Tho uppor body of the Legisla
ture has made itself oitromoly un
popular by habitually going into
secret seasions Even tho Adver
tiser thooffioial orgau of the clique
kicks against the closed dorJrs and
Icioks in rain The imported editor
from Maine hates to be in the cold
and ho cannot find the MeaW
through which Tut Independent
gels facts and information
The Senate represents a portion
of tho tax payor and that supposed
to be the most solect Why then
should not its work bo published for
the bonofit aud information of tho
tax payers Tho Sonato is not do
ing anything wrong we presume
at least they oughtnt to and a
record of its official transactions
ought certaiuly not to injure that
august body
Everybody interested in the po
litical situation of the country
knows what is going on iu these so
callod sepret sessions The official
attempt to keop the work of tho
- Senate secret is simply a gross pieco
of cowardice which finds neither
admirers nor supporters except
amongst its doers
Our readers want to v know by
what reason Castle was confirmed
Tjy tho Senate If the discussion had
been fair and above board there
would have been no reason for us to
publish tho motive powor which
forced the whole Senate with ouo
exception into line
When tho doors of the Senate
were closed and the Castle mattor
was beforo the wise men his defeat
was assured Tho Senators and to
their crodit let it be said refused to
grant an appropriation to a man
who as was well known is to bo
the emissary of a private enterprise
now threatened with ruin and des-
But in the secret session we are
told aroo Mr Hatch who is just as
deepnn that muddy enterprise as
Mr Cattle is and he told tho Sen
ate that ho and his confreres would
forthwith tender their resignations
if the appointment of Castle was
not confirmed
Wo all kuow of Hatchs interost
in tho Castle appointment but we
fail to 8oo tuo importance of it to
Mossrs Smith aud Damon
Mr Hatcli has during the last
k ffiw weeks sacrificed everything he
possesses iu his efforts to help and
savo a cortain enterprise Mr Oastlo
is involved with Mr Hatch to such
an extent that his appointment to
Washington becarao a necessity
Wo admire Mr Hatch for living up
to the mark aud throwing good
money into tho tub to savo the bad
coiu already iuvostod But we ob
ject to his asking tho tax payors of
this country to sanction the expen
diture of au appropriation for an
onvoy whoao duty simply would be
to help along tho enterprise referred
to and whose official position would
have to bo used to give crodit
enough to prevont Mr Hatch from
paying for anothor cargo of coal
Wo have driftod somewhat from
our subject but wo think that the
few facts demonstrated which wo
have placed before our readers Ja
our usual delicate uinnuorynliould
tend to show tho citizonsdf Hawaii
that public affairs should be airotl
in public anil that uuderhandod
mothods will not work here to utter

The Advertiser wants a sooiety for
tho suppression of scandal 0 tem
poraf Omoresl When we think that
overy scandalous report appearing
in foreign papers rotating to tho
Quoen or the monarchy were always
roprintod specially in the Advertiser
and on its editorial page But sor
iously fancy what method could
such a society follow to suppress
scandal It would have to investi
gate aud thereby it would create and
spread the scandal vory often much
further thau would have been done
if tho society had let it alone If
you waut to stop scandal stop hypo
crisy neighbour Leave oil pre
tending you are Christian because
you shut your store on Sunday and
go to churoh and immediately after
church iu your own er your neigh
bors home proceed to do all thoso
things you solemnly have vowed not
to do or to leave Be con
sistent Act on weekdays as on Sun
days before tho public as behind

press scandal-
Thomas L Gulick has beon writ
ing to the New York Sun stating
that the natives now receive twice
as good wagoi as formerly aud that
the God of nations has signally
interposed in their behalf If these
statemouts are true what becomes of
Mr Schmidts depression in business
and how has the interposition placed
so many families of Hawaiians de
pendent on public charity These
one sided and deliberately mislead
ing attempts to bolster up favorable
press criticism abroad make us
weary How can the cause of an
nexation if it be righteous ever be
furthered by lies and deception
The only real fault with the Mc
Candless bill is the unconstitutional
provision it contains of retrospective
legislation That is it js made to
apply equally to vehicles in use be
foro the passage of the act as well
as those built aftor Change it so
as to apply to all future built or im
ported vehicles and it would hurt
nobody aud ultimately the roads
woufd bo benefited Do not be too
radical or try to give your friends
and backers too much work all at
once Go gradually
The point made by the Advertiser
that Senator McCaudless wanted his
own newspaper the Star to have tho
first shot at the Castle report falls
