If ever there arc time that "try
mens souls" at least the souls of
average men -times of financial rrisis
arc those lime. The pocket nerve is never
so sensitive as when trade is dull, prof
its small, bills payable pressing and
bills receivable not to be pressed. Com
mercial Hawaii is passing through just
such a crisis now and there ran never
he a better time for ralm examination
and serious reflection. There are a
great many reasons for the unhealthy
state of affairs now existing. It would
take too long and be probabl) tedious
to tell all the reasons if we, or any
one else, knew them all. Hut we think
a brief examination of one factor in the
I'vistinL' business complication which
is now hurting' nearly eery trader, and
nearly every trade patron, will set some
of us to thinking and perhaps help
us to correct the crying evil we
arc about to mention.
It is the practice of many residents
of these islands to import from San
Iranrisco and eastern cities goods and
products of various sorts, for their pri
vate use. In nearly every instance this
is done to the disadvantage of some
local trader here. If the action had
merely that effect it would be harmful
enough ; but the injury (like every in
jury) hurts more persons than one. No
trader who pays a trader's license and
employs clerks and other assistants
can afford to sell as cheaply with a
small trade as with a large one. He is
often compelled because of competi
tion to sell as low as another who is
doing better in the same line, and
must recoup by shaving salaries or by
stintinc himself. Groceries, dry goods,
clnthimr. books, stationery, drugs and
all sorts of miscellaneous articles come
in, through thrmailsandcsprcss, by every
steamer. Each purchase may be in it
self small, but the aggregate is an
nually enough to support one or two
general merchandise stores. The
writer may as well disarm criticism by
admitting that he has committed the
very offense he now denounces. He
did so thoughtlesly, as scores of good
citirens do, thoughtlesly, every month.
Now no one can fail to see the injustice
of it after examining the subject atten
tively The dealer, his clerks, his pat
rons all suffer -directly or indirectly.
As if this were not bad enough, the
government itself continues this policy
of several years past. The part of the
community tlrat we pay salaries to, in or
der that they may protect our rights and
country to buy material they ought to
buy of local dealers. They buy build
ing material, office stationery and
printed blanks for the government de
partments, etc. There arc things we
know of and there are doubtless many
others in the same direction. Now if
the cabinet ever gets into the hands of
men who are at once honest, intelligent
and public spirited, we may hope for
reform in the practice above indicated.
In the mean time, we who are not
in the ring must set a good example for
those who arc some timetobe at thehead
of affairs -when the disgraceful crew now
in power are things of the past.
These islands are very .small in area
and in population. We have a com
munity of interests. Very few are in
denendent. financially, 'of some one
else. If we help each other generally
there will be plenty of work at living
wages for all of us who arc willing to
work; and plenty of remunerative busi
ness for most of us who are in trade.
Hut wc cannot be a continuously

it is worth thinking about.
As the government of this kingdom
is at present constituted, it is impossible
to maintain a civil service at the high
est point of efficiency. The country
can never have cllicicnt servants until
it has trained them, and they cannot
be properly trained unless they can be
sure to remain in office during good
behavior, and do remain in Office many
years. " Wc believe in so radical a
change in the constitution of the king
dom that neither king nor any other
official shall have power to put men in
or out of office without satisfactory
reasons although wc recognize tle
nronrietv. even the necessity, of giving
the heads of departments the power to
suspend subordinates. The employ
ment of competitive examinations does
not always secure the best men to fill
government positions but it is the best
plan ever ueved, oecause, on uic
whole, the faires'u Favoritism and un
certain tenure of office are the twin
ev Is of the Hawaiian public service
to-day. Two years from now we ought
to have a well uigestcu law on tnc suu
ject a law that shall provide for the
examination of public officers j and that
shall remove, or reduce in rank, the
heads of deiartments when their unfit
ness is demonstrated. Much recently
has been done to simplify the problem
of civil service in the United States.
Independents who count on election

themselves with this important subject,

The death of Henry May is a loss

We greatly regret that the Guide

If the writer were asked to name the
besetting sin of newspaper reformers, he
would answer " smartness. " The
word "smart" has several definitions,
of which the most popular, in the
United States at least, is that of the
immortal Artemus Ward " 'I he
truly smart man is never quite satis
ficd until he has tried to assist light
ning by oiling the thunderbolts." Now
there is probably but one newspaper
writer on these islands who docs not
think himself born to teach the nation
just how best to govern itself. Wc lake
to ourselves some credit for discour
ing this nil smart writer, liecausc we
discovered him in the columns of a
dull and obsolescent contemporary a
paper that no one who possibly cin
help it ever reads, which maintains a
lare circulation because of its great
size, and consequent value to Chinese
l.iundrymen. As the newspaper writer
in question is probabl) the only writer
perhaps the only person in the
Hawaiian Kingdom, who, has- norut
and dried plan for regenerating the
kingdom, wc take great pleasure in
presenting his un-ideas to the readers
of the Press, as a grateful relief from
the irritating smartness of all the other
newspaper writers of Honolulu. Tl at

ology wcf.in make for the introduc

the following extract upon which we
propose to comment.

and not as a residence more or less temporary,

Hawaii from its slough of despond ; that there

)ct reached a state of things which makes such
advice of the slightest practical use.
It may be useless to say so; but it is
right to say so. There can be no ad
vance without organization. There can
be no organization without leadership.
Although the thinkers of the Indepen
dent party do not say that "people
resident here ought to regard this as
their permanent home," they do say
that, while here, residents ought to act
as if they did consider this their home.
Unless they do so act they neglect a
double duty to themselves and to
their fellow residents. When they get
so far as to recognize their duty to the
country in which they live, these res
idents, "men of all nationalities," will
be rcady"to merge" their "home pro
clivities in a combined effort, under
chosen leaders, for the good of this
country. Any resident who is not so
willing ought to be at least willing
to pack his trunk aud go home
to his fatherland. If we have not
"reached a state of things which makes
such advice of the slightest 'practical
use," it is because organization and
leadership have been lacking, to unite
and direct aright the Stirling intelli
gence of the masses, which, with proper
organization and the right sort of leader
ship, is generally equal to any em

A policy of aimless recrimination against the

improvement and no responsible exponents of
principles, will just suit that section of the
community. While every intelligent and lion-

of the country, no one can show that the gen

welfare of the party. Hut now that

organization help all of us? Organiza

Independent press ought chiefly to
contend, and an agreement to differ
courteously, if at all, would make the
newspapers of Honolulu more re
spected and consequently more 111

ent editors are human enough in that
regard. Wc have a common cause

trusting incompetent or selfish leaders,
if we permit ourselves to lose sight of

how they may be avoided, will have

Adulteration prevails in every com

some years since by Dqctor Hassell that

when the catches are released the fins
are thrown out from the side of the
ship and caught by the water, standing,
when the vessel is under heavy-way, at
right angles to the keel. In this posi

stopped within her own length by this
contrivance. Hither brake can be used
separately to throw the vessel in any
direction more quickly than could be
done by the rudder alone. Such a de

lessening the shock of collisions.

the duty of parents and sisters to "make

an indignity to a young man to use
such words regarding him : as though
it was not as much for him to make
home pleasant, as to find it so. Hap
piness for every one lies in the way of
duty, ft only tasters a vapid self-con

effort ought to be to make a man of
him. And so too, the whole method
of activity in a Christian Church is
often vitiated by the constant straining
to make the church attractive to this
class or that class in society. Let us
be manly in all our Christian work,

Lochman, a Pennsylvania photo
grapher, has been taking some photo
graphs of plants which are the delight
of botanists, and of great assistance to
physicians, since the species illustrated
are chiefly those having medicinal
properties. Far superior to these, how
ever, are the illustrations executed by
Japanese artists of the arboreal botany
of that empire. Each of these illustra
tions is drawn in colors upon a board,
about eight by fourteen inches in size,
vvjiich in each case is the polished wood
of the tree delineated. This is framed
by strips of the same wood, showing
the external bark; and at each corner
is glued a section of a branch' an inch
or so thick, showing the heartwood and
rings ol growth. The drawing is faith
ful in form and color, and gives with
wonderful fidelity the texture of the
leaves and blossoms, the rough ones
being dusted so as to give them the
velvety or wooly apiwarance of nature,
and the smooth ones shining with de
ceptive polish. Details of blossom and
fruit accompany the plant, and the
whole is not only valuable through its

The U. S. consul-general at Frank
fort, Germany, states some interesting
facts which show how little basis of
truth there is in the often impressed
notion that the fondness of Germans
for beer saves them from the evils of
intemperance which prevail among
people addicted to the use of distilled
liquors. In Prussia the consumption
of beer has risen to nearly 35 gallons
per head, (87,6 liters according to the
Prussian measurement) and 3 gallons'
(11 liters) of spirits in addition to the
beer. In the United btatcs the aver
age consumption of beer is about 10
gallons, and ol spirits yt gallons,
which includes that used for mechan
ical purposes. The number of drink
ing saloons has increased from 130,000
in i860, to 165,000 in 18S0. Of
crimes committed, 41 per cent, were
under the influence of liquor, and 50
per cent, of pauperism is due to intern
perance The Gothenbcrg system of
making the sale of liquor a government
monopoly has proved a failure. Pub
lic opinion in Germany seems to in
cline more to legislation restricting the
sale, allowing one saloon to a certain
number of inhabitants, the unit num
ber varying with the size ol the community.

You will notice that I am yet here.
My visit here has been longer than I
have made before, (there being no busi

should call on the queen and the young

a quarter past nine the tent for
dancing was thrown open and at ten
the supper-room, and as Mrs. Severance
said, a real fairy scene. 'Twas beautiful,
a fountain playing up in the centre of
the room with gold fish sporting about,
while the tables were spread with
every delicacy the market could afford.
It was the finest supper-room ever
laid out in Honolulu and under the per
sonal ore of the king. I was honored
with the '' commands " of the qnecn to
bring to her in her private parlor some
ice-creams and strawberries and doing
so sat down with her and a few others
to a quiet time which was very pleasant.
I leave here to day having had an
agreeable visit and cultivated the social
feeling with some friends to whom I
am warmly attached.
Rio de Janeiro is the paradise of
fern-collectors, over two hundred and
fifty species being found in its vicinity,

KOUTE AND TIME TABLE
"T"HE LATEST WORK ON SUGAR.
I found a neat cool room, prettily fur
nished, though nothing extravagantly so,
much like a well furnished room in
Hallowell. The queen was ' dressed
plainly in black, without ornament, be
ing in mourning for her adopted father.
She was very social and agreeable.
Pretty soon her little boy came in,
barefooted and in a short white frock.
He is just beginning to walk and tiot
ted about as babies generally do. He
looks well and bright, and did not seem
much afraid when his mother put him
into my lap. The only noticeable
thing of rank or royalty was that there
were three attendants constantly near
him. We made a short call and left
with invitations to call again which came
sooner than I expected. 1 he next
evening passing by the palace with Mrs.
ii. she asked me H I naa any objec
tions to call, of course I had none, so
we went in and met the king, who gave
us a frank and cordial welcome as to
old friends. Seating us in the queen s
parlor again they both ucre as social as
any friends could be. The baby com
ing in all had a bit ol Irolic
with him. On learning where we
were going to make a call the
king said he would follow us. They
both invited me to the festivities on the
joth in honor of the young prince's
The king joining our company we
spent an hour or two pleasantly indeed.
On returning he invited me to walk
home with him. Entering his house
gain, (the palace is not used except on
official occasions) we turned to the
right to bis appartments the queen's
are to the left , and entering quite a
large square room off from the hall,
took a large arm chair. The furniture
was, a long table in the. center of the
room, sideiioards, the king' desk, and
some-few pictures pn the walls. Draw
ing off his boots he settled himself into
his chair and we had a qood long so
ctable chat, i leaving at eleven o clock.
A few evenings after I was one ofthe
select. party that he entained at his sea
side cottage, in winch he did the hon
ors without the least ostentation. He
was the first to offer to be blindfolded
for a gameof blindman'B-bufT.and to go
outof the room lor a game ol, characters.
In fact there was nothing to distinguish
him from any private gentleman in
the room. Yet he can, if occssion re
quires, assume all the dignity neces
sary. I have written this out, as you may
feel a little interested, as you will re
member we played together years ago
and it is pleasant not to be forgotten
