that sacral planters liasc recently ex
pressed themselves to the writer in
term-, mimical to their agents. Much
might le said on IkiiIi sides of the con
trovery Hi" r)ctition of charges and
counter charges could do no good,
might intensify hitter feeling and per
haps would prevent that final hcltcr
understanding for which we hope. It
is our purpose to consolidate, not to
divid" We know what a hard, exacting
up-hill struggle many planters have
had. We also know how much anxiety
agents have undergone, and what grave
responsibilities they have undertaken,
in order to carry on plantations into
which they hase gone on the
very advice of planters who
were more enthusiastic than the
facts warranted. We are not prepared
to say that sonic planters have not
been extravagant and we know that in
some cases their agents have had to
pay for such extravagance ; nor arc we
prepared to deny that some agents
have taken advantage of the necessi
ties of their clients. Hut we think that
the rule has heen creditable to both
planters and agents. We think planters
generally have done their lust to make
their plantations pay. We think agents
generally have done their best to con
serve the best interests of the planters
for whom they acted. That there has
been cause for complaint on each side
is undeniable That there has been
much inisundcrstandini:, and, conse
quently, much mutual injustice, is
equall) undeniable. We think the best
cure for this unfortunate condition of
things is to he found in a more perfect
understanding between planters and
agents. This can best be brought
about by more frequent visits to the
plantations by ngcntii. One difficulty
has always been that agents have
thought the estimates made by
planters for current expenses were too
high, and have sometimes felt called
upon to cut down estimates to a point
that planters believed to be not only
unjust but ctippling. This kind of in
justice would be obviated by frequent
visits to plantations on the part of
agents, who ought tu familiarize them
selves with every term of plantation
work, including all the agricultural
methods, the milling and the transpor
tation. The agent oucht to Aurn1
whether the planters' esJltnatcs are
excessive by knowing whether too
much is asked for cultivating the area
specified, for grinding and for all the
other expenses. "If my agent would
get oftener onto the hurricane deck of
a mule and ride over the fields with
me, would see how and why I spend
so much for Humes, for clearing new
land, for manuring old land, lie wouldn't
be so apt to speak of me as 'a fellow
with a check book, whose principal crop
is weeds and needs,' " said a planter the
other day. After riding over a good
portion of another plantation the writer
came to the conclusion that the planter
was not far wrong. It is worth noting
by other agents that the most iopular
arc those who visit plantations most
often and who post themselves most
thoroughly concerning the details of

So writes an cmplojcrdf Japanese
labor. We have no hesitation in ans
wering his first query in the affirmative.
Wmo believe that both the Japanesegov-
ernment :nd its consul intend to keep
faith with the fapanese immigrants to
this kingdom, arid wc believe the Jap
anese immigrants lliemsclves clearly
understand the situation, and cordially
endorse the protective action of their
government. The second question,
" What right has he to insist on collect
ing it utiles? he deposits it in the Ha
waiian Gov, eminent Savings Hank in
the name of the laborer ?" is not so easy
tn answer. There is no "Hawaiian
Government Savings Hank "unless
Messrs. Glaus Sprockets: & Go's bank
is the II. G. S. H. And it is a moot
Kiint whether the government, in de
fatt It of its plain obligation to start the
l'ostal Savings Hank, has or has not
the right to designate Messrs. Glaus
Sprockets' V Co. as its special bank of
savings deposit. 'I he government is
clearly obligated, by the terms of the
labor contracts to which the Japanese
Government and itself arc parties, to
provide a bank of savings with govern
ment security. If the Japanese Gov
ernment is willing to accept Messrs.
Claus Sprei kels & Cos bank as such
"Hawaiian Government Savings Hank,"
we have no need to protest unless we
are prepared to prove that that bank
offers insufficient security for deposits.
We previously called attention to the
fact that the mere deposit of govern
ment bonds by the new bank of Claus
Sprcckels & Co. is not in itself the
creation for deposits. It is not author
ised by law, and could be set aside.
We have not questioned and do not
question the good faith of the new
bank in the nutter. Wc merely repeat
that the boasted deposit of government
bonds does not create -security for de
posits. As to our correspondent's
question about the deposit being in the
name of the laborer we have only to
say that we have no doubt such de
posits are made in the names of the
laborers to which 'Msv belong. :Nny
different action would be bad faith as
well as bad business of which we do
not believe the Japanese government
or its representatives here, cither guilty
or likely i be guilty.
The Young People's Christian Asso
ciation an organization of both sexes,
with Hawaiian memlierslup cluelly is
doing a valuable work among the native
race. Its influence for temperance, for
morality and for more distinctly re
ligious advancement, is said by those
who know most about it to bo consider
able. An incident brought to our
notice during the recent anniversary
week is worth repeating. A nourishing
branch of the association is located in
Waipio Valley. I-ist winter a freshet
carried away the bridge over the Waipio
stream. It was much used and
its loss was serious. The government,
being "broke," couldn't rebuild the
bridge ; so the V. 1 C. A. rebuilt it
out of the funds in their treasury. Such
practical Christianity as that deserves
recognition. We hope, however, that
the minister of the interior will sec that
the association is refunded what it so
lu reply to inquiry, we state for the
benefit of other island readers that a
few copies remain of several issues of
our letters descriptive of the various
districts of Hawaii And those wishing
to have them to null to friend, abtoad
can be furnished on application with
copio in atatuped wrappers, for i
Judye McCully is repotted by the
Hullelin as " not in favor of Chinese

The Slate Clarities Aid Association, in
scckinn to elevate the covlllion of the jmor liy
the promotion of thrift, Is engaged in a good
work, It li.ts hccoine convinced, "fter
thorough investigation, that in no wa) cin
tVl tHiriKftc 1 belter set veil than b) the es
tablishment of postal savings banks. This
conviction is based utwn knowledge derived
from personal inlercoure with the pory in all
parts of the state. I here is an imperative lie
inand for some general and thoroughly safe
form of depository for small savings ) ar.il the
csiKtience of othc! nations shows that Hi
postal savings kink sjstem meets that waul.
Hence the association has set 10 work to in
terest kindred societies and the philanthropic
generally in the furlhciance o' ttjs object.
The postal savings banks have not or ly en
couraged economy and habits of thrift among
the poor in Kngland, but they have also proved
a direct l-ncfit tn the government. In Canada,
Australia and other llrilish colonics the sys
tem has been even more successful than in the
mother country. France, Italy, Russia,
Swilieiland, Belgium, the Ncthcilands, Japan,
and other countries which have adopted this
expedient have pronounced it a great success,
II isiv method of saving which the poor can
easily understand and tuin tu account, and in
which they have confidence. Why should
tlate not In imstal savings banks in llic
United States ?- AW.' '- Trituiit.
:nd why not in Hawaii? II habits
of thrift are needed anywhere, they are
needed here. If needed at any time,
they are needed now. Hinhop & Go's
bank, Sprcckels & Co's bank, are very
good so far as they go ; but a bank of
savings with every post-offtce as a re
ceiving counter would be a continual
stimulus to the thriftily inclined, a per-
'petual object lesson in saving. Perhaps
the "by authority" columns ol Mr.
Sprcckels' paper could not be better
employed than in letting tax-payers
know why the Hawaiian l'ostal Savings
Hank was not started.
I'he arrival of Mr. A. HolTming is
timely. He comes at an hour when
the immigration of Portuguese into this
country seems at an end, and Slso at an
hour when the labor contracts of the
Portuguese already here are expiring or
about to expire; at an hour when the
Portuguese now in these islands arc
trying to make up their minds whether
to no or stay. So much matter has
already been prcqured for this issue
that adequate discussion of the subject
re-suggested by Mr. Hoffnung's arrival
must be Kst)oned. Hut we are at
liberty to state that Mr, HoiTuung has
expressed himself as keenly alive to the
danger now confronting us -the danger
that most of the Portnguese now here
will leave us, and that he is just as
keenly alive to the duly of both gov
ernment and citizens to make organized
jcftoiiiu give Portuguese a chance to
settle on either public or private lands.

The following paper was prepared and read
before the May meeting of the V. ( . T. f , by
th ptMenl, Mrs. J.M.Whitney, and h pub
lhhed at the ropiest of ierer.il of the nirmt-eri.
The hanefnl thirst for stimulants seems to
have reached all times and affected alt nations.
From the time when Noah " planted a Ine
yardrnd drank of the wine, and was drunken,"
to the present, all races have more or less
loved fnloiicantt. The Hindu chews hii betel
nut, ami the Turk his hasheesh. The Japanese
finds commit in hii saki, and the .Mlcronesian
In his tadi while opium and tobacco number
untold millions among their votaries. Hut it
is the class of drinks called alnhotit to which
we shall confine our attention to-day.
Wine, 'lie fermented juice of the grape,
seems 10 have teen the primitive intosicant of
all ancient nations. In l'gypl, the wine seems
at first not 10 have been Intosicating. As i.i
the butler's dream ' And I'haraoh's cup was
in my hand, and I took the grapes and pressed
them into I'haraoh's cup, and I gave the cup
into I'haraoh's hand." Hut an Egyptian offi
cial, wilting about the time of Moses, says :
" If lieer gels intu a man, it overcomes his
mind. Thou art like an oar starting from its
place, which becomes unmanageable In every
way. Ihou knowest that wine is an abomi
nation." Willi was an article of commerce among
the Jews, ftolonion furnishing It to Hiram,
king of Tyre, in exchange for limber. Homer
represents a priest of Apollo extolling a Thra
clan wine as " luscious, pure and worthy
the palate of the gods." It is said of Alexan
der the (ircat, that he met his death after two
days and two nights of excessive drinking.
l'liny says that " wine began to grow Into rep.
utatiou in Home, about 500 jcari after the
founding of the city." He speaks of some which
he had tasted " which was 200 vcars old, and
was as thick as honey, and rough in taste."
Coming to more modern limit, we find that
the early Spaniards were great drinkers of
wine the Anglo Saxons had their great ale
feasts and the Danes were "desperate drunk
ards." The Germans from their earliest history
have been famous for their drinking propensi
ties. " Tacitus relates that in the tedious
intervals of pence, these barbarians were ad
dicted to Immoderate drinking and gaming."
"The old Germans used a decoction of oak
bark in the preparation of beer." The culti
vation of hops for beer, cannot be traced
further back than A. D. 768. Later, " Ger
man intemperance became a by-woid among
the nation." ' The Germans led the race ol
drunkards." l-'acts, which there is not time
now to mention, show that " Germany both
of the past and of to day has been over ex
tolled as a country tree from drunkenness and
its evil effects. The German rulers are strug
gling with the great pioblem of intemperance
whose effects arc everywhere apparent."
In Kussia, the tax on brandy forms the most
important item in its revenue. No information
is allowed to be conveyed to the minds of the
people En regard to the injurious character of
brandy and kindred spirits, the government
having a targe inteiest in their manufacture.
More th.in one-thiul of the whole income of
the government is derived from brandy.
Our ancestors in tlie llrilish Isles, it is said,
learned the art of making beer from the
Isomans under Julius Cxsar, l'revious to this
tbey had used an Intoxicating drink made from
honey, called mmJ, After the Saxon inva
sion, drinking and drunkenness were grcaih
increased. Ale came to 1m: regarded as one
of the necessities of life.
- The first attempt at reformation of which wc
read, occurred in the 9th century, when the
Archbishops of Canterbury and York endea
vored to arrest the spread of drunkenness
among the clergy. Some of their laws are in
teresting, "A bishop who was drunk to
vomiting, wlnle administering the holy Sacra
ment, was condemned to fast ninety da)s, and
one who was so intoxicated as, pending the
rite, to drop the sacred elements, was required
to chant a hundred psalms a penance." A
man was to be considered drunk, "when hi
mind is quite changed, his tongue stutters, his
ees are disturbed, he has vertigo in his head,
with distension of stomach, followed by pain."
Hut these mild measures were incflectu.il,
and under the Danish and Norman invaders
new drinks were introduced, till it was said
that "the land was filled with drinks and
drunkards." During ihe reign of Kliialieth,
" drunkenness became one of the most striking
characteristics of the nation." In 1657 some
one wrote, "we w,nu to be steeped in liquoi-s,
or to be the diiy island. Wc drink as if we
were nothing but sKngcs, or had tunnels in
our mouths." There were various legislations
and other nttcmix to check the evil; but as
some one has sai), ''they all died of drunken
ness" men were many centuries in learning
that moderate drinking must fail that total
abstinence is the only hope of any people.
In thv United States, malt lirpiois, wine and
brandy, wi-rc in use in all the early colonies.
Kvcn among the pilgrim fathus, as early as
i6jj and after, wc find various indictments for
drunkenness. Io 794 the first Continental
Congicss pavscit the following resolution:
"That it be recommended to the several legis
latures of the United Colonies, immediately to
pats law s the more effectually to put a slop to
the pernicious practice of distilling, by which
the most extensive evils are likely to be de
rived, if not quickly prevented." The rcvolu
lionary war increased the evil, till all classes,
including eminently the clergy, were addicted
to excessive Indulgence. The culminating
xint in the careei of this great vice seems to
have been reached about the vcar 1S.15. I
must not delay to speak of the excess to which
the whole country had run. It was estimated
ihil the amount of liquor used annually would
net t-e less than f) )a(ons for every man,
woman and child InUirts and all in Ihe
country. "To get drunk did not much Injure
a man's tcputition or influence. Not only
ministers, but deacons, drank immoderately
without seriously compromising their posl.
tlons." At least one man in every score be
came a drunkard, and not a few women.
Thcic was probably not one tn five hundred,
who did not believe that the uc c-f Intoxicating
drinks as a beverage, was absolutely needful.
These )car were, as might be supposed, a
pel lol if great immorality. Sabbath break
ing anJ profanity were very prevalent.
InftJclil) was rau-pant, and there was
gnat coldness In the churches. A few good
men saw the evil, and tiled 10 lift up a
voice against It, but with little avail, until It
became too apiurcnt to be denied that Intern.
pcrancc was turning the nation. At length,

Against the Manufacture ol Ardent Spliits,"
Within two or three yean there was a per
ceptible improvement thinughout the country.
tn 1839, it was said that in Massachusetts
there was an actual diminution of one hall In
the s.ile of spirits, and the same In New York.
At the commencement of the vear iSjo, (in
four )ears), it was reported that "morr than
louo Societies, had lieen formed, with more
than 100,000 members, located in 24 different
states more than 50 distilleries had been
stopped--more than 400 mtrchants had re
nounced Ihe traffic, and more than 1100!
Irunlards had ceased to use the drunkard's
besides Ihe names already mentioned of
noted men who threw their influence into this
relorm, we may mention Hev. John Hcrpont,
Dr. George It. Checvcr, Father Taylor of Ihe
Itoston Itethel, Mr. V.. C. Delavan, Dr. Chas.
Jewell and many others.
Hut it was many years afler this great tem
perance revival commenced, before more was
attempted than to do away with Ihe use of ;'
tilliJ liquors. Wine, cider, beer and ale,
were not prohibited by these societies. "In
the grt-it National Convention in Philadelphia,
in May, ISJJ, Ihe principle of Mai akttintntt
fioni all infoAuafiiiif liquors vsas prnjiosctl, but
was speedily voted down," and man) of the
most conscientious temperance advocate ie
gardeil this as an extreme view, and feared
there would be a reaction It seems strange
tous, who enter into their labors and who
know tint only entire abstinence from all
forms of the evil will save men who have ever
acquired n taste for Ihe accursed stuffthat
tlieie good men should not have apprehended
the truth at once. Hut wc must remember
that they were treading new ground t Ihey were
feeling their way: and Ihey acted according to
the best lights they had.
Hut the cause made wondeiful progress.
Five years later, In 1SJ5, wr find that S.ooo
temperance societies had been formed, more
than 2,000 distilleries had been stopped, more
than 200,000 had ceased Io use any kind of in
toxicating liquors, about 2,000,000 had ceased
to use distilled liquors, 1,500,000 of whom
were members of temperance tocielies. Hut
as at the beginning of the work, the number
of drunkards reformed continued to be strange
ly out of proportion Io the other departments
of the work. Comparatively little effort had
been made in this direction, as their case was
considered almost hopeless. Hut in 1840, in
Haltimore, ,1 wondeiful work began nmong
those who were ihcmselvcs confirmed ine
briates. Six men ol this class, strangely and
suddenly determined that ihey would drink no
more, and organized themselves into a urn
perancc socictj. called tlio U'ashingloiiian
Society. In a short time this society fiuni'
hered hundreds, and in a sear, at the anniycr
airy meeting, i.eu-j men stood in a line as
Meantime the ir-o-rcnient had ipread like
wild-fire in all directions. Discarding the slow
argumentation method of the previous temper
ance revival, these men appealed to the emo
tions chiefly. These meetings were conducted
entirely by nien who were reformed drunkards,
and their great effort vsas to arouse in the
victims of intemperance a feeling of hoft. aril
to lead them to say " willf As might be
supposed, leaving out the religious element
entirely, very many found the " will" after a
time ineffectual. It is estimated that three
fourths of all those who were reformed during
the Washinglonlan movement returned again
to their old habits. Hut the remaining onc
fourth numbered 150,000, whose, reformation
was peri--unent a result which showed tint
Ihe Washinglonlan work was very fir fivm a
Immediately following this movement, the
enthusiasm of which was not very permvjcnt,
several secret societies were organized, such as
the "Sons cf Temperance," "Independent
Order of Kechabites,""Cadels of Temperance,"1
and the "Good Templars." Some of these
orders especially Ihe last named have doubt

In ihe jear 1S50, through the tireless
effoits of Hon. Neal Dow, the famous Maine
Law was enacted the chief features of which
are well known. It does away with nil license
to sell the poisonous stulT, as a beverage,
making the "common sale of liquor (as il usih
arsenic, strvchnine, etc.) a criminal offence,
punishable as such, and liquor kept for unlaw
ful sale liable to seizure and destruction," In
spite of previous doubts of many good men,
and opposition of all kinds fro'ii evil men, this
law has lcen wonderfully suscrfeful, and any
man willing to bo convinced, can prove to
himself be) ond a doubt that "J'tohiliilioH iAvs
Time will not permit me to speak of tic
various vicissitudes, both of gos and erf,
through which this great reform puscd during
(hc next twenty years. The war came the
attention of the American nation was absorlxd
by that, and necesvirily temperance agitation
was lessened, and temperance conviction was
weakened. There was much drinking in the
army, and less restraint in these respects after
the close of the war. Great numbers of
foieigners swarmed over the country, very
many of whom were Irom the lowest classes In
Euiope the alms-houses, jails and slums of
the old world. These, and much false teach
ing from eminent men, and unwise legislation,
combined to produce what threatened to be a
general rautitn, and many good men and
women stood in terror lest all the good accom
plished should be lost. Hut the cause belonged
to God, and
"To ilouU would t disloyalty,
To falls r woold b sin.
At this crisis, in December, isyj, Ihe won
derful movement known as the Womsn's Tem
perance Crusade was Inaugurated, The story
is too well known to need recapitulation here.
In the little town of Hillsborough, in Soulhtrn
Ohio, a band of Christian women mil, and
with much praer, but with little definite plan
impelled and guided by God s Spirit alone,
stilted a work, the present outcome of which,
no mortal could have foreloM, The crusade
spicad, and li, a few months Ohio and many
of the adjacent states were on file. It was no
holiday play, no sudden outburst of frenzy
which Inspired the vsomrnqf America during
lhoe months of the crusades. It was God's
pbn to arouse the women of the nation to
realize that He had a definite work for ihcm
to do, and to open to them a sense of the po.
slliilitici w ithin ami around them.
It wu soon fell that the women's movement
mumon , 11 has prujred Umpernce lessons
in the Sunday sOiuuls, anil the urganif alion of
the children into msenile temperance so
rieties 1 it has tinted the public schools, and
introduced trmperanee text books 1 it has been
felt, as a conserving force, at the polls and in
legislative halls 1 it his visited medical bodies
and secured their co-operation 1 it has
answered the pravcr test of mocking scientists,
and lifted the temperance question to a gospel
Though not ihe only active temperance or
ganization in America, this W. C. T. U. Is
Ihe one which most concerns us at present.
This society was organized In Cleveland, In
November, 1S74 the autumn following the
crusade. Mrs. Annie Wi'.tenmeyer was lor
five rxn president of the national body. For
the last five years Miss Frances 1 Willard
has been the beloved and honored president.
Though hrr eloquence and energy every state
and territory is organized for tcinpsrance
woik, and 200,000 mothers, wives and daugh
ters are enlisted in the work. Every year these
women besiege the legislatures of 'heir various
states for temperance legislation especially
for constitutional prohibition. They have
learned that back of public sentiment there
siust be righteous law Hut their aim Is higher
than this j and they will never rest till the con
stitution of the United Stales mtkes forever
the site, importation or manufacture of nil in
toxicating liquor a crime. And il will h ac

"Some of us will have passed over into ihe
other country. Whether there or here, some
lime we shall witness Ihe destruction of Ihe
liquor power. Sometime we shall see temper,
ancc taught in every public school. Some
time cycry state will have constitutional pro
hibition and our grand United Slates national
prohibition. Sometime, there will be no
starving children, no heart-broken wives, no
wretched diunkard sons or fathers, no heartless
ciucl liquor traffic. God hasten the lime 1"
My dear sisters, to this grand wotk, we, as
Christian women of Hawaii nei, are called
And this call comes not only from the reeling
drunkards whom we sec every day upon our
