The labor question, that great
leveler of political and financial theories,
is becoming a prominent feature
in the Colonial Governments of Australia.
The cry for bread, or rather
for labor, which, however, is the immediate
forerunner of the famine-cry,
is being heard throughout the length
and breadth of the Colonies It is
the rational and natural result of the
gilt-edged system of finance that has
prevailed in Australia.
Wages have been forced up by the
extravagant expenditure of the Colonial
Governments, in carrying out a system
of reproductive-works founded on
the "progressive borrowing" system;
but still there is a cry for labor and
bread. Why? Because wages have
been increased by artificial means in
connection with public works, while
private enterprise and industrial development
have stagnated. The practical
results of the "progressive borrowing"
system show that there is no connection
between the artificial developments
and the real industrial development
of the Colonies.
The Colonies now find themselves in
a position where they must do what
should have been done in the first place:
they must remove their present labor
difficulties by stimulating private enterprises
and promoting the real industrial
developments of the country. This is
the only practical way of renewing the
demand for labor and stopping the cry
for bread. Employment is given on
public works to their utmost capacity,
but the artificial demands will not sup
ply work for the unemployed muscle of
the country, which must be sustained
by actual industrial development, based
upon the natural resources of the
Colonies.
Expedients are being suggested, but
it is now doubtful if a crisis in the
Australian labor market can be
avoided. In the midst of apparent
prosperity the cry of distress and want
is heard. Depressions in trade have
proved the instability of the gilt-edged
financial system of the Colonies: the
Governments are now looking for a
solution of the industrial calamities
brought about by a lack of political
prudence and forethought It is the
old story.
Disguise the fact as they may, the
people have seen and heard enough to
know that the "progressive-borrowing"
system is to be tried by this Govern-
' ment in the next Legislature. It has
been openly denied by the Government
organ, which has gone to the extent
of publishing the statement that
the Colonial system of borrowing
would not be approved by the Advertiser!
I But still it is a fact, that the
King's heart is set upon a large loan to
be based upon future possibilities.
Flattered by his Ministry and connived
at by a native Legislature, he
may be able to obtain a part or, under
certain circumstances, all of the amount
he desires. A Ministry true to the
cause of people generally and to the
tax-payers' cause in particular, would
frown down such a suicidal course.
The great and vital question, whiqh
will come before the next Legislature
will be the financial question. It is
useless to cite the appropriations of the
past : what we must do is to battle
Jagainst the abuses of the future, which
;aje more dangerous to Hawaii than ajl
her dead deeds done by former legislative
bodies'. Ten million and a spend-
thrift Government will soon be parted j
but the taxpayers and the poor natives
are here to stay at least for a time.
Our labor question so far has been
regulated by the growth of our industries.
The natives are already taken
with the new system of "progressive-borrowing,"
which promises increased
wages and better times, to be brought
about by artificial means. Our debts
ought to be kept within our probable
revenues and our revenues should be
estimated from our industrial develop
ments. The political policy which
carries the "country farther than this is
driving the Hawaiian monarchy between
the two alternatives of suicide
and revolution.
Miatnlcon Identity.
Let us go back to 1500, to a French
case, that of Martin Guerre, which
came before the Pafliament of Toulouse
in that year, and certainly sounds more
like a fiction than a true story. Martin
Guerre, foolish man, left his home and
wife for eight years. Thereupon one
Arnauld Dutille made his appearance,
bearing a great resemblance to the
errant Martin, was received by the wife
as her husband, and took possession of
the property. Children were born to
them, and for three years Arnauld
Dutille was accepted by Mme. Guerre
and Martin's four sisters and two
brothers-in-law as her lawful husband.
The matter however, fell into dispute,
and then came the tug of war. Hundreds
of witnesses were examined,
and of those some forty swore that the
impostor was Martin Guerre, while as
many were equally positive that he was
Arnauld Dutille, and again a number of
juuicious persons lesiinea mat tne men
were so much alike that they could not
decide which was before them. The
Judges ' were naturally very much
puzzled, and Arnauld Dutille brazening
the matter out with consummate
effrontery, they were positively on the
point of deciding in his favor, when the
real "Simon Pure" appeared on the
scene. Martin Guerre claimed his
own, and the imposture collapsed.
Equally curious in its way was the
claim of Pierre Mege, a soldier, to be
the son of a certain Sieur de Caille,
who had fled to the Savoy being a
Protestant, on the revocation of the
edict of Nantes. His son died in De
Caille's presence at Vevay, but never
theless the impostor was, after a trial,
declared to be the said son, in spite
of documentary evidence from Switzer
land of the man's death. The wife of
Mege, however, let out her secret, and
on an appeal the Parliament of Paris
decided against him. This imposture,
as has been pointed out, was in many
respects like the Tichborne case, for
there seems to have been no points of
resemblance at all between the two
men.
Another cause tried in France was
that of Baronet, who was condemned
to the galleys on the false evidence
of his sister, who had taken possession
01 nis property, dui ne aiterward re
gained his rights, mainly owing to the
evidence of Louis, a celebrated surgeon
of the period. CasselPs Magazine.
Bnglo Calls.
Considering the length of some of
the calls, it may surprise the reader to
hear that there are only five different
notes played on the bugle, and though
that is the case, the language of the
instrument is not at all limited. A language
with only five words might be
thought easy to learn, and yet the different
arrangements of these "words"
("sentences" as we may call them) are
endless. It is, indeed, a very necessary
part of a soldier's training to learn the
language 01 tne Dugie, ana even un
musical men soon acquire it. For in
the first place, the same "calls" sound
much about the same time each day
a hungry recruit, for instance, does not
take long to recognize the "Dinner
Bugle," nor does the careless soldier
forget the summons to extra drill,
much as he might wish to do so. The
men in their barrack-rooms, too, often
associate words with the notes of the
bugle, and that is a help to remember
the meaning of the sounds heard. The
authorized course of instructions for a
bugler is to begin by playing the lowest
note with all the variations of time of
duration. The same exercises are then
taught on the second note, G; these
two notes are then combined in a variety
of ways, after which the original
one-note exercises are taken on the
third note of the bugle; and when perfect
in that note, exercises are played
with the three notes combined, and so
on with the others.
Anecdote of Dumas.
Richard Wagner received his visitors
in mediaeval costumes, such as he always
wore when composing. Alexandre
Dumas, the elder, calling on him
one day, was highly amused at the
masquerade. "You are all dressed up
to play Gessler," said Dumas, with his
good-natured laugh, which rather hurt
the feelings of the author of
who nevertheless returned M.
Dumas' visit when next he was at
Paris. After some considerable delay,
M. Dumas appeared at last, dressed
magnificently in" a dressing-gown with
a large flower-pattern, a helmet with
flying plumes, a life-belt round hjs
waist, and enormous riding-boots.
"Pardon me," said he, majestically, "for
appearing in my working costume. I
can do nothing without being dressed
in this manner ; half of my ideas live
in this helmet, and the other half are
lodged in my boots, which are indispensable
to me when I write my love
scenes."
"The dairy products of this country,"
yelled an orator at a fair, "amount to a
hundred millions, and the industry is
still in its infancy." "Wrong," cried a
cute bystander; " it is infancy that Is
still in the dairy business." Judge,
