II. IIackkki.1) & Co.
Honolulu, Sept. loth, 1883.
The above is the only communica
tion we have received in reply to our
last remarks, relative to the pro
posed live dollar payment.
"Wo believe in honest, outspoken,
fearless journalism, and advocate
candid, straight-forward, impartial
criticism of the public acts and mo
tives of public olliccrs. All free,
honorable, educated, and intelligent
men believe in this style of journa
lism and approve this method of cri
ticism. But no mnn with the breed
ing and instinct of a gentleman
would ever countenance the unbridled
blackguardism and vulgar scurrility
of some modern to-called exponents
of public opinion. It must be con
fessed that this pernicious class of
newspaper literature was long almost
unknown in Honolulu, but the last
two or three years past have pro
duced a signal and hurtful change.
At the present time it would be diffi
cult to find newspapers in any part
of the world more fluent in the use
of pot-house slang and more fertile
in tap-zoom epithets than some Ho
nolulu journals. For the latest,
brightest, and greatest specimen of
this kind of journalism see a
recent issue of The Saturday
Jress: It was never excelled by
the San Francisco Chronicle, in its
worst days. " Government mule,
nnscotched viper, branded scalawag,
brigand of journalism," etc, are
familiar and pleasant terms to the
mouths and ears of low-bred people,
but men of culture and women of
refinement shudder at their sight
and sound 'with instinctive horror.
Again in the Advertiser speaking of
the Gazette wc see "despicable
system of chicanery," " glaring
prevarications," baffled, blundering
and malicious contemporary," its
rancor utters anything that satiates
its disappointed Just for place."
A meeting of the Trade Union was
held at the Hawaiian Hotel Saturday
night, Mr. Goldsmith was in the
chair and explained the objects of
About thirty five members signed
the roll. Mr. Charles Carson of
the Advertiser acted as secretary as
sisted by Mr. C. Cavenagh. Mr.
Godfrey could not accept as he had
not signed the roll. Considerable
discussion ensued over the election
of a committee to draw a constitu
tion and by-laws, but finally Messrs.
Goldsmith, Carson, Cavenagh, Z. Y.
Squires, Wallace, Burns and Reed
were elected. Mr. Carson said they
were all brothers in a good cause and
should be friendly without disagree
ment. Mr. Murray objected to Mr.
Burns being on the committee as he
Was a boss.
Mr. Carson moved that they
should vote by affirmation to save
time. Mr. Carson moved that one
man .should be elected at' a time, and
said that some of them had republi
Mr. Carson said, when some mem
bers showed a disinclination to be
appointed on the committee, that
having signed the roll they must not
refuse, but there was nothing com
pulsory in the brotherhood. Mr
Cuthbert moved that the Committee
have power to appoint their own
ohairman and secretary, Mr. Murray
told him that every Committee had
power to do so. Me&srs. Murrry,
Buckley and Cuthbert were appoint
ed a Committee to arrange u time
and place for a 'future meeting, after
Messrs. Carson and Gojdsmith were
objected to because they were on
another Committee, Mr. Kolm re
fused to take office and Mr. J. Jordan
couldn't because he had not signed
Mr. Carson promised to give no
tice, through the papers, when the
next meeting would be held and also
undertook to notify the Committee
when thej' would be required to meet.
A vote of thanks to the chairman
closed the business.
THE OTHER ISLANDS.
J-'ibra Our Oivu CorrefcponclontH.
A big reform i needed hero in
our police matters. A man named
.Lucas -was lined for Icing drunk in
a public place (a butcher's store) ;
Dr. Endcrs, Mr. Armstrong, Mr. F.
V Hardy, and the Messrs. von
Tempsky, swore that the man was
sober, but the word of some natives
was taken against them all. It is a
well known fact that one native
policeman, John Kini, gets intox
icated, and that, upon recovering
from one of his sprees, he arrested
and dragged to the Station House
a Japanese who had, unfortunately
for himself, not recovered from his
inebriation. We wish the Marshal
would make some inquiries into the
condition of our local police matters.
Heavy rains fell hero on Sunday
night August 2(fh, and on the Mon
day 27lh, it was general throughout
the district, it was badly wanted and
everybody is jubilant, the cane has
improved much and its appearance
indicates a good crop in the future.
Mrs. C. N. Arnold and Mr. and
Mrs. Coan of Ililo anived here on
Monday evening on their return
from a trip round the island, they
started for Ililo Tuesday morning.
The mill is still engaged in grind
ing the burnt cane, the weather has
been favorable, so the cane has not
soured quickly as it would have done
under less favorable circumstances,
hence a heavy loss is not expected.
Seveial visitors for the volcano
arrived by the Iwalani on Thursday,
this is becoming quite a favorite
route for Kilauea.
Thomas Shaw, engineer at the
Waikapu mill on Maui had his leg
broken last week. lie with some
other men was slinging a smoke
stack when it swung out; Shaw
jumped backwards out of the way
but unfortunately jumped into a pit
that had been dug for the boilers
and his leg doubled under him. The
doctor says that four inches of the
bone is pulverized and that the leg
must be taken off at the knee.
XOKTII KOHALA, HAWAII.
Mr. Frank Spencer of Waimea
had a horse stolen a few weeks ago.
The thief who sold it in Ilamakua
has since been arrested and sen
tenced to eighteen months imprison
ment. A quantit' of liquor has been
seized by the police in North Kc
hala, but, as they had no secure
place in which to keep it, six cases
have been stolen.
In North Kohala a policeman went
with a wan ant to arrest a Chinaman
named Aku who presented a pistol
and threatened to kill him having
previously discharged some of the
barrels at other men. Aku was
charged with assault with a deadly
weapon, no use was made of the
evidence of the men he had threa
tened, and as through the careless
ness of some person, Aku was
charged under the wrong section of
the Penal Code he was discharged.
Correspondence is solicited on the top.

We reserve the right to excise purely
We do not hold ourselves responsible
for the opinions expressed by our cor
Mij. Editor : Please allow me a
little of your valuable space to pre
sent one argument in favor of the
use of tobacco. So much has been
said on the opposite side of the
question of late that I think a few
words in favor of the manly habit
will not be out of place.
A short time ago it was my privi
lege to travel on a small steamer
with a number of gentlemen who
occupied the windward side of the
vessel, and drove dull care away
by inhaling (and exhaling) the
fumes of the fragrant weed. Now
if I had been trained up properly, I
could have joined them in their
filthy luxury, but as it was I had
to suffer for my bad breeding. A
lady passenger also seemed not to
enjoy the various odors with which
the air was freighted, because she
had not learned to smoke.
In view of such occurrences, and
such arc by no means rare, is it not
plain that the young of both sexes
should be trained in the art of making
chimneys of their noses ?
