CllURUt-GOINC IS HAWAII.
I hare ipokcn of the chapel of Ulupalakua
and that reminds me of the delight neatly all
natives take in church-coing. They go In for
it Iretnedously, not, hoecr, from am thing
approaching what long-established civiliralion
calls religious fervor. Th-tt element is totally
lacking in the native character, t speak, of
course, from my own olcratlon, which, al
though limited to a couple of months time, have
len varied and persistently pursued, I con
sider the constantly repeated assertion that
these people the common people, always
are Christians to lie observed,, and that makes
their great church-going prrdiliction all the
more curious. When one of the Kamchamehas
"broke the kapu, which is the way history
expresses the circumstance that pagan worship
was aoonsnco, ne also royally ordered all na
tives to become Christians, Most of the na
tives had at that time liecomc impressed with
the advantages of Christianity over the worship
oi niois ami mythological gotls, as hail rame
hamcha I, and that was in this way: When
Vancouver showed the first king of all Hawa
iian the ilcficrcnce lietwcen a musket ami a
spear for purposes of warfare, and the dif
fcrance between sharp steel carpenter's tools
ami sione axes, lor purposes ol canoe InnMing,
and told him of the diflcrcncc between a Kit
roiean cottage and n native grass hut, he im
pressed him that all the advantages resulted
from Christiamt). llcing anxious to comer!
the old heathen, he sold Christianitv. mind
)ou, not civilization and science, brought the
advantages ne Mimcu out. I'romptly, ami
upon that Idea, Christianity was proclaimed
and adopted, not with a change of heart, but
from a conviction that a Christian musket
would kill an enemy at n greater distance than
a native spear, and that a sharp steel adie
would hollow out a canoe quicker than a
stone ax, Consequently the Idols were broken,
the missionaries were welcomed, churches
were built, and the strong, hearty nation of
400,000 hapjiy people
vindled to At.om

licve are rooted In the hearts of this simple
pcopic, was niusiraicii ny an incident mat oc
curreil while we were In the volcano, which I
purposely refrained from mentioning in my
last letter, liecausc I can make belter use of ft
here. Our party was accomtianied Into the
volcano by a native servant of Col Macfarlanc.
When we stood on the brink ot the burning
lake, in the sjiccchlcss admiration of the
terrific phenomenon, that nallvc withdrew lo
one side and with a simple earnest ilcvoutncss
we could not but rescct, took from his belt a
niece of tobacco and a half-dollar silver piece,
both of which he threw into the tossing lava
an offering to I'tlc, goddess of volcanoes, the
worship of whom was still stronger in the heart
of that man than the Christian belief which his
ancestors had adopted by royal edict. Yet
that native will go to church on every possible
opiiorliinlly because he meets a crowd of other
natives there and he is intensely ivrrarinus.
because ii pleases his vanity to be thought of

One of the most remarkable superstitions
once universal nmoni? the natives and not vet
wholly extinct is the belief In the power of
tcnum native priests to pray any man or wo
man to death who may lc selected for that un
pleasant operation. It is a fact too perfectly
established lo admit of question, that is was
once not an uncommon occurrence for a man's
enemy to employ a priest (the cuff happened
lo lie washed on which I had written the native
name of the priest) to pray the man to death,
and that the victim, hearing of this, whould
certainly die on the day the priest had appoint.
cd for that consummation of the lnrrain. I
have talked with old while residents who have
endeavored to reason with natives suptioscd lo
be under the duth-spcll. No amount of
ridicule or argument could convince the natives
that they might just as well continue to live as
die for all the priest could do. The natives
alwavs were, and still arc, absolute fatalists,
and they demonstrated the extent of their in-
liorn belief thai certain men were given the

THE TEMPERANCE OUTLOOK.
Any one whose opinion is worth consulting
at all, would, If he could, place liquor beyond
the reach of those uiwn whom it works mis-
c, ' ,That 's to "' evcr' '"K'Me man is
theoretically in favor of prohibition, bnwrvrr
much he may question the practical utility of
liiuiuuiiury ias. 1 nai sum laws nave worked
well under certain exceptionally favorable con
ditions, is true, but it is equally true that in
most cases their efficient enforcement has
moved impracticable. The existence of any
law Is justified only by the possibility of its en
forcement, and where such enforcement is im
possible any law Incomes al once worse than
useless, for it provokes iiopular contempt. One
such law weakens all others, by suggesting that
they too may be broken with impunity. Mr.
Henry Hitchcock recently delivered an address
at St. Louis, before the State liar Association,
which brings together, In a compact form, the
legislation ol different states on this vital ques
tion. Iowa passed the most sweeping enact
ment in the shaeof a conslitutionaramend
ment, absolutely forbidding the manufacture or
sale of any Intoxicating liquor within her limits,
and trawlers on through lines of railroad have
had the satisfaclon, or otherwise, of seeing
posted in tuUcc cars, and at railway restau
rants, notices to the effect that liquors cannot
be had. One of the state courts, however,
pronounced the amendment unconstitutional
on technical grounds, and its decision is now
confirmed on appeal by the State Supreme
Coutt. In Mssissipni the sale of liquors has
been prohibited in lifty different towns. One
county permits the sale of malt liquors alone,
w hile another allow 1 liquors of any kind lo 1
sold In only one of its towns. Another act
curiously permits the sale of liquors within a
radius of seven miles of lun inrrlkl ,-), ,,-!,
whose denomination, by the way, il would be

territories and districts within the slate. In
oouin Carolina a similar set of provisions sub

while a general statute provides for a local op
tion vole in any city, town or village, a majori
trio decide on "licensc"or "nnlii-rnw- Vl,i

way, would seem to indicate an approach to

certainly a most desirable Innovation. Iln Ken
tucky special acts regulate the sale of liquors In
the different counties, as in the two stales just
named 1 and, in some instances, public senti
ment has changed, local prohibitory laws hav
ing been repealed presumably in accordance
with a change of opinion on the part of thepeo
pie. In Texas a localoptionlawhas bcenin force
for some time, and was slightly amended in
18S1. In Ohio the "1'ond Law," imposing a
heavy lax on dealers, was overruled, as uncons

prohibition of licenses. Another law prohibited
bunilay saIcs wherever liquor was old on

proved a dead letter. In Massachusetts the
