SHELTER SHEDS ON THE
The rainy season is coming on
ngain and still considerable part of
our wharf accommodation i3 un
elicltcrcd. How are the men to
work and the freight to be protected
on these open and uncovered
It is a universally received axiom
that all accommodations and faci
lities given to the public or any sec
tion of it, ultimately repay their
cost not only in increase of business
but in hard cash. Kvcry branch
of the public service not only in this
but in other countries affords
numerous examples of it. And right
bcro in Honolulu what department
of public affairs is more nccossar
than that.of harbor accommodations.
If there were no facilities for the
export and import of merchandise
and natural productions what would
the prosperity of these islands be ?
The facilities for the receipt and
discharge of cargo affect our two
greatest industries, the planting and
the mercantile. The planter is in
terested in seeing that his produce is
shipped promptly and expeditiously
and that as much care of it is taken
as possible ; the merchant that his
goods arc exposed to as little danger
of damage as possible.
And it is to meet both of these
ends as well as to ensure the com
fort of the laborer employed in the
transhipment that we advocate the.
erection of shelter-sheds on all our
wham It is a well-known fact
that most of the sugar arrives in the
wet season and that so far there has
not been Mifllcient facilities for its
protection from the weather. And
we arc mi re that those interested
will bear the greater part of the
expense if the Government will take
the matter in hand. It is as well,
too, that this should be done with
out, delay. Government works are
proverbially notorious for the length
of time which is taken to carry them
out out. But let this be done quick
ly and well and the planters, mer
chants, and wharf laborers will have
reason to bless the prudent fore
sight and Migacity of the Govern
ment. And " Govcrnraeut stroke"
will no longer be a synonym for
laziness but for skill.

1)h. King, U.S. Army physician,
has been writing considerably on the
influence of locomotives on the pub
lic health. He asserts that many
parts of the large Eastern cities,
which were formerly uninhabitable
from the miasma arising from
swampy land, are now healthy local
ities, owing to the purification of
tka nir by tho heat and incessant
motion of the locomotives.. Tho
theory Is well worth consideration.
A LETTEtt, dated Albany, West
Australia, July 17th, was received by
a gentleman in this town from Capt.
Mellon, of the steam whaler Lucretla.
It -will be remembered that on the
8th iust., we notified that the Lucre
tia had turned up there after being
missing over a year. The Captain
explains matter:) by stating that on
his arrival off Capo Horn from New
Bedford he found the vessel so foul
that he could not make any westing:
he therefore turned eastward and
sailed past the Cape of Good Hope
to West Australia. He expects to
arrive in San Francisco in November.
Maushal Paiike sent Captains
Mchrtcns and Tell over to Kancohe
on Sunday to inquire into the dis
turbance there. As the result of
their visit the officials there have
been stirred up and we hear that one
man has been fined $100 for sup
plying liquor to natives on the Hecia
plantation ; and the sheriff is busily
engaged in hunting up more
offenders. It would be well, wc
think if a little more stirring up of
this kind was done. Let a vigilant
officer be selected to go round the
islands as a general inspector and
hunt up these cases. Wc hear that
the Marshal, with his usual fore
sight, has the matter under con
sideration. There is a man in this town who
is capable of doing a smart thing
occasionally. Going into a shop a
little while ago he spoke of his facil
ities for bringing trade to it, and asked
what commission he would get. The
answer was satisfactory, and for
some time lid busied himself in
bringing customers in and after
wards going for the fees. By aud
by, however, his business got slack
and he adopted a new mode. Taking
his stand at a convenient distance
from the door, he waited till he saw
some one go in and then he
would accompany them and see
what they bought. Of course
he claimed his per ccntage.
This too began to get played out and
one day as he was in the shop, he
noticed a gentleman buying some
trifles, so turning to one of the shop
people, he said, " I shall persuade
him to buy a big lot from you to
morrow. I know he wants some
thing." "You arc too lata," said
tho other, " for he just bought what
he wanted, yesterday." Now comes
the point. " I shall collect my per
centagc on that, then," said he.
" No, you won't, cither," icplicd Mr.
Shopman, "your game is played

Toto will be seven next birthday,
but he is smart for his age. He
loves to cook. Under the eyes of
his mother, who had made him a
present of n superb cooking appara
tus, he was preparing some fancy
arrangement, "What are you making
there, Toto?" said she, "you will
become too good a cook, and when
you'll grow up you will not need a
wife." Toto, with the smile of a
finished roue, replied, "Oh, but wo
men are not needed only for cook
ing." That enfant terrible again. A
visitor explains to Toto how mush
rooms grow in the dark. " I under
stand then mama, who
shuts up her hair every night in a
drawer, docs it to niaku it grow
during tho night." Wails and
lamentation after the visitor goes

The Marquis was incredulous.
"Would you like to prove it,"
said the doctor, "every week I give
a dinner to some friends at which
somo one or two of these patients
are present." Will you como and
sec for yourself?" "Willingly."
" 1 will come next week."
He came and dined. After dinner

Did you recognize him ? "
