j -a it of the
(From ;ht Dl'y Puesf.e Commercial Advtr'iier.)
We are plad to have the authority of
Directors of the Planters' Labor and Supply,
Company t6 contradict calumnies which
have been circulated against His Excel
lency the Premier in regard to his action in
the matter of the Importation of laborers
to this Kingdom. That it is sound policy
for tin country to encourage the importa
tion of laborers, and to assist therein, is
recognized by the Government ; and the at
tempt which has been made to convict
them of insincerity in their professions is
but of a piece with that system of personal
ities which is the disgrace of journal
ism in this country. Anything true or un
true which will detract from the character
of those who are disliked is acceptable
pabulum for some editorial columns. No
pains are spent to get at the truth of things
that might spoil the point of an article.
The action taken by the Government in
'onnection with the despatch of the Julia
y the Planters' Labor and Supply Oom
pany is acknowledged by the latter to have
been both prompt and ample. Notwith
standing the fact that members of the Cab
inet feel great doubts about the wisdom of
recruiting for laborers in the South West
ern Pacific, and have their apprehensions
as to the result, they sank personal opin
ions in the desire to support the planters
in their endeavor to do something for them
selves. In regard to the proposed mission
to Japan they have gone farther, and have
assured t he Company not only of their
hearty co-op-ratioi), but of pecuniary aid
of t lie most liberal kind if the Assembly
shall make the appropriations for the pur
pose which are necessary. Without money
they can do nothiii.', and the Planters' La
bor ami Supply Company is not prepared
to provide the necessary means. In the
British Colonics when the Gorernmeuts
undertake the importation of labor for
planters a deposit from the latter is re
quired, varying from $2.3 to $30 per head of
laborers needed, and bonds have to be en
tered into by the planters to ensure the
employment of the men imported. Nothing
of this sort has ever been asked from our
planters here. Had they been prepared to
iind the funds a mission to Japan might
have been organized at once. Neither the
Company nor the Government can do more
in the matter until money is forthcoming
to pay the expense of importation.
The Planters' Iabor and Supply Com
pany have, as we have said, undertaken
the outfit of the expedition to the South
Seas. Having the assurance of the Gov
ernment's willingness to undertake the
mission to Japan they will be wise to turn
their attention to the Chinese field. The
Government is using its best endeavors to
secure a remission of the restrictions on the
emigration of laborers from Canton and
Hongkong to these Islands. Their efforts
might wisely be seconded by the despatch
of an agent of the Company to China.
Kvitiently our resident Chinese know how
to procure coolies to supply their own
wants, as witness the lot imported by the
Triumph. Seeing that so many planters
have expressed their preference for Chinese
laborers a mission to China seems a suit
able work for the Company to engage in.
The opposition in the Assembly to the
bill which would enforce certain Building
Regulations within particular limits in
this city, appears to arise chiefly from the
idea that it will cause hardship to some of
the poorer proprietors of land who have
not the Bieans to rebuild their dilapidated
tenements in a substantial manner. The
it lea is a purely sentimental one. The value
of land within the limits designated in the
bill is now so high that any one owjiing
a building lot can readily borrow the funds
neces ary for building In brick upon it ; or
he can sell out his holding on advantageous
terms to those who have the means to build
in a substantial manner.
Regulations disallowing the erection of
wooden buildings in the densely peopled
parts of towns are universal elsewhere, and
the necessity for them is so well recognized
that they are enforced without trouble.
Such rules are founded on theprinciple that
no man can be allowed wilfully to endanger
his neighbors' property. Instead of raising
objections to this measure, which has been
too long delayed, our Legislators ought to
add to it a clause prohibiting the erection
by anyone of a wooden building within, at
the nearest, ten feet from any similar build
ing, whether the neighbouring building be
his own or not. We fear, however, from
the manner in which this bill has been
treated, that the people of Honolulu are not
willing to learn any lessons from the ex
perience of others and that they will
prefer to wait until a few such devastating
tires as have occurred elsewhere bring dis
aster upon them before they will be ready
to conform to tne rules wnicn nave oecome
It is rumored that heads have heen
counted and that it is now considered cer
tain that the Ten Million .Loan Bill will
return full 11 led get! from the committee to
which it has heen referred, and will be car
ried through the House in spite of Ministers
or any one else who may be opposed to it.
e very mucii regret to nave to ueiieve
that there is any foundation for such
rumors. o greater mistaKe, iinanciaiiy
or politically, could be made by the Legisla
ture than to pass sucn a Din as tins, we
have refrained from comment on it because
we did not apprehend that it would re
ceive serious consideration, and because it
was reasonable to suppose that it would be
withdrawn as soon as the Loan Bill which
has been introduced by the Government
was in the hands of members.
The principles of this bill are decidedly
vicious, ana it ueirays, mrougnoui, us
author's want of experience, both of busi
ness affairs aud of statecraft. All its main
features are blunders. It is wrong iu the
amount of the proposed loan, which far ex
ceeds any probable estimate of the country's
credit. It is wrong iu the object which is
specified as the main purpose to which the
money is to be applied a scheme which
will, "in itself, be sufficient to deter any
sound business man from purchasing the
bonds. It is wrong aiso in not nxing a
minimum price at which the bonds shall
be sold, an oversight which renders quite
futile the provision in the first section of
the bill that the rate of interest to be paid
shall not exceed seven per cent.
So long as the scheme embodied in this
bill was the crotchet of a few, so long even
as it was only popular among the more
ignorant classes of the community, who
coul 1 not be expected to see through its
fallacies, no particular harm could come of
it. Such crazes in one form or other have
taken possession from time to time of com
munities far more advanced in civilization
than this. That the Fnglish folK should
have their heads turned by the ' South Sea
Bubble" was far more surprising than that
the Hawaiian, who knows no literature
and no history but that which he can read
in his own language, should be led away
by a scheme which promised him so much.
But to have this thing solemnly passed by
the Legislature of the Kingdom will be a
very different thing. It will give to the
enemies of the race and of Hawaiian inde
pendence (who appear just now half dis
posed to drop their masks) an argument in
favor of their nefarious schemes; and it
will probably render it impossible for this
Kingdom toVaise a loan of any amount for
years to come, however badly she wants it,
and however sensible ami legitimate the
objects on which she proposes to expend the

The Argonaut on Hawaiian Affairs.
The Argonaut of June 24th contains two
articles on "the Sandwich Islands" (as
me eunor cans tiieruj, wulca we Ueem
curious enough to warrant their reproduc
tion, and we accordingly propose to reprint
me wuoie, or me material portions or them
in a future issue of the Advertiser. Cer
tain tricks of phrase, and certain distorted
statements, betray the source to which we
are to attribute the inspiration of these
articles. The sum and substance of them
is that the rule of Hawaii by a native
King and by a Legislature in which na
tives predominate is a farce which has been
played long enough to grow stale ; that
" the future of these Islands belongs to the
intelligent Americans and .European?
who are here ; that the L'uited States Go
vernment desires to encourage " the estab
hshment of a government of Christian,
white and progressive people " here : that
the said Government is 4 heir-at-law" ami
"residuary legatee" to the native Go
vernment, and will, if necessarv, de
fend this right ' in the probate of war"
whatever that may be); and that there
Jfyre the English, French. Germans and
"Ajnericaus on the islands had better ''come
together and agree upon a form of Govern
ment for themselves" with the United
States as "its political sponsor, guardian,
and next friend." Throughout both arti
cles the handwriting is that of Frank M.
Pixley, whilst the ideas are those of Win.
It i a proverb in S 'li Francisco that the
surest way to damn any cause is to get the
editor of the Argonaut to take it up. We
therefore feel obliged to Mr. Armstrong for
blindly selecting such an advocate for his

WANTED A NEW SHERIFF.
Mr. Editor. Paying a flying visit to Lahaintt
the other day, I heard the following story, w hich
is rell authenticated ;
A natire who had been in the hubit of buying
gin from a Celestial, called on John to buy a
bottle. The Celestial took him into his bar-room
and opened a trunk, which contained 24 full
bottles. Of course the nutive thought it much
cheaper to steal the lot than to btiy and pay $4S
for it. So that evening the native Kanihi
watched his chance, got into the bar-room, and
took the entire lot. Of course this was much
better than buying it. Kipihi's little trick was
discovered, but he was not the least put out
at it, but remarked that if the owner of th gin
made any fuss about it he would have the Ce
lestial up for selling him liquor. The active
Deputy-Sheriff was made acquainted with all
the circumstances of the case, and remarked
that he had nothing to do with the affair. Now,
Mr. Editor, what show can there be for the sup
pression of crime, either illicit sale of liquor or
anything else with officials of this stamp to ad
minister our laws? Here are two serious offences
that ought to have been punished. People at
Lahaina would like to have a better man sent
The Thirteen Club.
On Friday evening, January 23rd, a curious club
was organized by thirteen gentlemen of New York,
who dined together that night as a sign that they
had united in a crusade uyainst all old superati
tioiia. Since that time a great number haTe joined
the club, and its organization has been extended to
other cities of the United Statos. The object of
the club, as we gather from a circular issued in it's
name, is " to combat the popular superstitious
wnicn are injurious outgrowths of heathenism
when ignorance predominated and the fears of the
people were used as a lover to advance the interests'1
VI tuc WIlU'l.
The circular proceeds as follows: "That Huch
superstitions should exist to any extent whatsoever
in this enlightened age we e-msider a disgrace to
any civilised community, and we therefore purpose
maKing war upon tiieiu. I he greatest of all un
warrantable tielief is ilint at tidied to thirteen
parsons sitting t .-,' t'ler t dinner. Tiiii en of our
club sit at ruble and dine on the evenii.g of the
thirteenth day t eacn month b; t!.e vear. at 8:13
o'clock, in onrdining hall at the Knickerbocker,'
Xo 434 Sixth Aveiiu-v X. Y.. to practically illns
trate the fallacy of this ridiculous superstition.'
The President of the United States and a iiiniiler
of prominent public men are honorary mcmlK;rs of
the club. Hie l i who dine together to show their de
fiance of the sujorstition evidently tind it desirable
to brace themselves upagainst any lingering relics
of it which may remain in their hearts bv plentiful
libationa oi champagne. So at least the f, Mowing
resolution which they passed at their April meet
iiig would lead us to suppose:
Whereas, 1 lie snjarstition connected with the
day of the week called Friday, has been materially
aided and abetted by its selection as -'hanging dav
by the Judiciary and the Governors of the States
of the I mon; and
Whereas, Friday has. for many centuries past,
been considered by superstitious people an un
lucky day, and, as wo behavo, upon unreasonable
grounds, and which may probably have led to its
choice as '-hanging day;" therefore, be it
Resolved, That it is the unanimous expression
of the "Thirteen Club" that other days of the week
should bear at least their hare of the odium at
taching to Friday, which, by a reprehensible cus
tom, has been so chosen; and
Resolved, That the Archivist of this Club be
and he is hereby requested to forward a copy of
this preamble and resolution to our honored mem
ber, the President of the United States, and to
each of the Governors of the several States, and
Judges of the various courts having power to sen
tence to death, witli the retpiest that they consider
the propriety of selecting other days as well as
Friday for the hanging of murderers", at the same
time conveying the earnest desire of the Club to be
favored with an early reply to this communication,
and an explanation why Friilay lias been so selected
and what, if any, objections there are to a change
in this respect.
Cost of a CiDchona Plantation.
There is a 'possibility of success with
Cinchona trees, in carefully chosen parts
of California. The progress of this in
dustry in Jamaica is unusual, aud the
statistics most directly available for use
here are obtained from the latest Go
vernment report of that island. Three
kinds of Cinchona are planted, the C.
Officinalis, C. S'lrcirubrti. and (J. Cali
saya, which last is thought to be a
hybrid between tho first named. There
is a variety of the Calisaya called Led
gcrjana, originated in Java, which yields
a third more of ouinine than auv nthcr
kind does, but the seed of this is verr
ditticult to obtain. One ounce of ry

but for larger tracts is. of course, K-ms.
Iiut the returns begin the fourth or fifth
year from the bark of the weakly trees

the trees are thus taken, the bark is said
to be worth from $150 to S200 per acre,
thus returning the cost of the plantation
up to that time. By t!? ninth year the
plantation is well established, and has
yielded in all not less than 600 per
acre After this time the value of the
grove increases rapidlv. and the director
