A truly Republican government

protects each aud all who live undor
it but thoso are at Iho same motnont
the very pillars by which it is sup
ported This figure of speech is
trno likewiso of government by mon
archy for in this case the dome or
source of tho highest light and
power is held up by the aristocracy
and the people who have this com
mon pint of unioriiu their loyalty
to their ruler
THREE YEARS AGO A SMALL RINO
of sugar planters in the Hawaiian
Islauds took aivantago of a sort of
paternal oversight oxorcised by the
United States iu primitive mission
ary days and under cover of our
guns cajoled a native Quoen into
giving up her sceptre which was to
bo restored if the arbitrator so de
cided They considered themselves
sure of tho court before they tried
their case In this they wore not
only disappointed then but at
tho present moment they are study
ing political platforms and reading
reports of political discussions anent
our presidential contests and doubt
ing tho testimony of their own oyes
when they can discover nowhero the
least reforeuce to Hawaii They do
detect a possibility of a sugar bounty

This moauB that the United States
shall do avowedly what tho naval
officers havo been doing secretly for
over threo years namely keep Mr
Dolo and his associato conspirators

Do they fear a native uprising
Oh no there is no danger of that
Tho nohle resigned self sacrificing

that wo know it not but tho trouble
hero is that Dole Damon Co
limited fully roalizn thoir situa

Tho so called logislaturo was only
valuable as an argument for thoso
who say that a council of seven
could govern any one of our largo
cities far raoro wisely than any two
deliberative assemblies With her
16000 registered votes Hawaii was
not instrumental numerically in
selecting thoso mon save by about
one fourth tho 12000 wero disfran
chised aud of tho 4000 voting a
largo proportion had no further
qualification than that of having

a musket with as much chauco of

militia in timo of peaco Tho Coun

thero for tho purpose of quarrolling
with the Executive Department
A BILL FOR THE REGISTRATION
of all citizens was first passed after
having boon law some two mouths
without further enforcement than
that of taking tho moasure of Mr
Doles thumb it was found general

threatened to apply them to both
the teaohors aud scholars of tho
public schools and the Catholic
sisterhoods During the session of
the eo called legislature this official
was as wo used to say in collego
rusticated sont to Japan and
China at tho public oxponse because
he was supposed to bo an ombarass

these very people owo to him Gen

and Hawaiian rule has nover been
worthy of any other name it was
necessary to have a mild inahnored
man who should neither be afraid to
scuttlo a ship nor cut a throat and
this describes Gen Smiths legal
course he was just tho man for tho
place but it is a disgraco to Amer
