TUESDAY, JUNE 6, 1893. A PRIVILEGED CRIME.

Is bigamy permissible in Now Zealand? Wo of course know that at law it is a felony, and that it is supposed that the guardians of peace and order will arrest and prosecute tbo perpotratois of felony where Tor foundThe police authorities in New Zealand, how" ever, take a peculiar view of their functions. Wo have recently seen that they will not interfere if a Minister of the Crown chooses to start a gambling competition. Anyone who peruses the filc3 of New Zealand papers may at once perceive that the polico do not consider it their duty to enforce the provisions of the Offonsivo Publications Act when the offenders are of " the right colour,' ' and it has recently been demonstrated that it has hi thorto been doomed tbo duty of the police to take prize-fights under their special protection, patronising them by their presence, although, according to Mr Justice Conolly, such entertainments are altogcthor'eontrary to Lw, These eccentricities of police action might possibly bo regarded as amiable weaknesses, but we mnst draw tbo line at felonies, and decline to accept the police dictum that the number of wive 3 a man has, or the number of times a woman manages to go through the marriage ceremony without a funeral intervening, is merely a matter of domestic arrangement, with which the State has no ' concern. Possibly this may bo ono of tho dotaik of that Socialism which tho Minister of Education has recently been proacliing, bnt tho country is as yet soarcoly educated up to it Two cases of very recent occurrence prove, however, that the police aro further advanced, and better instructed in the new ideas. In the ono case a man was arrested at the Bluff on a charge of wife-dosertion, bronght to Wpllington at the public expense, and then allowed to go free without tho police troubling themselves about the allegations publicly made as to hi 3 having two wive 3in the oolony. We, of courso, do not know that this allegation wa3 true ; but the police were in a pobition to ascertain the truth, although apparently they did not consider it their duty to do bo, alleging as an eicueo that the bigamous marriage was said to have boun contracted in another colony, and that neither of the women concerned desired to prosecute. Tho first was an absnrd excuse, if the polico belioved a fi-lony had been committed. It was as easily provable hoi o — moro so. in fact, than in tho other colony, for the parties were hero. It is not usual for bigamists to commit matrimony more than once in exactly the same place. . Tho attempt to shift the responsibility of action in tho case roterred to on to tho shoulders of the polico of the colony where the second marriage was said to have been contracted, was quite unjustifiable. We should like to hear Mr. Jnstice Eichmond or Mr. Justice Conollt on the question of police duty in such a case, if tho point came before them. Wo do not think tho polico authorities wonld share our enjoyment on tho occasion. In another ease, in Hawkes Bay, a woman actually sued a man for maintenance, and ad* mitted in tho witness - box that he was the third man with whom she had gono through tho marriage ceremony, the two previous happy husbands having been got rid of without any formality of divorce, or loss of life. The polico considered this arrangement an eminently proper ono, not in any way demanding their interference bo long as the parties immediately affected were happy and contented. There is, of course, a rule well-undorstood and observed by prudent persons, which forbids interforence betweon husband and wife. The New Zealand polico, with an, exoess of prudence, extend it to non-interference between a raan and any number of wivps, or » woman and any number of husbands. In fact, according to tho police codo polygamy is quite permissible if all the contracting parties aro oontent, bigamy is no longor a crime involving any wrong to tho community, but a personal wrong for whioh a civil instead of a criminal remedy may bo sought. Wo do not think such a doctrine- is conducive to the maintenance of a high standard of social morality, and althongh it may obtain in this colony we are quito suro it is not recognised at Home. There tho police consider it their duty to prosecute bigamists as in any other matter of felony, and tho right of tho injured parties to condone tho offonce is not recognised. If wo mistake n.t, the Queen's Proctor usually considers it his duty to interveno when the commission of bigamy is relied on to establish the adultery necessary to obtain a divorce, but whero tho injured party has condoned tho criminal offence while seeking civil relief as a result of it. The sooner it is authoritatively settled in this colony, for tho guidance of the police and others, whether bigamy is morely a personal wrong admitting of a civil remedy, or whether it is a felony committed againßt " Our Sovereign Lady tho Queen, her Crown, and Dignity," demanding prosecution at tho instance of the officers of the law, the bettor it will bo for tho preservation of publio morality in this colony. Our reports of tho Hutt Borough Council meeting, and of tho presentation of prizes to the Lity Rifles, tho entries for tho Melbourne and Caulficld Cups, letters to the Editor, and sundry itoms of telegraphic news, aro printed on the fourth page. His Excellency tho Governor will be " At Homo " to welcome Hia Excellenoy Admiral Bowden Smilh on Saturday evening.

Admiral Bowden Smith will bs received on landing by a guard of honour of the Permanent Artillery, and a salute will be fired from the breastwork.

TUo Cabinet has definitely decided to appoint a number of new justices, as we leeontly indicated would bo tho enso. Tbo new api ointments will be chiefly in districts wliere tho need of more Justices has been felt. We regret to learn that Mr. Friend, Clerk to thn House, ia very seriously ill. Ho is suilering from internal inflammation. Tho Premier issued a circular tho other day with a view to suppressing glove-fights. Yet this morning's Times states that tho meeting ot a Government candidate for tho Rangitikei seat — that of Mr. Joseph Ivess at Ohingaiti— concluded with a glove-fight between two well-known pugilists. ' The romains of Mr. Claudo Hearn were interred in the Karori Cemetery this morning. The funeral procession left the late residence of deceased on tho Terrace at 9 30 tcr St. Mary's Catho Iral, whero the service for the dead was performed by tho Rer. Father Power.

It appears tho Wellington Theosophical Society, consisting of somewhere about a dozen parsons, has deoideil that the Wellington people are too apathetic to listen to thi3 modern apostlo of Thoosophy. After spoudiug a week with tho \ft>odviilo society, Mrs Cooper Oakloy proceeds co Dnncdin, at tho invitation of the lodge there, nml after visiting tho Brisbxuo lodges proceeds to India, whero tho various delegates are to meet, and roport the result of their various missions.

It ia oxpocted that most of onr leading amateurs wll take part, and that the boys will givp an exhibition of their physical training. Tho proceeds will be devoted to tho enlargement of the building, as the Institute is found to bo far too small to accommodate the largo number of boys attending parades, &o. A yory enjoyable entertainment under tho auspices of St. Mark's Temperance Society \\ as held in the sclioolror.m, Sus.'ex-sqnaro, last evening. Tho Rev. It.

A largo amount of other important business was disposed of. Tho President of tho Ladioß' Christian Association makes an appeal for donations of secondhand clothing for distribution. The full programme for to-morrow's Sixpenny Concert appears in onr advertising' columns, and is certainly not less attractive than the last. Patrons are advised to obtain day tickets from Cimino's musio warehouse, Willis-strept, or W. Marshall's, tobacconist, Ingestre-streot, next to the Rink. These will admit Ijy the Bide door, and enable the holder to avoid the orush. A soaial gathering of the Liberal Aesooiation is to be hold on the second Monday in July.

The Bill proposed to deal with the whole question of the sale of drugs aud poisons, and to meet such cases as that « liich recently arose at Blenheim. It proposed lhat all chemists who had branch shops would require to placo dnly qualified assistants in charge of them. Mr. Soddon, in reply, said it would bo impossible, with the business already in hand, for tho Government to bring in suoh a comprehensive lnecsnrc as that Fubmittod, but as regarded the qiication of the indiscriminate sale of poisons, Government proposed to bring in an amending Bill, entitled the Sale and Carriage of Poi=ona Bill, to eniorcethe rigorous ourry ing out of tho Poison 3 Act. and provent any chance of them bi ing mixed with foods. In dofending a oaso in the Magistrate's Couit this morning; Mr. Coates sought to make n point in his client's favour out of tho fact that the Court had nothing much to rolyupon iv support of tho charge except tho unsubstantiated testimony of two polico constables, when Mr. Martin interrupted him with tho remark, " And why not rely upon tho unsubstantiated testimony of tho constables, Mr. Coates t Constables aro just as rospeotablc members ot tho coininanity as anyone olso." 'Iho solicitor hastened to explain that in saying what ho did bo meant to cast no reflection on the pol : oe. Messrs.

The names of tho soloists aro given clsowhoro, and the full programme will appear in to-morrow's issue. The Victoiian Church of England Messenger writes: — "A 'Layman' having written a letter to tho Standard, wilh tlio praiseworthy intention of becuriuf* EiiKli-h congregations proper pro'ection agiinst ignoiant coloniuHy-ordaincd preachers of the stamp of Archdeacon (Jreon, or Cations Hand ti old or Potter, or tho lievs. J. F. Stretch or Reginald Stephen, the Rev. A. Lubyn Williams, ex-prmcipal of Mooro College 1 ivorpool, N S.W., has come forwaTd in defence of^Hho Australian ministry. ' l)oes a 'Layman," he asks, 'know aii3'thin£ of tho colonial clergy? UOO3 ho realiso that they aro, man for man, incomparably more ready and • of nioro popular gifts than our Fnglish clergy, aml v to say tho very lcafct, aa earnest iv their work? And docs ho realise that tho Church of England i 3 in our country parishes still dyinir of rcspeotabili y, and that our colonially - trained clergy havo just thote powois nhich are likely to attract our comitry peoplo bic'-c again to ns? I quite grant that the coloni.il clergy aro often not so polisho I ns tho-e from our English universities ; but (anil I speak from 17 j'ears' experience of tho training of young men for holy orders in England and Australia) thoir brains aro generally bettor, and theydotlioiiwork oxcellontl.v. Tho standard required by Iho A ustralian bishops is nh-eady very nearly, aud perhaps quite, as lik'li as at Home, and it is vory poi-«ibla that it will soon bo higher. Is not then the timo come to rather throw wido open tho doors of our English Church to all who have been 01 dainccl in our colonies, and to secure tint frcah blood in onr parishes which cirouni-tanoos seem to demand?" Tho inauguration of tho Canadiin-Aua-tialtan S.S. Company's line by th« steamer Miowera, from Sydney, on tho ISth May, was, Fiiys tho New Zealand Herald, mado the occasion of considerable enthusiasm. Shortly before thn departure of the steamer tho Premier (Sir George Dibb-), several ot tho Ministry and members of Pailiamont, and lepresontativcs of the shipping and commercial houses, paid a visit to the Miowora, and were received by Mr. James Huddart and Mr. Bums, tlio Sydney agont of the lino. , A number of gentlemen interested in tho lino went down as far as the Heads in the steamer, nnd during the trip assembled iv tho captain's cabin, where a few toasts wero piven and responded to. In responding to the toast of " Success to tho Enterprise," Mr. Huddart said a doubt had boon raised by some people as to the likelihood of two strainers being sufficient to carry out a sorvice of this nature, but ho believed tbat two vessels liko the Miowera and Warrimoo would be capable of performing tbo work in tho early period of tbo service He had, however, written homo giving instructions for another steamer to be built, which would be larger and moro powerful than cither of tho two vessels no-v in the trade, rts far as the Government of Now South Wales was oinccrii°d, ho might state that ho nab greatly encouraged with tlio attitude assumed by Mini-tors, nnd he felt suro they would do all thoy could to help the undertaking. He was also encouraged by tho* expression of suppo t received from tho mercantile classes geneially. Mr. D. E. Brown, as representative of tho Canadian Paci6c Railway Companj', said that from his stay in Australia he tolt very confident of excellent tiado relations being established between' Canada nnd Australia. Eftrything that could bo d»no to assist tho onterpriso would bo energetically undertaken by tho Canadian Pacific Railway Company. Messrs.
