THIS DAY'S DOINGS.
Ladies' Prayer Meeting at Fort St.
Churchy .t3 o'clock.
IniprovcdjOrcJcr of Hod Men, at
Morning .Star Lodge, K. of J. nt
Mtisicnl Society, 1'rncliec, 7 :00.
The roads of Honolulu seem to
attiaet no attention from members
of the Government. It is possible
Hint tlicy notice them, but they do
not show it by taking any sensible
action in the matter. Some months
ago vc were promised a road
scraper from California, and one was
stated by the Minister to have been
ordered. So far no sign of it lias
In tbc meanwhile nothing of" a
temporary nature is being done, and
the streets get dirtier and dirtier
every day. Wc are told by the Road
Supervisor that it is not worth while
doing any tiling temporal ily except
tilling up dangerous holes, nntil the
slrccts can bo made permanently.
This is vciy true, but a little
greater expedition in making
the streets permanently, would con
siderably lessen the just complaints
which arc so life just now. Just
think of the wear and tear to vehi
cles and tbc loss of time to freight
nnd passengers which the present
bad state of the roads causes. A
calculation has been made that it
takes something like 830,000 a year
to keep the public vehicles of the
town in repair. All this comes out
of the pockets of the people, and at
least half of it could be saved if the
roads were good.
Thciloss to the community in both
time and money which these badly
conditioned roads causes is cnor--mous,
nnd if it could be exactly as
sessed would probably reach 300,
000 a year. Now, if one-third of
this sum ivcre spent in keeping the
streets of the town in good condi
tion, just imagine lvlint splendid
streets wc should have.
The Ministry lake great credit to
themselves that tlicy don't permit
transfers, but they have another
duty besides preventing the misap
propriation of money they have to
spend their income to the greatest
advantage for the public.
"We learn fiom "Wednesday's
Gazette' that C. 1). Hinckley who
attempted to recover damages from
Drs. Fitch and Rodgcrs for alleged
improper treatment of a fractured
thigh bone, has been operated upon
in San Francisco and it has been
found thit the bone was prevented
fiom uniting by a piece of muscle
which had got between the fractured
cuds. It was proved by expert tes
timony on the trial, that this accident
was one which was liable to occur
nnd also that it was a condition for
which the attending physicians were
in no way responsible and which it
was moreover impossible for them to
discover at the time. "Wc congratu
late Drs. Fitch and Rodgcrs upon
this vindication of their professional
skill, and regret that they should
have been put to great trouble and
expense in a matter where it now
appears they were not to blame.

Somi: Chinese merchants had or
dered quantities of liquor from
China before the passing of the new
liquor law. As they had ordered it
in ignorance of tho law before it was
passed they were helped out of their
difficulty by others who had impoi t
ing licenses. Still, however, these
same Chinese merchants, since the
passage of the law, have ordered
more liquor, and now they have
again evaded the penalties by getting'
others to pass their entries.
Tin: conduct of the Minister of
Finance has been many times de
grading ,to the high office which he
holds. Especially' was this the case
at the luncheon after thei unveiling
of the statue. His fellow .Ministers
at last became sensible of thcodium
which he was bringing on them aild'
remonstrated in such a manner that
we believe wc are conect in slating
that his resignation or dismissal will
shortly be officially announced. If
this indeed bo true, the Ministry arc
to be congratulated on having taken
a manly and independent stand at

districts who were appointed to at

morning at !). They came and were
told to come again in the afternoon.
They came again and wcio told to
come at 1 o'clock next day. This
was the daj' of the unveiling of the
Kamcliameha Statute) and of course
they were not presented. They then
held an indignation meeting and
sharply criticized that officials ac

Enrroit Bulletin: Please allow
me iMittlo ''space in your paper to
express my pleasure and satisfaction
villi a sentence in the Aiifliam
Church Chronicle. The sentence
to which I refer is in the " Reading
Lesson," and runs thus, "The pro
gress of the children depends quite
as much on tho disposition of the
teacher as upon the methods used."
This is undoubtedly true, although
too often ignored in considering the
essential qualifications of teachers.
I believe as much in, teachers being'
qualified for thefr profession by
tegular and thorough training as iu
doctors, lawyers and clergymen be
ing prepared for their respective
professions by special instruction
and training iu the various branches
of their particular lines ; but I also
belicvo that training only will not
make a successful teacher. A know
ledge of methods and measures docs
not make a man kind and .sympathe
tic and patient and firm nnd enthusi
astic, and these qualities arc essen
tial to tho success of any nnd every
teacher. In other words, a teacher
who lacks the "disposition" which
secures tho affection and confidence
of his pupils will never achieve great
success iu teaching. Pati:ic.

Mr. Archibald' Douglas, l a settler
