That a pcrsou should be acquitted of a crime, in the face of evidence tho stnmaest of which came out of bin own mouth, and in spite of only a mere feint hamg been made to put a defense on the stand, must be legarded as a miscarriage of justice. There are circumstanoeB addueible, however, which should nurvo as a loll to the cxttciue pessimistic views that are heard, iw to the result1), both upon the public peace and the administration of justice, from the acquittal of. Hobert W. Wilcox of "eonspiiacy to commit treason." Ditforent things contribute in this ciihe to the extenuation, we cannot wiy to tho justification, of the action of the jury.' It could even be justi fied if the principle were accepted, that two or more wrongs make a right. While. not. adopting such u principle, we must be charitable enough to givo weight to its opera tion, in such a case as that of AV i I -ktx, upon "tliis windy of his simple thinking' country men, when they saw him pushed in a corner, while be lieving that bio conduct, wise or otherwise, in conception or execution, was guided by considerations of their supposed welfare. These twelve of 11b peers had seen the Government abandon the charge against Wilcox of the, higher a line of treason Itself, although having evidente rqunlly con clusive on that K'Oro as on tho charge of conspiracy, and even having secured the conviction of u mere accessory on tho same evidence for the capital offense. As the Jury were told by nble counsel for the piosccution, they wore aa much u part of the tribunal as the Judge himself ; therefore they might, have been pnuloncd in considering themselves equally privileged with the prosecution In the matter of re mitting offenses. Whatever the let ter of the law is on this potut, it must be remembered that the Gov ernment is oath-bound to administer the laws without fear or favor, ub well us the jury to assist it iu se do jog whenever their services are required, . Agalu, this wrongful .verdict, i. measures should have been chosen, not any more reason for the whole In Iho fact that the Government was snlo condemnation of native jutios, not without blame in permitting the than the conduct and action? of armed band to organise nud assoin many foreign juries In thlo country , ble after teccivinu; timely warning, are ground for abolishing our whole j Instead of conciliation even such as Jury svatoui. Some verdicts of for ' might have gonu hand in hand with e'igu juries have boeu sharply criti cised In the piess, without any at tempt having been made to justify or defend thnu uid it is unneces sary to relate here the moie tlagranl occasions for sueh criticism at Mug within the pnM few years. There have been Instances of individual misconduct oi foreis;n jurors, 5-omo oxpo-.eil. to the public hut others concealed by persons who did not wish to be talebearer', to the autho rities, which should an est the hand about to throw a stone at native jit-rot-'. A foreign juryman has been lieaul in the purlieus of the court room in Honolulu, while the injunc tion of the Judge to preserve silence outside about the pending .as.c was ringing in 111s eais, 10 ucoiarr iiihi u certain party to the cic had "no show with that jury." Then, foreigners cannot refer with out blushing to the records of juries iu the lands of their nativity. liven iu England, lately, we have seen the jury in the .Maybiick case con demned by public opinion for obey ing the instiui'tions of the Judge to render a verdict of guilty, when the evidence was such as to create a reasonable doubt in their minds, which doubt was btrongly "confirmed by public information subsequent to the conviction. How many people are there in the California peniten tiary for engaging in the business of jury-bribing? Would such a busi ness ever have been started without the raw material to work upon? These wrongs abroad do not justify a wrong in Hawaii, but hcy should make people of foreign origin mod est in their censorship of native Hawaiian jurors. The foregoing extenuating con siderations are such as will occur to any thoughtful observer from the outside. A knowledge of the pre vailing sentiments among Hawai ians, in regard to the state prosecu tions and their cause, will tend still further to mitigate censure of the native jury. The natives reason thus: "When the foreigners parad ed with arms to secure what they deemed their lights in 18.87, we Ha waiians did not interfere with them ; but when a band of our people did the same thing in 1889 they were remorselessly shot at and six or seven of them were killed. We con sider the lives ot these our country men more than balance the account against us. One way to make ac counts even would be the raising of another disturbance, but for this we have no inclination. This, however, we are determined upon, Hint, so far as wo have opportunity, we will ex ert all the powers we have as peace able citizens to prevent any more of our countrymen from being punish ed." It is no answer In this direct acting logic of nature, to say that the account of bloodshed in the iu surtection should be against the in 'suircelionistH. The Hawaiians ut terly lefuse to look at the matter in this light, as the editor of tho home mission department of the "1'iiend" makes very clear. "Blood is thicker than water," and human jurisdic tion cannot overrule the first law of natuie. Spailan justice does not grow on lite lauhala trees. Let foreigners put themselves in the same position as their Hawaiian fellow cilixens and answer this ques tion: Suppoii' the revolutionists of IfiST, instead of cmciging iu ex panded political prhilegus, had landed in a similar "bad scrape" to that of Wilcox and his followers, could thcic have been a panel of foieign jurors obtained to consign them to the scaffold, to penal servi tude, or to exile? While we have called the verdict a miscarriage of justice, and con sider it besides a matter of bad po licy onffiie part of tiio Hawaiians, wo cannot regard it as tending to encourage another itiauirccMou as some people do. It is rather to be considered as the chosen form of re prisal by the natives for tho disas ters visited on their misguided coun trymen on tho aoth of July. We re gret that the polio of conciliation advised by the IJui.lktin has not been adopted. It would have had a mollifying effect on tho native mind to have dealt with the con quered band of insurgents ns a mass, accepting the casualties they sustained, and which made the whole Hawaiian heart sore, as at toncment for tho collective crime of the active participators. There is all the more reason why conciliatory straightforward prosecution, seveial irritating elements have been allow ed admittance to the trials. One such was the uncontradicted re port of efforts to got a Jury for conviction. Another was the shuf tling nl cases on the calendar out of the usual order. The Ciovcrnineiit ftccmed to look more to the triumph of securing convictions than to the ncquitting itsslf of its' own responsi bility in the matter. It U a com mon saying that a man cannot be expected to do more than his duty, and the same principle of judging iuu"t be applied to a Ooveinnient. In addition to the foregoing in stances of irritation, nothing could have been more galling to the native people, as a whole, than coitaiu edi torial articles and communications in the journal usually regarded ns the olllcial medium of the Govern ment. These were designed to be more inllammatory in effect than anything published in some native papers for which writers in the Ad vertiser advocated their suppiessiou. Aftci having got off an excited de mand for judicial vengeance on the morning after the insurrection, the Adveitiser during the trials tacitly suggested the abolition of native juries and the disfranchisement of Hawaiians. These things undoubt edly made the natives feel in the position of rats in a pit, and, if justification for their traversing of solemn obligations in the jury box cannot be found in the circum stances, it docs not require a great degree of gcncious perception to see therein much ground of extenu ation. THE "KINGDOM OF KEALIA." Editoh Bulletin: Some months ago I came to Kealla and obtained employment from the Makee Sugar Co. at Kapaa. I, as well as the rest of the employees, boarded at the company's store, the hash depart ment of which was presided over by as uninviting a specimen of the fol lowers of Confucius as it lias ever been my fortune to see, and entirely incapable of running even such a kitchen as the Kapaa store afforded. That the food was, in some in stances, both insufficient and of an inferior quality, can be testified to by every employee there, and that it was improved later was owing en tirely to a general complaint from all the employees. One Sunday morning I came in for breakfast and was served with a small piece of cold meat and some cold potatoes. I remonstrated, was answered in an offensive tone by the gentleman with the pigtail, and I slapped Ins face. On the following Monday I was vis ited by Mr. Fairchild, the financial manager of the company, who cn laiged very much on the brutality of the act. I explained my piovo cation, and it endod in me being told to pay $f or be prosecuted for assault and battery. My financial circumstances at the time not justi fying me in leaving mv position I paid it, but in paying lliem 6.", I don't know to whom, it set me think ing ot Russia and the Nihilists, and verily 1 found there arc more strange tilings in heaven and eaith than 1 had dreamed of in my philosophy. I found, for instance, that Mr. Fair child charged $1 wharfage, from any of the employees on the planta tion, for tho landing of a keg of wine or a caso of any kind of liquor. No doubt Mr. Fairchild will claim that his object in charging that, is to prevent liquor from landing or coming here at all, but by what right does lie charge it? If, on the other hand, his object is to that effect, h'Iiv mil clnn its Inmllnnr nltode.lhorV I think he has sib much right to do the one ns the other. I have heard again, that these contributions so to speak arc intended for a fund to extend the wharf, and the stop ping of liquors coming here would materially diminish the swelling of that fund. I have also heard of people quite independent of Fair child or the company having liquor landed, refused to pay the dolltu, and not been made to do it. The $5 that lie got from me without judge or jury I don't know what be came off, "but perhaps like the whisky tariff it went to swell the wharf construction fund, which by this time ought to be stretched (the wharf I mean) ns far as air. Fair child's conscience. I am a sailor and have travelled some, but T never heard of such very liberal wharfage lates till I came to this exceedingly small but very autocratic "kingdom of Kealia."
