SAT CRD AY. APRIL 17.
A s..ewu.T pronounced article on the uoject
of ihm decline cf tl.e Hawaiian race r pear? in
the Gaztfte of ttiit week, wherein the view is
emphaticallj ei pressed that the great preponder
ating caue cf the diminution of the numbers of
the people is ' the general sexual license that
preTails." And the result of this.is declared t
le " a universal propagation of syphilis," of
which "multitudes die of the immediate dieae."
ami ' the re-t are enfeebled and with.inipaired
Constitutions su ecu tub to lung dienw.-f Jand other
maladies." This is a very sweeping declaration
and presents a sad picture of the moral and
physical condition of the Hawaiian people. If
the statement and the picture were true andfiir,
the j would afford a humiliating comment upon
over Cftj years of Christian iaipionary teaching,
preaching and example upon this nation. But a
lengthy and somewiat familiar acquaintance with
the Hawaiian race warrants qs in saving that the
statement is untrue and the picture eadly over
drawn and overcolored.
It is a gross exaggeration based upon mere as
sertion, and a mischievous libel, to declare that
sexual licence prevails among this pople, in the
eene conveyed by the words used. It is easy
enough, when the wish is father to the thought,
to make thee wholesale charges, but it will be
far from easy to substantiate them. It is quite
true that the standard as to morals and outside
respectability among the ignorant poor of this
people is lower than among the came class in the
enlightened nations of Eurore and America ; and
under all the circumstances of the recent emerg
ence of the former from barbarism and ancient
feudal restraint, and of their intercourse with
contaminating visitors from those same enlight
ened countries it would indeed bo strange if it
were otherwise. But so far from it being true
that there is a " prevailing sexual license "
among all the people an expression which bears
the construction that Hawaii is a modern Sodom,
where female virtue is almost unknown we as
sert without the fear of contradiction, that the
pure native race can show a goodly proportion of
christian families, wherein female virtue and
chastity are prized and honored, and are some
thing more than a mere name. The facts are
within the reach of even the writer of the article
under review if, indeed, it will serve his purpose
to seek for them. If he is an unprejudiced as well
as a pure minded j-crson, we assure him, from
personal experience, that be may travel alone
from one end of the Islands to the other without
discovering the prevalence of that sexual li
cense " with the guilt and disgrace of which lie
o recklessly charges the whole nation. To the
prurient and libidinous indeed, all things are un
clean, and the presence of an angel even would
suggest impure thoughts in eucb a mind. But
evil to him who evil thinks.
Again, it is true that the seeds of a fearful
disease the curse of the human race from early
antiquity were sown among the Hawaiiana at
first by the strangers whom they bo generously and
hospitably entertained, the discoverers and sub
sequent voyagers, and to a considerable extent
the disease in its secondary and tertiary forms is
spread and diffused io the blood of the people.
Precisely as the intelligent observer may see the
evidences of the same blood taint io many a
high-toned " foreigner. But it is not true, as
declared by the Gazette's writer, that syphilis is
universally propagated among the Hawaiians, nor
that at the present day " multitudes die of the
immediate disease." If, instead of thus giving
free rein to his heated imagination the writer had
made inquiries of tbo medical men in the country
as to the real facts, he would have learned that
there are at the present time far fewer cases met
with here of ' tbe immediate disease " than id
former years. And he might also have learned
that tbe advanced medical science of to-day is
able successfully ti combat this dreadful disease,
against which the ancient medicos were compara
Infanticide is casually mentioned as having
been one of the causes of tbe diminution of the
people " during tbe life time of tbe first Kame
hameba." But it is not stated further, as might
bave been with truth and pertinency, tbat tbe
enforcement since that time of the penal laws
against illicit sexual intercourse, so construed as
to rigorously punish tbe woman found with child
outside of matrimony, had served to largely keep
up the practice of child murder and foeticide,
until a comparatively recent period, when the
law was repealed or modified.
There is also another among the many causes
of the diminution of this people, which has been
overlooked by most writers who have undertaken
to discuss the subject, and for the obvious rea
son that tl.eir knowledge of tbe actual life oi the
Hawaiians is merely superficial. We allude to
the facts that, with the introduction of new and
strange diseases, together with changed conditions
of living and diet ; the disappearance of the
ancient Kahuna or dctor with his herb-cures ;
the little or no knowledge existing among the
people of hygiene or sanitary rults ; it is under
these circumstances that multitudes of those who
are attacked with perfectly curable ailments, es
pecially among the ignorant poor, actually die
from the lack of proper care and nursing simply
this and nothing more. A good deal has been
done in this regard of late years in Honolulu by
a society of benevolent native ladies known as tbe
Hoola Lahui ;" but there is an ample field for
noble work throughout the nation for a consider
able force of thos true christian heroines, the
Sisters of Charity.
And there is still auother cause underlying the
decadence of tbe Hawaiians, which, though un
recognized by theso who have not been familiar
witbtbe history of tha race, is yet a potent one.
It is the abolition of the feudal system and the
hasty substitution of free government, free suf
frage and the gift of" land ownership. This
theory may sound strangely to some, but it is a
true one in the case of the Hawaiians. We may
revert to this subject more fully, when our space
A work in the Hawaiiao language on Sanitary
Instruction is now in the press and will shortly
be issued. It has been written and compiled by
tbe Hon. W. M. Gibson, who was chairman of a
Special Committee of the last Legislature, ap
pointed lor the purpose. It is confidently ex
pected that the work will prove useful io direct
ing attention to tbe importance of regarding the
laws of health, and also be of value in dispelling
much of the prevailing ignorance as to the proper
care and management of tbe eick.

I'olyiK-i-i i. c uiipriing the larjte and populous
t'roiip know ti as lie Salomon Island and the New
Hb:i.l- I: is tstimated that these two groups
coct iin a poptilttion of from two to three hun-lr-.l
tho:i-a:id. From thence is derived the mot of
tti laj .r mployed on the plantations of Fiji,
Qtieen-l.u.d and Samoa, and the people. doubtle
in con-.-qii.-nce of the fair treatment thej bave re
ceived (tb business being closely supervised by
f;overnrn.-nt) are represented as all more or less
eager t emigrate. The inhabitants of both groups,
and more esp. cially those of the Solomon Islands,
are a robust und strong race, (the formation of the
country bein high land) both men and women
are iQJj-trii in and tractable, and apt to learn
quickly. The planters who have tried both these
l w pif n-l those lrom the low coral islands like
the pepl ,,f Micronesia tbat have recently been
brought l.ere very decidedly give the preference
to the former, for the reasons that they are more
mtTi-i ai.d nctive, and suffer less from change of
habits end diet than the latter.
The NVw Hebrides lie between lat. 13.36 is.,
long. 1C0.4-J E.. acd lat 20.15 S., long. 170.11 E.
Tin-re aie twenty-three principal Islands, but the
jrr'-up contains over one hundred, and occupies an
area 419 iniU-s North and South by 211 miles East
and West. The inhabitant are represented by
our informant a gentleman who has frequently
vi.-ited the islands of both this and the Solomon
group during the pa.t ten years to be simply de
based heathen and parages. Cannibalism still ez-i-u
among them. They are treacherous in the ex
treme, and those who venture to their shores to
trade must g well armed. And yet. strange as it
ni:ty s. em, we are told that after these same sav
age get on board ship their manner, and in fact
t'jeir whole nature seems to undergo a complete
chanire. They are willing and active and will
readily do anything they are required to do show
thi-m whit is wanted and tbey are happy to obey.
And the united testimony of the planters who have
employed them for years is in effect the same as to
their industry and tractableness.
The Solomon group, which is said to be the lar
gest in the I'aciQc, lies a few degrees to the North
aud West of the New Hebrides. Like the inhabi
tant. of the I itler group, they are a branch of the
I'upuaa race, with a mixture of the Malayo-I'oly-nesian.
Both men and women are said to be even
stronger anil more robust than those of the New
Heb.t. !. The men are healthy, coarse looking
1 fellows and the women are good looking, with oc
casionally a really handsome one. Thepeopleare
chtracieriz.-d as industrious, and easily managed,
and quite ready to emigrate. These islands ex
tend about 496 miles North and South by 4G4 miles
Kait and Went, and sustain a large population.
From all tbat we bave been able to gather from
authentic sources, we are inclined to believe that
the two groups herein mentioned will afford a
good field from which to obtain a supply not only
of labor, but of men and women that by coming
under the influence of our civilization will amal
gamate with and become a part of the Hawaiian
nation. The women of the Solomon group in par
ticular, who bave married in Fiji, are said to make
good wives and become the mothers of numerous

takes occasion to denounce him as a common drunk
ard, notorious as a frequenter of Chinese establish
ments where gin is known to be illicitly sold; and
lying there drunk for day together. In the name
of tbe Christian religion, of which Mr. Bond is a
preacher, and for the sake of common decency and
public morality, a plea is then made against the
present order oftbirjgs pertaining to the excutive
here, held as dependent upon tbe continuance in
office of the present incumbent.
During a residence of one year in the district, ex
cepting from the peu of Mr. Bond, I have neither
heard nor read, of anything in the conduct of tbe
Sheriff tbat would substantiate tbe declaration re
ferred to. I have been in a position during my re
sidence here to make it probable tbat if the facts in
regard to theSherifl s drunken habits, as asserted
were true, I should before bave heard of tbeTi. But,
it is scarcely more probable tbat a Gospel preacher,
tbe best part of whose life has been ostensibly de
voted to the advancement of Christianity among a
benighted people, should willfully libel the character
of an inoccent person, than tbat with the best of
opportunities for obtaining information, I should
still be in error.
Tbe issue involved is a grave one, e. i., either that
tbe Government is criminally neglectful in sustain
ing in office an individual whose conduct and exam
ple ate conducive to the encouragement of crime: or,
tbat a Gospel Minister, well known throughout the
Islands, and whose life and conduct have been the
subject of published encomiums, has been guilty of
The gravity of such issues should not fail in a
Government, not literally dead, to call forth a thor
ough and impartial inquiry by a competent Commis
sion into tbe facts of the case, as, to know the truth
is due to tbe community. Fiat juilicia ruat calum.
