While the inclination to deprecate
the want of activity in various lines of
business is so prevalent that many arc
continual!) bemoaning the dull times,
wc would like to help such to look
with more hopefulness upon the con
dition of trade as now existing. The
ideas presented by a numlicr of. busi
ness men and others that time arc not
a bad a they might be; that other
places are pissing through a like period
of business depression; and that con
tinually crying "woll" is frightening
cautious men into timidity and driving
timid ones out of the country, have a
stronger semblance of truth in them
than people will be willing, generally,
to admit. When we take into con
sideration the continued heavy ex
portatioi. of domestic produce that has
taken place the past quarter and com
pare the same with the value of im
portation for the same period, it will
be seen how much is in favor of the
lomuicrcial credit of the country.
Kach trip of the Mariposa and Ala
meda of late has averaged nearly a
quarter of a million dollars value in
domestic exports, and for the three
months ending March 31st, the total
vahlc of all exports from the islands
foots up $3,6,1,9, 473.31, a gain over the
same period of last year of $230,05.1.67.
The valuation of importations we can
only obtain approximately, but from
the best means available they show a
valuation of $011,903, which, as com
pared with last j ears' first quarter,
iho a falling off of $434,897, exclu
sive of coin imports. (Kor these figures
wc arc indebted to the courtesy of
collector-general of customs, Col. C. 1'.
laukca). '1 his, on its face, shows
a healthy condition of trade, but
wc will go further and endeavor to
show wherein wc arc actually espcri
dicing a blessing in disguise.
It is needless to reiterate here the
causes that have led to the present
condition of things. Hut recognizing
the fact that ajicriod of trade inactivity
is upon us, it is but meet and proer
that vvc should stop in the whirl of im
petuosity from our seven vcars of
plenty and learn the blessing of
economy, even though it be from
necessity. And this must needs be
general to be effective. The long spell
of over importation engendered ex
travagance among our people, reckless
ness with some importers, creating a
false estimate of the business capacijy
of the islands and an unstable basis of
government revenue. The recent
lessons in currency and exchange have
been a means of enforcing care in im
port orders that could hardly have been
brought home to dealers in any other
way. 'I'hU, in turn, modifies the re
quirements of trade, lessens the public
revenue and helps to stay the squan
dering propensities of an extravagant
government. And while we are ad
monished to economy in public busi
ness ami private life, it is creditable to
us if we turn with more diligence to
the development of new industries or
icvive drooping ones. It is no evidence
of wisdom to lock up capital at .such
times as these when opportunities for
profitably developing the industries of
the country present themselves ; it is
suicidal. Various projects of late have
licrii suggested, and some arc being
looked into with the encouraging pros
ccl of greatly benefiting the islands
providing they arc taken hold of pro
perty by proK'rty owners and capital
tits. If new industries and enterprises
ate entered tion, and our existing one?
prosecuted with vigor, the lessons of
the hour tor intelligent, economy and
persevering industry will not have been
Poor Advertiser! So you have been
rebuking the Honolulu new spaperwotl'J
and find it incorrigible, do you? and
your special grievance is that the telling
of the incompetency of those who are
'running' the Government in defiance
of law and honesty, will tend to dis
courage immigration, is it? Now Court
Journal the truth is that it is the actt
I of the present government officials, and
not what is uiJ about these illegal,
ciuniual, and ruinous transactions, that
prevent a desirable class of immigrants
from making this country their home.
We want as much as any one in the
community, an increase of imputation
of honest, industrious, decent loplc.
Wc know that many such arc kept

It i leasing to learn that local effort
is being put forth in the manufacture
of lime. This article" is largely im
ported, both for building and sugar
manufacturing needs, and to an extent
that probably few of our readers arc
aware. Reference to custom house
statistics for the past four years shows
the average requirement of the islands
to be 11, oo barrels per annum. In
early years, when labor was so cheap
that coral from the reefs could be
obtained readily in quantity, Honolulu
a well as other parts of the islands had
their lime kilns, but of late the home
article has been unknown. On the
Waimanalo estate of Mr. James Camp
bell, near Nanakuli, on this island, lime
stone of such a quality is found a fur
nishes lime of such excellence for clarify
ing purposes that it is given the prefer
ence over the iuqiortcd article by the
Waimanalo, Waianae, Wailuku and
other plantations that have used it.
Much credit is due those who arc en
deavoring to utilize local material in
Stone for building purposes ha also
been quarried from a portion of the
same estate, and is familiar to many
from its use in the St. Andrews' Cathe
dral, now in course of construction.
This stone is not difficult to work,
looks well in its rough-dressed state
and is susceptible of a high polish.
Wc have no figures of comparative
value of similar imported material, but
from the amount paid abroad for. tiles,
stone and brick evciy year the
average since 1S80 being nearly $20,
000 per annum it would seem to
show there was a field for some local
claim upon this foreign drain. During
these time-of cessation of business
activity it is eminently fitting to ex
amine into possibilities of developing
local industries of whatever sort, since
it serves the double purpose of saving
the money to the country and makes,
probably,- a blade of grass grow where
none grew before.
Some time since public attention
wa called by the Press to the subject
of utilizing the stone available here for
building purposes, curbs, posts, etc,
and the several buildings that had
been erected out of home material
were referred to. For such stone as
could be quarried here readily,
machinery could be obtained to
facilitate the dressing, which would
modify the expense of building to-day
over what it cost years ago; and even
the refuse of dressings would be ser
viceable in road-making. Enquiries,
with samples of stone, showing the
quality to be worked, submitted to
American or European manufactures
of such machinery, would obtain in
formation as to the best plant suitable,
whether for sandstone or the volcanic
boulders of Kamoiliili. If the latter
could be utilized the double benefit
would be gained of clearing a waste
stretch of country and rendering it
available for pasture land, if nothing
else. The government might do a less
meritorious act than to obtain such a
plant to use with prison labor in pre
paring the volcanic stone of this section
for its own buildings or other neeifs, or
for the public generally, and utilize the
narrow-guagc railway on Ueretania
Street in bfinging it to town. As pre'
viously remarked, all the refuse could
be utilized for macadamizing purposes
on our streets. The stone might cost
more per cubic foot than imported
brick, but the durability and other con
siderations would, no doubt, more than
prove an off-set.

The exceeding thankfulness of some
eoplc for very small favors was never
more beautifully illustrated Jhan in the
tumultuous jubilation of the govern
ment scribe over the sale of seven thou
sand dollars of government bonds.
The daily organ wagged its tailfigu
ratively sneaking, extended its ears,
as one would say, to the fullest extent
of their longitude and kicked up its
metaphorical heels in a way that was
equal to a whole circus, and all because
the government had found some one
to lend it seven thousand dollars. We
hate to be unkind; in fact it pains us
excessively to make any suggestions
calculated to chill the exuberant and
quite natural pride of those who have
so seldom anything to be proud of.
At ihe same time we cannot help sug
gesting to our gushing neighbor and to
the fractional part of the ministry who
are capable of understanding such mat
ters, a few considerations of an arith
metical character which perhaps in the
fulness of their joy, may not have oc
curred to them
The amount appropriated by the last
legislature for the current biennial
period was something over three mil
lion eight hundred thousand dollars
The judicious expenditure of a mod
erate amount of chalk on the back
side of his office door will reveal to the
editor of the Advertiser the interesting
and not altogether irrelevant fact that
this amounts to something over five
thousand dollars a day for each and
every day of the entire two years, Sun
days and holidays included. Leaving
Sundays and holidays out of the calcu
lation it will be found that the amount
of expenditure authorized and contem
plated by the assembled wisdom of the
realm was about six thouand two hun
drcd and fifty dollars for each business
Things in this world have to be
looked at comparative1)', so to speak ;
their teal importance can only be un
derstood by considering their relation
to other things. An inch on a man's
nose is of considerable importance at
least to the person who wears the nose,
while an inch on the height of Halca
kala is a matter of no perceptible mo
ment, even to the members of the gov
ernment survey. In the same way
seven thousand dollars may be a con
siderable sum of money for some pur
pose or to some (arsons. To the
victim of chronic impcr.uniosity, with
ncvei two quarters to jingle together,
such a sum might seem like a fabulous
and inexhaustible fortune. It might
even be untold wealth to some of the
government officials and thciradvocatcs,
were those persons paid according to
the value of their services and com
pelled to live on what they honestly
earn. Hut for a government whose
average weekly expenditures arc or
would)c if the money could be got
more than five times that amount, it
hardly seems like a sum .sufficiently co
lossal to get hysterical about. The joy
of our neighbor reminds us of the grati
fication experienced by Mr. Cnimmels
when the "supc" peeping from behind
the curtain announced that two more
people had come into the pit. Seven
thousand dollars a trifle over one day's
expenditure bears about the same re
lation to the pecuniary needs of the
government which two people in the pit
do to a paving audience.
We sincerely hope the Minister of
Finance will not puzzle himself over the
above calculation. He could never un
derstand it and it might save him the
headache. A cabinet officer who will
put forth an official treasury statement
which cannot be balanced by over forty
thousand dollars and then is entirely
unable to explain the discrepancy had
better keep clear of figures.

Notwithstanding all the talk of the
Advertiser about the dullness of busi
ness elsewhere, and our low prices for
sugar and the responsibility of the in
dependent newspapers in inducing and
maintaining the depression which exists
in business of all kinds in the country,
the mechanic and artizen as well as the
merchant, the native as well as the
foreigner,know that it is neither of those
causes which tend to maintain the state
of affairs .compiairied of ; that depres
sion is mainly owing to the instability
and incompetency Jpf the cabinet to
transact govcrnmentalbusiness. They
know as well as any of us that the men
in power have signally failed to keep
up the credit and good name of the
government, and that there is no faith
to be kept with them, and that a gov
ment without credit and unable, or un
willing, to meet its obligations, cannot
but exercise a most depressing effect
upon the general business of the coun
try. And lavishness and favoritism in
the management of public affair only
helps to pile up the distress. The in
dependent press has only asserted what
it has been amply able to prove to the
common sense of the community with
reference to the causes at work, but the
Advertiser thinks fit to ignore all state
ments of'facts and to meet logic with
baby accusations. The independent'
press cares not a fig whether Messrs.
Gibson, Gulick, Kapena and Neuman
retain office, so longas their stay there
is not inconsistant with the public good
and disastrous to the business enter
prise of the country, as evidenced by
the maintainance of government credit,
by the industrious prosecution of pub
lic works much needed, and by their
exhibition of a disposition to avoid
favoritism instead of colluding with in
dividuals for their own benefit at the
expense of the generality of the tax
payers of the country.
People here can remember the time
when government obligations were
looked uon as good as cash, when the
government was prosperous and its credit
so good that its bonds were greedily
bought up in Honolulu by home capit
alists as fast as issued. Such a state of
affairs prevailed through more reigns
than one, and under many cabinets,
but such a state of things has been
altogether changed within the few years
of the existence of the present cabinet.
And people, moreover, knew that our
revenues are ample for all needful ex-
tienses, and more ; that there is no
need remaining, but that competent
and reliable men (in whom not only
home capitalists, but all rfassts can feel
confidence) be placed in office.
The government may need money,
it does need considerable to tide itself
over its present difficul'jes, but until
this has been accomplished, it will
never get it. People want better security
for their money than the guaranty of
a cabinet that is forever shirking its
obligations and can unblushingly violate
law to save themselves. In conclusion
wc would say that no newspaper talk
can injure rVtanimon reputation which
the present administration have earned
by their own acts. And the govern
ment organ may toot never so long and
loud its dismal complaints against its
opponents, it will always be ineffectual
in its attempts to influence people, 'so
long as it is known that it is owned and
run by the very clique who are rcspon
tiblc for all the existing evils.
The Advertiser declares it demon'
strated on npnl tst, 'that the over
coinage of silver would force gold into
circulation to a limit t J t.xttnt.' Hut
then you ought to have known, O Court
Journal I how foolish it was for you to
attempt such a mathematical demon
stration on the first day of April and
draw such an illogical conclusion.

1 lie morning service opened with a voluntary
of organ and violin beautifully rendered by Miss
Annie Uustace and Mr.A. Marques which made
Ihe service one of unusual inteiest. The Moral
decorations were arranged with care and exhibi

with creepers and passion v inc. while vases of
beautiful roses adorned the desk. Underneath
the pulpit was a centerpiece of flagrant roses
and lilies surrounded with island ferns. On the
walls were vines, with peeping flosters and
calla lilies nestling among leathery ferns.
The services were conducted in an impres
sive manner by the Kev. E. C. Ofxel, who
administered the rite of baptism to three chil
dren, and preached a seirnon from tl.e words
in Ket elation l:lS, "I am he that lncth and
was dead I and bchald, I am alive forcsermorc,"
The preacher said : "These aie words of the

It is Uaster music and the resurrection jubilee.

the serpent's head. The man of sorrows has
become the monarch of the unit crse. Worthy Is
the lamb that ssas slain, to receive jiowcr and
riches, wisdom and honoi, glory and blessing.
The subject this morning is the Resurrection
of Christ. The death and the rcsuiiection are
the foundation and corner atones cf our religion;
the two hinges on which the door hangs.
The resurrection was an cs cnt of commanding
importance to Christ and mankind ; an act of
Imposing and stupendous power. To raise others
to raise himself, to take up the life that he had
voluntarily laid down, to tesuscitate his own
body and to exclaim in the self-sufficiency of
his omnipotence, "I am he that liseth and was
dead, and behold 1 am alive fores crmore,"
became his most sublime miracle.
As to the proofs uf the fact of Christ's resur
rection, there had been traces and t)pcs of the
resurrection of the dead and the life everlasting
germs of this sublime doctrine in the Old
In the gospels three cases are recorded;;
persons who were raised from the dead by the
power of Christ. The doctrine of immortality
and the isibillty of a resurrection had the
been made manifest In human history."
Having called attention to the numerous
witnesses and the value of corroborated testi
mony, the speaker said: "Son any one
should aver, ' I do not believe that Christ rose
from the dead; it is impossible; a delusion,
fanaticism,' the women who stood by the
empty grave ami the apostles testify in unison :
' We have seen it and felt it and have it, and
it holds us in hope unto life eternal.' "
In the evening a large floral cross with n
beautiful dove over it, stood in front of the
pulpit and formed the centerpiece amid stands
of fragrant floivers. The services w ere mainly
carried out by the children of the Sunday
School under the direction of the superinten
dent, Mr. II. K. Dillingham. The cantata.
The btnty uf the Resurrection, was well ren;
dcrcd, the tweet voices of the children being
it! almost perfect unison and Easter hymns
were sung with lovful animation. The Instru-
m, .F1,k,u . sen p cu
an anincm i.y tnc cnoir, uncicr me icauersmpi
of Mr. Marques, was rendered with fine effect.
At the close of the first part the Kev. Mr,
Oggel gave a short Easter address. He said ;
"Our Christmas exercises had reference to
Jesus when he was a little child, younger and
smaller than the childten baptized this morn
ing. When he was twelve years of age he was
in the temple and about his Fathet's business.
Kor the next eighteen yean we know nothing
of Jesus, except that he was obedient to hit
parents. In this he should be youi model.
Then follow the three yean of his noble, public
life. It it not necessary to repeal the story of
his tuffcrings, which )ou have yourselves so
beautifully recited this evening- In the city
which was my former home, boys came to
Sunday-School with new clothes on Easter
day, and ladies were arrayed in new bonnets
and fincgannents. llutif theoutwardcclcbration
of Easter is Ihe main thing, it it not worth while
for the ladies to spend to much time and labor
In adorning the house of God. Easter should
remind us, that the Lord Jesut Chritl it not
only risen from the dead, but that he desires to
live in the heart of each one of us. The
object of the officers ami teachers of the
Sunday.School is that the Lord Jesut
Christ may live in every scholar
the hope of glory. The precepts of Confucius

boast of a Savior who laid down hit life and
rose from Ihe dead to give ev erlastiug life to
those of all nations. The Resurrection of Christ
give assurance 01 lile evermore, vvercvttn
the divine arrangement of meeting again in
that better laud where the broken links shall
be re-united. Let us look hopefully forward lo
that Consummation. God bless )ou all."
The closing pail of the exercises was the
illumination of the floial Cross by a number of
boys and girls. Coming in turn upon the
platform, each recitesl a verse and then placed
a golden letter on the cross, thu constructing
Ihe inscription, "He It Risen." Then standing
around the cross, they tang "Hallelujah, He

of the morning, the solemn quietude of the

a "burst of divine harmony," the grandeur of

The story of the first I'.ister, of the resurrec

tion, were drawn from this beautiful text
which contains in three lines the Christians'
shout of victory echoed from the tomb. 'Like
a costly picture set in a rich frame,' said the
minis'er, Ms this divine religion of God. Out
taster service is but a beautiful frame in
which wc hate placed Christ to bring out in
clear perspective the redemption of man. Hut
confuse not the outward form of religion with
the divine promises of Christ, or the church
service with the resurrection of the Lord of
Glory. Although wc cannot know the infinite
yet the sphere of our belief exceeds that of our
knowledge, and we can belies c in the resur
rection of Christ without being able lo account
for it with out finite reason. The truth of
the resurrection was not taught In the Ilible
alone ; by Ihe analogy of nature beginning with
man at his second step in life life and Its
complement of death ; the present, the here-
liter; the revelation of God to man through
consciousness; the personal identity 01 man
throughout his earthly period of existence,
all these prefigure the future and give us hope
of Immortality through the resurrection.'
At the evening praise-service the church was
again crowded and the choir under the direc
tion of I'rofcssor Yyrndley so rendered the
musical programme, with the assistance of the
congregation, tfiat it became one of the fea
tures of the evening. '
Rev. Mr. Crutan continued the subject of
Resurrection and brought out in argument
those facts which cluster around the fust Easter
and 'become inexplicable unless the resunecllon
of our Lord was an actual fact which really oc
curred at the time history places it.' 'Ihe
changes which took place in the moral and
spiritual nature of the disciples of Christ anil
made them uncompromising -champions for

ner. The chapel "was most handsomely dc
cotated. The pulpit was coveted with white
floss ers stcphanotis, white roses and maiden's
hair; red roses and vari-colorcd flow crs crossed
and recrossed the church; on the altar was a
large cross of white flowers; and the font near
the entrance w aj w rcathed ssith blossoms and
greenery. Man) communicants attended the
early service and by cles en o'clock the chapel
was filled to the doors. The "sceptre and
the spindle" worshiped side by side. At the
first service Rev. Mr. Mackintosh preached on
the resurrection, and at eleven o'clock after
prayers, which were intoned by Uev. Mr.
Mackintosh and Rev. Mr. Wallace, a short
but appropriate sermon was delivered by the
Uishop. The chants and Easter hymns were
sung with fine effect, and the surpliced choir
deserves especial mention. In the afternoon
the Rev. G.-U. Simeon conducted a service
for the children after which the even-song was
sung in the Hawaiian. In the evening the
Rev. George Wallace preached on The Resur
