JUNIUS AND PROGRESS.
We arc under obligation to Junius
for the pains he has fao kindly taken
to point out to us and to the public
"evidences of the progiessivcucss of
the present government." It is sel
dom that our inquiries arc answered
"at all, and scldomcr still that they
meet with such prompt and polite
considciation. This unusual and
unexpected treatment moves us to
tender our special thanks to our
learned friend, and in this public
manner testify our deep appreciation
of his condescending kindness.
Here we would have rested the
matter, feeling ivc had done all that
common courtesy required towards
one who had conferred on us a
favor; but lest the noble Junius
should smile in his sleeve and think
his heart that "the little Rri.1.1:-
tin is gifted with a certain amount
of credulity that he would do well to
restrain," or lest the garrulous
Gazette, who is so blind as to be un
able to see that "rcplj" in the
Elele, should again accuse us of be
ing "gulled by the insinuating and un
reliable Advertiser," duty to our
selves constrains us to take a
cursory review of those wonderful
"evidences of progressivencss"
enumerated by Junius.
No doubt the " Department of
Foreign Affairs" did its duty by for
warding to "every Consular Agent
of this Kingdom" a certain declara
tion, refuting "statements concern
ing the labor traflic in 'these
islands ;" but it did no more than
that Department has been in the
habit oti doiug from the days of
Vylic. Even the credulous Junius
says "it is not much."
In what way has the "general
health of the nation" been improved
by the action of the present govern
ment? The "general health" here in
Honolulu has usually been much
impaired during the wet season, for
several years past, by typhoid fever.
If the present season, so far, is
comparatively free from that cause
of suffering and death, does Junius
wish us to believe that the improve
ment is duo, to the fact that the gov
ernment have had under considera
tion a scheme for the sewerage of
the city? A previous Board of
Health was admittedly responsible
for the introduction of the small-pox
epidemic of 1881, but wc arc hi no
yay convinced that the present
,Board would have done any better
under the same circumstances. Has
any ship hi ought small-pox into our
harbor or roadstead during the in
cumbency of the present Board of
Health? And have they by their
"strict measures" prevented its get
ting ashore''' Junius doesn't show
very much respect for truth when he
says, "The former Boards literally
did nothing but pay out salaries."
Was it the present Board who put
up the original buildings at Kakn
'riko? Junius would have us believe
so? The less he has to say about
"paying out salaries" the licttcr for
his own cause. It is believed that
too close a scrutiny of that parti
cular matter will not make the pre
sent Board appear in the most
favorable light. No one questions
that "progression" has been made
, in that direction. It is a good thiug
that "the present Board hnvo en
gaged doctors," and it- would have
been well if the same Board had
not, by their treatment, driven one
or two others out of tho country.
Do you, Junius, know why 0110 of
the Kauai doctors left the Kingdom
two or three weeks ago? Our volu
' blc friend does not specify parti
cularly those "great improvements
made in the management of lepers,"
but is good enough to tell us that it
is the "intention to gather them"
tho lepers "all in." This is a pro
per progressive step, hut wc cannot
so qualify that preliminary "pro
gressive" move, namely, tho public
announcement of the "intention,"
by which lepers were Afforded an
opportunity of concealing them
selves, which opportunity litis been
duly improved by many. Accord
ing to JiiiijuVb showing, tho Board
of Health must be an uncommonly
"progressive" body of men, for ho
says that they "uro just getting to
work after being uovcu months 'in
olllcc l" Wiut a lively Bopvdl
Ordinary individuals, that is, per
sons of ordina.-y brains and ordinary
activity, would have commenced
work seven months ago ; but these
are no ordinary men ; they aro so
"progressive" that they must be
"seven months in olllcc" before
'getting to woikl"
We aro sorrow that our short
space compels us to part company
with our friend Junius, for the pre
sent; not, however, without hope of
resuming intercourse at some future
linio. Before palling wc would like
to ask him to keep us posted in "tlic
progress that" is being "made in the
way of roads and bridges on Kauai,
Maul, and Hawaii;" because he can
show us the "iinproemcnts" on
those islands in a brighter light than
our coi respondents who reside there.
Our youth and circumscribed cx
pciicncc cannot fall to be benefitted
by contact with the age and large
experience of one who "travels
around the islands occasionally;"
and if he should ever again leave
tliis island and go so far 11s "Wailuku
to witness the trial of a steam plow,
our "youug man" would crave the
privilege of joining him.
THE TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION
Kc-asscmblcd on Tuesday afternoon,
at 2 o'clock, when Dr. Hyde read a
paper from Mr. Olcscn on the use of
teaching Hawaiians elementary Eng
lish. Mr. Moore followed with a
paper on methods of teaching. A
good discussion followed each.
On Wednesday morning, after
prayer by Dr. Hyde, the minutes
were read. Mr. Baldwin gave an
excellent prelude to Miss Shccley's
paper on the Tonic Solfa. Dr. Hyde
followed with remarks on Industrial
Schools for Hawaiian boys. He read
the following resolution: "Resolved,
that the maintenance of an Indus
trial School for boys should be a
part of the educational system of the
Hawaiian. Islands, and that the
pressing needs of this largo and im
portant clement in the rising genera
tion of Hawaiian youth present. A
strong appeal 'to the enlightened
Christian' liberality of our wealthy
citizens to equip and endow such an
institution." A strong discussion
followed, and Miss Norton made a
few remarks on the education of

I was struck the other evening on
entering Fort Street Church to sec
such 11 largo and attentive congrega
tion. It is something unusual in
these days of hurry mid excitement to
find, a congregation, old and young
alike of which, sit quiet and eager'
listeners through the whole of church
time ; but so it was oil this and 'all
other occasions on )which I .visited
this church. The secret I thought
must be with the preacher, and o it,
proved. Quiet and unassuming of
manner, plain and homely of speech
his power to hold attention lies
wholly in his earnestness. For a
young man his face is thoughtful
and serious even stern. A stranger
involuntarily wonders if he can ever
cast aside the responsibility of his
great task, and be gay and merry
hearted like other men. I lis voice
capable of good modulation, is yet
somewhat monotonous in tone, and
on an English car peculiarities of
pronunciation and expression arc
apt to grate somewhat harshly ; but
in his moments of impassioned
fervour, as he grows eloquent with
the subject in hand, these trivial, mat
ters of detail arc lost sight-of-you
forget to criticize, you allow your
self to be swayed under the power
of an eloquence, born as true elo
quence ever is of truth and earnest
feeling. A habit this gentleman has
of "addressing the floor," "if 1
may so express it" must always
mar the beauty of his discourse.
The preacher at all times is placed
at a disadvantage to the general
speaker, in that he has to bend over
and speak down to his audience,
in doing this the vocal chords be
come depressed and the voice weak
and indistinct, more' especially is
this noticeable when the speaker
half turns from his audience mid in
metaphors seems to address that
part of the lloor lying' nearest his
feet at 'such times, it would appear
that he more soliloquizes with him
self, than speaks to his'liearcrs, and
much of the impressednes-i of the
language is lost in 'the endeavour to
catch the words and their meaning.
No one on Sunday evening, could
listen to that powerful and thor
oughly manly address without feel
ing, not only the solemnity 'of the
subject, but being aroused by the
preachers simple yet touching 'earn
estness. I have heard many lectures
and sermons on that paiticulnr sub
ject, but I never yet heard it dealt
with in such telling language, nor
the fearful effects of the demon
drink painted with such terrible
truth. All honor to the man who is
not afraid to speak out for con
science sake, who fears not to speak,
his mind, in laugungc plain, and
stern, and clear, who sets himself a
noble task and sees ever before iljim
a high and Christ-like mission nor
tin us aside, nor for praises, nor
place. Personally, Mr. Cruzan is
uuknowu to me. As a visitor to your
beautiful city, I have felt great in
terest in listening to his address the
few times I have been privileged to
hear him, and believing liim to" be
an' earnest and upright worker in his
cause, this tribute of gratitude may
not be .amiss although coming from
