It has always leen so. It may continue
always to be so. Hut it is bad in theory,
worse in practice and worst in its ef

with a voice as well as wings, and ex
changes his notes of wit for notes of
invitation. He may dance well, talk
wellj sing well and be a gentleman. He
may do all three no: less w ell and be
an unscrupulous blackguard.
We admit the justice of bclicv ing no
man a knave until he is proven one.
But we also believe in the policy that
nukes the entree to society depend on
far more substantial considerations than
now obtain. Honolulu is a moral
community on the surface. The more
flagrant vices are restrained, kept out
of sight. Some people say doubtless
with perfect sincerity that society has
no right to demand more. We disagree
with those jvcople. W"e hold that our
society ought to be so constituted that
those who lead decent, cleanly lives
should have opportunity for associating
with those who do.
Of course there is an objection to
this-. How are we to reform the out
cast unlcs by personal appeal, and by
throwing around them the kindly and
reformatory influences of private life ?
We think the moss wholesome influence
upon the sort of men we mean will be
"the cold shoulder. Men know- very
well what they are doing when they
keep depraved company, drink them
selves drunk and gamble. If they may
do so with comparative impunity, if
there are hospitable doors open to re
ceive them all the same, if matrons
speak of their acts as wild oar sowing,
if maidens do not shrink from their at
tentions, if fathers do not frown and if
big brothers merely reflect that they
have been or arc in the same boat, it can
not be long before Honolulu's white
society-must suffer what society is suf
fering the world over digracc, anguish
We say this in no sensational spirit.

bad goietnment that has obtained

equally obvious that .1 better govern

The task of planning this camaign
is by no means an easy one. The
sooner it is begun the better. We,
who have no votes, may have ideas or
money; and votes, ideas and money
arc necessary to carry a reform election.
The Imposition is already in the field.
Mr. Sprcckels' Advertiser has been
nursed into new life and is deceiving
the feeble-minded by a show of vigor
and a brassy assumption of indepen
dence. Liquor licenses have been
forced upon protesting districts, and'
tools of the monopoly and the govern
ment arc to run them. Money is
being and will be spent to prolong the
official lives of Gibson, Neumann,
Gulick, Kapena and Walker. Money
must be spent to protect the people
ftom further spoliation.

It is natural that Mr. Sprcckels'
paper should be anxious to make out a
case for Mr. Sprcckels. But that great
journal "great" because Mr. Sprcck
els editor assures us that it is great
mistakes the temper of this community
if it thinks a bank may be opened here
and secure patronage by the v ery easy
hut very unbusinesslike method of
flinging mud at a business rival.
All the fools are not dead yet, but
fewer of them live in the Hawaiian
kingdom than Mr. Sprcckels' Adver
tiser eems to think. Very few ersons
are deceived by any of the twisted
truths or half truths or untruths which
it is the proud duty of Mr. Spreckels'
paper to circulate.
Kvery one who reads the Press and
there are few intelligent Caucasians on
the islands so benighted as not to read
it; every one who reads the Bulletin
and all Honolulu reads the Bulletin;
all those readers and many of the few
who read only Mr. Spreckels' xdvcr
tiscr and the Police Gazette, know- that
Mr. Spreckels' aier is owned by Mr.
Spreckels. That fact is enough. The
game is "given away."
Knowing this truth and obviously
smarting under the contempt that
naturally' follows it Mr. Spreckels'
paper seeks to "cross the scent" by
mounting the baby act on an easily
refuted lie, and swearing the dummy is
a logical fact.
Mr. Spreckels' organ pleads the
baby act substantially as follows : "Now
it's real mean of you fellows to attack
us for defending Mr. Sprcckels when
we don't attack you for defending Mr.
Bishop." And the easily refuted false
hood on which this dummy is pede
stalled is the insinuated inference that
the Press and the Bulletin are owned
by Bishop's Bank. It would beunneccs
sary to defend the circumstance if it
were an accepted fact. Either of the
newspaper and printing properties "men
tioned is a paying one, and Mr. Bishop
or any other capitalist might go a long
way without finding a better investment.
But it happens that neither Mr. Bishop
nor any other capitalist controls either
the Press or the Bulletin. Each paper
bat defended the old bank from unjust
attack and subjected the new bank to
just criticism, in the exercise of an un
doubted public duty, and both have
received the only reward they sought
the increased patronage vshich an
honorable course secured to them.
M r. Bishop's bank is no more above
criticuu. than any other public institu
tion. It would be exposed by this
journal instantly if it attempted any
such silly mohsscs-to catch-flics expe
dient as the deposit of government
bonds with John Kapcru as security
for money loaned it. We should
promptly expose the game as puerile.

The Commercial Herald sums up the situa

sing Turkey fcr pivment of the war indemnity
that tiill remains unsettled. I low-far Kusvia
intends to press cannot be told ; but we should
not be surprised, from the turn of recent events,
if she pushed Turkey to the wall. She is after
both Constantinople and Herat, If Turkey
does not pay, some of her territory in Asia
may be seized, and then, in the event of viar,
there is l'ttle doubt that the Muscoviijtes
would rets on tojcru&alem on the one hand
and to Comtantinople on the other. Turkey
cannot obtain the money needed without bor
rowing from English bondholders, who would
probably demand a guarantee frum the English
Government, This gov ernment in turn, would,
at the price of this guarantee, requite tome
cession of territory, or military occupation
equivalent to it. To this Russia would doubt
les object ; and'lrom whatever point of view
we may look at it, there is the prospect of
trouble. It now looks as if Russia was trying
to create trouble with England. The memory
of the humiliation inflicted during the Crimean
war, and again at the close of the Kusso-Turk-ish
war, when England stopped Ihe great
northern power on her advance to Constanti
nople, still rankles in the national memory,
and the feeling of revenge is probably upper
most. Then the path of ambition lies in the
same direction and influenced by ambition and
the desire of revenge there is no bounds to
what a nation may do. Unless, -therefore, Ihe
tendencies of England are more peaceful than
has been their wont, here is another chanc:
for a row of gigantic dimensions. Pending il
we might expect the tame fluctuations in stocks
and wheat that have recently troubled specu
lators in these commodities."

discounting. He II evidently a tericulturitt,
and would be a most valuable aid to beginners,
if he will not commence wjth being prejudiced
In any way.
At rcgardi the treet, Mr, Maiquct it wrong
la Hating that "the leaves of a mulberry tree
cannot be depended on In lett than from 9 to
10 years growth." I claim, what Is welt
known here, that "the leaves of anyofihe
varieties of Ihe mulberry will produce salable
silk In their third and fourth yean." i It
light in saying that "the young tiees will be
Injured by JtHitdiug them of their leaves,'
This wholesale stripping would Injure "eld
trees," and should never be practised.
It is 001 tupprvwd that the silk-raiser, hat
trees to supply the "exact amount or quantity"
of leaves to furnish a ceiialn quantity of silk,
thi t compelling him to Injure the tree by com-
p'ctcly snipping orflhelcaves.bul.thtl the Uets
are sufficient In number to take 01T enough
foliage to feed the wocrjit raised, and yet not
caiut aa Injury to them. And hue It where
Otf Otttjja) ottnge hfdgew come In play, where
ot wUH wt auitxiry It waict.
With a plentiful tupply nf these tmlgfi, at
are us Ik found all IIhimicjIi our Western Slatct,
il has been found that the tilk wnrnit fed for
four weeks on the leaves nf the Osage mange,
and balance of lime, till Ihe spinning period,
nn Ihe leaves of the miillrty, produce an ex
cellent quality of silk. It nut be irmein.
bcird, Imsvever, that the first feeding until be
nn the Otage, nnd the last feeding on tht
niiillxny. Thlt title niitti nevtt l4 revcite-l.
Silk worms, fed first nn mulberry, and tram
fened from II lo Osage, will not thrive while,
nn the eonltaty, If fed (itvt oil Osage, and then
on tniilbfiiy, they thrive well, I 1I.1 nAt ailvltr
thlt plan wheie imilbnty It plenty, but In
catet whete the latter It scarce. Thn lllk pro
duced nn the Osage lenyct alone sells lor it
much at thai produced on Ihe tniillietty, "llitt
natural food of the alike wnitrt," thrre being
nlijectlotit to the lliotni of the Osage (which
will disappear In a season or two, with pinner
pinning and utilisation), ami because the trr
initial Icavrs, becoming succulent nr milky
Just nlxiitt the tppinnlng lime fot the worms,
Induce disease if fed lo Ihem, 'I'll Is taller,
observe, It avoided by fri-dlng Ihe leaves to
the svornit only for Ihe first four weeks,
Peihapt the Osage feeding It new lo Mr,
Maiquet, I cannot pretend to enler Into any
nigiiiiient with those leslsllnt on your Itlimlt,
Ihcy iindettlandltig the climate, lempernliiie,
soil, etc,, which 1 do not. Hut Mr, Marques
being a prscllcal tcriciilturisl, and bring theie,
hat a grand opportunity In prove whether lllk
culltiie call be made a success on the Island! or
I am M an advocate of the "old ttyle"rulei
for pmpagitlng the mullieiry tree for tllk food,
because I think them unnecessary, I do nol
believe In inch severe "cutting down" enr
after year, but advocate cutting sufficiently to
Impait vigor In the treet, the losver branches
In putlcitlar, Feeding to the wormt at we
do, by using the leavet "on twig and branch,"
cut from the trees Judiciously, not only benefit
the warm, bul the pruning, consequent upon
inch feeding, will be found lo benefit the trees
and be nilficlenl "cutting down" to Improve
them, while utilizing them from the 2nd or 3rd
Mr, Marques speaks truly as to Ihe great
fruit producer, the Russian, being the least
profitable inulbcnv tree for silk raising, yet the
leaves are not "100 coarse" to produce good
silk. The white mulberry will be the best lo
commence with, and If desired the Improved
nnd grafted varieties may be got aflersvardt.
We advocate the Russian variety here, because
in sonic sections our winters are very tevere,
and that tree it very hardy. Thts last winter
In Wisconsin where a nursery man had the
young Ruttian mulberry trees planted out,
twice the temperature wat at 40 below xero,
anil the only injury done to the tree! was a
(lllle "nipping with frost" of tome of the lip
endt of the branches, not injuring the trees.
The mulberry silk worm (llontbyx Mori) is
the only one in this country producing maikct
nble silk, and I believe the experimenting with
other tpecies, in your country, would only end
as It did heie, in waste of time and failure.
Still peril sps it might be worth a trtal,
