Home Rule every race. is the natural right of 0e man rule is bad ; two-man rule is infinitely worse. ' Machixe politics are in full blast in Hawaii rioi. The bosses are on hand. The jubilee year should be one of general emancipation and progress, not of retrogression. We have to thank Brother Hill, of the "Bulletin," for a kindly mention of the new personal management of the Ad vertiser. The "Anglican Church Chronicle" has a strong article against gambling. Yet our religious friend likes "a quiet rub ber." This is in the line of Apostolic counsel : Let your moderation be known of men. Church building is a mark of civilized progression. It shows that the moral and conservative forces are in the ascendant. Honolulu is a city of churches, yet it goes on adding to them. The St. Andrew's Cathedral is the latest and most imposing structure yet at tempted in the city. The building fund obtained from the collection boxes up to July was $1,800. This will do for the present, as De Lease ps said of the sub scriptions to his Canal loan, but it must be kept up if the two projected hays are to be completed. A proposal has been made to the effect that all Government officials, except Ministers, should be elected. The "Bulletin" has taken a stand against it. So do we. The plan has not been tried in any country, or under any political system that we know of. In the United States the heads of bureaus, so to speak, are elected in the various States, but the working staffs of the National and State Governments hold office by appoint ment. Our evening contemporary rec ommends the adoption of the English civil service system. To this we de cidedly object. The Auckland "Herald," in a recent issue,contrasted the relative postal merits of the direct sea service to and from England and the Suez and Sydney route, with the California mail service. There was a gain of eight days in favor of the California service on the May mail as against the Suez-Sydney route, and of twelve days over the direct ocean service. The "Herald" is of opinion that with rapid transit across America and swift steamers on the Atlantic, the time be tween London and Sydney, via San Francisco, may be reduced by the Oceanic steamers to thirty-four or thirty five days. We are in a position to say that arrangements are well in progress at the present timo by the Oceanic Steam ship Company to reduce the time be tween the terminal points mentioned to thirtv or thirty-one days. MACHLNE POLITICS. The attempt to show that the machine ia not a machine in Hawaiian politics, and that there is no danger in engraft ing Boss rule upon our political system, made by our morning contemporary yes terday, was very ingenious, but not quite satisfactory. If the various ward clubs commit themselves blindly to vote for any candidates the nominating conven tion may select, without paving had an opportunity to inquire into their qualifi cations or antecedents, and without knowing what political programme is in reserve, they will simply perfect the machine and pass under Boss rule. Those who have had experience of the Bystem elsewhere understand this too well to need any demonstration on our part to convince them of it. The best safe guard is to bring candidates and voters j ..i .a - iiiiit.t''! that is i.tj reason why the surrender a! I control in of candidates for Nobles nt-cessarv clubs t-hould the selection and liepre-ier.fatives. The way to put an ind-f-ndf nt ticket in the field is to pres machine nominations ujon the clubs, who represent the electorate in the 'aggregate. MANhGOu SUFrKAGE AID QUALIFICATION. r-fiOPLRi Y There was a general enJuraernent of the Advertiser's declaration of princi ples yesterday. Exception was taken in some quarter to our franchise para graph. There is room for debate no doubt. The question has been satis factorily settled, however, in the United States, where manhood suffrage, minus a property qualification, works to a charm. It is the great educator of the American people, and of all foreigners seeking their shore, as it gives them a direct jersonal interest in the working of constitutional government. It has educated the freed men, raising them rapidly in the social and intellectual scale, because it placed them uion a plane of equality, in the eye of the law, with their former owners. The inevita ble tendency of manhood suffrage is to quicken the nation:: 1 conscience and create a wholesome public opinion. Property can take care of itself at all times. It does not need to be hedged around by exclusive privileges. There is no other country in the world where property is more secure, where capital is more profitably invested, or where it has more influence than in the United States, which is a manhood suffrage, non-property-qualification country. But we have not had manhood suffrage in this Kingdom. The Constitution of 18o4 provides a property qualification as one cf the conditions of voting; members of the House of Representatives likewise were required to josses,s a certain amount of property. The property qual iacation of representatives and electors might be increased by law, but could not bo decreased. It will be seen therefore that we are at variance with the princi ples and conditions of both old and new Constitutions in respect of the franchise and representation. We simply enun ciate a principle that we believe to be correct, and which has been adopted by two of the most progressive, enlightened and cultured nations on earth, the United States and France. And it may be added that England is fast coming to this crowning act of political emanci pation universal, or manhood suffrage. Our contention is that expediency can never outweigh fundamental principles of right and justice. Every expedient is at best a makeshift. In practical poli tics an expedient, although it may serve a temporary purpose, often leads to un pleasant consequences.

Last Saturday evening a German musical club was formed with Joseph Hubasch, President; E. Schultz, Secre tary; E. Wolters, Treasurer. Sixteen names were enrolled and the club will meet Saturday evenings. Declaration of Principle. The Pacific Commercial Advertiser having leen purchased by the under signed, it will henceforward be con ducted as an independent newspaper, in the interest of law and order. Its columns will always be open to the public for reasonable presentation of grievances, and the independent ex pression of thought and opinion. It will endeavor to get at facts of a public nature and present them regard less of consequences. Faction, however powerful, or usurpa tion however successful, shall receive no quarter. It will uphold the Constitution and laws of the Kingdom, and advocate equal civil rights for native and foreign born subjects. Class legislation and unequal repre sentation will be opposed as wrong in principle and contrary to the progressive spirit of the age. Manhood suffrage, with residence, should be the basis of the franchise, as in the United States. Property qualifi cation should be abolished. Office-holders and Government con tractors should not be eligible for nomination or election to the Legisla ture. Members of the Legislature should be debarred from accepting any office of honor, trust or emolument under the Government foi a period of twelve months after the expiration of the Legis lative term to which such members were elected. Ministers should be held responsible for all appropriations, and no money vote should pass without Ministerial ap proval. Reduction of taxation and economy in expenditure are essential to the pro gress and prosperity of the country. To that end a reorganization of the Depart ments is necessary. Personal fitness and a good reputation should be the only requisites for official appointments. This implies a thorough overhaul of the civil service. The military should be subject to the civil power. The independence and integrity of the Bench must be upheld. A corrupt or partial judiciary is a curse to any country. Encouragement should be given to immigration for the two-fold purpose of developing the natural resources of the Kingdom and rendering possible the es tablishment of new industries. The public lands should le adminis tered for the public good and not for the enrichment of individuals. A well-considered and feasible policy of improvement w orks should be adopted and adhered to. The United States being the natural market for Hawaiian products, public lHey should be directed toward strengt h ening existing political and commercial relations with that country. Honolulu should be proclaimed a free Iort, and increased facilities provided for the repair of shipping and the handling of merchandise. Steamship and cable communication with the Pacific Coast and Australia should be encouraged. Sugar being the staple product of the country, those engaged in its production are entitled to have their interests studied ! by the Government. i The public debt should not be in- j creased. There is ample revenue if an j honest accounting were made of receipts to pay interest on loan, defray reason able expenses of Government, and carry out a progressive system of public works. The public school system should be sustained and improved. Hawaiian children should be taught exclusively in English to equip them for the duties of life. Instruction in English alone should be similarly given to children of foreign parentage. The sanitation, lighting and improve ment of the city of Honolulu are matters of paramount importance. A policy of interior development, by means of highways, etc., will be advo- j cated. In brief, all matters and things J tending to the benefit of the country, and j to the promotion of peace, order and good government, will have an advocate ! and exponent in the Pacific Commercial j Advertiser. j Upon this platform the undersigned relies for public confidence and support. Robt. J. Creighton. Honolulu, August S, 1537. L.AUVE MAcS AiEIIXG. Ttie Ko)al anil Ministerial Kepi lei Rej wtel. A meeting of Hawaiians was held at Kaumakapili Churcn last evening for the purpose of receiving the replies of His Majesty and the Ministry to a petition recently presented by a committee del egated from a previous meeting. The number present was estimated at from 700 to SCO. Much enthusiasm prevailed. .Mr. H. M. Kahuiu presided. His Majesty's message was read by Mr. J. Keau. It referred to the alleged curtailment of civil rights, but His Majesty considered that they had been extended. Referring to a re quest made to call a special session, His Majesty stated that' he had not the power to do so under the new Constitu tion, which he had signed. The petition asked for the disbandment of all the military forces, except the Household Guard, as the petitioners were dissatisfied j with their conduct during the late crisis, j The King referred this request to his Cabinet. If he had considered that the Kingdom was endangered during the late crisis he would have declared martial law, but he did not think it was. Mr. Keau also stated that His Ma jest j- had said verbally that if he had believed the Rifles were doing aught to harm the people, he would have called upon his men to prevent them ; he would even have called upon the whole nation had there been need of it, and would have enlisted the aid of the man-of-war in port. But there was no necessity for this. The Ministerial reply bore the signa ture of His Excellency W. L. Green. It also referred to the alleged curtailment of civil rights by the new Constitution, but suggested that the petitioners had not rightly understood that instrument. It pointed out that under the old Consti tution the class whom the etitioners represented were allowed to vote only for Representatives i. e., one-half the Leg islature but under the new one they could vote for the whole Assembly. Therefore the- had the power to amend the new Constitution by electing Repre sentatives and Nobles, w ho would work for them. The other requests made were contrary to the new Constitution, and therefore His Excellency had been in structed not to grant them. A motion to adopt the replies was negatived, but a motion was carried ap proving of the work of the committee of twenty-rive who had presented the pe tition. Another object for which the meeting had been called was to nominate candi dates for the next Legislature, and the Chairman stated that an agreement had been come to among those who intended coming forward to abide by the selection which that meeting determined on. Those candidates whom the meeting re jected would retire. Brief speeches, all more or less con demnatory ot the new Constitution, were delivered by intending candidates. The speakers included Messrs. S. Kane, J. Kanui, J. Keau, W. C. Achi, S. M. Kaaukai, D. W. Pua, J. W. H. Wahi neaua, J. M. Kapena, A. K. Kunuiake and S. W. Mahelou. The hour being late, the nomination of candidates was postponed to a future meeting to be convened at the discretion of the committee. Pacillr Howe Company. The regular monthly meetingof Pacific Hose Company No. 1 was held last eve ning, Foreman Monsarrat in the chair. The most important business was that of discussing the matter of disbandment. Several of the members spoke at length, Mr. J. D. Tucker in particular. He thought it would be like child's play for them to disband because they had got beaten at the election. It had been stated that the Hose Company would not be allowed to have water when they at tended the next fire, but he did not think there would be any such difficulty. He was going to stick by the Company and work hard for it. Other members who had decided to support the motion to disband on Thurs day night stated that they had thought the matter over since and changed their mind. It was stated during the discussion that if the Hose Company disbanded there would be a new one formed at once. Foreman Monsarrat said he would re main with the company, and this de termined several other members. On a vote being taken, the motion to disband was lost. Mr. C. W. Zeigler, Delegate to the Board of Representatives, then handed in his resignation. He said he should sta.v in tne company, but he did not care t( g as Delegate to the Board meetings. The resignation was acccepted, and Mr. J. D. Tucker unanimously elected to fill the vacancy. Mr. Tucker thanked the members for electing him. He should work hard for the interests of the company, and he hoped before long they would have an engine of their own. The meeting then adjourned. Mauritius Sugar Market. The steamer Salzie arrived at Ade laide July 13th with news from Mauritius to June 25th, on which date Messrs. Ireland & Fraser report : "Weathercold and dry, thus retarding the harvest. The new sugar crop is estimated to prove equal to the last, and will be about a hundred thousand tons. The engage ments during the month include 5S0tons to Christchurch. The clearances include 193 tons for Lyttleton, and 250 tons for Port Chalmers. The stock of sugar on hand is 15,000 tons. The exports this season to New Zealand amount to 3,900 tons." lUCTIOff ! r.
