One afternoon this week a physician of Ho
nolulu noticed a sick Chinaman with the
prison gang on the streets who was scarcely
able to walk. He took him home and attend
ed to him and afterward telephoned to the
prison. They knew nothing alwut the case
there; did not know that any prisoners were
missing but would find out. They soon tele
phoned lock that they had made a count and
found one man missing. After a while an
officer was sent for the man and look him to
the pason. What kind of management is in
practice where a prisoner can be absent for
several hours without being missed ?
A friend hands us an extract from a letter re-

The VlMilvrf Afwthljr tut Dcccuilicr is a

Sugar and HIce Crops." The communications,
all instructive, aret "Neesl of a Chemist,"
"Choice and Care of Horses," and "Sugar
Plantations in early days In the Hawaiian Is
lands." The items, which coser three and a
half sages, are very Interesting. The "Ap

I'linoK Saiijkiiav Pkkss i Good men
dilfer radically, and honestly, in regard lo the
liesl methods of suppressing inlemier.ince.
Hut there is one plnse of temperance work in
which all cm ngrev, and in which nil who wish
to save their fellow men from this great sin,
can unite. I refer to prevention saving the
youth, and young men rspcchlly, from ever
forming Ihe Inlitt of drinking. This pr.1ctic.1l,
common sense way of suppressing drunkenness
is very hrgcly ignored liy temperance worker.
It is true tint it is .1 more quiet, retiring w.iy
of working ; it does not employ brass hinds ;
its leaders arc not "lioniml ;" it docs not
sttike ami d.iule the unthinking by exhibiting
the "brands" it Ins "plucked from the burn
ing" fire of drunkenness. l!ut where it is effi
ciently, rwrsittcntly, and wisely pushed in any
community, Ihe results for good sur'iass ten
fold the ordinary so called "temperance work"
of reclaiming drunkards. It is much Utter to
save a man from falling thin to wait till he
falls, nml then pick him up bruised, ilchiscd
and degraded from the gutter, and try to re
construct his shattered manhood.
I write especially in the interests of a large
class of homeless young men clerks and
mechanics, and working men, huddled in the
hotels, lioarding-houses, etc., of Honolulu.
Now, don't lie horrified when I say that the
rum-shop supplies a real want of this class.
There is no other public place in this city
where young men may meet, in an informal
way, to enjoy each other's society, and amuse
themselves with games. The average young
man does not care much for reading, especi
ally after a hard day's work. He is a social
creature, and after his day's work is over, likes
to go uku the street to see " the liovs.t" piss
ing his time in a well-lighted and furnished
room, in a friendly chat, or trying his skill at a
gime of billiards. There is nothing in these
desires but what is natural, nothing wrong.
Where can such a young man go in Honolulu?
There is but one place the saloon.
They do things' belter in fioston. Tint old
1'iiiit.in city h.is " sought out many witty in
ventions," but none that seems to me more
common sense thin the one described in the
following, which I clip from the lloslon corre
s'Hjntlence of a Chicago paper :
" I wrote you last winter aliout the opening
in this city of a large coffee-house. The expe
riment has proved in its various phases a thor
ough success. Patrons at first came in shyly,
suspecting it was sonic new charitable device,
but finding it a true business enterprise, laid
aside their hesitation. The Casino is well
located on Washington street, its rooms are
airy and pleasant, ami the lunch counters fur
nish simple refreshment at slight cost. Coffee
is served ill cups of three sizes, at two, four
and six cents rcsK-clivcly. I have never tasted
a choicer beverage thin the two-cent cui
may it bea six-cent the next time 1 lo which
I was invited last spring. On one side of the
building is a spacious room designed for
women with or without escorts. It is supplied
with tables, a piano, books and iapcrs, and
here simple entertainments, musical or drama
tic, are sometimes given. In the room exclu
sively for men, smokim is enioved. billiard
tables aic at hand and may he hired, Iml no
lie-tling or games is permitted. The patronage
lias lieen abundant and of hist the class de
sired. It was not cx'icctcd that the intemper
ate would leave their haunts for a clean hall
ami no liquor, The aim was rather to furnish
a cheerful place of result for homeless men
and boys who, lacking homelhing better, arc
likely lo Unit Into saloons. 1 trust the tune is
not far distant when the saloons will find these
cotfeu houses formidable rivals. A second,
the " Alhmibra," has this week lieen opened
just off ilowdoin Square. The- location is ex
cellent ami the api-ointments liner llian at the
asino. Whatever ilillercnce as to uicllioils
divide te-miicrance men, here Is a common
ground upon which all may stand.
Now, Is this not an Idea that should lie uti
lized in Honolulu? There is money in it for
any man, or set of men, who will lake hold of
it. It is not a " Boston notion," that will
thrive only in that latitude-, for three such in
stitutions, alt layiug their proprietors hand
somely, are now in existence In Philadelphia.
I know the ready answer of some te-mjier-ance
workers! That the new V. M, C. A. lull
will meet this want. Perhaps it will. Hut I
doubt if it will supply the needs of Ihe class I
liavc in mind. What they want, I not charity,
not something free, but a genial place where
they can go and Vy Iktir trsy, and find so
ciability. Ihe average young man dues nut
widi lo lc reformed, and i suspicious of any
covert attempt to Improve him.
The saloons meet his social wants, in a very
imperfect way, and at hi moral peril. Hut
they permit him to keep his indeiemlcnce, by
nuking him uy his way, and they furnish a
place w here lie can socially meet hit fellow 1
a thing which the temperance woikcrt have
so far failed to provide for this class.
Who will start a "Casino," in Honolulu,
