It U downright squander to give any
public officer a sinecure, or to add clerk
to any department in order that clerks
already in office may cat the' bread of'
idleness in merrier comiwny. It is clear
that those items of the appropriation

of new clerks, or for Increased salarv lo

finance committee and fully discussed in

The opium bill has been killed, or ir
lisps Mr. I jlfkalani will say "scotched."
We opposed the bill and are glad it
was defeated, Hut we hope the mat
ter will not be allowed to rest there. It
is well that the nation go on record
against every form of the opium traffic.
Hut that is a mere beginning. It U
notorious that large quantities of opium
are smuggled into this txrt. It is a well
known fact that use of opium is increas
ing on the islands, not only ninong
Chinese, but among natives, half whites
and whites. 1 here arc not enough cus
tom house officials to prevent smug
gling : and there is not the lice per
sonnel to'break up the opium dens or
prevent retail sale. We must hae
jwlice reform before we can restrict the
traffic and lessen its evils. I'ricnds of
the present law must not rest content
with its mere presence on the statute
liooks. Christian men and women and
their well-wishers must devise and carry
out an organized effort for reform in this
terrible matter. If they do not, Mr.
Lilikalani's scotched snake may charm
so wisely two years from now that prac
tical men may join hand with the
friends of license, and choose another
eil in lieu of the one under which we
so shamefully exist. -
In common with other Honolulu
nowsimpers, the I'ress has been favored
with copies of the Washington Gactle
which contain charges against Lot. . s.
Spalding, President of the Planters'
tabor ami Supply Company. In the
absence of direct proof in the mailer,
we prefer to lieltcve the cluirges arc
part of a black-mailing scheme by the
American enemies ofthe treaty. It i
now in order for Colonel Spalding to
explain. If he cannot do so to the
entire satisfaction of the company, he
ought to be dismissed from his office.
It lias hitherto been our strongest
card that we were free from the lobby
ing tactics of the usual "ring." Our
lxat advisers have wisely counciled re
liance upon the justice of our plea that
tl(e treaty was truly reciprocal, it -Mr.
Sualdinir has done much to destroy
the American impression of our perfect
fairness, we may do something to re
store tlat impression by promptly re
buking JMr. Spalding.
We print to-day the second part of a
letter on the water resources of Hono
lulu. It clwllcnges attention by the
clearness and distinctness of its state
ments and liecausc of its startling an
lagonlim to the popular belief in the
necessity of storage reservoirs. Air.
tawrence's per comes at a good
time. An engineer is now in the em
loy of the government at work on a
system of water supply for Honolulu.
Until he has matured his plans,
completed his ottimates amtaubmitted
his conclusions, we have no right to
rejudg them. Hut until the matured
plan is so pithily indicated that ever

danger to the cjriMe of reform tthkli

unseemly brag ma bluster em the part
of a few Independents, and the adop
tion by at leftst one tmlervcndent -per
of a foolishly irritating policy of
small detraction and unucntlcmanly
nersonal welfare, altogether out of keep
ing wkh the dignity ofthe Indeiendcnt
canse. There are many iuestlons nrm
which existing party, lines will he tightly
drawrt. That is inevitable. We must
win or lose those issues as we control
or do not control a majority vote.
There arc other questions on which
agreement lietwccn parties is a mere
matter of m l and mutual conccsj.ion.
some of these latter-class questions are
orpteswng importance. The npifim
hill defeated on Wednesrlay is an
illustration. Now the rausc of reform
rannot afford to thow away its chances.
The assumption of a tone, of cither
bravado or Wlying must inevitably re
coil. Even were such a policy ever
warranted by good taste and sound
judgment, the numerical strength of
the Independent party makes that oli
cy impracticable. Wo may k able to
compel the cabinet to concede reform,
we nrc in no position to coerce the king
into the adoption of our plans. Right
or wrong the king's friends --however
they may thjnk of Mr. Gibson are a
unit in their support of what they con
sider the king's rights. The patty lash
is the very last thing likely to bring
them into harmony with reform. Dis
trust of the king's friends is one thing.
Holding them at arms length is an
other. Human nature is wonderfully alike
the world over. That is one of the
tritest of truisms. The Indcienilent
party may win unpledged votes by
conciliation. It can win nothing by a
haughty assumption of mounoiy in
that not loo common quality, integrity:
or by an attempt to whip into line those
who believe in good government, but
dislike the Independent plan of pro
cedure. This is plain language. We think it
is needed. If considered in the ..pirit
that prompts it, good may result. Most
of the committees appointed by Presi
dent Rhodes are all that the most
ardent Independent could wish. In
the language of a reformer who typifies
the liest that is in the nam: " 1 he

tigations will not necessarily determine
the status of the Indcjicndent party be
fore the nation. I he liuleienlent
larty charges Minister Gibson's ad
ministration with a deal besides finan
cial dishonesty while in office. Hut
the dollars-nnd-cents charge is the
most imiiortant one. It is by the sub
stantiation or refutation of this charge
that LithsomMn must chiefly stand or
fall. Provided llielcgislaturc throws
no safeguards around the ministers (by
hampering investigation in refusing to
vote iiowers that may be asked for) the
finance committee ought to make an
instructive, n convincing and a broadly
damaging showing, Hut until the in
vestigations shall conclude their labori
ous duties, it is not only idle, but un
just to predicate results. Good taste
and sound judgment arc equally im
perative 111 saying " Vt ait '. 1 lappily,
we who have waited nearly two years
for this investigation can now afford to
wait a few weeks longer.
We have confidence in both the
ability and the integrity of the finan e
commute, and vce.have no doubt th..:
they will accomplish a good deal. We
arc aware also that much time must
elapse before they can go their round
of investigation properly, and that the
temptation is always to pass over with
merely cursory examination those de
partments which enjoy the community's
confidence. It is jicrfectly true that
the public e.ects to find the accounts
of the clerk of the supreme court in
applc-nie order, anil his method of
booh keeping all that such methods
should lie. Out it is equally true that
a spHt of strict impartiality ought to
control its actions, so unmistakable an
impartiality that he who runs may read.
We feel compelled to sound this note
of timely warning, because we wish to
anticipate the criticism of the muni
tion. The Iwoks of the clerk of the
supreme court ought to be as closely ex
amined as those of any other employe
of the Kovernmcnt. His methods of
book keeping ought to lie rigidly scrut

of the department far the period, in

These arc serious times. 'They need

assumed that investigation was needed.
We have no right to predicate the re
sult of investigation. And, in common
with those of the party who are fight
ing for reform in the legislature and in
their business or plantation relations,
we must abide by the results of investi
gation for at least two years.
We fail to see why the salary of the
clerk of the hoard of education should
be $.5000 a year. 'The sum obtaining
in 1S82, then $2500, was ample. It is
true that the office is a responsible one,
but it is by no means so responsible or
so arduous as that of registrar of public
accounts. The secretary ol the board
of education performs purely clerical
unties, requiring ability and integrity,
but demanding no high order of mental
endowment and presupposing no long
years of previous education. The in
upector ol schools ought to be a man
of ripe education. So ought the prin
cipals of the leading public schools. If
there be money to pay high salaries it
ou-lit to go to them. The inspector is
already fairly well paid although he
has too much ground to go over in a
year. Many of the teachers are under
paid. It is proposed to increase the salary
ofthe police judge of-Honolulu. For
the period ending in 18S2, the salary
was $2400 a year. For the period just
ended it was $3000 a year. It is now
proposed to increase the latter sum to
$4800 a year. We are not prepared to
say that the increase is undeserved.
Hut we do say that if such an increase
be made it ought to be made on condi
tion that the police judge shall be de
barred from practicing law or engaging
in any other professional business.
We think the office of police justice of
1 lonolulu so important that its nictim
liant ought to be paid enough to secure
lus exclusive time and attention to the
continuous study of the cases, the
cmergancics and the characteristics
which demand his consideration.
We are distinctly in favor of the bill
lo appoint two new judges of the su
preme court. As we understand the
plan, one judge is to reside ou each of
the three islands, Hawaii, Maui, mid
Kauai, and two are to reside on Oahu.
Such a plan would make it possible for
the supreme court to sit in nearly con
tinuous session for two thirds of the
year, holding sessions in banc at this
city once or twice a year. We think
such an increase would be a judicious
one, would meet the needs of litigants
and serve the ends of jiutice,

which would be equal to conveying 0 cubic feet

present system needs reorganization more than
economizing the water supply forced itself uvin
the different communities, a careful examina
tion would reveal losscsducto leaky joints ai-.d
broken pipes, ranging from 20 to So per cent.
of Ihe whole supply in some cases. It is clear,
therefore, that any scheme of iuiprovem.-nt
here must include the service system, or the
rest would be of little value by itself.
If the above were the only supply, It would
give a population cf 30,000 a dally quantity per

In non-manufacturing tow

In manufacturing towns it is about 35 gallons
In the United States, as a rule, they ate
more liberally supplied, ranging from 33 to
65 gallons per head; New York Citywilh its
enormous resources supplying aliout loo gal
lons per head each day. So that with only
a part ofthe available supply from the Nuuanu
Valley source, frovrly ulitiud, vvc should be
belter oft than nearly every city in Ihe world
in the matter of town supply per head, with
our population of say 30,000.
l'auoa Valley, with a pipe head reservoir anil
small pipe line is, in my opinion, good for a
supply of 1,000,000 gallons in 24 hours, con
veyed to (lie Nuuanu reservoir. Makiki Valley
with the same arrangements could, I feel con
fident, spare Soo,ooo gallons per day if re
quired. Manoa Valley would .permit the
amount of 1 ,000,000 gallons per day with a
proper regard to rqurian rights, which with a
pipe head reservoir and small pipe line could
be led to Makiki reservoir for distribution.
My own observation in the above men
tioned valleys has led mc to believe that a
considerable prnrwrtion of the diflerent
streams are lost in transit, the system of
measurement herein recommended would re
veal the fact, and if it should prove that this
is not the case a plan of storage for irrigalion
in the Manoa Valley, that would not threaten
the safety ofthe inhabitants, could be adopted.
Said plan would render available for to a n sup

77ie ll'rrr i'tjif I'mitrurt,
The editor of this paper called yesterday on
Mr. G. W. Macfarlane and asked a distinct and
succinttatement of the last pipe tiansactiou
between the government and tiie firm of which
Mr. Macfarlane is head. This request was
made lie-cause of insinuations by the I lonolulu
Bulletin that Mr. Macfarlane's conduct in the
matter has savored of sharp practice, if 1101 of
irregularity. lie received an answer In sub
stance as follows :
"The pipe transactions between this firm
and the government began Juring the Wilder
administration and continued through the
Carter administration. Under the latter
regime every pipe importing firm in
town competed and our bid, being the lowest,
was accepted. We were then enabled to lav-
down superior pipe more cheaply than any
other firm liecausc of our f ilasgovv connections.
I'lie suoerioritv of (Jlasiiow nii Is nrL-nrov.
ledged everywhere and Ihe Glasgow pipe market
is lhc,cheaiest in the world. This superiority
consists chiclly in the method of casting.
Glasgow pipe is cast vertically ; in oilier
countries pipe is cast horizontally, the former
method insuring uniform thickness, which
enables the pipe to stand great pressure. Its
cheapness is insured because of Glasgow's
position as the large-,1 pig iron market si the
world. It was natural then that ihe interior
department should look to us for any further
supply of pipe needed by the eovcrnment. In
July or August of 1SS2, Minister Hush ap
plied to us tor an estimate upon a icquired
lenglli of pipe line, to be furnished in IS inch
pipe. We furnished the estimate. lie found
the total estimated cost largely in excess of Ihe
appropriation available. At Ihe beginning of
negotiations I had said to Minister llusli that
in my opinion not only were 18 inch pipe too
large for the purpose intended but that 12 inch
pipe w ould be amulc. He informed inc that
the requisition had been made out by the
superintendent of water works, who insisted
tl.at lS inch pipes were needed. I then sug
gested that he ask Engineer Stirling's opinion
as 10 tne sire required ; anil, 1 believe, lie
recommended 12 Inch or 15 inch pipe. It was
finally agreed to suWitutc 15 inch pipe for the
18 inch pipe asked for, for reasons already
explained. After the bargain had been closed
and I had received my contract, Mr. Sprcckels
suggested, ootn to tne ministry and to myscl ,
that for motives of policy, the pipe order (liein
a large one) ought to lie tilled in the United
States, provided it could be filled there as
cheaply as in Scotland. I assented to the sug
gestion and released the government from the
contract, with a proviso ihat if Mr. Sprcckels
was unable, through liU American connections,
to lay down the pipe here at the same figure s
my lender that the contract with mc should
continue in force. Mr. Sprcckels and I wet .
to San Francisco ou the same steamer, I lie'..,;
011 my way to England in the interests of im
migration. Two or three days after our
arrival In San Francisco, Mr. Spreckels in
formed me that the best tender he had
been able to obtain from pipe manufacturers
in the eastern states was two cents n-r Kiund,
Jelhtred inships in AVw iWi, which quo.
talion was a small fraction higher than the
contiact price of my pipe, laid dmvn on Ike
wharf at lonohilu. I then of course placed
the order in the hands of my Glasgow agents
for execution. The llullctin's insinuation
that I received vay for the whole pipe order
lieforc the plie left Kngland is untrue. I re
ceived only tin- customary one fourth, advance J
nnd nu-r lo receive one half on shipment from
lila-gow, and the remaining one fourth on the
arrival of Ihe ship in Honolulu Harbor. I was
not even furnished with a letter of credit, cus
tomary In similar large transactions. On the
contrary 1 was obliged to do the financiering
ihicllyout ofthe icourccs and ciedil of my linn.
m far from lieing paid In advance, I did not re
ceive Ihe final patuient of $50,000 until nearly
