compel comfli.
ance with their just demands. It is to be
hoped, however, tint there will be no necessity
lor tlicm to assume an attitude seriously an
tagonistic, or to do more than declare their
wishes with firmness.
Upon the question of reciprocity there will
probably lie no tlilfcrcncc of opinion. The
question of lalwr and the cloud of one man
commercial power which is rising on the Ha
waiian horizon, will no doubt be very trouble
some, the latter question especially, as it is
currently reported tint the "sugar king" lately
left the Islands declaring that his mission was
to (yea the treaty. So that upon matters of
direct financial interest to themselves, it is ap
parent that the planters have weighty work be
fore them. Hut other momentous questions
not so direct in their financial influence upon
the planters, but seriously affecting their future
prosperil) and the future welfare of the whole
people of whatever occupation or profession, it
is nopeu, win receive the decisive attention
and unanimous action of these gentlemen, lit;
jmlitical reform ; a. return to good constitution
al government ; removal of the present utterly
unreliable and svcoplnntic advisers of the
King, and the appointment of wise, capable
anil noncst ministers who will command thecon
fidence of the people, and they the people
nopcluily rely upon the planters for relief, but it
is no light task to accomplish. The present min
islry are conscious of their position : they are
shrewd and unscrupulous anil will make every
concession in their power to conciliate tie
planters; the entire machinery of the govern
ment will be used if neccssay by these sveo
phants and intriguers to divert opposition from
them. They know the power of the planters
anil lear them and now announce themselves
-... .. Mt- . . ...
1'e-iie-eiiy wining to assist tnem in every way
posstuie. Ul course this is tempting and dan
gerousbait; they will probably offer the port
folio of the Minister of I'inance. They will be
guilty of any extreme of duplicity and cringing
to maintain their jiositions. They will no
tloubt attempt to create a difference of opinion
in the convention, but the people arc confident
that the planters will not be hoodwinked or
deceived, but will be firm in their detcrmina
tion to purify the Government of the rotten
ncss that now disgraces it. The fawning
tongue ol the flatterer who imposed upon
Hawthorne, Iirigham Young, Kalakaua, the
tleir people, ctc,.will once have lost its cun
ning and entirely fail of its object. Welcome,
UltiSUN-S RECIPROCITY POLICY.
Careful scrutiny of this arch-plotter's ma.
neuvering since our too susceptible Kinc re.
paid his fulsome flatteries with the portfolio
01 Premier, has laid bare the one prominent mo
live inspiring all his nets. Self-aggrandize.
ment is the most comprehensive term descrip
tive of the man's principal ambition at all times
nnd under all circumstances, and his thorough
unscrupulousncss in regard to the agencies he
emplovs in securing the advancement of self,
completely strips his actions of whatever merit
his otherwise able management might clothe
them with, and in no case has his careful pro
le-vuuu 01 scii-inicresi been more conspicuous
thin in his management of the Reciprocity
question during his brief elevation to his
present position of fancied greatness, and not
withstanding his studious attempts at conceal
ment his trail is plainly exposed. He-ginning
during the legislative session 'when he so suc
cessfully evaded the attempts of members to
make him define his position on this question
he early saw the importance of establishing
himself as the sole1 director of Hawaiian inter
esls in this- relation, and the medium to which
all patties would have to apply for reciprocity
information. He adroitly secured to himself
the discretionary disbursement of the increased
appropriation for foreign missions that was
voted ostensibly in ihc interests of continued
reciprocity. He conciliated and made subject
to his wishes one of his most dangerous oppo
nents by promising him a special commission
He probably fancies Hut he has attained an
impregnable position with the Planters' and
others most interested, but he greatly over-es
timates himself; he is too well known and his
motives too well-understood; he cannot be
trusted. Every one knows thai his principal
object is to make his ministerial position more
secure and defensible. Hut he has gone fur
ther in his duplicity than is generally known,
He assumes to promise in the name of the Ha
waiian government that absolute free trade
with America will be favored by Hawaii, and
that such arrangement of import duties will be
nude as to nuke trade with any other country
man Ameiica, practically impossible. Here
he over-shoots the mark, and plainly invites
complications which he cannot control. Of
course such an arrangement would be highly
uiicinig to rimcricaiu, ana would gratify the
wishes even of extremists amonc them. Mr.
GiUon has been induitriously making capital
for himself out of this Idea, and he no doubt
fancies that he has nude a faithful ally of the

maintained Mr. (Jibson In. hi posktoa, and
circumstances hate nppircntly substantiated
the truth of the assertion that had it not been
for this same influence, Mr. Gibson would
have been required to surrender his portfolio
some time ago. This valuable patron of Mr.
Gibson Ittcly went away with the avowed in
tcntion of wotking against the Treaty.
I low is it? The, foregoing contains a few
ideas for the consideration of the Planters,
when assembled in convention next week.
1'A I'ORITISM A T PUBLIC EXPENSE.
Among the many other charges tint can be
laid at the door of the present ministry is that
of nepotism, and of often overstepping the
proper Iwunds in order to favor a relative or
friend. The rights of others in this respect arc
not considered, lior is the welfare of the gov
ernment for a moment thought of, We have
previously alluded lo the apiointmcnt of the
'.'son-in-law" to nit unimportant office, the
salary of which was raised from $Joo to $1,800
annually, and the selection of friends for vari
ous duties that could have been better tlonc by
others. In our last tw o issues wc referred to
the letting out of contract to favorites without
giving others an opportunity to put in a bid.
Once more we musl enter a like charge. The
legislature at its late session appropriated the
sum of $6,000 for needed repairs and exten
sions at the Insane Asyjum. Hid have not
been advertised for, but the contract, nevcrthc-
ess, has been given to Mr. tlavscldcn for
$5,Soo, which will leave a very smili margin
for other improvements lhat nny be neces
sary. This is most reprehensible conduct on
the part of Ihc ministry. All of the builders
should hive hid an opportunity to enter n bid
and the one that proved most satisfactory
allowed to do the work. The ministry may
say that they took the cheapest plan, anil the
organ may expatiate upon the milter witlt the
view of nuking it clear-to the dear people;
but if other transactions of a like character are
any criteria by which to judge, it Is our opin
ion that the people will pay dearly for their
whistle. The work is Ihc people's and not the
ministry's and should lie given to the one who
would do it satisfactorily for the least money.
A short time ago it was desired to build a gas
vault and pump house of brick for, the new
palicc. llids were not advertised for, but two
or three were tendered to the Interior Depart
ment. These they refused to open and the
work was given out by the day. One bid was
for $1,100 and another for $1,250, both parties
agreeing to complete the work for the sum
given. Work has been continued on the
vault since but it is not completed, and the
expenses up to the present time anlount to a
total of $1,600. lly the time the work is
completed it will probably amount to double
what it was proposed to do it for in the bids
rejected. This as a sample of the present
ministry's work, shows us what we may ex
pect. TRUTH SHALL PREVAIL.
It appears to be a difficult matter for some
people to regird as the truth that which is dis
tasteful to them; or if they inwardly believe it,
arc not willing to admit it. The SATURDAY
I'KrSS and all of its contemporaries, except
those published by the Premier, have lately
been giving the public some facts and figures
that have opened the cjes of not a few. That
the people of the entire Kingdom arc pleased
to see this fearless exposure of wrong doing on
the part of public officials, is evidenced by the
large number of letters that wc and others hav e
received from every Island in the group.. This
opposition comes from no particular class or
clique, but is the expression of the whole peo
ple, native and foreign. Truths that are not
palatable to the present ministry, the organ,
not being able to refute, attempts to deny
until proof is brought forward, when it relapses
into silence. The '. C. A., of Monday last,
speaks of ". some ribald newspaper writers, the
sound of whose declamation so fills their own
cars that they fancy the people of the country
are roarmg.out the same talc." This is only
an other way of attempting to orawl out of a
close corner. It is true that the papers have
roared in the cars of incompetent "and unworthy
public servants, -and it is true lhat the roar has
been echoed back from every town and hamlet
in the kingdom. Uv cry assertion that w e hav e
made has been proved, notwithstanding the
repeated denials of the ministerial organ.
Respecting the stranding o(y the Niagara, it
Jias been asserted, upon good authority, that
with a good strong tug boat to work with, in
stead of the miserable and inefficient thing
called the Pelt, the vessel might hav e been
readily cleared again after having struck. Lit
tle, however, could be expected to be accom
plished in such a situation by a boat that is
scarcely able to propel her own hull against a
ten-knot current and a moderate breeze. The
'. C. A. sajsr "Misfortune brings once more
into prominent notice the inadequacy of the
tug Pelt for the work of this port." The wicked
ministry that preceded the immaculate one
now in office, knowing of this inadequacy
proposed in the budget the amount of $50,000
to be devoted to the purchase of a competent
tug. Their successors in office however, think
ing the money might be needed for some roj-al
freak not, perhaps, at the time matured, saw fit
to expunge the requisition for a "new tug,"
Hut this is what the Gibson organ calls "wisely
declining lo favor the investment ofa Urge sum
of money in a new tugboat." As has been
the case with many other professions of the
present ministry, Ihcy were "going to" subsi.
due any one that might go into the enterprise.
llut they tlidn t, and never intended lo do so;
the records of the assembly show no such in
tent, nor any appropriation therefore.
We arc told that the only reason why the
present cabinet is held together, against the
strong current of opinion against them which
runs through all classes of the community, is,'
lhat it is doubted whether other four men
could lie got together who would lend them
selves to act in such an idiotic burlesque as the
approaching coronation. Lack of funtls at
home and lack of credit abroad by this govern
ment must eventually unseat the existing cabi
net. Even he knows that he cannot fly in the
face of capital, in the mailer of appointing miu.
isters. The government has already had some
rude shocks on this score, that should teach
the King (if considerations of ability, nrzVca
Miry in the appointment oi cabinets are not lis
tened to), thai the game of personal rule
through favorites is not so easy in practice as
it may be in theory. The road is growing
rougher and rougher as we journey along, and
il is well nigh lime the horses were held in.
People will ere long insist lhat the reins of
government be put into the hands of men who,
as a body, shall have more self-respect and re
gard for common decency than to sit in con
clave, or work in unity, as intimates and coad
jutors, with one so debased, as to be beneath
the rcacclful recognition ol the common rabble,

A Maul correspondent write that "it Is too
bad thai the present ministry should be styled
a cabinet, a the word cabinet gives one an
idea of an exquisite piece of furniture, whereas
ihc present oue ha neither lawe cswrUesce of

should have prompted any high functionary

nature of the reception; such expression was not
forthcoming however. Too good an opportun
