Eveiv dm we hear of Home new
xtt'rtiuiiaic faro being oliargcd by
express drivers, especially to those
who arc stranger.". And yet there is
a reg'ilar beak- at legal charges ptib-lisli'-ii,
which passengers may see on
demanding it, and which no express
driver ran go behind. Uut there are
two placi'H which have no ilxed rate
ch.trge.d -the Pali and the. Pail: and
it k generally to the.-e places that
the exorbitant rates arc paid. In the
days previous to Mr. Wilder being
Minister of the Interior, we arc in
formed that there were no fixed rates
by law and that lie saw the evil and
reino.Ued it. And to this day he is
gratefully thought of by travellers
atal occasionally cursed by express
drivei h. It would, we believe, great
ly increase the popularity of the pre
sent MiniMer if he would take the
bull by the horns and grapple with
the question of the rates for the
ever-increasing carriage tralllc.
For a country like tin's, where so
many people in proportion to the
population use carriages, it is a mat
ter of the. inmost importance to sec
that the public convenience is con
Bulled in this. To some extent this
has been done by Mr. James Dodd
in his regular buss lines, and it
would have been done still more by
the proposed tramway lines, if the
greed of the originators, had not led
the in to try to make a monopoly of
it, without any guarantee that the
public could control it at pleasure
. The whole fare system ought to
be- revised and extended. In the
days when it was promulgated set
tleraent towards '.he plains and the
Park had not readied the extent
that it has now, and consequently
the necessity for making fare rates
had not arisen. Hut now when it is
a regular thing every day for ex
presses to go out that way, the rate
ought to be fixed and the passenger
not left so much to the mercy of the
And to such an extent has this ex
tortiin reached that we are credibly
informed that those persons who arc
known to insist on paying the legal
Jan only oilcn cannot get an ex
press driver to take tliera, on the
pica that they are engaged. They
would rather remain idle and chance
gelling more than take the legal fare
from those persons. These things
ought to be looked into and remedi
ed piedily. However, wc do know
jicrnonally of two or three honest

variably refuses to take more than

months since this ought to have
been done and the public arc anxious

We hear that the Rules and Regu
lations of the licensing of carriage
drivers, will probably be issued this
week, when steps will be taken to en
force the law. An olllcer has al
ready been told to watch the differ

be thoroughly acquainted with them
before the Act comes into operation.
This is a good idea.
An old man came down from
Maui by the Lchua, and having
found his relations sat down on the
edge of the wharf to talk. He
suddenly felt dizzy and in standing
up fell into the water. On hearing
the noise Mr. W. S. Wond, who was
close at hand went to sec what was
the matter. With the help of two
others he was pulled out of the water,
and when he came to his first words
were what a narrow' escape."
Ose of our fellow-townsmen was
explaining to his five-year-old heir
why it was necessary for his father
to work every day, stating among
other things the cost of provisions
and the importance of having money
to buy them. The hopeful listened
attentively, and after a pause, ex
claimed: "Oh, Papa, mc think if
lou didn't have to pay for beef and
milk and everyting, it would be more
nicer, don't it."
It has been generally noticed that
at parties and festive gatherings
during the last few months, where
(lags have been employed as decora
tions that the Hawaiian flag was
eituer not represented at all or at
most was uniioticeahlc amongHt the
groat quantity of American flags
displayed. We can statu that this
has not occurred from any want of
respect for the Hawaiian flag, hut
ui-uuu'ju u is a scarce article nere
and the keepers of the largest num
ber of them arc so disinclined to
loan them, that they throw every
obstacle that punctilio can suggest
in the way of obtaining them.
