YOUNG MEN AND POLITICS.
A1-contemporary has asked why
the young men of this country do
not take an interest in politics. With
out attempting to gaugetho amount
of interest actually taken in politics
by the young men for it can hardly
he claimed that the lack of interest
is ' altogether universal there are
several reasons to account for what-
' ever of indifference there is to public
affairs. Some of these reasons arc
tangible, others arc more or less in
different. Many of the young men
are of foreign birth or parentage,
and 'some of these have not decided
"lto make'these' Islands their home.
"-'They take more interest in the
''politics of 'the nation from which
' they come than in those of this
ffifiW'" country. In a proportion of cases,
uouotiess, mcy ieei mat tucy nave
1 no right to interfere with the making
of administering of the laws. Even
if any of the laws bear hardly upon
their personal interests, they may
consider that there are conditions of
life here which more than offset the
onerous requirements of the state.
Then, having taken but small in
tcrest in affairs when evcrythisg had
been working with comparative
smoothness, they are ' incapablo of
judging of causes when serious poli
tical disputes or difficulties arise,
and therefore either choose to form
or express no opinion, or to decide
summarily according'to superficial
eyjdenco 'that has recently transpired.
, As a rule the laws of this Kingdom
are modelled after those of enlight
ened nations, and, when moderately
well administered,' cannot be ac
counted burdensome. Therefore,
when times are prosperous, people
of alien sympathies, who arc doing
well in their private affairs, take no
thought for the concerns of state,
and thus become used to doing with
out politics, and rather flatter them
selves in not being bored with them.
It is only when dull times come, and
it has been found that the GoYcrn
, ment has, like everybody else, been
going too fast, and depression in
; .trade is accompanied and augument
ed by' embarrassment , of national
finances, that such people begin to
' see that the politics of the country
hare a real interest to them.
On the other hand, no matter what
interest there may bo in Hawaiian
politics for resident young men, it
must bo dlfllcult for them to 11ml nil
opening for taking nn active pntt in
publlo affairs. No standard, em
blazoned with nny distinct set of
principles, is uplifted for them to
rally round. lu the Legislature
politics have been chiefly a scries of
skirmishes between tho "ins" and
tho "outs" over isolated matters
of administration. The Government
party was more like n belcagueicd
gariison, holding the fort for dear
life, than tho army it should have
been, on the match conquering and
to conquer the many obstacles to
national progress which exist. The
Opposition party was an alliance of
hostilo bands, without very "definite
purposes or united aims. They hit
at a head wheicvcr it appeared above
the battlamcuts of the citadel, and
made a few attempts to carry the
stronghold by storm. Their ulti
mate object was doubtless to insti
tute a better order of tilings than
that which obtained, but they only
appealed to the public mind and to
the sovereign against the sins of
omission and commission of tho
Ministry. They may or may not
have made out a case that demanded
the expulsion of the Ministers. That
is not the point under discussion.
Where the Opposition failed, amidst
some signal triumphs and through
out a general record of effective
public service, was in giving the
country no explicit assurance that,
in tho event of the Ministry being
overthrown, they had men ready to
take their places who would repre
sent particular principles and a
definite policy, aud whom they would
unitedly support so long as the
people signified acceptance of them.
Tho people must know what and
whqm they are called upon to sup
port before this country can get the
benefit of the modicum of responsi
ble government which is contained
in its constitution. It is, thcrcfoic,
the vagueness of our politics more
than anything else which we regard
as the greatest obstacle to the young
men taking a live inteicst in them.
This point could be amplified, but
'for the present we are content to
quote the words 'of a correspondent
of tho paper .referred to in tbcufirst
part of this article:
"What chance do existing me
thods affoid'for the stranger within
our gates, or even the average per
manent icsident, to engage in poli
tics with any satisfaction to himself
or advantage to the public? Where
is the political party, club or asso
ciation which he can join? Where
fare, -the meetings which he can
attend? Where is the machinery
tbroggh which he can act, and how
can he in any way have any voice
whatever in the conduct of any
party, the formation of any policy,
or the selection of any candidates?
In short, where arc the means and
methods by and through which lie
has been accustomed to work here
tofore, and without which, or some
thing like them, it is impossible for
him to work to any purpose, either
here or elsewhere?"
In hard times, the difference be
tween good and poor living may
often lie between the cultivation and
the neglect of the little plot sur
rounding the workingman's cottage.
A full house at the minstrels, and
throngs at the whirligig, skating
rink, and idler coaster those anti
dotes to dulness on a single evening,
leave no room for doubt that the
times are terribly dull.
The aggravating refusal of the
Pacific Mail Company to do carrying
services between here and San
Francisco should be tested at law.
We wonder if the business men of
any other port in the world would
stand such treatment from any
steamers coming to their wharves.
In this issue is a letter condemn
ing the action of the Privy Council
in extending liquor licenses to the
out districts. Another letter of simi
lar purport is in hand. These ex
pressions, with information from
other sources, shows that a strong
public opinion condemns the Privy
Several persons have expressed
approval of our recent discussions
of the laud question. It would afford
us pleasure to receive communica
tions from those who have given the
subject study. Our conviction is
that it is destined, in the not remote
future, to become one of tho fore
mobt questions in this Kingdom.
Some lime ago we stated that
thoro was danger in eating canned
meals after their exposure a little
while to the air. Another tiling that
should bo remembered is that this
species of food deteriorates in the
caus with age, and the wise provi
sion has been proposed in some
places that the dnlo of packing
should be stamped upon the tin.
Military commissaries have given
testimony that canned meats have
been extensively used without any
harm lesultlng, and wo doubt, if the
above points aic satisfactorily seen
to, that pcoplo will lose confidence
in this convenient method of putting
up food. Of course there should be
rigid scrutiny by the authorities of
distiicts where canning is engaged
in, from motives both of humanity and
of self-interest, to prevent unwhole
some food being put up.
EXTENDING THE LIQUOR TRAFFIC.
Editor Bulletin: Although ad
mitting that much may be said on
both sides, I scarcely think that
thoughtful and reasoning men will
consider the authoiized extension ..of
liquor licenses an advance in the
direction of wise progression. If I
have correctly read the spirit of
modern legislative movements its
tendency is towards restriction. In
America, Great Britain, Germany,
and other countries this is the case.
So great a statesman as Gladstone
expressed the conviction, not long
ago, that England would be com
pelled to enact measures for the res
triction of the liquor traffic. Thus
while other nations move in the
direction of restriction and prohibi
tion, this little nation seems to think
that it rises at a rapid rate by exten
sion and increase. I feel confident
that the time will come when this
will be seen to have been a sad mis
take. I cannot conceive how men
who profess to feel a yearning desire
to benefit the native race can recon
cile the placing of the means of des
truction within their icacli with those
professions. The liquor trade is a
curse to any country and any peo
ple, but doubly so to all aboriginal
races. Can anyone deny this ? Name
a single instance of any aboiiginal
race admitting ardent spirits and
not being destroyed thereby, either
wholly or in part. The greatest
enemy that the Hawaiian has to-day
is strong drink. It has already done
more than any other cause to demo
ralize and diminish the race, and its
work of destruction is still proceed
ing at a more rapid rate than
thoughtless people realize. To talk
of increasing the people and at the
same time placing in their hands a
weapon for self-destruction is all
bosh and hypocrisy. Be it under
stood, I am not a so-called temper
ance man, and cannot therefore be
justly accused of being inspired by
the prejudice that is popularly sup
posed to attach to all advocates of
abstinence from intoxicants; but I
have seen the effect of ardent spirits
on aboriginal racs in America, in
Africa, in Australasia, and in many
islands of Oceanica, and have been
convinced unwrillingly that nothing
is so destructive to those races as in
toxicants. Any man who has lived
a few months among the Hawaiians,
and is not wilfully blind, must con
fess that this enemy is effecting buio
and rapid destruction among this
people. Why then voluntarily bes
tow upon such a foe increased liber
ty, when the dictates of humanity
and patriotism cry out for restric
tion? P. A.
