A WORD TO THE WISE.
The ilic from which the political
history of the British Empire will
probably take its impress for the
next parliamentary period, has, by
this time, probably been struck. The
first question answered when the re
sult of the elections is made known,
is, "Who shall lie the leaders of the
government? The answer under
this head will also involve cither ap
proval or disapproval, by the con
stituencies of the kingdom, of the
policy of the present administration
as well as that of its predecessor.
The fate of General Gordon, and
the Afghan diplomatic negotiations
would have had their full share of
attention and would no doubt have
had considerable weight in the deter
mination of the popular verdict on
the foreign policy of the Gladstone
administration. Ireland's affairs
and the attention paid to them would
bo the leading matter on which the
record of the domestic policy of the
Liberal administration would be
tested. The new question confront
ing English statesmanship is that of
church disestablishment. The tre
mendous success of the Free Church
of Scotland which separated from the
state church in 1S-13, the disestab
lishment of the Irish Church by Act
of Parliament in 1871, and the great
expansion which various dissenting
religious bodies have reached both
in and out of England, have had a
reflex influence on public opinion,
the inevitable consequences of which
must be the dissolution of all con
tracts between Church and State in
the British Islands. The great diffi
culty, at latest advices, seemed to
be whether the curtain should lie
raised at once on the second act in
the programme of disestablishment,
or whether the audience will be com
pelled to wait "a little longer."
The campaign, at latest dates, was
' progressing vigorously. Great meet
ings to hear political issues discussed
were being held at every important
point in the Kingdom. The speak
ers were cascrlv watched by the
press, and their views thoroughly
ventilated. The orators in the politi
cal campaign presented themselves
before their respective audiences
with a full consciousness that they
were speaking in the hearing of the
whole nation. An English election
is a great constitutional battle a
war of opinion a field of bloodless
strife on which the fate of nations is
often decided. The intimate and
complex nature of the relations
existing between the English Cab
inet and every state under the sun
gives the issue of the struggle a
world wide interest.
A tremendous responsibility is
that of the English voter. He has
,i his hands what the Hawaiian
voter has not, the power of making
or unmaking the advisers of tho
Crown. Whatever verdict the na
tional jury renders, it will bo final.
And it will be acted upon forthwith.
Ministers will know, the instant the
rotes nrc counted, whether they are
or arc not ministers any longer.
Not so with the Hawaiian voters,
however. 15c they honest or dis
honest in the casting of their ballots,
be they determined as grim fate that
tho ministry shall hold on to tho
reins of state, or drop them ; the
verdict will be worth just the waste
paper value of the ballot cards;
that and nothing more. The
grand difference between an Eng
lish or American and a Hawaiian
election is that tho one is what it
purports to be, a choice of officers
to navigate the ship of state for a
definite period of time ; the other is
, what it docs not purport to be, a
farce a mere mimicry of consti-
tutlonal methods it popular abor
tion, inasmuch as the representatives
elected have no 111010 voice in the
composition of the administtation
than they have in the development
of pi'ci(". The English dueled 3U.
1 tenons Dial he counts one in the
appointment of the ciown minister.'.:
the Hawaiian minister knows that no
!M. V. exercises any power over him.
Instead of hot agitation of minor
questions of state policy, the great
matter before Hie people of tills
Kingdom is to secure a really con
stitutional government and legisla
ture, a government in which "the
King can do no wrong," but which
will make the crown ministers di
rcetlj' responsible to the legislature,
and which will substitute for that
portion of the legislature which is
now made up of sheriffs and other
nominees of the Cabinet, a body of
men representing their constituen
cies. This is the first object to
which any measure of reform worthy
of the name must be directed, if it
will be effective and permanently
useful. And this once secured, a
progressive and enlightened 'policy
that will consolidate institutions of
civilization at home, and establish
the credit of the Kingdom abroad,
will follow in due course and with
