The work whirl) Mn Leal ill lias
lccn lining during the ikm! week in
Honolulu, in the iausc of temperance,
deserves mote than a pawing com
ment. Mrs. Leavitt's methods arc
thoroughly commendable and in marked
contrast with thine of man) temperance
workers. As a scaker she is grace
ful, simple and unalTected, but cmi
nently direct and forcible. The con
spicuous position made necessary by
the work she has undertaken lias not
unsexed her, but i filled in a thoroughly
ladylike, vet signall) impressive man
ner. Her discourses have been marked
by their logic, their scnsiblcness, their
abundant and ampl) substantiated
statistics, their constant appeals to the
understanding instead of to the feelings
primarily. It is easy to infer that there
is nothing sensational about her ad
dresses. As a natural consequence
their tendency is to arouse an activepub
lic sentiment upon the liquor qustion,
rather than to work csccially uon
those who stand in personal need of
reformation. A rational appeal is of
no use to the usual drunkard. His
emotions must be roused to make the
impression necessary to awaken the
dormant powers of hh will. Mrs. Lea
vitt has chosen the better part, we think.
Appeals to drunkards are generally of
little av.iil, while, on the contrary,
whoever rouses a public sentiment
which shall stop the liquor traffic, will
have done a work of incalculable pub
lie benefit. The question of prohibition
ifi the United States is rapidly attaining
an importance which will presently
swallow up all other questions, and is
certainly destined to become the issues
tion which the parties of the not dis
tant ,futurc, whether they will or no,
must inevitably divide. We are glad to
sec it reo(encd here, and though the
wealth and influence of its enemies may
for some time to come prevent the
success of the movement in this country,
et the only way in which that success
can ever be realized is the prcriaration
of public sentiment by rational appeals
likethoscof Mrs. Lcautt. We realize
that those are appeals likely to meet a
great many more sneers than answers.
In spite of this truth, however, it is our
belief that Mrs. Leavitt will make many
converts to her views, aswe presume
she has done already. It is perhaps
true that the larger half of the best
element in this community already
share her opinions but, unfortunately,
the lest clement in this community are
Many ol Mrs. Lcavitt's statistics are
given in "The Liquor 1'roblcm in all
Ages" a book now being canvassed
for here. 'Ilic statistician has dealt the
drink traffic the deadliest blows that
giant evil has so far received. If one
has at command statistics that cannot
be gainsaid one has a weapon that can
not be broken. Mrs. Lcavittjs lecture
last Monday night dealt chiefly with
the medical phase of the question.
The question "Is alcohol a true stimu
lant ?" was denied; the assertion '-l
cohol has a place in medicine that no
other remedy can fill" was controverted.
In her position in that particular phase
of the drink question she has been ably
seconded by one of the highest thera
peutic authorities in the United States,
the Boston Journal of Chemistry,
whose editor has declared that, in his
judgment, based on what he considers
the most scientific authority brought to
the consideration ol the topic, Ihtrt is
no ust made cj 'alcohol in mtJicint or Iht
arts thai might not btlltr bt strvtJ by
somt elhtr agtnt. If this is untrue it
ought to be easy to disprove it. If it
is truo as some of the best specialists
in therapeutic chemistry IhjIIcvc it is
clearly the duty of physicians anil
patients to mite in banishing it from
the world of manufacture.
The llulletin has made a serious
arraignment of the health of Honolulu.
We believe it vvas honestly made with
the sincere and commendable desire
to promote the common good. Wijh
the view- that sanitary conditions are here
ncgicctcu, we- tuny agree. tint wc
think the Hullctin loses sight of the
saving grace of the trade winds. If
we had not those health-giving, life
giving breezes the town would inevita
. bly become a (wstilant breeding place
for disease. We think the health sta
livtics do not bear out the Hullctin's
sweeping charge. On the contrary, we
believe Honolulu to be one of the
healthiest cities in the world. Hut we
do not believe even the trade winds
can continue indefinitely to keep it so ,
and wc hoc public opinion may soon
crystalizc into some plan whereby the
drainage, the senate and the street
cleaning problems may be solved
We arc glad to note the coocratioii
of our rontcmoraries in the attempt
to check the outrageous action of the

We hope those beauty butchers may be
brought to a sense of justice if not to a
legal understanding of it.

On Dctctnlwr 1st next Mond.iy
the new gold law- goes into effect.
Whether it shall work successfully, and
without causing derangement, depends
iqion the way it starK Mr. Davies in
his letter to the Ciaiette presented
very forcibly the reasons why silver cer
tificates should not be presented for
(Ktymcnt with the mere design of draw
ing the gold from the treasury. It is
equally vital to the success of the nevv
Inw that faj mints of tltbls anil obliga
tions oj rt try kin J should bt rigidly it
quit (J in gold. The temptation to re
ceive only silver from " slow" debtors
will be very great. Hut if the eager
creditors of Honolulu shall consent to
take silver from their debtors, only a
few months of such a tolicy will suffice
to render the gold law ns inoperative as
the old law of tS;6.
To he forewarned is to be forearmed.
Let no one by any casuistic reasoning
persuade himself that if he takes silver,
for a while at least, in larger proportions
than the law stipulates, it will be easier
thereafter to get gold into circulation.
A currency 'aw cannot be enforced
piece meal. Not will it enforce itself.
Gold onl) must be employed as the
current-), eveept for ayment of debts
of ten dolbrs or less; and for that silver
can be used. If we wish gold to stay
here and command no premium we
must use it. If we continue to use sil
ver it will drive gold out of the king
dom The law now makes United
Stales gold legal tender "in the pay
ment of all debts, public and private."
Section 1 of the gold act provides that
the standard silver coins of the United
States- and the silver coins of this
kingdom "shall be a legal tender for
any amount not exceeding ten dollars
in any out pay mint." In the face of
this clear enactment, making silver
legal tender for paying debts which are
ten dollars or less in one amount, an
impression is somewhat current that
silver can lawfully be used in paying
debts of over ten dollars: i. e., il the
debt be fifty dollars, ten dollars can be
paid in silver and the remaining forty
in gold The law allows no such pro
ortiomng to be made. This construc
tion would be equivalent to saying,
notwithstanding the law making' gold
legal tender for the payment of all
debts of whatever amount, qualified by
the concession that silver may be used
to discharge debts not exceeding ten
dollars in any one payment, that tin do!
lars'of all payments larger in amount
than ten dollars may be paid in
silver. This construction would inevi
tably lead to the employment of so
much silver as to render the gold law
abortive. There is such a thing as having a
law declaring gold to be the legal ten
der and, at the same time, silver
be used by the community to the ex
clusion of gold. This would soon put
gold at a premium and all the evils of
high prices, high exchange, scarcity of
a circulating medium, by many years of
bitter experience found to be incident
to a silver .currency, would again be
fastened upon uon us.
This appeal is mainly addressed to
the officials of the government treasury,
the bank and the large commercial houses
of Honolulu. Whether a healthy state
of finances, on a solid gold basis, shall
be inaugurated next Monday depends
largely perhaps entirely upon tiie
way that payments are made on the
first day of the nevv law.

A correspondent of the Guide has
called attention, very pertinently we
think, to the burning of rubbish so in
discriminate!)' practiced in all parts of
this city. The -writer of this sympa
thizes heartily with him, the more so
that both have been sufferers from the
same cause. The ' smudge" (it de
serves no more elegant appellation)
raised by these fires, is really insuffer
able. Not a day passes in which some
of these piles of rubbish are not smoul
dering, in more than one part of the
town. On a fine trade-wind day, when
a pleasant breeze is blowing (rom the
mountains, it is no exaggeration to say
that the smoke from one of these fires
will taint the air for a block. And on
the other hand when the air, as it is at
this season of the year, is often still, it
is no uncommon thing for the smoke
of a single fire to taint it for days,
giving the whole atmosphere ol the
neighborhood a faint blue tinge, and
imparling to it a suffocating odor,
which makes one temporarily at least in
love with death, and quite insensible
to the advantages of this world. I'eople
always seem to clear up their rubbish
at the most inauspicious times, and in
the most aggravating manner. We
have heard of one worthy gentleman
who always burnt his rubbish in a deep
hole. Of course the smoke darkened
the whole heavens and penetrated the
entire neighborhood, to the infinite de
lectation of ilic inhabitants thereof. His
Majesty King Kalakaua is a prime
tinner in this resjcct, and the writer has
run the gauntlet of his ornamental wall
under circumstances which reminded
him v cry forcibly of a previous attempt to
circumnavigate Halemaumau. This
may crhaps seem to some a rather
small nutter, but it is not too small to
be the proper object of reform. It is
o us a matter ol astonishment that
the energetic board of health, guided
and inspired by the wisdom cf its eru
dite president, has not long since solved
this trilling problem of public "conven
ience and health.
It is claimed from recent experiments
.that bran contains a noteworthy amount
of true gluten, and that any process
which would remove simply the three
external protective Ia)crs of the grain,
during the production of flour, would
afford a better and chc.icr flour than
that in ordinary use.
Additional information concerning
the new ana-sthctic, muriate of coca
ine, confirms the favorable reports
which have been previously received.
It benumbs win to some extent in
its effect ujkhi the eye alone is enough
to make the discovery a most impor
tant one. Kaller, a Viennese medical
student has just reason to congratulate
himself upon this great "find."
The culture of tea has been begun
in Natal, whose conditions of climate
are favorable to it, and the experiment
is meeting with success. There is so
large a consumption of tea in South
Africa that it will be some time before
there will be any cull for the tea-planters
to export ; but samples scut to Loudon
are pronounced to be of high quality.
and there is no reason to suppose that
tea may not in future be a regular prov
durt of Natal and the neighboring pro
inccs. In the picking, Kaffirs arc
found to make excellent servants, so
that it is not necessary toimpoit China
France contains something over a
million horses suitable for cavalry ser
vice, and as these arc liable to be
"requisitioned" in time of war or other
emergency, an annual census is taken
in order to know where they ate and
precisely how many they number.
The owners of these horses have to y
a tax, which varies from one to five
dollars, according to the size of the
town they live in. I)y this complicated
arrangement nearly jwo millions of
dollars arc raised annually, which sum
goes into the general treasury, and the
effect of which is to discourage the
breeding of horses of 'his character,
half a million of which would be needed
to be put the cavalry on a war looting.
Among the thousand ingenious forms
which philanthropy takes in London,
one of the least conspicuous but plea
santestis the "sea-shell mission" to the
children of the poor and young invalids
in the hospitals. Its friends especially
the youngsters - who live near the sea
or visit its shores in Summer, gather
great quantities of shells and bright
pebbles from the beach, which they
make up into assorted lots, put into
boxes of a regular size and distribute as
interesting playthings to those to whom
poverty or illness denies both visiting
the sca-shorc and buying toys. An out
growth of this mission has been the
custom of making up scrap-books out
of pictures and newspaper clippings,
hundreds of which are annually scat
tered through channels known to the
society. " Both of these missions are
worthy and easy oHmitation in New
York, not only because the persons to
be benefitted are here as much as in
London, but because it so effectually
enlists the sympathies and utilizes the
nimble fingers of the children, educat
ing them toward a sweet charity in
after life," says a Nevv York paper.
In another column, a correspon
dent, discussing, with satiric pl.t) ful
ness rather than logical earnestness,
the ethical questions brought out by
the late election in the United States,
has, notwithstandingthe spirit in which
he has written, placed before his read
ers in a "taking" manner an aspect
of the question not generally discussed.
The large space devoted this week to
Thanksgiving Day prevents any thing
like a satisfactory editorial discussion
01 tne American election. Jfut we
think one fact ought not to be lost
sight of by any one : The Republican
party, has been the party of substantial
progress. If the fusion of Democrats
and Independents shall take up and
carry on the threads of development,
the defeat of the Republicans may prove
a national blessing. It, on the other
hand, the Democratic party shall be
able to carry out its oft-repeated threat
of "undoing"'' the work of the past
twenty-four years, the calamity will
mean national humiliation and, to nore
than a trifling extent, human retrogres
sion. A gentleman has called the writer's
attention to an article in the Daily
Evening Bulletin of this city headed
Dead-Heat Sugar,and has suggested that
it was "suggested" by a recent article
in the New York Nation. The article
referred, to appeared in the Nation of
uctooer 3ru, ana was headed lite
German Sugar Crisis. If the Hullctin's
article was inspired by the Nation's- -
and a careful reading of both docs not
sustain the charge there is nothing
unprofessional, nothing dishonest, noth
ing in any way unjustifiable in the
action. It is the universal practice of
newspapers, the world over, to re
write information from other papers. It
can scarcely be otherwise on the part of
small a)ers in obscure partsof the world.
There is no month in which San I'ratv
cisco papers do not take Hawaiian
news from Honolulu paers without
a word of credit. The facts of the
Bulletin's article were partly identical
with the facts of the Nation's. Hut the
language was its own, and the reason
ing also, we think. If the Hullctin
never docs anything worse than that,
it is clearly on h' tod to the news
taper New Iwviuten.

We may here properly ask 1 " What has this
momentous struggle of I S3 (developed?" Inlhc
abicnce of prominent ideas and principles of
statesmanship what have men on both sides to
say for or agalnvl their chosen candidates ?" To
an intelligent observer from a natural stand
point the evident reply to the question, " Why
not vote for Cleveland," has been -became
"he has beelTan Impure man." To a simlhar
question in reference to Mr.' Illalnc -" He
cause he lusjiecn a dishonest man."
We have thus clearly manifest an unexpected
moral sensibility in the American people, ex
hibited In ajnost striking manner in life Was
there ever before in any country so clearly an
original moral classification ? As soon as the
governor ofThefl-mpire State was In nomina
tion fur the presidency, It was made known to
the country that nearly all Republicans have a
horror of Impurity, n most intense ami con
scientious horror. The great senator from
Maine was no sooner made the candidate of
the great luily which has ruled for almost a
quarter of a century than the guileless Demo
crats rise up to ciprcss their abomination of
fraud and falsehood. Who could have fore
seen such armies of moral dcclaimers against
two familiar tonus of iniquil) ? Whal philo
sophic mind in Iauope or America can ex
plain the secret tie which unites with veracity
on the one hand, and protection will! purity
on the other ?
To what extent have American residents in
the Hawaiian Islands rcalied that in hoping
for the election of Mr. Blaine as known to be
friendly to the Hawaiian treaty they have
been icalous to uphold chaste living ? The
majority polled In the sentimental vote must
logically be- interpreted as a rebuke to all un
cleanness In personal living while the com
paratively few votes for Mr. Cleveland carried
with Ljicm a protest against dishonesty.
The ethical issue is distinct. The two parlies
assert it with peculiar emphasis. The opinion,
conviction, passion and will ol the people
could not be more stronely expressed. The
vole has been very close ; a little more than
one half of the people there have rebuked
dishonesty, almost ;one half have rebuked
unchastity. As the voice condemning dishon
esty has prevailed, a little more than half the
country will be honest, and the rest chaste.
The names of liar, trickster, thief, with all the
terms expressive of greed and want of princi
ple will no longer be Applied to Democrats
who arc henceforth all of them honorable men.
No Republicans, whether editors, speech
makers, office holders wire pullers or caucus
operators can b dissolute, but on the other
hand must become paragons of domestic vir
tue. Henceforth it w-i'.l be proper to speak of
a noble man as honest like unto a Democrat ol
a good woman as modest like unto a Repub
lican. What a change there must be about to
come over political anil social circles I We hail
a transformation in morals'and manners which
shall be felt from the Capitol and the White
House to the hut of the new settler in Wash
ington Territory. The campaign just ended
has had of course its animosities, extravagances,
personalities, slanders, detractions and pro
fanities. Does the parade of honesty and
chastity mean that the United Staleshasbeen the
scene for the last four months of a growth in
national purity and integrity, or have
we heard simply the din of

the government proposes to make some exten

A Typtcnl Arrldent.
A week ago last Thurday night, Mr. John
Sullivan, part proprietor of the Fashion Stables
and one of the best-known and most fa
vorably known carriage drivers in town, left
his horse and carriage standing beside the curb
ing for a moment, intending to speak to a
passenger and return. A man, himself a car
riage driver, conceived the idea that it would
be vastly funny to jump into Ml. Sullivan's con
ve)ancc, drive "around the block" and rejurn
the propety in good order. No sooner thought
than acted. 1 le sprang Into the carriage, gave
an Indian war whoop, and drove rapidly out
Hotel street towards Maunakea. Turning
swiltly into Smith's lane, the furiously reckless
driver ran the carriage against that of
a native, upsetting the latler's carriage but
proceeding with Mr. Sullivan's carriage unin
jured i and followed by the horse of the native
carriage, horse and vehicle having parted com
pany. Into Bcictania, along it to Nuuanu,down
to Hotel.und along the latter towards Fort
thundered the now thoroughly frightened but
still partially controlled horse of Mr. Sullivan,
followed by the freed horse of the native.
About opposite Lewis's grocery, Mr. Sullivan,
hearing the noise of the return, sprang into the
street to stop the runaway, as he rightly con
jectured it to be. But the speed of the mad
dened animal was not to be so.hghtly checked,
and poor Sullivan was dashed against a fence
or building on the mauka side of Ihe street jand.
when picked up by Mr. Dodd and others, was
frightfully bruised and insensible.
There is a reason for telling this story so
long after it happened. Fortunately, horse
and vehicle were recovered before the damage
done vvas serious, The man who caused the
mischief was not killed. The law has made
it possible to put him under bail of $500,
charginc him with " furious and reckless driv
ing," and with malicious mischief. Mr. Sulli
van will prubably recover his health and strength,
now seriously ilnpairtd; and it is perhaps pos
sible that he may recover damages that shall in
part make up to him his lost time. That is
not the question much as the public ought
and does sympathize with the sufferer.
The reason for this mention is to call atten
tion to the self evident fact neglected as so
many self evident facts too often are that if
there had been no liquor sold In Honolulu the
accident would not (In all human probability)
have happened. .
Some notion may be got of the con
sumption of timber b) the railways of
the world from the statement made by
France in regard to her railways.
According to this statement, French
railway companies use 3,563,000
sleepers, or ties, in the course of a twelve
month, which is equivalent eto a daily
consumption of-7,000. As each tree
does not yield upon an average more
than ten sleepers, 700 trees are used
each day, while a further quantity of
100,000 cubic yards of -timber is re
quired annually for construction and
repair of bridges, rolling stock and sta
tions. The latest announcement as to the
probable ancestors of the mammalia,
(and consequently of man) comes from
I'rof. E. I). Cope, the paleontologist,
who believes that he has found them
"in the pelycosauria an cxiirflt type
of reptiles which, of all reptilian types,
according to his reading, shows at once
the most batrachian or mammalian
featutes." All of which will doubtless
Interest Professor Scott.DoctorKodgets

local scientists generally.
Some persons who arc color blind
