Candor compels the admission
that the so-called free liquor law has
not improved the social, moral, or
religious condition of Honolulu.
The congregating together of crowds
of people? of all ages and both sexes,
in and around di inking saloons,
fostering habits of intemperance and
indulging in foul and debasing lan
guage, is merely one aspect of the
question, and that one perhaps not
the worst. The amount of private
drunkenness, with u whole train of
attendant vices, practised in certain
localities, is said to be something
enonnojus. The neighborhood north
of the fish market, between King
Street and the sea beach, also the
neighborhood back of old Libert'
Hall, known as Kikihale, have,
among others, been indicated as
nests of wickedness, where drunken
ness, debauchery, quarreling, fight
ing, and other immoralities are
almost nightly occurrences. These
localities being somewhat outside of
ordinary police surveillance, are the
scenes of practices and proceedings
not usually enacted in the more
public parts of the city, and, ac
cording to our informants, their
degradation becomes rapidly more
degraded. This is not a very en
couraging aspect of things to those
whose interest in the country and
love of the race are deeper and
stronger than a selfish desire for
sordid gain. The only remedy we
can suggest, at present, is vigilant
watchfulness on the part of police
oflicers, and strict, prompt, uncom
promising enforcement of existing
"This country only desires to
borrow for purposes which are
directly or indirectly reproductive
and for just such purposes as these
other countries newly settled by
white men have been borrowing"
Weekly P. C-A. Aug. 4th.
It is positively certain that the
individual who penned the above
cither has not read our Loan Act or
else does not know the meaning of
the words he is using. Not one
single object for which the Loan
Act expressly states the loan is to
be raised is directly reproductive.
All of them may be said to benefit
the Kingdom and produce more
wealth amongst its citizens, perhaps,
but not one of them will directly
return a single cent to the Govern
ment to repay either the principal or
the interest of the loan. The whole
of that must come out of the
Then take the second statement
" for just such purposes as these
other countries" i.e. British Colo
nies. Where will the writer of that
article find a schedule of a Loan
Bill passed in any Colony for such
vague and ill-defined objects as this
one is. No Colony has ever dared
to ask for a loan for works not r'e
diicctly productive, such as Rail
ways, water-works, etc, bringing in
:i direct income except in very small
sums. And again what Colony or
Country however small or waiting to
lie developed has asked at oilo time
for a loan exceeding two years
revenue ? Our present Loan Act
will never attract capitalists as an
investment pure and simple aside
from political or personal consi
derations until a new schedule, of
definite objects, all or most of which
will add immediately and directly to
the government income, shall be
substituted for the present.

RECEPTION ON THE MAHIPOSA.
The Oceanic Steamship Monposa
was thrown open for the reception of
over -100 guests on the evening of
the 'Itli instant, and the ship was
gaily dressed with lanterns and bunt
ing. The guests commenced to ar
rive at 8 p.m. nnd wore received at
the gangway by Capt Howard,
Messrs. J. D. Sprockets and W. G.
Irwin looking out for the comfort of
guests on board. The electric lights,
with which the vessel is supplied,
was in use all over the vessel, and
the control which each passenger
had over the light in the staterooms
was the subject of much favorable
comment. His Majesty, Queen
Dowager Emma, II. K. II. Piincess
Likelike, Senator Miller, wife and
daughter, General Stulc and wife,
and a notable large number of our
best citizens were present. A light
refreshment was furnished to all pre
sent. The band -was on board
and played some good selections of
music. At 5) :30 and about 10 p.m.
the assemblage broke up.

The Advertiser's shipping reporter
falls into a glaring inaccuracy in trying
to correct the Bulletin's reporter about
the Canopus. He says she discharged
450 tons, and had only 50 tons left on
board total, 500 tons. The Canopus
brought 1150 tons of cargo to this port,
where did the other 050 tons go to.
The first mate of the Canopus is respon
sible for the statement that 4C0 tons of
cargo waie still left, and presumably
he knows a little more about it than the
"accurate (?) 'Tiser."

The One Price Mechanic's Bazaar is
again in the fore. Bead the advertise
ment. At the Police Court on Saturday
three drunks formed the whole calendar
in the criminal section.
It is said the Attorney-General ad
interim business costs the country just
50 per cent more than a regular Attorney-General
would do. How i3 that
for high ?
Tin: new steam-roller was put to
gether by Friday, and on Saturday a
first trial was made. It doesnt look
as if it could do as much work as the
other but it sounds as if it were doing
three times as much.
Tun Dally Advertiser has found little
else of late to fill its columns with than
criticisms of the Bulletin and its con
tents. We are truly grateful for the
Interest displayed in us and the fiec
advertising. But it seems to us that
people Who live in glass houses
(shouldn't throw stones. In our is
sue of July 7th will bo found
an item of news from New South Wales
given undor that heading by our con.
temporary on Saturday. If our contem.
porary's shipping reporter would revise
his lists of "Vessels Expected" etc, ho
would flhdat least one imaginary name
in his list, And if, instead of getting
up early one morning to get steamer
news and then making an awful noiao
over his wonderful vigilanco, ho had
got up early on Saturday morning he
would have been able to nimouuee the
steamer's arrival instead of prophesying
that it would come. Moral, bo sure you
arc till light before you attack others.
A NEW DANGER.
An alarming piece of news comes
from Paris, says the Lancet. It is
started that an official at the Ministry
of Foreign Affairs there lias been
attacked with .yellow fever, com
municated to him through a despatch
from Brazil. This, if true, is a
startling occurrence. We have re
peatedly warned our readers against
the danger of disseminating disease
by means of books and toys. We
believe circulating libraries arc com
mon sources of peril, and that many
grave and even fatal illnesses .may
bo traced to their agency. Books,
especially of the "entertaining"
class, are read by sick persons,
cither in bed when recovering from
fevers and communicable diseases
generally, or during convalescence,
when perhaps some chest affection
with a cough infects the atmosphere.
It is, probably, impossible to gnard
against this, because the organic
particles which carry the infection
or contagion may lie for weeks,
months, or porhaps years, between
the pages of a bound book, to be
dislodged at some unpropitioua
moment when the volume chances
to be handled by a susceptible person.
It would be difficult to imagine a
more powerful apparatus for the
conveyance of disease than a book.
Among the maladies most easily
communicable by this agency may
be mentioned measles, scarlet fever,
diphtheria, ordinary lsore" throat,
whooping-cough, bronchitis (perhaps
phthisis), and other chest affections,
in the course of which the lungs may
be giving off poisonous breath aud
expectorations, and disorders in
which the skin is the scat of abnor
mal changes, or may be throwing
out infective material. In short, all
that can be communicated is more
likely to bo communicated by a
book than in almost any other way.
It is obviously impracticable to
disinfect books without injuriug
them, and the plaiu inference must
be that circulating libraries are to be
regarded as possible centres for the
dissemination of discas,e and that
all books used by the sick should be
destroyed immediately after use.
Disease may be communicated by
despatches, letters, or books. It is
well that this should be
