DAILY BULLETIN: HONOLULU, H. I., DKCBMBEJR fi, 1859.
Wedged to neither Sect rtr fnrty,
Hut established for the benefit of all.
TIlUnSHAV, DKC. u, 1880.
Meetings in Kolmla and Hatnnkua
districts Lave nominated an identi
cal ticket for !Noblc3 for the Island
of Hawaii, namely: Robert R.
Hind, Ernest A. Uurcbardt, Samuel
Parker, Jos. Marsden, W. 11. Pur
vis, and J. Kaulianc. Knit furnishes
the last named, but the districts of
Hilo, Kona, and Puna are ignored,
a fact justly criticised by the Adver
tiser (from which the foregoing in
formation 9 obtained). A letter
from llatnaBiia In" the' same paper
indicates that oven there the ticket
is not wholly acceptable, notwith
standing the lion's share of repre
sentation given the district. Also
the nominating conclaves seem to
have been anything but of one mind
as to a platform another reason
for politicians who have the coun
try's interests at heart sticking to
the simple principles of economical
and progressive government, and
not spread themselves all over the
Constitution or divert attention from
administrative to social reform- that
are away abcad.of the times.
There has been a good deal of
criticism both of the contents of the
present Constitution and of the
manner of its origination. The
more justness there is in the criti
cism, the more ought the occasion
be taken ai a historical warning.
Constitutional revision may be un
dertaken, however, in at least one
worse way than by the acliou of a
small, irresponsible body working
secretly and hastily. That is, by
piecemeal, or by taking up a series
of proposed amendments, neither
related to each other nor to ques
tions of current administration, and
mixing them with the ordinary is
sues of 'men and measures in an
election contest. No. single amend
ment, not involving a generally felt
hardship, so submitted to the peo
ple can obtain their best rational
.judgment on its intrinsic merits,
which ought to be bad before
changes are made in the fundamen
tal law. Much less can a batch of
amendments on different subjects
lie satisfactorily adjudicated upon
by the electorate at one casting of
There are two constitutional
manges proposed by one party at
the present time, so different in sub
ject that a man may conscientiously
support, the one while rejecting the
other. One is to equalize the fran
chise by leveling that for the House
of Nobles to 'the universal suffrage
by which the House of Representa
tives is elected. The other is to
make Cabinet Ministers and princi
pal otllcers under the Government
elective. It would lie nonsensical
to imagine that there are not many
who hold to one of these proposi
tions whilo being opposed to the
other, and are thcrcforo bound
either to vole for what they do not
like or refrain from voting for what
they esteem good. The liability of
the people being confronted with
wucli a dilemma greatly confuses
the political situation. Another
amendment question having been
put before the country, by the Cabi
net'.s reply to the citizens' commit
tee on the Chinese question, makes
still more complicated issues.
Those who solicited the Cabinet's
action ill this matter protc to be
th first to father the later proposals
that arc calculated to bury the first
desire of their hearts out of sight.
The proposed Chinese restriction
amendment was advocated because
the Constitution prevented legisla
fon that was supposedly demanded
by a majority of the electors. It is
intended to facilitate the settlement
of a burning question liable to blaze
up at every election and every ses
sion of the Legislature. The issue
involved docs-not affect the system
of national government except, it
may be, too remotely to be present
ly vital ; therefore it ought not be
brought into the category of ques
tions arising under general constitu
tional revision. There may bo a
mistake in the expectation that the
proposed amendment would enable
a settlement of the Chinese question
to be effected once for all, but the
agitations on this question have
been bo frequent and strong that
the matter should now .bo sufficient
ly matured to require the earliest
posaible electoral decision. The
other proposed amendments are in
n different case. They have only
been desultorily advocated and in
buch ways that they have hardly
reached a higher dignity than that
of mere factional cries, lint even
If these amendments can ttiunnnml
the support of a majorlly for the
principle of them, they involve so
many details not yet agreed on by
their supporters, as welt as such
grave alterations in the fundamental
structure of our system of govern
ment, that it would be rash to com
mit a Legislature ejected on n
variety of issues to the -formulation
of the final text of the Important
changes. Such a course would bo
equal in unwisdom to what the Con
stitution framcrs of 1887 ajre blam
ed for. Let constitutional revision
be made an issue in the elections if
desired by any party.' Hut it should
be submitted in such a way that the
actual revision shall be left to the
calm councils of a representative
convention outside of the Legisla
A KONA KITE.
Editor Hci.i.ktin : As the politi
cal caldron is now on the boil for
next general election, a good deal of
froth may bo expected to rise to the
surface and it will be well if the
voters evince iiilUciciil intelligence,!
to know what to uo witu all trotliy
matter. The electors of much abus
ed Kona, Hawaii, have just been
treated to a rather sensational exhi
bition of the froth producing ele
ment. .Mr. .1. 11. AVaipuilaui, in
the J'ac Aina of the 9th instant,
thrashes himself into a high stale of
indignation about certain alleged
popular outrages which, if perpe
trated, would certainly prove Kona
to be fruitful of "aoinirs on that
would make your hair stand on
end." Tho doings complained of
and elaborated by that gentleman
with much gusto of affected virtu
ous indignation, were first known to
the people only when they evolved
themselves In the Pae Aina from the
protoplasm of "Mr. Wnipuilnni's
imagination. If, as is generally
understood, the gentleman is spread
ing himself for votes at next elec
tion, he must bo under the impres
sion that Kona is eager to confer
legislative honors on some colossal
slanderer who can supplement his
exploits in mendacity with buga
boos of the mist and whose bones
arc well covered with fighting meat
so that he can pose successfully in
pugilistic encounters with the ap
paritions of his own calling up. But
the Kona electors are not all fools,
and the intending candidate who
bids for their support must not think
to prove the mettle of his pasture
a3 a worthy representative by giv
ing a frce exhibition pf his prowess
as a . misreprcsenter of simple
The correspondence in thcj I'ae
Aina to which J refer charges, spe
cifically, (1) that the government
physician of tho Kona district held
a medical diagnosis of a leper "sus
pect," on board a steamer and in
view of all who desired to be spect
ators ; (2) that he held a public ex
amination of siindrj' "suspects" at
Kailua, on the public road ; (3)
that said government physician is in
the habit of diagnosing persons sus
pected of leprosy, in public places.
Enquiry elicits truth, and the truth
relative to the above is; (1) that a
native woman was examined in a
stateroom of the steamer in presence
of precisely two persons, one of
whom was the husband of the patient
and the other, tho indispensable in
terpreter; (2) that the alleged pub
lic examination at Kailua has not
taken place and is not likely to, at
least until Mr. Wnipuilani becomes
Representative of Kona or perhaps
Chief Justice of the Kingdom; (3)
that no examinations Biich as those
described by him are held on
steamers, roads or anywhere else.
The object of Mr. Wnipuilaui'B
hullabaloo is evidently to strike a
sympathetic chord in the hearts of
the native Hawaiians to the time
and tune of which he hopes to dance
into the legislature of 3890. ltut
it won't do. The representative that
Kona needs now fs one who can raise
something more substantial than
froth. If the Kailua gentleman set
out to advertise his peculiar abilities
with a viow lo taking the field as a
candidate at next election, he will
find that he succeeded admirably in
convincing the constituency that his
services can be most profitably dis
pensed with. It will bo a bad day
for Kona or any other district when
even a "corporal's guard" of
voters can lie found idiotic enough
to cast ballots for any map whose
mental and moral calibre is gauged
for such a display of mendacious
kite-flying ns that to which Mr.
Waipuilani invited his countrymen
in tho aforesaid Pae Aina news
