The Advertiser reminds us of a
stuck pig. So long as a pig is not
hurt it walks contentedly around,
wallows in the mud, and simply
grunts, but when a knife penetrates
to its vitals a squeal is heard that
makes the very air tremble. The
Advertiser squealed this morning.
',. It was with feelings of grief, not
' of anger, that we read the Advertiser
this morning. Wc believe in the
. doctrine of inherited tendencies, and
that evil in the father is reproduced
in the son. That is what is the
"matter with the Advertiser's staff.
As we recollect thepresent proprie
tor in bis boyhood, he was not worse
than other boys, and we have no
doubt that theeditor he recently im
ported, used to write comparatively
respectable English ; but their un
lucky star was in the ascendancy,
and they inherited the Advertiser.
Poor fellows. It is not their fault ;
it is simply their fate. A man can
no more sit down in the Advertiser
"office and write sense than he can
understand how it is that Mr. Gib
son is a rascal. The very type get
up on end of their own accord, and
' formulate themselves into such words
as "soreheads," "office seekers,"
"nasty," etc. It is not the fault of
the men, but the whole Advertiser
establishment is so saturated with
the abuse of honest men and the ad
vocacy of Gibson, that it is simply
impossible to reverse the order of
thingB while a vestage of the concern
remains. Nothing but a change of
name and the total destruction of
the building and entire apparatus
will ever gjye the proprietor of the
Advertiser a fair show to run a
decent newspaper in Honolulu. 'Tis
true, 'tis a pity; 'tis a pity 'tis
You havo our warmest sympathy,
. Mr. Macfarlane.
During the discussion of the Gas
f, Charter Hill yesterday, the question
arose hb to granting an exclusive
privilege for twenty-five years, thus
creating a monopoly. The point
was strongly urged, and on the vote
being taken and the ayes and nces
rr .ft- -rm.
ealleuyhe tCHtilt was 7 for monotdy
ami 3S opposed. V
This vote was a fair indication of
the fueling of ihu House when un
prejudiced by outside influences.
Thu projectors of the IS as Chattel
scheme were men who tire alx.ve it
pronch, and subtnitled their plan oi.
its hum its, but the sentiment of the
Assembly, as expressed by its vote,
was unmistakable.
If any monopolies are granted at
this session it will be on account oi
the use of improper influences out
side of the House.
The citizens of Honolulu must be
proud of their Representatives ! and
particularly so of Keau. He is a
member of the Finance Committee,
and signed their report. Saturday
he stated in the Assembly that he
was goiirg to talk on both sides, and
wound up with an eulogy of the Min
istry, in the face of the report which
lie signed. Is it not an insult to the
constituency which Mipplics the large
part of the revenue of the country,
to bo trifled with in this manner, and
denied a voice in the Legislature at
the whim of a man who would sell
his soul for a Government billet?
A ciowded public meeting of the
citizens of Honolulu has decided
unanimously to petition the King for
the removal of the Cabinet, and the
petition for that purpose is now
being circulated. Every honest man
who has the welfare of the country
at heart, and has not an a. to grind,
will sign it.
The simple fact is that the future
prosperity of this community de
pends upon the removal of this Cab
inet. There are those among us
whosajT: "Who earos for politics
so long as we eau make money."
To those and to every one we would
say, let this Cabinet remain in power
and it means that the whole power of
this Government, and all its votes in
the House will be thrown in favor of
the Bank Charter, or a general bank
ing law which will accomplish the
same objects. The whole strength
of an uiiscrtipulous administration
will be given in favor of whatever its
master, Claus Spreckcls, chooses to
direct. TJie Cabinet Must Go.
There are not
wanting self-suffi-
cicnt critics to carp and cavil at the
men who arc bearing the burden and
the heat of the heat of the day in
the Assembly. Their Finance Com
mittee Report, say the critics, ought
to have left out trivial matters, such
as Neumann's cab hire of 1.08 for
one quarter, Guliek's telephones at
$139 for two months, lunches at
8'l.CG, and carriage hire at 68.73
during Guliek's administration, and
lunches at $7.07 and carriage hire at
$17.94 a day during Bush's time,
spent at, the Immigration Depot.
These are uot large sums of money
in single items, but the principle of
the thing is bad, and ought to be
shown up. When heads of depart
ments are lavish of public money, or
use it for their personal gratifica
tion, be sure that subordinates arc
not slow to follow suit.
To pay for cab hire of officials to
Cunha'fl and back two or three times
a day will not break the nation, but
the men who thus spend money will
not be over-scrupulous about any
expenditures. The report proves
There are others who are bold and
daring in calling out "seek 'em," if
no one hears who will tattle on them,
who ask, why don't you pitch into
them on this point or that; but you
can assure yourself that these pa
triots never spend or risk a dollar
themselves for the purpose of ex
posing or preventing official iniquity.
But the pretence of witholding judg
ment until the Legislative vote is
announced is the most absurd pre
tense we have heard. The Ministry
lias failed to disprove one cent of
the committee's figures.
The Ministry has acted in viola
tion and defiance of The Appropria
tion Act; The Loan Act; The
Coinage Act; The Auditing Act;
and they make no denial of the
fads thxts chunjed ayuinsl them.
No one can ignore or Bcek to ex
cuse the acts which this Ministry
admit they havo done, without accu
sing himself.
The 'opposition has boon doing
noblo work for the country. Its
ih"8t victory was in February last,
vhen, in spite of the efforts of the
linistry, it succeeded in eltiutlng so
mny capable and faithful repre
.ientativcs. Its second victory was,
when it elected Mr. Rhodes, Presi
dent of the Assembly, thus securing
the appointment of independent
committees, more especially of a
Finance Committee which has in
vestigated instead of covering up.
Imagine the result if such a syco
phant as Katilukou and others of
his stripe had been appointed on the
Finance Committee. We should
have known simply nothing concern
ing the iniquities which the present
committee has unearthed. It would
have simnlv been a Inure white
washing job. The third victory has
now been won in thoroughly expos
ing this most vicious and dangerous
Ministry. Whatever influences may
cause them to be longer retained in
office, the fact remains that they arc
are hopelessly condemned. Noth
ing they can now do or say can
create confidence in them. Mis
government and disregard of law
by Ministers has never received a
greater blow in this country, than
has been given by the opposition at
this session.
The opposition thus far has not
had sufficient numbers to hold a
majority. Some who were elected
on their protestations of indepen
dence have given themselves over to
the Ministry completely, thus for
the present, leaving the opposition
in the minority. But this minority
has the brains and integrity of the
House ; and although powerless in
the sense of barely failing in num
bers, they have made a tremendous
The whole country is in sympa
thy with the opposition and is
watching and applauding them.
In last Friday's issue we pub
lished the following:
"Hon. Godfrey Rhodes said he
had been a staunch friend of Minis
ter Gibson, until it came tosuuh a
pass, that no man itiuiny reiurd
for his conscie7tce, his self-respect
or his honor, could lonrer t ssociale
with him."
Mr. Gibson said in the Assembly
on Saturday that he had written a
note to Mr. Rhodes asking him if he
had made such a statement, and
that Mr. Rhodes had replied that he
did not.
We were present at the time Mr.
Rhodes made the statement referred
to, and took them down, as we
though', verbatim.
We have since interviewed' Mr.
Rhodes on the subject, and he said,
"Xdo not remember exactly what I
did say, but the paragraph in the
Bulletin expresses in substance
what I said ; and you mny say that
whether I used those words in the
Assembly or not, they express my
sentiments exactly."
These arc the well considered
words of a gentleman who was a
friend of Mr. Gibson's, until the
latter made it impossible to con
tinue so. They are the words of a
man who has grown old in the service
of the country, and who is thorough
impartial, and will carry weight
Tuesday, June 2.4 Continued.
On re-assembling after recess, Sec
tions 8 to 12 were passed, with the
exception of Section 7 which was'
struck out. Section 12, calls for
"the cxlusivc right to construct and
maintain gas works in the city of
Honolulu, for the term of twenty
five years" to be granted.
Mr. Dole moved the word exclusive
be struck out.
Mr. C. Brown that the section
pass as printed. lie thought the
parties should have some security as
they would be put to a . great ex
pense. Mr. W. O. Smith, thought twenty
five years was a long time, a good
many of them would be dead before
that. It was not right to grant a
twenty five year privilege. It was
all bosh lo think of another company
coming in.
Mr. Bishop was not in favor of a
ga3 bill at all. He did not think it

possible tlint the
vntntu .twvuty'five years exclusive
charter. If they built llieir works
abd charged a reasonable price, there
i was no four of another company
coining in. He did not think the
people of this Kingdom wished the
House to pass a bill granting a
monopoly to any company.
Mi't Dole said inonopoly was a
new word to this country, and he
t'ougraltiled tliu country on having
escaped from monopolies so far. The
United Stales has suffered much
from monopolies. Thchc men do
not coino as missionaries to supply
us with light, because wc want it.
They ask for a franchise which at
first we do not understand, and then
they laugh at us when it is passed.
It is not right to grant this inono-
poly. lie thought when the House
gave them the right to dig up the
streets they have given them all
they ought to.
On a vole being called thu word
"exclusive" was struck out, 7 to 33.

Mr. Wilder would like to have
fuller particulars regarding this
matter. The bill was read a second
time b' its title.
Minister Gibson said, in regard to
the Minister's views, lie would refer
the honorable member to the report
of the Bureau of Immigration laid
before the Assembly, which reads as
follows: "The pioposition with re
gard to Japanee immigration, is
strongly recommended to thu con
sideration of the Assembly, the cor
dial consent of the Japanese Gov
ernment having been given for the
introduction of ten thousand of their
people during the next two or three
years, if the Hawaiian Government
s desire."
The Minister said, that Japan has
received our proposition in a friendly
in inner, and has pointed out to us a
way in which we could secure some
of their people. Col. Iaukea's in
structions were most favorably re
ceived at Tokio, and everything
done to open out a Held for iinmi
giation. Other countries had appliid

had not received any satisfaction.

Mr. W. O. Smith, was in favor of
Japanese immigration, and believed
it would result in good to this coun
try. Under the circumstances, Portu
guese immigration should be stopped.
lie did not believe in placing largo
amounts of money in the hand of
the present administration to dispose
of for immigration after their past
record. If Consul Irwin is obliged
to go on the next steamer, he can
report the matter is under favorable
consideration. I move the resolution
be laid on table for the present.

nave to go in to ueni to liuiuer

result in harm.
With regard to the Hon. member's
remarks about the Ministers, he will
say that matters rested entirely with
His Majesty.
Mr. Dole was in favor of the
resolution. The planters had res
ponded, and already there were ap
plications for one thousand Japan
ese laborers. Consul Irwin tells me
that these laborers can be landed
hero for $55 a bend including every
thing, and I iliink that is reasonable
Mr. Bishop said, I have always
favored appropriations for immigra
tion, believing it to be one of the
great wants of the country. " In
favoring the appropriation it has
always been in the hope that the
money would be used in a business
like manner and economically. These
expectations have resulted some
times in disappointment from vari
ous reasons. The business of im
porting Portuguese immigrants for
the past two years has been sadly
mis-managed. The accounts have
been so badly kept that I do not
know really how much has been
spent. It certainly has been more
expensive than it ought to have
been. The present President of the
Board of Immigration is not respon
sible for what his predecessor did.
lie is a business man, an account
ant, and it is a matter of surprise
he has not tried to straighten out
accounts, and keep them properly.
We have been seeking for Mich emi
gration as Japanese for some years,
and now there seems to be an oppor
tunity for doing something. I am
dissatisfied with the management of
the revenues of the country. Be
lieving tliu interests of the country
will be fathered by this object I
support the resolution.
The House at this point took a
recess until I o'clock.
On re-assembling after recess,
Mr. Pilipo said he would like to see
the Japanese come here, what few
are here are very quiet and law
abiding people and it would be to
the public benefit to have more

one of real enjoyment to all who

entire absence of formal stiffness
and prevalence of sympathetic
cordiality characterised the com

unalloyed pleasure. Tokens of

feeling were abundant, in the form
of pretty, valuable, and useful
presents. Both Mr. Carden and
Miss Woodard now Mr. and Mrs.
Carden have many friends in this
