Board of Health.
To the Editsr of Pacific Commercial Advertiser.
The Qaette thinks It no time to make any ado
about the action of tbe Board of Health in regard
to their management of small pox, now epidemic
among ns. It matters little what blundering
has foregone, or bow much more there may be in
store, tbe publio should submit without murmur
while those who have voices to raise, should choke
them down to the same key-note as that cf this
would be exemplar. But I need ask of none such
as be any pardja for tbe expression of my senti
meats upon any matter or public interest, and
much lesa upon ooe which perhaps never would
have become so intense bad tbe Press put in its
honest and timely protect against the offlclal negli
gence which any intelligent person could see waa
fostering a culmination such as we are now left to
bemoan. We are told by this oracle, that it is
not the people who scream and shout that are of
aa-istaace daring a shipwreck," and I would reply
that sensible people are as little likely to look to
tuose lor he'.p when tbe storm has burst and dan
ger la at hand, whose voices bave only been raised
io praise of fair weather and a well-manned ship.
Had there been but one slip in the management
of quarantine, and bad sncn a mistake, when once
discovered, been the signal for extra exertions In
averting danger, the public would bave less cause
for solicitude; but blunders Increasingly more
s-rave. and in quick succession opon the first, and
without guarantee as to their future abatement,
is a state of things well calculated to excite tbe
feelings of tho-Ms who bave any regard fer human
lire or tbeir own personal rights of protection.
Tbe Board of Heahn or their friends have little
reason to complain of panic and agitation, when
by their actions they have seemed to defy the
public aentiment,and H that might come of it
Their motto seems to have been, agricultural and
commercial Interests must be protected not, the
U7JHl of K?he'.teamer Australia was allowed
to land both freight and passengers from a known

other was tbe result. notwUbsund.og the genteel
assurances of safety, said to have influenced the
authoritiea in their action. But th.s was not
accented aa any warning, and another steamer
from the same port, soon after, was also exempted
from quarantine, whether or not tbe result again
of adv.ee from respectable sources I am not In
formed; but one resectable passenger anticipating
, the acuoo of the- Board, did come ashore to aid
them. Upon d ie deliberation (perhaps) as to the

18,2, and in 1877, d,d not spread and decimate the
population ; but these should be no precedents for
neglect of precautions either at present or io the
ruture. one supposes that the small-pox will
ever repeat tbe slaughter it committed in 1853 : but
no one supposes either that it might not bave been
so at some of these periods bad the condition of tbe
people remained tbe same. Vaccination and pre
vious infections may in a measure protect a people,
but can never justify a neglect of proper quarantine!
A few deaths are not so bad as many, but none to
record would be better still ; and dangerous experi
ments with tbe public health are not without their
effects upon public business as well. 8ays a noted
tngl.eh writer : A low degree of civilization sets a
low value upon individual human life," and that a
disregard cf it " places us upon the moral level of
TbfAe Editor of Pacific Commercial Advertiser:
SlR : A would-be passenger recently seeking to
avoid tbe inter-island arrangement called quaran
tine, stowed himself away upon tbe C. R Bishop
bound for KaoaL He bad the pleasure of a trip
there and back, and cf paving his fate both wjys as
well. A like experiment was made upon the eni.lox
of the -Likelike" last week by a well-known
resident ; but in this instance it was successful.
Perhaps it would be impertinent to ask, why T Or,
why one passenger from windward on tbe same
voeeol last week came ashore, went op town, cn
beard again, and back to Hawaii, while others who
wUhed to return were ccropt lled to remain cn board
daring the entire stay of tbe steamer io port ?
I write in no captious spirit, but because (as
Mark Twain might eay) I like to see a square deal
all around; and there has been too much of tbe
other kiod cf deI. I wonder for iostanee, wbetber
any one supposes that it would be possible for the
" Likelike to get herself into trouble with the
Board of Health?
The Board cf Heshh propose now to obviate the
difficulty in tbe way of persoos returning to their
homes or visiting on the other is'ards, by allowing
them to do so after submitting to quarantine at their
own expense for a prescribed period. Oh, con
sistency what a jewel thou art ! " The officers aod
crews of coasters are instructed to have no communi
cation with people on tbe other inlands, but such as
is actually necessary in the handling of freight and
tbe delivery of mails, for fear that infection my
thus be transmitted. Now. does any one, not quite
bereft of reason, imagine that tbe previous quaran
tine of psssengers here will prevent them from com
municating to those on shore elsewhere any in
fection which may be latent upon the vessel carrying
tbem. or render them less dsngeious mediums than
the officers and crews upon whom restrictions Lave
been placed 1
It would certainly be more sane to allow eucb as
desire to do so. to return to their respective homes
and report themselves at stated intervals to tbe
health authorities cf their diOerent districts ; this is
the way tbe Board bave been in the habit of dealing
with passengers from San Francisco, when pesti
lence has been known to exist at that port. Tbe
Board bave more than once decided this plan to be
sufficiently sate ; and if it is safe in Hot.olulu.lt
would be equally safe elsewhere, and tbe Board
couldn't make anybody but a crazy man think dif
ferently, if it held four meetings tor that purpose, and
tbey were backed by tbe Pi ivy Council and all tbe
But to be serious, is it want of honesty, want of
common sense, or cowardice, that we are to lock for
an explanation of the remarkable blundering that
has lately characterized the actions of the Board of
Health T The subject bas got to be something more
than a mere laughing matter !
To the Editor of Pacific Commercial Advertiser :
Sir It is difficult to believe, that any woman
going from any borne, even the poorest kind of a
home in this pleasant town, to tbe bleak, bare
quarantine grounds on the reef, should write short
ly after arrival in a small pox pest bouse, or say
quarantine hospital ; that she had found the dear
pleasure of a happy and comfortable home ; and
also found all that could be desired, and " more
too" Somebody interested io praising up the order
of things in that sea-girt home," must have
assisted in making up the letter, and for a
woman's letter made it rather too strong. A ponr
fellow out of tbo forecastle of a fever shi , might find
an improved home on the reef, but not a leepec aMe

MEMCBJAI. FROM PLANTERS .
To His Excellency,
H. A. P. Carteb,
Minister of the Interior, &c.
Sir : Tbe undersigned, planters, mill owners,
and residents of Kobala, Island of Hawaii, beg very
respectfully to address your Excellency on the sub
ject of the deficiency and cost of tbe labor supply of
Tbe cultivation of cane cannot be successfully
carried on without an abundant supply of cheap
labor. But an Inadequate supply at very high rates
is only obtainable by your Memorialists, who bave
to pay in many cases, wages at the rate of ona dollar
per day for common field labor, while employers in
other sugtr producing countries are able to obtain
tbe services of East Indians for a long term at the
rate of five or six dolUrs per month.
Your Excellency will perceive that the Hawaiian
employers are heavily weighted in the race of com
petition with tbose Countries, and would not be
able to bold tbeir own were it not for tbe existence
of tbe Treaty of Reciprocity wi:h tbe United States,
wbicb treaty, your Memorialists venture to remind
your Excellency, may not always continue in
Your Memorialists understand through the local
papers that for some reason, imperfectly understood,
tbe introduction of East Indians is at present im
practicable, but that it may be secured by some par
ticular action of the Government: Tbey very respect
fully request your Excellency to inform them what
obstacles are in tSe way of tbe introduction of East
Indians, and by what means, in the opinion cf your
Excellency, they are to be overcome, for your Memo
rialists believe.not only that the introduction of tbose
people would be productive of gret and permanent
benefit to tbe community, but tbat it is vital to your
Memorialists and the planting interests cf tbe

(From the Wednesday Express, February 10.)
The absurd charge is reiterated that we
seek to provoke the antagonism of races.
We publish the opinion, or complaint of a
poor native; as we will publish any person's
opinion on any lawful subject; and chal
lenge a fair criticism to say, tbat there is
anything more in this than the proper
work of a newspaper. Our purpose is not
so much to advocate any especial doctrine
or views, as it is to establish a journal of
news. Vie will publish any proper infor
mation, or any fair discussion from what
ever source, or party it may come. Send us
your criticisms, pointing out, as you appre
ciate, our errors, our mistakes, or our dan
gerous tendencies ; and they shall be cheer
fully placed before our readers. fVe print
a native paper called the " Elele," a trans
lation of the word " Express," and we also
-sf Ho lviiokoa."orthe "Independent":
two papers decidedly antagonistic in their .
views and discussion ; and yet. we feel bold
to say, that the Editor of the " Kuokoa,"
finds no obstruction, or hindrance in our
office work, or any discrimination in favor
of the paper we prefer ; and should any
party wish to insert any artiele or dis
cussion in the Express, or Elele from the
view, we will readily give
it place, and full and fair presentation. No
intelligent man in his senses, can believe
that we aim to accomplish any result, or
promote any especial end, by pandering to
the prejudices of any poor or untutored
people of any race. If you see anything you
deem hurtful in our columns, foreign or
native, send us what you regard as an anti
dote which w will publish; and then we
will h-.w the fullest kind of discussion,
and truth and rlht will'rrevall.
The work of a Board of Health, or of any
ncaun aotnonties, is likely to be at all times a
ttaDkles. task. In healthy time, people enjoy
themselves, unmindful of any credit for .anitary
precautions ; and when .'cknesa distresses, or
alarm, them, tbey must have a victim upon
whom to Tent animadrertion, and who so
appropriate as the official care taker
of tbe public health. Now this animadver
eion may be warranted when the care of
public health, is to be associated with,
and interrupted by the care of roads and bridges
and of street, and sidewalk. ; and by the pur
chase of beef, lumber and lime ; and by a variety
of other matters. A superintendent of sanitary
work, a President of a Board of Health, besides
being properly qualified for the work, should
also be one of the most disengaged men in tbe
community ; that is to eay, sufficiently free from
any official duties, or business associations to
devote his vf hole time and attention to the para
mount public duty of the care of the public
health. Such a one, so situated, could by fre
quent reports and discussions keep the public
mind satiffied in times of apprehension ; and
although no mortal man in charge of so delicate
and weighty a duty could hope to escape censure
sometimes; yet such a one as we have designated
could, better than a preocccupied official, encoun
ter difficulties, plan to meet emergencies, organize
sanitary work, stimulate and encourage tbe
benevolent, and, to a great extent, satisfy public
opinion by a continued honest endeavor.
The recent cas-, in which the right of the
Judges to cause important auction sales of land to
be made by officers of the Court, instead of
by licenced auctioneers, was upheld by Vice
Chancellor Judd, draws public attention to tbe
law relating to auctioneers which forms part of
our code. Tbe exorbitant license fee, and per
centage on all sales, which are inflicted on this
particular class of business are probably unique
in tbeir way. It is not likely tbat there is io the
world any other business community of white men
who would have submitted to tbem so long, as tbe
people ot Honolulu have. One of tbe most striking
points of the law to the mind of a business man.
accustomed to the ways of .other lands, is the en
lurced maximum of commission fire per cent. Ia
nther countries, where unrestricted competition
keeps auctioneers charges down to tbe lowest point
no auctioneer wbo is -'worth his salt," will take
sties of furniture, books or other small chattels for
so small a crnimisinn as five per crnt., and it is
doubly unreaxonable to enforce such a rule io a
country like this.
Somebody says that owing to change of
ministry, ' tbe credit of our Government
has, of late years, been perniciously and
In the good old times when Government
was steady, it paid for borrowed money 9,
and even as high as 12 per cent.; now it can
borrow on its bonds, whatever it may need
at 7 per cent. Then what is "sapped?"
What does tbe Gazette mean by " return
commission for liimeelf," (the agent of the
planter?) Is a guarantee commission required
lor sales to Mr.Claus Spreckels, to be divided
between tbe San Francisco and Honolulu agents ?
We thought Mr. Spreckels a solvent party. We
want more light on the subject.
A contemporary mixes up ministers
and vaccination. Ministers have not been
steadfast, and vaccination has been
irregular. Perhaps he wants ministers

The Native War cn the Samoan Islands.
By the arrival of the schooner Elise from Saaii
on Tuesday, we learn that the Old Tarty, num
bering about 200 men, made a descent upon the
town of Lona, Faasaleleaga, on Thursday last,
and killed fire old men (non-combatants,) one
woman and four children, the murderers decapita
ting the whole of their victims. The people of
Lona, not suspecting an attack, were busy cook
ing their ovens when the warriors of the Old
Party made their appearance, and, as tbe young
men of the town were absent, they could not
make any effectual resistance. Information of the
attack was, however, speedily conveyed to the
camp of the King Party, a short distance from
Lona, and immediately a large body of men was
despatched in pursuit of the ' marauders, who,
after completing their bloody work, had retreat
ed. The Malietoa troops speedily overtook tbe
butchers, and an engagement ensued, in which
tbe Kin Party had three killed. The Iessea of
the Old Party have not been ascertained, but
tbey are believed to be heavy. Latest accounts
state that tbe Itu-o-tane have been unable to
make good their retreat, and are now cooped up
on the beach near Lona, the King's forces having
completely surrounded them. It is also reported
by an eye-witness that the ranks of the besieged
are being daily thinned by deaths from starvation,
and from the wounds received in the recent en
gagement. No such outrage as tbat just commit
ted by tbe Itu-o-tane has occurred in these islands
for many years, and we fear that it is one evi
dence, among others, that the natives of this
group, notwithstanding the efforts daily made for
their advancement, are fast relapsing from their
comparative state of civilization of ten or fifteen
years ago into their original barbarism. It is
not yet known what will be the result of this out
burst of heathenism on the side of the Old Party,
but it is feared that it will lead to reprisals on
ths part of Malietoa s followers. It was rumored
in town during the week that an engagement had
taken place near Palauli last Saturday, in which
the government schooner had taken a part; but
this report wants confirmation. The Old Party
on Tutuila are said to be active, and preparing to
participate in tbe struggle. This island is quiet.

Planetart Conjunction, in 1881. The most
interesting feature connected with the movement
of the planets is that of their conjunctions or
passings of one another ; 1881 will be especially
notable in this respect. Omitting those of Mer
cury as being too close to tbe sun to be watched
for any length of time before or after, they are as
follows : Venus will be in conjunction three
times, or, as it is commonly called, make a
triple conjunction." with no less than three
planets Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune, and once
with Uranus. Mars will be in conjunction with
Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune and Jupiter with
Saturn and Neptune. There will be a remarkable
grouping of the planets during the month of June.
On the 18th, all of the major planets, excepting
Mercury and Uranus, will be within twenty
degrees of each other ; a celestial gathering of
most rare occurence..
Transit or Mercury. On Nov. 7th, the planet
Mercury being near its ascending node while
passing inferior conjunction, will be seen as a
small black spot projected against tbe sun's disc
and moving with a retrograde motion across its
sotbern limb. Transit, of Mercury, though occurr
ing much more frequently than those of Yen us, are
of but little scientific value, owing to the greater
distance of the former, and its consequent slight
parallax. The present, transit, which Is of five
hour, and twenty minuitea duartion, will be
altogether invisible in Europe aod the Eastern
part of the American continent, but will be
visible throughout its whole course in these
Tbe appearance of a new island in the Azore
group is thus accounted for by Mr. T. E. Thorpe:
1 learn that the repsrt, he says, has its
foundation in the occurrence of a land-slip on the
north-east end of St. Ueorge. A large portion of
tbe land at Lapa, near the Tillage marked Topo
oo Yidal. chart, launched itself bodily into the
sea that is, in an almost unbroken mass to a
distance of about three metres from tbe mainland.
There were a number of cattle grazing on tbe
land at the time; these apparently were so little
affected by the occurrence that when found they
were feeding unconcernedly on tbe new inland, as
if it bad been associated with their whole exist
ence." Tbe tract thus separated ia about eighty
twj alqueiro. in area.
