SATMDAY, FEBRUARY 12.
The i..uft information inrrgnrd to the Treaty,
is cont iinc-J in tne Wa.!jin;ton ttrlegrajliic rk'wa
of January 25th t t!ic Alia of the 20th, which
tt.nJ.-i as follows:
" The Committee on Wajs and Mean9 to-day
took up the hill to carry into effect the treaty
between the United States and the Hawaiian
Itlands, the ratifications of which were exchanged
in June last. The consideration of the bill waa
postponed until next Tuesday."
The mail steamer, which will be due to-night
or to-morrow morning, will rrobably bring some
thing definite in this particular.
We are are requefcted by the Centennial Com
inrcgicners to eay, that all articles intended to be
forwarded niuot be on at hand previous to the 2d
of March, by the steamer of which date they will
be shipped for Philadelphia. A list of our island
contributions which we understand will be
quite large and creditable will be pubiished
hereafter. We are further desired to 6ay that
good specimens of sugar cane for shipment are
In reg.jpi. the question, which has been
moofedVof our obtaining a supply of either la
borers or immigrants from Japan, we are permit
ted to make the following extract from a letter
from UN. Urown, Esq., Hawaiian Consul General
at Yokohama, dated December 31st, 1875, ad
dressed to the Minister of Foreign Affairs :
Few, if any, Japanese find their way to California, except for
purposes of education, and the preparations now being made
by this government for an expedition to Corea In the spring, cre
ates a demand for able bodied men, so that at present there
would aprxar to be no hope of being as yet able to attract
einigcams to the Hawaiian Islands.
In view of the mischievous use that is some
times made by candidates for the Legislature of
the law requiring the production by a voter of his
tax receipt, the probability is that an effort will
be made during the coming session to secure its
repeal. It will be well however to consider
whether, by hastily endeavoring to cure one evil,
we may not be substituting another and a worse
one. For instance, in districts where there are
two polling places, if the production of tax re
ceipts was not required, there would he nothing
to prevent " repeating."
The biennial bill of appropriations for the
year 1802, amounted to $496,280.02; that for
the year 1874 was $070,303.87; by comparison
of which figures it will be seen that in twelve
years the government expenditures have been
nearly doubled. An3 while it may not be actu
ally necessary to cut down our coming budget to
the limit of the old appropriations of 1802, yet
something not far from this will be requisite, and
the nearer we can approach to it the better it
It is not our intention to discuss any set scheme
for reduction, for this may justly be considered
more strictly the province of the Cabinet than
that of a newspaper ; but we are not exceeding
our province when we pronounce upon the use
lessness of some of the offices now in existence
under government, and the disproportion of pay
in others. In any business, it is a just cause for
solicitude if the expenses are in excess of the re
ceipts, and we are not aware that with a govern
ment the case is at all altered. In exceptional
casea it may be safe to expend in anticipation of
a great return ; but in our present circumstances
the wisdom of an expectant policy ia more than
questionable. Better hold to the principle that
beyond actual necessity, all expenditure is lavish."
Thcro has been too much respect paid in the
past to eclat in the disposition of government
aflairs, and certain stereotyped forms have gradu
ally grown upon us which, if our financial con
dition were more healthy might perhaps be just
ified, but which in our present status Ehould be
dispensed with as soon and as often as opportu
nity offers. For instance, to take a Btnall ex
ample, one Minister thinks he has as much
right to employ a clerk (say secretary, if you
will) in his office as another, and to pay him too
what another Minister pays his ; not, indeed, that
there is generally any real work to be done in
the office, but that being a member of the Cab
inet his dignity and power are coextensive with
those of other members, and consequently his
establishment should be equally well provided.
And herein we are not objecting that the pay of
clerks in general under government is exorbitant,
in comparison with like positions in mercantile
houses; our reference is to the superabundance
of clerks employed. And with thoso clerkships,
aa well as other offices where thero ia clearly no
real work to be done but what might be very
readily accomplished by a slight exertion and ap
plication on the part of the superiors, it becomes
only a question of appearances versus money illy
to be spared, whether or not they should be abol
ished; and we 6hould certainly vote for the
Among the useless offices to be enumerated,
arc those of the Governors of the different isl
ands. By abolishing these, a saving of about
$10,000 per annum could be made, and the work
supposed to be done by these officials which now
is almost literally nothing could be turned over
to the sheriffs of the respective islands. The
original intention when the governorships were
created was undoubtedly to satisfy the cravings
of the Hawaiians for 6how and parade, and at
the same time to afford place and ostensible em
ployment to the native chiefs of the country. But
the race of chiefs is now no more, and it is to be
hoped that as a nation we have become sufficiently
matured to dispenso with the pabulum of more
primitive times, however it may be served up
It would scarcely be asking too much of the
sheriffs, that they also do the work of rad sup
ervisors of the several districts on their respective
islands, the road making to be done by the pris
oners under their charge, hiring help occasionally
when needed. Such a plan would be more ef
fectual in securing good roads and much cheaper
than the one at present pursued. In addition to
this, make the sheriff also a tax collector, and he
would then be a moderately worked man ; in
consideration of which a email per centage might
be allowed him in addition to his salary. For
these duties he would be especially adapted, as
from the nature of his position as sheriff he
would be more or less intimate with every per
son in his district.
The euni of $47,470 was appropriated by the
last Legislature for the support of the military.
About one third of this is required to keep up
the band an institution of which public opinion
decidedly approves, merely ornamental though it
may be considered by some. But public opinion
will not approve of any expenditure for military
purposes beyond the necessary guard at the palace
and for national courtesies.''
"TiTX'uuueCTion with the Foreign Office may be
mentioned a very useless expense, viz : $S0O per
annum for a Charge d'Affaires in London.
It will not be claimed that at present there is
any greater security to life or property than ex
isted in 1802; and yet, referring to the appro
priation for police for all the islands in that year,
it will le found not to have exceeded l'.'X'O, a?
agrtinst $00,X0 in 1S74.
In the last mcntioued year ve Lave afirori
atcd $00,000 for the leper eitablUhmcnt, while
f.-r 1872, $:0,CKj was all that w5 deemed i;o
Cfsary. In addition to this huge appropriation,
the D-ard of Health have been allowed $12.W.0
each year fjr physicians and nurses and for general
expenses. This may be all right ; but approjria
tions of euch magnitude should be better clas
sified than to leave eo much room for incidentals.
In view of this subject, rememb;ring that the
country is really poorer than it waa in 1SC2, it
seems undeniable that our obvious policy to-day
is one of retrenchment in every possible direction.
If we would escape the abyss of financial and
political ruin towards which we are drifting, we
must speedily reverse the policy of the past,
whereby we have squandered eighty per cent, of
our income on salaiies and government expenses,
disbursing only twenty per cent, for public
improvements and nothing for the recuperation
of the nation.
THE NEW LEGISLATURE.
The election returns indicate that the electors
have chosen in very many if not in most instances
representatives understood to be in opposition to
government ; if, however, that may amount to
I any thing very intelligible, sccisg ttiaTthe only
I measures to wnich government is known to be
committed are the Treaty which ia now beyond
legislative control, and the loan for the negotia
tion of which a law waa passed at the last session
of the Legislature, but which has not been ne
gotiated and perhaps is impossible to effect.
Nevertheless, the fact of an opposition majority
in the House may yet be discovered to have sig
nificance, if it shall appear that these members
are disposed to unite in taking tlio opposite side
in any bills brought forward by the government.
It is understood in England that " Her Maj
esty's opposition " perform an essential and very
useful part in the legislative work. An intelli
gent opposition is no doubt serviceable to any
government ; but if it forma a majority of the
representatives, and remains unconvinced of the
propriety of measures in which it is to be voted
down by mere numbers in the upper House, the
importance of having an administration prepared
to bring forward such measures as will appeal to
the good sense of the country at large, and to ad
vocate them with personal force, becomes ap
parent. The system which obtains in England and also
in the Australian Colonies is an admirablo one,
but it is not available here for obvious reasons.
In the first place, government there has always a
definite and pronounced policy on public ques
tions, a failure to carry which in the popular
branch of the Legislature necessarily involves the
resignation of a Ministry. The new Cabinet ia
thereupon formed from among the leaders of that
party which was the opposition ; but before tak
ing their portfolios the newly selected Ministers
go back to their constituents and are voted for or
against de novo, on 6ome declared policy. Here,
however, our Ministry does not resign ; and for a
refractory Legislature there remains the remedy
of the Royal veto.
As to what " the opposition " will amount to
in the coming session, will depend very much
as we have intimated above, on the tact and
ability displayed by the leaders on the govern
ment side. A Hawaiian House of Representa
tives can be managed and it can be mismanaged ;
and government must exert itself to do the one or
experience the other. Parties, as such, may
scarcely be said to exist among the electors, but
they 6oon develope among the elected ; and one or
two able leaders among the Representatives can
wield a powerful influence in facilitating busi
ness, or the contrary.
The following is a list of the Representatives
for 1876, with the exception of the Districts of
South Kona on Hawaii, and Waimea on Kauai,
in the first of which there was a tie, and in the
second a postponement :

AN ELECTION POSTPONED.
. ' The inspectors of election at Waimea Kauai, being
as they state intimidated by threats of violence ut
tered by Mr. Kauai, one of the candidates, con
cluded not to hold the election at all. It is said
that Mr. Kauai, backed by a large crowd of his
udherents, had repeatedly declared that if the in
spectors refused to receive the ballots of his party
offered without presenting tax receipts, he would
smash the ballot box. His speech was vocifer
ously cheered. He is also reported to have stated to
the people that the law requiring the voter to
produce his tax receipt had been repealed, and
that it would be an imposition on the part of the
inspectors to demand it. Under these circum
stances, and in view of the fact that a fight was felt
to be certain, the judge, who ia President of the
Board, decided to postpone the election until the
authorities at Honolulu could be consulted. Let
ters from Sheriff Wilcox and other prominent for
eigners, render it very clear that with the reeling
of lawlessness and excitement that prevailed had
the inspectors attempted to hold the election and
carry out the law the trouble would not have
ended with the mere smashing of the ballot-box
as threatened, but that blood would have been
shed and perhap a lives lost. In the interests of
peace and humanity the course pursued waa the
The following is the letter of the Minister of
the Interior addressed to the Inspectors :
Department of Intekiok,
Honolulu, Feb. Stti., ISTtJ.
Gentlemen : I regret to learn, by your letter re
ceived this day, that you postponed by public notice
the election at Waimea, which should have taken
place on Wednesday last. It appears that your
notice was dated February 2, ISTti, and professes to
postpone the election, because of Mr. Kauai having
said on tuo 1st February, that if you proceeded iu a
certain way he would break up the ballot boxes.
You do not indicate what the point was, which he
louud fault with, and it docs not appear that you
attempted to hold the election at all. You say you
did not do so because you feared a breach ot the
All the reasons jou give in your letter, are insutll
cietit to justify your conduct. If you feared a breach
of the peace, it was your duty to call upou the
Sheriff to keep order, aud by nelectinj; to open the
poll on the morning of the election day, each one ot
you has rendered himself liable to a Hue of live hun
dred dollars ($500), under the ISth section of the
Act, passed the 24th June 1SGS, to regulate the quali
fication of electors for the represeutatives to the
Legislative Assembly of the Kingdom.
Whilst, if Mr. Kauai, or any other person, by any
threat of violence against you, or any of you, or
any intimidation of you, or any of you, obstructed
you in the performance of your duty, he rendered
himself liable to imprisonment for one year, or a
fine of 500, as by the 4th Section, of Chapter 20 ot
the Penal Code. Thus you see that whilst the law
protects you amply in the discharge of your duties,
it was your further duty to hold the election under
any circumstances. This you have not done, aDd
the next Legislature will take your case into consid
eration, or not, as they may see fit. But in the
mean time you will proceed to give a notice in ac
cordance with Section 7US of the Civil Code, which
may read as follows ;

You will take care that ail three of yoa s:i;n the

day of date of the notice, and day of the election, and
that the notice is posted in all public places, more
especially oo the Court House door, at the Churches, !
at the stores of the district, and other public places. !
I am told that one of the ooints of objection is
that two of yoa have withheld tax receipts of ihe j
people. This will not justify any person in threats i
of violence against yoa, but I thick it proper to warn ,
you that if acy person should withhold a tax receipt
from a voter" and thereby prevent his voting, he i
would be liable to a prosecution lor damages on the
part of the voter; ar.d if a person be prevci.trd from ;

tioD Is liable to be declared void, and the person so j
wrongfully prever.tit.g one lioui votii.g may be

No man can vate ur.less he produces before the
