I lie re is ft lusbiciim of the sentimental
in the metaphor employed. 1 et tin
put it in plainer English. This nation
mint send good men to the legislature
or take the consequence of Imd gov
ernment. When we snv good men and
legislator, in the same hreath, we menu
men of strong moral fibre, of clea'r
brain, of unflinching courpgc, of un
swerving honesty. There are those
who will tell you there arc not many
such. If there be one in your diMrirt
wherever it lie unite what strength
you have on him. Hut good men must
stand jonn sound platform. The plat
forntroP investigation is the only one
tliaf&in satisfy the nation. Full, free,
non-partisan investigation is the only
solvation for jhis people. If officials
have been maligned, the intelligent in
vestigation of an honest legislature will
prove their righteousness. If offiri.ils
li.no been rriminal, like investigation
win urveii meir criminality. .11 cor
ruption has been aided and abetted, or
merely winked at, from those in highest
authoi iy, let tltat fact be known that
the n.r ion ami the world may put the
blame where it lrelongs. If the clamor
of .anih.in accusation has flown wide
of the mark, lit the lamb-like innocence
of those aspersed be seen in the white
light of public inquiry lcforc a tribunal
that in an honest election must express
the will of a free jfeople.
Those electors of the kingdom who
honestly believe this nation is being
misgovenfcd have nominated candi
dates for the legisJmurc. Among the
numlier so nomirmted are men who do
not represent what many erftnest men
most desire m legislators. Uut we
think they represent intelligence,
ability and integrity more- fairly than
their opponents. Many of the caudi
dues arc gentlemen known throughout
the islands to be earnest and honest
men. They are also intelligent men.
We think that any one of them
would emphatically own himself wrong
if the facts of an investigation rom--
felled the admission. We believe that
no one of them could be swerved from
the truth by considerations of persona
friendship or by bribes. We are con
fident that the best interests of the
nation will be their first consideration
if they are elected.
Rcort8 from the other islands are
most encouraging. I he Independent
Tatty, in a majority of the districts, is
not only strong, united and hopeful,
but coHfidtHt. The chances for the
election of an independent majority in
Honolulu are good. The fact that in
telligence and inMcrity have lcn so
little consulted by the manipulators of
tnc so-cniicii "Rational" ticket has
cmplwsUed thu integrity and intelli
gencc'of the Independent lenders. On
the result of the election depends a
great deal to both natives and for
eigners. We believe this fact has im
pressed itself upon the popular mind.
AVe believe the thoughtful vote will
have its weight in the approaching con
test. We believe the Independent
ticket will be very generally elected.
And this is not the idle buncombe of
ante-election " whooping-up " it is
deliberate conviction based upon the
judgment ol a great many careful, ob
serving and epericncl informants.

irii'.uls ol h prosy. It is a matter fir
common congratulation that our
wrtfjots hare heretofore tweti so com
arativcly exemH from the innirsions
of this disease. Undoubtedly the pub
lic have the teachers to thank very
largely fot their rareful supervision of
the physical welfare of the pupils in
our loHMBOn schools. Hut teachers
are nrj Wbie competent than other
hon-menicnl men to diagnose lcrosy,
espct inlly in its im ipient stages : anil
there are very influential reasons )er
tabling to his profession whv a teacher
should we excused from the duty of
putting suspected pupils on in-obntmn
or of otherwise seem inn to throw sus
picion on parties who may lie free of
teprmts mutt, said a government phy
sician to the tirtnripal of one of our
largest and most popular m hoots : "If
you have any 'mswt,' send them
along, and I'll examine them." Hut is
this the thing for a government medi
cal officer to shift this great responsi
bility ? And is it the thing for a school
teacher whose medical knowledge is
presumably slight to assume sk h re
sponsibly ? Happily thrrc arc in
stance where government physicians
have made careful examination of Ihc
pupils in some school, and done so
too at their own suggestion. Moreover
such examinations hae shown their
value in the evident relief to teachers.
pupils, ana parents allowed by such a
report as the following, dated Ottobcr
to, 1SH3 :- -" I have examined every loy
in anu rciwrt mat mere is no
boy in the sihool to dav who has a
syatpton of leprosy. A cleaner, health
ier set of boys it would be hard to find."
Now it is evident that the value of such
insertions depends on their hcing sys
tematic. The changes in our schools
every term arc such as to make almost
valueless for a given term the inspec
tion of a previous term. Our govern
ment physicians are not so busily em
ployed but that they could inspect all
the schools in their respective districts
once each term. If goiyl men cannot
be found for these positions, on account
of this added responsibility, a pound
wise olii:y would be to make an ade
quate increase of salary. Let those who
really wish the welfare of the people,
and who have at heart " the life of the
jieople," push for systematic medical
inspection of our schools. Such in
spection should be compulsory, quar
terly reports should be made by every
government physician to the board of
education, as the proper guardian of
thesdiodls, embodying a general re
port of the sanitary condition of each
school, and a detailed report of the
name, age, sex, and condition of each
diseased child attending any of the
schools of the district. The salary of
a government physician should be
made contingent on his presentation of
such reports. Any obstacle offered by
any parent or guardian to the inspec
tion of any child should be made a
criminal offense. Any school oflicer,
whether teacher or trustee, who fails to
carry out suggestions made by the
medical insicctor as to the sanitary
condition or regulations of the school
over which he has the control should
be held amenable. Government teach
ers should be compelled to resign, and
all family or boardinir or independent
schools should be refused government
aid if they fail to regard the require
ments of a medical inspection law.
Spasmodic attempts at inspection will
not answer. Rcry government phy
sician, teacher, and parent should be
made seriously responsible for bis part
in the systematic, conpulsory medical
inspection of the schools of the kug
dptu. The physical welfare of the
land is of vital concern. Ily judicious
medical supervision the schools could
be made nurseries of health for the
nation. Some of the schools for Por
tuguese arc in mute as urcent need of
visits from medical inspectors as any
schools where leprosy is supposed to
lurk. Lcpro3y is not the only disease
that needs watching. Everything that
sai the vitality of the rising genera
tion is matter for piofound regret. It
is a menace more to lie feared than
illiteracy itself. For it is true in the
matter of physical health that if one
member suffer, all the members suffer
with it. The children of white for
eigners in the net generation will suf
fer from vitiated constitutions if the
government docs not initiate more
strenuous measures to check diseases
now at woik among the school chil
dren of all nationalities. The problem
is not a hopeless one. The children
are the hope of every nation : and there
is hope for I iawaii if one tenth of what

1 r-'cnt 1 .sue nf tie Advctti-cr puts
the .11 tual c ondition of things very
rlearly. "The country cannot afford
to allows its present Chinese population
to he increased in numbers. It rannot
afford It for its own sake and it rannot
afford it on the score of adverse public
opinion in the United States." This
is an admirable statement of a truth
that must be well nigh axiomatic to all
but the selfishly blind, the indolently
careless or the stupidly content.
There has never come tinder the
observation of the writer a better dc
fense of the Chinese in Hawaii than
that made by a Mr. Watd, speaking
before a recent meeting of the Work
ingmcn'ii Union as reported by the
Bulletin. Calm in tone, argumenta
tive, comprehensive and romart, the
speech deserves more extended uir
rency than it has had. " It is not the
Chinaman's fault that he is here. He
is law abiding and industrious to a
fault ; his perseverance amounts to a
stolitl bravery ; he has rilled the most
important gap in the labor market, if
the legislature docs not legislate to
mitigate the various evils complained
of, it is not the Chinaman who irhb
bear the blame, for the simple reason
that he never interferes with the tolitics
or the government of the country."
All this may cheerfully be granted, as
a rule; and yet the Chinese is not a
desirable far tor in the commonwealth
unless he can be controlled. A few
Chinese merchants, like a few in this
town, would do credit to the merchant
class anywhere. A few -alas! a very
few- make excellent house servants.
The presence of a few Chinese artisans
is a boon to poor folks. Uut is the
aggregate a blessing or a curse? The
stench of portions of Niiuanu and
Hotel and Maunakea streets is part of
The chief reason that the Chinese
now here are undesirable was set forth
in these columns nearly a year ago.
They are here a colony of unmarried
males. Is it a wonder that gambling,
the opium habit, and nameless vices
consume so much of the time and the
earnings of the Chinese in our midst ?

tocracy we have no sympathy. It would be a
lapse into the chief and lief sjstcm a system
that not even the most ardent of " voting
Hawaiian's" cares to sec perpetuated. Solid
prosperity here means the prosperity of a
commonwealth of industrial families among
whom there shall be no undue preponderance
either of wealth or of poverty. Among every
community this side of Utopia there must be
rich, well-to-do and poor. Morality, thrift,
sagacity, the often loo elastic conscience, and
occasionally downright dUhoncsty, nre the
levers by which rich men lift their fortunes
above the level of their fellows. Immorality,
unlhrift, lax business habits, and sometimes
morbidly exacting consciences, keep men who
might be rich either merely well-to-do, or
poor. Good elements and bad enter into the
coniMMilion of worldly prosperity so-called.
Uut the dream of the Utopians need not be an
idle one if good men " pull together." We
can have in Hawaii just the conditions we seek
if the merchants, the planters and " Voting

hands. Hut we may not make this kingdom

The men who think, the men

by whom the appeals to race

The cMra low prices of sugar have
set the planters to thinking how they
can curtail expenses, and where the
leaks are, and how to stop them. We
have heard that some think they pay
too large freights, commissions are con

is and has been high for years, yet the
planter receives no benefit from it.
This matter was brought to the notice
of a leading merchant and plantation
agent recently, and he was asked to
explain. His reply was that he had
nothing to explain, as this was a busi

his house and constituents, and while

savs that Mr. Searles has expressed
himself as considerably annoyed at the

Herald two or three months ago. The
letter says that while Mr. Searles is
undoubtedly opposed to the treaty for
(justness reasons lie has not forgotten
his reception here, and speaks of
Hawaiian hospitality most appreci
atively. As an evidence of his good
feeling, apart from the treaty question,
Mr. Searles has recently delivered a
lecture on the islands, illustrated bv
Hawaiian views displayed by means of
a stereoptican. It would have been
more truly "real nice" of Mr. Searles
to counteract the impression made by

correctness in print.

dving out) a few minutes iefore teaching Ihe
store. Thrrc is no waste, no uncleanllness,
no flies and no dissatisfaction. Hut it may be,
because Ihe women tun this branch of the
business and present often n curious appear
ancehaving often only a portion of their
vision remaining, duo to too much competitive
business abllity-for women will fall otil some
times, even fish women.
The (iermans are fast following the Trench
system of covered markets a great improve
ment. Formerly, and in fact in many cities
to-day, esjcciatl) Ihc Austrian cities, notably
Vienna, jott nil! hear about 3 o'clock in the
morning the rumbling of lilllc carts, drawn
generally by a woman fastened on one stdc of
the pole, and a big dog on the other. These
come so early into the cily, for after 5 or 6
.V, vi., they ran bring in tio more. In rainy,
muddy weather, it is far from pleasant cither
lo sell or buy Ihe necessaries of life from the
little lwoths in the slrcit. The owners a're
obliged lo take them all down at noon, for
after I r.vt. no more can be sold, they must
then take down their stand and carry it home,
or pack it away in the ctlhr of some house
they have hired for the occasion.
The linglifch have theiV markets more local
ized. Ily that I mean that if joit want fruit
go to Covent Market, if meat some other place
As to the articles to lie found in the markets,
perhaps it would not be advisable or bcntficial
to Ihe appetites of the majority to know, for I
remember welt our first sensations ns we par
took of jackass tenderloin at a lestaurant ad
joining the ruins ol Pompeii, and only after
considerable forcible language did we finally
discover its quality.
The places where the cattle arc slaughtered
are throughout ldiropc very crude. I'iiie as
arc the central markets and nlso'the district
ones of Paris, the abattoirs which supply the
meats arc arranged with as few conveniences
as is possible to have. We visited one of the
largest behind the Hotel des Invalides, and
found what I espcel the) had in ihc Roman
lorum simply a stall, an asc, and n knife.
Hut for meats, ice and time ccilainly do
play an important part in all of the best holds
throughout the United States. Meat is sel
dom touched before it has lain on the ice for
at least ten da)s to two weeks. What jou
need in Ilonoliilu is more meat kept on ice.

In Texas they call it a romantic marriage
when a couple ol the neighbors get the briJe'h
father 1:1 a back room, and sit ou him to pre
stnt his interrupting and breaking up the wed
Mirabcau was proud of his cslrcmc ugliness.
He was so ugly that the boys used to stop hiin
in the street, and ask if Ids face didn't hurt him.
