SATURDAY. SEPTEMBER 25.
The communication signed by the Superinten
dent of Water Works, and which appears else
where in to-day'a paper, requires a few words
of comment. We shall be brief, because we
propose to have no controversy with the official
named. His age, bis bodily infirmities, and his
well-known peculiarities of etyle and tempera
ment, all forbid it. Neither do we intend to
afford amusement or occupation to any one who
would Tarry on a war of words from behind his
Our article of last week on the water works
and their management had all the well-known
marks of an editorial utterance ; but the writer
of the letter to which we now refer pretends to
be, (and perhaps is) ignorant of the commonest
rutea of journalism, and intimates a doubt as to
whether it was editorial or not.
It is stated in the letter' signed by the Super
intendent, that we assume that the consumption
of water in the city is the same now as fifteen
years ago. .Nothing was said by us on that
point. Bat we are aware (and tlie writer ap
parently is not) that whereas one spring sufficed
for several years after the works -were completed,
there are now three in use, all belonging to gov
ernment, and two of them in the rear of the
premises occupied by the Minister of Finance.
Theise are all connected not py a five inch pipe
. . -
alone, as is asserted but by live, eight and -
twelve inch nines. wiUi the reservoir. The first j
e f.ring, we have stated, is situated a few yards
above the reservoir, and the other two are possi
bly a quarter of a wile above, and near the Ka
pena talk- So far from it being " a fallacy " j
that the use of the water from the cow-pasture
might be frequently avoided, it is a well-known
fact that for days together while the ditch water,
in addition to . that from the springs, lias been
ponring in at one side of the reservoir, the sur
plus has been running off from the waste pipe at
the opposite eide.
As to the silt-traps- we are ingenuously told
that the employees at the water ofBce "alone are
cognizant of the fact that the traps and gates are
" .. ff
regularly opened one at least every montn, &c. .
It is undoubtedly true that an employee of that '
a- . . , TTsfcn nf the silt-trans be '
office knows ot the existence or the silt-trap, nc
havicg been employed in laying the pipes; out.
that tlie knowledge extended beyond him, o? that '

of the subject on which be undertakes to treat.
On the whole, we find nothing in the letter to ( trustworthy information that a cuange ia Uueiy to
ronvinoe us ol error in the article or last week; take ,-a.ce in the poliii.-s t.f the Right Centre, and
(diuiiiw thit U is due to the wishes or the Orlean princes.

i ROM all that we can gather, it would appear
that the immediate rattrj- or the suspension or
the Uank or fabrornia was the scarcity of coin
on the C.jat at the time. Since Januarv last
it is stated that more than twenty millions in
Coin bad been sent East ; about four millions
bad been sent into the interior to pay for the
purchase and moving of crops ; and several mil
lions were stored up in reserve, or which the new
and powerful hanking House of Flood and O'Brien
(wh.) by the sudden enhancement in value or
their mines have become immensely wealthy)
admitted to having two millions. When heavy
bouses like that hoard eoin, or course others
must d. the same in order to save themselves
from a sudden emergency. The Bank of Cal
ifornia, witL two millions in its vaults, was no
doubt thought to be safe. But with thirteen !
millions of deposit and with enemies able to
concentrate the press (two papers were untiring
in their efforts to destroy the credit or the Bank)
it was impossible to resist the torrent. A heavy
blow was given to the prosperity or the State;,
but the blow will be only transitory, fr its mines
and its grainfields are va6t resources.
When the last Legislature provided by law
mat alter a certain date the traffic in opium
should cease, honorable members and probably
many others felt that a good work bad been
dine. Cut it happened, wliether purposely or
otliprwiae, that there was a large Ptoek of the
drug mi hand in the country, which was sold off,
or somehow diripoa.nl of, just before the law went
into effect, f that now, after the lapse of two
months, opium uers have not suffered from any
diminution or their .usual supplies. And we
are informed, upon what is reasonably good au
thority, that the consumption is going on as
before, and in fact increasing, among the natives,
who have even letter facilities than ever for pro
curing the drug. If a chinaman is found in pos
session of opium and questioned as to where lie
got it, the ready answer is that is some of tle
old Etock,. bought just before the law went into
effect. This fame " old 6tock " will prove to be
like the widow's cruise of oil it will never I
exhausted ; and to what extent it may fie replen
ished by smuggling, now that there are no li
censed dealers to watch the business, is mere
matter f ir conjecture. Thim far, it would seem
that our recent legislation for the suppression of
the use of opium has proved abortive.

j experience of shipmasters has established the fact
that any and every requisite for repairing a ship
Can be obtained here as promptly, satisfactorily,
and economically as in any port in the world.
The work of our shipwrights (and we may add,
of our sailmakers) has in times past established a
reputation for faithfulness and durability that is
world-wide. For any vessel traversing this ocean
and finding herself under the necessity of making
a port, when at almost any point eastward of ISO"
west longitude and between 40 north and 20
south latitude, the prevailing winds are such and
our position so central, that it is easier to make
these Islands than any other point, excepting
perhaps Tahiti, when in south latitude. There,
however, the expense connected with repairs and
supplies has been eo high as to deter ships, that
have unfortunately been compelled to go there,
from ever making a second call.
A striking instance is related in late San Fran
cisco papers of the disastrous consequences to the
lives of a 6hip"e company which resulted from the
master's failing to bear up for these Islands in an
emergency. On the 17th of last month, the

passage of one hundred and ninety-two days from'
Liverpool. Out of a crew of thirty-six men,

there were but four fit for duty wlien the ship
reached port, and twelve had died of scurvy at
sea. On her arrival, an inquiry was had at the
British Consulate as to the causes of the terrible
mortality on board. The Captain was much
blamed, because when two-thirds of his crew
were disabled, oa the 10th of July, he did not
run down to Honolulu, which be might have
reached iu ten days, whereas it was thirty-eight
days from the date mentioned before he reached
San Francisco. The Captain's response was that
he " was counting on the winds and weather to
make San Francisco, and never for one moment
thought of putting into any other port." The
San Francisco Commercial Herald characterized
it as " a horrid voyage, and entirely without
excuse." Had the master used good judgment

To (fie BUI or of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser:
Sie The last number of your paper contains an
article apparently editorial, on the subject of the
j " Water Supply " which so abounds in inaccuracies.
j as to render a concise review of it indisDensahle
j The autlior of that article contends that the whole
j supply of the city jind suburbs can at the present
day be furnished by the spring, which, he says, ia
only a few yards above the reservoir its real posi
tion being within the grounds occupied by Ihe Min
ister of Finance; and certainly more than a quarter
of a mile above the reservoir. So much for the ac
curacy of his knowledge of the matter on which he
assumes to instruct others. He says that the plenti
ful deposit of soil and sediment that we find in our
water containers every day
might be avoided by using only the water from the
spring. I propose to demonstrate the fallacy of this
position. The author seems to assume that the con
dition and circumstances of the water demand and
supply, remain quite unchanged since the completion
of the reservoir fifteen years ago, and that because
as he asserts that stream alone sufficed to supply
the entire demand for two years, (but which others
deny) that therefore it remains to this day equally
adequate for that service manifestly quite uncon-;
sciotft of the great extent to which the late Super
intendent spread and extended the water supply in
every direction around the city and suburbs which
of eourse necessitates a greatly increased amount of
water to be constantly supplied. When the writer
of that article insists in the face of that important
fact that that supply can still be furnished by the
spring alone, he must be as completely unaware of
its size and capacity, as I have proved him to be of
its real position. The largest amount of water ever
supplied by that spring is, and has been conveyed
to the reservoir in a five inch pipe ! of course it can
only supply a fraction of the whole amount now
constantly required, and in the emergency of such
dry seasons as have frequently visited this locality,
and will in all probability renew their unwelotne
visits, I am apprehensive that the combined sup
ply of both the spring, and Kapena stream will
prove barely if at all adequate to the demand. It is
insinuated in that article for it does not amount to
an open manly assertion that the silt traps and
gates on the main pipe if indeed the officers in
charge are aware of their existence have been and
are entirely overlooked by them, and that for the
whole period of fifteen years that has elapsed since
the work was completed, no one remembers of an
instance when the "silt traps " have been drawn off
or the pipes rinsed out through the end gates; and
the only duty performed by the Seperintendents
being the (not quite trivial) one of collecting the
water rates. If that writer had been imbued with
a little more spirit of fair play he could readily have
learned from the employees at the water office, who
alone are cognizant of the fact, what the traps and
gates arc regularly opened once at least in every
month, and the water allowed to flow through them
freely until quite clear of pollution.
That the water at Kapeca which flows into the
reservoir is and must be more or less polluted so
long as it runs through an open drain in a cattle
pasture cannot be denied, nor can that nuisance be
abated until some effective measures are taken by
those who have the power to do so, to prevent or
remedy it. Most assuredly the Superintendent is
powerless to furnish any remedy, and it is unjust
and nnfair to impeach him for what is manifestly
beyond his control. Yours Obediently,
Superintendent of Honolulu Water Works.
