THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: HONOLULU, MAY 20, 1S9S.
W. N. ARMSTRONG EDITOR.
Under the constitutional limitation,
lho session of the Legislature is close
to its end, unless extended. The Sen
ate finished with commendable speed
its consideration of the appropriation
"bills, while it is the general impression
that the House has dawdled a good
deal. Just at present it has a violent
attack of economical grippe, and in
some instances has been nearly bent
double with the cramps of stinginess.
Inmany respects the Legislative body
is a study. President Hosmer should
have taken the advanced students of
Oahu College, in relays, and with
regularity, to these Legislative ses
sions, in order to give them object les
sons in the business of making laws.
If they did not obtain much instruction
in the theory and art of "how to do it,"
they would have have obtained much
experience and practice in the art of
"how not to do it."
The community would do gross in
justice if it did not recognize the value
or the services of intelligent, industri
ous men in both Senate and House.
Some of them have made decided sacri
fices in accepting legislative office. Their
contribution to the good of the coun
try should be and must be recognized.
The faults of the legislative body are
those usually found in bodies of this
character, composed of men without
party ties: At the beginning of the
session, the members of both branches
refused with some indignation any
government leadership. Every mem
ber seems to have carefully read the
political novel; "Go it alone, or every
man his own Boss." This was especial
ly the case with the "rosebuds" of the
House, many of whom felt very con
scious of profusely exhaling sweet leg
islative odors of knowledge. The
Ministers were insulted to some ex
tent. Each member of the Cabinet
was treated as if he were the "nigger
head" in the side show of the circus,
and the members who had a high duty
to perform shied missiles at him.
Quite too many of the members
spent their time in posting notices
all over the Legislative garden warn
ing the Cabinet to "keep off the grass"
or "no Ministerial dogs permitted to
bathe in this pond."
The consequence is that the Minis
ters, instead of acting as leaders of
the dominant party, as they do in
other countries, have been in the po
sition of kites without any tails to
If the members of the Legislature
had chosen to study their relations to
the people, and government, they
would quickly have discovered that
they were illustrating the political
blunders, and errors of the members
of the modern French Republican As
sembly, which refuses to trust the
government, and vainly attempts
crude, disorganized parliamentary gov
ernment, in , which every member is
the hero of the political novel we have
quoted, "Go it alone, or each man his
own Boss." If each branch of the
Legislature would, out f its contin
gent fund, purchase for each member
a copy of "France," recently written
by J. E. C. Bodley, a writer of much
power1, there would appear before
them, in rather a ghastly way, the
strange, inconsistent, and at times
ludicrous acts of the legislative body
of a new and great Republic, conduct
ed on the principle of no party lines,
as it is here.
Indeed, in reviewing the doings of
the Legislature, up to the present
time, the ruling idea seems to have
been, especially in the House, to re
gard the Executive departments as
not above suspicion, and at any rate,
not worthy of party leadership.
While the government generally
announced its policy, in the opening
of the session, it did not take the
usual means, commonly adopted in all
countries, of organizing a "machine"
to carry through its policy. It is not
enough to declare a policy. It is just
as necessary to hitch up legislative
teams that will pull it through.
The government did not do this,
the members of the Legislature did not
choose a leader out of their own body,
nor has the American Union party
tried to enforce several very valuable
measures, contained in its platform,
through want of a leader.
This general aspect of the Legisla
tive body does not call for any severe
criticism. It is an old story in politi
cal growth. It shows how a body of
men almost unconsciously are doing
her., just what other bodies of men
have' done elsewhere, under similar

One Large Scar

Neighbors Could Not Bear to Look
Upon Her A Crand, Complete
Cure by Hood's Sarsaparilla
After Others Failed.
"I was taken with neuralgia in my
head and eyes. Not long after this, a
scrofula sore appeared on my left cheek,
extending from my upper lip to my eye.
Other sores came on my neck and on my
right arm and one of my limbs. They
were very troublesome and painful and
soon became great running sores. My
face looked so bad that some of my
neighbors could not bear to look at me
and advised me to wear a bandage, but I
feared this would irritate the sore and
make it worse. So I
Could Not Hide the Sores.
My niece, who was familiar with a case
similar to mine, which had been cured by
Hood's Sarsaparilla, urged me to try it.
Finally I was persuaded to do so, and in
a short time I saw it was helping me.
The sores began to heal and the neu
ralgia in my head was better. In a few
months the sores on my arms and limbs
all healed; those on my neck gradually
disappeared and now they are all gone.
I have never had any symptom of scrofula
since. One large scar on my right arm is
all the sign that remains of my terrible
affliction. The neuralgia is also cured."
