wis liegnii on the Herald, numlx-rles
-uhirthcrs objected. They had Itccn
urfd to the old style -black letter,
K-,ter sort of advertising and they
(ould not understand the new system.
" It dojnol Rive lis a prn)cr display,'"
they urgt'tl lint the buuincw mannnc,rs
df the Herald soon convinced them
thai the new style was not only the
fairest, but was the most advantageous.
Now, no Honolulu advertiser ran fail
to ai know ledge the value of the papers
named as ndu-itising mediums. The
.due of the New York Herald and Sun
1 based upon their lar;e circulations ;
the value of the Post llioii its high
standard as an out-spoken, manly, hih
principled, clear thinking, and reason
ably consistent public journal. In its
own restricted field, and for the needs
of its patrons, the 1'res.s is quite as good
.111 advertising medium as the New
ork Pom. It circulates ntiioni; the
most intelligent cople in the kingdom.
It has more city patrons than any other
paper, and is second only to the Gazette
in its list of island subscribers. Hut it
is read by a great many who do not
subscribe for it, both here and on the
other islands. Its new departure gives
it additional reading matter, and ought
to give it additional subscribers on the
other isl inds. Its increasing subscription-list
is an earnest of its advance
ment in jopular favor, and, conse
quently, of its increasing uselulness as
an advertising medium. To the many
steadf.ist patrons of the Press, 'who
have supported it on principle, because
they indorsed its utterances and be
lieved in its course of action, the Press
owes a debt of thanks. Hut many per
sons who bav.c liked the Press all along
have been so wedded to their own way
of lookfng at advertising that they
would not advertise in its columns
unless they were allowed to have their
own way, with large type, and in half
or quarter, double or tripple column
form. The weekly supplement, which
the Press will hereafter run, enables its
conductors to make certain concessions
to the wishes of natrons, whether they
be deemed judicious or not. After
this issue, any ecess of local news will
be printed in the supplement in the
Mine clear-faced, leaded type which
appears on the third page of the body
of the paper. And, whether local or
selected, the reading matter will be
always of a sort to interest general
readers, and so secure to advertisers a
position of value in the iapcr ; and as
the supplement will be of equal page
size with the iaper, the inconvenience
of the old-style supplement, liable to
loss, generally cast inqiatiently aside,
will Iw forever done away. Into the
columns of the supplement, then,
double-column advertisements, of any
length, will be allowed, set in large
ijrpa to suit the taste of advertisers, for
which one-eighth alwivc ruling rates
will l)c charged. The Press lielievcs
that its present style of classified and
uniform advertisements is the very best
method now in vogue, and thinks it has
the majority of its atrons in full agree
ment; but, in deference to the wishes
of many friends, it will re-continue the
old system until all its advertisers shall
become converted to the superior ad
vantages of the system of the New York
Herald, Sun, and Times.

H) the last mail from Kngtand letters
were received, giving inf irination that
Portuguese immigration into these
ishnds had been nguin stwpendctl by
this (iovcrnment. On innttiring of
the agent of Mawrs. Holinung the
lollowing confirmation was obtained :
fly the last mail from San Frtvncisco
Messrs. (',. W. Macfarlnne .t Co. the
senior member of which house was
recent special commissioner for Portu
guese immigration, and has recently
been rccognifcd by planters and the
public ashaving this important work
well in hand received a letter from
the Messrs. Hoffnung of London, in
quiring why their llonolulaii agents
thc Macfarlanes had not forwarded
some explanation of a letter received
by them from the Hawaiian minister
of foreign affairs, ji'hc terms of
that precious letter written, be it
understood, without a word of
consultation with the Messrs. Mac-
farlane were, in effect, a peremtory
demand that Messrs. I loffmmg should
accept seventy-five per cent, of all
payments made them on account
of Portuguese immigration, in govern
ment bonds. The Planter's Monthly
for September the month-piece of the
planter class and the exponent of its
interests declares in favor of Portu
guese immigration as the best obtain
able. One may fancy the indignation
tempered liy disgust with winch the
average planter will read this statement
of the issue between their immigration
agent and the government. It may be
substantiated by documentary evidence,
if required. If the C.ibson programme
be carried to its logical sequence, Por
tuguese immigration must cease. And
why? That this incongruous upstart,
this unscotched viper in the bosom of
the commonwealth, may have more
money to waste in the vulgar display of
kitchen statesmanship and back-door
diplomacy. Let those planters, who
have paid their advances on all the male
labor arrived, inquire into what fund
that money has been covered. Let the
people demand of their servants an ac
count of the bonds already sold. Let
them try and find out why a portion of
the receipts for the bonds which are to
be bought with coin will not be suffi
cient to carry on the immigration work
for which a portion of those bonds were
created. I ."el them knock at the door
of the finance office, until some one
with courage enough and brains enough
will give them truthful answer. And
then, if they have not the resolution to
ring, by law or by force, the-official
neck of the man who is at least nomin
ally responsible, let them go to their
homes and realize that they are slaves.

Inert respectability is often quite as
bad as downright knavery. Kach is a
prime factor of misgovernment and it
is often an open question which is the
more dangerous. If one's eyes have
been opened to the rascalitv of a public
servant, by thorough ventilation of a
past record, and the proof positive that
the official is walking in his own foot
steps, one knows then what to 'expect.
mn wncn one is wounded in the house
of one's friend, when reputable con
servatism gives its cloak to disreputable
adventure, the blow is worse than the
thrust of Macbcth's dagger, for it mur
ders at one fell swoop our trust in
friendship and our confidence in man
kind. It is quite natural at such times
to exclaim: "If r-Jias 'fallen down,'
if it's virtue could not stand the test,
who would not 'fall down,' and who
could stand the test?" I.ast weuk we
loiiucd out what we believed to be
certain specific violations of law on the
part of the auditor-general. A neck
lias passed and the official criticised
has made no sign. The official organ
has made no cfrort to explain away his
delinquencies, liy the admission of
silence, Mr. J. S. Walker stands clearly
indicted before the people. Unless he
makes a prompt, full and unequivocal
defense, that indictment will- be in
eflect n conviction; and the verdict
will Iw rendered by an act of the com
ing legislature. Let Mr. Walker re
member that. And let him not forget
that most of the native votes which
passed the auditing act were given
because the men who gave them believed
the creation of the office would do
away with even the jvossibility of such
jobbery as has been carried on in the
"opposition shop" of Cibson & Co.
For "Cibson & Co." read "Cibson
& Walker." It will not please Mr.
Walked friends. Yet, if they will
read between the lines of recent official
history, men who think will see the ap
propriateness of the firm name, Gib
son and Walker, the voice and the
hand; Cibson and Walker, the catspavv
and the monkey; Cibson and Walker,
the king's jester and the real prime
minister. And yet, all these days, Mr.
J. S. Walker has been known a a slow,
safe, honest, conservative, mfttt.ibb
citizen. It was his respectability that
captured the crowd. And to what end?
This cleanly, smooth sjjoken, respect
able man, who has been merchant and
cabinet officer, and always and every
where "eminently respectable," aspires
at last to lw the ower behind the
throne; and joins hands with Walter
Murray Gittson -the branded scalawag
of half an hemisphere of infamy. Is
this true or false? If false, the auditor
general owes it to his office, iq hu
family, and to the friends who Itave
believed in him to show that it is falic.
We believe it to Jjc trud We Iwlieve
the community so believes it- We l
lieve that the issue of events will justify
us in saying it.

Let the present premier of Ilawfiu nei

ming on his war-worn charger towards
the dim distance of our nearest south
Pacific neighbor, bearing to that far
off sister the boon of his knightly valor.
Let him be followed at a respectable
distance by the Sanrho'of the young
Hawaiian party, riding that ovcrbur
ricneri animal, the native vote. And,
on the western hnrirou, picture the
oppressed tribes of " free America"

There is a serious as well as a jocose
side to tins " primacy" business. If it
does not end in our wholesome chas
tisement by some foreign power, or
even in the severance of friendly re
lations, it is very likely lo make this
government a great deal of trouble. It
is no small mailer to be made the
laughing-stock of the vvorid. France,
hngland and tne United States looked
on trood-naturedlv. while we inflated
our little body anil tried to imitate the
strut of royalty. Kvcn republican Cali-
lornia did little worse than smile at the
pageant-pantominc of the coronation.
Mr. Curtis Iaukea has been well re
ceived in Kuropc as the representative
of the Hawaiian government and bearer
of autograph letters and decorations.
His reception could not well have been
more (or less) polite. Hearing the com
mission of a gentlemen, he was received
by gentlemen as a gentleman. That was
ail there was of it. No significance
attached to the embassy or to his re
ception, hngland would just as soon
put her great foot down and stamp us
out of existence, if necessary, as if our
envoy to the court of St. Petersburg
had forgotten to call at St. James. So
would France. So would the United
States. If our little points of lately
cooled lava stand in the path of pro
gress, wc arc bound to be brushed
aside. Let us not permit it to escae
There is also another serious con
sideration in connection with Mr. Gib
son's expensive child's play. It may
preclude the possibility ol obtaining
further labor from the South seas. No
one knows better than Mr. Gibson the
necessity of quieting, of preventing,
apprehension of foul play on the part
of more or less ignorant savages. Once
let the islanders of the Pacific under
stand that they are to be called upon
to acknow ledge the sovereignty of a
race that has not (oiuiitml them, and
they will laugh in the faces of our
envoys and give our labor-recruiting
vessels "a wide berth" or "a warm
reception" as the opportunity may best
The local public, although probably
uninterested in mere newspaper con
troversy, cannot help being interested
in controversy to which a lady is a
party. Mr. Hugh Hastie has informed
the Gazette that the letter signed by
Mrs. Hastie, which appeared in last
Saturday's Press, was refused insertion
in the Advertiser. I he latter paper
denies the statement. The letter was
certainly addressed to that paper when
it reached tins office, .Mr. Hastie in

editor of the Gazette. We believe Mr.

A friend of these islands, and a friend
of the writer, has written these pointed
words : " I tell you this agitation about
leprosy must cease. If it docs not, wc
shall lytve an embargo on Hawaiian
trade and a quarantine on Hawaiian
travel. You know as well as anybody
can what 'that will mean." The writer
does know what that will mean, and he
here states on just what terms the lep
rosy agitation can be brought to a close:
Segregation must lie enforced and the
charge of lepers at Kalawao must be
given to a reputable and qualified phy
sician and one who will not wink at

To be knave of all work for a brigand
