that, "while apparently the most just
of all modes of taxation, is in effect
more unjust than many others that
are prima facie more oujecuouuu4e.
His reasoning was sustained by the
W. N. ARMSTRONG EDITOR, actual experience of the United State?,
Commercial Advertiser.
MONDAY
JUNK 20.
THAT VICIOUS UKPUIiT.
The only issue raised by this paper
regarding the proceedings of the com
inittee of the House relative to the
conduct of the Superintendent of Pub
lie Works is that it has not given him
any trial, and has stated positively in
its report, and not conditionally, that
he is guilty of serious crimes.
Now in order to show that these
proceedings, conducted under the sus
picious leadership of Loebenstein, are
not made in good faith, we ask the
public to recall Article 35, Section 2
of the Constitution which provides
that the Minister of thenterior shall,
with the consent of the President,
appoint or remove the Superintendent
of Public Works. The Constitution
also provides that each Minister shall
be responsible for the conduct of the
departments under "him, and that he
may be, himself, removed from office
by the President and the rest of the
Cabinet.
Now if Mr. Rowell is guilty of any
one of the many charges made against
bim, all that any citizen, or member
of the House needed to do was to step
into tUe office of the Minister of the
Interior and say, "Mr. Minister, that
Superintendent of Public Works has
broken the law in regard to a building
contract (mentioning it), and he
should be removed. I demand it." The
Minister is bound under the Consti
tution to act, and if he does not, is
liable to removal himself.
Why has not this perfectly simple
course been taken during the last three
vears by the men who deem Mr. Rowell
eutltv of offenses? Wrhy has it been
left for. Loebenstein to develop all of
the quickening virtues, and go into
this elaborate attack on the Superin
tendent, by Legislative machinery?
Is the Minister of the Interior incom
petent or corrupt so that he cannot
be trusted? Do not these children in
the Legislative kindergarten see that
liv refusing to adopt the simple method
of reaching the Superintendent, as
pointed out by the Constitution, they
virtually charge the Minister of the
Interior with incompetency or,corrup
lion?
When that eminent patriot, E. B
Thomas, complained of the Superin
tendent because he did not get the
contract for building the Engine house,
and when Mr. Paris, of Kona, com
plained because he could not have it
his own way about roads, why did they
not simply follow out the constitu
tional method and call on the Minister
to do his duty and remove Mr. Rowell?
When men resort to a round-about
wav of doing things, there is a sus
picion that there is something that is
Tint "snuare" in the proceedings, ana
that they are afraid of taking the
.simnle method.
If the Minister cannot be trusted to
pass upon the case of a dishonest ofll
Hal. of his own appointment, he should
be removed. Possibly these members
who have not shown much loyalty to
the Government of their own creation,
may suspect the Minister's honesty,
.nn.l are restoring to the more eiauo
rate, costly method of removal by
imneachment.
If this is their plan, the Senate must
sit in judgment, and we shall have an
ll summer session of the Legislature
Tbey may impeach the Superinten
dent for crimes, and then impeach the
Minister of the Interior for not remov
ing a. man guilty of crimes. Loeoen
stein hopes to rake the chestnuts of
Tin wall's removal out of Legislative
fire, and like a cunning ape, is using
the cats'-paws of the members in pull
ing it out. He also adroitly uses the
cats'-paws of the Star, of thjp Indepen
dent, and of "Tomtit's Blizzard" (with
fresh blood from America) in doing
it. Loebenstein has not yet been able
to remove the President fof treason.
But he-succeeds in playing some of the
9 members of the House, and his news
paper allies for fools.
TUF, INCOME TAX.
under the Income tax law or lbh'j.
To collect this tax it is required that
. i ? . . i i - v. : i . : . v. i . ,
every individual snouiu eAinun m
books and papers to an inspector.
We have here 20,000 Chinese, many
of whom should pay this tax, if requir
ed by law. Does any one suppose that
an inspector will be able to "make
head or tail" out of a set of books
kept in the Chinese language? The
trained officials of the United States
could only find, in 1S72, 72,949 persons
in a population of 39,000,000 who would
pay any Income tax. Their books were
even kept in the English language.
The Chinese book-keepers would defy
any accurate examinations of their ac
counts.
The advocates of this tax may reply:
Let the Chinese go. Stick the white
merchants and planters." This might
be done. It is right here that the
injustice of the tax is apparent.
Our point at present is to ask the
young men of the Research Club to
watch the history of this Income tax,
if its collection is provided for by
law. Having before them tne opinions
after service, give notice by publica
tion at least six times in the Daily
Pacific Commercial Advertiser, a
newspaper published in Honolulu, of
the action and proceeding and invite
all persons interested to show cause
against it on or before the day assign
ed for hearing.
And of what you shall have done in
the premises do you then and ther:i
make due return together with this
Writ.

The Young men of the Research
Club, who are getting an education in
practical politics in these parts, should
carefully follow up the discussion of
the bill for an Income tax. It illus
trates the habit and practice of com
munities to work out their own salva
tion, with contempt for the experience
of othej- communities.
It is admitted on all sides that an
Income tax is theoretically just and
fair. But the writers on the subject
entirely disagree as to whether or not
it can be made practically fair and
just. We quoted the other day the
opinions ol Gladstone, Disraeli, Prof.
Rogers and the Supreme Court of the
United States against it. Mr. Glad
stone was recently called "one of the
greatest finance ministers that ever
lived." John Stuart Mill, whose works
are standard in all universities said:
"the fairness which belongs to the
principle of an Income tax cannot be
made to attach to it .in practice," and
