A meeting of the Cabinet, we umlcrMaml,
held tin Thursday list ti comiilcr llie ail
isaliilit), or otherwise, of calling a special
scMion of the legislature during the time of
the proposed coronation. Now the constitu
tion pros ides, by Article IS, as follo: "The
King, by anil with the advice of hi, prisy
council, convenes the lgislatise Asscmbl) at
the seat of (oscrnment,or at a dilTcrcnt place,
if that should ticcome dangerous from an
enemy, or any dangerous disorder i and in
case if any disagreement between 1 lis Majesty
and the legislative Assembly, he adjourns, pro
rogues, or dissolve it, but not lieyond the next
ordinary session ; under any great emergency
he may comene the Legislature to extraordi
It has liccn held by some who wish to shose
up the foolery that is about to be consum
mated, that Article 46 affoids ample justifica
tion for the King to act his own discretion in
the uiAttcr of assembling the legislature ; but
there are happily few who would submit to
such an interpretation. It is cs idem to any
thoughtful mind that the intention of the con
stitution is clearly that there should le regular
sessions held, and that special sessions should
net lie called excepting they be made necessary
by the occurrence of some scry extraordinary
and unforeseen event. It is generally under
stood that th proposed sccial session is for
the purpose of obtaining additional appropria
tions of money in order to carry out the corona'
lion, the appropriation already otcd ha.ing
been exhausted. Upon this matter let u, say,
that she present state of affairs is no unfore
seen contingency, but one that m anticipated
not only by the outside community, but by the
ministry themsches, and the speech of J. Molt
.Smith in opposition to the coronation on the
ground of the inevitable and enormous expense
it would involve, well fitted the occasion, and
will lie long remembered as a timely, temper
ate, but unheeded opinion and argument. It is
also patent that members of the last session
w ere promised that ihey should be called again
in February iSSj, so that if the pretenceof an
emergency is now sought, it must have been
an emergency that the King and his Cabinet
sought and designed to create. The Cabinet
well Inow that so insignificant an appropria
tion as $15,000 was altogether inadequate to
meet the expenses that would arise in carrying
out the programme that they themselves had
made, and it was the Lnow ledge and the an
ticipation of an enormous additional outlay
tliat united the voice of the country against so
useless a ceremony. Under the circumstances
w e cannot w ondcr that even so servile a min
istry as arc now- in office should object to an
extra session. Let it be, and we have no
more guarantee of faith under the constitution
of the land one jurt so openly and unjustifi
ably broken, all may follow.
"PIPING TIMES OF PEACE."
It would seem that preparations for comcrl
ing Honolulu Into a military camp are still
being mule. It is well known that large ap
propriations were utsed for this pur jxe by
the but Legislature; that the sum of $15,00
was appropriated lor the purchase of improsad
ordinance in Vienna, which look the King's
e)c while he was abroad ; ami that a quantity
of small arms and ammunition was sent for
some months ago. A few days since the pa
pers noted thcarrisalof 475 rifles and car
bines with ammunition, etc Some time be
fore llut other war material aimed. At home
also, the King las been active in awakening a
military spirit among Ihe eopIc. The cavalry,
artillery and Infinity companies base been fic
ruicntlyaml more thoroughly drilled of late,
and the numlier of memlivrs Increased, The
buys in the street have been drilled by the
King in person ami hts officers, ami many of
the latest acipmltioni to the ranks of the sot-
unlecr companies are )oung boys. Nothing
has been left undone to Incicase the army (?)
ami supply it with proper accoutcrmrms. The
only company of foreigners, the Hawaiian
Ciuaids, was iliilianded some lime ago, and at
picsenl a movement it on foot fur the organl-
lailon til a cimijuny of half whiles. With the
recent acquisition of improved arms ami those
of almost olnilctc pattern that hate been in
piMsession of the government for scats, there
will be enough la supply alb
And now, we ask,wlulU I he meaning of
all this, and where will il end? What is there
lo Induce this arming? What danger threatens
at homo except llut caused by lite actions of
IhcM same parties who are promoting it? An
army is an eirxruit? luxury. It Is entircV
unnecessary here, ami the King, mlnlucr or
other officer who advsalr such measures In a
country like Ihe Hsuananllrigdoiolsanenemy

tend tu force his own Ideas of autocracy, hich
base developed abnormally since hi, return
finm abroad, down the thrrmt of every Inrtsbi
taut of the group, whether they will or no?
1 1 mast le admitted that where such a spirit
preTaili a shadow of danger may lw lurking
about. The King Is mil imking himself Ihe
mmt spul.u of mmmiclM, and romptiinU mvy
Ikt heard from among his own people every
day. If by the actions nf Ihe government the

OVK WATER SUPPLY.
In mir last Iwtie wc ndscrtrsl In the fact lint
the lower poitlnn of the slope under I'mich
Imwl Hill, lietween the stone quarry of Mr.
Lishnran ami the upcr end of Ilmmi street,
wa, lieing rapidly Killed ; that new lots were
being constantly measured out, and that new
Imllilings wtrelielng constantly erecteillhcrctm,
Now, while, as we have said lieforr, it may be
pleasing to note such marks of nn Incirasing
Hipulatinn, there are other considerations in
volsesl in the subject rrfcired lo not less
worthy of our thought, though certainly less
pleasant to contemplate, liml and tcicnted
mmplalntj havclieen freely uttcreil nlmut the
already scanty waiter supply of Ihe town ! and
Itforc Ihe supply had lieen lapjicil to any ex
tent to meet the needs of this recent but fist
increasing settlement, the scarcity of water in
Ihe pic nlmut town had become, iqion oc
casions, almost alarming. Little gardens of
valuable plants In tow n hail, in many instance,,
liccomc almost waste, while in one notable in
stance the supply was so small as to render in
effectual all attempts of the fire companies to
get water to burning building,, which, in nit
probability, would have U-cn saved with n
comparatively small los, had the condition of
the ssater supply Wen otherwise. Hut, not
withstanding its knowledge of such fads and
their dangerous imiort, Ihe Government still
continues to grant new privileges, whenever
and wherever asked fur, at the same lime it is
utterly lethargic of nil endeavor to increase the
supply in correspondence with Ihe augmented
and still increasing drain.
Under the present reign, revenue seems to lie
the only object worthy of consideration, be
sides the origination of tawdry and unworthy
objects upon sshlch that revenue iniybc'spcnt;
and this seems to lie the liasis uKin which the
workings of the water wotks, in common with
those of other departments, are carried out.
Were this not the case in the instance referred
to, it is difficult to conceive how the Govern
ment could attempt to justify its actiun. It
seems to us simply a fraud practiced by govern
ment upon those with whom it ha, already con
tracted to supply, knowing, as it does, that
that supply during certain seasons is often
dangerously scant ; and the sooner the public
look the matter resolutely in the face the bet
ter. This is but one of many modes by which
the Hawaiian Government, of late, has sought
indirectly lo increase the taxation of the peo
ple, and it may well lw characterized as the
most unjust of all. The town, in its center, as
well as in thesuburbs,-is lieing rapidly built up,
mostly of wooilen structures, and the danger
from large and destructive conflagrations is
thus lieing every day proportionally increased,
while the water supply is lieing daily dimin
ished by the addition of new taps ; and is it
not to be supposed that insurance companies
will fail to recognize the fact and make it ap
ply in fixing their rates of insurance ?
Means have liefore been suggested by which
Ihe supply of water could lie greatly increased
and made adequate for every present need;
but ihe present administration seems to have
been too busy with coronation affairs, and such
like display, to attend to the actual needs
until the discontent of a district famished for
want of water shall assume the proportions of
an emergency compelling them to act. It has
been suggested that a number of artesian welts
be sunk in town, by Ihe Government, to sup
plement the supply from the reservoirs; that
these lie connected together and with the
piies from the reservoirs, and that by steam
pumping, cither through additional reservoirs
or directly applied to Ihe connecting pqies, a
uniform pressure lie induced, equal to that
from the main reservoirs. The difficulties in
Ihe way of such a sjstcin could lie readily
overcome, and it is estimated llut Ihe cost
would not lie excessive. Something of this
kind must, sooner or later, be done to meet our
growing needs, and the cost, whatever it be,
should lie a question of secondary consider
ation only. We deem this question of an
adequate water supply for the town one of im
mediate and iiaramount importance, and any
delay of it, proper consideration fraught with
danger to the community.
Revetting again lo ihe settlement under
I'unchbowl, we would slate that the land
sjuken of is Crown land, Ihe proceeds from
the rentals of which go to the King's private
purse. The land has been measured out in
numerous small lots anil rented for short
periods, mostly to I'oitugucse, upon an under
standing that a supply of water could be got
from the piies. Possibly this facj is sufficient
to account for the readiness with which the
Government has granted new privileges, not
withstanding the knowledge that privileges so
granted would add to Ihe deprivation already
seriously felt by the town.
MORTUARY STATISTICS AND
WHAT THEY SHOW,
A careful study of our Honolulu mortuary
reorts, imjierfect as ihey are, will well rciay
the labor spent Take, for Instance, those
for 1SS1. Total deaths, SlS j 633 natives, 92
Chinese, 9i other foreigners; 263 were under
five years of age; 160 had no meilical attend
ance. These arc the figures given by the
Agent of the Hoard of Health. Hut there is a
great discrcruncy belwecn these figures and
lhce published under the direction of the
Hoard of lMucation. The whole number of
deaths reported by the nhool teachers, who
give in every case the name and residence, was
1,260, a difference Vf 442, or over fifty r
Cent. The number of deaths from tuull-iox
reported by Ihe Hoard of Health was 270,
ami thit cannot vary far from the exact truth.
Deducting thin number fiorn the figures pre
viously given, J48 would lie Ihe number nf
deaths from other causes according tu the
Hoard of Health, 990 according lo the Hoard
of lMucation, an elects of eight) ir cent.
Who can explain this strange discrepancy, the
IkMid of Health returning only lifly-live tier
Cent (4 Ihe deaths leitcd by Ihe Hoard of
Of the 5S deaths frpm other causes llun
srualux, 106, or 19) icr ccut are rciuitcd,
"cause unknown," If the same riercrnlage be
applied to Ihe number of deaths iewrtctl by
the lloaid of lMucation, we shouU have 191
deaths In this community In one year, and
from "cause unknown," It It crtditablc to
our authorities that one-fifth of the people who
die ami are burled, have passed out of life In
ways which the guiiJiaru of the (Hiblie health

One fact they show, however, which ought
to be impressed upon the hearts and minds of
our community, and thai is the high death rate
that prevails in Honolulu. From 20 lo 25 in
every 1,000 of population is the usual average
in large cities. In New York, in 1SS0, il was
26.47 l"-'1 thousand, and of the total number of.
deaths 45.37 were children under fivcjcarsof
age. Of the SiS deaths reported in Honolulu,
only 263, or 32.15 per cent, were under five
year, of age. While the deaths of )oung
children were one-third less In proportion thau
in New York city, taking the returns of our
Hoard of Health, SlS, and estimating our
imputation at 16,000, our death rate was 34.25
per thousand; or, taking the figures of the
Hoard of lMucation, minus the deaths from
small-pox, 990, wc have a death rate of 61.97
per thousand, two and one-third times as great
as in New York city. Yit 1 14 per cent of the
total number of deaths in that city were from
measles, scarlet fever, diphtheria, croup, and
whooping-cough, diseases not known to any
extent here. During iSSo, as rciorted by the
Hoard of lMucation, the deaths in Honolulu
were 1,162, representing an annual death rate
of 72.62 per thousand, two and three-fourths
as many times projiorlionally as in New York
city for the same year. The death rate in San
I-'ranckco was reported as 18.27 KZ thousand.
I'ry the whole State of Massachusetts the death
rate was iS.S; for the city of Hoston, 23.7.
The birth rate for Massachusetts was 24.S
perlhousand ; in Honolulu, S7.3. How is this
high birth rate to be accounted for? Unfortu
nately, the reiwrts of the Hoard of Education
do not give the sex or nationality in their sta
tistics of births. Of 6,082 females in this city,
5,208 w ere natives and half-castes, S5.6 per cent
of the whole number. Are wc to look to the
small fraction of foreign females, 14.4 per cent
of the w hole number, for an explanation of this
large birth rate?
These statistics has c been spread liefore the
public for many months. What member of
the Hoard of Health has taken the pains to
study them, and set on foot searching investi
gations as to the cause to lie assigned for an
annual death rate so excessively dispropor
tionate to the usual estimate of the health of
this community, and to the known average
death rate of the large cities of Ihe world?
Who is caring properly for the health of Ihe
community when no one knows how one in
every five of the people who die among us
came to their death? Whose are the children,
growing up to mould this nation's destiny and
cliaracter, three times Ihe usual average coming
into life here every year, and in what schools

When we shall have had published the mor
tuary statistics for 1SS2, what will they show?
I las there lieen, during the past year, any more
exact and scientific statistical work, any more
careful scrutiny of the causes of disease and
death, any more philanthropic and systematic
provision for the protection of the people
against preventible disease? Will our many

the time or ability to devise a scientific class!

Ihe causes and the remedy for the present ex

HONOR WHERE IT IS DUE.
The '. C. Advertiser w ould have us remem
bcr that the mark, of industrial and commer
cial progress now so apparent on these Islands,
is not so much a result of the pluck and enter
prise of the foreign portion of our community,
and the consequent "investment of foreign cap
ital in Hawaiian agriculture and commerce,'!
as it is of "the fertility of the soil" and the
greatness and goodness of the government, by
which such enterprise has been so carefully
fostered. We are told that "neither the tr-
any of ruler nor popular lawlessness exist here
to interfere with the pcacefull pursuit of indus
try'" and that "the richness of the soil and the
perfect freedom and security in which its fruits
can be reaped, arc the true foundations of the
country's wealth." It is remarkable how these
"true foundations," so independent of all other
considerations, have so utterly failed in stimu
lating industrial enterprise in any direction ex
cepting where foreigners and foreign capital
are concerned, and how utterly unprogressive,
the purely native clement of society has become.
Wc should interpret the situation more in this
way that, in spite of numerous and licsctting
obstacles, and a badly conducted government,
foreign pluck, enterprise, and capital, have
managed to raise these Islands from nothing to
a state of great prosperity, and llut this same
pluck, enterprise and -capital have lieen the
sole means by which a weak government has
lieen kept in bounds not altogether inconsistcnf
with their own continued existence and pro
gress. We lielieve also thai the grip ot
foreign enterprise is too firm now to be ev cr
shaken off, and that it will be able to conqiel
good government in the future, if necessary.

TARIFF COMMISSION REPORT.
The following is taken from Ihe rcmit of the
lanlT Commission and it copied from Willi t
and Hamlin's Circular, New Vote, dated Dec,
The Importance of (he sugir schedule I, shown
by the very large itlutii of revenue obtained
from Ihe duly on sugar, exceeding in amount Ihe
revenue collected from any other article on Ihe
dutiable list, and yielding a national Income of
forty-five to fifty million dollar,.
The schedule has received the earnest con
sideration of the Commission, and Ins elicited
much valuable testimony from llie refiners,
linKirtcrs and dealers, as well n, the producer.
and consumers of sugar : in fact, from all those
classes usually supposed In be specially Inter
estetl in legislation nfTcclinglhe product.
The Commission Ins considered the sugar
schedule from different standmint,. Firstly,
with n view to simplification. Secondly, with
nsicw to the reduction of the rate of duties,
Thirdly, with the view of recommending to
Congress a system of asscsing the duties am
determining Ihccommcrcialvalucof thciliflcrent
grades of sugar which can be less easily evaded
in its .application than Ihe present svslcm, par
ticulaily when applied to tlic lower grades of
All the witnesses who appeared before ll
Commission, with singular unanimity, testified
lo the fact that in all wholesale commercial
transactions (meaning the buying or selling of
ravv or low grade sugar) the xilariscoie Is
used by both buyer and seller to ascertain the
saccharine richness and true value of Ihe sugar ;
hat the custom prevails among nil Ihe ni lions
of Europe a, well as in the United States; and
w hen asked if Ihey knew of any reason why the
jxilariscopc, so satisfactory in commercial trans
actions as to lie uniformly relied on by lioth
buyer and seller, could not also be equally re
lied on by the government to determine the
saccharine richness ana true value ol sugar
with the view of affording a basis on which to
assess customs duties in proportion to tha
value, without nn exception, these witnesses
well versed in the methods of buying, selling,
refining and producing sugars testified unhesi
tatingly that they knew of no rcavm why the
polariscopc test should not lie used by the gov
ernment a, a basis for applying customs duties.
It was also proven by some of those wit
nesses who had informed themselves on the
subject, that in France the polariscopc had
superceded the use of the Dutch standard in
determining the classification of sugars in order
to determine the rates of duties, and that in
Germany, and even in Holland, where the use
of the Dutch standard originated, custom-house
officers are instructed that when they have
reason to believe sugars have been artificially
colored, or their color degraded, to assess the
duties according to their saccharine richness or
true value, to be determined by the polar!
scopic test, regardless of their color.
One of the witnesses testified that it was
proven beyond a doubt or cavil, that it is a
common practice to degrade the natural color
of German licet root sugars by artifical means,
when Intended for the Dutch -or American
markets, the business of coloring sugar lieing
regularly carried on as a distinct pursuit at a
fixed price per one hundred pounds.
It is an acknowledged fact that Ihis degrad
ing the color of cane sugars in Ihe West
India Islands is being constantly done tu suit
the American tariff laws, and the practice is
justified on the ground that it is merely taking
advantage of the language of the laws.
Referring to the language of only two of the
witnesses, one, the chemist in charge of Ihe
United States Lalioratory at New York city,
and whose duties have lieen mostly the testing
of sugars, says that :
The jiolaiiscopc is one of ihe most exact in
struments known to chemical science; the
sugar registers itself.
The other, a very large imjiorter, also of New
York city, says that ;
The polariscojic is the most perfect means
of ascertaining the commercial value of sugars
et found. We cannot put any limit to inven
tion, and something K-ttcr may be found here
after. The ilariscopic lest, in ihe first place,
enables us lo assess a specific duty. In the
second place, it is ad valorem, because it is
fixed upon the value of sugar by iolariscopic
strength, which is its value for sweetening, and
that value Is determined by the polariscopc.
The Commission therefore recommend to
Congress Ihe use of the jmlariscoplc test as a
basis for assessing customs duties on all sugars
