Two years arc only a brief
arc only a Uriel span
in the life of a nation, but a con-
sidcrable time in, the tenure of an
administration under constitutional
government. A biennial session of
the legislature may be able to cope
with the quantity of woik required
for this Kingdom, but it is apt to
come short frequently in point of
the timeliness of its services. Many
grave crises may arise during the
present long recesses of the legisla
ture, which should be dealt with by
tho assembled wisdom of tho nation.
The smallness of the country .and
population is not a sullicient reason
for the legislature meeting only
every alternate year. Such affairs
as the country and its body politic
have are as important to them as
those of greater nations are to their
own people. "Work that in other
countries is relegated to municipal
bodies has heie to be done by the
national councils. (ireat incon
veniences may often inure to the
public under the present system, on
account of necessary public services
being hindered or stopped from un
foreseen causes, while the legisla
ture, that alone can give relief, is
yet a great way in the future.
Again, the country has now to bear
all the ill results of hasty or
immature legislation for two years,
when with an annual session the
errors might be corrected after a
year's experience. The sessions
ought to be much shorter when
annual than when biennial, so that
the expenses need not be anything
like doubled by the change. If the
advantages were what might reason
ably be expected, the additional ex
pense would be true economy in the
long run. Some might fear that
annual sessions would mean per
petual political turmoil. Well,
there is such a thing as healthy
political excitement, of which this
country perhaps stands in some
need. The cry has been raised on
different hands that enough interest
is not taken in polities by young
men of this country. There is not
the slightest doubt that the holding
of annual sessions would produce a
more sustained iutcicst in public
affairs on the part of all classes. At
the same time they might be expect
ed to serve as safety-valres for very
much of the acrimony generated by
tho desultory and fierce agitations
that sometimes characterize the
legislative recess of the present sys-
Mr. Marques, with that praise
woithy interest evinced by him In
many important public concents,
lately advocated a change in the
si stem of road maintenance. liiBtcad
of allowing roads, when once put in
good repair, to giadually wear out
until almost impassable and then
have to incur great expense in ie
constructing them, he would have
them systematically tended by per
manent staffs of workmen. As any
particular spot became deteriorated
by wear or weather, it would be im
mediately lepaired, and thus on the
ptinciplc of a stitch in time saving
nine the toads could be kept in good
condition all the time for less than it
now takes to rebuild them when
utterly gone. This very thing was
advocated in the Bui.i.i:tik some
time ago. and in Honolulu the idea,
we are glad to sec, is to some extent
carried out. It is to be hoped that
it will be made a principal feature
hereafter in the operations of the
toad depattment. Several important
loads have lately been put into very
lcspcctablc condition notably the
Pali road, the Palatna road, and
Queen street, and as none of them
arc likely to wear out evenly from
end to end, owing, for instance, to
water having more effect at some
points than others, proper attention
paid to breaks, ruts, or other faults
in them whenever and wherever they
occur would obviate the necessity of
tcconstruction almost indefinitely.
It is to be hoped the Minister of the
Interior will reorganize this depart
ment of his office so as to encompass
this very desirable object. In the
meantime the work of thorough re
pairs may go on upon other leading
thoroughfares, and eventually we
may have a system of roads to be
THE PLANTERS' MONTHLY.
The Planters' Montfdy for April,
laid on our table on the moment
before going to press, seems to be
one of the very best numbers of that
invaluable periodical yet issued.
This is the opening number of the
fourth volume, and it is gratifying
to find the editor enabled to say,
"The. publication has passed the
experimental stage, and has estab
lished itself by supplying a recog
nized need of the community."
Among the valuable information
given in this number is a full ac
count of a patent taken out by Dr.
Geo. Martin, the Spreckelsville
chemist, for conveiting waste mol
asses into a fertilizer ; also, the suc
cessful experience of a Dakota
farmer with sunflower stalks and
heads for fuel. A report of a meet
ing of the trustees of the Planter's
Labor and Supply Company con
tains :i remonstrance addressed by
them to the Minister of the Interior,
against, the issuance of liquor licenses
for the planting districts. An edi
torial article also takes strong ground
against the action of the Privy Coun
cil in that matter. At a meeting of
the Ililo Planters' Society, the ex
perience of Mr. Hitchcock was given,
showing he had got a gain of 18 per
cent of sugar out of trasli by the
maceration process. Immigration
matters receive attention in various
articles, statistical and otherwise, in
cluding the ublc paper by Mr. Mar
ques republished from the Saturday
Press. The gentleman just named
has also the flrbt part of n paper con
taining a plea for tobacco culture,
not from regard for the weed, but
for the saving of the large sums now
annually contributed to foreign grow
ers by devotees of the narcotic. Mr.
S. N. Castle contributes u paper en
titled, " Remarks upon Improve
ments in Sugar Manufacture," re
plete with information and sugges
tion, llamie culture receives a good
share of attention in this number.
No other publication is so represen
tative of the industries and resources
of the kingdom as this one, and it
ought to have a large circulation at
home and abroad.

The movement for lower prices of
concerts appears to be gaining
ground in London, and the World
of that city expresses the opinion
that "just as the public deserted
the once so fashionable Italian opera
because they would not pay the
high prices, so will the stall prices
have to come down in concerts if
practice is to be taken as a warning ;
for frequently we now sec in con
certs the cheap places arc well filled,
sometimes even crowded, whereas
the stalls are not only less fre
quented, but often empty."
