"J ENGINEER, CORTHACTQRS AND
The News is pleased to observe t.bat one newspaper, at least ,
the Star, has come round at last to the idea strongly urged at the
last election bv the News, of disregarding party lines in the
selection of men to organise a form of municipal government for
the territory of Hawaii. But unfortunately such a proposition
now is inerelv a last year's bird's-nest. The Home Rulers have
learned their strength, aud will not forget. Many brilliant and
honorable Hawaiians allowed themselves to bo led "over the pali'
in the wake of the republican or democratic parties last fall, only
to realize afterwards that the bulk of the legislative offices, were
filled with ignorant and unworthy Jtlawauuus. Will they Keep on
committing political kari-kari at the suggestion of party leaders?
Thev will be fools if they do. Of course there will have to be a
combination effected in ordcr to elect the right men, but the day
of "no mrtv has now mssea. ana tno oast men oi tne is'ancis
must rally under the banner of the majority party, or get the same
dose ot the next election which they got at the last.
Latest advices from the Congress of Bishops in San Fran
cisco seem to indicate that Bishop Willis himself was an import
ant factor in determining the status to be occupied by the diocese
of the Hawaiian Islands, with reference to the American Episcopal
Church. Under the circumstances, it was perhaps best that
Bishop Willis could see his way to resign, for Ihe reason that hi
retention as bishop of this diocese would have tended to widen the
breach here. It would be equally fatal to the interests of tlie
Church here to have any other resident of the Island named as
bishop of tho diocese. The only way to secure perfect harmony
will be tho election of a bishop from tho mainland, if the canons of
the House of Bishops permit it. At any rate, the wrangle has
continued long enough, and it is the devout wish of tho outsiders
that tho breach in the Anglican Church, or rather now the Epis
copal Church ou the Islands should be spocdily and pvrnauently
It really seems like a joke to assert that in a war between
Russia and Japan, RXissia would suffer overwhelming defeat both
by land aud sea, yet ihe indications aro that in less than a year,
exactly that thing will happen, if Russia does not back down,
which is not likely. Corea is of course the bone of contention, and
its rapid settlement by Japanese is a sufficient cause for war
The icvensu ana ttesperato imsi6 wnicn itussia is displaying in
the construction of the trans-Siberian railway means a war im
mediately upon its completion. Japan is playing a waitiug game,
and is still nursing a sense of the wrongs which she feelsfthat the
Russians put upon her in the Port Arthur affair. When the
overgrown and brutal Russian soldiers come in contact with the
Japanese, they will encounter men every one of whom is ready to
die for a principle, and such men cannot be conquered,
The Christian ladies of Honolulu are very much distressed
over wnat tney aeem to oe an alarming increase in the use ot in
toxicating liquors, as evidenced by tho increase in the numbers of
saloons in Honolulu. There has also been a large increase in the
number of saloons and liquor houses in Wailuku within the past
two years, but it is quite true that there is now loss beastly drunk
enness than tliero was when liquor or beer could only be bought in
Wailuku by the case. Then, a man would buy a case of intoxicants,
take it to his room, invite his friends, and the orgies would ouly
cease when the last bottle was empty. Such scenes are rare now,
and as there are enough saloons, tho custom has become common

. 'Hie show business is dead in Wailuku, so dead that nothinj
less than a three ring circus with a complete menagerie including
a large band of freshly imported okapis can revive it. Last Sat
urday night a tairlj good show was given at the Skating Rink by
an enterprising young man, but it met no support from the "four
nunarea or waiiuicu. 'ihe reason for this is that some months
since the Tennessee darkies got up an entertainment iu Wailuku
Which was so utterly tame aud insipid that people aro now afraid
to venture out after night to attend any show given by local talent.
