SATURDAY, SEPT. 10, 1S'J2.
"Constitutional monarchy is on
trial in Hawaii," says t ho Advertiser.
It should have added that the Ad
vertiser is judge, prosecutor, jury
and executioner. Hard show for the
It is rumored as this paper goes
to press that a Cabinet has been
agreed on, the Ministers being a.s
Saml. Parker, Foreign Affairs;
C. T. Gulick, Interior;
J. M. Horner, Finance;
P. Neumann, Attornoy-Geiieral.
Tho Bulletin- denies that it has
been guilty of parading tho person
ality of tho editor of a contempor
ary. It is true the editor of tho Ad
vertiser was named as tho prospec
tive incumbent of a one-man (T '
Bah) Cabinet, but it was only
make a mild satire on that papers
advocacy of such a constitutional
change Thoro was no porsonal slur
intouded, and tho suggestion of tho
take-off came from tho outside. It
was a joke and doubtless so regard
ed by the public.
"If constitutional monarchy does
not work it must cease; tho count ry
will not go hick to a monarchy with
out a constitution, but forward, to a
constitution without a monarchy."
This exalted dictum is from tho
Advortisor. It is elliptical as it
stands. Insert after tho word,
"work," words to make tho passage
read, "If constitutional monarchy
does not work so as to put its affairs
iu the hands of its enemies it must
cease; if it do work so, then consti
tutional monarchy will go to smash
anyway, and thoro shall bo ushered
in the boisterous era of South Amer
ican revolution." Tho Advertiser's
tacit throat against tho monarchy,
based as it is on a falso presentation
of the situation, only shows tho
nature of tho rule or ruin beast.
ABOUT THE DEADLOCK.
rho- Bulletin bolioves indepen
dently that it reflects tho sound senti
ment of the conservative element of
tho community in supporting tho
position taken by tho Queon with re
gard to tho formation of a Cabinet.
Our written Constitution, ruling all
our affairs by a" strict construction
of its letter and spirit, makes two
things plain; (1) Tho choico of Min
isters devolves on tho Sovereign. (2)
The acceptance of Ministers rosts
with tho Legislature. It follows
that tho Sovereign to securo a stable
Ministry must ohooso men who will
bo acceptable to a majority of tho
Legislature. At tho samo time it is
tho right and the duty of tho
Sovereign to exhaust all constitu
tional resources in the oluirt to se
cure a Cabinet of 111011 who aro
known to bo loyal to tho Crown and
the Constitution. She could not
stultify her position by selecting
mon who aro strongly suspoctod of
sympathy or co-operation with peo
ple who are contriving to overthrow
the established system of govern
ment and national independence.
Her Majesty is not bound to recog
nize n caucus of the Legislature,
which is apt to sacrifice principle at
the behest of wire-pullers, and to
make compromises that might not
bo honored for a day.
Tlio Advertiser has been quoting
British precedent copiously in n way
to suit its own ends, and with an air
of positive information assorting
what Queen Victoria has had to -do
or would not have dared to do. Now,
an once of fact is worth a pound of
assertion. It has been put on record
by the man whose interests were in
question, that Mr. Labouehore s
name was in tho list for Cabinet
honors piesonted by Mr. Gladstone
to tho Queen, and that the Queen
struck the name out. Why? Be
cause Mr. Labouehoro is not only an
advanced Radical, but his attacks on
the royal family's appropriations in
Parliament have been bitter and
persistent. One of his tirades in
this lino drew from Mr. Gladstone
himself a rebuke in one of his most
magnificent speeches, which was
largely quoted in this paper at tho
time. Tho Advertiser is, moreover,
uncandid in throwing all the respon
sibility for tho present deadlock on
Queen Liliuokalani. It has boon
openly stated and not contradicted,
that a majority of the elective mem
bers of tho Legislature signed a re
quisition for tho reinstatement of
two of tho resigned Ministers in
ollico. Yet the Advertiser and its
party, if it has a party at its back,
strenuously oppose any proposition
for Cabinet construction winch in
cludes the names of theso two Min
isters. Thoro is no leader recognized
jointly by tho different parties that
combined to put the Ministry out,
and the Queon did all that should
havo been expected in naming a
mombor of a formor Cabinet, at tho
requisition of a majority of tho
House to name someone, to assist in
forming a now Cabinet. It might
bo diiroront if thoro was any man
who could show a cloar majority
following his leadership. Then pro
bably Hor Majesty could only pro
test against accepting obnoxious
advisers, as it might bo useless to do
more with a majority that would re
ject any Cabinet not tho choico of
their leader and thomsolvos. In
such a case tho Queen's host recourBo
would bo to await tho judgment of
tho country on her now advisors at
the next genoral olections. Tho
salary of a Minister, together with
watchfulness on tlio part of the loyal
element, would doubtless sorvo to
keep tho most zealous republican in
tho crowd on his good behavior, in
regard to existing institutions, for
the space of two years.
Mr. Turner Cites California.
1 thank Mr. Bishop for his court
eons reply and frankly admit that
ho has treated the subject in a man
ly way, without bigotry, and from
tho standpoint of a trained logician,
and hail as a hopeful augury the
fact that a man of his prominence
in tho literary world does not dis
dain to reply to a mechanic.
Mr. Bishop says that ho bolioves it
to 1)0 '"both wrong and foolish to
licenso any form of criminal acti
vity." There is a distinction between
crime and evil. No sensible person
will deny that gambling and opium
smoking aro ovils, though not crimes
do facto, though they may bo made
statutory offences. Mr. Bishop tacit
ly admits that prohibition will not
suppress the liquor traflic. Nor will
repressive laws subdue gambling.
On Derby day at Epsom, London is
nearly depopulated. Tho aristo
cracy, middle class, and dwellers in
Whitechapel all rush madly to
Epsom. Titled dames and first sea
son belles unite in patronizing tho
book makers. Thoro is a scone of
reckless speculation such as can bo
viewed nowhere in tlio world as is
witnessed at the annual spring moot
ings at Epsom. Tho late Tranby
Croft scandal that tarnished tho
blood-bought fame of a hero and
smirched tho honor of tho Prince of
Wales furnishes an instance of tho
prevalence' of play among England's
aristocracy. It must lie conceded
that England is in this respect no
worso than hor neighbors. I havo
cited her specially because she has
been one of the most potont factors
in- progiessivo civilization. Tho
gambling instinct booms to bo in
herent in mankind and the vice is
univorsal. I resided some years ago
in tho capital of California. Tho
average morality of tho people was
about on a par with that of other
large cities, Faro, poker, and other
games of chance flourished. A largo
brick building in tho heart of tlio
business section was occupied as a
gambling resort by the leading poli
tician, Jtopublican "Boss" and pro
fessional gamester, A. J. Hhoads.
Ho controlled tho ontiro political
machinery of tho municipality.
Tan and ch fa wore conductod
without intermission in Chinatown,
and' tho police wore bribed by
tho sporting fraternity to securo
immunity from arrest. During
the annual State Fairs, tho race
track, bunco steerers, thimblorig
men, wheels of fortune, and the
countless devices of sharpers to
entrap tho unwary were largely
patronized. At last a local election
resulted in the choice of a mayor
and other officers pledged to reform
these abuses. As a preliminary
measure an ordinance was enacted
granting to gamblers the privilege
of conducting their games upon the
payment of a large, stipulated sum
per quarter. The enacting clause1
provided that all games should bo
conducted in a room lacing tlio
street, on tho ground floor with tin
painted and uncurtained windows,
thus giving the fullest publicity. A
number of gamblers lookout licenses,
preferring to pay an ascertained
amount than to longer submit to
the extortions of the police, and
each licensee constituted himself a
private detective, and persons con
ducting illicit games woro arrest od
and fined. Several good results
woro noticeable. Tho municipal ex
chequer was replenished by license
fees and fines.
Previous to the passage of this
law dozens of young men occupying
positions of trust woro able to
tempt the fickle goddess Chance
in secret ami many tioiaications
ensued. But when thoir favorite
pastime became public, and the loss
of position was tho price of play, the
patrons of tho green cloth sensibly
decreased. During this regime tho
pulpit denounced tho city ollicors
for deriving revenue from such
sources of iniquilj". Tho fact was
dozens of games had ceased to exist,
and that the few licensed gamesters
wero obliged to uoponu almost
wholly upon ox-convicts, and tho
criminal element, that had nothing
to lose in self-respect, scorned to cut
no figure in tho case. At last the
consensus of public opinion secured
the abolition of tho obnoxious law
through tho election of a majority
of city otllcials opposed to the sys
tem. Tho old methods of bribery
wore at ouco rosorted to; "Frank"
Rhonda again became a politic.nl
power, and I noticed 03' press re
ports that ho was a delegate to tho
last National convention that nomi
nated Harrison. J no. Q. Brown was
president of tho board of trustees at
tho time I speak of (1 think it was
in 188.'5 but havo no data to refer to)
and is now a resident of San Fran
cisco and will attest tho truth of
those statements. Now, if my posi
tion is tho correct one, by all means
lot us have a legal lottory conducted
openly instead of the innumerable
gj'ines said to exist here. It is
stated, and tho fact is worth' of
credence, that hundreds of dollars
aro sent from Honolulu monthly to
purchase lottory tickets abroad. Our
national finances aro stated to bo
hopele'ssly in arrears. Wo aro thus
in the samo position that Louisiana
was when sho first granted tho lot
tory a franchise. Wo have a poriod
of commercial depression that has
followed our era of inflation, instead
of an impoverished condition of a
state after a long and unsuccessful
war. To roliovo the urgent need
and avert national disaster no plan
has been formulated by tho oppo
nents of tho lottery scheme.
One correspondent, "J. B.," wants
tho lottory people to exhibit 500,
000 in a show window as an ovidonco
of good faith. Our law-makers will,
no doubt, oxact a satisfactory guar
antee should tho bill pass. "J. B.'s"
inferences aro not very logical. Ho
wants to know how long Hawaii
would remain a mombor of tho Pos
tal Union if a lottory is established.
Probably as long as America did
while conducting hor lottory. "Wiry
did not "J. B." havo this moral
spasm years ago? Why did ho not
proposo to send back America's lot
tor' mail? And if sho insisted in re
maining a member of tho Postal
Union, why not havo sent a fleet to
land a force of marines on the shores
of Columbia and havo marched on
tho nation's capital and havo "torn
down tho flaunting lio" thnt waves
over Washington? Why does not
"J. B." (whom I do not identify) on
tor a protest against our contract
labor system which is iu direct con
llict with tho laws of tho United
States? Is the socrot of his silence
on that topic tho possession of sugar
slock? "J. B." should cease studying
"The Thomson Street Pokor Club"
and take a short course in Whatoly's
Logic. Another anti-lottorj' corres
pondent gravely assures us that "it
will break Dillingham," and Mr.
Huntsman in tho Liberal, after ox
hausting the Advertiser's ontiro font
of capital "I's," boldly asserts that
a railroad man is at tho bottom of
tho wholo affair. In 'the light, of
thoso inconsistencies, it is no wonder
that so many people see "as through
a glass darkly." Ralph Tuuneu.
