Jt linrtlly requires a super
natural yift to prophesy that tho
people of tbo United States will,
bnforo many years elapse, repudi
ate tin) uonstiuotiou just placed
upou tho Constitution by tho
Supremo Court, which pushes
Aninricnn spiunon outsido tho
palo of humnu rights as defined
in that great document. In tho
AiAgo decision a majority of tho
Suureuio Court as reported pro-
viously in this paper hold that
tho imprisonment of seamen for
dosertiou is not "involuntary ser
vitude," thoreforo tho laws in that
regard nro not contrary to tho
Thitteenth Amendment. Thero
was a largo mass meeting hold at
Sau U'raucisco tho night of tho
second of this month, to support
the bills ponding in Congress to
abrogate the laws thus upheld by
tho Suproiuo Court. Oue of tho
speakers was Alfred Fuhrman,

nuy precedent in these timo-hon-ored
laws, which had tho sauction
of many countries, but held that
his inspiration for his decision was

that "Bailors and soldiers must bo
the exception in laws providing
for the freedom of Euglish sub
jects." That, ho said, was all well
enough 150 yeurs ago, when Eng

but in tho light of the spirit of
these times the "provision was

laws enacted agaiust seamen are

existing the flag is a hollow
mockery to Jack. Whou you hear
of theso things you do not wonder
that American boys never go to

purtiean moasuro, but a question
Tho judiciary has in different
countries been the last power to
concede the principles of freedom.
In the United States it was among
the very last backers of slavory.
It looks as if it might uow hold
the same uuenviablo positiou with
xegard to laws which, aB has been

By tho decision of the Supreme
Court on tho appeal of tho Inter

Saturday the taxation of tho
capital stock of corporations at its
market value, as provided in the
now law, is confirmed, Thoro
ought to bo no great difficulty in
getting at a fair approximation of
tho market value of stocks. It
jvould be facilitated if Honolulu
liad a Stock Exchange, but, until
that comes, there aro the lists of
stock brokers to go upon. Tho
prinoiplo is upheld, at all events,
and tho courts must bo relied on
to prevent injustice.

These aro days of considerable
auxiety und perplexity to all who
have possessions or other interests
in tho Republic of Hawaii, and it
is time that our citizens came to a
mutual understanding on several
important issues. Tho prospects
for Annexation appear at present
vague and iudistinct, and our
destiny cannot bo- foretold with
certainty. Thero are those, also,
who still fondly cling to the hope
of a return to tho old order of
things, and who cannot be per
suaded otherwise, yet this out
look appears far moro hazy than
that of Annexation oven to tho
most hopeful disciples of tho
Monarchy. But, fortunately, in

A circumstance U jut reported
which calls to tho public mind
once iiioio that thiilling event in
English history- tho mutiny f
tho Bounty. When tho mutineers
cast their captain and others of
his crew adrift in an open boat,
and themsolvos nailed oil with the
Bounty, they lauded at Pitcairu
Island. Ab years weut by nnd
they increased in number, they
wero removed to Norfolk Isl
and, under the Now South Wales
Government. It is at Norfolk
Island whero they aro now locnt
ed, ami tho admini'trntion of the
plnce has been left in their hands.
Bepoits of unsatisfactory ad
ministration of justice reached
New South Willi's, and an inquiry
was made. Considering that the
reports wero too well founded, the
New South Wales imthoiilies tie
cided to chaugn the system of
government, and the hint Australi
an mail brought particulars of tho
proceedings. Lord Hampden, tho
Governor-Genet id of Now South
Wales, in H M S Kntoomba,
visited Norfolk Island, taking
with him Colonel Spalding, O M"
G, who waB installed chiof magis
trate. It was gonorally thought
that sonio show of hostility to tho
new regime would bo mado, but
nothing of the kind occurred.
The leadiug man of the place was
Mr F M Nobbs, uud it transpired
that the families of this man num
bered over three hundred. The
whole population of the island is
not much over COO, so that tho
Nobbs family or families com
prise half of tho population.
StrnugeVs nro practically excluded
from the island, or, nt any rate,
not encouraged, and this, together
with tho groat preponderance of
the Nobbs, shovs that there has
been an inter marrying of a very
undesitablo nature. His Excel
lency Lord Hampden called a
public nieetiug, and read tho pro
clamation altering the constitution
under which Norfolk Island was
governed. This was received
graciously by the islanders, and
in their address they stated that
the inhabitants of tho Norfolk
Island yielded to none in their
dovolion nud lovo to Queen Vic
toria. Colonel Spalding was
formally installed as chipf magis
trate, and tho Kntoomba left. Tho
effective force to assist the new
commissioner to com pel obedience
to tho law consists of ono police
man. Colonel Spalding was get
ting a cominitteo of elders elected
to nssist him in governing tho
island. Liverpool Journal of
If the demand of the sailors
thnt they bo treated as other Am
erican workingmen are is acceded
to, tho San Francisco Chronicle
sayH.thero will be njuch disgruntle
ment in those maritime countries
which huve a low rato of wages
for seamen. Under tho present
system a man shipped in a low
wages port can bo compelled to
return to the same, but if he has
the privilege of terminating his
engagement whon he reaches a
country where tolerably decent
wages are paid, tho inevitable re
sult would bo to raise tho scale in
the low-priced countries. Tho ex
isting system is destructive to Am
erican competition in tho foreign
carrying trade, because sailors
shipping in United States ports
will not leave their vesaol when
they rench countries where the
rato of cotupensntibn is much low
or thau they nro accustomed to.
In other words, so long as our laws
mako nn exceptiou of Jack, nnd
make liiin servo out his time
whether he is well or ill treated,
just that long will tho foreign
shipowner enjoy a decided advan
