"In the Wit of last Saturday, we had a
short editorial notice of the lemarks concern
ing the Hawaiian Islands in President Arthur's
message to Congress. This is a matter of
vital importance to us, and merits further men
tion. It u a note of warning that admonishes
us to be on our guard. The Great Republic
is our nearest neighbor and has cv er been our
fumest friend, and now comes a hint that it
"views with concern" the intlux into these
Islands of Immigrants who may endanger the
indeiendencc of the native race. We hive
already unwisely induced too many Chinese to
settle amongst u, and should any political
change which is within the range ofpossi
bilit) extend to them the elective franchise,
who can foretell what will lie the result? It is
to the interest of the United States and to our.
selves that the independence of these Islands
should lie maintained, and the natives have
lights which all are bound to respect. To
prcscjve our inde-iendcncc, it is necessary to
preserve as long as -toisiblc the native race.
When they comprise only a minority of the
population, there will not lie the same induce
ment that there is now to maintain the auton
omy of the Islands. As long as we conduct
pur affairs as we have in the ist, there is not
the remotest shadow ofanvlhim- tu fear en
dangenng our Independence. In vvcaknos Is
strength, if that vveakno be teuqieiiM with
good judgment, llullf it is not, ft vv ill lead to
dissolution. hen it is made apparent tlut
we can not govern our own mixed population
ana can not protect foreign Interests here,
then only, need we begin to prciwirc for the
end. it requires no prophet to tell what will
be the fate of this government when that time
arrives. It Is a foregone conclusion, amino
one can deny it. The United States govern
ment realiies this fact, and will do nothing to
speed the ilav. It is comiaiy to their policy
to extend their tcnltoiy by conquest, and we
have nothing to fear on that scoie. It will he
the incompetency of Ihe government tint will
bring about the end which nut a few in our
community desiie to sec."
The Urue and sudden intlux of Chinese
which these Islands are threatened within i
next five weeks, over a thousand of which have
already aitivcd. very rutuiallv crrairs .lam.
and recalls the above ripresscv views of this
journal in its issue of December ji, 1SS1, The
cov eminent can neihani now mine itu. ,ln.
gcr it is In from a Chinese invasion, through
its neglect to guuu itself, in the regulation
this class orimmigration by lavs. In the
two sessions of the Ln-ivLiiiirt lull
UieJ havisi! thUobicCt folic-, and seeking
to protect us touiew hat by necessitating a fair
proiKxtion of women to form ivut of each lot
oriDituignnls, both of thes bills, however,
f.-ilcd ( lci. mc law for uant of the ru)l mg
nilure, Tlie mlilcnne of tliii mancuct
pl.icei a letinii, riucslion leforc llil j;oern
ment nnd one tint ll, for l councils urn!
nl)le statcsninnlilp. Through the uanl of this
in Ihe jean alioe alluded to, ue find our.
selves no threatened with an fmasion that
the Unitcil State Ime already Intlmatcil they
'View with concern." If O.ooo Chinese can
lie riuhed In here within the next to months,
we sec nothing to hinder 10,000 lieini; forceil
on us before the end of the )ear. The "con.
cctn" of the United States becomes more than
doubly our concern, for It may cost us not only
the treaty, but our cry existence as a Hawaii
nation. The planting Interests mi;ht use to
adantagc a portion of these coolies, but the
rUks we run In jeopardizing the treaty Is too
dear a price to pay to have labor cheapened by
this class; ami the risks that we all run of
lieing crowded entirely to the wall Is not to be
lost sight of, while the still greater disparity
of the sexes, already alarming, is a cause of
deep solicitude. When we take into consider
ation that we had a opulation of but 58,000
at the list census but 44,000 of which were
llauailans of all age, male and fcmilc -we
sec that the Chinese already here, with those
en route, promise soon to equal the mile xpu.
lation of the native race. They will exceed, at
the same time, all other foreigners by alnnit
14,000. It docs not require much profundity
of thought to sec the inevitable at a not very
distant day, all of which could have been
averted by a ruler who professed such love for
his people as the " hoiulu lahiii " watch-word
of the present reign would have us believe
so dear to him. Vc look around for proof
thereof, but find Instead that all the tendencies
indicate the reverse of this watch-word, and
fiil to find in the Kalakaua policy n gleam of
hope for the Hawaiian rice.
The Young Men's Christian Association
building is an edifice of which the town has
reason to lie proud. Whether its manage-
ment shall be alike matter for pleasure, profit
and pride, is something for the future to deter
mine. As planned, one of its features Is to be
library and reading room. I!ut there is
already a library and reading room in Hono
lulu. Is there a sufficiently large reading pub
lic here, profitably to employ lioth ? We think
there is not. The plans and objects of the
two societies nic so nearly identical. Each
aims to provide a cheerful, profitable place
where )imng and old may spend a portion of
their leisure. I.ach is earning out its scheme
of usefulness in a similar spirit and in about
the same wav. It seems impolitic that cither
the efforts of the nnnagcrs of the two institu
tions or the interest of the public to be bene
fitted by them should be divided as they now
are : or, as they arc likely to be in the near
future. T he most active workers in the Y, M.
C, A. have generally been In fullsjmpathy
with the library organization. It is to be pre
sumed that Ihe present directors of the library
arc not less in sjmpathy with the Y. M. C. A.
hat, then, can be objected to such a union of
the two institutions as shall result in the trans
fer of the liooks, periodicals and other material
of the existing library to the new, commodious
and comfortable quarters in the new building ?
To this will be objected by some for the
chronic objector is ubiquitous that .any con
nection with the . M. C. A. is hkclv to make
the conduct of the library too straight-laced,
to narrow the range of its usefulness and to
harbor sectarian and illiberal literature while
excluding advanced thought and more popular
reading. The best reply to this is the condi
tion of the public library in the past. Its
liooks and periodicals have been in no case
such as might not be admitted to the library of
any good family questions of literary taste
and individual preference aside. Then, too,
it distinctly ought to be understood that the
church going part of this community is the
portion that reads most and can best converse
about what it reads. Thd periodicals most in
vogue here, as in the United States, have been
founded and largely conducted by religious, or
Miicuy moral, men. me Lttitun; so
long Scrihuti'i Monthly, is a notable example.
The Harpers wcrealwajs a religious family.
The principal editors of the Atlantic, previous
to Mr. Aldrich. promotion to its charge, were
activ el) religious or in full sympathy with re
ligious methods of social work. Many, nay
most of the iopular authors of Anciica, arc re
ligious. And modern Christians arc the v en-
last eoile to exclude such irreligious writings
as are honestly and temperately written and
arc in no way immoral. It isjour out-and-out
anti-churchman who is most rigidly and con
sistcntly intolerant. Fortunately, among the
most active and intelligent supporters of the
library arc to be found the activ e and intelligent
uii.cr in inc x. .vi, v,. i. so tnat wc
reasonabl j may hope that frequent consultation
and careiu examination will make it clear to

two institutions in one, or at least gathering
them under one roof.

There is much apparent and some genuine
truth in the extract quoted. There arc many
prominent partisans in Hnglish politics, Con
servatives, Liberal, Radical and Land League,
whose opposite convictions arc never so irre
concilable that the gentlemen who hold those
convictions cannot meet around the social
Kurd as private citizens, neighbors and friends.
Republican and Democrat, Protectionist and
Tree Trader, Gold Standard Ilond, Holder
and Greenback Inflationist, are often cjose
ftiends in the social life surrounding Congress at
Washington, or the legislatures of the several
States. Hut the representative men in Eng.
liJi politics, the leaders of opinion in the Sen
ate and Houe of Representatives are, in the;
vast majority of cases, men of personal intcgri
ty, of cleanly lives, of scholarly training in
short, gentlemen. The last consideration is so
important that no mere adventurer, no matter
what his ability, ever holds for long, any place
of trust in English or American affairs. If he
succeed In foUling himself upon ignorant or
careless electors, his true diaracter is soon
found out, his antecedents are published, his
social status prescribed and social lines cleaily
defined. He rarely gets on in society, is
snubbed if he attempts so to do, and is shun
ned alike by men of character, by women of
sense and b'y that portion of the rising genera
tion licst gifted with discretion. In a great
measure this is true In Honolulu society.
There are few among the respectable Cunllici
of this community where the Premier's official
position is a passport to soda! recognition.
Iking now an adventurer in power, as he was
formerly an adventurer seeking powr, has not
given him the right to be admitted as a social
equal by upright and high-minded men. If
Mr. Gibson might give all his ill gotten gains
for the right to social equality which his own
acts have forfeited, he would pay a small price
for a great iiosMssion.

The immoral decalogue of Satan can not be
kept, invariably. There arc times when
mighty slns'of omission must be scored against
the arch enemy of men. It is then that good
angels sing and bad ones weep. This line of
thought Is suggested by examination of some
recent performances of that minor instrument
of the powers oT evil who masquerades In this
community as President of the Board bf
Health. Mr. Gibson and Mr. Gibson's
in) rmidons have been laudably activ c of late in
tracing nnd arresting lepers. The characteris
tically boastful claim that his administration
has discovered, apprehended and segregated
more lepers than any previous administration,
in n like amount of time, is not altogether false.
It is, however, misleading in neglecting to ex
plain (he reason for the large showing made.
Those reasons arc chiefly as follows: When
the present board took the reins, its president
evolved from his eastern imagination a scheme
of treatment, liclieved to be palliative and an
nounccd to be curative. In response to this
announcement, made in the name of th
Hoard of Health on the authority of its chief
medical agent, lepers came into Honolulu
from various tlistricts in the kingdom. They
came and were quartered nmongtiieinhabitants.
They received treatment at the public dispen
sntoryof Ihe Hoardof Health j and, ingoingtoand
fro, mingled with the populace almost as freely
as if restriction never had been contemplated.
All this Is icccnt history, well-known to every
observing and reflecting person in the commun
ity. Ileforc the advent of the present board,
with its widely-circulated scheme of ameliora
tion, lepers had hid themselves In mountain
lairs, and in the recesses of well-nigh impene
trable forests. Hut, undea-thenew- regime, they
come forth, in many instances, "to be cured."
In recalling these facts, the writer makes no
reflection upon cither the zeal or the motive of
Doctor Fitch. Whether that gentleman be thj
pioneer of a great discovery, a deluded vision'
ary, or something vastly worse, it is not the
purpose or the province of this article to in
quire. The Prist has already indicated its be
lief in the possibility of cure ; although its stafi
are convinced that cure is possible only when
treatment is persistent, continuous and made
under the best jxissible conditions. Hut the
safety of society in general demands that rigid
segregation shall be one of those conditions.
Public dispensary treatment of notorious lepers
is a condition of cure which perils the entire
community in which it is carried on. That
this belief was shared by the people of 1 Iono
lulu, almost as a unit, was what made the ad
verse criticism of the " opposition press " so
potent for reform. The community belies ed
that the President of the Hoard of Health was
making political capital by encouraging the
natives to trust in a new-fangled scheme of
cure ; by relaxing the search for pronounced
lepers ; and by encouraging the tacit under
standing that they should not be sent to Molo
kai. The community, recognizing itsdangei,
was not slow to express its indignation. The
"opposition press," though somewhat in ad
vance of the popular outcry, was so well sec
onded by the intelligent and the unselfish that
its words carried conviction to all even to the
administration. To sav e itself from undoubted
ruin, Ihe Hoard of Health began to collect
lepers. The recent shipments to Molokai have
liecn late fruits of the administration's tardy
recognition of the people's rights. When no
leper remains within the vicinage of theme
troioliswc shall all breathe more freely. In
the meanwhile let the good that has been
wrung from an unwilling public service be
No wise man disputes the necessity of ex
clusion ; but there is another side to leprosy a
humanitarian sidc a sentimental side, if you
please. Last Saturday, fifty unfortunates were
sent to Kalawao. In) cars, they ranged from
early childhood to advanced age. They were
faring forth in melancholy files to lie in the
dread limbo of death by hours and inches.
Around the embaiking place, on the beach
just south of the marine railway, were gathered
about a hundred natives, relatives and friends
of the exiled. No lesser cn than Victor
Hugo's, no feebler pencil than the dead Dore's,
might draw that picture as it was. To the
rear, the careless, contented city j In front, the
unpitying sea ; o'er head, the fair clouds,
doubly fair by contrast j in the distance, the
aspiring peaks of Waianac, aflame with'.the
glow of sunset j and In the foreground of the
scene a band of wailing mourners, face to face
with a grief more keen than-death. It is idle
to urge that the native race is mercurial, inca
palile of continued sorrow. The grief o( those
parents and children, husbands and wives,
brothers and sisters, playmates and friends,
was as real as any grief ever is. It was not
merely pathetic it was the scry apotheosis of
woe. Then, if ever, was occasion for a telling
sermon. 1 hen, If ever, the consolations of
revealed religion would have been altogether
opportune. Hut the four white men present
were apolitical charlatan, a sceptic of relig
ions, a scene-hardened reporter, and a profes
sionally stolid officer of the law. If Christianity
means anything to those who have con vetted
the heathen in their midst, It ought to give it
self care that no more, such mournful partings
take place within the echo of Christian voices,
and yet be uncomforted by the Christian's
The rules laid down by the Board of Health
respecting the landing of the Chinese from the
steamers CUiutg and OciMi't require bonds of
$5,000 for each vessel's complement. While
this may seem a hardship to thus detain vessels
that aie en route to ports of destination, we
doubt not the agents as well as the general
community recogoiie the justice 01 guarding
tne port against any likelihood of a repetition
of the smallpox epidemic of two years ago,
caused by just such people, though not brought,
perhaps, in to well appointed vessels. "An
ounce of prevention is bcttei than a pound of
cure," and these Islands cannot afford to take
any risks of this nature after having pasted
through such a recent bittci experience of mot,
tality and expense.

There arc two wjjj of looking at the usual

fellow, bubbling with fun and frolic, and ill-ap-
predated by a selfish world that prefers its own

personal indignity and kindred pleasantries.
To the other class he is simply a fat-witted buf

his stock in trade, a vulgar lie or an obscene
"catch;" his appreciation of a joke confined
to his enjo)mcnt of some one else's discomfort;
his social v aluc indicated by the symbol of a

may be found in assuming that the average
practical joker is cither "not such a fool as he

as he is." "All Fools Day" Is the crand opnor

Honolulu has a number of stores creditable
to any place of Its sire. Every resident ought
to be interested In maintaining them. It is
true that prices here range higher than Is
agreeable to the general purse. Yet Ugh
salaries nnd large profits obtain here insScariy
all avenues of trade. "Live and let live" is
so admirable an aphorism tint one is chagrined
to sec an Intelligent nclghlwr or friend departing
from it. et in this community it frequently is
departed from, nnd sometimes by men them
selves In business. Hecausc of the small sav-
Ing on a small line of groceries, clothing or
other merchandise, many worthy residents of
Honolulu are in Ihe habit of sending orders to

Paul llo)nton used to call himself "a great
natatorial artist. " The Premier Is a greater
than he. When not wading chin deep In the
"pool of politics," nor riding on the "combing
wave of popularity," he is breasting the
"stream ol social gaiety." Having been duly
recognized as head of the "swim," by a select
and admiring audience of looking-glasses, the
Premiers views upon the "social tapis" arc
eminently In order.
Thus wrote Walter Murray in 1873 : "Our
condition is not so bad but what Industry,
economy and good management might remedy
many of the evils. It Is painful to sec a man
or a community having no hope of success in
life, but from some outside ltd). Such n one
leans upon a loan, a legacy, or other expecta
tion, and lacks strength In proportion to his
leaning upon a financial crutch." Yet there is
no servant of the existing government so zeal
ous in efforts to secure n large public loan as is
Walter Murray Gibson.
It will be well if the planters of these Island:
consider long before reducing the wages of
their laborers below living figures. No solid
prosperity can be built up in this kingdom on
merely servile labor. Every planter who fails
to pay all he can afford to pay for faithful and
intelligent help, fails to put a flawless brick in
the structure called prosperity. Wc want here
family lalior the toil of men who are rearing
children not ashamed and not too indolent to
work like their fathers. We want lalior here
which will spend a portion of its earnings
among our merchants. We want, above all,
Hawaiian labor. It is the best we have ever
had. Wc arc unlikely to have any better.
"Hawaii for the Ilawaiians" may 'best be
secured by cultivating such close relations be
tween emplo)cr and employed that the laborer
may be made to feel he has a stake in the
country where he was born; and the cmplo)cr
made to know that he is pa) ing men who give
full value for their wages.
GENERAL WOLSELRY OV AICOIIOL.
The Scientific American sa) s : Repl) ing to
a deputation of the Hlackburn Temperance
Mission at the residence of Major-General
Fielden, recently, he said that he had alwa)s
emplo)ed the opportunities afforded him to
impress the necessity of tempcrcncc on those
under his command. In the Red River expc'
dition, against the advice even of the medicat
men who accompanied the troops, he decided
that no spirituous liquors should be taken with
the force; and )ct no men ever did harder
work or behaved lwtler than those on that ex
pedition. In South Africa his personal body
cuard consisted almost exclusively of tcmoer
ance men; and there, too, the doctors, who had
predicted all manner of ills from the absence
of grog, had absolutely nothing to do. In
Egypt, again, the doctors told him that It was
very necessary the men should have grog, and
he was obliged, owing to the great pressure
put on him, to allow-it occasionally ; but it
was given in very small quantities and rarely,
and )et the troops in Egvpt were admirable in
their behavior. He had long held that drink
was tne great source ot crime, Uisobcdi
ence and other evils in the army. Apropos
of which the Gosfel Temperance Advocate re
marks: "As might have been expected, the
satirical papers I.ave been making merry over
the idea that Lord Wolseley should be prais
ing tcetotalism in the army, and at the same
time allow himself to be announced as the pa
tron of the 'Vine Club,' the object of which is
to enable its members to procure wine at lower
prices. It appears, also, that each member
of the club is pledged to purchase wine to a
definite amount every )ear, and the General's
critics fail to see the consistency of his posi
tion. The lesson ought not to be thrown away
upon icmiwrance workers.
BRANDY AS A MEDICINE.
Temperance friends, especially new converts,
are frequently puzzled by the question, "What
should sou do in the case of sudden illness or
accident? Would you not take brandy, then?"
To such a question as this, Dr. Alfred Carpen
ter has given an important answer, as follows:
"The use of brandy in such cases would lie
more beneficial In the breach than n the obscr.
vance. In nine cases out of ten in which it is
given it acts (if it acts at all) by deadening the
system to the danger of the position without in
any way diminishing that danger. The patient
may suffer less for the moment, but it is at the
expense 01 tne s) stem; lor the- brandy, by para
lyzing sensibility, too often withdraw s the atch
uil sentinels unon whose watchfulnesi3 th nnr,
tals of life arc kept open and energetic measures
cstauusncci lor tne restoration 01 health. The
mischief which is done by the injudicious and
routine use of alchohlc drinks in such cases Is
but too well known to the jih)sician who has
considered the physiological effect of alcohol.
I would recommend in the cases refercd to that
nothing should Ik: given but pure" water. It is
the liquid which is wanted, if anything is im
mediately wanted, and not the brandy. The
cases 10 wnicn oranciy is now given ny Ihe un
thinkinc public and the routine medical uric
tilioncr arc precisely those which fifty years ago
were supposed to rcqtiietHileeding, and were
bled whenever a doctor could be found to do
it. If a man bled such cases now, he would
be accused of luring killed the patient, sup
posing that the case was fatal. An extended
experience of many years has told uie in most
conclusive terms that those cases which are
plied with brandy in a supposed emergency
nave a more tedious recover)- than those in
which water alone has been given, and that it
has oitcn been the cause or death by potlpon
inc that faintness which, in cases of hemor
rhage, is the very-means which nature establishes
lor the arrest of the bleeding. I Tone person
should, perchance, suffer because brandy or
other stimulant has not been given by an un
skilled person, nineteen will be saved from
other mischief; whilst, if perchance a 'pick-me-up
is wanted, a leaspoonful of sal volatile
or a cup ol gocal tea would be far more effica
