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. CONSTITUTIONAL REVISION. 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 ballots. 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 ture. 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 facts. 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 paper.
