Government Printing Patronage.
EniTon Bulletin : I read an arti
cle the other d.rv in your spicy little
journal about " Government Print
ing Patronage." In tho main I
approve of your article, but not in
every particular. You apparently
approve of the Government notices
being published in tho native news
paper JElele, whilst objecting to
their withdrawal from the other
native papers. I am of opinion, if
it be neeessar' to publish in two
native journals, that the Kuokoa and
Ko Hawaii Jaa Aina should be
the ones selected, becauso they arc
the oldest and have the largest cir
culation. If ono only be used, it
bhonld be the Kuokoa, because
it is the oldest of all tho native
papers, has the largest circula
tion, and has always been recog
nized as the oillcial native organ.
The Klete is the youngest of the
three native papers, and, I am told,
lias the smallest circulation. So I
cannot perceive that the Mlele
Bhould have the Government patron
'ago cither as a matter of right or
Another fact is this, tho JPae
Aina is the property of natives. It
is owned, edited, apd put into type
ny natives. The Eldt is owned
f.nd controlled by a foreigner. Why
should a Government that has boast
ed that it would jealously guard all
native rights take away its patronage
from a native enterprise and bestow
it upon a foreigner ?
Still another fact is, that the pro
prietor of the Klcle is a member of
the Government. We have heard
and read a great deal in the past
about successive covcrnments being
rings, whose sole aim has been to
benefit themselves and friends, with
out seeking the public good. Some
now in power have been loudest in
complaints of this kind. Are they
intending to perpetuate tho nug
I think, Mr. Editor, you are a
trifle too modest in saying that the
Bulletin is not a proper vehicle for
Government notices, &c. If tho
Daily Ado rtiser is a proper medi
um for Government notices, why not
tho Daily Bulletin ?
I shall be thankful if you will in
Bcrt the foregoing in your widely
read paper as tho opinion of ono of
your rcadeis who is also a
Doublo My Advertisement !
Precisely at 4 o'clock yesterday
afternoon everybody was doing his
level best in tho Bulletin oflice.
Our reporter had just returned from
his rounds' with a pocket full of
notes; which, by tho way, were
neither notes of music nor b.'.nk
notes, but notes of incidents and
occurrences. The editor was seated
on nn old kerosene box by his edi--i
torial board,' gazing through a blank
in tho wall which commands a view
of the back slums, snuffing the fra
grant aioma originating in that
quarter, and vigorously scratching
his upper storey, with the object of
evolving some new thought. Our
manager had intently concentrated
his mind and eycB and hands on a
new anil artistic design in the typo
graphic art. The compositors, to a
man and to a boy, inserted their
nimble fingers into tho type cases,
picked up stamps and arranged them
in order with tho speed of electricity.
The press hands were working off
tho outside pages of to-day's issue,
while perspiration rolled down their
faces like granulated cane juice
from the bottom of a vacuum pan.
Thus all was earnestness and de
votion to duty. Not a sound was
heard not a human sound no
sound except tho click of typo, the
rattle of an old press, and tho gentle
rustling of new thoughts in the edi
tor's brain. When, lo ! a dim shadow
suddenly fell on the type cases and
on the foreman's now design and on
Joe's press and on the editor's ideas.
This was regarded as an indication
that something obstructed our chief
avenue nf light, that is to say, tho
doorway. All heads and eyes were
instantly turned in that direction,
and a hearty u Good day, Sir,"
simultaneously burst from every
throat, which was slowly and dole
fully replied to, " G-o-o-d d-a-y,
We were all not a little surprised
even concerned. For our visitor was
La well-known Honolulu trader, who
has tho reputation of doing an im
menso business and rapidly amass
ing a large fortune. This trader had
been a frequent visitor at our shop,
and was on the most friendly and
agroeahle terms with all hands. In
fact, overybody in tho establishment
thought him the jolliest of fellows,
and his visits were usually seasons
of mirth and merriment, his wit and
humor almost bursting the sides of
the ink rollers with laughter. Be
sides, the gentleman had ever been
one of the Bulletin's staunchest
supporters. Not only taking two
copies right along and paying for
them like a man, but being one of
our best advertising patrons and
never once complaining that the
charges wero too high. Hence the
surprise and concern at the mourn
fill voice and elongated face.
With some misgiving and a little
trepidation our manager ventured to
enquire, " Are you unwell, sir?'
After quite n long pause, which kept
us nil in painful suspense, our friend
hesitatingly replied, "Well, no. But
but " Bobbie whispered, "more
stoppage." Auothcr pause, accom
panied by a long-drawn sigh, and
the trader resumed, "But I think of
withdrawing my advertisement."
"Tho deuce you do!" excitedly ex
claimed our manager, "what for?"
"Well, advertising don't pay." Our
editor, who had sprung to his feet
and was standing with bis mouth
wide open, chipped in a learned re
ply, "What, sir, do you as a man of
intelligence assort that advertising
docs not pay? Haven't you read that
Sugden, tho retired London mer
chant, attributed his success to hon
esty and advertising, especially ad
vcrtising? And havon't you heard
that Steward, tho great dry goods
man of New York, declared that ad
vertising was the most profitable in
vestment ho ever raado?" "Yes, I
don't disputo that, but Honolulu is
a small place and everybody knows
everybody." The editor continued,
"Everybody in Honolulu doesn't
know when you get a new shipment
of goods, and everybody doesn't
know everything you have in your
shop, and everybody won't go there
to buy unless they cot a notion that
you have what they want, and the
quickest and surest and completest
method of lelline evcrvbodv and in
ducing everybody to go and pur
chase is by advertising."
I be editor s speech vidontiy made
an impression. The trader looked
less sad, although stil! remaining
thoughtful. It was quite clear to
our people that lie had not yet fully
unburdened his mind. We therefore
encouraged him to expectorate any
thing that might have been kept
back, lie proceeded, with a half
concealed nervous twitching, "Gen
tlemen, J. like the little Bulletin,
and shall continue taking it ns here
tofore; but gentlemen, excuse me,
is not tho Bulletin a littlo smaller
'than tho other papers?"
Yes, Mr. 1 racier, wo agree with
you. ltic bulletin Is small, and
that constitucs one of its best recom
mendations as an advertising medi
um. Being small, it is cheap and
everybody buys it; being smnll, it is
easily read and everybody reads it,
advertisements and all. At least,
that's what many people have told
us, ladies and gentlemen, too.
"The Bos is right," said Bobble,
" everybody goes for the Bulletin.
You just walk into Emma Square
to-morrow afternoon while Mr. Ber-
gci's Baud is carving out music, and
you'll see all the folks with the
Bulletin in their hands, and be
tween pieces they read your add,
and as soon as tho concert is over
they march right down to your shop
and invest." "Correct Bobbie,"
chimed in tho comps, didn't wo all
go up there the other week to get
those new suits that were advertised
and found that wo wero too late,
that everybody had read the add,
made a rush for the clothes, and
cleaned them out?" "When I
went home last night," said little
Joe, " father said I mustn't bring
home any more Bulletins, because
mother was all the timo reading
about new millinery and fine lace
and cheap dress goods, and was
keeping him poor by spending all his
money In toggery."
By this time an entire change had
come over our friend. We all ob
served the altered expression and
the perceptible rounding of features.
The old twinkle camo back to his
eye and tho old light irradiated his
face, and he said in his old mood,
" Gentlemen, I was wrong: I see it:
there is nothing like advertising: the
Bulletin is the best advertising
medium. I have a lot of new goods
coming, and shall requiro double
space : reserve it for mo right away :
I am willing to pay anything. Gentle
men, let us adjourn to Nolte's and
take an ice-cream." Good I Ice
cream it is !
