WEDNESDAY, JUNE 7, 1882.
One of the conservative measures
which wo hope to see passed by the
Legislative Assembly, is an Act
which is talked of to prescribe cer
tain limits in- the city of Honolulu
within which none but fire-proof
buildings shall be erected. Gradu
ally, as the city grows compact in
that portion where business is trans
acted, the interest of property hold
ers prompts them to build of brick
or htone to replace wi rnout wooden
structures ; butas yet there is no legal
obligation for one to do so, and thus
nn obstinate owner of a wooden
shanty may continue to maintain a
standing menace to the safety of his
surrounding ncighbois, who have no
remedy at law.
It is hardly necessary to state,
that in all well-regulated cities of the.
civilized world, restrictions of the
nature spoken of exist. Indeed, in
any considerable town in tho New
England States, all intending build
ers within curtain limits must submit
statement of plans, material to be
used, &c, before permission is
granted by the authorities to build.
We learn that the proposed bill pre
scribes the limits within which none
but firc-pioof buildings may be here
after erected, by a line running from
the harbor front parallel with and
distant one hundred feet West of
Nuunnu Street, to a point one hun
dred feet mauka of Hotel Street,
ence South on u line with Hotel to
point eighty feet beyond Fort,
thence, makai to the harbor front.
It is not anticipated that any rea
sonable complaint can be made
against the proposed law. And the
subject of widening streets, to which
we recently referred, is again sug
gested by this connection.
Few people pass through London
without visiting Messrs. Maskelyne
$ Cook's wonderful entertainment
at the Egyptian Hall, the true
' home of mystery." There can be
seen such sights as really require
seeing to be beliexcd. It would be
hard to make a " down Wester" be
lieve that it is possible to make an
automaton play whist, poker, or
lively tunes on the comet; still
harder to get him to put any faith
in the doings of " Zoe," their "chef
d'reuvre." This really marvellous
mitoinntou lesembles in form a
young lady elegantly dressed in
Turkish garb, with largo turban and
wide trowsers. She is sitting cross
legged on a glass pedestal in form of
something like a music stool. The
audience are requested to go up and
examine her, see there is no false
bottom to the pedestal, and that as
, far as the eye can see all is fair and
above aboard. At her right is an
easel whereon a large oval shaped
' sheet of paper is alllxed. On the
wrd of command from her master,
she lifts her hand, takes np her pen,
and sketches the head of any one
that the audience may wish. The
writer of this has seen her draw
capital portraits of Gen. Garfield,
Kiiig Cetewayo, the Princess of
Wales and many other notable per
. eonages. A few of her finest pro
ductions, with the signatures of Mr.
M.Ukelyno attached, have found
their way into the hands of Messrs.
J. W. Robertson & Co. Among
them arc the celebrities already al
luded to. also one of the Right Hon.
W. K. Gladstone and one of Gen.
Sir Garnet Wolseley.

Prohibition vs. Froo Liquor.
HokoMJi.u, June 5, 1862.
Mil. Kimtoii : The present Legis
lature is, about to be called upon to
dectdo-a question which" will largely
sway tho destiny of the Hawaiian
race. I menn prohibition, or free
liquor. In case the latter becomes
a law, the natural consequence will
be that every Chinese storo and
coffee shop in tho Kingdom will sell
intoxicants. And besides, the num
ber of such shops will be greatly in
creased throughout the islands. Tho
consequence will be that tho unsus
pecting natives will be allured from
whatever habits of Industry they may
have, to lounging around tho rum
shops, thus neglecting their business
and forming all tho attendant vices.
Idleness and dissipation, disease and
poverty, will follow. Their homes
will pass from their hands, and the
proceeds will flow into the coffers of
the rum vender. And what will the
native have got for it? It would be
well for our law-makers to remember
the old adage, " Be sure you are
right, and then go ahead.' Here
so much has been said about the per
petuation of the Hawaiian race, and
so much money lavished to induce a
cognate race to settle aud recuperate
the Hawaiian race, and where the
question is yet unsettled whether
with the greatest sanitary vigilance
the race can be perpetuated, 1 ask,
Is it safe to open ' tho flood-gates of
rum and opium upon this devoted
people t Hawaiians are not a mer
cantile or manufacturing people,
therefore they have nothing to gain
financially, but all to lose.
If proofs were necessary, I would
refer to tho case of the Northwes
tern American Indians, where official
statistics rendeied to the United
States Government show that tho
almost entire depopulation of thnt
part of her territory, is directly
traceable to tho rum smugglers,
many of which hailed from Hawaii.

Mn. Editou: Oblige mo with a
brief space in your Biiixktis to
speak of what I consider a publio
nuisance. It is tho crowding of
hacks at tho entrance of Music Hall,
at the conclusion of a performance,
and the insolence of some of the
drivers. A case in point occurred
on the night of the performance of
tho Mendelssohn Club, A gentle
man with his wife was trying to pick
his wny out of tho mnzo of vehicles,
when he was roughly accosted by
one of these " Jehus," and peremp
torily told to get out of tho way, and
othc viso roughly talked to and
threatened. There should bo a strict
rule, and strictly observed, as to
how near those hacks shall go -to the
entrance of a place of public resort ;
and otherwise, these high-toned
kackmen should be taught civility.
