The Legislative Assembly adjourned
at noon on Saturday, after passing to
third reading bills relating to the pro
tection of game and the carrying of fire
arms. There is great need for the en
actment of a law to prevent the destruc
tion of wild birds. In a few years sev
eral varieties of birds will be extermi
nated unless a close season is enforced.
The bill which will pass the Legislature
meets with the approval of sportsmen,
who should take pains to have its pro
visions carried out. Insectivorous birds
especially have strong claims to protec
tion for the good they do. Indeed, we
think that it would be advisable to in
troduce a greater variety of this class of
birds than are now in the country.
They might destroy fruit to some extent,
but this would be far more than counter
balanced, by thnr destruction of insects,
which, if unchecked, would soon become
a pest to agriculture generally.
The suggestion made by His Excel
lency Mr. Gibson in reference to the
protection of food fish was an admirable
one. There can be no doubt whatever
that Chinese fishermen use nets, the
meshes of which are too fine. By so
doing they catch and destroy myriads
of young fish before they reach a stage of
growth which renders them fit for food,
and thus make the supply scarce. As a
matter of fact, our waters have been
overfished, and it would be sound
policy to enforce a tabu on
fishing at certain places for several
years, as well as to regulate the
nets to be used. Fish enters so largely
into the food of the Hawaiian people
that their protection from wanton de
struction becomes a question of public
policy and should not be neglected. 3Ir.
Gibson stated that he would introduce a
short bill on the subject.
The report of the Bureau of Immigra
tion was presented by I lis " Excel
lency Mr. Gibson, who paid a de
served compliment to that document,
which had been prepared by his prede
cessor, Mr. Gulick. The English version
of the report had been ready long ago,
but the delay in printing the Hawaiian
version prevented an earlier presenta
tion to the House. This report is a val
uable historical compilation, and fur
nishes reliable and complete informa
tion regarding immigration to this King
dom. The Committee on Commerce re
orted adversely to the petition of the
growers and exporters of bananas. It
asked the Legislature to regulate steamer
freights by discriminating in their favor.
This is not the function of the Legisla
ture. It should interfere as little as pos
sible with trade and commerce, which
always thrive best when left unfettered.
Once introduce the element of legal dis
crimination in the carrying trade and
unpleasant complications would soon
arise. As the committee suggested in
it3 report, the question of freight could
be amicably arranged between the par
MR. DOLE AND THE MILITARY.
Mr. Dole is certainly entitled to the
benefit of the doubt suggested by his
personal explanation in the Legislature
on Saturday last. He did not charge
the military with cowardice in express
terms, but he went so very close to the
Iointlhatit was excusable in anyone
to push his argument to its legitimate
conclusion. His remarks were not by
any means confined to a criticism of the
organization and discipline of the mili
tary, as he attempted to show on Satur
day, for he went the length of declaring
his belief that the soldiers were not to
be relied upon in an emergency. He
said, as reported, that "he could not
think what soldiers were wanted for j
here beyond show. Ii any disturbance j
arose, civilians could le put clown as ,
ready to assist, and they would be more j
reliable than these guards." Now, this j
may not be a specific charge of coward- j
ice, but it would suggest it to any
ordinary mind. Mr. Dole says that he
did not and does not question tne per-1
sonal courage of Hawaiian soldiers; he;
only said that they are not to be de
pended upon in any case ot emergency,
and that they are kept for show and not
for ue. A . we have already remarked
however, Mr. Dole is entitled to the k-n-efit
of the doubt uion thi. point,
and we are therefore ;repared to ajolo
jizefor nii-ivprev;ntin him to that ex
tent. At the same time, it should n"t
he forgotten that at the very outlet of
: his remarks on Friday he said that he
was willing to take the risk of being
called disloyal for satirizing the soldiers,
j And in that spirit he proceeded to be
little and cast ridicule upon the King's '
Guards as an unreliable military organ- j
ization. VVe 'submit, therefore, that lie j
has only himself to blame for the wrong :
impression his words conveyed, and we j
sincerely hope that this will be a lesson j
to him to be more guarded in future, j
Mr. Dole has an unfortuate tendency to j
indulge in reckless statements, and to J
make sweeping and unjust charges, j
This is unfortuate for himself, because it j
mars what otherwise might be a useful
public career. If he would be advisr-d
by the Advertiser he would find him
self a greater olitical force than he is
now, or is ever likely to become by in
sistence in his present line of conduct.
Ilefrring to the discussion on the mili
tary vote as a whole, the Opposition did
not manifest either a spirit of loyalty or
of fi.irne.sss, and we submit that these are
motives which should govern the actions

Everything passed off to the great
pleasure of all. Hilo ieople cannot be

Yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock a
fatal accident occurred in Kaai's house
mauka the Queen's Hospital, which re
sulted in the death of a native child
named Kalau, aged two years and seven
months, the son of Samuel (k) and
Kaawa (w). The story told by Kaai to
the Marshal, Mr. Kaulukou, who ar
rived at the house shortly after the oc
currence, is substantially as follows:
The child's parent's live near Kaai's
place just mauka the Queen's Hospital.
Yesterday afternoon shortly before 4
o'clock the child came into Kaai's house.
Kaai had left a loaded pistol and cart
ridges on a table in the room. The
child took the pistol from the table to
pla.v with and accidentally shot himself.
The pistol bullet entered the face at the
left side of the nose and came out of the
head near the right oar. Death resulted

seem to be altogether satisfactory to the
