MOKE CURIOUS TAXATION.
In 'analyzing the returns made of
taxer assessed and paid, we nave nu
desire to create any prejudice against
the corporations. They are the present
basis of our prosperity, and are not
only entitled to protection, but to gen
erous moral support from the commun
ity. The facts which we have presented
regarding our system of taxation are
simply undisputed. Whether or not we
draw the soundest inferences from
them is another thing. If the system
as unjust the sooner it is reconstructed
by the Legislature, the better it will
foe. The dominant party can have :s
vn way at present.
When the table of the taxes levied
and paid during the year 1S97, is fur
ther examined, it appears that the Eu
Topeaii and American corporations paid
a real estate tax of $79,1G9, while the
-natives and part natives paid a tax of
them here, why should we invite set
tlers and tell them that it does pay?
Perhaps we do not like to say to them
that the freight on a small package of
vegetables from Maui to Honolulu is
more than the freight on the same
package from Honolulu to San .Fran
cisco. We do not like to put it into
our glittering hand-books that trans
portation from Island to Island, distant
only a few miles from each other is
about as expensive as it is from Hono
lulu to China.
If regret at the departure of Ad
miral Miller today, is any evidence of
a breach of neutrality, by this coun
munity, in the "unpleasantness" be
tween Spain and the United States,
then we have indeed grossly violated
international law, and may be duly
consigned to Spanish dungeons.
Regiments and Honolulu to .Meet
for First Time.
The two real baseball nines of the
1S9S league will cross bats at the Ma
kiki diamond this afternoon. A con
test worth while is anticipated, as the
teams have been playing and practic
ing for a couple of months and have
besides about the best material in the
Islands. Hart will appear in the- box
for the first time this year. His arm
seems quite strong again. He will pitch
for the Regiment nine and Lemon will
do the twirling for the Honolulu. J.
Hansmann, one of the best men the
Regiment team had, 1s out of it for t.he
season. He wrenched a knee in last
Saturday's game, and while able to be

By reason of our statement that the
dominant party is under obligations to

matter of taxation, we have received
several inquiries asking if we advo

ction of. the old argument used against
the abolitionists by the coppe-r heads:
-You wish to free the slave? Do you
wish your sister to marry a nigger?"
Ioing the Asiatics justice does not
make it necessary to give them the
franchise. That is, it ought not to be
necessary to give it to them. But if
our own sense of right and justice does
not impel us to be just, it will be "ne

So long as we are honestly attempt
ing to enforce "American Christian
civilization," here with justice auu
equity, the Asiatics may not be very
eager to ask for the franchise. But if
"Christian civilization" means unequal
taxation, or the commission of wrong,
or the omission to protect rights, we
may expect that, in due time, they will
look around for some way of securing
justice. It is easy enough to jump on
another, if you have tied him up hand
and foot. But if the other gets the
chance, and in time it comes, he will
give a return blow that may hurt.

does not necessarily involve the grant

States of America would not, if they
could, repeat the error of 1SG3 and give
the negro an unrestricted franchise.
