$ GOVERNMENT PSIHTIITG
w Saturday's P. C. A. has a very
r-plnusible article on " Government
Printing Patronage." The whole
& matter is briefly explained, to the
" entire satisfaction of tha Advertiser ;
i' but the Bumxtin does not sec it in
i a precisely similar light. Not that
i we think', the Government notices
' aud other Government documents
f Bhould appear in every newspaper
? published in the kingdom this is
'r,neilhcr necessary nor economical.
("Nor do Ave for one moment suppose
i that the Bui.txrix should he made
Stlic vehicle of Government notices
, arid other Government documents.
I .'Therefore, let not the Advertiser be
so credulous as to believe, or so
, weak-minded as to imagine, that wo
, are guilty of uttering " lamentations
' bout Government printing putron
age," or arc desirous of securing
official favor." But we do hold,
,i "with the Advertiser, that all Govern
ment documents of a public nature
'bhould be " printed in journals cal
culated to promote geneial pub
licity;" and further, contrary to the
Advertiser, that Mich documents arc
not at the present time being so
We are free to admit that of the
two foreign journals published on
Saturdays ,l it is reasonable that the
one of tho largest circulation should
receive the patronage" and that "two
are not needed." No doubt tho two
foreign journals Advertiser and
Gazette representing as they do tho
two parties of " Ins " and " Outs,"
embrace very nearly the whole of
the foreign readers in the commun
ity, and publication in these two
journals " would MillicicnUy diffuse
publications " for foreign informa
tion. Yet we cannot admit that " publi
cation in cither one of the native
b journals would sufficiently diffuse
publications for native information."
It may be true that the three native
i journals h.ive " about an equally
largo circulation," although we have
reason for thinking it is not true.
Be that as it may, it is an easy mat
ter to prove that publication in the
EleU alone does not " sufficiently
diffuse for native information;" for
"there are large numbers of native
t pvople, regular readers of the A'ttn-
koa or Jtc Ain-, who never see the
f Ji'lele. Notwithstanding our limited
acquaintance with Hawaiians, wo
' could name dozens of native families
right here in the city who patronize
ona or other of the first named
papers to tho exclusion of the last.
Moreover, we arc confidently assured
by intelligent llawaiians, who have
' no interest in tho matter one way or
the. other, that a considerable mnjor
, ity of the native people are not
readers of the J'Jlele. And for that
reason all Government notices and
i other documents intended for public
information should appear in at
l least one of the other native jour
nals. Wo are not saying that Gov
ernment patronago should be with
held from the Mlcle, but we do as
sort that confining it to tho Elela is
not calculated to promote " public
It is, no doubt, magnanimous of
' parties lu power " to " allow pub
lic document) to be printed" in such
an anti-government organ as the j
Gaiette, fortbesakeof "promoting
general publicity ;" but it is hard to
convince the public that those same
"parties in power" have not shown
themselves to bo "thin-skinned" in
their treatment of tho adverse por
tion of the unlive press. Wc, in our
short-sightedness, fail to sec why
one native journal should "sulllcicnt
ly diffuse" information among the
native population, when two foreign
journals arc needed for a similar
"diffusion" among tho much smaller
fureigu population. Perhaps the
Advertiser can make it clear.

A short time before noon of Wed
nesday we arrived at Kahului, after
a voyage of nearby 20 hours from
Honolulu. A few minutes' rido on
the railroad (not in Pullman cars)
brought us to Wniluku. Those who
have made the same voyage need
not be told that I, not being a very
good sailor, was in a condition to
enjoy a rest much better than a trip
among the plantations that after
noon. Thursday I went to Wuihcc
and took a hasty glance at what was
going on in that part of the country,
while Friday and half of Saturday
were spent in seeing the sights on
the Sprcckels' plantation.
One story with slight variations
may be told of all of the plantations
which I have seen. The mills have
shut down, but preparations arc
making for a big run late in the
year. Machinists are all busy
making repairs and improvements in
the machinery. And the same energy
is shown in the work out of.doors.
All hands are busy plowing, plant
ing and cultivating the fields. "When
I baw eight yoke of oxen drawing a
single plow it occurred to me that
an improvement on that method of
plowing is at least possible. The
bight of the steam plow running on
tho Sprcckeln' plantation added
strength to tho conviction. Two
small engines draw a gang of three
fourteeii-inch plows back and forth
across a field with a speed far
greater than horses. The success
of this plow does not seem equal to
that reported from Minnesota and
Dakota, but the amount of work
done by a given number of oxen
hero would, probably, differ more
from that done by the same number
there. All things considered, the
success of this plow seems encour
aging. "When I saw it, it was plow
ing ground which had no.vcr been
The meetings carried on by Mr.
llallcnbeek and others certainly did
a considerable amount of good
more or less permanent. Their in
fluence seems to have extended to
foreigners almost as much as to tho
Coming to Laliaina qn Saturday I
found the Lahnina plantation, like
those of East Maui, tho scene of
general activity. All arc preparing
to make the next crop larger than
any has been in tho past. T.S.II.
Wk heard of a little incident that
occurred on Sunday, at Wnikiki.
Since the revival services of Mr.
Hallenbeck, a number of young men
have been going round and holding
meetings, trying to carry on the good
work, and especially to induce tho
llawaiians to be more earnest and
united in the church. A party of
these weut to Wnikiki on Sunday
and hold finite a good meeting there.
During the course of tho meeting a
haole, speaking excellent Hawaiian,
got up and asked if ho might be al
lowed to speak. lie was allowed to
do so, and, after premising that ho
loved tho Hiv'piian intensely, ho an-
nounced that they were practising a
false religion, that the only true re
ligion was the Mormon form of be
lief. It was with great difficulty that
lie was persuaded to cease from his
un-called for attacks on the Chris
tian religion. How will the popula
tion of the Islands bo affected if
Mormons arc allowed to proselytize,
and then withdraw their converts to
Salt Lake ?

A well-to-do citizen of Honolulu
being one day twitted regarding the
shabbincss of his pants about the
knees, said it was tho result of much
piety ; perhaps so, but how do you
account for the " pukas " in that
part of your pants " where mothers
smite their young," that, he replied,
arises from a long acquaintance with
tho stool of repentance. Do you re
cognize cur witty friend ?
Yestkkuay wo were witness of a
pleasing ceremony in the Bethel
Church tho marriage of Mr. Ernest
Kopkc, of Lihnc, Kauai, with Miss
Jennie Hines, of this city. The
bride wore a handsome dress of
white China crepe, trimmed with
white satin and rich lace, and a
wreath and veil of white tulle. The
general comment was that it was tho
handsomest bridal costume seen for
a long while. A novel feature was
that the bride's attendants were Mr.
J. C. Glade's six young children,
all tastefully arrayed. The Rev. Dr.
Damon performed the ceremony In
the presence of a large attendance of
friends of the bride and bridegroom.

The Captain of the Uilama ran it

A gentleman informed us j'estcr
day that a short time ago, while he
was away from home, his house was
broken into, and money, jewellery,
and liquors were stolen. lie placed
the matter in the hands of tho
police, and, a day or two afterwards,
a messenger from the police ofllcc
was sent to him, asking him to state
the value of the articles stolen, aud
alleging as a reason that although
the goods might not be recovered,
still the value of them might be ob
tained in time to give it to him be
fore he left for Europe on tho next
steamer. The gentleman naturally
supposed from this that the robber
was kuown to tho police, and stated
that that his desire was not to get
the value of the things stolen, but to
punish the thief. However, so far,
the police hac not made any dis
covery in the matter, and most prob
ably, the gentleman will go away
and impress other intending visitors
with an unfavorable idea of the se
curity of property in these islands.
